AP gets help with U.S. 27 widening

DOT financial aid helps ease burden on city budget


By ED BALDRIDGE

AVON PARK -- Avon Park got
financial help from the
Department of Transportation to
pay its part of the expansion of
U.S. 27, during a wQrkshop on
Monday night..
The city originally voted on
Oct. 26 to not fund the project,
citing a lack of budgeted funds
because of the economy.


The project will expand U.S. 27
to six lanes from Lake Isis Avenue
north to County Line Road, Avon
Park will share $150,000 of the
cost of the $1.2 million project
funded by stimulus money.
According to an e-mail from
Jerrold R. Whitt with the DO, a
second round of funding made the
project a go, but caught Avon park,
off guard.
"We have another round of


Economic Stimulus projects, and
the above project (widening U.S.
27) is #2 on that list. It is my
understanding that the city is
experiencing economic hardship,
where it cannot fund the reloca-
tions required to allow construc-
tion of this project,." Whitt wrote.
At the meeting, Whitt made it
clear that the help to move the

Dr. Ostling is' best
remembered for the com-

ered from 1955-87. He
served the community for
more than 30 years, and in
many cases, attended to the
medical needs of four gen-
erations of area families -

time to mentor a number of
local physicians and regis-
tered nurses to the medical
profession.
Guests at the reception
included a number of physi-
cians who had worked for
Dr. Ostling as well as many
patients and friends. The


guests had the opportunity
to chat with Dr. Ostling's
wife, Markine, and his
daughter, Tam, who
recounted how Dr. Ostling
set up his early practice and
their memories of family
life of a pioneering
Highlands County physi-
cian.
Michele Heston, the
director of Nursing at South
Florida Community
College, recalled the
encouragement Dr. Ostling
had given her and the influ-
ence he had on her life.
Several nurses and staff
members who had worked
in his practice told of Dr.
Ostling's impact on their
professional and personal
lives.
Good Shepherd Hospice
Regional Director Becky
McIntyre presented an
overview of Good
Shepherd Hospice, one of
the community programs
Dr. Ostling supported in his
life. She felt that Dr.
Ostling would be proud to
know hospice care was
growing in Highlands
County to better serve the
community with the con-
struction of the Good
Shepherd Hospice Somers
Hospice House on
Hammock Road in Sebring.

tion on how you can be a

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


McCollum needs to open the party's books


What's good for the goose is good
for the gander, and government,
including the political parties,
should be transparent to those they serve.


No hidden agendas; no
abuse of the party money; no
dealings without sunshine.
Attorney General Bill
McCollum is running for
office, and has built his cam-
paign around transparency in
government.
He has made great strides
in helping Florida become a
leader in open government.'
He has worked diligently in.
providing the materials to
educate the public, with
training seminars, with books.
and Web sites.
Recently, a debate has aris-
en that asks the party to open
its books to the public, or in
this case, the credit card'
records, to let the public
know who their leaders are.-


But the McCullom camp
says those party records are
private, not public.
SThe debate about those
records goes deeper than a
few dollars spent on haircuts.
It now involves that very
transparency that McCullom
has called for as Attorney
General.'
But the champion for sun-
shine in government has
given tip the dream that has
stirred the hearts and hopes
of millions not only in
Florida, but all across the
United States.
McCullom drew the line at
transparency in government
at the party door.
He has publicly stated that
the finances that are in


debate, the party's finances,
are not for the review of the
common man. It's none of
our business because it's
party business, so to speak.'
As if the common man is
only to pull the lever for a
party no longer representing
the people who vote for
them.
The common man is to
ignore the doings behind that
curtain, and the great and
powerful Oz will tell you
what to believe.
The party has become
more important than the
voter.
What is McCullom afraid
of? Is he afraid that the pub-
lic will be upset with the
extravagant spending in a
time when 10 percent of
Floridians are looking for a
job?
Is he afraid that even
worse atrocities than $3,000
lunches on the party dime


will not endear the 14 percent
of Floridians going hungry?
How many poor voters
have to have their water and
electricity cut off or their
house foreclosed before those
running for power realize
that we are out here, and we
are not happy about wasteful
spending?
How many seniors have to
hope, that they now have
enough to have any kind of
life for their golden years
before' our government
becomes transparent to the
rotten core?
If the finances of our lead-
ers are above reproach, or not
for the public view, then how
are we to set our feet solidly
through all the muddy poli-
tics?
Transparency in govern-
ment has to be clear to the
very bottom, or top in this
case, and the back-door deal-
ings and extravagant spend-

