Harder Hall

expenses to

be added to

city budget

Mike Eastman: 'The
money doesn't come
from taxpayers'
By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING The city
of Sebring's July 18 acqui-
sition of Harder Hall has
had several ramifications
so far some unexpect-
ed, others more pre-
dictable.
On the predictable front,
the city council Tuesday is
set to approve a budget
amendment, covering the
expenses for the now city-
owned hotel.
The amendment wasn't
necessary until now
because the city wasn't
incurring any expenses on
the property. But once
Joran Realty filed for
bankruptcy and the hotel
didn't sell at auction, the
city became responsible
for the building, the
grounds and all the
expenses that came with it.
"Prior to us taking pos-
session of it, the only
activity was interest'
income *and interest
expense, so we didn't need
to budget," Finance
Director Mike Eastman
said. "When the city took
possession, it incurred
costs to maintain it."
Among those costs are
utilities, security, property
taxes and insurance, all of
which had previously been
covered by Joran Realty.
The budget amendment
on Tuesday's ballot
increases the. Harder Hall

SEBRING Though Highlands'
low-income seniors have to wait anoth-

increase to their homestead exemption,
the county has about $14,500 available
to help them make ends meet.
But they'll have to work for it.
"We Want the word to get out,"
Human Resources Director John Minor

LAKE PLACID Team Depot
volunteers teamed up with
Highlands County Health
Department to build a 24-bed
community garden in Lake Placid.
Their labor-intensive day began
about 8 a.m. Saturday as they cut
wood, deposited soil and sowed
the seeds of healthy-living' inspi-
ration at the Rev. Luz
Maldonado's Good Shepherd
Hispanic United Methodist
Church on County Road 29.
"Gardening is considered mod-
erate physical activity," said
Derek Carlton, the Health
Department's health promotion
department. "It's going to give


them an opportunity to get out and
be active."
Carlton promotes better living
via a variety of.programs based on
available funding and tries to tai-

such as the VERB program for
sub-teenaged school children.

Two similar

Venus cases

spark arrests

Both had child cruelty
and firearms charges
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@news'ssun.comn
VENUS Two unrelated
arrests were made this week
in Venus, where both suspects
allegedly fired weapons
while arguing, and in both
cases each was charged with
child cruelty.
Both suspects' names are
being withheld by the News-
Sun in order to protect the
victims' identities.
The first suspect, 35, was
picked up on a warrant from
the Feb. 8 incident.
It started when he was
approached about a photo-
graph of an unknown female
in his bedroom, Deputy
Robinn Singles wrote in her
report.
This started a verbal argu-
ment with the victim and sus-
pect, who became very angry
and began to hit the woman in
her face and drag her around'
the residence by her hair,
Singles said.
The victim was able to get
away, but the suspect then
allegedly threw a 2-by-2-foot
mirror at her, which she
blocked with her hands.
Singles said this resulted in
injuries to the victim's hands
and face due to the broken
fragments.
She left the residence but
the suspect followed her,
brandishing a handgun and
pointing it at her, saying "I
can just end this right now,"
Singles wrote in the repQrt.
The suspect then allegedly
pointed the gun in the air and
fired one round.
A minor attempted to inter-
vene and protect the victim,
but was punched on the top of
the head, Singles said.
The' suspect was charged
with aggravated assault and
battery with a deadly weapon
and child cruelty.
He remained in- the
Highlands County jail on
$60,500 bond.
The other incident led to
the brandishing of an AK-47.
The suspect, 44, arrived
home intoxicated and in a
rage, one complainant told
Deputy James Carr.
"It's going to end tonight.
You're my enemy. Call the
cops, you all are going to
die," is what the suspect said,
Carr wrote in his report.
The suspect attempted to
bait a 16-year-old victim into
a fight, but the minor victim
instead left the room.
The suspect followed him,
yelling at him a few inches
from his face.
Fearing the suspect, the
victim pushed him away, but
was punched in the face,
knocking him to the ground.
The victim fought back in
self defense, but was grabbed
around the neck and choked.
He was able to get away,
leaving the residence and
running up the street. .
The suspect chased him
briefly but returned to th6
house to get the AK-47, then
went back outside, yelling
"I'm going to kill him," Carr
said.
The suspect allegedly
broke a living room window
with his fist and an exterior
light with the gun while leav-
ing the house, then turned
around and fired one round
from the gun into the open
front door of the house.
He put the rifle back inside
and then fled the scene, Carr
said.


The suspect was charged
with aggravated assault,
felony battery by strangula-
tion, firing a weapon into a
building, using a weapon
while under the influence of
alcohol, and cruelty towards a
child. The suspect was still in
the Highlands County jail in
lieu of $61,500.

A return to glory


Downtown Sebring's historic Hainz Building

restored to thriving professional center


By PATRICIA C. POND
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING In the
1970's, the Hainz Building
on North Ridgewood Drive,
along with much of down-
town Sebring, suffered the
effects of urban decline.
Slowly the second floor
emptied. Storefront windows
were changed over time to
differing sizes and the spaces
altered and divided.
By 2000, the last tenant, a
sandwich shop, shut its doors
and the grand old building
sat vacant leaking and for-
gotten.
In July 2002, Sam Corson,
an investor from Tampa, pur-
chased the-property and
began a massive restoration
on the stately building. With
support from local architects,
historians, governmental
agencies, contractors and
bankers, a plan to return the
property to its original look
was designed and put into
action.
"I wound up in Sebring by
accident," Corson recalls. "I1
was on my way to Lake
Wales to,pick up my son
from camp and I stopped to
take a look at a building for
sale in their historic district.
.This one was not for me but'
the Realtor said he would
find something else."
A few weeks later, the
Realtor asked Corson to meet
him in Sebring, where he
showed him the Nan-ces-o-
wee Hotel, which still had a
bar and restaurant running at
that time.
He told the Realtor he did-
n't want to get into the hotel
business, but then looked
across the street and saw the
Hainz building, all boarded
up with a 'for sale' sign on it.
"When I first looked at
this building, I just had one
of those moments. I thought
'if I don't do this, I will kick
myself for the rest of my
life.'
"Preserving old buildings
is great but they have to have

Seven in running for


TDC director position


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING A six-person
advisory committee will
interview seven semi-finalists
for the Tourism Development
Council's executive director
position.
Former director Jim
Brantley allowed his contract
to expire last summer but
remained available to guide
the department until it found
his replacement.
Brantley will join Mark
Stewart, Kenilworth Lodge,
Trey Stephenson, Sebring
International Raceway, Jack
Richie, Highlands County
Homeowners Association,
Christine Hatfield, Inn on the
Lakes, and John Minor, coun-
ty human resources director,
in selecting a nominee to
present to the TDC board
Thursday, following
Tuesday's interviews.
Brantley's contract was for
$83,520. The salary range for
his successor, who will be a
county employee, is $41,000
to $67,500.
At their meeting Tuesday,
the commissioners decided to
not fill two new director-level
positions until County
Administrator Carl Cool is
replaced. In addition, they


warned their departments to
not expect to hire anybody.
"The word is out to not
waste your paper in trying to
hire anybody," Commission
Chairman Edgar Stoke said.
However, the TDC direc-
torship is a position that is
funded in the current budget
and isn't one of the new
directors.
Of the 21 people who
applied, seven were invited
for interviews.
They are Michelle Phillips,
executive assistant to the
Economic Development
Commission, Dana Knight,
TDC administrative assistant,
Larry Musgrave, a business
development consultant, John
Scherlacher, tourism coordi-
nator for Florida's Heartland
Rural Economic
Development Initiative,
Karen Kroger, freelance
graphic designer, Nicole
Thomas, writer and editor for
a French publication, and
Andrew Cripps, Ormund
Beach Chamber of Commerce
executive director.
If the advisory committee
is able. to agree on a finalist,
they'll present that person to
the Tourist Development
Council on Thursday.

some use," he added. "You
can't just preserve them and
let them stand there.
Corson points out that
restoring old buildings is a
sound and viable business.
"It is not true that only
people 'stuck in. the past' do
this. There are many pro-
grams to help with these
efforts, and there are tax ben-
efits. But you have to return
them to use."
Corson closed on the
property in July 2002 and
began the restoration imme-
diately. He had plenty of
experience to back him up.
Corson bought his first
old building in 1989 at the
age of 19. His parents co-
signed for the loan, and he
secured additional funding to
restore it..
He still owns and manages
this property, which launched
him on a career in property
rehabilitation and manage-
ment at a very young age.
"I spent most of my career
doing rehabs of historic
buildings in Tampa. Most
have been residential single
family, fourplexes, and 16
unit apartment buildings."

