Stump turns

into art in

Avon Park
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
AVON PARK With a chain
saw, grinder and drill, Keith
Carroll converted a live Oak
stump into a 5-foot-tall
American bald eagle Friday.
The eagle, standing watch on
Memorial Drive from Lakeview
Memorial Gardens' front lawn,
is Carroll's- sixth carving at the
cemetery.
Unlike the others, which were.
hurricane-damaged trees, the
oak stump he cut and shaped for
about six hours Friday was
brought in for the express pur-
pose of becoming art.
"I used to have a bigger saw,"
Carroll said, as he took a break
from carving to swap chains. "It
blew up on a live oak.",
He uses the big saws 3 feet
long and 27-inch bars to
block out the sculpture, then he
employs a small chain saw, a
drill and sometimes a wood
burner to give his creatures
detail, depth and contrast.'
Most of his work is wildlife,
but he's done caricatures and
other pieces. For Memorial
Gardens, he's created five carv-,
ings on four trees a mother
eagle, her two eaglets (orn--one -'
tree), a heron and a bear.
"It's amazing what he can
do," said Rdss Critendon, man-
ager of the cemetery, as he
watched Carroll.
Carroll was an assistant pastor
at a church when he began help-
ing a friend who was a stump
carver. He eventually bought his
friend's business and was a full-
time carver for 16-17 years.
Now he's a realtor in Satellite
Beach. He takes sculpting jobs
when business is slow.
"It's definitely a buyer's mar-
ket," he said with a grin.

A faulty system


Opinions vary on potential end of


state's no-fault insurance policy


By MATT MURPHY
hilm olllrpil\ m' ( uni l '' l .
SEBRING The da) s of
no-fault automobile insurance
in Florida are numbered, bar-
ring a last-minute reprieve.
The no-fault era will end on
Oct. 1, unless the Legislature
takes action at its special ses-
sion which begins June 12.
Bills were proposed in both
chambers to reform the sys-
tem, but the Legislature could
not agree on a solution. The
Senate passed a bill that
would have extended the no-
fault law through 2012 while
also allocating extra funding,
for anti-fraud effort.
The House, however, ,
declined to take up the Senate
bill, and failed to pass a bill
of its own.
Florida's no-fault system
began Jan. 1, 1972, and was
designed as a way to quickly
compensate people for injuries
sustained in auto accidents.


'I have no idea
what the
,ramifications are.
It's going to be
interesting.'

MARK ANDREWS
Insurance Agent
Currently, drivers are required
to purchase $10,000 in per-
sonal injury protection, or PIP.
After an accident, the PIP
coverage pays 80 percent of
all expenses for medical serv-
ices deemed "medically neces-
sary.".'
But the phrase "medically
necessary" has been the
source of frustration for both
insurance companies and state
officials, as reports of fraud;
have rapidly increased over
the past few years.


PIP fraud reports have risen
over 40Q percent from 2002 to.
2005, while the number of
PIP-related arrests increased
by 74 percent during that
time, according to a 2005
Senate report.
PIP abuses have taken many
forms including staged car
crashes, manufactured crash
reports and claims of faked or
exaggerated injuries. PIP
fraud has cost Florida families
as much as $1,500 a year in
premium increases, then-Chief
Financial Officer Tom
Gallagher said in the report.
Auto insurance
rates would fall
Representatives from the
state's two largest auto insur-
ers say no-fault's demise is a
positive development.

County departments

asking for $3.33

million in new staff

But budget is in limbo until

state decides new tax plan
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING The county budget hearings are
the last three days in May, but nobody knows what
to expect until June, when the Florida Legislature
meets in special session.
Highlands County commission department
heads have submitted their personnel and budget
requests, which the Office of Management and
Budget is reviewing for accuracy and validity.
Each county department, head and the various
constitutional officers will present their requested
budgets at the 8:30 a.m. public hearings May 29-
31.
"No decisions will be made at this time," com-
mission chairman C. Guy Maxcy said Friday.
"Staff takes that and in the coming weeks put their
pencils to work in trying to come up with budgets
for the house plan, senate plan and governor's
plan."
After the Legislature determines the property
tax roll back plan, the county will likely schedule
an emergency workshop so staff can respond.
Maxcy said. department heads have been
instructed to consider where they'll cut if their
budgets decrease by 30 percent, as would happen
if Gov. Charlie Crist's plan is adopted.
"They have to be prepared to make that call
fairly quickly," Maxcy said.
Tim Mechling, budget manager, said budget
requests are the raw data that department heads
and directors use to inform county commissioners
what they need to run their departments "very

SEBRING The Florida
Legislature's decision to
move the Florida presiden-
tial primary up to Jan. 29 is
sure to have far-reaching
ramifications both inside
the state and out.
The top campaigns of both
parties are already spending
large amounts of money and
time in the state, in an effort
to curry favor with Florida
voters who will now be


fourth in line during the pri-
mary process. Florida's deci-
sions might even cause New
Hampshire to move its first-
in-the-nation primary to the
end of this year.
And locally, the move
makes Highlands County
Supervisor of Elections Joe
Campbell's job a little more
difficult.
"It will definitely have an
impact on us," Campbell
said about the January pri-
mary date. "The bad thing is,


'The bad thing
is, we'll be
working in the
holiday season.'

JOE CAMPBELL
Supervisor of Elections

we'll be working in the holi-
day season."
The earlier primary date
also might make finding and


training poll workers more
difficult. Typically, 250-300
poll workers are used
throughout the county for
both primary and general
presidential elections.
"We have to get them
trained, and a lot of them
will be off visiting children"
over the holidays, Campbell
said. "We might not be able
to get some we had before."
The measure that moved
up the state's primary
will also require optical


scan paper ballots at all
precincts, including ones
that used only touch-screen
machines during the 2006
elections. While that aspect
of the bill will force
Florida's larger counties to
make drastic changes,
Highlands County will not
be affected.
The county's elections
office decided to go to the
optical scan balloting system

LP Rotary helps with playground project


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID During
the course of this school year
a project has been undertaken
to build a universal play-
ground at Lake Placid
Elementary School. The goal
of the Lake Placid Elementary
Universal Playground Project
is to replace outdated equip-
ment with accessible, up-to-
date equipment.
As the community and
school have grown, so has the
population of students' with
disabilities. It is the goal of
this project to provide a safe
recreation area in which all
students have equal access to
activities, and a place where
children with disabilities may
play side by side with their
non-disabled peers.

Outreach project.


students, who have worked so
hard to raise money, have
done a great job. The PTO is
near the target goal, of a
$20,000 contribution toward
the $110,000 project cost.
Recently, their efforts got a.
tremendous boost from the
Lake Placid Noon Rotary
Club, which donated $15,000
toward the total project cost.
The check was pre',ented to-
principal Carole Disler and
John Varady, coordinator of
the playground project, at a
Noon Rotary luncheon. Wally


Cox, superintendent of
Highlands County schools,
along with school board
members, also presented a
thank you gift to the Noon
Rotary at a recent board meet-
ing.
It is the hope of all
involved that by the start of
next school year the students
will be playing on the new
pla\ ground If this dream is
realized, it. will definitely be
in part because of the gen-
erosity of the Lake Placid
Noon Rotary.


