Exactly 477 pinwheels cover the Highlands County Courthouse lawn T~uesday in honor of Child Abuse Aw~areness
month in Sebring. Each pinwheel represented two local child abuse cases.




The smallest victims


Ceremony marks Child Abuse Awareness Month


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
ker'in2.shuttf@new IIssonI.com
SEBRING Last year there were ~
enough child. .lbuse and neglect cases
to fill the cotitay's largest elementary
school.
Those cases were represented dur-
ing a Blue Ribbon ceremony Tuesday
on the courthouse lawn with 477
blue-and-silvei~ pinwheels one for
every two cases.
About 50 people attended the event,
which 10th Circuit Chief Judge-David
La'ngford said outnumbered the com-
bined attendance of similar events at
Hardee and Polk counties.
"Hopefully, next year there won't
be as many pinwheels," Langford
said.
According. to national statistics
averaged, three children die daily
from aliuse or neglect.
As a judge presiding over these
types of cases, it's often Langford
who must decide whether to break up
a family.
"The decisions are tough some-
times," Langford sjid, explaining it's
the investigators, case works and vol-
urnteers from the Children's Advocacy
Center, Highlands County Sheriff's .
Office, Florida Dtpartment of
Children and Families and other agen-
cies, who help him make them.
"I've always had the information


that I needed," he said.
The ribbon cuttirig for Child Abuse
Awareness month included~ reminders
that prevention is a community effort,
and victims became so through no
fault of their own.
"Prevention remains the best


defense for our children," said Jeffrey
Roth, director, Children's Advocacy
Center.

Alane Ferguson touring

LAKE ~PLACID Zombies, a shark
attack and a close encounter with a bear-
Throw' in a dog scared of his own
shadow and you have a riveting presenta-
tion Tuesday at Lake Placid High School
by award-winning author Alane
Ferguson.
Ferguson is a mystery writer, with
more than 30 books published for the
young adult demographic.


For middle school-age students she
has a national park mystery series, and
for the not-so-squeamish high school stu-
dent she writes CSI-type forensic mys-
teries.
"It's just interesting; I don't know how
to explain it. I'm just into that stuff,"
explained Lake Placid High School jun-
ior Ashley INeeley, a fan of the CSI
shows on CBS. "I never read books at
home, but I love this book."
The school board purchased one of
Ferguson's novels for the juniors at the
school, and for the past few months in
English and chemistry classes, the stu-
dents have been delving into the forensic


mystery genre.
"Chemistry helped them take the ter-
minology and technologies and put it in
their own creative writing," LPHS
English teacher Mika Balk said.
Ferguson does a lot of research for her
writing, Neeley said.
Some of the CSI shows give an esti-
mated time of death, and investigators
sometimes catch the killer that way,
Ferguson said.
"But that's not real," she said.
Ferguson explained when dead, bodies
act differently and there: is no way to pin-

commissioners voted unani-
mously Tuesday to include
ethanol plants among the per-
mitted uses of industrial zon-
ing.
The decision .sets certain
limitations but paves the way
for a proposed sweet sorghum
bio-fuel plant just north of
Archbold Biological Station
in Lake Placid.
"We want to be a good
neighbor," U.S. EnviroFuels
president Dr. Bradley Krohn
said, committing to locate in
the industrial-zoned area near
Better Roads' asphalt plant
instead of a previous location
south of Archbold.

i llHlllaor Siwain,a drco

research facility was being
boxed in by incompatible
industry with the asphalt
plant to the north and the pro-
posed ethanol plant to the
south.
SBut, with EnviroFuels con-
sideration of another location
and additional commitment to
not use Old State Road 8, she
seemed more at ease with
what could be the first
sorghum-to-ethanol plant.
Cotmlty Planning Director
Jim Polatty brought Michael
J. Gaylor of Gaylor
Engineering to educate the
board about a proces-s for
which there's scarce reliable
information available.
Gaylor's been in bio-fuels
since 1980 and he recalled
how it was not economically
feasible with fluctating oil
prices.
"We were in it for all the
wrong reasons but we made it
work," Gaylor said, recalling
oil at $9 per barrel in 1983
and noting it was $108 on
Tuesday. "Now, (ethanol) is
an industry."
He's been waiting 20 years
to see a sorghum plant in
operation. Polatty said
Gaylor came to Sebring from
Lutz for free aild wasn't asso-
ciated with the county or U.S.

