Commissioners say no to Habitat's $500,000 request


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - County commission-
ers decided to turn down a $500,000
request from the Highlands County
Habitat for Humanity during their
meeting Tuesday morning.
But, with the failure of the motion,
the county incurs a $575,000 debt that
has to be repaid to the federal govern-
ment for the land since it was not used
for the intended purpose.
With Commissioner Edgar Stokes
and newly appointed Chairman Don
Bates voting yes, the motion to
approve the request died for lack of a


Money would have been used toward
building 59 homes and commercial space


majority when Commissioners Jeff
Carlson and Barbara Stewart voted no.
Commissioner Guy Maxcy was not
present at the meeting.
The granted money would have
gone towards building the infrastruc-
ture needed for 59 single family
homes and 10,000-square-foot of
commercial space in Sebring at 1400
Martin Luther King Blvd.
According to County Development


Services Director Mark Hill, a major
part of the request revolved around
Habitat finishing the project and hav-
ing 20 units occupied by June 30,
2011.
If the construction was not complet-
ed and occupied on time, the county
could have to repay up to $1,448,750
in granted money to the state and fed-
eral governments.
To get the construction done, the


county grant for infrastructure had to
be combined with loans from two
local banks, and there was some doubt
as to if those loans were secured.
Commissioner Jeff Carlson stated
that the government funding should be
contingent on getting the local fund-
ing, which Carlson asserted was not
there.
"It would be prudent to have a letter
of commitment from those banks you
mentioned before coming before us,"
Carlson asserted.

Saturday evening to show their support.


Gravley takes


top prize in


Heartland Idol


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Even
though Frostproof resident
Jared,Gravley blew out a
flip-flop, he still managed
to take top honors, and
$2,000, in the final round
of Heartland Idol Saturday
night on the Circle in
Sebring.
Gravley captivated the
audience when he pulled
his new bride Christy from
the crowd and sang "Then"
.by Brad Paisley directly to
her.
She cried, and so did sev-
eral of the judges.
"If you people have not
invited a friend down here,
you are making a mistake. I
cannot believe the talent at
this event," said the usually
praise-stingy Idol judge Jim
McCollum.
McCollum subtracted

Amy McCoy because she

Puppies during her perform-
ance of "Come Monday" by
Jimmy Buffett.
McCoy still took home
$1,000 for her runner-up
spot, which allows the
perky performer with the
angelic voice to return to
the competition next year.
Contestant Shannon
Marrero took third place
and picked up $500 in prize
money to boot.
Marrero proved she had
possibly the strongest
singing voice of the group
with her rendition of "And I
Am telling You" by Jennifer
Hudson, which is definitely
not a safe song for ama-
teurs, according to judge
Vickie Jones.
Although Julie Temple
captured a sold fourth
place, and $250 in prize
money, with "Anyway" by

downtown Sebring.


Martina McBride, the crowd
thought she was better than
that and expressed their dis-
pleasure clearly with boos
and complaints for a few
minutes after the announce-
ment.
Mark Brignoni landed in
fifth, and $125, with his
rendition of "Come Back to
Me" by David Cook, but
according to the judges, it
was not the right song for
his voice..
"That was not your best
performance," said Judge
Mike Henry.
"It came down to your
song choice," McCollum
added.
The 19-year-old Gravley
also took the People's
Choice Award earlier


Saturday evening with his
comfortable rendition of
"Margaritaville."
Gravley exhibited his
mastery of stage presence
when he performed sitting
on the edge of the custom-
made platform, with one
flop, a Band-Aid on his
other heel, legs swinging
between the two parrots,-
and wearing flowered
"Buffett-style" shirt.
And what is he going to
do with his big check?
"Pay off a credit card and
save the rest to move to
Nashville," Gravley said.
He hopes to start a
singing career in the near
future, and if Heartland Idol
fans count, he looks like he
has a good start.

AVON PARK - Maria
Sutherland, project manager
for 'the city, was selected
Monday afternoon by the city
council to serve as interim
city manager when Sarah
Adelt steps down from that
position following the Nov.
23 regular city council meet-
ing.
"I'm pleased and sur-
prised," said Sutherland
Tuesday morning..
"Obviously, because it's an
interim position, things that
are in place will be carried by
momentum. People know
what they're doing and we
have mutual respect. We're
all working together for the
common good. There are no_
egos or anything like that.
We're all here for a purpose
- to make Avon Park an
even better place to live.
Hopefully, businesses will
take up that mantra."

cutes and implements public
policy as created by the city
council, makes reports and
recommendations to the
council, ensures that all city

Wildfire danger is on the rise


BY CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@niewssun.coin
SEBRING - Bad news on the weather
front. Florida continues in what is now a four-
year drought. According to Robyn Felix, the
media manager for the Southwest Florida
Water Management District, 15 of the 16
counties within the district are still on man-
dated water restrictions. This includes
Highlands County where lawns may only be
watered once a week.
The lack of water and the recent high winds
have dried out not just the soil, but the vege-
tation as well.
"With the lack of substantial rainfall from
the past couple of weeks, Glades and
Highlands counties are the two driest areas in
the state of Florida," said Melissa Yunas,
wildfire mitigation specialist with the
Division of-Forestry.
"The Division of Forestry has responded to


