Council will discuss APPD chief vacancy Monday night


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Friday was the
final day on the job for Avon Park
Police Chief Frank Mercurio, but
whether or not he will be replaced
will be a decision left up to city
council members.
At their Sept. 10 meeting, council
members turned back a request by
City Manager C.B. Shirey to fill a
pair of positions in the city's public
works department. They nixed the
idea, pointing to a July action freez-
ing any new employee hires.
Council approved the embargo at
a July budget discussion in prepara-
tion for a planned vote on the so-


City has hiring freeze in place, which may


affect search for Mercurio's replacement


called 'super-exemption.'
Slated to be part of the January
presidential preference primary, the
measure would give residents the
ability to vote themselves a large
scale taix exemption.
City officials agreed such an inter-
ruption of property taxes might crip-
ple the city.
However, that issue was knocked
off the presidential primary ballot
last month when Leon County


Circuit Court Judge
Charles A. Francis
ruled the language
for the amendment
was misleading and
unclear.
j Nevertheless,
Mercury Shirey said the
Mercurio
message from the
council in turning
down the public works employees
replacement was crystal clear.


"A freeze is a freeze, and we need
to hold the line on that," Mayor
Sharon Schuler said at the time.
Shirey will bring the police chief
issue before the council at the
Monday session and it can decide
whether or not it wants to name a
new chief, somebody to fill the slot
on an interim basis or to leave the
situation as it is at this time.
Currently, the department's busi-
ness is being handled by


Commander Michael Rowan.
In the meantime, applications for
the job continue to pour into the city
manager's office. An ad placed in
'The Florida Police Chief,' a quar-
terly newsletter designed to keep
members of the Florida Police
Chief's Association up to date on the
latest news about the association as
well as law enforcement issues and
trends.
Shirey told the 'council the initial
offering had generated a lot of inter-
est.
"Most of them are from out of
town," Shirey said.

Dealing with a growing problem


AG plans to toughen penalties for grow house operations


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING Marijuana gro',
houses have become a major prob-
lem in Florida over the past year.
and the state's top law enforce-
ment official has issued proposal
to deal with the issue.
The "Marijuana Grow House
Eradication Act," released
Tuesday by Attorney General Bill
McCollum, is designed to fightt
ithe incire.asin lthieal ut a inlarijud-
ad na grow houses pose to neighbor-
hoods throughout Florida."
according to a press release from
McCollum's office.
The measure, which will likely\
be taken up by the legislature in it,
2008 session, has several require-
ments designed to increase penal-
ties on grow houses located near
children, while also making the
process of prosecuting the grow -
ers easier on law enforcement per-
sonnel.
The measure features stronger
penalties for growers when a child
is present at the house, along with
stronger penalties for illegal drugs
that are near children three years
old or younger.
"My priority is protecting our,
children and our communities
from the devastation of illegal
drugs," McCollum said in the
release. "This legislation targets
those who grow marijuana for
profit."
Florida ranked second in the
nation behind California in the
amount of grow houses discovered
in 2006, and 41 of the state's 67
counties have dealt with the hous-
es. In Highlands County, 48 have
been discovered since October of
last year.

A Drug Enforcement Agent piles up marijuana taken out of a Sebring house Nov. 8 of last year. Nine
houses were raided in the county that day, netting 656 marijuana plants, 13 arrests and two children
taken into protective custody.


'Highlands County Sheriff's Office
said that although he hadn't seen
the specifics of McCollum's pro-
posal, tough new measures deal-
ing with the grow house problem
would be welcome.
"It's long overdue, and hopeful-
ly this is just the beginning part of


it," LaBelle said. "It sounds like a
step in the right direction, but any-
thing is better than nothing."
Another provision of the bill
will allow pictures or video
recordings of grow house equip-'
ment to be used as evidence in tri-
als. Previously, law enforcement


was forced to keep the equipment
in custody as evidence, a process
LaBelle called a "huge overbur-
den."
The bill will also permit the
destruction of the equipment once

Macklin's proposed

appointment sparks

CRA rule review
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Councilwoman
Brenda Gray pulled a proposed appoint-
ment to the Southside Community
Redevelopment advisory board from Avon
Park' consent agenda to discuss whether
the rules need changing.
Tom Macklin, the former mayor, was
the designated appointee.
"My understanding is that Mr. Macklin
does not own any property or live within
the Southside CRA," Gray said Monday
evening.
Avon Park recently, and to the chagrin
of some members, changed the Southside
Community Redevelopment Agency com-
mission into an advisory board. The coun-
cil assumed the CRA voting authority.
Advisory board members aren't gov-
erned by the same regulations as an actual
CRA.
Gray recommended not appointing
Macklin and changing the rules for a
board appointment.
"I recommend that we take it back to
the Southside CRA advisory board and
allow them to come up with some kind of
guidelines before we appoint anybody else
to the board," she said, offering a motion
to table Macklin's appointment.
Councilmen Doug Eason and George
Hall voted against the motion, which
passed 3-2.
Doug Barnard questioned why
Macklin's exclusion, noting the former
mayor participated in the reconfiguration
of the Southside and Main Street redevel-
opment agencies they were out of com-
pliance with Department of Community
Affairs mandates.
Delores Blackmon, a Southside CRA
advisory board member who allegedly
doesn't live within the redevelopment
agency's boundaries, accused Macklin of
being "against the southside," saying he
had not attended several southside events.

