Board discusses


elected vs. hired


superintendent

More meetings on issue planned

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING More than anything else. the
members of the School Board of Highlands
County were disappointed in the turnout to
Tuesday's public meeting discussing the
future of the Superintendent position.
The small board room in the school's dis-
trict office was hardly filled to capacity. but
those present were not hesitant to voice their
opinions.
Diane Juve, of the Highlands Advnnced
- Academics Parent Network, spoke out about
the positive strides she has seen the,district
make in recent years.
"Things are working so well for us in the
county, what is broken?" she asked. "We ha\ e
a $1.2 million,technology grant, we hate
brought in an advanced academic program.
From our viewpoint, from this change our
parental influence will be decreased. Instead
of having the ability to go to the superintend-
ent and being able to throw him out, we will
need the majority of the school board's
approval."
The.guests presenting the pros and cons of
staying with an elected superintendent or
deciding to move to a system that appoints
one were Dr. Wayne Blanton, the Executive
Director of Florida School Board
Associations, and Bill Montford, Executive
Officer for the Florida Association of District
School Superintendents.
"What we have is a question of who should
the superintendent report to the board, who
can hire and fire the superintendent; or if he is
elected, he will report to the board but the
decision to hire and fire is made by the voters
every four years."
A benefit of moving to the appointed sys-
tem is the ability to search for the best possi-

SEBRING According to
the American Academy of
Pediatrics, for the last seven
years premature birth is the No. 1
killer of newborns in the United
States.
November has been designated
Prematurity Awareness Month, in
order to draw attention to what
the academy calls the "increas-
ingly common, costly and serious


public health problem."
It reports that between 1981
and 2003, the most recent year
available, the rate of premature
deaths rose from 9.4 percent to
12.3 percent, an increase of
almost 31 percent.
The academy says that every
year nearly 500,000 infants are
born prematurely. That's roughly
the population of Cleveland.
The March of Dimes reported
that one in eight babies is born


more than three weeks before its
due date. "In all, the pre-term
birth rate has climbed 18 percent
since 1990," it said.
The, March of Dimes adds that
in 2004, 28,000 premature
infants did not survive.
In addition, many babies born
before their full term have lasting
disabilities, including cerebral
palsy, mental retardation and

Commission

talks about

lake levels

Another Istokpoga
deviation sought
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.comi
SEBRING County com-
missioners discussed low
lake levels and potentially
lower taxes during Tuesday's
meeting.
South Florida Water
Management District is seek-
ing another deviation to the
amount of water end-users
carn draw from Lake
Istokpoga, similar to a -
request the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers approved in
May.
Though the May deviation
allowed the lake to drop to
36% feet, summer rains pre-
cluded the need to deviate.
Those rains proved more ben-
eficial to the south and east of
Highlands County, and
Istokpoga didn't rise to the
occasion.
For the proposed deviation,
SFWMD is asking the lake be
allowed to reach a level of
35X feet, 14 feet lower than
the standard schedule, that
would last through next sum-
mer.
"We have no idea what the
weather is going to do," said
David Douglass, a member of
S.O.S. Florida Lakes and bass
fishing guide. "How low does
the lake have to get to cease
deviation requests?"
Douglass, who predicted
no end in sight to the
drought-induced low lake
levels, and other S.O.S. and
Friends of Istokpoga mem-
bers opposed the deviation
request.
They questioned the
Seminole Tribe's treaty enti-
tlement to Istokpoga's water
and expressed concern about
hydrilla and the general eco-
nomic impact to lake-based
businesses.
"Folks, it's a heck of a lot
more complicated than that,"
said Ray Royce, Lake Placid
resident and chairman of the
Heartland Agriculture
Coalition.
Royce pointed out that
Istokpoga was part of a larger
system serving various peo-
ple locally and downstream.
Highlands County residents
should be subject to the same
sacrifices as the other users,

In this exercise on extinguishing automobile fires at the Great Florida Fire School, a
Sebring firefighter experiences the heat, the smoke, the shattering of glass, and other
unique hazards that occur when a car goes up in flames. As soon as the car was fully
engulfed by fire, the firefighter put it out.

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County Voters League is clos-
ing out another successful
year, Attenapince and input
have, beeni,.y,tal in sending
" feedback- -and' information, to
the speakers.
This is a crucial time in the
history of Highlands County.
The rapid growth, the direc-
tion of our County, and espe-
cially in the hiring of a coun-
ty administrator are vital
issues which need to be
addressed.
The following is a list of
questions, issues and con-
cerns the Voters League's
board would like to address at
the next meeting with input
from participants:
2008 is an election year
and it seems there is much


voter apathy with the two
large parties; do you favor
pursuing more information on
independent candidates?
;,,- With-, only 17 percent
voter turffout in' the' redeiit
"'"Aonh Pil' election,, d'o 'oi"
feel it is time to pursue a
county government, which
would eliminate the need for
city officials?
With the growth of the
county and the many issues
we are facing, does the coun-
ty need full-time commis-
sioners to handle the day-to-
day operations and what
would the qualifications be
for a full-time commissioner?
Do you feel the sheriff's
department is addressing the
illegal immigration problem
in the county?

HCSO says no

obvious signs

of foul play
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssiun.com
VENUS A 15-month-
old infant was found in a
creek near Price Road Sunday
evening.
The Highlands County
Sheriff's Office received the
call at 6 p.m.
The family was outside
when the toddler disappeared.
"One group thought anoth-
er group was watching the
child and the child wandered
off," said Lt. John Chess of
the HCSO.
The infant was thought to
be submerged in the creek for
15 minutes before she was
discovered, said HCSO Lt.
Keith Starling.
"There were people on the
scene doing CPR; the
deputies arrived and took


over until EMS arrived," he
said.
The child was transported
to Florida Hospital Lake
Placid, then airlifted to
Tampa General Hospital in
critical condition, Lt. John
Chess said.
The infant died between 2
and 2:30 a.m. Monday at
Tampa General Hospital.
The case has been forward-
ed to investigations. Starling
could not comment if there
were pending charges in the
case or not.
"Right now we are working
this thing as an accident,"
Chess said. "There is no obvi-
ous sign of foul-play, nothing
to indicate this is a criminal
activity at this point but we
have to investigate it because
it is a death."
The investigation will not
likely close until a toxicology
report is finished by the
Hillsborough district Medical
Examiner, which Chess said
could take two months or
more.

