SEBRING To ease
children into their new
roles as students the
Kindergarten Learning
Center is hosting an open
house, ensuring both chil-
dren and parents are ready
for their first day.
Schools all over the dis-
trict are holding open
house events for students
to meet their teachers and
parents to find out infor-
mation on everything from
free and reduced lunches
to transportation.
The Kindergarten
Learning Center's open
house will be from 5-7
p.m. Tuesday and hopes
are for a big turnout. This
will be the first class to
pass through the building
and benefit from the new
to Highlands County con-
cept.
The center is still regis-
tering students 200
have already gone through
the paperwork but early
eStimiater-' ig'iie the num-
ber will be in the 350 stu-
dent range, so registration
packets will be available.
Principal Andrew
Lethbridge has put togeth-
er an informative night in
which students already
registered for the school
can meet their assigned
teachers and start to devel-
op, a rapport.
While meeting their
child's new teachers, par-
ents will be able to ask
questions and obtain sup-
ply lists.
A room is earmarked for
meetings at 5:30, 6 and
6:30 p.m. to discuss drop-
off and pick-up proce-
dures, covering how cars
will enter the school and
where they need to go.

Kenilworth Lodge sign quickly



becoming a local favorite


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING The Kenilworth Lodge
hotel has been around for 91 years. The
sign in front has been around for more
than 20. But over the past few months.
the sign, and by extension the hotel, has
drawn lots of new attention.
It, only took a few jokes to make it
happen.
The Kenilworth sign was used mostly
to' welcome groups of golfers or to
make announcements, but that all
changed once General Manager Don
Elwell took over creative duties in
February. Now, the sign has become
known for providing laughs to drivers
traveling in and out of downtown n
Sebring on Lakeview Drive, and it's
become something of an unlikely local
staple. This newfound attention came as
quite a surprise to Elwell.
"We're getting a lot of comments
every day," Elwell said. "I didn't think
it would be as popular as it has been."
The decision to shift the focus of the
sign to something more humor-oriented
was a conscious marketing decision.
designed to increase attention for the
hotel. That decision appears to have
worked.
"We were under the impression that a
lot of people didn't read them," Elxell
said. "We saw it as an opportunity to do
something more novel for marketing.
something that people wouldd actually
read."
Attention-grabbing signs are nothing
new in Highlands County. The Wild
Turkey Tavern in Avon Park garnered
lots of attention for its controversial
signs regarding illegal immigration and
other hot-button issues.
The Kenilworth sign, on the other
hand, isn't meant to be nearly as contro-
versial. Although the sign has featured
references to current events, the state-
ments have all been tongue-in-cheek,
which is by design.
"We try to keep it light," Elwell said.
"It's still marketing. It's just kind of a
new philosophy of marketing."
Elwell makes up the list of seven
days worth of jokes on Fridays. The
signs still include welcomes to golf
groups, but "now we're trying more
humorous signs" for those groups,
Elwell said. The group signs generally
face north towards downtown, while the
funnier statements are put on the south
side because more people look at that

up every day sit above him.


side.
Elwell tries to keep the topics varied,
and he's trying to include current
events. As an example of this, the sign
recently made a joking reference to the'
city of Sebring taking ownership in
Harder Hall. In response to the city's $3
million credit bid for the hotel, the sign
read: "Attn: City of Sebring! We'll sell
you this one for only $2.9 million."
Other frequent topics include strange

Sebring man

announces

Avon Park

mayoral bid

* Sharon Schuler announces
plan to run for re-election, 7A
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
AVON PARK An
impromptu gathering about
Avon Park's two new ordi-
nances was more a show of
solidarity than a meeting.
Bettina Rodriguez
Aguilera, state director,
League of Latin American
Citizens, came to Avon Park
to solicit members and to let
area Hispanics know they
have an advocate.
"LULAC is here to assist
Hispanics in whatever they
need," Aguilera said, noting
her organization was part of
last year's effort to defeat
then-Mayor Tom Macklin's
Illegal Immigration Relief
Act.
Macklin, current Mayor
Sharon Schuler and council-
man George Hall attended
Saturday's meeting of less
than two'dozen.
Neither Aguilera nor her
associates Victor Valdes,
LULAC commissioner for
civil rights and Arturo Otero,
LULAC commissioner for .
housing had read the ordi- *
nances that were adopted in
June.
The league's attorneys are
reviewing it for
Constitutionality, she said.
"The ordinance as it stands
... has nothing there as to any
one group," Aguilera said.
But, it piqued her interest
because of last year's failed
ordinance that detractors
claimed targeted Hispanics.
The same is being said of the
two new ordinances, which
require those who own rental
properties to register them as
businesses, which would sub-
ject certain homes to annual
code enforcement inspec-
tions.
"I'm glad you're looking
into it," Schuler told
Aguilera, explaining the ordi-

Neighbors save women from burning house

that consumed their East Charles Street home late
Thursday.


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Quick
work by a group of neighbor-
hood men late Thursday
night saved a pair of elderly
women from a fire at their
East Charles Street home.
For Marvin Kirlew, it
began as an evening watch-
ing movies with his room-
mates and some friends.
When one of the women
came back from the store
with snacks, she had some
startling news for the group.
"She said to us, 'Your
neighbor's house is on fire,'"
he said. "I thought it was a
joke at first but then I went
out and saw it."
Kirlew, Oneal Brown and
Christopher Pinnock ran to
the neighborhood houses to


solicit help and see if they
could be of assistance.
Travis Massey and his
wife Tomi were sleeping
peacefully at their nearby
residence when there was a
pounding at the door. It was
Kirlew.
"As soon as I opened the
door, he just said 'FIRE' and
pointed across the street.
Sure enough, it was Ms.
Williams house," Massey
said. "I yelled 'Tomi call
911' and ran over there."
What Massey, Kirlew and
the group found when they
arrived was Faye Williams
and her housemate Estel
Weeks on the floor of the
front room of the single story
frame dwelling with smoke
and flames pouring through

Meeting on Comprehensive

Plan set for Tuesday in Sebring


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING The Sebring
City Council and the city's
Planning and Zoning
Commission will hold a joint
public meeting at 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday to discuss updates to
the city's Comprehensive
Plan.
The purpose of the meeting
is to solicit public input on
issues that need to be
addressed in the city's
Comprehensive Plan. City
planners are looking for two
to three specific issues that
Sebring residents think are
important, and they will
report those issues to the
state's Department of
Community Affairs.
Residents are invited to
write their concerns on a
piece of paper and place them
in a box that will be at the
meeting Tuesday. City
Planner Tracy Mullins of
Michael Joachim and


Associates will go through
the submissions and put them
on a short list, which will then
be presented to the Planning
and Zoning Commission for
review.
Once the zoning board
reviews the issues and solicits
additional public comment,
the list will then go to the city
council for approval before
being sent to DCA.
The city is required to
review and update its
Comprehensive Plan every
seven years, and this meeting
is the first step in an 18-
month process to do that. The
meeting will also be an
opportunity for citizens to
speak out on issues they think
are important in regards to the
city's growth.
"This is really one of the
ways citizens can participate
in growth management,"
Mullins said. "It's a grass-
roots effort, and we need the
community to help."

Historical Society in need of Io


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK The Avon
Park Historical Society's
inaugural community picnic
will go on Saturday as sched-
uled and have even
announced their inaugural
pioneers of the year.
"The Historical Society
will pay for the community
center. We've received a num-
ber of donations and we're
hoping to get some more on
the day of the picnic that will
cover the cost," Avon Park
Historical Society president
Larry Levey said.
Avon Park's Community
Redevelopment Agency ini-
tially had agreed to foot the
bill for the community center,
which would allow an indoor

venue for the covered dish
affair, but they rescinded the
offer at a special July 31
meeting. The action came on
the heels of the CRA's rejec-
tion of a request for $1,300 to
pay for 200 dinners at the $20
a plate annual banquet for the
National Association for the
Advancement of Colored
People.
The September NAACP,
fundraiser also will be held at
the community center.
Avon Park city attorney
Gerald Buhr cautioned
against the donation, indicat-
ing such expenditures were
not part of the CRA's statutes
and therefore were not per-
mitted under law.

