It was a year of


changes in the


City of Charm
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK On balance, 2007 was a
year of personnel changes and following
through on new public policies.
Perhaps the most startlingly story broke
on Dec. 10, when C.B. Shirey, the longest
serving city manager in Avon Park's histo-
ry, indicated his desire to trade city hall for
the executive airport. One of the first
actions the city council will take up on its
first meeting in 2008, is Shirey's request for
the opportunity to apply for the job of exec-
utive director of the airport.
At a July budget meeting, fo.t.owing a
heated discussion bewtn P6Jice Chief .
Frank Mercurio and Councilianr Doug
Easono regarding Mercurio's policy of
allowing police
0 officers to take their
official vehicles
home, a long sim-
mering disagree-
ment between the
T fT police chief and the
city council erupted
into open argument.
As a result, Shirey wrote Mercurio Sept.
17, asking for his resignation by the end of
the month. Mercurio stepped down soon
after.
"Frankly, I don't believe I have the coun-
cil's will to keep him in that position,"
Shirey said at the time.
Should Shirey move over to the airport,
the search for a new police chief would be
postponed until a new city manager is hired
first.
On July 24, Shirey confirmed that Tony
Anderson, the director of the division of
parks and recreation, had resigned.
Anderson had spent 14 years with the city.
The council is considering splitting the
parks and recreation components shift-
ing parks to public works, and redesigning
the recreational portion of the job to be
more hands-on and less directive. Again,
these changes await Shirey's attention, or
that of whomever will succeed him.
Not all changes in the city came from

What a way to start the year


First-time parents Jonathan
Schuler (above left) and Devin
Capriola, of Wauchula, are tick-
led with their new baby girl,
Anabella Marie Schuler, who
was born at exactly midnight
Tuesday at Highlands Regional
Medical Center in Sebring.
'She's special and doesn't even
know it yet,' Capriola said as
she lovingly looked at her new
bundle of joy. Baby Anabella was
the first baby born in Highlands
County in 2008 and 'probably
the first baby in the state of
Florida,' according to Capriola.
Dr. D.M. Upadhyaya delivered
the New Year's baby and pre-
sented the family with a $200
gift card for Wal-Mart and a flo-
ral arrangement from the hospi-
tal. Annastaisia Marie Patterson
(right) was born at 7:28 a.m.
Tuesday, weighed six pounds, 9
ounces and became Florida
Hospital Heartland Division's
first baby of 2008. 'I wanted to
have a boy,' proud new mom
Jennifer Patterson said with a
smile after giving birth to her
third little girl. Patterson
received a giant teddy bear and
a basket full of goodies.


Growth plan

shapes the

future of

Lake Placid
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID When
visiting Lake Placid in 10, 20
or 30 years, 2007 will be
remembered,as the year that
made the town the way it is.
In a process that started
three years ago, a comprehen-
sive growth management.pjan
was finalized in late 2007.
While not passed at the
state level yet, the plan's
vision is already being incor-
porated into newly proposed
developments.
State law requires the plan
to address the needs of a
community no less than 10
years into the future, but
Lake Placid has eyes on
2040.
"The members of our com-
mittee and the county com-
missioners think that is not
adequate," said Ray Royce,
Chairman of the Growth
Management committee,
about a 10-year plan. "You
need to be thinking longer
term than that ... and do it in
an ecologically friendly and
aesthetically pleasing way."
Royce .said the plan
addresses growth over the
next 25 or 30 years, identify-
ing roadway corridors, sites
for schools and Emergency
Medical Services stations,

end staff could re-open the
Lake Denton boat ramp popu-

missioners closed in August.
The board of commission-
ers meets at 9 a.m. today and
will listen to a presentation by


Parks and Recreation Director
Vicki Pontius and Lake
Denton Committee member
Jack Richie.
After several years of
Denton residents complaining
of unchecked diving and
swimming causing their street

indecent exposure at the
ramp, the commissioners

and enforce policy.
The board built a 10-space
parking lot to accommodate


vehicles with boat trailers in
2005, but residents said that

The proposed solution
includes another eight spaces

access between 8 a.m. and 4
p.m. daily.
The ramp was most crowd-


ed during spring and summer
weekends, and a $25 fee is
being suggested to cover the
cost of manning the ramp with
county personnel Saturdays
and Sundays.
The fee would be applied

New retirement plan contribution limits boost savings potential


I-Ihthis era of big-
box discount stores,
it's practically a
badge of honor not
to pay full price for
anything. A similar
philosophy reigns
when it comes to
paying taxes: Yes,
we should all shoul- Per
der our fair share, Fin
but overpay? No
way. Jason.
One good way to lower
your tax bill is to take advan-
tage of favorable annual IRS
tax code changes, such as
cost-of-living adjustments to
various personal exemption
amounts, allowable tax


SI
la
Al


deductions and rising
income limits for
retirement savings
plan contributions.