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Members of the
local law enforcement agencies
would like to invite the public
to the annual Police Memorial
service being held at the main
entrance to the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office at 9
a.m. Tuesday.
The event is to pay honor to
those officers killed in the line
of duty during 2006. Florida
Highway Patrol Sgt. Nick
Sottile, who was shot in
January, will be inducted into
the National Law Enforcement
Memorial in the May 2008 for
his death in 2007.
Nationwide, 146 officers
gave their lives in the line of
duty. The state of Florida had
nine officers killed. These offi-
cers' names .will also be hon-
ored on the same day in the
nation's capital at the site of the
National Police Memorial.
Here are a few facts about
American Law Enforcement
Officers:
1. There are more than
870,000 sworn law enforce-
ment officers now serving in
the United States, which is the
highest figure ever. About 12
percent of those are female.
2. In 2005, there were an esti-
mated 5.2 million violent
crimes committed in the United
States (according to the
National Crime Victimization
Survey conducted by the
Bureau of Justice Statistics).
The annual number of violent
crimes has declined by 58 per-
cent since 1993.
3. Crime fighting has taken
its toll. Since thethe first recorded
police death in 1792, there have
been more than 17,900 law
'enforcement officers killed in
the line of duty. Currently, there
are 17,912 names engraved on
the walls of the National Law
Enforcement Officers
Memorial.
4. A total of 1,649 law
enforcement officers died in the
line of duty during the past 10
years, an average of one death
every 53 hours or 165 per year.
There were 145 law enforce-
ment officers killed in 2006.
5. On average, more than


56,000 law enforcement offi-
cers are assaulted each year,
resulting in over 16,000
injuries.
6. The 1970s were the dead-
liest decade in law enforcement
history, when a total of 2,275
officers died, or an average of
275 each year. The deadliest
year in law enforcement history
was 1930, when 279 officers
were killed. That figure
dropped dramatically in the
1990s, to an average of 159 per
year.
7. The deadliest day in law
enforcement history was Sept.
11, 2001, when 72 officers were
killed while responding to the
terrorist attacks on America.
8. New York City has lost
more officers in the line of duty
than any other department, with
688 deaths. California has lost
1,420 officers, more than any
other state. The state with the
fewest deaths is Vermont, with
19.
9. There are 928 federal offi-
cers listed on the memorial, as
well as 502 correctional officers
and 34 military law enforce-
ment officers.

Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE The
Florida Department of'
Environmental Protection on
Friday released an updated
version of its emergency man-
agement Web site, providing
immediate access to updated
information on wildfires, air
quality and drought condi-
tions. The Web page is
designed to keep Floridians
informed about conditions in
their community and current
emergency advisories.
"Florida is committed to
keeping our residents up-to-
date on current conditions
throughout the state by pro-
viding constant updates to our
emergency Web page," DEP
Secretary Michael W. Sole
said. "The information on our


Web page allows residents to
take actions to protect their
families and their homes." *
Florida is currently experi-
encing more than 220 fires
across more than 50 counties,
causing impacts to the state's
air quality in certain areas.
DEP's Web site provides daily
air monitoring reports and
current health or smoke advi-
sories, as well as information
on current restrictions on
burning.
The page links to other
important information on
emergency situation, such as
wildfire reports by the
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services'
Division of Forestry and
emergency response reports
by the Division of Emergency


Management.
In addition, DEP's Web site
contains information on cur-
rent drought conditions
throughout the state. Parts of
Florida, including South and
Southwest Florida, are cur-
rently experiencing unusually
dry weather that may persist
long enough to cause prob-
lems such as crop damage
and/or water supply short-
ages,
The page contains a weekly
drought summary, Florida's
Drought Action Plan as well
as links to get information on
current water restrictions in
place throughout the state.

'Purple Heart Highway,' 'Jaws


of Life' on county agenda


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@tnewssun.coim
SEBRING The
Highlands County commis-
sioners will review a variety
of requests and presentations
Tuesday, from a proclamation
to support the naming of U.S.
27 "Purple Heart Highway"
north to Michigan to the pur-
chase of a "Jaws of Life."
The commissioners meet at
9 a.m. the first four Tuesday's
every month. The meeting is
broadcast live by Comcast on
Channel 4 and replayed
Wednesday evenings.
Harry March and Fred
Arbelo, Military Order of the
Purple Heart, are first on the
agenda with request for U.S.
27, which already has been
named "Purple Heart
Highway" through Highlands
County.
They'll be followed by a
presentation of space needs
for the Human Services and
Veteran Services offices,
which share a building on
George Boulevard.


Together, the offices need
an additional 6,915 square
feet 2,400 for the Veterans
side and $4,515 for Human
Services.
Officials from both servic-
es have complained clients
lack privacy in discussing
their cases, wheelchair
maneuverability is con-
strained due to furniture
arrangements and veterans
don't like entering the build-
ing through the same doors as
welfare recipients.
On Tuesday, the assistant
director of Human Services
will present three options to
meet their space needs for the
next five-10 years. They
range from $960,000 to
$1,079,000.
The Clerk of Courts'
finance officer will present
the interim financial report of
key operating performance
measures.
The 30-page presentation is
available online at
http://hcbcc.net. Click on
"view an agenda" and then


click on the additional infor-
mation link in the upper right
hand corner of the Tuesday's

ed to the Children's Services Foundation of Highlands County. The money was raised
during the 'Dolly and Friends' fundraiser show recently at the American Legion Hall in
Lake Placid. The show raised more contributions than any other fundraiser the founda-
tion has hosted since 1994. The major contributors were The LaGrow family, Tom and
Laura Shirley and John and Peggy Borgemeister. The foundation will use the donations
to help battered children and women in Highlands County. Contributions will be split
between the Children's Advocacy Center and the Highlands County Family Safehouse.
Roberts said some checks had already been written to help battered women and victims
of abuse.

well."
"If nobody asks and nobody
points it out, then people will
think they have all they
need," Mechling said Friday.
Since April 20, Mechling
and his budget team have
been fine-tuning the budget
requests that have come in
from the departments.
Likewise, he's worked with
human resource director John
Minor on the personnel
requests that were due March
9.
Collectively, the county
departments (excluding con-
stitutional officers) requested
about 32 new positions and
several upgrades or reclassifi-
cations.
In recent days, some
requests have been pulled for
various reasons, Mechling
said, and the exact number of

tals, lawyers and chiroprac-
tors to rack up charges,"
Justin Glover, State Farm
spokesperson and member of
Floridians for Lower
Insurance Costs (FLIC), said.
"At this point, we don't
believe no-fault can be fixed.
It has never worked as it
should, and the best thing is
for it to go away."
In February, State Farm,
the state's largest auto insur-
er, filed new rates that would
save customers an average of
15.3 percent on their rates if
no-fault expires. Glover said
currently available coverage.
options, such as medical pay-
ments and uninsured
motorists coverage, would
make up for the loss of PIP.
He also said State Farm's
desire for no-fault to expire
is not rooted in profit.
"We think our customers
are paying too much," Glover
said. "We can make money
on a system that's broken,
_- but that doesn't mean we
should continue it."
Allstate, Florida's No. 2
personal auto insurer, is
working alongside State
Farm as part of FLIC to end
the no-fault era.
"We feel there's too much
fraud and abuse in the system
that no reform will fix,"
Allstate spokesman Adam
Shores said. "We're pushing
for repeal of the system, and
our focus is making sure the
no-fault system goes away."
Health insurance
costs would rise
On the other side of the
debate are the state's hospi-
tals, who say the repeal will
cost them hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars.
"We're the only provider
in this debate that cannot turn
the patient away," said Rich
Rasmussen, vice president
for strategic communications
for the Florida Hospital
Association. "A lawyer can
choose not to take a client, a
chiropractor can choose not
to treat a patient. But in the
emergency department, we're
required to stabilize and treat'
the patient."
The expiration of no-fault
will cause health insurance
costs to soar because the
costs that are covered by PIP
would have to be absorbed
by health insurers and hospi-
tals, Rasmussen said.
Under the current system,
the health insurer picks up
the cost of medical care once
the $10,000 threshold is
reached. But without PIP
coverage, the cost will be
picked up by the health
insurer from the first dollar.

requested new positions was-
n't readily available Friday.
If the commissioners
approved all of the requests,
the county would face $1.36
million annually in new
salaries and another $1.97
million in benefits, Mechling
said. That doesn't include
new desks, phones, vehicles
or whatever the job descrip-
tion warrants.
County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete asked for the most
people nearly half of the
county's personnel requests.
"How many do I expect to
receive?" Gavarrete said
Friday. "The answer is none."
If his budget is cut by just
10 percent, he won't be able
to fill three current vacancies,
much less-add new positions.
Of his current $1.8 million
budget, $1.4 million is for his
staff. Gavarrete said 10 per-
cent $180,000 is criti-
cal.
His three vacancies. -


