While the woman had no
baby with her, an obstetri-


cian/gynecologist was
called. in and determined
the woman had completed ai
full-term birth.
The sheriff's office was
called in at 8:41 a.m., and
deputies were sent to 342
Tern Ave. There they found,
evidence of'a home birth
and the body of a newborn.
"The situation is being.
treated as a death investiga-
tion," said Sgt. Darin Hood-

mation was being released
until the investigation had
time to progress, but did

SEBRING On Feb. 12,
Tom Sarchioto, 86, made a typ-
ical Friday run from his home
to the recycling center at the
Max Long Recreation Complex
to dispose of his newspapers..
As he tossed a pile into the
middle opening, a ring -

treasure,


sary in 1975 flew off his finger and fell
into the canister.
Never mind that it was a gold nugget ring
with six diamonds and expensive, its true
Sale was in the tie to his beloved wife Jeari.
Sarchioto was devastated.
He was.also determined.
He drove home, got a flashlight and a 6-
foot ladder, returned to the bin and proceed-
ed to crawl in not an easy feat for any-
body, but especially for Sarchito because he
suffers from a touch of scoliosis and uses a
cane. For about an hour he shifted through
the packed papers, but had no luck.


"I thought it was goodbye _
Joe," he said, and went home.
He remembered a time when
a similar thing haid happened to
his wife and she accidentally
lost her engagement ring. It
had been insured, so they were
able to replace it;
His ring too was insured, but
it was with a-heavy heart he
called his insurance agent,
Mitzi Baker with Kelton Hill


State Farm. After all, this was an 'irreplace-
able piece of jewelry, more of a heart memo-
ry than a gem.
As it happens, however, Baker is friendly
with Christy Reed, the recycling program
manager for Highlands County. Baker's first
thought was that Sarchioto should give Reed
a call before giving up.
"The sentimental value of the ring is
something that couldn't be replaced," Baker
said, "even though it was covered by insur-
ance."

LAKE PLACID -
Florida's Association of
Student Councils is divided
into six districts.
District V includes 67 high
schools and 172 middle
schools from eight counties:
Highlands, DeSoto, Glades,
Indian River, Martin,
Okeechobee, Palm Beach and
St. Lucie.
Approximately 240 stu-
dents from over 20 of those
schools gathered at Lake
Placid High School Friday
night and all day Saturday for
the third, and final, district
meeting in the 2009-10
school year.
The gathering included
elections, competitions,
workshop sessions and an
official district meeting, in
which each school has two
votes when conducting busi-
ness.
The elections were for dis-
trict officers. The competi-
tions included a talent and
--fashion show as well as exer-
cises in parliamentary proce-
dure/and public speaking. The
workshops presented local
business and agency leaders
to small groups of students
who then discussed the
unique leadership challenges
each faced.
For example, Sheriff Susan
Benson discussed law
enforcement, representatives
of Aeromed explained the
transportation of seriously
injured or ill patients, and
clowns from the Toby the
Clown Foundation talked
about laughter as public serv-
ice.
The two-day event is a
complicated, action-packed
time. Those in charge have to
worry about details ranging
from on-time pizza deliveries,
to room assignments, to
greeting guest speakers, to

Colby pleads not


guilty to charges


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun .com
SEBRING Local
activist Preston Colby
pleaded not guilty at an
arraignment on misde-
meanor trespassing and petit
theft charges Thursday.
Assistant State Attorney
Steve Houchin filed
the charges., against
Colby on Jan. 22, I
three months after 'r
Colby's vehicle was -
seized and searched
at the Road and
Bridge Department.
A property receipt C(
from the search
showed that a "shovel, blue
plastic lid and asphalt or
concrete like rock" were
collected.
Houchin said in January
that the two rocks were "too
small to be worth much, but
were valued at under $300."
Colby was offered a
chance by the state to settle
the matter, but decided not
to take the state's offer and
pled not guilty to both


charges'. "
Additionally, Colby, rep-
resenting himself at the pro-
ceedings, refused to waive
his rights to" a speedy trial
and Jipheld his rights to a
trial by a jury.
Colby also asked .the
court to take notice that the
Highlands County
Road and Bridge,
> which is listed as the
victim, was. not "a
--. .- legal entity" and
therefore had no
property rights.
Judge Anthony
olby Ritenour granted the
prosecution a hear-
ing on the specific point of
law, and set a hearing for
March 4.
Ritenour also granted the
prosecution's request that
Colby draft a formal motion
to argue the legal standing
of Road and Bridge as an
entity, and set the pretrial
conference for March 15.
"I have no comment on
the case at this point,"
Colby said on Friday.


Sebring man charged

with cruelty to cat


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.balJridgJet 'ni ssin.com
SEBRING- A 33-year-
old man wasi charged' 'with
cruelty~ to 'animals after
. emergency workers ,were
'called to the scene to ives-
tigate a bite.
Jason Walter Corley of
Sebring was charged with
: causing cruel pain and suf-
fering to an animal, a third-
degree felony, on Thursday.
'According to Sebring
Police Department Officer
Matt Cloud, the charges
stem from a incident in
August when Corley was
bitten by a cat named
Angel.
Testimony -from the cat's
owner, who was not identi-
fied in the police report,
stated that Corley often
abused the cat.
Corley stated that while
feeding the cat, he had been
bitten, and stated that the


cat was "aggravating him."
While talking to Cloud,
Corley could not explain in
detail why the cat had
angered him, and stated
that he "seldom hits the cat
*and very rarely throws the
cat."
'Cloud observed that the
cat had some type of recent
trauma to the left jaw area
and was missing some fur.
The cat was also covered
with spots of blood over its
head and body, which came
from Corley's bite.
A local- veterinarian who
examined the cat stated to
police that the animal
"seemed swollen and
bruised."
The injuries' to the ani-
mal apparently caused by
someone who had "been
excessively violent with
it," the report from the vet
also stated.

department to increase its fire-fighting capabilities.

