'Would you eat in the bathroom?'

Woman told (illegally) not to breast-feed at Sebring Social Security office


Volume 89/Number 37 50 cents


By KEVIN J. SHUTT

:,SEBRING The Florida breast-
feeding law has been in effect since
1993. but it was news Tuesday to a
security guard at Sebring's Social
Security Office.
Andra Motsinger, 23, had a trau-
matic experience while waiting in
line at the office to get a Social
Security card for her two-month-
old son, Jayce Brave.
"It hurt me so bad," Motsinger
said, explaining a the security
guard threatened to call the police


because she .was breast-feeding
Jayce in the waiting area of the
Social Security Office.
The infant had just received his
shots and was hungry, not a great
combination for a mom waiting in
line with her 4-year-old in tow.
Motsinger was wearing a nursing
shirt and used a blanket to cover
Jayce. while he suckled from her
breast. Next to them, another moth-
er was bottle-feeding her child.
The guard approached Motsinger
and told her that she couldn't do
that in public. He invited her to


take the feeding, to the rest room.
"Would you eat in the' bath-
room?" she said during a phone
interview Tuesday afternoon.
She called Maryanne Tanguay-
Higgins, the Health Department's
internationally board certified lac-
tation consultant.-
Higgins, drove to the Social
Security Office to bring its staff up
to speed on Florida's law, which
allows breast-feeding anywhere,
public or pri\jate, regardless of

LAKE PLACID Highway Park has
a long history. On the southeast side of
town, isolated and largely ignored for
decades, it was a family community of
black migrant workers, most following
the harvests up north.
Long an area consigned to low-
income housing, no efforts were made
to create adequate codes or zoning, so
from the very start the roads were
uncomfortably narrow and house plots
very small. So small in fact, that the
septic tanks soon collapsed in on one
another, contaminating the well water to
the point that, for decades, water had to
be brought in.
But the story of Highway Park is not
one of failure, because its people have
consistently worked on behalf of their


children.
The Reverend'Major Callahan, for
' example, buying what was left of Carver
Elementary School when the school
board closed it down and it was dam-
aged by vandals, then building around
it, created a church with outreach into
the community.
When the Redlands Christian Migrant
Association approached him 30 years
ago to'lease the old school buildings for
a child development center, he was only
too pleased to say yes.
"We're all together on working with
the kids," Callahan said recently, paus-
ing in his task of raking leaves while
getting his church grounds cleared for
Easter. "They do a great job. We've had
a good relationship"

proposal

Disagrees with Guy

By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Avon Park
City Council member George
Hall voiced his disagreement
on Monday night over a
recent movement by
Highland l County
Commissioners to roll back
adopted impact development
fees, saying that impact fees
have been hijacked by special
interest groups.
"I read in the papers that
the county is trying to roll
back impact fees, and they
are not discussing it with us,"
Hall said. "I disagree with
what (County commissioner)
Guy Maxcy is doing. I think a
stimulus package should help
all the county and not just a
specific part or a small
group."
Maxcy introduced a letter
to fellow commissioners on
Feb. 15 and followed up on
Feb. 19 asking staff to,
among other things, "investi-
gate the feasibility and legal-
ity of suspending certain fees
such as impact fees, building
permits, planning fees, site
plan fees, re-zoning fees and

Former Sebring International Raceway owner headed to prison


Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE Michael Lee
Cone, owner of a Tampa construc.-
tion company and former owner of
Sebring International Raceway, has
been sentenced to five years in
prison and five years probation for
his involvement int an organized
scheme to defraud.
Cone, president and owner of
Cone Constructors Inc., was previ-
ously convicted in a jury trial of


defrauding the Florida Department
of Transportation and various sub-
contractors.,The case was prosecuted
by the Attorney General's Office of
Statewide Prosecution.
Cone bought the long-term rights
for the Sebring International
Raceway from the Sebring\ Airport
Authority in 1989, the same year he
also bought the International Motor
Sports Association (IMSA), which
was the sanctioning body for the 12


Hours of Sebring.
From 1991-96, Cone was listed as
the promoter of the Race. He then
sold Sebring International Raceway
to Andy Evans, who, after a rocky 11
months during which he alienated
almost every racing fan on' the plan-
et, sold. it to current owner Don
Panoz.
According to a press release by
Attorney General Bill McCollum,
from July 1999 through May 2000,


Cone's road building company was
the general contractor on sections of
the Suncoast Parkway in
Hillsborough and Pasco counties.
The Department of Transportation
paid the company a monthly
progress payment and from that sum,
the company was supposed to pay its
subcontractors their shares for work
done during that month. The compa-
ny was also required to certify under
oath that it had paid all of its sub-


contractors their shares of previous
monthly payments before it could
get any of the following monthly
payments.
Investigators with the Department
of Transportafion's Office of
Inspector General determined that
Cone and his company engaged in a
scheme to defraud some of its sub-
contractors by not paying them their

