Hayes was this countrys 19th president when the Ingraham family homesteaded federal land near Arcadia around 1880. More than 130 years and some 25 presidents later, descendants of those pioneer settlers joined with friends and supporters on Monday for a public opening of the John Morgan Ingraham House, restored by the DeSoto County Historical Society as a museum and a showcase of Floridas early settlement period. The opening and grounds tour under a moderate noon sun was part relief, but mostly a celebration of the life of Ingraham, a DeSoto County seed merchant and gure of historical signicance. He died at age 97 in 1980. Delayed funding and weather slowed the full restoration of the cracker-style home for more than a decade. A former state lawmaker with a considerable legacy, Ingraham was remembered fondly for his story-telling and calm nature, usually perched aboard a porch rocker at the home on North Monroe Avenue. As a lawmaker, Ingraham was versed on many topics, although he little formal education, said Kathleen Ingraham Kuhns, granddaughter of John Morgan Ingraham. He quoted the Bible and classic authors and was sought after for advice on political issues, she said. He told me when he arrived in Tallahassee to start work, the other legislators thought he was a college man. Family members were pleased with meticulous detail and workmanship on the renovated wood home, which includes period furniture, an enclosed commode, and personal items left upon the owners death. This wonderful place today went from a house to an incredible museum, said Ingraham Kuhns. For me and my family, it is a very big deal, something the state of Florida will have for the years ahead. After the Ingraham house was donated to the Historical Society in 2002, efforts to restore were slow to develop. The rst big problem was condition: The Whidden-built house was timeworn, dating to around 1900. John Morgan Ingraham moved into the home in 1919. Friends said the home needed a facelift by 1980. Once funding sources developed, restoration moved forward. In 2004, Hurricane Charley reversed those for tunes, devastating Floridas southwest coast including parts of DeSoto County. The powerful storm knocked the aged house from its foundation, which further delayed progress due to the damage. Ultimately, state and Mosaic Company Foundation grants totaling $200,000 allowed for the project to be completed. State funds typically target historical sites like the Ingraham house that were never moved from the original tract. Sadly, there are many such cracker-style homes in ruins in Florida. Full grounds restoration includes the Ingraham Seed House, which houses the Howard and Velma Melton Historical Research Library where the Historical Society keeps its collection of artifacts Arcadian landmark opens with large turnout, good impressions By CRAIG GARRETTARCADIAN CORRESPONDENT FOR MORE INFO ...The John Morgan Ingraham Museum is at 300 N.

Robert Taylor of Alliance Design Group in Punta Gorda addressed the board on the integrity of the structures of the old fire station and whether rehabbing the 1963 building would be cheaper than constructing a new building. During its Jan. 14 meeting, the board had approved $4,900 for a comprehensive feasibility study by Alliance to provide specific costs on rehabbing the current building versus new construction. Taylor told the board that, based on an initial feasibility plan his firm had conducted two years prior, it was their recommendation to tear the old structure down and build a new one. You can rehab any building if you throw enough money at it, but the question is whether thats really cost feasible, and thats what this new study will provide, he said. Commissioner Buddy Mansfield said he was confident he already knew what the results of Taylors study would find, and told the board it was time to make a final decision. I hope this is the last time we have to make a decision on what to do on this issue, he said. We know the building envelope is basically Swiss cheese. Im tired of kicking this can down the road. Commissioner Jim Selph agreed, and wondered if spending the money for another plan is a waste of time. My gut is telling me its going to cost more to rehab this building. I say lets not spend the $4,900 and just plan on having to build it new, he said.

