Technology helps k eep



schools ahead of curve
sc oo s.


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING At the school district the department is
called Management Information Systems, otherwise
known as MIS. Even the name is off putting and stiff.
Perhaps the awkward title reflects the department's pri-
mary responsibility, which is assessment and accountabili-
ty. Bean counters are notoriously precise.
But this Management Information Systems is responsi-
ble for more than collecung and adding up numbers. it
keeps its district and its schools, on the cutting edge of
technology.
And that takes creativity, imagination and resourceful-
ness.
It may not be a coincidence that the current coordinator.
Rebecca Fleck, was at one time pnncipal at Lake Placid
Middle School, an occupation that requires those \er)
qualities.
In fact, the district has a reputation for thinking ahead.
For example. establishing a fiber optic network that is the
envy of some other school districts. Fleck said.
Because of that investment, made two and a halfyears
ago when Sprint was running fiber optic cable down U.S.
27. the district has the capacity to do video conferencing
and bring streaming video into the classroom.
, Fiber opics' greatest benefits are stability, the large


amount of data it can handle and the high speed they trav-'
.e! "The bigger the hose, the more water flows through it."
is !' "w Fleck described it.
There has been a compatible attempt to bring technolo-
gy into the classroom.
i Fbr the last three years Fleck has
written competitive grants that have
brought $300.000 worth of computer
technology into Highlands County's
w schools in each of those years.
V" 1-. Called Enhancing Education
Through Technology,. the grants are
S.funded by federal dollars, but are dis-
v': ^ persed by the states.
"What we've done each year," Fleck
FLECK said, "was targeted groups of teacher
on a voluntary basis and given them a
package of a Smart Board, lap top, printer, scanner, pro-
jector. digital camera and an assortment of software."
The teachers, 40-45 a year, agree to attend in-service
training during the summer and two days of follow up dur-
ing the year.
More importantly, they contract to use the equipment in
their lesson planning and when teaching their students, and

CEO leaves

News-Sun
SEBRING Highland Regional Medical
Center is without a chief executive officer as
of Friday when Linda Harrison accepted a
promotion within the corporation.
Harrison spent several years with the hos-
pital, serving as its chief operating officer
before moving up to CEO. She "has been the
CEO for the past two,years.
"She's very excited," Kathleen Border,
director of marketing and public relations,
said of her former boss. ,
The News-Sun learned of Harrison's pro-
motion Friday amid rumors that she had been
terminated and that morale was at an all-time
low.
"'Tlen ) on have one of the higher-ups like

pay impact fees once for the entire property.
The developer could sa\'e pa\ring fees on the

KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Alice Oldham. executive director of the Avon Park Housing Authority, feels honored Friday at her retire-
ment reception at the Ason Park Communit) Center.


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
AVON PARK Alice Oldham will be missed as she retires
from her career as executive, director of the Avon Park Housing
Authority.
'Upon her acceptance of the position in October 1990, Oldham
knew she wi as embarking on a difficult, if not impossible, endeav-
or. The Housing Authority at that time was in dire straits.
"I started serving on the board shortly before Alice," said Lester
Roberts, chairman of the board of commissioners for the Avon
Park Housing Authority. "We had just terminated the previous
executive director and things were so bad the city could have pos-
sibi) shut it down all together."
Roberts explained that the director who had been terminated had
-taken all the records with her, leaving them wondering how much
money they had in the bank and whether or not they would bounce
checks if they wrote any.
"We were operating day to day in the dark," he said, "with no
idea of the status of the organization."
Lucy Derkman, who was asked to serve on the board by the
mayor about the same time Roberts started, also recalled how
awful things were.
"I agreed to serve, and the next thing I knew the tenants were
picketing," she laughed, referring to the condition the authority
was in at the time.
Roberts said things were so bad that at the time there were
between 16 and 18 units vacant and needing repairs.
Derkman made many attempts to reclaim the records from the

Helms chosen
for assistant

SEBRING Rick
Helms, director of the Office
of Management' and Budget
since
1989, is
the top
choice for
the new
S...... assistant
.., county
adminis-
trator.
Helms
HELMS was court
specialist
for the
Highlands County Clerk of
Courts from 1977 -1989,
attended college from 1975-
1977, and served as a deputy
clerk from 1973-1975.
Commission Chairman
Bob Bullard said County
Administrator Carl Cool
may try to set up small inter-
views between Helms and
each of the county commis-
sioners before asking them
to vote on him for the job.
SIf confirmed bN the countv
commission, he .ill fill the

retirement.
County Road
635 on agenda

for Wednesday
SEBRING Highlands
County's Long-Range
Transportation Committee is
scheduled to discuss the
proposed extension of
County Road 635 on
..Wednesda).
The proposed road has
been before county commis-
sioners twice within the last
five years, but removed from
long-range plans both times.
Counts planners ha'e said
the county needs a north-
south corridor bet een State
Roads 64 and 66. The pro-
posed two-lane road would
run around Avon Park
Estates, Sun 'N Lake of
Sebring, Willow Gate,
Sebring Estates, and Golf
Hammock.
The road already connects
Hammock Road to S.R. 66,
running past Country Club
of Sebring.
The road has concerned
, residents in subdivisions
along the proposed route,
but particularly Golf
Hammock. According to res-
idents, there is no vacant,
land for a road between Golf
Hammock homes and,
Highlands Hammock State
Park.
Residents in Golf
Hammock have said a road
would require buying up
several homes that list at
$300,000 or more each; just
for the land to build it.
They also do no belie
the road would stay two
lanes, but would soon be
widened to four lanes.
Previously, when the
county approached the
Division of State Lands
about getting right of way
for the road from the park,
they were refused.
Meanwhile, neighboring
Hardee County is hoping to
improve and expand Parnell
Road, which already links
the two state roads.
After hearing citizens'
concerns about C.R. 635
Wednesday, the committee
may consider possible


amendments to the highest
priority needs map, which
could mean amending plans
on the road.
There is also a possible
agenda item, but not defi-
nitely scheduled, to discuss
coordinating plans with
Hardee County.

Reading for fun




can lead to success


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Children love
summertime and why not. The-
days stretch out in endless
'adventure and the challenge of
mastering the new can be put
aside for the moment.
But endless adventure can
become boring, and the newly
mastered forgotten all too often,
so summertime has its disad-
vantages.
In fact, the best gift a parent
can give to their children is to
'see that they keep reading over
the long vacation, keeping in
shape for the school year to
come.
The public libraries; of
Highlands County want to help
parents in that venture by pro-
-viding a Book Feast for stu-
dents 6 to 12 years old.
Centered on reading, with
music and small craft activities
mixed in, each library in Avon
Park, Lake Placid and Sebring
will offer the same hour-long
program,
Opening da\ for ejch pro-
gram will be special %\ ith a visit
from a Highlands Hammock,
State Park ranger. She will
,bring live (caged) animals and
other nature specimens and talk
about the park and the natural


Florida habitat.
Maria Chenique, children's
librarian at Sebring, will be
conducting the program. -
Each program runs for five
weeks.
To encourage children to
read over the summer, the pro-
gram has a reading log project.
Every time a child reads for
seven consecutive days, with
the parents verifying what a
child has read, the child
receives a small give away
present.
In addition, their name will
be signed onto a link of a paper
chain that will be hung along
the library walls.
But even more than bragging
rights, the most important way
to keep a child interested in
reading, Chenique said; was to
be sure the child had plenty of
interesting reading ilateili.l1 at
hand.
The libraries, she said, have
,worked hard to add to their col-
lections and offer a wide range
of titles, including much of the
latest fiction.
The libraries carry the most
popular series fiction like
Magic Tree House, Goose-
bumps, Junie B.' Jones, and
Captain Underpants, as well as
classics like the Laura Ingalls


Wilder books and tons of non-
fiction.
Children may download
books onto iPods, for further
enjoyment.
Parents must accompany
children 9 years old and
younger.
Chenique would be happy to
put together a program for
teenagers -if enough :families
show an interest.
.Children who are read to
'early in life are much more like-
ly to learn to love reading. For
that reason the library has two
other pre-reading programs
which go on year round..
Story time is an hour devoted
to reading aloud to pre-school-
ers.
Lap .-it describes itself and is
A time wheir parents can come

