HIGHLANDS COUNTY'S HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER SINCE 1927

SUNDAY November 19, 2006


a clean-up
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

AVON PARK Willie Jenkins, a
member of the Avon Park Southside
Community Redevelopment
Agency. is fed up and out of
patience.
As far as he is concerned the CSX
railroad is an unfriendly neighbor.
unlikely to change.
"Just because the railroad says it
\\ill do something, doesn't mean
that any thing ill happen." he said.
He \as referring to the on-going
effort the city is making to pressure
the railroad into cleaning its right of
\was through town. an effort that
has been under way for at least two
y ears.
Jenkins took the Nei\s-Stun on a
recent tour around the south side of
the city. pointing out areas \here
stands of Brazilian pepper trees and
other invasive plants ha'e gro\ n 20
or 30 feet high. and so close togeth-
er a person cannot walk among
them.
The dense thickets have become
home to all manner of small ani-
mals. including raccoons, possums.
rodents and snakes.
"It is a major health problem and
nuisance." Jenkins said, as he stood
on railroad property by South
Verona Street, across the road from
the pre-school operated by the
Redlands Christian Migrant
Association.
Grass. gro\ ing up the steep grade
to\ ard the rail bed. rose higher than
his waist and bushes towered o'er
his head blocking any view of the
track;
"It seems to me CSX would care
enough about their public relations
policy to want to clean it up," he
said.
He is especially upset because he
feels the railroad is taking better
care of its downtown property and
that on the north side of Main Street.
And he sees the company as drag-
ging its collective feet.
Captain Donald Simmons. Avon


CHRISTOPHER TLUFFLEY-Neu -Sun
Willie Jenkins. a member of the Avon Park Southside Communilt
Redevelopment Association, holds up an arm to demonstrate the height of the
%ieeds growing on CSX Railroad property. Behind him are thick clumps of
o\ergro\ n bushes and trees which have become havens for ermin.


Park's code enforcement officer,
agrees that the railroad has allowed
a dangerous and unhealthy condition
to build up but he says the rail-
road has made recent promises to
clean its property, which he feels are
in good faith.
What Jenkins sees as a lack of
action and good will, Simmons says
is a large bureaucracy gearing up to
take action.
For example. they had already
sent a crew to clean up an area


directly across the street from
Hopew ell Academy. he said. And
CSX sent Jeff Luthi. a property
management specialist, to tour the
railroad's property with him No\. 9.
That official arrived with a brush
clearing contractor whom he con-
sulted as they vent about the inspec-
tion.
Finally. Simmons said, the rail-
road had also already agreed to a
beefed-up maintenance schedule

Natural gas


pipeline could


be on its way

By MATT MURPHY
IN -ni.-S
SEBRING After raising a stink for more
than five years, Sebring Regional Airport may be
closer to getting its natural gas pipeline.
Because it is more efficient than fossil fuels
and often less expensive. many companies are
making the switch to natural gas. Like
Willingham, executive director, Sebring Regional
Airport. said.
"The benefit to the airport and the industrial
park is it's the last piece of missing infrastructure
that \\ill help us compete with other community
airports." he said.
Companies with operations at the airport's
industrial park have expressed their interest in it,
and the airport has been trying to fund a pipeline.
Willingham said a pipeline that originates at
Highlands Avenue near Highlands Regional
Medical Center and follows parts of U.S. 27.
Raley Road, U.S. 98 and Ha)y ood Taylor
Boulevard would cost about $1.4 million.
The airport secured a $695.000 Community
Development Block Grant to offset the cost.
Sebring Gas contributed $300,000 and paid for
engineering and permitting
The airport authority's Community
Redevelopment Agency agreed to provide
$100,000. payable during a six-year period.
They're still trying to find funding to co'er the
$300.000 balance.
The CRA should recoup its share via profits
from the pipeline, Willingham said.
"It's a good investment for the airport." he told
the Sebring Airport Authority board Thursday
Willingham "Hill ask the Highlands County
commissioners to participate. The Economic
Development Commission is applying for a Rural
Infrastructure Grant.
The airport board's consensus was that the
pipeline is necessary for the facility's continued
growth, though no agency was designated to
shoulder any shortfalls.
"Regardless, this is infrastructure the airport
needs to grow and develop," Willingham said.
He anticipates the project could begin as soon
as February\ and, with 90-120 turnaround, could
be completed by May.

SEBRING Thanksgiving
calories shouldn't pose a prob-
lem with three Christmas
parades coming up.
Avon Park leads the way
with its "I'll be home for
Christmas" parade featuring
members of Bravo Battery who
returned from a tour in Iraq just
in time for Halloween,
Thanksgiving and Christmas.
"They're going to be riding
in a Hummer out front," said
David Greenslade, executive
director of the Avon Park
Chamber of Commerce.
They'll be followed by more
troops mounted on the Army's
high mobility tactical truck. The
soldiers call it a "hemmit" and
use the trucks to haul the rock-
ets they shoot.
The parade begins at 7 p.m.
Monday, Nov. 27, and will fol-
low Main Street west from U.S.
27 to City Hall.
As with the other parades,
there will be about 100 entrants
with Santa Claus bringing up
the rear.
"I'll come out at 8 a.m. and
there will already be chairs
out," Greenslade said, dis-
cussing the best time to arrive.
"We get a really good crowd to
our parades."
But, most people begin arriv-
ing about:5 p.m. and the crowd
can be five to six people deep.
Bleachers will be set up:
across from The Hotel
Jacaranda, at the band stand and
a block east of the band stand.
The Avon Park High School


band, Key Club and the Avon
Park Project Graduation will
sell food for their respective
fund-raisers.
Comcast will televise the
parade live on Channel 4, with a
re-broadcast date to be
announced later.
Sara Pallone invites the com-
munity to "Cruise into
Christmas" with the Sebring
Christmas parade.
"We're going to have some
pretty interesting floats from
what I'm hearing," said
Pallone, who is employed by
the Greater Sebring Chamber of
Commerce and is treasurer of
the Heartland Young
Professionals.
The parade begins at 7 p.m.
Friday, Dec. 1, at Firemen's
Field. It'll motor north on South
Commerce Avenue to the Circle
(around which it'll flow coun-
terclockwise), then follow
North Ridgewood Drive to
Sebring Parkway.
Because it coincides with the
annual Sebring Fall Classic
Race at Sebring International
Raceway, participants of the
Sebring Classic Car Show will
drive their rides in the parade
- thus the "Cruise" theme.
Pallone recommends bring-
ing lawn chairs and arriving at
least 30 minutes early.
Kenilworth Lodge manager
Don Elwell will be master of
ceremonies for the parade from'
a spot near Firemen's Field.
The parade will be covered
by a local radio station and will
air live on Comcast cable, she
said.

Climbing their way to the top, Jarviel Hart, a fifth-grader, and
Kiana Vassell, a fourth-grader, soared with words when they
wrote their winning essays for Red Ribbon rWeek at Sun 'N
Lake Elementary School. The essay contest was sponsored by
the school's Parent Teacher Organization. The two students
each received a $50 savings bond.






















