Family feels racial bias during settlement


Hunrricane Wilma
left Avon Park
family in despair
By KEVIN J. SHUTT

AVON PARK Luisa
Ortas' family has worn their
welcome with friends, racked
up expensive motel bills and
slept many nights in their car.
But. it's the mold grow ing in
her ceiling, behind her %walls
and oler the fresh coats of paint
she applies that has her con-
cerned for their well-being.
"When I told them my kids
are sick. these said it's not their
problem," Ortas said, as she
ga'e a tour of her four-bed-
room. two bathroom home on
North Shamrock Road.
Ortas' home sustained roof
damage Oct 26. 2005, during
Hunrricane Wilma.
An adjuster from her insur-
ance company\ showed up No\.
27 and estimated the damage -
mostly roofing and general
demolition some stucco and
windows repairs to total
$11.592.94.
A check for $8,892.94 iher
deductible was $2,7001 alTired
Dec. 9.
Onrtas said the insurance com-
pan\'s delay in cutting the
check and the bank's delay in
cashing meant that she and her
husband Estaban Rohena
received their claim in the w\ake
of e\er increasing construction
COsIS
The necessary\ repairs were
neyet made and mold is evident
in the corners where the \walls
join the ceiling, in the bathroom
despite daily scrubbing and in a
bedroom closet rendering the
clothes useless


KATARA S[M!ONSiN,-.:.Sur
Luisa Ortas shows the piles of clothes that she's been told to discard because of a mold infestation at her
home. A Jul. estimate b. Quality Home Maintenance and Inspection said it would cost $130.000 to lix
her house. Last December. her insurance company issued a check for just less than $9.00)0 for damage
done by Hurricane Wilma. which she said is the reason for the mold.


"All the clothes are damaged,
they have mold." Ortas said,
explaining that the health
department told her 'to ihrow
them out because washing
won't eliminate the problem.
But. piles of clothes litter the
home because the insurance
company and her artornes have
told her to keep them until her
claim is settled.
"The cluin is not. resolved."'
Gan Gossett Jr. said Thursday.
Gossett, a Sebring attorney.
represented Ortas in a foreclo-


sure, where she had to boTrrow
S8.000 to pay the bank so she
could keep her home.
Gosseti w as with her
Wednesday during a mediation
heanng 'w ith the insurance com-
pany. which he said didn't
resolve her claim that the com-
.pany's response has led to the
current situation.
"The initial person w\ho came
out treated her a little bit-differ-
ent than they should have,"
Gossett said of the claim
adjuster. "The language issue


had something to do with it.'"
Ortas said she went to the
Federal Emergency
Management Agency first after
Wilma. but was referred to her
insurance company.
Beyond insurance, she didn't
know %\here to turn.
Neither FEMA nor her insur-
ance provided Ortas with a blue
tarp to mitigate subsequent rain
damage. which the insurance
company said is causing her
current plight.
"I doubt you could have

son who came

out treated her a

ent than they

should have.'
GARY GOSSETr, Sebnng attorney

bought a tarp in Highlands
Count) at that time," Gossett
said. "In m, opinion, the insur-
ance company didn't full
inform her of what she could
do."
As of Friday, there was no
tarp covering the roof, patches
of wind damage readily visible .
' Gossett is in\ estimating
\whether there's evidence of
racial bias in hova the insurance
company handled Ortas' claim.
"One of the guv s at the insur-
ance company told me, "I can't
help lou because you no speak
English." Oras said.
A Puerto Rican who speaks
English but is not confident
i`tth her command of it, Ortas
has lied in Highlands Counts
since 2t001 and bought her
house about two \ears ago.
Ortas. w ho is on disability
and who's husband is employed
as a contractor's aid. has been
combating the mold. which is
beginning to take a toll on her.
Ortas and her husband 'were

ter Jannert Torres, son Armando
Torres and grandchildren

Student Ser ices

said the event didn't draw the'
same number of colleges it'

backs and travel costs have led'
to feb 'er, shorter road hrps for

the rest, 30 some, are in

SEBRING A' couple
hands went up. after Nell Hays
asked who in the 20-person
group had been a victim of
identify theft.
"There's always one or two,"
said Hays, a crime prevention
practitioner with the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office.
Hays gave a brief seminar on
how to not be one. of those hand
raisers in the future, during a
social gathering of the Knights
of Columbus, their wives and
guests.
Defining identity theft as the
unauthorized use of somebody
elke's credit card or accounts
'(including phone and utilities)
or the opening of an account in
somebody else's name, Hays
listed the statistics of the most
likely victims those who
have $75,000 of annual income
Sor more, live in urban or subur-
ban areas and whose house-
holds are headed by 18-24 year
olds.


"Households headed by
somebody 65 or older were
least likely to be victims," she
said, the data contradicting
,what many in her audience had
a* audibly guessed. "Or, they are
m s. 41- 0 the least likely to 'return sur-
veys.
0a 1 Hays', explained that many
S 4 % elderly citizens. especially, if
-* they had been victims of ID
theft, are more cautious and are
-- reluctant to answer surveys,
-- thus skewing the data.
Would-be hijackers use a.
S number of methods to steal
-one's personal information -
'from simply stealing mail to
using high-tech gadgets to
M *b swipe and save credit card data
S- while serving as a member of a,
restaurant's wait staff.
- "You know when it's sup-
terial posed to come," Hays said of
credit card statements, which

e n t should raise flags when late.

From table to register and back to the table, restaurant goers often
lose sight of their credit cards, assuming their personal information
is in good hands with the waitstaff. But, pager-sized scanners can be
used to scan a credit card's data, which is stored until don loaded
on a computer.


