City dumps

some trash

service

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING The city will
send letters this week to carpet
stores, cabinet shops, and truss
companies announcing that it is
dumping their commercial
solid waste service.
. Robert H. Hoffman, city
administrator for Sebcing,
asked the city council Tuesday
for permission to send the let-
ters.
The council approved the
non-agenda request, which also
sparked discussion on a per-
ceived need for community
cleanup in the city.
"We've been studying this
issue since 2005," Hoffman
,said Friday during a phone
interview. "At the very best we
were making a very small
amount of money to cover the
tipping fee."
From that profit, Hoffman
said, the city also must pay
employees and fuel, and main-
tain trucks.
One of the problems, he said,
is that the type of businesses in
question tend to perform jobs
throughout the county, return-
ing to their businesses with
debris that is thrown out in the
store's Dumpster.
Hoffman said it charges
businesses by the size of the
Dumpster and the frequency of
the pickups then pays the
Highlands County Landfill $45
per ton for disposal.
"The bottom line is we're

Dumping is such a waste


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
The illegal dumping of sofas, tires or
washing machines in Highlands County is
as good as throwing away money.
"It' untortunite that people are illegally
dumping in'this county when it's complete-
ly avoidable," said Ken Wheeler, the coun-
ty solid waste director.
County residents pay, an assessment of
$130 per dwelling, which covers weekly
trash service as well as the hauling away of
special items, such as couches, refrigera-
tors, washers and dryers.
Wheeler said the v.eeklh tucks aren't
equipped to pick 'Up ith bhicL e:. ..regu!. ri\


lihped special items but county residents
can call a private service, set a pick up
appointment and the county (using the
assessment) will cover the cost.
"It's a great deal," he said.
However, illegal dumping remains a
countywide problem.
Sun 'N Lake Lake. Placid and Placid
Lakes are two areas plagued by old tires
and other items discarded under cover of
night, said Christy Reed of the Highlands
County Recycling Center.
Reed and her crew work with the sher-
iff's office, solid waste department and the
road and bridge division to combat and
keep up with the problem.


"We're all working toward this goal,"
Reed said. "'There's lots of conscientious
residents out there. In some places it's like
an illegal dumping neighborhood watch."
Even though the assessment gives people
a way to rid the iselve. of large appliances,
the county finds that people are willing to
risk jail and fines.
"We average about two calls a week,"
Reed said.,
Sometimes an illegal dump can, be
cleaned up as easily\ as tossing the debris
into the back of a van or pickup.
Other times, roll-awa. Dumpsiers are

Lake Placid needs dedicated roads, parks


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID -
Preserving the character of the
town may be the biggest driving
force for future development..
Right now, Lake Placid has a
lot of citrus grove around the
town that' could transform easi-
ly to residential or commercial
property.
Residents between Lake June
and U.S. 27 may have a bit of
problem getting through town
to U.S. 27.
"If Placid Lakes built out
tomorrow, we'd have trouble on
Interlake (Boulevard)," County
Planner Don Hanna said.

Residents may say they could
stand one or two four-lane
boulevards, if the rest of the
roads in the area stay two lanes,
Royce said.
If the committee can estab-
lish some strong, two-lane col-
lector corridors through the
town, especially the historic
district, it may establish a base
capacity.
County planners could calcu-
late how many homes that
would support, subtract the
number of platted lots, and then
divide that density up among
the undeveloped, unplatted land
in that area, Royce said.


It would keep any one prop-
erty from using up all' that
capacity, Royce said. Anyone
who wants more density could

first place winners.
From Avon Park, Jerry Lee Wright won the extemporaneous
speaking contest while Logan Palmer won the creed speaking con-
test.

Committee choice

goes to county

commission
By PHIL ATINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING By, an over-
whelming majority, the Impact
Fee Steering Committee select-
ed Tindale-Oliver & Associates
Inc. to .devise county impact
fees.
Besides the fact that the com-
pany is Florida-based and has
staff from Highlands County or
with family living here, city,
county and school board offi-
cials were impressed with pre-
senters' experience and
answers.
Duncan Associates out of
Austin, Texas, scored a distant
second. TischlerBise Inc., a


national firm out of Pasadena,
Calif.,: ame in third.
The county is considering
establishing as many as seven
impact fees at once to help pay
the infrastructure needed to
handle the next 10-30 years of
projected population growth.
Company partner Steve
Tindale told the committee he
would contract out only two
impact fees to'a third party -
water and sewer. They are not
his strong point, and he wants
them done right.
Other fees, he said, such as
roads,' schools, libraries, parks,
recreation, law enforcement,
and emergency fire and medical
services would be no problem.
Bob Wallace, who will serve
as project manager for
Highlands County, said the
company has done more than
100 impact fee studies in

SEBRING The sooner law enforcement can
get information out, the sooner they can find a
missing person.
The Highlands County Sheriff's Office will be
able to do that with a reverse 911 system, recent-
ly purchased and being put it place.
While briefing the county commission on the
system Tuesday, iShenrf Susan Benton .said a
child at serious risk has only two or three hours to
be found safely.
Undersheriff Col. Terry Lewis' experience
with the Carlie Brucia case in Sarasota taught
that, she said
The best part about the system is that it's
already purchased, Lisa McGehee, chief of staff
over administrative services, said Tuesday.
The system uses a "line grabber" device,
which basically takes over certain lines in the
local telephone network, to blanket a specific
area with calls alerting of a kidnapping, missing
child, missing elderly person, or even a haz-
ardous materials spill.
County Commission Chairman Bob Bullard
said the system could help direct people to other
shelters if the one in their area is full.
Benton said one major advantage for her
would be not having to grab office staff to man
phones to call out looking for lost kids or seniors.


Florida over the last 15 years:
40 for transportation and 12 for
libraries.
He predicts Highlands
County's growth will soon
explode from it's modest 2.5
percent to as much as 5 percent
in the next few years.
The company has already
gathered information from the
School Board of Highlands
County, the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office and other city
and county agencies on the lev-
els of service residents want,
and how much it will cost.
Wallace estimated fees for
single family homes could run
$3,000-$6,000 for roads,
$1,700-$6,900 for schools and
$500-$1,500 for parks.
Development Services
Director Jim Polatty asked,
Tindale if affordable. housing
could be exempted from impact


How it works
The system uses mapping software to break
down an area by zip code, community, or even
the 100 block of roadways. I
It can send prerecorded voice messages, but it
can also send faxes, whether voice or teletype for
the hearing impaired.
The system call also provide a call-in system
with numeric .prompts so people canr find out
general public safety information such as neigh-
borhood crime statistics, road closings or safety
tips.
Haz-mat
McGehee said the software can 'project the
downwind cone from a hazardous materials inci-
dent and call every household in that area.
It can also create separate zones for people
who need to evacuate immediately versus staying
in their homes out of the wind, and send separate
messages for each.
Mass call
Right now, the sheriff's office can't afford to
get the module and software for "Mass Call,"
which is high volume speed calling 100,000
calls in 10 minutes to reach as many people as,
possible in a hurry.'
, That would help with natural disasters or ter-
rorist, events, but if the county wants to find
grants, it may be helpful.


fees, but ihougLi' the firm's
answer dodged the question.
Tindale cited three opinions
from three law firms on that
subject.
However,. Wendy Renfro,
school board nienbei. liked
how Wallace answered her on
using impact fees toboth elimi-
nate portables and reduce class-
room size.
He said new growth should
not pay for a level of service the
schools are not already provid-
ing. 'He.' ud\ ised replacing
portable classrooms incremen-
tally, not wholesale.
Lilicjtion \\is .1 major ques-
tion HeJiheir J ncirn-s., attor-
ney with Nabors, Giblin and
Nickerson in Tallahassee the
firm contracted to draw up the
impact fee ordinance -
- quizzed each firm on how well
their v ork held up in court.


Wallace said Tindale-Oliver
has not lost any litigation
because of their technical stud-
ies. Any challenges they saw
were in the procedures used to
enact the fees p
Tindale siod onlN two out of
the.100 or more ihe\ have done
have eter been overturned in
court. Wallace said they try to
get the public involved as soon
as possible, to prevent problems
with the ordinance.
They were never sued by a
client, he said, and have always
done follow-up work.
Encinosa told voting com-
mittee members that her firm
has' done joint-presentations
with Tindale-Oliver, but has not
worked with Duncan.
Her firm has done work with
TischlerBise, but it did not
work out well between them,
she said.


Sun 'N Lake to



discuss security


News-Sun.
SEBRING As Sun 'N
Lake of Sebring grows, some"
people are asking for law
enforcement protection instead
of a security company.
It's a debate the district had
years ago.
Right now, Robert Garcia &
Associates provides security for
the district, and calls in the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office when incidents warrant
law enforcement or crime scene
investigation.
On Wednesday, during a
workshop, the improvement
district's board of supervisors
asked about options for securi-
ty, such as having the sheriff's
office station a deputy in the
district with regular patrols.