What: Relay for Life
When: Noon Saturday

Where: Avoni Park

Who: Anyone
Why: Fundraiser for

ticipant involved activities
like Smarter than a Fifth

Midnight Relay Fear Factor.
"It's just a great big party,
clean with no alcohol and no
cigarettes, and while we're at
it, we're raising money for
the American Cancer
Society," Hinskey said.
Hinskey reminded team
captains Monday night during
a walk through at the Avon
Park High School football
field that they should mental-
ly switch places with the sur-
diosa ettey ktak et eir lap

"They- need to~think what
it's like to walk around that
track as a cancer survivor.
During -the Luminaria
Ceremony, as the music is
~playing and the names are
being called, I told them to
allow themselves to cry.
Many of them told me they
haven't been to a lumid'aria
where they haven't cried yet.
That's when it all makes
sense.
"We are doing this for our
children, our grandchildren
and our great-grandchildren ,
so they hopefully won't know
what the word cancer is. We
are doing it for the survivors
who are walking their laps
because they have made such
strides that allow them. to
walk now.
"Yes, we are going to, have
a good time, but we all need
to remember why we are
doing this," she said.
Hinskey said there is no
specific charge for the lumi-
narias; they are bought by
donation.
"Everything is, always
appreciated."

Governments and water
management districts
throu hout the state have
declared April Water
Conservation Month. While
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District staff
advocates water conservation
year-round, an extra effort is
being made to promote con-
servation throughout April
because it typically marks the
start of the peak demand sea-
son for public water suppliers.
Each week the district will
provide a couple of simple
water conservation tips that
the average resident can use.
This week the focus is on fix-
tures.
Dripping faucets~ can be
repaired by replacing the
washers or tightening the fix-
ture. A variety of repair kits
can be found in local home

stores. Most kits contain

AVO PAR a This
weekend s Relay for Life in
Avon Park will be an action-
packed 18 hours of fun for
everyone, promises chairman
Lee Ann Hinskey.
And she extends an invita-
tion to the general ptiblic to
come out and enjoy the fun.
Hinskey, who is coordinat-
ing her second Relay, said the
event will get under way at 11
a.m. as cancer survivors begin
singing in. At noon is when
the opening ceremony will
take place, which will include
the Survivors Lap.
So far 67 survivors have
registered, but more are
expected. *
This year, Hinskey said,
will be a bit different in that a
second Survivor Lap will take
place at 8:15 p~m. This lap
will be for those Seventh-Day
Adventist survivors who will.
not be aple to participate in
the earlier lap.
"They should be able to
experience everything that the
others srv vrs exper iec sek

said
So far 20 teams are regis-
tered for the Relay. Normally,
each team would average
about 15 people, but Hinskey
said one team, that of
Adelaide Shores, has -62
members registered,
The Relay committee's
biggest hope is that the com-
niunity comes out and partici-
pates
I "It's going to be a night of
frin. If you don't like one
thing that is going on, there
will be something coming up
that you will like," she said.
"Elvis" will be there to
entertain the crowd, as will
the Gutter Band, a young rock
band; George Wilson, a
gospel singer, and Lora
autton. And if that's not
engggh music, 'there will be
time for lip synching and
dancing through the wee
inorning hours.
If music is not your thing,
there is are Mr. and Mz. Relay
pageants, Tai Chi activities
and entertainment from the
Step by Step Dance Studio.
There will also be other par-


ness owner he owns and
operates Pool Paradise was
unable to carry health insur-
ance for his family. Since
Kurtz aged out of Healthy
Children at 18, his mother
Michelle Morrow said, he has
been without insurance of any
kind.
Worse, even if he were to
be able to obtain insurance
immediately, he still wouldn't
get the help he needs, because
the hepatitis is a pre-existing
condition and he would have
to wait a year to be eligible
for coverage. .
Unfortunately, while his
doctors indicate there is no
way to pinpoint the timing,
Kurtz might need his
inevitable transplant as early
as this September, meaning he
could be out of luck.
That is because of the cost.
Kurtz's mother said that
even with commercial insur-
ance, her son would have to
have $1 million worth of cov-
erage. She has been told by a
transplant counselor that, in
lieu of insurance, the family
will need to have a minimum
of $300,000-400,000, cash in
the bank at the start, just to
pay for the transplant alone
(Medicaid will help with
medications afterwards).
In the meantime all anyone
can do is wait until Kurtz gets
worse, despite the fact that
Kurtz's father, Brad Kurtz,
has been matched .and volun-
teered to donate a part of his
liver as a live donor.
But here's the rub, as
explained by Morrow.. The
live donor is typically cov-
ered by the recipient's insur-
an~e,meaning the father can-
not hedp his son because there
is no insurances
This is all driving Morrow
to rage and despair. "You
have to be a millionaire to be
this sick in this country," she
said, her eyes snapping along
with her words. "They won't
even let him on the waiting

SEBRING Tuesday was
William Kurtz's birthday. He
turned 22 years old.
This is more of a miracle
than might be expected.
That is because Kurtz was
diagnosed with leukemia
when he was 16 months old.
Covered at the time by the
government's program of
health insurance for children
-- Healthy Children he
endured years of chemothera-
py and blood transfusions to
beat back- the disease and was
declared in remission when he
was about 6, in 1988.
Ten years passed, the fami-
ly secure in thinking Kurtz
was well.
Then came the 10-year
anniversary checkup and a
terrible shock.
While Kurtz was still in
remission from the cancer, he
had developed Hepatitis B as
a side effect of the cancer
treatments .
Hepatitis B is one of sever-
al viral diseases that can com-
promise the liver's function,
While it typically is not life
threatening, running its own
course, it does occasionally
become chronic and danger-
ous.
That was the case with
Kurtz .
His doctors immediately
began treatment, which ini-
tia'lly seemed to work well.
Then the disease returned,
only twice as powerful.
Another, stronger course of
treatment was tried with the
same result. And so it was
with yet a third try.
The end result is that, even
though he currently has
enough energy -and health to
work'with his father, Ktirtz is
now in liver failure and in
need of a transplant.
It is at this point that the
story, already unsettling,
becomes down right ugly.

