Henscratch packs them in for



inaugural Blueberry Festival


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID There were
blueberries and people galore at
Henscratch Farms Saturday.
They were picking, eating and
drinking blueberries and even partici-
pating in blueberry contests as
Florida's 12th winery held its inaugu-
ral festival celebrating the tasty fruit
that is touted as much for its health
benefits as it is for its taste.
And there was plenty of tasting
going on, from the blueberry waffles
that started the day to the blueberry
pie eating contests for both adults and
children. Many pounds of the stuff
were consumed.
The day started early as hundreds of
people poured through the front gates
when it opened at 9 a.m.
An hour later, the line for the blue-
berry waffles stretched back nearly 20
yards.
"We had anticipated 400 for break-
fast and I think we've done that now,"
said Johanne Lauchman who owns
Henscratch Farms with her husband,
Christopher King.
Four contestants sawed their way
through a blueberry pie eating contest.
No hands were permitted so there was
quite a bit of blueberry and whipped
cream from their chins to their fore-
heads.
"Dig in!" hollered J.T. Monday of
Lake Wales as he lowered his head for
another mouthful.
The crowd cheered wildly as the
contestants continued slowly but sure-
ly to consume their individual pies.
Across the way, the Pine Ridge
Promenaders were entertaining the
crowd with a display of their square
dancing techniques.
"It's a berry nice day for a square
dance," said caller David Angell as he
gave instructions to the troupe, keep-
ing them busy with an allemande


BARRY FOSTER/News-Sun
The Hughes family including (from left) Ethan, 6; Andrew; Tara; and Benton, 4,
pick blueberries at Henscratch Farms in Lake Placid Saturday during the inaugu-
ral Blueberry Festival. There also was a pie baking contest, pie eating contest and
even blueberry wine for sale.


right.
People wondered what kind of wine
goes best with blueberries.
"All of them," responded Esther
Palermo of Lake Placid as she Stood
outside the small tent where J.D.
Barrett was pouring glasses of
Country White, Country Red and Pink
Hen.
"This is good, very good," said
Sebring's Cathy Sampliner. "How
much is a bottle""
The bottles were on sale inside the'
country store --=if you ould i:: m.
The lines there were just as long with
bottles of wine interspersed with
buckets of blueberries keeping the
cashiers engaged.
Many of those who had picked up


bottles of wine had taken a sample in
the winery, located in a large silver
silo just behind the store.
By 11 a.m. nearly all of this week's
blueberry crop had been harvested.
And still the cars kept coming.
Most had to park out in the back lot,
coming by the more than two dozen
vendors who had set up for an arts and
crafts show. There were everything
from tools to Italian magnetic
bracelets.
While Siaurday's blueberry festival
was the first to be held at Henscratch:
Farms, it is not the onlk such celebra-
tion in the Sunshine State: There also
are blueberry festivals in both the
communities of Wellborn and Palatka.


Seminar



to teach



sexual



offender



tracking

By PHIL ATnTNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands County Sheriff
Susan Benton and her staff will host a sem-
inar Tuesday called "Creating a Watchful
Eye" on everything people have wanted to
know about sexual offender tracking and
notification laws.
Ever since Megan Kanka, a 7-year-old
New Jersey girl, was kidnapped, raped and
murdered on July 29, 1994, every state has
had a law about registering'sexual offend-
ers.
Megan's attacker was a twice-convicted
sex offender who lived across the street.
According to news reports, he even partic-
ipated in the effort to find her after she
went missing.
Sexual offender laws require convicted
sex offenders and certain other types of
felons released from prison to register with
local authorities. That information is avail-
able to the public through local law
enforcement and Internet sources.
In 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-
3 to uphold such laws, noting that the prime
effect from notifying people about sexual
offenders in their area is for public safety,
not humiliating the offender.
SPeople %\ ho want to understand these
laws, \ hat they do and what they don't do,
can attend a free public seminar and work-
shop from 7-9 p.m. Tuesday at the county
commission boardroom at 600 S.
See SEMINAR, page 1llA.


Magnificent seven of Highlands think big


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County's valedictorians and
salutatorians of 2005 are an'
impressive group of young peo-
ple, who reflect the enthusiasm,
energy and hope of all three
high school's graduating class-
es.
Not just college bound, the
seven students who hold their
school's highest honors, have
already set longer term goals
and aren't afraid of thinking
big.
Robert Palmer, Avon Park


High School's valedictorian,
will be attending Wake Forest
University in Winston-Salem,
N.C., where he will begin the
study of medicine. He wants to
become a physician.
Suleman Gwaduri, Avon
Park's salutatorian, will be
attending the University of
Central Florida. He too is look-
ing forward to a career in medi-
cine, with an emphasis in psy-
chology.
Georgia Murdock, guidance
counselor at APHS, couldn't
say enough in praise of the two
students. "They're both gentle-


men," she said, "with the gift of
compassion. And they, are both
highly motivated."
Tyler Caton, Sebring High
School's valedictorian, and
Courtney Harris, Sebring's
salutatorian, also are headed
into the medical field.
Caton, who will be attending
the University of Florida this
fall, is excited about future
technology and wants to work
on its cutting edge. He looks
forward to a career in bionic
medical research.
"I'd like to help create fake
hearts and fake lungs," he said,


"to save people's lives. It would
be nice to make pacemakers
obsolete."
Harris, who will be attending
the University of Michigan (her
father's alma mater) beginning
this summer, plans on studying
straight through without a
break, in order to complete her
undergraduate work in two
years. Then she too will attend
medical school, where she
wants to research the organic
components of abnormal psy-
chology.
Cory Lewis, Lake Placid
High School's salutatorian, also


has chosen a career in medicine.
She will be attending the
University of Florida and plans
on a special) in dermatology.
Lake Placid's valedictorians
Ashley Thompson and Gibron
Nunez have different interests.
Nunez, who is heading to
Gainesville as well, plans an
undergraduate degree in
accounting, and then a career in
law, with a corporate specialty.
Thompson, who is heading to
college but whose plans are still
in flux, wants a business career
with an emphasis in marketing

SEBRING As the vol-
umes of data the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test generates are released,
educators say it will take time
to understand the patterns and
draw conclusions from the
results, although some general
trends are already evident.
"We don't have all the data
yet," said John Rousch, who
teaches industrial technology at
Lake Placid High School and
has just taken office as presi-
dent of the Highlands County
Education Association, "but the
returns on the elementary


schools show we're on the right
track. The test scores are
improving."
This is in spite of a school
year marked by the disruptions
of last year's hurricane season.
According to the state
Department of Education's
Web site, the FCAT is adminis-
tered to students in grades third
through 11th, and contains two
basic components: Critereon-
referenced tests, which measure
selected bench marks in mathe-
matics, reading, science and

Change for our Children



drive 'off to a good start'


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING It was a cham-
ber of commerce night
Thursday as Highlands Art
League members, guests and
friends kicked off the second
annual Change for Our
Children campaign.
The evening's entertainment
came in the form of perform-
ance art including South
Florida Community College
music instructor LuAnn Hawk
playing the piano to a set from
Heartland Idol Nellie Guzman.
There also were a number of
local high school art students
who portrayed different famous
artists from Georgia O'keef to
Andy Warhol. They were pre-
sented on a stage that had been
framed like a painting to high-
light the theme of the evening.
Food was prepared by Chef
Carlos Cardona with wines
poured from the Henscratch
farms collection. They took the
opportunity to introduce their
ew Pink Hen variety which
- eemed to be the hit of the
evening.

HIGHLANDS

in brief


Monday is

deadline for

grad photos
The News-Sun is prepar-
ing its annual "Salute to
the Graduates."
Photos have been sub-
mitted from high schools.
Seniors who are eligible to
graduate can confirm
whether their photos have
been submitted may call
the News-Sun at 385-6155,
Ext. 526.
The deadline for submit-
ting photos is 5 p.m.
Monday.


The money collected in this
second annual Change for Our
Children campaign will be a
combination distribution. The
majority will go to Highlands
Art League scholarships, with
the balance to be split between
the Children's Home Society,
the Children's Services
Foundation and the Take Stock
in Children programs.
As .each of the executive
directors spoke to the audience
in turn, each was presented with
their own can with $1,000
inside to be directed toward
.their individual efforts.
"The main thing to remem-
ber is that this money stays
right here in the community. We
want to emphasize that," said
organizer Patsy Cross.
One of the most entertaining
portions of the evening was the
bidding On 15 different works
of art donated by individual
members of the Highlands Art
Leagpe.. ,, -.
"'Aotll)y~e also had-a pink
flamingo -that was painted by
three artists-That was going to
be a door prize," Cross
explained. "Malcolm and Joyce
Waters won it but they donated
it back to the art league."
The art league then put it into
the auction and spirited bidding
between two hopefuls ran the
price,up to $700.
"Oh my gosh that was excit-
ing," Cross said.
One of the biggest bids of the
evening went on a seven course


meal for 10 donated by Chef
Oliver Stoeckle of the Oak
Room. That finally sold for
$1,000.
"We don't have the final
totals yet but I am told we have
a very good start toward our
goal of raising $14,000 for chil-
dren's charities," Cross said.
The balance of the campaign
will be collection cans that will.
be set out in different locations
for those who want to drop in
their pocket change.
Sebring Downtown
Merchants and Professional
Association President Rob
Viera said he would survey his
membership to see if they again
would offer discount coupons
to those who took out and filled
up cans.
Last year many of the down-
town merchants offered the spe-
cial discounts to help encourage
the distribution of the cans.
The cans are scheduled to be
collected and turned in Nov. 12
at the annual Highlands Art
League's Fine Arts and Crafts
festival held in downtown
Sebring.
Even though the kickoff
event is over, the special events
might not yet be finished. Cross
has intimated there might be
some teas and other special
events held to raise money for
the cause.
Those who want to donate or
need additional information
may call the Highlands Art
League at 385-5312.

