SEBRING After. holding a lively debate
Wednesday afternoon and evening o'er the fine
points of ho\ to arrnie at a fair and useful impact fee.
the Highlands Countn Builders associationn issued a
resolution recommending "the Highlands Counti
Board of Comminssioners adopt a Highlands County
categorical impact fee of 25 percent based on the
Tindale-Oliter & Associates tinal report."
In other v. oids. the builders association is recom-
mending that the county -set impact fees that ale 25
percent of '. hat Tindale-Oliher suggested
For example, Tindale-Oli er suggested an educa-
tional impact tee of $5.801. TB.ti\-fi\e percent of
that figure is $1,450. The impact fee Go\ernment
"Solutions, a consulting firm hired b\ the builders
association tio provide an alternative e to Tindale-

'Your Voice' will help transform mental health system


Special to the News-Sun
What's been your experience
with the 'public mental. health
system? Do you have ideas on
how to improve care?
Cynthia Holland and Letty
Ballard, from the Department
of Children and Families,
Substance Abuse and Mental
Health Program Office in
Tallahassee, are spearheading
system transformation and they
need the public's input.
;The two ladies ,will be in
Sebring from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tuesday to hear what
Highlands County residents
have to say and also share what
is happening at the state level.
The "Your. Voice Forum"
location is the Florida Hospital
Heartland Community Room
2nd Floor, 4200 Sun 'N' Lake
Blvd., Sebring. "Your Voice" is
the one that can make the dif-
ference in how mental health
services are delivered in
Florida.
In addition to the Florida
Department of Children and
Families, member provider
organizations of the Central
Florida Behavioral Health
Network Inc., as well as other
local community organizations


that provide mental health serv-
ices, are supporting this event.
Persons that might be interested
in attending are consumers,
family members, interested citi-
zens, health professionals,
counselors, social workers, cor-
rections personnel and other
service providers; however, all
interested persons are invited.
For details, call Sally Blackmon
at (863) 519-3655, ext..104.
On April 29, 2002, the
President's New- Freedom
Commission on Mental Health.
set a broad goal of transforming
America's mental health sys-
tem. Their study had shown that
the existing system was broken
and fragmented.
Perhaps the most troubling


finding was that persons being
served by this system were not
recovering and going on to lead
productive and fulfilling lives.
Be a part of helping to trans-
form Florida's system so that
Floridians do recover from
mental illnesses and co-occur-
ring disorders.

The local system provides
services for persons with men-
tal health issues (often called
consumers) and persons who
have both a mental health, ill-
ness(s) and substance abuse
issues. Persons receiving serv-
ices for both mental health ill-
ness(s) and a substance abuse
disorder are said to have a co-
occurring disorder,

Free tour of the vineyards this Saturday


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING For the sixth
year in a row, members of the
Highlands County Grape
Growers Association are
preparing to show off their
work with "Le. Tour de
Vineyards." Scheduled for
Saturday, it will be a self-guid-
ed look at a half dozen of the
members vineyards throughout
the county.
Those who visit Roger and
Kathy Giller's operation will
have an opportunity to see how
the vines can be used to create a
large arbor which is attractive,
provides shade and is absolutely
delicious.
"We have five different vain-
ties growing on it," HCGGA
president Kathy Giller said.
The arbor, which is support-
ed by nine stout poles, original-
ly was designed to be a parking
area for the couple's vehicles,
but the end result was so attrac-
tive, Giller decided to make it
, into an outdoor entertaining
area.
It took about three years for
the vines to cover the space,
which could easily house two
cars.
The Gillers also have a small
commercial operation and certi-
fied nursery at their Muscadine
Drive home, where .they sell
grape vines, grape-related prod-
ucts. Like some of the other
grape growers, the Gillers vines
have produced enough product
so they can open a "U-pick"
service, where folks can pick
grapes for cooking, eating or
wine making. ,
The couple are also award-
winning winemakers and have
pledged to assist anybody who
wants to take up vinting as a
hobby.
Also on the the tour is
Finney's Drive-by Vineyard.
Located oi Lake. Josephine
Drive, it is owned by Everett
and Susan Finney. The couple
was included in this year's tour"
to show what beginners can
accomplish in just a short
amount of time.
Described as, a "nmini-line-
yard'" the Finneys have just, four
vines. However, theY're not
new. The plants are old growth
vines that were dug up and
transplanted this past February
from the vineyard, of Jerry
Million and already have quite
a few clusters of muscadine
grapes.
Million is largely credited
with being one of the founders
of grape growing in Highlands
Count).
Joe and Barbara Picior are
typical of most of the 40-plus
members of the HCGGA. They
describe .their Eden Fox
Vineyard on Eden Lane in Lake
Placid as "a hobby run amok."
In addition to the Gillers
operation, those taking the tour,
\ ill be able to see a couple of
other well established vineyards
including the Grape Arbor
Vineyard and Cardinal
Vineyards.
John and Linda Leonard have
about 70 vines of different vari-
eties grow ing at their Cardinal
Vineyards location on Oak
Beach Boulevard. Of particular
interest, there is the Leonard's
winemaking operation.
In fact, Leonard will be offer-
ing wine making classes both at
10 a.m' and 2 p.m. Interested
individuals who would like to
get their first batch of grapes

started are asked to bring 35
pounds of fresh grapes, 10
pounds of sugar and a large
container.
Leonard, like several of the
other grape growers will have a
"U-pick" service so people can
obtain the needed amount of
grapes to produce wine.'
But it's not only !grapes
Leonard has used to make
wines. He has used citrus fruit
and even lychee nuts to make
various varieties of table wines
over the years.


