head fired

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING A week after being fired, the former Highlands
County Housing Authority executive director gave Florida Non-
Profit Housing a cashier's check for $4,000, a desktop comput-
er and the master keys to Hope Villas.
Gov. Jeb Bush appointed Kenneth Ryan Haynes to the
Housing Authority board in 2002. Two years later, Haynes
'expressed aspirations to be its executive director, according to
documents the News-Sun obtained from public records requests.
"To an extent it deals with the misuse of an account," Selvin
McGahee, executive director of Florida Non-Profit Housing,
said Thursday regarding embezzlement allegations against
Haynes.
Florida Non-Profit is a private corporation that provides tech-
nical assistance, training and consulting services to other agen-
cies who's goals are to provide migrant and seasonal farm work-
er housing.

than 24 young people and some of their parents three hours to wrap the gifts. 'We have it dow n to a sci-

Deputy mayor excited, confident about future

AVON PARK Brenda Gray
was re-elected to her seat on the
city council last month with the
largest number of votes cast for any
single candidate in that race.
She hopes this is a sign of a
community willing to work togeth-

African-American, pulled as many
white votes as black.
Coming to the News-Sun for an
interview she brimmed with energy
and confidence.
Improved city codes and better
enforcement topped her list of
important issues facing the city, but
they weren't what she wanted to
talk about most.


More important she said, was
engaging the community, because
it would take creative thinking to

"We need to put things out to the

"People have'good ideas, newer
ideas not saying we're going to


do all of them but communica-
tion is a key. We have to do a lot of
things together, we need to be fair
across the board." That can best be
done, she added, with citizen par-
ticipation.

that the city faces significant prob-
lems. For generations there has

VOLUME 25/NUMBER 30


I KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Retired Broward County school teacher/administrator Don Lind lets teachers know Wednesday evening
that he is proud of them for taking a stand during a public hearing at the Highlands County School
Board in Sebring.


By TREY CHRISTY
News-Sun
Believe it or not, teachers are
vehemently against a plan that
would fatten their wallets.
Well, only 25 percent of
them.
The Department of
Education hosted a public hear-
ing Wednesday to discuss the
new performance pay plan
called Special Teachers Are
Rewarded, or STAR.
The hearing was met with
utter disgust from Florida
teachers making the trip from
numerous counties around
Florida to the small board room
that was overflowing with emo-
tion as well as people.
"This will chase me right
back to Ohio where I get better


benefits and a $10,000 base pay
increase," an upset third-grade
teacher from Charlotte County
said. "This carrot that is being
dangled in front of us is rotten."
The plan would pit teachers
against each other for a 5 per-
cent bonus in pay based mainly
on the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test or other stan-
dardized test scores, utilizing
data of how students improve
on the test during the school
year to find the top 25 percent
of teachers to receive bonuses.
This poses numerous prob-
lems, according to the teachers
present, like the fact that while
all teachers are eligible for the
plan, not all teach in grades that

Airport board rezones 71 acres of undeveloped property


By MATT MURPHY
News-Sun
SEBRING Approximately
71.5 acres of Sebring Regional
Airport property will undergo a
zoning change, from a "Public
Use" classification to A-i
Airport District.
The Sebring Airport
Authority Board voted to
change the zoning of the prop-
erty, off Haywood Taylor
Boulevard, at Thursday's meet-
ing. The property is currently
owned by the airport but is
undeveloped except for two
tracts, used by Highlands
County Animal Control and the
Humane Society.
The airport would have to
rezone the property again in


order to sell it, attorney Bob
Swaine said. However, the
change to A-1 zoning is advan-
tageous because it will not
require a comprehensive plan
amendment and the approval of
the Department of Community
Affairs. Avoiding those two
steps should save the airport
authority between $15,000 and
$25,000, Executive Director
Mike Willingham said.
Willingham estimated the cost
of the A-i zoning process to be
around $1,000, comprised
mostly of staff time and legal
expenses.
The A-i Airport District zon-
ing can be approved by county
ordinance.
If the airport later wanted to


sell the property, the potential
buyer would have to tell the
county what they intended to do
with the property in order to
change the zoning. The airport
authority could write a require-
ment for the buyer to pay the
approximately $25,000 in
rezoning fees into the buying
agreement.
Also at Thursday's meeting
the SAA Board:
Approved a policy for
assisting tenants in acquiring
property insurance.
At its October meeting, the
board discussed the issue of
helping tenants to secure insur-
ance if the tenant is unable to
find coverage at a reasonable
price on their own. The policy


Aktion at Nu-Hope





A l". ,
'J s t

"xdBls


was reviewed by Al Waters
from Risk Management Inc.,
and his recommendations were
put into the policy.
Board Chairman John Clark
wanted it made clear in the con-
tract that the airport authority
does not have to help tenants if
the situation is not workable.
Language in the policy said the
final decision on whether or not
to pursue insurance for the ten-
ant is clearly the choice of the
airport authority and board.
According to the policy, the
tenant must obtain quotes from
three different insurance com-
panies. The tenant would be
responsible for the entire cost of
the coverage. The SAA will


charge the tenant a $500 admin-
istrative fee for "staff process-
ing time" that would be non-
refundable and collected in
advance.
Approved a resolution
requiring all tenants to secure
their property inside the air-
port's buildings prior to adverse
weather conditions, including
hurricanes and "other high wind
events."
The airport will be putting
bracing and struts on the air-
port's existing commercial
hangar (Building 103) and will
require tenants to install them
before bad weather hits.
Approved a mowing and
landscape contract with


McLane's Country Gardens.
The bid, in the amount of
$123,400, was awarded to
McLane's at the board's Nov.
16 meeting.
The contract will start Jan. 1,
and will last for three years with
an option to extend the contract
for two more one-year terms.
Approved a temporary
event lease agreement for the
Sport Pilot Expo. Willingham
said the terms of the lease were
"fairly consistent" with the air-
port's past lease for the event
with the Sebring Chamber of
Commerce.
The Sport Pilot Expo will be
held at the airport Jan. 11-14.


Water district suspends equine


use at Hickory Hammock


Special to the News-Sun
As a precautionary measure
due to the current equine herpes
outbreak, the South Florida
Water Management District is
temporarily prohibiting all
equine uses at DuPuis
Management Area and Hickory
Hammock Wildlife
Management Area until further
notice.
Effective immediately, trail
riding, off-trail riding and
overnight boarding of horses
are all restricted on these partic-
ular properties. The district's
actions are consistent with


advice and direction provided
by officials responsible for
monitoring and controlling the
highly-contagious virus.
All other public uses contin-
ue to be available and are unaf-
fected by the equine restric-
tions.
According to www.pet-
caretips.com, the equine herpes
virus, or equine rhinopneu-
monitis virus, or EHV, is a
highly infectious viral disease.
EHV-1 can cause abortion,
respiratory disease and paraly-
sis. EHV-4 can also cause abor-


tion but usually causes only res-
piratory disease.
The virus can survive for 14 -
45 days in the environment and
is spread via the respiratory
tract or from aborted fetuses,
membranes and fluid.
The DuPuis Management
Area is in western Martin
County; Hickory Hammock is
in Highlands County.

South Florida Water
Management District's
Recreational Hotline at 1-866-

The tactical team headed by
Lt. James McGann was able to
arrest Maklavius Dion "Hot
Hat" Hill, 18, thanks to the
"harmonious relationship
between the community and
law enforcement," Benton said
in a press release.
Hill was developed as a sus-
pect in the Oct. 18 shooting in
Highway Park.
One man was shot in his
abdomen, Benton said, and the
other "narrowly missed being
shot in the leg."
The victims are not residents
of Highlands County, the sher-
iff said.


A warrant for Hill's arrest
was issued Dec. 1.
"The arrest of Maklavius Hill
is a testimony to the success our
community and law enforce-
ment share in our unrelenting
efforts to make Highlands
County safer for us all," Benton
said in her press release.
She encouraged the public to
take advantage of the Heartland

Remember
When The Word

"Service" Meant

. Something?
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
specialized services, such as out-of-town
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.

' M Gift cards help with gift buying


GEORGIA DAWKINS/News-Sun
Melissa Mygatt, a cancer survivor of 17 years, made and sold Christmas ornaments this year, raising
funds for Relay for Life. Though the ornaments sold quickly this year, Mygatt and other members of her
team plan to offer them again in July. 'We're going to do a Christmas in July with a tropical theme,' she
said. All proceeds from the ornament sales go to benefit Relay for Life.