Arcadian | Page 2 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun / Thursday, January 30, 2014 The city administrator search committee met Tuesday to finalize the job summary and position description. With City Councils approval of the job summary at the most recent council meeting, the search committee is now poised to run ads in The Arcadian, the Charlotte Sun, the St. Petersburg newspaper (now the Tampa Bay Times), and the League of Cities publications. The description was approved unanimously 4-0, with Dick Fazzone being absent from the meeting. The ad will set a deadline of Feb. 28 for candidates to apply. Assuming council approves the package at its Feb. 4 meeting, ads can be run starting Thursday, leaving adequate time for response. Qualifying questions will then be submitted to the applicants. Committee member Mary Kay Burns suggested using the questions to draw up a grid, with which each member can rate each candidates responses. The committee tentatively set their next meeting for 4 p.m. on Feb. 11, when they can begin preparing suggested interview questions.City administrator search advancesSTAFF REPORT The DeSoto County School District is considering opening a new school, possibly a magnet or charter school. During Tuesdays School Board meeting, Superintendent Karyn Gary announced a proposal for the district to open and operate a special school focusing on STEAM: science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. We have gotten some positive feedback from the community, Gary said, so we are having a feasibility meeting. That doesnt mean we will do it, but we want to see whether it could work. It would have some of the feel of a private school, with a digital cur riculum designed to propel students into the rapidly developing world of technology. A public meeting to discuss the possibility of such a school will be held at 5:30 p.m. on March 6 at the Lake Suzy Academy (formerly Laurel Oaks Academy) in Lake Suzy. It will be an opportunity for parents to learn more about the proposed school. There will also be a session at 5:30 p.m. on March 4 in the School Board chambers, 530 La Solona Ave. Both meetings will examine the potential advantages of such a school. It would give us the ability to provide a choice to parents, Gary said. Some students now attending classes in Charlotte County are likely to come back to DeSoto if this option existed. She noted most of the districts schools are at or near capacity. She also said the former Lake Suzy Academy could probably be made suitable with minimal effort.A-Team shinesAndrew Hagen, coach of the DeSoto County High School A-Team (Academic Team), announced the team gave a stellar performance recently at Montverde.

County Coordinator Mandy Hines said the Turner Center is projected to bring in approximately $154,000 in revenue in 2014, noting 60 paid events have already been booked for the year. For comparison, in 2007 the facility lost nearly $48,000. Hines said the move toward booking numerous smaller events and the addition of dirt-based arena events during the summer were a significant boost to the facility. If you look at the events that took place with the dirt-based arena, the revenue was consistently in the five-figure range, she said. One issue that must be addressed is the replacement of 23 faulty sensors on the units cooling system. The failed sensors have been the cause of several complaints from visitors about the consistently cold temperatures in the facility. The malfunctioning sensors are also suspected of causing high energy bills. Hines noted most of the sensors had been fixed, but there are still four bad sensors located directly on the cooling units. Facilities Director Richard Metzger said hes been working with the company in charge of fixing the unit and hoped the sensors would be replaced soon. At this point its hard for us to determine exactly how much money is being saved by replacing those sensors, as its too early in the process, Hines said. In addition, we really wont have a concrete answer until the final four sensors, which are likely the ones causing the most problems, are replaced. Hines said other concerns include building and grounds maintenance, and event staffing and time management. Turner Center Director Jody Sullivan, for example, has to perform routine maintenance chores such as scrubbing all of the Centers toilets, in addition to her other responsibilities as director. This is an area where wed like to see assistance. Jody shouldnt have to be charged with doing that, Hines said.

Homan Arcadian Editor E-mail letters to shoffman@sun-herald.com | LETTER TO THE EDITOR | GRITS & PIECESEditor: We left our home in New York on Oct. 23 and had settled in for the winter in Perry, Georgia. Last year was our rst snowbird year and we found that South Carolina/Georgia were warm enough. But we soon heard it was going to dip down to 9 degrees in Perry, and decided right then and there that, if we wanted to avoid the freezing temperatures, we would have to continue south. We had paid up to Jan. 23 but we gured if we had spent all this money to go south, we at least wanted to be warm. We traveled slowly a couple of days and gured if we set the GPS to Arcadia, that would be a warm spot. We knew no one in Florida and had not made plans to end up in Arcadia. It was getting dark and we were beginning to get desperate, as we wanted to boondock. Upon entering the Arcadia area Jan. 7, we stopped at a couple of RV parks, but the ofces were closed and no one came around, so we kept going. we drove through town and just as we were about to turn around and look for a motel room, there was the Arcadia City Mobile Home and RV Park for ages 55plus. We pulled in about dark. Two of the resident men greeted us and called the manager for us and helped us get hooked up. The park manager made a special trip to greet us and register us right then. We plan to stay until June 7. After only a short time we knew we wanted to make Arcadia our winter home. This park has everything anyone could possibly need or want available for recreation and activities, and all at a very reasonable price. To the city of Arcadia, the friendly residents of the park, and the most accommodating manager, Carol Anderson, we want to thank you for your wonderful hospitality.Ed Jump and Margaret Rice Arcadia and Pine Valley, NY Happy birthday to one magnificent marsupialI had no idea that possums had such longevity, especially since Ive seen so many of them whove wound up as road kill along the highways and byways here in the South. I reckon ol Tater is an exception, since he turned 30 this month. Or hes at least better at dodging traffic than his marsupial brothers and sisters! Tater H. Bluff, or Tater, for short, came along in January of 1984 in a newspaper called The Desoto County Times, which was only three months old itself. I was writing odds and ends for it, and editor Tom Wason began talking to me about cartooning. Id doodled cartoons of family and friends for years, and done some artwork for The Arcadian a year or so earlier, so why not? We kicked around ideas and sketches, and at first the character was to be an armadillo in a cowboy hat, but smarter minds than mine decided it wasnt a critter that readers would warm up to. So back to the drawing board I went, and came up with a possum named Tater. I put a T-shirt on him with his name on it so people could get used to what he was to be called, and its been on him ever since. He looked more like a real possum in early drawings, with a very short neck, more of a pointed nose, and beady black eyes, but soon began to morph into something that was at least a little more cuddly, and hes kept the look since. The idea behind the Tater cartoons was to portray things going on in current events in a humorous (when possible) manner, using him as the | LETTER SUBMISSION POLICYLetters are welcome on virtually any subject, but we do have some rules.

