Utility rate increases are imminent -


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
AVON PARK -The council
passed an authorizing resolu-
tion MondaN for the city to
apply for a loan through the
State Reoll ing Fund Loan
Program
City Manager C.B. Shirey
said the -loan \ ill pay for the
planning, design and engineer-
ing of the expansion of the
s astessater treatment plant.
"\Ve hope to enter into a part-
nership ith Sun "N Lake of
Sebring Improvement District
to expand the \\aste\\ater treat-


ment plant and provide waste-
water reuse capability Shirey
said. "but negotiations are still
,under way."
Whether or not an interlocal
agreement with Sun 'N Lake is
formed. Shirey said the upgrade
and expansion of the waste-
water treatment plant is
extremely important' for the
city. ' ..
The expansion will accom-
modate growth and increase
revenue to the city in ad val-
orem taxes. fire/rescue assess-
ment fees. and water customers.
A utility rate studN for the


water and wastewater r system
was conducted by PMG
Associates Inc., of Deerfield
Beach, for the purpose of ana-
1.zing the existing utility sy.s-
tem rate structure and determin-
ing w whether it meets the finan-
cial demands of the s-stem. A

By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
The, race for circuit court is.
unlike any other race in this
busy election cycle
Want to know how each can-
didate feels about any of
today's hot-button issues such
as abortion, or gay marriage?
They can't tell you. '
In fact, there's very little they
can tell you.
This is because the candi-
dates aren't allowed to com-
ment on any issue they might
rule on .as a judge. And since
the circuit court has jurisdiction
over a: wide variety of issues,
the candidates are severely lim-
ited in what they can say.
However, they are able to
talk about their backgrounds
and experience, which they did
at James McCollum's law
office in downtown Sebring
Thursday.
Although the volume of the
campaigns may not be as loud
Sas others, the circuit judge posi-


tion is an important one in
Florida's judicial system. The
majority of jury trials, both
criminal and civil, are argued at
the circuit court. The circuits
are also called courts of general
jurisdiction, because of the
wide range of cases they see.
Highlands County, along
with Hardee and Polk counties,
are in the Tenth Judicial Circuit.
There are 20 total. The number
of judges in each circuit is
based on the caseload and pop-
ulation of the area.
The two seats in this elec-
tion, Groups 27 and 28, are new
seats opened by the Florida
Legislature because of the cir-
cuit's large caseload.
Following are brief profiles
on each of the five candidates:
Group 27
Ernest Jones, 63, has worked
primarily in civil law through-
out his career. He has run his

FOREVER!
SERMON-HEBREWS 7


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
'News-Sun
SEBRING The state man-
dated Highlands County
Community/ Coalition. for
Substance Abuse Reduction
held its second annual recruit-
ment breakfast Thursday morn-
ing hoping to engage social
agencies, businesses and indi-
viduals in the effort to help:
young people at risk.'
The statistics are sobering:-
Alcohol is the number one drug
of choice for young people, and
it can take only six months for
an adolescent to become an
alcoholic.
According to the 2004
Florida Youth Substance Abuse
Survey, in Highlands County
the average, age of earliest alco-
hol use is 11.4 years of age.,
Fifty-five percent of middle
school students reported using


alcohol, and almost _70 percent
of graduating high school sen-
iors had used alcohol. Nearly 20
percent of high school seniors
reported getting drunk at least
once a month.
Worse, the use of alcohol has
increased from 2002 to 2004,
and more young- people use
alcohol in Highlands County
than in the state as a.Vhole --
22.3 percent as opposed to 20.8
percent.
And disapproval of alcohol
has weakened over time, drop-
ping from 68.3 percent of stu-
dents thinking it was wrong in
2000, to 62.9 percent thinking
so in 2004.
Alcohol is not the only drug
being abused by adolescents.
Tobacco, including smokeless,
tobacco, is used by over a third
of high school seniors.
Inhalants (like gasoline or


WD 40) are used by more than
10 percent of middle schoolers,
and marijuana by more than 20
percent. Over a third of high
school seniors have used mari-
juana.
Even club drugs, like
Ecstasy, have been used by
about 4 percent of the county's
adolescents by their senior year
in high school.
As troubling as the substance
abuse itself, is the risky behav-
ior that can result from the
abuse.
For example, alcohol related
automobile crashes are the
number one killer in the 15 to
24 year old age. group, and in
Florida alone, more than 48,000
girls, between the ages of 15
and 19 became pregnant in
2003.

backs in funding prevention

programs further hamper local
attempts at intervention.
The HCCC does not provide
services itself. Instead it is
designed to create a network
helping the spectrum of agen-
cies working with young people
afid substance abuse coordinate
their efforts. One of its main
charges is to help raise aware-
ness within the community.
In that regard the HCCC
takes part in the annual teen
summits designed to reach ado-
lescent girls, and Red Ribbon
Week, a national event held in
schools that highlights the dan-
gers of drug and alcohol use.
Laura Van Horn, the drug
free schools resource teacher
for the school district, heads the
coalition. She wants people to
know their help is needed.
For example, this year the
school board is instituting a ran-


dom drug testing policy in its
three high schools. Students
who drive on campus, athletes
and members of co-cuiricular
or extracurricular activities, and
students whose parents volun-
teer them, will be placed in a
test-taking pool. Van Horn
hopes the community will step
forward and find ways to
reward those students whose
tests show no drug use.
Donations, for instance, of
coupons for food, movie passes,
or school supplies that can be
distributed to students who
remain drug free.
For more information on
,HCCC, or to help, call Van
Horn at 471-5662. She also can
be reached, at vanhomL@'high-
lands.kl2.fl.us.

