How (not) to cook a turkey

First-graders in Stacy Leaphart's class at Memorial Elementary
School give their version of how to prepare the holiday staple
El,,.':,


I-2 N -3
Trey Bender
I cooked it for two minutes. I
made it by getting out the juice and
ripping up the turkey and we had a
proud Thanksgiving.







Alexander Callahan
I am going to kill a turkey. Then,
put it in some sauce. I am going to
add some special ingredients. I am
going to cook it for 12 minutes.


Madison Culverhouse
The way I cook a turkey is I buy
it at Publix. Then, I season it. I
cram stuff in the turkey. Then I put
it in the oven. Last, I eat it up!
Alyssa Folts
To cook a turkey in an oven, you
need put something under it. You
cook it in the bottom of the stove. It
needs to be cooked very, very hot!
You probably cook it at 78 degrees.


Taivion Coston
I get my turkey from Publix. My
mom puts the stove on the number.
I put carrots and potatoes. Then I
cook it in the stove.







Nayeh Garcia-Palacios
You buy a turkey at Walmart,
then you put it in the oven. add hot
sauce and put it way inside. Then
you can eat. The end.


Ceyarah Veasey
First, you get the turkey from
Publix. Next, you put it in a ban-
ware frying pan. Then, put it in the
oven for 125 degrees and let it cook
for five minutes and 59 seconds.
When it is done put some salt and
pepper on it. If you have jeft over
stewed carrots put these in the
microwave and set it for 25 sec-
onds.
When the carrots are done you
put those in with the turkey.


Jenna Murphy
I would get a turkey at the store
and bake it in the oven. When it is
done, I would get the gravy of f of
,it because it .tastes better that way.
Then, I would be proud


Andru Boyd
First, you catch a turkey. Then
you cut the feathers off of it. You
put the turkey on the stove. Then,
you put the stove on 25 degrees.
Add some salt and eggs. Last, you
take the turkey off the stove and
this is how you make a turkey.


Chance Larsen
This is how I make a
turkey...First, I go hunting for a
turkey in the woods. I will catch
one turkey and I will take it home. I
will cut off the head and take the
bones out and cook it foi two
hours. I would also take the blood
out and add some salt on it.

Health Dept.

not closing,

just getting

an upgrade
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - The Highlands
County Health Department
announced on Monday that the
Sebring Clinic is being remodeled,
but the work will not disrupt the
quality of health care, according to
Planning Consultant Thomas Moran.
"With the hurricane season over,
and with the H1N1 clinics smoothly
under way, we thought it was a good
time to get some much-needed
maintenance done," Moran said.
"We are still seeing patients at the
Avon Park and Lake Placid loca-
tions."
According to Moran, the improve-
ments at the Sebring clinic will
cause it to be partially closed until
the completion of work, which is
estimated to be Dec. 21.
"The employees were getting
questions about the Health
Department closing for good, so we
just wanted to make sure that we let
folks know what was going on," he
said.

County

addresses

issues in

R&B audit
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - County
Commissioners and administration
took time to address the recent prob-
lems presented in an audit of the
County's Road and* Bridge
Department at their meeting on Nov.
16.
Assistant County Administrator
Rick Helms told the commission that
"included in that audit were some
findings that if you read just that
summary, it can give you a greatly
different perception of the audit
itself. "
According to Helms, the audit
pointed out four findings that were
attributed to weak or missing inter-
nal controls that Helms and other
management provided a response to,
and five areas of improvement that
the audit reported that needed to be
addressed as well, including a slate-
ment that the County violated state
statue when it spent more than
$150,000 from fuel tax funds on the
new Sports Complex.

Administrator Michael Wright stated

AP opts for local ordinance about airport authority

Withdraws special district request 1 . k


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK - Mayor Sharon
Schuler and council members Joe Wright
and AlJoe Hinson voted unanimously to
withdraw the city's request that the state
legislature create a special district and
airport authority for the city's airport dur-
ing Monday night's city council meeting.
Brenda Gray and George Hall were not
present.
That process is cumbersome for one
thing, and it has a quickly approaching
deadline because State Representative
Denise Grimsley would have to submit
the request to the lcgiklalure for action,
and a public hearing would have to be
held Dec. 3 in Tallahassee.
Additionally, the council wasn't sure it


would follow. through with creating a
special district through the legislature -
that writing a local ordinance would pro-
vide the city with more time and flexibil-
ity.
A concern was the economic climate
and the financial benchmarks the airport
would have to meet while setting up an
airport authority.
"I don't have a warm fuzzy feeling
about the economy," said C.B. Shirey,
airport manager.
"The city was never going to be off the
hook financially," Wright said. "By using
a local ordinance, we control the time
frame. It means we can wait for the new
council (to make the final decisions)."

Avon Park Homeless

Coalition moving out

of Housing Authority


WiNl operate

out of U.S.

