Phase II of Parkway construction to begin in July


By MATT MURPHY
matt.iilrphy@inewssiin.comn
SEBRING After years of
preparation, Phase II construction
on the Sebring Parkway project is
set to begin early next month.
Construction of the first part of
the project should begin right after
the July 4 holiday, said Elius
Nortelus, assistant county engineer
and project manager for the
Parkway Phase II construction,
adding that it could start a little ear-
lier.
Phase II of the Parkway will
eventually start where Phase I ends,
and will eventually connect the
existing Parkway with U.S. 27 by
way of Highlands Avenue. The 2.7-


Sebring drivers can expect some traffic snarls,
but officials trying to keep them to a minimum


mile project will consist of four and
five-lane roads, with seven new
traffic signals. While construction
of the entire phase will take around
three years, Nortelus said, the work
will not happen all at once.
Phase II construction is being
divided into smaller phases, the first
of which is scheduled to begin early
next month. Work will begin at the
intersection of South Commerce
Avenue and Highlands Avenue next
to the fairgrounds.
South Commerce, which current-


ly curves onto Highlands, will be
shifted so that it intersects at a 90-
degree angle with the road. A traffic
light will then be installed at the
new intersection.
The first phase of construction
will also involve the building of an
access road into the west side of
Sebring High School, running
behind the Children's Advocacy
Center building.
In return for obtaining rig
way from the school board
county agreed to build the i


road and a new parking lot for the
high school.
This segment of construction will
begin over the summer in response
to concerns about school traffic,
Nortelus said.
It is unclear how long the first
phase construction will last,
Nortelus said, because of unpre-
dictable weather patterns that may
be encountered during the current
hurricane season.
Once the first phase is completed,
the next phase of construction will
hegin at Youth Care Lane adjacent
) Fred Wild Elementary School.

News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The sign is
up and Highlands County's
newest hotel will welcome
its first guests this week.
The Residence Inn by
Mariott is set to quietly
open its doors on Tuesday.
In the meantime, trainers
from Mariott have been on
site, giving the hotel
employees an intensive
training course to make cer-

every need by the book.
"We have an incredible
staff," said general manager
Jo Haubrich, who has also
been the project manager
throughout the construction

Mercurio answers NAACP

questions about police


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK It was
what one NAACP official
referred to as a "great
beginning," improving rela-
tions with the Avon Park
Police Department and
some unhappy citizens.
The public NAACP gen-
eral membership meeting,
held Monday in Avon Park
at the Oasis behind Reeds
Motel, discussed concerns
on a number of subjects -
from possible harassment
issues to the lack of black
officers on the force.
"We addressed those situ-
ations because of the atmos-
phere that has developed
within the city. People are
complaining about the
police department and think


they aren't being fair,"
Highlands County NAACP
Legal Redress Chairman
Lester Roberts said. "I told
them I can invite the chief
to make sure he is aware of
these issues."
Avon Park Police Chief
Frank Mercurio started the
night by talking about situa-
tions leading to police inter-
action.
"There needs to be a rea-
son to stop a person," he
said. "It can be a missing
tag, broken windshield, or
running a red light ... when
we stop you, you have an
obligation to speak with
us."
Mercurio told the News-
Sun about the "beyond the

Three hot air balloons float into the sunrise early Friday morning from near Sparta Road
for a 20-30 minute ride to the Sebring Regional Airport. A group of kids from the Boys &
Girls Club program watched and waved as the balloons took flight. An evening 'Glow'
event was supposed to take place, but was cancelled due to lightning. Disappointed that
the event was called off, balloonists will be back next year to 'Glow' again. Saturday morn-
ing balloon rides were available for a donation, which will help benefit the Boys & Girls
Club in Avon Park.


Sebring gets new rescue boat


News-Sun photo by BARRY FOSTER
Sebring firefighters put up the Bimini top on the new rescue/patrol boat
they will share with Sebring police. Officials hope to have it completely
ready for use in time for the Independence Day holiday.


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Lake Jackson will be
a bit safer, now that a new 24-foot
Carolina Skiff has arrived in
Highlands County. The brand new
watercraft will be shared by the
Sebring police and fire departments
and will double as both a patrol and
rescue boat.
Sebring Fire Department Chief
Brad Batz and a crew of four took it
out for a shakedown cruise Thursday
and had rave reviews for the city's
newest piece of safety equipment.
"We took it out just after the storm
and there was still a pretty good chop
on the lake, but the boat was very
smooth in the water and there was no


splash-over. I don't think anybody
even got wet," Batz said.
Currently in its factory white, the
craft ultimately will carry the Sebring
Fire Department, Sebring Police
Department and the City of Sebring
logos meaning it will end up red,
white and blue.
That work will be done by
Graphics Design International out of
Stuart. They also do the logos which
appear on the Sebring Police
Department cruisers.
Classified as a DLV-238, the craft
is production-based model, but Batz
said it had been modified for it's role
in the municipal safety services.

New Web site offers gas price information for Lake Placid residents


lpfuelprices.com keeps
track of community's
seven gas stations

By MATT MURPHY
matt.,murphy@Onewssun.comn
LAKE PLACID Mack Payne
can't do anything about the price of
gas. But what he can do is tell the
public what those prices are thanks
to his Web site www.lpfuel
prices.com.
The site includes fuel prices from
seven gas stations in Lake Placid,
and includes rates for regular, mid-
grade, premium and diesel fuel.
The prices are updated five days a
week, Monday through Friday, with


updated rates posted by 8 a.m. each
day.
"It's directed towards the people
in Lake Placid, as kind of a public
service to the people in town,"
Payne said. "It's to help people save
money and find where the best
places are."
Payne compiles all of the informa-
tion himself as part of his job at
Cascade Spring Water. Payne drives
to each of the seven gas stations list-
ed on the site, and finds out which
station offers the cheapest prices so
that he can inform the truck drivers
that ship the water.
"I go around every morning and
physically look at the signs," he
said. "It's just information gathering
in the course of my job.


"It's a good way to get the infor-
mation out that I was accumulating
every day."
Payne developed an interest in
building Web sites in his spare time,
saying he was "tired of not knowing
anything about them."
After learning the basics of Web
design, Payne decided to merge his
work with his newfound hobby.
After he got the idea for an infor-
mational Web site, he asked around
to gauge potential interest in his site.
And the reaction was quite positive,
he said.
"Everybody I talked to said they'd
love it and bookmark it," Payne said,
"and before they ever bought fuel
they would check it."
From that came the


lpfuelprices.com Web site, which
has been up on a site hosted and paid
for by Payne himself for about six
weeks. He has spent much of that
time working out the kinks and
spreading the word about the site's
existence, he said.
Payne already has two advertisers
on the site Lake Placid Family
Restaurant and Signature Home
Styles and he's looking for more.
News of the site's existence has been
almost exclusively by word-of-
mouth, Payne said, although the
Family Restaurant does have a flyer
in the building.
While there are several Web sites
that give gas price information, none
of them include smaller towns like
Lake Placid, Payne said. Although


he's currently offering the site as a
public service, Payne does hope to
eventually make a some money for
his troubles.
As far as future advertising possi-
bilities, Payne hopes to get interest
from automotive or fuel-related
businesses but anything will
help, he said.
"If you have a lot of people book-
marking the site," he said, "you
might have people buying your
products."
If the site becomes popular
enough, Payne said he might expand
it to include gas prices in Sebring
and Okeechobee.
To become an advertiser on the
site, call 441-0479 or visit the Web
site.


Community loses 'a friend


to all mankind' in Kahn


n Obituary, 4A
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.conm
SEBRING Born and raised in
Sebring to pioneer parents, Abraham
Jacob "Bucky" Kahn will be remembered
as a "brother to all mankind."
Kahn, 79, died Friday after a bout with
cancer ravaged his kidneys and liver.
But, that didn't stop him from planning
his own funeral, said Marvin Kahn,
Bucky Kahn's younger brother.
"Through the many months of the ill-
ness he had, he was never ill," Marvin
Kahn said. "He was always planning for
tomorrow, next month and next year."
Visitation is at 1 p.m. today at the
Sebring Lions Club, of which he was a
48-year member. His funeral service fol-
lows at 2 p.m. with Rabbi David Levin
officiating with Catholic priest J. Peter
Sheehan and the Rev. Robert Walker
assisting.
"That's like Bucky," Walker said
Saturday. "He was his own man. He


always planned ahead."
Together, their parents were Sebring
pioneers. The Walkers picked fruit,
cleaned and maintained orange groves
owned by the Kahns. He said the Kahns
provided jobs for anybody who wanted
one, and were hard-working individuals
themselves.
"We grew up as children being
friends," Walker said. "They never treat-
ed us any other way."
Walker grew up with Bucky Kahn and
Kahn's sister Ruth Davis. Yet, he knew
nothing about their Jewish heritage as a
boy, he said, and doesn't know weather
that legacy of struggle factored into
Bucky Kahn's character.
Bucky Kahn was active with the
Washington Heights Concerned Citizens
and Highlands Ridge Museum (which his
sister chairs) in addition to his other pur-
suits.
"I'm going to miss him," Walker said.
"He was a brother to all mankind."

Harding leaves Heartland to build new hospital


Replacement to

be named soon
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevinshutt@newssun.com
SEBRING John Harding
is leaving Florida Hospital's
Heartland Division to serve in
the same capacity as president
and chief executive officer of
the hospital's Zephyrhills
branch.
Harding, who's been with
the Highlands County-based
Heartland Division about 10
years, announced his depar-
ture on Thursday to his med-
ical' executive team and told
his directors Friday morning,
Cathy Albritton, hospital
spokeswoman, said.
"It's not me, it's you,"
Harding told his staff, accord-
ing to a press release issued
late Friday. "Think of the
magnitude of what we have
accomplished here."
During his tenure, the
Wound Care Center opened in
Sebring, Wauchula's branch
of Florida Hospital became
the state's first critical access
hospital, the Cardiac
Catheterization Lab opened
and Lake Placid's branch
received "major" renovations
and an intensive care unit.