Multi-car crash on U.S. 27
News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Both sides of U.S. 27 are littered with
debris Tuesday afternoon following a
multi-car crash involving three cars
near the Raceway gas station in Sebring
that saw at least two people taken to the
hospital. Lake Placid attorney Bert
Harris III was southbound when a
black Chevrolet Avalanche careened
across the median and struck his left-
rear quarter panel. Harris wasn't hurt
in the crash that sent him spinning into
a roadside traffic sign. As to what
caused the first crash in the north-
bound lanes, Harris had no knowledge.
'He was out of control coming toward

Fall bazaar

set for Oct. 6

in Avon Park
Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Beta
Sigma Phi's eighth annual
Fall Bazaar will be held on
the shore of beautiful Lake
Verona at Donaldson Park
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Saturday. Approximately 40
craft vendors of various
handicrafts will participate.
The 12 members of Xi Nu
Sigma, the Avon Park chapter
of Beta Sigma Phi, have been
planning the annual event
during the year.
The bazaar is the chapter's
only fundraiser during the
year for community service
projects. Previous years have
seen donations to the Food
Bank, Church Service Center,
the Highlands County Safe
House, Sun Room and other
local organizations.
Always held the first
Saturday of October, the Fall
Bazaar has become an inter-
generational event. Avon
Park High School's Interact
Club, whose adult mentor is
Karen Tifft, a Beta Sigma Phi
member, helps the vendors
unload, set up their booth and
also assists in clean up after
the bazaar is over.
The various artisans sched-
uled to appear include wood-
working, candles, jams and
jellies, painted saws, jewelry
and other unique works of art.
The chapter's focus is to
encourage individual and
non-profit crafters by provid-
ing a venue. Many of the par-
ticipants have been with the
Fall Bazaar since its incep-
tion, such as Venus Veggies.
Rather than accepting com-
mercial vendors, Xi Nu
Sigma encourages civic
groups to become involved in
sponsoring food booths, the
kid's tent and other worthy
causes.
Funds for the chapter come
from the drinks canteen fea-
- turning Coke products and
water on the day of the bazaar
as well as the vendors' entry
and spot fees. Approximately
1,500 people attend.
Corporate sponsorships are
still available, as well as ven-
dor booths.
For further information
about the Fall Bazaar itself,

Man charged with molesting 4-year-old


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun .coin
AVON PARK A recent arrest of an Avon
Park man for sexual assault on a 4-year-old
begs the question how well do you know
your baby-sitter?
The alleged sexual assault was first discov-
ered when the victim was being bathed and
complained her private area hurt.
Kendrick Clarke, 20, had been baby-sitting
the young girl for a year.
Responding to a complaint by the victim's
mother, an unnamed investigator arrived at
Clarke's residence to find "photographs of
children on the walls," and "an abundance of
children's clothing, including bathing suits
and underwear on a dresser in (the suspect's)
bedroom," the report stated.
In an interview with the victim by
Highlands County Sheriff's Office investiga-
tors, she allegedly stated Clarke inappropriate-
ly touched her private area two times.
She alleged he touched her chest area and


also observed him kissing the chest area of
another child. The victim stated Clarke asked
her not to tell her mother about the events, the
report said.
Clarke was brought in to Criminal
Investigations department of the HCSO to dis-
cuss the incident.
After denying criminal involvement with
the victim for an hour, Clarke began to admit
once, when dressing the victim for church, he
"accidentally" touched her inappropriately, the
report said.
His excuse for not speaking about the inci-
dent earlier in the interview with HCSO inves-
tigators was because he feared being arrested
if he admitted to touching the victim. He
allegedly continued to say he was sorry for his
actions and only touched inappropriately the
victim one time.
He further stated he was not a pedophile and
does not need help, the report said.
Clarke remains in the Highlands County Jail
without bond.

Florida motorists urged to

input emergency contacts


Would allow for quicker
notification of family in
in event of an accident
Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE One
year ago today, the Florida
Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles
implemented a new emer-
gency, contact information.
system that allows Florida
motorists to voluntarily pro-
vide emergency contact infor-
mation online using their
Florida driver licenses or
Florida identification cards.
The information can then
be accessed by law enforce-
ment officers to notify desig-
nated contacts if a motorist is
seriously injured or killed in a
traffic crash.
After her daughter Tiffany
was critically injured in a
traffic crash in 2005,
Christine Olson was not
immediately notified of the
incident because law enforce-
ment officers working the
crash had no emergency con-
tact information. By the time
Olson was contacted it was
too late for her to say good-
bye to her daughter.
She felt that some kind of
system needed to be in place
that would ensure the imme-
diate contact of parents and
loved ones in cases like this,
so she asked for help from her


state legislator,
Representative Bill Galvano,
who put her in contact with
DHSMV.
"We encourage all
Floridians to take a few
moments and input this vital
information," said Electra
Bustle, executive director of
DHSMV. "In the event of an
unfortunate emergency, hav-
ing this information readily at
hand will allow the law
enforcement officials to
.quickly get in touch with
those listed as a contact."
On this first-year anniver-
sary DHSMV officials are
once again urging Florida
motorists to go online and
enter their emergency contact
information. To date, more
than 743,000 Floridians have
already done so.
However, with more than
18 million licensed drivers
and identification card hold-
ers in the state, many more
need to take the time to go
online and enter their infor-
mation.
Anyone with a valid
Florida driver license or iden-
tification card can go online
and enter their emergency
contact information at
www.hsmv.state.fl.us. The
information is kept secure and
is only used by law enforce-
ment officials in case of an
emergency.

State Farm reaches agreement with state to lower rates


Special to the News-Sun
WINTER HAVEN State Farm,
the largest private insurer of homes
and the largest auto insurer in
Florida, announced Tuesday it had
reached an agreement with the
Office of Insurance Regulation and
the Office of the Attorney General in
an effort to provide short-term sta-
bility to Florida's property insurance
market. This agreement also pro-
vides that State Farm Florida will
reduce its homeowners rates by an


additional two percent. In connec-
tion with the presumed factor filing
made last March, this brings the
total reduction to approximately
nine percent. The rate decrease will
become effective as soon as practi-
cal and customers will see the new
rates with future renewals.
This agreement is a step in State
Farm's long-term efforts to work
with public policymakers to meet
the needs of Florida's challenging
homeowners insurance market. The


agreement further demonstrates a
genuine and revitalized spirit of
cooperation between the OIR, the
OAG, and State Farm to focus on the
long-standing interests of the public
and State Farm customers.
"State Farm wants to be part of
the solution for our customers, the
state and our company," said Joe
Formusa, President, State Farm
Florida Insurance Company. "This
agreement moves us in that direc-
tion," Formusa added.


