Investigation

of death may

take weeks

SEBRING Detective
Kevin Shireman with the
State Fire Marshal's Office
'said Thursday that the inves-
tigation of a Sebring man's
death may take several
weeks'
Conrad Payne, 56, died at

Center on Monday after
being pulled from his
Golfview Drive house dur-
ing a fire there.
Shireman said the fire in
the living room was relative-
ly small, and estimated dam-,
ages at $40,000.
His office is waiting to
release the cause of fire until
the medical examiner's
office returns its cause of
death report, which may take
a few weeks.
Shireman couldn't com-
ment ont whether Payne's
death was fire related.

SEBRING Despite
increasing the 2006-2007 budg-
et about 28 percent more than
last year's, the county commis-
sioners are seeing red in, the
Capital Improvement Plan.
The plan is a projection of
- infrastructure needs, wants and
costs balanced against antici-
pated revenue spread out in a
10-year cycle.
"Some quality of life
improvements that need to be
done in transportation and pub-
lic safety aren't going to be
done as quickly as I think they
should be," Bullard said

Fine Arts

Festival

deadlines

approaching
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Festival
Chairman Martile Blackman
has just announced that time is
running short for artists, and
sponsors for the 40th
Anniversary Highlands,. Art
League's Fine Arts and Crafts
Festival.
The deadline for artists is this
week, and vendor and entertain-
ment spots are also rapidly
being filled. The event is sched-
uled for Saturday, Nov. 11, in
Historic Downtown Sebring.
The Arts and Crafts Festival
will take place from 9 a.m. to 4
p.m., with community activi-
ties, a Salute to Veterans and the
finale of Heartland Idol in the
evening.
The spoke streets in the
Historic District have been
renamed for the "12 Hours of
Art and Community," and there
are separate chairmen for each
newly named street.
Community Street is being
headed by Suzette Rhoades and
Cool to address,

Venus mosquito

problems
News-Sun
VENUS Having counted
the county's mosquito popula-
tion, Highlands County admin-
istrator Carl Cool will meet
with Archbold Biological
Station officials to discuss what.
action to take in Venus.
Holiday Acres and Toni
Circle remain underwater,
county spokeswoman Corine
Burgess said Wednesday.
Floodwaters are a prime
breeding grounds for mosqui-
tos, which appear to be on the
decline elsewhere in the coun-
ty.
Burgess said Cool wants to
visit with Archbold before tak-
ing any action that may
adversely affect the ecosystem
there.
No other action has been.
taken by the board of county
commissioners regarding the
mosquitos.


Wednesday, explaining that
some projects will be dropped
from the plan. "You get what
you pay for." -
Bullard di? cussed the impact
fees adopted at 25 percent of
what a consultant predicted
growth would cost. Divided
into eight functional areas, the
school fee was the only one
implemented at 50 percent.
The county -will collect the
fees beginning Jan. 1.
"We're. not going to get a
lump sum of $2imillion thrown
in our lap," county budget man-
ager Timothy R'| Mechling said,
discussing the issues that come,
with impact fees. "We hope to


see it over nine months."
Impact fees are collected in
three districts north, central
and south and must be spent
in those areas on new infra-
structure required by growth.
The 28-percent budget,
increase was a result of
increased property values from
the boom experienced in the
county in recent years as coastal
residents sought refuge here
from overcrowding there.
But, ad valorem taxes are
used for county operations and
salaries, explained Mechling.
CIP projects are primarily fund-
ed by a one-percent sales tax.

between the two accounts.
Mechling said sales tax rev-
enue increased in past years
steadily at three to four percent
whereas construction costs rose
40-50 percent, relatively
overnight.
In addition to the economic
realities of a development
boom, Highlands County must
comply with a state law that
mandates concurrency the
ability to show that infrastruc-
ture can keep up with the pace
of growth which is why the
commissioners looked to
impact fees.
The impact fees will supple-
ment the funding already in
place via .sales taxes. Other
funding sources include grants
when available and bonds when
feasible, Mechling said.
Had the county-implemented
impact fees at 100 percent of
what v-as recommended by
Tindale-Oliver and Associates,
Bullard said Highlands would
have been able to fund the
Capital Improvement Plan as is.
"Even at 50 percent, we still
would have been able to fully
fund the CIP and 'add some
growth related projects,"
Bullard said.
As it stands now, projects
such as a new Veterans
Service/Human Services build-
ing will have to compete with
other'projects. and something
will have to give.
"You have to cut back your
expenditures to match the rev-
enue you have available,"'
Bullard said, predicting that the
commission will be pressured
in coming years to increase
impact fees.


Faced with red ink in the
operations budget several years
ago, Bullard said the county had
to layoff staff. who were never
re-hired.
"It's the first time I've seen
red ink in our capital improve-
ments plan since I've been on
the commission," Bullard said,.
noting that:he has eight years on
the board. "That's why the next
meeting we have on the capital
improvement plan is important.
Essential projects cost more
than the money that is available
for them."
A date hasn't been deter-
mined for the workshops where"
commissioners will prioritize
and, in some cases, cut projects
from the plan. .
Ambulances and other equip-
ment on the Capital
Improvement Plan are replaced
regularly to account for the
point of diminishing returns,
when upkeep. maintenance
becomes more expensive than
what it's worth. ,
Some schedules may have to
be extended over a longer time
frame, which decreases levels
of service and increases liability
risks.
Bullard said some projects:
rely upon state matching funds,
or are-mandated by state or fed-
eral governments.
"We. have little choice, we
have to do these projects," he
said, citing jail size an example.
of a mandate. "There's not
much left that you have to work
with to balance the budget and
begin necessary projects. Sadly,
some people have been waiting
a long time for those projects."