So many excellent essays were written by fourth- and fifth-
graders during the Red Ribbon Essay Contest, sponsored by
the PTO, that volunteer Jan Goodall personally sponsored two
additional prizes, awarded to Georges Sylla and Mattie Coe,
both in the fourth grade.

With cool weather and overcast skies Thursday, Kevin Farmer constructs the 'News-Sun' ginger bread
house Christmas float without baking in the sun, or the oven for that matter. Farmer was pressed into
service by his wife, Annmarie Jackson, who is employ ed in the newspaper's business office.


The Morning Kiwanis of
Sebring will sell hot dogs and
the chamber will provide free
hot apple cider at its office on
the Circle.
Hot cider may seem out of
place in Florida, where warm
weather is one reason for the
snowbird season.
"Every year, on the applica-
tion, people give suggestions
for ne\t \ear's theme," Colleen
Lee, Lake Placid Jaycees vice
president for community devel-
opment, said in explaining the
town's "A Florida Christmas"


theme.
What is a Florida Christmas?
"We leave that open to inter-
pretation," Lee said, suggesting
palm trees and tropical scenes
may be prevalent.
A .grand marshal for the
parade hasn't been determined
but an honorary grand marshal
was auctioned at the Lake
Placid Chamber. Banquet
recently, she said.
"Now they can view it from
Main Street," Lee said, explain-
ing that the route changes this
year.


The parade begins at 7 p.m.
Saturday, Dec. 9, at Dal Hall
Boulevard. It turns left on Main
Street and left again at Interlake
Boulevard.
Debbie Graves, of Allstar
Car Sales, will be master of cer-
emonies.
Lake Placid Project
Graduation will sell baked pota-
toes and toppings for $5 each.
Advance tickets can be pur-
chased at Happiness Farms, 705

Sebring CRA developing new, more

detailed design review guidelines


By MATT MURPHY
News-Sain
S'SEBRING With objectiv-
ity, specificity and conflict.
avoidance the goal, the Sebring
Community Redevelopment
Agency is reviewing the design
review process.
Projects were first subjected
to the design review in 2005
and changes are needed, Pete
Pollard, CRA executive direc-
tor, said.
"It's important that every-
body knows what the rules are,"
he said, explaining the current
process isn't specific enough.
"The board needs something
they can put in front' of them
and see where all of the design
issues are."
A detailed checklist is
designed to increase objectivity,
which should help applicants
and the board.

Chamber opens

gift program
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Eileen
May, chief executive officer of
the Greater Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce, said
the chamber will once again be
collecting new and unwrapped
gifts for the needy children of
Lake Placid.
Collection starts Nov. 28
through Dec. 15 at the
Chamber office. All items will
be donated to Manna Ministries
for distribution throughout our
community.


The former will receive
guidance on specific require-
ments and the latter will know
what criteria they have jurisdic-
tion to evaluate.
"It's difficult when you're
dealing with design issues to
take all the sibjectivity out of
the process," Pollard said. "And
we're trying to take out all that
we can."
The new process would
begin with an application for
concurrency development sub-
mitted to the city planner, who
estimates a development's
potential impact.
A yet-to-be formed technical
review committee will verify a
proposed development's feasi-
bility with Sebring's
Concurrency Management
System before the project can
be placed on the CRA's agenda


for design review.
If the board approves of the
design, it will issue a letter of
approval to the planning and
zoning board, which will
review any required' zoning
requests, future land'use issues
land subdivision or. site -plans
before forwarding its recom- -
mendation to the city council.
With the city's blessing, the
developer pulls the building
permit and begins construction,
which is monitored' by city
inspectors to ensure codes are
adhered to.
"We need to move now
toward finalizing that docu-
ment," Pollard said of the draft
checklist, which he also submit-
ted to the Sebring council. "Our
intent for all of this is to be as
specific as we can so we can
avoid conflicts."

Local developer breaks


ground on latest project


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Local
developer Coronado Custom
Homes has broken ground on
its latest project known as
Village Del Mar of Lake Placid.
This development is one of the
most exciting and unique resi-
dential developments to hit
Highlands County.
Village Del Mar is a 52-unit
Mediterranean style townhome
development on 6.6 acres of
land and faces one of the many
pristine lakes in Lake Placid
known as Lake Grassy, a 517-
acre natural sand bottom lake-
perfect for all water sports.
Both one- and two-story res-
idences are available and are
offered in both two- and three-
bedroom, 2.5-bath models.
Interior living areas range from
1,400-,1525 square feet, how-
ever, due to the incredible open
design and high ceilings, there
is a tremendous feeling of spa-
ciousness.
"Virtually all the one-story
units have been reserved for
quite some time," according to
the developer's marketing spe-
cialist, Al Goldin.
The Mediterranean style
architecture will bring residents
back to another era of elegance
and style reminiscent of small
European village living.
"It is ideally suited for many
different types of buyers," said
Goldin.
"We are catering to those
who are read\ to settle here.
both full time as well as season-
ally. They are reserving from as
far as the California coast to
the Midwest and Northeast por-
tions of the U.S. Just base on
the floor plan design. features.
pricing and location, people
ha e reser ed offour Web site,"
Goldin said. "No%\ with the
sales office open and an actual
building in process.we expect
even more interest .
There are also many couples
and families just entering the
bab\ boomer market who want
a weekend geta la\ within two
*hours of their primary resi-
;dences. which they maintain in
- either Southern and Southwest
Florida. Man\ ot these Florida
residents have a longer term
exit plan to eventually move to
Lake Placid on a more full-time
basis.
Lake Placid has so much nat-
ural charm and is free of the
fast pace and congestion that so
man\ of our clients seek refuge
from. When you evaluate how
affordable the pricing is in the
area and couple that with the
proximity to maJor cities such
as Orlando and Tampa, it is no
surprise that Highlands County
has become a highly popular
area in which to purchase real
estate.
There are so many people


moving here who seek a fully
turnkey living situation with-
out the headache of single fam-
ily home ownership.
Over two years of planning
has gone into this project with
every detail carefully planned.
There is an onsite sales
office, which is noi\ open from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday
through Saturday. There will be
residences completed as early
as January 2007.

Reed's Oasis is the latest amenity added to the historic Reed's Motel in Avon Park. The Oasis is a conference hall nestled in a tropical setting.


Oasis is newest place to gather in Avon Park


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun correspondent:
AVON PARK,- Like a
beckoning oasis on U.S. 27
somewhere between Miami and
Orlando, Reed's Motel has been
"Glowing since 1957" and
greeting road-weary sojourners.
Just.south of Avon Park's
Main Street, the landmark
motor hotel, known for its neon
diving lady sign, recently added
Reed's Oasis to its growing list
of glowing amenities.
The Oasis, a pair of buildings
behind the original motel that
the owners bought but couldn't
rent commercially, transformed
from a vision to a conference
hall nestled in a tropical setting
complete with a tiki hut, water-
fall and a pond.