"They didn't forget to send it."
Even garbage is rummaged
through as thieves try to find
ways to %pend mone_ not theirs,
ruining lives and lines of credit
in their wake.
Haysh suggested shredding
any outgoing trash that has
Social Security. numbers,
account numbers or other infor-
mation that a third party might
use, illegally.
Hays said that in 2004, an
estimated $3.2 billion was
stolen through 'ID theft, with
one in five victimss spending at
least a month to fix their result-
ant problems.
"For'most I think it takes
something like seven years,"
she said.
To minimize one's risk, Hays
said to never give
account/social security infor-
mation over the phone or via e-
'mail unless the conitct \ as ini-
tiated by you.
Internet fraud, scamins and
precautions is a whole other
seminar, Hays said, but: did
offer advice on how to. deal


with e-mails, from seemingly
legitimate companies asking
the use to verify account infor-
mation to fix so-called data-
base problems.
"It has the Web site address,"
Hays said of the scam spams.
Spreading her hands in front of
her, she continued. "But -the
Web site address is this long."
Extra long Web addresses are
an indication that the site being,
pulled up doe_ not belong to the
companN represented. no matter
ho%% official looking.
"The real fun in those is gi\-
ing them false information."
Donald Schnoor said, e\plain-
ing how he likes to combat the
-fraud'. : . :,
. Other safeguards include
:picking up ne%\ checks at the
bank or credit uruon instead of
having them mailed to a resi-
dence, gi\ ing a social security

SFCC's EPI accepting new students


AVON PARK People with bachelor's
degrees can become qualified to work as primary
and secondary teachers in Florida by attending an
approximately one-year program at South Florida
Community College's Educator Preparation
Institute.
Prospective candidates can learn more about
the EPI program at a public information session
from 5-6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 5, in the University
Center, Room 102, at the Highlands campus.
The majority of classes meet 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday in Room 209 of the University Center.
Several classes are taught online.. Each will run
about five weeks.
Because courses are not being taught in any
particular sequence, students ate not required to
take classes consecutively and can enter the pro-
gram at' the intervals when new classes become
available. The program can be completed in
about a year.
Classes will focus on professional teaching
practices in such areas as classroom manage-
ment, instructional strategies, integrating tech-
nology into the classroom and test preparation.


Twice a year, in the fall and spring, students, will
complete a 15-hour internship during which they
will observe a teacher who is compatible with the
subject matter and grade level they wish to teach.
Graduates of the EPI program will receive
teaching certificates from the Florida Department
of'Education once they pass the Florida Teacher's
Certification Exam.
To be accepted into the EPI, students must
obtain a status of eligibility letter from the
* Florida Department of Education and apply at the
SFCC Registrar's Office. Afterwards, they
receive an application from Colleen Rafatti, EPI
program coordinator.
Tuition for EPI classes is roughly equivalent to
the credit-hour classes offered in the associate
degree programs. Like college students in other
programs, EPI participants are eligible for some
types of financial aid, including Pell Grants.,
SMilitary veterans can also apply for Troops to
Teachers scholarships through the U.S.
Department of Defense.
For more information, call Rafatti at 784-7403
or send e-mail to rafattic@southflorida.edu.

Planting a cool season vegetable garden


Last month I wrote about
choosing the site for a vegetable
garden and preparing the soil
for planting. If the site prepara-
tion is complete, October is a
great time to plant.
It may be a good idea to con-
sider how you will irrigate your
garden before you plant. We do
not normally receive much rain
in the late fall and winter
months in our 'area. Micro or
drip irrigation is a good choice
if no irrigation methods are cur-
rently in place. This can be sim-
ply done by running a drip hose
or trickle tape along the top of
each row in the garden after
planting. This type of irrigation
also insures that the root zone
gets the water and the foliage
stays relatively free of water
that can contribute to fungal
diseases. They. can easily be
hooked up to your home's spig-
ot through a garden hose; I've
seen kits sold at the local home
improvement stores that will
help you.
The next step is to decide
what you want.to..plant and pre-
pare the areas of your garden
accordingly. Remember that
adequate sunlight is important
to a good vegetable crop. Till
plants may shade-shorter plants,


so consider carefully the size of
the plants when deciding where
to plant each crop. If you will
be planting vining crops, plan to
have some type of trellis for
support of vertical growth. This
will keep the fruit off of the
ground and save space in the
garden.*
Some of the popular vegeta-
bles that can be planted by seed
directly into your fall garden
are carrots, collards, kale, let-
tuce, peas, radish, spinach and
turnips. To get the best plants
and yield you should start with
good seed of varieties tested
and found adaptable to our
growing and soil conditions.
Most commercially available
seed has been treated with a
fungicide to protect the
seedlings from soil borne fun-
gal diseases. You should follow
the directions on the package
for seed planting' depth and
spacing. The seedbed should be
kept moist until plants emerge
and have several sets of leaves.
They should also be thinned for
the proper distance .between
plants. This step is very impor-
tant. Seedlings that are not
thinned will never reach their
maximum crop potential and
you will. often have plants that


Constitution Day


are stunted in -.
growth.
If you don't want
to- worry about thin-
ning seedlings, trans-
plants may be the
way to go. There are
several advantages to
this approach. The
plants have a head
start and usually lead NEWS
to ,an earlier harvest. T
However, you may
be limited in the type WATE
of plants you can get
because some plants Jennifi
do not do well as -
transplants. Some
vegetables for October planting
that do well as transplants are
collards, kale and lettuce, broc-
coli, cabbage, cauliflower,
Brussels sprouts and onions.
When putting the transplants
into the garden, take care not to
disturb the roots. Dig a hole and
mix in a small amount of com-
plete fertilizer such as 6-6-6
into the surrounding soil. Place
the transplant into the hole and
water well as soil is returned to
hole around the roots.
Now that the garden is' plafit-
'ed, there are routine chores that
need to bedone to assure a good
crop of tasty vegetables. Weeds

