Unprecedented drought expected


to plague state well into 2008


Associated Press/News-Sun
Surrounded by water
and historically noth-
ing more than a vast,
soggy swamp, Florida
seems an unlikely place for
drought.-
But the state has always
been a land of weather
extremes, thriving through
rainfall feast and famine.
These days, however,
South Florida is dissected
into grids of development
with major population cen-
ters pressed tightly up
against the Everglades.
Water has been diked,
dammed and diverted to
make way for man, leaving
nature in a state of distress.
Heading into 2008, South
Florida continues to see
unprecedented drought con-
ditions like much of the
Southeast. And the worst is
yet to come as the state set-
tles into a seven-month dry
season after two years of
below average rainfall.
The drought was chosen

A lack of rain has left many places in Highlands County

as the No. 2 news story of
the year for 2007 in a poll of
Florida newspaper and
broAdcast editors.
"2008 is going to be one
of the biggest challenges the
South Florida Water
Management District has
ever faced," said Carol
Wehle, executive director of
the agency charged with
managing water in the
region.
The district, which covers


most of Highlapds County,
recently approved the
region's tightest water
restrictions, limiting outside
watering to once a week ,
from Orlando south to the
Keys.
It is the first time the
agency imposed the severe
restrictions uniformly
throughout its 16-county ter-
ritory. The new restrictions

SEBRING Construction projects
popped up all over the district in 2007,
for the uneducated eye due to unprece-
dented student growth.
Instead the growth overseen by The
School Board of Highlands County was
the addition of teachers and class-
rooms, added to meet ever increasing
restrictions on class size.
This led to many construction proj-
ects in 2007, including the expansions
at Hill-Gustat
Middle and
Sebring High
schools.

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK The State Fire
Marshal's Office is investigating a fire
that inflicted extensive heat and smoke
damage to a church.
Avon. Park police officers and fire-
fighters received the call at 2:30 a.m.
Friday, notifying them of a fire at the
New Life Deliverance Church, 25 S.
Verona Ave.
First impressions were of heavy
smoke coming from the building, said
Lt. Steven Kempe of the Avon Park
Fire Department.
"The fire was under control in
approximately 10 minutes," Kempe
said, adding the damage had been done.
"Two rooms had flame damage and the
whole building had heat and smoke
damage."
The burnt, smoky smell lingered in
the area hours later, with vertical blinds
tinged from smoke littering the floor in
disarray.
The official cause was unknown, but
a poster at the church from the State
Fire Marshal's office Friday evening
said the fire was suspicious, suspected
to be arson.
To report information on the suspect-
ed arson and be eligible for a cash
reward, call (863) 679-4180.

Man arrested

with 244

prescription

pills
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.comn
AVON PARK A driving
under the influence arrest led
to more charges when offi-
cers found 244 prescription
narcotic pills .
Ash Kackley, 22, Lake
Placid, was arrested for DUI
at 11:30 p.m. Thursday.
A search of Kackley's car
after the arrest led to William
Gentry Jr. of the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office find-
ing a blue bottle containing
several pills, Gentry said in
his report.
The pills were identified as
30 mg Oxycodone, 15 mg
Morphine, and 30 mg
Morphine, Gentry said.
There were only nine of the
15mg Morphine pills, but
more than 100 each of the
higher dosage pills; Gentry
said.
According to the
Highlands County Clerk of
Courts Web site, Kackley was
arrested in January of 2006
for possession of metham-
phetamine and marijuana and
was on probation.
His Thursday charges for
trafficking a controlled sub-
stance, possession of narcotic
equipment, and violation of
probation left him in the
Highlands County Jail with-
out bond after his first court
appearance.
His next court appearance
'is scheduled for Jan. 23.

Conover memorial flag to

fly over Medal of Honor park


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING In years past,
during the month of January,
Highlands County proudly
displayed the American Flag
in front of the Government
Center to honor a fallen hero,
Richard Conover Jr. The bur-
ial flag was loaned to the
County by his father, Richard
Conover Sr., also a U.S. vet-
eran and an avid supporter of
Highlands County and the
.Highlands County Board of
County Commissioners.
Conover recently moved to
Clewiston for health con-
cerns.
The Veteran Services
Office, 7205 South George
Boulevard, will fly its flag at
the Medal of Honor Park from
Dec. 31 through Jan. 31, as a
tribute to Conover and his
son.
Richard Conover Jr. served

ing with helicopters in the
DaNang area in Vietnam. He
died in 2001 from complica-
tions of exposure to Agent
Orange, a defoliant used dur-
ing the Vietnam conflict by
the U.S. Military to rapidly
clear jungles and underbrush.
After his son's death, the flag
has been flown over the coun-
ty offices each January for the
last six years.
"We are grateful to all of
our veterans for their dedica-
tion and support of our coun-
try," Joseph Dionne, County
Veteran Services officer, said.
"Mr. Conover has been a gov-
ernment watchdog for years,
and we appreciate the support
he has provided the commis-
sioners. It is fitting that we
honor the Conover family for
their support."
A small ceremony is to be
held during the Veterans
Advisory Board meeting to at
3:30 p.m. Thursday.