list yet.
"William is going to have
to literally be in critical con-
dition before he will even
,qualify for a1 liver," she said.
"They will make him get that
sick and suffer before doing
anything."
Other people, however, are
ready and willing to help.
In fact, the community has
responded in Isuch a big way
the family is overwhelmed
and awestruck.
It began with a handful of
motorcycle enthusiasts who
decided to turn their annual
poker run-for-fun, into a
fundraiser for Kur-tz.
What had been expected to
be -a small event has mnush-
roomed into something huge
with motorcycle groups com-
ing from as far away as
Winter Haven to participate.
As many as 250 individuals
are expected. .
Over 30 businesses have
donated prizes and silent auc-


tion items.
In fact, the final stop liad to
be changed from the Caddy
Shack to the larger Why Not
Lounge because of the
response.
One of the motorcycle
groups, ABATE, is helping
Kurtz out a second time. Back
when hie was 17 months old
and fighting cancer, the group
took part in another poker run
to help the family. Everyone
is hoping it brings as much
good fortune this time around.
Kickstands go up at 10 a.m.
Saturday at CarlyLynns (the
Bar Bar) on the west side of
U.S. 27 just past U.S. 98.
In the interest of time the
poker handl will be played at
4:30 p.m. at the final stop, the
Why Not Lounge at 623 U.S.
27 S. The poker hand is $10
with a 50/50 draw. The auc-
tion will take place at 5:30

finished pieces such as will be hung for
this show. She sometimes uses a tech-
nique she calls Keniwashi, with "washi"
meaning paper in Japanese. She also
makes greeting cards. -
Stone is a realistic painter who grew
up in Rockford, Mich. She, too, loved to
draw from childhood. After her marriage,
she and her family moved to Indiana and
later Ohio, where she taught art. Stone is
known for her paintings of magnolia
blossoms and she also takes commissions
as a portrait artist.


Wade loves broad brush work and has
dabbled recently in a water-soluble oil
paint. She likes lots of pigment on her
canvas, with bold colors. Her early years
were spent in the mountains of North
Carolina in the town of Nebo. She, too,
knew from an young age that art was to
be in her life. For the past 15 years, she
has painted "non-stop."
All three of these delightful women
will be present at the Open House and
will be happy to discuss their techniques
and experiences in their own field of
expression. Refreshments will be served.

Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Now in its
sixth year, the American Red
Cross rocked the night once
again on Saturday night with
the annual Red and White
Ball.
This year's ball has the
dual distinction of having the
most sponsors of any year and
also of having the title spon-


sors '- The Thakkar
Foundation, Drs. Vinod and
Tarlika Thakkar sign on as a
perpetual sponsor for each
year to help ensure funds for
American Red Cross pro-
grams and disaster response
in Highlands County.
More than 200 people
reserved seats for this year's
event, held in Founder's Hall


of Highlands Ridge South,
which donated the facility.
Simply TriSh catered dinner
while GrooVus fired up the
dance floor with rock 'n' roll
classics. In the warm, clear
night, patrons could wander
under the skies or place a bid
on items in the silent auction.
During dinner, Art
Harriman, director of the
Highlands Red Cross, person-
ally thanked The Thakkar
Foundation, presenting an
award to Dr. Pankaj Patel
M.D.., who accepted on the
Thakkars' behalf. Harriman
and local Red Cross board
members David Onsted and
Vicki Jarvris also thanked
event sponsors Cohan Rldio
Group, Highlands Today, and
WFHT Radio.
Premiere sponsors ,were
News-Sun, Florida Hospital
Heartland Division, Hear-tlanid
Sun Times and Jackson
Hewitt Tax Service. White
sponsors honored were Ailan

John Caruso, Highlands
County sheriff's Office exec-.

