WFHT: The People's Station


News-Sun photo by SUE ANN CARPENTER
Owner Michael Cardillo broadcasts live, on air in his pro-
duction studio at WFHT 1390 AM Radio.


Local pool professionals

attend national classes


SEBRING Two. manage-
ment members of local pool
company Spas, Pools & Patio,
recently traveled to Atlanta to
participate in classes conduct-
ed by the Association of Pool
and Spa Professionals
(APSP).
Jacalyn Jansen and Robin
Smith, both of Sebring, com-
pleted and were certified in
five business classes in the


Program.
"The information we
learned was phenomenal!"
said Jansen, owner of Spas,
Pools & Patio, "It just goes to
show that you never really
know...how much you don't
know."
Smith also reports that this
is an ever-changing industry
and "you gotta stay on top of


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Michael
Cardillo is the new owner of
WFHT 1390 AM Radio. It's
the culmination of a lifetime
endeavor. At age of 9, he first
became involved with every
aspect of radio and over the
years operated many stations
in the northeast.
Educated at Brown
University and an engineer by
trade, he jumped wholeheart-
edly at this opportunity.
"This was a huge undertak-
ing. There was no signal
before. I not only rebuilt the
antenna, but added a new
transmitter and state of-the-
art audio processing,"
Cardillo said.
He built a new studio with
all new equipment and a cost-
ly special board that is not so
intimidating. "I added new
carpet, ceiling tile, and even
cleared the three acres of
land. It's a whole new sta-
tion," Cardillo said.
He stresses that WFHT is
not a corporate station and
they feel free to play anything
and everything. For the previ-
ous 20 years it was known as
WAVP and played only black
gospel. Now they play doo-
wop and oldies.
"I like to mix it up and play
a variety of good music, like
Luther Vandross, Smokey
Robinson, The Temptations,
Skyliners, Du Prees, and
Louie Prima. I have the
1. '_ ,- TTr- _,-,


States with more than 4,000
songs," Cardillo said.
On Saturday afternoons an
urban countdown features the
Top 20 popular contemporary
songs. "We're the new hot;
we're The People's Station.
Because we are independently
owned, we are more creative.
WFHT is a good, wholesome
station," Cardillo said.
With the focus of promot-
ing the local community and
area businesses, they air vari-
ous messages, like "say no to
drugs," or "donate blood." He
airs community-minded pro-
grams giving information to
caregivers of the elderly, tips
to diabetics, awareness fea-
tures about the lakes in our
area, plus other health and
community issues of interest.
"I want to appeal to seniors
and snowbirds and run pro-
grams they'll appreciate. I
enjoy sports, because I played
defensive half back and line
backer at Brown. I'd like to


carry local high school
games, or at least have a
wrap-up afterward. We're
open to input from our listen-
ers and what they want to
hear. We're looking for show
and program ideas," Cardillo
said.
T.J. Reno handles sales for
WFHT. He has been a musi-
cian for the past seven years,
playing rock, country and
blues in The Cruise Band.
"I've played every honky
tonk in the county as lead
singer, playing rhythm gui-
tar," Reno said. He has also
written a lot of Christian con-
temporary music.
At 1000 watts, WFHT
reaches a 40- to 50-mile
radius and is heard in Lake
Placid, Lakeland, Okee-
chobee and Wauchula. John
Joiner is their sales rep and
also deejays Top Shop, or the
JJ Show, which runs from 5-6
p.m. daily. He covers local
issues, sports and stock tips.


Robert Jones hosts the week-
end gospel show, and world-
wide radio consultant Ira
Littman shares his most up-
to-the-minute ideas and
advice on current radio
trends.
"Now this AM station has
an FM sound. You can hear
the mids, trebles, the highs
and lows with our new updat-
ed equipment. People will be
surprised and delighted when
they tune in," Cardillo said.
WFHT-1390 AM Radio is
at 801 U.S. 27, Suite 5 (across
from Winn Dixie in Avon
Park). The station operates 24
hours, seven days a week, but
the business hours are 10 a.m.
to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
Call 453-3423 or e-mail (for
sales) at agentx1599@
yahoo.com or go to
www.wfht/fla.com (under con-
struction). For other ques-
tions regarding the station, e-

Lead the charge
In its latest attempt to take from the nation's safety-
net hospitals, the Bush administration offers a special
insult to Florida. Its dramatic Medicaid cutbacks
would also renege on a deal it made with then-Gov.
Jeb Bush just 16 months ago. As administrative fiats
go, this one is tough to take. And Florida's congres-
sional delegation needs to fight it.
The numbers behind the proposed rule, published
Jan. 18 by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid
Services, are staggeringly cruel. Florida hospitals that
treat Medicaid and indigent patients would lose $932
million a.year. Perversely, those that carry the heavi-
est load would be hurt the most. All Children's
Hospital in St. Petersburg would lose $31 million,
Tampa General Hospital $64 mil-

tive Gary Carnes puts it: "There is
contingent no way to make this money up."

approval to placeable role in modern health
care, treating all patients without

reimbursement through the years

mechanism The need is so compelling that
then-Gov. Bush, while devising
for an experiment aimed at limiting
hospitals.' Medicaid costs, negotiated with
Medd rm CMS to allow continued hospital
Medicaid reform
payments through what was
known as the 'Upper Payment
Limit." CMS examined the local taxes used as a
match for the federal money and the distribution for-
mula for the hospitals, and approved both.
State lawmakers, in turn, found the hospital pay-
ments to be so vital that they made them a condition
of the Medicaid reform. "This waiver authority," says
the law, "is contingent upon federal approval to pre-
serve the upper-payment-limit funding mechanism
for hospitals."
The federal rule, if allowed to take effect on Sept.
1,. would undermine both the hospitals and the reform
law. Alan Levine, who helped negotiate the federal
waiver as secretary of the state Agency for Health
Care Administration, says CMS needs to, at a mini-
mum, exempt Florida from the rule.
Congress in the past has protected these safety-net
hospitals from the Bush administration's efforts. This
time, Florida's delegation needs to lead the charge.

