Withdrawals


from SBA


help avoid


$9 million


liability

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.comn
SEBRING The State Board of
Administration of Florida prides
itself on trust, performance and
integrity.
A constitutional arm of Florida
government, the SBA manages'
investment and retirement funds for
about 1,000 governmental agencies
throughout the state.
Highlands County accounted for
at least three of those clients the
Board of County Commissioners,
Clerk of Courts and Tax Collector.
In the past year and half, the SBA
experienced an investment philoso-
phy shift that resulted in half its
funds being downgraded to junk sta-
tus, said Bob Jamison, senior direc-
tor of Business Services for the
Clerk of Courts.
"That's how they lost our trust and
confidence," Jamison said Tuesday,
explaining to the board that most of
the county's money has either been
removed from the SBA or shifted to
a safe fund with SBA.
Jamison updated the board on the
- run on SBA funds that began late
November and resulted in the freez-
ing of $14 billion in statewide
investments.
Of the $67 million "idle" funds
placed with SBA by Highlands
County, the Clerk of. Courts (the
county's accountant) was able to
withdraw $51 million before the
freeze.
When SBA unfroze its assets, it
allowed only limited withdrawals.
Jamison said another $4 million of
county commission cash was
removed and placed with the original
withdrawal in a Bank of America
emergency account.
"This was a consequence of what
was happening in a down market,"
Jamison said, cautioning the board
that'what happened with SBA is the
beginning of a ripple effect just
beginning to flow outward.
He said the clerk's first priority
was to protect the county's funds,
then his own.
Clerk L.E. "Luke" Brooker'
adheres to the "SLY" investment
principle of Security, Liquidity and
Yield, in that order.

Future uncertain for IB program


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING Questions arose Monday night as a
gfest speaker came to preview, the :Intethrnational
Baccalaureate program.
An estimated 250 parents packed the
Hill-Gustat Middle School commons '
area to listen to Dr. Edwin Vetter, prin-'
cipal of Florida's top-ranked Bartow
High's IB school. c
"There are costs associated with the
program," Vetter said before discussing
the rigor and relevance of the IB, cur- signific

Called the IB Hexagon, the curricu- ANDY '

years of English, social studies, a foreign language, sci-

A student completing the program will complete a
4,000 word "extended essay," a class called "Theory of
Knowledge," where, as Vetter put it, students discuss


how they know something and how they "know, they

called "Creative Action and Service."

Other costs include teacher training at
$650 per teacher, and student exam fees,
another $650 per student, according to
Vetter.
Teachers who work with the program,
however, see no salary increase.
"It was something they wanted to
offer," Vetter said of*his IB teachers.
"They did not ask for extra money."


Filling 12-24 advanced teaching positions was
looked at differently by some board members.

position

AVON PARK In a sur-
prise development during the
city council meeting Monday
night, City Manager C.B.
Shirey suddenly chose a new
pathway in life: He formally
applied for the newly created
full-time position of execu-
tive airport manager.
His offer occurred sponta-
neously, during a discussion
of the proposed position.
Shirey said 16 individuals
had applied for the job, but
only three of them had any
airport administration experi-
ence. He will enter the com-
petitive hiring process, and is
considered a front runner.
Retired from the Air Force,
Shirey has been the aiPport's
part-time manager as part of
his city hall portfolio. He has
a current and thorough under-
standing of the airport and its
issues, several of his support-
ers said.
"I can't think of anyone
better suited," former mayor,
Tom Macklin ..
said. Macklin
was elected to
the city coun-
cil the same
year Shirey
became 'city
clerk, 13 and
a half years Shirey
ago. They
have worked together on city
business for years.
"He knows the funding
mechanisms and is already a
member of the Airport
Manager Association,"
Macklin said. "This is a good
step toward further develop-
ment at the airport."
In a telephone interview
Tuesday, Shirey sounded
relaxed and upbeat. "I feel,
wonderful," he said, but then
warned that nothing was a
done deal, there were hiring
rules and some complications
that had to be met. He was
waiting on final word from
the city attorney. For one
thing, as city manager he
can't hire himself.
But he couldn't keep the

Diagnosing a sick health system


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
* Analysis
WASHINGTON D.C. -
Talk to anyone here involved
with either making health care
policy or executing it, and
they agree, the health care
system in the United States is
urgently in need of reform.
That doesn't mean, howev-
er, that solutions will come
quickly or the problems be
solved easily. In fact, at this
point, many of the individuals
working in the field are quite
pessimistic about accomplish-
ing anything meaningful, any-
time soon.
There are so many stake-
holders, so much money
involved, and so much inertia
that accomplishing change
will take both effort and time
they say.
Reform is made more diffi-
cult because beyond the

The Knight Center for Specialized Journalism arranged for
eight different presenters. Some were elected officials, some
were university professors, some worked at policy forming
foundations. Here Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) talked about
his health care reform proposal. Presentations covered the
entire spectrum of political thought from right to left, as well
as the work of non-partisan researchers.


agreement as to the wretched
state of affairs, there are so
many different ideas of how
to fix the situation; and so
many different approaches


and points of view that opin-
ion is often sharply divided.
For example, Republicans
typically focus on costs, while
Democrats worry about ade-


quate coverage.
Then there are regional
biases: In New England peo-
ple are comfortable with gov-
ernment as part of the solu-
tion; out west, in states like
Wyoming or Montana, how-
ever, people want to solve
their problems privately, and
keep the government out.
Ultimately, it will be about
what Congress wants to do.
It will take 218 votes in the
House of Representatives, and
60 votes in the Senate to
assure passage of any legisla-
tion a number of votes that
health care reformers have not
yet amassed.

Sebring CRA picks firm to develop.


