More safety

workers get

tested for TB
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK While
local safety service work-
ers undergo a series of
tests for tuberculosis, the
citizenship status of the
victims remains uinknal'.r II
Police report indicates
- Jose Alfredo Santizo-
Morales had planned to
swim from Donaldson
Park to the other side of
Lake Verona and back
during a May 1 outing but
disappeared beneath
the water.
After Morales
drowned, Avon Park
police recovered a birth
certificate from Mexico
and a voters registration
with a photo identifica-
tion.
According to the police
report Morales is said to
be a full-time resident of
Avon Park, having lived
at a West Camphor Street
address.
In addition to a number
of Avon Park firefighters,
an Avon Park police offi-
cer and a Highlands
County Emergency
Medical Services crew
that tried to revive the
victim also have under-
gone baseline tests for
TB. The firefighters have
all tested negative thus
far. The EMS crew and
Avon Park Police officer
have also been tested, but
results are unknown.
However, medical offi-
cials say the baseline test-
ing is only the beginning
of the process.
"We started the proto-
col after we were noti-
fied," EMS Director Rick
Weigand said.
According to
Highlands County Health
Department TB Nurse
Becky Jenkins, there is a
series of steps established
under guidelines set under

County signals intent of

rural stewardship plans
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING The county commission board
voted 4-1 Tuesday to formally notify the state in
writing its intent to designate 133,000 acres for
rural land stewardship.
Rural Land Stewardship is a new program by
which local governments and private land owners
work in concert, with state scrutiny, to develop a
comprehensive plan amendment that is supposed to
protect the environment while confining develop-
ment to designated areas.
Anticipating questions as to how and when the


county should notify the Department of Community
Affairs that it seeks rural land stewardship designa-
tion for 'Atlantic Blue's 65,000 acres and Lykes
Brothers' 68,000 acres, attorney Ross MacBeth
drafted two letters.
The single-page letter, MacBeth
said, satisfies the statutory require-
ment intent. The preliminary two-
page letter asks for DCA guidance if
and when either company formally
applies for stewardship.
"There's nothing that says the
notice comes before the applica- MacBeth
tions," MacBeth said, apparently
endorsing the two-page letter. "When you have
enough information that you feel comfortable mak-
ing that (stewardship) designation, then you can
send the letter of intent."

Nonetheless, either letter would lead the commis-
sioners down the rural land stewardship path, he
said.
On commissioner Edgar Stokes' motion to send
the single-page letter and commissioner Andrew
Jackson's second, Barbara Stewart was the only
commissioner to vote "no."
"This is our first step in getting involved," Stokes
said, explaining the letter brings the county into the
process.
Board chairman C. Guy Maxcy agreed, previous-
ly noting the state would "kick it back" if the letter
is inadequate.
"I'm just trying to keep it simple," he said. "This
is the first step."

fire fee in


question
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK While
Sebring is studying whether or
not to put a non-ad valorem
assessment on residents for fire
service, the city of Avon Park is
trying to figure out how to make
theirs work more efficiently.
However, to date, they
haven't gotten the kind of help
they'd like from consultants of
the Government Services Group.
At their last meeting, council
members had questions about
what to do with governmental
buildings listed under the insti-
tutional category of the ordi-
nance. A May e-mail from GSG
attorney Heather Encinosa did
not answer their questions.
"It's pretty much what we
have heard before," Avon Park
City Councilman George Hall
said.
The city had asked additional-
ly whether it would be possible
to place assessments on various
buildings that are on church
properties while exempting the
sanctuary.
Avon Park city attorney
Gerald Buhr had reviewed the e-
mails and said he found the
exemption for governmental
entities pretty clear.
"You can't lien or foreclose
on government properties. You
could seek a writ of mandamus
from the courts if you wanted
to," he explained.
A writ of mandamus is a judi-
cial remedy that amounts to a
court order to a governmental
agency, public authority or cor-
poration to do something they
are precluded from doing under
the "nature of their public duty."
However, that might not
work. Buhr cited a case involv-
ing the Florida Department of
Transportation and the city of
Gainesville, where the city
imposed an impact fee on the
DOT. The court subsequently
ruled that although Gainesville
could bill the DOT, they could
not collect on it.
"The same thing goes with a
lot of the Florida governments;

County commissioners define essential services


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@neew'.ssiin.comt
SEBRING The commissioners
closed their meeting Tuesday with a
discussion about last week's budget
workshops.
Commissioners C. Guy Maxcy
and Barbara Stewart would have
preferred the department heads pre-
sented suggested spending cuts.
Instead, most department heads
discussed perceived needs from pay
raises to new equipment amid antic-
ipated state-mandated property tax
rollbacks.
"I would have found it more
meaningful for me and for the public
to learn how it would have been best
to scale back their operations,"
Stewart said, taking responsibility


for not directing administration to
include proposed cuts.
She canvassed other counties and
couldn't identify any that enter-
tained additions to their budgets.
Assistant County Administrator
Rick Helms said the departments
were told to show what they needed
to carry out functions mandated by
the commission, its administration,
and state and federal governments.
"We certainly welcome any input
the commissioners may have,"
Helms said, at Stewart's suggestion
the board workshop ways to cut
spending.
The board decided to make their
recommendations individually to
staff.
"I would like to hear what your


comments are," Stewart told Maxcy,
when he said he had ideas. "I think
the public would like to hear."
The News-Sun attempted to con-
tact the commissioners late in the
day for their definitions of essential
service and in what areas the county
could make anticipated cuts of 10,
20 or 30 percent.
Andrew Jackson and Don Bates
were not readily available.
Public safety deputies, fire
fighters and ambulance services -
topped the essential list.
"It's hard to say what's not essen-
tial," commissioner Edgar Stokes
said, calling some functions of all
departments critical. "Recreation is
not an essential, but some folks feel
we need that, especially for our


kids."
He suggested, when analyzing the
departments, prioritizing their func-
tions.
Maxcy included the county's 440-
plus employees as essential. Though
he advocates doing more with less,
Maxcy warned cutting pay might
demoralize staff.
"We must treat our employees
fairly and pay them fairly," he said.
"Those employees deliver the serv-
ices; they are an essential part of the
budget puzzle."
Maxcy and Stewart cited social
services, including those provided
by the county's health department
and privately through non-profit
organizations, as essential.
"I'm not suggesting we carte


blanche automatically give whatever
people ask for," Stewart said.
None of the commissioners -
those interviewed Tuesday evening
or during meeting comments -
advocate across-the-board cutbacks.
Stokes said he couldn't suggest
cuts without the budget in front of
him. He stressed the state should
have left the budget to the counties.
Another ad valorem rollback is on
the table regardless of what the state
does, Stokes said, calling last year's
1/2-mill reduction a start.
"Being here (on the commission)
that long, I see how essential all the
departments are," Stokes said.
Read the News-Sun Friday to
learn where commissioners will look
to trim the budget.

as much,' Schmidt said. She plans on attending community college in Orlando before
transferring to the University of Central Florida. 'I grew up in a single parent home so I
don't have a lot of money for college,' Witte said. 'This will go towards books and stuff I
need to advance my career.' Witte will attend Hillsborough Community College to study
TV production before transferring to a four-year school, possibly North Carolina State.