Here are a few
2008 tax code
amounts to keep in
onial mind:
Defined contribu-
nce tion plan limits.
derman After regularly
increasing since
2001, the maximum individ-
ual contribution for 401(k),
403(b) and 457 plans remains
unchanged at $15,500. If
you're over age 50 you can
also contribute up to another
$5,000 per year. The annual


limit for combined employee
and employer contributions
to these plans rises from
$45,000 to $46,000 in 2008.
Remember, making pretax
contributions to these plans
reduces your taxable income,
which in turn lowers your
taxes. To learn more about
how 401(k) plans work, go to
Practical Money Skills for
Life, a free personal financial
management site created by
Visa USA (www.practical-
moneyskills.com/benefits).
Defined benefit plan
limits. The annual limit on
how much employees can
receive from a defined bene-
fit (pension) plan increases


from $180,000 to $185,000
in 2008.
Individual Retirement
Accounts (IRAs). The maxi-
mum amount you can con-
tribute to a regular or Roth
IRA increases from $4,000 to
$5,000 in 2008 (and from
$5,000 to $6,000 for those
aged 50 and older).
Savers credit. Low- and
moderate-income workers
who contribute to an IRA or
company-sponsored plan may
be eligible for an additional
savers credit of up to $1,000
.($2,000 if filing jointly).
Qualifying income ceiling
limits rise to $53,000 for
joint filers, $39,750 for heads


Wall Street wraps up 2007 in somber mood; Dow

finishes.year with gain of more than 6 percent


By MADLEN READ
AP Business Writer
NEW YORK Wall Street
ended a painful year with
another steep loss Monday as
investors glumly anticipated
that 2008 would see a contin-
uation of the uncertainty and
turbulence of 2007.
The Dow Jones industrials
fell about 100 points the
latest in a string of triple-digit
moves that became common-
place in the just-ended year,
although they still managed to
finish 2007 with a respectable
increase of more than 6 per-
cent not as large as the
16.29 percent increase in
2006, but a better perform-
ance than the modest loss in


2005.
The Dow's annual gain
came even after it posted its
worst fourth-quarter drop in
20 years, as investors battled
with billion-dollar losses at
the world's biggest banks and
cooler spending by con-
sumers, whose budgets have
been crimped by record-high
oil prices and falling home
prices. ,
"Considering all that's
going on, the market really
acted pretty well," said Todd
Leone, managing director of
equity trading at Cowen &
Co. It's tough to say what the
primary market driver of 2008
will be, but he said the fourth-
quarter earnings season in


January should shed some
light on how U.S. companies
are surviving the recent slow-
down and-credit crunch.
On Monday, the National
Association of Realtors said
November existing home
sales rose 0.4 percent to an
.annual rate of 5 million the
first rise in nine months.
However, sales are still 20
percent below where they
were a year ago, and the
median existing home price


has dropped 3.3 percent over
the past 12 months.
Falling home prices this
year have made it. hard for
struggling homeowners to
refinance their mortgages,
and the slump in construction
activity has hurt homebuilders
and other housing-related
industries.
According to preliminary
calculations, the Dow fell
101.05, or 0.76 .percent, to
13,264.82.

SIMPLE plan contribu-
tions. The employee contri-
bution limit for these small-
employer plans, which
resemble 401(k) plans,
remains upchanged at
$10,500. Maximum catch-up
contributions for those over
age 50 remain at $2,500.
Simplified Employee
Pension (SEP) IRA plans. In
these plans, your employer
(or you, if self-employed)
contributes directly to an IRA
on your behalf. The annual
minimum wage you must
earn to participate remains at
$500, the 2007 level. The
maximum contribution
allowed is a percentage, of
pay (25 percent if the compa-
ny is incorporated; 20 percent
if not) up to an annual pay
limit of $230,000 a $5,000
increase from 2007.
College tax credit. You
may be able to claim a Hope
credit of up to $1,800
(increased from $1,650 in
2007) for qualified education


expenses paid for each eligi-
ble student during their first
two years of post-secondary
education. Read Publication
970 at www.irs.gov for
details.
0 Social Security wage
base. The maximum earnings
amount subject to Social
Security tax has increased to
$102,000, from $97,500 in
2007.
Re-examine your filing sta-
tus options each year, partic-
ularly if your income or liv-
ing situation has changed.
And, if you held two or more
jobs during the year, make
sure you haven't overpaid
Social Security. As always,
consult a financial advisor
for your particular situation.
Be a wise consumer when
it comes to paying your
taxes: You'll have more
money to save for your future
- or to spend on the things
you want.

