Co-chair Marlene Barger led the presentation, along with members Bill Compton and Jon Draper. The committee does not recommend creating the position of town administrator at this time. Its findings indicate that improving the process of decision making and clarifying responsibilities is an essential first step to any proposed change, and may make the need for an administrator unnecessary. It was after interviewing town staff, the mayor, council members, the police chief, town clerk and attorney, that the committee focused its attention on process, rather than personnel. The report said, “The division of responsibilities among the various departments and insights into how information flows guided the deliberations of the committee and were critical to our ultimate recommendations.” The committee reported certain facts set their direction. The town is in good economic shape and has been stable for the last three years. Citizen feedback indicates satisfaction with the town’s current operations. Despite citizen satisfaction, however, council members feel there is a need for a “go-to” person NEWS-SUN Highlands County’s Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Wednesday-Thursday, August 24-25, 2011www.newssun.comVolume 92/Number 100 | 50 cents www.newssun .com 079099401001 HighLow 93 76Complete Forecast PAGE 12A Chance of T-storms in the afternoon Forecast Question: Are you watching what could become Hurricane Irene?

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK — The Avon Park council selected Interim City Manage r Julian Deleon to be the permanent manager at its meeting Monday night. “It could have gone either way. I am just thankful for the opportunity,” Deleon said after being chosen. According to City Attorney Gerald Buhr, Deleon won the council ranking on a vote of 4-1. Council member Brenda Gray voted for another candidate in the ranking ballots, but voted yes to the motion to select Deleon, making the official vote unanimous. “The majority rules, so yes,” Gray Deleon named AP city manager Irenes aim shifts See DELEON, page 6A By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING — With all indicators that Irene will go east of Florida, Interim Emergency Operations Director Scott Canaday says diligence and preparedness are still the optimal watch words. “Everything you need to know at any time is on the website at www.hceoc.org, but right now we are expecting Irene to turn further to the east,” Canaday said on Monday. Irene grew as it left the Dominican Republic on Monday into a Category 2 hurricane, according to the U.S. National Weather Service, and could possibly reach a Category 3 when it hits the warmer waters off Florida and heads up the east coast. “We still need to keep a watch on it, but as of right now, it is predicted to miss us,” Canaday said. “But we are keeping a close watch on it and our website will turn red in the center if anything turns for the worse,” Canaday said. “We are as ready as we can be, but right now, we are just watching and waiting.” If a hurricane does hit central Florida, the county wants citizens to remember to never run a generator inside, make sure there is always adequate ventilation away from open windows and tune your radio to WWOJ FM 99.1 for emergency updates. Despite the predictions, according to the HCEOC website it is still a good idea to keep an emergency kit on hand in case Irene, or any hurricane, takes a turn for the worse. Each kit should contain at least the following items: Storm may miss state, but authorities advise preparedness See IRENE, page 7A LP citizen panel offers suggestions Courtesy graphic This is the current town organizational chart, with all department heads reporting to the mayor.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK — Richard and Lucy Derkman were honored by the Historical Society of Avon Park during the society’s fifth annual Pioneers Picnic Saturday at the Community Center. Approximately 160 graduates of Avon Park High School joined the celebration, partly to congratulate the Derkman, partly to refresh cherished memories. As it happened, Richard Derkman, class of 1941, was the senior graduate there. Derkman thought that might be the reason he and his wife were selected as Pioneers of the Year — “It’s because I’m so old,” Derkman said. Derkman grew up in housing for the crate mill — then a major producer of shipping boxes for fruit and vegetables. He arrived in Highlands County with his family in 1927, when he was 3 years old. He warned the audience that his talk “would be part factual, part hearsay, and part I made up.” “There was no town to speak of,” Derkman said. “There were no telephones and no correctional institute.” Streets were covered with saw dust, which didn’t matter because there were no motorized vehicles. During World War II, he worked as a mechanic on the military training planes used locally. He then served two years in the merchant marine. Returning home, he worked for Florida Power for 34 years. Lucy Derkman arrived in Highlands County in 1952 to teach school. She was 28 and Richard 31 when they met — his nephew was one of her favorite students. Their first date was the APHS opening football game over in Ft. Meade in 1955 They married that Dec. 28, and since have raised two children. Lucy Derkman taught physical education, becoming a major supporter of youth sports, including covering local teams for the Avon Park Sun, where she was sports editor, the first female one in the state. She was honored several years ago when the public softball field was named after her. Now retired, Lucy Derkman has brought her energy to the Friends of the Avon Park Library. Richard Derkman, however, had a different idea of retirement. “When I retired, I retired,” he said, a big smile on his face. “I take a lawn chair and go out to the clay pit and watch the machines dig dirt.” He also watches demolitions and construction sites — any place where men and large industrial machines work together. He’s delighted with the soon-to-begin widening of U.S. 27 up to the county line. “The economy has been so bad, it’s been hard to find a job to watch,” he said. “It’s just been a wonderful life,” said Lucy Derkman when accepting the traditional sun bonnet and apron. “If you’ve lived here and not enjoyed it, there is something wrong with you.” Page 2ANews-SunWednesday, August 24, 2011www.newssun.com pub block; 5.542"; 4.5"; Black; publishers block; 0 0 0 0 8 0 3 4 Aug. 20 263340444652x:3Next jackpot $4 millionAug. 17 1815444647x:2 Aug. 13 42128374144x:3 Aug. 22 48182627 Aug. 21 37171828 Aug. 20 414213134 Aug. 19 411152122 Aug. 22 (n) 8551 Aug. 22 (d) 6941 Aug. 21 (n) 4820 Aug. 21 (d) 8669 Aug. 22(n) 431 Aug. 22 (d) 102 Aug. 21 (n) 604 Aug. 21(d) 192 Aug. 19 23336371 Aug. 16 58304416 Aug. 12 101215281 Aug. 9 832363715 Aug. 20 217232847 PB: 36 PP: 2Next jackpot $47 millionAug. 17 1828314852 PB: 37 PP: 4 Aug. 13 912355058 PB: 4 PP: 2 Note: Cash 3 and Play 4 drawings are twice per day: (d) is the daytime drawing, (n) is the nighttime drawing.