In addition,
36 patient
rooms were
recently added
in Sebring, the
Child Learn-
ing Center
Harding opened and
Harding re-
cently turned dirt for a med-
ical office pavilion.
"The new president and
CEO will inherit the best
health care team around," he
said.
Albritton said the
announcement of Harding's
successor is expected soon.

Zephyrhills' Scott Pipman,
who's retiring. Florida
Hospital Zephyrhills didn't
comment on the addition to
their staff.
Albritton noted that
Harding has been tapped to
lead the charge on a $121 mil-
lion hospital in Wesley
Chapel, and he's an "integral"
part of a new partnership
between Adventist Health
System and University
Community Hospital, Tampa.
During his transition to the
Tampa area, Harding is
expected to spend a day a
week at Zephyrhills. And he
will help to usher in his


replacement.
Albritton didn't know when
Harding's last day is.
Harding said his decision
wasn't easy, but the Lord is
leading him in a new direc-
tion.


"Adventist Health System
has been in Highlands County
60 years," Albritton said, not-
ing the anniversary is in
January and assuring the com-
munity that current projects
will continue as planned.

HOTEL
Continued from 1A
not her first project, but it has
been one of her easiest.
"We had such great cooper-
ation from the community -
the city of Sebring, the cham-
ber of commerce, Heartland
Workforce, who helped us
acquire our staff, and, of
course, DD Construction
Services everybody has
been just great," she said.
'This is ZMC's first hotel
under the Mariott flag, and
it's more than a simple lodg-
ing facility. Each of the rooms
are suite/apartments, meaning
they include a living room
plus a full kitchen with a
stove and breakfast area.
"These are not your typical
hotel rooms. You have your
choice of studio, one and two
bedroom suites," she said.
Each of the rooms features
a plasma television,
MP3/alarm clocks and other
niceties. In fact there are 250
different amenities in each of
the suites.
Guests also will be able to
enjoy a pool, a hot tub and an
exercise room located on the
property.
"Because we face both
Lake Jackson and Little Lake
Jackson, each of the rooms
has a balcony which over-
looks water. That's quite
unusual," she said.
Haubrich said the new
Residence Inn is a pet-friend-
ly facility and features a num-
ber of special services for
their guests as well.
"For instance, we'll do gro-
cery shopping if our guests
need it and we have a 24-hour
market here for those who
need that midnight ice cream
break," she said.
Each morning, the hotel
will offer a free breakfast buf-
fet for guests with both hot
and cold selections.
"We'll have all the meats,
potatoes, cereals, waffles and
the like," she said.
Nevertheless, Haubrich



PARKWAY
Continued from 1A
Youth Care Lane will become
the primary access road to the
school.
After these smaller projects
are completed, the plan is to
start where Phase I ended
(just past North Ridgewood
Avenue) and work towards
U.S. 27.
Also as part of the Parkway
project, repaving on Martin
Luther King, Jr. Boulevard
from Sheriff's Tower Road to
Arbuckle Creek Road will
begin, thanks to a state grant
received by the county.
The large-scale project will
mean route changes for many
drivers in and around down-
town Sebring, and Nortelus
said the project could be "dis-
ruptive" to drivers.
However, the county is
working to alleviate incon-
veniences in several ways, he
said, including working with
the city on detour routes,
doing parts of Highlands
Avenue construction at night
when there's less traffic, and
doing construction around the
schools during the summer
when class is not in session.
.Also, Nortelus added,
plans are to keep at least parts
of Highlands Avenue open
during construction by work-
ing on two lanes at a time or
using other methods.
The county is still working
with property owners and two
railroad companies along the
proposed Parkway route to
obtain right-of-ways neces-
sary for construction.
South Central Florida
Express and CSX both have
railroad lines that will run


parallel to or across from a
large part of the new project,
and the county has been in
discussions with both compa-
nies for some time, Nortelus
said.
Even though Phase II con-
structed hasn't yet begun,
Phases III and IV are already
planned out. Under the cur-
rent plans, Phase III will con-
nect the existing Sebring
Parkway with Avon Park,
while Phase IV will connect
the Parkway to Arbuckle
Creek Road.


said room nights will be very
competitive, with seasonal
rates set between $99 and
$159.
Haubrich has no doubts'that
there will be plenty of cus-
tomers when they open the
doors. She said they already
have been getting calls and
taking reservations both from
corporate interests and partic-
ipants in the Mariott Rewards
Program.
For those who are looking
to book rooms for next year's
Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring
- forget about it.
"They came by and saw the


sign that we were going in -
we're already booked," she
said.
Although Haubrich has
made a living out of managing
hotels from groundbreaking
to opening, she may stick
around here for a while.
"I've been a lot of places
and this was the easiest town
to become assimilated and
make friends. This was a most
welcoming place," she said.
Although the hotel official-
ly opens on Tuesday,
Haubrich said a grand open-
ing celebration is planned for
July 25.

BOAT
Continued from 1A
Among other things, it has
been fitted with a special door
which will allow rescue work-
ers to extract victims from the
water without having to lift
them over the side. That is
one of the modifications that
was done at Central Florida
Yamaha in Lake Placid.
"We took the door off to
test it and even with the chop-
py lake conditions, virtually
no water washed into the
boat," Batz said.
Central Florida also added
the powerplant a Yamaha
four-stroke 450 engine which
Batz said was both powerful
and quiet.
"You don't have to shout
over the engine noise like you
do with some motors and it
gets us up on plane like 'right
now' when you open it up,"
he said.
Batz noted the boat has a
small draft, meaning it will be
able to get into shallow water
should the need arise.
"It's a new hull style they
have just introduced it'll
go through as little as to 10 to
12 inches of water, plus the
width of the boat gives it a lot
of stability."
Batz said the low water
capabilities will be important
once the canal between Lake
Jackson and Little Lake
Jackson once again fills with
water.
"There are no boat ramps
on Little Lake Jackson," he
pointed out.
Able to hold as many as 16
people, the deck of the
Carolina Skiff has room for as
many as three backboards laid
side by side. Additionally, the
boat has a dive platform.
"We had them move the
console and change the
insides around at the factory

to accommodate things like
that," he said.
In fact, aside from a few of
the identification markings,
the boat was ready to go.
"All we had to do was
mount our strobe lights, put in-
our equipment and have it
decaled and marked," Batz
said.
In addition to normal res-
cue gear, the new watercraft
will be equipped with a GPS
and a sounder to help locate
underwater objects.
Thursday's tests showed the
electronics may be some of
the most useful equipment on

PieRats performance


- an adventure to treasure


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING Moore
Performing Arts and
Restoration Church of the
Highlands are proud to
announce the opening of the
original PieRats, a musical
production, supported in part
by Heartland Cultural
Alliance and Florida Arts and
Culture.
Written by Chris Bates, of
Arkangel Productions, with
music by Kyle Tolar, and per-
formed by a cast of local chil-
dren (ranging in age from 4-
16 years old), this play is sure
to entertain all ages.
"It's about kids who love
pies and stumble upon a
secret door in the basement of
Grandpa's house that leads
them to a fairy tale world
called Pie Land," said produc-
er Rachel Moore. "In Pie
Land, they have to go through
scary Willow Woods where a
Fallen Pixie lives and they


discover strange ingredients
like Pie Crust Plants, Turtle
Toes, and Luminous Mallows.
The group of pixies who live
there are 400 years old, but
still kids. The pixies have
preservatives and nothing
ever spoils in Pie Land."
The moral of the story, said
director Larry Moore, is "to
commandeer your dreams at
all cost."
Of the play's title, Rachel
Moore said, "Pirates, in gen-
eral, are very popular right
now, and to do a pun off of the
word is a real catcher for the
kids."
Although it is 50 minutes
long, the play is "fast mov-
ing," Rachel Moore said.
"There are a lot of younger
children this year. We have a
7-year-old who has memo-
rized 20 lines it's really
amazing. And a 4 year-old
(Barbara Ann Edwards) came
on board recently, so we
adopted her she has her

Director Larry Moore talks to Ronald Cathey Thursday
evening during a dress rehearsal on the set of PieRats at
Restoration Church of the Highlands in Sebring. The play is
about a group of pie loving kids and an unexpected adven-
ture.


own cameo performance."
PieRats will demonstrate to
the public what the cast and
crew have learned during
their three weeks of hard
work and fun at Moore
Performing Arts, Inc. Summer
Theatre Camp.
Characters like Baguette
(Lyndsey Reck, 11), Twiggs
(Moriah Finney, 7), and
Gravy Jones (Jonathan
Finney, 9) who only likes pot
pies, along with many others,
are sure to make audiences
smile during this whimsical
and creative drama.
According to a press
release, "If you like Hook and
Willy Wonka and the
Chocolate Factory, you'll love
PieRats."
"I think it's great to have
people as young as 6 years old
up there doing what they're
doing with their talents,"
Music composer and lifelong
resident of Sebring Tolar said.
"To see young people identify
with the gift within them, and
Moore Production providing
an outlet for them to do that in
Highlands County, is just
great."
In keeping with his practice
of making his music unique
and matching it to the person-
ality of the character being
portrayed, Tolar said of
PieRats' music, "I wrote one
song for the play that has a
pirate sound to it; and when
they go into Pie Land, I made
one with a 'Disneyland-type,'
magical, enchanted sound."
Performances are sched-
uled for 2 p.m. Wednesday,
June 27, through Friday, June
29, and 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Saturday, June 30. Tickets are
$5 each and can be purchased
in advance at Restoration
Church, 8475 Sparta Road, or
at the door.
A discounted rate of $3 per
ticket is available for school
groups who attend
Wednesday, Thursday or
Friday with advanced regis-
tration. Call 402-2121.

Highlands County Commission Agenda
June 26, 2007


News-Sun photo by TREY CHRISTY
Avon Park Police Chief Frank Mercurio speaks with members of the local Highlands County
branch of the NAACP Monday evening.