Kaser takes helm at Heartland Christian


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING When the
new headmaster at Heartland
Christian School saw the
opportunity to return to
Florida, he jumped at the
opportunity.
David Kaser has been an
educator for the past 13 years
and plans to draw on his expe-
rience teaching middle and
high schools as well as being
an administrator for private
schools of various sizes.
"I see campus expansion
and room to grow, adding stu-
dents and contributing to the
foundation of our rich educa-
tion," Kaser said. "We want to
continue to be looked at as the
destination for rich Christian
education."
Most recently Kaser spent
two years at a Christian
school in South Dakota, over-
seeing expansion into their


first new building and dou-
bling attendance.
He then moved to Arizona
to help open Mountain
Christian School before
accepting the headmaster
position at HCS in April.
"The people are great, the
community is
impressive
and we are
very privi-
leged to be
here," Kaser
said.
Kaser K a s e rs
wife, Dacia,
will work as the new office
manager. The couple has three
children, Peyton, Parker and
Paige, ages 8, 7 and 5, all
born in Bradenton.
The couple lived in the
Tampa area for years, so the
move to Sebring felt like
coming home, Kaser said.
More than anything, the
new headmaster has a love of


education.
"I have a passion for kids
- that's why we're here,"
Kaser said. "To help every kid
reach their full potential."
Kaser wants to push the
envelope by starting more
sports programs, but will
change very little about the
curriculum students currently
study.
"I want to continue the tra-
dition of excellence," Kaser
said.
The high school curriculum
consists of nine subjects -
English, mathematics, sci-
ence, social studies, a choice
of Spanish, French or Latin
for foreign language, Bible
study, wellness, and fine arts.
A miscellaneous area lets
students choose from key-
boarding, computer applica-
tions, or journalism.
"There is much to be done
as we continue to look toward
the future," Kaser said.


CSC advocates bringing Healthy


Families to Highlands County


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
ch ristophe: tuijfley @newsssun.com
SEBRING The
Children's Services Council
voted unanimously last week
to endorse the establishment
of a Healthy Family initiative
in Highlands County.
Healthy Families Florida,
which is headquartered in
Tallahassee, is dedicated to
helping parents raise healthy,
well- developed children by
providing voluntary, commu-
nity-based home visits for
one-on-one support.
The Florida organization is
modeled after the national
program, Healthy Families
America Initiative, that is
established in 38 .states, the
District of Columbia, and
Canada.
The goal is to reach at-risk
families and prevent future
problems before they begin.
Families considered at-risk


are those with a single parent,
or those where the parents are
not high school graduates, or
who have no housing, or not
enough money, or unrealistic
expectations, either for their
own future, or about their
children, or who suffer from
drug or alcohol abuse.
The home visits, which
must begin within the first
three months of a child's
birth, may continue for five
years, decreasing as families
establish a stable and nurtur-
ing home environment.
The early commitment is
necessary because research
has shown primary bonding
between parent and child has
typically been established by
a child's third month.
Families may enroll before
the birth of the child.
Healthy Families stresses
flexible hours to accommo-


date a family's schedule. Its
focus is on helping parents
understand child development
so they may have realistic
expectations, and encourag-
ing positive parent-child
inter-actions. The main goal
is to prevent cases of child
abuse and neglect.
In that effort, Healthy
Families helps parents hook
up with other supportive serv-
ices so other issues, like hous-
ing, food, job training, educa-
tion, health care, and emo-
tional counseling can also be
addressed.
Mary Foy, acting director
of human services for
Highlands County, said about
80 families have been identi-
fied as at-risk in the county.
She is applying for a
$296,000 grant to fund the
program and asked the coun-
cil for its support in bringing
it to the county.


Fielder is new livestock extension agent


By MATT MURPHY
imatt.imuirph y@ newvssun.com
SEBRING Lindsey
Fielder is the newest livestock
agent in Highlands County.
And for those who own live-
stock in the area, she serves
an important role.
"I extend knowledge from
the university and educate
people who own livestock or
want to own it," Fielder said.
In her short time on the job,
Fielder has already visited
several area ranches to learn
about the area. She is learning
about the issues ranchers face
that are important to them, as
well.
"That's one of my purposes
here, to visit ranchers and
help them," she said.
Fielder's position is part of
a partnership between
University of Florida and
Highlands County (along with
the U.S. Department of
Agriculture) called the
Cooperative Extension
Service.
As an extension agent with
UF, Fielder is able to utilize
new research coming out of
the college, and she can see
whether the new research
would work locally. She also

stock and the issues surround-
ing them.

gets the opportunity to edu-
cate area kids in the 4-H pro-
gram about livestock.
Fielder, who will turn 22
next week, grew up in
Clewiston. But she was


already familiar with the area
because of her parents: her
mother went to school here
and her father worked here.
Fielder started in her posi-
tion as a livestock agent on
May 16, a mere 12 days after
she graduated from the
University of Florida in
Gainesville with a degree in
animal sciences. She will
have even more to do next
year, as she will start working
towards a master's degree
from UF
Fielder encourages area
producers, livestock owners,
and others with questions to
contact her. For more infor-
mation about the extension
program or to contact Fielder,

Jamle Carroll
Lake Placid High School
Carroll plans to attend classes at South Florida
Community College in the fall. The only problem
was her 1991 Toyota Tercel with 200,000 miles on
it.
"This worked out perfectly because my car was
breaking down," Carroll said. "Thank God (I won
the car). It helped me out a lot I was considering
a new car before graduation even though I had very
little money."
Making the trip to SFCC's Avon Park campus isn't
easy when you don't have a reliable vehicle and live
in Venus. Her planned trip to visit her family in July
will be easier, too they live in Alabama.
"I won't have to worry about being stranded on the
highway," she said. "When they drew my name my
family and I were freaking out. It was very exciting."


Amanda Rodriguez
Sebring High School
"II was very exciting. You always run
your name in your head before it's
announced," she said. "I couldn't believe
it."
She plans on attending the Uiin,; l ;rv LI
Florida in the Fall, taking the car with
her.
"This has helped out a lot, even though
it's a blessing it puts it in their minds -
if they work hard they can do it," said
Vivian Rodriguez, Amanda's mother.
"That's the message (Alan Jay) is giving
and that's a good message."


Tyler Danzey
Avon Park High School
Danzey plans to attend Florida Gull Coast
University in Fort Myers, majoring in Biology to
eventually become a chiropractor.
"I was %.hocked, jumping up and down," he said
about winning the car. 'It still took me a few days to
realize I won something "
He was planning to leave his current rirl, a truck,
in Avon Park while he was away at school. Now he
has a car for college, which he said will save him
money.

SEBRING- The American
Party of Florida's executive
committee will discuss the
proposed Comprehensive
Immigration Reform Act cur-
rently moving through
Congress.
The APF has public meet-
ings at 6 p.m. the first
Thursday of each month at
Homer's Restaurant, in
Sebring Square.
American Party state chair-
man Tom Macklin introduced
a controversial ordinance last
year that would have
addressed illegal immigration
in Avon Park, of which he
was the mayor.
The city council defeated
the ordinance by a vote amid


a high-profile meeting attend-
ed by locals and opponents
bussed in from as far as north
Florida.
"This thing is literally
changing minute by minute
but we plan to do our best to
get people informed on the
provisions of the measure as
it stands at that time,"
Macklin said in a press
release of the current bill that,
despite President George W.
Bush's assertions otherwise,
many people argue offers
amnesty instead of immigra-
tion enforcement.
Also on the agenda for dis-
cussion are the additions of
additional planks to the
party's platform and Flag Day
activities.