'Glades and Highlands
counties are the two driest
areas in the state of Florida.'

six wildfires in Highlands County since Nov.
1 ," she added.
Florida is at hazard for brush fires all year
long, not just during the dry season which
typically occurs between December and
April. But this year the dangers are greater.
Using the Keetch Byram Drought Index -
which quantifies the dryness of the soil and
its duff layer and increases for every day
there is no rain - Highlands County is 612
scale of 0 to 800 (zero being saturated soil).

productive lives.
Through programs such as
Go Girls and SWAT

Tobacco), youth are given
tools to help them grow into
young adults that have
strong self-esteem and can
make good decisions. Many
other programs are also
available that support the
health and well-being of
children, adults and families
including WIC (Women,
Infants and Children nutri-
tion and food supplementa-
tion program), Healthy Start,

third time
By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY

SEBRING - The School
Board of Highlands County

appoint a new chair and vice-
chair.
SWally Randall was select-
ed as chairman, his third time
in that role, and 'Richard
Norris was selected to be
vice-chairman.
Randall and Norris will

vice-president of the corpora-
tion. Mike Averyt, director of
finance and planning, will
serve as treasurer of the cor-
poration and Connie Scoby,
who is secretary for the
board, will serve as secretary
of the corporation.
.After the meeting Randall
said, "Next year is going to
be a continuation of last year.
We've been warned that
2009-10 and probably 2010-
11 are going to be very diffi-
cult.
"Hopefully
the economy
will turn
around, but
we'll plan fishermen know
hard times
and hope for
a' pleasant Randal
surprise."
Randallso spokadded of that reces-
sions take time to work them-
selves out.
"The tide is going out," he
said, "and fishermen know
that's not the best to fish.
We're looking forward to the
tide coming back in."
He also spoke of the dis-
trict's commitment to educa-
tion.
"Thomas Jefferson said
that education is the back-
bone of democracy," Randall
said. "All of us know how
important education is.
That's why we're so commit-
ted and dedicated."

Dry season has started early this year


Continued from page 1A
The normal index for this
time of year, Yunas said, is
between 271 and 420.
Yunas wants everyone to
remember the primary cause
of fires during the dry sea-
son is people - from care-
less campers to smokers
throwing their lit cigarette
butts out the window.
"The Division of Forestry
is asking everyone to be
cautious and use common
sense when it comes to
using anything that can
cause a spark," Yunas said.
"The grass and the under-
brush are dry and can be
ignited. quickly."


Sutherland named interim AP manager


Continued from page 1A
ported, by Council member Joe Wright who
had been going to nominate her. Council
Member AlJoe Hinson put forward
Sutherland.
There was a fourth option: bringing in a
member of the Range Riders, a group of
mostly retired city and county managers
who volunteer to help municipalities and
counties in situations just like this one.
Provided through the Florida League of
Cities, the Range Riders also help govern-
ments do background checks on applicants,
providing the service at no cost.
While the council, in a 3-2 vote, picked
Sutherland to be the interim city manager,
it also decided to use the Range Riders to
help with the city manager search. The
Riders will be asked to provide a short list
of 10 names, but if there is a deluge of
applications, the council would like a
longer list - of perhaps 40 names - from


which to choose.
In breaking the 2-2 tie on selecting
Sutherland - Hinson and Deputy Mayor
Brenda Gray voted in favor - Mayor
Sharon Schuler praised Green and said she
was voting for Sutherland for two basic
reasons: Green is already.swamped with
work, and Sutherland's office is on the sec-
ond floor, near the city manager's office,
meaning she would be more accessible to
citizens.
While Wright suggested Sutherland be
given a pro-rated pay raise for the time she
serves as city manager, the council decided
not to do so. One problem cited was that
acting fire chief Steve Marquart has not
been given a similar raise.
Hall said it was past time for the council
to develop a policy for such situations, and
that it had to be consistent.
When asked if she would take on the
responsibility, Sutherland said yes, as long
as it wasn't for more than four months.


County denies Habitat request


Continued from page 1A
dent Chip Boring, the two
local banks were behind the
project, and the banks were
waiting to see if the county
would support the infrastruc-
*ture.
"I spoke to one of those
bankers you mentioned and I
asked if his bank was commit-
ted and he said no. I asked if
he was waiting on contin-
gency or government commit-
ment and he said no," Carlson
countered.
Members for the communi-
ty spoke for and against the
project, and while some felt
the desperate need for the
housing, others felt that the
gamble was too much.
"It seems like the risk for
failure is way too high," said
Jack Ritchie, Highlands
County Homeowners
Association.
"This is a great project, in
an area that needs it desper-
ately, but the question is what
kind of support do we have. I
hear a lot about the adminis-
trative costs of this organiza-
tion, and' am very concerned
about that. If this fails, what
are the consequences, and
who is responsible for it?"
Ritchie asked.
"Life has no guarantees,"
Boring answered.
'"There are people waiting
to get into a their new home,"
Sebring resident Barbara
Walker said about those who
have already performed their
"sweat equity" necessary to
get a home.
"And we desperately need
this project," she added.
Mike Secor, a Habitat
board member and president
of the Highlands County
Developers Association, also
spoke in favor of the project.
"As a developer, I would
like to have to come to the
county with pre-qualified
buyers and ask for infrastruc-
ture. I don't see any reason
why this project could not be
done. We have an extremely
strong need in this county for
affordable housing," Secor