It's not the cookies that are evil


' So I'm sitting on my couch,
laptop on my lap, semi-watch-
ing "The O'Reilly Factor"
while I write.
OK, I understand that there
are some people throwing
their hands up in horror at the
thought of me not writing in
seclusion and complete
silence. They think one can-
not write with noise. It's dis-
tracting, they say.
I'm not saying it isn't dis-
tracting at times. But dead
silence is an even worse dis-
traction. Maybe I'm wired
weird. I find I need something
going on to shut out the real
world while I'm playing in
my make-believe worlds
But I did get distracted
tonight. One reason was I
tried to work on several dif-
ferent projects at once. Right
now I have four different
Word documents open on my
laptop: this column, another
column, a chapter of a novel
I'm working on, and the doc-
ument I use to keep track of
my progress in my writing.
It sounds like I'm doing a
lot of work right now but it


really means I'm
jumping around a lot.
From this column to


Laura's
Look


the other column, Laura
which is on an entire-
ly different topic, to the chap-
ter of my book, which is on
something else altogether. I
don't normally recommend
this, not even for me.
Normally I write one col-
umn a week. That works
because the column only runs
one time a week. However, I
am getting ready to spend a
week away from any reliable
Internet access, so I'm trying
to have two columns ready to
go for Romona Washington '
'"(\Al'H -Sln e\ecutlie editor) '
to run. At least that's the plan.
But what distracted me the
most was a comment from
Bill O'Reilly, plugging a seg-
ment on his show. He said he
was going to, at some point,
talk about the possibility that
Girl Scout cookies were evil.
What? What could possibly
be wrong with Girl Scout
cookies? All right, maybe I
should consider them evil at
the moment, in the middle of


Diet Misery. I should
probably think of
them in the same way


Ware a vampire thinks of
garlic. I have resisted
buying them due to the diet,
but the thought of some of
those Thin Mints can weaken
me.
So, why are Girl Scout
cookies bad? Because people
are fat. Because kids are get-
ting fat. So the National
Action Against Obesity is
cranky. And they seem to
want the Girl Scouts to stop
selling the cookies because of
it.
Can I point out that no one
makes"' ;i 't ea' G'ir Scout
cookies? Granted, they are
tempting little things, yummy
and sold by charming young
ladies in uniform. But you
don't have to eat them, all
right?
Then Prince Charles recent-
ly made the comment that in
his opinion, McDonald's
should be banned. Yep,. you
read that right. If the Prince of
Wales had his way, there
would be no more Big Macs.


There was no mention of
other fast food franchises,
such as Burger King or Taco
Bell. Needless to say,
McDonald's was not amused
with the Prince's remarks.
I have to admit I'm not too
crazy about it myself. We're
going to start banning food
now?. We're going to ban
hamburgers? I am a Whopper
with cheese (no pickle) lover
and the only reason I haven't
indulged in one lately is it
will derail my efforts to lose
Weight.
And this is the key. Not
banning fast food restaurants,
but using the brains God gaye
' ius sto 'miiae' choices about
'when or if we indulge in
them.
All I can say is, I hope
Prince Charles finds his
words tastier than a Big Mac,
since I doubt he'll be showing
up at a McDonald's any time
soon.

'Ch k little'
Many factOFS CB0 COntribute ic eH


to increase in homelessness


The plight of the homeless
has dominated the news in
recent weeks, while many
within the community have
their assertion about what
contributes to homelessness
without knowing the facts.
The average American is
three paychecks away from
being homeless. Among the
contributing factors as report-
ed by the homeless resource
network:
1. On the job injury. Delay
with compensation from the
Worker's Compensation
Board.
2. Divorce. This can leave
one parent homeless, most
often it's the father, but there
are instances where the moth-
er and children are affected.
3. Domestic violence.
Battered women living in
poverty leaves a relationship
without funds.
4. Drug- and alcohol-relat-
ed problem.
5. Child support. Failure by
one parent to pay court
ordered financial support.
6. Low income. High cost
of housing while earning min-
imum wage.
7. Tragedy. Unable to func-
tion following tragedy,
decline in coping skills.
8. Depression. Mental
' instability.
9. Post traumatic stress dis-
ot order. War veterans and oth-
:ers who have had violent
encounters.
10. Down-sizing of compa-
ny job loss, no income.
Each of us knows someone


who has experienced or is
,experiencing one of the
above.
Following Sept. 11, 2001,
the economy plummeted and
many were forced to down-
size. Businesses went belly
up.Families became frag-
mented.
Homelessness has
no boundary, is no respecter
of person. Class, race or spir-
ituality does not prevent
homelessness.

lessness and the contributing

mode in effect
Editor:
Having succeeded in hav-
ing the Legislature go into the
reinsurance business on their
behest, the homeowners,
again in their "chicken little"
mode of the sky is falling, are
seeking extraordinary relief
from their ad valorum proper-
ty taxes. True to form, our
legislators are considering
abolishing, yes abolishing,
real property taxes and
increasing the state sales tax
by 2.5 percent. Talk about
throwing out the baby with'
the bath water.
Firstly, the contention that
the large increases in proper-
ty values of late have necessi-
tated increases in property tax
is completely false. The fact
that appraisals have sky rock-
eted does not, repeat not,
mandate nor automatically
cause an increase in taxes.
This may come as a shock
to some of you but Florida
law requires the county com-
missioners to determine the
amount of money needed for
all county purposes (except
school purposes) and commu-


nicate this information to the
county property appraiser.
The ultimate rate of taxation
is determined by applying
this data to the available
assessments to arrive at the
millage to be assessed. It is a
complete red herring to sug-
gest that taxes must go up
because property values have
risen; in fact, the opposite is
true.
What is actually happening
is commissions and school
boards all across the state are
viewing this increase in
assessments as a target of
opportunity and are funding
marginal projects and even
setting aside slush funds so as
to drive up the cost of gov-
ernment and as a conse-
quence the size of the budget
to be funded. What we need
to do is pay more attention to
the budgeting process at
county and school board lev-
els.
Further, to suggest that real
property taxes, one of the
oldest sources of revenue for
local government, should
now be abandoned in favor of
higher sales taxes in simply a
shifting of the tax burden to
those in the population who
can least afford it, rather than


on the local property owners
where it belongs.
Raising the sales tax by 2.5
percent is both a soak the
working class tax increase
and is bad for business. It
would make Florida sales tax
the highest in the nation and
would impact most heavily
on those least able to afford
it. Mr. Rubio's bland denial
that it would not hurt the poor
is rubbish. Moreover it will
drive many transactions to
the Internet where out-of-
state merchants will profit at
the expense of our local
economies.

