Two dead, dozens injured in charter bus crash


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING -Two fatalities
have been confirmed by the
Florida Highway Patrol in the
charter bus crash that
occurred at 2:15 p.m.
Monday afternoon on U. S.
27 at the intersection with
Lake Francis Road.
The bus, chartered by
South Florida Community
College for its Exploritas
program, was traveling north,
returning from a tour of the
Lake Placid murals at the
time of the crash.
FHP Lt. Chris Miller con-
firms that Alice J. Adams, 81,
a resident of Lake Placid,
was driving east on Lake
Francis Road in a 2010 red
Mercury when she attempted
to enter the northbound lanes
of U. S. 27.
At this time it is unclear
why Adams failed to yield
the right of way to the bus.
Larry L. Metzer, 69,, the
bus driver, attempted to
avoid the Mercury, but the
front right of the car struck
the left side of the bus. That
blow caused the bus to veer
off onto the east shoulder of
the highway where it over-
turned into a ditch.
This resulted in the ejec-
tion of several passengers
and there %\ere e\tensi\e
injuries..
.Thirty-two people, includ-
ing the driver, were on the
bus at the time of the crash.'
Only one person was not
transported to a hospital.
Two were pronounced
dead at the scene, three had
critical injuries and the rest
had serious to minor injuries.
Aeromed and Bay Life were
two of the several companies'
providing helicopter evacua-
tion. At least five helicopters
picked up victims.
Becky 'Rousch, who directs
community education for'
SFCC, was on the bus.
Deborah Bell, spokesper-
son for SFCC, reports
Rousch is resting comfort-
ably and recovering.

AP budget in

better condition
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK According to City Finance
Director Renee Green, Avon Park is in 'good
condition for the first quarter where the budget
is concerned.
"To make it very clear, at this time there are
not going to be any layoffs," Green said. "I feel
that the city is in good financial condition for
the first quarter."
But the city is not totally out of the woods
yet.
The Avon Park council received an update
from on the budget during its meeting Monday
night.
During her presentation, Green mapped out.
where each city fund was in relation to their
budget at 25 percent of the year.
One unexpected windfall came from a con-
tract with AT&T, which installed two antennas

Elvis Wade, an Elvis Presley impersonator, leans forward to sing directly tp Special
STARS athlete Sharon Leonard who is in awe of his presence. Elvis Wade made an
appearance Monday at Ridge Area Arc to meet and greet staff and consumers as well as
sing a few songs. He will be doing a benefit concert Friday at Duffer's Sports Grille in
Sebring for Special STARS.


Elvis Wade melts some


hearts at Ridge Area Arc

Will have benefit show Friday night at Duffer's


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK It was
the twinkle in her eyes that
brought tears to others as
they watched Sharon
Leonard stare in awe as
Elvis Wade sang a song to-
her Monday afternoon.
Leonard, who just had
surgery on her leg, sat qui-
etly in her wheelchair on
the workfloor at Ridge Area
Arc, patiently waiting for
Elvis Wade's arrival. The
rest of the room was
buzzing with enthusiasm as
several other individuals
with disabilities filled the
room to get a glimpse of -:
the famous performer.
Wade Cummings, a pro-
fessional Elvis Presley
impersonator who uses the
stage name Elvis Wade, did
arrive early to set up his
sound equipment, but not
early enough to beat the
crowd who could not wait
for this big moment in their
lives.
He was dressed very
casual when he first arrived
but even that disguise did
not fool the audience as
they cheered for him when
he walked in with his
equipment. Even a simple
sound check brought joy to
their ears.
"Check one, two, three,"
Cummings said over the
mic. The crowd clapped
and cheered.
He quickly sneaked back
outside to grab his bright
red jumpsuit adorned with a
gold-studded design. Staff
escorted him to a private
dressing room adjacent to
the performance area. In
minutes, he was dressed
and ready to go.
A brief introduction was
given and the crowd began
to roar as Elvis Wade
entered the room. decked
out in his bright shiny
attire.
Because of his hectic
concert schedules, he origi-
nally was only going to do
one song and pose for pic-
tures but the audience at
Arc won his heart and he
did five songs just for
them.
"They are so precious.
God must have a special


Special guest

Dr. Daniel Barth, who is a sci-
entist, teacher and writer, vis-
its Sebring Middle School last
Wednesday. He talked to a
combined class of advanced
English and science students.
Teachers Donna Tomlinson
and Connie Barteles want their
students to think outside the
box and learn how to use more
than one discipline at a time.
The students have been read-
ing Barth's futurist novel about
life on the Moon. His talk, part
motivational speech, and part
science lecture fascinated the
students, and Barth's enthusi-
asm was infectious.


place in heaven for them,"
Cummings said about peo-
ple with disabilities at Arc.
"They .have so few things to
look forward to that for me
to be just a part of some-
thing for them is a bless-
ing."
I Cummings has a very
special place in his heart for
people with disabilities. He
shared that his wife, Sandy
Posey, has a nephew named
'Joey who has Down syn-
drome. Cummings per-
formed for the national
Special Olympics four years
ago in Tennessee and made
:Joey a very special part of
that sho%\.
Whether he is on stage or
off, Elvis Wade is winning
hearts.
Frances Goff. an individ-
ual who receives services at
Arc, clasped her hands
together and gasped when
he began to sing. It didn't
take this tiny little lady long
to jump out of her seat and-
dance her way up in front
with Elvis Wade. The music
just moved her to dance
along with several others. -
"He sings real good,"
Goff said. "It makes me ,
dance." ..
Cummings agreed that
music is very therapeutic
and relaxes everyone.