The result, he said, would be
an auto insurance system that
would provide money for the
car and not the person.
"If PIP goes away, the auto
insurer will pay to repair the
broken bumper of the car, but
they won't pay to repair the
broken arm of the driver,"
Rasmussen said.
Sebring insurance agent
Mark Andrews said the sun-
set of no-fault could mean a
longer payment process for
medical care.
"Essentially, if anyone gets
hurt in a car wreck, medical
bills won't be paid by anyone
until they figure out who's at
fault," Andrews said. "If
someone contests anything, it

development assistant, survey

neer total $185,000
(including benefits).
"The positions I asked for
are positions we need to con-
tinue services but also imple-
ment the concurrency man-
agement system," Gavarrete
said. The board recently
adopted the concurrency man-
agement system with help
from consulting firm Tindale-
Oliver & Associates. "If I
don't have the people to
implement that, I'm going to
need to hire more and more
consultants. That takes
money, too. If the funds aren't
there. I don't know what I'm
going to do."
Some of the requested posi-


could take a while before
bodily injury coverages
respond."
While the expiration of no-
fault seems imminent,
Governor Charlie Crist has
said he might place the issue
on the agenda for the June
special session.
But as of now, no-fault's
days remain numbered. And
while groups on both sides of
the debate are predicting
what a future without no-
fault will hold, Andrews said
he is unsure about what hap-
pens next.
"I have no idea what the
ramifications are," Andrews
said. "It's going to be inter-
esting."

tions were denied in previous
years.
"We didn't have anybody
ask for the sky when they just
needed something lower,"
Minor said. "Here in the
county, the philosophy is, 'If
you ask long enough, you
might eventually get it.' We
don't make our decisions
based 6n how many years
they ask, but there is some-
thing to be said for persist-

commissioners' question and
shows up to public hearings
with answers.
Minor noted that it's rare
for a department head to come
forward with excess person-
nel, and ask for the position to
be cut. Instead, they'll ask to
reclassify the position to
account for a change in job
descriptions or increased
responsibility.
"We're not overstaffed by.

department with one or two

after punch-card ballots were

Highlands County didn't
switch to touch-screen sys-
tems because of cost con-
cerns.
"We didn't go to touch-
screens because it would have
cost over $1.2 million,"
Campbell said. "Optical scan
was $400,000."
The county does utilize a
touch-screen system in each
of the county's precincts, in
order to give blind and dis-
abled voters a chance to vote
without requiring assistance.
"We were the first county
in the state that did that,"
Campbell said. After a federal
law was passed mandating
"privacy and independence"
for disabled voters, all Florida

counties were required to put
in at least one touch-screen
machine or other disabled-
accessible balloting system in
each precinct.
But many counties mostly
in and around Miami, Tampa
and Orlando went to a
strictly touch-screen system
because it saved them from


having to print off the many
varieties of ballot types. (In
the 2000 election, the city of
Miami used more than 500
ballot styles, which have to be
printed in three languages.)
But thanks to the recently-
passed law, those counties are
now required to have optical-
scan ballots available, which


means officials there are now
having to scramble to get bal-
lots ready to go by the first of
next year.
But fortunately for
Campbell and his staff, that
part of the new law won't be a
burden to this county.
"Highlands County is in good
shape," he said.


.Why 3/4 of homesellers


don't get the price they


want for their homes
By JUDY WELKER


A new report has just
been released which
reveals 7 costly mistakes that
most homeowners make when
selling their home, and a 9 Step
System that can help you sell
your home fast and for the most
amount of money.
This industry report shows
clearly how the traditional ways
of selling homes have become
increasingly less and less
effective in today's market. The
fact of the matter is that fully
three quarters of homesellers
don't get what they. want


for their home and become
disillusioned and .- worse
- financially disadvantaged
when they put their home on
the market.
As this report uncovers,
most homesellers make 7
deadly mistakes that cost them
literally thousands of dollars.
The good news is that each and
every one of these mistakes is
entirely preventable.
In answer to this issue,
industry insiders have prepared
a FREE special report entitled
"The 9 Step System to Get


Your Home Sold Fast and For
Top Dollar". This report clearly
identifies potential trouble-
spots, and lays. out an easy-to-
follow step-by-step system to
help you get the most money
for your home.

Does Medicare recognize estibular/fal and balance therapy?
YES! Not only do they recognize it, they welcome it as an ongoing movement toward the reduc-
tion and prevention of hip fractures and the resulting mortality and morbidity.
What Types of Diagnoses & Conditions Does Vestibular rehabilitation Treat?
Some of these conditions include:
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV] Labyrinthitis
Meniere's Disease Stroke and Transient Ischemic Attacks
Vestibular Neuritis
To help determine if you may be headed for a fall, take the Balance Self Test
below. If you answer 'yes' to one or more of the questions, you could be at
risk. The best way to determine if you have a problem, however, is to talk
with your physician who might recommend that you get a balance
screening test from a qualified clinician.
Have you fallen more than once in the past year?
Do you take medicine for two or more of the following diseases:
heart disease, hypertension, arthritis, anxiety or depression?
o o you feel dizzy or unsteady if you make a sudden changes in
Movement, such as bending down or quickly turning?
SHave you experienced a stroke or other neurological
Sl problem that has affected your balance?
SDo you have difficulty sitting down or rising from a
,,,seated or lying position?~

Black water blues


It is an inconvenient truth
-just as we pass through
time, food passes through us.
Now this isn't a big deal if
you are alone on a deserted
island. But when people
crowd together, it becomes a
major problem.
Which is why septic tanks
came to be invented.
A septic tank system is
actually a rather simple
affair, comprised of a cement
box placed under ground,
some piping, and enough
land to form a drainage field.
Here's how it works.
Household waste water
enters the cement tank
untreated. The waste water
sits, as it is meant to, and
separates into different com-
ponents.
Lighter solids, like fat or
grease, rise to the top form-
ing a scum, while heavier
solids sink to the bottom
becoming sludge.
Bacteria accumulate natu-
rally and begin to break
down the solids. That action
is what creates the terrible
odor, and turns the water a
dark, almost black, brownish
gray.
Driven by gravity, the liq-
uid (called sewage, waste
water, or black water) drains
out through a pipe and soaks
into the ground of the drain
field, which naturally filters
it.
Meanwhile, what doesn't
decompose slowly accumu-
lates at the bottom of the
tank,..That result, called pan-
cake batter in the business,

has to be removed at regular
intervals' typically every two
to five years.
But while the system is
simple, it can be easily upset.
For instance, too much
grease or fat, or non-
biodegradable material,' can
clog up the pipes, or interfere
with the drain field.
Enter sewer and septic
tank companies that provide
regular maintenance and
emergency services.
Sharion Hudson, for exam-
ple, founded All Around
Sewer & Septic five years
ago.
When I called to ask if she
would teach me about the
business, she said yes imme-
diately, and then told me to
report for work at 6:30 in the
morning.
Actually, the early morning
start is a good idea, because
in the heat cIl hie late after-
-nr,


noon this job really gets
obnoxious.
But that's not the main rea-
son her crews start so early.
The fact is they are constant-
ly in demand, often working
until late in the evening.
Hudson, who has put on
work clothes and shoveled
muck when needed, said it is
rare for a day to go as
planned. And emergencies,
she added, can happen at any
time. If it is a case of a
backed-up pipe, arid health is
threatened, she'll send a crew
out at midnight if necessary.
So right away you know
this job is demanding. But
the long hours are only a part
of the story.
The worst thing about this
job is the smell that comes
with it and of course,
being aware of what causes,
the stink.
The odor is hard to
describe because it is compli-
cated and layered. For
starters, its main body is so
powerful and ugly you can
almost taste it, and then there
is an unpleasant s%%eeines;
that overlays it and lingers in
your nose.
In other words, once you
smell black water, you'll
never forget it, and like a
whiff of rotting possum,
never mistake it for anything
else.
So. There are long hours
and a nasty product with its
odor to contend with.
That leaves the actual
work, which is a different

Sewage from residences and
businesses is processed and
used as a fertilizer on pas-
ture and range land (above).
Its use is strictly overseen.
For example, it has to
sprayed at least 200 feet
from any water source, or
100 feet from a neighbor's
property. Jeff Tyson, who is
driving this truck, has to
jump out of the cab while
the truck is in motion, and
run back to turn on the
valve. JeffT,,son righti has
been working for All Around
Sewer & Septic for about two
years. Here he is digging to
uncover.the seplic lank in a pri-
vate yard. He had bad ne%%s for
the owners, % ho had planted a
fruit tree in "hat turned out to
be the drain field. The tree
would hate to go. its roots too
much of a threat to the system.

