Landlord ordinances





require more review


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK There will be more
delay in getting two new city ordinances
on line. In fact, discussion had hardly
begun at Monday night's city council
meeting when it became clear more
work on the ordinances is needed.
At issue are Ordinance 16-06, known
as the "Minimum Maintenance
Standards For Structures, Equipment,
and Exterior Properties", and Ordinance
17-06, known as the "Rental Housing
Local Business Tax Receipt and
Inspection Ordinance."
These ordinances, largely drawn from
work done in other cities, are part of the
council's effort to address citizen com-
plaints about absentee landlords, run
down property and overcrowded hous-
ing.
But the ordinances have problems as
written.
One of the problems is imprecise lan-
guage.
For example, Larry Rogers, a local
Realtor in the audience at Monday
night's meeting, pointed out that in a
subsection of Ordinance 16-06, it inad-
vertently outlawed grass lawns.
Referring to lawn maintenance, the
ordinance says, "Weeds shall be defined
as all grasses, annual plants and vegeta-


tion, other than trees and shrubs provid-
ed; however, this term shall not include
cultivated flowers and gardens."
Another problem was the result of the
cut and paste method used for some of
the provisions, having taken whole sec-
tions from other work.
For example, a subsection referring to
residential parking requirements has
standards including painted lines that
only apply to commercial parking lots.
In addition to the problems involved
in creating precise legislation, there
were significant differences of opinion
among the council members as to how
far some of the restrictions should go.
The issue of parking took an excited
turn with a discussion of how many, and
where, cars may.park at a home.
The concern, initially raised by
Councilman Joe Wright, was the
unsightliness of cars jammed onto torn
up front lawns, and the hazard poorly
parked cars created on narrow city
streets.
Councilman George Hall, poking fun
at himself as he said it, saying he'll
never get re-elected, felt all driveways
should be black top, concrete or covered
with other stabilizing medium like grav-

el.
"If you can afford a vehicle, you can
afford to pave an area to park it," he


said. "And if you can't afford to pave,
then don't buy a car."
That drew a response from.
Councilwoman Brenda Gray. "We can't
exactly expect every citizen to pave
their driveway.
"We're not here to put a burden on
the people of Avon Park," she said.
City Attorney Gerald T. Buhr raised
the core issues. The ordinances, he said,
had to "balance between due process,
and the rights of the city."
And the language had to "be suffi-
ciently clear so that code enforcement
can enforce it. Make sure it's something
you want to enforce, and will enforce,"
he warned, adding it was better to make
changes early.
As a first reading has taken place it
was decided to slow the process, allow-
ing City Manager C.B. Shirey and Buhr
time to more closely review the ordi-
nances and tighten the language.
Depending on their findings, the council
will decide to either have a new first
reading, or proceed on to the second
reading.
Wright suggested that city staff create
three different versions of the ordi-
nances, as this would allow for more
feedback and versatility. No date has
been set to bring the ordinances back to
the council.

Two weeks into the spring
semester and all eyes are on
standardized testing.
The Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test is scheduled
for late February and early
March, and schools have reason
to be anxious.
"Every year is a different
challenge," Lake Placid Middle
School Principal Derrel Bryan
said. "Now that we are back
from winter break, everyone is
extremely focused on FCAT."
Last school year, Highlands
County benefited from two
local schools receiving A
grades for the first time.
The newest A schools were
Lake Placid Middle School and


Park Elementary School, with
Cracker Trail Elementary, Hill-
Gustat and Sebring middle
schools also achieving A grades
for the 2005-2006 school year.
Neither Lake Placid Middle
nor Park Elementary schools
had achieved A grades in the
previous seven years of FCAT,
with LPMS, improving on the
prior year's B grade and Park
Elementary progressing sub-
stantially from D grades in the
2003-04 and 2004-05 school
years.
Park Elementary Principal
Joyce McClelland made sure
her school advanced by institut-
ing various programs and after-
school tutoring sessions, but

Second-grader Johnny Perry, of Park Elementary School in Avon Park, asks for help from Vicki
Colman, the school's technology paraprofessional. Perry is a student of Julie Elliot and is spending time
with his classmates in the computer lab to work on math skills. The program, upgraded last year, is part
of a school-wide network that can help all students with math and reading skills, regardless if they are
achieving below or above grade level, Principal Joyce McClelland said.

Scholarship


established


in Sottile's


memory

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING The family of slain
Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Nicholas
G. Sottile has created a memorial
scholarship in his honor.
Killed Jan. 12 during a traffic stop
on U.S. 27 North, just south of
Cloverleaf Road, Sottile was buried
Jan. 16 during a funeral that was
attended by about 1,500 civilians and
uniformed law enforcement officers
from across the country.
Two suspects were arrested and are
being held without bond at the
Highlands County Detention Center
pending prosecution.
Sebring Police Cmdr. Steve Carr,
whose sister Elizabeth is Sottile's
widow, said the fund will benefit
Highlands County high school gradu-
ates in the form of sports, education or
law enforcement scholarships.
How many and in what fiscal
amounts will be based on future con-
tributions and fund- raisers, Carr said.
Specific eligibility criteria and appli-
cation process will be formally
announced at a later date.
"Nick was involved for a number of
years in Dixie Youth Baseball," Carr
said, explaining that Nick and Liz
Sottile ran the Lake Placid concession
stand at the baseball field.
Checks made out to the fund's
name can be deposited with any
Highlands Independent Bank, or
mailed directly to the offices at 120
U.S. 27 South, Lake Placid, FL,
33852, according to bank Senior-vice
president David H. Veley.



Council


takes on


CRA duties

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
AVON PARK The city's current
Community RedeIelopment Agencies
are not in compliance with the Florida
statutes that created them. At least
they weren't as the Avon Park City
Council meeting began Monday night.
That was the judgment of City
Attorney Gerald T. Buhr and
Councilman Joe Wright, both of
whom had researched the issue fol-
lowing the council's Jan. 8 meeting,
with a request to report back to the
whole council.
Community redevelopment agen-
cies were created by the state to direct
some tax dollars to where they are
most needed.
An area must be blighted to qualify
for these funds, which come from the
difference between what the actual tax
revenue is and what it would be if the

for introducing fresh fruits and
baby carrots on a daily basis,
while de-emphasizing canned

more than $5,000; and in
Sebring, the Tanglewood team
raised nearly $20,000.
Sharing her memories of a
battle with cancer, Benavides
recalled 1990, the year doctors
diagnosed her 9-yearrold son's
Burkitts lymphoma, a mon-
strous enemy permeating his
young body and shutting down
most of his vital organs.
Years later, at the age of 25,
her son's victory over cancer is
a living testimony to the vital
role thousands of people play in
these annual relays.
Buoyed by recent reports of
rising rates of cancer survival,
team members here, and across
the nation, plan to surge for-
ward again toward a finish line
once seemingly beyond their
reach. No one knows when con-
quering cancer becomes mis-
sion accomplished, but each


"Jonathan shows the most
positive of all attitudes," said
Dickl's FAME nominator,
Steve Hume, of Innovative
Concept Group. "He always
looks for the best way to
achieve results through a posi-
tive approach with appreciation
for others." /
Dickl is a member of the
District Health Advisory
Committee, VERB Committee,
School Wellness Policy
Committee, Highlands County
Community Health
Improvement Planning, and the
School Nutrition Association.
He is currently working' with
Florida state legislators on a
pilot program for childhood
obesity prevention.
Dickl's annual food service
budget at Highlands County
schools is $6.2 million in a dis-
trict with an enrollment of
12,500 students.
On Jan. 16, he joined Volusia