The Hainz building is a

which is mainly cleanup and

"We worked with the

photos showing the building'
during its construction and
after it was completed. We
were able to ascertain dimen-

said.
"We had to gut everything
inside, and do asbestos abate-

cleaning up after the pigeons
was much more expensive
than removing the asbestos.

Keeping an even keel

The trouble with interesting times is they can scare
the purple out of a peacock.
So it is important, we think, as we make decisions
to shape our future that we keep our heads, lives and
goals in perspective.
Yes, rightnnow, as the economy slows it is unset-
tling, even heartbreaking, to see longtime business
neighbors move to livelier quarters, or fade from the
scene.
But failure is not, we choose to think, the prevail-
ing order of the day.
In the first place, the opportunities that lie before us
are so mind-boggling all one needs is the creativity to
imagine them.
In the second place, this is hardly the first time we
Americans have faced danger and privation. As a peo-
ple we have a track record for (finally) being able to
come together and work to a common purpose.
Time after time, we have risen to the challenge and
triumphed.
We are secure in believing this is another of those
times.
Current polls consistently state the one thing
Americans today share is a desire for change -
regardless of what that change should be.
When systems no longer work, or a process is bent
out of shape as so many of our systems and'
processes are then that desire for change is healing
and cathartic.
But we have to remember that change is something
that involves us, and affects us. We have to admit that
some of us will be hurt. We have to admit all of us
will have to change at least some of our most cher-
ished habits.
While retaining compassion for those who will
have to begin again, we need to be strong and not let
the pull of pessimism overwhelm us.
Only as a common body do we have a long-term
chance of keeping what we love most about our indi-
vidual lives; turning on ourselves will only lead to our
falling apart.
Look to those among us who have adapted and
- thrived. They provide a pathway.
Listen to those who speak of the whole community.
They keep us centered.
Reach out to optimists. They help us move forward.
Don't lose hope. Just because something has, to be
done differently, or some loss has been incurred,
doesn't mean it's the end of the world.
With dedicated governments brave enough to work
out in the open, and citizens brave enough to be open
Sto new ways, we will emerge out of these interesting
times more confident, better skilled and able to retake
a leadership role.

There islocal help for domestic violence Victims

There is local help for domestic violence victims


Valentine's Day has come and gone ... the
'flowers are wilted, the card is somewhere in
the house, the candies are gone and the
romantic dinner is a faded memory.
You're sitting on the side of the bed won-
dering what happened as you rub your hand
across your bruised face. The baby is crying
needing to be fed or his diaper changed ...
you barely slept at all last night after the
beating, expecting another blow at anytime.
He comes home that night with flowers,
another card and eager to patch things up.
You're hoping he means it this time. Surely
he does love you, it's.just the stress of the
job, or maybe the liquor he can't handle or
could it be drugs? It only happens once a
month, then things are almost like a fairy
tale again. If only you behave better this
time, obey his every command or wish ...
oh, why can't you be good? Your parents
were never available growing up and you
kept trying to be good to get their love and
attention but it never worked.,
He is eager to make things right again
because he needs you to take care of him.
You are convinced you can't find anyone
else, or so you've been told time and time
again. You think you're fat, lazy, stupid,
. ugly (to put it in his words)'and he's the
only one that will ever love you.
Your family has seen or heard this abuse
from time to time at gatherings, or when
you and the man lived with them. They tried
to intervene, despite being threatened by the
perpetrator not to interfere and even you
have said the same thing. So now you're
isolated from the ones who would do any-
thing for you, to be with a man who would
just as soon see you dead. Now it's just a
matter of time.
Sounds like a scene from a Lifetime
movie, but sad to say this scene is repeated
over and over here in little old Highlands


A Heart's Journey
Janelle Dennison
County, behind closed doors ... may even be
the neighbors you don't know.
The good news is you don't have to keep
living this way. There are agencies in .
Highlands County that can help. It's just a
matter of going against your fears. There
are friends or family, no ddubt, who would
seek help with you, so you won't be alone.
The year is still relatively new. Why not be
free of this torment now and start a new life
for you. Sure it will take time but that's part
of the process. As you make a new place for
yourself and any children you may have,
your emotions, mind, heart can begin to
heal from the strain of the abuse you've
endured.
Seek counseling and learn how to love
yourself ... to value the unique individual
you are, who God created you to be. Be
determined your baby boy will not do this
to his future girlfriend or wife by getting
him out of it now. This is not a normal way
for people to live ... and certainly not nor-
mal for you!
There is a Safe House in Highlands
County. Call the sheriff's department (402-
7200) or your local police station to get the
number and go there. Or you can call this
number, 386-1167, for advice.
If you decide you still want a companion
after all this, get a dog. The Humane
Society has plenty of them and they make
great companions, full of unconditional
love. Your baby will love it too.
I'm hoping some young lady (or man, as
men are abused too) will choose life for
herself and her child or children. May God
help you find your way to a better life.

Letters


Bored with the constant
debates, speeches
Editor:
Are we there yet? The election season kicked off
two months earlier than usual this year. And Super
Tuesday found most Americans already suffering
from electionary fatigue. Many of us are already
bored with the constant domination of television
debates and speeches. Most of the candidates failed
to inspire enthusiasm.
Pundits on both sides of the political spectrum
are handicapping the general election based on
what is expected to be an unusual low turn out at
the poles. Some, particularly among the
Republicans, are disgusted that they plan to register
a protest vote. Others plan to not vote at all.
Not voting means allowing somebody else to
decide the issues facing our nation this election
cycle. And the issues on the table this year are
some of the more deadly issues that our country
has ever faced in all its history.
Never before has America faced a greater threat
to its existence on so many possible fronts. The
cultural war has threatened to tear us apart from
within. Rich against poor, black against white, lib-
eral against conservative, gay against straight, evo-
lutionists against creationists, pro
abortionists(choice) against pro-lifers.
We aren't a very united United States as we
approach election 2008. About the only thing most
Americans can agree on is that nobody seems to
agree on anything ...
This election Americans will decide more than
ever whom to trust with America's economic
future. Why? Because we are in the beginning of
one of the most biggest economic crises. Whoever
occupies the Oval Office for the next four years
will set America's legal agenda for decades to
come. U.S. Supreme Court Judges Breyer,
Kennedy, Ginsberg, Stevens and Scalia are all over
70 years old. ... Statically the next three likely
openings on the Supreme Court Bench will be lib-
eral vacancies. On the hot button issue of our times
is abortion. The Supreme Court is divided 5 to 4, a
single pro-life appointment could end the carnage
that has claimed more than 30 million unborn
American lives since the 1973 Roe vs Wade deci-
sion. ...
How you vote'in November, and especially
whether you vote in November could decide the


question for all Americans for the next 30 years.
Another issue that will be influenced this general
election will be that of national security. One side
argues that its better to withdraw from Iraq and to
surrender it to the terrorists than to fight it out and
risk of further angering the Islamic world. The
other side argues 'that the Islamic world is already'
maxed out angry and withdrawing from Iraq will
make us look like cowards and simply shift the bat-
tlefield back to the U.S. soil...'.
Some years the country is best served by what
you cast your vote for. Other years it is what you
vote against. This year the jury is still out. I think
we are really going to have to do our homework,
and most of all pray while it is still legal.

Delayed dividends
Editor:
What goes around, comes around. Senator
McCain's long-time allegiance to President Bush
has finally paid off. His position on the Iraqi war,
amnesty bill, Free Trade bills, prescriptive drug
bill, pension exemption for corporations bill, the
China negotiation process, you name it, Senator
McCain was behind President Bush all the way.
Thus, he has just claimed his dividends by way of
endorsement by Mayor Giuliani, Sens. Martinez,
Graham and Lieberman and Gov. Schwarzeneggar
two days before the Florida Primary. Even
Governor Crist (a v.p. nominee?). All supporters of
President Bush. The Establishment!
What with all the talk about change, even by
McCain, guess who endorses McCain? The estab-
lishment! Senator McCain, war hero, beloved by
all Americans, now vaulted to the front in the
Republican race. How fitting. He was brutally
trashed by those supporters of Bush in South
Carolina in 2000, but said nothing (perhaps
because of what happened to him in Vietnam). He
did not blame President Bush. In fact, he supported
just about all of Bush's policies, especially Iraq. He
even collaborated with Gov. Huckabee to split the
conservative vote with Gov. Romney. Yes, his alle-
giance has finally paid dividends!
All well and good, except for one key factor. He
has reversed himself on almost all of them in the
last two months except one, the Iraqi war. He now
proclaims his Straight Talk Express, which appears
to have lost a wheel. He is promising just about


everything, even getting Osama bin Ladin, because
"he knows how." If so, why,not now? He is pan-
dering to every segment of the population, even the
conservatives. He is counting on the military for
support; yet, the government has exploited them
from day one of the war.
The troops had to wait for years to get armor for
their vehicles and themselves. Their families were
forbidden to send same to them. The troops' tours
extended up to a year and were returned to combat
two/three times. Hundreds were drummed out of
the military because they were "malingerers," when
actually they were shell shocked and brain dam-
aged. Somehow it took four years of the war to
learn that Post Traumatic Distress Syndrome is a
real injury, that having vehicles blown up under
them do cause real damage. Then the wounded
troops returned home to face all kinds of bureau-
cracy that delayed medical care for recovery. And
their old jobs? This is what Senator McCain is
promising the troops? what Pres. Bush provided?
Senator McCain, reformed national hero, is the
Republican nominee. Another national hero was
exploited too. He resigned as Secretary of State.

