Mixed



reaction to



estate


proposal
By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING Historic Preservation
Commission Chairwoman Catherine
Cornelius showed her personal commit-
ment to the Pearce Homestead by pledg-
ing $1,000 a year for five years.
However, two county commissioners
who previously showed support by sign-
ing a petition in favor of the county tak-
ing the property are now asking for more
information.
After months of discussion, county
acquisition of the homestead was finally
brought to the Highlands County Board
of County Commissioners on Tuesday.
Cornelius presented commissioners
with information on the estate and what
it could offer the county at the board's
Tuesday workshop session. No action
has yet been taken on whether the coun-
ty will accept the property and $500,000
in seed money proposed by the South
Florida Water Management District.
Reaction from the commissioners on
the presentation was mixed.
Commissioner Edgar Stokes remained
skeptical of the proposal. and he repeat-
ed concerns he had expressed at previous
Historic Preservation Commission meet-
ings about lack of public interest in the
property. When the county last owned
the Pearce property seven years ago, the
only time anyone ever visited was during
a series of annual Harvest Festivals,
Stokes said.
"When the festivals were over, nobody
came," Stokes said. After attendance
dropped off, "the county was convinced
the public wasn't interested. This is why
the county needs,to be cautious."
Stokes and fellow commissioner Don
Bates had signed the Natural Resources

with County Administrator Carl Cool,

ing the Pearce property.
Preservation Vice-Chairman Bill
Swann shared Stokes' concerns, but
responded by saying the commission is
proposing a plan that aims to bring visi-
tors to the property on a year-round
basis. He also said the buildings on the


property were in good enough shape so
restoration projects could be staggered to
when grant money is available, lessening
the budgetary impact of acquiring the
homestead.
Commissioner Barbara Stewart had
multiple questions and concerns about
the county taking over the land. Stewart

Tomoka Heights objects to utility transfer


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Tomoka
Heights residents couldn't con-
tain themselves Tuesday when
Town of Lake Placid attorney
Bert J. Harris III suggested a
tentative transfer of Placid
Utilities.
"Nooo!" was the rumbling
response from the gallery when
Harris suggested the transfer
that would revert back to the


county after a few years if it
proved unsuccessful.
Harris, interrupted by the
outburst, wasn't able to fully
explain how such a transfer
would work.
"From the reaction of the
council last night, I don't think
any of us realized that it was
going to be on the (county's)
agenda," Lake Placid council-
woman Debra Worley said
Tuesday night.


The town began exploring
the issue of taking over the
county's utilities at Tomoka
Heights and at Highway Park in
November but hadn't received
any updates, Worley said.
The town council discussed it
at its Monday night meeting
after the council's own agenda
was amended when town offi-
cials learned of the county
agenda item.
"I am not sure," Worley said,


when asked who was author-
ized to request it be placed on
the county's agenda. "That's
probably a question for Carl
(Cool, county administrator) or.
Ramon (Gavarrete, county
engineer)."
Surrounded by 27 lakes,
Lake Placid is limited in its
growth options she said.

the county would facilitate the

Commission



sets three goals

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING County commissioners established three long-
range goals. Its up to the county administrator to establish a road
map to get there.
At the urging of chairman C. Guy Maxcy and commissioner
Barbara Stewart, the board broke from tradition and worked
together to set their vision for Highlands County.
Tommy Todd, general manager and chief executive officer of
Glades Electric, facilitated the two-part session that required the
commissioners and county staff to identify their strengths, weak-
nesses, opportunities and threats.
"I appreciate the opportunity to make good better," Carl Cool,
county administrator, said at the end of Tuesday's commission
meeting,
The first goal is to develop an organizational structure and
budget process that emphasizes high-value services.
The second goal is to provide strong communications and
information to staff, the board, citizens and other elected offi-
cials.
Their final goal is to develop a strategic growth plan that pro-
tects natural resources and preserves quality of life while maxi-
mizing use of public infrastructure and ensuring efficient use of
public funds.
The goals are step one of three, Todd said, calling them a
beginning, not the end, of an on-going process.
"If you let it end here today, then everything we've done is for
naught," he said.
The next step is for Cool to buy into the process and sell it to
his subordinates, who will help him identify quantifiable "action
steps" to bring the goals to fruition.
"It's a great way to judge his performance as county adminis-
trator," Todd said, explaining that the third step is to hold Cool
accountable to the goals. ,
Cool confirmed that he believes in the process, and said he
expects his staff will also.
"This will make-it easier for Carl so hei won't have to guess
where we're coming from," commissioner Edgar Stokes said.
Todd, in response to a question from the board, said clearly-
defined goals and action steps will ease future transitions of key
personnel.
"I do not plan to be here more than three years," Cool said.
Before the goals were defined, Todd asked the commissioners
what are the most important issues the county needs to deal with
"right now."
Maxcy said he wants to cap county spending in a move simi-
lar to Hillsborough County, educate the commissioners on their
roles and responsibilities and delivery county services efficient-
ly.-
Commissioner Andrew Jackson said privatization is one of his
goals, as well as streamlining the organizational chart and the
budget process, providing clear direction to staff and receiving
more options to make decisions, and to receive the pros and cons
of those alternatives.
Stewart wants to examine what services the county should or
should not provide, determine the future "look" of the county,
educate the board and staff about growth issues and hand over to
the "next generation" a financially sound county.
Stokes said the millage rate should be scrutinized and the

When students are absent
from class, they miss out on
important days of learning.
This in turn can lead to
being kept from important
pieces that make up the larger
picture of a whole subject.
Just like working on a puz-
zle, pieces are put together for
students by teachers and their
lesson plans, but without all
the pieces the students are left
with incomplete ideas and fall
behind.
Under current legislation,
students can end up missing
almost one fourth of classes
and not be punished.
This means while other stu-
dents attend classes and see a
subject, whether math or
reading, as a whole, truant
students only see a fraction.
"It starts with irresponsible
parents at the elementary
level with the inability to see
the importance of the early
years in school," Kathy Main.
school board department
chairperson for social work-
ers, said. "The first three
grades are vital to learning
reading. These are critical
years for them to be in
school."
While the percentage (7
percent) of students in ele-
mentary school that miss
more than 21 days is smaller
than middle or high school, at
this age the attendance prob-
lem lies solely in the hands of
parents.
Establishing these patterns
early can lead to a lack of
attendance in years to come.
Children who get behind
often don't want to go to
school because they can't
compete with other students.
Going to school is a constant
reminder they are behind,
Main said.
The long ,arduous task "of
changing legislation to more
clear language on the truancy
issue is under way, but in the
meantime students are miss-
ing 45-60 days worth of


school and Main feels there is
little the school board can do
about it.
Future legislative help still
leaves no immediate solution
to the problem so programs
have popped up in the mean-
time that are trying to cut
down on truancy and promote
responsible decisions by stu-
dents without help from law-
makers in Tallahassee.
The Freshman Foundation
programs at Sebring High
School is doing very well in
many areas and has actually
helped with attendance,
Principal Toni Stivender said.
"Last year freshman atten-
dance was under 90 percent,"
Stivender said. "This year,
every day freshman atten-
dance is up to 94 percent with
less F grades and less disci-
plinary referrals."
GO GIRLS is a program
promoting healthy living,
leadership, sense of self and
community, body acceptance
and overall increased mental
and physical well-being for
girls. It also deals with issues
that lead to truancy and help
promote students making
responsible decisions.
From elementary school
the percentage of students
missing more than 21 days of
school jumps to almost 11
percent in middle school and
over 13 percent at local high
schools, or double that of ele-
mentary school students.
Issues such as self-esteem,
peer pressure, problems at
school or home and stress can
all lead to a lack of atten-
dance from older students.
Graduates of GO GIRLS
will help out in future groups
and participate in other com-
munity services.
To volunteer time, places to
meet, or if you are a teen
interested in participating in
the program call Susan
Christman at 633-9424 or
Susan Buelow at 386-6040,
ext. 277, for more informa-
tion.


