Towne Plaza

customers

deal with

stench
By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Visitors to the
Towne Square Plaza on
Lakeview Drive in Sebring
were treated to a new smell
last week, and it was not a
pleasant one.
The Towne Plaza used to
be a bustling center where
both Kmart and Winn-Dixie
had anchor stores.
Over the years, the plaza
has fallen into disrepair, and
the owners, Elizabethan
Development in Fort Myers,
had approached the city of
Sebring with a condo propos-
al.
The smell 'came from
recently closed Cast Off
Marine store, which sold sail
rigging, electronics, tackle
and of course, live bait.
Cast Off, previously at
1546 Lakeview Drive, had
recently closed due to the dip
in the ,local economy, but
when the electricity was
turned off last week, the live
bait, was left in the well for
several days without aerators
running.
After a few days in the
unseasonabl\ warm weather,
neighbors. began to think
something might be wrong.
"It smelled horrible,"
Colleen Colvier, a local shop-
per, said. "You could tell
something had died."
Although the smell never
really permeated into the
other stores, patrons of
Sebring Pediatrics had com-
plained that it was difficult to
stand the smell in order to
take their kids for treatment

The First Century


Highlands Bike

Fest brings

more than 250

cyclists to ride
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
LORIDA When Chris
Altimari pulled into the rest
stop at Blessings Avenue and
Grey Oak Lane, he had ridden
85 miles his longest bike
ride to date.
He still had 15 miles to go.
"It's always better to have
something left than nothing,"
Altimari, 50, said, as he
approached the Lorida pit
stop, the last of four before
pulling into Kenilworth Lodge
in Sebring. "We've got a ways
to go."
Cyclists mark their bicycle
"careers" with various mile-
stones. It could be that first
10-mile ride, an exhilarating
feat or switching over to clip-
less pedals like a "real" bicy-
clist. Then it progresses to
greater distances, and faster
ride averages.
Of course, the number 100
is used as a marker. If you live
that many years, you might
get an article written about
you or, better, a mention on'
TV by Al Roker.
Presidents are scrutinized
after their first 100 days.
In cycling, too, accomplish-
ing a century is a big deal. For
many their first century trial
run is a "metric century,"
about 62 miles.
It doesn't matter how many
miles a cyclists has on her
legs, riding 100 miles is a cov-
eted achievement.
"This will be very challeng-
ing for me," Altimari said

before Saturday's ride.
He and w ie Sharon
Altimari live in/Tampa, he
handles outside sales, ror
Sherx in-WiIlliami Paints.
They have a Lorida home and
rental property. He spends a
lot of time in Highlands
County fishing, he said, as a
release for all of his training.
He began cycling 2 V' years
ago to lose weight. He was
once a competitive runner,
sponsored by upstart shoe
company Avia for whom he
tested new products.
That was more than 20
years ago. He got burned out,
quit and walked, or ran, away


from it all.
At 5 feet, 11 inches tall he
now weighs 155 pounds.-He
had to lose 80M pourdito get
there.
Since returning to sport,
he's completed a half-
Ironman, an Olympic distance
triathlon and both Heartland
Triathlons. Previous bike rides
took him as-far as 80 miles.
With his Tampa bike club,
they average 27 mph over 50-
60 miles on the flats. That's
Patrick High fast.
Nonetheless, he didn't take
Saturday's 102 miles lightly.

International


Baccalaureate


Program


discussion set


for Monday

Another route to educating 'high
achieving' students in Highlands County

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING The ins and outs of the International
Baccalaureate (IB) Program, and whether or not it has
a place in Highlands County, will be discussed at
length in the first public meeting on the subject
Monday.
The IB program is currently in place in more than
50 high schools in Florida and 550 across the nation.
It is used to enhance the education of the nation's
brightest students by offering an advanced, accelerat-
ed program.
The meeting will take place at Hill-Gustat Middle
School from 6:30-7:30 p.m. and will feature the prin-
cipal from Bartow High School's IB program, Dr.
Edward Vetter, as the guest speaker.
Vetter was out of town during ,the week but an
interview was conducted via e-mail by the News-Sun.
He had mostly positive things to say about the pro-
gram and howit has affected the school since IB was
added to the school in 1995.
"I believe it is fair to say that with IB, there has
been an increase in internationalism: cultural diversi-
ty at (Barton High School) and academically, certain-
ly, an increase in the number of AP (advanced place-
ment) classes offered," he said. "I would also say that
student expectations for the. students has increased."
During the public meeting Vetter will give a gener-
al overview of the IB program, curriculum, student
expectations, expected costs, benefits, and the appli-
cation process although most time will be allotted
for questions, he said.
Diane Juve, instrumental in advancing "high
achieving" student education in the county by spear-
heading the Highlands Advanced Academics Rising
Together (HAART) program, is on the School Board
of Highlands County's steering committee.

Law Enforcement Facility two


years from opening in 2010


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING The Highlands County
Sheriff's Office Law Enforcement Facility at
George Boulevard is scheduled to open in
2010.
By 2011, it'll already be three years old,
explained Ian A. Reeves, vice president,
Architects Design Group,
Design Group, hired to build the $11 mil-
lion facility, specializes in law enforcement-
specific design.
"First of all it's a 24/7 facility," Reeves
said, explaining the nuisances that differenti-
ate police buildings from others. "After 12
months, this building can be up to three years
old."
The various working and public spaces in
the building must be carefully monitored
with controlled access second only to state
prisons, Reeves said. In addition, all critical


systems must be designed with redundancy
to ensure uninterrupted operations through
any event manmade or natural disasters.
County Engineer Ramon Gavarrete and
Sheriff Chief of Staff Lisa McGehee are'
project managers for their respective agen-
cies and wili oversee the design, permitting
and construction of the 53,000 square feet
building on 8.8 acres adjacent to the 4-H
barns.
"We want to be good neighbors,"
McGehee said, noting that a 4-H representa-
tive was impressed with Wednesday's pres-
entation at the DeSoto City Volunteer Fire
Department.
Members of 4-H were initially concerned
that the sheriff's office was going to overlay
parts of their county-provided land. But,

K-9 unit treated to third-grade visit


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Who's
about three-foot-tall, weighs
about 70 pounds, and attends
Avon Elementary School?
A third-grader?
Well, them too, but those
third-grade students were able
to see and pet two of Avon
Park's "top dogs" as the K-9
unit visited Avon's third-
grade class Friday.
Sgt. Marc Wilbur, supervi-
sor and K-9 trainer, gave a
brief presentation, which was
followed by a very lengthy
question and answer session,
and then a short demonstra-
tion of how well the dogs
behave in exciting situations.
"This was probably the best
question and answer session
we have ever had," Wilbur
said. "The kids were well
behaved and had some great
questions. This is actually the
first time a third-grader ever
asked about the bite per
square inch."
Which, by the way, is about
870 pounds per square inch.
Rex, whose partner is Mike
Abell, is 9 years old. Ringo,
whose partner is Jose Melina,
is about 4 years old (he won't
tell).
All four officers did their,
best to show students both the
force and the gentleness
involved in assisting their
partners on patrol.
Hex, just 3 years old and
the newest member of the
force, was at home sleeping
and could not make the pres-
entation.
He and his partner, Orlando
Esquibel, are on the night
shift.
An independent News-Sun
poll showed that if Ringo

Steve 'the chew toy' Worley during a demonstration at Avon
Elementary School on Friday.


were in Iowa, he could possi-
bly be president. He's that
popular among Kathy Lamb's
third-grade class.
"I liked Ringo the best; he
was a lot stronger," Sarah
Bilbrey said after the presen-
tation.
"Ringo is a lot prettier,"
said Gabriela Ortiz, also in
Lamb's class.
Jean-Carlos Echevarria,
who is in Mildred Molena's
third-grade class, also pre-


ferred Ringo..
"I liked Ringo the best; he
has the lighter color, and
looks stronger," he said.
"He also looked to be more
gentle," the young scholar
added.
"Ringo barked louder, and
paid good attention," said
Jocelyn Torres, also in
Molina's class.
Officer Steve "the chew
toy" Worley donned a protec-
tive sleeve and 'allowed him-


self to be "attacked."
Each dog was ordered to
apprehend and hold Worley.
Then, the well behaved K-9s
stood watch as "suspect"
Worley was searched.
Finally, they escorted the
"suspect," walking alertly at
his side.
All the commands were
given in Dutch.
Most police dogs are bi-lin-
gual, and are taught a foreign
language so that they can
communicate clearly during
an apprehension and arrest,
often having to sort out their
commands from other loud
conversations.
K-9 officers can serve the
force up to 15 years, if their
hips and health hold out.
They are colorblind, and their
sense of hearing is approxi-
mately 5-10 times greater
than their human partners.
Additionally, a dog can
pick up movement very well
and their sense of smell is
more than. a million, times
greater than a human's.
It is estimated that a dog
uses 90 percent of their olfac-
tory (sense of smell) senses,
while humans only use 15
percent.
The dogs are trained
through formed association
and repetition.
In 1968 the first detection
dogs were trained in Europe.
In the 1970's dogs began
working for the U.S. Customs
Department.
It is sometimes difficult to
believe, but dogs have no
conscience, no feeling of guilt
and no concept of time.
And, from a crouched posi-
tion, K-9 officers can jump
more' than 10 feet into the air.


