Chicago residents Nathan David, 10, and his little brother Danny, 2, play along the shoreline of Lake Jackson on Wednesday afternoon at
Veterans Beach in Sebring. About 50 yards in the distance, a sandbar allows birds a place to congregate.



Little concern over Lake



Jackson's water level 'drop'


By RIC UUENBERG
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING More than 80 lakes dot
the Highlands County landscape, but none
of them fall under more scrutiny than
Lake Jackson's more than 3,000 acres.
Travelers on U.S. 27 and residents along
much of its shoreline see the lake every-
day, and lately sandbars extend conspicu-
ously farther and farther from its southern
shore.
Few county residents keep closer track
of Lake Jackson's life than Clell Ford, the
county's lakes manager. For about a
decade in Ford's office, the reports of rain-
fall and water quality have filled comput-
er files.


Lake Jackson's level

has dropped to'below

100 feet above sea

level.'
CLELL FORD, Highlands County Lakes Manager

The recent decline in the lake's level is
of little concern to Ford. Just before the
new year begins, he spread a dozen print-
outs on a meeting room table. These pages
showed rainfall totals per month, per year,


20-year median lake level values, lake
water quality, and lake clarity among
them.
Explaining these tracking reports, Ford
said with much higher than average rain-
falls the past few years, especially after
hurricanes in 2004 and 2005, residents are
accustomed to seeing Lake Jackson at the
brim.
"Lake Jackson's level has dropped to
below 100 feet above sea level," he said
referring to one of the several graphs. He
cautioned not to define a lake level as an
average. "You can look at what it normal-
ly would be at a certain time of the year,
but lakes are supposed to fluctuate."

Kid's mission accomplished


Grandmother's lesson in giving
repeated by 9-year-old granddaughter
By SUNNY K. ZENGLER
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING Alyssa Etheridge, 9, was able to complete her
mission Friday to spread goodwill throughout Highlands County.
When Etheridge was born, her collection of stuffed animals was
begun by her grandparents, Charles and. Joan Geary. All kinds of
critters made up her collection: pink poodles, penguins, bunnies
and bears. There were approximately 25 pieces in her collection.
Through the years, her grandma has worked with several of the
service oriented agencies in the Highlands County area, such as
Ridge Area Arc, which provides services for individuals with men-
tal and physical disabilities. She has been a role model for
Etheridge by helping others less fortunate than herself. As an offi-
cer of the Sebring Eagles and an active member of the Sebring
Moose, Joan Geary has participated in many holiday service activ-
ities over the years.
Alyssa is the daughter of Bill and Regina Etheridge of Sebring.
She attends Sun 'N Lake Elementary School.
According to her grandmother,"Alyssa wants to spread the
Christmas spirit." The local girl decided to giveaway her collection
"for this is the season to share."
This holiday season, Alyssa decided to follow her grandmoth-
er's example and share with other children less fortunate than her-
self. She gathered her stuffed animal collection together. She then
went to Florida Hospital Heartland Division and Highlands
Regional Medical Center, and donated several of her prized pos-
sessions to the children's areas of both hospitals on Christmas Eve.
Scheduling conflicts prevented her from completing her dona-
tion mission before Dec. 25. Etheridge, accompanied by her grand-
ma, made a final stopover at the Children's Advocacy Center in
Sebring this last Friday, when she surrendered more of her collec-
tion, so it could be shared with the nearly 100 children the
Children's Advocacy Center serves. Jeffrey Roth, director of the
Children's Advocacy Center, happily accepted Etheridge's gener-
ous donation on behalf of Highlands County's Children's Services

for new year

News-Sun
While many Highlands
County residents will be ring-
ing in the New Year tonight at
various celebrations with fami-
ly and friends, others will be
safely watching the ball drop
from Times Square in New
York on their televisions.
However a person chooses to
start 2007 is entirely up to them
but some Highlands County
residents have already given
some deep thought of what
they wish for or want to do in
the new year to make things
even better than last year.
Things that seem to be at the
top of the list include safety,
health issues and unity.

he wants to

"For the New Year, I plan to

said.
"I think it's

first. The blackout did not darken the mood of
area shoppers, however, as city stores had strong
sales on the popular shopping day.
The year in changes
The rapid growth of Sebring outpaced the
city's traffic flow, which meant the inevitable
beginning of road construction on U.S. 27. Work
began Oct. 2 on three different turning' lanes on
the highway's northbound lanes, causing lane
blockages and traffic snarls during the high traf-
fic season. The work, underway at Sparta Road,
Hammock Road, and Vicki Drive, is expected to
be completed in February.
The headquarters of the Sebring Police and
Fire departments underwent renovation projects.
While the work at the police headquarters is near-
ing completion, the work on the downtown fire
station renovation will force the department into
portable buildings for several months.
The Sebring Post Office at 518 N. Ridgewood
Drive reopened this year after its large renovation
project was completed. A new city-owned skate
park, on Hawthorne Drive across from Charlie
Brown Park, opened in May and proved
immensely popular with local skaters, as 200 reg-
istered in the park's first two months of opera-
tion.
Sebring's two major hospitals continued to
grow in 2006. Florida Hospital completed a 36-
bed expansion in January, and broke ground on
its new child learning center in May. Highlands
Regional Medical Center began a massive over-
haul of its emergency room and installed a state-
of-the-art CT scanner in October.
The year in awards
Several outstanding people, businesses, organ-
izations (and plays) were honored throughout the
year.
Wells Dodge Chrysler received the Highlands
County Economic Development Commission's
Business Excellence Award, on the same day it
celebrated its 75th anniversary. Linda Crowder,
the founder and director of the Children's
Museum of the Highlands, received the Judge
Clifton M. Kelly Champion for Children award
in October.
The ever-popular "Grease" dominated at the
Highlands Little Theatre's Zenon Awards. The,
play picked up 10 awards at the theater's annual
awards ceremony, including best play, director,
actor and actress.
Christopher Alan and Kristen Paradara won
top prizes in the two divisions of the Junior
Heartland Idol competition. In the competition
for the older folks, Rebekah Stephens was

Homeowners to host auditors OBITUARIES


Library audit report

available online, Carl
Cool asked to retire

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands County residents still
have questions about the library audit made pub-
lic a month ago.
The Highlands County Sheriff's Office
answered one question Thursday, declaring that
no criminal wrongdoing was found in "fraud
indicators" brought to light during an 18-month
audit of the Highlands County Library System
and Heartland Library Cooperative.
"How did management get this far off base in
not taking care of the shop?" Highlands
Homeowners Association chairman Jack Richie
said Friday, discussing questions that remain
unanswered. "They seem resolute that there has
been extremely poor management and manage-
ment should answer why."
Clerk of Courts L.E. "Luke" Brooker, and his
audit staff senior director of business services
Bob Jamison, Mary Wilson, senior internal audi-
tor, and Heather Woods, internal auditor will
explain the auditing process generally before
fielding questions specifically about the library
audit.
"We're going to try to educate the public,"
Richie said, explaining that 40-50 people typical-
ly attend the homeowners meetings. "We usually
have a full house, one or two commissioners and
other interested parties."
The Homeowners Association's next meeting
is 9 a.m. Monday, Jan. 8, at the Sebring Country
Estates Club House, 3240 Grand Prix Drive.
A public hearing before the county commis-
sion has been discussed but not scheduled, chair-
man C. Guy Maxcy said Thursday.
He is recommending to begin the hearing at 9
a.m. and continue as long as necessary to discuss
the full report.
For those who haven't purchased a copy of the
$38.55 audit report or borrowed a friend's, the