Every aspect of our leader-

Is it what we really
want or need?
Editor:
In listening in ona town hall meet-
'ing, though I didn't speak, I did enjoy
'the discussion. Ambassador John
'Bolton was the emcee, in response to,
a question concerning immigration he
compared our population to that of
China. I don't think of any of us want
our population to be like that of
China.
I think it is essential to good health
to have a balance in nature; also, I
'can't see why anyone can deny the
exuberant cost we have endured with
'this immigration problem. Having to
print all these legal documents in the
language of each, furnishing an inter-
'preter when on can't speak English,
extra cost in the school system, giving
them reduced college tuition and the
List goes on. They have been given
many advantages the rest of us have
not had.
Our country has always believed in
being self reliant, raising the food we
ate, having factories that made our
clothes, automobiles, and everything
else we use as much as possible.
That's why we don't have jobs.
This Super Highway to bring in
cheap goods is not for our benefit and
it's not cheap anyway. Nafta and
absorbing Canada and, Mexico into our
country is not only a mistake; it will
be disastrous for the American people.
The little lady who had the long list
in the meeting was right on target. She
expressed the views of most of us.
Immigration is all right, if it's kept to
the number we can absorb and if they
are coming to be an American, but not
to change America.
Of course, these unions need elimi-
nating. That's why everything kept
going up to the point the employer
had to raise prices to cover the, cost to
stay in business and eventually had to
go out of business because of the high
cost of labor. Everyone is entitled to a
decent wage, but as my dad used to
say, we have to live and let live. As a
result, now, people don't have jobs
and our president's solution is like
putting a band aid on an amputated
limb.
We are just adding to the problem,.
We all need help from time to time,
but we cannot depend on the govern-
ment indefinently as a way of life. We
will never have meaningful employ-
ment for our people as long as we are
depending on foreign goods for the
'necessities of life.
In all honesty, I feel we have
brought some of this on ourselves. We
had gotten so caught up in money, we
have neglected the most important
things. Teaching our children and
making a loving home, having hot
meal together where we sit down as a
family, is one of God's highest call-
ings, Children have not been taught
right from wrong. The prisons are
overflowing. Illegitimacy is at an all
time high and is considered acceptable
with no consequences.
The government has taken over the
responsibility of what God command-
ed parents to do. We cannot shift our
responsibility over to anyone else.
They don't know how to teach their
children because they were not taught.
We can't give another something we
don't have. There will be conse-
quences. God will not continue to tol-
erate what is going on here. He has
destroyed nations before and He can
do it again, but there is hope. II

Chronicles 7:14: "If my people who
are called .by my name will humble
themselves, seek my face and turn
from their wicked ways, I will hear
from heaven, forgive their sins and
heal their land."
We can't substitute time with chil-
dren, a loving home, time to listen and
hot regular meals as a family for any-
thing money can buy. It is essential to
find time to share the Bible with our
children, teach them that it is God's
Holy Word that has all the answers to
our problems, that it is a book of
instruction for us to live by. He gives
us two options: There are only two
places to go when we leave this
world; we make the choice. Romans
10:9 tells us "IF we confess with our
mouth and believe in our heart that
God raised Jesus Christ from the dead,
we shall be saved."
There is a heaven and a hell; one is
a place of peace and beauty, the other
a place of torment. I don't want any
part of the latter.

Politicians make expensive
speeches, what's new?
Editor:
In a recent letter in your paper, one
of your most opinionated writers
couldn't help himself, I guess, and
decided to jump on the attack-Sarah
Palin-bandwagon. I can't, for the life
of me, figure out what he, and so
many other liberals, is afraid of. Just
the mention of her name brings these
folks out from under rocks to spew
their venom and hatred.
The more interesting point, though,
is the fact that he was attempting to
stir up some kind of controversy
regarding the fee Sarah Palin is set to
receive for speaking at the upcoming
"teabaggers" convention.
Well, sir, let me put things in per-
spective for you with just two exam-
ples. You may have heard of former
president Bill Clinton who, I'm sure
according to you, would have "some-
thing of value to say." (I beg to differ,
but that's a topic for another day.)
According to the Wall Street Journal,
in 2007 alone, he "earned" in excess
of $10 million in speaking fees. On


*A

.aa. - a


May 23, 2007, he raked in $615,000
for two speeches given in Stockholm
and Oslo. For a speech given in
London to a company called AEG, he
was paid $425,000.
My second example is former Vice
President Al Gore. Reportedly,,he is
now a billionaire. How did he make
his billions you ask? Well, he made
his billions by peddling a lie and pur-
posely deceiving people with this
whole global warming hoax. With no
conclusive proof, support from high
profile Hollywood-types, and the main
stream media unwilling to confront or
challenge anything he says, he has
made a fortune.
Now, unlike you, I could care less
how much money Bill Clinton is paid
for his speeches or how many more
people foolishly part with their money
and lifestyle because of "global warm-
ing." In fact, more power to him. I
daresay that if someone offered me
$425,000 to speak, I would gladly
accept it with no shame or embarrass-
ment. What I can't figure out, though,
is why you feel the need to attack
Sarah Palin?
Oh, I got it. Sarah Palin is the sub-
ject in the first of a series of letters
you are going to write about politi-
cians making lots of money giving
speeches, right? That's got to be it!