VENUS The woman from
whom the county confiscated
108 dogs and two cats was
given a chance to take one of
the dogs back.
Constance "Connie" Mack,
of Venus, declined the offer
because, she doesn't have a
place to keep a pet, Highlands
County spokeswoman Corine
Burgess said Thursday.
After years of complaints
from neighbors, animal, control
raided Mack's property Aug. 11
and :pent the ne\[xt several
eLeks collecting the animals
from a \anriet of pens sever-
al piles of pallets, a school bus.
a mobile home. barn and huts
- all co ered in feces .se'erctl

"The state attorney\ declined
to prosecutee" Burgess said.
"She's not allowed to ha.e
more than three dogs at one
lime in the count\ and the'
must be spared or neutered."
Of the Il-S dogs captured. 83
here euthanized and 25 adopt-
able does \%ere sent to
Okeechohee Animal Services.
Burgess said.


The two cats found sharing a
carrier half-filled with, feces
were also taken to Okeechobee.
The county commission
approved a notice of nuisance
Tuesday for Mack's two acres
at 465 Earnhardt Drive in
Venus, and county code
enforcement officer Tommy
Turnbull could seek to place a
lien on her property.
But, as long as she continues
cleaning the site, Turnbull said
he'll consider the alernative-


releasing the notice of nuisance.
"It is better," Tumbull said of
his visit Tuesday to Mack's
property. "It's not completed
but I'm very impressed with the
improvement. I just don't want
her to stop."
Turnbull said the mobile
home and accessory buildings
were demolished and placed.in
the middle of lMack's property.
The pallets are in the pile too,
and abandoned vehicles were
moved to the front of the yard.
"If she cleans that pile and


removes all the vehicles plus
pays the $250 administrative
fee, I'll release the notice,"
Turnbull said.
Otherwise, a lien, represent-
ing the cumulative cost of a title
search, clean up by the lowest
bidder and the county's fee will
be placed on the property.
Mack, who called the News-
Sun in -August during the first
day of canine confiscation,
refused to comment when con-
tacted Sept. 29.

Highlands Regional to begin hospitalist physician program


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
Regional Medical Center has
recruited several highly trained
and board certified physicians
to its new hospitalist program,


which began Oct. 1.
A hospitalist is a physician
who specializes in the care of a
patient while admitted to the
hospital for medical reasons or
surgery. During a patient's stay,


the hospitalist will stay in close
communication with, the
patient's referring physician,
ensuring they receive the best
care possible. Because hospital-
ists provide patients with con-


hospital care. Once a patient is
discharged from the hospital,
he/she will resume receiving
care from his/her own personal
physician.
Several studies have high-
lighted the high quality of care
and numerous benefits hospital-
ist physicians provide to
patients. As inpatient care spe-
cialists, hospitalists possess
extensive expertise in best treat-
ment practices; care coordina-
tion and options for post-dis-
charge care Also. since hokpi-
talists are located in the hospi-
tal, the\ can spend more time


with their patients, improving
communication and timely
patient care.
Hospital medicine is one of
the fastest growing medical
fields and just one more way
that Highlands ?Regional is
making the care and comfort of
their patieni ajnd families a pri-
ority.
In tLirting its hospitalist pro-
g raim Highlands Regional joins
a host of hospitals around the
nation. The Societi of Hospital
Medicine estimates there are

tinuous care, allowing them to
see the same physician for
much of their hospital stay, the
hospitalist program at HRMC
provides patients with comfort
and stability.
"Highlands Regional physi-
cians care very much about
their patients and we found that
they were trying to do the
impossible by being with. their
patients in the hospital while
they are ill or recovering from
surgery and trying to see their
patients, for routine visits in
their offices. Obviously they
could not be in two places at
once," HRMC chief executive
officer Bob Mahaffe' said.
"That is why we. created the
hospitalist program to provide
each patient and their families
with a board certified physician
that will care for the patient
while in the'hospital and keep a
constant stream of information
flowing between the patient.
their family and their family

Hospitalists work closely \
with a patient's own personal

in the hospital, from admissions
to discharge. Working exclu-

"deep, caring desire to help
children."

action "to address a problem
facing children or youth," and
have provided "five years of
service directly affecting the

ists. Those finalists then submit

special selection committee.
This committee chooses the
recipient from among them.
Committee members look for
the individual whose work has
touched the largest number of
children, demonstrated a long-
term commitment, given volun-
teer service above and beyond
expectations, and created, by
their service and enthusiasm, a
ripple effect among others

work, or expanding the service.,

major fund-raising event for the
'Children's Services Council
and Foundation, which are
United Way agencies.

sored by the council and foun-
dation are the Avon Park Youth,
Academy, a school oflajt resort

By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County residents should be pre-
pared to see an influx of motor-
cycles this Weekend.
Over 30,000 motorcycle rid-
ers and enthusiasts are expected
for the 3rd Annual Run to the
Heartland, which begins today.
Music, vendors, safety
demonstrations, and other
activities are all part of the fes-
tivities. But the event serves not
just as a place for motorcycle
riders to congregate. It's also a
way to showcase Sebring in
particular and Highlands
County in general.
Opening ceremonies begin at
11 q.m. Friday. Vendors will be
open then, showcasing a wide
variety of :merchandise. Also,
there will be bands playing on
the stage at E. Center Street
during all three days of the
event.
The festivities continue
Saturday with opening cere-
monies at 9 -a.m., which will
feature 1 News Channel 8
Mleteorologi is Steve Jerve as
the special gudst.
The bike show will begin
with sign-ups at 9 a.m. There
will be .14 categories of compe-
tition, .including Ame rican
bikes;, trick,, antique, classic,
chopper. home built, and more.
Judging starts at 3 p.m., and the
winner will be announced at 5.
There will also be a people's
choice category where visitors
can walk around, look `at each
category of the bikes,and pick
their favorite.
Another highly anticipated
event Saturday is the Poker
Run, The event is designed to
showcase the various attrac-
tions that Highlands County has
to offer.
Riders sign up and pay $10,
and they are given a map which
instructs them to go to different
places around the county.
Destinations include Avon
Park, Highlands Hammock
State- Park, the Lake Placid
'murals, and more.
At each destination, they will
be given a set of colored beads.
-which rf1 turn in at the end of
their journey. They are given a


card for each of the seven sets
of beads, and the best poker
hand from those sets of cards

and other important topics
.Saturday and Sunday. Also,

For riders who have children,

momals, and the "Blessing of'

Last year's event drew over
15,000 visitors, and organizers
are expecting 30,000 this year.
The impact of the event is
huge, according to Dan
Andrews, executive director of
the Sebring Chamber of
Commerce.
"It's hard to put a price on the
exposure that is generated
through an event like this,"
Andrews said. "In addition to
the actual numbers that ydu can
track, you have that intangible,
that exposure to historic down-
town Sebring and ourcommrnu-
nity.
"It's unfathomable what that
gives us long term. Hopefully
that will generate a return trip
for other.events, oritfflyb con-
sidering Sebring. in the,future if
they're deciding to relocate."
The Run to the Heartland is
put on by the Heartland Riders
Association, a non-profit group.
made up of about 350 members
who volunteer their time. All
profits from the event are ear-.
marked for charity.