TUFFLEY
Continued from 11A
sort of challenge.
To begin with, it's physical. You
have to haul, pound, dig and twist.
Plus, a well-maintained septic
tank will save its owner thousands
of dollars, so you have to be knowl-
edgeable and able to answer a wide
variety of questions.
Then there's the heavy truck with
a sloshing cargo that you have to
drive safely, but on a tight schedule.
That takes skill and special training.
For example you need a CDL class
B license, with a tanker endorse-
ment.
I rode with Jeff Tyson for three
hours one recent morning. He did
all of the above and more.
We started out with a run to a
farm at the south end of Arbuckle
Creek Road, then drove up-to a
house in Avon Park Lakes.
These two stops encompass the
full circle of what Tyson does.
It turns out that raw sewage can
be turned from a health hazard to a
benefit.
Let's start with the second stop of
the day the residence where we
pumped out the septic tank.
First Tyson had to find the septic
tank, and then dig to clear the
entrance. While he was doing that I
dragged hoses off the truck and laid
them out for use.
The three-inch hoses are made of


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Septic systems, while simple, are delicate. The root ball of a tree can threaten from the outside, while solids,
like these toys, all screened out of processed sewage, can cause problems from the inside. In an informal sur-
vey, Tyson said most are boy's toys.


a re-enforced green rubber-like
material. Each has a metal coupling
at one end. They come in a variety
of lengths, the longest being 30
feet.
In my case, the tank was about 80
feet from the truck. That meant I
had to man handle three hoses into
place.
What surprised me was how ,
heavy they were of course, that's
to be sure they don't burst while
under pressure.
But even swinging them over my
shoulder, and putting my whole
body into it, they were difficult to
maneuver. I was panting before I
was done.
And while most of the hoses were
clean on the outside, the leading
section is lowered into the tank, so


it is pretty disgusting. Once I
touched it, because you have to, it
brought out the Howard Hughes in
me. Even though I was wearing
heavy gloves, I pictured millions of
germs with banners, and a brass
band marching gleefully up my
arms.
But that wasn't the worst part.
When the tank is pumped out,
you have to put your head inside
and take a good look using a flash-
light to make sure everything has
been properly cleared. Leaning in to
take a picture is something I hope I
never have to do again.
Tyson told me he sometimes has
to climb inside a tank, to shovel out
the accumulated sand and other
gunk.
When I made a weak joke about


fainting, he took it seriously. Tanks,
which are typically big enough to
stand in, are painted with a black
protective finish inside. While you
might not faint, he said, they are so
dark, it is very easy to get disorient-
ed, and not be able to find your way
out.
That's why no one goes in unless
they have a partner at the surface.
Once the black water is pumped
into the truck, it is returned to the
All Around compound.
There it is pumped through a
screen, to remove remaining solids,
and into an underground tank where
it is aerated and treated with lime to
raise the pH level.
That process is repeated three
times, until the product is clean
enough to be used as a fertilizer,


albeit with some restrictions. Then
it's applied to pasture and range
land.
Which is what we were doing at
the farm on Arbuckle Creek Road
first thing in the morning.
Tyson opened the valve and
drove the truck up and down while
its tank emptied onto the ground.
Once it was empty, we had to put
on our gloves and walk the track to
pick up any solids that had slipped
through the cleansing process.
That's when I saw what a nuisance
tampons, sanitary napkins and baby
wipes are; the ground was littered
with them.
These paper products may go
down the toilet, but they don't dis-
integrate. In other words don't flush
them, because they can clog up
your system and by the way,
grease and fat are just as bad. Drain
those into a jar or can and throw
that away in the garbage.
It's not that Hudson and her
crews mind the extra work, but they
already have enough to keep them
busy. So watch what you put into
your septic system, or you'll end up
singing the black water blues while
shelling out hundreds of dollars.
And you can take from me,
Hudson and her men will have
earned every penny they charge
you.

Special to the News-Sun
Winn-Dixie has announced that now
through May 29 customers have an opportuni-
ty to donate to local animal shelters at Winn-
Dixies in Avon Park, Lake Placid and Sebring.
Like the grocer's Neighbors Helping
Neighbors program, this initiative is designed
to bring Winn-Dixie and its shoppers together
for one cause and in this case, it is to show
support for each community's animal shelters
throughout the grocer's operating area.
"We all cherish our own pets and we want to
see other animals in our communities receive
the loving care they need and deserve," said'
Terry Derreberry, corporate donations manag-
er. Or local animal shelters do a wonderful
job of attending to these animals, but they can-

Winn-Dixie is contributing funds to more
than 160 local pet shelters by collecting dona-
tions at the grocer's 521 stores throughout its
operating area. Winn-Dixie Stores in
Highlands County will donate to the
Highlands County Humane Society.
Shoppers will find donation scan sheets and
information on the local shelter receiving the
aid at Winn-Dixie registers. When checking
out, they may donate any amount ranging from
50 cents to $500 directly to their local animal
shelter. The cashier will scan the scan sheet,
which automatically adds that amount to the
customer's total bill.

The 'joys' of selling a house leave long-lasting scars

It has been many years
since Don and I have had to
deal with selling a house.
That's good, because it has
taken a long time for the psy-
chic scars to fade from the
experience.
Back in the mid '80s,
when we were expecting
John, Don and I were living
in St. Petersburg. We decided
to buy a house we would live
in for years and years. Our
children would grow up
there.
The place we found
seemed perfect. It was a two-
story house built in 1922
with a screened-in porch, a
Florida room, and high ceil-


ings. It only
had 1 '/2 baths
but we were
OK with that.


Lau
Lo
Laura


We figured in
time we could remodel when
we needed to.
Well, we did live there
several years, but not nearly
as long as Don and I thought
we would. To make a long
story short, we wound up not
only moving out of St.
Petersburg, but out of
Florida.
Thus began the period in
my family's life where peo-
ple who knew us (and wanted
to keep track of us) used pen-
cil to record our address.


ra's Between the
time we
ok moved from
Ware St.
Petersburg
and moved to Sebring, we
moved five times.
This is not counting mov-
ing from a rental we had here
to where we live now. It does
include four states, including
Florida. It also perhaps
played a part in the demise of
my brain, but that's not what
we're talking about here.
Before we left St'.
Petersburg, we tried to sell
the house. We had the mis-
fortune of trying to sell a
large old house during the


savings and loan bailout,
which was not a good thing
for us:
This meant, while we were
leasing and/or buying houses
in our various places of -esi-
dences we were also paying
for the St. Petersburg house.-
Don referred to the situation
as "the two house syndrome."
It sounded like a disease,
except a disease wouldn't
have driven us quite so nuts.
Note to those who are
thinking about selling a
house when you don't live in
the same state as the afore-
mentioned house: don't do it.
See WARE, page 15A


Be sure not to rush into stinky assumptions about somebody else's sniffer


Like in all households, there have
been many occasions over the years
when an unidentified odor demand-
ed investigating. In such instances,
like most people, I would recruit
other members of the family to
assist in locating the offensive
smell. My son, Luke, however,
seemed useless in such instances.
The following dialogue was typical,
regardless of how strongly offen-
sive or potentially dangerous the
odor:
"I smell something. Luke, do you
smell something?" I'd ask.
"I don't smell anything," he'd
reply.
"I think it smells like gas (we
have natural gas appliances). Do
you smell gas?"
Luke would do a cursory walk
about the house sniffing around and
say, "Nope, I don't smell anything,"
and go on about his business as if it
made no difference to him if we all
died or the house blew up.


