Family Day is coming Sept. 25


Special to the News-Sun
A Day to Eat Dinner with
Your Children is a national
effort to promote family dinners
as an effective way to reduce
substance abuse among chil-


dren and teens. Family Day is
celebrated Sept. 25.
Research by The National
Center on Addiction. and
Substance Abuse (C.ASA at
Columbia University consis-


tently finds that the more often
children eat dinner with their
families; the less likely they are
to smoke, drink, or use drugs.
The conversations that go hand-
in-hand with dinner help par-
ents learn more about their chil-
dren's lives and better under-
stand the challenges they face.
Family\ Day emphasizes the
importance of regular family)
activities and encourages
Americans to make family din-
ners a regular feature of their
lives. Parental engagement is
the single most effective strate-
gy in preventing substance use
and abuse among youth!
No loving relationship can
exist without communication.
Children believe that they have
valuable things to say. When a
parent genuinely listens, it
helps to build a child's self-'
esteem and .confidence. The
most important thing to remem-
ber when it comes to talking
about difficult subjects like-
drinking and drugs' is that it's
not a five-minute "talk" it's
about building an ongoing dia,-
logue.
Celebrating Family Day is a
way to reflect on the impor-
tance of the role as a parent,
whether it be eating dinner with .
your children, or engaging in
other family activities.
Call Dr. Laura Van Horn,
471-5662, for information on

Classified get results


Nobody\ was
injured in the
shooting,
Rowan said.
"The projec-
tiles striking
the front of the
targeted resi-
dence nearly
missed several windows,"
Rowan said in his complaint
affidavit.
In the affidavit, Rowan said
several witnesses either saw or
heard the shooting.
Chief Frank Mercurio
released the victims' names
Friday but because they appar-
ently don't know their alleged
assailants, the News-Sun is
withholding publication.
During a phone interview
Friday morning, Rowan said
he's looking into the possibility,
of a connection between the


Lacey Street shooting and one
that occurred at 3:21 a.m. July
23.
In the latter, a 22-year-old
black male resident of Avon
Park was shot in the intersec-
tion of Hal McRae Boulevard
and Delaney Avenue.
"It was the opposite of a
drive-by shooting,". Mercurio
said, explaining that the victim
drove his 2001 White Ford
Expedition west into the 'inter-
section when gunfire rang out
from multiple locations.
Mercurio would not disclose
the nature of the victim's
,wounds but confirmed that he
has been released from the hos-
pital.
The chief said he wasn't
aware that the cases were
linked, as Rowan suggested.
., He said arrests are expected
in both.

supervision of director Keith
Albritton.
"She stated she will turn over
all her male dogs to animal con-
trol on Monday, Feb. 25," the
2002 report showed, noting that
that would leave her with eight
dogs.
Mack told the News-Sun on
Aug. 11, as she watched the
ACOs haul her dogs away, that
she began with 12 dogs about
14 years ago.
In October 1992, Mack
pleaded guilty to allowingn)
dog to run at large," Highlands
County court records show.
Her dogs, because of the on-.
going investigation and'pending
medical examinations, aren't
being offered for adoption.
James Wagner, of. the State
Attorney's office, said Friday
that Steve Houchin is still

"speaking" to fellow :commis-
sioners through, an article,-
Stokes limited his comments.
He did say that he spent the
past two months,. time given to
opponents to review Tindale's
study, to do his own investigat-
ing.
"I looked at \ hat Highlands
County 'is doing, what
Highlands County needs,"
Stokes said. "Not what some
other county is doing."
He explained that the county
perceived the increased land
sales of a year and a half to two
years ago ,as 'an indicator that
.Highlands was glowing'.
"It got real busy but it was
just a lot of people doing busi-
ness," Stokes said. "We're not
growing like some of the pro-
files say we are. "
Commissioner Barbara
Stewart reviewed the GS report
and, comparing it: with
Tindale's, said the suggested
fees couldn't be generalized as
60-75 percent lower, despite the
several ,comments from the
- public to that effect.
In fact, Stewart noted that in