Questions lead

to disbelief
Editor:
The Discovery Channel
just aired a program called
the lost tomb of Jesus. The
archaeologists claim they
have evidence of the remains
of Jesus being buried in his
family's burial place. They
went on to show how the rock
coffins clearly indicated in
writing that this was Jesus
and most of his relatives.
I decided to analyze this as


just a common person using
known facts and a little com-
mon sense. All I could come
up with is a lot of questions
for these investigative schol-
ars.
1. If this was true, then
why did the disciples of Jesus
go off and preach the New
Testament that hinges on the
belief of an empty tomb? The
disciples would know he was
not the Son of God and they
would most likely be killed
and crucified for preaching
his deity. Of course, death to
these very religious disciples
would be the least of their
problem. They 'would have
knowingly broke the first
commandment of worship-
ping a false God. Why would
they do this?
2. The next very elemen-
tary question is why did it
take 2,000 years to find this
clearly marked grave? The
many persecutors of
Christians 2,000 years ago
should have found this tomb
and would have celebrated
their find. According to the
archaeologists, the' tomb was
easy to find and clearly
marked. They even relocated

the tomb after the area was
built upon.
3. The archaeologists
indicted that the Jewish
Rabbis played a role in how
the tombs were constructed at
that time. The Rabbis would
insist a pipe be placed down
to the tomb so the dead spirits
could leave. This is how they
found the tombs again so eas-
ily.
So how did this extremely
important tomb following all
of Jewish tradition escape the
Rabbis' attention of being
that of Jesus, the Son of God,
who was sent to death by the
Jewish leadership of that
time? It just doesn't make
sense! What does make sense
is these hopefully well mean-
ing archaeologists have been
set up for a hoax? It certainly
would not be the first time
mankind betrayed God.
In the final analysis, it is
obvious the important ques-
tions have not been answered
and never will unless you
have faith.

Remembering

war as a child
Editor:
I am 78 years old and have
lived through five wars,
counting this one going on
now.
I remember the second
world war food rationing,
shortages of lots of things,
patriotic songs and my three
older brothers in the Army
and Navy. I was the only kid
left at home. I also remember
wondering if it would ever be


over and I'd see my brothers
again.
It did and all three of them
came home, safe and not
wounded, but it was so hard
not to cry about them. War is
hard on children and I got the
idea of telling how they feel
in war time. The words start-
ed coming and I wrote them
down as they came, in 25
minutes. Seems like someone
is giving me all the words and
I just copy them on paper.

A child's war
Mom will you tell me why
my dad just went away?
I miss him and try not to
cry but it gets harder each
day.
A friend told me he went to
war and might not come back.
He went to a place so far
It is called Iraq.

I just don't understand why
he left me and you alone.
He hugged you and called


me a little man, said he'd call
us on the phone.
"What if he doesn't ever
come back, will I get a new
dad?"
I asked my friend Jack.
This awful war makes me
so mad.

America always has to
fight when being friends is so
much better.
We always put everything
right. I hope you don't get a
bad letter, like my friend
Eddy got.
It said his father was dead.
He died in a battle he
fought and Eddy cried when
the letter was read.

Will this war end anytime
soon and bring back my
daddy to us?
If it does, I'll sing him a
tune and make an awful fuss.
Maybe this will be the last
war and we will be a family
again.
I miss him more and more
He is our soldier man.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Saving time
Imagine if we could liter-
ally save time like a bank
account filled with time
instead of cash. Believe me,
I wish I had such an account
to draw on.
Not too long ago I realized
I had been over-extending
myself repeatedly to the
point of exhaustion men-
tally and physically.
I re-evaluated my deci-
sions, commitments and
responsibilities and saw how
I had been adding obliga-
tions without subtracting
anything else. It was as if I
thought I had a hidden stash
of hours to draw
upon. However, running on
adrenaline for months even-
tually caught up with me.
Early one morning as I
"drove" the grocery cart
around the store at a hyped
up speed, I caught myself.
The store was empty. No one
was pressuring me to com-
plete my shopping in record
time. Yet, my current method
of operation had subcon-
sciously kicked in even at a
time when I could have cho-
sen a slower'pace.
I thought about the years
our boys were still at home.
- Leisurely grocery shopping
in the early morning hours
with my list in hand had
been a pleasant duty. A time
to think of my family and the
meals and treats I'd prepare
for them.
At this recollection, I
immediately "braked." How
nice it felt to walk at a nor-
mal pace and think more
slowly instead of racing
physically and mentally.
Then, I made some neces-
sary decisions so I could get
back to a normal, healthier
pace. That turning point
required me to deliberately
reset my body clock and
remind myself to "slow
down" or "relax" if I felt
myself shifting into high
gear again.
Daylight Saving Time
begins today. With this little
trick of springing ahead with
our clocks by one hour, we
feel like we've gained a
longer day. But, beware.
We've only exchanged an
hour of darkness for one of
daylight at the end of the
day.
We still only have 24
hours and its usually recom-
mended that we get eight
hours of sleep. I, for one,
need those eight hours with
some relaxation prior to bed-
time.
God ordained that the time
we are given in a day is
enough. Activity is impor-
tant, but so is rest.
SIn Ecclesiastes.3: 1, 11
and 13, NIV, we are told,
"There is a time for every-
thing, and a season for every
activity under heaven ... he
has made everything beauti-
ful in its time ... that every-
one may eat and drink, and
find satisfaction in all his
toil this is the gift of
God."
I'm thankful that the Lord
stopped me in my tracks and
slowed me down. I want to
know satisfaction and enjoy
his gift appropriately.
"saving" time by using it
wisely for his glory. Selah