Washington Heights Neighborhood Plan


A couple of anglers


By MATT MURPHY
matt.mnurphy@newssun.con
SEBRING Planning firm
Keith and Schnars was
declared the first choice to
develop a Neighborhood Plan
for Washington Heights by
the city's Community
Redevelopment Agency on
Monday. The move will allow
the city to enter into negotia-
tions with the firm on plan-
ning costs and the scope of
service contract.
The selection was affirmed
by a unanimous vote at
Monday's CRA meeting, after
commissioners listened to
presentations from Keith and
Schnars and Wilson Miller, a
second Florida-based plan-
ning firm.
In the presentations, both
companies expressed a desire
to work closely with the
Washington Heights neigh-
borhood in developing a long-
term plan for the area. CRA
commissioners praised Keith
and Schnars, however, for
specifically saying how they
would keep residents of the
neighborhood in the loop,
including holding neighbor-
hood workshops and planning
sessions, opening a design
studio for planners to receive
advice from residents, and

duct any prescribe burning in
that area.
Earlier in the week, the U.S.

working closely with media
outlets and the city to get the
word out about the planning
process.
Keith and Schnars has
worked with the city since
1993, and they have been
involved in the past eight
Streetscape projects. Vice
President Roger Statzer
emphasized the city-company
relationship in his presenta-
tion.
"We feel like we've proven
our merit to the city," Statzef
said, "and we fervently
pledge to continue that rela-
tionship and provide the same
level of quality of service
we've provided all these
years. There will be no break
in service." ,
I Keith and Schnars also
emphasized its planning work
in other cities, including com-
prehensive and master plans
for downtown Fort
Lauderdale, the cities of
Marathon, Hollywood and
Delray Beach, the South
Miami-Dade watershed, and
the Plantation central busi-
ness district.

their presentations, specifical-
ly complimenting the two
companies' desire to work
closely with the neighbor-
hood.
"I'm intrigued by the info
they're giving," Saffold said.
"I'm just overwhelmed with
the possibilities of change."
Saffold also expressed how
important the Washington
Heights Neighborhood plan is
fo his community and to the
city as a whole.
"We're very tuned in to
making Sebring one city
rather than two different
neighborhoods," Saffold said.
"If these changes are imple-
mented, I see the possibility
of having a proud city."
Pollard said involving the
Washington Heights commu-
nity in the process would be
of the utmost importance in
ensuring the Neighborhood
Plan succeeds.
"The most important factor
in actually making something


positive happen in
Washington Heights is going
to be community involve-
ment," CRA executive direc-
tor Pete Pollard said.
Pollard added that a rede-
velopment plan was first
adopted in 2004, but getting
to the point of actually
designing a plan has taken
longer than expected. He said
moving forward with plan-
ning for the project would
help gain the trust of
Washington Heights resident.
"It's going to be a very vis- -
ible beginning," he said.
Now that the CRA board
has ranked Keith and Sthnars
as its first choice for the
Washington Heights
Neighborhood Plan, Pollard
will enter into negotiations
with the firm over fees and
scope of service. If negotia-
tions with Keith and Schnars
are unsuccessful, the city will
then go to Wilson Miller for
negotiations.

SEBRING The case of
the missing golf cart was
Closed shortly after it opened
- with the reappearance of
the golf cart minutes after it
was reported stolen.
The vehicle went missing
from behind Michael's
Restaurant Dec. 9 and was
later discovered in the front
parking lot.
The vehicle suffered a bro-
ken windshield and a golf bag
worth an estimated $1,000
was missing, but for officers a
suspect was easy to discover
- one of the alleged thieves

The ID belonged to Am)

victim said he recognized the
photo on the ID as someone
that worked at the restaurant.
Crosby was found at her
boyfriend's home, and admit-

words.
When asked how her ID
wound up on the seat of the

entertain

The holidays are a great time to
entertain. So, whether you're having a
small get-together or a big bash, consider
our helpful serving suggestions:

Prepare dishes ahead and refrigerate or freeze,
then heat them just before guests arrive.

Serve small amounts at a time and refill from the
refrigerator or a hot pot on the stove.

A European-style cheese plate makes a great
after-dinner food and beverage accompaniment;
put together several cheeses with different tastes
and textures.

Don't forget the coffee, especially when it's
cool outside.

it one step at a time instead of
taking all the step's at the
same time," Randall said
when asked how IB would
affect advanced education in
Highlands County.
"What the steering commit-
tee will be doing is looking at
the data and presenting it to
the board to see how well it
would fit in Highlands
County," Hancock, a member
of the steering committee,
said.
Sebring High School
Principal Toni Stivender, also
on the committee, has been
busy gathering procedural
information.
"How do you implement
it," she .asked. "That is. a
major concern for me."

The SBA did too, Jamison
said, until, in his opinion, it
began taking more chances
with the up market of two
years ago, when i~t placed
yield before security.
Jamison and county, offi-
cials learned of the situation,
as did the rest of the state, on
Nov. 14;, and begin formulat-
ing an "exit strategy."-
Had he had two more days,
Jamison said the county's
funds would have been fully
withdrawn from SBA.
"A day late, a dollar short,"
Commissioner C. Guy Maxcy
said.
Working with consultants,
SBA devised a plan that sepa-
rates the money it still holds
into two funds. Fund A, the
"safe" investments, received
86 percent while Fund B
received the 14 percent bal-
ance.
For Highlands County, that
means there's $7 million in
Fund A and $1.8 million in
Fund B.
In a worst case scenario,
SBA expects 50 percent of
Fund B investments are
secured, meaning the county


the high school.
The $6 barbecue meal
includes a half chicken,
coleslaw, baked beans, a roll
and beverage.
"The firemen are helping us
cook it and the kids are going
to be delivering the food to
the drive ups and walk ups,"
Rush said.
Pictures with Santa will be
offered for a small fee, thanks
to a student donating supplies
and the use of her digital cam-
era.
"You can stay and dance or
get pictures taken with
Santa," Rush said. "You know
it will be big when Santa
shows up."
Schools for Schools is a

More companies and indi-
viduals are using private avia-
tion for basic transportation.
The council wants the airport
to be able to take advantage
of the opportunity.
It will take investing in
improvements and repairs,
creative marketing, and find-
ing a wider source of funding,
Shirey said. He didn't seem
intimidated by the challenge.
"I'm just looking forward,"
he said.
The city council will con-
sider the matter at its next
meeting, Jan. 2.
In the mean time, Shirey
will continue as city manager
and oversee the airport.

