Sheriff Benton: Man killed by deputies


'thought he was in some kind of war'


News-Sun staff
LAKE PLACID A man
was shot and killed by
Highlands County Sheriff's
Deputies on Friday after he
reportedly shot a neighbor
and then attacked deputies
with a sword when he was
ordered to surrender.
According to a press
release from Sheriff Susan


Benton, the. incident began
Friday at around 6 p.m. when
Henry Bullard, 45, of
Sunflower Avenue in Lake
-Placid was shot in the chest
while sitting in his driveway
talking on his cell phone. The
press release said his survival
was a "matter of an inch or
two."
While deputies \\ere secur-


ing that crime scene, they had
a call from a family member
of ,60-year-old Rocky Allen
Watson, saying Watson had
just shot somebody and was
running into a wooded area
armed with several swords
and a firearm.
Deputies set up a perimeter
around the area, calling in K-
9 units as well as a helicopter


'He took care of the most

precious commodity'

County honors longtime school bus

fleet manager Paul W Sparks


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com.
SEBRING When those who
knew him see a yellow school bus
in Highlands County, they think of
Paul W. Sparks.
When people talk of Sparks, they
talk about his dedication to getting
kids to school and home safely.
Sparks, 56, of Sebring, died on
Friday at his residence after losing
a long battle with cancer.
According to friends and family,
he was truly the man who made the
wheels on the bus go 'round and
'round for generations of school
children in Highlands County.
Sparks was employed by the
School Board for 33 years, and held
the position of Transportation Fleet
Manager for the district.
"Since he young, he was always
a mechanic. And he loved his job,"
his son Brannon Sparks told the
News Sun on Tuesday.
It was rumored that he even
washed the school buses during the
summers at Sebring High School.
"I can't speak to that, but I.know
he had a passion for making sure
that kids got to school safely," the
younger Sparks said.
That passion was also cited by
County Commissioner Guy Maxcy
during the Tuesday morning board
meeting, where commissioners
voted 4-1 to name a joint fuel depot
after Sparks, the man whose vision
Made it possible.
"He took care of the most pre-
cious commodity in Highlands
County, our children. We called
him 'Redhead' and he was also
instrumental in creating the joint
fuel depot between the county,
Sebring and the school board, and
making it work," Maxcy said dur-
ing the meeting.

Response Team members and
K-9 units located Watson and
confronted him, ordering him
to put down his weapons.
He refused, the press
release said, so an electronic

called a taser, was used in an
effort to subdue Watson, who

funds for new:

dog pens at

Animal Controt

Upgrad eda necessity,
commissioners, told
1By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING County
Commissioners approved budget
changes on Tuesday that allowed
progress on new dog pens at the,
County. Animal Control Facility to
continue.
Animal Control Director Darryl
Scott informed the commission that
the new 35-foot-by-65-foot dog pen
building and ,accompanying updates
to thecurrent pens at the Haywood
Taylor Boulevard facility were not
an option, but a necessity.'
The new dog pens will also update
the security and the cleanliness of
the old dog pens, allowing for better
quarantine and more efficient clean-
ing of each pen.
S"The average age of the current
animal pens is 20 years old, but the
older structures were not designed to
handle the, current quantity of ani-
mals coming in,", Scott said.
Animal Control impounded 2,906
cats 1,990 dogs and 1,287 other ani-
mals in the 2008-09 fiscal year, an
increase of 12.2 percent over the pre-
vious year. '
Additionally, Scott revealed some
shocking numbers from the Florida
Animal Control Association that
show the problem is widespread.
"One female dog and her offspring
can produce 97,000 puppies in six
years. One- female cat and her off-
spring can produce 420,000 kittens
in seven years. In order to prevent
unnecessary pet euthanasia, each
baby born in Florida would have to
adopt 15 dogs and 45 cats today,"
Scott told commissioners.
On the reverse side, Scott and his
staff are working diligently to

New electronic filing system is state of the art


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Bob Germaine rubbed his
hands together in satisfaction, smiling out
over the crowded jury assembly room at the
courthouse Monday morning.
"I'm very excited to have so many people
turn out," he said "We had a better turnout
than Orange County. But, actually I tricked
you. We have a jury trial starting today and
you're all up for jury duty."
The' audience, including lawyers, real


estate agents, title company workers, code
enforcement officers, city clerks and bank
representatives laughed. Then everyone got
down to business of learning about the coun-
ty's new system of electronic recording at the
courthouse.
Highlands is one of only 18 Florida coun-
ties to have instituted the system, which is
considered state of the art.

Linda Schroeder, whose maiden name was Padgett, stands with her sons, (left) Mike and
Chuck Driggers. Schroeder graduated Sebring High School in 1967. Mike Driggers donat-
ed a kidney to his mother about two weeks ago. He and his mother are doing well.


Son with a heart donates


kidney to his mother


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY,
christopher.tuffley@newssun.corn
Avon Park Mike
Driggers fears that when his
mother reads this article he is
in for big trouble, but he's
willing to take the risk.
His mother, Linda
Schroeder (nee Padgett),
graduated from Sebring High
School in 1967.
The eldest of five children,
with an alcoholic mother,
Schroeder pretty much raised
her brothers and sisters.,
Driggers said.
Schroeder began working
right out of high school,
learning bookkeeping and:
accounting on the job, gain-
ing respect and. responsibili-
ties as she went.
Ultimately, she wound up
in Duhiedin with Davidsofi's
of Dunedin Citrus Factory,
where she "virtually runs the
place," as Driggers said
proudly. "She made some-
thing of herself."
Divorced when Driggers
was nine, Schroeder,
although marrying and
divorcing a second time,
raised her two sons on her
own.
A little over 20 years ago
she was diagnosed with poly-".
cystic kidney disease, a
genetic disorder that slowly
leads to renal failure.
Over the years, Schroeder
found it more and more diffi-
cult to stay on her feet for
any length of time. She was
in increasing pain, and began
having trouble breathing.
When her kidneys were
recently found to be only 5
percent functional, it meant
she needed a transplant -- as
,quickly as possible.
Family members lined up
to be tested as a possible
donor; so did her employer.
Driggers was actually glad
when it turned out he was a
match.
He and his mother have
always has a special relation-
ship.
When he was 17 and a
senior in high school