Macklin



issued


trespass



warning

Dispute stems from
failed 2006 illegal
immigration ordinance
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
AVON PARK Former
mayor Tom Macklin said
Dora Smith did him a favor
by issuing a trespass warning
letter listing more than 50'
properties she owns.
In no uncertain terms,
Smith warned Macklin she
would pursue criminal misde-
meanor charges if he entered
any of her properties.
"It's not something I want-
ed to do," she said Tuesday.
Macklin and the Smiths
(Dora and husband Alvin)
have been at odds since
Macklin proposed' a 2006
ordinance that would have
given the city a method to
deal with illegal immigration
instead of relying on the fed-
eral government.
Though his measure failed
amid national scrutiny and
support, it resulted in last
year's passage of a landlord
ordinance that requires the
permitting of rental proper-
ties within Avon Park's city
limits.
On a Sunday evening in
February, Macklin received a
call from Pat Vance, who
called Avon Park Police
Department complaining
about loud

from 18 A
Miracle Ave.,
several houses
from her own.
She told
Macklin that
Macklin dispatch said
it was a code
enforcement issue, not law
enforcement.
Concerned the police
department might not
respond, Macklin went to
Vance's neighborhood.
"She said they had been
playing real loud bumpity-
bump-bump music," Macklin
said, adding she saw 20-30
males coming and going from
the residence on a regular
basis.
APPD sent a unit, but a
report wasn't generated
because the officer didn't
witness loud music.
That was Feb. 24.
Macklin discussed the
issue at the Feb. 25 council
meeting, reiterating the city's
new code limiting occupants
to no more than five unrelat-
ed people.
"It upset me the way I
found out," Smith said,
explaining she was watching
the council meeting on televi-
sion when Macklin spoke
about her property during the
meeting. "Nobody had
informed me that there was a
problem with one of my
apartments, or an alleged
problem."
She called Avon Park's
code enforcement office, who
told her there were no prob-
lems and Cmdr. Mike Rowan,
acting chief of police,
allegedly told her Macklin
was spotted on her property.
Rowan said he did not con-
vey to Smith that Macklin
trespassed.
On Tuesday, he clarified
that what he told Smith was
the process to protect herself,


which resulted in her March
18 certified letter to Macklin
warning him to stay off of her
50 listed properties.
Macklin responded with an
American Party of Florida
press release, explaining that,
when he went before the
council in February, he didn't
know who owned the proper-
ty in question.
"As usual, the one with the
guilty conscience screams the
loudest," Macklin's release
said. "I guess that's why they
sent their letter."

Nothing to 'wine' about

Amidst store closings in downtown Sebring, the

Wine Merchant stands out as an early success


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun .com
SEBRING Amidst the
recent spate of store closings
and the rows of now or soon-
to-be-vacant storefronts on
the historic downtown Circle
sits the Wine Merchant, the
district's newest business.
While other businesses in the
area have run. into trouble,
the Wine Merchant and
owner/operator Dawn
Hamilton have carved its
niche into downtown and
become a fast success since
its Nov. 9 opening.
But getting there didn't
happen easily. Hamilton
moved to Highlands County
from Anchorage in 1979 after
her father was stationed in
Avon Park. She stayed until
1986, when she "left to go
out and see the world."
During that time she worked
in bars and restaurants and
got involved in nightclub
management and other
endeavors, mostly in the
Tampa and Brandon area.
However, both of her broth-
ers stayed locally and eventu-
ally talked her into moving
back.
At the time she decided to
return, Hamilton was work-
ing at a winery in Brandon.
She had been in the county
for a while when she was
introduced to Gene Brenner,
owner of the historic (and
then-vacant) Buckeye
Building. Brenner was look-
ing for something different to
go into the building, and he
talked with Hamilton and
convinced her to open up a
new, wine-centered store. But
before the business could
open, Brenner had to go to
the city's Community
Redevelopment Agency
board (which he chairs), and
then to the city council, in
order to change the city's
alcohol ordinance.
From there the process
moved quickly. The change
to the alcohol ordinance won
final approval on Tuesday,
Nov. 6, and the city's
Planning and Zoning Board
gave its approval the next
day. On Thursday, Hamilton


'The Circle needs

to become what

people want, then

those people have
to support it.'

DAWN HAMILTON
Wine Merchant
owner/operator

got her liquor license in
Tampa and on Friday, the
Wine Merchant opened its
doors.

Plenty of opinions,
plenty of solutions
Even though Hamilton has
only been on the Circle for a
few months, she doesn't
mince words when talking
about the Circle's current
state, and how both business
owners and Sebring residents
have a-responsibility to
improve the situation.
"The Circle needs-to
become what people want,
then those people have to
support it," she said. "People
want the Circle to be a desti-
nation, but they won't sup-
port it. Do you want it? Fine,
but you have to support it."
Hamilton has no shortage
of opinions on downtown's
issues, but she's also full of
ideas on how to solve them.
Instead of constantly shutting
down the Circle for events,
she asks, why not do a street
festival on the Sebring
Parkway that downtown ven-
dors can participate in?
Instead of the district effec-
tively shutting down on
Saturday nights she asks,
why not bring live music
there instead?
As for the rash of business
closings downtown, Hamilton
said it isn't necessarily a bad
development.
"I'm sad for them, but
these businesses weren't
attracting people down here,"
she said. "I don't see it as a
negative. It's a great opportu-
nity for young professionals
with money to step up and
say 'What does Sebring


need?' We now have a build-
ing full of vacancies, so step
up and put your money
where your mouth is."
Hamilton is optimistic
about downtown's future, and
she sees no reason why the
Circle can't become an
unmissable attraction.
"Why can't Sebring be
revitalized like other towns?
It's not a lack of money, it's
a lack of desire to put your-
self out there," she said.
"I've put my money where
my mouth is. We need fresh
ideas. We need destination
locations, something unique
and different. We need peo-
ple who aren't afraid to say
no. We need people to invest
in growth and stop bad-
mouthing it."
She also doesn't view the
Greater Sebring Chamber of
Commerce as a solution to
the problem.
, "I'm not a member of the
chamber, and the reason is I
don't see what they're doing
for the Circle," she said.