I'd continue searching and even-
tually discover a pilot light out on
the stove or a burner not turned off
completely.
Whether it was a dead rat, rotten
leftovers, sour milk, dog poop, or
worse, Luke was absolutely useless
in locating the source of any stench.
I wondered if he'd know the house
was on fire if he didn't see smoke. I
decided he was just too busy doing
his own thing to really care.
Needless to say, I stopped asking
for his input in such trivial matters
as mysterious odors.
As he entered his teen years and
began taking an interest in girls, he
developed a taste for cologne. Since
then I've been able to tell when he's
planning to go anywhere that girls
may be present. I don't even have
to look at him to see what he's
wearing and he doesn't have to say
a word. I can smell it.
"Oh my gosh, Luke," I said one
day, fanning my hand in front of my

nostrils, "do you think you've got
enough cologne on?"
"It's OK," he said, "It'll wear off
sore in a little bit. The chicks dig
it." .
"You could kill somebody with
those fumes by the time it wears
off. Somebody will have to dig a 6-
foot hole to put the chicks in," I
told him. "You'll give all the girls a
migraine if you even get within 100


yards of them."
Still he continues regularly dous-
ing himself with ungodly amounts
of smell-goods.
One day last year, I finally dis-
covered that I was wrong about
Luke's lackadaisical attitude regard-
ing stinky odors and his obsession
with wearing an overabundance of
cologne.
"You know, I don't smell right,"
Luke said, as he rummaged through
the refrigerator.
"Of course you don't smell
right," I laughed. "You wear too
much cologne."
"No," he replied. "I mean I don't
smell like other people."
"That's because other people
don't wear so much cologne," I told
him.
"No, I don't mean that, I mean I
can't smell. My nose doesn't work
like other people's."
"What do you mean your nose
doesn't work like other people's?" I


asked.
"I think Anthony ruined my sense
of smell," he replied.
I knew that growing up with his
older brother had presented Luke
with many challenges and that the
two of them had had their share of
altercations, but for Luke to blame
his own olfactory deficiencies on
Anthony seemed a bit extreme.
"Look, I know he wasn't always
easy to get along with and I'm sure
he could rightfully be blamed for a
lot of things, but accusing Anthony
of robbing you of your sense of
smell? Come on," I said, "how do
you figure?"
That's when he reminded me of
an incident that occurred over a
decade earlier of which I had long
forgotten.
Luke must have been about 6 or 7
years old and Anthony 10 or 11
when it happened. Luke was laying

A dichotomy between thought and action


The massacre at Virginia
Tech stunned the nation and
the world yet again as
we were brought face to face
with the distinct reality of the
disregard for human life.
It's not so long ago we saw
this same disregard when a
gunman took the lives of
Amish school children. And
the ongoing terrorist attacks
leave us speechless.
In each case we weep, we
mourn and we question,
"Why?"
What has brought us to a
place in our nation and in
this world that such horrific
acts take place regularly?
Why is so little value given
to human life?
Perhaps we need to evalu-
ate our values. There was a
time when the majority of
people placed high value on
human life because the belief
system we espoused taught
we were created in God's
image. His fingerprints upon
us gave us value.
As Psalm 139: 13 and 14,
NIV, so eloquently says, "For
you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my


mother's womb.
I praise you
because I am
fearfully and
wonderfully
made."
But, that awe
of God has been
replaced with
man's arrogance
and we have
stood by and
watched what


MI

has been knit
together in a mother's womb
by God aborted and never
given the chance to live.
Truth has been replaced by
political correctness and self-
ish desires.
Neither can we deny how
much our children are
exposed to violence on
T.V., in the movies, through
the games they play nor the
music they listen to. Such
evil rather than be
shunned is mainstreamed
as just another form of enter-
tainment. But, when someone
chooses to act out the vio-
lence, we are appalled.
Has.the soil of destruction
been cultivated by a lack of


awe for our
Creator?
Those who
choose to make
a statement by
their blatant
disregard for
life slap us with
their contempt
for those we
love and value
greatly. If life
doesn't matter,


then why not
kill a herd of animals to get
their hatred out?
Perhaps the following
thoughts might be consid-
ered.
This dichotomy between
their probable thoughts that
life has no value is skewed
by their actions taking
that which is valuable to
us. It seems that though they
might not care about those
lives, they inherently know
their worth.
How can that be?
Perhaps we need to consid-
er that there is a void in each
of us caused by sin. God
wants to come in and fill that
place because it is God-


shaped and only he can fill it.
However, pride and arro-
gance cause people to reject
God's offer.
The vacuum still remains
and Satan, the enemy of our
souls, gladly counterfeits the
filling.
When taken to the
extreme, what may be left of
conscience and goodness
becomes desensitized and
twisted. Two mutually exclu-
sive and opposed views come
together in warped thoughts
that lead to warped actions.
And Satan applauds at yet
another swipe to thwart
God's kingdom.
If we expect to see less of
this kind of behavior, it may
be prudent to take the Bible
seriously.
Only when God fills hearts
will transformation take
place. Then harmony
between thoughts and actions
will lead to love and not
hatred.

tributing writer of the News-
Sun.

Continued from 14A
on the floor in the living
room watching TV while
Anthony combed the house
for something new to discov-
er or destroy.
That day, he found my nail
polish remover. It was the
kind that came in a short,
wide, plastic jar with a
sponge that had a hole in the
middle of it. Instead of
messy cotton balls, this inno-
vative new gadget allowed
you to simply insert your fin-
ger into the hole and swish it
around to remove nail polish.
Having never seen any-
thing like it before, Anthony
was fascinated. He studied it,
smelled it, and then decided
that Luke should smell it too.
That, I'm afraid, was the
last thing Luke ever smelled
with 100 percent accuracy.
"Hey, Luke," Anthony
said, leaning down and tip-
ping the jar toward his
unsuspecting little brother's
nose.
Luke complied, sniffing
the sponge profusely. What
Anthon'y didn't know was
that even though the sponge
appeared to be dry it was sat-
urated with nail polish


remover.
At precisely the moment
that Luke was taking a giant
whiff, the liquid poured out
of the jar. I can only imagine
what it felt like to inhale
what must have been at least
a tablespoon of nail polish
remover up his nose.
Based on the screams that
followed and the attempts
Luke made to kill his brother,
I'm sure I don't want to
know.
As Luke recounted the
incident I was reminded, like
so many other times in my
life, how easy it is to make
wrong assumptions about
people. I had chalked Luke's
smelling disability up to
childish laziness, self absorp-
tion, and lack of concern.
Not even once did I entertain
the notion that he was oper-
ating with a malfunctioning
sniffer.
Though I certainly won't
go sniffing around for any, I
do wonder how many other
faulty assumptions I'm still
holding onto for which I'll
one day owe an apology.
Ahhh...imagining. that irre-
sistible "new car" smell?

Continued from 14A ,
Also, don't rent the house
while you live out of state and
can't check on the renters who
'sometimes aren't doing what
they told you they would be
doing.
In the end, once we got to
Sebring, we did manage to sell
the St. Petersburg house to
someone. This someone
promptly modernized the
place, which saddened me a
little. But such is life.
As bad as our experience
was, it pales to that of real
estate agent Linda Chabucos-
Galow, who was showing a
house to prospective buyers in
Janesville, Wis. The couple
was checking out the rooms of
the house when they came
upon the owner.


That is, they came upon the
body of the owner. Linda
O'Leary's body was lying in
the bedroom. This,' of course,."
cured the coupl'eof wanting to
see any more of the house.
They and the real estate agent
got out fast and called the
cops.
Ms. O'Leary apparently had
been dead for two weeks when
she surprised the potential buy-
ers. There is nothing in the
article I read that suggests she
was a victim of foul play.
Granted, dying is one way to
get rid of the obligation of a
house you don't want to deal
with any more. But I think Ms.
O'Leary would have much
rather had the sale.

dent. She can be contacted by e-

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop

A cherished

cameo sketch

"Some day this will be
yours," my mom often said
as she showed me the
cameo that had belonged to
her mother.
It had been found in the
street by my grandfather.
Damaged yet still pos-
sessing beauty he
brought it to my grandmoth-
er.
She then showed it-to a
jeweler who salvaged it by
gently chiseling away that
which was damaged. His
craftsmanship produced a
unique, delicately carved
cameo which we learned
later had diminished its
value not enhanced as we
had thought.
But, value doesn't always
lie in dollar amounts.
My mom's affection for
this piece of jewelry came
not because of its unique
story, but because it
belonged to her mother a
gift from her father. And
that is the connection I have
with it, too.
Some years ago,. my om
generously gave it (p me.
That's when we brought it
to the jeweler. But his eval-
uation has not lessened the
affection I have for the
piece.
Telling the story draws
me to a grandma I never
had the privilege of know-
ing. And, I'm blessed by my
mom's willingness to part
with it.
In fact, when I see her
face light up each time I
wear it, my joy increases.
For me, it's a "c a m e o"
portrait of what I see in my
own mother and what moth-
erhood represents.
The letter "C" in cameo
stands for cherishing. My
mom has always gone the
extra mile in cherishing us
through her caring and gen-
erous ways as well as reach-
ing out unselfishly to others.
"A" makes me think of
adaptable. Through all her
seasons of life, she has
demonstrated adaptability.
Whether in fashion, music,
moving to new places, try-
ing new recipes or adjusting
to various health situations
- she gracefully bends.
"M" is simply for mom.
A name she wears winsome-,
ly. Seeing her in church one
Sunday morning, I couldn't
help but think how she
always looks the same to
me beautiful and full of
life.
"E" brings to mind ener-
getic. She approaches life
with spirit and liveliness -
no matter the task.
"0" reminds me of origi-
nality. She's one of a kind, a
breath of fresh air. And
she's mine. Her value in my
life cannot be measured.
"Strength and honor are
her clothing ... she watches
over the ways of her house-
hold and does not eat the
bread of idleness. Her chil-
dren rise up and call her
blessed ... a woman who
fears the Lord, she shall be
praised," says Proverbs 31:
25, 27, 28a & 30b, NKJV).
My.mom's dependable
prayers, faith and love of
the Lord complete this
"cameo" sketch. A glimpse
of motherhood. Selah

