Ashley Williams and her aunt Gwen Johnson, both of Venus, fill jugs of water Tuesday morning at the Bert J.
Harris Jr. Agriculture Center in Sebring. Johnson said she has been using the county's free water since the
early 1990s. The county had planned on shutting off the water as of March 1 (a close-up of the sign pictured
above is below), but decided to leave the service in place with a few adjustments to prevent abuse.

Flowers had also recommended
adding a meter to the dispensing

-SEBRING County commissioners
took a long look at the recent audit of the
county-owned asphalt plant at their meet-
ing on Tuesday, and a couple of them
stated that investment was not good for
the taxpayer.
"The asphalt plant, in
my opinion, has been run
inefficiently and incom-
petently, and the asphalt
plant should be closed,"
said Commissioner Jeff
Carlson, who is a certi-
fied public accountant. Carlson
Going through the 12
negative findings one at a time, county
staff were not able to satisfy Carlson's
questions about exact costs and how the
money taken from other funds would be
paid back.

Putnam speaks at Republicans'

annual Lincoln Day Dinner


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING On Abraham Lincoln's birth-
day on Friday, Florida District '12
Congressman Adam Putnam, a candidate for
Commissioner of Agriculture, spoke to an
enthusiastic crowd at the annual Lincoln's
Day Dinner at the Four Points Sheraton in
Sebring.
Putnam stressed his commitment to small
government arid traditional Republican val-
ues. He reminded his listeners and agriculture
is the second most important economic sector
for the state and how important it is to have a
commission of agriculture who really under-
stands and is committed to agriculture.
He also explained that under the Florida
Constitution, the Commissioner of
Agriculture is an important office that carries
numerous additional powers and is part of the
cabinet.
A fifth-generation Floridian who grew up
working on the family farm, Putnam is recog-


nized as a strong advocate for agriculture,
food safety and wildlife conservation. A
native of Bartow and a graduate of the
University of Florida with a bachelor of sci-
ence degree in food and resource economics,
he worked in his family's citrus and cattle
business and served in the Florida House of
Representatives representing the 63rd District
from 1996 to 2000, before being elected to
Congress. He has decided to leave Congress
so he can spend more time with his family. "
Among the elected officials in attendance
were Congressman Tom Rooney and Denise
Grimsley, State Representative for District
77. There were also a number of candidates
for office including Gayle Harrell, who is
running for state representative in District 81
and Don Elwell and Peter Pollard, who are
running for country commissioner District 2.
Ben Albritton,. who is running for State
Representative in District 66, had planned to
attend but was prevented by -illness.

Weaver is an important part
of Lake Placid's history, and
since his recent battle with
cancer he has stepped for-
ward to help get out the mes-
sage of hope provided in part:

Weaver's local journey
began when he moved from

law, Weaver worked for'his
wife's father, W.T. Lewis,' at
the original Lewis' Truck

Back in those days, it was
a 24/7 operation that includ-'
ed not only a restaurant, but',,
also some motel rooms for
truckers, several tow trucks
and fuel service. After sever-
al attempts to sell the family,
business the Weavers
reopened what is now called
The Lake Placid Family
Restaurant in 1985. Today,
his daughters, Sonya Baxter
and Shannon Bertram, keep
things running smoothly
with some part-time help
from Sam's son Terry, and
his wife Toni.
In September of. 2009,

Commissioners asked
Flowers some questions,
but decided to allow him to
make the changes instead
of taking a formal action.
"I appreciate you taking
that step and not just cut-
-ting it off," said
-Commissioner Edgar
Stokes.
Flowers also pointed out
that residents with contam-
inated wells could contact
the Department of
Environmental Protection,
who has a program for
those with bad wells.
"The state DEP will pro-
vide relief to contaminated
wells at no cost," Flowers
said. "And they are current-
ly seeking permission to.
waive the initial testing of
your well if you think any-
thing is wrong. People just
have to call the Health
Department."
Although 'Flowers .gave
no time ,frame for the
changes; he did assert that
he would return to the com-
mission with a report after
the changes were made.