Beloved airport mascot


was 'one of a kind'


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING Monday was a
sad day at Sebring Regional
Airport.
Bubba, the cat that served
as the airport's longtime mas-
cot and "Rodent Management
Engineer," was put to sleep
Monday afternoon because of
complications from diabetes
and anemia.
"The loss will be felt by so
many," Peggy Whiteleather,
airport manager and Bubba's
unofficial keeper, said.
Bubba started his life at the
airport when he wandered
onto the property in 1990.
Whiteleather isn't sure how
the cat got there, or where he
came from.
"He just appeared,"
Whiteleather said, adding that
although she though he might
have been born in the wild,
"he was always friendly from
day one."
Although the origins of the
cat himself was a mystery, the
origin of the name "Bubba"
was much simpler.
"He just looked like a
Bubba," Whiteleather said.
The orange and white cat
became a mainstay and a con-
stant presence at the airport in
his 17 years there. He moved
along with everyone else to
the airport's new terminal
facility in 2000.
Bubba gained a remarkable
level of fame .and popularity.
The airport used him for
advertisements and promo-
tions, he was given his own
business card, and he is listed
along with the rest of the air-
port's staff on its Web site.
Whiteleather said the cat
would accompany her to the
tarmac when important visi-
tors came to the airport, and
he would always "meow" as
if to say "hello." Bubba even
had the opportunity to meet

former Governor Jeb Bush
when he flew into the airport
for a campaign stop during
the 2002 elections.
A Simon Ward painting of
Bubba hangs in the airport
alongside paintings of the 12
Hours of Sebring race. The
popular feline received a mul-
titude of Christmas presents
and cards each year, and he
was even given his own
Christmas stocking.
But Whiteleather started
noticing changes in Bubba's
behavior over the past few
weeks, prompting a trip to the
veterinarian's office. The
signs were troubling.
"We knew he wasn't acting
right," Whiteleather said.
Bubba was diagnosed with
diabetes and anemia. Initially,
it was thought the ailments
would be treatable. Bubba
was fed a special kind of cat
food and given two insulin
shots daily for the diabetes.
He was also given iron and
vitamins to fight the anemia.
Unfortunately, the diabetes
and anemia proved too much
for Bubba. He will be buried
on the airport grounds,
Whiteleather said, and a small
service will be held in his
honor. An airport tenant has
already agreed to donate $300
for a memorial for Bubba.
Another tenant has offered to
construct a casket.

SEBRING Toes tapped
and hands clapped Saturday
during the Heartland Idol
Junior and Teen Idol semifi-
nals.
Five contestants advanced

p.m. Saturday during finals at
Firemen's Field.
"Do you have any more?"
emcee David Flowers joking-
ly asked the mother of Erika,
Erin and Alexis Meyers who
competed against each other.
Two of the three advanced
to the finals 16-year-old
Erika and Erin, 14.
Erika Meyers worked the
crowd and matched her atti-
tude to the song "Red High
Heels." Her sister Erin wasn't
as animated, but pleased the
judges with her rendition of
"Bring Me Down" while
wearing a white dress accent-
ed with a denim jacket and
brown cowgirl boots.

Heartland Idol Junior semifinalists Sara Liles (from left), 12; Sidney
Hitt, 11; Jacklyn Migliori, 10; Ivanna Santos, 11; and Christopher

competition at Firemen's Field in Sebring.


The Meyers weren't the
only family affair. Cousins
Jessica Varis, 14, and Lindsey
Varis, 16, went head to head.
Their gospel-inspired songs,
"Christmas Shoes" and
"God's Will" got them to the
finals.
Morgan Williams, 15, sang
Christina Aguilera's
"Reflection" wearing black
jeans with a red top over a
white T-shirt and matching
red ribbons in her hair. She
advanced to the finals.
According to Flowers, the


five teens who advanced to
the finals were the same five
who advanced in a qualifying
round.
In the junior division, the
sole male contestant,
Christopher Hawthorne, gave
a soulful rendition of "The
Closer I get to You" with an
appropriate amount of "bling"
hanging from his 11-year-old
neck.
Other finalists included

LORIDA For Lottie
Sills, the open house at the
Pearce Homestead last
Saturday was not just a visit
to a beautiful old estate. It
was a homecoming.
Lottie's late husband Harris
managed the estate when it
was a working agricultural
property, and the couple lived
in a small vernacular cottage
'iI


adjacent to the main house for
14 years.
"I raised nine kids, and four
of them were born here," she
said. "When he finished
working here, we moved to
Okeechobee."
Now 89 years old, Lottie
was accompanied by her
daughter-in-law, Jane Sills,
and granddaughter Lisa Sills.
The trio walked slowly
around the old cottage, off
limits to the public because it
has not been restored to a safe
condition. They peeked in the
windows and Lottie remi-


nisced, sharing her memi

Farm Bureau recognizes Food Check-Out Day


Special to the News-Stun
Food in America is afford-
able. In fact. in only about 40
clays, the average American
will have earned enough dis-
posable income to pay for his
or her food supply for the
entire year, according to the
Highlands County Farm
Bureau.
As a result, the Highlands
County Farm Bureau cele-
brated Feb. 10 as Farm
Bureau's Food Check-Out
Day. According to the. latest
statistics compiled by the
Agriculture Department's
(USDA's) Economic Research
Service, American families
and individuals currently
spend, on average, just 10
percent of their disposable
personal income for food.
Applying the current statis-
tic to the calendar year, it


means the average household
will have earned enough dis-
posable income that por-
tion of income available for
spending or saving to pay
for its annual food supply in
just 36 days.
"Not only is America's
food supply the world's
safest, but it's also the most
affordable," said Donna
Howerton, board member of
Highlands County Farm
Bureau. "It speaks well of our
nation's increasing standard
of living, which would cer-
tainly be reduced without the
safe, abundant and affordable
domestic food supply pro-
duced by America's farmers
and ranchers."
In comparison to Food
Check-Out Day, Tax Freedom
Day, the day the average
American had earned enough


money to pay federal, state
and local taxes, was April 19
last year, according to the Tax
Foundation.
"I find it amazing that peo-
ple can pay for their yearly
food supply nearly three
months earlier than it would
take them to satisfy their tax
burden," Howerton said.
"Rather than being an eco-
nomic burden, food remains
quite a bargain for shoppers.
That's they way it should be."
Howerton hopes Americans
will come to understand that
the high-quality, affordable
food they enjoy is "a product
of our successful food pro-
duction and distribution sys-
tem as well as America's
farmers retaining access to
effective and affordable crop
protection tools."


Special to the News-Sun
Women volunteers raised
the walls for Highlands
County's Habitat for
Humanity's 100th home. This
is the third home built by
women, in partnership with
Carol Clark and sponsored by
Drs Vinod & Tarlika Thakkar
and Friends of Habitat.
Lunch was provided to the
volunteers by Mid Florida
Credit Union.
Women Build is a Habitat


for Humanity International
program that encourages
women and girls to have fun,
learn skills, and make a dif-
ference by building homes
and communities. Nearly 900
Habitat homes have been built
by women crews around the
world.
Each year, 150 or more
homes are added as affiliates,
donors and sponsors discover
the impact of women volun-
teers and their resources.


Women Build has a variety
of ways for local women to be
involved. Lowe's will sponsor
hands-on training designed to
help them learn and work.
Call Highlands County
Habitat for Humanity at 453-
9695 or visit 825 W. Main St.
Suite 200, Avon Park.
Many women get involved
with Women Build with no
construction skills, yet they
learn and make a great
impact. Training will be pro-
vided on site.


Blast at the Ball

Patrons and volunteers alike
were present during the Red
and White Ball, a charity func-
tion to benefit the American
Red Cross Highlands Chapter.
The event is made possible
thanks to donations from the
community and key sponsors.
Before dinner champagne was
passed out among each table
and a toast (above) was given.
Denise Hamilton and Gary
Kemmerline (right) peruse an
item donated for the silent auc-
tion. The basket, donated by
Highlands Little Theatre, con-
tained playbills from New York
City along with HLT tickets and
memorabilia.

County receives
donated tractor
for department
Special to the News-Sun
Ring Power Corporation
has donated an AGCO
Challenger Series Compact
tractor to the Highlands
County Parks and Recreation
Department. Vicki Pontius,
Parks and Recreation direc-
tor, said, "We were surprised
and of course thrilled to
receive this tractor and will
put it to good use in maintain-
ing our parks system, particu-
larly at the new sports com-
plex."
These types of tractors are
designated for use by Parks,
Recreation and Conservation
Departments of various coun-
ties in a continuing effort to
assist and facilitate the local
communities in which Ring
Power's employees live and

UTILITY
Continued from 1A
town's growth to the north,
increasing its tax base. Worley
said the town would only have
to add a meter reader to account
for the additional water plants.
"We pay county taxes too,"
Worley said, calling the dupli-
cation of services cost ineffec-
tive. "Those county commis-
sioners represent us too. That
gets lost in the whole shuffle."
Lake Placid has a good rela-
tionship with its neighbors to
the north, Tomoka Heights,
Worley said.
But, on Tuesday 75 people
from the subdivision voiced
their opposition to the purchase
fearing that they'd lose repre-
sentation. They also opposed
annexation.
Harold Owen, chairman of
the Placid Utility Advisory
Committee, said Harris is a


friend with whom he normally
agrees.
However, he asked the coun-
ty to not "sell us out" to Lake
Placid.
"I don't see anything that's in
our favor," Owen said.
Other Tomoka Heights resi-
dents said the county had a
"first class" staff with open
lines of communications. They
said the plant has adequate
pressure with few problems and
they don't want the "political
hassles" of annexation.
"It's unfortunate because we
have gotten along for a very
long time," Worley said. "We're
all here together."
The councilwoman said she
had planned to speak with the
residents to explain the town's
intentions and its affect on
Tomoka Heights.
Though she was caught off
guard with the county's discus-
sion, she still plans to visit with
them.