Remember

. When The Word

"Service" Meant

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

most homeowners make when
selling their home, and a 9 Step
System that can help you sell
your home fast and for the most
amount of money.
This industry report shows
clearly how the traditional ways
of selling homes have become
increasingly less and less
effective in today's market. The
fact of the matter is that fully
three quarters of homesellers


don't get what they want
for their home and become
disillusioned and worse
- financially disadvantaged'
when they put their home on
the market.
As this report uncovers,
most homesellers make 7
deadly mistakes that cost them
literally thousands of dollars.
The good news is that each and
every one of these mistakes is
entirely preventable.
In answer to this issue,
industry insiders have prepared


a FREE special report entitled
"The 9 Step System to Get
Your Home Sold Fast and For
Top Dollar". This report clearly
identifies potential trouble-
spots, and lays out an easy-to-
follow step-by-step system to
help you get the most money
for your home.

message about how to order your
FREE copy of this report, call

starting to make a turn
upward," she said.
Burke emphasized that real
estate is "such a wonderful
investment. You don't really
lose when you invest in real
estate. Everyone needs a
place to call home, a roof to
put over their heads."
She said Highlands County
is a prime market. because of
the commercial growth that
is being experienced here.
Buying a $120,000 home
in Highlands County would
cost a buyer upwards of
$400,000 in the Dade County
area. And, Burke pointed out
the low interest rates that
allow buyers to invest in
decent sized homes.
Tampa and Miami led the
nation in September in the
decline of the value of sales
of existing homes from 2006,
according to an analysis by
Standard & Poor's.
In the Pjnhandle. the
states largest private land-
holder, St. Joe Co.,
announced that it was ending
its new home construction
efforts, laying off 760 work-
ers more than 75 percent
of its workforce and try-
ing to sell 100,000 acres of
its land.
Home sales in October
statewide were 29 percent
lower than they were the
same month in 2006, accord-
ing to data from the Florida-
Association of Realtors.
Florida lost 17,500 con-
struction jobs, the first time
that sector has lost workers
since 1992 according to the
Florida Agency for
Workforce I'nnovation.
Residents 'are also buying
fewer cars, jewelry and other
luxury items, a sign they feel
less wealthy, according to the
Legislature's Office of
Economic and Demographic
Research.
Yet for all the dismal
news, Florida's housing
decline is due in large part to
its unprecedented success in
recent years. Speculators
hoping to quickly resell
houses and condos have dam-
aged the market, as have bad
loans that have led to record


6 manatees

officials are trying to. deter-
mine if red-tide killed six
manatees this week in
Brevard County.
Wendy Quigley, a spokes-
woman for the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, says the ani-
mals are being tested. Water
in the area also is being test-
ed.
Through the end ol
November, red tide has killed
at least 46 manatees this yeai
in Florida.
Red tide is caused by c

foreclosure levels.
Economists and real estate
professionals expect the mar-
ket to begin improving by
mid-2008.
That's of little solace to
those trying to sell their
homes now.
In Sun City Center, Jan
and Dick Waldron are resort-
ing to all manner of market-
ing to try to get their home
sold: ads on Craigslist, put-
ting flyers in this year's
batch of Christmas cards,
even placing a "For Sale"
sign on Jan Waldron's car to
skirt rules against such signs
in her neighborhood's front
yards.
The couple built their two-
bedroom villa a year ago and
are trying to sell it without
the help of a real estate
agent. At least three dozen
other homes nearby are for
sale, Jan Waldron said.
The Waldrons want to
return to Pinellas County,
where Dick Waldron owns a


sheet metal company. He had
-planned to retire, but has
continued to work. The result
is 120-mile daily commute
and a $1,200 gas bill in
November.
Dick Waldron said the cou-
ple put $80,000 in improve-
ments into'their home an
amount they're willing to
lose to sell it quickly.
Pat Dahne, a Coral Gables
real estate consultant and for-
mer broker, said the old
maxim, "All real estate is
local," still applies.
Snaith agreed. "It's not
homogenous," he said. "It
really does depend on where.
you are in the state."
Dahne said it is not
uncommon in Miami to find
houses selling in certain,
desirable neighborhoods. But
"very close by, you'll find a
street with a ton of houses
for sales."
For many Floridians in
2007, the latter was a much
more familiar sight.

"We're going into a pre-

had in recorded history,"
Wehle said.
Lake Okeechobee, a back-
up drinking water source for
5 million people and the
heart of the Everglades,
remains at a record low.
Agriculture in the region has
already been forced to cut 45
percent of its water use.
The industry, including
sugar, peanuts and horticul-
ture, could see up to $1 bil-
lion in losses.
Earlier in the year, South
Florida was placed under the
most severe water restrictions
with many communities
forced to cut back outside
watering to once a week.:
Those rules were eased when
summer rains began, but the
region didn't see nearly
enough precipitation to carry
it through the dry season.
Year-round restrictions are
also being considered as

When washing dishes by hand,
don't let the water run while rinsing. Fill
one sink with wash water and the other
with rinse water.
Evaporative coolers require a sea-
sonal maintenance checkup: For more
efficient cooling, check your evaporative
cooler annually.
Check your sprinkler system fre-
quently and adjust sprinklers so only
your lawn is watered and not the house,
sidewalk, or street.
Run your washing machine and
dishwasher only when they are full and
you could save 1000 gallons a month.
Avoid planting turf in areas that are
hard to water such as steep inclines and
isolated strips along sidewalks and
driveways.
Install covers on pools and spas
and check for leaks around your pumps.
Use the garbage disposal sparing-
ly. Compost instead and save gallons
every time.
Plant during the spring or fall
.when the watering requirements are
lower.
.0* Keep a pitcher of water in the
refrigerator instead of running the tap
for cold drinks, so that every drop goes
down you not the drain.


experts warn drought could
become commonplace, at
least for the near future.
The water district manages
2,000 miles of canals, the
world's largest single flood
control operation. Constant
manipulation of water is
needed to ensure communi-
ties aren't inundated during.
downpours, farmers and resi-
dents have water during
drought and the Everglades
stays wet.
But there is little land to
store water for dry times.
Millions of gallons a year
must be flushed out to sea,
wasting what is arguably the
state's most valuable
'resource.
Water managers are work-
ing to build reservoirs to
store water but the projects
are slow-going as federal
funds lag and land prices
soar.
Meanwhile, Everglades
restoration is also at stake.
The state has cut off the
fragile ecosystem for with-
drawals of any new or addi-
tional water supplies, mean-
ing utilities will have to find
new sources of water to sup-


ply demand for growth. It
was the first time in history
that Everglades water was
deemed off-limits.
"It's critical that we
change our culture from that
of a wasteful society to one
that truly does conserve,"
said Jonathan Ullman, the
Sierra Club's South Florida
spokesman.
Experts estimate that half
of all drinking water pro-
duced in South Florida is
used outdoors to irrigate
lawns and gardens.
"Floridians have to under-
stand that big irrigated.lawns
or gigantic irrigated medians
can't be our future," Ullman
said. "We have to change our
ways."