In addition to the rate decrease,
the agreement also helps to clarify a
number of issues including: State
Farm's application of a multi-line
discount to its auto customers; State
Farm's current plans to reduce its
hurricane exposure by non-
renewals; Guidelines for placing
auto customers in different State
Farm companies based on driving
records; and, an over collection and
subsequent refund of Citizens
Property Insurance Co. assessments.


State Farm has also agreed to reim-
burse the OIR and the OAG for their
attorneys' fees and other costs asso-
ciated with the time and resources
spent resolving these matters.
This agreement demonstrates
State Farm's wish for a healthy and
competitive insurance marketplace
in Florida. It is a short-term meas-
ure designed to assist in creating the
environment in which a long-term
solution can be crafted.

It's great to have little helpers in the
kitchen. But as your children learn the
basics of cooking, be sure to follow
these kitchen safety rules:


Turn pot handles toward the back of the
stove to prevent spills.
Protect little hands with mitts.
Use large bowls to minimize mixing spills.
Treat mild kitchen burns with cold water
or ice, but never butter.
Children should not be left in the kitchen
unattended while cooking.

The Greatest Woman we ever knew
Had th'e eyes of beautiful blue
She had the heart of a child
very forgiving, meek and mild
She showed the greatest love
which we thought only came from above
she walked through life with courage,
While others looked on with discourage
She never complained of life's rough road
She just thanked God for helping her carry the load
She gives us joy and pride
We know she will always be by our side
This Wonderful Lady could be no other
Than our precious and dearest mother

Greed has taken
control of government
Editor:
Well I've said it before and
I'll say it again greed has
taken control of our govern-
ment.
Bush, Cheney, Halliburton
and the Builderburgers are
trying everything in their
power to provoke Iran into
doing something to give
Bush an excuse to attack
Iran.
Weapons of Mass
Destruction was the lies and
deception that they used to,
attack Iraq, so that they could
control Iraqi oil, so what .
excuse will they dream up
this time to attack and con-
trol Iranian oil?
The Bush administration
are expert con artists at
deceiving the people to satis-
fy their quest of greed?
Is there no honor in our
government anymore?

Make our votes
meaningful
Editor:
Since the end of the
Vietnam war the American
people have become politi-
cally inert and willfully unin-
formed, preferring to swal-
low whole, misinformation
and lies, rather than to
actively investigate the facts
and act appropriately and in
accordance with their best
interests.
Having been seduced into
a useless war they now prefer
inaction rather than partici-
pate in taking steps to restore
the control of their govern-
ment into their own hands.
We have eschewed protest,
not seen in American since
our youth brought the
Vietnam war to an end.
Protest has become unfash-
ionable, regardless of the


provocation.
By contrast, Europeans are
quick to hold their govern-
ments accountable. Tinker
with the rights of employees
to vacations, or the price of
gasoline or some other com-
modity and the streets are
filled with vigorous objec-
tors, not the least bit. shy in
letting their government
know of their displeasure.
Americans, who once jeal-
ously guarded their rights,
would now be embarrassed
by such demonstrations.
Perhaps we are all suffer-
ing under the delusion that
we are all of the upper mid-
dle class, regardless of the
reality of our circumstances,
living from paycheck to pay-
check, and we are easily
divided and manipulated on
many issues where unity -of
purpose would be in our best
interest.
Thus working class
Americans embrace the label
"conservative" and vote
against our interests having
succumbed to a propaganda
machine unrivaled in history.
Better, more affordable
health care, increases in min-
imum wage, job protection
need only be tainted as
"socialism" to be universally
rejected. Institutions that pur-
sue the public interest are
called "left wing" and their
voices are largely ignored.
How the average American
has been persuaded to ignore
his own interests is an exer-
cise in Orwellian double-
think, perhaps a carryover
from the cold war or the
McCarthy era, when one had
only to utter the word
"Communist" to give the kiss
of death to any idea, however
worthy.
This syndrome has permit-
ted the reactionary elements
of the conservative right to
all but destroy the labor
movement, convincing work-
ers that unions were their


enemy, as a consequence of
which unions, and workers
benefits and protection have
declined.
The charge of "socialized
medicine," another right
wing bug-a-boo, has permit-
ted the insurance industry to
suck the oxygen out of the
room whenever any single
pay system of health care is
discussed. Meanwhile our
congress has been bought off
by the lobbyists of the big
health care and insurance
industries. Small wonder that
retiring congressmen and
their staffers resurface as
lobbyists earning million dol-
lar salaries from the drug
industry.
We have been told to vote
every two years and other-
wise to keep our mouths
shut, less we be regarded as
too radical. Of course when
it's time to vote we are
diverted by such sham issues
as insults to the flag and gay
relationships while the ras-
cals continue to run the coun-
try to their own selfish
advantage. We are told the
system is broken, so why
bother to vote, and the puny
turnout proves the effective-
ness of this tactic.
Perhaps, the recent excess-
es and abuses of the Bush
administration will finally
jerk us out of our lethargy
and produce a meaningful
reaction to what has been a
slow dismantling of the bet-
ter aspects of our govern-
ment.
Let us concentrate on what
our government needs to do
rather than have our attention
directed to such meaningless
exercises like voting for
American Idol, or the equally
silly polls advanced by the
talking heads of television.
Good government is a par-
ticipatory activity, not a TV
game.