Need to take this country
into Reagan mold
Editor:
Open letter to Sarah Palin:
My wife and I (of 57 years) are fans
of yours. We believe, with you, that
we need to take this country into the
Ronald Reagan mold!
1. His exceedingly strong defense.
2. Lower taxes and stop the wild
spending that is saddling our grand
and great-grandchildren with debt. I
believe they will never be able to
repay it and enjoy the fruits of their
labor, as this generation has.
3. Drill for oil offshore, wherever it
can be found, plus coal and nuclear
power.

Rotary Club's 12/24
Bicycle Race begins
SEBRING More than
200 participants are expect-

International 12/24 Bicycle
Race sponsored by the
Highlands County Rotary
Club. Most of the 24-hour
racers are trying to qualify
to participate in the RAAM
the Race Across AMerica,
which begins in Seattle and
ends in Washington, D.C.
The riders begin the race
at the Sebring International
Raceway at safe light on
Saturday. They ride three
laps around the race track
to warm up. As they leave
the airport area, the
Highlands County Sheriffs'
officers hold back the traf-
fic at the main exit roads.
They then head out toward
Sebring where the city
police man intersections to
allow them safe passage
through downtown. The
longest part of the race then
begins as the riders head for
Frostproof. Rotarians and
volunteers man a check
point at Lake Reedy where
the riders are offered fruit
and drinks.
The racers begin return-
ing to the airport about sun-
down. For the 12-hour rid-
ers, the race is over. But the
24-hour riders continue
onto the raceway for anoth-
er 12 hours. Several hand-
cyclists have entered our
races. In 2007 a rider from
Lake Placid set the world
record for hand-cyclists and
earned a place in the
Guinness Book of World
Records. Last year, a rider
with a team of hand-cyclists
. from Germany broke his


record by hand-cycling 403.
miles and his cycle is now
on display in a museum
there. That team also
entered the RAAM and is
reported to have done very
well. They are considered
national heroes in Germany.'

minutes in length.
Presenting the charming
side of insanity this movie.
results in a powerful anti-
war statement, something
'perhaps we can't be
reminded of too often
today. During World War I,
a Scottish private is sent to
a country town in France
that the enemy has aban-
doned and left wired to be
blown up. The permanent
residents have all left, but
the local asylum's inhabi-
tants are loose to act out
their fantasies. The private
is elected by the bewildered
new residents of the town to
be their king. His first
dilemma is whether to join
the-benign crazies or
accomplish his mission. The'
film stars Alan Bates and a
very:young Genevieve
Bujold. No rating.

Avon Park gets help from DOT


Continued from page 1A
utilities was already partially
paid for by Avon Park some
time ago, and that the origi-
nal estimate of over $189,000
would be lowered to
$150,000, which could be
paid back over time on a low-
interest promissory note.
S"The city had already
expended $23,151 in engi-
neering fees between 2003
and 2006 for the relocation of
utilities associated -with the


project, the DOT will pay the
balance of the fees associated
with this project," Whitt said.
Whitt estimated that the
cost of the interest would be
around 2.5 percent, the going
rate for bonds right now, and
stated that the promissory
note could be delayed until
the project is actually, fin-
ished.
"I am glad of this, because
we sure don't have $150,000
for us to move the (utility)
lines," said Mayor Sharon


Food bank in Sebring

stocking its shelves


Continued from page 2A
The new bank operates
strictly on donations,
Stephenson said, and the ini-
tial $70,000 received to the
get the project started will
need to be reinforced as the
year progresses.
"We are going to have to
collect more funds to keep
this open. The pantries will
pay 19 cents per pound for
the food, and that will help
offset the cost for fuel and
rent some. But we are going,
to have to actively fundraise
to keep this going," he added.
"I am really proud of what
they have accomplished here
already," said Tim Blackman,
landlord of the warehouse,
who was on-site for tle con-
tract signing on Thursday.
"Highlands County has defi-
nitely needed this for years
and years, and these folks are
really putting this together."
Blackman has agreed,
Stephenson said, to supple-
ment the rent, as well as con-
tinue to volunteer and donate
to the Reservoir.
"We would like to thank


