L aVerne Seaman has enough stuffed
teddy bears to choke an elephant, so
she gave them away to a local chil-
dren's shelter most of them, any-
way.
"I was born with a kid heart and I'll die with
a kid heart," said the spry 83-year-old Seaman,
during a break from playing Kings on the
.Corner with friend and caretaker Ina Perry.
On Thursday, Kirsten Mamer, Children's
Home Society director of program operations,
accepted four trunk-sized boxes of stuffed ani-
mals from Seaman.

Three sisters, two of them
pregnant, and their husbands
plus three children are sharing a
three-bedroom apartment in
Avon Park.
Rendered homeless. after a
seven-alarm fire destroyed their
apartments in DeSoto City late
Monday night, the three fami-
lies received help last week
from several charities including
the American Red Cross and a
Sebring attorney.
Alison Copley was vacation-
ing in Colorado when she called
her receptionist Edna Linares.
"Can you please meet with
them?" Copley asked Linares,
Linares said during a shopping
spree with two of the women at
Wal-Mart.
Copley gave her a budget and
on Friday Linares met with
Lupe Gonzalez and her daugh-
ter Brenda Ignaco, 4, and with

dren, Adolfo, 3, and Esmerlda

"Everything I see that a kid would want, I get
it," she said.
From all of the huggable and lovable toys she
gave away, Seaman saved a few bears and a
Mickey Mouse which were closest to her heart
those given to her by'close family and
friends.
Dolls have come a long way, she said, recall-
ing her earliest prized possessions.
"Some you could bend them over and they'd
cry out, but you'd get no more out of them,"
Seaman said, comparing the old dolls to the few
remaining on her once covered-over couch.

board picks



new resident



for supervisor

By PHIL ATTlNGER
News-Sun
'SEBRING Sun 'N Lake of Sebring supervisors have cho-
sen Joely Polokoff-Collard, a guidance counselor in Hardee
County, to fill the vacant supervisor seat.
A resident for a year and a half, she was chosen over Dave
Halbig, a- four-year full-time resident and 10-year property
owner, and Robert L. Campbell, who recently arrived from
California with his wife.
Campbell and Halbig were present at Friday's meeting:
Collard was not able to attend but sent a letter to General
Manager Marvin Fischer to be read on her behalf.
Supervisor John Negley liked that Collard lives in int 2,
which has had a, lot of issues needing to be addressed. Robert
Severino, board president, liked that she might bring a fresh
perspective.
"She brings something new to the board," Severino said.
"She doesn't have a whole lot of 'baggage,' if you will."
In her letter, she said she and her husband just bought a
home in Sun 'N Lake and she wants to help keep the area beau-
tiful. She plans to listen and get acquainted with the board and
its policies first before bringing in new ideas.
Collard said has been a guidance counselor for six years and
worked marketing for five years. She works full-time and may
not always be able to make a 9 a.m. meeting, but believes she
can take personal time to do that.
Supervisor John Clark did not understand how she could
spend the time required of a supervisor, despite her good inten-
tions.
Residents at the meeting didn't like having a supervisor \x ho
has only recently bought property in the district, has not been
to a supervisors meeting including Friday's and works
full-rime.
Others pointed to her lack of business experience. Halbig
worked 43 years with Moll Industries, starting as a tool and die
maker and working his way up to senior vice president of oper-
ations and technology, working the last three years as a. con-
sultant on special projects.
Campbell had military experience, starting in the United
States Air Force in 1946 in law enforcement and security. He
later provided security in the private sector; worked as an asso-
ciate dean at the Army and Navy Academy in Carlsbad, Calif.;
and formed private businesses after that.
Larry Stange, president of the Sun 'N Lake Property Owners
Association, said hewould feel more at ease with someone
who's been in the district a bit longer and has already been
active in the meetings and the community.
It takes a while, he said, for longtime residents to get to
know the workings of the board, even when they have been
active in the district.
After the vote, he left the meeting.
Kay Ann Rice said Fischer's old seat is a popularly-elected
See BOARD, page 11A


Lupe Gonzalez said she was
about to go to bed around 11
p.m. Monday when she started
hearing "crackling" noises from
beneath the floor.
Looking outside, she saw the
fire.
Highlands County
Emergency Management
Director Bill Nichols told the
News-Sun, "There was not a
square inch not on fire."
The families lost everything,
including two of four vehicles.
Three men unrelated to the
Gonzalez sisters also lived at
the apartment building in
DeSoto City. They couldn't be
reached by press time.
"Alison is big-hearted when
it comes to children," Linares
said of family law attorney.
"Working in the court system
with children has been a bless-
ing for her."
Linares said each child was
allowed to pick three toys for
Christmas presents.
"It's wonderful to do all of
this," she said. "Alison is the
key, but just to do this for her is
wonderful."

Nine more teachers certified by national board


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY to students and their learning;
News-Sun teachers know the subjects they
SEBRING Nine more -teach and how to teach those


Highlands County teachers
have joined the growing ranks
of national board certified
teachers. That means the district
now has 26 teachers who have
accomplished the demanding
process.
The National Board for
Professional Teaching
Standards is an independent,
nonprofit, nonpartisan organi-
zation governed by a board of
directors. That board is made up
mostly of teachers, but also
school administrators and gov-
ernment, community and edu-.
cational leaders, all from all
over the country.
Teachers who apply for
national certification have to
create a portfolio of work which
includes videotaped lessons,
student work and teacher
assessment of that work, as well
as self-evaluation. They also sit
for a three hour examination
geared to their teaching special-
ty, which tests their subject
knowledge.
The primary difference
between the national board cer-
tification and state certifications
is that state licensing sets entry
level standards for new teach-
ers, while the national board
establishes advanced standards
for experienced teachers.
A candidate has to have
taught three years before even
being eligible for the certifica-
tion process.
That process takes at least
seven months, and has to be
completed within three years.
Most candidates complete it in
about two years.
Lynn Cloud teaches culinary
arts at Avon Park High School
and is one of the nine nationally
certified teachers.
.She estimates she spent
between 200 and 300 hours
working on the portfolio which
constitutes the bulk of the certi-
fication process.
The certification is only valid
for 10 years. After that, a
tachey,.rmuut iippl for r.-certti-
ticafonr. -' "" -' *. '
*"r'.3c..6rdirg,. f Veb siire:' th
national board bases its certifi-
cations on five core proposi-
tions: "Teachers are committed


subjects 'to students; teachers
are responsible for managing
and monitoring student learn-
ing; teachers think systemati-
cally about their practice and
learn from experience; and
teachers are members of learn-
ing communities."
Tracy Robinson, who teaches
science at Lake Placid Middle
School, is another of the nine
teachers who just earned the
prestigious recognition.
"It's a rigorous project,"
Robinson said. "You are exam-
ining your own teaching style
:and habits, trying to make sure
everything you do goes back to
student gains and student learn-
ing."
There is a written, timed
examination.
Cloud described how the
candidates sat at computer ter-
minals in little cubicles and
answered essay questions
which tested their knowledge of
subject matter.
The question would appear
on the screen for exactly thirty
minutes. Then that question and
answer would disappear and the
next question materialize.
Cloud added the questions
alone took eight minutes to
read.
The teachers were not
jammed elbow to elbow, Cloud
said, but the room was crowded
and the sound of clacking key-
boards was loud, even distract-
ing. That is why ear plugs are
allowed when taking the test.
The portfolio portion is
divided into parts, all of which
are designed to prove mastery
of skills and an understanding
of the self as a part of the
process. That is because teach-
ing is interactive. Assessment
scores only demonstrate part of
the teaching equation. Seeing
the teacher and student work
together, is the only way to
wholly assess how well the
teacher teaches.
That means concrete evi-
dence is-a must. For example, a
video- tape :of the candildlte
Sactually'clearingup a misund~r-.
standing.
But the video tapes cannot be
cut and pasted. They must run

in 15 minute portions. They
cannot be edited.
The challenge, Cloud said,
was in creating lesson plans that
created the most teaching
moments in 15 minute sessions.
The national board holds
workshops to provide guidance,
but the main source of support
comes from mentors. Those are
teachers who are already
national board certified. Both
Cloud and Robinson plan on
mentoring.
"I think it's a good process,"
Cloud said, "but it takes a lot of
thought and persistence."
"It's a very intense, but very
rewarding experience,"
Robinson said. "You're basical-
ly on' your own, but it's defi-
nitely worth the effort."
Gaining national board certi-
fication is as expensive as it is
difficult. It costs $2,300.
The state of Florida has cre-
ated the Dale Hickam
Excellence Program to defray
thosecosts. After registering for
the certification process on-
line, a candidate can sign a
promissory note and the state
11 will'pay 90 percent of the cost
upon successful ,completion.
The candidate pays the balance.
The Hickam program is
designed to keep teachers in the


classroom. If a national board
teacher stops teaching before he
or she has taught out their certi-
fication (i.e. taught 10 years),
even if they stay in the school
system as an administrator, they
have to reimburse to the pro-
gram whatever money the pro-
gram has paid.
With 7,736 national board
certified teachers, Florida cur-
rently has more national board
certified teachers than any other
state excepting North Carolina.
According to Lisa Garrison
of the district personnel office,
national board certified teachers
each receive an annual bonus,
paid at the start of the school
year, equaling 10 percent of an
average teacher salary. If they
participate in a teacher mentor-
ing program, they receive
another such bonus at the end of
the school year.

certified teachers are:

SEBRING Mobile home
parks make up one of,the most
common developments in
Highlands County, but they are
disappearing.
Growth and increased prop-
erty values have prompted
landowners to rezone mobile
home parks for other types of
development condomini-
ums, apartments, offices or
retail. The residents own their
mobile homes, but not the lots,
so they must move.
Many can't. Retirees on
fixed incomes don't have the
money to move a mobile home,
but even if they could, most
mobile home parks won't
accept them. The homes are too
old and don't fit the aesthetic of
newer parks.
They could move into the


new residential development,
but often the rents are too high
for anyone on a fixed income.
The Federation of
Manufactured Home Owners
may have found some relief.
The Florida Legislature is con-
sidering Senate Bill 984 to pro-
vide funds to relocate senior cit-
izens when their mobile home
parks get redeveloped.
Lee Atkins, local representa-
tive for the federation, asked
the county commission to lobby
in favor of the bill in
Tallahassee. Essentially, the bill
would authorize local govern-
ment to use housing loan assis-
tance programs, tax increment
financing, urban infill funding
and other redevelopment funds
for relocation:
Don Hazelton, federation
president, has said in press
releases that it's only fair to ask


local government to use some
of its expected property tax
increases from commercial or
higher-cost residences to pay
for getting the displaced people
new homes.
County Commissioner Bob
Bullard said this kind of help is
certainly needed. Viking
Village in Lake Placid, for
example, was one example
where residents either did not
have adequate warning or fund-
ing to relocate.
The developer wanted to
build condominiums, but resi-
dents had no means to leave.
Similar situations have exist-
ed more and more frequently
over the last six years as more
coastal residents have looked at
making Highlands County a
permanent address and not just
a weekend getaway.