Happy New Year

We welcome 2008 while giving thanks we have
survived another orbit around the Sun.
The only problem with circular celebrations, how-
ever, is that all too often we think of ourselves as
going over familiar territory year after year.
But of course that is not the case.
Because our planet travels forward while going in
circles, the Earth never comes back to where it has
been.
And neither do we.
More, there are no paths before us, no crossroads
from which to choose.
We face the unknown, the uncharted future.
In the days and weeks to come, we will be hacking
our way through jungle, plodding across desert, and
swimming in water over our heads.
But think what it must of been like, standing on the
deck of the Mayflower looking into a dark and for-
bidding wilderness, knowing that if you are to be
saved, you'll have to do it yourself.
Think of what it was like to stand on the Greens in
Lexington and Concord, standing just feet away from
guns pointed directly at you, victory far from certain,
a price now on your head.
Or in 1812, watching Washington D.C. burning.
Or how it felt to be an American in 1861 when
everything you ever believed in was splintering apart.
Think of those really terrible times, of what it was
like to face brothers and cousins on a field of battle
with a real hatred and malice of heart.
Or generations later, how it felt to see the shadows,
first of communism and then fascism, lengthening
across Europe, then touching our shores.
Think how parents felt, back in the '60s, when their
children, for the most part, rejected everything they
had worked and fought for.
Certainly we face daunting challenges today, and in
any number of areas. How to bring peace to a troubled
globe, how to ensure loving care for the elderly, how
to educate and inspire the next generation, how to
keep us all healthy, sheltered-and safely fed are just
the top items on a long agenda.
At a new orbit's beginning, we would be wise to
remember others have suffered through much worse
than we. Better, in the end they not only survived,
they thrived.
The key is to keep hope in our hearts and trust in
one another.
By finding common goals we can find a way to
work together regardless of race, color or creed, or
even political affiliation.
By putting our creativity, our stubbornness, our grit
together while honoring the American traditions of
fair play and equal treatment the results will amaze
us.
So we welcome 2008, and wish all you well all
through out it.

The mask of over-classification
Editor:
One of the most damnable phrases in
political dialogue is the the term "Trust
Me." Once considered a reasonable and
appropriate request in extreme circum-
stances, it's current overuse should set off
alarm bells. Currently "Trust Me" wears
the mask of over classification.
Every fact or datum that might be
regarded as not advancing the administra-
tion's object in any field of endeavor is
now blandly labeled "Classified" and
remains beyond the foreseeable reach of
the American people. It may be totally
devoid of any security value but its poten-
tial for political embarrassment is deemed
sufficient to put it under seal. Over classi-
fication is another term for censorship.
Historically this was not always the
case. During World War II, bad news was
frequently filtered but almost never totally
suppressed. One outstanding exception that
comes to mind was the complete secrecy
of our actual, staggering losses at Pearl
Harbor, which were suppressed for at least
a year. Whether the Japanese had better
information was not known, but it would
have been totally disheartening for the
American people to be fully aware of how
near to a death blow the American fleet
had suffered. After we were able to stagger
back into the fray with a quickly augment-
ed fleet did the actual truth come out.
A similar blackout blanket was thrown
over the facts concerning the Battle of the
Bulge in December 1944. The unanticipat-
ed resurgence of the German army rocked
the American positions on their heels and
we were in dire jeopardy for weeks. It
might have changed the outcome of the
war in Europe and the public was not
informed as to how bad it was and how
close we came until Patton's third army
relieved Bastogne.
But for these two episodes, however, the
American people were kept reasonably
informed although one must observe it was
largely good news. Troop movements and
the like were generally accepted for obvi-
ous good reasons.
Meanwhile, then, as now, we were tan-
dem with a force which was inept or
unwilling to fight, for which we had the
brunt of the action while simultaneously
providing political cover for our ally by
overstating their participation in various
actions. This actually became part of our
policy rather than just a bit of "noblesse
oblige" to cheer up our inconstant ally.
When we finally withdrew the much over-
rated Vietnam units folded like so many
paper tigers.
Classification, secret government and
inappropriate objectives can quickly taint
the supposed rosy patina that the word
democracy should present. A majority of
ill motivated villains can constitute a
democracy but unless the selection is made


by well informed well intentioned citizens
the form is of little worth.
A viable democracy cannot withhold
necessary information from its citizens,
information required to make informed,
intelligent decisions with respect to its
government. Anything less is a masquer-
ade, and a perversion of the purpose of
democratic government.

The power to give

the 'gift of love'
Editor:
The "man" who changed "time." He
changed "BC" to "AD." His faith changed
the Western world, at a time when
Christianity only consisted of 13 men.
He changed the hearts and minds of
"many" millions, changing the course of
history.
His message was love of your fellow
man.
At a time of America's darkest hour, let
us hope that he can change the hearts and
minds of America's leadership.
Our nation is being invaded by those
who do not believe in "Christianity," but
rather in religions that believe in
America's destruction, "death to infidels."
Religious fanatics, wherever they reside,
are dangerous to any society.
America's leadership must require that
our immigration and constitution be
enforced, so as to screen out those who
promote "hate" and the downfall of our
nation.
The greatest gift that the "man who
changed time" could give to mankind
would be to instill "love" into the hearts
and minds of "all" men.
As we go forth into the holiday season,
"you" have the power to give that "gift of
love.