'I-


Robert Garcia said the sher-
iff's office did that a few years
ago, then the district decided to
g&'with a private security com-
pany for 24-hour service.
SSheniff"s deputies still patrol
the district. They just don't sta-
tion themselves there for long
period, of time.
Since the district is in the
unincorporated area of the
county. any arrests or criminal
investigations must be done by
the sheriff's office. Garcia's
company provides 24-hour
patrol and extra sets of eyes to
catch or prevent criminal activ-
ity.
Full discussion onf the matter
will take place 9 a.nm., Friday at
the Sun 'N Lake Community
Center on Edgewater Drive.

Mullis charged with sexual battery OBITUARIES


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK A woman
was allegedly attacked, sexual-
ly, Tuesday by a friend in his
truck.
Phillip Buford Mullis, 30, of
Sebring, has been charged with
sexual battery and. false impris-
onment. He has a blanket bond
set at $150,000.
Allegedly, Mullis and the
victim were out at 2 a.m.
Tuesday. She rode with him to
the Wild Turkey Tavern at U.S.
27 and Ponce de Leon
Boulevard in his 2005 Ford
F150 four-door truck.
When interviewed at Florida
Hospital Heartland Medical
Center in Sebring, the victim
said both she and Mullis
worked together for a period of
time and had maintained a
friendship since then. However,
the victim said she and he never
dated and were never sexually


involved.
After parking the vehicle
alongside the road, Mullis
allegedly made sexual advances
on the victim, and she refused.
He then grabbed her by her hair
and body in an attempt to force
sexual activity, reports said.
M mShe was able
to get out of
the truck, but
Mullis still had
a hold of her,
pulled her into
the back seat of
the truck, and
MULLIS .forced himself
on her.
The victim told Highlands
County sheriff's deputies that
she -tried to resist but he
allegedly threatened to knock
her out. Fearing what would
happen if she were uncon-
scious, she stopped resisting
physically, but continued to
voice protest.

Hoover faces

victim

tampering

charge in

abuse case
LAKE PLACID A 46-
year-old woman is facing not
only child abuse charges, but
allegedly tried to tamper with
the victims' testimony.
Jodie Lynn Hoover of Lake
Placid was charged Thursday
with tampering with a victim
or witness, and held on
$10,000 bond.
Booking
reports state
that Hoover
-t works for the
Highlands
County
Sheriff's
HOVE Office as a
HOOVER dispatcher.
The original incident was
on Monday when she was
charged with hitting one or
both of the minor girls.
Allegedly, one was hit 15


times on the arm and once in
the back of the head during
that incident, according to
both victims' statements.
Hoover contended she only
hit the girl twice on the arm.
The next day, both girls
called the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office to retract their
stories. Deputies went to their
home to conduct separate
interviews.
The first victim said that
when she picked up Hoover
on Tuesday from the
Highlands County Jail,
Hoover allegedly told her to
"get her story straight."
Allegedly, she told the girl
that if she lost her job from
the incident, she'd kick the
girl out'of the house and she
would have "no family to turn
to," reports said.
Hoover allegedly said both
girls would need to retract
their stories, "if they knew
what was best for them."
The second victim told
deputies that she was sup-
posed to tell them the original
report was a lie, but said it
wasn't.
She had only agreed to
.retract, she said, to help the
first girl. However, she did
not want to get 'in trouble her-
self, and decided not to lie.

Chase charged'

with burglary,

grand theft and

burglary tools
LAKE PLACID A local
woman was caught and
detained while allegedly try-
ing to burglarize a man's
home.
Also, according to arrest
reports, she allegedly stole the
vehicle being used in the bur-
glary.
, Cheryl Ann Chase, 46, of
Lake Placid, is facing charges
of burglary, grand theft, pos-
session of burglary tools and


When deputies searched the
crime scene, they found one o'f
the victim's shoes and an ear-
ring. The remainder of her
property, including a purse, a
bag, her other shoe and under-
wear, were found on the road-
side, a short distance from the
crime scene.
Deputies also found hairs
from her head in the back seat
of the truck.
At the hospital, they found a
cut or scrape on the victim's left
cheek and bite marks on her left
shoulder and stomach. ,
When deputies spoke to
Mullis about the incident, they
did not question him, because
he made several comments
about wanting a lawyer.
Allegedly, deputies smelled
alcohol on him, as well.
However, reports said he said
he didn't rape the victim, but he
did kick her out of his truck for
lying to him.


second-degree grand theft of a
motor vehicle.
Bail was set at $18,000.
At 8:50 p.m. Tuesday, Jan.
10, a Lake Placid man heard
dogs barking and went out-
side to see a small red 1991
Geo convertible parked near
his house. He got a flashlight
and went out to take down the
tag number and report it to
Highlands County sheriff's
deputies.
In the open trunk, he found
a bag of his own tools, so he
went back inside, got his gun,
and returned to find Chase,
wearing dark gloves and car-
rying a flashlight near his
garage.
He called the sheriff's
office and detained her until
deputies arrived.
Under questioning, she told
deputies she had borrowed the
car from a friend. It turned
out to be stolen.
She said a friend was with
her, but when investigators
questioned him, he said he
wasn't.
Items taken included a
flashlight, Skill saw, hand-
held drill, battery charger with
two batteries, a tool bag and
miscellaneous chains and
hand tools.
The victim said they were
worth $500 and were all in
the bag inside the garage
before the theft.
Allegedly, the car had been
missing since 4 p.m. that day.
The owner told deputies
Chase had taken tools from
him, as well.

Office Watch Commander Lt.

Sheriff contracts with Chastain-

Skillman for space needs study


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Now that the
Highlands. County Jail has
room for more inmates, the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office wants more workspace.
It will also help the- sheriff's
office deal with jail crowding
as the county grows and jail
population grows with it.
* Sheriff Susan Benton has
gotten approval from the coun-
t\ commission it contract with
Cha.stain-Skillmtan. Inc. in
Sebring and DLR Group of
Maitland for a master plan to
address these needs
To figure out those needs,
Benton said, she needs to know
the functional population of the
county, including migrants, col-
lege students and tourists, when
there is more opportunity for
crime and crashes.
The 2001' Jail Expansion
Master Plan was initiated to
meet the needs of county popu-
lation through 2005, but Benton


argued that if the jail maintains
a "low" increase of 6 percent
over the next two years, the jail
will be at capacity by then.
The jail is 86 percent full
now. Jails are considered to be
full at 92 percent, since the
extra room allows for separat-
ing inmates by gender, severity
of crime and age.
* That says nothing about the
amount of space Benton's
deputies have to work at the
office itself..
She also has to retrofit much
of the "old building for
Americans with Disabilities Act
requirements, but many walls
needing to be moved are load-
bearing, she-said.
The master plan work would
cost the county $44,692 over a
16-18 week period, based on an
estimated 381 hours of work.
This would not include the
heating, ventilation and air-con-
ditioning systems or electrical
systems.

Pruning


seminar


offered


today
Special to the'News-Sun
SEBRING It will be a
while before growing season
kicks in for grapes, but it is the
perfect time for pruning back
the vines. ,Highlands County
Grape Growers "Association,
President Kathy Giller will be
hosting a seminar on the sub-
ject today.
The hands-on class comes as,
a result of popular demand.
"We have a lot of hobb istsi
out there who don't know\ much
about it, so we decided to hold
a seminar out at our place,"
Giller said.
Kathy and Roger Giller are
the owners and operators of the
Grapes of Kath Vineyards on
Muscadine Way, just off State
Road 66. They currently have
six acres dedicated to the grow-
ing of 15 different kinds of
grapes.
The single seminar is an
exercise in efficiency.
"We'd like to get all, these
people together in one group if
we can," she said.
Although it primarily is
aimed at hobbyists, anyone is
welcome to attend. Giller said
those who wish to learn the fine
art of pruning need to bring
pruners. She recommends
"bypass" pruners, which is a
style of implement where the
blades cross like scissors.,
"It's going to be a little bit of
talk and a lot of hands on expe-
rience," she said.
They have left some of their
acreage unpruned so people
will have an ample opportunity
to learn how to do it for, when
they get home.
"They can prune as much as
they want. We want to make
sure they get enough experi-
ence," she said.
The pruning seminar will be
held from 1-3 p.m. today at the
Grapes of Kath. Those needing
additional information should
call 382-4706.

ing equipment they sell through

ferent locations.

News-Sun, Sunday, January 22, 2006 7A


Commission will try to sell race track bonds locally


Editor's note: The News-Sun
has been publishing news
about Highlands County since
1927. As a treat for our read-
ers, we have gone through our
archives and pulled some sto-
ries from previous issues that
we will share on future
Sunday. Sit back and enjoy
this Flash From the Past of
Dec. 18, 1969.
Highlands County commis-
sioners are exploring the possi-
bility of local sale of the $1 mil-
lion race track bond issue with-
drawn from the market two
weeks ago.
Sale of the issue, backed by
state race track, and (JAI-LAI?)
taxes, was canceled when the
county's fiscal agent failed to
get any bids. Since the cancella-
tion on Dec. 2, the Legislature
has raised the ceiling on interest
to 7.3 percent.
The county commissioners,
at their meeting Tuesday said
they are reluctant to pay more
than the seven percent set in the,


act authorizing the sale.
The board agreed to pursue
chairman Jean Whitaker's sug-
gestion that all banks in the
county be contacted and
quizzed about possibilities of
finding local buyers for the
bonds.
County Attorney Hue E.
Nunnallee warned the board
that it must sell to a single pur-
chaser or "be involved in a
hopelessly complicated situa-
tion." He added that if enough
interested buyers contacted the
fiscal agent, Goodbody and
Co., the agent would probably
buy the bonds for re-sale.
When sold, the bond issue
will finance construction of
several new facilities: a bridge
, on Skipper Road, second floor
for the courthouse annex, an
agriculture-cilic center, road
and bridge facilities, county
buildings ,at Venus and Avon
Park.
Insurance Study In two
separate discussions Tuesday,


the board decided to study the
feasibility of seeking bids for
the county's insurance. At pres-
ent, the board has a contract
with Heacock Insurance
Agency Inc. and commissions
are divided among the general
insurance agencies of the coun-
ty.
Ford Heacock Jr., presented a
report on health and accident
insurance showing that for sev-
eral years claims have exceeded
premiums. He recommended
changes in the program, but the
commission countered with
naming a committee of employ-
ees to work out specifications
for a health and accident policy
on which bids will be sought.'


