Landlords


and code


enforcement


discussed

By ELAINE SEDLOCK
AVON PARK City council dis-
cussed the enactment of a landlord ordi-
nance as tell as amendments to current
code enforcement Thursday during a spe-
cial meeting.
The intent was. at least in part, to deal
with issues that Mayor Tom nMacklin and
Councilman Doug Eason had hoped
would have been addressed by the adop-
tion of the Illegal Imnugration Relief Act
had it passed at the July 24 council meet-
ing.
NeI ly contracted citN attorney Gerald
Buhr, who also represents Zolfo Springs.
Bowline Green and Mulberr\. recently
prepared a landlord ordinance for
Mulberrm. which the cirt of Avon Park
was given for perusal. Additionally. a
landlord ordinance from Gainestille \as
examined.
Both ordinances require landlords to
have a permit based on a fee schedule and
the possibility of inspections of rental
properties for the safety" and well-being of
tenants. violationss of either ordinance
would result in penalties.
Though the Nlulberry ordinance w\as
\ie\wed by council as a more favorable
model for Avon Park to use as a guide
because of similarities between the r o
to\ n,. aspects of Gaines ille's were also
appealing.
Buhr explained that the Mulberry ordi-
nance is relatively new and a bit rough.
but that no complaints or litigation had yet
occurred. "Mulberry.'has lots of rentals
degrading and it;s hard to enforce against
commercial and residential." he said. "but
rentals are a bit easier."
Issues overlapped as aspects of land-
lord rental issues spilled into code
enforcement concerns, and vice versa.
Although. according to Sebring Police
Commander Ste\e Carr, Sebrine has had
tremendous success with code enforce-
ment since amending its laws. A\on Park
"\as discouraged from following the same
path. Buhr recommended that the special
magistrate knowt due process."

Tour of Sebring promises fun Labor Day weekend


KEVIN J. SHUTT/News-Sunr
.Rick Johnson, of Lake Placid, paints a fluorescent red circle on the
macadam at Circle Drive in Sebring. Johnson and other members of
the Highlands Pedalers bicycle club. marked routes for the Tour of
Sebring bicycle festival held Labor Day Weekend. Hosted by the
Kenilworth Lodge, the ride is in its 24th year.


By KEVIN J. SHUrT
News-Sun
SEBRING Bicyclists from across
Florida will come to Sebring during Labor
Day weekend to ride 475 miles of scenic
routes.
The Tour of Sebring, in its 24th year, is
expected to draw up to 300 cyclists.
"You may well be treated to the sight of
brightly clad, helmeted bicyclists on finely-
tuned machines braving the heat to rack up
miles and bragging rights," Linda Leeds,
bicycle event director for Kenilworth.
Lodge, said in a press release Thursday.
Labor Day weekend, the last holiday of
the summer, is a time of increased travel as
families take advantage of the final reprieve
before school and work commitments kick
'in full bore.
"Share the road is the theme of the week-
end," Leeds said, explaining that she briefs
riders each morning to follow the rules of
the road that apply to them as much as to
cars ride on the right (as far as is safely
possible) and no more than two abreast;
don't impede traffic; and stop for:all red
lights and stop signs.
Likewise, car drivers are reminded that,
by state law, bicycles are considered vehi-
cles and have a right to be there and aren't
limited to the shoulders.
"Please pass carefully, giving the cyclists
a wide berth," she said. "If you need to wait
a few seconds to do so safely, please do so.
Don't honk your horn' except in an emer-
gency, it scares them."'
Most riding abilities from families
kicking it casually on beach cruisers to avid
riders hammering on their carbon fiber race
bikes are accommodated with routes of
12, 20, 31 and 62 miles leaving from-the
Kenilworth everyday.
Those who find "pleasure in pain are


invited to ride the Bok Tower Century on
Sunday.
"Yes, that's in one day," Leeds said,
explaining that the century is a 100-mile
ride to Lake Wales and back. "Many finish
that route in less than five hours."
Ken New, who owns Ken New Trucking
in Avon Park, plans on riding Saturday and
Sunday.
"We try to finish the century in sub-five
hours," he said Friday.
An avid cyclist with enough bicycles for
each day of the week, New's been riding
since 1987 and has been attending the Tour
of Sebring for so long he can't remember
how many years it's been.
"I just enjoy riding with people from dif-
ferent areas," New said, explaining why he
comes back to it every year.
To prepare for the tour and other rides, he-
rides six times a week, sometimes twice in
the same day he cycles on the road
Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday mornings
and Tuesday and Thursday evenings and
rides his mountain bikes Wednesday,
Saturday and Sunday evenings. .
Somehow (New also volunteers with
Habitat for Humanity), he finds the time to
manage his fleet of hazardous material-
hauling semis, often via his Nextel two-
way during a bike ride somewhere on Lake
June Road.
"I just eat basic foods before hand and I.
try to use some kind of liquid nutrition like
'Hammer' during," New said of his fuel. "I
call it lunch in a bottle."
Sometimes he rides on Labor Day too,,
but this year he'll be on the beach recover-
ing.
"Everybody is pretty burned out after
SundaN." New said. "There's not a lot of
participation on M1Tonda.-' :


Regardless of how fast or how far, a ride
is just a ride unless food is served, parties
are organized and fun is had.
Tour of Sebring is a three-day event that
includes an ice cream social (it'll bum off
during the rides), a poker run, 'pool party,
door prizes, breakfast and lunch.
The full schedule is ,available at
www.kenlodge.com.
The Highlands Pedalers, the local bicy-
cle club, helps Leeds by marking the routes,
receiving a $1 donationper registered rider,
Pedalers president Bob Hodge said.
A group of volunteers met Saturday,
bright and early, spray-painting circles
along the county's tarmac to direct the
Labor Day riders.
Leeds noted that all the money generated
from the ride, minus her fee; stays in
Highlands County,
"Do you know that each of those 300
people attending generates approximately
$125 per day in tourist dollars?"" Leeds
asked, citing tourism development council
numbers based on' the lodging, food and
entertainment the cyclists will spend their
money on outside of organized tour events.
The T-shirts, brochures and maps are
printed locally, rest stop food and supplies
and catering are provided locally and the
entertainment is local.
"Support comes from the Highlands
County Amateur radio Club, whose opera-
tors drive along the route and report back to
'base' at the Kenmlorth." Leeds said.
"Keeping tabs on where everyone is, and
how they're adding "

$35,000 grant to help rural outreach


Uninsured and

homeless to

benefit
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Heartland
Rural Health Network execu-
tive director J. Rudy Reinhardt
was anything but blue Friday.
Reinhardt accepted a
$35,000 grant from The Blue
Foundation's Susan F. Wildes,
which HRHN will. use to sus-
tain its Heartland Rural Health
Services outreach program,
which helps uninsured and
homeless residents of
Highlands, DeSoto 'and Hardee
counties obtain health care
service.
"We can't wait to hear the
good results you're going to
have over the next year,"
Wildes told Reinhardt and rep-
resentatives of the HRHN board
and its community partners.
The outreach program began
in 2004 following the hurri-
canes, when the tri-county area
saw 'a 408 percent increase in
homelessness.
"The homeless have distinct
health problems and face vari-
ous barriers to health care,"
Reinhardt said after a tour of
the agency's recreational vehi-
cle.
The RV allows HRHN to
take its services to clients who
'often don't have personal
means of transportation.
"We've had nurses and case
managers interviewing clients
to determine what their needs
are," Reinhardt said, explaining
how the RV was converted into
a trolling office. "They help

them get appointments with
health care providers in our
consortium."
The Blue Foundation's grant
will fund a registered
nurse/case manager, who will
help Avon Park-based HRHN
reach an additional 60 clients
per month.
The Foundation grants
approximately $1 million every
year. Since it began five years
ago, the Foundation has award-
ed 114 grants totaling more than
$6 million.
"Next year we'll have to give
away $2 million instead of the
$1 million we're giving away
now," Wildes said, explaining
that The Blue Foundation is its
own non-profit agency but
receives, substantial support in
donations from the Blue Cross
and Blue Shield Association.