Ornament sales help raise


funds for Relay for Life


By GEORGIA DAWKINS
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING What started
off as a fund-raiser for Rely For
Life escalated into something
greater after many received
word about the efforts of one
woman.
Melissa Mygatt is a breast
cancer survivor of 17 years. "I
came home from the hospital on
Christmas day," Mygatt said.
Mygatt is also a financial
counselor at Highlands
Regional Medical Center and a
member of the Relay For Life
team. In October, the team
decided to sell Christmas orna-
ments as a fund-raiser. "I don't
remember how it started, but I
thought, thOi is great; let's do.
it," said Mlygatt. ho suggested


the ornaments be customized.
The ornaments consist of
clear balls, fake snow in the
bottom, fishing line, and purple
disks, which is the Rely For
Life color. To personalize the
ornaments, Mygatt inscribes
names on the purple disks,
which have to be rolled to fit
inside the clear balls. "The clear
balls have sharp edges, which
sometimes tear the the disks,"
Mygatt said.
Mygatt originally began sell-
ing the ornaments to her col-
leagues, but when the public
heard about the project, they
began purchasing ornaments as
well. She has received calls
trom people all oer commend-
ing her efforts.


Mygatt, however, is quick to
say she.did not do it alone.
Caroline Miller is a col-
league of Mygatt's and con-
tributed to the project a great
deal. "I found the clear orna-
ments, figured how to make
them, and I help decorate the
tree," Miller said.
"It has been a lot of fun and
there has been a phenomenal
response," Mygatt said. The
project was so successful that it
will continue in the summer.
"We are going to do
Christmas in July with a tropi-
cal theme," she said.
"When I was diagnosed with
breast cancer, I thought, why
me and now I kn6o. It" was to
help other people!." .--. .. "

It's that time of year again
when you see all the stores and
houses in the neighborhood lit
up with lights. You hear the
classical Christmas music and
you can just know that it's
Christmas time. We prepare
with getting a schedule of when
we'll get together with family
members and the children make
their wish list for their parents
and Santa.
Every year after
Thanksgiving, people all over
the country wake up before the
sun rises and rush to department
stores to get the "door busters"
and to find the best deals on the
year's hottest gifts. Some of the
most wanted gifts this year
include a Sony Playstation 3
(PS3), Xbox 360, digital cam-
eras, video/computer games,
plasma TVs, iPod, and T.M.X.
Elmo, just to name a few.
If you can't decide on a gift
to give someone, the best alter-
native is a gift card. Let them be
the ones to choose what they
really want instead of having to
go through the trouble of cus-
tomer service. The most in-
demand gift cards this season
are: iTunes, Wal-Mart, Home
Depot, Lowe's, Starbucks, and
BestBuy.

Shuttle returns
to Canaveral
Associated Press
CAPE CANAVERAL -
Space shuttle Discovery and its
seven astronauts safely
returned to Earth on Friday
after some last-minute sus-
pense over which landing site
to use, closing out a year in
which NASA finally got con-
struction of the international
space station back on track.
Its arrival announced by its
signature twin sonic booms, the
spaceship touched down on a
floodlit runway in the early
evening darkness after a
smooth, 13-day flight during
which the astronauts rewired
the space station and delivered
U.S. astronaut Sunita "Suni"
Williams to the orbiting outpost
for a six-month stay.


Even though the younger
family members only focus on
getting gifts this holiday, many
of us remember the greatest gift
the world has ever received and
celebrate it by giving to others
and having them feel our love
towards them coming from
receiving the present.
Keeping family traditions


alive can be difficult especially
with the distraction of these lav-
ished gifts, but it shows the
other person how much they're
cared for.
So whichever holiday you
plan to celebrate this season
these gift ideas should help you
choose which gift is the perfect
one for that special someone.

Kansas attorney general files criminal

charges over late-term abortions


100 and still growing

I L BW


Judge rejects

charges

By ROXANA HEGEMAN
Associated Press
WICHITA, Kan. -
Kansas' attorney general, a
vocal abortion opponent,
charged a well-known abortion
provider with illegally perform-
ing late-term abortions, but a
Sedgwick County judge on
Friday threw out the charges
after less than a day.
Judge Paul W. Clark dis-
missed the charges against Dr.
George Tiller at the request of
Sedgwick County District
Attorney Nola Foulston, who
said her office had not been
consulted by Attorney General
Phill Kline.
Clark signed his one-page
order only hours after Kline's
complaint against Tiller was
unsealed.
Kline's office did not imme-
diately return calls seeking
comment but scheduled a news
conference for Friday after-
noon. The attorney general lost
his re-election bid in November
and leaves office in three
weeks.
Most of the 30 misdemeanor
counts Kline filed against Tiller
involve abortions performed on
patients 17 or younger, includ-
ing a 10-year-old, according to
the criminal complaint unsealed
Friday in Sedgwick County
District Court.
Tiller's clinic, known for
being one of the few in the
country to perform late-term
abortions, has been a high-pro-


file target of anti-abortion pro-
testers for decades. The clinic
was bombed in 1985, and Tiller
was shot in both arms by a pro-
tester in 1993.
Kline has been investigating
whether Tiller and other abor-
tion providers performed illegal
late-term abortions in Kansas or
failed to report suspected child
abuse as required by law.
He waged a two-year legal
battle before finally this year
obtaining the records of 90
patients from Tiller's Wichita
clinic and a clinic operated in
Overland Park by Planned
Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-
Missouri.
Since the election, abortion
rights activists have expected
him to move against Tiller and
perhaps Planned Parenthood, as
well.
Under Kansas law, if a
woman wants to obtain an abor-
tion after the 22nd week of her
pregnancy, a doctor must first
determine whether the fetus can
survive outside the womb. If
the fetus is viable, the proce-
dure can be used only to pre-
serve her physical or mental
health.
Kline accused Tiller of
improperly finding that some
patients' mental health would
be seriously harmed if they did
not have abortions. Also, Tiller
attorney Dan Monnat said,
Kline accused Tiller of "hyper-
technical" violations of a law
requiring reports on late-term
abortions to the state.
Tiller and Planned
Parenthood have repeatedly
said that they have committed
no wrongs and that the patient


Court cuts oil spill judgment a


By DAVID KRAVETS
AP Legal Affairs
SAN FRANCISCO -A fed-
eral appeals court on Friday cut
in half a $5 billion jury award
for punitive damages against
Exxon Mobil Corp. in the 1989
Valdez oil spill that smeared
black goo across roughly 1,500
miles of AiJa ancoastli he b".
- Th&ie one of to!.e pa u n '
longestirunning, non-criminal
legal disputes, stems from a
1994 decision by an Anchorage
jury to award the punitive dam-
ages to 34,000 fishermen and
other Alaskans. Their property
and livelihoods were harmed
when the Valdez oil tanker
struck a charted reef, spilling 11
million gallons of crude oil.
It's the third time the 9th U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals court
ordered the Anchorage court to
reduce the $5 billion award, the
nation's largest at the time, say-
ing it was unconstitutionally


excessive in light of U.S.
Supreme Court precedent.
This time, in its 2-1 decision,
the court ordered a specific
amount in damages, while its
previous rulings demanded a
lower court come up with its
own figures.
"It is time for this protracted
litigati'.ro end." Chief Judge -

ing damages to $4 billion.

again appealed.
The following year, the-
appeals court ordered Holland
to revisit his, decision, this time
balancing it against a new 2003

punitive damages usually could
not be more than nine times

"We also intend to explore

for his malicious actions," '
Monnat said. "Rather than exe-'
cuting his duty as a prosecutor
to see that justice is done, he
has chosen to engage in a mali-
cious and spiteful prosecution
on the eve of Christmas."
Foulston argued in her
request to have the charges dis- (

Top 10 tips for obtaining


financial fitness in new year


Make retirement

resolutions for 2007
Special to the News-Sun
As the season of spending comes to a close,
local financial planning firm Statler Financial
Services reminds everyone to save in 2007 and
reap the gift of financial security in the future.
"Almost 45 percent of working-age house-
holds are "at risk" of being unable to maintain
their pre-retirement standard of living in retire-
ment," according to the National Retirement
Index, Center for Retirement at Boston College.
Why is retirement planning such a daunting
task?
Most people don't create a plan for their gold-
en years. "Retirement planning may not seem
like a major concern to most now, however, fac-
tors such as rising health care costs, longevity,
inflation, along with managing debt and invest-
ment risks should be considered now, especially
at the start of a new year. By creating a retirement
resolution plan, one can help ensure that they will
not endure financial hardships in the future, a
reality that is currently affecting millions of
retirees," stated Phillip Statler, wealth manager,
registered investment advisor, and licensed
enrolled agent (tax advisor).
As painful as it might be to save, a dollar saved
today could equate to hundreds in the future, and
a financially secure retirement. As American's
across the country get ready implement their
yearly New Year Resolutions for health, wellness
and more, Statler of Highlands County based
Statler Financial Services offers tips for obtaining
financial fitness in 2007.