The painful world of man greetings may date back to the cave-man days


Why do men feel the need to greet
each other with an act of violence? I
don't know how many times a day I
get slapped on the back, chest, butt,
head or punched in the arm, stomach
or shoulder as a so-called greeting.
Or, there is the (and old guys love
doing this) "let me give you a hand-
shake that makes you cry." Why do
we do this?
In my first year in college we were
given these giant keys to our dorm
rooms. Despite its huge size I kept
forgetting the thing and locking
myself out. So I got the great idea to
wear it around my neck. Seemed
smart enough, and it fixed the prob-
lem of getting locked out all the time.
Yeah, bad idea! .
At least three or four times a day,
some guy would hit me in the chest.
Just a lovely little man greeting driv-
ing the keyosaurus-rex into my wee
wittle man cleavage. Add to that-the
fact that I often feel the need to'make
sarcastic remarks to women, which
usually leads them to hit me, typical-
ly one of those backhanders to the
chest. With those powers combined,
scar tissuewas forming instead of
chest hair.
I suppo le I could have fixed half
the problem just by stopping the sar-


castic remarks. But I just
couldn't seem to quit. That
probably would have helped
my relationships; women
often don't seem to particu-
larly appreciate cutting sar-
casm. I don't know why.
I was thinking about how
maybe my sarcasm towards i
women is really some sort [
of Freudian desire to be
touched by the opposite sex WI
any way you can get it.
"Single-manitis" I believe it
is termed.
Yeah, yeah, I know; cut the sar-


casm and maybe you won't be a sin-
gle man. Whatever. It isn't that easy;
it is obviously a Catch 22 circle of
doom. Must be touched, must have
sarcasm.
I finally got rid of the key. I
learned how to utilize pockets and
four years later my chest is almost
fully healed. Still, why do men have
to knock each other around to show
we love each other? Has it always
been this way? Is this the evolution
of man-love?
At first I thought maybe the whole
thing has been getting worse since
the dawn of time. But then I thought
that just can't be true because then


)abbling
ith Daniel
Daniel Bedell


cave men would have been
clubbing each other to death
to say, "Hello me friend
Thor."
Our need must stem from
the fact that men now go
days, months, years, even
lifetimes not being able to
club seals, wooly mam-
moths or brontosauruses.
Instead we club each other!
Think about it, men are
obviously supposed to put
the beat down on some-


thing. Me man, need pain, roaaarrrr!
If we inflict this physicality on
women, society says it is wrong
(which I do agree with). Also, they
are fragile creatures, making them
unfun for beating purposes. You want
something that you can lay into, like
say, a man! Roaaarrrr!
For a lot of us guys that means we
started off wrestling our dads. At the
time they seemed pretty close to
wooly mammoths. Dads used to be
huge back when I was a kid. The
species has really taken a turn for the
dinkier since my childhood though.
After dads we started taking it to
friends. My friends and I wrestled
whenever we could. In elementary
school this involved a lot of karate


chops and shouts of hiii-yaaa! Then
we mixed this with some World
Wrestling Federation.
I had one friend who would come
over on Saturday nights and we
would watch Walker Texas Ranger
and then beat the mess out of each
other. Boy, those were the days. Even
up through high school my friends
and I would wrestle when the teacher
left the room.
No one wants to wrestle anymore,
though! It's horrible. Apparently,
wrestling doesn't fit into the adult
definition of ideal business practices.
I bet if there was a 15-minute
wrestling break per day, people
would get so much more accom-
plished. They could even have it at
church on the weekends; between
prayer and offering there would be
the Jacob and the Angel re-enact-
ment.
I sure hope we adopt these plans
because I am getting tired of blind-
side man-greetings that I have to
bandage later.

Writer's


block blues

It is not that I do not like
to write, for that is most cer-
tainly not it at all. It is just
hard to explain; it is almost
like a creeping up sensation
that you cannot catch before
hand. Perhaps, the best anal-
ogy for it is a cold that starts
off with a sneeze. You do not
think much of it, maybe just
a bit of pollen in the air.
Then it turns into the full-out
coughing and wheezing.
Soon enough, the best medi-
cine for it is resting in bed
with maybe a bit of chicken
noodle soup.
If only that was the reme-
dy for the writer's blocks
blues. You would have peo-
ple all across the nation tak-
ing the day off of work and
Campbell's stock sales
would raise. You could
expect it to come around in
full swing about the mid-
term time period, while there
are outbreak sessions
throughout the year. Perhaps
companies would even start
putting research teams
together to find cures or even
a prevention shot.
Yet, it is just not the case.
What you do have are people
wandering around their
homes or work places look-
ing for that odd job to com-
plete. Perhaps it is the small
load'of white clothes that
you were just getting to. Or
maybe you cleaned the very
tops of the fans for that
sparkling look. It can even
make you ask other people if
they need help completing a
project. Yet, all along, your
work is sitting on your desk
beckoning to be done.
On other, more specific
occasions, the symptoms can
take other forms. It could be
displayed as a general foul
attitude, especially enhanced
by a small, otherwise harm-
less, act. In more severe
cases, it could cause a person
to skip out on other work, or
the day all together. In the
worst case scenario, the
entire day is lost due to the
foul attitudes, upset behav-
ior, and a general laziness
with work.
Although I am not a
trained specialist, I have had
quite of bit of field experi-
ence in the writer's block
blues syndrome. What I have
found to work the best is the
apply-yourself prescription.
This can also be found as the
medicine 'just get down to
it,' the generic version.
Either way, whether it comes
in the form of writing or
work, there are no shots or
medicines to aid in the
recovery of this syndrome.
The best method of recovery
is to frankly apply yourself.
From a person just getting
over the blues, happy heal-
ing!