When preparing your holiday turkey,
it's important to follow these safety
tips for thawing and cooking:

Thaw a frozen whole turkey in the refrigerator
for 1-6 days or in cold water 2-12 hours,
depending on its size. (Plan on 30 minutes per
pound and change water every 30 minutes.)

To avoid bacteria growth, loosely stuff your
turkey just before placing it in the oven. (Or if
you have frozen stuffed turkey, place it directly
in the oven without thawing.)

Roast your turkey breast-side up on a rack in a
shallow roasting pan, insert a meat thermometer
in the thigh, cover loosely with aluminum foil,
and bake at 3250F until it reaches an internal
temperature of 165F.

Lonnie Curl, former Sebring


police chief, dies at the age of 87


By MATT MURPHY
,natt.murphy@newssun.comn
SEBRING Lonnie Curl, who
served as chief of the Sebring
Police Department from 1958
until 1972, died Nov. 12, 2007 at
his home in Sebring. He
was 87 years old.
Curl was born in Vernon
in 1920, and moved to
Sebring when he was 5Y -
years old. He displayed
significant athletic skills
early in life, and played
basketball, football and
baseball during high
school. He went to the ,
University of Florida for
part of a year on a football
scholarship until leaving
to serve his country in the C
Army.
Curl served during
World War II, and he was in Normandy three
days after the D-Day invasion in 1944. He
suffered wounds in the spine and shoulder
during 180 days of fighting with the German
army, including a splinter that he carried in
his hand from then on.
After returning from the war, he worked
briefly in Birmingham, Ala., before moving
back to Sebring in 1946. During that time he
worked at a service station and also played
baseball for the Sebring Firemen.
His career as a policeman began unex-
pectedly in 1947, as he was walking down
Ridgewood Drive. Payne Sebring asked him


if he could help the police chief for just a
few days, which turned into a distinguished,
25-year career, the last 15 in the post of
police chief.
While on the force Curl was known for
his no-nonsense manner. In his last six
months as chief, the major
crime rate in Sebring
decreased by 83.7 percent;
the highest decline in the
state for cities of similar
size.
Curl was well-regarded
in the community, as evi-
Sdenced by his selection as
Most Valuable Man in

Getting a grip on a new business


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.coim
SEBRING Originally from the
Buffalo, N.Y., area, Shawn Linneborn was
seven years a stockbroker living in New
York City when a relative had a slip and
fall accident resulting in a broken hip
from which he never recovered.
It got Linneborn to thinking about how
to prevent that kind of mishap from occur-
ring to anyone else. He got on the Internet
and began to do research.
He came across an innovative product
produced in Canada a chemical solu-
tion that makes the silica in tile, concrete
or brick rise to the surface. That means, he
said, that one's foot acts as a squeegee,
pushing water out from under the foot and ,
into the' space between silica particles.
Under a microscope, the surface looks
like it has thousands of little dimples.
But then something unexpected hap-
pened. Linneborn suddenly found himself
at a crossroads and faced with a major life
decision: Stay with his brokerage compa-
ny, working for someone else, or leave his
comfort zone to become his own boss.
The idea of working for himself was
too tempting to pass up.
For over a year now he has dedicated
his time to convincing a skeptical market
about the usefulness of his product. He


carries treated tiles in his briefcase, and
spray bottles of water, whipping them out
and .demonstrating Gator Grip at every
opportunity.
He has donated product to treat the
YMCA's shower and changing rooms. He
hopes people using the rooms will notice
the new non-slip floor, and contact him
with orders for their own homes.
"The first thing I tell people to do is
throw away their bath mat," Linneborn
said, as he squirted a bottle of liquid onto
the Y's tile floor, after having wet it. The
water, he says, triggers the chemical reac-
tion. Dragging a finger along the surface
of.a treated tile does meet with noticeable
resistance.
His main difficulty is overcoming peo-
ple's skepticism. In the past, he said,
Home Depot and Lowe's had carried the
same product under a different name, but
withdrew it due to lack of sales.
Now the only way to buy what he calls
Gator Grip is through Linneborn,
although he has arrangements with Floors
Direct and Tiles by Fran to sell it.
He stands behind his product. "I see
myself all over Florida," he said, looking
into the future. "That means I have to sell,
and that means I have to believe in this."
Then he grins. "Know what?" he says,
"I'll do your tub if it doesn't work you

Renting the primary home should take a lot of consideration


The recent downturn in the
real estate market may result
in individuals owning multi-
ple homes for a prolonged
period of time. In most cases,
the individuals will have
mortgages on both properties.
This can create a significant
financial hardship on the
individuals if financial
resources are not available to
-n'o'--'oth mort, ,'.
With the prospect for buy-
ers looking distant at best,
more individuals are turning
their original residences into
rental properties to help with
the mortgage payments and
expenses. If you are one of
those individuals considering
renting out a home that you
have not been able to sell,
you should consider the fol-
lowing issues:
Unforeseen tax conse-
quences Rental income
will be taxable income to you
and must be reported on form
Schedule E, which is includ-
ed in your personal tax
return. If you rent a property
for $750 per month and have
a mortgage payment of $550
per month, you will report
$9,000 of income but only
the interest portion of the


$550 mortgage will be
deductible, not the entire
$6,600.
Deductibility of "carry-
ing costs" "Carrying
costs" are those costs
incurred by a tal\pa er once a
property is aitilable for rent
and tenants are actively being
sought. Therefore, once a
property is listed "for rent"
!' :ost, .r, now deductible.
Those costs include: lawn
maintenance, utilities,
repairs, cleaning, advertising,
taxes, home owners associa-
tion dues, and travel to/from
the property.
Depreciation expenses
- Taxpayers are eligible to
deduct depreciation expense
on the structure, appliances,
furnishings and home d6cor
(blinds/drapes/mirrors). Each
"type" of property has a dif-
ferent depreciable life so it is
important to breakout each
type of property separately.
The depreciable basis in
property is the lesser of its
cost or fair market value on
the date it is first used for
rental purposes. There is a
"catch," however, to depreci-
ation, and that catch is that .
depreciation must be recap-


