A special dog
finds a home and.
happiness with a,
special girl
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING This is a story
about a girl and her dog a very
special dog, and a very special
girl.
Kaley Terrell is 11 years old
and a student at Sebring Middle
School.
A member of 4-H she began to
train her beagle, Cloey, in obedi-
ence classes as well as agility and.
showmanship.
Cloey, however, being a beagle,
tended to follow her nose instead
of directions, even after three
years of training.
"She had reached her pinnacle
of success," Kaley's dad, Bob
Terrell, said laughing.
Early in 2009 Kaley befriended
a stray cat, leaving food out for it.
In April the family was going
out of town for a vacation. Cloey
was taken care of, but the: stray
cat loomed in Kaley's mind. She
was afraid it would go hungry.
So she and her parents rounded
up the stray and Kaley and her
dad took the cat to the Humane
Society.
It was busy that day and Kaley
had time to visit some of the dogs
penned near the entrance.
One dog in particular touched
her heart. A mid-sized mix with
floppy ears and a short haired,
silky coat sat in a pen, her tail
tucked between its legs and the
saddest, most worried expression
Kaley had ever seen. But what
won her heart was the fact the dog
patted her hand with its paw after
she had patted its head.
Immediately she got her dad

and started the hard sell..
Cloey needed a companion,
Kaley said, and this dog needed a
home. Then she resorted to every


child's trump card, "please,
Daddy, please, please, please."
Terrell called his wife, Lisa, and
explained the situation..
Lisa Terrell, who had expected
her family to return home-with
one less animal, was stunned to
discover they wanted to return
with a second dog.
Something like that had never
.entered her mind, and she wasn't

park's waste

Park owner says city's
claims are not factual
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK The Avon Park City
Council directed the city attorney and
Public Works Director Julian Deleon to
refuse to accept any more effluent matter
from Lake Glenada- RV and Mobile
Home Park. ..
The city has accepted the' runoff from
the park's. waer t'>..ireni plant into its
settling ponds for the last 25 years,
according to owner Edgar Hudson, and
he doesn't understand why they want to
change'now.
"Well, we have been
doing this for a while,'' F
and now they can't find
their paperwork.. They
just. want to charge me
more for the service is -
all," Hudson said. Deleon
Deleon presented doc-
uments from 1999 as his proof that there
were serious problems with the plant,
and told council that he was not comfort-
able taking the waste water any more.
Deleon further insisted that at the
peak tourist season in January, February
and March, the plant at Lake Glenada
could not handle the amount of volume
to properly process the waste, and was
discharging too many solids into Avon
Park's retention pond.
"So much fecal chloroform were pres-
ent in the effluent' that it could not be
measured," Deleon said. "They are han-
dling between 22,000 to 27,000 gallons
per day, but the plant is only able to han-
dle 20,000. That overflow is going some-
. where."

Colby gets grant money for public records fight with county

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Better safe than sorry on the highway


ur thoughts and prayers go out to
the people who were on the
Exploritas charter bus Monday, as
well as for those who responded to the
scene of the terrible crash.


Our on-site reporter was
shaken by the number of
injured, and the seriousness
of the injuries. '
"It looked like a disaster
movie," he said,
And yet he was impressed
by the quiet, methodical way
bystanders and trained pro-
fessionals worked together
attending to the wounded.
No drill, however realistic,
tests a system or organization
like a true emergency.
We are more than proud of
the county's emergency
response teams we also
feel gratitude and have
increased respect and trust.
We are more than proud of
.the passersby who stopped tq
help, they embodied the spir;
it of citizenship and commu-


nity. .
We even have some sym-
pathy for the driver of the car
who appears to have caused
the collision by failing to
yield to the bus. Certainly it
.was not an intentional act in
the sense .that ,,she wished to
cause harm, and living with
the results of the crash will
be a heavy burden.
Nor should we scapegoat
the driver as if none of us
have ever- made a misjudg-
ment.
At the same time, however,
the loss of life, the pain and
suffering and, in some cases,
the permanent effects of
injuries are heart breaking.
We have.to find a way to
make some good come out of
this.


