The Ft

Bees inspire hexagonal
house, bed and breakfast
being built in Lake Placid
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID
I independent of each other, but inspired by
the same natural forces three years ago,
two men came to Highlands County to
build their next homes.
Charles H. Scheer is an artist specializing
in architectural design, fine art and decorative
painting! John C. Kiefer is an over-the-road
truck driver.
Both are moving inland and building
uncommon homes to protect themselves from
a common threat hurricanes.
"Right after the 2004 hurricanes, all of
them, I read an article about the strongest
structure there is," Scheer said, sitting on a
deck overlooking Little Lake Grassy. "The
article was about honeybees and honey-
combs."
And hexagons.
Kiefer, who bought an American Ingenuity
dome kit, said triangles are the strongest
shae. The ''mne of his home will be a series
of 6onnectie'triaingle,, whereas the Yaca-
L Domes bull by io..eph 'Yajcboni feature
smooth spherical "roof."
In addition to the hurricane- and earth-
quake-proven reliability of the AI domes,
Kiefer said he was drawn by the low buy-in
his kit is $30,000 for the shell plus what-
ever it'll cost to finish it.

Charles Scheer is in the process of building a hexagon-shaped house in Lake Placid. The
steel-framed roofs (top photo) and hexagon shape make strong, weather-tesistant structures.


Interior finishing is comparable to a stan-
dard home, he said.
Right now, Kiefer is looking for a contrac-
tor to build his kit for him since a recent rota-
tor cuff injury precludes his doing the job
himself. ,
"There was a couple of domes down in
Miami and they survived the hurricanes with
very little damage," he said.
Scheer's "hex house" is about six months
from completion. The concrete block walls
are up and the roofs are partially completed.


Viewed from above, the six-pod house
looks like a honeycomb in the making.
Though unique in design, Scheer is more
proud of the fauna surrounding is future
home than the house itself.
' "I spent every weekend for five years
planting trees," he said.
The trees total 4,500, which he said is no
exaggeration. Walking onto his wedge-shaped
parcel feels like stepping into a mini subtrop-

'Yaca-Domes' dot county

Joseph and Carmel Yacaboni sit in front of the Lake Placid dome home.
Joseph Yacaboni built 18 'Yaca-Domes' in the county since the 1970s and
several more throughout the country. Due to financial constraints, he fin-
ished this home in wood siding and asphalt shingles instead of the cement
board use on the other domes he built.

LAKE PLACID

27, near Tauchens
Road, there's a curious
white, dome structure.
There's also one across the
street from Avon Park High
School, several scattered
throughout Lake Placid and a
few in Sebring.
Though they're not the
design of choice in Highlands
County, some 18 "Yaca-
Domes" were built here
through the years, beginning
in the early 1970s.
"We wanted to come into
Lake Placid and have assem-
bly line homes," said Carmel
Yacaboni, Joseph's wife of 55
years, as the couple discussed
the merits of a building they


claim to be one-third less
expansive yet stronger than a
concrete block home.
Joseph built his first dome
in Pittsburgh, Pa., for them-
selves. He designed it,
researched it and built it
(mostly) by himself.
A landscape engineer by
trade, he's an inventor and
problem solver at heart.
"In Pittsburgh, it was a one-
time thing," Carmel said. "It
was ours."
When the newspapers got
wind of their strong-wind
resistant home, interest grew
in Joseph's Yaca-Dome. But
they moved to Lake Placid
after Carmel's battle with can-
cer.
They were sure the dome

WAUCHULA It's been a
busy month at the Hardee

First was the Michael

month ago. And now, the trial


of former Zolfo Springs

Scheid is charged with two
counts of official misconduct
and one count apiece of grand

with a witness or victim, and
tampering with or fabricating
physical evidence. Scheid is

Contract would

give Highlanls

teachers raises

Experienced teachers would
benefit most from new deal,
which still has to be approved
By TREY CHRISTY
trey,christy@newssun.com
Nearly $3.5 million has been set aside
for teacher salaries for an 18 month period
starting in December.
A tentative agreement reached by the
Highlands County Education Association
and the School Board of Highlands County
is roughly a 9 percent pay raise.
Salaries for teachers with high levels of
experience were raised the most, what
HCEA President Steve Picklesimer called
showing those teachers more "respect."
"The biggest problem was the steps. Our
most experienced teachers are paid well
below the state average," he said.
"We focused a lot on the experienced
teachers ,- those that are giving their
careers to Highlands County need that
respect."
Roughly one 'We

from $37,900 to pe
$42,000 for 10

and $44,050 to PICKLESIMER
$50,000 for 14 HCEA president
years experience.
The 18-month tentative agreement
hinges on the approval by those it benefits:
the district's teachers.
The voting will take place on Nov. 2 at
each school.
"The way it works is it goes up for rati-
fication, all those represented under the
bargaining union have a vote, with the
simple majority winning," Picklesimer
said.
Teachers are welcome to attend the local
meetings, whether or not they are mem-
bers of the union, held in each city.
Avon Park's meeting will be held
Wednesday, Oct. 17, followed by Oct. 22
in Lake Placid and finally in Sebring Oct.
24.
"We try to limit 'it to members, but
teachers are welcome to come and ask
questions and make comments,"
Picklesimer said. "The negotiation teans
and members will be there to answer ques-
tions."

counties Denise Benavides said of
the county's track record.
Only five of the coveted Cups are
awarded each year. Highlands' vol-
unteers received the award Sept. 7 in
Orlando, during a kick-off banquet.
Benavides said the trophy signi-
fies that the county had the largest
increase in disposable income
raised, meaning more money could
be put toward the American Cancer
Society's mission than to overhead.


The most visible and successful
fundraisers for the non-profit organ-
ization are the annual Relays For
Life. Highlands County hosts three
- one in each city, town and
Hardee has its in Wauchula.
The relays, an overnight walking
event with entertainment, food and
cancer education, are held in 4,600
U.S. communities and 20 countries.
"Relays are community owned
and run," Benavides said, explaining


each is personalized for the people it
serves.
In the coming year, about 700 new
cancer patients will be identified in
Highlands County alone, she said.
Of those, 300 will die.
"It's not all doom and gloom,"
Benavides said, explaining the can-
cer society's mission is to reach at
least 160 of the patients.
From there, they educate the
patients about health care, introduce


them to other patients and expose
them to the survivors.
By 2015, the goal is to reduce can-
cer incidents by 25 percent, infant
mortality by 50 percent and "meas-
urably improve the quality of life" of
cancer patients.
"We're always looking for more
volunteers," Benavides said.

www.cancer.org or call Benavides at
(800) 227-2345.


Controlled burns planned


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Southwest Florida Water
Management District will be
conducting controlled, pre-

mile west of U.S. 27, three
miles south of State Road 66


and six miles northwest of
Lake Placid.
There is the potential to
bur more than 200 acres of
land in small, manageable

His body was found a
month later in a shallow
grave. He had been tortured.
His death at 37, leaving a
young family behind, moved
people to action.
Originally, his family and
friends wore red ribbons to
remember and honor him.
Later, when the movement
took off and became national
in scope, the red ribbons grew
to mean a commitment
against drugs as well.
In 1988 the U..S. Congress
and President Ronald Reagan
proclaimed the initial event.
Now, almost 20 years later,
especially in the elementary
schools, the message is as


much about remembering to
enjoy the good things in life
Sas it is to say no to drugs.
Each day of Red Ribbon
Week has a theme and a
chance for students to have a
little fun in the name of a
good cause.
It all starts Saturday with
the Red Ribbon Run at Avon
Park High School's football
field. So far there have been
about 800 registrations,
Sherry' Koehler-Harter, an
organizer, said, about half of
them students.
Adults, for a $5 entrance
fee, run at 7 a.m.
Student races begin with
kindergarten participants at 8
a.m. There is no charge for
children to run.
Individuals may register on
the day of the race, Koehler-
Harter, said. However, people
who come at the last minute
can't be guaranteed they will
get a T-shirt.
The main events of the
week occur in the schools.
There will be a door deco-
ration contest, with a prize for
the best in every school.
In addition to the county-
wide themes, each school,
and even individual classes,
are getting to do their own
special events. For example,
Avon Elementary School
always has a music assembly.
For more information call
the individual school for the
particulars of their plans.