This is a community event;


must be kept to a
minimum, water and
~- fertilizer need to be
applied at regular
intervals to assure
adequate nutrients for
optimum growth and
we must be ever vigi-
lant for pests and dis-
ease.
FROM The best way to
HE reduce the amount of
time spent on the
RSHED knees pulling weeds,
or hoeing to cultivate,
rAbbey is to mulch after
- planting. Using herbi-
cides is usually not an
option for the home vegetable
garden. Straw, pine straw,
leaves, newspaper, and black
plastic are some- common
mulches. Mulch has the added
benefit of helping retain mois-
ture in-the soil. If black plastic
is used as mulch, it should be
put down before planting. Rows
should be prepared and fertil-


ized then plastic covered over
the row and edges covered with
soil to hold them down. Drip or.
trickle irrigation lines should be
installed under the plastic
mulch. Seed or transplants are
planted through slits in the plas-
tic.
After seeds and transplants
are established, your garden
will need about one inch of
water every seven to 10 days. If
rain does riot supply this
amount! supplemental irrigation
water needs to be applied.
You should "scout" or look at
your garden plants carefully
twice a week for any signs of
insects or disease. It is much
easier to control problems if
they are found .early.
Insecticidal soaps and oils .are
effective against many insect
and mite pests. There are also
botanical products such asg
neem, pyrethrin, rotenone and
sabadilla that are relatively safe
to use. Bacillus thurngiensis or


Bt is a bacterial insecticide for
caterpillars- It is harmless to
humans and most beneficial. It
is harmful to butterfly ,larvae,
however. Beneficial insects
usually will come along to prey-
on the problem insects if given
,time. Another option ,is- just
hand picking the insects from
the-plants. This is very helpful
if oilly small numbers of pests
are present.
For more reading, a very
good reference is "Vegetable
Gardening in Florida" by James
M. Stephens. It can be pur-
chased at most bookstores.

While observing the second national Constitution Day, South
Florida Community College student Andrew Smith adds his sig-
nature to a replica of the U.S. Constitution as education profes-
sor Michele DeVane watches. A federal mandate requires pub-
licly funded schools to hold Constitution Day programs on Sept.
19 to mark the date that the Constitutional Convention ratified
the Constitution in 1787 in Philadelphia. At the Highlands cam-
pus, a program was coordinated by SFCC's Department of
Social and Behavioral Sciences. Students from the American
Government Honors class taught by political science professor
Pam Hansen gave presentations on aspects of the Bill of Rights,
and two teams of students squared off in a 'Jeopardy' game that
tested their knowledge of obscure facts about the Constitution.

kind brought on by the ticking
clock and coming application
deadlines. For many students,
one of the most important deci-
sions of their lives is about to
be made. They could be seen
leaning in close to the college
representatives, listening care-
fully, clutching catalogs, some
even taking notes.
Leilani Santana and Tim
Wheaton, both seniors at
Sebring High School, have nar-
rowed their college choices, but
aren't quite ready to commit
just yet. Having researched the
University of Florida and the
University of Central Florida,
they were carefully checking
out Nova Southeastern
University.
Private school students came
to the event as well. Chelsea
Clark and Leah Petsuch, sen-
iors at Heartland Christian
School, are still waiting to
make a final decision about
where to go to college. But
Petsuch knows she wants to
become a teacher, while Clark
is preparing for a career in
communications and broadcast
journalism.
Clark andPetsuch were in
the minority in the sense that
most other students were as
unclear about what they wanted
to'study, as about where they
wanted'to study.

Lynn Topel, executive director
of Florida's Heartland Rural

Initiative. said. "I definitely do
not want to. see this fail."
Suzanine Lamb, the great-
granddaughter of the original
owners of the estate, was pres-
ent and'spoke up several times
about the property during the
meeting.
"If I had the money, believe
me, you all would get it," Lamb
said..
SFWMD has 'talked about..
- granting easements. for docks
and boat ramps on the
Kissimmee River adjacent to
the property, which would pro-
vide another access point for
river-bound tourists.
Jim Brantley, director of
tourism in Highlands County,
talked about how the Pearce-
Lockett Estate, coupled with,
possible shopping and lodging
facilities that could be built in
the area, could become a major
tourist destination. He also
mentioned the' possible oppor-
tunities for bird-watching at
and near the estate.

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun,
The school district's annual College Night Thursday brought out
dozens of teens and their families. A combination of school and mili-
tary organizations filled 40 booths at the Highlands County Agri-
Civic Center, Sebring.


tourism could be developed at
the site.
"Large hotel chains know
what's going on," Brantley
said, "and they're willing to
invest lots of money."
Louisa Kerwin, of Florida
Atlantic University's Center for
En% ironmental Studies, had putt
together a detailed site assess-
ment plan for the commission's
September meeting. At
Thursday's % workshop. she
talked about how the Pearce-
Lockett Estate could be an
important
tourism, educational opportuni-
ties such as field trips, and
workshops for.adults. ..
Kerwin also said Adventure
Tours of Florida had expressed
interest in being a concession-
aire for eco-tours on the
Kissimmee River. She said it
was possible for the estate to be
used as a major destination by
the tour company.
Kim Love. who negotiated
the unsuccessful 1905 attempt
to buy back the land. presented
a project management proposal
to the commission and the audi-
ence. The proposal used some
of Ker\\ n's ideas, and also pre-
sented a budget and timeline.
Love said the countN should
take advantage of the fact that
more than 9 million Florida res-
idents live within 100 miles of


the area.
"You now have the opportu-
nity to get (the estate) with
$500, 1t) handed, to you," Loye
said. "If the county doesn't
move forward, you're missing a-
chance for world-class opportu-
nities."
SFWMD did not, specify that
the $500,000 'seed money had
to be used in a specific way.
The only limit on the deed of.
the estate is that it has to be
open to the public. The estate is
currently open from 8 a.m. to
noon Monday through Friday,
and there is a caretaker who
lives on the premises.
The commission' ultimate'
goal is to come up with a con-r
sensu% plan that, would be
* viable enough to present to the
, county commission at its
December meeting. Audience
'members discussed organizing
-a petition drive, 'as well as
establishing a "Friends of the,
Pearce Homestead" non-profit
to receive donations.
The Historic `Preservation,
Commission's next: regular
meeting will be Thursday, Oct.
12, and it is open to the public.
The Historic Preservation
Commission- has scheduled
another public %workshop for
Oct. 26 to discuss public ideas
for the Pearce-Lockett Estate.

