Suspects

apprehended
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID While
Lake Placid residents mourn
the death of "native son"
Florida Highway Patrolman
Nicholas G. Sottile, a murder
suspect is behind bars.
Sottile, a 23-year veteran, a
sergeant and supervisor, was
shot to death Friday during a
traffic stop on U.S. 27 near
Cloverleaf Road between
Sebring and Lake Placid.
"He was a trooper's trooper,"
Knight said Friday, having
returned from Sottile's Lake
Placid home, where he spent 1
1/2 hours with Sottile's widow
and two adult children. "It's a
sad day for the state of Florida,
for the Florida Highway Patrol
and for law enforcement."
By 1 a.m. today (Saturday),
SWAT officers arrested 19-
year-old
Joshua Lee-
Alterbergers at
his Sebring
residence.
Knight, dur-
ing a press
ALTERBERGERS conference this
morning, said
Alterbergers
allegedly shot
Sottile before
fleeing in the
2003 Toyota
Camry, which
was found in a
grove north-
KINDER east of the inci-
dent.
Quintin J. Kinder, 21, of
Bainbridge, Ga., a passenger in
the car who fled on foot, sur-
rendered without incident: to a
perimeter team at 7:23 a.m.
SBoth suspects are being held
at the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office. Alterbergers is
being held on first degree mur-
der without bond. Kinder had
been charged with trespassing
and is being held on $10,000
bond.
Knight learned of the shoot-
ing Friday afternoon and flew
to Sebring to visit with Sottile's
family, oversee the investiga-
tion and brief the media.
Knight briefed Gov. Charlie
Crist on several occasions
through the night.
"He will talk to the family
when it's time," Knight said,
explaining that personal mat-
ters will occur on wife
Elizabeth Sottile's timeline.
Sottile, 48, is survived by his
wife, who coaches the Lake
Placid High School girls' soc-
cer team; son Nicholas Sottile
II, 24, a trooper assigned to
Tampa Bay; and daughter
Heather Sottile, 19, of Largo,
who's attending college in
Orlando.
Sottile II will be given what-
ever time he needs before he's
expected to return to duty,
Knight promised.
Funeral arrangements have
been made. A visitation will be
from 6-8:30 p.m. Monday at
Memorial United Methodist
Church, Lake Placid. Funeral
service will be 1 p.m. Tuesday
at The Restoration Center in
Sebring, State Road 66 and
Sparta Road. Burial will follow
in the Oak Hill Cemetery, Lake

Placid. The Rev. Ray Cameron
of the First Presbyterian
Church will officiate.
"It is absolutely no surprise
to me that we made the arrest
quickly," Knight said, remind-
ing people that he vowed
Friday to capture the suspects.
Sottile had stopped a Camry
in the northbound lanes of U.S.
27 for erratic and unsafe driv-
ing.
When passenger Kinder
allegedly fled east into the
woods, Sottile called for back-
up and troopers were deployed
from their Lake Placid office,
the FHP director said.
His next transmission to dis-
patch was that he'd been shot,
allegedly by the driver, who
fled in the car.
"From what we know right
now, the trooper did not pull his
weapon," Knight said.
Sottile wasn't wearing his
department-issued body armor,
Knight told the News-Sun.
Though troopers receive
training on.the proper wear of
bullet-proof vests, they have
the option to use them.
"We put a lot of trust and
faith in our troopers," Knight

'We lost an


exceptionally


fine man'

Trooper remembered
as a 'true friend' who
was devoted to family
By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID To his friends andj
co-workers, Nicholas G. Sottile Sr., 48,
will be remembered as a good man who
loved his family.
Sottile was shot and killed Friday after-
noon near Lake Placid while on duty with
Florida Highway Patrol.
Ray Cameron, pastor of Lake Placid's
First Presbyterian Church and Sottile's
close friend, spoke
tearfully about the
man known as
"Nicky" to his friends
and co-workers.
"We lost an excep-
tionally fine man,"
Cameron said. "If he
was your friend, you
had a true friend."
Cameron got to
know Sottile better in
the past three or four
years, and their friendship went back to
when their children played sports together.
Sottile "was a devoted family man,"i
Cameron said. "He was very proud of his
wife and two children. He has a great fam-
ily that he can be proud of."
Sottile was also an active member at
First Presbyterian Church.
"He was strong in his faith," Cameron
said. "He believed in and loved the Lord.'
That, too, was a big part of his life."
One of Sottile's favorite hobbies was
cooking, especially barbecue. In fact,
Sottile frequently cooked food for his fel-
low state troopers.
"It didn't matter if we were gathering at
his house or if he was bringing food to

Bicycle safety

law reminder

LAKE PLACID The
Lake Placid Police
Department and the
Highlands County Peddlers
would like to remind the
public of the latest law
regarding bicycle safety
'enacted in July 2006.
'i 2006 Florida Statutes
316.083 (1): The driver of a
vehicle overtaking another
vehicle proceeding in the
same direction shall give an
appropriate signal, as pro-
vided for in S. 316.156, shall
pass to the left thereof at a
safe distance and shall not
again drive to the right side
of the roadway until safely
clear of the overtaken vehi-
cle. The driver of a vehicle
overtaking a bicycle or other
nonmotorized vehicle must
pass the bicycle or other
nonmotorized vehicle at a
safe distance of not less than
three feet between the vehi-
cle and the bicycle or other
nonmotorized vehicle.


Special to the News-Sunl
SEBRING Highlands
County Clerk of the Courts
Luke Brooker, and Bob
Jamison, the deputy clerk who
oversaw the recent audit of the
Highlands County Library
System, will be the guest speak-
ers of the next Ivory Club meet-
ing.
"The Highlands County
Sheriff's Office investigation
has been completed and by
Thursday the county commis-
sion will have had, its special
session on the matter so this
again will be a very timely ses-
sion," Ivory Club chairman
Steve Roberts said.
The Ivory Club, a non parti-


san information group, has
become known for inviting
guests who can shed light on
the hot topics of the day. In the
past it has featured issues rang-
ing from how property valua-
tion is determined to how
impact fees were developed.
"Personally, I think this
whole issue with the audit of
the county library system is
misunderstood in large part, and
I know these folks can shed
light on how the audit was
developed and give us the real
scoop as to what was found," he
said.
In addition to Brooker and
Jamison, the two auditors,
Heather Woods and Mary


King of the mountain


Wilson, are scheduled to be at
the meeting to answer questions
about the audit and how it was
performed.
The ream-thick document
revealed numerous inadequa-
cies ranging from the alleged
misuse of computers to reports
of missing or misdirected
funds.
"I don't think this meeting
will solve the problems raised
by the audit, after all, that's the
job of our county officials,"
Roberts said. "But I think it will
give those in attendance a lot
better idea of what has been
going on."
The general format of the
Ivory Club begins with a short


presentation by the speakers,
followed by a much longer
question and answer session.
Brooker and Jamison most
recently appeared at the
Highlands County Homeown-
ers Executive Committee meet-
ing in what chairman Jack
Ritchie described as "one of the
best sessions ever" for that
group.
The January session also will
have a reorganizational compo-
nent, to see if those who come
to the meeting would like to
modify the format.
"We have been so successful
over the past couple of years
but we certainly want to be


responsive to the wishes of
those who attend. We're always
looking for new ideas," Roberts
said.
For the February meeting,
new District 16 Congressman
Tim Mahoney has been invited
to attend and talk about his first
impressions about the change-
over at the nation's Capitol.
Confirmation has not yet been
received.
The Ivory Club meets the
third Thursday of each month at
Homer's Restaurant in the
Sebring Square shopping cen-
ter. The meeting begins at 6
p.m. with those wishing to eat
urged to come at 5 p.m.

Special to the News-Sun
The Highlands County
Veterans Service Office often
receives calls or visits from vet-
erans and their family members
requesting military documents.
Sometimes the request is an
immediate need for filing for
benefits. For others, it is a fam-
ily search for historical docu-
ments.
When a veteran passes away
and the family or survivors are
seeking burial benefits, or when
a veteran is trying to claim VA
benefits and needs documents
for proof of service and honor-
able discharge, a DD-214 or
separation paper is required.
When this document cannot be
found, an S-Form-180 can be
completed and sent to the
National Records Center for a
replacement.
Once this replacement dis-
charge paper is obtained, it is
advised to keep it in a safe and
secure place. Veterans are
encouraged to tell family mem-
bers where this document is
kept, so it can be found when
needed.
, Other documents that need to
IWiilable fliA t i-t benefits
to a veteran is a copy of marital
documents, divorce decrees,
and birth certificates. Medical
documents pertaining to a serv-


ice connected disability should
also be kept.
Documents that can provide
proof of residence identifi-
cation card, driver's license,
and voter ID card are impor-
tant for admission into Florida's
veterans' nursing homes. For
more information on state vet-
erans' home eligibility require-
ments log onto www.floridav-
ets.org/nursing/nursing.asp.
Burial benefits are another
benefit available for which the
VA will require documents. To
assist the family time and grief,
it is suggested the veteran dis-
cuss his or her wishes for inter-
ment, and where the documents
are stored.
The Highlands County
Veterans Service Office, 7205
S. George Blvd. in Sebring,
can assist with the filing of
claims, obtaining benefits to
which the veteran is eligible,
and assist the family of a
deceased veteran for benefits to
which they are entitled. Call
402-6623 for assistance.