'A lot of people
use this service,
and I am
appreciative that
you decided to
continue to
provide it.'

ROSIE EARP
of Lake Placid

"I sure appreciate the
commissioners to allow us
to continue to use it. I have
used it for years, and I
appreciate it. Not only for
me, but there is a lot of
other people that use' it,"
Lake Placid's Rosie Earp
fold commissioners on
Tuesday.
Earp had originally
raised her concerns at the
last commission meeting
about the free water.

This week the majority of
the board of county commis-
sioners voted to "not accept
the contract for the Turnpike
don't know what the con-

that will result in a loss of
revenue to Highlands
County. How aboutthis

alternative?
Direct Mr. (Michael)
Wright (county administra-
,. tor) to negotiate a contract

with President Obama to
accept the excess snow in
the District of Columbia
(DC). As things stand now,
--.m































the DC snow is being

dumped into the Potomac
River.
We could have the snow
spread on the landfill slopes-
the coand.have the exclusive
snow boarding site in Florida.
Why not make Highlands
County known as the recre-
ation capitol, rather than the
solid waste capitol, ofu
Florida. The daily snow-
boarder admission fees
would probably exceed the
contaminated soil revenue
and it would, most impor-ida.
tantly, "make us look good".
.The demographics of snow-
boarders would also guaran-

tee.a revenue stream from
traffic citations, give the
Clerk of Court a shot in the
arm with that additional rev-
enue source,.give the sher-
iff's office more second dol-
lar funding and introduce
more people to who and
what we are.

Violation of Florida's
ethics laws
Editor:
An open letter to the agent
of a special district called
the Spring Lake
Improvement District:
Did you and the special
district, called the Spring
Lake Improvement District,
violate the Ethics of the,
Political Profession when
you, the registered agelt, the
board and its manager, with-
out consulting the home and
property owners of this spe-
cial district draw up a spe-
cial bill asking for broad
new powers to the special
district without a voter refer-
endum, district wide vote or
survey of property owners?
The agent and the board,

TODAY'S LETTERS
asked the Florida State,
Attorney General for addi-
tional powers to purchase a
golf course and additional
private business, without a
voter referendum; district
wide vote or survey of prop-
erty owners. You were
turned down by the Attorney
General of Florida. With this
new proposed bill, you the
agent and its board and man-
ager are attempting to get
around that advisory opinion
of the state of Florida's
attorney general, and again
violating the Florida Ethics
Laws.
Can you explain why we
the home and property own-
ers should not file an ethics
complaint with the
Commission on Ethics, as
this is a violation of
Florida's Ethics Laws.
The governor can remove
elected and appointed offi-
cials if the above charges are
true. .
I attended the Feb. 10
SLID meeting charging the
-board with violating
Florida's Ethics Laws. As I
fully expected most of the
board took turns verbally
attacking my character.
I would suggest that those
opposed to this power grab
to file a complaint with the
Florida Commission on
Ethics. You may call 850-
488-7864, go on line at

Accident victim says
intersection in Avon
Park needs a light
Editor:
An open letter to
Stephanie C. Kopelotisos,
Secretary of Transportation,
State of Florida:
I was involved in an acci-
dent in Avon Park, Fla., on
Friday, Jan. 29, 2010. The
accident occurred at the
intersection of U.S. 27 and
Palmetto, when a car crossed
five lanes of traffic, and I hit
him broadside after skidding
15 feet in the sixth lane.
He said he did not see me.
Both our cars were severely
damaged and required tow
trucks. My wife was injured.
This is the same intersec-
tion written to you about by
David Cowles in January,
and printed in the Letters to
the Editor section of the
News-Sun newspaper of
Highlands County. This acci-
dent occurred at the new


Walmart entrance.
I would like to add my
request to the one made by
David Cowles. Some sort of
warning devices are needed
at this intersection.
Jim Culpepper
White House, Tenn.