County considers cashing

out carbon credits


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Solid Waste
Management Director Ken
Wheel believes the county
could earn $1 million in its
first year of carbon credit
sales.
If the county commission-
ers are comfortable with
selling "intangible" proper-
ty, Wheeler said Highlands
County could make
$200,000 each subsequent
year.
"The Chicago Climate
Exchange only allows the
sale of net carbon credit,"
Wheeler said in a memoran-
dum Tuesday to the commis-
sioners. However, "Selling
carbon credits on the inter-
national market allows the
landfill's gross credit be sold
at a high value without
accounting for the county's
other carbon uses."
The Climate Exchange
requires accounting for other
carbon uses such as county
vehicles and electricity in
buildings.
Before going to market,
the county would have to
spend up to $15,000 to audit
its records for certifiable
credits and the commission-
ers would have to draft and


FCI@E'1ULa@UCFrj

approve a policy for the sale
of "intangible" property,
which Wheeler defined as,
"those non-monetary assets
that cannot be seen, touched
or physically measured and
which are created through
time and/or effort."
The landfill burns its
methane, created by decom-
posing garbage, in a flare to
control odor, which reduces
carbon emissions.
Because this process is not
required by the federal gov-
ernment, credits result from
the decreased carbon.
Wheeler has offered for
board consideration several
options to create revenue by
using the methane instead of
flaring it off.
The board moved forward
with an asphalt plant, but
other potential uses include
electricity generation and
compressing the gas for use
in county vehicles.
"It does not presently mat-
ter how the landfill gas is
burned," Wheeler said,
explaining, the asphalt
plant's use of methane
shouldn't hinder profits
unless the rules change.
Currently, carbon credits
are traded from $3.25 to
$4.35 per metric ton.

SEBRING The Sebring
City Council approved a reso-
lution Tuesday that will
require Sebring Airport
Authority board members to
file financial disclosure state-
ments, over the objections of
Councilman Scott Stanley;
The resolution was offered
after the State Commission on
Ethics ruled that'local officers
of dependent special districts,
which includes the Sebring
Airport, weren't required to
file the financial statements.
Every other ,city board
member in Sebring is required
to file the statements, and
consistency was cited as the
main reason to require them
from airport board members.
"We're requiring other
boards to do it, so we need to
be consistent," Councilman
Jeff Carlson said, adding that
the statements are "pretty
much worthless."
The statements include
information where the board
members works and the


addresses of any residences
that they own.
"We only have to put down
who we work for and where
we have our houses," Council
President John Griffin said.
"It's very simple and non-
intrusive."
Stanley disagreed, saying
that some who were interested
in serving on city boards
.chose not to because of the
forms.
"There are good people that
don't come on boards,"
Stanley said. "If the state
doesn't require it, we don't
need it. We're not going to do
anything with it anyway, so
why have themifill it out?"
The motion passed by a 4-
to-1 margin.
Also at Tuesday's meeting:
Council approved' a
motion to begin the process of
annexing property behind the
Heartland Cardiology
Building on U.S. 27 that will
house a new Cath center. The
plan is to build five 18,000
square foot commercial build-
ings on 1.74 acres of land,


which will "attract doctors to
the area," John McClure, rep-
resenting J.D.P. Land
Holdings, LLC, said.
"It's commercial, and it's
not a bleed on the city,"
McClure said of the proposed
property. "I think it would be
a good addition to the city."
The motion is to request an,
annexation ordinance and
development agreement from
the City Attorney, and refer
them to the city's Planning
and Zoning Commission for
further review.
0 A workshop to discuss a
non-ad valorem fire assess-
ment was postponed until
March. The workshop, origi-
nally scheduled for Dec. 18,
will be pushed back until after
City .Council elections in
March of next year, so that
any new council members can
participate in the discussion.

"The new council seated in
March will have to take action
on this," City Administrator
Bob Hoffman said, "so
instead of two workshops
with different councils, we
need to defer to a March
date."

93 pounds of 'personal' pot

seized in latest growhouse bust


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@ newssun.corn
AVON PARK An anony-
mous tip alerted authorities to
the latest marijuana cultivation
operation in which four sus-
pects were arrested on multiple
felony charges.
Approaching the home, offi-
cer Charles Proctor noticed the
"odor of raw cannabis coming
from the inside of the resi-
dence," he recalled in his
report.
After consent was given to
search the residence, it was
allegedly found to contain
plants cut into sections and
hanging from strings secured to
the garage walls.
Two large black trash bags
were also located outside the
home with clippings, including
leaves and stems, the report
said.
Several bottles of fertilizer, a
large carbon air filter, and three
large fans were also allegedly
discovered.


I Hebs -Mineals-Ora


The plants tested positive for
marijuana in a field test. Their
total weight was 93 lb., enough
for a first degree felony charge.
The four men arrested -
Yohalvy Alfonso, 26, Avon
Park, Ariel Santana, 34, Miami,
Danny Rivero, 29, Miami, and
Osmany Machado, 37, Miami
- were all at the residence
while officers arrived.
Rivero is listed as the owner
of the 205 Ballard Road home,
which he said he currently rents
to Alfonso.
Alfonso admitted the
cannabis was his, stating, he
hung it from the strings inside
the garage to dry it out. He said
he smokes marijuana and the
plants found were for personal
use, reports stated.
All four nmen were taken into
custody and booked into the
Highlands County Jail, each
charged with possession of
marijuana with intent to sell,
marijuana trafficking, and pos-
session of narcotic equipment.

Cremation.

Zet the whole story.
There's more to cremation than just the cremation.
For example, did you know that the cremated remains
can be buried, scattered or memorialized in a niche or
mausoleum? Prior to or following the cremation, families
can choose to have a service or gathering. In fact, we
encourage it. For many families, the service is the first
step toward moving ahead after a loss. Call or mail

PROGRAM
Continued from 1A

While the committee was
asked to look into the IB pro-
gram further, Juve. is respon-
sible for Vetter's visit to
HGMS.
Others on the committee
are the three high school prin-
cipals because IB will first
be considered at that level -
Stu Guthrie, Toni Stivender,
and Ruth Heckman, three par-
ents including Juve, School
Board Chairman Ned
Hancock, Director of
Secondary Programs Katina
Kramer, and Becky Fleck of
the curriculum department.
Rebekah Kogelschatz,
District Gifted and HAART
resource teacher for the mid-
dle schools, will represent the
HAART program on the com-
mittee.
There are numerous factors
on either side of the argument
to consider.
The current HAART pro-
gram, used in the middle and
elementary schools, is pro-
moted as low cost.
HAART classes are taken
at each school using current


teachers. Teachers in the
HAART program agree to
take five classes over a two-
year period in gifted educa-
tion, given by the district -
nearly the only cost of the
program.
The cost-to-benefit ratio is
so favorable that the program
has been "very well received
in other counties," Connie
Tzovarras, director of student,
services, said especially in
smaller districts, like,
Highlands.
"It is a relatively cost-neu-
tral way to address the needs
of gifted students and those
that are high performing,"
Tzovarras said of the HAART
program.
The IB program, while
non-profit, covers their oper-
ating expenses including
research into avant-garde
teaching methods by annu-
al school and student assess-
ment fees.
According to Alejandra
Adan, marketing and commu-
nications associate manager
for IB North America, fees
for an average school of 110
students are $380 per student.
That figure doesn't include'
all costs associated. with the


program.
"Our first group of ninth-,
graders started at 64 stu-
dents," Vetter said about the
Bartow program. "Of that, 27
remained to ,graduate. This
attrition is common for start-
up.
Bartow High taught rough-
ly as many students in 1995
as Avon Park High does this
year, but in a district with
more than 16,000 students in
high school alone.
Highlands County current-
ly has 3,600 students spread
throughout the district's three
high schools.
About 400 students popu-
late the HAART classes
across four middle schools.
The same number of high
school students are taking
advantage of either AP or
dual enrollment college class-
es offered through the high
school.
The HAART program, AP
and Dual Enrollment classes
offer students the flexibility
of taking some subjects at an
advanced level and others at a
regular or honors level, while
the IB program does not -

tion levels.


RIDE

He loaded up on calories and aimed for an 18
mph "ride time" average and decided before
hand he'd visil each rest stop.
"I wanted my first experience to be a good
one," he told another cyclist. "At 90 miles, if I
have anything left, I'll let it all go."
Because of Altimari's strategy of frequent
stops, he lost the lead pack after stopping at
Donaldson Park in Avon Park. Losing the
advantage of drafting, he rode with three other
riders, each one of them dropping off as the
miles ticked by.
He was strong, and his plan paid off.
"The last 10 miles, I was pulling 24 mph,"
Altimari said in the Kenilworth parking lot
after spending five hours and 15 minutes on


Editor's note
During the ride, Sebring resident Jack
"Jackie" Prescott, 52, died of natural
causes near Mike Kahn Road. The med-
ical examiner will make a final determi-
nation of cause of death. His death was
not caused by an auto accident.