and Margarita Marrero saw the whole thing from just behind
Gonzalez's vehicle. "I don't think she saw him," he said.
"She pulled out of Skipper road (traveling east) and tried to
cross southbound traffic to head north on 27." His wife
added "He was 25 feet or less from her when she pulled
out." Hall's failure to yield sent Gonzalez's vehicle into the
median and over a yield sign, appropriately placed but
ignored in this instance. Gonzalez sustained no injuries,
although his vehicle sustained an estimated $10,000. Hall
sustained serious injuries and was transported to Highlands
Regional Medical Center. Her passenger, husband Leonard.
Hall, 85, sustained only minor injuries.

where hurricanes are as
expected as the annual migra-
tion of snowbirds.
"We left a sure thing to
come to this little bitty
town," she said, but the
domes never caught on.
Joseph built different ver-
sions of the dome, experi-
menting with materials and
learning from successive
projects in several states.
"Everybody was afraid to
put their stamp on it,"
Carmel said, recalling battles
with building commissions
across the country.
"Anything round is
stronger than something
square," Joe said, happy to
share the stories behind near-
ly a dozen U.S. patents dis-
played bn the short hallway
connecting the two domes
constituting the Yacaboni's
approximately 1,400 "round"
feet home.
Unlike the rest of the Yaca-
Domes he built in the county,
their house on Holmes
Avenue can easily be mistak-
en for a normal house with
its wood siding and asphalt
shingles, a cost-cutting meas-
ure he resorted to when they
were having trouble securing
financing.
To hear the Yacabonis tell
their story, Joseph's creativi-
ty from a dome communi-
ty to massive mobile home
springs to allow some move-
ment during storms wasn't
matched with marketing and
business savvy.
Several partnerships
opportunities with potential
to turn his dream into a
viable business fell through,
in part due to an attorney
who encouraged the couple
to seek a bigger slice of the
pie than what was being
offered.

In the end, Joseph ended
up building the domes one by
one as buyers came along.
"He educated a lot of peo-
ple," Carmel said of her hus-
band. "We didn't get rich, but
we have met the most won-
derful people from all over
the place."
The unit at Tauchens Road
on U.S. 27 served as an
office for them, in its heyday
drawing 300 visitors a week-
end.
The office dome is a two-
bedroom, two-bath home
with a living, dining and util-
ity rooms and a loft.
It's about 1,200 square
feet, but the first domes
Joseph built were smaller.
Carmel said they wondered
what had happened to the
500- 600-square-foot homes
common in Florida. By the
mid-1970's, homes had

of potential homeowners, she
said.
"Joe said, 'I've got to
build something smaller the
kids can afford,'" Carmel
said.
Before the expansion, the
Yacabonis' current home was
a 700-square-foot dome,
home to a family of three
with two bedrooms, a bath, a
smallish kitchen and a liv-
ing/dining area.
Inside the home, dividing
walls square off the spaces.
It's easy to forget the house
is round, until one gazes
upward.
A similarly sized dome

small connecting hallway

able space. Voices echo in

"You can't see the house
from any street," Scheer
bragged of the property nes-
tled between Kelsey Road,
U.S. 27 and Little Lake
Grassy. "You can barely see
it from the lake."
Of the six pods, four will
be his personal residence.
The two pods, 30-feet diame-
ter each, on either side of his
home will each be a bed and
breakfast if he secures the
appropriate rezoning.
Up the driveway, he's
building a guesthouse, which
will be a third bed and break-
fast unit.
"I've never seen one
before," Scheer said, when
asked about the uniqueness
of his design.
An Internet search reveals
hex houses aren't common-
place, and their construction
varies in design, material and
purpose.
Not a fan of bar stools and
tables, Scheer sought an

Department of Law
Enforcement.
A litany of allegations were
made against Scheid that
resulted in his arrest.
According to the arrest affi-
davit, Scheid allegedly took a
gun from evidence storage
and then, under threat of
arrest, made a police clerk
falsify the gun records.
Scheid was also accused of
stealing a gold coin from
Rooster's Restaurant while
investigating a burglary on
the premises.
Scheid was fired as police
chief in May 2006, four
months after the charges were
filed. He then appealed his
firing to the Zolfo Springs
Town Council and lost by a
slim 3-2 margin.
A plea deal was reached in
the case last November, but
was thrown out by the judge.
The two sides couldn't come
up with a new deal, putting

Inside his part of the
dwelling, a sunken hex-
shaped kitchen will be 16
inches lower than the main
floor, allowing guests to sit
at a normal table while being
eye-level with the chef.
The hex house and bed and
breakfasts are windowless,
Scheer pointed out. Together,
the pods feature 30 French
doors with two-feet by six-
feet thermal pane glass. They
all open onto Little Lake
Grassy and their respective

the trial back on the docket.
Scheid's trial was original-
ly scheduled for late
September, but was continued
after a motion from the
defense. The original trial
date also fell on the week
after the Branham trial's con-
clusion, providing another
reason for rescheduling.
The motion for continuance
was granted a mere two days
after Branham was found
guilty. But unlike the
Branham case, Hardee
County Clerk of Courts Hugh
Bradley said that the Scheid
trial won't be quite as much
of a spectacle.
"Branham was a unique
trial, significantly higher-pro-
file in its nature and in the
charges," Bradley said.
While more than 200 jury
summonses were sent out for
the Branham case, the Scheid
trial will require only a frac-
tion of that number. Bradley
said he doesn't foresee any
jury selection issues.
"I've never found it diffi-
cult to find a jury in Hardee
County," he said.

Want a 'Paw-sitively Perfect Puppy? Take this class to learn how


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK Precious petite
puppies paws prancing, perfectly
performing.
That's the goal of Saunders
Veterinary Services Paw-sitively
Perfect Puppies classes, accepting
those sweet little chewers and pee-
ers into a class so they will behave
better in their adult doggy lives.
Jennifer Simpson will teach the
class, bringing her DOGS! training
experience to the table a course
she took at Purdue University.
"It helps your dog to become


accustomed to different situations,
so when they are older they don't
tend to be scared of different situa-
tions," she said of the socialization
classes.
The weekly classes will begin
soon at the Avon Park veterinary
clinic, 2801 US 27 S.
They will be held Thursdays at 7
p.m., with different themes for the
four different nights.
Simpson gave the example of
wheels and sounds for one nights
theme. The youngsters will be
exposed to toys that move on
wheels, toy trucks, strollers and pos-


sibly a wheelchair to get them used
to these objects and help them to
understand they are not scary, she
said.
"So later in life if they are passed
by someone in a wheelchair they
don't get scared or bite it," Simpson
said.
"We are teaching them the world
is not such a scary place so you will
have less problems later in life with
them being scared or acting out."
The socialization classes are open
to any puppy, any breed, but puppies
need to be between the ages of 8 and
16 weeks.


"Anything older and you're not in
the socialization period anymore,"
she said. "They would be adoles-
cents, and learn a different way."
Saunders Veterinary Services had
the idea of hosting the classes when
they noticed an abundance of train-
ing classes, but nothing along the
lines of socialization.
Taking the important first step in
making a pooch a well behaved one
will cost $135 for the four week
class and include a training guide,
training kit with handouts and every-
thing associated with the class.
Orientation is required, and will


be held twice a month on Tuesday
nights. At the orientation children
and puppies are preferred to be left
at home.
The Thursday night classes are
expected to last about an hour and a
half.
Puppies need to come with docu-
mentation stating they had their first
round of shots.
For additional information or to
register for the class contact
Saunders Veterinary Services at 453-
5700.

advanced, more directed
instruction was needed. A
group of parents pulled away
from the YMCA and Get A
Grip was opened.
Now Robinson says, the
YMCA acts as a feeder pro-
gram for Get A Grip.
But mainly, Robinson said,
the YMCA is a place for
young people to go who just
want to have fun toning their
muscles, while getting more
in tune with their bodies.
For those children who
thrive on competition, Get A
Grip takes a more focused,
serious approach, preparing
its students for competition
with additional toning exer-
cises and running. The pace
at Get A Grip is faster too.
Gymnastics is divided sev-
eral ways. Up and down in
the sense of age brackets and
skill levels. Then side by
side, with different competi-
tions on different kinds of
equipment.
Girls have to become pro-
ficient on the vault, uneven
bars, balance beam, and floor
exercises.
There are levels of ability,
one through 10, with 10
being an Olympian or profes-
sional level.
While GetA Griphas, a
pre-school program like the