NAACP
Continued from 1A
license plate" program. It
goes beyond the traffic stop
by looking at other crimes
that could have been perpe-
trated by an individual.
Officers routinely ask drivers
if they have any firearms or
narcotics, and if a K-9 unit is
in the area police can use
them without permission.
"We make a lot of arrests
with the use of our K-9,"
Mercurio said.
The 27-officer-strong
department currently has
three K-9s on staff one in
training and two in service.
Another query from citi-
zens asked why individuals
are being pulled over when
riding bicycles at night.
Mercurio answered the
question by stating the law -
that after dark, bikes are
required to have lights on the
front. He continued explain-
ing why bicycles are routinely
pulled over for violating this
law they are popular with
drug dealers and burglars.
"Most north side burglars
use bicycles," he said.
S='-.Stit-l. -Mercurio-r's,- depart-
ment doesn't have\nn\ black
officers there have only


been two since he joined the
department 10 years ago.
"I cannot compete with the
salaries with the other agen-
cies paying handsomely for
educated African American
police officers," he said. "We
would love to have some
good African American candi-
dates, but we have been
unsuccessful ... there are
openings we advertise and we
try to draw from a variety of
locations."
As little as one year ago,
the department did employ an
African American officer, but
he left for personal reasons.
In fact, APPD officers are
anything but homogenous,
ranging from age 55 with 30
years experience to 23 with
six months experience. The
department employs six
Spanish-speaking officers and
about 15 female employees.
Mercurio said he has no
prejudices but one.
"The only people I'm prej-
udiced against are criminals,"
he said. "If you commit a
crime, we will arrest you and
make sure we have the right
person ... do we make mis-
takes? Yes, but this is a
department that cares a great
-deal about the community;'' -
The meeting was cut short
after an hour, but Mercurio


said he felt he touched the
theme of the questions,
explaining why certain things
happen and answered those
questions "truthfully ... and to
the best of my ability."
The 30-plus questions were
compiled by NAACP mem-
bers and given to Mercurio a
few days in advance. Due to
time constraints, only ques-
tions on the list were allowed
to be asked, and only five
minutes after Highlands
County NAACP President
Brenda Grey opened the
meeting to questions from the
floor to a willing Mercurio,
time was up.
"We gave him that list and
he picked out the ones that he
felt were most important,"
Roberts said. "But we are
going to give him an hour and
a half next time."
Next time will be Tuesday,
Aug. 28, at the Avon Park
City Council Chambers. That
night will see Mercurio field-
ing questions from those in
attendance rather than from a
sheet prepared for him.
Mercurio had no opposition.
"I don't mind being put on
the spot." he said at Monday's
meeting. "After 28 years- as: a
police officer, I'm on the spot
a lot."

John Harding to lead charge on a
new Hospital in Wesley Chapel.


Visionary, changed the face of
healthcare in the Heartland.

Sebring, Florida John R. Harding has been named the President and
CEO of Florida Hospital Zephyrhills. In addition to his CEO responsibili-
ties, Harding will be a key leader of a newly-formed joint venture compa-
ny between Adventist Health System and University Community Hospital
in Tampa. Harding will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to build a
new $121 million hospital in Wesley Chapel.
"John is an experienced and highly capable chief executive," said Mike Schultz, Regional Vice President of
Florida Hospital Orlando. "During his 13 years of healthcare leadership experience in Florida, he has a proven
history of building excellent relationships with physicians and the community he serves. His understanding
of the importance of quality and patient safety will provide Florida Hospital Zephyrhills with solid leadership
for continued growth and a positive impact in the community."
About his departure Harding commented, "This community graciously welcomed my wife Carol and I. We
will take with us life long friendships. It was not an easy decision to leave, but the Lord is leading me in a
new direction."
During the announcement to his staff, Harding stated, "It's not me, it's you, think of the magnitude of what
we have accomplished here. The new President and CEO will inherit the best healthcare team around." A
smooth transition is expected and a new successor will be announced soon.
Harding is a long-standing community leader serving as a Board Member for
The SFCC Foundation, the Economic Development Commission, Y.M.C.A. and Samaritans' Touch. He has
given years of service to the Avon Park Noon Rotary, Junior Achievement, United Way, area Chambers of
Commerce as well as several healthcare boards.
Harding served as president and CEO of Florida Hospital Heartland Division for ten years. In that position he
oversaw the growth of the divisions three campus' in Sebring, Lake Placid and Wauchula. These communi-
ties have benefited greatly from the visionary leadership of Harding.
During his first year Harding opened the Wound Care Center in Sebring. That year Florida Hospital Wauchula
became the first Critical Access hospital in the state of Florida. In 1999 he cut the ribbon for a Cardiac
Catherization Lab in Sebring. In 2000 Florida Hospital Lake Placid underwent major renovations and saw
the addition of an Intensive Care unit, Also that year, Sebring witnessed major growth with the opening of
the Center for Sleep Studies.
During his tenure, Harding oversaw three expansions to the Sebring Emergency Department and the addition
of Fast Track Care, proving his dedication to meeting the needs of this growing community.
Most notable was Harding's commitment to invest in the most advanced technology. In 2002, he brought
the Heartland an unprecedented level of quality radiology services with the opening of the Seascape Imaging
Outpatient Center and the addition of PACS, Picture Archive Communication Systems. Later he added a
Mobile MRI to serve Lake Placid and Wauchula. He continued to expand technology and in 2005 opened a
second location of the Seascape Imaging Outpatient Center in South Sebring.
In the last two years major financial commitments have been made with building of Sebring's additional 36
patient rooms, the implementation of electronic medical records (iConnect), the opening of the Child
Learning Center, the ground breaking of the new Medical Office Pavilion and most recently, the announce-
ment of the new Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine.

They may take a lickin', but




Carter keeps them ticking


TOWFIN IT

WITH TUFFLEY

Christopher Tuffley

"I've always looked at
clocks as the heart of the
world," Kenneth Carter said
as we walked across the roof
of the school district's new
kindergarten center in
Sebring.
He had just removed the
tower clock's mechanism,
which needed repair, and we
were heading back to the
safety of solid ground.
Time regulates our lives is
what he was saying, so we
wake up, work, eat and sleep


by the clock.
Certainly in downtown
Sebring, if you bother to lis-
ten, you can hear a siren sig-
nal the course of the day: 7
a.m. to wake up, 9 a.m. to
start work, Noon to go to
lunch, 1 to p.m. get back to
work, 5 p.m. to go home and
9 p.m. to get into bed.
I've been told these signals
are geared to an agricultural
work place, a hold-over from
days when a worker couldn't
tell time, let alone owned a
watch.
On reflection the subject
seemed deeply philosophical;
I mean how we humans
measure and use time. Which
was fine, because it distract-
ed me from the fact we were
high in the air, and I've
always been better at climb-
ing up than climbing down.
I discovered while visiting
Carter that clock repair work
is low key and soothing, it's
the getting to the clock that
can be a high (pun intended)
adventure.
Take the case of the tower
clock, which hadn't worked
in four years.
First, I had to get permis-
sion to climb onto the roof at


Here Carter is applying oil to the bushing of the electric
motor that powers the tower clock. The bushings have seized
up and need to be loosened. Rust and corrosion are com-
mon problems. Carter was going to have to disassemble the
motor, and the mechanism in order to hand clean all the
parts.


all. The construction at the
kindergarten center is being
done by A.D. Morgan, and it
turned out the company takes
safety regulations very seri-
ously. It took several phone
calls and the school board's
go-ahead to clear me. Then
Dawn Balsamo, one of the
supervisors, accompanied me
to the top.
Actually, it turned out to
be quite a climb. First we


negotiated a 12-foot perma-
nent ladder, designed to pro-
vide access to the roof. It was
a little harder to get to than
usual, because the floor all
around it had been prepped
with linoleum glue.
Coming out through a trap
door onto the lower roof, we
then had another 4-foot lad-
der to climb. Then we walked
across the wide expanse of
aluminum roofing, which

labels every wire and part of every clock he repairs.
Attention to detail is key. His wife Sandy taught him to use
egg cartons to keep clock parts organized.


buckled and moved slightly
as we walked from the back
of the building to the front.
The good news was we were
nowhere near the sides and
the roof was almost flat so
we had the illusion of safety.
Then came the hard, awk-


ward part.
I had to climb up into the
tower. The entrance is a sim-
ple rectangular hole, from
which a piece of plywood
had been removed. Carter

An old-time


grocery store

By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING Diane and Gary's
Seafood, Steaks and Sauces is one of the
few remaining old-time country grocery
stores in Highlands County. Here cus-
tomers are treated with the friendliness
of the nearly extinct "mom-and-pop"
courtesy of days gone by.
"We try to do business the way it was
done 20 or 30 years ago," said owner
Gary Susdorf. "We're like the old neigh-
borhood grocery store. We know a lot of
our customers on a first-name basis."
Although they are currently holding a
grand opening, the Susdorfs have been in
business for years and at their current
location (12141 U.S. 98) since July 20 of
last year.
"We started out on U.S. 27 across from
the Sebring Diner as 'Diane's Produce'
in 2003," Gary Susdorf said. "There we
sold strictly produce and we've since
begun carrying seafood, meats and a lot
of other things. So we moved here."
The country store they own and oper-
ate now carries a full line of meats
including steaks, pork, chicken gator tail
and frog legs; a full line of seafood
including salmon, shrimp, lobster, scal-
lops, mahi-mahi, tilapia, snapper, crab

standard produce, a line of dairy prod-

cheeses; as well as raw and unprocessed
orange blossom and wildflower honey. A
line of specialty sauces is also available.
"These are sauces that are only found
in specialty stores," Gary Susdorf said.