Thor Log: May leave hiking friends behind; parents catching up


Editor's note: Every week,
the News-Sun reprints a log by
Thor Knutson, now in Oregon,
on a Pacific Crest Trail hike
from Mexico to Canada. Maps,
photos and video are at
ThorHike.com.
Tuesday, Aug. 22
Really unusual terrain today.
We are walking on what
appears to be volcanic pumice.
Pine trees grow out of it but no
other plants. No weeds. No
grass. Nothing.
The land is flat with long dis-
tances between water. We are
carrying 5 liters (1.32 gallons)
each now. Sure makes the pack
heavy.
We caught up with Knees. at
Crater Lake. Tame is ahead. He
hikes very fast on long days,
then takes days off to rest, so
we catch up with him again.
Hiked 22 miles today.
Stopped at 4:30 p.m. Camping
with Knees, Red and Gary.
Wednesday, Aug. 23
Thunder in the distance woke
me at 5:30 a.m. Scrambled to,
find and put up my door flap. It
rained a few minutes later, with
:hail.
It alia s seems to hail when


Of rivers and


it rains.
It turned really cold after
that, but by 9 a.m., the rain was
gone with a beautiful day in the
mid-50s.. I can feel the fall
weather in the air. I am going
north and the cold weather is
coming soon.
I have really enjoyed the
company of Red and Gary, but
the time is coming soon when I
will need to move on. Stopping
at 4:30 p.m. is too early for me.
I need to do another five miles.
I'm jutting putting off the
time when I will have to move
. ahead, make new hiking friends
or hike alone. The comfort of
old hiking companions is hard
to give up, but if I am to finish
before snow, I must move on.
A few more days.
Thursday, Aug. 24
Started hiking about 7 a.m.
Reached a resort for campers at
1:30 p:m. Heard down the road
was' a great pizza place.
Reached it to find it was only
open on the weekend.
Went back to the little store at
the resort and had hot dogs.
Took. a, shower and put my
dirty clothes back on. Still felt
good:
Rested until about 5 p'.m.,


hiked to a lake, and camped for
the night.
Friday, Aug. 25
Woke up with an ear ache
and not able to hear too well in
one ear.
Mosquitoes are back in full
force. Very little spray left. Will-
re-supply in Sisters, Ore.
Hiked through a large
burned-out area today. Red and
Gary saw two bears. They were
gone when I came by. Camped
with Red,, Gary, and Knees.
Saturday, Aug. 26
Ear feels a little better. Did
20 miles today.
Caught up with Go Big, who
was off the trail for a week with
a torn muscle. Said there was a
big fire ahead and we'd have to
go around. Third' fire in less
than three weeks.. : :-
Reached Elk Lake this after-
noon. Has a small restaurant
with a limited menu:
Hambiirgers. chili aind fries
. A mile' hike down to the
restaurant and a nile hike back
up. Not a problem if the, litc.
food.
Camping in the woods with
Red, Gar-. Knees and the mos-
quitoes.


Irene's Log: Don't like mountain roads


Thor's parents, Harold and
Irene Knutson, are driving
California, shadowing his
progress by car to see some of
the places he's been.
The first time we crossed the
trail was on Interstate 8 coming
into San Diego. We lived in San
Diego for eight years and Thor
was born there.
I could see this trail crossing
almost barren hills, winding for
miles. The solitude of this walk
was what my first thoughts
were. There was not a town,.
house or other human being for
miles and miles. No matter
what happened, 'there was no
one nor nothing to depend on
but yourself.
We spent two, days in
. ld 1l\i~ld a tourist town,
Sloc.-ted high in the mountains.
Ver pret
\\e \%ent to Big-Bear a
very steep and winding, climb
by car- but thatididn't prepare
us for the high Sierras We tried
driving to Kenned. Meadows,
bcL u se it seems to play such an
important part in all the hikes,
lives.
We didn't nual:e it. I love the
mountains and haj\e ne\er been
afraid of dn'ug an\\%here on
the Ea_,t Coast Not .o here. I
have never cried driving a road
as narrow, as high, or as wind-
ing as tlids one -

nothing but space as far as I thought someone should be

go, we found a place wide I am so happy I didn't know
enough to turn around. where Thor was walking when
I refused to stay in the car he was there.

treatment function of the plant."
And, Tellshow assured
Fletshauer, the treatment plant's
backup generator has been test-
ed and is ready when needed.
The attorneys for Tyrrell and
SpringLake meet today with
Judge Ellen S. Masters in an
emergency telephone confer-
ence in an attempt to alleviate
the flooding issue.
"Why the hell didn't they fix
that problem while that whole
drought was going on," Tyrrell
said Thursday during a phone
Interview, explaining that
nobody from SpringLake has
contacted her to find a viable
solution since Langford's ruling
against eminent domain in
May. '
Tyrrell said there's a dry
creek bed that runs from
Arbuckle \Creek at
SpringLake's four-pump station
that runs between her property
and "The Island" and back to
the creek down stream that
could be cleared of brush and
silt.
At a cost of about $75 per
hour, she said, a bulldozer
could open the way for pumped


water to find its way back to
Arbuckle without flooding her
property, which already goes
under naturally from rain and
runoff.
But the district hasn't sought
that or other alternatives to the
denied flood easement, she
said.
"Meanwhile, they've been
calling me non-stop asking if
they can pump," Tyrrell said. "I
said they could for a fee."
Her proposed fee is $25,000
per month plus damages for


viable candidate, he said.
Kevin Abdoney, 35, also of
Lakeland, started his career as a
public defender in Tampa in
1997. He spent three years as
the division chief over child-
abuse crimes, a position
Carmichael also held. He cur-
rently works in a private prac-
tice dealing with criminal and
family. law, and juvenile
dependency.
Abdoney said that the large
caseload he deals with on a
daily basis in his practice gives
him the "skill to evaluate cases
quickly. My legal sensibilities
are more suited to being a

judge," Abdoney said. "I can
make decisions based on what's
the right thing to do from a non-
biased, impartial viewpoint."
Group 28
John Stargel, 42, a Lakeland
resident, has the most name
recognition of any candidate in
either race. Stargel has been a
member of the Florida House of
Representatives since 2002. He


on their September statements
that the rate will become effec-
tive Oct. 1.
One new concept being con-
sidered is the conservation rate.
"Currently," Shirey:said, "the
more you use the less you pay
per 1,000 gallons. This would
make the second 1,000 gallons
a higher price. If we have rates
that reflect conservation, people
who now water their lawns
seven days a week may cut
back to only watering on the
prescribed days." .
Staff is expected to draft a
resolution to implement water
rate and fee increases to present
to council for consideration
within 30 days.