John Parry bought the motel
in 2005 and closed it for seven
months, reopening it with an
extreme makeover in time for
the 12 Hours of Sebring in
2006.
The Oasis opened in
September.
"The Oasis is a fabulous
place to have a get-together,"
Patricia Brock said, after cele-
brating her 40th birthday there.
"The atmosphere was great."
Having already built a tiki
hut by the motel's pool, Parry
decided the hall should have
one as well.
The second hut is 30-feet by
40-feet. The waterfall and fish
pond, were added at the sugges-
tion of Tami Lott, Parry's busi-
ness partner and the motel's


Reed's Oasis offers a nice setting under the tiki hut.

In keeping with the
"Glowifng" slogan and facade.
the Oasis was treated with a
neon sign and lighting treat-
ment of its own.

board member Renee Bennett.
who has attended four functions
at the Oasis. said the motel's
hall is a nice surprise for the
area. ,
"Ever\time I'm there it just
makes me feel good, nice and
warm," she said, describing the
conference center as.a balance
between opposing forces.
"Even in a professional meeting
you may want to portray a casu-
al setting, and you can do that."
Parry said the building has a
fully-functional kitchen two

ovens and refrigerators, a
microwave,- dishwasher, ice
machine and formal dinner-
\\are. .
Its multimedia center
includes a 42-inch flat-screen
plasma TV, D\D, \CR and CD
players, a radio receiver with
surround sound (%t which is piped
outside too), high speed
Internet and conference calling.
Guests have access to barbe-
cue grills, a podium, dance
floor, three bathrooms and two
bedrooms.
"It fit our needs to a 'T',"
John Giddens said of his son's
recent wedding, the first for
Oasis. "I would definitely go
back for an\ other event."
Lott said the Oasis' bookings
thus far ha\e been from word-
of-mouth endorsements.
'" "People' don't really kno "
what we've done here," Parry
added. "This is not the same
motel it used to be."

Oasis are at 102 U.S. 27 South,

EXPRESS
Continued from 1A
once the clean-up is done.
The challenge is cleaning up
a mess created over many
years.
"I tell people I'm not
defending the railroad, but I do
see progress.," he said. "When I
call, they answer. And every-
thing (Luthi) said he would do,
he did."
"The lay of the land is part of
the problem," Simmons said.
In the middle of town the
rails run on even ground, often
abutting city property, making
access easy. The areas are better
kept as a result, sometimes with
the help of private citizens sim-
ply working to keep their
neighborhoods clean.
But north and south of down-
town, Simmons said, the rail-
road bed elevates, running
along the top of a steep
embankment which needs a
certain amount of vegetation to
remain stabilized.
Over the years neglected
plants have taken hold and run
wild, both north and south, he


said.
The steep slopes make clear-
ing the vegetation difficult in
the first place, and the years of
neglect make that problem even
tougher. Heavy equipment is
now needed to do the work;
equipment the railroad says it
does not own.
"We want to make things
happen," Simmons said. If I
had a magic wand, I'd use it,
but it just isn't going to happen
overnight because it is a case of
due process. For one thing, they
have to contract the heavy work
out."
The city council, responding
to citizen pressure, has set the
end of November as a deadline
for the railroad to come forward
with an exact timetable and
plan and a satisfactory starting
date.
While Jeff Luthi of CSX
answered his telephone on the
first ring, he declined to com-
ment for this story, referring the
New-Sun to his company's
communications department.
Attempts to reach other compa-
ny representatives were unsuc-
cessful.

Tuffley thankful for a year of od

year has it? It has! Oh my.


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY

SEBRING It is a half hour
past the Tuffin' It With Tuffley
deadline and I am just getting
down to the niny gnrry of r nt-
ing.
That is because bad timing
has dogged me for days. as one
after another job assignment
fell through.
I \ ill be delivering mail, sell-
ing insurance, picking oranges
and ihallelujahi guiding people
to big fish I'm just not doing
an\ of that this week. It means I
had nothing to w rite.
But as it turns out. this mal
not be a disaster. In fact, com-
ing up on Thanksgii tng it ma.
esen be a blessing.
That s because I am a big
believer in gratitude. e\en if I
can't remember to feel it all of
the time. Heaven knows. I have
a lor to be grateful about not
the least being the opportunity
to live out Tuffin" It With
Tuffley every week.
But I discovered the other
da). when I spoke to a group of
lifelong learners at South
Florida Community College.
that a person can get so caught
up in living, the\ forget to
reflect.
S When I %\as asked for more
details about the feature. I


found to mN dismay I couldn't
supply them. Worse. I couldn't
name e\er\ assignment I'd
done dunng the \ear.
And it has been a short \ ork
year last Thanksgil\ in I was
less than fi\e weeks awa from
a week in the hospital, with a
month's convalescence to fol-
low I got sick on Dec. 26.
and didn't start writing again
until Jan. 201. Nl first Tuffin'
feature didn't appear until
March 12.
So. w ith thanks to the SFCC
lifelong learners w\ho triegered
this resie\w into being. I'm tak-
ing a moment to dip into the
archl\es and remember every-
thing l'e done since March
It \was a a year of extremes.
with 37 adventures so far this
N ear.
The\ started with a look at a
hospital emergency room and
its team of personnel.
Then I \\as taken to the
heights soaring 60 feet o\er
A\on Park in a cherry picker
bucket w ith tree trimmer Tra\ is
Cr'osson.
White knuckled. I ~as just
glad I didn't faint.
Later. I sank to the depths
like a brick in Lake Denton
\when I tried out scuba dining
for a living.
Ears pierced ith pain. I %was
just glad I didn't die.
I gained some mental balance
after being hypnotized b. Jon
Spiegel in an assignment I
found personally helpful.
It %\as cool riding in a police
car w th Sergeant Rod Dilling
down in Lake Placid (although.
foolishly. I wvas a little disap-


pointed when nothing exciting
happened .
Tamer assignments, but a lot
more interesting than I had at
first thought, were jobs like
shipping clerk, call center oper-
ator, librarian and certified pub-
lic accountant.
There were a lot of agricul-
tural jobs this year and as a city
kid I had a lot to learn.
I farmed alligators, cows,
bees and pigs and helped take


care of horses.
The Gatorama alligators fas-
cinated me. but I careful\
staved at a distance: Nick
Bishop's cows intimidated me
because I got up so close that at
one point I had to look up to see
them: and one of Glenn Eroh's
bees stung me nothing like
taking a hit for the team.
Most of all I enjoyed spend-
ing time at Jim Wood's pig farm
and the Heartland Horses &
Handicapped barn, because
they are t\wo of the most peace-
ful places on earth.
Back in the real \world I
%worked a fast food line at
Quizno's and sold hot dogs with
.,. ,.lg.,*&l ^iaasaB


Deanna Hubbard outside of
Home Depot.
I spent a lot of time with peo-
ple \working with children.
I watched as excited teachers
reached out to the class of 2010.
developing a new course in teen
leadership I watched as school
bus drivers got their students to
school, and the cooks, bakers.
and servers at Fred Wild
Elementary School got all their
children fed. and as counselors
helped young people in Avon
Park enjoy the summer.
I spent time \with family busi-
nesses like Laves Tire.
Highlands Aviation, and
Coutures Art & Framing.
I, ;- M