APPD is really on the job
Editor:
An open letter to Avon Park Police
Department:
We wish to take the time to thank you
for all that you do! Especially on the
morning of Thanksgiving.
Our business office was broken into and
the officers caught the burglar within min-
utes after he had broken in and fled. The
officers had already had their eye on the
suspicious character before they received
the call from our security department.
It is nice to know that the officers of the
Avon Park Police Department are protect-
ing our city with such efficiency!

Everyone can reflect back on time in their own way


Who ever would have
thought that a number could
make people want to
change? Who ever would
have thought that a date in
time makes people reflect
upon their life? It is a day
like all others. It has 24
hours in it. The sun rises in
the morning then sets in the
evening. We still need oxy-
gen to breathe and food to
sustain our bodies. Yet,
there is still a little some-
thing mixed in with this
day.
Perhaps the new year
reminds a person that time
is of the essence. Perhaps


the date reminds us that
time does certainly pass.
Either way, we look at this
time as a new beginning,
with the dew fresh on the
grass blades. We decide that
this year is a year for
change; it is a year to
accomplish such a goal.
Yet, how have we measured
our goals from the years
past?
For some reason I can-
not quite remember, I start-
ed writing letters to myself
when I was young. It was a
letter for things I would
like to change or accom-
plish for that year. Every


three months, I would take
out this letter and measure
how I was doing.
Sometimes I cringe at my
progress. Other times I look
at it and see that I am at my
target area.
At the end of the year, I
take the letter back out. In
the evening, I reflect on it
with a prayerful heart. The
personal goals, the educa-
tional goals, and even the
relational goals go through
the wringing process. It is a
time to reflect about my
decisions for the year. It is
a time to reflect about my
attitudes as well. It is a


time to really see where I
am and where I would like
to be in the future.
Then comes the time for
fun. I set back out my cate-
gories, usually being educa-
tional, spiritual, personal,
and relational and start
writing. I try to keep them
challenging, yet accom-
plishable in the year setting.
It helps me to see who I am
striving to become like.
Whether you are like me
and write objectives, or
take it in a completely dif-
ferent manner, this date is a
time for reflection over the
year. It is a time for change.

Some easy New

Year's resolutions

I don't know what the origins of
New Year's resolutions are, but I
think whoever came up with the
current manifestation of them was
sorely misguided. I mean it is great
to make goals and all that, but I
think it has gone too far. Why
should you start off a year by offi-
cially setting forth a bunch of lofty
goals that in all likelihood you
aren't going to achieve?
I have decided therefore to come
up with my own set of goals. These
are goals that are not only achiev-
able, but that if you follow through
on will enhance your life enor-
mously. My dream is that these
goals give you hope for your own
New Year.
1. Do not get convicted of any
felonies that carry more than a
five-year sentence.
2. Do not marry or date a direct
family member.
3. Do not poach an animal into
extinction.
4. Do not get caught up in any
terrorist plots involving Zambia.
5. Do not participate in any ritu-
al slaughters.
6. Do not be publicly naked
more than 35 times.
7. Do not change your hairstyle
to a mullet or any variation thereof.
8. Do not get in a physical alter-
cation with anyone under the age
of 4.
9. Do not wear plaid undergar-
ments for more than a week.
10. Do not make any cutting
remarks to armed robbers.
11. Do not gohore than two -
weeks without showering.
12. Do not watch more than 72
hours of television in any given
week.
13. Do not wear a tube top to
church.
14. Do not spend more than five
hours in a Wal-Mart at a time.
15. Do not fly Southwest, stay at
a Best Western or eat at a Don
Pablo's.
Now some of you may think that
my list is dumb, childish, imma-
ture, pathetic, sophomoric, silly,
asinine, stupid, ridiculous, out-
landish, weird, odd, bizarre, juve-
nile or jejune. Others of you may
think I have simply found the
excitement of a thesaurus. To both
groups I answer an unabashed, a
shameless, a brazen, a bold, an
audacious YES.
But let's look at my list for just a
minute. These are good goals! Who
of you wants to get in a physical
altercation with a 2-year-old? Who
of you feels the need to forward
terrorism in Zambia? And if you
aren't ruling out marrying or dating
a direct relative then I just feel
sorry for you because your kids are
going to have six or seven fingers
on each hand and a good dozen
toes. If for some reason you don't
think that is true you should come
over to my house and check out my
mongoloid inbred cats. They've got
more toes than they know what to
do with and frankly their relation-
ships are a mess too.
So as you enter this new year I
urge you don't inbreed, don't get a
mullet and don't poach an animal
into extinction. Maybe you have
loftier goals than mine, and if that
is the case well than more power to
you, but for your own sake and for
the sake of the poor 13-toed chil-
dren you could spawn if you ignore
my wisdom nuggets, please cut this
article out and tape it to your
fridge.
And remember don't eat the yel-
low snow, don't take candy from
the mob, don't antagonize a shark
more than 12 feet long, don't wear
gang colors in a nursing home,
don't eat hard boiled eggs after
consuming large amounts of corn
syrup, don't eat your way out of a
Jell-o volcano and don't drive your
car through a shopping mall.
And do have a great year!