10 tips for financial fitness in 2007
1. Know your retirement needs and set a goal.
2. Find out about your Social Security benefits,
and how your benefits contribute to your goal.
3. Learn about your employer's retirement,

pension, or profit sharing plan, and how that con-
tributes to your goal.
4.. Manage your credit and debt. Create a
household budget and a plan for paying off high
interest credit accounts this year.
5. Budget money to put into an IRA savings
plan each month.
6. Leave your savings alone this year and only
use in legitimate emergencies.
7. If you haven't already, sign up for 2007
401(k) contributions and, if applicable, make
sure to take your required minimum distributions
(otherwise you will be penalized).
8. Double check that your will and life insur-
ance policies are accurate and in place. If you
don't have them, get them.
9. Get (and stay) organized in 2007. Set your
budget, allocating funds each month to put into a
retirement account. It's much easier if you have a
plan.
10. Even if you haven't started planning
before, start now no matter what age you are.
The sooner you begin; the better off you will be
in retirement. Ask questions and seek profession-
al counsel if you need guidance. That's what
they're there for.
Additionally, if you're looking for more
detailed information on how one can obtain
financial fitness in 2007, Statler can assist with
providing information on the following topics:
Why can't people solely rely on Social
Security or pensions for their retirement income?
What can people do today to ensure they
will have the lifestyle in retirement that they've
grown accustomed to today?
How can future retirees "catch-up" their
retirement saving if they started planning late?

STARS
Continued from 1A
are tested by the FCAT.
This means more testing for
already "over tested" students, a
Charlotte High School teacher
said.
The STAR plan doesn't cover
the cost of additional testing,
just bonus pay for teachers. Any
additional money spent to eval-
uate student achievement would
have to come from local school
funds.
"We think there is a way to
make a performance plan work
if it is developed locally and


fully funded," Florida
Education Association service
unit director Michael Bernier
said in a press release last week.
"We are being threatened by a
loss of lottery funds if we don't
comply with the DOE require-
ments, but the STAR plan is so
riddled with problems that in
the end no one wins."
Part of the legislation passed
forces each county in Florida to
adopt some type of perform-
ance pay plan, but if counties
don't follow the STAR guide-
lines to develop such a plan,
they are not eligible for the
almost $150 million set aside
for the program statewide.


The deadline for a county's
application to get into the STAR
program is Sunday, Dec. 31.
If a county misses the dead-
line to apply for the plan, which
includes setting rules to evalu-
ate non-FCAT tested students
and instructional personnel not
teaching FCAT subjects, they
miss out on the money.
While Highlands County
Superintendent Wally Cox is
unsure of whether or not the
district will adopt a plan based
on STAR guidelines, he said
that an application has been
sent in to meet the deadline so
the county does not miss out on
potential STAR funds.


The STAR plan may sound
complicated. Even teachers at
the meeting were confused
while the teacher evaluation
process was discussed.
Teachers' scores are deter-
mined by a value table where
their students are placed on six
different achievement levels
based on the previous year's
FCAT or other test scores.
Teachers gain points for stu-
dents that move up, and lose
points for students that move
down based on end-of-the-year
FCAT scores.
High achieving students con-


tinuing to test at the same high
level can even be worth a cer-
tain number of points.
This may seem fair at first
glance, but Highlands County
Exceptional Student Education
teacher Jean Federico looked at
the table in depth and didn't like
what she found.
"Based on the value table my
(ESE) students start out so low
that if they all gain from a low
level to a slightly higher level, I
get about half the points a
teacher instructing gifted stu-
dents would get from teaching
the same number of higher level


kids if they stay at the same
level," Federico told those in
attendance at Wednesday's
meeting.
After the quick two-hour
meeting, teachers were left with
more questions than answers as
they were cut off due to a strict
time being followed for the
public hearing.
Teachers and administration
will have two other chances to
voice their opinions at hearings
in January before final STAR
plans have to be submitted by
each district independently by
March 2007.

$3,000 for its services, which
the Housing Authority pays via
a $9,000 allocation from the
Highlands County Board of
County Commissioners.
Reached for comment
Friday, Haynes said he resigned
about the same time the
Housing Authority board decid-
ed to terminate him Oct. 27.
"It was really more than I
could handle," Haynes said,
returning a message left for him
with a Sebring pest control
business.
In a Nov. 3 e-mail to
Highlands County's housing
coordinator Penny Phillippi,
farm worker specialist Santos
G. De La Rosa, of Florida Non-
Profit, attached a five-page doc-
ument titled "FNPH's Point of
View & Chronological History
of Highlands County Housing
Authority's Line of Credit."
The document details
Haynes' appointment, the cre-
ation of a $50,000 line of credit
to buy foreclosed property and
an October phone call from
Southwind Management about
a notice of "delinquent interest"
on the line of credit.
During an emergency "spe-
cial call" meeting Oct. 4,
McGahee asked Haynes to-
explain and provide documen-
tation authorizing the line of
credit.
"Ryan said it had been taken
care of," the Florida Non-Profit
document said. "Santos
informed Ryan that Southwind
Management needed documen-
tation that Hope Villas was not
in any way, shape or form used
as collateral on the line of cred-
it."
Southwind, which runs Hope
Villas, threatened to disclose
this incident to the Housing
Authority's auditor if the
migrant housing community
was put up as collateral.
"Ryan said he would take
care of it," the document said.
"Ryan came to FNPH's office
(Oct. 10) and told Santos that
the issue about Hope Villas
being tied to the line of credit
had been resolved with
Southwind."
After he left the office,
according to Florida Non-Profit
staff, Southwind faxed a bank
statement showing a
$44,407.52 balance on the
$50,000 line of credit, from
which the housing board had
not approved expenditures.
"FNPH's personnel were in
shock," the document said.
'That line of credit was com-
pletely satisfied by me,"
Haynes said, before ending the
five-minute phone interview.
"I'm finished talking."
McGahee said Haynes
became the Housing
Authority's executive director
in February 2005.
"If successful, it would have
led to some paid staff posi-
tions," McGahee said of
Haynes' effort to establish a
U.S. Department of Agriculture
Mutual Self-Help office in
Highlands.
Till then, Haynes was a vol-
unteer director who didn't draw
a salary.
"The Housing Authority did-
n't have a checking account,"
Haynes said, explaining what
he did with a $4,000 check that
the authority's board reported it
hadn't received from
Southwind. "Instead of walking
around with cash, I deposited it
into a separate checking
account."
Haynes told the News-Sun
the account was at Highlands
Independent Bank.
'They check was wrote to me
;' for services I rendered," he
said.
When questioned about his

The following timeline was derived from a Florida Non-Profit
Housing Incorporated document generated about Nov. 1 and
delivered to Highlands County administration regarding
alleged embezzlement by the former Highlands County
Housing executive director:

Jan. 24, 2005, Housing Authority board minutes -
Haynes discussed building the agency's credit for future ben-
efit.
Feb. 28, 2005, Housing Authority board minutes -
Haynes presented a resolution to the board for review but no
action was taken; the board elected him as executive director;
and voted to purchase foreclosed properties for rehab.
March 28, 2005, Housing Authority board minutes -
Attorney Cliff Ables, referencing a line of credit, recommended
a resolution authorizing Housing Authority to pursue fore-
closed properties.
Highlands County administration reminded the Authority
that 2005/2006 budget requests were due; on Haynes' motion,
the housing board agreed to request a $50,000 budget
Florida Non-Profit staff notes indicated the line of credit
was opened March 29, 2005, and paid in full Oct. 23, 2006.
Staff notes indicated the line of credit for buying fore-
closed properties was not discussed after March 28.
On or about Oct. 1, fiscal discrepancies began to surface.
Oct. 27 Housing Authority terminates Kenneth Ryan
Haynes.
Oct. 30 Housing Authority informs that the board found
he used the line of credit without approval and cashed a
$4,000 check that was payable to the Housing Authority. The
board demanded he reimburse a $225 check and return a
"new" laptop computer.
Oct. 31 Southwind Management Services (which man-
ages Hope Villas) notifies USDA Rural Development about the
financial improprieties.
Nov. 1 Haynes returns a desk top computer, submits a
$4,000 cashier's check and surrenders the master keys to
Hope Villas (Southwind re-keyed the locks at Hope Villas).