Mother


and three


teens left


homeless


after fire

Arson suspected
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING As Tammy
Wilcox watched firefighters try
to save her home, the single-
mother of three and restaurant
manager expressed two con-
cerns how to tell her children
and where to hold the
Christmas party.
Wilcox, who was ,at work
Friday morning, received a call
from her neighbor, who told her
that her residence was on fire.
The neighbor reported the
fire at 8:29 a.m.
Elbert "Biki" Jackson III,
drove Wilcox from work to her
home, where she watched the
effort as tears welled in her
eyes.
"What am I going to tell the
kids?" she asked DeeDee
Randall, a friend and co-work-
er. "Everything they have is in
there."
Her children, who are 12, 14,
and 15 years old, were at
school.
Jackson, who was among at
least three co-workers provid-
ing moral support to Wilcox,
said the International House of
Pancake crew is family as much
as employees.
"We'll help her," Jackson
said. "She and her family will
have a place to stay. This is
sad."


OBITUARIES


KEVIN J. SHUTT/News-Sun
A volunteer fire captain enters a home on Bristol Street in Sebring
during a Friday fire, which investigators later would deem suspi-
cious.


Wilcox, who rents from Bill
Lees, has lived at 3208 Bristol
St. about 1 1/2 years.
Lees arrived at his property, a
few minutes after the first
engine Q-7 from Sun 'N'
Lake Volunteer Fire
Department around 8:45 a.m.,
providing the firefighters with
keys so they wouldn't have to
force entry.
"It looks like they're back in
the kitchen area," Lees said, as
he tried to determine where the
fire occurred. "This is terrible."
Flames weren't visible from
the street but smoke poured
from the attic eaves, increasing
after the front door was opened.
Detective Eugene Walker, of
the state fire marshal's office,
suspects arson, he said Friday


afternoon.
Because foul play is suspect-
ed, Walker wouldn't disclose
details as to where the fire was
or whether an accelerant was
used.
The fire caused $40,000 in
property and content damage,
mostly from smoke and heat,
Walker said.
Randall said anybody wish-
ing to donate basic necessities
could contact her at 382-8870
or 382-8165.
Randall said Wilcox was to
host the employee party
Tuesday and another one
Thursday for their children.
"I guess there's not going to
be a Christmas party Tuesday,"
Wilcox said.


Edward Burke
Edward J. Burke,
72, of Sebring, died
Dec. 16, 2005, in
Sebring.
Born in San Francisco, he
had been a resident of Sebring
since 2000, coming from
Peabody, Mass.
He was a building superin-
tendent. He served in the
United States Army during the

Traffic stop turns into drug trafficking arrest


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK A simple
traffic stop turned into a traf-
ficking arrest on Tuesday after-
noon.
When it was done, Highlands
County sheriff's deputies had
charged three men with drug
possession charges, including
one charged with trafficking
methamphetamine.
Andre Pablo
Alvarado, 18,
of Avon Park,
faces traffick-
ing of metham-
phetamine, the
possession of
the drug with
ALVARADO intent to sell or
deliver, and
possession of drug parapherna-
lia. Bond is set at $30,500..
Also in the
car with him
was Terry Lee
W Light, 22, of
Avon Park,
charged with
possession of
both metham-
LIGHT phetamine and
drug parapher-
nalia. His bond was $1,500. The
driver, James Austin Rimer, 24,
was charged
with posses-"
Ssion of
cannabis and
drug parapher-
nalia, and with
I possession of
ammunition by
RIMER
a convicted
felon. His bond is $6,000.
While patrolling, at 1 p.m.
Dec. 13, on Sabal Palm Avenue
in Sebring, a deputy stopped a
teal Mercury that didn't have its
license tag displayed. Rimer
told the deputy he had a tempo-
rary tag for it, but didn't know
what happened to it.
He had paperwork showing
the car had been bought on Oct.
10, 2005. The temporary tag
had expired on Nov. 10 and he
said he hadn't gone to register
the car.
The deputy arrested him for
failure to register a motor vehi-
cle. While searching him, the

deputy found a cellophane ciga-
rette wrapper containing a
green leafy substance that field-
tested positive for cannabis. It
weighed 0.9 grams.'
When the deputy first
stopped the car, he noticed that
Light, in the front seat, and
Alvarado, in the back, were
restless. According to arrest
reports, they were moving
around as if placing items on
the floor or under the seats.
After searching the car,
another deputy found a
Marlboro cigarette pack con-
taining a partially-smoked
cannabis cigarette on the center
console. A black T-shirt pushed
partially under the front passen-
ger seat turned out to be
wrapped around a clear plastic
container that held a clear crys-
talline substance, arrest reports
said.
The substance field-tested
positive for methamphetamine,
reports said.
Deputies also found a plastic
medial syringe in the shirt. It
had a clear liquid in it that also
tested positive for methamphet-


amine, reports said.
By the front passenger seat,
next to the door, a deputy found
a bent metal spoon, and on the,
front passenger floorboard,
three .22-caliber long rifle bul-
lets.
When the deputy found the
bullets, he asked Rimer if he
was a convicted felon.
According to arrest reports,
Rimer answered yes and said
the bullets belonged to his
uncle, allegedly without being
able to see the ammunition.
In the rear floorboard, a
deputy found a clear plastic bag
covered by a work glove. In the
bag was about 30 grams of the
same crystalline substance,
reports said.
In the driver's side floor-
board, reports said deputies
found a a pack of French Light
cigarette papers, similar to the
one on the cannabis cigarette.
Once at the Highlands
County Jail, Alvarado allegedly
told a deputy that the metham-
phetamine was his alone, and
the other two were not involved
with it.


Investigators with the
Criminal Investigations
Division immediately inter-
viewed Alvarado, who alleged-
ly repeated that the metham-
phetamine was his alone, which
he intended to sell to make
money. He allegedly didn't
know about any other drugs.
When interviewed, Rimer
,allegedly said the cannabis in
his pocket was his and he didn't
know anything about any other
drugs or who owned the black
T-shirt.
Light did not want to talk
without having a lawyer pres-
ent.

Supervisors

approve new

contract

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING With a unani-
mous vote Friday. the Sun 'N
Lake of Sebring Board of
Supervisors approved a new
contract with Severn Trent
Services Inc.
One of the biggest changes
has been to hire Marvin
Fischer, former supervisor, as
general manager. That was
approved in November. His
contract will pay $87,500, but
that does not include the 401K
retirement account or health
insurance.
As part of the contract,
Severn Trent will keep staff on
hand for the district's business
hours 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
- to assist residents, other
staff members and supervisors.
One of the major complaints
was that Severn Trent didn't
have staff on hand when need-
ed.
Having Fischer as general
manager will solve some of
that. Also, supervisors hope
this new contract will remove
some of the distinctions
between district employees and
Severe Trent staff so the town
hall will work more cohesively.
"We need to avoid any 'us-
them' syndrome," Supervisor
John Clark said.
He saw this as extremely
important to improve and
maintain morale for the staff.
One contract change will
allow Severn Trent to go ahead
and make repairs to damaged
infrastructure with in-house
staff, without having to get bids
from .outside contractors. That
way, Severn Trent can handle
emergency repairs when need-
ed.
Bids can still be gathered to
make sure Severn Trent's
billing for service is fair, but
repairs could be made faster
with Fischer's approval.
Since those emergency deci-
sions are part of Fischer's job,
Clark is glad to have a manager
who lives in the district.
Robert Severino, board pres-
ident, still wants to see an orga-
nizational chart from Fischer,
so staff will know who's in
charge when Fischer is absent.
He asked Fischer to brief the
board members on the chart
and get their individual input in
time for the Jan. 27 regular
meeting.
Supervisors also approved
Fischer's long-term goals for
the district, but Clark said there
should still be a definite time-
line for achieving them. Fischer
said he'd be happy to sit down
with Clark and fine tune the
language to set some deadlines.

Candlelight, golf cart




changes approved


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING People using
the Sun 'N Lake of Sebring
Golf Course will see a couple of
changes starting in January
2006.
First of all, diners at the 19th
Hole who want a more quiet
setting will get their wish.
Kitson & Partners LLC has
agreed to add two staff mem-
bers and seat people in The
Candlelight dining room.
The service will be available
only during the heavy winter
visitor season on Friday and
Saturday nights as long as peo-
ple call the restaurant and make
a reservation. During this sea-
son it will run from January to
April 2006 and start back again
around October.


Resort Manager Ron
Wonderling said it will cost the
operation an extra $750 per
month in labor. The tables will
not have linen service, but it
will be a quieter dining experi-
ence than the more casual 19th
Hole.
Supervisor John Clark said
several people had thought this
service had already started.
Some liked it and others didn't..
Wonderling said he has
advertised- locally for more
help.
Carts.
Supervisors also approved a
request to lease 100 new golf
carts, with option to buy at the
end of the lease.

Severn-Trent to inspect sewer lines for leaks


Whole system to be studied,

Hurricane damage addressed


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Water and
sewer problems in Sun 'N Lake
of Sebring will get some atten-
tion in the coming months.
Sand has gotten into lift sta-
tions at Units 2 and 13, which
need attention right away.
However, with much of the
water and sewer system put in
when the district was first
founded, roughly 30 years ago,
there is concern for how well it
has held up.
Supervisor John Clark had
the impression it was done
cheaply: "We're getting to the
consequences of that."
Hopefully a study of all pipes
will show how well the system
is or isn't working. On Friday,
the supervisors approved a dis-
trict-wide engineering audit,


which will include buildings
along with the water and sewer
systems.
In addition, supervisors
authorized Severn Trent Service
Inc. to repair the lines and lift
stations in Units 2 and 13.
Mike Acosta, engineer with
Severn Trent, said his crews
have already pulled dpen a cou-
ple of manholes -which were
a challenge to find and
inspected the pipe in that area.
He expected to find old clay
pipe but found polyvinyl chlo-
ride pipe. It usually doesn't let
in sand unless it has a major
break or crack. The pipes he
found have not shattered.
Once workers unearth the
pipe, Acosta plans to set off
smoke bombs in the pipe to see
if smoke seeps out and shows
any leaks. If they find any

leaks, he said they will plug
them off.
The biggest problem, Acosta
said, will be getting access
behind houses. Some of the
pipes are in tight residential
areas. If the smoke bombs don't
show leaks, he may want to use
video cables and do a visual
inspection.
Usually, he said, when pipes
let in as much sand as has been
getting in the lift stations, it
leaves a sinkhole on the sur-
face, but there haven't been
any. Acosta suspects sand is
washing in with heavy rainfall.
Hurricane damage
An outside contractor will
come in to clear some blocked
drainage culverts and weirs on
Sun 'N Lake Boulevard west of
Cortez Boulevard. General
Manager Marvin Fischer said
hurricane damage has the
drainage system clogged. It will
flood in heavy rain if they don't
get cleaned out and repaired.