Total Horie Health, and
Chuck Westberry Electrdidg
Contractors Inc. Red
Sponsors honored were
Monta and Cathy -Clemons,
Heacock Insurance,
Highlands Independent Bank,
and Kenneth and Eileen
Melvin .
As of Monday, preliminary
estimates have the Ball earn-
ing more than $7,500, after
expenses, which' will go a
long way to~keeping the local
Red Cross ready to respond to
disasters, and to helping pro`-
grams to train and prepare the
community. An average of 91
cents of every dollar 'the Red?
Cross spends is :iIxivested in
humanitarian services and' ...
programs. The Red Cross is
not a' government agency, so
it relies on donations of timte
and money from average citi-

Gomng m Circles
True, the winter season is winding down. Longer
and longer caravans of recreational vehicles rumble
north along U.S. 27. Lines are getting shorter in our
stores and restaurants. Tickets at the Highlands Little
Theatre are slightly easier to find.
And still we take our lives in our hands every time
we enter the whirling derby of navigating Sebring's
historic Circle.
For one thing, too many drivers treat Circle Road as
if it were a highway. They go way too fast for the con-
ditions, which include back-out parking and pedestri-
ans.
Worse, way too many drivers treat the road as if it
was their personal driveway sailing around without a
single signal.
Traffic rules changed on the Circle about a year ago
in an effort to improve flow and safety.
Instead of having the circulating traffic stop, as it
used to, to keep Ridegewood Drive moving freely
north and south, the modern European roundabout
design was introduced meaning the traffic on the
Circle always keeps moving, avoiding the jams that
occurred when entering vehicles had the right of way.
This means, however, that vehicles feeding in from ~
the side streets, including Ridgewood, have to stop or
yield before entering.
At certain times of the day, this can mean a long
wait, which in turn often leads to impulsive, frustrat-
ed moves like cutting in front of someone, or back-
ing the car out of a parking place even when a vehi~
cle is approaching. -
There are two very simple things we can all do to
ease the situation.
First, slow down.
After all, you chose the route, knowing what is
involved. Instead of getting hissy, take a minute to
enjoy the view.
Second, signal your intentions.
If you are going north on Ridgewlood and are going
to turn onto Commerce Avenue, for example, let peo-
ple know, especially the driver at Center Avenue just
beyond, so he or she can take advantage of the hole
and enter the Circle.
On the streets these days we hear a lot from people
who just want our lawmakers, of whatever party or
philosophy, to work together to find solutions.
But think about this if we can't find it within
ourselves to be thoughtful and cooperative 'about
something as simple as driving around a beautiful
park, how can we expect our lawmakers to cooperate
on solving the really difficult, ugly and scary issues?



Lesson learned at the beach


the ground beneath me. I was
looking for my all favorite
shell, the small cone-like
shell (like a cerith) that fits
on the tip of your fingertip.
It's tiny structure leaves me
awe-struck at the delicacy of
nature.
There, beneath my toes,
was a small shell. As I
picked it up, I wondered at
the animal that used to live
inside of this shell. How tiny
it must have been. Yet,
despite its size, it was still
able to find a safe home a
safe hiding place. If my God
made these to take care of
such small creatures, how
much more he loves me, His
child.
Throughout various places
I have one of these tiny
shells on my work desk,
on my night stand, even on
the dashboard in my car. It is
a simple reminder of a safe
place and of how precious I
am in the sight of my
Creator. With my tiny shell
in boot, I left that day
reminded of these beautiful
truths.

their means they are being forced to sur-
render their homes to foreclosure. These
mortgages aren't owned by a bank,
instead they're sold to investors on the
~secondary market.
Because of the home building boom
we had into 2006 there is a sizable sup-
ply of new homes. Over building,
falling prices and growing foreclosures -
create a vicious cycle; the more prices
fall the less likely it is that borrowers
can use home equity to ref finance into
more affordable loans, which leads to
more defaults.
Now all this financial activity have,
like blood in the water, drawn those
sharks that prey on the misery of the
less fortunate, unethical lawyers.
It lias been said, "Nobody wins when
a home enters foreclosure neither the
borrower, who is evicted, nor the lender,
who takes a loss when the home is
resold ."
Don't believe it!
Behind the scenes a small army of
law firms and default servicing compa-
nies, who represent mortgage lenders,
have been raking in mounting profits.
These little-known firms assess legal
fees and a host of other charges, calcu-'l
'late what the borrowers owe and draw
up the documents required to remove
them from their homes. As the volume
of the business has soared, firms that
handle loan defaults have been the pri-
.mary beneficiaries.
Court documents say law firms have
issued claims without regard for the
requirements of bankruptcy law. Some
of the largest firms in the industry have
repeatedly submitted false affidavits
when moving to seize homes and levied
improper fees that make it harder for
homeowners to get back on track with
payments. These "foreclosure mills".get
paid by the volume and speed with
which they process these foreclosures,
then kickback some of the: profits to the
lender.
The Bush administration actively
blocked state governments when they
tried to protect families agaiilst predato-
ry lending.

