By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Members of the
Highlands County School Board
unanimously approved the school
calendar for 2010-2011 Tuesday
night.
The goal of the board had been to
schedule only seven early release

to provide teachers enough time to
fulfill necessary paper work, meet.
professional development require-


ments, work on lesson plans and have
time to meet with parents, three addi-
tional early release days were added.

pointed out.
The year is divided into four nine
week sessions.

Audit of county-owned asphalt plant


points out 12 'significant' problems


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING An audit of
the county's asphalt plant
pointed out 12 findings
attributed to weak or missing
accounting practices.
The audit is dated Jan. 29,
but 'Clerk of Courts Bob
Germaine announced that it
would be available to the
public at the Feb. 2 commis-
sion meeting, and was down-
loadable on the Web site later
that day.
The report covered the
time frame from Oct. 2, 2008
until Sept. 30, 2009, and
addressed the policies and
controls for asphalt produc-
tion.
The Clerk's 12 negative
findings, which are consid-
ered to be "significant in
nature," spotlighted several
problems with the account-
ing procedures, including
underbilling.
According to the report,
the cost to produce the
asphalt was averaged at
$78.51 per ton, but the audit
pointed out that figure did
not include debt service nor
interest.
The report did not clarify
what the cost per ton would

Health Dept.
announces
third recall
of vaccine
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed baldridge@nedwssun .comn
SEBRING The
Highlands County Health
Department announced on
Wednesday that another
batch of H1N1 vaccina-
ti6ns are being recalled.
The' latest round : of
notices makes this the
third recall of since the
vaccines became avail-
able.
"Highlands County
Health Department has
been advised that the vac-
cine manufacturer, Sariofi
Pasteur, through part of
its quality assurance pro-
gram is voluntary recall-
ing five lots of H1N1
Vaccine in pediatric pre-
filled syringes and one lot
of adult' pre-filled
syringes," wrote Thomas
J. Moran, Project
Manager for the Health
Department.
"This is a non-safety-
related recall and there
are no safety concerns for
those who have received
this vaccine," Moran stat-
ed.
This is the second
recall of HIN1 vaccine
from Sanofi Pasteur.
MedImmune, another
manufacturer and distrib-
utor of the vaccines,
announced a recall back
in December as well.
According to Moran,
Sanofi Pasteur reported to
the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention
(CDC) and the Food and
Drug Administration
(FDA) that six lots of vac-
cine have been found
through additional rou-
tine, ongoing testing that
the antigen content or
potency was lower that a
pre-specified limit.
Moran further stated
that any unused vaccine
with these lot numbers
will be sent back.
But advised that any-
one that may have beeh
vaccinated with this lot
number will not need to
be revaccinated or have
any concerns about safety.
"No action from the
public is required as the
CDC and FDA agree that
the small decrease in anti-
gen content is unlikely to
result in a clinically sig-
nificant reduction in
immune response among
persons who have
received the vaccine,"
See RECALL, page 7A


have been with debt service
and interest included.
The audit further states
that the asphalt plant only
charged $68.98 per on to
Road and Bridge and other
vendors. A $9.53 per ton loss.
"Based upon the total tons
of asphalt produced and data
provided in the cost model, it
is reasonable to conclude that
a portion of the loss incurred
... was due to underbilling,"
the audit stated.
Conversely, the audit


pointed out that the 2008-09
bid rate for th'e purchase of
asphalt was at $85 per ton,
$6.49 per ton more expensive
than the arrived at production
cost of $78.51.
The financial reporting of
a negative cash balance for
the asphalt plant's Energy
and Recovery Fund (fund
420) was also noted by the
Clerk's Office.
For the 2007-08 fiscal
year, the plant booked a
$588,880 negative balance,

New school

bus depot site

LAKE PLACID Largely
because of advancing development
in the area of the current school dis-
trict bus depot roughly between
Lake Placid Middle School and
Lake Placid High School the
School board is looking for a new
location.
One piece of property under seri-
ous consideration turned out to have
been used as a dump site by the
town for some time.
For that reason, the boatd mem-
bers were told, city water would
have to be piped onto the site. The
risk for contamination was too great
to drill a well.
In addition, early engineering
studies show any building would
require a special foundation because
of the compacting refuse under-
neath.