"We have Old Ray's Award-Winning
Sauces, Gator Hammock, Budweiser and
Jim Beam Kentucky Bourbon sauces."
After relocating, the Susdorfs immedi-
ately needed more room.
"No sooner than we opened, business
warranted expansion," Gary Susdorf
said. "We recently were able to take on

TUFFLEY
Continued from 9A
was already working inside because of the
time it took me to join him my fault by the
way. I should have announced my intentions
several days before.
Anyway, the hole was about chest high
with no steps or foot holds, so I had push
myself up, as if I was getting out of a swim-
ming pool.
There have been times doing this feature
that I have had to let my dignity go the way
of the wind This assignment was one of those
times as I heaved up like an out-of-water
whale, squirming forward in the thick dust,
until I could get enough of me inside to strug-
gle to my knees.
The inside of the tower was anti-climactic
and a little disappointing. I'd had visions of
large gears and a scene out of Harold Lloyd
movie. No such luck.
Oh the clock face, backlit by the sun, was
pretty impressive, but as for the rest of it -
well, it seemed tiny.
The mechanism was not as big as a shoe
box. It had front and back plates, but was
open on all sides. A spindly thin shaft, about
a foot long (maybe) ran from the front plate
of the mechanism to an inset in the clock face
where it turned the clock hands (or would if it
was working).
But the mechanism sat on a plain concrete
block, which sat on a roughly finished wood-
en platform. It seemed woebegone and incon-
sequential, all alone in the dark.
To light the face from the inside, one of
those florescent stick lights encased in plastic
had been attached to a board. Both light and
mechanism are powered by electricity, their
cords running to a plain switch plate attached
to a wall. The tower was dark, dusty and


totally unromantic; the scale of the mecha-
nism so small it was overwhelmed by the
space.
Then something surprising happened. I
mean when we left the site and returned to
Carter's workshop, which is squeezed into
one half of his garage.
The space, while small, is extremely well
laid out, clean, brightly lit and organized. It's
kind of like some boats I've known where
every inch of space is used, and everything
neatly stored. In other words, Carter's work-
shop is just the opposite of where we had
been. I liked it right away.
And the magic is that the mechanism,
which had seemed paltry and uninteresting in
the gloom of the tower, turned out to be a
complex work of precision gearing, wonder-
ful to look at.
One of the things Carter did in the time we
were together, and it happened more than
once, was he would refer to the clocks, and
their owners, as patients. I found this endear-
ing. What better proof of a true connection
than to think in terms of healing living things,
rather than fixing machines.
Which brings us back to the philosophical,
and how closely we connect clocks to life.
Maybe it's the ticking that sets a clock
apart it can soothe a fretful puppy or baby,
for example.
And, of course, many clocks are inter-
twined with family history.
"I've always looked at the clocks as part of
my customer's family," Carter said, "because
most of them are treated that way by my cus-
tomers, handed down through generations.
Plus, they have a history which I dearly love
to listen to.
"Sometimes," he added, "even a quartz
clock can be precious to people who develop
a deep attachment."
Because clocks are so important, and older

This is the mechanism from the tower clock in the
new kindergarten center. Extreme upper left is a
shaft, here disconnected from the chain drive,
transfers power to the gearing. It is timed to turn
one revolution an hour, so the parts move very
slowly. Only the large gear at the bottom actually
turns the hands on the clock. The other gears
transmit the power, while keeping the movement
in sync. The shaft that runs to the clock face can
be seen lower right. Corrosion and rust are evi-
dent and will have to be removed by hand.

ones often a challenge to bring back to life,
Carter takes his time.
"It is a step by step-by-step process,' he


said. "I tell (customers), 'I'm in no hurry, I
hope you're not.'"
Then he grinned and added, "They tell me,
'It hasn't worked in 25 years, can you have it
ready next week?'"
Part of Carter's passion comes from the
fact his work began as a hobby, done for the
joy of doing. He is a retired firefighter, a
Florida native from Miami, who arrived here
via North Carolina. His wife, Sandy, grew up
spending vacations in Lake Placid because
her uncle was August Tobler, which is how
they knew the area and ended up here to be
nearer to their children and grandchildren.
Most clocks need only routine maintenance
to stay healthy, Carter said, but that should be
done on a regular basis. Heat and cold are not
the problem, as long a clock is kept in one or
the other.
It is moisture that is a villain. With
Florida's humidity, clocks should be cleaned
and oiled and regulated about once every
three years, he said.
Carter emphasized that it is most important
to keep a clock level. He also strongly
warned against using any products like WD-
40. That oil has a negative charge, he said,
and while it is excellent for many things, in a
clock it will attract dust, another villain.
Carter doesn't recommend people repair
their own clocks. It's not that he is looking
for work, it's that a person can quickly get in
over his head. He told of one woman handing
him a paper bag filled with parts, no two con-
nected. Her husband had taken the clock
apart, and couldn't get it back together.
Healing that clock had been like working
on three-dimensional jig-saw puzzle, without
a picture cover to guide him.
But it seems only fitting that the clock
should be as complex as time.

community and offer more
products (thus the 'grand
opening')."
Unlike at other grocery
stores, people who shop at
Diane and Gary's always
know what to expect when it
comes to prices.
"We don't run sales we
don't believe in the words
'sale' and 'free,'" Gary
Susdorf said. "Our prices are
low every day. We. want to
Stake away that hard-sell way
of operating and run a soft-
sell store where people


always get a fair shake. If
something goes up, we still
try to hold out with our prices
and wait for the wind to blow
over. We hold our prices down
unless we absolutely have to
raise them. We don't like peo-
ple to come in and get a big
surprise."
Prices at the Susdorf's store
are mostly lower than other
stores in the area, he said.
"Sometimes our meats may
be a couple dollars per pound
lower and other times they
might be a little higher than
our competitors, but we are
very competitive with our
prices," he said. "The other
day at the grocery store I


noticed that New York Strips
were a dollar lower; but
everything else was $4-6
higher. That's because we
don't run sales."
Additionally, all meats are
vacuum sealed for freshness
at the store.
"Some of our customers
will only buy their meats from
us," he said.
Although tomato prices
may fluctuate significantly at
other market places, the
Susdorf's always offer them
at a rate of three for 99 cents
"We like to be flexible with
the way we run our store, not
rigid like other places," Gary
Susdorf said. "Whien


Hurricane Charley came
through, my wife went to the
grocery store and they would-
n't even let you come in. You
had to tell someone outside
what you wanted and wait
outside for them to go get it
for you. We've come back and
opened the store for people
during off hours who were
throwing a big barbecue or
party."
Gary Susdorf credits his
wife for public relations.
"Diane is a conversational-
ist," he said. "She loves to
talk to the customers; she is
so friendly. Sometimes I have
to say, 'Hey, we need to get to
work here,'" he laughed.


Terry Smith of Sebring has
been shopping at Diane and
Gary's since it opened and has
recommended the market.
"The steaks and shrimp are
excellent. The steaks are out
of this world and so are the
shrimp it's neck-and-
neck," Smith said. "It's a
unique little place and every-
thing is good with reasonable
prices. Gary and Diane are
just great folks."
Although, as mentioned,
the Susdorf's like to retain the
right to operate with flexibili-
ty, as a rule, the hours are
Monday through Friday from
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and
Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4


p.m.
"We hold to those hours,
but sometimes stay open
later," Susdorf said, recom-

How shall we cut the budget? Let us count the ways


Well, the good news is, as near as I
can figure, the state of Florida wants to
cut our taxes. The bad news is they
don't want to be the ones swinging the
hatchet.
Let me try to explain this in layman's
terms. (That's because layman's terms is
the only way I can understand it). The
state legislature has passed a tax reform
package that requires local governments
to hold property tax rates at 2006 levels
and then reduce them. There is a way to
override this if a local government real-
ly wants to, but I couldn't find it in the
search I did on this.
It's as if I told you I was going to
lose 30 pounds by making you diet. You
would get stuck with the celery and car-
rot sticks and I'd get all the credit.
I understand that some local govern-
ments in Florida have taken property
taxes to dizzying heights. It's a major
source of funding for local govern-
ments, and I haven't been involved with
a government yet that didn't like fund-
ing.
Since, unlike the federal government,
our local elected leaders try not to spend
more than they take in, there are going
to have to be cuts. Highlands County
administrators say that the local budget
will have to be cut by $1.7 million.


Laura's
Look

So, as local radio talk show host
Barry Foster has asked recently, where
shall we make our cuts? (Note to self:
find out if Barry belongs to an organiza-
tion that charges for being mentioned in
the paper and if he does, mention him a
lot more often).
I haven't called in with an opinion
because to be honest, budget-cutting is
not my gift. It's bad enough that I have
to stick to a budget, given that I have
not yet made the New York Times best-
seller list and luxuries such as food and
shelter keep me from buying all the
books and chocolate I want to get my
hands on.
However, as a citizen of our county, I
suppose I should take a crack at some
suggestions to bring the budget down,
now that Tallahassee has given our com-
missioners no choice in the matter.
First, let's talk about the calendar that
goes out from the commission every
year. I don't know about you, but I have
never, in all of my years here, said to
myself, "Self, we need a calendar from
our county commission or it will be the


end of the world as we know it." Sure,
it's not that much money -
Commissioner Barbara Stewart said it
was something like $30,000 but a
few thousand here, a few thousand
there, pretty soon you're talking about
real money.
But there is another side to this we
could think of ways to raise money to
make up the shortfall. Maybe we should
make it a law that anytime a state legis-
lator's name is mentioned in the News-
Sun, they have to pay an amount to sup-
port our government. They like having
their names in the paper, don't they? So
let's have them pay for the privilege.
After all, these cuts were their idea, let
them help make them work!
Of course, some of you readers may
have better ideas than this. Why not
share? Email me at
bookwormlady@earthlink.net with ways
you think we can cut $1.7 million from
the local budget. I'll look them over and
share the best ones in a future column.
Until then, perhaps the county work-
ers should scrounge seat cushions in
government buildings for loose change.
Every little bit helps.