27 office
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK - The
Highlands County
Coalition for the Homeless
announced Monday that it
is relocating out of Avon
Park's Southside to its main
office on Avon Boulevard
and U.S. 27.
Larry Shoeman, housing
authority executive direc-
tor, told the News-Sun in a
phone interview on
Monday that the contract to
case manage Avon Park
Housing Authority's emer-
gency transitional housing
residents was terminated in
October.
"Because. of the require-
ments with our 16-unit
housing project, which is
financed through the
Florida Housing Finance
Corporation and Housing
and Urban Development
(HUD), we will have to
have an individual trained
to process applicants and
meet the requirements of
both agencies. The
Coalition does not have the
training or certification for
that or to withstand the
scrutiny that those agencies
require," Shoeman said.
"They (Homeless
Coalition) are blooming
because of the economy.
They have several new
projects going, and they are
doing great job bringing
much-needed resources
into the community,"
Shoeman added. "We need
to make sure that we can
stand up to that scrutiny to
insure that we continue to
receive that HUD funding.
"Having our own person
to process the cases will
insure that we get the detail
and the policies are adhered
to and audited," Shoeman
said.
The agreement between
the two organizations states
that instead of paying rent,
the Homeless Coalition
takes care of the case man-
agement and crisis assis-
tance.
'Since the Housing
Authority has terminated
that agreement, the coali-
tion has until December to
relocate.
Shoeman said that the
new person would not be
hired right away. The $1.1
million rehab of 16 units
for emergency, applicants
would have to be finished,
which will start in March,
and then there will have to
be a screening and inter-
view process.


To contact the Avon
Park Housing
Authority for assis-
tance, or for emer-
gency housing, call
453-3995 or visit their
offices at 21 Tulane
Dr. in Avon Park to
pick up an applica-
tion.

To receive services
from the Homeless
Coalition, such as util-
ity payments or emer-
gency needs, an
appointment is need-
ed because of the
heavy influx of appli-
cants. To make an
appointment, call 452-
1086.

"The renovation of the
units won't take very long,
and then we can get going
on hiring someone. Maybe
April of next year at the
earliest," Shoeman said.
From the viewpoint of
Richard Reinhardt,
Homeless Coalition execu-
tive director, the move is
not the best for the commu-
nity.
"The Housing Authority
asked us to relocate, and we
took offices at the north end
of the county by the old
Walker Hospital. Because
the county has no public
transportation, it will be
even harder for many folks
to get to us," Reinhardt
said.
Reinhardt's organization'
focuses mainly on preven-
tion of homelessness,
bringing in approximately
$4 million per year, which
is mostly used to help fam-
ilies stay in their homes.
According to Reinhardt, it
is easier to prevent than to
fix homelessness.
"We spend about $35,000
per month in helping with
just electric bills. We are
trying to keep families in
their homes. Most of the
homelessness in the county
right now is being caused
by unemployment caused
by the state of the economy,
so we are trying to re-edu-
cate and retrain people to
help them get their next job
when they become home-
less. This will make it a lit-
tle harder for folks to coor-
dinate between the agencies
out there," he added.
"We are now receiving
200-300 calls per day from
those needing assistance. It
is getting crazy, but we are
seeking more ways to help
bring more help to those in
need," Reinhardt said.
Figures provided by
Reinhardt show that there
are currently 1,800 home-
less families in the county,
but that number is growing.

Getting ready to light up the Circle


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Jon Spiegel, center, troubleshoots some electrical issues Tuesday morning, while work-
ing on the Christmas lights at Circle Park in downtown Sebring. Spiegel thought the
problem was due to the irrigation, but soon realized that the lights simply weren't
plugged in correctly. The Christmas display will come to life Saturday Dec. 5 during the
Sebring Christmas parade. Following parade night, the lights will shine nightly from
6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. through Christmas. Santa Claus will be visiting the park nightly
and the puppet show will run approximately every 30 minutes each evening. 'This is
year 20,' Spiegel said with a smile.

Avon Park

woman

dies after

SUV hits

wild hog,
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
FROSTPROOF - An
Avon Park woman was killed
Sunday night after her car
collided with a wild hog.,
according to a Polk County
Sheriffs report.
According to deputies',
Mandi Montanez, 22, was
'driving west on the Avon
Park Cut-Off Road around 9
p.m.
The hog ran on to the road
in front of her 2002 Ford
Explorer just after B.H.
Griffin Road. The SUV
struck the hog killing it and
causing Montanez to lose
control of her car.
The Explorer hit an
incline, went airborne and
began to roll. Montanez, who
deputies say was not wearing
her seat belt, was ejected
from the car. She died at the
scene.
The Explorer continued to
roll and uprooted the two cit-
rus trees it struck.
Investigators stated that
Montanez was driving to
work and was on the phone
with her husband at the time
of the accident.
The husband went looking
for the crash scene, which he
discovered.
The road remained closed
until 2:30 a.m.