Six-hour standoff with police results in arrest
j


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@ newssun.comn
SEBRING -A domestic
disturbance brought out the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office Special Response and
Crisis Negotiation teams and
kept them on scene in a stand-
off that lasted almost six
hours.
The HCSO responded to a
call at 10:30 p.m. Thursday
that evolved into a kidnap-
ping and hostage situation,
Capt. Jeff Barfield explained.
The suspect, identified as
John David Cravey, 44 of
Avon Park, allegedly forced


his way into the house on
Dolphin Drive in Sebring.
After entering the home, he
armed himself with a knife
and held the two occupants,
identified only as adult
women, against their will.
During the ensuing standoff
the two women were able to
escape without injury,
Barfield said.
In response to Cravey bar-
ricading himself into the
home, the HCSO eventually
used a chemical agent found
in pepper spray, Oleoresin
Capsicum gas, to force the
man to leave the residence,

Second suspect

arrested in April

KFC robbery

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING Another sus-
pect in the April 20 robbery
of Kentucky Fried Chicken
was arrested Wednesday and
charged with robbery with a
firearm.
Employees of the restau-
rant were beginning to close
when two men with shirts
covering their face, one later
identified as 20-year-old
Randy Bonds of Lake Wales,
allegedly forced their way
into the store and stole $870.
In an interview with HCSO
officials Bonds admitted to
driving into Sebring that day
for the sole purpose of com-
mitting a robbery because he
was behind in his bills and
needed money, reports said.
The two men and a woman,
17-year-old Avon Park resi-
dent Beth Schaad recently
arrested for her alleged
involvement in the robbery,
decided to rob the restaurant
because it was in a secluded
area, reports said.
After the robbery the two
men met Schaad at Ohrt's
Mobile Home Park and
returned to Lake Wales,
where the two men divided
the money, reports said.
The second male suspect,
although identified by both
Schaad and Bonds as a partic-
ipant in the robbery, refused
to provide a statement to offi-
cials other than he had no
knowledge of the robbery.

Shots fired in squabble over DVD's


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING A domestic
disturbance that started over
DVD's ended with a man fir-
ing numerous gunshots at his
girlfriend's car.
The incident, occurring
Tuesday afternoon, resulted
in the arrest of Michael
Rainey on various charges.
Rainey was reportedly
upset when he heard his girl-
friend lent out DVD's to a
friend.
The victim alleges Rainey
was upset to the point that he
pushed her to the ground and
threw a DVD at her, striking
her right leg.
The couple then went to the
friend's home to retrieve the
lent out DVD's, returning to
find the victim's sister at the
residence.
Rainey went into his room
Shut returned shortly, arguing
with the victim to the point
that he punched a hole in the
wall, the report said.
The victim and her sister
allegedly started to leave the
house in the sister's car as
Rainey headed back to his
bedroom, returning with a
gun.
The victim alleges Rainey
said "you made the wrong
move" outside of the house,
then started to walk back to


the house, fir-
ing four or
five shots into
the victim's
vehicle.
When the
shots were
Rainey fired, the vic-
tim and sister
abruptly left, telling HCSO
officials they were in fear of
being shot due to Rainey's
actions, the report said.
The sister reported the vic-
tim appeared to be frightened
of Rainey, shaking, crying
and having a hard time
breathing.
After taking a statement
from the two women, Officer
David Lightsey Jr. inspected
the damage to the victim's
car, noticing a hole in the
front passenger door and
windshield, writing in his
report that the damage
appeared to be caused by
numerous gunshots.
The victim was the only
one on the lease for the house
and gave consent for officers
to search it, resulting in the
discovery of numerous illegal
items.
Officers allegedly found
two bags with a green leafy
substance inside that field
tested positive for marijuana,
a digital scale, a small glass
pipe and 25 .38 caliber bul-


Rainey is a convicted felon,
so it is illegal for him to have
ammunition in his possession.
He was charged with aggra-
vated assault with a firearm,
possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon, 25 counts of
possession of ammunition by
a convicted felon, domestic
violence battery, shooting
into a vehicle, possession of
marijuana under 20 grams and
two counts of drug parapher-
nalia.
Bond was set at $170,000.
Rainey remained in the
Highlands County Jail
Thursday afternoon.

Remember

When The Word

t "Service" Meant

Something?
We remember when people took the time to
S.'serve others. Our family has been helping
families here for many years. A our town
has grown, we have grown too, with more
specialized services, such as out-of-town
arrangements, pre-arrangements, cremations
and a grief recovery program. Even though
we have grown, our dedication to service is
still the same as it was years ago. And, we
think that's really something.

Schuler announces plans to run for mayor SIGN

AVON PARK -
Qualifying does not start for
another week in Avon Park
and already one incumbent
has thrown her hat into the
ring. Mayor Sharon Schuler
made the announcement
Friday morning on AM730
WWTK during the Barry

Present but not vocal at the
gathering was Gonzalo
Gezama, of Sebring, who said
he's moving his family to
Avon Park so he can run for
mayor.
So far, only Schuler has
publicly announced her intent
to seek the office.

Lethbridge is pleased with
the school's playground, fin-

it will be a main attraction for
his incoming students that
night.
"They will be able to view
the playground," he said. "I
think a lot of kids will be
excited."
This may help ease any
nervous children, filling their
eyes with anticipation, but
they won't be able to enjoy it

it will be off-limits during the

"The fire was all up in there
and it was hot," Massey said.
Despite being barefoot and
having no shirt, Massey and
Kirlew kicked in the door and
helped the women outside -
first Williams then her room-
mate Weeks.
S Williams' golden retriever
Bandit was the last one out of
the house.
"I went back to the door
and whistled for him. He
came from around the couch
and went right out," Massey
said.
Avon Park Fire Chief Terry
Fieckert praised the neighbors
for their work, both in rescu-
ing the women and in helping
to keep the flames from
spreading.
Massey said, "I knew Ms.
Williams had a water hose,
we grabbed it and started
squirting it through the win-
dow."
Massey and neighbor Ray
Respress then worked togeth-
er to get the water on the
flames. However, they had to
battle some foliage to get the
job done.
"She has a big cactus under
the window and we had to
fight with that to spray water
in," he said.
Massey said he didn't get
any needles stuck in him but
the plant had "poked them a
couple of times."
Firefighters were able to
contain the blaze within about
10 minutes of arriving at the
scene. There were flames in
the cabinets above the stove
and firemen had to pull some
of the ceiling down to keep
the fire from spreading into
the attic.
No dollar damage estimate
has yet been released but
reportedly the fire gutted the
kitchen and there was smoke
and heat damage throughout
the house.

ence.
First elected as a council-
woman back in 1993, Schuler
became mayor just last year.
She was vice mayor of the
city when then-mayor Tom
Macklin resigned to run as
the lieutenant gubernatorial
candidate on the ticket with
Reform Party candidate Max
Linn.
Since that time Shuler has

don't need glasses to see what
they've done for many
years."
He said the city is divided
along racial lines and the
downtown district has fallen
apart. He wants to change
both.
Lezama said he'll move
within the month.
As for the ordinances that
brought him to Avon Park on
Saturday, Lezama said inter-
pretation varies depending
with whom he's talking.

Lezama retired two weeks
ago from Avon Park
Correctional Institute after a
22-year career. Previously, he
was a Miami police officer.
Now, he's a part-time cashier
at Wal-Mart.
He was born in Nicaragua
and raised in Miami.
Lezama said he had wanted
to run for office last year but
wasn't prepared to make the
move.
"If I run for mayor, it's
going to be for everybody not

added.
In six months, the
Kenilworth sign has vaulted
into an odd position of fame
in Sebring. So what's next for
the city's newest landmark?
Would the owners of the
Kenilworth be brave enough
to give Elwell an electronic
sign to play with? Well, prob-
ably not.
"That would be the worst

holidays and observances,
such as Hypnosis Day and
Psychic Week. Elwell espe-
cially likes to focus on food
holidays, particularly "non'
healthy ones" such as
Cheesecake Day.
Elwell likes the signs to be
"slightly suggestive," but not
over the line. An example of
this could be seen on July 31,
when the sign simply said:
"Last chance to make jokes
about Baked Bean Month."
"That's as suggestive as we
get," Elwell said. "We're try-
ing to keep it clean, with
nothing R-rated."
Elwell's tenure as sign-
maker was briefly interrupted
recently after a disagreement
with the hotel's owners over
two jokes they deemed objec-
tionable. After two weeks and
a number of citizen com-
plaints, Elwell was asked to
return as signwriter. And
oddly enough, the brief vaca-
tion turned out to be produc-
tive.
"The break wasn't bad,"
Elwell said. "It gave the own-
ers and myself a chance to see
how many people read it."
As it turns out, lots of peo-
ple read it, and the sign has
managed to find its own little
niche locally.
"We're probably marketing
more than we have before,"
Elwell said, adding that he
gets calls and visits almost
daily from people who enjoy
the signs. He especially loves
to hear stories about people
calling their offices to tell
them that day's joke
"We love the fact that peo-
ple are taking that much from
it," he said.
The Kenilworth sign has
become so popular that the
hotel's Web site (witi.w.ken'l-
worthlodge.com) has a special
section devoted to pictures of
some of the more popular
jokes. Elwell is planning to
add a "Hall of Fame" to the
Web site, and the public can
\ote 'on their favorite signs
now.
The task of putting up the
text every morning falls on
the hotel's maintenance staff,
specifically engineers Johnny
Bland and Bill Dixon and
Chief of Engineering Larry
LeGro. The signs are put up
"first thing in the morning,"
Dixon said, and the process of

What two words have 18 'T's


Golf course.