people leaving.
There were additions to the
staff who are charged with
following through on new
policies.
For example, Gary
Thompson was hired on in
February, the first profession-
al city planner to join the city
staff. His first task is to bring
the city's comprehensive land
plan into compliance with the
state. His report, created with
grassroots input, is due in
2009.
Also in February, the city
council agreed to increase the
size of the code enforcement
office. Greg Warner and
Marnita English joined the
staff as code enforcement
officers.
"We've accomplished a
great deal," Warner said in an
interview Wednesday. "We've
issued in the ball park of
2,025 citations." But the best
news, he added, was that for
the most part people welcome
the changes,'thanking him and
his colleagues for the
improvements to the city.
Already five buildings have
been demolished that were
unsightly and unsafe. Several
others are in the process.
Some owners have chosen to
voluntarily tear down dilapi-
dated structures.
The only real bone of con-
tention, Warner said, was
returning winter residents
unhappy at finding out about
tightened yard sign regula-
tions.
Warner emphasized that
even most landlords are
enthusiastic about the new
minimum maintenance stan-
dards coming about through

the stiffer Landlord
Ordinances. They require
occupation limits for single
family homes, and houses to
be free of chipping paint, rot-
ten wood, blue tarps on roofs,
or other unsafe conditions.
Warner said he is proud that
under Captain Donald
Simmons, the code enforce-
ment department is already in
enough command of the situa-
tion that when a complaint is
registered, the staff can say,
"We know about that, it is in
the system."
In addition to code
improvements, the long
awaited upgrade of Main
Street and its sidewalks was
finally completed over the
summer.
2007 opened with the city
council bringing its
Community Redevelopment


Agency into state compliance.
It was discovered that while a
city may have more than one
CRA area, it may only have
one CRA board.
That meant the three former
independent CRA boards took
on an advisory function,
while the city council took
back the actual CRA func-
tions.
The change was not with-
out controversy. David
Cornell, who had headed the
Downtown Community
Redevelopment Agency
resigned in protest.
In November Doug Eason
announced' his retirement
from the city council. Al
Hinson was elected to fill the
vacancy. He will be sworn in
Jan. 2.
Mayor Sharon Schuler was
handily elected as mayor for


the first time in her own right.
She had risen to the position
in 2006, when then Mayor
Tom Macklin stepped down to
run for lieutenant-governor of
Florida on the American Party
ticket.
Finally, Renee A. Green,
the city's financial director,
was awarded an individual
Award of Financial Reporting
Achievement in February. It
was the first time in its histo-
ry that 'the city had been
awarded the Certificate of
Achievement for Excellence
in Financial Reporting for its
comprehensive annual finan-
cial statement.

AGEE
Continued from 1A
space sighting to her credit.
It was when she was a com-
munity corespondent for The
News Messenger.
John Glenn was going to
be in New Concord, Ohio,
following his historic space
flight.
Agee, and the young man
who would become her son-
in-law, were trying to cover
the story for their newspaper.
But it wasn't easy, as that
whole area of Ohio was
jammed with people and
cars. The road into New
Concord, she said, was one
long traffic jam as a crowd of
about 50,000 descended on
the town.
As they squeezed and
squirmed through the knots
of well wishers, her son-in-
law saw a man loaded down
with cameras. "That's the
Life photographer," he said.
"Stick close to him."
Which they did, and is
how Agee got close enough
to Glenn that she got photo-
graphs and a quote.
"I was this close to him,"
Agee said, with a brilliant
smile, as she reached out to
touch the visitor sitting right
next to her. "Plus," she
added, "I made the deadline
after getting out of there."
For three years Agee
worked for a company that
had a traveling planetarium it
would take to schools for
special programs. It was the
only type of its kind at the
time, she said.
And there is one party, in
particular, she remembers.
She was the organizer for an
Old Timers event for retired
baseball players. That is,


players who played in 1898
or before.
"I had a policeman come
and arrest one of them for
stealing bases," Agee said,
giggling at the memory. "It
was quite a party."
Agee has slowed some of
course. Her baby is 60 years
old, and one son is retired.
When she decided to go
back to school and earn a
high school equivalency
diploma when she was 60,
her son, William Agee, of
Avon Park High School, was
her teacher.
But despite all her adven-
tures, she still had a
Christmas wish to visit a
fire house.
Not to ride on an engine,
but to visit with the firefight-
ers and have a chance just to
talk to them.
It turns out Agee has had a
life-long fascination with fire
and the people who fight
them.
Her grandfather, Guy
Thompson, was killed in a
fire.
When she says, "All that
was left was his nose," she is
being entirely serious.
Thompson was a night
watchman at a gas plant. The
best people can figure, Agee
said, was he had a lit pipe in
his mouth when he opened
the door to go inside, ignit-
ing a leak that exploded.
Agee's granddaughter,
Cathy Covone, lives in south
Miami-Dade County. By
chance her boyfriend is a
lieutenant with the Broward
County Fire Department,
which is how Agee got her
wish, adding a visit with
home-town heroes to her
very long list of treasured
memories.

