overdue groundbreaking
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING It took 1
years, but the owners of
Majestic Cove officially
broke ground Thursday on a
69-unit "luxury" condomini-
um on Lake Jackson.
Majestic Cove I is the first
of two phases. The second
phase will house 75 units in a
single building, sales manag-
er Gary Mikulecky said.
With two-thirds of the
units sold, including all eight
"Oxfords" -- four bedrooms,
three baths under 2,000 air-
conditioned square feet he
said owners can expect to
move in within 14 months.
The balance of the condos
are three bedrooms, two baths
and are available in five floor
plans with an average price
tag of $425,000.
The new Sebririg residents
are coming from Miami and
other South Florida locales,
New York, Mexico and
Venezuela, Mikulecky said.
"You know what's going
on with the economy down
there," he said. "They've got

Landfill tracking system


targeted search area


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING About 600
tons of solid waste was deposit-
ed at the Highlands County
Landfill from 4 p.m. Friday
until Monday afternoon, when
personnel learned an hours-old
infant may be buried among the
trash.
"When we learned of the
possibility we immediately
stopped depositing waste at the
first working phase and took it
to a second working phase,"
Solid Waste Director Ken
Wheeler said Wednesday.
Highlands 'County Sheriff's
Office learned Monday that a
24-year-old Lake Placid
woman may have given birth
Nov. 23, allegedly leaving her
dead baby' with -curbside
garbage.
Sheriff Susan Benton would-
n't speculate on cause of death
and said the mother gave con-
flicting statements.
Wheeler's office received
word of the situation about 3
p.m. Monday and shifted its
operations to minimize the

LAKE PLACID -
Witnesses watched
Wednesday night as deputies
poured over a trailer on
Sarasota Street in Lake
Placid's Sun 'N Lake subdivi-
sion.
Cadaver dogs were sniffing
around the home Thursday
morning.
"It's part of the thorough
investigation process to rule
out that a baby might still be
there or buried on the grounds
there," Highlands County
Sheriff Susan Benton said.
The Sheriff's Office learned
Monday that a newborn had
somehow died and was
allegedly put in a plastic bag
and placed in the trash by the
24-year-old mother for
Friday's collection.
A witness close to the moth-
er, who asked her identity not
be released for her safety,
spoke with -the News-Sun via
translator Thursday.
"I trust her, and don't judge
her," the witness said. "I think
she did it out of panic because
she didn't want to lose her
family."
The News-Sun is withhold-
ing the identity of the mother
provided by the witness
because Benton would neither
confirm nor deny the name.
The witness believes the
woman kept her pregnancy a
secret, but said the weight
gain was noticeable.
Nonetheless, the two never
discussed a pregnancy.
On Nov. 23, a housemate
allegedly noticed blood and
questioned the woman, the
witness said.
The unidentified housemate
allegedly discussed the matter
with another party, who told
another who called law
enforcement, the witness said.
The witnesses believes the
baby was conceived out of
wedlock by another man, and
that the woman tried to hide
the pregnancy and birth.

Lake Country Elementary program hopes to make reading cool


by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID Lake Country Elementary
School opened its doors to parents of students in the
third to fifth grades for a workshop on reading.
The object of Tuesday's event was to teach par-
ents how to help their children read more fluently,
so the act becomes enjoyable, and they then read
more often.
It was made possible by a collaborative effort of
Florida Department of Education's Just Read! ini-
tiative, the Volunteer Florida'Foundation and Lake
Country's faculty. The event is called Families
Building Better Readers.
The workshop will be held again tonight for par-
ents of Lake Country students in kindergarten
through the second grade.
The school is very aware and appreciative of the
effort parents have made, and will make, to attend
the event, one of its organizers, the school's
resource reading teacher Kathy Robinson said.
This is why the school serves a supper of hot
dogs, chips and soda before the work of the evening

10 tips to help kids

enjoy reading more
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID Improving reading skills is
no different than improving a jump shot in bas-
ketball one has to practice, practice, practice.
Here are 10 tips for parents, grandparents and
anyone helping children to read better:
1. Choose books that are on an appropriate
level for the child. Teachers and librarians are
happy to make suggestions, but there is a simple
test adults and children can do together.
Have the child read aloud a short passage from
the chosen book. If he or she makes no mistakes,
it is probably too easy. If the child misses two or
more words out of 10, then the book is probably
too difficult. A child should be able to read 90 per-
cent of the words accurately and easily.

Lake Placid Food and


Toy Run set for Dec. 8


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
AVON PARK Tony
Ballard remembers what it
was like to go through a child-
hood Christmas with little or
no presents under the tree.
"I remember Christmases
way back where it was pretty
rough," Ballard, now 53, said.
"If I could keep a child from
having the disappointment of
not really receiving anything
for Christmas, it's all worth
it."
To that end, Ballard is
doing his part by organizing
the Lake Placid Food and Toy
Run, which is sched-
uled for Saturday, 'Got
Dec. 8.
"God just placed place
it on my heart to
do," Ballard said. "I in
just thought it would
be nice to have a toy hea
run that started at a d
church, ended at a
church, and also one
that the children TC
receiving the gifts BAL]
would be there. Toy Run
That's something I
felt was very important."
Ballard collects donations,
then he and a caravan of fel-
low caring bikers take their
motorcycles and the presents
from the First Christian
Church parking lot in Avon
Park down to Lake Placid's
Action Revival Family
Worship Center, 139 Williams
St.
There waiting will be a
large group of children, usual-
ly somewhere between 75 and
100 people, who could use an
early Christmas gift.
"We're just trying to help
children," Ballard said,
adding that families from as
far away as Wauchula and