Efl lERS' UEL16HT



The Battle Zone in Avon Park a haven for gamers of all kinds


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK
E d Baldridge went from
playing football in high
school to owning a gaming
store. His reputation as a
"gamer" is such that he recently
served as the concierge at MegaCon,
the third largest gaming convention
in the country.
More than 25,000 attendees were
at the Orlando Convention Center
for the event.
"I scheduled 104 events over four
days. Every age range was represent-
ed: There were 5- to 6-year-olds
playing Pokemon, 60- to 70-year-
olds playing Shroud of Ancients, and
the entire Jacksonville garrison came
for Civil War Gaming. Conventions
are great," Baldridge said.
The big thrill of the convention is
meeting the inventors of the games
and seeing the newest games ...
some of which haven't been market-
ed yet.
"Five times a year there are con-
ferences. We laugh all weekend.
There is such camaraderie,"
Baldridge said.
Baldridge graduated from Avon
Park in 1985. After college in
Kansas, he and his wife Beth opened
a computer store there, which grew
into eight outlets and a gaming store
with more than 18,000 customers.
They finally sold out, retired and
moved back to Avon Park three-
years ago.
The one thing the whole family -
including daughter Amy, 17, and son
Brandon, 14 missed was the gam-
ing store. So last year they opened
The Battle Zone, a 15,000-square-
foot space to play. They are dedicat-
ed to offering the best historical, sci-
ence fiction, fantasy, board and role
playing games.
"Our store is family run, and our

goal was to provide a safe, fun
atmosphere for kids of all ages.
There is no electronic gaming here.
Our ingredients are fair play, sports-
manship, math and problem solv-
ing," Baldridge said. On Saturday
mornings, usually 40 kids congre-
gate with the older helping the
younger. It's also a great father-son
atmosphere for sharing," Baldridge
said.
There are a multi-
tude of tables for all
types of gamers: You
can find a large variety
of card games like
Lunch Money or World
of Warcraft. Also
offered are chess,
checkers or terrain
tables holding cowboy
and Indian miniatures,
Warmachine, Mech
Warriors, Star Wars
Minis, d & d minis,
Yu-Gi-Oh, or Magic
Sanctioned Play. At
The Battle Zone are
ARPENTER books, more than 500
gaming at choices for dice, cards,
miniatures, paints, and


other supplies. They'll special order
anything you can't find in stock.
"There are,rules for every game,
and some are quite complicated.
Eighty percent of our customers are
male. It's fun to be a General. Some
people even dress in costume. There
are tanks and micro armor. People
pit their experience, knowledge and
ability. There's lots of brain work
required," Baldridge said.
Gaming appeals to a variety of
people: doctors, lawyers, judges,
police. Mick Chaika is ex-Army. He
says, "You have to plan a strategy,


and expect counter moves, always
planning your best advantage. The
Axis and Allies and Civil War games,
have historical significance, in addi-
tion to problem solving and math.
It's a lot of fun,"
The Battle Zone is located at 17
W. Main Str. in Avon Park. Call
453-9663; e-mail gameon@thebattle-
zoneonline.com or go to www.the-
battlezoneonline.com. Store hours
are Tuesday through Thursday from
3 p.m. to 9 p.m., Friday noon to 10

Canker, greening two most serious citrus diseases


By ED AYEN
Master Gardener
s. There are two
serious diseases
infecting citrus in
j south central
Florida, one has
I Been around

canker and the
other is new to
throwing he area and is
Season called citrus
Highlands County greening.
Master Gardners Citrus canker
is caused by a
bacterium and
symptoms on leaves include small,
round, raised blister-like lesions with
water-soaked margins and yellow
halos. The lesions often appear on
both sides of leaf surface.
Raised lesions on fruit (oranges &
grapefruit) create a water-soaked
margin with yellow halos.
Eventually, leaf drop occurs. Similar
lesions appear on twigs and stems


and lesions on stems cause re-occur-
ring infection.
Citrus canker is highly contagious
to other citrus trees and natural
spread is by wind-driven rain,
overhead irrigation,
flooding, incidental
spread by insects and
birds and animals.
Human transport
of infected plant
material is a pri-
mary means of
spreading the
canker pathogen
over long distances.
There is no cure for
citrus canker, so when
it occurs eradication is
the only option. Citrus
Citrus greening is a
serious bacterial disease
of citrus because it affects all citrus
cultivars and causes rapid decline of
trees. The disease is spread by the
psyllid insect in Florida where
weather conditions are suitable for
its occurrence.


C


Early symptoms of greening are a
leaf yellowing that may appear on a
single shoot or branch. In early
stages of infection, leaves may have
a mottled or blotchy appear-
ance. The yellowing
spreads throughout the
tree and affected trees
show twig dieback
and trees rapidly
degenerate into a
non-productive

Three years.
In trees with
advanced stages of
the disease, the
leaves are small and
frequently show mineral
anker (zinc or manganese) defi-
ciency symptoms with yel-
low veining. Fruit are
sparse, small, abnormal in appear-
ance and fail to color properly, thus
the name greening. The affected fruit
often contain aborted seeds and have
poor juice quality.
Removal of infected trees is the


only way to ensure that they will not:
serve as a source of the bacteria for
the psyllid insects' acquisition and
subsequent transmission.
If you want to learn more about
citrus greening, a seminar will be
held from 9-11 a.m. on Tuesday at
the Highlands County Agri-Civic
Center.
For more information on diagnos-
ing and control of these problems
please, contact the Master Gardener
office.
We will also have information
tables available at the upcoming
Spring Plant Sale from 8 a.m. to 2.i
p.m. Friday and Saturday at the
Highlands County Agri-Civic Center
Auditorium.
In my next article, we will look at
the nutritional needs of citrus.

Copyrigl

SEBRING The
Highlands Art League, in
developing its "Village" con-
cept, is earnest about filling
the ,needs of serious
artists. The night of March 2
was an evening not to be
missed by any artist interested
in selling their work today.
Guest speaker at the
"Marketing You and Your
Art" class of HAL artist
Kathleen Morgan was Robert
R. Hussey II, a patent, trade-
mark and copyright attorney
with over 35 years experi-
ence.
Hussey's warm and light-
hearted demeanor brought an
otherwise cold and frighten-
ing subject, Copyright Law
and Your Artwork, into light
and clarity for the dozen
artists present. First, develop-
ing a basic understanding of
the difference between
patents, trademarks and copy-
rights, he then took these
eager-to-learn artists into the


it attorn

greater depth of the principles
of copyright law, including
ownership, notices, rights,
and even digital
copyright (and more) and how
these things affect themselves
and their work.
His ease and knowledge
with a difficult subject matter
made the question and
answer portion of the evening
delightful as well as highly
instructive. "Wow, that was
really helpful!" was the com-
mon exclamation of the stu-
dents as they enjoyed discus-
sion and a pot-luck dinner
together afterward.
The repeated success of
Morgan's art marketing class
is partially due to this kind of
wealthy contest. Anne
Watson, a HAL artist whose
work is commissioned for
both commercial and personal
use, emphasizes the impor-
tance for every artist who
wishes to sell their work to
develop the attitude and

Getting ready


Courtesy photo
The Highlands County Community Band is so huge that a microphone is needed for
the director, Vic Anderson, to communicate with his 'band members.' The band is
preparing for the next concert, which is on March 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the popular
Fine Arts Auditorium in South Florida Community College's Avon Park Campus.
There is no 'snow date' in the works. Call Vic at 655-3731 for information.