He'll get a request for pro-
posals put together and ask for
bids on the work.
Clark was worried this would
be a "budget buster." Fischer
said he'll pull money out of the
emergency contingency funds
to handle it.


sary prompted further look into
the need. Clark said that study
not only showed it was feasible
but very necessary.
Clark noted, however, that
the district has already spent
$144,000 to upgrade the opera-
tion.
"Let's be careful where we
get the funds for this," he said.
General Manager Marvin
Fischer said the new analysis
has shown him that Kitson &
Partners is going in the right
direction.
Supervisor John Negley said
it was important, now that
Kitson & Partners has made the
golf operation more efficient,
that the supervisors continue to
give them the tools they need to
make the operation work.
When asked whether the
carts had hub odometers to help
tell when the carts will need
service, Wonderling said the
carts didn't but could be gauged
by battery life and the number
of hours they have been in oper-
ation.
If needed, he said, Kitson &
Partners can add odometers to
the carts later for a relatively
low cost.

Recycling Plastic in,



but glass is still out


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING Vocational
Rehabilitation, an agency of the
Florida Department of
Education, not only provides
services needed for obtaining
and maintaining emplloyment to
Floridian.s ail disabilities, .but
- now. through volunteerism,
""offers individuals an opportuni-
ty to receive clerical training,
develop office skills, and
acquire experience to add to
resumes along with a letter of
recommendation.
Jose Laina, vocational reha-
bilitation unit supervisor, is
now recruiting volunteers to
work in their Sebring office.
"Basically," he said, "they
will be performing light clerical
work such as answering the
phone, taking messages, filing,
making copies and things like
that."
This would give young
adults in the community experi-
ence and training, possibly
opening windows of opportuni-
ty to them as they start out in
the workforce that they other-
wise wouldn't have. It also
offers individuals who may
have been removed from the
workforce for an extended peri-
od of time, such as homemakers
and senior citizens, desiring to
re-enter the job market a better
opportunity as well.
"A lot of times people get
stuck in a daily rut and getting
out and interacting with other
people can be a real ego boost-
er," Laina said. "Doing some-
thing productive and socializ-


ing outside the home can also'
help prevent depression by pre-
occupying people with other
things, keeping their minds off
of their problems."
Laina understands that doing
something new and unfamiliar
may be intimidating and that
various concerns may dissuade,
people from volunteering. For
people with concerns he said
that no one interested should let
anything prevent them from


pursuing the opportunity.
"There is no experience
required," he said, "We will
train them in everything they
need to know. If they don't have
the proper clothing, that is noth-
ing to worry about either we
have resources to provide that."
The. center is ppen NMln;da.l
through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m., which allows people to
work flexible days and hours.
Call Jose Laina at 386-6077.

News-Sun
SEBRING Local resi-
dents hoping to recycle glass
containers in the near future
will have to wait.
While the Highlands County
Recycling Program has been
able to put plastic containers
back on the list, starting in
January, but glass is still too
expensive to recycle locally.
Christy Reed, recycling pro-
gram manager, told the
Highlands County
Homeowners Association on
Monday that glass has several
problems. Most important, the
county doesn't get enough
financial return to make all the
effort worthwhile.
The county can only recycle
glass containers. Work release
jail inmates sort the glass by
color but the county has extra
liability because the material is
dangerous. Companies can
refuse a load of glass for any
reason, such as the wrong kind
of glass in the load.
Reed said they would often
send a truck load, by color, to
Manatee County and receive a
refund check for only $168 in
about nine months. Plastic, for
now, has a market, she said.
It's always a commodity
where the price goes up and
down, Solid Waste
Management Director Ken
Wheeler said. Recycling plastic
liquid containers should help
preserve space in the landfill.
Plastic has shape memory. It
can be compressed, but it will
pop back into shape as soon as
the pressure is relieved. Glass,
on the other hand, breaks into
smaller pieces.
Vaughan 'Whitesides of
Buttonwood Bay asked if the
county landfill could crush the
glass for road material, the way
it crushes concrete and brick.
That's one option, Wheeler
said.
Residents also asked about a
deposit, but Wheeler said that's


a Florida
Legislature -
decision.
When he .
had a farm
in upstate
New York,
Wheeler
recalled ld
running WHEELER
over bottles
several
times while mowing the
frontage of his property, despite
the state having a nickel
deposit.
He thinks 25 cents per bottle
will ensure a better return.
Education will be a big help,
he said. A lot of people don't
recycle what they can. The
county deploys white bins for
cardboard, magazines, steel and
aluminum. Some will be refit-


ted for plastic containers.
Phone book recycling is done
each winter season through the
county by Sprint. Newspaper
Dumpsters are available, but do
not accept mail, magazines, cat-
alogues, plastic, string, tape,
wire, bags, boxes, or phone
books.
Right now, the county does
not have curbside or on-
demand-pickup recycling.
Doing that would add to the
cost of the county's contract
with solid waste haulers.
However, Wheeler said, if peo-
ple want it, he could- see if it
would be worthwhile.
When asked by one older
lady about making 'recycling
Dumpsters easier to open,
Wheeler said he could look into
that.

Help for the veterans


-~ I __

The Knights of Columbus is once again providing a collection of gifts to area veterans. Fourth
Degree leader, Sir Knight, Michael Bastile (left) and Sir Knight Andy Mish recently loaded a van
full of items frqm members and bingo players who support the Veterans Services with men's and
ladies' items, as well as books, tapes and CDs, socks and money. The bingo proceeds were used to
buy phone cards that allow the veterans to 'phone loved ones over the Christmas season.'


What is a VA burial allowance?


A Veterans Administration
burial allowance is a partial
reimbursement of an eligible
veteran's burial and funeral
costs. When the cause of death
is not service-related, the reim-
bursement is generally
described as two payments: (1)
a burial and funeral expense
allowance and (2) a plot inter-
ment allowance.
Who is eligible? You may be
eligible for a VA burial
allowance if:
you paid for a veteran's
burial or funeral and
you have not been reim-
bursed by another government
agency or some other source
such as the deceased veteran's
employer and
the veteran was discharged
under conditions other than dis-
honorable.
In addition, at least one of the
following conditions must be
met:
the veteran died because of
a service-related disability or
U the veteran was receiving


VA pension or compensation at
the time of death or
the veteran,was entitled to
receive VA pension or compen-
sation but decided not to reduce
his/her military retirement of
disability pay or
the veteran died in a VA
hospital, or while in a nursing
hope under VA contract, or
while in an approved state nurs-
ing home.
How much does VA pay for
service-related death? VA will
pay up to $1,500 toward the
burial expense for deaths prior
to Sept. 10, 2001. For deaths on
or after Sept. 11, 2001, VA will
pay $2,000. If the veteran is
buried in a VA national ceme-
tery, some or all of the cost of
moving the deceased may be
reimbursed.
Nonservice-related death?
VA will pay up to $300 toward
burial and funeral expenses and
a $150 plot interment
allowance for deaths prior to
Dec. 1, 2001. The plot-inter-
"ment allowance is $300 for


deaths on or after Dec. 1, 2001.
If the death happens while the
veteran was in a VA hospital or
under contracted nursing
home's care, some of all the
costs for transporting the
deceased's remains may be
reimbursed.
How can you apply? You can
apply by filling out VA form
21-530. Application for Burial
Allowance. You should attach
proof of the veteran's military
service (DD 214), a death cer-
tificate and copies of funeral
and burial bills you have paid.
Related benefits: Burial in
VA National Cemeteries, presi-
dential memorial certificates,
headstones and markers and
burial flags.
For more information, call
toll-free (800) 827-1000, or
visit www.cem.va.gov on the
Web.

Macbeth: Ordinance to hold right of way problematic


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County needs more roads, and
more land for them.
The long-range transporta-
tion committee has suggested
passing an ordinance to pre-
serve potential right of way, but
Ross Macbeth, county attorney,
said it could interfere with
landowners' development
rights.
Essentially, the ordinance
would prevent development
within so many feet of designat-
ed corridors for roads. The
county could defend this around
existing right of way, such as


U.S. 27, but not for future roads
that have not even been
designed yet. Macbeth said.
That's the same as taking a
person's property rights without
buying the property, Macbeth
said. He would prefer the coun-
ty have a clearly defined route,
a financial commitment to build
the road, and the will to buy the
land now.
If the county commission is
ready to buy land now, there's
no need for the ordinance, h6
said.
County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete said he can't defend
the ordinance for new road cor-
ridors because he has no align-


ment designs to show a judge
heree the road will be.
Two roads the ordinance is
meant to protect are Avon Paik
Pat kway and County Road 635.
They both head north and south
although developed and devel-
oping areas. The parkway
extension would be expensive
just from having to buy already
developed land in Avon Park.
Neither one have been
through a planning, design and
engineering study, Gavarrete
said, nor does he have staff to
do that right now.
"We don't know how serious
we are until the (county conm-
mission) says, 'Let's go buy it,'


" Gavarrete said.
Mick Grosh, director of
development for Sun 'N Lake
of Sebring Improvement
District, said his district super-
Sisors support the need for C.R.
635 but don't agree yet on
where the road should be.
Cortez Boulevard is out of
the question because people
have started building houses
there. Balboa Boulevard and
Genoa Avenue are options, but
he needs a clearly defined route
that also avoids scrub jay habi-
tat.
As designed, C.R. 635 would
have to run through the eastern
edge of Highlands Hammock


State Park. To date, the Division
of State Lands has said no to
any land purchase or swap.
Development Services
Director Jim Polatty said the
county looked at extending
C.R. 635 nearly six years ago,
but when residents and state
agencies opposed it. county
commissioners turned it down.
In the 1960s, he said, local gov-
ernment bought up right of way
along U.S. 27 for widening the
road.
Highlands County could eas-
ily face a moratorium on devel-
opment along U.S. 27 before
being able to build suitable
alternative routes, Polatty


warned.
Gavarrete said it could still
take 10 years to get a road built
after doing studies to define it.
Right now;-the-county has 47
road improvements or new
roads in the long range plan that
are needed in the next 20-30
years.
Committee member John
Bock suggested the county
could save 20 percent of its traf-
fic by routing semitrailers to a
western bypass. Dr. Hilary
Swain of Archbold Biological
Station, however, renewed her
request to have that bypass
taken off the plan since it would
run through or beside rare or
protected hlab.itai


Sebring Regional Airport lines up several projects


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Sebring
Regional Airport has a lot of
development going on at its
facility.
The Sebring Airport
Authority has several economic
development projects in plan-
ning or building stages. Pete
McDevitt told the Economic
Development Commission this
week that the airport plans to
design an expansion of the
north-south runway to make it
more attractive to larger planes,
especially passenger planes.
Other plans are as follows:
Aviation Education
A conceptual site plan was
presented to the airport authori-
ty on Oct. 10 for a building for
the Aviation Education


Foundation Inc. lThe tenant is
now working on civil and archi-
tectural drawings.
E-Stone
Anyone driving into the air-
port on Havwood Taylor
Boulevard can see the E-Stone
manufacturing and distribution
facility being built on the north
side of the road. The company
has reported that the' first con-
tainer of manufacturing equip-
ment from Italy has arrived and
more will arrive in the coming
weeks. It plans to be operational
by the first of the year.
New company.
For an unnamed company
planning to move to Sebring, a
proposed location has been
moved to the east side of
Ulmann Drive at the airport.