Stivender,had questions on
subjects ranging from teacher
supply and funding issues to
the types of classes offered
and what qualifications stu-
dents needed to get in and
stay in the program.
- "I have so many ques-
tions," she said. "I don't want
to read it on the Internet. I
want to talk to a person."
She plans trips to local IB
schools, mentioning numer-
ous sites within an hour drive.
A wide array of schools can
be explored, from decade old
programs like that in Bartow
to schools recently offering
IB. Stivender said she would
be interested in visiting newer
programs to see what issues


could stand to lose almost $1
million.
"As far as we're concerned,
$1 at risk is not acceptable,"
he said. "But, this is the way
it is."
Jamison said the county can
further protect itself by find-
ing long-term investments to
assign to the $1.8 million lia-
bility in SBA., Doing so
would lessen the impact of
any losses realized.
Specifically, he suggested
using the Landfill Closure
Fund, which has a $5 million
balance and likely wouldn't
be needed for several
decades.
Solid Waste Manager Ken
Wheeler asked for more
investigation before designat-
ing the landfill the "scape-
goat."
Due to constraints imposed
during the most-recent budget
cycle, he said he agreed to
cease transferring money to
the closure fund, instead rely-
ing on interest to bring the
account to maturity.
Disabling that process,
- Wheeler warned, could affect
Department of Environmental
Protection permits that keep
the landfill in operation.
In addition to county com-
mission dollars, the SBA had


money that is directly used to
help build schools in Uganda.
Schools in the area are
important for the children
because most current schools
are not safe places.
The funds raised through
the project are guaranteed to
be used properly to ensure the
safety of the children that
attend.
Some children are abducted
in the night and forced to
fight for the Lords Resistance
Army or work as sex slaves,
among other things.
The LRA has been con-
demned by the United
Nations and designated a ter-
rorist organization by the U.S.
government in 2001 for its
use of child soldiers, some as
young as 8 years old.
"(The fundraising project)
means a lot to me because we
have a lot over here.
Nowadays kids are complain-
ing, that 'myspace' won't load
quick enough or that their
iPhone broke," Rush said.
"We are so fortunate and we
take it for granted a lot. All
they are asking for is a
school."
The fundraising goal of the
freshman SHS class, which
spearheaded the project, is a
lofty $10,000.
Through the high school,
students have already donated
$2,500 in change but this.
is their big fundraiser for the
entire community.
The project .ends in
February.

schools implementing IB

The district application
deadline for IB is months
away but according to School
Board members the program
is already the top educational
issue of local parents.


$13 million' from the Tax
Collector's office, which was
transferred to the county
meaning $11 million was in
Fund A and $1.8 million is in
Fund B.
The Clerk was able to with-
draw all but $400,000 of the
$2.8 million he had invested
with SBA, Jamison said.
The near-1/2 million
amount is tied up in Fund B.
In all, there's $4 million in
SBA's non-liquid Fund B and
SBA's consultant expects
being able to guarantee only
50-cents on the dollar, mean-
ing the county could lose $2
million if it were to withdraw
that money when the funds
opens.
But, Jamison noted that the
county avoided a $9 million
risk by liquidating its invest-
ments and placing them with
Bank of America.
Between Fund A and the
bank, Jamison said the coun-
ty's cash flow shouldn't be
adversely affected, which he
said is counter to what half of
SBA's depositors are facing.
"I expect Fund B will be
non-liquid for about a year,"
Jamison said. "By then, they
likely will have regained the
trust of their customers."

HEALTH
Continued from 1A

addressing congress and
advising presidents for years.
She warns that health care
spending is increasing 2 to 2.5
times faster than the rate of
inflation. At the same time,
the number of individuals
who are uninsured continues
to get larger, currently esti-
mated at 47 million.
Many of these uninsured
wait until they are very sick to
seek out medical treatment
through an emergency room.
This means, among other
things, that the treatment will
typically be more costly.
Complications also are more
likely.
"We have clear problems
with delivery," Wilensky said,
"and the spending is unsus-
tainable. By 2030 Medicare
and Medicaid will be 17 to 18
percent of the gross national
product just in entitlements."
Despite the need for change
she thought it would take
until 2012 or 2016 for enough
popular support to develop
for a president to be able to
enact major reforms. There
will have to be sacrifices,
financial redistribution and
radical shifts in thinking -
right now, Wilensky said,
there is no such political will.
The division of opinion -
some of it emotional isn't
only about insurance cover-
age and cost there are seri-
ous quality issues too.
For example, there are
about. 100,000 untimely
deaths in hospitals every year,
many due to infections picked
up during a hospital stay, Dr.
Risa Lavizzo-Moorey said.
She is a practicing physician
and chief operating officer of
the Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation. The foundation,
created by one of the Johnson
& Johnson brothers, is a $10
billion philanthropy dealing
exclusively with medical
issues.
Lavizzo-Moorey said a
Rand Corp study published
recently in the New England
Journal of Medicine shows


that patients are likely to get
the correct treatment in a hos-
pital 53 to 54 percent of the
time.
The same study found care
was worse for children. Using
175 quality measures, chil-
dren received correct care 46
percent of the time.
"We have a problem," she
said. "We spend $6,500 per
person per year (for health
care). Two times more than is
spent in the United Kingdom.
"Infant mortality (in the
U.S.) is higher than in any
other industrial country
except China.
"Thirty percent of deliv-
ered care is not needed, for
example antibiotics, some
scans and X-rays. Spending
more doesn't mean better
care."
In fact, Lavizzo-Moorey
said, there are huge dispari-
ties in health care in this
country, with economic level
and race being major factors
in the differences.
It all adds up to a system,
she said, that is much more
expensive than others. Worse,

it has a high chance of error
or wrong care.
While the elements needed
to create a successful new
health care system may not
yet have fallen into place,
there is a growing interest
about the subject among the
general public. Health care
now ranks among the top
three issues of concern listed
in recent polls. Only the war
in Iraq and the economy rank
higher.
In addition to this rise of
awareness, policy makers and
their advisors have begun to
seriously think about the
problem. Potential solutions
have been proposed.
Future articles in this occa-
sional series will detail the
presidential candidates'
health plans, other expert sug-
gestions, and examine how
abstract national policy mani-
fests into local action.
Other articles will deal with
delivery of health care to vet-
erans and the elderly, as well
as the issue of prescription
costs, availability and quality.

seminar on

changes in

elder law
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Roy Wilkes
of the Elder & Disability Law
Firm, 3750 U.S. 27 North,
recently attended an
advanced elder law seminar
regarding changes to
Medicaid eligibility in
Orlando. Presented by the
Academy of Florida Elder
Law Attorneys, the invita-
tion-only seminar examined
how Florida is implementing
the federal Deficit Reduction
Act DRA '05 and how it will
affect Florida seniors.
The new rules will have an
impact on the way elderly
people qualify for nursing
home assistance, special
needs trusts, long-term care
insurance, annuities and other
related issues.
The Academy of Florida
Elder Law Attorneys is a non-
profit association that helps
lawyers, bar organizations
and others who work with
older clients and their fami-
lies.
Staff members also consult
with other elder advocacy
experts regarding complex
tax situations and family law
issues, as well as nursing
home injury, abuse or neg-
lect.