"Music is a universal lan-
guage that can be used all
across the world."
Even for those like
Leonard, who could not
hear all the words to the
music because of a hearing
impairment. She still
enjoyed the presence of this
fine performer.
When Cummings bent.
down to sing personally to
Leonard, she gazed up into
his eyes as if she had met
the real King of Rock'n '
Roll. She was beaming with
a smile and her eyes were
twinkling with glee. After ,
he finished the song, she
put her tiny hands together
and clapped with approval.
Another Arc consumer
Lee Hughes could not wait
to walk up to Elvis Wade
and have his picture taken.
,He has been an Elvis
Presley fan for decades and
his bedroom at his Sebring
group home is testimony of
that. It is decorated with
Elvis pictures, posters,
-cups, collector plates, neck-
ties and figurines. He has
many of Elvis' movies and
songs.
"He even has a micro-
phone so when Elvis sings,
he sings along," said

proceeds 'on

foreclosures
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldrid-e@news.in .com
AVQN PARK.- Avon Park
is Iookin00 ;o foreclose on
some, ruliu n properties,
but only w b-.th is worth the
city's time financially.
Couricil voted 4-1 Monday
night 1o accept the recommen-
dations''of Interim 'Cit3
Manager Maria Sutherland to
start proceedings dn.homes at-
200 Ben Hicks St. and 12 E.
Palmetto St.
The properties, according
to Sutherland, are worth the
cit, taking the time to fore-
close, and force .a sale, iin
order to recoup the ioney
spent on cleaning -and taking
care of the properties and on
the legal fees.
"The city has spent over
$65,000 for clean-ups so far
this fiscal year. We need to get
these off the books so we are
not spending that anymore,"
Sutherland said.
After comparing the cost
for foreclosure compared to
the city's chance to get its
money back, Sutherland did
not recommend proceeding
with the legal option on four
other properties.
Councilman AlJoe Hinson
showed some hesitation on
the course recommended by
city staff, and asked if there
were other ways to deal with
the properties before he voted
no on the motion.
"Some of the buildings are
probably 80 years old. Don't
we have some sort of grant
funds in place for rehabilita-
tion?" Hinson asked .
Sutherland stated that there
were opportunities for grants
to help the .owners, but that
getting 'grants. for .historical
preservation did" not come
easy.' :
"It is a difficult process, but
we can look into it," she told
Hinson.
Hinson had stated earlier in
the meeting, concerning the
city's demolition practice,
that once the property was
bulldozed, there are few alter-
natives.
"I hate to see us just flatten
the Southside, and that's what
we seem to be doing here,"
Hinson said. "If they can redo
this building, then the council
should let these people redo
these buildings."
"I want to just let people
know that if we tear them
down, then nothing will get
built back there."

unlikely the landfill is producing As if that weren't enough, now coun-


ty officials intend to borrow money
from the solid waste fund until a small
loan can be arranged with a bank in
order to create a positive cash flow for
the asphalt plant.
Our concern, and sadly it reflects a
lack of trust in county officials, is that a
conscious effort has been under way to
hide the true costs from the county com-
mission and the taxpayers in an effort to
keep the plant alive.
We understand the idea behind build-
ing an asphalt plant.
The idea of using garbage-produced
fuel to make asphalt is an exciting one
and very forward thinking.
Having a successful asphalt plant also
gives the county flexibility in schedul-
ing projects, because needed material
will always be on hand, unlike when
depending on private vendors.
We are not, ,in other words, simply
anti-plant.
What we are against is covering up
mismanagement and blatant efforts to
duck difficult questions.
If in the end it turns out the county
really can produce quality asphalt
cheaper, we all benefit.
But without the courage to speak hon-
estly and correct mistakes openly, we
will never know.
Spin does not win when taxpayer
money is concerned.
We owe it to the plant to give it a
chance. It would be silly to throw out
the baby with the bath water.
Our point, however, is that without
accurate figures how can we tell the
baby from the water?


These past few weeks, all
eyes have been glued to the
television, watching the hor-
rific tragedy that occurred in
Haiti.
Already an impoverished
country, with 80 percent liv-
ing in poverty as of 2003,
the impact of this earthquake
only worsened living condi-
tions.
I happened to read an arti-
cle of a man who moved
from Haiti to New Orleans
because of the devastating
conditions, only to get hit by
Hurricane Katrina. Of.
course, he's more than will-
ing to return to Haiti to help
his fellow man. He knows
the trauma they are feeling.
.Due to global warming (as
well as "signs of the times"),
the seasons are getting all
mixed up. A lady remarked
coming out of Walmart the
other day that the winds we
were experiencing were
"March' winds." Winter came
early this year too, with the
recent freeze and it's just
now February.
No matter where one goes,
there is no escaping the
crazy weather cycles or nat-
ural disasters. And of course,
I've heard many say, it's no
different today than it was in
the '70s or '60s or '20s. The
weather does happen in
cycles; natural disasters hap-
pen somewhere almost
everyday. But hearing of
thousands of people dying
should never be "ho-hum"
news just because we may
hear of it so often from dif-
ferent parts of the world.
And what about the lead-
eis of these impoverished
.nations? Some leaders, have
been known to live like
kings, while the citizens are
blessed if they have a place
to lay their head, much less
food, clothing, health care,
etc. Shouldn't the United
Nations hold these govern-
ment leaders accountable for
this? Does the United
Nations have that kind of