Some need the water
Editor:
Pertaining to the article
about shutting off the drink-
ing water supply at the Bert
J. Harris Agriculture Center,
don't we pay for that service
on our property taxes?
Many of us are on a fixed
income and have shallow
wells. We cannot afford to
drill deeper wells, so the Ag
Center is our only source of
clean drinking water.
My water comes out yel-
low, and I only use it to
wash .and shower with.
If people do not shut the
faucet off tight, or vandals
,turn it on, then maybe the
sheriff's department out to
patrol that area more often.
Why should we all be pun-
ished for what a few do?

Best wishes to
Winter Olympic
athletes
Editor:
I do wish the grandson of
Melvin and Grace Heck,
Louie Vito, well in his
endeavor in representing the
United States in the Winter
Olympics as part of the snow
boarding team.
After watching Louie on
"Dancing With The Stars"
last season I fell for his
smile'-and keep voting for
him as long as he was on the
show. He really came a long
way, the first few shows he
had two left feet. But did
that ever change.
I know Melvin and Grace
have to be proud of Louie
and they have every right to
be. I only wish I was close
enough to.the family to meet
him; he comes across as
such a sweetheart.

numbers, specifically to carry
losses from under-billing, if I
were running a business, I
would be closed down. I'd be
done. That's a pretty big deal,
in my opinion," Carlson
added.
Assistant County
Administrator Rick Helms
started the debate by telling
commissioners that the county
reached the goal of producing
asphalt cheaper than it could
buy it.
"The primary issue that
comes out of this is whether
or not asphalt was produced at
a lower price than what the
bid price was from a private
vendor. I think you will find
was in fact that the county did
produce asphalt at a lower
price than the bid price,"
Helms said.
Helms asserted -that the
plant produced asphalt at a
cost of $78.51 per ton com-
pared to the bid rate of $85
per ton.
One of the major issues
pointed out by the audit, was
the negative cash balance of


$1.15 million that the county
incurred over' the last two
years while setting up and
getting the plant started.
According to the Clerk of
Courts audit, a negative cash
balance violates Florida
Statutes and has to .be
addressed.
Bernis Gainer, director of
the County Office of Budget
and Management, told com-
missioners that they wanted to
borrow money from the Solid
Waste Fund to float a short-
term loan to get the cash flow
back to a positive number,
then seek outside assistance
or loans to pay back that
account.
Additionally, Helms told
commissioners that the under-
billing incurred could also be
made up in a per-ton sur-
charge to other county depart-
ments for the asphalt.
"This audit identified all
costs of this operation up to
this time," Helms said. "After
identifying these costs, our
question is can we still make
the asphalt at a lower rate than
we can purchase it, and the
answer is yes."
But Commissioner Barbara
Stewart disagreed with
Helms.
"A statement was made that
all the costs with this opera-
tion were identified. Correct
me if I am wrong, but all the


costs associated with this
operation were not identified.
Not quantified and not identi-
fied. It clearly states in here,
that the auditors found that all
the costs were not broken out.
For example, Mr. (Ken)
Wheeler's time. For example,
some of the work that was
done by the landfill people.
For example, some of the time
from Road and Bridge. For
example, some of the equip-
ment that was used.
I accept that some of the
costs were not broken out, but
let's not say to the public that
all the costs were identified.
To me that is a misleading and
incorrect statement," Stewart
asserted.
Carlson went on to question
how the proposed loan would
be paid back, and how much
interest 'would be incurred,
and if those amounts were
included in the cost of making
each ton of asphalt.
Gainer and Helms informed
Carlson that those exact num-
bers would be determined in
an upcoming cost analysis
they would prepare and bring
back to the commission.
"In the private sector, when
your money is involved you
are very careful with your
money. In government, when
it's not your money, but some-
one else's, money, I think this
points that out," Stewart said.

