TDC asks for audit of 24 vacation rentals


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Tourist
Development Council executive
director Jim Brantley will ask
the Department of Revenue to
audit 24 short-term rental
homes to see if they're paying
the two-percent "tourist tax."
The county has more than 70
hotels, motels, bed and break-
fasts, recreational vehicle
parks, campgrounds, fish
resorts and vacation rentals -
and they're all listed at the
TDC's Web site.
But Florida's revenue depart-
ment said only 15 are paying


'"It's a fairness issue. Those

required to pay should pay. It's not

about hammering a tax on people.'

JIM BRANTLEY
Tourist Development Council executive director


the tax, which the council is
seeking to increase to three per-
cent.
"Chain hotels and larger indi-
vidual hotels like Kenilworth
(Lodge) and Inn on the Lakes,
they follow the law," Brantley
said. "I suspect a lot of RV


parks and campgrounds aren't
collecting."
He recently sent information-
al packets out to the hospitality
business community explaining
the law and ramifications of not
collecting and remitting the
tourist development tax. Some


owners called him and said
they're exempt, which may be
true.
But to verify who's paying
the tax, who's not and who's
exempt requires passing that
business' information to the
revenue department and
requesting an audit, which may
or may not happen.
"Can you imagine how many
people they would have to have
on board to audit all the hotels,
motels, RV parks and camp-
grounds?" Brantley said. "It
would be incredible."

'We Learned How To ChangeThe World'


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
No smoke and no smell from the flare burner at
the Highlands County landfill means methane
gasses produced there are burning away in an
environmentally safe manner. Solid Waste direc-
tor Ken Wheeler wants to convert some of that
gas into fuel for a proposed asphalt plant.
Opponents, via the Asphalt Contractors
Association of Florida, contest his projected cost-
benefit analysis.


Wheeler disagrees


with criticism of


asphalt plant plan
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING County commissioners will have
an opportunity Tuesday to accept Gencor
Industries' bid to build a $2.6 million asphalt plant
utilizing ihe landfill's methane
S Through the Asphalt Contractors Association of
Florida,.two companies o7ne based in Lake
Placid are fighting the county's move toward an
in-house plant that would eliminate its dependence
on vendors.
"This is the first county-owned asphalt plant in
Florida and many other counties are watching what
we're doing," said Ken Wheeler, Solid Waste direc-
tor.
He said the asphalt industry is being scrutinized
for soaring costs and conveyed Highlands County's
issues with Better Roads in Lake Placid, the consu-
mate low bidder for resurfacing projects.
County staff have accused Better Roads of not
honoring contracts for lack of manpower or
changes in price. The company has denied this.
"They brought this to me as something we as an
association should look at and be involved," asso-
ciation director Jim Warren said of members Apac
and Better Roads.
He confirmed this is the first time he's dealt with
this in Florida. He accused Wheeler of making the
proposed plant more attractive than it is.
Warren said Wheeler's analysis production and
asphalt-laying costs are understated.
"We tried to convey what we though the actual
costs are," Warren said, noting his members deal
with asphalt daily. "They're going forward with
this whether we commented or not. We just think
the other side of the story needs to be heard."

Highlands County FFA members take time out to relax and reflect on their trip to Washington, D.C., taking a long look at
the Reflecting Pool and Washington Monument.


FFA members bring back life lessons from leadership conference


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
t was more than just a trip it was
an experience for 13 young Highlands
County students who wound up think-
ing about their futures and what they
want out of life.
Nervous at first, then with time to think
about the trip, one student nearly brought
tears to Avon Park Middle School FFA
advisor Kellie Duke's eyes when the
young man spoke about what he wants out
of life and he's only an incoming Avon
Park High School freshman.
"It was truly a life-changing event,"
Brandon Gunn said. "Our group leader
really made me think what I want to do
and what makes me happy. I want to help

changing event.'

people and strengthen the community."
Those strong feelings might be traced
back to the 45 minutes the group spent
picking what amounted to 21,000 pounds
of corn for a local food bank to feed the
homeless and needy of Washington, D.C.
Taylor Lane even discovered that one in
three children in the city are starving.
"It mide me feel good about myself to
make a difference," she said.


Charlie Brown added his own opinion
on the matter.
"The only way to change the world is
one random act of kindness at a time," he
said.
In fact, FFA students picked so much
corn the semi-trailer it was loaded into
started to break.
"It wasn't just picking corn; we fed tons
of people that were hungry," added another
student, Melissa Tullo. "Something so
small can change the world. I want to do
that for the community."
Students arrived July 24 and stayed for
only five days, but it was apparent in an
interview Friday that their lives would

Stepping Stone log cabin steps out of renovation

Girl Scouts Savannah Garrison (left), 9, and Stephanie Struck,
13, work on a craft project together Saturday morning during the
rededication ceremony at the Girl Scout house in Sebring.


Girl Scout house gets

much-needed face lift
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Anne Holley of
Sebring likes to have fun and likes
playing with other 6-year-old girls.
That's why she's a Brownie Scout.
Holley joined about two dozen peo-
ple Saturday for the rededication of the
Stepping Stones Log Cabin Girl Scout
house in Sebring.
The building recently underwent
extensive renovations that included
adding central air, an office, a storage
room and not one but two bathrooms


with doors.
Past and present Girl Scouts and
leaders were on hand to show off their
new digs, including News-Sun photog-
rapher Katara Simmons, who was a
Brownie, Heartland Sun-Times editor
Audrey Vickers, who was a leader, and
Mandy Sheets of Highlands Today,
who volunteers with the Girl Scouts.
During an informal yet compelling
presentation, different women took
turns telling their stories about being a
Girl Scout in Highlands County and
their roles in having the log cabin built
and eventually renovated.
"It was a way of life here in
Sebring," said Louise Sauls, whose
daughter, Monica Sauls, was a Girl


Scout in high school and is still in uni-
form, as a Highlands County Sheriff's
deputy. "We created our own fun."
Despite a growing population local-
ly, the percentage of girls who turn to
scouting for recreation, camaraderie
and leadership has declined.
Sandi Stewart, chief executive offi-
cer of Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast
Florida, said fun is often handed to
girls in the form of high-tech toys.
Local leader Julia Newell said
they're in the process of creating a
"teen house" for high school girls to
get together once a month for coffee
and chats.
Girls can enter the scouts at age 5 as

SEBRING A trio of
Highlands County Sheriffs
officers got a mouthful of dis-
respect when they were spit
at after responding to a
domestic dispute Thursday
evening.
Arriving at. the residence
on Sage Creek drive in
Sebring, officers were met
with an upset Kimberly Doty,
reportedly telling them "get

While talking with Doty, Cliffor
Officers Paul Deshazo and Learni

$30,000 was removed from public
information and funded at $20,000 in
recycling.
"To the best of Mr. Cool's knowledge,
he told the budget office to take the cal-
endar off," public information assistant
Gloria Rybinski said Friday.
What happened, explained Rybinski, is
former public information director
Corine Burgess was transferred to anoth-
er department and the public information
office was eliminated.
Meanwhile, Recycling Program man-
ager Christy Reed was developing her
budget and had attempted to contact


Back to School Fun and


Cool and Burgess about the calendar, for
which recycling grants and public infor-
mation funds were used.
Having not spoken with either of them,
Reed went ahead and added the calendar
to her budget knowing that she wouldn't
be able to ask for it once the budget was
approved, Rybinski said.
"That's what happened," Rybinski
said. "It was just a mistake."
Among other issues, Stewart
expressed her doubts about the budget as
proposed. Rybinski said the calendar
issue wasn't resolved and is expected to
be discussed Tuesday.

