Young scholars

take stock of

their future

Take Stock in
Children honors
newest students
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON P ARK - "We're really
proud of you guys," said Wally Cox,
superintendent of schools for
Highlands County.
He was speaking at the Jacaranda
Hotel Thursday night to 12 young stu-
dents, all in seventh grade, who repre-
sented every public middle school in
the district. The gathering was part
celebration, part motivational rally.
Each child had just signed a con-
tract with the organization Take Stock
in Children.
In exchange for maintaining at
least a C average, going to school
every day and staying out of trouble,
the students will be rewarded with a
four-year college scholarship upon
graduation from high school.
For his part, Cox, who also signs
the contract, said, "I pledge to you
that if there is anything you need, you
only have to ask."
Most people agree that growing up
is a challenge in itself. To prepare for
college at the same time requires ded-
ication, hard work and help.
For the next six years, these young
students will have a team supporting
their efforts in school. Each is

selection was very competitive.

Stat *ide

jobles s-

rises, while


county's
dips slightly
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Those in
the unemployment line
continue to get company
across the state as the job-
less rate continues to cliinb.
According to a news
release from the Bureau of
Labor Statistics, 29 states
and the District of
Columbia reported increas-
es in their unemployment
rates, and 13 states now
have rates higher than the
national average of 10.2.
Florida is one of them at
11.2 percent.
This represents
1,027,000 jobless out of a
labor force of 9,175,000.
The unemployment rate is
nearly unchanged from the
revised September rate of
11.1 percent, but is up 4,3
percentage points from the
October 2008 rate.
The state's current unem-
ployment rate is 1.0 percent
higher than the national
unemployment rate of 10,2
percent. October's rate was
the highest since June 1975
when it was also 11.2 per-
cent.
The last time it was high-
er was May 1975 when it
was 11.9 percent.
Highlands County took a
slight dip to 11.4 percent
still above the statewide
average by .2 percent, but a
slightly smaller number
'from September when it
was 11.6 percent.
The rate for Highlands
County was 8.3 percent in
October of 2008, and 5.8
percent in 2007.
Industries losing the
most jobs are trade, trans-
portation and utilities, pro-
fessional and business serv-
ices and construction.
These three industries
account for more than two-
thirds of the job losses in
the state.
Health care has been
Florida's only growth sec-
tor for most of 2009.


Buttonwood preacher's life spent laughing with the Lord

Retirement not a thoughtfor Flota [


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - Born in 1920,. and a
World War II army veteran, Howard
Flota began preaching in 1951 and
was ordained in 1954.
A Free Will Baptist, his early days
were spent filling in for other minis-
ters at churches around his Mt.
Vernon, Ill. home, or speaking at
churches too small or poor to have
their own pastors.
"We did whatever we could to make
a living," Flota said Wednesday, sit-
ting in the comfortable, quiet living
room of his retirement home in
Buttonwood Bay, his wife Bea, nod-
ding agreement as he spoke.
"Churches then paid $25 for a
Sunday service, if you were lucky.
Some congregations paid in fresh pro-
duce. We'd drive home with bags of ,
corn, beans or tomatoes in the car," he,


said.
Flota worked secular jobs in the
beginning, as an account executive
with one company, and as a floor
supervisor for General Tire.
In time, however, he became a full-
time pastor with his own church. In
fact, before retiring, he had served
three congregations.
His retirement is the heart of this
story.
The Flotas have two children,
twins, Ida Sue Flota Robinson, who
lives in Jacksonville, and Robert
Flota, who lives in Lake Wales.
In the spring of 1991, still living in
Illinois and ready to retire, the Flotas
surveyed their options.
Their son had moved to Miami so
they drove down to check out South.
Florida.

Bea and Howard Flota retired to Buttonwood Bay in 1991. Within a
year Flota was called back to work when the community asked him to
pastor the Church of Buttonwood Bay. Now, Flota says, "The good Lord
may come for me before I retire again."

Special to the News-Sun
Thanksgiving is around
the corner and college
freshmen across the country
are heading home, many for
the first time since August.
Parents can look forward to
spending quality time with
their sons or daughters dur-
ing the weekend, but they
should be prepared to dis-
cover that the parent-child
relationship is little diff-
ent than it was aeew mo *
ago.
Experts say that despite
all the e-mailing, texting,
and chatting over the phone
of the past few months, the
reality of seeing their chilL
dren is quite different. Upon
this first return home, par-
ents should expect and
respect the changes that
may have occurred in their
children, says Dawn Bruner,


Bicycle and motorcycle crash


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - In an acci-
dent still under investigation
by the Florida Highway
Patrol at press time, a female
rider was knocked off her
bicycle by a motorcyclist at
the intersection of U. S. 27
and State Road 66 just before
noon on Saturday.
The woman sustained
unknown injuries and was
transported to a local hospi-
tal.
The motorcyclist was
shaken but not hurt.
Ken and Janet Kelley and
Sal and Randa DiMaria, driv-
ing separately in two vehi-
cles, all witnessed the acci-
dent and stayed to talk to
police.
They reported the bicyclist
was traveling south on U.S.
27 and ran the red light for
which they had stopped.
The motorcyclist, also a
woman, was traveling west to
S.R. 66, the witnesses said,
and had been stopped on the
U. S. 98 side of the intersec-
tion waiting for the light to
change.
With the light changed, the