Saturday motorcycle accident kills

passenger, critically injures driver


News-Sun
A motorcycle accident
Saturday night claimed the life
of a Port St. Lucie resident and
sent another to the hospital in
critical condition.
Robert Bassett, 65, was driv-
ing a 1992 Harley-Davidson
motorcycle with his passenger
Marilyn Roper, 74. Bassett was
traveling northbound on U.S.
27 just north of Horn Road,
according to Florida Highway
Patrol Cpl. Albert Middleton's
accident report. Bassett tried to


change lanes, but the roadway
in that area is under construc-
tion and has uneven lanes.
Bassett lost control of the
motorcycle while changing
lanes, the report said, and it
skidded to rest in the inside lane
of the highway. Roper died on
the scene from injuries sus-
tained in the crash. The acci-
dent was not alcohol-related.
Bassett was transported to
Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort
Myers, where he was listed in
critical condition.


team member now knows their
individual contributions are not
wasted.
These thousands of dollars
help the American Cancer
Society fund research, educa-
tion, advocacy and patient serv-
ices.
"Money does have to leave
the community to aid research,
however, once the research is
done the results come back to
our community to benefit those
whose lives have been touched
by cancer," Benavides said. "If
the money raised in our com-
munity did not leave, then no
one in our community would
benefit from a cure."
Someone must do the
research, she added.
In this state alone, 40,000.
people will die of cancer -
roughly the population of Palm


Beach Gardens and another
98,000 people about the
population of West Palm Beach
- will be told they have can-
cer.
This year, more than 700
Highlands County residents
will learn they have cancer;
more than 300 residents will
succumb to this historic enemy.
Most recent numbers for this
county show lung cancer repre-
sents 22 percent of all cancers
- 164 cases, with 106 deaths
- and remains the leading
cause of cancer death in both
men and women.
Colon cancer accounts for 13
percent of all cancer. In 2006,
98 patients were diagnosed with
this form of cancer, and 27 lost
the battle. However, this same
American Cancer Society
report shows early diagnosis
produces a 90 percent survival


rate, although only about one
third of these patients were
diagnosed in this stage.
Claiming about 10 percent of
all cancers diagnosed here,
breast cancer was diagnosed in
77 residents, with more than 80
percent surviving to date.
"The work is not done,"
Benavides said as she looked
forward to the local relays in
late March and in April.
"We need to continue to raise
money in this fight and this is
what Relay for Life does," she
said.
"My son is alive today
because of those who have sup-
ported the American Cancer
Society."
Relay for Life in Lake Placid
will be March 30-31; April 14-
15 in Avon Park; and April 28-
29, in Sebring.

Highlands Art League receives


$5,000 for village renovations


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Jerry Miller of
Progress Energy joined Don
Elwell and Alice Stroppel on a
tour of the newly renovated
north room of Highlands Art
League's Visual Art Center
(formerly the Magnolia
Restaurant).
Progress Energy donated
$5,000 for a cornerstone to be
place on the center once com-
pleted. Over the years, Progress
Energy has been a consistent
sponsor of the November Fine
Arts and Crafts Festival and
enthusiastic supporter of The
Village project. The company's
generous participation at this
level through the Cornerstone
Society has provided a signifi-
cant boost toward completion


of the Visual Art Center repairs
of damages sustained during
the 2004 hurricane season.
For a donation of $5,000 or
more, a cornerstone plaque with
the donor's name is placed on
the building being restored.
The structural issues have
been addressed leaving electric,
air-conditioning, and plumbing
repairs to be done.
The board and membership,
with the Village a priority, are
excited and totally committed
to completion of this phase as
funds become available. The
center will not only enable the
league to facilitate more classes
and activities under its services
offered to the community, but
will provide a venue for artist's


workshops generating a source
of income for building mainte-
nance and program expansion.
It is estimated that $50,000 is
still needed to complete the
building and classroom spaces.
Restoration of the Yellow
House at The Village was made
possible in part by the Legacy
Club and the Cornerstone
Society, as well as .generous
donations from local contrac-
tors. The art league welcomes
businesses, contractors and
individuals to lend their support
to this worthwhile project.
For information on the
Cornerstone Society and the
Legacy Club, or other ways to
help, call Alice Stroppel at the
art league, 385-5312.

Prayers answered at Russian orphanage


By TREY CHRISTY
News-Sun
In a snowy Russian February
when Jay and Kellie Zimmers'
plane landed and they took a
four-hour drive to Ivanovo.
There they found the answer
to their prayers at an orphanage.
"Adopting from Russia was a
win/win situation," Jay said.
"Both Kellie and I have a strong
German heritage so we wanted
to adopt from that part of
Europe, and Russia has more
orphans now than it did after
World War II because the econ-
omy is so bad."
So the Zimmers were able to
fulfill their dreams of parent-
hood while doing a service to
kids who normally may not
have much of a chance.
"There aren't a lot of oppor-
tunities for Russian orphans
like there are for Americans,"
Jay said. "In the United States
you can become anything, but
in Russia you are marked an
orphan for life and it's nearly
impossible to go to college."
The Zimmers, now the
Zimmer family, were joined by
Levi, 6, and his biological sister
Lydia, 3, on Aug. 27, 2006.
The Zimmers were focused
on their careers first, and now
both have jobs as professors at
South Florida Community
College where Jay teaches
anatomy and Kellie teaches
math.
They still wanted kids after
being settled in their careers
and heard about an adoption
seminar in Orlando.
There was considerable
paperwork involved from both
the United States and Russian
governments so the process was
a lengthy one.
The Zimmers started in
November 2004, taking them
nearly 21 months from the time
they first started the procedure
to the time they were officially
parents.
Thrust into the world of par-
enting a 6- and 3-year-old has
transformed the Zimmer house-
hold.
"I sleep a lot less and carry a
much larger purse," Kellie said.
"It's been a 'big adjustment
but it's been \ orths while Jay
added.
The first time Levi was in
Wal-Mart was a memorable


D


experience, especially for his
parents.
"I was in the clearance area
and there were some toys in
there. Levi was crying once we
left and I wondered if some-
thing had triggered a bad mem-
ory so we called up a translator
to make sure he wasn't in pain
or feeling ill," Jay said. "It turns
out he saw an action figure that
he wanted, and he didn't get it
and was upset."
Since that time Levi has
picked up a substantial amount
of English language and can
communicate with his parents.
He recently started attending
kindergarten.
Neither Levi or Lydia knew
any English when they came to
the United States mere months
ago, but now Levi is singing
songs, talking clearly and
knows his ABC's without a
hitch.
Like any 6-year-old boy, he
enjoys sports and has taken a
liking to T-ball and soccer.

Heartland Idol Junior begins CRA
Continued from 1A


qualifying rounds Thursday


By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
SEBRING The Circle will
once again be the site of a
singing competition, only this
time the voices will be a little
younger.
The Heartland Idol Junior
competition begins Thursday
with the first of two qualifying
rounds that will be held at the
Circle.
In order to increase the visi-
bility of Junior Idol, the semifi-
nals and finals competitions
will take place at the Highlands
County Fairgrounds.
"Junior Idol doesn't draw as
big of a crowd as regular
Heartland Idol," Sarah Pallone
of the Sebring Chamber of
Commerce said. "There's not
an awareness out there yet.
That's why we're doing the last
shows at the fair."
Pallone said the amount of
people that will be at the fair-
grounds during the two nights
will give the event more expo-
sure. Heartland Idol has never
been held during the fair before.
The contest is divided into
two age divisions. Young
singers ages 12 and under com-


pete in the Junior Division,
while those aged 13 to 17 will
compete in the Teen Idol divi-
sion. The first qualifying round
will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday,
and the second qualifying
round will be held Feb. 1, also
at 6.
The contest will then shift to
the fairgrounds for the Feb. 10
semifinals and Feb. 17 finals
competitions.
The scoring system at
Heartland Idol Junior is similar
to the regular Heartland Idol
competition, but the rules of
Junior Idol are slightly differ-
ent. Each contestant will be
judged by up to seven judges in
three distinct areas vocal per-
formance and stage presence,
worth 10 points apiece, and
wardrobe or costume, worth
five.
Because of the age of the
contestants, songs dealing with
sexual matters or other sugges-
tive topics will not be allowed,
nor will music with explicit or
offensive lyrics. Participating
contestants must also abide by
the current dress code of the
Highlands County School
Board (although hats and any


kind of footwear are allowable).
Contestants will perform
songs no longer than 90 sec-
onds in length in the qualifying
rounds, and contestants can
sing with musical accompani-
ment if they choose. Five con-
testants from each of the two
divisions will advance to the
semifinals, with 20 semifinal-
ists total.
In the semifinals, contestants
can sing songs up to two min-
utes in length. Five from each
division will advance from
there to the finals.
Top prize in the Junior divi-
sion is a $500 savings bond.
Second place will receive a
$250 savings bond, third place
$100, fourth place $50, and
fifth place $25. The prize break-
down in the Teen division is the
same, except the prizes will be
distributed as gift cards instead.
Each semifinalist will also
receive three complimentary
tickets to the fair that evening.
Contestants can sign up
Thursday night, up until the
contest begins, and the entry fee
is $10. For more information,
contact the Sebring Chamber of
Commerce at 385-8448.