The 10 acres at Dan and Ann
Young's Grape Arbor Vineyard
on Blueberry Road has been
planted in stages over the past.
five years. Like the Gillers, the
Youngs have taken measures to
plant a wide variety of table
grapes, grapes for jelly and
other varieties best suited for
winemaking.
Aptly named "Grape Arbor,"
the Youngs also have carried the
theme of arbors throughout the
property.
Those who visit the Young


s operation also will have an
opportunity to see their experi-
ments with different techin-
iques in growing, irrigation and
fertilization. They also have
displays of potted grapevines
for individuals who do not have
the space or who want portabil-
ity for their trellises.
When it comes to small
spaces, pioneer grape grower
and wiriemaker Bob Walker has
established a working vineyard
on a 60-by-100-foot lot, using
hybrid grapes.


Like others, Walker made his
grapes a focal point of his land-
'scaping on his property at the
Sebring Falls retirement com-
munity.
Walker, a master gardner,
will have copies of his booklet
on the growing of grapes and
the making of wine available to
people who are interested in
one or both of the subjects.
Events will include a.9 a.m.
'"toa.t" with grape jams and jel-
lies, at the Grapes of Kath, a .
noon hot dog lunch at the Grape


Arbor Vineyard and wine mak-,
ing classes at Cardinal Vineyard
at 10 am and 2 pm.
For those needing directions
to the individual displays,
grape-colored brochures avail-
able at the local, chambers of
commerce as well as the
Fairmount Cinema Square
offices of the Cohan Radio
Group. Those needing addition-
al information, call Giller at
382-4706 or Young at 385-
4666. Or visit www.grape

State Representative Denise Grimsle., R-District 77, presents Florida Outdoor Drama board member
Harriet Porter with a facsimile check for $146,000 from the state Cultural Facilities Program. Funds %ill
be used for the theatre performance stages.

Outdoor Drama receives state cultural grant"


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID State
Representative Denise
Grimsley (R-District 77) met
with officials of Florida
Heartland Heritage Foundation
at the Florida Outdoor Drama
site on Aug. 4 to present official
notice of a state cultural facili-
ties grant of $146,000 designat-
ed for theatre site construction.
The grant, the second state
cultural facilities grant awarded
the foundation. has also been
earmarked for theatre comple-
tion.
The first grant of $92,860
was granted in 2003 for archi-
tectural work and, the initial
water system. Architect Barry
Moore of Gensler Associates in
Houston initiated theatre plans'
under that grant program and
the site well was drilled and
pump purchased for water dis-
tribution.
The current grant will be for
final performing stages and
access roads. '
"Working on the grant has


been a full year projectt" said
Harriet Porter. board member of
FHHF and board representative
to the Heartland Cultural
Alliance. "and we are extreme-
ly pleased to hate been includ-
ed in this year's state budget..
Not many projects in the rural,
smaller communities are eligi-
ble."
"We are grateful to the %work
of our grant committee mem-
bers Doris Gentry. Dav.e
Nlundhenk and Teresa Stein. for
their efforts," she added. "and
especially to the Florida Arts
Council, the Secretary of State
Sue Cobb and her division of
cultural affairs and the
Legislature which realizes the
importance of this project."
Follow ing the check presen-
tation, Porter toured Grimsley
around the facility and present-
ed an update on progress of the
project.
"The project has increased in
cost in the last few years,"
Porter said, "'as we have been
doing all of the necessary pre-


liminary permitting. It \!ill no%%
cost nearly si\ million and even
though we have raised almost
mo million locallN. it has been
necessary to apply for a USDA
rural loan to complete the proj-
ect."
That grant is currently under
consideration, said Porter, but
added that application rules
require that construction work
be suspended until completion
of the application process.
"It ma\ look like nothing is
being done on the site." Porter
said, "but work is intense
behind the scenes and we're'
very close to beginning full-'
fledged construction."
She added that the drama is
, completed, the music close to
completion, artistic and market-
ing staff being interviewed and
a very successful summer 2006
drama camp for 30 students just
closed.
Grimsley and Porter joined
in thanking the Heartland corn-
munity for the support of this;
cultural and economic effort.

include, but are not limited to:
site preparation, tree planting,
and prescribed burning act i i-
ties.
Landowners who own .at
least 10 acres but no more that
10,000 acres of land who have a
multiple-resource practice plan
will be eligible to receive fund-
ing assistance under FLEP. A
maximum of $10,000 will be
available for each qualifying
landowner over the life of the
program as reimbursement for
incurred expenses for approved
practices.
Almost half of the state's 14"
million acres of forestland is
owned by private non-industrial
forest landowners. According to
national, regional and state ide
landowner surveys. most forest
landowners don't hate a man-
agement plan for their property.
The state's allocation under the


program ill be used for imple-
mentation of forest practices
prescribed in existing or newly
developed management plans.
"It benefits e'er.one when
best management practices are
in place for forested property."
Bronson said. "'The forests are
a critical natural resource in
Florida and it is important to
preserve them as well as miti-
gate any potential w wildfire dan-
ger."
Landowners can obtain
application forms from their

BATTLE
Continued from 1A
And no two categories are
calculated in exactly the same
way, as variables differ along
with the populations which
make use of the various servic-
es.
The effort to be precise and
equitable makes the process of
determining fees difficult.
For example, in one portion
of the report full-time employee
hours have to be calculated into
a formula. The Tindale-Oliver
report figured full time at nine
hours a day. The Government
Solutions report figured eight
hours a day instead.
Different philosophical out-
looks complicate matters even
further.
. For example, two reports cal-
culating impact fees for
Highlands County were corn--
missioned recently.
The first report, created by
Tindale-Oliver Associates, was
commissioned by Highlands.
County. County officials are
deeply concerned how they will
be able to keep up with the
demands that growth will place
on the infrastructure over the
next several years.
The second report, put
together --'by Government
Solutions, was commissioned
by the Highlands County
Builders Association.
Members of the Builders
Association are deeply con-