FFA
Continued from 1A
never be the same.
"When we visited, I wasn't
fully aware how much my
life would change. I figured
it was just another conven-
tion," Ariel Starling said.
"Once it got started and I met
people ... wow, what an
opportunity."
Only half of one percent of
FFA members nationwide
attended one of the seven
summer Washington
Leadership Conferences.
That's not to say the group
didn't have the usual teenage
fun, too pillow and food
fights were also on the agen-
da, but merely accompanied
the event, not overshadowing
it.
The conference drew in
students from all over the
country, which prompted the
local group to notice the
small differences some
call soda "Coke" while others
call it "pop," they said.
Other funny tidbits they
brought back were the fact
that some called water foun-
tains "water bubblers" and
the shocking fact that some
have never seen the ocean or


quenched their thirst with
sweet tea.
"We learned how to change
the world and how diversity
is a good thing," Tullo noted.
"Different perspectives lead
to different ideas."
One such perspective from
a group leader, who were col-
lege-age adults that mentored
groups of 20 to 25 students,
gave Jerry Lee Wright some-
thing to think about for years
to come.
"Nothing is right or wrong,

a quote I will live by the rest
of my life," Wright said. "I
went to bed thinking about
that quote."'
It meant we can decide for
ourselves and make our own
judgments, he said.
With all of the history
around, including the various
monuments erected to
remember some of the coun-
try's greatest leaders and
founders, it was a great place
to hold a conference on just
that leadership.
Wright was deeply affected
while visiting the Lincoln
Memorial.
"It made me think 'this is
someone I can look up to,'"
Wright said. "He took a stand
at a difficult time; he was an

The county lacks enforcement authority and
the state won't tell Brantley (or anybody else)
who is paying. Now that the tourist tax has
been in place more than three years, the coun-
ty qualifies to collect the tax itself.
The tax collector could assess a fee up to
three percent for the service. With the county's
tourist tax revenue of about $320,000 last year
and less expected this year, Brantley said the
collection fee isn't enough to justify local col-
lection.
The state used to charge six percent, but no
longer does.
Self-collection would facilitate the county's
tracking of the tourist tax and give it the power
to penalize businesses for not paying up.
"It's a fairness issue," Brantley said. "Those
required to pay should pay. It's not about ham-


mering a tax on people."
Brantley found the 24 short-term rentals
that he's asking the state to audit on the
Internet at Vacation Rentals By Owner
(www.vrbo.com). Though the site doesn't list
addresses for the units, it has phone numbers
and he called them.
All 24 reported that they don't collect the
two-percent tax. Brantley suspects they're
likely not collecting the county's sales tax,
either.
Despite Department of Revenue records
showing less than 11 percent of potentially
qualifying business participating, he said
Highlands' collections exceed those of
Florida's 33 other rural counties.
The commissioners must hold two public
hearings before voting on adding the third
cent. A fourth cent is available local govern-
ments who host major league sports teams.
"Highlands County will never be able to
.collect the fourth penny," Brantley said.

In an eight-page document
delivered to the media and
county staff, Warren summa-
rized his criticisms in five
points:
Cost justification flawed,
won't realize savings.
County government
plans to compete with the pri-
vate sector. "When has gov-
ernment been able to offer
goods and services cheaper
than private industry?'o he
asked.
County lacks experience
with asphalt plants. Said land-
fill gas is a poor heat source.
Undetermined affect on
tax base.
Only 12 percent of avail-
able gas would be used, leav-


ing the 88 percent balance to
be flared off.
"These burners are
adjustable and variable,"
Wheeler said of the proposed
plant, countering the points
made by Warren. "The bidder
will provide training for our
staff. We're confident we can
do this."
He said the asphalt pro-
duced by county would be
subject to in-house inspec-
tions and independent analy-
sis.
"They're claiming that we
use too much sand in our
mix," Wheeler said, noting
that analysis of a road recent-
ly by Better Roads shows a
similar mix as to what he's
proposing. "The statement
that the core mix pales in
comparison is unfounded."

SEBRING A 17-year-
old was arrested late last
week for her involvement in
the armed robbery of a
Kentucky Fried Chicken in
April.
Beth Schaad of Avon Park
reportedly confessed to par-
ticipating in the planning and
execution of the robbery by
taking the two gunmen to the
store after they contacted her
by phone, allegedly telling
her they would pick her up
and find a place to rob.
The group arrived at the
KFC restaurant at 960 U.S.
27 in Sebring and parked in a
secluded area allowing a
clear view of the building.
They allegedly wrapped
their faces in shirts and went
inside, telling Schaad to drive
to the nearby Ohrt's mobile
home park and wait for them,
the report said.
The two men entered the
restaurant, armed, saying "I
will kill you," and forced the
manager to open the safe. The
manager opened the safe and
the two gunmen stole $870.
After a short time Schaad
and the two alleged robbers
reunited, discussing the rob-
bery after they met at the
vehicle, reports stated.
In an interview with
Highlands County Sheriffs
Office detectives mid-July,
one of the gunmen confessed
to planning and participating
in the robbery, confirming
Schaad's accounts of how the
robbery was conducted.
Schaad was charged with
robbery with a firearm, a first
degree felony.

A high voltage job with electrifying possibilities


.- .


TWIglN' IT
WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley

I am wired, juiced, buzzed;
plugged in and turned on.
Energized.
That's because I recently
spent time with a Progress
Energy work crew in the
field and I got a jolt out of
the assignment.
Sorry about that pun.
Charge it up to excitement.
Then think about electrici-
ty.
Made up of a stream of
electrons, electricity moves
like running water. It is pure
energy on an earthly scale, as
big as geological time is
long. I could as easily lift
Mount Olympus with one
hand as grab a bolt of light-
ning with two.
Unseen but heard and felt,
electricity doesn't hurt the
people who work with it it
kills them.
Yet we safely create, trans-
form, transport and consume
millions of volts of electricity


every day without thinking
about it at all unless for
some reason the power goes
out, or the television falls
into the bubble bath.
And we use electricity in
more ways than one. In an
exquisite delusion, we use
this force of nature to pretend
we are stronger than nature
- lighting the night, cooling
off summer, creating heart
pacemakers.
Thanks to electricity we
see ourselves in control,
while ironically we are more
often controlled by the
remote, the motor, the switch.
We are so dependent, in
fact, that the loss of electrici-
ty seriously disrupts our post-
modern, automated, cell-tow-
ered, air-conditioned lives.
Ask what most people
remember about the hurri-
canes of 2004, for example,
and the majority talk about
doing without electricity
afterward.
All of this means the peo-
ple who keep electricity
flowing in this country face
two levels of challenge: The
dangerous physical work
dealing with hard to imagine
power, and dealing with cus-
tomers who, when powerless,
are not always at their best.
To work for an electric
company, therefore, you have
to be a blend of storm chaser,
Mr. Wizard and Oprah
Winfrey.
Add to that teacher.
Like the four individuals
who educated me the other
day.
When I approached
Progress Energy about work-


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Christopher Curlee has been a line man for 10 years, the
last five with Progress Energy. He loves his work. 'Once
you've had that feeling you might leave, but you'll come
back. It is the ultimate power. It's like playing with a loaded
gun pointed at your head one mistake and you're dead.
But no robot is going to replace you, you can work any-
where, and we have so many safety precautions I'd have to
be having a bad day to die.' Tuffley took this shot while
inside the cherry picker bucket.


Ground man Thomas 'Kirby' Whitehouse has climbed part
way up a pole to secure a grounding wire. Power to the pole
had been cut while he worked. While about 40 percent of
distribution lines are underground, the rest still on poles, he
and his co-workers said, because it is expensive to bury
them three feet deep in the first place. But even more
because when the wires are hidden problems are much
more difficult to locate, troubleshoot and repair.


ing with a line man, the
response was enthusiastic
from the start. Jerry Miller,
community relations manag-
er, got the process going
right away. When the time


came to get together, the
company not only assigned
me to a two-man crew line
man Christopher Curlee and
ground man Thomas "Kirby"
Whitehouse but arranged


for Distribution Field
Supervisor Rick Smith and
company spokesperson
Cherie Jacobs to be available
as well.
What one person didn't
know another one did, and
between them they told sto-
ries and used analogies that
made a complicated science
understandable.
Keep in mind, with me
you're getting the fifth-grade
version.
The first thing I had to get
my mind around was that
electricity is a commodity to
be bought and sold, like
oranges.
It is produced in fossil fuel
and nuclear power plants


using turbines that spin gen-
erators (Progress Energy has
14 power plants in Florida,
one of them nuclear). The
excess created in one place
can be moved to another and
used there.
The second thing I learned
was the difference between
transmitting electricity and
distributing it.
Transmission refers the to
act of getting a stream of
electrical energy from the
production plant to a general
region.
Distribution means divert-
ing the electricity from the
main stream into the individ-