been a love/hate attitude toward
progress that resisted change.
But now she senses a shift.
People are calling in. New ideas
and suggestions are beginning
to flow.
And there are concrete
advances, she pointed out, like
the impending arrival of the
Wal-Mart store and the jobs that
store will create.
All of that means she has
confidence looking into the
future.
For example, on the code
enforcement issue, she said the
city is taking logical steps to
clean itself up.
With three new ordinances
soon to be approved and put
into effect, landlords and prop-


erty owners will have to meet
higher standards of occupancy,
safety and cleanliness. To back
up those ordinances, the council
also approved more code
enforcement officers.
Gray strongly feels education
has to be an important part of
any long term solution.
Regarding city codes, she said
most people want to do the right
thing, but some don't know
what that is.
That didn't mean, she said,
that the city should look the
other way or be overly patient.
She felt, for example, that the
city should press for the demo-
lition of dangerous buildings all
over town.
There were two other issues
of concern to Gray. One frus-
trates her because it can't really
be addressed at the municipal
level, she said, referring to pub-
lic transportation.


BROTHERS
Continued from 1A
Albert H. Middleton said in his report. Kowalski
and Sandra Tilger worked at Sonny's Real Pit
Barbecue in Sebring.
Middleton said the Tilgers were northbound
when they side-swiped each other, both losing
control.
Kowalski and Lonnie Tilger were thrown from
the bike, which traveled into the path of an
oncoming Dodge van driven by Maggie Dawn
Webb, 18, of Lorida. Webb was not injured in the
accident.


One of the reasons Wal-Mart
is such a blessing to the city, she
explained, is that at least now
someone without a car has a job
opportunity they can reach.
The other issue is a matter for
the city council to address. "In a
few areas," she said, "there are
no street lights at all. It is just
too dark. What do we need to
do to brighten up the town?
Especially now when it gets
dark earlier."
Gray said she is motivated by
a deep love for Avon Park and
its people. She grew up here,
her father a field foreman for
Minute Maid. While she did
leave home for a career in the
army, "I'm a true Floridian,"
she said.
In addition to serving on the
city council Gray is a probation
officer for the county.


The van collided with the Yamaha then Lonnie
Tilger, Middleton said. Kowalski ended up on the
east shoulder.
Bruce Tilger continued north before his 2004
Kawasaki went down and ejected him.
Middleton said Lonnie Tilger and Kowalski
were wearing helmets but Bruce Tilger wasn't.
Whether they were riding staggered or side by
side before they crashed is unknown, FHP Lt.
Paul France said, explaining that Florida law
allows no more than two motorcycles to ride
abreast of each other.
He didn't know what their estimated speed
was. According to the FHP report, there was no
indication whether alcohol was involved.

Santa Claus


ToUFFRN IT

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


The gift of

generosity

My apologies to the Knights
of Columbus Council 5441 in
Sebring.
This week I had expected to
tell about a most enjoyable and
interesting evening I.spent
with them recently, at
Wednesday night bingo.
But between the time I visit-
ed them and now I have
played Santa Claus twice, and
spent time with a real life ver-
sion of the good Saint Nick.
My editor, aware, of these
outings, suggested I write
about being a Santa Claus for
this feature.
Only it seemed a little, let
us say, ill-timed, if we had you
reading about bingo on
Christmas Eve, and Santa
Clauses on New Year's Eve.
Then there was the fact that
writing about playing bingo on
Christmas Eve meant we'd be
gambling against Santa, which
is the real reason we changed
the order.
Anyway, with Christmas
carols playing in the next cubi-
cal and my editor wearing
reindeer antlers, I'm itching to
write about the wonder and
magic of the season.
After all, starting with.
Thanksgiving, and culminating
with the new year, it is a time
of refection, miracles and
hopee. e GIT

Old Saint Nick bears


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING -The story of Santa Claus
has grown out of many different back-
grounds, with twists in the tale as it
evolved.
According to most sources, Santa
Claus is an American version of the
Dutch character Sinterklaas. Sinterklaas,
in turn, is thought to have been modeled
on a Catholic bishop who lived in mod-
ern day Turkey during the 1500s.
There is disagreement as to whether
he actually lived or not, but a man called
Saint Nicholas was said to have been
generous and kind, giving away his
entire inheritance to the needy, the sick,
and the young.
Some said he tossed toys into chil-
dren's homes, through their open win-
dows as he passed by, which is one
explanation for the tradition of giving
away gifts at Christmas time.-
Many cultures celebrating Saint
Nicholas, generally exchange gifts on
his saint day, Dec. 6, rather than Dec.
25.
Worldwide, Santa is usually shown
wearing a red suit, or long coat, with
white fur trim. It is thought that that
stems from the bishop's robes Saint Nick
wore.
The modern vision of Santa Claus, as
round, bearded, and jolly, was set in the
public eye by illustrator Thomas Nast's
work during the last half of the 19th cen-
tury.
Abraham Lincoln had Nast draw ver-
sions of Santa Claus with Union troops
to boost morale during the Civil War.
Nast's drawings and the poem "Twas
The Night Before Christmas," which
was published before the war, did a lot to
popularize Santa Claus and the more
secular aspects of Christmas coming into
the 21.lih centl ry.
Ironically the poem is the focus of
intense debate,, as the man who has
claimed the credc'ir i tin; ii. Clement
Moore, may not have. Some scholars


KEVIN SHUTT/News-Sun
Santa Claus, otherwise known as Christopher Tuffley, gives his boss, Romona Washington, her Christmas gift. Note the smooth fit
of boot top and shoe, and that well groomed beard.


think Henry Livingstone Jr. did instead.
Southern cultures had a slightly dif-
ferent approach to the season that does-
n't include Santa. Perhaps because of the
greater influence of the Catholic Church
in the settlement of South America, the
legendary gift givers were drawn from
the Bihlc !i'ell I. Ihill tili.i from .a later
individual, lh ing the faith


In South American countries, the tra-
ditional day of gift giving is in January,
on All Kings Day, and the men who
bring the gifts are the Three Wise Men.
Here in America, Christmas wasn't
always celebrated. In the 1600s the
Puritans made it illegal to mention Saint
fichoas'. .name, People were.. not
allowed to exchange gifts or sing


Christmas, carols.
That is not the case today. Google
Santa Claus, for example, and there are
12,300,000 possibilities.
And in the city of Denver (the power
of Google) one company alone this year
(American Events) produced enough
Santas to cover 2,000 hold a gatherings_
and more than 5.000 house visits.

