New Web site

coincides

with e-mail

alert system
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING The Highlands
County Sheriff's Office
launched its new Web site
Friday in conjunction with a
new statewide sexual predator e-
mail alert system.
"I want to get as much infor-
mation in the hands of the public
.as possible," Sheriff Susan
Benton said about the updated
Web page. "So the public sees
how we are doing business."
Everything from the operating
budget and financial records to
traffic crash reports are avail-
able on the site.
This will save the county from
sending out an estimated 400
citizen-requested reports on the
quarterly budget alone, Benton
said'.
The new site will also include
real time booking updated regu-
larly with inmate information
including charges and mug
shots.
At the bottom of the site there
are links to the National Center
for Missing and Exploited
isChildren, and to
sign up for the
new statewide
sexual predator
e-mail list.
"The (Florida
Department of
Benton w Law Enforce-
: ment) is a leader
in all kinds of areas, definitely
missing children and sex offend-
ers we are 4 national model,"
Benton said.
The Sex Predator Registry
Web site has received awards for
tracking e-mail addresses and
instant message screen names of
predators, and earned an A-plus
rating by the advocacy group
Parents of Megan's Law.
The e-mail program has been
in the works for about a year by
the FDLE, and adds to the
already strong Sex Predator
Registry site.
"We added it to help the pub-
lic keep themselves and their
children safe," said FDLE pub-
lic information officer Larry
Long.
In 2005, the state added a
neighborhood search function,
allowing users to enter any
address in Florida and search the
registry for sexual predators and
offenders within a -five-mile
radius.
"We recommend doing a
search every two months," Long
said.
The new e-mail service,
called the Florida Offender Alert
System, allows Floridians to
keep track of certain predators
and sign up to be notified when

Typically, he said, a volun-

He also emphasized that
the Red Cross does not

Once a call for help comes in,
the Red Cross arrives with
coupons and vouchers for those
things a family burned out of its

clothes, not used, two changes

like The Salvation Army or

Typically, Harriman said, he

In the Red Cross's 2007 fis-
cal year (July 1 to June 30), 15
families were helped in this
way.
So far in 2008, with four
months left in the fiscal year, 26
families have already been
assisted.
But the Red Cross's success
is also a problem, Harriman
said, because it receives no
public funding despite its quasi-


putting on classes, or main-
taining an office and educa-
tional facilities has to come
from the private sector,
through donations or
fundraisers.
Fundraisers have only lim-
ited use because so often
they end up only paying for
themselves.
But donations tend to
come in cycles, Harriman
said, and at this time they are
down 43 to 44 percent. So
fundraisers, while imperfect,
become necessary.
The money shortfalls are not
just local, but national in scope,
he said.
For example, the Red Cross
used to operate 1,760 chapters
across the country, now it has
fewer than 800 because of a
lack of funding. Some states,
like North Dakota, have only
one chapter to serve.

Impact fees



will remain.



in effect
By KEVIN J. SHUTT.
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING "What ideas do you have?"
That's Commissioner C. Guy Maxcy's
question to fellow commissioners, city coun-
cils and citizens at large.
He hopes the answers fill the void of his
abandoned idea to temporarily suspend
impact fees to stimulate Highlands' econo-
my.
"I must say that I was too zealous and
eager in presenting an idea that I thought was
a simple idea," Maxcy said Friday afternoon.
Earlier in the day, the county's newly-
appointed impact fee review committee
voted 9-2 to make no changes to impact fees
as a response to Highlands' housing bubble
bust and a general slowing in economic
growth.
Realtor Chip Boring and Highlands
County Builders Association Chairman Mike
Secor voted against the motion to maintain
the status quo.
Maxcy said he should have solicited input
from opponents of an impact fee suspension
or rate adjustment (they're currently
assessed on new construction at 30 percent
of estimated infrastructure costs and 50 per-
cent for schools) before presenting his idea.
He said Friday's meeting reflected the
concerns of his constituents a 50-50 split
for and against his proposal.
"Contractors, builders, lay people said -
they felt like we could not have a suspension
of fees and overcome the needs of growth,"
Maxcy said.
Jack Richie, chairman of the impact fee
review committee and its homeowners asso-
ciation representative, backed the commit-
tee's decision, saying it acted on fact not

Celebration to celebrate end of Sebring rider set for Monday


By MATT MURPHY
inatt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING Monday marks the end of an era
for Sebring residents. But considering it was the
era of the Sebring rider, a 1.293 cent-per-kilo-
watt-hour assessment on monthly power bills,
that end is a welcome one.
To celebrate the demise of the rider, Progress
Energy Florida is hosting a party on the Circle at
5 p.m. Monday. Mayor George Hensley and


Progress Energy Community Relations Manager
Jerry Miller are scheduled to speak at the event,
which is free and open to the public. Light
refreshments will be served.
The rider was created in 1993 after Progress
Energy purchased the Sebring Utilities
Commission. Its goal was to retire more than $50
million in debt it incurred in the purchase, and
Miller said it was within thousands of dollars of
that goal.'


The sunsetting of the rider will reduce the aver-
age residential customer's bill by around $13 a
month. A select few customers who were added
onto the rider-paying list late will continue to pay
the assessment for at least a few more months.
To determine exactly how much you'll save
with the expiration of the rider, consult your ener-
gy bill. For more information about the rider or
Monday's celebration, contact Progress Energy at
1-800-700-8744.