YMCA, it looks for level
three and higher athletes
interested in competing.
Gymnasts compete against
themselves in the sense of
improving performances. But
individuals also join together
and compete as teams.
Coaches typically are for-
mer gymnasts and most train-
ing is on the job. They work
with small groups at a time.
This is partly for safety rea-
sons, partly for practical
ones.
Of course the work is very
physical, especially when
working with the smallest
children who need to have
helping hands and backs.
At the Y, I avoided the
exercises, and tried for a
tumbling run instead.
That means I did two som-
ersaults, almost in a row. And
I tried to lift myself up into a
croquet wicket type of posi-
tion. I mean, on my back,
knees bent, my feet flat on
the floor, I reached my arms
back, over my shoulders to
about my ears, where with
wrists turned so my palms
were also laid flat on the
floor, I tried to push my body
up using my hands and feet.
Now I walk three dogs at
least three times a day, so my
leg muscles are in pretty
good shape. I could get the
bottom half of me lifted off
the floor and into the air.
But it turns out I have no

upper body strength, and no
matter how hard I pushed (as
hard as someone can push
when their hands are turned
the wrong way and are up by
their head) I couldn't get my


upper body to budge an inch.
Not even when I cheated a
little and tried to push against
the floor with the top of my
head.
I did, however, learn


another oxymoron pain-
less exercise. By the end of
each evening, I was limping
away. And once I heard

Really taxing the


virtual world

In 1998, with the computer age taking off, the U.S.
Congress passed the Internet Tax Freedom'*Act,
specifically prohibiting state and local governments
from taxing access to the Internet, or imposing multi-
ple or discriminatory taxes on electronic commerce.
This means the act prohibited taxes on all methods
of access, including dial-up, digital subscriber line,
satellite or wireless. It also ensured that taxes could-
n't be levied on e-mail or instant messaging.
It did not address Internet sales tax issues.
Economists, Internet providers and citizen watch
groups were all agreed that taxes on Internet access
would only slow down technical progress and dis-
courage the kind of investment necessary for America
to remain on the virtual cutting edge.
Supporters of an Internet tax ban said the United
States had to continue encouraging investment in
broadband technology, and that regardless, keeping
the cost of using the Internet to a minimum for all cit-
izens was the obligation of a democracy.
They point to tax bills on telephone service that
sometimes cost more than the service purchased.
Almost everyone involved in the debate agreed that
the issue of Internet connections and use were impor-
tant enough to the entire nation to trump states' rights
and be a truly federal issue.
The Internet, however, was still so new in 1998 that
policy makers were reluctant to set parameters far out
into the future.
Instead, the tax moratorium was approved for peri-
ods of three years at a time. Nine states (Florida not
among them) had already imposed taxes on Internet
access by 1998, and they were allowed to continue
collecting the tax.
The moratorium was continued in 2001 and 2004.
Now it is ready to expire for the third time, on Oct.
31.
This time around, opponents are arguing about
whetherithe moratorium should be made ,ei-rmaerieit.
S In a paper written for the Information Te6hnology
& Innovation Foundation, arguing for permanent tax
protection, David Castro said that a permanent mora-
torium would encourage broadband adoption and
expansion, which in turn would result in greater pro-
ductivity and a drop in transportation costs.
Castro adds for emphasis that even with the tax
moratorium in place for nine years, the United States
has fallen from fourth place in broadband adoption -to
15th place among the 30 members of the Organization
for Economic Cooperation and Development. That
organization includes countries like Australia,
Canada, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Sweden and the
United Kingdom.
Castro writes that there are two competing bills
currently sitting before Congress. One basically
declares the moratorium permanent, and would let
the grandfather clause covering the nine taxing states
to expire over time.
The other proposed legislation creates another four-
year extension of the moratorium, continues to allow
the nine states that tax, and tries to narrow the defini-
tion of "Internet Access" to specifically exclude
video over IP and any other non-incidental services.
State and local government officials are more reluc-
tant to consider permanent, or even long-term mora-
toriums.
With recent large tax cuts, policy makers face mon-
etary shortfalls. In addition, they say, computer tech-
nology is bound to change. To permanently proclaim
a moratorium so early in the science might be a long-
term financial mistake.

Unemployed should
be used for citrus
Editor:
The News-Sun reported that citrus grower
Mason Smoak recently testified before
Congress that, "We don't want to be the guys
on the front line of immigration enforce-
ment." Thank you Mr. Smoak for speaking up
about citrus growers' labor problems.
The fact is, millions of illegal aliens have
been pouring across our borders for decades
and Congress has done little of nothing to
stop the tide flow! These politicians carry on
endless full scale wars all over the globe but
can't protect our own borders?
What our law enforcement agencies should
do is, immediately after these illegal aliens
are caught in the United States breaking our
immigration laws, take them back to the
country from whence they came.
On growers finding labor to pick fruit, we
should use our own unemployed to do the
job. They won't work? Then take them off
the welfare rolls! "If anyone will not work,
neither shall he eat." (See II Thessalonians
3:10).
I am 77 years old and own a citrus grove,
right here with Smoak's and am still picking
my own fruit for more than 38 years. Picking
fruit pays well, if you can move and it's real,
good, healthy work.

Too much spin put on politics
Editor:
Upon hearing a discussion on how badly
the Democrats were handling the current gov-
ernment, I listened to the specific details. I
joined the discussion to remind the speakers
that Republicans had controlled both
Congress and the White House for six years,
that they had made the Democrats look like
pikers in spending, not to mention corruption.
I noted the lies that led to the Iraqi war and
the hundreds of billions ($1 trillion off budg-
et) spent so far. The latest issue was the
Children's S CHIP health bill that President
Bush vetoed. I noted the lie of the Medicare
Prescription Bill that was to cost $400 bil-
lion, but is now over $1 trillion, where the
pharmaceutical, health and insurance corpora-
tions received more than $400 million up
'front and private insurance is now costing
from 50-100 percent more than it did four
years ago. Forty-one days of the Iraqi War
could pay for children's health for one year.
It was when they said that union pensions
were bankrupting corporations that I told .
them that Governor Jeb Bush took $300 mil-
lion each from the teachers and firefighters'
pension funds to buy Enron shares one month
before it went belly up and they said it was
poor judgment that I exclaimed, "B-!" in
exasperation. My language upset them. Just
maybe it was because I caught them on their
flawed logic.


Remember, it was the Republicans who
operated behind closed doors, who caused the
current fiasco these past six years. The gener-
al public is just now learning about it. And! It
was President Ronald Reagan in the '80s who
allowed those corporations to reduce those
pensions and health funds because "they were
excess funds!" Just two years ago, Congress
excused more corporations from their pension
obligations and foisted them onto the taxpay-
ers. Need I mention the corporation raiders
and more billions?
The public had been told numerous times
how careful and focused Gov. Bush was in
making policy and presenting bills to the
Legislature. So when they said that he used
poor judgment in buying Enron stock, that
got to me. Is it not curious that all those peo-
ple "in the know" sold their stock in Enron
before the collapse, that Enron even prevent-
ed its own employees from selling their stock
until it was too late?
For those who came to Florida in the last
30 years, allow me to relate a little history. In
the '60s, the Florida Education Association
had to go to court to form its own pension
fund. Up until then all funds paid by teachers
went into the general fund. Pensions were
allocated on an annual basis for retirees, that
is, no interest was paid on those funds. In 50
years, the teachers and firefighters' pension
funds had grown to more than $100 billion;
still, $600 million is a sizable sum. No one
has been held accountable for that "poor
judgment," just retired teachers, etc., who
paid dearly for it.

Don't forget about the places where everybody knows your name


I don't know how many of you
have visited the new shopping center-
on the corner of U.S. 27 and
Thunderbird Road. Judging from the
parking lot, I'd guess it's a lot of
you.
I admit I like the new shopping
center. The stores there are pretty
neat. I have dreamed of having a
mega-bookstore to prowl locally, and.
Books-A-Million fills that desire to a
T. This means less trips out of town,
and Don has to hide my credit card.
There's also Michael's, which
reminds me I used to.enjoy crafting.