Leadership teachers



Be prepared for heated discussions


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

SEBRING The School Board of Highlands
County has invested a great deal of money. effort and
time into a program it calls Freshman Foundations.
Designed to help ninth graders make a smooth
adjustment to high school. it focuses on preparing ado-
lescents for an adulthood based on lifelong learning.
All three high schools hae %ersions of the same pro-
gram. but the classroom syllabus, a curriculum de\el-
oped by the Flippen Group. an educational think tank
which developed the Capture Children's Hearts pro-
gram, is identical school to school.
All teen leadership teachers were sent to a special
training session and permanent positions in support of
the program were added to each high school's faculty.
Freshman Foundations is designed to promote a bet-
ter bond between teacher and student, promoting an
atmosphere of trust and personal possibility.
Studies have shown. local administrators say. that
there is a correlation between a school's trust level and
its student', academic achie' ement
Current thinking in educational circles is that stu-
dents learn best in an en' ironment of positive relation-
s.hips. relevance and rigor, but the relationship between
student and teacher is the basis for e'er, thing else.
Students who tiust their teachers. in other words. are
more likely\ to believe in the relevance of their v.ork.
and are more killing g to take on more difficult work
The Flippen Group has prepared a detailed curricu-
lum for its Teen Leadership course. w which takes nine
weeks.
Lessons built around role playing. ivriting and public
speaking i public speaking provides the bulk of graded
material help teen; develop the habit of thinking
things through and accounting for possible conse-
quences. Conflict resolution plays an important part in
the program. as does goal setting and establishing pro-
ductive stud\ habits.
Positive affirmations are exchanged between stu-
dents, and students and teachers regularly, and students
and teachers custom create social contracts for each
class.
Self control and discipline are conscious goals.
Teachers use a four question system to help students
learn how to focus. Each questions requires a precise
an s er.
Question: \Vh't are you doing?
Student answer: Talking.
- -Question :What -are-you supposed -to-be doing?--
Student answer: Paying attention.
Question: Are you doing it?
Student answer: No.
Question: What are you going to do about it?

Plis.. t.-, CHRISTOPHER TU.FFLE1 N, ,.Sur
Lake Placid High School assistant baseball coach Kevin Tunning has been eager to teach teen leadership ror .years.
eier since he attended a workshopp on the subject. He had come back to school and put his name on a waiting list that
onl) began %ilh him. The reality has measured up to the dream he said. Euen the most jaded of his 14-.ear-olds are
coming around to the approach.


Student answer: I'll pay attention.
While some teachers worry that the course content
might be too simple and lacking in rigor, those teachers
who guide teen leadership classes, say the students are
becoming engaged and more interested in the conun-
drums the course brings to light.
"\'e help the kids learn how to make principal based
decisions, and not act out on their feelings." Kevin
Tunning said. He teaches English and tw.o sections of
the leadership course at Lake Placid High School.
"We're trying to train a generation of leadership. The
top students thought it wasn't necessary at first. but
they've begun to change their minds
"'One of mni students surprised himself. He %\as so
opposed to speaking in public, he was prepared to take
a zero the first time he had to get up to speak. But then,
at the last minute, he changed his mind and spoke out."
Indi iduals w\ho are thinking about teaching as a
career need to decide for themselves what kind of a
teacher they will: be.- Different-tevels-of education -use
different style.. Individuals who are thinking about
working with adolescents should be comfortable \ith
some messiness and noise and be prepared to do more
listening than speaking.

a switch, or discover if what looked good
on paper does or doesn't work in real life.
Not that reworked ideas are bad each
rises or falls on its own merits the point
is, there is nothing new under the sun
when it comes to education.
I had a professor who was adamant on
the point. All people, as physical entities,
learn in the same way, whether they live in
a city or the country, are alive today or
were born 100 years ago. The way we take
in and process information has not
changed. Students will always have to
practice skills and memorize facts. And
they will always need to play.
What has a tendency to fool us into
thinking we are coming up, with "new"
ideas is a separate dynamic, a pendu-
lum swing from student centered class-
rooms, to teacher centered classrooms.
That swing occurs over time. Each genera-
tion experiences the redistribution as new
because it is new to them.
In fact, historically the pendulum has
swung back and forth with regularity.
For example, going back about a centu-
ry, one room schools were student cen-
tered places. They had to be because the
students presented such a wide variety of
ages, talents, and needs. Students would
work, by themselves or with others, at
tasks that resulted in measurable accom-
plishments. a report for instance, or teach-
ing a mastered skill to a younger student.
Then during the large wave of migration,
from Europe to America just after the turn,
of the 19th century, the east coast industri-
al states had to quickly absorb huge num-
bers of new residents. Preparing them for
the workforce was seen as a matter of
national security. Local governments,
therefore began to grow their public
school programs, which, partly because of
the numbers inolhed. shifted to a teacher
centered, lecture driven form of educating.
It's a form of teaching familiar to many
of us. One that served man well.
Now howeever..change is afoot. as yet
again the focus of classroom attention
shifts from the teacher at the front of the
cliss, to the students in their seats.
The coming generation %will have to
make many hard decisions, the argument
goes. Tomorrow's adults w ill be making
difficult choices, and need to be prepared.
Most of all, the next generation will have
to be able to identify problems and know.
ho\w to find solutions. The\ w ill need self-
confidence to remain optimistic, and will
have to be able to work together \ ith a
%\ ide \ariet\ of people.
The coming up generation will have to
learn more, sooner, and faster than any'