TUFFLEY
Continued from 11A
ual home.
Smith, the field supervisor,
said to compare taller high-
voltage transmission lines to
Interstate highways creat-
ing a cross-country grid that
serves as a super highway for
electrical energy.
Then he said to picture the
city streets that distribute the
vehicles coming off the
Interstate. The smaller the
road, the fewer cars it can
accommodate and the slower
the vehicles have to go.
In other words, the differ-
ence between a transmission
line and a distribution line is
like the difference between
traveling in a pack of cars at
75 miles an hour on 1-95 and
being alone going 35 miles
an hour on Lakeview Drive.
Using substations with
transformers, operators not
only keep the high voltage at
a constant rate along the way,
they can step it down as elec-
tricity enters a city, and wind
it up as the electricity leaves.
Keep in mind that voltage
refers to how fast the elec-
tricity is moving. Amperes,
or amps, refer to the volume,
or how much electricity is
there.
Smith explained it this
way: Amps are the water in a
hose, volts are how fast the
water is flowing.
This leads directly to the
third thing I had to take in -
electricity has substance.
This is important because it
means electricity is subject to
friction as it moves, and fric-
tion called resistance in
electrical parlance, and meas-
ured in Ohms- wears the
flow down so both speed and
volume are lost.
However, years ago some-
one discovered that the high-
er the speed, or voltage, the


less friction affected electric-
ity, which is why the electri-
cal grid is built around those
long distance, high-voltage,
super pathways.
Typically, electricity trav-
els the super pathway at
230,000 or more volts. That
is stepped down to 69,000
volts as it enters a communi-
ty and is still on transmission
lines. Local substations step
down the flow further, to
7,200 volts, and transfer it to
the distribution lines that run
on wooden poles along city
streets. Finally it travels
through small pole transform-
ers and enters a home at 240
volts.
There are fuses and switch-
es strategically placed
throughout the system, some-
thing like a railroad's track
.system, so electricity can be
rerouted quickly. It also
means trouble spots can be
isolated.
Given the dangers and
complexities involved with
delivering electricity, person-
nel are highly screened.
Qualities such as self-
reliance and problem solving
are valued.
While South Florida
Community College has
recently established a two-
year training program, train-
ing traditionally has been
done in-house through a
combination of classes,
workshops and experience.
It takes dedication and per-
sistence to advance. The
entry level position, ground
man, is not allowed to work
on anything that is energized.
He or she has to wear an
orange helmet designating
their beginner's status.
Basically a gofer, a ground
man's main duty is to learn.
After a year and a half, he or
she may be eligible to
become an apprentice. An
apprentice can work in low
voltage situations, from 0 to

Progress Energy trucks are self-contained workshops, capa-
ble of handling just about any problem on site. The cherry
picker bucket can rise 45 feet into the air and turn 360
degrees. Curlee is in the bucket, preparing to trade a small-
er pole transformer for a larger one. Note his gloves.
Whitehouse, preparing the bucket's carry arm, is an entry
level ground man. That means he can't even ride in the
bucket, because he is not yet allowed around live wires. To
learn, however, he conducts the required pre-job briefing,
reviewing what needs to be done, listing site conditions and
possible dangers, as well as gathering the equipment
needed.


600 volts.
Finally, there are line men
and trouble men. Line men
do the bulk of the work in the
field. Some specialize in
transmission lines, some in
distribution. There are line
men who work while stand-


ing on the skid of a high fly-
ing helicopter, tending to the.
huge, out-of-the-way high
voltage towers.
The best of the line men
may choose to become trou-
ble men individuals who
are first responders to out-


ages. Their job is to trou-
bleshoot a problem and fix it
if possible, or raise the alarm
if they can't.
Current starting pay for a
ground man is $14.11 an
hour; for apprentices $16.73
an hour; and for line men
$20.60.
The money is well earned.
Roughly 19 line men work
all of Highlands County and
a portion of Hardee County,
hooking up new buildings,
installing new lights, making
upgrades and responding to
emergencies. Days often run
over the 10 hours scheduled,
and working in the hot sun is
exhausting.
Then there are the special
challenges.
For example, Curlee and
Whitehouse, the field crew,
made me put on the gloves a
line man wears when he's
working near the wires. They
actually 'wear two pairs of
gloves, one over the other.
The bottom pair are elbow
length and made of heavy
rubber, the top are leather
work gloves. Either pair is
enough to cancel the benefit
of opposable thumbs. Worn
together, I could barely bend
my fingers, let alone grip the
cotter pin Curlee put out for
me to pick up. How he man-
aged to remove or fasten nuts
and bolts, or handle tools,
and do it quickly, I can't
imagine.
Also the gloves are
fiendishly hot. When Curlee
politely refrained from shak-
ing hands when we first met,
explaining that his were wet,
I didn't understand what he
meant until I wore the gloves
and felt the sweat sluicing
down my arms. You get
wrinkly, raisin fingers wear-
ing those gloves, that's how
wet they are inside.
Which,gave me pause,
considering.

Started in 1967, the PCI
Plant Certification program
enables precast plants of any
size and in any region to
demonstrate their commit-
ment to quality principles and
practices through an inde-
pendent 120-point audit that
examines all aspects of the
plant operation. Certified
plants undergo at least two
unannounced audits each
year, while new participants


agree to three audits during
the first year.
Florida Precast Industries
passed its first unannounced
regular audit in mid-July. The
company was then certified in
the PCI Plant Certification
Program as a producer in cat-
egory C2 Prestressed
Hollowcore and Repetitive
Products.
Plant certification is one of
several positive changes
noted by Florida Precast
Industries in the last four
months. On March 30, the
company announced it would
operate as a subsidiary of The
Spancrete Group, Inc., a
leader in the precast industry.
More recently, Dave Gross, a
new general manager with an


aggressive plan for success,
was announced.
Headquartered in Sebring,
Florida Precast Industries,

Here's how to decode some

Annual percentage rate
(APR): The interest rate you'll
be charged if you carry for-
ward any balance due. Credit
cards often have different
APRs for purchases, cash
advances and balance transfers,
so make sure a low APR in one
category isn't offset by unrea-
sonably high APRs in others.
If a low introductory APR is
offered, note for how long and
what the rate rises to afterward.
Also ask whether the APR is
"fixed" (may fluctuate, but
only after you're notified) or
"variable" (can move unex-
pectedly, without prior notifi-
cation).
Grace period: The number
of days you have to pay your
bill in full without being
charged interest. Beware of
short grace periods and note
that there's usually no grace

handy in emergencies, cash
advances can become very
expensive loans if you don't
pay them off quickly. Ask
about each card's cash advance
APR, fees (whether per trans-
action or percentage of
advance) and any other limits
that may apply.
A few more tips
Ask what other terms may
change besides the teaser rate
when the introductory period
ends.

Keep it in the open

Either out of ignorance or on purpose, local officials
sometimes err on the side of shutting out the public.
Such a move takes us down the path of creating confu-
sion and distrust.
An example of this would be the recent move that the
Avon Park City Council has made regarding the local
CRAs.
After many years of arguing that having three differ-
ent CRA boards was the proper thing to do, the city
council decided to consolidate all three boards into one.
A board that the city council members would them-
selves sit on.
This change happened within a matter of weeks, and
the sitting CRA boards, and their chairs, were excluded
from participating in this decision. This move prompt-
ed one chairman to resign.
Since that change, citizens on the old CRA boards,
now called 'Advisory Boards,' have tried without suc-
cess to supply input from those who live in the district.
These groups have also asked city council in public
meetings for clarification and direction, to no avail.
The monthly advice, and votes, of the advisory
boards are being overturned with little explanation or
discussion.
From these actions, it seems that the city staff has its
own ideas on how to make those blighted areas better,
and are taking little notice of the voices of the people
who live and work there. Closing off valuable informa-
tion on how the taxpayers in those CRA districts want
their taxes spent.
In recent weeks, a donation to a local non-profit
organization, a practice used in the past and that was
advised appropriate by city staff, was overturned by the
now City Council/CRA Board. This immediately
prompted questions of why.
In response, the city council held a hastily prepared
"special meeting" to revoke promised monies to anoth-
er non-profit organization to make things "fair."
The only official response to the loss funds for each
of these groups was when the mayor asked each group
at the close of the special meeting where public dona-
tions couldbe made.
, Where is this overall plan that the Avon Park council
and staff are proposing, and why are the citizens with-
in those CRA districts not allowed a voice of what that
plan will be?
When the opaque veil of confusion and silence is
dropped over what the local government is trying to do,
it is time for everyone to take a closer look at your local
governments.
We believe being more open enables the public to
trust that government agencies are really doing the best
they can for the taxpayers.


Parents need to be responsible

when it comes to teen drinking


Lindsay Lohan, Britney
Spears, Nicole Richie, Paris
Hilton, idols of many young
girls, have all been involved
in excessive drinking result-
ing with DUI arrest.
Observers say their behavior
is being enabled by their par-
ents and associates around
them.
The "social host law" is a
little known law that makes
adults criminally and civilly
liable if they provide alco-
holic beverages to children
guest who die or sustain
injury as a result of acci-
dents.
Florida is one of 35 states
that have pass "social host
laws." The drinking age is 21
in 50 states, including the
district of Columbia.
In Florida it is a second
degree misdemeanor for any
person over 18 years old hav-
ing control of any residence
to allow an open house party
to take place at this residence
where person knows alcohol
is possessed or consumed by
an individual under age 21
and fails to take reasonable
steps to prevent possession
or consumption.
Parents have to realize that
they become foster parents
when other children visit
their homes. However, par-
ents having the need to
appear "cool" assume the
"ostrich mentality."
An expert said "you
assume responsibility when
children are in your home,
and should be aware of their
actions at all times.