It is only responsible for the board to want to protect the children under their care from bad people and bad influences. Will there be unforeseen issues because of using Facebook? Y es, but the answer is not sticking your head in the sand concerning social media, and the discussion of the issue shows that the school board is behind the technology curve. They admit that they do not understand the level of privacy settings or grouping that can happen on social media. Some don’t even use it. Technology, especially free technology, should be used in a budget that is struggling to just provide instructors and lights. Facebook has been used to foster discussion from a global level down to the local level. It can teach social skills in the next generation of communications. It can even be used to communicate with a person at the middle of a protest or revolution. Remove the friending between teacher and student, and you also remove that opportunity for intervention and some level of protection. You also create issues like the one in Missouri, where a teacher is suing to block a law with similar restrictions since it makes it illegal for her to Facebook with her own children, who are also students at the school where she teaches. The kids are already out there. Please don’t shut them off from accessing a teacher and education. What if a student is considering dropping out of school? Maybe a teacher sees the posts and could steer the kid into a dif ferent direction that keeps them in school. Only if they are friends on Facebook, though. There are many, many documented cases where kids have been steered away from bad influences and even suicide because of teacher intervention. Everyone uses social media to gain support in tough times and express their frustrations and air out their problems. Kids especially so. Use the free tools where the kids already congregate. Don’t throw them out because you have no idea how they work. Educate the teachers and students on how to use the tool, but don’t throw away the shovel because you could cut your foot. Will all teachers want to participate? No. W ill every student want to befriend their teacher? No, and that’s OK. Do all teachers think that their influence continues outside the classroom? No. Matter of fact, some feel that their responsibility ends with educating and does not extend to nurturing. “We are not babysitters,” is the cry from frustration some have expressed, but a teacher has a lasting impact on everyone that passes through their class. Structure it, guide it, enhance the curriculum by using it, but please don’t try to stop it. Look forward. It is an old adage that when trying to remember how to spell principal versus principle, you just have to remember that you have a “pal” in school. But under this policy, the students won’t have those same “pals” in cyberspace. Use Facebook, don't prohibit it The school board may be making a mistake by limiting the access and prohibiting the befriending of students and teachers on Facebook. Look at our own back yardEditor: I have been folowing the Highlands County commissioners and their decisions about the cut backs and what they propose. It is my opinion that they are not thinking about the people of this county with their cuts and their spending. Aroadway that is in no way needed at this time with people leaving the county or not moving into the county is a lose-lose project. Let me put it in a simple way: if I come to you and say “I” will give you $10 but you have to spend $40, so how is it with me going $30 in the hole when “I” cannot af ford making it worthwhile? Remember Jack (Richie) when you were campaining on how you were going to be a people’s commissioner? Then with all the crime going on and more to come, with no jobs and no money for people, how is cutting our county sheriff’s department to nil doing the people good? In case you do not know, or remember, Commissioner (Barbara) Stewart has had a long running personal problem with our sheriff. In every matter concerning the sheriff’s department Stewart has had an objection. I am wondering is this “a party different”? In my opinion, it is, what else can it be? When it comes to other money such as giving an undo wage increase to a county worker, Stewart is Yes on the spot with no problem, instead of let’s see if it is earned. Are the commissioners going to start a good ole boy and girl club? Or are you going to be fair and objective in “all” your decisions? Here in Sun ’N Lakes Lake Placid we have crime right at our door, and soon, if we don’t have the law, it will be inside our door. It might do some of the commission good to take a good look at crime increase in this county. C.F. Neeley Lake PlacidCountry firstEditor: Shortly after the inauguration of Barrack Obama, Sen. Mitch McConnell, speaking for the Republican party, said, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one term president.” This declaration was made at a time when the national debt was at an all time high, due to the Bush tax cuts, and fighting two unnecessary wars. The outgoing Secretary of T reasury, Henry Paulson, insisted that unless an immediate transfer of huge funds were made available to the banks, our financial system would be in instant crisis. The priority of Republican policy becamel et’s frustrate, hamstring and sabotage every attempt of the Obama administration to enact any legislation that will solve any problem the country is having if it will reflect favorably on Obama. They undertook to sabotage Medicare, Social Security, unemployment benefits, and any other program that might benefit the middle working class of America if these programs would reflect favorably on Obama. After two years of legislation guerrilla warfare, its scorched-earth policies have forced tax concessions for millionaires as the price of extending unemployment benefits. They have frustrated the country’s ability to timely increase its debt ceiling (causing a down grading of our credit ) by insisting on shrinking government without any cohesive plan and blocking any attempt to increase taxes whatsoever on our wealthiest citizens and corporations. As the stock market falls to new levels, the reality is that the ultra rich can more easily ride out a temporary contraction of their wealth while the ordinary citizen loses his job, his home, his 401K and any other thing of value accumulated by a lifetime of hard work. They will bring us to the brink of recession if necessary. The important thing, the only thing is to prevent Obama’s re-election. Republican hopeful candidates, through innuendo and slander, maintain constant barrage of criticism, holding Obama solely at fault for all of the ills that now befall our people. They ask whether we approve “of the direction the President is taking the country?” as if their activities to frustrate every beneficial step taken had nothing to do with our current malaise. Randy Ludacer Lake PlacidHow can these decisions be made?Editor: How can the town council and county commissioners, in good faith, make the following decisions? 1. Unsecured schools – If a tragedy (God forbid) occurred at our schools, could the council and commissioners be held responsible to a degree due to cut backs of the DARE program and Resource Of ficers? 2. Recreation fees – Do they really mean to say that parents who already pay for registration and uniforms will now pay to play too? They need to consider the family with three or four children. What about the children being raised by grandparents on a fixed income without outside help? These children are entitled to play sports just as much as children from a higher-income family. 3. Birthday parties – This year we held my granddaughter’s party at the park (ball fields). We had a bounce house and cleaned up after. Everyone went home happy. Next year, that same party will cost $100 for reservation. My question: Are reservations mandatory? Because if they are, the party would be over before it got started. 