Hopeful council candidate awaits OBITURY
Dorothy Klug


verdict of public hearing vote


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
AVON PARK Joe Wright will find out
Monday whether or not he can run for a
seat on the city council.
He and his family reside on Lake Lotela
and have an Avon Park mailing address,
however, they are not residents of the city.
Wright.hopes that will change when a
public hearing is held by the council to vote
on whether or not he can be annexed into
the city. At the first reading of his request,
council voted 3-2 in favor. But, as those
who followed the progression of the Illegal
Immigration Relief Act proposal know, one
swing vote could make all the difference.
The proposal of that act arid the events
which followed led Wright to consider
something new.
Since building his home on Lake Lotela
in 1989, he had never requested annexation
or wanted it until now. .
In fact, the council created an Ad Hoc
committee in 2005 to seek information con-
cerning extension of city utilities, services,
and annexation to the Lake Lotela area. The
committee designed a survey which was
mailed to 217 homeowners April 21 of that
year, and the results demonstrated over-
whelming opposition. Of 55 respondents,
only eight were in favor of annexation.'
Wright recalled that survey, saying, "I
didn't want to be annexed at that time,
though I don't think my wife was in agree-.
ment. Pine Crest Golf Villas wanted city
sewer and water, and most of the residents
.on.the'east side didn't want to be aninexed."
Since that time he said, some things have
changed.
"I remember (George) Hall saN ing. 'Joe,
if the cirt is e\ er going to reach its potential
there, are business and civic leaders who:
live on the east side of that lake w ho need
to be able to vote and hold office in the

Sy


city.' That proved to be right," Wright said.
He further explained that his property
was originally part of the Pinecrest Hotel
with two lots in between. He thought they
had already applied for annexation before
he made his request.
"They are going to apply to bring nine
and a half acres into the city and when they
do I assume the city will bring water to that
property," he said. "If they bring it there it
makes sense to look at taking it to the Golf
Villas, and if that water line gets within 200
feet of my property 'then I'm interested in
signing up for that. I think others will be
too." I
Regardless of his reasons for not wanting
to be a resident of the city at that time,
Wright, which will pay 45 percent more in
taxes (according to the' 2005 survey report)
if his \% ish is granted, wants to now and is
fairly confident.
"I'm riot aware of ah\ reason why the
three who voted in favor of it last time
would change their minds," he said.
Wright said initially the inflammatory
statements made in'the first portion of the
Illegal Immigration Relief Act singled out a
segment of the population the Hispanic
community.
"Other than one Hispanic. who works in
city hall and has been quoted as being for
(the ordinance. all that I've talked to ha\e.
perceived it as being anti-Hispanic. not
anti-illegal," \\right said.
."When a seven to eight ',ear Hispanic
employee (of V&W Farms), came to me
with a copy of the ordinance in his hand
and I saw the pain in his face that really
got to me." Wrighi said.
"At certain times in our life w\e can either
ignore a problem or become part of the
solution," he said of his choice, to run for
council
With his experience as a licensed lawyer




M.lw-at I


of 24 years, six years- litigating, dairy farm
owner for 18 years, and service as chairman
of the board of Southeast Milk Inc. (a dairy
cooperative) for nine years, Wright believes
he can offer a lot to the city.
"Our dairy cooperative is owned by 300
dairy farmers, including all of our locals. In
those nine years, gross sales have grown
from $450 million to $750 million," Wright
said.
He believes the county. is going to grow,
and that A, on Park needs to prepare for that
kind of grow th as well.
"As it sits right now, the council is not,
prepared for that kind of growth. And part
of that growth is not just financial, but the
Hispanic community are uncomfortable
and there needs to be some bridge-building
between them and the city. I think I can be
a part of that," Wright said. "If 20 percent'
of our residents, as I've read in the papers.
are Hispanic, then we need to make them
feel a part of the community '
Wright believes that while there may
have been some division or discomfort
"*beloII the surface" before the proposed
ordinance, dithat it has been "stirred up" by
all that has transpired since its introducuon
"We need to get all the residents to ha% e
' shared \ ision for the city. In the long run.
this \whole thing can be turned into a posi-
mtie thing. \\e need to ha'e leadership %who
can "ork to do that and this is a time real
leadership is needed." he said.
It is his hope that as the cit\ grows it can
maintain its "small-to\wn" character.
"-'The only wa\ is to work at it a little bit
and keep communication open." he said
As he anticipates the results of Nlondays
hearing and \ote. he is mortiated b\ the
man\ people .\ ho encourage him to run for
council "not onl\ Hispanics,. but busi-
ness people and people across the board,"
he said.

Letters announce


proposed hike in fire


rescue assessment fees


News-Sun
AVON PARK A letter was
sent out recent to residents to
notify them of a proposed
increase in the fire rescue
assessment fees.
Currently residents have
been paying $121 per year,
according to information pro-
vided by the city accountant
Renee Green.
"When the rate is increased,"
Green explained, "the process
is that the proposed rate
increase must be advertised and
the affected property owners be
notified via mail 20 days prior
to the final public hearing date
so that they may have input
which could sway the board or
commission's decision."
The assessment fees are used
to pay for the costs associated
with fire rescue services to city
properties.

During the year 2002-2003
the rate was, $111 and was
raised $10 during 2004-2005. It
remained the same during the
following year: The currently
proposed rate increase for
2006-2007 would bring the fee
upto $165 if approved.
The public hearing regarding
this matter will be during a reg-

News-Sun, Sunday, August 27, 2006 5A


Chet Brojek
Editor's note: The News-Sun
asked questions of important
issues to the candidates for The
School Board of Highlands
County. They were asked to
keep their answers to 400
words of less for each question.
Today, those qtiestions for the
District 1 candidates appear on
this page. District 5 candidates
will appear Sunday. Although
Richard Norris is running
unopposed for his District 4
seat, he was also given the
option of responding to the
same questions. However, the
News-Sun has not heard from
him. Some candidates did say
they had not received their list
of questions, mailed out more
than a week before the dead-
line, in a timely manner, but all
other candidates did reply.

1. How will impact fees fig-
ure into future funding?
I do not believe that impact
fees will adequately fund our
future needs if the county com-
mission doesn't impose rather
substantial dollar amounts.
Even if impact fees could'
fund the future growth, we still
face trying to replace the 200
portables being used as class-
rooms throughout the district.
Therefore, I think that our
local school board will either
need additional funding from
the Florida Legislature; a revis-
iting of the half-cent sales tax
with proper public information
and buy in; or expansion of the
taxable property tax base.
2. What are your thoughts
on the Kindergarten Center,
where all Sebring kinder-'
garten students will be
brought together in one facili-
ty for instruction? What
about transporting the stu-
dents? Are there any alterna-
tives?
I have some concerns about
this. While I understand our
need for space and know that
the state requires less instruc-
tional minutes for kindergarten
students, I would not have sup-
ported the Kindergarten Center
as presented. I do not feel this is
the wisest fiscal or educational
decision that could have been
made. The center's location is
in one of the busiest traffic
areas in the county, and I am
very concerned about program
continuity and student safety.
I would have favored putting
the $8 million that will be spent
into building permanent class-
rooms. This would have been
the best fiscal decision for our


tax money.
3. Is the
graduation '
rate here i L
accept- ,
able? If
not, what
should be BROJEK
done to
improve it?
Our graduation rate, as well
as the state as a whole, is unac-
ceptable. Our schools have
failed to connect a large portion
of the student body to a curricu-
lum that is relevant to the
careers they -wish to pursue. I
will advocate an expanding
caredr/tech educational pro-
gram that will meet the needs of
the job force in the 21st century.
I will work diligently to raise
graduation rates.'
While I know as an ,educator
that riot all children will gradu-
ate, we have missed the boat
with many students by trying to
fit all into a college prep cur-
riculum. Currently, only about
20 percent of our, graduates go
on to a: four-year college
degree. We must serve the
needs of the other 80 percent
with new and engaging course
work.
4. Do we have a truancy
problem in Highlands County
Schools? If so, how do we
deal with it?
Yes, I feel that the Florida
Legislature has contributed to
this problem with laws that
allow up to 50 unexcused
absences per year. Legislative
changes are needed, but I
believe our board should be
more proactive in looking for
ans'aeis For \a-nimpc, a local
policy used in Hardee Coun-t
allows five unexcused absences
per semester. If this number is
exceeded, course credit is with-
held. This places the responsi-
bility where it belongs on the
parent and the student. There is
no cost to the school district.
I will work with legislative
representatives for a .Ituch-
needed modification of truancy
and attendance laws.
Likewise, our school person-
nel must continue to keep par-
ents informed when students
are absent. Parents who have to
be at work before their child
leaves for school may assume
that child has gone to school.
Unfortunately, that is not
always the case.
5. At what level should a
student be expected to declare
a college major field of inter-
est?