Reaction was pretty good, so week after week, Tater showed up with his take on what was going on locally, and sometimes even nationally. Thats not to say that he pleased everybody. Now and then Id strike a nerve with someone whod call the paper and rant or come to the office and holler at the front desk staff, or cancel their subscription. I believe some wished they would see Tater on the road somewhere so they could run him over. Or maybe me. Hes dealt with every issue you can think of, from freezes and floods to heat waves and hurricanes. Hes fought taxes, inflation, and even lovebugs, and has promoted local history and heritage and even lamented over the passing of some well-loved locals and the loss of historical landmarks. Sometimes theres a struggle to come up with a subject when the news is slow, or its painstaking to think of what he wants to say, but he always has the best interest of our county and its people at heart. I often put real folks in the car toons, such as local office holders and other prominent folks. Some said they enjoyed seeing themselves as caricatures in various situations, and I was very glad of that. Tater lasted until 1993, when I retired him for a spell, in favor of a crotchety old character named Wanderin Willie. They even appeared in a cartoon together in October of that year. Willie loved going on about our history, and railed against what he thought was bad for our county, and was aged enough to remember knowing local legends like Bone Mizelle and Acrefoot Johnson personally. In fact, he was so old that hed outlived all his descendants! Willie finally wandered off, and along came a comic strip called Cracker Country, featuring a couple of down-home cousins named Cledus and Clovis, who had a dog named Elvis. I had fun drawing them, panel by panel, because I could build a short storyline, rather than just a onespot drawing. I did other various editorial cartoons now and then, with no central character, and they were fun and challenging as well. One even hung in the Florida State Capitol in Tallahassee that featured then-gover nor Lawton Chiles. I knew someone who worked there at the time, who snuck it onto a bulletin board, but its being on display was short-lived, once it was seen by a number of Chiles employees. I stopped cartooning for several years after that, but brought Tater back out of retirement a few years ago, and hes been up to his same old antics ever since, mostly commenting on whats happening. I guess I could call him a commentater. Anyhow, I just wanted to wish my furry little buddy a happy 30th birthday, and hope hell be around for a lot more years. Hes truly a part of me, after all these years, and at the risk of giving him a big head, Id even say hes an awesome possum. By the way, his name comes from what Arcadia was called as a small growing settlement Tater Hill Bluff. Please be kind and try to avoid his kinfolk out there on the road, and be especially on the lookout for the possum in the T-shirt who walks on his hind legs! Happy Birthday, Tater, my old friend; Ill see you on the drawing board soon ...Thanks for the warm Arcadian welcome TWES A/j, uIOD* T N AT Of-'j'':i o PEflCE RIDER F3RDGE SIM(ETR Dc C-6(0 CWTY rMEs...