Contribute Funds Alvin
Robbins, a representative of
Land Services Inc., new owners
of Orange Blossom Estates,
attended the meeting Tuesday
and saidhis firm is willing to
contribute $10,000 or half the
cost of re-building the main
county road through the devel-
opment from Fifth Avenue to
State Road 66.
Commissioner Earl
Crutchfield proposed 'a com-
mission "work session" to work
out new plans for work on
county roads. Engineer-
Adminisiratir Charles Morgan
said about $82,000 remains in
the road materials fund.
Estimated cost of engineering
and construction of Hicks Road
alone is mote than $67,000.
After a lengthy discussion,
the board voted to build a fruit-
loading ramp on county proper-
ty adjacent to State Road 621.
The ramp had been requested
by Lake Henr Groves Inc., but
will serve a dozen or more


groves 'in the area and reduce
traffic hazards from large trucks

commissioners said.
Canal Maintenance The
board turned thumbs down on a
request from Placid Lakes
Homeowners Association for
maintenance on canals there,
but the request evoked the
hottest debate of the meeting.
Chairman Whitaker main--
tained that since construction of
the canal raises the tax assess-
ment on the adjoining lots, the
county should accept responsi-
bi ll,, for maintaining the:water-
ways.

WASTE
Continued from 1A

release inmates are required to
collect what typically is con-
struction and demolition waste.
"In some places, it's non-
stop," said Sara Brewington, a
recycling center employee who
on Friday was collecting tires
tossed into the scrub brush
along Farm Road, off of U.S.
98.
Illegally dumping fines can
run up to $5,000 if filed as. a
third-degree felony. The maxi-
mum penalty for a second-
degree misdemeanor is 60 days
jail and/or a $500 fine.
"In general, the undeveloped
areas of any given subdivision
are our main targets," Reed
said.
To help residents and con-
cerned citizens, Reed said pro-
grams such as Keep Highlands
County Beautiful, community
cleanup, and the "adopt" a
roadway/area have been created
over time.
Sebring Councilwoman
Annette Daff would like to see

losing money on these
accounts," he said.
Hoffman said the city's solid
waste department is an enter-
prise fund, meaning it relies on
fees not taxes.
He said the businesses will
be given 90 days to switch over
t.o private trash services.
The city will continue to
offer domestic solid waste serv-
ice to the carpet, cabinet and
truss businesses for .$25 a
month.
Jay Grubb, owner of Carpet
Depot, learned Friday morning
of the city's decision when
somebody called him, wanting
to sell Grubb a Dumpster
because the city Was going to
remove its Dumpster.
"It seems like an abuse of
power," Grubb said of
Councilman 4ohn Griffin who,
he said, initiated the cost-effec-
i tiveness study. "It seems like
- he's trying to make it more dif-


Illegal dumping

To report it, call the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, 402-7200: the Recycling Center, 655-6477; or
the landfill, 655-6483.
Residential hazardous material such as motor oil
and paint is collected semi-annually at the recycling
center at no cost (other than the solid waste assess-
ment already being paid). Collection dates are March 4
and Oct. 28 or by appointment.
Reliable Sanitation is contracted by. the county to
pick up "special items" and can be reached at 385-0817.


more community cleanup.
Her comment came up at
Tuesday's city council meeting,
during which City-
Administrator Robert Hoffman
requested to send letters to cer-
tain types of business, inform-
ing them that city-provided
commercial solid waste service
will cease because it's a money
loser for the city.
Daff on Wednesday said her
past work with Highlands
Homes showed that community
cleanup, where roll-away
Dumpsters are brought into a
neighborhood, work.
"The first one we did was


ficult for his competitors."
Griffin, who owns Griffin
Carpet Mart, which is situated
in the county, hauls his own
waste to the dump, segregated
to two groups domestic
garbage and "C and D," con-
struction and demolition.
When the studies began,
Griffin was the council's liaison
to the solid waste department.
"What we do," Griffin said.
"is we try to figure out ways, if
it's not being done, how to
make city government more
efficient."
Griffin dismissed Grubb's
accusation that he's out to make
life difficult for his competitors.
"I have to look out for the
city," Griffin said, noting that
the city's decision affects non-
carpet businesses also. "I'm not
in competition with the cabinet
stores ... we just can't justify
losing money on these things."
Through the city garbage
service as it stands for the next
three months, Grubb said he
pays $563.11 per month for
weekly pickups on Mondays,
Wednesday and Fridays.


successful," she said, noting
that it's been several years since
the last effort. "The second one
we did, we showed up Saturday
morning and the Dumpsters
were already filled."
That program is still avail-
able though rarely utilized,
Reed said, noting that the
Dumpsters are provided by her
office.
However, the "Adopt-A-
Highway, Road, Lake, whatev-
er" programs have helped,
Reed said.
"That's why I believe we
don't have a lot of community
cleanup anymore," she said.


"I would probably need to
switch that to twice a week,"
Grubb said in hindsight,
explaining that because his
crews don't work weekends his
five-yard Dumpster is empty
but gets picked up on Mondays
anyway.
Like other affected business-
es that will learn of the change
in solid waste service when the
city letters afrive in their mail
boxes, Grubb said he would
have to explore his options with
Bowen Roofing or Reliable
Sanitation which both have
containers of less than 10 cubic
yards and more than 10 cubic
yards, respectively.
"I have three trailers,"
Griffin said of taking his own
trash to the dump, explaining
that he saves up to $4,000 annu-
ally by hauling his own waste.
"A blue one for regular trash
and two red trailers for hauling
C and D."
The landfill charges $45 per
ton for the mixed garbage and
$20 per ton for the separated
construction and demolition
debris.

Plus, proposed develop-
ments may have a hard time
getting state approval without
including parks for future resi-
dents.
Hanna told committee mem-
bers that areas with similar
population density have six
acres of recreation per 1,000
people.
He divided that up as a half-
acre equipped play area or "tot
lot" (private), neighborhood
'parks (public or private), and.
community parks for the pub-
lic.
Committee members voted
to recommend this to the town
council and the county com-
mission as a standard.
Under it, a developer could
build a portion of the require-
ment and donate land or money
for the rest, based on the num-
ber of residents the develop-
ment could bring.

that proceeds from ticket sales

Keys, the performing imper-

"I'm a visual person as far as

"This whole thing involves

NEWS-SUN + SEBRING, FLA.


'Director's
experience puts
facility at top of
food service
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
* SEBRING A new food
option offered in town is The
Palms Classic Catering, over-
seen by Linda Moseley, food
and beverage director for The
Palms of Sebring Retirement
Community.
She offers buffet meals, hors
d'oeuvre parties, and assorted
trays of vegetables, fruits or
sandwiches. Some customers
prefer take out while others
want to be served, which
Moseley will do at their own
f' ciliis. Moseley is flexible and
i- happy to do whatever is
needed with just a few days'
advance notice.
Moseley has lived in this area
for about 15 years,, having
moved from Michigan. She has
been in food and beverage her
whole career. She's worked not
only in Michigan and Florida,
but also with Las Vegas hotels,,
having been in management for
30 years. Her hotel and upscale
restaurant background served
her well six years ago when she
started with The Palms.
"De-institutionalizing the
food was my focus and it was
very rewarding when I received
feedback from the residents. At
the time I needed a new chal-
lenge, and. working here has
turned out well," Moseley said.
Recently more and more out-
side people have asked for her
speciall catering. She has pre-
pared the Highlands Art Leaguei
reception for two ,ears plus ai

few lunches for business
groups, the chamber of com-
merce, and Nu-Hope Elder
Care Service's Retired Senior
Volunteer Program Christmas
party.
The Palms is not only easy to
find, but conveniently located
for people needing a special
place to host their function.
There is no rental charge for
any of the three separate dining
areas if the customer is using
The Palms Classic Catering for
their food. The residents at The
Palms are finished dining at 6
p.m. and the room is available
after that time. Because she
feeds The Palms residents 365
days a year, she varies the
menus and her resources for
acquiring food. She is able to
provide reasonable' prices
because of the quantity of food
that she normally buys during
the \ear for The Palms And ihe


is able to pass that savings on as
a special benefit when pla-)nnn g
catering for an outside cus-
tomer.
"A person can call '.ih an
idea for any type of eVent. a
N eddJing party or blihec iie, etc.
Once they let me know when
they want it held, the number of
people, and any unusual idea
they want incorporated for
making it special, I can make
up two or three individualized
menus for their occasion,"
Moseley said.
The Palms Classic Catering
is in The Palms of Sebring
Retirement Community, 725
South Pine St., Sebring (just
south of the downtown Circle.)