authority? Or do we say "it
is nobody's business, we're
just to close our eyes and let
this continue?" : .
I don't "blame" God for
such tragedies. Sure He has
the power to stop them, pre-
vent them, but'He did say
these events would escalate
in these last days. Like birth
pangs of an expectant moth-
et, so the earth is experienc-
ing birth pangs getting ready
for the return of its King.
If He were trying to speak
to us, what could He.be say-
ing through this?, /
1. Keep on good terms
with the Lord, so when you
find yourself in a crisis,
you'll know He heard you
the first time you prayed.
2. Reach out to your
neighbor, don't be an island.
Your neighbor may save
your life one day..
3. Stay close to loved
ones. With terrorism around,
who knows how much
longer you may have them?
4. And help your fellow-
man, be that good Samaritan.
Remember Jesus said it
rains on the just and the
unjust ... and when that
tower fell on those
Galileans, He said it wasn't
because they were evil, it
could happen to you like-
wise, except ye repent. And
when Jeremiah was warning
the children of Israel what
would happen if they didn't
repent, he mourned for the
pending judgment because
he loved his people.
It's not my intention to
spread "doom and gloom,"
there's enough of that as it
is. Let's just keep reading
the signs and be as ready as
we can for whatever may
come and ready to help oth-
ers.

Change is needed for
county's health
Editor:
So the Marge Brewster
Center is closing. I cannot
say that I will miss it
although I will miss the psy-
chologist that has been see-
ing my young son, she has
gone into private practice.
Before the cutbacks Winter
Haven Behavioral Health did
a couple years ago the Marge
Brewster Center was short
staffed for the amount of
clients that need them. After
the cutbacks things became
even worse.
My son should be seeing
someone every two weeks.
His last visit with the psy-
chologit was in November.
He has an -appointment on
Feb. 23 and I am praying that
I again do not get that dread-
ed phone call.from them say-
ing "we are rescheduling ---'s
appointment." In the interim
between appointments I am
the one dealing with the
symptoms of ---'s illness that
cause depression and anger
so bad that he has threatened
:to harm himself. When a 9-
year-old boy holds a knife to
hlis chest and threatens to kill
himself, you know he needs
help.
I have been in contact with
the Agency for Health Care
Administration as well as
Medicaid and Children's
Medical Services. I have also
*sent a letter to Rep. Denise
Grimsley about the problems
here with obtaining mental
health care for those in need
of it.
We have so many qualified
psychiatrists, psychologists
and mental health care thera-
pists in the area that are more
then willing to take on the
Marge Brewster Center's
clients but are blocked
because they are not
approved to take Medicaid or
CMS funds. Is there not a
way to get them approved?
The woman I spoke with at
Medicaid stated "there may
be a need for you to take your


sonrt out of county for treat-
ment." I do not agree with
that.
So now we sit and wait to
hear who the next provider
will be for 2,000 of this coun-
ty's residents. Understand
that many of these people
cannot handle change. I know
that neither of my young sons
handle change well. The
younger of the two is autistic
and I was told that the Marge
Brewster Center -would not
see him because of the
autism. We have a chance to
make a difference by letting
the powers to be know how
we feel about allowing the
private mental health
providers in this area to care
for our loved ones and be
paid through Medicaid or
CMS funds.

Minority puts a lot at
risk for control
Editor:
Mark Rubio, speaking at
Conservative Political Action
Conference, has become the
new darling of the conserva-
tive movement. .Displaying
the appropriate set of nega-
tives, including an anti-
Obama bias, Mr. Rubio has
now hitched his wagon to a
star, however dim; former
Vice President Dick Cheney.
As a senatorial hopeful, he
recently announced his disbe-
lief in global warming, a con-
version based on expediency;
he joins such intellectual
luminaries as Oklahoma
Senator James Inhofe, who
regards all evidence of global
warming as a giant
Democratic hoax.
These are the people who
complain that the national
debt will harm our grandchil-
dren but deny that shrinking
ice caps and rising oceans
will have any consequences.
The health of the market,
not the health of the planet, is
what they regard as most
important. Truth is sacrificed
to expedient advantage.


In the pursuit of regaining
power, an element of reck-
lessness has been injected
into the politics of our coun-
try. The republicans have
now persuaded the people
that the system is "broken."
.What is obfuscated is that
they are the ones who broke
it .
The "system" is now
regarded as broken because,
the minority, the party tem-
porarily out of power, has
decided to act to obstruct
every action of the majority
party in an effort to discredit
it and thus resume power, to
control. Formerly, other con-
siderations; the benefit of the
people, the health of the
nation, our world position
was given weight in the equa-
tion to arriving at what posi-
tion, what tactics should the
minority employ? No longer,
the minority is now willing to
risk the utter destruction of
the state, in order to achieve
control. Winning or losing on
a particular issue, extending
cooperation where mutual
advantage was perceived, are
all now subsumed to destroy-
ing the majority control at all
costs, at any cost.
Such. is the morality of the
Republican party.