Arcadia came to last year's
event. "It's getting big enough
to where it's reaching out and
helping children outside the
area."
The bikers that participate
in the run come from a wide
area also, Ballard said, from
as far away as Boca Raton,
Bradenton and Ocala.
"It's grown through the
years," he said. "We've been
able to help a lot of children
that probably wouldn't get
anything for Christmas."
Ballard started the food and
toy run in 2000 with "roughly
two dozen bikes," he said. But
in the eight years
d just since, the event has
S grown to around 100
:ed it bikes a year, with as
many as 200 that
my have shown up in the
past. Ballard never
rt to really knows how
o many will be there
until right before the
caravan leaves.
iNY "It depends on
LARD .how many God sends
Founder there," he said. "I go
down there to that
parking lot and I don't really
know until we get ready to
leave."
As the organizer of the
event for the past eight years,
Ballard is fully involved. But
what makes this event special
is his emotional involvement
as well.
"It's really my heart and
soul," he said. "I put every-
thing I've got into it. I give it
all I've got. It's just some-
thing I really believe in, and
apparently other people
believe in it, too."
Ballard is asking for dona-
tions of food and toys for the
event, and he said he's more
than willing to pick any dona-

Run for the eighth straight year.


tions up himself. The dona-
tions "can be something little
or something big. Something
small could be big to the
kids," he said. And while all
donations are certainly wel-
come, Ballard said one partic-
ular age group that tends to
get overlooked is 13- to 16-
year-olds.
The toy run is not limited to
local children, Ballard said, as
kids from anywhere are wel-
come to come. Around 75 to
100 children'come every year,
he added, but despite not hav-
ing a formal way to keep track
of how many kids are coming,
there always seem to be more
than enough presents to go
around.
"There's always enough,"


Ballard said. "It seems to
always work out that way."
Ballard usually arrives at
the First Christian Church
parking lot at around 9:30
a.m., and the caravan is
scheduled to leave at 11. If all
goes according to plan, the
group and the toys should
arrive in Lake Placid between
11:45 and noon.
With all the planning and
logistics that go into the Lake
Placid Food and Toy Run,
Ballard's focus remains sim-
ple.
"We're just trying to help
children," he said.
For more information about
the toy run or to donate, con-
tact Ballard at 452-8570 or
453-4611.'

Merger of local businesses forms largest gaming center in state


B Nl MTT MURPHY

SEBRING -- What'was
once two separate gaming
centers, Dean's in Sebring
and PvP Gaming Inc. in Lake
Placid, has now become one.
Dean's Gaming Center fea-
tured' multi-player card
games, such as Magic: The
Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, and
Pokemon, along with complex
board games such as Risk.
PvP Gaming, meanwhile,
offered players a wide variety
of gaming options for all the
major" video game consoles,
including the XBox 360,
Nintendo Wii and PlayStation
3, along with popular comput-
er games such as World of
Warcraft and Counter-Strike.
But now, in order to pro-
vide local gamers a compre-


hensive experience, the 1to
-"bcompanies ha\e merged. And'
in the process, they've formed
Dean's PvP Gaming Center,
the self-proclaimed largest
gaming center in the state of
Florida.
"It was in our best interest
to merge," owner Emilio
Garibaldi said. "Now we're
the best of both worlds."
With the two types of gam-
ing specialties combined
under one roof, players will
be able to enjoy an even wider
variety of games in one cen-
trall location. The new build-
ing can easily hold more than
200 people; with room for
more if necessary.
"People can play the games
we have here, or bring their
own," Garibaldi said. "We
provide the systems, and it's a


iw e' re

the best of both

.worlds.'

lot cheaper than buying your
own games."
Besides being able to play a
variety of games with fellow
aficionados, the new gaming
center also includes plasma
televisions for the console
gamers, and Internet access
for everyone.
And with both companies
under one large roof,
Garibaldi said the company is
working hird to make itself
known around the community.
To that end, Dean's PvP is


working with Big Brothers
and Big Sisters to establish a
monthly event where kids can
go and play for a few hours.
The company is also a
sponsor of Snow Fest, and
they will bring a tent to the
event with games and demon-
strations for the kids to enjoy.
. Furthermore, the company is
sponsoring its first annual
Game Expo on Saturday, Dec.
15, which will provide chil-
dren- with a full day of gam-


ing.
The new, bigger building
will also be used to host
regional gaming events and
tournaments, which feature
some of the best players in the
southeastern region of the
country.
Dean's PvP Gaming Center
is at 3504 Office Park Road,
behind Arby's and Dunkin'
Donuts in Sebring. For more
information, call 471-2716.