Roland Dilley & Son Inc., made sai
a request for the city to take bal
action by either approving the
city's purchase of a- portion of
the Dilley property along State
Road 64 (located within the
Avon Park Executive Airport's
Runway Protection Zone), or
by adopting a resolution to
reconfigure the runway, to
exclude the Runway Protection
Zone from the Dilley property.
It was Furr's suggestion that-
the city buy the property using a
loan and repay it using a grant.
"I don't have a problem pur-
chasing the property." Shirey
said, :'but would like to have a
guarantee of a grant first."
Macklin believed the two

not the only options, and point-
ed out that there are probably
still other properties in conflict
with the airport's Runway
Protection Zone.
When Macklin gave council
members an opportunity to
make a motion and no one
stepped up. Councilman Doug
Eason pointed out that by mak-
ing no motion then a decision
would be-made to do nothing..-
When council still failed to
make any motion, moving on to
the next', item on the agenda,
Furr came forward for clarifica-
tion. He inquired as to whether
or not, he was correct in under-
standing that the city had just
declined both offers by way of
making no decision. Macklin
confirmed his deduction.

prolonged standing water.
Tellshow said his property is
only responsible for one-inch of
flooding at any given time and
that "it flows off of her proper-
ty in three hours."
He blames Tyrrell for her
woes, saying that she knowing-
ly bought into a flood plain
when she purchased her 38
acres "as is" at a land auction.
"I know, I was there standing
right next to her," Tellshow
said, attributing Tyrrell's floods
to the "17 miles of river" of the
Arbuckle Creek.
Tellshow said the legal battle
with Tyrrell could sour his sale
deal with Eduardo P. Boado,
who has already begun to tran-
sition-in his management team
but hasn't closed.
"If they decide the problem is
too big, it could cost me mil-
lions," Tellshow said.
In an e-mail to SpringLake
director Bob Aquilina and oth-
ers, Boado outlines a four-point
plan' to acquire Tyrrell's proper-
ty.
In it, the district would
deposit a non-refundable
$50,000 with Tyrrell to buy at
least 60 days to have three
appraisers value her land.
She would hire one appraiser,
the district: would hire one
appraiser and a third would
intervene if the first two had
"drastic discrepancies."
"During the period between
now and when the appraisers


finalized their work,
kSpringLake Improvement
District) would be allowed to
run the pumping station at will
to maintain water levels
required by law," Boado wrote
in his e-mail.
With completed appraisals in
hand, SpringLake would
deposit 25 percent of-the pur-
chase price and enter into a
Purchase and Sale Agreement
with 'Tyrrell, closing with 90
days of the contract.
"To date, (SpringLake) and
others have spent hundreds of
thousands of dollars litigating
the difficulties," Boado said,
responding to Tyrrell's $25,000
monthly fee offer. "(Tyrrell) has
won and new options need to be
considered ... it doesn't make
any sense to continue down the
current path. The courts have
ruled against (SpringLake) and
don't appear to be ready to give
(the district) or the villages of
SpringLake any relief."
Boado moved to SpringLake
a few years ago with a vision
for its future.
"Today, (the district) has an
opportunity to bring
SpringLake to its full poten-
,tial," he said in the e-mail. "But
it won't happen unless we work
to the future and leave the past
behind."
Boado could not be reached
at his home or cell phone num-
bers. A message was left mid-
afternoon.

Helpful hints can keep garden growing strong
along a h in nhrub orernrmhni ibi.rils u ttentote~C


* This is the first in a two-part
series.

Here are some garden tips I
have found useful, thought, I
would pass them along.
1. Groundbreaking secret-
Water the day before breaking
new ground. Moist' soil turns
over easily but soaking wet
soidries in clods.
2. Sow quickly and cheap.
Instead of buying expensive
seed tapes, make your own
using toilet paper. First, roll out
a length of toilet paper. Line
your favorite seed down the


center, and fold lengthwise into
thirds. Dampen tfhepaper slight-
ly so that it sticks together. Let
it dry. When you are red' to
plant, ]a\ the tape in your gar-
den rows, and cover with moist
soil. '. ' '
3. Track our teruiizer. \hen
fciilizing ,)our la%%ii, if you mix
SLhttle flour in l\ih thte dr) fer-
tilizer, oti'l1 be able to see
ex\cthl where you've spread it
and identify any. areas you
missed. Use this,! tip. when.
you're'planting seeds, too, and.
you'll never over seed one par-
ticular area.


4. .Prevent'
drowned plants. If
you have, trouble
telling whether or not
your 'plants need
watering, try the pen-
cil test. Push j pencil
down in the soil. and
then ren\ "e it. Don't
water the plant when
there. i still soil oni.

water if the pencil

8. Cover diain holes in

used a fabric softener sheet in
the laundry, give it a second
life. Justfold it a few tiine_ -ind

The soil. don'tt escape but
excess water will esild drain

o. Catch drips front hanging

hanging plants, slip a shower

Then. if water or dirt .washes

1. How do you feel about
funding groIth?
The state mandate for con-
trolled grov.th is that you must
shuow need tor '-ro%\ th and the
ability to fund the inlra1'truciure
for tfat gri th '
2. How will impact fees
'play into the future planning
for Highlands County?
Impact fees or, some othei
means must be proven available'
(to the state) in order to ha"e
sustainable growth Grow th
should contribute 'their fair
share for the cost of the growth-
attributable to that growth in
i %which they are involved. I
believe 'that good conmmono
sense must prevail so that we do
not shut down our-growth but
control it with the amount of
impact fees that are required to,
maintain a controlled growth,
-but are not prohibitive to the
point that we have made it
impossible financially to sus-
tamn growth and the adopted
level of service.
3; What do you see as the
biggest problem in Highlands
County right now? What
would you do about it?
Proper planning, we must be
able to visualize all of
Highlands County as we would
like to have it develop and
direct and encourage that devel-
opment. We must contain our
ad .valorem tax millage and
even roll it back, when possible.
If we controlfour spending, save
for. the, future and I, e within
'our means, we can make
Highlands County the best it
can be.'
4. Is there anything broken'
in the governmental process
and if so what is it-and how
would you fix it?
Nothing is broken, however
nothing is perfect, therefore we
should improve upon the meth-
ods and systems that we have.
5. In terms of county gov-
ernment administration, how,'
iill we address the changes''
'Such as Carl Cools .retire-