Banquet was a
historical success
Editor:
We'd like to offer some
pats-on-the-back for several
folks who helped turn the
annual banquet of the
Historical Society of Avon
Park into a solid success Feb.
6.
Sharon Schuler, general
manager of the Hotel
Jacaranda, and her staff pro-
vided a gem of a setting, deli-
cious food and good, cheerful
service.
The tables were made even
more attractive because of
the donation of floral


arrangements from Steve and
Nell Roberts of Ridge Florist,
as they have done so many
times over the years.
And Cathy Albritton,
director of Marketing and
Community Relations at
Florida Hospital, added .to the
theme of the program by Dr.
Donald Geldart through her
creation of an exhibit on
local medical history.
Thanks, folks, for helping
to make for a evening of
memorable moments.

Vegetable fundraiser
was Fair success
Editor:
The Lake Placid Lion's
Club wants to thank all the
wonderful people who sup-
ported our efforts to help the
visually and hearing impaired
in Highlands County. You
made our veggie fundraiser at.
the Country Fair several
weeks ago a complete suc-
cess. Not only did we com-
pletely sell out, but the won-
derful donations we received
from many giving folks were
very much appreciated.
We especially want to
thank Miller Farms, of Lake
Placid, who are always so
generous by donating all the
beautiful, fresh veggies we
sell for the two days every
year. We truly appreciate
their kind help, knowing that
many more who need help
will now get it.
We are always looking for
new members who are will-
ing to help us. We meet every
second Tuesday, 7 p.m. at St.
Francis of Assisi Church, and
every fourth Tuesday, 6:15
p.m. at Jan's Restaurant, both
are in Lake Placid. For more
information, or if you would
like to help the Lions in any
way please call Jeanne 699-
0743 or 441-1207.

Juggernauts coming
to Tanglewood
SEBRING Actually, it
isn't only jazz, but also
blues, ragtime, swing and
original music combined in.
a strange concoction called
jug band music.
Jug bands flourished in
towns along the Ohio and
Mississippi Rivers in the
1920s and '30s. Much as
New Orleans spawned
Dixieland Jazz, Louisville,
home of the Juggernaut Jug
Band, was the birthplace of
jug music. Today, as then, a
jug band is the ultimate
party band. While Mr. Fish,
Roscoe, Skip and Smiley are
accomplished musicians -
"they don't let virtuosity get
in the way of having fun."
Each performance is a
challenge to the audience to
have as much fun as the
band. Don't. let their antics
fool you though, their exu-
berant music is the result of
skillfully conceived' arrange-
ments, unusual instrumenta-
tion and unique vocal har-
monies.'
Doors and snack bar open
at 6:15 p.m. Sunday and
show at 7 p.m. Cost is $10;
tickets available at the door
or at the Activities Office
business hours. Tanglewood
is one-half mile north of

A memorable day


Shelby Dressel gets a kiss on the cheek from celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey, who was
also a guest on the 'Ellen Degeneres Show,' which taped on Monday. Ramsey told
Dressel that his children would be jealous that he got to meet her.

on the water tower instead of,
the one they agreed to, so they
paid the city the difference of
$47,900' :-
Another good sign, accord-
ing to Green, was that the
state has not updated the tax
revenues to lower figures this
year. .
"That means that the pro-
jections. for fuel taxes 'are-
where they need to be. That's
good news," Green said.
Last year, the state was
changing estimates on a quar-
terly basis because of the dip
in the economy, and this year
has not made any changes in
collection estimates.
One department that was
running higher expenditures
than expected was the city
manager fund.
Green stated that the payout
of Sarah Adelt's salary after
her resignation was an addi-
tional four percent, but should
right itself in the next quarter
because of the open position.
Ad' valorem property taxes
were so low wIithin the city.
that they i did not cover the
cost for the police department
budget, according to Green,
but that department was well
within its budget projects for
the first three months of the

The show Hughes is refer-
ring to is the Special STARS
benefit show being done by
Elvis Wade on Friday night
at Duffer's Sports Grille,
6940 U.S. 27 North, Sebring.
Many of the consumers at
Ridge Area Arc participate in
Special STARS. There will
be a prime rib dinner served
from 6-7:30 p.m. The show
will be at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $45 per person
which includes the dinner,
show and an entry in a draw-
ing for the Elvis Presley 75th
Anniversary Set (3 CDs fea-
turing 75 greatest hits).
Prtn'ktand gratuities"'aie'ot

payable to Special STARS.
Credit cards are also accept-
able.
The entire restaurant will
he transformed into a 1950s


year, with no foreseeable'
bumps.
Ad valorem tax collections
were at $1,495,832 and the
budget for police department,
is estimated at $1,882,018 for
2009-2010. -
Another revenue stream not
hitting projections, according
to Green, was the water andi
sewer fund.
Increased fees are causing
less use, Green said, and that
was to be expected, but not
budgeted.
Billings for water : were
down $75,657 and in conjunc-
tion, sewer billings were
down $92,465 so far this year
for a total of $168,122.
Connections for water and
sewer, due to new develop-'
ment were also down from
projections, missing the mark
by $127,055 due to a dip in
development.
"Water rates have gone up,
so people are going to use less
water," Green said. "They are
conserving more, and that's a
good thing."
:Income from the ,rents of
the: airport properties were
$7,222 less than budgeted as
well, Green said, and that
deficit was due to the fact that,
only 51 of the T-hangars were.
currently rented and the budg-
et called for 100 percent occu-

pancy.
Additionally,. the airport's
budgeted expenditures were
100 percent over the budgeted
amount due to the repair of
the landing strip and taxi-way
lighting. '
Operation expenses were
, much higher than what we
budgeted for three months as
well, and Green explained
,that the repair of the lights
constituted an unforeseen
increase in the electric. bill
each month.
*The Solid Waste
Department was a bit 'of a
bright spot in the grim figures
because it generated consider-
ably more than budgeted, hit-
ting almost $353,000 com-
pared to the budgeted
$348,000.
Additionally, Green said,
the tipping fees at the landfill
were considerable less
because of the' fewer pickup
and an open position
Budgeted for just' over
$275,000, the expenses were
around $248,000 for the first
quarter.
"They are basically running
less trucks less days," Green
said.
Green recommended no
changes to the budget at this
point, and promised another
update in April.