civic centers, as well as basic
infrastructure.
A Plan Development
Ordinance will force develop-
ers to stay true to their plans
and not change them after
approval.
"It requires the developer
to provide documentation of
what they are going to do and
do exactly that," Royce said.
"You won't end up with areas
where developers sell the lots


and then don't build roads or
clubhouses."
When the growth manage-
ment plan was submitted to
the Department of
Community Affairs, there
were only a few suggestions.
"We wanted neighborhoods
not to be congested," Royce
said about a limit of three
units per gross acre. "They
wanted our area to be more
dense than that, they wanted it
more like Tampa or West
Palm, where you have a high-
er population density."


The reason behind the sug-
gestion was the increased cost
of infrastructure to cover
additional space for spread
out homes.
"We have a commitment to
the property owners that they
will pay for all of that infra-
structure up front; they will
put the water lines in, they are
not looking for the public to
pay for that," Royce said. "It
is going to make those lots
more expensive, which feeds
into what we want: a relative-
ly nice community with


upper-middle-class homes."
Royce said forming the
plan was a success because
every member of the six-per-
son committee had input.
"Not only one person got
exactly what they wanted, but
everyone got something from
it," he said. "We worked"


together until we found solu-
tions that everyone was com-
fortable with, but it wasn't a
process that was dictated or
run by any one group."
The plan will help beautify
the growing Lake Placid area
in the coming decades, he
said. ,


"Lake Placid is in great
shape and has a bright
future," Royce said. "As a
resident of Lake Placid, I am
proud to live in Lake Placid
and look forward to it being a
good place to live and raise
my family for a long time to
come."

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The High-
lands County Parkinson's
Support Group invites
everyone to attend a free
lecture at 1 p.m. Monday,
Jan. 14, at First Baptist
Church fellowship hall, on
the corner of Lemon and
Pine streets. The guest
speaker is Dr. Theresa A.
Zesiewicz.
Zesiwicz is an associate
professor of neurology and
associate director of
the Parkinson's
Disease and
Movement Disorders
Center at the
University of South
Florida. Her profes-
sional interests
include therapeutics Zesi
for Parkinson's dis-
ease and essential tremor,
epidemiology of movement
disorders, and the use of
antiepileptic drugs in move-
ment disorders.
Parkinson's disease
known as (PD) is a progres-
sive brain disorder. PD
occurs when certain nerve
cells (neurons) in a part of
the brain die or become
impaired. The signs and
symptoms of PD are:
Tremors, slowness of move-
ment, rigidity, and difficulty
with balance. Other signs
also include: small cramped
handwriting, stiff facial
expressions, shuffling walk,


muffled speech and depres-
sion. PD is caused by loss of
dopamine providing nerve
cells. PD is not contagious
and is not hereditary but
sometimes occurs more in
same families.
There are a number of
medications used for effec-
tive treatment. Another form
of treatment is deep brain
stimulation. This control
therapy uses a surgically
implanted device to electri-
cally stimulate a pre-
S cisely targeted area
of the brain that
blocks the signals
that cause the dis-
abling symptoms.
Exercise, good nutri-
tion, the support of
iwicz family and a health
care team all con-
tribute to living well with
PD.
Support groups are an
excellent source of informa-
tion and practical advice.
You can learn more by visit-
ing www.parkinson.org or
calling 1-800-327-4545.
The Highlands County
Parkinson's Support Group
meets the second Monday of
each month September
through May at First Baptist
Church in Sebring.
They urge all Parkinson's
patients, families, friends
and care team staff to attend
meetings and learn more
about Parkinson's Disease.