Anyone who has lived in
Highlands County for any
length of time knows just
how dangerous U.S. 27 is -
out of town as well as in
town.
It isn't the actual roadbed
that creates the danger. U.S.
27 has plenty of room and a
smooth surface.
The main problem is the
people who are in a rush.
Many drivers top 70 miles
per hour as soon as they. are
south of Lake Placid or north,
of Avon Park.
Even those navigating the
miles in between tend to push
the speed limit, or dart from
lane to lane moving through
slower traffic.
We mention this to remind
everyone that getting on and
off the highway requires
observation and patience,
,especially getting on and
especially as we grow older
and our reflexes slow. It isn't
always possible to judge an
oncoming vehicle's speed.
The intersection where


Lake Francis Road feeds into
U.S. 27 has become a scene
of many vehicle crashes, a
good portion of which
included fatalities.
A traffic signal at the site
seems a logical choice.
But Lauren Hatchell, a
spokesperson for the Florida
Department of
Transportation, explained
that there are eight guide-
lines, called warrants, that
are used to determine the
need for a traffic signal. A
site must meet at least one of
these warrants.
According to the FDOT,
"Because (warrants) are min-
imum requirements, satisfac-
tion of a warrant is not neces-
sarily justification or a man-
date for a traffic signal."
One of the warrants is
called crash experience. It is
"intended for applications
where the severity and fre-
quency of crashes are the
principal reasons to consider
installing a, traffic control
signal." .

While we feel the intersec-
tion of Lake Francis Road
and U.S. 27 meets this war-
rant, an official request and
study will have to made.
In the meantime there is a
small action we can all take
to make ourselves and others
safer.
Instead of attempting to
completely cross the highway
to head in the opposite direc-
tion, take the move in two

Where is the great
introductory plan?-
Editor:
I recently subscribed to (a satel-
lite program provider) after reading
about their $29.95 introductory
one-year offer with a $100 rebate. I
fully expected the rate to probably
'double after the one-year-period.
-'Free installation was also offered.
S.Well to date, Feb. 19, I have
1paid out of pocket $264.75 and
Pha\e only had (satellite program
Spr6vider) since Jan. 3. There Was a
-$l21.35 service call, an $80 fee to
amount the dish on a pole and then
just three days after receiving the
service I got a bill for $94.51 for
what I don't know and my monthly
(t.1 is $68.71 for 13 months.
*Now folks, I'm not exactly'
'dmrb, but at this point after two
phone calls to wherever ....I still
have no idea-what I am paying for.
The person on the phone told me
-about all the channels I was getting
:(even those I don't want, but
according to the person on the
other end of.the line I can drop
after April hello). I also must
stay with the program for 60 days
to get the $100 rebate. Then I was
informed that at the end of 13
months, my bill would be $92.50
'per month.
Where or where is the $29.95
introductory plan? This is without
:a doubt deceptive and fraudulent
:advertising and I am advising those
:reading this ... buyer beware. The
:picture is terrific ... the billing is
.the worst. There is not a local
office to go to and unless Abdul in
India can perform magic on my
billing, I will be leaving (satellite
program provider) as soon as I can.

Things of concern to
consider
Editor:
I would like to share this letter
to our Congress:
I am writing to inform you that
many of your constituents are very
much opposed to this 700-page bill
with 87 co-sponsors concerning
immigration. We want our present
immigration laws enforced, not
decimated. I understand this bill
has provisions as follows; for those
currently in the United States.
Payment of $500, some English
lessons, a thousand extra visas for
immigrants from countries who
ignore our immigration laws will
be issued, a fast track program to
bring family members of new citi-
zens, increased medical care for
apprehended illegals will be avail-
able.
Here are a few additional things
of concern:
Al Gore and his associates have
suppressed findings by other scien-
tists who disagree that climate
warming is caused by human

action. A whistle blower has come
forward from their research center
with proven evidence that this is
false, at best this is uncertain.
There seems to be many views on
this subject. Global warming pro-
posals would cost trillions of dol-
lars and expand government-reach
, and power, which would be another
step in the wrong direction.
A few months ago when
Congress voted to deny federal
funding from Acorn, we had reason
to believe that the illegal activities
of this organization had been
solved. This organization was
caught trying to advise undercover
reporters on how to evade tax,
immigration and child prostitution
laws, but according to the justice
department's conclusions, the pres-
idential administration can lawfully
pay Acorn for services provided
.under.contracts sighed before
Congress bainnd the government
from providing money to the
group.
I understand the conclusion was
laid out by David Barron, acting
assistant Attorney General, office
of legal council, adding a new
wrinkle to debate over the anti-
poverty group's activities in recent
efforts to distance the government
from it. The government might
continue to honor contracts, an
"organization that is alleged to have
paid volunteers with crack cocaine,
engaged in massive voter registra-
tion fraud using taxpayer's money
to get specific politicians elected to
Congress and the White House.
Reporters suggest they are con-
sidering changing their name.
There is an old saying, "a lock
on the door only keeps out the
innocent; a thief will find a way to
.get in." That is about the equiva-
lent of what we are facing, but
thank God for these organizations
who keep an eye on these things
and keep us informed. If we don't


see the danger creeping upon us,
there's not much we can do to pre-
vent the act.
. These are things of great con-
cern, which your constituents want
representation against. Please give
these things serious consideration.