A clean sweep can improve health


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Natalie
LeConey and David Weires
recently opened Autumn Breeze
Inc. to specialize in air duct
cleaning, pressure cleaning,, air
handler restoration, mold reme-
diation and treatment.
Their motto is real equipment
plus real knowledge equals real
results.
Autumn Breeze helps an air
conditioner's efficiency by
cleaning air filters that block
dust. LeConey and Weires test
its cooling capacity and vacuum
for dust and mold.
Sometimes when people buy
a house and have it inspected,
they find there is a problem. If
there are black spots on the air
handler or if the shaft exits have
black rings, they have mold.
When the air conditioner is
turned on, and it smells grungy,
mold is in the system. Autumn
Breeze gives free estimates and
services Highlands County and
parts of Hardee.
"People call and say their air
smells horrible. We charge
$12.95 to clean each vent duct.
We take everything down, hook
the vacuum and reverse the air
flow. We, suction all the vent
covers. Then condensed air is

years, but you must take the
right preventive steps.
People generally don't fake
the problem seriously because
they are mostly from up north.
They're not familiar with black
mold and don't realize that it
can cause cancer.
If people have lots of aller-,
gies or live in an older place'
that's never been checked, they
are susceptible. In addition to
small leaks or plumbing prob-
lems, water damage from recent
hurricanes creates a health
problem. People who .have
allergies, respiratory disease or


any type of immune-suppress-.
ing disease should be*especially
wary of this toxic mold.
The CDC suggests preven-
tive measures: Keep the humid-
ity of the house downt. Make
sure there is adequate ventila-
tion inside the home (especially
in the kitchen and bathroom.)
Add mold inhibitors to new
paint before, painting. Use
mold-killing products for clean-
ing. Do riot use carpet in the
bathroom.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


The best


exercise
Hiking is great recre-
ational exercise. Last fall,
my husband Ken and I
hiked with a group from a
marriage getaway at the
Glen Eyrie Conference
Center in Colorado Springs,
Colo.
It started out like other
hikes a stream to negoti-
ate, interesting bridges to
cross. But, the further we
moved along, the more I
realized this hike was like
no; other I'd ever been on. I
wondered if it was more
challenging than I could
handle.
Nor was it a hike we
would ever take alone. We
needed fellow hikers for the
push and pull of getting
from one plateau to another.
With my petite frame, there
were times I needed their
help to reach down and pull
me up.
I've heard it said that the
best exercise in the world is
to reach down and pull a
person up. When circum-
stances and trials come. our
way, we can feel pretty low.
Perhaps the challenge may
seem more than we can
handle.
But, that's when God
steps in and sends someone
along to be his strong hands
and arms and pull us out of
the slimy pit of circum-
stances be'.ond our control.
This truth was uniquely'
illustrated for us on this
hike.
At the Punch Bowls, the
summit of our climb, sever-
al hikers ran the rim of one,
ofthe'bow Is. This scooped
- out rock formation is filled
x1.ith fngid. mountain wjter.
There's a knack to circling
the rim. Two of the hikers
succeeded in their quest.
The third did not.
Enthusiastically, she set
out to accomplish the goal;
but, misjudged and fell in.
She tried desperately to
stand up and help the res-
cuers pull her out. But, the
"bowl" was slimy and she
couldn't get her footing.
At last, two of the men
succeeded in reaching down
and pulling up a hihering
fellow -hiker. I can still feel
the group's relieved thank-
fulness as she stood firmly
on the rock once again.
Soberl', we headed back.
God's protective hand had
kept the fall from being far
w orse than some bruises,
and sore ribs.
The Lord often lends a
helping hand to us through
someone else along life's
journey or uses us simi-
larly. We can praise God as
we join; the Psalmist in say-
ing. "I waited patiently for
the Lord; he turned to me
and heard my cry. He lifted
me out of the slimy pit, out
of the mud and mire; he set
my feet on a rock and gave
me a firm place to stand."
(Psalm 40: 1 & 2, NIV)
And we can sober\ look
back in humility and praise
fpr having participated in
the greatest exercise -
reaching down and pulling
another person up. Selah.

Artist incorporates




1ife into her artwork


By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK
The masks created by
Cindy West are a unique
art form that has evolved.
from a lifetime of work as
a watercolor artist.,
While the overall impression is a
face, each feature incorporates elements
of nature. The eyes may be flow ers or
frogs. Hair or eyelashes are leaves, the
mouth a softly shaded butterfly or a
brilliant red heart. Each element is out-
lined with pen and ink and tied together
in a delicate pattern of scrolls and flow -
ing lines.
Historically. masks have been cere-
monial, representing tribal gods, heroes,
and cultural icons West's decoraiti e
st.le departs from this tradition of mask
making. The artist's signature name,
"SUceO icius" is the maiden name of her
Lithuanian grandmother. A Sacevicius
mask is a celebration of life.
"I have my own personal style," West
said. "I have always been intrigued by
masks. I have, seen copies of African
masks that other people have done. but
this wasn't what I wanted to do. I don't
repeat other people's styles."
West works in watercolors with pen
and ink details, blending colors % ith a
subtle touch, then adding the pen and
ink design details that identify her style.
She has been painting since childhood,
interpreting people, animals and objects
in nature into fantasy landscapes that
have a dream-like quality .
West admitted that some of her ideas
actually do come from dreams, but
most come from what she observes in,
nature,
"I can look at a tree, or a patch of
grass, and see patterns, objects, or crea-
tures.. I take these shapes and forms
from nature and apply them to my
designs."


Artist Cind) \\esl paints the intricate designs that form the features of the mask in
watercolors. \\hen finished, the mask is sprayed "ith satin finish acrylic. This mask
will represent a black panther.


It is only recently\ that \Vest began to
concentrate on mask making. In the late
1990s, she tried painting some gourds
that were given to her by her sister. At
first, she decorated them all the way
around with her whimsical designs.
"Then I began to see the possibilities
of my style of art being worked into a :
mask," she remembered. The decorated
gourds evolved into the intricately
designed masks she creates today
Cindy West is the wife of Warren
West and mother of fotiur daughters:
Ghita, Mayea, Raina and Danielle The.


Cindy West and her daughters Danielle and Raina, look at some of the paintings Raina
has done while studying fine arts at Florida State University. 'All four of my daughters
are artists,' their mother said proudly.


family has lived in Avon Park for 21
years, moving here from East Tawas,
Mich., "'a beautiful little tourist town
located on Lake Huron."

Art in every child's life
West believes that art should be a
part of every child's life from the
beginning.
"'Art balances out the person, it stim-
ulates ever one's inner creativity."
\\est remem-


bered the beautiful-
ly illustrated books
given to her as a
child as influencing
her desire to
become an artist.
When she was a
little girl and her
mother read to her,
she'was more inter-
ested in the illustra-
tions than the sto-
ries. She was
drawn into the

world of fantasy created by Arthur
Rackham, the famous English artist
who illustrated "Grimm's Fairy Tales,"
"Alice in Wonderland," "Rip van
Winkle" and many other classic chil-
dren's books.
"I think my art was most influenced
by Arthur Rackham," West said. "I
liked his imaginary creatures, the
fairies, whimsical animals and other
creative things he put in his pictures. As
a child, I remember doing paintings
with little girls and fairies and story
book subjects."
West could not have chosen a better

model, as Rackham is acknowledged as
the leading decorative illustrator of his
time. His books and original art ate
nowk collected in man\ countries
throughout the world.
Because she so strongly believes that
early exposure to art completes a child,
West has been teaching art to children
throughout her life
When her first marriage ended, leav-
ing her a single mom with two young
daughters, she and her parents bought a
church building in East Tawas.
"It was an old Swedish church, built
in 1898," West recalled. "We remodeled
it into living quarters the girls andI
slept in a loft upstairs. The ground floor
was left as a large open space with no
walls."
.To support her Noung family. West
worked as a waitress and cleaned hous-
es. At night, she took drawing classes at
a nearby college. After a year of this,
she decided to try combining her love
of art with child care and opened the
Children's Creative Center in the old
church. Her daughters participated after
school and during vacations.
She also conducted a summer pro-
gram for elementary school children
called "Tot Lot." Funded by the local
board of education, program activities
included painting, dancing, reading and
going on field trips.
As busy as this sounds, West.was
able to start drawing again: "I was
doing portraits, mostly in pencil."
Then she met Warren West while he
was stationed at Wurtsmith Air Force
Base in Oscoda, Mich., and they were
married in December 1981. They
moved to Florida in 1983, first to
Tallahassee, and then to Avon Park in
1984.
Warren is a lieutenantwith the Avon
Park Fire
Department.
Sp lV When two new


daughters were
added to the family,
West put her pro-
fessional career on

,;. r rn ,,r ,, I.it lhrr ,
her time to raising
,, .,, her children. While
h IJC she occasionally
did some drawings,
she could not work
for hours on major
projects.
"When I work, I like to be alone. I
can sit and paint for eight or ten hours
and not even eat. I could not mix that
with raising children," West explained.
."But, I used my creativity while rais-
ing them," she added, "and all four of
our children are artists."