SEBRING It was immediately
clear Tuesday night that the tightly

The school board joined the Board
of County Commissioners in naming
the joint fuel depot after him.
According to school board mem-
bers and Superintendent Wally Cox,
Sparks was a man greater than his
parts, much more than. a dedicated,,
innovative employee.
Both school board member Ned
Hancock and Cox called Sparks a

Florida's Oldest Dealer Becomes Newest Dealer


www.newssun.com


tAVON 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
the last decade, Wells Motor
Company has maintained
it's stability, faithfully
selling their product and
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 thatJeep,
'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

up to $999 on their vehicle
purchase.

right to choose to speak out
on any issue.
On Super Bowl Sunday,
Tebow reportedly will appear
in a commercial with his,
mother Pam, and he will dis-
cuss his birth.
Mom Tebow became seri-
ously ill on a mission trip
while she was pregnant with
Tim. '
Doctors advised her to
have an abortion, whidh mom
refused, and 'thus was born
one of the most, decorated
players in college history.
The 30-secbnd ad is being
bankrolled by Focus On The


Family, and has raised some
serious criticism.
The critics say that Tebow
and CBS, who has refused
such controversial ads in the
past, will be airing a strong
anti-abortion commercial.
Noted feminist Gloria
Allred wrote CBS and threat-
ened to file a complaint about
misleading ads if it is aired.
Those on the other side of
the issue applaud Tebow for
taking a stance on his strong
Christian beliefs, which
could possibly hurt his sports
career in this day and age.
Wait, let's put this whole
tail-gator event in perspec-
tive for a minute.
, Look back at Rosa Parks
and her refusal to move to the
back of the bus, or to
Muhammad Ali and his
refusal to join the draft, or
one small Chinese student in
front of those huge tanks, or


even Winston Churchill and
his fight to "Never Give Up."
If it was not for them
expressing their opinions,
and speaking out about them,
what kind of world would it
be today?
And yes, we at the News-
Sun would say the same thing
if Tebow was advocating a
pro-choice platform.
He has a right to shout his
beliefs at the height of televi-
sion viewing, and so does
Allred.
Regardless of his stance on
any issue, we find it ironic
that some of the same folks
who advocate the right to
choose do not advocate the
right to express an opinion
about it.
We are an advocate for
Tim Tebow's rights ... all of
them ... especially his free-
dom of speech.
But some groups find it
easier to stomach Donald
Trump losing an Oreo-licking
contest than an honest dis-
cussion. on important issues.
To them, all we can say is,.
"Hey, it's your right too."

Elwell would bring business,
experience to commission
Editor:
I was pleased to learn that Don
Elwell is running for county commis-
sioner from District 2. He is a degree
accountant with minors in management
and marketing.
The county is facing reductions in
revenues at a rate never experienced
before. Don will add business experi-
ence to the county commission at a
time when it's most needed.

Accountability is a nice
thing to see in Avon Park
Editor:
I'm happy to see that the Avon Park
City Council didn't lower the rental
fees of the T-hangars. I also applaud
Terry Heston*s question about what is
included in the rent. I'm hoping the air-
port manager is breaking these costs
out; the T-hangars should have some
sort of electrical metering so we know
we're making money or at least cover-
ing the costs of the T-hangars.
Somebody could easily run a heater or
air conditioner in a hangar and cost the
city very high electrical costs.
Let's get the airport manager and
finance director to provide monthly
profit and lose statements for the air-
port at the city council meetings.
Also include a profit and loss state-
ment for the Classic Caladium building
on a monthly basis. I would also rec-
ommend that the council be provided
with one for the last fiscal year. This is
the only way council members can see
what is being spent and if the city is in
the red on rentals.
There should be a monthly financial
statement provided to the council
showing if our money (yes, I use our
money, because it belongs to the tax-
payer, not city hall) is in the red or not.
Of course, the monthly financial state-
ment might be a month behind because
of bill paying. This shouldn't be that
hard, I was told that the city only cuts
checks once a month; I found this out


while waiting for a deposit return.

Reading the teabags
Editor:
Man has always been involved in
trying to foresee, to foretell the future.
The History ,Channel broadcasts the
predictions of Nostradamus. Tarot
cards, once favored by wizards are no
longer so regarded. Gypsies made read-
ing the tea leaves fashionable and the
phrase survives as a metaphor.
* Now, however, we are left with a
new device for future casts, the
teabags. Since reading the teabags is a
fairly new phenomena, we had not yet
built a body of expertise on the subject
but some feckless, if not foolhardy,
new casters are venturing into this
uncharted discipline.Teabag-based fore-
casts regarding the 2010 elections
abound.
Sarah Palin, still in pursuit of her
golden harvest, plans to charge the
teabaggers convention $115,000 for a
talking appearance, not that she has
much of value to say, but, hell, she can
usually draw a crowd.
It remains to be seen whether the
"Lipton lobby" will sell off enough
reservations at $550 a plate, to cover
the spread, but Sarah has read the
teabags. We'll see.