West Sebring Volunteer Fire

Dept. adds off-road capabilities


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The West Sebring
Volunteer Fire Rescue has had a new state-
of-the-art utility vehicle (and OHV or Off-
Highway Vehicle) in service since Feb. 1.
Last year, Chief Scott Mann asked the
operations and engineering divisions of the
department.to develop an apparatus to add
to the fleet that would improve the service
capabilities of the department. The depart-
ment received assistance from Fire Services
Director Tim Eures, as well as the county
Road and Bridge mechanic "Bubba" Benton
in completing this project and would like to
extend its thanks for their help. with this
project.
In early 'January, the department took
delivery of a 2010 Polaris 6x6 from GHC
Motorsports in Lake Placid, as well as a
skid unit that is equipped with a 75-gallon
water tank, foam tank, fire pump and back
board station from Kimtech.
"This apparatus will improve our overall
capabilities by allowing us to reach areas
that were previously inaccessible by. our
fleet, allowing us to rescue patients and
fight fires where we could not get to
before," Mann said.
The vehicle will be known as Utility 9
and will respond to any situation as deemed
necessary.
Mann would like to thank the members
that put in the time necessary to complete

Sun 'N Lake's new clubhouse

concerns addressed by builder


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING. Michael
Dunn, vice president of
Lodge Construction,
addressed the Sun 'N Lake
Board of Supervisors this
week regarding the recently
completed Sun 'N Lake Golf
Clubhouse.
The discussion focused on
a handful of minor issues
brought up regarding the new
clubhouse at a recent Sun 'N
Lake public meeting just
more than two weeks ago.
Dunn's remarks covered a
wide range of topics in the
90-minute discussion, but
focused on a specific area of
concern by the board regard-
ing window specifications
and noise levels in the new
clubhouse.
"Our team worked incredi-
bly hard to meet the goals of
the project for the district
and I wanted to come down
here personally and sit and
discuss the project with the
board of supervisors," Dunn
said.
After a lengthy conversa-
tion on the insulation and
thickness of the window,
specifications, it was appar-
ent that the windows met the
standards specified in the,
permitted plans.
In fact, the installed win-,
dows saved the district
approximately $60,000,
which was part of the total
savings to date of $117,000.
Dunn explained the deci-
sion to go with 3/16-inch
glass, meeting the standards
in the permitted plans, rather
than 1/4-inch, "Florida tem-
peratures, unlike other areas
of the country, do not fluctu-
ate more than 10-20 degrees
. a day and insulation provides
no benefit in keeping heat or
cold out.
"It does not add any ener-
gy savings or' real value to
the project."
Dunn explained that cost
recoupment is based on a 10-

year return on the investment
and the current windows will
accomplish that. More
expensive windows would
have taken much longer to
recoup the added cost and
because there is no added
value, were not installed.
"The glare is most likely a
temporary issue because of
the position of the sun at var-
ious times during the year,"
Dunn continued.
"The overhang of the
porch roof was specifically
designed to eliminate a
strong sun penetrating the
window. If this continues to
be a concern blinds or tinting
are excellent solutions."
Sun 'N Lake officials
acknowledged that while
there are minor issues to
resolve, the extent of dis-
pleasure with Lodge

Construction and the overall
outcome of the project may
have been overstated, noting
that they were certain the
identified issues would be
professionally and appropri-
ately handled.
While a representative
from the architectural firm
was not present, it was noted
that The Evans Group spent a
lot of time ensuring the dis-
trict received the best return
on investment in the func-
tionality of the golf' club-
house.
Board President Daye
Halbig said, "I have all the
confidence- in the world in
Lodge Construction doing
the best they can in the inter-
est of the community."
He added, "increased comr-
munication between t' e
board- and the construction
management team on
changes would help them
(the board) fully understand
the important matters."
With regard to the noise
level, an acoustic engineer
conducted reverberation tests
at the golf clubhouse on Feb.
11. The consultant will devel-
%p an acoustical model, ana-
lyze the test data and develop
recommendations.
Results will be presented
within two weeks:

TODAY'S LETTERS


Mankind's love affair
with war
Editor:
Say it with love or ... say
it with words. Propaganda is
the greatest weapon in any
war. The saying that the pen
is mightier than the sword is
.very true.
If you could control the
"hearts and minds of
mankind, there would be no
wars. War is the insanity of
the human race. There are nc
winners, only loss of life anc
property. If left unchecked,
.it will exterminate mankind
from this planet called Earth
The time is short for
mankind to have a change of
heart and mind.