working with investigators to
determine whether any charges
will be filed against Mack.
"Most people are usually into
little dogs," ACO Linda
Waldron said Friday, as she
walked among 24 pens housing
18 medium to large dogs.
"When you adopt a dog from a
public pound there's a lot of
ifs.''
Waldron, who owns three
mixed breed strays of her own,
said prospective adoptive fami-
lies should take the time to
decide what size dog is best for
them.
Does the home have a yard?
Is the yard fenced? Are their
children? How old are they?
How much time and money will
it take to raise this dog?
"You -need to think things
out," Waldron said. "Don't
come out to the pound and jump
on the first sad face you see."
She likened dogs to babies.
They require vast amounts of


several- instances, GS's impact
fees exceeded 50 percent of
Tindale's fees, which is higher
than what the commission has
been discussing implementing
them.
"I feel uncomfortable putting
automatic increases in,"
Stewart said, explaining she'd
rather review impact fees' per-
formance annually, than: auto-
matically stepping them up to.
"what Tindale suggest is needed
in the county. "I also feel things-
could change. The economy
could change, 'costs may
change, costs could go down."

training phase. And, like peo-
ple, dogs have personalities,
likes and dislikes.
Corine Burgess, Highlands
County public information offi-
cer, said one person donated
dog food and there have been a
additional calls to animal con-
trol, but Waldon said that
increase hasn't been significant.
"We really need to keep
things moving, we have no
choice," she said, explaining
that Mack's dogs continue to
trickle in every day.
Animal control has three
kennels, but two of them being
used to quarantine Mack's
dogs.
Waldron said they appear to
be in relatively good health but
require constant worming- and
spraying for flees and ticks.
Seven dogs were euthanized
Aug. 12, but no others have
been put down since then.
"We don't want the other


The changes may already be
occurring, as national housing
reports show a cooling in the
recent hot market.
Stokes, citing a news report,
said he heard that Florida's
growth slowed by- 27 percent
compared to this time last year.
Bullard, who's been out of
town all week, hasn't seen the
GS report. But, Stewart and
Stokes, having reviewed it, said
they- believe that impact fees
will become a reality after
Tuesday's meeting, though at
what level remains to be deter-
mined.


dogs with them until we know
what kind of health problems
they have," Waldron said.
"From what I have seen, they're
doing OK."
Adoption prices vary
depending on size and gender,
with larger dogs and females
costing more.
When a family adopts a dog,
they're paying to have their
new family member fixed,
which they do by taking the ani-
mal to a vet.
While customers shouldn't
have to pay anything, some vet-
erinarians have additional fees,
she noted.
"It's done on an honor sys-
tem," Waldron said, noting that
adoptive families may end up
not taking the dog to the vet.
For more information,
Animal Control can be reached
at 655-6475.


Bullard, based on his conver-
sations with several commis-
sioners from other counties that
have gone through the impact
fee process, said the timing of
HCBA's report falls in line with
what has happened throughout
the state.
"That doesn't mean their
numbers are not valid." Bullard
said, noting that he would con-
sider impact fees in. lieu of
Tindale's "if, somebody can.
show me that we can do that
without putting ourselves in
violation of state law."

carting arm loads of baked
goods out onto the floor.
There is a comforting rou-
tine about the job.
The first thing done every
day is an inventory of the
product already out on the
shelf. The bakers are responsi-
ble for insuring the shelves are
filled, and that none of the
baked goods are out of date.
The shelves cleared and
cleaned, it's time to make the
new product.
Winn-Dixie sells several
types of bread. The two most
popular by far are Cuban bread
and Puerto Rican bread.
McIntyre said she sells
about 50 loaves of Cuban
bread every day. It's a light
bread with a crispy crust and a
soft interior.
Puerto Rican bread is a
slightly larger loaf, with
Caribbean spices mixed in arid
it's rolled in corn. meal before
baking. It is not as crusty and a
little sweeter than Cuban
bread.
Mclntyre and Patterson also
turn out French and Italian
breads, hamburger and hot dog
buns. Chicago rolls. brat urst
rolls. five flavors of cream

Christopher Tuffley discovered it takes more than a flick of the wrist
to properly make a ripple border. The ripples across the top of this
cake varied wildly, and he had trouble writing his own name. The

It used to be that Winn-

%wares from scratch.
But, Mclnti re said. about
four years ago there was a
major shift.
The bakers .ere spending so
much time prepping. baking
and cleaning, that customer