Youngsters in eighth or ninth
grade should be mature enough
to begin picking out career
areas of interest. This does not
mean that they will be locked
into the decision, but simply
this will help them focus on
what career choices are of inter-
est to them.
They may discover after
starting into a career area that it
really is not for them and the
high school experience will
allow for change whilel e retain-,
ing the focus on career prepara-
tion. .

1. How will impact fees fig-,
ure into future funding?
Impact fees can only be used
for future .growth. The) cannot
be used for current funding
shortfalls. ..
According to fthe Florida
Education Finance Program.
the Highlands Counts school
si stem has increased an aver;
age of 100 students per year for
the past ten years. This growth
maN. not be rapid enough to use
the funds that would be raised
from the proposed impact fees.
For example. if impact tees
would have been in place from
1I97-2001. assuming there
weie 2.1i10 penmits pulled in
that four-sear penod, the pro-
ceeds would haxe been
$11 .0.O(.l). However. this
mone- would be unusable
because there \a.s a net loss of
4- students during that time
period.
The half-cent fai the most financially feasible
solution for all of the county's
residents for funding new
schools and upgrading the
schools we already have. \,ith
impact fees in place and
increased ad valorem proceeds,
it 'a ill be % irtUilly impossible to
convince the voters of this
counr\ to pass a half-cent sales
ta\ in the future. In this case.
impact fees would be a detri-
ment to school funding in the
future.
2. What are .our thoughts
on the Kindergarten Center.
where all Sebring kinder-
garten students nill be
brought together in one facili-
t3. for instruction? What
about transporting students?
Are there any alternatives?
I applaud the current board
for hinking outside the box to
trI to allev iate the overcrowd-
ing problem. Howeveer. I feel
like the %wrong age group is tar-
geted for this venture. Having a
child of my ow n who just came
out of kindergarten, it is fresh
on in mrund as to how critical
stability is at this ave.
This \ ill mean these children
v ill attend tv\o different
schools the first two years of
then education life. I think the
board should have explored the


option of a
fifth-grade
center .
instead. .. j
since these "' .
children are ',1'
a little more
mature and TUCK

Transportation w .ill be an
issue at first. because bus-nding
children will be picked up at
home and taken to their district-
assigned school. After a time
the wvill be transported to the
Kindergarten Center and the
same process w ill be repeated at
the end of the day.
EBen though transportation
will be an issue, it \ill be
worked out rather quickly .
The alternative that would

woulld be to make the center

after all, the main idea is to
relieve classroom o\ercro\xd-
ing. It is projected to have 450(1


kindergarten students and the
new elementary school being
proposed for north Sebring is
for 700 students. Assuming
land space was not a problem,
enough classrooms could be
added cost effectively to make
the center an operational ele-
mentary school. This would
solve any transportation issues

BROJEK
Continued from 5A

offer all students the opportuni-
ty to reach the American
Dream. I know this as a fact for
this is what my fine public
school education did for me!
8. If you could fix or change
just one issue in the school
system and funding is not an
issue, what would that issue
be? How would you fix it
under the current system?
If funding were not an issue,
I would move to build perma-
nent classroom buildings to
replace the 200 portables that
will be in use this school year.
I would explore the possibili-
ty of a career/tech high school
to streamline the deliver of
career education to our students
while continuing to work with
programs at South Florida
Community College.
9. Are teachers burdened
by paperwork? If so, what,


can/should be done to mini-
mize it?
Yes, teachers are burdened
by too much repetitive paper-
work.. The district has had a
committee looking at ways to
reduce the paperwork load.
Things such as grades, course
scheduling, and lesson planning
are being accomplished using
computer hardware and soft-
ware. I believe that expanding
the use of technology will
greatly reduce the amount of
paper work for teachers.
10. How are we going. to
negotiate the generation tran-
sition on the: administrative
end of the schools?
The key .p6int here is to
establish arid maintain open
communication -to- create an
atmosphere, of professional
respect. Each generation tends
to distrust the one that follows'
them. This is a natural order of
how life occurs.
However, if communication
between the members of the
Baby Boomer, Gen X, and


Millennial generations in the
administrative system and
teaching force occurs, I feel
they will be able to work out the
problems confronting our
schools.
11. What should be done
about poor or ineffective
teachers? How are they iden-
tified?
Having negotiated the master
contract that teachers work
under, I know that a procedure
to identify and assist poor or
ineffective teachers is in place.-
School administrators (princi-
pals and assistant principals)
are charged with the evaluation
of their teaching staffs. The
contract, which governs the.
working relationship of school'
employees, provides adequate
evaluation processes and tools
to measure the effectiveness of.
individual teachers. ,
Those showing deficiencies
are given assistance to over-
come .their weak areas. If they
are unable to correct the defi-
ciencies in a timely 'manner.


their contract is not renewed
following the due process pro-
visions outline in the bargaining
agreement.
12. Should parents be
allowed to choose what school
their child attends? If not,
why? If yes, how would you,
execute it?
Parents in effect choose the
schools' their children will
attend through where they live.
The small size of our district
limits' the opportunities for
school choice. This year, begin-
.ning enrollments find many of
our schools at capacity or
already overcrowded.
Until we ease our permanent
space problems, I feel that the
-current student transfer policy
should continue.
13. How. many hours a
week do you have to devote to
the school board position?,
Since I am a retired educator,
I \% ill be able to devote a full-
time effort. to the school board
position.
'14. Is there any other topic


or issue that you feel the
school board should address,
or that you plan to tackle
while in office?
Actually, I feel there are two
issues. I will work with our
schools to raise reading and
math scores. Also, I will advo-
cate an expanded physical edu-
cation component that allows
students a daily activity period.
The Greeks had it right, "A
sound mind in a sound body."
Too many of our children are
becoming overweight because
of the lack of exercise and poor
dietary choices.
15. Define your role as a
school board member.
School board members help
set policies for the effective
functioning of our school sys-
tem. The board members must
work with the county and
school level staffs to deliver a
relevant curriculum in safe
schools for our local taxpayers.
As board members, we have a
serious respon --ibi i t3 to provide
competent graduates fully pre-


pared to enter the 21st century
workforce.
-16. What is the best indica-
tor of Highlands' County
school's performance?
I know first hand from my 35
years in the Highlands County.
schools the dedicated teachers
who are delivering quality
instruction to our young people.
Within the framework of. the
Sunshine State. Standards, our
schools continue to raise
achievement levels. Currently,
our schools have 11 of 15 with
an "A" or "B" grade on the
SFloprida, Comprehensive,
Achievement Test performance
test. With improvements in
reading instruction across the
curriculum, I see the opportuni-
ty for even greater achieve-
ments in the future.
Our schools are filled with
dedicated teachers, administra-
tors, and support staff. I will be
honored to assist these out-
standing educators in whatever
possible \ avy as a school board
member.


TUCK
Continued from 5A
dents to and from district
assigned schools, and would
still accomplish the goal of
relieving classroom crowding.
3. Is the graduation rate
here acceptable? If not, what
should be done to improve it?
No. Anything under 100 per-
cent is unacceptable.
In order to improve, our grad-
uation rare we must return rele-'
vance to our classrooms.. When'
a child .sees the relevance of
education as it pertains to the
rest of his or her: life, education
immediately\ becomes a priority.
Not only should we be educat-
ing these children, but we
should also be educating them'
on the importance- of. an educa-
tion.
4. Do we have a truancy
problem in Highlands
County? Ifso, how do we deal
with it?
Yes. According to the Florida
School Indicators Report, per-
centage of students that missed
more than 21 dai s of school for
,the 20(4- i20(J5 coc'" ear % ere.
- ias f6llov.s-: high school. 13.3
percent; middle school. 10.7
percent; and elementary school,
6.6 percent. There were more
Than 60,000 unexcused student
days in the 2004-2005 school
,year.
We t'must deal %\ith this in
three steps First, we must cre-'
ate an awareness in the public
-that truancy is a problem and
S et their help in pressuring our
state government to tighten up
th6 liberal absentee policy that
is in place. Currently children
are allowed to. miss 15 school
days in a 90-calendar day peri-
od. Second, we thust return rel-
evance to the classroom, this
will bring many students back
and they will be inspired to
learn. Lastl. the truancy prob-
lems that still exist must result
in criminal or financial conse-
quences to patents that allow
the problems to continue.
5. At what level should a
student be expected to declare
a college major/field of inter-
est?
A student should be expected
to declare a college major in
college. However, they can ben-
efit from exposure to different
career opportunities as early as
middle. school. It is essential
that, children are given every
opportunity to explore as many
options as possible before mak-
ing a lifelong/decision.
6. What is the role of voca-
tional education in the school
system?
Vocational education teaches
a student a specific trade in
preparing him or her for the
work place. Career and techni-
cal education identifies career
interests that students may have
and provides them with a cur-
riculum that will best prepare
them for post-secondary oppor-
tunities or workforce place-
ment.