ROMONA WASHINGTON I attended an awards program

thereafter principal Stu Guthrie

up some rules for dating


AT RANDOM

Romona Washington' .

wander and I started ldoking at
the bo s and thinking about that
magical age of dating.. My
thoughts took me back to a list
of "rules" that one of m. class-
mates. Daphne Wall Murrell.
shared with me for hier daugh-
ter. I've decided to revise and
adopt them myself.
Rules for Dating MyN
Daughter
Rule One: IfNou pull into m\ .
'dri\e\wa and honk you'd better
be delivering a package.
because you're sure. not picking
an thing up.
Rule Two: You do not touch
m r daughter in front of me. Yofu
may glance at her. so long as
you do not; peer at an. thing
below her. neck. If you cannot'
keep \our eyes or hands off of
my. daughter's body, I will
remote them.
Rule Three: Iaam aware that
it is considered fashioriable for,
boys of your age to wear their
trousers so' 'loosely that the.N
appear to be falling off their,;
hips. Please don't take this as all
insult; but you and all of your,
friends are complete idiots.
Still, in.,order to ensure that
your clothes do not, in fact,
come off during the course of
your date with my daughter, I
will take my electric nail gun
and fasten your trousers secure-


ly in place to your waist.
Rule Four: I'm sure you've
been told that in today's world,
sex Without utilizing a "barrier
imethOd" of some kind canl kill
you. Let me elaborate, when it
'comes to sex. I am the barrier,
and I will kill you. '
Rule Five: .It .is usually-
understood that in order for us
to get to know each other. we
should talk about sports, poli-
tics. and other issues of the day.
Keep in mind. the onli infor-
mation I require from you is an
indication of \when you expect
to haxe my daughter safe
back at my house, and the onl\
word I need from you on this
subject is "earl\."
Rule Si\: I lia\e no doubt
you are a popular fellow. %\nth,
many opportunities to date
other girls. This is fine \with me
as long..as it is OK w ith my
daughter. If not. once \ou ha\e
gone out \with m. little girl. SotL
\\ ill continue to date no one but
her until she is fished \with
you .. .
,If \ou make her cv. I Uill
make ou' cry and.don't think
for a second that my' being a
ominan means 1 can't make you'
cry. All it wouldd take would be'
a phone call to my daughter's
Pa or her uncle and what I can't
take care,of, I will guarantee
the3 \\ill, '.
Rule Seven: As you stand in
my front hallway; ,airing for
my daughter to appear, 'and,
more than an hour goes by, do
not sigh 'and fidget. Instead of
just standing there, why don't
you do something useful, like
changing the oil in my car?.
She'll be ready When she's
ready.
Rule Eight: The following
places are not appropriate for a
date with my daughter. Places
where there Are beds, sofas, or


an% thing 'softer than a wooden
stool. Places where there are no
parents, policemen, or nuns
within eyesight. Places where
there is darkness. Places where
there is dancing, holding hands,
or.happiness. Movies with a
strong romantic or sexual theme
are to be avoided. Hockey
games are OK. Old folks homes
are better.
Rule Nine: Do not lie to me.,
On issues relating to my daugh-
ter, I am the all-knowing, mer-
ciless god of your universe. If I,
ask you % here you are going
and with w hom, ou have one
chance to tell me the truth, the
"hole uuth and nothing but the
t:uth. Trust me, you do not want
to lie to me. Besides, my daugh-
..terarid I have a wonderful rela-
tronship in which wetalk like-
best friends. Will find out.
Rule Ten: Be afraid. Be very
afraid. It takes \er\ little for me
to mistake the sound of your.car
in the driveway. As soon as you-
pull into the dri'ewa\ you.
should exit your car with both
hands in plain sight. Speak the
perimeter password, announce.
in a clear, voice that you have
brought 'my daughter home.
safely' and early, then return to
your car there is no need for
you to come inside. The face at
the window is nine.
Thank goodness my daughter
is, still not of age to be dating,
but I send forth one more warn-
ing for any young boy wvho con-
siders asking her out once she
reaches that magical ace of 16:
It these rules are too complicat-
ed for you to understand. then
you have no business even dat-
ing my daughter

What a 'great article in
Friday's (At Random, Sept. 29)
paper' My sentiments exactly. I
believe manners have gone the
,way of working parents and
putting the kids on hold with
taking the time to, teach them
right-from wrong. Gone are the
:days when kids were afraid' of
their parents,' and not because
parents were beating them but
because they made rules for the
family that. were strictly
enforced.
A great story that has been in
our family for ears happened
when my husband was a young
bo\ about 10-11. He kept get-'
Sting into trouble at school and
Though his mom worked, it was
al a s' the mother that was
called in such! circumstances.
My husband's mom came to,
School time after time because
of his bad behavior. Finally she
got disgusted.
She told the teacher that she
did notwant to be called again.
.She, told her that the next
time there is-trouble with him
to call his dad home from work
instead.,
Now, my husband's dad was
a quiet,' mild mannered man
and so when he was called to
school from work he simply
walked into the classroom,
filled with children. He quietly
called my husband up to the
front of the class.,
As my husband stood in
.front' of all his classmates, his
father quickly bent down,
.ripped clown his drawers and
spanked the heck out of his
bare butt in front of the entire
class. Needless to say there was
never, a need to be called to
school again for bad behavior.
So, having heard this story a
million times, it just so hap-
pened my, husband and I
had three of our own sons who
were told.this story many times
also.
One turned out to be just like
his dad. After being called to

school time and. time again I
decided to copy my mother-in-
laws words, "Don't ever call
me again, from now on call my
husband home from work." I
was a little nicer though.
When my son came home
that day I .told .him the plan for
him and that he must make his
own choices. My husband
never had to be called. My son
'became a model student. He is
now a man of 42 with two
young children, one of which is
just like him.
Guess what story he tells his
children. He's never had to go
to school for a discipline prob-
lem yet.