Council changes

tactics in quest

to establish

airport authority
Continued from page 1A
The council was also united in its belief that
the airport should become more than a trans-
portation hub. It needs to be a more active part
of the community, Wright said.
- "There is tension," Wright explained. "The
'airport seems too exclusive a club, (its adviso-
ry board) has to be more than a committee of
pilots."
Schuler and Hinson agreed. Both said it was
important to draw people out to the airport
who weren't interested in flying. Using the
site as a venue for some public events would
help, the council agreed.
" Shirey reported that a Christian Arts
Festival has already been held at the airport. It
tlidn't draw many people, but the organizers,
he said, were pleased with the site.
. Wright suggested the possibility of an
equipment auction.
; Maria Sutherlund, the city's project manag-
er, took over as interim city manager during
the meeting. Outgoing city manager Sarah
Adelt was on hand to answer questions and
smooth the transition.

outgoing city council member Joe Wright
good-bye Monday night. Adelt is leaving to
become the city clerk in Frostproof. Wright
chose not to run for re-election. The small
audience, gathered for the city council's reg-
ularly scheduled meeting, gave Adelt a
standing ovation. For her part, Adelt
thanked her co-workers and the city's resi-
dents, and expressed her love for the com-
munity.


:Health Dept. getting an upgrade


c Continued from page 1A
"The department is just
remodeling the configuration
bf the offices, painting, and
replacing some worn out cab-
inets and fixtures. We are still
in business and still serving
the community as normal.
- "We apologize for any
inconvenience that this may
cause. By next month we
Will be able to better serve
the community in our freshly
painted and remodeled clin-
ic," Moran said.
All other functions such as
administration, case manage-
ment, dental,
eligibility/billing, emergency


preparedness, environmental
health, epidemiology, health
promotion, Healthy Start,
immunizations, medical
records, school health, vital
statistics, wellness, the dia-
betes program, WIC,' and
nutrition will not be affected
by the remodeling and will
continue like always to serve
the community as always,
Moran said in a press release.
Other projects, such as the
school clinics for HIN1 vac-
cinations will also continue
as scheduled, Moran told the
News-Sun.
"The school clinics for
H1N1 are going as sched-


uled, but we are actually see-
ing fewer people taking
advantage of that than we
predicted. That is a good
thing in that our demand is
meeting the supply. Other
counties are not so lucky,"
Moran said.
The Health Department is
expecting more visitors
throughout the upcoming
year because of economic
based hardships.
"We are predicting that
more patients will come in as
people are laid-off. When
they lose their jobs, they
often lose their coverage,"
Moran said.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Plenty to be thankful for


We're keeping it simple this year,,
giving thanks this day before
Thanksgiving. All of us here
will be .celebrating together with a
potluck turkey buffet as soon as our
deadline is met.


We're thankful we enjoy
each other's company, and
that many among us really
can cook.
The pleasure and advan-
tage of working for a small
business is that it can become
a home away from home, a
second family, a source of
not only satisfaction and
pride, but support and friend-
ship.
To be a part of a business
that fulfills a critical function
in society on top of that, only
deepens our sense of content-
ment.
But we are not just grateful
for the people within our
walls - we are especially
grateful for all of you outside
our walls; for our readers and
advertisers.
As part of dur extended
family, we pull back the cur-
tain and share with you our
personal answers to the ques-
tion, "What are you thankful
for this Thanksgiving?"
"My kids," reporter Ed
Baldridge said. "They are
showing themselves to be
mature grown-up individu-
als."
Anita Marsella, circulation
clerk and receptionist, said,
"I'm thankful for every day
of life and that I have a job.


I'm also thankful I didn't
have to sail over on the
Mayflower."
"My family, my friends
and my two grandbabies,"
said Vickie Jones, senior
account executive.
"My husband is the first
thing I think about," said
Janet Emerson, who takes
care of legal advertisements.
and accounts receivable.
"He's at the top of my list.
I've been blessed, truly."
Verna Flexon, creative
director, said, "My dog
Cookie. She's a beautiful lab
mix who is teaching me
patience."
"I'm thankful that I'm
feeling good health wise, that
my needs are met and that I
have family and friends,"
Janelle Dennison, news clerk,
said.
'"I'm thankful for my hus-;
band, my family, my friends,
.and my job," Rena Newman,
our receptionist, said, adding,
"And I'm grateful that my
87-year-old daddy is still
with us. He was the baby of
12 and is the last one left."
Ken Barefield, production
coordinator, said,
"Considering the economy,
I'm thankful I have -a job, a
home to go home to, and food


on the table."
Circulation clerk Pat
Williams said, "I'm thankful
to be alive and healthy, to
have a wonderful husband
and family, and a job in these
tough times. I'm especially
thankful my grandson is back
from Iraq safe and sound."
"In a practical sense, I'm
thankful that I have a job,"
said Dan Hoehne, sports edi-
tor. "And in a general sense
I'm thankful for my health
and the good people around
me."