said.
"From my extensive time
doing these types of projects,
what he (Carlson) brought up
is not uncommon," said John
Hawthorne, chief operations
officer for the local Habitat.
"Successful projects across
the country happens when the
government steps forward
first. The private sector looks
for the reassurance of the gov-
ernment. What is typically
done is contingency agree-
ments are put in place,"
Hawthorne said.
Originally, the funding for
the project was secured from a
grant that was de-obligated by
the Legislature, according to
Boring, and that was why
Habitat was seeking county
assistance.


Boring went on to say that
the investment was nhot a risk
because ad valorem taxes
would more than repay the
county in due time.
If the motion to fund the
project had passed, the county
would have had to juggle
money in other restricted
areas, or dip into contingency
money in a deficit budget sea-
son, according to Bates, and
that was not the best of
options.
Habitat board member
Mike Jacobson showed his
disappointment with thetbun-
ty for not approving the issue.
"You are willing to pay
$575,000 for dirt that may
never be developed and deny
59 people who are waiting for
homes," Jacobsoin ,said.

Choose wisely


e wish
WAvon Park
City Mana-
ger Sarah Adelt well
as she moves to
Frostproof to be-
come the city clerk
there.
Certainly she served dur-
ing difficult times here, when
a decline in tax revenue ham
strung both her and the city
council as they dealt with the
budget.
While the economy is
improving in some areas,
cities are still at a disadvan-
tage and will likely remain so
for the next year.
This'is why we hope the
city council will take its time
to make its selection of a new
city manager.
We have faith in the city's
staff, especially its depart-
ment heads, and feel the
council has the time for
thoughtfulness.
The new city manger will
have to be experienced, and
have a strong background in
budget building. An under-
standing of the grant process,
as well as knowledge of grant
providing organizations, both
public and private, will be of
great help as there may still
be opportunities for federal
stimulus money.
Of course, as a news gath-
ering institution, we hope the
council chooses someone
with a thorough understand-
ing of Government in the
Sunshine laws and a dedica-
tion to being truly open.
While the vision of Avon
Park's future should naturally
come from the council, repre-
senting the people as it does,
a city manager must also
have the same vision. Only
by working together can the
city increase its momentum
and accomplish its goals.
Even more important are
,the skills to turn abstract
ideas into tangible reality.
While the council charts
the course, it will be the city


manager who steers the ship
of state.
That means, the individual
chosen will need to be able to
say no, as well as yes.
He or she needs to have the
courage to make difficult
decisions, and the empathy to
connect with citizens and
staff.
The selection process
comes in three stages - col-
lecting resumes, creating a
short list and making the
final choice.
We're told to expect many
applications. Council mem-
ber Joe Wright said Monday
afternoon that Hardee County
had recently advertised three
positions and received more
than 200. applications. The
draw back was that only 38
of them were qualified.
However, with many cities
having to make the same kind
of cuts in their budgets that
Avon Park had to make, there
is a wealth of qualified indi-
viduals from whom to
choose.
This is why, given the dif-
ficulty of the position and the
need for experience and
knowledge, it is essential the
council not rush.
In fact, the council seems
prepared to do a thorough
job. With two members pre-
pared to step down at the end
of the year - neither George
Hall nor Wright will be
returning - this council has
already decided to defer the
final decision until the new
council is seated in 2010.
In the meantime Maria
Sutherland, the city's project
manager, will act as interim
city manager between Nov.
24 and whenever a new city
manager is chosen, perhaps
in late January or early
February. Sutherland made it
clear she is not interested in
becoming city manager on a
permanent basis.
We think that is wise. What
Avon Park needs now is
someone who can take the
helm with a fresh eye and
energetic leadership.

Plenty to do in the
Heartland
Editor:
Wow! Who says there is nothing to
do in the Heartland?
Last week was a busy week. First we
started out with the Florida
Flywheeler's 14th annual Fall Fuel Up.
Then there are not enough words to
praise the Little Theater's production of
"Fiddler on the Roof;" it was just ter-
rific. Saturday the Sebring Circle was
host to the monthly antique cars.
Saturday evening the Heartland Idol
had its finale. The talent was so great
that most of us sitting in our lawn
chairs were glad we did not have to try
to judge these performances. Sunday
afternoon, St John's Methodist Church
on Grand Prix Drive had the Heartland
Pops Premiere Performance, playing
some of the best known loved patriotic
songs. This newly formed Pops Group
put on a spectacular program with only
half a dozen practices.
The talent in the Heartland is just
amazing.

