Burglarized between
Thursday night and early
Friday morning.
Personal property, change
and electronics, including up
to three iPods, were swiped
from cars in the Garland
Avenue area.
"The problem is the vic-

don't need a lot of .criminal
experience to steal from an
unlocked car," said Lt. Tim
Lethbridge of the Highlands
County. Sheriff's Office. "jif
you lock your cars, 99 out of
100 times they wion't break

The thefts occurred months
after multiple arrests in car
"fishing" cases, where
thieves try to open cars until
they find unlocked doors.
Reports of car fishing died

SEBRING -County
Administrator semifinalist
David Lair was a strong
enough applicant on paper that
he was one of five to garner
seven or more votes from a
citizen selection committee.
He's been the administrator
of Geauga County, Ohio, since
2005. He was promoted from
director of special projects, for ,
which he was hired in 2004.

Ohio Toh sh snscheef fnu -
cial officer, an elected posi-
tion, since 1988.
Tallie Menzie, of search
firm Colin Baenziger
and Associates, inter-
viewed Lair.
"Mr. Lair is antici- .
pating a change in
composition of his
county board next year
and he is an at-will L
employee without a
contract," Menzie said of the

in c ring to a March 20,
Geauga County Maple Leaf
article, the change won't come
until December, when a com-
missioner retires.
The county auditor is run-
ning unopposed for that seat
and Lair has been mentioned
as a possible replacement for
the auditor, Glen Miller
reported in his story.
Miller contacted Lair's
commissioners, who provided
favorable comments about
their administrator.
Even the anticipated new
commissioner spoke favorably
of Lair.
"I have no intention of leav-
ing here, but' thought it pru-
dent just in case a new board
of commissioners should
decide they no longer need my
services for whatever reason,
Lair'told Miller.
To the head hunter, Lair
described his "biggest mis-
take" as not being more direct
with his board.
"He does not like to ruffle


feathers but wants to be the
peacemaker," Menzie wrote-
"Mr. Lair feels he may be a lit-
tle too eager not to offend peo-
ple. He also feels he could
have thicker skin at times."
During a phone interview
Friday with the News-Sun,
Lair said the Maple Leaf used
his quote out of context.
He figured himself to be a
long shot to replace Carl Cool,
who retires in May after more
than 16 years.

becassueb I on titr in ,
Lair said, noting Highlands
and Geauga are similar coun~
ties. "I certainly didn't submit
it frivolously."
Lair said he's unique
relative to other appli-
cants, because he came
from the private sector,

nology director for

ogy Inc. and controller~

"My background is uncon-
ventional," he said. "Ninety-
five percent of the time, my
resume is probably thrown in
the dircular file.,,
It's not so much that he's
looking to leave his current
job as he's looking to take the
next logical step, Lair said.
Highlands commissioners
on Tuesday are expected to
choose their five finalists.
Lair complemented the
process.
"People just don't spend
this kind of time on the front
end as they should," he said,
explaining he anticipates the
cottnty will be~nefit in the end.
If Lair makes the cut, he'll
use the April 23 meet-and-
greet to gauge the community
to ensure he'll be as good a fit
here as he is in Ohio.
"If I were the one picked, I
wouldn't be coming down
there to fail," Lair said. "I
would come down to exceed
everybody's expectations."

"I really didn't expect them

they asked questions,"
Badillo said. "They were all

Badillo is fluent in English

won't admit to -being com-

"My mom helped me with

She has a knack for public

This is different than the

SSEBRING Supervisor of
Elections Joe Campbell was
surprised Friday to learn he
contributed to Robert "Bob"
Germaine' s campaign for
Clerk of Courts.
Well, he didn't contribute to
Germaine's campaign or to
those of any other candidates
in any other races.
"I don't. back any candi-
dates," Campbell.
The News-Sun on Friday
inadvertently reported
$65.1'0 expenditure ~to .his
office for a routine signature