SPD probes

shooting death
News-Sun staff
SEBRING The Sebring
Police Department is investi-
gating a homicide after a man
was found shot to death early
Monday morning.
According to Commander
Steve Carr of the SPD, 30-
year-old Alton Perry was
found dead at a home at the
east end of Lemon Avenue
after a 911 call came in
around 12:45 a.m.
"We have some leads
we're following up on, but
that's all we're going to
release at this time," Carr
said Monday afternoon. "It
doesn't appear this was a ran-
dom act."
A search of the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office Web
site revealed that Perry had
been booked into the county
jail 22- times for numerous
offenses, including drug
arrests, battery on a law
enforcement officer, driving
without a license and several
probation violations.


Driggers and his girlfriend,.
conceived, a baby who was
born barely'a week after
graduation. ,
They never married and
the baby's mother faded from
the picture within six months.
Driggers took over full cus-
tody of his son, Michael
Alexander Driggers Jr., rais-
ing him with help from his
family, but especially from
his mother.
"We've had hard times, but
we've always stayed togeth-
er, and she's the glue," he
said.
Being 17, Driggers was too
young to work full-time, so
he held down two part-time
jobs. Then, like his mother,
he learned through experi-
ence until now he is a man-
ager for 64 West Collision
.auto body shop. '
"Mom helped me get my
first car, then my first home,"
he said. "But she never asked
for any (repayment) and did-
n't interfere. She let me raise
my son the way I wanted to.
"She was always a strong
guiding force in my life. She
has always been there for my
son and me."
On Jan. 20, Driggers and
his. mom, surrounded by fam-
ily, entered Tampa General
Hospital for their procedures.
The operations went well,
Driggers' surgery lasting
about four hours, Schroeder's
about six.
Driggers is recovering
quickly and his mother is
making steady progress.


"The day after ;(the sur-
gery) her color was better,'
she was sitting up in a chair
smiling. You could tell the
difference right away," he
said.
Schroeder still has to
check into the hospital two
or three days a week.
Saturday she was admitted so
her anti-rejection drug
regime could be adjusted,
something that is common.
Now comes the part
Driggers worries will get him
in hot water with his mother.
"My mom is a very strong,
proud and sometimes down-
right stubborn woman who
has never asked for anything
from anyone in return.p..
"She has always worked
very hard and the bills don't
stop just because you get
sick. Even with her insur-
ance, the medication and
trips to the hospital are
becoming too much for a sin-
gle grandmother to handle
even if she won't say it."
For example, Driggers said
some of Schroeder's medica-
tions cost as much as $6,000
to $10,000 for a single dose.
"I'm the one doing the
asking," Driggers said firmly.
"I know she could use the
help."
Driggers is working with a
lawyer to set up a trust
account for his mother at a
local bank. While that
process takes its course, he.
may be reached for more

Winter

residents

invited

to APF

meeting

toX1 he News-Sun
SEBRi1G Thursday
night's meeting of the
American Party of
Florida will be centered
on winter residents.
The meeting. will be at
the Sebring Beef.
O'Brady's restaurant at 7
p.m. with a social hour
starting at 6:30.
"We think there are a
lot of people who are
down here in Florida for
the winter who are look-
ing for an alternative to
the two big box parties
and we would like to
introduce ourselves and
let them know who we
are," said American Party
of Florida Chairman Tom
Macklin.
The party is the only
orie to have been organ-
ized in Highlands County
and is a reinvigoration of
one of the components
that merged to become
the Republican party in
the mid 1850s.
"Our focus has been
that of the -founding
fathers, getting back to
the ideals of smaller gov-
ernment and lower taxa-
tion. It is a message that
is beginning to resonate
again," Macklin said.
- In addition, the topics
of the Florida '10th
Amendment movement,
the party's push to get the
E-Verify program into
local governmental poli-
cies and the upcoming
election cycle also will be
part of the session.
"We are really looking
forward to talking with
people from Indiana,
Ohio, Michigan,
Pennsylvania and all the
northern states that have
residents down here. In
fact, a lot of our members
already have roots in
many of the northern
states," said Highlands
County APF Chairman
Bill Youngman. "We
want to hear, .about the
problems thex! are having
back home and see if we
can offer a solution to
help them."

Man who shot neighbor killed

after throwing sword at deputies


Continued from page 1A
ing one deputy in the head.
SRT members shot and killed
Watson.
Benton said Monday after-
noon that at least seven mem-
bers of 'the SRT fired at
Watson multiple times. All
those deputies, as well as any
other deputy that was at the
scene, is on paid administra-
tive leave while the shooting
is being investigated. The
deputy who was struck by the
sword was wearing a helmet
and was just "nicked in the
forehead," Benton said.
Sunday's News-Sun indi-
cated that Watson fired a shot
at deputies. That report was
inaccurate, although an
assault rifle and at least one
more sword were recovered at
the scene.
Benton said that "numer-
ous" firearms, some of them
recently purchased, were
recovered from Watson's
home in addition to the
weapon he had with him
when he was shot.
"Our understanding is that
there was a long-term illness
situation with him, and his
family was trying to seek
treatment for him and he
refused to go," Benton said.
Benton also said the shoot-
ing of Bullard appeared to be
a random act. She said
Bullard is recovering from his
wounds and has been released
from the hospital. "He was
very fortunate," Benton said
of Bullard.
Watson called his son after
firing on Bullard and told him
he had just .shot someone,
Benton said.