dazzling technique and poetic
lyricism. Since making her

said, explaining that they are
encouraged to wear their armor.
"Everyone (who doesn't wear a
vest) has their own personal
reason."
From the time of the traffic
stop until the shooting "a matter
of minutes" transpired.
Sottile's patrol car wasn't
equipped with a dash camera,
Knight said. Some FHP units -
primarily DUI enforcement and
narcotics officers are
equipped with the remotely
operated cameras.
"Naturally we wish there
would have been a camera," he
said.
Sottile violated no policies in
his handling of the traffic stop,
Knight said, explaining that -
due to a high volume of con-
tacts his officers are given
the discretion whether to notify
dispatch of details such as
license plate information.
More than 300 officers from
25 local, state and federal law
enforcement agencies were at
the command post on U.S. 27,
and more than that were fanned
out across the region, on the
ground and in the air, searching
for the suspects.
Officers recovered the sus-
pect weapon, but Knight would
not disclose its caliber or how
many shell casings were located
at the scene.
Sottile was shot in the upper
torso, Knight said, and was pro-


nounced dead at 4:51 p.m. at
Florida Hospital Lake Placid
with family nearby.
He didn't discuss how many
times the trooper was shot.
The State Medical Examiner
will determine the extent of
injuries that resulted in Sottile's
death.
U.S. 27, between Lake
Josephine Road and Country
Road 621, was shut down
beginning about 6:30 p.m.
Friday, traffic flow ceasing
about 8:30 p.m.
Motorists were diverted to
Henscratch Road, and U.S. 27
became a sea of parked patrol
cars.
The highway was reopened
about 9 a.m. today (Saturday).
Multiple witnesses have been
interviewed, Knight said, and
the investigation continues.
Potential witnesses are
encouraged to call law enforce-
ment FHP at (239) 938-
1800, Crime Stoppers at (800)
873-TIPS or the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office can be
reached at 402-7200.
Sottile is the 41st Florida
trooper to die in the line of duty,
the third since 2004, Knight
said. Of the 41, he was the 15th
shot to death.
"Our sergeant got killed,"
Knight said. "But, it's not just
about the Florida Highway
Patrol."
Highlands County Sheriff
Susan Benton shuttled between
the command post on the west
side of the highway and the
Coldwell Banker Highlands

you," Cameron said. "He just
loved to cook for other people."
In his off time, Sottile loved
to spend time with his family.
"He just enjoyed relaxing,"
Cameron said. "He didn't have
to do anything or be enter-
tained. He just enjoyed spend-
ing time with people that he
knew."
Cameron said a "nonstop"
flow of people have come to the
Sottile household to show their
sympathy to the family, and the
Highway Patrol will have
someone with the family
around the clock.
While Sottile will be remem-
bered as a good man by his
friends, he will also be remem-
bered as a man who excelled at
his job.
Richard Morey, of Sebring,
who used to work with Sottile,
called him "a very professional
officer."


This recently remodeled home is situated on a large comer lot and offers a
great amount of extra upgrades. New roof, A/C, paint, tile, carpet, cabinets
and tile counter tops. All baths have been totally remodeled and are very
tastefully done. Very light and bright 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with an excel-
lent floor plan. Hurry on this one!

Morey worked with Sottile in
the early 1980s when both men
were stationed in Lake Placid.
Morey was with the town's
police department, and Sottile
worked in Florida Highway
Patrol's Lake Placid station.
"He was a really good offi-
cer, very conscientious," Morey
said. "I'm very, very sorry to
see this loss."
A tragedy like Sottile's death
affects all law enforcement per-
sonnel, ", Highlands County
Sheriff Susan Benton said.
"We are all a family," she
said.
Benton said officers from
Polk and Lee counties, the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation, and the
Seminole Tribe of Florida's
Department of Law
Enforcement were all assisting
in the investigation.
An online memorial tribute
has been set up for Sottile at
www.odmp.org, the Officer

Pizza maker


TOFFIN' IT

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


Covered in sauce
and cheese
I looked forward to this
assignment, working at Papa
John's making pizza. For one
thing I like pizza.
For another, I could see
delightful comedic possibili-
ties involving pizza dough,
although it's hard to explain to
friends who you actually want
something silly to happen a
Lucille Ball type of scenario,
for example, involving raw
dough and a balding pate.
When the time came, how-
ever, I found I didn't have
time to be funny. Even on a
slow night, there is plenty in a
pizza parlor to keep a person
busy.
I ended up working as hard
as I ever have caught up
during the rushes, filling an
actual position, doing real
work, and working at a frantic
pace. There really wasn't any-
thing funny to it.
And let me tell you, after
three hours of non-stop stand-
ing on a ceramic floor, bend-
ing over a counter, dressing
pizza pies, I hobbled away,
barely able to walk.
This is another of those
slyly physical jobs that catch
you by surprise; where a hot
soaking bath at the end of the
day is a necessity, not a luxury.
At the same time, the work
isn't too difficult.
The object is to get the cus-

Pizzerias slice up business


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING Pizza is almost
as old as bread.
According to Linda Stradley,
writing about it at
whatscookingamerica.net,
"pizza has been a part of the
Italian diet since the stone age."
Any of the Mediterranean
civilizations could have invent-
ed it, she writes, all have some-
thing exactly the same, or near
it like pita bread, for
instance.
The basic idea is built around
a flat, usually round, piece of
rising flour bread, baked so it
acts as a plate with toppings
piled on it. Chicken meat, olive
oil, garlic, pepper, mint, and
pine nuts were typical ancient
toppings.
It wasn't until the age of
exploration, during the 1600s,
when Europeans ventured into
the New World, bringing back
exotic new vegetables and
fruits, like potatoes and toma-
toes, that pizza as everyone
knows it evolved.
Of course, it was the inven-
tion of tomato sauce that made
the difference.
But acceptance of tomato
sauce wasn't an easy process.
Tomatoes are members of the
nightshade family, and were
considered highly poisonous at
first. It took time for people to
get over their fear. Pizza
remained a simple dish, consid-
ered peasant fare, but slowly it
became a favorite staple.
Quick jump 400 years to the
20th century, and the end of
World War II. American sol-
diers, having discovered pizza
in Italian cities, brought a taste

Robert Tuck, assistant manager at Papa John's Pizza in Sebring, twirls some pizza dough for effect. He
has been cooking pizzas for years. He has the art of the pizza toss perfected. The real work occurred
when he first slapped the dough from one hand to the other.


for it back home. By the 1950s,
pizza was in high demand, con-
sidered as American as apple
pie.
For example, did you know
October is National Pizza
Month?
Or, according to
pizzaware.com, that Americans
eat approximately 100 acres of
pizza a day, or about 350 slices
a second?
Or that 17 percent of all
American restaurants are pizza
parlors, and that pizza accounts


for 10 percent of all food serv-
ice sales?
Or that 93 percent of
Americans eat pizza at least
once a month? That means each
man, woman and child in
America eats an average of 46
slices (23 pounds) of pizza per
year.
It's a $30 billion plus per
year industry, selling about 3
billion pizzas a year in America
alone.
It is the runaway favorite
school meal. In fact, according


to a recent Gallup poll, children
between the ages of 3 and 11
prefer pizza over any other
lunch or dinner food.
Popular all over the world,
pizza is amazingly versatile -
capable of adapting to almost
any topping.
For example, again from piz
zaware.com, pepperoni is
America's favorite, accounting
for 36 percent of all .pizza
orders. More than 250 million
pounds of pepperoni are con-
sumed on pizzas every year.


Other cultures have different
tastes.
Eel and squid are popular in
Japan; pickled ginger and
minced mutton in India; green
peas in Brazil; coconut in Costa
Rica; and red herring in Russia.
Barbecue pizza emerged in
America in the mid '90s, and
was popular from the begin-
ning.
Here in Sebring, pizza's pop-
ularity makes for a great deal of
competition. There are eight
restaurants that serve pizza -
Domino's, Hungry Howies,
Little Caesar, Papa John's,
Pizza Hut, Pizzano's Pizza,
Roserio's, and Sabarro's (in
Lakeshore Mall).
According to the company's
Web site, Papa John's was
founded by John Schnatter iri
Jeffersonville, Ind. in 1984;
when he knocked out the back
of a closet at his father's tavern
and started selling pizza to cus-
tomers. Schnatter sold his 1972
Z28 Camero to finance the
operation.
Within a year, business was
so good he moved to larger
quarters and the first restaurant
in the chain was opened.
Papa John's now has approx-
imately 3,000 restaurants in 49
states and 24 countries.
Tim Bumette has been the
general manger of the Papa
John's in the Sebring Square
Mall since it opened seven
years ago.
The restaurant is open seven
days a week, from 11 a.m. to 11
p.m. Sunday through Thursday,
and from 11 a.m. to midnight
Friday and Saturday. The tele-
phone number is 402-1177.

Quality, Compassionate Care!


My name is Margaret Yonaley. I have been visiting in the
Sebring area. I needed to have my blood tested several times
during my stay. I chose the Highlands Regional Outreach
Lab and it turned out to be one of my better decisions.


I would like to recognize the entire staff in the Outreach
Lab, from the volunteer out front to the technicians that
drew the blood. From my first visit they made me feel like
they cared that I was satisfied. This is not common any-
more with so many services you get. I was impressed with
the professionalism of the staff and the overall process from
checking in to paying for the services.


My husband winters in Sebring and if he needs care he will
also head to Highlands. Just thought you should know what
a first rate operation you have in the Outreach Lab area.

SAUCE
Continued from 9A
tomer in and out, Tim Burnette
said. He has managed pizza
restaurants for several different
chains, and has been in the
business for more than 20
years. He has been general
manager at Papa John's since
its opening about seven years
ago.
Papa John's has charts with
picture directions posted at
every station, he said, so work-
ers can see exactly how the
product should look at each
step in the process.
For example, a 14 inch pizza
with a single topping takes 21
slices of pepperoni on the outer
ring, 15 slices of pepperoni on
the second ring, and six slices
of pepperoni on the inner ring.
The picture shows exactly how
the pepperoni should be
placed.
In the beginning, I was mak-
ing sure I got sauce and cheese
clear from the outside rim to
the middle of the pie. I covered
every inch of the dough with
the toppings.
No good, said Burnette gen-
tly. First, the pie needs a crust,
so the outer edge has to be
formed into a finger-wide
ridge, which has to be kept free
of sauce. Plain sauce will burn
in the oven.
Second, the toppings can't
cover the inner core of the
pizza. That is because as the
pie bakes the crust rises, caus-
ing the cheese and toppings to
shift toward the middle of the
pie. If you have too many
ingredients packed in the mid-
dle, the pie won't stay firm
when you pick up a slice, but
droop at the tip, dropping the
toppings.
Of course, Burnette and
Robert Tuck, who has been an
assistant manager at Papa
John's only six months, but has
worked for other pizza restau-
rants for years, no longer have
to count the slices, or measure
the onions, peppers or mush-
rooms they put on the pies.
They have been doing this for
so long they can do it by sight.
So you can imagine how I
slowed down the line by count-
ing each pepperoni slice -
especially because toooften


someone would say something
and I'd lose track of the count
and have to start all over.
It was lucky it turned out to
be a slow night, with moments
of quiet between the busy, oth-
erwise I might not have been
able to keep up.
Burnette treated me as a new
hire trainee. That meant he did-
n't let me out of his sight.
In the real world I would
have started as a driver, and
worked my way up to the
kitchen, but Burnette let me try
every task in the kitchen.
In addition to putting on top-
pings and cheese, I cut the piz-
zas as they came out of the
oven. And quickly discovered
how sharp those pizza cutters
are. I almost sliced through the
bottom of the cardboard box
the first I time I used it, press-
ing down with all of my
weight.
I quickly learned how dan-
gerous pizza is to handle. If
you start to drop a pizza, as
you pull it out of the oven, just
let it go, Burnette said in all
seriousness. It is just too hot to
take chances. The oven is set at
480 degrees, and the pie travels


on a conveyer belt, taking
exactly 6.4 minutes to travel
through it.
Burnette let me try to toss
pizzas.
First he explained how it
takes lots of practice to get
good at it. Then he told me that
you don't really toss pizzas -
unless someone is watching,
who wants a good show.
The real way to prepare
pizza dough is to slap it from
one hand to the other. The
force of the slap, and the
weight of the dough, let gravity
do the work. Centrifugal force
thins the dough in the middle,
after the cook has worked the
dough and formed the rim that
will become the crust. The
trick is to rotate the dough as
you slap it from one hand to
the other. The rotation is the
only way to keep the dough
round.
Well, I don't need to tell
you, I had trouble. I couldn't
get the twisting of the dough
right as I slapped it from hand
to hand. It was important to get
the dough right with the least
amount of handling working