Plight of education in
Florida
Editor:
The state of Florida is near the
top nationally in economic woes
and education is a tragic part of it.
The conditions would be much
worse but for the billions of dollars
of stimulus funding by the federal
government. True, Florida is due
much of it since it is Florida taxes
paid to the feds.
At least some 10,000 teachers,
police and fire personnel and gov-
ernmental employees are still
working. One might be cynical
enough to think the Florida legisla-
ture calculated this when creating
the state budgets since 2006. The
bankers, developers, realtors and
insurance industry kept their mil-


lions of dollars in profits, while
regular working people paid their
taxes and struggled to survive on
less pay, minus benefits and higher
prices for just about everything.
One cruel example is the doubling
and tripling of transportation fees.
Now Governor Crist wants to
increase funding for education and
give a one percent cut in corporate
taxes; to improve education and
create jobs. Again, to make this
possible, he expects federal stimu-
lus funds to pay for'it. Ironically, it
was the corporate entity, represent-
ed by the four noted above that
created the economic disaster in
Florida.
The federal government provid-
ed some three trillion dollars to
save Wall Street, bankers and
lenders, but did that help working
people and small businesses? The
record shows it did not. Yet, the
governor wants to give more to
corporations and "small" business-
es earning not more than $1 bil-
lion. Question: How many "small"
businesses in Highlands County
earns $1 billion a year? How many
earn millioni? I would guess that
the businesses we trade with feel


* lucky if they make $500,000! Yet,
they cannot get loans for payrolls
or inventory from those banks that
Sgot billions of dollars to survive!
Modification for home owners-is
another cruel hoax..
The plight of education is simi-
lar drastic. So, to solve the prob-
lem, the governor wants- the coun-
ties to raise school taxes. The state
legislature has already reduced the
percent of state support to under 60
percent. Just as the federal govern-
ment shifted support for social and
educational programs to the states
since 1980, the state of Florida is
shifting state support to the cities
and counties. Still, Crist increased.
the state budget by $3 billion!
Where is that money going? Food
for thought.

at all sure how she felt about
it.
A loving mother, however,
she packed up Cloey and
drove to the Humane
Society, already beginning to
waver. She wanted to make
sure the dogs got along
before agreeing to anything.
Her luck, the dogs got
along just fine.
Then she heard the dog's
history abandoned at the
society as a puppy two years
previously, the dog had lived
her entire life behind bars,
so to speak. The staff had
named her Rainea. No one
had ever expressed an inter-
est in adopting her.
As loving and committed
as the Humane Society's
staff and volunteers are, as
much special attention as
they give the animals in their
care, the animals living so
long largely in a small pen
amid lots of noise, smells
and visitors can have its
effect.
Poor Rainea, whose pen
was near the road, was afraid
of noises, sudden moves and
her own shadow. She quiv-
ered and quaked, her tail was
always between her legs, her
brows wrinkled in anxiety,
and her eyes full of doubt
and sorrow.
She was a deeply unhappy
animal.
Melissa Fiorito, now the.
manager of the shelter, then
a volunteer, started helping
Rainea.
"She was afraid of her
own reflection and terrified
of cars," Fiorito said.
Whenever she could she
would take Rainea for walks,
getting her used to walking
on'a leash. But to say the
dog was neurotic is under-
stating the challenge Kaley
faced.
-"When I first got her,"
Kaley said, "She stayed in
thei back room hiding."
S Whenever the family had
tc take her somewhere in the
c they would have to pick
h4r up and put her in.
;Then Kaley began regular

training sessions with both
the 4-H Club and the
Heartland Dog Club. She
was patient, gentle and per-
sistent. Slowly Rainea.began
to come around.
One afternoon the family
let Rainea off her leash in an
area it was safe for her run.
Kaley's dad said, "It was
the first time we saw the dog
happy. Her tail was up like a
flag and she was like ecstat-
ic." Best of all, she came
when called.
And Rainea began to
respond to the training,
slowly getting over her
fears. She even began win-
ning awards a first place
for obedience in a small
show, and a third place at the
Tampa State Fair. And all
this in about 10 months:
"Kaley has done a won-
derful job with her," Fiorito


said.
Rainea and Cloey have
become friends.
."Cloey will bark," Kaley
said, "and Rainea runs
around crazily as if she's
saying, 'What's happening. I
must be stupid. I don't see
anything."'
Lisa Terrell can't say
enough about the Humane
Society or Rainea. "All I can
say is (the dogs at the socie-
ty) are one-of-a-kind dogs.
You'll never find others like
them."
Fiorito said that there are
currently between 50 and 60
dogs in need of good homes.
Call 655-1522 for informa-
tion.
The number for the
Heartland Dog Club is 385-
7474. For information- about

gram call 402-6540. '


City, RV park at odds over waste


Continued from page 1A
But the biggest issue with
Deleon was the control of
what was .actually being
dumped onto city property.
"We have no control over
the water coming out of the
plant, but we are responsible
to the DEP for the water
they are pumping into our
ponds. We are responsible if"
their plant has a hiccup," he
said.
"I am recommending that
Lake Glenada shut down
their plant and hook to the
city water disposal," Deleon
concluded.
Hudson argued that the
plant on his property was in
compliance because it is
inspected regularly by the
DEP.
"If there was a problem, I
would have been fined and
cited. The records he has are
from 1999, the year before I
bought the park. I spent

the meeting.