Not including rest stops, he averaged
between 18-19 mph. And felt great.
"It didn't even feel like 80," he said, Sharon
by his side had finished her 55-mile ride earli-
er. "It definitely didn't feel like 102 miles." .

Benton commissioned a

her deputies were working in

Recent budget cuts pared

"You can still smell it,"
said Sebring resident Yolanda
Williams, who frequents the
neighboring Dollar General.
"You cannot believe how bad
it was, and the smell hit you
as you turned off Lakeview."
"It is going to take a while
to completely get rid of the
smell," Taylor said. "The
soft economy has stopped the
condo development."
"Since we are not going to

to a space reserved for a

Benton 'said the actual
Phase II will begin after she

Holiday shopping on Sebring's Circle: Sparking lights, later nights


By PATRICIA C. POND
News Sun correspondent
SEBRING Shopping in
Sebring's Historic Downtown
District features more than
lovely old buildings and inter-
esting stores. Old-fashioned
customer service and courtesy
are traditions that create a real
holiday atmosphere.
The variety of shops is
amazing: gift shpps for every
style, taste and budget; stylish
clothes from sporty and casu-
al to elegant party wear; cus-
tom jewelry and pottery often
created right before your
eyes.
Several intimate art gal-
leries offer beautiful selec-
tions of original art and giclee
prints from artists all over
Florida and the U.S.
Selections range from large
original paintings suitable for
the most elegant houses to
high-quality prints in sizes to
fit every home and budget.
Browsers and first-time
buyers are assisted with cour-
tesy and respect. Every effort
is made to be helpful, and to
find or create exactly what the
shopper is seeking.
Parking is readily available
on street and in parking lots
adjacent to the Circle. The


area itself is like a large open
air mall, and shops are within
easy walking distance for
most customers.
Most of the stores are open
from 9 or 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
weekdays, with shorter hours
on Saturday. The News-Sun
surveyed merchants in the
district by phone and personal
visits to identify those who
are extending shopping hours
and days during December.
The following shops respond-
ed:
0 Wild Artist Jewelry, 125
N. Ridgewood Drive, is open
from 10 a.m. until. 6 p.m.
every day; and at least until 7
p.m. Thursday when they
have classes. Co-owner Adam
Ray and Clark Abbott are cre-
ators of original, one-of-a-
kind jewelry, including
sparkling Swarovski crystals.
The shop is full of unusual
gift items of crystal, wood
sculpture, African and Asian
decorations the variety is
amazing.
Ray said beginning Dec.
17, they will extend their
hours from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Monday through Saturday,
and open Sunday, Dec. 23,
from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. for
last minute shoppers.


ABC House of
Scrapbooking, 110 N.
Ridgewood' Drive, is open
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday-Friday, and from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
They stay open at least until 7
p.m. Tuesday and Thursdays
when they have classes, and
anyone is welcome to shop on
those evenings. They have a
special display of Christmas
gifts and cards, plus a huge
variety of scrapbooking sup-
plies.
Owners Judy Bryan and
Karen Lanier will try to
accommodate their working
customers. "If people call us,
we will stay open later,"
Lanier said. Call 385-c2771.
LK Artworks Gallery,
104 N. Ridgewood Drive, is
extending its days and hours
during december. They will
be open Monday through
Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6
p.m. In addition to their large
selection of fine paintings,
owners Linda and Jim Kegley
have gathered hundreds of
gift items: crystal vases, jew-
elry, lamps, sculpture, pottery
and more. This month, the
gallery is presenting.an entire
wall of small, original art,
priced at $50 and under, just

in time for holiday giving.
The Wine Merchant, just
opened at 108 N. Circle Park
Drive, is open from 11 a.m. to
6 p.m. Tuesday through
Thursday.; and from 11 a.m.
to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Although they are open later
than most of the Circle shops,
they plan to extend these
hours closer to the holidays.
Call 471-9463.
Co-owners Glenda Herron,
Dawn Hamilton and Lynn
Hintz have selected more than
70 different varieties of
wines; They are especially
proud of the Limited Edition
Wines from small estate vine-
yards. Prices start at $6.50 per
bottle and there is a large
choice of varieties at afford-
able prices. The Wine
Merchant creates gift baskets
for any occasion, and will pair
wines with gourmet foods.

Late-evening food
Tropicool Restaurant is
always on "extended hours",
- open from 11 a.m. to 9
p.m. Monday through
Saturday, and 12-9 p.m
Sunday.
Tropicool sits on an
"island" in downtown Sebring
- the triangle of land between
South Ridgewood Drive and
.Lakeview Drive. Located at
313 S. Ridgewood Drive,
there is access to the parking
lot from both Ridgewood and
Lakeview Drives.
Co-owners Gary Oliver and
Pam Husman moved. here
from Big Pine Key to estab-
lish their beachhead on the
southern end of Sebring's
Historic District. They have
transformed a dingy, neglect-
ed building into a colorful lit-
tle restaurant with a tropical
island theme.
Although advertised as
"Cones 'n Coneys" (ice
cream and hot dogs),
Tropicool has more variety,
than the name implies.
On the "cool" side, there


are sundaes, shakes, malts,
banana splits, hot. fudge
brownie sundaes and floats or
ice cream sodas. All are made
with high-quality homemade
ice cream purchased from a
private dairy, according to
Oliver.
On the "hot" side, coney or


Chicago hot dogs come in
several sizes and combina-
tions. The condiments are
freshly prepared; no little
plastic envelopes.
In addition, sloppy joes and
pulled barbeque chicken and
pork sandwiches are avail-
able.

Apparently, a cell phone was mandatory, while riding on the EMCI Wireless float.

Get on the scale, Santa


tive Editor I was fixing dinner for the
family the other day when my
HOEHNE mother-in-law- came into the
rts Editor kitchen. She told me that the
Surgeon General was taking a
page from our friends in
Britain and calling for Santa
to slim down.
Moreover, he wanted us to
tell our kids to leave carrot
S and celery sticks for the jolly
old elf instead of the tradi-
tional cookies. "Why would
they want to do something
like that?" she demanded.
Putting on my best person-
with-a-crazy-idea voice, I
speculated., "Because he's not
setting a good example for the
children."
"Well I think it's silly," my
mom-in-law concluded.
She left me to fixing the
rest of dinnerwhile I specu-
lated if' I had been good
enough with my diet that day
to have a slice of bread with
my hamburger patty.
But my mind kept coming
back to the issue of Santa's
" waistline, and the Surgeon
S" General's interest in it. I'm
not surprised by it Santa has
already come under fire for


smoking a pipe Lau
and blackmailing
children into Lo
being good for Laura
toys. His weight
was for sure going ;o be a
topic of discussion for some-
one.
For as long as f can remem-
ber, back to the time I was
convinced there was a Santa
Claus, my image of him has
always been of a rotund figure
as per "The Night Before
Christmas." That image has
been portrayed time and time
again in our media remem-
ber "The Santa Clause?" Once
he became Santa, Tim Allen
gained weight faster than I do.
I've not seen "Fred Claus"
yet, but I've seen the pre-
views and the Santa in that
film is no lightweight.
I wonder what the problem
is. I'm not saying being fat is
healthy I didn't join Weight
Watchers to stay overweight -
but let's be honest here (hide
this part of the column from
your kids): Santa Claus isn't a-
real person. He's a mythical
figure that has existed for
hundreds of years in a variety


ra's
ok
Ware


of incarnations.
Why does he
merit this much
fuss?
What's next?


Will unions demand that
Santa pay his help? Will oth-
ers say he needs to step aside
for a younger, cooler Santa?
Will he have to prove he's
entering the various countries.
of the world legally? Will
People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals demand
he quit using reindeer?
If the above paragraph
seems silly, why doesn't the
whole thing about Santa
going on a diet seem silly too?
Speaking of which, I won-
der how (cover the kids eyes
again) the dads it could be
the moms, but for some rea-
son it always seems to be the
dads feel about giving up
their cookie snack for celery
and carrots. Who wants celery
and carrots after putting
together a bicycle? Cookies
are just the thing after you
spend the wee hours of
Christmas morning trying to
understand assembly instruc-
tions 'that were written by


someone with only a passing
familiarity with English.
I never, as a kid, looked at
Santa and thought, "gee,
Santa is fat! I think it's OK
for me to be fat too!" I would
like the Surgeon General to
find me one kid just one -
who would say such a thing
without being prompted to by
a weight-conscious adult. I
bet a cookie he can't.
You know what really bugs
me about this?
We have real concerns in
this country when it comes to
children. Autism. Poverty.
Child abuse. Babies born too
soon, needing medical inter-
vention. Kids needing med-
ical care. Kids being safe.
And the Surgeon General
decides to use his office and
.influence to berate a mythical
figure about his weight?
Somebody's priorities are'
messed up here.