SEBRING Highlands
County's hurricane recovery
efforts will soon ramp up to
coordinate with other counties.
On Monday, the United Way
will officially donate $30,000
to the 'Highlands Emergency
Recovery Operation for a long-
term recovery coordinator for
both Highlands and
Okeechobee counties.
Christine Justensen of
Wauchula is already in the posi-
tion, and has been since the sec-
ond week of March. Her job
will involve raising money for
the HERO foundation, writing
memorandums of understand-


ing between different counties
and agencies, help with case
management, and writing appli-
cations for state, and federal
grants to help with recovery,
HERO Executive Director
Ryan Haynes said.
Justensen previously worked
with residential rehabilitation
for the Florida Institute for
Neurological Rehabilitation
(FINR) from 1998-2002, han-
dling as many as 123 cases at a
time.
Her work now is similar to
rehabilitation because she's still
helping people. She usually
does anything to help people,
she said, whether it's Big
Brothers and Big Sisters, the


News-Sun
SEBRING Being a rural
county, central Florida has a
healthy population of pickups
and sport utility vehicles..
Unfortunately for Florida,
pickups represent the highest
number of fatalities of any other
type of vehicle on the road.
In 2003, Florida had 315
pickup fatalities 15 percent
of all those killed in motor vehi-
cle wrecks. Each year, the nunm-..
ber of people are killed in
Florida from pickup wrecks is
five times the number killed in
the 1995 bombing of the
Murrah Federal Building in,


March of Dimes, or Heartland
Horses & Handicapped.
For the last three years,
Justensen said she worked
"raising babies" as a mom, or
"family coordinator."
Her job will involve helping
people in the aftermath of hurri-
canes, Haynes said. It may just
be the start of linking several
counties in central Florida to
help in recovery. He said
HERO has already bought a
license to link into the $45,000
computer database and network
the Heartland Homeless
Coalition Inc. has set up to
organize the HOME Investment
Partnership Consortia.


Oklahoma City, Okla.
While pickups are twice as
likely to roll over as passenger
car, the biggest reason why
more people die in wrecks is
from not wearing their seat
belts.
According to Buckle Up
Florida, a public information
arm and law enforcement liai-
son of the Florida Department
of Transportation, 78 percent of
,pickup,,..oc.cupants killed in
Florida in 2003 were not using
a safety belt. Of those killed, 85
percent of 16-20 year olds
weren't buckled up.
Safety belts are the single


most effective tool to reduce
fatal and nonfatal injuries in
motor vehicle crashes, accord-
ing to Buckle Up Florida. They
are 45 percent effective in
reducing fatalities in passenger
cars and 60 percent effective in
light trucks.
"Buckle Up In Your Truck"
is a collaborative effort involv-
ing .all eight states in the
National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration's
Southeast Region: Alabama,
Florida, Georgia, Kentucky,
Mississippi, North Carolina,
South Carolina and Tennessee.

detection K-9 unit arrived on
scene, the dog alerted to the
scent of narcotics coming
from inside the Jeep. Officers
had Casares step out of the
car so they could search it.
They found a long, thin
manila envelope in the glove
box. It contained an orange
Ziploc bag containing a white
powdery substance that later
field-tested positive for
cocaine.


Police still in search of missing girl


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun
SEBRING The flyers are
up all over town.
"Have You Seen Me?" it asks
with a small photo of 14-year-
old Jasmine Jones. The Hill-
Gustat Middle School eighth
grader has been missing since
Mother's Day.
According to her grandmoth-
er, Janet Jones, the teenager had
asked if she could go to a
"block party" with a friend.
Janet said a young man picked
Jasmine up from her Lakeview
Drive residence and she has not
heard from her since.
"It was a gray car with a
spoiler, that's all I know about
the car," she said.
Later, Janet said she contact-
ed the boy her granddaughter
had said was taking her to the
event but he told the grand-
mother he hadn't gone and in
fact knew nothing about the
party.
Janet now says she has
doubts that any such party took
place.
In fact, this is not the first
time the 14-year-old has been
gone for more than a day. Janet


said one time she had been out
for the entire weekend.
"She's always been back by
Sunday to go to school the next
day," she said.
Jasmine had left for the party
on Sunday, it was the following
Tuesday her grandmother
reported her.as missing.
"Sometimes
she'd be gone
for a day or
two, so I just
waited for her
to come back.
But when she
didn't come
JONES back by
Tuesday, I
reported her missing," Janet
said
Sebring Police Officer Larry
Carmody has been handling the
case. He said he has been trying
to reach her via her cellular
telephone .but to date has not.
been successful.
"I've called the number but it
goes right to the answering
service. I have not been able to
get a response from it yet," he
said.
Carmody said he has learned
that there is the possibility that


she might be with a young man
in the southwest portion of the
state.
"She apparently asked her
grandmother how far Fort
Myers is from here," he said.
The investigation is continu-
ing and whether the girl left of
her own volition and why she
might have left remain unan-
swered questions.
"We have received some
information that somebody who
may have made a threat to her
but we have not yet been able to
confirm that information," he
said.
In the meantime, Janet said
she had talked with some of her
granddaughter's friends to try
and determine exactly who it
was that picked up Jasmine
from the house and where they
might have gone. However, she
has been unsuccessful in find-
ing out his identity.
Jasmine is 14 years old, she
is 5 feet, 5 inches tall with
brown hair. If anyone knows
her whereabouts they can call
Janet at 382-0175 or the
Sebring Police Department 'at

Ragoodial charged with fraud through false returns


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING A sales clerk at
The Home Depot allegedly
tried to bilk the store.,put of
$8,000-$10,000 in:false returns
Last year.
According to complaint affi-
davits, Jacqueline Ragoodial,.
36, of Sebring, worked at the
returns desk at the home supply
warehouse. Legitimate cus-
tomers would come into the
store with merchandise to
return and the original sales
receipt, each of which had a
transaction number.
She would handle the return
and note both the transaction


number and the value of mer-
chandise still left on the receipt,
reports said. For example, if a
customer had bought $500 in
merchandise and only returned
$100 in goods, she would do a
second return using the transac-
tion code and product codes of
various items in the store to
make it look like the customer
had come back to return other
items, reports said. Allegedly
she would double check to
make sure she didn't return
more than the amount left on
the receipt.
She would then forge a return
slip, reports said, or simply
would not fill one out, then take


cash and gift cards from the
drawer.
Store officials noticed the
fraud Aug. 7, 2004, when they
reported it to the Highland:s
County Sheriff's Office. Some
20 transactions totaling'$'4,000
came from receipts dated in
April, May, June and July 2004.
According to reports, she
told deputies she actually took
between $8,000-$10,000 from
the store. She wanted to make
restitution to the store in lieu of
prosecution.
On Sunday, May 8, she was
charged under warrants for
grand theft and scheme to
defraud. Bail was set at $2,000.

County to


discuss


grant for


housing
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County commissioners are
looking for input into a grant
application for funds to help
with housing rehabilitation.
The county is applying to the
Department of Housing and
Urban Development for a two-
year, $750,000 Community
Development Block Grant.
J. Corbett Alday III, chief
executive officer of Meridian
Community Services Group
Inc. grant consultants to the
county said the grant is
meant to redevelop neighbor-
hoods and create jobs for work-
ing people. It should benefit
low- to moderate-income citi-
zens, he said, but eliminate
slum and blight and create fire
stations or other infrastructure,
as needed.
At the first hearing on May
3, Alday said the grant could
pay for water lines or other
infrastructure to bring in busi-
ness that would benefit the
county's poor.
Tuesday will be the last of
the two hearings. Alday has
recommended the county get
grants for housing rehabilita-
tion, building better neighbor-
hoods or commercial develop-
ment.
Housing Coordinator Penny
Phillippi told commissioners
that the county has turned over
one of the two-year grants each
year. She hopes to turn them
into bigger grants to make
more improvements.
Commercial improvements
have been done when the coun-
ty brought in The Home Depot
and will soon bring in a Lowe's
home improvement store. The
city of Sebring does downtown
revitalization through the
CDBG program, she said.
However, no citizens have
approached her about using a
CDBG on their neighborhood;

Placid with a "full spread," said
Eileen May, executive director
of the Lake Placid Chamber of
Commerce. "This means an
article with arts and photos."
May said this new article just
happened. The magazine is
expected out in July.
"The charm of the town is
what's attracting everyone,"
she said, noting how the Lake
Placid chamber has had visitor
after visitor, all day, every day.


"It's a great problem to
have," she said.
The town's first major men-
tion showed up in May 2003.
Writers for Southern Living
found so much to write about,
they had to come back, May
said.
In the May 2005 issue, the
town got an entire page in a
Florida travel section.
Murals apparently made the
biggest impression on the writ-
ers, as did the small-town
charm.
May said a new mural about

needy each year is in
progress on the south side of
the Wauchula State Bank on the
corner of Main Street and

chamber snatched tip the copies
it had, May said.


Town honors commitment



to county's safe house


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID After
hearing an impassioned plea
from a county commissioner
and the county's director of
human services, the Lake
Placid Town Council voted to
give $3,000 for the operations
of the Highlands County Safe
House for five straight years.
The cities of Avon Park and
Sebring have also made $3,000
contributions. Mayor John
Holbrook said the Lake Placid
council put the same amount in
its 2005-06 budget, then ques-
tioned why a town of 1,600 res-
idents should have to contribute
as much as cities five times its
size and larger.
Instead, Lake Placid cut its
contribution to $1,000. That
prompted County Commis-
sioner Bob Bullard and county
Human Services Director
Kevin Roberts to show up at the
council Monday night asking
for the rest.
Bullard said the flow of
money goes both ways, point-
ing out that officials from Avon
Park and Sebring complain that
the county sends as much
money to Lake Placid as it does
to their larger cities.
Bullard noted that Lake
Placid gets county beautifica-
tion funds once every four
years, rotating with Avon Park,
Sebring and the entire unincor-
porated area of the county.
"You don't want the county
distributing funds based on
population," Bullard said.
Bullard and Roberts argued
that the safe house had a vital
function to all residents by
saving the lives of abused
women and children and break-
ing the cycle of abuse. They
recounted how difficult it had
been to bring the safe house to
Highlands County and keep it
open.
"I thought that we could have
solidatiii\. that we could send
the state the message that we're
all going to sing from the same


sheet of music," Roberts said.
Roberts described the safe
house as a personal crusade
that, for him, began 10 years
ago when he had to send a bat-
tered woman with cerebral
palsy and her children to a
Lakeland safe house the
closest at the time.
She questioned why
Highlands County had no place
for abused women to go.
Roberts said her plight inspired
him to help her and families
like hers.
Roberts got the ball rolling
until a coalition of civic groups,
churches and individuals came
together and opened the county
safe house in 1995.
Since then, the safe house
has temporarily sheltered 1,800
abused women and children
and helped some of those find
safe housing of their own.
The Peace River Center was


eventually contracted to operate
the Highlands County Safe
House. Then, a little more than
a year ago, the county learned
the center would close unless it
could raise another $366,000 a
year for operating expenses.
Bullard said Peace River
kicked in another $180,000.
United Way donors gave
$33,000, the county chipped in
$30,000 and the Children's
Services Foundation con-
tributed $21,000. Money has
also come from private sources
and the county's three munici-
palities.
"To get state funds, everyone
has to be involved," Roberts
said.
The We Care Hotline oper-
ates from the safe house 24
hours a day in conjunction with
the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, Roberts said.