American Party of Florida organizes


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands County voters can
now register as members of the newly formed
American Party of Florida.
"As far as I know, I'm the only card-carrying
member in the state," Tom Macklin said,
announcing the party's inaugural meeting.
At 6 p.m. Thursday at the Kenilworth Lodge in
Sebring, Macklin will announce the chairman for
the local executive committee.
From that point on, the committee's makeup
will be up to that unnamed chairman.
Thursday's meeting is open to the public,


FCAT
Continued from 1A
didn't think any one program
-was more important than the
commitment of her staff.
"The dedication of the peo-
ple that work here, that is the
number one reason for our
improvement over any pro-
gram," McClelland said. "They
come here serious about their
work and are dedicated to doing
a great job."
Park Elementary School
showed marked improvements
on the progress of the lowest 25
percent of students based on
reading scores, jumping an
astonishing 45 percent to 81
percent of students showing
gains.
Seventy-five percent of stu-
dents are now meeting high
standards in writing, scoring at
FCAT level 3.5 and above, an
improvement of 34 percent
from last year.
New technology has helped
FCAT scores come up
McClelland said, with the addi-
tion of a new program for read-
ing and math. The program is
available schoolwide in all of
the classrooms and computer
labs.
It is for first grade up to fifth
and teaches kids at the level
they are achieving.
"Any student can benefit
from this program,"
McClelland said. "Whether
they are learning above or
below grade level."
After-school tutoring also
played a key role in the
improvement of FCAT scores.
Prior to last year, Park
Elementary only had reading
tutors after school, but none for
math and writing.
The addition of new subjects
covered in after-school tutor-
ing, together with staff develop-
ment in the writing field, helped
the writing grade improve as
much as it did, McClelland
said.
This year both Park
Elementary and LPMS are con-
cerned with keeping their new
A grades.
Making the jump from a D
school to an A school, it is a
prerogative for Park
Elementary to once again show
results.
"When you make as many
gains as we did last year, it is
very stressful to try and main-
tain after you get to that point,"
McClelland said. "It's wonder-
ful when you make those
achievements but it's very chal-


whether they are interested in a new political
home or just curious, Macklin said inclusion is
his goal. His distribution list grows daily.
' Thus far, the American Party of Florida has
three planks term limits, legal immigration
and the enforcement of existing immigration
laws and accountability of elected/appointed offi-
cials.
Guest speakers for the event include a training
coordinator for the Minutemen of Florida, who'll
speak about the national immigration situation.
For details, Macklin can be reached at 453-
7223, or log on to www.americanpartyofflori-
da.us/home_page.php.


lenging to think we've got to do
it again."
Bryan agreed that keeping
the high grade is a priority.
"Its a source of pride for us,"
Bryan said.
LPMS has been achieving at
a very high level with an A last
year and four high B grades the
years before that.
The school finally achieved
its A grade thanks to consider-
able gains in reading across the
board, including the success of
the lowest 25 percent of stu-
dents.


"We deliberately target kids
that need help," Bryan said.
"We find their weakness and
form a strategy."
Bryan is excited about more
than just FCAT scores, he says
the :school is heading in the
right direction overall.
"I think we've been doing
better than ever before, because
of accountability with FCAT,
but there is a lot more that we
are working on. We are building
character and whole students,
not just ones that can pass
FCAT."


area was prosperous. The long-
term goal is to improve a neigh-
borhood to the point it no
longer qualifies for the funds.
Over time, Avon Park has
created three separate CRA
areas. The Main Street CRA
was created first, then the
Airport CRA, and finally the
Southside CRA.
As each board was created,
so was a governing board to
direct it, made up of individuals
who lived or worked in the
same area, as per Florida
statute.

'Women in the
AVON PARK A 20-piece
art exhibit, "Women in the
Bible (Revisited)" returns to
South Florida Community
College through Feb. 8 in the
SFCC Auditorium Lobby
Gallery.
The public is invited to view
the popular collection during
public Auditorium performanc-
es, or after calling the Art
Department at 784-7195.
Sebring artist Reese-Anne
Boyce originally created the
series for a 2001 exhibit at the
college, which SFCC art pro-
fessor Cathy Futral suggested
after Boyce had earlier attended
a watercolor collage workshop
the previous year.
Futral's suggestion to create
an entire show proved initially
daunting for the retired art
teacher and therapist, who had
never before created such a vol-
ume of work on one subject.
However, after prayerful con-
sultation, she decided that she
had been created with limitless
creativity, and determined to
"get out of the way" of the cre-
ative process required.
Boyce credits Lake Placid
artist Llewellyn Rinald for
introducing her to the use of
mixed media collage as a novel
form of expression. "I took to
this method of cutting, tearing,
pasting, gluing and painting
like a duck to water," Boyce
recalled. Watercolor techniques
she'd used before were not as
forgiving, she realized. The
new form was forgiving, "just


The problem, Buhr and
Wright said, was that while
there should be three separate
accounts and three customized
redevelopment plans, one for
each CRA, there should be only
one governing board to oversee
the plans and dispense the
funds. This meant Avon Park,
with three CRA governing
boards, was out of compliance..
The trust funds, containing
the CRA money to be dis-
persed, were set up correctly,
City Manager C.B. Shirey told
the council.
Wright insisted that the coun-
cil move to correct the problem.
"I have come to the conclu-
sion that our CRAs are not
properly constituted," he said.


"I don't think we can duck this.
I am prepared to make a
motion."
After some discussion, large-
ly to ascertain if advisory
boards were permitted, and if
currently sitting boards could
be transferred to an advisory
status if they were, the council
voted unanimously to take on
the role of CRA governing
board, agreeing to a monthly
meeting to run immediately fol-
lowing a city council session.
The exact day is yet to be decid-
ed.
However, council members
also made it very clear they
would count on the input from
the three different advisory
boards.


Bible' exhibit returns to SFCC


like God."
At first, Boyce began study-
ing female figures in both the
Old and New Testaments of the
Bible. She started a notebook
listing qualities and stories
associated with many, and
began sketching alongside
them.
"I learned how intrinsically
connected the Old and New
Testaments are to each other,"
she recalled. "They are both
part of the woven fabric of the
Holy Word."
She then began scanning
magazines for faces of women
she thought her viewers could
relate to. "Wonderful women's
faces jumped out at me. I knew
that this face would be perfect
for Miriam, and that face would
be perfect for Jezebel."
Boyce said her 20 works can


be viewed from three perspec-
tives: Artistic content, design,
texture, color and technique;
Biblical content; and women's
issues that both the subject
women and modern women
still struggle with.
Boyce holds both bachelor's
and master's degree in art edu-
cation from the University of
Wisconsin. Locally, she's won
first place and "best" awards at
the 32nd and 33rd annual Lake
Placid Arts & Crafts Country
Fairs, first place awards from
the 1999 SFCC art show, and
first and People Choice Award
from the 2001 Caladium
Festival show.
She is a member of the Lake
Placid Caladium Arts
Cooperative, the Lake Placid
and Highlands art leagues and
the Florida Watercolor Society.