and research make this a student centered
operation.
The challenge for the longtime teacher
- especially for the successful longtime
teacher. w ho is used to firm control and
uses it well is to get out of the wa\ of
the learning, which comes from the stu-
dent's actions, not the teacher's.
Teen leadership teachers, in other
words, ha\e to become facilitators.
It is to the credit of the men and
women, naturally comfortable after
decades of standing at the front of the
room, who willingly work to empower stu-
dents at the expense of their own spotlight.
But that adds emotion and the subject of
free choice to the mix -making physics
look simpler yet.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS



A not so nice dog tale


Unlike last week's column,
the story we're about to discuss
is not amusing on any level. I
am writing about it to make
people aware of the things that
can happen when people don't
.look after their animals and to
sort out my own feelings about
the matter.
The story concerns Jake, a
19-year-old German shep-
herd/black lab mix. Jake came
to the attention of Tammy
Grimes, founder of Dogs
Deserve Better, an organization
that opposes the chaining of
dogs outside 24 hours a day,
seven days a week.
Kim Eicher, a neighbor of
Jake's owners Steve and Lori
Arnold, noticed that the dog
wasn't moving over the week-
end. She tried to contact the
Central Pennsylvania Humane
Society, to no avail. She then
called Tammy Grimes and
asked her for help..
After getting another call
about Jake and :earning that
Ms. Eicher still hadn't been
able to get a response from the
HumaneSociety, Grimes decid-


Impact fee
conclusion
Editor:
The business community
won and the homeowners lost;
One might say the county com-
mission caved in to pressure
rather than provide some pro-
tection' to homeowners and
ordinary taxpayers. '
The county commission
knows that costs will rise and,
any construction will fall far
short of actual needs. That $40
billion backlog for infrastruc-
ture noted before will become
even bigger, which means that
many citizens will continue to
\ SWhatL- is&- ironic is that the'
businessconimmunit%, in this'
state has fared quite well fol-
lowing the hurricanes of 2004
and 2005. The cost of hurricane
repairs ..has sky, rocketed; the
'Florida treasury swelled from
the tax proceeds, etc. You name
it from A to Z and the cost
increased from 10 percent to
100 percent, even 200 percent.
Victims of hurricanes became
victims of the "reco\ erN," their
voice unheeded. After all, to
paraphrase' P.T. Barnum,
"Never give the ordinary tax-
payer, the, masses an even
break." Like the county attor-
ney said, "the general fund will
make up the difference" (75
percent)
How would one grasp this
statement, "Local government
is a microcosm of federal gov-
ernment." It appears local gov-
ernment has allowed impover-
ishment of the middle class just
as nationally, our government
allowed corporations to out-
source jobs to other nations and
subsidized it with laid off
workers' taxes.
Our federal government not
only ignored the plight of
workers, it passed legislation
that absolved corporations of
their obligation io provide pen-
sions and other benefits. And
our government passed legisla-
tion- that enriched the pharma-
ceutical industry and further
impoverished our seniors. Now
both Medicare and Medicaid
are prohibited from negotiating,
with drug companies to reduce
the cost of medication.,
Our own state of Florida has
helped to bail out the insurance
companies, while sticking it to
homeowners. Insurance: poli-
cies: have significantly
increased, even doubled or
more in 'cost. Somehow, the
homeowner is left with the
huge bill, while the insurance
companies report record prof-
its.
Was it a blessing to have
insurance policies canceled?


ed to take a,look
for herself..
She went to East
Freedom, Pa.,
where Jake was


LAURA'S
Laura


located. Once
there, she took pictures and
video.
I have seen the video. It
shows Jake -to be weak, unable
to stand. In fact, when Grimes
first came on the scene, she
thought the dog was dead.
The Arnolds were not home.
Grimes decided she could not
leave Jake, whom she renamed
Doogie, laying on the ground in
the shape he was in., She
unchained him and took him to
a vet. '
According to Grimes, she
encountered Humane Society
officer who was going to the*
Arnold's house. She allegedly
offered to take Doogie back, to
the house and let the officer
pick him up. She says the offi-
cer refused, telling Grimes to
get Doogie taken care of and
call him back later. All this is
unconfirmed she.'was unable
to contact the officer she names.


LOOK The vet has said
there were signs of
neglect. Doogie
was underweight,
with missing fur
and sores. He also
found back spurs that, were
causing Doogie pain.
Doogie was. treated and
released. Grimes took him
home and bathed, fed and
watered. Not long after, she got
a call from a police officer who
asked her to return Doogie to
his owners. She refused.
By the time police came to
her home, Grimes had removed
Doogie to an undisclosed loca-
tion. She was. arrested and
charged with theft, receiving
stolen property, criminal tres-
pass, and criminal mischief (the
last two charges were recently
dropped).
The Arnolds have denied any
abuse or neglect, They said that
Doogie had arthritis. They also
admitted that the. had planned
to euthanize the dog, but that it
was a hard thing to do.
The. way things stand now,
Doogie is still in an undisclosed


location, and Grimes will stand
trial in late November.
As I researched this column,
I tried hard to be fair. I wanted
to present both sides of the
story fairly. In some ways, it
was hard. You can't look at the
video of Doogiel and not think
he 'was lacking in some sort of
care.
On the other hand, Grimes
clearly broke the law in taking
the dog without talking to the
owners. She may have felt the
dog's life was on the line, but
she must have known there
could be legal ramifications.
In the end, though, one thing
is clear. When you take a pet
into your home,, you have
entered into an unwritten con-
tract. For some reason, Doogie
fell through the cracks of that
contract. I hope in the end the
rest of his days are better than
that awful weekend.