Laura's
Look
Laura Ware
They have enough yarn to get my fin-
gers wanting to grab my crochet hook
again.
Circuit City is fun to wander in. So
is Marshall's. In fact, I could proba-
bly spend a long afternoon wandering
from store to store in this shopping
center, even if Don managed to hide
my credit card.
Someone pointed out that the shop-
ping center resembled those that can


be found in bigger locales such as
Orlando or Lakeland. That isn't nec-
essarily a bad thing the stores are
good ones. I'm sure the area is going
to get a lot of revenue from them.
But as I type this, I am not at the
shopping center. Nor am I at home.
In fact, as I type this I can see the
shopping center through the windows
of Brewster's Coffee House, where I
sit with my.laptop.;earphones on and
tuning into Rush Limbaugh as I
work.
Brewster's is a kind of a different
place. For one thing, it is located on a


property that used to be a gas station.
The pumps are gone, but the small
island that held them is still there.
Inside, the place is carpeted and
has tables scattered throughout. For
the geeks like me, there are outlets to
plug in your electronics and free
wireless to check your e-mail or lis-
ten to programs online.
Coffee and lattes of all types are
available. The special is a Brewster's
mocha, made of white chocolate and
caramel that is tasty. But they have

'I might


need that


some day'

We have a saying in my
family, that probably origi-
nated with my dad. It goes,
"Hang on to that, I might
need that someday."
It seems that my life is
chocked full of stuff that I
might need someday. Most
of the things aren't really
worth saving, but I can't
bring myself to throw them
away.
Oh, there are some really
important things we have to
keep. Tax returns, legal
documents and such. But
we keep those in a separate
place, mostly kept by my
wife.
I find it easier to give the
really important things to
my wife. She is very organ-
ized. She always knows
where my socks and under-
wear are.
I have a basket that
belongs just to me where I
keep important notes,
receipts and doctor appoint-
ments. I fill the basket, and
then every so often my wife
collects the whole mess and
sorts it out. Very efficient
system, but I find that once
I put them in the basket, I
never look at, them again. ,-
If I do:haye, something.
special that I need to really
remember, my wife puts it
on the calendar in our
kitchen. I never look at that
either.
The other day my wife
reminded me that we have a
friend coming in to visit
from out of state; it's on the
calendar don't ya know.
And like a good host, my
wife asked me to clean up
my office a little. Sounded
reasonable.
Looking under my desk,
I have one of those card-
board banker boxes. At the
time, I am sure that all the
papers I put in there were
important, but actually I
filled it with papers that I
never look at. I moved it to
my shed. I really don't
know what's in there, but it
is probably still important.
I went to move some of
the stuff off my desk into a
drawer, and discovered that
I made several files in my
handy little filing drawer;
in order to separate oh, say
ideas on stories from e-
mails from old classmates
during our last reunion. It
has 18 colorful hanging
folders for different kinds
of papers, but I forget what
the difference is. There is
even one folder that has the
file folder labels in it.
Writable CDROMS are a
great idea. They store easy 1
and are stackable. I keep a
couple hundred of the blank
ones on hand just in case. I
like to be on the forefront
of most technological
advances. So, I have lots of -
discs now filled with stuff
I've written or software that
is very important. I never
look at any of them, and I
didn't label them either it
seems. They are here
though. Ready when I am.
It's hard to know how
much of your life you
ought to try and save, and
which parts you really need
to throw away. Maybe it's


just better to say "I'll hang
on to that, I might need that
someday."

If you are struggling to lose
weight, they will do their
best to tweak your drink so
you can feel less guilty
drinking it.
If you don't have a lot of
time, they even have a drive-
thru. I have used it on occa-
sion while on the road. It's a
nice treat for me that I can
find all kinds of occasions to
indulge in.
But one of the nicest
things here is that the people
here have gotten to know
me. Bruce, the boss man,
remembers my name and the
fact I am a writer. When I
started visiting here, he made
sure I was set up OK. He
says hi. They know I like
whipped cream on my drink.
Why am I telling you all
this?
Growth is a part of every-
thing. That includes commu-
nities. I am nof sorry we
have the new shopping cen-
ter. I'm not sorry more peo-
ple are moving here. Like it
or not, a community is either
growing or declining, and
given that choice I'm for
growth.
But I'm not for losing
what makes Highlands
County the great place we
are. Brewster's is a symbol
of that a small town shop
where people know your
name and give you personal
service. A place you can
spend time working, reading,
or just taking a break.
Enjoy the shopping center.
It's a nice one. But don't for-
get the businesses like
Brewster's, that help make
our area the wonderful place
it is. And if you see a short
dark-haired crazy lady typing
on her laptop there, go ahead
and say hi.

Just 10 steps closer to the real world


This week marks the 20th
year of my existence and I
am not as thrilled about it as
I thought I would be 10 years
ago. Back then I could not
wait to be 20, and I knew
exactly where I wanted to be
when I made it this far.
Now that I have finally
made it here, I am both
amazed and disappointed. I
am amazed because I have
been blessed to experience
more in my lifetime than
many people twice my age.
I have graduated from
high school, been around the
world, met many celebrities,
and now I am in college. I
am living the dream of
countless people and I am
very fortunate for those
experiences, but there is
something not right about it.
I am disappointed because
I feel like I have already
accomplished so much, but
now that I am no longer a
teenager I have to step my
game up. I have to work


On My Mind
Georgia Dawkins


harder and think smarter.
I feel like everything I
have done is in vain because
I did it all as a teenager. It's
like I am 10 steps closer to
the real world. I graduate in
three years but I no longer
have my youth on my side.
Stepping out of my teens, I
feel like so much more will
be required of me. All that I
did before was bonus but
now it is expected. I wish I
could have remained a
teenager for just a few years


longer.
Teenagers get so many
leniencies and that is some-
thing I took advantage of.
Things are different now. I
am afraid to be silly and play
as if I were 12 years old.
People are watching me even
closer because now I am an
adult. It did not mean any-
thing to me to turn 18, and
19 was just fun. Being 20 is
a different ball game.
I wonder if I will ever look
at Mickey Mouse the same
again. I guess gummy worms
and slushies are off limits
and I can forget about letting
my cookies dissolve in my
milk and eating them with a
spoon. It is time for me to
officially say goodbye to my
childhood. Nature is forcing
me to grow -up, take respon-
sibility for everything I do,
and never have fun again.

October is Domestic

Violence Awareness Month


October brings beautiful
fall foliage, cooler weather,"
peak shopping season in
anticipation of the upcoming
holidays. It's also the time of
year when we bring aware-
ness to an important issues
affecting family lives.
October is commemorated
as National Domestic
Violence Awareness Month.
People affected by domestic
violence have to fight for
their lives in order to sur-
vive. They require medical
and psychological attention.
They require support, under-
standing and love.
In an effort to combat
domestic violence, 700
Marshall's stores nationwide
will be participating. For
every pair of shoes purchased
during Oct. 14-24, $1 will be
donated to the Family
Violence Prevention Fund.
The money will be used to
"support efforts to prevent
violence against women and
to raise awareness."
In his domestic violence
awareness message President
George Bush said: "Families
are indispensable to a stable
society, and they should be a
place of support to instill
responsibility and values in
the next generation.
S"When a family member is
abused, it can have long-term
damaging effects on the vic-
tim that leave a mark on fam-
ily, friends, and the commu-
nity at large. Our society
must continue to work-to pre-
vent domestic violence and
help create a loving and sta-
ble environment for our chil-
dren and grandchildren.
"National Domestic
Violence Awareness Month is
an opportunity to renew our
commitment to preventing
domestic violence and to
assisting those who suffer
from its devastating effects.
My administration is dedicat-
ed to helping victims of
Domestic violence: The
Family Justice Center
Initiative, announced in


A


2003, continues to work
towards eradicating domestic
violence in our nation. This
program provides assistance
and services for victims of
domestic violence by bring-
ing professionals, advocates,
law enforcement, and organi-
zations together at centers
nationwide.
"In 2006, I signed legisla-
tion that reauthorized the
Violence Against Women Act
to fight domestic violence,
dating violence, sexual
assault, and stalking. We also
are working with faith-based
and community organizations
to assist victims in need. In
addition, the Department of
Justice's Domestic Violence
Transitional Housing
Assistance Program provides
access to transitional housing
services while working to
move victims of violence
into permanent housing.
"As we observe National
Domestic Violence
Awareness Month, we under-
score our commitment to
building an America where
all citizens can live with dig-
nity, work productively, and
achieve their dreams. We
encourage victims and their
families and friends to seek
assistance through Family
Justice Centers and to con-
tact the National Domestic
Violence Hotline at 1-800-
799-SAFE. Together, we can
help prevent, recognize, and
stop domestic violence in,"

to clean
cemetery
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Hiway Park Businessmen/
Star Advisory Board will be
sponsoring a volunteer com-
munity cemetery cleanup for
the Hiway Park .area.
Members are asking people
throughout the community,
Lake Placid area and county
to participate in this event.
Food and drinks will be on
site.
The community is thriving
to continue to maintain the
efforts that have begun to
make major differences in
their environment.
Star Center Project
Director Theresa Williams
said, "Unless a person has
had a death in their family,
they have no reason to visit
the cemetery, but when they
do and find that their loved
ones are buried under over-
grown grass, thorns and this-
tles, it really touches your
heart and motivates one to
want to do something."
Volunteers and members of
both organizations will gather
at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, at
Crestmore Street in Hiway
Park.
For more information con-
tact Daniel Kemp at 465-

A lesson in friendship

Superintendent Wally Cox asks questions after recently reading the book 'The Selfish
Crocodile' to the one remaining class of kindergarten students at Fred Wild
Elementary School. The books were donated by Mid-Florida Federal Credit Union
and given to each kindergarten student in the district. The young students learned a
valuable lesson, recapped by Cox. 'When you're in trouble its nice to have friends to
help you,' he said as the children nodded their heads in agreement.