'To just up and
decide that our
contract is no
longer any good,
and to make those
unfactual claims,
are just not right'

EDGAR HUDSON
park owner
got his figures. We only run
about 10,000 gallons per
day at the peak times, and
the water is almost drink-
able when it comes out from
the treatment plant. We are
not doing anywhere near the
volume he is talking about,"
Hudson added. "Don't cen-
sure me for something that
is not absolutely true."
According to Hudson, he
has had very little communi-
cation with the city over the
matter, and was surprised
that this was on the agenda.
"We didn't even know
they were going to discuss
this until the last minute.
We've had no communica-
tions and no letters. To just
up and decide that our con-


tract is no longer any good,
and to make those unfactual
claims, are just not right,"
Hudson said.
Another issue was the
billing rates, which were set
25 years ago, and according
to Dejeon were not up to
date.
"Bill is capped at 15,000
gallons per month, arid they
are producing 875,000 per
month. ,That has to be
adjusted as well," he said.
City Attorney Gerald
Buhr echoed the billing sen-
timents.
"I would go ahead and
raise those rates regardless
of the decision tonight.
Those rates are so unrealis-
tic that they are laughable,"
Buhr said.
Hudson said that he has
not received any notices
from the city to date, and
that he had to contact the
engineering firm and gather
his documents for a possible
legal fight.
"We are going to have a
battle on our hands, that's
for sure. We just have to get
all of our stuff together and
take it to them," Hudson
said.


Colby getting help with records suit


Continued from page 1A
press release this week.
"Colby has been extremely tenacious and
is one of those true activists on whom we
all depend," Petersen added.
"We are delighted to fund cases in which
citizens, working with their state FOI coali-
tion, are fighting for greater access to infor-
mation," said Charles N. Davis, executive
director of the NFOIC.
The Knight FOI Fund can only go for
fees associated with filing, and not for
attorney charges, but that is not a problem
in Colby's care because is fighting the
county pro se, or as his own attorney.
According to County Attorney Ross
Macbeth, the trial happened over three days


Feb. 9-11, but nothing has been announced
yet.
"There is no judgment as of yet. I am
waiting on a decision. The matter is in liti-
gation, so I really cannot discuss any of the
particulars of the case until after the appeals
process is decided," Macbeth said.
Colby felt the more than $400 million
made available by the Knight Foundation is
a boon for those who wish access to their
local government.
"I am very please to be the first pro se lit-
igator getting the grant. There needs to be a
lot more of it. It does not strengthen the law,
but it does'help me bring this case and oth-
ers before a court," Colby said on
Wednesday.

Thursday.
iSchneider, who was the
passenger in the Jeep, was
taken by ambulance to
Winter Haven Hospital and
was released on Wednesday
with a broken collarbone and
other minor injuries, Rowan
said.
Nacrelli was also taken to
Winter Haven Hospital for
treatment of minor injuries
and was in stable condition,'
according to the PCSO. It
was not clear if Nacrelli was
released from the hospital at
press time.
"Of course our thoughts


and prayers go out to the offi-
cers and families involved in
the accident," Rowan said.
Polk County deputies are
still investigating the use of
seat belts, and .a second
PSCO press release states
that "the deputies are still
investigating the crash they
still have to interview all of
the parties who were
involved in the crash, contin-
ue to take measurements of
the roadway, and do analyses
of the vehicles. Charges will
not be filed until. many of
these tasks can bp complet-
ed."
Rowan stated that
Schneider was wearing a seat
belt, but it was unclear if
Bratten was wearing his at
the time of the accident or if
the seat belt broke loose dur-
ing the collision-.

Juggernauts come to Tanglewood


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Actually, it
ish'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.