Wallace of Tindale-Oliver, and
Kirt Sorenson, of Government
Solutions faced off during a
meeting at the Highlands
County Builders Association
office in an effort to understand
each other and reach, a compro-
mise.
County officials, School
Superintendent Wally Cox, and
Sheriff Susan Benton were
present to answer questions
regarding specific needs or
future projections. .
While the debate was sharp
at times, Ken Poe, president of
the builders association, was
pleased that everyone felt free
enough to get their point across.
Differences in methodology
quickly emerged. These differ-
ences are. important because
they radically affect the impact'
fees..
For example, Tindale-Oliver
based its work on The School
Board of Highlands County's
five year, capital growth plan.
That plan calls for. a new
kindergarten center and a new
elementary school, along with
classroom additions to other,
schools.
School board members do
not want portables counted into
the formula that determines
Level of Service.
Wallace, working with them,
used the five year projection
numbers and future permanent
classrooms when calculating:
how many permanent .student
stations existed in the county.
He did not count portable class-


cerned that high, impact fees, rooms at all .. ,
could slow growth, ore, n stop But Soren.son disagreed with!
it all together. .' "'; the method that used forecast!
Wednesday afternoon Robert data. He insisted that only cur-,


rent data be used because pro-
jections might or might not hap-
" pen. He also said it is important
new development does not pay
for a higher level of service
than was provided at the time
that development was estab-
lished.
That meant he counted
portable classrooms into the
mix, instead of putting them
aside, which lowered the level
of service and with it the cost of
the educational portion of the.
impact fee.
Even as the debate went on,
however, those involved in the
discussion were mindful that
only the members of the county
commission will make the final-
decision.
County Commissioner
Andrew Jackson, who attended
the meeting, said that impact
fees are the single most impor-
tant issue to be faced by the
commission since he joined it.
"It's so complicated you
have to rely on an expert," he
said. "It was a good exchange,
and interesting to hear the dif-
ferences in approach, because
there is no right way or wrong
way.
"The heartburn comes
because there is no way to,
know what it will cost to build a
road in 15 years, or how much
it will cost to equip a sheriff's
deputy.
"There are treiids and statisti-
cal data, but when all is said and
done, it would be a miracle to
get it exactly right the first time.
Impact fees that are put in place
wil have&to be' tracked cloe l
to be sure the) are doing \\hat
they were meant to do.'


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Highlands County Association of Realtors Executive Officer Arianna Jordan Burke (center) pres-
ents two $1,750 checks to Ted Lenhardt, of Heartland Horses & Handicapped, and to Claire

The current canker endemic

Continued from IA
Highlands CountN. noted that
he hired 107 people for jobs
with benefits in the past eight
months.
"If you have good people
you want to refer for county
jobs, send them to me," he said.
Pointing at various people in
the audience who introduced
themselves at the outset of the
meeting, Carino showed how
the day's networking could pay
off for him.
Speaking to William Hubbell


of Little .Lambs 'Ministry's
EXTRA program which helps
ex-convicts build, new, crime-
free .lives, Carino said that he
has a number of ex-prisoners
working for the county.
"That's what. it's all about,
e%'erybod' brings something to
the table," Carter said, follow-
ing Carino's brief talk about
how the county has drawn on
One Stop during crisis such as
the recent hurricanes.
Afterward, the attendees
mingled and built their net-

handshakes and business Cards.

Timeless friendship is a wonderful treasure


HINGTONN Timeless friendship protects
editorr against that awful thief called
regret. One I felt trying to steal
EL the eternal dimension in a rela-
tionship of a friend I'd like you
to meet.
Her ear to ear smile touches
her eyes with a glow that imme-
diately welcomes you into her
presence. That's my friend,
Holly.
And though she has moved
from earth's limitations to heav-
en's spaciousness, "was" is not
a verb I will use to describe her.
She "is." Except now she is in a
new sphere where the One who
gave her life continues to do so.
The Bible says in Proverbs
18:24 that one who has friends
must himself be friendly.
Holly's friendliness disman-
tled that "I'm new to this
church" feeling for me years
ago. Her smile, melodic voice
and sparkling eyes welcomed
me as we both dropped off our
vIlIerS 1-year-old toddlers in the
church nursery. Our friendship
-= "blossomed.
o Little did I know separation
and divorce would knock me
and my picket fence down and
that Holly's friendship would
- be used to divide my sorrows
- and aid my healing.
When I moved from Long
Island, N.Y, to New Jersey, we
called and visited. Our children-
played while she graced me
with sound wisdom.


REFLECTIONS

Jan Merop

Seven years later, she
embraced my budding romance
with Ken, inviting our two sin-
gle parent families for Fourth of
July weekend. Ken's marriage
proposal to me at the beach was
then celebrated by all of us -
creating another "friendly" con-
nection. And though distance
changed the outward dimen-
sions of our friendship, the
heart of it was true, dependable
- timeless.
Less than a year ago, a note
from Holly arrived ordering my
"Pause ... and Consider" book.
Though typically encouraging,
it ended with an unexpected
prayer request. Would I pray
that she find a full-time caregiv-
er as she had been diagnosed
with ALS (Lou Gehrig's dis-
ease)? I think I stopped breath-
ing.
When I spoke with her next it
was through her husband since


Holly could no longer speak
(her melodic voice silenced by
the disease as well as the
sound of her flute, which she
played so beautifully): He
described her sitting in a wheel
chair, smiling and blowing me
kisses. He told me that she had
no bitterness and had never let
go of her faith.
I cannot describe my inner
turmoil. By God's grace, I kept
my voice joyful and she and I
talked through her spouse.
Incredibly, she could write and
her notes flowed with thanks-
giving for God's blessings -
touching me with the memory
of her countenance.
I prayed for her daily and had
been thinking of calling. But,
my courage faltered and I put it
off. Too long.
When our mutual friend,
Christine, told me Holly had
died, regret flooded my spirit.
Yet, Christine soothed my dis-
quietude by telling me how
Holly despite her dire physi-
cal circumstances continual-
ly displayed her incredible
smile and "spoke" through her
eyes.
Less than a week before she
died, she asked to hear the story
from my book that told of my
kindred spirit friendship with
Christine. Tearfully, I chastised
myself for having only written
generally about Holly's friend-
ship and not specifically.