Not. w ith the wonders of
modern science, the bakers,,


have more time to attend to
their customers.

store frozen, from a central dis-
tribution site in Miami.
The bread dough is already

ers thaw\ what they need
overnight so it is ready to work
with first thing in the morning.
The dough is shaped and
placed on baking tra\s which
are first placed inside a stain-
less steel box called a proofer.
The proofer pro\ ides a
\warm, high humidity setting
that allows the \yeast dough to
rise. Once risen, the loa\es of
bread are then baked in the
o\en for 25 minutes at 350
degrees.
Because so mann\ oa\ es of
bread are baked at once, the
baking tra\s are placed on
rolling racks which stand about
six feet tall. The\ are rolled in

Getting them into the oven

I almost dumped an entire

energetic trying to push it into

tra\ s sit on metal strips and
slide forward all too easily
when the rack stops suddenly.
Once the bread is in the

to do is set the timner, Mclnt yre

sound caught me by surprise
more than once.
Real creativity is called for
when it comes to decorating
cakes. Most come with the
primer coat of white icing. All
the customized detail is done
by the bakers. This means
good spelling is a must for the
job.
Decorating, it turned out,
was mostly in the wrist. I

Four ways to survive



complete devastation


By SUE MILLER
Special to the News-Sun
If you experience a tragedy your spouse.
dies or walks out of a marriage, or you are faced:
with a life threatening disease you will embark
on an emotional journey that is like no other,
experience you have ever had.
For a long time, you will not know how or
where it started, whom to blame for it, or where
it will end. Here's what you can do in the first
hours of such a devastating journey:
1., Stay in the moment. Don't think of the
future, because you don't have enough informa-
tion: to make any decisions. Avoid listening to
others who try to pressure you into making
immediate choices. Instead, ask yourself what,
can you do right now, at this moment.,
2. Stay relaxed. Panic and anger destroy your
ability to think straight, and there is plenty of
time for anger later on. The key question is, what
can you do now to make this bearable?
3. Find support. If you are alone, pick up the
phone and call a friend or a family member. You
need someone who can hold your hand, and
someone who can sit with you. This person can
either listen to you or just sit with you in silence
if you don't have the energy to talk. Crying,


which is easier than talking, can be the beginning
of healing;
4. Fihd professional help. Make the phone call
to a doctor, lawyer, or therapist. No- matter how
hard this is to do, it is better than sitting and
thinking about what has happened.
This sounds overwhelming, and it can be. Your
self image is being threatened by the tragedy.
You're asking questions like: What did I do in my
marriage that went so wrong? What is wrong
with me? Why was my spouse taken away so,
tragically? What did I do -wrong to deservethis
illness?
Realize that this event had nothing to do with
you. Calamities happen to everyone. Try to
remember that it is out of heartache that people
find an inner strength and the talents to come
through whatever happens to them. In the end,
these events make people stronger. It takes time,
but one day, you will wake up, and the tragedy.
will not be the first thing you think about. Life
will return and, along with it, the love of life.
Sue Miller is the author of 'I'm Tougher Than
:I Look' (Williams Cohen Press 2006). You can