'cemetery, but it isn't.
Located in the

.near Bushnell, it covers
.more than 500 acres. Since
being established on June 1,
1988, more than 100,000
veterans have been buried in
this beautiful setting that
'God has created for our hon-
ored men and women who
served our nation in both
:war and peace. As a veteran
'of the Korean War, it was an
honor to walk amongst those
who gave all for the freedom
that we enjoy each and every
day.
As you. walk amongst the
.white stones, each one has
its own history like a time
capsule. While we were
there, six military services
,were being conducted. We
.were fortunate to be visiting
a friend's niche where he
and his wife's cremains have
been placed. At that very
moment a full service was
being conducted in the same
area and Taps was being
played. We stopped, came to
attention, and saluted our
comrade who was joining
the fraternity of brave men
and women.
It is very hard to explain
how one feels at that very
moment, tears will come to
your eyes and, at that
moment, I was proud to be
one who served as well as to
be an American.

We have a lot to be thank-.
ful for in our great nation
and I feel that regardless
God is still in control. To
you, the American veteran, I
salute you and thank you for
our freedom and this great
land. The old saying "Thank
a veteran" means a lot to
those still alive. Have you
thanked one of our hero's
lately? By the way, I am
proud to be an American.

A Korean veteran

New union president
crosses the line
Editor's Note: This letter is
the conclusion of an earlier
letter printed in December.
Editor:
Fortunately, not everyone
went along with Trumka's
reasoning. In 1994 a federal
jury found mine workers cap-
tain Jerry Dale Lowe guilty
of conspiracy and weapons
charges relating to York's
death. By then York's widow
had filed a $27 million
wrongful death suit against
the union naming Trumka
and several other UMW offi-
cials as codefendants.
Trumka and his affiliates
fought the suit every step of
the way claiming Lowe was
innocent, but in 1997 federal
prosecutors released evidence
from Lowe's criminal trial to
Mrs. York's attorney. UMW
lawyers decided to settle.
Even after leaving his
union presidency for the post
of secretary/treasurer,
Trumka gave a nod and a
wink to union sponsored vio-
lence. In 1998, Trumka and
his successor came to
Pennsylvania to explain


UMW's position. Several
dozen dissenters showed up
to protest; Trumka's lobbyist
showed up too, unimpressed
with their opponent's right t6"
free speech. Within minutes,
a group of officials and
workers attacked protecting
miners, ripping leaflets and
protest.signs from their
hands, several being
punched, knocked to the
ground and kicked repeatedly
- one suffered a large gash in
the head from a hit with a
piece of lumber.
Trumka refused to answer
questions about the assault.
Though these events hap-
pened in the '90s, there is no
reason to think Trumka
would react differently today,
never apologizing legal or
not. His denunciation of mob
rule by opponents of
Obama's health plan lacks
moral consistency, having no
objections to mob rules as
long 'as unions make the
rules.
He's also been involved in
money laundering schemes
among half a dozen totaling
$885,000 to help re-elect
International Brotherhood of
Teamsters General President
Ron Carey in 1996, which
was invalidated. The'
Teamsters had been under
federal oversight since 1989,
which resulted in an out-of-'
court settlement disqualifying
Carey from holding office.
The union's special election
officer, Kenneth Conboy,
concluded Trumka had laun-
dered $50,000 from the union
through the AFI-CIO to a
political advocacy group,
which in turn routed
$100,000 of the money to
Carey's campaign.
Conboy also concluded
Trumka had illegally partici-.
pated in an arrangement
either contributing or solicit-
ing $50,000 to bank roll


Carey's campaign.
In 2004, National Legal
and Policy Center filed a
complaint with the discipli-
nary board 6f the
Pennsylvania Supreme Court
requesting Trumka be dis-
barred, though unsuccessful
the complaint was rooted in
sound finding of facts. Carey
was removed from the
Teamsters along with several
associates, including
Teamsters Political Director
Bill Hamilton, who either
pleaded guilty or were con-
victed by trial. Trumka was
not asked to testify, indicat-
ing beforehand he would take
the Fifth Amendment if sub-
poenaed; he was not in a
talkative mood. His boss,
John Sweeney, took his
place, telling the committee
he did not believe Trumka
would knowingly participate
in a money laundering
scheme of union money to
campaign for a candidate for
a union office.
Union membership is well
down from what it has been.
Trumka has some definite
ideas to raise those numbers
seeking an expansion of
AFL-CIO voter registration
and get out the vote drives,
determined to step up mem-
bership among younger
workers through outreach
programs to college students
and recent graduates. He has
appointed AFL-CIO
Secretary Treasurer Liz
Shuler, 39, a point person for
this mission, announcing
plans to build a strike force'
of 1,000 young adults as a
rapid response team during
organizing drives; knowing
his methods of persuasion, he
has an onerous quality in this
regard, he could succeed. I
truly hope not.