S' K.TA'RA.,S ONS.'Ne'As-Sun
Christopher Tuffle tries to maintain his composure Friday afternoon, while working under deadline.


i jobs

At Coutures I followed a
print through its framing
process and operated the differ-
ent machines. I learned it would:
take about 10 of me to replace
one experienced framer.
I sold fresh fruit from Jaime
Castillo's fresh air stand at the
Lakeshore Mall. watched an
Insight Auction up close, baked
bread at WVinn Dixie and tried to
master some elemental Tae
Kwon Do moves at Val Henry's
Martial Arts America.
I learned about cutting hair at
the air-conditioned Sebring.
Square Barber Shop. and'
learned about installing ADT
security systems in a very un-
air-conditioned attic.
Smart Best at Classic Cars let'
me touch a '57 Chey., while he
showed me the pleasures of a
skilled mechanic's life, and I
got to move the seat of a tractor-.
trailer up and down at SFCC's!
truck drivers program.
I discovered there are simi-'
larities between running film
through a projector and
newsprint through a printing
press, and had fun riding in a:
collapsible boat while collect-:
ing water samples from an area,
lake with Erin McCarta of the'
Water & Soil Conservation
District.
I even volunteered time at the
Lake Placid Chamber of
Commerce. which turned out to
be a very professional place
staffed by hard \working ama-
teurs.
After all that and an illness
that almost scared me to death,
it is right to pause and reflect.
I am grateful to everyone
who helped me with this fea-
ture.
And just as grateful to all of
you who read it.
Thank \ou, and thanks to the
teachers \ ho taught you.

LORIDA Alan Fogle,
Linda DeMase and Mike

This PVC-coated translucent

approval and test standards. In
addition, it's quick and easy to
install. It's lightweight with an
attractive flat, clean look. And
because it weighs a fraction of
steel or aluminum panels,
they're easier to handle. They
can be rolled, laid flat or hung
for compact, easy storage. The

Lowe's teams

with Habitat
Special to the News-Sun
Lowe's Heroes recently
reached out to the Butler family
by landscaping the yard of their
Habitat for Humanity house.
Lowe's Heroes are employees
of the local store in Sebring,
who brought with them every-
thing a family could dream of to
completely landscape their
yard.
The first box truck of plants,
trees, shrubs, ornamental fenc-
ing and exterior lighting was
unloaded by nine dedicated
workers, who were up at. the
crack of dawn to deliver hope to
this family in need. The next
flat bed truck arrived with fork
lift in tow to deliver soil, lava
rock, mulch and river rock, all
making this a miracle project.
Just like on television.
Pam Lowry, human resource
manager and nine-time Habitat
volunteer, chose the Habitat
project because "it was the most
warranted and the need is there;
we are home improvement peo-
ple and it's what we do best."
This was Sales Manager
Brian Sheldon's third time
working a Habitat project. He
said, "The customers support
us, and we in turn are able to


support the community in a big
way.",
Soon to be homeowner
Jessica Butler said, "I can't
thank Lowe's enough for the
donated yard and especially for
coming out and planting the
yard with me."
She was excited to see the
yard appear.
Rick Morwick, the outside
garden manager, took time with
Butler to show her how to care
for and protect her new plants.
Morwick is the brain child
behind the design and use of
landscape material. He said, "1


do this for the family and it's a
good chance to meet people and
have fun."
The work was completed
with the additional help of 19
prospective Habitat homeown-
ers who are working on com-
pleting 400 hours of sweat equi-
ty in order to be a first-time
home buyer.
Store Manager Art Lucas
stopped by to check on the
troops. He gave praise to all the
employees and added, "Pam
and Rick have spent a lot of
time on this project and they
deserve extra praise."

volunteers of Habitat.
The Butler home is at 5915

Glen Tope and painter V. W.
Galbraith were great -friends.
They enjoyed outdoor activi-
ties, especially fishing and
hunting on land near Fisheating
Creek at Venus.
Called the Gannett Slough, it
was a typical old Florida ham-.
mock. The property was part of
the land owned by the family of
Eloise Pearce Tope. Mr. Pearce,
Eloise's farther, was a rancher
and commanded thousands of
acres of prime Florida land.
The slough was a favorite
spot for recreation. The paint-
ing of the Gannett Slough is
done in oil and captures the
spirit of Florida as it was for
generations.
Having the painting on dis-
play at the Museum will give
visitors a glimpse of Florida
rarely seen by most travelers as
they speed along on the high-
ways and toll roads of the state.

An original painting of the Gannett Slough at Venus, created by V. W. Galbraith in 1972 and shown in
this photograph, has been donated to the Lake Placid Depot Museum by Eloise Tope and her family, rep-
resented by her daughter Kathy Tope Myers. The painting will hang proudly in the Memorial Room of

Posed in front of the Tope Vegetable Truck sculpture on the grounds
of the Lake Placid Historical Society Depot Museum are Eloise
Pearce Tope( from left), her daughter Kathy Tope Myers, and sister-
in-law Donna Tope Griffith, and Society President Sonny Stalls. The
representation of the Tope truck was created by the Mural Society's
founder Bob Porter and Joe Bonnett, using some actual truck parts
for the 'slice of life' sculpture. It presents a glimpse of the agricul-
tural activit) that thrived years ago on the east side of Lake
Istopoka in the muck fields. The Tope Farms played a vital part idi
the development of truck farming in Lake Placid. __..


Even before there was a
passable road around Lake
Istopoka, vegetable farmers
saw the possibilities for crops
among the nutrition-rich muck
created by the lake.
Transporting the harvest
from the fields to available
roads presented a challenge that
was solved in part by using
boats or rafts. Stories abound of
problems with using the lake as
'a hjih a\.
Unpredictable winds and
rough.w'alet made the crowing
dangerous at times. Live were_.

painted on the side of the railroad car was designed by Stalls. The
numbers inside the shield represent the date of Aug. 9, 1982, which
is the date the historical society was founded. The two 'Rs' are a
stylized representation of the word "Railroad.'

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


A run at office leaves one candidate with no votes


Normally I would do my
post-election poke-fun-at-the-
process column the Sunday fol-
lowing said election. To those
of you who follow the column,
that obviously didn't happen.
Given my jet lag and the fact
I spent last Wednesday flying
back from Las Vegas, it is a
small miracle that there was a
column at all.
But it would have been tough
to pull off a column on the elec-
tion last week. Being not only
away from Sebring, but away
from Florida during Election
Day meant I did not have all the
results for local and statewide
races readily available. I also
didn't have Internet access for
much of the time, another hand-
icap.
I did try to watch some of the
returns Tuesday night. I got
enough out of them to find out
Republicans lost the House of
Representatives before I tried to
get some sleep.
So it's a week later and the
results are in. Democrats not
only have the House but they
also have the Senate. All the


ROTC belongs

in the schools
Editor:
I have recently watched
"The O'Reilly Factor" on the
Fox News channel, and have
heard something that angers me
- San Francisco has banned
Reserve Officer Training Corps
from its schools because of the
Pentagon's "don't ask, don't
tell" policy regarding homo-
sexual men in the military.
Now, from what I under-
stand, San Francisco is a very
left-wing area, and most left-
wingers are against the military
and everything it stands for, no
questions asked. I believe
this ban is just to keep military-
related activities out of the area
just because the Board of
Education is full 'of left-
wingers that absolutely hate the
military. They say their reason
for banning it is because the
military's, gay ban is against the
school's equal rights for gays,
therefore, banning any mili-
tary-like activities.
Thousands of their own stu-
dents protest in distaste for this
recent decision, and I don't
blame them. I, personally, am
against homosexual support in
every way. It is a trait that gays
themselves can change. God
even states in his Word that he
is against homosexuality.
The military is making a
good decision in saying that
they will not allow openly gay
people into their hospitality, in
my humble opinion. ROTC'
should be able to commence in
San Francisco schools, no
questions asked.,
I, being in ROTC myself,
have a sense of duty to protect
this program in any way possi-
ble.