But, again, my friend's words
soothed my grief.
"She loved your book and
she loved that story. It was a
connection with you," Christine
said.
The thought consoled and
reminded me of words I had
once read about a good book
being a good friend that will
talk when you want it to and
keep still when you,d rather
have quiet.
At those moments when my
heart feels condemnation for
what I could have done, I'm
silenced by knowing Holly;
reminded that even now she's
pouring out love, forgiveness
and understanding over her
friend who continues to operate
with earthly limitations.
Borrowing from the thoughts
of Henry David Thoreau, I
.know she understands that the
most I can do for my friend is to
simply be her friend. And if that
friend knows I'm happy in lov-
ing her, she will want no other
reward.
To have such a friend is truly
a divine gift. To be such a friend
is my aspiration.

umn, Pause ... and Consider,

Do you tell
"Me and Mrs. Jones, we've
got a thing going on."
"A few stolen moments is all
that we share, you got your
family and they need you there,
though I try to resist being last
on your list, no other man's
gonna do."
The words of those two
songs are about "cheaters" or
- ;affairs of the heart"
SAdulterous relationships."
Recently, I posed this ques-
tion to a number of my associ-
ates: If you were friends with a
couple and knew that one of
them was having an affair, what
would you do with the informa-
tion?
Dee: I would confront tfie
perp and let him/her know that
I am aware about what was
happening and if he/her didn't
stop playing a round, I was
going to tell.
Trudy: Wouldn't want to be
caught in the middle of this fra-
cas.
Shannon: I would tell ... I
would want to know if my hus-
band was cheating on me. If I
found out that my husband was
cheating and my friend knew
and didn't tell me, I would be
really, really angry with that
friend. Can you imagine a
friend who smiles with you,
eats with you, shops with you,
yet has this information? I
would want to know, then my
name would be Lorraina
Bobbitt.
Carol: Sleeping around?
That's painful. Yes, I'd tell.
What kind of friend would I be
if I knew that my friend had a
cheating spouse and didn't tell?
I'd be a hypocrite. You see, I'd
want to know.
Krystle: It depends on the
friend. Some friends might
deny that the other person is
cheating ... might accuse me of
being jealous, because she has a
man and I don't. It all depends
on how well you know that
friend, but I would want to
know.
Brenda: First, I'd ask myself
this question. Am I a true
friend? What would my silence
cause me? Am I upset about the
acts being committed against
my friend? A genuine friend
would make the right decision.
Kim: Some women do know
that their man is cheating. You
can' tell by their actions, their
new interest, new fashion
sense, new cologne, new inter-
est in music ... No one don't
just make drastic changes
overnight. He is doing this to
impress the new person. Trust
me.
Beth: Silence means consent,
especially if you are a
Christian. You are helping that
person in an adulterous rela-
tionship. Also, if the guilty

spouse is aware that you know,
how do you feel when they are
together and helshe gives you
that knowing glance? Both of
you are guilty of betrayal. Then
there are the biblical perspec-
tives about adultery.
Sandra: That's awful. Here I
am being faithful and he is out
there being a louse jumping
from bed to bed. God only
knows what he'll catch and
bring home to share with me.
Perhaps a parasite, a bacteria, a
virus. What would be worst, I
find out by accident when I go
for a routine doctor's visit.
Then I find out that my best
friend knew all along about my
husband's indiscretions. Those
are things I don't want to share
in my relationship. Negatives I
don't want for me ... as a gen-
uine friend, I wouldn't want it
for my friend. I'd definitely tell.
Hope: There is no right time
to tell the friend. Yes, there are
sacrifices that will be made if
both of them separate, but just
think about it. How will you
feel if your friend caught an
incurable sexual disease? Think
about the impact on the kids if
there are kids involved.
June: My girlfriend held two
jobs, working 12-hour shifts.
She deposited her checks in the
bank. She bought more for, her
husband and kids.'Her husband
always had a cousin who need-
ed cash for some kind of illness.
The cousin was his lover. If I
found out that my friend knew
about the affair, it would mean
that my friend condoned the
affair. That friend would be my
ex-friend along with my ex-
husband.
An affair is a delicate sub-
ject. It is also painful, it wreaks
havoc on relationship, when the
dishonesty is discovered. Lives
and future can be shattered in
an instant. The person who is
committing the act, is not con-
cern about the other person. All
they are interested in the excite-
ment and the feeling that is
derived from the deception.
Ask yourself. Would I want
to know if my spouse/signifi-
cant other was a lying cheating
louse?