Southern pine beetle is why


our pine trees are dying


Unfortunately, we
are still seeing many
dying pine trees here
in central Florida.
My brother recently
lost two trees in his
yard. The southern
pine beetle (SPB),
Dendroctonus
frontalis, is most
likely the cause of
these tree deaths.
This aggressive tree
killer is a native


Grow
Seas
Ed A


insect that lives pre-
dominantly in the inner bark
of pine trees.
Trees attacked by SPB
often will have hundreds of
resin masses on the outer tree
bark. SPB feed on phloem
tissue where they construct
winding S-shaped or serpen-
tine galleries. The galleries
created by both the adult bee-
tles and their larvae can
effectively girdle a tree,
causing its death.
SPB also carry and intro-
duce into trees a blue-stain
fungi. These fungi colonize
in xylem tissue and block
water flow within the tree,
also causing tree mortality.
Consequently, once SPB have
successfully colonized a tree,
the tree cannot survive,
regardless of control meas-
ures. SPB infestations often
begin in .weakened or injured
trees, but a high beetle popu-
lations can invade and over-
come healthy vigorous trees
by attacking in large numbers
over a short period of time.
Adult female SPB are
responsible for pine tree
selection. After locating a
suitable tree, the female bee-
tle bores through the bark to
initiate gallery construction


in the inner phloem.
Soon after the initial
attack, females emit
an aggregation
pheromone, which
attracts males and
more females to the
tree.
V The aggregation of
beetles results in a
ing mass attack over a
short period of time.
son Mating soon takes
yen place and females
begin to construct
long, winding S-shaped gal-
leries that cross over each
other. Up to 30 eggs are
deposited in niches along
each gallery. Parent adults
may then re-emerge from the
tree one to 20 days following
egg laying and proceed to
attack the same tree or oth-
ers..
Eggs hatch in three to nine
days and the resulting larvae
feed in the inner phloem and
construct winding galleries
perpendicular to parent egg
galleries. As larvae develop,
they progressively tunnel
towards the outer bark.
During the fourth and final
larval stage, the legless grubs
move to the outer bark and
form a pupal cell. The pupal
stage lasts five to 17 days,
before the insects turn into
callow or immature adults.
Callow adults remain
under the bark for six to 14
days while their cuticle hard-
.ens and darkens. The young
adults then bore an exit tun-
nel directly through the outer
bark, leaving an open "shot"
hole behind. Generally, the
emerging beetles fly off to
attack another tree. There
may be as many as seven to

tissue, usually found under the bark, where they construct
winding S-shaped or serpentine galleries (above). The bee- /
ties and their larvae can effectively girdle a tree, causing its
death..,


nine generations per year in
Florida. SPB will infest and
kill all species of pine within
its distribution area.
Often the first noticeable
-indication of SPB attack is
foliage discoloration. Crowns
of dying pines change color
from green to yellow to red
before turning brown and
falling from the tree.
Frequently, by the time
crowns are red, the beetles
have already vacated the tree.
The earliest signs of possi-
ble SPB attack is the pres-
ence of brownish-orange bor-
ing dust and tiny white pitch
pellets accumulating at the
base of the tree, in bark
crevices, in nearby spider
webs, and on foliage beneath
'the tree. A more noticeable
indication of SPB attack is
the presence of multiple pop-
corn size lumps of pitch on
the outer bark.


Control measures to stop
infestations and death of
trees are limited. Generally,
the most effective approach
is to remove all SPB infested
pines as soon as possible.

A thought that turned into a dream


By DEE DEE JACOBSON
Highlands County Extension
It started with just a
thought, as most ideas do.
The difference is this thought
turned into an idea that soon
turned into a working dream.
For the past 10 years the
Highlands County Master
Gardeners have grown plants
to sell for youth education
and have fun doing what
Master Gardeners do best -
grow plants.
In the meager beginning,
their efforts turned into one
$500 scholarship for any
Highlands County high
school or college student pur-
suing a degree in agriculture
and or horticulture. It has
now blossomed into three
$1,500 scholarships. But the
story doesn't end there;
behind every successful
Master Gardener project are
many community leaders and
businesses that believe in our
youth and want to invest in
their future.,
This spring the Highlands
County Master Gardeners had
such an outpouring of gen-
erosity, I don't know where
to begin. There were caladi-
um, foliage, woody ornamen-
tal, and native plant nurs-
eries, citrus organizations and
irrigation companies that
donated plants, gardening
equipment, gift certificate-s.
gift cards. You name it, they
did it.
Wait, I am not done ...
what amazes me still further
is that there are area busi-
nesses not even related to the
green industry; such as mort-
gage companies, photogra-
phers, grocers and hair
dressers who donated as well.
Not because it would benefit
their business in the long run,
but because it was our chil-
dren, here in Highlands
County, that they believed in
helping with there education-
al endeavors. Now that is a
community.
This year, our Spring Plant
Sale consisted of educational
booths. After all, that is what
extension is all about, teach-
ing by doing. We had themes
such as tropical fruits,
"Bananas from Around the
World" from our very own
banana man, Don Ingram;
"Native Plants and
Butterflies" with Les Lowe;
"Palm Trees" by Don,


"Orchids Everywhere"
manned by The Petersons, a
"Micro-irrigation Display" by
Froline, a Florida Yards and
Neighborhoods and Master
Gardener information booth,
a Rain Barrel paint-a-thon,
herbs to give away in four
inch pots, door prizes that
consisted of a garden wagon
filled with ornamental plants
and tools valued at $400, a
patio set, and a hand-painted
rain barrel by Penny Bucher.
There were random draw-
ings for gift certificates,


hanging baskets. iaid sup -'
plies. Most of all, everyone-
had fun!
It was a lot of work behind
the scenes to get the plant
sale ready, but it was worth
the hard work and effort.
If you happen to have
missed this plant sale and all
the fun, the Master
Gardeners will be having
another sale in October.
Don't forget to bring the
children;;there are special
activities especially for them.

Meet Corine Burgess, new Natural Resource Specialist


The News-Sun www.newssun.com


Even though I have been
working for the Highlands
County Board of County
Commissioners since
December of 2000, it is much
to my delight that I introduce
myself as the new Natural
Resource Specialist. In my
new position I will be writing
a weekly article, "News from
the Watershed" to let you
know what is going on in the
Natural Resources realm.
Prior to being hired in my
new position, Jennifer Abby,
who is now the Soil
Conservationist for the
Natural Resource
Conservation Service, filled
the position and she is a great
help to me while I learn the
ropes. I am very excited about
my duties and look forward to
working with land owners in
an effort to assist them in
using best management prac-
tices regarding conservation
on their land through the lead-
ership of Larry Sharpe,
District Conservationist and
my new boss.
I am also looking forward
to learning new skills and uti-
lizing the knowledge that I


.already possess. I'm
sure one of my
favorite tasks will be
visiting schools and
educational facilities
to teach children
about the environ-
ment and how to use
conservation tech-
niques to protect it. I
know that working
with the Lakes