dent. She can be contacted by

Perkins was a good
influence on players


Editor:
This letter is to address the
recent termination of "Coach"
Earnest Perkins. As a parent
of a student/football player
(in that order), at Avon Park
High School, I have witnessed
the influence this man has had
on not only my child but his
friends also. I have had a
chance to be around and listen
to them talk about the coach
and these guys have a lot of
respect for him.
At the beginning of the
football season he called a
meeting of the parents, and
players. I attended that meet-
ing and was very impressed
with the way "Coach" Perkins
- had his priorities and he
looked at the big picture not
just football, but academics
* and discipline also. Even I
was inspired after attending,
just the hope, knowledge and
respect he was placing in
these young men.
I recall hearing him speak
,about the kids getting up early
in the morning, coming to
practice even if it was raining
and at first I used to tell my
ss and son, you don't need to go to
reject- practice in the rain or you
don't need to go every day,
'e have you can miss a day. He would
prior- say "I have to go," and at that
meeting Coach was saying I
33870; know some of the parents are
il edi- complaining about all the
practice and them practicing
Sca in the rain, but if they were
getting up to go work for Wal-


Mart, they would go in the
rain. From that day on I never
complained about it because
he had a point and he was get-
ting them ready to be respon-
sible men.
I know he was brought in to
win football games and it
would have been nice to win
some games, but for me as a
parent (and a single parent at
that) it is nice to have some-'
one that influences my son
positively.
There are so many negative
influences out there, so to
have someone letting him
know that as long as he keeps
his grades up and the right
attitude, the sky is the limit
and there is life off the foot-
ball field. They can go a lot
further in life academically
than they can athletically.
* I feel that the priorities are
in the wrong place. We should
be more concerned with our
school, APHS, being rated a
"D" school for the last six
years opposed to how many
football games we can win.
In a conversation I had with
Mr. (Stu) Guthrie (APHS
principal), I asked about the
rating of the school and he let
me know that it has a "D" rat-
ing for the last six years. I
then asked him if he didn't
turn that around after being
here only two years would be
then be terminated also, he
stated that would be up to the
Superintendent of Schools,
but, he made the choice to ter-
minate "Coach" Perkins sole-
ly on his own, based on what
he had seen. I have no idea


what it was that he seen, but
myself along with other par-
ents and members of the
Booster Club seen this man
Earnest Perkins "Coach"
come to this small town and
make a difference.
From the time I've read
about Perkins being terminat-
ed I have had one question -
Where are our priorities?
C. Williams
Avon Park

Guest workers are
becoming 'fact of life'
Editor:
Amnesty, guest workers,
Anchor Baby's will destroy
Social Security and America's
economy, driving "all"
Americans into bankruptcy.
The illegal 'movement of
people from other nations into
our systems will collapse all
of our infrastructure.
No nation on earth can
withstand this amount of peo-
ple.
All of our political are
pandering to foreign nations
for their vote.
We must destroy the politi-
cal dreams of those who are
destroying our electoral
process. They, the political,
are hoping the illegal votes
will put them in office.
If those who are promoting
comprehensive immigration
law continue to stay in office,
the "New Deal," most of our
social programs, by Roosevelt
in the '30s, will cease to exist.
This will destroy America's
"safety net" causing untold


financial problems. These
same public officials are also
the lackeys of the "Big
Business, which controls our
Congress.
Putting millions of foreign
nationals on the rolls of our
social programs will destroy
Medicare, Social Security and
most all of the safety nets for /'"""''
American citizens. This com- /
prehensive immigration will
more than unlikely be pushed]
through in 2009. We must
have a third party that will
throw off the yoke of
American industry and pro-
mote "America First."
Do the math: Each foreign
national, Anchor Baby's who
gains citizenship can and will
bring approximately 27 farni-
ly members into the systern -
27 times 2 million, which
equals 54 million, will be
coming into our system. We
already bring millions inder
"legal immigration law" each
and every year. No nation on
earth does this. We cannot do
this and survive as a nation.
Save our sovereignty, vote
a third party that will put
America first in trade 'and a
nation with borders and a
nation that will enforce its'
immigration laws.
Those running for Congress
and the presidency are not lis-
tening to "We the people." We
have consistently told them
we do not want guest workers
or comprehensive immigra-
tion. The American voter has
said "No" to this many times.

Children should not let neighborhoods

dictate their future success as adults


"Copyrighted Material



Syndicated Content


Available from Commercial News Providers"


Disenchanted with the
neighborhood in which he
grew up, the negative envi-
ronment in which he lived,
along with the lifestyle he
was forced to embrace, a
young man shared with me
his dream to leave in pursuit
of better. He asked for prayers
as he struggles with this deci-
sion.
He said he knows there is
better beyond the borders of
his childhood community.
However, he was concerned
about the impact his decision
to leave would create among
family members and friends.
He does not want to be
labelled disloyal, a sell-out or
a traitor.
While encouraging this tal-
ented young man to do what's
best for him, I told him that he
was making the first step
towards empowerment. I
reminded him that the Bible
tells us to choose to embrace
blessings or curse. If he is
uncomfortable with his envi-
ronment, then that's an indi-
cation to pursue that which is
right outside of that area.
It is a fact that every person
is dramatically affected by
their genes and community
environment. Some may
linger out of loyalty to family.
Some may linger because
that's the only lifestyle they
know. Some may linger
because of lack of motivation,
while others may linger
because they lack ambition
and are lazy. Others see no
hope beyond the periphery of
their environment. The
biggest factor of all that is

encountered is the blame
game blaming others for
their pitiful lifestyle, there-
fore, their lives are orchestrat-
ed by family traditions and
environment.
The jails are filled with so
many young men and women
who chose not to follow their
dreams, but instead opted to
remain in an unhealthy envi-
ronment, where there Were no
positive role models and got
involved in the wrong stuff.
We need strong men and
women, strong community
leaders,; to take the initiative
to help these young people
through mentorship.
Brother Lafiff, also called
the "fade doctor" of Atlanta,
said, "Many of the young men
I mentor tell me that I'm the
only man they know that goes
to work everyday, and that
they can count on me to show
them stability, and to be an
uncle, cousin, father figure or
friend who won't judge
them."
Young black author Hill
Harper, who wrote the book
"Letters to a Young Brother,
MANifest Your Destiny,"
said, "I want young men to
have knowledge of empower-
ment, education and a strong
sense of purpose, compassion
and humility."
Fluke Fluker and William


Pader of the Village Nation
said, "The most powerful
thing that we can do for our
young men in crisis is to help
them pursue an education."
Farrah Gray, author of the
book "Realionaire," is a
young man who grew up in
the Chicago east side housing
project, became a millionaire
by age 15. Not by selling
drugs, gyrating on stage or
playing sports. Farrah, raised
by a single mother, said he
grew up in a community
"where drug deals and people
being shot to death were com-
monplace."
He writes, "It was a good

The American public has
also said "No" to world gov-

Go with the most tender cut
of beef to make your holiday
celebration extra-special.
Available either boneless or
bone-in, a rib roast is made up
of rib-eye steaks, and is ideal for
the most important occasions..

Go to Publix. That's the only
place you'll find Publix Premium
Certified Beef, carefully selected
through a rigorous process that
ensures consistent tenderness,
as well as the ideal balance
of leanness and flavor.


USDA
Select
t00oo tougn)


USDA
Choice
(just right)


USDA
Prime
(too latty)


Less than 7% of all USDA Choice
beef qualifies to be Publix
Premium Certified Beef.

Find what you need. Which
roast should you get? How
much beef do you need? Just
ask a Publix Meat associate,
who will be happ to help you
make a selection, or custom-cut,
bone, or tie up your rib roast,
or simply offer helpful advice.


Here's an easy recipe that
will yield irresistible results
and feed 8 people.

Ingredients

1 (3-4 rib) standing rib roast (4 1/2 Ib)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 teaspoon minced garlic
3 sprigs fresh parsley (rinsed)
1/3 cup plain bread crumbs
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Steps

1. Preheat oveh to 3250F.
Season roast on all sides
with salt, pepper, and garlic.
Place roast on rack in 13- x
9-inch baking dish (wash
hands). Bake 1 1/2 hours.
2. Meanwhile, chop parsley
coarsely. Combine in small
bowl with bread crumbs and
rosemary; set aside.
3. Remove roast from oven.
Coat roast with mustard and
then bread crumb mixture.
Bake 1 more hour or until
internal temperature reaches
145F (medium-rare) up to
170F (well-done). Use a meat
thermometer to accurately
ensure doneness.
4. Let roast stand 10-15 minutes
before slicing; slice and serve.


Use a meat thermometer to
check the temperature in the
center of the thickest part of
the roast (not touching bone or
fat). When the roast reaches the
desired internal temperature,
remove from the oven. Transfer
the roast to a carving board (with
fat side up) and cover loosely
with foil. Let stand 10-15 minutes
before slicing. The temperature
will continue to rise 5-10F.

Roasted asparagus makes an
ideal accompaniment, and you
can make it while the meat rests.

- Increase the oven
temperature to 350F.

* Take two pounds of fresh
asparagus spears, for
6-8 servings, and rinse
thoroughly. Line spears up
on a cutting board and cut
off 1 inch from the bottom.
- Place asparagus spears on a
baking sheet; drizzle with olive
oil and sprinkle with salt and
pepper. Bake 7-10 minutes
or until desired tenderness.


To carve the roast, place its
long bones on the bottom next
to the carving board. Use a
meat fork to hold the roast in
place. Remove bones by cutting
horizontally between the bones
and the meat with a sharp carving
knife. Set the bones aside (or
discard). Cut the roast vertically,
starting from the top (or fat side),
into 1/2- or 3/4-inch-thick slices
for each serving. Place each
slice on a warm plate and serve
aujus (with the pan juices).