State audit questions


school board spending


District could lose
more than $108,000;
has changed policy
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun .com
SEBRING More than $3
million spent by the School
Board of Highlands County
during the 2006-07 school
year has been questioned by
Florida's Auditor General.
The report, filed earlier this
month, dealt with concerns
over construction projects
without adequate bids, misap-
propriated funds from ad val-
orem taxes and a questionable
use of Title I funds.
All subcontract work
exceeding $25,000 is required
to be publicly advertised,
with at least three bids.
Ten projects failed to meet
the required bid number -
one had two bids while the,
other nine had only one -
and ranged in cost from
$38,00 for ceramic and quarry
tile, to $897,000 for heating,
ventilating and air condition-
ing.
The bids were contracted
by the construction company
and not directly by the dis-
trict.
Failure to establish controls
that ensured the construction
company obtained at least
three bids may have resulted
in higher project costs, the.
report from the Auditor
General said.
In a response to the audit,
Superintendent Wally Cox
said the district has changed
their procedures to ensure the
construction company con-
tracted to do the work pro-
vides documentation that all
bid requirements specified in
the contract are followed.
The 10 projects cost the
district $2.8 million.
As a result of the audit, the
district stands to outright lose
$108,295 for spending ad val-
orem taxes that were specifi-
cally earmarked for "con-
struction, renovation, remod-
eling, maintenance. and
repair" of school sites "direct-
ly related to the delivery of
student instruction," the
report said.
Two fairway mowers pur-
chased by the district made up
the majority of the allegedly
misappropriated funds.
The rest of the $108,295
was spent on a.scoreboard, a
baseball pitching machine, a
utility mower and a golf cart.
The report argued the items
were not directly related to
student instruction.
According to Florida
Statutes, any money specifi-
cally earmarked from ad val-
orem taxes will be deducted,
dollar for dollar, from the
next year's Florida Education
Finance Program funds.
In response to the findings
Cox wrote, "the district will
document the allowability of
the questioned expenditures
to the Department of
Education."
Though the audit ques-
tioned the usage of Title I


money, it was not spent until
the district filed for a project
to use from a portion of left-
over funds.
A minimum of 20 percent
of Title I money must be
spent on transportation and
supplemental education serv-
ices (SES) of eligible stu-
dents.
SES are extra academic
services offered during off-
school hours to eligible stu-
dents that are attending
schools that have failed to
make adequate yearly
progress.
Due to a lack of interest in
the. programs, the district
applied for a project amend-
ment to transfer $144,891 to
fund district-provided after-
school tutoring programs.
The audit stated there were
deficiencies in the district's
notification to parents of
SES-eligible students and that
may have limited the partici-
pation in the programs.
Of four SES providers,
none would service Lake
Placid or Avon Park, Cox
said, adding that even though
they only operated in the
Sebring area, the demand was
much greater than what could
be provided.
Only after the district
received notification from the
Department of Education
approving the release of funds
were they spent and, in accor-
dance with the Title I grant,
targeting low performing stu-
dents, Cox said.
The number of SES
providers has increased since
last yehr, and the district has
amended its procedures for
the 2007-08 school year to
ensure proper notification of
parents.

AP council


reviews new


Wal-Mart


contracts
By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK The Avon
Park City Council 'approved
two agreements during its
regular meeting on Monday
night that would help move
the opening of the new Wal-
Mart farther along.
Although the Wal-Mart
Web site still states an uncon-
firmed summer of 2008 as an
opening date for the new store
on U.S 27 just inside the
northern city limits, the two
contracts, one concerning the
requested Florida Department
of Transportation signal study
and one concerning the place-
ment of a utilities meter, are a
step in the right direction.
According to City Attorney
Gerald Buhr, the current state
of affairs is not uncommon
when working with Wal-Mart.
"Wal-Mart is a big behe-
moth, and does what it wants
when it wants. A slow
response to exact opening
dates is not unusual," said
Buhr.
The first of the two agree-
ments changes slightly the
location of a utilities meter,
putting it farther into Wal-
Mart property with agree-
ments for the retailer to take
care of more of the mainte-
nance.
The second contract change
concerned the signal light
study requested by the FDOT
at the U.S. 27 and Shop 16
Road intersection.
The agreement was amend-
ed to make Wal-Mart respon-
sible for the purchase, instal-
lation and inspection fees and
the city would only take over
the possession and mainte-
nance of the signal after the
'final inspections were passed.
Ex-Mayor Tom Macklin
Requested that a cro.",. :,l. be
installed if and when a signal
study was included.
Again Buhr volunteered
information, stating, "The
FDOT is just like Wal-Mart.
They do what they want. We
can put in the request for a
crosswalk, but they may not
listen. They will not obligate
themselves to something they
do not need to mandate."
Councilman George Hall
added that the delay .in open-
ing was not because of the'
city dragging its feet or put-
ting up obstacles.
"I want to state for the

Mz. Leap Year raises
money for Project
Graduation at APHS
By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Students
and parents alike showed
their support for Project
Graduation by attending the
Mz. Leap Year 2008 fundrais-
er Saturday night at Avon
Park High School.
The concept for the event,
this year titled "It's All About
Me," is a beauty contest com-
plete with a panel of judges
who score contestants on their
originality, congeniality,
poise and grace.
The twist is that all the con-
testants are guys dressed as
girls.
Between performances of
real girls from Center Stage
Dance Studio, the eight con-
testants took the stage com-
plete with evening wear,
make-up and all the acces-
sories, and answered ques-
tions about everything from
their hopes and aspirations to
what was in their'purse.
Additionally, each of the.
eight contestants were given a
chance to strut their stuff for
the audience on the impromp-
tu runway while emcee Dan
Wilson told a little bit about
their likes and dislikes.
The hilarity continued as
the top four finalists took the
stage and were asked pointed
questions drawn at random.
Third runner-up in the con-
test was "Bobby Jean
Johnson," portrayed by
Manley Crawford. Second
runner up was Mz. "Boom
Shika a.k.a. Coco Puffs," por-
trayed by Sheldon Quick. The
first runner-up was "Hedda
Lettuce" portrayed by Alvin
Dallas.