Bok Singing Tower



becomes a vertical stage


LAKE WALES The
majestic 205-foot marble and
coquina Singing Tower at
Historic Bok Sanctuary will
become a vertical stage when
Project Bandaloop, an aerial
dance troupe from Oakland,
Calif., performs high above
the audience Friday and
Saturday at 8 p.m.
During their first public
appearances in Florida,
Project Bandaloop's choreo-
graphed flips, twirls and spins
as well as carillon music will
mesmerize the audience dur-
ing two shows only. Ticket
prices are $20-50, based on
row seating.
"Combining the beauty of
the setting, aerial dance and
carillon music will offer an
unprecedented cultural event
in central Florida," remarks
Robert P. Sullivan, Sanctuary
president. "Project Bandaloop
is widely recognized as one of
the leading-aerial and vertical
dance companies in the
world."
Project Bandaloop's per-
formance will be choreo-


graphed specifically for the
site to explore the relationship
between movement and gravi-
ty to stimulate the viewers'
awareness of the dancers, the
architectural masterpiece and
the natural environment.
Lighting and sound will
enhance the drama of the
evening performance.
Amelia Rudolph is founder
and artistic director of Project
Bandaloop, a name derived
from the word "Project,"
which suggests something
continuously developing and
changing, and the word
"Bandaloop," which is bor-
rowed from a Tom Robbins
novel. Under Rudolph's
direction, the aerial dancers
create a stunning synergistic
blend of dance, sport, ritual
and environmental awareness.
As they perform, pairs of
dancers are linked by a single
rope that runs from one
dancer up to an anchor point
and down to-the other dancer.
Project Bandaloop has per-
formed in such well-known
venues around the world as


the John F. Kennedy Center
for the Performing Arts, New
York Stock Exchange, Times
Square, San Francisco
Airport, El Capitan at
Yosemite National Park,
Seattle Space Needle, de
Gamma Tower in Portugal
and most recently, the
National Museum of
Singapore.
Seating is limited to 2,100
per performance and will be

And Another
Thing ...
Dan Hoehne

Injuries, alibis

sometimes work

of comic genius
I'm not sure which is fun-
nier, the excuses professional
athletes come up with for
failed drug tests, or the actual
injuries that befall these great-
ly honed specimens of physi-
cal prowess.
Cyclist Floyd Landis blam-
ing an unnaturally high testos-
terone level on a night of
boozing it up wait, isn't
there a high level of faux
testosterone in drunken males?
But suggesting that Jack
Daniels and beer helped him
do extraordinarily well in a
bicycle race the next day is
akin to saying you watched a
Three Stooges marathon last
night, therefore helping you
ace your final exam in
Shakespearean literature.
Pretty funny stuff, though
not quite as weirdly funny as
what happened to Manchester
Unite goalkeeper Alex
Stepney.
Trying to get his defense-
men pumped up during a
match, he screamed with such
effort that he dislocated his
jaw.
Of course, there is Rafael
Palmeiro, who offered up as
possible reasons for him test-
ing positive for steroids as
some tainted B-12 or, perhaps,
he inadvertently sat on a nee-
dled syringe of steroids.
He may have sat on a nee-
dle? Isn't that something you'd
know at the time it happened?
I sit on a needle, I know
about it, loudly.
Then again, former major
league baseball player Brett
Barbarie was making nachos
one night, rife with all the
spicy trimmings.
But without having washed
his hands after putting the
fiery concoction together, he
decided to put his contacts in.
I'm sure he knew his mis-
take pretty quickly, and loudly,
as his eyeball started to sizzle.
World-class sprinter Justin
Gatlin's running coach, Trevor
Graham, said Gatlin's positive
drug test had to be the result of
getting a massage, an excuse
so ridiculously funny that even
Gatlin himself wasn't buying
it.
Atlanta Braves pitcher John
Smoltz once burned himself
while ironing his clothes -
while he was wearing them.
Is anyone buying that some-
body could be that dumb?
Barry Bonds says he
thought he was taking flax-
seed oil, which makes you
wonder how big flax seeds
are?
Finally, there is baseball
great Wade Boggs, who kind
of fits in both these categories.
While trying to get his cow-
boy boots on for a night out,
he lost his balance and fell into
a couch.
Seems innocent enough, as
I'm sure many of us have fall-
en while trying to put on a
piece of clothing.
But Boggs ended up miss-
ing a week of the season.
How uncomfortable of a
couch did he own?
And even if he was hurt
from that, make up a better
excuse.
Which only goes to show,
when it comes to professional
athletes, the facts are often as
funny as what they make up.

AVON PARK Any coach will tell
you that good defense is a key to win-
ning.
Recent scores for the Avon Park base-
ball team a 13-7 loss to Braden River
Tuesday and a 19-9 win over Lake Placid
Thursday might indicate that the Red
D. ..' .\ e a ways to go.in that regard.
But as any coach will also tell you,
luck has a lot to do with it, and the sea-
son-long string of bad luck was reversed
in the Devils' 5-2 win over visiting
Palmetto Friday night.
"We've been pretty solid defensively
all year," head coach Mort Jackson said.