We have a number of people

to retire. As these future retire-

Breaking up with 'toxic friends' shouldn't be hard


Society exposes us to a lot of
impurities and toxicity within
our environment. Unnoticed for
years, we live with them and
among them while they pollute
our lives. You call this kind
of environmental pollution
"Toxic Friends."
The first step is to acknowl-
edge that this friend is toxic and
filling you with impurities,
whether it's whining, gossip,
maliciousness, jealousy, hatred,
self absorbents, lying, stealing
or criticism. Such relationships
are sometimes unhealthy.
How do you extricate your-
.self from 'such.:a relationship
once you have identified that
the relationship is toxic? Ask
yourself, do I want to remain
friends with this person who
has overdosed me with bitter-
ness, indifference and dispar-
agement? '
In her book, "Six Toxic
Friends," Jan Yager lists them:
1. The promise breaker -
disappoints you Promises,
most fikelI, because she repeat-
edly disappointed during her
formative Nears.
2. Double crosser This
negati e friend betrays you big
time. Spreading rumors, silent
betraN al. stops talking to you
w without notice.
3. Self absorbed.- Doesn't
take time to listen to you. Will


eat at your self esteem. This self
absorbed person does not care
to listen, only when she's wait-
ing to speak.
4. Discloser This is just
between us. She nods her head,
but unfortunately that promise
will last only as long as it takes
her ,to get to her phone or, e-
, mail. Avoid sharing secrets with
her unless you want it shared
with others. ;
5. The. Competitor -A little
bit of competition is healthy
and to be expected. An appro-
priate amount of competition
will motivate and stimulate.
Too much competition between
friends starts. to destroy the
friendship.
6. The fault finder -,
Nothing \'ou do, say or wear is
good enough for this overly
critical friend. Probably raised
by extremely judgmental par-


ents who were also rearing
equally. hypercritical siblings.
Being criticized during forma-
tive years laid the foundation
for her being an overly critical,
adult.
Here are few that weren't
mentioned in her book.
1 The tyrannical friend -
Complains that you don't do
enough for her. Always wants
to fight or cuss you out without
provocation. A. friend who
craves and demands more of
you continuously,

Public schools

are not failing
Editor:
There are crises in every
public school district in the
state of Florida and some of
these are prevalent across the
state, in urban and, rural dis-
tricts, alike.. Goy. Bush has
claimed that our public schools
are failing, but I emphatically
state that the\ are not. What the
school districts have, failed to
do is to overcome the handicaps
placed upon them by Gov. Bush
and the state legislature.
In my conscious memory of
45 years, the state of Florida
has underfunded most of the
school districts by not funding
the growth of students in that
time frame. Gov. Bush. and leg-.
islature has for eight years
handed down unfunded man-
dates, which the voters of this
state outlawed more than 20,
years ago. And the preponder-
ant growth of problems (legal,
emotional, mental and social)
did not evolve in schools, but in
families and general society.
Those who refuse to confront
this critical dilemma choose to
blame the schools, instead of
pursuing the cause of it; indif-
ferent state government and a
dysfunctional society.
Three related issues in
Highlands County include
attendance, truancy (dropouts)
and bullying. It appears that
state laws "allow" for students
to miss up to 90 days of the
school year and still pass on to
the next grade, regardless of the
resulting vacuum of learning
created. The truancy/dropout.
rate has continued to climb,
because it has been reported .the
school authorities prefer that
truants drop out, rather than
lower grade scores on Florida
Comprehensive Achievement


Test aind Lea'e No Child
Behind
The most glaring 'in\ visible"
issue (tragedy is bully ing.
Because we live in a lineious
society, schoolauthorities hesi-
,tate to confront bullies for fear
of lawsuits. The bullies'-and
their families even bully the
teachers h'and administrators.
.threateiiing them if they press,
charges. Vandalism and other
* forms of intimidation have
occurred, so the "message is',
clear." Thus. the victims, con-
sidered to'hbe weak or "differ-
ent," are traumatized for years,
if not for.life....
There is a movement to-
develop a ground swell effort to
.persuade the state legislature to
modify\ the law-s go% earning our
schools to pro% ide school offi-
cials clear authonriy to enforce
attendance, truancy dropout
.and bullying laws. Because
attendance is the basis for fund-
ing schools, it would behoove
the legislature to tighten regula-
tions. Because predilection of
crime accompanies truancy,
tighter controls on attendance,
and subsequent legal remedies
conferred upon the truants',
families should be included.
along with legal protection for
teachers and administrators.
Failure to exercise current regu-
'lations by authorities needs to
be addressed.
The traumatic and eviscerat-
ing effects of bullying upon
victims demands recourse
against bullies and their fami-
lies. Unfortunately. the
Education Committee of the
state senate iof all committees)
blocked a bill. that would have
addressed the bully issue. The
modern versionn of bullying is
cyber-bullying. Chat rooms,
MySpace, etc. can be used to
printall sorts of vile trash ...

Unintended

'J recently heard someone

stances of our real estate mar-
ket to a' "Perfect Storm."
That's 4a good analogy since

been hit with 'a quadruple

The average price of a sin-
gle family residence in

129 percent from $84,947 in

Hazard insurance rates.