VA to take over Sebring veterans outpatient clinic on Nov. 1


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Sebring
Community Based Outpatient Clinic

1.
Wallace M. Hopkins, director of
Bay Pines VA Healthcare System,
sent letters to veterans currently reg-
istered with the Sebring VA Clinic.
Notices of the change over have
been posted at the clinic and at the
VA Mental Health Clinic next door.
The S..b'ii, CBOC has been an'
out-sourced veterans clinic for the
last several years. With the Veterans

agement and administration of the
clinic on an effort will be made to
ensure that Veterans receive the best
care possible.
Joseph A. Dionne, Highlands
County Veteran Services Office,
welcomes the changes to the VA
Clinic.
"Having VA employees here in
Sebring looking after our Veterans
makes us feel more connected to the
VA," he said. "I believe it will make
it easier to communicate with the VA
about our needs and have readily
available information from them."
The Sebring clinic is not closing,
and both the primary care and the
mental health care services will
remain open in the current location
at 3760 U.S. Highway. 27 South,


'Having VA
employees here in
Sebring looking after
our veterans makes us
feel more connected
to the VA.'

JOSEPH A. DIONNE

However, the clinic will be tem-
porarily closed for two days, Nov. 1-
2, during the transition and training
period. The staff working at the


clinic will be employees of the VA.

be with a new healthcare provider. If
you are ill or need assistance during
the two days the Sebring clinic is
closed, please call the telephone
advice line at 1-888-820-0230
Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.
to 4 p.m. After hours, the telephone
advice line is 1-877-741-3400. The

chart. If you are unable to keep your
scheduled appointment, please call
863-471-6227. This will allow

ed time.

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop


God's soap

A friend of ours enjoys
giving his son a bath. At
almost 3, he plays and
enjoys this time of relax-
ing and getting clean. But
our friend's been a bit
perplexed by something
he's been saying during
the last few bath times.
As he reaches for the
children's soap, little
Christian says, "God's
soap."
At first, his daddy did-
n't think too much about
it. He just told him that it
was his soap for his bath
and not God's soap.
But, he'd scratch his
head wondering where he
came up with that.
This comment persisted
bath time after bath time.
And on each occurrence,
Daddy reminded him that
it was his soap not God's
soap. But, obviously,
Christian didn't agree.
One evening after he'd
gotten him settled for the
night, our friend returned
to the bathroom to look at
the bottle of children's
soap.
"What," he wondered,
"could make him think
this was God's soap?"
Then as his eyes fixed
on the picture, he figured
it out.
There on the label was
a picture of a lamb.
Between his parents
reading him Bible stories
and going to church,
Christian had made the
connection of Jesus taking
care of his lambs and/or
being God's lamb. Either
way, his thoughts had
been enriched as he asso-
ciated a lamb and God.
Some of my favorite
pictures of Jesus are of
him carrying a little lamb;
of the reminder that while
he himself became the
sacrificial lamb to 'wash
us clean' from our sin, he
also shepherds us his lit-
tle lambs.
How comforting to hear
SJesus' words in John 10:
27, NKJV, "My sheep
hear my voice, and I know
them, and they follow Me.
And I give them eternal
life and they shall never
perish; neither shall any-
one snatch them out of my
hand."
When we can help little
children understand the
security of belonging to
Jesus, we give them a
strong foundation upon
which to build their lives.
,I love how someone
recently turned around the
words from a children's
Sunday school song say-
ing instead of "Jesus loves
me this I know," "Jesus
knows me this I love."
The sooner our children
understand that God loves
them and wants them to
know him personally -
that through Jesus they
can have 'God's soap'
wash them clean, the
longer time they will have
to walk with him from an
early age. And walking
with him will give their
lives meaning, purpose, a
hope and a future.
'God's soap.' It makes
us squeaky clean. Selah

News Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID

paints the subtle grasslands
of Central Florida, she is
using her art to discover
another new landscape opening up on
her lifelong journey.
This journey has taken her from
her birthplace in Santiago, Chile, to
Caracas, Venezuela, through the
islands in the Caribbean, to Coconut
Grove in Miami, and finally to Lake
Placid.
She has always painted the colors,
images and impressions of each place
and stage in her life. She has said
that her paintings are "an expression
of my moods, of my feelings ... and
myself."
Until retirement, Smith's art could
only be a hobby because of her
demanding professional career. She
holds a master's degree in microbiol-
ogy and worked as a research scien-
tist in Caracas,. where she lived for 15
years after her divorce from her first
husband.
"I always wanted to paint, but for
years I was raising kids, working and
studying."
In 1978, she enrolled in the studio
of Venezuelan artist Teresa Azara,
who taught her how to use brilliant
colors "I saw a world of wonders,"
she said. She studied with Azara for
eight years, producing vibrant
abstract paintings.
Chila also became an experienced
sailor and dive instructor who spent
her weekends and vacations sailing
with friends to islands in the lower
Caribbean. In 1988, another sailor
was headed to Caracas on a course
that would merge with hers for life.
Bruce Smith, an American who had
built a 42-foot ketch in Galveston,
Texas, sailed it to the Virgin Islands,
and established his home base in St.
Thomas. From there, he sailed the
islands of the Caribbean, venturing
south to Caracas.
While staying at a marina in
Caracas, Smith had his boat hauled
out for maintenance. The crew who
sailed with him from the Virgin
Islands was leaving the boat, so he
began asking people around the mari-
na if anyone knew a sailor who could
help crew on his return trip to St.
Thomas.
A friend of Chila's told the visitor
that he thought he knew someone he
could recommend.

Charting a new course
"I always wanted to do a serious
ocean crossing," Chila said. "Bruce
was headed to St. Thomas, he needed
a crew and so I said yes."
"She was the best crew I had ever
sailed with," Bruce took up the story.
"After she flew back to Caracas, I
missed her so much. I knew that I
wanted her for first mate, in fact, for

mate period!"
Chila returned to work, but the
couple stayed in touch. Shortly there-
after, Chila had an accident which


resulted in a leg injury and she need-
ed care during her recovery.
"Bruce flew to Caracas to take care
of me, and within two weeks, her

Ana is the daughter of Chila's son Patrick, who lives in Miami with
his family. At the top of the page, Chila and Bruce Smith aboard
the 42-foot ketch 'Kristy Nicole' named for Bruce's two grand-
daughters. The Smiths lived aboard and cruised the islands of the
Caribbean for five years.

asked me to marry him."
She told him she would have to
think about it and most importantly,
discuss it with her two sons, Andy
and Patrick.
"I asked my kids what they thought
and they said 'we think you should
try it. We think he is as crazy as you
are,' she laughed.
Bruce returned to his boat in St.
Thomas. Chila quit her job, packed
up and flew to join him. They were
married within two months, in
January 1989.
The couple sailed the islands of
the Caribbean together for five years,
making many new friends and shar-
ing adventures.
Bruce has a chronic medical condi-
tion which required attention in the
United States, so the Smiths set out
on the long passage which brought
them to Miami, where they based
their boat in the Coconut Grove
anchorage. They continued to live
aboard and redesign their lives to
adapt to the new circumstances.
Chila took the Foreign Graduate
Test to acquire the U.S. credentials
that would allow her to continue
working as a scientist. She worked
for the University of Miami's
Department of Medicine for three
years.
She then joined the Miami staff of
Beckman Coulter as a senior develop-
ment scientist, where she worked for
13 years. Beckman Coulter is a bio-
medical research firm that develops
and produces diagnostic testing pro-
cedures, instrument systems and
chemistries.

Andrew blows ashore
In 1992, Hurricane Andrew swept
through Miami, wreaking havoc in
the-Coconut Grove anchorage. Their
boat was severely damaged, but not
destroyed.
"We rebuilt it because we were liv-
ing on it," Bruce said. "At the time,
we, had no other home."
But with Bruce's health problems
and Chila's demanding job, the cou-
ple realized that moving ashore was
inevitable, and eventually they
bought a condo and sold the boat.
They later bought a smaller sailboat
which they kept handy in the Florida
Keys.
Throughout the years, Chila had
continued to paint. Once settled in
Miami, she enrolled as a non-degree
student in FIU's School of Visual
Arts.
Always interested in the human
figure, she took every class offered in
human figure drawing, plus others in
painting in various techniques. She
began to produce large canvasses of
sophisticated nude studies, many of
older women and men rendered in a
soft, delicate realism.