4. Fall Festival – “Quite frankly,” Mr. Brown, there are good reasons to move to Devane Park from the football field. A. Some Halloween evenings are quite warm and I have observed many a grandparent or mothers with babies resting on benches underneath shade trees. B. Devane Park is a much smaller are, therefore it is easier to keep an eye on the children, which is very important. Dorothy Smalls Lake Placid The axiom in recent presidential elections is that the left and right stay put, while the middle shifts just enough to determine the winner. When the middle moved to the right we got Bush; when it slid left we got Obama. What makes the 2012 campaign so intriguing — and frightening — is that it may be determined by two other elements: the far right and the far left. The role of extremists — arch conservatives and progressives — is nothing new. They’ve always sought to move the needle in their direction and then, when push came to voting, rallied around the candidate of their party. If they didn’t it was ruinous, as in 2000 when Ralph Nader mounted a third-party challenge from the left, causing the defeat of Democrat Al Gore. So in 2012, which extreme group will rally and which will revolt? The conservative right, increasingly bound to absolute positions and refusal to compromise, may be gaining enough strength to derail the Republican Party’ s chances in ‘12. Two of its frontrunners, Gov. Rick Perry and Rep. Michele Bachmann, are pitching a brand of extremism that works in primaries but has far less chance of success in a general election. The Wall Street Journal editorial board worries that Bachmann seems “less principled than opportunistic” and Perry has too much “muscular religiosity” among other negatives. It dismisses Mitt Romney as simply “weak,” and wishes that “someone still off the field will step in and run.” That someone would presumably be less beholden to the extreme right, perhaps New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is said to be reconsidering entering the race. Meanwhile, although President Obama has nothing to fear in the nominating process, he is being pecked by progressives. Vermont’s Bernie Sanders, the Senate’s most liberal member, said recently it would be a “good idea” if Obama faced primary challenges. Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin called upon progressives to be more outspoken in criticizing the president. Some liberal talkshow hosts and opinion writers are even less restrained in showing anger, claiming that Obama hasn’t done enough to retain the support of those who worked so diligently on his ‘08 campaign. Compared to the far right, however, which has virtually captured the policy-making wing of the Republican party, the far left is fragmented and has limited influence. The true objective in presidential politics is to elect a party rather than a person. Idealists on both edges wish that were not the case. They hate giving ground to candidates and causes that don’t fully measure up to their vision. What should worry Republicans is that its extreme right has been emboldened by no-holdsbarred, no-chance-of-compromise positions. Tim Pawlenty, once thought to be a serious GOPcontender, said as he abruptly dropped out, “I brought a rational, established, credible strong record of results, but the audience was looking for something different.” Pawlenty is conveniently ignoring his underwhelming performances in two debates, but his assessment of those currently crafting the Republican message is spot on. What should worry Democrats is that the far left has been discouraged, if not paralyzed, by Obama’s failures — despite the fact that most were caused by Republican obstructionism. A halfhearted campaign ef fort by disillusioned liberals could be enough to tip the election the wrong way. Progressives wish for a president who would speak more forcefully on controversial issues without worrying so much about appeasing the other party. Conservatives wish for a president who could be unyielding on issues that have stirred so much anger within their ranks. As 2012 draws near, both extreme factions should be careful what they wish for. Peter Funt is a writer and speaker and can be reached at www.CandidCamera.com.

Finding a replacement in such a specialized field will take months, Superintendent Wally Cox warned. School board says goodbye to Solomon Associated PressTALLAHASSEE — The Florida state Board of Education is seeking a modest increase of $117.54 per student, or 1.88 percent, for kindergarten through 12th grade next year. The panel, though, wants a 24.4 percent overall increase for community and state colleges in its annual budget request approved Tuesday. The board also declined to ask the Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott to resume state funding for 26 public radio and television stations. Scott vetoed the $4.8 million lawmakers had appropriated for the stations in the current budget year, which began July 1. Some board members, though, said they might be open to further discussion. The panel did agree to add $8.7 million to implement state-approved curricula in Florida’s voluntary prekindergarten program. Board of Ed seeks modest per-student increase

Deleon asked to be excused from the meeting when the discussion for city manager came up on the agenda, but Buhr reminded him that any affirmation by the council to excuse him could violate the Sunshine Law. “If you had just gotten up and left, that would have been one thing, but asking to be excused, that could be construed as a request,” Buhr corrected. The search for a new city manager began on March 14 with the 3-1 vote to fire Bruce Behrens. Deleon was selected to be interim city manager by the council within a few days. Deleon has served as both Public Works director and interim city manager since March, and entered the running in a field of 30-plus candidates for city manager at the last possible minute. “I was not sure if I wanted the job or not,” Deleon told the News-Sun on July 6. The city is facing multiple lawsuits from employees and is recovering from financial struggles with decreased ad valorem taxes this year. “We have a good, balanced budget, but we had to lay some folks off,” Deleon said at the August budget meeting. “But we have serviced some debt and we are building a reserve.” The choice came down to three interviews last Friday, and contender Kenneth Fields left the race via e-mail on Monday afternoon, leaving Deleon and Lillie Latimore in the race. “I really think everyone interviewed well,” Mayor Sharon Schuler said after the meeting. “But I think that right now, Julian will be more beneficial to the city than Latimore. We just have to work out the contract now.” Deleon and city staff helped raise the ceiling for city manager pay earlier this year to a $105,000 cap, but stated that he only asked for $92,000. “It is the same that Latimore asked for in her application. But we will see how the contract works out,” Deleon said. Deleon lives in Lake Placid now, but is required to move to Avon Park as part of the deal. “Yep, I will have to sell my home there and figure something out,” Deleon said. Ex-mayor Tom Macklin approached the podium to speak at the end of the meeting, and began by congratulating the council on allowing public input into the management selection, but decided to refrain when Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray stood up to leave the meeting. “Ms. Gray left the meeting last time I tried to speak, so I will refrain from speaking tonight until she is present,” Macklin said. “This is the second time she left the meeting during citizens not on the agenda. The meeting was not over,” Macklin said after the meeting. Continued from page 1A Deleon named APmanager By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK — No doubt about it, there is something in the water in Avon Park and a panel from the Florida Rural Water Association selected a city sample as the best tasting in the state. According to Interim City Manager Julian Deleon at the Monday council meeting, the city’s Public Works and Utilities Department won an award for the “best tasting water contest” in Daytona on Aug. 9. Ann Shrum, the city’s chief water plant operator, along with Jim Bedingfield, the city’s chief waste water operator, were on hand Monday to accept the award from FRWAwater circuit rider Jason Southerland. “We have been entering this for over 10 years, and I think this is something the city can be proud of,” Shrum said after the meeting. “There were over 1,300 applicants, and Avon Park had the best tasting water,” Southerland agreed. The city’s one quart sample on ice was chosen for its taste, odor, clarity, touch and quench factor, according to Southerland. Avon Park was selected by a panel of system experts, according to Shrum, and the city’s water will represent Florida in the upcoming national competition in Washington D.C. early next year. The city public works department serves more than 8,500 customers currently, according to Deleon.