It sounded like a World War
II movie.
The scene where, one after
the other, the brave flyers
start their engines, rumble
into line and take off for
glory.
Each engine adds to the
sound of the last, louder and
louder, until the roar drowns
out speech and triggers an
adrenaline rush.
That is exactly the effect I
experienced in real life the
other day as I watched
Sebring's municipal golf
course. grounds crew, one
after the other, fire up their
lawn mower engines at the
start of the day and go out into
the still dark morning.
The drama of such a routine
event was my second shock
inside of minutes, proving I
under-estimated this assign-
ment from the beginning.


When I'd been offered the
opportunity to spend time
helping groom Sebring's golf
course I'd pictured a very
quiet and pleasant time. I fig-
ured it would be the
groundskeeper and me taking
turns driving the lawn mower.
Imagine my chagrin when I
arrived at the shop and
walked in out of the dark to
find a huge, well-lit space
where instead of one man
sleepily sipping coffee there
was a large group of people,
all of whom looked up at me
as I entered.
With Jim Higgins the
course's superintendent in
charge, the crew was having
its morning briefing. It was
6:05 a.m. I was only five min-
utes late, but clearly much
further behind as the crew
was ready to begin.
The early start is necessary


TOFFIN IT

because the course opens at 7
a.m. and the mowers have to
get a head start on the early
golfers. We exchanged intro-
ductions and the crew went

Anthony Mordenga mows a fairway at the city's golf course. The grass there is kept at 5/8s

complicated hydraulics cost up to $40,000.

Jim Higgins (right) has watched over the Sebring golf course for 19 years. He said the
administration of a golf course is time consuming, especially the paperwork. There are budg-
ets to set and meet, and regulators who need to be kept up-to-date, like the Environmental
Protection Agency and the Department of Agriculture. Higgins spends $93,000 a year on
pesticides and fertilizers. Ed Naugle (left) works on the approach to a green.


quickly to their machines.
"It's just like a military
operation," I yelled over to
Higgins as the noise swelled.
"It has to be," he yelled
back.
He smiled in satisfaction
when the last machine left and
the space grew quiet.
"They got out of the shop
in six minutes this morning,"
he said looking down at his
watch, explaining he keeps
track of the time.
In fact Higgins keeps track
of almost everything, from the
amount of fertilizer used (13
pounds of nitrogen per 1,000
square feet per year) to the
number of gallons of water
sprayed (80 gallons or
more a minute per each of
the 487 sprinkler heads).


Keeping track of things is a
large part of his job.
That is because as superin-
tendent he is responsible for
the municipal golf course and
the Max Long baseball fields
as well.
We walked outside and got
into his golf cart pick-up to
begin a tour.
"I'm trying to achieve per-
fection," he said, making a
sweeping gesture with his
hand that took in the entire
landscape. That takes atten-
tion to detail, timely interven-
tion and tons of prevention.
"A golf course is a living,
breathing creature," he said.
"(Forgetting the golf course is
actually alive) that's the mis-
take most people :make. It's
nature to the nth degree."


Keeping the grass healthy
despite the steady stream of
carts and cleats 80,000
people a year play the course
- and the brutal Florida sun
is a 24-7-52 situation.
Except that so early in the
morning it was hard to
remember the sun, which was
still below the horizon.
The sky was ink black and
the full moon, a perfect
sphere hanging low over the
horizon, made the grass look
dark blue. Bushes and trees
loomed as abstract shadows.
It all combined to make the
scene eerie and other worldly.
When the mowers appeared
as pools of lights and began to
undulate before me, seeming

GOLF
Continued from 9A

to glide over the Earth's sur-
face, they looked just like
miniature UFOs.
But the golf course didn't
have to be exotic to be appeal-
ing.
Once the sun rose and its
rays slanted through the trees,
the dozens of shades of green
and the blue sky arcing over
head turned the course from
mysterious to soothing, espe-
cially where stands of trees
were perfectly reflected in the
water hazards.
I felt the tension drain out
of me as I leaned back taking
it all in, bouncing at Higgins'
side as he drove over the trails
on the 140-acre course, point-
ing out favorite plants, or
recent work projects 99
percent of which are done in
house like a new paved
cart path and a support wall.
That sense of peace, how-
ever, was slightly'misplaced.
Higgins said he's been hit by
golf balls 13 times. Fore is
more than a number in golf.
We stopped often so I could
drive different types of mow-
ers. Some have rotary blades,
some rollers. All have back


'We try to create a total environment

here. We plant a lot of trees and

vegetation to attract animals, and

leave some dead trees for hawks ... '

wheel steering, which means
the machines can turn on a
dime with a whipping action.
It's a little like an amusement
park ride, especially when
you run them at full throttle.
The mowers run on diesel,
combined they drink a gallon
an hour. Their blades are
changed out and sharpened
every two days.
The actual mowing, while
repetitive, has a mesmerizing
quality that I thought lowered
my blood pressure.
Greens are mowed daily,
fairways four days a week,
the rough two times a week.
It takes 19 men and women
- seven of whom are full
time, two of them mechanics
- to keep things up and run-
ning smoothly. The mowing
takes three hours, projects are
done in the afternoon.
Crew members vary in age.
Two are in their 80s, one is


15. Almost all of them are
golfers themselves, many of
them working mainly for
golfing privileges.
"I've got a very good
crew," Higgins said. "They
care about what they do. The
secret is we water before it
needs water, cut it before it
needs to be cut, and fertilize it
before it needs to be fertilized
to keep it consistent.
"Golf courses have some-
thing of a bad name," he
added, but we're actually
environmentally correct. It's a
million dollar operation, with
so much money (at stake) I'm
not going to spread fertilizer
if I don't need to, water either.
We try to create a total envi-
ronment here. We plant a lot
of trees and vegetation to
attract animals, and leave
some dead trees for hawks
and woodpeckers." He has
seen fox, deer and bob cats on


the golf course.
Higgins is as much garden-
er as manager. His main crop
is 419 Bermuda Grass, but he
experiments with the land-
scape adding exotics and
fruits. There is papaya, for
example, and Barbados cher-
ries, guavas, yellow pome-
granates and sugar apples
among the oak trees, crepe
myrtle and pine.
He is trying out a new
ground cover to use in the
rough. He says it will be the
next big thing. It is called turf
peanut. It's a legume. That
means it returns nitrogen to
the soil, and it doesn't need
much water.
As we headed back to the
shop, the sun well up and
everyone hard at work,
Higgins said, "The last thing a
.golfer wants to hear is that the
grass didn't get mowed. But
it's more than just mowing.
It's a truly big operation. A lot
of people don't know what all
we do.
"The only way to make the
job manageable is to take care
of one thing at a time," he
said, "Is it national security?
No."
He just approaches it as if it
were. The better for us.

Women fighting women is a good thing?


So I was sitting in Dr.
Luepschen's office, leafing
through a Time magazine
while the podiatrist works on
my mother-in-law. Like a lot
of other people, I often kill
time in doctor's offices by
reading through their maga-
zines that I don't subscribe to.
I like Dr. Luepschen. For
one thing, she takes good care
of my in-laws' feet. For
another, she's a fan of this
column and always makes
some comment about it when
I come in. Fans are nice and
likable.
Anyway, she noticed I was
looking at the July 30 issue of
Time. I had paused at an arti-
cle that was called, "Ct's
Ladies' Fight."
,:.,'Did you read that?" she
asked me.
Well, I hadn't yet. It had
caught my eye but knowing
my time with the magazine
was limited so I was skipping
around to different articles.
"That's a terrible thing!"
she said, referring to the arti-
cle, not my reading habits.
"You should write about it!