the public and those running
for office that, because he's
the chief vote counter, he
remains non-partisan.
He doesn't endorse candi-
dates, contribute money to
their campaigns or lobby on
their behalf.
"I called Mary Wilson to let
her know that I didn't give any
money to Germaine ,"
Campbell said during a phone
interview.
Wilson is Germaine's oppo-
nent in the race for court
clerk
The law doesn't preclude
him a su ervisor of elec-
tions, from financial contribu-
tions. Even as a member of the
canvassing ~board, Campbell
said campaign donations are
OK.
However, the law doesn't
allow canvassing board mem-
bers to "actively" campaign
for candidates, he said.
"I always make it a policy
-of mine not to support any-
body because I have to deal
with all of them," Campbell
said. "What I'm going to do

The choice, he told the
men, is whether they lay in

"Or, will you be a man and

"You talk to women, they

Stine was passionate -
passionate about his disdain
for political correctness and
passionate for the defense of
families and churches.
Standing up for your
beliefs, and allowing others
their beliefs, doesn't make
you a close-minded hate mon-
ger, Stine said.
"It's the wussification of
America that's killing us," he
said. "If political correctness
existed back in the 1700s, we
wouldn't exist."
Stine referenced the
Declaration ,of
Independence's preamble,
where its drafters included,
"... endowed by their creator."
But, it was the Bible that he
referenced in a call to arms to
defend Christianity.
"That is our people and
their stories," Stine said,


all of his stories were true.
Some were national head-
lines. One was personal.
"Until a few months ago,
,my father never said he loved.
me," Cahill said. "He didn't
hug me, unless I initiated it.'
Cahill said he struggled as
a man until he was reborn in
Jesus. Then, he broke the
cycle and h'e gave himself up
to God. His two brothels
aren't born again, he said.
"tBoys need to see dads take


a step in faith," he said.
"We're a work in progress."
Cahill said he can't spend
much time talking about
worldly things because he's
compelled to talk about Jesus.
Even at a baseball game, he'd
rather witness than wait for
the "eight and a half minutes
of action."
"'We've backed up enough
in America," Cahill said.
'"We're dying for leaders. We
love to follow."


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE CITY Surrounded by
friends old and new as well as his
family, Keith Goodson was hon-
ored March P7 in Lake City after
completing a downtown mural,
The day was officially declared
Keith Goodson Day in the small
north Florida towin.
Inspired the Ichetucknee
Springs, the 86-foot long mural is
full of water, wildlife, flowers
pedcanoeso f everything on
Ichetucknee.
It was Lake City's first mural '
oh~e that came together after three
years of hopes, talks and trips to


other communities known for.
their murals the first, of
course, being the town of Lake
Placid.
In fact, it was Goodson's work
in Lake Placid, which was seen
by Lake City mural committee
members, that landed him the
job~. According 't
LakeCityJourn~al.com, member
James .Montgomery had the
belief "that the quality of this
first work had to be of the highest
standard so as to set the bar
extremely high in terms of quali-
ty for all of the new downtown
murals ."

Other viewpomnts

Florida's economic future rests, in large part, on the
quality of the state's education system. Yet lawmakers
are considering drastic cuts in pubhic-school spending
and even deeper reductions in the state university sys-
tem.