The Sun / Thursday, January 30, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net Page 5 | Arcadian to bring even more revenue to the building. I think were doing a lot better than we were, but I think we should be charging people to park to pay for maintenance issues such as having to resurface the parking lot, Commissioner Buddy Mansfield said. Things that are public events like graduation or Fourth of July obviously would be free to attend, but I think its only fair to charge for parking for certain events. Im also surprised there isnt a cleaning staff out there: we need to get that fixed. Commissioner Jim Selph recommended prices be raised at the concession stand, and agreed with Mansfield about parking. I think we are leaving tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars off the table by not raising costs for food and bever ages and parking, he said. Several commissioners noted the need for a maintenance schedule at the building, saying it was imperative to have one in place to prevent the facility from quickly degrading. We need to have a maintenance schedule in place quickly, and Id like to see one presented to us before our next meeting, said Commissioner Gabriel Quave. He also directed Sullivan to be more vocal regarding issues that needed immediate attention, such as the cooling sensors, in the future. Im disappointed that someone didnt wrap their arms around this animal and stop it from the beginning, he said. In the future, Jody, I hope when issues like these arise you do everything you can to have your voice heard and make sure we are doing our best to help you. Commissioner Elton Langford echoed Quaves request for a maintenance schedule, and used Fire Station 1 as an example of the damage that can occur when routine maintenance is not done. That needs to be our focus in the future, he said. He added, however, that he was pleased with the progress the facility has made. This building is finally running like I hoped it would, and I look forward to more success in the future. At the conclusion of the workshop, David Cross said a business community board had been established to kickstart fundraising efforts to build a new rodeo on the Turner Center grounds. Cross said the Rodeo Committee has stalled in its efforts and the business community board is designed as a cross-generational effort to bring local business leaders together to raise the funds needed to construct the new rodeo grounds. Obviously we are going to be marketing the Turner Center as a part of this, as the two facilities would be used in conjunction during rodeo events, he said. When asked if the board had a tar get date for raising the needed funds and beginning construction of a new arena, Cross estimated three years. We are going to launch our mar keting campaign in conjunction with this years rodeo, and we hope to have enough raised in the next year, he said. As for construction, thats hard to pinpoint but I would guess potentially around 2017, but again thats just a guesstimate.LDR public forumThe BOCC also held a public forum workshop on changes to its land development regulations. County Attorney Donald Conn addressed a full meeting room, saying the county intends to revise the LDRs based on comments from the BOCC, county staff and the public. He noted the Tuesday workshop was just the beginning, and there will be at least one additional workshop as well as public hearings before any final decisions would take place. He also stressed there was no set time line when the process needed to be completed. We first want to compile as many comments and suggestions as we can; then we will compile them and eventually staff will make some suggestions to the board, Conn said. The publics input on this is paramount, because in the end these are your regulations. Conn said staff had already received some comments from the public and listed several topics as examples of issues to be considered, such as: phosphate, sludge and floodplain ordinances; culverts; removal of industrial light zoning as a special exception in commercial general; requirements for landscape buffers; regulation of commercial vehicles in residential districts; regulation of use and storage of recreational vehicles and campers in Agricultural-5 and Agricultural-10 districts; tent camping in all districts; regulation of new per mits for properties with code violations; outdoor entertainment permits; regulation of medical hardships; agricultural uses in various zoning districts; quasi-judicial hearings; parking vehicles on empty residential lots; and permits for out-of-town auto dealers. Commissioner Miller said this process is the publics chance to help change the regulations to promote growth in the county. People always ask why cant we attract business to COUNTYFROM PAGE 2DeSoto County, he said. Well tonight is the beginning of our opportunity to make it right. Several members of the public made suggestions for changes. Commissioners said any decisions to change the LDRs would be made in the best interest of the entire county. We dont write LDRs for specific people, we do it with everyone in mind, Mansfield said. We want a document everyone can be proud of and that treats everyone fairly. Quave echoed that sentiment: These topics are what makes this county live and thrive. We want to do whats right by all the citizens of this county. Langord said if there is a specific issue anyone feel needs to be addressed, its imperative to tell the board. We want to do whats best for our community, but this is not a per fect document that will please every one, he said. If theres something in the LDRs thats hindering you in some way, we need you to let us know. Conn said the board would allow 30 additional days for public comment. After the public comment period closes, we will compile all comments we have and schedule another workshop, likely in March or April, and hopefully we would be holding public hearings on this matter sometime in May.