SEBRING Two repeat
offenders were jailed over
Easter weekend, each charged
with a laundry list of felonies
and misdemeanors.
Clifford Melvin, 39, could
bring his total felony convic-
tions to 30 if he is convicted
of three additional charges
stemming from a traffic stop
Thursday.
Melvin allegedly made a
turn onto Curve Street in
Lake Placid without using his
blinker, and after further
scrutiny Officer Rob Singles
noticed the tag from the silver
Dodge truck was obscured by
the trailer hitch.
After he was issued a ver-
bal warning for the offenses,
Singles asked if he could con-
duct a search.
) Searching the man, Singles
allegedly discovered a burnt
ball of mesh wire in his front
pocket.
The mesh wire tested posi-
tive for cocaine in a field test.
A search of the vehicle
turned up a plastic container
under the driver's seat with
five jeweler bags. One
allegedly contained marijua-
na, and with the bags was a
blue pipe. The leafy green
substance weighed 0.6 grams.
On the passenger side door
was a bottle with a hole in the
bottom and burnt wire mesh
over the top. The wire from
the bottle tested positive for
cocaine in a field test.
An ammunition container
was found in the bed of the
truck, with "several live
rounds of ammunition in var-
ious caliber and quantities,"
Singles said.
A pill bottle prescribed to


another man was uncovered
in the bed of the truck as well,
allegedly containing 20
codeine pills.
Melvin was charged with
possession of ammunition by
a convicted felon, possession
of cocaine, possession of a
controlled -substance without
a prescription, and possession
of marijuana.
He remains in the
Highlands County Jail on
$8,000 bond.
The second offender
allegedly violated an injunc-
tion for Protection against
Repeat Domestic Violence by
showing up at the victim's
residence on Easter Sunday
and kicking in the door.
The 36-year-old Sebring
man then struck a young
child, and didn't allow the
child or mother to leave the
apartment, said Officer James
Green.
To keep the victims from
calling the police, he ripped
the phone cords from the
wall, and when police did
arrive, the .defendant was
"physically and verbally
uncooperative,".Green said.
The arrest report stated the
victims were in fear of the
defendant and his actions, but
refused the offer to be taken
to a safe house and said they
did not require medical treat-
ment.
The defendant was charged
with violating the injunction,
kidnapping an adult, kidnap-
ping a child, burglary with
assault, inflicting physical
injury to a child, and resisting
an officer without violence.
His identity is being withheld
in order to protect the victims.
He was being held without
bond.

Thank you, Dr. Thaqi

Once, years ago, one of our writers was attending a
trade school in Miami.
He was studying how to repair marine outboard
engines when an inspection team was due from
Tallahassee.
This team was looking at safety issues, making sure
there was proper ventilation in the indoor test tank,
for example, and that tools were properly marked and
stowed away.
At the time, one of his fellow students joked about
how the team would have to find something wrong in
order to justify its existence.
But given that the school double checked to be sure
its ventilation was in proper working order, and that
the instructor of the course spent time going over all
the dangerous equipment, to be sure the students
understood how to handle everything safely, the team
justified its existence before it had even arrived.
In other words, nothing wrong was found, because
the safety inspection team had done its job.
So it is with the health department here in
Highlands County. Except the health department is
responsible for so much more than any single inspec-
tion team.
From developing policy, to keeping records, to pro-
viding direct services, a health department staff has to
be able to do it all.
Consider some of the challenges the department,
and its director, Paula Thaqi, have faced in the seven
years of her leadership.
For years the county faced a high teen pregnancy
rate consistently remaining among the top 10
Florida counties.
Thaqi created a full-time coordinator's position and
the county's numbers have dropped to 29th out of 67
counties.
In 2004, when .hurricanes scoured the state again
and again and again, Highlands County residents
returned three times to the special needs shelter, each
time finding a warm welcome, safety, and the neces-
sities, like oxygen, readily available.
Our team at the time reported the refugees were,
mostly relaxed and calm, confident of their own safe-
ty.
But Thaqi's leadership has extended beyond fulfill-
ing mandates.
With her example, the health department is open
and accessible, able to answer questions authorita-
tively in emergencies, like the avian' flu scares, the
outbreak of E Coli in a local restaurant, and the after-
math of the hurricanes when the water treatment
plants were compromised.
In a world fraught with dangers, where rumors can
hurt, it makes all the difference to have an agency
staffed with individuals who know the answers.
Because of Thaqi's dedication to training, assess-
ment and planning, the Highlands County Health
Department is just such an agency; our loss is
Broward County's gain.
However, as Thaqi herself says, fresh eyes are
always a plus.
So we look forward to even greater improvements.
In the meantime, we are dependent upon
Tallahassee as the head of the health department is
a state-appointed position, albeit strongly allied with
county government to appoint the next director, if
a physician, or administrator if not. The position has
to be advertised, and processed by Tallahassee, which
could take weeks, even months.
We hope the wheels of progress work quickly in
this case.
Our best wishes to Robert Palussek, the current
finance and accounting director, who will take over
Thaqi's responsibilities in the interim.
And a sincere thank you for a job well done to Dr.
Thaqi. You will be remembered and missed.