It was one of those days
where the sun was shining

blowing through the trees.
The partly cloudy sky gave a
nice hiding place for those

everyone else had the exact
idea that we did head to
the beach for the day, for the
sntt erwet cowr d.e Ye the
the pier-like structure that '
brings you in from the park-
ing lot, the crowds seemed to
disperse.
This was the first time that
my feet were hitting the
beach sand in months. I was
thrilled to feel the sand in
between my toes and hear
the sound of the ocean roar-
ing in the background. I was
excited to lie out on a blan-
ket and spend time with
some dear girlfriends. Yet,
what I was about to discover
that day would leave me '
feeling wondrous inside, a
feeling that is all too often
impossible to explain. .
It all began with just a
mild look around at my set-
tings. With the time that I
have- gotten to know myself,
I should have guessed imme.
diately that this was heading
in the direction that it was. I
saw that there were still parts
of the beach left unexplored,
undiscovered by the throngs
of people there today. With a
single glint in my eye, I was
off for another adventure.
One of my favorite feel-
ings is to tread the sands
right as the ocean's waves
collapse against the sandy
shores. To get to the destina-
tion that was unknown, I
walked in this manner _
constantly keeping an eye on


Why would an PBI agent choose to
retire in Highlands County, Florida, I
am frequently asked. After learning I
had family living here, the questions
ceased. Perhaps they hoped to hear that
I had to retire ill a small, sleepy rural
county where the mob could not find
me? When I can't entice them with any
really good FBI stories, I ask them if
they are from Highlands County or a '
"relocator" like me. A few say they
were born here, but most also have a
similar story to mine.
3 guess that is why few talk about it,
but every story I have heard is very
interesting. Mine included, but this col-
umn is not about my exciting retirement
in Highlands County. It is about discov-
ering a wonderful, vibrant, growing '
county!
We had planned to retire to an easy,
well deserved lifestyle after moving five
times (but six different offices in the
FBI) in 20 years. A typical FBI agents '
puts in a minimum of 50 hours a week,
but many more, me included, worked 60
hours a week. That did not include the
many international trips where it was
24/7. '
So how is life in Highlands County?
It took me getting pulled out of retire-
ment to really see what a great county
this is. B~yhappenstance, if there is such
a thing, I meet Sheriff Susan Benton at
a Leadership Seminar at the FBI's office
in Miami. She was the guest speaker to
our management team. When I told her
I was retiring and would be living in
Highlands County, she quickly asked me


Club. Can you believe there are a group
of dedicated professionals and retirees
Swho meet at 6:30 a.m. each Thursday to
talk about how they can help our kids? I
thought they were a rare group until I
was invited to talk to the Sunrise Rotary
Club, who also meet oilce a week to talk
About how they can help our kids? Then
off to Lake Placid to discover another
dedicated group who spend their lunch
hour once a wekk to talk about how they
can help our kids? And then I was invit-
ed to one of the best networking lunch-
cons I have ever attended, put on by the
Sebring Chamber of Commerce. Wow!'
,Talk about energy and professionalism.
And finally, attended a Teen Pregnancy
Prevention Alliance (TPPA) meeting to
help prepared for the Teen Panel
Discussions for all the eighth-graders in
our county. They will learn about absti-
nence.
Now these were mostly government
workers, so I felt very at home with
them. But I have rarely seen such enthu-
siasm for a group of dedicated profes-
sionals wanting to make a difference in
the lives of our children. So it took a
few months of quiet research and analy-
sis to see another side of life that I feel
very few in our county know about. Or
maybe the Kiwanis, Rotary, Chamber of
Commerce, and the TPPA knew some-
thing that I had to be invited to see!

Debbie Lees, a retired Special Agent of the
FBI, is now working at the sheriff's office as
substance abuse reduction coordinator under
a state grant.


Editorial & Opinion


Letters


Notice to the un-informed
and ill-informed
Editor:
The "Right to own and bear arms and
shall not be infringed" was affirmed by
Georgia Supreme Justice Joseph Henry
Lumpkin in an opinion he authored in
1846 involving the case of Nunn V.
State of Georgia.
"The right of the whole people, old
and young, men, women and boys and
not Militia only, to keep and bear arms
of every description and not such mere-
ly as are used by the Militia, shall not
be infringed, curtailed or broken in
upon, in the smallest degree."
This information can be verified on
the Internet. It was provided to me by
our State representative, Denise

Sebring

Individual schools
set the events
SEditor:
The recent editorial entitled "Equal
Education for all in county" caused a
stir among several teachers at Sebring
High School. Most particularly affected d
were those involved in the arrangement
of visits from a forensics investigator,
pathologist and a medical examiner, as
well as internationally acclaimed author
Alane Fergusen. The point of the edito-
rial seems based on an erroneous
assumption that The School Board of
Highlands County arranges for events at
each school, and is engaged in a type of
geographical discrimination,
Perhaps if the editor had taken an
investigative step, she would have been
directed to the real movers behind this
work: teachers! The Sebring High media
specialist, Sandra Rankhorn, met with
media specialists from six schools ---
Avon Park High, Avon Park Middle,
Lake Placid High, Lake Placid Middle,
Hill-Gustat Middle, and Sebring High in
November to brainstorm bringing Alane `
Fergusen to Highlands County, and
planning introductory events. Many
ideas were discussed, and each school
opted to arrange their own pre-event
activities, as the author will be visiting
several schools in the county. Each
school also contributed to the cost of
hosting Ms. Fergusen; Sebring High
School's share came from School
Advisory Committee team and funds, as
well as generous community members.
Mrs. Rankhorn, who is a tireless, enthu-
siastic support person for the staff at
Sebring High, contacted the sheriff's
department and the medical examiner's
office. Another teacher, Colleen Polatty,
heard of the activity and worked with
Mrs. Rankhorn and Mrs. Mann to invite
a personal friend who is a pathologist.
Mrs. Rankhorn did the~ work of schedul-
ing, arranging for space, and contacting
the newspaper for publicity. The guest
speakers were on a volunteer basis.
The editor and general public need to
know about the initiative teachers take
to educate the county's children. They
also need to know that the entire school
"village" is involved, including admin-
istration, teachers, support staff, custo-
dians, and cafeteria workers. Events fea-

