SFCC



observes



40 years



of growth

By KEVIN J. SHUTT

AVON PARK South Florida
Community College had more to cele-
brate Saturda. during its 40th anniver-
sanr open house than when it mo\ed to
its current location in 1970.
South Florida Junior College opened
in do-wntowin A\on Park in 1966 before
mo\ ing further south, where it served
about 300 students in seven small build-
ings on 80 acres. Don Appelquist. dean
of resource development. said.
The name changed in 1985. and the
school expanded its \ocational program.
"We no\w serve. perhaps. as many as
16.000 people in one capacity or anoth-
er," Appelquist said, explaining that the
acreage has doubled and number of
buildings tripled.
Dr. Norman Stephens is the third of
three presidents to lead the school
About fi\e years ago he took the reigns
from Dr. Catherine P. Cornelius,. \ho
came to the college in 1974.
"She really\ made some changes."
Appelquist said, crediting her with the
visionn to bring SFCC into the 21st cen-
tury. "We started to take that name 'com-
munity college" seriously."
A variety of activities were planned
mid-morning to mid-afternoon Saturday
on the campus, in addition to the open
house, to show case what the college has
to offer traditional and non-traditional
students.
Biology professor Dr. James Broen

"'A lot of students \ ho come through

ence." Broen said, before Sebring High
senior Tina Phillips and her mother wan-
dered in the room.

After looking around and a brief dis-

Broen. w% ho's been nb h SFCC for si\
years, said there's been a trend of
increased interest in science. which h he
attributed to television shows such as
-"CSI."
"I think it goes all the w\a back to the
O.J. Simpson trial." he said, recalling the
televised detailed analysis of cellular-
le el biology.
While interesting and intriguing, he

course that science is not as glamorous

Caretaker of the Year credited


with finding girlfriend's cancer


By KEVIN J. SHUTT

WAUCHULA Four sears
ago Brent Schenck made a
promise that seemed easier
said than done.
SL\ months into their rela-
tionship. Schenck discovered a
little lump in girlfriend Tina
Gilbert's breast during a
moment of passion.
After a mammogram and
biops\. Gilbert \\as diagnosed
with cancer
"I can't make .ou better but
I'll be there for Nou," he said.
recalling an earlN conversation
\with her. "That's w hat I've
been working off of since then.
Everything re\ol\es around
w hat I can do for Tina."
Work and personal pursuits
seemingly\ took a back seat to
Gilbert's cancer.
So, when a letter from the
Hardee Counti chapter of the
American Cancer Society

this year asking for nominees
for caretaker of the Near.
Schenck \%as her natural selec-

"Brent w\as always there for
me no matter what the progno-
sis \as." Gilbert said. explain-
ing she "just assumed" the
diagnosis, coupled \ith a 14-
\ear age difference, would be a
deal breaker for their fledgling
relationship. "'He's a \erN spe-

Training to focus

on targeting

capabilities
By KEVIN J. SHUTT

AVON PARK Li\e bombs
won't fall during Atlantic Strike
IV. but troops %w ill hit the streets
of A\on Park %%hen the Air
Force-driven joint training
e\ ent commences today.
"This training e\ent specifi-
cally engages aircrew s and joint
terminal attack controllers in
realistic urban close air sup-
port," Capt. Tiffan.\ Paette.
U.S. Central Command Air
Forces, said in a press release.
More than 700 people 200
of w hom will be on the ground
at Avon Park Air Force Range
through Friday will support
the exercise that includes Army.
Na\ v and Marine personnel and
equipment.
Drawing on lessons learned
from Central Command's area
of operations in Iraq and
Afghanistan and with the help
of seasoned combat veterans,
the event will train individuals
deploying to that theater of
operations.
The bombing range has a
simulated village \which is at
the heart of the trairung scenar-
ios invol ing Army ground
patrols. Air Force target spot-
ters and fixed- and rotary-wing
aircraft from each branch.
"The training en' tronment ...
includes a simulated Middle
Eastern village with opposing
forces acting as enems insur-
gents," Payette said. "Blank


munitions. smoke, ground
burst, anti-aircraft artillery and
surface-to-air simulators create
the fog of ar."
Jets will, conduct "show of
force" fly-overs at 500 feet to
counter the "opposing forces"
played b% enlisted airmen and
%w omen.
But, using the same simulat-
ed villagee Near after %ear has
the potential to create compla-
cenct as pilots and attack con-
trollers become familiar \with
the coordinates.
"This is also the first time the
to%% n of Avon Park is allo wing
(us) to conduct trairnng in their
tow n." Pa ette said. explaining
that mo ing the joint terminal
attack controllers into the %work-
ing streets of the community
will add a level of realism that
can't be acliieed on the range.
With the exception of a
Humvee parked awa\ some-
where or an occasional convoy
of military vehicless or sport
utility vehicles, she said the Air
Force's presence in town aill
be relatiely transparent
"They'll be able to call in
coordinates and targets from
the town." Payerte said. "But
the planes fly at \ery high alti-
tudes that you won't eten be
able to see them."
The pyrotechnics used on the
range to simulate the fog of \\ar
won't be employed for the
to%\ n-deployed airmen.
"The.'re not going to be out
there during odd hours or anN -
thing." she -said. noting that
when the Air Force sends its
controllers off base it should be
between 12:30-4:30 p.m. and
6.30-10:30 p.m.

LAKE PLACID From
floods to a water shortage, the
South Florida Water
Management District is dealing
with back-to-back diametrically
opposed emergencies.
On Thursday, the state
agency announced it is termi-
nating water withdrawals from
Lake Istokpoga and its canals.
"Even with (Tropical Storm)
Ernesto, we've only had 75 per-


cent of our normal rainfall since
January," Missie Barletto, water
management district spokesper-
son, said Friday. "A nice
amount of rain right now
wouldn't be a bad thing."

She said residential irrigation
use isn't affected by the ban
which applies to agricultural
SFWMD permit holders in the:
Northern Indian Prairie Water
Use Basin.
Water management person-


nel will be in the area to identi-
fy violations, Barletto said.

With sufficient rains, vari-
ances ,~ill be considered.
Information on how to obtainTa
variance will be included with
notification letters that are in
the mail to permit holders,
Barletto said in a press release.

SEBRING The 37th
Annual Gene Scheck Rotary
Apple and Sweet Cider Sale is
in full swing, and items are now
available for pre-order.
The sale is "huge," Bruce
Lybarger, self-professed "apple
csar" and head man of the sale,
said."People look forward to
this every year."
This year Lybarger expects
have enough orders to bring in
two semi loads, which will be
filled with more than 160,000
pounds of apple products.
This will be the 37th year for
the sale, which was founded by
Rotarian Gene Scheck in 1969.
Scheck, who died Wednesday,
was a prominent businessman
locally, and he had owned an
apple orchard in his old home
of Ohio.
"He had a brainstorm,"
Lybarger said. "All these
Floridians push their fruit north.
So why not bring fruit down
here?"
A wide variety of apples will
be available. Apples can be pur-
chased in a 1/2 bushel for
$8.50, or a bag for $16.
Individual apples available
for purchase include Fuji, Red
and Golden Delicious (which
can be purchased separately or
mixed), Stayman Winesap,
Jonagold, and Mutsu Crispin.
Obviously, each apple has
different characteristics. Fuji
apples are very sweet, Mutsu
Crispin apples are spicier and
firm (and very useful for bak-
ing), and Cortland apples work
best in salads.
There are also three different
variety packs available for $16.
The Baker's Box includes
Jonagold, Idared, Winesap, and
Cortland apples. Gene's Choice
includes Jonathan, Cortland,
Fuji, and Golden Delicious
varieties. The Variety Pack fea-
tures Fuji, Golden Delicious,
Melros6, and Bose Pears.
Apple cider can be purchased
at a price 6f'3 for a hplf gaallon.