Some interesting facts about citrus and its impact on our state


Even though
Florida is known
S for being one of
". i the largest citrus
A ''" producers, the
Si citrus tree is not
native to the
., Sunshine State!
It is believed that
News Christopher
From The Columbus intro-
duced citrus to
Watershed the new world.

Corine Burgess But let's go back
even further.
Beginning in Southeast Asia, it is
believed that emperors and peasants.
alike, enjoyed the fruit in ancient
China and later Japan. Over the
years, traders carried the fruit to the
Middle East, Africa, Greece and
Rome. Once the Portuguese devel-
oped and exported the sweeter fruit
(prior to that the fruit was quite bit-
ter) citrus trees began to pop up all
over the Mediterranean.
Florida's climate and sandy soils
are excellent for growing citrus.
The first Europeans planted citrus
seeds and groves began to be estab-
lished. The industry continued to
expand over the centuries and
today, citrus is one of Florida's


largest businesses.
In fact, most of the orange juice
sold in the United States comes
from Florida. The Sunshine State
has approximately 100 million
orange and grapefruit tre-es
on 800,000 acres in 31
counties. In addition,
more than 90,000 people
work for the citrus
industry. Florida citrus
is a $9 billion industry, '.


producing more
oranges than any other
region of the world,
except Brazil, and lead-


ing in grapefruit produc-
tion.
The business generates
approximately $1 billion in t.i\


.


revenues, which helps support
schools, highways and healthcare
services.
Besides helping out by support-
ing these necessary services, the cit-
rus industry helps the environment.
New grove designs allow large
areas of land to provide wildlife
habitat and a buffer between devel-
opment and the'grove. Many
species of native wildlife live in the
groves and mature citrus trees pro-
duce oxygen. Research has shown

S"..citrus juice can aide with
healthy bones, help to
s prevent osteoporosis and
- ... reduce the risk of some
00 cancers.
S In addition, the vita-
mins contained in the cit-
.rus are associated with
N reduced risk for depres-
sion, age-related dementia
or Alzheimer's disease,
,.: stroke and heart disease.
Orange juice is also said to
assist in lowering blood
pressure and cholesterol lev-
els. Vitamin C plays a role
in a healthy pregnancy and
assists children with


that for every acre of mature trees,
16.7 tons of oxygen is produced per
year.
So, we can see that the citrus
industry provides jobs for more
than 90,000 people, pays taxes, pro-
vides food, houses wildlife and has
a major economic impact on our
beautiful state. But did you know
that citrus is also very good for


improved school performance
and attendance, due to a healthier
body. Over 90 percent of Florida's
oranges are squeezed for juice.
Here are some more interesting
citrus facts:
For an orange tree to bear fruit,
it needs to be about 5 years old. A
mature tree can produce more than
1,000 oranges at a time. For most of
its life, the orange fruit is actually a
greenish color. The temperature is a
factor in the color of the peel. But
even if the orange is green on the


outside, it may be juicy, ripe and
sweet on the inside.
Citrus by-products are also
used in the production of other
items such as food flavoring, per-
fume and soaps, cooking oil and
salad dressings, ice cream, slushes,
wine, cosmetics, bug sprays, tea,
bakery products, paints and varnish-
es.
Many Florida citrus growers
are great conservationists and have
started a program called "Best
Management Practices." Being
good land managers, they want to
conserve water and have gone to
more efficient irrigation systems
and use up to 88 percent less water
than they did 20 years ago. This is a
major contribution in water conser-
vation.

Museum and visit with our
CCC Alumni. This annual
festival is held to honor the
men of the Civilian
Conservation Corps, a civil-
ian workforce established by
President Franklin D.
Roosevelt in 1933. During
the festival, you'll meet men
who served all over the
United States, and some who
served right here in Florida.
Listen to their stories and
memories of life in the
Civilian Conservation Corps.
Almost 5,000 camps consist-
ing of more than 3 million
men were put to work in
every state of the Union,
including Alaska, Hawaii,
Puerto Rico and the Virgin


Islands. ,
Enrollees, just like the
ones you'll meet during the
festival, were fondly referred
to as Tree Troopers, Soil
Soldiers, and the Colossal
College of Calluses. These
young men reforested waste-
lands, developed recreational
facilities, worked in erosion
control, fire fighting, and
built dams, bridges, and
roadways during the grips of
the Great Depression.
Come revisit history with
us during this fun event. The
only thing better than coming
for the day is coming for the
weekend! A few campsites
are still available by contact-
ing Reserve America at 800-


326-3521 or online at
www.ReserveAmerica.com.

Continued from 1B
is at home in her body, just
thinking, relaxing."
She also loves to do por-
traits and her masterful
technique reveals the indi-
vidual personality in great
depth. Her home has many
paintings of her grandchil-
dren that reveal their
changes in size and person-
ality over the years.
When it came time to
drop anchor and build a
home for retirement, the
couple began searching for
a piece of land in a rural
area that was still close
enough to Miami for fre-
quents visits to family and
friends.

Lake Placid now
home port
"We drove through Lake
Placid and thought the
scenery here was beauti-
ful," Bruce remembers.
"We asked a realtor to
show us some properties
and when we saw this
place, we said 'this is it."'
The Smiths had a home
designed and built around
an atrium filled with tropi-
cal flowers and plants, visi-
ble from every room in the
house. One large light-
filled room is Chila's studio
"I have to have my stu-
dio," she smiled.
She is now a full-time
artist and the house, closets
and garage are filled with
her paintings.
Although Chila still con-
siders the nude studies as
her "real thing," she said
that she realized that ';ny
thing did not have a market
here in Central Florida."
She decided to paint our
local landscapes because
"wherever you go in
Florida, the landscape is
beautiful."
She began to paint the


pines and the areas around
their home in Lake Placid.
Then, while driving to and
from Lake Placid to Miami,
she noticed the grasslands
along U.S. 27. She began
taking her camera on these
trips and asked Bruce to
stop so she could photo-
graph the scenes along U.S.
27.
"I go out there and I
look, look look and try to
capture what I see in all
those open grasslands."
She has painted these
familiar scenes at all times
and in many lights, from
dawn to sunset. Colors
range from delicate rose at
daybreak, through brilliant
greens and blues at midday,
to crimson, violet and
orange at sunset.
Her distinctive, horizon-
tal acrylic paintings now
comprise a series entitled
"Florida Highway Series -
U.S. 27 South." Through
her eyes, local residents
can view their familiar sur-
roundings in a whole new
light.
"Chila Smith is one of
the few artists painting
authentic Central Florida
scenes," according to Linda
Kegley, one of the owners
of LK Artworks Gallery in
Sebring.
The paintings of Chila
Smith can be seen at the
LK Artworks Gallery, 104
North Ridgewood Drive, in
Sebring's Historic District.
Examples of her work
are also displayed on the
gallery's Web site www.lka-
rtworks.com. Click Artists
at the Gallery on the home-
page, then click Chila U.

> St. :.5-6, '"And Simon
an g said unto him,
Ma ire have toiled all
the night, and have taken
j nothing: nevertheless at thy
word I will let down the net.
And when they had this
done, they inclosed a great
multitude offishes: and their net brake ;
*the above scriptures, Peter chose .o -o'
Jesus and as a result he experienced &t
stunning display of divine power. In our
obedience to God and His word it may
sometime require doing some things that
appear to be unreasonable. Our obedience
to God should never be based on whether
something seems fitting to our way of
thinking. That is ,notit say God always
bypasses comn/noti e, but oftentimes
what He require/ iV may not appear
reasonable or n our preconceived
ideas. Disobedietif 1/ cause us to miss
out on what Go i in stored for us.
Nothing pleases a murore than to have
their children wa7l obedience. God is
even more please His children are
walking in obedie e Blessed!