Opportunity knocks for


small business with


change in Congress


Politicians and
pundits are still pars-
ing the results of
November's midterm
elections, which
resulted in the
change of control of
both the House and
Senate. They're try-
ing to divine the THE V
meaning of this flip
in Congressional S
leadership and pre- Bus
dict the country's
direction leading up TC
to 2008. Stottl
But the most
pressing concern for
small-business own-
ers and entrepreneurs is what
the results mean for your busi-
ness. So let's put the election in
perspective.
The issues that threaten small
business' vitality didn't change
on Nov. 7. A change in
Congress didn't change small
business' needs: access to
affordable and quality health
care, the threat of frivolous law-
suits, the burdens of overregu-
lation and simplifying a com-
plex tax code.
A new direction in
Washington doesn't mean small
businesses can, or want to, pay
more taxes, be forced to buy
health insurance for their
employees, endure more regu-
lations and paperwork or suffer
more liability exposure because
of attorneys who use unscrupu-
lous tactics for personal gain.
However, this vote for
change does mean there's a
chance for a new dialogue
between the political parties
about how to keep America's
economy growing, and how to
support the independent entre-
preneurs who represent 99.7
percent of all businesses in this
country and more than 40 per-
cent of the United States gross
domestic.product.
Small-business owners have
made it clear they want a sim-
pler and fairer tax code, as well
as access to affordable health
insurance that provides choices
in coverage and cost, not
expensive mandates.
Entrepreneurs are also look-
ing for fair and cost-effective
regulations, with an enforce-
ment program by government
that is focused on help and edu-
cation rather than fines and
criminal penalties. They are
asking for a legal system that


I



ir

'e:


discourages abusive,
shakedown lawsuits.
Quite simply,
small businesses are
S seeking solutions to
the issues that con-
cern them, rather
i0.', than expensive gov-
ernment mandates.
ICE OF In the months
leading up to the
ILL election, I heard from
NESS many people who are
concerned about the
Id priorities of those
myer expected to hold
S leadership positions.
For example, one of
the first things that
the new House leadership
would like to do is to raise the
minimum wage, a move that
many small businesses have
consistently opposed as unaf-
fordable and a job killer instead
of a job creator. Several other
probable House committee
leaders are questioning the need
for permanent tax relief.
In addition, there's a huge
demand from organized labor,
trial attorneys, environmental
groups and others for legisla-
tion on a number of other
important issues, such as health
care. Most of this legislation is
not expected to be small-busi-
ness friendly. So we have our
work cut out for us.
But the next Congress also:
represents great opportunity.
There will be more than 50 new
members of the House and
Senate coming to Washington
in January. They need to learn
what's on the minds of small-
and independent business own-
ers, and to understand the
small-business position on key
issues.
They need to hear that these
issues don't have partisan
labels. One thing is clear:
small-business owners don't
care who addresses their con-
cerns. They just want our lead-
ers to help provide real solu-
tions. So as a small-business
owner, it's critical that you
speak up now and make your
concerns known to your elected
representatives. Your right to
own, operate and grow your
business depends on it.

Todd Stottlemyer is president
and chief executive officer of
the National Federation of
Independent Business in
Washington, D.C.


GIFT
Continued from 11A
At the center of it all, of
course, is the Christian celebra-
tion of Christmas and the mira-
cle of the Virgin birth.
But another secular, miracle
story runs parallel the
magic of how Santa Claus can
get presents to every child in
the world, in just one night.
The stories are not unrelated,
but I don't mean in the obvious
way that the Saint Nicholas
who inspired Santa Claus was
a Catholic bishop and exercis-
ing Christian generosity
(although of course he was).
I mean related in a deeper
way. In a way that transcends
words and ideas.
That's because the best of
Christmas spirit, the act of giv-
ing, reverberates throughout
the human spirit, regardless of
belief, or background.
Receiving may be different
culture to culture, in other
words, but generosity feels the
same everywhere.
There is something deeply
satisfying in bringing happi-
ness to other people, especially
children. Laughter is part of
the magic
Which may be why so many
people, well, overwhelmingly
men, enjoy taking on the role
of Santa Claus.
Take Sebring resident
Robert Ruiz, who at 17 has
more experience playing Santa
than most, and loves the part.
Since he was 5 years old he
has collected spare change and
taken in contributions year
round, to be able to cheer oth-
ers up at Christmas time. This
year he collected $900 to
spend. Stuffed animals, coffee
mugs and candy are popular
choices.
With friends he travels to
different doctors' offices hand-
ing out cheer and small gifts to
nurses and young patients as
he goes. Christmas Day he vis-
its the children in the area's
hospitals.
"So many people say how
bad life is," Ruiz said. "We try
to bring a little good. We're


about positively. I never want
to promote negativity, ever, no
sir."
Ruiz, who with his group 12
Tribe Family, also creates
Christian rap shows at his
church, the Living Water
Church of God, said "You
can't lolly gag around life. It's
for real. Live like it's the last
day of your life. "
I did notice though, that for
all his youth and zest, Ruiz did
not put on a Santa suit to do
his deliveries.
No, he wore shorts and a
loose T-shirt instead.
This was smart, as I learned
the hard way.
First of all, Santa suits, at
least the type I wore, are
sketchy at best, being a facsim-
ile and not the real thing. They
are also quite uncomfortable.
In the first place, they're
made of some kind of
unbreathable, synthetic fabric
that probably started life as a
tire in a third world country.
The jacket is a pull-over
shirt trimmed out in a faux fur
that tickles and leaves rope
burns at the same time.
The pants are like pedal
pushers for a gas filled balloon,
they only go to mid-shin.
That's because the suit also
comes with faux boots to go
with the faux fur.
The boots are actually two
cheap black nauga-hide cylin-
ders that you pull over your
feet. You tuck the ends of the
pedal pushers into the top of
the cylinder, and pull the bot-
tom of the cylinder in line with
your shoes, hopefully hiding
the laces.
The belt doesn't secure, and
kept coming loose, and the pil-
lows I used ended up sliding
down my pants, so.my thighs
looked like Popeye's, and my
stomach was concave.
The beard has an elastic
strap which goes around the
head and over the ears. It's
made of the same stuff as the
fur trim, and gets up your nose,
and also a little at the edge of
your mouth. I kept wriggling
my nose, expecting a sneeze.
The final touch, that famous
red hat, turns the heat quotient

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY/News-Sun
Robert Ruiz has been spreading Christmas cheer and goodwill for
most of his life. Now 17, since he was 5, he has saved his change all
year round, to be able to buy small presents for those children who
are sick over the holidays, and the people who help them. 'To see
these people so grateful.' he said, 'there's no way to explain it unless
you do it.'


way up. Within seconds, what
had been warm, but bearable
suddenly became down right
hot, I began to sweat, which in
that suit, just soaked me
through.
And the beard and the hat
were a little too big so they
slipped on my wet forehead,
where they didn't stick in the
heat, making me look like the
drunk Santa at the start of
"Miracle on 39th Street."
In fact, the only good part of
dressing like Santa was the
moment someone said, "Santa,
you're too skinny."
Trust me no one's said that
to me since I quit smoking.

AVON PARK Robert and
Judy Talley received a special
Christmas gift Thursday night
as the keys to their new home
were handed over to them.
The Talleys were the recipi-
ents of the 96th Habitat for
Humanity home built in
Highlands County. The land, at
319 S. Verona Ave., was donat-
ed by the city of Avon Park.
During the dedication cere-
mony Thursday night in front of
the Talleys' home, the Rev. Bill
Breylinger gave praise to the
city government and officials
for working hand in hand with
Habitat in providing housing
for needy families in the com-
munity.
"This is the most perfect
Christian ministry in Highlands
County today," Breylinger said.
"There will be a day when all
God's children will have a
descent place to live in this
county."
Breylinger, who is a pastor at
Resurrection Lutheran Church
in Avon Park, is a board mem-
ber of Highlands County
Habitat for Humanity. The
Talleys attend and were married
at the Resurrection Lutheran
Church.
Robert, who is blind, said he
could not see everyone but
could feel their presence during
the ceremony and was deeply
grateful for all those who gave
of their time to help build their
home. His wife also expressed
the same appreciation. They put-
in their sweat equity for their
home by working at Habitat's
resale store.

Other viewpoints

Incoming Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio is in
the midst of a spending spree before lawmakers convene
in Tallahassee. A $550,000 private dining room for
members and five new staffers earning more than
$100,000 each isn't exactly a fiscally auspicious start for
the House Republican leadership. Indeed, Rubio & Co.
appear to be behaving like their brethren up in
Washington, D.C.
The St. Petersburg Times reported that the West Miami
lawmaker has created 22 jobs, bringing the House staff
to 314 full-time employees. Thirty of those staffers make
$100,000 or more. Who says public service doesn't pay?
Certainly not Rubio, whose stated goal is to "make the
Florida House the host for the most vibrant competition
of ideas in the entire nation." To attract the requisite tal-
ent, he adds, "requires paying salaries competitive with
the private sector."
It's hard to imagine where the speaker got his compar-
ison figures, but it's inconceivable for Rubio's press sec-
retary to be making just $9,500 less than incoming Gov.
Charlie Crist. It's downright absurd to pay a House "par-
liamentarian" more than the state's chief executive.
Then there's that private dining room. This is a first for
the House, and it reeks of privilege and pomposity. No
one, including Rubio, has made a credible case for this
perk.
By contrast, incoming Senate President Ken Pruitt (R-
Port St. Lucie) is running a tight ship in the upper house.
There, 17 staffers make six figures, with most of them in
staff director or senior executive positions. Pruitt's only
plans for upgrading Senate facilities are $85,000 for
plumbing, repainting and recarpeting in an appropria-
tions office.
Pruitt also made an encouraging fiscal statement when
he appointed a strong fiscal conservative, Sen. Mike
Haridopolos of Melbourne, to head the powerful Finance
and Tax Committee.
"I want people to understand our motivations have
nothing to do with self-aggrandizement or personal pay-
backs," Rubio told the Florida Times-Union, apparently
with a straight face.
Talk may be cheap, but the speaker's actions definite-
ly are not.