during the sale, Lybarger said.
S. Apple butter will also be
available this year, even though
it doesn't appear on the order
form. Because it weighs a lot,
Lybarger said they're looking to
see how it is received before
offering it widely. "We're gaug-,
ing whether to add it on as a
regular item,"
The apple butter will be
available for, pre-order only. It
sells for $5 a pint (16 ounces).
In the past the proceeds from
the sale have gone towards
projects around the community,
including renovation of the
Sebring City Pier and the estab-
lishment of Rotary Park.
Money also goes to help chari-
table organizations, including
the Salvation Arms. Boy and
Girl Scodui'of America. Habitat
for Humanit\, and others.
QL bager highly encourage-s
customers to pre-order their


items, because they sell out
very quickly on the day of the
sale.
"Time and time again, people
come to the sale and say 'I want
that Fuji,' but we're sold out,"
Lybarger said. "So we're really
encouraging pre-ordering if you
\% ani to get what you're after.
"You need to call this num-
ber and get it ordered because
we will sell out very quickly."
There is a $10 minimum pre-
order, and the last day to order
is Nov. 2. Pre-ordered items can
be picked up and paid for on
Nov. 9 at Lakeshore Mall,
beginning at 8 a.m. Pre-orders
must be picked up by 3 p.m.

action in fight against fracture


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
Regional Medical Center is
teamed up with the
International Osteoporosis
Foundation on World
Osteoporosis Day, Friday, Oct.
20, to raise awareness about the
importance of maintaining
healthy bones in order to pre-
vent fracture.
Osteoporosis is a disease of
the skeleton, which affects over
10 million Americans today.
"Osteoporosis is an under-
appreciated, under diagnosed:
condition ,often referred to as
the silent disease) because
many Americans are unaware
that their bone health is in jeop-
ardy," according to orthopedic
surgeon Dr. Vernon Morris Jr.
"Patients need to take responsi-
bility and initiate dialogue with
their physician about bone
health."
Osteoporosis is a progressive
disease that causes bones to
become brittle, weak and thus
susceptible to fracture. The
older a person becomes, the
greater his or her risk of osteo-
porosis because bones become
thinner and weaker with aging.
Although women older than 50,
especially postmenopausal.
women are at greatest risk for
developing osteoporosis, men
are also at risk. Each year,
osteoporosis causes 1.5 million
fractures in the United States
alone. In severe cases, a slight
bump, or even coughing or
sneezing, can cause bones to
fracture.
The key to preventing osteo-
porosis is proper diet and exer-
cise.
"Taking steps to prevent
bone loss is helpful no matter
what your age or condition,"
Dr. Jose Thomas-Richards,
orthopedic surgeon, said.
"Studies show that load bearing


exercise plays a very important
roll in preventing osteoporosis
both in adolescents and adults.
Also, a diet rich in calcium and
vitamin D helps to maintain
healthy bones. Avoidance of
smoking and excessive alcohol
intake also reduces the risk of
accelerated bone loss. People
with a strong risk of osteoporo-
sis are advised to consult their
doctors for a bone mineral den-
sity test to understand their
fracture risk."
Unfortunately, a broken bone
is often the first sign of osteo--
porosis. Spinal fractures occur
most frequently, followed by
fracture of the hip and wrist.

become so weak that they col-
lapse spontaneously or with
minimal trauma. Spinal frac-
tures can cause, sudden, severe
pain or the pain may be chronic
and unrelated to specific injury.
In case of multiple spine frac-
tures, a loss of height and
stooped posture can occur.
With bed rest and pain med-
ication, spinal fractures usually
heal within eight to ten weeks,
however, these treatments do
nothing to repair the fracture or
slow do\ n bone loss. Medical
treatment include., suppleinel-:.
tal calcium and prescription
medications to address the
underlying osteoporosis.
Orthopedic treatments, such as


Balloon Kyphoplasty, a mini-
mally invasive procedure that
can repair ;pinal fractures and
reduce pain, are performed at
Highlands Regional Nledical
Center.
"A Balloon Kyphoplasty is
highly technical, requires no
sutures and is performed many
times as an outpatient proce-
dure," Morris said, "Most
patients realize considerable
improvement with dramatic
pain relief."

Lawyers support retention of Supreme Court justices, appeals judges


Special to the News-Sun
Florida voters face many
choices when they go to the
polls Nov. 7. But their choices
in merit retention elections for
three Florida Supreme Court
justices and 17 appellate judges
are clear.
According to results of The
Florida Bar's biennial merit
retention judicial poll, those
who know the work of the
jurists best Florida's attorneys
- overwhelmingly recommend
keeping them on the bench.
"I am pleased to see that
those most familiar with the


qualifications of these jurists
give them high marks," said
Henry M. Coxe, III, president
of The Florida Bar.
Supreme Court Chief Justice
R. Fred Lewis and Justices
Barbara J. Pariente and Peggy
A. Quince will be on the ballot
statewide Nov. 7 with voters
being asked whether they
should be retained or not for
six-year terms. The 17 District
Courts of Appeal judges will
appear on ballots in the counties
over which their courts have
jurisdiction with voters likewise
being asked if they should be


retained for six-year-terms.
A secret ballot mailed in
August to all lawyers residing
and practicing in Florida asked
respondents whether the incum-
bent justices and judges should
be retained or not and asked
that they consider eight attrib-
utes in their ratings. Those
attributes are quality and clarity
of judicial opinions; knowledge
of the law; 'integrity; judicial
temperament; impartiality; free-
dom from bias/prejudice;
demeanor; and courtesy.
Only lawyers indicating at
least limited knowledge or


greater of the judges were
included in the poll results. The
Bar sent out 58,682 ballots; a
total of 4,779 lawyers partici-
pated. In all, the Bar has 79,363
members. Some live out of
state; others are inactive.
With the election less than
three weeks away, The Florida
Bar is re-releasing poll results
as well as frequently asked
questions about merit retention.

For the Supreme Court, poll
results indicate:
89 percent support retain-
ing Chief Justice Lewis
84 percent favor retaining
Justice Pariente
83 percent support retain-
ing Justice Quince
For the Second District Court-
of Appeal, the results were:
90 percent favor retaining
Judge Darryl C. Casanueva
87 percent support retain-
ing Judge Charles A. Davis Jr.
89 percent support retain-
ing Judge Edward C. LaRose
M 87 percent support retain-
ing Judge E.J. Salcines


91 percent support retain-
ing Judge Thomas E. Stringer
The 2nd DCA covers
Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto,
Glades, Hardee, Hendry,
Highlands, Hillsborough, Lee,
Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk
and Sarasota counties.

For the 4th District Court of
Appeal, the results were:
89 percent support retain-
ing Judge Bobby W. Gunther
91 percent support retain-
ing Judge Fred A. Hazouri
91 percent support retain-
ing Judge Larry A. Klein
90 percent support retain-
ing Judge Barry J. Stone
88 percent support retain-
ing Judge Carole Y. Taylor
The 4th DCA covers the
counties of Broward, Indian
River, Martin, Okeechobee,
Palm Beach and St. Lucie.
Since the first merit retention
election in 1978, The Florida
Bar has published results of its
polls as a public service. In
merit retention elections, the
justices and judges run unop-


posed with voters casting bal-
lots to "retain" or "not retain"
judges in office. If the judge is
not retained, a vacancy is creat-
ed and will be filled through the
merit selection process through
which the governor will appoint
one of three to six nominees
submitted by the respective
Judicial Nominating Commis-
sions.