Thanked for

being decent
'The past couple of days have
found me in a state known in my
house as "pre-trip panic."
This occurs a couple of days
before I'm going out of town.
What little sanity I normally pos-
sess deserts me, and I become
jittery, anxious, and cranky.
I check things over and over
again to make sure I'm not for-
getting anything. I worry about a
flight being cancelled, or some
emergency coming up at home
that keeps me from leaving. I
worry about missing my plane. I
worry about getting halfway to
Tampa and realizing I left my
suitcase back at home.
Now understand that almost
none of the above has ever hap-
pened to me. In spite of my
craziness, the things I need usu-
ally go with me and I get to my
destination fine. But my brain is
a suspicious thing, worrying
about this and that.
My family recognizes this.
insanity for what it is and is gen-
erally patient through it. Don
keeps me grounded, making sure
I get things ready and don't go
completely off the deep end.
James pats my hand and tells me
to calm down. And my friends
laugh and tell me to have a good
trip.
I joke that I'm a walking phar-
macy. To ensure I have enough
mieds for the five days I will be
out of town, I had to get no less
than five prescriptions filled. To
make things more interesting,
one of my medications requires a
fresh prescription 'each time I
need it.
So Monday between running
other places, I stopped by Wal-
Mart to drop off the prescrip-
tions. Since I spend a lot of time
at the phariiacy window, the
gals there know me on sight.
I asked the pleasant young
woman who took my refill
requests when I could pick them
up, fully expecting to be told
Tuesday morning. She looked it
over and told me they'd be ready
by seven o'clock that'evening -
about two hours.
That was a pleasant surprise.
It gave me time to run other
errands and even get a.fast din-
ner. By the time I found myself
back in the Wal-Mart pharmacy
line it was closer to eight o'clock
than seven.
When I got to the window, the
gal there apologized and said the
meds weren't quite ready yet -
did I have more shopping to do,
or did I mind sitting down and
waiting?
I shrugged. I didn't have any
more shopping to do, but I had
my 'PDA with some required
reading on it so I figured I could
kill a few minutes while waiting
for them to finish up. There were
no seats, so I pulled my PDA out
and went back to where I'd left
off reading.
Then the gal who took my
refill order came up to me.
"Thank you for being so
patient," she told me. "A lot of
people would have chewed her
out."
Huh? I was being thanked for
acting like a normal human
being should act?
Look, I can and have reamed
out people when they aren't
doing their jobs. I can be impa-
tient with the worst of them.
But chew out the gal at the
window? When it's probably not
her fault? When it's the middle
of season, when the pharmacy's
workload increases in a major
way? When I counted it a mira-
cle I was getting them Monday
at all? *
Yeah, some people would
have chewed her out. But had so
many done so that my not doing
so was worth special thanks?


If so, shame on the impatient
people. If you are one of them,
make an extra effort to act differ-
ently the next time you have to
stand in line.
Being polite to someone
shouldn't be something unusual.
Even if you have to stand in line
in Wal-Mart.

been changed over time to
differing sizes, were ripped

reproduction of the original
design. The new windows
meet current wind codes and

On the building's front

the original transom win-

"I went to great pains to
salvage the old glass. Some
had to be replaced, but you
can still see the wavy glass in

SEBRING The E. L.
Hainz Bloc is the most recent
restoration in the'revitaliza-
tion effort taking place in
Historic Downtown Sebring.
Unlike some of its more dec-
orative neighbors, the Hainz
Building presents its busi-
ness-like facade with stately
grace and no apologies.
The Hainz Bloc is a con-
tributing building in the
Sebring Historic Commercial
District listed in the National
Register of Historic Places in
1989.
The large two-part mason-
ry vernacular building is
located at 130-138 N.
Ridgewood Drive. The archi-
tecture is simple and solid,
with a flat parapet roof, buff
colored brick and a stucco
belt around the middle with "
ceramic tile inlays.
The Hainz Bloc was
designed to house shops on
the first story and offices on
the second story. Most peo-
ple patronizing the restaurant
and businesses at street level
are unaware that they are in a
building that has been
painstaking restored to its


ful antique chandelier high-
lights the center of the space.
"We saw.the need for a
professional center for people
to meet in downtown
Sebring," Corson said. "Our
offices serve small business-
es and organizations. Tenants
can reserve the Sebring
Conference Room twice
monthly at no charge."
The Hainz Professional
Center also provides on-site
management. Corson's office
administrator, Linda
Schindlbeck, is in the build-
ing half days and will assist
tenants with office support
such as copying and receiv-
ing parcels
Dee's Place, one of the
area's most popular restau-
rants, was the first new ten-
ant in the restored Hainz
Building:
Corson said that shortly
after work began on the
building, he put a 'for rent'
sign in the front window.
"Dee Andrews called me
immediately within the first
couple of hours of the sign
going up," he recalls. "Dee

original period.
In 1923, city founder
George Sebring partnered
with another early settler of
German descent, Edward L.
Hainz, to build a 13,000-
square-foot office and retail
building on North Ridgewood
Drive. This two-story building
was the last major commer-
cial block constructed by the
Sebring Real Estate Company
before the Florida land boom
ended.
Since its opening, the
Hainz building housed a vari-
ety of businesses, including
an A&P grocery store,
Gilbert's Drugs complete with
soda fountain, a diner and a
pizza restaurant. Upstairs
were professional offices of
all types, a dance studio and
the local Moose Lodge.
The second story served
as the first Highlands County
Courthouse between 1923
and 1927, when the present
courthouse was built on
Commerce Avenue.
The courtroom area is now
the final phase of the build-
ing's five-year restoration,
and will become a banquet
facility.

ground floor of the Nan-ces-

The other street-level
businesses are Stepz Dance
Studio and Nutri Care
Vitamins and Greeting Cards.
The final phase of the
restoration will be a, new
banquet room on the second
story, which at one time
served as the first Highlands
County Courthouse. Corson
is looking forward to being
able to offer another elegant
facility to the community in
the heart of Sebring's historic
district.
"I like commercial real
estate, and compared to
residential properties I get

DAV honors Wal-Mart


for donations to park


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Harold
Linville, commander of the
Disabled American Veterans
Ridge Chapter 49, presented
the Sebring Wal-Mart a
Citation of Merit on Friday
during a Wal-Mart staff meet-
ing with employees and man-
agement in attendance.
The citation recognizes the
DAV's appreciation and out-
standing support shown to
veterans by the staff members
of Wal-Mart. The donations


of funds will be used for the
improvements to the Medal of
Honor Park. The park, at 7205
S. George Blvd., hosts monu-
ments of each of the Florida
recipients of the Medal of
Honor, from all the wars from
the 1890's to the present.
Following the 2004 hurri-
canes, the monuments in the
park and many of the trees
needed replacement. Wal-
Mart stepped forward at that
time and assisted in the
rebuilding of the park.