tured if and when --
the property is sold
for more than its
depreciable basis.
Limitation on
deductibility of loss- ':.
es Losses on real
estate rental activi-
ties are limited to a
maximum of 1
$25,000 per year.
Additionally, indi- T1
viduals with adjust- Bill
ed gross income
between $100,000 and
$150,000 will be further lim-
ited in rental activity losses
that are deductible.
Individuals with AGIs in
excess of $100,000 will lose
$1 of the $25,000 maximum
loss allowance for every $2
their AGI exceeds $100,000.
So, for example, taxpayers
with an AGI of $130,000 will
only be able to deduct a max-
imum of $10,000 in losses
from real estate activities.
Loss of exclusion of
gain on sale of principal resi-
dence Internal Revenue
Code 121(b) provides for the
exclusion of gain realized on
the sale of a personal resi-
dence up to $500,000 for a
married couple. In order to


a
al
eB


meet the test for a
personal residence, a
taxpayer must have
lived in the property
two of the last five
years. Therefore, if a
taxpayer has lived in
a property for at
least two years, that
X taxpayer can rent a
property but must
Ik sell it by the third
enton anniversary date of
moving out to still
have the home qualify as a
personal residence. In practi-
cal terms it means that an
individual may rent the prop-
erty for two years and then
sell it the third year to take
advantage of the exclusion on


the sale of a principal resi-
dence.
Even if individuals chose
not to rent their original resi-
dences, certain expenses may
still be deductible to those
taxpayers. As long as the tax-
payer does not already have.a
"vacation home" that they are
deducting mortgage interest
on, the mortgage interest paid'
on the original property will
be deductible as an itemized
deduction on their personal
tax return. Additionally, any
real estate taxes paid,
whether paid directly or pro-
rated at closing, will be
deductible as an itemized
deduction on the taxpayer's
individual tax return. Other


expenses such as lawn main-
tenance, utilities, cleaning,
and repairs can be added to
the taxpayers original basis
in the property to reduce the
gain on the sale of the prop-
erty.
If you find yourself in a
situation where you are con-
sidering renting a property
that you previously lived in, I
recommend that you discuss
this with your tax advisor as
every tax situation is unique.

learning problems; chronic
lung disease, and vision and

neurological disabilities in
children are related to prema-
ture birth.
Laura Stokowski, with the
March of Dimes, writes that
in just 10 years, "the most
common gestational age of
singleton babies born in the
United States has dropped a
full week, from 40 to 39
weeks." She goes on to add,
that this is a disturbing evolu-
tion, because it leads to an
increase in the number of late
pre-term infants children
who are at risk for complica-
tions, including respiratory
distress, hypoglycemia,
hypothermia and jaundice.
While everyone admits the
causes are too varied to be
completely understood yet,
four main risk factors have
been determined.
Inflammation and infection
appears to be the leading
cause of pre-term births, at
about 40 percent of the time.
Maternal or fetal stress are

ble candidate, Blanton explained.
"Particular needs can be met," he said.
"(The board) has the ability to try and get
those types of people as your superin-
tendent."
Blanton used Volusia County as an
example.
"They were behind the times in their
technology, they wanted a superintendent
that was good in technology," he said,
"and within a few years they were ahead
of most of the districts in the state."
The statistics in the case can be used to
point in either direction.
Blanton said of the 15,000 districts in
the nation, only 200 still elect their
superintendent, including 43 out of the
total'67 couniie,, in Florida
- i. .,


born as early as 23


to 26 weeks can now be saved
using new technologies. But
those infants almost always
face living with major health
issues, including develop-
mental delays and seizures.
Parents of pre-term new-
borns are advised to learn as
much as they can about their
children's physical problems.
Seeking out good support can
provide long term assistance,


The state does have larger districts
than most of the country, with 25 of the
top 100 in student population.
"By national standards, you are a large
district," Blanton told the board,
"although you are a small district when
compared to Florida."
This could help draw in a better pool
of possible superintendents, because
there are superintendents that leave their
appointed positions for bigger districts.
"Around the country, that is common,"
Blanton said. "With a salary increase
consistent with increased (student)
enrollment."
When searching for applicants for a
superintendent position, Blanton said a
pool of 40 or more is not uncommon.
"Those top 10 applicants will be excel-
lent," he said.
Still, both Blanton and Montford
argued it was more about was best for,,


especially if that includes
people capable of listening.
Experts like Stokowski
strongly urge accepting help
from family and friends. They
also recommend keeping a
journal, including pictures, so
as time passes the parents can
see their child's progress, no
matter how slow or how
small.


Highlands County.
"You have to have the right person. We
have appointed and elected some right
people and some wrong people," Blanton
said. "I think the pool of competent indi-
viduals will be higher if the board can go
out and look nationwide."
Many board members agreed, unsure
of what the future holds for a growing
county.
"There is no doubt they county will
grow, we need to look at the best quali-
fied individual to run this community,"
Richard Norris said.
More than one board member com-
mented that currently there are good can-
didates running in each election for
Superintendent of Schools for the coun-
ty, but wondered how long that would
last. A public hearing will be set for some
time in January to further discuss the
matter.


TOADS
Continued from 1A
evening before bringing them
in for bed.
They have been turning up
around the house mostly at
night. Earp believes this is
due to the fact that the couple
has a bug light which may
also draw the frogs. Their
most recent find was a large
Bufo, located Sunday night
inside their carport.
"He was a big one, stood
about three and a half inches
high and maybe weighed a
pound or more," she said.
In all, the Earps have found
a total of 10 of the toads, four
large ones and six smaller
ones Earp believes are still
immature. The couple has
been systematically doing
away with them, which
proved to be a difficult task.
"My .husband Joe has to
shoot them with a gun," said
Earp after describing several
less successful ways of dis-
posing of the problem.
She said the Bufos also had
been found near the Avon
Park Correctional Institution.