You can quote
me!"
I'd scanned


Laura's
Look


enough of the Laura
article to know
why it had ticked her off. And
if a fan requests a column,
who am I to argue?
The article in Time (bet you
were wondering when I would
get to that) concerns a new
"sport" called mixed martial
arts. It's a combination of
fighting skills such as boxing,
wrestling, and martial arts.
Apparently the brutal fights
are popular with males
between 18 and 34 years old.
Now it seems women are
wanting to get into the act.
This is also popular with
males between 18 and 34
years old apparently women
fighting women is something
that guys think is sexy.
I live with a guy and gave
birth to two more. They have
never indicated to me that
watching women punch the
daylights out of women was
something they enjoyed. But I
do know guys who seem to
think it's great. I can't under-


stand it, but then
again, I'm not
male.


Ware The article
doesn't hold
back the fact the fights are
brutal. Women get bones bro-
ken in the fights. They also
get beaten up. And they do
this of their own free will.
One woman in the article
said something I can't even
begin to get my mind around.'
"I like to punch, but I like to
get punched too. I want to
take it."
I have a list of things I like.
It includes things such as
chocolate, compliments, and
an occasional kind word from
my children. It never has
included getting punched. In
fact, I could live a long and
happy life without ever get-
ting punched in the face.
I need to add it has never
included punching anyone. I
save my attacking others for
games such as Civilization 4,
where at least I'm trying to
take over the world while
waging wars.
So what kind of person


likes getting hit? And likes to
hit? I guess they exist box-
ing has been around for ages.
But women? It doesn't scan.
Dr. Luepschen commented
to me 'that women are tradi-
tionally nurturers. Maybe
that's why I find the whole
concept of women trying to
beat each other's faces in so
disturbing. These women
aren't beating off an attacker
or some creep molesting a
child. They're hitting each
other because someone is
paying them to do it and they
like it.
I realize that my views on
this "sport" will have femi-
nists chomping at the bit.
"Are you saying women don't
have the,,same killer instinct
as men?-' they'll snarl.."We
can be just as brutal as any
man!"
Well, maybe we can, but
this is a good thing?

Trying to get on feet
just became harder
Editor:
An open letter to the city of
Sebring Code Enforcement
office:
I have lived in Sebring,
Florida for most of my 26
years on this earth. I have met
a lot of people during the
duration of my life. I am a
respectful person and a good
citizen. I keep my yard clean
and sweep my porch every
other day at least.
I moved away to Georgia
last year to work as assistant
general manager of a $3 mil-
lion a year hotel in Macon.
During that time by insurance
lapsed as the bills were sent to
Florida still. I returned here to
Highlands County and found
out during a routine traffic
stop that my license was sus-
pended.
I've tried to get my license
back and it will cost me close
to a grand. I'm not sure how
fat your bank account is, but
I'm not sitting on a nest egg at
26.
So, I have been steadily
working towards getting my
license back. Meanwhile I'm
still paying on my '98 Isuzu
Amigo that I can no longer
drive. The tag's expired since
I don't have insurance
because I don't have my
license.
Then I wake up one morn-
ing to discover a bright green
sticker on the window of my
car. It informs me that I need
to have my vehicle properly
tagged or it would be towed.
Well, today was that day.
I don't have money for a
storage facility for my car,
and I don't have a way to get
my tag renewed. So, what I
have come to the conclusion


of, is if you have a car in the
city of Sebring and no insur-
ance, sell it before the city
steals it from you.
My vehicle was kept clean
and positioned properly in my
own driveway. I haven't driv-
en it or anything, what more
could I have done? I should
have my license and insur-
ance back before September,
but was I given a chance? No.
Now I have to try and come
up with money I don't have to
get my vehicle back and hide
it somewhere so it wont be
stolen from me again.
Dear city of Sebring, I'm
sorry I'm poor and I'm sorry I
have bad luck. Please don't
take anything else from me,
there's not much left.

Should churches
assess for services?
Editor:
The churches in our town
have many expenses for mis-
sion projects that we would
like to support, however, our
income from the offering
plate has not been sufficient
to meet all the expenses of
what we would like to do. We
know we serve many citizens
who do not pay their fair
share, so the churches of Avon
Park came together and voted
to assess the city of Avon Park
for the services we provide.
It does not matter if the cit-
izens go to church or not, as
the churches must be prepared
to minister when the need
arises. The church leaders
would decide how much each
person will pay, and how the
assessment will be divided.
This would allow the people
who give through the offering
plate to give less.


There is presently no proce-
dure for a citizen initiative to
require the church leaders to
reconsider the budget or any
item relating to appropriation
of the Church Service
Assessment. The proper
avenue to change the assess-
ment is to attend a church
business meeting and apply
for permission to speak prior
to the meeting, in hopes of
changing the mind of the
church leaders. Be aware,
there is a lot of business to
attend to, so don't expect to
get permission, or any length
of time to speak, if permission
is granted.
Of course ypu would not
have the right to vote on the
decision as a private citizen, it
is totally up to the church
leaders ... Sound preposter-
ous? Not really. Just look at
what the city council of Avon
Park wants to do to the
churches, non-profit organi-
zations, and nursing homes in
our town.
Churches and non-profit
organizations do not have
money to pay additional
expenses. Their money is put
to work doing the work the
money was meant to do.
Would our town accept old
clothing as payment? That is
what some non-profit organi-
zations deal in.
To impose assessment on
such organizations would
decrease the services to Avon
Park's people in need. I would
expect some organizations
will have to end their service
and close.
To impose the additional
expense on nursing homes
would put an additional bur-
den on the elderly and dis-
abled. Is that really what we
want our city council to do?
For the citizens not to be


able to vote on the assessment
makes me think that there is
something improper in this
procedure.
We ask the city council not
to impose the fire and EMT
assessment on these organiza-
tions, and don't bring it up
again in the future.

Give the asphalt
facility consideration
Editor:
I was going to wait until we
had the bids in before
responding to the naysayers
of the asphalt facility the
county is considering.
What will the crews do?
Good question. Since it is at
the landfill some might work
there in slow periods.
More may work in Road
and Bridge, who knows.
However in looking at the
reports I can tell you that this
is not something that Mr.
Wheeler has not taken into
consideration and I feel they
will be used well and wisely.
Doesn't the companies here in
the county have the same
problem except with fewer
ways to solve it?
On a side note folks, the
present request for employees
to run the plant is three. One
of those is a clerical position
which will probably be used
elsewhere is ever needed.
I also believe that we have
many county employees who
are more than able to learn to
run the plant. It really isn't
rocket science and please tell
me what makes some people
think that they are the only
ones that have the skills to do
the job? Has either of these
company's ever hired people

LETTERS
Continued from 12A
from Highlands County or
are we all too dumb and
they had to go somewhere
else to find "good" help?
There are many poten-
tial cost savings involved
with having our own plant.
We have at the landfill
numerous items that can
be used in the production.
Before you say it will not
produce a good product,
do some research. You will
be surprised to find that
Mr. Wheeler has done his
homework so before you
start to kick him maybe
you naysayers should do
yours.
For instance, many of
our residents want the
county to recycle glass.
We don't do this presently
because there isn't a good
market for glass. However
S glasphalt is now a tried
and proven product that
would enable us to give
the resident a chance to
recycle the glass as they
wish. Thus the county
would save money on one
of the few ingredients that
are needed. We also have
plenty of concreteto crush
and use and methane for
fuel, and because we are


using methane we can also
be qualified for available
state and federal grants.
The "Landfill Methane
Outreach Program" is a
prime example of just such
a program.
The asphalt people, it
has been said, have stated
that we are not using the
correct mix formula.
Actually it would appear
that we would be using a
better product than now in
at least to cases and those
roads are doing just fine so
ours should do even better.
I have heard that we
must be afraid of lawsuits.
Why? The county has been
sued before and lawsuits
can happen to anyone. Ask
the sheriff how many they
have to content with.
Should we shut down the
Sheriff's Office because of
fear some crook or money
grabbing lawyer says they
will take us to court?
I have heard the com-
plaint that methane is not a
good fuel. Yet I just
recently read that NASA
thinks this (methane) is the
new fuel for our space
rockets to be able to reach
the outer limits of our
solar system and beyond.
Just several months ago
they tested the first rocket
engine using methane. I
believe they (NASA) are a