TIPS
Continued from 1A
2. Guide reading practice.
Make sure the child does get a
chance to do some repeated
easy reading. That helps build
their self-esteem, learn sight
words, and allows them to
read with more expression.
Help with difficult words, so
a child can maintain a natural
flow.
3. Games readers play.
Select a passage that a child
can read through in at least
one minute the first time.
Once they are familiar with
the passage, and have identi-
fied unfamiliar words, they
are ready for a "reading race,"
in which they compete against
themselves. Have the child
read the same selection while
timed with a second hand. If a
child makes a mistake. or
needs a prompt, make a note
keeping count. Determine the
score adding the number of
words missed to the total
number of seconds it took for
the child to read the passage.
Make a record, then challenge
the child to do it again.


4. Create flash cards.
Good readers master sight
words. That means having a
bank of words the reader
knows at first sight and don't
have to sound out or look up.
Teachers can provide, lists of
words. When the child reads a
card easily, mark a strike on
the back. After three strikes,
the child wins and the card
can be removed.
5. Play a word mystery
game. Hide an interesting
object, then give a child pho-
netic clues for example the
opening sound, and slowly,
the following letters until
he or she has guessed the
object correctly. Then let the
child find it.
6. 'Real-world' reading.
Use cereal boxes, package
labels, street signs, newspa-
pers, magazines, billboards,
menus, advertisements -
anywhere there is writing.
7. Talk. Engage in conver-
sations. Expand a child's
statements. If they use a
phrase, echo it as a complete
sentence. For example,, the
child says "want juice," and
the adult says, "Yes, you

gets under way.
All of a family's children are welcome to
these events. Volunteer teachers and Lake
Placid High School Honor Society members
are on hand to keep the young ones busy,
while parents attend four different sessions of
,about 20 minutes each.
"These exercises (we are going to teach
you) don't take long," Robinson said. "We
know parents are tired after a long day at
work. The kids have had a long day too, and
may have trouble paying attention. That's why
these (suggestions) are designed to be short
and sweet."
Opening the workshop, Robinson and
Vivian McLean showed parents what they
called the basic building blocks to fluent read-
ing. McLean is a reading resource teacher pro-
vided to six Highlands County schools by the
Reading First state supported program. She
and Robinson build a column out of oversized
.building blocks. Each block had an initial let-
ter to drive home a point the letters spelling
"BUILD" u hen the column was complete.
Be positive about reading and a child's
efforts, Robinson and McLean said.
Unplug the television or monitor and


would like to drink some
apple juice."
Describe what is being
done by the adult, or what the
child is doing. Use vivid
words, correct terminology
(avoid words like "thing" or
"gizmo," for example).
8. Books don't have to
cost an arm and leg. Make
use of the school and public
libraries and the Friends of
the Library bookstores. Used
bookstores, thrift shops and
garage sales also are excellent
sources.
9. Find out a child's inter-
ests, so some of the books
they read are of special
interest to them. Ask them
what they know a lot about, or
what they would like to learn.
Find out titles or authors they
have enjoyed in the past, as
well as favorite subject mat-
ter.
10. Read to and with chil-
dren. Model effective read-
ing. Use expression Pause
occasionally to summarize
what has been read. Ask ques-
tions. Have the children make
predictions and see how those
turn out.


restrict access.
Increase a child's reading time by five min-
utes a day over time, so that ultimately he or
she reads (or is read to) at least 20 minutes
every day.
Learn new ways to practice reading at
home.
Deciding to take the time to attend such an
event, and especially to follow through on its
suggestions, will build a better reader.
The teachers had some sobering statistics
for the parents.
Average American children will have
watched 15,000 hours of television by the time
they are 18. That averages out to 40 hours a
week. Add video movies and games,.Robinson
said, and it averages out to 60 hours a'week,
with some children watching even more.
More troubling, she added, was that the stu-
dents who watch the most.television, are usu-
ally the worst readers.
On the plus side, those students who watch
the least television, are typically among the
strongest of readers.
A family doesn't have to turn off the televi-
sion complete] There are'plenit oftbeneficial
programs, especially if '.'family can-wftch at
least some programs together.
The key is to engage children in conversa-
tion, making them think and digest what they
have seen.'

There is a Safe Haven for mothers who don't know what to do


There is a Safe Haven for mothers who don't know what to do


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING The worst part of a
Lake Placid newborn apparently
being thrown away by its mother is
that it did not have to happen.
Since July of 2000, Florida has
had a Safe Haven for Babies law,
which allows mothers to bring their
newborn babies to a hospital, fire
department or emergency medical
service station and leave them there
without fear of legal repercussions.
The mother must hand her baby to
another person, not simply leave it
on the doorstep. Then she has up to
30 days to change her mind and
reclaim her child.
The Gloria M. Silverio
Foundation, founded by Nick
Silverio, works to educate women
and help them so they don't turn to
violence in their panic.