Everyone is bound to screw up at least once


We had a situation not too
long ago. My son, Jake,
broke a water pipe and didn't
realize he had done it. He left
the house and water pumped
out on the ground for several
hours.
Of course his dad was the
one to find it and went
through this six-hour lecture
about how the pump was
going to burn up and he did-
n't have the $500 dollars to
replace it.
Then we all heard about
every time we have ever for-
gotten to turn the water off
and how one day we were
going to regret it, because
when the pump went down it
was going to stay down.
Then two days later I got a
phone call.
"Well, they finally did it,"
he said.
"Who did what?" I was at
work, and tried to remain
optimistic about this sudden
phone call. Maybe he was
calling to say his parents
finally hit the lottery, but I

could tell by the tone of this
voice that whatever it was
that "they" did, it wasn't
good.
"They burned up the water
pump."
'They' were clearly the
kids, and I was right -
whatever it was that they did,
it wasn't good.
"What do you mean?
How?"
"They left the water hose
on all day and the pump is
fried."
"Who did it?" This ques-


tion was critical. Was it
someone who had repeatedly
been warned?
"I don't know. All I know
is that there's a lake out there
and the water is not work-
ing."
I stood still, thinking that
if I didn't move, breathe or
talk I would find out it was
all a mistake. A hideous day
dream. I didn't have $500
dollars, either.
"Maybe ... maybe if it has
time to cool off it'll start
working again." I suggested.
"Maybe, but I doubt it."
Something was wrong. His
prophecy had come to pass.
He was right on all counts.
The water had been left on
and the pump had burned up.
He should be victorious and
livid. I've known this man
for almost thirty years. He
was not actin' right.
"Which hose was left on?"
I asked. There's about a
dozen of them and I needed

to know which one it was, so
that I could maybe figure out
who might be guilty.
"Huh?"
"I said, which hose was
left on? Where was the end
that the water comes out at?"
"What?"
By now I was smelling a
rat like a shark smells blood
in the water. I repeated my
question.
"It was out there at the pig
pen. Stuck in the water
trough," he said, finally.
"Well ... who watered the
pigs last?"
"The same one who always
waters the pigs, as far as I
know."
"You?"
"Yep. But I checked it
three times before I left! I
know how to turn off the
water!"
"I'm sure you do, but you
know as well as I do, that
nobody volunteers to water
those pjgs,, In fact, the, hose
has been left on so many
times at the hog pen that you
have insisted that no one else
water them but you. That's
why you do it every day."
"I think that boy did it," he
said.
"Jake?"
"Yeah, I wouldn't put it
past him. Just for meanness."
"You think he voluntarily
walked all the way out to the
pig pen and watered without
being forced to at gun point,
and then deliberately left the
water on?"
"Maybe ..."
"What would be his moti-
vation for doing a good thing
only to follow it up with a


bad thing? And remember we
are talking about Jake, who
does nothing without being
forced, or paid."
There was a very long
silence, which I chose to fill
with the awful, obvious truth.
"I hate to say it, but I think
you left the water hose on all
day," I said, and then held
my breath.
"Well," he said, finally
prepared to admit that it was
he who left the water on, "I
guess that makes me pretty
dumb, doesn't it?"
"No, it makes you some-
thing that we've suspected
you were all along," I said,
smiling into the phone.
"What's that, a jerk?"
"No ... it makes you
human. Welcome ... the rest
of us mere mortals have been
waiting for you for years."
As it turns out, it was just
the pressure switch that
burned up and it cost $46 as
opposed to $500. But the
actual event was extremely
valuable.
New pressure switch ...
$39
New points ... $7
The knowledge that every-
body can screw up some-
times ... priceless.

What to


wear
You signed up for the
Heartland Triathlon but
you're not so sure about
wearing Speedos.
Fortunately, the bikini for
men has fallen out of fashion
with triathletes. Nonetheless,
Eric Moore doesn't recom-
mend replacing them with
board shorts or baggy swim
trunks.
"Those things are very dif-
ficult to swim in and they're
going to slow you down,"
Moore said.
Since Wednesday and
through July 13, Moore is
helping you wade through
your first tri.
The gear can be technical
from software (apparel) to
hardware (bicycles), but all
the beginner needs is some-
thing to ride on, shoes to run
in and trunks to swim in.
While the first two are
already in the garage, what
you have for beach wear
may not be appropriate.
Moore suggests triathlon-
specific clothing such as tri
shorts or "jammers." They
snug up to the body for aero-
dynamics, and have just
enough padding to make the
bicycle seat bearable for 15
miles.
The jammers dry quick,
easing the transition to the
bike, and the minimal
padding facilitates the run.
They're readily available
on the Internet for about $35.
Female swimmers should
wear one-piece suits, don-
ning shorts afterward for the
bike and run.
Shirts are not required for
the run, but if you're so
inclined Moore suggests
Coolmax-type material and
light colors.
Save the T-shirts for your
victory dinner later in the
evening.
"They're going to be suf-
fering if they wear big cotton
tees," Moore said, explaining
the material absorb sweats.

S Look for. the catchwords

"moisture wicking."
Visors and hats keep the
sun and sweat out of the
eyes, Moore recommends
the former because it allows
more heat to escape.

ants that
get into. the house through
light fixtures, windows and
anywhere they find a crack.
They are "white-footed
ants" that are not native to
Florida as they originated in
the Far East. They are easily
confused with "crazy ants"
and "odorous house ants" as
they look much alike.
;First of all, none of these
ants bite, sting or damage
structures. But, they will
invade homes to nest, prima-
rily in the attics and wall
spaces. They have huge
colonies and are very diffi-
cult to get rid of.

ish-black in color and has
white feet. The white feet can
be seen if you put them on a
black piece of paper.
They feed on plant nectars
and honeydew, a sweet sub-
stance produced by many
sap-sucking insects such as
aphids. They come into
homes mainly to nest and
find moisture, especially in
bathrooms and kitchens.
, They tend to follow trails
so you may see a bunch of
them going back and forth on
your floors or your inside
and outside walls.
Winged males and winged
females emerge about this
time every year to mate and
start new colonies. I found
this out when they were fly-
ing around my bathroom and


later in the pool area. A
colony can produce a lot of
females so they are very pro-
lific and spread rapidly.
STo control white-footed
ants you may wish to call a
professional pest control
company or you can put out
baits; lots of bait and spray,
spray, spray. Use baits and
insecticides labeled for ants
and follow the label instruc-
tions. They are not easily
eliminated.

Driving up and down the
streets of Highlands County,
we all see the same thing -
an over abundance of homes
for sale. If you are one of
those people who have your
home listed, I can help you
put your home's "best foot
forward" and get that phone
ringing with offers.
The key is to take what
you already have and try to
improve the overall look.
Let's talk about the things
that can help you get that
quick easy sale. First of all,
repaint the walls in the rooms
that have high visibility
(kitchens, baths and living
areas). As a rule, choose a
neutral color scheme. A
creamy beige with white trim
is always a winner.
If you have wood flooring,
be sure that it isn't worn and
scratched. Refinishing it
could add dollar value to
your selling price. Have your
carpet professionally cleaned
or replace it with carpeting of
a neutral color. Be sure to get
rid of clutter such as piles of
magazines and reduce the
number of personal items on
display. You want your


potential
buyer to

The Highlands Art
League's Yellow House
Gallery at 1989 Lakeview
Drive will have its opening
reception for July's Artists of
the Month, Susan Milam and
Judith Blake.
"I paint for the pure pleas-
ure of it," said Milam, who is
on a quest to try every avail-
able medium. "Acrylics are
versatile, oils sensual, water-
color challenging and pastels
are ultimately immediate."
Milam began painting after
moving to Sebring from Palm
Beach county.
Blake began her art career
as an art teacher in virtually
every school level, from
kindergarten to graduate
school and adult evening
classes. Her first exhibition in
1973 earned her a masters
degree. She continued teach-
ing and studying various art
techniques around the world

In 1999, Judith was intro-
duced to digital photography
and computer enhancing of
images.
New last month, the
Sebring Public Library, locat-
ed across the parking lot from
the Highlands Art League at
319 W. Center Avenue will
again be participating.
Director Mary Myers is
extending the Library's hours
until 8 p.m. for the Walk.
Mazy Grimm, one of the
library's employees, who hap-
pens to be an artist herself,
will be showing her paintings
in their quiet room.
One of the most intriguing
stops on the walk is Miss
Ruby's Den, located at 619
North Pine Street. It is worth
the short trek off the beaten
path. There will be light
refreshments and "Full-
Moon" specials throughout


the gallery. On-site parking is
available.
Wild Artist Jewelry, 125
North Ridgewood Drive, has
an array of beautiful sun and
moon carvings from
Indonesia as well as moon-

Have Adam or Clark design
a special summer piece for
you. Stop in early and they
can have a custom-designed
bracelet or anklet ready by the
end of the Walk.
Photography by Mike at
112 North Ridgewood Drive
will be offering light refresh-

Hale and


hearty faith

I love to walk in the early
morning hours.
The cooler air is invigorat-
ing. And the sights and
sounds hold mystery and sur-
prises.
The other morning, the
sweet scent of a gardenia
bush turned my head and
triggered a memory.
Many years ago on this
same.trek, an elderly gentle-
man approached me with a
flower in his hand. It was a
gardenia from that same
bush. He didn't know the
prayer struggle I was in at
the moment.
But God had handpicked
him to remind me of his
watchful eye.
God has invited me onto
many walks in my life. Faith
walks, they're called.
One that stands out is our
move to Florida.
With three sons from mid-
dle to high school age; an
old brown station wagon,
sight unseen location; and a
new postal position awaiting
my husband we set out
from New Jersey to Sebring.
To some it may have
seemed fool hearty. But, to
us it was one of the most
hale and hearty faith walks
we had ever embarked on.
We didn't know anyone in
Sebring; we had never expe-
rienced living in a climate
without the change of sea-
sons; and, we could only
hope that a new church
would help provide us the
family support we knew we
would need.
There were bumps in the
road. For example, the fleas
in the carpet at our rental
house that were eating me -
and only me alive!
But God was building
stronger faith muscles in
each of us. And we found.
that we were invigorated'by
the adventure.
Yet, often we shrug our
shoulders and say resignedly,
"I guess I just have to take
one step at a time and walk
by faith." We don't sound
robust and vigorous rather
we sound pathetic and
wimpy.
But, God calls us to a
reckless confidence in him
that propels us to greater
heights in knowing him and
watching him make the
impossible -possible.
That kifd of confidence
can be dangerous if we don,t
remember in whom we are
placing our trust.
Can you imagine how
invigorated Peter felt when
he stepped out of the boat
and walked on the water
toward Jesus? Unfortunately,
he took his eyes off Jesus
and began to sink.
We read in Matthew 14:
32, NIV, Jesus reached out
his hand and saved Peter,
saying, "You of little faith ...
why did you doubt?"
We reap the benefits of
walking when we're consis-
tently faithful.
We experience a hale and
hearty faith walk when we
place our faith in the Lord
Jesus Christ who will never
leave us or forsake us.
Walk on. Selah

Adventures

in Art at HAL

still a hit

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING An amazing
thing happened at Highlands
Art League's Adventures in
Art last week. Students who
began Judith Blake's class
drawing stick figures, literal-
ly, finished the week drawing
incredibly life-like self por-
traits.
Student, Hannah Belcher
insisted that it was "just too
hard to do," but by the end of
the five days she was more
than enthusiastic about her
accomplishments. Blake drew
out the artist in all who
attended her class.
Elizabeth Ressler inspired
her polymer clay class to use
their imaginations to create
fanciful, colorful creations.
Students learned to use color
combinations to make mille-
fiori canes, and skinner
blends. Polymer clay has
become one of the craft
world's most popular medi-
ums, with polymer clay work
spilling over into the world of
fine arts.
Class at Highlands Art
League's Adventures in Art
will continue through July.
Recently added is a class
taught by local artist Janet
King, July 9-13.