"I don't think that anybody
there who had an issue was
being unreasonable," Worley
said. "We are at the point where
we need to grow."
In his presentation to the
commissioners, Gavarrete said
the county has made several
improvements to the water and
sewage treatment plants in its
12 years of ownership, both
utilities operate in the black and
have enough capacity to facili-
tate growth.
On Friday, he told the News-
Sun that the county needs to
decide if it's going to be in the
utility business or not.
In the end, the commission-
ers weren't ready to make a
decision. Chairman C. Guy
Maxcy recommended that
Tomoka Heights residents sit
dowlrwith town representatives
and hear their proposal.
"The only place in the whole
county that the county owns
any utilities is on our doorstep,"
Worley said.

BOOKS

ful are awarded certification.
Four levels of review,
always by accountants from
other states than the candi-
dates, screen out the best of
financial reporting, with each
reviewer assigning a grade.
A city's report is assessed
for three main elements:
Thqre has to be a detailed
accounting of the funding and
costs; reports have to be sub-
mitted year after year to pro-
vide the essential historical
context; and there has to be an
introductory narrative that
provides a direction for the
reader.
Stephen Gauthier, director
.of the ..association.s technical
services center, said certifica-
tions last only a year.
Governments have to reapply
annually.
In fact, Green and her staff,
with the help of every city
department, are at work com-
piling the report for 2006.
"It's definitely a team
effort," Green said, although
in the end she is the one
recording and crunching the
figures.
Green is a certified public
accountant. She has worked
for the city for six years.
She couldn't help beaming
with pride, as she accepted a
plaque from City Manager
C.B. Shirey Monday night,
and basked in the warmth of
applause.
It took Green three months
to find and present all the


information the association
requested. It was a monumen-
tal effort, she said, that she
couldn't done without the
help of others.
Gauthier explained that one
powerful incentive for a gov-
ernment to go through the
lengths and effort required,
apart from the prestige, is that
financial rating agencies, give
high marks to governments
that fulfill the association's
high standards.
Gauthier said the goal of
the program is to encourage
responsive, transparent gov-
ernment.
With its strong emphasis on
statistics, and logical organi-
zation, making the informa-
tion user friendly, Gauthier
said the reports make citizen
access easy. .. .
The reports are booklet
length.
For example, Green said
Avon Park, a small city, pro-
duced a work of 125 pages.
She said, by way of compari-
son, that Highlands County's
report was 300 pages long.
And the reports are exhaus-
tive, she added. For instance,
she not only had to report the
number of city streets, but the
exact number of pot holes the
city had filled over the year.
But the most important part
of the program, Gauthier said,
even more than the detailed
snapshot of a moment, was
the longitudinal study it pro-
vided.
"Go to a doctor once," he
said, "and she can't really tell
you much. It takes more than
one visit, to see what's hap-


opening over time. That's what
these reports do. And. in such
detail, you can track any num-
ber of factors. That's why so
many governments stay with
the program once they're in
it."
Gauthier pointed out the
program could also help gov-
ernments gain a clearer pic-
ture of where money is going,
and where growth is occur-
ring. He said that a slow,
incremental rise in public
safety dollars, for example,
might not stand out as a trend,
until there was 10 years of
data to examine, including
actual numbers.
By tracking and accounting
for most, if not all, of its dol-
lars, a government may also
sort out which dollars belong
to whom, and come from
where. This is especially
important, he said, as there
were so much cross-govern-
ment funding.
"You should be proud,"
Gauthier said. "It's a rigorous
process. It shows a really
strong commitment, by the
individual and the city, to go
the extra step toward good
government."

wants to see a more detailed
listing of costs, expenses and
revenues before the board
makes its decision.
"To me, what's important is
to have information, especial-
ly financial information,"
Stewart said. "We need to
have something more compre-
hensive and informative
before moving ahead. It takes
more than faith."
Stewart wants to see "good,
hard numbers," and added
that her concern was doing
what was best for the county's
taxpayers.
"I'm not voicing opposi-
tion," Stewart said. "But, I
want to, make sure we have
the numbers. We can't make
decisions from the heart. We
have an obligation to make a
decision from our heads."
Stewart asked if SFWMD
could retain its ownership
over the property while the
county served as a partner.
Fred Davis, land stewardship
director at SFWMD, said the
water district had discussed
partnering with Florida
Atlantic University at the
property, but the board reject-

ed the proposal.
The district "made a firm
statement that they're not in
the business of historic devel-
opment," Davis said.
Davis said the district
would listen to any counter
proposals offered by
Highlands County, but added
he couldn't theorize on what
the that board would do if the
county refused.
Stewart then asked if
Florida Atlantic University
had looked into taking owner-
ship of the property. Loisa
Kerwin, assistant director at
FAU's Center for
Environmental Studies who
has worked closely on the
proposal, said FAU had
looked into taking ownership
"very carefully." The univer-
sity decided not to take own-
ership because Highlands
County is not in its five-coun-
ty "core service area."
Stewart said the county
does not have the expertise to
deal with all aspects of the
proposal recreation, his-
toric, ecologic and education.
"We don't have experience
in any of (the facets), except
historical preservation,"
Stewart said.
She thought it was "inter-
esting" that other entities did-
n't want to take over the prop-
erty.
"I think we all think it's a
laudable idea," Stewart said.


"But, who's the best entity to
be in charge?"
Bates asked Cornelius for
the dollar amount the county
would have to put in to run
the property. Cornelius said
the commission would work
with county planners and staff
to put the numbers together.
Cornelius said Bates would be
surprised by how low the
number was, to which he
responded, "surprise me."
Commissioner Andrew
Jackson was "generally sup-
portive" of the county obtain-
ing the property, although like
other commissioners he asked
for more detailed budgetary
data. "
Cornelius said the estimat-
ed budget of the homestead,
which would be renamed the
Pearce Homestead Heritage
Park, would be $100,000 to
$125,000 a year. She said
$100,000 a year could "easi-
ly" be raised in donations and
grants.
County acquisition of the
homestead would have a
"very minimal impact" on the
county's insurance costs,
according to a letter from
Sherri Bennett, risk manager
for the county.
The next discussion on the
proposal has not yet been
scheduled, depending on how
soon numbers are compiled.

NPH Hobbies keeps hobbyist stocked


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Newly
opened NPH Hobbies com-
bines Javier Ortiz' skills and
interests.
He was a Ford mechanic for
15 years and for the past five
years his hobby has been radio-
controlled cars.
He said, "My wife Anna and
I moved from hectic Miami
two years ago to create a better
life for our two kids, age 2 and
5."
Because radio-controlled
cars are gas powered, they can
go extremely fast. Kids love
them, but need adult supervi-
sion. Luckily, the hobby
appeals to all ages. "Older peo-
ple tell us that age doesn't mat-
ter as long as you're having
fun," Anna Ortiz said.
Out-of-the-box models can
run 20 mph, while others can
go over 100 mph. Prices start
at $50 for a used. A modified,
full-blown race car can be
$700. "Your imagination and
wallet are the only limitations,"
Javier Ortiz said.
It's a fun hobby to share
with kids. The Ortiz, family
especially likes it because it
includes families. Even women
who are single parents are
involved. It's not just for men.
Radio-controlled car enthusi-
asts go to Avon Park racetrack
together. On weekends are
races, hill climbs and other
events to show off the radio-
controlled cars. There is also a
club which meets monthly for
a yearly membership fee of
$50 with access 24/7 at the DC
Off-Road RC Park next to the
BMX track in Avon Park.
NPH Hobbies carries all

brands but Ortiz specializes in
customization. There is no
charge for special orders and
waiting time is minimal. In
addition, a table is available for
working on your car. Charlie
Wortham likes to bring his car,
purchase the parts and work on
it here. He said, "Javier helps
us out. He always has the parts
I need. Now I don't have to
drive to Lakeland."
Dustin Rumley feels the
same and said, "I have a mon-
ster truck and needed a battery


pack. Javier was able to answer
my questions about the fuel set
up. I like this hobby shop
because he specializes and
caters to radio-controlled cars."
Starter kits are available if a
person is brand new to the
hobby. Ortiz is knowledgeable,
and he shares his experience to
help people get a good start.
There is no charge for this
training. NPH carries parts and
anything necessary to build a
radio-controlled car.
This hobby is for people


who like the excitement of
NASCAR, but want something
safer. The whole family can
attend races, family events and
contests together. "It's all about
having fun and getting families
together. It's something fun to
do on weekends," Anna Ortiz
said.
NPH Hobbies is at 104 U.S.
27 South (next to Reed Motel)
in Avon Park. Hours are 9:30
a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through
Saturday. Call 462-0688 for
details.