The company will employ
approximately 50 people in a
50,000 square foot rail-served
facility. The airport is applying
for grants to extend rail to the
east side of Ulmann Drive.

Taxiway
Design is complete on a new
taxiway. Post, Buckley, Schuh
and Jernigan Inc. is reviewing
the design, and when that's
done, it will be sent to the air-
po'rt authority and the Federal
Aviation Administration for
review. The FAA has reported
funding may be available in
June 2006.
Concrete products
Concrete Building Products
Inc. has executed a lease with
the airport. The next step will
he for them to submit a site plan


lor review.
Haywood Taylor Boulevard
Only signs and landscaping
are left to do on Haywood
Taylor Boulevard, but the low-
est bid has far exceeded avail-
able funding. so the airport is
taking with the county on
resolving that. Meanwhile,
Post, Buckley, Schuh anti
Jernigan Inc. has completed a
preliminary alignment for the
road extension and is waiting
on survey inlornmalion to pro-
ceed.
GenPak
Airport staff is working with


GenPak to expand the Sebring
plant. That means more land for
a warehouse and office build-
ing, upgrading existing infra-
structure, and realigning
Webster Turn along the east
edge of the drainage canal.
Other projects
The airport authority is still
trying to acquire the Davis
Land to the north of the airport
for a new runway. The airport
authority also is working with
the county to provide a natural
gas pipeline to the airport.
There is a draft wildlife study
in the works for the airport


property. At the same time, the
county commission has created
an airport zoning category and
an application is ready to
rezone the commerce park to
industrial.
The Florida Local
Government Finance
Commission loan package has
been approved for the third
phase of T-hangars and com-
mercial hangars. It has now
been sent to the governor's
office for approval.
Finally, the commerce park
should see a new anchor tenant.
M.I. Homes Inc. has decided
not to be a part of the project.


Council to cement skateboard park bids

According to the agenda,

BOARD
Continued from 1A
seat that the residents take very
seriously. .There are people in
the district who've lived there
for years who she wouldn't
want to see on that seat.
After supervisors Negley,
Severino, and Charles McHale
expressed .their support for
Collard, Halbig said he was
"relieved" not to be their
choice. "
"I don't think I could fit on
the board anyway," he said,
explaining that he believes the
board today may be' giving
away district land along the
golf course to private landhold-
ers as it allegedly did 20-25
years ago.
"It's strange," he said, "how
Sun 'N Lake got controlled by
a. little group of guys out for
their own benefit."

When she was between 8-10
years old, Seaman related the
day her mother had given her a
special gift.
"LaVerne come over here,"
Seaman said her mother told
her, calling to her and her sis-
ter. "Helen, you get in here ,
too."
Seaman was sure they were
in trouble, for what she didn't
know, but she was about to
find out.
"Mom gave us each a doll,"
she said, letting a smile
escape. "They were the cutest
you ever did see ... I'll be
d----d if they didn't pee their
pants."
She told her mother, who
assured her it was OK. The
dolls were designed to do that.
Seaman offered her dona-
tion when she leaned that
local children might go with-
out presents at Christmas.
"I love children," Seaman
said. It'll make me happy."
Perry said she hopes to
bring Seaman to the Hansen
House after Christmas, so she
can see where her precious
toys went.
"I'm a kid at heart," Seaman
reiterated. "I've enjoyed life
and I'm going to enjoy it
another 20 years."

TUFFIN' T
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Off target
Let', be clear right from the
start. Putting a gun in my hand
and turning me loose, is an act
of folly about on a par with
putting the Three Stooges in
charge of national defense.
I was introduced to weapons
while in the Coast Guard, but
back then (30 years ago) we
were still rescue experts and
pot yet the Smokies of the
Seas
The only gun I ever used
professionally, and then only
once, was a line gun.
So the only thing I was
thinking, as I pulled into the
barking lot of Jim's
istolarrow indoor gun range
hhis weel was, please don't let
ne ,hooi mN self in the foot.
It turned out I didn't have to
worry. Couldn't hit my foot if
i pressed the gun to my shoe.
|Well, that's a slight exagger-
ation. But using a Smith &
Wesson .38, my first six shoots
missed the target altogether.
And the target, I'm embar-
rassed to.admit, was only 24
|feet away.
After that I did a little bet-
ier. Three shots at least went
through the paper, but missed
the silhouette. Then I clustered
six shotsin the left shoulder
area. But of course I had been
aiming for the heart.
Only 'ito shots, a head shot,
and a ght shot, would have
stopped the target cold, if the
target had been an intruder and
I was in fear of my life. And
those were only by happy acci-

More bang for the buck


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

SEBRING Jim and Carm
Morris moved up to Highlands
County from Hialeah 34 years
ago.
Morris worked for Scotty's
Lumberyard at the time. Over
the years, however, he became
unhappy.
Then he said, in the middle of
one night, he woke up his wife
to tell her, "I know what I want
to do. I want to build a family
oriented indoor gun range."
When morning came, Carm
Morris asked her husband if he
had woke her up in the middle
of the night to tell her what he
wanted to build a gun range.
He said yes.
And so their adventure
began.
It didn't come easy. First
there was the problem of get-
ting permission and funding.
Carm Morris told of one
banker who pulled them aside
and warned, "You're out of
your minds. This thing will
never -fly."
Then there were the prob-
lems to solve in turning a strip
mall into a safe shooting range.
But throughout it all, the
Morrises held on to their vision,
and Jim's Pistolarrow Indoor
Gun Range just celebrated 16
years of operation.
Four years ago, the Morrises
decided they'd had enough of
the responsibility, and sold the
business to Doug Barnes. But
they couldn't walk way from
the fun of the place, and so have,
stayed on as managers.
The range is a family orient-
ed business. Children are.. we1l.
come' a.nd there .are speoiis:,.

Leo Flynn, of Lake Placid, takes aim during the Bowling Pip Shoot, held every Thursday night at Jim's
Pistolarrow gun range. The object is to hit the bowling pins in a specific order by color. No caliber larger
than a .45 is used in the shoot because the indoor range can't safely handle the larger caliber or higher
velocity weapons.

Tuesday night is bull's-eye
shooting.,
Wednesday morning belongs

Lessons are available,
including those needed for a

there is a fully stocked gun shop

for $10. The price includes 50

Safety is the primary focus,
but fun follows right behind.

shots.
"They have a keener eye,"
she said, and a softer touch.
They take direction and don't
have anything to prove." She is
pleased that many father and
daughter duos turn out to shoot
together on a regular basis.
As if to prove her point, one
daughter beat her dad Thursday
night at the Bowling Pin Shoot.

Yianni's offers a prime choice


Former Olympic owners
open new restaurant
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
Neis-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Yianni's Prime Choice Bar and
Grill has a double meaning. It means that not
only the best meats are offered, but you've made
a prime choice when choosing to dine at Yianni's,
which is the Greek word for "Johnny."
The owners are John and Mary' Emanoilidis,
and Jimmy and Maria Tsakalos.
"I moved here in 1979 and built the Olympic
Restaurant in Avon Park. Eight years ago, we
sold it to Jimmy and Maria. We've been togeth-
er in business for 25 years, and always supported
the local community, holding benefits for the
schools, police, sheriff, and fire departments,"
John Emanoilidis said.
They all felt it was time to move into a more
upscale restaurant. Previously it was Savannah's
Restaurant, but over the past three months,
they've completely remodeled it. An authentic
wood-fire open pit is in the dining room where
steaks and chops can be grilled on oak, hickory
and citrus to produce a clean fire. The menu is
steak and seafood, but they also offer pastas and
salads.
Yianni's has created a beautiful new atmos-
phere, where it offer good service, good food,
hospitality and reasonable prices. Its meats, fish
and wine selections are displayed in a cooler as a


TARGET
Continued from 13A
dent.
Put another way, I won't be
applying to the sheriff's office
or any other law enforcement
agency, any time soon.
And I wouldn't make it as a
gun instructor either.
I saw that quickly when I
returned to the Pistolarrow
Thursday night to watch the
Bowling Pin Shoot.
I didn't take part because the
shooters were serious minded,
and a whole lot more capable
than I am.
The point of the contest is to
shoot bowling pins, in a certain
fixed order.
The pins are tied to ropes
and hung in rows from the
ceiling. In the beginning they
_ hang straight and are still. But
'once the game gets under way,
depending on the caliber of the
gun and the velocity of the-bul-
let, the pins begin to dance on
the end of their strings.
So a shooter using a .22, fol-
lowing a shooter who used a
.45, has a real challenge as the
small target swings back and
forth.
The Bowling Pin Shoot has
been a Pistolarrow fixture
since the range opened 16
years ago. But one of the regu-
lar members, Marty Raskin,
came up with a Christmas ver-
sion of the game.
The pins are painted in solid
red or green, or in red and
green combinations. The shoot-
er gets to shoot six rounds
three times each turn. He or
she has to shoot solid or mixed
color pins in an alternating
order.
A shooter earns 20 points for
every correct pin hit. There are
no deductions for misses or
wrong flits.
However, time is factored
into the equation, because a
shooter's time is deducted
from the pin score. This means
a person has to be fast as well
as accurate.
In a small aside. At one
point in the action, a shooter's


customer enters. And there's a big variety of
steaks to choose from such as top sirloin, .New
York strip, delmonico, T-bone, filet mignon,
porterhouse, kabobs, chopped sirloin and prime
rib of beef. For seafood, there are broiled or
blackened choices such as Gulf grouper, North
Atlantic salmon, filet de sole, swordfish, Gulf
snapper, stuffed filet of sole, jumbo fried shrimp,
shrimp scampi, charcoal grilled sl---
Maryland soft shell crabs, rock lobster tails au
Alaskan king crab. If reef or beef aren't your
favorites, then try the chicken breast,
Mediterranean chicken, grilled quail, pork chops,
veal chops, lamb chops, baby back ribs, or ham
steak.
Top it all off with gourmet coffee and one of
their celebrated homemade desserts.
"We're restaurateurs and are here every day
making sure everything is of the highest quality.
There's seating for 250 people. We want to hire
professionals, but we'll also train them. We're
'hands on' people," John Emanoilidis said.
They believe now is the perfect time to offer
Yianni's. People in Highlands County no longer
have to drive two hours away to Tampa or
Orlando to get something of this quality. People
who know the Emanoilidis and Tsakalos families
are excited about this new restaurant.
Yianni's Prime Choice Bar and Grill is at 3750
U.S. 27 North in the Fairmount Cinema shopping
center. Call 385-9222 for details. Hours of opera-
tion are 4-10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and
4-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.