'Our understanding is that there
was a long-term illness situation
with him and his family was
trying to seek treatment for him
and he refused to go.'

SUSAN BENTON
Sheriff


Benton said the investiga-
tion so far has revealed that
Watson's mental state was
"that he thought he was in
some kind of war." She said
there had been mdre than one
domestic violence call at his
residence in the past few
weeks.
According to the HCSO
Web site, Watson was arrested
on Jan. 5 and charged with-
battery and also with cruelty
toward child/abuse without
great harm after grabbing a
child by the shirt and shaking
him. hard enough to cause a
minor injury. He was released
on $15,000 bail the next day.
- Detectives, 'working with
the State's Attorney Office,
will coordinate their case and
together will make a determi-
nation as to the legality of the
shooting and when the
deputies return to full duty.
"Our deputies did an out-
standing job, their timely and
coordinated response .to a


serious situation prevented
possible further violence in
the, normally quiet neighbor-
hood," Benton said in the
press release.
"It is difficult when anyone
is injured or killed and our
investigation will be thor-
ough. Our thoughts are with
the families of both men, and
victim advocates' will be'
working with the families to
help them through this tough
situation. I am personally
thankful that all of our
deputies are fine and were
able to go home to their fami-
lies."
When asked about com-
ments that the entire incident
had been captured on video,
Benton said that none of the
patrol cars' equipped with
dashboard cameras were
parked close enough to the
scene to capture the shooting.
"The closest vehicle was 4a
K-9 truck and they don't have
video," Benton said.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Shooting a tragedy for all involved


Our 'hearts go out to everyone
involved in the shooting incident
Friday evening when one man,
Henry Bullard, was shot, and the 'shoot-
ing suspect, Rocky Allen Watson, was
killed in a confrontation with Highlands
County Sheriff's deputies.


It is hard to imagine the
pain Watson's family must be
going through. To lose a
loved one so unexpectedly,
and under such tragic circum-
stances, is a bitter burden
indeed. They have our sin-
cere condolences.
Hopefully further investi-
gation may make clearer
what inner torment led
Watson to put himself and
others in harm's way.
It is equally difficult, how-
ever, to imagine what was


going through the minds of
the deputies responding to
the calls for help.
It- has to be unnerving
searching the woods in grow-
ing darkness for a man
thought to be responsible for
one shooting already. The
idea of being a moving target
in unknown circumstances
isn't easy.
Then, after finding the sus-
pect armed with at least a
sword, discovering him unre-
sponsive to their calls for a


peaceful surrender, and
seemingly impervious to the
use of an electronic control
device, the deputies were left
in a terrible situation.
Especially when Watson
threw the sword, hitting a
deputy in the head.
We have as much sympa-
thy for the deputies who had
to stop Watson with deadly
force as we do for Watson's
family -_' innocent
bystanders all, caught up in a
nightmare not of their mak-
ing.
We need to remember the
high risks law enforcement
officers face every time they
answer a call.
Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper Nick Sottile's death
in the line of duty simply
pulling over a car for a minor
traffic violation is a


reminder of just how danger-
ous police work is and how
much stress their families
endure.
But death isn't the only
danger. Consider the pain
caused when moral people
have to resort to deadly force
in the course of their work.
In the best of all possible
worlds, people with deep
troubles would have a place
to go for help. In the best of
all possible worlds, police
officers could talk everyone
in from the ledge. In the best
of all possible worlds, the
facts would be clear immedi-
ately and every story would
have a happy ending.
But this is the real world,
where people get hurt, infor-
mation comes late, questions
remain unresolved and every-
one grieves sooner or later.

Treat veterans locally
Editor:
Why don't they let veterans go to
their hometown hospitals instead of
going all the way to St. Petersburg, or
some other veteran's hospitals
throughout the country?
It would save a lot of taxpayers' bil-
lions of dollars every year for build-
ings, medical staff, doctors, janitorial
staff, upkeep and repairs on buildings,
medical supplies and equipment and
transportation and veterans would be
closer to their home and loved ones.
Their stay could be billed to the
Veteran's Administration just as it is
with Medicare, or Medicaid, or their
insurance companies.
Wouldn't this be a lot more sensible
and economical than our present sys-
tem, this would save billions of dollars
every year.
Or am I missing something?

SprinkLake development
has a political mess
Editor:
The public, by its apathy and lack of
interest, is a contributor to corrupt
government. This-does not release
those elected or appointed from fulfill-
ing their oaths of office and to serve
the people. "Most" political officials
use their.positions to serve themselves,
using the tax dollar for their own self
interest. The tax dollar "is not" their
own piggy bank. It is a criminal act to
use the tax dollar in this fashion.
Spring Lake Improvement District is
attempting a corrupt political "power
grab." This might be the most blatant
attempt ever made by a small elected
body to hijack a community, "without"
the people ever being aware of what is
happening. Their actions with respect
to this new proposed charter are incon-
siderable at' best and indescribably des-
picable at their worst.
The board, SLID had admitted that
there has been no voter referendum,
district vote or survey of property
owners. We, the people of Spring
Lake, have started a survey, those
opposed to any more powers, especial-
ly to access property, is running at 100
percent. The SLID board and its man-
ager "do not" need any more power.
They do need to understand that they
are responsible only to the people, no
one else and that their only job is to