Court is the power to stop
fiasco
Editor:
We're split what's your view?
Supreme Court ruling on campaign
finance
Is "one man one vote" still in effect?
Corporations and unions "don't have
a votes" are for sale. What do corpora-
tions and unions want in return for
their donations to the parties?
We the people "all have a vote" are
for sale. What do "We the people" get
in return for our vote? Fifty percent
pay no income tax, 50 percent get some
sort of largess from the government.


(Welfare, food stamps, subsidies hous-
ing, farm subsides, and many more.)
The First Amendment gives us the
right to voice our opinion but it does
not give us the right to demand that the
government be our sugar daddy. If we
are a compassionate nation, then why
do we demand that the government take
over the responsibility that should be
that of the "We the people"
Why do we have a constitution? Is it
something to hang on the wall like a
picture? Or is it a blueprint for neigh-
bors to be neighborly and to keep the
government from interfering.
Our founding fathers established
three equal branches of government
and that each branch was to ride heard
on the other two. Who is going to stop
the fiasco that has penetrated the legis-
lation and administration. The only one
that can stop this fiasco is the judicial.

Clayton Auto Air did right
by customer
Editor:
My wife had a problem with the
blower motor for her heater-air condi-
tioning system in her car. We took it to
Clayton Auto Air in Avon Park. They
diagnosed the failure of the blower
motor itself, they ordered the part and
called us when it came in the next day.
We took the car to them for repairs.
They called a little later stating that
they had received the wrong part, but
that they had repaired the faulty motor
to work until the correct part arrived.
They did not ask for payment for the
work completed at that time; just bring
it back. They trusted us to do so.
They called a few days later stating
that the correct part was in. I took the
car back and they completed the repair
while I waited.
The bill was considerably less than
the original estimate. I would trust
them with any repair. They do accurate
and honest work.

p.m. Saturday is "The
Postman Always Rings
Twice."
Directed by Tay Garnett in
1946, the film is 113 min-
utes long.
In a nutshell, a handsome
'drifter, John Garfield, drops
into 4 roadside diner run by
and elderly and somewhat
dowdy Cecil Kellaway and
his wife, Lana Turner. The
wife plays up to the drifter,
who at first repels her, but,
after all, it is Lana Turner

guy's endurance. She has a
plan to kill her husband for
his insurance money. The
plan succeeds but evil
always merits comeuppance;
hence the title.
No rating.

Asphalt plant audit reveals accounting issues


Continued from page 1A
identify where the money had
come from to cover the nega-
ttive balances.
"The Energy Recovery
und owes another unidenti-
,fied county fund $1,153.,972.
At present, there is no loan or -
transfer documented and
terms of repayment have not
been established," the report
said.
Also reported was the
overstatement of how many
gallons of diesel fuel were
needed in the production of
one ton of asphalt, resulting
in an overstatement of sav-
ings related to the use of
landfill gas.
"Information provided to
'the Board Administration and
the Board indicated the use
of landfill gas resulted in a
79.2 percent decrease in
diesel fuel consumption.
Solid Waste Management
indicated that prior to the uti-
lization of landfill gas, the
County produced asphalt and
used 6.26 gallons of diesel
fuel per ton. Management
noted that after the installa-
tion of the landfill gas, diesel
consumption decreased from
6.26 to 1.30 gallons per ton,
and that this was a direct
result of landfill gas. Internal
Audit reviewed the method-
ology used and noted several
concerns in the calculation,"
the report stated.
"After reviewing the cal-
culations, the auditors con-
cluded that production only
used 2.52 gallons per ton and
landfill gas was at 1.14 gal-
lons per ton."
Despite the problems
described the in the report,
County Solid Waste Director
Ken Wheeler, who also over-
sees the asphalt operations,
remained optimistic about
the endeavor.
"As Mr. (County
Administrator Michael)
Wright pointed out, there was
a learning curve. We used
extra fuel at the start up not
associated. with production,
and frankly, we had some
incidents out here that we
were not counting on," said
Wheeler.
Wheeler stated that the
purpose for the plant was to
have asphalt available when
it was needed by the Road
and Bridge Department, not
necessarily to save the coun-

Solid Waste Director Ken Wheeler said the original intention of the county-owned asphalt
plant 'was to get the product when it was needed, and somewhere along the line the objec-
tive became to save money. I am not sure when cost savings became the objective, but it
did.' ..