New model approve


By TREY CHRISTY
News-Sun
Whether an A or D, the way a
schools grades are determined
will change next year.
The U.S. Department of
Education has approved Florida
to use a new model to measure
student progress as part of a
new pilot program under the No
Child Left Behind Act.
"We are encouraged that the
U.S. Department of Education
is moving toward a more rea-
soned growth model approach
that gives schools credit for


progress in stut
over time," Na


report is now available online.
Jamison said Wednesday that fewer than 12
"concerned citizens" had called his office or
stopped by regarding the library audit. His office
has "sold" about six copies of the final report.
The Clerk of Courts' revamped Web page at
www.hcclerk.org now includes an Audit Reports
link.
Future audit reports will join the "Heartland
Library Audit Findings" link, currently the only
report available.
Jamison said past reports may be put on the
Web if time permits.
On Friday, only the executive summary and
the 61 findings were posted at the clerk's new
Web site. The six appendixes in the final report
(including censored screen shots of pornographic
Web sites) will be available online soon, he said.
Maxcy told the News-Sun in a past interview
that much of what transpired during and because
of the audit was a direct result of politics in the
clerk's and county's offices.
"That's hogwash," Richie said. "I think any-
body that has taken the time to read the audit and
get an explanation would realize that it has noth-
ing to do with politics."
When asked if Mary Myers should resign or be
dismissed, Richie said she took orders from
"higher up."
"I think it's time for some people to get out of
our county government and go enjoy their retire-
ment," Richie said. When pressed for specifics,
he continued, "I think it would be the gentleman-
ly thing to enjoy his retirement. Carl (Cool) has
done a tremendous job for Highlands County."
Richie said county administrator Cool was
once an asset and enjoyed an accomplished
career, but in recent years has tried to run the
county instead of administering the commission-
ers' bidding.
"It just looks like a big cover up with the hope

ly 10 states will use the alterna-
tive method of tracking
progress in a trial period.
The statistics in most states
are currently tracked using a
method called adequate yearly
progress.
This current NCLB rule
forces states to measure a stu-
dents progress by comparing
them to last years students.
The growth model takes a
students scores from the previ-
ous year and compares them


of just comparing last years stu-
dents in that grade with the new
ones.
"The implementation phase
of NCLB has highlighted a crit-
ical void in assessing student
progress under the existing ade-
quate yearly progress model,"
Weaver said in a statement on
the NEA Web site. "Well-
designed growth models more
accurately track and measure
individual students test scores
over time, comparing actual
and expected rates of growth."
Under the NCLB Act statis-
tics are tracked for various
groups, not only by grade but
sub-population as well.
Racial minorities, disabled
students and students learning
English are all subgroups
whose achievements are
tracked by the NCLB Act to
assure gains are being made
across the board and not just in
certain areas.
If a school is making
progress as a whole, but not in
these different categories, it is
enough to keep them from
meeting the set requirement for
Title I funds.
Using the growth model
helps strengthen accountability,
the NEA and U.S. Secretary of
Education suggest.

By KEVIN J. SHUTn
News-Sun
LORIDA Highlands
County staff gave their
approval in March for a special
exception for a grass airstrip on
95 acres between Istokpoga
Shores and Cowhouse Road.
The Planning Department's
support of the JFK of Lorida's
proposed private fly-in commu-
nity was conditioned with
seven restrictions its use is to
be limited to owners, extended
family and invited guests; hours
of operation to be from sunrise
to sunset; no runway lights; no
craft larger than twin engine
planes and/or with a maximum
passenger capacity of six; no
maintenance of planes not
owned or operated by home-
owners; no commercial opera-
tions or fuel sales; and take-
off/approach paths over resi-
dential areas to be more than
500 feet.
But, before the March 14,
2006, hearing before the coun-
ty's board of adjustment, JFK's
owners withdrew their applica-
tion.
A new hearing is scheduled
for 3 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9, in
the commission chambers, 600
S. Commerce Ave., Sebring.
John Lowe, of Sebring, Fred
Paine, of Wisconsin, and Ken
Diaz, of LaBelle, comprise JFK
and it's their intent to develop
an aviation community of eight
two-acre residential lots lining
the east side of a north-south
grass runway, Lowe said
Tuesday.
But, armed with more than
200 signatures, Rosemary Wolf
is leading the Istokpoga Shores
community's charge to ground
JFK's plans.
Public safety and environ-
mental concerns from Florida
scrub land to noise pollution top
the list of reasons why JFK
shouldn't be allowed to land an
airstrip in their backyards, Wolf
told the News-Sun Nov. 20.
"The problem is, if he gets
that grass airstrip in there, he
can do whatever he wants," she
said, making no bones that
Lowe's marijuana-smuggling
_99nyiction ..in federal, court
should have bearing on the
board of adjustment. "We're
not accusing him of doing any-
thing nefarious, but do you give
a pedophile a house by a day-
care?"
Lowe lost faith in govern-

ment after the three-month trial
that resulted in his nine years in
federal prison and seven years
on parole.
He was swept up in a govern-
ment hit and a foreign national,
he said matter-of-factly,
describing his trial as "the most
horrible experience of my life"
while maintaining that he was-
n't then, and is not now, a
smuggler.
"I'm sure they don't like my
history," Lowe said of Wolf and
other people expected to fill the
auditorium at the January hear-
ing. "I don't like the history
either. ... This is a scar that will
be with me forever."
But, that was 20 years ago.
He acknowledges that his
Federal Aviation
Administration-issued pilot's
license was revoked with his
conviction.
Lowe said he has a commer-
cial pilot license, having had to
submit to the full testing
process again in 2000, and is
legal to fly single and multi-
engine planes that are land- or
sea-based.
Lowe's certification could
not be found at the faa.gov reg-
istry in searches of LaBelle
(where he resided for 10 years
before moving to Sebring),
Sebring and Florida.
-Kathleen Bergen, FAA exter-
nal communications, said drug
convictions involving aircraft
result in a lifetime ban on
licensing. Drug offenses that
don't include an aircraft result
in a one-year suspension.
According to a 1988 court
document, Lowe was convicted
of altering a plane in 1984 to
import marijuana into the
United States.
"The county was pretty
happy we put those stipulations
in our application," Lowe said,
noting that residents' concerns
about night flying, commercial
operations and excessive traffic
are for naught.
He anticipates less than a half
dozen flights during a weekend,
fewer during the week.
"We don't care if God want-
ed to fly one in here," Wolf
said. "We cannot and will not
accept an airstrip over our
heads."
Under normal conditions,
Lowe countered, takeoffs will


be to the north then east, away
from Istokpoga Shores and
most rural structures.
Likewise, landing aircraft
will approach the runway from
the north, again minimizing the
threat to homes closes the pro-
posed strip's southern tip, Lowe
said.
In the event that weather or
other unforeseen conditions
require a southward takeoff,
Lowe said the craft will imme-
diately bank to the left flying
over a single home, which
belongs to the family from
whom JFK purchased the prop-
erty.
Lowe estimated that 25 acres
of the 95 on JFK's property will
be become runway or residen-
tial lots with homes and hang-
ers.
The balance will remain
scrub lands, he said, including a
portion on which he wanted to
build a home but was overrid-
den by his wife who prefers
their current lakeside residence.
"We've got a right to do what
we want with our land so long
as we comply with zoning,"
Lowe said, suggesting that the
half-million dollar homes in his
development will enhance
home values in the area.
Wolf, a retired airline atten-
dant, said property values
would suffer because of JFK's
grass landing strip.

YEAR
Continued from 1A
debt."
"I'm too old to have New
Year's resolutions," Lester
Roberts, director of the Avon
Park National Association for
the Advancement of Colored
People, said. "I live one day at a
time. I am not going to change
anything now."
Jenny Curtis, of Sebring,
would like to "get moved into
our new home and be healthy
and happy."
Diana Hirsh Walker, founder


of the Heartland Idol, said "I
moved to Highlands County
nine years ago, because of the
small town atmosphere. So my
resolution would be that with
all the growth that Sebring is
experiencing, the community
never forgets the personal
charms that founded this great
town and all the unique things
the town has to offer."
"My wish is that this neigh-
borhood would come together
in unity. We have been meeting
constantly, with the numbers
fluctuating up and down, but
there are good things being
done," Robert Saffold, presi-


dent of the
Washington


Comininittee,
said. "At our
SAFFOLD very next
meeting we are
going to put a slate together to
determine where we go next,
but we need to strive for unity."