Groups neglect

forethought

Editor:
There they go again!
A report came out stressing
the great dilemma of our gov-
ernmental agencies "neglect-
ing" to foresee the long range
cost of the benefits bestowed
upon' workers in Florida and.
around the country. Could it be,


that there are still retirees who
haven'tbeen hit by lost pen-
sions, health benefits, insur-
ance and other gains earned by'
workers after 30, 40, 50 years
of honest labor?
The gist of the report is that
employers and union represen-
tatives were "overly" generous
in giving these benefits without
the essential analysis of what it
would cost 40, 50, 60 years in
time. It was mentioned again,
as noted, several times by this
writer, that said benefits were
assigned in lieu of increased,
wages. That is, no salary
increase but a commensurate
benefit in the form of health,
pension, vacation benefits, etc.
Initially, those benefits were
tax free, another "bonus," how-
ever, in time even those bene-
fits were taxed.
About four years ago, it was
noted that the working people
of this country had' struggled
long and hard; they had fought
with blood and guts to earn a
decent wage to support a fami-
ly. Is there anyone who can
remember when men worked
and women stayed home to
care for the children? They
worked seven days a week


'I should confess that I always felt a little sorry for

people who didn't work for newspapers.'

MARY McGRORY, journalist, 2004


from stinup to sundown, but
through the bloody battles, they
reduced their hours to six days
and; 60 hours;'then five days
and 40 hours. The other bene-
fits trickled in over the years.
Then all of a' sudden' the
American worker is almost
back where she began. Yes,
"s/he." For the last 40 years or
so, it has been necessary for
both spouses: to work in order
to gain those good things in
life, like good furniture, two
cars (maybe), entertainment
appliances and vacations. The
American worker, the middle
class, never had it so good from
World War II to 1980. That is
when the loss of good wages
and great benefits began to
slide. The pension and health
benefits decreed by federal law
to be preserved in funds, allo-
cated for future needs had
grown to tens of millions.
However, corporate America
persuaded the government to
reduce those "excessive" funds
and Junk Bonds were used to
take over corporations which
held those funds, which in turn
used those funds to pay for the
worthless Junk Bonds. The
coup de'tat was our. govern-
ment relieving corporate
America of further obligations
for promised and earned bene-
fits. Corporate America the, last
20 years simply did not fund
those promised benefits. That
was private industry.
The current report is going
after government promised
benefits. It would be interesting'

to know who initiated the new
Government Accounting
Standards Iloard and who
wrote the- regulations,. etc.
Maybe, only retirees remember
when government workers
were the lower tier of employ-
ment. That has .changed.
Today government workers
are protected and get benefits.
while those in private industry
do not; thus, it must be time to
"level the playing field." Can it
be assumed that the benefits
accrued were not calculated in
the salaries, unlike those fund-.
ed in private business, then
stolen?' Would it amount to the
same if those benefits are not
funded currently, thus requiring
government to reduce benefits
in the next year or so to "bal-
ance the books?" Think about
it.

America is in

state of distress

Editor:
I believe that every patriotic
American should display the
American flag in an upside
down position. That is the
international sign of distress.
With an $8 trillion national
debt, which is forever increas-
ing;
With corrupt politicians in
every comer of our govern-
ment, city, county, state and our
federal government;
Crooked politicians getting
us involved in unnecessary
wars, so some arms manufac-
turer can make billions of dol-
lars in profits, off the backs of
American taxpayers;
Crooked politicians out-


sourcing American jobs to for-
eign countries, putting thou-
sands of American workers out.
of work;
Crooked politicians getting
paid off to look the other way,
while crooked chief executive
officers and corporations raid
workers' retirement funds;
Crooked politicians raiding
Social Security and Medicare
funds, while they give them-
selves pay increases;
Crooked politicians getting
paid off to look the other way,
while crooked corporations
fleece (plunder) consumers;
Crooked politicians getting
paid off to look the other way,
while oil companies make $8
billion in profits off the ,backs
of consumers;
Crooked politicians' getting
paid off to look the other way,
so crooked credit card compa-
nies can charge 29.99 percent
interest rates;
Crooked politicians taking
away more and more of our
Constitutional rights and free-
doms, all in the name of
"Homeland Security;"
Crooked politicians getting
paid off to look the other way,
while crooked phone compa-
nies continue to. charge con-
sumers a "Spanish American
War Tax" III years after the
"Spanish American War;"
And on and on and on.
Yes indeed, America is, in a
state of distress.

President not in


world thought than how our
military is treated. He was of
the opinion that the laws of the
Geneva Convention was being:
changed. Actually accusing our
president of being in favor of
torture.
I have personally heard our
president speak on this matter;
that was not what I heard. My
understanding is that he wants
these laws clarified; they have
been somewhat -vague. He
wants the military to be able to
understand just what is legal
and what is not. He is also
against them being tried before
an international court. I think
we owe them that much.
One of the gentlemen had
been in the heat of battle and
had also been a prisoner of war.
He agreed that there was a need
for the president's action.
,Senator (John) McCain also
endorses this clarification; he is
also a veteran. These are surely
men who are qualified to speak
on these matters.
- There will always be differ-
ences of opinion, but can we
afford to disregard the welfare
of those who are risking their
lives for the safety of our
nation. Think about it.
Let me remind you of the
upcoming election Nov. ,7. I
trust you are praying for wis-
dom on how to vote. These
elections are of the utmost
importance. Be prepared, ask
for God's guidance as you cast
your votes; 'we will have to live
with the choices we make. May
the good Lord guide each of us.