He and his volunteers work full
time throughout Florida, manning a
help line, providing counseling and
helping women make good choices
without guilt.
One of the main functions the
foundation provides is an ongoing
.awareness program. In addition to
providing stickers, decals and signs
for fire departments, hospitals and
police departments to post in promi-
nent places, the foundation puts up
bill boards, buys radio time, and has
outreach events.- for example, vis-
iting school systems or migrant
worker camps.
The foundation has saved 86
babies in Florida so far, Silverio
said, two of those in the last three
weeks. He added that the foundation
gets about seven or eight calls a day
and from all over the state. Not all of
the calls are about how to pass on a


b ia M. 5Iuio Ibsmdehn,


child. Many women call for other
kinds of help.
"It's amazing the amount of pain
out there," he said in a telephone
interview Thursday. "Countless,
countless, countless women. And
lots of them are not poor or poorly
educated, a stereotype we all thought
(in the beginning)." He added that
many mothers come from substantial


backgrounds.
The foundation has received calls
from expectant mothers as young as
13 and as old as 38.
What the women have in common,
he said, was a sense of helplessness
and hopelessness that could lead
them to terrible acts. Typically these
mothers, he added, have no family
support or are afraid of family cen-
sure. The father is almost never in
the picture. Many are mentally ill or
addicted to drugs.
Silverio said that the babies are
given to private adoption agencies
registered with the state. They place
the children with parents who have
already been screened and approved
to adopt.
The Department of Children and
Families is never involved and nei-
ther is the foster care system.
The foundation has volunteers to


provide a sympathetic ear and useful
information; some speak Spanish or
Creole. Silverio said they never push
for a particular outcome, but work to
find the best, solution for mother and
child.
Silverio does this work from his
heart. Gloria, his wife of 31 years,
Gloria was killed by a speeding driv-
er. They hadn't been able to have
children themselves, but were god-
parents to 14 and enthusiastic aunt
and uncle to many more.
He wanted to memorialize his
wife's spirit, and this saving chil-
dren's lives, mother's futures, and
providing joy and fulfillment to
adopting couple seemed the best,
most complete way to do that.

alone can call (877) 767-2229.

Investigators spent several hours investigation in and around this mobile home on Sarasota
Street in Lake Placid on Thursday, where a mother allegedly put her newborn baby in the
trash on Friday.

Benton confirmed the moth

Following an outdoor
luncheon under a tent, Arthur
Marrero, a principle develop-
er, addressed local dignitaries
that included Sebring council-
men John Griffin and Bud
Whitlock, Community
Redevelopment Agency
Executive Director Pete
Pollard and Dan Andrews,
executive director of the
Greater Sebring Chamber of
Commerce.
Councilwoman Margie
Rhoades, who voted against
Marrero's development and
still opposes the four-story
Mediterranean design, didn't
attend the groundbreaking.
"You know that hotel they
just built on Tubbs Road at
Little Lake Jackson?"
Rhoades said Thursday after-
noon, referring to the
Residence Inn on U.S. 27 that
opened earlier this year.
"That's how big that thing is
going to be."
Rhoades, who said her
absence Thursday wasn't in
protest but because' she .was
teaching, questioned the tac-
tic of pulling building permits
early to avoid impact fees,
arguing that construction did-
n't begin for more than a'year.
The permit was issued in
July 2006, before Highlands
County had approved the
impact ordinance in
September.


before.
"I can't say where it hap-
pened, there's trouble up there
and up there," he said, point-
ing towards, both ends of
Sarasota. "Police were here, a
whole bunch of them."
The search continued at the
Highlands County Landfill
Thursday evening for the
infant's remains. If found, an
autopsy would help determine
if it the child was bon prema-
turely, still-born, died natural-
ly postpartum, or was mur-
dered.
Among other things, resi-
dents in the area were asked if,
they put out any bulk or larget
identifiable items which might
help narrow the search at the
landfill.
"We are getting geared up.
An additional outpost is out
there in preparation for the
additional people in the next
few days," Benton said,
explaining volunteer firefight-
ers are joining search efforts
today.
Benton said two six-hour


Though the official cere-
mony was Thursday, a build-
ing department official said
various aspects of construc-
tion commenced long ago,
including a pair of marina
slips one at each phase.
"Sebring is a city on the
move," Marrero said. "We


shifts of 40 people each will
sift through remains at an
"uncontaminated" location at
the landfill.
"Anytime that you work a
case such as this, you maintain
the integrity of the evidence
for the greatest level crime
that would be possible given
the circumstances ," Benton
said, explaining she's investi-
gating this as a homicide but
noting that any charges levied
could range from misde-
meanor to felony.
If evidence, through autop-
sy or admission by the baby's
mother, indicates homicide,
murder charges could follow.
However, if the baby died
naturally, the mother could
face a misdemeanor charge of
improper disposal of human
remains, Benton explained.
Within that range, she could
face charges of "child abuse
and all kinds of other things."

News-Sun reporter Kevin J.
Shutt contributed to this report;


certainly like to be a palt of
that growth."
Mikulecky called the
development "absolutely
upscale."
"We like to brag that
there's nothing like this until
you get to South Florida," he
said.


SEARCH
Continued from 1A
human remains, Wheeler
asked for volunteers.
Landfill personnel were
able to narrow the search
because they track every
trash-hauling vehicle, record-
ing time, date and weight of
the load.
If the woman's child was
placed in the trash as indicat-
ed, Wheeler said the hauler
arrived just before 4 p.m.
Friday.
Through the holiday week-
end, 94 loads were delivered
to the first phase until 3 p.m.
Monday.
i Coincidentally, Reliable
Sanitation fired the driver of
the garbage truck in question
Friday evening, Wheeler
explained.
Allegedly, the driver didn't
cooperate initially, causing a
broader search than necessary.
"The drivers can tell us
what part of the working
phase they dumped on,"
Wheeler said.
Oncea load is dumped, a
bulldozer pushes the garbage
onto the phase and an 85,000-
pound compactor lays off the
waste in 18- to 24-incl layers.
The phase is trapezoidal,
about 140 feet wide at the bot-
tom, 80 feet at the top and 60
feet up and down..
Benton called on the
Florida Sheriff's Task Force
for cadaver dogs to find the
baby. Wheeler said his office
was 'notified of this decision
Tuesday afternoon.
"There's a lot of waste that
comes in that has human
waste on it," Wheeler said,
citing Band Aids, hypodermic
needles and other legal-to-dis-
card residential medical
waste. "The dogs uncover that
also. It's not as easy for them
as it sounds."
Landfill and Road and
Bridge crews have been scrap-
ing off 4-6 inches at a time,
allowing the dogs to sniff and
the officers to sift through any
alerts.
Wheeler's staff offered sug-
gestions to ease the process