saving tips available at www.wateruseitwisely.com


Check your water meter and bill to
track your-water usage.
Minimize evaporation by watering
during the early morning hours, when
temperatures are cooler and winds are
lighter.
Wash your produce in the sink or a
pan that is partially filled with water
instead of running water from the tap.
Use a layer of organic mulch
around plants to reduce evaporation and
save hundreds of gallons of water a year.
Use a broom instead of a hose to
clean your driveway or sidewalk and
save 80 gallons of water every time.
If your shower can fill a one-gallon
bucket in less than 20 seconds, then
replace it with a water-efficient shower-
head.
Collect the water you use for rins-
ing produce and reuse it to water house-
plants.
Divide your watering cycle into
shorter periods to reduce runoff and
allow for better absorption every time
you water.
We're more likely to notice leaky
faucets indoors, but don't forget to
check outdoor faucets, pipes, and hoses
for leaks.
Periodically check your pool for


leaks if you have an automatic refilling
device.
Only water your lawn when need-
ed. You can tell this by simply walking
across your lawn. If you leave footprints,
it's time to water.
When you shop for a new appli-
ance, consider one offering cycle and
load size adjustments. They are more
water and energy-efficient than older
appliances.
Time your shower to keep it under
five minutes. You'll save up to 1,000 gal-
lons a month.
Install low-volume toilets.
Adjust your lawn mower to a high-
er setting. Longer grass shades root
systems and holds soil moisture better
than a closely clipped lawn.
When you clean your fish tank, use
the water you've drained on your plants.
The water is rich in nitrogen and phos-
phorus, providing you with a free and
effective fertilizer.
Use the sprinkler for larger areas
of grass. Water small patches by hand to
avoid waste.
Put food coloring in your toilet
tank. If it seeps into the toilet bowl, you
have a leak. It's easy to fix, and you can
save more than 600 gallons a month.

One dead in vehicle rollover


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
A one car accident off
Bishop Dairy Rd. left one
man dead when the driver
plowed into a ditch.
Leroy Caldwell, 53,
Delaware, was pronounced
dead at the scene 6 a.m.
Friday.
The driver, Craig Pressley,
Delaware, was unfamiliar
with the street that connects
with, rbuckle Creek Rd. in
E iphlaind County.
iTustomed to the area
and with heavy fog in the



CRUCIAL
Continued from 1A

KLC students were drawn
from three local elementary
school populations.
The KLC teachers also
came from those three
schools, creating a unique
faculty mostly unfamiliar
with one another.
"The teachers have really
come together and worked
really well as a team even
though they are coming from
three faculties," KLC
PHncipal Andrew Leth-
bridge said.
Lethbridge moved from his
position as assistant principal
at Cracker Trail Elementary
School during 2007 to over-
see progress on the KLC as
the first day of school drew
near.
"One of the largest physi-
cal challenges was the cabi-
netry," Lethbridge recalled of
the final stage of construc-
tion. "Even for our initial'
open house the cabinet peo-
ple were moving their work
out of the way and then fin-
ishing it before the start of
school."
All the work was done and
professional by the first day
of school, he said.
The other challenge was
how 300 kindergarten stu-
dents would be transported to
and from the school.
Lethbridge allowed par-
ents to drop off their wee
ones at the door for the first
week, and was met with little
difficulty.
"The traffic layout worked
very well," he said.
Sending them home was
another challenge, because
students riding the bus had to
catch a bus at other schools
before going home.
"Coordinating with other
schools, that opened our eyes
a little bit and the second day
ran so much smoother,"
Lethbridge admitted. "Every
day after that got much
smoother."

notice a curve in the road,
causing the 2003 Ford F-150
to travel straight into a ditch
and overturn a half mile north
of Hicks Rd.
Two passengers were in the

injuries, while Caldwell was

Attend the Church of Your Choice!


SCrijhians 6:20, For ye
are bought with a price:
therefore glorify God in
1your body, and in you
Spirit, wlich are God's."
The price paid was the

blood shed on Calvary.
Christ gave His life, that we might have
life. WIithout the basics, we're like a ship
adrift, blown about by every breeze that
arises. To .hold steady throughout the
storm, as ship's got to be anchored to
something secure, something that won't
give way no matter how rough, the seas. We
are bound to be battered if we float

aimlessly on life's seas. le need an anchor,
something to hold firm and steady. The
Bible provides that anchor: We must be
anchored to the principles of the Word of
God, otherwise we'll drift amidst. As we
enter the New Y)ear, be sure you have your
anchor secured. Froh, n my heart to yours,
Have a Blessed and Prosperous New Year.

A look back at 2007 shows a year that went by quickly


Well, it seems like it was only yester-
day that I was trying to remember what
happened in 2006 so I could write a col-
umn on it. A lot of things seem to have
happened only yesterday, a feeling that
seems to get worse the older I get.
One thing that has been happening for
far too many yesterdays is the 2008
election. The candidates have achieved
what I thought was impossible they
have made a political junkie like me
sick of the whole thing. And worse, it
isn't over yet!
Yeah, things will tone down once
people actually get to vote and the con-
tenders start dropping out of the race.
We will then get treated to the losers
heaping praise on their party's candidate
of choice after spending all of this year
comparing them to Satan.
One thing that happened in 2007 is I
got a lot more cynical about the politi-
cal process than I used to be. It didn't
help that a lot of this year was taken up
with a discussion about illegal immigra-
tion, with anyone asking that the law be
upheld being labeled as racist. It's an
unsolved problem, and I'll probably
have something to say about it in the
end of the year column of 2008.
Meanwhile, we are still in Iraq. The
good rfews is less people are dying. The
bad news is it is still a political mess
over there. Maybe the losers of the pres-