if I would like to work for the sheriff's
office. I was flattered, but we had
already decided when we retired, we
would work for ourselves. That lasted
about a year and a half.
The offer was still standing when I
called the sheriff and asked if she had
any openings. It took a while, but she
found several~ things she thought would
be a good fit, but I jumped at the chance
to conduct research and analysis for a
Substance Abuse Reduction Grant. So
for the past five months, I have been
conducting a lot of research and analy-
sis. It has been fascinating and I loved
the introverted lifestyle I had always
dreamed of. Little did I know when I
was assigned to work with Sgt. Monica
Sauls,' life would be anything but intro-
verted.
This community is full of energetic,
generous, and fun people! I guess when
I first noticed there was something dif-
ferent was when an article appeared in
the newspaper about my work, Susan
Acorsi, Life Skills teacher at Sebring
High School, wanted me to come talk to
her students about my work.
Talk about energetic. She was a
breath of fresh air \vith her love of her
students. (There are a lot of teachers
who attend my church with this same
love and passion. Who hasn't seen
Rhoda Wolfe with her 200 students,
singing to perfection?)

The VA is in the largest cemetery expansion
project since the Civil War era, and operates at
the current time 125 national cemeteries in 39
states. More than 3.4 million Americans,
including veterans from the Revolutionary
War to the Global War on Terror are buried in
VA's national cemeteries.
Veterans with a discharge other than dishon-
orable, their spouses and dependent children
are eligible for burial in any national VA
cemetery. Other burial benefits for eligible
veterans include a burial flag, a Presidential
Memorial Certificate, and a government
issued headstone or marker, even if they are
not buried in a national cemetery, according to
Joseph A. Diomrie, Highlands County Veteran
Services Office.


SpecLiall to, the News-Sun l
JACKSONVILLE The Department of
Veterans Affairs has named its newest nation-
al cemetery to be constructed in Jacksonville,
as the Jacksonville VA National Cemetery, and
will be headed by Ar-leen Vincenty, as its first
director.
Vincenty will begin her duties immediately.
She had been the director of the Puerto Rico
National Cemetery since November 2006, and
has served as cemetery director of the Natchez
National Cemetery in'Mississippi; Fayetteville
National Cemetery in Arkansas; and the
Salisbury National Cemetery Complex in
North Carolina.
The veterans from the northeastern section
of Florida and southeastern areas of Georgia
will have a cemetery closer to their families.
The new cemetery, located in Jacksonville,
is just north of the Jacksonville International
Airport and only five miles from Interstate
295. It sits on 569 acres of land that the VA
received from the city. The cemetery's plans
are to serve 189,000 remains.
VA anticipates the start of the construction
of the first phase of development to begin this
summer. VA has hired England, Thims &
Miller engineering firm of Jacksonville to
design the layout of t~he project. Initial con-
struction will prepare a small burial area to
ensure that veteran burials can take place
before all phase one facilities are completed.

115 that performed like "500
people ."
Ruth Handley, earlier rec-
ognized as one of the reasons
for the Children's Advocacy
Center, said Thaqi ran an
efficient, "quiet" and scan-
dal-free operation.
"I ask on this proclamation
we leave an open invitation
for her to come back anytime
she wants," Handley said.


Continued from 1A
child's prayer after watching
a news report about an
abused girl and what happens
to her parents.
The song closes with,
"And please don't' tell my
daddy, but my momnlry hits
me too..." '
The courthouse ceremony
was followed up across the
street in the county commis-
sion chamber, where a child
abuse awareness proclama-
tion was read and approved.
"As you're going by the
courthouse, just glance over
and look at the pinwheels,"
Commissioner Donl Bates
suggested.


Her concern was the use of
a term "net water producer" to
promote the environmentally-
friendly plants. Does that
refer just to the processing of
feedstock? .
Or, does it account for the
whole process from planting
sorghum to transporting the


ethonal to a distributor that
would blend it with gasoline?
The limitation imposed by
the county includes a mini-
mum plant site o~f 20 acres, a
1,000 feet odor buffer
between residences and oh-
site and specialized firefight-
ing equipment.