pretty good source of
information about the ben-
efits of methane.
The biggest reason this
project makes sense is that
the county can save money
because they don't have to
make a profit.
Now think about that for
a minute folks. Let that
sink in and then ask your-
selves why these compa-
nies would be in business
if they couldn't make a
profit and believe me, I
have seen some of those
numbers and they are
doing pretty good selling
to this county.
These extra savings
could be used not to go
into the general revenue
but rather back into road
projects. The number one
item that many commis-
sioners face is residents
that want their roads.
paved. We could do many
more miles of new roads
every year with these cost
saving. We could also use
the money to maintain our
current road system.
There is also something
to be said about the
amount of asphalt that the
Sebring Parkway will
require this alone could
save enough to make a
large 'dent in the overall
costs of the project. Will
this be the only project of


this size and scope in the
years to come?
I believe that this plant
will run for many years
because of our needs. I'm
not very worried about
down time or who will run
the plant. But please don't
take my word for it. Do
some homework your-
selves folks and then give
the county and Mr.
Wheeler the pat on the
back they deserve for
thinking outside the box
rather than the kick in the
pants that some naysayers
would have you do.
Remember it is your
money and it can be spent
wisely or we can give it
away to companies that are
driven by the bottom line
rather than the desire to
make this county a better
place to live.
I usually find that many
of the naysayers of these
projects have a vested
interest. I believe that
we'll hear more and more
reason given to attempt to
scare the residents. I
believe that if you want to
tell scare stories then put
the facts in also. Fear
alone is not a reason to not
attempt to make this a bet-
ter place to live.
I suspect that those in
the industry are sharpening
their pencils and getting
ready to give the county
some really good and low
revised bid quotes and all
this just because there is a
threat of building a facili-
ty.
One last thing folks. We
have been a leader in
things like landfill design
and we are a great recycler
in the eyes of many around
the state. We are looked up
to by other counties in var-
ious areas. When we make
this work, and we will, we
will be the first one in the
state to do it and then just
as the industry fears. We
will only just be one of the
ones doing it. Someone
always has to be first, so
why not.us?.. ... ..

The silent witnesses hurt, too


A child recently said to me, "I
know what the Bible said about lov-
ing my neighbor as myself, but I
can't love my neighbor (pause)
because he beats his wife every day.
Every day you can her crying and
him shouting at her."
A teen told me that she chose a
gay lifestyle after years of watching
her father beating her mom. "I
vowed that I would never allow any
man to touch me. I don't want them
pretending to love me ... and then
beat me."
She said there were times when
she couldn't hug her mother
because her mom was in intense
pain from her father's beatings.
"My mom protected my dad, she
lied for him ... he never appreciated
her," another teen said. She said
when anyone asked her mom about
the bruises on her arm, neck or face,
she would blame it on the cat, the
azalea or the rose bush.
"The black eye, she blamed on
waking up in the middle of the night
and walking into the door. How can
you love someone who repeatedly
hurts you?" she asked.
S"The sickening part about this
whole thing is that after the beat-
ings, these dads then tell the moms
they love them, but blame them for
what happen. That's the weird part,"
said a silent witness.
Children are silent witnesses to
the onslaught of physical, emotion-
al, mental and financial, abuse
which is affecting their daily lives.
Here are some facts. According to
the Department of Justice, a women
is more likely to be assaulted,
injured, raped or killed by a male


partner than any other type of
assailant.
Every nine seconds a woman is
assaulted and beaten in America.
Yearly, 4,000.000 women experi-
ence partner abuse in this country.
Fifty percent of women and chil-
dren who are homeless flee their
homes as a result of domestic vio-
lence.

Pause and
Consider
Jan-Merop
Gradual, yet
unmistakable, growth
The first time our son
held his newborn son,
Jonathon, two and a half
years ago, he commented,
"This is a miracle."
How tenderly they
cared for him their little
baby. Even as he grew
past infancy, he was still
their baby.
As months moved into
years, he shed some of
that baby look and
seemed to suddenly, move'
into being a toddler. As
his unsure steps became
more secure, he exhibited
his desire for more inde-
pendence.
He'd let himself be held
and cuddled for a time,
but it wasn't long before
he would wriggle out.of
their arms to get down
and explore as fast as
his little legs could carry
him.
Then, one day my
daughter-in-law told me
that Jonathon had graduat-
Sed from his crib to a tod-
dler bed. She was proud
of how well he was doing,
but couldn't help feeling a
little melancholy.
Leaving his crib was
one more step in his
-maturity 'and though she
was delighted with watch-
ing the changes she also
felt the 'loss' of that
babyhood time.
We can all relate to
how it feels when it seems
our children have grown
suddenly when in reality
it's been gradual..What's
hard to fathom is how it
happens right before our
eyes or even while
we're sleeping.
God has chosen to grow
us up the same way.
Receiving salvation is
instantaneous. But, not so
with spiritual maturity.
That is not God's way.
Perhaps when Jesus
told Nicodemus in John 3:
3, NIV, "I tell you the
truth, no one can see the
kingdom of God unless he
is born again;" he painted
a word picture that not
only described spiritual
transformation, but the
process of spiritual
growth.
Just as parents are
deliberate in the training
of their children toward
maturity, so is God with
our spiritual maturity.
We often have to learn
some lessons more than
once. That takes time and
patience. As children's
confidence increases, they
must have boundaries and
learn how to channel their
energies.
So, too, in the spiritual
realm. Whether in physi-
cal or spiritual growth, we
must come to terms with .
what we're learning;
develop new habits; and,
learn to seek wise coun-,
sel. Then all of a sudden -
or so it seems the fruit
of the Spirit is manifested
in our actions without
having to think about it.
When we are reborn
into God's family, he
stays with us through the
thick and thin of the
maturing process like the
faithful parent he is.
Gradually, we are reborn
into miracles of God's
grace. Selah

It's time to think about vegetable gardening


Even though it's
very hot and
humid here in
south central
Florida it may be
time to think about
putting in that
vegetable garden.
Some items such
as collards and
bunching onions
may actually be
started in August,
but the main plant-
ing season is


GROVE
SEAS(

Master G


September and October.
Pick a spot for your garden
fairly near the house if possi-
ble so it is close to a source of
water and accessible. Make a
plan laying out what you want
to plant and where. Keep in
mind that if you can't find
seed or plants at local suppli-
ers you may have to order


them from a cata-
.'.: log.
You may wish
I 4. to improve our
sandy soils by
S adding black dirt
or a soil mix to
S your garden plot.
Work up the plot
VING at least three
ON weeks prior to
planting time so it
yen has time to settle
some to provide a
gardener firm seedbed.
Adding compost or animal
manure is a great way to
amend your soil, but this
needs to be done a month or
two before you plant.
Composts are usually low in
nitrogen so fertilizer will need
to be added to avoid plant
stunting.
It's a good idea to check the


pH (acidity) of your plot prior
to planting; otherwise fertiliz-
er may not be available to the
plants. The best pH range for.
a garden is between 5.8 and
6.3. Take a soil sample into
the local Master Gardener
office at the Extension Center
and they will test it for you
for a nominal fee.
Commercial fertilizer is
usually needed for Florida
gardens unless you use large
quantities of organic fertiliz-
er. Our local sandy soils have
phosphorous available so uti-
lize a low'phosphorous fertil-
izer. One to two Ibs. of a 15-
0-15 per 100 square feet is
generally recommended.
Once planting is done and
the vegetables have sprouted
you may wish to mulch; pine
needles or straw may work the
best to conserve moisture and