TODAY'S LETTERS


Proposed codification not a
power grab
Editor:
The Spring Lake Board of
Supervisors is requesting legislation to
modify its current codification for the
purpose of updating and streamlining
the district's governing document. The
present codification document enacted
in 2005 is for the most part unchanged
from the original codification of 30
years ago.
The proposed legislation (codifica-
tion document) addresses shortcomings
in the present codification and will
allow the district to better fulfill the
current and future needs of the commu-
nity. It updates the provisions of the
district charter to recognize popularly
elected seats to the district board; and
adds language consistent with other
Florida districts to conduct mosquito
control activities, fire control and
emergency medical service activities
within county rules, provide infrastruc-
ture for educational facilities, and
allows for enforcement of deed restric-
tions for defunct homeowner's associa-
tions.'
The proposed codification is not, as
has been reported, a power grab, but
provides the district with the necessary
authority to act in the best interest of
the community.
At the appropriate time as our com-
munity develops and grows, reasonable
citizens may wish to take measures to
provide for public safety, education and
an improved community appearance.
These revisions will provide the author-
ity to address those future endeavors.
The allegation that the board of
supervisors is violating their oath of
office is unfounded and insinuations
that the board members are corrupt are
baseless, irresponsible and insulting. In
fact, the board of supervisors is acting
responsively and through this legisla-
tive initiative is attempting to position
our governing body with the necessary
authority to meet the challenges of
growth in the future.
The citizens of our community are
encouraged to participate in the process
and attend meetings where they may
voice their ideas, concerns and opin-
ions, which serve to help our elected
officials as they act on issues relevant
to the community.
Brian Acker
Supervisor, Spring Lake Improvement
District

We can not pick and choose
the laws to obey
Editor:
The leadership of America is skating
on thin ice.
America has always promoted
Freedom of Religion, but they do not
promote a religion that promotes the


killing of other sects or religions. We
can no longer allow those in our midst
who promote the killing of their neigh-
bors because he or she is of a different
sect or religion, and when he does kill
gets a promise of a place in heaven,
this is not religion but lunacy or mad-
ness.
Any sect or religion that teaches this
madness has no place in America. All
religions who promote violating our
national laws should lose their tax sta-
tus and be investigated to the reality of
being, not a religion, but a terrorist
group, bent on the destruction of a free
nation. Render unto Caesar that which
is Caesar's ...
If we pick and choose the laws that
we will obey by man and the Supreme
Commandant, and those we will not '
obey, then we no longer have a "free
nation" where all men are equal. If we
are not a "nation of laws," then we
cease to exist as a nation. The Supreme
Commandant is watching from afar,
and so is the rest of the world., i

Is this country becoming
weak?
Editor:
I wonder how many people in this
country or the world for that matter,
really think we will make any kind of a
strong financial recovery without "coal
and oil"?
Our manufacturing plants and all of
our industries as well as our "small
businesses" need an ample, dependable
and reasonably priced supply of "coal
and oil." As clean as possible, prefer-
ably from the United States.
Wind, sun and battery need to con-
tinue to be developed. I wonder,
though, how many windmills, solar
panelsand batteries would be required
to run a car manufacturing plant along
with the tires, glass and steel neces-
sary? Once, all very successful in this
country. Pollution, you say? Are you
saying China, North Korea, South
Korea, India, Iran, etc. are running
their manufacturing plants without
"coal and oil"? Our "coal and oil"
would be used much cleaner in this
country. Pollution, you say? Ours
wourlbe cleaner and doesn't all pollu-
tion go into the same sky?
We are at least 50 years behind in
building nuclear power plants in this
country. Ask France, 10 percent unem-
ployed? Jobs don't come from govern-
ment or unions, the come from big and
small businesses. By the way, generally
speaking, businesses do not pay taxes,
they only send to the government what
they have first gotten from their coin-
sumers when they sell them a product.
I remember Pearl Harbor, we were,
as a country, weak. I hope we aren't
going down that road again.


I guess we would have our "gree-
nies" meet the enemy at our shores
With some pretty flowers. They proba-.
bly wouldn't have any guns. Heavens,
no.
Approximately four or so years ago,
the Russians invaded Afghanistan. The
Afghans would come out of their tun-
nels and caves, very elaborate as I
recall, like ants, slaughter the Russians
and disappear into their tunnels. I
would assume the tunnels, like the one
recently found in Iran, are still there. A
large conventional bomb or two target-
ed at a suspected mountain trim would
tell.
As I recall, President Reagan once
mentioned a shining light on a moun-
tain top to assure the world we were
here to help and protect them. About
now, that light may be sinking into a
hole.
With what the educational system in
this country has produced in the way of
highly educated politicians, I believe a
high school drop out or two may be in
order. Could it really hurt? Just think
what a $1.60 guess would do for the
RV industry.
Six hundred scientists on global
warming. Two hundred say the globe is
warming, 200 say it isn't, and 200 say
the other 400 have no way of proving
one way or the other, so much for
"higher education."