A good wine pairing
would be a full-bodied red
wine, such as Merlot.

Enjoy. Once everyone has been
served, listen to your guests'
enthusiastic compliments,
and congratulate yourself
on preparing something
so marvelous, so easily.

WHERE SHOPPING IS A PLEASURE






The News-Sun www.newssun.com


Little things mean a lot to


people with disabilities


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Bruno
Litwinski of Avon Park
learned years ago that "God is
in the details" when he
worked as a General Motors
tool and die specialist work-
ing on engine transmissions.
Today, Litwinski volunteers
his time with Rebuilding
Together Highlands County
Inc., the local chapter of
America's largest home reha-
bilitation organization.
Litwinski and co-workers
like Bob Clark, John Jeffo,
Biz Alban and Dick Harvey
have installed more than 100
wheelchair ramps for disabled
people, either from pre-treat-
ed lumber or store-bought
aluminum models.
But it was the ingenuity of
Litwinski that recently found
a new way to enable JoAnne
Warchol of Lake Placid, a
severely disabled person, to
drive her wheelchair outside
into the fresh air. Litwinski
invented a simple technique
to pour concrete ramps for
about $100 less than store-
bought models. Over the past
six years, that would have
been about $10,000 worth of
ramps, a tidy sum for a mod-
estly budgeted charitable
organization in a low income
county, and an economical
way for disabled persons to
have multiple 'entrance and
exit ramps.
Litwinski's answer was to
find a way to pour concrete
with sufficient reinforcement
to avoid break-down at the
tapering lend. The reinforce-
ment came in the form of
store-bought steel shelving,
which comes in modules that
just happen to conveniently
fit the average size of a ramp.
The total cost? About $25
excluding travel to and from
locations a savings of up to
$100 per ramp.
Rebuilding Together's local


chapter builds at least 20
ramps per year.
A selfless and humble man,
Litwinski simply says, "it's
all in a day's work." When
he's not doing rehab projects,
which is mainly on weekdays,
Litwinski volunteers his time
at Our Lady of Grace Church
in Avon Park where, among
other things, he is an usher.
He leads a pretty active and
productive life for an 84-year-
old man.
If you'd like to join
Litwinski and his crew as a
handy volunteer, call
Rebuilding Together's local
office at 402-6909.


JoAnne Warchol, Lake
Placid, enjoys the ability to
'finally get outside when and
where I want to.'

Best holiday gift-


is the gift of life


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Do you
know what the best gift you
could give this holiday season'
would be?
Maybe your friend, neigh-
bor or loved one might need
it.
It's the gift of life it's
blood!
With the holidays
approaching fast, the need for
blood donors will be on the
rise. With the thoughts of
travel, shopping, food and
family, people forget to
donate blood.
The need for blood knows
no holiday.
The holiday season, is his-
torically Florida's Blood
Center's slowest month. In
Highlands County less than
2.9 percent of the population
donates blood, but 60 percent
will need it. There is no upper
age limit; most medications
and conditions are OK and a
person can donate blood one
year after cancer treatments,

Bring Him your heart for a wonderful peace v9. wac


Some of the most precious
gifts come to us from chil-
dren. Whether it is a crayon
drawing, a hand print, a glitter
deluged Christmas tree cutout
or homemade card utilizing
every ounce of creativity and
glue! These are treasures we
keep.
It's not monetary value that
makes them keepsakes. It is
the heart of the child all
wrapped up in the simplicity
of the gift. .
The same is true if a child
gives a gift of voice, dance,
poetry, or instrumental per-
formance. They are giving of
themselves and there is no
more meaningful gift than
that.
Perhaps that is why of all
Katherine Davis' many intri-
cate compositions heard and
performed by millions and
praised by scores of' publish-
ers and critics, the one she is


Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop


most remembered for is
"Little Drummer Boy."
In it is the heart of
Christmas enacted through a
child's gift.
The story is told of how her
love for folk legends likely
inspired her to pen the simple
tune and words. Also, the tim-
ing of the Great Depression
brought to light some tales of
poor people giving to the


Christ Child out of their
poverty. Many couldn't afford
even the smallest gift for their
families during those terrible
years. And being on the brink
of war, somber moods pre-
vailed.
Originally, in 1941, when
she composed the piece for
which she would become
most famous, it was titled,
"The Carol of the Drum." The
child of poverty asked if he
could play for the Christ
Child and Mary nodded her
approval. Then he played his
best receiving in return the
Child's smile.
But, as inspiring'a compo-
sition as it was for the times,
it got pushed aside for the
more sentimental pieces as
soldiers went off to war.
Uncovered, rearranged and
renamed, Harry Simeon pre-
sented "Little Drummer Boy"
to the world in 1958 making


70-year-old Katherine Davis a
star. During the height of the
Cold War, it was like a peace
prayer in the midst of the ten-
sions.
. Peace. It is still the desire
of every heart.
And as the shepherds came
to the stable and brought
nothing but awe and wonder
at what. the angels had pro-
claimed, imagine a tiny shep-
herd boy with only a drum
and song in his heart to give.
Had this been a reality, it
would have been added to
Mary's treasures as the
Scriptures say in Luke 2: 19,
NKJV, "But Mary kept all
these things and pondered
them in her heart."
Jesus Christ came and
offered us His peace a" peace
He longs to give to every
heart presented to him. Selah.

It's officially winter at
Highlands Hammock State
Park and our seasonal volun-
teers are arriving. Some sea-
sonal staff work on equipment
or construction projects, oth-
ers provide administrative or
ranger station support. Many
volunteers have come season
after season, adding their
experience and expertise to
the daily operations at the
park.
I'd like to introduce you to
Kevin Evans today. Kevin and
his lovely wife Cheryl have
been seasonal winter volun-
teers at the Hammock for 11
years! It hardly' seems possi-
ble, but you've probably
heard that familiar saying,
"time flies when you are hav-
ing fun." Fun along with hard
work is something that Kevin
and Cheryl have mastered
well. They spend theif winters
here at the Hammock and
their summers at national
parks.
Living the dream of every
recreational camper, Kevin
says, "Sometimes I can't
believe it myself." Taking
advantage of early retirement
and moving into full-time
camping can sometimes be a
challenge. Kevin and Cheryl
did what many full-tifmers do.
They started out spending a
few winters on the road
before they cut loose and
went "full time."
Life in an RV can really,
truly be a blast. "We spent
this past summer at Bandalier

or early spring and then begin
sending applications out. If

y


you've ever thought of trying
full-time RVing, you might
want to visit Kevin for some
tips.
While his wife Cheryl,
works in our administrative
office, Kevin speeds
his winters provid-
ing tram tours for
our park visitors.
Tour schedules are 1
p.m. Tuesday
through Fridays and
1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.
Saturday and
Sunday. Now that
teal Kevin is here, we
ida are able to add addi-
tional trams to meet
Harris demand.
. In the past, tours would
often sell out within minutes
of the Ranger Station opening
at 8 a.m. With Kevin on duty,
we can offer additional tours
so that visitors won't be
greeted with that sold out
message as often as used to


Soup for the arts


occur.
Tours, which take about an
hour, transport visitors to
remote areas of the park, that
you don't get to see other-
wise. You'll see. alligators,
wading birds, a vulture roost,
and a variety of other crea-
tures that call this park home.
Along the way, Kevin will
narrate the story of the park's
history, natural communities,
and all sorts of intriguing
information you might not
have known otherwise.
It's a great way to see
wildlife and enjoy the expert-
ise of a guide to answer any
questions you might have.
Tour fees are reasonable, just
$4 per adult and $2 for chil-
dren age L2 and under. Park
admission is just $4 per vehi-
cle (up to eight people per
carload). The Hammock Inn
is also open and serving lunch

Tuesday through Sunday.

Concert Band

prepares for

Christmas

Concert
Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK As the
conductor of the Highlands
County Concert Band and on
behalf of the members, the
public is invited to the
Christmas program. The
event will take place at 7:30
p.m. Friday in the South
Florida Community College
auditorium.
For early arrivals, the pre-
show will feature the Brass
Menagerie Quintet. This fine
ensemble has been perform-
ing in the Highlands area dur-
ing the past two years. They
will set the tone for this
Yuletide happening.
The concert band will play
favorite Christmas melody
and medleys with the help of
many Sebring High School
concert band students.
Because of the extended, but
rewarding, marching season,
these young musicians didn't
have time to prepare their
own Christmas program.
According to director
Colorado Paniagua, these fine
musicians are looking for-
ward to sharing the stage with
their "mature" counterparts
. in other words -
"retired."
Two special features of the
concert will be a medley enti-
tled "Santa Comes to
Dixidland" and a trumpet
solo by Larry Vezina, a tone
poem entitled Winterscape,
with band accompaniment.
. Tickets may be purchased
from any band member for a
$6 donation fee or may be
purchased at the concert.