MISSION
Continued from 1A
Foundation.
The Children's Advocacy
Center looks out for the inter-
ests of children and their fami-
lies when charges of abuse
again children are filed with a
law enforcement agency.
Alyssa has set a pace for
everyone to follow and with the
coming of a new year maybe it
will be one filled with peace on
earth arid goodwill to 'all
mankind.


LAKE
Continued from 1A
Looking at it this way, the
20-year New Year's lake level
average is 100.8 feet above sea
level. As of New Year's Day
2007, the lake level stands at
about 99.8 feet, down a foot
from the average, mostly, due to
a drier than usual summer rain-
fall season. Without August's
more than a foot of rainfall, the
2006 rainy season clouds
dropped less than 13 inches,
less than 30 percent of the
annual rainfall of about 45 inch-
es.
From January to May, about
seven inches had fallen, com-
pared to a 20-year annual aver-
age of more than 12 inches.
"A year ago in December,
Lake Jackson was at 102.8 feet
above sea level, as high as it
gets," Ford said. "There is out-
flow structure that prevents it
from getting higher than that,"
he noted.
Especially after a series of
hurricanes and tropical storms
the majority of months in 2005


the lake's level lapped at the top
of the outflow structure, a
whopping two feet above the
annual average.
"What people are seeing and
remembering is that the lake
had been so high for so long,"
Ford said.
Sure the lake level is down,
but still above the historic lower
levels at this time of year.
Taking look at another of
Ford's graphs, travelers and res-
idents around the lake should
see remarkable water clarity.
LAKEWATCH data shows only
1996 was water clarity better
than it is now. That year, the
LAKEWATCH Secchi disk
could be seen more than 11 feet
underwater. This year, the disk
became obscured at about 10.5
feet, much improved from
1999's 6.9 feet.
With all the runoff from
heavier rainy seasons and hurri-
canes, water clarity suffered,
although Ford credited storm
water runoff control for keeping
the lake as clear as it was and
helping restore this year's clari-
ty.
LAKEWATCH Lake Jackson


data also tracked general water
quality improvement since
1998, at the depths of the 100-
year drought. Using the state's
Impaired Waters Rule Trophic
State Index, Lake Jackson's
quality is the best it's been in
almost 10 years.
So, Sebring's beloved watery
centerpiece is healthy, but what
about those sandbars stretching
farther from the lake's southern
shoreline?
Ford, who's studied nature's
waterways in at least two states,
has an idea. He suggested those
hurricanes with their northeast
winds may have actually push
sand against the shoreline.
He has said many times lakes
are living things and has insist-
ed just as often lakes "fluctu-
ate."
Watching Lake Jackson,
Ford said, "The bowl is still the
same size but the shape is
changing," his observation sug-
gesting people around the lake
watch.

TOFFIU' IT

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Stranger in a

strange land
I'm not sure what I had
been expecting, but walking
into the bingo hall at the
Knights of Columbus Council
5441 in Sebring the other day I
was caught by surprise.
It was just so atmospheric
and alien. Like walking into a
Star Trek convention, where
everyone is caught up in a
shared ritual and obsession,
speaking a language all their
own.
I loved it.
Players were choosing their
seats prior to registering.
Marking their places by lining
up stuffed dolls, or plastic fig-
ures, or lucky charms of every
sort. Some players had elabo-
rate carrying cases for their
bingo paraphernalia. Some had
crowds of colorful ink contain-
ers arranged before them. The
result was table settings made
to look homelike and perma-
nent.
The ink containers have
broad, round sponge pads
designed for easy use. One
brand is a tribute to Elvis
Presley and has a photograph
of the king of rock 'n' roll
shrink-wrapped on'the bottle.
I quickly discovered that
bingo players are both super-
stitious and territorial. Anne
Aydelotte, for example, has
been playing bingo at the
Knights of Columbus since
- 1979, and has been sitting in
the same seat every bingo
See LAND, page 11A


Bingo caller


Running bingo can be hard work


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Andy Mish has been calling bingo
games for the Knights of Columbus for about three
years, ever since he moved up to Highlands County
from Palm Beach after he retired.
He loves being a part of the Knights of Columbus
Council 5441 bingo hall team.
The Knights of Columbus is a service organization
founded by Father Michael J. McGivney in 1882.
Members must be practicing Roman Catholics.
The organization's bingo operation is strictly to raise
funds for charity. In addition to grants given out year
round, and a robust scholarship program that provides
thousands of dollars to worthy graduating seniors at all
three high schools, one game every night is specifical-
ly dedicated to a local charity. Except for the $50 prize,
and 10 percent set aside for expenses, all money raised
goes directly to a local charity.
As the number caller, Mish's responsibilities are
huge. Players are stern task masters, he said, they
expect the numbers to be presented quickly, accurately
and loudly.
"There's not much delay of gratification," Mish said,
softening the words with a mischievous smile, as he
prepared his board for the night.
He knows many of the players by name and jokes
with them between games.
Some players, setting up near his booth, tease him,
shaking their fingers at him, asking for good numbers
the way weathermen are asked for sunshine.
Mish sits at a large desk-like, computerized machine.
The main flat surface is a metal grid which holds the
balls as they are selected.
To the right, on the side of the main body, is a
Plexiglas bin which is filled with the bingo balls. There
is an air blower, and a rotating rake which keep the
balls bouncing and in the air.
A tube allows a ball to pop up through an opening,
when Mish flips a switch.
He then takes the ball and puts it on a little rack that
holds it steady for a closed circuit camera. That broad-
casts the ball's image to the monitors placed around the
hall.
Then he calls out the number, takes the ball and puts
it into its spot on the grid there is a square for every
ball.
By pushing down on the ball, a sensor lights the
scoreboard, so players can keep track of the balls in
play. At the end of a game, Mish presses another
switch, and the bottom drops out so the balls fall back
into the Plexiglas bin to be stirred up again.
The machine also has a 'timer, so the caller can leave


Photos by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
The bingo hall at the Knights of Columbus Council 5441 in Sebring is the biggest game in town. Everyone who
works the games Wednesday night is a volunteer. The Knights have donated about $95,000 to local charities, all of it
a direct result of bingo.


exactly 15 seconds between calls.
Once someone yells bingo, the caller freezes the
game, while a volunteer runner checks on the player's
card. If the numbers seem to match, the card is brought
to the caller who double checks it against the comput-
er, which can identify a winning card in fractions of a
second.
Mish said it was odd, but the larger the crowd, the
faster the game.
Don Schnoor was recently elected Grand Knight,of
this council, which means he serves as its director.
Mike Basile is the game's banker,.and primary trainer.
"(Running a bingo game) is a lot of work," Basile
said, "but it's not only worth it, it's fun."
Schnoor said the council has big dreams, mostly
made possible by bingo.: .
In 2007, the Knights of Columbus plan on a building
drive to raise money to construct a new, larger, more
substantial structure. The new building, in addition to


being a bingo hall and meeting center, will double as
Central Florida's only special needs hurricane shelter.
In order to raise initial capital the Knights intend t9 sell
some of their property that fronts on U.S. 27.
"We plan on having things like oxygen ports built in,
with wind resistance up to 140 miles per hour,"
Schnoor said, adding the center would be state of the
art.
"We submitted our plans to the state and have
already been awarded a $200,000 grant towards the
specialized equipment. We are going to make this hap-
pen."
In the mean time, the bingo hall is open every
Wednesday. Schnoor said the hall will also bring back
Friday night bingo in the new year. Doors open at 3:30
p:m., and the first game begins at 5:45 p.m. Play con-
tinues to about 9 p.m. The Knights of Columbus hall is -
at 900 U.S. 27 North. For more information call 385-
0987.