SEBRING What started
as a final discussion on a
revised development agreement
for a new housing development,
became a spirited discussion on
whether or not the city of
Sebring should take ownership
of a 40-acre nature preserve
adjacent to the property.
The council approved a
motion 2-1 to give the city one
year to research the park and
decide whether they want to
keep it.
Representatives of the Eagle
Lake Preserve development,
which will be located off Sparta
and Bassage Roads, said their
controlling of the park presents
liability issues they aren't pre-
pared to deal with. They then
offered to basically give the
park, which is a scrubjay pre-
serve, to the city. The city
would then have to control
access to the park and deal with
whatever liability issues might
come uip.
The park is "an ideal area to
walk in," John McClure, one of
the developer's representatives
said. But he said "I don't know
what would happen if the park
was open at night" if the home-
o v'ers. -association...had-,.toi
ass e.esponsibgity.. a esaid<
it wasn' possible fortheassoci-
ation to maintain ownership of
the park while opening it to the
public.
* Rhon Ernest-Jones, who rep-
resents the owners of the prop-
erty, offered to deed the land to
the city as a park. Parking
would be :provided by the
developers, he said.
Council president Jeff
Carlson was the "no" vote, say-
ing he thought the city should
go ahead and take it now.
"This is the first time we've
had a developer saying they'll
give us 40 acres of park," he
said. "We're really going to be
regretful in the future if we
don't take it."
If the city took ownership. it
would have to assume responsi-

Riders across two counties
are gearing up for the hottest
ride this fall, with a chance to
support American Red Cross
services in their areas.
American Red Cross Polk
County Chapter and Highlands
County Service 'Center are
gathering riders for the 2006
Fun Bike Center Ride for the
Red motorcycle poker run.
, The ride starts at 10 a.m.
Saturday, Nov. 18, in two loca-
tions. In Highlands, the pack of
motorcycles will leave from the
Circle in downtown Sebring.
For those who haven't pre-reg-
istered,- registration begins at
8:30, a.m. at the two locations.
Like most poker run rides,
2006 Fun Bike Center Ride for
the Red requires riders to visit
four road stops ending with one
final destination.
Highlands County stops
include GHC Motorsports in
Lake Placid, Carlie Lynn's Bar
in Sebring, DQ Grill & Chill in
Sebring, and Checker's Drive-
In Restaurant in Avon Park.
All proceeds from the event
will go to support American
Red Cross disaster services and
health and safety programs in
Highlands or Polk counties.
Riders may register by calling
the Highlands County Service
Center at 386-4440, 386-4443,
or hcarc@vistanet.net.

keeping people out at night, and
keeping the area clean.
Carlson said the park would
provide rare paths of recreation


in a place other than Highlands
Hammock State Park.
"The more parks we can get
to the public," Carlson said,
"more power to us."

Free seminar for spiritual


Alzheimer's caregivers planned


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Chaplain Jim
Langham, of the Good
Shepherd Hospice, wants
everyone to know an important
seminar regarding the care of
Alzheimer's patients is being
offered by the hospice on
Thursday.
Too often, Langham said,
because people don't know how
to communicate effectively
with them, Alzheimer's patients
become totally isolated and
lost.
That may not have to happen,
he said. "People with
Alzheimer's, their minds still
function to a degree, and we
can communicate."
The seminar will give practi-
cal tips and show what to do,
and what not to do.
While useful to anyone help-
ing an Alzheimer's patient
cope, the seminar is especially
designed to. help spiritual care-
givers.
Langham hopes local minis-
ters and church lay leaders will
come to the three hour and fif-
teen minute meeting, presented
at no charge.
That is because encouraging
work has been done, helping
Alzheimer's patients retain
aspects of their faith, which in
turn helps ground their every
day world.


CANCER
Continued from 1A
from which she continues to
run the administrative show.
Schenck's employers also
have been accommodating.
A cook at Wild Turkey
Tavern in south Avon Park,
Schenck's boss gave him the
flexibility he needs to drive
Gilbert to Lakeland or Tampa
for various chemotherapy and
doctor appointments.
"He cooks the, bes speaks
around," Gilbert said -
About three weeks ago,
Schenck %was hiied by Gene
Field, of Field Irrigation in,
Wauchula. A cancer survivor,
Field naturally understood
Schenck's commitment to his
girlfriend.
"When she.started treatment,.
I realized immediately how
there's nothing you can do,"
Schenck said. "Everybody
would tell us it would be OK.
But, not everything is going to
be OK."
Having never been through
this before, he said he was
scared for Gilbert, himself
and the future.
At the cancer center in
Tampa, he saw many patients
who were alone either because
significant others couldn't
afford the time off or because
there was nobody.
He said family members go
into denial while friends and
acquaintances are understand-
ably ignorant, offering words of
encouragement without an
appreciation for the suffering
and uncertainty.
The cancer traveled through-
out Gilbert's body, but went
undetected because the original
pea-sized lump didn't compel
her doctors to investigate fur-
ther.


In addition to -Langham,
three other speakers will share
their experiences of working
with Alzheimer's patients.
Bill and Lyn Roche have had
to cope with- Alzheimer's in
their own .family. They have
written extensively on the sub-
ject and facilitate care giver
support groups.
Barbara Laucks is an
ordained minister with the
United Church of Christ. She
has personally observed how
Alzheimer's patients may retain
a connection to other people
through church rituals.
Langhamn said it was particu-
larly important to identify the
rituals of a person's life early in
the disease. That way, the ritual
can be reinforced, helping the
patient to hold onto the memo-
ry.
There is a difference, he
added, between losing one's
identity, and losing one's per-
son hood.
Identity refers to those things
that make a person unique -
specific memories, skills,
habits, or talents for example;
while person hood refers more
generally to the quality of being
a human being and the dig-
nity and respect that that exis-
tence deserves, regardless of
who that person was. An indi-
vidual remains a human being,
in other words, even after that


"They call me their frequent
flyer," Gilbert said, but noted
that her doctors are pleased
nonetheless because the cancer
is stable. "Nothing is getting
bigger."
She continues to receive
radiation and hormone therapy.
Certain aches have signaled
cancer in her hips, upper and
lower back, liver, lungs and
femur.
"I really give credit to Brent
for saving my life," Gilbert
said.
.1- Schenck was at a. 1l pp pint,-
- ,in Jf Tife ha\ mng Ioshifhilhfi'e
in a divorce and w as in and out
oI jail before Gilbert entered his -
life.
"Then I met Tina and I
stopped being so wild and
crazy," he said, claiming he
gained more from their rela-
tionship than she. "I had been
tryingto turn my life around.
This has been a great situation
for me, not for Tina."
Gilbert has a degree in psy-
chology. Schenck has a truck
driver's insight of Florida's
back roads. Together. they
spent hours traveling.
Their windshield time was.
therapeutic Gilbert, under
heavy medication, slept coni-
stantly if stuck at home.
"There's no interruptions,"
he said. "We do a lot of talking
in the car."'
Schenck downplays his role,
explaining that his promise was
just as easy to keep.
"Being there is the easy
part," he said, noting that what
cancer patients need more than
anything is the presence of
somebody who cares.
"Anybody can do what I did.
The hard part is getting out
there and cutting the grass,
doing the dishes and everything
that needs to be done."


SFCC
Continued from 1A
The tent was were alumni
could sign up for the still-
being-developed alumni
association, which the school
hasn't had in its 40-year his-
tory.
"None of us ever dreamed
it would be the size it is,"
Handley said, remembering
how .faculty had to move fur-
niture themselves before
there was anything that con-
stituted a facilities staff. "We
never thought there would be
this market for education."
But, the school has
responded to the market,
mostly due to school presi-
dents who were sensitive to
the community's needs and
aware of education's role in
the bigger picture of state
funding, Handley said.
Two of her five children
graduated from SFCC -
Susie Bishop and Ron


Handley and grandson
Ronnie Jr. had played for the
baseball team.
Stephens, the current pres-
ident, said .SFCC has the
challenge of serving a three-
county region with an elderly
population in Highlands,
DeSoto and Hardee counties.
Despite an average student
age of 30, he said 81 percent
of graduating seniors from
the five high schools served
by SFCC, who go to college,
go to SFCC first.
"That's one of the higher
percentages in the state,"
Stephens noted. "It's great
that this is their college of
first choice."
For those interested in
learning more about the col-
lege but couldn't attend the
open house, Stephens
extended an open invitation
to take a tour, visit the muse-
um or browse the library.
"Come have lunch with
us," he said. "This is your
campus."


human being had lost his or her
sense of self.
Churches, and their congre-
gations, are in a perfect place to
reach out to the people and fam-
ilies affected, Langham said.
He hopes the seminar will
inspire greater engagement.
More than 4,000 families are
touched by Alzheimer's disease
in Highlands County alone.
An R.S.V.P. is requested.
Call Langham at 402-1066 by
close of business Tuesday.
The seminar will be from
8:30 to 11:45 a.m. Thursday at
the Good Shepherd Hospice
Sun Room, 3003 Herring Ave.,
Sebring. That is off Memorial
Drive, next to the Comcast
Cable offices.