"But it just seemed that whenever we
would walk a guy, or let a guy get on
with an error, they were going to come
around to score."
Avon Park That trend seemed like
it was going to play out
again when, after two
Uneventful innings,
Palmetto Palmetto's Derek White
reached second on a two-
base error. A dropped
third strike on Tyler
Redmond got the out at
first, but moved White to third with two
outs.
But after walking Charlie McCartney,
Avon Parks' Chance Hunter made a nice


running catch of a fly to right to end the
inning.
"That's the first time ... that someone
got on by our error and they didn't
score," Jackson said.
The bad-luck trend showed up again in
the fourth when, after a Jake Cavey sin-
gle, Devil southpaw Johnny Sedlock
attempted a pick-off play at first. The
ball got away, moving the Cavey all the
way around to third, from where he soon
scored on an RBI single to right by John
Quick.
Further damage was avoided, howev-
er, as Sedlock retired the next two hitters

select


head


coach

Tap Fort Meade's Grant
to replace Maddox
By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID The
Green Dragons the successor
for Shaw Maddox Friday
afternoon, choosing Fort
Meade assistant Tim Grant to
be the new head coach for
Lake Placid.
The 45-year-old Grant has
been an assistant for the
Miners for the last four years,
helping guide the program to
a district title in each of those
years and
three trips to
the state
championship
game, win-
ning the 2004
crown.
"I'm excit-
ed. It's a good Grant
move for our
family, and I jumped at the
chance," Grant said
Maddox coached the
Dragons for three years and;
had a 6-24 record, which was
an improvement considering
the Dragons were in the midst
of a 24-game losing streak
when he took over. The
Dragons were 3-7 last season.
Grant coached in New York
and South Carolina before
coming to Florida. He was
chosen for the Lake Placid
job from among 30 applicants
for the job.
Lake Placid Principal Ruth
Heckman said the Grant's
impressive record and refer-
ences and his knowledge of
football set him apart from
the other applicants.
Hardee selects former
Red Devil Tim Price
In other area coaching
news, 1988 Avon Park High
School graduate Tim Price
was named the head coach at
Hardee on Wednesday.
Price, who was on Avon
Park's undefeated state cham-
pionship team in 1987, was
an assistant at Okeechobee,
Frostproof, Avon Park and for
two years at Hardee before
moving to Georgia to be an
assistant for the storied
Thomasville program.
He replaces Derren Bryan,
who resigned in January after
guiding the Wildcats to a 69-
12 record in seven seasons.
The Wildcats were 11-2
last season, falling to Bartow
in the regional finals in the
fourth overtime

SEBRING -As Race
Week arrives, eyes turn
toward not only competitors
in the 55th Annual Mobil 1 12
Hours of Sebring, but also to
the support races that keep
excitement on the track
almost from the time the gates
open to the time the final
checkered flag drops.
One of the staples of the
Sebring experience is the
popular SPEED World
Challenge (SWC) Races.


There are two divisions GT
and Touring Cars designed
to provide drivers, teams,
manufacturers and after-mar-
ket suppliers with a competi-
tive, production-based series
to prove themselves and their
products.
From their now-trademark
standing starts, the 50-minute
sprints have become a
favorite of fans, as much for
the fender-banging racing as
for the fact that people can
quickly identify the competi-
tors and relate the vehicles on


the track to the cars they see
on the highways every day.
The SWC series is an evo-
lution of the showroom stock
series created in 1972 by the
Sports Car Club of America
for street-legal automobiles.
Now, 35 years later, there are
more than 50 cars in the two
divisions are getting ready tow
try their luck on the storied
3.72-mile circuit at the'
Sebring International
Raceway.

HISTORY LESSON


5 YEARS AGO
March 12, 2002: Avon Park handed the Lady Blue Streaks their first loss of the softball season.The
ninth-ranked Lady Devils capitalized on four Sebring errors and the strong pitching of Allison Kelly to
top the 14th-ranked Streaks.
30 YEARS AGO
March 12, 1977: Sebring sent 11 batters to the plate in the sixth inning, scoring six runs on its way
to a 7-1 win over Haines City. Included in that inning was a bases loaded ground ball to the Haines City
pitcher by Blue Streak Robert Freeland.Two errant throws later, all four runs had come across the plate
on the grand slam ground ball.

Low water levels putting a crimp on both bass and speck fishing


According to reports I have
gotten from local bass fisher-
men and those fellows who
travel to our area from the
northern climes, the bass
fishing has been very disap-
pointing. A few fish in the 5-
to 7-pound range have been
caught from Lake Istokpoga
and no great numbers of
specks have turned up in
live-wells of crappie fisher-
men.
The weather of the past
few weeks has nearly deci-
mated the usual fishing pat-
terns expected at this time of
year.
Ordinarily, several large
10-pound-plus bass would
have been reported and limits


of specks would be the norm.
Maybe there are other forces
at work here other than the
cold fronts we have been
experiencing.
Our lack of rain and the
present drought conditions
have drawn lake levels below
what is natural for this time
of year in Highlands County.
From just north of Sebring to
a few miles south of U.S. 98,
very little rain has fallen late-
ly, leaving lakes Jackson and
Istokpoga below normal.
Lakes in and around Lake
Placid are in far better shape
as are lakes in the Polk
County area when compared
to lakes Jackson or
Istokpoga. The milfoil


and hydrilla in
Istokpoga is
more than just
a nuisance. In
some of the
areas favored r
by bass
anglers, it is
so thick fish-
ing is nearly
impossible.
Some fisher- Ou
men tell me
they can't get Writ
into their
usual haunts and if they
could it would be next to
impossible to pull a catch
through the weedy mess.
All I can say is, hang in
there fellows, better days are


td
her's


a-comin' -
maybe.
Now for a
little good
news. All of
"!you fellows
who have
been chomp-
ing at the bit
to get out
and stomp
Ioors around in the
brush, here's
s Name your chance.
The spring.
wild turkey season is upon
us.
In the area north of State
Road 70 and all the way to
Leon and Wakulla counties in
the Panhandle, the season


opens Saturday and runs
through March 22. South of
S.R. 70, the season runs
through April 8.
The Arbuckle Wildlife
Management Area covers
13,531 acres. There are 10,
no-cost daily quota permits
available at the check station
on a first-come, first-served
basis. You can call (863) 635-
7801 for information.
The Kissimmee River
Public Use Area covers an
enormous amount of hunting
grounds in eastern Highlands
County along the Kissimmee
river. Call the South Florida
Water Management District
(800) 250-4200 ext. 3019 for
information. A management


area permit is required.
Don't forget your hunting
license.
Florida is the home of the
beautiful Osceola turkey.
This turkey is distinguished
from the eastern species by
its darker wing feathers.The
white bars on the primary
wing feathers are narrower
than the black bars and are
irregular or broken.
If you have any questions
about this Spring Turkey
Hunt, call the FWC at (850)
488-4676. Here's wishing
you a successful hunt.