News
From The
U.. -


Management crew, Wat
Clell Ford and Erin
McCarta, will be lots Corin
of fun and a learning
experience for me. It would
seem that a very exciting
future awaits me.
I have worked for
Highlands County for the past
six years in the capacity of
Administrative Secretary for
the Assistant County
Administrator, Public Works
Coordinator for the
Engineering Department and
then Public Information
Officer. Before that, I was
employed by the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection, Florida Park
Service. I started out as park
ranger for Highlands


ersnea

e Burgess


Hammock State,
Park. I loved being a
park ranger, but
wanted to promote,
so I then moved up
to DeLeon Springs to
become an assistant
park manager. After
years spent in that
capacity, I ended up
in Key West as the
park manager of Fort
Zachary Taylor State
Historic Site. I spent
12 years with the
Florida Park Service,


which was a challenging
career. In that time, I learned '
much about the environment
in the different parts of
Florida as well as conserva-
tion practices for our precious
natural and cultural resources.
My husband and I moved
back to Sebring in December
of 2000 to be closer to our
families. I had secured a posi-
tion with the county before
moving here. Now, six years
later, I am back in the Natural
Resources field once again. I
couldn't be happier.
I have recently completed
my bachelor's degree from


Barry University and am
excited to put my education to
work. While in the Park
Service, we moved five times
in 12 years and we have no
plans to move again. I consid-
er Sebring my home and my
husband and I plan to stay put.
I have been interested in the
environment since childhood.
My goal has always been to
serve in some way to assist in
protecting and conserving our
natural resources. In addition,
I would like to be a good
example to my children and
teach them how to be good
conservationists. I believe this
position is a good fit and I am
confident that these goals will
be achieved through this
career choice.
I look forward to my new
duties and answering any
questions you may have.
Please feel free to contact me
at 402-6545.

Corine Burgess is the Natural
Resource Specialist II with
Highlands Soil and Water
Conservation District.

First-time

home buyers:

What to know

before you buy

A record number of
Americans now own their
own homes, with the U.S.
homeownership rate growing
to nearly 70 percent in the
first half of 2004. The num-
ber of first-time homeowners
is on the rise as well, espe-
ciall among single women
and minorities who tradition-
ally lagged in homeowner-
ship.
"; But while first-time buyers
have more knowledge about
the process than did their
parents, buying a home is
still fraught with pitfalls for
.first-time buyers who don't
have the experience to recog-
nize and avoid costly mis-
takes.
Here's how to avoid some
of the most common errors
made by first-time home-
owners:
Don't overspend. Once
you determine the maximum
amount you want to spend,
stick with it. Mortgage
lenders typically won't allow
monthly housing expenses to
bei.more thjn one-third of a
buyer's mnonthl\ household
gross income, so your budget
is largely pre-determined by

people, and give locals, the
opportunity to showcase their
talents.
They hope to accomplish
this by building a 1,200- seat
'outdoor theatre where they
can produce dramas. like
"'Florida: Wilderness to
Wonderland."
This first production is the
story of how this area of
Florida came into existence
-- from the Seminoles,. to the
Crackers, to the present.
(Who can resist a romantic
story that features Indians
and Cowboys?)
A fundraiser, chaired by
our own Rita Youngman of
Coldwell Banker, includes
the sale of front row seats.
Your purchase entitles you to
two passes per season for two
seasons and your name (or
your business, or a memorial
honoring a loved one) on the
back of the front row seat.
The theatre will be on

BUYERS
Continued from 1
keep in mind that the costs
associated with buying a new
home are much more than the
monthly mortgage payments.
Other expenses include:
A down payment -
anywhere from 5-to-20 per-
cent of the home's purchase
price.
Property taxes, which
average around 1.5-to-2 per-
cent of a home's purchase
price.
Homeowners' insurance
and Private Mortgage
Insurance, which is required
by lenders if your down pay-
ment is less than 20 percent
of the purchase price.
Fees imposed for special
tax districts, also known as
special assessments or spe-
cial service areas, which are
becoming more common in
subdivisions.
Closing costs, which
include points and other fees -
charged by the lender and
can add up to 3 percent of
the amount you borrow; title
insurance, which can range
from a few hundred dollars
to more than a thousand,
depending on the purchase
price of your home; inspec-
tions, $200 to $500; and
other miscellaneous fees.
Maintenance. Varies
year to year, but expect to
spend about 1 percent of the
purchase price annually on
maintenance and repairs.
Don't wait to get pre-.
approved. It's common for
first-time buyers to find a
home and fall in love with it,
only to learn later that they
can't afford it. This can be
avoided by getting true pre-
approval for a mortgage,
which is more than a letter
from your lender" claiming
"pre-approval." '.True pre-
approval means assembling
all the documentation you
need for a mortgage commit-
ment; once a home is,found,
the only thing left to do is


get an appraisal. At this
point, you also need to deter-
mine which type of mortgage
makes sense for you: Fixed-
rate or adjustable-rate? 15-
year or 30-year? Once
you've researched all the
options, consult your real
estate attorney or another
trusted source and discuss
those options until you are
comfortable in making a
decision.
Don't get duped. Many so-
called "no down-payment
loans" are money-making
scams for unsuspecting buy-
ers. If you plan to use a down
payment assistance programs,
work with well-known enti-
ties such as Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac, the governmen-
tal agencies that buy mort-
gages and package them as
investments. The programs
generally offer assistance to,
income-eligible families and
first-time home buyers who
have at least $1,000 saved.
Before agreeing to work with
an assistance program, check
with the Homeownership
Alliance of Nonprofit
Downpayment Providers, or
HAND, which has a set of
best practices and a code of
ethics, as well as a list of
member companies on its
Web site, www.downpaymen
talliance.org,
Don't go it alone. Once
you pre-qualify for a loan,
assemble your real estate
team to help you with the
process. Contact an attorney
who specializes in residential
real estate, and begin your
search for a real estate agent,
an inspector, an appraiser and
a surveyor. Get recommenda-
tions from friends, co-work-
ers and others not connected
with the deal.
Interview several of each,
and pick the professionals in
which you have confidence,
and who has dealt in the
county where you are looking
to buy. Ask for references. In
each instance, ask what the
fee is and what specific serv-
ices it covers.


Your real estate attorney
will head up your real-estate
team reviewing your con-
tract, explaining local real
estate laws and customs,
ensuring all provisions and
contingencies are in your
best interest, preparing or
review the closing statement
and other closing documents,
and letting you know about
seller contingencies that
affect your interests.
Don't be in a hurry. One of
the biggest mistakes a first-
time home buyer can make is
acting on impulse-even in a
hot market. Buying a home
should be an ongoing process
and not something you do in
two weeks. Look at many
homes, including an assort-
ment of types of homes.
When you view a property,
list the positives and the neg-
atives. Talk to the neighbors.
Visit the neighborhood at
various times of the day and
on various days of the week.
Consider the qualities that
make a neighborhood desir-
able, such as ample street
lighting, sidewalks, parks or
playgrounds and little
through-traffic.
Don't sign anything ... yet.
Once you find the house you
want to call home, you'll
make an offer by submitting
what's called a "contract for
purchase and sale" or "pur-
chase and sale agreement,"
usually supplied by the
Realtor. Don't sign anything
before your attorney has
reviewed it and ensured that
all the provisions are to your
benefit. Remember, once the
contract is signed, you're
legally bound to the terms.
The document spells out the
terms and conditions of the
purchase from the pur-
chase price all the way down
to who pays the utilities until
you take possession of the
house.

Sebring, Pine Forest -



a contrast, comparison


News-Sun photo by DANIEL HOEHNE
The Blue Streak baseball team is the only Sebring squad doing some hitting, as running back
Daniel Burnett (#21) found out with J.C. Howard (#22) putting a lick on him and Jacoby
Massaline (#45) closing in to add another.



Gridders get under way


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING As the high
school baseball season takes
it's last few hits, the Sebring
football team got to do some
hitting of its own Friday
night during the annual Blue-
White Spring Game
intrasquad scrimmage.
"We're a pretty young
team," head coach Jared
Hamlin said. "So this (the
spring practice season) gives
us a chance to get a look at
the kids and get them adjust-
ed."
After an 8-4 record last
season, the Blue Streaks will
return standout running back
T.J. Williams but will have to
fill the shoes of quarterback
A.C. Wilson.
For that task, Hamlin has
one of those nice problems
that coaches sometimes face
- two possibilities.
"We have two guys that
each bring something a little
different," he said. "Jamarle
Fletcher will be a sophomore
in the fall and he brings a lot
of quickness and speed.
Joseph Lezama was our.


backup last year, so he brings
experience and he's a little
farther ahead with just know-
ing what's going on overall."
And while he admits to not
liking the idea of a platoon
system, with the combination

'He (TJ.