Red Ribbon


Editor: i
The Kathy Fountain Show
had three gentlemen on her
show recently, very knowl-
edgeable. The University of
South Florida professor was
more concerned about what the


Week nears

Editor:
Red Ribbon Week is -a
national annual event that not
only brings awareness about


the dangers of drug and alcohol
use, but honors the memory of
Enrique "Kiki" Camarena, a
Drug Enforcement Agency
agent killed in the line of duty.
Each year schools participate
by wearing red ribbons, deco-
rating schools, writing essays
and other activities.
The School Board of
Highlands County's Student
Services and Tri-County
Human Resources invite you to
join us in participating with the
2006 Red Ribbon Campaign.
During the week of Oct. 21-28
we have a variety of activities
planned for our students in the
schools to increase awareness
of alcohol, tobacco and other
drug use.
Our general theme for the
week is: "Run Your Own Life-
Stay Drug Free."
This year the community
.was asked to participate along
with the Highlands County
public schools. Students will be
given a red wristband that says
"Run Your Own Life-Stay'
Drug'Free, supported by Dr.,
Steven Guelff." As students-
visit various businesses during
the week, they will be able to
receive special discounts for
wearing their wristbands.
Lakeshore Mall is hosting
the poster contest. The top
three winners at each school
will receive a $20 gift card.
One overall winner will receive
a $100 gift card. All, winning
posters will be on display at the
mall during. Red Ribbon Week
(other posters will be displayed
based on availability of space).
To kick off this campaign,
we are having our very first,
Red Ribbon Run on Saturday,
Oct. 21, at Avon Park High
School Football Field. We have
743 students from kindergarten
through high school registered
to run. Chet Brojek is the race,
director and I'm the race coor-
dinator. We are thrilled to have'


this many students interested in
participating. The community
has been very generous with 22
businesses sponsoring the T-
shirts each runner will receive.
We invite you. to lend your
support by wearing red during
the week. Put red ribbons on
your doors, your vehicles, or
around your trees. Please stop
by the mall to view our,win-
ning posters.
This week is an important
substance abuse event that
delivers a powerful "Stay Drug
Free" message to our commu-
nity's most precious resources,
our youth, their parents and res-
idents of Highlands County.

SEBRING- Lily Mae
Moses celebrated her 100th
birthday Sept. 15 when the First
Missionary Baptist Church of
Sebring on Lemon Street had a
part\ and sang her favorite
song, -"My Bod '-Belongs. to
God." '.
"Of course, sometimes I'm
sick. but the Lord is my God.
The part\ was a surprise to me.
I cried and thanked God that he
let me li'e to be this old."
Moses said.
Moses was one of nine kids
born to her parents. She no%\
onl\ has one brother. Willie
Da% Hunter. 89. li ing in a
nursing home in Blake(l. Ga.
Moses' dad was a farmer
w\ho grew cotton, corn and
peanuts and died at age 60. She
remembers growing up and
working the fields. Her mom
died at age 50. "The Lord
always took care of me. I was
converted at age 12." Moses
said.
Although her granddad chose
her gi'en name, she was always
know n as "Little Bit" as a kid.
She married Will Moses at
age 21 when visitingg
Kissimmee.
"He %\as a railroad man and
he got transferred to Sebrinng in

of our two kids a son and a
daughter.
Back in 1939, I met Fred

Nursing Ser ices. i her physti-
cal therapist, and for the past
five weeks has had Moses
walking complete\ around the
outside of her home once a da\
with the use of her \walker.


"She can \er, capable walk
through hei home, but talkingng
on unel\en ground outside \%ith
a \talker is a bit of a challenge.
But she's pretty\ good at it.
She's an independent woman."
Anaca', said.
Pastor R L. Gillian. of the
first Missionarl Baptist Church
of Sebring. has know n Moses
for the 12 .ears since he came
here.
"Even at her age. hei concern
is alw\. s about others first. She
loes company. and being
around others. She loes atten-
tion. I check onr her e'.ero da\
and applaud her age and facul-
ties. But if she's not eating. I
know somiethine"s wron,2. I
thank God for her. She's a cen-
uine person." Gilliamn said.
Nloses aja\s has a good
appetite, although shie's given
up coffee and no\\ drinks
lemonade instead. Various
friends often stop by to chat and
sit on her porch. NMarN Wilhams
is one of those. and she's know; n
Moses for 20 ',ears.
"I brine food and check on
her. Yesterday it w has lima
beans, turkey, necks -ome plain

But best of all I eno\ sitting on

Depression: It's different between young and old


A This is ti thinid in a series on the Florida
C,'nt 'cnc .on ..A ini. .

By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun correspondent .
TAMPA -- Depression: It's "-more than feeling sad
or blue and it's not a normal part of aging." And it's
not the same for older adults as it is for their youngerr
counterparts
Those were some of the bases covered during a ses-


sion at the 2006 Florida Conference on ,A
The speaker was psychologist
Dr. Larry Dupree; chairman of
the Department of Aging and
Mental Health, Florida Mental
Health Institute. .University of
South Florida. .

people, he said. do not report

fewer calls to crisis centers..
But these patients show more of a loss of interest in
life, feel more hopeless and helpless about the future
and express feelings of uselessness. The\ are more irri-
table, \\orr. more and ha'e frequent impulses to cry.
At the same time, older depressed adults harbor


fewer feelings of lo'. self-esteem and of guilt than
younger depressed adults.
Depression among the elderly, can also result in dif-
ficulties with memory and concentration.
The elderly also talk less about suicide and attempt
suicide less often than other age groups, but tihe hate
a higher completion rate. Complicating the statistics are
passive\e suicides," w here the person 'accidentallY"
overdoses, or refuses to eat. "There are mIany tnem-

One of the most pronunent signs of depression in
older adults has to do with physi-
cal complaints. They have many.

i more such complaints than

h this has been a lifelong trait,
Dupiee said. "ani increased inter-
Sest in health seems related to the:

Sleep difficulties are among
the most common complaints of
the depressed older person, along with appetite distur-
bance (either under- or over-eating).
Fatigue is also a common problem. A frequent com-
plaint is. "I just couldn't get going."
Because older adults may not talk about feeling

The epic battle


Sexual misconduct, adultery,
perversion, deviants, sexual
crimes, child abductions,
Internet predators and sexual
temptations are all around us in
our face everyday in written
form, on the radio and on tele-
vision. You say you can chose
not to read it; turn off the radio
and the TV, but what about your
co-workers, your' family and
friends? How about the people
in front of you in the line at the
grocery tore? ,
Can you escape it; can you
- get away from evil? No not
Totally. You can certainly shelter
yourself and your family from
evil as best you can but you can
not totally escape it because
Satan walks the earth with us.
Don't believe me? Well, do you
believe the Bible? In Job 1:7
"The Lord. said to Satan,
'Where have you come from?'
Satan answered the Lord,
'From roaming through the
earth and going back and forth
in it.' In 2 Corinthians 10:14-
15, "And no wonder, for Satan
himself masquerades as an
angel of light. It is not surpris-
ing then, if his servants mas-
querade as' servants of right-
eousnes."
Masquerading as servants of
righteousness ... could that be
like people whom we trust with
our children like teachers, pas-
tors,, child care volunteerss,
grandparents, or people of
power in society, government
officials, even presidents? The
show "To Catch a Predator"
gives,us hard evidence that sex-
ually immoral people are in
every walk of life. I have 'seen
police, pastors, teachers,
fathers, ,government officials,
military people and the average
everyday Joe caught in these
sting operations. I have, seen
these shows aired time and time
again and I am amazed how
many people still seek out chil-
dren for sex on the Internet but


more amazed at how
many: show up at the
house. And many of
them confessing they
have seen-:the show.
Does that not show
you how powerful
sexual immorality is?
And by the way don't
get upset or take me
the wrong way, I'm
not saying everyone
who fits in those cat-
egories are evil and
sexually immoral I-
am simply saying no
one or no type of per-.

Barry S


son is immune from being
deceived by the devil. Satan
uses people's weaknesses to his
advantage who are in these
positions. How many teachers
have recently been in the news
for sex with a minor, how many
pastors? How many govern-
ment officials careers have
ended because of sexual mis-
conduct even one' of our own
presidents? Sexual immorality,
is one of the most prevalent sins
that Satan uses to deceive peo-
ple and to hold them captive.
He knows it makes people feel
dirty and that they are no good
anymore. They even think God
would never forgive them for
what they have done, the one
who loves all and forgives all
no matter what the sin. Why is
it so hard to believe you can be
forgiven? Because it's a very
personal thing with you and
your body.
Sexual immorality is a tool of
the' devil to bring so much
destruction to the world. The.
Bible explains in 1 Corinthians
6:18-20 why it is the worst,
"Flee from sexual immorality.
All other sins a man commits
are outside the body, but he who
sins sexually sins against his
own body. Do you not know
that your body is a temple of the
Holy Spirit, who is in you,
whom you have received from

God? You are not

(With the blood of

honor God with your

Schnable immorality, theft.
- false testimony, slan-
, der. These are what'
make a man

one of the worst of all sins. It
* leads to all the things listed
above does it not cause al'
man to lie, deceive, use as
power over another and even to
kilf? Does it not bring unwanted
pregnancies that can result in
abortion, or children being mur-
deredi after birth? How about
diseases that can not be cured?
Of all diseases in the world that
have cures interestingly enough
there is no cure for herpes or
HIV/AIDS sexually trans-
mitted diseases.
I mentioned officers before
caught on the "Dateline" show.
Do you, fellow, officers, know
what charge of misconduct that
most officers'lose their certifi-
cation over is? That's right -
sexual misconduct usually list-
ed as sex on duty. Even we,
'Soldiers of Christ the, Sons of
God are not safe. Matthew 5:9
states, "Blessed are the peace-
makers for they will be called
sons of God."
Sexual immorality is a
plague that has overtaken the
world. It has affected every
aspect nothing and no one is
safe there is nothing you can
do about it. How can you pro-
tect yourself? How can you
ward off evil? Well you alone
,can not, but there is one who
,can protect you Jesus. All


you have to do is ask him into
your life, give your life to him
and you will be protected it's
as simple as that. You can fight
the devil with no fear. Jesus has
already conquered death, he has
already defeated Satan. Satan
has no hold on you unless you
allow it, unless you invite him
in with your sinful ways.
Rebuke Satan in the name of
Jesus Christ, resist him (resist
temptation) and he will flee
from you. .,
Ae .\\e, oflicers, not exam-
ples to' society as how. to live,
how to conduct ourselves?
Have not some of our brothers
and sisters failed? Some have a
very small percentage though.,
To the public; of the more than,
500,000 officers in the United
States onlyabout roughly 1 per-
cent are decertified for sexual
misconduct but it does happen
unfortunately. I am calling out
to all Christian officers and offi-
cers who want to become
Christians to take a stand -
with their colleagues and the
public to ,be an example of
righteousness to society, to the
children, to each other and most
importantly to God. We would
not lie down and become a vic-
tim when a crime is being com-
mitted right? We would fight
with all our might sometimes
even sacrificing our life. Well
then don't lie down and become
a victim to Satan, get up and
fight.
God bless you and I pray that
you seek him out to give you
the strength you need to fight
off evil.

discussed how these thieves are able to obtain the most personal

tech, including stealing data from wireless Internet, i.e. Other
means,are direct from gullible people through fraud and decep-
tion, including searching waste cans. Hayes cautioned everyone
to be extremely careful about diulging and disposing personal

mize the risk and what to do if a person suspects ID theft.
Information sheets were distributed with instructions for future

songs during -the worship serv-
ice. Lambert will be preaching
on the topic of "Eternl
Security." The church has been
going through its'Staterent of
Faith and members are now on6
Article XI. .
Article XI reads as follows:
"We believe 'that all'who are
truly born again are kept eter-
nally by God the Father for
Jesus Christ. We believe that. it
isthe privilege of Believers to
rejoice in the assurance of their
salvation through, the testimo-
ny of God's Word, which how-
ever, clearly forbids the use of
Christian liberty, as an occasion
to the flesh."
If anyone did not understand
the previous paragraph, then.
come and hear Lambert explain
what everyone believes the
Bible teaches about' eternal
security. The supporting
Scripture is John 10:27-30, I

and Titus 2:11-15.,

cerning children's church.