Profiling The Candidates
As Highlands County searches for a new administrator, the News-Sun will provide
background stories on the 13 semifinalists in the running to replace Carl Cool


Not afraid to let people


know who's in charge


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun .com
SEBRING Ronald
Gabrielsen left Freeborn
County, Minn., to move on to
a bigger county.
After five years as the top
administrator for the rural
county of about 32,500 peo-
ple (according to the 2000
Census), Gabrielsen resigned
in. March 2007.
He spent six months as the
architectural coordinator for
municipal services for pri-
vate-sector BKV Group's
Chicago office before being
laid off with about two dozen
others.
Gabrielsen, 57, is one of 13
semifinalists for Highlands
County administrator.
He said the stalling econo-
my, notably the housing mar-
ket, resulted in an October
2007 layoff.
"I have many relatives in
The Villages, Naples, Fort
Myers area," Gabrielsen said,
explaining family was part of
his attraction to the Highlands
job. "Every other year, I go
down for two weeks so I
know the area."
Though his direct knowl-


edge of Highlands County
and its communities is limited
- he's only driven through
- he said it poses the same
challenges as any county
would.
With almost 10 years expe-
rience as an administrator
(about half in an administra-
tive form and half in a legisla-
tive form), Gabrielsen is also
a 20-year retired Air Force
officer, having enlisted then
receiving a scholarship
through a commissioning pro-
gram.
That background,. he said,
ensures he's ready for the
restructuring and reorganiz-
ing direction he might receive
if hired.
"I would spend three or
four years at a base and then
move to another base,"
Gabrielsen said. "I would
always implement some kind
of change. You've got to."
As part of background
checks, head hunter Colin
Baenziger said he has seen
what the local papers had
published about the candi-
dates. That said, he told the
commissioners, such reports
should be taken with a grain


Ronald Gabrielsen
of salt as politics, bias and
agendas can find their way
into otherwise should be
objective stories.
Baenziger should surely
come across the story about
Gabrielsen's vanity plates
and' maybe, the $58,000 in
income taxes he owes
Wisconsin.
"I've got to take care of
that," Gabrielsen said
Thursday, explaining there's a
lingering legal dispute on the
tax liability from his 1997
divorce. "But, the problem is
we're fighting a battle I can't
yvin."
And the tags? Well, they
call them vanity plates for a
reason.

Needham wants stationed


in Highlands at retirement


By KEVIN J.SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Col. Mark
Needham didn't plan on being
a lifer when he accepted his
appointment to West Point.
He retires in September,
closing 26 years of Army
service that culminated in his
garrison command of Fort
Knox, Ky. home of
tankers, the Army Recruiting
Command and gold bullion
depository.
With a change of command
ceremony scheduled for July
11, Needham wants his next
duty station to be Highlands
County.
He's one of 13 semifinalists
and one of two collecting
eight of 10 votes as the
strongest candidates to
replace County Administrator
Carl Cool, who retires May
30.
"I'm going to retire,"
Needham said when asked if
he had follow-on orders and
was only sending out feelers.
A career soldier accus-
tomed to institutionalized
chains of command and sub-
ordinates who unquestionably
obey lawful orders might not
seem the best fit for a county
experiencing leadership
turnover, growing pains and
internal reorganization.
Not so in his case,
Needham said.
"You'd be surprised how
un-military this command is,"
he said, explaining his staff is
mostly civilians.
He's responsible for 700-
800 of them, about a grand if
one includes the contractors.
He doesn't operate in a vac-
uum, either.
"I work with the communi-
ties outside of the gate,"
Needham said, explaining he
engages the local municipali-
ties, their mayors, the state
legislature and governor
much as a county administra-
tor would interact with other
constitutional offices. "When
you work with all of them,
there's no such thing as rank.
It's about persuasion, selling
ideas."
The military has been

of its own as it adjusts to a
changing warfare paradigm.
A newspaper reporter said
the locals refer to Needham as
"Col. BRAC" for coordinat-
ing with local and state agen-
cies to prepare for the affects
of the Base Realignment and
Closure, which will bring
thousands of new soldiers,
their families and ancillary
civilian support to the region.
Needham said his experi-
ence in these areas make him
uniquely qualified to lead
Highlands through its growth.
"If you can't communicate,
you're not an effective
leader," Needham said,
explaining the first of three
traits he said are essential.
"Leaders need to be able to
focus, understanding what

Swearing in starts

at 5:30 p.m.

By MATT MURPHY
matt.nutrphy@newssun.com
SEBRING The agenda
for Tuesday's city council
meeting doesn't look much
different than any other. But
the council itself will after the
newly-elected Dan:Andrews
joins the re-elected Margie
Rhoades and Bud Whitlock
and incumbents John Griffin
and Scott Stanley on the
board.
Andrews, Rhoades and
Whitlock will be sworn in
before the regular meeting at
5:30 p.m., as will Mayor
George Hensley and City
Clerk Kathy Haley, each of
whom retained their positions
with no opposition.
Also, current Council
President Griffin will be
replaced, and a new president
pro-tempore will also, be
appointed to replace Jeff
Carlson, who left the board to
seek a seat with the Highlands
County Board of County
Commissioners.
For his part, Andrews said
he is looking forward to get-


ting started.
"I'm look-
ing forward to
serving the
community,"
he said. "I'm
hoping to
maintain some Andrews
stability with
council As a whole, I'm very
proud of what council has
done in my past 20 years of
observing, and I'm looking
forward to -maintaining that
and continuing the success of
the city."