First, I want to point out
that there are a lot of things
I enjoy about my laptop. It's
a great tool for writing, nice
for viewing DVDs or keep-
ing in touch with friends.
However, I was forced to
deal with something far less
enjoyable when it came to
my laptop a few days ago. It
involves the dreaded "R"
word reformat.
For the blessed unknow-
ing, the term reformatt" in
reference to a computer
means wiping everything off
the hard drive. For the tech-
nologically clueless, a com-
puter hard drive is the part
of your computer that holds
all your stuff. Your pictures,
Aunt Mary's meatloaf
recipe, all that e-mail you
haven't read yet all on the
hard drive. And with a refor-
mat, it all goes away.
So, you might ask, why on
Earth would someone will-
ingly wipe everything off
*their hard drive? What
would drive someone to such
an act?
Well, I resisted it for a
while. But my laptop was
starting to act stupidly. It
started taking forever to boot
up and do stuff. This got irri-
tating.
Also, over the past two or
three years, a lot of pro-
grams have come and gone
over that hard drive. The
ones I get rid of occasionally
leave little bits of them-
selves behind on the hard
drive sort of like a badly
trained puppy.
These bits can make a
computer do unpleasant
things, like slow down or
stop working for no apparent
reason. This makes for a
cranky computer user. And
sooner or later, it drives
someone to the desperate
move of reformatting.
Now I wasn't a total idiot.
I made sure that important
things, such as my writing,
pictures and a few saved
game files were copied to
different places so I could
put them on the nicely
cleaned hard drive. I had
been assured by several peo-
ple that reformatting a hard
drive is a simple and pain-
less process.
Well, they were 50 percent
correct. Maybe closer to 30
percent.
It was simple in the sense

that a' few clicks of the
mouse wiped my hard drive
squeaky clean and rein-
stalled Windows Vista (I'm
not installing Windows 7 yet
I'm waiting to see if it
makes someone's computer
explode first).
Simplicity ended after
that. For one thing, the
Windows operating system
apparently needed about a
gazillion updates to get it
back into running form. This
meant I spent a lot of time
watching my computer
install invisible programs'
and then telling me to restart
the laptop.
(Question: How many
Windows jokes are there?
Answer: None. They're all
true!)
Now of course I didn't
only have to reinstall
Windows. I had to reinstall a
number of other programs.
For example, I use the pro-
gram Word to write. This
had to be put back on the
hard drive, and as I sat down
to put together this column I
realized the "recount" button
was missing.
This is a very important
button to me. It tells me how
many words a document is.
For example, right now it
says this column is 508
words long. Which tells me
I'd better finish it up.fast
before it gets too big.
When I set up Word a long
time ago, I made sure the
"recount" button was right
where I could click on it.
Well, thanks to the reformat,
Word forgot I liked that but-
ton and I had to track it
down all over again. This
took time I could've been
using doing something more
constructive, such as play
Mafia Wars.
There's been a lot of other
hassles with this, but I have
to admit the laptop is run-
ning better. It makes it
almost worth the pain. Just
don't ask me to do it again
any time soon.

In his speech, Davison
spoke about several African-
American leaders who have
rhade a difference but have
riot experienced the attention
that Martin Luther King Jr.
liad, such as Shirley
'Chisholm, the first African-
American woman to be elect-
ed to congress.
But Davison also spoke
about Florida laws called
"Black Codes" designed to
6ppress African-Americans
despite the call for freedom
and equality,
S"Right here in Avon Park,
we had City Ordinance 46,
which legally segregated
blacks .and whites," Davison
said.
: According to Davison,
City Ordinance 46 read "It
shall be unlawful for any
white person to settle in any
portion of Marsh's
Subdivision. It shall be
unlawful for any colored per-
son to settle in any part of
Avon Park e.cept. for,
Marsh's Subdivision."; ,
-"It is time for us to recog-
riize our own strength and
shortcomings," Davison said.
'"We need to address all deci-
sions with compassion and-
friendship. The paradox is.
that only by giving away
compassion and friendship
do we get to keep them for
ourselves."

going to two causes:

Steve Van Dam, who

begin when he was asked
how the evening was
unfolding.
"The big things," he said
finally, "are the support we

out to make it a fun event.
Then there are the kids who

He paused just a second
then added, "And that the
school allows us to put on
this event."
He smiled, "We started
out with a couple of crock
pots in the art room, and
now we take over the cafe-"
teria."
Last year,'he said, the stu-
dents' raised $5,000. This
year's final figures won't be
known until Tuesday, but
there was a steady line of
people and Van Dam was
optimistic.
"Make sure people under-

Cecil Perry (left) and Robert Massey (right) came to the rescue recently when a man
lost a treasured ring in the newspaper recycling bin at Max Long Field and they took
the time to climb in and find it.


Ring lost, then found,

She gave Sarchioto
Reed's name and contact
numbers. "That's when
kismet provided the next
impetus," Baker said.
Sarchioto called Reed at
*hei* office and explained his
situation.
Reed called her staff
while Sarchioto was still on
the line, arranging for Cecil
Perry to meet him at the
recycle bin as quickly as
possible.
Within 15 minutes Perry
and Robert Massey, a Con-
tract worker from Sunshine
Staff Leasing, joined
Sarchioto there.
"It was an eye-opener,"
Sarchioto said. "I was
astonished. (Massey)
opened up the bin, backed
his pick-up to the door
(entered the container) and
began to shake out newspa-
pers one by one as he
moved them from the bin to
the back of his truck."
:"It was like looking for a
needle in a haystack,"
Massey said.
. Massey who was will-
ing to stay until the con-
tainer was empty had
intended to say a prayer


'It was like
looking for a
needle in a
haystack'

ROBERT MASSEY
county employee

before beginning his
search, but in the final rush
had forgotten.
Now as he worked, he
remembered and quickly
said a prayer.
The amen had hardly left
his lips when, to everyone's
great surprise, he found a
ring.
"Is this 'it?" he asked
Sarchioto, holding it up for
him to see.
It was.
"I nearly fell over,"
Sarchioto said, beside him-
self with'joy.
"We were happy to help,"
Reed said. "This wasn't the
first time (someone had lost
something of value in the
recycling bins).
"We've found wallets
with cash and once a valid
check for $25,000 from
another government
agency."