LEVELS
Continued from 1A
he said.
"We need to work with you
and you need to work with
us," Commissioner Edgar
Stokes said to the SFWMD
and Corps of Engineer repre-
sentatives.
Working together is the
underlying theme of reducing
property taxes.
County Administrator Carl
Cool said Highlands stands to
lose almost $600 million in
taxable value if Florida voters
approve a constitutional
amendment offering ad val-
orem "relief' in January.
Highlands currently boasts
$7 billion in taxable value
properties.
Though the proposed
amendment would allow
counties to increase their tax


"My grandson works over
there and he said one of the
fellas there picked one up and
the next day he had a rash all
over his hand," she said.
Earp believes the toads
might be breeding in a nearby
pond.
"They lay their eggs in the
water and some folks a ways
down dug a big pond for
themselves so we wondered if
they might be breeding there
and drawn by the light over to
our place. We have no other
water around here," she said
As to their diet, Earp said
there was plenty for the Bufos
to eat in her neighborhood.
"They'll eat other frogs and
they love dog food. I put
scratch feed out for my chick-
ens so they may eat that too, I
don't know," she said. "We
don't have any little toad
frogs in the yard anymore, I
suspect they eat them."
Earp said the toads origi-
nally were brought to Florida
by sugar cane growers to kill
beetles. However, having no
natural predators they have
continued to spawn and
spread over increasing parts
of Florida.


rates, Cool said the loss in
taxable value translates into
4.2 million fewer "spendable"
based on the current millage
and budget.
But, according to Florida
Association of Counties fig-
ures, Cool said the bigger
crunch will come' five years
down the rdad, when the
county could face a 16.7 per-
cent revenue reduction.
"We're not trying to paint
the worst case. scenario," he
said, noting Highlands
County will take the second
biggest financial hit of
Florida's 67 counties.
Jared Lee, of the county
budget office, said portability
of Save Our Homes will have
a significant impact relative
to more affluent counties as
people move inland, bringing
with their exemptions with
them.

FBA builds house for Habitat for Humanity


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING They cara-
vanned in to the Habitat work
site as they got their first look
at the property where they
were going to build their first
home. Students from Avon
Park, Sebring and Lake Placid
are taking one Saturday a
month to build a Habitat
home. They are learning all
aspects of building a home
from the ground breaking to
putting on the roof.
Instructors from all three high
schools, plus the supervisors
from Habitat are instructing
the students.
Last year the shop classes
from all the schools built
sheds for all the new Habitat
homes, but this year they are
really going all out, building a
complete home. "It's super to
see a program grow, you just
see a tremendous value in
everyday .life." Ed Brown
said,
"If you never drive a nail or
saw a board for a living, but
you live in a house, it helps to
know how it works."
In Highlands County, there
are three instructors that care
about their students and their
communities Brown in
Avon Park, Joe Marquart in
Sebring and Leroy Kaylor in

Iosts High Tea
BY PAULINE AUYANG
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK It was a fabulously
wonderful evening as the National
Junior Honor Society High Tea and
Etiquette event got under way at the
Avon Park Middle School.
Sections of the media center were
transformed elegantly, and resembled an
up-scale restaurant. Tables were covered
with linen table cloths and decorated
with bouquets of roses and candles. As
the candles glowed, classical music
graced the background.
Elegantly attired members sipped tea,
and dined on petit-fours, miniature cook-
ies, brownies, lavash and an assortment
;of fruits. Colored marshmallows
designed in the shape of bouquets added
accent to the menu.
SSpecially made punch was served
from a three-tiered fountain, while deca-
dent chocolate was savored with dipped
marshmallows from the chocolate foun-
tain.
Among the faculty members in atten-
dance were Principal Dan Johnson, Vice
Principal Dr. Richard Rucker, math
teacher Crystal Vaughn, and NHJS spon-
sor Jennifer Dewitt.

It's time to put some bite

behind watering fines

According to Randy Smith, a spokesperson for the
South Florida Water Management District com-
monly referred to as "Swiftmud" the drought cur-
rently affecting Central Florida is likely to continue
well into the future. He said the drought is due to a
"huge deficit of rainfall" and has been under way for
two years.
Lake Okeechobee is five feet below normal, and
Lake Istokpoga is so stressed, almost a third of a foot
below a critical mark, that an order has been given to
stop taking water from it.
A check of the rainfall in Sebring and Avon Park in
October (Lake Placid wasn't recorded), shows both
cities had only one day where the rain provided more
than an inch of water, and then just barely. Sebring
had 17 days without rain all together, and Avon Park
14.

The fine is designed to get a person's attention: $100.
Captain Donald Simmons, who heads Avon Park's
code enforcement department, said the city had publi-
cized the problem extensively, so the decision was
made to get serious.
He added that the vast majority of homeowners
obey the restrictions, watering only once a week.
The two other municipalities and the county still
issue an initial warning. Then the first penalty is only
$50, $25 in the case of Sebring.
The fines do rise in amount with repeated offenses,
and Sebring does have a trigger point at which time
the scofflaw becomes criminal.
We feel, however, that Avon Park sets the best
example and hope other governments will follow.
This has not been an easy decision for us. Just how
irntrusive a government may be is a highly charged,
most important topic. Normally we are reluctant to
endorse more power to it. But this situation, cutting
across years as it does, and so necessary to our exis-
tence, with the future so closely predicted, we feel is
one exception to the let-us-alone rule. We have to
work together while setting a high bar for citizen


participation and that needs leadership from our
elected officials.

Where was the support for our
veterans on Sunday?
Editor:
Sunday was Veteran's Day, one day set
aside to honor our men and women who have
and are still serving our country in the armed
forces 365 days a year. The city of Sebring
honored our veterans with a parade. For
those of us who chose to attend, it was a
rewarding and moving experience to see the
joy, yes, joy, in the faces of those men and
women sitting proudly in festively decorated
cars and trucks being escorted down the
parade route by the Avon Park Junior ROTC
Color Guard.
They asked no thanks, but received
applause for their job well done. World War
II, the Korean Conflict, the Viet Nam War,
Desert Storm and the Iraq War were all repre-
sented. The Circle was full of well wishers,
waving and calling out to the honorees.
What wasn't there were the high school
bands, the Drum and Bugle
Corps, the Scouts or repre-
sentatives from the Armory in
"Avon Park and the vast num-
ber of citizens who enjoy the '
freedoms our veterans have I WOu
secured for us with their die h
blood and lives. ie

honor.