According to a press release from the HCSO, it was reported that two girls were approached at around 5 p.m. by a white male in a dark colored vehicle who offered them pizza to get into the vehicle with him. The girls did not approach the vehicle and were not harmed. Awarning about the incident has been circulating on local residents' Facebook walls the last few days. Anyone with informatio n is requested to contac t Deputy Cara Moseley a t 402-7250.

Fletcher was transported to Highlands Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Down was arrested less than two hours after the shooting. Additionally, another suspect, Juan Antonio Briseno, 21, was arrested for murder Friday. He allegedly supplied the revolver used to shoot Fletcher. Awitness to the shooting fled the scene, Carr said, and Downs allegedly fired shots at the fleeing witness. According to the arrest report, Downs argued with Briseno about who was going to shoot Fletcher. Witnesses report two shots were fired, including the one that killed Fletcher, and then as Downs returned to the Chevrolet Avalanche he was riding in with Briseno, a third shot was fired. It is believed tha t the third shot was accidental and was Downs shooting himself in the leg as he fled. Athird individual stated in the report that he had taken the gun and was told by Downs and Briseno to “throw it in the lake.” The third man hid the gun at his aunt’s house and buried two spent shell casings, the report said.

Continued from page 1A Irenes track moving east to ensure effective oversight. The committee discovered some adjustments do have to be made, including at the operational level in training, employee oversight, accountability, communication and finances in order for the town to become more efficient. Existing responsibilities within some departments could be adjusted to provide better checks and balances in the oversight of operation. The committee also found a need for improved communications throughout the town’s organizational structure. The key to effective change, the committee reported, was a “Process Improvement Chart,” developed by committee member Jon Draper. Simply put, the flowchart outlines the process of instituting official actions, beginning with identifying areas of need, prioritizing those needs, developing goals and a list of indicators to measure success, or the lack of it. One of the chart’s most important advantages, committee members said, is its built in capacity to review and adjust ideas and actions at several points along the way. The committee made no bones about the fact this kind of system relies on citizen participation and support, and that town officials, including elected officers, will have a increased work load. In fact, an involved citizenry is one of the cornerstones of the proposed plan. Avolunteer panel of senior technical mentors is proposed, which would supply town staff with expertise. While the processing chart is radically changed, the organizational chart remains the same. The mayor acts as the “goto” contact person. The police department, the public works director, the town clerk and the utilities director all report to the mayor. The accounting office, the deputy clerk and the office assistant, report to the town clerk. The committee reported that advantages to developing a new process plan and keeping the current organization chart are: it costs less, has measurable benefits, maintains two-layer management and provides a central leadership figure. The committee strongly advised a review of the process improvement chart system after one year. If all is going well, the town may stay the course. If not, the committee provides further alternatives. It created optional structures, for example, where the police chief or the town clerk would be the town administrator, or the position of a town administrator be created. Continued from page 1A Graphic provided by Lake Placid T he process improvement flowchart is meant to facilitate the work of the town government. It provides a step by step process, with multiple mandates to review a work in progress. T he goal is to find out early if suggestions are working, or need revision, and then provide a structure to do so efficiently. Ideas offered to help streamline Lake Placid government

SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, August 24, 2011 NASCAR This Week3B Courtesy photo T he 2011 Sebring Blue Streaks, under new head coach LaVaar Scott, worked through a grueling summer conditioning program to get r eady for a tough season schedule. Scott, below right, is understandably anxious to get the season started. Countdown to kickoff By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING –The papers were scattered around the desk of his office, signifying LaVaar Scott’s biggest change in his first year as the Sebring head football coach. “It’s mostly the administrative stuff that is different for me,” he said in an interview Monday. “The rest hasn’t really hit, or I’m not sure it will because I’ve got such great assistants that help so much so that I don’t feel that part of it.” And as there was a change at the top, so too will there be changes this season as the Streaks lost the flash-and-dash stalwarts of the last two season’s, quarterback Matt Grubb and wide-out Devin Clarke. “We’ll be a running team primarily, I-formations, pro-sets,” Scott said. “We’ll throw it some, but it’s going to start with the run, playing smash-mouth.” Davaris Faulk will take over the signal calling and brings the added elements of being a left-handed thrower and an elusive and strong runner. The backfield will see Damion Thompson return for what should be a strong senior season and big things are expected from Jake Bryan in the running game. “He was our sack leader on defense, but I think he’ll be very effective running the ball for us,” Scott said. But while the game plan is there, with the new system, early in the proceedings, it is a work in progress. The