Over the next year, the
council will have some very
big decisions to make, not the
least of which is the budget.
With uncertainty coming out
of Tallahassee, and proposals
that could severely limit the
city's ability to collect prop-
erty tax money, the budget
process will be a contentious
one.
Harder Hall also remains an
issue of importance, as the
city continues to market the
historic star-crossed hotel.
Although there are currently
no formal .offers on the table,
several prospective buyers
remain interested.
Discussions will also con-


tinue on a p~ro-
posed rezon-
ing of down-
S town; and the
Streetscape

ect, which
Rhoades includes the
historic

and the fairgrounds) as long
as the buildings fit into the
surrounding neighborhood
and are approved by the city's

and the city council. Second

Boys & Girls Club celebrates national week


Sunday, March 30, 2008 3A

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Today begins
the national celebration of
Boys & Girls Club Week. The
Highlands County organiza-
tion is joining by asking local
churches to take up a donation
for the organization, which
currently has operations in
Avon Park and Sebring, as
well as taking a donation of
books from the Avon Park
Friends of the Library organi-
zation.
The organization has been
in operation in Highlands
County for better than a
decade.
"Our primary mission is to
inspire and enable all young
people especially those
from less advantaged circum-
,stances,". Boys and Girls Club
of Highlands County
Executive Director Wally
Randall said.
He explained the goal is to
help youngsters realize their
full potential as citizens -
which is one of the reasons
disadvantaged children are
targeted by the program.
"Our kids are in contact
daily with adult and youth
staff who help them learn to
make the right choices," he
said.
Participants in the program
recieve help with such things
as homework and tutoring as
well as participating in sports
and other fun activities.
Rather than relying on gov-
ernment subsidies, the group
continues to hold a wide array
of events deisgned to support
the organization while giving
people something for their
money. Over the past several
months they have staged a
concert, poker tournaments,
garage sales, car washes and
even a hot air balloon festival
at the Sebring International
Raceway. Plans are underway
for our second annual hot air

No help for those
who are trying
Editor:
Living in Florida, or for
that matter the United States
of America, we have all read
any number of stories in the
- news concerning Child
Support, Department of
Labor Issues, Healthcare for
the Elderly, etc. Something
that the more fortunate of us
may never have to do, is turn
to one of these agencies for
help. In life, we do our best
to plan ahead and make sure
we are covered, but we all
know that doesn't always
work out. When things fall
through, and there's no fami-
ly or close loved ones to
save you, there aren't very.
many options. Unfortunately,
if you were raised the way I
was, you have this under-
standing that the government
cares, is there to help you
and assist you with fixing
your life, because when you
succeed, we all succeed.
Which brings me to my
issue. I went to work to pick
up my paycheck on my day
off and was informed I didn't
have one. I was informed
that upon rehiring me several
months ago, my employer
had been accidentally over-
paying me. I wasn't getting

33870: the server minimum wage, a
3 3870 difference of about $3.50 an
hour. After doing the math,

e same this put me at owing them
column $520 or so. I was informed
that the money could be

ot nec- over time, but that would
n. take too long, so instead they

2002? Now there's about 40
different separate entities to
do what one office was able
to do. Picture needing to go
shopping, and you have to
buy your toothpaste, separate
from your toothbrush and
your dental floss, and all at
different locations. Doesn't
seem to make much sense
does it? I've called every
number I can find and the
three listed to handle the

disconnect you after a
lengthy time on hold. Calling
the offices over them, they

offices and can simply refer
you to Washington for assis-

Justice coming
soon for Meus
Editor:
Jean Claude Meus, the
black Haitian-born truck
driver that was wrongfully
convicted and sent to prison
for an accident, may finally
have the justice he deserves.
Depositions taken since the
last hearing held in January
of this year show the truth
and an evidentiary hearing


(was) scheduled for March
25.
It has been a long, hard
fought battle for those close
to him as well as the allies'
found in the family of the
victims in the accident.
Hopefully the battle for truth
and justice is coming to an
end. Knowing Jean Claude
and knowing his honesty and
his faith in the justice system
throughout this ordeal has
made this even harder
because we have known all
along that an innocent man
was behind bars.
Daily I still receive ques-
tions on how the case is
going and on Jean Claude's
well-being due to my van,
which over the years has
become a moving billboard
attesting to Jean Claude's
innocence. I am already
working on the new lettering
that says "Free at last, thank
God he is free at last." I do
hope that I am able to put it
on very soon.
One thing I am sure of is
the support that Jean Claude
has had from this community
over the past few years. Jean
Claude also knows it through
letters and being told about it
when we have visited or spo-
ken on the phone. His words
"itbrings water to my eyes."
Please feel free to call me
at 414-0903 with any ques-
tions and I thank you from
the bottom of my heart for
caring about this man that I
pray I can soon-call my
brother-in-law.