Lake Placid woman exercises



her way to beach resort stay


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Brittany
Phypers records what she con-
sumes daily Thursday she
had Kashi cereal with milk, two
slices of turkey and celery,
turkey chili, and grilled chicken
on wheat bread with lettuce and
tomato.
Gone are the days when she
drank sodas regularly, over-salt-
ed her foods, and ate whatever
she wanted.
"I come from'a family where
our days revolved around
food," Phypers, of Lake Placid,
said during a training session
Friday with John Manjarres of
180-Degree Fitness. "It was
.hard to get away from at first.
Now,.if I taste something salty I
can't eat it at all."
Phypers and good friend
Angie McCall, also of Lake
Placid, came to Manjarres in
January in anticipation for sum-
mer vacation.
"Angie and I decided we
were out of shape and we want-
ed to. look good for our beach
trip this summer," Phypers said.
"We were sick 'of being over-
weight and decided to do it
together."
To date, Phypers said she has
went from size 10 to 6, losing
six inches on her waist.
"I've gained so much in mus-
cle," she said, explaining .that
better health is about more than
just shedding pounds.
But muscle is the only thing
she received from her sessions
there. An internal contest
among 180 customers ended
recently and Phypers won a
three-night stay at Shephard's

Manjarres said 13 of his
clients entered the contest and
five met their goals.
. "So, I had to go with who
exceeded their goal," he said,

notice the biggest change in
her. It's an attitude change with

for."
While some of his clients
complained that the tinting, of
his contest -- in March during
Race Week and Spring Break
was unfair but'noted that it
separated the dedicated from

McCall jokingly said attend-
ing. race camps at Sebring
International Raceway just
meant that one would have to
eat their sausage without the
white-bread bun.
"That contest wasn't our
motivation, it was a bonus,"
Phypers said as she and McCall
ended their hour-long workout
on elliptical machines.
Before coming to Manjarres,
Phypers couldn't do a push up.
Now she can knock out three
sets of 15 in no time.
Migraine headaches are
almost a thing of the past- she
used to get them regularly.
Since cutting her salt intake,
she's had just one.
"I know for a fact it's the
nutrition, aspect," Phypers said.
McCall agreed. Her husband
Wayne lost 17 pounds just by
changing his eating habits.
Now, he's a 180 client too.
Drew Phypers, Brittany's
husband, has lost 25 pounds
and he's not a customer.
"I have not drank alcohol
since mid-January," Phypers
said. "Manjarres said one drink
sets you back three days. John
is very strict. He makes us
down our meals."
It was this focus on nutrition
that sold the women on
Manjarres' methods.
"We like it because it's pri-
vate," Phypers said of the one-
on-one sessions. "And we knew
we needed to be pushed nutri-
tionally."
Phypers said she recom-
mends those who are serious,
about getting into shape to call
Manjarres.
"If they just have their nutri-
tion session with John and real-
ize what they can eat it won't be
that hard," she said, explaining
that she and McCall were
hooked after their first meeting
with him.. : ... --.

Auto recyclers got into IT at


Jim's Import Auto Salvage


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING Hotels and
motels throughout Highlands
County were booked Friday and
Saturday as nearly 2,000 people
convened at Jim's Import Auto
Salvage.
The salvage yard hosted the
sixth annual recyclers' conven-
tion known as "IT" 'an
international auto salvage trade
show and conference.
Cale Reed, vice president of
Jim's Import Auto Salvage, said
that having the convention on
sight instead of at a traditional
conference facility allowed for
live demonstrations of various
tools of the trade, making it
even better.
Bill Weaver, of Virginia,
owner of *Weaver Industrial
Equipment and Trade Street
Auto Parts, is the promoter of


the event, which was his brain-
child.
"I wanted to have a non-con-
ventional convention," he said.
Having become frustrated
with the costs and limitations
imposed on exhibitors at tradi-
tional trade shows, Weaver
wanted to do something differ-
ent. "IT" was born as a result.
IT has since come to be con-
sidered by auto recyclers and
exhibitors as "The Largest and
most enjoyable auto recycling
trade show in the world."
What does IT stand for?
"Nothing," Weaver said. "I
was just trying* to. think of
something to call the thing and
decided to- call it IT." Some
people couldn't accept that
though, so' they say that IT
stands for "information and
technology," which Weaver
said is OK with him. ,


Vendors; 92 in all, displayed
anything and everything related
to the auto salvage industry.
"We have car crushers, glass
removal tools, parts washers,
computer programs, crushed
car trailers, parts, advertising --
everything," Reed said.
Of extreme interest was a
new technology developed
which, according to Weaver,
"works like Google except that
it is specifically for our indus-
try."
Giving an example of the dif-'
ference this will make, he said,,
"Imagine you wanted to buy a
forklift and you asked your sec-
retary to go through all these'
catalogues and paper clip
everything that has to do with
forklifts I just made your job
a lot easier."
Terry Gray, of Norfolk,
England, and executive director


of World Parts, together with
Weaver, also developed IT
Recycling Industry Services
International, as a means of
keeping the IT experience and
momentum going between the
annual conventions.
Reed said that the convention
not only offers a good learning
experience through the many
workshops available,, but it is
also a lot of fun.
"It's about the only time we
get to see each other all year,"
he said. "It's like a reunion."
Each year IT includes .an auc-
tion to raise college scholarship
funds.
"Last year," Weaver said,
"we paid $100 for car, auc-
tioned it off piece by piece, and
sold it for $44,000."
D.J. Harrington, writer/certi-
fied public speaker, served as
master of ceremonies. Dressed
,like a physician complete with a
stethoscope draped around his
neck, Harrington introduced
himself by saying, "I'm a car-
diologist." Besides his stetho-
scope, he also keeps a handful
of pacifiers, which he said, are
for "whiners."

Lakeview Drive development



moves forward despite memo


H*g Yiel


By KEVIN J. SHUTrT
News-Sun
SEBRING Developer
Arthur Marrero came before
council Tuesday to pursue a
variance from his development
agreement with the city but was
met with a memorandum that
alleged his contract with
Sebring is null and void.
Having secured the develop-
ment agreement late last year
and with Southwest Florida-
Water Management District
permits, county traffic concur-,
rence, and design approval,
from the Community Redevel-
opment Agency, Marrero said
Wednesday that he's going to'
pull building permits and
expects to break ground in 30-


Th6 minutes
In addition to discussion
regarding the legality of the
city's development agree-'
ment with developer Arthur
Marrero, the council attend-
ed to the following agenda
items Mayor George
Hensley Jr. proclaimed April
28. as Law Day;
Honored retiree Barb-
ara Hines, who was em-
ployed by the city for 37
years;
Passed a retiree health
insurance plan that will raise
the deductible but will
decrease the monthly premi-
um; -
Agreed to a joint meet-
ing at 5:30 p.m. May 9 at the
Sebring Ci% ic Center with
the Sebring Airport Auth-
ority and the Highlands
County Board of County
Commissioners to discuss
the purchase of property
.adjacent 10 the airport;
Approved a variance to
the city's open container
ordinance for the evening of
la) 13, hen the
Children's Museum will
hold a fund-raiser;
Designated Peter
Pollard, CRA executive
director, as the primary liai-
son to the Office of Tourism,
Trade, and Economic
Development to serve in
matters regarding Rural
Areas of Critical Economic
Concern,, a program for
which Highlands County
was re-designated in Feb-
ruary. Dan Andrews, execu-
tive director of the Greater
Sebring Chamber of Com-
merce, was appointed as. an
alternate.
Received an update
from Bob Boggus on, the
Automated Meter Reading
replacement project, which
has fallen behind schedule
but is expected to catch up
with an increase in crews
performing the swap outs;
Appointed liaison
assignments to the Central
Florida Regional Planning
Council. Public Risk
Management, Highlands
County Recreation Com-
.mittee, and the Insurance
Committee;,
Appointed John Shoop
to the Firefighters Pension
Board to fill a vacancy when
Dan Dorrell's term expired
March 3.1;
Paid the city's bills.
The next city council
meeting is at 6:30 p.m: May
2. .
The council has .liaisons
attending the. following
meetings:
2 p.m. Monday, Fire
Chief Search Committee
5:30 p.m. Tuesday,
Code Enforcement Board
Meeting
10 a.m. Wednesday,
Long Range Transportation
Council
1:30 p.m. Wednesday,
School Concurrency Work
group .
M 6 p.m. May 1, Joint
school concurrency work-
shop with the Highlands
County School Board and
commissioners and other
cities