STOP
Continued from 1A
off U.S. 27 and onto West Bell Street, then left
on South Hart Avenue.
While on Hart Avenue, the car drove down the
center of the road and drifted back and forth
between the center of the road and the shoulder.
Suspecting the driver might be under the influ-
ence, Worley proceeded to pull the SUV over,
the report said.
The driver continued for an estimated 200
feet, then abruptly pulled off the road onto the
grass shoulder on Hart Avenue. The driver then
exited the car and allegedly started running.
Worley rolled down his window and yelled at
the man, later identified as Pollard Taylor, 21, to
stop. Taylor continued to run through neighbor-
hood yards as the officer gave chase in his police
car, eventually stopping Taylor on West Kersey
Street, the report said.
During a search of the suspect, Worley
allegedly discovered a plastic cigar case with
suspected crack cocaine and a small plastic
baggy with suspected methamphetamine, both
field tested positive for the two respective sub-
stances.
Taylor was handcuffed and taken into custody.
A search of the SUV allegedly turned up a par-
tially smoked cigar, containing a green leafy
plant material, which tested positive for marijua-
na.
He was transported to the Highlands County
Jail for booking and then to Polk County for his
warrant. Taylor will return to Highlands County
to face the additional charges.


CHIEF
Continued from 1A
A partial list of applicants includes: Walter
Zalisko, who serves as the Port Orange Florida
Regional Corporate security director for the
Avis Budget Group; Ralph A: DelSardo, a pro-
fessional security consultant in Massapequa,
N.Y.; Harry J. Gillway of Omaha, Neb., whose
credits include a stint with C-2
Counterintelligence Support in Iraq; Sarrafina
Tomaselli of Knoxville, Tenn., who is a United
Nations police officer/advisor-Haiti, and
Jeffrey D. Hollan of Cape Coral, who owns a
private investigative firm.


Mercurio was asked for his resignation ear-
lier this month on the heels of a stormy July
budget session where he and councilman Doug
Eason had a heated exchange over the city's
police cruiser take-home policy.
* As to the short-handed utilities department,
Public Works coordinator Ted Long said the
department has done some shuffling to com-
pensate.
"We've had to back off some preventative
maintenance programs until we can get back
up to full staff but, really, we're handling
things OK right now," he said.
Long lost the two employees over a period
of several weeks with both deciding to pursue
other avenues of employment.


CRA
Continued from 1A
"I've always attempted to look at the com-
munity as a whole and not separate geograph-
ical areas bound together through assessments,
taxes and municipal services," Macklin said,
defending himself.
He told the council that the only key to the
city he gave was to Clarence Black and that he
used personal time to attend Martin Luther
King Jr. breakfasts.
The Southside CRA, however, has had diffi-
culty obtaining a quorum, he noted.
"Had I been (appointed) at that time there


would have been enough for a quorum,"
Macklin said of a CRA meeting that was can-
celed for lack of board-member attendance.
City Manager C.B. Shirey explained the
reconfiguration of the CRA eliminated resi-
dency requirements for the advisory boards.
Gray called for the issue to be taken back to
the advisory board for their recommendation.
Blackmon, upset the group couldn't raise a
quorum, said she was "very concerned" about
who serves on the advisory committee.
"To me, you have to care," she said. "These
are issues that have to be taken care of. You
have to be in something to know about it, you
have to experience something to know about
it."

GROW
Continued from 1A
the investigations are com-
plete, while giving law
enforcement immunity from
civil lawsuits that could be
filed by the previous owners
of the equipment.
"That's a huge issue,"
LaBelle said. "If that can be
clarified, that would be big."
LaBelle termed the rise in
local grow houses an "epi-
demic." Although some stan-
dards have gotten tougher,
such as a reduction of traf-
ficking requirements from 50
to 25 pounds, "we're
nowhere near where we need
to be," he said.
LaBelle said he hopes more
tough proposals dealing with
grow houses are forthcoming,
specifically legislation deal-
ing with the health issues
being faced by law enforce-
ment personnel.
Officers face many dangers
in dealing with grow houses,
LaBelle said, because they
usually have highly flamma-
ble materials such as carbon
dioxide and propane that cre-
ate a risk of explosions. It's
too early to tell what health
issues might arise from fight-
ing the grow houses, LaBelle
said.
There are also issues with
realtors not wanting to dis-
close whether their houses
were once used for growing
marijuana, a situation that
could present dangerous
health issues.
"If you start looking in the
houses, there's mold that's in
the walls from chemicals and
moisture," LaBelle said. "It's
disgusting and a huge health
hazard. An unsuspecting fam-
ily buys the house, and they
have no idea what has taken
place there."
"This is the first time I've
heard anything proactively,"
LaBelle said. "I think they're
starting to realize that this is a
huge problem."
LaBelle called the grow
houses a form of "organized
crime," and said the depart-
ment has already had to deal
with home invasions and rob-
beries related to the houses.
"There's a lot of collateral
damage and violence that
goes with them," LaBelle
said. "Everybody thought
before 'it's just marijuana,
it's not that bad.' I think now
(the Legislature) is starting to
realize we've got a big prob-
lem here."

The grand staircase of the Kenilworth Lodge lobby was a perfect entry point to show off
beautiful wedding fashion at the Central Florida Bridal Gala. Brides, grooms, maids of
honor and best men modeled in front of the crowd, made up of more than 60 brides
and their entourage from close friends to mothers and grooms. Ring bearers and
flower girls showed off their fancy duds, too. Nearly 40 exhibitors were in attendance to
show off everything from food to fashion.