Take away the

dress points
Editor:
I feel I need to comment on
the Heartland Idol here in
Highlands County. First of all,
if you have not attended any of
the shows, or missed one, you
are missing a great feature in
our community. All of the peo-
ple involved with the Heartland
Idol have worked to make a
local competition a great asset
to Highlands County. Please
plan on attending one in the
future.
Having said that, let me say
that my wife and I were
shocked, along with everyone
in the Circle, when Flor
Gonzalez did not make the
final cut of five entertainers in
the final event. Yes, I under-
stand that from the very first
show and every show after-
ward, it was announced that the
way a person dressed would be
part of the point system. ,
I don't know why Flor did
not dress up a little for that
event. Perhaps he worked late,
something came up, didn't
have the money, or perhaps, he
just made a mistake. He came

gone through with
almost no calls for the lawyers
to get involved. Democrats are
rejoicing; Republicans are sigh-
ing and trying to decide what
happened. (They know they
lost, I'm just not sure they've
figured out why).
Meanwhile, I have a column
to write. So as I sat in front of
my trusty laptop, I asked
myself, "Self, do I want to write
a column about the election?"
Well, then I came across this
story about the mayoral election
of Waldenburg, Ark., and said,
"Oh, yes, I want to write about
this."
This is the sad tale of Randy
Wooten. He was running for
mayor in this town of 80,
against incumbent William H.
Wood and fellow challenger
Ronnie Chatman.
Wooten, who owns a bar in
town, figured he was good for


I

at least one vote -
the vote he cast for
himself. That
makes sense. If I
ever took it into


my head to run for.
public office, if I still decided to
do so once I came to my senses
I would probably vote for
myself.
Well Wooten's wife,
Roxanne, went down to City
Hall the day after the election to
check the results. She discov-
ered that Wood and Chatman
were tied at 18 votes apiece.
However, her husband's vote
total was recorded as zero.
Zero. As in no votes.
Wooten found it hard to
believe. He knew he'd voted for
himself, and he was told by a
number of people that they'd
voted for him.
So Wooten suspects some-
thing fishy is going on. As I
write this, there is some hue and
cry over whether or not the
touch screen voting machine
was operating correctly..
According to Wooten's wife


(who does claim to have voted
for her husband) the machine
was touchy if you didn't
touch just the right place on the
screen it jumped to another can-
didate's name.
Unfortunately for Wooten,
the paper records used for a
recount back up the original
results. Since none of those
who Wooten said voted for him
are coming forward, he is think-
ing about dropping the whole
mess.
I think he should think again.
After all, think of all those poor
lawyers who aren't doing any-
thing since no one is challeng-
ing the national elections. And
there must. be media people
who would love to swarm
Waldenburg and interview any-
thing that moves. Think of it!
Then again, I get the impres-
sion Wooten actually likes his
town.

in casual clothes, while the
other entertainers came
dressed. And it cost him. He
didn't make the final cut.
I felt that reflected a giant
flaw in the judging system. He
did a fantastic job on each
evening, winning the audience
award on several nights,
including the last night. He is a
great singer that interacted with
the crowd each time he per-
formed.
The comment was made that
the five best singers were on
the stage at the end. I and
ever.bodd else at that show
would argue that point and say
the five best dressed singers
were on stage at the end.
So, let's make this show
even better. Take away the
dress points. Judge the per-
formers on their talents. Save
the dress for the big show,
American Idol, where the dress
is provided for the performers.
It's not rocket science to
judge on talent and presenta-
tion. Get the audience
involved, add a person chosen
from the audience every night
as a judge. Make it a different
person every contest. Blindfold
half of the panel; add some see-
ing impaired people as judges.
Just don't make the mistake of
letting one of our best top five
talents go for the lack of an out-
standing dress code.
We, the audience, 'chose Flor
that night and I think it's time
for the judges to listen to the
input of the people who make
the Heartland Idol competition
a success. The people who
come faithfully to all of the
concerts, buy T-shirts, hot dogs
and give the applause. Without
us, the Heartland Idol would
not succeed.
Now having said all of that,

knows, but he deserved the

Campaign

becomes more

Editor:
Although it is getting much
harder to see through the fog of
negativity, the glistening light
of the city on the hill still
shines.
I wish to thank everyone
who helped in any way with
my campaign. Your contribu-
tions provided the means ...
your support provided the hope
... and your friendship the
courage to look adversity in the
eye and keep going.
I walked into this communi-
ty roughly six months ago not
knowing a soul other than my
parents. I accepted a mammoth
challenge. The learning curve
was incredibly steep. I fought
hard to be heard, even when it
was apparent that some weren't
willing to subject themselves,
or others for that matter, to an
opposing point of view.
I ran a campaign based upon
what I thought was right and
honorable ... not on what I was
told would gain votes. I truly
believe that politicians are
indebted to those who support
them. I am very proud to say
that 100 percent of my support
came from you the people.
The great thing about life is
that you never know what the
good Lord is going to ask you
to do next. I don't know what
tomorrow will bring but today I
am a better person for the expe-
rience and the friendships I've
made along the way.

the "thank you" program for
Veterans Day. I was surprised
at the number of "thank you's"
I received from young and old.
I shall always remember one
young boy said to me with a
puzzled look, "What were you
in?" He had never seen a 90-
year old person in a white uni-
form. I replied, "I am a Navy
officer." He said, "What are the
medals for?" I replied "for the
initial invasion of Leytu Gulf,
Lingayen Gulf and Okinawa."
He replied "Never heard of
them."
I just hope some day that lit-
tle boy's history book will give
him more details about the
importance of those invasions
to our victory in World War II.
I am happy that Nov. 11 was
a great day of appreciation for
all veterans.