African art provides a


hands-on experience


SEBRING Hill-Gustat
Middle School students had the
opportunity to experience a
mini museum of authentic
African art Jan. 22.
A large part of the collection
of Betty Ford-Smith was on
display for art students to not
only see .but experience directly
through touch and interac-
tion. "It was the best thing I
have ever seen in a school
classroom," expressed Kevin
Wheaten, whose own artwork
is respected as outstanding
among his peers.
Ford-Smith shared her col-
lection with the students by dis-
cussing the history and uses of
the individual pieces.
Volunteers from the class were
selected to try out the four dif-
ferent types of stools for com-
fort as she elaborated about the


significance of each type of
stool. As well, students learned
about various tribes, mostly
from the west Coast of Africa,
and how their art work differed.
"It was really fascinating to
hear about all of the different
beliefs these people had," stat-
ed Angie Singley, a sixth grad-
er.
Another classmate, Ruben
Montalvo quickly added, "All
the different types of .woods
that were used is what was
amazing. Some of the masks
were really heavy, while other
masks were light."
"I was lucky to get to school
early so I got a chance to help
set up the display." To sum it all
up, I'd have to say, the whole
collection was just amazing,"
reported Oluwafemi Awomewe,
whose own name is Nigerian.

Valentine's Day: A day for love and giving


Happy Valentine's Day.
Other than Christmas, this is the
other holiday with a primary
color of red, and like Christmas,
this holiday also celebrates life.
Blood cannot be manufac-
tured, at least chemists have not
been able to reproduce a syn-
thetic compound that most bod-
ies will recognize and utilize in
the same way as human blood
that is transfused.
The average adult has about
10 to 12 pints of blood in
his/her body. Your body dis-
cards old blood and manufac-
tures new blood all the time.
Blood delivers oxygen, food
and hormones, removes carbon
dioxide and other waste, trans-
ports protective antibodies,
cells and clotting factors, and
acts as a coolant.
Blood is donated by people
for people. It is easy to donate.
From start to finish, the process
takes about a half hour, and the
actual donation takes about 6 or
7 minutes.


Hospice offers
SEBRING When people
die, their families and loved
ones may need help to cope
with the pain and sense of loss.
Good Shepherd Hospice

where people can share their
feelings with others and learn
ways to work through their
grief.
A six-week adult grief sup-
port group is scheduled to run

Ekici, Duharte
get certifications
SEBRING Dr. Sedat T.
Ekici and Dr. Luis A. Duharte,
of Heartland Gastroenterology
Center, were recently certified
by the American Board of
Internal Medicine last October.
Ekici, an internal medicine
physician specializing in gas-
troenterology, began his inter-
nal medicine residency at Long
Island College Hospital in
Brooklyn, N.Y., in 1999.
A member of the American
Gastroenterology Association,
he completed his
Gastroenterology Fellowship at
that same institution.
Ekici is fluent in both French
and Turkish and has intermedi-
ate Spanish language skills.
Duharte, an internal medi-
cine physician specializing in
infectious diseases, received
his medical degree from the
University of Buenos Aires
School of Medicine in
Argentina and, in 2000, began
his work as medicinal doctor in
charge of national and multina-
tional military and Special
Forces operations in Lima,
Peru. More recently, Duharte
worked as Chief Fellow of the
Veterans Affairs Medical
Center in San Juan, Puerto
Rico.
Duharte is advanced cardiac
life support certified and fluent
in both Spanish and English.
The American Board of
Internal Medicine is available
on the World Wide Web at

either doctor, call 453-4887.


The process is rel- ft-A
atively simple. First
you register, then you.,
are given a mini- ,.

perature, hemoglobin
and hematocrit will
be taken and noted
for you. This is to LFES

After donating,
you may enjoy
refreshments which will begin
to replenish the pint of blood
fluids. In this short time period
you will have given a life to
someone else. When you give
blood it is replaced quickly. The
fluid content is usually replaced
within the next 24 hours.
Valentine's Day is about love
and giving. What greater gift is
there than to give the gift of
life? And who better to give the
gift of life than the person who
has become ill or injured.

-i'" Our local blood
center strives to meet
the demand for blood
in the three hospitals
in our county. Most
of the time we are
able to meet that
goal, but not always.
One way you can
give a Valentine is to
VIERS become a regular
donor. It's relatively
Stroup simple mark on
your calendar the
next eligible donation
date, and then strive to donate
as soon as you become eligible.
Many of us work, and trying
to become a regular donor is
sometimes difficult. The Blood

seamless as possible by being
open all day Saturday, and
Thursday evenings. In addition,
the Big Red Bus is out in the

GO GIRLS is start
Without an official and firm plan in place just yet,
school officials are already doing what they can to
curb truancy problems.
One of the biggest efforts is taking place through
GO GIRLS, Giving Our Girls Inspiration and
Resources for Lasting Self-esteem. It is a new pro-
gram being implemented in county schools that pro-
motes healthy living, leadership, sense of self and
community, body acceptance and overall increased
mental and physical well-being for girls. And through
it all, it deals with issues that lead to truancy and
helps promote students making responsible decisions
... something that can't be learned,at too young of an
age.
The GO GIRLS sessions will be groups of eight to
12 girls, keeping the sessions small so that the infor-
mation can be well absorbed. There are to be eight
group gatherings of 90 minutes each. The curriculum
depends on the participants and each week, the girls
will be called to action with challenges.
Those girls who complete the eight-week sessions
will help out with future groups.
School officials explain that programs like GO
GIRLS are important to truancy concerns because as
students get older they become the most important
part of their own attendance.
The problem of truancy is proven by a rate of 11
percent of middle school students and 13 percent of
high school students who are missing more than 21
days of school. That's nearly double the number of
elementary school age students.
Self-esteem, peer pressure, problems at school or
home and stress can all lead to a lack of attendance
from older students.
When students are absent from classes, they miss
out on important days of learning. That is something
that no child, boy or girl, young or teenage, can
afford.
The fact that school officials have put this program
together and are working on other programs is
encouraging for a community that is concerned about
the truancy rate.
To volunteer time, places to meet, or if you are a
teen interested in participating in the GO GIRLS pro-
gram, call Susan Christman at 633-9424 or Susan
Buelow at 386-6040, ext. 277, for more information.


Looking

Perhaps there is something
in the air, or maybe we just
make this time of year seem
just a bit different. Maybe it is
the personalities of people
surrounding us, or the con-
stant display of hearts and
flowers that get into our
heads. Either way, we all
know that Valentine's Day is
here.
Today is a day that was
designed to celebrate love and
friendship. Yet, today can be a
very difficult day for many
people. While others are cele-
brating the relationships they
have, others are grieving over
the loss of love, or the lack of
love. This year, let us not for-
get about those people.
According to the History
Channel, the events surround-
ing the patron saint of this
holiday, Valentine, is quite
mysterious. Some hold onto
the belief that he married peo-
ple while Claudius of Rome
declared a law for no mar-
riages. Others say that he
helped Christians escape the
brutal treatment that the
Romans were inflicting upon
them.
Although the history sur-
rounding Valentine's Day is
actually quite broad and,
vague there is one thing that it
does encompass the pur-
suit of love.
There are many definitions
surrounding love in today's
world. One of which is for the
self-pleasure and happiness.
Yet, the greatest form of love
that has ever encompassed
this world is that of the heav-
enly kind.
Christians and non-
Christians alike have heard
and quoted from the famous
"love chapter" in the Bible -
1 Corinthians: 13. It speaks
about .love being that of
unselfishness, kind, hopeful,
and preserving. It speaks
about love being that of


for love


MURPHY'S LAW

Lindsey Murphy


patience and unfailing devo-
tion.
This kind of love is fierce
and bold; it serves others
without wanting anything in
return. This is the kind of love
that is not a feeling, but rather
an action. An action that is a
choice to be given and is able
to be displayed throughout
everyday. This is the kind of
love that you are able to see
when a husband takes care of
his paralyzed wife or when a
mother cares for a newborn
infant.
This, however, is just one
form of love. There is another
- one that is given from a
father who loves their child.
This love is given by a
Creator who loves his cre-
ation and sees continually
what was done by the works
of His hands. This is the love,
from the author of the world,
the love that only he can give
to his children. After all, God
is love and he does love us.
Let us be thankful for the
love that surrounds us each
and every day. Let us chose to
give to others a love that is
not about ourselves. Today,
let us show what the defini-
tion of love is all about.