What to give the bride and groom

TROPICAL HARBOR
Barbara Kelleher

LAKE PLACID Sept.
24 we had our coed coffee
and there seemed to be a lot
more people, which means
our residents from the north
are starting to get a bit of
cool weather and want to
return to our beautiful state
of Florida to enjoy the sun-
shine. Our hosts were Robert
and Jean Noyes who provid-
ed the group with a delicious
assortment of doughnuts and
eclairs in honor of their 57th
wedding anniversary, which
was Sept. 10, however this
was the only date open on the
Monday calendar so they
signed up in order to share
the happy occasion with their
friends and neighbors.
Louise Smith, our emcee


told a cute little joke about
peanuts and the bus driver for
senior citizens. Returnees:
Glad to see Mary Ann Lane
back, also Jeanne Horton.
Bonnie Allen filled in for
Carol Noel and read the
names of residents who had
surgery and need our
thoughts and prayers. They
are: Phyllis Williams, who is
now home following her
heart surgery; Richard
Koehler, who is having hip
surgery; and Marilyn Fisher
and Patti Blount, whose sister
passed away. Activities -
Rachel Francis told the group
that the Hawaiian Luau will
be a ham dinner and fruit
punch, tea and coffee for $3.
Residents are to bring a dish
to pass to feed at least eight
people. They are planning
various games; it will be a
fun evening for everyone.
The deadline was Sept. 25.
Other activities: Duane
Dean mentioned that bingo is
every Friday beginning at 7
p.m. It's lots of fun and you
get free popcorn too.
Doris Bierstine told the
group that Bill and Helene
Delosh were so happy to hear
from the various residents
who sent get well cards to
Bill and others called by
phone to let them know they
were thinking about them.
They are still in New York
State. As you may remember,


Bill fell and broke his neck.
Louise then asked Virginia
Tharp to play the piano in
order for us to sing to the
various residents who were
celebrating their birthday -
Dottie Morra, Betty Schultz,
Sandra Holderegger. Then we
went on to sing happy
anniversary to Joe and Joan
Shannon, and Robert and
Jean Noyes. The meeting
ended at 10:30 a.m.
Sept. 25 we had the ladies
coffee. We had 12 ladies
present. The meeting was
very short in order to finish
with the decorations for the
luau dinner.
Sept. 27, we had 80 resi-
dents attend the Hawaiian
Luau dinner. Residents came
in their beautiful colorful
outfits, which even included
grass skirts. The clubhouse
was decorated with parrots,
real hibiscus flowers, colorful
leis. The food was delicious
baked ham, rolls, desserts
galore and various dishes that
enhanced the banquet.
Following the meal we had
Hawaiian dances performed
by eight men and two
women, all dressed in grass
skirts. We had a hula hoop
contest that was won by
Cheron Piper; many of the
prizes were fresh pineapples.
A great time was had by all.
Rachel Francis and her com-
mittee did an outstanding job.

Eating and exercise


When you eat and what
you eat can affect your per-
formance and the way you
feel while you're exercising.
Coordinate your meals,
snacks and drinks to optimize
your exercise routine.
Eating a lot before exer-
cise can slow you down.
When you exercise after a
large meal, you may feel
sluggish or have an upset
stomach, cramping and/or
diarrhea. That's because your
muscles and digestive system
are competing with each
other for energy sources.
Your body is trying to do two
things requiring blood supply
and energy simultaneously -
digesting the food you just
ate and providing fuel to
keep your muscles active.
Time it right: Before, dur-
ing and after your work-out.
On the flip side, not eating
before exercise can be just as
bad as eating too much. Low
blood sugar levels that result
from not eating.can make
you feel weak, faint or tired
and your mental abilities may
be affected as well, making
you slower to react. To get
the most from your workout,
follow these guidelines:
Eat a full breakfast.
Give yourself sufficient time
to eat a full breakfast as most
of the energy you got from
previous night's dinner is
used up by morning causing
your blood sugar to be low.
If you plan to exercise within
an hour after breakfast, eat a
smaller amount or drink
something to raise your
blood sugar, such as a sports
drink.
Time your meals. Eat
large meals at least three to
four hours and small meals
two to three hours before
exercising. Most people can
eat snacks right before and
during exercise. The key is
how you feel. Some people
-may feel lightheaded during
the first 10-15 minutes of
their workout if they eat
within the hour before exer-
cise. Do what works best for
you.
Don't skip meals.
Skipping meals may cause
low blood sugar, which can
make you feel weak and
lightheaded. If you're short
on time before your workout
and your choice is candy or
nothing, eat the candy
because it can improve your
performance, compared with
eating nothing. But keep in
mind, all candy is high in
sugar and low on nutrients,
so a snack of yogurt and a
banana would be a better
choice.
Eat after a workout. To
help your muscles recover
and to replace their glycogen
stores, eat a meal that con-
tains both protein and carbo-
hydrates within two hours of
your exercise session.
What to eat: Getting the
right fuel for your best per-
formance. Food provides
your body with necessary
energy. To make the most of
your workouts, focus on:
Carbohydrates: Your
body's chief source of fuel.
You'll feel better when you
exercise if you eat foods high
in carbohydrates and low in
fat. Your body stores excess
carbohydrates as glycogen
primarily in your muscles
and liver. Your muscles use
stored glycogen when needed
for energy.
Cereals, breads, vegeta-
bles, pasta, rice and fruit are
good sources of carbohy-
drates. But right before an
intense workout, avoid car-
bohydrates high in fiber, such
as beans and lentils, bran
cereals and fruit. High fiber
foods may give you gas or
cause cramping. Fructose, a
simple sugar found in fruit,


can increase the tendency for
diarrhea with high intensity
exercise.
If you don't like to eat
solid foods before exercising,
drink your carbohydrates in
sports beverages or fruit
juices. Research shows that it
makes no difference in per-
formance whether you drink