A sheriff's deputy marks the spot where a female rider was
thrown off her bicycle at the intersection of U.S. 27 and
State Road 66 Saturday morning. Witnesses at the scene
say the bicyclist ran a red light heading south, and was
struck by a motorcyclist heading west. The bicyclist was
transported to an area hospital. The motorcyclist was shak-
en but not injured. The investigation remained under way at
press time. No names had been released.


motorcyclist, who was fol-
lowing another rider, began
to cross U.S. 27, but the bicy-
clist rode directly in front of
the motorcycles.
The first rider was able to
swerve out of the way, but


the second did not have the
time, hitting the bicycle. The
rider was thrown to the
ground, and the motorcycle
went down. Its rider's helmet
and the machine were dam-
aged.

director of parent relations
at the University of
Rochester.
Parents should be aware
of their son or daughter's
sense of independence and
try to be flexible. Bruner
encourages parents to rene-
gotiate expectations so
everyone is comfortable and
informed about the rules of
the household, which may
be different from those on
ca)apus.
Parents should also shy
away from cramming the
weekend full of activities
and consult with their chil-
dren before making plans.


Bruner says that this visit
is also a good time to assess
how children are adjusting
to college life. Work to
explore and understand any
of the problems that may
have risen while at school.
Bruner advises that over
the course of the long week-
end, parents should concen-
trate on sharing small
moments with their sons or
daughters. Listen to their
ideas, thoughts, and con-
cerns and get a feel for the
changes that may have
occurred. And, if there's
time, maybe do a few loads
of their laundry.

Just keep it brief, clean

I am surprised to learn
the Acorn group is suing
the government. I was
under the impression that
no one could sue the gov-
ernment. They sure have
plenty of nerve as corrupt
as they are.
Do we want them to have
more funds so they can
sign up more multiple voter
cards in 2010 and 2012?
These will be very impor-
tant elections and to get rid
of these politicians who do
nothing for us Americans.
I hope that Congress
laughs at that Acorn group.
They already cut off their
funds.

Look out folks. It's begin-
ning. With no notification,
Mr. Obama has decreed no
more Medicare-paid trans-
portation by community
transport to the doctor or
medical office as of Sept.
1.
What is a Medicaid
patient to do when they
can't drive to get to their
doctor's office as in the
past?

I'd like to know who is
the government task force.
I have never heard of them.
How can they tell women
when to have their mam-
mograms?
I think it is another
socialist Obama idea.
Beware.
I had a lumpectomy in
2003 and 33 radiation
treatments. If I had not
gone each year for my
mammogram, it's no telling
how large the tumor would
have grown.
I say to all women, listen
to the American Cancer
Society not Obama and his
communist czar bunch or
we are all doomed.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Counting our blessings


The holidays
are upon us,
a time of joy
and stress; reflec-
tion and parties.
Many of us, will be travel-
ing to visit family, hosting
reunions, volunteering time
on food and toy drives, or
making New Year's resolu-
tions.
In the bustle of shopping,
cooking and cleaning it will
be easy to become over-
whelmed - especially dur-
ing these trying times when
so many of us are doing with
less and worrying more. It's
easy to lose sight of all the
things that are going well, or
the things for which we
should be grateful.
This is why we've decided
to run one editorial a week


through the new year high-
lighting the blessings of liv-
ing in Highlands County.
There is no better place to
start than with our natural
bounty - the wide expanse.
of land under sky, the ripples
of the ridge, the lakes and
streams sparkling in the sun.
From the heat and prickle
of the palmetto scrubs to the
cool pines, the knobby
kneed cypress, the stands of
oak and cat tails in the lakes,
this county is a palette of
greens, burnt browns and
pale yellows, all set off by
the brilliant blue overhead.
From egrets, ibis, herons
of all sizes and color, sand
hill cranes, hawks, black
birds, cardinals, blue jays,
eagles, mockingbirds, buz-
zards and song birds; to
lizards, turtles,. butterflies,
dragon flies, wide mouth