Bank of America donates $10,000

for Highlands Countv RCMA kids


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Bank of
America recently presented a
$10,000 check to the
Redlands Christian Migrant
Association, which provides
child care and early education
for more than 600 children of
migrant farm workers and
other low-income, rural fami-
lies in Highlands County.
"Programs that provide
school readiness are key in
'helping our children to thrive
academically in the future.
For that reason, Bank of
America is proud to partner
with Redlands Christian
Migrant Association in
preparing the children of our
community for a better tomor-
row," Doug Sherman, Bank of
America market president,
said. "We believe that invest-
ing in our children is an
investment in a better future
for all of us."


Presenting the check to
RCMA staff and children at
RCMA's Sebring Child
Development Center were
Diane Davies Prescott, Bank
of America vice president and
regional client manager for
DeSoto, Highlands and
Moore Haven, and Linda
Spivey, Bank of America sen-
ior vice president.
"This gift will generate
funds to provide child care for
40 farmworker children in
Highlands County for one
season," said Barbara
Mainster, executive director
of RCMA. "Under our fund-
ing formulas, we can generate
$16 in matching funds for
every $1 donated. In essence,
Bank of America's $10,000
donation makes a $160,000
impact on RCMA. We are
delighted to have Bank of
America's support."
Founded in 1965 in the


Redlands farming area of
southern Miami-Dade
County, RCMA serves nearly
8,000 children at more than
70 child care centers and two
charter schools in 21 Florida
counties. RCMA, which has
been serving families in
Highlands County since 1981,
operates nine childcare cen-
ters in Avon Park, Sebring.
and Lake Placid and a region-
al business office in Avon
Park.
Florida's largest nonprofit
childcare provider, RCMA is
funded by local, state and feds
eral grants, as well as the gen-
erosity of businesses, individ-
uals, the United Way and
other organizations. Dona-
tions and volunteers are
always welcome. For more

Make a difference in a


child's heart this season


Tired of attending the same
boring office holiday parties,
or unable to decide what to
give the boss or supervisor
who has it all? Does your ges-
ture of generosity go to some-
one who never appreciates the
gifts of kindness given?
There are other options that
can bring fulfillment.
Each year the United Postal
Service is flooded with hun-
dreds of letters from under-
privilege. children requesting
Christmas gifts from Santa. A
small "percentage of the
requests are acknowledged,
but hundreds go unanswered
and end up in "file 13."
Here is a suggestion: Why
not help. Santa out by teaming
up with your coworkers and
going to your local postal
service? You can select some
letters and purchase gifts in
honor of your boss, your
supervisor or your depart-,
ment. This heart-warming
gesture would be making a
difference in the life of a
child.
There is also an agency that
needs help'during this season,
our local domestic violence
shelter. The demand for dia-
pers, baby wipes, gas cards,
telephone calling cards, gro-
cery shopping cards, toi-
letries, reading materials,
games and items for teens is
high.
With the economy facing
an upheaval with high taxes,
high gas prices, high home
insurance rates, foreclosure,
and low or diminished
income, many families are
struggling to make ends meet.
Here is an opportunity to help
a family with a bag of gro-
ceries, or buy a special gift or


Etnp~lidr IV


an item of clothing for the
child or children in a family.
It's easy to know of needy
families, whether, it's through
.your neighbor, church group,
an organization, or even from
your child's teacher or child.
Children are very perceptive
and often times they hear
heart-breaking stories of
need. They can tell you which
of their classmates is strug-
gling financially.
Don't know what to give
that special someone in your
life who has everything? Give
a gift of love and inspiration.
Find someone who is going
through cancer treatment.
Survivors of cancer will tell
you that going through
chemotherapy and radiation is
a sickening period. Wouldn't
it be wonderful to give a gift
of a massage therapy, a
makeover, a facial, a mani-
cure or pedicure. This would
surely help to enhance the
spirit of this individual.
As you celebrate the birth
of Christ, give the gift that
will bring joy to the less for-
tunate or the most deserving
within your community.
Everyone has a gift to give. It
doesn't have to be material; it
could be your time as a volun-
teer.


Take enthusiasm and apply it to life


Oh, it happens. It must cer-
tainly does. It occurs often in
the weirdest of times. It
occurs sometimes when you
least expect it. It occurs, occa-
sionally, when you do expect
it. It is that sudden 'burst of
enthusiasm.' It is that sense
that the world is falling into
it's rightful position.
Now, if you know me, it is
not rare that I get these bursts
of enthusiasm. Yet, it is still a
treat whenever it does hap-
pen. After all, it is a feeling as
if you are catching the clouds
in your fingertips and the
moon beams are kept in the
bag beside you. It is a feeling
that if it was to be bottled,
will appear in a bright blue
glass container with a label
stating "take in small doses."


Murphy's
Law
Lindsey Murphy
Perhaps you know exactly
what I am describing. For,
after all, you just had that
brand-spanking new grandba-
by brought into this world. Or
perhaps you found out that
you did superior on a project
you have been slaving over
for the past month.