Reports are that it was
homecoming and the Huskles
hosted a party for about 30
young people in the base-

Huskies, who were upstairs,

Shut down the Internet? I don't think so, Sir Elton


Singer Elton John admits he's some-
what of a technophobe. He doesn't own
a cell phone or an iPod. He refers to
himself as a "Luddite" when it comes to
making music. While he has released his
back catalogue of albums for digital
download, he has come out against ille-
gal downloading of his music.
Maybe that helps explain his attitude
concerning the Internet.
He wants to shut it down, claiming it
is harmful to the creation of good quali-
ty music.
He wants people to get out and spend
time with each other instead of sitting in
their homes, making their own records.
He thinks that instead of blogging, peo-
ple should be marching in the streets.
According to an article I read in the
online version of Britain's "The Sun,"
the singer hopes the next movement in
music will shut down the World Wide
Web.
"There's too much technology avail-
able," Elton John is quoted as saying.
He thinks it would be a grand experi-
ment to shut down the Internet for five
years and see what sort of art is created
during that time.
Well, that's one man opinion. Me? I
disagree with just about everything
Elton John has said about the Internet,

though I share his opinion about illegal
downloads. The word for downloading
something without permission is "steal-
ing." Are we all clear on that? Good.
But close down the Internet? That's a
tad much. Especially for me, who
spends so much time on it. My two
sons, who spend a large amount of time
on the World Wide Web, would take to
the streets as the singer suggests but
to protest the end of the Internet. I don't
think that's what Elton John has in
mind.
What do I use the Internet for? Where
shall I begin? I use it to keep in touch
with friends far and wide. I use it to
look.up topics for this column or do
research when I need it. I download
music and television episodes (quite
legally, thank you very much).
I look up potential markets for stuff I
write. I get news from several Web
sites. I get game tips (OK, that last is
not the most important thing I do on the
Web, but it's fun).
Does the Internet stifle art? I admit
that I can't speak to music, since I don't

A sad cartoon
Editor:
As far back as I can
remember, cartoons have
always fascinated me.
As a small child just look-
ing. at pictures I was able to
bring the images to life,
make funny stories from
imagination, giggling at I
know not what!
Seeing Sunday's edition of
the News-Sun, I sat spell-
bound studying the Uncle
Sam cartoon. "Just thinking
aboui it hurts."
What a worried looking,
tired, discouraged, old uncle!
Bills carelessly tossed
aside and a stack held loosely
in a work-weary hand. His
chin propped on the other
hand resting on closed
knuckles, a sign of mental
depression.
I saw what looked like fear
in his eyes beneath a fur-
rowed brow and thought,
"How sad that we have come
to this."
Yes, it does hurt, but how
did we come to this?
Every action has a reac-
tion. What brought Uncle
Sam to the brink of despair,
so bad that it hurts just to
think about it?
Then I was caught up in a


tangle of questions of my
imagination, or was it imagi-
nation?
Where has the innocence
and purity of America gone,
the teachings I learned as a
child? Or was it just a fable,
believed necessary for me to
learn? Jesus said, "There is
nothing hid that shall not be
revealed."
When the Pilgrims landed
on Plymouth Rock that first
winter was bitter cold. The
Indians stepped into action.
They taught our people how
to hunt animals for food, how
to fish, how to build shelters
against the harshness of the
wind and storms. Later the
native Americans taught the
Pilgrims how to plant gar-
dens and a host of other
skills of survival.
And what was our reac-
tion?
We stole the Indians' land
by killing as many as we
could. We "took no prison-
ers" and showed them no
mercy. We drove them off
into the wilderness and kept
their settlements for our-
selves. Oh, but all this beau-
tiful land would be impossi-
ble to till without help! We
needed cheap labor back
then, just as we do today.


Greed.
So we bought slaves, black
skinned men, women and
children from Africa. They
were brought by shiploads
and sold inauctions. The
price was right and once we
owned them we had free
labor.
Today we have slaves
trucked in from Mexico,
slaves from Haiti and other
poor countries, smuggled in
by boat undercover of night
wading to shore along our
southern coastline, even as
far north as Long Boat Key
and beyond.
Cheap labor quickly
absorbed and blending into
our society with the help of
wealthy businesses looking
to make money on "the
cheap." Laws? What laws?
Uncle Sam knows we have
a written Constitution, but of
what use is it if our govern-
ment doesn't recognize and
enforce the laws written
therein? No wonder Uncle
Sam wrestles with fear and
despair!
Our lust for money, power
and oil prompted America to
attack a country that could
provide us with all of that.
We could cover up the awful-

write songs. It seems to me that there
are still good songs being created even
with the Internet around, but that's my
opinion.
As far as the printed page goes, I find
the Internet does have one disadvantage:
If I am not careful, it will pull me away
from typing words, enticing me with
interesting things to look at while I'm
struggling with a plot point. Since pro-
ducing words is sort of required for
writing, not doing so is a bad thing.
But sometimes stuff on the Web
inspires me to get words written.
This column is a prime example. Had
I not found the story, I would not be
writing this column. You would not be
reading my opinion about the Internet
and file sharing.
Elton John, you don't want to use the
Internet? Fine by me. You can continue
to create without it. No one is making
you use it.
But don't take it away from those of
us who find it helpful in our day to day
living or our art. Some of us find it
helpful. Let us use it as we see fit.
Now if you'll all excuse me, I need to
look up some gaming tips.

Being bullied

leaves scars

that don't heal

This month, the word
bully comes to my mind as a
topic to write about. What
does the word mean? The
online free dictionary says: A
person who is habitually
cruel or overbearing, espe-
ciall. to smaller or weaker
people: hiiid', ffii.n or thug
pimp; ,qpe who treats in
overbearing or intimidating
manner; to make or force
:6ne's way aggressively or by
intimidation.
The reason I'm discussing
this subject is, as a kid, I was
a Victim. It wasn't fun. Of
course, bullying can range
ffim one kid demanding
another kid's lunch money,
to taunting him on the way
home from school (which
happened to me), to giving
him a brutal beating.
As a kid I was told
"they're just kids, ignore it,
pray for them, etc." So I
tried to ignore it, prayed for
them, avoided them, etc. But
it got so bad that I had to sit
behind the bus driver on the
bus (no one wanted me to sit
by them and had to sit with
teachers in the lunch room).
I had to be the understanding
one and just endure it.
Finally, after I completed
eighth grade and after one
boy in particular decided to
start spitting on me, my mom
took me out of school (I was
15 2, my grades were good)
and put me in the GED
course at the local college.
They accepted me because
my grades were good and I
would be 16 in a few
months. And I received
enough points for a high
school diploma after all (it
says that on the document).
Another incident that is
very vivid in my mind is
being in a classroom where
the kids were being cruel
again. I started crying and
the teacher walked over,
asked what was going on,
etc. I told her and asked to
be excused so I could go to
the bathroom to freshen up
and she said "No." I still
remember her name. And
whenever I do remember, I
have to just pray a blessing
over her because I can't
afford not to forgive her lack
of compassion and under-
standing.
Something is wrong with
that picture when the people
in authority don't allow a
student who is crying to go
freshen up, regardless of who
he/she thought started it.

JARGON
Continued from 14A
Should be easy to tell as the
victim would be crying, not
the perpetrator.
My mom had asked the
school about the boy follow-
ing me home, got no
response so she told the boy
if he didn't stop my brother
would beat him up. He
stopped. He ended up becom-
ing a friend, ironic, huh? You
see, the problem is if the
authorities don't do some-
thing about this, the people
are forced to take matters
into their own hands (which,
of course, gets them in trou-
ble). It's so easy to slough
off this stuff when it's not
your kid. But in this day and
age, since it takes a village to
raise a kid, they're "all" our
kids.
I also have a family mem-
ber who was pushed down by
a teacher and a DARE officer
on the school bus. (He does
have ADD, so this causes
him to have his own list of
issues. I'm not saying he
wasn't ever at fault). His
grandmother, who raised
him, went to the school
board about the incidents and
they wouldn't even hear her.
Can you see the frustration
it causes for the victims?
Should they still be stewing
over it years later? Yes,
because those kids are deal-
ing with the consequences of
a lack of education, lack of
social skills,.lack of respect
for authority because of mis-
treatment or lack of concern.
He's not in school today,
but is taking night classes at
the college to complete his
education. He has a brilliant
mind, could be an electrician,
a computer technician, a
mechanic, whatever he
wants. I just hope he musters
up enough self-confidence to
pursue a career and not just
fall by the wayside.
What about the kids who
are beat up until they have
become a vegetable? They
have no life, their family is:
having-to suppbit them the
rest of their lives and the per-
petrator goes on to live a ful-
filled life.
Again, it's easy to say the
parents should "go on with
their lives" but it's hard
when they have to carry their
teenager to the bathroom
every time he has to go,
when they hear the bully is
excelling in school, etc.
Could it be they're just try-