but understood the sheriff
must follow her own protocols
in gathering evidence.
Benton said search tactics
will change today, when she'll
implement two shifts of 40
people each.
In addition to law enforce-
ment, the crews will include
firefighters both profes-
sional and volunteers were
asked over the radio Thursday
afternoon to volunteer through
the weekend.
The garbage will be taken
to an "uncontaminated" area
of the landfill and each shift
will spend tvwo six-hour shifts
combing through the trash
With the dogs alongside.


So far, Benton said, no evi-
dence linked to the Lake
Placid residence has been
recovered at the landfill.
Upon receiving word the
search is over, Wheeler said it
would take half a day "give or
take" to resume normal opera-
tions.
Benton said the search will
end when a body is found or
when they've exhausted the
possibility of finding the baby.
She lauded Wheeler,
Landfill Operations Manager
Dick Gorman and their staff
for their unrelenting support.
"I just made sure my staff
was available," Wheeler said.
"They call the shots."

SWFWMD sets example for Green Initiative


Special to the News-Sun
WEST PALM BEACH -
Investing now in a greener
future, the South Florida
Water Management District is
making environmentally
focused changes to improve
energy efficiency, reduce
water use and take advantage
of alternative fuels.
These efforts are designed
to meet -and exceed-the
"green challenge" issued by
Governor Charlie Crist earlier
this year. The governor's
executive order directed state
agencies to lead by example
in reducing greenhouse gases,
increasing energy efficiency
and pursuing renewable and
alternative energy sources.
"The South Florida Water
Management District is to be
commended for implementing
on its own, much of what the
Department of Environmental
Protection is helping coordi-
nate at the state level,"
Michael W. Sole, Secretary of
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection,
said. "We applaud and con-
gratulate their efforts."
The district has invested
more than $1.3 million on
recent facility upgrades,
including switching to high-
efficiency lighting, retro-
fitting air conditioner chillers
to remove ozone-depleting
refrigerants and installing
more low-flow, waterless and
dual flush bathroom fixtures.
In addition, the district's
vehicle fleet includes 162
vehicles equipped to run on
alternative fuels such as
ethanol, biodiesel and hybrid-
electric. In fiscal year 2008,
the number of alternative
fueled vehicles will rise to
194, making up 44 percent of
all district vehicles.
"The district is taking the
lead in adopting green tech-
nologies, which goes hand in
landd with our environmental
restoration initiatives,"
SFWMD Governing Board
Chairman Eric Buermann
said. "We are in the forefront
of a growing worldwide
movement to reduce green-
house gases and protect our
resources for future genera-
tions."
More green changes at the
district are expected in the
future through a partnership
established with the U.S.
Green Building Council, an
organization transforming the
way buildings and communi-
ties are designed, built and
operated. The District is also
working with the U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency and has been desig-
nated as an "Energy Star
Partner."
The EPA's program pro-
vides advice and guidance on
how to measure, track and
improve energy performance.
"We are grateful to
Governor Crist and ,DEP
Secretary Sole for recogniz-
ing that Florida is among the
states most vulnerable to the
effects of climate change,"
SFWMD Executive Director


Carol Ann Wehle said.
"The district has enthusias-
tically embraced the chal-
lenge of becoming the state's
leading agency in eco-friend-
ly practices."
In the near future, the dis-
trict plans to adjust land man-
agement practices to enhance
carbon offsets, install a
reflective roof membrane as
part of its headquarters roof
replacement project, explore
green roof and solar panel
alternatives, and increase the


Friday, November 30, 2007 9A


'News-Sun' honors Celebrate sponsors


number of hybrid/alternative
fuel vehicles to 50 percent.
The district will also continue
to exceed native plant
requirements for building
landscaping, begin using
biodegradable paper products
and environmentally friendly
cleaning solutions, implement
eco-friendly building stan-
dards in the design and con-
struction of any new facilities
and continue the installation
of additional plumbing and
lighting efficiency measures.