Couple, worker charged with running illegal pharmacy


* "Copyrighted Material

SyndicatedcContent


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING A couple and
their employee have been
charged with running an alleged
illegal pharmacy.
Raul Evangelista Magana,
37, was charged with practicing
medicine without a license and
practicing pharmacy without a
license. His bail was set at
$2,000.
His wife, Maria Victoria
Magana, 41, and Arcelia
Abundis Flores, 23, were
charged with practicing medi-
cine without a license, practic-
ing pharmacy without a license,
and selling prescription drugs
without a license. Their bail
was set at $3,000 each.
The investigation began on
March 10, when a Highlands


County sheriff's deputy entered
Taqueria Y Tienda Hacienda
Mexicana at 509 W. Pine St. He
requested painkillers from the
woman behind the counter,
identified in arrest reports as
Maria Magana. She set a white
box on the countertop and said
a set of 10 cost $15.
The capsules were red and
black, with the word "Ampi"
and the number "500" printed
on them. They were sealed in
factory packaging.
The deputy purchased five
capsules for $7.50.
The capsules turned out to
contain 500 milligrams of
Ampicillin, a form of penicillin
that can only be purchased with
a prescription through a
licensed pharmacy.
At 11 a.m. April 22, 2005, a


second deputy posed as a cus-
tomer, entered the same store,
and asked the woman behind
the counter for pain killers.
The woman, identified as
Flores in arrest reports, alleged-
ly cols the deputy five capsules
at a cost of $1.50 each. The cap-
sules turned out to contain 500
milligrams of Polycillin, a drug
that requires a prescription to
purchase and can only be sold
by a licensed pharmacist.
Sheriff's deputies served a
search warrant on the store on
May 10, while the Magnanas
and Flores were present.
One deputy found three 500
milligram doses of Amoxicillin
under the counter. The label
said, in Spanish, that it is not
allowed to be sold without a
prescription or pharmacists


license.
Another deputy found
Oxytetracycline in a tube locat-
ed against the wall behind the
counter. It, too, contained a
printed message in Spanish stat-
ing the item cannot be sold
without a prescription.
Neither the business nor the
people involved had a license to
sell prescription medication,
reports said, but the items were
allegedly on display and tagged
for sale.
Raul Magana said he bought
the items from another compa-
ny through a third party, who
told him they could be legally
sold over-the-counter. That
name was withheld by deputies
pending further investigation.

County must meet DCA's demands if it wants land-use changes


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING' Highlands
- County may have to amend its
Comprehensive Land Use Plan
if it wants the state Department
of Community Affairs to
approve 41 land-use changes
the agency recently rejected.
At Tuesday's county com-
mission meeting, county
Development Services Director
Jim Polatty said DCA wants the
county to create urban service
areas around the three munici-
palities and to identify how it
will fund future improvements
to infrastructure, such as r6ads.
Once the urban service areas
are established, the county and
cities would work together to
plan for growth because they
would be required to notify
each other when developments
move into those areas, Polatty
said. Provisions for roads, utili-
ties and schools would have to
be made at the same time.
Land outside the service
areas would be closed to urban
development.
DCA instructed the county to
have adequate public facilities
and transportation in place to
serve whatever land use is des-


ignated for particular areas and
to show that population projec-
tions justify the need for them.
Specifically, DCA wants the
county to develop an urban-
growth strategy and an area
plan for northeast Sebring.
In the future, zoning must be
consistent with land-use
changes, DCA said.
Polatty said one advantage
the county had was when large
subdivisions were developed,
and developers didn't use all of
the residential density they had
available to them by choosing a
less-dense zoning. The county
would then create a land densi-
ty bank. Other developers could
use the unused density on their
parcels.
Don Hanna, a county plan-
ner, said the county had about
3,000 dwelling units in that
bank, but amendments to the
comprehensive plans used up
all of them. Polatty now counts
a deficit of 7,000 units.
Presently, the county requires
a quarter of an acre for a resi-
dent lot with a septic tank. DCA
wants to expand that to two
acres.
DCA also said the county


allows commercial and indus-
trial buildings to be built too
large for the land they are-occu-
pying. For example, a building
in an industrial area can cover
the entire lot, and a building in
a commercial area can cover
eight-tenths of a lot. If the
building has two stories, it can
cover four-tenths of the lot.
Hanna said DCA wants
industrial buildings to cover no
more than four-tenths of a lot
and commercial buildings to be
limited to one-fourth of a lot.
The county plans to propose
sixth-tenths in industrial and
four-tenths in commercial as an
alternative.
SCommissioner Bob Bullard
said DCA contradicts the
Florida Department of Health
and existing science on septic
tanks by saying that the systems
are detrimental to groundwater
when used with the soils in
Highlands County.
DCA is insisting the county
require less density with septic
tanks than the quarter-acre lots
the county allows. Bullard said
that will prompt developers to
put in sewer systems so that
they can build more dwelling


ToG odRstoSEE


units at a profit while impact-
ing roads, schools, water sup-
plies and lakes, he said.
.Bullard also pointed out that
limited the building size on
industrial property would
spread development over a larg-
er area rather than keeping it
confined to one area.
Previously, DCA approved
the county's Comprehensive
Land Use Plan with its
allowances for industrial build-
ings and quarter-acre lots for
homes with septic tanks.
Bullard said it seems like DCA
keeps wanting to change the
land-use rules.
Hanna said the county and
DCA have yet to decide when
they will meet again. Many of
the properties are under con-
tract for purchase. "It needs to
be quick" he said.

News-Sun. Sunday, Mlay 15, 200.5 Il


BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Youth for
Christ is always looking for
ways to get connected with the
youth of the community and
build relationships through
activities like basketball and
events like concerts.
One of their most popular
events is the lunchtime phe-
nomenon called Girl Talk, a
schoolwide social designed
exclusively for girls, where stu-
dents meet directly with YFC
leaders in a group setting to talk
devotion and give ministry in a
classroom during lunch.
Knowing a good idea when
they saw it, boys clamored for
their own version of Girl Talk.
YFC listened and, in October.
Dude Stuff was established in
Lake Placid, giving the male
participants the opportunity to
eat .lunch and talk about, well.
dude stuff.
"It's not exactly the same.
We have lunch and stuff like
that, but it's not necessarily a
devotion kind of thing," Reid
Thayer, director of Dude Stuff
said. "It's more kind of a talking
to the guys, chilling, talking
with each other. And then every
couple of months we'll do testi-
mony. We'll have somebody
like Andrew (Katsanis, director
of Youth for Christ) come and
give his testimony (and) I've
given my testimony.
"It's more of building rela-
tionships with the guys."
Unlike Girl Talk, which is
focused on ministry and devo-


tion, anything from sports to
girls are up for discussion dui
ing the newest YFC program.
Scripted meetings rarely occur.
But that doesn't mean they
never happen.
In fact, Katsanis is on a
"Who's Who" list of guest
speakers during the lunch ses-


sions. True, YFC is a faith-
based organization and a
Christian atmosphere is ideal.
But the program is more geared
toward getting the students
involved with something. They
are wide open to those who are
simply trying to enjoy their
lives or "outreach guys," as
Thayer refers to them.-
"You get some Christian
guys fellowshipping with non-
Christian guys," he said. "We
try to keep it open because with
Dude Stuff there's a lot more
non-Christian guys than Girl
Talk, where it's more Christian
and devotion. We just try to
keep it simple, not too much ol
your devotion because most of
the guys are outreach."
Teachers Joshua Virkler and


Vann Peeples approved the idea
and opened their rooms to make
it a reality, with Virkler taking
the first lunch session and
Peeples taking the latter.
Recruitment has been on a
steady rise since the inaugura-
tion of Dude Stuff, Thayer said.
A while back, he witnessed


about 80 students total in atten-
dance. Students simply needed
a little bit of time and maybe
some encouragement in the
form of free food for newcom-
ers.
"If you're a guy and this is
your first time, you eat free,"
Thayer said. "And if you invit-
ed the guy, you get free lunch,
too. That's basically what gets
them coming. They hear 'free
lunch,' and they're in the
room.
Thayer also said that he is
thankful for minimal resistance
from schools. With church and
state laws as difficult as they
are today, starting the programs
was relatively easy, due in part
to other activities YFC sponsors
at schools like Campus Life,


which is an on-campus ministry
before classes begin.
"The principals are pretty
cool about letting us come in
and do that," said Thayer. "In
Avon Park there are certain
restrictions about specific
things we can't do like what
things we can do on campus
and what has to be off campus
- but, in general, the principals
of all the schools have been
very gracious to us."
Dude Stuff has never left the
county, unlike its Girl Talk
predecessor, which was started
in Palm Beach two years ago
and has since grown.
Instead, it is slowly trickling
its way to Sebring and Avon
Park after the successful start as
a guinea pig, so to speak, in
Lake Placid.
Avon Park holds its Dude
Stuff meetings before school
due to legal concerns, and
Thayer says there is io time-
table yet for when it will arrive
in Sebring.

Niceties for the nurses


Progress Energy plans to raise rates

Highlands Regional Medical Center staff JoAnn Emery (clockwise from left), Sam Cyril, and

Thomas-Richards in celebration of Nurses' Week.


Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE
Progress Energy Florida has
asked a state agency for the go-
ahead to raise rates.
Citing costs to ensure electric
systems meet customer and reg-
ulatory expectations, the energy
supplier filed a request last
week with the Florida Public
Service Commission for a new
base rate plan beginning Jan. 1.
The St. Petersburg company
wants to increase base rates by
roughly $206 million annually.
If approved, the increase would
raise a monthly residential cus-
tomer bill of 1,000 kilowatt-
hours by $3.79, or about 4 per-
cent.
Progress Energy added
350,000 new retail customers
and more than one-third of its
current power plant capacity
during the last decade. The
company's current base rates
are more than 9 percent lower
than in 1994. Base rates
dropped in 2002, as well.


However, the cost of generat-
ing, transmitting and distribut-
ing electricity and providing
customer service has increased
dramatically over the last
decade, company officials said.
Other company points
included that
Roughly half of the
requested increase is for new
power plants to meet increasing
customer demand and new reg-
ulatory reserve expectations.
About $50 million will go
to the company's recommended
annual storm reserve fund con-
tribution, increased from the
current $6 million per year.
Another $30 million would
go to provide the level of serv-
ice customers expect, officials
said.


Roughly $22 million of the
requested amourft would
remove out-of-use fossil-fueled
power plants from sites, and
return those sites to their origi-
nal condition. It would also
cover depreciation costs from
wear and tear on facilities the
company placed in service.
The Public Service
Commission has scheduled
hearings on Progress Energy's
filing in July in Ocala, St.
Petersburg and Clearwater, and
technical hearings in September
in Tallahassee. The commission
will rule on the issue in late
2005.
Progress Energy will post a
summary of its rate case filings
on its Web site, www.progress-
energy.com.

Ordinance 2005-452

"bar" to mean an establishment
that serves alcohol for con-
sumption on its premises. Town
Attorney Bert J. Harris III said
those types of businesses

Ordinance 2005-459


makes the town's code on non-

Florida Statutes. In the past,
whenever a town changed its

non-conforming were given a
specific amount of time to com-

ever, business owners are not
obligated to bring their signs
into conformance. The ordi-
nance was approved and adopt-
ed at its second public hearing.
Ordinance 2005-457
makes a brief revision to a flood
ordinance the council passed
recently. Town Clerk Arlene
Tuck said a state review
revealed that one paragraph had
been omitted. It was passed at
-. it first public hearing. Itst sec-
ond will be in June.

Peace Officer Memorial Day to honor deputies at new location


Hopton, Rodgers

died 10 years ago
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County will do things a little
differently this year for the
annual Peace Officers
Memorial Day.
The memorial ceremony at 9
a.m. Wednesday will move to
the front of the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office to
honor Sheriff's Inspector Jim
Rodgers and Capt. Robert F.
Hopton. The two men died in a
plane crash on July 10, 1995.
The memorial honoring them
rests at that location. Rodgers
was, in fact, the speaker at
Highlands County's first Peace
Officers Memorial Day II
years ago.
The only other local officer
killed on duty was Sebring
Police Sgt. J.R. "Jim" Moore
Sr. who died in a traffic acci-
dent in 1976.
Annette Daneau, administra-
tive aide in the sheriff's office,

enced tests in reading and math-
ematics, which measure student
performance against national
norms.
The FCAT is primarily a lon-
gitudinal measuring device,
designed to track students from
grade to grade, the data helping
to determine a student's.course
of instruction depending on
how he or she progresses or
struggles.
While it is arguably the most
important test a Florida student
will take, it is only one of many,
all of which are meant to be

line of duty. Sheriff Susan
Benton will read aloud on
Wednesday the names of all
officers in the United States
who lost their lives in the line of
duty in the last year.
Benton and Lake County
Deputy Sheriff Bill Crotty, for-
merly of Highlands County,
will speak at the ceremony.
They both worked in the school
resource officer program when
he served at the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office.
On Feb. 8, 2005, Crotty and

The FCAT, therefore, is not
normally used as a snapshot
except at those specific times,
like the third grade, when a sin-
gle score, determines if a stu-
dent passes on or repeats a
grade.
Students who score in FCAT
Achievement Levels 3, 4 and 5
in reading or mathematics, are
considered on grade level, pro-
ficient or advanced. Students
who score 3 and above on
FCAT writing have scored at or
above a minimally acceptable
level.
Sixty-seven percent of
Highlands County third-graders
scored a 3 or better on the read-
ing test, 66 percent scored a

McKane and Deputy Wayne
Koester got shot by Jason
Lee Wheeler, 29, while
responding to a domestic vio-
lence call in Paisley. Koester
died from his gunshot wound.
Law enforcement captured
Wheeler after a day-long man-
hunt in the Ocala National
Forest.


Crotty's wife was among a
team of nurses who treated him.
His brother is Orange County
Mayor Richard Crotty.
McKane's wife, a Lake County
sheriff's office dispatcher,
helped direct authorities to the
scene.
That's why people who want
to honor law enforcement this


week can tie a blue ribbon onto
their car not only to honor those
who have died or been injured
in the line of duty, but also their
families. The ribbon itself signi-
fies the "thin blue line" of law
enforcement that stands
between security and lawless-
ness.

TwFFITI IT

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

A sadly slow,

first responder
Last week I spent a chal-
lenging, educational day with
Warren West, senior fire fight-
er, and his squad at the Avon
Park Fire Department for this
week's Tuffin' It With Tuffley.
With apologies to West,
Jonathan Prevatte, Jason
Simmons, Anthony Gaines and
Robert Border, here is the
most important thing I learned
- it's a very good thing that
I'm not a firefighter.
I say this because a house
could bum down in the time it
took me to pull up my pants
(that's the heavy thankfully
outdated padded, fire retar-
dant type of pants that are part
of the full firefighting gear).
Never mind the extra time
the jacket took, with its unfa-
miliar clips, or the breathing
pack with its adjustable straps
(which you have to jump into
the air to pull down tight
enough).
Harder Hall could bur
down in the time it took me to
get completely ready.
And its embers could have
cooled by the time I waddled
into place, already out of
breath and sweaty.
Not that I would see any-
thing of the conflagration. My
glasses don't fit under the face
mask of the breathing appara-
tus, and I'm blind as a bat
without them.
As for saving unconscious
victims people for whom I
would be the only chance of

FIREFIGHTING


Brains, brawn and discipline needed


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK It's no won-
der firefighters are heroes -
but for the people who want to
become one it sets a high bar.
It means there's a lot of com-
petition, but at the same time
only so much demand, so candi-
dates compete against the
cream of the crop.
At least 480 hours of special


schooling is required; there are
written exams as well as physi-
cal trials. There are more than
30 colleges and universities to
choose from in Florida that
offer firefighting training.
A firefighter has to know
math lots of it, including
algebra and geometry.
That's not a joke.
For instance, the Avon Park
Fire Department's tallest ladder


JARRETT BAKER/News-Sun
Avon Park firefighters Jonathan Prevatte (left) and Jason Simmons

is 75 feet long. But that doesn't
mean it can reach the top of a
75-foot building.
The engine can only get so
close to a fire, so the ladder typ-
ically has to be angled, loosing
distance in the process.
It's the firefighter who calcu-
lates the formula to determine
the angle the ladder should take.
Pure math.
And then there's the chem-
istry of fire.
But firefighters have to be
more than well schooled and
smart. They have to be physi-
cally fit and strong; able to not


just lift, but carry, or pull, or
push dead weights, through
smoke filled rooms, around,
over, or under an oddment of
furniture.
Firefighting is 5 percent all
out exertion, and 95 percent
humdrum, with a station
rhythm of equipment mainte-
nance and house cleaning, with
regular training sessions in
between.
They are paramilitary organi-
zations, so firefighters have to
believe in a chain of command
and work well as a team mem-
ber.


The first response to a fire is
the picture most people have in
their minds when they think
about firefighters; the sirens,
charged hoses, soaring flames,
billowing smoke. It's certainly
the adrenal rush of the job.
But it's the smallest compo-
nent in terms of time spent;
most fires are blackened in min-
utes, after that lie hours of
examining, shifting and clean-
ing. Ninety percent of firefight-
ing is incredibly dirty, hard

Polluted water bodies attract blind mosquitoes


Blind mosquitoes are the
bane of anyone living close to
water.
"Water" can include drainage
ditches, canals, swamps, rivers,
and lakes. "Blind mosquito" is a
common term for a family of
mosquito-like insects in the
Chironomidae family. Their
presence indicates pollution
(nutrients) in the water body.
The more nutrients the more
blind mosquitoes are produced.
We don't pay attention to them
until they cover our houses,
cars, yardvegetation or in gen-
eral become a nuisance.
Life cycle
The adult female midge lays
10 to 3,000 eggs. These usually
hatch in two to seven days, on
the second or third day after
hatching they build small tubes
and tunnels in which to live.
They circulate water through
their tunnels to extract oxygen
and food. After the first molt of
the larvae they turn a dark red
color, increase in size and


enlarge their tunnels. This stage
is usually called a blood-worm
(good fish food).
The adults emerge from the
water, swarm and mate during
the night. During this time they
will not eat and eventually die
in three to five days. Depending
on the species the entire life
cycle can be completed in two
weeks, usually it takes longer.
Breeding sites
Blind mosquitoes are the
most abundant organisms in
Florida's natural and man-made
water systems. They are abun-
dant in small and large natural
lakes, waste water channels,
sewage oxidation and settling
ponds and residential and recre-
ation lakes. These species usual
breed in polluted water three to
12 feet deep as apposed to bit-
ing mosquitoes that prefer stag-
nant water inches deep.
Importance
The blind mosquito has
become important during the
last 20-30 years because of: cre-


ation of new midge
producing habitats
close to residences;
water quality is
deteriorating mak-
ing more suitable
habitat; increasing
desire of humans to
live next to lakes
and rivers and other CEIEN
water bodies. Blind
mosquitoes can CONNE
emerge in phenome-
nal numbers Gary Mi
between April and
November. They
swarm in large num-
bers and are attracted to lights
around houses and other build-
ings at night. During the day
they will seek out cool and
shady areas. When large num-
bers are present they stain paint
and wall finishes. When they
find a way indoors staining can
occur on laundry, walls, ceil-
ings, draperies and other fur-
nishings. To say that this is a
severe annoyance is a major