Nostalgia served up at Caddyshack Bar & Grill


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING
ollectively George Larabinis,
Gabriel Mendoza and Basil Makris
have served food in Highlands
County for more than 30 years. Now they
have teamed up and opened the
Caddyshack Bar & Grill at Sebring
Municipal Golf Course.
Karabinis and Mendoza were formerly
partners of Savannah's restaurant in
Sebring and Makris ran Zeno's restaurant
in Sebring.
"This is a new concept. There are sculp-
tures throughout, like the Blues Brothers,
Charlie Chaplin, etc. It's a family-oriented
atmosphere that's fun and festive. The
decor sets it apart," Makris said.
There's seafood like mahi mahi, scrod,


salmon, oysters, catfish, crab cakes and
shrimp scampi. Unique appetizers are
plantain nachos as well as char-grilled
octopus legs. Five to six different varieties
of steaks are offered, like the 16 ounce
black angus. A rack of lamb or lamb chops
are available as well as liver and onions,
chicken breast or smothered sirloin. There
are offerings of pasta, vegetarian dishes
and a nice variety of salads such as
Caesar's, Greek and a spring mix salad
featuring raspberries, walnuts, sesame nuts
with raspberry vinaigrette.
Their sandwiches feature foccacio bread
filled with black angus, chicken or fish.
The pistachio ice cream cake dessert is
mouthwatering. A full-service liquor bar
also serves French and California wines.
In addition they offer catering.
"We can make it a special occasion for


any party. At the restaurant we can accom-
modate whatever size group, whether 10
people or 130," Makris said.
In addition to the family-oriented sec-
tion, the back portion of the restaurant is a
haven for golfers after their game. It backs
up to the Sebring Municipal Golf Course.
Caddyshack Bar & Grill also operates a
golf cart which serves sandwiches, drinks
and snacks on the course.
"People mistakenly think we're a pri-
vate restaurant because it is on the golf
course, but we are open to the public, and
we welcome everyone to our new restau-
rant," Makris said.
Caddyshack Bar & Grill (across from
Harder Hall) is at 3122 Golfview Road in
Sebring. Hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
daily. Call 471-0505 for more details.
Reservations are not required.

Mid Florida Center joins response to

AIDS crisis among African Americans


BARTOW Project
Prevention Works a Program of
The Mid Florida Center with
offices in Highlands, Hardee
and Polk counties will respond
Wednesday, Feb. 7, to the
impact of HIV and AIDS in the
city's African American com-
munities in the seventh annual
observance of National Black
HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.
An awareness luncheon will
be held to encourage citizens to
get educated, tested, treated and
involved with HIV/AIDS as it
continues to devastate black
communities.
"Seventy-two African
Americans are infected with
HIV every day," said Myra
Bryant, a prevention case man-
ager with Project Prevention
Works who is one of the coordi-
nators for the events. "African
Americans make up approxi-
mately 13 percent of the popu-
lation of the United States, yet
almost half of the total AIDS
cases reported in this country
are among members of the
black community. In 2006,
HIV/AIDS is one of the top 10
leading causes of death for
African Americans. In Polk
County, over 50 percent of peo-
ple diagnosed with HIV/AIDS


are black."
Winter Haven is one of more
than 300 cities across the
United States that will host pro-
grams on Feb. 7 to call attention
to the problem and seek solu-
tions to halt the epidemic.
Initiatives planned in recogni-
tion of National Black
HIV/AIDS Awareness Day in
Winter Haven include:
Project Prevention Works
2nd Annual Awareness
Luncheon will be hosted by the:
Social Action Auxiliary of
Hurst Chapel AME Church

Both events are free and open
to the public. Testing will be
offered at both events. Respond
if attending to Myra Bryant at

Preventing sarcopenia is serious
business. It afflicts millions of aging t I
adults who lose muscle mass and .
strength and robs them of basic tasks of
daily living.
Since this is an age-related loss,
even the heightening of suffering dev-
astating injuries and death from sudden N
falls and other accidents is scary. We N
must take heed of what can face us as WEL
we age and learn to save our very pre-
cious lives. JOU
The good news is that all health con-
scious adults can take immediate steps Ray
to start a program that will greatly
lessen the risk of sarcopenia. It appears
after the age of 40 and accelerates
around 75 if a person is inactive in daily living. In
addition, suboptimal hormone levels, minimal
protein intake, other nutritional imbalances, lack
of healthy exercise, oxidative stress and inflam-
mation, causes a severe decline in your health.
The loss of muscle mass can create in frail eld-
erly people poorer outcomes after surgery or trau-
matic accidents. Eating high fibers, lots of
healthy vegetables, complex carbs, will enhance
your immune capacity. Also taking a buffering
agent, potassium bicarbonate to the diet of post-

menopausal women prevents the wast-
ing of a "normal diet." This helps the
loss of muscle mass.
Several nutrients, including vitamin
D and whey protein have shown great
promise in combating sarcopenia.
Include as well omega-3 fatty acids,
carnitine, (500 milligrams two times
daily) and the amino acid glutamine
which can help to build healthy muscle
MIAL mass.
NESS Weight training is essential as well
as daily exercise which will enhance
NEY fitness, mobility and improve bone
-health.
Fisch Some more good news in the area of
- pain management will be introduced in
the next column. Most of us as we age
have constant pain, some minimal, but
many have extreme pain that no matter what pill
or injection is medically given, it does not seem
to help. There is now welcome help.

Life Line offers health and wellness screenings


SEBRING Residents liv-
ing in and around the Sebring
community can be screened to
reduce their risk of having a
stroke.
Life Line Screening will be
at the Bible Fellowship Church
Thursday, Feb. 1. The site is at
3750 Hammock Road.
Appointments will begin at 9
a.m.
A stroke, also known as a
"brain attack," is ranked as the
third leading killer in the world
and the second among women.
Through preventive screenings,
the risk of having a stroke can
be greatly reduced.
Screenings are fast, painless
and low cost. They involve the
use of ultrasound technology
and scan for potential health
problems related to: blocked


arteries which can lead to a
stroke, aortic aneurysms which
can lead to a ruptured aorta and
hardening of the arteries in the
legs, which are a strong predic-
tor of heart disease. Also
offered for men and women, is
a bone density screening to
assess their risk for osteoporo-
sis.
All four screenings take less
than an hour to complete. A
complete vascular screening
package, including the
stroke/carotid artery, abdominal,
aortic aneurysm and ankle


brachial index (hardening of the
arteries) screenings is $109.
Sign-up for a complete vascular
package; include the osteoporo-
sis screening and pay $129.
Life Line Screening was
established in 1993 and has
since become the nation's lead-
ing provider of vascular screen-
ings. The non-invasive, inex-
pensive and painless, ultra-
sound tests help people identify
their risk for stroke, vascular
diseases or osteoporosis early
enough for their physician to
begin preventive procedures