HCSO moving the garbage out
Editor:
I can not express the total shock and dis-
satisfaction of the now known vile and
garbage that has been exposed to be '"grow-
ing" in our hamlet of a neighborhood. There
are approximately 15 families that live west
of Dogwood Court on an intersecting, cul-de-
sac ending road. This road runs through the
middle of our hamlet, which is filled with
children ranging from newborn babies to
adolescent teenagers. The bulk of our chil-
dren can be seen riding bicycles, or visiting
other neighborhood children in adjoining
driveways, and playing in front yards.
Under the watchful supervision of caring
parents, never is a child out of eyesight from
one household to another. There is always a


constant state of family lifestyles being
shared and enjoyed by everyone. The peace
and contentment that is experienced by those
who live in our hamlet was shattered by the
"growing" vile and garbage that was
observed by Highlands County Sheriff Susan
Benton and deputies.
With no regard to the safety of our com-
munity, or to the enrichment of our children,
the vile and garbage took it upon themselves
to conduct activity that brought a raw barbar-
ic criminal element right to the forefront in
the face of our hamlet of a neighborhood.
The vile and garbage created the potential
element of known violence and systemic col-
lateral. damage that is associated with this
type of illicit drug culture activity.
Remember, this was a decision that was
made for selfish reasons of themselves. No
concern was demonstrated for the safety and
well-being of our families, our children, nor
our principles of community.
Thank You just doesn't seem to express the

National Farm City
Week is Nov. 16-22
Editor:
This Thanksgiving Day, as
we gather with family and
friends to count our blessings,
let's give thanks for the boun-


ty we enjoy and not just on this holiday, but
every day. The safe, plentiful food that is
available to us, and the products used to pro-
duce the clothing, housing, medicines, fuel
and other products we use on a daily basis,
didn't just appear in a store. They got their
thanks to a tremendous partnership of farm-
ers and ranchers, processors, brokers, truck-
ers, shippers, advertisers, wholesalers and
retailers.
In appreciation of this farm-city partner-
ship, the President of the United States annu-
ally proclaims the week leading up to and
including Thanksgiving Day as National
Farm-City Week.
Rural and urban residents are "Partners in
Progress" who produce the products, con-
sume the products, and make them readily
available through an efficient production and
marketing chain. Farmers and ranchers are
just the beginning of that chain. Farm work-

Glory days

This past Friday I played
basketball for a couple hours
in the afternoon. Just me and
some friends playing pick-up
ball. None of us are that
great. Most of us all think
we used to be better than we
are now. But for two hours
on a crisp fall day we banged
in the paint and shot long
threes hoping the wind
wouldn't knock them off tar-
get. And man it felt good!
I miss those days of noth-
ing being more important
that meeting up with friends
to play sports. For so many
years it seemed like the
absolute most important
thing in my life. Maybe this
is more of a boy thing but
looking back, I was flat out
addicted to sports.
Too often now I find
myself getting all
Springsteenish and talk about
the Glory Days. Which usu-
ally means high school. It
was then that you got to
wear the jerseys and stare at
the cheerleaders after you
made what you were sure
was the play of the decade.
But I think I was wrong.
High school wasn't the glory
days.
The glory days were when
we didn't keep records.
Everything was shirts and
skins. You were your own ref
and a "real" foul involved a
little blood. Games went
back to back. After every
game, popsicles and Kool-
Aid were served. The teams
changed every game depend-
ing on who won. Driveways
and front yards were the
facilities.
I didn't live far from
school so my house was
often ground zero for sports.
I went to a small private
school and many of my
friends and classmates lived
nearby. My class did a pretty
good job of maintaining a 6-
to-1 ratio of boys to girls.
This meant that we drove our
poor female teachers
absolutely nuts and many of
us never really figured out
how-to deal with women, but
we had great recesses! But
physical education and
recess were hardly enough
time to quench our thirst for
competition. So we took it
back to my house.
For a long time we had
afternoon tackle football
played with a tiny Nerf foot-
ball that gave us the opportu-
nity for highlight-reel-wor-
thy, one-handed catches. We
ripped shirts and tore pants
in our attempts to bring guys
down. The goal lines were
trees and a lamppost. You
had to be careful to avoid
sprinkler heads and fire ant.
There were no penalties, just

Growing up means a growing hunger to keep learning


It certainly is interesting.
The longer that my time on
earth is, the less that I feel
like I know. It is not neces-
sarily that I have lost the
information or the brain
capabilities over the duration
of the years, but I have
gained a new sense of under-
standing, for I think I am
finally out of the years where
you think that you know
everything.
Perhaps you remember
those years or know of a per-
son going through them as
we speak. It is the time
where the person is just like
a dictionary, able to recite
everything (or at least they
think that they are able to).
Yet, I have found that the


more that I
learn in life,
the more that I
realize how
little I actually
do know about
life. My
grandfather
was a man of
an insatiable
quest for
knowledge.
As a child, I
remember him


Murphy's
Law
Lindsey Murphy


as being bril-
liant, for he was able to
recite information about
things from around the
world.
Yet, he was constantly try-
ing to discover and learn new
things. This had surprised me


as a child, but
now I think
that I am
capable of
understand-
ing.
So, you
ask, what
brought about
this revela-
tion? Well,
here lately I
have been
studying a


new language.
I have had a desire to learn a
second language for some
time and now I am actually
applying myself to doing just
that.
However, I have come to
fully appreciate people who


are bilingual. It most certain-
ly is a challenge to learn a
new language and be capable
of speaking in it well.
As time flies by, I know
that I will be spending more
time discovering new things
and learning new informa-
tion.
I have this ever-occurring
feeling that as I find out new
knowledge the greater hunger
I will have to research ever
so much more. After all,
there is a world filled with
knowledge just waiting to be
discovered.