NOW OPENml 9 NOWkOPEN 9NOIOPN


the dough warms it up so it
won't get too soft and mushy. I
overworked the dough, making
pizzas that came out way too
creative. My dough came out
looking like ovals or rhom-
boids, but rarely as circles.
Fortunately, Burnette knew
how to salvage them. I say
them, because Burnette let me
try three times to get it right.
But it was like trying to
learn karate, I couldn't get the
action right, even when he
demonstrated slowly; even
when he made it look so easy.
But that didn't turn out to be
the most difficult part. The
most difficult part was keeping
my hands to myself, as the
bubbling pies, fragrant and
beautiful, rolled out from the
oven. This is a job with more
than one danger. Bon appetite.



Any Highlands County busi-
ness person who has a job they
would like to highlight in the
Tuffin'It With Tuffley feature
should call 385-6155, ext. 528,
or e-mail cindy.marshall@
newssun.com.


Tim Burnette prepares a mushroom pizza for the oven. Note the
clean rim. It becomes the crust. Toppings are measured and counted,
so every type pizza is the same from one to the other. Burnette wants
there to be topping in every bite.

Kristin Johnson wins


audiology scholarship


Local student Dr. Kristin
Johnston, of Gainesville, won a
competitive scholarship for
$5,000 from the Audiology
Foundation of America, the
first Doctor of Audiology (Au
D.) graduate to do so nationally.
She completed her Au.D.
degree in June 2006 and is
enrolled at the University of
Florida's Ph.D. program.
The scholarship is in memo-
ry of Leo Doerfler, Ph.D., the
second person in the United
States to earn a Ph.D. in audiol-
ogy, back in the 1940s when the
profession was getting estab-
lished due to the need for better
treatments for war veterans.
Doerfler was a leader in the
audiology profession and
strongly encouraged the profes-
sion to the academic standards
to the Doctor of Audiology
degree.
"Dr. Johnston's pursuit of a
Ph.D. following her Au.D.
degree will establish her as one
of the first audiologists with
doctoral level practitioner train-
ing before preparing herself for
a research. career. Tlhii: -ill
allow her to be an excellent
future teacher and researcher,"
states Kenneth L. Lowder,
Au.D., chair of the Audiology
Foundation of America.
The scholarship is adminis-
tered by the Audiology
Foundation of America, found-
ed in 1989 to lead audiology's
transition to a doctoring profes-
sion with Au.D. as its unique
designator. It is funded by
memorial and general dona-
tions.
"The explosion of new tech-
nology in hearing care products
and treatments in the last 20
years necessitated additional
preparation depth and breadth
for new audiologists. All educa-
tional institutions in the U.S.
have now upgraded their audi-
ology educational programs to
the doctoral level, thereby
enhancing the quality of care
consumers can expect for their
hearing problems," Lowder
said. "It takes eight years of
higher education to become a
Doctor of Audiology, then more
years to add on a Ph.D. degree,
so we're glad to support out-
standing students like Dr.

Kristin is the daughter of

VA benefits exempt from tax reporting |


Special to the News-Sun
The Department of Veteran
Affairs has issued a reminder
that all VA benefits are exempt
from taxation and should not be
reported to IRS. This includes
the VA Work Study Program.
Moneys paid to participants in
the work study program are
educational assistance benefits
paid under the same chapter
that the student is receiving
educational assistance.
Veterans in receipt of mili-
tary retired pay who are award-
ed VA compensation benefits
retroactively may claim an
exclusion from their income the
amount of VA compensation
they would have received had
they not been in receipt of mili-
tary retired pay. Effected veter-
ans should claim the exclusion
by submitting the award letter
showing the amount and effec-
tive date of compensation they
would have received but for the


receipt of military retired pay.
IRS instructions tell affected
veterans to submit a "VA Form
20-8993," which is the original
award letter. If the veteran does
not have the award letter, the
VA can provide a letter in lieu
of it.
Claimants of the IRS
Disability Income Exclusion
are required to submit a certifi-
cate attesting to permanent and
total disability. Under an agree-
ment with the IRS, the VA cer-
tification on VA Form 21-0172,
Certification of Permanent and
Total Disability, will be accept-
ed by the IRS, based solely on
an existing rating of permanent
and total disability in place of
the required private physicians
statement.
According to Joseph Dionne,
director of Highlands County
Veteran Services Office, the VA
Form 21-0172 may be obtained


by contacting the regional
office at 1-800-827-1000. The
request should provide suffi-
cient information to identify the
veteran's record, the year of
which certification is needed,
and the address the VA Form
21-0712 is to be sent.
The VA does not issue W-2 or
1099 forms, except when an
overpayment has been waived
by the VA. The overpayment is
a taxable income, and is report-
ed to the IRS, and a 1099 is
issued to the veteran.
Furthermore, secondary
interest on VA benefits may be
taxable. For example, if a VA
beneficiary deposits his or her
compensation check in an inter-
est-bearing account, the interest
is not tax exempt.
VA benefits are subject to
collection for tax liens in cases
where the beneficiary owes
money to the IRS.


No injuries except to vehicles

Carnival

rides, not

personnel,

are hired
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING There are pri-
vate companies that specialize
in traveling carnivals. Self-con-
tained, the enterprise drives
right up to the door, complete
with rides, games and food
concessions.
Some companies have one
midway show, some have
many; but each carnival is free
standing and assumes its own
liability.
Artie McIntyre, general
manager for the Highlands
County Fair Association,
explained the hiring process.
The rides are rented in pack-
ages, he said; so many types of
one kind of ride, so many of
another. After sending out a
request for bids, the fair board
signs with its choice. It
arranges security for the carni-
val's equipment, but everything
else is the show's responsibili-
ty.
The company must have
insurance in order to operate,
for example. And it must sign a
hold harmless agreement with
the hiring group. Its equipment
has to pass inspection before it
is used. And it is responsible
for the people it hires.
Background checks are the
responsibility of the carnival
and its owner. McIntyre said it
is even against the law to
screen carnival workers as a
prerequisite to hiring.
By statute, children may not
enter a fairgrounds without an
adult, so the children are never
alone with a carnival.worker,
which means there is no vital
reason to run a background
check without a probable
cause.
Rick Ramsey is the ride
superintendent for the
Hildebrand Carnival currently
at Lakeshore Mall.
i Most of his workers have
traveled with him for years, but
there is occasional turnover. He
does the hiring and supervises
-training,. Th'e -minimum age
requirement is 18.:

Two for the road


Young lives spent riding

the rails, and the thumb


By C.J. MOUSER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
The sun came up over the
Lakeshore Mall Wednesday
morning casting the fresh light
of a new day over an empty
parking lot; all except for the
northeast corner, where a small
carnival squats expectantly on
the asphalt. The carnival
appears settled but in reality is
ready to pick up and relocate at
a second's notice.
Among the carnies are two
kids: Nicole "Pickle" Padgett,
23, from Baltimore, and
Mitchell "Billy K" Cuccio, 19,
from New York. It is their sec-
ond day with the carnival, and
they are just learning the ropes.
They are travel partners, have
known each other only a few
months and for all intents and
purposes, are all each other
have in the world.
Pickle
"We just kind of stumbled
over the carnival," Pickle said,


when asked how she came to
be the employee presiding over
the small children's rides. "We
got here yesterday from
Tampa. We were kind of walk-
ing around the mall parking
lot, and here it was."
The couple met at a drop-in
center at a place called Street
Works in Manhattan, a center
that caters to the homeless. It
was on Dec. 26 that Billy K
and Pickle decided to head for
California from New York by
way of Florida.
"I know it sounds crazy,"
Pickle admits, "but we planned
to ride the rail cars, and we
have to go the way they're
going."
Pickle is average height and
stocky in build. Her hair is
assorted shades of blonde and
is twisted in shoulder-length
dreadlocks. Her skin is deco-
rated with tattoos and pierc-
ings, and her fingernails are
bitten to the quick. She has a
lively smile, engaging eyes and

partner, Nicole 'Pickle' Padgett, watches. The two hitched rides to
Florida and hope to eventually end up in California.


is anything but ignorant. She
graduated high school and is a
culinary art major who wants
to be a massage therapist. Her
mother is a nurse in Maryland.
The journey south
Pickle and Billy K went
from New York to a rail yard
in New Jersey only to find out
that there were no "rides"
available. It was then that they
decided to hitchhike. They
caught their first ride with a
trucker who took them as far as
North Carolina. South Carolina
was where they secured a ride
with another trucker, who took
them as far as Florida.
"We're part of the
boomerang generation," She
explains, when asked why she
is not back in Maryland living
with her mother. "We leave
home and then turn around and
come right back. There are six
kids in my family, and my par-
ents are just getting a little
tired of the whole parent
thing."
Billy K
Billy K is average height
with shoulder length black hair
and has a boyish grin that is
completely contagious. His
father is in prison. He doesn't
know where his mother is and
his grandparents, who raised
him, died when he was 14,
within six weeks of each other.
During the course of his few
years on earth Billy K has
"traveled" around
Massachusetts, Arkansas,
Kansas, Wyoming, California
and New York. He carries a
pack with a sleeping bag and
all his personal possessions
and admits that he has an
unreasonable fear of homeless
shelters; they "creep him out."
Billy K.is an insulin depend-
ent diabetic. He admits that


Nicole Padgett and Mitchell Cuccio stumbled across work at the car-
nival at Lakeshore Mall's parking lot.


keeping up with his disease is a
challenge when living on the
road and working for as little
as $20 a day.
"You see a lot when you live
this kind of lifestyle. Some
things you don't want to see.
People drive back and forth to
work everyday, and they don't
see other people," he said.
"People die everyday from
addictions and from being
homeless and no one seems to
care."
He describes in a nutshell
what he considers the most
psychologically damaging
aspect of life as a roamer.