Give it a chance
There are children in Avon Park who need a safe and
structured place to go after school, and the Boys & Girls
Club in Avon Park wants to be that place.
It actually was the place until late last May when the
club had to close its doors due to a lack of funds. Today,
the club already has a deficit of $60,000 because of bro-
ken promises made by a former club executive director
claiming no city money at all would be needed for oper-
ating expenses. But, a new club is hoping to open.
The start-up program used space at the Avon Park
Housing Authority. It was supposed to be a temporary
site for a few weeks, but the club operated from the facil-
ity for years. The space was too small then and is still too
small for the program.
Forrest Hilton, president of the board for the Boys &
Girls Club of Highlands County, hopes to open a new
club in a permanent and larger setting perhaps using
part of the Hopewell School for the Arts' campus, or a
local church's new outreach facility.
At a bare minimum, Walt Hall told city council during
a special meeting last week, it takes about $100,000
annually to operate a club. That is with no frills, working
with about 80 children.
Hall is executive director of the Boys & Girls Club
organization serving eastern Polk County. He is in
Highlands County as a volunteer, to help the local clubs
get back on track.
Emotions during the meeting sometimes ran high. No
one disputed the success of the Boys & Girls organiza-
tion. Everyone there supported the idea of a club to help
children, especially for those children most at risk.
Those who voiced concern did so questioning how the
club should be funded. Some insisted the club should pay
for itself, some said the city should guarantee the fund-
ing. Most fell somewhere in between the two.
Hall said typically a club is supported by a combina-
tion of grants and raised money. The problem, however,
comes in the fact that the club is structured to help raise
children, not money. Raising money is the job of the
board of directors, but there is not a functioning board of
directors for the Boys & Girls Club in Highlands County.
An ideal board would be made up of between 12 to 20
people, each able to donate roughly 200 hours a year. The
bulk of that time would be spent raising funds. Currently,
there are only six people on the Avon Park board.
Other than donations, Hall explained that a club gets
- the bulk of its funding from four sources: Federal gov-
ernment provides money through the state, and the coun-
ty and the Department of Juvenile Justice give money
directly and municipalities usually add a contribution.
The city of Sebring contributes $50,000 a year toward its
club, and cities in Polk County also help their clubs.
Hall hoped that Avon Park would follow suit, provid-
ing a portion of daily operating costs.
But that's where the biggest problem lies. Broken
promises in the past and concern over a lack of adequate ,
funding resources, led the council to a cautious position.
It doesn't help that there is the unsettled question of
where a club would be housed.
Council is clearly supportive of a new club in theory.
What it is asking is not unreasonable. The city wants a
precise list of needs and a budge, which it has been prom-
ised.
That's where the matter rests for the moment.
Those people who serve on the club's board are clear-
ly dedicated to the betterment of the city's youth. If they
weren't, they would have abandoned the sinking ship
long ago. Instead, they are coming back to the city with
a plea for help that is more honest than before.
The city should listen, study the documentation that
the club has promised and take its plea under strong con-
sideration. Give the new club and its leaders a chance.


Prepare teens
It is obvious that a large per-
centage of our young men and
women lack guidance when it
comes to the appropriate attire
for job interviews.
While many jobs don't
require suits, it's important that
the wardrobe of job seekers
include: for guys a pair of
khakis, along with an ironed
white or blue shirt. Depending
on the job, a solid colored tie in
navy black or red, is optional,
No sneakers please. Wear a
clean pair of black shoes. The
socks must match ydur pants,
and a belt should match the
shoes.
A teenage girl's wardrobe
should include navy or black
slacks; a crisp white, pink or
light blue blouse. Stockings are
optional and should either be
neutral in color or should match
the shoes.
Critics may say that the teens
preparing to enter the job mar-
ket can't afford these items.
Well, the average teen owns
more than two pairs of sneak-
ers. Anyone can own a pair of
black or brown shoes.:
The big no's. No jeans, belly
button exposed navel. No visi-
ble tattoos. No visible, multiple
body piercings.
On the day of the interview,
remember punctuality is impor-


for interview














tant. Arrive at least 15 minutes
before the scheduled time. Use
this time to observe and learn
more about the company to
which you are seeking employ-
ment.
Come prepared to ask and be
asked multiple questions. When
the interviewer approaches you,
extend your right hand while
greeting her/him with a firm
grip while staring the person in
the eye, say: "Thank you for
taking time to interview me."
Following the interview, say.
"Thank you for allowing me to
learn more about the company,
it was quite informative."
Follow up with a thank you
note/card. You can never say
enough thanks.

Knowing yourself will help in everyday life


Well, it most certainly is a
different subject to approach.
We have all heard about various
strategies and ways to get to
know someone else. There have
even been icebreaker games
designed for such things. Yet,
these games often do not allow
us to get to know one person ...
and that person is ourselves.
At times, it might seem as if
you are running through your
routinely grind. If you are any-
thing like me, you want to make
sure that you check off your
entire "to-do" list for that day.
Yet, in this hustle and bustle of
daily life, you may not even
take the time to get to know
what you like and why you
think the way that you do.
What originally caught my
attention on this subject was a
simple fact of my life. If you


MURPHY'S LAW

Lindsey Murphy

have ever spent any amount of
time with me, you may know
that I have an inability to sing.
It is certainly not because I do
not try. All too often I sing with
all of my might. But, time and
time again it hurts the ears of
those surrounding me.
Although things could drasti-


cally change in my life, I have a
feeling that I will never be on a
stage in front of people singing.,
Do not get me wrong; I
absolutely believe that you
should work on your weakness-
es. However, it should never
take away what your strengths
in life truly are. These are the
areas in which you will feel
most comfortable working in
and serving other people. Yet,
you also need to know where
your weaknesses lie.
It is OK to be honest with
yourself and to say that you are
not capable of being all things
to all people. If you are able to
get over that hump that is hold-
ing you back from being all that
you possibly could be, who
knows what you are capable of
doing.


Once you sit down and truly
evaluate what makes you tick,
you are able to figure out what
areas in your life you enjoy. If
you know that walking helps to
distress you, perhaps you would
schedule it into your day to do
such a thing. Or, if you know
that a certain kind of music
brightens your day, maybe you
would wake up to it in the
mornings.
After all, by taking the time
to figure out who you really are,
you are able to not only know
others better, but know how to
serve them as well.

Park resident, currently attend-
ing college. She can be contact-

Huge servings

at Roadhouse
Editor:
Heads up, you diners and
lovers of good food. There is a
new place in town. Centrally
located, prices affordable, rea-
sonable ... service excellent.
I was returning from the post
office behind the Lakeshore
Mall and I noticed the banner
announcing the grand opening
of the "Road House Grill"
Tuesday, Jan. 16, at 11 a.m. and
I could see the parking lot was
filling up, so I decided to stop
in and check it out.
I ordered the "chicken BLT
salad" and a diet Coke. Sodas
are served in mason jars and
the salad was heaped way up to
there in the bowl. Easily two
people (ladies) could have had
more than their fill.
Did I mention the warm
rolls? The service, as I said,
was great. Oh and did I men-
tion the grilled chicken fingers
were all across the top of the
salad and so much of it. Check
it out you'll like it, I guaran-
tee it.

These three widow ladies

each are handling the loss of

Mooch has her pups in her own way


Despite hoping for a deal
with Mooch, the Amazing
Multi-Colored Canine, when it
came close to time for her to
have her puppies I broke down
and locked her up.
Jill and I blocked off the end
of the porch so that she couldn't
get out, and then lined a dog-
house with sheets and put out
food and water. She seemed OK
with the arrangement until I
came home that night and found
her gone. As it turns out, despite
dragging around a belly the size
of a five-gallon bucket she
could still jump like a deer.
The next morning I locked
her up again. She stayed about
six hours and then disappeared.
It was cold out, and I worried.
Those puppies would be born
wet and if they were out in the
open they could get sick and
die.
I just couldn't understand
why she didn't accept the nice
little den I'd made for her. I
racked my brain trying to figure
out why she didn't trust me
enough to know that I was try-
ing to do the right thing for her.
I had never done anything to
betray her, I thought.
And then a memory came to
me,'and I got the uneasy feeling
that maybe she didn't trust me


' ^



DIRT ROAD DIARIES
C.J. Mouser

and maybe she had a good rea-
son.
Months ago Mooch demon-
strated a natural herding ability.
I gave some thought to training
her to do it properly but didn't
have the time. That didn't stop
Mooch from herding loose pigs
back and forth across the pas-
ture under her own direction.
She had no idea why she was
doing it, but she did it anyway.
She was obsessed; if pigs were
over here, she wanted them
over there. The pigs tolerated
her, but God help the ones that
didn't follow her direction.
One day a half-grown pig
had the audacity to wander
down the road toward the
neighbor's house, Mooch was
fit to be tied. She cornered the


pig and grabbed it by the ear.
Her behavior sparked a riot.
The other dogs, working on her
cue, also grabbed the pig and it
was total chaos. The pig was
screaming and bleeding, and
the dogs were panting and it
seemed, out for blood.
I punished Mooch by tossing
her in a trailer with a grown
sow. There were a few minutes
of more chaos and then the sow
and dog settled down and
learned to live together. I kept
Mooch in there for days before
letting her out and it seemed
that she got the message. I
never saw her attack another
pig again.
With this new worry on my
shoulders I pretty well gave up
on being able to keep Mooch
penned up. I forgot about her. I
heard from other members of
the family that she was coming
home to eat and then disappear-
ing again. I never laid eyes on
her and assumed that she had
had her puppies and I would see
them when she was good and
ready to let me see them.
The morning of New Year's
Eve I woke up late. As is my
habit, I went from one end of
the house to the other searching
for my people; Jill was on the
couch, Jenny was in her room,


and Jake was outside with his
dad working on a stock trailer. I
poked my head out the door to
let them know that I was up,
and was just getting ready to go
back outside when Fred stopped
me.
"We have puppies, you
know," he said, peeking over
the wall of the trailer.
"What? Where?!"
"On the back porch in the
doghouse."
"You're kidding!" I got way
more emotional than I should
have and practically broke my
neck getting to the back porch.
Sure enough, there was
Mooch stretched out in the dog-
house with seven tiny puppies
snuggled up against her now
flat belly. Laugh if you want,
but I almost cried.
They're out there now, those
Amazing Multi-Colored
Puppies, waiting for names and
new families when they get big
enough, and it's safe to say that
Mooch and me ... we're OK.