GENERAL IMPORTANT INFORMATION
The publisher reserves the right to cen-
sor, reclassify, revise, edit, or reject any
classified advertisement not meeting
our standards. We accept only standard
abbreviations and required proper
punctuation.
ERRORS
We make every effort to avoid errors in
advertisements. Please check your ad
the first day it appears. We cannot be
responsible for incorrect ads beyond the
first business day of an advertising
schedule. If you find an error, report it to
the Classified Advertising Department
immediately. See telephone numbers
listed in this directory. The publisher
assumes no financial responsibility for
errors or omissions. Liability for errors
shall not exceed the cost of that portion
of space occupied by such error.
CANCELLATIONS: When a cancellation
is called in a KILL number will be given
to you. THIS NUMBER IS VERY IMPOR-
TANT and must be used if ad failed to
cancel. All ads cancelled prior to sched-
uled expiration date will be billed for
complete run unless a KILL number has
been issued. Claims for adjustments to
billing of advertising should be made
upon receipt of billing by telephoning
385-6155, 452-1009, or 465-0426.

As a compliment to our valued cus-
tomers, the News-Sun offers five 3-line

Leisure Time:

Buying a

second home

With its perfect weather
and beautiful coastline,
Florida has long had more
vacation homes than any
other region in the coun-
try.
The second-home mar-
ket represents a major
segment of real estate
sales throughout the state,
both for buying vacation
homes and future retire-
ment residences.
According to the
National Association of
Realtors, second-home
sales are booming and
Florida is again one of the
top destinations for people
looking for second homes.
Sales of second homes
nationwide have increased
by nearly 25 percent since
2001.
Reasons to consider
buying a vacation home
are as varied as the homes
themselves. For some, it
is simply a lifestyle
'choice; for others, espe-
cially among baby-
boomers, purchasing a
vacation home creates a
family retreat, a place to
reconnect and spend time
with family.
See SECOND, page 4.

SECOND
Continued from 1

Others interested in buying
a vacation home could be
looking for a jump start on
their retirement homes, or
something to pass along to
future generations, and many
buyers of second homes are
sijnply looking for a solid
real estate investment.
Whatever the reason for
buying a second home, con-
sider the following before
taking the vacation-home
plunge:
Location. If you're look-
ing to 'buy, the most impor-
tant thing to consider is loca-
tion. Is this a place you and
your family would want to
visit regularly? Are there
enough recreational activities
for multiple generations of
family? Is it close enough to
the beach, lake or river? Can


it be used year-round? Sixty-
one percent of vacation
homes are located in resort or
recreation areas, another 20
percent are in rural areas.
Consider the distance from
your primary residence, and
how long it will take to drive
there in Friday evening traf-
fic. Most vacation homes are
less than 200 miles from the
primary residence; 42 percent
are in the same state.
Take your time: Buying
a vacation home is not a snap
decision, and it doesn't need
to be. Most buyers of second
homes are under no pressure
to buy, since it's not the pri-
mary residence. Most buyers
take as much as three years
or more to make a decision
about buying a second home,
and many spend several years
renting in the area before
deciding to buy.
Consult the experts.
When purchasing a vacation
home, it's tempting to forego


the usual formalities of the
real estate market. In fact,
fewer than half the vacation
homes purchased last year
were bought through a real
estate agent or broker; with
38 percent purchased directly
from the previous owner.
Nearly half of the for-sale-
by-owner transactions
involved buyers purchasing
directly from someone they
knew beforehand, such as a
friend, family member or
acquaintance. Even if you are
dealing with someone you
know, it's important that your
real estate attorney reviews
all contracts before you sign
them. And, to.ensure you find
the best home to fit your
needs, you're well-served to
hire a Realtor to help you
with your search.
'* Consider tax implica-
tions. The IRS allows a
deduction on thd interest
from a second home. Many
home buyers also end up


declaring their second home
as their permanent residence
in order to receive the
$25,000 Florida homestead
exemption. Residents must be
registered to vote, register
their car and maintain a
Florida driver's license to
qualify for the exemption.
There is no requirement on
how much time the owner
has to spend in the home.
Shop around. Make sure
you've thoroughly shopped
the mortgage market, since
vacation home loans usually
require more money down
and carry higher interest rates
than those for primary resi-
dences. The reason is that
people are more likely to
default on a secondary home
or vacation home than a pri-
mary residence, so lenders
.are looking for people.with
flawless credit and more
assets since they will be
making two payments.
Be prepared for a down-


turn. Resale values of second
homes are far more volatile
than those of primary homes,
especially in the upper price
brackets. Second homes are
discretionary investments, so
when the economy goes
south, second-home values
suffer earlier and more dra-
matically.

Sottile back with Lady Dragons -



new season, healing process begins


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.coni
LAKE PLACID
S home is where the
heart is but some-
times its' the famil-
iarity of home-like surround-
ings that can heavy the bur-
den of a heart.
That is the dilemma facing
Lake Placid girls soccer
coach Elizabeth Sottile.
After the tragic loss of her
husband, state trooper Nick
Sottile, in January, her world
was obviously turned upside
down.
The fact that it coincided
with her team's date in the
district playoff's sent them
for a loop as Well.
"That really messed us up,
mentally, for that game," sen-
ior Brenna DeHart said.
"Knowing what she was
going through, we were kind
of lost."
Unless one has been
through such an ordeal, it is
hard to truly imagine what
coach Sottile went through.
Even more hard to imagine
was whether she would make
it back to the team she's
coached for four years.
Which was, when it came
to pass, her reason for com-
ing back for her fifth season.
"I love working with the
girls, being around them,
coaching them," Sottile said.


"Especially with my seniors
who I've had all the way
through, I couldn't leave
them now."
It was a decision obviously
not easy, but one that has
proven to be inspirational to
her players.
Senior Alejandra Lopez
was lost to the team last
November with an ACL
injury, and was doubtful to
make it back until well into
this year.
But there she is during the
first few days of tryouts,
heavy- and cumbersome-
looking knee brace and all.
"I was working to get back,
but none of us knew for a
while if coach was coming
back," she said. "When I heard
she was, it really inspired me
to do all I could to make it
back. Knowing the pain she
was going through, I knew I
had to get back for her."
The relief of her return is
easily read on her players
faces, in their enthusiasm.
And the compliments
given attest to the reasons
why.
"She's a great coach and
always supportive," senior
Esmeralda Malina said. "If
she sees we're tired or strug-
gling, she'll get us out for a
breather. She always wants to
give us the best chance, put
us in the best position, to

leading the Lady Dragons.


succeed."
But with the inspiration
and ray of hope shown to her
players comes a burden
Sottile has to bear, not only
the decision to come back -
but to keep coming back, day
after day.
"It's tough every day," she
said. "This (Lake Placid High
School) is where Nick and I
met, went to prom together.
There are 27 years of memo-
ries here that I am reminded


of every day."
"I love doing this, but
before, it was a situation
where if I didn't want to do it
anymore, I didn't have to.
Now, I've got to be here I've
got to do this...here."
It is painfully understand-
able how difficult it must be.
It is far too early for the
painful memories to have had
a chance to subside.
But for her positive out-
look, her unending support of


her players and with the
hoped for success of another
season ahead, perhaps new
memories will be added.
New memories to blend
with the old ones, of the
good times, the hard times -
of all her times here.
For with the passage of
time, what we can all hope
and wish for Elizabeth
Sottile, is the memories of
home will be fond in her
heart.

LAKE PLACID Another
night, another district win for
the Lake Placid ladies of the
volleyball court, as they took
a four-game match at McKeel
Academy Friday night.
After dropping a tightly
fought opening game, 25-23,
the Lady Dragons roared back
with a 25-14 win in the sec-
ond outing.
The third game proved the
tie-breaker in another down-
to-the-wire affair, this one a


25-23 win for Lake Placid,
before a 25-22 win put the
stamp on the win, and on a
perfect 6-0 district record.
Leading the offensive
charge for the Dragons was
Kristen Massung with 11 kills
while Christina Wells had six
service aces.
The team had moved its'
district mark to a perfect 5-0,

Allowing your child to receive martial
arts training is not opening up a door to
violence; it is opening a door to building
a solid foundation of self-esteem and
confidence. Students learn that respect
for others, as a priority, naturally leads
to a respect for self. We are looking for-
ward to involving the youth of

Lady Red Devils forced

to walk the plank


BY ED BALDRIDGE
Ne'ws-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Although
Braden River had no one
player that stood out, the
Lady Pirates still defeated the
Red Devils handily Thursday
night in'Avon Park 25-16, 25-
19,25-20.
No kills for the Lady
Devils, and only two aces by
Melissa Tullo told the story,
and even a late third-game
rally could not overcome the
tough Pirate blockade at the
net.
"We had a slow start for
sure," Avon Park coach
Christie Hipps commented.
"We were just not really com-
fortable out there during the
first game. The second game,
we began to get the feel and
work our way up, but even
our good serves at the end
were not enough."
Many of Avon Park's
strongest returns were killed
at the net, often catching the
usually sure footed Red
Devils off balance.
During the first game, the
Lady Pirates pulled out in
front right away, mostly due
to some confusion and a few
Avon Park missed assign-
ments.
When the score reached 19-
8 Braden River, Hipps called
an Avon Park time-out to try
and slow the game a little,
hoping the Devils could
bring it about.
It helped some, but the
Lady Pirates held true to their
course to win 25-16.
Leaning into the wind at
the beginning of the second
game, Avon Park looked lilE
they could pull one out until
the score reached 11-10
.Braden River.
The Pirates rallied from a
strong Daija Barrett service
and put the Lady Devils away
25-19.

readies to serve Thursday
during the Lady Red Devils
defeat at the hands of the
Braden River Pirates.