A positive experience
with Musselman's
Editor:
I It is not good news when two major
appliances malfunction during the same
week.
Our relatively new (but out-of-warranty)
washer-dryer stopped working last week.
We made a rushed trip to the
Laundromat to wash and dry our wet and
soapy clothes. (I think that we made a pay-
ment on their machines).
The next day we made the rounds of the
appliance dealers. We signed up and paid
for a pair on the south end of town on
Saturday; delivery to be effected the fol-
lowing Friday. It was not meant to be.
They called and said the pair we had
paid for had been previously sold to some-
one else. They wanted us to come in and
select another pair. I did not feel comfort-
able with the development.
We then went to Mussleman's
Appliances in Sebring. Gary Mussleman
spent all of the time that we needed to help
us pick out fhe washer-drydr that best fit
our needs. He was most patient and cordial
with us; answering all of our concerns,
with honesty and candor. I would give this
experience an "A." The other company
would not get a "B" or even a "C."

Be inspired by the images you take for granted


There are those small, precious
moments in your life that you must
grasp onto. They are those moments
in your life that you may not other-
wise have noticed. These moments
are like a flower peeking its way
through the rocks, with no other
plants around. These moments are
like seeing an eagle, not flapping its
wings, but rather gliding on the air.
Last week, my mother brought a
surprise to me. She said in a mysteri-
ous tone of voice, "I just had to get
this for you. It just, well, reminded
me of you." I am not going to lie,
words like that frighten me a bit. Not
because they are horrible words but
rather because of the fact that some-
thing reminded her of me. Well, I did
not need to fret. For, it was this beau-
tiful shirt with a flower that said, "Be
Inspired."
I thanked her with a hug and went
to put the shirt on. Yet, before I could


Murphy's-
Law
Lindsey Murphy


do this simple act, I gazed at it
awhile. It was almost as if the shirt
reminded me of the world around me.
As I held it in my hands, I saw the
world that inspires me. The images
poured through my mind, almost as if
I was watching a television screen.
I saw that vibrant yellow tree flow-
ers, which I still do not know the


name for, that reminds me that my
Lord will provide for me. I saw the
echoes of red, orange, and yellow that
paints the sky in the early mornings. I
saw the smiles and heard the laughter
of the little children who are just
learning how to walk. And I saw the
elderly couple sharing life together,
still embracing each other's hands.
In that quick moment, I realized all
of the precious images I too often
take for granted. All of these beauti-
ful sights make up the world in which
1 live. I could either decide to rush
through my schedule, as if I had to
run a marathon. Or I could choose to
take a few moments, be inspired, then
set my hands to the task that lays
before me.
I think today I will watch the sun-
set.

Dabbling
With Daniel
Daniel Bedell

A relationship

that's gone south

Dear Michigan,
I have been thinking about you a
lot lately. And I have some things I
need to say to you.
I have come to the conclusion
that you, Michigan, are one big
cosmic do-over. A sort of scratch
paper if you will. A big giant, huge,
huger, giantess "whoops."
It's not that your winter is so
bad. No, if it was just cold and
snow and ice and slippery roads
and never-ending flatness, I could
deal with that. The Michigan prob-
lem is the way you take a perverted
pleasure in torturing me. I can't
take any more of your game of,
"Hey, it's spring, get out your
shorts. Just kidding! It's still winter
and now you are sick."
And your other joke isn't any
better, and don't act like you don't
know what I am talking about.
Your whole, "Hey it's winter get
out your parka and boots and scarf
and gloves and long johns so you
can be warm. Just kidding! Oh,
hey, did you notice you are sweat-
ing like a kid working the fries at
Burger King?"
Yeah funny joke Michigan. Ha
ha ha. You are really clever. Now
cut it out!
What have I done? Michigan,
what was I thinking moving to
you? Why did I ever make fun of
all the geezers who moved down to
Florida for the winter? Please wise
citizens forgive me for all the jokes
I made at your expense at a sound
level that I knew you couldn't hear.
Oh death %k hose name art March
in Michigan, please stop torment-
ing me! What have I ever done to
you? What was it that made you
hate me so? What was it that
inspired you to make it beautiful
and 65 degrees one day and 22
with four inches of snow the next?
Was it the spandex that I had on
to go bike riding that offended
you? Were you angered by the joy
that sprang up in my heart when I
let myself believe your cold icy
press-on nails of winter had been
removed for good?
Whatever I did to displease you
Michigan, I don't deserve this. So
what if I ran away to the warm
embrace of Mexico for a week?
That is still no reason to great me
with this cold icy mother-in-law
kiss of hate. Mexico was just a
friend. Am I not allowed to have
friends? I hate to break it to you,
but I have been with other states.
You aren't my first, and after the
way you have treated me recently, I
can guarantee you won't be my
last.
Look, call me a tramp, call me
whatever want, just bring back the
sun and take away this cold, white
stuff you call snow. Please!
I have gone for three years
telling people that you weren't that
bad, Michigan. I swear I didn't
complain about you behind your
back. But this is just too much.
These seasonal "just kidding"
aren't funny. You snow, and then
you get warm and melt it all, then
you rain, then you freeze every-
thing in sight,-then you snow some
more, then you melt it all and then
you do it all over again. This isn't
how you treat the people you are
supposed to care about.
You aren't Alaska. You aren't
Texas. You don't have to be a jerk
about your weather. Just be nice,
that is all I am asking. Is that really
too much?
Well, anyway, that is all I have
to say. I hope that this all didn't
just make you madder. I am sorry if
I hurt you, I just had to get this off
my chest. Who knows, maybe now
that it is out in the air we will both
feel better.