The lucky fate of a lost dog who has found a new home


When I was 4, my dog Pal
was lost, my dad relying on
his whistle rather than a
leash; a little brown and
white Fox Terrier wandering
the narrow, bleak streets of
the West Bronx, losing refer-
ence, each block looking like
the last one. I often won-
dered about Pal's fate, what
happened to my small friend
with little chance for sur- '
vival in an indifferent world.
To me there is nothing so
heart rending as the sight of
a lost dog, his gait and hesi-
tant gaze signaling his
despair and panic, nothing
familiar, no scent, no land-
mark to help him find the
way home.
On an early morning walk
recently, I saw a dog stand-
ing half way into a line of
slow moving traffic, looking
at each car as it slowed to
pass, not yet realizing he had
become a lost dog. Surely
there was some mistake,


some confusion and he
would realize I was not still
next to him in the car and he
would return. His trust was
still in control, perhaps the
next car or the one after
that.
A passerby told me that
dogs were frequently
dropped in our neighbor-
hood, supposedly in some
forlorn hope that their
chances for adoption would
be better here than in a pen
at the Animal Control.
Assuaged their sense of
guilt, a sham of responsibili-
ty. I gave some thought to
taking him with me but he
was a large dog and I was
unsure as to how he would
react. I went back to the
place later in the day but he
was gone.
Eventually they become
wanderers reconciled to
being lost, their panic
replaced by a wariness and
the necessity of finding their

next meal. My dog Pepper
was probably one of those,
except for her innate friend-
liness which made the next
passerby a good prospect for
a friendly word and a possi-
bly a pet. Pepper, 75 pounds
of American bulldog, boxer
and who knows what else. A
fearsome visage but contra-
dicted by her large soft
brown eyes which would
melt an iceberg.
She came to our our atten-
tion by following my wife
when she walked our dog, as
if applying for adoption. At
one point when she thought
she had achieved acceptance
she put on a display, a joy-
ous outburst running ahead,
up each driveway and down
again to join her on her
walk, full of bounce and
frolic.


At first we saw no room in
our world for this big,
friendly animal and We
decided to take her to the
Humane Society in the hopes
that she would be adopted
out. When I saw her in the
back seat of my wife's car,
overjoyed at the prospect of
an automobile ride, my heart
broke. In my view, she was
not aware that she was prob-
ably on her way to be, what
is that ugly word, eutha-
nized, a detestable, cowardly
term for killing, and she
radiated happiness.
As it turned out the
Humane Society would not
accept her (full up) and she
'wound up at the Animal
Control, a place with a 10-
day wait before execution.
My wife had to go out of
town and after two days I
could no longer cope with
my guilt and went to bail her
out. Meanwhile my wife
agonized with her decision


and had decided to get her
out when she returned to
town.
I found her in a small cage
at the county's Animal
Control site and brought her
home. Unable to cope with
her after a day I was almost
ready to return her to her
fate but my wife intervened
and we adopted her out, only
to have her returned to us
within a week.
Finally succumbing to the
irresistible force of those big
brown eyes we decided she
was home. Now, after sever-
al years with us she still
presses for pets, as if in need
of constant reassurance that
she is not longer a lost dog.

From the pulpit

I attend services at Sebring
Parkway Church of Christ.
Every Sunday, I gather with fel-
low Christians to sing songs of
praise, pray together, and
observe Lord's Supper. I
also hear a sermon preached by
our preacher or another man
when he's not here.
The sermons cover topics
such as "Seeing the glory of
God" or, in the case of this past
Sunday, the scene at Golgotha
where Christ was crucified. The
sermons often cause me to con-
sider my walk in my faith and
how I can do it better.
Occasionally, I laugh at some
joke made.
Rarely do I get upset at
something said from the pulpit.,
In fact, some people might con-
sider our services rather sedate.
Unless James is speaking for
some reason. When my teenag-
er gets up to speak I don't know
if you will find his speech mak-
ing things less sedate, but I
promise you won't be bored.
Over the past few weeks
we've heard sermons preached
by two men Rev. Jeremiah
Wright Jr., the former pastor of
Senator Obama's church, and
Pastor James David Manning,
who preaches at a church in
Harlem.
I've listened to the things
they said. In fact, I've heard
more from Wright than I ever
want to. People like Sean
Hannity took to playing his
incendiary comments about the
United States so much I had to
switch off his show. I can take
only so much garbage being
thrown at me.
In case you managed to avoid
all this, let me give you a very
quick and sanitized version.
Rev. Wright has peppered his
sermons with statements such
as the U.S. government created
AIDS to kill'the black comimu-i-
nity and that 9/11 was payback
for our country's sins.
Senator Obama claims he
was a member of the congrega-
tion for 20 years and didn't
hear the worst of these state-
ments. He publically repudiated
the statements while saying he
couldn't separate himself from
his spiritual leader.
Pastor Manning took a differ-
ent tack. He doesn't support
Obama. In fact, he has used his
sermons to call the senator
names like "trash" and attacked
the man's parents in words I'd
rather not repeat here.
I guess you can't call' the
services at these churches
sedate. And probably not bor-
ing, either.
Free speech is alive and well.
And I am glad of it. My career
depends on it.
And yes, this stuff is bad but
in an election cycle, we hear
some pretty nasty things. Had
Wright and Manning been on a
campaign staff and said things
like this, their statements might
have raised eyebrows but a lot
of people would call it political
hard ball.
But these things were said
during worship services. Said
by men who are supposed to be
nourishing the people sitting in
the pews. Not tossing around
political hand grenades left,
right, and loudly. And in this
time of the Internet, such things
can be sent worldwide with a
few mouse clicks.
I am not a preacher. But I am
one who has heard a lot of ser-
mons over the years. i think
I've attended enough services
to speak on this. If the preacher
of a church I was a member of
chose to use his sermon to
preach some of the things I've
heard from these two ministers,
I'd be upset and questioning the
man's priorities.