.22 jammed and had to be
fixed. During the break, I
asked for permission to walk
onto the range and take a
close-up picture of one of the
pins.
Well, it turned out to be a
difficult photograph. The pin
was swinging in arid out of
focus, and when I zoomed in to
capture the bullet holes and
splintered wood, you couldn't
tell it was a bowling pin.
So I was pretty focused on
what I was doing when Jim
Morris, who built and still
operates the gun range and was
the game's umpire, sounded
the timer that starts the game.
He had hoped to scare me
into thinking someone was
about to shoot. But I was con-
centrating so hard the sound
went right over my head and I
'paid it no attention.
He took this as a sign of
courage, when what it really
was, was tunnel vision.
What I found the hardest to


adjust to, was not being able to
see the bullet travel. Throw a
ball and you can track it visu-
ally. It makes it possible to
adjust your throw. But with
guns and bullets, there's a loud
bang and either a hole appears
in the target or it doesn't. I felt
disconnected and couldn't fig-
ure out how to fix what I was
doing wrong.
It turned out people have
more to fear if they are stand-
ing behind and slightly to the
left of whatever I'm actually
aiming at, than they do if I
point a gun directly at them.
Which is why I say when it
comes to guns, it's a case of
Larry, Curly, Moe and me.

ued operation of the existing railroad system,

spection during normal business hours, 8:00

cept legal holidays, at the Florida Department

Statutes, before the deadline for filing a peti-
tion. The procedures for petitioning for a hear-
ing are set forth below.

tion until the request is acted upon. If a re-

tion to the applicant at the address indicated

Under sections 120.569(2)(c) and (d) of
the Florida Statutes, a petition for administra-
t live hearing must be dismissed by the agency

ing.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

The 'give' in

forgiveness
Sometimes we give gifts
that we don't even realize
we're giving and then they
come back to bless us.
As a young mother, I
experienced the heartache of
divorce. My sorrow deep-
ened for my innocent child
suffering his own pain
alongside me.
Disappointments, such as
when his father didn't show
up for a promised visit,
clouded my son's world.
We'd commiserate together
and then I'd talk to him
about forgiveness.
This concept is difficult
for adults to grasp let alone
for a child..I chose my
words thoughtfully, trusting
God to help me explain it to
him; as I also sought to live
it before him.
I recall handling it by val-
idating his feelings while
pointing out that if he held
the hurt in his heart, it
would get worse and he
S would be miserable. For his
own good and for the man
he would become some day,
it was crucial for me to nur-
ture a believing heart in him
one that trusted God in'
spite of what life might send
his way. I said something to
this effect, "God doesn't
want us to hold anger or
mean feelings toward.some
one else and, when we let
him, Jesus will help us over-
come our feelings and show
kindness. In a way, it's like
we need to feel sorry for
daddy and pray for him
because he is missing so
much with us."
Then we'd pray.
After a time it became
easier for him to let God '
handle things that weren't in
our control lifting him
above his misery and free-
ing him, one episode at a
time, from unforgiveness.
Today, he is a forgiving per-
son who helps others to
understand this truth.
On Christmas Day, God
.held out the olive branch of
forgiveness in the gift of his'
Son, Jesus Christ fulfilled
through his death and resur-
rection on our behalf.
"In him we have redemp-
,tion through his blood, the
forgijenehss of sins, in accor-
dance with the riches of
God's grace that he lavished
on us with all wisdom and
understanding." (Ephesians
1: 7 & 8, NIV)
Such love and forgiveness
is beyond our understanding
but so necessary for our
wholeness. Perhaps this
Christmas, we not only need
to receive it, but to give it.
One day, as we talked
about his growing up years,
my young adult son said to
me, "I know that divorce
had to be really traumatic
for you and that you suf-
fered a lot of things. But,
Mom, somehow, you kept
the trauma from me."
This is the "give" in for-
giveness that is ongoing. I,
treasure my son,s words as
a gift and, like Mary, ponder
them in my heart.
Give and receive forgive-
ness this Christmas. Selah.

Eisnaugle draws from family life to write book of story poems


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
*News-Sun correspondent '
SEBRING Linda Eisnaugle has created a charm-
ing book of story poems entitled "Footprints in the
Pies."
They are drawn from her family life and her early
childhood on her grandfather's ranch in Lake Placid.
She and her husband own Quiznos in Sebring, and they
have five children who are featured in her book.
"Eric and his wife, Terry, are both attorneys in
Orlando now, having met at Vanderbilt Law School.
Mindy owns and operates a modeling agency in
Nashville. Ian, who gave up his nickname of 'Crash' at
age 16 when he started driving, is now a junior at
Florida State. Morgan is a graduate of Sebring High
School and he plans to enroll at the community college.
Megan, the youngest at 16, has Downs syndrome, and
is a freshman at Sebring High. She loves everybody
and everybody loves her," Eisnaugle said.
S"These stories came to me as I reminisced about the
past and my childhood. My favorites are the Castles of
Eis. These are based on my kids' mishaps, with a
medieval tone. The Little Miss Margaret stories were
events experienced as a child. The album collection
includes some odds and ends, like when a teacher
friend found a snake in her bathroom," Eisnaugle said.
Eisnaugle has written a second book. She says it will
be similar to "Footprints in the Pies." They will be
story poems plus some short vignette stories. They will
be entertaining of course, but also serious about real

people living through and overcoming their difficulties.
These stories will emphasize the heart and soul.
SWith degrees in English and music, Eisnaugle teach-
es reading, critical-thinking skills and music apprecia-
tion at Sebring High School. She and her husband
played in a band for 12 years "when we were young
and strong," Eisnaugle said. They were the house band
at the, old Holiday Inn,(now Best Western) in Lake


Placid. Locals knew them as Eric and Linda (when they
played as a duo) or as the Eric John Show.
"I played keyboard and he played bass and sax and
was the main singer, although we are both singers and
have music degrees. In the beginning our band had .10
people, but the size varied over time. We played Top
40, and light rock. We played various hotels and trav-
eled the east coast. It was fun and there are lots of great
memories," Eisnaugle said.
After sending in a poem story entitled "Christmas
Lights for Sukey," PublishAmerica asked her to pro-
duce a book of 8,500 words. "By the time I finished, it
was. almost 10,000 words. The entire process took me
about eight to 10 months," Eisnaugle said.
Something people will be hearing more of is a new
theatrical outfit in this area, according to Eisnaugle. It
is headed by Larry and Rachel Moore who were at the
recent art festival in Sebring. They put on productions
every half hour in the children' section. "They have
asked to present my 'Belle and her Beau' as a mini skit.
I really feel honored," Eisnaugle said.
"My favorites in this book are the 'Castle of Eis'
series, especially 'Spaghetti Wars.' Everything was true
except that very last line. In fact, everything in
'Footprints in the Pies' is true. It's just written in a poet-
ic manner," Eisnaugle said. If people are interested in
purchasing the book, they can go to www.publishamer-
ica.com or call Eisnaugle at 214-7000. The 64-page
book sells for $13.

ARTS & LEISURE


SEBRING Clowns from
the Toby the Clown Foundation
have been a busy group this
year.
Aside from performing in
three individual parades in
Avon Park, Sebring, and Lake
Placid, they also put on shows
for the local divisions of the
Elks and Shriners.
Each year the Elks and the
Shriners put on parties for their
children. The clowns attended
both events and performed
skits, magic, and sang songs
with the kids.
This was in addition to all
the clown's regular activities.
Clowns go to the Sebring and
Lake Placid Library, the
Redlands Christian Migrant
Association day care centers,
and nursing homes each
month.
Clowns are busy folks and
have a lot of fun bringing
smiles and happiness to area
children. If you are interested
in being a clown, now is the
time to join.
Contact the Clown Museum
and sign up for classes that start
Jan. 9. For details, call the
museum at 465-2920 or call
Keith Stokes at 465-4438.

Clowning around town


Couture's Gallery


displayed at
SEBRING Robert
Butler, the noted
Highwayman Artist famous
for bringing "Painting Florida
Southern Landscapes" into
our homes through the medi-
um of PBS television,
unveiled his latest painting, a
commissioned work entitled
"Hammock Creek" at
Couture's Gallery.
Allora and Dick Couture
hosted a reception where the
public were invited to view
some of Butler's wide collec-
tion of landscapes, seascapes
and scenes of Florida farm
life. Couture's Gallery and
Frames sell original as well as
signed Giclees and prints of
the artist's work.
Following in their father's
footsteps, three of Robert's
children Aletha, Robert Jr. and
Dorene have each become
well-known artists in their


own right. Aspiring local
artists wanting to learn the
Butler's method of painting
acrylic landscapes will have
an opportunity of doing so in
workshops by Doreen Butler


in Lake Placid in the near
future. Coordinating the class-
es will be local artist and long-
time Butler devotee, Mara
SYeates-Trumbo. For details
call 699-6571.

To arrange for a pickup please call the City Office at 471-5100. Tires

Putting the right plant in the right place


This is the third in a series of articles
written on the new area program called
Florida Yards & Neighborhoods. The
program is being implemented through
your local county extension service in
Highlands. Okeechobee and Glades
County and is partially funded from
Clean Water Act Section 319 funding
from the U. S. EPA through the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection.
Plant selection can be the fun part of
landscaping a "Florida Friendly Yard."
If you are from the North Country, like
I am, you probably marvel at the diver-
sity of plants that grow in this area.
You may want to try everything or are
dismayed at the number and find it
hard to choose.

GROWING

SEASON

Highlands
County Master
Gardeners


Remember, the plants you select determine the
level of maintenance required and also how long
your landscape will last.
Plants already on your property, particularly
low maintenance native plants, should be
retained. Saving existing plants reduces cost and
leaves valuable wildlife habitat undisturbed.
Select from a list that includes suitable native
plants as once they are established most require
little, if any, supplemental water, fertilizer or pes-
ticides. If you won't be irrigating your yard select
drought tolerant plants that are suited to your soil.
Consider flowering and fruiting plants that bring
birds and butterflies into your yard.
Please do not plant noxious or invasive


species. Florida prohibits planting of
Brazilian Pepper, Australian Pine,
Melaleuca, Carrotwood, Chinese
Tallow and many others.
Strive to create a mosaic of trees,
shrubs, groundcovers, native grasses
and wildflowers. Large plantings of the
same species are prone to disease and
insect infestation.
Turf areas should be functional and
designed for easy maintenance.
Bahiagrass tends to be more carefree
than St. Augustine.
Groundcovers are especially useful in
shady or sloped areas where turf may not
thrive or is difficult to maintain.
Don't be fooled by the Quick-fix
appeal of fast growing plants. They


require more pruning, resulting in more clippings
and yard waste. Slower growing plants may take
longer, but they will last longer and create less
work.
Choose plants hardy in this region. We do have
occasional frost throughout the area and non-
hardy plants may not survive. Also, plants tuned
to cooler climates may not survive our hot, humid
summers.