TODAY'S LETTERS
manage a small drainage district, noth-
ing more. SLID has now, after being
turned, not once but twice by State
Attorney General Bill McCollum, stat-
ing that SLID lacked the power to buy
a golf course. They now state that the
new bill isn't an attempt to get around
that advisory opinion.
At the last public meeting, the lobbi-
est for SLID put forth a bill before
Senator J.D. Alexander, Representative
Baxter Troutman and Representative
Denise Grimsley. They, SLID, are ask-
ing for broad new powers that through
assessment powers, would drive many
senior citizens, in the future, to lose
their homes through foreclosure. They
are also asking permission to take over
defunct homeowner associations. "All
of this," without a voter referendum,
districtwide vote or survey of property
owners. ,
'We, the people of Spring Lake, were
at that meeting with the Senator and
the two Representatives. We opposed
the bill and asked that the bill be
"killed" at the local level as it violated
the rights of Spring Lake home and
property owners. Representative
Baxter Troutman agreed that it should
be killed at the local level. But we are
still waiting and it should be interest-
ing to hear from Senator Alexander
and Representative Denise Grimsley.
Hoping that they will represent the
people and not those of special inter-
est.
We, the people of Spring Lake, wish
the people of Avon Park, Lake Placid,
Venice and Sun 'N Lakes good luck
with your political problems. Maybe
next election we can wake up some of
South Florida's political officers.
SLID and "most" South Florida pub-
lic officials have illegally used the tax
dollar for their own agenda.

De ja vu all over again
Editor:
It seems like I've been reading and
witnessing the same thing for nine
years: same plot but different scenar-
ios. I've already covered corporate
blunders the past 100 years where the
corporate elite "erred," but working
class taxpayers paying the bill.
Let's pick up with Enron, where 100
million workers lost their pensions,
benefits and/or jobs. Enron employees
were not allowed to sell their shares,
but Enron officials did. Then the rich


(top 5 percent) received significant tax
breaks while the working class
received nothing. The out-sourcing of
jobs continued. (tens of thousands) by
manufacturers who shipped their plants
first to Mexico, then to China and
India, with people's taxes footing the
bill. To "pour salt on the wound" that
"elite" took their millions of dollars
offshore to avoid paying taxes. They
continued to reap harvests from their
"investments" in China, and elsewhere.
Does anyone recall why President
Clinton passed NAPTA? To send the
jobs to Mexico to keep their workers
,there instead of coming here. Also, it
was bad enough that corporate raiders
stole pension funds from corporations
who were required to reserve funds for
pensiopns, benefits, etc.; then corpora-
tions pleaded to the Republic Congress
that they could not afford to pay those
pensions, etc. So Congress compiled
and "relieved" more working people of
their hard-earned benefits. Again,
please recall that these pensions were
earned in place of wage increases.
Back then, they were not taxed, but
now they are. The end result: The mid-
dle class is disappearing before our
very eyes.
As noted numerous times, the mini-
mum wage is the standard, no benefits
for two-thirds of working people,
including temps/part-time workers.
Back in the '80s, the term "entrepre-
neur" was introduced to the public.
The mass numbers of workers who had
spent their careers with one corpora-
tion were simply fired to reduce the
cost of labor; however workers could
then contract with the corporation to
do the same work for less salary but
no benefits with a six-month or one-
year commitment; millions of them
today.
In the meantime, wages for regular
folks remain stagnant while costs con-
tinue to rise. It is astonishing that cor-
porations and utilities continue to
increase costs even though workers
remain at the same wage level.
Especially retired people, those who
worked for 30-40 years to earn those
pensions, etc. then watch them
decrease or disappear.
All of the above are factual history,
not conjecture.

Clerk filing system goes high tech


Continued from page 1A
company selected to provide
the necessary software, train-
ing and support gave a
demonstration of how the
software worked.
Simply put, E-recording
will save time and money ,by
processing, filing and storing
legal documents electronical-
ly.
"I've never seen such a
tough economy in my life,"
Germaine told the audience
of 75, some of whom were
from different counties. He
said his budget had been cut
by 18 percent in the fiscal
year 2008-09 and would
probably be cut another 8
percent this year.,
"In the past," he said, "the
government had lots of
money and' spent it. No
more," he said. "Even when
things bounce back, we won't
replace laid off workers. (E-
recording) will help us save
money, but it won't work
unless you like it."
Among the benefits, for


example, a courier no longer
has to hand' deliver files.
Documents can now be sent
directly, to the records depart-
ment in seconds, or to any-
where E-recording is in
place.
Original documents are
scanned to the system.
Safeguards prevent tamper-
ing or altering material.
Software can catch mistakes
in the paperwork and notify
the sender immediately for
corrections, or sometimes
even make the corrections
itself. Documents may also
be indexed.
This will be a real benefit,
Germaine said, especially for
offices down in Lake Placid
that will no longer need
employees running back and
forth to the courthouse.
It will be easy to complete-
ly index all records, making
them available online. When
the process is completed,
even historical documents
dating back to 1921 will be
on file.
The system will not just


store financial documents,
like mortgages or liens, but
.criminal cases too. It will,
make public records much
more accessible to everyone.
It will be easier, for example,
for code enforcement officers
to keep track of liens.
There are some costs,
including an annual fee for
use of the software and
access to Simplefile's sup-
port and training teams.
Pamela Karlson P.A. office
is already online. "It shortens
the gaps (in time)" she told
the audience, "and reduces
the opportunities for mis-
takes..
"This is where the future is
going. We're very supportive
of this."
For more information call
Antonia Rivera, recording
director for the Clerk of
Court, at 402-6596; or Pat
Sponem, sales account exec-
utive with Simplefile, at