Property taxes have
increased by an average of 30
percent:
There have been 18 con-
secutime rate increases by the
Federal Reserve, pushing mort-
gage rates to 7 percent or high-
er.-
Now add the increase,'in
cost of a modest single family
home by 10 percent due- to.
impact fees and you have a
"quintuple whammy," a Perfect
Storm indeed!
Some, say that impact fees
mill only increase the cost of
new construction, nclt existing
homes. I disagree."
Like all free markets, the real
estate market is efficientt" in
rationalizing prices. The per-
ceived advantages of new% ver-
sus existing construction is
already discounted in the price
of existing homes Therefore
When the price. df 'new con-
.struction increases with no
value added, an equivalent
existing, home will quickly
increase in price dollar for dol-
Jar. -
Most buyers of modestly
priced homes already struggle
%with accumulating the cash to
close on their purchase.
Builders cannot' absorb fees
within their already squeezed.
margins, and will pass them
along as price increases.
Because impact fees add no
value to the property, the
appraised value will not sup-
port the increased price, and
banks will' not loan money to
cover the difference. Sellers of
existing homes will quickly
increase their prices as well,
presenting buyers with the
same financing problem. Thus
buyers will have to bring addi-
tional cash to closing to' cover
the financing -deficit. This will
push many otherwise qualified
buyers out of our local housing
market, or force them to
increase installment debt to
cover higher do% n pas ments.
We are told that there will be
programs for buyers of "afford-
able and workforce" housing
that' eliminate impact fees.

%%ill not qualify for any subsidy.'
There will be unintended
consequences of high impact
fees. I can think of many. but
here are three: ,
S There are rriany.independ-
ent contractors in our rural
county -- entrepreneurs who
pay for their own health insur-
ance with no group plan avail-
able. When the choice comes to
paying a health insurance pre-
mium or paying back a $10,000
loan to cover closing costs to
put a roof over their family's
heads w hat do you think most
people x ill do? Yet xhen they
need health care services and
show upat the' emergency room
with no insurance, who will
pay?
When'the acquisition cost
of a rental property increases
, by 10 percent due to impact
fees, that cost w ill be passed on
to tenants, many of whom are
already struggling to make the
rent. When they can no longer
afford housing and seek gov-
emmnent assistance, who. will,
pay?
As our high school and
returning college graduates
transition into careers, they,
will want to- realize the
American dream of home own-
ership. When the "Perfect
Storm" of property values,
taxes, insurance, financing and
now impact fees turns them to
other counties to start, their
families, who will pay?
No one argues with the need
for impact fees at some level.


But establishing fees for our
small, rural county that are
among the highest in the state
will set in motion a chain of
unintended consequences.
I" I believe any fee higher than.
$3,000 on a home in the first
year -of implementation will
become a regressive tax that
will hurt the most vulnerable in
our community. I urge the coRm-
mission to consider the conse-
quences of the current plan.

Smoke, mirrors

and new clothes

Editor:
We have all heard, a lot about
"impact taxes" (fees) for the
past several months. The coun-
ty commission and the school
board would like us all to think
that a million people have sud-
denly moved in on us, 'and the
air supply is running out. In my
opinion, the facts make that
quite an exaggeration.
If you still have your
Highlands Today newspaper
from Saturday, July 29, 2006,
take a look 'at page 17A. On
the right hand side of the page,
second block, it lists the total
operating revenues in 1995-96
school year as $57,629,000 and
the 2005-06 operating revenues
as $94,817,154. An increase in
10 years of $37,188,154. Now
look down to the block marked
Number of Students. The num-
ber for the 1995-96 year was


,10,915 and for the 2005-06
school year 11.968. An ovei.ll
increase of 1,053 students over
a 10-year period. According to
the left hand column, the
school board had $14,
614,962.11 left over on July 1,
2006, Then compare .total rev-
enues 'from 2005-06 and 2006-
07, another increase of
$55,422,873. Without the addi-
tional $3,748 to $6,292 per
unit, impact taxes... .
In an article written by Gary
Pinnell on Friday, Aug. 18, he
stated that the county commis-
sioners were in a "Catch-22" in
talking about "a new program"
called "concurrence." This is
not a new program.
You can read 'the Florida

The concurrency require-
ments do not apply to all of the
existing lots/land, that have
been sitting around the county
for decades. It applies to tle
land that has requested land use
changes, such as changing the
zoning from Agricultural use to
Residential, (such as plowing
down orange groves to make
new housing communities,
etc). It does not stop our being
able to use property as it is cur-
rently zoned. All of the lots in

taxes for roads, etc. They will
not be hindered from building
as zoned, if we do not imple-
ment impact taxes. The own-
ers of those properties having
been paying their share, with-
out even using the roads.
The county commissioners
have been aware of the concur-
rency requirements prior to the
past week, and in spite of them,
have been approving large
scale land use, comprehensive
plan amendments, anyway,
contrary to the state statute
requirements. Now they want
to kill our economy by impact
taxes!
If you think that it won't
affect you, think again. The
cost of housing in this area is
already unattainable for more
than half of our population.
The impact tax study stated that
the median (or average)
income is about $30,000, and
the tax would be equal to 54
percent of that annual income.
To meet general lending guide-
lines for an 80 percent loan
with 20 percent down on a sin-
gle family home and keep the
monthly housing expense in
line of around 28 percent, a
home shopper would have to
have more than $19,000 clos-
ing costs, just to purchase a
home at a total sales price' of
about $95,000. Add to that an
impact fee between $10,000 to
$15,000; they would be looking
at needing to save up around
$33,700 to buy a new home.
, The lenders, have intimated
they will not finance the impact
tax, as it does not add value to
the home. Where can we find.a
new home at this price?
Rentals, well, the ordinance
for the impact taxes has' a tax
for rental units also, discourag-
ing the construction of these as
well.