Keep the faith, and continue
loving everyone.'"

ing in their name. Put your
change in the cans you see at

es art at Sebring- High
School, began the event.
"I wanted (my students)
to learn how to help their
community," he said.
He makes sure the stu-
dents get to at least meet the
family they help, so they
have a personal, not an
abstract, experience.
Onfe year stands out in
Van Dam's memory. A 10-
month-old boy needed
transplants of every organ in
his body except his heart.
The students raised $2,800
on his behalf. The money
was used for a medivac
flight to the hospital.
When his students real-
ized they had paid for that
ride, it truly brought home
how important one person's
, ,contribution can be.
Van Dam' couldn't be
more proud.
"The kids put over 1,000
hours of effort into this," he
said. 'They've made about
350 bowls, contacted restau-


rants, and, chose the child
t-he y wanted to help.,'
Principals submitted
namessof children who were
in need of medical assis-
tance and the students
picked their candidate from
them.
This year the club decid-
ed to help 3-year-old Janet
Gomez Mercado, who has
Down Syndrome and as yet
undiagnosed -heart prob-
lems. She has four brothers
and sisters who attend
Woodlawn Elementary
School.
Janet's mother does not
drive, so trips to doctors in
Orlando, Tampa and Miami
are difficult, especially as
Janet's siblings are still so
young they can. '-i left
home alone. ..
Because there are a limit-
ed number of bowls, it is
wise to call the school in
advance for tickets, but last-
minute arrivals will be wel-
come. For more informa-
tion, call 471-5500.

Lady lifters push hard at State


By STEPHANIE HICKS
News-Sun Correspondent
PORT ST. RICHEY -
"Light weight baby," is the
phrase that four weightlift-
-ing girls .in Highlands
County live by.
Heather Luciano from
Sebring, Taquasha
Hawthorne from Lake
Placid, and two ladies from
Avon Park, Andejoua Nixon
and Tyikeria Wiley, traveled
to River Ridge High School
in New Port Richey on Feb.
13 to compete in the 2010
FHSAA Girls Weightlifting
Finals.
In the 183-pound weight
class, Nixon took home a
fifth-place medal by lifting a
335 total and Hawthorne
took 10th with a 305 pound
total.
Luciano ranked ninth in
state with a 330 pound total
in the unlimited weight class
along with Wiley placing
15th with a 320 pound total.
After a long two weeks of
practicing between section-
als and finals the four girls
traveled hours away ,frQm
home' to participate' in a
heatpd cormpetiiion.
Waim-ups began and ihe
girls headed over to the
benches and began giving
their starting weights for


bench press. Some of the
girls we intimidated by the
other lifters.
"I was pretty amazed at
what some of the girls were
listing as their starting
weights but'I was more con-
cerned with getting my first
lift," said Luciano, a senior.
"I was focused."
One by one, warm-ups
went on until the judges
started calling for everyone
to return to their designated
lifting areas.
To start off, on the bench,
Nixon lifted 180 pounds,
Hawthorne pressed 140
pounds, Luciano cleared 175
and Wiley got 165 up each
successfully lifting their
first weight with no prob-
lem.
Nixon, Hawthorne, and
Wiley all advanced 10
pounds on their bench and
accomplished it with ease.
"I was confident with my
first two lifts," said
Hawthorne. "I didn't want to
start too high and not get my
lifts. I did what I knew -I
could do.Twasn't nervous at
all, because I prayed about it
and I knew God was on my
side."
However Luciano's sec-
ond lift was 180 pounds and

Three 'touchdowns' lead to Lady Streak win

Wendy Negrin gets a hold of this pitch for an RBI triple in
Monday's 21-3 win over visiting Liberty.