All physicians at the Cancer Care Center of Sebring are formally
trained in radiation oncology and are Board certified. Additionally,
each physician has provided personal cancer care service to the
Highlands County community for more than 20 years. They keep
their skills up-to-date by training on new treatment methods and par-
ticipating in research studies with national institutions. The doctors
are available to patients and referring physicians seven days a week.
The Cancer Care Center of Sebring mission is to provide superior
oncologic care.




Dear Patient,
We are pleased to see you. Your initial visit will serve as a conference
for us to discuss and determine which treatment methods are suitable
for your situation and for your to choose among your treatment
options. You undoubtedly will have many questions. Do not be afraid
to ask them and make sure they are answered to your satisfaction.
As your physicians, we strive to serve your health with the best of
our medical skills. We all share a common view on the doctor's role
in cancer care. We honor the precept, "Behind the illness there is the
human being," and strongly feel that medical therapy for all its
sophistication must always respect the patient's comfort and dignity.
Please feel free to share your feelings with any member of our team.
We look forward to working with you to fight your disease.

Hibiscus Garden Club prepares


for election of officers, plant sale

helps Jennifer Frey trace her family history.

Genealogy workshop to be presented


AVON PARK The Hibiscus Garden Club of
Avon Park met Jan. 12 in the home of Nancy
Heiring.
The meeting was called to order by club presi-
dent Nina Seibold who welcomed members and
led the Pledge of Allegiance. Club chaplain
Shirley Foster gave a reading "Daffodil
Principle," a trip to a garden. Finance chairman
Teri Semper presented the club financial report,
which was accepted.
Christmas decoration chairman, Heiring,
reported that she plans to add more decorative
figures to the Main Street Mall for the coming
season. The city crew has been very helpful in
assisting with the work of the club. The city has
provided new facilities for members to store and
work refinishing existing displays and develop-
ing new ones.
The club will sponsor two students to attend
Camp Wekiva this summer, operated by the
Florida Federation of Garden Clubs.
Seibold appointed the nominating committee
charged with developing a slate of club officers
for the coming year. The slate will be presented at


the Thursday, Feb. 8, meeting.
Members are preparing for the annual plant
sale and cutting giveaway on Saturday, Feb. 24,
at the Bandstand in downtown Avon Park. Hours
are from 8 a.m. to noon.
In the absence of a scheduled speaker, Heiring
presented an interesting highlight of honey bees.
Do you know:
a) Bees are responsible for pollinating more
than 30 percent of everyone's food?
b) Byproducts are wax, royal jelly used in
beauty products and medicines in addition to
table honey?
c) Raw honey is taken by humans to build up
resistance to allergies?
The bees are endangered by pesticides, mites
and an occasional hungry bear. A new serious
threat is the invasion of the aggressive African
bee.
Alaska is experimenting with winterizing bees.
The hives must be kept at 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
The February meeting will be hosted by Mary
Lou Lundblade and Dorothy Meyer.


SEBRING Patriots
Chapter Daughters of the
American- Revolution invites
the public to a genealogical
workshop conducted by Linda
Soloski, DAR State Lineage
Research chairman, from 10

TOPS FL 487
SEBRING The Jan. 17
meeting of the Wednesday
morning Take Off Pounds
Sensibly FL 487 was called to
order after the chair exercises
with the giving of the pledges
by 25 TOPS and five Keep Off
Pounds Sensibly members.
Members welcomed new
member Sharon Geahlen and
visiting New York state TOPS
member Betty Crowell.
According to roll call, the
chapter had a zero net loss or
gain for the week. There was a


SEBRING After a fun
experience at the Big Brothers
Big Sisters Snow Fest Saturday
at Lakeshore Mall, Little
Brother Jr. Bautista got his first
plane ride over Highlands
County Sunday.
The Sebring Optimist Club
reports that through the gra-
cious assistance from George
Pope, manager of Avon Park
Airport and Otis Johnson, pilot,
Bautista had a bird's-eye view
of Highlands County. He even
saw Lakeshore Mall, where the
Snow Fest took place. This is
just one of the hundreds of
opportunities that Pope and
Johnson provide young people
to learn about flying (the Eagles
come to mind).
The Boys & Girls Club
Board of Directors met with the
Avon Park City Council in its


TOPS 99 learns
about trans fats
SEBRING Tuesday's
meeting opened with the Take
Off Pounds Sensibly FL 99
pledge and appropriate songs.
A new member was wel-
comed, Athena Owens and Pat
Woods rejoined. Linda Luke
and Linda Quails tied for the
week's best looser. They both
chose from the gift basket.
Attendance awards gift was
opened by Lillian Byers. A long
time member Doris Mc
Closkey registered at 9 pounds
less than last year.
The evening program, pre-
sented by Karen Crawford,
included valuable information
on "Trans Fats." She explained
why everyone should be read-
ing the labels on all packages
of food products. Everyone
must understand the implica-
tions of products having high
sodium, trans fats and other
items that cause them to have
high blood pressure, and other
devastating health problems.
TOPS meetings are from 6-7
p.m. every Tuesday at the
Atonement Lutheran Church,
1744 SE Lakeview Drive.
Visitors are welcome to attend
a meeting at no cost or obliga-
tion. Belonging to a TOPS
group not only helps with
weight loss but also promotes a
healthy lifestyle.


Anyone interested in tracing
their family history is invited to
attend. Participants will learn
how to trace their family histo-
ry, interesting hints on finding
hard to locate ancestors.
Computer will be available and
volunteers will help. Bring a
family chart and problem lines
for assistance.


Reservations are $12 (lunch
included). Make check to:
Patriots Chapter, DAR and mail

TOPS FL 632 expects the best


SEBRING The Monday,,
Jan. 15, meeting of Take Off
Pounds Sensibly FL 632 was
called to order by leader, Jean
Ottoway with 37 members
present.
A salute to the flag and Keep
Off Pounds Sensibly and TOPS
pledges were said by all.
Donna Raaf led the members
in two rousing songs.
Roll was called by weight
recorder Karen Goodwin who
announced some good weight
losses this week and Sue
Otteson was the best loser for
the week.
Three new members joined
this past week. They were,
Carolyn Roberts, Norma Jean
Fuller and Joyce Grosskoph.
Members also want to welcome
back Barbara Hines, who has
been absent for a while. The
group hopes these new mem-
bers come back each week and
become active members in
TOPS. It's all about the support
members give and get from
each other. It's a hard road to
travel alone and with the sup-
port of all members, it makes it


quest to find a permanent site
for the Avon Park center. The
current site facility is due to be
torn down in nine months.
Several options were explored;
one west of U.S. 27 was noted,
but that would entail the issue
of transportation
The Boys & Girls Club pro-
vides an invaluable service for
the youth, just as Big Brothers
Big Sisters and Highlands
County Community Coalition
on Substance Abuse. The cost
of these services is high, but not
nearly as costly as the criminal
justice system after the fact.
The local leaders are pursu-
ing remedies for two such
issues: truancy and bullying on
school campuses. They need
support from the entire commu-
nity. The three organizations
noted above provide whole-
some activities in developing
future citizens and serve as pre-
ventive measures to negative
lifestyles.

a little easier.
The no-no's for the week are
cookies, potato chips and fried
foods, so try to avoid eating any
of these.
Ottoway read a letter from
the area coordinator, Nancy
Hughes about some changes
going on. Hughes was very
happy with the club's year end
resume and Ottoway gave
Goodwin and Jean Pace a little
gift for having a 100 percent
resume. This is a big job and
with the help of Ottoway, they
passed it with flying colors.
The TOPS theme this year is
"Make Your Own Music."
Mary Anderson won the trav-
el gift for week one. Nancy


Lowe unwrapped a layer off the
mystery gift and it remains a
mystery and Nancy McConkey
won the raffle.
The short version of the tip of
the week is "expect the best and
you will get it."
Due to the long meeting,
Raaf didn't do a program, but
did get members all laughing
and that's what it's all about.
Meeting was adjourned with
hand in hand.