BAtd ths arnt pleonly cutsobeine 2co~n emp at d
et, lawmakers may have trimmed as much as $5 bil-
lion from a wide variety of programs. Those who
don't know much about state government might smile
and nod at this figure, comforting themselves with
platitudes like "they should cut the fat." The reality is
far different: These cuts will have long-term implica-
tions for the state's economy and will do the most
damage to Florida's most vulnerable residents.
Doubt that? Consider the proposals gaining the
most ground:
Both the House and Senate have recommended cuts
to classroom funding, shaving between $86 and $113
in per-student funding and cutting budgets for other
education programs. The cuts would come on top of
budget reductions that have already forced Volusia
County to recommend closing seven schools. In the
meantime, public university tuition would increase,
and enrollment could be frozen at its current level.
Both decisions would paralyze Florida's ability to
produce.qualified high-tech workers even though
the state has spent billions luring technology and
research groups here.
Florida's at-risk children would suffer enormously.
Among the most likely targets for cuts: Healthy Start,
a program that supports pregnant women and their
babies early in life; school readiness programs and
foster-care support, particularly for children who
have "aged out" of the foster-care system. These cuts
are foolhardy: Children deprived of services are far
more likely to end up on welfare or in prison as they
grow older
Minimum staffing levels at nursing homes coul
drop, making the elderly more vulnerable to abuse
and neglect. This shift would abandon hard-won
changes that are making life safer for tens of thou-
sands of nursing-home residents across Florida.
Some lawmakers have proposed eliminating the
Division of Cultural Affairs, wiping out state support
for historical and arts funding in spite of ample evi-
dence that these programs are a strong engine for
tourism .
The cuts go on, as Florida lawmakers wring their
hands and talk about the agony of making "tough
.decisions." Yet few in legislative leadership! have the
courage to address the truly tough decisions: Facing
up to and rectifying the mistakes of the past.
There's still time to change course. Lawmakers
should stop making excuses and start making the right
decisions, ones that safeguard Florida's future and
protect the most defenseless.

The report also indicates
that the missing evidence
"could limit the state's ability
to prosecute a case." This is
another way of saying the
state attorney's office may
have to dismiss cases due to
a lack of evidence and result
in criminals being released
back into our community,
Credibility and the subse-
quent .confidence it provides
are crucial to the success of a
law enforcement agency and
it's critical that citizens know
they are being provided fac-
tual information. This whole
missing evidence explanation
seems consumed with contra-
diction and lacking in candor.
Missiqg evidence of this
magnitude is a serious prob-
lem and the Sheriff should
immediately request an inde-
pendent and respected out-
side agency to conduct a i
thorough evidence audit of
every item of evidence, as
this appears to be onlly the
"tip of the iceberg."

Lady Justice finally '
SmileS On Meus
Editor: -
SLady Justice smiled about
the respective decisions made
by Judge Wallace (2nd
District Court of Appeals>
and Judge McKibben recently
in the Jean Claude Meus
case. She then had to use her
blindfold to dry the tears in
her eyes over the decision of
the state attorney's office to
appeal the ruling made by
Judge McKibben to give this
innocent man a new trial and
overturn the original convic-
tion .
Although those of us that
know and love Jean Claude /
are very thankful to both
Judge Wallace and Judge
McKibbkn, we realize that
because of the appeal made
by the state attorney's office


justice for Jean Claude is still
a while away. The appeals
courts can and often do take
months or even a year for
their opinions. They just
made an opinion in this case :
but like a boomerang the case
is heading back to them.
It is almost as if the state
attorney's office is treating
Jean Claude-like a dog would
treat a meat-covered bone.
They do not want to give him
up; they do not want to admit
they made a niistake in this
case. While real criminals
walk out of court and back
on our streets~daily, they i
want to keep an innocent
man -in f~iis'ol "Something is

While the state attorney's
office wastes more of our tax
money fighting to keep this
man in prison for something
that was an accident his son
is going through his teen
years without his father's
input. Those of us that love
him have no~.been able to be
with him on special days and
holidays for a few years now.
The longer this goes on the
more questions there are but

of having to wait for his new
day in court will still be
there. We want to see him
walk out of there after the
bond hearing. Right now iny
sister Rebecca is doing all