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Linda Wells
and Melanie Boulay, co-pro-
ducers, announced auditions
for Highlands Little Theatre's
production of "Pirates of
Penzance" will be at 6 p.m.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday
and Saturday, as well as at 9
a.m. Saturday. The casting
call will be held in the
Thakkar Pavilion at
Highlands Little Theatre,
which is behind the Sebring
Public Library in the Altvater
Cultural Center. Ruth Ann
Esseltine and Sandra White
have agreed to assist as audi-
tion pianists.
"Pirates," a Gilbert &
Sullivan musical, has a won-
derful plot. Frederic was
apprenticed to a band of
pirates until his 21st birthday.
When he is released from his
indentures, he falls in love
with Mabel, one of Major
General Stanley's daughters.
It is only later that the pirate
king and Frederic's nurse-
maid (who erroneously
apprenticed him) discover he
was apprenticed until his 21st
birthday. Having been born
on Feb. 29, he is thwarted
from his plan of bringing the
pirates to justice because he
remains apprenticed to them.
This delightful plot, with
lots of singing and dancing,
brings us to an entertaining


and surprising conclusion.
The cast includes Frederic,
a young man who is very
proper and charming; Mabel,
a young flirty ingenue; Ruth,
a middle-aged woman who is
a trouble maker and comic;
the Major General Stanley, a
mature man who is comedic;
at least six cops, six more
pirates and six or more maid-
ens.
The play, directed by Jim
McCollum and assistant-
directed by Kristin Taylor, is
sponsored by the News-Sun.
* Taylor, who is also the
choral director, needs the fol-
lowing voices: Mabel and all
lead sisters sing soprano from.
a High C to Low C, A and D.
Ruth has a heavier voice and
sings a High A to Low G. The
female ensemble are a mix of
first, second and third sopra-
nos as well as first and second
altos. The male lead,
Frederic, sings tenor; the'
Pirate King is a bhritone/bass,
and the Major General is a
baritone. The remaining men
sing in various ranges from
tenor to bass. Big legitimate
voice's are needed for all char-
acters.
The show opens Friday,
March 28, and runs for three
weeks at the Lakeside
Playhouse. Copies of the
music are available by calling
Jim McCollum at 385-5188.

winner named
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Betty
Canfield, of Sebring, was the
Gallery Walk winner of a 14k
gold, rolled wire bracelet and
earrings created by Ruth
Lovell of Tampa.
J. Harry Canfield, the win-
ner's husband and photogra-
pher, said, "Betty and I do
enjoy strolling around the
Circle area to see the works
of art. We are in awe at what
people do with a brush or a
bucket of clay. I have no tal-
ent in this area. I do spend
many hours reading photog-
raphy books or going to
classes to improve my knowl-
edge. My passion is with a
camera in my hands looking
for that next wildlife or land-
scape shot."
There is no Gallery Walk in
December. The next event is
scheduled for Thursday, Jan.
31.

Pastures, forage and livestock more than they seem


Before I became the natural
resource specialist for
Highlands County, I really
didn't know much about agri-
cultural land management
practices. Like so many oth-
ers, I thought that livestock
producers just had some cows
or other types of animals and
let them loose out on the pas-
ture. I never really gave it
much thought other than
admiring the beautiful crea-
tures and land while passing
by in my car. But the process
of managing land for agricul-
tural purposes is really quite
complex and takes a lot of
thought and effort to be suc-
cessful.
For example, did you know
that there is really not a "one
size fits all" plan for forage
production. It's not as simple
as going out to the field and
planting some seed. Prior to


planting, land man-
agers have a lot to
think about and plan
for. Many factors
such as soil type,
topography, near by
farm activity, labor
resources, type of
livestock and the
goal of the producer
must be considered.
Not only is it
important for pro-
ducers to be first-rate
livestock managers,


News
From The
Watershed

Corine Burgess


they must balance that skill
with excellent forage produc-
tion skills to be successful.
The reason is that while it is
important to 'have good ani-
mal management skills, prof-
itable livestock production is
mostly dependent on a pro-
ducer's ability to efficiently
convert forage
(hay/pasture/etc.) into meat,


wool or milk. If the
animals have diffi-
culty digesting what
is available or they
do not-care to eat it,
production will be
severely impacted.
While certain ani-
mals may prefer one
type of forage, it
may not be the most
nutritious for them.
Therefore, the type
of plant is critical as
is the timing of the


plantings. Different crops
require varying planting sea-
sons. To add to the challenges
of the producers, weather and
soil conditions can be a prob-
lem in different times of the
year. So not only does the
land manager need to be
knowledgeable about live-
stock, but types of forage and
time of year to plant the vary-


ing crops. Wow, this is getting
pretty complicated!
Even if the producer knows
the best crop for the livestock,
they still need to know if that
particular crop will do well in
the soil type available. It is
very important for the land
manager to acquire the soil
information prior to planting.
Fortunately, the Natural
Resource Conservation
Service provides soil maps for
all areas of Highlands County.
Another goal of the produc-
er is to grow several different
forages at the same time to
allow good grazing through-
out the year. In addition,
knowing the type, how much
and when to fertilize those
different types of forage is
critical. Let's add in some
herbicide and pesticide man-
agement to the mix and things
get even more complex.


As if all of that isn't
enough, producers need to be
grazing managers as well.
Things they need to consider
before they plant include;
using continuous or rotational
grazing methods? Where to
put those fences to separate
the pastures? How much of
what to plant and where? The
list goes on.
Now you understand that
livestock management and
forage production is a com-
plex business. These produc-
ers need to be good planners
and stay up with the latest
information. Fortunately, the
Highlands' Soil and Water
Conservation District through
the efforts of the Natural
Resource Conservation
Service is here to assist with
advice, information and even
cost sharing programs. If you

Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Caladium Co-Op hosted the
chamber of commerce mixer
on Nov. 29. The event was
well attended and guests
enjoyed a wonderful culinary
spread supplied by Co-Op
members in a Christmas
atmosphere, livened by the
soft piano music of George
Filip.
Local artist Mara Trumbo
took the opportunity of saying
her goodbyes before moving
to Tennessee at year end, with
special attention to a greatly
admired member of the com-
munity, Willard Campbell;
better known to all as "Mr.
Roseman."
Trumbo was touched by
Campbell's untiring rose tour
of duty, which brings so much
joy to Lake Placid residents in
offices, hospitals and retire-
ment homes, she wanted to
show her appreciation in a
special way. Her favorite
painting subject is Gary
Jenkins roses, so she dedicat-
ed her latest work to Mr. and
Mrs. Campbell as a sign of,
gratitude for all the inspira-
tion they bring to Co-Op

Pianist David Osborne to begin SFCC Matinee Series


Special to the News-Sun
AVON P4RK South
Florida Community College
is kicking off yet another sea-
son of Matinee Series per-
formances. The first show of
the season .will be a perform-
ance by pianist David
Osborne, at 1:30 p.m.
Tuesday, Jan. 8, in the SFCC
Auditorium, Highlands
Campus.
Otherwise known as the
"Pianist to the Presidents,"
Osborne has performed in the
White House for former pres-
idents Regan, Bush, Clinton,
and current President George
W. Bush. He also regularly


performs for Jimmy Carter
who has stated that "David
Osborne is one of the finest
pianists in the United States."
Osborne has performed
throughout the country,
including a nine-year stay
performing at the Marriott
Orlando World Center.
Osborne then moved to St,
Louis to work at the Adam's
Mark Hotel and perform with
the St. Louis Symphony.
While performing at the
Adam's Mark Hotel, famed
pianist Roger Williams heard
Osborne play. Williams
approached Osborne and
invited hinm to attend his con-
.. !


cert the following night.
While visiting after the show,

Osborne asked Williams for
advice on his career. It was
Williams who said to "get in
the Palace Court at Caesars
Palace in Las Vegas."
Osborne eventually became
the. third pianist to hold the
job in the restaurant; he occu-
pied that position for 10
years.
Osborne uses his classical
study and technique to exe-
cute flawless performances of
Broadway, romantic, classi-
cal, and ageless standards of
the American songbook. His
touch and feel for romantic


love. songs has created a style
that is unique only to him and
has earned him the title
"Master of the Romantic
Piano."
The '08 Matinee Series is
co-sponsored by Rick and
Jean Moyer and .Bill and Lisa
Jarrett.
Tickets range from $12 to
$18 and may be purchased
online 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, at www.south
florida.edu by clicking

Free throw woes costly in Devil loss


News-Sun photo by
ED BALDRIDGE
Avon Park's
Ricky Taylor
goes up for an
uncontested
bucket Friday
night. It wasn't
the field goals
that held the
Red Devils
back, however,
as free-throws
proved the
downfall in the
50-43 loss to
visiting DeSoto.


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK A strong
defense kept the Red Devils
in the race, but poor free
throw shooting cost Avon
Park the game on Friday night
when they lost 50-43 to the
D e S o t o
DeSoto Bulldogs in a
SO Class 4A
District 10
5 match-up.
Avon Park F r e e
43 throws, free
4 3 throws, free
throws," Red
Devils head
coach Luther Clemons said
after the game. "We have
been working very hard on
free throws. Our goal is to get
us up to 80 percent for the
team. Every practice we con-
centrate on free throws." '


And it looks like the Devils
needs to continue to practice.
Avon Park missed 16 of
their 28 attempts at the line,
only hitting 12 for 42 percent
on the night.
The Devils had the oppor-
tunity to gain the lead with,
just free throws in the fourth
period, but missed 13 times in
the final eight minutes of the
game.
During the first quarter,
DeSoto took an early 15-8
lead, as each team seemed to
just begin to get warmed up.
Avon Park would control
the inside easily both offen-
sively and defensively, forc-
ing the Bulldogs to hammer
" away at the net from the out-
side and hammer away they
did.
DeSoto's Jayarus Dennis


'Free throws,
free throws, free
throws. Every
practice we
concentrate on
free throws.'