Jesus Christ's work saved to better man RELIGION


"It is finished," based from
John 19:30.
When Jesus uttered those
dying words at Golgotha it sig-
naled more than the end of his
earthly sojourn here on earth.
Those words marked the begin-,
-ning of a new and better way
for man to be in a relationship
with God. Man had tried for
centuries to please God by good
behavior or law keeping -
only to fail at every turn. Great
men like the "friend of God"
Abraham and David a "man
after God's own heart" had tried
and failed. No one who had
tried had ever kept the law of
God perfectly ... until Jesus.
'Therefore when He came into
the world, He said, "Sacrifice
and offering You did not desire.
But a body You have prepared
for Me. In burnt offerings and
sacrifices ,for sin You had no
pleasure. Then I said, Behold, I
have come in the volume of
the book it is written of Me -
To do Your will, 0 God. By that


will we have been -
sanctified through
the offering of the
body of Jesus Christ
once for all ... But
this Man (Jesus),
after He had offered
one sacrifice for sins
forever, sat down at
the right hand of
God," based from VER
Hebrews 10: 5-7, SPIN
10,12. At the cross
Jesus finished what VII
God had always ,
wanted ... his will Verlor
kept in a human
body.
So what does that mean for
us? It means our sin debt has
been paid in full. It also means
we can stop,trying to, save our-
. selves, stop trusting in our abil-
ity to keep a law and trust in the
fact that Jesus has already done
that for us.
Think how silly we must
look to Jesus for trying to
accomplish something for our-


ILOn

TAM

n G


g-. selves that he has
S-' already done for us.
Salvation is not man-
accomplished, it is
God-accomplished.
Think of what the
Bible says concern-
ing our efforts. Do
you think your good
works can save you
IN S or keep you saved?

1uAL "For by grace you
have been saved
MIN through faith, and
that not of your-
:arrell selves; it is the gift of
- God, not of works,.
lest any man shall.
boast," based from Ephesians 2:
8-9. Are you thinking maybe
you can be saved by your
morality or your righteousness?
Listen to Titus. "But when the
kindness and the love of God
our Savior toward man
appeared, not by works or right-
eousness which we have done,
but according to His mercy He
saved us" based from Titus 3:4-


5. You see it really is all about
Jesus and what he has accom-
plished for us.
When Jesus, weak from the
beating and the crucifixion
spoke the words "it is finished,"
based form John 19:30. He was
assuring us that he had "died for
our sins," based from 1
Corinthians 15:1-4, "became sin
for us," based from 2
Corinthians 5:21 and "suffered
for us", based from 1 Peter
2:21. He was letting us rest on
the promise that he "bore our
sins in His own body on the tree
... and by His stripes we are
healed," based from 1 Peter
2:24.
When we know these things
and more importantly trust in
them, is it any wonder why the
word gospel means good news?

at Iake Placid 'Church 'of
Christ. He can be reached at

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
Oct. 7, 2001: The strong
side of Avon Park's offensive
line lived up to its reputation
as the Devils ran over
DeSoto 35-6. Guard T.J.
Mclntyre, Tackle Randolf
Monday and tight end L.T.
Galimba paved the way for
259 yards on the ground for
the Devil's fourth straight
win. Leading the way on the
ground was Travis Holder,
who carried the ball 16 times
for 135 yards and a TD.

Records
Avon Park 5-1: Lake Placid 1-4
History
Despite being county rivals, the Red Devils and Green Dragons haven't
played each other every season. Last year's 41-0 Avon Park win was
the first regular-season meeting in two years. The teams also didn't play
in 1989-90. Since 1968, the Devils and Dragons have met 34 times.
with Avon Park winning 30. Lake Placid's last win in the series came in
1998.
Last Week
Avon Park: Beat DeSoto 14-6 in a.District 12-3A at Joe Franza
Stadium.
Lake Placid: Lost a 42-26 shootout at Mulberry The win put Mulberry
in the playoffs and locked Lake Placid out of a postseason shot.
Game Notes
* Tonight is homecoming lor the Red Devils.
* Lake Placid had 289 yards rushing last week, and has averaged
around 250 yards in every game except one this season.
* Avon Park's most lopsided win ever came against Lake Placid On
their way to a second straight state championship in 1988, the Devils
rolled up a 79-0 rout of the Dragons.
Coach Speak
Avon Park's Earnest Perkins: "Like I told the guys after the win last
week (against DeSolo) we can't take anyone lightly. It's just a matter of
going in and doing the things we need to do to win.That was really a
defining moment last week. I thought we all came together offense.
special teams We want to strengthen ourselves against the run game
because bLake Placid) runs the ball pretty well. I foresee a physical
football game."
Lake Placid's Shaw Maddox: "(Avon Parki is a good young football
team. Coach Perkins has got them playing virtually mistake free football
- they don't beat themselves. (On offense; they're kind of vanilla like
us. They don't do anything too exciting except they don't fumble the
football as much as we do. They play good defense and keep things
close and have been able to find a way to win at the end to go 5-1.
One thing that's killing us on defense is we're not reading our
assignments. We're too busy watching the game unfold like it s on TV
rather than reading our keys and attacking. Hopefully we learned that
lesson the other night"


Records
Sebring 2-3: Okeechobee 2-3

Coach Speak
Jared Hamlin: 'We're preparing to
run the football. We've got to get our
running game going because we
'haven'tMeeriable to do lhat all year.
Defensively, we've got to lust keep
playing like we've been playing and
cut out some of the mistakes we've
been making, but nght now we're
focusing more on getting our offense
going. iPnor is very dangerous He
looks really good on tilm,and he's very