miem

idential primaries should run over there
and give them a hand?
On a more entertaining note,, three
tales were completed. We learned the
fate of The Boy Who Lived as "Harry
Potter and the Deathly Hallows" was
eagerly greeted by hoards of readers.
"Spiderman 3" was greeted with mixed
reviews by the Ware household, with me
loving it and my sons deriding it as
"Peter Parker goes emo." Finally,
"Pirates of the Caribbean" finished (at
least for the moment) the story of Jack
Sparrow, Will Turner, and Elizabeth
Swann. Who knew a pirate in eyeliner
could be so cool?
OJ Simpson proved that some celebri-
ty crime suspects don't go away, no
matter how much you'd like them to.
Lindsey Lohan, Britney Spears, and
Paris Hilton made me grateful once
again that I've never had to try to raise
a girl. Anna Nicole Smith demonstrated
that almost anything can be made front
page news if the press keeps talking
about it over and over again.
A troubled student at Virginia Tech
killed 32 fellow students and gave par-
ents of college students more reasons to


lose sleep. A bridge in Minneapolis col-
lapsed, and we were glued to our televi-
sion sets as people were rescued by fel-
low travelers and bystanders.
Gas prices soared to new heights with
no signs of dropping. Iran's president
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad came to the
United States and spoke to Columbia
University, exercising the kind of free
speech most of his countrymen don't
enjoy. The debate on whether or not
Iran has nuclear weapons got both more
and less clear, with one report saying
Iran had quit working on their nuclear
program several years ago amid some
criticism. North Korea agreed to disable
its nuclear weapons, thus making the ,
world a tiny bit safer, at least for now.
Hurricane predictions were -proven
wrong for the second year in a row, and
most Floridians were glad of it.
Wildfires raged in California again,
which for some reasons surprised some,
at least if you watched the news cover-
age.
So now we're looking at 2008, with
more news, more politics, and more
oddball stuff to fill columns with.
Hopefully it will go slower or at least

seem to.

Protect consumers
against big cable
discrimination
Editor:
Many football fans in our
state already know that big
cable companies are taking
advantage of consumers and
preventing them from watch-
ing their favorite football
teams. How do they know
this? Because they are being.
charged extra for the NFL
Network or are blocked from
watching the channel alto-
gether.
Instead of carrying popular
channels like the NFL
Network, some cable compa-
nies are loading their sched-


ules with cable-owned chan-
nels like Versus and the Golf
Network, claiming that the
NFL Network is just a niche
market. Tell that to the 222
million Americans who
watched NFL football last
season.
The good news is there's a
way to resolve these disputes
through arbitration so fans
can see the programs they
want. The FAN (Fair Access
to Networks) Act would
establish a fast, fair and
cheap process so cable com-
panies doing business in our
state can't discriminate
against channels like NFL
Network and hurt consumers
in the process.


I hope my state representa-
tives will stand up for con-.
sumers and football fans by
supporting this common-'
sense solution. You can let
your elected officials know
you support the FAN Act by
visiting www.iwantmynflnet-
work.com.

Answering the phone
is a welcome treat
Editor:
I called the News-Sun
office recently and, to my
surprise and delight, a real
live person answered the
phone. When she transferred


my call to another depart-
ment, another real live per-
son answered!
Both ladies were friendly,
courteous and helpful. How
refreshing in this day and
age! Thank you, News-Sun.

Group at Mike Myers
great to work with
Editor:
Sometime ago I sent a bou-
quet in, but this is a new one.
Instead of bouquet, this one
is a bouquet of roses to Mike
Myers group for their good
service that they have given
me. They are the best in my
eyes.


Keep up the good work
and may your new year be'
the best one yet.

TUFFLEY
Continued from 9A
the horse riders closest, ATVs
in an outer orbit, all gently,
slowly, pushing the cattle
toward and through open gates,
while Edison and I, in a roof-
less, sideless, 4x4 Samurai,
were stationed at the back, cut-
ting off angles. That wasn't
always easy.
Bulls wallow in the sugar
sand trying to keep cool.
Being large, they leave large
holes behind. It means that rid-
ing through a bull pasture is
just like riding a choppy sea -
it is a very rough, up-and-
down, stomach-churning move-
ment. As if that weren't enough
- this being Man's Work in
Man Land when I reached
around to fasten my seat belt, it
was made clear that seat belts
are girlie'things for use only by
the timid. So I hung on with
one hand, and tried to appear
nonchalant while being thrown
wildly from side to side.
The cows were gathered in
small groups in a small holding
pen at the head of a long
(maybe 30 feet by four or five)
wood-slatted chute. There was
a metal release gate at one end.
At the other end, standing
between the steer or cow and
relative freedom, was an alu-
minum contraption with a head
guard at the front and locking
doors behind. It held one ani-
mal at a time. The sides, made
out of heavy-duty piping, had
sections that folded down, mak-
ing it easier to reach the ani-
mals.
First, we focused on the
cows receiving standard inocu-
lations. Pushed in groups of
five or six, they were urged
into the chute, where they
bumped against one another,

Ashley Booth and her fiance Chris Fluke, spent the day cutting
cows and steers out of the bigger herd and driving them into the
treatment chute.


some trying to press past those
in front, other trying to back
up.
The chute, although sturdy,
creaked and groaned, shud-
dered and shook as the heavy
bodies surged back and forth,
sometimes bellowing in fear;
their hooves ringing off the
metal.
Not all the cattle were emo-
tional divas. Some sleepwalked
through the experience. ,
In any case, this part of the
job went very quickly, the crew
having it down to a science.
Booth prepared the injections
in lots, using a spring-loaded
hypodermic needle held in a
hand grip.
As the cows stood in a short
row, head to tail, head to tail,
he would walk down the line,
sticking each in the rump. Mike
Edison, using a backpack reser-
voir with a spray wand, soaked
the back of each cow with a
wormer.
Booth let me vaccinate two


cows. He would have let me do
more, but I botched each injec-
tion, so he took back the hypo-
dermic. I misjudged the first
shot, pressing the hypodermic's
grip too soon, getting the medi-
cine on the cow's back instead
of inside her.
The next shot I got in all
right, but when I withdrew the
needle, there was a miniature
geyser as the medicine shot up
and out in a stream.
At the end of the day, when
Booth was doing his paper-
work, he paused puzzled for a
minute that the number of
injections and animals didn't
match up. Then he suddenly
looked at me and pointed, "Oh
yeah," he said, "you wasted
those two shots."
I proved to be better at
branding. The trick was to keep
the hot iron firmly in place
while rocking it back and forth
so it didn't stick to the skin or
turn the rump into a roast.
It was the smoke that got me.