VISION
ACTION

kulecky


understatement of the
problem.
Wherever midges
are found spiders soon
follow. Accumulations
of dead midges and
spider webs cause res-
idents to frequently
wash and maintain
homes and businesses.
A pile of dead midges
smells like rotting fish
as they decay.
Blind mosquitoes
are in important food


source for fish. Lakes
where aquatic midges
breed are often our best fishing

Control
Extensive research has been
done on controlling blind mos-
quitoes with the use of insecti-
cides against the larvae and
adults. The larvae live in or on
the bottom of the water body
and are more difficult to kill
than the surface breeding mos-
quitoes. With today's concern

on ecological safety we tend to
not use insecticides indiscrimi-
nately. Adults may be con-
trolled with various insecticides
that are effective for short peri-
ods of time. Residual insecti-
cides can be applied by fogging
or aerosol units. This is only a
temporary relief at best. Various
insecticides are available for the
homeowner. Remember to read
and follow pesticide label direc-
tions. Blind mosquitoes have
predators, diseases and para-
sites which are being investigat-
ed as biological control agents.
One suggested control
method involves the blind mos-
quito's attraction to bright
lights. Dr. Arshad Ali, an ento-
mologist with University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences experi-
mented with using very bright
lights to attract blind mosqui-
toes away. from buildings. At
the same time the buildings had
windows covered and the out-
side lights turned off.

this, but folks, you'd be toast.
I know this because I went
through a simple drill, entering
a smoke filled room, so dark
and obscured that I went from
not being able to see, to really
not being able to see; crawling
around on my hands and knees
- the breathing apparatus
going click/pssst, click/pssst,
click/pssst, just like Darth
Vader.
SI was the second man in a
team of two. It was my job to
keep my inside hand on my
partner's outside ankle. He
kept his inside hand on the
wall, guiding us along.
At the same time, I groped
with my free hand, feeling for
the body of the victim we were
told had been overcome with


fire departments for opportuni-
ties, rather than the large city
ones.

sooner, and you can become
pretty valuable."

somewhere inside.
Enter Igor.
Igor is a taciturn chap.
That's because he's made of
coiled fire hose and liberal
amounts of duct tape.
He's bound in sections, so
lie has a realistic trunk and
arms and legs not to look at,
but in feel and heft, and a big
rectangular blockhead.
He is a little on the thin side;
in flesh and blood, Igor would
be termed anorexic.
But he's also a dead weight,
and weighs a ton. A heavy ton.
And his arms and legs hang
loose, just like an unconscious
person's limbs would do.
He's hard to save. It's like
he doesn't want to come, he's
so hard to move.
Of course part of the prob-
lem is I was having to save this
fellow who acts like he does-
n't want out while I was on

Century 21 Compton Realty
announced that Brenda Godbee

Centurion Producer Award fol-

success.
The Centurion Producer
award honors Century 21

endar year. Siegle was present-
ed with the Centurion award
statue and lapel pin, in addition
to being recognized at the
Century 21 System's
International Convention.
"Brenda is a leader and inno-

she knows the community she

know exactly how much extra
weight. It had begun to feel
like a piano, and I couldn't get
a purchase. I was supposed to
get behind Igor's head, reach
under his arms, locking my
arms across his chest, so when
I pulled him backwards, his
head wouldn't hit the floor.
Only Igor is really, really
floppy.
And really, really heavy
(well to an out-of-shape 55
year old such as myself).
So all I managed to do was
grab a hold of his upper arms
and, pulling them above his
head, yanking him along, dis-
locating both of his shoulders
undoubtedly, and probably
adding a mild concussion into
the bargain.
To my credit, I did get him
to the exit.

success of the Century 21
Compton Realty.
Siegle has been with the
Century 21 System for more
than two years. At the annual
Lake Placid Board of Realtors
banquet she was named by her
peers as the Rookie of the Year.
Compton noted that she could-
n't remember another time
when an agent reached this
level of success so quickly. The
professionalism that Siegle has
brought to the industry has been
outstanding, according to
Compton.
"Achieving Centurion pro-
ducer status is a great milestone
in my professional career and
with a continued effort and
focus on my clients, I hope to
continue on this path of suc-

years.
According to West, Avon
Park firefighters start at
$26,100 a year. There is a raise
at six months to $29,557, and
another six months later, to
$32,229. Firefighters in Avon
Park top out at $37,443.


Igor and I would have been
marshmallows over the camp
fire had it been the real deal.
Once I reached outside, my
hands shook from the exertion.
I was dripping wet, and had to
sit.
So. The next time you see a
fire engine, siren roaring, rac-
ing full speed down the road,
be grateful that, like you, I pull
to the side. It's the best way for
me to be useful.

Council approves site plan for Committee wants to reclaim


clown foundation's new center Lorida school property


By SHARON JONES
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The Toby
the Clown Foundation Inc.
wants to construct a 5,150-
square-foot building where its
headquarters now sit on West
Interlake Boulevard. Monday
night, the Lake Placid Town
Council approved its site plan.
The two-story building will
have classrooms, a gift shop,
storage and a stage area where
clowns can perform to an audi-
ence.
The council's only concern
for the new building involved
parking. The 46 planned park-
ing spaces will be on property
owned by CSX Corporation,
the manager of the Central
Florida Railroad that runs
through Lake Placid.
The clown foundation is
leasing the property for $1 a
year. The railroad has declined
to sell it to the foundation or
give it a long-term lease, said
founder Keith Stokes.
Council members worried
that the foundation's planned


building could become obsolete
if CSX decided to end the lease
agreement and the parking was
lost at some point in the future.
"The railroad company does-
n't have a soft spot for clowns,"
said Councilman Bill Brantley.
"It's a year-to-year lease. If they
want the parking back, they will
take it back."
Stokes did not foresee that
happening. He said the railroad
company wants the property to
be maintained something the
foundation has agreed to do. He
pointed out that the foundation
has the first option to buy the
property, should the railroad
ever decide to sell it.
"I would love to say we
could buy it," Stokes said.
Town attorney Bert J. Harris
III advised the council to
approve the site plan and allow
the new building, despite the
parking issue.
Harris said several years ago
the council gave the foundation
a special exception to operate
the building, and the foundation
had acted on that exception.

"We've made a mistake, but
we made it, not them," Harris
said.
And Councilman Jim Waller
pointed out that the possibility
of the railroad reclaiming its
property was unlikely.
"The chances of this not
working out are slim to none,"
Waller said. "I think for. the
sake of the town's integrity we
should move forward."
A staff report issued by Lake
Placid Planning and Zoning
Director Jim LaRue recom-
mended that the council
approve the site plan.
The council eventually did
that, but it also agreed to send
the plan back to the Local
Planning Agency so that its
members could give their con-
ceptual approval to the eleva-
tion of the building.
The LPA is drafting architec-
tural standards for commercial
buildings, said LPA Chairman
Hoz Compton. Once those stan-
dards are finalized, they will
regulate the elevations of build-
ings, among other things.

Flash from the Past of Dec. 11,
1958.

A committee appeared before
the Highlands County School
Board in the meeting Tuesday
wanting to claim the Lorida
school property on a revert
clause that is in the deed. The
property was given to the
school board in 1925 with a
clause that the property should
be used for school purposes or
it would revert back to tle heirs
of the grantor.
The school at Lorida was
closed several years ago but
since then the school building
has been used for the storage of
school supplies and equipment
and also as a meeting place for
the 4-H Club which is a school-
sponsored activity.

IRS seizes funds used for

Sebring Chamber to take


over Christmas Parade


Family's corporation
owes back payroll taxes
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Funds used to
care for a Sebring man with
brain injuries were seized this
week by the Internal Revenue
Service.
Michael Conner, 28, of
Sebring, hit by a car at age 9 in
New Jersey and left para-quad-
riplegic from severe seizures at
a New Medico facility in
Wauchula, has been cared for
by his parents, Harold and Lena
Conner, since they were unsat-
isfied with his treatment at West
Palm Beach care facility.
They formed Mountain Top
Ministries, a corporation to
meet the needs of their son and
minister to other families
whose loved ones had suffered
traumatic brain injury. For at
least the last 12 years, they have


cared for Michael at their home
using his insurance payments to
hire care workers.
The New Jersey-based insur-
ance company required to pay
100 percent of the cost for
Michael's care which by his
father's records was $1,500 per
day only paid as much as
$310 per day, with no increases
for inflation or cost of living.
In 2003, the Conners were
able to get a court order to
increase the amount the insur-
ance company pays for
Michael's care, but could not
get any retroactive payments.
Lena Conner said they used
money from a malpractice set-
tlement to make up the differ-
ence. When that ran out, the
family refinanced their home
twice.
Meanwhile, the corporation
began to owe back taxes on
payroll.
On April 13, the IRS froze


his funds and allegedly pulled
Lena's and Harold's paychecks
from the beginning of April.
They had 21 days to work out
an agreement with the IRS.
According to Lena Conner, the
IRS was still reviewing the case
when, on May 4, the IRS seized
the insurance funds $34,000
- used to pay for his care.
Lena Conner said the corpo-
ration was able to pay health
care workers for April's payroll
out of the insurance payment
for May, but are out of money
again. If they could get a pay-
ment plan with the government,
then they could continue to use
Michael's funds for his care.

SEBRING The Sebring
Chamber of Commerce will be
taking on a new holiday duty,
the administration of the annual
Sebring Christmas Parade.
Dan Andrews, who took over
earlier this year as the new
executive director for the cham-
ber, said the decision to take
over the processional came dur-
ing the recent chamber of com-
merce retreat.
It will be a full circle of sorts.
It was the chamber that actually
ran the parade until the early
1990s, when it gave it up and
turned it over to the Sebring
Special Events Committee.
At the time, that committee
was comprised of radio disc
jockey John Meder, with former
city councilmen Jon Spiegel
and Jim Richirdrson. The com-
mittee originally administrated


both the parade and the Fourth
of July festivities.
Richardson later departed to
take a management job on
Florida's west coast, leaving the
committee to Meder and
Spiegel. Several years ago they
turned the Fourth of July event
over to the Sebring Jaycees.
However, Spiegel said the
special events committee will
continue on, assisting with
numerous other events.
"We still contribute toward
the parade each year," he said.
Although the chamber gave
up the administration of the
parade, they still served as an
integral part. Among other
things, they traditionally served
as the collection point for entry
forms for participants.
And the Cohan Radio Group,
which has sponsored the pro-
cessional for the past five years,
also will continue in that-role.