TWFFIN'. iT

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


One tale of a

twisted dog

First of all, there is nothing
cute about selling hot dogs.
I say that only because
Deanne Hubbard, who sells
hot dogs (and lots of other
things) outside The Home
Depot, does so out of the
cutest little trailer you ever
saw.
s Everything is in miniature it
seems, and tucked neatly into
place.
In fact, this trailer is so
small Hubbard calls it her
"efficient little box."
Everything has a particular use
and place; there isn't an inch
wasted anywhere.
The trailer is just as nifty
outside. It has a 1950s style
profile, which is enhanced by
the white paint job and the
blue and red lettering.
Under a blazing sun the lit-
tle trailer seems dressed for a
party;: a slice of Americana,
held over from another era.
To complete the ambiance
Hubbard plays cool jazz and
lots of Frank Sinatra, and there
is a picnic table off to one side
where customers may sit and
eat. .
With its festive trimmings,
al fresco senin2. and resort
twnri type atmosphere, the
Twisted Dog is pure fun and
play.

SEBRING Deanne Hubbard is one of those peo-
ple who can make you dizzy.
She is a core of swirling energy who moves for-

sits still.' She is almost always smiling. Keeping up
with her requires concentration and effort.
But that's just the physical part, a matter of motion
only.
Add thought and communication and Hubbard is
even harder to keep up with her.
She began life in Missoula, Mont. and graduated
from the University of Montana with a bachelor's
degree in sociology and psychology.
For an adventure, she and her mother moved to
Alaska. Hubbard worked for three years on the
pipeline as an administrative assistant and then
owned and operated her own florist shop in
Anchorage for 13 years.
Wanting a change, she moved to the Florida Keys,
settling in Marathon, owning and operating her own
landscaping business there. She did that for five years,
until the Keys became too crowded and the hurricane
seasons too disruptive. Then Hubbard began looking
at other parts of the state and considering other adven-
tures.
She had passed through the Lake Placid area on
vacations and had liked what she'd seen, so she sold
her business, bought a house on a lake and moved
north.
Hubbard had been, thinking about tending bar for
her next career, but the idea of dealing with some of
the intoxicated people and breathing in secondhand
smoke helped her change her mind.
It wasn't until she pulled into The Home Depot's
parking lot, on her way to shopping in the store, that
she saw the festive little trailer, qua hot dog stand,
nestled next to the lawn mowers. It had a for sale
hanging on it, and the minute Hubbard saw it she was
sold.
In fact, she said, she had been thinking that a hot
dog cart might be a great way to make a living for
some time.-Stumbling into an opportunity like that
seemed heaven sent.
Seeing the for sale sign at 1 p.m., she owned the
trailer by 3 1.m.
What shebotght turned out to be a lot more work
than 'he .siK'ipaed. bu cith.1 is parilh" due f o dte ..:.
amount of preparation she puts into her food.Just


CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEYINews-Sun
Deanna Hubbard has owned and operated the Twisted Dog, hot dog stand for about three years. She can operate
because she is in Highlands County, and has a cover over her roof. Located in the parking lot, by the exit, she pays
rent to The Home Depot. Hubbard said the cities don't let hot dog vendors set up within city limits.


about everything, she said, is homemade and made
from scratch like the lemonade and sweet iced tea,
and the beanless chili sauce.
She pays rent for the space, has to maintain $1 mil-
lion worth of liability insurance, and is responsible for
keeping the area clean. She needed to get a food han-
dler's certificate.
,... Hubbard %a, reluciani to-,ntaa numnber,-hiui did sa\
'she makes a "nice, middle class ljJnI' ""


However, she works seven days a week to make
that happen, and more than the 40 hours she is open
during the week.
Something always needs to be done, she said. And
she is always cleaning something. The only reason she
is successful, she said, is that she "can multi-task like
crazy, and (isq very detail oriented."

enjoy.
But. Working there is some-
thing else again.
It turns out it takes a lot of
sweat and brawn, and just hard
work, to create that cute,
whimsical, purely enjoyable
snapshot of vintage America.
For one thing there is no air-
conditioning. It has gotten as
hot as 115 degrees inside. This
is work that is literally done by
the sweat of one's brow.
As if that weren't enough,
until very recently, Hubbard
had to haul her own water,
every drop of it. She still has to
haul her white water out.
And of course, she has to
haul all her supplies in, and
store them for quick access.
That isn't easy given the lack
of space.
She said she has to prepare
all the food herself from
scratch because the only way
she can compete with the
national chains is by providing
a fresher product with better
service. She is especially proud
of her fresh, hand-cut french
fries, and her pork tenderloin
sandwiches.
Take a minute to consider
just how much fasi-food com-
petition there is along U.S. 27,
and remember there are more
than one of some of these fran-
chises: MNlcDonald's, Burger
King, Checkers, Taco Bell,
Kentuck. Fried Chicken.
Arby's, Wendy's, Captain D's.
Dairy Queen and Quizno's.
Despite the hard xwork
Hubbard's eyes t\minkle all the
time As ferocious a cleaner
and dedicated a cook and vigi-
lant a business manager as she
is, Hubbard lives and breathes
to play % ith her customers. She
laughs often and openIN and
listens closely. She saNs things
that would d be insulting coming
from someone else, and gets a
laugh doing it.
She kept mn job simple -
preparing the food orders cor-
rectls. as quickly as possible.

time keeping up.

trailer tucking elbows in

to carefully slide by each other,
especially when holding some-
thing hot.
But I didn't know where
anything was either, and I was
way too particular. I handled
the hot dog tongs as if they
were surgical instruments, for.
example, and the hot dogs like
donated kidneys.
It turns out Hubbard excels
at multi-tasking. Me, not so
much.
She'd whip a hot roll out of

SSAMPLE


BALLOT


Dear Registered Voter,
This is a sample of the Optical Scan Paper Ballot that will be used for the November 7, 2006
General Election. When you vote on an Optical Scan Paper Ballot, you are actually filling in
(darkening) an oval on a paper ballot. The Golden Rule when voting an Optical Scan Paper
, Ballot is:

"COMPLETELY FILL IN THE OVAL".


Please remember this Golden Rule and follow it exactly. You will be furnished a marking
device at the voting location.


Mark this ballot and take it with you to use as a guide when you go to vote. This will save
you a lot of time in the polling room. ,

We will also have a Touch Screen Voting System at each precinct which will be primarily for
the disabled voter, and workers will be available to instruct you on the use of either system.
Other points of interest that voters need to be aware of:

1) EARLY VOTING: Early Voting will be conducted between the hours of 8:00 a.m.
and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. beginning on October 23rd and ending November
4th, at the following locations:
Highlands County Government Center, 600 South Commerce Avenue in Sebring


Avon Park Public Library. 100 North Museum Ave, Avon Park

Lake Placid Public Library, 47 Park Drive, Lake Placid.


This is your chance to get it done early and avoid
possible lines at the polling places.


y llaicepse at the larger precincts such as 17. 19 & 25.


NOTE: It doesn't matter where you live in the County, you may go to any Early Voting
site to cast your ballot.


2) VOTING ON ELECTION DAY: If you are voting at the polling place on
Election Day, you must vote in the precinct in which you live. Polling places will be open
from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. This is a countywide election, therefore all polling places will be
open and all qualified registered Highlands County voters will be allowed to vote.


3) POLLING LOCATIONS: Be sure to check your voter card to see which pre-
cinct you live in. Then compare the number of the precinct on the card to the Precinct List in
this ad to be sure that you-report-to the correct voting location to-vdte. If you do not have your
cird~orif youihvi.e an, questions, please call the Elections Office for assistance. "

SPECIAL NOTE: Voters in precincts 4A and 16A will go to your normal location
to vote (see list of precincts). You will be issued a ballot with the Avon Park City
Election on it since you do live inside the City Limits.