Mike Secor and the
'Highlands County Builder's
Association (HCBA).
Without their help, this could
have never happened,"
Stephenson said.
Secor was not at the sign-
ing due to illness, but Vice-
President of the HCBA
Ronnie Carter and Executive
Director Al Maretz were on
hand to witness the contract
signing.
"This is such a good proj-
ect. We are glad to be a part
of it," Carter said.
The HCBA handled all the
building and repairs needed
to get the warehouse in
shape.
Stephenson added that
Sweetbay Groceries donated
and assembled the shelving.
"Sweetbay drove them
over and brought four people
with them to assemble the
shelves. That was. greatly
appreciated. A lot of people
are volunteering their time
and efforts to make this pos-
sible. And with the help we
have so far, this is going to be
successful," Stephenson .said.


Schuler at the meeting.
The project is scheduled to
start within the next couple
of months, according to
Whitt.


Idol hopeful survives first Hollywood cuts
Continued from page 1A


the main look coming
when her all-girl quartet
was shown- rehearsing
their version of
"Superwoman" by Alicia
Keys.
But Dressel's group was
free of the drama that is
often the focus of the on-
air coverage of group
week and, as a result,
viewers didn't get to see
their performance.
"We were gQod,"
Dressel said of her group,
which was called the
Suffragettes. "Three of us
were from (the Orlando
auditions) and we all got
along. I guess that's why
they didn't show us."
Local fans can hope to
catch more of Dressel's
journey through the
American Idol process on
Tuesday at 8 p.m. when a
two-hour show airs. The
final 24 will be revealed
on Wednesday night.

Car carrier overturns


By ED BALDRIDGE

SEBRING Highlands
County Sheriff Deputies, the
Florida Highway Patrol .and
the Florida Department of
Transportation were all dis-
patched to an accident
involving a fully loaded
semi car carrier on Tuesday
afternoon.
Around 2:40 p.m., a light
blue GMC car carrier haul-
ing nine automobiles left the
road heading east on State
Road 66 near Payne Road.
The driver, Sergio Delfin
Mena from Miami, was
hauling used cars from Nova
Auto Sales to a location in
north Florida.
. Mena claimed that he
swerved onto- the shoulder
on the north side of the
highway and into the soft

ditch, but did not give a spe-
cific reason to the FHP.
As he attempted to pull
back onto the road, Mena
said, his vehicle flipped
over on its side, dislodging
several of the vehicles it was
carrying into the ditch.
The driver claimed to be
wearing his seat belt, and
told troopers that he had not
fallen asleep and was not
talking on his cell phone at
the time of the accident.
Mena was sited for care-
less driving, according to
the media release from the
Florida Highway Patrol' and
an alcohol investigation was
not involved.

Bus becomes book-mobile in Lake Placid


Continued from page 1A
book, and this year is kind
of a banner year for RCMA.
We have given away over
200,000 books from the
Panhandle to the 20 miles
north of The Keys," Cobb
said.
"This is fun," said Tamara
Annett, marketing and sales
director for Annett Bus
Lines. "We support literacy,
and this is one way to show
our support for the commu-
nity.
"Kids like the big exciting
vehicles," Annett said, as she
piled onto the bus with the
little ones, excited herself to
hear the next story.
And as for the kids?
"Wow, we get to get on
that," asked Ny'Shanti
Bostic as she was coming
out to see the bus for the
first time, all smiles.
"Man, that was cool," said
another pre-schooler as he
exited the bus and received
his picture of the big red
machine.
"This is the bus of fun


things to look at," said
Karen Lowe, a mentor and
teacher with RCMA as she
watched the first crew of
pre-schoolers exit. "RIF is a
great program. We have
events like this three times a
year. Our next one is in
April, and it gives the kids a
gift they can take home and
use over and over.
"We let the kids pick out
their own book based on
their interests. That way we
*know that they will continue
to be a long-life reader,
especially if they find that
interest," Lowe said:
The RCMA and RIF
would hand out more than
70 books to the pre-school-
ers, and an additional 94
books on Thursday to other
kids in the program.
"Some of the books were
even written in Spanish, and
a few were bilingual this
year. We try to help give
everyone a chance to became.
literate, even if they don't
speak English yet," Lowe
said.

a Reading Is Fundamental event in Lake Placid.*


According to Cobb, RIF
may in trouble this next
budget season across the
country.
"The President's budget
did not include funding for
RIF this year, so we are
encouraging parents and
teachers to let their
Congressmen and Senators
know that we want the pro-
gram to continue," Cobb


said.
Cobb advised that those
wishing to support RIF could
go to ww.rif.org and'input
their address to generate a
letter to the Congress and.
President.
"The more who let them
know in Washington, D.C.,
that we want the program,
the more likely they are to
fund it," Cobb said.