The intersection of Lake Francis Road and V. S. 27 has.
been the scene of more than one fatal crash as this '
memorial to a victim attests. The memorial is directly
opposite the site of the fatal tour bus crash Monday.

many patients,, so badly
hurt."
He credits by-bystanders
and the injured themselves,
for a major reason the res-
cue went so well. "The
bystanders' help was
invaluable,", he said.
"It was a hectic scene,"
he said, describing triage
with its long lines of the
injured lying on the ground
strapped to backboards.
Coltharp was also
impressed that despite the
early chaos ,no one pan-
icked, including the


injured passengers.
So many. emergency
agencies ,turned out;'
Coltharp is still getting a
final count.
Both professional and
volunteer fire .departments
responded as did the sher-
iff's office and the Florida
Highway Patrol. '
Hardee County sent a
fire unit to cover the south-
ern portion of Highlands
County during the emer-
gency, and Polk County
sent a unit to cover the
northern portion of the
county.


Bus was carrying tourists for


Continued from page 1A
Of the 11 victims trans-
ported to Florida Hospital in
Lake Placid, two were later
airlifted to larger hospitals
and nine remained hospital-
ized as of Tuesday morning.
Tiffany Bender, spokes
person for Florida Hospital,
said Tuesday that Florida
Hospital. Heartland Division
had been expecting 12 vic-
tims at the Sebring emer-
gency room, but half of those
victims were airlifted directly
from the scene and only six
victims were transported to
the Sebring campus. Of that
number two remain hospital-
ized locally and four were
later flown to Orlando.
Highlands Regional
Medical Center received
seven victims.
John Dunn, spokesperson
for Tampa General Hospital,
said Tuesday morning, that


six victims were airlifted to
the hospital, three directly
from the scene and three
from Highlands County hos-
pitals.
Hospitals in Orlando also
took in the injured, and Lee
Memorial Hospital in Ft.
Myers took in one.
Early reports indicated the
bus passengers were all from
Boston, Mass.
Exploritas, an independent
company which SFCC uses
in its community education
program, is based in Boston,
but the tourists on the bus
came from many different
states, including Indiana and
Virginia. Bell said the day of
the crash was the first day of
a week-long program',
SThe bus had been on its
way to deliver the tourists to
their hotel.
"Right now we are focus-
ing on the individuals .and

arrived quickly a large group
of individuals had stopped
and were helping people get
out of the bus.
."It was bodies on top of
bodies," Smith said. "Many
people had broken bones. We
had to be real careful With
them."
One group started at the
front of the bus, another at
the back, and they worked
towards the middle. Many of
the victims were calling for
their spouses.
The bus driver was trapped
in his seat, but Smith and
Cook were able to pry open a
space so he could get fresh
air and breathe. It took fire-
fighters using the Jaws of
Life t6 free him, however.
Cook said the passers-by
worked together, almost as if
the\ were a team.
"There %%ere maybe 15 of


us," Cook said.
They spent about an hour
and a half helping get people
out.
"I lost all track -of time,"
Smith said. "It was just do it,
do it, do it. When it was over,
I looked at my phone, and I
couldn't believe so much
time had gone by."

Hubbard second, Torres sixth at State


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKELAND The City of
Champions added two more
medals to its' trophy case as
Charles Hubbard took second
in the Class 1A, 160-pound
weight class at the State
Wrestling Championships
Saturday night, while Omar
Torres made wrestled his way
back into -medal contention at
171 pounds before settling
for sixth.
"It's been a rough year,"
Torres said. "Finding out I
had diabetes as a teenager,
some injuries. I had hoped to
do better, but I'm proud of
what I accomplished."
As well he should be,
given the comeback trail he
found himself on and fought
through to earn his bit of
hardware.
After Friday afternoon's
decision loss to eventual
third-place winner, Derek
Crow, Torres had to win
another match Friday
evening to stay in the tourna-
ment.
He came back strong, win-
ning that match with a pin
and then another early
Saturday to not only keep
him alive, but assure him of
taking his place' on the win-
ner's stand.
But a stunning pin to
Michael Garcia of Bishop
Moore in his next match sent
him to the fifth-sixth place
match.
"He was dominating that
match," Brown said of the
loss to Garcia. "He had it, no
problem. But at one point, he
had him cradled and had a
few options of what to do
with it. He took a risky move
in trying to roll him, where.
he briefly was on his back
and (Garcia) spun out of it at
jLtkj.j*, right moment to get,