Arcadian | Page 8 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun / Thursday, January 30, 2014 DeSoto resident Jesse Pence, 36, faces charges of unarmed robbery of a Bank of America in Bokeelia. A witness told Lee County deputies that a man approached a teller Thursday, saying, This is a hold-up: give me all your money in your top drawer, higher bills rst. He was holding a white trash bag at the time. He then directed the teller for her cash drawer. He placed the money in the trash bag, according to the report, and got into the drivers seat of a silver Chevy Tahoe. Witnesses gave detectives the vehicles tag number. Deputies went to the home of the person it was registered to in Fort Myers. In the driveway was a Winnebago RV. Detectives knocked on the door and Pence answered. He attempted to pull away, but deputies gained control and arrested him. Inside were clothes that matched the robber in a bank surveillance video. Witnesses at the bank also picked Pence out of a photo lineup. Pence, of the 11500 block of S.E. Wolf Ave. in DeSoto County, is listed as having an outstanding Lee County warrant for possession of prescription drugs without a prescription. Bond was set at $3,000.Woman killed in U.S. 17 wreck, family seeks her lost dogA two-vehicle wreck on U.S. Highway 17 of Hardee County left a Punta Gorda woman dead. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Carol Ann Maherg (also known as Carol Lewis), 28, was southbound on U.S. 17 near Fish Branch Road. A tractor-trailer driven by Jose A. Bermudez, 49, of Hialeah, was northbound on U.S. 17. For unknown reasons, Mahergs car crossed the center line and entered the northbound lane. Bermudez attemtped to avoid hitting her car, but her vehicle drove into his truck, separating the rear axles of the trailer. Maherg was killed. She was reportedly not wearing a seat belt. Bermudez was not injured. Friends on Facebook reported that her dog, a Vizsla named Roxie, escaped in the wreck. The dog has been spotted in the vicinity of the Arcadia Livestock Market. She is wearing tags and is microchipped; DeSoto Animal Services is also on the lookout for the dog. A photo is posted on The Arcadians Facebook page. The DeSoto County Sheriffs Office reported the following arrests: Sherry Ann Coker, 37, Flint, Texas. Charges: giving false information about ownership to pawn dealer with item under $300, petty theft between $100-$300, and grand theft auto. Police: DeSoto man robbed Bokeelia bank |POLICE BEATThe information for Police Beat is gathered from police, sheriffs office, Florida Highway Patrol, jail and fire records. Not every arrest leads to a conviction and guilt or innocence is determined by the court system. ARRESTS | 21 With all of the advertisements in the media for tax-preparers and software do-it-yourself tax programs, you are probably very aware that income tax day will soon be here. In recent years, the government has been encouraging us to le electronically, which a great many people choose to do. Additionally, many people turn the job over to a professional tax preparer. While either of these options is tempting, especially since it is becoming more and more difcult to nd hard (printed) copies of the necessary tax forms and instruction booklets, both of the ling methods have potential pitfalls. Both options can provide opportunities for unscrupulous individuals to take advantage of the unwary. When considering using a professional tax preparer, there are several things you can look for to protect yourself. Beginning last year, every preparer had to obtain a Preparer Tax Identication Number (PTIN).There is a space on the tax return for this number. Do not sign a return done by a tax preparer unless that number is lled in. Make sure you receive a copy of the completed return. Be suspicious of a preparer who guarantees larger than normal refunds, who chargers a per centage of the refund as the fee rather than a specied fee, one who requires that you split the refund as the fee or who encourages you to include false information on the return in order to increase the refund. As to ling on the Internet, there are thousands of phony websites, located all over the globe, many of which look like legitimate IRS sites but whose only intent is to get you to provide personal information about yourself and your nances. Any information, instructions or forms should be obtained only through the ofcial IRS website, www. irs.gov. Likewise, should you want to call the IRS, the only ofcial telephone number is 800-829-1040. Again, there are many similar numbers, but they belong to criminals who only want you to divulge sensitive information. The IRS reminds us that they will contact you by the regular Postal Service if there is any need to reach you for any reason. They will not call, email or text you to notify you of a refund, request information, tell of changes in the tax laws, remind you to cash a refund check Getting ready for a scam-free tax season in 2014 C.A.S.E.

They will play again tonight in the regional quarternal against the District 12 runner-up.Bulldogs win district championship The DeSoto County High School varsity boys basketball team faced a non-district but familiar rivalry in Avon Park for their last regular season home game of the year. They had lost to them earlier in the season and Coach Koonce was hoping the combination of senior night and the teams nal home game might bring different results. The boys have been playing hard and hopefully tonight will be our night, he said. Varsity Bulldogs fall on senior nightBy DAVE BREMERSPORTS WRITERIt started well for the Bulldogs, who snagged an early lead, but too many turnovers gave the Red Devils a 59-52 victory of 59-52. Avon Park came out pressing on defense to start the game. With the score tied at two, Koonce called an early timeout to adjust for the pressure. This helped DeSoto gain some easy shots and build a 13-6 lead midway through the period. It didnt last long, however, as the Red Devils scored the last 11 points in the quarter, scoring inside on second chance points, and led 19-13. The second quarter saw both teams making small runs, but Avon Park still led 30-22 at the half. Most of the Red Devils points came from penetration for easy shots. Koonce knew he had to tighten up the defense, especially on the perimeter.