"It's the way people look at
you," he said. "They either
look right through you or they
look down at you."

The future
Ultimately Billy K and
Pickle hope to wind up their
journey in Southern California.
They intend to stay with the
carnival until it leaves Florida
and for as far as it travels in a
westerly direction.
The carnival provides lodg-
ing and $40 a day earnings
combined, which they hope
will help get them across the
United States.

EDITORIALS/OPINIONS


Leaders, not just the president, are


" f g-,6 ..OK, to tell the truth, I had
NTON JR. ROMONA WASHINGTON mixed feelings about going to
Executive Editor war with Iraq.
It's not that I thought that
,L SCOTT DRESSEL Saddam Hussein was a paragon
r Sports Editor of virtue. Nor did I think him
incapable of trying to hurt the
United States if he got half a
chance.
k pft But I was concerned about
our country playing world cop.
I knew one of the reasons we
-were going in was Hussein's
.* brutal treatment of his people. I
S wondered if that was a prece-
dent we wanted to set.
I am knowledgeable in many
areas. But I am not a military
person. So when we went into
S" Iraq, I had to trust that our lead-
ers knew what they were doing
and would do it right.
Which brings us to January
2007.
I just finished listening to
President Bush's speech on the
new direction in Iraq, and the
S Democratic response. As I sit
here, sipping diet root beer and
listening to people tell me their


opinion of what I
just heard, I make
the following
observations:
N Bipartisanship


LAURA'S LOOK

Laura Ware


is a myth. I know,
some of us held faint hopes that
it was a real and viable thing.
Call us naive.
It's clear that staying in
Iraq is going to be filled with
trouble and messy. More people
will die. But leaving Iraq under
the current circumstances
would be madness. Does any-
one really think if we leave Iraq
it's going to fix itself? Or that
letting it try is in our best inter-
ests?
Iraqis have to step up to
the plate. President Bush points
out that our commitment is not
"open-ended." It's getting time
for those who are running Iraq
to do their part. It is their coun-
try. At some point they are
going to have to take care of it.
Sadly, the Iraqi war is getting
muddled because it's become a
political football. It tends to


blind people when
they are using
something like a
war to advance
their own power. It


also causes people
to call each other names and
merrily skip over what reality
is.
It's easy to forget that we are
talking about lives when we
talk about the war. Not only
American lives, but Iraqi lives.
Our lives here in the United
States are virtually untouched
by this war. We don't truly
appreciate what is happening so
far away.
It is very easy for people like
me to sit back and take potshots
on the people in charge of the
war. I'm not the Commander in
Chief. My decisions don't put
people in harm's way. I don't
get to vote on whether or not
the war gets funded.
I am not crazy enough to try
to offer a solution to Iraq; I
don't know enough. I am not
experienced enough. Remem-


responsible
ber what I said at the beginning
of the column I am not a mil-
itary person.
It will come down to our
leaders. Not just President
Bush, who as Commander in
Chief has a lot to do with what
will happen. It will also come
down to Congress, if they can
quit jockeying for power long
enough to actually do some-
thing because it is right as
opposed to because it gives
someone a political leg up.
Can our leaders do the right
thing? Can they put aside parti-
sanship and work at what is in
our interests and the interests of
the people of Iraq?
If they can, maybe we can do
something good in Iraq. If not
... it won't just be Iraq to pay
the price. For the sake of our
country, I hope they can.

dent. She can be contacted by

Bush should

offer penance


Editor:
After listening to the presi-
S dent's speech on Iraq, I was
surprised that the president
Finally admitted that he had
made mistakes in connection
with his decisions concerning
Sthe invasion of Iraq and the
S -subsequent conduct of the war.
.. In accepting responsibility for
Shis mistakes it occurred to me
that there should be conse-
quences for this. Not merely
consequences for the country.
but consequences for the presi-
S- dent personally.
-. Being a history buff, my
mind turned to the controversy
between Thomas a' Becket and
King Henry II of England in
1174 and how King Henry was
required to show his penance
for his complicity in the murder
- of Becket. The king was
S, required to walk barefoot to
_. - Westminster Cathedral while
S- being scourged.
S. Accordingly, I think it would
be most appropriate for
President Bush to walk bare-
S foot from the White House to
Sthe Capitol as a penance to
show an act of contrition.
Scourging would not be neces-
sary, the act of contrition being
S. demonstrated by his barefoot
state would be enough.
After years of arrogant and
inaccurate decisions, it would
Sbe more correct on his part than
S- to once more present the
lw American people with yet
another arrogant and question-
Sable decision.
In the nature of pulling out
all the stops to support his posi-
Stion is the suggestion that we
owe it to the soldiers who were
killed for his folly to keep
So going in Iraq to demonstrate
that they did not die in vain. In
other words, we should be will-
ing to have more of our kids
. killed in defense of his flawed

policies as a tribute, to honor
those-who have already died
needlessly.
What a foul card to play to
suggest to those who have
already lost a loved one that to
admit our mistakes would deni-
grate the quality of their sacri-
fice.
Now, rather than recognize
that the bulk of the fighting is in
the nature of a civil war
between Sunni and Shiite, he
characterizes all of the combat-
ants as belligerents, as if to sug-
gest that all of this chaos is part
of the insurgency fomented by
Al Quada to overthrow the gov-
ernment. More troops will turn
it around, bring us to victory.
It is painfully reminiscent of
the man who keeps repeating
the same act yet expects a dif-
ferent result. No reference is
made to the fact that we have a
vast number of U.S. troops
already in Baghdad and the fact
that this number has had little
effect in quelling the violence.
No, 20,000 more and a few con-
cessions by the Iraqis will win
the day.

Senator Joe Biden suggests
dividing the country into three
sections for Kurds, Sunni
and Shiites giving each sec-
tion a large degree of autonomy
but providing for a federal type
central government.
I looked into the history of
Iraq and to my amazement that
is precisely what the Ottoman
Empire did in 1534, when they
provided for three administra-
tive provinces located at Mosul,
in the north for the Kurds,
Baghdad in the center of the
area for the Sunni, and Basra in
the south for the Shia. Although
some home rule was permitted
by Istanbul, this administrative
division was kept in force by
the Ottoman until 1918 when
World War I ended, a period of
almost 500 years.The British
occupation and their establish-
ing a monarchy ultimately led
us to the mess with which we
are confronted today, but sepa-
rating the contesting factions
pretty well kept the peace for
500 years.
The mistake it would seem is
viewing Iraq as a long standing


sovereign political entity-when
in fact it is a recent creation,.a
product of British Colonialism
and the mandate system estab-
lished at the end of World War
I.
The Iraqis love to point to the
ancient cities of Mesopotamia,
and then claim "we gave the
world civilization." Perhaps
they should have kept some of
this "civilization" for them-
selves. The reality is that the
area now occupied by Iraq is
where the Mesopotamia existed
but beyond the geographic
locale there is little justification
for the current Iraqis to take
credit for the creation of civi-
lization.
Perhaps they should study
their own violent recent history
and seek a solution without
reliance on America to solve
their problems.
Meanwhile President Bush
would do well to examine Joe
Biden's proposal and stop wor-
rying about his place in history
as a brilliant military strategist.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Who's in

control?
When it comes to watch-
ing television, my husband,
Ken, is in control.
That's not to say he
monopolizes the television
or is inconsiderate. In fact,
we're pretty choosy about
what enters our home via
the TV. However, I'm pret-
ty embarrassed to admit my
lack of control.
Remote controls intimi-
date me; so I'm over-
whelmed by what most
people find a fun toy. If a
DVD or a video is put in
and requires different
remote controls, I am really
at a loss.
It's pretty lame not to be
able to turn on the TV in
one's home without first
having a consultation. I've
already picked up the
wrong remote only to mess
up the programming that's
in place. Not only have I
confused the computerized
mechanism, but I can't
watch the program I want
to see either. Ugh!
But, TV, VCR and DVD
remotes aren't the only
remote controls in the
house. Visit anyone's home
today and you're likely to
find remotes that control
ceiling fans, skylights,
radios, sound systems and
more too numerous to men-
tion.
Thankfully there's not a
remote control switch for
husbands and wives to use
on each other. I'd be at an
extreme disadvantage.
But, yet, even without
the aid of technology, we
may find ourselves trying
Sto control others. Our natu-
ral selfish tendencies can
easily lead us to exercising
control in any given situa-
tion whether conscious-
ly on unconsciously.
And worse yet, we may
like to imagine that we
have our own little worlds
totally under our control
and neglect to realize that
only God is in control. And
though we may think that
can be stifling, it's really
very freeing. In fact, it's
downright comforting.
I remember a time when
our personal world seemed
to be spinning out of con-
trol. Illness, a need to
move, financial pressures
and uncertainty had us
under the circumstances
and distressed. Then I
recalled a Bible verse
found in Romans 8:28,
NIV, that said, "And we
know that in all things God
works for the good of those
who love him, who have
been called according to his
purpose."
I climbed up from under-
neath the circumstances
and planted my feet on that
promise and clung to the
word "know." I Wiasn't
guessing. I knew God's
Word could be trusted. God
was (is) in control and I
had nothing to fear.
In Proverbs 3: 5 & 6 I,m
told to trust in the Lord
with all of my heart. It's
not for me to understand
everything; but, rather, to
acknowledge God in all my
ways and he'll direct my
path.
He did and he does. He's
in control. Selah.

Series Tuesday

Bob Crosby Bob Cats will perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at South Florida Community College auditori-
um, Avon Park.