Lady:Streaks effort not rewarded


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
WINTER HAVEN The
Lady Blue Streaks ended,
their season with heads held
high, putting forth the effort,
but hot quite able to over-
come Osceola in Monday's
District 5-5A Tournament
opener.
"We asked that the girls
come out and be competi-
tive," head coach Mike Lee
said. "This was a good
matchup and overall we
'pla)ed will, it wasju't alit-7'
:tle thing here and there, that
*kept them ahead.",
The two teams had split'
the season series, with
Sebring pulling out a
42-40 win just a little OscI
over two weeks ago, 5
and as it started out, 5
the Streaks seemed on Sb
their way to making it
two in a'row.
Three early hoops
'from, Shannon
Williams got the Streaks out
to a 6-1 lead and back to
back three's from Madison
Rose helped hold the margin
fora 16-11 lead after one.
But while the Lady
Kowboy's three-point per-
centage in the first quarter
was off the mark, the per-
sistence in firing away from
downtown started to pay off.
"I thought we did a good
job with our perimeter
defense," Lee said. "We
keyed on (leading scorer
Sarah) Dileonardo and did a
good job with that. But her
teammates stepped up, as
they're supposed to do and
made some."
Dileonardo and Rose trad-
ed trey's, to open the second
and Tangie McCullors hit a
baseline jumper to push the
lead to 21-14, but Osceola


e
r,


went on a 9-1 run, with
Constance Uzzle hitting
from beyond the arc and
lyanna Pryce scoring twice,
to get the lead at 23-22:.
McCullors and Jerica
.Moore then each hit a long
two, but Uzzle drained
another three and
Dileonardo scored inside for
a 28-26 Kowboy lead at the
half. .
The Lady Streaks kept it
close and 'seemed on the
verge of taking over at vari-
ous times in the second half,
but each time, Osceola had
an answer.

S Sam Jansen hit a,
short jumper, but a
Dileonardo three at the
buzzer stretched it again to
41-35.
That potential momentum
boost for Osceola was short-
lived, however, as Rose
canned a three to open the
fourth and Williams scored
on a follow, was fouled, and
finished up the three-point
play to. even things at 41
apiece.
But the Lady Kowboys
answered back in kind,
regaining the momentum
with an Uzzle three and
Dileonardo three-point-play
to bring the margin back to
six.
Sebring kept pushing,
having their chances to get
back into it, but a bucket
each from Williams and
McCullors wasn't enough to

offset three Osceola free
throws down the stretch.
"We had a good night
overall, handling their press
all night," Lee said. "But a
shot didn't fall here, a. shot
didn't fall there, we got a
rebound a couple times and
couldn't finish. It was the
little things and in a tight


game, that will hurt you."
"Does it hurt? Sure, it's
supposed to with all the time
and work we've put in," he
continued. "But we talked to
the girls before the game and
told them we wanted them to
represent Sebring well, to
come out and compete and
they didn't let me down."


Panthers off to fast start


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
The South Florida base-
ball Panthers opened the
season on the road and made
it a worthwhile trip S
with an impressive
15-4 win over Palm
Beach State Saturday. 1
Ranked sixth in the
preseason polls, the
green and gold
Panthers looked to be
a formidable early
challenge for the orange and
black.
"Adam Simmons pitched
out of a bases loaded jam in


the first inning and that real-
ly got us going," head coach
Rick Hitt said. "After that,
our relief corps threw strikes


and our hitters just
kept coming."
That they did as
the Panther line-up

going 4-for-5, Kyle
Jackson 2-for-3 and

whallop of the day with a
grand slam for four of his
six RBI.
"Palm Beach is an out-


standing club," Hitt said.
"But we really got after it
,with the bats with several
guys contributing."
The win came a day after
the club traveled up to
Leesburg and took a 7-5,
come-from-behind decision
over Lake Sumter.
After jumping out to an


early 4-0 lead, the Panthers
saw the Lakers rally to go on
top 5-4 in the seventh.
Mike Dixon came on .in
relief to stem the tide with
one out in the seventh and
threw a scoreless eighth and
ninth, giving the offense a
chance to win it late.
"Lake Sumter is always a
very difficult place to win,"
Hitt said. "Joe Kase gave us
some quality starter innings
and Dixon pitched really
well in relief to stabalize the
game for us. It was a good

play. The nice thing about
golf is that no matter what

It's an individual game."

more Lacey McCall plated a
run in the the two-run third
and then Quigley struck
again with a two-RBI double
in the fourth.
Though her nerves were
an issue early on the mound,
Quigley was able to work
'through 'he Central Florida
line-up with little damage
before the Patriots managed
to scratch for. two in the
third.
"There were butterflies,"
Quigley said. "But being
able to hit really helped
calm me down."
A three-run sixth broke it
open as Quigley's double
was followed by three
straight singles from
Heather Barnes, Christina
Luciano and McCall.
Central Florida scratched
for one more run in the top
of the seventh but it wasn't
nearly enough in the 9-3
win-.
"It was good to get that
win and now I'm going to
put predominantly sopho-
mores out there," Falla said
between games. "I want the
freshmen to have that feel-
ing of a win but. not get too
confident."
Acting as the experienced
stabilizer for the second

the Central Florida staff for
a six-run second, with RBIs
coming from Magen
Marrero, Simmons, Quigley
and Luciano .and two from
Ashley King.
Wellnitz settled in from
there, allowing just an
unearned run in the fifth
while the offense kept piling
on with a run in the third and
three- more in the fourth to
built an 11-3 lead.
After the unearned score
made it 11-4, Quigley ended
it with a three-run jack in the
bottom of the fifth to enact


the mercy rule. ,
"It's nice to get that first
win and come out with
momentum right off the
bat," McCall said. "We've
got the talent and the thing
is, with this team, (from
player) one through 19, we
all share the goal to win."
Though the wins did
result in one side effect that
often can hit a young team -
a bit of overconfidence.
"They played well and I
saw what I was hoping for,"
Falla said as his team stayed
under cover of the batting


cages on a rainy Monday.
"But I had to get on them
because they were talking
about their batting averages
and getting a little cocky.
It's just the first of a lot of
games and those averages
will come down so they
can't get complacent."
The team was slated to
face take Sumter in a dou-
ble-dip Tuesday at Panther
Field, weather permitting, in
hopes of building of the
opening wins.