Farm-city partnerships
improve quality of life
Editor:
This Thanksgiving Day, as we gather
with family and friends to count our
blessings, let's give thanks for the
bounty we enjoy not just on this holi-
day, but every day. The safe, plentiful
food that is available to us and the
products used to produce the clothing,
housing, medicines, fuel and other
products we use on a daily basis, didn't
just appear in a store. They got there
thanks to a tremendous partnership of
farmers and ranchers, processors, bro-
kers, truckers, shippers, advertisers,
wholesalers and retailers.
In appreciation of this farm-city part-
nership, the President of the United
States annually proclaims the week
leading up to an including
Thanksgiving Day as National Farm-
City Week.,

efficient production and marketing
chain. Farmers and ranchers are just the
beginning of that chain. Farm workers,
researchers, processors, shippers, truck.
drivers, inspectors, wholesalers,
agribusinesses, marketers, advertisers,
retailers and consumers all play impor-
tant roles in the incredible productivity
that has made our nation's food and
fiber system the envy of the world.
This week, as we celebrate
Thanksgiving, let's remember the vital
farm-city partnerships that have done
so much to improve the quality of our
lives. Rural and urban communities
working together have made the most
of our rich agricultural resources and
have made significant contributions to
our health and well-being and to the
strength of our nation's economy. For
this, we can give thanks.

Health care is a human
concern
Editor:
Wearing the mask of free enterprise
and flying the colors of "the private
sector" health insurance companies, all
1,400 of them, now rant and slander
attempts to deprive them of their ill
deserved billions and call "single pay"
and public option programs socialism,
the end of democracy as we know it,
while they syphon dollars for profit and
payroll out of a system that should be
devoted to paying medical bills.
Corrupted by huge campaign contri-
butions and promises of more to follow,
congressmen flock to their banner
blaming rising costs in health care on
everything except their inflated insur-
ance profits, the insurance bandits bribe
their way through the halls of Congress
contest that their bought and paid for
legislators will frustrate all attempts to
represent the people and pass a health
care plan in the public interests.
An army of lobbyists in the employ
of the insurance and drug industries
swarm around Congress and the press,
disseminating disinformation, a full
court press of lies and distortion.


a', * H4 v


"Harry and Louise" revisited, big
money in action. By raising sham
issues, attention is diverted away from
passing legislation in the public inter-
est, business as usual is advanced and
the richest nation in the world contin-
ues to have the most expensive and
least efficient health care of any devel-
oped country.
Congressmen publish editorials and
op-ed pieces written by lobbyists, part
of the price for campaign contributions.
One thing should be now be abundantly
clear; that if the billions of dollars that
the insurance industry takes out of the
health care system annually was devot-
ed to the payment of health care
providers, the total cost to patients
would be greatly reduced.
Only when our elected representa-
tives begin to look to the interests of
the people rather than the lobbyists and
those who fill their campaign coffers
with an expectation of "pay back" will
we have a system of care with the
interests of the patient as paramount.
Health care is a human concern, not
a profit center for the insurance indus-
try.

Tea Party attendees
in for surprise
Editor:
I wish to take this opportunity to
thank my daughter, Mary Lynda, for
the wonderful job she did in getting the
Sebring Tea Party so well organized.
The Tea Party was held this past
Saturday on the Circle in Sebring.
Along with a salute to our veterans
there was good and informative conver-
sation regarding the issues facing our
nation today and how we as patriots
can participate in serving our country.
We were all surprised by the appear-
ance of the Rivoli Revue, the original
Tea Party Express musicians as well as
our own Heartland Idol, Doug Gandy.
What a wonderful experience!
Many, many people were pleased.
For some it was their first Tea Party.
Thank you sweet daughter for a job
well done.

Voters League reaches out to veterans


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
County veterans are fortunate
to have Joseph A. Dionne as
their service director.
However, if Dionne's father's
ship hadn't sunk we may not
have him as our veterans
service director.
It was only 26 degrees
when Edward Dionne's ship
sank while crossing the
Atlantic during World War II.
He suffered a severe case of
frostbite that affected his
ability to withstand cold
weather.
Issues concerning veterans
will be the topic of the
Highlands County Voters
League meeting at the group
reaches out to veterans. The
meeting begins at 5 p.m.
Thursday with a social hour
and dinner following at 6
p.m. at Homer's Restaurant.
Born and raised near
Washington D.C., Edward
Pionne traded his govern-.
ment job for the small town
of Lake Placid where Joe
Dionne graduated from high
school, earned a bachelor's
degree from South Florida
Community College and then
joined the Army in February
1969.
After retiring from the
Army in 1999 Joe Dionne
found the grant money to


build a new 80-by-40-foot
addition to the Veterans
Service Office on George
Boulevard in Sebring, where
he is currently employed as
the Veterans Service director.
Joe Dionne is now a retired
sergeant major with more
than 30 years service to the
U.S. Army. He is a graduate
of the U.S. Army Sergeants
Major Academy at Fort Bliss
in El Paso, Texas. His last
four assignments in the U.S.
Army . before retirement
include: chief instructor, U.S.
Army Command Sergeants
Major Program at Fort Bliss;
center sergeant major, U.S.
Army & Korean Army
Supply Distribution Center at
Taegu, South Korea; Port of
Pusan sergeant major,
Defense Logistics Agency,
Pusan, South Korea; and
finally sergeant major,
Personnel & Training
Division, U.S. Army
Reserve, states of Utah,
Wyoming, North Dakota,
South Dakota.
His civilian work experi-
ence is in the area of finan-
cial consulting, currency
exchange rates, and financial
analysis in the banking and
international logistics field.
His military education
includes United States Army
Sergeants Major Academy
(Class 44),