Senior Softball



Luby's gets surprising victory


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Thursday's
Sebring Senior Softball
League games had at least one
surprise ending as Luby's
pulled themselves up by the
bootstraps and overtook
Miller's Central Air for a 20-
16 win in Lake Placid.
The score was tied going
into the eighth inning when
Luby's scored four runs and
Miller's could not make a
comeback.
For Luby's, Harold Dinel
hit a homer, Bobby Silvia hit
a triple, a double and scored
five runs and Marvin Strope
slugged three hits. Miller's
top hitters with four hits each
were Art Carney (including a
home run) and Tom Walsh.
At Lincoln Heights, the
Rebels overtook Discount
Aluminum by a final score of
22-9. Tony Caristo hit a home
run and a double for the
Rebels, while Diz Jones and
Glen Moore each went 4-for-
4.
Going 3-for-4 were Jack
'Grosso, Stan Turl and Fred
_ Boyd. Pitcher Rollie Carlson
'was 3-for-4 and literally again
hobbled on his injured leg to
score his home run.
Discount Aluminum's Jim
Larnard walloped three hits
including a home run, while
Ken Crandall and Bob Iott
each contributed three hits.
A heartfelt "thank you" is
extended from Discount
Aluminum to the Rebels for
loaning them several players.


Their cooperation and sports-
manship was greatly appreci-
ated and that is what made it
an enjoyable game.
After their eight-game win-
ning streak, the Silent
Salesman's bats were snapped
into the deep-freeze by Royal
Palms in a 17-4 loss at
DeSoto City.
Royal Palms' Bob Floodine
homered and Bob Fox was
credited with four hits.
Getting three hits each were
Bob Weiss, Charlie'Quinn and
Ross Anderson, who also hit a
double.
On Tuesday, the pressure
was on in Lake Placid when
the two teams contending for
top rung on the league stand-
ings ladder faced each other.
Royal Palms and Millers
Central Air were tied in the
bottom of the eighth inning
with two outs when Doran
Quigg's last at bat for Royal
Palms was a payoff hit, driv-
ing in the winning run for the
final score of 16-15.
Bob Fox hit two doubles,
Bob Weiss and Jim Longman
each had one double for
Royal Palms. Victor
Rodriquez hit a home run for
Miller's
The Silent Salesman won
their eighth straight with a
final score of 25-10 over
Discount Aluminum at
Lincoln Heights. Scoring only
by fives five runs in five
innings the Salesman had a
field day, banging out 32 hits.
Leading the attack were


Don Cunningham with two
triples and Ken Filppula with
one triple. Carl Brosius and
Jerry Johnston had two dou-
bles each and Leo Lupps had
one double. Bob Flack pound-
ed out four singles and every-
one in the lineup had at least
two hits, excluding one batter.
Les Smith had a double
with three RBIs and Bob Iotts
hit a double. Paul Stevenson
went 4-for-4 scoring two runs,
along with Mike Ellis' three
hits and two runs for
Discount.
At DeSoto City, Luby's and
the Rebels duked it out into
the eighth inning when
Luby's took off with five
runs. The Rebels retaliated
with three runs, but not
enough to overcome Luby's
with the final score being 12-
8. The Rebels defense also
executed three double plays in
the game and Serge Paieto
was credited with two hits and
five RBIs.
Serge Paieta hit a double
and was also responsible for
five RBIs for Luby's, whose
defense also executed three
double plays in the game.

Highlands Co. league
Highlands Ridge squeaked
by AmVets 14-13, but AmVets
took a 21-16 wehn the two
teams met again in a makeup
game the same day, scoring
five runs in the eighth inning
to break the game open.
Jim Guild, Steve Pepsich
and Warren Watson had three

hits each for AmVets in the
second game, while Doug
Ebeling, Brian Gilles, Joe
Healey and Jim Szelagowski
each had three hits for
Highlands Ridge.
Bill Helbig was 4-for-4
with a home run for
Highlands Ridge in their win,
while Gary Luciano had four
hits for AmVets and Watson,
Pepish and Torres each had
three hits.
Lake Wales edged KFC 16-
14 in Thursday's other game.
In Tuesday's action,
Reflections beat AmVets 10-3
behind winning pitcher Dan
Webb and four hits each from
Ron Rieches and Ron Lewis
and a home run from Jim
Holmes. Luciano was 4-for-4
with a homer for AmVets and
Chuck Detore had three hits.
Highlands Ridge exploded
for a huge win over Lake
Wales in Tuesday's other
game, winning 40-21. Ralph
Mete had two homers among
his five hits, while Jim
Szelagowski and Joe Healey
both had six hits for
Highlands Ridge.

Palmetto shortstop Derek White tags out Chavious Gordon of Avon Park Friday night.


DEVILS
Continued from ID
on a pop-out to short and a strikeout.
Now it was time for the Avon Park offense to
continue its trend of steady and advantageous
contributions.
Kyle Jackson led off the bottom of the fourth
with a double to the left-center field wall and
moved to third one out later when Dillan Runner
reached on a Tiger error. Chavious Gordon
walked to load the bases and Chad Wright's
chopper to second was hit just slowly enough to
avoid a double play, with Jackson scoring.
Corey Topa then beat out an infield hit, scoring
Runner before Sedlock shot one through the left


side to bring Gordon home for a 3-1 Red Devil
lead.
Palmetto answered with a run in the fifth when
White walked, but Avon Park got that run right
back when Jackson singled, moved to third on
Luke Sedlock's infield hit and a throwing error
and came across the plate on a wild pitch.
Johnny Sedlock set the side down in order in
the sixth and helped pad his own lead with a lead-
off single, reaching third on Hunter's sacrifice
bunt and a Tiger error and scoring on Matt
Devlin's single.
"It's a work in progress and we're just trying to
get better game by game," Jackson said. "As we
tell the kids, it's a marathon and not a sprint.
We're getting there."
With a solid defense and a little bit of luck.


STREAKS
Continued from ID
down the middle that went
over the right field wall for a
three-run homer to raise the
DeSoto lead to 4-0.
Abeln, who was not able to
feel his fingers after the
injury to his elbow, got
redemption when he mur-
dered a pitch over the center-
field wall. The home run
brought both Tomlinson
(fielder's choice) and Ryan
Thorlton (error) in to score
and narrowed the lead to 4-3.
In the top of the fifth, the
Bulldogs came back when
Robert Fussell singled to
drive in Morales and Heine
doubled and later scored on a
balk to raise the lead to 6-3.
Sebring came back with
another trio of runs in the bot-
tom of the fifth. Tomlinson
coaxed a walk and Thorlton
followed with a single to set
the pace.