The spirit of a child
The importance of children in West's
life is reflected in the subjects she
paints.

ARTS & LEISURE


'Wait Until Dark' proves there are


no small parts just short ones


By ROY REIDY
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands Little
Theatre's second offering of its current
season, the vintage thriller "Wait Until
Dark," opened Jan. 13 at Sebring's
Lakeside Playhouse to an expectant
and eventually electrified audience.
First time director Denise Miriani
and her cast and crew have brought
Broadway artistry and luster to the
forty-something play with exquisite
finesse which pleases not only the
spectator's mind but also his eye. Ms.
Miriani's perceptive casting is flaw-
less.
Loraine Biron has turned her role of


H
IN R
Roy


the heroine, Susy Hendrix, a beleaguered blind
bride, into a dazzling tour de force, She convinc-
ingly gropes with the overwhelming forces with
which she is confronted and in doing so sheds
light on her inner resourcefulness and strength of
character.
The villain of this play of pretense is Allan
Grosman, a nimble chameleon who plays the
roles of Harry Roat, Jr. and Sr. Mr. Grosman's
debut performance is as facile as it is frightening
and will be remembered as one of the most chill-
ing features of the play.
Robert Black who masquerades as Mike
Talman, a friend of Susy's absent husband, is
another new face in this performance. He too
establishes early in the play that he is a formida-
ble opponent but too smug to realize how ingen-
ious Susy might become. :
Art Harriman's familiar face in the role of
Carlino assures the audience that they can settle
back and watch this gifted actor do what he does
so well, assume a role with ease and make it
believable and enjoyable.
In the-part of Gloria, Susy's young neighbor
and sometime confident, Kelby Mahoney was
glorious in the role of a tantrum prone pre-teen
and obnoxiously\ wonderful as she threw herself
into her part. ,
The plot demanded that Dant Feathers who
played Susy's photographer husband Sam, be
absent most of the duration of the play so the
three heavies could do their villainy. Dan did
leave a lingering impression of his potential how-
ever, when he acrobatically kissed his wife adieu,
once again pro\ ing that there are. no small parts,
just short ones. Doug Jones and Shayne Morris
walked on briefly as Patrolmen number one and


number two with deceptive adroitness.
Another star of this show is it set-
ting. It's no stretch of the imagination
to believe that you are in a basement
apartment in 1967 Greenwich Village.
Bob Given and Denise Miriani have
brought lower Manhattan to Sebring.
/ Another impressive feature of the
play was it's flawless lighting and
[LT mood music. The coordination
L involved was beautifully orchestrated
EVIEW by Light Designer Thor Knutson and
Light Technicians Stan Epling II, and
Reidy Patty Young. The original music was
- provided by Steven Jones.
The Sound Design left some of the
audience in the dark. Actors who deliv-
ered lines from upstage were difficult and at
times impossible to hear.
Director Miriani's Assistant Director was
Kristin Taylor; Karen Bach and Kristin Taylor
were the Co-producers; the Stage Manager was
Steve McDaniel and the Assistant Stage

ed by.the cast, crew and supported by Michael'
Smith, Chris Friend, Jonathan, Jahnke, Grace!

Author speaks at library


SEBRING Florida author,
Nlarshall Frank, will be appear-
ing as. a guest speaker at 6:30
p.m. Monday, Jan. 23, at the
Sebring Public Library. Frank
will talk about a myriad of top-
ics, including his exciting
career as a homicide detective
in Miami, the craft .of writing
and getting published, convert-
ing true life stories into fiction
and more.
Autographed copies of his
latest novel, "Call Me
:Mommy," as well as his other
books will' be available.


Frank is a retired captain
from the .Miami-Dade Police
Department where he served 30
years in law enforcement, most
of them in homicide and five
years in charge of Crime Scene
Investigation.
Besides solving murders, his
career encompassed a number
of high stress assignments,'
including Internal, Affairs,
Criminal Intelligence and cap-
tain of a 250-man police dis-,
trict.
In 1980, he was asked to tes-
tify before the U.S. Congress


concerning violent crime in
America.
Since retiring. Frank has
authored more than 250 articles
and short stories, several of
which have been republished in
his non-ficiion book titled,
"Frankly Speaklng.'" lHe is the
author of four pubhshed mys-
tern and suspense novels, one
of s\hich. "Dire Straits." is
scheduled to be made into a
motion picture.
Frank is also a symphony
violinist and \\ ill bringing his
instrument to the engagement.


SFollowing tracks of trains through American history


Four miles a%\a. I can hear the train blowing
its earningss "'Tm coming through, clear the
tracks!" Every small town has a railroad track or
tracks running nearby% or even right down the
middle of do%% ntot% n. Every big city has rail serv-
ice and we've all grown up with images of rail
cars, engines, and colorful names in our memo-
ries. Just \\here do those tracks go?,
The Routledge Historical Atlas of the
American Railroads gi% es both an historical trac-
ing of the development of our rail systems, and
maps of \\ here those rails actually begin and end.
It's interesting to realize what a difference rail-
roads made in the travels of the soon-to-be inau-
gurated Abraham Lincoln. "Three weeks before
his inauguration Lincoln boarded a special train
for a 12 day 1,900:mile. trip through 8 states on
o\er twenty. different railroads. In dozens of cities
and towns, more than a million Americans heard
the president-elect."
The change from steamboat transportation of
goods to rail was at its height by 1860, with the


huge expansion of rails turning the traf-
fic pattern from north-south where it .
followed the Ohio and Nlississippi A
Rivers, to an east-west direction with
rail lines running from Albany, New .
York all the way west to Chicago and
St. Louis, and back to New York,
Philadelphia and Baltimore. The
exchangeof goods and flow of humans ..
from the northeast to the' northwest,
and the huge expansion of railroad LIBRAR
yards and manufacturers tipped the
balance in the War Between the States,. Cart
It's interesting to note that President Hess
Abraham Lincoln '-igned the Pacific "
Railway Bill in 1862, and by the end of
that decade 'the Central Pacific was being built'
through California and Nevada. It was a day.for.
celebration when the golden-spike ceremony
joined the east and \\est railroad systems. It took
place in 1869 in Utah, just four years after
Lincoln's death.


EnjoN all the'photographs, drawings
and maps the atlas offers, or get lost in
i "the "Pictorial History of North
American Railroads." You'll find pic-
tures of dining car china, engineer's
hats, paperweights, elevated trains, arid
the fabled Zephyr, produced' by the
Edward G. Budd Manufacturing
Company.in 1934. "Railroads in Early.
Postcards" covers rail historN in New
LINES _York State, with postcards .showing
some busy railway stations,, track sec-
lyn lion gangs, tunnels, e'en a disaster or
link two.
Now for closer to home rail history,
you've got to take home Les
Standiford's book "Last Train to Paradise: Henry
Flagler and the Spectacular Rise and Fall of the
Railroad That Crossed an Ocean.' This is the
story of a rail line dubbed Impossible by engi-,
neers and unthinkable by financiers. Fla ler's
dream of connecting Key West to, the Florida


mainland, incidentally. crossing 153 miles of
open ocean, was at first called "Flakier's Foll,"'
but came to be called the "Eighth \Wonder of the
World." For 22 years it stood as one of the crow n-
ing achievements of the Gilded Age, until the
1935 hurricane, called "the Storm of the
Century," washed it nearly all away., '
So Wvhatis your opinion of high-speed rail? Get
a new perspecti e on the problems of today's rail
lines, by reading Anthon' Peri's book, "New
Departures: Rethinking Rail Passenger Polic\ in
the Twenty-First Century." You'll see pictures
and commentaries on passenger lines oiterseas as
well as Canada and'the U.S.-

and an accomplished classical
singer with an extraordinary
vocal range. He is equally at
ease on stage with Broadway
selections as well as opera.
"Erick Francois displays a
tenor voice with emotional con-
tent and great range. His classi-
cal program received standing
ovations. This young singer has
both charm and rapport," stated
the London, Ontario Free Press-
in a review of his performance.
Entertaining his audiences in


Using grasses effectively


Erick Francois


five languages, Francois is a
dynamic performer whether he
is singing "Cabaret," "Music of
the Night," or a soprano offer-
ing "Evita" or Bizet's
"Carmen."
The SFCC Matinee Series
season of performances is co-
sponsored by Tim and Martile
Blackman/Captain D's Seafood
and Rick and Jean Moyer.
For information, contact the
box office from 11:30 a.m. to
2:30 p.m. Monday through
Friday at ext. 7178 at 453-6661,
465-5300, 773-2252, 494-
7500; or directly at 784-7178. .