Exotic pests are just as much a danger to state as exotic plants


Last
week, I
wrote
a about non-
native,
invasive
plants in
Florida
and how
News harmful
From The they are to
our envi-
Watershed ronment.

Corine Burgess But did
you know
that there are many species of
exotic pests and animals as
well? Many of these species
have proved detrimental to
the natural habitat of our
beautiful state.
In fact, in the last decade,
scientists have stated that
exotic pests are the second
greatest threat to biodiversity.
The No. 1 threat is, of
course, the destruction of nat-
ural plant communities and
habitat loss.
The federal government
defines invasive exotics as
"species that are non-native
to a given ecosystem and


whose introduction causes, or
is likely to cause, economic
or environmental harm or
harm to human health."
Concern over these exotics is
justifiable. The federal gov-
ernment spends over $137
billion annually in damage
and control measures in an
effort to keep these species
under control. In addition,
keeping these pests in check
has become even more of a
challenge because of
increased travel and trade.
These pests also cause
many problems in the agri-
cultural industry. We have all
heard about the horrors of
citrus canker, a disease
affecting citrus trees. This
disease comes from the bac-
terium xanthomanas
axonopodis, which is
believed to have originated in
Southeast Asia and has
caused problems all over the
world.
There are many other
"pests" which, even though
they may be too small to be
seen with the naked eye, are
causing many challenges for

land owners and our govern-
ment in an effort to keep
them under control.
Other exotic species which
have proven harmful to the
natural habitat may have
actually been purposefully
set "free" in the wild. For
example, people who no
longer want the exotic pets
that they purchased may have
the idea that they are provid-
ing a good home for them if
they allow them to go "back


to nature." Many exotic pets
are able to survive in Florida
because it is similar to the
climate in which they origi-
nated.
However, according to
Everglades park rangers, ani-
mal encounters such as those
between the exotic python
and the native alligator can
"hurt local wildlife and dis-
rupt the fragile ecosystem."
Rangers reported that they
have seen alligators and


pythons fighting for hours
and hours, each fight result-
ing in either injury or death
to one of the animals.
The Division of Freshwater
Fisheries is concerned about
the number of exotic fishes
that are residing in the waters
of Florida. There are at least
32 species of freshwater fish
that have been introduced
either intentionally or illegal-
ly by humans. Some have
been released in much the
same way as the python to
the Everglades, by a pet
owner dumping their aquari-
um into a nearby body of
water. Some have gotten into
our waters by the flooding of
aquaculture ponds. Most of
these types of fish came from
either South America, Africa
or Southeast Asia and there-
fore, are quite comfortable in
our warm waters.
Like exotic plants, the
presence of these fish can be
detrimental to native species.
These invasive species alter
the natural energy flow
through aquatic ecosystems,
compete or mate with native


species and can carry harmful
parasites and diseases. In
addition, some exotic species
such as piranha can be harm-
ful to man.
We have only scratched the
surface regarding invasive
exotic animals in Florida.
Other species include the
armadillo, feral hog, red fox,
rhesus monkey, feral cat, fer-
ret, Gambian pouch rat and
the Cuban brown anole.
Florida has become a
dumping ground for exotic
animals. As a result, Florida
is now faced with a tremen-
dous burden regarding non-
native species. So, if you get
tired of your pet, make sure
to find it a proper home.
Don't let it loose in the wild.
Let's help keep Florida in its
natural state.

426 School Street, Sebring, FL 33870, within
21 days after publication of this notice. If
such hearing is requested, it will be held
Tuesday, July 31, 2007, at 5:45 p.m. Any
person desiring to attend such a hearing is re-
quested to call the Superintendent's office to
verify whether such hearing has been request-
ed. The purpose and effect of the proposed
rule is to make changes to the policy in ac-
cordance with requirements set forth in recent
Florida legislation. A summary of the pro-
posed rule or amendment is as follows: All
references to bus "drivers" shall be changed
to read bus "operators". The specific legal au-
thority includes Sections 1001.41 and
1001.42, Florida Statutes. The School District
believes that the proposed rule or amendment
will have no effect on small business. The
School District believes that the proposed rule
or amendment will not result in substantial in-
crease in costs or prices paid by consumers,
individual industries or state or local govern-
ment agencies, and will not result in signifi-


cant adverse effects on competition, employ-
ment, investment, productivity, innovation or
international trade and/or alternative ap-
proaches to the regulatory objective either do
not exist and/or are precluded by law. The
cost to the School District of promulgating the
proposed rule or amendment is estimated to
be $50. The estimated annual cost of imple-
menting and enforcing the proposed 'rule or
amendment is $0. The text of the proposed
rule or amendment can be obtained at the Su-
perintendent's office (Attn. Connie Scobey),
George Douglass Administration Building, 426
School Street, Sebring, Florida between the
hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday
through Friday.

STATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT

The Department of Environmental Protec-
tion gives notice of its intent to issue a permit
(File No. El-0272794-001) to U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers, to continue backfilling portions
of the C-38 Canal as part of environmental re-
storation of the Kissimmee River ecosystem.
This project includes construction works as-
sociated with the backfilling of approximately
4 miles of the C-38 Canal at Reach 4 (Contract
13B). The proposed project is part of phased
activities for the Kissimmee River Restoration
(KRR) that will allow restoration of the historic
Kissimmee River channel.
The activities are located throughout the
Pool B floodplains in Okeechobee and High-
lands Counties. The project is located on ap-
proximately 4 miles of the Kissimmee River
from approximately 2,000 feet north of Weir 1
to just north of Weir 3.
The application is available for public in-
spection during normal business hours, 8:00
a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, ex-
cept legal holidays, at the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection, Southeast Dis-
trict Office, 400 North Congress Avenue, Suite
200, West Palm Beach, Florida.
The Department will issue the permit with
attached conditions unless a timely petition
for an administrative hearing is filed under
sections .120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes, before the deadline for filing a peti-
,tion..The procedures for petitioning for a hear-
ing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the Department's proposed per-
mitting decision may petition for an adminis-
trative proceeding (hearing) under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes.
The petition must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed (received by the
clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000.
Petitions by the applicant or any of the par-
ties listed below must be filed within 21 days
of receipt of this written notice. Petitions filed
by any persons other than those entitled to
written notice under section 120.60(3) of the
Florida Statutes must be filed within 21 days
of publication of the notice or receipt of the
written notice, whichever occurs first. Under
section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes,
however, any person who has asked the De-
partment for notice of agency action may file a
petition within 21 days of receipt of such no-
tice, regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the peti-
tion to the applicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The failure of any
person to file a petition or request for media-
tion within the appropriate time period shall
constitute a waiver of that person's right to re-
quest an administrative determination (hear-
ing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention
(in a proceeding initiated by another party)
will be 'only at the discretion of the presiding
officer upon the filing of a motion in compli-
ance with rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Ad-
ministrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts
on which the Department's action is based
must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency
affected and each agency's file or identifica-
tion number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone num-
ber of the petitioner; the name, address, and
telephone number of the petitioner's represen-
tative, if any, which shall be the address for
service purposes during the course of the pro-
ceeding; and an explanation of how the peti-
tioner's substantial interests will be affected
by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when each peti-
tioner received notice of the agency decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of ma-
terial fact. If there are none, the petition must
so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts
alleged, as well as the rules or statutes which
entitle the petitioner to relief; and
(f) A demand for relief.
A petition that does not dispute the materi-
al facts on which the Department's action is
based shall state that no such facts are in dis-
pute and otherwise shall contain the same in-
formation as set forth above, as required by
rule 28-106.301.


Because the administrative hearing proc-
ess is designed to formulate final agency ac-
tion, the filing of a petition means that the De-
partment's final action may be different from
the position taken by it in this notice. Persons
whose substantial interests will be affected by
any such final decision of the Department
have the right to petition to become a party to
the proceeding, in accordance with the re-
quirements set forth above.
Mediation is not available in this proceed-
ing.
Any party to this order has the right to
seek judicial review of it under section 120.68
of the Florida Statutes, by filing a notice of ap-
peal under rule 9.110 of the Florida Rules of
Appellate Procedure with the clerk of the De-
partment in the Office of General Counsel,
Mail Station 35, 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, and by
filing a copy of the notice of appeal accompa-
nied by the applicable filing fees with the ap-
propriate district court of appeal. The notice
of appeal must be filed within thirty days after
this order is filed with the clerk of the Depart-.
ment.