The population in Highlands and Hardee Counties is
growing older and living longer. Unfortunately, this devel-
opment is often accompanied by an increase in chronic ill-
nesses, disabilities and poor health. Our health care sys-
tem is often ill equipped to respond adequately to the
needs of our rural elderly population. We are told that
about 24% of patients in nursing homes in Florida really
do not need to be there. They are admitted largely because
of the lack of community based support services that
Should enable them to remain living independently and in
the comfort of their own home.
Dependable Care Services. Inc. was founded by local,
professional nurses, who recognized this need and decid-
ed that they wanted to do something about it. Their goal is
Sto ensure a better quality of life for disabled or convalesc-
Sing individuals of any age as well as elderly clients and
families by providing dependable and affordable support
Services in the home.


These services may include
assistance with hygiene,
errands, shopping, picking
up medications, light
housekeeping, transporta-
tion to medical appoint-
ments, respite for family
caregivers and other similar
services.
After a loved one has been
discharged from the hospi-
tal after suffering a stroke,
his or her spouse may find it difficult to manage the care need-
ed by themselves, or may not have transportation or be able to
drive to the pharmacy to pick up medications. Some family
caregivers may have appointments away from home and may
be reluctant to have a loved one unsupervised or they may
need a break from caregiver duties.

Dependable Care Services, Inc. is prepared to provide
support and assistance to to meet these needs. You'll find the
staff to be exceptionally well trained, caring and compassion-
ate. A thorough background check is conducted on every staff
member as required by the State of Florida, and Dependable
Care Services, Inc is licensed by the Agency for Health Care-
Administration.

spoke of their experiences with
the Last Chance Ranch. Oliver,
18, is from Fort Myers and
Scamarone, 18, is from Fort
Lauderdale.
Davis and Brown explained
about FEI's goals, expectations
and standards demanded by FEI
for each resident; then followed
up with a video set to timely
music that clearly demonstrated
the objectives of FEI. Foremost,
residents are expected to com-
plete and receive their GED.
Varying programs through the
vocation department introduce
residents to animal husbandry,
gardening, building and con-
struction, culinary arts and
more. Residents participate in
any and all programs if possi-
ble. In addition to learning dif-
ferent skills and a trade that will
enable them to obtain employ-
ment after they leave FEI.
These young men are active in
team sports and local Olympic
games.
It is easy to understand how
FEI can boast of such a high
success rate. Oliver and
Scamarone were asked many
questions from the audience
and although nervous, each
answered distinctively and pos-
itively noting their gratitude
and feelings of accomplishment
for their achievements. Oliver
stated he has learned he is inter-
ested in cooking and would like


to continue his education in the
culinary arts. He has "been in
the program for eight and a half
months ... and about to go
home. Since I've been here I
have learned new social skills
and I have learned to respect
authority ... I learned it's not
about what you did in the past,
but what you are going to do in
the future. I plan to get my GED
and go out for a trade. If it was-
n't for FEI, I don't know where
I would be."
Scamarone stated similar
sentiments. "I've been in this
program for one and a half
months and I'm learning
respect, leadership and integrity
... I'd like to say thanks to FEI
and will recommend it to any-
body who will like to be some-
thing in life." Scamarone also
acknowledged that at FEI, he
was introduced for the first time
in his life to farm animals and
surprisingly finds this experi-
ence worthwhile. His goal is to
go to college, study animal hus-
bandry and perhaps agriculture.
Aside from discovering and
learning new skills, it was obvi-
ous Scamarone is equally as
proud of the fact that through
FEI, he is now communicating
with his family and relation-
ships with his family are
improving.
While emphasizing family
values to be a top priority and
the importance for each resident
to set, then attain certain goals,
the directors and the two resi-
dents shook hands with the
members, who approvingly
shared glances and wished them
all continued success.

Kids in the



Kitchen


It's great to have little helpers in the kitchen.
But as your children learn the basics of cooking,
be sure to follow these kitchen safety rules:

Turn pot handles toward the back of the
stove to prevent spills.


Protect little hands with oven mitts.


Use large bowls to minimize mixing
spills.


Treat mild kitchen bums with cold water
or ice, but never butter.

District 8-3A SoccerTournament


Dragons fall in 2nd OT


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
Sports Writer
LAKE PLACID The pain
in their faces told the stories.
One of the frustration of playoff
defeat and another of a resound-
ing effort.
The Green Dragons of Lake
Placid fell 2-1 Tuesday night in
District 8-3A tournament action
to visiting Frostproof, but that
isn't as basic as it seems.
During the regular season,
the Bulldogs (10-5-3) had,
topped the Green Dragons (3-
12) twice 3-1 and 4-1 but
head coach Joshua Virkler did-
n't see such a great difference.
"In each of those games, we
gave up one soft goal," he said.
"They're probably a team that's
one goal better than us, but this
is the playoffs, so anything can
happen."
And anything almost did, as


Lake Placid surprisingly got on
the board first.
Senior captain Nathan
Thompson's shot attempt on
goal during the sixth minute
was blocked, but the carom was
knocked in off the left foot of
his younger brother Kyle to put

the Dragons up,
1-0.
Through a
heightened
defensive effort
and numerous
fine stops from
goalkeeper David


Moore, the score stayed that
way through the first half.
The promise of a postseason
upset was growing with each
passing minute.
In the 51st minute, however,
a bending boot from 20 yards
out found the upper left corner
of the goal to make it 1-1.


But rather than hang their
heads or use this as an excuse,
the Dragons fought on, forcing
one overtime and then another.
And then with just over three
minutes left in the second over-
time, a drive toward the goal by
Frostproof netted the winning
score, ending the Green
Dragons' season and causing
the pained expressions.
"This was by far the best
game we've had this season,"
Virkler said. "It may be the best
one I've seen us play in three
years.
"We didn't produce much
during the season, but they
came out here and they weren't
intimidated," he said. "The
guys stayed right with them,
and we told them to just keep
doing what they were doing.
It's always tough to lose, but
there's no better way to go out."

Avelar and Josh Cameron
scored two goals each for
the winners.

25 Years Ago
Jan. 22, 1982: The
Sebring boys basketball
team made it six straight
wins with a 69-43 victory
over Lake Placid. Every
Blue Streak player cracked
the scoring column, led by
Ross Lewis' 15 points,
while Frank Hollinger and
Troy Mathis each added
11. This latest win on their
streak moved Sebring's
season record to 12-4.