"'This was his first. year
making it to state," Brown
continued. "To do what he
did'his first time here, to not
be overwhelmed at this stage
and come home with a medal,
that's an accomplishment."
Hubbard. too. had his goal
set high, and was on the


verge of achieving it but ran
into a little bit of bad luck.
"I have a hard time with
wrestler's that are long," he
said. "He (Wes Jarrell of
Tampa Prep) was a very good
wrestler with a lot of talent, I
don't want to take that away
from him. But his height
gave me problems."
Up until that final match,
Hubbard had plowed his way
through the bracket with little
trouble.
Two second-period pins
Friday had moved him into
medal contention and a first-
period pin Saturday over
Thomas Gorman of Admiral
Farragut put him into the
championship.
"This is the' state level,
with the best of the best," co-
coach Ed Brown said. "And
he's going through getting
pins in all his matches, You
don't see that a lot here."
But in the finals match, the
problematic match-up proved
the difference.
"I would be ready to throw
him, but at the last second
he'd get out of it," Hubbard
said. "He had all the leverage
and that made it tough."
Brown could see the toll it
was taking.
"You could see he was get-
ting frustrated," he said. "We
told him to just let it flow,
keep wrestling and he had
some chances late."
That he did, as after Jarrell
had built up a. seemingly
insurmountable lead into the
third period, Hubbard made a
charge that cut into it.
On at least two occasions,
Hubbard took Jarrell down
and looked to be in position
to get a pin over the final two
minutes.
But each time, Jarrell was
able to flip o'er onto his
stomach to' keep Hubbard
from making the miraculous.
comeback.
-"It was disheartening, but
the coaches told me, most
guys don't make it this far at
all," Hubbard said.
"Sometimes you just run into
,a great wrestler with one of
your main weaknesses, which

'In so doing, the margin

program used to succeeding
and one taking steps to reach

,"They've been conditioned
to lose for the last few years
here," Lake Placid head
coach Alesia Cheshire said
afterward. "That's what
we're trying to turn around.
Everyone has a job to do on
the field arid they're learning
that, but it's a lot of the little
things that cost them."
Like the seven errors on
the night that gave a Sebring
team that didn't need much
help, that much more of an
edge.
After Carrie Dudek laced a
two-out, two-RBI single in
the first to put the Streaks up
2-0, errors helped six more
runs to come across in the
bottom of the second.
There was the fair-share of
Sebring slugging that played
a bigger part, however, as
Tayla DaSilva tripled home a
run, Dino Lower doubled
home two, Carly Hoffner sin-
gled in two and Wendy
Negrio and Dudek each had
run-scoring base-knocks.

"Carley can get impatient

Sinness said. "She just wants


to pitch it, get it back and
pitch it again, so it's hard for
her to relax. She also has a
habit of aiming it sometimes
instead of just throwing."

Council a Crusader


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK Avon
Park's leading tackler,
Dwayne Council, signed
with a college in Missouri
Monday afternoon.
Council signed with
Evangel University, an
NAIA Division III school
located '"in Springfield,
MO., and chose the faith-
based school over other
options because of the
recruiting care.
"They really made me
feel comfortable," Council
said at the signing. "The
coach came and visited, and


laid out all the options. He
calls on a regular basis just
to make' sure that every-
thing is OK. I think I am
going to really like it
there."
Council will play at the
safety position, and hopes
to move into a linebacker
slot in the Crusader's 3-5
setup before too long.
"If I can get bigger and
stronger, I think I will have
a chance at that spot. But
we will have to see,"
Council said. "I know I am
going to like it out there,
and I already am happy
.with the head coach."

Central Security tops


league-leading Yates


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Central Security team
blasted out a 25-14 victo-
ry over the Michelle Yates
Insurance team in Lake
Placid Senior Softball
League play on Monday,
Feb. 22, at the Lake June
ball fields.
The Security team
jumped off to a 16-1 lead
by the fifth inning when
the Yates team rallied to
score eight runs.
However, the Security
men did not fold under
the onslaught, scoring
nine runs of their own in
the last two innings to
lock up the win.
It took great defensive
plays by Dana Hurlbut,
Larry Lane and Glenn
Wearsh to hold the high-
scoring Yates team in
check.
Dave Reed once again
led the Security team at
the plate with a grand
slam and another fence-
clearing home run among
his 4-for-5 day.
Ken Ferano was 5-for-
6, including a double and
a triple, and Lane was 4-
for-6 while Bill Card,
Dana Hurlbut, Brian
Pluta, Tom Walsh and
Wearsh chipped in three
hits each for winners,
with Hurlbut having two
.doubles.
John Buja made tw6
outstanding catches in the
field where he had to go a
long way for the wind
blown balls and also had
three hits for Yates.
Jim Morgan, Gary
Steeves and Don Ward
also had three hits each in
the losing effort with.
Morgan, Steeves and Rod
Palmer each blasting out
home runs.
On the other field, the
Lockhart Service Center
-team scored a'16-10 win
over the second place
Schooni's Restaurant
team.
It was a relatively
light-hitting day for
Schooni's, with only five
players having as many as
two hits.