It's almost over (not)
Editor:
Mr. Alviano, you have made Mr. Doty's letter
look like it's the more sensible of the two when
compared. In fact, your letter is hilarious to most
reasonable Americans.
First, the Conservative Republicans only want
our government to follow the Constitution,
which the liberal Democrats want-to ignore or
rewrite to their wishes. Social Security, Medicare
and unemployment payments are programs that
we have taken out of our paychecks. They are
not giveaways. Yes, Food Stamps and Medicaid
are programs that our government has set up as
safety nets for the poor and most Americans sup-
port this if it is not abused, which in many cases
it is.
Now, for the bailouts, and the takeover of the
auto industry, this is government at its worse. If
I ran a business and ran it inefficiently, would
the government bail me or anyone else out? No,
because that is the way the free market works.
True capitalism is to let the unhealthy and ineffi-'
cient to fail and has been the way our free mar-
ket has worked for years. We already have mas-
sive unemployment even with the bailouts, so it
did not work.
Now, if you think premiums will go down
under a government-run health care, I have a
bridge I want to sell you. Nothing that the gov-
ernment has ever done has worked the way they
said it would work, just the opposite. You decid-
ed to use the same old talking points of the envi-
ronmentalist when it comes to global warming,
you are ignoring 90 percent of the scientists that
have said this whole thing is a myth.
For all you.who love Socialism and the global
warming money-making scheme, I suggest you
move to another country that already has those
issues as sospel. There are flights everyday of,
the year and we wish you the best. But quit try-
ing to change our Constitution to benefit your
own wishes. There are 50-plus of the population
who do not agree with you and your radical col-
leagues who want everything your way.
I would like to thank the newspapers for pub-
lishing my letter, because I think it is about time
that the media stops being partisan and show
both sides of all issues. Show what the other 50-
plus percent of Americans believe.
Stephen Lord
Sebring

A look at government-run
health care
Editor:
I have some reservations about the current
health care bill the congress is pushing so fast to
get passed. Why is it so necessary when we
already have the best health care in the world?
From the U.S. Census there are 307 million peo-
ple in the United States and 84.6 percent are
covered by some kind of health care plan; 15.6
percent not covered.
What makes this so important when such a
small percentage is not covered? Many are
younger people who choose not to have insur-
ance. Many are illegal aliens. Should we force
those who choose not to have insurance to get it?
Should we the taxpayers pay for illegal aliens to
have it?

government run health care looks like. The two
government hospitals I worked in were filthy.
There was dirt and trash all over the place. The
restrooms were really bad. The x-ray rooms I
worked in, dirt was everywhere and old equip-
ment was piled up in the room.
The machines I had to work on had been down
for months. They were just doing without the
only mammography machine they had. Although
I was able to determine what was wrong with the
machines I was not able to repair them because
they didn't have the money to pay for the parts
needed to fix them.
There were hundreds of people sitting and
standing around waiting for their number to be
called. I asked the local guy, I was working with,.

'Fiddler' was an awesome show
Editor:
Any of you reading this that missed
Highlands Little Theatre's production of "Fiddler
on the Roof" sure missed a super show.
The cast was wonderful from the bit actor to
the stars. If the Broadway scouts had ever see
Pete Pollard in action, I don't think Pete would
be living in Sebring, but in New York, New
York. He has been beyond words in any part I
have ever seen him portray.
You can flat tell the whole cast put their whole
effort in every rehearsal that was held. Plus did
more work with family and friends; they were all
outstanding.
The set could not have been any better if I
had been a Broadway production. Then I got a
real treat. Co-director Frank Oberhausen heard
me raving how great the play was and the set
being so super he asked if I would like to see


back stage?" Who could turn an offer like that
down? I'm still walking on cloud nine over that
one. They came up with ideas that would have
never entered my head of ways to make brick
and other things look so real. '
As usual the staff from The Depot Restaurant
put on an outstanding meal. They sure do a
superb job of getting the prime rib out quick and
just the way you ordered it. I am sure some
would not agree with that statement, but I'd like
to see them do as good.
Then there is that chocolate cake. There is no
way to do it justice in mere words.
The wait staff is young people trying to raise
money, via tips for their church activities. I sure
hope they do well as they put their heart into
their work. You ask for something and they have
it there with a smile.
Highlands Little Theatre you did one more
show way above and beyond. Thanks.

Rats!

So this morning I was check-
ing my e-mail, putting off
doing anything remotely pro-
ductive, when I found an e-mail
from my friend Tina.
I've mentioned Tina in other
columns. She is a good friend
who lets me toss her name
around in my columns without
complaint. In fact, my biggest'
gripe with her is that her family
insists on living in Georgia,
instead of moving to Sebring so
we could actually see each
other more often.
The title of her e-mail was
"Rats!" Here is what she said:
"No, I am not quoting from
Peanuts this morning. I went
outside to give something to
Matthew's bus driver this
morning and when I came back,
I found a dead rat on our front
porch, lying right in the middle
of our Welcome mat. Dead rai�,
don't usually drop dead right
on your front doorstep. I actual-
ly Googled 'dead rat on
doorstep' and found two possi-
bilities: 1. We have been gifted
by a cat, or 2. someone hates
us. Do I need to be worried?"
Of course, as a good friend, I
pondered this e-mail. Several
thoughts came to mind:
* Even though-her husband
works for the IRS, I doubt any-
one hates him enough to put a
dead rat on their doorstep.
* Have there been any sus-
picious cats in the neighbor-
hood?
* How did Tina get the rat
off the doorstep? Did she actu-
ally touch the dead rat?
* Hey, there might be a col-
umn in this story!
I realized if I was going to
get any answers to these and
other important questions I was
going to have to bite the bullet
and call Tina, meaning I would
be spending a large amount of
time talking and laughing with
a good friend. It was a sacrifice
I was willing to make for the
column.
I wound up speaking to
Tina's husband, Frank for a bit.
He was home with a cold, so he
was willing to help me out with
my questions since Tina wasn't
home.
Frank reported that yes, there
were suspicious cats roaming
the area. While he is not a
police officer, Frank does
watch a lot of CSI, so he was
able to determine that the rat
,was not a victim of blunt force
trauma. This pointed away from
a human culprit and has landed
suspicion right back on the
stray cats.
When I asked about the rat
disposal, Frank told me that
Tina had used Wife Method No.
1 to get rid of the vermin: She
had him do it. Getting husband
to deal with unpleasant chores
such as this has long been the
primary method used by wives.
Frank got a shovel and
removed the rat from the
doorstep, no dotibt to Tina's
gratitude and relief.
I finally tracked down Tina
and after a few sessions of My
Cell Phone Doesn't Like Your
Cell Phone managed to have a
fun-filled conversation. She
confirmed all that Frank told
me and added the'fact that he
thought it was a mouse as
opposed to a rat.
Well, I didn't see the thing,
but let me tell you this. If it's
dead on my doorstep I don't
care what you call it, as long as
you get it away from my house
for me. If you need to classify
it maybe one of the Squints
from the television show
"Bones" can take a break and
check it out for you. Don't ask
me to.
And if any of the cats in