Red Devils roll on with



"Go ham, or go home"

Team reaches Elite Eight with win at Berkeley Prep


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
TAMPA The post-sea-
son victories keep coming for
the Avon Park Red Devils,
and on Tuesday they sailed
passed the Berkeley Prep
Buccaneers 71-57 in the
Class 3A Regional Semifinal.
"It's. our year of favor,"
Avon Park head coach Luther
Clemons said after the game.
"It has surpassed so many
things so fast that I am just
along for the ride. We just do
what we do."
Although
Avon Park the Devils are
surpassing all
predictions
this year, and
Berkeley have had their
best season
51 since .1996,
they came off
the bench in
the first half against Berkeley
Prep a little sluggish.
At the end of the first quar-
ter it was 18-13 Buccaneers,
and the Devils were not able
to rebound, literally, and left
the court trailing 30-26 at the
half.
This was after turning it
around in the last two min-
utes of play, which perhaps
served as a sign that Avon
Park was starting to wake up
after the long trip to the
coast.
"It just took us a little
while to get going," Clemons
said. "It's a long ride. We left
at 4 o'clock and got here at

six. It took us a little bit of
time to get going, that's all."
But, after the half, the
Devils picked up the tempo,
in typical Avon Park fashion,
pushing the Buccaneers to
keep the pace of a man-to-
man break out.
"We picked up the tempo,
and looked for the rebound.
We went down low and
inside for the second half,"
said Red Devil Alonzo
Robertson, who finished with
a game-high 17 points.
"Going inside is our game.
plan. We have some big
guys," said Clemons.
Clemons said there was no
special'direction, just funda-
mental basketball.
' "I. know a lot of people
think we are doing something
special at half-time, we
don't. It's no big secret," he
said. "We decided to just go
man-to-man in the third.
When we try the 1-3-1 we are
not as aggressive. We just
kind of stand there, so we
changed it up."


Teammates TK Miller and
Vander'kel Clayton echoed
Roberton's assertions.
"We decided that we need-
ed to step it up in the third,"
Miller said. "We came out
flat, and were not getting the
rebounds, so we concentrated
on getting the ball back."
"The second half we came
out to win. Go ham or go
home, that's what we say,"
said Clayton. "We know what
we needed to do, and we had
to get the ball back."
And what is "go ham or go
home?"
"It's just something we say
when we need to remind our-
selves that it's time to play
hard," Clayton said. "Maybe
it would be better to say 'Go
hard or go home."
"Nah, I like 'Go Ham or
Go Home," Robertson said.
"Yep, Go Ham or Go
Home," Miller added with
the same emphasis.
The Devils take their sand-
wich aspirations on the road
to Fort Myers on Saturday to
compete in the top eight
against Bishop Verot (19-10).
, The Vikings defeated
Dunbar, 55-53, Tuesday to
move forward in the state
playoffs, but other than that
score, little is known of the
Devils next opponent.
"I don't know anything
about them," Clemons said.

we do. This is our year of

Baseball goes three for Tuesday


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
County baseball teams
racked up three wins
Tuesday as the early regular
season gets rolling.
Avon Park (2-1, 1-0) got a
strong pitching effort from
Brad Torres, who threw a
complete-game in topping
Tenoroc, 3-2, in district
action.
Torres scattered five hits
while striking out five,
walking just one and giving
up a lone earned run in the
Titans two-run first.
From there he shit. them
down while the offense
chipped its way back into it.
Josh Gordon singled and
stole second before Ty
Jackson brought him home
with a single up the middle..
In the fifth, Chad Marley
brought Cole Jones in with


the tying run before Jackson
broke the tie with an RBI
double in the sixth to score
Gordon.
"They have spent a lot of
time together while working
hard to compete," head
coach Whit Cornell said of
his Devil squad. "Brad
Torres has had several qual-
ity outings and they have
played well behind him. I'm
proud of our team."
Dragons pound
Panthers
Lake Placid (2-2, 1-0)
started off its district sched-
ule in strong fashion,
pounding Mulberry 14-0
behind the pitching and bat-
ting efforts of David
Samperi.
The no runs given up
show, his effectiveness on
the mound, but the lefty also


raked it at the plate, hitting
a triple, blasting a home run
and driving in four.
James Whitehead also
added four RBI on two hits
while Colby Delaney came
through with two knocks.
"I told them that- wee
should change our team
name from the Green
Dragons to the Jekyll and
Hydes," head coach Dan
Coomes joked. "We'll play
real well one game and then
.play terrible, but that's what
we're working through."
Streaks whip
Wildcats
In Sebring, the Blue
Streaks (4-2) rode six-run
first and third innings to. a
13-3 win over visiting
Hardee.

Matt Schurig delivers a pitch Wednesday as SFCC faced Palm Beach State College. Schurig
would pitch well, but the defense behind him and the relief pitching after him couldn't hold
off the visiting panthers in the 11-5, 10-inning loss.