60 days.
"I have the green light to go,"
he said during a phone inter-
view, explaining that his
appearance Tuesday was to ful-
fill a promise. "I gave my word
to the CRA that I would pursue
the tiered, five-story design."
During the council meeting,
president Jeff Carlson
explained that the CRA recently
approved two designs for the
projects design "A" fell
within the height, width, set-
back and other criteria of his
development agreement;
Design "B" included three-,
four-, then five-story buildings
from the street toward the lake,
but would require the council
amending the agreement.
As approved by the CRA -
tasked by the city to develop
and enforce design criteria for a
specified district Marrero
could mo\e forward on design
"A" with no action from the
citv council.
The latter itieredi plan was
drawn based on a CRA recom-
mendation that Marrero could.
achieve his desired number of
units (which exceed current
zoning restrictions) without
positioning a four-story build-
ing (maximum allowed under
the current development agree-
ment) on Lakeview Drive.
"Council did not take the rec-
ommendation (from the CRA)
under consideration," Marrero,
said, explaining that he's mov-
ing forward with plan "A."
But before Marrero could
discuss the two plans, council-
woman Margie Rhoades asked
the council to consider a memo-
randum from Tampa attorney
Steven Southwell, of Fowler
White Boggs Banker that
Robert King, King Realty, gave
to the council before the meet-
ing.
, "It appears that the action of
the .:council approving the
development agreement, which
materially changed the zoning
restrictions, was not authorized
b) Florida law," King wrote in a
letter to council, to which a
memo citing Florida case law
Was attached. "I would urge the
council to reconsider their
action on the development


agreement."
Marrero said his attorney,
Robert J. Stanz, is looking into
the matter in anticipation of a
law suit against the city or if the
city halts work to conduct its
own investigation.
"It's absolutely not valid,"
Marrero said of the allegations
made in the memo. "It will not
hold up the project."
Rhoades said the memo sug-
gests that proper public noticing
wasn't followed. during the
.development agreement pro-
cess.
"With that I ask that e\e stop
all development," she said in
reference to Marrero's condo.
Based on preliminary.
research, city attorney. Robert
Swaine standingg in -for .J.
Michael Swaine) said the:
agreement is legally sound but.


at the behest of Rhoades,
Mayor George Hensley Jr. and
councilwoman Annette Daff,
agreed to delve deeper into
King's accusation.
"If a court says we can't do it
then we'll stop," Swaine said,
'explaining that it would be
"perilous" to stop work or
rescind the agreement, which
he said was valid when entered
into.
Councilman Bud, Whitlock
countered Rhoades' arguments
that improper procedure was
followed.
"He's jumped through every
hoop and loop we've thrown at
him and he still wants to build
it," Whitlock said. "I think
we've held the fella up long
enough. ... Our attorney said
he's comfortable. I say let's
go. '

More growth could mean


fewer mobile home parks


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Mobile home
owners in parks might be wise
to check on surrounding land
values.
In recent years, as Highlands
County grows, landowners
have asked county commission-
ers to rezone old mobile home
parks for new homes.
Very few developers have
asked to create new mobile
home parks.
Residents, often senior citi-
zens, own mobile homes, but
not the land. Often the homes
- are too old to move to newer-
parks.
Often seniors can't afford a
new home.
The Federation of Manu-fac-
tured Home Owners may have
found relief last year with the
proposed Florida Senate Bill
984, to provide funds to relo-
cate senior citizens when their
parks get redeveloped.
Again, last Tuesday, county
commissioners were asked to
look into the matter, especially
since most of the investment in
a mobile home is lost when a
resident has to move.
S Residents don't only, lose the
home, they lose their neighbors,
county commissioners learned.
According to Commission
Chairman Bob-Bullard, Florida
law requires a landowner who
wants to sell or redevelop to
give residents in a mobile home
park the option to buy the prop-
erty.
If residents choose not to

buy, the landowner must give
them six months to a year
before evicting them from the
property, and must compensate
them for the lost home.
Often that compensation is
based on the appraised value of
the trailer at that time, which
isn't much.
Bullard, who once owned .a
mobile home park and lived in
one, thinks Florida'law should
make sure landowners give
such residents enough money to
replace their homes. However,
he doesn't want taxpayers to
foot the bill. ...
Attorney\ Scott Letoney
thinks Highlands Count) \'ill
see. more mobile home parks
converted, Landowners can get
more profit that way. In most
cases, the park is lakefront land
and no longer rural.
In 2005, for example, Randy
Herscovici asked, the, county
commission to rezone Viking.
Village in Lake Placid so he'
could build condominiums.
Viking Village overlooked Lake
June.


LeConey handled the legali-
ties, ,
Residents complained about
not getting proper notice in time
to move out. While Herscovici
disputed that, he agreed to
waive rent for six months,
based on a suggestion from
Bullard, so remaining residents
could save for a move.
Some residents sold and
moved. One was evicted. One
was allegedly unavailable.
Even with legal protections,
LeConey said landlords still
-have the right to evict people
when lhe\ no .longer. wish .to
rent'the property.
LeCone\ gets a lot of busi-
ness from landlords, simply
because they deal with tenant
issues constantly.
.This year, LeConey will run
a Law Day symposium on land-
lord and tenant issues, covering
everything from mutual respon-
sibilities, mobile home con-
cerns and hurricane damage.
The seminar .is 5:30-6:30
p.m. Tuesday in the Sebring
Public Library meeting room.

FAREWELL
Continued from 1A
previous director, but to no
avail.
"We knew something had to
be done to straighten out the
whole mess," Roberts said.
Derkman said that when they
hired Oldham, everything start-
ed looking up.
Roberts is impressed by the
accomplishments Oldham has
made. He said, "Ifi my opinion,
based on my years of experi-
ence, I don't think anyone else
could have done what she did in
bringing the housing authority
from a place of near elimination
to a prosperous and well main-
tained one."

people here who go through dif-

HRMC is one of niore than
50 hospitals in the Health
Management Associates net-
work based in Naples.
HMA "concentrates on

nology, physicians and patient


family, came to her reception
with warm wishes for Oldham
in her retirement years and
appreciation for all she's done
in the community.
Fred Thomas,' who retired
from Collier County Housing
Authority in 2002, .said that
Oldham worked for him in
Evansville, Ind., in the mid-
'70s as a special projects coor-
dinator.
"I'm very proud of her,"
Thomas said. "She's done an
outstanding job. This is a very
thankless position and to do
so well in spite of all the outside
pressures is very commend-
able."
"Alice came into a broken
Housing Authority and now we
have a few dollars in the bank,"
Roberts quipped.
Among her many accom-


care to rural areas," Border
said.

serve as director of special proj-
ects. Her promotion is effective
immediately..

plishments with the organiza-
tion, Oldham is credited with
the fact that government subsi-
dized housing in Florida now
includes- air-conditioning.
"She convinced the nation
that people in Florida need air-
conditioning and screen doors,"
Derkman said.
For all her hard work, City
Manager C.B. Shirey said, "She
will be sorely missed."
Oldham, however, looks for-
ward to spending more time
with her two granddaughters.
She also plans to stay in
Highlands County, continue to
do volunteer work, and start a
league of women voters.
"Most of all, I won't have to
rail and scream at Housing and
Urban Develop-ment anymore
- that's my favorite part."


Border said it wasn't.
"Highlands Regional is a
good stepping-stone," she said,
"It's a good place to come and
get your feet wet."
After receiving "good train-
ing" here, Border said person-
nel often move up to other posti-
tions within HMA.
'She said thli.( the corporate
office has .slated several million
dollars to .HRMC to upgrade
and renovate the facility, patient
care and diagnostic equipment.
These 'improvements will be
coming in the near future.

Robert P. Wallace, vice president of
Tindale-Oliver and& Associates Inc., has
several proposed service levels for
Highlands County infrastructure, but num-
bers are "very preliminary," he said.
He's looking to members of the Impact
Fee Steering Committee, the county com-
mission and the general public to help
adjust the numbers. Current suggested
fees for a single family home are as fol-
lows, for the following infrastructure
needs.


FEES.
Continued from 1A
Outparcels would still have
impact fees, Cool said. For
example, Lowe's Home
Improvement Warehouse was
asked to pay for a traffic signal
at U.S. 27 and' Thunderbird
Road, just as The Home Depot
had to pay for local traffic
improvements.
Impact fees, Cool said,
would pay to improve roads for
increased traffic coming into
the county to shop at the stores.

Defining fees
Impact fees, Wallace said,
would be a one-time charge on
new development to cover a
portion of infr.hiniciure cost to
build the county's capital
improvement plan,
Any fee revenue must go to
benefit the infrastructure need-
ed because of that nei de elop-

According to reports, the,
officer sent the bag and its con-
tents to the Florida Department'
of Law Enforcement lab .for,
testing. Reportedly, the con-

'For at least two of the needs -
Correctional (Jail) and Parks/Recreation
- Wallace still needs enough data to
come up with'a suggested fee.
EMS -$36-$60
Public buildings $340-$560
Libraries -- $228-$379
Fire services $138-$375
Law enforcement $206-$418
Schools $5,200-$7,800
m Transportation $4,200-$8,500


Mike Durham said that's an
aspect of law enforcement that
impact fees should consider.
Large business brings in visi-
tors, who add to the cost of,
maintaining law and order.