items will help many people have a much happier Thanksgiving celebration.



Buttonwood Bay church celebrating 25 years


Continued from page 1A
Driving through
Highlands County they
noticed Buttonwood Bay in
passing, and recognized the
name when they saw a large
ad for it in the Miami paper.
Having seen nothing to
their liking down south, on
their way home they stopped
at the retirement park, and
quickly bought a house,
moving in on June 10 of that
year.
Not quite a year later, in
May of 1992, Flota was
approached to take over pas-
toral duties for the Church
of Buttonwood Bay, a con-
gregation of local residents
who gather Sundays for a
non-denominational service.
Before he could say amen,
Flota was back at work,
doing what he loves most -
bringing people to Christ.
Started in 1984, with 72
worshippers and only winter
services, the Church of
Buttonwood Bay now draws
350 to 400 parishioners dur-
ing the season, and holds
services year round.
The congregation meets in
the recreation hall, conve-
niently next door to the
swimming pool, which is
used as the baptismal for
either sprinkled or full
immersion baptisms.
"We don't get off on doc-
,trine," Flota said. "I just
preach what Jesus said."
Flota often uses gentle
humor to make points. "I
quote Proverbs 17:22 all the
time," he said. "'A merry
heart doth good, like a medi-
cine.'"
For example, he planned
on using the following story
during today's service.
This young preacher had a
zeal for soul saving. Going
through the country. one day
he saw a farmer resting
under a tree.
The preacher joined him.
Concerned about the
farmer's soul he said, "Are
you laboring in the vineyard,
of the Lord, my good man?"
The farmer relied, "Naw,
these are soybeans."
"You don't understand,"
said the preacher, "are you a
Christian?"
"No," said the farmer.
"I'm a Jones, you must be
looking for Henry Christian.
He lives south of here."
The determined young
preacher tried again. "Are
you lost?" he asked.
"Naw," said the farmer,
"I've lived here all my life."
The young preacher
wouldn't give up. "Are you
ready for Judgment Day?"
he asked.
That caught the farmer's
attention. "When is it going
to be?"
Thinking he had accom-
plished something, the
preacher said, "It could be
today, tomorrow, or the next
day."

-Advertise. Today!




NEWS-SUN


"Well," said the farmer,
taking out a handkerchief
and wiping his brow, "don't
mention it to my wife. She
don't get out much and
she'll want to go all three
days."
When he was young, Flota
said, "if you told a funny
story like that people would
think you hadn't found God.
They were pretty rigid in
those days."
Flota said humor is impor-
tant, especially when
preaching to senior citizens.
"You gear your preaching
a little different when there
are no young families or
children in the congrega-
tion," he said. "I use mes-
sages of encouragement to
help people against loneli-
ness and sickness or serious
operations."
Today marks the 25th
anniversary of the church. It
is also Flota's 17th and half
year anniversary as its pas-
tor.
"We've been blessed and
blessed and blessed," Flota
said. "I married my high
school sweetheart, she was


the best thing that ever hap-
pened to me."
Bea Flota's father raised
chickens, among several
pursuits. Just after announc-
ing their engagement to her
parents, Flota found him out
behind the chicken house in
tears.
"I could see his worry,"
Flota said ruefully. "At the
time I weighed about 110
pounds and didn't have a
job. "'You're taking my
daughter,'" Flota said his
soon-to-be father-in-law told
him. "But," added Flota, "he
turned out to be one of the
best men I've ever met." He
turned to his wife, "We were
best buddies by the end,
weren't we?" he asked as
she nodded her head.
In addition to their two
children, the Flotas have 15
grandchildren and four
great-grandchildren. The
couple recently celebrated
their 70th anniversary at the
same get-together their
daughter and son-in-law cel-
ebrated their 50th anniver-
sary.
"It makes you feel a little


ancient," said Bea Flota
with a twinkling smile.
Ancient or not - Howard
Flota turns 90 his next birth-
day and Bea is days away
from 89 - neither has any
thought of a second retire-
ment.
"I find it easier now to
get a sermon together then
ever before in my life,"
Flota said. "It's the advan-
tage of growing older, I've
mellowed and gained some
wisdom."