The intense heat from the,
branding iron which makes
it easier on the animal creat-
ed molecule clouds of vapor-
ized cattle hair that absolutely
stank, and were large enough to
envelop my head.
I asked about micro-chips
and bar codes and scanning,
and was told it mostly was a
matter of money.
But with new federal regula-
tions coming into place that
will eventually require every
individual cow or steer be able
to be traced, ID technology will
soon go high tech. In the mean
time, Booth said, brands were
still the quickest and most reli-
able way to keep track of the
animals.
The most disquieting news
coming out of this adventure is
the fact that while Florida qon-
tinues to be a leading producer
of beef cattle in the nation, No.
12 overall, production has still
been sliding for a decade. For
example Highlands County pro-
duction (historically among the
top three cattle producing coun-
ties in the state Polk,
Okeechobee and Osceola being
the other major producers) fell
from 72,000 in 1997 to 63,000
in 2002.
Booth said you almost have
to be born into a ranching fami-
ly to find a way in. Part of that,
he added, had more to do with
*increasing efficiency and get-
ting more from each acre, but
part of it has to do with the loss
of ranches altogether.
It is good work, but hard and
very physical, and there is no
room for fantasies like
"Charlotte's Web", or
"Ferdinand the Bull".

New local surgery aorta

aneurysm repair greatly

reduces recovery time
By MATT MURPHY
mnatr.nmurphy@newssun.com
SEBRING When Dr. Patricio Rosa performed an
endovascular abdominable aorta aneurysm repair last
month, the procedure made local history. That's
because it was the first time the procedure, which
greatly reduces recovery time, was performed in
Highlands County.
"What's new here is that this is much less inva-
sive," Rosa said. Normally, it takes a patient seven to
10 days in the hospital, but with this procedure. the
time in the hospital is decreased to two days.
An abdominal aortic aneurysm occurs in around 5
percent of those over 60 years of age. Not all of them
need to be repaired, and some aren't because surgery
would be too risky.
Rosa sees around 30 cases a year, and the endovas-
cular repair procedure can be done in around half.
"Anatomical considerations" are why the other 50
percent aren't eligible for the surgery, Rosa said. The
procedure requires a segment of a normal artery
because the stent graft has to be landed there, and in
some cases that segment isn't present.
On the other hand, the new procedure is particular-
ly helpful to patients who might not be able to toler-
ate the regular treatment for abdominable aneurysms,
Rosa said.
Rosa moved to Highlands County from Fort
Lauderdale four months ago. He was educated at the
University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez, and did his
general surgery residency at Tripler Army Medical
Center in Hawaii.
He was recruited and brought in by Highlands
Regional Medical Center because of his specific
expertise in the realm of vascular surgery, and he is
qualified to perform the endovascular repair proce-
dure because of his board certification in vascular
surgery. Rosa studied vascular surgery as,his special-
ty at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in
Washington, D.C.
The abdominable aorta aneurysm repair is not a
new procedure, as it became available in 1999.
Previously, local patients had to travel to Tampa to
have the procedure done. But now, patients have more
options.
"People need to know that expertise is here, so why
go outside of town?" Rosa said.


STEELE
Continued from 9A
A monkey nearby sees
everything and thinks he'll
win a favor by putting the
stupid leopard straight. The


chihuahua sees the monkey
go after the leopard, and
guesses he might be up to no
good.
When the leopard hears the
monkey's story he feels
angry at being made a fool,
and offers the thonkey a ride


back to see him exact his
revenge.
The little dog sees them
approaching and fears the
worst.
Thinking quickly, the little
_dog turns his back, pretends
not to notice them, and when


the pair are within earshot
says aloud, "Now where's
that monkey got to? I sent
him ages ago to bring me
another leopard..."
Obviously the little dog
had no choice but to make a
risky play.,So he made a plan


and acted on it.
Let's be realistic. The dog
was lucky to have been found
by an especially dumb leop-
ard. But this story isn't really,
about dumb adversaries, it's
about the dog's spirit and
inventiveness. He took his


best shot without hesitating.
Is that how you approach
problems?

Dr. Kye Pahk on his


retirement. Thank you for


providing great care to


the iiatients of Highlands


County for 34 years.

Pause -and
Consider
Jan Merop

A story of

giving, faith

and salvation
Christmas gift giving and
receiving has quieted down.
Yet the celebratory atmos-
phere persists as we get
ready to welcome the new
year.
We've all sung the tried
and true Christmas carols
over and over and even
learned a little bit about
some of their origins.
However, we also need to
embrace the new carols that
come along especially
when the message inspires
giving, faith and salvation.
Christmas is a heart-atti-
tude that we want to take
with us each day in the New
Year 2008. And what better
way than to be reminded of
this than through a true story
that took place about 37
years ago. It didn't start out
as a song but has become a
meaningful Christmas carol
of our day.
Anyone of us could have
begn confronted with the
scene that this woman
observed. It was how she
responded that made the dif-
ference. It was a difference
that kept the spirit of giving,
faith and the eternal hope of
salvation alive and well in
the hearts of two youngsters
one Christmas.
As this woman stood in
line to pay for Christmas gift
purchases, a brother and sis-
ter ahead of her held a pair
of shoes with great care.
When the tired clerk
informed them that they
were $3 short, their counte-
nances fell. Panic-stricken,
the children didn't know
what to do.
Sensing there was more to -
their dilemma than just buy-
ing a present, the woman
gave the children the $3 to
pay for the shoes. Later the
children thanked her profuse-
ly explaining that their moth-
er was sick and would be
going to heaven soon; the
shoes, they explained, would
match the streets of gold.
The woman wrote' the
story for a continuing educa-
tion .class and it made its
way to a church newsletter,
various periodicals, the
World Wide Web, a book, a
song, and eventually became
a classic holiday movie.
"Christmas Shoes" is a
modern-day Christmas carol
that we would do well to
take with us into the new
year. It's about being sensi- .
tive to the needs of others; of
being generous; of having
the faith of little children;
and, above all embracing
hope because we know that
eternal life is attainable
through God's gift of his
Son.
The Bible is so clear
about this gift in John 3: 16,
NKJV, "For God so loved the
world that He gave His only
begotten Son, that whoever
believes in Him should not
perish but have everlasting
life."
I pray that the stories of
our lives and the songs that