Wheels for A's winners drive their prize


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy @newssun.conm
Giving away nearly $300,000 over the
course of a decade is a pretty big deal.
That's what the- Alan Jay Automotive
Network has done with its Wheels for A's
program.
For the past -nine years, Alan
Wildstein's family of dealerships have
raffled off more than 25 cars to graduat-
ing Seniors for their academic achieve-
ments, one to a student from each of the
three local high schools every year.
For each 'A' students receive during
their senior year, their name is put in the
drawing during graduation.
This year 95 students from Sebring
Chose to participate in the program with
a total of 1,046 A's, 75 from Lake Placid
i,


with 972 A's and 56 from Avon Park with
693 A's.
This years vehicles were 4-door Saturn
Ions, only three years old and still cov-
ered by the remaining factory warranty.
The Alan Jay automotive network
backed that up by adding their forever
powertrain warranty for as long as the
students own the car, said Randy
Leonard, operations manager for the
Alan Jay family of dealerships and coor-
dinator of the program.
"(The program) is dear to my heart,"
Leonard said. "It brings back memories
of my graduation, even though I didn't
get a car."
Years later, winners from the past have
called Leonard to thank him and describe


how the cars affected their lives.
Leonard told the News-Sun how a stu-
dent used his car to get to culinary
school. Without it, he said, the student
wouldn't have become the head chef at a
Naples restaurant.
Another student told Leonard how
much the car meant to him because he
used it to visit his parents. It made the
trip from Florida State, where he studied
engineering, to Avon Park possible.
"It's very rewarding," Leonard said
about running the program.
It's easy on the winners because the
Alan Jay Automotive Network covers all
the costs associated with getting a new
car all they do is sign the title and
they are handed a set of keys.

gram and a lot of them didn't
know what it was," he said.
"So the first step is to famil-
iarize everybody with what it
is and what it can do."
So Long invited Avon,
Park's municipal department
heads plus department heads
and others from around the
area including Sebring, Sun
'N Lake and Highlands
County to hear a presentation
from representatives of the
Environmental Systems
Research Institute on the
issue.
The GIS system is a collec-


tion of computer hardware,
software and geographic data
that can be used for such
things as planning distribu-
tion networks, responding to
emergencies and redrawing
boundaries.
Company spokesman Rob
Hofmann, who will be mak-
ing the presentation, said the
software has a myriad of dif-
ferent applications.
"The primary thing behind
this system is, it's primarily is
focused on keeping track of
information geographically
- by virtue of where it is,"
Hofmann explained.
The software provides a
detailed electronic catalogue
of what is located where, and
what workers may find once
they begin to dig.
Hofmann said the technolo-
gy is neither new, nor compli-
cated and that obtaining data
to plug in should be simple.
"A lot of cities have been
using this for 30 years. Avon
Park is getting more complex
and there are more projects
that probably are planned for
the future," he said.

Paratroopers carry

on tradition, gather

to share breakfast

First met for meal 20 years ago
News-Sun staff reports
SEBRING It's been 20 years since
three paratroopers met for breakfast at a
restaurant that is long gone. They shared
stories and each other's company.
Only one of the original three Joe
Noto of Avon Park is still in the area,
but a small group of paratroopers continue
to gather for social visits and breakfast on
a regular basis. This time at Bob Evans
Restaurant at 9 a.m. the first Saturday of
each month.
"Very seldom do we share 'war' stories.
Mostly we just talk and solve all the prob-
lems with the government. We talk about
families and occasionally something serv-
ice-related will come up," Noto said.
Most of the men have made more than
one combat jump, and most of this nation's
battles are represented by the men who
make up this elite group.
Paratroopers can be Airborne, Rangers,
Special Forces or Navy Seals. Another
group prior to 1950 as known as the Glider
Forces; they, like all jump qualified yeter-
ans, also are invited to join in the para-
troopers monthly gathering.
Robert "Smitty" Smith, one of the origi-
nal trio who now lives out of state, said
shortly after the formation of the breakfast
club, "Once a paratrooper, always a para-
trooper. Combat is a funny thing. It would
be real exciting if no one ever got killed. A
day in the foxhole is not for God and coun-
try. It's for your buddy on the left and your
buddy on the right. That's all you think
about. We are a select bunch. Paratroopers
have to stand up to the rigid training."
The meetings are unorganized. There are
no dues. No one is in charge.
If interested in learning more about the
paratroopers breakfast, call Noto at 452-
0106.

Habitat dedicates pair of homes
Special to the NewsSun '
AVON PARK The rain held off
Saturday as Highlands County Habitat
for Humanity dedicated its 101st and
102nd homes those of Jessica
Mallory and Danette and Gene Rushing.
A very large group of families and
friends gathered to brave the rain and
celebrate their new home, but they did-
n't get wet as the sun came out for a
brief time.
The Mallory home was sponsored by
Friends of Habitat in honor of Tim
Blackman, president of Highlands
County Habitat for Humanity.
The home of the Rushing family was
sponsored by Bagwell Lumber, repre-
sented by Brandee and Tobey
Shattenberg.

Caller claims spouse
was injured in Iraq,
requests personal data
Special to the News-Sun
The American Red Cross is
warning military spouses
about a new identity-theft
scam that targets family mem-
bers of deployed troops.
The Red Cross was alerted
of the scam earlier this
month, said Devorah
Goldburg of the Red Cross.
The scam involves a person
with an American accent call-
ing a military spouse, identi-
fying herself as a representa-
tive of the Red Cross, and
telling the spouse that her
husband was hurt in Iraq and
was medically evacuated to
Germany.
The caller then says that
doctors can't start treatment
until paperwork is completed,
and that to start the paper-
work they need the spouse to
verify her husband's social
security number and date of
birth.
It is hard to determine how
many spouses have been tar-
geted by this scam, Goldburg
said, as there are many ways
for spouses to report prob-
lems like this. However, one
confirmed report was enough
for the Red Cross to act, she
said.
"We know that it happened
to one person; it was probably
going to happen to others, and
we wanted to be prudent and


alert people," she said.
American Red Cross repre-
sentatives typically do not
contact military members or
dependents directly and
almost always go through a
commander or first sergeant,
according to a Red Cross
news release.
Military family members
are urged not to give out any
personal information over the
phone if contacted by
unknown individuals, includ-
ing confirmation that their
spouse is deployed.
In addition, Red Cross rep-
resentatives contact military
members or dependents
directly only in response to an
emergency message initiated
by a family member, the news
release said.
The Red Cross does not
report any type of casualty
information to family mem-
bers; the Defense Department
will contact families directly
about family members'
injuries.
It is a federal crime, pun-
ishable by up to five years in
prison, for a person to fraudu-
lently pretend to be a member
of, or an agent for, the
American Red Cross for the
purpose of soliciting, collect-
ing, or receiving money or
material, according to the
news release.
Any military family mem-
ber that receives such a call is
urged to report it to their local
family readiness group or
military personnel flight.

She said the county not Lykes
Brothers or Atlantic Blue should
lead, ensuring full collaboration.
The letter her peers approved incor-
porated the applicants' arguments as
the board's, Stewart said.
"We're neglecting our responsibil-
ity as a commission," she said. "I'm
very hesitant to send something to
the state that shows we don't under-
stand what's going on in our com-
munity."
Early in the discussion, Stewart
went on offense when she told the
board, "the four of you have not par-
ticipated in those meetings or in
those workshops" with Department
of Community Affairs.


"Essentially, what we're proposing are a couple of cities
in the south end of our county," Highlands County attorney
Ross MacBeth said of the Rural Land Stewardship
process.
Highlands County commissioners moved forward
Tuesday with a letter notifying the state of its intent to des-
ignate land owned by Atlantic Blue and Lykes Brothers as
rural land stewardship areas.

applicants, such as the sites' boundaries and resources.

July to further answer questions.
-Kevin Shutt


As an alternate member of the
county's seven-person Planning and
Zoning Board, Rick Ingler went to
three rural land stewardship work-
shops, two of which he saw Stewart
and Bates attend.


He said Stewart is "always" well-
informed on issues before the board.
But, on land stewardship, he said the
commissioners as a whole are ill-
prepared to move forward.