Noncommissioned Officer
Logistics Program, Defense
Depot Operations and
Management Course,
Defense Financial
Management Course,
Defense Environmental
(Hazard Waste) Course, and
several other US Army and
military service courses.
His civilian education
includes an associate's
degree from South Florida
Community College and a
bachelor's degree in business
management/economics from
Florida Southern College.
Dionne has been awarded
the Legion of Merit, Defense
Meritorious Service Medal,
Army Meritorious Service
Medal (three awards), Joint
Services Commendation
Medal, Army Commendation
Medal (four awards), Joint
Services Achievement
Medal.
Last month medical direc-
tor of Emergency Medical
Care Dr. Cary Pigman gave a
PowerPoint presentation that
enlightened members of the
Voters League with a better
understanding of the statis-
tics that affect health care
insurance and providers
According to statistics, 84
percent of Americans already
have health insurance. Of the
84 percent, '59 percent have


their insurance provided by
an employer, 27 percent is
government funded (12.1
percent of which is
Medicaid) and only 9.1 per-
cent purchased their own
health insurance. That leaves
approximately 40 million
adults who do not have any
type of health insurance.
Those interviewed stated
that they did not have insur-
ance because they could not
afford the high premiums.
One third of this number are
19-29 years of age.
And according to the
Census Bureau, part of the
problem may stem from the
fact that the official poverty
thresholds were developed
more than 40 years ago and
no not take into account the
rising standards of living
expenses - such as childcare
- which are necessary to hold
a job. If these costs were con-
sidered, many young couples
would fall into the poverty
level.
One comprehensive survey
shows that nationwide costs
averaged $217 per month for
single coverage and $483 for
families. However those
averages ranged from $1,000
for 18-year-olds to $5,000 for
persons 60-64 years of age.
Single policies also ranged
from $1,200 in Wisconsin to
$8,537 in Massachusetts.


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Although the official
birthday of the U.S. Marine Corps was
Nov. 10, the South Central Florida
Military Officers Association will
observe the Corps' 234th birthday on at
their regularly scheduled monthly
luncheon on Saturday.
Major Daniel Fennell, USMC (Ret.)
will be the guest speaker for the lunch-
eon being held at the Military Sea
Services Museum in Sebring.
Each of the military services birth-


days this past year has been recognized
with a luncheon and members of the
service being honored explained MOAA
officials. A representative of the service
being honored has been the luncheon
speaker.
A career Marine, Fennell enlisted in
the Corps in 1953 and served as a rifle-
man in the Korean War. Raising through
the ranks to sergeant, Fennell received a
direct commission in 1963 and served in
Vietnam. He retired in 1998, completing
36 years service.


Major Fennell and his wife now live
in Okeechobee, where he has been
active in the American Legion post
there.
Luncheon cost for members and
guests is $15 per person payable at the
door. However reservations are required
and may be made by calling one of the
following MOAA officials: LTC Mabel
Langland at 314-8432; Capt. Lou
Brough at 655-2344; Lt. Col. Tor
Rothman at 699-9125. All reservations
are due no later than Thursday.

Health Department

and Kids Dent partner

to prevent decay


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - Kid's
Dent of Highlands County
is a school-based dental
program under the leader-
ship of Dr. Stephen Hulen.
that provides dental screen-
ing exams for all second-
and third-graders. '
Sealants and some
restorative and endodontic
treatment for selected chil-
dren will be given at the
Lake Placid site of the
Highlands County Health
Department, 106 N Main
Ave., from 8 a.m. until 1
p.m. Friday.
Dr. Barbara Platte and
her staff along with Dr.
Stephen Hulen and his staff
will be administering these
services. There are approxi-
mately 30 children who
have been previously
screened by Dr. Hulen and
his staff. If no dental decay
in the permanent first
molars is detected, sealants
will be placed. Sealants
will protect these per-
manant teeth from decay.


Sealants have been avail-
able for almost 25 years,
but many dentists do not
take full advantage of them.
They received approval
from the American Dental
Association (ADA) Council
on Dental Materials in
1976. Studies have shown
that sealants are very effec-
tive in preventing dental
decay
Sealants are composed of
various resin systems
which may include cyano-
acrylates, polyurethanes
and BIS-GMA products.
The most commonly used
products are generally com-
prised of composite resins
used as tooth colored fill-
ing materials. Many studies
have been done over the
last 20 years to determine
the safety and efficacy of
these products
If you have an interest in
having your child's teeth
sealed, call Children's
Dental of Highlands at 382-
7257 for a new patient
exam appointment.