Remember to have fun

during the holidays

Well, now that November is almost completely
behind us, and the turkey leftovers are gone, it is time
to get down to business preparing for Christmas.
Of course, modern Christmas has become famous
for the giving of gifts.
In fact, the giving of gifts in December has become
such an important part of the American economy that
it is almost our patriotic duty to spend money.
That makes urging caution while shopping a diffi-
cult proposition. Our neighbors and friends whose
livings are in retail, are counting on us to keep them
in the black. ,
But this year, more than at any other recent time,
there are significant doubts about the financial future,
especially as the mortgage and housing market col-
lapse has yet to run through its cycle meaning
things will get worse before they get better.
This is why we urge caution while spending, espe-
cially if the money spent will have to paid back later,
and with a high interest rate added.
Take care that a dazzling Christmas day isn't fol-
lowed by months of worry and sacrifice. Guard
against the kind of splurging that gets people into
trouble.
As long as we are being somewhat grumpy and cau-
tious, there is another danger lurking ahead.
As we get closer and closer to the actual holiday,
and we become more neurotic and crazed under the
pressure, try to remember to slow down when rushing
from one store to another.
Almost every year there are terrible stories of loss
- of people killed in their cars by being impatient or
not paying attention. finding the perfect present
isn't worth the cost of a life.
So please, be careful and thoughtful of others, drive
within the speed.limit, look both ways, come to com-
plete stops.
Then go to church, sing Christmas carols, decorate
trees, wrap gifts, make cookies and visit family and
friends just do it all safely.
And if there is any time left over, by all means,
have fun.




'In an era of government secrecy,
constitutional conflicts and polarized
politics, the job,of America's free press
has arguably never been tougher
or more important,'

KENNETH A. PAULSON
USA Today editor, 2006

Rebuilding Together Lowe'smprovee hsheome


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK
Volunteers from Lowe's of
Sebring are dedicating their
time and expertise to improv-
ing the home of Alfred
Williams of Avon Park.
Williams' family members -
including his father Alfred
Williams Sr., his stepfather,
Marshall Johnson, and his
uncle, Larry E. Coleman, a
retired carpenter worked
with volunteers from
Rebuilding Together of
Highlands County.
The project includes re-
roofing the entire home, com-
plete with new fascia, drip
edge and soffits donated by
Lowe's.
This project, made possible
through a $1 million grant
from Lowe's, is one of 42
Rebuilding Together projects
awarded a grant following
Lowe's annual Swing for
Charity,. a charitable golf
event hosted by the company
and supported by its vendors.
"To be a part of the com-
munity means you roll up
your sleeves and work with
neighbors to help make the
lives of others better," Paul
Devlin, president of the
Highlands County affiliate of
Rebuilding Together, said.
"Through these efforts,
Lowe's is committed to pre-
serving and revitalizing the
homes of the elderly, persons

with disabilities and lower
income families.
"Homeownership is under
threat today in America,"
Gary Officer, president and
chief executive officer of
Rebuilding Together, said.
"With Lowe's and mahy
other corporate partners, we
are working to preserve
homeownership, one of the
most important elements of
stability and sustainability in
our communities."
"Lowe's is in the business
of helping people improve
'and maintain their homes,"
said Larry D. Stone, chairman
of the Lowe's Charitable and
Educational Foundation.
"We are proud to partner
with Rebuilding Together to
renovate and modify homes


for some of our community's
most vulnerable residents.
Lowe's shares Rebuilding
Together's commitment to
creating a safe and comfort-
able environment to accom-.
modate a homeowner's spe-
cial needs."
Rebuilding Together is
America's largest volunteer-
based home-repair organiza-
tion bringing volunteers and
communities together to
improve the homes and lives
of homeowners in need.
"Through our rebuilds,
we're bringing warmth, safety
and accessibility to home-
owners who do not have the
financial or physical where-
withal to complete home
repairs and other necessary
improvements," Devlin said.


Homeowner Alfred Williams Jr. assists Rebuilding Together '
volunteers and inspects his damaged roof.


Rebuilding Together is the
nation's largest nonprofit
organization working to pre-
serve, homeownership and
neighborhoods by providing
rehabilitation services free of
charge to those in need.
Through the support of cor-
porate sponsors, local busi-


nesses, and. the work of a
quarter-million volunteers,
Rebuilding Together rehabs
and repairs more than 9,000
homes each year. The market
value of this work is in excess
of $100 million annually. In
addition to its core home

cy, veterans housing, and dis-

tion. Rebuilding Together has

in 1988, and is now preserv-
ing safe and healthy homes in

Advent season begins Sunday with lighting of Prophet's Candle


Special to their News-Sun
AVON PARK The Advent Season
begins Sunday, celebrating the coining of
the birth of Jesus. The four Sundays before
Christmas Day herald this event.
At Avon Park First Presbyterian Church
(ARP). the lighting of the candles is a spe-
cial family time each Sunday. On the first
Sunday, the purple Prophets' Candle will be
lighted by April Garcia while her parents,
Wendy and Gaspar, read Isaiah 40:1-11.
.The Prophets' Candle symbolizes the Light,
who would bring peace and love to the
world.
On Dec. 9, the purple Bethlehem Candle
symbolizes the dark night when Joseph and
Mary found light and warmth in the stable.
Mark 1:1-8 is the scripture to be read. by
Abby Robinson while daughters Alecia and
Courtney light the candle.