Crusade was success despite
economy
Editor:
The Shriners of the Highlands Shrine
Club and Shriners everywhere would
like to express their appreciation for all
the businesses and people who con-
tributed to our Hospital Days Crusade
on Oct. 28 through Nov. 7. We are
especially grateful this year due to the
economy. Everyone just seemed to dig
deep in their pockets and really come
through for the Children's Hospitals.
Monies collected once each year go
to support the Shriners Children's
Hospitals around the country and in
Canada and Mexico. This year marks
86 years the Shriners have operated
these hospitals at no charge for any
child who is under the age of 18.
'The Shriners operate 19 orthopedic
hospitals and three burn centers at a
cost of $725 million annually. Every
penny collected in this drive and other
donations go directly to the Shrine hos-
pitals.
Our children and Shriners every-
where thank each and every one of you
for your support.
Harry H. Lister
Hospital Chairman
Highlands Shrine Club

Special Social Security earnings

for military service


Special to the News-Sun,
For U.S. veterans under
certain circumstances, spe-
cial earnings from time in
the military from 1940-
2001 can be credited to
records for Social Security
purposes. These extra earn-
ings may a person qualify.
for Social Security or
increase the amount of the
Social Security benefit. The
special extra earnings are
granted for periods of active
duty or active duty for train-
ing. Special extra earnings
are not granted for inactive
duty training.
Veterans should pay close
attention to this ruling.
Social Security cannot add
these extra earnings to any
record until that person file
for Social Security benefits.
The information that fol-
lows only applies to active
duty military services earn-
ings from 1940-2001.
Here's how the special extra
earnings are credited:
* Service in 1978-2001.
If enlisted after Sept. 7,
1980 and the individual did


not complete at least 24
months of active duty or a
full tour of duty, may not be
able to receive the addition-
al earnings. Check with
Social Security for details.
For every $300 in active
duty basic pay, the veteran
may be credited with an
additional $100 in earnings
up to a maximum of $1,200
a year.
* Service in 1957-1977:
Veterans are credited with
$300 in additional earnings
for each calendar quarter in
which you received active
duty basic pay.
* Service in 1940
through 1956: Those who
served in the military during
this period, including atten-
dance at a service academy,
did not pay Social Security
taxes. However, Social
Security records may be
credited with $160 per
month in earnings for mili-
tary service from Sept. 16,
1940 through Dec. 31, 1956,
under the following circum-
stances:
The veteran was honor-


ably discharged after 90 or
more days of services; or
you were released because
of a disability or injury
received in the line of duty;

you can eat it and I am
proud I can make a turkey!


Colby Whitt

should make your turkey...I
think making a turkey is put-

if. Cook it at 137 degrees.
When it is done you put it
on the table, isn't it good?

County discusses issues raised in R&B audit


Continued from page 1A
that the audit was correct in
that the money was spent
inappropriately, and that the
follow-up adjustments were
not correctly made, he assert-
ed that the fuel taxes were
not misused.
"No money was ever mis-
appropriated, that was a little
misleading thing that was
mis-reported," Wright said.
"With regard to the expen-
ditures on the softball com-
plex. There's no question you
cannot use gas taxes except
for building roads and main-
taining roads and that sort of
thing. We know that. But in
this particular case, we sup-
plemented the Road and
Bridge department, which is
primarily a gas tax operation,
with more than $2 million of
general fund money. And that
more than compensated the
$ 56,000 that was not repaid.
I think that is the right num-
ber. And actually that proba-
bly have not been an audit
comment if we had made the
proper budget adjustments,"
Wright said.
Wright, also agreed that
there were mistakes made,
but that the county was work-
ing to make sure that those
mistakes were corrected as
quickly as possible.
"Mr. (Kyle) Green and I
both agreed that we needed to
audit Road and Bridge when
he took over. And we asked
the Clerk's office to step in
arid they did," Wright told
commissioners. "When we
identified some internal con-
trol issues, %\e changed them
almost immediately. We have
had some problems in the
past, but we conducted
inventories, and we've
expanded what we have to
do."
"By law we have to keep
an inventory of .items that
cost more that $1,000. Mr.
Green has implemented a
policy where we keep up
with inventory items that cost
more than $200. So I think
we are going to extraordinary
extra steps,." Wright said
about correcting the issues in
the audit.
Also noted in the Clerk's
audit were a lack of internal
controls, several overpay-
ments of vendors in excess of
$12,000, and missing equip-
ment obtained by six individ-
uals using county purchase
cards.
The audit also pointed out
that on several occasions, one
individual completed a requi-
sition, signed a receiving
report, received an invoice,
approved the invoice for pay-
ment and initiated increases
to the same purchase order
without proper oversight
involved, which is contrary
to the Florida Uniform
Accounting Manual.
"A lack of inventory con-
trols and a lack of internal
controls" were found during
the research of the purchase
cards of six Road and Bridge
employees, something that
county management is work-
ing to correct.
Items such as chain saws,
expensive binoculars and
digital cameras were pur-
chased by those employees,
but could not be located.
The 17-page document
again pointed out that the
county should. establish a
written policy to limit the
hauling of clean and spoiled
materials from Road and
Bridge storage areas, which
was an issue addressed in an
audit from 2007.
"We've had some prob-
lems in the past where we
have had some questionable
purchases. Where we identi-
fied those, we called in the
Sheriff's Office and asked
them to investigate, which
they did," Wright explained.