LUTHER CLEMONS
Avon Park head coach

controlled the area outside the
three-point circle and hit three
of his downtown attempts,
scoring the lion's share of the
Bulldog's 15 points before the
second period.
The Devils began working
the down low and went to
Cleveland Nobles early and
used his aggressive style to


control the inside.
The strategy seemed to
work, and at times Avon Park
would rally and close the gap
to within a few points, before
DeSoto would wake-up and
adjust.
Avon Park continued to
play catch-up the rest of the
night, and was down 31-18 to
the Dogs by the half.
Defensively, Avon Park
played well, holding DeSoto
senior Shay Shine to just 16
points.
"Anytime you can hold
Shay (Shine) under 20 points
is an excellent night," com-
mented Clemons after the
game. "I am very pleased
with our defensive play
tonight, we went after the
ball. We are getting better

High School Boys Basketball


Blue Streaks, Robinson



'power past Pirates


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING After a thump-
ing at the hands of DeSoto
Thursday night, the Sebring
boys basketball team found
themselves in an unenviable
position, poised to drop into
the cellar of the Class 4A-
District 10 cellar.
"A loss tonight would have
put as at the bottom of the dis-
trict," head coach Princeton
Harris said. "That's not the
place we want to be."
Well, Friday nights 56-45
win over visiting
Braden River kept Set
them in the middle of
the district pack 5
thanks, in part, to aBrade
stellar night from for- Brade
ward Sam Robinson.
It was Robinson 4
whp opened the scor-


bri


n

I1


ing on the night, taking a dish
from guard Javier Medina and
canning a three-pointer from
the corner.
The Pirates bounced back
to take a 4-3 lead on two
inside scores from Mike
Egloff, but a Robinson (19
points) drive and a lay-in off a
steal from Chris Grbbb and a
power move from T.J.
Williams put Sebring back on
top.
Kal Almandari brought
Braden River closer, hitting a
trey an1d getting fouled to
make it a rare four-point play,
a free throw moments later


Will McNeal then tied things
up before Nathaniel Orcow
worked inside for two and
Robinson hit a short baseline
jumper for a 13-9 Streak lead
after one.
The Sebring defense was
charged up and attacking,
leading to easy breakout
buckets for the Streaks.
Medina started the second
stanza with a steal that led to
a Robinson lay-up, to serve as
a prime example.
But the team was also
working the ball inside well
and getting their share
ing of short attempts in
the set offense.
After two Pirate
ver free throws, Jake
Trussell scored on a
baby hook in the lane.
5 Braden River scored
two hoops in a row,
but Robinson answered with a
drive to keep Sebring up.
But five straight points
from the Pirates got them to a
22-19 lead.
Glenn Patton scored from
inside to edge the Streaks
closer, but two free throws
from Braden River extended
it to 24-21.
Grubb then converted a free
one and after a jump-hook
from Orcow tied it, a Grubb
steal and drive took the home
team to a 26-24 halftime lead.
Things looked like they
might start slipping away at
the onset of the second half as


the Pirates broke out with six
straight points, but Robinson
converted a free throw and
J.C. Howard nailed one from
long range to tie things up.
An Orcow tip in gave
Sebring the lead back and
Braden River would score just
one more point in the quarter.
Robinson, meanwhile,
scored four and Williams
closed out the period with a
follow for a 38-31 lead head-
ing into the final eight min-
utes.
Grubb drove the lane to
open the fourth to extend the
lead and after a trade of free
throws and a Pirate hoop,
Robinson hit a floater and
Grubb hit two more from the
stripe for a 46-35 lead.
From there, whenever
Braden River tried to make a
comeback, it was "Robinson
answering right back.
A Pirate hoop, a Robinson
jumper, another score for the
other team, 'Sam I am' drove
to the bucket.
One more visitors score
was answered when Robinson
drove the baseline for a
reverse.
And by that time, desperate
three-point attempts were the
mode for Braden River, and
sending the Streaks to the
line.
Grubb hit three-of-six
down the stretch from the line
See STREAKS, page 6D

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

Marlins expose,

benefit, from

system flaw

As much glee as there
must bein Detroit right
now, where the trade to
get Miguel Cabrera and
Dontrelle Willis has put
the Tigers among the
upper tier of American
League contenders, it's
just the latest chapter in
the roller-coaster exis-
tence of the Marlins.
By trading off their
two biggest remaining
stars, Florida, as current-
ly constituted, resemble a
AAA squad.
Their highest salaried
player is now one of the
guys they got in the
trade, left-handed pitcher
Andrew Miller.
And he's only sched-
uled to make a little over
$1 million next season,
with the entire payroll
expected to be under $10
million.
The Yankees had the
highest payroll last sea-
son, totaling over $195
million putting next
years' Florida payout at
about 5 percent of that.
Even the Devil Rays,
well, now the Rays, had a
$24 million payroll last
year, more than twice
what the Marlins will be
at this coming season.
This situation exposes
two major issues at play
- that Major League
Baseball simply isn't
going to work long-term
in Miami, and possibly
not Florida overall; and
that the players union
screwed up the last col-
lective bargaining agree-
ment.
After the luxury tax
threshold was established
- the amount a team
could spend before they'd
be taxed on the payroll,
with the tax then being
pooled into the revenue
sharing the owners put
on the table a minimum
payroll requirement.
The owners were say-
ing, we'd all have to

spend at least this much
money on payrolls overall,
and the union said no.
That means that a team
could spend as little as it
wanted to on the players, on
the team, on the product.
Florida received $31 mil-
lion as part of the revenue
sharing in '06, yet had a pay-
roll that year of $14.8 mil-
lion.
Sure, would be nice for
them to use that money to
make the team better, but
they don't have to instead
they turned the best profit of
any major league team that
year.
That wasn't from selling
out the ballpark either, as we
t-now how empty that stadi-
.1 looks most games in
'07 the Marlins had the low-
est home attendance figures
in the baseball, averaging
just 16,919, under 47 percent
of the parks' capacity.
Greedy owners, you might
say, but there was a chance
to put a system in place that
would have put that in check.
Sure, the Marlins won
more World Series in 10
S years than the high-spending
Cubs have won in 100, but
there's something wrong
with a system that has a team
win the Fall Classic one year
and then gut the team and
reel in the profits from the
revenue sharing.

every week, but we still need
to work on our free throws."
The Red Devils continued
to struggle at the free throw
line, hitting just two of their
six attempts during the sec-
ond period, but kept the
Bulldogs from running away
completely'with the game by
standing tough on defense.
After the half, the Devils
began to really push the issue,
and DeSoto had to adjust to
double teaming Cleveland,
who led the Devils scoring for
the night with 15 points under
the net. "
With the Bulldogs adjust-
ment, Avon Park was forced
to go to Jerry Sullivan who
continued to work the hoop
from the inside.
Sullivan would finish up
with 14 points for the night.
"Jerry (Sullivan) and Ricky
(Taylor) did an excellent job
for us tonight," Cleveland
said. "They both stepped up
and really made a
difference. During the fourth


quarter it hit me, and I kept
thinking, 'this is our game,
this is our game' when they
stepped up. It was a team
effort."
But the Devils would con-
tinue to struggle from the
charity stripe while DeSoto
continued to lead.
Late in the third period, a
hard pressed Avon Park began
to take shots from the outside,
but could not seem to net any-
thing.
"We began to shoot, but the
coach kept stressing for us not
to try and shoot on the out-
side, but to pass the ball down
low," Cleveland said..
Clemons did put the Devils
back on their plan of control-
ling the inside during the last
part of the fourth quarter, and
the Devils again gained
ground closing the gap .to
within two points at one time,
but would not be able to fin-
ish the race in the lead
Avo,n Park looked to
*bounce back from the district
loss at Okeechobee Saturday
night.
Final results were not
available at press time.

"We played a lot better
than we did last night,"
Harris said. "We shot the ball
better, worked a lot harder
and our defense really helped
get the offense going.
"Sam is just such a great
athlete but at times he scares
the heck out of me," he con-
tinued. "Sometimes he just
gets a little .out of control, but
at times like tonight, he kept
it under control and was a big
difference for us."
The Streaks will try to
enhance their district position
Tuesday in another tough
match-up at Palmetto.

evenly matched district,"
Harris said. "We're right in
the middle now and still have
time to move up."