Panther drops halt comeback bid


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK The lax
defense that first showed up
Saturday in a second-game
loss at the. University of
Tampa was back on display
again Wednesday night as
SFCC fell behind visiting
Palm. Beach, came back to
take a late lead and then
opened the floodgates in a
six-run 10th inning for PBE
an 11-5 loss.
The visiting 1
Panthers got on the I
board early with Ben SF(
Carhart denting the
scoreboard with a two-
run shot off SFCC
starter Matt Schurig.
But that was really the
only mistake Schurig made
on the evening as the two-run
second by Palm Beach was
courtesy of three errors.
"He pitched a gem," head
coach Rick Hitt said. "He has
that mindset of hating failure
and that's what you have to
have playing college baseball
with aluminum bats. I just


wish there was a way to
brainwash that into our other
pitchers."
Indeed, over the next six
innings, Schurig experienced
little to no failure in shutting
down the Palm Beach
offense.
His teammates, mean-
while, were chipping their
way back on a Tom Sicking
solo home run in the
SC second.
A few innings later,
1 Greg Smith tripled
and scored on a
CC Sicking ground out
. and Brett Clemens hit
an RBI single to niar-
row the gap a little
more.
Clemens tied it in the
eighth on another run-scoring
base knock and Cody Higgins
came through with a ribbie
rip to right to give the
Panthers the 5-4 lead.
The South Florida bullpen,
however, couldn't hold the
lead as Dante Rosenberg
crushed a solo shot in the top
of the ninth to even things up


again. ,
Sicking looked to end
things with a single and a
passed ball getting him to
second.
Tony Vazquez pinch hit
and grounded to the right
side to get Sicking to third,
but it was there he stayed as
Taed Moses couldn't make
contact on the third strike.
And then it was back to the
combination of erratic pitch-
ing and fielding mistakes the
opened the door in the 10th.
A walk, wild pitch and an.
E-7 brought home the tie-
breaking run, before an
infield hit scored another and
soo Carhart got one up into
the jetstream blowing out
toward right for an all-but-
clinching grand slam.
All-but-clinching because
SFCC (10-7) did load the
bases in the bottom of the
frame, only to see the latest
comeback attempt go for
naught.

Lake Placid Marine tops Central Security


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Lake Placid Marine team
held on for an 18-16 win over
the Central Security team in
Lake Placid Senior Softball
League play on Wednesday,
Feb. 24, at the Lake June Ball
Fields.
The .Mariners cruised into
the last inning with a 10-run
lead that looked like a sure
win, but the Security team
rallied to score eight .times
and had the tying runs on
base when the final out was
mpade.
The Mariners had 22 hits
and would have had several
more if not for great plays by
third baseman .Ken Ferano
and three great catches each
by outfielders Larry Lane and
Dana Hurlbut for the Security
team.
Darrell Richards had a per-
fect day at. the plate for the
Mariners, going 4-for-4 and
Bill Gallager and Jess
Hathaway had three hits each
with Gallager having a triple
and home run among his hits.
Gary Tankersley also had
an inside-the-park home run


for the winners.
The Security team bats
were held in check early with
good fielding by the
Mariners, but in the last
inning they came alive and
batted around. Ferrano was
5-for-5 for the day with two
doubles and Bill Card, Ed
Engler, Larry Lane and Tom
Walsh had three hits each
with Lane legging out an
inside-the-park home run in
the losing effort.
On the other field, the
Lockhart Service Center
team scored a 16-12 victory
over the Michelle Yates
Insurance team.
The combined pitching of
George Quay and Dick
Harmick once again general-
ly held the opposing team in
check.
John Buja, John
Ladensack, Rod Palmer and
Bob Weiss had three hits each
for the Insurers with Buja
and Palmer having triples
among their hits.
Manager Dusty Hensley
continued to lead his team at
the plate and in the field,
covering a lot of ground and


making good catches.
At the plate, Hensley and
Cliff Bluml had three hits
each, but one of the biggest
blows was delivered by
Dorin Quigg, with, a triple
driving in three runs for the
winners.
The late game found the
Harlan Newby fan club from
Wisconsin out in force again,
but this time, although they
tried, there was not much to
cheer about for his Seminole
Tire team.
Schooni's Restaurant rout-
ed the Tireman by a score of
26-12.
Roy Oke lead the
onslaught with a 5-for-5 day
with three ence-clearing
home runs and two doubles
driving in 11 of the teams
runs.
Andy Timermanis was also
5-for-5, including two dou-
bles, and scored five runs.
Don Cunningham and
Hugh Grimaldi had four hits
each with Cunningham leg-
ging out an inside-the-park
home run and Jim Guild, Paul
Brand and John Kloet had
three hits each for the win-


ners.
The "Tiremen" were led at
the plate by Howard Carney
with four hits, Richard
Rivera and George Lavoie
with three hits each and Ken
Morgan with a blast over the
left-field fence.
Rivera and Lavoie both
had doubles among their hits
with Lavoie's hit over the
head of the slow center field-
.er, Don Cunningham.
Rocky Soccarras and
Harlan Newby also had two
hits each in the loss.
The .results of the day
tightened up the league
standings.
Michelle Yates Insurance
and Schooni's moved into a
virtual tie for the league lead
with records of 10-6 and 9-5,
respectively.
The win by Lockhart
moved them into third place
with a record of 7-7 followed
by Seminole Tire at 7-8,
Central Security at.5-8 and
Lake Placid Marine at 5-9.
League play continues
through March.