Editor:
It appears that none of your
readers are prepared to answer
the questions propounded by
Tom Walsh in his letter to edi-
tor published Aug. 4. Mr.
Walsh questioned why the
county commission has such a
thirst for a new revenue source.
He documented that the
increased additional property
7and sale ta\e s would'provide
for the vast majority of the new
growth and asked why impose
crushing impact fees on new
development.
May I answer part of his
question? Your readers, espe-
cially the new residents to the
county may not be aware of the
long history the county admin-
istration has in "taking care of
their buddies."
An excellent example of this
is the use of public funds to
build developers infrastructure.
Your' readers should drive out
to the intersection of Arbuckle
Creek Road and Martin Luther
King Jr.- Boulevard (formally
Highlands Avenue) in Sebring.
That roadway intersection and
the public records involved
demonstrate 'the practice of
"taking care of your buddies."
The adjacent property own-
ers sold some of their right-of-
way to the county so the coun-
ty could, use public funds to
improve the road and increase
the value of the adjacent prop-
erty. The property owners
'names read like a list of "the
usual suspects" in deals like
this this.
Now, how does that tie into
the proposed impact fees?
Well, if future infrastructure is
going to be built with public
money then that has to be pub-
lic money available. If there are
no impact fees (especially the
"transportation" portion), the
local good old boys will have
to spend their own money and
that's a real no-no.
Your readers may ask why
can't the county just keep using
the existing revenue stream to
build new development for
their buddies.
Maybe your readers don't
understand that the existing
revenue stream for transporta-
tion has to be almost totally
dedicated to the Sebring
Parkway project (you know
Carl's Catastrophe). That proj-
ect is so over budget and has
been so delayed that the origi-
nal projected costs are a dim
memory in the minds of local
officials.
Remember please that the
county commission was told
that no state or federal funds
would be needed to build this
roadway. The Sebring City
Council and county commis-
sion were sold on "doing it
yourself.' Sebring was smart

enough to limit their total
financial commitment
($350,000 per year for 15
years). That leaves the county
commission holding the bag for
the remaining costs.
From what I can determine
those remaining costs are a
killer for the existing revenue
stream and will absorb the vast
majority of what the county
collects, leaving no funding for
"taking care of their buddies."
That doesn't sit well with the

people who have undeveloped
property who now are faced
with actually having to pay for
their own project infrastruc-
ture.
So, invent the transportation
element of impact fees and
solve the future development
issues and help the county
administrator dig his way out
of the hole he has the county
commission in with the Sebring.
Parkway.
Just please, please don't
breath a word of this because if
the public puts this together
they will start looking for those
old feather pillows, some tar
and a fence rail.

Conners have

done good work
Editor:
I am saddened at the situa-
tion Michael John Conner and
his family are facing.
Michael, a severely disabled
Sebring resident, has been
cared for at home for 17 years
by his devoted family. His fam-


w. *


ily developed a care plan based
on their Christian faith that
includes Christian contacts,
church and prayer along with
all the necessary medical serv-
ices. Because they wanted
Michael' to have a voice in the
community and for his life to
mean something despite his
severe handicaps, they made
certain that Michael has been
very active in the community
especially with the young peo-
ple.
Through Michael's ministry
this family has given more to
this community than most.'
They have provided scholar-
ship and tuition money to
numerous students; provided
the Christians In Action Center
as a free place for youth groups
to hold fund-raisers; communi-
ty groups to have meetings; 4-
H clubs to meet; Bible study
groups to assemble; Christian
bands to practice, etc. They
have contributed' both finan-
cially and with their time to
church groups, youth organiza-
tions such as 4-H and FFA; the
Cancer Society; the Sebring
Firemen; the Highlands County
Fair Association; the Junior
Livestock Auction; and many
other groups.
I attended a church service
several years ago where
approximately 20 young people
from different congregations
stood and thanked the Conners
for being instrumental to bring-
ing them to Christ through their
ministry with Youth for Christ.
They sponsored the Youth for
Christ lunch for Sebring High
School students. I heard a


young lady from Sebring High
School in her valedictorian
speech publicly acknowledge
the Conners' ministry as chang-
ing her life.
Mr. Conner is a familiar
sight with his camera recording
every important event in
Highlands County for posterity.
Many organizations and fami-
lies have benefited from his
"slide shows" of their events.
Yet for the past three years
this family has been desperate-
ly fighting an insurance compa-
ny that is determined to cut the
benefits that enable Michael to
receive the high level of care
his family provides.
Despite pleas for assistance,
this family, who has given so
much to this community, has
not been able to get a single one
of the movers and shakers from
Highlands County, those peo-
ple with the political clout to
make a difference, to make any
effort to help them. They need
an attorney to get their case
heard in federal court or to file,
an action in Florida court.
The insurance company who
pays for Michael's care is from
New Jersey and made an agree-
ment with Mr. Conner in 1989
to pay 100 percent of the costs
of Michael's care under a New
Jersey PIP law, which allows
for payment of "any non-med-
ical, remedial care provided
according to a recognized reli-
gious faith." That law allows
the Conners to provide the out-
standing care Michael receives,
which includes so many servic-
es beyond basic nursing care.

LETTERS
Continued from 18A
Now the family is facing anoth-
er hearing in New Jersey
Superior Court on Aug. .18.
The Conners have not be
able to find an attorney
licensed to practice in. New
Jersey. The reason given for the
hearing is so the insurance
company can persuade a New
Jersey judge to force this fami-
ly to allow agents into their
home to "audit" the care being
given to Michael, stating their
"duty", to see that Michael is
receiving proper care. Their
purpose for wanting this audit
is to line item veto services as
not being medically necessary
and therefore to decrease the
benefits.
New Jersey law allows an
exception to the standards of
proof of medical necessity for
services provided under a rec-
ognized religious faith. So this
audit is a violation of their con-
stitutional rights.
Michael's care has been
evaluated on a monthly basis
for-17 years by a registered
nurse from a local nursing serv-
ice who is hired by the insur-
ance carrier to evaluate the care
and report to them. directly.
This company denied Michael
important benefits for more
than 14 years based on their
"medical standards" in viola-
tion of their law.
The family, was finally
awarded a decision in a 2003,
arbitration that ordered the
insurance company to cover
many of those benefits. Since
that award, the company has
relentlessly pursued ways to
reduce the benefits ordered by
the arbitrator.
It is a real shame that little
people in our country are not
able to stand up for their rights
like the wealth) can. The big


corporations and court system
just run over them.
So where are all you com-
munity movers and shakers
who have the means to help but
choose not to? This family is a
tremendous asset to the com-
munity and I do not believe that
this community lacks people
with sufficient knowledge and
power to help them. You who
could help and haven't know
who you are and I say shame on
you.