An editorial excerpt from the Scripps Treasure Coast
SNewspapers.

Florida may finally be ready to give the way elections
are conducted the attention it deserves.
Gov.-elect Charlie Crist announced the appointment
this week of a seasoned election professional, Kurt
Browning, as Florida's next secretary of state. Browning
has been supervisor of elections in Pasco County for his
entire adult career, dating back to 1980, and is highly
regarded by his peers and a former president of the state
Supervisors Association....
In the past, Browning has been a defender of touch-
screen voting, which he uses in Pasco, and has said a
paper trail was unnecessary. However, both he and Crist
said they were open to requiring a paper trail, and
Browning said Florida may well have to go to a single
voting system for the entire state which the U.S.
Supreme Court suggested after the 2000 election.
Because touch-screen voting remains so controversial, a
uniform system likely would be an optical-scan paper
ballot.
Bush has opposed such requirements in the past. The
fact that Crist is open to such ideas could be a big step
forward.

The night (and days) before Christmas


As I type this, I'm LAUR
still in the stress and
panic stage of the La
holiday season. You
probably are familiar
with that portion of
the season when
you are ready to tear your hair
out and you feel great sympathy
for Scrooge.
I know some people actually
have stress-free holidays.
These people impress me and
make me feel vaguely guilty at
the same time. They get their
tree up the weekend after
Thanksgiving. Their shopping
is done well before Dec. 25.
Their cards are sent out in a
timely fashion, each addressed
by hand. They are the sorts of
people who can make a
wrapped gift look like a work of
art.
Me? I'm lucky to get my dec-
orating done the weekend
before Christmas. My family
has learned to expect their cards
after Christmas and hopefully


A'

7r(


s LOOK before January.
s LOO As I type this
midweek. I still
have shopping to
do.
In fact, I
wound up having
to run to Wal-Mart early this
evening. I had to get some tape,
bows, and gift tags among other
things. Of course, a lot of other
people were shopping there too.
Then, I got out of the store
and had another task find my
car. It did not help that I had
gone out the wrong side of the
store, which Iremembered after
I walked outside.
Now I don't do well in the
game of Find Your Car In the
Parking Lot. I know I should
pay attention when I park the
car, find some landmark to help
me at least pinpoint the area. I
forgot to do that tonight.
As I wandered the parking
lot, hoping to spot my car some-
time in the near future, some
one noticed the expression on


my face and said I looked lost.
Now, it's bad enough to lose
your car in a parking lot; when
you look like you lost your car
in the parking lot, it's pretty
pathetic.
All in all, I'm looking for-
ward to Christmas Eve.
Right now, I'm in the getting
ready mode. There's shopping
to do, planning to do, errands to
run.
Things slow down on
Christmas Eve. Even if you are
a worse procrastinator than I
am, there is a point in time on
Christmas Eve when everything
slows down. The stores close.
So do the restaurants. At some
point, you are as prepared as
you can be, and you have noth-
ing to do except stop and catch
your breath.
It's a good time to remember
that the season is about more
than making yourself crazy.
More than rushing around
town. More than cooking a
great meal.


It's a time to look at what you
have and be thankful for the
gifts that don't come in a box.
Things like family being
together. A loving dog to pet.
Food enough, shelter, and peo-
ple who love you even if you
didn't get them everything they
asked for.
And a time when most of the
world remembers a baby being
born more than 2000 years ago.
A baby who would change the
world, offering mankind a
redemption we needed but did-
n't deserve.
I hope you all have a Merry
Christmas and a happy holiday.
And, if you see me wandering
the Wal-Mart parking lot,
would you please help me find
my car?

dent. She can be contacted by

Church helps

Big program
Editor:
I want to give a special
thanks to Pastor Ron Norton
and the congregation of First
Christian Church in Sebring for
inviting Big Brothers Big
Sisters to have our Christmas
party in their fellowship hall.
They were very friendly and
welcoming. Thanks in part to
their generosity, 40 children got
to meet Santa Claus, get some
early presents, and just have
fun together.
Thanks also to Louis and
Tyrone at the Sebring Rent-a-
Center for allowing us to use a
wide-screen TV to show our
movie.
It is the generosity of com-
munity members like these that
makes it possible for Big
Brothers Big Sisters to provide
mentoring support to children
in Highlands and Hardee coun-
ties. Big Brothers Big Sisters is
a United Way of Central
Florida member agency. For
more information, or to volun-
teer, please call 863-402-9001.
Merry Christmas.

Celebration was

great for all
Editor:
As busy as the Christmas
season can be, some very spe-
cial people took time to help
two local charities.
Patsy Cross, in her usual
philanthropic way, wanted to
do something special for Ridge
Area Arc and The Children's
Home Society (Hansen House).
She proposed to both charities
an event to mutually benefit
them. Thus, The Lake Jackson
Christmas Home Celebration
was created.
This lovely champagne and
desserts evening could not have
taken place without Allison
Willey offering her beautiful
home to host' the
event. Highlands Independent
Bank, E. O. Koch Construction
Co., Wal-Mart, Agribasics,
Country Club Realty of
Sebring, Terri's Terrace/J E
Futch, The Golden Palms, and
The Great Fruit Company gen-
erously sponsored the event.
And, our grateful thanks to
all those who attended. Thank
you all who support our won-
derful organizations. We could
not survive without you.

opment for Ridge Area Arc.

Grateful for

Santa's visit
Editor:
I would like to thank Alan
Jay and his staff for making the
Christmas season a memorable
experience for all the students,
staff members and administra-
tors at Fred Wild Elementary
School.
Santa and his Alan Jay
helpers arrived at Fred Wild on
a Christmas float as the chil-
dren applauded and laughed
with joy. The bubble machine
on the float created a "snow
like" effect that put everyone in
the Christmas spirit.


For nearly three hours, Santa
and his helpers delivered more
than 750 wrapped gifts to each
student on campus. By the end
of the morning, Santa was
sweltering and tired but the
excitement of watching each
child receiving Santa's gift
made this a special occasion for
all.,
Thank you Alan Jay for mak-
ing the holiday season special
for everyone at Fred Wild
Elementary.

Watch out for the holiday thief


Holiday depression, com-
monly called holiday blues,
affects many during this time of
the year, when it seems that
almost everyone is in a celebra-
tory holiday spirit.
While many of us are cele-
brating the Christmas season,
the birth of Christ, the giving
and receiving, holiday parties,
family and friends, and other
bonuses, many dread
December.
Among those who might
experience the holiday blues are
the unemployed, low income
earners, those with annoying
family members, those who
have lost a loved one and
employees in the retail industry,
Experts advise: Do some-
thing for others. Do spend time
with those who appreciate you,
not those who merely tolerate
you. Do contact old friends. Do


t he

F*7C




treat yourself to something
good, after all the giving, don't
neglect yourself. Seek spiritual
guidance.
Experts warn: Don't drink
excessively. Don't be glutton-
ous and over-eat. Don" focus on
what you don't have; focus on
what you have. Don't over-
spend; if you can't afford it


- depression
ignore it. Don't focus on the
past or disgruntled arid annoy-
ing relatives who will be around
for the holidays.
Symptoms are: headaches,
irritability, inability to sleep,
diminished ability to think
clearly or concentrate. Decrease
interest in food, sex, and extra
curricular activities.
Contributing factors could be
increased stress, fatigue, unre-
alistic expectations, inability to
be with family, divorce, death,
debt, illness, envy too much
alcohol and loneliness.
Have a safe, well balanced
and enjoyable Christmas.
Forgetting not the reason for
this season.