Abeln, who was 2-for-3,
drove in Tomlinson with a
solid single to right center.
Thorlton scored on a wild
pitch and Abeln dashed home
on Nick Maloyed's second
single of the game to tie the
game at six.
Maloyed celebrated his
18th Birthday with a pair of
key base hits.
Steven Fortner bailed
Sebring out of a jam at the top
of the fifth, throwing out a
batter to retire the side.
Fortner pitched 2'/ scoreless
innings to get the winning
relief. The right-hander struck
out three, walked three and
only allowed one hit.
Morales picked up the loss
for the Bulldogs, going five
innings before being lifted for
Day, who gave up eight runs
on seven hits.
Heine, the designated hit-
ter, led DeSoto offensively
with a pair of doubles and an
RBI single.

Closing

costs:

What's

negotiable?
The old adage that
knowledge is power is
especially true when it
comes to buying and
financing a home. Knowing
as much as you can about
your new community and
your new neighborhood is
important; so is researching
the right mortgage lender at
the right rate.
Once you've reached the
end point in your home-
buying process, however,
don't stop asking questions-
especially when it comes to
closing costs. The better
informed you are about
these fees, the better oppor-
tunity you will have to
reduce them or eliminate
the fees altogether.
Typical closing costs
average around five percent
of your loan amount, so the
total costs can run into the
thousands of dollars for a
median-priced home in
Florida-certainly not small
change.
The law helps consumers
gain a good deal of knowl-
edge about closing costs:
Lenders are required to
itemize all the services per-

Edwards, Hoy take big honors at ai. ual awards banquet


By CAROL HEAUSLER
Lake Placid Board ofRealtors
As they would say in South
Louisiana, "Mais chere, they
done pass a good time, yeah."
Here in Lake Placid we would
say, "And we all had a good
time! Where? When? Why? I
thought you would never ask!"
The Lake Placid Board of
Realtors held its annual Awards
Banquet on Feb. 10 at the Elks
Club in Lake Placid. The Elks
did a wonderful job assisting
with the preparations (thanks to
Don Sansoussi and his all-vol-
unteer staff) and the food was
dee-li-cious! Thanks to the
Realtors on the decorating crew,
the Elks Club was transformed
into a beautiful soft-lit scene of
hearts and roses depicting our
"Sweetheart" theme.
Realtor Julie Temple opened
the evening with a magnificent
rendition of "America the
Beautiful" and the MC-2000
chorus was hysterically on-key
with their version "A Few of
My Favorite Things,"
Master of Ceremonies Don


Elwell, general manager of
Kenilworth Lodge, was the per-
fect choice. He kept us laughing
while he kept things moving

Bonsera joins Century 21 Advanced All Service Realty I


SEBRING As a new agent, Barbara
Bonsera will be capitalizing on her skills
and experience as a previous business
owner to promote her real estate career.
After moving to the Fort Lauderdale area
from New York with her husband and two
children in 1977, Bonsera joined the School

keeper. Seventeen years later, with their
children grown, she and her husband decid-


ed to leave the hectic lifestyle of south
Florida to relocate to beautiful Highlands
County where they settled in Lake Placid.
It was at that time Bonsera decided to
turn her hobby into a business and opened
Ceramic Accents on Main Street in Lake
Placid. Since moving to Sebring two years
ago to be closer to conveniences and golf
courses, she has taken advantage of this
time and opportunity to pursue her real


estate career.
Bonsera has comply ted ime Otterman
School of Real Estate and an extensive
training program with Century 21. She is
looking forward to servicing real estate
needs in Highlands County with a focus on
the Harder Hall area.
If you know anyone interested in buying
or selling a home in the area, you can give
Bonsera a call at (863) 441-0168. Barbara Bnsera

formed, from the credit report
to title insurance. Prospective
homeowners must be provided
with this good faith estimate
(GFE) within three days of
submitting a mortgage loan
application; the law also
requires that this document be
as accurate an estimate as pos-
sible.
Buyers will encounter three
categories of costs at the clos-
ing table: Lender fees, third-
party fees and government
fees. Knowing which of these
fees is negotiable or can be
waived altogether will help
save consumers hundreds of
dollars at closing. And, involv-
ing your real estate attorney
before you sign a contract at
the beginning as well as at the
closing table offers homebuy-
ers additional protection
against excessive fees.
Government fees (non-
negotiable): Out-of-pocket
charges paid to the government
for such things are deed
recording and mortgage taxes.
Third-party fees (semi-
negotiable): These include
- charges the lender has to pay
to third parties for services,
such as appraisals and credit
reports, title searches and
insurance, flood certification,
termite and other inspections.
These fees are generally set in


Compton Realty was the No. 1
office in both number of units
sold as well as sales volume.
They have also retained the No.
1 spot for the last three years in
Lake Placid waterfront home
sales for number of units sold.

The agents at Century 21
Compton Realty have a remark-


stone since lenders can't con-
trol fees set by these service
providers. Be sure you are pay-
ing fair market prices for these
services, however, and ask
about the fees if you feel you
are being overcharged.
Lender fees (negotiable):
Charged by the lender to cover
various costs of closing, many
of these fees are negotiable or
may be completely waived by
request. These include charges
for application fees, document
preparation, loan origination
and loan processing fees, as
well as points, if applicable.
Because these fees don't
include out-of-pocket costs to
third parties, they can be elimi-
nated or reduced, depending on
the lender's motivation to get
your business.
To help reduce your overall
closing costs, consider the fol-
lowing:
Shop around. Compare
lenders' fees and charges from
a variety of lenders. Once you
have educated yourself on the
various costs of negotiable and
non-negotiable fees, you will
be more prepared to cut a bet-
ter deal on the closing costs-
instead of simply accepting the
costs that your lender propos-
es.
Check your credit: You'll
feel more confident in asking
for fee reductions or waivers
when your credit is strong. A
customer with perfect credit
who has been with the same


comers in their relocation, they
help long-time citizens discover
different or newly developing
areas in Highlands County.

luck in cutting closing costs
than those with less-than-per-
fect FICO scores and a history
of job-hopping.
Double check your esti-
mate: Be sure to bring your
good faith estimate sheet with
you to closing; compare the
final closing costs with the
GFE to check for unfamiliar or
excessive charges. If you have
any questions about the
charges on your GFE or final
closing costs, discuss them
with your real estate attorney.