After the

sale: Your

attorney's

Ongoing role

It's true that any num-
ber of catastrophes can
occur between when an
offer is made on a home
and the time the deal is
actually closed. Roofs can
start leaking or Heating,
Ventilation, & Air
Conditioning systems can
go on the blink; a tenant
can decide not to move
out or the home inspector
can discover signs of pre-
vious flooding.
These nagging "what
ifs" convince most rea-
sonable home buyers to
retain a real estate attor-
ney during the home-buy-
ing process -- and
beyond. But while real
estate attorneys are most
commonly hired to help
make sure the home-buy-
ing experience goes as
smoothly as possible,.
many homeowners con-
siult with their real estate
attorneys for years after
the sale, on a variety of
issues.

The FCBN is a network of top

in 1994, the' organization provides a

and market information to better
serve their clients. Participation in
the organization is by invitation only
of its membership.
The consensus of the group was
that, while strength of the different
markets varies, most of the commer-
cial markets are stable. The group
was addressed by several local attor-


neys, including Steve Richey, a pre-
mier land use attorney in Lake and
Sumter Counties. He related the chal-
lenges of getting approvals of devel-
opments through the regulatory
process.

Ocala was hit with the biggest change as the amount of

Real estate remains a strong investment Lake Placid Realtors get


Opportunities to
make big, quick
profits in residential
real estate tend to
come and go in
cycles. When a local
market is hot, fami-
lies may find it pos-
sible to buy a house
at an attractive price, /'
fix it up and watch In
its value rise in just a
few years. Kn
When the same Susan0
local market is at the
low end of the appre-
ciation cycle, reaping a profit
on the family home can take a
good deal more time but the
reward can be just as satisfy-
ing if price and location are
carefully considered.
Even in uncertain economic
times like these, history
shows that real estate is one
of the soundest investments a
family can make. During the
Great Depression of the 1930s
when the stock market plum-
meted as much as 89 percent,
housing prices dropped only
39 percent. According to most
of the research on housing
trends, prices continually stay
at the same level as and most
often appreciate faster than,
the rate of inflation. Housing
prices actually rose an aver-


S
the
low
Compton


age.
And,


age of 10 percent
during the recessions
of the mid-1970s and
early 1980s. .
Century 21 statis-
ticians report that the
rate of home appreci-
ation since 1990 has
been around 5 per-
cent nationally, with
inflation hovering
around 4 percent.
Homeowners, obvi-
ously, are still stay-
ing ahead in the real
estate game on aver-

with mortgage inter-


est rates the lowest they've
been in two decades, real
estate today is a more attrac-
tive investment than it's been
in years.
First-time buyers are the
big winners in this environ-
ment. Drawing up a budget
can help you and your family
decide on what you can
afford. Once you've deter-
mined a price and picked your
desired community, shop
around to find the best house
you can buy for your money.
This strategy can help you
realize greater appreciation
two or three years down the
road.
This is also a good time to


purchase a second or vacation
home. A bargain cabin in the
woods today might bring an
excellent return when housing
prices move upward.
Affordable second-home
prices also allow you to pur-
chase a vacation home that
can serve as a stepping-stone
to a larger retreat in the
future.
But appreciation isn't the
only advantage to buying a
home. The federal govern-
ment thinks home ownership
is so important to the future of
our country that it allows
mortgage interest to remain
the last substantial tax shelter
for families. Owners can also
take deductions on their own
property taxes. And, the prof-
it on the sale of your home
remains tax free as long as
you buy a house for a greater
or equal price.
So before you decide that
this is not a good time to
invest in residential property,
re-examine the financial ben-
efits of owning your own
home and put them to work
for you.

Susan Compton is broker/owner,
along her husband Hoz, of
Century 21 Compton Realty in
Lake Placid.

LAKE PLACID On
Sept. 23 the happening place
in Lake Placid was the Royal

Seacoast National Bank and
the Lake Placid Chamber of
Commerce sponsored a bowl-
a-thon to help raise money for

job, Wendy Larson of
Seacoast for organizing the
event.
As usual, many Realtors
were there to support our
community and share in the
fun. Leslie Godleski, associa-
tion executive, attended along
with representatives from
Realty World ACT Realty,
C.S. Edwards, Premier
Realty, Brantley Properties
and MC 2000 Realty. There
were strikes and gutter balls,
good eats, lots of laughs,
prizes, camaraderie, and,
most importantly, more than
$5,000 was raised for the
Lake Placid Junior
Achievement program.
Lake Placid Realtors are


hosting a fundraising event on
Jan. 12 to benefit the newly
established Highlands County
Chapter of the Children's
Miracle League and
Highlands County Humane
Society to be at the Lake
Placid American Legion. The
American Legion is a major

ing available. This event will

information, tickets or to vol-
unteer, call committee chair

work the Easter Seals organi-
zation- does for thousands of
people.

Special to the News-Sun
A home is usually your
largest single investment.
When you purchase a home,
you purchase homeowner's or
hazard insurance to protect
against loss from fire, theft or
wind damage.
Title insurance protects
against hidden title hazards
that may threaten your finan-
cial investment in your home.
You see, when purchasing a
home, you are really purchas-
ing the title to the property -
the right to occupy and use
the land and improvements.
Other types of insurance
focus on possible future
events and charge an annual
premium. Title insurance is
purchased with a one-time
premium and safeguards
against loss from hazards and
defects that, already exist in
the title.
There are two basic kinds
of title insurance: lender or
mortgagee protection, and
owner's coverage. Most
lenders require mortgagee
title insurance as security for
their investment in real estate.
Owner's title insurance
lasts as long as you, the poli-
cyholder or your heirs has
an interest in the insured


ROLE
Continued from 1

action is most familiar with
your property ownership
structure, it makes sense that
he or she can be a valuable
resource for home-related
advice down the road.
A few situations where
your real estate attorney can
really help after the sale
include:
Ongoing tax considera-
tions: How will the new tax
laws affect your property
taxes, including your home-
stead tax exemption or taxes
pertaining to home-equity
loans or lines of credit?
Check with your real estate
attorney long before the
crunch time of April 15
comes along so you can
begin planning early.
Boundary disputes: Is
the dead, tree on the edge of
your neighbor's property his
problem or yours? Who
should pay to have it
removed? What about when a
tropical storm sends its limbs
slamming down onto your
roof, causing thousands of
dollars in damage? Who is
responsible for repairs? Your
attorney can advise you on
what action to take.
Changes in family:
Marriage, divorce, death,
birth-any or all can have


property. Depending on local
practices and state law where
the property is located, you
may pay an additional premi-
um for an owner's policy or
you may pay a simultaneous
issue charge for the separate
lenders coverage.
Title search and
examination is first step
Insuring a home's title
begins with a search of public
land records affecting, the
property. The title agent or
attorney working on behalf of
the title underwriter examines
pertinent documents to deter-
mine whether 'the property is
insurable.
Those documents (among
others) include deeds, .wills,
trusts, outstanding mortgages
and judgments, property
liens, highway or utility ,line
easements, pending legal
actions and notary acknowl-
edgements.
When title problems are
disclosed during the search
process, they are corrected
whenever possible to avoid
future claims. According to
surveys done by the American
Land Title Association
AltaA), title problems con-
sistently arise in 36 percent,


implications to your title, or
ownership of your home.
Your real estate attorney can
also advise on certain probate
issues, and how they may
affect home ownership.
Changes in financial sta-
tus: Should your income
.greatly increase, your attor-
ney can counsel you on
whether your mortgage con-
tract penalizes you for paying
off your loan early. If income
declines, he or she can help
you with the paperwork of
refinancing your mortgage.
Home-equity loans or
lines of credit: Your attorney
can guide you on the merits
of borrowing against the
equity in your home to pay
off debts or other short-term
needs, as well as the finan-
cial and tax implications of
these kinds of loans.
Home improvements: If
you are planning to remodel'
or otherwise alter the struc-
ture of your home, check
with your attorney regarding
what permits are required for
additional construction, and
whether there are zoning
restrictions in your area that
must also be considered. If a
zoning variance is- necessary,
your attorney can help you
with the paperwork involved.
Title insurance review:.
Your attorney can review
your policy after it has been
issued to make sure you have


or one out of three real estate
transactions.
The process of performing
title searches and curing title
problems does not come
cheap. Industry studies find
that title insurers spend an
average of 92 cents out of
every premium dollar as their
cost of doing business.
What if a problem is
hidden or missed?
After all this searching and
examination, title problems
may still be hidden or missed.
A signature can be forged on a
deed; an unknown heir can
step forward to claim owner-
ship of the property; a power
of attorney used during a
property transfer could have
been expired or forged; a pub-
lic record may be incorrect.
In each of these cases and
many more, when there is the
appropriate title insurance
coverage, a policy will. offer.
financial protection (subject
to the terms and conditions of.
the policy). The title insurer
defends the title and either
"perfects" the title or pays
valid claims.
In 2005, title insurers paid
approximately $916.4 million
in claims.


the coverage you were prom-
ised. Also, if you are refi-
nancing, or planning to do
so, check with your attorney
about conducting, a new, title
search and reissuing the title
insurance for the adjusted
value of your home.
Permits for changes in
use: If one day you decide to
operate a business from your
home or use it as a rental
property, you'll want an attor-
ney's advice on what legal
-channels to go through, as
well as developing a legally-
binding contract for your ten-
ants.
Tax assessment: Should
your property taxes increase
sharply, your attorney can
advise you on the appropriate
course of action, such as how
to formally object to the
assessment.