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com .
SEBRING It took an
inning for them. to' get rolling,
but when the Lady Streak
bats got started there was no
slowing them down as visit-
ing Liberty found out
Monday night in Sebring's
21-3 win.
It was actually the
Lady Chargers who Seb
got on the board first,
scoring twice in the
top of the first while 2
the Streaks went Lit
scoreless in their half
for a 2-0 Liberty lead
after one.
But 'Haley Pack set-
tled in and went through the
top of the second one, two,
three before the offense got it
going. -
"The first two pitchers
we've seen this year have
been slower," head coach Joe
Sinness said. "Most of our
girls play travel ball and are


used to girls really bringing
it, so it's an adjustment for
them to wait and let the ball
get to them."
They let the ball get to
them all right, as three
Streaks paid the team-bene-
fitting sacrifice of getting hit
lby pitches in the second,
helping set the table 'for an
RBI from Carrie
bring Dudek and a two-run
knock from Dino
f1 Lower in the seven-
run frame.
>erty Liberty did get a
runner to third in the
top of the third, but
left her stranded and
the Sebring offense
was soon back at it.
A Pack single brought
home the first run of their
half of the third and loaded
the bases for a Lower blast to
left center that short hopped
the fence and brought home
two.


Amanda Grimaldo then
followed with a two-run dou-
ble and Wendy Negrin
brought,-in another.. with a:
triple to the left-field fence to
push the lead to 14-2.
The Chargers put together
another threat in the fourth,
loading the bases with two.
out, but Pack got a strikeout
to end it without any damage
done.
"At that point, Haley was
losing her focus a bit,"
Sinness said. "She thrives on
competition and when the
game is out of hand like that,
she can get out of rhythm. In
close games, I don't have to
worry about her at all."
With Pack then done for
the night as Sinness looks for
another pitcher to replace
southpaw Katelyn Ostrander,
who was lost in the season
opener with a knee-injury,
the offense was about to give
Amanda Grimaldo a little


extra cushion a, she readied
to take the mound "
Carly Hoffner and Tayla
DaSil\a reached and Lauren
\Velborn moled them to sec-
ond and third before Hoffner
raced home on a wild pitch.
Pack then reached for
Lower to knock two more in
with another double, giving
her six RBI on the night.
Negrin soon added another
ribbie with a single, and
when the hard-hit ball got
past the left fielder, two more
came in and Negrin moved to
third.
Hoffner and DaSilva then
each added RBI singles to
finish off the Sebring scoring
with their third seven-run
inning in a row.
Grimaldo didn't have
much trouble in the fifth,
striking out her first batter
before surrendering a walk
and single.

Sebring grad Tony Vazquez hit a two-run, pinch-hit home run Saturday, but it wasn't
enough as Sante Fe topped the SFCC Panthers 13-10 in the first game of a doubleheader
sweep.

Panthers drop three on weekend


By DANHOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK The plan
laid out for the SFCC base-
ball squad- was .somewhat
akin to the making of -a
sword.
The blazing heat of the fur-
nace to help meld the steel
before hammering it into
shape and honing it into 'a
lethal weapon.
"We intentionally chal-
lenged our club early here
with seven of -our first 10
games on the road and a host
of quality clubs," head coach
Rick Hitt said. "We have
come through this first patch -
of games with a better under-
standing of who we are and
what our shortcomings are."
Let's call this the furnace
phase of the season, which
just ended with doubleheader
loss to a strong Sante Fe team
Saturday and a narrow loss
at Seminole Sunday.


The Saturday slugfest saw,
the Saints come out with 13-
10 and 12-10 wins.
"We still swung the bats
well," Hitt said. "It's hard'to
argue with scoring 10 runs
and banging out double-digit
hits for the ninth game in a
row."
But the Sante Fe hit squad
proved just a bit more potent
on the day.
Heading up to Sanford
Sunday, for a makeup of
Friday's rainout, and it was
the pitching staffs turn to step
up.,
"Our starting pitching and
bullpen did possibly the best
to date here," Hitt said. "We
made two mistakes on
defense with runners in scor-
ing position that hurt in a
tight ball game."
The bats, also, missed
some chances in leaving
some runs on the bases in the
5-3 loss.


