Shafer: 'One of my most rewarding years

State semis Football team will return plenty of talent for 2014

The Lake Wales Highlanders have
wrapped up a football season that
went from being a matter of survival
to a success story.
LWHS finished the year with a
9-5 record, which is not overly
impressive. But they can point to
injuries as the problem in all five
losses, including the 49-16 defeat at
the hands of American Heritage last
Friday at Legion Field.
Somehow, the Highlanders made
it all the way to semifinals of the
state 5A playoffs. That's a pretty
good accomplishment for a team
that was just 3-4 and seemed
destined to go nowhere midway
through the season. And an injury
played a major role in their sea-
son-ending loss.
"Our kids did a tremendous job,"-
says LWHS coach Rod Shafer. "It was
certainly surprising to a lot of peo-
ple who thought that they wouldn't
get this far."
At one point during the season,
Lake Wales was down to 28 varsity
players. It had three of its quickest
players who were defensive backs
and wide receivers out at the same
time. no intentions of getting involved in for over 1,500 yards this season, "We'll figure it out," Shafer says.

that are being made as evidenced by two separate Record of Decision documents.

Of the three ACC alternative basing locations, the Air Force decided to implement a decision to base up

Polk State's 10th

SAnnual MLK Breakfast

Open to Public

Polk State College's 10th annual MLK Breakfast
will take place Jan. 15, and will be both a celebration
MLK's vision for a color-blind society and the
College's work toward that goal.
"In 2014, the College will celebrate its 50th anni-
versary," said event coordinator Lucille Hadley.
"When you look back at the history of the College,
you find that it has always striven for racial equality.
With this year's event, we're recognizing that fact,
and connecting it to the vision Martin Luther King
Jr. had, that we would all be judged by the content of
our character, not the hue of our skin."
Students in Introduction to Environmental Science recently planted rain gardens around campus at Polk State Winter Haven. The breakfast will take place at 11:30 a.m. at

Some home

improvements may

lower home value
Home improvements are typically
made to improve the functionality and
look of a home, but renovations also can
increase the value of a home. Certain
changes to a home can make it more
attractive to prospective buyers, while
other renovations may make a home
less appealing. For example, a complete
overhaul of an outdated kitchen is often
a smart financial move, while installing
a pool or hot tub may not be worth the
cost to homeowners. Separating the good
from the bad renovations makes smart
financial sense, and homeowners looking
to improve their homes' resale values
may want to avoid the following projects.
Bedroom and garage conversions:
Changing a room's traditional function
often turns off buyers. For example,
turning a garage into a home gym might
seem like a great idea for you, but it
may not be so appealing to prospective
buyers. Buyers can certainly reconvert
the space, but they would consider the
costs of such a conversion when making
their offers on the home.
Stylized colors on trims and rooms:
Painting over unappealing colors is a
project many homeowners can handle. 113 Reedy Creek Dr Frostproof Custom built home on approx. 6 acres. A real nature

However, some may be discouraged by a home that
has too many bright colors or textures on the walls and
trims. Buyers often wanthomes that are move-in ready,
meaning they can get settled in before undertaking
large projects. A living room painted in purple or zebra
print may not fit the design scheme of many buyers.
Dark colors do not easily disappear, and tping off and
painting trimwork or changing it entirely can be equally
tixre-consuming. Stick with neutral colors when selling
a hiome, even if this means giving rooms a new coat of
paint before putting your house on the market.
SOutdoor hot tubs and indoor spa tubs: Many
people find soaking in a bubbling brew of hot water
quite inviting. But buyers often do not want to inherit
a used hot tub. tubs are cleaned and
maintained with sanitizing chemicals, some people
may view them as unsanitary. Removing a hot tub can
be labor-intensive. And much like a pool, a hot tub
may not be appealing tobuyers with young children.
Removing closets: Closet space is often high on
buyers' .priority lists. Turning closet space into an
office or removing a closet to make a room bigger
may be fine for those who are staying put. But these
modifications can be a turn-off to prospective buyers.
Too many features: In an effort to "keep up with the
Joneses," some homeowners will over-improve their
home to the point that it outshines all others on the
street There is a case for having nice things, but home-
owners may struggle to sell a home that is dispropor-
tionate to other homes in the area. Practice moderation
when making improvements to attract more buyers.
These suggestions are merely guidelines and should
not replace the advice of a reputable real estate agent
when marketing a home. Housing features and what-
buyers are interested in vary across the country. Some
items may be desireable in specific areas but unde-
sireable elsewhere. Making informed choices before
renovating can help homeowners recoup the largest
share of their investments. Hot tubs do not add tolthe home's value as most buyers d6onot want to inherit a used hot tub.