High hopes on tap for



versatile Blue Streaks

By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com 1
SEBRING - With high
praise come high expecta-
tions and, in the right
hands, a higher level of.........A
intensity to prepare to ."-
meet those expectations.7
"We got invited to a
tournament in Bartow by
their coach," Sebring .-
head basketball coach
Princeton Harris said of ..
the Class 4A State
Semifinalist Yellow .
Jackets. "It's a real prestiL-
gious tournaments with
top. teams from around
the state. I was kind of
shocked they thought to
invite us, but .he said he'd
seen us in a few games
and really liked what he
saw.
"He also said that if
we'd gotten by Kathleen,
he wanted no part of com-
ing down here to play us,"
Harris continued.
"Bartow would have been
our next game in the
regional playoffs."
And so it was, on the
eve of the inaugural game
of the 2009-10 basketball
season, things were busi-
ness as usual for the Blue
Streaks - business as
usual for a team with the
expectations brought on
by this sort of recognition
- running through the
offensive sets, racing to
get to their spots in the News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE

crashing the boards with up, taking last year's district championship with them into
a new and tougher district, this season.

Rally falls short for Streaks


Rough-and-tumble game sees 3 yellow cards


BY ELISHA KLATT
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE WALES
The Sebring boys soccer
team fell short Monday in a
2-1 district loss to Lake
Wales. despite a late game
rally, and a goal from senior
Buck Schroeder.
The Streaks lost the
lead after surrendering a
goal just five minutes in
But the defense was able to
hold on, thanks to
the tremendous game
played by keeper Jesse
Ouverson and junior sweeper
Derek Drummond.
Trailing by the 1-0 mar-
gin midway through the
opening half, Lake Wales
was on a break away and
fired a shot that was deflect-
ed by a charging Ouverson.
Bounding across the face
of the goal, it was soon res-


cued by Drummond and stop-
per Cody Watson.
Ouverson who totaled dou-
ble digit saves on the
night, was not finished being
tested, as with 12 minutes
to play before halftime,
Sebring committed a penalty
in the box leading to a Lake
Wales penalty kick.
The shot sailed high over
the bar, and the Streaks
breathed a sigh of releif as
the game remained 1-0 at
thehalf.
As the second half began,
the rough-and-tumble match
that saw numerous fouls,
only got worse as two yellow
cards were given to Lake
Wales, and one to Sebring.
However, with time run-
ning down, the Streaks were
not about to give up just yet.

James gesture grand

but misguided


Those that know my
background might think I'd
be all for the recent pro-
posal made by LeBron
James - that the NBA uni-
versally retire Michael
Jordan's number 23.
And my initial instinct
was to think, "Wow, that
would be kind of cool."
I grew up a Bulls fan,
after all, and the team's
practice facility is in my
home town.
I bore witness to the
entirety of Jordan's career
and his first house was two
neighborhoods over from
mine - I actually was the
only other customer in the
local video store on a win-
tery Wednesday night in
the early 90s when he
came in, but of course was
too petrified to actually
approach him.
The excitement he
brought to the team, the
fans, the city, even before
the championship years,
was something to behold.
However bad the Bulls
teams were during his
early years, he alone made
for must watch television.
It was always a rare treat
when an athlete on one of
"my" teams reached the
standard of a Sports
Illustrated cover, and
Jordan made it routine.
He took shoe marketing,
as well as the marketing of
an athlete overall, to a
whole new level, and of
course, his achievements
on the court were just as
remarkable-.
So it is with the back-
ground, and having half a
brain, that has me respect
and agree with some of
what James said in his dec-
laration to switch from his
current jersey number, 23.
"If you see 23, you think
about Michael Jordan."
James said. "You see
game-winning shots, you


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
think about Michael
Jordan; you see guys fly
through the air, you think
of Michael Jordan."
But while I may feel the
same way, I think he's
blowing it out of propor-
tion a bit.
"There would be no
LeBron James, no Kobe
Bryant, no Dwayne Wade
if there wasn't Michael
Jordan first."
Really?
There might not be
James, Bryant or Wade
enjoying the mega-million
dollar endorsement deals
without what Michael did
from the marketing stand-
point - which I really kind
of hope is what he means,
because to imply that they
wouldn't be professional
basketball players if not
for Jordan, as if there was
some barrier to their pro-
fessional dreams that he
broke down, well, that's
just silly.
It's not as if there
weren't other stars of the
era to emulate.
Even old friends, who
were there with me during
the Jordan era, didn't nec-
essarily view him as their
favorite player.
My buddy Tylcr pre-
ferred the gritty, hard-
nosed play of Charles
Barkley. and old friend
Pete was commonly known