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING When Amy
Love, an American history
teacher at Avon Park High
School, contacted the
Highlands County Veteran
Services Office for assistance,
she was acting on the request
of Congressman Tim
Mahoney.
Mahoney requested the high
schools in each county in the
16th Congressional District to
interview veterans, collect
artifacts from the veterans, and
vide6 or record each veteran's
story regarding their time in
the U.S. Military for the
Library of Congress History of
the U.S. Military Veterans
Project ..
Following weeks of collab-
oration with the Highlands
County Veterans Advisory
Board and the Veterans
Council of Highlands County
Inc., a date was set for the
interviews. Six Veterans from
around Highlands County told
their stories to Love's classes.
Mahoney's request for the
students to interview area vet-
erans is for the ongoing

iho Representing veter-
one>y ans from World War II,
the Rev. Gene Snidow
spoke to' the high school stu-
dents with regard to his time in
the service.
Judy Puffenbarger, an Iraqi
War soldier, is currently
employed by the Sebring
Community Outpatient VA
Clinic. The students were in,
awe of her story of Iraq. U.S.
women soldiers were diligent
in not offending the culture of


the area in which they served,
while still conducting their
assigned duties. In the U.S.
military, women soldiers carry
weapons, crawl through dirt,
climb towers, jump out of air-
craft, and are physically chal-
lenged just as the men. They
are prepared to fire their
weapon when necessary. Many
women have fired their
weapon to protect their fellow
comrades in combat. The mili-
tary makes no distinction
between men or women sol-
diers.
Mahoney and his assistants
were on hand in Love's class-
room while Puffenbarger was
interviewed and filmed by the
students.

needy," LaCount said
Wednesday.
Under the direction of
Assistant Human Services
Director Mary Foy, the coun-
ty had been distributing food
to qualifying residents. But,
as a cost-savings measure, the
program was cut and trans-
ferred to the private sector.
"Mary Foy said I was able
to receive some money for
gas and that is what I
received," said LaCount, who
winters here from Wisconsin.
LaCount volunteered with
the county for its intrinsic
value, not for monetary
rewards. In fact, she followed
the commodity program to
Salvation Army, where she's
'again;an unpaid volunteer.
"If I can help some office
out and, in turn, they can help
the needy out, I'm all for
that," LaCount said.

Seniors will have to
wait to get low-
income exemption
SEBRING Low-
income senior citizens
seeking a property tax
exemption increase will
have to wait another year.
Commissioner. C. Guy
Maxcy said a 40-minute
discussion about the mer-
its of an increase came to a
close when they realized
the deadline was Saturday,
March 1.
"I'm a little frustrated
by that," Maxcy said
Wednesday morning,
explaining action by the
board requires two adver-
tised public hearings.

unteers have elected to work
at the county's libraries,
though employment opportu-


cities are only limited to a
person's capabilities.
The application process is.
similar to that of any person
seeking a Highlands County
job applications are filled,
backgrounds are checked and
candidates are interviewed.
The 80 hours can- be
worked in any combination
desired by the senior.
"Some people want to do it
in two weeks, and some peo-
ple want to spread it out,"
Minor said.
Once the 80 hours are
expended, Minor said the
individual must wait 12
months before,being qualified
again.
And, the funding must be
available.
Of the $15,200 budgeted
for the current fiscal year,
$14,500 remain. That means
26 people could earn $543.20
each before Oct. 1 to put
toward property taxes, pres-
ents for grandchildren, gro-
ceries or whatever their hearts
desire.

Good Shepherd Hispanic United Methodist Church member Manuel Viera and Lay Leader
Benny Aguilar work together Saturday morning to help build a community garden at their
church in Lake Placid. N


GARDEN
Continued from 1A
entire congregation."
Ownership of the garden is
essential because, after a year,
the church will be the sole
caretaker of the nourishing
harvest.
Until then, the Health
Department will provide
quarterly food preparation
lessons to help the gardeners
incorporate their veggies.
The garden will be divided
into 24 beds elevated two
feet, with one or two people
cultivating each.
,"The two-foot height
makes them easier to main-
tain," Carlton explained.


"They don't have to bend as
much as the waist or knees."
In addition, he said the
higher beds are less prone to
weeds and rodent attacks.
To add to the aesthetics,
they'll also build an arbor.
Most of the workforce is
coming from Home Depot,
which leant technical expert-
ise, drew up plans' and donat-
ed equipment and seeds,
which will be planted
Saturday.
"We are very happy about
this," said Maldonado, the
church's pastor. "Witfh this
program we want to reach the
community."
Her flock-is 50-60 mostly-
Hispanic members represent-
ing Puerto Rico, Central and


South Americas, Mexico and
the Caribbean.
She said the church part-
nered with "Closing the Gap"
when she was working on her
ministry doctorate to fulfill a
project requirement.
The relationship with Gap
proved fruitful and when the
Health Department came call-
ing for a participant in the
community garden, Closing
the Gap called Maldonado.
In addition to her own
parishioners' benefit,
Maldonado said they'll give
away the harvests' surpluses.
"So many times in church
we talk about a healthy spir-
it,"- she said. "But, we forget
about the whole body."


STIMULUS
Continued from 1A
when the bbard considers
establishing an "Affordable
and Workforce Housing
Program."
Another feasible idea dis-
cussed among staff was start-
ing the construction of cer-
tain projects already
approved and funded.
Cool said .Maxcy's sugges-
tion of suspending fees is
"legal to reduce them" but he
didn't indicate it was an idea
to run with.
"The problem we have
with housing out there is
there are to many houses for
sale," Cool said. "Building
more houses doesn't solve
that problem. Building is a
short-term fix."
Cool's wife Maureen Cool
sells real estate, and he plans
on working with her upon his
retirement at the end of May.
Instead, the county should
focus on luring coastal resi-
dents, and their Save Our
Homes portability.
"You now have some cred-
its from your homestead
exemption," Cool said,
explaining how targeted
advertisements might try to
get residents to sell their rel-
atively more expensive
homes elsewhere. "Come to
Highlands County and get
some value for that."
It's an idea he said Louise
England, Economic
Development Commission
executive director, endorsed.
England didn't return calls
Friday.
The theory is the inland
flux would consume the
homes on the market, eventu-
ally creating the need for
more construction.
Ken Melvin, Sebring resi-
dent and the only council
candidate who recommends
potential constituents not
vote for him (if they don't
want change), is on board
with the stimulus idea.
"I'm talking to a lot of
business people, I'm talking
to a lot of politicians and I'm
talking to a lot of 'Joe
Blows' on the street," he
said, calling the News-Sun
with ideas of his own.
"There's complaints about
rents too high. We need to
encourage lower rents, or
find a way to stimulate, help
pay for rents.
"There's a lot that we can
do if we just take the attitude
that we're going to do it. Cut
all the red tape and just make
it happen."
While implementing some
kind of stimulus is an atten-
tion-getting venture, how
would the commissioners
gauge whether it's success-
ful, and determine when to


New numbers to be

kevin.shutt@newssun.com
According to Heartland
Workforce statistics, the
unemployment rate in
Highlands County shot to a
three-year high in August
before creeping back
downward.
The numbers provided
are current through Dec.
31, 2007, and new data are
expected Thursday.
In January of last year,
the unemployment rate was
3.5 percent 42,204 peo-

eligible workforce of
43,733.
In August, both those
numbers decreased but the
rate increased the labor
force shrunk to 43,026
while employment dropped
to 40,438 resulting in a 5.1
percent unemployment
rate.
The actual number of
unemployed in January
was 1,529 compared to
August's 2,264.
Last year also recorded
some of the lowest unem-

"I hadn't thought about
that yet," Maxcy said
Wednesday. "That's a very
valid question."
He suggested "leaning" on
state standards for guidance.
He said a time limit of six
months or a year might be
necessary.
"In other words, let it sun-

county during the three-
year period of 2005-2007.
April and May boasted 3
percent unemployment -
1,322 and 1,334 people,
respectively. April 2006
had 1,221 unemployed for
a three-year low of 2.9 per-
cent.
Annual averages rates in
percentages were 4.3, 3.6,
and 4.2, respectively, for
2005, 2006, 2007.
Helen McKinney,
Highlands County Building
Department, provided a
snapshot of three year's
worth of permits pulled.
Most currently, from
Oct. 1 through Feb. 28,
there were 124 single fami-

For the same period for
2006-2007 .z- inle fami-

And, for 2005-2006 -

you could be stimulating a

Cool pointed to economic
indicators such as unemploy-

"When they start picking
up," he said.


Sebring woman jailed for forging prescriptions


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING A woman was
out on $21,500 bond after she
was indicated in forging pre-
scription.
Claire Dunn, 49, Sebring,
allegedly took advantage of
her job at Heartland Oncology
Partners, where she was
authorized to contact pharma-
cies and arrange for patient
prescriptions, by forging six
prescriptions for herself and
another unidentified suspect.