strength of the team, Scott sees at this point, is the defense. “We’ll get after it,” he said. “We’ve got a lot of speed on the defense and we attack. We’ve got our top seven returning players there and the defense may have to carry us for a bit until the offense starts to click and get into the flow.” Blue Streaks did work, now ready to play See STREAKS, Page 4B News-Sun photo courtesy of JAME S TAYLOR The 2011 Lake Placid Green Dragons will see some new faces among contributors this season, along with some new teams on their district schedule. By JAMES TAYLOR Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID – The Lake Placid Green Dragons look towards the 2011 season to recapture some of the magic from two years ago when they posted a 6-4 winning season. At the same time, they attempt to leave behind last year that fell short of expectations as they finished with a 3-8 record. “We were hit with injuries pretty good (last year), the year before we did not have them.” said Green Dragon head coach Jason Holden. “We’re always one deep pretty good, but we had three or four out at one time, five guys out for several games consecutively and that’s what killed us.” At the end of practice, Holden addressed his players, letting them know that winning is important, but as long they put their best effort and leave everything on the field, they would still come out winners. “You can lose a game 40-0 and leave there winners if you gave it your all,” Holden told his players, “And you can win a game 40-0 and come out losers. Always do your best.” Holden would use this reference in telling his players that their priorities should be God, family, football and school. Especially when it came to grades and how important they were to play and to get into college. “People always look back in their lives and say ‘I wish I did more’.” Holden told his players, “Nobody ever looks back at school and says ‘I wish I did less’and if there is somebody out there that says that, I will show you a loser. Don’t be the person who looks back years from now and wishes they did more.” The new season brings new changes. Players graduate and new ones join the ranks. This year is no different as Lake Placid seeks to find a quarterback to replace Kirk Veley. “Right now we have two guys for quarterback, Tyler Kelsen and Robert Walton.” Holden said. “Both shine in different areas, so going into Friday night, both are going to see about equal playing time.” “I am not a guy who likes rotating, I like to have one quarterback,” added Holden. “Hopefully one guy is going to step and be that starting quarterback for the regular season. But if not and w e have to keep rotating, then that is what we will do.” It also does not hurt tha t A.J. Gayle returns in the backfield. Afreshman last year, the running back is as strong as ever and looks real good running the ball, according to Holden. Holden also mention Tommy Bunton as a playe r on the verge of great things. “He has everything he needs to be a great offensive lineman, he just has not put it all together yet,” stated Holden “It’s mostly confidence, I believe that once he realizes how good he is, he is going to be good for us up front.” Another change this season for the Green Dragons is the district that they will be competing in – the newly formatted District 6-4Awith Avon Park, Sarasota Booker, Dragons look to bounce back ‘ You can lose a game 40-0 and leave there winners if you gave it your all. ’JASONHOLDEN Lake Placid head coach See LP, Page 4B By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comWith barely any time to rest after their Dixie Ozone World Series repeat win and the ensuing celebration, the Sebring All-Stars were back on the road, this time to upstate New York, for this weeks’103-team tournamen t at the Cooperstown Dreams Park complex. But even if rest was needed, it didn’t show, as this team can seemingly hit in its sleep. The tone was set early as Trey Frazier lead off Sunday morning’s opener with a home run on the way to an 11-5 win over West Millford, NJ. They then went grandslam happy in a 38-1 annhialation of the Jet Box Baseball Club out o f Michigan in Sunday afternoon’s contest, with Frazie r hitting one out with the bases loaded and Jimmy Peck going the grand salami route not once, but twice. Adding to the home run barrage were Seth Cannady, Everett Hurst, Josh Crouch and Kyle Helms. They didn’t slow down early Monday, posting a 21-1 win over the Niagra Junio r Purple Eagles of New York, though they had a close call with a 5-4 win over the Orange Crush out o f California. But the boys were able to get that rest, with no morning games Tuesday before a 1:45 Team Sebring continues run By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK — With depth at the quarterback position, the Red Devils look at a competitive season despite having a young team. “We are young, but we are working together,” said head coach Andy Bonjokian. The Devils are coming off of a 3-7 season last year, but were 3-2 in district play and one loss to Tampa Catholic short of qualifying for the playoffs.. Offensively, Bonjokian is using quarterback Ryan Dick to his advantage, adopting the Nevada-born “Pistol” offense. “Ryan has improved greatly over last year, and he was good last year,” Bonjokian said. “He is reading the defense, and is getting better every day.” In the pistol formation, the quarterback is close enough to the line of scrimmage to be able to read the defense and far enough back to give him extra time and a better vision of the field just like in the shotgun. Interchangeable quarterback and half back Jarvielle Hart compliments Dick at the throwing or running game and provides speed and a threat at receiving as well. Red Devils making moves See AP, Page 4B See DIXIE, Page 4B News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE J arvielle Hart looks to emerge as a multiple threat for the Red Devil offense this season … as receiver, runner and back-up QB.