Indexing fees
Ray Royce, committee mem-
ber, asked if fees could increase
as the level of service increases.
Wallace said yes, counties can
index fees to maintain high lev-
els of service and prevent
"sticker shock" w'ien costs go
up.
Counties may not use the
funds for operations or mainte-
nance, and' must: spend the
funds within a short time, usu-
ally six years, or refund it.
Local government also can't
cross-collect, taking money
from one district or area to ben-
efit another, Wallace said.

Choosing fees
The .comminittee has iintil June
7 to mn-,ke a reconimendaor n to
. t,


the county commission.
The county could decide to
have fees for correctional facil-
ities, emergency medical serv-
ices, libraries, fire services, law
enforcement, schools,
parks/recreation, and trans-
portation, or any combination
of those, funded partially or
fully.
By May 30, Wallace plans to
hand a draft report to the com-
mittee and explain it that day.
They will ,then have about a
week to read it over before
mAAi ng a recommendation June

County commissioners have
a workshop June 13 on the pro-
posal on, will receive a final
report on June 20, and hold a
public hearing with final vote
on June 27.
. That way, builders and devel-
opers will have 90 days to pull
building permits before the
impact fees go into effect, Oct.:,
1, 2006.

up a location on the district's
network where teachers may
file their lesson plans for others
to borrow.
In another effort to stay
ahead of the curve, every
school has a trained technology
resource teacher. They meet
every month except March and
May, and go back to their
schools providing support and
education for their staff and fac-
ulty..
"We feel like the program's
been very successful." Fleck
said.
"For this coming year the
state is doing something differ-
ent. There is not as much
money federal funding \as cut
back. The state then has less to
put out. TheN ~ ill oni. gaie out
10 grants, but each will be
worth more mone\ $800.000
to $1.25 million. We're hoping
to receive the highest amount."..
One goal is to support the
freshman redesign concept,
called Freshman Foundations.
"We want to provide tools
and training." Fleck said. For
example, she hopes to be able to.
provide a laptop computer for
e% er\ three freshmen within the

NEWS-SUN + SEBRING, FLA.


When Goin' Postal can be good


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Goin' Postal at
3609 Sebring Parkway is a fran-
chise business. It is a one-stop
shipping center, helping cus-
tomers avoid long lines at a post
office or the complications of
dealing with individual private
shipping companies.
Bring in packages and Goin'
Postal employees will measure
and weigh them, and give the
customer the range of fees, and
the variety of delivery dates.
In other words, want the
quickest delivery, spare no
expense? Goin' Postal knows
the answer. Want the cheapest
rate, it doesn't matter when it
gets there? Goin' Postal knows,
that too. -
Part of the center's versatility
lies in the fact that all shipping
companies work with it.
The U.S. Postal Service picks
up outgoing mail there twice a
day. FedEx ground, FedEx
express and UPS each pick-up
once in the afternoon. DHL,
which is new in the area and
doesn't have the volume for a
regular pick up, will stop by
when called.
This means Goin' Postal can
comparison shop on behalf of
the customer.
Alan Decker, who owns and
operates the business, said that
the other advantage the private
shipping center has over the
post office is its .two step
process.
At the post office the cus-
tomer and the package are both
processed at the same time.
That means the information and
forms are filled out, and then
the information is loaded into
the data base and shipping
labels fixed to the package It's


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Goin' Postal handled the pre-Easter and income tax rush without goin' ... well, postal. Goin' Postal employees (from left) Ericka Search,
Brenda Espinoza, Gale Decker and Allen Decker help Phyllis Thomas (right) and Jackie Young get Easter gift packages sent off in time for
the holiday.


time consuming and largely
what holds up the line.
At Goin' Postal, however, the
customer fills in the necessary
information and selects which
shipping company and rate. A
slip with that information is
taped to the package, which is
then put aside, for processing
later. It meani. a customer-is-out
in fraction of the lime.


Decker explained that with
the advent of computers it has
.become easy to track ship-
ments. He said private compa-
nies like FedEx and UPS have
Web sites where packages can
be tracked, and that the post
office was in the process of
upgrading.
At his shipping center, for
example, he has a ioate-of-the-


art Pitney Bowes mail label
machine that does much more
than simply print out labels.
It also produces a bar code
which shipping companies can
scan into their system providing
all the relevant information
needed for tracking. It also
prints out -a shipping sheet,
which Decker files in a separate
book, an Ldded safety nei in the


event a package goes missiiig.
There are several shipping
center franchising businesses:
Goin' Postal's franchising head-
quarters is located in
Zephyerhills. Decker has
bought the- rights for all of
Highlands County.

POSTAL
Continued from 13A
most about the Goin' Postal
franchise was the personal
attention,- the president of the
company visited him for two
days when he was setting up,
and Decker added'that the train-
ing has been excellent.
Business is good. In fact, in
the week before Easter "We've
been swamped," Decker said,
"but I ain't complaining."
In fact, the only fly in the
ointment was the number of
times his business sign has been
stolen. He thinks people want to
go "postal," but at $72 a sign,
it's an expensive souvenir. .
He is opening up a second
center directly across from the
Highlands County Courthouse
and hopes to be operational by
the first week in May.
When it comes to hiring new
employees, Decker only works
with the Heartland Career
Connection. "They. do the
screening,' he said, "so it takes
us less time to make a choice."?'
He didn't want to state a
wage structure as it varies with
experience.

Frank Glinski, who works for the U.S. Postal Service, picks up the afternoon's collection of packages
ready to ship. He wants folks to remember May 13 is the letter carrier's canned food drive. People are
welcome to drop off canned goods at Goin'Postal any time between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. and he'll pick
them up. In the right hand corner of the picture is the latest Pitney Bowes stamp machine. It not only
weighs and calculates rates, but produces a label with a bar code,that can be scanned into the system.

The base, which is molded

'filling computer screens, one

At that I was quite slow,
which is. why I stressed out.
I use all 10 fingers when I
type stories at the paper, but
for whatever reason, when it
came to filling n rormatihon,
I'found two fingered typing

mean I was, quick.
What slowed me'down'even

Making gardens look attractive with an edible landscape


You may want a garden that
is entirely edible, where every
plant is both attractive and pro-
ductive, or a garden that com-
bines food plants and standard
ornamentals.
Many "edible landscapes' are
better described as party-edible
landscape; they have plenty of
food plants, some inedible
flowers to provide extra color,
and inedible woody perennials
to help give the garden strong
year-round structure. Broad leaf
evergreen shrubs, for example,
are inedible, and some are even
poisonous, but they are impor-
tant if a garden is to look good
in winter.
Here are some suggested edi-
ble landscape plants and their
uses:
Amaranthus Bold, vigor-
ous plants with large, ovate
leaves that may be green, red-
brown, scarlet or variegated.
Eat tender, young leaves for
greens.
Artichoke globe Plant in
rows as a summer hedge or gar-


den space divider.
Plants are striking in
front of a dark wall
or evergreen hedge.
Asparagus -
This perennial veg-
etable makes a light,
beautiful hedge or
airy backdrop for a
border.
Basil Looks
and smells good
massed in beds and -
borders, they are also
suitable as edging or
container plants.
"Dark Opal" con-
trasts well with yellows.