TESTS

who may have been exposed
to the disease and do a base-
line test. We're able to read
that within 48 hours.
"Then another test is done
12 weeks from the time of the
exposure," she said.
If the second test comes
back negative, people are
determined to be free of the
disease.
If it comes back positive,
patients are sent to undergo
further testing such as a chest
X-rays and a symptoms
check.
Jenkins cautioned that's not
foolproof, citing cases where
there have been people who
have had positive skin tests
and have not had active tuber-
culosis infection.
However, a study conduct-
ed at Stanford University
Medical Center showed the
standard test for gauging
whether a tuberculosis patient
is infectious actually may
miss as many as half the peo-
ple who are capable of trans-
mitting the disease.
In fact, researchers in San
Fransisco used DNA finger-
printing to track TB spread
and determined patients clas-
sified as non-infectious, actu-
ally gave rise to one-sixth of
the new cases studied.
Researchers revealed


although as few as five TB
bacteria may start a new
infection in the lungs, a sam-
ple needs between 5,000 to
10,000 bacteria per milliliter
to be detected.
It still is unclear how offi-
cials learned that Morales
may have been exposed to the
disease. However, Highlands
County Health Department
Director Paula Thaqi said TB
is a reportable disease -
meaning the information may
have come from any one of a
variety of sources.
Meanwhile, in the coun-
try's most-watched TB case,
hospital officials in Denver
say a third test on Andrew
Speaker has come back nega-
tive. Speaker made headlines
after making transatlantic
flights and possibly infecting
dozens of people with a
potentially dangerous strain
of the disease.
The new results may mean
the Atlanta attorney might be
allowed to make escorted
trips outside his hospital
room but would have to wear
a mask as there is still a
chance he could transmit the
disease.
The strain Speaker report-
edly has been infected with
has resisted at least 10 of the
14 drugs available for treating
TB.


FIRE

they have sovereign immuni-
ty," he said.
Buhr did leave the door
open a bit, saying a fee for
service like a fire assess-
ment might be different.
"If there's not an exemp-
tion statutorily, I wonder if
there's more authority to
impose that under those cir-
cumstances. That could be an
issue," he said.
Buhr said the solution
would be simple impose
the lien and "see what pops
up."
The action would not
involve a lot of buildings.
Avon Park City Manager C.B.
Shirey pointed to the
Highlands County Tax
Collector's satellite office and
schools within the city limits
as obvious examples of local
government-owned struc-
tures.
However, he said guidance
the city had received in the
past was that taxing sub-sets


of categories was not permit-
ted and governmental
properties were included with
churches and buildings owned
by non-profit agencies.
Mayor Sharon Schuler
called the situation unfair,
pointing to citizens who are
paying the yearly fee for their
properties, when there are
churches with rental and other
properties who are not paying
the assessment.
"Statutorily, there has to be
something that is more specif-
ic, that can give us some
direction so we can put the
assessment on buildings that
are not part of the actual
church," she said.
"I don't understand why it
has to be all lumped together
in the same class."
An attempt to find out
whether the problem was the
state statute or the way the
municipal ordinance in Avon
Park was structured reached a
dead end. A call from the
News-Sun to GSG Senior Vice
President Camille Tharpe to
help clarify the issue was
greeted with a "no comment."

"She said we don't talk to
the media," said a GSG secre-
tary who declined to be iden-
tified.
It was Tharpe who guided
Avon Park through the
process and has made an ini-
tial presentation to the city of
Sebring.
However, the discussion
may be moot. Under Avon
Park's ordinance as it is writ-
ten, there are no exemptions.
"You can't exempt anybody
until somebody makes a
motion to exempt them and it
passes. Right now, everybody


would pay the fire assess-
ment," councilman Doug
Eason said.
Eason asked that the fire
assessment be put on the
agenda for each subsequent
council meeting until the
upcoming budget deadline.
In the meantime, the coun-
cil instructed Buhr to get a
legal opinion on how the city
can legally charge govern-
mental entities and whether
churches and buildings and
non-profit in the same class
can be assessed under the cur-
rent ordinance.

sent the more-detailed letter," Ingler
said, rhetorically asking how the
state could fault the commission for
sending more information. "It's
going to take a lot of work from
every one of them to understand."
Ingler and other members of the
Zoning Board are expected to attend
a series of Florida Planning and

which will include guest speaker
Thomas Pelham, the DCA secretary
who oversees the stewardship pro-
gram.
Despite the workshops Ingler's
attended, he said he's just going to
take a lot of notes in Sarasota if rural
land stewardship is discussed.
"You have to know something
before you can ask intelligent ques-
tions," he said. "I don't think I'm

Changing Lanes: Not everyone flocking to 27


Some businesses leaving highway for downtown Sebring


* First in a two-part series
By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING While most local
business owners would prefer to be
located on U.S. 27, two have opted to
go against the grain by moving from
the highway to downtown Sebring.
Car-Medic Center left its highway
location and moved to 810 N.
Ridgewood Drive, and Appliance
Hospital is in the process of moving
to 152 S. Commerce St.
Though there is still work to do on
the new building, Car-Medic Center
owners Mike and Yamila Marrero are
carrying on with business as usual.
Appliance Hospital owner Jim Guy
plans to open up shop in his new
building Friday.

Car-Medic Center
Previously located at 555 U.S. 27
North, the Marreros set up shop
downtown April 9.
"The number one reason is the
space," Yamila Marrero said. "We
used to only have 15 parking spaces
for cars and here we have way more.
Also, we were in the same shopping
area with Tire Kingdom and the car
wash (Lakeshore Car Wash and
Quick Lube), and people would come
to us all the time to discuss matters
concerning the other businesses.
"In our new location, we know that
whoever comes to us is coming to do
business with us directly and we
won't be interrupted several times
every day by other people's cus-
tomers."
The Marreros also believe the
move will allow them to offer more
and better services.
"We are here for local people
we love the snowbirds; they are the


'We're here for the people, not for the money.'

MIKE MARRERO, Car Medic Center owner

Car Medic Center owners Mike and Yamila Marrero recently relocated from
U.S. 27 to Ridgewood Drive in downtown Sebring.


icing on the cake but here it is
more family-oriented and provides
easier access to local customers.
There are so many positive things
about our new place," she said.
The couple, who first opened Car-
Medic Center five years ago, began
with a clear vision for their business.
While they have been able to achieve
many of their goals, some have yet to
be,fulfilled.. .
"When we first started, we knew


what we wanted to do but were limit-
ed by space," Yamila said.
Having lost their first building on
U.S. 27 in south Sebring during the
2004 hurricanes, they moved further
north, relocating near Lakeshore
Mall. While business has been good
for them, the 2,000 square feet of
additional space afforded by the
building on North Ridgewood will
finally allow their original dreams.to
materialize.


"Before we couldn't'even sell tires
because of Tire Kingdom; now we
can do pretty much everything,"
Yamila Marrero explained. "We've
increased our services and will also
be offering car care awareness semi-
nars, something I've wanted to do for
a long time."
Services provided at Car-Medic
Center, Mike Marrero said, "include:
air conditioner repairs, alternators,
starters, water pumps, brakes, hoses,
batteries, belts, tune-ups, engine
overhauls, and transmissions. We
also sell new tires at cost (plus ship-
ping), and offer free diagnostics -
and we specialize in foreign cars," he
added.
Mike Marrero's enthusiasm for
what he does is practically conta-
gious.
"I do what I do because I love to
work on cars. Ever since I was a kid
I've loved working on them. My
favorite channel is the Speed
Channel I'm just addicted to cars.
What can I say?" he laughed. "My
wife gets sick of me talking about
them sometimes."
The seminars, which are expected
to begin sometime around the end of
June, will teach people especially
women how to recognize prob-
lems with their vehicle, Mike
Marrero said.
"A lot of times females are taken
advantage of by mechanics," he said,
explaining that the free seminars will
hopefully prevent this from happen-
ing to some degree. "We will have
food for attendants and will raffle off
a free oil change at the seminars," he
said.
Although he could be enjoying
retirement at this time in his life,