That means that Cohan
Radio. the Sebring Chamber of
Commerce and the Young
Professionals an arm of the
chamber now will serve as
the main sponsors for the annu-
al parade.
Andrews said the chamber
plans to call on both Meder and
Spiegel to consult on this year's
parade.
"We'll be asking them for
their expertise," said Andrews,
who indicated that members of
the Young Professionals and
chamber would serve as parade
marshals.
Spiegel said turning the
parade over to the chamber
would give him additional time
to focus on his other holiday
pursuit, The Carousel of Lights.
The parade usually serves as
the kickoff to the lighted dis-
play on the Circle.

Bill brings steroid testing issues into spotlight


Athletic directors say use hasn't been

a problem in county's high schools


BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
Even in the wake of failed state legis-
lation that would have brought steroid
testing into high schools, performance-
enhancing drugs remain a hot topic.
A bill that would have required the
FHSAA to come up with a pilot program
to implement random steroid testing in
one sport as early as the fall of 2006
passed the state House unanimously, but
the Senate version died in committee at
the end of the most recent legislative.
session May 6.
Reservations about where money
would come from to bankroll such a pro-
gram, and any further expansion of it to
include other sports, were expressed by
administrators across the .state, and
Sebring athletic director Terry Quarles

First start

a winner

for Hoffner
BY CHUCK MYRON
Sports Writer
SEBRING If you
have to start somewhere, it
might as well be at the top
Sof your game.
Hoffner's Lawn Care
head coach Paul Sebring
wanted to break in 13-year-
old Cody Hoffner on the
Dixie Boys league mound,
and Hoffner had the look of
a veteran in a complete-
game 10-3 win over
Dragon Drywall Friday
night at Max Long
Recreational Complex.
"That is awesome,"
Sebring said of Hoffner's
10-strikeout, one-earned-
run performance. "For his
first day out, I love it."
Hoffner also led his team
offensively, going 2-for-4
with four RBIs, two of
which came on a second-
inning double that put his
team (4-4) on top for good.
Like Hoffner, Dragon
Drywall (2-7) starter Jamie
Bexley pitched a complete
game, gave up six hits and
struck out 10, but Hoffner
issued only three walks to
Bexley's eight.
"Just throwing strikes
and letting the defense
back him up, that's the
biggest thing," Sebring
said.
The bottom of the Lawn
Care order joined Hoffner
in doing damage, as No. 8
batter Aaron Doty came up
with a two-run triple,
walked twice and scored
both times, while ninth hit-
ter Michael Polatty had a
double and an RBI.
Spencer Caton and
Garrett Faircloth also
delivered singles to aid the
Lawn Care effort. Blake
Shira spearheaded the
Dragon Drywall attack

shares those sentiments.
"Right now, you're barely making it
to cover your officials and your trans-
portation costs," she said. "Right now
my first question is, 'Who's going to pay
for it?'"
Lake Placid athletic director Cindy
Rivers thinks the Senate bill may have
stalled for other reasons.
"To be honest, I probably deep down
thought it wasn't going to pass, one for
the money," Rivers said. "But a lot of...
the more elite schools use (steroids).
That's how they get their advantage."
While Rivers doesn't think the
schools themselves are exerting pressure
on politicians, she believes well-heeled
parents might be.
"I think some of these people who
have the money may be influencing

some of our legislators," she said.
Yet steroids, and the multitude of con-
cerns they may raise, simply aren't a
problem in Highlands County, Rivers
and Quarles agree.
"I would say it's more in the bigger
schools, where it's more competitive to
make the team," Rivers said. "In
Highlands County, (with) the size of our
schools, if you're a decent athlete,

Sebring's Brian Bone recently won his first professional tournament.


Man at work


Golf was always a
passion for Sebring's
Brian Bone. Now, it's
also his full-time job.
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING
E everyone can't take
the Tiger Woods
route to golf star-
dom and jump
straight from college to the
PGA Tour and multi-million
dollar endorsement deals.
Likewise, the odds of tak-
ing the Roy McAvoy route
from the movie Tin Cup and
bursting onto the scene at the
U.S. Open are pretty slim,
too.
Most of the guys you see
playing on TV on the week-
ends got to the PGA Tour the
old fashioned way: slogging
through the mini tours for lit-
tle or no money, sometimes
for years on end, before final-
ly reaching the level needed


to compete among the top
175 golfers in the world.
In other words, a lot of
hard work.
That's the path Sebring's
Brian Bone is taking on his
path to the PGA Tour and,
after 11 months as a pro, he
knows just how steep that
path is.
"It's a grind, but what I'm
learning is that you can't just
go out and beat balls for two
or three months and get to
hitting it really well and think
you're just going to go out in
a tournament and dominate,"
Bone, a 2000 Sebring High
School graduate, said. "It
doesn't work that way.
You've got to build. It's a
process of gaining experience
and learning how to work."
Bone has already taken one
big step on that process,
shooting a 71 and prevailing
in a playoff to win a one-
round Next Tour event April
19 at Grenelefe East in
Haines City.


Bone said his first profes-'
sional victory was a relief and
a confidence booster more
than anything else because, at
this level of pro golf, it defi-
nitely isn't a bank account
booster. His grand prize was a
whopping $220.
"I'm able to see the fruits
of my labor and see that I'm
making progress, not just out
there beating balls and going
to tournaments and not get-
ting any better," he said.
'Being able to see a sign of
progress is comforting."
Bone plans to play on the
Next Tour until midsummer
before trying his luck on the
Grey Goose Gateway Tour in
the southern part of the state
where the stakes and the
competition are much
higher. Instead of the field of
50 he topped in his April win,
Bone will have to contend
with a field of 160 playing
three- and four-round events
for prizes up to $35,000.

R.J. Gators slips


y past Sertoma, 5-4

R.J. Gator's center fielder Jayme Faircloth (right) gets a special
handshake from shortstop Toby Solebello after making a last-inning
catch against Sertoma on Friday.


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
SEBRING R.J. Gator's
starting pitcher Matt Randall
got four runs of support over
the first two innings and held
off a determined Sertoma
team for a 5-4 win Friday
night at Max Long
Recreational Complex.
Randall finished with a
four-hitter and 10 strikeouts
and also went 3-for-3 and
scored two runs to lead R.J.
Gator's over .500 with a 5-4
record. Sertoma fell to 2-6,


five of those losses coming
by two runs or less.
R.J. Gator's scored two
runs in the first when Randall
doubled and Tyler Stanaback
reached on an error to bring
up Toby Solebello, who
cracked a two-run triple for
the first hit of his 3-for-3

Higgins keys

Lakeshore's

blowout win
BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
SEBRING Cody Higgins
must have had something better
to do on a Friday night that he
was hoping to get around to. Or
maybe he just enjoyed missing
two previous games so much
he couldn't wait to relax again.
Then again, maybe he was
just on.
Either way, the righty made
-quick work of Publix, throwing
only three balls in the first two
innings while striking out the
first six batters of the game, on
the way to an 11-0 rout in Dixie
Boys action at Max Long
Recreational Complex.
Pretty good given that
Lakeshore Car Wash has had
only two practices as a com-
plete team.
"We've had six or seven
practices, really. But as a whole
team we've only had practice
twice so far," Lakeshore head
coach Greg Adair said. "But we
don't give up and we're a gritty
team. I'm pleased with the per-
formance and we did well."
Higgins also did it with the
stick, chasing home
Lakeshore's first run with an
RBI double in the first to score
Caleb McGee, which proved to
the difference. Higgins had
missed the previous double-
header due to a band concert.
McGee, who scored from
third on that drive to center,
reached with a walk and stole
two bases to get the offense
going.
The very next inning,
Lakeshore (9-2) reeled off
another three runs, this time
without a single hit. Leadoff
batter Colt'Statler worked a full
count, then walked to start
things off. Josh Tomlinson fol-
lowed up with a walk of his
own before a dropped throw to
first on a grounder loaded the
bases.
One pitch later, the bases
weren't so loaded anymore
when a ball to the backstop
brought in Statler and moved
Tomlinson and Cameron
Willey to second and third.
Another error in the infield
then scored Tomlinson to make
it 3-0 and a Josh Chavis
grounder up the middle was
deep enough to bring in Willey.
Publix (4-5) finally got a lit-
tle momentum of its own in the
top of the third inning when
Sam Metz became his team's
first baserunner on a walk and
Gus Williams singled to put
two on. A passed ball then put
both players in scoring posi-
tion, but Higgins' eighth strike-
out of the night ended the
threat.
That's when Lakeshore put
the game in the bag.
Dustin Hinkle and Cody
Higgins batted twice in the
fourth inning, which started

Pair of Buick Scramble
qualifiers set for June
SEBRING Last year's
Buick Scramble qualifying at
Highlands Ridge North was
the biggest in the state. This
year, Tom McClurg is hoping
to set a new record.
Teaming 'with John Phillips
at Harder Hall, McClurg, the
head pro across the street at
Sebring Muncipal Golf Course,
is looking to send as many as
six local teams to the sectional
qualifying. To do that, both
Municipal and Harder Hall
will host local qualifiers on
Saturday, June 11.
Every seven teams in the
local event means another spot
in the sectional tournament, so
a full field at both courses
would mean a half-dozen local
teams advancing.
Cost is $65 per player for
the tournament, and each
golfer will get a shirt, one
dozen golf balls and a lunch
provided by sponsor Alan Jay
Buick. The rewards get even
better for teams that qualify for
the sectional and national
events.
Each player on the team
must have a certified handicap.

Panfish can save the day for anglers


FIRST
Continued from 1B
with a 3-for-3, one RBI night;
and scored on an error in the
second to tie the game at 1-1.
James Whitehead, who.went
1-for-3, scored on a Shane
Stayer RBI single to give
Dragon Drywall a second
unearned run in the third, but
the team wouldn't score again
until the sixth, when Mario
Gonzalez led off with a double
and scored on a Shira single.
In contrast, Lawn Care's
offense was the model of con-
sistency, coming up with at
least one run in every inning,
including the fourth, when
C.W. Vought scored without the
benefit of a hit. The catcher
walked, stole second, advanced
to third on a passed ball, and
came home on a wild pitch.
The Lawn Care defense
picked itself up after a shaky
start, when it committed two
errors in the first three innings,
and recorded the final two outs
on a 3-4-1 double play, which
appropriately put the ball in
Hoffner's glove to end the
game.