"You have to tip your hat"
to Seminole," Hitt said.
"They pitched us real well."
The Panthers, now 6-4 on
the year, host two games this
week, welcoming Indian
River State College tonight,
at 5 p.m. before Broward
College comes to town for a
Friday game at 6 p.m.
The Lady Panthers, play-
ing for the first time in a
week due to Tuesday's rain-
out, split in a pair of shutouts
at Indian River.
A 7-0 tilt went the way of
the Pioneers in the opener
before thePanthers bounced.
back with a 10-0 clobbering
to move their early-season
record to 4-3.
SFCC softball is back in
action Saturday at Ave Maria
University in Immokalee at 1
p.m. with the Lady Panthers
on the road for the rest of the
month.


Dragons top Terriers


Continued from 1B
Wells then stole second,
came to third on an errant
throw down and soon scam-
pered home on a wild pitch to
make it a 5-1 lead.
Bria Wilson singled home
Martinez in the fifth to bump
the lead to 6-1 before Moore
Haven got there three in the
top of the sixth to make
things a bit more interesting
at 6-4.
But that was when the
Dragons put it away, scoring
seven in the bottom of the
sixth.
Wells walked to start the
parade of runs, stealing sec-
ond and getting to third on a
wild pitch.
Test reached on a fielder's
choice, with the throw home
too late to nab Wells.
Allen and Martinez each
walked to load the bases
before Kylie Weber doubled
to score two with Martinez
coming in when the throw
trying to get Allen got past
the catcher, bringing Weber
to third.'
Laine Callahan hit a chop-
per to first to bring Weber in
and then Arnetia Gobourne
got things started again with
a single.
She proceeded to steal sec-
ond before Wise earned her
way on with a hit-by-pitch.
; The two runners then each
took off, and when the throw
to third, got away, Gobourne
t Iame in to score and Wise
made it to third.
Wells then finished it off
with an RBI single to left.

Kylie Weber tags out this Moore Haven baserunner to end
an inning in Lake Placid's 13-5 win Monday.


Moore Haven looked to
give itself one more chance,
scoring once in the seventh
and having a runner on first
with one out.
But a fly ball to short cen-
ter was nabbed by
Summerfield who tried
throwing behind the runner.
That throw got away, but
Wells, backing up the play
from her catcher position,
retrieved the throw to nail the
runner now trying to advance
for a game-ending double
play.
"The girls have worked
really, really hard on their
hitting," Cheshire said.
"They know when a strike is
coming over the plate, what
to do, and that breeds confi-
dence.
"And that's something they
need to carry over into the
other parts of the game," she
continued. "They need to be


more aware of what's going
on and not look to us to tell
them what they need to do.
That's hard to work on when
your first three games are
canceled by the weather."
So of course it will be a
learning process for the
young squad as the season'
moves along with their bats
to carry them in meantime.
The team was to host
Mulberry Tuesday in district
play before traveling to
Frostproof Friday to face the
Bulldogs in another early
district contest.


Ladies see strong lifts at highest level


Continued from 1B
Luciano. "I knew all I had to
do was explode like coach
(Steve Berry) said and I got
it on my third lift."
For their third lifts, Nixon
attempted 190 pounds,
Hawthorne attempted 155
and Wiley attempted 180.
None of these girls were
able to lift their final bench
press.
"I wasn't disappointed
that I didn't lift 155 pounds
because I couldn't get it-
when I was warming up; so
I decided to make that my
last lift and if I. got it -
good," said Hawthorne.."If I
couldn't get it, that is okay.
I would still be proud of
myself for trying."
The girls then began to
wait and watch the other
lifters until bench press was
over.
They then called for
warm-ups once again, but
this time for clean and jerk,
and the girls started lifting.
After warm-ups each of
the girls from Highlands
County began cleaning and
jerking their first weights.
All four began at 140
pounds and all succeeded in
their first attempts.
Nixon, Hawthorne and
Luciano all cleaned and
jerked 150 pounds for their
second lift. Nixon, however,
was not able to make the
lift.
"I have been doing this
for three years now and each
year I have gotten better
each year," said Nixon. "I'm
proud of myself."
For Wiley's second lift
she lifted 145 pounds easily,
but after adding ten pounds
for her third try, she
dropped it during the clean