Hydrila: A menace to our waterways


Have you ever been out on
the lake and realized that your
good fishing spot has been
consumed by vegetation?
Now that favorite spot is diffi-
cult to get to because of the
huge mass of plants that have
taken over. In, addition, the
fish are no longer living there
because the oxygen is being
used up by the plants. The
culprit may very well be
hydrilla, an invisible menace
until it fills the lake and "tops
out" at the surface.
Hydrilla, which is native to
Africa, Australia and parts of
Asia, is considered to be the
most problematic aquatic
plant in the nation. It was
introduced to Florida in the
1960's as an aquarium plant.
Soon after its introduction to
the sunshine state, 'it spread
very rapidly. By the early
1970s it was established in
major water bodies of all
drainage basins in the state.
Today, according to the
University of Florida, hydrilla


is found in all Gulf Coast
states, Atlantic Coast states as
far north as Maryland and
Delaware, and in the western
states, California, Washington
and Arizona.
One of the reasons hydrilla
is such a problematic species
is its ability to reproduce so
rapidly and easily. Although a
major pest, hydrilla is a very
efficient plant. It can repro-
duce in four ways: fragmenta-
tion, tubers, turions and seed.
It can sprout new plants
from root or stem fragments.
Under ground, hydrilla pro-
duces tubers, potato like
objects, which each start a
new plant. These tubers may
remain dormant for years
before they begin to grow new
plants.
Buds from the plant, called
turions, will separate from the
adult plant and start new
plants wherever they settle.
And finally, the seeds of this
pesky plant can spread, pro-
ducing additional plants


wherever they land.
The plant's amaz-
ing reproductive
capabilities allow it .
to grow in most
freshwater bodies.
It has a wide toler-
ance for water tem-
perature (68-86 F).
The plant is con- Ne
posed of approxi- From
mately 90 percent Wate
water, which means
it can produce new Corine
growth easily in
water with limited or high
volumes of nutrients.
In addition, it can elongate
rapidly, up to one inch per
day, to reach the sunlight at
the water's surface. Once it
reaches the water's surface, it
branches out and produces
more stems.
This reduces the amount of
required sunlight reaching
other submersed plants.
Hydrilla does not need as
much light to photosynthesize
as other vegetation. This aids


DWS
SThe
rshed

Burgess


the plant by allowing
it to begin the photo-
synthesis process
earlier in the morn-
ing and also to grow
in deeper water than
other aquatic vegeta-
tion.
Hydrilla is causing
major problems all
over the United
States. The plant
impacts water bodies
in many ways. It
reduces flow in


drainage canals, which can
result in flooding. It slows
flow and clogs pumps for
landowners utilizing irriga-
tion canals. It can cause
buildup in culverts, which
may affect pumping stations.
It impedes navigation for
recreational and commercial
activities. It affects activities
such as swimming and fish-
ing. It displaces native vege-.
tation and causes fish kills.
And Florida spends mil-
lions of dollars a year on


treatment of this exotic plant
in an effort to control it.
What steps can you take to
help stop the spread of
hydrilla and other non-native
pests? The U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service and U.S.
Coast Guard offer the follow-
ing suggestions:
Before leaving any body
of water, it is important to
examine all your equipment,
boats, trailers, clothing,
boots, buckets etc and:
Remove any visible plants,
mud and dirt. Make sure to
remove them at the site and
not at your home.
Much of the recreational
equipment used in water con-
tains many spots where water
can collect and potentially
harbor these aquatic hitchhik-
ers. Thus, make sure that you:
Eliminate all water from
every conceivable item'before
,you leave the area you are vis-
iting. Remove water from
motors, jet drives, live wells,
boat hulls, scuba tanks and


regulators, boots, waders, bait
buckets, seaplane floats, and
swimming floats.
0 Aquarium and Aquatic
Pets: If your family gets tired
of its aquarium or aquatic
pets, do not release anything
from the aquarium (water,
plants, fish or animals) into or
near a body of water or storm
drain. Explain tp your chil-
dren how you could be hurt-
ing all of the streams and
lakes around the country and
killing other fish and animals
that already live in the water.
Highlands County has its
share of challenges with
hydrilla. We all want to enjoy
our beautiful lakes and water-
ways; and by following these
simple steps, you can help
with the control of this inva-
sive plant. For more informa-
tion on how you can get
involved in protecting our
lakes and watersheds, contact
the Highlands Soil and Water
Conservation District office at
402-6545.

Lake Wales Youth


Chorale has auditions


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE WALES The
Lake Wales Youth Chorale
will be holding auditions
for children who are 8-14
years old and enjoy
singing.
The auditions will take
place from 3-5 p.m. today
at the Lake Wales Arts
Center. Students may come
at any time between 3 and
5 p.m. or call the Arts
Center, (863) 676-8426,
and leave a message for
director Cathy Montero to
arrange a different audition
time.
;This traditional chil-
dren's choir was made 'up
of 60-plus singers from 16
different schools and
homeschoolers. They per-


formed with the Lake
Wales Adult Chorale on
two occasions, participated
in a choir festival in
Tampa, where they
received very high marks,
and held two of their own
concerts to a packed audi-
torium.-
Children do not need to
read music to be selected
for the group. They do not
need to prepare a song to
sing for the audition.
Students in the Youth
Chorale will learn vocal
techniques, music theory,
sight singing, and a wide
range of repertoire
throughout the .year.
Call The Arts Center for
more information. (863)

New Chrysler Premiere Event


Avon Park On Friday,
August 3rd, the sale transac-
tion of DaimlerChrysler to
Cerberus became official.
Even though Daimler

Lifetime

Powertrain

Warranty

Avon Park- The New

raised the standard within the
automotive industry by intro-
ducing a first, a Lifetime
Powertrain Warranty.

The Lifetime Powertrain
Warranty that Chrysler is
including with nearly every
new gasoline powered vehi-

by any auto manufacturer,
ever! There are no. strings
attached. At no extra cost to
the buyer, Chrysler is war-
ranting the engine, transmis-
sion and drivetrain on every
new Chrysler, Dodge and
Dodge Truck excluding SRT
high performance vehicles,
diesel powered vehicles, and
those used- as/for/by police,
taxis, limousines, postal
delivery, ambulances, rental
or government.
















I I

























The warranty is limited to
the original owner and is not
transferable. There is no
mileage limit on the warran-
ty. This industry first demon-
strates the confidence that
Chrysler has in their product.
For the longtime owner and
for those individuals that put
numerous miles on a vehicle,
this warranty can possibly
save a person thousands of
dollars as well as give them a
real peace of mind.

Every new 2007 and 2008
gasoline powered Dodge or
Chrysler on sale at Wells
Dodge Chrysler on US high-
way 27 between Avon Park
and Sebring has this exclu-
sive Lifetime Powertrain

Closing costs:

What's negotiable

and what's not?

Today's real estate mar-
ket affords buyers some
unique cost-cutting oppor-
tunities, especially when
it comes to closing costs.
In many cases, sellers are
offering to pay for some
or all of the closing costs
related to the purchase of
a new home.
Typical closing costs
average around 5 percent
of your loan amount, so
the total costs can run
into the thousands of dol-
lars for a median-priced
home in Florida not
small change.
But which ones are
negotiable? Which ones
are set in stone? And
which ones can you feel
confident turning over to
the seller?
The law helps con-
sumers understand more
about closing costs:
lenders are required to
itemize all the services
performed, from the cred-
it report to title insurance.
Prospective homeowners
must be provided with
this good faith estimate
(GFE) within three days
of submitting a mortgage
loan application; the law
also requires that this

CLOSING
Continued from 1

document be as accurate an
estimate as possible.
Buyers will encounter
three categories of costs at
the closing table: Lender
fees, third-party fees and
government fees. Knowing
which of these fees are nego-
tiable or can be waived alto-
gether will help save con-
sumers hundreds of dollars at
closing:
Government fees (non-
negotiable): Out-of-pocket
charges paid to the govern-
ment for such things are deed
recording and mortgage
taxes. Have the seller pay
these.
Third-party fees (semi-
negotiable): These include
charges the lender has to pay
to third parties for services,
such as appraisals, credit
reports, title searches, insur-
ance, flood certification, ter-
mite inspections and more.
These fees are generally set
in stone since lenders can't
control fees set by these serv-
ice providers. But be sure
you are paying fair market
prices for these services and
ask about the fees if you feel
you are being overcharged.
Have the seller negotiate
these.
Lender fees (nego-
tiable): Charged by the
lender to cover various costs
of closing, many of these
fees are negotiable or may be
completely waived by