February is aglow with love


The focus is Valentine's
Day set securely in the
middle of the month. It seems
all of February inspires loving
thoughts and actions whether
before the 14th, during that
day, or basking in the after
glow.
But love is not something
that just descends upon us -
though the yearning to love
and be loved by that special
someone is palpable. Feelings
are most certainly involved;
yet, love is an active verb and
a choice we make.
It kind of reminds me of
how, as a child, I yearned to
play the piano.
I had been given the oppor-
tunity when I was in fourth or
fifth grade. But, without a
piano at home, practicing was
difficult.
I walked a distance to our
church, where I was permitted
to practice my lessons for a
time. However, this was a
tedious way to develop the
.practicing habit and achieve
any measure of success. So, I


put my dream aside.
However, I never
lost the yearning.
Piano music was "
always my favorite,
and I imagined that .
the ability to play
would be mine
someday. ,
Eventually, that
day came when I Refle
was an adult. During Jan
a traumatic and lone-
ly time in my life, I decided to
take the plunge and find a
piano teacher.
I had lofty goals and aspira-
tions. Often my teacher
reminded me that though I
was an adult, I still had to
start at the beginning and
work my way to the more dif-
ficult pieces I longed to play.
I remember when she first
gave me a classical piece of
music. I couldn't believe that
my fingers on the keys were
producing a song written by a
master composer. But, read-
ing music still wasn't easy for
me and so the song didn't


flow as naturally as
I wanted it to.
However, with
hours of practice,
the composition
became a part of me
and my memory -
a1 allowing free
t i expression. I was
learning to play by
actions heart.
Merop But, that only
erop came after I heeded
my teacher's instructionfs, and
learned how to play by the
rules. As a new pupil, I had
started playing with one hand
then adding the other. I
learned proper fingering. I
practiced scales and became a
better sight reader.
Eventually, the rules
became a part of me and I
could "forget" them and play
from my heart. That transfor-
mation resulted in depth of
feeling and expression.
Is love so much different?
First, we learn to .play by
the "rules" so to speak. We
get to know one another slow-


ly in the company of others,
observing and interacting. We
respect and sacrifice for one
another. We open our hearts
and share our dreams.
Gradually, naturalness
emerges and the things we've
learned about each other
become part of who we are in
the relationship. Depth of
feeling and expression assures
us that we have learned to
"play", fro. our hearts.
And, have- we not "just
described a true friendship
where grace, commitment,
understanding, respect and
sacrifice abound? Is not that
the best basis for a loving
marital relationship?
It's like friendship has
become the lyrics sung to the
notes of love and played
by heart.

Letters


Merchants still

miss Cruise
Editor:
I wrote a letter to the editor
last month about the lack of
support from the downtown
merchants during the Second
Saturday Downtown Cruise.
Well, here we are again the day
after the cruise and I must say
that the cruise last night
seemed to be a big success, in
spite of the fact that there was
not a great showing from the
downtown merchants. It was
better than last month, though.
The stores that were open
were Iris & Butterflies,
Brenner's Pottery & Craft
Gallery, Canova's Deli, Tats by
Wes, Myans Nails & Spa, Ideal
Golf, Pieces of the Past, The
Hive, and Dad's Hot Dog
Wagon. Where were the other
places?'
There was a good attendance
from the public, partly due to
the fact that the Roaring '20s
Downtown Sale was there ear-
lier. There must have been 200
or 300 people wandering in and
out of the stores that were open.


One of the first comments
we heard from a lady walking
by our trucks was, "How come
there are so few stores open?"
This was the biggest turnout at
the cruise on the Circle that we
have seen in a very long time
and still there were a lot of
stores that remained closed.
If it wasn't for two vendors,
Smitty's Grill from Titusville
,and Bayou Billys from New
Smyrna Beach, and Dad's Hot
Dog Wagon and Canova's,
there would not have been any
place for visitors to eat. Some
people would have liked to go
in and sit down to dine instead
of eating a hot dog standing up.
Too bad for the downtown food
establishments. They lost out
on some revenue.
We heard that one place ran
out of food and that was why
they weren't open. I guess they
never heard of Publix or
Sweetbay.
We talked to the people from
both of the out-of-town ven-
dors that stayed over after the
Roaring '20s Downtown Sale
and they both said they were
glad they stayed. It was very
beneficial monetarily. Too bad


the restaurants on the Circle
didn't have that bit of silver in
their pockets.
I must say that I was remiss
last month in omitting a down-
town merchant that was open
during the January Cruise. LK
Artworks Gallery was open.
Sorry, but where were you last
night? I walked down
Ridgewood to see your store,
but you were closed. Catch you
next time.
One other thing. When is the
city going to get the tall street
lights working? I didn't see any
on and the one we were under
kept blinking all night long. It
did the same thing last month.
It's the one in front of the drug-
store if anyone wants to check
it.

Special Stars

Editor:
I want to tell you about some
very special people. They are


angels to our Special Stars.
This is my second year going to
Reflections on Silver Lake, a
wonderful bunch of caring peo-
ple. Our Special Stars are our
handicap adults who compete
in different sports. We are hon-
.ored to have the use of
Reflections on Silver Lake
facilities. The Special Stars
play shuffleboard, horseshoes
and bocce ball.
The lovely people not only
allow us to use all their equip-
ment but help our Special Stars
by explaining the games. My
son, Brian Harrison, plays
shuffleboard. The people show
them how to push the puck
slower or harder. They keep
score, and put the pucks in a
line each time, then tell them
when it's their turn. They never
talk down to them; they
encourage each one. My heart
fills with pride to watch each of
them get points. They get so
excited and it's a wonderful
feeling that people open up
their hearts to our Special Stars.
We have wonderful volun-
teers of our own too. It's a job

to go and gather up sticks
and pucks and pads for the
benches, but we are grateful
to each of them.
I helped when I could but I
just had a shoulder operation
and heart surgery in April and
don't do as much as I want to.
So for all these wonderful
people who help the Special
Stars, they should be com-
mended. I love to watch each
of them. Their spirit flows.
The horseshoes are a wonder-
ful sport and the ones who
play have a ball.
Bocce ball is complicated
to me. But these people show
them how. They take time to
teach them. They give up all
their time and equipment just
for them. There is a gentle-
man who goes and gets chairs
and brings them up for those
who watch.
When the three weeks of
practice is over, they have the
last time competition Feb. 5.
Afterwards, these people let
us use their clubhouse for a
pizza party and award cere-
mony.
Cindy Marshall is the num-
ber one person in our Special
Stars' lives. She is a mentor, a
person who gives so much
that without her we would
fold up. No one can imagine
the work that goes into all she
does. She plans for the whole
year. Softball, tennis, bowl-
ing, basketball, karaoke, par-
ties, dances, swimming, the-
ater, party, billiards, Western
Jamboree; track and field,
and cycling. Every month
there are things going on for
our Special Stars. We are so
grateful to her and all the vol-


unteers who help us to keep
our adults busy and active.
My son is with Rainbow
Support and he has a compan-
ion. He has housekeeping and
personal care.
We owe a thank you to
Becky Kerschner, Nancy
Nelson, and Beth, who helps
their clients to be on top of
things. They take them shop-
ping. Brian and some are
going to the college for exer-
cise classes on Nautilus
machines. This is good for
them. They go to Music in the
Park each month and cook
out and all the activities that
come here. Also we get our
passes to Cypress Gardens so
we can go anytime of the year
on a pass.
I just want to say for all of
our Special Stars how much
we appreciate all those who
help and give of themselves
to make their life as normal
as possible. To put them in
the community as they give
so much to our community.
Some hold down jobs here,
others go to a day program.
I pray they all have a won-
derful life and are loved. If
you see a handicapped per-
son, remember they need
respect as much as each of
you. God gave us these spe-
cial people to love and give a
chance. You can see how
much they mean to us.

good service
Editor:
We see so much negative
information in the newspaper
regarding our police depart-
ment. I want to pass on' to
your readers an act of kind-
ness we experienced on
Saturday, Feb. 3, at 8:30 p.m.
It was dark,, raining and
cold. We were on the Sebring
Parkway when we felt our left
rear tire going flat. There
wasn't much room to pull
over and not much light, so
we pulled over on a side road.
My husband tried to fix the
tire, but wasn't successful.
After approximately one-half
hour, a police car pulled up
behind us and saw our prob-
lem. Sgt. Tom Gilliard of the
Sebring Police Department
offered to put our spare tire
on for us.
. We are both in our late 70s
and were so appreciative. He
stayed until we were on our
way again.
Thank you Sergeant.

Don't Shed



A Tear


Onions add layers of flavor to many holiday recipes
and family dishes. But, if you've had it with crying
over the cutting board, follow these "tearless" tips:

* Refrigerate onions a few hours before
cutting them

* Cut off the top first.

* Squirt a few drops of lemon juice on the
onion just after you cut into it.

* Peel the outer skin.

* Leave the root end intact while cutting.

Lake Placid Historical Society

Founders Garden Club.