LAND
Continued from 9A
night for the last 10 years.
She is a lovely woman, deli-
cate and petite, but when she
said she'd.break my arm if I
tried to take her seat, even
though I was teasing and she
was laughing, I half believed
her.
The crowd was more mixed
than I had expected. While the
majority were 55 or older,
there was a significant sprin-
kling of much younger people.
Most players are regulars, and
greet each other as friends.
The main room is very large
and crowded, with long tables
set up in rows running down
the room, instead of side to
side. There is another room,
about half the size but still sub-
stantial, that opens up to the
ball caller's right. It also has
rows of tables.
Don Schnoor, the Grand
Knight, said the bingo hall can
seat 220 and averages about
180 people.
At strategic places through-
out both rooms, television
monitors are mounted high up
on the walls. I thought that
meant television programs or
sports events were broadcast
during the evening.
I couldn't have been more
wrong. They are used to show
the bingo ball on deck, just
prior to its number being called
out loud.
Players may anticipate the
next ball by checking their
cards ahead, but they may not
black out a number until the
caller announces it.
Up at the head of the main
room is a raised booth, well lit.
It is where the bingo ball caller
sits.
Above the booth, and on the
opposite wall, and on one of
the walls in the extra room, are
large, lighted boards which dis-
play all the information a play-
er will need as the game pro-
gresses; the numbers called,
the pattern being used, how
many balls are in play and so
forth. They resemble score
boards in athletic stadiums.
Next to the raised booth is a
concession cagei where supplies
Sre available for sale. The
banker and his money runners


operate out of it as well.
Behind the cage and the call-
ing booth, separated from the
bingo hall except for a service
window, is a full kitchen.
Meals and hot and cold snacks
are for sale throughout the
evening. French fries are a
favorite.
The entire enterprise appears
professional and well organ-
ized. Schnoor said the profits
go in small amounts to many
different local charities.
Everyone who works at the
bingo hall is a volunteer,
except for one paid employee
who keeps the place clean and
ship shape. Schnoor said it
takes seven people to get play-
ers registered and three to run
the floor, plus the banker and
the caller. That didn't include
the volunteers in the kitchen.
I couldn't call bingo num-
bers, because the caller, by city
ordinance, has to be a member
of whatever charity is conduct-
ing the bingo game, but I was
allowed to shadow every work-
er in the hall, and once got to
deliver winnings.
When I gave Evelyn
Rhoades her $50 prize I asked
her what she liked best about
bingo.
"You mean other than win-
ning?" she asked, laughing out
loud.
Bingo is a highly regulated
and overseen enterprise. That
is probably for the best,
because bingo at heart is all
about money both in terms
of what is collected and what is
given out.
At the Knights of Columbus,
each game has a winning prize
of $50. There are three $200
jackpots a night (all that the
law allows), and a hot ball
game with another $200, that
are given out in addition to the
regular prizes.
Of course more people leave
money behind than take it
away, but ironically, that is
another of the game's allures.
Just about everyone I spoke to
that evening mentioned the
good works the bingo money
does.
"We all love giving back,"

Anne Aydelotte has been playing

1979. She has been sitting in the
same seat for 10 years, and has
a set way of going about her
business. She chooses her
bracelets with care because they
bring her luck.

ties, all because of bingo.
True, the game isn't for
everyone. When balls are in
play there is a seriousness of
purpose and intensity of focus
that is anything but playful.
For example, speaking is pro-
hibited. Most players play mul-
tiple cards, with some playing
as many as 19 or 20 at once.
That means a person has to be
quick, accurate and focused -
no distractions. I watched
hands flash, as ink bottles were
wielded like surgeons' scalpels,
cutting off first this number
then that, all under the pressure
of a timed clock. I began to see
the fascination. Especially with
the fever of winning and the
thrill of yelling "bingo" added
in.
Between games people
relax. Turning to neighbors,
leaning back in chairs to talk
over their shoulders, or stretch-
ing their legs, the sound of
conversation bubbles all over

Don't forget




to say thanks


* News-Sun correspondent
Pauline Au Yang provides eti-
quette tips for readers on the
last Sunday of each month in
the Lifestyle section.

The rush to find the perfect
Christmas gift is over, the pack-
ages delivered, the deliriously
grateful recipient responded
appreciatively, the ingrates
complained, exchanges have
been made as satisfaction filled
the air.
Regardless of how you feel
about the gift you've received
this Christmas, you are required
to write and send "Thank you
cards or notes." No e-mails
please. You say "I don't have
the time." In order to purchase
your gifts, someone had to
brave traffic jams and crowded
stores, someone may have had
to give up their lunch time,
missed appointments, or return
to work late in order to get you
the gifts.
Whether or not you like the
gift, it's your responsibility to
say thanks, not just verbally,
but written as well.

Grandma, grandpa, mom,
dad, aunts, uncles, other rela-
tives and friends deserve to be
thanked.
Happy holidays. Have a

Since this column is sup-
posed to appear on New Year's
Eve, the temptation of course is
to do a fast look at 2006 and
give my opinions, or at least
poke fun at some stuff.
Part of the problem with that
is my memory, or more specifi-
cally, my lack of memory. A lot
of 2006 is a blur for me. I like to
say that I have a severe case of
sometimesrs" which means
that sometimes my memory
works, and sometimes it does-
n't. So the following list
includes the things that stuck in
my memory long enough for
me to write about it (or at least
crossed my path as I surfed the
Internet):
The hurricane season:
Remember all the predictions
that we were going to blow
away, that this was going to be
the worst hurricane season in
years? We were understandably
antsy after two nasty years of
storms.
What we got was less than
nothing. I wonder how many
Floridians looked at their stash


son and checked
the expiration dates
to see if they'd last
until next year?
Politics:


LAURA'S LOOK

Laura Ware


Republicans took a
licking at the ballot
box this year. A lot of the dam-
age they took was self-inflicted.
But then, the Democrats have
John Kerry to show that they
can still put their foot in their
mouths.
The list of names of presi-
dential wannabes is already
long. Just this week John
Edwards threw his hat into the
ring. Be prepared for the list to
get even longer in 2007.
And with all these people
running around running for
president a year early, who's
going to be left to run the coun-
try?
Iraq: Bad news, we're still
there, still trying to make order
out of chaos. Good news is
Saddam Hussein may finally be
held accountable for his crimes
against his fellow human
beings.


that was as sleazy
as anything. Slunk
out almost as
quickly when the
public had an


attack of good taste
and raised a hue
and cry over the thing.
United 93: A dramatic and
effective retelling of the plane
that was possibly aimed at the
Capitol building on Sept. 11,
2001, but crashed into a
Pennsylvania field instead. I
wish every American would
watch it.
Former President Gerald
Ford passes away: He stepped
into the presidency without
anyone voting him into the
office or the vice-presidency.
He helped the nation recover
from the cesspool that had been
Watergate. He was rewarded by
being voted out of office at the
first opportunity. Not the great-
est of presidents, but he gave us
what we needed when we need-
ed it.
Hundreds of strange news
stories: I am so grateful for
- T 1.*-1- A


column would be a lot harder to
write.
Iran defies the world and
works to develop nukes: One
word for this one. Eek.
Celebrities and politicians
say stupid things: One bad part
of being famous is everybody
can hear you when you have a
bad case of stupid. Just ask John
Kerry, Mel Gibson, and
Michael Richards.
Pluto gets kicked out o the
list of planets: It is now in a cat-
egory called "dwarf planets." A
lot of people griped about it, but
if Pluto is upset at being demot-
ed, it's keeping it to itself.
Well, that's my highlights of
2006. I'm sure 2007 will bring
highlights of its own, though I
expect, like 2006, people will
say and do stupid things. And
I'll be sure to let you know
about them. Unless I'm the one
who says and does them.