Thinking about adding a
garage to your home with an air
conditioned room upstairs? If it
adds square-footage to your
home, according to Section
4.02 of the proposed ordinance,
you'll be charged too!
The cost of living in this
county is already climbing fast,
and sufficient paying jobs are
few. People will have to move
to other areas to be able to
make ends meet, as new jobs
will not materialize with new
business having to pay. these
incredible taxes as well.
Property values will drop, as
there will be less and less peo-
ple able to afford to live here.
They will have to seek work
outside of the county, and will
move to other areas rather than
pay the cost of commuting.
If these additional taxes ate
so great for our county, why
does the ordinance provide in
Section 4.071 the Creation of
.Economic Development Fund
"... fee may place the county in
a non-competitive position
with other local governments
.." and "facilitate the provi-
sion of economic development
incentives to mitigate any real
or perceived disadvantage
occurring from the imposition
of impact fees ..." and in
Section 4.08 the Creation of
Affordable and Workforce
Housing Trust Fund "...
shall be appropriated to provide
for the creation and mainte-
nance of Affordable and
Workforce Housing within the
county based on qualifying cri-
teria within an Affordable and
Workforce Housing Program
established by subsequent reso-
lution."
The state did a study, avail-
able at the. following link,
www.floridalcir.gov/task-
force/111505tablel.pdf to
show where there may be unre-.
alized revenue available to
each county. Some have men-,
*tioned that Highlands should


increase the tax on gas, but
according to this report, we are
already being taxed at the max-
imum rate for the state.
Even though the millage rate
for property taxes was lowered
by .5, we will still be paying
more, and thus the county col-
lecting more revenue, due to
increases in property values ...
but they still want more?
Many of the developers
seeking these large scale
amendments for land use
changes have no intention of
putting a shovel to the earth,
they are making the land more
valuable by having it rezoned
for residential use, and re-sell-
ing it, causing the county to
jump through hoops as if thou-
sands of people are anxiously
waiting to buy all of the units in
these "proposed" develop-
ments. The Department of
Community Affairs. wants to
know how our county will pay
for the impact of "all the peo-
ple" that will fill all of these
units, thus the impact taxes ...
However, the concurrency
requirements include water and
wastewater capacity, and the
proposed impact taxes have
nothing for that.
Go ahead, say it, the explo-
sive-growth is imaginary. Are
we growing, yes, we were,,
about 3 percent. Will it contin-
ue again? That depends on
what the commission does.
When it is all said and done,
this ordinance should be called
"The Moratorium on Growth -
Impact Tax of 2006."

Americans

don't scare

Editor:
Another year has passed
when "the eagle cried." The
terrorists thought that they
could take us down, but they


forgot all they have to do is
get us riled up and we will
show them what we will and
can do. Others thought they
could take us down, but they
found out how we will stand
together shoulder to shoulder,
for we have been going through
this time and time over.
More than 400,000 have
died since 1941 and you think
you can scare us? Like I said,
we do not scare.
When we see our flag com-
ing down the street leading the
parade, our hearts fill with
pride and we get a lump in our
throats. We will and always
will stand tall, for you cannot
understand what pride we have
and feel.
Do you think blowing up our
buildings or trying to fly
through them will change us?
That spirit that we hold in our
hearts, you can not or ever will
take from us.
When I watched the news on
Aug. 16 and saw our fighter
jets escorting the plane from
London down,-like I said,' you
can not ever take our freedom
from us or our country.

Editor:
Finally we have a voice. I am
,referring to Operation Free
Jean Claude Meus. Although I
have read many editorials
about the injustice in the Jean
Claude Meus case and written
and spoken myself V, ith many'
members of this community,
there is more power in numbers
and that is what we have now.
The editorials have been great


and.should continue t6 pour in
to the newspaper.
Jean Claude is the fiancee of
my sister, Rebecca Chenoweth,
and we dearly love him. We
have found out through the
injustice done to him the havoc
wreaked upon the families of
those with innocent loved ones
behind prison bars.
I attended the meeting held
in Avon Park by this wonderful
group of business leaders anid
concerned citizens that have
followed this case and are
aghast that Jean Claude is still
in prison when facts have
shown that this man should
have never been behind bars in
the first place. If ever a legal
case was wrong from the start,
this one definitely was.
At the meeting I had the
opportunity to listen to Ashley
Moore's recall of the events
that tragic night. Now a beauti-
ful young woman at the age of
17, she vividly recalls that fate-
ful night she lost her mother
and younger sister. She remem-
bers hearing the warning blare
of Jean Claude's horn and the
lights coming towards the van.
She' also recalls how Jean
Claude came to her as she was
trapped in the van and reas-
sured her that she was not
going to die.
She questions why the
authorities never asked her
what occurred that night since
she was definitely a witness.
Her mother proudly smiles'


down from Heaven at her.
My children and I will be
part of the rally Saturday, Sept.
16, in front of the Hardee
County Courthouse at noon to
show our outrage at this injus-
tice done to this loving man we
know. We will also be writing
letters stating our feelings and
sending them to the post office
box that Patricia Austin has set
up just for the letters from the
community. These letters will
not only help with getting jus-
tice locally but will also be
hand delivered to Gov. Bush.
If you need to contact
Patricia Austin, she can be
reached at 453-4008. There- is
also an e-mail address for this
cause. That is opjreejcmeus
2006@earthlink.net. The
address to send the letters to is
JCM, P.O.Box 2000, Avon
Park, FL 33826-2000.
Three people lost their lives
in that tragic accident on State
Road 64. Nona and Lindsey
Moore died instantly and are in
the arms of their Maker. Jean
Claude lost, his the day that he
was put behind bars for some-
thing, that was an unavoidable
and horrendous accident.
Please help in giving Jean
Claude back his life by not only
writing letters and mailing
them to the P.O. Box, but by
attending'the rally being held
Sept. 16. This is our last chance
to save this man from being a
victim of the legal system.