Don't be greedy

There, has been a lot of lively, debating going on
between county commissioners and business people in
the community. Both sides agree that the time has come
for impact fees, but neither side can agree to the amount
the fee should be.
The Highlands County Builders Association paid' for
its own consultant, which found that the fees set by the
county-paid consultant were astronomical. The builders
association is asking the county to consider "a categori-
cal impact fee of 25 percent based on the Tindale-Oliver.
& Associates final report."
For example, Tindale-Oliver suggested an educational
impact fee of $5,801. Twenty-five percent of that figure
is $1,450. The impact fee Government ,Solutions, the
firm hired by the builders association to provide an alter-
native to Tindale-Oliver's proposal, had suggested was
$1,423.
Twenty-five percent of the original proposal is better
than what the builders association consultant ,eame up
with. Offering the 25 peri-cent shows that the builders
association; and most likely other businesses, are con-
ceding that the impact fee is a must, but greed should not
get in the way.
If there is a reason for three times that much, then the
county needs to step up to the plate and give a good
'explanation.
The. builders association's -recommendation for an
Impact Fee Advisory Committee "to review the method-
ology and data sources used to calculate the impact fee
schedule and submit a recommendation to the commis-
sion by March 1, 2007" is not an unreasonable request.
This would give the county to do the proper study on
what really is fair and usable in the line of fees, and then
present a more sensible impact fee schedule for adoption.
The builders association recpmniends that the impact
fees be, implemented by Jan. 1, 2008. That; also' sounds
like a reasonable request. Highlands County will contin-
ue to grow, both residentially and commercially. To,
implement something that is reasonable for all in anoth-
er 18 months only makes sense.
Impact fees are one time. payments made by individu-
als and businesses new to an area. They are paid on new
construction so local governments have the financing to
build and operate the additional roads, schools, parks,
libraries, and fire and police stations needed by the peo-
_ pie moving into those new homes and buildings.-
Levels of service have to be agreed to and projected
into the future. Depreciation is factored in to keep
amounts realistic. Credits and discounts are'meant to
keep the methodolog. fair. .
Mathematical formulas have to be created that can
show current use of facilities and equipment and predict
future. needs.
There are actually nine different fees, one each for cor-
rectional facilities,'law enforcement, fire rescue. emer-
gency medical 'services, libraries, parks and recreation.
educational facilities and transportation.
And no nto categories are calculated in exactly the
same way, as variables differ along with the populations
that make use of the various sen ices.
County officials are deeply concerned they \\ ill not be
able to keep up with'the demands growth \will place on
the infrastructure over the next several years.
Members of the builders association are'deepl1 con-
cerned that high impact fees could slow growth, or even
stop it all together.
Both sides make good points. The county's consultant
used the school board's five-year capital growth plan,
which calls for a new kindergarten center, a new elemen-
tary school and a number of classroom additions at other
schools. The builders association's consultant based his
report on current numbers, noting that projections may or
may not happen. Another good point. ;
One thing is for certain, only the members of the coun-
ty, commission will make the final decision. Some are
already talking about making adjustments to the original
proposal. We applaud them.
Businesses and builders association members have
done all they can do to encourage the county to take its
time on such an important decision.,
Highlands County residents liaen't seen any miracles :
in county government in the past and they aren't expect-
ing to see any in the future. To act on such an/important
decision in haste is wrong, Commissioners, really should
consider the recommendations of the builders associa-
tion. This is the county's chance to show.it's not greedy,
but fair in making decisions.
Commissioners, your constituents will be watching
Tuesday and are sure to remember the vote you make on
this important decision.

In the interests of full disclo-
sure, I have to admit I am not a
big fan of America Online,
commonly known as AOL.
-I once devoted an entire col-
umn to uses for an AOL com-
pact disc that did not include.
actually installing AOL..
I felt tremendous guilt for
actually installing AOL on my
older sister's computer. I have
tossed numerous AOL CDs that'
the company insists on sending
me from time to time. I wish if
they were going to keep send-
ing these to me they would at
least make it so I could erase
the CD and put something use-
ful on it.
So today I open my daily e-
mail I get from CNN and I see
the following headline in the
list of articles: "With shovels,
AOL looks for retribution." I:
have to. admit it got my. atten-
tion. What 'was AOL digging
Sfor? ,
The answer was. quite'...
interesting. .Apparently the
company is, going to be digging
for gold. Gold and platinum
bars, to be specific.