SLIPS
Continued from 1B
second for a 4-0 lead before
Sertoma began its comeback in
the bottom of the second when
Wyatt Johnson reached on an
error and later scored.
Buddy Mays (2-for-3) dou-
bled and scored on a passed ball
in the fourth and Spence Baker
did the same in the fifth to
make it a 4-3 game, but
Solebello followed suit with a
two-bagger and a score on a
passed ball in the top of the
sixth for R.J. Gator's.
Solebello's run proved to be
huge in the bottom of the sixth
when Mays tripled and scored
on a wild pitch to cut it to one
run before Randall got a strike-
out to end the game.
Brad Torres had a single for
Sertoma's other hit against
Randall.


SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Hoffner's Lawn Care pitcher Cody Hoffner releases a pitch during
Friday's game against Dragon Drywall at Max Long Rtcreational
Complex.


Lions 20
Highlands Today 1
The Lions sent 23 batters to'
the plate as part of a 19-run sec-
ond inning in a 20-1 win over
Highlands Today on Friday.
Winning pitcher Matthew
Grubb had a pair of doubles,
Matt Wilkerson had a single
and a triple and scored three
runs and Johnny Vega also
scored three runs in the second
for the Lions.
Grubb (four RBIs), Corbin
Hoffner (four RBIs), Felix
Basulto (three RBIs),
Wilkerson (three RBIs) and
Alex Rosa all had multi-hit
games for the Lions, who
improved to 8-1.
For Highlands Today, Cody
Ouverson and Cody Cleveland
both singled, Zach Osha dou-
bled and J.P. Parker drew a
bases-loaded walk.

TESTING
Continued from 1B
our athletes well enough to
know that they shouldn't use
it."
Neighboring Polk County
became the first in the nation to
implement a countywide
steroid testing program this
January, one that's funded by a
$63,000 federal grant.
Rivers believes grants,
through various avenues such
as the health department and
the sheriff's department, would
be an ideal way to pay for
steroid testing should the state
or even Highlands County pur-
sue it in the future.
"I would be all for it, if the
county wanted to implement
it," she said.
Quarles, while saying she
would be in favor of the state-
level plan if the FHSAA could
fund it, believes educating
county high schoolers about the
dangers of steroid use is a more
appropriate deterrent.
"Point out the dangers and
have the coaches stress that, no,
you shouldn't be using them,
and strictly just have the coach-
es push (an anti-steroids mes-
sage)" she said.
The proposed legislation
would have required such dia-
logue from coaches to players,
as well as in-school instruction
about steroid use via physical
education or health classes,
conduits that Highlands County
schools are already taking
advantage of.
"It's actually addressed in
the personal fitness course that
everybody has to take, so it is
covered in that curriculum,"
Quarles said.
Still, Rivers would like to go
a step further.
"I personally have no trouble
with random drug testing," she
said. "I think it would be some-
thing that would actually bene-
fit our student athletes. Steroids
obviously are something that
may cause problems. It's not
something that our kids should
be using."

WORK
Continued from 1B
The goal after that is to get
on the Hooters Tour and then
the Nationwide Tour, which are
sort'of like the AA and AAA
levels in pro Jbaseball,. In the
middle' of that schedule, he's
planning a shot at the PGA Tour
Qualifying School, a grueling
three-stage event that rewards a
lucky few with a spot on the
Tour.
Even if he doesn't make it
out of Q-School, the experi-
ence, along with the lessons he
can learn on the Hooters and
Nationwide circuits, will be all
part of the process.
"With golf, anything is a pos-
sibility," Bone said. "I could
make it to the final stage of Q-
School this fall and get status
on the Nationwide Tour. You
just never know. You can do
Monday qualifiers for
Nationwide or Hooters Tour
events and if you qualify for
one and make the cut and play
well, somebody could give you
an exemption into another one.
"You can (move up) really
fast if your game is in shape.
That's why I'm steadily playing
this Next Tour, so I can build up
the experience and the confi-
dence. I'll know when I'm
ready to take a step up. It's real-
ly just the experience and learn-
ing how hard I have to work."
While he's always had a pas-
sion for golf, doing it as a full-
time job is a whole new world
for Bone. In most jobs, you still
get a paycheck if you have bad
day. In golf, a bad 10 minutes
- in other words, one hole -
can mean you go home with
nothing, which is why Bone is
grateful to have the backing of a
few local businessmen and the
support of his family.
"It's a job, 100 percent," he
said. "It can be frustrating at
times. You're not going to hit
the ball perfect every time you
go out, but you're just trying to
continually build a solid foun-
dation with your swing or your
short game ... your fundamen-
tals. Once you acquire those,
it's kind of fine-tuning. You
want to get them so fine-tuned
and so second nature that when
you're in a tournament and
there's a lot of pressure, you're
able to just do your normal
thing. Some guys never get that.
"The mental game plays a
larger role as you get to higher
levels. It becomes more and
more mental. I can just about
guess that the PGA Tour is

Along with the bluegill,
many species make up the
bream family. They are wide-
spread, being found in great
numbers in all clean, freshwa-
ter creeks and lakes. No great
expertise is needed to fill a
stringer with these little bat-
tlers as they seldom refuse a
bait dropped anywhere near
them.
Elaborate or expensive
equipment is not needed. A
cheap rod and reel or even a
cane pole with a short line,
bobber and baited hook will
suffice. Bait usually consists of
earth-
worms or
crickets.
I think
the world
record for
bluegills
remains at
S... 4-pounds,
) 12-ounces,
OUTDOORS although
they aver-
Lloyd Jones age from 5
to 9 inches
long and
weigh less than a pound.
Obviously, they sometimes can
and do grow much larger,
depending on their habitat.
Bluegills spawn in the
spring and early summer as the
'weather and the water warm
sufficiently. Millions of fry are
produced yearly in the shallow
areas during this time.
Another well-known mem-
ber of the bream family is the
redear sunfish, nicknamed
"shellcrackers" due to their
ability to crush the shells of
small mollusks and crustaceans
that they feed on. The spawn-
ing season brings out hordes of
anglers seeking out the beds of
these brawny little fighters.
They are a bit more choosy


than the bluegill in their feed-
ing habits and the grass shrimp
is at the top of their menu.
Distinguishing between the
bluegill and the redear sunfish
(shellcracker) is very easy. The
ear tab of the bluegill (the tab-
like edge of the gill cover) is
completely black, or at least
dark in color. The ear tab on a
redear has a bright red or pink-
ish trailing border. Bluegills
also have smaller mouths than
redears.
While the eating qualities of
the bluegill are well known
and for a fish fry they can be a
real treat, I believe as table fare
the shellcracker is superb.
Many other fish are in the
bream family, including
longer sunfish, shadow bass,
pumpkinseed, green sunfish
andthe warmouth.
The longer sunfish is
known to most as the redbelly
The redbelly is appropriately
named, especially the males,
which often have a fire engine-
red belly complimented by an
olive green back with small
spots of yellow. With its darker
green and emerald blue head,

about 95 percent mental. I can
go out and place in a Next Tour
event and have a couple of
boneheaded mistakes on the
course, but when I get to the
Hooters Tour, I'm going to have
to go out and play three or four
solid rounds to make a check."
Playing for the Blue Streaks
or in the Sertoma Junior Golf
Tour as a teenager, Bone didn't
have to work on his game to be
successful. His natural ability
got him by. These days, howev-
er, work on his game is just
about all he does.
"How much work I've put
into my game has just steadily


this fish is truly a work of art.
The shadow bass, a lesser-
known member of the bream
family, is colored more like a
crappie. They have large
bulging eyes, hence the nick-
name, "goggle-eyes".
Measuring 6 to 8 inches long,
they give a good accounting of
themselves when taken on light
tackle.
All of our lakes and streams
support bream. Arbuckle Creek
has bluegills and shellcrackers
in abundance and Fisheating
Creek is one of the premier
bream-fishing streams in our
area.
Fish from both of these
streams are very dark in color
due to the tannic waters.
So don't let the bass not
feeding ruin your day. Take
along a tub of crickets or a can
of worms and catch yourself a
stringer of these beautiful little
panfish. Aside from saving the
day, you can enjoy a gourmet's
delight for dinner.

increased," he said. "I spend
probably eight hours a day (at
the course). It's a long process
of learning how to work at your
game."
And that process is just real-
ly getting started for Bone. But
he said he's willing to put in
whatever e6ffdrt it thkes.'
"I've always had a feeling
that I could make it to the
(PGA) Tour if I put the work
into it. I don't have any doubts
about my natural ability," he
said. "You know there's people
out there saying, 'He's never
going to make it,' but if every-
one listened to those people,
nobody would ever do any-
thing."
Bone equates making it to
the PGA Tour to climbing a
mountain. If you keep your
focus on the summit, and don't
look down, you can make it to
the top.
"If you sit back and look at
how hard it is to get there,
you'll just stop, but if you just
put your head down and prac-
tice and keep working hard,
before you know it, you'll get
there. You just look at what's in
front of you."