Tax Talk

Tax breaks for

working families
In today's two-parent fam-
ilies, both spouses typically
work outside the home as the
days of stay-at-home mother
have virtually disappeared.
Additionally, nearly three-
quarters of single parents are
raising children. This typi-
cally means that families are
paying for day care, or at
least, after-school care for
their children. Nowadays,
the annual costs for day care
can range from $2,500 to
$5,000 per child.
Politicians have been
aware of this and have
tweaked the tax benefits for
working families. The tax
benefits available to working
families include the follow-
ing:
An exception for each
child residing in the taxpay-
er's home. For 2007, the
exemption amount is $3,400.
"Head of Household" sta-
tus for single parents with a
child residing with them. As
"Head of Household," the
single taxpayer is taxed
based upon the "Married
Filing Jointly" tax brackets.
A credit against tax of

Sebring s Metzlaars receives


lifestyle coaching certification


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Diane
Metzlaars of Sebring has
recently been certified as a
Transitions Lifestyle Coach
after completing an intensive
training program led by Dr.
Shari Lieberman, best-selling
author and nutrition scientist.
In order to be certified,
Metzlaars was taught to
understand the body chem-
istry as it relates to food and
weight loss through a variety
of scientific behavioral jour-
nals and other studies.
The training went beyond
the science to help me under-
stand how to help people
change their behavior. So
many people have been failed
by diets that didn't allow
them to understand the sci-
ence behind why they lose


and why they gain it back,
Metzlaars said.
As a transitions lifestyle
coach, Metzlaars will be able
to coach others to effectively
lose weight through both a
scientific and psychological
approach.
Half the battle against
weight gain is the support
mechanism. Its easy to fail on
your own. But with a coach,
you have someone there to
help you understand why your
body plateaus and what you
can do to get through that,
Metzlaars added.
Transitions Lifestyle
System is a weight manage-
ment solution based on a low-
glycemic index diet and
includes a letter of commit-
ment along with a daily jour-
nal that requires the partici-


pant to log their daily meals
and exercise.
"I'm very excited to be able
to help others work towards
their goals. I believe that
through a good support net-
work and an educational
approach, anyone can manage
their weight and maintain a
happy, healthy lifestyle,"
Metzlaars added.
The Transitions program is
a complete weight manage-
ment system that includes
dietary supplements, prepared
meals, bars, shakes and sup-
port materials. The line is sold
exclusively through inde-
pendent Market America dis-
tributors.
For more information, con-
tact Diane Metzlaars at 202-

VA expanding successful

infection control program


Program will be
used at all 155 VA
hospitals in U.S.
Special to the News-Sun
Following dramatic success
at one of its medical centers
with reducing the infection
rate from a common, drug-
resistant, hospital-borne bac-
teria, the Department of
Veterans Affairs has expand-
ed the program to all
Veteran's Administration
medical centers.
Using simple, easy-to-fol-
low techniques, clinicians at
VA's Pittsburgh Health Care
System dramatically reduced
the number of cases of infec-
tion from Methicillin-resist-
ant Staphylococcus aureus at
their facility. MRSA is a dan-
:- gero6us infection' difficult to
eradicate, that can cause
pneumonia or infect wounds
and the bloodstream.
VA is a proven leader in
reducing hospital-acquired
infections, and results are
being replicated already
throughout the health care
industry, according to
Secretary of Veterans Affairs
Jim Nicholson.
"By expanding this suc-
cessful program to all of our
medical centers, we will
enhance health care and safe-


ty for our veteran patients,"
he said.
MRSA is primarily spread
through direct physical con-
tact with a person or object
carrying the bacteria.
Typically, it resides on the
skin or in the nose. According
to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention,
MRSA is one of the most rap-
idly growing infections asso-
ciated with health care facili-
ties, and is responsible for
more than 100,000 U.S. hos-
pitalizations each year.
In one of the program's
major strategies, VA health
care professionals use nasal
swabs to test each patient
being admitted, transferred or
discharged from a health care
facility to identify if they
carry the organism.
VA is now implementing
'fti -ife' i prevention pro-
gram at all 155 VA medical
centersactt'ss the cot-itry.
The four primary strategies
VA will use to eliminate
MRSA include obtaining
nasal specimens from all
patients when they are admit-
ted, transferred or discharged;
isolating all patients who test
positive for MRSA; empha-
sizing the importance of thor-
ough hand washing for every-
one; and cultural transforma-
tion to make infection control
a primary goal.

System gets poor grade

When 37 Lake Placid seniors and two parents
signed a petition in April asking that the valedictori-
an be replaced, it was not the first time student rank-
ing emerged as a problem in Highlands County
schools.
Worse, it won't be the last.
That is because the situation is the result of issues
larger than a single student's bad judgment.
Indeed, it is a national problem.
Our current emphasis on using grade point averages
to determine a student's worth has skewed the system
and harms our children.
For example, just at the time when students should
be taking on greater challenges, using their senior
year to prepare for what is coming next by taking on
more difficult work, too many are focused on inflat-
ing their numbers instead.
We have heard of students signing on for easier
courses, or rejecting advanced placement, which
requires passing a standardized exam, because of the
risk they might fail.
Now we adults bear most of the burden for allow-
ing this emphasis to develop as it has.
In a culture that is constantly grading the 100
best movies, the 10 worst disasters we can't be
surprised when the grade becomes more important
than the content of the course.
It will take time and the combined efforts of college
administrators, school boards, high school coun-
selors, teachers, parents and the children themselves,
to realign the system, putting education first.
The School Board of Highlands County can take a
first small step by doing away with the status of vale-
dictorians and salutatorians and converting to summa
and magna cum laudes. Why narrow graduation to
only two honors, when so many more of our children
are worthy?
Granted this is not a solution as grade point aver-
ages will remain the deciding factor. But by creating
more opportunity for scholastic recognition, at least
some of the pressure will be eased.
More important, school board members, school
principals and parents have to set the tone by emphasizing
content and work ethic. And we need to apply pressure on
higher education until colleges or universities put more
emphasis on essays and interviews rather than statistics.
It's the quality of the work and effort that will take our stu-
dents further, not a high GPA, which is only important in the
secondary school system.

'Anchor babies' philosophy
needs to go away
Editor:
I agree with Rep. (Tim) Mahoney
who wants to get away from a system
that allows, "Anchor babies." They are
born in the United States and become
U.S. citizens so (we) cannot force them
to leave. The illegal father and mother
are permitted to stay to take care of
their illegal children. Many illegal par-
ents with U.S. born babies end up on
U.S. taxpayer Medicaid.
Our congressional representative's
many friends and my solution should
be: do not grant automatic citizenship to
children born in the United States of
America, created by illegal aliens. Our
government says that 20 percent could
not come back because of their criminal
background and America does have
many bad illegal people in the United
States.
There is a need for foreign help espe-
cially farmers. Let the foreign and USA
governments find a legal identification
for workers' temporary stay in America,
no babies and then send them home.

Need to look at the future
without distorting the past
Editor:
As Ray Royce bemoans his taxes, the
Growth Management Report seems to
move in the direction of passing the
problem along to future communities.
Misery seems to be seeking company. If
the present burden of double tax bills is
a stressor, why would he want to pass
that burden on?
When carrots are dangled as entice-
ments for developers and when annexa-
tions are locked in, why would he not
see this as being viewed as a devious
and sinister plan? I do.
When council meetings get bullish
and dissenting opinions disregarded,
does he not recognize that the problem
is not lack of understanding by the dis-
senters but failure on his part to accept
their wisdom? When he tells me that he


'No robust democracy insulates its citizens from

views that they might find novel or even
inflammatory.