And in the meantime, Lady

Evolutionists have
a hard time believing
Editor:
Allow me to explain the
conflict between creationists
and evolutionists.
Creationists say that the
number of biblical kinds of
animals an'd plants is fixed
and does not increase.
However, there is no agreed
definition of a biblical kind.
Some say that a biblica~ kind
may often be as broad as a
taxonomic family. This is the
position taken by creationists
at Bryan College, named
after William Jennings
Bryan. -
Realizing the enormous
difficulty of getting pairs of
all the world's animals on the
ark, the more sophisticated
creationists claim that the
animals descended later. In
this picture, bobcats, pan-
thers, jaguars., cheetahs,
ocelots, lions and tigers all
descended from Noah's call.
Foxes, coyotes, wolves and
dingoess all descended from
Noah's dog
Evolutionists balk at this
scheme simply because the
creationist timeline doesn't
allow enough time for it to
happen. Creationists say that
~the world is only 6,000 years
old. Since historians say that
written history alone goes
back 6,100 years, the cre-
ationists insist that tpe histo-
rians are wrong,
SSuppose we try to take cre-
ationism seriously. It knust
have taken about a thousand
years from Eden to Noah and
about a thousand years from
Noah to the beginning of
written history. Animals and
plants have changed little
within recorded history. In
the brief time: between Noah
and the beginning of record-
ed history there must have
been an immense diversifica-
tion of animals. Creationists
insist that this is "microevo-


lution" and does not produce
new biblical kinds.
This is impossible, the
evolutionists will say.
Evolutionists simply do not
believe that evolution can
happen as fast as creationists
claim that it did in the after-
math of Noah's Flood.

Nissing evidence is a
SerIOus problem for
Sheriff's office
Editor:
Several weeks ago our
sheriff was questioned by a
newspaper reporter about
rumors that evidence was
missing from the sheriff's
evidence vault and the
reporter was told by the sher-
iff that an annual evidence
audit was being conducted,
but no cases have been .
ruined by missing evidence.
However, in the same article
the sheriff admitted to meet-
ing with the state attorney's
office about issues that may '
affect current cases. .
Doesn't this seem strange?
Why would the sheriff
meet with~the state attorney's
office to discuss a routine
annual audit of thie evidence
if there wasn't a problem?
Fast forward to an April 5
newspaper article regarding
the missing evidence, for
which the sheriff was
unavailable for comment.
The article indicates the sher-
iff's office released a report
stating that for the month of
September 2007, more than
32 items of evidence includ-
ing drugs and a gun could not
be located. Although accord-
ing to the article, DNA evi-
dence is reportedly among
the missing items, the sher-
iff's audit made no reference
to missing DNA which is
only collected in the most
serious violent crimes. .

AVON PARK When Helen
Shevel was 5 years~ old, she
already had her mind made up
about her future. "I knew I was
going to cook and sew and not be
poor," she says as she prepares a
baked chicken salad wreath for
company (a dish, by the way, that
won ribbons for best entrte and
for "best of show" at the 2007
Highlands County Fair)-
And at that age, she also knew
who she wanted to be like. "I
modeled rtlyself after nty Ainish
grandmother. She was meticulous
and she was kmnd, always doing
for other people.
"We'd go visit her and when
she'd place a china cup jn the
saucer, I'd hear the tinkling when
the pieces touched. I knew then I
was going to cook and have a lot
of dishes and I do. ?
Helen also took a page from


to cook~ at church, at our club-
hou~se, if someone needs a meal
fixed I do it." She's now mak-
ing lunches for groups at the his-
torical society's railroad dining

Avon Vark. "I enjoy that," she

In fact, these dining car lunch-
cons with homemade~ soups
and breads and desserts repre-
Ssent her "project of the 'year" for
2008.
"A while ago I decided to' take
on a difficult project once a year
that I've never dond before. Last
year, I recovered cushions for our
patio set. It was the first time I'd
done that."
Why is sh-e so fond of cook-
ing? "I like to make people be
surprised and enjoy the food. And
I think~ all my food should lie
exceptional lacut above.' Ylou

her mother. "I can.i-emember our
Ohio farm.: Mom would run the
cowvs into~ the meadow to eat
some clover. And she always
took something to do, like patch-
work sewing pieces of fabric:
together to make quilts. She'd
give me a needle and show me
how to sew a straight line."
That's how sewing and cook-
ing became so all-important in
her life today. And she's been
recognized for these talents, as a

And another favorite of mine, Malt-O-
Meal. I loved the taste of Malt-O-Meal,
with a spoon of honey and the cream
from a standard milk bottle.
And we did not have any varieties of
milk. No one percent, no two percent, no
no-fat, no homogenization. Back then,
Our milk came in bottles, not cartons, left
on our doorstep by a real person. The
milk and cream were separated, with the
cream on top.
The best-ever milk was delivered in
the winter when the cream would freeze
and poke up beyond the bottle, taking the
bottle cap with it.
I sometimes question what is called
"progress." I would like to return to a
simpler life-and-times, especially at the
grocery store.