The Depot receives



Yard of Month award


LAKE PLACID From the inception of the
Lake Placid Historical Society, one of the annual
events of the organization has been recognition of
a Pioneer Man and Pioneer Woman.
The festivities have varied from year to year,
but always culminated in a ceremony which cel-
ebrated a man and a woman who had lived at a
Lake Placid mailing address for at least 50 years.
The list of those so honored has been a "Who's
Who" of the pioneers of the town. A biography of
the two chosen each year has been featured dur-
ing the program and also has been published in
the local newspapers. The Pioneer Man is given a
western hat and bandanna donated by the Lake
Placid Feed and Western Wear. The Pioneer
Woman is given an apron and bonnet created by
Thelma Rhoades. The families of both honorees
are also introduced.
Crowning of the 2007 Pioneer Man and
Pioneer Woman is scheduled for Saturday, March
17. Carolyn Rider maintains a list of those who
have resided in the area for the required 50 years.
She noted that time spent in military service
counts toward the total years. In the interest of


maintain an up-to-date roster, Rider has asked
that anyone who has fulfilled the 50 year require-
ment send a card or letter to the society at P.O.
Box 304, Lake Placid, FL 33862 or call the muse-
um at 465-1771 during the open hours of 1-3:30
p.m. Monday through Friday. Years get by quick-
ly and there could be many people in the area
who fit the "pioneer" label but may not be on the
list.
The selection of the couple to honor each year
is done by pulling ten men's names fro a hat.
Then starting at the last name drawn, Rider calls
the person to confirm whether that individual is
able to attend the ceremony. If not, then she goes
back to the next name drawn until a Pioneer Man
is established. The same procedure is repeated for
the Pioneer Woman selection.
The community is invited to meet with the
society for the celebration at noon Saturday,
March 17, at the Lake Placid Woman's
Clubhouse, 10 N. Main Ave. This will be a cov-
ered dish luncheon, with beverages and table
service provided by the society.


AVON PARK When three hurricanes blew
through Highlands County in 2004 they did sig-
nificant damage to a business block on Main
Street.
The building that housed three businesses, lost
its roof and the elements took their toll on the
contents. When the owners, John Hill and John
Devany, decided to rebuild, they didn't expect the
setbacks that would keep the building closed for
more than one year. As things were going along
fairly well, mold was discovered, which set
rebuilding back for quite awhile. When reopen-
ing was in sight, a fire broke out, further setting
back the project. The building was finally
reopened with new businesses in place. The one
remaining business is The Depot Restaurant,
which is owned and operated by Hill and
Devany. While the store fronts are inviting to
their customers, it is the back entrances to the
businesses that makes customers feel welcome.
During the rebuilding, Hill and Devany decid-
ed to add some curb appeal to the back entrance
area. They called on Terry Hancock of Edgewood
Landscape and Nursery to design and implement
a landscape plan. He planted three separate areas
tied together with the same plants in each area.


One planting features a bench surrounded by a
tibichina bush, gold lantana, petunias and
plumbago. A second area has a two-seated bench
with Blue daze, gold lantana and crepe myrtle on
one side and lorpetulum, snow on the mountain
and gold lantana on the other. A person's eye is
drawn to the main planting area with a large cra-
nium in the center, that blooms several times a
year with its' white spider lily flowers on tall,
thick stalks. Surrounding the cranium are gold
lantana, blue daze, 'roses, variegated scheffelera,
day lilies, downy jasmine and hibiscus. Red
fountain grass borders the walkway to the restau-
rant. All of the plants have been arranged to start
with the lower growing plants at the edge leading
to the taller plants closer to the building. Where
there was once sporadic grass, there is now a
beautiful arrangement of plants. Employees Julie
Votaw and Dee Thompson maintain the area by
pruning the plants and removing spent blossoms,
under the watchful eye of Ila Habben.
If anyone happens to be visiting one of the
businesses in the building Today's Image, The
Battle Zone, Horace Williams Office Supply, or
The Depot Restaurant park in the back lot so
you can enjoy this beautiful landscape design.


Sebring Optimist Club congratulates local schools


SEBRING Sebring
Optimist Club congratulates to
the students from Hill-Gustat
Middle School.
They won over those from
Sebring Middle School in the
Annual Optimist Essay Contest.
Most of the students provided
some of the best essays in sev-
eral years. First place was Sara
Carol; second place, Nicholas
Fink; and third place, Caitlyn
Portis. They won savings
bonds, certificates and medal-
lions. All participating students


will be treated to a pizza party.
Two local committees are
pursuing state legislative action
to modify state laws to make
them more effective in reducing
truancy and bullying on school
campuses. The local school
board has already modified its
regulations pertaining to these
issues, but state laws should be
specific and complete in
addressing them on a more
solid and cohesive basis.
Congratulations to the
Sebring and Avon Park High


wrestling teams earning a place
in district and state tourna-
ments, especially the Avon Park
team, in only its second year of
competition. The Optimist Club
is proud to be one of its spon-
sors.
All of the schools, from
kindergarten through 12th
grade, need volunteers to help
the students achieve grade level
in reading, writing and figuring.
They also need nurturing' in
social skills. Please call Dr.
Laura Van Horn at 471-5662.

grandsons fighting in the Iraq war.


Legion honors two
AVON PARK This year the Avon Park
American Legion Auxiliary Unit 69 sent
Christmas boxes to the troops just as they have
since the war began.
Most times they never hear from the service-
men and woman nor do they expect to, but this
year they got a nice surprise. The ladies always
send to the children and grandchildren of its
members and two of the Legion's longest and
most dedicated members Boomer and B.J.
Kleinschrodt turned in the two names of their
grandsons. Both boys are playing an active roll in
the Iraq war with one being front line Baghdad
and the other Lt. Col. Scott Baldy, the base
Commander of Camp Buehring in Kuwait, the
base they all go through on way to Iraq.
Baldy took time from his huge responsibilities


servicemen in Iraq
and schedule to not only send, a certificate of:
appreciation but a treasured flag that flew "over
his base in Kuwait. Baldy is the kind of com-
mander that dots each eye carefully and shows
his personnel and those supporting them every
courtesy. At just 43 years of age he has risen to
such a respected position because he cares and
takes the time to let those at home know how
much they appreciate their efforts. Baldy is a
career man with the Ohio National Guard and
makes his home in Sunbury, Ohio with his wife
Kathy and 6-year-old daughter Megan.
The Kleinschrodts, being proud grandparents,
had the certificate framed and flag put into a
proper display case to hang on a wall of honor at
Post 69 and the Auxiliary was most proud to see
their many boxes sent through the years are real-
ly appreciated and make a difference.

for the beautiful hand-quilted
quilt.
Our pool is full of water and
looks very inviting. Hopefully it
won't be too much longer until
we can go for a swim. Think we
should crack a bottle of cham-
pagne to celebrate the grand
opening. I think we were the
only park in Florida without a
swimming pool.
Once again happy
Valentine's Day from everyone
in the Village. Remember, drop
' by 2323 Brunns Road and see
our swimming pool and do
come to our bazaar you will
be pleasantly surprised by the
beautiful crafts available and
the delicious funnel cakes.

Pastel Iris," floral composition.
Sunday, March 4 "White
Egret," wildlife composition.
These workshops are suitable
for all artist levels and numbers
are limited to 14 students to
ensure one to one tuition.
Classes will commence at 8:30
a.m. to 4:30 and 5 p.m. daily.
Each full day workshop is $85
plus materials. Jenkins' local
instructor in the Wet-Onto-Wet


technique Mara Trumbo is the
coordinator of the Florida
workshops. If anyone wishes to
attend but do not have all the
required brushes, paints etc.
Trumbo will have a full kit
available for sale or on loan at a
palette charge of $10 per day.

deposit per day are required for
registration. Full information
and sign-up forms are available
at the Caladium Co-op or call
699-5940.

paintings will be available for

It's the little things you Do Along the Way


That Can Help a Child Through the Day.


prepares Io
AVON PARK The Hibiscus Garden Club of
Avon Park met Feb. 8 in the home of Mary Lou
Lundblade and Dorothian Meyers who welcomed
members.
President Nina Seibold opened the meeting at
2 p.m. and led the Pledge of Allegiance.
Club chaplain Shirley Foster gave a reading
"Lesson on Life" in a pear tree. A father had four
sons who saw the same pear tree. One saw ugly
twigs, one new buds, one beautiful fragrant blos-
soms and the fourth a tree full of luscious fruit.
The moral of this story is that neither a tree nor a
man should be judged in a single season.
Treasurer Teri Sampler presented the club
financial report, which was accepted.
Nancy Heiring, reported that the arts depart-
ment of Avon Park High School is assisting.with
the cutting out, sanding and priming new figures
for the mail decorations.
The annual plant sale and cutting giveaway is
Saturday, Feb. 24, at the Bandstand in downtown
Avon Park. Hours are from 8 a.m. to noon. Club
members will bring cuttings from their gardens to
give away. Set up will begin at 7 a.m. A portion
of the proceeds from the sale support the
"Therapy Thru Plants" at Avon Park Correctional
Institute. Members are reminded to save azalea
cuttings for the APCI horticultural program.
Under new business was the discussion of a
butterfly garden at an assisted living facility. A
commitment of Lundblade, Heiring, Meyers,
Mary Lee King and Connie Ewell will visit the
area Saturday for further clarification of need.
A field trip to a plant nursery is planned.
Members will be contacted for a date and time.
Five members have been invited for the fifth
year to judge the entries for the Home Making
arts and crafts at the Hardee County Fair. Judges
will meet at 8 a.m. Monday in the parking lot of