Teach your children about the environment and make good stewards for the future


As we move into the new year I
thought it might be nice to think of
the way our children and today's
youth view us as adults. I have
heard people say that they can't
make a difference, that a problem is
just too big, etc.
I don't believe that and I teach
my son that one person can make a
difference, especially when the
environment is involved.
If you are one of those folks that
think one child or one family can't
make a difference, read on. If you
are one of the people that do
believe that everything we 'do can
make a difference, then this article
is for you as well.
Some of the littlest things that we
do in life can make a big difference.
As parents, we need to set a good
example for our children. As
employees, we need to show our
customers that we are conscientious
of our environment and as human
beings; we need to take care of this


earth since it's the only one we
have.
Also, wouldn't you like to leave
this planet knowing it was a better
place because you lived on it?
So what are some of these little
things that we can do and teach our
children to do that will make such a
big difference? Let's take a look:
Use a cloth bag to shop with
instead of continually using plastic
ones
Toss organic waste such as
your lettuce trimmings or potato
peels into a compost pile
Use less fertilizers, pesticides
and herbicides by using your com-
post
Turn off the lights when you
leave the room
Turn off the water when brush-
ing your teeth
Walk, ride a bike or take the
bus instead of traveling by car
Take faster showers or baths in
just a small amount of.water

Recycle
Let your
voice be heard;
write letters and
go to meetings to
voice your opin-


ion on environmental issues.
These are only a few things that
each of us can do to help the envi-
ronment.
Perhaps the most important thing
that we can do is make sure that our.
young people are educated about
their surroundings.
If they are taught from a young
age, chances are that they will grow'
up and utilize the good habits that


they learned from your example.
Take your children to your local
park and explain the role that nature
plays. Talk about the trees and
wildlife. Maybe you don't know
much about such things. Take some
time to educate yourself by reading
or researching on the Web.
It really doesn't take that long
and you may find yourself getting
very involved in the subject matter.
Your children will enjoy the quality
time with you and learn about the
environment in the process.
You may find yourself looking
forward to these times and discover
that being outdoors is very relaxing
and enjoyable.
Encourage your kids to get
involved in environmental issues.
Help them write letters to their
political leaders about the issues
they care about. Support them and
continually encourage them with
their efforts in. these areas.
The small amount of time you


take today will pay off in a big way
in the future.

Catching up on library news


My name is Deane
McArthur and every two
weeks, I hope to bring you
news and information regard-
ing this great organization
-whose goal is "to finance
events or buy items for our
Sebring Library that is not
covered in the county budg-
et," through the sale of used
books and magazines in our
bookstore. Sorme 90 percent
of our stock is donated by
the public and we are always
thankful for these donations.
We are fortunate to own
our used bookstore building
at 117 E. Center Ave. in
Sebring (just off The Circle)
and pride of ownership is
certainly apparent when one
steps into the store. In
September the store was
closed and during that time
the members did a wonderful
facelift inside the store -
new paint, decorations, histo-
ry panel and books relocat-
ed for easier browsing.
Membership to the Friends
is open to .-any individual,
association, organization or
corporation interested in the
purposes of our organization.
Dues are $10 a year.
Volunteers are always wel-
come and needed to work in
the store sorting, pricing,
stocking shelves and waiting
on customers.
We are a very friendly
bunch as I can attest to per-
sonally. I am a "snowbird"
from New Brunswick,
Canada and was introduced
to this bookstore by a good
friend the very first time I
came to visit her. Deciding
that I really liked the Sebring
area, I rented and then
bought a park model trailer
so I could spend my winters
here.

Tanglewood Cancer
Drive presents Paul Todd
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Tangle-
wood Cancer Drive will -kick
off its 2008 campaign by pre-
senting composer/entertainer
Paul Todd in concert at 7 p.m.
Thursday, Jan. 10, in the
Tanglewood clubhouse on
U.S. 27, one mile north of
Wal-Mart.
Todd is an internationally
known singer and keyboardist
who has performed both on
the Broadway and Las Vegas
stage and has opened for such
notables as the Pointer
Sisters, the Gatlin Brothers,
Rich Little and Joan Rivers.
His credits also include
two Broadway musicals,
including the annual presen-
tation of "A Christmas
Carol," which has starred
Wilford Brimley and John
Astin.
Admission is through a $10
donation. Tickets are avail-
able in the lobby of the
Tanglewood clubhouse from
8-11 a.m. Monday, and from
9 a.m. to noon Wednesdays
and Fridays. Tickets will also
be available at the door.
Contact Tom McKeever at
385-7316, or e-mail him at tnl
mckeever@embarqmail.com.