FAULK
Continued from 1

multi-million dpllar producer
and received the designation
of a Certified Residential


request. These include
charges for application fees,
document preparation, loan
origination and loan process-
ing fees, as well as points, if
applicable. Because these
fees don't include out-of-
pocket costs to third parties,
they can be eliminated or
reduced, depending on the
lender's motivation to get
your business. Sellers will
often offer to pay these fees
to sell the home.
If your seller refuses to
pick up any of the fees, con-
sider the following sugges-
tions to help reduce your
overall closing costs:
Shop around. Go on the
offensive and carefully
review fees put in front of
you; pit lenders against each
other if necessary. If a bank
or mortgage brokerage really
wants the business, it will
start cutting those fees quick-
ly. Compare lenders' fees and
charges from a variety of
lenders. Once you have edu-
cated yourself on the various
costs of negotiable and non-
negotiable fees, you will be
better prepared to cut a better
deal on the closing costs-
instead of simply accepting
the costs that your lender
proposes.
Check your credit.
You'll feel more confident in
asking for fee reductions or
waivers when your credit is
strong. A customer with per-
fect credit who has been with
the same company for several
years and has little debt will
have better luck in cuLting
closing costs than those with

less-than-perfect Fair, Isaac
and Company (FICO) scores
and a history of job hopping.
Double check your esti-
mate. Be sure to bring your
good faith estimate sheet
with you to closing; compare
the final closing costs with
the Good Faith Estimate to
check for unfamiliar or
excessive charges. If you
have any questions about the
charges on your GFE or final
closing costs, discuss them
with your real estate attorney.
Ask about bundling. A
handful of lenders are start-
ing to offer a real estate set-
tlement package that charges
a flat fee for all the closing
costs, including title insur-
ance. Ask your lender about
this type of arrangement,
which are offered by several
online lending institutions,
including e-trade and e-loan.

Seacoast National Bank launches


Blanket Mortgage program


rower's current property, where the equity
resides.
The bank and borrower agree up front to the
amount to be paid down on the loan when the
first property is sold. That amount is then writ-
ten into the loan so that the first property is
automatically released from the mortgage
upon receipt of those funds. However, there is
no balloon, short term adjustment or addition-
al requirement placing pressure on the borrow-
er to sell the property at a distressed price.
The Blanket Mortgage Loan is available at
all Seacoast National Bank locations. More
information is available by contacting one of
our mortgage banking officers at (800) 706-
9991.


Seacoast National Bank is pleased to
announce the offering of a new Residential
Blanket Mortgage Loan product. A Blanket
Mortgage allows qualified homeowners to uti-
lize the equity in an existing home as a down
payment to finance a new home. In the midst
of a challenging real estate market, a Blanket
Mortgage can be a simple and conservative
way for a homeowner to eliminate the worry
of a short-term bridge loan.
According to Chic Acosta, executive vice
president for Seacoast National Bank's
Mortgage Banking division, blanket mort-
gages are best for people who wish to pur-
chase a new home before the sale of their cur-
rent residence. One mortgage is used to place
a lien on both the new property and the bor-

Short-term interest


rates on the rise

Adjustable Rate Mortgage holders

prepare for increase in interest rates


By BRIAN MANNING
Residential Mortgage Specialist
Manning Mortgage Group
FORT LAUDERDALE -
In 2004, the Federal Reserve
made it clear that short-term
interest rates would be
increased at a "measured
pace" because of a fluctuating
U.S. dollar, unstable oil
prices and an evaluation of
other economic indicators. In
an effort to curb inflation, the
Federal Reserve has kept its
word and continued to raise
rates, including one incredi-
ble streak of 17 consecutive
hike announcements follow-
ing meetings of the Federal
Open Market Committee.
As a result of these interest
rate increases, millions of
homeowners with adjustable
rate mortgages will feel the
sting of corresponding
increases in their annual
adjustments. Consumers with
revolving debt accounts tied
to the prime rate have already
felt the impact, as the prime
rate always rides 3 percent
above the current Fed Funds
Rate.
And although an increase
in the Fed Funds Rate does
have a direct impact on finan-
cial markets as a whole, mort-
gage rates are affected rather
indirectly, and may go up or
down based on the prevailing
perception investors have of
current economic statistics
and their reaction to. the.
Federal Reserve's after-meet-
ing statements.
In general, when economic
data indicates we have a
slow-down occurring in our
economy, investors tend to
sell off stocks and reallocate


that money to the safe haven
of bonds and mortgage-
backed securities. The pur-
chase of mortgage-backed
securities drives interest rates
down. When economic data
indicates growth in the econo-
my, the stock market typically
rallies and mortgage-backed
securities sell off to fuel that
stock market rally. This
drives mortgage interest rates
up.
Our current market reflects
the reaction of investors hav-
ing read between the lines on
comments made by the Fed.
This will continue to have an
affect on homeowners with
adjustable rate mortgages
(ARMs) tied to indexes that
are based-on short-term inter-
est rates. This includes the
llth District Cost of Funds,
12-Month Treasury Average
(MTA), London Inter Bank
Offering Rates (LIBOR) and
others.
This doesn't mean that
everyone with an adjustable
mortgage is in immediate
danger. Some indexes are
more volatile than others.
COFI moves much slower
than other adjustable rate
indexes, while the LIBOR
fluctuates with more volatili-
ty. But remember, when an
ARM adjusts, the new interest
rate is a sum of the borrow-
er's fixed margin plus the Qur-
rent rate of the index the
mortgage is tied to. In addi-
tion, slower moving indexes,
like COFI and MTA, are still
likely to reach the levels of
their volatile counterparts in a
market where interest rates
are rapidly climbing. It may
just take them longer to do so.

There's no slowing down Lillian Webb


These ain't no li'l piggies


By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING---Lillian Webb
radiates energy and health.
Why shouldn't she?
The 92-year-old Sebring
resident competed in the
Senior Olympics in
Louisville, Kentucky, this
past summer and brought
home six gold medals.
The retired school teacher
won her age group in the
100 meters, 200 meters,
long jump, shot put, discus
and bowling.
"You have to qualify for
your county and then your
state," Webb said as she
showed this reporter the
medals in her Woodhaven
Estates home.
Webb has been competing
in the Senior Olympics
since the 1980s when she
lived in Maine.
She has traveled to Baton
Rouge, San Antonio, and
Tuscon to participate in the
meets.
She drove to Louisville at
the end of June for this
summer's event.
Lillian ran the 100 meters
in:31.30.
The second place finisher
was clocked in :36.05. She
ran 200 meters in 1:17.85.
Her long jump mark was


1.52 meters.
She tossed the shot put
4.13 meters and the discus
9.07 meters.
Lillian said that she has
been a bowler for many
years and continues to bowl
every week. In Louisville
she threw a 134, 146 and
168 for a 448 in her first
series. She had a 124, 167,
and 139 for a 430.
This week Lillian
received a congratulatory
letter from Governor
Charlie Crist.
She was also honored by
former Governor Jeb Bush
in 2004 as the Florida
Sports Foundation amateur
athlete of the year.
Lillian was born in
Philadelphia and raised in
Summit, New Jersey.
As a teenager, she
enjoyed playing basketball
and field hockey.
She played baseball with
the boys and she.also partic-
ipated in track and field.
"I was brought up in the
time of the depression" she
said. "We had sports in high
school and then we went to
work. After high school, I
never participated in sports.
I did start bowling five
Years before I retired."
Teaching filled Lillian's


courtesy pnoto
Lillian Webb and her six
gold medals from the Senior
Games.

time.
She had graduated with a
bachelor's degree in history
and art and later earned a
Master of Fine Arts degree.
For many years she
taught at Cathedral High
School, a Catholic school
Sfor girls, in New York City.
Lillian still keeps busy.
She enjoys wood carving
and playing the organ. She
directs a choir in her senior


community that visits area-
nursing homes. She also
serves as a mediator/arbitra-
tor for the court system.
"I am an inquisitive per-
son," Lillian said. "I wonder
'How do they do that?' If
you can keep your mind
active, you can keep that
gray matter going.'
She also demonstrated her
fast-paced and very upright
walk.
"If I go somewhere, I
walk briskly, I don't droop."
She said her father passed
at an early age but her mom
lived to be 101.
Lillian thinks other keys
to her longevity are her
sense of humor and her love
of people.
When asked to offer
advice to other potential
senior athletes, Lillian did
not hesitate a second.
"Go for it!" she said.
S"You don't have to be phys-
ically capable of running.
They are other things. There
is shuffleboard, bridge,
archery and things like that.
It is very much a broad
span."
If you need a spark to get
you started, just spend a few
minutes with this vivacious
92-year-old gold medal win-
ner.