M Bean, pole Trellis beans,
alongside patios for privacy and
shade, grown'along fences, or,
or for a jungle effect, grow ver-
tically with cucumbers, wax
gourds, morning glories, and
other vines.
Burnet This is a useful
groundcover. for partially shad-
ed areas. It also thrives on land
that is sunny and hard to water.
Grow in a bed, or as an edging


plant. Leaves taste
like cucumbers.
Cabbage -
Looks good in bed or
formal rows and
makes a great com-
panion for chrysan-
themums.
Carrots Plant
in a feathery mass or
grow as gn edging.
Cilantro Best
grown in closely plant-
ed beds near fore-
ground of a border.
Corn Good back
drop for a mixed bor-


der. Nearby plants should be tall
... at least three feet.
Cucumbers Grow bush
varieties in containers or on
trellises. Good camouflage for
chain link fences and stumps.
Dill Plant thickly, to
eliminate need for staking.
Flowers look sickly next to
intensely yellow flowers or
bright green foliage
Endive, Escarole Makes
a good, neat' edging plant and'

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


Fanning

the flame
Jesus, followers had seen
their Lord cruelly beaten,
crucified and buried. After
Jesus, death, the flame of
zeal and hope had been
extinguished. But the resur-
rectiori changed that com-
pletely.
Like one smoldering coal
that refuses to be snuffed
out, Jesus resurrection
fanned the flame once again.
It spread like wildfire when
the promised Holy Spirit
came to indwell them.
Doubt and speculation were
replaced with enthusiastic
devotion and boldness.
But opposition followed
close behind In fact, as they
spread the truth about Jesus
being the Messiah and his
invitation for all to know
him both Jew and Gentile
-the persecution
increased.
Consequently, throughout
Scripture, we read words of
encouragement to those con-
temporaries.
"Be strong in the grace
that is in Christ Jesus," the '
Apostle Paul said to
Timothy.
Then, like his Master,
Paul used familiar word pic-
tures in this case, a
teacher, soldier, athlete and
farmer to get across some
principles.
He admonished Timothy
to share hat he kne\\ with
others who are reliable and
qualified to teach
He reminded him to
endure like a good soldier
\ ho is focused and doesn't
get distracted from his mis-
sion -
Then he painted a picture
of the athlete \ ho w ins the
\ ictor\ crow n b\ competing
according to the rules.
Last. he looked to the
example of the farmer who,
worked hard and righthl par-
took of the fruit of his labors
at harvest time. ,
Paul \% as fanning the
flame of faith for Timothy
and for us. Our day to day
faith %t ill be challenged.
Hard times and difficult
tests w ill call on us to share,
endure. train, trust, obey and
pe\ er gie up.
As we learn. we need to
entrust the truth to those in
our sphere of influence who
w ill handle it wisely and
teach others. As we equip
others, the work load is
,spread out and has a broader
influence.
As good soldiers in God's
army, we must keep our
focus on the Lord and
endure for as long as he
calls us. If we let our eyes
stray from God to others and
their expectations, we won't
be focused on pleasing God.
Athletes train and disci-
pline themselves to compete
and win. Recall the recent
Winter 01hmpics and the
hopeful athletes who
dreamed of gold. sih er or
bronze. They most certainly
had to obe\ the rules.
Then like the farmer, we
nill enio. the har\ est.
"Do your best to present
\ourself to God as one
appro ed, a workman who
does not need to be ashamed
and \who correctly hafidles
the word of truth." (2

In so doing, we'll be fan-
ning the flame keeping
resurrection hope alive.
Selah.

Making music together


Thomas joins First


Baptist Church


music program

By KATHY GRANT
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING -- Worship.. For David and Theresa
Thomas it conjures up an image of God, the audience;
the congregation and choir, the actors; and the staff, the
directors.
"'You want (the congregation) to be participants
rather than an audience," said Theresa, wife of the new
associate pastor of music and senior adults at First
Baptist Church of Sebring.
Neither are newcomers when it comes to worship.
Both from the greater Nashville, Tenn. area, he led in
singing and worship for First Baptist.of Goodlettsville,
a, church in the suburbs with a regular attendance of
about 800 in Sunday school and at least 1,300 in the
congregation. Theresa often sang with David or in
solos.
"I've always tried to treat the worshiping congrega-
tion as a choir," David said.
For example before the formal worship began a few
Sunday ago at First Baptist, he.had the congregation
rehearse a new choral.
"I think that's (worship through singing) our sacri-
fice of praise to the Lord," David said.
David has set several goals for the different choirs.
He wants to see "musical growth" through "sharpening
skills" for the adult choir. As the church grows he
would like to see the choir grow and encourage
younger voices to join.
He also emphasizes a "one choral sound."
"I want a nice, unified sound. Unison singing," or
creating singing, where individual voices can't be
picked out in the adult choir.

David and Theresa Thomas join First Baptist Church in
Sebring. He is the new associate pastor of music and sen-
ior adults.

David also is aiming to develop middle'and high
school choirs and graded hand bells. As for the singing
Christmas tree, "We'll make that decision through a
council," he said. He added that it may be decided to
conduct the tree e\er\ o'ither year or every ihree VyearS.,


so that fresher music can be delivered.
He is looking for talented instrumentalists in order to
form an ensemble either wind or string or a combi-
nation of both. He already has found a couple of clar-
inet players. The public is invited to apply.
"That's also for the community who may want a
place where they can play an instrument," Theresa said.
It's an "open door mentality" in the church, David
added.
Another challenge for him is to attract the aging
Baby Boomers in the senior adult ministry through the
church either through short-term mission trips or
local ministries.
The couple's specialties are as vocalists. However,
both play the piano. David plays the trumpet and has a
bachelor's of music and master's of church music from
the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in
Louisville, Ky. Theresa has a bachelor's of music from
Cumberland College (now University of the
Cumberlands) and also a master's of church music,
from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in
Louisville.
David is a member of The Centurymen, a 138-mem-
ber professional choir that tours internationally every
fiye years, including Brazil, China and Russia. The
British Isles will be the next stop.
The audition-only group consists of church musi-
cians: college professors, seminarians, music evangel-
ists and ministers of music. They have recorded about
a dozen albums.
. Ironically, last year the singing group was supposed
to come to Florida at the same time as First Baptist was
seriously considering David. Originally, the senior pas-
tor, the Rev. Dr. James Henry, was going to meet him
in Knoxville while Henry was visiting his parents
However, HurriCane Wilma came along and can-
celled the proposed Florida meeting, so they ended up
meeting in Knoxville anyway. In any case, the search
procedure also included the Thomases visiting First
Baptist "incognito."
Both of them are used to living in large cities and
admit Sebring "is a bit of an adjustment," David said.

Welch steers kids right way


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING For nine years Leland
Welch has driven a Highlands County
school bus and will soon retire.
In May, 'he will retire and move with
his wife of 55 years back to Jerseyville,
Ill. where they originally grew up and
met in high school.
Although he's transported children
ranging from kindergarten to high
school, his present charges go to Cracker
Trail Elementary School in Sebring.
Because Welch has five children, 11
grandchildren and six great-grandchil-
dren, he always makes sure the children
wear their seat belts. And if someone,
misbehaves, they have to sit in front
beside him.
"Kids always try to please adults and
live up to standards. I prefer the kinder-
gartners best. They're the most fun.


They're innocent and ahl\a, tell the
truth," W\elch said.
Welch enjoys his relationship with the
kids and is proud of them. At one point
when he transported children to Fred
Wild Elementary School in Sebring, he
asked how many were on the honor roll
and then promised $1 to every kid on his
bus who accomplished it each semester.
The school always rewarded them with a
sock hop dance at the gym for one peri-
od if they made it, and his dollar was an
extra incentive.
"One little girl didn't make it the first
time and was pretu upset. When I asked
her 'why?' she said it was her reading. I
told her she'd better have her grandma
help her then. And she never missed
another one. It cost me $80 each of those
three years. It did a little good, I guess,"
Welch said.
At age 76, Welch'had owned and


*1 ~-.

'1got


oper.Jed his own jewelry stores and
already retired once. While visiting
neighbors who wintered in Sebring, they
immediately liked this community and
its rural setting. But it only took six
months before he got bored and antsy
and started driving the bus. He's also
kept his finger in the jewelry pie by
repairing jewelry at Capital Pawn in
Sebring on Tuesday and Thursday morn-
ings.
A year ago Welch was diagnosed with
prostate cancer and underwent radiation.
Just this month, he was finally given the
ull-clear sion He and his wife look for-
ward to their return to their Midwestern
roots.
"I've got cousins by the dozens plus
lots of friends there. They all say they
need a jeweler. I'll miss the kid,, but not
getting up at 5 a.m. every morning,"
Welch said.

Who is your best friend?


Most of us go through life knowing a lot of people, some of
whom we call our friends. But on rare occasions, we hook up with
someone who fits that "best friend" category. And that's what
we'd like to hear about from you, either someone from your past
or even today.
Who is or was your best friend? You know, the one you keep or
kept in touch with, shared your secrets with, after all those years
and all those changes of addresses.
The News-Sun wants senior citizens who are living in
Highlands County to tell about their best friends. How and why
did the two of you become "best friends?" What about that per-
son who keeps or kept the friendship alive? And what keeps or
kept the friendship alive?
You may have or had more than one "best friend" but choose


just one to write about.
Limit your write-up to about 400 words or one computer or
typewritten page.
Drop off or mail the story to Cindy Marshall, Senior Scene
Editor, News-Sun, 2227 U.S. 27 S., Sebring, FL 33870 or e-mail
it to cindy.marshall@newssun.com. If you have a photograph of
you and your best friend, submit that to us, along with a self-
addressed, stamped envelope so we can return it. Put your name,
address and phone number on your article and on the back of any
photo you send.
"Best Friends" will appear in the June issue of Senior Scene.
All articles are subject to editing for space, style and grammar.
Deadline for submission is May 8.
For details, call 385-6155, ext. 528.