ty money off of the cost of
the asphalt purchases.
"Our original intention
was to get the product when
it was needed, and some-
where along the line the
objective became to save
money. I am not sure when
cost savings became the
objective, but it did,"
Wheeler said.
The audit noted that the
price for asphalt from an out-
side vendor is estimated at
$75 per ton this fiscal year
from an outside vendor, and
Wheeler stated that the cost
for production will remain
higher because of more prob-
lems that occurred since the
audit.
Additional costs to the per
ton estimates for.the 2009-10
fiscal year will include the
clean up of a large diesel spill
and a sheriff's report of miss-
. ing diesel fuel.
"We spent over $53,000 on
something that should not


have happened. Once
factor in the engine
fees, the personnel, e
ment, and landfill dis
fee, the diesel spill co
over $53,000. That is
to affect our costs this

expenses would be fo

A final item mention
both Wheeler and the
that will continue to

methane, which is zero
now.
Commissioners appi
the purchase of the pla
September of 2008 wit
intent of supplementing
cost of diesel to run the

by the landfill.
Wheeler stated that


ed1 valves that control the land-
fill gas are not currently
ited working.
ad Wheeler said that in
November it was noted that
re that the valves are not stain-
less steel; as the installation
specifications called for, and
rusted shut.
"It is going to cost us about
$6,000 .per valve to purchase
new ones. The manufacturer
you installed regular iron valves
ering instead of stainless steel. The
quip, gas produced by the landfill
posal has corroded the valves and
)st us we can't open them,"
going Wheeler stated. "We are
year," working with Gencor to get
them replaced, and should
was have that done this month."

He added that a way had

The principal of

that follow-up to training

"It is important that
teachers not be just sitting

facilities said, "I am con-
cerned about what could be
stored at the site. We don't
know what all is out there.
The county required it to be
closed. It would need an
environmental study."
District personnel will
continue looking for a suit-
able site that fits the district's
special needs and budget. A
minimum of six acres is
needed.
The correct spot for the
depot has to be chosen care-
fully, the board was told, as it
will impact neighborhood
roads by creating large traffic
flows during school days as
buses leave on their runs and
return back. Buses taking stu-
dents to extracurricular
events would run after school
hours, often at night or on a
weekend. ...
In order to be efficient, the'
depot must be in the general
area of county roads 621 and
619.
The school board will be
advertising specifics and ask-
ing for offers.

Kyle Jackson connects for a two-run double in the first inning of SFCC's 8-4 win over
Seminole Wednesday night.


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK Though
they had the abilities of four
major leaguers in attendance,
former SFCC Panthers
Darren Clarke, Ryan Raburn,
Jesse Litsch and Chris Waters
weren't necessarily needed as
the current South Florida
squad showed plenty of abili-
"ty in breaking open a tight
contest for an 8-4 win over
visiting Seminole Wednesday
night.
On hand for a pre- SF
game jersey retirement
ceremony, the quartet |
of major leaguers
watched the Panthers S
jump out to a 3-0 lead
with Kyle Jackson
powering a two-run
double to the right-field wall.
The Raiders, however,
struck back quickly, staging a,
three-run, two-out rally in the
top Of the second off South
Florida starter Matt Schurig.
"He's a location pitcher
and he was having a little
trouble with his location
tonight," head coach Rick
Hitt said. "But he worked
through and gave us a quality
five innings."
With Schurig battling
through, the Panthers got the
lead back with a run in the


s

second as Brandon Kirby
drove in Karson Kravec, but
other chances to break the
game open were missed.
In the fourth, South
Florida had runners on first
and second with nobody out
when a sacrifice bunt was
popped up enough to freeze
the runners..
It dropped and, with the
Panther runners momentarily
stopped in their tracks, the
Seminole catcher snapped it
up and threw to third
CC to start a 2-5-4 double
play.
The Raiders then
tied it in the sixth with
C Max Figueroa blast-
I ing a full-count homer
to right to lead off the
inning against SFCC
reliever Michael Dixon.
Like Schurig, however,
Dixon quickly settled in and
worked through the eighth
without any further damage.
"He's really doing a job for
us," Hitt said. "He's now got
two wins in relief, and he's
not inhereting wins where he
just comes in at the right
time. He's coming in, pitch-
ing well and earning the
wins."
Into the eighth, with it still
tied 4-4, the Panthers put