r plant sale
the First Baptist Church.
The meeting program was given by club mem-
ber Lundblade. She is an AHS flower show
judge, garden judge and garden judge instructor.
She is also an AHS region board director of
Display Gardens in Region 11 consisting of
Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. There are 15
regions in the United States.
Applicants who desire to enter their gardens in
the national registry of Display Gardens must be
a member of the American Hemerocallis Society
for at least two years. Pictures of the garden high-
lighting daylilies are submitted with the applica-
tion. If approved, the garden will be open to the
public and by invitation during the blooming sea-
son. These gardens are lovely, many featuring
statues, water features and other landscaping
structures. Gardens may sell plants during the
tours.
Georgia and Florida each have their own
regions largely due to significant hybridizing
activity.
There are three types of daylilies; evergreen
and semi-evergreen and dormant. The evergreen
is best for Florida gardens. The other two types
require colder climates for best blooms.
Lundblade's garden is in Valley Center, Kan.
and has more than 1,000 daylilies. Meyers' gar-
den is in Bad Avenue, Mich. with more than 500
plants.
Teri Samper won the plant draw, a colorful
"Snow on the Mountain."
The next meeting will be hosted by Shirley
Foster on March 8. Anyone interested in attend-
ing, contact Seibold at 453-8528.
The meeting adjourned and members enjoyed
the hostess' garden, refreshment and good fel-
lowship.


TOPS 733 talks about cleaning out cupboards


SEBRING Taking Off
Pounds Sensibly 733 met
Thursday, Feb. 8, at the
Whisper Lake Clubhouse. The
meeting was called to order at 8
a.m. by Joan Olson.
The members did the pledge
to the flag and recited the TOPS
and Keeping Off Pounds
Sensibly pledges.
Seventeen members weighed
in. Shirley Geiger was the best
loser with a loss of 1.5 pounds.
Geiger also won the money for


being best loser Feb. 1.
Bernie Kilduff won the mys-
tery gift by unwrapping the
final layer of paper.
Discussion was about clean-
ing out cupboards and refriger-
ators of stuff that should not be
eaten. Out of sight, out of mind.
The chocolate heart contest
is over and the winners were
awarded. Geiger won first place
with 50 spaces filled in, win-
ning $5. Wanda Dickson won
second place with 40 spaces


filled in for $3.
The meeting was adjourned
at 8:30 a.m.
The group had a table at the
health fair at Reflections on
Thursday. Sue Willey and
Dixon greeted people and told
them about TOPS. The winner
of the 50 percent off a TOPS
membership was Alma Tosh.
Guests may attend one meet-
ing at no cost or obligation.
For details about TOPS, call

dicated above at the time of filing. The failure
of any person to file a petition within the ap-
propriate time period shall constitute a waiver
of that person's right to request an adminis-
trative determination (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in
this proceeding and participate as a party to it.
Any subsequent intervention will be only at
the approval of the presiding officer upon the
filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-
106.205 of the Florida Administrative Code
(F.A.C.).
A petition that disputes the material facts
on which the permitting authority's action is
based must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency
affected and each agency's file or identifica-
tion number, if known;
(b) The name, address and telephone
number of the petitioner, the name, address,
and telephone number of the petitioner's rep-
resentative, if any, which shall be the address
for service purposes during the course of the
proceeding; and an explanation of how peti-
tioner's substantial rights will be affected by
the agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when the peti-
tion received notice of the agency action or
proposed action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of
material fact. If there are none, the petition
must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes
which entitle petitioner to relief;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or
statutes the petitioner contends require rever-
sal or modification of the agency's proposed
action; and,
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the
petitioner, stating precisely the action petition-
er wishes the agency to take with respect to
the agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the materi-
al facts upon which the permitting authority's
action is based shall state that no such facts
are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above, as re-
quired by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing proc-
ess is designed to formulate final agency ac-
tion, the filing of a petition means that the per-
mitting authority's final action may be differ-
ent from the position taken by it in this notice
of intent. Persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by any such final decision of
the permitting authority on the applications)
have the right to petition to become a party to
the proceeding, in accordance with the re-
quirements set forth above.
Mediation is not available for this proceed-
ing.
In addition to the above, pursuant to 42
United States (U.S.C.) Section 7661d(b)(2),
any person may petition the Administrator of
the EPA within 60 (sixty) days of the expira-
tion of the Administrator(s) 45 (forty-five) day
review period as established at 42 U.S.C. Sec-
tion 7661d(b)(1), to object to issuance of any
Title V permit. Any petition shall be based only
on objections to the Title V permit that were
raised with reasonable specificity during the
30 (thirty) day pubic comment period provid-
ed in this notice, unless the petitioner demon-
strates to the Administrator of the EPA that it
was impracticable to raise such objections
within the comment period or unless the
grounds for such objection arose after the
comment period. Filing of a petition with the
Administrator of the EPA does not stay the ef-
fective date of any Title V permit properly is-
sued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter
62-213, F.A.C. Petitions filed with the Admin-
istrator of EPA must meet the requirements of
42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be
filed with the Administrator of the EPA at
U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington,

2007 Class 1A State Wrestling Championships


Shaanan Spiegel Sebring
145-pound Region 2-1A Champion


James Bland Avon Park Tim Mikula Sebring Josue Ortiz Avon Park
160-pound Region 2-1A Champion 189-pound Region 2-1A Champion 215-pound Region 2-1A Champion


Focus now switches to state for county's best


By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun.corn
AVON PARK Amid the joy of
winning a, Region 2-1A champi-
onship Saturday night, Avon Park
senior Josue Ortiz stopped for a sec-
ond to reflect on what it really
meant.
"This means nothing if I don't go
to state and place," he said after get-
ting his fourth straight pin of the
tournament to take the 215-pound
title.


Never mind that Ortiz had just
become Avon Park's second-ever
regional champ, winning his title a
half-hour after teammate James
Bland became the program's first
regional title winner at 160 pounds.
Regional titles aren't what you wres-
tle for it's all about state, and that
starts at noon on Thursday in
Lakeland.
Ortiz will be joined at the
Lakeland Center by five other
Highlands County wrestlers, three of


which are also regional champions
- Bland, plus Shaanan Spiegel (145
pounds) and Tim Mikula (189) of
Sebring. Avon Park's Kemosi Hatten
took second at 152 pounds and
Sebring's Ronnie Sliwicki was third
at 119.
The two wins and one runner-up
finish lifted the Devils to third place
in the regional standings, a huge
accomplishment for a second-year
program.
"I was just hoping for a top-10,"


Avon Park co-head coach Ed Brown
said. "I think they're peaking here at
the end of the season, and that's the
perfect time."
All six of the county contingent
will have to be at their peak if they
want to medal at state, since they all
have serious road blocks in their
paths to the finals. But none of those
road blocks are bigger than the ones
ahead'of Sliwicki and Hatten.
If Sliwicki (34-8) wins his open-
ing round match, he will face two-


time state champ Scotti Sentes of
Fort Myers-Riverdale, who hasn't
lost since falling in the state semifi-
nals two years ago and who many
say is the best wrestler in the state.
"They all got pretty hard draws,
but I think Ronnie got the worst
draw he could have gotten," Sebring
coach Dave Cunningham said. "He's
got Scotti Sentes who everybody
basically figures is unbeatable in

Class 3A Girls Basketball State Playoffs




Tigers topple Strea


S


Physical Dunbar team, shooting

woes prove too much for Sebring


By JEFF CANTWELL
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The Lady
Streaks never warmed up
shooting the basketball
Tuesday night and Dunbar's
Lady Tigers seized control
early to secure the Region 2-
4A semifinal game with a 45-
28 victory at Sebring High
School.
Trading shots back and
forth, Sebring's Nikela
;Sullivan hit a 3-pointer to
close the gap to 11-9 with
3:02 left in the open-
ing period. Dunbar DuI
closed the period with
a staggering 9-0 scor-
ing run that all but Seb
slammed the door on
Sebring's second con- -
secutive undefeated 2
regular season.
Bernice Fuller bagged a 3-
pointer with one second to go
in the first period to open up a
20-9 lead. Fuller hit two bas-
kets in the run and led all
scorers with 17 points.
Getting off to a good start
proved to be huge for the vis-
iting Tigers, according to
head coach Dwayne Donnell.
"That really helped us,"
Donnell said of the 11-point
first-period lead. "Calmed our
nerves to get up like that in
the first quarter. You know,
coming into an undefeated
gym, we were really nervous.
"We really played a tough
schedule this year, preparing
us for anything. We knew
they were a good team, but I

feel some of our tougher
opponents prepared us."
On the other side, Sampson
felt the game would have
been different if not for his
team's horrendous shooting.
"Shooting 10-for-51 (19
percent) just doesn't get it
done," Sampson said. "We
just didn't make any shots,
that's the bottom line. I
thought we rebounded well -
all other phases of the game, I
thought we played well. Ten
baskets ain't going to win you
bar many games."
That was the game,
S but that wasn't what
Sampson talked about
ing with his players in the
dressing room after the
S monumental season
came to an abrupt halt.
"I told them I was
proud of them," he said. "We
had a great year. We won
another district champi-
onship, we won a regional
game and the 47-2 record in
the last two years two
undefeated seasons so I
thought it was pretty good."
Sebring (25-1) was able to
stay even with Dunbar in the
second quarter, but couldn't
seem to put together a run
despite numerous opportuni-
ties off of turnovers. Both
teams scored 5 points apiece
in the second quarter, leaving
the Lady Tigers on top 25-14
during halftime.

their money.