SANDRA DAY O'CONNOR
Former U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 2004


does not want me using his town with-
out receiving my tax dollars, is he
telling me to stay out and encouraging
me to do my spending elsewhere? I can
manage that. Does that benefit the small
businesses? Does he care about their
survival?
If combining utilities would be in
everyone's best interest, then perhaps
the report should address the town giv-
ing their utilities to a regional system in
place of the town pirating the existing
systems as a means to meeting the
town's needs. The pot needs not to call
the kettle black as the pot reaches for
the carrots.
How about a report that is not predi-
cated on tears of woe and that does not
draw upon other's resources as it
extends existing problems well into the
future? How about a report that sepa-
rates acquisition of water and sewer
resources and that allows those issues to
be addressed in their own forum? How
about a report that addresses the future
without distorting the present?

County should consider
Stewardship Process
Editor:
The county commission presided over
presentations about Rural Land
Stewardship Process, a very promising,
positive approach toward development
and preservation of rural real estate.
Three state representatives Charles
Gauthier, Department of Community
Affairs; Charles Aller, Department of


Agriculture and Eric Draper of Audubon
Society presented two hours of
enlightened discussion of how this
RLSP would evolve in protecting
Florida's natural environment and pro-
viding security of large land owners in
the use of their property in the future.
The county commission was asked to
consider initiating this process because
two large land owners wanted to pursue
this concept. It was necessary for the
commission to provide a letter to the
DCA indicating an interest in the
process, so the DCA could determine if
the land owners should pursue an appli-
cation to participate in the RLSP.
As noted, this program sounded quite
promising in managing rural develop-
ment. The mass development of dense
zoning in this state has caused great
concern about the loss of the natural
environment, which millions came to
Florida for, some 150,000 acres lost per
year.
Two examples were presented, one in
Lucy County, one in Collier. The one in
Lucy had a problem because the land
use was not spelled out. That will be
clarified in future projects. The one in
Collier County is Ave Maria, a con-
tained sub-division admired by all.
There was much discussion about
what the commission should do, indi-
cate an interest or designate this RLSP
program as the model to follow for our
rural development. The county attorney
cautioned that it would be essential to
modify our laws and regulations to
match the state statutes, that it would be
necessary to seek consultants in each
phase and sector of this program to pro-

AIDS remains a serious health

issue especially for youth


There is a serious health
issue within our communities
that is affecting the lives and
well-being of the future, and
Florida ranks second in the
country in this health issue.
A teenager told me that she
finds young men dishonest
when it comes to sex. She
related to me that she dated a
young man for nearly a year
without the knowledge that
he was infected with the
deadly HIV/AIDS virus.
She learned of his status
through a friend. In disbelief,
she called her friend a liar.
She even thought that the
friend was jealous of her
relationship. However, when
she confronted her boyfriend,
he confessed that he has had
the disease for years.
She said she saw her
young life flash before her
eyes. Frightened and angry,
she sought help at the local
health department. She has
been tested for HIV/AIDS;
her results are negative.
There is another teen who
has been experiencing peri-
odic episodes of herpes in
her throat. She wishes that
her mother, who worked in a
health-related field, had
forced her to listen about the
perils of sex. She said during
the outbreak of the disease,
she is unable to swallow
because it's so painful. Her
mother is now faced with the
medical bills.
Florida ranks second in the
number of pediatric AIDS
cases and third overall in the
number of AIDS cases.
Health experts say that het-
erosexual contact remains the
dominant transmission mode
of HIV for women. The
behavior of men is being
blamed for putting women at
risk for HIV/AIDS.

A disturbing study shows
that black men who have had
sex with men reported having
female sex partners. Seventy-
six percent of reported AIDS
cases in Florida are males.
Females account for 24 per-
cent.
The study also said that
approximately 100,000 per-
sons, or roughly 11 percent
of the national total, are cur-
rently living with HIV infec-
tion in Florida. Tampa is the
leading major metropolitan
area in the state with 10,038
cases of HIV, followed by
West Palm Beach (9,110),
Orlando (7,519), Jacksonville
(5,328) and Fort Lauderdale
(14,993).
Experts state that young
people think they are invinci-
ble so they continue to have
unprotected sex, but the sta-
tistics show that in 2004, 12
percent of reported new HIV
cases occurred in people
between 13-29 years of age.
AIDS-related illnesses are
the ninth leading cause of
death among young people
between the ages of 15-19
and the fifth leading cause of
death between the ages of
20-24. At the end of 2004,
7,507 cases of AIDS had
been reported in people

tect the county and property
owner in the on-going
process.
Like all new programs, it
was essential to determine
and assess the complexity of
this program before accord-
ing to the property owners'
request. The commission was
about to instruct the county
attorney to draft a letter
indicting an interest and con-
sideration of this program at
noon when three of us decid-
ed to go to lunch. We
returned 50 minutes later and
observed a number of people
in attendance leaving the
county building. We discov-
ered that it had taken 50 min-
utes to actually instruct the
county attorney to write that
letter.
The county commission
was already cautioned about
approving development proj-
ects because of two issues:
transportation and water. The
county has a $400 million
backlog in road needs and
the water issue is looming
large because of the pro-
longed drought and mass
development throughout the
state. Access to roads away
from U.S. 27 is a must. Mr.
Draper had indicated the
state was already addressing
the water issue by restricting
water drainage into the ocean
and gulf and fostering the
movement toward reservoirs,
one in Lucy County.
The RLSP has great prom-
ise; other counties are study-
ing it. The Highlands County
Board of County
Commissioners should too.

Taking a harder
look at prayer
Editor:
At first blush it would
seem that everything there is
to say about prayer has
already been said. After all
We've been a it for quite a
long time and some, of those
among us are fairly well
practiced. Still there appears
to be some areas worth
exploring, which motivates
me to continue.
The first major division I
have noted is those who
believe prayer should be
silent versus those supporters
of out loud prayer, like tele-
vangelists. Of course, pray-
ing on television wouldn't be
much of a show if it were
silent so perhaps this isn't a
fair comparison.
Television preachers also
usually close their eyes while
praying, whether to show
they have it down pat and are
not watching a teleprompter
or it just helps them concen-
trate is not clear. Some tele-

opinion of the News-Sun.

vangelists claim their power
prayers have greater impor-
tance than ordinary prayers
and can turn or cause hurri-
canes and even create disease
or otherwise harm those who
displease them. They also
tend to be rather loud,
whether to override more
softly offered prayers or
because they believe God
may be hard of hearing is
also not clear.
Speaking of prayer for the
hard of hearing, deaf mutes
pray with sign language,
which brings up another
interesting question, that is
whether prayer must be oral
or whether visual prayer is
acceptable (to God that is).
Come to think of it, silent
prayer is neither oral nor
visual but is a kind of mental
telepathy.
So already we have three
different kinds of prayers.
The adherents of silent
prayer have at least some
biblical support in Matthew
6:6. There we are instructed
to pray in a closet. This pret-
ty well knocks out public
prayer, at least the group par-
ticipation kind.
A further division exists
between kneeling and stand-
ing erect. Why this difference
I find hard to understand but
some implication of biblical
disapproval exists with
respect to kneeling in Judges
7:7.
Next comes the question of
language. I guess this wasn't
a problem until the tower of
Babel episode so the multi-
plicity of language was
caused by God and it isn't
fair if he complains about it.
There must be some elabo-
rate system for the receipt,
evaluation and granting of
prayer. With respect to the
receiving end of prayer there
are even more compelling
questions to be pursued.
Given our ever expanding

Sfun



Getting children to eat their fruits and
vegetables every day can be a challenge,
especially with busy schedules and sports
activities. Here are some helpful tips for
making five servings a day more fun for kids.

* Send healthy, easy snacks for before and after
practice, like bananas, carrot sticks, and dried fruits.

Add flavor with low-fat dips like salad dressings for
veggies and caramel or chocolate sauce for fruits.

Try grapes sliced in a salad or frozen as a cool treat.