Yet, I am here to throw the
hook into the water, for enthu-
siasm can come out of the left
field at times. It could come
when you are starting a brand
new position and you are not
quite sure how it will pan out.
Instead of fearing over it, you
charge into the scenario head
first.
Or it might come in the
form of a trial in your life; a
death of a loved one, a new
location, a change in the fam-
ily dynamics. You decide to
face the trail, no matter the
length, with a smile on your
face and enthusiasm burst
forth of your fingertips.. For,
after all, you know that trials
produce perseverance and
endurance.
Like with a plapt, in order




v9


for your enthusiasm to flour-
ish, you must nurture it. You
see, my little plants need a
space to develop their roots
and to grow their stalks. The
plants need their daily supple-
ments of water and sunlight as
well. When you take this
enthusiasm that you have
about life and apply it to the
areas you touch, it begins to
grow and flower. It is an
aspect of life that is often
quite contagious, so you must
be careful.

Park resident, currently attend-
ing college. She can be contact-

Nation's direction
should matter
Editor:
'Twas the year before vot-
ing and throughout all our
land,
With all our problems no
politician seems to have a
plan.
Oh, there are many talking
a lot and pretending to care,
In hopes that they will end
up in the White House chair.
The Republicans and
'Democrats both have
thoughts and a plan,But it
seems not for us, only our
money in their party can.
Romney, Rudi, McCain,
Hillary, Obama, Biden and so
many more,
Taking their poles, saying
what's ended and keeping the
score.
While all us voters are nes-
tled all snug in our beds,
Visions of leadership is
dancing in their heads.
Political aides have mas-
tered the sound bite and print,
Not telling the whole truth,
just giving us a hint.
When will us voters wake
' up and realize the lies in the
chatter,
It's all about their party;
programs or people don't
really matter.
Read their records, study
their lives, put on your think-
ing cap,
Don't let the talking heads
make of you a sap!
Look at our past, check out
the present, does our current
direction matter to you?
Nearing 4,000 dead and no
telling how many are maimed,
but more than a few.
Our debt is way beyond
comprehension who knows
where that will end too,
The extreme rise in the
price of gas affects all we buy
and all we do.
Beyond all our trials and
tribulations our service
people always standing tall,
They go where they are
sent, willing to answer our


government's call.
It doesn't matter to them
who is the 'Commander of
Chief,
As it's their duty to follow,
regardless of the grief.
When your wondering eyes
stop and a service person
should appear
Remember to honor them
as you have nothing to fear.
If you pass a service man or
woman in uniform wherever
you are,
Smile, even salute, let them
know they are your shining
star.
It's your Navy, Army, Coast
Guard, Marine, Guard and Air
Force
Officer or enlisted,man or
woman, they will all stay the
course.
Be proud of their service
and humble in their company
You support is needed for
all of them to see.
Show your pride in their
service by living a good life,
Don't trash the streets,
steal, do drugs' or beat your
wife.
Work if you can, help oth-
ers and love your family and
friend,
Get involved, vote intelli-
gently, be the best you can!

Sebring is a great
community to live in
Editor:
The recent loss of our son,
Wayne Weed, has really con-
firmed our feelings that
Sebring is a wonderful and
caring community. The out-
pouring of love and sympathy
from our many friends was
overwhelming.
When tragedy strikes a
family, the support like we
received does not make the
sadness less, but knowing that
there are so many people that
really care makes bearing the
sadness a little easier.


Everyone was wonderful
but we would be remiss if we
did not give a special thanks
to Charlie Taylor, Mark Gose,
Danny Yarbrough, Chris
Sebring and Pastor 'Andrew
Katsanis for handling all the
details of the memorial serv-
ice.
We want to thank everyone
for their support and kind-
ness.

Medal of Honor Park is site of Pearl Harbor remembrance ceremony


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Medal of
Honor Park was the site of a
Pearl Harbor Remembrance
Ceremony on Dec. 7. The call
to order was given by retired
Army Sergeant Major Joseph
A. Dionne. Highlands County
Veteran Services officer, fol-
lowed by the invocation by
Deacon James McGarry, with
the Knights of Columbus in
Sebring.
The Veterans of Foreign
Wars and other veteran organ-
izatioris throughout Highlands
County posted their organiza-
tion flags near the podium.
The VFW Honor Guard for
Post 4300 presented the
American flag for the flag
salute, led by Fred Arbelo,
commander of the Military
Order of Purple Heart.
Shannon Marrero led the
singing of the national
anthem.
*Harry Marsh, president of
the Veterans Advisory Board,


welcomed the guests, 9t
including Highlands
County Commissioners
Edgar Stokes and Don
Bates.
Dionne explained the j
purpose of the event, "...
we are honoring the
heroes from Pearl Harbor, -j
Dec. 7, 1941, the day the
United States of America
was attacked on our mili-
tary bases in Hawaii by -
the Japanese. We are hon-
oring our fellow soldiers
who were serving at Pearl
Harbor 66 years ago, our -
war weary soldiers from L
World War II, as well as
all of our soldiers from all
wars. With our Medal of
Honor Park, we are honor-
ing the soldiers from' C
Florida who are recipients hi
of the Medal of Honor. on
With that, we are dedicat-
ing our new park benches,
donated by the members of
the 40/8 in Lake Placid."

A Navy Bell Toll Ceremony
was prepared and presented
by Dionne and retired Navy


Chief Petty Officer Betsy
Waddell, president of Waves
Unit 88 and president of the


Veterans Council of
Highlands County. The
Navy Bell ceremony, with
each of the eight tolls of
virtue, was conducted to
remind the members of
the audiewne of the char-
acter traits the military
tries to instill in the
troops and so deeply
etched in our war heroes.
.Dionne asked the audi-
ence to concentrate on
each virtue as the Navy
bell tolled. The virtues are
excellence, integrity,
service before self, honor,
perseverance, courage,
strength, and dedication.
A ninth and final bell
tolled for "freedom" out
of respect for those sol-
diers who are currently in
harms' way.
Hank Marsh introduced
the guest speaker


Highlands
Commissioner
Jackson, a local


County
Andrew
attorney. He


reminded the overflowing
crowd of the horrors experi-
enced by the soldiers of Pearl
Harbor, as well as the hard-
ships endured by all the war
heroes, including the current
soldiers in hotspots through-
out the world.
The dedication of the
Medal of Honor park benches
followed with Dionne and
Marsh recognizing Herb
Wilson, Past Chef de Gare,
Forty et Eight Post 863, for
initiating the project. Marsh
presented Ray Plough, current
Chef de Gare, a citation for
the Volture for its dedication
to assisting all veterans and in
assisting with the Medal of
Honor projects.
To close the ceremony,
Marrero led the group in
singing "God Bless America,"
followed by the benediction
given by Deacon McGarry.
The VFW 4300 Honor Guard
played "Taps" and presented
the 21-gun salute.