Lady Streaks bounce

back with big win


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING - There's noth-
ing quite like a blowout win
to help overcome a loss of the
same type, as the Lady Blue
Streaks found out Thursday
night with a 51-17 win over
visiting Hardee.
"I'm pleased with our
effort," head coach Mike Lee
said afterward. "This is a
nice win to get, but we're
still starting out flat arid I
don't quite understand. The
energy. is. there, but we start
out'sloppy."
.Sloppy it may have
been, but the job was Set
getting done against
the overmatched Lady
Wildcats.
"That's the thing
with Hardee, they'll
scrap and play you 1
tough," Lee said.
"We've had close games with
them the last few years, and I
reminded the girls of that."
They obviously took it to
heart, building up an early
lead of 10-2.
But whether it was. the
sloppiness, flatness or the
scratch of the 'Cats, Hardee
closed the gap to just 12-6
after one.
The competition, though,
took a more lopsided turn in
the second as the Sebring
defense pitched a shutout and
the offense scored 10 for a
22-6 halftime lead.
Two three pointers from
Hardee early in the third


quarter broke their scoreless
drought, but would be all
they'd manage in the period.
Streak center Shannon
Williams, meanwhile,
outscored the Wildcats her-
self, totaling eight in the
third, and helped the defense.
with two blocked shots.
Jerica Moore added a lay-
up, Madison Rose a jumper
and Tangie McCullors scored
twice on the break to make it
38-12 heading into the final
eight minutes.
"We came out a lot better
in the second half," Lee said.
"We were more
bring aggressive and
)1 attacked a little
more."
ardee Williams and
McCullors both had
il busy nights filling up
If the stat sheets, with
Williams scoring 17,

Streaks nab win with

rout of Panthers


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK - With a
win to'close out their pre-
season, a 60-40 mauling of
Mulberry, the Blue Streak
boys basketball team would
seem primed to start the
regular season.
But head coach Princeton
Harris was more cautious in
his assessment afterward.
"We're getting Set
better," he said.
"Our timing is get-
ting better, our pass- 6
ing is better. But we Mul
need to fine tune
some things." 4
Such as the slow 4
starts Sebring has
gotten off to in the early
going, as they followed up
Tuesday's 13-point first
quarter with 11 in the open-
ing eight minutes Thursday
night.
Then again, the defense
got off to a stronger start
this time around, limiting
the Panthers to just six
first-quarter points for an.
early lead.
The lead wasn't b:l1t on
in the second frame, how-
ever, as Mulberry scratched
for six of the first seven

points to even things up at
12-12 before Sebring began
to pick it up.
Jewel Campbelltook a
slick pass in the post from
Marcus Dewberry for a
two-hand rim rattler before
Tobey Solebello scored on
a follow and Devin Clarke
drove for two and knocked
down a free throw for a 19-
14 lead at the half.
ing "We got up just a
few at halftime,"
0 Harris said. "We
really wanted to pick
erry it up, open it up, in
the second half, and
we did."
Campbell got i't
started 'with an
inside score to open the
third, then, after a Panther
score, showed his passing
skills with a feed from the
high post for a Clarke lay-
in:
Joe Young then scored on
the break and Dewberry
canned a three to balloon
the lead to 28-17.
Over the next four min-
utes, Mulberry answered
back but could only shave a
point off the lead before

SEBRING - Prior to
Friday's big matchup with
one of 'the District 5-5A
front-runners, Winter Haven,
Sebring head coach Tim
Boulay mentioned how
topsy-turvy the district

schedule had been thus far.
"Ridge really beat up on
Winter Haven (8-1), but tied
Osceola, who we beat," he
said. "And they lost to
Haines City, who Osceola
beat."
The Blue Streaks them-
selves took one on the chin
Tuesday against Ridge, by a
3-0 score, but rebounded

Avon Park homess back, falls in OT

Avierre Connor turns the corner to get around this Clewiston defender Thursday as Avon
Park's comeback came up just a bit short in the finale of the Bill Jarrett Tip-Off
Tournament.


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK - Even
though the Red Devils fought
back from a 20-point deficit,
they still dropped a pre-sea-
son game 69-66 to Clewiston
in overtime during the Bill
Jarrett Tip-Off Tournament
Thursday night,
"I thought it was a Clev
heck of a game for the
pre-season, the fans 6
sure got their money's
,worth," said Avon Av
.Park Assistant Coach
Alvin Conner ]
"We had the oppor-
tunity to win it in the regula-
tion play, but we just couldn't
execute. That will come with
experience and game play,"
Conner said.
The Devils came out
strong, using their height t
score the first four points of
the game, but Clewiston got
their offense rolling and
started hitting heavy from the
outside, hitting 10 three-


pointers before it was over.
At the half, the Devils
were down 30-17, and in the
first few minutes of the third
period Clewiston extended
their lead to 42-22 before
Avon Park made the connec-
tion with Alonzo Robertson.
"We fought back and gave
ourselves the chance

to win. Really, when a
team gets down 20,
they usually fold tent,
but we fought back
and had the opportuni-
ty to win," Conner
said.