BEDELL
Continued from ID
Seventh-day Adventists
begin their Sabbath on sunset
Friday night and end on sunset
Saturday night. As part of their
day of rest, they put aside TV,
radio and the newspaper to
devote time to worship and
family. Naturally, those things
are much more important than
sports, but there are times that
a sports fan cannot help but
wonder how the favorite team
is doing.
This weekend is a bitter-
sweet example. My beloved
D&troit Tigers, those true
heroes of working folk every-
where, defeated those hated,
New York Yankees Thursday
afternoon to even up their
playoff series at one game
each. You remember the
Yankees. Those overpaid rep-
resentatives of the rich and
powerful that oppress the poor.
Yes, those Yankees.
The Tigers and Yankees play
twice in Detroit. They will
play Friday night and Saturday
afternoon. Before I turn on the
TV or radio again, the Tigers.
may be out of the playoffs, or
the series may be going back
to New York for game five.
Dare I say it? Detroit could
defeat the Yankees twice and
kick the Yankees right in their
wallets.
Now there are ways I can
cheat on this. I can turn on the
computer and look for the
score on the Internet. I do lis-
ten to Christian radio stations
on Saturday and sometimes
they give sports scores. Well,
certain ones do, but I haven't
intentionally looked for those
stations. That is my story and
I'm sticking to it.'
Now years ago, it was pretty,
tough to cheat. I remember
when I was 10 years old. I was
growing up in Michigan and I
loved rooting for the Detroit
Tigers. Now, my dad is not a
Seventh-day Adventist and
occasionally he would work on
*a project in the garage after
Saturday lunch with the radio
tuned to the Tigers.
At those times, I just might
find something to play with in
earshot of the garage. On the
- September day in 1968 when
Denny McLain was pitching'


for his 30th win, my dad began
to leave the garage and he
turned off the radio!
"Ah, Dad," I stammered,
"aren't you going to leave the
radio on?"
A puzzled look crossed his
face for a second and then a
grin.
"Oh I suppose I can," he
said with a laugh.
So thanks to my dad, I got
hear the last 30-game winner
in baseball history with a bit of
a guilty conscience.
Now they say confession is '
good for the soul and maybe
that is at least part of why I'm
telling this. Maybe I'm also
trying to explain some of these
local sports fans you might
meet here.
If you have co-workers or -
friends that are Seventh-day
Adventists, they might not care
much for college sports. It is
tough to get loyal to a college
football team that you only
watch when they do not play
on Saturday afternoon. Lots of
SDA sports fans love their
NFL teams. The NFL seldom
plays on Saturday.
You don't hear about the
Sebfing-Avon Park football at
my church. We haven't been to
one. If one of us has, we will
be very careful about admitting
that fact.
Last spring, I was with a
large group of mostly
Adventist high school students
for a week-long trip in
Orlando. One of our chaper-
ones was a member of another
denomination. We struck up a
friendship while discussing the
NBA and other sports.
He was a big Chicago Bulls
fan. We were at the beach on
Saturday evening, and as we
got in the cars to head back to
our camp, he asked with a
question with a pleading voice.
"Hey Mr. Bedell, do you
think you could find a sports.
talk station on that radio so we
could here some scores?" he
asked me. "If feel like I've
been in a cave since Friday
afternoon."
"Oh yeah, I can do that," I
assured him.
I knew the feeling so well.

DRAGONS
Continued from 1D
both teams knuckled down for
long rallies and an evening full
of lead changes thereafter.
Kristen Massung continued to
shine at the net and Gilde's
powerful kills played a part in
games three and four. In game
three, the teams found them-
selves knotted at 8, 11, 12 and
21, but several Lake Placid
surges were stopped short when
they seemed to lose track of
their opponent's back line.
Long Dragon shots gave
Frostproof some breathing
room and a close call on serve
for the Bulldogs gave them a
22-21 lead they wouldn't relin-
quish.
Game four would have been
the most action-packed game of
the night, had it not been for a
tremendous final frame that had
both benches and the crowd
filling the gymnasium with
cheers.
Massung and Underwood
effectively stole the show with
their nei play, thumping spikes
and blocking Frostproof attacks
when it mattered most.
With the game tied at 24, a
Frostproof net violation set up a
match point, which was put

STREAKS
Continued from 1D
three kills and two blocks to
spark a 10-1 run that put the
visitors up 17-15.
After a Sebring point, Muse
kept pressing the attack, getting
three straight kills at one, point
- she finished with 11 in the
match as DeSoto grabbed a
21-16 lead and coasted the rest
of the way.
"I'm proud of the girls. They
had moments of spectacular'
play tonight," Sinness said, "I


was very, impressed, but with a
team like DeSoto, we can't let
up one bit, and we did all three
games. We know in two weeks
that's going to be the differ-
ence, if we can mend those mis-
takes.
"The first game, it was two
crucial serves we missed and in
the second and third games, it
was just mental errors (and) lit-
tle things we need to work on."
Brittany Bullock and Selma
Younes led Sebring with six
kills each, and Hannah Shoop
had five blocks, all of them in
the third game.


away by Tara Weeks serve that
ushered in the deciding game.
The final game didn't disap-
point, Lake Placid took a quick
4-2 lead until more unforced
errors opened the door for the
,Bulldogs, who started to sniff
an upset. A double block from
Stephanie Heath and Whitney
Deloachtied it at 7, but a long
serve gave service right back to
the Dragons, who took a 12-9
lead. The Bulldogs gathered
themselves with a late time-out
and took four unanswered
points.
Two points later, the
Bulldogs held serve and match
point, but the Dragons were
determined to make it a memo-
rable senior night.
Underwood's dramatic dig to
tie it at 14 and an ace for match
point ended a valiant effort by
the Bulldogs.
"I felt sorry for Rachel
(Carr). She had a really bad
migraine and I had to pull her
out," coach Marilyn Jones said,
after the emotional victory.
"Frostproof gave us a great
game, they really wanted it.
That second game was more
like I wanted us to play, but
these are the kind of games we
need to play to get ready for
district."