They attended the University of South Florida contact camp and Scott says they competed very well there. Things didn’t go quite so well at the Sling-and-Shoot camp, but it was the exposure to that level of competition that will help. Back home, Scott has always lead the offseason training and he and the boys stepped it up a notch this summer. “We took it to another level,” he said. “We went from pushing trucks to running in sand pits twice a week, to pushing the truck in the sand pit. Somedays I’d come in and just create things. I might have something down on paper, but if the kids were handling it well, I’d come up with something else and just challenge them. They worked harder than any Sebring team I’ve either coached or played on.” That hard work will likely be needed as the Blue Streaks enter into a new district, stepping up a class to 6Ain the process. The new District 10-6A sees Winter Haven, Lake Gibson, Lakeland-Kathleen and Bartow joining Sebring. “I’m actually happy because we exposed the kids to the schedule pretty early,” Scott said. “Then we’d bring up certain situations in practice like, ‘we’re down to Bartow by 14 points, what are we going to do this second half.’Then we put them out there to get after it. “It has really started to create that mentality in them to not quit and fight for four quarters.” The task, however, will still be daunting, with Sebring the smallest of the schools as well as teams. “They’re going to come out with 50-plus kids while we’re right at about our normal level of around 37,” Scott said. “They don’t have a lot of people that will be playing two ways and we do. We understand that and that’s why we had to step i t up this summer. “It doesn’t matter who i t is, they’re not going to outwork us,” he continued. “Whether it’s Winter Haven, Bartow, Kathleen or Gibson, they’re going to have to play four quarters to bea t us.” First up, however, come Friday’s Kick-Off Classic which sends the Streaks on the road to Moore Haven to take on the Terriers. Continued from 1B Streaks move up a class News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Davaris Faulk takes over the quarterback duties for the 2011 Sebring squad. Clewiston, Dunbar, Gateway Charter and LaBelle. “The districts are a little different, but it’s pretty similar to last year,” Holden said. “We lost Island Coast and picked up Avon Park and Booker. We already played Avon Park so that is nothing new and we don’t know much about Booker, but we still have to prepare to do our best each week.” “I think having more district games in a season makes the season more interesting,” added Holden. “Especially if it is a tight district. Ateam could lose one or two and still win the district or finish in the playoffs.” But first things first, Friday’s Kick-off Classic against visiting Hardee. Though Hurricane Irene could pose some problems, the game is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start at Roger Scarborough Memorial Stadium. Continued from 1B LP set to host Hardee “Jarvielle and Roger Pringle are running for us, and they are definitely a threat,” Bonjokian said. Defensively, the Devils are sticking to the 4-4, using the flexibility of the insideoutside linebackers to stop the run or passing game. “Estevenson Louis is our anchor on defense. Dylan Brown on the line and juniors Lacey Turner and Mitchell Roland are everywhere linebackers. Those guys bring a lot of tenacity to defensive play,” Bonjokian said. District play changes for the Devils this year with Tampa Catholic no longer a worry. The new District 6-4Alists Sarasota Booker, Clewiston, Dunbar, Gateway Charter, LaBelle and Lake Placid, along with Avon Park, as its’members for the 2011 season. “We should be competitive in the district thus year,” Bonjokian said. “We can play with anyone out there. I am j ust focusing on execution right now.” With days left before the action gets underway, the Devils get things started with Friday’s 7 p.m. Kick-off Classic at Tenoroc.

Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID — The guest speaker at the Aug. 18 meeting of the Lake Placid Noon Rotary was John Varaday, director of the Highlands County Miracle league. Also attending were Danny Bass, Miracle League’s Goodwill Ambassador; Sandra Bass, secretary and mother of Danny Bass; and Kim Mollenkoff, Danny’s caretaker. Varaday told the Rotary membership that the Miracle League is in its fifth year in Highlands County. He went on to say that there is no fee for the participants to play or for uniforms, trophies and pictures.Participants are teamed up with “Buddies” or “Angels in the Outfield.”They arematched together with common hobbies and or persons that are compatible. The main focus has been on baseball and Highlands County has one of the only rubberized baseball fields (for a small population)in Lake Placid to hold their games on “a level playing field.” The Miracle League not only has baseball, but also goes on fishing trips, hay rides, Easter egg hunts and more. The baseball season starts on Sept. 24 and goes for eight weeks, with four youth teams and two adult teams. Ages range from 3 to 64. Participants are taught not only baseball, but self esteem. Sponsors are needed to keep this continuing great program. You can help by contacting the league at ml4hc.comDanny shared his feelings through a computer-like panel on his wheelchair and said he is a five-year baseball player and loves the experience andto meet old and new friends. Acheck for $1,000 was presented to the Miracle League by President-Elect Chris Boylan. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, August 24, 2011Page 9B LAMPE & KEIFFER; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 08/24/11; 0 0 0 1 1 2 9 9 LAKE PLACID — Surprise! Surprise! Was Peggy Sue Teague surprised when she was wheeled into the Commons and saw 20 of her friends from Tropical Harbor waiting for her? Peggy Sue is in the Lake Placid Health Care Center. Yes, it was her 60th birthday and she was coming from her rehab session. Abirthday cake with the singing of Happy Birthday was the cheerful scene Aug. 18. Aug. 14 was the Military Soup and Sandwich meal and it was free. The committee wanted to show their appreciation to everyone for supporting them during the year. There were 65 people present. There always is a 50/50 and this time the Military Soup and Sandwich Committee did turn their money over to Manna for school supplies for Lake Placid children in need. The two lucky winners were Ron Wilds and Goldie Stevens. Rose and Jim Witten made our coffee and treated us to fancy doughnuts this morning. David Bailie was our emcee and introduced our manager, George Susco. He told us what to expect before the end of the month. The rest of the new mail boxes would be installed; the ceiling fans would be installed in the clubhouse; a new tile floor would be replacing the old one in the clubhouse. George asked the people to please take all their own water accessories home when they leave the pool area. The Sunshine Lady told us that Barbara Meyer’s sister, Betty Carroll, had passed away, which we were sorry to hear. Asympathy card was there for us to sign. We were happy to see that Evelyn Guiney had come back from her trip to Ohio. Luetta Kiger’s son, Terry and his wife Shere, were here from Jacksonville to help Luetta celebrate her birthday over the weekend. Jean Chittenden reminded us that her granddaughter, Brooke Grassman, will be competing this coming Thursday and Friday in the Rock star WWAWakeboard World Championship in Indianapolis. We all will be wishing her success. The ladies coffee Tuesday morning, Aug. 16, was made by Bonnie Allen; Marilyn Cromer led the meeting. We had a guest this morning and her name was Kay Weber. We sang Happy Anniversary to Fran and Lloyd Buero. We had get-well sheets to sign for Grace Cooper and Louise Howard. Our sympathy is with Lonnie Lipowski in the passing away of Beverly Lipowski. Our monthly carry-in dinner will be Aug. 25. If you haven’t already donated to our drive for school supplies for needy children in Lake Placid, please bring it along to the dinner. There have been no monthly committees this summer. At present, there will be no dinners in the clubhouse during the month of September unless people come forward and volunteer. Brenda Knoche was the host for the August Ladies Lunch Out, which was held at the Olive Garden on Aug. 16. Walking into the Olive Garden, I love the decorum. Having eaten there before you know that the service and the food will be very good. There were 24 ladies present and Brenda had table favors for each. On the evening of Sept. 14 at 7 p.m., Rick Knoche will give a travelogue in the clubhouse. Included will be sights from western state parks. After the show, goodies and coffee will be served. The evening is free but if you care to give a donation, it will go to Nu-Hope. In this life, we cannot go backwards, only forwards.