With hundreds of types of ornamental grasses to ,,,
choose from and a range of sizes, colors and flower char-
acteristics, it's no wonder ornamental grasses are riding a
wave of popularity. .
Types of ornamental grasses include:
Rabbit's tail grass (Lagurus ovatus)
Height: 2 feet. Very easy to grow from seed annual
grass. It is most attractive when grown in mass displays.
The flowers are fuzzy white panicles resembling rabbit
tails. Excellent for drying. Rabbit's tail grass prefers a
sunny site in average, well-drained garden soil. GR'
Annual quaking grass (Briza maxima) SE
Height: 1-2 feet. This easy to grow from seed annual
ornamental grass offers a great show when it flowers. H
The flowers are silver white and appear like a small rat- Hi
tlesnake tails. They are colorful in the garden and make Coun
excellent dried flower material. It prefers full sun to very Gar
light shade in average, well-drained garden soil.
Feather reed grass (Calamagrostis acutiflora)
Height: 3-5 feet. Feather reed grass is a very vertical, clump
,forming grass. Both leaves and flowers stand strictly upright giv-
ing it a neat, vertical line. Feather Reed Grass is often used around
water gardens and in naturalized areas, that tend to flood on occa-
sion. Flowering occurs in June and July with a compact, upright,
narrow, white to reddish-white inflorescence. In the autumn the
flowers change to a buff color and are retained throughout the win-
ter. The plant is tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions
from sun to light shade. In dry sites, the plant tends to be smaller.

Blue lymegrass (Elymus arenarius glauca)
Height: 2-3 feet. Blue lymegrass is a coarse textured,
steel-blue grass. It spreads rapidly by underground rhi-
zomes which makes it a very invasive .type of grass and
one that may out grow its welcome in a perennial bor-
der. It is best used in open areas. It will tolerate some
light shade, but its best growth is achieved in a full sun
site in moist well-drained soil.
Northern sea oats (Chasmanthium latifolium)
Height: 3-5 feet Northern sea oats is an upright nar-
row to arching perennial with rhizomes. It does well in
rock gardens and as an accent or specimen plant.
, Flowering occurs from June to September. The flat, green
seedheads turn rusty, tani, brown or bronze lasting all win-
ter. Northern sea oats can sometimes become invasive
due to the large amount of seed that falls to the ground
and germinates along with its rhizome habit of growth.
In my next column I will continue with two more


plants and maintenance and care of ornamental grass.

Co-Op


raises


funds with


baskets


LAKE PLACID As
everyone knows, the last two
hurricane years have been dev-
astating to many people. The
Caldium Arts and Crafts
Cooperative had to replace its
entire roofing system. Being a
non-profit organization, this
enormous expense hit the Co-
Op quite hard.
To assist with the funds, the
committee came up with a few
new ideas for raising money to
help in this matter. They put
together an arts and crafts fair
called Christmas in the Park on
Dec. 3.
They also decided it would
be nice to have a raffle give-
away basket for their loyal
patrons. The first gift hamper, a
Thanksgiving basket valued at
$450, contained approximately
26 different art and crafts items.
All items included in the bas-
kets were handcrafted, painted,
and designed by the Co-op's

members did not stomp the
grapes.
With the purchase of one
ticket at $1 or 6 tickets for $5, a
person could enter to win the
$450 worth of beautiful art. The
basket was ultimatley won by
Tess Buccarelli of Ft.
Lauderdale. The second basket
was for Christmas, and also was
valued at $450 with approxi-
mately 26 items.
The winning ticket for the
Christmas basket was drawn on
Dec. 21. The winner. was
Arlene Tuck of Lake Placid.
Tuck w orks for the city and was


awarded her prize basket on
Dec. 22 at their annual office
Christmas party.
The Co-op will be presenting
four basket giveaways this year
on Easter, Mother's Day,
Thanksgiving and Christmas,
which will provide another
opportunity for the community
to help support a worthy cause
and for winners to enjoy all the
great local artists works.
- The raffles are coordinated by
Jeni Novak, a watercolor
instructor certified in the Terry
Madden method of painting.
Novak also offers a variety of
adult and children'" classes in
painting and ceramics.

MASKS
Continued from 1C
dren, or fantasy creatures that
would appeal to children. But
her work is not "children's art"
- it is never condescending,
cute or cartoon-like.
Each painting is a delicate,
intricately designed work of
fine art.
The smallest creatures in
nature have fascinated West all
of her life, and she has spent a
lot of time observing their
habits and movements.
"When I was little, I collect-
ed all the lizards and frogs I
could catch. I chased them
through the swamps in upper
Michigan and brought them
home and kept them in our
garage. I loved watching them."
Then, one day her brother
asked her if she thought they
were happy indoors, and she
realized she couldn't keep them
captive, so "I let them all go
that day."
These little creatures contin-
ue'to, captivate her today and
often scamper through her
designs.
While she is currently busy


Cindy West captures the spirit
of a young girl in this sensitive
portrait of her niece Jessica.
The monochromatic portrait,
done in watercolor and ink, won
first place in show during the
Highlands Art League's 2004
art festival event:-'For the
Benefit of Our Children.'


with painting, teaching and
showing her art, West plans to
eventually write and illustrate
children's books.
"I hope to keep the spirit of a
child with me, as I live my
life."
Full-time artist
Now that her children are
grown, West can devote most of
her time to her art.
When she is not painting, she
displays her work at art shows
in the Central Florida area,
where she is winning recogni-
tion and awards.
At Orlando's Fiesta in the
Park, she won a second place
ribbon in 2003, and the distin-
guished Award of Merit in 2005
for all of her entries in fine art.
She won Best of Show for a
watercolor painting entered in
the Women's Celebration in
Lakeland in 2003.
West's sensitive blue mono-
chromatic portrait of her niece
Jessica won first place in show
at the Highlands Art League's
"For the Benefit of Our
Children," an event during the
2004 Festival of Art in Sebring.
In February, West will begin
an afterschool art class in mask
making for children.
The classes will be in the
education center of the
Highlands Art League. Each
student will get a large gourd
and learn how to clean and pre-
pare it., West will do the split-
ting and hole-drilling "the
children will not get their hands
on a drill or a saw" and then
they can decorate it any way
they want.
"I will present them with
ideas, but art is better expressed
with whatever comes from
inside," West said.
The class will be integrated,
with writing and reading skills,
and West plans to show her stu-
dents some of .the children's
books that feature Rackham's
illustrations. She is hoping that
the experience will enrich their
lives as much as it has hers.
Even if a person does not
become an artist, it can affect
their life in positive ways.
"The beauty in art can,
release the inner beauty in each
of us."

Using trees to attract feathered wildlife


This is the second in a series
of columns dedicated to back-
yard conservation and how you
can help improve the environ-
ment and protect our natural
resources. The source of most
of the information comes from
a publication titled "Backyard
Conservation" by the Natural
Resources Conservation
Service.
For a free copy of the publi-
cation "Backyard
Conservation" stop by our
office at the Ag Center or call us
at 402-6545.
Last week's article highlight-
ed plants that you could use to
attract butterflies. Some of
those same plants may -also
attract some bird species. The
nectar plants may bring the elu-
sive hummingbird to your yard.
Hummingbirds are typically
attracted to red and yellow
tubular flowers.
You should select a few
shrubs and trees to plant as
well. Planting trees, shrubs, and
other plants can provide food
and shelter for wildlife. (And
some will provide food for
caterpillars.) Shrubs that pro-
duce berries or trees with nuts
and fruit are good choices to
provide food throughout the
year for birds.


Trees can also
reduce your heating
and cooling costs,
help clean the air,
provide shelter from J
the wind and the sun,
and add value to your
home. The best trees
to plant are trees
native to Florida and
Highlands County. NEWS
They will live longer,
be more tolerant of T
local weather and soil WATI
conditions, and be
more beneficial to Jennifi
wildlife than nori-
native trees. Avoid
exotic trees that can invade
other areas, crowd out native
plants, and harm natural
ecosystems. A few exotic trees
include Melaleuca, Brazilian
pepper, Australian pine, and
Chinese tallow tree.
Of course, the use of feeders
is a great way to attract birds.
The type of feed you use will
affect the type of birds that will,
come to your feeder. Black oil
sunflower seeds is the best
choice for tube and house feed-
ers and are a favorite of cardi-
nal, titmouse, nuthatch, chick-
adee, and many other species.
If you are going to put up a
feeder, you'll have to watch out


S FROM
HE
ERSHED
er Donze
i


for those pesky squir-
rels. You can pur-
chase squirrel-proof
feeders or poles, or
try to deter squirrels
from bird feeders by
offering them corn in
an area away from
the bird feeder. For
more detailed infor-
mation about bird
feeders and bird feed
contact our office for
a free pamphlet "For
the Birds" by the
U.S. Fish & Wildlife
Service.
You should also


consider providing a source: of
water for birds. Water in a
saucer, birdbath, or backyard
pond are a few different choic-
es. Water in a saucer or birdbath
should be kept fresh by chang-
ing it every few days and'during
the summer you may have to
refill the container every day. A
backyard pond will attract
aquatic bird species also,
depending on its size.
If you are interested in partic-
ipating in a bird watching pro-
gram, there are many to choose
from depending on your inter-
est.
Many Florida LAKE-
WATCH volunteers take the


opportunity to count birds while
they collect water samples once
a month; other volunteers count
birds from their docks.
The information is used is to
establish a statewide monitor-
ing system to examine seasonal
and yearly trends in Florida's
aquatic birds. For more infor-
mation you can visit their web-
site at
www.lakewatch.ifas.ufl.edu or
call 1-800-LAKEWAT or call
our office at 402-6545. Cornell
Lab of Ornithology has several
voluntary programs. Some are
seasonal and some are year-
round.
The National Audubon
Society Christmas Bird Count,
the Great Backyard Bird Count,
and Project FeederWatch are
great ways to get involved. '

The selling of

America

Editor:
The Quest Worker Program
is a Trojan horse, millions of
working class American jobs
will be stolen by many foreign
workers from many nations.
We truly have the most dis-
gusting executive branch of
government in the history of
these United States.
President George W. Bush
and vice-president Dick
Cheney, being the only two of
the executive branch of govern-
ment who were elected by the
people, the rest of the executive
branch were appointed, by
George W. Bush, have all sold
out America to 'the highest bid-
der.
The allowing of illegals from
all over the world to violate our
borders is a treasonable
offense.
I would have the world know


'A library is dead if not used.'