quette advisor for Faith

Clarification made to impact fee information


By CORINE BURGESS
Highlands County Public Information
In an effort to clarify the
impact fee issue, apparently I
have confused some folks, for
which I humbly apologize. The
newspapers have been gracious
enough to reprint this revised
article with some clarifications
to these questions.
Can the impact fees be paid
over time instead of all at
once?
In some cases.
Yes, for non residential proj-
ects when the fee is in $100,000
or greater. A developer or busi-
ness would have a maximum
Time frame and the payment
must be secured to protect the
County by either a lien against
property or a security instru-
ment. Residential cannot be
paid over time.
Are mobile homes subject
to impact fees?
It depends on the size of the


mobile home. If it fits the cate-
gory, (square footage) it is con-
sidered a tingle family dwelling
and will be assessed in the same
way. If it will be located in an
existing mobile home park, no
impact fees will be charged (if
the mobile home park is grand
fathered by the zoning code).
When will impact fees take
effect and will I be charged if
I do not have a permit before
they do take effect?
Impact fees in Highlands
County will take effect Jan. 1,
2007. If the completed applica-
tion for the permit is submitted,
in its entirety, before Jan. 1,
2007, and if the applicant picks
up the approved permit by Feb.
28, 2007, no impact fees will be
charged.
Are impact fees charged on
total square footage or actual
livable space or gross square
footage?
In residential, actual living


space in most cases, no
attics, garages, carports, decks,
pools, porches only livable
space is subject to impact fee
charges. If a garage is enclosed
and air conditioned, then that
space must pay impact fees.
Commercial retail pays
impact fees on gross leasable
square footage and excludes
common areas not leased for
retail use.
On all other commercial -
all square footage is subject to
impact fees.
I hope this information helps
to clarify this confusing issue.
Additionally, we have added a
new link to our Web site at
www.hcbcc.net, "Calculate your
Impact Fee." It is located in the
blue "For Citizens" section on
the home page. Just click on the
link and a spreadsheet will pop
up put in required information
and it will automatically calcu-
late your impact fee.

ed.

of local concern take priority.

Sebring Middle School Student Council members pose with Shareenlynn Childs (far left), execu-
tive director of Highlands County United Way, as she is handed a check from Stephanie Hicks,
the student government president. Teacher student government sponsors Sherri Crow and Lisa
Stephenson (far right) arranged the one week fund-raiser with student council members, called
'Making a change with change.' Five gallon water jugs were placed in the cafeteria so students
could come in at lunch and put their change in. At the end of the week students raised $818.59
thanks largely in part to the sixth-graders, raising over half that amount.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop


Adorned, graced
and filled
Amongst my favorite
memories of Christmas
Eve with family and
friends, is the candlelight
service at church just
before midnight.
Most times the hush of
gently falling snow greet-
ed us as we wrapped our-
selves in warm coats,
gloves and hats for the
ride to church. The
crunch of snow under our
boots as we left the car
and climbed the church
steps was the last bit of
noise that was left in our
ears.
The church glowed
with twinkling lights.
Praises to God lifted from
voices in the choir and
congregation as we filled
the silence with song.
Then the pastor directed
our hearts and thoughts to
the true meaning of
Christmas and we sensed
God's awesome presence
fill that place.
At last, the candles
were passed around. The
pastor lit his and then one
by one each participant lit
his from the person
beside him. In the quiet,
we communed with God
as the glow in the sanctu-
ary reminded us of how
we are to be lights in a
dark world.
I imagine that passers-
by may have seen the
glow much like the paint-
ings that depict such
scenes. But, just as we are
spectators of those beauti-
ful works of art, many
remain spectators to the
real meaning and purpose
of Christmas.
- And though many of
our festivities can point
the way, we must be care-
ful that the truth is not
just placed alongside all
the other nuances of the
season. Rather it should
be central and held up
high for all to see.
For though snowmen,
Santa, decorated trees,
twinkling lights, pine
cones, baked treats, gifts,
music and stories of win-
ter wonderlands abound
- none of them can fill
us where we need it the
most, our hearts.
God's gift is a one size
fits all because Jesus is
sized perfectly for your
heart and mine. When
God chose to give every-
thing he had in Jesus, we
were able to have all we
will ever need by receiv-
ing him through faith.
Our gratitude for such a
gift is summed up
superbly in 2 Corinthians
9: 15, NIV.
"Thanks be to God for
his indescribable gift."
As we enjoy the shim-
mer of dancing lights,
uplifting music and the
gatherings with friends
and family, let's be sure
we celebrate Jesus birth
by adorning our homes
with his love; allowing
his peace to grace our
lives; and letting him fill
our hearts with his pres-
ence. Then, leave room
for stillness so that you
will be prepared to share
God's gift with all who
enter your home.
Your joy will spill over
to all who pass by. Have
a blessed Christmas.
Selah.

Santa, I put a cup of milk and
2 cookies every night on the

know you are working very
hard to get all the gift's out on
time.
I hope you already got my
list of things I want for
Christmas, I left it by the night
stand one night and when I
woke up in the morning getting
ready for school I ran to see if
you took my list and it was
gone. Thank you for taking my
list.
Also want to prey to God
that all those kids, that are
needy kids, will also have a
good Christmas. And that you
also do not get sick working at
the North Pole. Santa I believe
in you so much, and I know we
all will have a good merry
Christmas. God bless you, and
I love you too.

Continued from 9C
compliments home d6cor col-
ors and casually arranging
wrapped gifts under the tree or
on a chair. Wrap and ribbon
can be used to make paper
cones to hang on the tree.
These can be filled with
sweets and given to guests as
favors.
For those who barely have
enough time to shop much less
decorate, stores are stocked
with pre-wrapped boxes and
stylish gift bags that can be
used in surprisingly creative
ways. For instance, wine bags
and boxes are perfect for many
gifts, including a rolled sweater
or fresh-baked cookies. To add
a personal touch to holiday
presents, look for 3-D stickers
called "envelope jewelry" in
the greeting card aisle and
affix them to gift bags. The
convenient self-adhesive "jew-
elry" is also ideal for decorat-
ing holiday scrapbook pages or
custom place cards for the hol-
iday buffet table. Cards saved
from last Christmas can be
recycled into hand-made gift
tags with a pair of scissors and
some ribbon or yarn.
Thompson also noted that
the way a gift is presented
goes a long way toward
increasing its perceived value.
A new pair of shoes transforms
into an extraordinary present
when wrapped in a pretty hat-
box that can be reused later.
When they're paired with a
fashionable greeting card and a
gift card presented in a purse-
shaped holder they create.the
perfect present for any "fash-
ionista."
"We're all busy, especially
around the holidays," she
added. "The great news this
holiday season is that the
trendiest cards, wrap and home
d6cor embellishments are all
just a short drive away and can
be picked up where people
shop every week, in their ,
neighborhood grocery istoresi,
drug stores or super ceiiters'ft''

Seminole Indians in Florida. During
my visit to the Big Cypress
Reservation I made sure to try out

of sofk (a Seminole drink made of grits
or roasted corn) and fry bread, most
traditional cooking is done on special

inches deep) the bread should be able
to float. Once you have heated your oil
up, flour your hands and tear off some
of your dough ( you can make them as
big or as small as you like) Knead the
dough in your hands so its like a pan-
cake. Keep adding flour to your hands
so its not sticking. Carefully add the
dough to the oil. Remember the oil is
hot so don't drop it in. It should only
take like 5 seconds on each side. Use a
fork to pick it up and turn it over. It
should be golden brown color. Place on


a paper towel to drain excess oil.
Making fry bread takes a lot of practice. You
probably won't make the best fry bread the first
time. Just keep trying.

Sofkee
2 quarts of water
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups of white rice
3 tablespoon cornstarch

Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil; add 2 cups of
rice and 3 tablespoons of cornstarch, stirring
occasionally to prevent rice from sticking to the
bottom. Boil for approximately 12 minutes,
lower heat then add teaspoon of baking soda stir
frequently until rice is tender. Set and cool until
tolerable temperature.