HARDER
Continued from 1A
cal year and lays out exactly
where the money went.
The amendment will cover
both revenues (including
interest income and grant
moneys) and expenses
(including legal costs, 'taxes,
insurance and the like). The
money spent on Harder Hall
is pulled entirely from the
city's special revenue fund,
and the expenses come at no
additional cost, to city resi-
dents, Eastman said.,
"The money doesn't come
from taxpayers," he said.
Among the expenses are
almost $90,000 for legal
expenses and $11,932 in
operating expenditures, a fig-
ure that includes paying the
salary and benefits for on-site


According to Walgreens,
Dunn called in prescriptions
in her name or the other sus-
pects name, Deputy John
Singha wrote in an arrest
report.
At least one purchase was
made with.a Visa card belong-
ing to Dunn, while two were
made Dunn's Walgreens
express pay account, linked to
her MasterCard, Singha said.
The six prescriptions, all
for 90-count Hydrocodone,

security at the site. The city
has since reduced that expen-
diture by eliminating the on-
site security and installing
security devices, coupled
with routine drive-by inspec-
tions by the Sebring Police
Department.
In fact, he added, while the
city actively continues to
market the historic hotel for
sale, there is enough money
from the Economic
Development Initiative grant
to cover expenses for "several
years" without asking taxpay-
ers for additional money.
Currently, the city's operat-
ing costs for the hotel range
between $20,000 and $25,000
each month, Eastman said.
The 'budget amendment
will be presented at Tuesday's
city council meeting as part of
the consent agenda.


and Dec. 31 of 2007.
No fraudulent activity had
been reported on either card,
Singha said.
Probable cause exists that
Dunn fraudulently called in at
least six prescriptions by hav-
ing access to a doctors Drug
Enforcement Agency number
and the knowledge needed to


call in prescriptions, Singhh
said.
Officials believe Dunn
obtained trafficking amounts
of Hydrocodone on at least
two occasions, Singha added.
Dunn was charged with six
misdemeanor counts of forg-,
ing a prescription and two
counts of trafficking.

Questions and answers about

the Economic Stimulus Package


In all honesty, I
did not think that I
would need to spend
any time talking .
about this topic in
my articles, but evi-
dently there is still a
lot of confusion out
there so here goes.
The 2008 Economic
Stimulus Package
was signed into law
by President Bush
on Feb. 13 and with


Tai
Tal
Bill Be


his signature, provides for
$170 billion in tax breaks
and economic stimulus pay-
ments. Since that date, much
has been written about the
tax breaks and stimulus pay-
ments, but many people still
have questions.
The first question -that I
still seem to be hearing is,
"In order to qualify for the
tax rebate, I must have quali-
fying income, right? So what
is qualifying income?"
Qualifying income is: Form
W-2 wages, net self-employ-
ment and Social Security or
Railroad Retirement benefits
(whether taxable or non-tax-
able). SSI and pension bene-
fits are not qualifying
income.
The second question that I
get asked is,"How much will
my tax rebate be?" Well like
most tax legislation, it
depends. If you have at least
$3,000 of qualifying income,
you will receive a minimum
of $300 if filing single and a
minimum of $600 if filing a
joint based upon your 2007
federal tax return. If the tax
paid on your-2007 tax return
exceeds $300 on a single


return or $600 on a
joint return, you will
"receive $1 for every
dollar of tax you
paid over $300 (fil-
ing single) or $600
(filing joint) up to a
maximum rebate of
$600 if filing single
or $1,200 if filing
X joint. Also, if you
1k have a child (or chil-
nton dren) that lived with
you under the age of
17 as of Dec. 31, 2007, you
will receive an additional
$300 per eligible child. The
exception to all this is if your
Adjusted Gross Income
(AGI) exceeded $75,000 if
filing single or $150,000 if
filing joint on your 2007 tax
return where your tax rebate
amount will be reduced. If
your 2007 AGI exceeded
$87,000 if filing single or
$174,000 if filing joint, then
you will not receive any tax
rebate at all.
The third question that I
get asked is,"If I normally do
not file a federal tax return
(because taxable income does
not exceed allowable
amounts), do I need to file a
2007 tax return to receive my
tax rebate. Yes, the Internal
Revenue Service is using
2007 tax returns as its only
source to determine eligibili-
ty for the tax rebates and cal-
culate the amountlof your
rebate. Therefore, even if
your only source pf income
is Social Security benefits,
you must file a 2007 tax
return. For example: Enter

AT&T Mobility to repay Florida


customers for services called free


By DAVID ROYSE
Associated Press Writer
TALLAHASSEE AT&T
Mobility, the nation's largest
cell phone carrier, has agreed
to pay thousands of Florida
consumers who were billed for
third-party services like ring-
tones and text messaging that
were advertised as free.
The settlement announced
Friday between Florida
Attorney General' Bill
McCollum and AT&T
Mobility could result in
refunds of more than $10 mil-
lion in all, depending on how
many consumers seek com-
pensation.
McCollum said the main
culprits are third-party compa-
nies that advertise ringtones
and other services on the
Internet, often promising that
the service will be free. When
customers often teenagers
- sign up, they or their par-
ents are then surprised to find
charges on their wireless bill.
"They will download this
thinking it's free because the
advertising on the Internet
says it's free," McCollum said.


And when the charge shows up
on the bill, it's not always
clear what it is, either, he
added.
"This advertising is wrong,
it's deceptive ... and it's all
over the Internet," he said.
AT&T Mobility has agreed
in the settlement to police such
agreements with third-party
providers and make it clear
what the charges 'are for.
"It's going to say 'ring-
,tones,' and it's going to give
them an opportunity to can-
cel," McCollum said.
McCollum said his office is
in the process of investigating
other cell phone companies to
determine the extent to which
they're allowing fraudulent
third-party billing, and plans
to push for refund agreements
with all the major providers.
Atlanta-based AT&T
Mobility also noted in a state-
ment that the problem is an
industrywide one, and also
emphasized that it didn't sell
the ringtones or other phone
content, but simply billed its
customers for third-party serv-
ices that they had purchased.


AT&T said it has put safe-
guards in place to help cus-
tomers understand what
they'll be billed for.
Under its practices, "the
customer must take an affir-
mative action sending a text
message before a third-
party provider can sell the cus-
tomer ringtones, graphics,
games, or other content,"
AT&T said. "Third-party
providers must also make clear
the pricing for these services
and how to unsubscribe.
"Said another way, our goal
is no surprises," the company
said.
While praising AT&T for
agreeing to provide refunds
and better police its third-party
agreements, and noting that
the fraudulent advertising was
done by other companies,
McCollum said the wireless
giant' wasn't entirely blame-
less.
I "They did have misleading
billing," McCollum. said. He
also noted that AT&T got
about 40 percent of the
charges for third-party servic-
es billed to their customers.

Continued from 9A
the "Oven-Toasted" result.
Dunkin' Donuts' new Oven-
Toasting process enhances the
taste and quality of Dunkin'
Donuts' current breakfast
menu. Breakfast sandwiches
are cooked evenly and thor-
oughly, sealing in flavor,
caramelizing meats, creating
a fluffier egg and crisping the
bread. Bakery items such as
muffins and croissants are
also now served warm and
lightly toasted upon request.
The new menu is Dunkin'
Donuts' response to on-the-
go, busy lifestyles and chang-
ing consumer eating habits
and expectations. Company
and industry research indi-
cates that today's time-
starved consumer is insisting

Security benefits on Page 1,
Line 14a for Form 1040A or
'Page 1, Line 20a for Form

should be left blank if none
of your Social Security bene-
fits are taxable.
The fourth question that I
am getting asked is, "When
will I receive my tax rebate?'
Most people will receive a
notice from the Internal
Revenue Service, most likely
in April, explaining their eli-
gibility and rebate amounts
based upon their 2007 federal
tax return. Rebate checks
will then be cut in May 2008
to those that have already
filed a federal tax return and
are eligible for the stimulus
rebate. All payments will be
made by check, so no direct
deposits will be permitted.
The fifth question that I
seem to get asked a lot is,"If
I request an extension of time
to file my 2007 tax return,
will I still get a tax rebate?"
The answer is yes, but it will
take the IRS approximately
six weeks to process the
stimulus rebates so if you
meet the eligibility you
should look for the IRS
notice within four weeks of
'filing your 2007 tax return.
fhe last question I want to
address in this article
is,"What if I do not meet the


on quick,'high-quality food
and beverage offerings that
are convenient, portable and
not limited by time of day.
Customers want flexibility
and having hash browns, flat-
'bread sandwiches and person-
al pizza available anytime
allows Dunkin' Donuts to
break the limitation of tradi-
tional menu barriers.
"People will no longer
accept being offered breakfast
only in the mornings or sand-
wiches only in the afternoon,"
says Will Kussell, president
and chief brand officer of
Dunkin' Donuts Worldwide.
"Customers love Dunkin'
Donut4 current menu items,
and now they can enjoy more
choices to keep them going
any time of day without com-
promising on quality or taste.
They want a full variety of


eligibility on my 2007 tax
return, but my situation
changes where I meet all the
eligibility in 2008?" Your
eligibility for the economic
stimulus rebates,is really
based on your 2008 return;
however, the only way that
the IRS has to estimate eligi-
bility is from the 2007 tax
return that you file. If, in
2008, you meet all the eligi-
bility criteria (for example,
maybe an individual filing as
single has 2007 AGI of
$90,000 because of a bonus,
but only an AGI of $75,000
in 2008), then you can take a
tax credit on your 2008 tax
1 return equal to the amount
that your tax rebate would

mitted to expanding its num-
ber of existing U.S. shops,
moving into neW. markets
while expanding in its current