Arcadian | Page 18 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun / Thursday, January 30, 2014 Three DeSoto County High School seniors were recognized before their last home game against Avon Park. Dequan Richardson, Chris Montgomery and Nycarion Williams all play vital roles as impact players for the varsity Bulldog basketball team, and each has a special place in coach Richard Koonces heart. Dequan and Nycarion were here when I started, he said. They are both hard working and give everything they have Seniors recognized before last home gameBy DAVE BREMERSPORTS WRITER Nycarion Williams stands with his mother Takesha Hoskins and family members Louis Anderson Jr., Harold Hoskins and Blanche Humphrey.

Dequan Richardson stands with his mother Deborah Richardson and grandpar ents Martha and Richard Bowers before the nal home game of the season. GAME | 23 Going into their home finale against Avon Park, boys junior varsity coach Darby Ellis mentioned how pleased he was with the progress of his team. They had won their last six games and were jelling as a team. They have bought into the system, and with a lot of good players we are able to sit kids down during the game to teach them, and give attention to the system, he said. Once the game began, the Bulldogs used an effective man-to-man pressure defense to slowly pull away from the Red Devils, winning 56-49. The Bulldogs applied fullcourt pressure and dropped into a half-court man defense with pressure on the ball, catching the Red Devils off guard. Avon Park frequently turned the ball over and a couple of three-point shots by Caleb Blackwood gave DeSoto a 16-9 lead at the end of one quarter. Avon Park settled down in the next quarter, using the same pressure defense on the Bulldogs tying the game at 18. Center Jeffery Hamm entered the game and quickly made two inside baskets to put the Bulldogs back up, and DeSoto led 26-25 at the half.Putting on the pressureThe Bulldogs started the JV boys win home finaleBy DAVE BREMERSPORTS WRITERWIN | 22 All public school families and employees rfntrb t TOTALLY FREE CHECKINGrbbr LOANS MORTGAGES r Bank with Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union!rffrfntb r rrnrrfnrn + = b 50463393 Family Service Center DIVISION OF CAREER AND ADULT EDUCATION 310 West Whidden Street Arcadia, FL 34266 Phone (863) 993-1333 desotoschools.com/fsc 50457496 F C A T R e m e d i a t i o n F C A T R e m e d i a t i o n FCAT Remediation T e s t i n g S t r a t e g i e s C l a s s T e s t i n g S t r a t e g i e s C l a s s Testing Strategies Class T u e s d a y & T h u r s d a y T u e s d a y & T h u r s d a y Tuesday & Thursday 4 : 0 0 p m 6 : 0 0 p m 4 : 0 0 p m 6 : 0 0 p m 4:00pm -6:00pm $ 4 5 0 0 $ 4 5 0 0 $45.00 C l a s s e s b e g i n w e e k o f F e b r u a r y 1 0 2 0 1 4 C lasses begin week of February 10, 2014* T h i s c o u r s e i s i n t e n d e d f o r i n d i v i d u a l s t h a t a r e n o t *This course is intended for individuals that are not c u r r e n t l y e n r o l l e d i n h i g h s c h o o l currently enrolled in high school.* P r e t e s t m u s t b e t a k e n p r i o r t o b e g i n n i n g c l a s s s o c a l l Pretest must be taken prior to beginning class so call t h e F a m i l y S e r v i c e C e n t e r t o s c h e d u l e a t i m e n o w the Family Service Center to schedule a time now!