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The extreme
low level of Lake Jackson
presents a great- opportunity
to remove a large amount of
debris from the area that is
normally covered with water.
As the water has been low for
some time, there is also an
accumulation of new trash
that will become submerged
or floating debris when the
lake rises.
The Highlands County
Lakes Association, in cooper-
ation with Keep Highlands
County Beautiful and
Highlands County Soil and
Water Conservation District,
are sponsoring a lake clean-
up party at 9 a.m. Wednesday.


The plan is to divide the
entire shoreline into sections
to be patrolled by an assigned
group. Since Lake Jackson
shoreline is a very large area,
we need as many volunteers
as possible to do an effective
job. The volunteers should
plan to meet at Veteran's
Beach for assignment to spe-
cific area to be patrolled.
Trash bags and pickers will be
supplied, but volunteers
should try to bring a pair of"
gloves.
The HCLA will have their
'grill on site and will cook hot
dogs and hamburgers for
lunch after the work, and will
provide soft drinks and water.
The food and drinks will be


alwlwmt


paid for by a grant from the
Highlands County Tourist Tax
fund designated for lake relat-
ed spending
Since this is a big job that
requires a lot of volunteers,
the clean-up has been sched-
uled during spring break so
many of the youth groups in
the county can also partici-
pate. But any group or indi-
viduals who want to see a
cleaner Lake Jackson is wel-
come to participate.
Since an accurate count is
needed to purchase the food
and arrange the supplies, any
person or group that wants to
participate must sign up
before Monday by calling the
HCSWCD at 402-6545.

"What will it cost?"
Needham said. "What is the
return on investment?"
The transition from mili-
tary life to civilian isn't
always seamless, especially
after 26 years on active duty
prefaced by four years in a
military academy.

Gabrielsen's name with
Freeborn returns a link to
newsoftheweird.com about the
administrator's license plates
that bore "FOADI" and
"HMFICFC."
He was able to drive with
those plates on his Mazda
Miata and Dodge Dakota,
respectively, for a time until
residents, reportedly political
opponents, complained to the
state.
Asked to explain, he told
the Albert Lea (Minn.)


County commissioners will
have to decide whether,
assuming Needham is quali-
fied enough to make the final
cut of five finalists, he'll
make his adjustments while
guiding the county through,

lots of people around me."

stand for "Freedom Offers
Americans Democracy (No. 1

Minnesota Farmers Increase

The Tribune reported crit-
ics believed the plates depict-

stood translations -
"(Expletive deleted) Off and
Die" and "Head Mother

The state recalled his plates
and allowed him to reapply
for something potentially less
offensive.

the paper, Gabrielsen said his
proudest achievement with
Freeborn was the construction
of a building that included
county administration, the jail
and courts.
"We have, probably, the
most state-of-the-art govern-
ment center in rural
Minnesota," he told the
Tribune, explaining it was
completed on time and under-
budget. To the News-Sun, he
said, "Consequently, the
county was better off five and
half years later than when I
got there."

misinformation.
"It was all a numbers
game," Richie said Friday
afternoon. '"There was so
much misinformation out
there, it was difficult to deal
n ith that."
He said Office of
Management and Budget
Director Bernis Gainer and
representatives of the
Building Department provid-
ed requested data that dis-
proved claims that builders
were holding off on permits,
or cancelingg applications
being processed.
"There is no run on the
building department," Richie
said.'
What the review committee
will do Tuesday is recom-
mend the board not in any
way adjust or suspend impact
fees.
Then, the 11-person com-
mittee will continue to review
the fees to ensure they're
being properly collected,


signing up for the e-mail list
because e-mails only notify
users if a predator moves into
the area, not if there is already
one living nearby.
Benton said the site has a
great deal of flexibility,
allowing users to input many
addresse*or plaees-,they know


spent and at rates appropriate
to keep up with growth.
"School (impact fees) is
one of our biggest problems,"
Richie said. "It has the most
impact'fee on it."
Though it failed before the
voters several years ago,
Richie said the committee
will study the half-cent
school tax as a means to
replace the corresponding
impact fee,
"I think there'll be a differ-
ent attitude toward it," he
said.
Maxcy said he'll refocus on
cutting the budget by reduc-
ing costs and expenses.
"Exactly what? I don't
know," he said. "But, as of
Tuesday's board meeting I
will recommend not consider-
ing any further impact fee
suspension."
Maxcy took pause during
the interview to apologize to
his fellow commissioners,
explaining he felt bad they
were caught in the crossfire
by those who thought his idea
was the board's.


their children hang out.
"You can put your home,
school, bus stop locations, the
mall places your children
will be and be notified
when an offender moves into
the area" Benton said.
The new e-mail notification
isn't limited to Nex predaitori-
"This is a 4greai tool,
because they can now get
information on (sex) offend-
ers as well," Long said.
Launching the new look for
the HCSO Web site the same
day as the new statewide e-
mail system was no coinci-
dence.
"We enthusiastically part-
nered with FDLE on release
of the Sexual
Offender/Predator e-mail
alert service and it can be eas-
ily accessed right from our
front page," Benton said in a
press release.
Benton is one of two sher-
iffs in the area to feature a
link to the sex offender site
from their own Web site,
Long said.
"It is critical we have local
partners," Long said. "We are
thankful for the support
Sheriff Benton has given."

quickly added, the county's
local service center is run-
ning in the black, but barely.
The only reason it man-
ages, he explained, is
because of the volunteers and
the hundreds of hours they
spend responding to emer-
gencies, conducting classes,
answering questions.
The outlook for fiscal 2009
is more serious still.
Harriman anticipates a $7,000
shortfall compare that,
however, to the Orlando chap-
ter, which is expected to carry
a $500,000 deficit in 2009.
He is aware that the Red
Cross has been linked with
bad management in the past.
That history, he said, is the
main reason he has worked so
hard to bring the local Red
Cross center not only back to
life, but to do so transparent-
ly, developing a volunteer
base while rebuilding, broken
community agency relation-
ships and creating mutual aid
partnerships.
Harriman hopes the com-
munity responds by coming to
the aid of the local center.