Director of Homeless Coalition dismissed by board


Continued from page 1A
McCollum, who is a board member of
the Highlands Homeless Coalition and
is representing board president Barbara
Cook, the Coalition Board was not com-
fortable with Reinhardt's ability with
the financial end of the job.
"We are looking for better accounta-
bility," McCollum said. "He (Reinhardt)
was no longer able to successfully man-
age the organization. He admitted that
to the board. He was terminated because
the organization has grown beyond his
ability to handle," McCollum said.
"We received a letter from DCA
(Department of Community Affairs)
questioning some of our practices, and
asking why our grants were being
drawn down. That concerned the board,
so we established a committee to look
into what Richard was doing, and to
look at his financial accountability.
After some research, we determined


that we needed and audit.
"We made two audit requests of
Richard. We asked him to put out a RFP
(Request for Proposal) for CPAs who do
auditing. The board's first request went
unanswered. After the second request,
he sent the RFPs to firms that don't do
auditing," McCollum said.
Additionally, McCollum stated that
other requests from the board went
unanswered.
"The board had difficulty getting the
financial documents they requested
from him. I made a. formal request in
writing, .which went unanswered, and
then a second written request, which
also went unanswered. Even after I vis-
ited his office and met with him, I was
not given the records," McCollum said.
Reinhardt, who served as a contracted
employee, was a real estate agent and
owned his own Web site company
before he was hired by the Coalition.


The mission of the Coalition is to end
chronic homelessness while providing
those at-risk of becoming homeless the
opportunity to become more self-suffi-
cient.
With the current economy, the needs
and the clients served has grown dra-
matically, according to McCollum, and
.that put a stress on the amount of
accounting required by the organization.
"This organization is much bigger
than any on.e individual, and the organi-
zation is moving forward. There is a lot
of need out there, and that's what we
want to focus on right now," McCollum
said.
Reinhardt also serves on the Board of
Directors for Habitat for Humanity in
Highlands County, and is the vice-presi-
dent for the Meals on Wheels program
in Avon Park.

tal resource permit, No. 28-0296767-001, to

Sprinkle Consulting, Inc., 18115 U.S. Highway
41 North, Lutz, FL 33549, to construct a
stormwater management system to serve
7.97 acres of the entire 20.0-acre site for a
new natural gas compressor facility. The proj-
ect area contains no wetlands, and no wet-
lands are proposed to be impacted by the ac-
tivity.
The project is located in Highlands County,
north of FDOT S.R. 70, Section 29, Township
37 South, Range 33 East, Class III Florida Wa-
ters.
The application is available for public inspec-
tion from -8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday
through Friday except for legal holidays, at the
Department of Environmental Protection,
2295 Victoria Avenue, Suite 364, Fort Myers,
FL 33901.
This permit is hereby granted. This action is
final and effective on the date filed witti the
Clerk of the Department unless a sufficient pe-
tition for an administrative hearing is timely
filed under Section 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes as provided below. If a suffi-
cient petition for an administrative hearing is
timely filed, this action automatically becomes
only proposed agency action on the applica-
tion, subject to the result of the administrative
process. Therefore, on the filing of a timely
and sufficient petition, this action will not be
final and effective until further order of the De-
partment. Because an administrative hearing
may result in the reversal or substantial modi-
fication of this action, the applicant is advised
not to commence construction or other activi-
ties until the deadlines noted below for filing a
petition for an administrative hearing or re-
quest for an extension of time have expired.
Mediation is not available.
A person whose substantial interests are af-
fected by the Department's action may peti-
tion for an administrative proceeding (hear-
ing) under Section 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the
information set forth below and must be filed
(received by the clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4) of the Florida Ad-
ministrative Code, a person whose substantial
interests are affected by the Department's ac-
tion may also request an extension of time to
file a petition for an administrative hearing.
The Department may, for good cause shown,
grant the request for an extension of time. Re-
quests for extension of time must be filed with
the Office of General Counsel of the Depart-
ment at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000,
before the applicable deadline. A timely re-
quest for extension of time shall toll the run-
ning of the time period for filing a petition un-
til the request is acted upon.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an admin-
' istrative hearing is filed, other persons whose
substantial interests will be affected by the
outcome of the administrative process have
the right to petition to intervene in the pro-
ceeding. Intervention will be permitted only at
the discretion of the presiding officer upon the
filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-