Breakfast Lions
SEBRING Diana S.
Furr, executive director of
Samaritan's Touch Care
Center, spoke before the
Lions Breakfast Club at Dot's
Restaurant last Thursday
explaining what the
fledgeling free care center is
accomplishing.
Furr told the assembled
Lions just how much this new
area program has impacted
the health needs-of the poor.
Attendees were amazed to
learn of the many successes
the young program has
already had. Primarily this
program has already saved
local hospital emergency
rooms well over $1 million.
The program was explained
as an adjunct to help needy
families with no or low
income and no access to any
other medical assistance. The
patients do not have any
recourse to government pro-
grams.
Many local physicians,
nurses, and other profession-
als are donating their time and
expertise ay no cost to this
new endeavor. Local churches
are also helping to make this
venture a glowing success.
Furr emphasized that what
is provided is a medical
"home" where those without
resources can receive free
medical exams and testing
also free medications, health
education and emotional and
spiritual support.
The establishment is
housed on Herring Avenue.
Any questions and/or requests
for an appointment can be
made by calling the facility at
471-1870. Volunteers are
especially welcome.

Sebring Elks 1529
SEBRING On the first
Sunday of December, the
Benevolent and Protective
Order of the Elks throughout
the country celebrates a
memorial service "To Our
Absent Members." Those who
have passed away this past
year are recognized and a per-
manent plaque with his or her
name is added to the existing
roll.
This year the Elks were
honored to have the Avon
Park High School Show Choir
and the Rev. George Neal
from First United Methodist
Church of Zolfo Springs par-
ticipate in the ceremony.

Sebring.Optimist Club
The Highlands County
Mentor/Tutor Program held
its fourth annual Volunteer
Recognition Luncheon last
Thursday at the Palms. More
than 1,000 local residents
contributed tens of thousands
of hours mentor/tutoring stu-
dents. in 13 schools last calen-
dar year. They saved the
school board more than
$700,000. The group honored
171 volunteers who con-
tributed 50-plus hours.
The Highlands County
School Board, South Florida
Community College RSVP
and the Sebring Optimist
Club sponsored this luncheon.
Each volunteer received a cer-
tificate of appreciation and
four people received plaques


for the most hours. Joan
Lundy had 559 hours at Lake
Placid middle and elementary
schools. The school recogni-
tion plaque will hang at the.
LPMS where Lundy con-
tributed more hours. Kathleen
Mills Montgomery received a
plaque as RSVP coordinator
last year. Dr. Laura Van Horn
received a plaque as the
school board coordinator.
The Boys and Girls Club
opened one of its classrooms
for students in Avon Park.
There is more work to done to
complete the other classroom,
but the students can now use
the facility for after-school
activities.
Although local businesses
and residents have con-
tributed. substantially to this
endeavor, the cost of estab-
lishing this program contin-
ues to mount.\ The $20,000
matching fund project has
now reached $3,000-plus.
Residents are encouraged to
send contributions from $5 to
$100 to Woodraun Wright,
area director of the Boys and
Girls Club, P.O. 1596,
Sebring, FL 33871,
Upcoming fundraisers
include Beef 0' Brady' Spirit
Day on Jan. 4 and Super Bowl
Party at Caddy Shack on Feb.
3.

TOPS Club 632, Lake
Josephine
SEBRING Tops Club
meets every Monday at First
Baptist Church of Lake
Josephine. Weigh-in begins at
2:30 p.m. and ends at 3:20
p.m. The meeting begins at
3:30 p.m. and is approximate-
ly one hour long. For more
information, contact Judy
O'Boyle at 699-2986.
The meeting was called to
order by the leader. Members
saluted the flag and then the
Tops and Kops said the
respective pledges. Members
sang two songs from the new
books, "You Are My Song"
and "Write It Down."
The roll was called by
Karen Goodwin and there
were 43 members present.
Losses were very good and
the club showed a. net loss
when all the figures were tal-
lied. The best loser of the
week was Putt Crandall.
After a, short business
meeting the program entitled
"Hidden Sugar" was given by
Lil' McNeeley. She began by
showing us an empty 16-
ounce jar and proceeded to
read off a menu that any one
of us might eat during a typi-
cal day. She started with
breakfast and gave us a nor-
mal menu, but listed the hid-
den teaspoons of sugar in
each of the foods we may eat.
Each time she would mention
a food item and the sugar it
contains, her assistant would
measure out the sugar and put
it in the jar. She moved onto
midmorning coffee break,
lunch, afternoon break, dinner
and bedtime snack.
When she had finished with
a "typical" day of the non-
dieter, the jar was "almost
completely full." Members
came away from the meeting
with a lot to think about and
with more determination to
read the labels and discover
hidden sugars in foods.

Rotary, Gates Foundation join forces for polio


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING There is a
new partnership forming
between Rotary International
and the Bill and :Melinda
Gates Foundation that will
provide a much-needed $200
million in support of Rotary's
top goal of a polio-free world.
The Gates Foundation has
awarded The Rotary
Foundation a challenge grant
of $100 million, which Rotary
will match, dollar for dollar,
over three years. This is the
largest single grant ever given
to a volunteer service organi-
zation and represents a
tremendous validation of the
approach and success of the


PolioPlus program.
This partnership comes at a
critical juncture for the polio
eradication initiative, which
needs an infusion of funds to
reach the eradication goal.
For this reason, the initial
$100 million will be distrib-
uted by the Rotary
Foundation through grants to
the World Health
Organization and UNICEF in
direct support of polio immu-
nization activities in 2008.
Participation in this effort is
crucial to making it a success.
The Rotary International
Board of Directors and the
Trustees of The Rotary
Foundation have unanimously


agreed to accept the challenge
grant to ensure the success of
the PolioPlus program.
Rotarians feel confident that
this extraordinary commit-
ment from the Gates
Foundation and Rotary will
serve as a catalyst for further
donations from others to help
realize the dream of a polio-
free world.
In 1985, Rotarians prom-
ised every child a world free
from the threat of polio and
we are almost there. The
funding agreement between
Rotary and the Gates
Foundation is a huge step for-
ward, bringing that goal event
closer.