7. %\hat is a productive cit-
izen? How dowwe prepare our
students to become produc-
tive citizens? '
A productive citizen is one
who realizes his or her full
potential and continuously
revisits their vision for their
future. We must escape the
myth that the only option for

personal satisfaction and
growth is college.
We must teach our children at
an early age the value of an edu-
cation and continue to instill the
relevance as it pertains to the
rest of their lives. If a student is
inspired to maximize their edu-"
cation in the career interest the\
hae chosen, they willl continue
-to gro(\ professional.
8. If you could fixor change
just one issue in the school
system and funding is not an
issue, what would that issue
be? How would you fix it
under the current system?
We must.change our mindset
in how we educate our children
and prepare them at a higher
,level in order to. compete in an
ever changing world market.:
UnTder the current system \\ e
must ernpoter our teachers o
return relevance to the class-
room and prepare our children
for what is, most important,
applying their skills to real
world situations..,
9. Are teachers burdened
by paperwork? If so, what
can/should be done to mini-
mize it?
Yes. Anytime you are dealing
% ith our most precious posses-


sion, children, documentation
and records will be necessary.
However, more effort should be
made through technology and
teamwork to manage informa-
tion that might be repetitive..
10. How are we going to
negotiate the generation tran-
sition on the administrative
end of the schools?
First, we must evaluate the
positions that are being vacated
and decide if replacement is
even necessary or could the
resources of those positions be
utilized in a more efficient man-,
ner. .
We must look at the job that
needs to be accomplished. This.
process is called management
by objectives. .This should be
the guide, rather than .filling a
position just because a position
is available.
After this process is com-
plete, we must recruit the. most
qualified administrators a\ail-
'able to achieve the objectives
set forth by the school district.
11. What should be done,
about poor or ineffective
teachers? How are they iden-
tified?
,. We must work. diligently
within the parameters of tho'
teachers contract to identify
poor or. ineffective teachers in
their first ,three years of
employment before they are
placed on professional contract.
This should be done by frequent
administrative monitoring, and
peer evaluations.
We must pa\ close attention
to the evaluation process. One

Do


lost year in the life of a child's
education is unacceptable.
12. Should parents be
allowed to choose what school
their child attends? If not,
why? If yes, how, would you.
execute that?
There should be no reason
for any parent to want to choose
a school out of their district for
instructional or academic rea-
sons. As the governing body of'
the school system, we owe it to
the taxpayers to implement
excellence in ever area of edu-
cation, in e\ery school in the
county.
.13. How many hours a
week do you have to devote to
the school board position?
My entire career has been
spent in the private .business
sector, and in doing so I realize
there are no set hours. You
dev ote what ever time is neces-
sary to insure a quality product
and an acceptable return on
investment. I would stick to my
business practices.
14. Is there any other topic
or issue that you feel the
school board should address,
i .


or that you plan to tackle
while in office?
I would like to \ork to.%ard
getting the community more
involved in our school system.
We need to create an a,% areness
of the importance of our educa-
tion system to each and every
citizen that lives in this county.
Our future depends on our
education system.
Specifically, I would like to
see school board meetings and,
workshops periodically held at
different locations in the count '
to make the board more accessi-
ble to the county residents.
15. Define your role as a


school board member?
My role would be to repre-
sent the citizens of District 5 on
the school board and be one of.a
five-member board to deter-
mine policy, necesiarf for the
effective operation and' general
improvement of the school sys-
tem.
16. What is the best indica-
tor of Highlands County
schools' performance?
' Performance should be meas-
ured in the number of produc-
tive citizens that are successful
in obtaining the career goals
that they have set for them-
selves..


We finish what others have started

KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Ralph Crandin, of Sebring, (left) eats a lunch of salad and pizza
Friday at New Testament Church and Mission in Sebring where
he'll grab a meal 'whenever I'm not working,' which is three to four
times a week this time of year. Lunch is served 'no questions asked'
seven days per week and dinners are served Monday through
Friday.


CODE
Continued from 1A
himself could be up against pri-
vate attorneys who could easily
have their way," Buhr warned.
The three forms of code
enforcement available are spe-
cial magistrate, code enforce-
ment board, and civil citation.
Any or all of these can be uti-
lized either alone or simultane-
ously.
"We had a code enforcement
board but it sort of fell by the
- wayside when we implemented
civil citation," Shiirey said
Friday.
The city will be seeking indi-


viduals to compose a new board
which, in accordance with
Florida statute 162.05, would
include an architect, a business
person, an engineer, a general
contractor, a subcontractor, and
a Realtor.
As questions arose, about
how various aspects of the ordi-
nances would be enforced, what
the impact would be on. proper-
ty owners, renters, landlords,
etc., Police Chief Frank
Mercurio and Fire Chief Terry
Feickert's suggestion helped
wrap things up for the evening.
-- They proposed that the city
manager, fire chief, city attor-
ney and police chief get togeth-
er to develop an ordinance to
present to council.


MISSION

fathers. Some, he said, are trust-
ed employees who have worked
their ways up to management
positions.
Unlike many not-for-profit
organizations, Karl said he has
refused government grants.
"A lot of other agencies that
receive state or federal grants
cannot preach," he said, noting
that that's one aspect of his out-
reach that he won't give up.
Instead, he relies upon the
goodness of local business (that
donate bread, doughnuts, pizza
and other items), his congrega-
tion that provides volunteers,
monetary donations and prayer.
A couple who attends his
church nominated New
Testament to. be "The .700

Sunny skies prevailed this.
time last year; but the event had
already been canceled.
May estimated 10,000 peo-
ple were on the ground, work-
ing their way among several
caladium stands, food stands
and standard fair vendors
hawking everything from
Jamaican cooking spices to dog
harnesses that'allow owners to
carry their canines.


"With the research: we've-
done it would take three to, four
weeks to bring it back to coun-
cil," Mercurio said.
The idea was that input
should be given by people w ho
serve in various capacities
because if -the ordinance
requires safety inspections, the
police wouldn't be, able to
determine whether construction
of a structure was safe in many
cases as that is not their expert-
ise.
"He makes a good point,"
Buhr said. 1 .
Council agreed to revisit the
topic in a few weeks when the
group is ready to present oidi-
nances for consideration.


Club's" "Church of the Week."
I After a few rejections, the
call came in that his church and
mission were selected from
several hundred nominees.
A camera crew spent four
hours Monday taping the
grounds, employees and volun-
teers and even a client who was
moved to tears during the inter-
view.
Karl said his spotlight will
air Monday.
"The 700 Club" airs locally
on Fox Family Channel at 9
,a.m. on Channel 45.
"We can change hundreds of
peoples' lives and nobody sees
that," Karl said, showing off the
landscaping he did himself or
with help over the years. "They
see the grounds and people say,
'What a wonderful job you're
doing.' Appearance does mean
something. We're not just a flop
house."