in paper bin
Perry agrees. ...
"I've been called out
four or five times," he said.
"People lose their glasses,
mail, credit cards and cell
phones. But this is the first
time we ever found any-
thing that I remember.' ,.
Reed wants everyone to
know that county employ-
ees often go above and
beyond the call of duty.
"I've worked for the
county and state for 37
years, mostly with the
county," she said, "and it
has always been like a fam-
ily."
She added that the public
tends to slam all county
workers when it is only a
tiny minority that create
problems.
"We do try hard, espe-
cially in a situation like
Tom's," Reed said,
As for Sarchioto, he not
only bought a thank-you
card for Perry and Massey,
but has sent a second one to
the Board of Couiny .
Commissioners so they..
would know how far these
public employees went to
help a citizen. ..
Even so, "I cannot '. '.
express my gratitude," he
said.

Lake Placid's Deta Waller sets to send this forehand back
over the net in her 6-0, 6-1 match win Thursday.

Dragons serve up win


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID The
spring seasons have begun, in
case the chilly conditions
cast any doubt, and the Lady
Dragon tennis squad got
theirs underway in fine fash-
ion, taking a 6-1 win over
LaBelle Thursday high-
lighted by the #2 doubles
match which finished under
the lights with a 10-8 tie-
breaker.
Lake Placid saw wins from
the top three singles, as
Jessica Landers took a 6-2, 6-
2 match from Karina Barron,
Jalitza Serrano went 6-1, 6-1,
over K.C. Lynn and Deta
Waller won 6-0, 6-1 over
Candy Rodreguez.
Weslee Davis made things
tough at #4 singles, but fell


6-3, 6-2 to Brenda
DeSantiago.
She was quickly picked up,
however, as Johneesia Sholtz
took the #5 match, 6-1, 6-4
over Kelli Martinez. *
The #1 doubles team of
Landers and Waller took a 6-
3, 6-3 win over Barron and
Rodreguez, setting the stage
for the climactic match at #2.
Serrano and Davis teamed
up and fought back from a 6-
3 opening loss to Lynn and
DeSantiago to take the sec-
ond set 6-1 as the sunlight
began to fade and the floures-
cent glow took hold.
Tied at 6-6 in the third set,
point after point were traded,
increasing the drama before
the Lady Dragon duo pulled
out the 10-8 tie-breaker.

match of the State Championship in Lakeland. Hubbard won again Saturday to reach the 160-pound championship.


Two more medals secured


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKELAND The short
but storied history of Avon
Park wrestling is still being
told in terms of its' success-
es..
This fifth, and latest,
chapter has its' main charac-
ters, Charles Hubbard ':and
Omar Torres, the latest in
the five-year run of state
qualifiers.
And as of the opening of
competition Saturday morn-
ing, both had assured them-'
selves of bringing medals
home.
Hubbard took the easy
route, going '2-0 during
Friday's competition, while
Torres had to grapple
through a wrestleback
Friday night and another
early Saturday to reach the


medal round.
"I've seen guys get to
state and change the way
they wrestle," Avon Park co-
coach Lee Elder said. "They
get. here and think that
because everyone is so
good, that they have to do
something different. As long
as Charles wrestles the way
he has all year, he'll do
well."
Do well he did, on the
first day, pinning Evan Lipp
of Lemon Bay 36 seconds
into the second period
before taking a tad longer to
take down Fryland Sanon of
Key West, getting the pin at
1:04 of the second period.
This being Hubbard's sec-
ond straight year reaching
state, the junior was a lot
more confident this time


around.
"Last year, I was so nerv-
ous, I felt like my feet were
in cement," he said Friday
night. "But I got a win, so I
knew I belonged here and
realized it was just like any
other-tournament, just a lot
harder."
Torres, making his first
trip to state, wasted little
time in showing he
belonged, pinning
Benjamin's Scott Ficker in
just 58 seconds'.
But it was early in his
next match against South
Fort Myers Derek Crow that
a potential injury threatened
his chances.
A Crow takedown saw
Torres' head land hard, and
awkwardly, on the mat, his.
right hand shooting out


immediately, holding up his
forefinger to. signal some-
thing was wrong.
"He's had some back and
neck problems this year,"
Elder said.
After being given a look-
over by the medic on hand,
Torres was ready to contin-
ue, but Crow was building a
big lead when the injury
recurred, to a lesser extent,
during the second period.
A listless final period did
little to dig into the lead and
Crow moved on with a 14-7
win.
"It's his senior year and
his last shot at earning a
medal," co-coach Ed Brown
said after the match. "But as
I tell the boys, it's a lot like
life. Everything's not going

triumph in the waning seconds of the Red Devils win over
Tampa Catholic Thursday night.

real slick, and they were
telling me that they were
having problems handling the
ball," Clemons said.
"Man, that ball was slick
for the first half. We had to
keep trying to wipe it off,"
said Avon Park forward
Alonzo Robertson. "But we
have been practicing hard all
week, and the coach told this
there was no way we were
going to lose this game with
as hard as we worked this
week."
Robertson pulled down 14
points by the end of the game
for the Devils, just one point
behind the team's leading
netter Reggie Baker, who had
15.
The half ended with an
indicator that the tide was
turning .for the Devils when
outside assassin Avierre
Connor sunk a three pointer