I was raised by
an incompetent set SHEILA
of parents and
frankly I think Sheila E
that's the only kind
available. Most
new parents want
someone to tell them what to do
with their babies and children
and that's why the Dr. Spock
books were so popular, way
back when. In retrospect, many
say he didn't know what he was
talking about since he had no
children of his own.
But the quest by new parents
for guidance is always there, so
his books sold well and he
made a pile of money. It
reminds me of my sister-in-law
who knew some nice people
with well-behaved children.
She felt her relationship with
that family gave her the right to
tell me how to raise mine; and
considering she had no children
of her own, I wonder some-
times if she understood how
close she came to being picked
up bodily and thrown by me
from a second-story window.
into the thorn bushes below.
In the end I suppose as par-
ents the thing to do with babies
is to. love them, water them,
feed them and allow them to
develop their own way, as we

Ryan shouldn't be afraid
to pick the baby up
if it cries. Maybe
it's hungry, thirsty,
or had a bad dream; babies
dream. We shouldn't be afraid
to hold it, sing it a song, or do a
dance and hold it near our
hearts until it feels better.
In the long run a baby is just
another person in our lives;
someone who will move in and
stay for a long time; a stranger
at first. If we can resist trying to
mold it into what we consider
to be the perfect offspring,
we'll be pleased with the
results. They are not our prop-
erty. A baby is merely. another
human being who happens to
be part of the family unit.
Unfortunately I didn't know
this when I was raising my own
children. I learned it through
experience and finally caught
on when I didn't need that
knowledge anymore. But that's
why God made grandparents,
they know the score and that
makes them indispensable.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER
Jan Merop


Harvest time
Sometimes I imagine what
it would have been like being
raised on a farm to expe-
rience living off the land,
canning fruits and vegeta-
bles. raising farm animals,
roaming the countryside, hay
rides, wading in streams,
fishing and just enjoying the
accomplishment of working
together as a family.
But, there's another side to
this homey, wholesome -
somewhat romanticized -
imagining of farm life.
Obstacles, traumas and
even deprivation accompany
the bounty. The reality of
unpredictable w weather,
insects, changing prices, hard
%work and rare, if any. days
off can't be ignored.
Wherever we raise our
families, we work and strug-
gle together through variouss
trials. Each family's e.e is on
harvest time, whether r it is
food or some other realized
family goal.
However, sometimes we
want to skip the cultivation
process.
When our family clearly\
understood the need to mno\e
from New' Jersey to Florida.
%e gathered together as a
family' prayed and discussed
the pros and cons. An mime-
diate harvesting of our plans
didn't occur though %te
wished it could hate.
Instead. %e had to wait
through the frustration of tr -
ing to sell our house. We
learned patience and trust as
m\ husband. Ken. searched
and hoped for an available
postal position. In so doing.
we cultivated readiness when
the timing was right.
When we got the %word
that a carrier position was
available to hiis in Sebring,
we sprang into action. Our
home buzzed with toil and
excitement.
The long range hardest has
been plentiful. But. our boy s
e'en reaped some short term
icing on the cake with a
"dream" vacation at Disney
World for a few" daNs as .we
traveled to Sebring.
Faith keeps hope alive:
faith in God %\ho kno ws the
beginning the seed: from
the end the hardest.
We're told in Proterbs 24-
27. NIV. "First plant w our
fields: then build \our barn."
Consequently. we don't go
out and build a barn assum-
ing \e'll be able to fill it.
Rather we do the \ork of
planting: putting in the hours
of planning, the sweat and
tears. Then \\e risk and step
out courageously. In other
words. %%e cultivate what's
been planted by tending it
and pulling weeds of dis-
couragement. Then build the
barn in faith that that we've
planted will bear fruit.
The farmer's bounty is
e' ident on most tables at
Thanksgi ing. As he sow s,
cultivates and reaps, we
share in the blessing. But. it's
God w\ho warms the seed in
the ground and waters it
from hea en.
How gracious that no mat-
ter our occupation. God
allows us to work and share
in the hardest. Being thankful
for the toil makes us more
appreciative of the harvest.
Selah.

Eating in New York's

* Comnmenimal-v
By LARRY and ELAINE LEVEY

NEW YORK CITY Our "hearts were
touched" this past October in a restaurant in New
York City's Chinatown.
This experience was part of an Elderhostel
program called "The Tastes of New York." and it
was all about how food and restaurants and mar-
keis help preserve a culture, a tradition, a neigh-
borhood.
Like, for example. Chinatoswn. in lower
Manhattan. We brunched at a place called Dim
Sum Go Go, with the name reflecting dishes dat-
ing back hundreds of years and updated to the
21st century.
Dim Sum? The term means. "It's so good it
touches your heart." (Dim means "touch:" sum
means "heart.") It's a light Cantonese meal
served as brunch from late morning to early after-
noon. It includes a wide variety of choices. from
sweet to salty. %%ith a combination of meat, veg-
etables, seafood and fruit.
Here's a sampling of "hat we were served:
Spnng rolls, Chinese sausage and sticky rice in
lotus leaf. shrimp and pork dumpling, crab meat
dumpling, mushroom dumpling, snow pea leaf
dumpling, duck dumpling all topped off by
fresh mango pudding.
The meal was spiced up by some words from
the ow ner. Veronica Leung. Calling herself "an
authentic Chinese girl." she said she serves dish-
es that her mother used to make. She also shared
something about her work ethic: "I opened this
restaurant six years ago and hate not taken a day
off."
During our Elderhostel jaunts, we tasted more
than just the food. We got to taste the flavor of
several of the many different neighborhoods that
make up Manhattan.
We spent hours %walking the streets of
Chinato" n. gawking at the hundreds of shops
and threading our w\ay among the thousands of
locals and tourists also \walking the streets. Our
Elderhostel guides told us Chinatown is expand-
ing. In fact. it's crowding out another ethnic
neighborhood. Little Italy. That's because the
Asian population is grow ing, as folks from other
\Asian countries, like \Vietnam. are mo\ ing in. But
not the Koreans. For some reason. they' e opted
to live in yet another section of Manhattan.


The Pickle Gu.s in New York City offer various
types of pickles for tasting.

Not all Manhattan neighborhoods are ethnic.
Take what used to be called the Ganse'oort
Meatpacking District no%\ called the
Gansevoort Market District. It used to be jam-
packed with warehouses occupied by wholesale
meat companies. Today, few such companies still
operate, and the district is now labeled as Newx
York's most fashionable neighborhood., thanks to.
as one report has it. "hip restaurants, exclusive
clubs and patcheck-draining boutiques." It's
w here you can buy a $100 hamburger or a $2,500
T-shirt. It's also where many of those old ware-
houses are being gutted and turned into high-
priced condos and apartment houses.
But along %with the still-operating meat compa-
nies. other traces of the old blue-collar neighbor-
hood remain. Like Florent, an out-of-the-way
restaurant %where %we had our first Elderhostel

Sleeping three



blocks from



Ground Zero


* Comnnentarn
By LARRY and ELAINE LEVEY
News-Sun cortn.lndoils
NEW YORK CITY Five
years later, life in New York
City is back to "business as
usual." During our recent
Elderhostel visit to New York,
we saw only a handful of
reminders of %what happened
Sept. 11, 2001.
But, as it turned out. we were
headquartered right in the heart
of those reminders.
For five nights. Elderhostel
put us up at the Marriot
Financial Center Hotel about
three blocks from Ground Zero.
The hotel is squeak\ clean,
doormen welcome you and
transport your bags to your
room, desk clerks are polite and
efficient, a bowl of apples sits
on the registration counter, a
New )ork Times magically
appears outside your door each
morning. The hotel describes
itself as "Con\eniently down-
town Distinctively upscale."
But, during the aftermath of
Sept. 11. this hotel was trans-
formed into something less than
upscale. For four months, the
banquet rooms and the lobby
(where our Elderhostel group
gathered each morning I became
a "Red Cross respite center."
As a hotel spokesperson
described it. "Recovery crews
and clean up crews came in for
meals and rest and their oswn
reco very.
The hotel itself suffered only
minor damage from the explo-
sions. "We had some 'water
damage and some broken win-
dows. along \ ith some haz-
ardous materials."
It reopened for business Jan.
2, 2002. The respite center is
just a memory.