JACQUELINE KENNEDY, former first lady, 1963


that these are the darkest days
of these United States.
Tecumseh, the Great
Shawnee Chief, who died fight-
ing in the war of 1812, fighting
for his nation, had this to say
about selling his homeland,
"and yes he still lives in the
hearts and minds of all
Americans."
Sell (our) country! Why not
sell the air, the clouds and the
great sea? Tecumseh, resisting
suggestions that the Indians
cede. their lands in the Ohio
country to the United States,
1810 "I would also remind
you that we are a nation within
a nation."
I would also remind you that
"once elected," the president
and the vice-president' have
taken oaths to represent all 'the
people and not a select few.
The Bush and Cheney
administration have done an
excellent job of -representing
the rich, with huge tax breaks
for the rich, at the expense of
middle class and the poor of
America.
When there was not enough
money in the general fund for
the huge tax breaks, they
robbed the trust funds.
They have allowed the huge
outsourcing .of jobs to other
nations and as for the jobs still
left in America, they promoted,
aided and abetted illegals and
so called guest workers to
come into this country to
destroy the working class and
the poor.
They- have also done an
excellent job of destroying
many social programs, many of
these social programs stabilize
the very economy of this coun-
try. They have also promoted
that the illegals be put on these
very same social programs.
The illegals who have defied
our laws should all be returned
to the nations of origin, at the
cost to the nation of origin.
Unless our government starts
enforcement of our laws, there
is a very dangerous chance of
civil unrest.
This civil unrest of all the

have had this shoved down their throats
by a corporate controlled Congress.
It would not surprise anyone that the
teamsters or the longshoremen would
close this country down until Congress
comes to its senses and starts to enforce
our border laws and the laws stopping
the corporations from illegally hiring
illegals.
The amnesty granted in 1986 by the
Reagan-Bush administration, started a
race to the bottom for middle class
America, both in wage scale and loss of
health benefits and loaded up our social
programs, collapsing them. If amnesty is
given again we will lose complete con-
trol of our borders. We will have proven
we have no control of our borders and
thus have gone the way of the Soviet
Union and paved the way for China to be
the only world super power.
"All" those in America who have ille-
gally hired illegals-and "all" those who
have promoted illegals have contributed
to making America a second rate power.
In February 2006, the Bush adminis-
tration and the corporate controlled
Congress plan a sneak attack on the
American public. They plan to push
through the quest of worker program,
which amounts to amnesty for 15 million
illegals. If the president and vice-presi-
dent feel they cannot represent "all" the
people, then as we say in the Marine
Corps, "If you can't lead, then get the
hell out of the way." Is America being led
into financial collapse?
Is Congress shirking its duties and
allowing "one man rule'?"
I would ask those who have been so
strongly silent to speak up, for staying
silent promotes "poor government."

Bigger than expected


Editor:
As president of the


board of Florida


Ridge Big Brothers Big Sisters I feel I
should share my feelings on our most
recent fund-raiser, Snow Fest.
I want to start by saying that this event
was a huge success for our agency and
the kids that we serve. We benefited not
only by the revenue generated but also by
the fact that our name was part of the
buzz about Snow Fest for the few weeks
leading up to it. Name recognition is
absolutely essential in a community like
ours, which is overflowing with with
great non-profits.
We are extremely proud of the event
that we put on. We had a much larger
turn out than we could have ever imag-
ined would attend a first time event.
Because we had not anticipated that
kind of response, there was no way to
properly plan for it, and therefore we
were left with a crowd that was frustrated
by the long lines. I am truly sorry to those
of you that were part of that frustration.
What I hope is that you will feel good
about supporting an agency that makes a
difference in the lives of some of our
local children.
Now that we know our community will
support Snow Fest, we are planning an
even bigger, even better event for next
year. This event could not have been pos-
sible without our co-chairs, Stacey
Donovan and Debbi Carter, our many
hardworking volunteers, our board and
staff, the Lakeshore Mall, and especially
our many generous sponsors who, gave
both financially and in-kind. The biggest
thanks goes to the community for your
overwhelming support.
We are already looking forward to
Snow Fest 2007. Thanks again' to every-'
one involved in making Snow Fest a real-
ity for Florida Ridge Big Brothers Big
Sisters.

Win over McKeel
is Young's 200th in
Highlands County
By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID -
Whether or not Lake Placid
High School's basketball
team is truly the best-kept
secret in Highlands County
or even central Florida
remains open to discussion,
even after ,the Green
Dragons whooped up on
Lakeland's McKeel
Academy 68-43 Friday
night.
Head coach Steve Young
leans toward the larger area
and the fans loving the play
of the Dragons are for sure
about the county. All
involved with the Green
Dragons agree that it feels
wonderful to be a perfect 4-
0 in the district and 12-5
overall after opening the
season against some huge
Class 5A teams like Martin
County and Lakeland.
Young went through the
motions from the bench,
but his play-
Lake Placid ers went into
the game
with their
McKeel own agenda,
i. -5" which was to
Splay their
best garmpe in


their head
coach got his
200th career
coaching vic-
YOUNG tory as a
Highlands
County basketball coach'.
Seniors Jovonni Shuler
and Yurrie Robinson
stepped up as usual in the
scoring department, hitting
for 21 and 15 points
respectively. But the
Dragons were firing on all
cylinders Friday night anid
6-foot-6 center Jan Valk
was his usual dominating
self under the basket and
Quay Crenshaw got the net
warmed up with two first-
period 3-pointers.
"We played a good, solid
game," said Young, who
also coached at Sebring
High School in the 1980s
and '90s, after thanking his
players in the dressing
room. "That's one of the
only games we've played
man-to-man totally.
"That was my 200th win
as a coach in Highlands
County. The team knew
about it and said they didn't
want to leave me stuck on
199. I thanked them for it."
Justin Renard opened the
game with a basket for the
visiting- Wildcats for their
only lead of the game, but
Valk countered with a goal
to trigger a 9-0 scoring run
punctuated by Crenshaw's.

Special to the News-Sun
Thursday's action in the Sebring
Seniors Softball League at Lake June
Park in Lake Placid resulted in Miler
Central Air out-slugging the Silent
Salesman 26-20.
The Salesman scored the maximum
allowable five runs per inning four times
and Miller's accomplished the feat five
times. Rod Palmer's four hits (including
two triples) and Bob Fees four hits
(including a triple and a double) paced
the winners. Tommy Walsh and Glenn
Minnick homered and Howard Carney
chipped in a homer and three hits for
Miller.

Streaks fall in final


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING A halftime
pep talk wasn't enough to
inspire a Sebring goal for the
Lady Blue Streaks, who lost
2-0 to undefeated Palmetto
Friday night in the District
10-4A championship match.
The Tigers scored their sec-
ond and final goal by the 14th
minute, holding the Blue
Streaks' to nil the rest of the
way to secure the title.
"I'll take being the under-
dog any day," head coach
Kate Miller told her, Lady
Streaks during the half, when
she admonished them to move
to the ball and communicate
with each other.
The teams last met Dec. 8
at Firemen's Field, when.
Palmetto handed Sebring their
second loss of the season.
Their first loss was on the
road Nov. 21 in the Tigers'
territory.


After trophy presentations,
Miller spoke well of her team
and gave credit where due.
"They gave all heart," she
said. "Two-zero? I'm not
upset with that score. It was 4-
1 the last time we played
them."
Miller said it was a hard-
fought game
Palmetto against a team
2 featuring a
"phenomenal"
Sebring keeper.
During the
first half, Miller
said she saw
problems with the team call-
ing each other off the ball or
two blue shirts fighting each
other for the ball.
'"We lost, nothing here
tonight," Miller said after an
emotional second-place tro-
phy ceremony. "Except the
home-field advantage and,

Sebring shoots down Tigers


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
.SEBRING The Blue Streaks played keep-
away Friday night against Palmetto.
No, Sebring didn't run the four-corners
offense. The Streaks' version of keep-away was
making the Tigers keep the ball away from lead-.
ing scorer Joe Hills in the paint and forcing the
visitors to settle for perimeter shots.
The strategy worked to perfection, as Hill was
limited to just 10 points while the Streaks landed
four players in double figures for a 55-45 win
against their District 10-4A rivals.
The Streaks (8-11 overall, 4-5 in the district)
did a good job of working the ball inside to Luke
Birge and Travise Portee, but it was scoring from
outside the paint that spelled the difference for
Sebring as Birge, Kyle Hoffner and A.C. Wilson
had their jump shots working.
Hoffner ended up with 16 points, Wilson had
15, Birge had 1.1 and Portee had 11 points and 10
rebounds.
"We're shooting the ball very well, I just hope
we keep on shooting it," Sebring coach Princeton


Harris. "We're playing pretty good right now. We
shot 60 percent against Avon Park (in a 58-53 win
on Tuesday). I don't know what it was tonight,
but I know it was pretty good."
With Hill taken out of the action, the Tigers
(13-6, 4-5) had to work the ball around the
perimeter and were forced to launch a bevy of 3-

pointers, most of whichmissed as
they shot an abysmal 5-of-17 from
behind the arc in the first half and
just 6-of-28 for the game. Shed
Haynes hit three of those long-
range shots to finish with a game-
high 17 points, but it wasn't
enough.