Tuesday
at the buzzer, leaving the
score 24-23 Connor ended
the night with 10 points.
Avon Park hit the pave-
ment hard in the second half,
turning Robertson loose in
the third on the inside, and
pressed the Crusaders into
making enough offensive
mistakes to leave the Devils
10 points out front, 40-30, at
the start of the fourth.
-But Tampa Catholic would
not let the Devils extend
their lead in the last period
and fought back to- within
two buckets by the end of the
fourth led by the outside hit-
ting of David Gonzalez.
Gonzalez would cap a
game high 22 points before
the clock ran out, hitting five
from the three zone.
The Devils take their game
on the road again Tuesday,
facing Berkeley Prep, who
downed Mulberry 63-53.

With him down to what
could have been his last
match, Torres did bounce
back up, pinning Coral
Shores' Will Mulkeen in
2:02 and keeping his hopes
alive into Saturday morning.
The stakes were, perhaps,
amped up even more, with
Torres now just one win
away from securing a spot in
the medal round, as well as
one loss away from going
home empty-handed.
The same could be said of
Miami Edison's Walquns
Hyppolite, but then no story
is complete without an
antagonist, and Hyppolite
would have to fill the role of
the villain, given the cir-
cumstance.
Torres rose to the occa-
sion again, getting the fall at
the 1:58 mark and earn him
no worse than sixth in state.
"Once you get to the
medal round, it's like play-
ing with house money,"
Elder said. "You know

Devils outswing Dragons in six


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK The Red
Devils downed Lake Placid
11-1 in six Friday night at
Head Field as the reg-
ular season gets
underway with the
conclusion of the Bill |
Jarrett Ford Early Lakei
Bird Tournament.
Avon Park's Dylan
Heiring started the
game for the Devils
and threw five solid innings,
giving up one run, one hit
and getting nine strike-outs.
"Dylan gives us a chance
every time he steps out
there. He's a leader," Avon


Park head coach Whit
Cornell said. "He's a big kid-
with a good arm, and pitches
a good game."
The Devils picked up
n Park eight hits, most of
them in the fourth,
1 and Avon Park's Josh
Gordon led the Big
Placid Red Offense with a
two-run homer in the
third off Lake Placid's
Dylan Callahan.
"These things hap-
pen with as many new faces
as we have this year. I have
six player are playing varsi-
ty for the first time, with this
many new faces, you are


going to see good games and
bad games," Lake Placid
head coach Dan Coomes
said. "But I am confident
that these younger kids will
grow, they just react differ-
ently to certain situations."
Lake Placid's one run
came in the third inning
when Callahan batted in
Mario Gonzalez.
The Dragons struggled the
rest of the night, giving up
eight hits, 11 runs and five
errors, but Coomes was still
optimistic about the season.
"Dylan threw just 76
pitches in five innings.
That's not bad. Our defense


struggled, but that happens
with so many new faces out
there," hd said.
The Devils, on the other
hand, had plenty of experi-
ence on their side.
"These are great group of
guys this year, and we are
having a good time and
some success already"
Cornell said. "Offense is our
strength, and we did well
offensively in the fall. Our
game plan is to make them
make a play. I am happy to
see our kids hit the ball and
force the other team to make
a mistake. That's our game
plan."

Q: HOW ACCURATE ARE
THESE HEALTH SCREENINGS?
A. Our adherence to stringent
protocol, highly trained sonographers,
state-of-the-art ultrasound machines,
and board certified interpreting
radiologists make the screenings
exceedingly accurate.
Physician written protocols ensure
consistency and accuracy.

Q: WHY SHOULD I HAVE
THESE TESTS IF I HAVE
NO SYMPTOMS?
A. Unfortunately, our body's
warning signs often come too late.
It is important to have a screening
to identify problems before
symptoms arise, potentially avoiding
a serious health crisis. Ultrasound
can also find smaller & more curable
cancers which drastically increases
treatment success rate.

give thanks. Why should God give us our

Organic matter in the soil is what makes plants healthy


The golden
rule of gardening
says, "If you
f treat your soil
well, it will treat
your plants
S well." Healthy,
" | <', fertile soil is a
-.:' mixture of water,
air, minerals, and
News From organic matter.
The In soil, organic
Watershed matter consists of
SCorine Burgess plant and animal
material that is in
I-the process of decomposing. When
jt has fully decomposed it is called
,humus. This humus is important
for soil structure because it holds
.individual mineral particles togeth-
er in clusters. Ideal soil has a gran-
uilar, crumbly structure that allows
water to drain through it, and
.allows oxygen and carbon dioxide
to move freely between spaces
within the soil and the air above.
- Successful gardening depends on
good soil. One of the best ways to
improve soil fertility is to add
organic matter. It helps soil hold
important plant nutrients. By
adding organic matter to sandy
soil, you improve the ability of the

soil to retain water. In a clay soil,
humus will loosen the soil to make
it more crumbly. You can increase
the organic matter in your garden
by adding compost or applying
rrulch.
Application of organic matter to