Other reminders
We spent time \walking the
area around the hotel. We saxw

conducted b\ "Lower

ers. rescue workers, police.
firefighters and volunteers w ho

with all tour guides sharing
their personal experiences.
To us. the most heart-tugging
memorials were found- at' the
two fire stations and one police
station that border the Ground
Zero site. All three stations dis-
play memorials to honor those
the\ had lost. Our visit to the
police station "as particularly
touching. We walked inside
where an officer asked if he
could help us. We said wxe were
doing a story for our local
newspaper about Sept. 11 and
could we take some photos of
their display.
"Go ahead.," he said.
See ZERO, page 7C


This fire truck, honoring the firemen lost on Sept. 11. is on display
at a fire station directly across from Ground Zero.



Elderhostel: It's



an adventure

By LARRY LEVEY
Nws-.Sun correspondent
They call Elderhostel "Adventures in Lifelong Learning" and
that's right on the button.
Elderhostel is a world-wide, well organized travel. educational
and social experience for adults 55 and older. And it's pretty much
"all-inclusive." One price covers lodging, most (sometimes all) ofi
the meals, speakers, field trips, and all tips and ta.xes. It does nod
cover travel costs going to and returning from the destination.
Programs are rated for their activity levels. ranging from Level
1, where participants must handle their own luggage. carry a buf-
fet tray and climb a fewx stairs,. to Level 6. filled with "full days of
fast-paced, strenuous physical challenges."
Programs are varied, ranging from active outdoors, including
national parks; exploring unique locales: holidays, festivals and
events; food and wine; homes and gardens: and indi idual skills
(including art and photography, cooking. health and fitness, crafts,
language, performing arts. even golf and tennis).
There's an inter-generational program, where grandparents and
their grandchildren can learn and discover together.

I didn't find any worms listed
in the fourth edition of "The
Darwin Awards," but I sure did
find accounts of people who
made their life ending decision
with no more thought than
those worms. Why else would
someone try to drive a motorcy-
cle with his feet? Why else
would someone light the fuse of
a large firecracker while hold-
ing it between his legs? Why
else would a young lady try to
do a handstand on a balcony
railing 15 feet above a cement
patio?
Not eterione written up in

awful after effects might make

tionary tales are, to the best of
the author's ability, confirmed
by newspaper or other eyewit-
ness accounts. And there, but
for the painful early lessons
taught us by our parents, could
go us.

than an apology.

Crime Club author Marion
Babson entertains us with
"There Must be Some
Mistake," while prolific mys-
tery author Ngaio Marsh pres-
ents crime puzzles that always
make us work to see the blun-
ders of the criminals. Marsh's
"Grave Mistake" was published
in 1978. Marsh's detective
Inspector Roderick Alleyn was
introduced in 1934 in her first
novel "A Man Lay Dead." She
was the only one of the great
English women mystery writers
that included Margery
Allingham. Agatha Christie,
and Dorothy L. Sayers, who
was still publishing in the
1980s. Her vivid characteriza-
tions and dialogues keep read-
ers turning the pages, even after
some 70 years.
Make no mistake; all public
libraries will be closed Nov. 23-

for our many blessings on this
Thanksgiving holiday.

Message from Florida Hospital
Heartland Division
President -John Harding


Dear Friends,

We devote our time, talent and technology to Christ's mission of care
and compassion, and we dedicate our hearts and hands to carry forward
a legacy of healing. History may be measured from decade to decade, but commitment is
measured from one generation to the next. Florida Hospital Heartland has roots nearly 60
years strong.

As responsible stewards of the resources entrusted to us, we work in collaboration with the
Foundation Boards to provide services that go beyond the expectation of our community,
including technology that is at the forefront of healthcare.
As a mission-driven organization, we believe strength and growth have little virtue unless they
work to benefit others. Your contributions will benefit the health of our community in many
ways from purchasing life-saving equipment, offering community wellness programs, to
supporting volunteer mission projects. We also sponsor nursing scholarship programs, and use
funding for recruiting and supporting much-needed physician specialists.
Christ's healing ministry of love impacted eachlife He touched. His challenge to us is to"go
and do likewise"
Sincerely,





n R. Harding
President/Chief Executive Officer
Florida Hospital Heartland Division

Topiary gardening: An art with shrubs or trees


Topiary is the art of
trimming and training
shrubs or trees into
unnatural ornamental
shapes.
The shrubs and sub-
shrubs used in topiary
are evergreen (or
"evergray"), have
small leaves or nee-
dles, produce dense GRO
foliage, and have com- SF
pact and/columnar
growth habits. You Anna
don't have to live on
any estate or working
as a horticultural plan-
ner in order to start a topiary of
your own. As a matter of fact,
you don't even have to have a
tree.
Instead of working with an
existing shrub or tree and shap-
ing the branches 'by cutting
back until you get the shape you
want, you can create a topiary
figure by starting with a frame,


over which you will
then grow a plant, giv-
Sing the effect of true
topiary without the
necessity for ladders,
saws, and professional
trimmers.
Start by making a
wire frame, using wire
that is heavy enough to
IWING stand, up but flexible
ASON enough to bend. Try
starting simple, with
C oley maybe a geometric
shape, such as a trian-
gle or circle. You'll be
making a frame that's
three-dimensional, leaving a
cavity that is big enough to put
a plant in later. The cavity can
be at any spot in the. structure
that makes sense in terms of the
design.
You can reinforce the shape
by using chicken wire the
regular kind of chicken wire
you find at a hardware or farm


supply store. Bend the wire into
the shape you want, then rein-
force it with the chicken wire,
until it takes the shape you
want.
Now that you have a wire
shape, the next thing you will
need is called "sheet moss" -
make sure you don't get "peat
moss" instead of sheet moss.
Sheet moss is a springy, light
green moss that is packaged in
big sheets, so that it can be
unrolled so you c ut as much
as you need, then wrap it
around the frame.
As you place the sheet moss
against the wire frame, attach it
with then wire, stitching the
moss onto the frame with a tra-
ditional basting stitch. Make
sure not to cover the cavity that
you left open; this would be a
good time to set a small flower
pot in there, which you'll later
plant with ivy.
Over time the ivy will take


root in the moss, and will con-
tinue to grow, so you'll need to
continue pinning the ivy to the
moss as it grows. Over the next
few months the ivy should grow
so that soon the entire shape is
covered in ivy.
Maintain your topiary both
by watering the roots of the ivy,
just as you would if it were in a
pot, and by spritzing the whole


thing with water regularly;
remember that you need to keep
the whole sculpture moist, so
you can't just water the roots of
,the ivy.
As your topiary begins to fill
in, support its heavy top by
wiring it to a metal stake. Be
certain to check the tightness of
the wire once a month to pre-
vent it from cutting the trunk.