Immediately after warm-
ups George Dumont said, "I
am nervous about a couple of
my stunts, but I am just hop-

everything hit solidly."
Sebring was called onto
the competition mat with
their hearts racing.
As' their music began the

.by Stephanie Taylor.
"When everyone wowed at
my first basket-toss I felt
amazed, powerful, and excit-

formance," Taylor said "I
was surprised and a little let
down when my final basket-

toss didn't go, but it was just
a mistake and it will go up to
close the routine at state."
Throughout the entire rou-
tine three stunts fell and
noone could guess how they
might effect the standings.
. The awards ceremony was
suspenseful for everyone
because no one had any idea
what place they would
receive.
"After we performed and
won first I felt like it was an
empty .victory," senior
Amanda Kennedy said. "We
all could have given so much
.more than we did. We
weren't at all mentally pre-
pared to do so badly. Most of
the team was disappointed in
how we performed."
And so even in victory, the
team was more focused on
what needs improving as they
look toward state.

CLUBS & ORGANIZATIONS


Jacobson speaks to AP Founders Garden Club


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The Avon
Park Founders Garden Club
held its January meeting at the
home of Rosemary Kunz.
The guest speaker for the
meeting was Dee Dee
Jacobson from the County
Extension Office, who pre-
sented a program on Florida
friendly/native plants. She
provided some very interest-
ing facts about Highlands
County and Florida.
We all know that in the
winter months the population
of Highlands County swells.
The amazing fact is that 80
percent of our population.
comes from retirees. She also
revealed that Florida ranks
No. 1 in the United States in
pesticide use. Florida uses
more pesticides than the other
49 states collectively. Florida
also ranks high in water
usage, this winter, especially.
Another interesting fact
presented was that most peo-
ple think the grass turns
brown and dies due to lack of
water. The opposite is true.
The No. 1 cause of dying turf
is overwatering." The turf
doesn't have a chance to dry
out, causing fungus and mold
to \develop, which in turns
kills the turf. If watering
guidelines are followed, turf
will flourish.
Another problem facing
Florida yards, is the soil pH
level. Samples can be brought
to the Bert J. Harris


Lunch Club Wednesday meeting attracts nearly 160


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Lunch Club Wednesday" a
ladies networking club for career and 'career
retired met this past month with nearly 160

Albritton, Lunch Club Wednesday founder, at

wednesday.com.


Agriculture Center for testing,
then the soil can be.amended
to achieve the proper level.
All areas of a single yard do
not have the same pH level, so
samples should be taken from
several areas. The plants that
will grow in your yard is
determined by the pH level of
the soil. This program was
very informative. Anyone
wishing further information
should contact the Agriculture
Center.
The club is planning its
plant sale for the second
Saturday in March. It will be
held on Main Stre&, but the
exact location has not been
determined.
Charlotte Truitt told the
club of .her experience in
bringing home a plant she had
purchased. She cautioned
members to be careful in the
way a plant is transported.


Betty Scott", distributed*
printed material in prepara-,
tion for the March meeting on,
flower arranging. .
. Martha Williams told the
club, about a plaque she, had
seen in Avon Park Museum
commemorating individuals.
The club voted to donate
money to the Museum to.
place engraved plates on the
plaque, in memory of Mary,
Johnston and Arden
Sutherland, .who had been
active members of both the
Garden Club and the Museum
Society.
The next meeting of the
Avon Park Founders Garden
Club will be at 10 a.m. on

'Florida's Oldest Dealer Becomes Newest Dealer


AVON PARK In 1931,
J. Lawler Wells opened
a Plymouth Dodge
dealership on Main Street
in downtown Avon Park.
Through the years many
changes have taken place in
the community, the world,
the economy and especially
in the automobile business.
Yet, the Wells family have
bucked all of the trends and
have continued as a family
owned business and today
is the oldest automobile
dealership in the state of
Florida.
Some of the changes
throughout the 78 years of
business are the addition of
Chrysler to the company,
the dissolving of Plymouth,
and in 1998 the relocation
of the store from Main
Street to US Highway
:27 just south of Avon
Park. While Chrysler has
changed ownership and
management four times in
thelast decade,Wells Motor
Company has maintained
it's stability, faithfully
selling their product ahd
caring for their customers
;the way they would want to
'be treated.
So much for the old.
January 15, 2010, Wells.
Motor". Company became
the newest Jeep dealer in
the' state of Florida. Not
only are "they the newest
Jeep dealer, they are the
exclusive Jeep dealer for
Highlands County. For
several years the dealership
has. 'been certified by
Chrysler to service Jeeps
but they are now a licensed
new Jeep dealer able to
meet. -all. of your sales,
service and parts needs.
J.D. Powers state that Jeep
'owners are the. most loyal
:customers of any domestic
brand of vehicle. It is
exciting to have these loyal
owners now be a part of the
Wells family of customers,
matching the most stable
dealership with the most
loyal vehicle owners.
Highlighting 'this new
Jeep franchise, Wells
Motor Company is hosting
an 'introductory sale for'
two weeks from February
1st through the 13th.,
Free refreshments will be
available throughout the
day, there will be daily door
prizes awarded, along with
registration for a 42 inch flat
screen TV. For this limited
time of two weeks, Wells
will be offering employee
pricing on every new Jeep,
Dodge, Ram and Chrysler
sold. GMAC's special
financing and all other
eligible factory incentives
will also apply lowering the
sale prices even further.
There probably will never
be a better time to purchase
a new vehicle in 2010, than


the first two weeks of
February at Wells Motor
Company.
It has also been noted that
Wells Motor Company does.
not have any added dealer
fees, administration fees,
prep fees or doc fees, saving
the comparative shopper
up to $999 on their vehicle
purchase.