the soil adds carbon, which pro-
motes the growth of beneficial bac-
teria, which increases the likeli-
hood of hearty plants. Another ben-
. efit is when crops grow and
demand more nutrients, added
organic matter can be used as plant


food.
Remember that every time you
disturb soil by turning or tilling,
oxygen also is added to the soil.
This increases microbial activity,
which feeds on organic matter.
Therefore, soil disturbance carl
decrease the soil's organic matter
reserves and should be kept to a
minimum.
Adding compost to your soil is
easy. Simply save your organic
waste from the kitchen and yard.
Then you have several methods to
choose from. You can purchase or
construct a home composer, start a
pile or a compost bin. Check out
instructions on composting on line
or give us a call at (863) 402-6545
for more information. Whatever the
method, composting adds much
needed nutrients to your soil, helps
your plants to grow up healthier
and more beautiful and costs your
little or nothing.
Scientists have been researching
the benefits of organic material for
decades. They have found that
plant deficiency diseases usually
are less severe in soils that are well
supplied with organic matter. This
not only increases the vigor of the
plants, butvarious soil micro-

There's a lot to get done this week, Taurus


Aries (March 21-April 20) It's hard
to smile when you are feeling down, but
you have to project an air of happiness
this week, Aries. Don't worry, things
will turn around in a few days.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) There's a
lot to get done this week, Taurus, and
not too much time in which to complete
it. Asking for help isn't a sign of weak-
ness, but the smart thing to do.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) You have
to choose between friends and it won't
be easy to do so, Gemini. Relationships
are in turmoil and you are the grounding
factor. There is time for joy on
Thursday, however.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) It's hard
to be romantic when you don't schedule
time to be with the one you love,
Cancer. Devotion to that special some-
one should be at the top of your mind.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Don't worry
about your health, Leo, because the stars
point to a strong start to the new year.
As long as you eat a balanced diet, you
will be benefitting yourself.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) You will

feel closer to someone other than your
family this week, Virgo. It's OK to
spend time away from home if you need
a change of scenery once in a while.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -
Recreational activities will fill your cal-
endar, Libra. You are a-buzz with ener-
gy and social commitments. Fortunately
you have energy to spare this week.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) A change
of heart has you reconsidering a prior
decision. Think it over very carefully,
Scorpio, because you won't get another
chance at doing it right.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Take
care not to condescend to someone close
to you, Sagittarius. You are not at an
advantage over this person. In fact, it
could be quite the opposite. Work mat-
ters take precedence.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Social


obligations .are piling up, but you may
not be in the mood to participate,
Capricorn. That's because you desire
some alone time. Get through this week
and then you'll be rewarded.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) Look at
your situation from a different angle,
Aquarius. It could shed new, light on a

BOREDOM BUSTER 1l: KNITTING WITH A TIN CAN


Reconmiended by contributing crafter
Nicole Blun and daughter, Ava. 10.
Working with bright, fuzzy yam is the
perfect antidote to gray, blustery weather, as
Ava and I found out when we del ed into
the world of tin can knitting. First, we
assembled simple, homemade versions of
. the Knitting Nancy. or spool knitter, then we
put them to use with pretty yarn. looping the
strands around the nails. Ava enjoyed exper-
imenting with different techniques. At first,
she completed each knit stitch by easing the
finished loop off of the nail using a bamboo
skewer, but then she tried using her fingers
instead. When we'd knitted tubes about 6 or
8 inches long. we started dreaming up
things to make with them. Wrist warmers,
cat toys, doll hats ... we came up with a long
list of warm and woolly possibilities.
Our tips: . ,
You can use a tin can of just about
any size (a larger can produces a wider tube
and looser stitches), but make sure it has
identical top an bottom lips.
: Try vting .lky-weight yarn. which is
easier and quicker for kids to work with.
'- When we uted very fuzzy yarn, a few
strands sometimes lingered on the nail after
the yarn was, looped over. I just snipped
these stragglers with a pair of scissors.
To make a tin can knitter:
*Can opener
Clean 15-ounce can
: Duct tape
,12 (8d 21/2-inch) finish nails
Permanent maker
1. Use the can opener to remove the
can's top and bottom.
2. With a strip of duct tape, secure a nail
to the outside of the can so that its head is


1 1/2 inches above the top rim. Tape a second
nail directly opposite the first, then evenly
space 10 more nails around the rim.
3. Apply small strips of tape between
each nail to cover the top rim, then fold a
strip over the bottom rim.
4. With permanent marker, number the
nails I to 12.
To make the mouse shown above:
n Yamr
Tin can knitter
' Scissors"
Yam needle E
. Fiberfill ,
, Pink felt
9 Tacky glue
t 2 small buttons
1. Knit a 6-inch-long tube
and bind it off (to learn how, watch our
instructional video at FamilyFun.com/
magazine). Cut the tube from the remain-
ing yarn ball, leaving a 4-inch tail. Pull the
tail tight to close the hole. Thread the tail
onto the yam needle, sew through your
knitting a few times to secure the closure,
then knot the tail's end.
2. Stuff the tube with fiberfill from the
other end. Thread the other tail (the yarn's
starting point, where you first wrapped it
onto the knitter) onto the needle. Run the
needle through: loops on opposite sides of
the tube's open end to close it. Sew
through your knitting a few times to secure
the closure, then trim the yarn.
3. Cut felt as shown for the ears and
nose. To make the whiskers, knot together
two 3-inch lengths of yarn at their centers.
Glue the whiskers to the nose, then glue the
features in place, pinching the bottom edge
of each ear. Add the buttons for eyes.