Voters living in Precincts 15 and 15S that previously voted at the Highlands
County Agri-Civic Center will now vote at the Restoration Center, 8475 Sparta
Rd, Sebring. Located at the intersection of S.R. 66 and Sparta Rd.

4) VOTER REGISTRATION AND ADDRESS CHANGES:
To vote in this General Election, you must have been a qualified registered voter in Florida by
October 10, 2006. If you were already registered in Florida prior to October 10, 2006 and you
moved to Highlands County from another Florida County or you moved within Highlands
County from one address to another, you will be allowed to change your address and vote. If
you moved to Highlands County from another State and did not register in Highlands County
by October 10, 2006. you will not be allowed to vote in this election.
5) ID REQUIRED: Remember, you must produce picture and
Signature I.D. when voting in Florida (a drivers license is the most common form of I.D.
used for this). Both the signature and photo may be on one I.D. or two separate ID's. The fol-
lowing forms of photo ID have been approved by the State:
Florida driver's license U.S. Passport
Employee Badge or ID Debit/Credit Card
*Military ID Student ID
Retirement Center ID Neighborhood Association ID
Public Assistance ID (Social Security or other Social Services)
Florida ID card issued by the Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
Buyer's club ID card (such as Costco's, Sam's Club or Price Club).
If you cannot produce picture and signature ID, you will be required under Florida Law
to vote a Provisional Ballot.

6) REQUEST FROM THE SUPERVISOR: If you are a person that is able
to go to the polls at any time of the day, it is very helpful if you try to schedule your voting
during slack periods of the day. These times are usually between 10:00 and 11:30 a.m. and
2:00 to 4:30 p.m.

7) WHAT YOU WILL BE ALLOWED TO VOTE ON: All registered
voters will be allowed to vote on every race and issue on this ballot,

Aflhe State Constitution, whether proposed

OIN I've been hearing things late-
ly. These are not the normal
things I hear, such as my beagle
Perky barking at anything that's
approaching the house from a
one-mile radius, or James
screaming in frustration as he
tries to beat a video game.
What I've been hearing is
that there are a number of angry
voters out there. They are so
angry, they are going to sit
home to "teach them a lesson."
"Them" are the Republicans,
who have been a major disap-
pointment to a number of peo-
ple who have supported them. I.
am.one of those people;
Part .f it is the whole Mark
Foley situation, which was
more than a disappointment it
was an outrage. I am one of
those who felt betrayed when I
learned what he had done. I am
glad he had the good sense to
leave if he hadn't I would've
been at the front of the line call-
ing for his ouster.;
And this is not the first time-
I've been disappointed %w ith the

The quality of the air we

I am. at the point to where
I've given serious thought to
changing my party affiliation.
Not to the Democratic Party -
as long as they turn their noses

I would return to my first ever

Now I'm not
LOOK just addressing
ticked off
Ware Republicans. I am
talking to anyone
who is eligible to
vote and is not planning on
doing so. You know who you
are: You are properly registered
to vote. You have an idea of
what's going on. You know
what you want for your country
and who you want to be a part
of it.
But for some reason or
another, you ignore Election
Day. The polls will be open for:
12 hours on Nov. 7. Is there not
a small period of time in those
12 hours you can't get down to
your polling place and cast your.
vote?
Or. if like me. you w ill not be
able to %ote on No%. 7, is there
no time between now and then
you could run. down to the
Supervisor of Elections Office
and vote? Joe Campbell and
company are nice. polite people
and they don't bite.


Maybe you think your vote
doesn't matter. Maybe you are
fed up with business as usual.
Maybe you think not voting
will accomplish something.
Here's the thing. Non-votes
are not counted for anything.
Non-votes don't change any-
thing. All it means is that you
have surrendered your chance
to shape the government that
rules you. And it means (not to
be rude) that you deserve what
you get for a government when
you abandon your responsibili-
ty to vote for the person or per-
sons you think will do the best
job. And the government you
deserve under those conditions
is usually not a good one.

County citizens have been
ignored and it is my under-
standing that the proposal came
before the Glades County com-
missioners as an "add-on" to a
published agenda that did not
include the F P. & L. proposal.
Whether this is a violation of
the state Sunshine La%% is yet to
be determined.


This proposal is in its early
stages and it is hoped that
reporters from our Highlands
County newspapers will inves-
tigate and let the people of
Highlands Counti know what
is going on "next door."

As a licensed mental health
counselor in Highlands County,
hardly a week goes by that I
don't hear someone say, "WhyI1
can't they do something about
this? The Baker Act system and
the mental health/substance
abuse services for the entire
state of Florida are a mess."
There have been. several
groups of providers who ha'e
been meeting at the local level,
around our state for a couple of
years discussing the problems.
and have agreed that changes
are needed .and have a fairly
clear idea of where the needs
should be. The frustration ema-
nating from some of those
involved is summed up with,
"All we do is talk about it, and
nothing changes." This is also
the mantra of some mental
health consumers and advo-
cates.
I have chosen to write this
series of articles (to appear in
coming issues on the News-Sun
on its Wednesday health pages)
to give hope to those in our area
who have loved ones with men-
tal health issues, and those w ho
are consumers of these services.


Over the next several
months we will dis-
cuss current issues
and legislative meas-
ures so that you will
be better informed of B ,
the progress. -"
One of the most
hopeful groups advo-
cating for change in
the mental health and MIND I
substance abuse sys-
tern is Partners In Charlee
Crisis. It began in
1998 as a local coali-
tion of advocates in Orange
County and soon became a
statewide organization. It is
now the model used in several
states. The state of Washington
is currently in the process of
formulating a nationwide
organization.
Florida Partners in Crisis
include judges, law enforce-
ment and correctional officers,
prosecutors and public defend-
ers, service providers, hospital
administrators and therapists,
housing and homeless alliances,
consumers and advocates. Why
the law enforcement and judi-
cial interest? Because the result


MASTERS

fn Stroup


of a malfunctioning
mental health and
substance abuse,
treatment system is
housing those with
mental illness and
substance abuse in
the local jails.
. How did that hap-
pen? President John
F. Kennedy first pro-
posed closing the
state and federal run
mental institutions


and "insane asylums"
because of the inhuman and
abuse that was perpetuated
there. Also the advancement of
medical science provided ps\-
chotropic medication that
allowed individuals to live
independently and function
fairly well, so long as they took
the medicine. Instead of institu-
tions and asylums, we needed.
outpatient clinics to provide and
monitor those taking the med-
ication. We also needed inpa-
tient units in hospitals to help
stabilize those individuals
whose medication "wasn't.
working" and those who had
gone off their medicine.


Along with this came
changes in the law to prohibit
incarcerating 'someone against
their will if they had not com-
mitted a crime. Under the "old
system" a person could be insti-
tutionalized for years because
of their mental illness. In
Florida, the Baker Act was initi-
ated by State Representative
Baker to protect her son and
anyone else %who had a mental
illness from being held against
their w ill for longer than 72
hours. The Baker Act is still in
effect and has been updated a
couple of times, and is current-
ly being looked at for addition-
al revisions.
There is a problem with how
our system works in real life.
Every individual has the right to
refuse medical services. Some
people feel they don't need it,
Others have a religious convic-
tion that doesn't accept medical
attention, and still others
believe in a different form of
healing such as herbal or an
alternative medicine. Having a
choice is part of the freedom we
enjoy living in America.