Add fruits to cereal or yogurt for breakfast.

population and the popularity
of prayers. Since we are told
we are created in God's
image, it would seem that
God has only two ears and
couldn't possibly deal with
all the incoming prayers by
himself (or herself).
Of necessity therefore, a
bureaucracy must have been
created to receive prayers. A
first level question is whether
all prayers receive equal
attention or whether group
allegiance or other qualifi-
cations come into play?
If only certain groups are
entitled to have their prayers
considered, membership in
those groups must be of first
consideration. Then also if
one's conduct is a factor
some evaluation of the indi-
vidual praying must also be
examined. It is obvious that
this alone would require a
large labor force, a major
expenditure of manpower (or
woman power). I suspect that
large numbers of angels are
pressed into service and if
those people who think when
they get to heaven they will
lay around all day they have
another think coming.
Next the question of cate-
gories of prayers comes to
mind and suggests that some
further departmentalization
would be useful. There would
be one department to deal
with request- type prayers,
give me or get me or let me
have kinds of request.
Reasonableness issues arise
here as well as the worthi-
ness of the requester.
Then there would be a
complaint department, a
weighty kind of responsibili-
ty to examine charges that
God is not doing his job cor-
rectly, or not responding
appropriately or timely.
Then there is a thank you
quality, which could expect a
thank you or at least an
acknowledgment.
At this point I will stop
because it occurs to me that
others may have examined
these issues and even written
on the subject, perhaps Mark
Twain or even Voltaire so I
will research this point, less I
am accused of plagiarism.

of age or under.
Working families with
income below approximately
$40,000 (the 2007 dollar
threshold has not been set,
but for 2006, the amount was
$38,348) are eligible for the
Earned Income Tax Credit.
The credit amount is
increased to the maximum if
two or more qualifying chil-
dren reside with the taxpayer.
Additionally, organizations
such as the Early Learning
Coalition of Highlands
County (telephone at 314-
9213) may provide free (or
reduced costs) childcare to
parents of "at-risk" children
or needy families. The
Florida Department of
Children and Families (382-
2141) and the United Way
(800-881-8929) also have
programs to assist low
income families with child-
care.
Health insurance is another
significant issue for strug-
gling families. Parents may
qualify to get free or reduced
cost health insurance for
their children through the
state sponsored program
called Healthy Kids.
Eligibility for this program is
based on a number of factors
including income, so please
contact 800-821-5437 for
questions or download an
application at www.healthy

Garret Andrews
Army Pfc. Garret M.
Andrews participated in the
32nd U.S. Army Annual
Culinary Arts Competition at
Fort Lee, Petersburg, Va. The
competition is rated the
largest culinary competition
in America.
The two-week competition
involved Army soldier-chefs,
both active duty and reserve
components, as well as mem-
bers from other branches of
the U.S. Armed Forces. The
competitions allows service-
members to sharpen and
broaden their cooking, bak-
ing, roasting, and pouching
skills to stay on the cutting
edge of culinary techniques.
Their culinary skills ultimate-
ly benefit military service-
members eating in dining and
mess hall facilities and battle-
field kitchens serving soldiers
in combat zones.
The goals of the competi-
tion are to continually raise
the standards of culinary
excellence and professional-
ism in the Army's food serv-
ice training to the soldier and
promote growth in the culi-
nary profession with attention
to modern culinary develop-
ment. The competition also
promotes camaraderie, moti-
vation, and esprit de corps
among the soldiers and other
servicemembers, and provides
educational opportunities in
the culinary arts.
Competitors are awarded
certificates, medallions,
engraved plaques, and tro-
phies for their mastery of
culinary art in their particular
category. The winners
received recognition for their
efforts in culinary aspects of
ability, practicality, nutrition,
workmanship, economy, pres-
entation, creativity, concept,
skills, style, and techniques in
food preparation and manage-
ment. This year's partici-

Margaret Street. Unfortunately, I did-
n't meet the chef/owner, but his very
professional staff let me look around
and answered my questions. It's a din-
ner house with an open air plush feel-
ing. Starters and salads feature 18 selec-
tions including seafood crepes, plantain
encrusted shrimp and asparagus salad.
Well-known for their steaks, Michael's
also serves a stuffed veal chop, grouper
oscar and duck breast. I was intrigued
by the fondue menu available only at
the bar. Five different fondues are
served with an assortment of vegetables,
meats and bread. At $28.95, it was a
bargain for a light dinner.
I had dinner plans at Mallory Square,
the site of the Key West Sunset celebra-
tion. El Mason de Pepe, a Cuban conch
restaurant, revitalized an old cigar facto-
ry. Its red brick walls are decorated with
Key West sports figures in a lively com-
bination of greenery and brightly col-
ored tiles. The atmosphere is upbeat and


fun, Spanish music playing.
When the friendly manager, Jose Diaz
Jr., heard I had been sampling mojitos,
he quickly ordered one for me. Also
delicious choosing a winner would
be tough. He explained that the food is
Cuban with an American flair and
served me a traditional meal of garlic
roasted pork, a corn-wrapped tamale
with yucca, and yellow rice and black
beans. It was pure Cuban comfort and
with 117 choices on the menu, I will
definitely try many more.,
I was mojitoed out ... well, for today
anyway. There's always time for more
in the Keys. This is a quick list of many
restaurants that deserve attention.
Locals told me to be sure to try the
Eggs Benedict at Alice's and enjoy the
island feel of Blue Heaven. I'll be back
for sure. I got the "sand in my shoes" as
the conches say.

The Mojito
Like many things culinary, there are a
host of legends about the origin of the
mojito cocktail. The Bacardi Rum

Sebring Optimist Club
SEBRING Military,
past and present, have recent-
ly been honored. Members of
the Sebring Optimist Club
trust that all Americans truly
appreciate the sacrifice the
military is making to protect
this great land. The service
that many civic, social, gov-
ernment and religious organi-
zations are rendering on the
home front should also be
recognized.
There are major problems
and crises ahead and if the
record of those groups noted
above in Highlands County
are an indication of what is
happening nationwide, there
is great hope and promise for
the future. The American
people have risen to the
cause in any crisis, natural or
man-made.
The one great crisis in this
nation is the dismantling of
the family. A tremendous
effort is being made to assist
the youth of this community
and nation, resolving numer-
ous problems in family (lack
of), health, social, education-
al and recreational. The dis-
tinction between the term of
want and need is a vital con-
cept. The incidence of vio-
lence in sports is already a
major crisis.
Join an organization and
join those thousands of
unsung heroes who are giv-
ing back to their communi-
ties, especially the Baby
Boomers and seniors who
already possess the skills and
experience desperately need-
ed by the youth. When the
troops come home, let it be
to a stable society, an envi-
ronment in which they can
continue their pursuit of the
American Dream.

SEBRING The Knights
of Columbus in Sebring hold
weekly Bingo nights, reserv-
ing the proceeds from one
week of each month's Bingo
games to benefit a not-for-
profit organization.
At the Highlands County
Veterans Council,'s regular
meeting on April 17, the
Knights presented a $722
check to Betsy Waddell,
WAVES commander, to be
donated to the Paws for
Patriots campaign.
The Paws for Patriots is a
program that provides mobili-
ty to the members of the
armed forces. The program
was begun with the support of
General Tommy Franks and


provides life-changing sup-
port to the veterans with dis-
abilities. The dogs not only
provide companionship, but
are trained as "working"
dogs, to retrieve, guide, and
otherwise assist those veter-
ans with their daily routine.
The dogs are provided at no
charge to the veterans.
A therapy dog resides at
Walter Reed Hospital to
encourage the soldiers as they
learn to recover from injuries.
The local WAVES organi-
zation is one of the local
champions behind the Paws
for Patriots campaign.
For additional information
regarding the Paws for
Patriots, visit the Web site