Baseball teams off to solid starts


Continued from 1B
Other than the intrigue of
head coach Hoppy Rewis
facing his son Steve, the
Wildcat skipper, this one
didn't have much drama for
long.
After Dylan Sanders
worked through the first, the
Sebring bats started up, plat-
ed two and loaded the bases
for a Josh Chavis grand slam
for a 6-0 lead.
After tacking on a run in
the second on a Gus
Williams single, Riley
McKenna jacked a three-run
shot to left before Cody
Hoffner ripped a two-RBI
single and later scored on a
Hardee error for a 13-0 lead.
The 'Cats tried getting
back into it, scoring three,
but it wasn't enough to pre-
vent the early, mercy-rule
ending after five.
"They (Hardee) are a
solid team and they hit the
ball hard," assistant coach
Travis Rapp said. "But top
to bottom, we're a pretty
good team. We have to keep
working on the fundamen-
tals and keeping an edge,

The Way Church
showing movie
SEBRING At 6:30 p.m.

the Gates of Splendor."
In 1956 the world was
shocked by the killing of
five missionaries in .
Ecuador by a native group,
then called Auca Indians.
They were the most savage
tribe known.
"Beyond the Gates of
Splendor" is a feature
length documentary film
experience about the
Waodani Indians and the
missionary men and women
who have given their lives
to reach them. This power-
ful emotional journey
begins with the Waodani
describing their way of life
before the missionaries vis-
ited them in 1956.
Narrated by Steve Saint,
the son of one of the mis-
sionaries and each of the
wives of the men who died,
the audience takes a nostal-
gic trip back in time to see
how the men and women
came to meet up with each
other in Ecuador. An inspir-
ing story of forgiveness and
love.

The beauty of a rose garden


Have you have considered
what the true definition of
beauty is? We often have the
tendency to compare our-
selves with one another
regarding our outward
appearance. The tendency to
look at someone else and
think how sweet she is and
how beautiful, is common.
Then, we may even say to
ourselves, I wish I was beau-
tiful and sweet like her.
God's word gives the defini-
tion of true beauty in His
sight, and one may develop
their beauty just in the same
way a rose obtains its true,
beauty explained in John 15.
There was a rose garden
that was dry and withered
up. The weeds had taken
over and were mostly all that
could be seen. The sight was
unattractive and bare.
However, there was potential
for the garden to be restored.
Plowing and pulling of
weeds with deep roots were
necessary -over an extended
period of time. There were at
least two bushes that had
new beautiful buds, as well
as old dead buds that needed
to be pruned. By doing so,
these two rose bushes could
possibly be rejuvenated.
However, there were other
rose bushes that had become
dry and limp with no life left
that had to be pulled and
done away with.
The next step was to plant
new rose bushes-that were to'
be transferred from another
garden that was full of life.


These
particular
bushes
didn't
have roses
yet, but
.the possi-
bilities
., were
Come To great.
After the
The River new bush-
Leslie Deese es were
k planted,
the garden needed to be
tended to on a regular basis
by being watered. The weeds
needed to be pulled consis-
tently to prevent them from
taking over once again.
With continuing this
process over a period of
time, the rose garden began
to blossom and show its true
beauty. This garden wasn't
like the other garden that the
new rose bushes came from,
but the garden developed
new beauty of its own.
Most women want to fit in
see them selves as beautiful.
I'm not sure how you would
compare yourself in regard
to the old rose bushes. Is the
outward beauty what makes
a woman most attractive?
How can one obtain new
beauty and fit in more easily
such as the new rose bushes
described.
God's word expresses a
primary trait of a woman to
be admired as one loves the
Lord dearly. "Charm is
deceitful and beauty is pass-
ing, But the woman who


fears the Lord, she shall be
praised." (Proverbs 31:30).
People often look at the
exterior; however, true beau-
ty is often seen by her
inward appearance.
"Do not let your adorn-
ment be merely outward-
arranging the hair, wearing
gold, or putting on fine
apparel- rather let it be the
hidden person of the heart,
with the incorruptible beauty
of a gentle and quiet spirit,
which is very precious in the
sight of God" (I Peter 3:3,4).
Often women live life on
a daily basis and if she does
not take care herself and
maintain her relationship
with God, she may end up
looking tired, feeling, limp,
and helpless. How can a
woman in such a low state
be revived? She must first
realize that God loves her
and He can still use in a
tremendous way in the -
future. Some tender loving
care is necessary to help
bring her back to life. John
15:1-8 explains the process
that takes place.
Verses 1, 2 stress that
Jesus Christ is the true vine.
His father is the one that
takes care of us through His
son. We are considered to
be the branches. God's job is
to get rid of dead branches
that do not produce fruit.
This is also called pruning.