Oh yeah, and I am sorry you
found out that I am probably going
to hook up with your cousin
Maryland. But hey, if you had been
nicer it might be different.

currently in exile in Michigan attending

New Avon Park vehicle


policy runs out of gas


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK Adoption
of a new vehicle policy
requiring all city employees,
except for the fire and police
chiefs, to leave their city
vehicles at work met with a
cold response from the Avon
Park City Council at its regu-
lar meeting on Monday night.
"Renee and I have been
working on policies and
strategies to lower city
expenses," said
Interim City Manager
Sarah Adelt and
Finance Director
Renee Green in a com- i
bined written state-
ment to the council.
"The vehicle policy
remains one that will Wi
have a significant
impact on our city funding.
We have also been informed
that the county will be
upgrading the fuel site begin-
ning the first of June and will
be out of service for 60-120
days. This may cause us to
travel further to fuel at anoth-
er county site or purchase fuel
locally, paying much more for
each gallon. For this reason
we recommend the adoption
of this vehicle policy and
allow no city cars to be driven
home except for the fire chief
and the police chief for public
safety reasons and to maintain
one call-out truck for emer-
gencies. This will not only
lower our fuel costs but also
lower our maintenance costs
and liability issues."
But the request for a policy
change was met with some

CRA board member Lorrie
Smith said the option of pre-
serving, the brick. should not
be -dismissed, and said. the
CRA and' the Historic
Preservation Commission
should have the opportunity
to review the costs for them-
selves.
"This needs to be an
option," Smith said, adding
that the project could be
stretched out over a six- to
eight-year period to offset the
costs. "Our town is one of the
crown jewels of Highlands
County, and it's part of a his-
toric district. To not give it
more thought than we're giv-
ing it is wrong."
Smith also suggested
implementing a "Save Wall
Street Campaign," where peo-
ple could buy a brick on Wall
Street and defray the costs.
"I would like to see if we
can't go back with brick, but
obviously it all comes down
to money," Smith said. "Let's
see what the price is so we
can make an educated deci-
sion to see if it's totally out of
line."
CRA Director Pollard said
Smith's concerns would be
addressed and the. costs of
brick restoration would be
explored. Pollard brought the
issue of Wall Street to the
CRA board now because he
wanted the street to be
addressed along with discus-
sions of Streetscape Phase IX,
which involves the Circle.
"I would love to see some-
thing to restore Wall Street in
one form and fashion to be
put on the front burner for a
change," he said. "It's always

"I would like to see the

Phase IX, he said, and if the
CRA board determines that
work on Wall Street can be
put off, "then time is not an
issue."
The next step will be a
request from the city's utili-
ties department for a scope of
the Wall Street utilities to see
what condition they are cur-
rently in, "something that
probably should be done any-
way," Pollard said.
As for Streetscape Phase
IX, the CRA board will con-
tinue discussions over the
next months, leading up to the
development of plans and
specifications for the refur-
bishment project. In the grant
process, the city will receive
bonus points if it has a design
and specs already prepared,
making it important for a
basic design concept to be in
place before the grant appli-
cation process begins.
Until those designs are
completed, the potential cost
of the Streetscape project
won't be known, Pollard said.

RCMA
Continued from lA
His church sits kitty-corner
from the RCMA center, they
share shade trees and a park-
ing lot.
Now Callahan, who is 65,
wants to expand his church's
services, and he asked for the
old Carver school buildings
back when the lease expired.
RCMA is taking advantage
of the opportunity to create a
10,000-square-foot building
to include a child develop-
ment center and a community
center where neighborhood
families could celebrate
reunions and the like.,
The county-owned proper-
ty on which the RCMA wants
to build is just yards away
from its current site. The new
space faces Josephine Avenue
and is next to a softball field
and basketball courts.
Charlene Edwards, the
director of operations for
RCMA. hopes to use a mix
of public, private and grant
money for the financing.
A Child Development
Block Grant would provide
$750,000, but the community
has to have raised $300,000
in matching funds by June 1
just to qualify for applying
for the grant.
Leroy McGahee, a retired
pastor with the African
Methodist Episcopal Church,
like the Reverend Callahan,
was born and grew up in
Highway Park.
Both men clearly care
about their neighborhood,
and praise the RCMA not just


for its work with children,
but for giving local adults
meaningful work.
"The center has been a
blessing for 30 years,"
McGahee said "It has clone,
is doing and will do a great
service, such as helping the
young girls having babies
with no place to go. I cannot
understand how people can
be against that."
But Callahan and Theresa

high school right across the
field from RCMA, worry that
times have changed, and that
while the new RCMA might
be local, local children,
whose parents have since left
migrant work, do not qualify
for the programs and are
rejected.
They said that Hispanic
children from the RCMA
Interlake Boulevard site are
brought into the Highway
Park center to fill up classes,
while some nearby children
are turned away.
Twenty Highway Park
families have children at the
center, Edwards said.
Another 40 children are
brought in.

"It happens all the time," Higgins said of
uninformed people hindering the breast-feed-

Being discreet is a natural for most mothers
when it comes to breast-feeding, Higgins said,

which causes the upset.
Edwards said the RCMA is
looking into ways it can to
raise the maximum poverty
line. At the same time, how-
ever, the RCMA wasn't going
waste space when children
were on waiting lists, even if
that meantbringing in chil-
dren from outside the neigh-
borhood.
While Callahan and
Williams have voiced reser-
vations, Callahan, at least,
made it clear that as long as
the center served the neigh-
borhood, he was all behind it.
McGahee was stronger in
his opinion.
"That's foolishness," he
said speaking about the
opposition. "Ninety percent
of the neighborhood are for
it. Take all this unused area
sitting here, owned by the
county hopefully willing
to let the RCMA use it for a
dollar a year lease or whatev-
er and enhance their serv-

no to that?" -

"It's unfortunate these days that most peo-
ple think the breasts are there for making
money." Higgins said.
She said the supervisor at Social Security
was open minded and committed to calling the
security guard's boss to explain the law.
A call to the office at 4:20 p.m. was
answered by an automated system that said the
office was closed. An effort to leave a message
for the supervisor was unsuccessful.
"I think he was uncomfortable with it,"
Higgins said of the guard's reaction to
-Motsinger's breast-feeding.
Motsinger told her story hoping that others
won't experience what she did.