Manning the decks for the
third game, it was all Braden
River from the get-go.
The Lady Devils' Kelly
Bass had a few more good
serves late, forcing the
Braden River team to tighten
their sails some, but the
Pirates ended the Avon Park
rally 25-20.
"We had some good serves
near the' end, but it just was
not enough," said Hipps. "We
are just focusing on getting
ready for districts at this
point," she added.
The Lady Red Devils next
match-up is this coming
Monday at home against the
Lake Placid Green Dragons.

wary coach's eye on a short-
coming.
"We really played well
together tonight," she said.
"The girls really communicat-
ed very well. But we're start-
ing out slow."
That was evidenced in each
game of the night, as the
Bulldogs charged out to an
early lead in all three games.
Down 3-0 in the opener, the
Lady Dragons stormed back
to even things up at 4-4 and
then surge ahead with five
straight scores for a 9-4 lead.
Frostproof would chip into
the lead in bits and pieces
throughout, but once Lake
Placid had established con-
trol, the Bulldog scores were
kept on a short leash and the
25-17 win was never really in
doubt.
Thinking the momentum
would carry over, it was sur-
prising to see the early-game
slumber continue as
Frostproof again jumped out
on top, 4-0.
But scoring five of the next
six points evened things up
for the host Dragons and
again they got in gear and
cruised away from the
Bulldogs.
From the 5-5 score, Lake
Placid went on a 9-3 run,
sparked by a string of consec-
utive points in a variety of
ways from Tiffany Bisby.


"She's got such potential as
a hitter," Jones said. "She's so
energetic about it, if she can
just reign it in a little and con-
trol it, she can be very effec-
tive."
She was during this run,
dropping some misdirections
over the net, blocking a kill-
attempt and getting a kill or
two of her own.
As in the first game, was
they took off, there was little
looking back as the second-
game final ended up at 25-15.
The third game proved to
be a carbon copy of the first
two, with- Frostproof edging
out in front from the start, but
the Lady Dragons soon catch-
ing up and taking over.
Although the Bulldogs
showed they had a little bite
left in them, never regaining
the lead, but keeping it close.
Lake Placid couldn't
stretch the lead beyond four
and perhaps got chilled a bit
as Frostproof closed the gap
to two at 19-17:
But the Dragons held
strong and only allowed one


'She's got such

hitter if she
could just reign it
in a little and

more Bulldog point before
closing it out with a 25-18
win.
"Tiffany really had a nice
night for us, she wasn't get-
ting sets in the best position,
but she was making the most
of them, as was Tara
(Weeks)," Jones said. Sierra
(Weaver) was very good with
her serving tonight as well.
I'm just really happy, overall,
with the outcome."
The Lady Dragons will get
primed for the postseason
with matches against country
rivals Avon Park, Monday,
and Sebring, Tuesday.

Sebring girls win Rotary, Walker's Ewing paces ladies field


By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The 36th
Annual Rotary Invitational
Meet at Highlands Hammock
featured strong performances
by local teams and visitors.
The Sebring girls won the
team championship trophy
with just 45 points while
Walker Memorial Academy
was second with 54 points and
Hardee was third with 63.
Admiral Farragut Academy
of St. Petersburg won the
boys' meet with 31 points,
Hardee was second with 54,
Avon Park was third with 89
and Sebring fourth with 94.
. Walker Memorial had 120
and DeSoto had 131.


DEVILS

ball 29 times for a total of 164
yards rushing and two touch-
downs.
Still in the second quarter,
Avon Park moved the ball
well on their next possession,
gaining two first downs, but
the Devils were pulled up
short by the Cowboy defense
and didn't make it to the end
zone.
With a little over six min-
utes left, the LaBelle team
struck again with a 64-yard
pass from gunslinger Caleb
Jordan to Cowboys' receiver
Lucas Pratt.
Again the point after was
good bringing the score to 14-
6 LaBelle, but the scrappy-
Red Devils were not to be put
away so easily, and Virgil
Cooper stole the ball back
with a leaping interception,
giving Avon Park the ball on
just the one-yard-line.
Albert Moses rode the
bucking offensive surge for-
ward for one-yard and the
touchdown, but again the two-
point conversion failed leav-


Walker Memorial senior
Jessica Ewing was first over-
all for the girls in 21:44.
Hardee's Edith Leon was sec-
ond in 22:05 and Admiral
Farragut's Kamilla Widulinki
was third in 22:21.
Heather McIntyre lead the
Lady Streaks in fourth at
22:28, with teammate Maxine
Copley finishing fifth in
23:24 and Lady Streak
Sydney Ruble seventh in
24:08.
Admiral Farragut's Alex
Banks led all the boys with a
time of 16:48.
Sebring sophomore Conner
Bauer was second in 17:08,
Hardee's Gilberto Guitierrez
was third in 17:57.

ing a 14-12 deficit.
The Avon Park defense held
Puente on the next series, and
had one more chance, but
failed to punch one in before
the clock ran out at the half.
The third quarter was a
steady grind with both teams
failing to move the ball very
much in either direction.
Finally, with just 13 sec-
onds left in the quarter, the
Cowboys' Puente pulled a
rope trick, this time on three
straight carries for 45-yards,
and lassoed the touchdown.
The successful point after
brought the cowpunchers
from LaBelle to a 21-12 lead.
Avon Park's next posses-
sion was reined in by an inter-
ception by Cowboys' Rey
Hernandez.
The LaBelle team retained


Daniel Temples was ninth
in 19:15 for Avon Park and
teammate Manuel Mumiro
was tenth in 19:17.
Banks set a personal record
with his time the senior
broke away from Bauer in the
second mile.
"That was my strategy,"
Banks said. "I planned to go a
little easy in the first mile and
push it in the second. I was
very pleased with my time.
"We (Admiral Farragut)
definitely love coming here.
This is just such a fast course."
"This is the best, we've run
as a team," Admiral Farragut
coach Phil Barnhill said. "We
have a lot of first year runners
this year. I was very pleased


possession at the start of the
fourth quarter, and Puente
quickly converted the
turnover to gold on his next
carry from 14-yards out.
After the successful point
after, the score became 28-12
LaBelle with 10:57 still on
the clock.
Surprisingly, both teams
went to an aerial attack in the
fourth quarter, but failed to
score again.
Avon Park's Virgil Cooper
went to the air eight times,
completing only two and
throwing one interception
picked off by Labelle's senior
Freddy Robbins.
Defensively, the Devils
recovered two Cowboy fum-
bles, one was picked up by
linebacker James Bland, and
the other was snagged by Fred
Mixon who ran it 17-yards
before being pulled up short.
But Avon Park failed to put
it into the zone, and the game
ended with LaBelle still on
top 28-12.
The Red Devils will be on.
the road for the rest of the
season, and play their next
game at Bartow.


with the effort today. It all
seems to be coming around."
Walker's Ewing was happi-
er for her team results than
her own performance.
"When I heard them read
who got third, I knew it was
us in second and I was excit-
ed," the Lady Eagle senior
said. "This is our first team
trophy."
Both Ewing and Bauer are
looking for better times as
they prepare for the district
meet in three weeks.
"I hope to get my time
down in the 20's," Ewing
said.
"I would like to hit under
17:00 for district and make
the top 10," Bauer said.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month and pink is everyone's color.

Increasing Breast Cancer Awareness, One Person at a Time..
Early detection can save lives, and mammograms are the most important tool in
diagnosing breast cancer. There is no cure for breast cancer, but mammograms
can save lives by finding breast cancer as early as possible. Every woman,
beginning at age 40, should schedule a mammogram and a physical every year.
Women should also perform a thorough breast self-exam once a month. Help
spread awareness in your community by educating your neighbors and friends
on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, and encourage the women you
know to schedule a mammogram today.