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop

A dual waiting

arrangement
The birds scrounged
around the bird feeders,
finding stray seeds.
Though the feeders were
almost empty, these hungry
creatures came expectantly,
reminding me of my part of
the bargain. They'd enter-
tain me with their antics and
showy colors. All I had to
do was feed them.
"I know, I know," I'd say
to them. I haven't forgot-
ten."
But, between getting
ready to go away and the
busyness of a hectic sched-
ule, buying bird seed was a
low priority, even though I
felt badly about it. After
about a week, I finally
bought the seed.
"Do you think the birds
are still checking?" I asked
my husband, Ken.
"I hope they come back."
"They always do," he
said. "Just give them a little
time."
Sure enough, one, then
two little finches appeared.
Before I knew it, many of
these tiny visitors had found
their way back, along with
several other varieties.
They waited for me.
Then I waited for them. A
dual waiting arrangement.
I thought of this as I
came across this Scripture
one morning.
S"And therefore will the
Lord wait, that he may be
gracious unto you blessed
are all they that wait for
him." (Isaiah 30: 18)
Waiting is a hard thing to
do. However, when we
think of waiting in the posi-
tive way it is presented
here, it's a whole other
story. It reminds me of
years ago when I was a sin-
gle mom hoping the Lord,
might have a mate for me. I
prayed and waited.
I couldn't see it at the
time, but God waited also.
He waited to be gracious to
me, but I first had some
growing to do in faith,
character and willingness to
yield my heart's desire to
him.
When God knew I was
ready, he graciously intro-
duced me to his provision
for me; my husband.
Today is Pentecost, the
day that commemorates
when the gift of the Holy,
Spirit was first given to the
Apostles and then all
believers.
Jesus hal died and risen
again. Before he ascended
into heaven, he promised he
would send the Comforter,
the Holy Spirit, to indwell
believers.
His promise was depend-
able, but the provision did-
n't happen immediately.
Jesus had instructed them
not to leave Jerusalem; to
wait for the gift poised.
As the apostles waited, so
did the Lord for the right
time for them to receive
such an empowering gift.
Fifty days after the
Passover, when they were
all together in one place, the
Holy Spirit descended.
Though waiting is never
easy, trusting God who sees
the end from the beginning
means the waiting is for my
benefit and his glory. He
waits for the right time to
fulfill his plan for me, while
I, in turn, wait on him.
That's quite a combina-
tion a dual waiting
arrangement that can't be
beat. Selah.

Veteranarians practice shooting blowguns during VMAT training at
Peace River Refuge & Ranch in Zolfo Springs. Animals are immobi-
lized by darts from a safe distance.


All large animals are blindfolded when immobilized to
reduce stress. They are not completely unconscious. Ashley
Kershner, of Peace River Refuge & Ranch, sits on the tail-
gate to accompany Blizzard, a white tiger, to the field hospi-
tal during VMAT training at the refuge.

miles east of
Zolfo Springs, was
selected as a training site
for members of the
Veterinary Medical
Assistance Teams
which provide emer-

mobile units that can
deploy within 24 to 48
hours after their assistance
is requested by state offi-

Lisa Stoner, who owns and
manages the ranch along with
her husband, Kurt.
Teams also carry their own
supplies of food, water, per-

medical supplies and equip-

Lisa said that members of
the public are not allowed

this training for safety
reasons except for one
press session featur-

smaller animals.
"Team members
must learn how to

This year, the exercise is in jeopardy because of
severe federal budget cuts. Formerly, the American
Veterinary Medical Foundation and VMAT sponsored
the training, but once it was placed under Homeland
Security, private funds could no longer be used.
"We are trying to restore that relationship so AVMF
and VMAT can once again sponsor these field exercis-

our efforts through the Just
Read, Florida! initiative, we are
seeing results."
For the first time, using the
National Assessment of
Educational Progress, Florida's
fourth grade students were the
only group in the nation to
show significant gain in read-
ing.
Florida students surpassed
the national average in fourth
grade reading. The Reading
FIRST program (Just Read,
Florida) is considered to be a
factor in that success since it
has been serving many Florida
kindergarten through grade
three students since 2003.
During year one of the grant,
funds are provided to hire a
reading coach, who will
demonstrate the latest model
lessons to staff and train them
in the latest research findings.
Additional funds are avail-
able to pay teachers a stipend
for summer training at the
Heartland Consortium Reading
Academy sponsored by the
Florida Department of
Education.
Funds may also be used to
provide classroom materials to
supplement the basic reading'
program. The materials must
develop a classroom library to
expose students to rich reading
opportunities.
Students are taught to read
using the latest scientifically
based reading research support-
ing the five components of a
reading program as coordinated


by Dr. Joe Torgeson of the
Florida Center for Reading
Research at Florida State
University in Tallahassee.
Students are tested multiple
times a year on the components
of reading using DIBELS, a
standardized test. Using obser-
vation data and testing results,
the teacher provides instruction
and arranges for intensive assis-
tance for struggling readers.
Officers from the
Department of Education, the
Florida Center for Reading
Research and university profes-
sors reviewed the applications
for the Reading FIRST grants.
Applications were evaluated
based on rigorous criteria and
had to receive at least an 80 per-
cent in 12 evaluation categories
to qualify for a grant.
The Reading FIRST awards
were also highly competitive
against other districts.
The local program was
developed by Joyce
McClelland, Dr. Anne Lindsay,
Park Elementary school princi-
pal Pat Landress, and Lake
Country Elementary School
and principal Dr. Majel
Bowerman as well as Mary
Hurly and South Elementary
School principal Debbie Lundy
of Okeechobee, Dr. Kathy
Oropallo, formerly of the
University of South Florida and

Various methods can be used to control mistletoe


Pruning is usually
the most effective
way to stop the
spread of this
parasite
Second .in a two-part
series
The most effective way to
control mistletoe and prevent its
spread is to prune out infected
branches as soon as you see the
parasitic plant.
Using thinning-type pruning
cuts, remove infected branches
at their point of origin or back
to large lateral branches.
Infected branches need to be
cut at least one foot below the
point of mistletoe attachment in
order to completely remove


embedded haustoria.
Done properly, limb removal
for mistletoe control can main-
tain or even improve tree struc-
ture. Severe heading is often
used to remove heavy tree
infestations; however, such
pruning weaken a tree's struc-
ture, and destroys its natural
form.
In some cases it is best to
remove severely infested trees
entirely because they are usual-
ly a source of mistletoe seed.
If mistletoe is infecting a
major branch or the trunk -
where pruning the tree is not
possible then cut off the
mistletoe flush with the limb or
trunk.
Wrap the area with a few lay-
ers of wide, black polyethylene


to exclude light. Use
twine or tape to -
secure the plastic to
the limb, but do not 0.
wrap it too tightly or
the branch may be
damaged.
In some tree
species callus tissue
will form under the
plastic, further weak- GRO
ening the limb. Q
Broadleaf mistletoe Sw
requires light and
will die within a cou- High
pie of years without County
it. It may be neces- Garc
sary to repeat this
treatment, especially if the
wrapping becomes detached or
if the mistletoe does not die.
Cutting the mistletoe out of
an infested tree each winter,

even without wrap-
ping, is better than
doing nothing at all.
Even though the para-
site will grow back,
spread is reduced
because broadleaf
mistletoe mist be sev-
*2. eral years old before
it can bloom and pro-
ING duce seed.
Long before, kissing
ON under the mistletoe
- became a popular
inds Christmas custom,
faster many myths already
rers surrounded this myste-
" rious fungus.
The Druids thought mistletoe
was sacred because it grew
without roots in the ground.
Because of this, they assumed
that it must have been planted


by the gods.
European farmer claimed
milk didn't sour as quickly
around mistletoe and that butter
churned more easily. Thus,
every farm had sprigs of mistle-
toe hanging in their cattle sheds.
Several legends state that a
kiss under the mistletoe,
exchanged by a couple in love,
is a promise to marry.
One custom allows a boy to
kiss a girl under the mistletoe as
long as he picks one berry each
time he kisses her. When the
berries were gone, then the kiss-
ing came to end.
However, the custom of kiss-
ing under the mistletoe came to
be, it seems to be a very popular
one that will probably be
around for some time to come.
A mistletoe plant usually


lives for eight to ten years. The
longer the mistletoe is attached,
the more the host tree weaken
and declines in health.

South Central Florida


MOAA publication


wins national award


The South Central
Florida Chapter of the
Military Officers
Association has won
an award for its
"Heartlander" publi-
cation.
When the national
MOAA presented its
Communication


WHITTON


Awards for 2004, the local
chapter's publication was rec-
ognized as number one in the
category for chapters with 75-
199 members.
"Heartlander" is edited and
published by Roy Whitton, a
retired U.S. Air Force colonel
from Lake Placid. Whitton
accepted the award at the
MOAA Council of Chapters
Convention held in Palm
Beach Gardens from April 28-
30.
Chapters from all over the
county submitted publications
for the contest.
The South Central MOAA
Chapter has been actively
involved with many events
since September.
It provided support and
assistance to four high school
Junior ROTC programs in
Avon Park and Sebring and in
DeSoto and Okeechobee
counties. It is anticipating that
JROTC programs will form in
Lake Placid and Hardee
County high schools during
the upcoming school year. It


has also provided sup-
port to the area's Civil
Air Patrol and Sea
Cadet units.
The chapter hosted
meetings, presenta-
tions and briefings
with distinguished
speakers. Among them
were MOAA national


president Norb Ryan, Colonel
James Tyre, the operations
and mobilization officer for
the Florida Army National
Guard, and David Lanham a
highly decorated officer who
served two tours of duty in
Afghanistan.
The chapter sponsored a
military veterans health fair
for area veterans and families
in Sebring and an outreach
seminar in Okeechobee to
provide military benefits
information.
It provided speakers and
presenters at military events
and ceremonies. This entailed
working with other military
and veterans organizations in
the area.
The chapter will conduct a
joint meeting with the Air
Force Association at the Avon
Park Air Force Bombing
Range on Saturday, May 21.
A naval flag officer is
scheduled to speak about the
importance of training mili-
tary forces under realistic con-
ditions provided at the range.

SFCC's DeSoto Campus

features exhibit of art

produced in Mexico


Paintings of Las
Artistas de La
Sierra Alta will be
on display through
May 31
ARCADIA An exhibit of
art from the high plains of
Puebla, Mexico, is being dis-
played at South Florida
Community College DeSoto
Campus through Tuesday, May
31.
The exhibit features the
works of Las Artistas de La
Sierra Alta, which means "The
Artists of the High Sierra."
Led by Llewellyn Rinald, the
artists spend their working lives
as ranchers, veterinarians,
shopkeepers and teachers.
They paint the environment and
the surroundings that affect


their daily lives and transmit an
understanding of their unique
environment, the high plains.
This group of artists is part of
Teziutlan Arte y Mas (Art and
More), who mount a new exhi-
bition every three months in
Teziutlan. The group maintains
an active gallery, which
includes a workshop for draw-
ing and painting classes. Their
work was recently on display in
the SFCC Museum of Florida
Art and Culture.
Rinald is a Lake Placid resi-
dent who also owns a home in

Teziutlan, Puebla, Mexico.
While in Mexico, she exhibits
with the Arte y Mas and travels
extensively in the region paint-
ing and drawing.
For more information, call
the SFCC DeSoto Campus at
(863) 773-2252.