Robertson would
start hitting from the inside,
and picked up 17 points in
the second half alone.
For the night, Robertson
would net 26 points all told
for Avon Park, helping to tie
the score at 52-52 with just
2:42 left in regulation play.
But as the pressure mount-
ed, the Devils seemed to
hurry shots and create
turnovers that the Clewiston


'The fans sure

got their money's
worth.'

Red Devil assistant coach

hitters needed to keep the
press on and regulation play
ended at 59-59.
"We started taking ill
advised shots, and did not go
back to Alonzo," Conner
explained.
Overtime was a see-saw of
presses and outside shooting
as each team battled for that
capping lead.
Robertson's targeting
pushed the Devils out front
several times, but with 30
seconds left, Clewiston's
Ra'Vin Lee hit the three-
pointer that spelled doom for
the Devils.

Lady Devils feel Wildcat scratch


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK - McKeel
Academy's quickness and-
outside shooting contributed
to the 65-39 loss handed to
Avon Park on their own court
on Friday night.
"They out hustled us.
Turnovers were a big thing,"
said Paulette Daley, Avon
Park's head girls basketball
coach. "We have to go back
to the drawing board, this is a
lesson learned."
Avon Park seemed to hold
their own during the first
period, keeping pace with the
girls from McKeel and jump-
ing out front early with a 6-0
lead.
But they soon went cold
and the Wildcats heated up to
end the period with a 9-8
lead.
An adjustment to a man-to-
man defense by McKeel,
come the first part of the sec-
ond period, seemed to catch
the Devils flat-footed.
A series of turnovers left
the score 29-20 McKeel at
the half.
"Move your feet, we have
to play through it," Daley
said. "We acted like man-to-
man was new to us ott
there."
The third period was where
McKeel really put the press
to the Lady Devils, and the
Wildcat endurance outlasted
Avon Park, ending the third
quarter with McKeel way out
front 50-31.
"It looked like we were a
little tired out there, but I
think it was a mind thing,"
Daley noted. "We got down,
and when that happens, espe-
cially against'a good team, it
gets away from you."
But, according to Daley,

"Favinnette Cotte was one of Avon Park hopes to learn


from the lessons Monday,

Blue Streaks overcome slow start

with a strong finish


Continued from 1C
three straight Streak scores to
close the quarter made it a
38-24 margin.
The Panthers showed some
bite, though, scoring the first
five of the fourth, and nine of
the first 12, but Solebello
drained one from downtown
and Campbell jammed one
home on a put-back to bring
the Blue Streak crowd to its
feet.
Lee Amos scored on a
drive for Mulberry, but the
Streaks were off to the races
now, with Young scoring on a
follow, Solebello driving and
Clark hitting a three, with
just two Panther free throws
coming back as an answer.
Amos then hit one-of-two
at the line, but Dewberry
went back-to-back from
beyond the arc and the win
was all but sealed.
Dewberry and Clarke lead
the team with 12 points
apiece, while Young added
10 and Solebello nine in
Sebring's balanced attack.
So the Streaks finishing off
an opponent took a leap for-
ward after Clewiston came
back on them two nights ear-
lier.
A trend they'll need to
continue as the season sched-
ule starts off with a tough test
against new district opponent
Winter Haven Monday in the
Sebring Gym.

Haven Thursday night to get
right into the thick of the
race.
"The other teams will take
notice of this," Boulay said
after the win over the Blue
Devils. "This was a big win
for us, district-wise."
And it didn't take long for
Sebring to establish control,
keeping the ball on the
Winter Haven side much of
the night and with Buck
Schroeder streaking past the
defense barely six minutes
into the match for a one-on-
one opportunity.
A sliding trip from behind
thwarted the in-the-moment
chance, but set up a penalty
kick which Schroeder easily
zipped past the goalkeeper
for a 1-0 lead.
That would be it for the
first half, and for most of the
second half as well, though
the Streaks stayed on the
attack.
"We had some opportuni-
ties," Boulay said. "But a few
of those went off the post and
crossbar."


'For most of the
game we were the
team we can be.'
TIM BOULAY
Sebring head coach
One such opportunity
came early in the second half
after a rare Winter Haven
shot attempt.
A virtual scrum in front of
Sebring goalkeeper Jesse
Ouverson was broken up and
the ball cleared, leading
Schroeder on a field-length
sprint toward the other end.
Breaking into the clear,
Schroeder let fly from 15-
yards out, only to have it
graze over the top of the
crossbar.
But at the 74:15 mark, one
such opportunity would be
converted as Elisha Klatt
one-touched the ball and
crossed it to David Scheck in
front of the goal.
Scheck then ripped it into
the twine for the insurance
goal of a 2-0 lead.