OF POTENTIAL PUBLIC HEARING

Instruction/Physical Education at a regular
meeting of the Board on Tuesday, July 31,
2007, at 5:30 p.m. in the Board Meeting
Room, George Douglass Administration Build-
ing, 426 School Street, Sebring, Florida. The
proposed new rule shall be effective upon
adoption. Pursuant to Section 120.54, Florida
Statutes, any affected person has twenty-one
(21) days after publication of this notice to re-
quest the opportunity to present evidence and
argument to the School Board of Highlands
County, Florida regarding the proposed rule.
Such hearing must be requested in writing
and received by Wally Cox, Superintendent,
426 School Street, Sebring, FL 33870, within
21 days after publication of this notice. If
such hearing is requested, it will be held
Tuesday, July 31, 2007, at 5:45 p.m. Any
person desiring to attend such a hearing is re-
quested to call the Superintendent's office to
verify whether such hearing has been request-
ed. The purpose and effect of the proposed
rule is to update in accordance with annual re-
view and implement statutory changes and
other corrective measures as deemed neces-
sary. A summary of the proposed rule or
amendment is as follows: The School District
of Highlands County believes that physical ed-
ucation is an important component of the total
educational program. The physical education
program shall focus on providing students
with the krfowledge and skills to make healthy
lifestyle decisions. The physical education
program shall be consistent with the stand-
ards of the National Association for Sport and
Physical Education and with the Sunshine
State Standards. It shall be an integral part of
the District Wellness Program. The physical
education curriculum shall be a continuum
from prekindergarten through grade 12. Activ-
ities shall be appropriate for the grade level
and capabilities of the students and shall be of
sufficient intensity and duration to.provide a

comprehensive physical education plan with
input from teachers, parents, students, and

the Wellness Committee and modified as ap-
propriate. The plan shall adhere to the require-
ments of Florida Statutes. The specific legal
authority includes Sections 1001.41 and
1001.42, Florida Statutes. The School District
believes that the proposed rule or amendment
will have no effect on small business. The
School District believes that the proposed rule
or amendment will not result in substantial in-
crease in costs or prices paid by consumers,
individual industries or state or local govern-
ment agencies, and will not result in signifi-
cant adverse effects on competition, employ-
ment, investment, productivity, innovation or
international trade and/or alternative ap-
proaches to the regulatory objective either do
not exist and/or are precluded by law. The
cost to the School District of promulgating the
proposed rule or amendment is estimated to
be $50. The estimated annual cost of imple-
menting and enforcing the proposed rule or
amendment is $0. The text of the proposed
rule or amendment can be obtained at the Su-
perintendent's office (Attn. Connie Scobey),

M Lake Placid drops District 8 opener


Outdoors
Lloyd Jones

National wildlife

refuges are a

national treasure

Sitting beneath a large
twisted oak tree on a shady
creek bank, in the early
morning, watching the sun
slowly creeping upward on
the far horizon, it is so still,
so quiet that all I can hear is
my own breathing. All the
world seems to be asleep,
until a slight movement in
the shadows on the opposite
bank slowly takes the form
of a whitetail doe stepping
timidly to the edge of the
creek seeking to drink from
the melted snow waters.
Such a scene is played out
every morning somewhere in
our wonderful national
wildlife refuges all across
this beautiful land. More
than a hundred years ago,
C.M. Russell, cowboy artist,
upset at the loss of the once
mighty herds of buffalo in
the west, wrote to a friend
saying; "for over a hundred
years he fed and made beds
for our frontier an it shure
looks like we could feed an
protect a fiew hundred of
them. .."
RIuIell', friend, President
-Theodore Roosevelt listened
S and sharing his concern, in
1905 established a sanctuary
for buffalo in the Wichita
Mountains of Oklahoma. The
restocking effort at the
Wichita wildlife refuge
began in 1907 when fifteen
buffalo, donated by the New
York Zoological Society,
arrived at the Cache railhead.
Today, thanks to careful
management, ancestors of
the original fifteen number
more than 500 living in the
oak forests and mixed-grass
prairie, nestled in the north-
west corner of Comanche
County, Oklahoma. The
refuge covers 59,000 acres
with 22,400 open for public
use. The other 36,000 plus

LAKE PLACID Trying
to follow the lead of their
AAA counterparts, the Lake
Placid Dixie Youth Majors
All-Star team got off on the
wrong foot in their District 8
tournament opener, falling 6-
5 to Okeechobee American
Saturday morning at Lake
June Park.
Okeechobee wasted little
time breaking out on top,
Okeechbee scoring two
Okeechobee .
in the first on
6 RBI singles
from Jacob
Lake Placid Demer and
5 Dalton
Murray of
Lake Placid
starter Marty
Hickey.
Lake Placid wasn't able to
do any first-inning scoring,
and American looked to add
to its' 2-0 lead.
Hickey had no trouble,
however, getting through the
second with just one runner
reaching base and Lake


Placid looked poised to get
back into the game in its half
of the second when Josh
Zahn, Nevada Weaver and
Heath Harris drew consecu-
tive walks to load the bases
with nobody out.
But two strikeouts and a
one-hopper back to the
mound later, the inning was
suddenly over with no runs
coming across.
The missed opportunity
was tough to swallow, but
Hickey stayed on his game,
keeping Okeechobee off the
board in the third, and keep-
ing the lead within reach.
The American All-Stars
turned to southpaw Marshall
Tommie in the bottom of the
third and again the patient
Placid players drew opening
inning walks, two of them
this time, to Nathan Stanley
and Josh Montero.
Alex Miller then knocked
Stanley in with a single to
halve the lead and the bases
.were soon loaded when

Swimmers of all ages make up the Lake Placid
Aquatics swim club, and many of the 62 members were
at the Lake Placid High School pool Saturday to take
part in the Swimathon fundraiser. The swimmers got
sponsors and were to swim either 200 lengths or as
many lengths as they could in two hours to help raise
money to help with equipment for the Aquatics. "Our
fees take care of most of our expenses, such as travel-'
ing to meets," club head Vicky Million said. "Some of
our equipment we share with the high school swim
team. This is to help get us better equipped and keep
the swimmers safe." Club members range in age from
five to 40 and they took part in the Sunshine State
Games recently. Results of the Aquatics performance
there will be in the Wednesday, June 27 edition of the
News-Sun.


Sammy sparks long, lost smile


So Sammy Sosa did it,
just as I knew he would.
Not that he hit his 600th
home run, which yes, I knew
he would, eventually.
But as soon as I saw that
he had an upcoming series
against the Cubs, I knew
he'd hit it against them.
It was too perfect, made
too much karmic sense.
It was like that gorgeous
ex-girlfriend who had gotten
too full of herself, dumped
you, then pulled a Lindsey
Lohan and got rail-thin and
went to rehab.
You hadn't had much
romantic success since then,
but you could feel good
knowing what had become
of her.
But suddenly she shows
up, not quite as glamorous
as she had once been, but
still looking pretty darn
good.
The team that he had car-
ried throughout the 90s,
served as their second
biggest draw, other than
Wrigley Field.
The man who, in a sense,
helped save baseball during
the magical summer of '98.
Say what you will that it


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne


was him and Mark McGwire
who saved the game, but I
suggest that McGwire was
already on pace to set the
single-season home run
record, but was not at all
comfortable in opening up
and enjoying the chase -
leaving the general public
not quite running to the tick-
et gates.
The baseball world only
became captivated and bur-
geoning with excess fans
when the always smiling,
silly and slammin' Sosa
joined the chase and loos-
ened Big Mac up.
And since he was wearing
a Cub.uniform while doing
it, he became as much of a
civic pride in Chicago as


Walter Payton or Michael
Jordan
At least on the north side
of town, and at least for a
little while.
Unlike the other two leg-
ends who are still held in
near-biblical reverence,
Sosa's fade from glory and
from the hearts of the Cubs
and their fans was quick and
complete.
I still maintain that his
demise began after an errant

broke his helmet during the
04 season.
This was after, of course,
the Cubs had come so close
to the World Series in 03,
with other players taking up
more of the spotlight that
had so long been reserved
for Sosa.
Already feeling perhaps a
bit diminished, the beaning
shook him as it would any
ballplayer.
Batting struggles soon
followed, dimming his star
even more.
Desperate to do some-

he showed little appreciation

A dismal year in
Baltimore lead to little-to-no
interest for the following
season and Sosa decided to

But you knew it couldn't

Within 12 home runs of

Wild races, fun times at Hendry County Speedway


Special to the News-Sun
This week the rain clouds
parted way and there were
clear skies at Hendry County
Speedway.
After a disappointing rain-
out last weekend, the Central
Sheds and Trailers Twin 25's
were rescheduled for July 7th.
This weekend's feature
would be a little different an
Enduro race for 50 laps with
$500 to win.
The race started off with a
vote on the ugliest and best
looking cars.
Dave's Car Care of Hialeah
put up the $50 for the best
looking car of #18 Linda
Scmal.
Al Junkyard of Miami had
$50 for ugliest car winner
#911 Phil Peterson those
two cars sat on the front row
for the start.
The race would go off with-
out a single caution and only
two cars that started the race


did not finish.
Terry Price rode the rear
bumper of Eddie Lawler for
the majority of the race, and
with just a few laps left
Lawler had a lot of smoke
coming out of the front wheel
of his car.
He did go on to win the
race but caught fire in the
front brakes when he stopped
to talk after the win on the
front straight.
Eddie had gone on to victo-
ry in the Bomber Division
earlier that night.
Fellow Enduro drivers J.R.
Fitch and Terry Price rounded
out the top three of that class.
Sportsman cars were also
on hand and the action is
always fierce in this group.
Tim Powers threw some
new skin on his car, branded it
with the #44 and whooped
some tail all night.
Winning the heat race set


him up for the pole position
for the feature where he
jumped straight out to a nice
lead and didn't look back.
Some great battles were
going on behind as Ricky
Land and Bob Steinmetz
raced each other with Joe
Henke Stirring into the mix.
From the fifth position,
Michael Cherry started
threading his way past these
racers and set his eyes on
Powers.
Some sort of mechanical
failure soon took the point
leader Cherry out of the race
and at this point Joe Henke,
second in points was looking
to gain some ground in the
series.
He had moved into second
and was after Powers as well.
Turn two prove to be a bad
spot for Henke, though, spin-
ning his car on his own and
finding himself at the rear of


the field.
A few laps later in the same
corner Jeremy Dowler in his
newly debuted 00 was getting
sideways in the loose stuff.
The car shot down the track
right in front of Travis Drapal
who was battling for position
with Henke.
Drapal managed to get
slowed down enough to miss
Dowler, but Henke never saw
him coming.
Drapal's car blocked the
view of the red 00 and when
he came across in front of
Henke the car would not go
on to look so pretty anymore.
Henke, still on the gas,
drove Dowler over the inside
berm and onto his roof so
much for the new body on that
car.
Dowler emerged O.K. but
unable to finish the race.
Henke took the #3 to the
pits looked it over, changed a