But according to Hall, no

"We have an agreement,"
Hall continued, "and the

discussion group concerning

"People don't have that

why not have 'fast' food

The salad bar offers
approximately 30 items,
including soup, potatoes,

Special guest hops in Reasearch lends hope


., to infertile women


L #Vl


- 6 -


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING A study
authored by Dr. Madeline
Behrendt, chairwoman of the
World Chiropractic Alliance
Council on Woman's Health,
links chiropractic care and the
ability of previously infertile
woman to conceive a baby and
carry the fetus full term.
Behrendt's. work, entitled:
Insult, Interference and
Infertility: An Overview of
Chiropractic Research, was
published in the Journal of
Vertebral Subluxation
Research.
The study tracked 15
women, ages 22-65, who had a
history of fertility problems -
some for as long as nine years.
Eight of the women had previ-
ously undergone unsuccessful
fertility treatments.
These 15 woman entered
chiropractic care. "Each was
determined to close the gap
between how her body was
designed to function and the
reality of how her body was
functioning," Behrendt said.
The results were incredible.
Of the 15 women, 14
became pregnant following
the start of chiropractic adjust-
ments. The 65-year old
woman had ceased having a
menstrual cycle at age 18 fol-
lowing a traumatic fall. Then,
nearly five decades later -
and little more than a month
after starting chiropractic care
- her cycles resumed.
Although she did not get preg-
nant, she was advised to use
birth control.
"Some of the case studies
are remarkable," noted Dr.
John Pepper, a Sebring-based


chiropractor.
Pepper pointed to a 32-year-
old woman described in the
study. "She had no menstrual
cycle for 12 years. She had
attempted multiple fertility
treatments with no success.
After two months of chiro-
practic care with attention
to the lumbar regions men-
struation started.
And, after four cycles, unas-
sisted pregnancy occurred,"
'said Pepper. "I'm not saying
that chiropractic is a specific
cure for infertility, but I will
point to the concept that inter-
ference within your nervous
system can disrupt normal
body functions," he continued.
Also detailed was the plight
of a 26-year-old woman who
suffered from severe scoliosis
with a Cobb's angle of 58
degrees. She too was infertile
despite numerous treatments
to assist conception.
"After six months of chiro-
practic care with adjust-
ments applied to the sacrum,
lumbar and cervical regions -
the Cobb's angle decreased to
47 degrees. One month later,
unassisted pregnancy
occurred," commented Pepper.
The study offers hope to
infertile women and an alter-
native to fertility drugs. There
are 40,000 births in the U.S.
each year that are achieved
using assisted reproductive
technologies.
But, there are yet to be stud-
ies as to the long-term effects
of these drugs nor has there
been a uniform tracking of
birth defects among children
conceived using these meth-
ods.

Friends & Neighbors


SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING We wish to
thank all the people that came
to our garage sale. We also
wish to thank all the people
that set this up, worked on
this and served the food. A lot
of hard work was done. We
also want to thank the people
for the nice donations of items
to sell. We had some nice
things for sale and they were
the first to sell. Ed will not
have any trouble sleeping
after this. Carl did the thing
for the club that he likes the
least, collected all the money
both days and he would rather
eat worms than handle money.
Tony Beckwith has not
been with .us lately and I
heard today that he fell while
bike riding and twisted his
knee. It was said that he may
be too clumsy to ride two
wheels and should consider a
three-wheeler if anything.
You see, Tony is getting older
and we all miss him and want
the best for him. Sonny and
Lowell went fishing, but they
had to purchase the fish for
supper we were told. Not
much luck on this trip, but
look out for the next trip into
the Everglades, by them.
Shuffleboard delivery: The
following discussion is relat-
ed to the right-handed player.
A left-handed player should
be able to adapt these princi-
ples to his own style of, play.
Precision shooting involves
five things: posture, mental
preparation for the shot, aim,
body movement and arm
movement. A delivery of two
steps requires that the player
stand with feet together, back
bent and eyes in line with the
cue shaft. The right hand,
which is holding the cue, will
be from 8 to 12 inches in front
of the right knee. The cue is
held with a light grip between
the thumb and the two first
fingers, with the third finger


curled behind the rubber cue
tip. Evidence of the very light
grip on the cue is seen when
the best players occasionally
drop their cue on the court
when making a shot.
One of the many things on
the plus side is you do not
have to find this in the books
when you are a club member,,
you can ask John. You can
sign up for free lessons with
John if you want to learn the
game. I have seen Ed Straub
teaching the game, the dos
and don't. Harold
Cunningham and Wally Davis
are two more that will help
you learn the game. Many
more club members will help
you if you want help.
Table tennis needs more
people to play this game at the
club. It would be nice if more
of you ladies that play table
tennis would show up. You
ladies can teach the men how
the game should be played.,,
The men would like more new