Cataracts result from
Phones available for


a variety of causes,


A cataract is simply an
opacification of the normally
clear crystalline lens directly
behind the iris, or colored part
of the eye. As the opacity
becomes more dense over
time, it hinders the patient's
ability to see as well as they
once did.
Depending on the type of
cataract that forms, com-
plaints may consist of:
blurred vision (more at dis-
tance than at near), glare
(especially at night with
,oncoming headlights or
streetlights), difficulty read-
ing (due to the sensation of
dimness, or not having
enough light), reduced color
perception, or may not pres-
ent with any complaints at all.
Cataracts result from a
variety of causes. The most
common, reason, for develop-
ing a cataract is age. Trauma
(ocular or head contusion),
toxic (use of steroids and
other medications), and
intraocular inflammation can
all lead to cataracts.
Radiation, intraocular tumors,
and degenerative ocular dis-
ease (i.e. retinitis pigmentosa)
are also associated with
cataract development.
Certain systemic diseases are
linked to cataract formation,
including: diabetes (cataracts
often develop rapidly),
hypocalcemia, Wilson's dis-
ease, myotonic dystrophy,
and Down's syndrome to
name a few.
More than 1.7 million
cataract surgeries are per-
formed every year in the
United States. A cataract does
not have to be "ripe" before
surgery takes place, thanks to
modern surgery techniques.
Today, 2.75 mm incisions are
the standard. Sutures are
rarely necessary and recovery
time is rapid.
Whenever a patient's vision
is not good enough to accom-
modate his lifestyle, cataract
surgery is necessary. Referral
to a cataract surgeon is appro-
priate when the patient's
vision cannot be improved
with a change in glasses.
Cataract surgery may be per-
-formed for reasons other than
to improve visual acuity.
Surgery may be needed as
therapy for ocular disease


Dr. Valerie Moulds


(i.e. lens-related glaucoma) or
to manage ocular disease
.more effectively (i.e. moni-
toring diabetic retinopathy).
A referral may be made when
the cataract has become so
dense that it precludes a view
of the back of the eye in a dia-
betic patient. The eye doctor
has to be able to see the retina
in order to screen the patient
for diabetic retinopathy.
In contrast, cataract surgery
should be delayed for a longer
period of time in patients who
have macular degeneration.
The visual outcome may not
be as good as expected since
some of the vision loss-may
possibly be due to the macu-
lar degeneration. A more dra-
matic improvement will be
noticed by the patient if they
can wait for the cataract to
progress to a more mature
level.
If a patient with macular
degeneration chooses not to
wait, they need to understand
that cataract removal may not
improve their vision in the
way they expect. Brightness
and color perception, may be
better, but it's impossible to
guarantee improvement in
clarity depending on the
severity of the macular
degeneration.
It is rare in today's age of
medical technology for a
cataract to require urgent
treatment. Those patients who
decline surgical ;emoval of
their cataracts should be reex-
amined every year, or sooner
if there is a noticeable decline
in their vision.

Valerie Moulds is a board certi-
fied optometric physician practic-
ing in Sebring and is Arizona
and Florida certified in diagnos-
tics and therapeutics. She is a
member of the American
Optometric Association, Arizona
Optometric Association and
Florida Optometric Association.

What can you do about
osteoarthritis?
Today, more than 10 mil-
lion Americans suffer from
osteoarthritis of the knee,
making it the most common
form of arthritis in the United
.States.
When the cushioning lay-


ers of cartilage within the
joint are worn down, the
bones begin to rub against
each other. This leads to
swelling and increased stiff-
ness and many daily activi-
ties become painful and diffi-
cult. But what can youl do to
protect your joints, reduce
the symptoms and support
your doctor's treatment?

tis can be viewed at

Friends & Neighbors


SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin

SEBRING Is your
Christmas shopping all done
for the year? Do you have a
hard time selecting a gift for
some people? One idea for
you is to give them a'member-
ship to the Sebring Recreation
Club for the 2007-2008 sea-
,son. Stop in at the club from 9
a.m. to noon and get your cal-
endar for the month at the
desk. See all that the club
offers and ask any question
about the club. You never
know who you all will meet. I
went in to see Ed, and Jacquie
Houston was on. While we
were talking, Tony and Harold
came in for this year's mem-
bership
Shuffleboard is starting to
get very busy in Sebring if
you so desire. December we
have two Highlands County
tournaments. One was on
Dec. 4 and the next will be
Tuesday, Dec. 18. It starts at
8:30 a.m. and bring your
lunch along. It would be nice
if every shuffler in Highlands
would make it and they
should. Entry fee is $5 for all
those that enter.
Everyone will have six 16-
frame games. Remember, you
must reside in the county or
be a member of a club within
Highlands County. The sign-
up sheets are ready for you to
sign up for the league.
You can now shuffle
Monday nights, except meet-
ing night at 6 p.m. You can do
nickel shuffle on Wednesday
or mini-tournament on Friday
at 1:15 p.m. Our most popular
shuffleboard game is ice
cream shuffleboard on
Saturday afternoons at 1:15
p.m.
Two more local businesses,
Pat Dell Realty and The Blue
Crab, are sponsoring the
Orange Blossom Tournament
this year on Jan. 2-3; The club


will be open for the Orange
Blossom early Jan. 2, so be
early, buy coffee and a dough-
nut and talk with friends.
Entry fee is $5 before 9 a.m.
The club will offer a very
good lunch if you want.
The sponsor money for this
tournament will be $300.
Have you joined Florida
Shufflers Association so you
can compete? You can join
this club and you will become
a member so you can com-
pete. Thank you to these nice
people for sponsoring the
game of shuffleboard in
Sebring.
Dec. 16 you can be with the
Bluegrass Travelers Band
starting at 2 p.m. A love offer-
ing is all they require, for they
enjoy playing for you. You
will have to find out about
line dancing, bridge, table
tennis, hobby club, pinochle,
.bingo, Christmas dinner,
Sunday entertainment and our
yard sale. You can find out
about any or this entire list at
our desk and the nice persons
that will greet you, George
and Carl, have started work-
ing on the upcoming -park
tournament on March 4.
John Bushee has shuffle-
board lessons and all the
'answers about shuffleboard
that you need answered.