One way to have a wonder-
ful time and help is to buy
tickets to the Red and White
Ball on Saturday, April 5th.
Whole tables are still avail-
able.

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop


Life source

Easter and Christmas are
celebrated individually; yet,
are tied together. For one
without the other isn't possi-
ble. And both have trees as
symbols.
One is decorated with
bright lights, meaningful
ornaments, ribbons and gar-
land; while the other is bleak
and without decoration.
However, if one looks at
the purple robe of royalty
that eventually draped that
second tree in victory the
perception is altered for eter-
nity.
But, both trees also have
something magnificent in
common. Life'.
One exemplifies life as it
helps us celebrate God's
incarnation in the form of a
tiny infant.
The other is a cruel form
of punishment redeemed
by the Life given, resurrect-
ed and offered to all who
believe.
Each began with roots
firmly entrenched in the life-
giving soil. Once cut down,
the Christmas tree will live
for about a month. In fact,
purs did so well that I won-
dered if it was growing roots
because it stayed fresh for so
long.
But eventually, the lovely
scent of the tree was being
replaced by an odiferous
wafting of a decaying trunk
and dead needles thai had
fallen into the water.
In fact, after we discarded
the tree, I noticed quite a
few others on the side of the
road waiting for pick-up so
they could be disposed of.
Not one had any roots and
the once green branches so
beautifully adorned were
now brown and brittle.
Cut off from their life
source, the trees could only
last briefly.
Spiritually speaking, we
need to be connected to a
life source as well. That life
source is God.
He gives us physical life
as well as spiritual life.
However, from our concep-
tion we have inherited the
sin nature passed onto us
front mankirid's first parents
- Adam and Eve. This sin
nature displays itself in vari-
ous ways. But, its root is in
rebellion against God as well
as in selfishness and pride.
Unlike the cut down
Christmas tree that will not
have life flow through it
again, we can reconnect with
our life source. Through
Jesus' death and resurrec-
tion, he provided that way
back. When we come to him
believing and repentant, for-
giveness is given. We are
born again spiritually into
his eternal family.
In John 15: 5, NIV, we
read about Jesus our life
source.
"I am the vine; you are the
branches. If a man remains
in me and I in him, he will
bear much fruit; apart from
me you can do nothing."
We can't earn our salva-
tion and we can't live a truly
fulfilling life without the
Lord of life.
Stay connected to your life
source and live abundantly.
Selah

Fourez has been chosen to

*its own category. Three quilt-


ing authorities will. judge this
elite group prior to the open-
ing of the show. Regardless of
how the quilt places in the
final judging, all 394 quilts
will be displayed at the annu-
al quilt show. The show
brings in more than 35,000
quilters, collectors, and ven-.
dors to Paducah each spring.
This is the third year in a
row that Fourez has had a
quilt accepted into the show.
She has spent the winter sea-
son teaching quilt classes at
Heart to Heart in Avon Park

her hometown in Illinois in
time to attend the Paducah

Drop a line to help Monofilament Recycling and Recovery Program


Manatees, turtles, dolphins, birds
and fish sightings are something
most folks enjoy while recreating
near the water.
But did you know that a large
percentage of animal rescues are the
result of entanglement in monofila-
ment line? Every five manatee res-
cues is a result of entanglement in
fishing line. In a five-year period,
163 turtles, 35 dolphins and count-
less birds and fish were found
entangled in monofilament line.
Most monofilament is non-
biodegradable and lasts about 600
years. Because it is difficult to see
by most wildlife, they may swim or
fly into it and get tangled up. Other
animals may accidentally eat it. The
line does not digest and.will eventu-
ally kill the animal that ingests it.
It is unfortunate that so many ani-
mals suffer and die each year as a
result of mankind's disregard for
their environment. There is some-
thing that you can do to help. The
Highlands Soil and Water
Conservation District sponsors a
Monofilament Recycling and
Recovery Program (MRRP). You


can get involved in saving animals
from entanglement in many ways.
The simplest way is simply to
deposit your used fishing line in the
MRRP bins located in many areas
of Highlands County. The MRRP
program takes used fishing line and
sends it to the Berkley Conservation
Institute in Iowa. Berkley melts the
line down into raw plastic pellets
that can be made into other plastic
products including tackle boxes,
spools for line, fish habitats and
toys. So not only does the program
save wildlife, it recycles this poten-
tially dangerous line into useful
items.
The MRRP Program was initially,
funded by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission.
They provided a one-year grant to
get the program started. The pro-
gram is still going strong, but addi-
tional funding to expand and keep it
going is needed. So far, over 1,000
pounds of monofilament line has
been recovered from outdoor recy-
cling bins, dive cleanup, shoreline
cleanup and collected at tackle
shops.