ing to prevent it from hap-
pening to one of "our kids?"
It's a tough pill to swallow
and truly it takes a lot of
prayer asking God for help to
"get over it."
I'm not sharing all this for
sympathy ... I'm sharing it in
defense of other kids today
that have to endure the same
treatment. What my mom
couldn't understand was the
ones in authority who kept
insisting I endure it and not
deal with the ones being the
bullies? Why.they were
allowed to keep misbehaving
without consequences and
ones like me just suffered in
silence?
Of course with Health and
Rehabilitative Services
guidelines that schools have
to abide by, it makes it diffi-
cult for school officials to
discipline students, etc. I
understand that. Maybe they
can think of some discipli-
nary action that will cause
these bullies to answer for
their cruelty instead of "slap-
ping them on the hand" and
letting it go on and on and
on.
Does this affect my grown-
up life? Very much so. And if
it weren't for faith in the
Lord, I wouldn't have come
this far. I don't feel equal to
my peers, even though every-
one treats me very kind. It's
just something I have to fight
every day and in time it gets
easier to deal with. But yes,
being bullied does scar a per-
son for their adult life.
There is a bill trying to be
passed called the Jeffrey-
Johnson Stand-Up for All
Students Act on this very
topic.. All we need to do is
write our Senators and
Representatives to ask for
their support, which is what
I'm going to do. Maybe, just
maybe, the ones "we put in
office" will listen to the peo-
ple and pass it. If not, I guess
all we can do is keep trying
until they do.
Again, if we want to see
change in the system, it's
~ -.ii to( have tostart at a
grassroots level. Let's get
behind the ones who have the
courage to face the ones in
office and demand change
instead of labeling them as
"fanatics" or "troublemak-
ers." After all, our kids are
the next generation that will
lead this great country of
ours.

Use Harder Hall for
local government
Editor:
Regardinr the news of -
Sebring getting stuck with
Harder Hall, I think the gen-
tleman who wrote in to (one
of) the papers hit the nail on
the head: Use Harder Hall for
local government purposes.
Every department and enti-
ty is running out of space.
The Hall has had substantial
renovation done already, and
to build another government
structure would cost at least


as much as the completion of
the Hall's work, if not con-
siderably more.
The city's debt for the
building could be paid by the
construction segment of its
budget; the area's require-
ment for more office/business
spaces would be taken care
of, and ... think of the park-
ing! No more circling the
block, wedging between
vehicles and taking your life
in your hands just trying to
get out of the parking areas.
(Parking for access to the,
Court House would be easier
to find).
Our Sheriff could have the
"government" building anfd
perhaps even the Annex to
cover her need for expansion,
so more investment can be
avoided there, and v hen the
time came, the jail could be
expanded into the building or
area currently occupied by
that Department's present
Officess'
Another plus: Sebring,
would have a very attractive
location for its official busi-
ness, and an historic one to
boot.
In a time such as this with
cutbacks everywhere, it
makes a lot of fiscal sense to
use the building ourselves.
Winners all around.

Knowledge prepares servicemembers, family members for academic rigors


By JOHN J. KRUZEL
American Forces Press Service
A company that makes test-prepa-
ration products for students gearing
up for college entrance exams is
offering free materials to service-
members and their families, sacrific-
ing a chunk of its bottom line for
those on the front lines.
eKnowledge is an online- and CD-
ROM-based learning program that
teaches test-taking techniques for
the Scholastic Aptitude Test, or SAT,
and American College Test, or ACT,
among others. The company plans to
expand its coverage soon by offering
complimentary programs to Junior
ROTC members.

executive officer and a former
Marine, fought in Vietnam as


Group, about eKnowledge's plan to
donate study materials to boost
troops' and their family members'
chances at gaining admission
The seven NFL players Mark
Anderson of the Chicago Bears, Jon
Bradley of the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers, Garrick Jones of the
Atlanta Falcons, Corey Williams of
the Green Bay Packers, Jason Radar
of the Miami Dolphins, Ahmaad
Galloway of the San Diego

pathy for servicemembers whose
income might be strained by $300 or
$400 price tags attached to premium
test-prep products.
"A sergeant in the Air Force sta-
tioned in Singapore who's got a cou-
ple of teenage kids that are getting
ready to go to college can't afford
$400 or $500 apiece for these test-
preparation products," Beall said.


"A lot of these folks have children in
the JROTC program, so they're
going to have help with tuition
because they're going to go to
school on IROTC scholarships.
"But that doesn't help them finan-
cially with their ACT and SAT test
preparation, which ultimately is
going to have an influence on which
schools they can go to," he added.
SAT and ACT exam scores often


weigh heavily in college admission
judgments and can tip the scales
toward an applicant's acceptance or
rejection. Beall estimates students
improve their scores 30 to 40 percent
when they prepare with eKnowledge
products, compared to those who
don't use a premium-prep program.

$24 million in
grants available
for homeless vets
Special to the News-Sun
Homeless veterans in 37
states will get more assis-
tance thanks to the
Department of Veterans
Affairs (VA) selection of 92
community organizations to
receive funds for transitional
housing this year.
The VA has identified the
public and community non-
profit groups eligible to
receive payments for housing
and supportive services to
homeless veterans through
three VA programs.
Fifty-three organizations
will receive $10 million to
provide about 1,000 transi-
tional housing beds under
VA's per diem program; 36
groups will receive $12 mil-
lion for programs for home-
less veterans who are serious-
ly mentally, women, includ-
ing women with children,
frail elderly or terminally ill;
and. three organizations will
receive about ,2 million for
variouss technical assistance
projects.
The grants are part of the"
VA's continuing efforts to
reduce homelessness among
veterans. The VA has the
largest integrated network of
homeless assistance programs
in the country.
Much work remains to be
done, but the partnership
effort is making significant
progress. Today, it is estimat-
ed that fewer than 200,000
veterans may be homeless on
an average night, which rep-
resents a 20 percent reduction
during the past six years.
Grants in Florida include:
Cocoa Volunteers of
America of Florida, Inc.
$165,756 for 40 beds for the
mentally ill; Daytona Beach -
'The Salvation Army $79,971
for 7 ,beds; Gainesville -
Volunteers of America of

beds; Kissimmee The

VA announces new nursing academy sites


University of Florida partners
with VA in nursing initiative
Special to the News-Sun
To provide compassionate, highly-trained
nurses to look after the health care needs of
the nation's veterans, the Department of
Veterans Affairs (VA) is launching a new ini-
tiative that partners the Department's world-
class health care system with four of the coun-
try's finest nursing schools.
The VA selected nursing schools in Florida,
California, Utah and Connecticut for special
partnerships with local VA health care facili-
ties as part of a new VA Nursing Academy.
"The expanded role of VA in the education
of nurses will ensure the Department has the
nurses needed to continue our world-class
health care for veterans," said Secretary of
Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson.
"Our strengthened partnerships with these
four great 'nursing schools will enhance the
faculty and clinical resources needed to edu-
cate nurse."
University of Florida is the one of the first
four nursing schools selected to take part in
the new program. The others are San Diego
State University, University of Utah in Salt
Lake City and Fairfield University in
Fairfield, Conn.

The four VA-nursing partnerships were
selected from among 42 applications.
Additional VA-nursing school partnerships
will be selected in 2008 and 2009, for a total
of 12 partnerships in the five-year pilot pro-
gram.
The American Association of Colleges of
Nursing has reported that more than 42,000
qualified applicants were turned away from
nursing schools in 2006 because of insuffi-
cient numbers of faculty, clinical sites, class-
room space and clinical mentors.
The VA currently provides clinical educa-
tion for approximately 100,000 health profes-
sional trainees annually, including students
from more than 600 schools of nursing.
The VA Nursing Academy was recently
established to address the nationwide shortage
of nurses while ensuring that veterans contin-
ue to receive world class care and services.
The Academy's Enhancing Academic
Partnerships pilot program enables competi-
tively selected VA-nursing school partnerships
to expand the number of nursing faculty,
enhance the professional and scholarly devel-
opment of nurses, increase student enrollment
by about 1,000 students and promote innova-
tions in nursing education.
Further information about the pilot program
can be obtained from VA's Office of Academic
Affiliations web site at www.va.gov/oaa.