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop

A new day
As shared already, my
husband, Ken, retired
Feb. 29. On March 1, we
awakened to a new day -
a new season in life.
Still, we have only 24
hours in which to accom-
plish that which the Lord
gives us to do. But, as we
have looked back and
looked ahead, we have
been trying to prepare
ourselves for the changes
this new day is bringing.
Certain routines have
become ... well, routine.
And new ones will even-
tually take the place of
old ones.
We don't want to over
plan ourselves; but, by
the same token, we long
to use our time wisely.
Retirement will give us
the freedom from needing
to be in a certain place at
a certain time for a deter-
mined number of hours.
Yet, if we aren't care-
ful, that freedom could
get out of hand and rob
us of effectiveness.
Our typical routines
had included early rising
for exercise and devo-
tions' for Ken followed by
me arising a little later
for my quiet time.
When he finished devo-
tions, he got ready for
work while I completed
my quiet time and then
headed for the kitchen to
prepare his lunch.
Breakfast together fol-
lowed after which I got
ready to take him to
work. Then I walked or
exercised at home.
That routine will
change and fit differently
into our day; but not the
elements of it that help
keep body, mind and spir-
it healthy.
The temptation will be
to sleep in because we
can! And, some of that
may even be therapeutic.
But, we must find the bal-
ance.
As far as I know, the
word 'retirement' isn't in
the Bible. Rather we see
productive people till the
end of their lives. One of
my favorites is Caleb in
the Old Testament. He
was one of the men who
spied out the land of
Canaan that God had
promised to give to the
children of Israel. But,
only he and Joshua
believed God. The others
turned back in fear.
Yet, because of his
faithfulness, God prom-
ised Caleb that he would
enter the land. In Joshua
14: 11 & 13, NKJV, I like
Caleb's words, "As yet I
am as strong this day as
on the day that Moses
sent me; just as my
strength was then, so now
is my strength ... and
Joshua blessed him and
gave Hebron to Caleb ..
as an inheritance."
He had been 40 when
he spied out the land;
when he received his
inheritance he was 85.
And, so, as we
"retread" and allow God
to direct our steps for the
future, we pray that with
Caleb we also will be
able to maintain our
strength for his glory.
Selah

What kind of tree is right for me?


In school, children learn that planting
a tree can help planet Earth. Planting a
tree also can help the environment in
your own backyard or community. Trees
provide a multitude of benefits. They
can reduce your heating and cooling
costs, help clean the air, add beauty and
color, provide shelter from the wind and
sun, and be home to many different
types of wildlife.
Once you decide to plant a tree, do
you know what kind of tree you want?
Here are some tips to help you decide.
One of the first steps is to decide
what you want the tree to do for you.
Do you want to attract wildlife? Are
you concerned about shade or a wind-
break for your home? Do you want to
.enjoy tree-ripened fruit? Are you will-
ing to clean up after the fallen fruit or
do you prefer a less messy tree.?
Consider how the tree you purchase
will fit into your overall landscape.
Then, look closely at the area where
you will put the tree. There may be
other elements in your yard to consider.
Perhaps you have a grand old sycamore
tree that a shade loving redbud could
grow near. Do you have room for a tree,
such as the hackberry, that giows to 100
feet tall?
Plant only low-growing trees under
power lines to prevent future hazards


News
From The
Watershed


Corine Burgess


and bad pruning jobs.
Look at the soil conditions. If you
have a wet.area, trees that do not mind
getting their roots wet, such as willows,
are a good choice.
Look at the trees in your neighbor-
hood, too. Planting too many of the
same tree species may lead to trouble.
Many people still remember the devas-
tation seen when Dutch elm disease
struck in many American towns. So
many of the statuesque trees lined the
boulevards that when the diseased trees
were cut down in an attempt to save


others, trees became scarce. Diversity in
a community will promote good tree
health and be more visually pleasing.
Consider planting tree species that are
native to your area. They generally will
live longer and require less care than
introduced tree species.
Find out if there are tree ordinances
in your community. Some tree species
are considered nuisances. Some may
require a permit prior to planting. And,
there may be regulations regarding the
species of trees that can be planted in
community areas such as parking lots.
The most important thing is--do your
part to help planet Earth in your corner
of the world. Plant a tree in your back-
yard.

tices, visit the Natural Resources
Conservation Service online at

Sebring

songsters

to sing in

Branson
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING If standing
ovations are any indication,
the popularity of a new name
coming to a stage in Branson
has already been proven.
Carol Kline has established
herself across the country as a
bright star on the entertain-
ment horizon, and she will
make her Branson debut
Sunday, Sept. 7, at the God
and Country Theatre, 1840
W. Hwy. 76 in Branson, Mo.
Her two-hour "Cabaret
/Country/ Gospel Special"
will start at 4 p.m.
Originally from
Pennsylvania, Carol and her
husband, George, began
singing with a gospel group
out of Harrisburg, Pa., in the
early 1980s. Although strong-
ly rooted in gospel music,
Carol continued to expand
.their music venue through the
years to include all-time
country greats and popular
favorites, and even launched.
a very well received Tribute
to Patsy Cline Show in 1999.
An all-new Fabulous
Fifties Show has now been
added, bringing the best of
bop to the stage along with
Carol's own enthusiasm,
energy and humor!
The Klines make their
home in Sebring now, but
travel in their motor home at
least four to five months
across the country in the sum-
mer performing at churches,
RV resorts, country clubs,
civic organizations and spe-
cial events, etc. During the
winter, they are kept busy
doing shows and concerts all
over Florida.
:, They have performed at
some of the most beautiful
retirement resorts and coun-
try clubs in Florida, including
The Villages (near Ocala),
The Cbolonnades On-Top-
Of-the-World in Ocala,
Traveler's Rest RV Resort in
Dade City, the lovely
Landmark in North Naples,
Tanglewood of Sebring, the
Port Charlotte Cultural
Center, and many more.
With five CDs to her cred-
it, Kline has opened for such
well known performers as
The Flamingos ("I Only Have
Eyes For You") and the Hager
Twins (of "Hee Haw" fame).
They have performed on
two Carnival cruise ships in
addition to performing in
Delaware, Maryland,
Virginia, Iowa, Indiana, New
York and Ohio, as well as
throughout Pennsylvania and
Florida.
Adding a show in Branson,
Missouri to that impressive
list is a "a dream come true"
according to Kline.
Kline's two-hour produc-
tion will include songs from
the '40s, '50s, and '60s, a
salute to country singer, Eddy
Arnold, a powerful patriotic
tribute, and a moving gospel
segment. Tickets will be
available soon at the God and
Country Theatre, and the
show is set for Sunday, Sept.
7, at 4 p.m.
Call the theatre (417) 334-
6806 for more information.
For Florida-goers, a bus trip
from Sebring to Branson is
already in the planning.