After visiting the store a
few times, I knew that I
wanted to join this group and
be a part of the functioning
of the store because it
brought back wonderful
memories of when I owned
my used book and ephemera
.shop in Yarmouth, Nova
Scotia. This time I would
only have to work three-
and-a-half-hour shifts once a
week as opposed to six days
a week, 12 hours a day!
Our store is divided up
into many cozy rooms of
books: religion, children, fic-
tion paperbacks (novels, war
and adventure romance in
their own categories), hard
cover fiction and topical non-
fiction e.g. sports, travel, his-
tory, classics, cookbooks and
gardening, etc.
Today I want to write
about some interesting ,
shelves of books just behind
the cashier's desk in the front
room. These books contain
the older, more collectible
books in both fiction and
non-fiction format and are
carefully researched by one
of our members.
One book I brought home
to talk about is titled "The
Life and Adventures of Jack
Philip, Rear Admiral,
U.S.N." and was written by
Edgar Stanton Maclay, pub-
lished by the American Tract
. Society in New York in 1904.
Our book is a second edition
and was re-written and
revised. This man, John
Woodward Philip, led .a very
interesting life, fought in
several battles, served on
such ships as the Wachusett
and the Texas and was
known as "a Christian gen-
tleman." There are 16 illus-
trations helping to depict this

interesting man's life. One
can find more information*.
about Philip on The Spanish-
American War Centennial
Web site at
www.spanamwar.com/philip.
htm. The book is in very
nice condition; some rubbing
on corners but it is a tight
and clean copy and is reason-
ably priced.
Another interesting book
in this section is,"General
Douglas MacArthur, Fighter
for Freedom," written by
Francis Trevelyan Miller,
published by Universal Book
& Bible House of
Philadelphia in 1942. A pic-
ture of MacArthur decorates
the front cover; many very
interesting photos illustrate
this man's military life. The
last chapter is titled
"MacArthur's Gallant Stand
Thrillsthe World," which
deals with the battle in the
Far'East, especially Bataan,
during World War II. The top
of the spine is a bit damaged
and the spine is soiled; other-
wise this book is in good
condition'.
Both of these books would
certainly appeal to the col-
lector of USA military mem-
orabilia a'nd are nice enough
to grace any collection.
Our group of Sebring
Friends volunteers had a very
pleasant Christmas luncheon
before Christmas and if you
are thinking of joining, be
assured that everyone is
friendly and you will make
some wonderful friends here.
Board meetings are held once
a month and all members are
-invited to attend.
Until the next time, Happy
Reading!

Streaks hold off Kissimmee Gateway


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The Sebring
Blue Streaks were able to
hold off the Kissimmee
Gateway Panthers in ,the last
few minutes of the eighth
game at the Jim Taveniere
Holiday Tournament to win
44-41.
"It was touch and go, but
we pulled it out," Sebring
head coach. Princeton Harris
said. "We showed a. lot of
heart to come back. It shows
we are getting
Sebring better every
4 time we play."
The Streaks
began the night
Gateway in man-to-
1 man, and
41 pressed the
issue as much
as they could
with their high intensity
defense.
Forcing 15 turnovers, the
Sebring netters were able to
finally put the Panthers away
in the final eight seconds of
the fourth quarter when Chris
Grubb's lay-up put the
Streaks up two, and then his
successful foul shot clinched
the lead.
The usually productive
Grubb would score just seven
points for the night.
Leading the Streaks in
scoring, senior Sam Robinson
would'pack away 20 points,
most of which would come
from outside the three point
line..
"When Sam is on, he's on,"
said Harris. "And tonight he
was ,bn. Sam had a big game
for us tonight. He stepped up
and told the team they could
stand on his shoulders, and he
produced."
Sebring led the ballgame
11-2 coming out of the first
period, but Kissimmee fought
back to take the lead 20-17 in
a short run right before the
end of the half.
Pressing their advantage in
the third period, the Panthers
stalled a short rally by Grubb,
and ended up still in the. lead
37-27 when the fourth quarter
started.
That's when the race really

Sebring's Sam Robinson goes up and under for two of his game-high 20 points in the Blue
Streaks win over Kissimmee Gateway Friday night in the Tavinare Tournament.


began for Sebring.
A couple of turnovers and a
three pointer from Robinson
put the Streaks back in the
ball game. ,
The trey tied things at 41-
41 when Grubb got his chance
to put Sebring back into the
lead. .
A little bit of ball fumbling
found Grubb under the net for
two, and drawing the foul'as
well.


Hitting one of this two
attempts at the line, Grubb
gave the Streaks the lead they
needed to hold off the
Panthers.
Gateway would have one
more chance with eight sec-
onds left to hit a three pointer
for the tie and overtime.
But steady pressure from
Sebring caused the three point
effort to fail capping the game
44-41 for the boys in blue.

of heart to come

back. It shows

we 're getting

better every time

we play.'

John and Daniel Bedell are at it again, contemplating some New Year's wishes


2008 promises to be a
great year.
The opportunities for us
older guys are booming.
I can look ahead into my
crystal ball and see some ter-
rific accomplishments.
I can picture Brett Favre
and the Packers shutting up
T.O., Tony Romo, and the
Cowboys.
Then in a major upset, and
a triumph to all middle-aged
men alike, the 38-year-old
Favre leads Green Bay past
the Patriots in the Super
Bowl.,
Getting the beat down by
old man Favre will leave
Romo and Tom Brady doubt-
ing themselves and looking
to filid other avenues for suc-
cess. I can see it coming.
Romo will be Bo Duke in the
next sequel to the Dukes of
Hazard.
Brady decided the NFL is
too much wear and tear on
him. He signs a contract with
Victoria's Secret to be their


John Bedell
first male model.
Also, the Super Bowl ads
could use some help from an
old school pair. McDonald's
could announce that they are
bringing back Larry Bird and
Michael Jordan for new com-
mercials.
Baseball could definitely
use some help. Major League
Baseball and the Players'
Association should sit down
with a powerful third party,
the American Association for
Retired Persons..
'The AARP could help


baseball overcome the steroid
scandal by requiring each
team to bring back a pre-ste-
riod asterisk star.
The Braves bring back
Hank'Aaron and in
September, he reclaims his
home run record from Barry
Bonds.
The NBA will be busy pro-
moting the playoffs in the
spring.
Of course, much will be
made of Kobe Bryant, the
youngest player to reach
20,000 points.
The Detroit Pistons could
counter that by bringing back
Bill Laimbeer and Rick
Mahorn.
After all, they probably
have 20,000 fouls between
them. Just imagine the
whooping those two would
put on Kobe the first time he
waltzes down the lane.
The November presiden-
tial election will also help us
See OLD, page 6D