dent. She can be reached at

to Better Hea rt Health
DC~~~f H..incdiLncoiL


FAMILY FEATURES


heart disease or cardiovascular disease seems like something that happens to other people. But the truth is, about one
third of adult Americans have .some form of cardiovascular disease. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that
80 million Americans that's one of every three adults live with one or more types of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
The toll this takes is enormous. In addition to reducing quality of life and raising health care costs, heart disease kills more people.
than any other disease, including cancer. The CDC estimates that every 37 seconds, someone dies from heart disease.
.What,can you do'to reduce your risk of heart disease? Following these five steps can help you take control of your heart health and
.put you on the path to a healthier life.


1.Know the Risk Factors.
"Knowledge is power. Once you know what
behaviors and.conditions contribute to the
:'.problem, you can take action.
u Unhealthy Diet. Foods high in saturated
fats and cholesterol raise blood pressure lev-
els and promote atherosclerosis. Too much
sodium causes high blood pressure levels
as well.
Physical Inactivity. A sedentary lifestyle
impacts blood pressure, the amount of good
cholesterol and triglycerides in the body,.
and weight.. .
: Tobacco Use. Tobacco smoke contains more
than 4800 chemicals, many of them damag-
ing to the heart. Cigarette smoking promotes
atherosclerosis (narrowing of the arteries)
.and raises the levels of blood clotting factors.
Nicotine raises blood pressure and heart rates,
S and carbon monoxide reduces the amount
of oxygen the blood can carry. Exposure
to second-hand smoke can significantly
increase the risk of heart disease in non-
smokers.
Heredity, Genetic factors may play some
role in high blood pressure, heart disease
and other vascular conditions.

2.Know Your Numbers.
High blood pressure and high cholesterol can
damage your heart and blood, vessels. But
without testing them, you probably won't
know whether or not you have these conditions.
It's important that you know what your levels
are, to keep track of them over time, and
to share them with care givers and family
members. Using online personal health manage-
ment applications like Mayo Clinic Health
Manager, can simplify how you organize and


track your numbers and assist in determining
your personal blood pressure and cholesterol
goals.
Adults should have their blood pressure
checked at least every two years. You'may
need more frequent checks if your numbers
aren't optimal, or if you have other risk fac-
tors for heart disease. Optimal blood pres-
sure is less than 120/80 millimeters of mer-
cury.
Adults should have their cholesterol meas-
ured at least once every five years.
You may need more frequent testing if your
numbers aren't optimal or if you have other
risk factors for heart disease. The optimal
cholesterol levels are determined by the
number or risk factors and other diagnosis..

3.Stop Using
Tobacco Products.
When you quit smoking, your risk of heart dis-
ease is dramatically reduced within just one
year. No matter how long or how much you've
smoked, you start reaping rewards as soon as
you quit. Talk to your doctor about effective
ways to stop smoking. In addition, you can
find online tools and information at
www.smokefree.gov
www.lungusa.org
www.mayoclinic.com

4.Eat a Heart-Healthy Diet.
Many doctors recommend the DASH diet -
DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop
Hypertension. That may not sound like a
tempting menu description, but eating to pro-
tect your heart really can be delicious and sat-
isfying.


Reducing the amounts of saturated and,
trans fat you eat is key. Sources of saturated
fat include beef, butter, cheese, milk, and
coconut and palm, oils. Check package labels
for "partially hydrogenated" to avoid trans
fats. ..
Heart-healthy eating isn't all about cutting
things out. The DASH diet is rich in fruits and
vegetables (the recommendation is 5 servings
a day), whole grains and other foods that can
help protect your heart, help you control your
weight, and improve overall health. Learn more
at www.dashdiet.org..

5.Get Moving.
Physical activity can reduce your risk of fatal
heart disease. It helps you control weight and
reduces your chances of developing other.
conditions that may put a strain on your heart,
such as high blood .,pressure, high cholesterol,
and diabetes. It also reduces stress, which may
be a factor in heart disease.
Guidelines recommend exercising vigorously
at least 150 minutes per week.
: Keep in mind that gardening, housekeeping,
taking the stairs and walking the dog all,.'
count toward your total time.
Try to maintain a BMI (body mass index) of 25
to 30.

It's easier than you think to prevent and man-
age heart disease. Taking small steps can make a
big difference. Start following these
five steps, and track your progress using an appli-
cation like Mayo Clinic Health Manager at
www.healthmanager.mayoclinic.com. It's free and
you don't have to be a Mayo Clinic patient to use it.