touchdowns and interceptions, and of
course popsicles and Kool-Aid.
Basketball pretty soon became our sport
of choice. We started out with a miniature
hoop bungeed to a tree, just high enough
to make it hard to dunk. You picked your
favorite NBA player and for an afternoon
you had his skills. I was often a shoeless
David Robinson dunking over my shorter
friends. Patrick Ewing, Hakeem, Grant
Hill, Penny, Shaq, Reggie Miller, Shawn
Kemp and Michael Jordan were regular
visitors to my court
Games were to 100 or until too many
people had to leave for supper or chores.
But that didn't mean playing was over.
One-on-one was still available. And one-
on-one meant that you got to be your own
play-by-play announcer.
We weren't restricted to mainstream
sports either. Kumquat wars flared up
quite frequently. Laser tag gave us the
chance to annoy the life out the neighbor-
hood as we sprinted around shooting each
other with our future guns...peeoooo,
peooooo,peoooo!
One of our best days came after a field
trip to Medieval Times. Our teacher, des-
perate to find something hyperactive boys
would pay attention to, decided to go the
route of knights in shining armor. So she
took us to a Medieval Tirnes dinner the-
ater featuring jousting, sword fights and
of course, a princess.
As soon as we got back we began fash-
ioning our own Medieval Times. We pil-
fered broom sticks and turned them into
lances. Trash can lids became shields.
Aluminum poles were hammered into
swords. We armored ourselves with bike
helmets and seldom-used coats and gloves
from cedar closets.
Then to my front yard we went. We
mounted our trusty Huffy steeds and cir-
cled round and round trying to steer and
hold a shield with one hand and wield a
lance with the other. Finally we knocked
ourselves off the bikes, which didn't take
much. Then it was time for the hand-to-
hand combat. Swords were drawn and we
fought to the death. Well actually until we
had theoretically cut our fingers, hands,
arms, feet, legs, abdomens and heads off.
Then we had some popsicles and Kool-
Aid. Now those were the good ole days.
No taxes, little-to-no girl drama, no gas
worries, no budgets. Responsibility was
just another adult word we tuned out.
Work was washing dishes, cleaning your
room, taking out the trash and making the
best dang broomstick lance you could!

the apparent sequence of

One must assume that the
use of the time-honored

abandoned as well as a well
planned blow to the solar

jumping or swarming on the

the tazer is a fine, jim dandy
way to bring someone down
while not even working up a

happened to good old fash-

tazer is not the wonder

Rather it is but the latest
application of cattle prod

for the use of this gadget was
demonstrated recently at the
University of Florida when
an unruly student, after being

cops, was repeatedly tazered
by one of them.
Let's not lose sight of the
fact that these were misde-

judgment and proportionality
is past due.

Friends & Neigbors


CRYSTAL LAKE CLUB
Pat Towle
AVON PARK Another
Veterans Day was celebrated
with a continental breakfast
with homemade cinnamon
rolls made by Fran Desillier.
For several years'now Joy
Faulkner has orchestrated our
Veterans Day program. The
one this year was dedicated to
the seven residents (veterans)
who have passed away since
last November. Les
Chaloupka, Rocky Roma, Bill
Yates, Ray Dienneger, Russ
Hatch, Lou Marschall and Jim
Wier.
Our Honor Guard was Bud
Swackhamer, Bill Parlow,
Roy Condon and Roy Ballard.
Many remembrances and
poems were read and one in
particular was a letter, read by
Jay Duncan, written by one of
our veterans home to his
folks. Don Duncan wrote
home about a Christmas day
when some of the men in
Korea were feeling sorry for
themselves and only having
candy that was sent by one of
the mothers when several of
the neighboring children
came into camp and they were
able to share their candy with
them. What a Christmas they
had to remember then! After
singing our nation's anthem
songs, we had Taps played by
John Schordorf..
Our bazaar will be on
Saturday, Dec. 1, from 8-11
a.m. Several items of hand-
crafted things and baked
goods, foods to go and home-
made cards, a large raffle
(which takes place at 11 a.m.)
and a doughnut bar will be
available.
Our entire staff had an
employee appreciation day.

One of the things we did was
play goofy golf. Each hole
had a different game on it.
One of the most popular was
the toilet we sat on on the No.
4 tee. On another, we were
blindfolded. Some we played
with different objects to putt
with. All in all it was different
and we had many, many
laughs. Lots of the residents
came out and cheered us on
even in the pouring down
rain. Some even gave us
cookies and goody bags and
drinks and lots of encourage-
ment. We had lunch in the
clubhouse before the game
and then returned there to get
our prizes. Jerry Ross from
our parent company in New
York came to help us have a
successful and entertaining
day. All enjoyed and we
would recommend this type
of thing for all other compa-
nies.
The Swiss steak dinner last

"Happy Birthday" and she
opened her gifts. The group
met their family and grand-
children' including a set of
twin boys. Pool, shuffleboard

Joyce Hoenicke.

AVON PARK Veterans
Day was the perfect day for
Avon Park American Legion
Post 69 to dedicate and cut
the ribbon for its fabulous
new Veterans Memorial
Garden.
After months of planning,
cleaning up, planting,
installing flag poles and a
beautiful garden fountain as
well as selling and installing
memorial bricks, the whole
project came together as a
wonderful memorial for those
loved and who gave so much
for the post and the country.
The dedication was the per-
fect ending for an already
wonderful Veterans Day pro-
gram that was seen by many
as the best all together pro-


gram ever at the Legion Hall.
Fred Hyden, adjutant, did a
superlative job of pulling
together a program that was
somber, patriotic and very
much to the point of the day,
which was to honor the veter-
ans!
The Auxiliary ladies did a
meticulous job of folding the
flag while Unit President
Nancy Galida read what each
bf the 13 folds mean. Bugler
Dave Watkin played Taps
after Charlie Barksdale read
and sang the story of Taps.
District 8 Vice Commander
Richard Francis officiated the
service.
Memory bricks are still
available in the Garden by
contacting the Post
Commander Charlie Rooney.

New product proven to

reduce exposure to MRSA


Special to the News-Sun
A new technology known
as ActivePure (RCI), devel-
oped by Tennessee-based
EcoQuest International, has
been proven in peer-
reviewed, published universi-
ty laboratory studies to
reduce Methicillin Resistant
Staphylococcus aureus on
inoculated surfaces.
Recent outbreaks of MRSA
in many school districts have
had school administrators and
parents concerned.
Based on NASA research,
ActivePure (RCI) has been
proven in laboratory testing at
Kansas State University to
reduce MRSA by more than
99 percent in 24 hours on sur-
face areas. This has enormous
implications for reducing
exposure to infection-causing
germs.
"ActivePure safely inacti-
vates germs in the environ-
ment 24 hours a day, without
sprays or wipes, the same way
it happens in nature," said
EcoQuest Founder, Mike
Jackson.
"And it's convenient. One


of our systems called the
"ecobox" is about the size of
a toaster," said Jackson. "You
can move it all around the
environment."
Testing also proved that the
units reduce other bacteria,
viruses, yeast, mold and fungi
on surfaces by up to 99 per-
cent. Products using
ActivePure (RCI) have been
installed in schools, day care
centers, nursing.homes and
restaurants. This technology
is -also available to con-
sumers.
"The use of A'ctiv.ePure can
reduce exposure by inactivat-
ing a majority of harmful bac-
teria, viruses and mold from
surfaces in the protected
area," said Dr. James
Marsden, Regents
Distinguished Professor at
Kansas State University and a
lead researcher involved with
the testing.
In Central Florida, Peter
Jordan Enterprises (202-
0286, 888-294-4321 or

distributor of EcoQuest
International's products.