The third candle in the Advent wreath is
called the Shepherd's Candle, and it is
iliold on Dec. 16. Ashley Calhoun will
light this candle that symbolizes the great
light and joy surrounding the shepherds at
the announcement of Jesus' birth, with John
1:6-8 read as the pink candle is lighted.
The fourth Sunday of Advent, on the
morning of Dec. 23, the next purple candle
will.be lighted by Delora Golden, and sym-
bolizes light of the stars in the sky, which
guided the wise men to Jesus as Matthew
wrote the record of the event in Scripture.
Doug Golden will read the scripture.
Then, at the Christmas Eve Candlelight
Service, at 6 p.m., the fifth candle, a white
one, will be lighted by the Miranda Family.
This is the Christ Candle with Scripture
read from Genesis 3:8-15 and Isaiah 40:1-
5, 9-11 by Ralph and Yon Hui Miranda. The


four candles already lighted remind
Christians of the expectation, preparation.
proclamation, and revelation of His com-
ing. Then, as the Christ Candle is lighted.
on Christmas Eve, the church rejoices at the
promise of God that has been fulfilled in
the coming of the Babe in Bethlehem's
manger. The Christ Candle signifies the tri-
umph and joy of Christmas.
The public is invited to attend any of the
worship services at 10:45 a.m.. the
Christmas Cantata, "Celebrate the
Seasons," presented at 6 p.m. Dec. 16 with
a reception following, and the special
Candlelight Christmas Eve Service at 6
p.m. during this Advent ard Christmas sea-
son.

don't turn over the controls
to God we will surely die, for
without His direction we will

It is hard to surrender. We

never to give up and that if
we do we are weak, but with
God we are gaining strength,
not suffering weaknesses. We
are giving our lives to the
Creator of the universe and
because we surrender to Him
we now can experience all
His power and greatness.
Stop arguing with God,

High School Basketball

Walker Memorial takes two from Victory


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK The Walker
Memorial boys basketball
team scored 29 points in the
fourth quarter to roll to a 69-
56 win over district rival
Victory Christian of Lakeland
Tuesday night.
Chris Tangunan led the
Eagles with 33 points while
Walker's Gabriel Carrion
added 14 and teammate Mark


Arquitt had 10.
The visiting Storm jumped
out to a 10-7 lead but Walker
bounced back in the second
period behind 11 points from
Tangunan and five from
Carrion the Eagle guards led
the team to a 25-24 halftime
lead.
The Eagles featured a more
balanced attack in the third
quarter and ended the frame


with a 40-34 advantage.
The Eagles improved their
record to 1-1 (2-1) and will
return to action Monday
against Life Academy of
Kissimmee.
In girls action, a strong
first quarter proved to be the
edge for Walker Memorial.
The Lady Eagles outscored
visiting Victory Christian 18-
7 in the first frame and went


on to win 52-41.
Senior center Marylyn
Lastimosa led Walker with 18
points and 10 rebounds.
Senior Jessica Ewing led
the team on the boards with
12 rebounds.
The girls will return to
action Tuesday against
Sebring's Heartland
Christian.


Perkins always stepping forward


Every so often you
Srun into a person who
:is sincere and honest.
Someone who's agen-
da is clearly stated,
and who you believe
S is the real deal.
You know after a
bit that this person is
Mr. Ed a real boost to the
community, and to
Says everyone he touches.
Ed Baldridge It's thegkind of per-
son who helps you to
understand that life is not about winning
or losing, but about succeeding.
And you realize that even in defeat,
even when the score is 60-0 against your
team, you can still stand up and be
counted among those who are success-
ful.
Earnest Perkins is one of those people.
"We are trying to raise men here," he
told me once at the beginning of the sea-
son.
"We want every kid here to leave
thinking better of themselves, and of
their abilities. We want them to focus on
grades and discipline as much as on
football. Win or lose, we want these
kids to be winners in the game of life."
It was confirmed on Tuesday that
coach Perkins was no longer the head
football coach at Avon Park.
Was it a surprise? No.
Someone has to take the hit for a los-
ing season.
The Red Devils ended the 2007 sea-
son with a heartbreaking 1-9 record.
And he stated that he knew that there
maybe changes in the wind, but Perkins,
always looking to the positive and the
future, stated that he has decided to take
the last 15 months with these kids and
go out like they did at the end of the
season.
"I am going to go out like I came in,
with my head high and my dignity in
place, just like I expected my players to
do. Just the short time I have spent with
these kids have made me proud of
them."
Always looking to the future, Perkins
announced additionally that he would no
longer continue in the high school sports
arena.
"I got six more years until I retire, and
I want to go back to middle school or
elenientary school coaching, I think I
can make a difference there, and I want
to continue to teach. I still believe that
through disciple and education comes
wins. In my 26 years as a coach, I dis-
covered that winning is in the third year,
.but only after you have established the
foundation of academics come before


News-Sun file photo by SCOTT DRESSEL
Earnest Perkins, in celebration after his teams' upset win over Hardee this sea-
son, is not one to go out with his head down after any loss an attribute that he
has abely passed on to his players.


'I'm going to go out
like I came in, with my
head held high and my
dignity in place, just like
I expected of my
players.'