MENTAL
Continued from 22A
While some people choose
not to take psychotropic med-
ication others can't afford to
purchase their medication.
Whatever the reason, some peo-
ple cannot function well in soci-
ety without this medication due
to their illness, so they end up
behaving in such a way that
they attract the attention of law
enforcement. Some individuals
actually commit a crime, not
because they are intent on
breaking the law, but because
they hear voices or have
impulses they cannot control.
One of the programs spon-
sored and advocated by
Partners In Crisis is the Crisis
Intervention Training (CIT) for
law enforcement officials. This
is a 40-hour program that teach-
es law enforcement officers
how to differentiate those who
are breaking the law because of
a mental illness from those who
have other motivations, and
how to approach/deal with
them.
As of now there are approxi-
mately 90 Polk County law
enforcement individuals who
have completed this training.
Highlands County has trained
about 70 individuals in the 16-
hour course.
One of the biggest obstacles
to this training is funding not
for the course but for the
replacement of the individual
officers who have been pulled
off the road to take advantage
of this education.
Many counties have a Mental
Health Court and/or a Drug
Court. There is a great deal of
interest in both of these courts
in our 10th Judicial Circuit, and
a potential to see one or both in
effect sometime in 2007. This
will facilitate getting the special
help needed for those with men-

tal health and/or substance
abuse issues.
Currently both Highlands
County and Polk County have
the Jail Assisted Substance
Abuse program in place. JASA
treatment has a high success
rate and takes advantage of
helping those who are in the
controlled environment of the
county jail to begin their treat-
ment to be drug free.

... 'jail diver-

sion' means ...

get services in

our outpatient

clinics, not jail.

In August we had two repre-
sentatives from Tallahassee
Department of Children and
Families Program Office here
in Sebring at an open meeting
asking for information from
consumers, advocates, law
enforcement, service providers,
and others, on how best to meet
the local needs of mental health
and substance abuse con-
sumers. There was some frus-
tration aired at this forum about
"just so much rhetoric" -
repeating the mantra that legis-
lation has to be implemented to
facilitate funding/providing
more services.
What are we doing about it?
Florida Partners In Crisis is
requesting the Florida
Legislature to fund $25 million
for local community collabora-
tions to assist in planning,
developing and implementing
local programs that focus \,on
mental health and substance
abuse for adults and children.
What can you do about it?
This is a wonderful opportunity
to each and every one of you to

for office from county com-
missioner to the governor -
asking them to put mental
health and substance abuse
services on the top of their leg-
islative priority list.
One vote can alter an election
and we, the citizens, are the
ones who elect our legislative
representatives and governor.
We need to tell every candidate
that "jail diversion" means
helping individuals with sub-
stance abuse and mental health
issues get services in our out-
patient clinics, not in the jail.
It means letting every candi-
date know that "re-entry pro-
grams" -are designed to help
transition an inmate back into
day-to-day living with mental
health services, affordable
housing, new coping skills and
a means of support so they
don't return to the activities that
landed them in jail. It's a way to
stop the revolving door in our

VA urges veterans to wear

medals as show of patriotic pride


General George GuES
Washington had it
right when he R.Jame
turned over the vic-
torious Continental
Army and said:
"This new nation owes these
men who procured our freedom
a debt of gratitude."
Our job at the Department of
Veterans Affairs is to fulfill that
debt of gratitude and we do it
well. But, there is even more we
can do as Americans, and that is
to honor and thank our veterans
and encourage them to be open-
ly proud of their service, sacri-
fice and accomplishment.
In that spirit of gratefulness,
VA has launched its Veterans
Pride initiative where wve are
asking American veterans to
proudly wear their military
medals and decorations on
Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
We hope they will also wear
them on Memorial Day and the
Fourth of July, and that it will
become a tradition in America.
Our goal is to inspire the
American people to recognize


(
s J


[ .OLUMN and honor the mili-
DOLUMN tary service of their
fellow citizens, and
Niholson to engender a
greater sense of
pride and satisfac-
tion on the part of the veterans
for what they did for our coun-
try. .
We are urging all veterans to
pin on their military medals and
ribbons on Veterans Day, espe-
cially when participating in fes-
tivities and parades, but also in
just going about their regular
activities of that day.
The Veterans Pride initiative
shines a bright light on millions
of our fellow citizens who
answered the needs of our
; nation both in peace and in war.
Each veteran's medals tell a
story about their service. This
initiative will also help stimu-
late interest in our veterans'
service and sacrifice on the part
of their families, neighbors,
colleagues and fellow commu-
nity citizens. We hope to bring
our veterans' stories home to all
Americans this Veterans Day.


.The Department of Veterans
Affairs "Veterans Pride" cam-
paign Web site,
www. va.gov/veteranspride/,
describes the program and
offers important information
and guidance about how veter-
ans can be informed of the
medals they received and how
they can obtain medals earned
during their military service.

To America's veterans I say,
wear your medals over your
heart with pride this Veterans
Day and let your fellow citizens
know that you served.

Jim Nicholson, secretary of
Veterans Affairs, served eight
years on active duty as a para-
trooper and Ranger-qualified
Army officer, then 22 years in
the Army Reserve, retiring with
the rank of colonel. While serv-
ing in combat in Vietnam, he
earned the Bronze Star Medal,
Combat Infantryman Badge,
the Meritorious Service Medal,
Republic of Vietnam Cross of
Gallantry and two Air Medals.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

NEWS-STN SEBRING. FLA.


In a heartbeat
Recently I asked a young
man who had participated in
a short-term mission trip if
he %would go back. His
re-ponse. "'In a heartbeat."
That expression gave me
pause.
A heartbeat That's so
instantaneous while also
being steady, dependable
and life-giving. The heart is
also the seat of our emo-
tions and feelings.
That young niman had
expressed volumes in tha[
statement. He'd return
immediately if he could.
He'd be a steady, depend-
able %worker and bring life-
gi ing truth to those in
need. And he wouldn't
check his emotions and
feelings at the door
In looking at soine entries
in one of my old journals, I
discovered the term heart-
beat in descrlbilg2 x.
response to God's creation
on a actionn to the
Rockies
I w rote to God. "The
majesty of \our creation
onlx intensifies mi desire to
know y.ou more because 1
can hardly imagine the
magnificence ot the One
who created the mountains,
trees, rivers, lakes, stars and
everything else In each is
part of \our heartbeat and ii
rexerbeiates in mn ox\n
heart."
While reading that entry
it "as as it I \as standing
in the dery place that had
prompted such words.
God's fingerprints are on
everything \e see. His eyes
are upon ius. And his heart-
beat reverberates in hi- cic-
ation; but. not only those
things % e can see but \% ho
"c: e \ar e.
The young man %%ho had
said "In a heartbeat." spoke
of the children \w ho touched
his heart And isn't that the
deepest concern of God's
father-heart his children?
"I tell onu the truth.
unless you change and
become lke little children.
you \ill ne\er enter the
kingdom of heaven.
Therefore, w however hum-
bles himself like this child
is the greatest in the king-
dom of heaven," as seen in
NMatthele 18: 3-4. NIV
God created us in his
image. He loves us beyond
an\ lo\e we can imagine
and lives in the hearts of
believers gi mig life and
meaning to e erN heartbeat.
In a heartbeat, lie left
heaven to come to earth and
begin life as an infant -
lust like we do. In a heart-
beat. he identified \ with our
struggles as sinful creatures
vet without sin. In a
heartbeat, he sacrificed him-
self and died on the cioss to
conquer death so that all
\ho believe ill ne\er taste
eternal separation from him.
In a heartbeat, he rose from
the dead to secure eternal
life for us. And. in a heart-
beat. he w\ ill return for all
believers and e\entuallk set
up his kingdom on earth.
B\ abiding in him like
a branch attached to the
vine we will be motixat-
ed bx his heartbeat pulsat-
ing within us. Selah

not just a place for people to meet each other, but a

place to meet the Lord Jesus Christ and grow in faith

"We are amazed at all the Loid has pioe ided for
us." Buxbaum said. "'And it is almost a weekly occur-

church."

Pho:.-, h, IAN NMiROPN-.-S.'-un
Pastor Reinhold Bu\baum demonstrates a point in his
message 'ith a broom.