Arcadian | Page 22 www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun / Thursday, January 30, 2014 DeSoto County High School The boys soccer team beat Sarasota Military Academy 1-0 in the 2A-11 district semifinal game and then shut out Cardinal Mooney 3-0 to become the District 2A-11 champions. The varsity girls soccer team finished their season with a 9-16 record after a 6-0 loss to Bishop Verot. The junior varsity boys basketball team beat Avon Park 58-49, but the varsity team lost.DeSoto County Middle School The girls basketball team lost to Avon Park 27-10, while the boys upset the Red Devils 48-38.Upcoming games The boys varsity basketball team plays their final regular season game at Port Charlotte tonight, with the JV game starting at 5:30 p.m. They will begin district play next week. The middle school basketball teams will play their final game of the season tonight at home against Lake Placid. The girls play at 5:30 p.m., followed by the boys. The spring sports have started as the tennis teams travel to Hardee Feb. 3. Softball Coach Billy Hines said, It took us five days of tryouts instead of the usual two days this year because we have so many girls that are equal in talent. They get to show their talent Feb. 4 as they travel to Port Charlotte. They will host Charlotte at 5 p.m. next Thursday.By STEVE KNAPPARCADIAN SPORTS DIRECTOR second half with a little more energy in their pressure defense and it paid off. Freshman Jordan Lawson came alive and had eight second-half points. The Red Devils seemed to be wearing down and found themselves down 44-33 to end the third quarter. After some quick fouls against the Bulldogs to start the fourth quarter, it looked as if Avon park might get back into the game at the free throw line, but they could not convert and the Bulldogs continued to play pressure defense to maintain their double-digit lead. A late flurry of baskets by Avon Park at the end of the game was not enough, with DeSoto coming away with 56-49 win. Theyre a good group of boys who are smart and catch on pretty quick, Ellis said after the game. Im not a fan of the zone defense, and some of our freshmen havent played a lot of man until this year, but theyre catching on.WINFROM PAGE 18 leading them into this position. Im sorry to all of you, I was under the impression this could have been done cheaper through a rehab, he said. A builder gave me a cost estimate of $400,000-$500,000, but ob viously something was missed along the way. Ill go along with whatever is the pleasure of this board. Several board members told Langford there was no need to apologize, and Commissioner Bob Miller said the board would never know the answer to the rehab question unless they authorize the study to be completed. We wont know until we do it, so we should move forward on this and get a straight answer once and for all. Commissioner Gabriel Quave said Taylors comments actually helped clarify the situation. What we received here today is knowledge, and now we know. Theres no reason to apologize for getting us to a point where we will have a clear answer one way or the other. The board asked Taylor to conduct a study at a discounted price that focused solely on the costs to rehab the old building, and to not investigate the costs of building new. We can figure out ourselves what it would cost to build new, said Langford. Taylor said he would have the study completed within a month. The board then unanimously agreed for Taylor to perform the cost feasibility study.Sheriffs complex sites approved for negotiationsCounty Purchasing Director Cindy Talamentez presented five possible sites suitable for the construction of a new sheriffs office complex and jail. The sites were reviewed by a sheriffs office committee, which ranked the properties from No. 5 to No. 1 based on criteria such as potential expansion and location. The top site chosen was a 40-acre plot at the corner of Fiveash Street and N.E. Turner Road, which would provide quick access to area schools, the Arcadia Police Department and DeSoto Memorial Hospital. It adjoins empty lots that could be used for future expansion if needed. The No. 2 site is also 40 acres on Fiveash, and is commonly known as the old FEMA park constructed following Hurricane Charley in 2004. Talamentez said staff wanted to begin negotiations on both sites, which will give the county a good idea of what purchasing the land will cost. Talamentez continued that if staff came to a purchase agreement, they would present it to the board for final approval. The presentation was met with a lukewarm response from Miller, who was concerned about how the county could afford to pay for a new complex. I dont want to tie up all of our funds for next 30 years on this, he said. Its all about the money, not the location. We have to be careful as it pertains to economic issues, such as the greening disease in our citrus that could potentially cripple economic growth in the near future. I just want to make sure were not putting the cart before the horse here; this is a very dangerous time to take this on. Langford, however, worried about the ramifications of not building a new complex. In my opinion were still in a scary situation if we do nothing, he said. So if we sit back and wait, the jail is just going to disintegrate further. We are making progress and need to continue moving forward. Its just like the fire station its an issue that isnt going away. I have a funny feeling this is going to bite us in the butt if we decide not to take action. Mansfield agreed with Langford, saying he welcomed any suggestions on a better solution. I will take any comments, but dont just give me a problem, give me a solution too, he said. I dont want someone coming into this county mandating we do it, instead of us getting the job done ourselves. After further discussion, Selph said since all staff was asking for was per mission to move into negotiations, it wouldnt hurt to move forward. This is only a motion to negotiate. We have to move this along, and this is a first step, he said. The board unanimously approved the motion.U.S. 17 utilities project moves forwardThe board unanimously approved a funding application for the extension of water and wastewater utilities as part of the Florida Department of Transportations Phase III expansion of U.S. 17 from County Road 760 in Nocatee to Heard Street in Arcadia. Utilities Department Director Eddie Miller said his department had received positive feedback from residents along the 17 corridor inter ested in hooking up to the countys utilities if given the opportunity. We sent out 180 survey letters, and of them we received 55 positive responses, and only four negative, so thats a great sign regarding potential revenue for this expansion, he said. He said his department would be sending out a second batch of surveys to further clarify residents willingness to hook up to both county water and wastewater. Commissioner Miller said, although at first he was concerned with the possibility there would be little to no development along the corridor once the project was completed, recent conversations with staff gave him more reasons for optimism. Im feeling better about this than I was, and since were only approving the submission of the funding application, Im comfortable voting in favor of this, he said. Quave said regardless of concerns of the costs to extend the utilities, the economic hit the county would absorb by not taking action would be substantial. If we dont put these pipes in the ground, it will be a huge economic loss for us, far greater than the dollar amounts were discussing today, he said. After further discussion, the board approved the motion. The board also unanimously approved a request by the Utilities Department to write off $1,300 in uncollectable funds from delinquent accounts, and approved revised reorganization charts for both county staff and the Public Safety Department.