A Lady Dragon's roar just too much for Red Devils


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

Not everyone

loving these Rays
Those seeking to make ours
a more gentle, placid society
surely have nice intentions, but
boy they have a way of mess-
ing things up.
I'm guessing that the Tampa
Bay baseball team did it's latest
marketing ploy at least partially
because too many people
thought have the word Devil as
part of the name was just too
scary, or evil in connotation.
Obviously, the name and
uniform change also helps with
merchandise sales, as the ,fans
will now have to re-supply
themselves with the. newest
look.
I can appreciate the money
aspect of the change, teams toy
with their-colors and logos all
the time for just that reason.
But as I wrote in a previous
column, isn't it kind of inherent
in naming a team to give it
something that has a strong,
fierce or scary image?
Were kids having nightmares
whenever they'd watch a Devil
Rays game?
They might have, but it
wouldn't likely have been
because of Devil being in the
name, but rather the team's
play.
S OK, so go in another direc-
tion, make it the Manta Rays,
the Stingrays.
But no, the decision makers
somehow decided to just drop
the Devil and remain the Rays.
The Rays? Not the Toms, the
Freds, or the Bobs?
What, was this Marie
Barone's idea?
And the funnier thing is,
there is nobody on the team's
Active roster named Ray.
The closest they've got is Al
Reyes.
Shouldn't they sign a bunch
of players by that name if they
want to truly say they are the
Rays?
Next thing you know, people
will say that Blue makes them
too sad, so Toronto will
become the Jays.
We'll be in trouble if the
S NAACP decides that the White
Sox is too racist and Native
American or Communist
groups decide the similarly
about the Red Sox.
> We'd still have two Sox', but
no way to now differentiate
them.
We could have the Boston
Nylons, but I think an old-time
music, group would have a
gripe.
The Chicago Hose would
sure get a certain Nevada
industry up in arms, or at least
up off their backs.
Trying to pacify those surg-
ing forward with political cor-
rectness sure are gumming up
the works of team nicknames..

AVON PARK The
Avon Park Lady Devils
were defeated by the Lake
Placid Lady Dragons soccer
team 6-0 Monday
night in Avon Park. Lake
Playing shorthand-
ed due to injuries, the
Lady Devils held
their own during the Avoi
first half. But lack of
depth caused some
issues as the game
wore on.
Freshman keeper for
Avon Park Brittany
Calhoun was on the save
several times, keeping the
Dragons from scoring until
late.
Making thirteen saves for
the evening, Calhoun even
stopped a close penalty


kick.
Foiling the Lady
Dragons' aggressive offense
seemed too much as the
night wore on, and fatigue
finally slowed, the Red


Placid


n Park


Devils' defense.
Teamwork and
perseverance by the
Dragons finally
ground the Red
machine down and
with less than five
minutes left in the
first half Lake


Placid's forward Erica
Resendiz slipped and ace by
the Devils.
Just two minutes later,
led by an assist from Rachel
Cameron, the snappy
Resendiz scored again
bringing the score to 2-0 at
the half.
The Lake Placid team


kept pressing the issue as
the second half started, and
had ample .opportunity to
shoot at the goal as the
Devils struggled the rest of
the night to push the ball
back onto Dragon territory.
Scoring right away from
a top shelf kick, Lady
Dragon Yuribia Terrones
slipped on by the Devils
defense bringing the score
to 3-0 Lake Placid.
That's when the Lady
Dragons really went to
work.
For the rest of the night
they did-their best to assault
Avon Park's goal line.
Ali Lopez scored off a
penalty kick, slamming it
into the net from the edge of
the goalie's box.

Sebring streaks out to Classic win


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Opening the Pre-
Season Classic with a win, the Blue
Streaks dominated the Sonrise
Christian Academy 50-36 Tuesday
night at home.
"This was our first game of the sea-
son, and we were sub-par for the
night," said Streaks head coach
Princeton Harris. "Overall, we did
most things right, but a few missed
assignments cold have made it
worse. We-still have some things we
need to work on."
One of the things the Streaks may
consider working on is their free
throw attempts.
Sebring ended up making just 9 of
their 17 attempts for the evening for
53%.
But Sebring was able to overcome
their maladies at the charity stripe as


Sebring

Sonrise Ch.

36


they set the pace for
the first half, leading
the whole way.
Both teams had
problems hitting the 3
pointer. The
Seminoles' Christian
Nazario hit more than
anyone else with four.


But the Streaks definitely con-
trolled the territory under the net,
using 6'7" Jewel Campbell to watch
underneath for most of the night.
Junior Chris Grubb led the scoring
for Sebring,.with 11 of his 17 points
coming before the half.
Grubb would take the shot anyway
he could get it, and was hitting almost
every attempt.
The dead-eyed Grubb showed his
versatility by making lay-ups, fade
away jumpers, and all of his free
throws.
"I am going to lean on starters T.J.
Williams and Sam (Robinson), but
'Overall, we did most
things right, but a few
missed assignments
could have made it
worse.

PRINCETON HARRIS
Blue Streak head coach


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
Sebring's Javier Medina goes a little up and under for two points in the
Blue Streaks 50-36 win over Sonrise Christian in the Pre-Season Classic.