He had een considered lea% ing the area and filling
a pulpit elsewhere. But as he investigated this possi-
bili[t. he didn't have an. leading whatsoeer. It
became very clear that they were to stay in Sebring
and begin a new church
"One night I a woke -% ith the thought 'Call it The
Wa\ and I knew in mi heart the Lord confirmation
to mo\e forward," Bu\bauinm aid.
In John 14: 6. N1\. Jesus saN s. "I am the vaN and
the truth and the life No one comes to the Father
except through me."
Buxbaum's lo'e for people demonstrates itself in
his joy of sharing his faith and shox\ing them the way.
truth and life. His delightful sense of humor shows up
in his sermons that are always fiesh with illustrations
foi practical application.
S"I ant to see ever individual and fanulx know the
Loid and mature in him." he said
.ci tour ,horr month, the chw.l i has ali estab-
lished leadership team of o eiseets, a worship team
that leads the music each Sunday and man\ commit-
ted helper, v. ho work behind the scenes Sunda,
school classes use Abeka curriculum for the children
and young people %while the adults are study ng the
important topic of know ing what they belie- e and
why they believe.
Taking Jesus, Great Comnmission seriously to eo
into all the world and preach the gospel and make dis-
ciples. a missions program %\as established itght from
the start. They support Rob and Christine Heco\ and
family who are going to Japan to minister through
Malachi Children's Ministr., a joint venture of Child
Evangelism Fellow ship and Cadence International
reaching out to the children of American military per-
sonnel
The local m nisnies, include Heartland Christian
School, a pri\ ate school \ith classes from preschool
through high school: and Little Lambs Inc., a ministry
that reaches out to prisoners through intense Bible
correspondence courses as well as the community
\\ilh recover\, boundary and counseling classes.
Honeycomb Gift Basket ministry is a signature
mirustry of The \Wa\. It is another local outreach
designed to encourage and %welcomne ne\'% l married
couples in Highlands County. But, it has many arms
and has already been an encouragement to twovo w i\es
whose husbands are in Iraq. and. %will be used to com-
fort and bring hope as needs arise.
Its name is derived from Psalm 20:10. which say s
that God's Word is sweeter than hone,. than honey
from the comb. Each basket always contains honex
and a Bible along with other appropriate items accord-
ing to its particular purpose.
The Way places high priority on fellow ship witLh
one another. Refreshments are available before and
after each service and socials are taking place and
being planned.
"We are one big family worshipping God together
and helping each other," Buxbaum said. "We want to
be there for each other and be know n as a loving and
caring church."

Future v/i/on
"Big" is the word Buxbaum used to describe his
vision. Not indicating a huge building project. Rather
the vision to touch lies for eternity.
He cited the statistics that there are 100.000 people
in Highlands County and 30,000 go to church
"That leaves 70,000 not attending church for us to
reach out to." he said. "That's huge.'
There are a lot of churches in Sebring and
Buxbaum wants The Way to hae a part in presenting
hope to Highlands County.
"It's mi desire that we be effective witnessess and
effective in ministry, which translates to hands-on
mininstr\ being there for people and touching their
lives at the point of their need."
One example of how The Wa\ church tanily is
doing this already is seen in theil "Needs Board."
This simple board is available foi people in the
congregation t,, make others aw are ot a need. For
example, husbands/fathers iIn the military need for a
ride to church: ill and in need of encotracnieiit The
list is as diverse as the congregation.
Responses niay be a simple card: pro' ision of a
meal; transportation, a listening ear or providing a
shoulder to cry on.
Small groups in homes % ill start soon creating e'.en

smaller circles of belonging
where the Bible will be studied
and joys as well as sorrows
shared.
Couples, ministry is dear to
Buxbaum's. heart and special
classes will focus on building
up marriages and families.
A longer-term vision is for a
coffee house where people can
gather and have fellowship,
some wholesome
activities/entertainment and
reach out to the community.

4 shepherd's heart
Personally, Buxbaum sees
himself as a shepherd who
wants to stay connected to the
flock always approachable,
humbly leading as one who is
as in need of God's grace as
anyone in the congregation. He
wants to be a teacher, encour-
ager one who helps people
to be ready to receive what he
has to share being drawn to


Pastor Reinhold Buxbaum

God and his fold.
"Love is the answer,"
Buxbaum said. "Love that is
going to reach from me as a
pastor to contagiously affect
ithe congregation. I want to
model that in my personal and
public life. If we can be that
kind of loving church, we'll be
an attractive church giving
all who enter a sense of
belonging."

Show appreciation to Friends of the Library


How, many friends do you
have? How many freely give
you money? How many spend
hours of their time so that you
can prosper? It's time to say a
big thank you to the Friends of
the Avon Park, Lake Placid and
Sebring libraries. Without their
support, our libraries would be
open fewer hours, and have
fewer materials and furniture.
They have given us the means
to purchase new furniture,
audio-visual materials, best-
sellers, and generously given
hours of time helping at the
check-out areas, mending
items,, shelving library materi-
als, shelf-reading, cleaning
everything from dirty book cov-
ers to dusty computer monitors,
and running book sales both in
and out of the libraries.
Sebring's Friends have a beauti-
ful little used bookstore just off
the Circle at 117 E. Center Ave.
where our weeded books and
unneeded donations are taken


for resale. Every Friends organ-
ization is comprised of men and
women who know that a thriv-.
ing community needs an up-to-
date library. Our Friends organ-
izations have given the libraries
more than $150,000 over the
years, and thousands of hours of
volunteer time. What would we
do -without them? This week is
National Friends of the Library
Week and no organization could
be more worthy of recognition
and praise. Thank a Friend this
week.
Did you know that October is
Computer Learning Month?
Why not take advantage of our
free computer classes offered at
every .Heartland Library
Cooperative library. Avon
,Park's classes are each
Wednesday, Lake Placid's
classes, are each Tuesday,
Sebring's classes .are Fridays
and late Tuesday afternoons.
You can even travel to DeSoto
County Library for Monday


classes, and
Thursday you'll find
our computer trainer
Gabrielle Turner at
Okeechobee County
Library. Each library
keeps its own sched-
ule of classes, so call
the one nearest you. gI I
We offer Basic
Computers (with the LIBRAR
premise that you
know nothing about Can
c o m p u t e r s ) Hess
Advanced Computers
(practical help learn-
ing more about your computer),
PAC (training to use our public
access computers), Email
(there's more to it than you
would think), Internet (how to
protect, yourself while you
enjoy its benefits), and
Microsoft Word (a big help with
this great feature). Classes are
limited to the 11 laptop comput-
ers in our mobile computer lab,
so call or stop in and sign up for


rY
se
i-


one or more of these
year-round classes.
Have you looked
at our newly
revamped Web page
at www.myhlc.org?
This colorful Web
page will also help
you to decide what to
read or listen to next,
Y LINES plus so much more.
Sebring Librarian
olyn Michael Pate
link designed the page
with your needs in
mind, but. if some-
thing more would be helpful, let
Michael know.
Pre-registration is now going
on for our Friday, Nov. 17,
lock-in for teens ages 13-18 at
Sebring Library. Electronic
..game systems, food, and, of
course, gaining new skills, will
all be part of this lock-in, from
6 p.m. to 6 a.m. The doors will
open, at 6 p.m. and lock at 9
p.m. Our maximum number to


participate is 50, so get yourself
pre-registered by stopping in or
calling Sebring Library, and
don't forget your sleeping bag.
The richness of October is
personified by the art of Anne
Watson. Our Sebring Library
display cases are filled with her
wonderful paintings, and per-
sonalized Christmas ornaments.
Perhaps someone you know
would like one. Our theme for
October is "Nature is a Living
Colorwheel" and the vertical
displays are the embodiment of
Matthew 6:28b-29,""See how


the lilies of the field grow. They
do not labor or spin. Yet I tell
you that not even Solomon in
all his splendor was dressed like
one of these."