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING Just when it
seemed like Team Corvette would
have the GT1 division all to itself
at this year's Mobil 1 12 Hours of
Sebring on March 17, there's word
that an Aston Martin racing effort
will challenge the class, and with
one of last year's LMP2 winning
drivers no less.
Liz Halliday reportedly will
share the driver's seat with
Spaniard Antonio Garcia in the
Team Modena DBR9. A third driv-
er is scheduled to be named later.

Team principals said they are

MEDALS
Continued from ID
the quarterfinals.
"If you lose in that second-
round match, you've got to
win three matches to get back
to that placement round. He'll
have to do what he did at
regional."
Hatten (31-9) doesn't have
it much easier if he wins his
opener, with George Bancroft
of Jupiter Christian waiting in
the second round. Bancroft
won the 145-pound title last
year and the 140-pound crown
the year before.
Avon Park co-head coach
Lee Elder agreed that Hatten
has a tough draw, but he
Brown have been telling their
wrestlers that the past is just
that the past and any-
thing can happen at state.
"You don't have to be the
best wrestler, you just have to
be the best wrestler for those
six minutes," Elder said.
"That's what we try to drill
into them. You're there, so
you've got just as good a

Ronnie Sliwicki (left, on top) and Kemosi Hatten (right, on top) both have tough second-round matches waiting for them if
they win their openers at the state tournament on Thursday.


chance as everybody else.
Records mean nothing, last
year means nothing and last
week means nothing. It's all
about this week.
"All the kids there are
good. It's who gets hot at the
right time and takes advan-


tage of the other person's mis-
takes."
.The four regional champs
also have their work cut out
for them if they want to medal
or, even better, win a champi-
onship.
Spiegel's (38-10) side of


the bracket has defending
125-pound champ Zack
Mastro of Naples-Palmetto
Ridge as well as highly
ranked Anthony Hess of
Jensen Beach and Mikula (34-
2) will have to, beat
Suwanee's Lee Laxton in the


semifinals if he wants to
improve on last year's runner-
up finish at 189 pounds.
Laxton lost to Sebring's Blake
Germaine in the 145-pound
final two years ago and was
third at 160 pounds last year.
Bland (32-2) has 43-3


Carter Downs of Jupiter
Christian in his side of the
160-pound bracket, and Ortiz
(31-3) has four wrestlers on
his side of the 215-pound
bracket who were at state last
year, including fifth-place fin-
isher Xavier Stinson of
Hollywood-Chaminade.
Bland, a sophomore, is the
only Red Devil with state
tournament experience all
three Streaks were at state last
year and that experience
should help him, Elder said.
"You can't replace experi-
ence, plus it helps to have
teammates going this year,
too," Elder said. "He's not the
Lone Ranger up there."
Brown said all three of the
Red Devil wrestlers have a
shot at taking home some
hardware.
"I think Kemosi's probably
got the hardest road, but I
think (all three) have a chance
to medal if they keep their
heads on straight and every-
thing goes according to plan,"
he said. "Of course, you know
how plans can go."


ASTON
Continued from 1D
Mans Series in Europe.
Halliday said she was excit-
ed about driving for Team
Modena and getting behind
the wheel of a DBR9.
"I have never driven an
Aston Martin before and I'm
looking forward to it. The
DBR9 is widely considered to
be the best GTlcar in the
world right now and I think
I'm the first woman to drive
one," she said.
It will be a switch from the
rear-engined Intersport LMP2
Lola/AER for Halliday, but
she's had similar experience,
having driven the big, front-
engine Lister Storm in the
2005 FIA GT Championship.
The 28-year-old
Californian set a record last
year, driving the final stint of
the 12 Hours and helping, to
,power the Intersport team to a
second-place overall finish,
- grabbing the highest finish
ever for a woman at the 12
Hours in the process. She fin-
ished fourth overall in points
for the 2006 ALMS season.


State Lic # RC-0066817


Reportedly, Halliday will
dovetail her 2007 motor rac-
ing exploits with another sea-
son of international three-day
evening as she strives to
achieve her unique double
goal of winning the Le Mans
24 Hours and taking an
Olympic medal for the United
States equestrian team.
Over the past two 12 Hours,
it has been a back-and-forth
battle between the Corvette
CR.6s and Aston Martins at
Sebring, with the green
Prodrive Aston Martin team
taking a class win in 2005
only to be unseated last year
when the millennium yellow
Corvettes celebrated their
50th anniversary at Sebring
with a trip to the top of the
GT1 podium.
Meanwhile, the drivers'
grid for the 55th edition of
America's oldest sports car
endurance race is beginning
to take shape. Officials from
van deer Stenr Racing have
announced that young Adam
Pecorari has been inked to
drive their Radical/AER


LMP2 in the 12 Hours, adding
another contender for the
already hot division.
"We're pleased to have
Adam join us this year," said
team owner Gunnar van der
Steur.
Pecori, who moved up from
the Formula Ford series, raced
with the team last year at
Mazda Raceway Laguna
Seca.
It appears that veteran
Andy Lally will be in the third
seat in the No. 16 Dyson
Racing Porsche LMP2 RS
Spyder at Sebring. He'll share
driving duties with Andy
Wallace and Butch Leitzinger
in the car.
Although most of his expe-
rience has been in GT cars, he
has raced at Le Mans in the
Miracle Courage/AER and
boasts three professional
championships and four run-
ner-up finishes over the past
seven years.
Another LMP2 car can -be
expected on the historic 3.72-
mile circuit, with Devin
Doran saying that the Horag

Andy Lally will reportedly be the third driver for the No. 16 Dyson Porsche during this
year's 12 Hours of Sebring.


Racing effort is preparing for
Sebring. They'll field a
Lola/Judd with drivers Fredy
Lienhard, Didier Theys and
Eric van de Poele. Like the
Aston Martin, they also will
contend in the 24 Hours of Le
Mans then race the Le Mans
Series in Europe.


In the GT2 division,
Petersen Motorsports/White
Lightning Racing has
announced that open-wheel
racing standout Memo Gidley
will be a reserve driver in the
No. 31 Ferrari F430 GT at this
year's 12 Hours.
The California-based driver


has two American Le Mans
Series starts and will act in
support of full-time team
drivers Tim Bergmeister and
Tomas Enge. It was unclear
whether Gidley would actual-
ly drive, with team principals
saying he'would be used-Oalna

STREAKS
Continued from ID
ground in the third period,
taking a 35-19 lead into the
fourth. Three field goals by
Fuller in the fourth period
ended any hopes Sebring had
of making a comeback.
Sophomore center Hannah
Shoop scored eight points
down low, but mostly Sebring
launched a bevy of long-
range shots. Unfortunately,
the Streaks shot 3-for-21
from 3-point-land and missed
41 2-point field goals.
Brittany Bullock led
Sebring with her second
straight 17-rebound game,
but nobody could turn those
possessions into points when
it counted most. Battling
Bullock on the boards were 6-
foot-1 Chelsea Gordon and 6-
foot Brittany Brown, both
juniors.
Sebring loses Bullock,
Sullivan and Chastity
Godfrey to graduation this
spring, but Sampson was
already planning for next
year, his 15th at the helm of
the Lady Streaks.


DRAGONS
Continued from 1D
and Conlin Veley had eight.
The Dragons best attack
came in the second quarter as
they outscored Frostproof 18-
12 and went into halftime
with a 23-23 tie. The
Bulldogs quickly took over in
the third quarter with a 11-3
run and posted a 42-30 advan-
tage going into the fourth.
After the game, Williams


hoped the game would moti-
vate his squad.
"I don't believe in luck and
I don't believe in chance," he
said. "I guess I believe in fate.
I hope we use this disappoint-
ment and let it burn inside to
keep us focused on being
back here next year.
"Thursday, we are going to
have to come out and play our
best game of the year. We
work on some good things in
practice. It is just a matter of
us doing it in the game."