ARTS & LEISURE


Creedence Clearwater Revisited comes to SFCC


AVON PARK The South
Florida Community College
Auditorium will be rocking
when Creedence Clearwater
Revisited steps on stage at 7:30
p.m. Saturday, June 24, at the
SFCC Highlands campus.
During the second concert of
SFCC's 2006 Summer Series,
Creedence Clearwater
Revisited will perform hits like
"Proud Mary," "Down on the
Corner," and "Who'll Stop the
Rain." All proceeds from the
2006 Summer Series concerts
will benefit the SFCC
Auditorium Renovation Fund.
Creedence Clearwater
Revisited has two original
members (bass and drums) of
the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
group Creedence Clearwater
Revival who had enormous suc-
cess during the '60s and '70s.
Stu Cook and Doug "Cosmo"


Clifford launched the
Creedence Clearwater
Revisited project in 1995 to
once again perform live
Creedence Clearwater Revival
hits. Though the pair initially
only planned to play private
parties, Creedence -Clearwater
Revisited now performs up to
100 shows a year and has
released the album
"Recollection," which is now
certified gold. The band has
toured North America, South
America, New Zealand, Europe
and Asia.
"In the beginning Cosmo and
I decided that if we could find
the musicians that could capture
the sound and recreate what the
music was about, we'd do it,",
Cook recalled.
As fans who have experi-
enced a Creedence Clearwater
Revisited concert can attest,


Courtesy photo
Creedence Clearwater Revisited will appear at South Florida
Community College at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 24.


Cook and Clifford found the
right players. Lead
singer/rhythm guitar player
John Tristao, a powerful tenor
with the energy to power songs,


initially rose to prominence as
lead singer for the band People
when their hit "I Love You"
bulleted into the top 10. His
voice is raspy and high pitched


and has been described
similar to the voice
Fogerty, who was ti
singer of Creedence Cl
Revival. Lead guitar
Morris has been descr
"the quintessential Ba
guitar prodigy," and h
strous talent unleashed
what a rock and roll co
all about. Talented mull
mentalist Steve Gunner
out the group.
As Clifford puts it,

Historians keep track of 85 years in Highlands


Every anniversary holds spe-
cial meaning and memories for
those involved, but most of us
weren't born when Highlands
County was formed, 85 years
ago this month. We owe a debt
to our local historians Elaine
and Larry Levey and the three
historical societies, who put
together a most interesting book
on the history of our county,
"Yesterday: A Family Album of
Highlands County." It seems
that the wilds of Central Florida
were lumped together in one
3,800 square mile county,
named DeSoto. As Central
Florida was gradually settled,
the powers that be in the legis-
lature realized that one board of
county commissioners couldn't
effectively govern such a huge
area. Since it took two hard
days of travel to reach the coun-
ty seat in Arcadia, it just made
sense to reduce the size 'of the
county and a 1921 legislative
bill was passed to divide
DeSoto up, adding four new
counties: Highlands, Charlotte,
Glades and Hardee.
We can't be sure that offering
to name one of-the counties
,after the seated-governor helped
to pass' the bill, but Governor
Hardee,' in Tallahassee, signed

The meeting will be from

During the informational

Charlotte, Glades
and Hardee each had
one major city for
their county seat, but
Highlands already
had four contenders:

City, Lake Placid and

the temporary county
seat until an election decided
where the county seat would be
located. No presidential cam-
paign was more hard fought, no
votes more solicited than those
that would choose Highlands'
County seat. Inexplicably, both
Lake Placid and DeSoto City
withdrew on election eve and
with a 97 percent voter turnout,
Sebring was designated the
county seat by only 66 votes.
There were some disappoint-
ed Avon Park residents, whose
town was founded in 1886, long
before Sebring. The, first pack-
inghouse for citrus was built in
1893 on Main Street. In fact,
the first citrus growers associa-
tion and citrus groves were in

Because Florida is facing a
severe shortage of teachers, the
Florida Legislature has paved
the way for the state's commu-
, nity colleges, universities and
private schools to create EPIs
on their campuses. Anyone with
a bachelor's degree can become
certified to teach in Florida by
attending a one-year program at
an EPI and passing the state's
'teachers certification exam.

Reintroducing 'Bob the Blob'


When you think of animals
that live in lakes, creatures like
:fish, birds and alligators may
come to mind. But I bet most
people aren't aware of another
animal form that is very com-
mon in our Florida lakes, bry-
ozoans.
The bryozoan is scientifical-
ly known as Pectinella magnifi-
ca, but in our office is more
affectionately known as "Bob
the Blob." The name is an accu-
rate description considering
bryozoans contain a small
amount of pectin (the stuff that
makes Jell-O jiggly) and are 98
percent water. The pectinellous
blob looks like a big ball of Jell-
O with a moss-like growth on
the outer surface.
Although they are a peculiar
site to see, bryozoans are a nat-
ural part of our lake ecosys-
tems. They are filter feeders,
like oysters, and feed on algae
and diatoms. The jelly portion
attaches to a structure (such as a
plant stem or rock) and the
moss-like animals live on top
feeding from. the water. The
individuals are usually less than
a millimeter in size, however
the colony (or blob) can range

Cochran ready to bail out the public


By CJ. MOUSER
News-Sun
SEBRING Nobody wants
to have to call Jack Cochran in
his official capacity. If you do
have to call him, chances are
you're in trouble.
Cochran was born in Hardee
County, and following in the
footsteps of many before him,
settled quite naturally into the
citrus harvesting business.
Seventeen years later he's run-
ning a bail bond service and,
looking back, he still wonders
why he waited so long to get
into the business.
Preparing to turn 60 in July,
Cochran dresses for comfort in
shorts and a T-shirt, and rests in
a rocker on the front porch of
his office in Sebring, a cigar
clamped in his jaw. He could
easily throw a rock and.hit the
brick wall of the courthouse
from where he sits and watches
future and past clients come and
go.
"Back when I first got started
here, those guys (clients) could
look out the window and see
my sign while they were being
booked," he said, chuckling. "It
was good for business."
How it started
"Back in 1989," Cochran
said, "I had all the equipment I
needed to run a citrus harvest-
ing company, but a few bad
years came. along and I hap-
pened to notice an ad in the
paper for becoming a licensed
bail bondsman. I took the train-
ing and paid the fee, and the
next thing I knew I was in busi-
ness."
Having been born and raised
in Hardee County, Cochran was
offering his services primarily
irn Bo'ling Green, Wauchula
and Zolfo Springs, and still run-
ning his harve-ting company.
"One day I figured out I %%as
making more money in the bail
bonds business, so I sold all' of
my equipment and went into it
full time." Cochran. said.
At about the same time he
realized that he was spending
more and more time driving to
Sebring, so he opened up an
office there as well, and ulti-
mately ended up moving there
permanently, although he does
still work in Hardee County. He
now opens his office for eight
hours every week day, and is on
call 24 hours a day, seven days
a week. He doesn't carry the
load alone; he has two licensed
agents working with him, Jeff
Jackson and Zebby Gillespie,
one temporary agent, Reggie
Cooper, and a part-time secre-
tary.
"But I still get up in the mid-
dle of the night pretty often to
write bonds." Cochran said.
How it works
A bail bondsman guarantees
bail for a client if he can't
afford it pay it himself, which
means that.the client is then free
to go while he waits for his first
court date, rather than sitting in
jail while he waits. The bail can
be any amount determined by a
judge, but the offender general-
ly only has to come up with 10
percent.
There is a qualifying process
to determine if the client is a
good risk or a bad risk, and
bonidsmen require some form of
collateral; a vehicle or land or a
home, anything of similar or
greater value than the bond
amount to guarantee their
investment, or at the very least
allow them to recoup any losses


by selling the collateral.
"You have to protect your
interests," Cochran said. "After
you've been doing this long
enough you can pretty much tell
if someone is lying to you. Then
you have your repeat offenders,
and there are some that I would-
n't take a chance on no matter
what," he said, shaking his head
firmly.
"Certain crimes almost guar-
antee that the offender won't
show up for court. Then we
have 60 days to find them
before we have to pay. We usu-
ally find them. The worst for
running are the ones that get
busted for possession of
methamphetamine. They get
high and just don't care, and
you almost always have to go
after them."
Getting paid
The charge for guaranteeing
bail for anything up to a $1,000
is a flat fee of $100. Anything
over that is 10 percent of the
amount, and Cochran gets his
money up front. He does not/
consider himself a bounty
hunter in any capacity. Bounty
hunters are against the law in
Florida, but he does have a legal
right to go after and detain any


person that he has guaranteed
bail for. While most bails are in
the neighborhood of $500 to
$2,000, some can be as much as
$15,000 to $25,000.
"I had to hire a plane and go
to Iowa once, and I've been to
Texas and Kentucky ... we'll go
where we have to go, if we
can," Cochran said. "I've bailed
out preachers, a major league.