Special to the News-Sun
A clothing allowance may
be paid to a veteran who has a
service connected disability
or a disability that requires he
or she wear or use a prosthet-
ic or orthopedic device that
wears out or tears clothing.
A service-connected
anatomical loss or loss or use
of a hand or foot is presumed
to require the use of a pros-
thetic or orthopedic device
that wears out the clothing.
The clothing allowance may
also be paid if the veteran

skin condition, medication
prescribed by a physician
which causes irreparable
damage to the veteran's outer
garments. A skin condition
requiring use of medication is
not considered stai, and a
'4dftni4tiio atiAots4 ,quired

The application form for
the clothing allowance is VA

tion, for the attention of the
Prosthetic and Sensory Aids

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop

Eyesight and

hindsight
Have you ever struggled
for a word to name certain
symptoms, but simply can-
not describe what you're
feeling.
This happened to me'
about 32 years ago.
I had a pre-school child
and was a single mom.
Suddenly, to add to the
many challenges I was
already facing, I began to
feel ill. Well, not ill, exactly.
It was so hard to describe.
I would have a sense that
I might faint. But, I never
did. Or I thought I would be
dizzy, but I never actually
was. Yet these unexplainable
symptoms persisted mak-
ing my legs wobbly and
affecting my whole body;
compelling me to lie down
and close my eyes for a
while. I feared the onset of a
serious, debilitating illness
that would affect me caring
for my son.
The lighting in stores
bothered me. But, once in
the car with my sunglasses
on, I felt a little better, .
The doctor did a variety
of tests all of which came
back negative. I was fine.
But, I didn't feel like it.
Then one day I noticed
the symptoms seemed to
start with my eyes after
working at my typewriter or
doing a lot of reading. As
the day progressed, so did
the symptoms. I mentioned
this to my doctor and he
immediately made an
appointment for me to see
an eye doctor.
After a thorough exami-
nation, the eye doctor said,
"You have a muscle imbal-
ance in your eyes."
"Imbalance," I declared.
"That's how I've been feel-
ing. I just couldn't describe
it."
Glasses with prisms were
prescribed and my problem
was solved.
This doctor had given
expression to what I had
been struggling to put into
words. And I've been forev-
er grateful.
The same can be true
spiritually or emotionally.
We may be going through
a time of spiritual dryness or
emotional upheaval. We
don't need for anyone to tell
us something we didn't
know before.
However, if someone
gives expression to what has
been rumbling around in our
brains but for lack of per-
ception hasn't been artic-
ulated, that truth uttered will
be like a light coming on
and the benefit will be
immense.
Second Timothy 2:15,
NIV, teaches us to "Do your
best to present yourself to
God as one approved, a
workman who does not need
to be ashamed and who cor-
rectly handles the word of
truth."
By abiding in God's
Word, we may well be
someone's answer to prayer
when we speak a word that
is illuminating. Eyesight -
whether physical or spiritual
may be restored and in
hindsight, we'll thank God
that he could use us in such
a way. Selah-

Diversions



Good archers train to hit the mark


I remember the first time I ever held a
bow and arrow in my hands. It was at a
resort that offered archery as one of its
activities.
Ken was a natural. But for me, it was-
n't so easy.
First of all, the 'how to' of handling
the bow and arrow was challenging -
not to mention getting the arrow to hit
the target instead of landing on the hay-
strewn floor.
Nevertheless, we had fun.
However, the next day every upper
body muscle ached. Had this sport
become my focus, I would have toned
my muscles and hit the mark more pre-
cisely.
In Psalm 127: 3-5, NIV, God tells us
that our children are like arrows.
"Sons are a heritage from the Lord,
children a reward from him. Like arrows
in the hands of a warrior are sons born
in one's youth. Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them."
The warrior is accomplished in using
his arrows. They don't fall to the
ground, but hit the intended target. His
focus is on excellence. And so must
ours be in raising our little "arrows."
When we are blessed with children, it
doesn't take long to see how different
they each are. Some are strong-willed;
while others are compliant. Some excel
in sports; while others are gifted musi-


cally or artistically. We see extroverted
and introverted personalities.
As parents we need to watch these
traits, gifts and talents and help point
our children in the right direction. In so
doing, we guide.them to hit the intended
mark for which they've been created -
the bullseye of their life's purpose.
A strong will may seem negative in a
child, but it isn't. It just needs to be
channeled so he can see how his
personality will be used by God. With
practice, he'll hit the bullseye of God's
will for his life.
Without strong-willed individuals, we
wouldn't have military leaders, dynamic
public servants, visionaries and entre-
preneurs willing to risk persisting
and not giving up.
On the other hand, a timid child
helped to develop to her fullest potential
may use her quiet nature to become a
compassionate listener, healer or behind
the scenes person who is content to qui-


etly serve.
That is the meaning of Proverbs 22:6,
NIV, which instructs parents to train up
a child in the way he should go and
when he's mature he won't depart from
it. We're to know our child's bent and
train him in how God has uniquely cre-
ated him.
Of course, the greatest guidance a
parent can give their children is helping
them to know their Creator from their
youth. With this relationship in place,
children are more apt to discover how
God has wired them and respond to
their parents' guidance. They'll be con-
nected to the Ultimate Source of guid-
ance for life and eternity.
And even if a child deviates from a
wise path, that training will still be a
part of him drawing him back in
maturity. The bull's-eye will always be
waiting.
Let's 'tone' our parenting muscles
from the time our children are young by
keeping our focus on God through
prayer and the Bible. Eventually, as
each "arrow" leaves our "quiver,"
they'll be more apt to hit the mark with
excellence.

Parenting by Heart is a monthly column
written byJan Merop, ofSebring, to be
featured in the News-Sun's Living sec-
tion.

Tom Freeman to teach series of art


classes at Lake Wales Art Center


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE WALES Artist Tom Freeman will
offer his adult painting class for 6 weeks
beginning Tuesday at the Lake Wales Arts
Center. The classes will be held from 6-9 p.m.
on Tuesday evenings through Sept. 11.
Freeman is a longtime resident of the Lake
Wales area. He attended high school in
Frostproof before he moved to Lake Wales. He
worked for 20 years at the Lake Wales High
School, teaching students and adult education
as well as serving as an assistant principal for
14 years. As a teacher, his greatest joy is see-
ing his students enthusiastic and having fun
with art. He believes that art should be
enjoyed and has dedicated himself to the com-
munity with his murals and his dynamic teach-
ing.
Students will be learning a new method of


painting using acrylic and watercolor. The
canvases are the same as for acrylic or oil, but
have been reformulated with gesso on- the can-
vas. The canvasses are the same size as tradi-
tional ones.
"This combination should be a lot of fun,"
Freeman said. "The students will enjoy it."
The old English style of watercolor works
with the acrylic for a new style. Freeman plans
to focus on Florida landscape painting using
local venues. The classes will be structured
with great leeway for artistic license.
Because he can only teach 10 to 15 in the
class, Freeman urged that his students register
and pay the fee promptly.
The cost for the series of classes is $80 for
members of the Lake Wales Arts Council and
$85 for non-members. To register call the Arts
Center at 863-676-8426.

Just what is a Soil and Water Conservation District?


The Highlands Soil and
Water Conservation District
is actually composed of vari-
ous agencies. The Highlands
County Natural Resources
Department, the Natural
Resource Conservation
Service (NRCS), and the
United States Department of
Agriculture (USDA) all work
together to address natural
resource concerns for local
citizens.
For example, the Board of
County Commissioner's
Natural Resource Department
enables the Highlands Soil
and Water Conservation
District to furnish additional
landowners with technical
support by providing office
space, basic supplies, com-
munications support and
staff. NRCS is a federal gov-
ernmetit agency within the
USDA that is dedicated to
assisting landowners and
operators in implementing
sustainable and economical
conservation practices.
Soil and Water


Conservation Districts bring
many people together includ-
ing private citizens, private
and public organizations, and
local, state and federal gov-
ernmental agencies, to come
up with ideas and support
regarding natural resource
issues.
Most counties in the
United States have a conser-
vation district. There are
approximately 3,000 districts
nationwide. As a result, citi-
zens in these districts are
being assisted with the con-
servation of natural resources
in their area. People are ben-
efiting by the conservation of
their local lakes, rivers, land,
forests, farms and wildlife.
The benefits these districts
provide are countless. They
include assistance to land
operators in best management
practices regarding conserva-
tion, restoration of wetlands,
prevention of erosion, protec-
tion of our precious ground-
water, planting vegetation,
addressing water quality


issues, controlling
exotic vegetation
and educating the
public regarding
natural resources
and conservation.
But how did these
districts get their
start? Back in the
1930's, an ecologi- N<
cal disaster of Fro
unprecedented pro- r
portions swept the Wate
nation. The Dust
Bowl followed a
severe drought in
the Great Plains, which
prompted Hugh Hammond
Bennett, the father of conser-
vation, to approach Congress
about the erosion problem in
the United States. Since the
dust was so bad that even the
White House was affected,
Congress voted unanimously
to pass legislation making it
a national policy to make soil
and water conservation a pri-
ority.
The first Soil and Water
Conservation District was


eWS
n The
arshed

Burgess


established in 1937
when President
Franklin D.
Roosevelt appealed
to all states to pass
legislation allowing
local landowners to
form these districts.
The Highlands Soil
and Water
Conservation
District was created
in 1942 and was
originally known as
the Istokpoga Soil
Conservation