Sebring sees two scholarship signees

Toney opts for

Bethune-Cookman


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING A virtually
last-minute visit changed
Tevin Toney's mind as the
Sebring senior chose to stay
in state and pursue his foot-
ball and academic career at
Bethune-Cookman
University in Daytona Beach
of the Mid-Eastern Athletic
Conference.
"I had committed to
Alabama A&M," Toney said
after signing on the dotted
line to play for the Wildcats
on national signing day
Wednesday morning. "But
Bethune called again and I
went out for a visit last
weekend. Their new coach
(Brian Jenkins) was really
social, made me feel special
and that he was really inter-


ested in me overall. It felt
real comfortable."
And so Toney, takes-.the
next step as he pursues his
dream of a career in football.
"I've been dreaming about
it and working hard since
seventh grade," he said. "I
know I've got to get bigger
and stronger, but I'll do what
it takes. I'd love to have a
chance to get to the NFL, but
I know to haye backup plans
and will be studying busi-
ness administration so I can,
have thait4 fall back on."
The har&dwork, in all
facets, is something that
there is little to worry about
with Toney.
"I wish we could recruit
him back for another two
years," Sebring head coach
Jared Hamlin joked before

Bauer running to South Florida


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING The face of
Blue Streak cross country
during his four years at
Sebring, Connor Bauer,
decided to take a run at the
University of South Florida
when he decided to sign a
letter of intent on Thursday
morning at the high school.
Sitting amongst family,
coaches, and friends, Bauer
inked the document that
would lead him up the road
to one of the state's more
popular educational institu-


tions where he'll move right
into his chosen field of study
as well as compete with the
Bulls in the Big East
Conference.
"I'll be staying with the
engineers on campus," Buaer
said when he was asked if he
would live on campus.
"I have been accepted to
the School of Engineering,
and I get to run too," said the
excited Streak.
"I am going to miss him
for sure," said Sebring head
coach Jeff Shoemaker. "He is
a real athlete. To have your


best performance at the
toughest of times, that is a
winner," Shoemaker said
about Bauer's performance
when the young runner
clocked his best time of the
year at the State competition.
"I felt it was the best
choice for me," Bauer said
about USF. "I will get a lot of
individual attention there,
and I will get to run there."
"It's a good fit for him. At
USF he won't be a big fish in
a small pond, or vice-versa,"
Shoemaker added.

Seminole Tire rolls again in LP Seniors


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Seminole Tire team blasted
out a 26-18 victory over the
Lake Placid Marine team in
Lake Placid Senior Softball
League play on a cloudy and
cool day on Wednesday, Feb.
3, at the Lake June ball
fields.
Some early scoring was
aided by defensive errors, but
then the Tiremen played long
ball with three home runs and
three triples among their 26
hits.
Ken Morgan led the way at
the plate for the Seminole
team, going 4-for-4 with two
blasts over the fence, fol-
lowed by Richard Rivera at
4-for-4, including a home run
and double, and Jim Radcliff,
Tom Giownik, Ross
Anderson and Paul
Stephenson chipping in three
hits each for their team with
Radcliff and Giownik each
having two doubles and a
triple among their hits and
Anderson having a double.
The Lake Placid Marine
team bats were not silent as
they smacked out 30 hits but,
once'again, left a lot of ducks
on the pond.
Bill Gallager led the way
for the team going 4-for-4
with two doubles and Gary
Tankersley, Fred Cooper, Jess
Hathaway, Duke Hensley,
Bob Sheets and Jeff Stanley
had three hits each with one
of Stanley's hits being a


triple and two of Cooper's
and one of Hensley's hits
being doubles.
On the other field, the
Yates Insurance team rallied
in the last two innings to
score a 23-14 win over the
Central Security team.
Central Security led by
two runs going into the last
two innings, but the Yates
bats came alive and they
played good defense with a
game-ending catch by John
Buja on a hard line drive to
the fence by power hitter
Dave Reed.
The two men on base did
not think the ball could be
caught and Buja was able to
double Tom Walsh off of sec-
ond base to end the game.
Buja also continued his hot
bat with two doubles and a
home run while teammate
Cal Bready had a four-hit day
including a double.
Jim Morgan, Barry
Hurlbut, Rod Palmer and Bob
Weiss had three hits each
with Palmer delivering a
three-bagger, Hurlbut a dou-
ble and Morgan two doubles
in addition to his continued
strong play at short stop for
the Insurers.
The Central Security team
had several players absent,
but still put up a good fight
with good defensive play in
the outfield by Larry Lane,
who also had a good day at
the plate with three hits,


including a home run.
Ken Ferano, Bran Pluta,
Dave Read and Tom Walsh
also had three-hit days.
Reed had a home run in
addition to being "robbed" by
Buja, and Dana Hurlbut had a
pair of two-baggers in the
losing effort.
The third game of the day
saw the Lockhart Service
team pull off their second
win of the season with a 13-
11 triumph over the