portion of the lift.
For their final lift,
.Luciano attempted 160
pounds, Hawthorne took a
crack at 155 pounds arid
Nixon tried 150 pounds.
Hawthorne successfully
lifted all three of her clean
and jerks but was not disap-
pointed about not trying
more weight because, "I
lifted something that I have
never lifted before. That
was the first time I ever lift-
ed 155 pounds. I ,couldn't
get it 'at practice but I got it
at state; that was more than
enough for me. My total,
305 pounds, is my personal


best. .
On the other' hand,
Luciano took a risk for her
last clean and jerk.
.Instead of lifting 155
pounds, she attempted lift-
ing 160 for a chance at top
10 in the state. Although she
didn't lift the weight she
was not disappointed.
"I regret not being able to
get it, but that's no big
deal," said Luciano. "I had a
good season with a lot of
fun; I made it."
They all made it and in
the process did themsevles,
families, schools and com-
munities proud.


Devils send Hubbard,



Torres to state meet


Continued from 1B
you are doing up there,"
Elder said. "I think that both
guys could do well. They
have both put in the work
and time, and if you put in
as much work as they have,
it pays off."
According to Brown,
Torres is fighting additional.
issues with his health, but is
probably the healthiest he
has ever been all season


coming into the state finals.
"Omar is fighting with
diabetes and has had some
back issues. But both of the
guys are as good as anyone
out there, and both have as
good a chance as anyone
else," Brown said. '"If he
(Torres) wrestles as good as
he did last week in the
regional, he will be in the,
finals."
"Charles is- a very easy


going and focused student,
and will do anything you
ask him to do without any
argument. He executes his
training, and is a winner,"
Brown said.
"This is why you wrestle,
to see how you match-up
with the others from around
the state," Elder said "We
are looking for good per-
formances out of both of
them."


Streaks move to 2-0


Continued from 1B
A'fielder's choice got the
second out, but an infield
single brought Liberty's
final run home before
Grimaldo induced a
grounder to short for the
final out.
"We're young, especially
when you get to the bottom
of our order, but one
through six, we have some
hitters," Sinness said. "But
the bottom of the order
came through tonight too,
with Carly (Hoffner) and
Tayla (DaSilva) get some
hits.
"After missing last sea-
son, Amanda (Grimaldo)
has stepped right back into a
leadership role and Wendy
(Negrin) has really been
vocal in leading this team,"
he continued. "I've got good
team chemistry."
Now 2-0 on the season

and in district play, the
Streaks were on the road
Tuesday at Osceola.
"From what I've heard,
we'll be seeing a lot of left-
handed bats and they have a


better than average pitcher,"
Sinness said. "This will be,
by far, our best challenge of
the year so far."

'A spring 2008 survey by General Mills, Inc. asked parents how they select a birthday party
theme for their birthday boy or girl. Here are some typical responses:
* "For a child's party, I usually ask the child if they want a theme or a certain character." -
i* "I.decide the food a week or so in advance and try and get things most will like."
* "Just think of something fun for everybody involved."

of The Betty Crocker Kitchens. "When planning the food and activities for themed parties, it is
'important to enjoy the party-giving experience so it's memorable for both parents and kids. After

Party Perfect Pictures
Whether it's baby's first or great-grandmother's ninetieth, these tips from the Kodak Gallery
experts will make birthday photos special.
Capture the emotion. Keep the camera on and ready to catch great candids.
Show the candles aglow. To capture the light from burning candles at night, turn off your
flash.
Avoid red eye. Turning on all the room lights helps. If the camera has a "red-eye reduction"
feature, use it.
Get close. To capture impactful pictures, fill as much of the camera's shot with the subject.
Check the camera manual for guidance on the closest focusing distance.