District.
Katherine Waggaman was
a key player in the creation
of the first district in our
County. She was the first
woman Conservation District
supervisor in the United
States. Some of the activities
of the early district included
the rerouting of water and
drainage of land for develop-
ment. Many watershed proj-
ects were completed in the
1950's and were conducted
primarily to ease flooding


concerns around homes and
in agricultural lands.
Today, we have come a
long way regarding conserva-
tion. New techniques and
technology are being discov-
ered and utilized every day.
The Natural Resource
Conservation Service, with
the assistance of the United
States Department of
Agriculture, plays a major
role in offering local .
landowners financial and
technical assistance through
their local conservation dis-


tricts. For example, NRCS
offers programs to local
landowners to assist in the
areas of efficient irrigation
design, nutrient management,
grazing plans, fencing, pest
management, wetland
restoration, improved wildlife
habitat and many other areas.
So, next time you hear
about a Soil and Water
Conservation District, you'll
know what they do and how
they help the local citizens to
utilize best management
practices in the areas of natu-
ral resources and conserva-
tion. To learn more about

Conservation District, go to

Foundation offers

10 free dogwoods

Join in August to take advantage
of Trees for America campaign
Special to the News-Sun
Everyone who joins The National Arbor Day
Foundation during August will receive 10 free
white flowering dogwood trees.
The free trees are part of the nonprofit
Foundation's Trees for America campaign, a pro-
gram dedicated to environmental stewardship
through the planting of trees.
"The white flowering dogwoods will add year-
round beauty to homes and neighborhoods," said
John Rosenow, president of the Arbor Day
Foundation. "Dogwoods have showy spring flow-
ers, scarlet autumn foliage and red berries that
attract songbirds all winter."
The trees will be shipped postpaid between Oct.
15 and Dec. 10, at the right time for planting. The
six to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they
will be replaced free of charge. Planting instruc-
tions are enclosed with each shipment of trees.
Members of the Arbor Day Foundation will also
receive The Tree Book, which has information
about tree planting and care.
To receive the free trees, send a $10 membership
contribution to: Ten Dogwoods, National Arbor Day
Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, NE
68410, by Friday, Aug. 31 or join online at A white flowering dogwood tree.

Things you can do for your yard during a drought


By DEE DEE JACOBSON
Special to the News-Sun
As you know, severe rain-
fall deficits exist in the state
and dry weather emergency
plans have been implemented
in two water management
districts. This would include
a tightening of homeowner
irrigation restrictions. West
central Florida, for example,
is.curtailed to one day a
week watering. Here are a
few things you can keep in
mind during this time:

- Don't mow
Turf is already under
drought stress and when
grass is cut, this produces the
plant to use energy in length-
ening the leaf blade. The rule
of thumb is the shorter the


grass is cut then the shorter
the root system will be. If
you must mow, mow at the
very highest setting and make
sure the blades are very
sharp. A clean cut will loose
less water than a ragged cut.

Mulch
This helps prevent water
loss from the soil, decrease
.the amount of runoff, and
insulates the soil so it does
not get too hot. Remember to
keep mulch away from the
stems of plants to prevent
diseases. Large6particle
mulch, such as pine straw,
can be put down about three
inches thick. Mulches that
have a tendency to mat and
don't allow water to percolate
through as easily, such as oak


leaves, should be put down
about one inch thick.

Water deeply
Apply 1/2 to 3/4 inch of
water to the landscape. This
amount of water will pene-
trate about 8-12 inches deep
in the soil. When plants are
watered deeply they develop
a deep root system that is
better able to withstand
drought. Look for signs of
wilt before watering again.

Remove weeds
These uninvited plants
compete with your plants for
water and nutrients. Hand
pull if possible, this is more
effective'during drought
stress; plants are not actively
growing at these times which


makes herbicides ineffective.
Mulching is an excellent
weed suppressant,

Plant selection
Replace plants that die or
require a lot of water with
drought tolerant plants. Try
using native plants that are
well suited to Florida's
extremes in weather. Wait for
the rainy season to replant.

Hot-weather flowers


for our hot summer


We are now into
the hot, humid sea-
son here in south-
central Florida and
like so many other
residents of this
area, I am searching
for Flowers that will
survive this weather.
Unfortunately, many GI
of the flowers you
see for sale at the S
local outlets such as
petunias and impa-
tience will not last the sum-
mer.


The list of "summer
hardy" plants (not flowering
shrubs) is really not very
long. My search suggests that
some you may use are caladi-
ums, summer begonias, pen-
tas and dwarf pentas, portu-
laca, periwinkle and salvia.
Caladiums (Caladium hor-
tulanum) are technically not
a flower, but are a beautiful
ornamental that is very heat
and humidity tolerant. Plant
the bulbs when the soil is hot
and moist and they will ger-
minate rapidly. They do best
in partial shade.
Summer Begonias or
fibrous-rooted begonias or
wax begonias (Begonia sem-
perflorens) are originally
from the tropics. They do
best in partial shade, howev-
er the new hybrids will do
quite well in full sun. They
come in various flower and
leaf colors. .'
Pentas and dwarf pentas
(Pentas lanceolata) are avail-
able in many colors and are
enjoyed by butterflies and

hummingbirds.
They will do best in
partial sun.
Portulaca or moss
roses (Portulaca
grandiflora) grow
best in hot, dry
areas and in full
sun. They can be
found in a variety
of colors and they
do very nicely in
our sandy soils.
Periwinkle or


vinca or trailing myrtle
(Catharanthus roseus) grows
well in our acid soil and likes
full sun. It also comes in
many colors.
Salvia (Salvia nemerosa)
comes in many different vari-
eties and many are heat and
drought tolerant. They do
best in full sun and come in
many colors and are also
liked by butterflies and bees.
So when your other flow-
ers give up this summer you
may want to try some of the
above to keep your flower
beds pretty. For more infor-
mation on flowers for sum-
mer contact your nearest
Master Gardener office.

"> Jem f33:1-3, "Moreover,
thenof the Lord came
un miah the second

S time, while he was yet shut up

saying, Thus saith the Lord

Lord exists, He answers the call of His own, in
His timing. What area in your life do you need

From the
Front Row
John Bedell

Cross Country,

.the tough sell

It's my toughest sales
job all year.
SI try different tactics,
l have used a media
blitz and I have used
other people to smooth
the way.
It is still a challenge.
As the cross-country
coach at Walker
Memorial Academy in
Avon Park, I'll be
recruiting students to
join the team.
We do better recruit-
ing the guys but it is
difficult to convince five
girls to run cross-coun-
try.
I usually have to work
hard to pick up a fourth
and fifth runner for the
girls' squad.
It just is not easy to.
convince any teenager
to go outside in August
in Florida and run.
Common sense tells
everyone that this is a
bad idea that it is just
way too hot.
Joining a swim team
makes sense.
Who, wouldn't consid-
er splashing around in
the pool after school?
It definitely feels
good and coaches are
probably pretty quiet
about how cold that
pool might get at the
end of the season.
Girls' volleyball is
played in the air-condi-
tioned comfort of the
school gymnasium an
indoor sport in August
in Florida makes sense.
Plus it has a ball and
you get to hit it. Not to
mention, the cool cheers
for serving an ace.
Boys and girls golf is
out in the heat, but no
one is running from one
tee to the next. So it
doesn't really compare
to cross-country.
Football appeals to
the inner macho for the
guys.
The heat is brutal, but
you can take out your
frustrations by hitting
people.
Where else can you
hit someone as hard as
you can and get congrat-
ulated by both your
peers and the adult in
charge?
Football also carries
with it glory.
You can hope to be
.part of that glorious
team and walk up and
down the halls at school
with your gut in and
your chest out.
Football also has
cheerleaders. I have
never seen pom-poms at
f a cross-country meet.
Cross-country does
have team spirit.
There can be great
camaraderie on a team
of boys. or girls.
You suffer together
and you know hard you
all have worked to
lower your time.
You know how hot it
is after school as you
head for your workout.
After running a meet,
there is a positive feel-
ing as runners and
coaches see times come