Williams) is our
horse, and we 're
going to ride him,
ride him, ride

him.'
JARED HAMLIN
of skills the two QB's bring,
he allows for that possibility
- but he already knows who
his main weapon is going to
be as he motioned toward
Williams..
"That guy is going to be
our horse, and we're going to
ride him, ride him, ride him,"
Hamlin said. "We've got
some real good skill position
players. including Daniel
Burnett (a lightning bug-
quick sophomore-to-be run-


ning back), but we lost five
out of six lineman to gradua-
tion, so we're going to have
to really work hard on that.
There's not a lot your run-
ners, quarterbacks or
receivers can do if they're
not getting protection from
the line."
Looking down on the field
from his perch atop the press
box, Hamlin knew that while
this scrimmage was a valu-
able tool for his players, it
didn't offer a whole lot.as ana
overview,
"With the team being split,
you can't really tell how
you'll be as a full team," he
said. "We've just had a few
days of practice, and will
have a few more before we
go to Bartow (Thursday) and
we really won't know what
we've got until we play that
game as one whole team."
And with that marking the
end of the spring football
season, the question is asked
when the preparation for the
fall season begins.
Hamlin's answer spoke
volumes in three words, "the
following Monday."


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING Looking at
the Sebring opponent in
Friday's state
baseball semi-
final game in .
Sarasota, one
is left to notice
similarities as
well as differ-
ences between
the Blue
Streaks and
Pine Forest's
Eagles.
Whereas
Sebring has a
long and storied tradition,
dating back to it's first state
tournament experience,
resulting the Class B state
championship in 1949, Pine
Forest only opened it's doors
as a school in 1975.
But what the Pensacola
school lacks in longevity, it
has certainly made up for in
frequency on the state base-
ball scene.
Its first playoff appear-
ance came in 1986, where it
lost it's first game in the
Class 3A playoffs to
Tallahassee's Leon High.,
The most recent Eagles
appearance was in '05,
another first-game loss to
fellow Pensacola.high
school, Pace.
But in between, Pine


Forest has made nine other
appearances at the state level
- reaching the final four in
'94 and '97.
Since their
'49 State
Championship,
the Blue
Streaks have
reached the
state playoffs
13 more times,
including their
- last final four
appearance in
'66 and 'elite
eight' appear-
ances in '00
and '04.
With their playoff runs
ended in both '02 and '05 by
their neighbor, Pace, the
Eagles could
say they got
some revenge
in toppling
another local i
school, defeat-
ing West
Florida High
School
Tuesday to
advance to the
state semifi-
nals.
Similarly,
but more directly, Sebring
ousted two-time season
ender Tampa Jesuit, which
put a stop to Blue Streak
playoff hopes last season as


well as in '96.
Within those two semifi-
nal-securing wins, more sim-
ilarities and differences are
found.
Sebring got another
exceptional performance by
it's staff ace, right-hander
Chaz Abeln, who pitched
seven innings, giving up
three hits, two runs, .one
walk and struck out 12.
Pine Forest also got a
great start from its' hurler,
southpaw Justin Oehrle,
holding West Florida to two
hits, zero runs, four walks
and also 12 strikeouts.
The Eagles topped the
Jaguars 1-0, only scratching
out one hit in the process -
while the Streaks battered
Tigers starter,
Kevin
Quackenbush,
for nine hits in,
their 4-2
regional final
S win.
But of
course, all the
,similarities
really won't
matter once the
teams take the
field at Ed
Smith Stadium Friday/
evening.
Because then, it will be all
about the difference on the
scoreboard.

Game at Firemen's Field Friday night.


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING When the
Sebring Blue Streaks go to
Sarasota Friday to take on the
Pine Forest 'Eagles of
Pensacola in the semifinals
of the Class 4A baseball
championship, fans who
won't have the opportunity to
travel to Ed Smith Stadium
will have the opportunity to
listen in as Lite 105.7 FM
carries the play-by-play.
"We'll have a pre-game
show at 4:40 Friday after-
noon, with the game to start
at 5 p.m.," said Cohan Radio
Group President Peter
Coughlin.
The plans are, that should
Sebring advance to the cham-
pionship game the station
will carry that contest as


well. It's scheduled for
Saturday night at 7 p.m..
That will be against the win-
ner of the match-up between
Orlando's Bishop Moore and
Belen Jesuit out of Ft.
Lauderdale.
The play-by-play will
come courtesy of Youth
Sports Marketing, a
Jacksonville-based firm spe-
cialize in high school sports.
Steve Berrey will be call-
ing the action with Cameron
Norris. Berry is affectionate-
ly known as "Mr. High
School" and has called every
high school football champi-
onship since 1991 and has a
statewide syndicated -talk
show on high school sports.
Cameron Norris is a former
Florida State University


information officer and
sports writer.
Sebring earned the right to
move on in the tourney by
taking the Class 4-3A
Regional Championship with
a 4-2 win over Tampa Jesuit
Wednesday night.
This is the first time the
school has advanced to the
state level since the Sebring
basketball Blue Streaks did it
in 1999. It is the first time the
baseball squad has. reached
that level since 1966. The Blue
Streaks won the state baseball
championship in 1949.
Also for Friday's game,
there will be a scoreboard on
www.newssun.com that will
be updated at the end of each
half inning of the game.

LESSON


10 YEARS AGO
May 10, 1997: A medal each, from the state meet, was brought home by an Avon Park and Lake
Placid track and field athlete. Lady Dragon Schrika Augustine cleared 5-feet, 2-inches in the high jump,
earning her a fourth-place medal, while Richard Bloom of Avon Park took fifth-place honors in the high
jump by clearing the bar at 6-feet, 2-inches.
35 YEARS AGO
May 8, 15, 1972: Pitching for Rotary in the Dixie Major League, Billy Sellers pitched a perfect game
- not allowing a single baserunner to the opposition. In addition to the great pitching, a stellar defen-
sive effort from Robby Maddos aided the effort. One week later, Paul Christian, pitching for Sebring Paint,
turned in an impressive performance of his own, striking out 15 Barnett Bank batters.

Marlins reliever Owens goes on DL


News-Sun photos by DANIEL HOEHNE
Miscues are a part of early season football, as was the case when this pitch from Joseph
Lezama (#12) to Daniel Burnett (#21) didn't quite go according to plan. Moments later,
Lezama was in chase mode as Ricky Chavis (#28) had scooped up the fumbled ball and took
off toward the Blue team goal line. Lezama would catch up to Chavis and save the touch-
down.


Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) -
The Marlins put rookie
reliever Henry Owens on the
15-day disabled list Friday
because of tendinitis in his
right rotator cuff, the latest
Florida pitcher to be side-
lined.
"I don't know really how it
happened. It's probably
something that just came
along with an over-use thing
maybe," said Owens, who
told pitching coach Rick
Kranitz after Tuesday's game
that he felt discomfort in his
shoulder with every throw.
"It's frustrating, because
you want to be out there and
help your team win games,"

Owens said. "It's definitely
going to be tough, every day
that goes by, knowing you
can't help your team."
Five other Marlins pitchers
are out with injuries, includ-
ing starters Josh Johnson and
Anibal Sanchez.
Owens' move was retroac-
tive to Wednesday. Outfielder
John Gall was selected from
Triple-A Albuquerque.
Owens, who became the
Marlins' closer after new-
comer Jorge Julio lost the
job, was 2-0 with four saves
in five chances. He had a
1.96 ERA in 17 games.
"It's probably the work-
load in April and early May,"
manager Fredi Gonzalez said.


"I'm not alarmed."
Entering a weekend series
at Washington, the Florida
bullpen had blown six saves
and ranked first in the majors
with 130 innings.
Gonzalez said several
relievers could step in to
close games during Owens'
absence.
As for Julio, the manager
said he'd prefer to use him in
one or two non-save situa-
tions before using him at the
end of a game.
"He's the guy we want.
The guy's got experience to
do it but we've got to build
confidence in him," Gonzalez
said.