New Year's resolution Ownership Society


Here's a way for President
Bush to salvage his presidency
in the New Year: Promote the
principles of his Ownership
Society again. If more people
owned things, they'd be as mis-
erable as I am, and America
would be a better place.
I had my first taste of owner-
ship 11 years ago after buying a
country house that made
Herman Munster's place look
like a Trump estate. Renovating
it was awful enough, but all hell
really broke loose when my
father and I began work on the
bathroom.
The bolts that secured the
commode to the floor had bro-
ken. I raced to the hardware
store to buy new bolts. We
spent an hour installing them.
We slowly lifted the commode
into place and fished the bolts
through the bolt holes. But the
bolts were too short!
"Son of a ...," said my father.
"The idiots gave us the
wrong bolts!" I said.
I raced back to the hardware
store. We toiled another hour
and the new bolts worked. But a
second problem occurred: the
wax goop that seals the com-
mode to the sewage pipe wasn't
thick enough.
"Son of a ...," said my father.
"The idiots gave us the
wrong goop!" I said.
I raced back to the hardware
store. With the commode final-


ly secured and TALKI
sealed, we pro- TALKI
ceeded to a higher Tom
level of suffering:
reattaching the
water fittings.
You see, water
fittings are designed to not fit.
After several attempts to make
them fit, we stripped the
threads. This resulted in a leak
that made Niagara Falls look
like a lap pool.
After several hours of this
misery, my father and I com-
pleted the bathroom. I thought
then that the worst of ownership
was behind me, unaware it was
just getting warmed up.
One day, while weeding the
planter, I was attacked by
ground bees. Someone told me
the solution was to pour a cup
of gasoline into the bee hole,
then light it. I poured two cups
for good measure. I wisely
moved the 2.5-gallon gasoline
canister 10 feet away, and then
lit a match. It was then that I
learned an important lesson
about gasoline.
Gasoline doesn't burn.
Gasoline fumes burn. They
burn because they are flamma-
ble. And they are especially
flammable when you create a
massive carburetor in a dirt hole
in your planter.
As I neared the hole, I heard
a giant "woooof," the sound
gasoline fumes make when they


NG TOM
Purcell


explode. A 15-foot
flame shot up the
side of my freshly
painted house. But
I was more con-


cerned about the
flame that was now
coming out of the air hole on
the top of the 2.5-gallon gaso-
line canister I wisely sat 10 feet
away.
I grabbed the giant Molotov
cocktail and launched it as far
from the house as I could, caus-
ing an explosion that would fill
an al-Qaeda trainee with envy.
It took me an hour to douse all
the flames and keep the neigh-
borhood from burning down.
Since then my fortunes have
improved, allowing me to buy
stocks that are now worth much
less than I paid for them. I own
my own health insurance poli-
cy, too, and its premium is ris-
ing faster than the flames that
nearly torched my house.
And I've become a landlord,
one of the most pleasurable


aspects of ownership a man can
know. (Don't ask about the sep-
tic tank, or how I straddled it for
two days with a spade shovel to
dig out enough earth so that the
new lid would fit.)
Ownership is a grand concept
and Bush could resuscitate his
presidency by promoting it.
More ownership will make
Americans demand simpler,
lower taxes and other common-
sensical reforms that make it
easier to own things reforms
Republicans used to embrace.
The economy will boom and
Bush's approval ratings will
soar.
Our assets will grow in
value,. too. We can sell them at
great profit, retire and become
Democrats and finally enjoy
life for once, while everybody
else takes care of us.

Make working on the mind the


first New Year's Resolution


The start of a
new year is here,
which means it's
time to make that
list of resolutions.


Of course, we all
start out with the
best of intentions with a sin-
cere, heartfelt desire to change.
One thing that I'm discover-
ing is my mindset keeps sabo-
taging the change. I can have
the best diet plan in the world,
but if I allow my old way of
thinking to hold me captive to
my old patterns of living, I
won't keep that diet. So maybe
it's the mind that should be
worked on first?
So, I began a class a few
months ago, hoping to be some-
what more improved as a per-
son by the end of next year. At
the end of every year I ask the
Lord to not allow me to be in
the same position by this time
next year, which can mean
emotionally, mentally, spiritual-
ly, physically or whatever
areas) of my life that need to


change. Change is
not fun, as we all
know, but it is nec-
essary for life to
continue. Seasons


change, our bodies
change, relation-
ships change, work changes
eventually and the list goes on
and on.
It's the Celebrate Recovery
class, (the book was written by
Rick Warren, who also wrote
"Purpose Driven Life"). It is
from 7-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday
evenings at Union
Congregational Church in Avon
Park and is available for any
kind of challenge, from food to
anger management to ... you
name it. The issue I'm focusing
on now is co-dependency (peo-
ple are grouped according to the
issue, and men are separated
from the women).
So maybe from time to time
I'll give updates on how I'm
progressing. It's a relief to
know I'm not alone in my
struggles and there is a safe


place to vent or get some ideas
on how to grow as a person.
That's the one change or res-
olution on my list because until
I can get me out of the way,
there won't be room for the new
things God wants to bring into
my life.
I think too many times I've
blamed God for the position
I'm in, but haven't made the
changes on my end so He could
bring in new people, opportuni-
ties, etc. It's like cleaning out a
database on a computer to make
room for the new information to
be stored. It can only hold so
much before it has to be cleaned
out and some of the old pro-
grams need to be taken off as
well.
May this fresh new year, this
clean slate God has blessed us
with, be a year of growth in
every area of your lives.

For the sake of argument


John 15:13 -
Greater love hath SNAPSi
no man than this, TR
that a man lay
down his life for A. Kennet
his friends. (Jesus)

Perhaps the sad-
dest words in Scripture or
even any recorded in human
experience were those that
passed between the Father and
the Son on that last night in the
garden when the Son begged to
have the bitter cup that lay
before him taken away
(Matthew 26:39).
Of course we are not privy to
every interchange that occurred
within the timeless relationship
between these Two, but it is
most probablethat that was the
only prayer of the Son's that the
Father ever had to deny. Would
it have been denied had there
been any other way under heav-
en to purchase our salvation?
Just for the sake of argument,
mind you, let's say a man even
more righteous than Job could
have been found: a perfectly
righteous man. We know such a
person has not existed in the
train of Adam, but bear with me
here.
Didn't Jesus Himself allow
the possibility that a man could
lay down his life for his
friends? Yes he can in this phys-
ical world, but not in the realm
of the soul.
Let me tell you why even a


HlI
U.
Ih


perfect man, if one
OTS OF could have existed,
TH could not have
bought man's sal-
Hannum vation; why there
was no alternative
to the sacrifice of
Jesus.
A life offered up for the sins
of all mankind would have to
meet criteria of both intensity
and extensity, and no natural
man is capable of either of
these.
Intensity: No single human
could offer up a life experience
encompassing the range from
the height of glory to the depth
of degradation experienced
only collectively by the entire
race. So, sinlessness aside, no
one person has enough content
in one lifetime to offer up a life
representative of the entire race.
Consider Jesus. He voluntar-
ily forfeited His glory and pre-
rogatives as the Prince of
Heaven to offer up a sinless life
as a homeless servant-leader,
finally descending to the lowest
form of human degradation:
public execution as a falsely
accused criminal (Philippians
2:5-8).
Individually, some men and
women have offered up exalted
positions; others have accepted
privation, poverty, even martyr-
dom in the Lord's service. No
one person has done it all. Nor
has any mortal human been in a
position to willingly fall so far


because none has ever come
from such a height. Only Jesus
could offer up such an intense
sacrifice.
Extensity: Could a single
human offer himself as a sacri-
fice for the sins of all who ever
lived from Adam until the end
of the age? Judicially, can a
man be held accountable for
offenses committed when he
was not alive? Not likely.
Consider Jesus: The only
One clothed in human flesh
who has ever claimed to have
been alive throughout the entire
history of the human race:
"Before Abraham was, I am."
(John 8:58.) We also see Him in
John's record of the end times,
the book of Revelation. He
could legitimately claim, "This
life I offer up is for the sins of
all who have ever lived, are
now living or will yet live until
the end of the age." He and only
He can and does meet the crite-
rion of extensity.
As I write this on Christmas
Eve I view that precious little
babe in the manger with a mix-
ture of joy and sadness, realiz-
ing, on the one hand, the
unspeakable blessing He was
here to bring to us, and on the
other hand the terrible price He
would pay to accomplish that.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Everything