drates allows your body to

Proteins and fats:
Important, but not your
body's top fuel source.
Protein isn't your body's
food of choice for fueling
exercise, but it does play a
role in muscle repair and
growth. Most people can eas-
ily get the protein they need
from such foods as meat,
dairy products and nuts and
don't need additional protein
supplements.
Fat is an important,
although smaller, part of your
diet. Fats, as well as carb6-
hydrates, can provide fuel for
your muscles during exer-
cise. Try to get most of your
fat from unsaturated sources
such as nuts, fatty fish or
vegetable oils. Avoid fatty
foods just before exercising
as they remain in your stom-
ach longer due to slow diges-
tion, causing you to feel less
comfortable.
Water: Drink plenty to
avoid dehydration. Your body
uses the water in your blood
to carry nutrients such as
sugar (glucose) to cells and
to remove waste products
from the cells. The presence
of water in your body
ensures that you can safely
sustain physical activity.
As you exercise, your
body produces heat. This
heat leaves your body as you
perspire, taking with it elec-
trolytes elements such as
potassium, calcium, sodium
and chlorine. If you don't
replace the fluid you lose
during exercise, your heart
rate increases and your tem-
perature rises, putting you at
risk of dehydration as well as
compromising your workout.
To stay well hydrated dur-
ing exercise, the American
College of Sports Medicine
recommends that you drink
eight glasses of water every
day and more on days when
the temperature and humidity
are high. Drink at least one
glass of water before and
after your workout and every
10-15 minutes during your
workout to replace fluid lost
in perspiration. Avoid substi-
tuting coffee, tea or soda for
water, because they often
contain caffeine, which acts
as a diuretic that causes your
body to even lose more.
water. Also avoid ice cold
liquids as they do not move
through your stomach as fast
as cool or room temperature
liquids.
Water is usually the best
way to replace fluids, unless
your exercising for more than
'60 minutes. In that case, use
a sports drink to help main-
tain your electrolyte balance
and give you a bit more ener-
gy from the carbohydrates.
The sodium in sports drinks
also helps you rehydrate
more quickly. In order to
avoid a full, uncomfortable
stomach, it is recommended
that you sip instead of drink
an entire bottle at once.
Signs and symptoms of
dehydration may include:
thirst, fatigue, loss of coordi-
nation, mental confusion,
irritability, dry skin, elevated
body temperature and/or
diminished urine output.
Let experience beyour

ing, drinking and exercise,
everyone is different. So pay
attention to how you feel
during your workout and
your overall performance.

which pre-, during and post-

habits work best for you.

Question: I have severe allergies and
asthma and they seem to get worse in
the fall. I take Advair, Zyrtec and use an
albuterol inhaler. Breathing should not
be such a chore. How can I get perma-
nently well?
G.D., Albahy, N.Y.
Answer: Asthma attacks are frighten-
ing because you never know what will
trigger an attack of coughing, wheezing,
chest pain and shortness of breath.
Naturally, most people associate aller-
gies and asthma as a problem of the
lungs, but I think differently.
We know for sure that allergies are a
reflection of your immune system going
haywire, and your immune cells live
primarily in the GI tract yes, the gut
- so breathing problems could begin
there, and many researchers agree with
me. A diet void of fiber and nutrition,
consisting mainly of white flour, sweets,
dairy and fried foods will cause the
overgrowth of yeast in the gut, called
Candida albicans. It takes. over, destroy-
ing healthy microflora (probiotics)
which you need for healthy immune
function. As for dairy, it contains
"casein," which has been tied to aller-
gies and asthma, and going off dairy
seems to offer relief for many chronic
sufferers.
Regulatory T-cells are immune cells
which live in your gut and help you. In
the face of fast food, casein, Candida

and antibiotics, your T-cells' tolerance
goes down and they become annoyed
easily. Then ,when you exercise, take
aspirin salicylatess), inhale a common
allergen (like pollen, pollution, dust par-
ticles, mold spores or animal dander), or
are exposed to irritants (detergents,
cleansers, perfumes or chemicals), tiny
microscopic hairs along the respiratory
tract grab hold of these substances and
wash some of them into your GI tract.
There, your T-cells, poised like soldiers,
go nuts and send out a message to the
lungs that says, "Attack! We're under
assault!" The whole cascade of breath-
ing misery begins.
Contrarily, T-cells that live in a
healthy gut build up a tolerance and
allow common allergens to fly under the
radar as no big deal. This is why perma-
nent healing starts with what you eat.
Prescribed medications save lives, but
they're tricky. They should be used as


part of your bigger plan. You said you
take Advair, a popular combination drug
containing a steroid (fluticasone) to
reduce inflammation, and a long-acting
bronchodilator (salmeterol) to open air-
ways. Albuterol also opens up airways
and works quickly. Zyrtec is an antihis-
tamine used to dry you up. Other meds
employed include Singular, Clarinex,
Flonase, Xopenex and Atrovent.
Consider these options: Quercetin
(found in green tea, berries, grapes and
apples), which acts like an antihista-
mine, and reduces inflammation, and
NAC (N-acetylcysteine), which helps
thin mucous. Also, vitamin B6, magne-
sium and vitamin C. Obviously, gut
repair is crucial to permanent health, so
take "probiotics" which offset intestinal
yeast overgrowth and digestive enzymes
and/or acids which help you break down
foods.

Did you know?
Ibuprofen. is a "drug mugger" of folic
acid, so supplement if you take this
medication long-term. You need folic
acid for good mood, heart health and to
reduce the risk of cancer.

Stroke, osteoporosis
screening set Oct. 8.
SEBRING Residents
living in and around the
Sebring community can be
screened to reduce their risk
of having a stroke. Life Line
screening will be at First
United Methodist Church on
Monday. The site is at 120 S.

You love your dog...
But you sure don't love having to
clean the mess in your yard. You have
better things to do with your time!

IT HAS TO BE DONE...
Left to accumulate, dog waste ruins the appear-
ance of your property, attracts disease-carrying
pests, and offends the neighbors not to men-
tion endangering the health of your pet and
your family. Somebody has to do it, but that
"somebody" doesn't have to be you!