dent. She can be contacted by

The correct way
to wear flag,

Editor:
We are often asked what is
the correct'way to wear a repli-
ca of the American flag as an
arm patch on a uniform?
When the flag is displayed
flat against a surface, it is cus-
tomary to position the flag with
the blue union (also known, as
blue field) at the observer's
left. This would apply also to
the wearing o'f the flag emblem
on the left sleeve of a uniform:
However, when worn on the
right sleeve, it is considered
proper to reverse the design so
that the blue union (aka blue
field) is to the observer's right.


The reason for the reversed,
design is to suggest that the
flag is flying in the wind, as the
carrier is marching. The
American flag never, flies in
retreat.
The decision as to the sleeve
on which the. flag emblem
would be worn is left to the
judgment of the individual or,
group concerned. However, if
another patch is worn on the
same sleeve, it should be worn
below the flag emblem.
We always told the elemen-
tary children just remember the
stars point toward your heart,
just as when you pledge alle-
giance to the flag your right
hand crosses the heart.

Power plants
and facilities
Editor:
Last month Louisiana
Energy Services broke ground
on a $,1.5 billion uranium
enrichment facility in Eunice,
N.M. This will be the second
nuclear enrichment facility in
the United States of America.
The first is operated by USEC
Inc. in Paducah, Ky. (Yahoo
finance Reuters).
There are 442 nuclear power
plants in current operation
worldwide in 33 countries and
enriched uranium is needed to
generate electricity in .these
plants. The United. States has
103 plants in operation and 20
more in the permitting process.
China has 10 existing nuclear
plants and plans to build 30
more. There are 30 nuclear
plants in Korea and even India
has 16. Japan has 55 nuclear


'The power of the press in public life is as great as

ever. This is due not to the arrogance of journalists

but to the weakness of politicians and Parliament.'
SIMON JENKINS, columnist, The Times, London, 2004


Plants because it is the'least
costly of all fuels used in the
generation of electricity .with
the added bonus of being the
least damaging to the environ-
ment. (Google nuclear power
plants orld\ide i. It would
appear that Iran, .is the only
countrN of its size that doesn't
have a nuclear power plant.
Unfortunately, enriched urani-
um is also used to. produce
atomic bombs.
Apparently it is not neces-
,sary for a country to have the
ability to enrich uranium in
order for the country to gener-
ate electricity from a nuclear
Power plant and, much of the,
enriched uranium used in
power plants is not enriched in
the U.S.A. most.of it comes
from Russia. Even the new
plant in Paducah, Ky., will only
produce about 25 percent of the
enriched uranium' used in the
existing .103 nuclear power
plants in the U.S.A.
And there's the rub, Iran
wants a nuclear power plant,
too, just like every other coun-
try in the 'world ... Knowing
this, it seems an exercise in
futility to think that we can,
"diplomatically," convince Iran
they can't have-electricity gen-
erated from nuclear power
plants just like the rest of the
world. They say: "If we and
others can have a nuclear
power plant why can't
they." It is hard to argue that
point.
But there's the real rub ...
Iran not only wants a nuclear
power plant, they also want to
enrich their own uranium
instead of buying it from some-
one else. Just like we want to
do with our second uranium
enrichment plant under con-
struction in New Mexico.
,It would seerfto me that the
only, "diplomacy" that makes
sense is the unabashed
announcement that we will use
our sophisticated weaponry to
destroy any. site, anywhere in
the world, that we feel is a
threat to our nation and that the
decision to do so will be made
by the Congress of the United
States of America and not by
the United Nations of other
countries. The alternative is to
let our enemy strike first.

an excellent job of pulling it all
together. An "up and coming"
new quartet had its debut dur-
ing the evening along \\ nh sev-
eral groups that sang with the
guests. ,
The Harmonizers continued
its community involvement this
summer by substituting for se' -
eral vacationingg church choirs

veais. the chorus has become a
.ear-rou'nd chorus holding,
rehearsals throughout the year.

Composting in backyards made simple


Just between you, me, and
the garden post ..I have a hard
time -paying for soil. I was
raised in the country where soil
was free. You just dug it up. So
why can't we take our own
organic waste and compost it? I
know several people who do
just that and their compost is
better then what you get in the
garden centers. The benefits of
creating your own composted
material with little effort are
many. You reduce the landfill
waste and cost to you in taxes,
you produce a rich soil that will
add nutrients and humus to the
soil and you will have a ready
made supply of potting soil or
mulch.
Composting is an age old
process of turning organic
material you normally throw
away leaves, grass clippings,
twigs, branches, and kitchen
scraps into a rich organic mate-
rial. There are millions of
microbes breaking down wastes


into forms that can best
be used by plants. All
you need for your com-
post pile is and area
that is level, accessible,
near water, and out of
direct sun.
To achieve' rapid
composting (three to
four months) keep in
mind adequate mois-
ture, aeration, tem-
perature, particle
size, and the carbon
to nitrogen ratio.
Sounding complicat-
ed? It's not. Let me


THE G

Po

Dian
Dilger-Ji


explain. The ideal size for a
composting pile or bin is an
area 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet
and when building your com-
post, use alternate layers of
green (nitrogen) materials and
brown (carbon) materials. Keep
your organic material moist, but
not soggy. A handful of' the
compost will feel wet but water
can not be squeezed out of it. To


aerate, turn over your
pile once a week to
allow enough oxygen
to circulate. This will
aid in the decomposi-
tion process. To reach
desirable temperatures
in a compost pile, the
pile must be large
ARDEN enough to provide an
insulating effect for