Continued from 1A
EnviroFuels.
Rep. Tim Mahoney joined
the conversation by phone,
noting that a house bill would
guarantee demand for
ethanol.
"Those days are behind
us," Mahoney said of oil fluc-
tuations of $50 per barrel.
Mahoney, who is seeking
re-election to it second term,
said the commissioners
should keep "the children" in
mind when they decide
whether to allow bio-fuel
plants to locate here.
"It's an industry that
reflects our values," he said,
arguing a bio-fuel is a green
industry that promotes agri-
culture over development.
"Highlands County could
become the bio-fuels capital
of America."
Mahoney is a member of
the hosue agriculture commit-
te wi i qpuepar ngoamb l
nies to buy 100 million gal-
lons of ethanol per year ini-
tially and 23 billion gallons
by 2026.
Swain encouraged the com-
missioners to look at the bi g
picture, asking how "green" a
bio-fuel plant really is.

FAMIILY FEATURES


your friends and family. Nothing gives you the
taste of sunshine quite like outdoor entertain-
ing. Giving your gathering a tropical feel does
n't have to mean expensive plane tickets,
fancy hotels and crowded beaches. All it takes
is a little atmosphere and delicious food and wine that puts you
in an island frame of mind.
The warmer temperatures call for a menu that's light and
healthy, but with a uniquely tropical flavor. Mangos, the word's
most popular fruit, are a perfect ingredient
to enjoy any time of year. Delicious to eat, mangos also have
an exotic, luscious taste that enhances appetizers, salads,
entries,;desserts and beverages. The abundance of mango vari-
eties offers versatile flavors ranging from sweet to slightly
spicy.
Start the party with a tropical twist on the classic caprese
salad by layering juicy mango slices and fresh mozzarella and
topping with oil, seasonings and basil. For an easy, casual
entrde with a beachy feel, Baja Fish Tacos and Mango Salsa
are sure to please. Perfect for easy entertaining, the Asian
inspired mango and chicken lettuce wraps add a ~riot of deli-
cious colors and flavor to your plate. They're easy to make
and fun to eat you don't even need a fork!
With anyr great dinner, you need a great wine to complement
your food. Wines with bright, fruit-forward flavors pair well
with a variety of food styles. To enhance your mango-inspired
dishes, serve the crisp and food-friendly style of Riesling or
Chardonnay selections from Mirassou WineryaY. Grown in
Monterey County, the cooler temperature on the coast yields a
longer growing season, which allows the grapes to develop
deep flavors and results in intensely flavorful wines with love-
ly tropical fruit overtones. Mirassou Monterey County
Chardonnay has crisp fruit flavors of peach and nectarine with
lovely hints of tropical fruit and vanilla, while Mirassou
Monterey County Riesling is delightfully crisp and refreshing,
with aromas and flavors of peaches, apricots and apples.
Inspired by tropical food and crisp, fruit-forward wine -
you'll agree, warm weather never tasted so good!

Mango 101
a Mangos are a year-r'ound source of the naturally
*sweet, refreshing taste of the tropics.
a Mangos contain more than 20 different vitamins gnd
minerals, ar~e a good source of dietary fiber, and are
an excellent source of vitamins C and A, both
important antioxidant nutrients.
'" To determine ripeness, squeeze the mango gently. A
ripe mango should give slightly, but` not be too soft,
a To ripen firm mangos, store at room temperature.
They will continue to ripen and become sweeter and
softer over several days.
m Once ripe, store mangos in the refrigerator for up to
five days.

Millions of children at risk from undetected vision problems


dren. Binocular
vision disorders rep-
resent problems with
both eyes working
together.
Children with
these types of prob-
lems have no diffi-
culty passing a
vision screening.
They can often see
20/20 with each eye
individually; howev-
er, when using both
eyes at near dis-


treated with either vision
therapy or glasses..This is not
to say, of course, that some
children do not need these
behavioral medications, but it
is critical to have their eyes
examined first.
In addition to checking a
child's visual acuity and eye
muscle coordination, a pedi-
atric examination will also
include an examination of
their overall eye health.
Children are susceptible to
many of the same ocular; dis-
eases as adults, although at a
much lower rate.
Just about every parent
makes sure that their child
has their first dental exam
before entering kindergarten.
Make sure their eyes are
checked as well. After all,
this is hov2 they learn.

Yalerie Moulds is a board certi-
jied optometric physician practic-
ing in Sebring and is Arizona
and F~lorida certzyied in diagnos-
tics and therapeutics. She is a
member of the American
Oftometric Association, Arizona
Optometric Association and
Florida Optometric Association.