charge of lighting for a popular
rock group. He was from
England ... I made sure I got
my money from him so he did-
n't go back to England and
leave me hanging," he said
laughing. '
The statistics
Gillespie has been working
with Cochran for six years, and
has a very clear opinion on the
stauisucs regarding breaking the
law.
"I think the highest number.
of arrests are.for drugs, and then
for- domestic violence,"
Gillespie said, "and domestic'
violence cases can almost
always be traced back to drug
or alcohol abuse. Then. more.

didn't really mean it,' and she
.wants him to be able to go back
to work on Monday."
Cooper added, "If an officer
shows up on a domestic call,
nine times out of 10 somebody
is going to jail. It could be the
husband or the wife. And it
doesn't even have to 'be any-
body involved who calls, it can


be a neighbor."
Sgt. Sean Casey in the patrol
division of the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office
,explained that to arrest or not to
arrest is up the discretion of the
responding officer.
"There won't be an arrest-
every time, but if there are
physical signs of violence there
will be, and sometimes it's in
the best interest of everyone
concerned if some distance is
.put between the couple.
Sometimes one or the other can
be convinced to leave the house
until things settle down.
Sometimes one or the other is
arrested ... and sometimes both.
But ultimately it's the respond-
ing" officer who makes that
call."

In the long run
Cochran who has an adult
daughter in Zolfo Springs, a son
who is the pastor of Temple
Heights Church of God in Lake
Placid, and four grandkids -
just keeps doing what he's been
doing for the last,.17 years. In
that time he's seen just about
everything there is to see, and


doesn't know if he'll ever retire.
As long as people keep get-
ting arrested, Cochran expects
he'll be there to bail them out,
and frankly, business is good.
Cochran attributes this to the
demise of traditional family dis-
cipline.
"Things have changed a lot."
Cochran said. "Back when I
was a teenager and up to no
good, things were different. If I
got caught horsing around in
town at night or drinking beer,
all it took was for the sheriff to
threaten to call my daddy, and I
was on my way home. I wasn't
scared of the cops, I was scared
of my daddy, and I didn't ever
want a cop to call him because
he'd beat my butt. Nowadays
the state has control of the fam-
ily unit; if a kid's father tears up
his rear end for getting in trou-
ble, someone calls the law on
him."
Cochran looked a little nos-
talgic as he contemplated his
next remark.
"Used to be, what daddy says
goes, and it's a sad thing, but it
seems it's just not that simple
anymore."

Old fruitcake looks just brand new


There are some LAURA
foods that I just do I
not like. Liver is a Laur
big one. One day,
my college room-
mate decided to
surprise me by fixing dinner.
She fixed liver. I managed .to
choke it down, but I didn't like
it.


Fruitcake also falls under the
category of foods I do not like.
- I know that someone in the
S world has to like fruitcake,
since it keeps getting made.
However, it seems that these
people are a small group in the
world, since most of the people
I have met agree with me about
fruitcake. I wonder if they have
an "I Love Fruitcake" support
group and swap e-mails and
stuff.
S" A recent story I came across
in my e-mail raised my eye-
- brows about fruitcake. The
- story concerns Lance Nesta,
who was in the Army in 1962
and stationed in Alaska. While


's LOOK
a Ware


there, his two aunts
sent him a present:
a fruitcake.
Well, he wasn't
going to eat it, and


according to him,
he liked his fellow soldiers too
much to offer it to them. So he
put it aside.
Later, when he left the mili-
tary, he thinks he may have
shipped it home to Wisconsin
with the rest of his stuff. Then
he seems to have forgotten all
about it until recently, when he
found the 43-year-old cake in
his mother's attic.
Nesta apparently took a peek
at the cake, which was still in its
original wrapping and tin.
According to him, it hadn't
changed at all.
. Does that last line disturb
anyone else besides me?
I..am not a novice when it
comes to food going bad. I have
found broccoli in my refrigera-
tor you could tie knots with. I
have discovered new life forms


in old food. I know what bad
milk smells like.
Once; a group we had visited
in our travels decided to send us
a loaf of their homemade bread.
They were not aware that we
were traveling at the time, and
by the time we got home, the
bread had been sitting in a
warm mailbox for days. You
don't want to know what it
looked like, but we could have
made a horror movie with it.
And this 43-year-old fruit-
cake hadn't changed? What is
in that thing? Could someone
still eat it? (Not me, I am not
that brave). Would someone try
to eat it?
You know, that is an interest-
ing, stomach churning question.
Would someone try to take a
bite out of that cake? The very
thought makes me shudder. But
in my mind's eye, I can see
some person who likes fruit-
cake reading this story and
thinking to themselves, "Self,
that might be some tasty fruit-


cake!" Scary.
I also wonder what Nesta is
going to do with the fruitcake
now that it has made the news.
I'm thinking eBay; As my
youngest son has said, you can
sell anything on eBay. He could
probably sell the fruitcake to
the same group that bought the
haunted cane. Then it could be
put on display, a warning to any
who still think fruitcake is a
normal food.
Now I know that when this
column is printed, some of you
will think you can convert me
into a fruitcake lover. You are
more than welcome to send me
e-mail and letters extolling the
virtues of this thing. But do not
try to send me fruitcake -
unless you want it to be in my
attic for 43 years.

Small seedlings need


My pepper plants were so lit-
tle, yet demanded my attention as
if they were right in my face.
Their diminutive size reached
into my nurturing spirit as I bent
low to tend to them so they'd not
only survive, but flourish.
On the other, hand, my hus-
band and I have carefully planted
and nurtured tiny trees happi-
ly watching their progress. Then RkEF
along came a freeze or hurricane
and ;the "youngsters" were JanA
knocked 'down. --
Hundreds of thousands of chil-
dren are like small seedlings in
need of tender nurturing. Many are born to
harsh surroundings. Others may be doing
fairly well only to be knocked off their feet
by severe winds of reality.
That's why organizations such as
Compassion International that reach out to
the world's children are doing such magnif-
icent work. Compassion's president, Wess
Stafford, recently wrote a book, "Too Small
to Ignore." It takes the reader on the jour-
ney of Stafford's own life; how adversity in
childhood prepared him to follow his pas-
sion to plant seeds of hope in needy chil-
dren.
'Compassion International meets physi-

cal, mental and emotional needs,
along with spiritual; because that
is where hope is planted. Without,
it, fatalism takes its toll inside
the person. Without hope, the
potential in the tiny seedling
shrivels and dies.
The ravages of war bring
tyranny and terrorism striking
people relentlessly with poverty
and hopelessness.. Recently I
heard a pastor'from Uganda, East
Africa share how Uganda has
endured the scourge of civil war.
and the deadly AIDS epidemic.
This has caused 1.7 million


children to be orphaned. Can you imagine
their little faces?
He and his wife felt led to start an
orphanage and school for the children and
.are seeking sponsorship" to help with their
needs and education.
"Learn to do good. Seek justice ...
Defend the fatherless ..." (Isaiah 1: 17,
NKJV) reflects this pastor's heart and chal-
lenges our own.
In a reserved voice, he genuinely gave
thanks for our President Bush how his
commitment to fight terrorism has made a
difference in Uganda. I felt a lump form in
my throat.


'The adversarial relationship

between members of the press and

the political class they cover is

nothing new, but the distrust-

between the two sides has grown

to the point of all-out war in some

cases.

nurturing

When he somberly said, "Thank you for
your children who have sacrificed and
given their lives to destroy terrorist organi-
zations," tears slipped down my face.
I realized that my own little "seedling,"
my,now grown Marine son, has taken up
the fight for these little ones though he
may not have realized (as I hadn't) that the
fight against terrorism in Afghanistan and
Iraq has had such far reaching effects.
Though the needs of so, many children.
are mind-boggling, this.couple in Uganda,
Compassion International and other similar
organizations ask that we care about one.
Sponsor one. Each one sponsored means
hope and hope means a future.
The freezes and hurricane winds took
their toll on our trees, but did not win!
Nurture and care stood them back up and
now they are strongly rooted, providing
beautiful flowers and shade.
Children truly are too small to ignore.
Bend down, nurture these small seedlings
and make a difference.