Roy Oke had two doubles
and a fence-clearing home
run, while Todd Martin and
Andy Timermanis had three
hits each and Harvey Jones
and Ray Hensley had two,
with all of these being sin-
gles.
The late game found the.
annual appearance of the
Harlan Newby fan club from
Wisconsin, which showed up
. in force.
This time, they all had
matching shirts of the team
colors with their names on
them and an action picture of
"grandpa" (Harlan) on their
shirts.
The organized cheering by
this fan club inspired
Harlan's Seminole Tire team
to roll over Lake Placid
Marine by a score of 16-9.
Apparently intimidated by.
the cheering of this fan club
and the pitching of Newby,
only .Duke Hensley of the
Mariners managed as many
as three hits.
Hensley had a double and
triple among those hits and
was held up from having a
home run by a slower runner
ahead of him as he drove in
'four runs.
Jeff Stanley and Kyle
Saunders were the only other
players on the Mariner team
to manage two hits.
George Lavoie and Jim
Radcliff had four hits each
for the "tiremen," with
Radcliff having two doubles
among his hits.
However, it was long-ball
hitting Ken Morgan with a
fence-clearing blast, a triple
and a double that drove in
five runs.
Howard Carney, Mike
Jurmu, and Richard Rivera
also had three hits each for
the winners with Jurmu and
Rivera having two-baggers
among their hits.
In spite of. the loss,
Michelle Yates "Insurance
continues .to lead the league
with a record of 10-5, fol-
lowed by Schooni's at 8-5,
Seminole Tire at /7-7,
Lockhart at 6-7, Central
Security at 5-7 and Lake
Placid Marine at 4-9.
League play' -continues
through March.


Panthers go four-of-five on weekend


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
Between the baseball and
softball' teams, SFCC won
four of five games over the
weekend, with the baseball
team starting this week in
fine fashion with a 15-8 win
.over visiting.Catonsville. of
Maryland Monday evening.
Getting the'win, in relief,
was Blake Holliday who
went-five innings, struck out
seven and gave up just two
unearned runs.
"We have to pitch more
consistently and on defense
we must be better," head
coach Rick Hitt said.
"Offensively, when our club
stays disciplined, we can
swing it with anyone we
play."
That was certainly the


case as Taed Moses contin-
ued his torrid start, racking
up four hits, including two
home runs and four RBI.
Karson Kravec knocked
in three with his two hits,
Tom Sicking drove in two
with three hits and Brandon
Kirby scored three times and
raked a double and triple.
The win was a welcome
start to a.busy stretch for the
Panthers who have 13 games
in the next 15 days, with a
Tuesday meeting with
Davenport University of
Michigan before hosting
Palm Beach State College
tonight.
It all began with a Friday
night baseball win over
Broward, 13-11 with the
offense continuing its' early
season potency.

But it was the pitching of
soon-to-be Seminole Adam
Simmons that Hitt took spe-
cial note of.
"Broward was an out-
standing offensive club and
(Simmons) had his best out-
ing to date as he struck out
10 over seven innings," he
said. "His strike-to-ball ratio
was much better and he got
us in the dugout quickly
over the first five innings."
That combination of
pitching and hitting carried
over into Saturday's 10-3
win over the University of,
Tampa B team, but the sec-
ond game saw a complete
turnaround.
"You would have thought
we never practiced defense
in the second game," Hitt
said of the 10-2 loss. "It was


not a good game for our
guys with the gloves."
But every team has games
to forget and, as Hitt noted,
"that's really the first time
that has occurred in our first
14 games."
The softball squad had no
such letdown in their dou-
bleheader Saturday, sweep-
ing past Ava Maria
University 10-3 and 15-2 to
move their' record to 6-3 on
the young season.
The Lady Panthers got
back to action Tuesday at
Seminole State College
before traveling to Leesburg
to face Lake Sumter Friday
and taking part in the Polk
State College Tournament in
Winter Haven Saturday and
Sunday.

Suzy's safety checklist to use

herbal medicine and drugs


Dear Pharmacist:
I take eight different
medications and 6 supple-
ments each day. I worry
constantly that they will
interact. Please tell your
readers what some of the
most common interactions
are? K.S. Decatur, I11.
Answer: Clip this article,
or forward it to someone
you care for, because it just
might save a life. I'm going
to give you.a 'safety check-
list' of common drug-herb
interactions, and there is' a
huge section devoted to this
in my book, Drug Muggers.
Alcohol The world's
most famous liquid muscle
relaxant, alcohol slows the
heart rate down. If you
combine it with sleeping
pills or narcotic pain-reliev-
ers, it can stop the heart!
It's also dangerous to com-
bine it with beta blockers
(blood pressure meds).
Grapefruit a delicious
fruit that when juiced, pro-
vides powerful anti-cancer
flavonoids and antioxi-
dants. Like a few other
fruits, it can block a bio-
chemical pathway, in the
liver that causes the levels
of medications to rise
(rather than getting broken
down and cleared out of the
body). Some drugs that
interact with grapefruit
include oxycodone
(Percocet), estrogen-con-
taining hormones, most
station cholesterol, drugs,
sildenafil (Viagra),

Dear Pharmacist
Suzy Cohen

diazepam and some antihis-
tamines. The interaction
may occur even if you wait
several hours' after'your
medication'.
Ginkgo biloba famed
for its ability to sharpen
memory by increasing
blood flow to the brain. If
you are taking a blood thin-
ner, like warfarin, aspirin or
Plavix,, then you may expe-
rience enhanced blood-thin-
ning effects which may lead
to easy bruising and inter-
nal bleeding.
Pomegranate or grape-
fruit juice Chock full, of
antioxidants and heart-
healthy nutrients, but it
might spike the level of sex
pills (Cialis, Levitra or
Viagra) causing headache,
indigestion, flushing, heart
palpitations or visual dis-
turbances.
Stinging nettle It
helps men with prostate
problems and women with
overactive bladder. Thing
is, it has this lovely benefit
of slightly lowering blood
sugar. If you take stinging