EARNEST PERKINS
football."
As a new sports writer, I came into the
2007 Avon Park football season with
high hopes, as did everyone else.
But as the season wore on, I began to
realize that these young men were get-
ting something that it took me a long
hard time to learn in life.
Your high school football stats do not
matter when you are looking to get a job


or need to feed a family.
After high school, these young men
are going to heed to be providers at
some level.
Some would need to get whatever job
they could find, some would have to
work their way through college, and
some might end up in jail.
Just like my high school mates.
When your own kids look up at you
and ask for money you. don't have, the
last football game is soon forgotten.
Oh, I admit, it would have been nice
to beat Sebring, and to score a little
more.
But this team really played their
hearts out with the odds stacked against
them.
The Red Devils got in there and
scrapped with the best in the state, sure
they lost, but they took it on the chin

NFL Picks

Jacksonville (plus 7) at Indianapolis
The Jaguars can tie the Colts for the
AFC South lead. Marvin Harrison's
availability is still a question.
COLTS, 20-17

New England (minus 20) at Baltimore
(Monday night)
Don't expect another close game for
New England.
PATRIOTS, 35-10

Buffalo (plus 5 1/2) at Washington
It's hard to tell how Sean Taylor's death
affects Washington.
REDSKINS, 24-10

Cincinnati (plus 71/2) at Pittsburgh
(Sunday night)
It might take six days to get Heinz Field
in shape.
STEELERS, 21-13

New York Giants (minus 11/2)
at Chicago,
The Giants have to kick away from
Devin Hester, and Eli Manning and Rex
Grossman have to throw it to their own
guys.
None of the above.
BEARS, 30-29.

Tampa Bay (plus 3) at New Orleans
A must for the Saints if they want a
chance to win the NFC South.
SAINTS, 20-16

Seattle (plus 3) at Philadelphia
If Philadelphia plays close to the way it
played in New England ...
EAGLES, 28-24

Detroit (plus 3) at Minnesota
The Lions have lost two straight at
home and are awful on the road.
Free fall.
VIKINGS, 19-12

New York Jets (plus 1) at Miami
Yes, winless Miami is favored.
DOLPHINS, 5-3

San Diego (minus 41/2)
at Kansas City
If the Chargers are back on track, they
win easily. If not ...
CHARGERS, 24-20

Cleveland (pick 'em) at Arizona
A lot of points are very likely.
BROWNS, 35-34

Houston (plus 31/2) at Tennessee
Never mind Vince Young's struggles,
the Titans are 0-3 without Albert
Haynesworth. Maybe he plays. Or not.
TEXANS, 20-17
Denver (plus 31/2) at Oakland
Devin Hester doesn't play for the
Raiders.
BRONCOS, 20-10

San Francisco (plus 3) at Carolina
First home win for the Panthers.
PANTHERS, 16-10

Atlanta (off) at St. Louis
"Off" is Marc Bulger's health.

4D Friday, November 30, 2007

EARNEST
Continued from 1D
and came back stronger and
closer as a team.
I had a chance to talk to
them at the beginning and the
end of the season, and I could
tell that most had done some
growing up.
Even as a reporter on the
sidelines, I could see their
determination, feel their
pride, and see their outlook
on life change.
The never give up attitude.
It was in their eyes and in
their voices after every
game.
"We gotta get back to
work," they would say. Or
"We got to put this game
behind us and look to the
next one."
Never a complaint about
other teammates, you hear
that a lot sometimes.
Never a complaint about
the fans or the coaching staff
just positive, respectful atti-
tudes.
Take Virgil Cooper, the top
running back for the Devils, a
smallish guy with good speed
and a toughness that lasts a
whole season playing both
ways.
On more than one occasion
an extraordinary run of his
was brought back because of
a penalty.
It happened more than you
would think possible in that
2007 season.
,Almost every game, there
was a breakaway by Cooper
for big yardage, and every
single time, it seemed, there
was a flag:
Cooper would shrug and
say, "Come on we can do it
again."
Didn't blame anyone, did-
n't say the refs were evil, just
got up, dusted himself off,
and went at it again.
That is the attitude that d
successful person in life has.
Not just anyone can teach
that.
Yes, Avon Park had a los-
ing season, but look at the
other records.
Almost every kid on the
team was an academic schol-
ar.
Every interview with Avon
Park's players was about
respect.
Every young man on this
team was expected to get out
of bed early and put in the
extra discipline it would take
for weight conditioning and
every player was expected to
behave on and off the field.
During Avon Park's final
.game of the season, I was
standing on the sidelines
when they faced off against
the Tigers in Palmetto.
Big school and big town.
Most of the population of
Avon Park could have fit in
the stands on the home side,
and there would have still
been room left over.
But I will never forget.
Avon Park was losing, and
the man leading the chain
gang turned to me and said,
"You guys have a great
coach. I wish we had your
coach."
Later on, some of the other
members of the chain gang
commented on how the
Devils coaching staff had
good sense.
The leader of the chain
gang and I talked for a bit,
and I discovered that
although Palmetto had a win-
ning season, and was sure to
make it to the state play-offs,
as a father he was more con-
cerned about his kid learning
the ideas and getting the sup-
port he heard on the Avon
Park sidelines.


After that last game, I was
waiting around for my quote
from Perkins, and I overheard
him talking to the other beat
reporter. Not wanting to miss,
the quote of the season, I
stepped up to listen.
Perkins was thanking the
other beat reporter for his
support of the kids, and apol-
ogizing for a losing season.
Typical for Perkins, but
what I heard next rung a bell
for me, because it was exact-
ly what I was going to ask,
it's just my colleague asked it
first.
"It's OK coach, I am really


looking forward to next year,
what's the plan? Next year is
going to be a great year."
You see, even we, as
reporters, had caught that
attitude.
Grown men, both of us, out
of high school thirty plus
years, but we showed we
could still learn.
No complaints over the,
past, just a look at what we
needed to do to succeed for
the future.
Strength and honor, coach.