When. the event ends at 3
p.m. today, she predicted
20,000 people will have attend-
ed the three-day festival which
included Tob',s cldo ns and the
10th annual car show featuring
several hundred shined autos.
"They, are spending a lot of
money at the craft booths,'"
May said, reciting reports she's
received. "This definitely bol-
sters the Highlands County
economy.. This is only as good
as all the "volunteers. Today
(Saturday) is absolutely mag-
nificent."

gy and high spirits.
I say that last from my
imagination. Roy Wright, coor-
dinator, of the transportation.
department, and Vames
weren't about to let me drive a
bus with children in it in.
fact I didn't get to drive a bus
at all.
But seeing as how'those
individuals who finally are
accorded the honor of trans-
porting the children of
Highlands County earn it the
hard way, I wasn't about to
complain. In fact, all prospec-
tive'bus drivers have to com-
plete 40 hours of basic training
and pass the commercial class
B driver's license test with'a
passenger and S endorsement.
Even then all drivers start
out as substitutes. You have to.
work your way up to perma-
nent driver.
Vanes took me to'the
Sebring training portable
which is on the campus of the
Academy at Youth Care Lane.
Seven people, five women
two men, sat at tables covered
with binders bulging with
handouts, trying to absorb all
the facts that head trainer Bob
Gilmore was telling them.
Actually driving, while .
obviously the basic component
of the job, is almost secondary'
to dealing with the children.:
And with mainstreaming, driv-
ers have to know how to deal
with physically fragile children
as well as the hale and hard\
Sheets with sign language
basics are kept on every bus
,for example, and drivers are
instructed in the use of Epi
pens used in the event of an
ad' erse allergic reaction.
The banks of mirrors that
run up both sides of the bus
and line the-windscree'n are
used as much to monitor what
is going on inside the bus as
out of it.
But what goes on outside
can be just as scary.
Vamnes told a stonr that hap-
pened to hei when she was
driving a bus full of children
down toward Venus. They :
.were on U.S. 27 going south adf
-55 miles an hour, when the dri-
ver's door of the car in front of
iher suddenly popped open. The

\i omar, who was driving did
not have her seat belt on, and.
she tumbled out of the car,
rolling dov. n the middle of the '
highway, her clothes tearing
off.
"She had the worst case of
road rash I'd ever seen,"
Varnes said.
Varnes had to avoid the
'woman and the car which
kept going for a bit because a
sewing machine had fallen on
the: accelerator pedal.- and
the eniitrjiler that v as barrel-
ing down behind her.
She also had to worry about
the children, but had to stop to
help the lady. She jsked the' '

Dating etiquette to follow


* News-Sun correspondent
Pauline Au Yang provides eti-
quette tips for readers pn the
last Sunday of each month in
the Lifestyle section.

It's slim pickings, and many
are tired of going home to and
empty home or spending week-
ends alone. However, you
should not have to settle out of
desperation, neither should you
make your date uncomfortable
if there are no sparks.
If you plan on picking up
your date, be on time. Don't
keep the person waiting.
Lateness on a first date is rude.
If there is an emergency and
you have to cancel or you-are
going to be late, please call.
That's respectful. Make sure
that your shoes are clean, and'
your clothes are wrinkle-free,.
Brush your teeth and gargle.
Freshen your breath. Nothing is
more disgusting than a person
with stale cigarette or alcohol
breath. Make sure your hair .is
combed, and your fingernails
are free of dirt. Wear a nice sub-
tie cologne. '
Chivalry isn't, dead. Men, it
is polite to greet your date at her
door. If you don't, it could be an
indication that you either have
something to hide or that you
lack class..Open the car door for
her. If it's a dinner date, pull the
chair out and, hold it as she is
seated. In a restaurant, avoid


S Pauline Au Yang


sitting in an aisle seat or sitting
close to, the entrance or exit
(unless you plan on making a
hasty retreat). Avoid the table
closest to the restrooms. Be
courteous at all times.
Maintain eyb contact. Avoid
looking or conversing with her
breast. By ignoring her eyes
and focusing -on her volup-
tuousness, it's an indication that
you have an appetite for more
than what's on the menu. Avoid
looking around the room, that's
rude. Place your cell phone on
vibrate or turn it off. Your date
should be your main focus.
Ladies, make sure that you
are .appropriately dressed.
Don't wear clothes that fit too
snugly: Wearing sexually sug-
gestive attire gives ,the impres-
sion that you are iiempning to


seduce. Avoid underwear that
leave visible panty lines that
resemble a sling shot. Wear a
spritz of mild perfume. Keep.
your conversation free of sexu-
al connotations. Never leave
your drink unattended .Never,
allow your date to get your
drink. Don't order unfamiliar,
alcoholic beverages.
Men should avoid getting
wasted, Limit alcoholic bever-
ages. Don't pretend to be avail-
able when you are not. Theni
'later saying, "I'm kind of sin-
gle." I'm married but my wife
and I don't share thesame bed."
No one can be "kind of attach."
One can only be unavailable or
attached. .
Women, if your date gives
you the "kind of attached" ,line,:
it's time to leave. Call a cab or a

friend to pick you up if you did-
n't drive.
Don't kiss on your first date,
a good night peck on the cheek
is OK. Sex on the first date is a
big no. Avoid invitation for a
night cap. After a romantic
date, inviting someone in for a
night cap is an invitation for
deeper intimacy.
Finally, after the date, thank
the individual. If after the date
there is no contact from the
other party; never call more
than two times. Why?
Technology does fail. Too many
calls shows desperation on your
part. However, there is no need
for a third call. Avoidance is a
sign of disinterest. Avoidance
could also mean that your date
is a 'player."

Dear Friends,
Dee Dee and I would like to announce to you the sale of Lake Placid-Drug Co. to10 Robert
and Caroline Duncan, owners of the Heartland Pharmacies in Sebring and Lake Placid.
This was indeed not an easy decision, as we agonized over this lor many months. Our
primary concern in considering the sale of our pharmacy was that we wanted patients and
clientele to be professionally served and well-taken-care-of. Also, it was our desire that our
present employees would have the opportunity to work for the new owners and have job
security. Both of these goals have been achieved ,in that Heartland has asked our present
employees to stay on helping Ihe continued operation of Lake Placid Drug. Also, the new
owners have pledged to continue serving our patients with quality care as we have tried to
do in the past. Further, we believe that Heartland has proven to be a highly successful and
professional pharmacy group, due to the quality service that have provided to their patrons.
Dee Dee and I came directly from Gainesville (in August of 1956), where ,I had just
graduated from the College of Pharmacy at the University of Florida, to work for her father,
Lee Crews, al Lake Placid Drug. So, after fifty years of working and.serving our patients at
Lake Placid Drug, and given the opportunity to sell to Heartland a quality pharmacy opei
ation we thought it was time for us to "retire."
Our son, Dean, also returned to Lake Placid directly after graduating from the College
of Pharmacy at the University of Florida in 1982 to serve the community alongside us,
continuing the family tradition begun by his Grandfather Crews who started this business
in 1925.-Dean's expertise as a compounding pharmacist has played a large part in the con
tinued success of out business, and we are truly thankful for his dedication over the last
24 years.
The dedicated effort and service of our faithful employees has been truly outstanding,
and we will always be grateful for their contributions to the success of our business. We
cannot over-state the great importance of our many kind and faithful patients and cus-
tomers making Lake. Placid Drug their family pharmacy, thus keeping us in business and
growing through many years.
To sell our family business after eighty-one years has been an agonizing and traumatic
process, but we are very confident that the new owners will provide you with great and
compassionate service in the coming years, remaining at our same location 224 East
Interlake Blvd., Lake Placid.
Dean plans to remain with Heartland and Lake Placid Drug, and both Dee Dee and I will
continue helping for a time especially during this transition period. When we completely
retire, we will greatly miss seeing you, our faithful patrons. We have served and cared for
four generations of friends,, which we consider an honor. We will miss those great cakes,
pies, cookies, and'even jull meals brought and served to us over the years. Isn't Lake
,,.,
`tMfiftyyears! For that; we are
3tebily lr ,-l-'inue with the new owners in

Fr0_.l m..t ,,bless you in every way!