I -9 Devils manhandle McKeel


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com "
AVON PARK - Avon Park fol-
lowed through with their game plan
on Tuesday night when they took
control of the ball and ran away
with a 73-30 win against McKeel in
the Red Devil Gym.
McKeel picked up a quick six
out of the starting gate from
the outside, but the Devils Avoz
were able to quickly recover, .
and decided to use their j
height on the inside - going Mc
to Alonzo Robertson and
Cleveland Nobles-for consis-
tent baskets inside the paint. 3
"Go to the bigs, and let.
the big men finish it," said Avon
Park's Head Coach Luther Clemons
after the runaway district win at
home.
Robertson put in a respectable
22 points in a game where he spent
a considerable amount of time on
the bench due to the ever-growing
lead.
Nobles netted 16 points from the
inside, and also rested for some


n I


K
c5


time on the sidelines.
"I think this had to do with that
loss last week," Clemons said.
"That really hurt them because we
are not used to losing like that at
home."
Even though the Red Devils
fought back from a 20-point deficit
last Thursday against Clewiston,
Park they still dropped the pre-
season game in overtime
3 during the Bill Jarrett Tip-
Off Tournament.
eel And the Devils definitely
had their minds set on a win,
S doubling their lead to 18-9
in the first period.
McKeel, who was out-
matched for height on the inside,
decided to pepper away at the out-
side, taking their shots from the
other side of the circle, but the wild
shooting and defensive rebound
advantage allowed Avon Park to
widen their lead to 41-17 at the
halftime buzzer.
"The guys had it in their minds.

Clarke, Dewberry pace Streaks


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING - It was the lit-
tle men stepping up big
Monday night in getting
Sebring a big, season-open-
ing win over visiting Winter
Haven, 61-51.
Though the Streaks held a
definitive height advantage
over the Blue Devils, with
the likes of ,6-foot-9 Robert
"Jewel" Campbell, 6-foot-4
Joe Young and 6-foot-3 Toby
Solebello on the wing, it was.
5-foot-11 Devin Clarke and
5-foot-10 Marcus
Dewberry who lead Set
the way with 20
points apiece. .
"They get after it,"
head coach Princeton W1nter
Harris said of his
backcourt duo. 5
"There are still some
things we need to work on
with them, but they're capa-
ble of that at any time."
And the timing was key as
while Sebring was in relative
command throughout the sea-
son and district schedule
opener, Winter Haven was
never fully out of reach.
"Thby made some pushes,"
Harris said. "There were a
couple times they really cut
into the lead and started to
get close."


The big men did have their
moments, with Young power-
ing in for two in the first
period and lofting an alley-
oop to Campbell for a two-
hand throwdown.
Young got the second quar-
ter off to a good start as well,
laying one in off a Zach
Bullock steal and connecting
on two free throws.
But it was when the little
guys rose up that Sebring
took off.
Dewberry hit a 10-foot
runner and Clarke canned a
three on consecutive
dirng possessions to push a
14-13 edge to 19-13.
Clarke then scored
r Haven on a long two, a base-
line leaner and a drive
ki before Dewberry
I | pulled up on the break
to drain a three-point-
er and close the half with the
Streaks up 33-19.
A Blue Devil push, howev-
er, opened the second half as
a 7-1 run made it 34-26 three
minutes in.
But Dewberry- drove the
length of the court for two
and after a Desmon Parker
inside score, Clarke brought
the home crowd suddenly to
its feet with a high-flying,
two-handed dunk on the

Marcus Dewberry ventures into the lane amongst the trees for two of
his 20 points in Sebring's 61-51 win over visiting Winter Haven

Sebring's Connor Bauer finished the state
cross country meet, as well as his high
school cross country career, strong with a
7th-place finish in the Class 3A Finals.'

Strong finish

Bauer nabs Top-10 at State
By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Connor Bauer saved his best
for last.
The Sebring High School senior earned a
seventh-place finish with a 5K time of 16:00
at the 2009 FHSAA Class 3A Cross-Country
Finals at Dade City last Saturday.
"In the final home stretch, I was past the
point of feeling pain, I was looking at my
coach and I couldn't keep from smiling,"
Bauer said.
Blue Streak coach Jeff Shoemaker had plen-
ty to smile about as well.
"It was one of his best, if not the best race
he has run," Shoemaker said.
Shoemaker added that his senior finished
ahead of Charlotte's Tyler Cardillo, who had
bested Bauer as the individual winner at the
district and regional races.
"I took it out hard and that was part of my
game plan," Bauer said. "I had a 4:50, first
mile and I felt strong. At the end, I just kicked,
it in hard and I finished strong."
Now that he can look back on his senior
season, Bauer can enjoy his accomplishments.
He admitted the push to the state meet was
"pretty stressful."
"I definitely feel good about the way it
ended," he said. "Only the top ten at state get
a medal and I walk away with some hard-
ware."
Shoemaker believes that Bauer walked
away from his high school cross country meet
with much more than a medal.
"He is a great young man with a strong
Christian faith," Shoemaker said. "He comes
from a very close family and I think all
aspects of his life came to play in his success.
It's been a joy to work with him and his entire
family."