Town and Country
Mobile Home Park
By Janet Day,

SEBRING The first
month of 2010 is closing out
and it has been very busy
here at Town and Country.
Our latest arrivals, Tom and
Wanda Bogaczyk,' left win-
tery Pennsylvania to the cold
spell in Sebring. However,
they seem very happy for our
70s now and everyone hopes
our cold spells endure only
couple days at a time. Our
northern blood surely thins
rapidly as we become accus-
tomed to Florida weather.
Also returning are George
and Helen Dambrowitz of
Hudson Bay, Ontario (talk
about cold country). They
were here temporarily to pur-
chase their home on
Springtime and on the way
south in January incurred a
traffic accident in Virginia.
Friends were traveling south
and joined them, picked up
the Dambrowitz's and their
possessions and drove them
plus a U-Haul to their home
in Town and Country. An
unfortunate incident but isn't
it wonderful we can call upon
friends to assist in our needs?
We are happy, for their safety
and welcome them as new
residents.
Joining us also are renters,
Tom .and Peggy Ruleman
from Virginia; and Joe and
Nell Young from North
Carolina. The Youngs and
their sister/brother-in-law
visited last year and enjoyed
our park enough to return.
Happy for everyone and trust
you will enjoy your stay in
Sebring.
Another in-park sale has
occurred. in that Tom
McQueary has purchased the
former Schnoor property on
Town and Country. Due to
health reasons, the Schnoors
have returned to New Jersey
to be with family. We are told
when possible, Don enjoys
helping with the many out-
door activities at the family
farm. We wish them well.
Some folks have experi-


enced varying illnesses this
month. Alma Cormier,
Wendy Hervey, Barbara
Quinn, Bill Aeschliman all
have been ill at home or hos-
pitalized and returned home.
Wolfgang Topp suffered
some rough bruises in a cycle
accident on U,S. 27. He has
healed and back to Lowe's;
we're thankful he wasn't hurt
more seriously. Our prayers
to all for continued recupera-
tion and return to good
health.
We offer our condolences
to Marge Mace on the death
of her brother.
The annual garage sale was
very successful; perhaps the
camaraderie experienced is
as meaningful as the finan-
qial profit. Many helped at
the gate, used golf carts to
help transport guests, grilled
and served snacks/lunch, or
helped in the kitchen/club-
house. It was a wonderful.
sunny day to be out and trust
all our visitors enjoyed the
day. Thanks from Chuck and
me to all who so graciously
don4te,their "leftovers" to the
Highlands County Red Cross
for our semi-annual garage
sale on Feb. 13. Our sincere
appreciation to all. Leftover
baked goods were donated to
the Mission on Lemon Street
and they are always so thank-
ful for assistance. And a big
plus thanks to all who offer
such kind comments about
our park. We are happy for
the opportunity to show off
our domain.
I was advised the men's
breakfast was so successful
they are returning to Bob
Evans on Thursday, Feb. 18.
Attendance in January: 23.
Was also told the ladies won
Rpund No. 1 with 32 attend-
ing their luncheon. So
assume the men will be "try-
ing harder." Ladies luncheon
is Feb. 3 at Sunset Grille. All
are welcome to both.
Men who prepared the
January breakfast did a great
job. Michelle Johns knocks
on many doors and her record
was 60 in attendance for this
past Saturday. Thanks to all
for their efforts.
The weekly activities are
well received. Shuffleboard
is picking up as the weather
cooperates. 23 attended one
Bible study 'recently and
weekly averages about 20.
The group thanks Allen
Barber for leading the study.
We're hoping for the new
heater and sunny days for
resuming water aerobics
soon. Wendy asks for more
card and game players on
Monday/Tuesday evenings.
Monday social and Tuesday
lunch draw a steady group.
Our "International or
Gram's Favorite" potluck
supper was a great hit this
past Wednesday. We had a
varied menu and many sup-
plied recipes we all want to
try to duplicate. Thanks again
to Wendy and crew.
Town and Country had