Schooni's Restaurant team.
The pitching of Dick
Harmick and George Quay
combined to limit, the
Schooni's team to a total of
14 hits for the game.
For the Lockhart offense,
Harmick, Doran Quigg and
Fred Moore had three hits
each and Dusty Hensley had
a triple and home run driving
in five runs.
He also made an outstand-
ing catch near the fence. Ron


Hanish also continued his
strong defensive play at the
"hot" corner for the Lockhart
team.
The Schooni's team was
led at.the plate by Roy Oke
with a double and fence
clearing home run with Hugh
Grimaldi and Todd Martin
also managing two hits each.
Also, Don Cunningham
used his speed to score an
inside-the-park home run and
Harvey Jones had a three-


bagger for the Schooni's
team.
The Seminole Tire team
continues to lead the league
with a 'record of 6-1, fol-
lowed closely by Yates at 6-
2.
Schooni's is now 4-3 on
the season, with Central
Security and Lockhart at 2-5
and Lake Placid Marine now
in last place at 2-6.
League Play continues
through March.

Rutgers last season and
seven seasons with
Louisiana-Lafayette.
And this comment made
by University President Dr.
Trudie Kibbe Reed upon
Jenkins hiring, perhaps,
sums up what Toney felt
upon his visit and meeting
with Jenkins.
"In your interview," Dr.
Reed said. "You conveyed
that the most compelling
aspect of your coaching
philosophy is your commit-
ment to thenurturing, well-
being and development of
our young athletes, off the
field as well as on the field.
You commitment to strong
values, morals and ethics
will. mold these young men


cooking
into the types of students
envisioned by our founder,
Dr. Mary McLeod
Bethune."
That was important to
Toney's grandmother Mary
Toney and mother Tasha
Hunter, with another aspect
also adding to the benefit
of Bethune-Cookman.
"I'm very excited that
he'll be close to home,".
Hunter said. "We had hopes
in any case, but when
(Bethune-Cookman) called,
I said 'thank God.' He'll be
just two-and-a-half hours
away."
An aspect of the decision
that Toney is also happy
about.
"I plan to be there and
get known in the communi-
ty," he said. "But I know
I'll miss my mom's cook-
ing and if I get homesick,
I'm close enough to get
back."

Devils face top-seed Tenoroc in District Semifinal


Continued from 1B
Daley said.
Lady Devil Markida
Hawthorne led -the scoring
drive for Avon Park by cap-
ping 20 points in the Dragon
match-up.
Hawthorne was followed
by Johntavia Perry and
Brekayla English, who each
contributed 14 points during
the game. '
But according to Daley, the
real district test is coming
when Avon Park faces district
leader Tenoroc tonight.
"We hope to get the job
done, on Friday," Daley said
afterward. "We are going to
get in the gym tomorrow and
work on Tenoroc for Friday.
Their newspaper already
picked them to win this, but
no matter what they think, we
are going to come out here
and we are not going to back
down."
Avon Park split the season
series with the Lady Titans,


losing a close one on the road
in the season's early weeks,
52-47, on Dec. 8, and defeat-
ing them by a resounding 50-
35 in the Red Devil Gym on
Jan. 19.
But the test comes down to
who wants it more in the dis-
trict, according to Daley.
"This is going to be inter-
esting, and it could go either
way.," she said. "We beat
them at home. They do have
home cooking, but nonethe-
less, we are not going to back
down.
"You have to be prepared
for this. This is what basket-
ball is about, and why you
want to play basketball," she
added. "The challenge is
there, and that's what. you
want to face. And Friday
night we face that chal-
lenge."
The game starts tonight in
Tenoroc at 7:30 p.m, see
Sunday's News-Sun for the
game result and story.