"Usually we hit pretty well from the perime-
ter," Palmetto coach Kenny Ansbro said. "They
doubled down on my big kid he's averaging
23 points and 15 rebounds a game so they had
a good game plan. They did what they were sup-
posed to do, we just didn't hit the outside shots
like we have been and we took way too many of
.them."

Lady Streaks

finish district

undefeated
News-Sun
PALMETTO It may
have been a below-average
performance for the Sebring
Lady Blue Streaks Friday
night. but it v.as still plenty
good enough to earn them a
perfect run through District
10-4A.
The' fifth-ijnked Streaks
struggled in the -first half:
before turning up the heat in
the final two quarters to
take a 49-29 win at
Palmetto, improving to 17-
0 overall and finishing tihe
district slate 12-0 to earn
the top seed in the district
tourney, which opens Feb. 2
in Sebring.
Brittany Bullock led
Sebring with 13 points and
Rachel Ashley had 11.
Whitney Lee
and Shakinah Sebring
Crumity both
scored 8 for
the Streaks. Palmnelto
"The, first
half, we
couldn't buy
a basket. We were real
tight,". Sebring coach
Robert Sampson said, refer-
ring to his team's 18-11 lead
at intermission.
"Both teams were really
uptight. (Palmetto) played
with'a lot of emotion at the
beginning of the game and
they were a little more
aggressive than we were."
Sampson said the Streaks
settled down in the second
half and played much better
basketball.
"We scored 17 points in
the third quarter and 14 in
the fourth quarter and had
Shakinah sitting on the
bench with four fouls and
Brenita (Grant) had four
fouls most of the third quar-
ter. I thought the girls
played very well tonight."
Sebring returns to action
Monday night with a game
at Lake Placid.

Salesman also stood tall as John Huntley
and Max Glenn were both 5-for-5,

SHOOTS
Continued from 1E
Portee scored six points in
the first quarter and Wilson
tacked on five straight points in
the final minute of the frame to
stake Sebring to an 18-8 lead at
the first stop, and the Streaks
were in control the rest of the
way.
They closed the first half on
an 11-1 run for a 34-20 cushion
and led by as much as 19 in the
third quarter before Palmetto
closed the gap a little in the
final quarter.
While the Streaks' shooting
impressed Harris, it was the
play of Portee on the inside that
drew praise from the coach.
"The spark of our team right
now has been Travise Portee,"
he said. "He had a double-dou-
ble tonight. He's doing a great
job for us right now. He's com-
ing around."
If anything, Sebring's win -
which avenged a 51-49 loss at
Palmetto earlier this season -
just illustrated how entertaining
the district tournament that
opens Feb. 6 in Sebring could
be. Third-ranked Sarasota

Night can be right for bass


SCOTT DRESSELNews-Sun
Sebring's T.J. Williams tries to keep control of the ball under pres-
sure from Palmetto's Joe Hills Friday night.


Booker is the clear favorite to-
win the title, but the race for the
other spot in the final should be
a good one. Avon Park and
DeSoto are tied for second with
6-3 with Palmetto and Sebring
close behind followed by
Hardee. The only team that
doesn't have a shot at the title is

Girls Weightlifting


the first-year Pirates Braden
River.
"It's going to come down to
these kind of games and who
can hit the shots to win those
games," Ansbro said.
"It's definitely going to be
one you want to come and see,"
Harris added.


Lady Devils win Travis Todd Invitational


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK The host Lady Red Devils
placed in one more weight class than the LaBelle
Cowgirls, which proved to be. the difference in
the Travis Todd Invitational Thursday night.
Avon Park edged LaBelle 39-38 to take first
place in the seven-team event, with Sebring not
far behind with 35 points for third. Lake Placid,
finished fifth with 12 points.
Junior Anachelle Mejias led the way for the
Devils,. winning the 183-pound class by 85
pounds with a 345-pound total, bench-pressing


190 pounds which tied her own state record
set at last season's state meet and getting 155
pounds in the clean-and-jerk.
Also winning her weight class for the Devils
was Heather Watson at 199 pounds with a 120
(bench)-110 (clean-and-jerk)-240 total.
For Sebring, Selma Youries won the 154-
pound title (120-115-235), Morgan Anderson
won the 129-pound class (130-110-145) and
Katie Heston took the 110-pound title (105-90-
195).
Nicole Weeks of Lake Placid (95-105-205)
was the top lifter in the 1l9-pound class.


Most bass anglers fish in the
daylight hours, but night fish-
ing can be very productive on
some lakes all year long.
Bright sunlight during the
day will chase bass into deep
water or into the shady cover
of thick weedbeds, which
makes it harder to reach them
with a bait or lure. But after
dark, .those fish will come up
from the depths and out of the
heavy weedbeds to feed.
The bass can't easily distin-
guish an artificial bait from a .
real live bait as they can only
see the shape or silhouette in
the dark, which is a distinct
advantage. Since the fish has
only the sound and shadow to
chase, he will not be so shy
about attacking the bait.
I always thought that darkest
nights were better for night
fishing, but during my forays
after sundown, I found that
moonlit nights produced about
equally with the darker nights.
If you've never fished at
night and want to give it a try,
there are a few things you will
want to remember. For your
first attempt, pick a moonlit
night and don't attempt to stay
out for an extended time.
Midnight or shortly after
should give you plenty of time
to put something in the
livewell.
Don't go alone, take a part-
ner for safety's sake. And
remember there are skeeters
out there, so take your bug
repellent.
Rigging more than one rod
and .picking lures before start-
ing out will save time'and
eliminate fumbling around in
the dark. Changing lures and
tying knots can be difficult

when using a flashlight. Pick
those lures you will be using
and place them in the most
accessible spot in the tackle
box to save time and cut down
on noise.
Noise can spook the bass,
so it is necessary to be as quiet
as possible. Even an aluminum
boat doesn't need to be noisy.
Carpeting, whether-installed or
just laying on the floor, will
deaden most noise.
Even with the moonlight,
you will need some kind of
artificial light. A flashlight will
do if you are careful not to let
it shine outside of your boat.
Black lights are great because
you can see your line very
clearly and the black light does
not penetrate the water arid
scare the fish, but you'll need
the flashlight for tying knots
and searching through your
tackle box for lures.
Once your eyes get accus-
tomed to the dark, you'll be
able to see well enouglhto find
. things in the boat Just don't
look at the&beam of the flash-
light or you'll need a few min-
utes for,your eyes to readjust.
to the darkness. '


When casting, you will find
that judging distance is a little
difficult. Sometimes you won't
know if your lure went where
you intended until you hear the
splash ... or nothing at all. If
you hear nothing at all, your
lure is probably in a bush or
tree.
If you hear a thud, you hit
the bank.
It is better to use a heavier
line for night fishing, and
being sure to have enough line
to subdue a larger bass is nec-
essary. The heavier line will
not deter shy fish because the
bass are not going to see the
line, anyway.
When choosing baits, top-
water lures are the top choice
because the fish only sees a sil-
houette on the water. As for
color, almost any will suffice,
but black is better as the black
lure will make a more predom-
inate shadow,
This is also a good time for
a spinnerbait. It is more easily
retrieved when it winds up far
from its intended mark, and
hopping them along the bottom
or working them around the
edges of weedbeds will take
night-feeding bass.
For the angler with patience,
worms bumped slowly along
the bottom are a also good
choice.
With a little before-hand
preparation, night fishing With
a friend can be very.enjoyable.
Whatever you choose in the
way of lines, baits or boats,
good luck and be sure to wear
that life jacket.

tie state playoffs with a 14-4-1
overall record. Palmetto

S perfect 17-0 record and the

" The pitch at Firemen's Field
was a relatively level playing
field as the ball spent near equal
time on either side of the center
line in a physical game from
toth teams.


Sebring forward Samantha,
Mitchell was yellow-carded in
the 50th minute of play for
unsportsman-like behavior after
she pushed an opponent to the
ground. The warning, one step
below ejection by a red card,
was matched near the end of the
game when 'a Palmetto player
was similarly sanctioned.
"Is this the best we've held
them to all year?" Miller asked
her team after the game. "It's
nothing to be ashamed of. Hey,
we might see them again."
If they do, Miller gets her