SEBRING The Eighth
Annual Sebring Firemen
Memorial Golf Classic went
off well Saturday morning,
with more than 200 golfers
taking part in the fundraising
tournament for the Sebring
High School athletic program.
The size of the field called
for a split between Sebring
Municipal and the Harder
Hall Golf Course, with four-
somes teeing off at 8:30 a.m.
in a scramble format.
"This is probably the
biggest tournament we host
during the year with so many
golfers we have to use two
courses," Sebring Municipal
Professional Tom McClurg
said. "It was a lot of work,
and there were some last
minute changes that had to be
made, but (Harder Hall
Professional) John Phillips
and I were able to coordinate
it all real well and it ran very
smoothly for a tournament of
this size."
With the scramble format,
each player in the foursome
hitting from the best previous
shot, low scores were expect-
ed and certainly came in.
In the championship flight,
played on Harder, the team of


Scott Todd, Mike Sayne,
Robert Clarke and Dan Young
turned in a card with a hard-
to-believe, 21-under-par, 51.
With the handicap taken
out, that made for a net score
of 49 for top honors on the
day, and in the flight.
That score became less dif-
ficult to believe when the card
of Brian Bone, Haley Gildar
and Joel Walkup came in with
a 53 gross, giving them a 51
net, and second place in the
championship flight.
Fred Tucker, A.J. Balding,
Lans Bylund and William
Sebring carded a 54 with a net
of 52, which left them in a tie
with the quartet of Lon Crow,
Dave Manley, Jim and Jay
Belflower with the former
group winning a matching of
cards for third place.
In the first flight, a match-
ing of cards had to be used to
determine both the winner
and third place.
John Donahue, Bob
Panken, Dave Wright and Ted
Moore fired a 53, as did John
Danko, Tim McKenna, Troy
and Lisa Doty, with the first
group winning the card match
for top honors.

From left, Laura and Jim Griffin, Heidi Crutchfield, Joan Siracuse and Steve Gordon pause
for a picture before the mass of start of the Lake Placid, N.Y., Ironman.


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
Jim Griffin must have used
the word "brutal" about 20
times to describe the Lake
Placid, N.Y., Ironman.
Jim and Laura Griffin
joined friends Steve Gordon,
Joan Siracuse and Heidi
Crutchfield on July 22 for the
2.4-mile swim, the 112-mile
bike and the 26.2-mile run.
"It was one brutal bike
course," Jim Griffin said
Friday. "We thought we were
prepared."
The five Sebring residents
trained often in Clermont,
which is hilly by Highlands
County standards. But,
Clermont doesn't have moun-
tains.
Upstate New York does.
Crutchfield and Siracuse
were veterans of the Lake
Placid course before last
month's race. Now the
Griffins are too. Gordon did-
n't finish.
"I consider the Lake Placid
Ironman unfinished busi-
ness," Gordon said. "I went
up there prepared to hang for
17 hours."
But, race officials swept
him off the course two miles


from the transition. They had
to clear the road for a "med-
ical emergency," they told
Gordon, while packing him
and his bike onto a caravan
of support vehicles.
Miffed and disappointed,
Gordon watched as two rid-
ers about 100 meters ahead
of him were allowed to con-
tinue on.
"These are race officials,
you can't argue with them,"
he said Saturday, during a
phone conversation from
Clermont, where he was
meeting the others for light
training and an Ironman cele-
bration. "I was disappointed
but I wasn't devastated."
Gordon has done one other
Ironman elsewhere, but was
sidelined recently with sever-
al bouts of cancer, from
which he battled his way
back.
The inaugural Heartland
Triathlon last year was his
comeback race, and since
then he's been training for
Lake Placid.
Like the Griffins, Gordon
was adequately trained for an
Ironman but, not for the
mountainous course they
encountered up north.


Gordon anticipates returning
to conquer the course.
"That was my first and last
time there," Jim Griffin said,
relaying another interesting.
aspect of his brutal race.
He explained the mass
start had more than 2,200
/people in the water at one
time and there was no way to
avoid slapping hands and
kicking feet. They were sar-
dines unleashed and swim-
ming for a shore 2.4 miles
away.
"Laura and I were five sec-
onds apart coming out of the
swim," Griffin said. "It was
pretty amazing that we came
out that close and never saw
each other."
The ended up finishing the
course about 25 minutes
apart, she in front of him.
"As you know, training for
an Ironman is no walk in the
park and is very, very time
consuming as well as drains
your energy, Crutchfield said.
"Needless to say, Jim, Laura,
Joan and Steve all deserve
kudos considering what they
have sacrificed and endured
to get to the start line of
Ironman."

HISTORY LESSON

20 YEARS AGO
August 6, 1987: The Avon Park Dixie Majors All-Star team topped Louisiana, 7-0, to take the Dixie
Majors World Series title in Martinez, GA. Clyde Pough took the mound for Avon Park and blanked the
all-stars from Alexandria on just three hits for his record-tying third victory in the series tournament.
.The team lost the night before to the same team for its' first loss of the tournament. But Avon Park
won the draw for the bye among the three one-loss teams and just sat back and waited as Lousiana out-
slugged Mississippi, 10-7.
But Avon Park did little sitting back in the title game, taking advantage of Louisiana miscues for three
first-inning runs by Lee Elder, Steve Rewis and Pough.
From there, Pough mowed through the order on a variety of change-ups and curves, keeping the
Alexandria All-Stars off the scoreboard.
Four more runs were added in the fifth to pad the lead with Mike Whitney, Pough and Charles Devlin
getting the run-scoring hits.

TRACK
Continued from 1D
down.
Running gives a special
sense of accomplishment to
most all of its participants.
Beginners may be happy to
complete the races.
Experienced runners can be
stoked to see the seconds
shaved off.
Yet try to sell this to a


teenager unfamiliar with run-
ning. I guarantee you that he
or she has never played a
cross-country video game on
their X-box.
They may not realize it is
even a team sport and they
probably have no idea how it
is scored.
So salesmanship comes in.
In my media blitz, I use
celebrity photos to make
recruiting posters all over
school.


For example, I might use a
photo of the cast of Napoleon
Dynamite.
The slogan is "Why be a
cagefighter, when you can
run cross-country?"
One year, our coach had a
pool party before the first
practice.
It worked pretty well with
the guys, but not so well with
the girls.
One girl enjoyed the party
but never attended a single


practice.
So I'll keep working on
recruiting the girls.
I think I found a good tool
for the guys.
My assistant coach is a
young blonde teacher in her
late 20's. I had enough guys
for a full team last year.
Maybe I can promise
Johnny Depp t-shirts for the
ladies.
Savey, mate?

GOLF
Continued from 1D
Marty Roepstorff., Curtis
Weldy and Artie McIntyre
notched a 54, the same as
Curtis Donavan, Rick Hitt,
John Gose and Tres
Stevenson, with the first
group taking third place.
Over on the Sebring
Municipal course, the second
flight was paced by the four-
some of Mike Crenshaw, Lee
Collette, Pat Markland and
Ted Glarner with a 59, while
Tommy Lovett, Jr., Lisa
Lovett, Steve Hogan and
Scott Hitt finished second
with a 60.
Dick and Karen White,
Jerry Funk and Brad Gore
teamed up for a 61 and third
place, with Dusty Johnson,
Randy Dressel, Geoff


Johnson and Jason Shepard
taking fourth with a 62.
The third, and final, flight,
had Hal Austin joining
Buddy, Hunts and Danny
Yarbrough to card a 60 for top
honors, while Charlie White,
Ricky Percy, Sherill Brown
and Marty Wohl finished sec-
ond with a 61.
The quartet of Ronnie
Handley, Chris Mellow, Brian
Radonski and Chuck Waltman
shot a 62 for third place and
Jared Hamlin, Steve Berry,
Neil Gruber and Zach
Foster's 63 took fourth.
"The weather was perfect
and the course played well,"
McClurg said. "The Firemen
always do a great job with
these things. And the best
thing about it is, it goes for a
great cause, helping the kids
in the community."

Gary Rapp watches his
chip shot toward the green
during Saturday's Eighth
Annual Sebring Firemen
Memorial Golf Classic.
Moments later, however,
we see sons Brian flinch-
ing and Travis wincing, as
this putt just wouldn't go
down. The group was able
to save par, however,
thanks to the scramble for-
mat of the tournament.
In all, 232 players took
part in the fundraising day
on the links, playing on
both the Sebring
Municipal and Harder Hall
golf courses, with pro-
ceeds going to the Sebring
High School athletic pro-
grams, courtesy of the
Sebring Firemen.