SFCC presents Bob Crosby Bob Cats


AVON PARK Continuing into its fourth
year, the South Florida Community College Jazz
Series opens with the crowd pleasing Bob Crosby
Bob Cats.
Featuring a Chicago jazz style, the band has
played the globe for nearly 70 years under the
Crosby Bob Cat name. The band will perform at
7:30 p.m. Thursday at the SFCC University
Center Auditorium.
The band's large repertoire contains over 300
arrangements, including more than 200 original
Bob Crosby recordings. Those who remember
the early years of the band will recall the twin-
tenor saxophone sounds of musicians such as
Bud Freeman and Eddie Miller. The arrange-
ments also include the works of Jess Stacy, Ray
Bauduc, Bob Haggart, and Matty Matlock. Like
the original band in the late '30s, the current band
features outstanding soloists including Eddie
Metz, Jr., drums; John Orsini, tenor; and Terry
Myers.
The Bob Cats stay very busy, performing at
festivals throughout the United States, including
the Bix Beiderbecke Fest, Monterey Dixieland
Festival, Sacramento Jazz Jubilee, New Jersey
Jazz Festival, Elkhart Jazz Festival and many
others. They have also had cruise concerts on the
Caribbean circuit, the Mississippi Delta Queen,
and the American Queen. In addition, they do
many other concerts, fund-raisers, private parties,
and theater dates.
The Bob Cats' repertoire features a wide vari-
ety of styles in addition to the.Chicago sound,
including the music of New Orleans, New York,
and the West Coast traditional jazz sounds of
-Turk Murphy and Lu Watters. The also play
arrangements by Duke Ellington, Sidney Bechet,


Jelly Roll Morton, Earl Hines and Clarence
Williams.
The Bob Cats are led by Ed Metz Sr., who
played piano actively with the Crosby band when
Bob was still fronting the band. He began his
career in the Philadelphia area and moved on to
Michigan where he played with many groups,
including the New McKinney Cottonpickers.
Later, Metz moved to New Jersey and worked
with several bands including his own Heritage
Jazz Ensemble. Having played with most of the
country's jazz festivals, Metz enjoyed working
with the likes of Gene Krupa, Bobby Hackett,
Wild Bill Davidson, Bob Haggart and Billy
Butterfield. His discography includes 35 record-
ings to his credit.
The Bob Cats Band has featured two reeds for
most of its existence. Paul Hubbell and John
Orsini do most of the reed work, and Terry Myers
frequently works with them. Davie Jones, an
Orlando resident, is on trumpet; Harold Johnson,
trombone; Ed Metz, Jr., on drums; Bob Leary,
guitar, banjo and vocals; and Carl McVicker,
bass.
The co-sponsors for the 2007 Jazz Series are
Bill and Lisa Jarrett, Sevigny and Johnson Eye
Care, and Highlands Today.

instrumentals that showcase his
exceptional piano and vocal
ability. Songs such as "You
Raise Me Up," "Spirit Song,"
"Bring Him Home" from the
musical "Les Miserables" and
"You'll Never Walk Alone"
from the musical "Carousel"
sparkle, but his finest moment
ma\ be "Bridge Over Troubled

displays passion, conviction,
and inspires hope for o\ercom-
ing the trials of life
A native of Jackson. Miss..

Agricultural Research Service focuses on food safety


Some recent news from the
Agricultural Research Service-
December 2006
The Agricultural Research
Service is the research branch
of the U.S. Department of
Agriculture. In the past, its
work has brought us products
such as Deet (used to repel
mosquitoes) and Superslurper,
the magic stuff inside of diapers
that can soak up many times its
own weight in water. Its month-
ly publication, "Agricultural
Research," highlights some of
their current projects.
Food safety is a critical area
scientists focus their efforts. It's
the widely occurring microbes
like salmonella, listeria, campy-
lobacter and escherichia coli
which can lurk on food surfaces
and ruin anyone's picnic.
Without intervention, these
food invaders can cause diar-
rhea, vomiting, and other long-


term food-poisoning effects.
ARS scientists are developing
technologies needed for
responding to ever-changing
food safety regulatory concerns
and address issues to make sure
that the foods Americans eat are
safe and of the highest quality.
One technology scientists are
testing is nonthermal food pro-
cessing. Thermal sterilization is
the norm in the industry ("heat
kills germs"); however scien-
tists are exploring alternative
treatments for lowering food
borne pathogen levels. These
include high-pressure process-
ing, pulsed electric fields,
radio-frequency electric fields,
ultraviolet light, and irradiation.
High-pressure processing
will kill most vegetative
microorganisms such as E. coli.
Researchers found that high-
pressure processing can signifi-
cantly reduce E. coli popula-


tions in tomato juice
and liquid whole
eggs. Their research
also suggested that
multiple brief high-
pressure treatments
were more effective
than one lengthy
treatment using con-
tinuous pressure for
the same total
amount of time.
However, high-pres-
sure processing is not
effective at killing
microbial spores.
And right now, the
technology is too
pricey to be practical.


NEWS FROM

THE

WATERSHED

Jennifer Abbey


Pulsed electric fields are used
to kill yeasts, molds, and vege-
tative bacteria in liquid foods
(like tomato juice, liquid eggs,
and salad dressing) by breaking
down the cell membranes of the
microorganisms. In a study with
Kraft Foods, salad dressing was


inoculated with a heat
resistant spoilage
bacterium and treated
with pulsed electric
fields only and pulsed
electric fields fol-
lowed by mild heat.
In this study and
another with apple-
sauce, the treatments
of pulsed electric
fields followed by
mild heat produced
shelf stability at room
temperature.
Like the pulsed
electric field process,
radio-frequency elec-


tric field technology subjects
liquid foods to high electric
fields. But this procedure uses a
continuous alternating current
power supply, which costs less.
In one study, scientists applied
RFEF for three seconds to an
apple juice sample inoculated
with E. coli. The procedure was


more effective than convention-
al heating.
Ultraviolet light and irradia-
tion methods are other alterna-
tives under investigation.
Scientists used UV processing
on apple cider and found that
the UV treatment reduced pop-
ulations of bacteria by more
than 99 percent without chang-
ing the liquid's flavor, unlike
heat and chemical treatments.
Irradiation exposes food to a
low level of ionizing radiation
to kill bacteria, molds, yeasts,
parasites, and other microor-
ganisms that can lead to food
spoilage and illness if untreated.
Over the last 25 years, studies
have shown that eating irradiat-
ed' foods poses no increased
health risks for consumers.
Types of irradiated products
may include fruit, vegetables,
juice, meat, and meat substi-
tutes. At 3 to 5 cents per pound,


irradiation is slightly more
expensive than thermal process-
ing, but its success in deactivat-
ing spores and other microor-
ganisms has made it an option
for the food industry.
Foodborne pathogens are
varied and numerous, but
thanks in part to contributions
from ARS's scientists, knowl-
edge of pathogen prevention
improves constantly, and with
it, the safety of the nation's food
supply.

Preparing for spring vegetable gardens


I


0 Soil preparation well in advance to
Som ardnes la planting, preferably at


If you want vegetables grown
using clean water and few
chemicals, grow your own.
Growing your own food can
be fun, as well as other benefits
such as fresh air, sunshine,
mental therapy, exercise, enjoy-
ment, nutritious fresh vegeta-
bles and economic savings. The
good thing about Florida gar-
dens can be grown year-round,
but spring is the preferred sea-
son.

Steps in planning
a garden
Site Locate the garden
near the house for convenience
on a site close to a source of
water with at least six hours of
direct sunlight. With proper
care, vegetables may also be
included in the landscape
among ornamental plants.
Plan Before planning it
might be a good idea to make a
paper plan, including vegeta-
bles you intend to plant, where
and when.


IW
AS
*C


on whatever soil type
is available in the gar-
den plot, the soil may
be improved by bring-
ing in topsoil or a soil
mix, or by applying
liberal amounts of
organic materials.
Spade or plow the plot GRO
at least three weeks SEA
before planting. Then
rework the soil into Anna
fine firm seedbed at
planting time. But
before doing any of
this it would be wise to take a
sample of your soil to the local
extension office to be tested for
pH. The extension office is at
4509 George Blvd. Sebring.
Phone number is 402-6540.
Organic matter Most
soils benefit from applications
of various forms of organic
such as animal manure, rotten
leaves, and compost.
Thoroughly mix liberal
amounts of organic in the soil


Walt and Jan Ward will be dancing exhibition ballroom styles at 7
p.m. Friday at the Sebring Lions Club.

Dancing Wards


return to Sebring


SEBRING Walt and Jan
Ward will be dancing exhibi-
tion ballroom styles for the
Highlands-Social Dance Club at
at 7 p.m. Friday at the Sebring
Lions Club on Sebring
Parkway.
The Wards started ballroom
dancing on a cruise while cele-
brating their 25th wedding
anniversary. It prompted them
to take professional lessons and
they began mastering all ball-
room dance steps.
They soon became interested
in doing performances and
competition dancing. Last
October they finished their
eighth competition, participat-
ing in the Southeast Regional
UJSA Dance Competition in
Atlanta. "It was our most
thrilling event to date," said
Walt. "A third place finish in
the waltz, tango and fox-trot."
The Wards say it's never too
late to start.
In addition to the Wards
exhibition, enjoy ballroom
dancing to live music of the
Legacy All Stars. Members $5
and non-members $6.