State tourneys coming to Sebring


By DANIEL R. HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @newssun.com
SEBRING It's still a little ways
off, but for a week from July 6-13,
things will be a busy at the Max Long
Recreational Complex as two Florida
State Dixie Tournaments come to town.
And the heels of the FACA All-Star
Classic, Sebring will again become
quite the baseball hotbed.
District winning teams from all over
the state will be competing for the hon-
ors of being Team Florida, and repre-
senting the state in the Dixie League
World Series.
The competitions to be held in
Sebring will be for the nine- and ten-
year olds in the AAA Tournament along
with the Ozone Tournament for the 11-
and 12-year olds.
The AAA winner will have to beat
out 12 other teams for the chance to
head to Virginia for the World Series in
August, while the Ozone champion
must overcome eight teams to move on
as the Florida representative in
Alabama.
"All the teams coming in will have
won their district tournaments," Dixie
Board member Tim Baker said. "But as
the host, we have an automatic bid, so
we'll have a team in each of the tourna-
ments."
Which serves as a double benefit for
team Sebring, as in years past, two
teams would be made up for the district
tournament, dividing up the talent base.
With no district tournament victory
needed, and thus only one team made
up, the talent can be condensed into one
loaded team for both the AAA and
Ozone competitions.
"With it being here, it gives us the
home-field advantage as well," Baker
said. "We'll get to sleep in our own
beds."
But there won't be much sleep for the
Dixie Board, including president Bill
Westergom and vice president Robert
Cannon, however, as the hosting of this
tournament, with the nearly 20 teams,
will call for a lot of preparation and
busy work.
"It's going to be very busy, that's for
sure," Baker said. "It's a whole board
effort and any volunteers to help out
would be more than welcome."
Part of that preparation also has a
'weekend warm-up' this coming week-
end as the nine- and 10-year olds will
host nine visiting teams for a series of
practice games to get them more pre-
pared as a team against competition.
"We've been practicing and since
most of the kids have played together
before we seem to be doing all right,"
Baker, who also coaches the younger
team, said. "We should be pretty strong
with the teams at both age levels."
They will need to be, going up

against the best the state has to offer,
including perennial powerhouse
Bartow which, according to Baker's
estimations, has won it five times in the
last ten years.
The festivities for the State Dixie
week will begin with the opening cere-
monies Wednesday, July 6, while the
games will get underway late the fol-
lowing morning.
"The practices are going well and the
kids all have real good attitudes,"


Baker said. "But we've still got a while
to go before it gets started, so we just
have to make sure they don't get burned
out ahead of time."
He'd better hope that the board does-
n't get burned out as well, as a fun and
busy week of baseball is coming just up
over the horizon and Sebring, once
again, becomes Florida's baseball capi-
tal for a time.


WIN 5K sees 7 year-old winner


Courtesy photo
And they're off runners take off from the starting line to begin the WIN 5K Run at
Hammock State Park Sunday, May 20.


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Right from
the starting blocks and the
signal gun, the Highlands
County American Red Cross
had a great hit with its inau-
gural "Wellness is 'N'
(WIN) 5K Run.
Approximately 30 racers
gathered Sunday, May 20, to
walk or run the 5 kilometer
(3.1-mile) course that start-
ed near the entrance of
Highlands Hammock State
Park and wound around the
park's driving loop. The run
was set up and run by the
Highlands County Red
Cross, and sponsored by
Highlands Regional


Medical Center.
Doug Morton, 35, came in
first overall with a time of
0:17:39. Second place was
Michael Quigley with
0:20:23. Frank Dalto with
0:22:51 took third overall.
The women's division
winner was 7-year-old Katie
Carol, who was tenth overall
with a time of 0:32:31. She
ran with her family most of
the day, but her mother, Liz,
a regular distance runner had
her own time held down
because she had stopped to
look for her 'lost daughter.'
As it turned out, Katie had
moved on ahead and was
leading, rather than lost, and


Liz Carol's time of 38:17
was still good enough to win
her division.
Most runners used the
event as a way to help train
for upcoming races such as
the annual Sebring
Triathlon. Many enjoyed
exercising with family in the
shaded park. Participants
included such public figures
as Richard "Bo" Birt,
Director of Finance for the
Highlands County School
Board, who came in right
behind Dalto overall and in
age division; as well as
David Onsted, radio person-
ality for Cohan Radio Group

Cub fights,

Lebron's flight

and Billy's the

next Mike
Just when the Cubs' sea-
son seemed to spiraling
downward, it took a down-
ward spiral of emotion to
seemingly set things back on
the right track.
During Friday's loss to the
Braves, their fifth in a row,
catcher Michael Barrett
become the object of pitcher
Carlos Zambrano's ire and
anyone who's familiar with
Zambrano knows he has
plenty of ire to spare.
Barrett had just had a
passed ball and throwing
error, on the same play, to
help fuel a five-run inning
for Atlanta, causing the
feisty Zambrano to ask, with
gestures we all could see,
where his head was at.
This lead to an exchange
and a few swings between
the two in the dugout, and
eventually a one-sided con-
frontation in the clubhouse,
with Barrett wishing he had
kept his catcher's mask on.
It didn't have immediate
results on the team psyche,
no, it took manager Lou
Piniella and one of his
patented red-faced, dirt-kick-
ing, hat-kicking and apparent
umpire-kicking tirades (lead-
ing to a four-game suspen-
sion) that sparked the team
to end what became a six-
game losing streak.
As of Monday, the team
had won two in a row and
to think, all they needed was
to blow off a little steam to
get the ball rolling.
Speaking of steam, i.e. hot
air, the four years of media
hype touting LeBron James
as the next Michael Jordan
(after about 12 other "next
Jordan's" didn't quite pan
out), James had that one
transcendent game the might
actually make it so.
Having bore witness to
Jordan's career, I did see
some eerie similarities when
James' single-handedly took
over game five of the
Eastern Conference Finals.
Jordan didn't have James'
raw power, and James' still
settles for too many iffy long
jumpers, but they looked
very much alike in that they
were head and shoulders
above the collective talent on
the court.
You just knew you were in
the presence of astonishing
greatness when you saw
Jordan have those sorts of
games, and we now saw
what James is capable of.
To me, this actually moves
James ahead of Kobe Bryant
as Jordan's successor.
I would venture to say that
Bryant's supporting cast is at
least as good as James has
on the Cavaliers, if not better
- and yet it is Bryant whin-
ing about wanting better
players or to be traded away,
while James is making the
most of what he has around
him, and making them better.
And I'm sure it comes as a
huge relief to Gator Nation
that Billy Donovan thought
better of his situation and
rescinded on his decision to
jump to the NBA and take
over as head coach in
Orlando.

WIN
Continued from 1D
and local Red Cross board
member.
The gun fired at 4 p.m.,
Sunday, May 20, at Highlands
Hammock State Park. An
awards ceremony followed
the run at approximately 5:30
p.m.
The event raised a little
more than $1,000 for the local
American Red Cross, but it
also raised awareness for reg-
ular exercise and promoted
wellness.
Red Cross volunteers ran
the event, and provided run-
ners and walkers with
bananas, snacks and water.
Chet Brojek, former Avon
Park High School track
coach, timed the participants.

Liz Carol, left, poses with her daughter Katie, after the WIN
5K run. Each of the Carol's ran for the best times in their
divisions of the Red Cross sponsored event.


Half of American health
problems stem from eating
too much and not getting
enough exercise, Brojek said.


The event was designed as a
way to help show people easy
ways to get themselves in
shape and stay that way.

Correction
In the Sunday, June 3 edition
of the News-Sun, Avon Park
pitcher Johnny Sedlock was
misidentified in a photo cutline
with a story about SFCC's
baseball recruiting class.
The News-Sun regrets the
error.


BILLY
Continued from ID
Probably realizing that
while he could be a legend in
Gainesville with the program
he has already built and can
continue to build, his long-


term success in the
Association was a lot less
likely.
Maybe he read my column
in Sunday's paper, which
pointed out that very thing,
and decided he wanted to be
the next Mike Krzyzewski
that is.