Commissioners

representwho?
Editor:
I would like to address
another question to the county
commissioners.
For the past several months
there has been a lot of writing
about the proposed impact fees.
So far, all I've seen is that the
commission is in favor of these,
fees and everyone else, is
against them or,'at least, against
them in the amounts being pro-
posed.
So. my question is. whom do
you people represent?
I knew as soon as I read that
'the commission had authorized
the expenditure of $200,000 for
a; "study abput impact fees",
that Highlands County would
be getting them. Nobody. at
least nobody in their right
minds, would, spend that
amount of money and then say,
"We don't need them."
Ho6e &er, as I pointed out in
a previous letter to the editor,
we stand to get a w windfall this
:ear in new tax money simply
because of the rising real estate
market. We %will also see addi-
rional %windfalls oer and above
this Near for the next five years.
Has anyone seen anything from'
our elected officials explaining
vvhx we need all that additional
money in light of the additional
taxes that will be collected?'
So, tell us just whom you
represent. Is it we, the taxpay-
ing citizens; of Highlands"
County, the ones :who voted
you. into office in part because
of your, pronuse to represent
us? Or is it :another smaller
group that we don't know about
,and to' whom you owe .some
political favors? I'm referring
to developers who wouldd be
severely "impacted" .if the
impact fees were not 'estab-
lished.
One of the speculations I've
heard pertains to Hammock
Road between U.S. 27 and the,
entrance to. the Highlands
'Hammock State Park. All the,
new developments, Ashley
Oaks and the new one at the
entrance -to-'the park, plus the
new construction in Golf
Hammock, have led to addi-
tional traffic on that road.
If, for 'example, the new
development by the park will
have a negative- impact on
Hammock Road. %wouldn't it
seem logical to have that devel-
oper pay for any enhancements
needed to Hammock Road? For
example, additional turn lanes
or whatever.
On the other hand, if that
developer can get the infra-
structure improvements made
at public expense, he makes a
lot more and doesn't have to
borrow money to improve what
he will affect. Political patron-
age starts with deals like this.
So county commission,
please tell us whom you repre-
sent.

and are on a quest
to get more money
to send more AOL CDs out to
the public. The answer is far
more complex. ,
See, to fully understand the
situation, we have to go back to
the story of a man named Davis
Wolfgang 'Hawke.
Mr. Hawke was a dedicated
spammer. In fact, it is estimated
that at the height of his business,
Hawke and his partners raked in
more than $600,000 a month
sending spam to poor Internet
users such as 'm3 self. And
according to his mother, he,
invested his ill-gotten gains in
gold ..because he believed it
SLoutIld be harder to seize in the
event of a lawsuit.
.If you are getting the impres-
sion I don't like Mr. Hawke
very much, '.ou are correct. In
spite of my Internet provider
making an effort to block junk-
e-mail from m% inbox, enough


bf it still leaks
through to be a
major pain in the
neck. I am no lover
of span.


In a move that
makes, me like
them a little bit, AOL decided to
sue Mr. Hawke for sending all
this spam to its subscribers.
After Mr. Hawke declined to
show up.in court; AOL won a
$12.8 million judgment. The
problem with collecting it is
that no one seems .to know
where Mr. Hawke is. His moth-
er claims not to have spoken
with the spammer in over a
year;
.AOL .thinks that Hawke
buried -the gold and platinum
bars on his parents' property, in
Massachusetts. The famiiln
denies this and plans to go to.
court to stop AOL from digging
on the property. Hiv.ke's rela-
tites believe that the bars are
buried in the WXhite Mountains.
\which are 130 mile, north of
Bos ton.
AOL has claimed that the\.
Should tr\ not to be "too obtru-


sive."
But according to Hawke's
mother, Peggy Greenbaum, a
lawyer from AOL informed her
that the company planned to use
bulldozers and geological teams
to search the property.
Now' I have to applaud AOL
for going after a spammer.
Even though they didn't sue the
guy on my behalf, I'm, sure I
will benefit,by a reduction in
unwanted advertising.
On the other hand, how
unobtrusive can a bulldozer be?
I understand AOL wants their
money. But to tear apart the
home and property of the guy's
parents? I have, to think about
that.
I hope AOL succeeds in
reducing the occurrence: of
spami on the Internet. And if
they find the gold and platinum,
I hope the\ use it %%ell.
Jut Jdon'i send me any gold
or platinum AOL CDs.

Radial Islam is

huge threat
Editor:
Another terrorist plot has
been thwarted due to coordinat-.
ed law enforcement efforts in,
the United Kinedom. Palistan
and the United States.
In' fact, it is being reported
that it was recent chatter inter-
cepts by the national secait.
agencies that forced authorities
to arrest 24 radical Muslim
extremists before the\ .could
carry out a terrorist mission
that would have resulted in,
thousands of casualties.
Perhaps now the liberal
establishment, in our country
will understand that we indeed
are at war. We should and must
focus on radical Islamic
extremists and their hatred of
ethe West as the culprits of terror
and the enemy of freedom.
Intercepting suspects' phone
and e-mail messages is not only
legal but itis smart. Monitoring
financial transactions and pro-
filing and extracting informa-
tion from prisoners by any
means possible are critical, as
well.
: While the American Civil
Liberties Union and pro-
appeasement Democrats in the
House and -Senate, may dis-