our region.
7. With the proposed exten-
sion of the Sebring Parkway,
what issues have arisen and
how should they be
addressed? Explain.
One important issue is the
Parkway going through and
"splitting" neighborhoods.'I do
think the Parkway should hap-
pen; it's just not a good idea'to
route it 'through and divide
neighborhoods.
8. What role should
Highlands County govern-
ment have in illegal immigra-
tion?
I feel that if our federal gov-
ernment was doing its job, we
locally would not have to


address this problem. As much
as I feel "illegal" immigration
has to be controlled, as a coun-
ty commissioner, I would not
put the county in a position of
an expensive legal battle that
would drain your county tax
dollars if we attempted to do
something.
That said, however, I feel it
would be part of my job to
lobby our congressional repre-
sentatives to get tough on for-
eigners who have entered our
country illegally.
If you are here legally, no
problem. What part of illegal
don't people understand?
9. Define your role, as a
county commissioner.
If elected, it would be my job
to watch over the purse strings
of the people who elected me
and protect the quality of our


way of life in Highlands
County.
10. How many hours per
week do you have to devote to
the county commission posi-
tion?
The last time the people
voted me in office, I devoted
myself full time. I see no reason
to change.
11. Is there any other topic
or issue that you feel the
county commission should
address, or that you plan to
tackle while in office?
Are you kidding! There' are
volumes of issues, in govern-
ment that need addressing.
That's why I have a record of
keeping my eye on all of it.
Look, we're at a crossroad and
we will pay more if v.e. don't
make the right decisions now

BATES
Continued from 15A
Having said that, I do think
that growth or potential growth
has created excessive demands
on our planning department.
The future of the county is
dependent to a large extent on,,
how well we are able to forecast
development and then on our
ability to make the' requisite
planning efforts to accommo-
date and facilitate .orderly
growth.
Our county is large in land
area but relatively small in
terms of population and the
number of municipalities. The
county could benefit from
improved communications
between the county and the
cities and towns specifically in
'areas of planning for future
growth. .
In an effort to improve in this
area I would seek to enhance
the planning capability by
adding senior staff to the plan-
ning department. , '* E
5. In terms of county gov-
ernment administration, how
will we address the changes?
Such as Carl Cool's retire-
ment?
.The mark of a good adminis-
trator, whether in government,
in research, or in business, is his
development of staff that's
capable of assuming new
responsibilities as opportunities
arise. Mr. Cool has provided'
this county with' outstanding
administrative services over the
years and, he has developed a
strong: supporting cast of'
department heads that can, step
into leadership roles with a
minimum loss of effectiveness.:
We should expect that changes
in administration staff would
occur and move to fill those
positions with the best person
available, either from within the
county system or outside
depending on the qualifications
of the applicants.
When Mr. Cool retires, I am
satisfied ihat he will give the,
county sufficient notice so that
a thorough search can be made
for his replacement.' II fully
expect that he will remain in the
position until his replacement is
named and further expect he.
will remain to assist in the tran-
sition period if requested.
6. What role,should the
county play in regional
growth?
Regional growth issues for
Highlands County fall in three
areas. The first is transportation
and the .potential .construction
of an East-West Interstate/Toll
road in the area north of Avon
Park as well as the'construction
of a North-South Interstate west
of the county line. Either or
both of these highways would
have significant impacts on
Highlands County and the
entire region. Our role would be
to provide connecting road net-
works to facilitate the changes
in traffic flows as well as devel-
opment that would be respon-
sive to the new major high-
ways.' ,
The second area in which the
county could play. a role in
regional growth is the protec-
tion and preservation of our
water resources both from a
supply and from a quality
standpoint. -Storm water runoff
and its polluting capabilities is a
side effect of regional growth.
This county should stand ready
to become a leader in the area
of protecting one of- our most
precious, resources, our lakes
and streams. ,
Thirdly, regional growth will
require that Highlands County
become much more involved
with surrounding counties. No
longer will we be afforded the
luxury of our own development
and its impacts. Large housing


developments and distribution
centers serving an entire area of
the state are just two examples
of how growth in a neighboring
county can and will impact us.
7. With the proposed exten-
sion of.the Sebring Parkway,
what issues. have arisen, and
how should they be
addressed? Explain.
The major issues are right of
way acquisition and funding for
the remaining portions, pf the
Parkway. The city of Sebring
and Highlands County have
worked quite closely on the,
development of- the Parkway
and-should continue that coop-
erative effort.
8. What role should
Highlands, County govern-
ment have in illegal immigra-,.
tion?
Illegal immigration is. a, fed-
eral issue and not a local gov-
ernment 'issue. We should,
expect all of our residents to
live and abide by our laws.
9. Define yQur role as a
county commissioner.
As a county commissioner I
will be fully prepared for each
meeting, will listen carefully to,
each issue and to each side of,
the issue, \% ill tole my convic-
tions, exercising the same level,
of integrity and honesty that has'
been a strong foundation of my
business for more than 30
years, I will expect and demand
from staff a thorough presenta-
tion of issues and will not per-
mit an issue to proceed if there
are significant points not clari-
fied
I %%ill place an emphasis on
planning and on citizen
in olhement \la discussions
--and workshops to ensure that
count) go'ernmnent remains in
touch nith its residents. I k ill
endeavor to make ,mn\self readi-
13 available to the public and
seek a w ide range of ,iew points
on issues in order to best repre-


.sent my district and the county.
I will work to maintain the
quality of life that we have
enjoyed in Highlands Count\
for many years. This will
require a high level of services
be available thro.u,:hout the
county.
I will expect the budget of
the county to be structured so
that essential ser ices are pro-
vided in the moit cost-effective,
.manner possible
I foresee the need for closer'
%working relationship: vith
neighboring counties is' the,
region continues to, grow and
place,.dded pressures on'our
abilities to supply water and.
maintain the health of our lakes
and streams.: .
10. How many hours per
week do you hae to devote to
the county commission posi-'
tion?
In the miliiar'. asa research
scientist and .s a farmer Ihave
ne'er punched a ume clock or
kept up v.ith the hours ,worked.
Throughout my entire life's-
work I ha\ e de\ noted the h6urs,
necessary\ to do the work. As a
commissioner i 1 11i spend as
many hours per x\eek as neces-
sary.
11. Is there an3 other topic
or issue that 'ou feel the
county commission' should,
address, or that ou .plan to
tackle lthile in office?
I wouldl d like to see a strong


effort to utilize the experience,
and skills of our retired and
semi-retired residents. This
county has a resource unique in
that we have many residents.
who could contribute in a num-
ber,of areas. We need'to think
outside the box sometimes and.
provide' ihe opportunity for
part-time service. There are
nurses, doctors. engineers,
recreation directors. teachers,
construction foremen, pianeiilis
and others w. ho could '.er e this
county well in. retirement.
SProtection of our-lakes is an
1 ,Iue that should be a concern
for each .of up .The 'cost of
recovering a' lke whose water
quahii has been ,degraded is
manm tmnes 'greater than, ade-
quite protection .