Carolyn Hesselink is the admin-
istrative secretary of the
Highlands County Library
System. Library cards are
always free. For information,

Conservation district to stay active in November


As always, there has been a
lot going on in our office lately,
so today is another update to
inform you of some of the
things that might be of interest
to you.
We are going to have a very
large booth at the Civilian
Conservation Corps Festival at
Highlands Hammock State Park
on Saturday, Nov. 4. We'll be
handing out dozens of different
brochures related to all sorts of
environmental and agricultural
topics, as well as numerous col-
oring and activity books, and
many novelty items for chil-
dren. We'll also have posters
available for those bare walls.
Freddy the Alligator from the
South Florida Water
Management District will also
be there to greet children and
hand out goodies. So come see
us.
The Annual Lakewatch vol-
unteer appreciation barbecue
picnic will take place from 1-4
p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5, at Windy
Point Park on Lake Istokpoga.
These volunteers are a valuable
asset to Highlands County. The
water quality information on
more than 40 of Highlands
County's public and private
lakes would not be available
without the help of the volun-


teers. Highlands County Lake
Association will be hosting the
picnic. An exhibit of aquatic
plants and invertebrates (bugs)
will be set up and if you have a
question you can bring along a
plant sample to be identified.
The picnic is also the perfect
time to discuss your water body
concerns, ask questions about
management issues, talk with
other Lakewatch folks, and find
out what's happening in gener-
al. If you are interested in
becoming a volunteer, call our
office at 402-6545 for more
information.
Also in November, we will
be participating in Ag Venture.
This is the first-year we have-
been invited to participate and
we are very excited. We will be
presenting our Enviroscape
Model to demonstrate. the
effects pollution has on our
lakes, rivers, and streams. The
plastic model features a land-
scape that includes agricultural,
urban, and natural areas.
Pollution and runoff are visual-
ly apparent when rain falling
over the landscape top carries
soil (cocoa ., chemical (colored
drink mixes) and oil (cocoa and
water mixture) through the
watershed to the lake on the
model. We will also be dis-


cussing the water
cycle. Each student
will make their own
wristband with dif-
ferent colored beads
that each represent a
portion of the water
cycle: yellow for
solar energy, clear
for evaporation,
green for transpira-
tion, white for con-
densation, blue for
precipitation, and
brown for percola-
tion.

Conservation District is offer-
ing a cost-share program fund-
ed through the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services. This pro-
gram will reimburse flatwood
citrus producers and/or caretak-
ers for part of the cost of pur-
chasing variable rate technolo-
gy equipment that applies fertil-
izer more accurately, further
reducing the nitrates and saving
producers mone\. Call our


office at 402-6545 for
more information.
There was a
change in our office
staff recently. There
was a vacancy when
Eric Harper, Natural
R e s o u r c e
Conservation Service
soil conservation
technician, trans-
ferred to South
Carolina in May. The
Natural Resources
Conservation Service
has hired a new
employee (myself)
under the Career


Intern Program. I am no longer
the natural resources specialist,
however I will continue educa-
tional outreach, including this.
column. The new natural
resources specialist will take
over the column when the posi-
tion is filled.
The field sampling portion of
an intensive investigation of
phosphorus sources .to Lake
Istokpoga has been completed
and the data has been processed


and analyzed. The investigation
is being funded through a grant
from SFWMD. Lakes manager
Clell Ford is currently writing
the report and the final report is
expected to be available in early
December.
The Lakes Program staff
continued monthly sample col-
lection from Lake Blue, which
has shown improved water
quality conditions since May,
likely due to the lack of rainfall
and the normal warming of the
lake surface waters. Levels of
dissolved nutrients, most
notably ammonia-nitrogen,
increased in deep water
throughout the summer. These
nutrients are trapped in deeper
water, but may be mixed back
to the surface this fall and Win-
ter when water temperatures
cool and the nutrients are mixed


back to the surface; the winter
algae blooms seen the last cou-
ple of years are likely to reoccur
next winter. Staff will begin a
watershed-wide investigation in
the next month that will defini-
tively identify the source of
nutrients and restoration meas-
ures for the lake.
Lakes Program staff have
secured cooperative funding
from SWFWMD for watershed-
wide investigations of Carter,
Creek and Lake Placid (Childs).

wij l I Plant sorting: To keep or not to keep
Ef.^ oq f^^ A&&^^^. ^ J I


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 show
good form and are growing in
appropriate locations. Prune
overgrown shrubs and trees as
pruning is less costly than
replacement..
Retain those trees with long
life spans such as live oak
(Quercus virginiana), sweet
gum (Liquidambar styraciflua)
and bald cypress (Taxodium
distichum). Consider taking out
short lifespan trees such as lau-
rel oak, water oak, silver maple
and cherry laurel. Try to save
clusters of trees and shrubs and
ground cover growing 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 pre-
vent access for home
maintenance. Also,
thin out or remove
tightly spaced plants as
they are more prone to
disease and stress.


-,
- .-



GROWING
SusonN


Remove plants under ,.
eaves as they may not Ed.
receive adequate rain-
fall and may be dam-
aged by rainfall, dripping from
the roof edge.
If you have a new home site,
consider removing any trees or
shrubs that have excess soil
from construction deposited
over their root zone as they will
eventually 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.


Ayen


Even though this does
not protect the entire
root system, it will
improve your tree's
odds of survival.
Once you have sort-
ed out those trees and
shrubs you wish to
keep do a landscape
drawing incorporating
the existing items with
the new plants you will
be adding to your yard.
Try to use native trees
and shrubs as much as
possible to have a


more carefree yard and cut back
on water and pesticide usage.
Keep grass area to a minimum
and for a more carefree lawn
use Bahiagrass.
Ed Ayen, a Master Gardener,
is available to address clubs
and associations. For details,

Extension Service office at 402-

FORT MYERS A rare play helped
the Lake Placid football team accom-
plish a rare feat.
The Green Dragons hate their first
back-to-back %ins since 1990 after
spoiling homecoming for Fort MNIers
Bishop Verot on Friday w ith a 26-21 ic-
tor. The back-and-forth Dismrict 2A-5
clash of st,,les proved tougher than a 36-
21 v. in Oct. 13 against Celebration.
Bishop \erot 11-7, 0-2 in the district
had scored 14 unanswered points and led
21-14 when momentum shifted on a
botched snap to punter Butch Moore
with 3:59 to go in the third quarter.
The ball sailed oxer his head on
fourth-and-5 at the Viking 33. and


Moore was barely able to kick it
off the side of his foot after he
picked it up near the goal line.
The punt deflected off a Lake
Placid player and into the hands
of Bishop Verot senior Frank
Cossentino.
The croxd and the Vikings
thought they had recovered a
fumble, but because the ball did
not make it back to the line of
scnmmage. the Green Dragons

The Lake Placid Green Dragons celebrate after winning their second straight District 10-3A volley-
ball championship Thursday night in Frostproof. The Dragons (16-2) will host Melbourne Central'.

Bishop Verot 22, setting up the offense for the
winning drive. .
The game was the first this season played
without water, breaks that the FHSAA makes
mandatory through the second Week in October.,
The summerlike heat and humidity took its toll,
particularly on several Green Dragons who were
battling a stomach flu. Maddo\ said.
Junior Rashaad Brol\n nussed his second
straight game with a knee injury.

said. .
Senior O.J. Williams left the game with a
minor injury that won't cause him to miss, any.
time, Maddox said, but didn't fail to make an
impression in his limited capacity Friday.


DEVILS
* Continued from l1
* Despite their second straight
* loss, the Devils still have pla.-
* off hopes. A win over arch-rival
* Sebring- Friday night would
c dlinch a spot in the postseason.
Avon Park isn't out of it ~%ith a
loss, either, because even in that
situationn a Hardee win over
* DeSoto would mean a three-
way tie for second between the
Deviks. Sebring and DeSoio.
Making the playoffs 'would
go a long a. toward erasing
the .sting of Friday night's
improbable loss.
The Devils were their own
worst enemy Friday night, as
two interceptions and a two
fumbles helped 'the Marauders
score 14 points.
The Devils were iup 7-0 after

in'the second quarter before reversing field and
heading 47 yards down the left side of the field
for a touchdown with 9:20 to play in the first half
"It's all vision," he said.
Williams said he dove into the end zone
because he thought there were defender right
behind him. There weren't. any,, and,he received
an unsportsmanlike penalty that forced Hill to
attempt a 35-yard extra point that failed.
The Green Dragons made up for it afterr their
next score, a 1-yard plunge by quarterback
Conlin Veley with 26 seconds to go in the first
half. Ve1e caught the tuo-point con\ertsion pass
from George Rasmusseri on a swinging gate pla\
that gave Lake Placid a 14-7 lead.
The win keeps hope of .i .500 sea..n ali\e for
the Green Dragons, who ha.i\e their home finale