Friends & Neghbors


SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING We have had
a few members go north for
Christmas with family. They
just had to see ice and snow
along with cold weather to see
how lucky we are in Florida.
They will be back soon to tell
us 'what we missed.
The season with shuffle-
board is in full swing with
league starting Jan. 9 at 1:15
p.m. Plans are inder way for
the park tournament March 4
with a cap of 10 teams. Has
your park entered your team
yet? First registered are the,
teams that will compete. The
players have so much fun.with
other parks and making new
friends.
You see everyone has much
in common, being a park
member as well as a shuffler.
Some are just in our area. in
the winter, but many live in
Florida year round. The day
starts with coffee and dough-
nuts before the competition
starts. Lunch is served to the
shufflers that day.
Line dancing is also one
thing that they do. You will
see them at local tournaments
as well as all club shuffle-
board events. They are known
for one supper they put on.
Entertainment will be pro-
vided by the following groups
at 2 p.m. Sundays this month:
Jan. 6, Stardusters Band; Jan.
.13, Bluegrass. Travelers; Jan.
20, So Loved with Bill and
Judy Williams; Jan. 27
Bluegrass Travelers.
Edward Williams and
Juanita Harlow had surgery
and should be in our prayers.,
They are both very active
when it comes to shuffleboard
at the club.
Orange Blossom tourna-
ment will be today. We hope
that you will play in this one.
Players from all around will
make it and it would be nice if
a local person were first. John


TROPICAL HARBOR
Mary Ellen Bryant
Bushee has a list to sign up
for lessons. He wants Sebring
to lower the average age of
the people that shuffle. We
want some younger shufflers
and we need some if we are to
drop the average age.
Park shuffleboard is fun
and a real challenge; you will
find club shuffleboard as
much fun with the opportuni-
ty to learn tournament play
also.
More friends can be made,
also more competition to be
had because of more players.
Come and see if this is not the
way that it is. It would be nice
if we had a team of firemen
shufflers. We have retired
firemen but no younger ones,
which we would like.
Check the person at the
desk for calendar and weekly
events. If you wish to join, the
person at the desk will be glad
to help. We are active all year
with cards, line dancing, table
tennis and shuffleboard.

would like you to join them
and share in the fun. But we
do not know how to reach you

a lot of hustle, and Avon Park
came out on top 9-7 at the end


of the first period.
The slow paced tussle con-
tinued into the second period,
with Avon Park giving
Park as good as they got.
S The faster Red

"We are fast, but we need to

fast for ourselves. We need to


make sure we are playing
team ball and get away from
street ball," said head Red
Devil coach Luther Clemons.
The Devils controlled the
ball completely in the third

Blue Streaks steal one from Mulberry

By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING Playing the
last game of the Jim
Taveniere Holiday
Tournament on Saturday, the
Sebring Blue Streaks were
able to put down the
Mulberry Panthers 66-60.
Snatching the bhll away
from Mtulberry for 17 team
steals, Sebring was able to
end the tournament in fourth
place.
Sebring place.
Jayvi er
6 Medina, with
11 points for
Mulberry the night, led
6O his team in
creating
turnovers by
making six of
thosf 17 steals.
But rather than tipping the
ball aWay and making a mad
dash toward the other end for
hurried chances, the Streaks
really controlled the ball in
the half court, setting up the
offense and seeking out the
open man.
The leading scorer for
Sebring turned out to be the
6'8" sophomore Joe Young,
who towered over the bodies
on the inside and rebounded
his way to 18 points on the
night.
Young was followed close-
ly by his teammate Sam
Robinson with 17 points,
most of which came from
outside the paint, who fed the
ball to Young every chance he
got. News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE

steals, in Sebring's 66-60 win over Mulberry to close out the Taveniere Tournament

2007, one wild ride of a year


Quite a year it's been, huh?
As 2008 has now descend-
ed upon us, a quick look back
at the year that was is needed.
Especially considering
how wild a ride the year was.
Can anyone think of a year
where such great highs were
matched by as many sordid
lows?
Some stories even had a
combination of both.
The Colts knocked
Chicago out in the Super
Bowl and the Bears have yet
to recover.
Although they seemed to
have recovered enough to
play spoiler to the New
Orleans Saints playoff
chances and give their fans a
whole lot of false hope.
The Spurs took the NBA
Championship, though
nobody seemed to notice,
given that the ratings for the
Finals against- Cleveland
were among all-time lows.
Boston became the new
New York, with the Red Sox
winning the World Series for
the second time in four years,
the Patriots looking to sweep
trough the 07-08 season and
the Celtics reborn with the
acquisitions of Kevin Garnett
and Ray Allen.
Great stories all, for
Boston in particular and New
England on the whole -
although it wouldn't seem to
speak to well for the Big
Apple.
Although, they don't have
it so bad.
Sure, the Knicks are a joke
and the New Jersey twins, the
Jets and Nets, while not real
good, aren't really that bad
either.
But the Giahts are playoff
bound, the Yankees are
always playoff bound and the
Mets are always looking to
contend so don't feel too
bad for the Yorkers
Closer to home, the
University of Florida pulled
off quite a feat, winning two
straight NCAA Basketball
titles, with the second one
coinciding with the Gators
also winning the football
championship.
Tim Tebow also became
the first sophomore to win
the Heisman Trophy.
But then comes Florida
State who, though they quali-
fied for a bowl game, is now
only sending about two-
thirds of their team thanks to
a cheating scandal.
David Beckham came to
play soccer, didn't play
much, and nobody seemed to
care so then he went back
home to play.
Scandals threatened to
rock each of the major sports,
though none seem to have
had that much effect.
The NBA hasn't had any
noticeable fallout from an
official brought up on
charges of gambling and per-
haps influencing games.
Several NFL players had
brushes with the law, as well
as with commissioner Roger
Goodell with the all-too-
often mentioned Michael
Vick being the poster child.
Who would have thought
someone would make us
nearly forget about Pac-Man
Jones and the mess he's got-
ten himself into, numerous