ST the interior of the
pile. Composting is
nne designed to function
acobson in the range of 95
- degrees to 160
degrees F and the
most effective range is. 122
.degrees to 131 degrees F.
Anything higher then this will
start to 'kill off the microbes.
The reduction of particle size of
raw material will increase the
speed of the composting
process by increasing the sur-
face area available for microbes
to attack. The microorganisms
that break down your raw mate-


rial are affected by the car-
bon/nitrogen (brown/green)
ratio. The optimum
carbon/nitrogen ratio for rapid
composting is about 31/1 or
less.
Once you get started making
your own compost pile, you
will see how simple it really is
and you will be asking yourself
why you didn't do this a long
time ago. The end results will
be a dark, rich texture of organ-
ic material your neighbor would
be envious of and believe me,
you won't be able to keep your
fingers out of it:

Is it time for a change in your
yard? Do you want to plant
some plants that are more
"Florida Friendly?" It is wise to
keep some of the plants you
already have. Whether dealing
with a new home or an estab-
lished yard, retaining some of
those old trees, shrubs, and
perennials will save you money
and also preserve wildlife habi-
tat.
The question is, what should
you keep? The first thing is,
keep healthy plants
that sho%% good form .
and are growing in
appropriate locations.
Prune o\ergro\wn
shrubs and trees as .
pruning is less costI ,
than replacement.
Retain those trees
%with long life spans
such as lr'e oak- -

(Ta\odium .dis-

ing out short lifespan trees such
as laurel oak, water oak, silver
maple, and cherry laurel. Try to
save clusters of trees and shrubs
and-, ground, cover grow ing
beneath them as they are good'
wind buffers.
Remove unhealthy and inva-
sive plants and it is a good idea
to get rid of plants that take too
much care. Take out foundation
plants that are too close to walls
as they block air currents and
prevent access for home main-
tenance. Also, thin out or
remove tightly spaced plants as
they are more prone to disease
and stress. Remove plants
under eaves as. they may not
receive' adequate rainfall and
nma. be damaged by rainfall-
dripping from the roof edge.,
: If \ou have a new home site,
consider remor ing an\ trees or
shrubs that have excess soil


from construction. deposited
over their root zone as they will
e entuall\ die; the same for
plants whose root zones have
been disturbed by heavy equip-
ment. If you wish to protect,
trees in- a construction zone
erect barricades around the area
at least out to the drip zone..
Even though this does not pro-
tect the entire root system, it
will improve your tree's odds of
survival.
Once you have sorted out'

Vision, mission revolutionize care


By JAN MEROP
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Kenilworth
Care & Rehabilitation Center is
not just a nursing home.
"It's an extension of the resi-
dents, lives a life in which
they have quality, do the things
they used. to do and have a say
in how their day unfolds,"
Cathy Schrader, director of
nurses, said.
Home Quality Management
has a vision to change the
industry's reputation. Its objec-
tive is to prioritize resident care
in every department and opera-
tion and fulfill residents, needs
"well beyond the norm."_
It envisions restoring pride to
the industry with excellent care,
and support services to radical-
ly chang "the landscape of
long-term care forever."
Its mission encompasses the
dignity of each elderly resident,
and gives them the' attention
and commitment of dedicated,
compassionate care providers.
"We don't have any agency
nursing staff at Keniluorth
Care," Schrader said with pride.
Kenilworth/Care has its own
nursing staff that has caught the
vision, to revolutionize long-
term care. This means staff is
overcoming obstacles w'ith cre-

activity and making decisions
with their hearts as well as their
minds.
HQM has another revolu-
tionary principle. It believes
that its vision and mission has
"divine purpose." It's the idea
that what they do is larger than
any one person or program. It's
foundationally "servant leader-
ship." As servant leaders their
responsibilities are performed
with humility toward the people
and purpose they.serve.
This concept has propelled
Kenilworth Care &
Rehabilitation Center to create
stimulating programs and activ-,
ities in which its residents have
a say. There is a Resident
.Council that meets every month
and has input into the activities.
"We ask 'them what they have
done in the past that they
enjoyed and what they would
like to do," Administrator Jim
Spadola said.
They want to get them away,
from TV, bingo, and cards as
their only 'outlets.
Consequently, they take road
trips, go out to the airport, go
shopping, enjoy entertainment
on Friday and other activities
that stimulate the mind and
encourage residents to continue
living. When at all possible.-

and aid in controlling pain -
they help prepare them to be
able to go home.
"Each day our residents get
up, get dressed, beds are made
up and they move into their
day," Schrader said. "Within
the regulatory. guidelines
Kenilworth Care must abide by,
residents are 'given reasonable
choices so that they dictate their
lives to us."
. Spadola noted that when res-
idents feel a measure of control
- like planning their day as
they did at home they are
much happier and cooperative.
With this foundational phi-
losophy, it's easy to see how the
Hall of Fame Cafe came into
being. It began in the summer
of 2003 when a team of HQM.
staff menbers met. They dis-
cussed lifetime achievements
and how residents living in
skilled nursing and assisted liv-
ing facilities could be recog-
nized.
They wanted to honor those
"hometown heroes" whose
:ccomrplishmenis \%ere the cor-
nerstone of this country's
growth and development.
Kenilkorth Care is proud to
sing their praises. '

A relaxing visit in


bluegrass country


I spent the latter
half of August and
the first couple of
weeks of September
visiting my brother-
in-la%. Johriie. in
Kentucky: Johnnie
has a farm in the
eastern portion of the
state. The Big Sandy
River flows along
the farm's south and
eastern boundary.
The CSX Railroad
defines the north-
western boundary.