Too close
Three people are trans-
ported to local area hos-
pitals Thursday after an
accident involving three
vehicless on U.S. 27
North near Golfvie
Road in Sebring.
According to Sebring
Police Officer Joe
W.Stump, the driver of a
Chevy Tahoe Gly.nda
Jones hit her breaks,
while Dodge Ram driver
Willie Osborn proceeded
to slop and %as hit from
behind by Utilit3 Pipe
Sales truck driver Bill.
While. In turn, the
Dodge Ram hit the
Che-y Tahoe in the rear
and ended up coming to
a stop between the ulilit.
truck and the guardrail.
No citation were issued

case re-opens

Agent Orange

veteran issues
Srjt'a'al i n, I -t: .'V.t r 'iaS,
The U.S. Court of Appeals
recently mo\ed to expand the
number of veterans who can
seek disability benefits from
Agent Orange exposure. Agent
Orange is, a powerful defoliant
used in Viernam to expose huge
areas of jungle in an effort to
engage. expose, and contain the
enemy.
NManN Na y. veterans who
parrolled the waters off
Vietnam claimed to have been
exposed to the aerial spray ing
of Agent Orange that drifted
onto their vessels. These claims
had been denied pre\ ously by
the Department of Veterans
Affairs on the basis that if the
soldier \%as not exposed on
ground. there was no exposure
and therefore no support for a
claim, or the ruling "no ground
contact, no grounds for
claims."
A lawsuit reached the U.S.'
Court of Appeals, for Veterans
. Claims. and on Aug. 16. the
court held that those veterans
exposed to the powerful sus-
pect carcinogen are entitled to
disability benefits for diseases
related to exposure to Agent
Orange.
The Veterans Administration
has found a positive association
exists between exposure to her-
bicides and the subsequent
development of the tollo\wing
11 conditions: chloracne: non-
Hodgkin's lymphoma: soft tis-
sue sarcoma. Hodckin's dis-
ease: porphyria cutanea tarda
iPCTi: multiple mNeloma:
acute and subacute peripheral
neuropath-: prostate cancer:
cancers of the lung. bronchus.
larynx and trachea: Type II
i adult onset i diabetes mellitus:
and chronic 1l mphocytic
leukemia. The Veteran
Administration advises that
PCT, chloracne. and acute and
subacute peripheral neuropathy
should ha\e manifested to a
compensable degree w within one
year from last exposure to the
herbicide.
Man\ "Blue Water" veteranss
are experiencing the same med-
ical problems and disabilities
as the "on-ground" soldiers
know n to ha\ e been exposed to
Agent Orange dunng combat.
In order to effectikel.y appeal
previous decisions, the %eieran'
needs to call the Highlands
Count\ Veterans Ser% ice
Office, 402-6623. for an
appointment withb a service
'officer to appeal or reopen the
'case.
The veterann needs to bring to
the appointment a copy of the
DD-214 showing deployment
to the area and show ing award
of the Vietnam Ser ice Medal
or the Armed Forces
Expeditionar. Medal (Viet-
nam) for service between Jan.
9, 1962 and Nlai 7. 1975. The
veteran should also bring a
copy of the denied claim or
closed claim; and medical
records since the original claim
%was filed supporting the claim
and show ing the medical prob-
lems associated w ith the chem-
Sical exposure.
According to Joseph A.
Dionne director of Veteran
Services, the medical records
need to be a complete. To be
most beneficial to the claim.
the records should track health
issues from the suspected time
of exposure to the present.

Fact: It is approximately 834
miles from Henderson, Tenn.,
to Sebring.* I know. I drove
them.
The purpose of the drive was
returning home after dutifully
delivering John back to college.
Since we have not yet chosen to
give him a car of his own,
someone had to bring a car back
after his stuff was unloaded. I
was elected for the task.
Some of my circle expressed
concern about my driving back
all that way by myself. No one
was worried .about the trip up,
of course, since, anIone who
' knows John knew he would d
insist on doing all the dri ing
: My job on the x as to Tennessee
was 'to al read the direction's
Don had written out for us. and
b) try.to ignore the music John
chose on the radio. I managed
to accomplish both \ith some
degree of 'success.
I will admit I was a little con-
cerned about the drive' back
myself. I had never undertaken
such a long drive w without com-


not a single road going east or
west for over a seven-mile
stretch from State Road 66 to
Hammock goad. There are
niore than 700 people depend-
ing on this road. There used to
be a county road about half
way. Vaughn road that could
have been used in an emer-
gency, but the state park put up
a barricade. .-
What did the county get in
return?
I do not use the path along
Hammock Road, but I enjoy
seeing 'families w walking with.
their children, groups bicycling,
and people rollerblading. But
where the path enters the state
park. I'm told that the'state park
made them put the path right
next to .the road. Very stupid
and dangerous.

often thought I
would like to take
a "road trip" of some kind. This
could be a kind of adventure.
John and I got to Freed
Hardeman University without
getting lost even once. We duti-

year-old girl camping in the

on the side of the road inside of
the park by a driver using CR

putting the path right next to the

and 634 goes to the nrght. east.
but now here does it sasy that 634
goes west through the state
park. Wh\ not? This is a short
cut to Zolfo Springs and Tampa.
If many more people started
using that road I believe the
park would be more willing to
trade for a thin strip of land
along the east edge of the park.
I've done a lot of camping
and have been a big. supporter
of state parks. Every park I've
ever been to has put in nice safe
paths for their visitors to safely
walk through. This park should
take immediate, steps to put in, a
safe path, like,it is just east of
the park, and use the existing
dangerous path to widen the too
narrow road entering the paik.

I got lost again during an ill-
advised stop -in Tallahassee,
when I went in search of a
bookstore to rest and browse in.
I figured there would surely be

wrong, I got snarled in major

I finally got back on track and

is letting go of the stress, worry-

He could help me.
Even when I've questioned
those attributes, time always
reveals that He is "all that" and
more, leaving me with no option
but to confess my sin of unbelief.
It's so encouraging to know that
even when we fail to believe, it
doesn't change Who He is. Even
when you lose friends or family,
He remains the same. He is faith-

kn6ws no bounds.
So. whatever "rut" you may be

CONCURRENT NOTICE ..
NOTICE TO PUBLIC
OF NO SIGNIFICANT EFFECT ON THE ENVIRONMENT
AND NOTICE TO PUBLIC
FOR REMOVAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
Date: August 24, 2006
Recipient: Town of Lake Placid
Address: 311 W. Interlake Blvd. Lake Placid. FI
33852
Telephone Number: (863) 699-3747, FAX (863) 699-
3749
TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES,
GROUPS AND PERSONS:
On or about October 2. 2006 the Town will request
the Florida Department of Community Affairs, desig-
nated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development, to remove the environmental conditions
and release Federal funds under Title 1 of the Housing
and Community Development Actof 1974 (PL 93-
383) for the following project:
Project Title: Community Development Block Grant,
Economic Development Project (Holiday Inn water,
sewer and access) '
Purpose: Off-site public improvements needed for a
new hotel and out-parcel
Location: Town of Lake Placid off US 27 Northi
Estimated Cosl: $650,000 CDBG; $6,500,000 private
investment
SIt has been determined that such request for removal
of environmental conditions will not constitute an ac-
-tion significantly affecting the quality of the human
environment; accordingly the above-named recipient
has decided not to prepare an Environmental Impact
Statement under the National Environmental Policy
Act of 1969 (PL 91-190).
The Reasons for such decision not to prepare such
Statement are as follows:
An environmental assessment was performed which
verified that the only impacts to the environment
would be minimal and beneficial.
An Environmental Review Record respecting the
above project has b.en made by the above-named re-
cipient that documents the environmentalhreview of
the project and more fully sets forth the reasons why
such Statement is not required. The Environmental
Review Record is on file at the Town Hall 311 W In-
terlake Blvd Lake Placid FI 33852 and our web
site at lakeolacidfl net and is available for public ex-
amination and copying upon request between the reg-
ular week day hours of 9:00 a m. and 4:00 p.m.
No further environmental review of such project is
proposed to be conducted prior to the request for re-
moval of environmental conditions.