'Cats no match for Red Devils


Continued from 1B
that they would have to
come back. And I think that
made a difference,"
Clemons commented.


The running clock started
early in the third when the
boys form the Park began
scoring at will.
Although McKeel would


put back six more points on
the scoreboard, Avon Park
would rack up the score to
73-30 for the final.'
The Devils now go into"


the holiday break with a win
under their belts, and will be
back in district action
Tuesday, Dec. 1 with a home
game against Frostproof.

Devin Clarke wasn't able to get this dunk attempt to go
down, but he did hammer one home later on as part of his
20 points in Sebring's win over Winter Haven Monday
night.

Continued from 1B <'Tl o, lr;, 1...A


break.
He followed that up with a
lay-in off a Dewberry steal
and the lead was 40-29.
Winter Haven still had
more in the tank though,
scoring eight of the last ten in
the period to enter the fourth
down just 42-37 - and things
would tighten up even more.
Campbell followed a miss
with a put-back jam to open
the fourth-quarter scoring,
but the Streaks missed con-
secutive free throws on the
front end of the bonus and
Devon Walker hit a leaner
and a three to make it 44-42.
Two Tevin Toney free
throws were answered by
one-of-two at the line from
Vivian Morris, with Clarke
and Dewberry then each
drilling a three and Toney
scoring inside on a Dewberry
dish to again create some
breathing room.
The Devils took one last
shot with consecutive scores,
but Dewberry scored six
more points down the stretch
to seal the deal.
"This was a big win
against a tough, disciplined,
district team," Harris said.
"There are thing we need to
learn, like pulling the ball
back out and taking time off
the clock instead of driving

they continue the district
schedule with an away game

you should win by a lot, but
don't always," Sebring
girls basketball coach Mike
Lee said. "We should have

to see."
A 44-10 win, such
as the one the Lady Sel
Streaks put up at
Frostproof Monday 4
night, may have
been nice to see, but Pros
doesn't really help a
whole lot as the out-
come was never
much in doubt.
"I'm anxious for
tonight's game," Lee said
of Tuesday's matchup at
new district foe Liberty in
Kissimmee. "I really don't
know much about them, but
this will give us a better
look where we're at in the
district."
Shannon Williams lead
the way with 22 points, 11
rebounds, two steals and a
blocked shot, while Tangie
McCullors chipped in with


12 points, 12 rebounds, two
assists and five steals.
Coverage of Tuesday's
game at Liberty can be seen
in Friday's News-Sun as
Sebring then takes the rest
of the week off before fac-
ing Winter Haven Monday
at home.

"We'll have our
hands full with
them," Lee said.
"That should be a
really tough test for
us.
"I'm not sure I'd
want to face them at
home the first time


around," he continued, hop-
ing to have gotten a look at
them, win or lose, with a
later home date then prov-
ing more advantageous.
"But the schedule is what it
is and we have to go
through the district, regard-
less, to get where we want
to be."

CLUBS


Elks, Buttonwood Bay team up to send skullcaps to military


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Members of
the Sebring Elks 1529
Veterans Committee received
more than 73 knitted skull-
caps made by the Knitting
Club of Buttonwood Bay and
shipped them overseas to the
service men and women.
In an article written by
Rev. Antonio Hernandez,
titled "My Kingdom for a
Crown: An Around-the-
World History of the
Skullcap and its Modern
S ocio - P.olitical
Significance," he states that
the oldest skullcaps found so
far were on the. "Tollund
Man" and the "Iceman." Both
are ancient mummies approx-
imately 5 millennia old.
"Tollund Man" was found


in a Danish .bog, naked
except for the skullcap, and
"Iceman" was found in the
Swiss Alps wearing tethered
clothing and a skullcap.
The function of the skull-
caps are protection (spiritual
as well as physical), symbol-
ism, rank, identification, edu-
cation/training and commit-
ment as in religious or socio
political. Skullcaps protect
.the head from both heat and
cold.
According to Hernandez,
his research shows only the
Native American,
Polynesians, Micronesians,
Islanders, and Abprigines
seem to have no skullcap tra-
ditions. The Orient and the
Old World histories show the
skullcap as fashionable.

have since been shipped overseas to service men and women.