Innovative software has trans-
formed the labor-intensive process that
brought the world "Gumby" and \
"Wallace & Gromit" into one simple
enough for a family to enjoy, as we
discovered one drizzly day when I '
downloaded a stop-motion animation
program to our home computer. We
plugged a digital video camera into the
computer, scrounged a collection of
props (mostly lollipops and pretzel
sticks), sketched out a storyline, and
started shooting. The inexpensive soft-
ware allowed the kids to see immediate


results as we*manipulated the objects.
In fact, it kept them s6 engaged that
our animated short could have easily
turned into a full-length feature. The
kids titled our mini-masterpiece
"Lollipop Tree" and begged to watch it
over and over. Then they ate the props.:
Our tips:
P Stop-motion animation programs
are compatible with most digital video
cameras and some digital still cameras
(check before you download). I had to
adjust my camera's settings from HDI
to DV before beginning.
For a more professional look,
we set our camera on a tripod and
shot against a flat, brightly lit sheet
of white paper. '

BOREDOM BUSTER *3:
GROWING A CRYSTAL TREE
Recommended by senior editor Debra .
Immergut and son, Joe, 11.
Science experiments are commonplace
in our house, where my son has filled an
attic "lab" with mysterious shampoo-based;.
potions sealed in old jars. But few of these
projects, Joe and I agree, have'been as
rewarding as the crystal-tree propagation.
Making the cardboard bases and setting
them in a salt solution took just a few min-
utes. A day later, we were astounded by the
mass of tiny crystals forming along the -
tree's branches as the cardboard wicked up
the solution. Two days later, we had a tiny
enchanted forest, each tree fat with bristly
spikes. Joe's lab report: "It was worth the '
wait it was amazing!"
Our tips:
The magic ingredient here is bluing, a
nontoxic, old-fashioned laundry whitening
product that helps the crystals form. We
used Mrs. Stewart's Bluing, which we
picked up at the supermarket. To find it at a
store near you, visit mrsstewart.com.
Just for fun, we squirted some green
food coloring on one of the cardboard
bases before placing it in the bowl. The
coloring was absorbed into the crystals,
tinting them green, yellow and blue.
Our trees lasted about a week before
they started to crumble. We tossed them in
the trash when they were done (all of the
ingredients are safe to discard).-
To make a crystal tree:
Thin shirt cardboard
.- Scissors
4, Deep saucer or small bowl
"' Small jar with a tight-fitting lid
1 tablespoon table salt
1 tablespoon bluing
S'/2 tablespoon household
ammonia
1. To create the base, cut two
cardboard tree shapes (about 4 inches tall
and 3 inches across at the widest point).
Cut a 2-inch slot in the top of one shape
and in the base of the other. Join the shapes
at the slots and stand the tree in a deep
saucer or a small bowl.
2, In the jar, combine 1 tablespoon
water, the salt, bluing and ammonia (han-
dling ammonia is a parent's job). Fasten the
lid and shake well, then pour the solution
into the saucer or bowl.
3. Leave the tree undisturbed. Crystals
may take as little as an hour or as long as a
day to begin to form, depending on the
humidity in your home (they'll grow better
in drier air). The tree will keep growing for
days, until all of the liquid evaporates.

Recommended by editorial director Ann
Hallock and kids, Sarah, 5, and Nat, 8.
My kids and I love making crafif, particularly
the kind that Sarah calls "make-it-however-you-
like projects." That's why we have this clay
recipe taped to the back of our cornstarch box. It
takes about five minutes to "cook," and the
resulting cncoction is warm and pliable and the
perfect consistency for kneading, modeling and
embellishing with stuck-on odds and ends.
Recently, making the clay and the creatures filled
an entire empty afternoon and seemed to inspire

OM-BUSTER #4: SCULPTING CORNSTARCH-CLAY CREATURES


that dreamy state kids can get into with open-
ended projects: "Maybe this guy should be .
Frankenstein ... these beads are his monster eyes
... what should his arm be?" The sculptures dried
to a hard, pearly finish, and our countertop is nob
populated with a one-of-a-kind menagerie of *
aliens, animals, snowmen and robots. ;
Our tips:
This recipe yields enough for two kids to
each make a sculpture or two, but if friends are
over (as they often are on winter weekends), def-


initely double the ingredient amounts.
Put out decorative "stick-ons" in little
bowls or paper cups. Fun embellishments, as
shown here, include sequins, tacks, keys, cup
hooks, soda-can tabs, nuts, bolts, washers and
screws. The end piece from a lamp pull-chain
makes anice bell to hang on a reindeer's neck.
A cookie sheet covered with waxed paper
can serve as a drying rack (sculptures take a few
days to harden).
O


To make cornstarch clay:
4 2/3 cup salt
- V3 cup baking soda
4 '/2 cup cornstarch
1. In a small saucepan, mix the salt and bak-
ing soda with ./3 cup of water and bring to a boil.
2. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch
and 1/4 cup of water and stir well.
3. When the salt mixture boils, remove it
from the heat and add the cornstarch mixture.
Stir vigorously for a minute or two to thicken the
clay. Spoon it onto a sheet of waxed paper and
allow it to cool before working with it.