School board
set Sept. 5
Editor:
Sept. 5 will be here very
soon and I am concerned that
local voters may not fully
understand how important it is
to participate in the selection of
two citizens to fill two posi-
tions on the Highlands County
school board.
The final selection of new
board members will occur on
Sept. 5. Even though that is a
"Primary," (usually a 'time
when each party selects its
nominee for the "General
Election" in November), the
final decision is made on
Primary Day.
This regulation. applies
because school board elections
are now designated
"Nonpartisan." I hope all your
readers understand the urgency
to vote because the'school
board is such a very important
element of local government.
All registered voters are eligi-
ble to- vote on both board
vacancies regardless of party
affiliation or place of residence.
Often, board positions do not:
receive much public attention.
So far, there has been only one
public forum where citizens
could meet and hear from can-
didates. At that forum on Aug.


7, I1 was pleased to see that four
upstanding citizens have filed
for this race for two seats. My
concern is that too little atten-
tion has been given to the four
individuals' qualifications, rea-
sons for running and platform
issues.
Will the News-Sun be inter-
viewing these candidates and
endorsing those who the editors
feel could best serve the school
system and the county?
Having known him for
many, many years, I. feel
strongly that one of the candi-
dates offers especially out-
standing and valuable qualifi-
cations. Chet Brojek has served
local students for more than 30
years in various roles: as an
English teacher, coach, athlet-
ics director and.dean. His class-
room experience gives him
first-hand knowledge about
current trends, behaviors and
demands placed on the entire
school program. Chet possess-
es other key experience, that is
quite unique.
He has been a leader in the
professional teacher 'organiza-
tion, serving under several
superintendents on the negotia-
tions team to define the con-
tract relationship between the
board and the teachers. In these
sessions he has gained a clear
understanding of the complex
financial aspects of the school
system and he understands the
problem of being required to
provide more and more servic-
es without having higher and
higher revenues.
Since his' retirement, Chet
has continued his long-time
public service as head of
numerous charity events (most-
ly distance races as fund rais-
ers), as president of a home-
owners association, as director
of a local banking institution,
through Rotary and in a variety
of special athletic projects.
The track at Avon Park High
,School is named for him. Just


one of several honors he has
received. I am happy to endorse
Chet Brojek for School Board.
I hope you will do the same ...
and be sure to vote on Sept. 5.

Look again at
insurance
Editor:
The more articles about the
insurance uproar I read, the
more amazed I become. I real-
ize we cannot force private
companies to handle business
they do not want, but has any-
one looked at it from a differ-
ent angle?
There has to be a way to
,develop a policy that would
cover everything except hurri-
cane losses. To me 'it makes
sense that then homeowners,
businesses and government
buildings could be covered by
the regular insurance compa-
nies for normal problems, and
the, Florida Citizens' "Rescue
Insurance" could take handle
just the coverage for hurricane
damages. (I'm thinking along
the lines of the present flood
insurance arrangement.)
For insurers to make a mass
exodus from our state seems,
as they say, to be thro0\ ing out
the baby with 'the bath water,
and doesn't make a whole lot
of sense (or 'profits for their
companies either). Just won-
dering if this had been consid-
ered yet..... '

Problem there
existed in 1992
Editor:
I wish to say thank you for
'the coverage and insight into
the horrible animal hoarder,
Connie Mack of Venus. I am a
part-time resident of Venus.
While your story, I believe,
was slanted toward how much
Connie loved her animals, it
was most factual.
The real fact here is that a
neighborhood suffered for
years (since 1992) after
numerous complaints were
made by many owners to
Highlands County offices of
the. commissioners, animal
control, and code enforcement.
Thirty dogs were taken about
three years ago from Ms.
Mack.
It is my sincere belief that it
was only after your newspaper
ran the 'article and Mr. (Art)
Schmelka (News-Sun, Aug. 6)
wrote the county commission-
ers that action was taken. I per-
sonally was given false infor-
mation by code enforcement
and animal control, and was
told nothing could be done.


I read old letters from resi-
dents Louis Dixon and Sheryl
Greco pleading for help, and a
letter with broken promises
from Commissioner Bob
Bullard assuring them he
would address it and clean it up
quickly. That was in 2002.
Let's just hope your newspa-
per investigator will further
discover why this was over-
looked,, and follow this prob-
lem until the toxic site is bull-
dozed and cleaned up com-
pletely of the mountains of dog
feces and derelict busses, cars
and condemned buildings.
The suggestion that an ordi-
nance be enacted to prevent
this on residential lots in the
future was made to the county
commissioners., I sincerely
hope that this happens swiftly. I
sincerely hope that Connie
Mack gets counseling and/or
jail time for allowing those
poor animals to suffer (and face
euthanasia) as she said "I love
my dogs."
Shame on animal control and
code enforcement for looking
the other way. We deserve bet-
ter, as taxpayers, of these coun-
ty departments.

This week, a character in

Three of the links from the
previously mentioned Web
site that are worth looking at
are the "nightsky live" site,

Northern Lights from space.