Lady Dragons can't solve Cowgirls


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID -
Atonement was the mindset
Monday night, and for a
time it looked like it might
be acheived.
LaBelle

15,25,25,18,15

Lake Placid

25,23,18,25,12

But in trying to avenge
their one regular season
loss, the Lady Dragons
could only manage a close
call, falling for the second
time this season to the
Cowgirls of LaBelle.
"The girls were really
excited to play this game,"
head coach Marilyn Jones
said. "They really wanted to
take this one and make up
for our loss to them."
They certainly came out
of the gates with something
to prove.
Holding a steady, though
narrow lead throughout the
opening contest, Lake
Placid broke it open with a
12-10 lead.
A 12-point run suddenly
ballooned the lead to 22-10
before LaBelle made a bit of
a comeback.
But there was no stopping
the Dragons now, as they
squashed any comeback
hope by finishing out the
25-15 win.
The Cowgirls jumped out
of the chute in the second
game, getting as, much as a
9-3 lead on the hosts before
Lake Placid started on the
comeback trail.
The Lady Dragons went
on a 9-3 run of their own to
tie it at 12, the first of six
knotted scores for the game.
Down 22-19, Lake Placid
got to within 24-23 before
LaBelle scored the clincher
to knot the match up a game
' apiece.
LaBelle would jump out
to early leads in each of the

was a tight one, with LaBelle serving up Lake Placid's
second regular season loss.


next two contests, with the
'gals in green' fighting their
way back both times.
The first time, in the third
game, they would come up
short in a 25-18 loss.
But the second time,. in
the fourth game, Lake
Placid was looking up a t a
16-9 deficit, only to lasso
the Cowvgirls and reel them
in to the tune of a 16-2 run
to win going away, 25-18.
That set the stage for the
tie-breaking, up-to-15, fifth
game where the Lady
Dragons final comeback


would come up short.
Down 10-6, the fought
their way back to within 11-
10 before LaBelle put it
away with a final run for a
15-12 win.
"They really play well
against us and we have a
tough time with their quick
sets," Jones said of the
Cowgirls' pet play of spik-
ing the set on the way up
instead of leaping to hit it
on the way down. "You
don't see that with many
teams so it's kind of hard to

VBALL
Continued from 1D
prepare for that.
"Kristen (Massung) and
Brittany (Baldwin) played
really well for us tonight,"
she continued. "I hope this is


a good learning experience
for us, to know that we have
to play together to beat
tougher teams. In the big pic-
ture, this match wasn't that
important. Now Frostproof,
that's a big match for us. It's a
district game and they are a


good team that really plays
well at home."
The Lady Dragons were in
Frostproof Tuesday night
before coming back home for
another district test Thursday,
when they will meet
Mulberry.

Playoff fever should be a hot October


The playoffs are upon us,
starting tonight, and if the
lead-in to the postseason was
any indication, this should be
a doozy.
The fact that there needed
to be a tie-breaking game just
to see which team would win
the wild card
And then that play-in game
going 13 innings, with San
Diego scoring two in the top
of the inning only to see their
Hall-of-Fame closer lose it
by giving up three in the bot-
tom of the frame.
This season overall, how it
ended up playing out kind of
gives the feel that this
October run should be a wild
one.
Pennant races weren't
solved until the final week-
end and the playoff matchups
look as even as can be.
Granted, each of the
American League representa-
tives seems stronger than
their Senior Circuit counter-
parts but we won't have to
worry about that until later.
In the meantime, those
stronger AL teams will be
facing one another, and they
all look pretty evenly
matched overall.
Ditto in the National
League, where any one team
that comes out of it wouldn't
really be a surprise.
Of course, the matchup
everyone looks forward to,
especially the folks over at
TBS, is the Yankees and Red
Sox.
But before those two meet,
they each have their hands
full the Yanks with
Cleveland and the Sawx with
the Angels.
The Indians, with Cy
Young candidate C.C.
Sabathia and second year
phenom Fausto Carmona,
each with 19 wins, could
pose a threat to the brutally
stacked New York lineup.
Conversely, L.A., which
has a nice one-two punch at
the top of it's pitching staff,


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
John Lackey (19 wins) and
Kelvim Escobar (18 wins),
has seen Lackey roughed up
by Boston and Escobar strug-
gle down the stretch.
But a versatile and deep
Angel lineup could give trou-
ble to the Sox' Josh Beckett
(20 wins) and Daisuke
Matsuzaka (15 wins).
Although Boston's rotation
goes deeper than most, with
17-game winner Tim
Wakefield,' and the ever lurk-
ing Curt Schilling.
You know the TV execs
are petrified of a Cleveland-
Angels matchup in the
American League
Championship series since A)
neither team has much of a
national following, and B)
half the games would be tele-
vised in California, meaning
anybody east of the
Mississippi will be asleep by
the fourth inning.
In the National League, we
have Colorado meeting
Philadelphia, to patent
offenses without any real
dazzling pitching to speak of.
The Phillies staff ranked
13th out of 16 in the league,
with Colorado eighth.
And if they weren't keep-
ing the balls in a humidor at
Coors Field, I think you'd
see them closer in pitching
rank to the Phils.
Offensively, Colorado has
the highest average in the
league to go with 169 home
runs, while Philadelphia
fifth, and has 213 long balls.
The Rockies power num-


bers might also be better, if
not for the aforementioned
humidor, so it seems this one
should be a slugfest.
The biggest conundrum of
these playoffs are the
Arizona Diamondbacks -
who come in with the best
record in the National
League.
Their offense is dead-last
in batting average, a team-
mark of .250, and as a team
they were outscored by their
opponents, 732-712, over the
course of the season.
Their leading home run
hitter batted .237 and had
only 68 RBI to go with his
32 dingers, and their leading
RBI guy would have needed
another month of the season
to reach 100.
Sure, it helps that their
pitching staff has the fourth-
best ERA in the league, but
they had one pitcher win 18
games, and nobody else real-
ly much above .500 among
the regular starters.
Brandon Webb went 18-12,
but then you see a 13-12
mark, an 11-11 and an 8-8.
And of course, as crazy as
that all sounds for a team that
finished 18 games over .500,
it makes all the sense in the
world considering who their
first round matchup is
against.
A team that I can't talk
about.
You know, the team with
the 98-year World Series vic-
tory drought, with a top start-
ing pitcher was booed in his
home park one month ago
and who beat up the catcher
that was then traded.
A team with more jinxes
and curses than you can
shake a billy goat at and a
lead-off hitter with 99 more
strikeouts than walks.
What a series, and postsea-
son overall, this could turn
out to be.