Trim your topiary only on
sunny days. This prevents the
growth of fungus in the plant's
fresh wounds that often occurs
when trimmed in damp weather.

This memorial decorates the wall behind the desk at the police sta-

Continued from lC

After the photos, we asked if
they had any other material
about that day we could see.
"It's all filed away," he said.
"After all, that was five years


ago."
Then we asked, "Were you
here that day?"
His matter-of-fact attitude
quickly vanished. His eyes
welled up. He shook his head
yes. And he turned and walked
off.
Some things you just can't
:"file away."

EATING
Continued from 1A

breakfast (of ham and eggs,
home fries and toast). As its
owner, Florent Morellet. who
bought the restaurant in 1985,
told us, "The most important
ingredient of a successful
restaurant is that the food is
good and %sorth the price. The
second most important thing is
that the place has a feeling of
being a home ... where you feel
comfortable as soon as you set
foot in the door.... Some
restaurants have it, some
don't."
Another eaters that reflects
the past is Katz's Delicatessen
on the Lower East Side. A bus.,
bustling place, it's been a deli
for 118 years. A couple from
New Jersey sitting at the next
table told us they had taken the

train in that morning just for
Kaiz's famous piled-high pas-
trami-on-rne. (You can order
pastrami. corn beef. salami.
cheese cake. etc. from its Web
site" i'ww.katodeli.cwn.)
As we walked the various


neighborhoods, what struck us
was the creati\lit of a number
of special) stores. We saw% one
place that sells only old-time
78. 33 1/3 and 45 rpm records.
And some of us sampled good-
ies from the Chinatown Ice


Cream Factory.
Our personal favorites
included "The -Pickle Guys," a
shop featuring barrels of sour
pickles, new pickles, hot pick-
les, pickled tomatoes, six kinds
of olives, peppers, mushrooms,
pickled celery and carrots. (And
they ship: Go to www.pick-
leguys.com.)
And our number one choice:
"Rice to Riches," where they
sell more than 30 varieties of
rice pudding, with such names
as "Perfectly Legal Pecan Pie,"
"Rest in Peach," "Coconut
Coma" and "Fluent in French
Toast." And, as their menu
warns you, "Eating three sensi-
ble, balanced meals a day will
onl\ spoil sour appetite for rice
pudding."
So there \ou hase it: Dim
Sum, pastrami. pickles and rice
pudding. That's New York for
you.
It will touch \our heart.

Homeowners need to be cautious of wetlands


A publication titled
"Homeowner's Guide to
Wetlands" is available at our
office, and I thought I would
take this opportunity to pro' ide
a bit of information about wet-
lands, their function, their
importance, and some of the
regulations %we ha'e regarding
wetlands. A failure to appreciate
the value of wetlands has led to
a loss of about half of all wet-
lands that existed here when
Florida became a state in 1845
In non-scientific terms, a
wetland is an area of land that is
penodicall) underwater and is
characterized bN specific tpes
of soil and %egetation. A portion
of the official state definition of
wetlands reads ""Wetland" .
means those areas that are inun-
dated or saturated b\ surface
water or ground water at a fre-
quenc\ and a duration sufficient
to support. and i that.) under nor-
mal circumstances do support. a
prevalence of vegetation t[pi-
cally adapted for life in saturat-
ed soils."
There are two common itNpes
of wetlands: swamps and
marshes. Swamps are wetlandss
that are dominated b\ trees and
shrubs. Marshes are wetlands
that are dominated b\ grasses.
cattails and other herbaceous
species. Wetlands can have
either fresh or brackish isaltis
water.
Wetlands are nature's kid-
neys. The\ filter and remove
nutrients and contaminants
from water as it flows through
the wetland. Pollution that is
dissolved or suspended in the

essential to the surn \ial of some
endangered and threatened
species. such as the wood stork
and the Flonda panther.
There are several threats to
the continued existence of w\et-
lands, aside from drainage for
the purpose of development.
First. the\ are becoming
increasingly infested w ith
plants that are not native to

Excessive pollution bN chemi-

wetland. destroy\ ing its filtering
capaciis and changing the t pes
of plants that grow\ there.
Construction near wetlandss can
cause this increase in pollution
and can change the way water
moves, which can lead to dra-
matic changes in the nature of
wetlands.
Activities in wetlands, espe-
cially dredging andor filling of
wetlands, are regulated by a
number of agencies, primarily
the Department of
Environmental Protection and


the U.S. ArmN Corps of
Engineers iCorps.i though
water management districts.
counties and cities ma\ also be
insolhed. It should be noted
that federal agencies do not
always define %wetland bound-
aries the same as state and local
agencies, which are regulated
bN Chapter 62-340 of the
Florida Administrative Code.
In peninsular Florida. wet-
land regulation occurs through
the Environmental Resource
Permitting iERPI program.
DEP review s and takes agency
action on the following t\ pes of


applications: docking
facilities. boardwalks,
shore protection struc-
tures and piers. This
list is not all inclusive.
The Corps are respon-
sible for evaluating

r. I Lake Placid's Hugo Medina 181 sprints past John Allison of McKeel
Academy. Friday night.


DRAGONS
Continued from ID
took ouer in the second half.
Torres' goal .as the result of
some fantastic foot ork
MAaneunering forward and back
to shake a defender. Torres
launched a high, arching shot
from the left side to the richt-
upper corner of the goal from
18 ) ards out to tie the game
It was then the Dragon
defense's time to shine as the
ball stayed in Lake Placid tern-
tory for a spell. Moore had a
great save to keep the game tied
until Peachee broke past Diego
Vasquez. who lost his tooting,
and drote the ball home from
point-blank range.
The second yellow. card
appeared with six minutes to
play %then McKeel defender
Chris Meadow s ran smack into
Medina. who doubled o'er in
pain and was out the remainder
of the game. It w as a short-
handed affair to begin w ith for
the Dragons .who %ere sh\ a
S fe, pla- ers because of disLipih-
nary suspensions
Lake Placid had a few close
calls on offense as the game
\wound domn. getting a pair oft
shots on goal in iniurN time. But
the Wildcats were simnpl too
hungrN for a min and closed it
out with little fanfare
"Those guys are good." said
McKeel coach Dan Backes
after the %in. "We'll be seeing
them again i n the postseasoni.
you can count on that."
Lake Placid coach Josh
Virkler was proud of the iaN
his boss played but knew the\
mighi'"e offered stiffer compe-
tition w\ ith a complete roster

"Tlie\ played it:h a lot of
heart." aid Virkler. "'The three
players w\ho were suspended
probably would hate made a
difference. but I like the wayN
%we mo\e tortard quickly, We
ha.e more speed on this team
than te'"e had for a long time.
We get out of the back fast. %te
get the ball to the w ings last. v\e
get the ball to our forwards and
\e came close to scoring a cou-
ple ot goals We onl, got one.
but the potential for more \was
there."