All interested agencies, groups and persons disagree-
ing with this decision are invited to submit written
comments for consideration by the recipient to the of-
fice of the undersigned. Such written comments
should be received at the address specified on or be-
fore September 29 2006 All such comments so re-
ceived will be considered and the recipient will not re-
quest the removal of environmental conditions or take
any administrative action on the above project until
the date specified in the preceding sentence.
The recipient will undertake the project described
above with Block Grant funds from the U.S. Depart-
ment of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) un-
der Title I of the Housing and Community Develop-
ment Act of 1974 through the State of Florida. The re-
cipient is certifying to DCA that its environmental cer-
tifying officer identified below, in the official capacity
as Town Mayor, consents to accept the jurisdiction of -
the federal courts if an action is brought to enforce re-
sponsibilities in relation to environmental reviews, de-
cision making and action; and that these responsibili-
ties have been satisfied. The legal effect of the certifi-
cation is that upon its approval the recipient may use
the Block Grant funds and HUD will have satisfied its
responsibilities under the National Environmental Pol-
icy Act of 1969. DCA will accept an bbjection to its ap-
proval only if it is on one of the following bases: (a)
that the certification was not in fact executed by the
certifying officer or other officer of applicant approved
by DCA; or (b) that applicant's environmental review
record for the project indicates omission of a required


1050 Legals
decision finding or step applicable to the project in
the environmental review process. Objections must
be prepared and submitted in accordance with the re-
quired procedure (24 CFR Part 58) and may be ad-
dressed to Florida Department of Community Affairs,
Bureau of Community Development, 2555 Shumard
Oak Boulevard, Tallahassee, Florida, 32399-2100.
Objections to the removal of environmental conditions
on bases other than stated above will not be consid-
ered by DCA.

Holy Spirit, you who makes me see everything
and who shows me the way to reach my ideal.
you who gives me the divine gift to forgive
and forget all that is done to me, and you,
who are in all instances of my life with me, I,
in this short dialogue want to thank you for
everything and confirm once more thus I nev-
er want to be separated from you, no matter
how great the material desires may be. I want
to be with you and all of my loved ones in
your perpetual Glory.
Thanks you for your love towards me and
loved ones. Persons may pray this prayer
three days in a row without asking for their
wish, after the third day your wish will be
granted, no matter how difficult it may be.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Greatest joy
Sometime ago, my hus-
band's mom gave him a
poem that expressed her
feelings for him. In
essence, it articulated the
joy she's had in watching'
Ken become who he is and
that nothing else she may
have accomplished could
compare to being his mom.
SIknow how she feels.
In June, we spent a week
together w ith our three sons
and their families. I enjoyed
observing them in their
roles aS sons. brothers.
fathers, uncles and hus-
bands.
Although Ken and T had
visited them over the years,
it had been about six ears
since the brothers had actu-
ally been together. With one
in Colorado, another in
Tennessee and the youngest
in North Carolina land
dealing with military
deployments.i. getting
everyonee together is no
easN task. This family vaca-
tion/reunion is something
1'II think about often -
even as I plan the next one.
However, another ele-
ment of joy permeated the
natural motherly affection,
love and pride that accom-
panied our time together.
It's a joy that only comes
from God and is especially
present % hen e know that
our children know\ the Lord
and li\e to please him.
"I have no greater jo0
than to hear that mN chil-
dren walk in truth." based
on 3 John 1:4.
Since Jesus sa s in John
14: 6 that he is the wa\, the
truth and the life, then it is
a double blessing to know
that each one know s Jesus
S Christ as their Lord and
Savior and seeks to walk in
his steps, in his ways. in his
truth.
Know ing they love the
Lord supremely gives rest
to my soul and joN to mN
heart. That is w h\ I can
concur with mN mother-in-
lawI's sentiments. No matter
what I ma\ accomplish in
tdus life. seeing the men my
sons have become is mN
greatest jo\. Nothing else
compares.
I'\e'heard that
humorist/columnist Erma
Bombeck once said that
regardless what she had
done in life. her three chil-
dren \would be her legacN.
She concluded that if she
did a bad job w ith them.
nothing else would be very
important.
Another speaker w ho had
risen in the political \world
had similar sentiments
when she stepped dow n
from a very prestigious
position. She was an advo-
cate for children. How\erer.
she realized that if she
sa'ed all the children in the
%world and neglected her
own, God would hold her
accountable.
A-s moms we hae the
greatest privilege and
responsibility to raise the
next generation iwho will
influence the world. I pra ,
we'll see them grow to be,
all God created them to be
and realize that in this we
have our greatest joi -
and nothing else we do can
even come close to compar-
ing. Selah.'

What does hardiness zone mean?


The hardiness zone is telling you ,
how much cold a plant can withstand
%without freezing to death. Climate
zones are based on the average low
temperatures that each area of the
country has in winter
Hardiness zones are more of a tool
for a gardener than gospel. Weather is
Just to unpredictable. What's gruting
well in \our garden nou\ should con-
tinue to grow well. GRO
In 1960, the United States SEA
Department of Agriculrure published a
plant hardiness zone map That's the nn
map you see on the back of seed pack-
ets. Farmers and gardeners use the map
to learn where it's safest to plant \.ri-
ous kinds of crops.
Hardiness zone information is important in
helping \ou decide what plants to use in our gar-
den. You see. all plants are cold tolerant to a cer-
tain temperature and unless you plan on treating
a plant like an annual, meaning that it will onl\
li\e one gro\\ing season. you need to know if it
\\ill sur .i\e through the w inters in \our area.
This is especially important with big-ticket items
like trees. shrubs and roses.
In addition to the plant hardiness zone map.
many people also reference the American
Horticulture Societ\'s heat zone map. which
helps you determine if a plant \\ill surmi\e the
summer weather in \our area.
With the aid of the hardiness and heat zone
inforniation )ou can select plants that are right
for \our climate, but it is also important to know
when it is safe to put plants out in order to protect


them from a late freeze or to allow
them enough ime to get established
before %\inter sets in For a guide ;ou
can use the average first and last frost
date in L\ur area. The first frost date
occurs in fall and the last frost date is in
the spring. These dates will determine
your grow ing season.
Although weather can be unpre-


dictable. and freezes happen e\en in
OWING Flonda.
ASON Benefits of the hardiness zone infor-
mation.
SColey Gardeners need a %\a\ to compare
-' their garden climates with the climate
here a plant is known to grow w ell.
That s %\h\ the hardiness zone system
was created Zones are used to indicate \\here
\fanous permanent landscape plants can adapt. If
\ou \"ant a shrub. perennial. or tree to sur\i\e
and ,gro\ year after ear. the plant must tolerate
\ear round conditions in sour area. such as the
lowest alnd highest temperatures and the amount
and distribution of rainfall.
Be warned though while know ing that \our
zone is important, all it tells :ou is hiot cold it
gets in your area It doesn't sa\ anything about
the drsness or dampness in \our climate. the
amount of sunshine or rainfall oui get. or an\ of
a number of other things that can also affect a
plant's gro\ th.

History Lesson
10 Years Ago
August 28, 1996: South
Florida Community College
volleyball coach Karen
Hollar had plenty to smile
about at the Suncoast
Conference jamboree at
Brevard Community
College in Melbourne. The
Lady Panthers acquitted
themselves admirably,
splitting with Manatee
Community College before
sweeping Polk and
Brevard. Pasco Community
College upended SFCC, but
Hollar was still happy with .
her team's play. "As far as
composure with four fresh-
men on the floor, I was
really pleasedd" said Hollar.
"They were never afraid to
play and they were aggres-
sive."

Winter Haven
By JEFF CANTWELL
Sports Writer
WINTER HAVEN Most everyone
knew that Winter Haven was force to be
reckoned with heading into the 2006
football season and preseason All-State
quarterback D.C. Jefferson lived up to
the hype in leadinghis Winter Haven
Blue Devils to a 21-10 victory over
Sebring in the regular season opener.
Jefferson, a 6-foot-5 junior, completed
W 8-of-ll passes for 131
tder aw .yards and a touchdown and
2 also ran one in himself for
the deciding score. Sebring
Sebrin quarterback A.C. Wilson
O put up even bigger numbers
a in the passing department,
but mostly he was scram-
bling to remain on his feet and ended up
getting sacked 10 times despite complet-
ing 12-of-28 passes for 204 yards and a
TD. Jefferson, for the most part, was able
to sit in the pocket and hope his receivers
were doing their jobs.
Sebring head coach Jared Hamlin had
to alter his game plan due to injuries to
key players like standout running back
T.J. Williams and 245-pound offensive

News-Sun
DAVENPORT What a difference a year
makes.
After beating the Ridge Community Bolts
22-0 in last year's season opener in Avon Park,
the Red Devils had to go down to the wire to
return home from Davenport with a 14-13 win
this time around.
And it was a 'tremendous backfire for the
Bolts on an onside kick that gave
the Devils the winning points. Avon Park
Ridge Community had just 1
scored and led 13-7 when it tried
the onside kick, which was Ridge Comm.
scooped up by Josue Orniz. who
returned it 50 yards to the end ,
zone for the go-ahead score.
"I told Ortiz after last week that he would
have a chance at some point to get his touch-
down," Avon Park head coach Earnest Perkins
said after getting his first win with the Devils..
"I watched that ball just bounce right into his
hands and he was gone."
Ridge Community running back Mike James
showed just how much the Bolts had improved
since their debut season last year as he rushed
for 118 yards and a touchdown.