News-Sun, Sunday. April 23, 2006


my seven siblings or my parents
ever did anything extraordinary
enough to become famous, but
as far as I'm concerned, there is
no family more worth talking
about than mine.
My father was a big man
with a bad temper and a drink-
ing problem. One sour note in
my childhood is that sometimes
he beat my mother. When this
happened I cowered in a corner,
helpless to do anything about it,
praying he would stop.
One, day with fist raised to
strike, my father felt a hand of'
enormous strength grasp his
wrist.. It was'the hand of my,
oldest brother. Father looked
around to see that his son was
now taller than him, and
because of his youth, much
stronger.
My brother said, "If you ever
hit her again, you'll answer to
ne." Father lowered his arm-
and. see med to shrink like a
snowman in the afternoon sun.
He left the room qumetl%. and
ne\er hit my mother again.


My brother
became my instant
hero, and to this
day I remain in awe
of him. After that
my father barely
spoke to anyone


when he was at home, and spent
most of his time sitting alone in
the living room. He died at an
early age. I think it was frustra-
tion and shame that killed him.
Mother was ambitious and
though small in stature, she had
a lot of courage. Somehow she
managed to send every one of
her eight children to .college.
Once the beatings stopped she
seemed to gain strength and"
confidence, and eventually
enrolled in college herself.
When she received her degree, I
was terribly proud.
As the years passed, my
bothers and sisters moved away
one by one, but I made sure to
keep in touch with them. We.
were never more than a letter or
a phone call apart, and shared
each detail of our lives with
each other as though we were
still In\ ing under the same roof.
-I 'suppose my most memo-
rable character, and the one I
would have submitted to, that
famous Reader's Digest compe-
tition was my mom, God rest .


I love my fami-
ly, always have;
always will. You
might not find
them very exciting
or even interesting,
but I do. Not one of

remarkable.
I was one of the middle chil-

yet never felt lost in the shuffle.
Mom always found time to
make each one of us feel spe-
cial. Our faults were mini-
mized, our strengths were
praised, and she encouraged us
to follow our dreams.
I love life, I love my own
life, and I love me. I'm happy to
be alive and acknowledge the
fact that if it hadn't been for
Mother, I never would have
been bom.
That may seem like over sim-
plification to you, but not to me.
I'm grateful to have been her
child, in that family, and I'm
grateful for all the love I
received from her, my brothers
and my sisters.
They're nice people, ,smart
and successful I revel in that
knowledge. I want everyone to

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
April 22, 2001: The Sebring
baseball team rallied late to
beat Hardee 3-1 and win its
eighth straight game. Travis
Hill broke a 1-1 tie in the
bottom of the sixth when he,
appfred to slide under-
neath 'the tag of catcher
James Perry and was ruled
safe on a controversial call.
Right wander Matt Luke got
the victory for Sebring,.
pitching a complete game,
allowing one run on three
hits, striking out 11 and
walking only one.

20 Years Ago
April 23, 1986: Sebring
High School won the
Heartland Conference golf
championship for. the
eighth consecutive year.
Led by Ron Klocko's 2-over
74, the Streaks claimed the
team title by a whopping 24
strokes over the second-
place Green Dragons, 311-
335. Sebring's top four of
Klocko, Peter Galvano (78),
Mike Phillips (78) and
Richard Galvano (81) had
little trouble with the Golf
Harmmock course.

"We thought we were in fourth place,"
Hickman said. "The guys were already

thought he must have said 'Arnold.' He
said it again, and I stood up and he looked'

Teamwork


the key for


Avon Park

Offense uses outs to
drive in runs for rout
By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
LAKE PLACID It was all
about teamwork for the Red
Devils on Friday.
Sure, they pounded out 15
hits in the process of rolling to
a 16-5 win in the regular-sea-
.son finale at Lake Placid, but it
".w isn't the hits that provided
most ol the scoring for Avon
Park.
Half of the Devils' runs
came .on either sacrifice flies,
groundouts or getting hit by a
pitch with the bases loaded,
which is just the kind of self-
lessness coach Mort Jackson
has been preaching to his team.
Jackson pointed to a March
31 win over Hardee as the turn-
ing point for the Devils, who,
finished the regular season 17-
8 and as the top seed in District
10-4A thanks in no small part
to .the willingness to do what-
ever it takes to drive in a run,
,. heiher by hit or out.
"We beat them, but Hardee
was the one doing that,"
Jack'Ion recalled. Avon Park
"I pointed at 16
Hardee and said
(to the Devils),
'That's how a Lake Placid
team, plays. 5
Thnat' ie,in .e-
bull Those LiiS
do what it takes. The., .don't
care about their ,-%at ._

"From that point on ... our
kids have started doing that..
That's exciting that if finally
clicks. Sometimes you go a
whole season and it never
clicks, but with these guys it
clicked and they started doing
that."
After the Dragons opened
with a 2-0 lead in the first on
Alex Delgado's RBI double
and a run-scoring error, the
Devils responded with 11 unan-
swered runs over the next four
innings, the first two of which
came in the second on a sacri-
fice fly by winning pitcher
Luke Sedlock and Garrett
Duke's RBI groundout.
In the third, it was a Johnny
Sedlock. sac fly and a ground-
out by Chavious Gordon that
drove in two of the Devils'four
runs, with Matt Devlin adding a
run-scoring single as the Devils
went up 6-2.
Johnny Sedlock hit another
sacrifice fly in the fourth and
Paul Conrad was hit by a pitch
to drive in a run to put Avon
Park up by six. In the fifth,

game. "They were knocked out

with it and try not to throw the
ball all over.
"We're all freshman and


sophomores with one junior and
senior and I'm pleased with
where we're headed. I told the
girls afterward that we're better
than five other teams in this dis-
trict, so we ought to be happy


about that."

Leroy Sanders (top photo) completes his final lift as coach Don Hickman cheers him on in the back-
ground. Jason Roman (bottom left) begins his final clean-and-jerk. Justin Wilson made this lift at 270
pounds, but it was scratched after the judges ruled the weights left the platform when he dropped them.

"I ain't going to cry ... but I'm happy."
Caldwell also finished with a good cushion
over his nearest competition in the 139-pound
class, recording a 300 bench and a 215 clean-and-
jerk for a, 515 total, which was 30 pound better
than Robert Hough of Arnold.
"It feels good to-'be a chatripion and bring it
back to Avon Park, the'City f Champs. It's final-
ly back," he said. "That's why I lifted for four
years straight,. to win (state), and I finally did."

do better next time. ,
"I'll be back next year," he said. "I'm going to
make sure I come up and get at least top three and
hopefully first place. It was an off day for me."
Wilson, who trailed eventual champ Tanue
Yanguoi of Jacksonville Bolles 300-295 after the
bench press and ended up the same five. pounds
behind, was disappointed with the way things
turned out, but took a pragmatic approach.
"'You \ork so hard for som-ething like this and
then when 'ou get up here ,nd tinjll\ make it,
you just want to do ) our best. I didn't necessari-
ly do my best, but I came out here and gave it my
best effort. Everything turned out the way it was
supposed to turn out, I guess."


hitter Taylor Lewis loaded the
bases with a single. Fighting off
several pitches, first baseman
Cassie Lewis blasted an RBI
single that plated Cummings
and the Devils would scramble
for offense in the game's final
two frames.
Trying to recover lost
momentum from the top half of
the fifth when Daija Barrett was
thrown out at home, Avon Park
made contact virtually every
trip to the plate. Solid shots to
second and short looked prom-
ising, but the Palmetto defense


was unflinching. Both Missy
Lander and Logan Palmer
reached base in the sixth and
seventh, but the Red Devils
couldn't find the gaps and Foy
completed the five hit shutout.
Palmetto added runs in the
,seventh off an error, and a
Carley Hamilton RBI single
and Avon Park was destined for
runner-up status.

said he doesn't have much a
preference as to which one he'd


rather face.
"Palmetto's beat us, DeSoto
.hasn't," he said. "Honestly, it
doesn't matter. I Johnny
Sedlock's going to be on the
hill, and if they can beat
Johnny, we don't deserve it.
-You just want that game to get
here so you can play."