"UT
.dlmmw ~


tire at the Sugarland
Motorsports trailer and
rejoined the race still on the
lead lap.
He rode out the night into a
fifth-place finish.
Bob Steinmetz worked his
way around Ricky Land for
second while Drapal made
third and Land settled for
fourth.
Powers looked like a new
force to be reckoned with in
the class, watch for him in the
twin 25's coming up in July.
He has managed to do well
in that series driving John
Wilson's #64 Street Stock.
Wayne Hildebrand ran
Goodson's #16 pinto to a vic-
tory in the Mini Stock class.
Too Fast Tommy Hill won
the Pure Stock Class he and
his father Rodney won both
segments of the father son
race as well.
Jukin John Wilson was on

Hill ran second in that
event.

closed once again on the 23rd,
but come out and join the fes-
tivities at the Independence

DIXIE
Continued from 1D
Ricky Miller drew a base-on-
balls.
Morgan Lott then drew a
walk to force in a run and
with Weaver at the plate, Alex
Miller darted for home on a
wild pitch, sliding in under
the tag to give Lake Placid a
3-2 lead.
Okeechobee came back to
tie it, however, as Billy
Childers drove home Murray,
who had doubled.
The game stayed even at 3-
3 when the hosts went quietly
in their half of the fourth, but
the Americans retook the lead
in the top of the fi th.
A single and a wa i put two
runners on before Jack
Radebaugh drove home one
with a single.
Christian Crews then fol-
lowed with another run scor-
ing base-knock.
Further damage was evaded
as right fielder Brandon Wells
made a nice running grab of a
deep drive to right center by
Demer but again, Lake
Placid found itself looking up
at a two-run deficit.
That deficit evaporated
quickly, though, as the Miller
boys, Alex and Ricky, drew
back-to-back walks and
scored back-to-back runs on
Lott's two-run double down
the right-field line tying the
game, 5-5, heading into the
final inning.
But with one out in the
final frame, Murray roped a
triple and came in with the go
ahead run on Childers' single.
Heath Harris opened Lake

attempt leading off the first inning. But Miller and his Lake Here in the state of Florida
Placid teammates came up just short, falling 6-5 to the we have the first designated
Okeechobee American team.


Placid's final at-bat with a
line-shot that was heading up
the middle, but it caromed off
reliever Demer's leg.
Despite hobbling in pain
moments later, Demer's
instinct took over at the
moment as he quickly
retrieved the ball and nipped
Harris at first.
Two less dramatic outs fol-
lowed and the 6-5
Okeechobee was complete,
sending Lake Placid into the
bottom bracket of the tourna-
ment and facing an elimina-
tion game against Moore
Haven today at 3 p.m.
"It was a well-played game
overall," Lake Placid head


hit it against them.
While sitting through the
Lake Placid Dixie teams rain
delay Wednesday night, I
even mentioned to a fellow
reporter that I just hoped to
get home to see some of the
game and catch Sosa hitting
it.
Well, I did get home and
caught the game, about two
innings after he hit it.
It was when he was com-
ing up for his next at-bat that


coach Rick Miller said. "They
are a very well-coached team
and we just weren't aggres-
sive enough with the bats
today.
"But we'll be back tomor-
row with Morgan Lott on the
mound," he continued. "And
we'll just have to come out
swinging the bat a little
more."
Moore Haven was sent to
defeat in the other opening
game by Clewiston, who will
face Okeechobee in the win-
ners bracket.
Saturday afternoon's game
pitted Avon Park against Belle
Glade, with the result not
final at press time.


the Cub announcers men-
tioned that he had hit it his
last time up and showed the
replay.
There it was, the stance,
the swing and the instinctive
home-run hop played out
before me all over again -
but just a little bit different, a
little bittersweet.
And there she was, that
slimmed down ex who had
walked out on you, flashing
that gorgeous smile.

national wildlife refuge.
Pelican Island refuge was
established on March 14,
1903 by President Teddy
Roosevelt to protect the
brown pelicans and other
native birds nesting on the
island. This was the first time
the federal government set
aside land for the sake of
wildlife.
Pelican Island started out
as a 5.5-acre refuge, but
through efforts of concerned
citizens, the State of Florida,
conservation easements and
outright purchase of land sur-
rounding the island, it now
covers more than 5,375
acres.
In addition to the lands
purchased by the refuge, the
buffer islands surrounding
the refuge was acquired
through state lease agree-
ments and donations. Law


enforcement plays a role in
protecting the island, which
is a closed area due to its
year-round use by many
species of birds.
Florida has 28 such sanctu-
aries, most scattered along
the Gulf coast and Atlantic
coast. There are 547 national
refuges distributed across all
50 states covering more than
95 million acres. The Neches
River NWR in Texas was the
546th. Montana is home to
the Rocky Mountain Front
Conservation Area, the 547th
designated refuge.
All of the refuges are won-
derful destinations for vaca-
tioners who love the outdoors
and they will make lasting
impressions to enjoy for
years to come.

NOTICE OF INTENT OF THE SCHOOL BOARD
OF HIGHLANDS COUNTY, FLORIDA TO CON-
SIDER ADOPTION OR AMENDMENT OF
SCHOOL DISTRICT RULE 2.261 AND NOTICE
OF POTENTIAL PUBLIC HEARING
NOTICE is hereby given that THE SCHOOL
BOARD OF HIGHLANDS COUNTY intends to
adopt Rule 2.261, Family and School Partner-
ship for Student Achievement at a regular
meeting of the Board on Tuesday, July 31,
2007, at 5:30 p.m. in the Board Meeting
Room, George Douglass Administration Build-
ing, 426 School Street, Sebring, Florida. The
proposed new rule shall be effective upon
adoption. Pursuant to Section 120.54, Florida
Statutes, any affected person has twenty-one
(21) days after publication of this notice to re-
quest the opportunity to present evidence and
argument to the School Board of Highlands
County, Florida regarding the proposed rule.
Such hearing must be requested in writing
and received by Wally Cox, Superintendent,
426 School Street, Sebring, FL 33870, within
21 days after publication of this notice. If
such hearing is requested, it will be held
Tuesday, July 31, 2007, at 5:45 p.m. Any
person desiring to attend such a hearing is re-
quested to call the Superintendent's office to
verify whether such hearing has been request-
ed. The purpose and effect of the proposed
rule is to comply with requirements set forth
in recent Florida legislation. A summary of the
proposed rule is as follows: The District shall
develop and distribute a parent guide to suc-
cessful student achievement. The guide shall
contain information that parents need to know
about their child's educational progress and
how parents can help their child's success in
school. The District, to the extent practicable,
shall provide full opportunities for parents
with disabilities, parents with limited English
proficiency and parents of migratory children
to participate in school and parental involve-
ment activities and programs. The specific le-
gal authority includes Sections 1001.41 and
1001.42, Florida Statutes. The School District
believes that the proposed rule or amendment
will have no effect on small business. The
School District believes that the proposed rule
or amendment will not result in substantial in-
crease in costs or prices paid by consumers,
individual industries or state or local govern-
ment agencies, and will not result in signifi-
cant adverse effects on competition, employ-

tive upon adoption. Pursuant to Section
120.54, Florida Statutes, any affected-person
has twenty-one (21) days after publication of
this notice to request the opportunity to pres-
ent evidence and argument to the School
Board of Highlands County, Florida regarding

quested in writing and received by Wally Cox,

will be held Tuesday, July 31, 2007, at 5:45

hearing is requested to call the Superintend-
ent's office to verify whether such hearing
has been requested. The purpose and effect of
the.proposed rule is to update in accordance
with annual review and implement statutory
changes and other corrective measures as
deemed necessary. A summary of the pro-
posed rule or amendment is as follows: Psy-
chotropic medication is a prescription medica-
tion used for the treatment of mental disor-
ders and includes, without limitation, antihyp-
notics, antipsychotics, antidepressants, anxi-
ety agents, sedatives, psychomotor stimu-
lants, and mood stabilizers. The School Board
of Highlands County shall not deny a student
access to programs or services because the
parent, as defined by Florida Statutes, has re-
fused to place the student on psychotropic
medication. A teacher, administrator, or other
District employee shall not require that a stu-
dent take psychotropic medication; nor shall
any District employee compel or attempt to
compel a parent to administer psychotropic
medication to his/her child. A teacher, admin-
istrator, or other District employee may dis-
cuss school based observations of a student's
academic, functional, and behavioral perform-
ance with the student's parent. The employee
may offer options for programs and services
that are available to the parent and student;
however, the parent shall be responsible for
selecting programs and services, if any, for
the student. The specific legal authority in-
cludes Sections 1001.41 and 1001.42, Florida
Statutes. The School District believes that the
proposed rule or amendment will have no ef-
fect on small business. The School District
believes that the proposed rule or amendment
will not result in substantial increase in costs


or prices paid by consumers, individual indus-
tries or state or local government agencies,
and will not result in significant adverse ef-
fects on competition, employment, invest-
ment, productivity, innovation or international
trade and/or alternative approaches to the reg-
ulatory objective either do not exist and/or are
precluded by law. The cost to the School Dis-
trict of promulgating the proposed rule or
amendment is estimated to be $50. The esti-
mated annual cost of implementing and en-
forcing the proposed rule or amendment is
$0. The text of the proposed rule or amend-
ment can be obtained at the Superintendent's
office (Attn. Connie Scobey), George Douglass
Administration Building, 426 School Street,
Sebring, Florida between the hours of 8:00
a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