News-Sun * Wednesday, November 18, 2009


Continued from 1B
game-like intensity.
"Our practices have been
very intense," head coach
Princeton Harris said. "The
guys are really working hard,
getting after it."
The reasons for the hard
work, and optimism, are
plenty - beginning with a
large core back from last
year's 19-6 season record, a
second seed in the District
10-4A tournament and even-
tual tournament champi-
onship.
And a big part of that core
got a little bigger, in the
meantime.
"'Jewel' stretched out
another inch since last year,"
Harris said of now 6-foot-9
senior center Robert
Campbell. "And he's got a 7-
foot-2 wingspan. ,
"He was a little tentative at
times last year, coming off a
foot injury from the year
before," Harris continued.
"He's a lot more confident
with it now and will be a real
presence in the middle for us.
He's also worked on his
jumper a lot and can hit it up
to 12 feet, which will cause
all sorts of match-up prob-
lems."
Also back will be forwards
'Mighty' Joe Young and
Tevin Toney, 6-foot-4 and 6-
foot-3, respectively, bringing
strength, power and added
versatility.
"With Joe, you know what
you're getting night to
night," Harris said. "He'll
rebound, hustle, provide
pressure on defense and he
can step out to 15 feet.
"Tevin is vesatile and a
luxury for us," Harris contin-
ued. "He can play and defend
four spots, is our defensive
stopper and is real strong on
the boards."
So the front line looks to
be quite a handful for
Sebring opponents this year,
with the only drop-off head-
ing into the back court is in
height, and experience.
At one guard spot will be
Devin Clarke, lightning
quick with a scorer's mental-
ity.

Sebring head coach Princeton Harris works with the team
Monday, getting their defensive positioning down just right
as the team readied for it's pre-season opener Tuesday
night at the Bill Jarrett Tip-Off Tournament in Avon Park.


"We reeled him in a bit last
year but he's really grown in
leadership and we're going to
put a lot more on him this
year," Harris said. "He brings
so much, and when he needs
to reach deep down for some-
thing extra, he can."
A key newcomer to the
back court will be freshman
guard Marcus Dewberry
who, while having to deal
with a learning curve, has the
talent to make the leap.
"He's the first freshman
I've ever brought up to varsi-
ty," Harris said. "He needs to
work on his defense and
adjust to the speed and size
of the players at this level.
But he can shoot the ball
from deep, handles it well
and has great court vision."
Adding to the mix will be
Toby Solebello, a 6-foot-3
shooter who averaged 18
points per game on junior
varsity last season, and the


power and speed of 6-foot-3
forward Zack Bullock.
Adarrius Hollinger, Josh
Heflin and Ricky Rivera will
also be counted on as con-
tributors as the team heads
into its new District 5-5A
schedule, laden with Polk
County teams.
"It's definitely a step up in
competition, Polk County
teams are very good and very
quick," Harris said. "But
with our defense, inside pres-
ence, versatility and the mis-
matches we can create, we
can play with anybody and
be competitive."
The Streaks opened up the
Bill Jarrett Tip-Off
Tournament against
Clewiston at Avon Park
Tuesday night and will face
Mulberry in Thursday's 6
p.m. game.
See Friday's News-Sun for
a recap of the contest with
Clewiston.


James a bit off base


Sebring prepares for


Polk-laden district


Continued from 1B
as "Doc," interestingly
because his favorite player
was James' second favorite,
Julius "Dr. J" Erving.
And it's not as if there
were no shoe contracts for
players, or marketing ven-
tures.
Larry Bird and Magic
Johnson were already
hawking their Converse
lines before Jordan came
into the league.
And while Jordan took
that to a whole new level,
as well as helped the popu-
larity of the NBA itself
explode, things were
already on an upward swing
thanks to Magic and Larry.
As for the pioneering
aspect, in the game itself, it
was men like Earl Lloyd,'


the first African-American
player to suit up in the
NBA during the 1950-51
season.
Or Chuck Cooper, the
first African-American
drafted into the league.
Or, really, any of the
black players that endured
the hardships during the
50s and 60s.
Odd that James says he'll
now wear number 6 for
Erving, when if you were to
combine greatness and pio-
neering, the number 6 of
Bill Russell would seem a
better choice.
Winner of 11 champi-
onships, outspoken on the
rights and treatment of
black players, the first
African-American head
coach.


Penalty kick rebound sinks Streaks


Continued from 1B
In the last twenty minutes
of play, they dominated the
field with precise
ball movement and well-
executed give-and-
goes, which netted them
several scoring chances.
One such chance came on
the leg of Watson, who after
manuvering through two
Lake Wales defenders blast-
ed a shot from the 40-yard
line to the top left comer of
the goal.
It was defended but
forced a corner kick as the
diving keeper touched it


away with 13 minutes left in
the game.
The Streaks showed
amazing poise and determi-
nation, as with time running
down they continued to con-
trol the field, and create
chances. However, inside
stoppage time, Drummond
was called for an infraction
in the box which lead to
Lake Wales' second penalty
kick of the night.
This time, though, despite
a great save from
Ouverson, a Highlander was
able to knock in the rebound
and take a 2-0 lead with less


than two minutes left in reg-
ulation.
Just a minute later, as
hope was beginning to fade,
Schroeder took a throw in
from Octavio Galvan and
found the net, bringing the
lead back down to one.
Sebring wasn't quite able
to pull off another goal in the
remaining seconds, though,
and the game ended with
the Streaks trailing 2-1.
The Streaks look to get
back on the winning track
Thursday as they welcome
Ridge to Firemen's Field in
district play.

I've read arguments on
message boards, regarding
this topic, and often it
devolves into such quib-
bling as to if Jordan was
better than Wilt, or Magic,
or Oscar Robertson, or
Russell.
Yet when discussing the
retiring of a number
throughout a league, there
is one standard of greatness
that it must be measured
by.
And while I think, as a
player, Jordan was one of
the best that ever played, I
do know that he was no
Jackie Robinson.