Tion project by building a new camp
site at the park. "'\e are helping the
State sa\e moneN. The state had to cut-
back on its employ ees, so the volun-
teers help pick up the slack and keep
the parks open," Jim said..
Jim has learned a lot of skills hlule
xiorking in the park. even ho\w to fight
a forest fire In 2004', lightning struck a
tree and started a forest fire in

DIVERSIONS


scores


big with football fans


without pouring on too much romance


Juggling sports cliches and
heart-tugging jargon on a daily
basis as a sports writer might
make me more susceptible to
the charms of an underdog foot-
ball movie. Sports films in gen-
eral have a way of bringing a
tear to my eye. "Remember the
Titans" gets me choked up,
"Field of Dreams" sets me to
mimicking James Earl Jones for
days and "Bull .Durham" may
be the most quotable movie
ever.
After a while, though, the
themes and hockey story lines
featuring down-and-out charac-
ters defying the odds and suc-
ceeding can seem a bit trite. The
truth of the matter is, as a sports
fan and film buff, I've found the
combination makes me even
more,picky. It's an easy out for.
a screenwriter to get to that
"stand up and cheer" crescendo
at the end and once you've seen,
Rocky leap into his trainer's
arms, his mangled face bellow-
ing "Adrian, 'I love you!"'
you've reached the pinnacle.
It's hard to get back there.
Maybe director Ericson Core
and writer Brad Gann knew this

project "Invincible." What bet-

When the Apostle Paul wrote
Timothy, he shared some tragic
news. He wrote, "Do thy dili-
gence to come shortly unto me:
for Demas hath forsaken me,
having loved this present world,
and is departed unto
Thessalonica..:" based on 11
Timothy,4: 9,10. What was in
Thessalonica that appealed to,
Demas to the extent that he
would be persuaded to forsake
the apostle Paul? The, world.
In Philemon 24, Paul refers
to Demas on one of his fellow
laborers. In Colossians 4:14, we
find Demas sending greetings
to the church at Colossi. These
two references and the, one in 2
Timothy are the only verses
which mention Demas.
It is a brief biography which
has a happy beginning and mid-
dle, but a sad ending. At first he
is in the trenches with the apos-
tle; next he is greeting the
Lord's people; but in the end he
forsakes all. Why?

Gang and Bachman-Turner
Overdrive set the mood to per-
fection like the ghost of the no
longer existent Veterans
Stadium and male-bonding is
nourished with beer and
pigskin.
Enter Dick Vermeil (Greg
Kinnear), former coach at
University of California at Los
Angeles and the new:, head
coach for the Eagles. In an
attempt to shake things up,
Vermeil stages open tryouts for
any and all who think they have
what it takes for the NFL.
Reluctantly succumbing to peer
pressure, Papale heads to the
stadium with nothing to lose.
Absorbing the hopes and
dreams of his run-down neigh-
borhood, Papale survives cut
after improbable cut, ultimately
making the roster.
"Invincible" is aware of the
temptation to pour on the syrup
and deftly avoids it. It is for this
reason that the journey is
rewarding and the emotions are
palpable. Wahlberg's everyman
chumminess adds believability
to the peaks and valleys. The


scenes with his blue-collar
father are rationed so that they
don't overwhelm, and the
romance with barmaid Janet
Cantrell (Elizabeth Banks) is
put off until absolutely neces-
sary. The love interest is there,
but it is not the all too familiar
driving force.
Football fans will get a kick
out of the sublimated Tom
Landry and Roger .Staubauch
footage a la "Forrest Gump"
and the projector clips of the
real Papale during the end cred-
its.
Feel free to get your hopes up
for this inspiring film, because
"Invincible" truly delivers.

Wolfe breaks

own school

record in

backstroke
By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
. AVON PARK It's not all
that surprising that Megan
Wolfe didn't know she .had
broken her own 100-yard
backstroke record when she
climbed out of the Avon Park
pool on Thursday night. Being
half submerged in choppy
waters during the heat of com-
petition can have a way of dis-
combobulating an athlete.
\Vhat's trul remarkable 'is
that it might not even be the
Sebring swimmer's best event.
"I don't really know. what
-my best stroke is." said Wolfe,
ditcu.ssing the new Sebring
record nime of 1:03.74, "li'
pretty cool."
As for her secret, she was
just as, nonchalant about that.
"I've just been ,doing a, lot of
underwater fly-kick."
Wolfe's ; performance was
only one of many things that
went right for the Blue Streaks
in their meet with Avon Park.
The girls came out on top with
a total score of 200 to the Wet
Devil's 105 and .the Sebring
boys took the night with a 160-
116 victory.'
Still, Avon "Park coach
Marsha May was pleased with
her squad's effort.'
S "e ha\e a really\ ioung
team and our-.goadltogbt% was
for e er)one' o iripro'e their
time and do. the best they
could," said Ma) "When they
touch that wall, to know that.

Thomas Quigg of Sebring takes the lead in the 100-yard freestyle on Thursday.


STREAKS
Continued from 1D
freestyle and Boyce for the
girls 200-yard freestyle.
Thomas Quigg, Perillo, Kirsch
and Jacob Decker also took
individual events.
In the diving competition,
Heather Barnes came out on
- top for the Devils' and Spiegel
won it for the Sebring boys.
"Our goal was to get all of
our swimmers involved. We
have 55 swimmers," said
-* Sebring coach Pat Caton. "For
our B and C swimmers, we just
want them to get the idea of
what swimming is all about and
- our A's, they knew what they
were here to do. As a team, the
girls. were great and the boys
are coming along, too.
"We have a lot of new swim-
mers. Only five seniors out of
55."