wonderful representation at
the January FMO meeting
held at Sebring Village.
Sixteen people attended the
meeting, which featured
Sheriff Susan Benton and
Nell Hayes, crime prevention
practitioner. Sheriff Benton
spoke concerning several
aspects of the sheriff's
department work to include
jail population, drug preven-
tion programs and traffic
information for the area. Very
encouraging stats for
Highlands County. Nell
encourages all mobile home
parks have a Neighborhood
Watch in place and she is
dedicated to help with train-
ing and organization. Both
passed along good informa-
tion.
The next meeting will be
Feb. 11 at Crystal Lake Club,
9:30 a.m. Special
Homeowner Association
workshops will be offered for
new officers or other interest-
ed persons. Please support
the FMO the purpose is to
protect mobile homeowner
rights'and the staff assists us
in many ways, to include our
own lobbyist-, Nancy Black,
in Tallahassee. Rick Ingler is
our local chapter president
and contact.
A special by-law change
was voted upon at this week's
HOA meeting to change the
fall nominating date for new
officers. HOA feels this will
enable more involvement by
those arriving later in the fall..
We are privileged to have
that freedom; we need to be
thankful and use the opportu-
nity.
Other February events
include Valentine's Day
Dinner on Saturday, Feb. 13
at 5 p.m. Golden Corral will
be catering a complete steak
dinner so, Sweethearts, no
one has to cook! Sign up
soon. February in-park
breakfast is Saturday, Feb.
27.
The Haitian earthquake
directly affected one couple
in our park. Doug and Ann
Purdy's son is in the U.S. Air
Force and was sent from a
Florida base to Haiti for
Search and Rescue. He
worked along side Israeli and
French personnel working on
the Montana Hotel and the
grocery store where we heard
such fantastic rescue stories.
Am sure the Purdy's had
some anxious moments but
so proud to have their son
working on this heroic mis-
sion. Praise God for our
troops all over the world for
their many selfless efforts on
our behalf.
Chuck and I attended and
thoroughly enjoyed the
Highlands Little Theater
play, "You Can't Take it With
You" last night. The play was
a comedy but Grandpa
offered some sage advice
about simplifying our
lifestyles. I heard similar
advise from Dr. Nancy on the
Today show this morning. We


surely are blessed as a nation
and tragedies like Haiti can
help us reflect on these
enrichments.
February birthdays
include: Wilma Burr, Gisela
Bukantis, Harold McKeen,
Betty Probst, Woo Lee, Leo
Boisvert, Dan Wolma, Joyce
Glassbrook, Daphne Rigel,
Bess Wyse, Marie Taylor,
Georgie Kreuser, Wanda

each one on their special day!

Man cannot live

by meat alone.


Surveys of eating
habits suggest that
men eat more meat
and far fewer fruits
and vegetables than
women do. Men
usually reach for
comfort foods that
are warm, hearty
and satisfying.
Men should be
eating better because
a bigger waistline
can hurt their heart
health. Is it possible
to eat healthy and
still get the satis-
faction of "man
food"? The answer
is yes.


American
Heart
Association
Products displaying the
heart-check mark meet
American Heart Association
food criteria for saturated
fat and cholesterol for
healthy people over age 2.
heartcheckmark.org


Balancing Act
When it comes to
making meat choices,
there are two words
to remember: moderation and lean.
Moderation: The American Heart Association
recommends eating no more than six ounces
of lean meat or fish each day. A three-ounce
cooked portion of meat is about the size of a
deck of cards. Here are some examples:
a 1/2 of a skinless chicken breast or a chicken
leg with thigh
3/4 cup of flaked fish


Shop smart!
Live well!,

Look for the
heart-check
mark!
All products bearing the
heart-check mark meet the
American Heart Association's
nutrition criteria per standard
serving size to be:
* Low in fat (3 grams or
less) -
* Low in saturated fat
(lta'm or less)
* Limited in transfat
(less than .5 grams)
* Low in cholesterol
(20 milligrams or less)
* Moderate in sodium, with
480, milligrams or less for
individual foods
* Contain at least 10 percent
of the Daily Value of one
or more of these naturally
occurring nutrients: protein,
vitamin A, vitamin C, calci-
um, iron or dietary fiber.
Also:
* Seafood, game meat, meat
and poultry, as well as
whole-grain products, main
dishes and meals must
meel additional nutritional
requirements.


Tex-Mex Chili Pie
Serves 4; 1 1/2 cups per serving
Perfect for wintry nights or while watching
sporting events, this hearty chili is accented
with crisp corn tortillas, fat-free cheddar
cheese and dollops of fat-free sour cream.
This recipe is worth repeating, so save time
now by making a double batch and storing
the leftover chili in an airtight container for
up to 6 months in the freezer.

Chili
1 pound extra-lean ground beef
1 15.5-ounce can no-salt-added black
beans, rinsed and drained
1 14.5-ounce can no-salt-added diced
tomatoes, undrained
1 8-ounce can no-salt-added tomato
sauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/2 medium yellow bell pepper,
chopped
1/2 medium green bell pepper, chopped


1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt-free all-purpose
seasoning blend
Tortillas
Cooking spray
4 6-inch corn tortillas
Toppings .
1/2 cup shredded fat-free cheddar
cheese
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
In large nonstick skillet, cook beef over
medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes, or until
browned, stirring frequently to turn and break
up. Using slotted spoon, transfer beef to 2-
to 3-quart slow cooker. Add remaining chili
ingredients to slow cooker, stirring to com-
bine. Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low
for 7 to 9 hours, or until onions and bell pep-
pers are tender and flavors have blended.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375F. Lightly
spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Using sharp knife, cut each tortilla into


8 triangles. Place in single layer on baking
sheet. Lightly spray tops with cooking
spray.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until chips
are golden brown and crisp. Transfer baking
sheet to cooling rack. Let chips cool for

Tips for Eating at Steakhouses
Can you eat steak on a heart-healthy diet? You bet. as
long as it's a reasonable portion of lean beef.
a Don't order king-sized cuts. About three ounces of
a thinly sliced cut is perfect, or choose a six-ounce
steak and enjoy non-meat entrees the rest of the day.
* Steakhouses generally prepare your food to order. so
ask to have all visible fat trimmed before the meat is
cooked.
* Many steakhouses do a superb job with seafood -
look for fish on the menu and ask your server about
the catch of the day. Research shows that eating oily
fish containing omega-3 fatty acids (e.g., salmon.
trout and herring) may help lower your risk of death
from coronary artery disease.