DIVERSIONS



Checking your pulse can be




more exciting than 'Pulse'

Typically, when I walk into 2l ll i ~ Want to go?


an early afternoon showing of a
scary movie, the theater is&
sparsely populated.
I find that the transition from
parking lot sauna to sub-zero,
air-conditioned auditorium pre-
pares the system for shivers and
goose bumps. Popcorn is a must
for a scary flick because of the
possibility of spilling it when
you jump. Even if it speckles
your shirt and pants with oily
dpts of butter "flavoring," it can
make even a mild jolt feel dra-
matic, especially if you have a
friend or date to laugh at you.'
My first indication of
impending cinematic boredom
should have been the empty
theater. Not just low attendance,
no attendance.
When the creepy creatures on
the screen elicit, a response, it's
usually fun to watch the heads
and shoulders in front of you
react in silhouette. Like laugh-
ter during a comedy, fear at a
horror movie can be conta-
gious. For a film like "Pulse,"
this only works if there's an
audience.
To be fair, Monday was the
first day of school for
Highlands County and a movie
starring Kristen Bell from
UPN's popular "Veronica
Mars" show would have drawn
at least a few teenagers other-
wise.
I felt like a big-time
Hollywood critic at my own
private screening as I bounced
from seat to seat during the
opening credits. I had the free-
dom to" shout things at the
screen, make gigantic hand-
shadow puppets or do calisthen-
ics -in the aisle if I was so
inclined. -

entertainment certainly came in

"Pulse" is the first horror
attempt to deliver its menace
via the Internet, and I guess it
was bound to happen. They've
come through the TV
("Poltergeist"), through the
telephone ("When A Stranger
Calls," "Murder By Phone")
and although I can't recall an
example of radio ghosts, I'd be
willing to bet that has been
done, too.
"Pulse" follows a tight-knit
group of students in a nameless
Ohio city. The film's first item

ghostly attack to set the tone -
is to illustrate the prevalent fix-
ation with cell phones, e-mail
and chat rooms in college life.
The opening montage of gothic,
hipster coeds on campus
obsessing over their cyber-
smack feels overdone and
spoon-fed.
We come to know Mattie
Webber (Bell), who is haunted
by a crumbling relationship
with her tech-head boyfriend,
Josh. Her friends console her
through Josh's increasing flaki-
ness and discuss life's problems
online. '
Josh's computer hacking has
opened' a portal to a world of
life-sucking spirits who cross
over through your .hard drive or
cellular service. The ensuing
terror drives him to suicide and
starts a chain of mayhem on the
information superhighway.
Words cannot express how
lame this premise is, or, how
seriously the cast takes it. As
the characters are subsumed
into their computers one by
one, Mattie meets new love
interest Dexter McCarthy (Ian
Somerhalder) and off they go to
install a virus to exercise the
demons.
There are isolated times
when the movie succeeds at


frightening the audience (again,
if there was one), but it's so
glaringly obvious that the star-
tling moments are coming that
it feels like a trail of bread
crumbs leading up to .every
"boo!" Computer-glitch ghouls
and squealing soul absorption-
just isn't all that freaky, and the
moral-of-the-story narration at
the end is sure to make your
eyes roll.
"Pulse'' might turn out to be
the worst movie I'll see all year,
and unless. you're looking for
something so dumbed down
and predictable that you can
shut your brain off, follow the
advice of the multitude who
didn't join me at the movies this
week.

S undoffaith built o fundamentals


There are always fundamen-
tals, no matter what area of life
may be in view. My oldest son
Blake, who is 8, began playing
baseball four years ago.
So daddy, being the coach
that I am, began to really teach
him the rules and the very
basics of how to throw and
catch because I believe that
without a knowledge of the fun-
damentals it is impossible to
play the game well or correctly.
Christianity also has its fun-
damentals, and without these
spiritual fundamentals we will
have just as difficult a time as
the baseball player who doesn't
know the rules or possess basic
skills.
In Acts 16 there is a story of
how one man and.his family
become Christians. This partic-
ular man is interesting because
he probably had no clue when
he woke up that particular day
that his whole life was about to
change. We know nothing of
him except that he works as a


jailer in the
Macedonian city of
Phillipi. We don't
know what his reli-,
gion background was
for certain but we can
know what .he
became.
The particular day
in question, the jailer
has some special
prisoners. Special
because they were
unjustly accused,
special because they
were Christians, spe-
cial because they
were singing in spite
of their chains and


VERLON'S
SPIRITUAL
.,VITAMIN

special


because God was about to
deliver them from their chains
by means of a powerful earth-
quake.
The jailer had been sleeping
(perhaps when he wasn't sup-
posed to be) and drew his sword
to kill himself because he
assumed that the prisoners had
all escaped. The apostle Paul


stayed his hand, how-
ever, and the thor-
oughly shaken man
bowed before he and
Silas and asked,
"What must I do to
be saved?"
Apparently, he had
been listening to the
apostles earlier and
was now convinced
in the reality of God
and the authenticity
of Paul and Silas'
message.
SWhatever lay in
store, he knew he
needed God on his


side. Thankfully, he was given
the simplest answer imaginable
- and' it was an, answer that
took the focus off of himself
and back onto the One who has
paid for our sins at the cross:
"Believe on the Lord Jesus
Christ, and you will be,
saved..."
When the chips are down, we
all ultimately must rely on


Jesus. Faith is fundamental to
everything else we do in terms
of Christ and His kingdom.
Certainly, it was no dead faith
that the jailer was called to as
he "immediately" was baptized,
as well as all in his household.
And I am fairly certain that his
obedience didn't stop at bap-
tism, but blossomed into a life
of discipleship.,
Yet none of that takes away
from the fundamental truth that
all we can actually offer God is
our trusting heart. Given that,
all else eventually falls into
place.
Lacking that,, we can still do
all sorts of "good" things,' but
we can never know the ultimate
good of knowing God through
Jesus his son.