"Free throws, free throws,

Avon Park's head coach

week, and the axiom held true
last Tuesday
Braden River night as the
57 Red Devils
lost 57-54
Avon Park against the
Braden River

overtime.
But this
time, both teams would take
advantage of their time at the
line.
The first period started off

"It could have been more," head coach
Paul Browxn said. "We had four one-
g on-ones with their goalie in the first
five minutes and didn't get any goals
out of those."
But once the scoring boots started
rk connecting they didn't stop until
three second-half goals ended the
match early.
Troy Talbert slipped one into the
net to open the second half before


Eric Kirby followed suit.

SEBRING The Sebring
Lady Streaks broke open a
close game with Palmetto in
the fourth quarter for a 50-44
district win.
Sebring closed out the
game on a' 15-8 run after
Palmetto took a 36-35 lead
with 5:58 to play.
Hannah Shoop lead Sebring
with 15 points. Chelsea Davis
added 11 for Sebring and
teammate Whitney Wells
chipped in 10.
Brittany Williams led
Palmetto with 14 points and
teammate Ashely Smith had
10.
"At halftime we talked
about two things," Sebring
coach Mike Lee said. "We
talked about defense and we
talked about experience. This
is a team with a lot of experi-
ence and we needed to show
it. It wasn't so much about
what we drew up, but about
seeing what we were doing. It
was about making good deci-
sions."
Sebring's wealth of experi-
ence helped
Sebring trigger the
S final run to ice

The home
Palmetto team went
4 back to the
4 4 paint as a big
part of that
run.
Wells scored inside to

Shoop then scored in the
lane off a pass from Davis and
Davis added a lay-up off an
in-bounds play.

against Fort Pierce Westwood's
Ken Berrios in 2:54 to put him in

with a penalty kick score from
Medina, putting the lead into
some doubt.
But scoring has been a sea-
son-long problem for Lake
Placid, and the deficit was
just too much to overcome as
they fell to 1-8 on the season.
"Two goals is a big

Braden River set the pace
hitting right away from out-
side the three point line.
Pirate Willie McNeal ham-
mered away from the outside
most of the night, and was
able to draw blood several
more times as his teammates
would pass to him in the cor-

All in all, the Pirates would
draw most of their points
from the outside, netting 15 in
just the first six minutes of
the game, leaving Avon Park
to struggle for an inside
advantage, netting just nine.
Braden River used their
overall height advantage to
keep the Devils from going to
their old favorite Cleveland
Nobels, who scored only
eight points inside the paint,
and forced Avon Park to rely
on the quickness of Virgil
Cooper who would drive the
lane for 12 points on the
night.
During the second period,
Nobles and Cooper would use
teamwork to bring the Devils
within three points and hold
them there for the next four
minutes.
But the Pirates were able to

Palmetto put 10 on the board
to knot the game at 33-33.
The teams were also tied at
the end of the first quarter 14-
14.
Lee had five or her eight
points in the second as
Sebring led 26-23 at halftime.
The win was big for
Sebring in the district stand-
ings.
The Tigers had defeated
Sebring in their own gym ear-
lier in the season.
"That is a real good basket-
ball team ,(Palmetto)," Lee
said." They are long and
quick."
"I think Palmetto's strength
is on the perimeter," he con-
tinued. "We talked about our,
big girls being our outlet. We
have to cut hard to open
places.
"Palmetto has a good
perimeter press and we have
been a guard-oriented team.
Our post players have to get

hitting six of their nine
attempts, but their diligence
paid off in the second half.
Braden River continued to
pepper the outside, but their
luck turned cold and the
Pirates were unable to capital-
ize on their shooting ability.
Double-teaming Nobles in
the first part of the second
half freed up a Red Devil
somewhere, and Avon Park
capitalized on their advan-
tage, passing to start another
short rally to bring the score
to 39-34 at the end of the third
period.
That's when the tug of war,
began.
Avon Park took further
advantage during the fourth
quarter of the man to man
defense and drove the lane,
using the fouls to feed the free.
throw machine.
Hitting five of their next
six attempts, the Devils were
able to pull ahead at one
point.
But with less than a second
on the clock, Braden River
drew the foul and Marc
McKoan netted them both to
tie the game and force the
overtime.
Going back to the outside
again, Braden River was able
to lead off the OT play with a
three pointer, and once they
were out in front used the
clock to their'advantage.
Keeping the lead, and forc-
ing Avon Park to foul to get
the ball back turned out to be
a losing game plan for the
Devils leaving the score 57-
54 when the overtime clock
ran out.

Lee saw good effort from
his team, but he also sees
room for improvement.
"I think 28 of the 32 min-
utes, we really played hard,"
he said. "There were some
spots when we didn't."
The Lady Streaks improved
their record to 7-2 overall and

lar results.
Avon Park held their own
for most of the night, but were
finally trampled late in the
third quarter by the
Okeechobee Brahmans who
walked away with a 56-47
win.
Not a district match-up, but
still a rivalry from way back,
the 0-5 Red Devils were able
to hang tight until late in the
game against the 5-2
Brahmans, that's when hard
practices and recent games
took its toll.
Avon Park led at the end of
the first period 16-12, but
struggled to keep out front
ending up behind 25-23 at the
half.
Using Nobles on the inside,
Avon Park took advantage of
his height and aggressive play
style during most of the game
assisting him in scoring 19
points on the night.
The Red Devils looked a
little leg weary as the game
wore on falling 46-28 by the
end of the third period.
Okeechobee changed up
and went to the inside to their
big man David June (44) on
the inside helping him net 12
points before the clock ran
out.
Avon Park's struggle with
free throws continued, hitting
just nine of their 17 attempts,
but luckily shots from the line
did not play as large of a role
as it did with their game
against DeSoto last Friday.
Nobles began a short rally
for the Devils in the last four
minutes of the game, but
Okeechobee went to double
teaming him and stopped the
short rally.