Ed Ayen is available to address interested
groups such as homeowners associations, volun-
tary organizations and clubs. For further infor-
mation he can be reached by calling the
Highlands County Extension Service office at
402-6540 or by e-mail edayen@ufl.edu

At one time, Thomas want-

however, the Lord had differ-

to church youth camps, he
then realized that Christian
drama could be used for much
more than Christmas and
Easter musicals. He saw it as a
powerful tool for ministry and


sketches and mime with
humor and sincerity which
makes for an unforgettable
worship experience for the
believer and a picture of salva-

Book series cites blunders and boo-boo's


Having recently browsed
through the series on amazing
human folly titled, "The Darwin
Awards: Evolution in Action;"
"The Darwin Awards II:
Unnatural Selection;" "The
Darwin Awards 3: Survival of
the Fittest," it seemed natural to
just keep shaking my head in
disbelief by taking on "Ripley's
Believe It or Not!-Planet
Eccentric!"
Reading about all the
thoughtless actions of the
human race is a never-ending
source of amusement and
amazement.
You see, in order to have
your story in the Ripley series,
you must do something no one
in their right mind would
attempt, however, to' be in the
Darwin books, your thought-
lessness has to lead to your
death!
I did find one "lucky" soul
who was featured in both
books. Perhaps the incredible
story was just too good to leave


out.
It seems that there were two
would-be bank robbers, one of
whom had a loaded gun. The
gun wielder ordered, "no one
make a move." Unfortunately,
his partner in crime moved. Yes,
he killed his own accomplice.
You'll be reading out loud
from "Weird Wonders and
Bizarre Blunders; America's
Strangest Museums;" "Oops,
the Complete Book of
Bloopers; Ripley's Believe It or
Not! Accidents &
Disasters;" "Ripley's Believe It
or Not!-Encyclopedia of the
Bizarre," "Amazing, Strange,
Inexplicable, Weird, and All
True!;" "The Worst of
Everything; America's Top 10
Curiosities;" "Strange Talents:
People Who Can See the
Future, Heal the Sick, &
Communicate With the Dead;"
"505 Unbelievably Stupid Web
Pages;" or check out any of the
series, "Guinness Book of
Records."


Get back to nature: Visit


If you love nature then I'm
sure you've visited one of
Florida's State Parks. In fact, I
would be surprised if you are
reading this article and haven't
visited a state park. Florida's
State Park system is one of the
nation's largest: 159 state parks
spanning more than 723,000
acres and 100 miles of sandy
white beach.
Florida's park system is so
outstanding that it's even won a
prestigious award, twice. The
National Recreation and Parks
Association's Gold .Medal
Award was presented at the
2005 National Recreation and

Congress and
Exposition in San
Antonio, Texas. This
remarkable accom-
plishment marks the
first time a state
agency was awarded
the Gold Metal
twice. The Florida
Park Service, man-
_ aged under the
Florida Department
of Environmental
Protection, was a
finalist in the
National Rebreation
and Parks


Association Gold Medal award
in 1997, and won the Gold
Medal in 1999. Florida compet-
-ed with state park systems from
Missouri, North Carolina and
Tennessee for the award.
Here in Highlands County
we are fortunate to have
Highlands Hammock State
Park. With the cooler weather
on its way and a host of upcom-
ing events, now is the perfect
time for a trip to the Park.
Visitors can enjoy bicycling the
scenic 3-mile Loop Drive or
hiking along the park's nine
trails. An elevated boardwalk
traverses an old-growth cypress


swamp. For equestrians, there
is an 11-mile, day-use trail.
Picnicking, camping, and
ranger-guided tours of the park
are other popular activities.
Highlands Hammock is four
miles west of Sebring from the
comer of US 27 and Hammock
Road.
Also in Highlands County is
the more primitive Lake June-
in-Winter Scrub State Park. The
park is located in Lake Placid
and encompasses 845 acres of
predominantly scrub habitat.
Some of Florida's rarest plants
and animals, including the
Florida scrub-jay, Florida scrub
lizard, Florida mouse, deer,
gopher tortoise, and
bobcat are found in
the scrub. Ospreys
and bald eagles are
frequently sighted
along the three miles
of lakefront. Hikers
should bring lots of
drinking water (there
is none available at
the site), a compass,
FROM camera, binoculars,
sturdy shoes, sun-
E block, hat and either
SHED a companion or cell
phone.
If your family is
Donze interested in saltwa-
ter fishing and surf-
ing; take a day trip to
Sebastian Inlet State Park. This
park is a favorite for anglers for
catching snook, redfish, blue-
fish, ard Spanish mackerel
from its jetties. Surfing also is a
common recreation. Several
competitions are held through-
out the year.
Crystal River Archeological
State Park has a lot of exciting
features to explore. The park is
a National Historical
Landmark. The six-mound
complex was the site for Native
American burial, trade, and cer-
emony for 1,600 years.

Sun 'N Lake wants impact fees for main boulevard


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Topping Sun
'N Lake's list of goals for 2006
is getting impact fees in place to
improve, Sun 'N Lake
Boulevard.
The road works fine now, but
in a few years, with population
increasing in the district and the
county, it may need wider lanes,
improved traffic circles and
more sidewalks to accommo-
date both school-age and retiree
residents.
It was the first item on a list
of goals General Manager
Marvin Fischer proposed to the
board of supervisors at a work-
shop recently.
More than anything else, he
wants Sun 'N Lake of Sebring
Improvement District to coordi-
nate with the county on devel-
opment issues, so the area will
be ready. So far, the county's


discussion on impact fees has
centered on transportation and
roads, Fischer said.
"At this point, I see us as out
of the loop," Fischer said.
Fischer would like to coordi-
nate with the county for traffic
management on Sun 'N Lake
Boulevard, a county maintained
road. This would include plan-
ning for increased traffic on that
road and identifying funding to
deal with it, by June 30, 2006,
Fischer said.
Development
Fischer would like Sun 'N
Lake staff to develop land
development regulations to
coincide with the county's.
Drainage is one major issue that
could get corrected this way,
according to the supervisors.
Some previous developments
in the district did not deal with
drainage, and have had minor


flooding problems as a result.
District business
Fischer would like to have
the district's assessments ana-
lyzed and reviewed to make
sure they are fair and provide
the funds the district needs for
infrastructure. Developing a
plan for the town center and
resort center is high on the list,
as is updating and improving
the district's Internet site.
A secondary goal under dis-
trict business would be hiring
both a financial advisor and
bond counsel. Fischer wants a
maintenance schedule for exist-
ing water, sewer and drainage
systems. He'd also like to have
a regular newsletter for the dis-
trict.

School
In the next 10 years, the dis-


trict stands to have a significant
increase in the number of young
people. Fischer wants to coordi-
nate with The School Board of
Highlands County and National
Recreational Properties Inc. to
find a site by November 2006
for a new high school in the dis-
trict. A secondary goal involves
getting more recreational
opportunities for youth.


Secondary goals
On a list of secondary goals,
Fischer would like to work with
Progress Energy to put in power
lines, either overhead or under-
ground, for increased develop-
ment.
He wants a capital improve-
ment plan and maintenance
schedule for district-owned
roads. They would need to com-


ply with the county's new
codes, supervisors said, includ-
ing making all of them 20 feet
wide.
Another goal would have
him and district staff reviewing
the district's cooperation with
law enforcement, fire services
and emergency medical servic-
es to see if there is room for
improvement.

Normally, my LAURA
telling someone LA

would be as valid
as my telling Tiger
Woods how to golf.
In other words, I am not the
most qualified person on the
planet.
If you look at my house right
now, 'you would see no
Christmas decoration on the
outside or inside of the place.
It's not that I have anything
against such decorations. As far
as the inside of the house goes,
it has been the simple fact that
Don and I have not had time to
lug the boxes of decorations
from their spot in a closet and
go through them. John and
James are at the stage of their
lives that they don't notice
Christmas decorations unless I
ask them to help decorate.
Then they notice they have
somewhere else to be.
When it comes to the outside
of the house, we have rarely
done much to the outside. This
is, something my sons might
have been interested in if it

meant they could
climb onto the roof,
but I have some-
thing against anxi-
ety attacks and my


children maneuver-
ing on a roof would
be a good way of triggering
one.
Even with my lack of qualifi-
cations in this area, I have to
admit I feel quite able to com-
ment upon the decoration
choices of Joel Krupnik and
Mildred Castellanos, who live
in Manhattan. They have taken
a.unique approach to Christmas
decorating. At least, unique if
you aren't someone like
Stephen King.
I have not been able to see a
picture of this display, so I have
had to rely on the descriptions
I've read. What I've read is
pretty odd.
For example, there is a tree
decorated with decapitated
Barbie dolls. A 5-foot tall Santa
Claus is partially behind tihe
tree, holding a doll's head that
has fake blood coming out of its
eye sockets.
Not your traditional decorat-
ing choices, that's for sure.


In a telephone interview,
Krupnik said that his family
was making a statement on
what they saw as the commer-
cialization and secularization of
Christmas. He denied that they
had meant to offend anyone.
While some people are
undoubtedly offended (let's
face it, it doesn't take much to
offend people and this is pretty
extreme) a lot of people appear
to be bemused. According to
the article I read on the Internet,
one person who saw the display
wondered if something bad had
happened to one of the house's
occupants one Christmas.
Others wondered how kids
would react to the display.
I can answer that last one.
Kids don't freak out about stuff
like this anymore. Maybe a real
young child would be troubled,
but older ones have seen worse.
This is a sad commentary on
how jaded our youth are
becoming, but that's another
column.
I think the display is proba-
bly going to stay up through the
holidays. Even if someone was
going to complain about it, it's
on private property and well


within the free speech rights
guaranteed under the First
Amendment. Plus, I am not
without sympathy with the sen-
timent Krupnik expressed about
how Christmas has been secu-
larized and commercialized,
especially after a trip to Wal-
Mart.
Even with my sympathy, I
think that perhaps this display
went over the top. I'm not sup-
portive of the commercializa-
tion of Christmas, but putting
up a gruesome display as the
New York family apparently
did not send a clear message
against it. If you have to explain
the statement your display is
presenting, I'm not sure how
effective it is.
Instead, I will let my lack of
outdoor decoration stand as a
statement against the commer-
cialization of Christmas. Then I
will think about getting the
indoor decorations down from
the shelf.

Editor:
Just about everyone has seen
the holiday movie classic "It's a
Wonderful Life." Beloved
actor Jimmy Stewart stars as
the main character, George-
Bailey, who suffers a signifi-
cant loss during the Christmas
season and considers suicide.
The idea of suicide during the
holidays unfortunately is not a
new one, but the thought that
suicides actually increase dur-
ing the holidays is a myth.
In reality suicides drop dur-
ing the winter months, accord-
ing to the National Center for
Health Statistics. Nevertheless,
for some people, the theme of
holiday celebrations can com-
pound pre-existing depression
or grief.
Christmas is a beautiful time
and for some people it is "the
happiest time of the year." But
we need to understand many
people are not happy during the
yuletide season they are
depressed and that depres-
sion can be compounded by the
stresses of the holidays. Let me
offer a few suggestions for
those who may be suffering
from depression at this time of
year:
1. Don't have unrealistic
expectations. Set realistic
goals. Pace yourself. Organize
your time. Don't put all the
focus on just one day, remem-
ber this is a season activities
can be spread out to lessen
stress and increase enjoyment.
Be realistic and remember that
no person or family is perfect.
Every Christmas is not going to
be a Norman Rockwell picture.
2. Allow yourself to feel. It's
,a fairy tale to think you must
always be cheerful during the
holidays. Experiencing a wide-
variety of emotions during the
holiday season is completely
natural. It's all right to allow
yourself to feel a variety of
emotions. Just don't linger on
negative feelings.
3. Do something for others.
Get your attention off yourself
by helping others in need.
4. Enjoy activities that are
free. Christmas doesn't have to
be about giving Madison
Avenue gifts. Think of simpli-
fying your gift giving, your
holiday entertainment and your
life.
5. Limit or avoid alcohol
consumption. Don't use alco-
hol to relieve stress. Remember
that alcohol amplifies depres-
sion and clouds a person's
thinking.
6. Spend time with support-
ive people. The holiday season
is a good time to reach out and
make new friends or contact an
old one. An easy outlet for
meeting people this time of
year is through local churches
where the holiday season is a
time of heightened activities
open to visitors.
7. Don't live in the past. No
Christmas is perfect, not even
the ones you remember from
the "good ol' days." Life brings
changes. Each season of life is


"Copyrighted Material

93


different and can be enjoyed in
its own way.
8. Count your blessings. If
you do think of the "good ol'
days" put them in perspective
and be thankful for the good
memories. Rather than dwell
on everything that's gone
wrong in life, think of the many
ways you've been blessed.
Lastly, if holiday depression'
or suicidal thoughts persist for
you or someone you love, then
seek professional help. It could
be that a chemical imbalance is
at the root of the depression
and medication is needed. Or it
could be Seasonal Affective
Disorder (SAD), a physical
condition in which the lack. of
sunlight negatively affects a
person's mood. Whatever,
don't suffer in silence. Seek
help.