The Highlands
'> Soil and Water
Conservation
District is proud
to be part of this
worthy program,
but we need your
help. If you have
some time and
News want to help pro-
From The tect these marine
~Watershed animals, we have
Watershed a job for you!
Corine Burgess. Volunteers are
needed to collect
the monofilament line from the nine
locations in Lake Placid, five bins
in Avon Park, eight Sebring loca-
tions and six recycling bins in the
Istokpoga area. So if you live in
any of these areas and can spare a
couple of hours a week, you can be
part of the solution. If you're inter-
ested and want to find out more,
please call us at (863) 402-6545.
Everyone can help by following a
few simple steps. Don't leave your
line behind when you do go fishing.
Store it safely and securely until it
can be placed in a recycling recep-


tacle. Never leave fishing line unat-
tended. Cast your line with care;
avoid trees, utility lines, bridges,
reefs, wildlife and other people.
If your line does get snagged or
breaks, make every effort to safely
retrieve it. Collect discarded line,
debris and other abandoned fishing
gear when encountered. Do not feed
wildlife as it encourages animals to
approach fishing boats and anglers.
If you must throw your fishing line
in the trash instead of a monofila-
ment recycling bin, cut it into short
lengths (6-12 inches), because once
it arrives at the landfill it could be
scavenged by animals trying to use
it to build nests or ingest it.
Fishing line is a high-density
plastic and requires a special recy-
cling process. It cannot go into
most regular recycling bins. If you
can't get it to one of our bins, spool
the line at home and take it to a-
tackle shop that recycles it or you
can send it directly to'Berkley (call
1-.800-BERKLEY).
If you do happen to see an entan-
gled animal you can report it to 1-
888-404-FWCC (3922).

Book at LP Library addresses teens' concerns about stuttering


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Stuttering is a frus-
trating and embarrassing problem for
millions of people, but it can be especial-
ly tough on teenagers. Help is available
at the Lake Placid Memorial Library in
the form of a new book.
NBA basketball star Kenyon Martin,


news anchor John Stossel, and actors
James Earl Jones and Nicholas Brendon
are just a few of the many celebrities
who struggle with stuttering. A list of
famous people who stutter can be found
- at www.stutteringhelp.org.
"More than 3 million Americans stut-
ter, yet stuttering remains misunderstood


by most people," said. Jane Fraser, presi-
dent of the Stuttering Foundation.
"Myths such as believing people who
stutter are less intelligent or suffer from
psychological problems still persist
despite research refuting these erroneous
beliefs."

CRISIS
Continued from 1B
cue from long-term debt
instruments like the 10-year
Treasury bond. Inflation
pushes up the yield on longer-
term bonds, and, thus, fixed
mortgage rates have either
risen or not fallen despite
aggressive attempts by the
Fed to cut interest rates and
spark the economy.

Muscular
Fed Action
Because lowering short-
term interest rates has done
little to calm financial mar-
kets, the Fed has taken bold
steps to ensure that, .at mini-
mum, banks continue lending.
It has created several new
lending facilities, offering at
least $500 billion in short-
term loans so that banks can
keep lending. And it's offered


these 'loans to investment
banks and securities dealers,
for periods of 90 days instead
of the conventional 30 days.
The Fed even assumed liabili-
ties up to $30 billion in help-
ing broker the March 16 sale
of investment bank Bear
Stearns to JP Morgan Chase
for a fire-sale price of just $2
a share. It prevented the bank-
ruptcy of a Wall Street titan,
which would have potentially
sucked down .other invest-
ment banks.
Only time will tell whether
all the Fed's efforts will work.
Democrats in Congress
meantime are offering legisla-
tion that would involve some
government intervention to
take in problem loans, modify
them and offer insurance to
lenders in the event that there
is still a default by borrowers
after loan modification.
Some proposals even


involve the creation of a
mechanism by which the gov-
ernment auctions off these
modifying loans, not unlike
how the Resolution Trust
Corp. was created to auction
off real estate following the
savings & loan crisis of the
late 1980s.
"I think from here on in, the
situation is one which really
required the federal govern-
ment to step up and try to
resolve some of the problems
of the mortgage market," said
Lyle Gramley, a former Fed
governor with more than 50
years in financial markets.
This much is certain: the
housing crisis didn't come
about overnight, and it is
unlikely to be solved in short
order either. It's likely to
mean economic chop well
into next'year before the U.S.
economy enjoys fair winds
again.


Attend the Church of Your Choice!


L 1-8, "Now on the
Sfiof the week, very
Sea the morning, they,
an in other women
S wi emtn, came to the
tomb bringing the spices
which they had prepared.
But the)' fond the stone
rolled away from the tomb.
Then they went in and did not find the body
of the Lord Jesus. And it happened, as they
were greatly perplexed about this, that
behold, two men stood by them in shining
garments. Then, as they were afraid and
bowed their faces to do the earth, they said
to them, why do you seek the living among
the dead? He is not here, but is Risen!
Remember how He spoke to you when He
was still in Galilee, saying, the Son of Man
must be delivered into {the hands of sinful
men, and be cur/ ie 'and the third day
rise again. And' remembered His
words." The resuri' of Jesus Christ is
the most import .int in all human
history. Only Jes -ist rose from the
dead. Jesus w'as ious over death..
Remember today celebratee a Risen
Saviour. Whatever ay be facing today
that does not with/ peace, just
remember these major events,
Calvary's Cross c Empty Tomb. He
did it just for and me. Happy
Resurrection Day! Patricia Valentine