nettle while also taking dia-
betic medication, your.
blood sugar may drop too
low so monitor carefully or
avoid the herb.
Iron or zinc supple-
ments Wonderful to help
improve immunity and rev
up thyroid production, but
these can block the actions
of many popular antibiotics
including Cipro and
Levaquin.
St. John's wort -
Fantastic for boosting mood
and reducing pain. It can
increase levels of other
drugs, causing them to
spike so high that you get
dangerous side effects. This
doesn't mix well with
digoxin, omeprazole
(Prilosec), MAO anti-
depressants, oral contracep-
tives, alprazolam (Xanax),
and drugs used for
HIV/AIDS.
Ginseng, ma huang or
bitter orange, caffeine -
Found in many'diet pills,
these stimulate the body so
avoid if you take breathing
medications such as
inhalers (bronchodialators)
or theophylline.
Arginine Very popular
natural amino acid that
helps erectile dysfunction
and improves blood flow to
the heart. It's wonderful
that arginine also reduces
blood pressure, but if you
take this with nitroglycerin
or isosorbide drugs, it can
result in dangerously low
blood pressure.

Members of the Garden Club of Sebring raffled a 'Butterfly Garden' at the Roaring '20s
Festival earlier this month.


Garden Club raffles 'Butterfly Garden'


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING On Jan. 25,
the Garden Club of Sebring
Inc. held its monthly meeting
with a floral design program
presented by member Liz
Murken. Murken is from
Oshkosh, Wis. and winters
here in Sebring. She is a flo-
ral design instructor, there-
fore, she travels a lot. There
were 38 members in atten-


dance and four guests.
On Feb. 13 the club was to
have its annual plant sale at
the Roaring '20s Festival, but
because of the cold weather,
they could only promote their
membership. They also raf-
fled a "Butterfly Garden."
Ginger Schmidt was the win-
ner of this beautiful array of
butterfly plants.


The club is planning to
have its annual plant sale at a
later date, which will be
announced.
The club meetings are held
at the Sebring Civic Center at
noon on the fourth Monday

mation about the club, call

knowledge of

plants with

garden club


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The
Avon Park Founders Garden
Club held its February meet-
ing at the home of Rosie
Longanecker. The club had
planned a field trip to
Cypress Gardens, but since
the Gardens are temporarily
closed, the meeting place
was changed.
The program for the
meeting. was presented by
Rosie Longanecker, who
answered questions con-
cerning the care of plants,
especially after the hard
winter we have had.
Longanecker attended
South Florida Community
College and has an Applied
Degree in Agriculture, and
Citrus as well as an
Associate's Degree in
Horticulture and Landscape.
She has also earned her
Technician's License.
One of the more impor-
tant items covered was what
to do with plants now. She
advised 'the members to
leave the plants as they are
for now, since cutting them
would leave them suscepti-
ble to a frost or freeze
should there be another one.
Even though plants look
bad, the root systems may
have survived the cold
weather and will put out
new growth once the weath-
er becomes warmer. She had
examples of plants that do
well in the winter in Florida
and add color to the land-
scape design, some of those
being camellias.
Betty Scott reported on
the Blue Star Memorial

Rosie Longanecker presented an informative program on
how to care for plants, to the Avon Park Founders


Garden Club.


Marker., She had copies of
newspaper articles showing
the dedication of the marker
on March 24, 1965. She also
told of its history since that
time having been knocked
down by accidents and
being repaired. The original
marker was at the point of
the island dividing State
Road 64 through downtown
Avon Park. Because of the
occurrences of these acci-
dents, the marker was
moved to its present posi-
tion.
Martha Williams reported
that engraved plates have
been added to the. plaque at
the Avon Park Museum,
honoring Arden Sutherland
and Mary Johnston for their


service to both the Garden
Club and the Historical
Society.
The club will hold its
annual plant sale on March
13, the second Saturday of
the, month, at :Donaldson
Park. The site was selected
because of the availability
of shelter and parking. The
sale will run from 9 a.m. to
1 p.m. and will include nurs-
ery-grown plants and mem-
ber-grown plants, as well as
caladium bulbs.
The March meeting will
be a hands-on demonstra-
tion on floral design pre-
sented by Betty Scott. For
information about the plant
sale or the Garden Club, call
452-1927.

Co-leader Betty Roulette called the meet-
ing to order, after which the TOPS and KOPS
pledges were said by the appropriate mem-
bers,
Speaker Linda Luke has lost more than 100


pounds with TOPS and is still losing. She said
a support system such as TOPS is all impor-
tant in a successful weight loss program.
Several of her points were "Change your
lifestyle" and "Lose the weight little by lit-
tle," because the changes that we make now
are what we will live with for the rest of our
lives. She ended with "I am an intelligent per-
son and I will do it!"
Karen Goodwin called the roll with 45
members present and the weight loss was
again excellent, which makes us all want to
try harder and not let our club members
down. The Best Loser of the Week was
Delores Guzanowski. Yes-Yeses for the com-
ing week, in keeping with the "yellow" week
of the contest, are pineapple, wax beans and
yellow squash.
Margaret Garas held on to the Travel Gift
and, if she loses for three more weeks, the gift
is hers.
Mary Anderson gave several prizes out in
keeping .with the contest. She said the boats
are moving pretty well with the different
teams' weight losses.
Betty Roulette said the registration money
for SRD must be in by next week. The room
reservations are made for April 8-9. She
explained what SRD is to new members and
stressed how enjoyable it is to recognize the
phenomenal weight losses in Florida TOPS
Clubs.