partment for notice of agency action may file a

tice, regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition
to the applicant at the address indicated above
at the time of filing. The failure of any person
to file a petition for an administrative hearing
within the appropriate time period shall con-
stitute a waiver of that person's right to re-
quest an administrative determination (hear-
ing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of
the Florida Statutes.
A petition that disputes the material facts on
which the Department's action is based must
contain the following information:
The name and address of each agency and
each agency's file or. identification number, if
known;
The name, address and telephone number of
the petitioner; the name, address and tele-
phone number of the petitioner's representa-
tive, if any, which shall be the address for
service purposes during the course of the pro-
ceeding; and an explanation of how the peti-
tioner's substantial interests are or will be af-
fected by the agency determination; A state-
ment of when and how the petitioner received

er, stating precisely the action that the peti-
tioner wishes the agency to take with respect
to the agency's proposed action.

facts on which the Department's action is
based shall state that no such facts are in dis-
pute and otherwise shall contain the same in-
formation as set forth above, as required by
Rule 28-106.301.
Under Sections 120.569(2)(c) and (d) of the
Florida Statutes, a petition for administrative
hearing must be dismissed by the agency if
the petition does not substantially comply
with the above requirements or is untimely
filed.
This permit constitutes an order of the Depart-
ment. Subject to the provisions of paragraph
120.68(7)(a) of the Florida Statutes, which
may require a-remand for an administrative
hearing, the applicant has the right to seek ju-
dicial review of the order under Section
120.68 of the Florida Statues, by the filing of a
notice of appeal under Rule 9.110 of the Flori-
da Rules of Appellate Procedure with the Clerk
of the Department in the Office of General
Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,

3000; and by filing a copy of the notice of ap-
peal accompanied by the applicable filing fees

Jaguar named the


official car of Sebring


americanlemans.com
Jaguar has been named
the Official Car of Sebring
International Raceway,
home of the Mobil 1 Twelve
Hours of Sebring presented
'by Fresh from Florida.
The 58th edition of
America's premier
endurance race runs on
Saturday, March 20th, kick-
ing-off the 2010 American
Le Mans Series season.
A legend of. motorsports,
Jaguar has a long and suc-
cessful history in sports car
racing. Jaguar first won Le
Mans in 1951 with the debut
of the C-TYPE, and cap-
tured four more wins during
the 1950s as well as in 1988
and 1990 at the famous
French endurance classic.
Jaguar scored its first
major victory in North
America by winning the 12
Hours of Sebring in 1955.
"Two of the most storied
names in motor racing have
joined together to form an
ideal marketing partner-
ship," stated Sebring
Raceway President and
General Manager Tres
Stephenson. "We look for-
ward to working with

GT class.


Jaguar to forge'a solid long-
term relationship."
"Jaguar is excited to enter
the very competitive
American Le Mans Series"
and return to Sebring, where
we have a great history,"
added Richard Beattie,
Jaguar North American
Executive Vice President for
Marketing and Sales. "With
a competition record in .the
U.S. reaching back to 1938,
it is important that we com-
pete at the highest levels of
motorsport."


As part of the agreement,
the circuit's Pit Tower has
been named the "Jaguar
Tower," honoring the"mar-
que's heritage at Sebring.
During the 1950s and
'60s, the race control tower
of the circuit's original pit
structure was also named
the "Jaguar Tower."
"We are pleased to bring
back this legendary land-
mark," added Stephenson.

Dragons keep Bulldogs at bay


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com .
AVON PARK A team
with a propensity for playing
to the level of its' competi-
tion facing a team whose
primary weapon is no longer
playing well, there is the
potential for a less than stel-
lar performance.
But Lake Placid put
together enough runs of
solid play to get past an
undermanned Frostproof
squad; 63-43, with little
drama to advance to the
semifinals of the District 9-
.3A tournament in Avon Park.
"We've been fighting that
tendency all year," head
coach David Veley said.
"Without (Demitrius)
Cherry, they're a very differ-
ent team." Lak
The absence of the
6-foot-5, 255-pound
Cherry, an imposing
inside force, changed Fro
the Bulldogs into a
scrapping, hard-charg- -
ing, aggressive bunch
that made for some
ugly early play, but kept
them within reach, trailing
just 13-7 after one.
Lake Placid had their
opportunities, .but couldn't
seem to remove the lid cov-
ering the basket as numerous
open looks and lay-ups
wouldn't fall.
A Zach Barker jumper
kept the Bulldogs nipping at
the Dragons heels, making it
a 17-14 game, but that's
when Thaddeus LeGree
caught fire.
In the span of little more
than a minute, LeGree
dropped in two threes, sand-
iwiching a steal and drive, to
Quickly push the lead to 25-
14 with a Janmichael
Serrano free throw making it
26-14 at the half.
LeGree stayed hot into the
third, scoring bn a leaner
and two more treys, while
Andre Wilson started to heat
up, driving the lane twice