Thing...

times.
The steroids era finally
came to the forefront, with
the long-awaited Mitchell
report coming out late in the
year.
Well, the era has been in
the forefront for about a
decade now, it's just that
nobody wanted to talk about
it until recently.
Some admittance's, have
come out, along with a few
strong'denials.
Well, as strong as state-
ments by lawyers and
YouTube footage can be.
The thing is, while the
other leagues' troubles were
much discussed, they didn't
effect the leagues them-
selves, overall.
They were about a few
scattered individuals, NFL,
or one particular individual,
NBA, that did some very bad
things.
The steroid era is dealing
with a vast number of players
that have been playing for
over a decade now, with the
enhanced benefits of HGH
and steroids.
MVP and Cy Young
awards have been won and
the most hallowed record in
all of sports has fallen to
players heavily alleged to
have been front and center in
the 'land of largeness.'
I mean, can anyone
remember where they were,
what they were doing, or
what the date even was that
Barry Bonds broke Hank
Aarons' home run record?
I was too young to recall
when Hank took the record
from Babe Ruth, but I do
recall, just off the top of my
head that it was in April,
against the Dodgers, in
Atlanta with Al Dowling
serving up the record break-
ing dinger.
I even remember that Bill
Buckner, yes that Bill
Buckner, was the Los
Angeles left fielder who
made a vein attempt to climb
the fence and catch the ball.
And yet, this happened just
this past summer and I could-
n't tell you when it was,
where it was, who it was
against or who the pitcher
was.
While many of the players
may well have been the
fringe guys, the players either
just trying to extend their
middling careers a few years
longer, or to simply be able to
make the jump to the big
leagues the fact that the
game's biggest and most
well-known stars were a part
of it just casts both a pall and
many doubts about the game
overall.
Sure, attendance and prof-

STREAKS
Continued from 1D
match-up ended in a 10-10 tie
with Mulberry staying in a
man defense using their big
man Travon Sampson to
pound the boards.
Sampson would end the
evening with 27 points under
his belt and a very
respectable 10 for 10 on his
free throws.
Sebring would tally 10 of
their steals by the half, keep-
ing Mulberry off balance by
switching between a 2-3 zone
arid man-to-man, and using
their speed to knock the ball
away.
"This is a good win going
into 2008," said Princeton
Harris, the Streaks head
coach."They were double
teaming Sam and we needed
Joe to step up, and he came
up and played.
"Sam played a solid game,
and we finally played a game
where the team had confi-
dence. We kept telling him to
give the ball to Joe, and Sam
showed he had confidence in
him. Javier and Joe really
came through for us."
Sebring will take a little
break before taking on
Booker in a district home
game Tuesday, Jan. 8


DEVILS
Continued from 1D
fourth period, it seemed that
Avon Park had it all wrapped
up with their 34-16 lead, but
anything can happen in high
school basketball, and a short
run led by k-14 put
Kissimmee back in the run-
ning.
"We took the starters out
too soon," said Lemons.. "I
am glad for the win, but we
are going to work on the
basics next week."
The Panthers struggled
back to within five points
before the game ended 41-34
Red Devils,. who will host
Frostproof Saturday night.
'I am glad for
the win, but we
are going to work
on the basics next
week.'
LUTHER CLEMONS
Avon Park head coach

Blue Streak Chris Grubb pays the price for driving to the
hoop, though it was Mulberry that would take the low blow
with Sebring winning 66-60.


2007
Continued from 1D
its were at all-time highs, as the
game itself is always going to
be a fan favorite.
It's just that too many fan
faves are being looked at quite
a bit differently.
But the most bittersweet
story of the year has to be the
plight and remarkable recovery
of Buffalo Bill Kevin Everett.
His amazing recuperation
from an injury that left him par-
alyzed, to where he is actually
walking again is both a credit to
modern medicine as well as to
the astounding fortitude of the
man himself.
... It is sad to note that on that,
.,,day his football career ended


but in his triumph to simply
walk again, he has become
much more a hero to many
more people than he ever would
have been had his career
spanned another ten years.
From the lowest of lows to
examples that amazed us all.
It was a wild one, 2007 was,
best personified by Everett
himself.
It may be just me, but I'm
kind of hoping that this year has
a little less lows, a few less
highs, and just a lot more in the
middle.
Although a Cubs World
Series win would be nice.