Delayed gratification and the piggy bank


A conversation with my son, Chris, during
a college break some years ago is a blessing I
treasure.
Many years before, I'd been a single mom
for about seven years. Finances were tight.
There were things I wished I could get for
him, but instead we'd have looking days at
the toy store.
Some substitute activity that didn't require
money often took the place of something else
we may have done had finances permitted.
However, when that hoped for toy was
under the Christmas tree instead of acquired
in the summer when first desired, the excite-
ment was no less genuine. When we ice skat-
ed on a frozen pond in the winter instead of
paying at an indoor rink, our rosy cheeks and
cold breath were rewarded with hot chocolate
at home.
This particular day during college break,
we were reminiscing. I said something about
the financial struggle in those years and that
we h4d to do without some things.
He looked up at me amazed.
"Like what?" he questioned.
I outlined a few things and said, "But,
then, you learned delayed gratification and
that was good."
He replied that he wouldn't have wanted
me to have done anything differently. Our
time together, the memories shared and the
love expressed were far more important to
him than any "thing" he may have missed or
had to wait for. And his own money manage-
ment skills attest to his teachable spirit dur-
ing those years.
It is so important that we teach our chil-
dren the value of saving and managing money
well. It may start with that long forgotten
piggy bank which has been replaced by magic
plastic cards.
Training them from their youth will pre-
vent a sense of entitlement from creeping in.
Then their wants won't become a contest
between parents' will power to say no and
their whining insistence for immediate grati-


ilAK L


fiction.
Delayed gratification builds character. In
life, we will always have situations that
require us to wait. This principle will help
children grow into patient adults who aren't
impulsive spenders weighed down with debt
and regret.
Our children are growing up in a world
where debt appears to be normal. But it is not
normal or healthy. A home mortgage may be
necessary for a time, but even that should be
within one's means and paid down as quickly
as possible.
Teach a child that there are three categories
for the money they receive giving, saving
and spending. This develops healthy habits
that will bless others, secure their financial
future and allow them a measure to spend.
In fact, one of the most important giving
areas is to teach them about tithing that is
putting 10 percent aside to give to God's
work. They will know his blessings that will
be multiplied in many ways not always
materially yet always good from his hand.
The Bible teaches that we are to be good
managers of that which God entrusts to us.
As we see in I Corinthians 4: 2, NKJV,
"Moreover it is required in stewards that one
be found faithful."
Let's instill this virtue in our children so
they will grow to be responsible adults who
are part of the solution instead of being part
of the problem.

Parenting by Heart is a monthly column written by
Jan Merop of Sebring.

ings for the first session. To

St.' Ltak-5:5-6, "And Simon
answering said unto him,
.- Master, we have toiled all
the night. and have taken
nothing: nevertheless at thy
word I will let down the net.
And when they had this
done, they inclosed a great
multitude offishes: and their net brake." In
the above scriptures, Peter chose to obey
Jesus and as a result he experienced a
stunning display of divine power. In our
obedience to God and His word it may
sometime require doing some things that
appear to be unreasonable. Our obedience
to God should never be based on whether
something seeins fitting to our way of
thinking. That is -not to say God always
bypasses common n.e, but oftentimes
what He reqiiiresIofL, may not appear
reasonable or nW'_.. our preconceived
ideas. Disobedien,_.l cause us to miss
out on what Godh'f," in stored for us.
Nothing pleases a more than to have
their children i\'ali. obedience. God is
even more please,. i His children are
walking in obedie" Blessed!.

Topa's clutch hit wins one for Devils


News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE
Kyle Jackson unwinds to fire one home Friday night.
Jackson pitched effective relief, allowing for a late rally in
the Devils 6-5 win .over visiting Palmetto.


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK It was a
Hollywood ending to a regu-
lar season district game
between the Avon Park Red
Devils and the Palmetto
Tigers at Head 'Field on
Friday night.
It was the bottom of the
seventh inning, and the Red
Devils were down 5-4.
The scoreboard showed
that Avon Park gave up just
three hits in the game, but
errors allowed the Tigers to
stay out in front of the Devils
all night.
Dillon Runner's solo homer
in the bottom of the fourth
tied the game three all, but a
series of errors by the Devils
forced them into playing


catch-up baseball with the
Tigers picking up runs in the
top of the fifth and the sev-
enth.
But the Red Devil bats
were not put away when they
took their turn
Avon Park in the seventh.
A walk put
Avon Park's
.6 Terrell Conner
Palmetto on base, and a
sac bunt by
5 Logan Hunter
advanced the
runner to sec-
ond.
Kyle Jackson's stand-up
double allowed Conner to
score, tying up the game.
Next at bat, with the win-
ning run on second base,

tent bat frightened the Tigers,
was intentionally walked.
Now with runners on first
and second, Corey Topa
stepped to the plate.
"I was hoping to get a
chance to bat, I knew I could
do my job if given the
chance," said Topa with a

Mr. Ed
Said
Ed Baldridge

We're talking'
baseball,

Americana and

spittin' seeds

George Orwell, that
infamous author of
Animal Farm and 1984,
pessimistically said that
all writers have multiple
reasons for doing what
they do.
Some reasons they
keep to themselves, some
they share with others,
and some even they don't
know about.
To old George, writers
are mostly driven by self-
ishness and vanity, and .
possibly other dark
motives.
All I can say.is that
this insightful writer
never got to write about
baseball.
Leaving aside the smell
of the wood or the way
the crack of a bat feels,
just about everyone talks
about that, I've come up
with a few reasons why I
love to write about base-
ball.
First, and foremost in
my mind, baseball is one
of those tastes of
Americana that we share,
all of us.
When you watch TV, or
drive by the local pizza
joint, you* can always find
someone who is talking
about baseball.
Go anywhere is this
great country, and you
can find someone who
will talk with you about
baseball.
Most of the folks can
talk about the stats.
Stats are technical and
make you sound smart.
Those who can't quote
stats, can always fall back
on one of the good 'ol
phrases like, "If they just
had better hitting."

SENIORS
Continued from 1C
Doug Hammond hit 5-for-5
with a triple and 4 singles.
Going 4-for-5 for the Palms
were Don Thomas, Bob
Weiss and Mo Pier.
The Bankers highest hit-
ters, going 3-for-5, were
Pierre Boissonneault, Carl
Puffenberger, Stu Hayner and
Shaun Kilduff.
A moderate wind was play-
ing its own game Tuesday,
Feb. 26 at the Complex,
seemingly to keep scores
within bounds.
From all eight teams, there
were only four home runs,
two triples and two doubles
recorded in Sebring Senior
League play.
Reflections The closest
16 scoring game
was between
Royal Palm
Klingons and Reflect-
S ions, a tight
( 0 game begin-
ning in the
first inning with a 2-1 count.
They tied 13-13 in the sixth
inning and Palm squeezed out
one more run to wrap up the
win.
Palms' Bobby Weiss hit 3-
for-3 including a triple, Joe
Healey had 4-for-4 including
a double, and Charley Quinn
was 2-for-3 with a double.
Reflections' Bill Yeager
went 4-for-5.
Joe Hyzny and Cal Bready
each had three hits in their
three at-bats.
Another close game was
between Discount Aluminum
and Highlands Independent
Bank Avon Park with an 18-
14 Aluminum win.
Aluminum banged out five
runs in the first inning.
The Teams were tied 13-13
at the end of six innings, then
Aluminum scored five runs in
the seventh.-
The Bank could then pro-
duced only one run for a rally
that came up short.
Aluminum's Jim Hensley
and Rod Palmer each rapped
a home run. Hitting 4-for-4
S were Rudy Pribble and James
'" Gilbert. Jim Larnard and Bill
Todd had 3-for-4.
The Bank's Pierre
Boissonneault was also a
home run hitter. Charley
Williams .went 4-for-5 and
Shaun Kilduff was 3-for-4.
Klingons and Highlands
Independent Bank Sebring
battled the wind in their
infield plays.
Royal Palm
That kept
24 their score
close until the
HIBAP bottom of the
seventh when
S Klingons got
the upperhand
by scoring
four runs.
The Bank only retaliated
with two runs, falling behind
with a 9-2 finale.
Klingons main hitter was
Larry Ambuel going 4-for-4.
The Bank's Jerry Kapalin
delivered some excellent
pitches and Paul BuBrule and
Bob Warren each hit 2-for-3.
The Rebels took a backseat
to Silent Salesman. The
Salesman jumped to an 8-0
lead in the first and second
innings and cruised to a 16-3
victory.
Good defense was dis-
played by both teams.
The defensive highlight for
the Salesman was a leaping
"ice cream cone" catch by
Jerry Johnston.
With bases loaded for the
Rebels, the "catch" came off
the bat of Moose Morrissette
who momentarily thought he
had another one of his well-
known grand slams only to
have to walk back to the
bench empty handed.
Top batters for the
Salesman were Jerry


Johnston 4-for-4, Marvin
Knutilla 3-for-4 and Bob
Flack 3-for-3.
An unusual statistic for the
Salesman was that the last
three men in the batting
order, Kenneth Filppula, Bob
,Flack and Leo Lypps, were
responsible for six ,of the
scored runs.
Thanks to all of the devot-
ed supporters who braved the
very un-Florida-like weather
conditions.