agree, I hope that the rest of "
America start' to" understand
that we must attack the enem\
w ith any means possible
Maybe now the media, the
liberals, and the ACLU, will'
start to take anti'-Senmitic and
anti-Chrisuan threats by lead-,
ers such as the Iranian presi-
dent or the Hezbolla.h terrorist
leader seriously.
Radical Islam is indeed the
biggest threat to our survival
since Nazism. While casualties
may ha e been pre\etited three
weeks ago. thiis ar is far from
over.
Just as we fought to have
freedom and liberty prevailing:
World War' II, so we must do
the same here. President Bush
and Sir Tony Blair understand
and know this, do you?

'Cry wolf' is

When I heard the news
report of the British arresting
24 would-be martyrs who

reaction was a fast re-run of
past events.,
Tony Blair recently here for
a short visit? Cblor codes,
again?
I recalled the many, many
times Bush has used "fear" to
divert attention. I seem to recall
a fable of long ago. Was it one
little pig who cried wolf or was
it two little pigs? Whichever
doesn't matter. When we hear

LETTERS
Continued from 18A
changing color codes and the
cry "wolf' so often, it is not
strange one tunes it out com-
pletely or asks "what are they
trying to cover up now?
For one thing, could it be the
civil war that has been going on
for two years and is becoming
progressively worse, hundreds
of people being murdered
everyday? Have the, two of
them finally come to under-
stand what they have created
and can't stop? Is it too unbe-
lievable to think these two
"leaders" plotted 'to start an
unprovoked war, convincing
the Congress it was justified
and the right thing to do?
Is this another fear tactic to
deceive and cause us to take our
eyes off the ball? Politics? .
Was it a convenience that it
happened in Britain? That is
quite a ways from here, isn't it?
Whether you take it or not,
my advice is this, don't load up
the washing machine until
we've had time to study this
news bulletin more thoroughly.
.Something about the "color
code episode" does not feel
right.
Now let's talk about
Afghanistan, the war we should
have been fighting in righteous
anger and justification. Though
we hear glowing reports from
local reporters, we need to look
beyond new schools, paved
roads and "progress."
Let me ask you, have you
heard anything about the thou-
sands of acres of poppies being
destroyed and replaced with
turnips? ...
The sophisticated military
equipment the insurgents in
Iraq are using to murder our
own servicemen and women
with is being paid for from the
acres .of poppies raised in


Afghanistan.
Until we put a stop to the
drugs, we will continue to shoot
ourselves in the foot. Is that too
hard to understand? ...
Now, let's chat about Israel
and if anything will prevent this
letter from being printed, this
will do it. Israel will not be
driven off the face of the earth.
These are God's chosen people.
He gave that land to Abraham,
Isaac and Jacob and their seed,
forever.
The Hebrew word for Russia
is "Rash." Russia is interested
not only for oil but for a warm
water exit, as well. Quietly,
they are assisting Iran and help-
ing to develop missiles with
nuclear warheads to take Israel
out and get their "cut" in the
deal.
In the near future, according
to my understanding of the
Scriptures, a Russian Jew will
appear in the forefront with a
"seven-year accords" to end the
war. Because he is a Russian
Jew, the Israelis will trust him
and sign the accords. However,
before (probably mid-way) of
the seven years,' the truth will
come out. This Russian Jew is
the antichrist.
Then comes wickedness, tri-
als, tribulations such as the
world has never known....