Mentally Ill (NAMI) of Polk

The rewriting

of our history
Editor:
Historians have a habit of
making heroes out of past pres-
idents, many who were nothing
more than criminals.
This brings to mind the pres-
ent president of these United
States, a president who was not
elected by the people for his


first term but was appointed by
the Supreme Court. He was and
is the "Prince of War" and not
the "Prince of Peace" he would
have the world believe.
He has destroyed the integri-
ty of millions of Americans in
the minds and hearts of all
nations.
.He has helped to destroy the
lives of millions of Americans'
as well as millions all over the
world. He has promoted illegal
immigration, opened borders,
preemptive war, torture of pris-
oners of war, destruction of our
health system, destruction of
our pension system, destruction
of a living wage, the list goes
on and on.
He is a war criminal of the
worst kind and should be tried
in an international court.
Historians will put a differ-
ent spin on history.
But the great General of
France, Napoleon, made a fair
statement of what history truly
is.
History is nothing more than
the agreed upon lies of people.
Is our sitting president a silk
purse or a sow's ear?
Grover Cleveland's first
inaugural address on March 4
1885, called for close scrutiny
of government officials.
Your every voter, as surely
as your Chief Magistrate, under
the same high sanction, though
in a different sphere, exercises
a public trust ... Every citizen
owes to their country a vigilant
watch and close scrutiny of its
public servants and a fair and
reasonable estimate of their
fidelity and usefulness. This is
the people's will impressed
upon the whole framework of
our civil polity.
Billie E. Jewett
Sebrine


a Merry Christmas.
I have climbed on the band
wagon of all those Christians
who have finally voiced
enough is enough and we want
Christ back in Christmas. Even
the bank I have had for nearly
20 years runs a banner on their
Web page with Happy Holidays
to all, what holidays? For all
other believers, non-believers,
far eastern religions and any
religion I did not notice a.ban-
ner for their "holidays."
This is the season of
Christmas and the reason for
this season is Christ. If you
don't want to admit, then don't,
but do not offend me by calling
my Christmas "happy holi-
days" and for all your other
clientele, whom you do not
wish to offend, run a banner for
them whenever you feel it is
appropriate, but do not walk on
eggshells during the Christmas
season. If separate religions are
having celebrations at the same
time, then acknowledge both,
but why take Christ out of
Christmas? Perhaps He has
taken you out of Christmas.
And for all the stores this
season who fail to realize the
reason for the season, I have
not purchased from you. Thank
you for the money I have
saved. The gifts I have to give
this year have come from my
heart, which is what Christmas
is about anyway: loving, car-
ing, sharing, joy, being togeth-
er, doing for others. We all
know it is not about who gets
what and how much did it cost.
This is the celebration of the
birth of Christ.

A pharmacist with a conscience?


% Isl

Everyone knows
someone who uses JUST A
drugs. The kind
that keep your
heart going, or thin
the blood, lower
the blood pressure.
regulate diabetes or pain or a
million other ailments or afflic
tions.
The drug companies even
push them on television without
any indication of what they're
for. We've all seen the adve-
tisements 30-second info-
mercials for some mysterious
drug that cures something, but
the only way to find out what, is
to ask your doctor what it's for
and if you need it. What is thal:'
That's like going to the
mechanic and asking out of the
clear blue if you need a new
carburetor, even though your
car is running fine -and you
wouldn't recognize the symp-
toms of a bad carburetor if you
had them.
The pharmaceutical industry
is a multi-billion dollar indus-
try, and make no mistake, it is a-
business first. But like any
other business, there are those
that stand out and distinguish
themselves for one reason or
another ... like Jim Witt.
Witt has come up with a
novel approach to selling what
amounts to life or death in a
bottle for many people; he
thinks that he should have the
right to sell drugs for what he


Ti
MW


determines to be a
HOUGHT fair profit. and not
what is printed on
use'r' the bottle by the
drug companies.
S h a r o ii
Martinson contact
ed Blorg Dlrug in Ashby, Minn..
when her prescription drug bill
icached $800 a month. It is now
521)00 a month, and while Witt,
her new prescription drug
source. admits that his profit
margin could be higher, he sim-
ply cannot see himself charging
people exorbitant amounts for
what lie sometimes pays pen-
nies for. Wilt points to one drug
with a suggested retail price of
$198 a bottle. Witt's price for
the bottle ... $15.
Clearly Borg drugs can't sup-
ply the entire United States with
fairly priced prescription drugs,
but what Witt has done is to
shed a little light on the mystery,
of why many prescription drugs
are so expensive; because they
can be ... it's just that simple.
More often than not pharma-
cies change the suggested retail
or very near it when they could
easily make needed drugs more
economical. It would be one
thing if they were selling roses
or clothing, or something that
people have the option of doing
without, but we're talking about
life-altering, absolute necessi-
ties, some of which are being
marked up well over 1,000 per-
cent.


This is America, and free
enterprise is what makes this
country great, but when our eld-
erly or our children have to go
without needed drugs because
the cost is so far out of reach,
there's something very wrong.
Witt seems to have discovered
what it is, and it sounds a lot
like greed.
S"I could be charging more,
but I wouldn't feel right about
it." Witt said.
Interesting concept ....here's
hoping that it catches on.

Mountaintop removal destroys towns, homes and lives 1.,",,:


ENVIRONMENTAL
NOTES
Lloyd Jones


Moun-
taintop
removal
strip min-
ing is the
practice of
blasting
off the
tops of
moun -
tains so
huge
machines
can mine
thin
seams of
coal. The


coal companies dump the
mountaintops into nearby val-
leys and streams to create "val-
ley fills," converting beautiful
mountain landscapes covered in
hardwood forests into fields of
sparse grass. Many local people
who live near this destruction
call it "mountain massacre"
mining.
This desecration is taking
place in West Virginia,
Kentucky, Virginia and
Tennessee. Coal companies
have made communities near
the mines unlivable from con-
stant blasting, dust clouds cov-
ering homes, and overloaded
coal trucks rumbling through
town. Instead of trying to be
good neighbors, companies pre-
fer to force people living near
the mines to sell their homes
and leave. Whole communities
such as Blair in West Virginia
have been wiped out.
Aerial inspections show that
mountaintop removal mines
have already leveled between
15 and 25 percent of southern
West Virginia's mountains.
Today, the mines in West
Virginia alone have buried
more than a 1,000 miles of
streams and have cut down
300,000 acres of hardwood
forests.
Twenty years ago, no one
dreamed a coal mine would
destroy so much land and sacri-
fice entire communities to get at
a seam of coal. One mountain-
top removal mine can strip up
to 10 square miles and dump
millions of tons of waste into as
many as 12 valley fills that can
be !,000 feet wide and one mile
long. They may have permits to
-- mine but they do not haveper-.
mits to destroy the mountains,
the hardwood forests that took
hundreds of years to grow or
the homes of the people who
have lived there all of their
lives.
The federal coal law requires
all mine operators to prevent
blasting damage to homes,
water supplies and protect pub-'
lic safety. The coal companies
routinely cause damage but
state and federal regulators
rarely enforce the blasting stan-
dards for any type of coal min-
ing.
Former West Virginia legisla-
tor Joan Linville now works to
stop mountaintop mining. She
said that most residents know
better than to look for a link
between public policy and pub-
lic.good, at least when it comes
to "King Coal." When the union
mines closed down, her hus-
band was one of the men about
to retire.
Now a widow, she said, "he
got gypped out of a pension and
had no health insurance." The
house they shared shakes from
dynamite blasts and floods
when heavy rains run off the
unnatural topography. Linville
trusts God for a lot of things,
but when a storm lasts more
than an hour,' she leaves the
area.
A 36-year-old mother of two,
Maria Gunnoe left her job as a
waitress to become a full-time
organizer for the Ohio Valley
Environmental Coalition. She
remembers the 45 minutes of
hard rain on June 16, 2003,
when a brown wall of rocks,
mud, trees and water rushed
down the hill behind her house,
where a mountaintop mining
project had drastically changed
the topography. Her young
daughter was so frightened that
Gunnoe had to cover her eyes.
"I dropped to my knees for a
moment, praying with every-
thing I had," she said. "Then I
put a rain slicker over her head
and threw her over my shoul-
der."
They barely escaped with
their lives. "Something you
have at the end of every valley
fill is a flooded valley," she
said.
Another young lady, Julia
Bonds, the community outreach
coordinator for a tiny grassroots
organization, Coal River Watch,
said, "We are living with


domestic terrorism
from these coal
barons and our
lapdog politicians
are working hand
in hand with the
corporations that
put them in place
to destroy our chil-
dren's world. They
think we're a
bunch of ignorant
hillbillies."
Bond's ances-
tors settled in
Marfork Hollow
(or "holler," as the
locals say) after
the Revolutionary
War. Here, she and
her six siblings Anotherstr
grew up poor, their
father died of
black lung three months after
retiring from underground min-
ing. She looks back on her
childhood fondly and raised her
daughter here. Then, in 1993,
the A.T: Massey Coal Company
moved in and began blasting.
After a while, coal dust per-
meated Bond's home, and her
young grandson, Andrew,
developed asthma. She began
noticing black water spills in
the stream her family had
enjoyed for six generations. She
knew something was terribly
wrong one day when she saw
dead fish all around Andrew's
feet as he stood in the stream.
When she investigated, she
learned that Massey was build-
ing a large slurry dam at the
head of her hollow. There are
136 such dams in the state hold-
ing bi Illons of gallons of waste-
water, rock, and mining's toxic
byproducts including mercury,
lead, arsenic and chromium.


Courtesy of OVEC
eam buried by bulldozed overburden in the Appalachians.