you need

"Do you have everything
you need?" came the ques-
tion from my parents many
years ago as I prepared to
catch a plane for a vacation.
"Yes," I replied.
Loading the suitcases into
the car and checking my
purse again to be sure I had
my ticket, we headed for the
airport. But, just as the air-
port came into view, I men-
tally began recounting my
pieces of luggage. All of a
sudden, I gasped.
"Oh, no," I cried. "My
garment bag is still hanging
over the bedroom door."
Checking our watches,
we made a swift turn around
to pick up the forgotten lug-
gage all the while pray-
ing that we wouldn't miss
the flight.
Miraculously, and with
legs carrying me like a
gazelle's, I boarded the air-
plane in the nick of time -
all luggage aboard. As the
plane lifted off, I finally
relaxed to enjoy thoughts of
what was to come.
We will be turning the
calendar page and soaring
into the New Year in just a
matter of hours. Perhaps the
same question should be
asked of us.
"Do you have everything
you need?"
Perhaps, some of us have
been very diligent at setting
goals. We would answer,
"Yes."
Others may have careful-
ly put aside some savings
for the unexpected and we,
too,.would answer, "Yes."
Maybe someone else is
simply eager to leave behind
2006 and forge ahead deter-
mined to forget the past.
And this person would say,
"Yes, I have all I need. I
have myself and my persist-
ence."
But, if any of us enters
2007 with goals, dreams,
financial success or determi-
nation alone, somewhere
along the way we'll realize
we're missing the most
important covering.
It may be hanging some-
where in one's memory
where it was once placed; it
could be buried under the
false security of posses-
sions; or it may be suspend-
ed in denial. But, in each
case, the missing clothing is
a one-size fits all wardrobe
God has provided, but that
we haven't taken for our
own.
"This is how God showed
his love among us: He sent
his one and only Son into
the world that we might live
through him," it says in I
John 4:9, NIV.
Christmas has just passed;
perhaps in a whirlwind of
activity for some or in a
painfully lonely time for
others. But, that isn't
Christmas.
Christmas is God giving
us everything he had so that
we could answer the ques-
tion and say, "Yes, I have
everything I need." That gift
is his Son, Jesus Christ.
Let's allow him to lead
the way as we march into
2007. Selah.

SEBRING
,T ako is not your ordinary
"' guy.
For starters, he looks like
Mr. Clean if Mr. Clean
dressed in black, and wore
blue reflective sunglasses
and had tattoos on each arm (roses
spring from a brick wall on the-right; a
lizard snakes up on the left).
Plus Tako has the heft of muscle, and
wears T-shirts that emphasize it. Gifted
with the kind of hands that make bas-
ketballs look small, he seems taller than
he is.
Greeting people in his office he is an
energized mix of attitude and courtesy
- both edgy and bourgeois.
Welcoming the attention, he is sure of
himself, but solicitous.
The conflicting energies make him
simmer as he sits. He seems too big for
the space.
Partly that is because his ego is
giant-sized too; his history as imposing
as his presence.
Told by him, his life is an epic tale of
twists and turns, flavored with violence;
a weave of reality and fantasy, with cir-
cumstances sometimes blending the
two.
He was born in Montreal, he said,
but was raised on Staten Island, N.Y.,
across the harbor from Manhattan.
His name is George Maniatakos, but
he'd rather it be forgotten, especially
the George part. He is Tako now, self-
made and proud of it.

Troubled life
He was difficult as a young man.
"I put my parents through a lot when
I was younger," he said. "I was always
the black sheep, always blamed even if
I wasn't around. I had a lot to give
back, that pushed me to succeed (later
on).
"When I got married, no one expect-
ed that. My family showed up for the
wedding just to be sure it wasn't a
hoax."
Tako waits politely between ques-
tions. Then he takes the answer and
runs with it, head lowered and focused,
like a rusher runs the football.
"I've done everything there is to do
in life," he said, everything there is to
do. I've been shot and stabbed. Forget a
story, you could write a book about
me."
He tells a romantic tale.
Building on the early, angry years,
and taking advantage of his physique,
Tako recovered from a drug infected
youth to became a bodyguard and
sometime bounty hunter, gaining in
notoriety as he evolved.
At one point, he said, during a man-
hunt for cop killers that was followed
by the European tabloid press, he was
called the James Bond of Greece.

Celebrity status
Tako began to get movie offers
He played to type as villains or vil-
lainous henchmen, appearing in "Miami
Vice," the movie, for example, where
he was killed by Colin Firth. While he
worked on "Transporter II," his main
scenes were cut from the film.


He also pursues work on television,
appearing on an episode of "Miami
Ink," a program currently running on
A&E. (It was during that episode that
the brick wall was added to an already
existing rose tattoo on his right fore-
arm.)
Tako pays attention to his acting
career and expects it to continue in the
future. He can tell people how many
times his commercial for Aleve has'rtfn
(12), and how many times his'episode
of Miami Ink has aired (30).
But acting is only a small part of
who he is.
That is because when Tako was
young he trained in auto body work.
Off and on, it is work he has done all
his life. It turned out he had a natural
ability. What for some people is work-
a-day ordinary, Tako is proud to have
raised to high art.

Sickasso Cycle Creations
From creating for himself, to creating
for friends, to creating a business, Tako
began building custom-made motorcy-
cles, ultimately becoming recognized
worldwide.
The name of his company says a lot
- Sickasso Cycle Creations (it rhymes
with Picasso). The cycles are unique,
exotic and sometimes twisted.
For example, Tako has built one bike
he calls the X-ray. Chrome ribs wrap
around a fuel tank that looks like lungs.
Support bars are bones and the head-
lamp is a shiny chrome skull.
The bike has won awards all over
See TAKO, page 6C


Tako's newest
bike is being
built for
Boston Red
Sox baseball
player Moe
Vaughn. The
bike, which he
calls the 'Moe
Street' is a
shiny burnt
orange color
and air-
brushed with
skulls and
tribal designs.


Tako carefully polishes the newly fabricated fender before it is bolted onto the bike.


Tako says his newest creation will be ready to ride around Jan. 11 and is meticulous about the bike's appearance.

ARTS & LEISURE




Rats saved lives; contributed to many deaths


"Ewwww! What is that
smell? I didn't know a bath-
room could smell this bad. Oh,
it's not the bathroom ... that
sickly sweet odor seems to be
coming from the air vents. Oh,
no ... we have a dead rat in our
attic."
Rats ... they live on every
continent except the Poles, and
flourish. Can you name one
good attribute about them? It is
true that they have been studied
extensively and found to be
excellent subjects for scientific
studies, including medical
research, so I suppose we could
say that they have saved lives.
We also could say that rats con-
tributed to the deaths of mil-
lions ... have you read about the
Black Death, really the bubonic
plague, that rats spread from
port to port all over Europe in


the Middle Ages'? Our many
history books on Europe in the
Middle Ages will enlighten you
on this subject. We're told that
the fleas on the rats were the
real carriers of that killer
plague, but without the mobility
of the rats, the fleas would not
have entered the city gates. Rats
continue today to foul and
destroy much needed food,
especially in the poorer coun-
tries that can least afford to lose
resources or battle disease.
For those who are fascinated
by the creatures, check out
"Professional Advice for the
Care of Cage-dwelling Pets,"
"The Rat: an Owner's Guide to
a Happy Healthy Pet,"
"Rodents and Rabbits" or "Care
of Uncommon Pets." Happy
rats are featured in "Mrs. Frisby
and the Cats of NIMH,"


"Cinderella's Rats"
and "Richard
Scarry's Pie Rats
Ahoy!"
For the rest of us,
how about
"Outbreak: Disease
Detectives at Work,"
which describes the
field of epidemiology
and its history, pre-
senting case studies
from the great
plagues of history to
modern killers like
ebola and AIDS,


LIBRARY

Carol
Hessel


including the spectre of bioter-
rorism, or how about "Rats!: the
Good, the Bad, and the Ugly"
and maybe "Rats: Observations
on the History and Habitat of
the City's Most Unwanted
Inhabitants."
Since the sight of these


rodents seem to cause
consternation and
downright screaming
reactions in most of
us, no wonder we
remember and can
probably imitate the
deliberate offensive-
ness of James


. r Cagney's famous
LINES insult line "You
- dirty rat."
'yn Thinking of reac-
link tions, we got an
- entirely different
feeling when we
viewed the display of the
Highlands Gem and Mineral
Club in the cases at the Sebring
Library, all during the last
month. Our December vertical
display theme was "When is a
Mineral a Gem?" Can it ever be
one? How can you know?