Well father, you told me
that you came up with this
idea at two in the morning
and it's obvious that you
were delirious.
I shall humor you anyway,
since that is what you should
do to the elderly...er,
uh...your elders.
Seriously, what is it
with you and your "poor
middle-aged men" kick?
It is getting weird. You
middle-aged guys practically
run the whole world.
What more do you want?
As far as the'tax bonus
for driving a mini-van, if you
are willing to sell your man-
liness for a measly grand,
well more girl power to you.
And I don't want to know
how you found out about
Hannah Montana.
I'm hoping for your sake
that you haven't been watch-
ing that.
Tony Romo in The
Dukes of Hazard? Why, not.
He couldn't make those


Daniel Bedell


movies any worse, but the
Tom Brady thing is just plain
gross.
I saw Brady in underwear
one on Saturday Night Live.
It was funny.
I laughed and then I
blocked it out of my memory
until now.
I sure don't want to see
commercial after commercial
with the camera panning on'
Tom's legs and showing him
prancing around in angel
wings.
Why should you wish that
on anyone? Horrible!


Have you seen
Laimbeer and Mahorn lately?
If they tried to play Kobe,
they would die. They have
spent the last ten years grow-
ing guts and butts.
It wouldn't be pretty to
see, especially for the kids.
Remember your jerky heroes
how they were.
Watch their skinnier,
younger selves on YouTtbe
and we can both pretend you
didn't come up with this
idea.
The Bird versus Jordan
thing could be funny. They
could play horse from wheel
chairs, or bounce it off their
bodies.
"Off my beer belly, off
your double chin, off my
junk in the trunk...nothing
but net!"
The only good thing in
your crystal ball is bringing
Hammerin' Hank back to
take his record.

Devils downed by Panthers

Virgil Cooper drives the lane for two of his 19 points in Avon
Parks loss to Mulberry in the Tavinare Tournament at
Sebring Friday.


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING "I know we
can play better than that. and
-that's all I have to say." com-
mented Avon Park's head
coach Luther Clemons after
their 69-64 defeat by Mull
the Mulberry Panthers
in the .Jim Taveniere
Holiday Tournament U
Friday night. Avon
Avon Park's offense
struggled to keep up .
with the pace from the
onset of the game, and
several wild passes left the
Red Devils down 17-11 when
the first period was over.
Virgil Cooper, a senior Red
Devil, was able to produce 19
points off the aggressive play,
and was topped by his team-
mate Cleveland Nobles who
netted 20 for the night.
On the Mulberry side, the


bI

Panthers' towering Travan
Sampson would also net 19
points, and hit nine of his 11
free throws.
Getting organized and
aggressive, the Devils were
able to pull out the lead
erry two minutes before the
9 half was out, and kept
Mulberry from hitting
from the outside to fin-
Park ish the second period
on top 33-30.
Avon Park stayed in
the lead for the whole
third period, fighting
off Mulberry's attempts on
the inside, and disrupting
their outside game as well,
turning the game into a short
foot race with their 50-49 lead
entering into the final eight
minutes of the game.
Mulberry was able to net
the first two, in the fourth
period, but that's when things


seemed to get a little wild.
Both sides began to ignore
ranting coaches on the side
lines and offensive fundamen-
tals and play faced paced
aggressive street ball.
Neither Avon Park nor
Mulberry could get out of
front more than two points for
the first four minutes of the
fourth quarter of the game,
but their mad rushes back and
forth kept the defensive play
to a minimum.
With cries of "slow down"
from both benches, Mulberry
would enjoy a short rally in
the last two minutes of the
game.
Out in front 69-64, the
Panthers decided to finally
hold on to the ball for the last
seconds, and Avon Park
would not ,get a chance to
score again before the clock
ran out.


Homer's take Tuesday Night title


PATS
Continued from 1D
since the outcome of the game
has no bearing on their play-
off position.' Coach Tom
Coughlin hasn't said what
he'll do.
Belichick said he'll use his
players according to what he
feels is best for the team.
"This has been a very spe-
cial season," Tom Brady said.
"I'd hate to think that we'd go
out there and not put our best
out there this week."
The Giants would love to
stop New England from being
the first team to go undefeat-
ed in the regular season since
the Miami Dolphins in 1972,
who won the Super Bowl to
finish at 17-0.
They'd also like to keep
Brady from breaking Peyton
Manning's single-season
record of 49 touchdown pass-
es and Randy Moss from


passing Jerry Rice's mark of
22 scoring receptions. Each
needs two more. to set the
records.
"Nobody in the NFL wants
to see them go undefeated,"
defensive end Osi Umenyiora
said. "If they do go undefeat-
ed, they are going to be

known as that team that was
just that much better than
everybody else. I don't want
to see that." 4
The Patriots need six points
to break Minnesota's record
of 556 in a season set in 1998
when Moss was a rookie with
the Vikings. They've
outscored opponents by a
record ,312 points with a mar-
gin of 36.7-15.9 per game.
.They're tied with Tampa Bay
for fewest points allowed,
239.
"The good thing about
those records is all those did-
n't come against us," Giants
linebacker Antonio Pierce
said. "Those 551 points, those
-I


15 wins, that wasn't against
the New York Giants. This is
just one game. It isn't our
fault the guys before decided
to give up all those points."
The Patriots are trying to
make history. The' Giants
want to stop them.
"It would definitely help
just knowing that you're play-
ing a good team and having
the opportunity to end on a
high note," New York quarter-
back Bli Manning said. "The
outcome doesn't ultimately
matter, but you still want to
go out there 'and play good
football."
It matters to the Patriots
and all the fans around the
country who will be tuning in.
So what does Belichick
think of the widespread TV
coverage?
"We're just trying to get'
ready for the gamee" he said.
"I'm not planning on watch-
ing it."