Here a hog, there a hog .
Wild hogs are ugly critters,
perhaps the most ugly of any
I have ever seen.
I have hunted nearly every
small wild game animal
except for the wild hog.
During my most active
years afield, wild hogs were
nearly unheard of and I never
ran across a wild hog while
hunting.
Several years ago, when
my-family and I lived on a
rural farm in the midwest, we
raised and butchered hogs for
our winter's food supply.
Our domestic breed of pigs
were either Duroc,
Hampshire, Yorkshire or one
of their many cross-bred off-
spring.
There was no comparison
to the wiry haired, long snout
and long-legged feral hog -
shucks, our domestic hogs
were down right purty along-
side a wild hog.
There are so many feral
hogs over running the coun-
try now that the state of
Missouri has declared war
and says.the wild hog must
be eradicated.
State officials have had
enough of the feral hog's
population growth and in
1999, urged hunters to just
shoot on sight.
Even that drastic step
failed to stop the four-legged
roto-rooter's population from
continued growth.
We may not need to go
quite that far here in Florida
but we'll see when the state
tallies up the next feral pig
census.
These ugly critters com-
pete with native wildlife such'
as deer, and they eat the eggs
of ground-nesting quail and
turkeys.
Worse yet, they also trans-
mit disease to livestock and
people.
These wide-ranging free
spirits have rooted and
squealed their way all across
the country and can now be
seen in every cow pasture,
open woodland and even
urban back yards.
They have developed an
intelligence that allows them
to adapt quickly to being
hunted.
Trapping has been consid-


Outdoors
Lloyd Jones


ered but after the first few
captures, the feral hog
becomes very trap-shy and
the traps come up empty.
Missouri officials say that
some unscrupulous people
have brought feral hogs into
the state and released them
on public lands.
The officials say the meas-
ures being taken to rid the
state of the nuisance snorters
may seem extreme, the stakes
could hardly be higher. The
hogs have transmitted swine
pseudorabies to large scale
livestock operations in other
states with catastrophic
results.
Missouri's wild hogs num-
ber somewhere between a
low of 5,000 and upwards of
10,000.
People need to be wary of
the danger from these disease
carriers.
Leptospirosis can infect
people as well as livestock.
Flu-like symptoms make it
difficult to diagnose in
humans.
About one person in ten
develops a form of Weil's
disease that can be fatal.
Most human cases can be
cured with the use of antibi-
otics.
Florida has a large popula-
tion of feral hogs on its'
state-owned lands.
The state should be doing
everything it can to get rid of
the disease carriers on public
lands.
Help should also be avail-
able for private landowners
in their efforts to eradicate
this dangerous nuisance.

Game magazine for informa-
tion used in this column.

Football season harkens fond memories


Tis the season.
No, not Christmas. It is
that glorious time of the
year which all arm
chair quarterbacks, high
school heros, and college
fanatics look forward to.
Football.
Oh, yeah.
Ah, the memories. The
week long practice, working
hard and running til you
thought you would hurl.
The drills, sprints, and the
practice in pads in the late
summer heat. Two-a-days.
Playbooks, and chalk talks.
Then, Friday came.
Everyone one of us were
heros every week. If you
got to wear the jersey to
school you walked a little
taller, and held your head a
little higher.
It did not matter if you
won or lost, there was some-
thing special about
belonging to' a team.
Even if you did not like
some of the other players,
they were still YOUR team.
During those Friday's,
school was a blur. Lunch
happened, then the
afternoon dragged it's
feet. Now what? You need-
ed something to do between
the time school let out until
you had to be in the locker
room.
Eat, nah. Sleep? Where?
Ride around? Save the gas
for Saturday night riding the


Ed Baldridge
mall.
Oh, the sweet anticipa-
tion.

Finally getting to suit
up. Butterflies, and last
minute instruction.
Some were quiet. Some
were jittery. Some would
not stop talking. Me, I was
quiet. I Was never over con-
fident, I just wanted to get
the job done.
Then, it happened. The
lights came on, and we were
released out unto the field
like a pack of animals.
Many people have said
that a good coach knew after
the first play how the game
would go. With us, we did-
n't't care. Just don't let the
others down. Do your job
and the team ran smoothly.
I never really heard the
crowd. Once I stepped onto
the field it was all focus. I
was in "the zone." You hear
about "the zone" all the
time. That moment where
everything seems simple,
and you just know what to


do. That moment in the
movies where there is clari-
ty, then determination.
Yep, I have been there,
and I can tell you there is
peace, even among all the
violence of the sport.
We finished my senior
year 7-3 after a heartbreak-
ing loss by just 2 points that
last game. That kept us out
of the district lead, and
ended play for most.
Although I was fortunate
and got to play college foot-
ball, it was.not the same.
Now, a few years older
and well, somewhat heavier,
I get to report on the sport I
loved. High School football
in my hometown. There is
just
something special about
high school football to me.
Maybe it is just the
memories.
On a final note, I recent-
ly interviewed the head
coach of Avon Park, and I
was impressed with his old
school attitude and knowl-
edge of the game.
But the highlight of the
interview did not happen
while we were talking, it
happened before the' inter-
view even began.
I was early, which is
something ihat constantly
surprises my wife even after
20 years of marriage, and I

Continued from 1D
was able to step out onto the
game field.
It was hot, but the sun was
waining. The smell of the
grass was '-
overwhelming. There was
a gentle breeze. Stirring the
flag gently. I


had the urge to make a
short sprint, like in the days
of yore, but I talked
myself out of it. No use
having a heart attack. That
would embarrass the kids.
Even if the body is failing,
and the eyesight is not as
good, the
excitement is still there.
Those old conditioned feel-
ings springing back to life.


Where are the holes, how is
the grass, which way the wind
was
blowing. The smell of a
locker room. For a second,
without thinking, I was back
in "the zone." A fine day for
football.
1, along with millions of ___- -. 0 q4.
others across the country, am*
looking forward to the season.

Interactive Web site for cyclers has been 'discovered'


I'm the Christopher
Columbus of the Internet.
Every now and then I discov-
er new and exciting Web sites
that open a world of possibili-
ties.
By the time I make landfall
on the shores of a new URL -
typically while searching. for
some unrelated destination -
there are already thousands of
established users.
One such place is
MapMyRide.com, to which an
editor and fellow novice triath-
lete pointed me.
I recently registered with it
and am still learning how to use
its features, which include
searching and mapping routes,
tracking workouts, discussion
forums and more.
Using the map function, you
can overlay your bicycling or
running routes onto a standard
road map, satellite photos, a
combination of the two or a.
topographic map.
A tool bar allows you to cus-
tomize the route, marking
points of interest, bathroom
facilities, water points, stretch
zones and parking.
When adding checkpoints,
you can include explanations,.
On the YMCA 5k running
route I added, I noted a discrep-
ancy between Google Maps and
recent names changes.I
Where Flare Road intersects


Open and Shutt
Kevin 1. Shutt
with U.S. 27, I clarify that it
used to be Howey Road, which
the online map still shows.
After plotting a route, you
can designate it as a bike ride,
run, dog walk, kayak/canoe,


horseback trail, hiking trail,
commute, swim or walk.
You can also export routes to
a GPS unit to take with you, or
print them with accompanying
notes.
Routes can be saved into an
integrated training log that
cumulates miles covered, calo-
ries expended, weight fluctua-
tions, personal notes and other
information.
Those who are serious about
training keep detailed logs to
determine cause and effect
between what's going on in
their lives and its impact on
their workouts.
Runners can track what shoes
they wore for specific runs to

track wear and tear. The site
recommends replacing your
sneaks every 300-500 miles.
The site is free to use in basic
form and I haven't come across
a link for premium member-
ship. I haven't looked, either.
It does require registration
and it tracks your. activity,
rewarding you for interactivity.
Points toward Backcountry.com
gift cards.


For every route you add, you
earn points. The value depends
on whether you choose to make
it available for public viewing
or to keep it private. Either way,
you'll get points. There're other
ways to earn points.
There's also
BikeJournal.com, which I used
frequently until I moved here. It
had a neat feature that showed
how you compared with other


riders based on mileage ridden.
But, I think MapMyRide has
neater functions.
Sister sites include
MapMyRun, MapmyTri,
MapMyHike, etc. They're the
offspring of
MapMyFitness.com.