With accidental discharges a
real danger, the people living
below these dams sleep uneasi-
ly. One 300 million-gallon spill
by a Massey subsidiary in
Kentucky created a state of
emergency for 10 counties.
Bonds held out for years, but
when her 8-year-old grandson
started concocting evacuation
plans, she knew it was time to
go. From her new home on a
grassy hill, 10 miles away from
Marfork, she says that she and
Andrew miss their old fishing
spots, "but to save my family's
life, we needed to move out of
that hollow, as much as it killed
me."
People living in the area now
suffer because the mining com-
panies, many years ago, bought
the mineral rights from their
grandparents .and great-grand-
parents for a pittance.
The coal companies are flat-
tening the' Appalachian
Mountains. What they and the


politicians are doing to those
beautiful green mountains is
truly a crime against nature.

Third gym a charm as



Avon Park routs Miners


BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK The good
news is Fort Meade got a
chance to view the wide variety
of gymnasiums in Avon Park.
After moving to the Avon
Park Middle School gym due to
re-flooring at the high school,
the game was moved to its third
site the Avon Park
Recreational Center
Saturday afternoon because of
leaking from the roof shortly
after tip-off.
But when it came time to
actually play the game, the bad
news came as Avon Park (8-2)
continued to roll as Highlands
County's hottest commodity,
slamming the Miners 70-15.
"I'm pleased with what were
doing," Avon Park head coach
Eric Zwayer said. "It was really


a good day in pre-game and I
thought we did a good job
rebounding offensively getting
put-backs.
"Every time we step on the
floor, no matter if we're playing
a Fort Meade or a Booker, we
Avon Park try to play our
game plan."
7 And Fort
SMeade's fans
Fort Meade were just telling it
51like it was.
15 "Let's just get
to 10," onie
woman bellowed. "We've got
to get at least 10 points today."
If that was the Miners' one
true goal, then it was a good
day when they finally broke
into double-digits with 6:24
remaining in the third quarter.
Regarding the actual out-
come of the game, however, it


was a better day for the Avon
Park Red Devils. Every player
on the :roster scored, led by
Patrick Menzies' 19 points.
Menies, who grabbed all six
of his team's rebounds in the
first quarter on his way to 14
overall, highlighted the night
with three dunks, the first on an
alley-oop from Rafael Johnson,
who bounced it of the back-
boardinto Menzies' hands, and
the others coming later when
their only purpose served as
justification for the price of
admission.
"I'm glad that they get to do
that idJnk,',. because they've
worked so hard 'to get the
chance to show off a little bit,
but we're not trying to show
anybody up or run up to score.

2005 South-Central Florida All-Star Football Classic


Ricky Sylvester (top photo) of North Port drags a pair of
Central defenders across the goal line for a South touch-
down in the second quarter of the Seventh Annual South-
Central Florida All-Star Football Classic at Firemen's Field
on Saturday. Rafael Johnson (right photo) of Avon Park
can't quite come down with a pass from Sebring's Chris
Welborne as Nathaniel Kelly of Moore Haven defends in the
first quarter. The game, which featured players from Avon
Park, Bartow, Frostproof, Fort Meade, Haines City, Hardee,
Okeechobee, M ulberry and Sebring high schools on the
Central and players from Charlotte, DeSoto, LaBelle,
Lemon Bay, Moore Haven, North Port and Port Charlotte
high schools on the South, was not complete at press time.


Wild hogs offer exciting hunting action


Historians tell us that the early set-
tlers who followed explorers
Hernando DeSoto and Ponce de Leon
brought domestic pigs to Florida. The
wild hogs that now roam the woods,
farms and ranches of south Florida
are descendants of those first few
pigs. Those settlers saw no need to
confine their livestock with fences,
allowing them to run freely until
needed for food.
Many were never caught up and
wandered off to start our present day
wild hog herds. Since they are very
prolific, their numbers multiplied rap-
idly and still do todayy: Most ranchers
and farmers are glad to get rid of the
hogs and will allow careful, responsi-
ble hunters to take them. Hunters
should get permission of the,


landowners
before entering
private lands.
On- private
lands, wild hogs
Share considered
domestic live-
stock and the
property of the
landowner. If you
OUTDOORS obtain the
landowner's per-
Lloyd Jones mission, there is
no closed season,
no bag limits and
no size limits while hunting on that
landowner's property.
On somie environmental areas and
Wildlife Management Areas there
are size and bag limits. These areas


have bag limits of one per.day and a
possession limit of two per season.
Hogs taken must be at least 15-inches
high at the shoulder.
On some WMAs where the wild
hogs are destructive and do consider-
able damage, there are no size or bag
limits. This is welcome news for any
hunter wishing to fill his freezer with
great-tasting pork '. ithoI)n shelling out
hard-earned dollars at the grocery
store.
All hunters, regardless what kind
of game they pursue, would like to
hang a trophy on their wall. But they
should kIow'that a large older trophy
size boar will not be as tender and
tasty on the table as a younger, small-

Boys pull away with

pair of late goals

LAKE PLACID Oracio Molina
needed a friend.
For most of the evening, the Lake
Placid goalkeeper stood alone, arms fold-
ed, just waiting for some kind of action.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the
field at Roger Scarborough Memorial
Stadium, the Dragons were
pounding Avon Park's Lake.Placid
defense, keeping the ball on
their side of the field virtual-
ly all night. The Green Avon Park
Dragons rifled off 16 shots f
throughout the night along
with a handful of others that
didn't count technically as shots but pro-
vided scares all the same.
"We did a really good job of that (shoot-
ing)," said Lake Placid head coach Josh
Virkler. "In fact, we didn't get off as many
shots as I thought."
Avon Park goalkeeper David Pearlman
was able to fend off most of those shots
but couldn't hold off the green and white

Girls not rusty despite

lack of practice time
By JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID A perfect way to
finish before Christmas break.
Despite not practicing all week long,
Lake Placid put up three goals in the first
16 minutes of the front end of Friday
night's doubleheader and Erica Resendiz
and Ashley Hurm scored two goals in a 7-
0 rout of Avon Park at Roger Scarborough
Stadium.
"They didn't practice at LakePlacid
all this week, so they came
out and they had fun," Lake
Placid head coach Elizabeth Avon Park
Sottile said. "We are a good
team and we know how to
play (without practice) and
there's a lot of experience on this team."
Resendiz picked up her two scores for
the third night in a row, including a 40-
yard punt that curved its way over the
bystanders and into the net.
"Shie', a fabulous player," said Sottile.
'Sli', been playing forever. She plays all
:hc iiile and her dad is Carlos, the coach,
and she just knows how to play ball."

News-Sun, Sunday, December 18, 2005


THIRD
Continued from IE
We need to stay focused on our
goals and I think we did a good
job of that today," said Zwayer.
Avon Park also had a solid
game defensively, picking up
25 steals and holding Fort
Meade to only two scores in the
first quarter, both coming early
to make it 7-4.
That's around the time things
started to get out of hand when
the Miners turned over eight
straight possessions without a
shot allowing the Devils to go
on a 32-0 run which poured
into the second quarter.
Menzies started the rally
with a-layup to make it 9-4 and
his first dunk from Johnson put
the Devils ahead 11-4. Bo
Comadore added six points of
his own, including a 3-pointer,
and Gerrard Coleman added
five in the frame, giving Avon
Park a hefty 27-4 advantage at
the whistle.
Devaris Strange, who started
slow in that first frame, started
to come on in the second to
continue the rout, scoring nine
points in the second quarter,
most of them coming on fast-
break finger-rolls, along with
two steals.
In the meantime, Avon
Park's defense, specifically
Menzies' four blocks and Mike
Diaz's five steals, controlled
the other side of the court when
Fort Meade fans were pleading
with their team to get shots off.
And the second half started the
same way the first half ended
when Tramonte Cooper picked
up a steal at half court and
rolled in his first of eight points
in the frame.


HOGS
Continued from 1E
er hog.
The hams from these wild
cousins of farm-raised hogs
can be just as good as those
we buy at the market. If it is
excitement the hunter wants,
he can sure get it as it is not
uncommon for these hogs to
reach 200 pounds or more. Be
wary of the larger animals as,
they can be very dangerous.
Boars grow tusks that are
sometimes more than five
inches long and are razor
sharp. They are not hesitant to
use them in defense when they
feel, threatened. Dogs of a
hound and bulldog cross are
often used to trail and catch
wild hogs.
My nephew, Mike, had a
beautiful pup a few years ago
that he was training for hog
hunting. He was such a beauti-
fully marked tan-and-white
dog, I thought he should have
'been a house pet. Mike caught
a lot of hogs with him and oth-
ers he owned. He hunted along
the Kissimmee River from a
large aluminum boat.
When a likely spot was
found, Mike turned the dogs
loose and it was only a short
wait before the yelping dogs
let Mike know a hog had been
caught. While the dogs held
the hog, Mike tied the hog's
feet and taped its mouth shut
so as not to get slashed, by the
1 tusks.
Mike kept the hogs penned
up and fed them a diet to fat-
ten them and make them more
palatable before butchering. It
sure made for some good
hams, pork chops and tender-
loins.
There is a lot of good hunt-
ing out there for anyone hardy
enough to go after wild hogs
and the rewards are great.
Most farmers and ranchers are
more than happy to get rid of
their wild hog problems. These
animals do get wary if hunted
very much and will go to for-
aging after dark ,but there are
plenty of areas where they can
be hunted in daylight.
This is a game animal well
a worthh your time and effort if
you enjoy hunting and
Florida's great outdoors.

GIRLS
Continued from 1E
The only downfall was that
the Lady Dragons didn't get
eight goals to end the game
early.
"Yeah, and that's what they
were hoping for was eight,"
admitted Sottile.
The Lady Dragons (6-4)
,were halfway there in the first
act, however. Resendiz scored
her first goal early to put her
team up 1-0 and another score
from Angie Ochoa made it 2-0.


BOYS
Continued from 1E
altogether as a trio squeaked
through in a 3-0 win Friday
night.
Pearlman's play still man-
aged to keep his team in it most
of the night and a chance to
rally for the Devils didn't go
down the tubes until late in the
second;half. But a few costly
penalties put the Dragons in a
good position to score.
"I have to give them great
credit, they were a much more
difficult team this time than the
first time," said Virkler. "Not
only did they control the ball a
'lot better, but they were a lot
more aggressive."
'Avon Park only trailed 1-0
with eight minutes remaining


That score then doubled on a
goal from Ashley Hurm and a
score from the corer by Maria
Garza.
Lake Placid continued to roll
in the second half, getting off
four shots, three of them hitting
paydirt.
Garza picked up her first
assist of the night when her shot
from the right side of the field
crossed to Hurm who poked in
her second score to make it 5-0.
With just under four minutes,
Megan Fowlkes and Resendiz
then added a goal apiece to cap
the scoring.


the game when Henry Suarez
was awarded a penalty kick
after being run into by Sergio
Duran. His ensuing shot pro-'
duced the next goal when
Ricardo Gil headed the ball into
the net to make it 2-0.
Just over a minute later, Lake
Placid pulled even further
ahead when junior Nathan
Thompson sent his third shot of
the night into the right side of
the net to closethe scoring.
Lake Placid doesn't see the
field again until Jan. 6 against
LaBelle.
"I think it's a much needed
rest," said Virkler. "Over this
past weekend we played four
games in four days and even
with two rest days this week,
we had trouble getting for-
ward."