Associated PressPROVIDENCE, R.I. — Richard Hatch, the winner of the first season of “Survivor,” is claiming he’s “destitute” as he seeks a court-appointed lawyer to help him appeal a ninemonth sentence for failing to settle his tax bill in his taxevasion case. Filings in U.S. District Court in Providence made public last week show Richard Hatch believes he should be given free legal representation to fight the prison sentence handed down in March. Hatch, 50, of Newport, had been returned to prison for violating terms of his release from prison for failing to pay taxes on his $1 million winnings from the CBS reality show. U.S. Magistrate Judge Lincoln D. Almond is recommending Hatch be denied free legal counsel. He says the appeal is not “taken in good faith.” Hatch is appealing to the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston. The federal court in Rhode Island, however, is expected to rule on whether Hatch is entitled to free legal representation. In his handwritten court filing, Hatch says he is “financially destitute” and rejects assertions that his appeal is not in good faith and his own issues frivolous. Hatch also claims the Internal Revenue Service has yet to inform him how much he owes on his winnings from 10 years ago. He also says he has new evidence indicating the taxes are due to the government o f Malaysia, where the first season was filmed, and not to the United States. Hatch spent more than three years in prison for not paying taxes on “Survivor” winnings. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, August 24, 2011Page 11B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; 8/19/11 p/u; 0 0 0 1 1 1 5 0 DIVERSIONS HACKSAWSBy PAULAGAMACHE ACROSS 1 Animal with a huge yawn 6 Garden support 10 ___ of roses 15 Swans Reflecting ElephantsŽ artist 19 Formula One driver Prost 20 Bandleader Puente 21 Religion founded in Iran 22 Dash 23 Reduces significantly 25 Your Movie SucksŽ writer 26 Billion: Prefix 27 A penny saved is ƒŽ 30 ___ me anythingŽ 32 Winery wood 33 Needle case 34 Like a black hole 35 Where theres a will, theres ƒŽ 42 Mama Cass 43 Partner of 74-Across 44 Spread out 45 E-mail alternative 48 Effrontery 49 Entertainment providers at a sports bar 52 Pops ___ Tuesday 53 Fill 54 Perfect service 55 Certain commando 56 Where theres smoke, theres ƒŽ 60 Founder of United We Stand America 62 Despicable 64 John who searched for the Northwest Passage 65 Buddhist teaching 66 People who live in glass houses ƒŽ 71 Rhododendron cousin 74 Partner of 43-Across 75 Chinese pathŽ 76 Stinks to high heaven 80 He who laughs last ƒŽ 84 Russian council 86 Land in a river 87 Some are queens 88 Part of a cul-desac address, maybe: Abbr. 89 Neighborhood east of SoHo 91 This ___ Youre Talking ToŽ (Trisha Yearwood song) 92 Riddle me, riddle me ___Ž 93 Public respect 96 Managed 97 2, 3, 4 or 6, for 12 99 If at first you dont succeed ƒŽ 102 Revenue line 105 It can make a 10 a 9 106 Alley ___ 107 Sante Fe-to-Denver dir. 108 Dont bite the hand ƒŽ 115 Legend of the Himalayas 116 Oldest von Trapp child in The Sound of MusicŽ 117 Protein building blocks 120 Reposed 121 Looped handles 122 Bone-dry 123 Sacred city of Lamaism 124 Mrs. Garrett on The Facts of LifeŽ 125 Places to live in the sticks? 126 Struck out 127 Stupid, in Sonora DOWN 1 Is sick with 2 Sick 3 Analgesic 4 Boulevard where Fox Studios and the Los Angeles Convention Center are located 5 Almost finished!Ž 6 Wasted 7 Former Yankee Martinez 8 Departing words? 9 Synthesizer designer Robert 10 Helped in a job 11 Middle Eastern salad 12 Area of Venice with a famous bridge 13 It has banks in Switzerland 14 Director Martin 15 Step 16 Its out of this world 17 Port on the Gulf of Guinea 18 Silly 24 Western terminus of I-90 28 ___ Majesty 29 Contraction with two apostrophes 30 Relationship disparity, perhaps 31 Console 36 Naught 37 Rapscallion 38 New newt 39 Part of T.A.E. 40 Comet part 41 Thats good enoughŽ 45 C-worthy 46 Scintilla 47 TV warrior for good 50 Its north of Baja, informally 51 Prime cut 53 A star may represent it 55 ___ blue 57 College cheer 58 Bog buildup 59 Star TrekŽ role 61 Cooking pots 63 Baylors city 67 Applied some powder to 68 Wasted 69 Title girl in a 1964 Chuck Berry hit 70 Toe woe 71 Come from ___ 72 Fanboys reading 73 Stud money 77 Javanese or Malay 78 Ban ___ (Kofi Annans successor) 79 Laurence who wrote Tristram ShandyŽ 81 Good grief!Ž 82 Surly manner 83 Material for a suit? 85 Party of the underworld 90 ___-di-dah 91 Suffix with robot 93 Hebrew letter after koph 94 Fights with 95 Permits 98 It might be on the road 99 One behind the lens 100 Farm mate 101 Didnt suffer in silence 102 Flair 103 Forward 104 Exempli gratia, e.g. 109 Economist Greenspan 110 It has a period of 2 111 No pressure 112 Its highest point is Wheeler Peak: Abbr. 113 Current carrier 114 Nymph spurned by Narcissus 118 August hrs. 119 ___ Tom 123456789101112131415161718 19202122 23242526 272829 3031323334 35363738394041 424344454647 484950515253 545556575859 606162636465 6667686970 717273747576777879 80818283848586 8788899091 92939495969798 99100101 102103104105106107 108109110111112113114 115116117118119 120121122123 124125126127 Solution on page 5B I have been brainstorming on how to help you enjoy using your calendar. I have put together a list of 11 tips to make your calendar work for you. 1.Color code your calendar. Use a high lighter for each member of your family,a dot or some color to help you recognize who has something when you look across the room at your calendar. 2.Use blank address labels to cover up mistakes or changes in your calendar. 3.Don’t procrastinate about putting appointment on your calendar. Do it now. You’re your calendar working for you. This way you don’t have to try to remember everything. 4.Look ahead so that you can plan for special events or doctor’s appointments. Do you need to fast, how about that suit that needs cleaned or a new dress for the wedding? 