Florida Community College

With the growth of the col-

E Irrigation and
Drainage Be sure to
provide sufficient
drainage of excessive
rainfall from your plot,
while arranging for
IING irrigation during dry
;ON periods. Frequency of
irrigation depends
oley upon your soil type;
S sandy soils need water
2 or 3 times a week.
Conserve water by
using mulch, organic matter,
and techniques such as drip irri-
gation. Make a slight depres-
sion at the base of plants to hold
water until absorbed by the soil.
N Weed control The pri-
mary purpose of cultivation is
to control weeds. Weeds are
easier to control when small. In
gardens, practical weed control
is best accomplished by hand-
pulling, hoeing, mechanical
cultivation, or mulching.


n Insect control Check the
garden twice weekly for insect
damage. Spray only affected
plants. Follow label directions.
n Pesticide precautions -
Consider all pesticides as
potential poisons. They should
be applied strictly according to
manufacturers, precautions and
recommendations. Always
wash vegetables from garden
thoroughly before using. Use
pesticides only as necessary to
control insects and diseases and
stop applications during the
harvesting season. Apply in
early evening to avoid killing
bees and reducing pollination.
Store pesticides in their original
containers. Keep them out of
the reach of children and other
irresponsible persons.

gardener affiliated with the
University of Florida's Institute

Avon Park Library showing films


AVON PARK The Avon
Park Library Film Series for
January and February will be
shown at noon on Saturdays in
the meeting room of the Avon
Park Library.
The schedule is as follows:
Jan. 20 "Little Miss
Sunshine" is directed by
Jonathan Dayton and 'Valerie
Faris in 2006 and runs 103 min-
utes. When 7-year-old Olive
wins a chance to compete in the
Little Miss Sunshine Pageant in
California, the Hoovers from
Albuquerque, a barely function-
al family, set out in their wonky


Volkswagen camper to rally
behind her. Coaching her is her
foul-mouthed grandfather who
recently was rejected from his
retirement home for outrageous
behavior. The send-up of those
odious child beauty pageants at
the end of the movie is worth
the time invested in it. The film
is "R" rated for language, some
sex and drug content.
Jan. 27 "The Black
Dahlia" is directed by Brian
DePalma in 2006, runs 122
minutes and will be shown. The
movie is taken from James
Ellroy's book of the same name.


It depicts one of the most noto-
rious unsolved crimes in or of
the last century. The victims
and aspiring actress with possi-
ble ties to the porno film indus-
try is found in a vacant lot with
her body severed in two parts
with most of her major organs
missing. The detectives
assigned to the case become
obsessed with it to the detri-
ment of their personal lives.
The movie is rated "R" for
strong violence, grisly images,
sexual content and language.

Boys 'post' a

win of their own

By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
Sports Writer
AVON PARK After his team's 2-1
loss to Sebring Thursday night, in which
a last-minute attempt to tie the game car-
omed off the crossbar, Lake Place head
coach Joshua Virkler must have taken a
bit of grim satisfaction to see another
county rival suffer a similar fate as his
Green Dragons downed host Avon Park
2-0 Friday night.
"We have had a string of one-goal loss-
es, including that one against Sebring,"
he said. "After a run like that, it's hard to
keep the guys from being deflated.
"But they did what they needed to do,
stayed focused and played very precise
soccer."
Junior Dragon Daniel
Lake Placid Flores started the scoring
2 with the only goal the visi-
2 tors would end up needing,
Avon Park slipping a shot past the Avon
O Park goalkeeper just 5:08
into the game.
Putting the final touches
on the first half was Hermello Villeda,
who found the back of the net to score
what proved to be the final goal of the
game.
It then was a matter of seeing if the
Red Devils could break a season-long
habit.
"Tonight was an exact replica of our
season," first-year Avon Park head coach
Jason Dent said. "We just can't seem to
score. We've scored five goals all year,
but even as we seem to get better, we
have bad luck."
Such' as a shot late in the second -half
that hit the bottom of the crossbar and
careened almost straight down, but land-
ed in front of the goal line where it was
then cleared by a Dragon defender.
"It's been a tough year, and we've lost
a few people along the way," Dent said.


DANIEL HOEHNE/News-Sun
Avon Park's David Pierce (left) and Alan Ramos of Lake Placid get tangled up going after
the ball Friday night.


"But the ones who have stuck it out, espe-
cially our seniors, have really impressed
me and have put forth great effort every
time out. We don't have any quitters on
this team."
-.-Much the same coidff'ie said of the
Lake Placid squad, for whom keeping
their focus took on an added burden
Friday after the tragedy that befell the
Lake Placid community.
But Virklei said it was a testament to
his team's makeup that they played the


way they did.
"They didn't seem too down, or too
pumped up," he said.
"They just kept their mind on the game
and executed well."
That focus will need to stay sharp, as
the team will take on DeSoto and Port
Charlotte this week before heading into
the district tournament next week.
Avon Park will have this week open
before heading to Palmetto for their open-
ing district tournament game.

Still too early

for bass to

start spawning
Florida's bass fishermen are
anticipating a good spawning
season for largemouth bass, but
they will have to shelve their
enthusiasm for a little while
before spawning really takes
off. Lake Istokpoga, Highlands
County's largest lake, isn't
known for early spawning.
Bass have just started bed-
ding in some of the other local
lakes. None of the fish camps
on Istokpoga report catches of
any great size. Crappie fisher-
men have been bringing in bet-
ter catches lately and some
have reported limit catches. As
the month progresses, the bass
and crappie fishing will pick up
and February should prove to
be a great month for both.
In the weeks leading up to
the spawning season, bass
become more interested in food
- not because of hunger but
rather because the fish needs to
strengthen and build up its
body for the reproduction sea-
son. The females will gain
more weight as the egg sacs
start forming.
The largest bass will bed ear-
liest, though we really don't
know why; there isn't any sci-
entific data to explain it. But
anglers' catches tend to show
that the bass which spawn first
are significantly larger than
those that spawn later.
The early spawners are also
going to be in shallower water
in a lake where the water is
stained, because stained waters
hold heat much better than
clear waters. Of course, the
shallowest waters warm first.
On a lake such as Arbuckle,
look for beds in water from a
depth of 2 feet right up to the
shoreline.
When nesting, the female
may deposit eggs in several dif-
ferent nests. Nests may contain
eggs from several different
females and number from a few
hundred to several thousand.
The eggs adhere to the bottom
of the nest and the male fertil-
izes them before taking over
the job of guarding the nest
against all intruders.
A lot depends on the water
temperature, but with an ideal
temperature the eggs will hatch
in about 10 days or less. The
bass is a member of the sunfish
family and, as with other mem-
bers of that family when the
eggs hatch, the young are on
their own. The largemouth fry
are very small and will usually
stay together in a swarm until
they are about an inch long.

Pursuit of football dream leads Crawford to Arena League


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK

Derrick Crawford a lot of
places since he graduated from
Avon Park High School in
1998.
It's taken him out to Texas, where he
was a standout defensive lineman in
college. The next stop was Cincinnati,
as he toiled on the practice squad for
the Bengals. Then came a stint playing
in Frankfurt, Germany, for NFL Europe.
Crawford's journey is far from over.
Next month, he will pack his bags for
yet another move this time heading
to Las Vegas to play in the Arena
Football League.
With all of that travel, it's little won-
der that Crawford is glad to be back
where he started, at least for a while.
"I'm just happy to be home,"


Crawford said. "This is my first
time being home for this long
(in several years), so I'm happy
to be here to enjoy my family
while I can, because I really
haven't had the chance to."
After earning All-State honors
in both football and basketball
for the Red Devils leading
his teams to the state final four


CRAWF


in both sports the 6-foot-4, 280-
pound Crawford played college ball for
Texas A&M-Commerce and continued
to be a star.
He was named an honorable mention
All-America by D2Football.com and
was a two-time Daktronics All-West
Region selection for the Lions. He was
also co-Defensive Most Valuable Player
and the Lone Star Conference
Defensive Lineman of the Year in 2003
after he led the conference and ranked
second in NCAA Division II with 8.5


sacks and ranked fourth in the
league in tackles for losses with
14.0 (1.27 per game).
That earned him a shot with
the Bengals and, after playing in
three preseason games, he
S wound up on the practice squad
for the entire 2004 season,
ORD which was still a big step up.
"It was a really big jump
because I played at a Division II school.
When I got (to the NFL), the speed of
the game was a whole lot quicker," he
said. "I played in the preseason games
and it was fun. I got some NFL experi-
ence and got to play with those guys. I
learned a pretty good bit and it made
me a better football player."
Crawford originally planned on join-
ing the Arena league in 2005 and
signed with the Orlando Predators, but
instead was re-signed by the Bengals
and sent to Europe to play for the


Frankfurt Galaxy. He started all 10
games during his season in NFL
Europe, recording 16 tackles and three
sacks.
"It was fun. I wish I had another
chance to go back over there and play
again," Crawford said If everything
works out with Arena ball, I won't have
to go back (in order to make it to the
NFL), but I would love to go back over
there."
The atmosphere of playing in Europe
was different than what he saw in the
U.S., Crawford said.
"It was kind of crazy. We stayed in a
hotel the whole time for three
months. I wasn't used to that. The
Frankfurt fan base was pretty good, but
everywhere else was not as good."
The football itself, however, was just
as competitive.

Andre Caldwell said he intends

his brother, New England
Patriots receiver Reche

"I want to get back (to. the

Continued from 1D
The male will guard them
until the swarm breaks up,
forming smaller groups.
During this period, the male
will swim about the young,
much like a cowpoke herding
dogies. He attempts to stay
between the brood and deeper
water. He will often zip out to
nip at other bass or bream that
seem to be taking a liking to the
young'uns.
At times, a fish will get past
him and attack the brood. The
male will try to stop all attack-
ers but he, in turn, will eat his
share of the young he has
guarded once they have broken
up.
Thankfully, enough of the
hundreds of thousands hatched
and nurtured to a self-defensive
size, our waters are well
stocked with largemouth bass.
When you catch that big
bass, send me a picture and a
note stating its weight and
length. I would also like the
details about when and where it
was taken and you'd look great
in the sports section holding

his mind. "He's coming out,"
Cohen said. "He's already
made the decision."
Caldwell caught 57 passes
for 577 yards and six touch-
downs for the Gators this sea-
son. He also threw a touchdown
pass in the SEC title game and
ran for a score.
Several reports also said
defensive end Jarvis Moss and
cornerback Ryan Smith had
decided to enter the NFL draft,
as expected. Both juniors said
after the title game they had
made a decision but wanted to
talk to their coaches before
announcing anything.