Almost everyone will deal with cataracts


Cataracts are one of the'
more common ocular condi-
tions we see in the optomet-
ric profession. Most of us
will develop cataracts as a
natural course of aging over
time, and eventually need to
have them removed.
A cataract is simply an
opacification of the normally
clear crystalline lens located
directly behind the iris, or
colored part of the eye. As
the opacity becomes more
dense over time, it hinders
the patient's ability to see as
well as they once did.
Depending on the type of
cataract that forms, com-
plaints may consist of:
blurred vision (more at dis-
tance than atnear), glare
(especially at night with
oncoming headlights or
streetlights), difficulty read-
ing (due to the sensation of
dimness, or not having
enough light), reduced color
perception, or may not pres-
ent with any complaints at
all.
Cataracts result from a
variety of causes. The most
common reason for develop-
ing a cataract is age. Trauma
(ocular or head contusion),
toxic (use of steroids and
other medications), and
intraocular inflammation can
all lead to cataracts.
Radiation, intraocular
tumors, and degenerative
ocular disease (i.e. retinitis
pigmentosa) are also associ-


ated with cataract
development.
Certain systemic
diseases are linked
to cataract forma-
tion, including:.
diabetes (cataracts
often develop rapid-
ly), hypocalcemia,
Wilson's disease,
myotonic dystro-
phy, and Down's
syndrome to name a
few.


Focal
Point
Valerie Moulds


More than 1.7 million
cataract surgeries are per-
formed every year in the
United States. A cataract
does not have to be "ripe"
before surgery takes place,
thanks to modern surgery
techniques. Today, 2.75 mm
incisions are the standard.
Sutures are rarely necessary
and recovery time is rapid.
When a cataract is
removed, a man-made
implant is inserted in its
place in order to improve the
patient's vision. Fortunately,
technology continues to
improve. New implants are
available that can allow
patients to have distance,
intermediate, and near
vision, in many cases with-
out the use of bifocals. Just a
few examples of the latest
technology in premium
implants include: the
ReSTOR multifocal and
Crystalens. Each premium
lens has distinct characteris-
tics that make them an ideal


match for certain
patients. The early
results of the ReS
TOR multifocal
indicate that it pro-
vides predictable
visual acuity, a
greater depth of,
focus, as well as
UV protection. Only
your eye surgeon
can determine if


one of these newer
multifocal implants would be
right for you.
Whenever a patient's
vision is not good enough to
accommodate his lifestyle,
cataract surgery is necessary.
Referral to a cataract sur-
geon is appropriate when the
patient's vision cannot be
improved with a change in
glasses. Cataract surgery
may be performed for rea-
sons other than to improve
visual acuity.
Surgery may be needed as
therapy for ocular disease
(i.e. lens-related glaucoma)
or" to manage ocular disease
more effectively (i.e. moni-
toring diabetic retinopathy).
A referral may be made
when the cataract has .
become so dense that it pre-
cludes a view of the back of
the eye in a diabetic patient.
The eye doctor has to be
able to see the retina in
order to screen the patient
for diabetic retinopathy.
In contrast, cataract sur-
gery should be delayed for a


longer period of time in
patients who have macular
degeneration. The visual out-
come may not be as good as
expected since some of the
vision loss may possibly be
due to the macular degenera-
tion. A more dramatic
improvement will be noticed
by the patient if they can
wait for the cataract to
progress to a more mature
level.
If a patient with macular
degeneration chooses not to
wait, they need to under-
stand that cataract removal
may not improve their vision
in the way they expect.
Brightness and color percep-
tion may be better, but it's
impossible to guarantee
improvement in clarity
depending on the severity of
the macular degeneration.
It is rare in today's age of
medical technology for a
cataract to require urgent
treatment. Those patients
who decline surgical
removal of their cataracts
should be reexamined every
year, or sooner if there is a
noticeable decline in their
vision.

fied optometric physician practic-
ing in Sebring and is Arizona
and Florida certified in diagnos-
tics and therapeutics. She is a

Optometric Association, Arizona

The Scope of Oriental Medicine
Oriental medicine includes acupuncture, Chinese herbology, dietary
therapy, exercise and bodywork based on traditional Oriental medicine
principles.
This system of health care is used extensively by one-quarter of the
world's population residing in Asia, and is rapidly growing in popularity
in the West.
Oriental medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the bio-
chemical model of Western medicine.
Acupuncture
.. , Acupuncture is the 5000 year old Chinese system of natural
S* .. healing. Fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points of
., the body to restore a balanced flow of energy.
' Through acupuncture, Qi (energy) is allowed to move
o freely throughout the body, reestablishing balance. This bal-
" ,j,. ., ance helps the body achieve higher levels of health and
well-being
''" y Chinese Herbs
S For as long as people and plants have coexisted, herbal med-
. . icine has been around in some shape or form It has been
found to very helpful in treating conditions such as jaergies,
ADD and ADHD, menopausal syndrome, chronic pliA and
many, many other ailments