players also. More players
means more activity around
this sport and we would like
to grow in this area. We play
on Tuesday and again on
Friday at 4 p.m. year-round.
So if you have any interest in
table tennis, come Tuesday or
Friday and give us a try.
Some of the line dancers
will be headed back to the
snow and cold while we still
dance in the warmth. Point
being is, if you still have not
given us a chance, now is the
hour. You have more room to
dance, with fewer names to
learn as the summer gets upon
us. Stop by and dance with us
just once and give us a chance
to meet you. We hope that you
will like it enough to return. It
will surprise you at how many
of us are Florida residents and
stay on for the entire season.
Bev Hann needs a rest after
all the food she has made for
the club. She also does the
thankless work for entertain-


ment. You 'will see Ed Straub
around the building doing
whatever, as if he has no
home. John Bushee has made
the club his home by all
appearances. I seldom stop in
that John is not doing one
thing or another. These are
two wonderful people, that
you should meet. And to
think, that you are not part of
all this yet. How can we help
you make up your mind about
the club? Stop in and talk to
us about your questions, for
we do not bite.
Have you tried the Blue
Crab Family Restaurant yet?
One person says the Blue
Crab has the best soup in
town and another says their
fish is hard to beat. Being
hard to please, I like it all.
The Blue Crab is one of our
sponsors so you are aware of
them giving back to the com-
munity.
Clarence Wright, Harold
Cunningham, Judy Holloway,


Joan Mundry, Carol Weise,
Don Rohman and Bill
Schaeffer are club members
that have been invited to the
Reiny Tournament.
Congratulations to you all, for
this is an honor in the shuffle-
board world.
Find us in back of the
Sebring police station, 333
Pomegranate Avenue,
Sebring.

NCAA for me

means No

Chance At All

The first weekend of the
NCAA Tournament saw its'
share of blowouts, upsets
and wild finishes, which left
us all on a roller-coaster ride
as we tried to make sense of
what was happening, com-
pared to our brackets.
I had joined the free
espn.com "Tourney
Challenge," filling out just
one bracket, though I could
have filled out as many as
15.
Apparently, plenty of oth-
ers used their maximum
allowance of sheets, in that,
there are over three million
entries meaning where I
am and have been at varying
times in the standings has
been quite interesting.
At one point Friday, when
24 of the 32 first round
games had been played, I
had only gotten four games
wrong which had me in
about 302,468th place.
I shot up to 123,284th
place when San Diego beat
Connecticut, but by the end
of the first round, I lost
seven more games and had
dropped back into the mid-
one-millions.
I looked to be in decent
enough shape, because most
of the ones I got wrong, I
had losing in the second
round anyway, so those
games wouldn't cause pro-
longed damage to my brack-
et.
That was until Clemson
lost to Villanova, seeing as
how I somehow had the
Tigers going to the champi-
onship game.
So, basically, the left half
of my sheet is destroyed and

second game in a row, the
Schooni's Family Restaurant
team rallied in the late innings
to claim a victory in Lake
Placid Senior Softball league

This time, they had never
led in the game and were trail-
ing the Lake Placid Marine
team by a score of 20-16

inning.
They were still trailing by a

NCAA
Continued from 1D
games were a basic split, I
had nine of my Sweet
Sixteen still alive and I was
down to. 1,583,404th place.
I did have Duke ousted,
just not soon enough, so that
hurt a bit, and having
Pittsburgh advance to the
Elite Eight is now quite
painful.
I hope the refs are extra
kind to UCLA, again, in their
.matchup with Western
Kentucky, or just that Kevin
Love shows me some love
and gets the team to the Final
Four.
Then the NCAA can get-
some real refs in for that
game so that Stanford can
win.
Because that is my one
remaining chance to win this
- for the Cardinal to take the
whole thing.'
Among those leading in


the T.C., I see nobody having
Stanford as their eventual
champion.
Wait, dang it, I just discov-
ered one guy that's currently.
tied for 41st place, "buc-
man009," also has an appar-
ent man-crush on the Lopez
twins.
ESPN.com columnist Bill
Simmons has also jumped on
the bandwagon, including
Robin and Brook as charter
members of the "Athletes
with names that make them
sound like hot girls" club -
otherwise known as the
"Lindsay Hunter All-Stars."
So I'm glad that others are
coming around on the
Wonder Twins, but with.
Bucman already 140 points
ahead of me, with our differ-
ences in the Final Four only
being that he has Xavier
instead of UCLA (potential
advantage me) and Kansas
instead of Clemson (forgone
advantage him) my only
other hope is that North'


Carolina gets to the Final
Four, then gets. knocked off
by someone other than
Kansas.
And even then I would
likely have to have about 28
other things go just right for
me to make up the differ-
ence.
I should have gotten on the
Stephen Curry (the monster-
scoring, peach-fuzzed, one-
man-comeback, shooting
guard from upstart Davidson)
bandwagon earlier, but even
that wouldn't have gotten me
enough pointsto close the
gap.
Ah, forget it. I'll just enjoy
watching the rest of the tour-
nament.
After all, it's only a couple
more weekends.
I'll soon have six months
of the Cubs torturing me.

Kevin Carter is back with the Bucs. Waived in a salary-cap,
cost-cutting move, the defensive end resigned with Tampa
Tuesday.

Veteran DE Kevin Carter

rejoins Buccaneers


Associated Press
TAMPA Less than a
month after being released in
a cost-cutting move, defen-
sive end Kevin Carter re-
signed with the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers on Tuesday.
Carter, who would have
been due a $2 million roster
bonus, was cut just before the
start of the free agent signing
period.
The veteran of 13 NFL sea-
sons ranks, third among active


players with 101.5 career
sacks.
He played 12 years with St.
Louis, Tennessee and Miami
before spending the 2007 sea-
son with Tampa Bay.
Carter, who has never
missed a game as a pro, start-
ed 14 games and had three
sacks last season.
He has appeared in 208
consecutive games and had
five or more sacks in a season
11 times.