And play they did, cruising
to a 5-1 lead over host Avon
Park before Red Devil senior
Danielle West made things
interesting by scoring two late
goals to provide for the final
margin of 5-3.
Ironically, it was two consec-
utive goals from Green Dragon
Erica Resendiz that started the
scoring for Lake Placid before
Avon Park answered back on a
penalty-kick score from West.
Juribia Terrones then used
her head to its fullest advan-
tage, sliding in toward the goal
and then heading a ricochet past
the Avon Park goalkeeper to
make it 3-1 at the half.
The second-half scoring was
started by Maria Garza on a 20-
yard bender from the right wing
that crossed the line toward the
left corner, making it a 4-1
Dragon lead.
Rachel Cameron then used
her left foot to slip one past the
keeper before West answered
within a minute with her second
goal.
West then completed her hat
trick by floating a perfectly
placed penalty kick high and
right to elude the Dragon goal-
keeper.
"It was nice to see Danielle
get that hat trick in her final


PURSUIT
Continued from II)
"It was like playing in the NFL, but it
was a little dilTerent because a lot of the
guys were NFL rookies and they were try-
ing to get a shot. It was faster than being
on the practice squad, but then again it
wasn't as competitive. Over there, it was-
n't Willie Anderson from the Bengals or
Levi Jones. But it was some good compe-
tition."
While a foot injury and some family
issues kept his time in Europe from devel-
oping into another stint in the real NFL,
Crawford hasn't given up on his dream of
making it to the big time.


'They really

wanted to play

this one for Liz.'

regular-season game," Avon
Park head coach Greg Thacker
said.
"I've been stressing to her
and all the girls that you don't
need to kick it as hard as you
can to score, and it showed
when she placed that last one so
well.
"We did all right, considering
this was our first game since
just before Christmas," he con-
tinued.
"We were a little slow in the
first half, but they really came
on and made a game of it. If we
have this same type of effort at
district, we'll be all right."
That district test will come
Tuesday at Hardee as the Devils
take on Braden River.
The Dragons, meanwhile,
will travel to Frostproof
Tuesday to face McKeel
Academy.
"The girls really stepped it
up tonight and seemed to have
an extra level of energy,"
Galban said. "They really want-
ed to play this for Liz."


He's just going to try a different route.
That's why his next stop is Las Vegas,
where he reports to the Gladiators on Feb.
3 to get ready for the upcoming AFL sea-
son.
"I'll be ready for it. I've had some prac-
tice with it. I think I'm just ready to play
football right now, and if the Arena
League, then I'll do it to the best of my
ability," he said.
"It's going to be crazy. I'm looking for-
ward to it. I'm ready to be back in the
football spotlight and just be back out
there having fun again."
Crawford said he's been blessed that his
football ability has allowed him to see so
much of the world, but that he also would-

n't mind maybe ending up right back in
Avon Park one day as a coach.
"I greatly appreciate all that the sport
has done for me. When I'm back in Avon
Park, if the guys at my school need help,
I'm going to be right there to help them,
whether it's mental or physical. I'll be
right there for the guys at Avon Park High
School," he said.
"(Coaching) is something I've thought
about doing. I can't help but give a little
bit of guidance when I'm around the
guys."
Any potential coaching career will have
to wait, however, and Crawford hopes it
has to wait for a while.
He still has a lot more places to go.

REAL ESTATE MARKET
Charles J. Kovaleski


Consider your

downpayment

options
One of the biggest obsta-
cles to homeownership is
saving enough for the down
payment especially
among first-time homeown-
ers. With home prices con-
tinuing to rise, coming up
with a cash down payment
for a median-priced home
can be daunting, reaching
as much as $30,000 to
$40,000 on "starter homes"
in many Florida regions.
Home buyers and lenders
traditionally have targeted
20 percent of the cost of the
house as a down payment,
but that amount has
changed considerably in the
past few years.
Plunking down as little
as 5 or 10 percent of a
home's buying price has
become more common
among U.S. home buyers,
which means Americans
can own homes with much
less cash up front.
But there is a downside
to a lower down payment:
Homeowners with less than
20 percent down are
required to have private
mortgage insurance, or
PMI, which protects the
lender from the costs of
foreclosing on a house if a
borrower falls behind on
payments. PMI generally
costs between $45 to $60 a
month on every $100,000
borrowed.
To sidestep the need for
PMI, borrowers are increas-
ingly turning to 100 percent
-. financing, or "piggyback"
loans, which mean the bor-
rower takes two loans to
pay for the home. The first
loan is usually a conven-
tional first mortgage or
deed for 80 percent of the

More and more people are turning to the Internet to help find a
real estate agent familiar with an area they are interested in.

Buying or selling a home?

Find a local expert


For most of us, a home is
the largest and most important
purchase we will ever make. If
you're buying a home, you
want to find the house of your
dreams in the perfect neigh-
borhood. If you're selling your
home, you want to get the best
price in the shortest amount of
time.
In either case, working with
a real estate agent who is
familiar with the area will help
you achieve the results you
want. But finding a knowl-
edgeable agent can be diffi-
cult, especially if you're relo-
cating to a new city.
Point2Homes.com, a Web site
that lets you shop for homes
online, now makes locating
and evaluating a real estate
agent easier, too.
The site includes cities
throughout the United States
and Canada. For those looking
for vacation properties or sec-
ond homes, the site also covers
82 other countries, from
Argentina to Zambia. Looking
for a flat in France or a villa in
Venice? Point2Homes.com is a
great resource.
To use the site to find an
agent, just click on the Agents
tab, choose the state you're in
or moving to, select the city or


neighborhood you're interest-
ed in, and the site will show
you real estate professionals
who represent properties in the
area. With a.direct e-mail link,
as well as other contact infor-
mation, it's easy to get in
touch with these agents to
speak with them in person.
You might first want to
click through to some of their
Web sites, look at how well
they present their listings and
how many properties they cur-
rently represent usually a
good indicator of how well
they know the local market.
You can also use the site to
view the detailed property list-
ings, complete with photos
and property details, as well as
information about the home's
location.
Real estate agents provide
invaluable insight and advice
for home buyers and sellers.
Buyers can count on their
agent's expertise to fill them in
on details like how good the
local schools are, what they
can expect to pay in property
taxes and the name of a good
electrician, as well as useful
information about shopping,
parks, even local restaurants

Lake Placid Board of Realtors
The members of the Lake
Placid Board of Realtors con-
tributed more than $700 for the
Humane Society of Highlands
County.
The directors of the Lake
Placid Board of Realtors had
designated up to $500 in match-
ing funds before the project
began, bringing the total of
donations from the Realtors to
more than $1,200.
Annual banquet
Plans for the Lake Placid
Board of Realtors Annual
Awards and Recognition
Banquet are well under way, so
make plans now to attend.
It will be on Saturday, Feb.
10, at the Elks Club of Lake
Placid from 5:30-9 p.m., with
dancing and entertainment to
follow until midnight.
Suggested attire will be After-
Five apparel: semi-formal or
formal for the ladies, and a suit.
or slacks and jacket for the gen-
tlemen.
The Sweethearts theme was
selected to take advantage of
the Valentine's Day holiday.
The cost has not increased
over last year's ticket price of


$35 per person, and has been
available to Lake Placid Board
of Realtors since Jan. 1. Tickets
will be available to affiliate
members of the Lake Placid
Board of Realtors as of
Wednesday.
Keep in mind that the ban-
quet is almost always a sold-out
event and make reservations
early to ensure a seat.
Scholarship contest
Each year, the Florida
Association of Realtors (FAR)
sponsors a scholarship essay
contest for high school seniors.
To enter, eligible students must
write a 500-word essay on
"How Does a Realtor
Professional Benefit the
Community?"
The first-place winning entry
in each of FAR's 13 regional
districts receives a $5,000
scholarship; the second-place
winner in each district receives
a $1,500 scholarship award;
and third-place winners-each
receive a $500 scholarship
award.
FAR also provides three
$5,000 state-level scholarship
awards, for a total of $106,000
in scholarship funding.
The statewide scholarship


awards program is open only to
high school seniors who reside
in the state of Florida and plan
on continuing their education at
a college, university, technical
school or other institution of
higher learning. Children of
licensed real estate practitioners
are not eligible for contest
entry; nor are children whose
parents are employed by any
local Realtor board/association
or by the Florida Association of
Realtors.
In December, FAR sent
copies of the 2006-2007 schol-
arship/essay contest application
kit and other materials to senior
high schools' guidance offices
throughout Florida, and addi-
tional information is available
through your local Realtor's
office. More information can
also be found on page 7 of this
section.
Reminder
Remember, if you are a
Realtor with the Lake Placid
Board of Realtors, participating
in a community project for a
non-profit organization, let us
know so we can promote your
project. Call Leslie at the board
office, 465-3444, or Carol

Look before you leap


When viewing a home for the
first time, it can be difficult to
know if it will prove to be the
house or your dreams or a
never-ending nightmare. This is
why the Florida Association of
Building Inspectors has assem-
bled a consumer checklist to
help home buyers make a pre-
liminary evaluation prior to
calling in the professionals.
"You really should have a
professional home inspection of
any home you plan to buy so
that there are no hidden defects
to worry about later on," said
Everett Rawlings, a past presi-
dent of the association. "Before
you get to that final stage, there
are some simple checks you can
make yourself the first time you
are shown the home before
you let yourself fall in love with
it."
Look around the outside.
Take note of the overall impres-
sion. Is the house well kept?
Are the exterior walls straight
or out of line? Is the ground
sloped away from the house for
adequate drainage? Take a close
look.
Observe the condition of the
roof. Are shingles curling and
lifting? Find out how old the
roof is, and you will have a

and attractions. Often real
estate agents will know of prop-
erties that aren't officially on
the market, or that are going on
the market soon, and can let
you know if they match up with
your needs.
"According to the National
Association of Realtors' 2005
Profile of Home Buyers and
Sellers, the two most important
factors buyers and sellers con-
sider in choosing and agent are
reputation and knowledge of
the local neighborhood area,"
said Jeff Tomlin, manager of
market research at Point2


good idea of when you will
need to replace it. A tar and
gravel roof should last up to 12
years. Asphalt shingle and
wood shingles will last up to 15
years, and wood shakes will last
about 20 years.
Look closely at windows and
exterior door frames. Has the
glazing putty dried and shrunk?
Is the wood decayed? Are the
windows and doorframes
caulked and weather-stripped?
Check pavements and drive-
ways and horizontal brick sur-
faces. Have all cracks been
filled? Is any pavement bucking
from spreading underground
tree roots?
Look at the insulation in the
attic and crawl space. Is it ade-
quate? Does it cover the air
vents, preventing the house
from breathing and the onset of
wood rot'?
Test the plumbing. Turn on
all faucets and flush the toilets.
How is the water pressure? Do
you notice any leaks?
Look over the interior. Are
their signs of leaks or water
stains? Is plaster cracked? Are
walls and ceilings straight and
level?
Open the door of the fuse box
or circuit breakers without