5.Check the family calendar morning, afternoon and evening. This habit is the Shiny Sink of your brain. 6.Put your calendar in a place that is in front of the family. After all out of sight is out of mind for us. 7.Allow your family to help you use the calendar. This is teaching them the calendar habit. Using a calendar as a tool is giving your children wings. 8.Each week have a family meeting to synchronize your schedules and put them on the family calendar. This is about communicating with each other and having all the information in one place. 9.When you walk in your door; THINK. Do we have something to post on the calendar? Put up a note to remind you. Having that PTAor church bulletin in your purse, the sports schedule in the backpack or that invitation in back of the calendar is not going t o get it posted to your family calendar. This habit will keep things from slipping up on you. Don’t wait to do it later. Later will be that frantic phone call. 10.Make it your family calendar fun. Use sticker, stars and smiley faces to decorate as well as celebrate accomplishments. 11.Use your calendar to chart your family’s milestones. Your calendar will become your family history. Yes you can save your calendars. They will help you to scrapbook. These 11 tips will help you to use your calendar instead of just buying it and allowing yet another calendar to become clutter in your home.

Become a calendar aficionado FLY Lady Leanne Ely DearAbby: Many years ago an advice columnist (your mother?) posed the question to her readers, “If you had it to do over again, would you still have children?” I’m wondering when the information was collected, and what the results of that inquiry were, and if you asked the same question today, what the majority of your readers would answer. — Ready2BDone in Phoenix DearReady2BDone: The columnist was Ann Landers (my mother’s twin sister) and while I remember the poll, I don’t recall the date. I do remember that the responses arrived on postcards because it predated the establishment of the Internet. The results were considered shocking at the time because the majority of responders said they would NOThave children if they had it to do over again. I’m printing your question because it will be interesting to see if feelings have changed over the intervening years. DearAbby: My daughter, “Morgan,” is an intelligent, hardworking overachiever. She graduated from an Ivy League college with two degrees and academic honors. Days after graduation she was hired by a Fortune 500 company and has been promoted three times in the past four years. Our daughter is a beautiful 28-year-old woman with a vivacious personality. Our problem is the boyfriends she chooses. She’s drawn to uneducated, jobless or parttime-employed men who talk a good game but never do anything. Morgan’s latest boyfriend moved in with her and she is supporting him. Her mom, sister and I have tried talking to her many times about this and her future. She seems oblivious to common sense and becomes defensive and agitated. We want the best for our daughter. We realize she’s old enough and smart enough to make her own decisions, but we’re finding it difficult to support her choices. We don’t want to alienate her. What should we do? — Paternal Voice of Reason Dear“Pat”: Back off. All of you. These men may not be what you want for Morgan, but they obviously are filling some need she has. In time her common sense may assert itself, but even if it doesn’t, your daughter’s choice of a mate is hers, not yours, to make. These may be passing fancies, but sometimes opposites attract very successfully. DearAbby: My widowed 82-year-old mother will return home soon after a stay in an extended care facility. She’ll need unskilled 24/7 care for a month or so. I’m the only family member who doesn’t work, so my siblings expect me to take care of her. Mom suggested hiring someone to stay with her and everyone thought it was a good idea. However, when I said I’d do it and Mom could pay me, everyone was outraged! My siblings think that because I’m her daughter, I should do it for nothing. I say the deal would be between Mom and me and it’s none of their concern. What do you think? — Mind Your Own Business in Washington State DEAR M.Y.O.B.: I’m glad you asked. If you need the money, make the deal. If you don’t need the money, then give your mother the help she needs out of love, respect and gratitude for the care she gave you when you needed it.

New reader poll may show that times have changed Dear Abby By FRAZIERMOORE Associated PressNEWYORK — David Letterman was back at “Late Show” on Monday after a two-week vacation, his first day at work since a threat against his life was posted on a jihadist website. CBS has declined to comment on any special security measures being taken at Letterman’s midtown Manhattan theater for the taping. Last week, a frequent contributor to a j ihadist website posted a threat to Letterman. He urged Muslim followers to “cut the tongue” of the late-night host because of a joke and gesture the comic had made about al-Qaida leaders on his CBS show. The website is a popular Internet destination for radical Muslims. One joke among several about alQaida that may have helped inspire the threat was part of Letterman’s monologue on his June 8 show. This was just days after the death of al-Qaida leader Ilyas Kashmiri, who was killed by a U.S. drone strike in Pakistan. Though Kashmiri was rumored to be a long-shot choice to succeed Osama bin Laden, he wouldn’t have worked out even had he lived, Letterman cracked, pointing to Kashmiri’s “rocky start”: “He botched up the story of Paul Revere.” The real butt of that joke: Sarah Palin, potential 2012 GOPpresidential candidate, who in early June on her “One Nation” bus tour claimed that Paul Revere’s famous ride was intended to warn British soldiers as well as his fellow colonists.