Thank you, Highlands Gem &
Mineral Club. Why not check
out Sebring's "Curious Lore of
Precious Gems," "Kremlin
Gold: 1000 Years of Russian
Gems and Jewels" or
Okeechobee's "Treasure
Hunter's Gem & Mineral
Guides to the U.S.A." You can
also reserve Okeechobee
Library's "Minerals and Gems:
A Color Treasury for Collectors
and Guide to Hunting
Locations." Lake Placid
Memorial Library has two titles
of interest: "Simon and
Schuster's Guide to Gems and
Precious Stones" and "Gems
and Precious Stones: The
Illustrated Identifier to Over
100 Gem Varieties." Avon Park
and Okeechobee libraries both
own the video Tell Me Why
series whose Volume 4 is titled


"Gems, Metals and Minerals."
DeSoto County Library
would be happy to loan you
"Gemstones," with more than
800 full-color pictures of cut
and uncut stones, organic gem-
stones, and precious metals.
You're invited to our second
free concert at Sebring Library
at 3 p.m. Saturday. Sponsored
by the Friends, guitarist Jack
Sanders will wow you.

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

News-Sun, Sunday, December 31, 2006


Capricorn: I
Aries (March 21 to April
20) Feeling fizzled out,
Aries? It could be because you
pushed yourself too hard party-
ing in the last few weeks. Take
the early part of this year to sit
back and relax.
Taurus (April 21 to May
21) Something that seems
insurmountable is actually
much easier to scale than you
think, Taurus. Think positively
and you'll reach great heights.
Gemini (May 22 to June
21) Think before you speak
when you're called to intervene
in a situation, Gemini. Though
you can offer words of wisdom,
let the other parties do the com-
promising.
Cancer (June 22 to July 22)
- There is success coming
your way, you just need to keep
your eyes peeled in anticipa-
tion, Cancer. However, there
are two sides to every coin, and
this good news also brings
some bad.


buckle down and stretch those dollars


Leo (July 23 to Aug. 23) -
You sometimes have to lose
before you can win, Leo, and
this will become apparent in the
next few days. Stay the course
and you will come out OK.
Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 22)
- If you have all the answers,
Virgo, why aren't people con-
stantly asking your advice?
Realize that you can learn a
thing or two from someone
else, especially this week.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 23)
- If you're in the mood for
romance, Libra, then you'll be
justly rewarded. Now is the
time to spend quality time with
that special person in your life
because soon you'll be busier
than ever.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22)
- Quiet contemplation is the
key this week, Scorpio. Mull
over all of your problems and
you'll soon find that you have
the solutions right at your fin-
gertips.


Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec.
21) Silence can be deafen-
ing, especially when you're
awaiting an outcome to a sticky
situation, Sagittarius. All you
can do is be patient and trust
that things will work out.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan.
20) A financial folly leaves
you coming up short,
Capricorn. It's time to buckle
down and stretch those dollars
as far as they can go.
Otherwise, you could end up in
a pickle by mid year.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb.
18) Why wrestle with a con-
cern alone when you have loved
ones you can trust to assist you,
Aquarius? Put some of your
worries in another person's
hands.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March
20) You will find hidden
meanings in the most mundane
things, Pisces. The trouble will
be figuring out what the big
message is.

Learn how to deal with unwanted wildlife


Here in South Central Florida
more and more of the scrub and
pastures, that wildlife has called
home, is being converted to
housing developments and
shopping centers. Much of the
wildlife that is initially dis-
placed tries to adapt to the
urban landscape and therefore
winds up in homeowner's back
yards. Many of our encounters
with wildlife can be very enjoy-
able while others can be quite
confrontational. Understanding
is the key to wildlife problems.
Many people have a strong
anxiety toward all snakes.
Snakes are not aggressive and
will not charge or chase after
people. Their typical reaction to
a human intruder is to crawl
away and hide; however, snakes

For example, it was voted
Most Unusual at the Daytona
2005 Rat's Hole custom bike
show.
Another one of Tako's cre-
ations is called The Cobra.
Looked at from above, the
entire bike is one continuous,
slithery serpent, gliding from
the head lamp to the back
fender.
Tako's creations, being top-
of-the-line and extraordinary,
as he is not afraid to tell you,
cost appropriately vast
amounts of money. Recent
models have cost as much as
$100,000. Rest assured, Tako

Boston Red Sox, is the proud

But Tako is also a practical
man, which brings us to his
Sebring stop.
Tako, who had settled in
Fort Lauderdale, had already
been considering going into the
motorcycle accessory business
when he met Alan Jay
Wildstein, owner of the Alan
Jay Automotive Network,
through a mutual friend.
Wildstein was aware of Tako's
work and saw opportunities for
the two to work together.
Now with Wildstein's part-
nership, Tako is setting up a
machine shop out by the
Sebring Airport to make cus-
tom motorcycle parts for sale.
He plans on adding a show-

bite an intimidating object. All
snakes stick out their tongue
frequently to smell their envi-
ronment much the same way a
dog sniffs at things. The non-
venomous black racer and rat
snake are good to have around
as they rid our yards of mice
and rats. Venomous snakes like
diamondback rattlesnakes are
less desirable, however the
chance of being bitten by a ven-
omous snake is very low. There
are more than 100,000 cases of
dog bites in Florida each year
compared to only 200
snakebites. There are no repel-
lents, toxicants, or fumigants
registered for repelling snakes.

by the end of February or early
March.
"People might not be able to

Tako will offer custom triple

He plans on adding a clothing

While his motorcycle line

Tako said he will bring to
cars the same attention to

He wonders at the partner-
ship with Wildstein and is
grateful for the opportunity.
"We're oil and vinegar,

said, with as close to a smile as

Armadillos can
cause a lot of damage
in your lawn and gar-
den areas as they hunt
for insects and grubs to
eat. Some damage also
can be caused by their
burrowing under foun-
dations, driveways, GRO
and other structures to SEA
create their dens.
Again there are no suc- Edz
cessful repellents for
armadillos. Live trap-
ping is the most effec-
tive way to rid your yard of this
pest. A good bait is earthworms
in a ball of dirt and placed in the
toe of an old nylon stocking.
Armadillos caught in these
traps can be released in an area
where you have obtained
landowner permission several
miles away from your home.
Bats may get into buildings
and become a nuisance with
their noise and droppings; they

can also carry rabies.
S Bats are active at night
when they go out to
feed on insects and
then seek dark and
secluded roosting areas
during the day. The
best way rid a building
of bats is to seal off
their entry holes. Wait
NING until they are out at
SON night so you don't trap
them inside.
Raccoons can make
yen pests of themselves by
getting into garbage
cans, eating pet food,
getting into attics or beneath
houses and eating home-grown
fruits and vegetables. The best
way to prevent problems with
raccoons is to not leave any-
thing out for them to eat. Keep
garbage cans inside or make
sure they are secure. Live trap-
ping is discouraged due to rac-
coons possibly carrying rabies.
There are certain laws, rules,
and regulations we need to keep


in mind when dealing with
wildlife. It is unlawful to feed
or entice wild alligators, or to
harvest or sell them without the
required permits. Florida
statutes prohibit the possession
or exhibition of poisonous or
venomous reptiles without first
having obtained a special per-
mit, posting a bond, and com-
plying with the safe housing
and transportation regulations.
It is unlawful to possess certain
native or non-indigenous
wildlife for pets or otherwise
until the appropriate permit is
obtained from the Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
Remember that the wildlife
was here first and now they are
trying to exist in our world.