Nick Swain got inside for
a Dragon score and Kirk
Veley made one of two free
throws and the lead was now
42-20.
A six-point Frostproof run
gave them some. hope,
though Veley hit another
free throw and Wilson con-
nected on a turnaround-
jumper in the lane.
Aaron Sims ended the
.third quarter with a power
move inside, but LeGree
opened the fourth with yet
another score from down-
town.
The Bulldogs held serve
pretty much, from then on,
but merely answering Lake
.Placid scores at this
Placid stage wasn't going
to get the job done
ts as the lead hovered
between 18 and 24
tproof the rest of the way
before finishing up
at an even 20.
"Consistency is
what we need to
work on," Veley said after-
ward. "We played good
defense tonight and, at
times, passed the ball real
well. But at times we didn't
take care of the .ball and
were missing some easy
shots.
"But (Frostproof) was
very aggressive and physical
on defense, which is a good
thing because that's what
we'll see from Mulberry," he
continued. "And that's the
key with Mulberry. We know
we can play with them and
we know what we'll see, an
aggressive, trapping
defense. It's just a matter of
making the right passes and
we can get some easy
scores."
The Dragons lost twice to
Mulberry during the season,
55-43 at home and 60-43 on
the road which gives Lake

The news keeps coming

with Sebring fan-favorite
Shane Lewjs accompanied by
Jerry Vento.
The announcement that
Audi will not be at Sebring

to a certain extent with the
prospect of not one, but two
Jaguars in the field.
Veteran Paul Gentilozzi
will be running the green and
black XKR's under the

"We are most fortunate to

to our historic facility."
The new RSR Jaguar
XKR GT will make its
Sebring debut in March.
The car took its first green
flag last October in the
American Le Mans Series
finale at Mazda Raceway
Laguna Seca and is set for a
full-season championship
effort in 2010.
Paul Gentilozzi, Principal
Partner of JaguarRSR, has a
stellar record at Sebring
including a class victory in
1992 and the overall pole
position in 1994.
' It also has been invited to
compete at this year's run-
ning of the 24 Hours of Le
Mans in GT2.
Mike O'Driscoll,
Managing Director of
Jaguar Cars said: "Our


designers and engineers
have taken the best of our
standard road-going XKR.
With Paul Gentilozzi's
motorsport expertise, we've
created a first-class compe-
tition car.
"Motorsport has always
been important to the Jaguar
brand," he added. "Our
domination of Le Mans in
the 1950s was a foundation
on which the company was
developed. As we look to
the future with our new
range of high-performance
'R' branded cars, we aim to
make the Jaguar brand syn-
onymous with motorsports
oncq again."
Sebring is America's old-
est road racing circuit,
established in 1950.
Since 1952, Sebring's 12-
hour classic has attracted
the world's best sports car


racing teams.
The American Le Mans
Series will open its 12th
season with America's
greatest sports car race, the
58th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours
of Sebring presented by
Fresh from Florida from
March 17-20.
The green flag will fall at
10:35 a.m. on Saturday,
March 20 with live cover-
age on SPEED.

dation information, see

Panthers

in state

rankings
The latest rankings by the
Florida Community College
Activities Association came out
last week and the Panthers of
South Florida have put them-
selves on the map.
With its 6-1 start, South
Florida baseball has cracked the
top ten, ranking seventh in the
poll released Tuesday, Feb. 9.
1. State College of Florida
2. Central Florida
3. Gulf Coast
4. Miami Dade
5. Tallahassee
6. Chipola
7. South Florida
8. Pensacola
9. St. Petersburg
10. Northwest Florida State
The Lady Panthers of the
softball diamond, meanwhile,
have pushed their way into the
'Also receiving votes' portion of
the state rankings.
This, despite early rainouts
which have cancelled three
games and a tough doublehead-
er loss at third ranked Sante Fe
last weekend.
"I think rankings are great
for the positive exposure it pro-
vides our institution," head
baseball coach and SFCC athlet-
ic director Rick Hitt said. "And I
think it is great because it rec-
ognizes the efforts your players
have made.
"Other than that the only
ranking that matters is the one
at the end of the season," he
continued. "The one that every
club is after, that top spot. We
are keeping it all in perspective
right now. We have played
seven games and we have a ton
of season to go and much to
improve upon. "
His team looks to continue
their early roll with a date at
Seminole State College in
Sanford today before taking on
a strong Sante Fe squad in a
doubleheader tomorrow, Feb.
13, at Panther Field beginning
at Noon.