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


Sleep like

a baby
When looking for a house
in New Jersey; it was com-
mon to look at the dri ew ay
with an eye toward winter.
When we moved to Sebring
and began house hunting.
my mind inadvertently sized
up the driveway as if winter
sho eling was still an issue.
Quickly I'd laugh realiz-
ing wte had gladly left snow
shovels, snow blowers and
rock salt back north. No
matter the length of the
drivexwa, we wouldn't fieht
snow drifts and ice to get
our car into the garage.
That's why we gaped
incredulously at a recent .
storm while \ikiting friends.
It started as a bit of thun-
der and lightening in the dis-
tance. Then the rain started.
Before long. it was teaming.
But %then we heard the
clack, clack against the win-
dow s we were draw n to
investigate.
That's when our mouths
dropped open.
Hail the size of nickels
danced around on the pave-
ment and against the glass
doors. But it wasn't long
until solid, round ice pellets
the size of quarters beat mer-
cilesslI against the house
chasing us awa from the
windows. Even up North I
had never seen a hail storm
like this.
The wind picked up to a
frightening tempo. Ice balls
surrounded tropical trees in
decorative pots. It was a
sight to behold. The noise of
%wind. rain and hail drowned
out our \oices so that we
couldn't hear ourselves talk-
A ing.
Yet. in another room. our
friend's grandson slept
soundly. We thought for sure
that the storm would cause
him to awaken in fright. But,
not a sound came from the
room. The tempest outside
didn't disturb this little one
as he rested securely in his
bed.
Storms in our lives rattle
us. We can hardly\ believe
how quickly theN come up
and drown out our own
voice of reason at times. We
gape in stunned surprise at
ho\ the forceful w inds dis-
turb and change the familiar
landscape of our lives.
But God would have us be
like the child peacefull. '
trustingly sleeping secure
in his father's lo\e.
"'He %who watches o'er
you ,ill not slumber; indeed
he who watches 'over Israel
will neither slumber nor
sleep." based on Psalm 121:
3b and. 4, NI.
That's not to say that the
storms in our liies'shouldn't
cause us concern or that wee
shouldn't take steps to pro-
tect ourselves or develop a
plan. But. it is to sa\ we
shouldn't fret. Instead we
bring our troubles to the One
w ho w atches o\er us and
freely gives wisdom and
direction.
"The Lord w ill keep you
from all harm -he will
watch over your life," based
on Psalml21: 7, NIV.
Let the storms of life
.cause you to take refuge in
God. Selah.

FLORIDA YARDS &
NEIGHBORHOODS
Ed.4yen


Landscaping

with native

plants to

attract birds
This is another in a series
ofanricles Iwrit'lel about the
new area program called
Flotida Yadis &
Neighborhoods.

Are bou spending a lot of
money on birdseed? Are the
squirrels eating more than the
birds? Maybe it is time to
think about replacing some of
that hard to care for lawn with
native plants that provide food
and shelter for birds year after
Near. Like all w wildlife, birds
need food. cover and water.
Food should consist of fruits.
seeds and insects' Birds need
access to co'er for nesting and
shelter from weather and pred-
ators. They also need a source
of water for drinking and
bathing; mo% ing water is very
attractive to birds.
Keep in mind that some of
the south Florida songbirds are
migratory and require food and
cover only during the fall.
winter and spring months. You
ma) want to select plants that
flower during the spring
migrations and attract insects
for the insect eating birds; or
select a variety of plants which
offer a consistent supply of
food over an extended period
of time. Try placing plants in
groupings to imitate natural
habitats and provide a variety.
of plant heights and densities
w ithin these groupings.
Fruit eating birds such as
the cedar w axw\ ing and the
gra) catbird are attracted to the
marlberry (Ardisia escoallo-
niodes); a Florida native shrub
that grows to a height of 15
feet and has fragrant white e
flowers all year %with round
purple fruit in fall and winter.
Beautyberry iCallicarpa ameri-
canai is another shrub well
liked by fruit eater such as car-
dinals, mockingbirds, catbirds
and thrashers. Beautyberry can
grow to six feet and has light
purple flowers from spring to
fall and small purplish fruit
consumed by birds in late win-
ter. Another native fruit tree is
the red mulberrN (Morus
rubra). These same fruit eating
birds are attracted to the laurel
oak (Quercus laurifolia) and
I l e oak (Quercus virginiana)
trees. The cabbage palm
(Sabel palmetto), the Florida
state tree, has a fruit that is.
well liked by blackbirds, blue
jays, mockingbirds and robins.
Hummingbirds, a nectar bird,
like firebush (Hamelia patens)
shrubs which has orange and
red flowers year around.
Another good shrub for hum-
mingbirds, orioles and'
buntings is the shrimp plant
(Justicia brandegea*na); it
grows to about five foot and
has white flowers in the sum-
mer. ,
For the grain loving birds
such as cardinals, indigo
buntings and house finches
you w ill still want a bird feed-
er. We have a platform feeder ,
and a regular hanging type
feeder in our yard and stock
them with hulled sunflower
seeds to minimize the mess on
the ground. The majority of
birds feeding now are cardi-