Hallett to speak at


Promise Keepers


rally Monday


AVON PARK A Promise
Keeper rally presented by Men
of the Covenant will begin at
6:30 p.m. Monday at
Community Bible Church.
The speaker will be evangel-
ist Arthur Hallett, minister from
Evangelism Explosion Prison
Ministries.
'Hallett is both an accom-
plished and talented musician
and song writer. He has com-
pleted several CDs and is cur-
rently' working on new music
projects. He .leads praise and
worship, preaches and teaches
as an, evangelist in prisons and
churches across the country.
However, his life and passion
is prison ministry.
Hallett is director of prison
ministries for Evangelism
Explosion International. Prior
to assuming this position, he
founded Hallett Prison
Ministries Inc. in 1992. He is a
certified Evangelism Explosion
clinic lay teacher/trainer and
teaches Evangelism Explosion
to pastors and laymen it vari-
ous clinic-based churches as
well as throughout the prison,
system. He provides spiritual
guidance to inmates and does
follow-up meetings with
inmates' families.
Hallett devoted 14 years to
Local Data Systems and retired
early from a very successful
career as a senior software
engineer to devote full-time to
the prison ministry. He began
ministering in the prison system


in 1985 and has been minister-
ing full-time since 1992.
He was the recipient of the
Sarasota Unsung Hero award
and has made numerous televi-
sion and radio appearances.
Hallett's scope of ministry
includes preaching, teaching,
presenting Evangelism
Explosion seminars, guest
speaking at banquets, special
functions, concerts and all
facets of music ministry.
He has ministered at church-
es and organizations across the
country as well as international-
ly. The demand for his evangel-
ical ministry is growing
because he-expresses to people
his testimony of Christ's love
and exhorts people and pro-
motes a consecrated lifestyle in
Jesus that truly reflects the
word of God.
Hallett witnesses in his daily
life with all who cross his path,
whether at church, in the inner
city, 'in the street, in the prisons
or at the gas pumps.
He and his wife Jill and they
have a daughter Alex and two
grandsons. The Halletts make
their home in Sarasota and have
been active, serving members
of Sarasota Baptist Church
since 1984. They were commis-
sioned as missionaries from
Sarasota Baptist in 1994 and
Hallett was ordained in 1998.

tact Tom Solyntjes at 381-7703.

History Lesson.
1 Year'Ago
August 17, 2005: They
may not have won on the
scoreboard, but the Green
Dragons won over any
doubters. But for funda-
mental mistakes down the
stretch, Lake Placid had
Sebring on the ropes
before falling 19-14 in the +
kickoff classic. The
Dragons held a 14-13 lead
after O.J. Williams scam-
pered in from 24 yards out
with 9:51 left in the game;
and Alfredo Lopez kicked
the extra point. The scoring
drive was set up by a.
botched Sebring punt that,
gave Lake Placid the ball
on the Streaks' 44 with 49
secondsileft in the third
quarter. Sebring responded
with a 65-yard scoring
drive in just under three
minutes capped by an A.C.
Wilson 9-yard run; then'
recovered a fumble on
defense down the stretch ,,
to hold on for the win.

SEBRING When talking about his 2006
golf team, second-year coach Blue Streaks John
Snyder was quick to jump into .n entirely differ-'
ent sport for an apt analogy.
S"'e gotIfour eterarn drivers out there.,'
Snyder said Thursday, dealing into NASCAR
lexicon. "I've got six rookie drivers \\ ith the yel-
low stripe and right now we're having qualifying.
for the Bud Pole Shootout and out of that quali-
fying, two of those (rookies) are going to make
the field for the green flag."
The green flag on the Streaks' season drops
Monday when they travel to Bartow for a two-
day invitational, and the four veterans Snyder is'
hoping lead the packacross the stripe are seniors
Roben.Griffin, Cody Watt and Duncan Bralts and
junior Aaron Snyder, the. coach's son.
Those four players 'were all key parts of the
engine that drove Sebring to a third-place, finish,
in district and a spot in theregional tournament,
last year, and that quartet gives Snyder a solid
block to build the rest of his team around.
.. They' were all pretty consistent last year,
Whether it be the mid-70s or high 70s in tourna-
ment plaY." Snyder said
The question mark for the Streaks this season
is whi9h of those six rookies juniors Jake
Broen and Cory Watt, sophomores Zach Foster,,
Casey Lapadulla and Paul Bochicchip and fresh-
man Blake Liles will be making laps with the
veterans.
"We have six players who are pretty much
shooting it out for two spots right now, which for-
me is outstanding," Snyder said, adding that the

By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
AVON PARK Coaching
football for over two decades has
given Earnest Perkins some
insight on how to command the-
attention of a room.
With his imposing frame, deep
voice and authoritative delivery,
it's no surprise that he has been
able to get his team to respond to

His demeanor translates to
respect in the classroom as well,
especially for his freshman stu-

tor of lopsided contests. In
I988. the second of two straight
state championship \ears for
Avon Park, coach Hopp)
Re- is' Red De\ ils trounced the
Highlanders 62-29. Five years
later, Lake Wales handed Avon
Park their worst defeat in
school history a 75-0 debacle.
"We're going to mix it up for
them a little bit," said Perkins,
ob% iously not wanting to tip his
hand. "'My \%hole thing is that
you have to establish the run-
ning game in order to throw.
and w ith the type of passer we
have in T.K. Hill there's no
telling what I might come up
w ith."
Perkins and his /coaching'
staff have done their part, pour-
ing over scouting reports and
game footage.
"We looked at them on film
and it appears to me that the "'re
pretty balanced. They've got a
.good offensive attack, and
defensively they look pretty
sharp. We saw their spring
game against Hardee and it


looks like it was a pretty) good
matchup"
The Highlanders are 31-12
all time against the De% il and
the two teams hadn't met since
1994 until Lake Wales 21-12


victory'in last season's kickoff
classic.
"We look for a. great battle
tonight." said a quietly\ confi-
dent Perkins. "We come to.
,win."