God has an intended pur-
pose for each one of us from
the time of conception. Satan
often tries to interfere with
what God's original desire is
for us in life. Unfortunately,
we are placed in situations
that can cause much hurt in
our lives where we may feel
like such an outcast similar
to the Samaritan woman at
the well.
The Bible illustrates a
story about a Samaritan
woman and expresses what
God's main purpose was for
her found in John 4:7-26.
The woman was known to
have five husbands in the.
past and continued spending
her time with a man who
was not her husband.
What caused her to make
these kinds of choices? Why.
did she struggle in her rela-
tionships? Because of the
heat, the women would often
go to the well to draw their
water at cooler times of the
day, but the Samaritan
woman would fetch hers
during the hottest part of the
day in order to avoid the
other women. She was seen
as an outcast because of her
behavior.
Could you imagine how
she must have felt on the
inside? What was she think-
ing? Did she have needs in
her life that weren't being
met that might have caused
her to look for something in
the wrong places to fill her
emptiness and her longing to -
fit in?
As Jesus was pursuing His
ministry, He stopped in
Samaria to get a drink. Jesus
approached the Samaritan
woman for a drink, and she
could not understand why
He would have. asked her to
fetch Him a drink because
He was a Jew. The idea of
the Jews and Samaritans
associating with one another
was unheard of.
Another difficulty with
drawing water from the well
was that Jesus did not have a
container with Him. Keep in
mind that the woman did not
know that this man was
Jesus. In her mind, He was a
Jewish man. As she ques-
tioned Him, His response to
her was "if you knew the
gift of God, and who it is
who says to you, 'Give Me a
drink,' you would have
asked Him, and He would
have given you living water"
(John 4:10).
The woman 'questioned
Jesus about the water He
was talking about since He
didn't have a pail. She want-
ed to know where He got the
living water from that He
was referring to. Jesus point-
ed out that the water from
the well would not satisfy
anyone's thirst indefinitely.
However, the water He could
give would be in abundance
and everlasting.
The woman responded by
choosing to turn to the water
Jesus was offering and doing
away with the water from
the well. What was so differ-
ent about the water Jesus
was offering compared to the
water at the well? The water
at the well was only tempo-
rary, and she would have to
keep going back for more.
When Jesus was offering her
water, he was not referring
to drinking water; but eternal
life. She had a choice, and
she could have rejected
Jesus' offer. However, she

was drawn to Him because
of His unconditional love
that would never fail.
Shortly after expressing
this decision, Jesus revealed
Himself to her as the ,
Messiah, also known as
Christ. Following the uniting
of the Samaritan woman and
Jesus at the well, she pro-
ceeded to make her way into
the city to tell others about
Jesus.
Is it possible that this
woman found her true pur-
pose in life? Has this
woman found the one in her
life she could truly depend
on to make her feel whole
again? Maybe she would no
longer be seen as an outcast.
As the Samaritan woman
continued to tell others
about Jesus, God used her in
a way that brought many
other Samaritans to Christ.
Many of us have similar
issues as she did. Others
may look down upon us for
who we are, how we are cur-
rently living, or how we
have lived in the past. There
are many causes for this.
Because of the hurt and
loneliness that we often
experience as a result of
being mistreated or rejected,
it is not unusual for us to
search in a way that'may
often lead us into unhealthy
relationships, drugs, alcohol,
etc.
These are only a few
issues that people often
struggle.with to fill voids.
Most people want to feel
significant in some fashion
and will do what it takes to
seek recognition. Regardless
of the direction people take,
the end result can end up
with feeling hurt, confused,
empty, and lost on the
inside.
Jesus Christ was not only
offering His water to the
Samaritan at the well. He is
offering it to everyone who
will come. He knows all of.
our struggles, and only He
can repair what has been
broken from the inside out
and make one feel whole
again just as the woman at
the well. If we are willing to
allow the Lord to take us
through this continuous
process, He is able to show
each one of us His true
intended purpose for our
lives in which we are able to
thirst no more.
Finding our purpose
through Jesus Christ is not
an easy process. By choos-
ing His water to quench our
thirst on a daily basis, we
may find peace and rest for
our soul. Furthermore, we
may find what God wants
for our lives rather than what
we think is best by diligently
seeking Him.
We must seek Him daily
through His word, prayer,
and by trusting God in all
we do. God's word tells us
"ask, and it will be given to
you; seek, and you will find;
knock, and it will be opened