National studies show that
20-25 percent of more than
39 million children are at risk
to suffer from undetected
vision problems. Impaired
vision in children can seri-
ously affect learning abilities
and contribute to the devel-
opment of behavior prob-
lems, such as attention deficit
disorder. ..
Early discovery and treat-
ment can prevent many of
these problems. Parents are
often unsure about when a
child should have their first
eye exam. If there is a family
history of vision problems,
the first exam should occur
around the age of 6 months.
Not every eye doctor offers
this type of pediatric exami-
nation, so be sure to check
with the office when making
thie appointment to be sure
that your doctor, is comfort-
able with this.
If there is no family histo-
ry of eye problems, the
child's first eye exam should
occur around the age of 3,
and yearly thereafter.
Children with vision prob-
lems are often not even
aware of their difficulty, nor


do they comphtin or
seek help. They
have no point of ref-
erence when they're
young, and assume I~
everyone sees as
they do.
Vision is the
process of obtaining
mettning from what FO(
is seen. It is more
Than clearness of POi
sight. Good vision rV
encompasses the Mol
ability to use the
eyes for extended periods of
time without discomfort, to
analyze and interpret infor-
mation, and to respond to
what is being seen. Good
vision involves normal binoc-
ular vision, accommodation
(focusing at near), ocular
rnotility, and vision informa-
tion processing skills, which
allow us to respond to our
surroundings.
Vision screenings are
offered by many schools, and .
while they represent a posi-
tive effort to discover those
students suffering from a
vision problem, they also
miss 30-40 percent of binoc-
Sular vision disorders in chil-

tances (i.e. reading) they may
have a problem converging
pullingg their eyes in) or
accommodating (keeping
things in focus at near). If a
child cannot look at some-
'thinrg up close without dis-
comfort, they won't!
Unfortunately, these chil-
drern are all too often misla-
beled as "problem" children
because they can't seem to
stay focused in the class-
room.. Between 60-80 ~percent
of my pediatric patients tak-
ing attention deficit/hyperac-
tivity disorder medications

(which are fine as a hair) are
inserted at specific points
along the meridian pathways.
The acupuncture session is a
calming, relaxed experience.
Benefits include a state of
well being as pain is eliminat-
ed that energy balance is
restored, allowing the body to
heal itself.

23. Be sure to come out and
continue to enjoy the time
together and especially to
meet some of our new folks in
the park.
We welcome Ray and
Shirley Young hailing from
Jackson, Miss., now residing
in Jack and Marian Balough's
home on Town & Country
Blvd. You'll enjoy conversing
with them and if you are like
me, will really appreciate
Shirley's English liccent.
They journey yearly to
England to visit her sister and
still have family ties in
Pennsylvania, plus a daughter
and family residing in the
West Palm Beach area. Sadly,
we will be losing two other
Town & Country residents
soon ... Carol Susi is relocat-
ing to the Orlando area to be
near family members. Harold
and Anna McKeen, former
*New Yorkers, have purchased
Carol's home on Springtime
Drive. Sue Dougherty is leav-
ing us for the New Port
Richey area. Bill and Louise
Mattson are acquiring Sue's
home on Woodbine. We shall
surely miss you, ladies, ald
wish yoix the best in your new
homes. We will welcome the
new families as they arrive.

Loretta has been in Sarasota
Rehab recovering from a seri-
ous stroke but Joyous to be
home, as is Don. The facility
gave him mn-depth instruction
to care for her so between his
help and more therapy we
should see Loretta out and
about also. Both are so thank-
ful for their progress and to be
in their homes again. Gene
Clark continues rehab at

Kenilworth Care Center after
hip surgery. He and Evelyn
are rejoicing that his therapy
is working well and hopefully
he will be home within the
next few weeks also. We are
happy to know Marge Bedard
is back in Sebring at The
Palms after hospitalization in
Tampa. Quite coincidental,
Dixie Cooper's roommate
moved out. the day Marge
returned and they are now
roommates. They live one
house apart on Springtime, so
should have much to chat
- about! Best recuperative
wishes to both. We continue
to think of both Art and
Wanda Dupree as they battle
serious illnesses. Our heart-
felt prayers to both.
I personally had a fun expe-
rience last weekend walking
in the second annual Red
Cross Run/Walk at Highland
Hammock State Park. It was
really rewarding (and amaz-
ing to me) to complete 3.1
miles in under 50 minutes. Set
your goals, folks, and join us
next year. You are supporting
Red Cross Disaster Relief in
our area and having an enjoy-
able time doing so.

this trouble.
Line dancing is every
Wednesday night and they
still would like to have you
give them a chance. Our hall
is safe for 250 present at one
time and we are not near this
number yet.
Ken Price has to go north
early because his wife's dri-
ver's license expires. He will
be back in the fall and he will
not be working so we will see
more of Ken. Carl Wile has
rebuilt all of our tournament
block holders in his spare
time. John Bushee is the only
club member that would know
that this had been done if Carl
had not been seen in the act.
He was setting the tables up
for euchre with Marilyn and
Ann Kisel. While at it, he set
up tables for bingo tonight,
which he will call. Our club
has so many that serve unno-
ticed as they go about their
business
We have two tables for
table tennis and at the present
time they fill the bill for us.

once every 20.7 at bats, leading
the league four times in that

Just wanted to remind base-

player, truly was throughout his
career, as well as to push away
what mislead so many to see
him for just that one moment.
I am happy for Bill Buckner
today.
I'm glad the Red Sox did
what they did, and I am moved
that their fans gave him the
ovation that was due to him.
It was long overdue.

base hits on pitches he was so
fooled by that he threw his bat
at the ball and still got it out of
the infield.
For his career, Buckner