Toy drive successful


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
Heartland For Children community facilitator Robin Vansacik (left) is surprised Tuesday afternoon to see how many toys the Dr.
Pepper Chiropractic office staff Missy Golden (from left), Roberto Rodriguez, Terrie Knight, and Dr. L. John Pepper) have collected
for the Rudolph Round-Up Toy Drive in Sebring. In just under a week, the office was able to collect toys from about 100 people.
Golden approached Sweetbay Supermarket and they allowed a table to be set up in its store and encouraged customers to donate
new, unwrapped toys. Vansacik said more than 400 local kids would benefit from the toy drive. Other local businesses who partici-
pated were Advanced Home Builders, A.G. Edwards, Goin Postal, the Highlands County Family YMCA and Sebring Ford Lincoln
Mercury.

height and athleticism, some-
thing the Devils are learning
to cope with lately, they man-
aged to get the ball inside
early and get production from
Marvin Williams. Williams
has shown improvement on
offense recently, utilizing his
quickness as well as an effec-
tive head-fake underneath to
add to his already solid
rebounding skills.
Jairus Hilton hit a jumper
that would have come in
handy in a friendly game of
"HORSE" when, late in the
first quarter, the shooting
guard found an opening
n from 15 feet out and
banked in an odd-
angled shot ridiculously
'ark high off the glass to
6 give the Devils a 10-9
lead.
Miami-Jackson's
Ridge Jones was a thorn in
the side of the Devils toward
the end of both halves. The
speedy guard had his hands in
everything in the second peri-
od and the script of the game
looked momentarily similar
to Thursday afternoon's loss
to West Oaks Academy when
Avon Park felt the game slip
away.
With the Generals on a 6-0
run, Williams hit a bank shot
of his own from the top of the
key. Virgil Cooper put the
Devils back within two when
he stole the ball and took it
coast-to-coai[ for an easy
la up. .!.,

History Lesson
5 Years Ago
Dec. 23, 2001: Senior for-
ward Sergio Ruiz scored
his third hat trick of the
season to fuel Lake
Placid's 3-1 come-from-
behind victory over
Sebring. The victory was
the Green Dragons' fifth
straight of the season and
it improved their overall
record to 10-1. Sebring's
Erik Martinez beat goalie
S Juan Barajas to give the
vastly improved Blue
Streaks, 1-10 at the time, a
1-0 lead.


Trivia
The first year an NFL team
Q had two receivers
with over 1,000 yards
was 1979, and there
were three teams to do it.
Which teams were they?

Javier Medina of Avon Park (1) tries to dribble around a
defender on Friday.


By MARCUS WILKINS
Sports Writer
AUBURNDALE As far
as the scoreboard is con-
cerned, it was more of the
same for Avon Park early
Friday afternoon at the Tracy
McGrady Christmas Shootout
where Miami-Jackson
clipped the Red Devils 52-46.
For the sparse crowd on
hand that actually witnessed
the game, however, the
Devils improved drastically
from their unenthusiastic per-
formance on Thursday to
push the Generals to the edge.
The -ball movement
on the offensive end lad
looked smooth when
the Devils were at their
best and the defense Avon
played with much A
more focus and inten-
sity. It took a late surge
from a pair of Miami-Jackson
guards to effectively put Avon
Park away and end the tour-
ney for the Devils.
"We played much harder
today," said a pleased Avon
Park coach Eric Zwayer after
the loss. "We showed some
improvement. I told the guys
that if we didn't win another
game, as long as we played
hard and got better, I'd be
happy with it.
"As long as we play hard
every game and try to
improve, the record will take
care of itself."

SEBRING Pressed for success.
That could be the theme for the Sebring Lady
Blue Streaks, who used their trademark sniother-
ing press to other Lake Wales Friday night for
a 63-20 '"in. theil 33rd straight regular-season
\ icior\
:,/The Lady Streaks, who were 20-0 last regular
Season and have won their first 13 this year, got
their usual balanced attack on offense, too, put-
ting four players in double figures. Priscilla
Adams led the way with 13 points, scoring all of
them in the first quarter.
Brittany Bullock added 10 points and 10
rebounds for her customary double-double, while
Whitney Lee and Hannah Shoop
s also chipped in 10 points apiece.
"Any of these girls can step it up
and play big," Sebring coach
Lake ams Robert Sampson said.
2 "Teams can't just focus on
U0 Whitney or Brittany. They have to
game plan for the whole team. You
saw it tonight with Priscilla Adams."
Shoop added four rebounds and, along with
Bullock, was a disruptive force inside all game
long.
"Hannah has really played well for me,"
Sampson said. "She's taken her game to the next
level and she's only going to get better. Her
defense has really been the key to her game this
season and teaming her with Brittany in the mid-
dle has really caused trouble for teams."
After a slow start neither team scored in the
first two minutes the Streaks finally got on the
board first and would never trail, keeping con-
stant pressure on the Highlanders (4-10) to force
a bevy of turnovers that led to easy points.


RUTH ANN GRIMALDI/News-Sun
Priscilla Adams led Sebring with 13 points Friday
night, doing all of her scoring in the third quarter.

"Tonight I think they played With the same
intensity at the end as they did in the beginning,"
said Sampson, whose team never led by less than
seven points on the night. "That is exactly what I
wanted to see."


Auto Racing


Petersen/White Lightning team switching to Ferrari


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING In the past, entries in
the GT2 division of the American Le
Mans Series has been dominated by
Porsche. However, one of Porsche's stal-
warts, Petersen Motorsports/White
Lightning Racing, has announced that it
will campaign the Ferrari F430 GT in the
ALMS next year, starting with the Mobil
1 12 hours of Sebring this coming
March.
"I know the boys are very excited for
the new challenge that has been laid out
for the team. To be able to represent
Ferrari in the ALMS is quite an honor
for us," said team owner Michael
Petersen. "To race a Ferrari has been a
dream of mine ever since my father
brought home his first Ferrari when I
was very small."
The move comes on the heels of two
consecutive ALMS driver champi-
onships for the Michael Petersen-owned
and Dale White-managed team and caps
a long and successful history with
Porsche.
Since 1998, Petersen/White Lightning


ALMS photo
Petersen/White Lightning will enter a Ferrari 430 GT in the 2007 American Le Mans
Series.


has campaigned Porsche 911-derived
cars, capturing 17 class wins and over 20
podiums. In their endurance racing
efforts with Porsche, the team boasts a
pair of prestigious victories at the 24
Hours of Le Mans, the 24 At Daytona,
the 12 Hours of Sebring and a couple of
wins in the Petit Le Mans at Road
Atlanta.
The Ferrari 430 GT will carry the tra-
ditional neon yellow, red and white liv-


ery that has been identified with the
team since it debuted in the American Le
Mans Series in 1999. As it has done
since 2003, the Petersen/White
Lightning entry will ride on Michelin
racing tires.
Team officials say they will take
delivery of the mid-engine machine in
Italy at Ferrari Corse Clienti in mid-
February. That won't be in time for the
annual ALMS test days at Sebring, so


they will hold a private "shakedown
run" at Ferrari's famous Fiorano test
track in Maranello.
The decision to switch marques
reportedly was driven in part by
Porsche's decision to shuffle their driver
lineup.
"We were informed midway through
last season that our drivers would be
moved to other teams next year. That left
us in a difficult spot," Peterson said.
However, that became an easy choice
once Ferrari laid out their ideas of a
working relationship. They outlined
what Petersen and White had been look-
ing for and the decision was made.
The break was not an easy one, with
the team principals noting the most diffi-
cult part was breaking professional ties
with some of their good friends within
Porsche Motorsports.
"Jbrg Bergmeister, Patrick Long and
many of the engineers have become like
family to everyone on this team. Those
friendships made the decision more
emotional but, at the end of the day, we
know it will be the right choice," White
said.

SCOTI DRESSE/Ncws-Sun
Baseball scorekeepers at Max Long Recreational Complex in
Sebring will now have a roof over their heads thanks to Home
Depot. The local branch of the home improvement giant, under
manager Troy Doty (seated on right), donated the materials as
well as the time and skills of department supervisor Don Thieke
(seated on left), who designed and built the four shelters. Joining
Doty and Thieke at one of the shelters are Youth Baseball of
Sebring Treasurer Tim Baker (standing on left) and Vice
President Bobby Cannon.

this offense."


DEVILS
Continued from 1D
Avon Park was able to tie the
game at 16 and 18 but couldn't
grab a lead in the second half
despite staying within constant
striking distance.
Cooper had a potentially
momentum-shifting play when
he hit another layup and was
fouled on the shot, bringing the
Red Devil bench to their feet.
But that fizzled on the next
possession when Jones hit a
short jumper, stole the ball and
added another layup in less
than 15 seconds. Jones and
teammate Jamari Harris com-
bined for 11 points in the final
frame as the Devils had trouble
taking care of the ball down the
stretch.