assisting

Ft. Hood

shooting

victims
Special to the News-Sun.
INDIANAPOLIS - The
American Legion's
Operation Comfort
Warriors program is donat-
ing gift cards to the men
and women who were
wounded at Ft. Hood earli-
er this month.
"Americans everywhere
have reached out to these
victims," American Legion
National Commander
Clarence E. Hill said. "It's
only appropriate that The
American Legion family
does its share. We have
sent $3,800 so each of the
38 wounded can receive
$100 gift cards to use at the
Ft. Hood AAFES (post
exchange)..This is on top
of the $10,000 of electron-
- ic games and instruments
we sent in Operation
Comfort Warriors dona-
tions to Ft. Hood just prior
to the shootings. These
gifts won't make the
injuries go away, but they
do show that we care.
"The government does a
good job of providing the
necessities," Hill contin-
ued. "Through Operation
Comfort Warriors we have
been able to provide gifts
to troops in military hospi-
tals everywhere. These are
items that usually don't
appearr in government
budgets, such as personal
sweat suits, I-Pods, DVDs,
phone calling cards and
other comfort goods. The
American Legion is ch4l-
lenging its members and
friends to continue giving
to those who have already
given us so much."
The American Legion
has already raised more
than $217,000 for
Operation , Comfort
Warriors since its inception
last December. Upon tak-
ing office in August,
Commander Hill set a goal
to raise an additional
$100,000 by year's end.
Donors can make online
contributions by visiting
www.legion.org/ocw or by
sending a check to
Operation Comfort
Warriors, PO Box 1055,

The facts about diabetes' effect on your feet


November is National
Diabetes Awareness Month.
In the US 23.6 million peo-
ple (eight percent of the US
population) have diabetes.
About 60-70 percent. of
people with diabetes have
mild to severe forms of dia-
betic nerve damage, which
often includes impaired sen-
sation or pain in the feet or
hands, slowed digestion of
food in the stomach, etc.-
Many Americans afflicted
with diabetes don't know
that the disease can damage
nerves in the legs and feet,
which, without treatment,
can lead to amputation. After
an amputation, the chance of
another amputation within
three to five years is as high
as 50 percent, according to
ihe National Diabetes
Education Program.
Unfortunately the rate of
amputation for people with
diabetes is 10 times higher
than for people without dia-
betes. Fortunately, with
comprehensive foot care pro-
grams can reduce amputation
rates by 45 percent to 85
percent.
Here are several tips to
help successfully manage
diabetes:
* Know the risk factors.
African-Americans are one
of the highest at-risk groups
for developing diabetes, and
it often runs in the family.
Talk to your family members
to determine if you are at
risk for the disease.
* Lose weight. People
with diabetes are often over-
weight, which nearly dou-
bles the risk of complica-
tions when it comes to foot
health.
* Exercise. As a means
to keep weight down and
improve circulation, walking
is one of the best all-around
exercises for the diabetic
patient.
* Wash your feet daily.
Using mild soap and luke-
warm water, wash your feet
in the mornings or before
bed each evening.
* Inspect your feet and
toes daily. Check your feet
every day for cuts, bruises,
sores or changes to the toe-
nails, such as thickening or
discoloration. If age or other
factors hamper self-inspec-
tion, ask someone to help
you, or use a mirror. Pay
special attention to open
sores or wounds that aren't
healing properly. Either one
could be a diabetic ulcer.
What is a diabetic foot
ulcer? A diabetic foot ulcer
is an open sore or wound
that most commonly occurs


on the bottom of
the foot in approxi-
mately 15 percent
of patients with dia-
betes. Of those who
develop a foot
ulcer, 6 percent will
be hospitalized due . -
to infection or other
ulcer-related com- -Foot
plication.
Once an ulcer is Dr.
noticed, seek care Ga,
from a podiatrist Luep
immediately. Foot
ulcers in patients with dia-
betes should be treated
quickly in order to reduce
the risk of infection

Diabetes
true/false quiz
An estimated 25 percent
of people with diabetes will
develop serious wounds on
their feet at some point in
their lives.
True. Foot wounds, ulcers
and infections are the most
common reason for hospital-
ization of people with dia-
betes. Treating these condi-
tions costs tens of billions of
dollars, according to the
American Diabetes
Association (ADA).

If a family member has
diabetes, it does not mean
that I am at risk for the
disease.
False. Diabetes is truly a
family affair. If someone in
your immediate family has
it, it could mean that you are
predisposed to have the dis-
ease as well. However, it
does not mean you will get
it. With healthy eating habits
and exercise, you have a
higher likelihood of avoiding
the disease.

People with diabetes may
experience elevated tem-
peratures on their feet
called hot spots, which can
be conducive to the forma-
tion of ulcers.
True. Podiatric research
has shown that people with
diabetes may experience a
rise in temperature in certain
areas of the feet, which can
lead to the formation of dia-
betic ulcers. As a preventa-
tive measure, a foot ther-
mometer can indicate when
foot temperatures are ripe
for possible ulcer formation.

If a person with diabetes
develops a diabetic ulcer,
an amputation is highly
likely.
False. There are several
effective treatment options
available to avoid an ampu-
tation, including vascular

intervention, com-
prehensive wound
care, infection man-
agement and proper-
ly fitting footwear.
However, the earlier
the wound is detect-
ed and treated, the
greater probability
an amputation can
be prevented. This
is why it is critical
to seek care from a
podiatrist.


Diabetic amputees are at
greater risk of dying than
those who do not have an
amputation.
True. A diabetic amputa-

tion can be deadly. In fact,
half of amputees with a
lower leg amputation die
within 18 months of their
operation, and 80 percent
won't survive five years,
according to the ADA
(American Diabetes
Association)
If you or a family member
have diabetes, now is the
time to take a step in the
right direction.