Thankfully, this morning
there is no intruding horn blast
from a diesel engine or'click-
clacking of the wheels of coal
cars on the railroad as I am sit-
ting on Johnnie's back porch,
sipping a cup of hot, ,black cof-
fee, watching the morning fog
lifting from the valley as the
sun rises over the green moun-
tain tops of this beautiful blue-
grass country. It is truly awe
inspiring and it leaves me
thinking, "This is about as
close to heaven as I will ever
be."
Jerry a very pampered, 8-
year-old, yellow-spotted house
cat who is curled up. in the
porch swing beside me -
seems oblivious to everything.
Jerry lives the good life as he
rules the back porch and does
little other than eat and sleep.
. The almost inaudible rip-
pling sounds of the river, only
Sfel% hundred feet away, add a


soothing touch to the
quiet of the morning.
That quiet is broken
as Johnnie's ife.
Maggie opens the .
screen' door' \\ ith dte
announcement iiha- .
breakfast is on the
table. Jerrm jumps
out of the s\1ing to
find his food bowl
also has been
refilled
There are only
tlom of us for break-


fast: Johnnie. NMaggie, mN
wife, Pauline,; and me. But
after one look at the table, I
thought a group from church
must be coming. Maggie had
baked a heaping platter of bis-
cuits along with a huge bowl
of sausage gravy. She had fried
a dozen eggs along with
sausage and bacon.
She had also made a stack of
pancakes to be-inundated with
pure maple syrup. Maggie also
had homemade apple butter.
and raspberry jam to smear on
those hot biscuits. And to top it
all off, there was a large bowl
of fried apples from the tree in
the back yard. Maggie cooks
like this for every meal. I know
where I want to spend a por-
tion of my vacation time next
year.
I had expected to go bass
fishing with Johnnie, but he
said the fishing hadn't been
very good and it wasn't worth
the price of a non-resident

EDDIE
Continued from 1D
address system. As confident
as any ball park barker I'd ever
p I heard, the voice prompted the
crowd to cheer for the defense.
The fans followed: the voice's
lead, whooping and blasting an
air horn.
Articulate and contagiously
^ enthusiastic, the voice called
the action on the field with
precision and professionalism
adding to the drama as the
micro-Devils scored a pair of
first-quarter touchdowns.
"The Voice of Youth
Football" belongs to 13-year-.
old Eddie Cuencas, a plucky
kid who takes his gig very
seriously.
"It's my life. I love it," said
Cuencas, perched on his stool
in the press box while keeping
a watchful eye on the field.
Eddie has taken-what started
as a hobby and turned it into
an opportunity for a head-start
into a career.
After hurricane Charley
ripped through Florida in the
tinumer of 2004 taking
ders" Memorial Stadium's sound ,
system with it, Eddie volun-
teered for the vociferous voca-
tion, sitting in the stands with a
boom box and a microphone.
Emulating his idol, ESPN's
Chris Berman, and adding his
own ie\ er banter' to the mix,
Cuencas soon had everyone in
the stands chuckling through
the football game, win or lose.
e"I figured that the fans need-
ed a broadcaster and they start-
ed giving me rosters," said
Cuencas.
"After last season they start-
,ed hooking up the system.
Broadcasting is a serious job.
It's tough. I'm not in here with
the radio on and the windows
open" (/ .
The grown-up approach
plays a big part in the novelty
of Eddie's act, but with his
shock of curly black hair and-
fun-loving attitude, it's.person-
ality that has made a name for
-l'. this star-to-be.
Hoping to take his game to'
the next.level, Eddie attended a
broadcasting camp thi NuLm-

license at the time. He has a
beautiful big, red bass boat and
we did get out on the lake
while there.
Johnnie doesn't fish the -
river because there are very
few bass and he doesn't care
for the catfish that dominate
the river. For years, the river.
has caused flooding problems
for Johnnie and Maggie. Last
spring, heavy rains brought the
river nearly up to the porch. A
few feet more and the river
would have flooded the house.'
They said it was kind of touch
and go for a while.
The rains finally let up in
the mountains above them and
the river began to recede, but
not before the waters seeped
through the surrounding
grounds and' poured into the


basement. Having a large
extended family, they had fur-,
nished it as an extra bedroom.
Water ruined the carpet and
furniture but they now have it
repaired and refurnished.-
Johnnie now says a base-
ment is not an asset when
building near the river. Johnnie
is 86 years old and has defied
this river for a lifetime. He
knows the river will rise again
and he will fight again to save
this place where he has invest-
ed his whole life.
Johnnie doesn't kid himself,
he knows he can't defeat
nature but he is sure to keep on
trying.

University.
"I met with the coach who
coached Kobe Bryant who is
my favorite player," Eddie
said. "I interviewed the head
coach for the FAU basketball
team, also video taping and
recording my own stuff." ',
Eddie is one of many play-
ing a key role in what has been
a renaissance of sorts for the
aging football facility. Richard
Dick, the president of the Avon
Park Youth Football League,
has overseen several projects
that have revived Memorial
Stadium.
Community efforts have
restored the historical club-
house which has been gutted
and revamped. A handsome
picnic pavilion and benches
have been added next to the
concession stand which is
coordinated by Cindy Bennett.
The broadcast booth has
also been renovated providing,
a comfortable, air-conditioned.
view of the action for the ener-
getic youngster.
"Eddie brings something
special to the experience here,'
said Jeff Williams, first vice
president and equipment man-
ager of the league.
For the enterprising Eddie
Cuencas, it obviously wouldn't
matter if he had a booth or not.
,"I wa bom with this gift.
God gave me this gift. I'll
broadcast until the day I die,"
said Cuencas.
Keep an eye on this kid.
He could ... go ... all ... the