Technologies, the company

the first time, consumers can
now access a directory of local
real estate professionals that's
organized by the neighborhoods
they buy and sell the most in."
If you're on the selling side,
a knowledgeable real estate
agent can help you get the best
price for your home. They
know the neighborhood and
probably have been in many of
the other properties for sale in
the area, so they can easily
compare features in your home
to others currently on the mar-
ket. Local agents will be famil-
iar with what is happening in
the marketplace so you can
price your property to sell


removing the panel cover. The
average house requires 10-amp
service at both 120 and 240
volts. Is it labeled as such?
There is no guarantee of safety
or adequacy. This is something
only a professional home
inspector or licensed electrician
can check.
Check the oil, gas and elec-
tric heating equipment. How
old is it? Has it been main-
tained? Ask to see the owner's
heating bills from the previous
year.
Look for evidence of ter-
mites on wood surfaces and
doorframes.
These are only the prelimi-
nary guidelines. If buyers find a
number of faults themselves,
they can be sure it reflects the
overall condition of the house.
The Florida Association of
Building Inspectors is a
statewide organization of resi-
dential and commercial build-
ing inspectors. It warns home
buyers to fight the temptation to
jump quickly at what may first
appear to be a good deal. For
details on home inspection cri-
teria and a list of members, call
(800) 544-3224 or visit the Web
site www.fabi.org.


quickly, but with maximum
return for you. Good real estate
agents can negotiate hard on
your behalf, and are experts in
marketing your property, both
to other agents and to individual
buyers.
Once you locate a prospec-
tive agent, ask plenty of ques-
tions to make sure you're mak-
ing the right choice.
Buyers and sellers will both
want to know how long the
agent has been in business, and
how long they've specialized in
their current location. You
should also ask how many
homes they sold last year.
Sellers should ask for a mar-
keting plan so they know exact-
ly what to expect.

Florida Association of Realtors offers $106,000 in scholarships


Florida high school seniors:
Are you filling out college
applications and poring over
potential scholarship programs?
Then make plans to enter the
Florida Association of Realtors
(FAR) 2006-2007
Scholarship/Essay Contest for
High School Seniors for a
chance to win up to $10,000 in
scholarship funding.
Entering the contest is easy.
Students write a typed, double-
spaced essay 500 words or
less on the topic, "How Does
a Realtor Professional Benefit
the Community?" This topic
allows students the freedom to
write about the wide range of
Realtor professionals who work
in a variety of fields, including
residential brokerage, commer-
cial brokerage, industrial and
office brokerage, farm and land
brokerage, real estate apprais-
ing, property management, land
development and real estate
counseling, to name just a few
of the general specialists. Or
essays may address such points
as the benefits of homeowner-
ship to society, or to families on
a personal level, or how the

home's purchase price; the sec-
ond is an equity loan equal to
20 percent of the cost of the
home and acts as the "down
payment."
Other common piggyback
loans include an 80/10/10, in
which the buyer makes a 10
percent down payment without
incurring the costs of PMI.
Check with your mortgage
lender regarding both private
mortgage insurance and piggy-
back loans, since many of
these plans have drawbacks
including balloon payments or
pre-payment penalties.
Whether you plan to finance
your entire home purchase or
put a portion down, you'll still
need to consider ways to
increase your savings if
nothing else to cover the clos-
ing costs on your new home.
Consider the following tips:

Use your IRA
If you're a first-time home
buyer, you can use up to
$10,000 in IRA funds as a
down payment without being
penalized by the IRS for early
withdrawal. If you are married,
you and your spouse can both
take $10,000 from the IRA-
totaling $20,000 for down pay-
ment. You can also borrow
against your 401(k) for the
down payment, but you will be

estate encourages economic
growth.
"Florida Realtors are
involved in their communities,
dedicated to improving the
quality of life for all the citizens
of Florida. Our successful
scholarship program is just one
example of how the Florida
Association of Realtors looks
into the future," said 2007 FAR
President Nancy Riley.
"Tomorrow's Florida depends
on the youth of today realizing
their dreams of a higher educa-
tion and we are proud to have a
part in making that dream come
true."
Now in its seventh year,
FAR's scholarship program
benefits students from across
the state, with prize money
going to the first-, second- and
third-place essays in each of the
Association's 13 districts in the
state. Students turning in the top
district-winning essays will
each win a $5,000 scholarship
prize while the second-place
entries will each receive a
$1,500 scholarship award. Plus,
students will be recognized for


required to pay back the
amount with interest. The
good news is that the interest
payments are going back into
your own 401(k).
Pay off credit cards
If you carry large credit card
balances, you are paying steep
monthly interest charges,
which could be better used in
saving towards a down pay-
ment on a home. In addition,
large credit card balances can
hurt your credit score, which
helps determine whether you
gain access to mortgage money
at the best possible rates.

Ask for a gift
One in four first-time buyers
get some financial help from
their parents or other relatives,
usually in the form of a tax-
free gift of $11,000 per year
per taxpayer. But make sure
the money is truly a gift and
not simply a loan: It is nearly
impossible to get a convention-
al mortgage if your down pay-
ment is from borrowed
sources. Most lenders will ask
the donors to sign a "gift let-
ter" stating they have no iinten-
tion of requiring the buyer to
pay the money back.
Use down payment assis-
tance programs. Borrowers in
all income ranges can receive
financial assistance from
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,
the governmental agencies that
buy mortgages and package
them as investments. The pro-

The 13 district-winning essays
will go on to compete to win
three $5,000 FAR scholarships
on the statewide level, for a
total of $106,000 in scholarship
awards. All essays, along with
an official Essay Cover Form,
must be postmarked no later
than March 2 and mailed to the
Florida Association of Realtors,

P.O. Box 725025, Orlando, FL

Florida's existing housing market


still showing signs of a slowdown


Sales of existing homes and
condos in Florida were down in
November traditionally a
slow month for the housing sec-
tor; at the same time many mar-
kets reported that the inventory
of homes available for sale con-
tinued to stabilize.
A total of 11,912 existing sin-
gle-family homes sold
statewide last month, a decrease
of 30 percent from the 17,088
homes sold during the previous
November, according to the
Florida Association of Realtors
(FAR). The statewide existing-
home median price was
$242,500 last month; a year
ago, it was $250,400 for a
decrease of three percent
according to FAR.
In November 2001, the
statewide median sales price
was $128,800, representing an
increase of about 88.3 percent
over the five-year period,
according to FAR records. The
median is a typical market price
where half the homes sold for
more, half sold for less.
Nationally, the median sales
price for existing single-family
homes was $221,300 in
October, down 3.4 percent from
a year ago, according to the
National Association of
Realtors (NAR). In California,
the statewide median resales
price was $548,680 in October;
in Massachusetts, it was
$341,000; in Maryland, it was
$307,135; and in New York, it
was $235,000.
Housing market fundamen-
tals are improving, according to
NAR's latest market outlook
and 2006 is expected to be the
third strongest sales year on
record nationally. NAR Chief
Economist David Lereah notes
that strong job creation, histori-
cally low and declining mort-
gage interest rates and the
demographics of a growing
population provide a solid
foundation for homeownership
opportunities. Following a peri-
od of price adjustment, Lereah
predicts buyers will show more
confidence in the market,
adding that "a lift to home sales
should be apparent in the first
quarter of 2007."


Looking to Florida's existing
condominium market, sales
also declined in November with
a total of 3,346 condos sold
statewide compared to 5,198 in
November 2005 for a 36 per-
cent decrease, according to
FAR. The statewide median
sales prior for condos last
month was $206,000, a year
ago, it was $215,100 for a 4
percent decrease. The national
median existing condo price in
October 2006 was $214,300,
according to NAR.
According to Freddie Mac, a
30-year fixed-rate mortgage
averaged 6.24 percent last
month, down from 6.33 percent
in November 2005. FAR's sales
figures reflect closings, which
typically occur 30-90 days after
sales contracts are written.
Among the state's larger
markets, the Orlando metropol-
itan statistical area (MSA)
reported 1,705 existing homes
sold last month, compared to
2,656 homes sold a year ago for
a 36 percent decrease. The mar-
ket's median existing home
price increased 4 percent to
$263,600; a year ago, it was
$254,600. A total of 276 exist-
ing condos changed hands in
Orlando in November for a 41
percent decrease over the 467
condos sold the previous year.
The market's median existing
condo price was $171,800; a
year ago, it was $182,400 for a
6 percent decrease.
Randy Martin, president of
the Orlando Regional Realtor
Association and a broker-asso-
ciate with RE/MAX 200 Realty
Inc. in Winter Park, says that
the Orlando area housing mar-
ket is expected to finish out
2006 as the second best year on
record in terms of sales of sin-
gle-family existing homes.
"With inventory at an all-time
high and mortgage interest rates
at an all-time low, it offers a
great opportunity for buyers -
one that is unlikely to be repli-
cated," he says. "The latest eco-
nomic forecasts suggest that the
real estate market correction is
coming to an end and that home
prices will not be going any
lower."
Of the state's smaller mar-


kets, the Fort Pierce-Port St.
Lucie MSA reported a total of
305 existing homes sold in
November compared to 459
homes sold a year earlier for a
34 percent decrease. The area's
median existing home sales
price was $247,600 last month;
a year ago, it was $261,000 for
a 5 percent decrease. Fifty-three
existing condos sold in the
MSA last month for a 2 percent
decrease from the 54 condos
sold a year ago. The market's
median existing condo price
remained relatively flat at
$174,000; a year ago, it was
$173,300.
"New business and industries
are taking a strong interest in
the region, following the lead of
the Torrey Pines molecular
research institute," says Jerry
Mabus, president of the
Realtors Association of St.
Lucie and broker associate with
All Florida Realty Services in
Port St. Lucie. "Once an inter-
national player comes into a
community, it changes every-
thing. Our area is prime for this
kind of business development
and all factors are in play for
the area to experience booming
growth. Looking to 2007 and
beyond, I see only good things
ahead for the St. Lucie area."
Charts showing statistics for
Florida and its 20 MSAs are
attached. One chart compares
the volume of existing, single-
family home sales and median
sales prices in November 2006
to November 2005, based on
Realtor transactions within the -
MSAs. The other chart com-
pares the volume of existing
condo sales and median sales
prices in November 2006 to
November 2005, based on
Realtor transactions within the
MSAs.