together the clinching rally.
Jackson got it started with
a ringing double to right
center.
Brett Clements followed
with an RBI single and
moved to second as the
throw home got away.
He came in to score on
Brad Harrison's single and
the bases were soon loaded
on an infield single from
Ethan Lovell and a blooped
base-knock from Kirby.
Greg Smith then followed
with a shot up the middle to


bring in two more insurance
runs.
It looked like those might
be needed as hard-throwing
closer Andres Lopez was a
little too hard-charging.
"He's one of those guys
that's sitting in the dugout
just pacing and waiting to
get in," Hitt said. "It's early
in the season and we still
have to work on calming the
nerves a little bit."
In the classic form of a
Mitch "Wild Thing"
Williams-type outing, Lopez
walked his first batter,


n eighth
struck out the next and
plunked the third.
Another strike out. fol-
lowed, but then so did
another walk to load the
bases and bring the tying run
to the plate in the form of
clean-up hitter Alex-Hudak.
But like Williams, in one
of his good outings, Lopez
came through with a two-
strike, vapor-trail fastball
the Hudak couldn't catch up
with to close out the contest.
"This was a fun game,
tied going into the late
innings," Hitt said. "These


to go 4-0
kind of games early in the
year, you get to see how
your guys are going to
respond, and we saw them
come out in the bottom of
the eighth and do the job."
They've been doing the
job thus far, now at 4-0 in
the early going, and will
need to continue this week-
end with a game today at the,
College of Central Florida in
Ocala before heading to
Gainesville fdr a Saturday
doubleheader with defend-
ing national runner-up Sante
Fe College.

The difference between lust and love


It never ceases to humor
me, as I walk through
Walmart immediately after
Christmas, to find the next
great holiday products
advertised. Yes, I am talking
about Valentine's Day. Now,
'as a married man, I had bet-
;ter not forget this important
.date on the calendar. But I
,wonder just how many peo-
ple really understand what
love is all about?
Recently, I have been
preaching through the book
of I Corinthians on Sunday
evenings. Currently, we are
learning about the chapter on
charity. I Corinthians 13 tells
us the greatness of charity,
its characteristics, and its
enduring qualities. When we
understand the God of love,
and what he says on the sub-'
ject, we learn that this world
has a great misunderstanding
of what true love is all
about. Genuine love is a rare
commodity.
In the first three verses,
we find that charity, which is
benevolence or love, excels
all gifts. In fact, anything
you seek to do in the name
of the Lord without love
profits nothing. It is impor-
tant that we understand how
to love the way God intends
for us.
In verse 4, we find how
our charity affects others.
True love "suffereth long,
and is kind." This requires
patience: not running over
others or demanding them to
get out of your way. There is
a sweet spirit in the way you
help others. Real love "envi-
eth not." This means you are
content with what God has
given you; not covetous over
what others have. Love
"vaunteth not itself, is not
puffed up." There is humility
portrayed in the life of
someone who truly loves


God and
others.
S They
don't
draw
Sc attention
to them-
io selves,
Timeless but rather
seek to
Treasure praise
Luke others
Knickerbocker around
them.
In the next verse, we dis-
cover charity's affect on our
behavior. True love "doth
not behave itself unseemly."
This means we must not
have self-control and not
overreact to insignificant
problems. True love "seeketh
not her own." A person who
really understands love is
not motivated by self-gratifi-
cation. .
We have a whole genera-
tion that is led to believe
that if they see something
they want, take it as though
they were obligated to have
it. This includes areas of
food, clothing, cars and even
relationships. How many
guys haVe lied to a girl, say-
ing, "If you really loved me,
you would do such and such
for me." This is lust. Lust
demands for someone else to
give, so I can be happy.
Love is the opposite. It
gives to help better others. I
tell our young people, if a
guy says he loves a girl, he
will respect her by keeping
his hands off her. Then he
will get the permission of
her parents to pursue a rela-
tionship, and in time, prove
his love for her by buying a
ring for her. True love
involves commitment, "Til
death do us part."
Commitment, now that's
another lost word in our
vocabulary!


Lastly, I wish to mention
that true love "is not easily
provoked." For a long-termn
marital commitment to
remain strong, forbearance
and forgiveness must be
present. To forbear simply
means "to put up with." Yes,
there are some petty quirks
we must learn to live with.
Remember, it goes both
ways! To genuinely forgive
your spouse when they do
wrong means to not bring it
up again. Simply put, don't
keep score. Leave the past
behind.
True love "thinketh no
evil." Trust is necessary for
a relationship to work. When
you love someone, you think
the best of them. You do not
look for areas of suspicion
and should rumors come,
you give them the benefit of
the doubt until proven other-
wise.
I pray this Valentine's
Day, you will understand
what love is all about as you
come to know the God of
love, commit your life to
Him, and trust Him with all
your heart.

The game v.fhe gab


Got a group focused

on the gridiron and

Another gathered '

around the food?