The Sebring girls tennis
team rolled to another win
Thursday, moving its' record
to 5-0 with a 6-1 win at Lake
Placid.
It was the Lady Dragons,-
however, breathing the first
fire at number one singles

ed Mary Midence 6-2, 7-6 (7-
2).
But it was a clean sweep for
the Streaks from that point on

had a little hiccup in the sixth.
Tiger second-sacker Karee
Dozier lead off with a double
to center and eventually came
in on a ground out.
By then, however, Sebring
had picked up another run
when Grimaldo's line-drive
double turned into a full-cir-
cuit tour of the bases on a
Palmetto error in the third.
With just three outs to go to
seal the deal, Helms-cranked
it up to another gear, striking
out the side in the seventh to
give her eight K's on the night
with just four hits given up.
"Avon Park told us
Palmetto was pretty good,"


'Avon Park told

tom of the sixth for the game.
At first look, the first game
of the double header seemed
to be going against the
Panthers in the first
inning. El
Giving up two runs, 13
starting left hander 6
Andrew Barbosa left
the game early, with
complaints about pain 5
in his shoulder, appar-
ently from muscle strain, but
the Panthers were able to
pickup two. runs of their own
before the inning ended.
Cameron Nelson replaced


Barbosa on the mound, but
only pitched one inning, giv-
ing up one hit and adding
three strikeouts to his stats
before being replaced Cory
Ritter who would pitch the
rest of the game.
The bottom of the
second inning
1 belonged to the
Panthers, who picked
,CC up six more runs:
The SFCC sluggers
S1 v would score again in
i the fifth, securing
three runs, and in the
bottom of the sixth, when
they netted two.
The Cougars were able to
score in the sixth, when an


overthrown ball. created an
error and Cougar Allan Heney
stretched a single to a double.
A sacrifice hit and a wild
pitch would bring him home.
But the Cougars were not
able to consistently hit Ritter,
and the game ended with the
Panthers out front 13-5.
The win over the Cougars'
brings the Panthers to a 16-10
overall record for the season.
A record they tried to add
,to Saturday at Seminole
Community College in
Sanford before returning
home today for a Sunday
afternoon affair with Florida
Community College of
Jacksonville paying a visit.


llth Annual Lake Placid Bass


Tournament casts off next weekend


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.comi
LAKE PLACID Ohly a
week remains until the llth
Annual Greater Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce Bass
tournament, which in the past
has drawn entrants from a tal-
ented local pool of fishermen
and across the state.
Fishing will take place in
Lake June this year, and while
there has been a drought, bass
have not been affected,
Norman Lee of Lake Placid
Marine said.


"We are expecting some big
weights to be weighed in this
year," he said, recalling total
weights from years past to
total 25 pounds or more.
Five fish make up the total
weight a team brings in, with
only five fish allowed in a
boat at one time.
The chamber event can
attract a crowd for the weigh-
in, Lee said.
Visit the Ball Park Ramp at
Lake June by the 2:30 p.m.
start of weigh-in to catch the
excitement as a spectator.


To get involved in the
action, spots are still avail-
able.
The entry fee for a two-man
team is $100.
Included in the price is $10
put towards bringing in the
largest bass.
Last year the tournament
brought in 35 boats, but this
year only 19 have registered
as of Friday.
Contact Norman Lee at
Lake Placid Marine, 441-
0297 for more information.


MR. ED
Continued from 1C
Everyone around nods know-
ingly and says "Yep."
Sunflower seeds and spit-
ting. No where else will my
wife let me chew sunflower
seeds and spit.
Spitting is a sport we did
as kids, we spit watermelon
seeds, our gum, spit wads.
Bad as it may sound, there
is a bit of play in spitting,
and chewing those seeds and
spitting out the hulls is an.
accepted way to enjoy some
of those younger days when
you are on the ball field.
Actually, there is an art to
breaking the shell open,
extracting the seed, and then
spitting out the hull without
it clinging to the front of
your shirt.
Besides., they are good for
you.
There is drama in baseball,
no matter what level of game
you are watching.
Even when nothing hap-
pens for several innings, the
tension is there. And drama
is tension.


iews
tip.


There is always that
chance that something will
break.
A bottled up
excitement ever present, and
a chance for that exceptional
error or play.
Every baseball game is a
short story to me.
As a sportswriter, I found
that the most boring thing to
write, and to read, is the
actual play by play. It is good
for radio, but not for writers.
But, in baseball there is
always a story that jumps
right out there.
Titles like, "Their bats did
the talking," or "Errors cost
them the title," just draws
you into the story, and almost
write themselves.
A certain lore surrounds
the game of baseball, along
with some charming and
occasionally apocryphal
tales.
One of my favorite legends
in baseball was Yogi Berra.
Both a player and a man-
ager, Berra was called the
"the toughest man in the
league in the last three
innings."
Known for hitting bad


pitches, he could swing the
bat like a golf club, pulling
low pitches up for homers,
and clip high pitches for hot
line drives.
He was one of the most
colorful and outspoken peo-
ple who ever lived. A.real
character who was invented
by the sport.
It is said that when intro-
duced'to Ernest Hemingway,
he didn't ask about what deep
and complex matters drove
him to put words on a page.
He asked "What paper you
write for, Ernie?"
But my favorite all time
Yogi Berra quote: "You can
observe a lot just by watch-
ing."
That's what I do when sent
out to cover baseball.
See, Orwell never got to
write about baseball, as deep
as he was, and I think he
missed something.
I get to watch America's -
most famous game, enjoy
some of my youth, and I get
paid for it to boot.
Now you know, but please
don't tell my wife.
She thinks I'm out there
working.

DEVILS
Continued from 1C
Red Devils to walk off with
the win.
"It was a textbook come-
back," said Avon Park's head
coach Mort Jackson. "We
struggled with our pitching in


the first inning, and Kyle
(Jackson) comes in to pitch a
gutsy game for us. Runner's
homer kept us in the game,
and then we did everything
right. We had a good bunt,
and a great hit by Topa. We
need to work on our errors,
we are averaging four per
game, but it, was a textbook


inning. I am very proud of our
guys tonight."
The win over the Tigers
puts the Red Devils record at
4-3 overall, and 2-1 in the
District 10-4A race.
The Red Devils will look to
increase both records when
they next play on Tuesday,
March 4 at DeSoto.

I Saturday, March 8th, Wells Dodge Chrysler in Avon Park will be kicking off speed-
week with their annual Classic Car Show. For ten consecutive years, Wells has hosted
Highlands County's largest car show on the Saturday preceding the 12 hours of Sebring
endurance race. .
Over the years, the car show has grown to over 125 exhibited vehicles including
antiques, classics, muscle cars, rods and race cars. Because the event is free of charge
to both exhibitors and spectators, the show draws thousands of visitors.
The show is unique in several ways. First, it is open to many classes of vehicles.
It's rare that you can look at a 1926 Model T, then walk 20 yards and see a nitro blown
dragster. For an extra thrill for both kids and dads alike, the race drivers will start those
heart pounding, pulse racing machines and rattle the windows on the car showroom.
Secondly, with no entrance free and no judging, people who have been hesitant in
the past, have brought their rare vehicle for a one-time display. For example, we have
had a limited production Dodge Charger of which only 500 were produced in order to meet NASCAR's requirements.
Some of Chrysler's latest vehicles will also be on display including the 2009 Dodge Journey, the newest crossover vehicle in America,
the 2008 Dodge SRT8 Super Bee in. Petty Blue with 425 horsepower, and the 2008 Chrysler Sebring Hardtop Convertible.
This is a great family outing. 'For some it is a stroll down memory lane and for others it is a future dream. This year's car show is
from 9am-2pm on Saturday March 8th. Wells Dodge Chrysler is located on US 27 between Avon Park and Sebring.


Refreshments will be available.
For more information, call Wells
Dodge Chrysler, 453-6644.

Challenger
Coming To
Wells
Dodge
Chrysler


Avon Park- It has been
announced that Wells
Dodge Chrysler in Avon
Park will be receiving one
2008 Dodge Challenger
SRT8 this summer. The
2008 model will be a lim-
ited addition model and
will only be available in
the high performance
SRT8 rendition. The 2009
model will be available
later in the fall and will be
available with a choice of
engines and transmis-
sions.
Following much anticipa-
tion and desire to own the
"first" Challenger in
Highlands County the
Wells dealership man-
agement has decided to
auction off the '08 vehicle
following several weeks
of showroom display. All
profits above MSRP will
be donated to charity.
Watch the Wells Dodge
Chrysler website,
www.wellsdodgechrysler.co
m for details and auction
registration.