The Blue Streaks, howev-
er, seemed to relax a bit and
for the first time all night, it
was Winter Haven sustaining
control in the Sebring zone.
And while a late goal from
the Devils seemed too little,
too late, as the clock was
already under two minutes,
when the ball went right back
into Streak territory, there
was some cause for concern.
No true, clean shot on goal
came in the waning moments,
but the late-game letdown
caused a bit of concern for
their coach.
"For most of the game, we
were the team we can be,"
Boulay said. "But we let
down there at the end and it
could have cost us. That's not
something we can afford to
do in this district."
Sebring will have time to
reflect on that, as well as the
big win, as the team is off for
the Thanksgiving break
before hosting Liberty
Monday, Nov. 30, to continue
the district schedule.

Local high school students take part in helping the environment


Last year Sebring High School
students got a chance to learn
about ponds and wetlands in their
environment through a Splash!
Grant that was obt #d by Jill
Scott, ninth- and. i-grade inte-
grated science ter. The
$3,813.00 grant-ws used to put in
a pond located nar the agriculture
barn at the school. This
wetland/pond water system will
provide students with educational
opportunities related to nutrient
cycling in aquatic ecosystems,
native aquatic plant and animal
habitat, and wetland water treat-
ment systems for aquaculture.
Last year, before the pond was
installed, the staff from Highlands
Soil and Water Conservation
District worked with students to
teach them what steps are involved
in putting in a pond. Some of the
hands-on training included students
using a laser level to measure the
fall of the land, how to take meas-
urements, read a range pole, record
the data and calculate the informa-
tion. This taught them that a pond
is more than just a hole in the
ground and that it takes quite a lot
of work to put one in.
Now that the pond is in place,
students are learning about water
quality and what types of plants
and filtration are needed for this
new addition. On Oct. 30, Erin
McCarta, Lakes Management assis-
tant and Corine Burgess, Natural
Resource specialist, instructed two


News From
The
Watershed
Corine Burgess


integrated sci-
ence classes on
water quality.
Included in the
day's education
were testing the
water with
meters that detect
dissolved oxy-
gen, Ph, tempera-
ture and other
information
needed to study
the quality of the'
water. Students


participated in the testing of the
water as well as the recording of
the data.
Future visits to the school will
include teaching the students about
what types of plants are needed to
filter the water and attract aquatic
animals to the site. One of the seed
types that the students disbursed
during the October visit was the
American Lotus. The flowers of
this plant are large (to 10 inches
across) yellowish-white to yellow
with more than 20 petals. The cen-
ter of the flower, the seed struc-
ture, is cone-shaped (or like an
inverted shower-head) and has
openings in which the seeds devel-
op. Lotus can form large colonies
and spreads by seeds and large
fleshy rhizomes. -
Submerged portions of all aquat-
ic plants provide habitats for many
micro and macro invertebrates.
These invertebrates in turn are


used as food by fish and other
wildlife species. After aquatic
plants die, their decomposition by
bacteria and fungi provides food
(called "detritus") for many aquatic
invertebrates. The large acorn like
seeds of lotus are utilized by some
ducks and other wildlife. This is
the first of many types of plants
that will be planted near the pond.
Hallie Webb, lead agricultural
teacher, provided the plot of land
where the pond is located. Because
of his agreement to share his agri-
culture land area, along with the
help and assistance of countless
school board members and teachers
the pond is now a reality. Hallie
also played a major role in the
physical aspects of the pond instal-
lation.
Evidence indicates that
American students' interest in sci-
ence education and scientific
careers has declined over the past
several decades. With this decline
in the interest in science comes the
lack of qualified and trained people
to fill scientific jobs. Recent statis-
tics show a decline of graduating
scientists and engineers from our
universities. This appears to be a
threat to tech businesses and our
country as a world leader. The shift
seems to begin as early as middle
school.
Hopefully, with the help of
grants like this one and people who
put forth the effort t6 educate our
children in scientific subjects, this'

School teacher and students - from left Erin McCarta, Jill Scott, Treach

problem will not be a lasting one.
Making science fun, exciting and
hands-on may be a way to inspire
students to persue higher education
and careers in science based sub-
jects.
The Highlands Soil and Water
Conservation District and Sebring
High School staff hope that proj-
ects such as the pond will allow
students the opportunity to learn
first-hand about wetlands and other
environmental areas. This venture
brings teachers, students, and gov-
ernmental agencies together work-


ing toward a common goal.
Teaching our future generations
about our fragile and precious
environment is vital. It is important
that they understand what needs to
be done to keep our earth healthy.
Today's children must have a pas-
sion for this planet and take owner-
ship in its wellbeing for future gen-
erations.

Resources Specialist with the
Highlands County Soil and Water.