Grubb really stepped up to the plate
tonight."
Following close on his heels, T.J.
Williams scored 10 for the night, and
Joe Young netted eight.
Robinson trailed the rest of the
pack with just six points for the
evening.
Which wasn't too bad considering
that Williams' and Robinson both
were fresh off their football season,


which ended in Friday night's win
over Port Charlotte.
Leading at the half, the score was
30-19 Sebring.
The second half was much of the
same, although the Seminoles' pesky
defense created more turnovers, giv-
ing them opportunities, but with
Sebring's height advantage Sonrise

Track dreams come true for STARS


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK For most
athletes the feeling of their
heart pounding as they cross
a finish line and their adrena-
line surging through their
bodies as they clutch onto
their award is a natural
occurrence.
For two very special ath-
letes Patty Wilfong of
Sebring and Eleazar
Santibonez of Okeechobee -
these feelings have never
been a reality until Saturday


morning as Special STARS
hosted a districtwide cycling
and track and field competi-
tion for adults at Ridge Area
Arc's track. Both athletes
have cerebral palsy and both
have never been given the
opportunity to compete from
their wheelchairs.
Wilfong, 30, spent most of
her childhood in Ohio watch-
ing her older sister come
home with awards for various
sports and activities. She
dreamed of some day win-


ning her own trophy, but the
numerous surgeries and ill-
nesses she experienced
through her life squashed any
hopes of her competing.
It wasn't until this past
year when she got involved
with Special STARS that she
realized she has a level play-
ing ground to compete on
with people just like her.
Wilfong started bowling in
July and recently took on the

STARS
Continued from 1D
challenge of competing in
both a track and field event.
While some are strong
enough to throw a shot put,
others throw a softball or ten-
nis ball. Although Wilfong
and Santibonez could not
physically throw the ball,
Special STARS offered a ten-
nis ball roll to allow them the
opportunity to push the ball
as far as they could down a
table top measuring board.
Wilfong, along with sever-
al other Highlands County
athletes, trained for three
weeks for the district compe-
tition that involved Hardee
and Okeechobee athletes with
physical and mental disabili-
ties.
It wasn't until Okeechobee
coach Annette Summerford
called Special STARS
Coordinator Cindy Marshall
and asked what events could
Santibonez, 38, participate in
that she realized the tennis
ball roll was available. At
that same moment a new race
was developed just so people
who could not physically
push their wheelchairs could
compete. It was the 50-meter
two-person wheelchair race.
Marshall issued the challenge
to Okeechobee and they
accepted.
It did not take Marshall
much effort to convince
Wilfong to be part of her
two-person team in the track
event since this has been a
lifetime dream of Wilfong.
"Being in that race meant
everything to me because I
love to compete and there's
been no race until now I
could be in," Wilfong said.
Wilfong defeated
Santibonez in the tennis ball
roll and took the first place
ribbon. Approximately 75
other athletes competed in
various cycling, track and
field events. There were run-
ning and walking events as
well as two-wheel and three-
wheel cyc ng, events .. ~
The Avon Park' Police
Department and West Sebring
Volunteer Fire Department
escorted the torch in during
the opening ceremonies.
Athletes Mary Jo Solloway,
of Okeechobee, Ricky
Marino of Avon Park, Lewis
Simpson of Wauchula and
Michael.Finn of Sebring,
each ran the torch around the
track with firefighter Jason

palsy, competed later in a two-person wheelchair race with
Summerford and they won the first place trophy for
Okeechobee. He got second in the tennis ball roll.

ROTC member Briana
Washington presented the

Avon Park Middle School
Band played the national
anthem. Cracker Trail 4-H
Club volunteered with the
events.
It was the last event of the
day that drew everyone's
attention the two-person
wheelchair race. Two teams
representing two different
counties lined up on the start-
ing line. Marshall stood
behind Wilfong's wheelchair
taunting the competition -
Summerford, who was push-
ing Santibonez. As the starter
Greta McDonald raised the
red flag in the air the teams
anxiously waited behind the
line. The flag dropped and
the race was on with both
teams going neck to neck at
the finish line.
"We had it all the way
until Patty's wheels started to
wobble causing her body to
be thrust around and for one
brief second I got concerned
about her safety. I paused,
then the competitive edge
took over and I kicked it in
high gear praying all the way
that nothing would go
wrong," Marshall said.
It was that brief second
that caused Marshall and
Wilfong to lose the race.
Their time was 12:72 seconds
while their competitor was
11:50.
"At first I felt bad that I
slowed down because I knew


how much Patty wanted to
win, but it wasn't until we
adjourned to the awards cere-
mony that I realized the
impact this race had on
everyone," Marshall said.
Awards were presented
after lunch and ribbons were
presented to everyone. The
two-person wheelchair racers
came forward for their rib-
bons but before they could
return to their spots in the
audience, Marshall presented
a second place trophy to
Wilfong and a larger first
place trophy to Santibonez
for having the courage to
represent their counties in
this race.
The room became silent as
everyone noticed tears rolling
down Wilfong's face.
Santibonez's enthusiasm as
he clutched onto his award
was overwhelming, which
caused his mother and his
coach to cry. As everyone
started to applaud it was dis-
covered this was the first
time either of them have ever
won a trophy.
"Winning the trophy was
so special because that's one
of the things I've wanted
most, but thought.I'd never
get. Dreams really do come,
true. Thanks Cindy."
Wilfong took this competi-
tion to another level by chal-
lenging Okeechobee next
year to a power wheelchair
obstacle course race so that
she could do it all on her
own. Amazingly, they accept-
ed the challenge and the race
is on.

just were not able to connect
consistently.
With this being Sebring's
first time on the floor, assign-
ments were miseed, mistakes
were made, and coach Harris
rotated his starters out for
most of the third period.
"I had to punish them a lit-
tle bit," he said, "We face
Lake Gibson next, and we
really need to be in the game
the whole time."
That game against Lake
Gibson will be Thursday
night at 7:30 p.m. to cap off

save on a penalty kick, but Lake Placid would convert six
other shot attempts in Monday night's win for the Lady
Dragons.


PLACID

Just a few minutes later,
Resendiz pulls the hat trick,
this time with a banana kick
from way out.
"It was a team effort," said
Resendiz. "We really were
communicating and passing
out there."
Then, with just a few min-
utes left in the game,
Terrones gets credit when she
bank shots one off an Avon
Park. player into the net to
bring the score to its final 6-0
Lake Placid.
"We played better than
ever, but we are just reaching
our potential," Lake Placid
coach Elizabeth Sottile said
after the match. "We have
learned that we can play, and
play well. Now we need to
stay with it and play up to our
potential."