Hunters on the prowl for big gators


The'big hunt is on., Maybe I
should have said the hunt is on
-for the big one. This hunt will
continue until Nov. 1. That
should be ample time to bag
the big one. I am talking about
alligators, big alligators.
Of course, not everyone is
going to bag a monster,.
Although any resident who
wants to try is going to gamble.
$272 for an Alligator Trapping
License and two hide valida-
tion tags. Any gator 18-inches
long or over is fair game. For
the $272, you can take two of
these ugly creatures.
Gary Morse, an FWC
spokesman said hunters were
allowed to buy as many per-
mits as.they wanted. With
4,406 permits issued to 2,155
applicants, the harvest could
total 8,812 if all tags were
filled. It's not that the state is
being so generous, we've just
got too darn many alligators
and this is a way to help solve

an over-population problem.
Maybe.
If a person can't find an alli-
gator within a few weeks in
Florida, he surely just arrived
from Mars or Jupiter. I figure
that if I drove down to the boat
ramp, I could find an alligator
in less than an hour, including
the driving time and a stop at
McDonald's on the way.
Another thing that bothers


me: I read about these couple
of fellows who are going alli-
gator hunting in a canoe. Can
you imagine a fragile canoe
against a hungry (eat anything)
alligator?:Not me. After a few
close ones with the big toothy
one, not me.
Back a few years ago, I was
fishing in Arbuckle Creek with
one of my grandsons. My boat
is a heavy duty aluminum V-
bottom. Steady as a rock and
nearly unsinkable. We were
leisurely floating down the
creek. Rounding a bend to the
left, we noticed the bank on the
left was sort of rounded up a
few feet above the water.
We had been lulled into a
peaceful kind of stupor from
just watching and admiring the
landscape. The top of the bank
was in deep shade and as I
watched, something in the
shade moved ever so slightly. I

asked my grandson, "Did you
see that?" "I didn't see any-
thing," he replied.
We were within a few feet
of the bank and as we were
straining our eyes to try to
make out what it was that I
thought I saw move, a huge
alligator rose up from his rest-
ing place in the shade and
came rushing full speed toward
us in the boat.
It was panic time! We were
too close to the bank and
broadside to that scaly jugger-
naut, who didn't slow one bit


as he hit the water. Luckily, the
water was just deep enough to
cover his back as he went
under the boat. Somebody let
out an awful blood-curdling
screech.
The boat rocked from side to
side and I swear we heard his
rough back scrape the bottom
of the boat. It scared my grand-
son and I will admit I was a lit-
tle concerned.
To this day, we're still not
sure which of us let out that
screech.
You won't find me out there
in a canoe chasing anything
that big. Have you ever seen
the teeth on one of those armor
plated throw-backs? I'll stick

came with 7:06 left in the second quarter on an 8-
yard end-around. With the score only 14-0 at the
half, the Dragons would need to crank up the
intensity to put the game away.
They did just that in the third thanks to
Williams' two biggest plays of the night. His 46-
yard run was followed up with an 18-yard touch-
down run as he carried a few Terriers with him
into the end zone.
The second Rasmussen TD came from just 1
yard out in the third quarter; going right up the
middle.
Lake Placid was able to overcome four fum-
bles in the rout, but Moore Haven wasn't so
lucky. At one point, both teams combined for
three consecutive fumbles early in the- second
quarter.
Stephen Gist got in on the action in the fourth
quarter with a 4-yard run up the gut for six to
make it 41-0 and send the Lake Placid crowd into
its final frenzy.
As impressive as the Dragons' running attack
was, the real story was the defense. Big hits from
Williams and a sack from Brandon Jones set the
tone for the demolition and Maddox couldn't
help but chuckle after the game.
"In Lake Placid, it rains every Friday night,"
said Maddox shaking his head over the four fum-
bles. "We worked really hard on the things we
didn't do very well against Sebring. This is a

lineman Tyler O'Bannon. But
Hamlin wasn't making any
excuses after losing to the tal-
ented Blue Devils in a game
that easily could have gone the
other way for Sebring.
"It's a tough one," Hamlin
said of the loss. "I'm not mak-
ing any excuses because of the
injured players. I'm proud of
these guys, they busted those
obstacles and had, a lot of fight
in them.
"We know we've got to get it
going. Winter Haven's a great
team and their quarterback is
very talented."
Because of Williams (ankle)
and O'Bannon. (broken wrist)
being injured, Hamlin had
Wilson taking some second-
half snaps out of the shotgun
formation, which allowed the
talented quarterback to gain
some time and get some passes
off, which translated into a big
game for tight end Kyle
Hoffner.
"Kyle had a great game,"
Hamlin said.' "We had to get
him the ball ... they were dou-
bling Sam (Robinson) some so
that left Kyle and he probably
caught more passes tonight than
all of last season."


to fishing .
Speaking of fishing Gary
Albin, owner of Trails End
Fishing Resort on Lake
Istokpoga, says the fishing has
been good on the lake. Anglers
have been bringing in good
numbers of bluegills, shell-
crackers and live wells have
shown several good catches of
specks in the past couple of
weeks. Sounds like a Winner to
me.
So long, I gotta get the boat
hitched up.

great win for us. All 17 of our kids got to play that
dressed out. It's just a testament. Folks are always
saying 'you've only got 18 kids' but if you get
'em all in shape, they can play."


Hoffner, a senior, had five
catches for 100 yards a TD, and
wide receiver Robinson also
had five catches for 95 yards.
Sebring went three and out
on the opening possession of
the game and Winter Haven
answered with a 16-play, 68-
yard scoring drive.
The Devils mostly ran the
ball on the drive, with Jefferson
running a bootleg right from the
8 for the score. Austin McCoy's
kick raised the lead to 7-0 with
3:14 left in the game.
Following the first of two
awesome kickoff returns by
SRobinson, Sebring took over on
its 40 and Wilson hit Hoffner
for 5 yards on fourth-and-8 on
the Devils 40 and followed with
a 35-yard scoring strike as
Sebring tied the game.
Stephen Sauls recovered a
Blue Devils fumble on the
ensuing possession, but the
Sebring offense sputtered and
'punted after gaining 7 yards.
The Devils came back and
drove down for the winning
score, keyed by a 42-yard trap
play run by Dasmon Williams.
The senior fullback, still breath-
ing hard, scored on a plunge
from the 3 on the next play to
give his team all the points they
would need. McCoy's kick
raised the lead to 14-7 with 5:49
left in the third period.


The half played out without
Sebring getting any more
points. Kyle Long recovered a
fumble for Sebring to halt a
serious Winter Haven drive at
the Blue Streak 23.
Winter Haven scored on the
opening possession of the sec-
ond half, with Jefferson hitting
Chris Clay for a 41-yard touch-
down strike to cap the 71-yard,
five-play drive. McCoy's kick
with 9:48 left in the third period
raised the count to 21-7.
The Blue Streaks came right
back when tailback Willie
Lowe ran for 12 yards and
Wilson hit Robinson for a 15-
yard reception. Sebring had to
settle for a 29-yard Lezamna
field goal to,close to 21-10.
Sebring's tough defense pret-
ty much shut down the Devils
from here, but Sebring's
offense couldn't finish red zone
drives. Sebring drove to the
Winter Haven 22 and 18, but
then went backwards due to
sacks.

"That kid is a player,"
Perkins said. "I went up to him
after the game and told him
that. He has a gift and it is
amazing that the kid is only a
sophomore. He is only going td
get better.
"That was a great football
team we just played," Perkins
said. "We had our hands full but
we kept pounding ,. away.
Defensively, I think we hung in
there.
"We are coming together as a
team. These kids are committed
to what we are trying to do. It
might not be pretty but it is a
win."

The Red Devils tied the game