Here are some tips for

finding middle ground

at your Super Bowl bash.
By BECKY SHER
McClatchy-Tribune

Whether you're a true-blue football fan
who's wrapped up in every two-
point conversion or just another
American enjoying too much food
and too many outlandish com-
mercials, chances are, you'll m
be at a,Super Bowl party this
year. Maybe it's an over-the-top blowout, or
maybe it's a few friends with pizza and beer.
But the game is on, no doubt about it.
For the hosts of those Super Bowl
soirees, however, there lurks a challenge:-
How to throw party everyone can get into.N
Because let's face it, not everyone is all
about the game. The Super Bowl has mor-
phed from merely an awesome display of
athletic acumen to a cultural touchstone.
You can enjoy the broadcast (if not the '
actual game) without the faintest idea what
a nickel defense is. 4 .


So how do you host a
friends for six (or more)
food and festivity? Start


GAUGE THE CROWD
(HONESTLY)
Consider your guests: Are the
football fans the type who won't
tolerate any non-game talk while
there is action on the field? Are
any of your guests diehard fans of
the two teams? Are the non-fans so
uninterested in football they could-
n't even pick Tony Romo or Tom
Brady out of a lineup? (Well,
maybe not the best examples since
everyone knows Romo was one of,
Jessica Simpson's latest beaus and
isn't supermodel Gisele married to
some guy named Brady? Anyway
...) Answers to these questions will
determine how concerned you need
to be about providing separate
space for guests who aren't
focused on the game. And then ...
REARRANGE
THE ROOM
Look at your space and deter-
mine how you can set aside a sep-
arate area for guests who won't
be glued to the tube. What about


disparate group of
hours of football,
with these tips:


ILLUSTRATIONS BY CHRIS WARE/LEXINGTON HERALD-LEADER/MCT


a card table with a 1,000-piece
puzzle? (Yes, it sounds a bit
"Brady Bunch," but seriously,
have you ever seen anyone walk
past a puzzle-in-progress without
trying to put in at least one
piece?) Set out some board games
or playing cards. At the very
least, cluster a few chairs in a
spot where guests can chat with-
out screaming to be heard over
the sideline commentators.

PLAN SOME
DIY FOOD
It's not that the guests watch-
ing the game don't want to eat.
They most certainly do. But they
don't want to work for it. For
those focused on the field, keep
the snacks easy to eat, easy to
reach and plentiful. It's not to,
say you can't conduct culinary
experiments on Super Bowl
Sunday, but honestly, most peo-
ple expect you to color within
the lines of traditional party food
- chips and dip, guacamole,


chicken wings, chili, pizza.
But for guests who aren't
catching every first down, consid-
er offering food that doubles as an
activity: top-your-own pizzas,
fondue or a taco bar. Plan a cool
cocktail or two that guests can
mix themselves. Or put out the
fixings'for smoothies, milkshakes
or sundaes. (Sure to be a hit if
there are kids at your party, but
skip the blender drinks if the
kitchen is-close to the TV.) Game-
watching guests can help them-
selves between plays.
ENCOURAGE
INTERACTIVITY,
Even friends who would never
watch a regular-season football
game might be convinced to catch
a few plays during the Super"
Bowl, if you can find a way to
make it interesting for them. Try
Super Bowl bingo a twist on
the basic game that asks players
to watch for events on (and off)
the field. Football fan Scott


Canoni has created and shared his
own version on his Web site:
http://scottcanoni.com/llinks/
SuperBowlBingo.php. The
cards contain events you're likely
to see during the game (injury
timeout,,pass interference) in, the
familiar bingo grid. By refreshing
the page on '
Canoni's site,
you'll get differ-
ent configura-
tions so everyone
gets a unique
card. Be sure to
t have a prize on
hand for the win-
Coleman ner(s).
But wait!
Canoni hasn't forgotten non-fans.
He also has cards for Super Bowl
commercial bingo, featuring all
the things you're likely to see
during the game's ad breaks' a
truck commercial, a pizza deliv-
ery guy, a talking animal, Gary
Coleman. Find the cards at http:
l//scottcanoni.com/links/Super


BowlCommercialBingo.php.

Bowl-themed bingo cards, visit

CONSIDER
A CO-HOST
Maybe you're hosting a Super
Bowl party because you are a
diehard fan. And if that's the '
case, maybe all your guests are
gridiron lovers too. But if that's
not the case, find a co-host who's
not so into the game to help cater
to the needs of other guests who
aren't intent on gameplay. Make
a deal you do all the pre-game
planning, shopping and food
prep, and once the game starts,
he or she is in charge of refilling
the dips and chips, fetching
drinks and taking the nachos out
of the oven. Just'be sure the
workload is evenly distributed. If
it's your house, you're still the
host, so you can't shirk your
duties entirely.