After a short Bulldog run cut the lead to 11, Avon Park again took control and led 48-31 heading into the fourth. The Bulldogs climbed within 11 points again in the fourth, and then made things interesting after closing the game to within six with less than two minutes left. Missed scor ing opportunities and a Red Devil free throw kept the Bulldogs in check and the Red Devils scored a 59-52 victory. Koonce knew his team didnt play well, but remained optimistic. We werent ready to play tonight and thats my fault. We gave up the ball too much, giving them easy baskets, he said. The boys did play hard, and this should help us prepare for the districts in a couple of weeks. DeSoto is the third seed and will play Lemon Bay in the district seminal game. Sebring is the top seed and will play Hardee.SENIORFROM PAGE 17 PHOTO BY DAVE BREMERNycarion Williams goes up high to score against Avon Park. for me. Chris is a smart kid, and he learns quicker than most. Koonce says all his players are like family, but these three have done a good job accepting his style of coaching and respecting him and the process. I appreciate what they have done, he said.Fond memoriesRichardson reminisced on his favorite memory during his basketball career. I remember dunking the basketball in an eighth grade game, he said. That was a special feeling. It was a tting memory for Richardson to recall, as late in the game against Avon Park, he received a breakaway pass from a teammate and dunked the basketball with less than two minutes to play. Williams, a leading scorer for the team, said his greatest memory was having the opportunity to play varsity all four years for the Bulldogs. Playing my freshman year on varsity as a starter was special for me, he said. I also had a career-high 32 points during a game this year and that was kind of special. His mother also mentioned how much he has grown up as a player, keeping his composure on the court. During the game Williams and Coach Koonce were often conferencing on strategy and game play. Hes a go-to player and a good leader. Hes always ready to give everything to the game, Koonce said. Montgomery is a two-year varsity player who transferred from Orlando to DCHS. The coach from Orlando would get caught up in looks and such, so I came to Arcadia and I like playing for Coach Koonce. Hes more understanding and accepts you for who you are, he said. Montgomery wasnt sure about his greatest memory but after some thought he recalled scoring 24 points in a game. It was against Lake Placid though, and they were kind of easy, he recalled. Montgomery was mostly thankful for the love and support of his family during his basketball career. Family is everything and Im thankful for them, he said. Koonce is thankful for his seniors. All three had a good nal game against Avon Park, scoring often and playing hard. Theyre good kids who always play hard, he said. They will be missed.GAMEFROM PAGE 18 M i c h a e l D e r h o d g e O D Michael Derhodge O.D.

Hagen gave credit to Co-coach Carolyn Crews, Team Captain Sergio Villefuerte (senior), Juan Perez (junior), Mitchell Moore (junior), Blaine Wallace (sophomore) and Elizabeth Beard (freshman). Robert Turnipseed, Associate Director of Instructional Services, told the School Board about a new testing program the district is now implementing, called i-Ready. It is a math and reading testing system that uses engaging characters that children enjoy. It is an adaptive system, in that it determines where the students weak areas are and emphasizes those areas. It can be used by teachers in the classrooms, and students can use it at home, he said. It rewards students for completing workouts and they are eager to use it, while it gives principals and teachers valuable data on how well the students are performing, and are expected to do on the FCAT. It can tell how long a student spent on a question and whether they went over it too fast, said Turnipseed. The program has been praised in other states, and it is likely to replace other evaluative testing systems now in use. It can also be adapted as a useful tool for differential education, such as for ESE students. It gives the teacher more tools, said Turnipseed.

As a small boy, young Ingraham sat on the stoop of an Arcadia schoolhouse, crying because he was alone and afraid, the guest said. He was just bawling, Howard Kuhns said Ingraham had related. And a woman came to him, and kissed him on the forehead, told him to not be afraid, and to go inside the school. It was the teacher. That kiss meant everything to John. He remembered that kiss decades later.LANDMARKFROM PAGE 1 SP17509Want To Get ItsEasyJust SHOP Visit the following businesses and shop local for quality service and customer service.