Caladiums, caladiums everywhere


If you are relatively new to
the area or just recently "trans-
planted" in Highlands County
you may or may not know you
are in the "Caladium Capitol of
the World." Every summer,
around this time of the year,
you can enjoy the uniqueness of
the Caladium Festival. So
before-you go off exploring this
three day event; I thought it
would be nice to give you a lit-
tle "caladium savvy" so you too
could talk the lingd.
The caladium farms scattered
throughout Highlands County
constitute at least 90 percent of
the world's caladium produc-
tion and. if you have never seen
a caladium field, then I recom-
mend you drive by some of the
local fields and see for yourself
the miles upon miles of leaves
in hues of red, white, and pink,
waving gently in 'the breezes,.
There are more than '108 culti-
vars to choose from and come
in imaginative names like
White Christmas, June Bride,


Red Flash, and 'Pink
Cloud.
There are two cate-
gories of caladiums;
"fancy" and or "lance"
which refer to the
shape of the leaf. Most
'people are. familiar
with the fancy. catego-
ry. If you dig up a
caladium, you will ITHE
notice they have PC
tubers. This is basi-
cally an oversized Di
root that stores the Dilger-.
plants nutrients for _
the following year. A
tuber you may be more familiar
with is potatoes. Healthy tubers'
are firm and the fleshy part is a
bright yellow color and when
harvested they are sorted and,
graded by their measured diam-
etei. This could range from an
,inch to four inches.
As a whole, caladiums prefer
warm, moist acid soil and thrive
.best in partial shade. The land-
scape uses range from mass

plantings, borders, and
even containerized gar-
dening. Caladiums
have a relatively high
water requirement and
if not watered regularly
will wilt, resulting in
dropped leaves, and or
leaf color deterioration.
The caladiums
require a well bal-
anced fertilizer. The
University of Florida
Extension recom-
mends 14-14-14 or
20'20-20.
After you have


enjoyed your day at the festival
and are heading home with all
your new caladiums, you will
need to remember one simple
rule of thumb: 1-1.5 inches of
soil should cover the tuber dur-
ing planting. The spacing
requirements are vary accord-
ing to the tuber size. Generally
a tuber that is approximately
one inch in diameter should be
planted 12-14 inches on center.


So the larger the tuber, the more
spacing is required. This is were
it gets a little more complicated;
if the, tubers are de-eyed (think
of a potato), then the caladium
will produce more shoots as
well as shorter shoots than the
tubers that are not de-eyed. This
is where your creativity comes
in and the fun begins. Use your
own common sense while plan-
ning your garden design and
keep in mind your desired out
come. I guarantee that you will
enjoy the wonderful foliage
color of your caladiums as well
as having pride in knowing you
are in .... "The Caladium
Capitol of the World".

Avon Park quarterback T.K. Hill scrambles away from pressure Friday night.


- -a a--
.*.~ a a


DEVILS
Continued from 1D
From then on Lake Wales started to get into a
rhythm. After stuffing the Devils and forcing
another punt, Williams connected through the air
with wide receiver Arthur Barnes for 35-yard
touchdown strike making it 21-0;
It was then that Perkins let Hill loose for an
aerial assault. Three consecutive completions to
three different receivers had the Devil sideline
bouncing, up and down until one of five Avon
Park fumbles stalled the drive.
It took a Highlander inistake to get the goose
egg off the scoreboard when the long snapper
launched the ball. out of the end zone on a punt
attempt for the safety. Virgil Cooper took the fol-


lowing kickoff 80 yards for a touchdown to make
it 21-9.
Although Lake Wales made its fair share of
mistakes at one point, the Highlanders were
called for four consecutive procedure penalties
- the Red Devils couldn't muster enough
offense to consistently capitalize.
Buddy,Duke had an impressive 13-yard touch-
down run, bowling over the opposition, but it
wasn't enough to spark a comeback.
Hill would finish the night 10-pf-21 for 97
yards passing and one interception and Cooper
added 20 yards rushing on 10 carries with 140
total yards..
"-Our youth showed, but we're going back to
work on Monday to get ready for next Friday
night. Simple as that," Perkins said.