Teams take advantage of track time at Raceway


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The third annual American Le Mans
Series Winter Test wraps up today.
Members of the media met with team representa-
tives as the ALMS season heads toward their opening
race here at Sebring. Even a few fans turned out to
watch the cars and drivers get in some laps around the
circuit in anticipation of the start of the 2007 season.
Those in attendance got a sample pack of.various
track conditions, with weather ranging from Tuesday's
overcast skies with cool breezes to the wet and warm
Monday afternoon with enough of a midday shower to
sufficiently slick down the Sebring International
Raceway's 3.72 mile circuit.
It's the preseason for the American Le Mans Series
season, which will commence in March with the
Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring.
Stealing the show in an early Tuesday evening run
at the track was Danica Patrick. The chestnut-haired


beauty took a couple dozen laps in the Andretti Green
Courage LC 75, shaving about a half-second a lap as
she got used to the car and the layout.
Patrick, the 2005 Indy Racing League Rookie of the
year, was being sought for the third seat to pilot the car
at this year's 12 Hours with fellow IRL veterans Brian
Herta and Dario Franchitti.
"The car was really fun, it suits my style," said the
24-year-old IRL driver as she climbed out of the cock-
pit.
Although Patrick has never raced in the 12 Hours,
she has run the Sebring short course during testing for
Rahal/Letterman.
"One of the good things at Sebring is there are a lot
of places to pass. I did about 20 laps, passing on the
inside, passing on the outside. I'm excited," she said.
The Andretti/Green LMP2 was one of a number of
Acura-powered machines taking advantage of the

"We got a score early in the

But the Blue Streaks would

momentary, lapse to move on

STREAKS
Continued from 1D
Pirates, but with the Pirates
handing it to Sebring, 4-0, on
their home turf.
"We knew this was a very
good team, and they really took
us when we played them (at
Braden River)," Brown said.
"But we knew we could play
with them."
During the first half, that
seemed to be the case, as both
teams battled each other and
a slight drizzle to a scoreless
tie.
But shortly before halftime,
perhaps as a portent of things to
come, that slight drizzle turned
into a downpour.
With the skies opening up,
so did the scoring, and sopho-
more Austin Brady got the Blue
Streaks on the board in the 43rd
minute.
The Pirates struck right
back, however, with Javier
Yalta converting on a crossing
pass to even things up.
As the quick scoring flurry
slowed, the rain did not, as the
teams struggled to get good
footing, both on the field and
on the ball.
A few opportunities were
had, but the conditions didn't
allow for solid connections or
accurate shots.
"I thought I was back in
Wales there for a while,"
Brown said of his often soggy
homeland.
The skies soon eased back to
the drizzle, and Streak junior
Daniel Grimaldo found the
right footing to rip one past the
Pirate keeper for a 2-1 advan-
tage in the 73rd minute.
And over the final minutes,
there was no lapse and no
falling asleep as Sebring held
on for the win.
"The kids really played their
hearts out tonight and that's all
you can ask for," Brown said.
"It was a great win, but we'll
have to do it again Wednesday
against a very talented team."
That team will be the Hardee
Wildcats in semifinal action at
8 p.m. tonight.

DEVILS
Continued from 1D
evident of that character.
The continued problem of a lack of offense put
Avon Park in trouble early, as DeSoto struck
early and often with a goal from freshman Noel
Segura and three from senior Beto Vargas for a 4-
0 lead in the 18th minute.
Having only scored five goals on the season,
coming back from that deficit looked unlikely for
the Devils, and the rapidity of goals scored made
it seem like that first mercy rule defeat of the sea-
son would be well on its way.
But instead of hanging their heads and accept-
ing defeat, the Avon Park boys kept at it, contin-
ued to play hard and held the dangerous 'Dogs
scoreless the rest of the opening half.
That stalwart defensive effort continued in the
second half as junior goalie Danny Wells and the
Red Devil defenders really picked it up.
"Danny had a tough time early in the game, but
he really did a great job in the second half," Dent
said. "The whole team played a great second half
and we even had two really good opportunities to
score."
But the goals didn't come and DeSoto would
add two more goals from Vargas in the waning
minutes of the game for the final margin.
"We'll be losing three seniors from this team,
but I can't give enough credit to them," Dent
said.
"To go through a season like we've had, and
for them to stick with it in their final year, to not
quit, really shows the kind of people they are.

Avon Park's Alfonso Marquez (0) tries to screen a
DeSoto player from the ball Monday night in
Palmetto.
"The fact that they played hard all game, every
game, it really helped show our younger players
how it's done," he continued. "With the kind of
effort we've had this year, if we'd just had some
offense, we would have won a few games."
The wins may not have come, but a strong
sense of accomplishment surely should.

TESTING
Continued from 1D
Winter Test. Highcroft Racing,
which has signed champions
David Brabham and Sefan
Johansson to drive their new
Courage LC 75-Acura LMP2,
was also on hand
Also testing as they prepare
to defend their LMP2 champi-
onship at Sebring was the Lola
B05/40-AER of Intersport rac-
'ing. Running the car at this
week's test were the father-son
team of Jon and Clint Field,
with Richard Berry filling the
third seat in the car.
Last year, they put on a spec-
tacular show in the 12 Hours,
finishing first in class and sec-
ond overall.
Another Lola B05/40 was
trying out Sebring's historic cir-
cuit, this one fielded by the new
Lowe's/Fernandez Racing
effort. But unlike Intersport,
this Lola will be powered by
Acura. Owner/driver Adrian
Fernandez will be joined by for-
mer Chip Ganassi Racing pilot
Luis Diaz in their debut.


The LMP2 division may be
this year's most exciting class at
the 12 Hours as it appears a duel
between Porsche and Acura
could be in the offing.
Porsche is now represented
by heavyweights Penske
Motorsports and the Dyson
Racing team. Both are running
the RS Spyder introduced at
Sebring last year.
Penske set the pace on the
track both of the Winter Test's
first two days, turning in a lap
of 1 minute, 47.228 seconds on
Monday and a 1:47:219 on
Tuesday.
The bright yellow, DHL-
sponsored Spyders netted the
2006 ALMS LMP2 division
championship. They already
tested the 2007 version of the
car at Sebring once this year.
Dyson took delivery of the
first of two RS Spyders just last
week the first of Porsche's
Spyders for a customer team.
Nevertheless, they had a very
respectable first outing, chart-
ing a 1:47:652 about a half
second off Penske's pace.
Dyson's second car is not


SCOTT DRESSELINews-Sun
The Penske Porsche RS Spyders proved to be the quickest cars in the first two days of testing.


expected in the United States
until February. Andy Wallace
and Chris Dyson are running
the first car in its inaugural
shakedown.
"I'm still gobsmacked, with
the performance of this car,"
said Wallace, who has driven
sports cars from Audi to
Bentley to Lola over better than
two decades of racing.
Possibly the most populated
class this year at Sebring and
throughout the ALMS season


will be the GT2 with Panoz,
Porsche and Ferrari represent-
ed.
Drivers have agreed that the
competition will be fierce.
Although the car was late due
to a transporter break down on
its way to central Florida from
the Detroit Auto Show, the
familiar red 430 GT Ferrari
Berlinetta of Risi Competizione
promptly turned in the quickest
GT2 time Tuesday, cooking the
17-turn course in 2:01:944.


Johnny Mowlem and Jamie
Melo shared driving duties.
"The car is very good for
sure and the Michelin tires are
phenomenal," Mowlem said.
Tom Milner's Team PTG,
with support from Multimatic
and the Panoz factory is also
testing, preparing to defend the
GT2 Sebring championship.
The team has will put pair of
Panoz Esperante GTLMs on the
track this year.
Former 12 Hour winner Bill


Auberlen will drive with PTG
regular Joey Hand. Reportedly,
2006 LeMans GT2 winner Tom
Kimber-Smith will join the
lineup for Sebring and possibly
continue in a second entry for
the balance of the season.
The Lone LMP1 car on the
track came in the form of the
Autocon Motorsports group.
The Lola/EX257, now beaming
the orange and gray
JeanRichard livery, is the same
one fielded in the class at
Sebring by Dyson Racing last
year. The team took it to a cou-
ple of podium finishes in 2006.
In addition to the ALMS rac-
ers, competitors from the
Champ Car World Series as
well as IMSA Lite racers -
which are making their debut as
a support series this year -
have been testing at the track as
well. However, they have been
using the short course around
the Green Park.
The event wraps up today.
The gates will be open from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. and admission is
$10.