You need all the help you can get, Virgo, but


there isn't going to be much on the way


Aries (March 21-April 20) - Keep
your lips closed, Aries, even if you need
to duct tape them shut: Anything you
say this week will be taken the wrong
hay and you don't need any enemies at
this time.
' Taurus (April 21-May 21) - There's
rore than meets the eye to a situation
that arises on Tuesday, Taurus. You will
lave to read between the lines if you
want to gauge the outcome.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) - Gemini,
ith your financial situations in order, it
ay seem like the right time to do a lit-
te extra spending. However, the best
t ing you can do right now is to keep
your wallet shut.
, Cancer (June 22-July 22) - Cancer,
you're antsy this week and your rest-
lessness is causing you to take shortcuts
when you shouldn't. Focus your atten-
tion on what you need to get done.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) - Risky
endeavors are not the way to go, Leo.
You should steer toward safe bets
instead. It's important to have stability


HOROSCOPE


in your life at this junction in time.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) - You need
all the help you can get, Virgo, but
unfortunately there aren't too many
offers for helping hands this week. It's
time to call in some favors, pronto.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - The best
laid plans often go awry, Libra, which
you'll find is the case with travel you
had scheduled. With a little patience
everything will work out in the end.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - There's
a lot going on in your life at this time,
Scorpio, but being the great organizer
and go-getter that you are you'll find a
way to make it all work out.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
- What you could use is some sage rela-
tionship advice, Sagittarius, but there's
no one willing to offer it. Use your com-


mon sense to figure out how to make the
most of your love life.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) - This
week you are propelled through your
daily tasks and have lots of extra time
for recreational activities, Capricorn.
How will you put the time to good use?
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) -
There's not much you can say to calm an
escalated situation this week, Aquarius,
but your actions will speak quite loudly.
Others turn to you for support.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -
Remarkable things happen this week
without much effort on your part,
Pisces. Have fun sorting it all out.

St. Pete's not ready for this cowboy


, When Florida was still considered
"wild," it was the ranchers and
,Seminole Indians that learned to tame
.the wilderness to settle on vast prairies
where they could carve a living out of
.the rugged environment. In Central
SFlorida, along the Lake Wales Ridge of
White sugar sand sloping into the scrub,
Life was difficult. Cattle had to adapt to
the land and the conditions. Ranchers-
worked the land and tended to their cat-
,tle herds while they raised their family
land their food. It was not an easy life,
bhut just like the scrub cattle left by the
Spaniards in the 1500s, the new settlers
Learned by trial and error how to grow
,their families and their ranches.
John Platt of Zolpho Springs thinks
back to those days when he slept, ate,
and survived, the harsh elements of
,Florida's unpredictable weather on the
-back of a horse in the middle of the
.wilderness. "We had to drive thousands
of cattle to the markets on the coast. A
,cattle drive is like no other experience;
-there is no past, only what's ahead of
'you on the trail. You are by yourself.
You throw out your bed roll and sleep
on the hard or wet ground. The water
was so clear then that we could drink
out of a ditch or alligator hole. We did-
rf't take a bath for three days but we
did keep the skeeterss' away. On the
-tiail, you have to do, what you have to
-do to survive no matter what happens.
"Once I got bit on the arm by a pigmy
rattler so I started rolling around in the
grass and squeezed out the venom.

John and Ben Platt share a story of life
in 'Wild Florida'.

These are not by-gone days, I remem-
ber them like yesterday. Those were not
'hard times.'"
As a young cowboy, John Platt once
thought about becoming a bull rider but
says he "quit when the gate opened. I
was a steer wrestler and calf roper from
16 to'25 years old." But, John Platt
didn't have to ride rodeo bulls to expe-
rience their wrath.
"About three years ago when I was
loading four bulls into a trailer, I had
one of the worst experiences I have
ever had. I got three bulls out of the
pen at one time and was loading them
into the cow trailer. I walked about half
way out of the pen and was trying to

starts familiarly, with the
stories of Cinderella, Jack
and the Beanstalk, Little
Red Riding Hood, and
Rapunzal. They are all tied
together with a new story
of the Baker and his Wife,
who'are trying to conceive
a child. However, the play
soon discloses many twists
and changes of fate for
each of the' characters as
they experience the reper-
cussions of their "happily
ever after"s.

close the gate when the last bull came
out and cornered me. I had 2,000
pounds trampling over me. My pelvis
was crushed and my hips were frac-
tured; I was bruised all over. Luckily,
these bulls were poledd' [horns
removed] and I survived.
"After surgery, I had a very strange
dream. It went something like this: I
rode my horse to the Pearly Gates and
St. Peter said, 'You can't come in, you
don't have but one boot on.' So I rode
my horse, Sugar, down from the Pearly
Gates, got my boot and rode back to
the Gate. Again, St. Peter said, 'You
can't come in because you don't have
your hat.' So I turned around again
with the horse, got my hat and went
back to the Pearly Gates. St. Peter said,
'You can't come inbecause the horse is
not good enough to come to Heaven.' I
said that this is a good horse but she is
just wore out from all the trips. He still
said she wasn't a good enough horse to
come in, so I went back down the
stairs. Then I woke up. I think St. Pete
was just not ready for me."
Ben, John Platt's wife, adds with a
laugh, "If his horse had been good
enough, they might have kept him."