Be cautious of poisonous plants around pets


Recently I've been thinking
about plants that are poisonous
to pets. Coincidentally, a quilt-
ing friend brought up the same
topic with me because she has a
new puppy that likes to chew
everything, as most puppies do.
My plant concerns began
when I brought home a very
large poinsettia plant. I have
always heard that they are toxic
to pets. Upon some research, it
appears that poinsettia plants
are considered to have low tox-
icity to pets. According to the
ASPCA Animal Poison Control
Center, poinsettia ingestions
typically produce only mild to
moderate gastrointestinal tract
irritation, which may include
drooling, vomiting and/or diar-
rhea. It's still a good idea to
keep poinsettias out of the reach
of your pet in order to avoid
stomach upset, but you don't
have to banish the plant from
your home in fear of fatal expo-
sure.
Another holiday plant that


may be of some concern is
mistletoe: If ingested in large
enough quantities, mistletoe has
the potential to produce gas-
trointestinal irritation, exces-
sive thirst and urination, incoor-
dination, a drop in blood pres-
sure and heart rate, and in
severe cases, difficulty breath-
ing, seizures, coma and even
death. However, ASPCA
Animal Poison Control Center
reports that most animal inges-
tions involve small quantities
- not more than the amount
found in a sprig or two and
typically result in mild stomach
upset that resolves with little to
no treatment.
So with what plants should
you have concern? According
to data compiled by the center
from January 2001 to
December 2004, the most com-
monly reported plants with the
potential to produce life-threat-
ening problems in pets were
lily, azalea, oleander, sago palm
and castor bean.


Lilies are consid-
ered to be highly
toxic to cats. Even
ingestions of very
small amounts of the
plant could result in
kidney failure.
Azaleas are native
to Florida and are
often times used in
landscaping around NEWs
homes. Azaleas con-
tain substances T
known as grayan- WAT
otoxins, which can
produce vomiting, enn
drooling, diarrhea, Jennif
weakness and central
nervous system
depression in dogs, cats and
other animals. Severe azalea
poisoning could ultimately lead
to coma and death from col-
lapse of the cardiovascular sys-
tem.
Like azaleas, oleanders are
frequently used as ornamentals
in landscaping. All parts of the
oleander are considered to be


S

(r


toxic. They contain
cardiac glycosides
that have the poten-
tial to cause serious
effects including gas-
trointestinal tract irri-
tation, abnormal car-
diac function, a sig-
nificant drop in body
temperature
FROM (hypothermia) and
even death.
E In late summer
2003, a border collie
SHED in central Colorado
- developed serious
-Abbey cardiac effects after
ingesting a few azal-
ea leaves, while a cat
in southern California began
vomiting and became very
depressed from nibbling on an
oleander plant. Both pets fortu-
nately recovered after treatment
at local veterinary hospitals.
Sago palm (Cycas revoluta)
and other Cycas species can
also be potentially deadly to
pets. These popular ornamental


Tanya Lambert returns to Hammock


The Friends of Highlands
Hammock will host the first
"Music in the Park" concert of
2007 on Jan. 20 with the return
of Tanya Lambert. Tanya will
be performing her favorite
country music tunes and you
might remember her from last
year when she made her debut
at the Hammock. Tanya's coun-
try music is quite popular,
which comes as no
surprise since she's
been performing
nearly all her life. In
fact, she started
singing on stage at
the tender age of 7.
Over the years, she
has performed in
many venues; includ- ,
ing festivals, church- THE
es and contests.
This may be just FLO
her second perform-
ance at the pDroth
Hammock, but dur- --
ing the 16 years or so
that she's been per-
forming professionally, she's
traveled throughout the state of
Florida and many of our neigh-
boring states too. You may have
seen her on one of the various
television shows she's per-
formed on, or perhaps heard her
on the radio. She also per-
formed with the popular band,
Raizin' Kane, at the Sebring
races and the 12 Hours of BBQ
here in Highlands County just a
few years ago.
Tanya's also opened for
many popular stars of country
music. Tanya casually mentions
a few which include; Toby
Keith, Tracy Byrd, Sammy
Kershaw, Ronnie Milsap, Billy
Ray Cyrus and Joe Diffie.
Tanya also was a 2005 Florida
finalist for the Nashville
Network's "Nashville Star."
She has recorded two
albums, the first being entitled
"No Ordinary Woman." Her
second album, "A New
Creation" was also recorded in
Nashville, like the first. Tanya

said, "Both projects were awe-
some and I'm really looking
forward to the next one." She
added, "I'll be so happy to per-
form again at the Hammock
because I just love it, and the
people in Highlands County are
so dear to me."
Why not make plans now to
enjoy her sweet tunes out here
at Highlands Hammock at 7
p.m. Saturday, Jan.
20. Concert admis-
sion is just $5 per
person, payable at the
picnic area entrance.
You can plan to bring
the kids too, since
accompanied chil-
dren 16 and under are
always admitted free
REAL of charge to our con-
certs. If you like to
RIDA arrive early, keep in
mind that the park
y Harris entrance fee of $4 per
- vehicle (up to eight
people) applies prior
to 6 p.m. Also, don't
forget to bring your lawn chairs,
blankets and a flashlight for the
brief walk back to your vehicle.
Fireboxes will be crackling and
ready for marshmallow roasting
in the event that you'd like to
come prepared to make
S'mores or would like enjoy the
warmth of the fire. The

m


plants contain toxic compounds
that can potentially produce
vomiting, diarrhea, depression,
seizures and liver failure. All
parts of the plant are poisonous,
but the seeds or "nuts" appear
to contain the largest amount of
toxins. As with the other plants
on this list, very little plant
material can produce a poison-
ing; the ingestion of just one or
two seeds can result in very
serious effects. An American pit
bull terrier in northern Florida
became very ill and subsequent-
ly died from liver failure in
March 2002 after chewing on
the leaves and base of a sago
palm in his owner's yard.
Another ornamental that
might be found in landscaping
is the castor bean plant (Ricinus
communis). As with sago palm,
the beans or seeds of the castor
bean plant are the most toxic
portion, as they contain the
highest concentration of poi-
sonous component and are par-
ticularly dangerous if chewed
or crushed. However, the
leaves, stem and other parts are
toxic as well. If ingested, the
toxin can produce severe
abdominal pain, drooling, vom-
iting, diarrhea, excessive thirst,
weakness and loss of appetite.
In severe cases, dehydration,
muscle twitching, tremors,
seizures, coma and death can be
seen. In August 2002, a
labrador retriever in southern
Arizona developed serious gas-
trointestinal irritation including


bloody diarrhea and vomiting
after ingesting several castor
bean seeds; her condition
required intensive care at a
local emergency clinic.
Other plants you should be
cautious around are those that
produce a milky sap when a leaf
or stem is broken off the plant.
Some examples of these plants
that I am aware of include
plants of the milkweed family
(butterfly weed), lantana and
croton. Other Florida landscape
plants that can be hazardous
include Carolina yellow jes-
samine (Gelsemium semper-
virens), chinaberry (Melia
axederach), coontie (Zamia
spp.), firecracker plant
(Aesculus pavia), gloriosa
(Gloriosa superba), eucalyptus,
golden dewdrop (Duranta
repens), honeysuckle (Lonicera
spp.) and privet (Ligustrum
lucidum, L. japonicum, L. vul-
gare, etc).

these plants visit the University