HISTORY LESSON

35 YEARS AGO
March 27, 1973: The Blue Streak baseball team capped off a two-win week with a 2-0 victory over
Clewiston, bringing the season record to an impressive 10-4. After topping Okeechobee, 4-0, earlier in
the week, Sebring rode another shutout in the Friday win. Charlie Lanier was on the mound against
Clewiston and scattered six hits while striking out 13.The Streaks got all their runs, and the only ones
they'd need, in the first inning. CharlieTate singled to lead off the game. While on first, a pickoff attempt
got away, sending Tate all the way to third. But when the throw to nail him there got away, in he came
to score. BuddyYarbrough then walked before stealing second and third and then coming in when Lanier's
hard smash to third could not be handled.

the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing

I mean, how outdated is

NFL players are faceless
enough, hidden underneath
their helmets, behind their

see the hair flopping behind
them and being able to say,

'Kyle Turley.'
Those thinking that the

It is now Saturday morning

bad news last night after
arriving home from covering
the Lake Placid baseball

I saw that Stanford lost to
Texas to knock any hope I

After winning each' of the
first four Sweet Sixteen
games Thursday night, I lost
all four of the games Friday
night to knock me into

I don't feel quite so bad,
however, as the Cardinal not

by the Longhorns, losing by

"We are proud to host this
history-making weekend and
welcome lawn mower racers
from across the country", said
Sid Whiteside, NASGRASS
President and FLA Treasurer.
"The STA-BIL Series has
become so popular that
Florida can now support three
national races in one week-
end. Plus, with the rising
price of gas, this makes the
trip a good value for our snow
bird racers from up North."
A feature of the weekend
will be the first-ever running
of the Junior Prepared Class,
a new class on the National
level for racers ages 10-15.
Adding the Junior Prepared

Lady Streaks wrap up regular season


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.coin
The Lady Blue Streaks
wrapped up their regular sea-
son with a 7-0 win in a rain-
delayed make up match at
Sarasota Booker.
Sheela Joshi and Leeza
Freeland, at numbers 2 and 5
singles, respectively, had the
closes matches of the day
with Joshi dropping her first
set 2-6 before rallying to go
6-0 and 10-6 for the win.
Freeland didn't drop a set.


DRAGONS
Continued from n1D
Panther batter reached third
before shortstop Sosa could
track it down and get it in.
A fly ball to the deepest
part of the park was tracked
down nicely by Wilson, but it
was far too deep for any play
at the plate as the winning run
came across.
Despite some valiant
efforts and the big innings,
head coach Dan Coomes saw
a couple underlying reasons
for the teams' demise this
night.
One of which, oddly, was
the quality of the field.
"With some of these fields
we play at on the road, when


but had to work a hit in taking
the 7-5, 6-6 (7-3) win over
Karoline Lira.
The T'est of the matches
were pretty convincing wins
for Sebring with Mary
Midence going 6-0, 6-0 at
number 1 singles, Kelsie
Johnson winning 6-4. 6-1 at
number three and JJ Jimenez
serving up a 6-0. 6-0 shutout
in number four.
Midence and Johnson then
teamed up to win 8-3 as the
top doubles team, while


teams come to Highlands
County and see our fields,
you can see their players light
up and they're really ready to
play." he said. "We have to
come out like that and be
ready to play. We didn't come
to play tonight, and that's the
first time in the last few
weeks we didn't.
"You could tell from out.
dugout, we had some guys not
happy that they weren't start-
ing and we weren't together
as a team tonight," Coomes
continued. "And both ways,
it's contagious. If you're
pumped up, oh boy, the rest of
the team is up. But if you're
not, if you're down, the rest
of the team is down, and
that's the way it is."


Jimenez and Alyssa
Kariofyllis proving a dynamic
duo in winning second dou-
bles 8-0.
The regular season now
complete, the Streaks went
undefeated in district play
while compiling an 11-1 over-
all record.
The team will have' some
. time to tune up over their
spring break this week before
heading to Sarasota for the
District Tournament Tuesday
and Wednesday, April 8 and 9.


At 2-4 in district play, the
Dragons still have a shot at
the second spot, but with their
district schedule complete,
their fate is now out of their
hands.
"This game may have cost
us dearly. If we had won,
we're definitely in the two or
three slot," Coomes said.
"Now if Frostproof beats
Mulberry, they move into the
second spot, and if Mulberry
wins we're all tied and it
.comes down to all sorts of tie-
breakers."
But the team won't be twid-
dling their thumbs awaiting
the outcome, as they will be
busy hosting the four-day
Green Dragon tournament
beginning Monday.

DEVILS
Continued from 1D
Jackson. "He is also making
plays for us at first as well.
We are coming along in the
district ok, and we are confi-
dent as a team right now.
Winning does that for you. In
our last three games we came
back and scored on two outs,
that's huge.
"It really shows we


are building our confidence,
and Duke was there for us on
offense and defense against
Frostproof," Jackson contin-
ued. "A week ago, we were in
the outhouse, now it looks
like we are getting a little
closer to the penthouse
again."
Along with Duke's clutch
hit, Avon Park's second base-
man Chad Marley made an
exceptional leaping catch in


the top of the seventh as the
Red Devils put DeSoto away
1-2-3,
"Marley's play was awe-
some, and it seems that we
have the batting, defense, and
pitching all working right
now," commented Jackson.
The 10-7 Devils will go on
to play Clewiston over Spring
Break at Lake Placid in the
Green Dragon. Tournament
Monday at 4 p.m.