Helen has passed on her love of cooking to
their daughters. "They say we should have
had a tea room or a bed-and-breakfast togeth-
er."

Helen's favorite
meal to prepare
She would start off with a garden salad.
"I'd use romaine lettuce or a beautiful bibb
lettuce or a specialty lettuce, like baby
spinach, not iceberg lettuce."
For soup, she'd make chicken noodle, "but
only with homemade noodles!"
And the entr~e would be "a good pot roast,
with potatoes, carrots, parsnips, onions, and
parsley and always some garlic."
And for dessert, pie. "I love to make pie or
pastry and I love them all, from apple to
lemon to pumpkin."

"But once in a while, we do go out to eat.
We like Arby's and we like the unlimited
soup and salad at Red Lobster."
For Helen, her food not only has to taste
good, it has to look good. As Glen who's
also her "greatest critic" puts it,
"Presenting food: that's her big thing,"


She says you can now buy
some health foods at the
supermarkets..In fact, she
cm fro Pulx d h, r she
bought egg plant, fresh
strawberries and organically
grown canned tomatoes. Not
all the produce she buys is
organically grown. "That can
be expensive.
Describing her vegetarian
diet, she says, "My husband

i:-Bring ~~ t aonuE O


By LARRY LEVEY
Senior Scene correspondent
SEBRING -Velmar
Mack, who lives at Whisper
Lake and who is a former
enrollee in the Civilian
Conservation Corps, tells this
story about growing up in thp
Great Depression before join-
ing the CCC. He comes from
a family' of eight kids -
eight, mind you seven
boys and one girl and at a
time when money and food
- were scarce.
But every once in a while
the family scraped up enough
money for a treat, a real treat:
Kellogg's corn flakes.' And


sometimes there'd even be
enough money left over for
some milk.
Oh, boy, corn flakes and
milk!
Because of so many kids,
they had to eat in shifts. Their
mother served the older chil-
dren first. But they had to eat
their corn flakes sind milk ...
with a fork. Yes, a fork. Why'
To make sure there was
enough milk left over for the
younger kids!
If there's one story that
captures the nitty-gritty of the
Depression, this is it,
It's also' one good food
story.

Memories from a friend


My dad is cleaning out my grandmother's house (she died in December) and' he
brought me an old Royal Crown Cola bottle. In the bottle topj was a stopper w th
a bunch of holes in it. I knew immediately what it was, but my daughter had fro
idea. She thought they had tried to milke it a salt shaker or something!
I knew it as the bottle that sat on the end of the ironing board to "sprinklCe"
clothes with because we didn't have steam irons-
_ Man, I am old.

learned on that job. I don't
xhlidn just how to do the work
blit about life and people, things
thirt influenced how I behave
anrd who I am. Like many jobs,
this way it was done then has ..
become obsolete. Technology
has taken over much of what
used to be done by the worker:
It was the~ summer after my
high school graduation and I
ws-starting collegeain the fall.
Te job was fo M el"te
telephone company, and I was

c illed the operator to give you a
cdtmaand place theecall for you.
that you called the information
operator. Since you were talking
to a real person, you got plenty
of help. You could say you were
looking for a laundry or restau-
rant in a certain neighborhood.
Even though you didn't know
the name of the place, she'd find

The operators sat on high
swivel-chairs in front of a long
switchboard. When someone
chiled the operator, a light lit up
at; dvery other station. As soon
its an operator plugged in that
callf's lights went out. During
working hours, it was like a
Chiistmas tree with blinking
lights. Each office was rated on
how quickly calls were picked
up. :
lessonn 1 Always give atten
tiest to what you're doing.
eii had one operator iWho
appeared to be asleep but could
nrever-be faulted for sleeping on
the job. She was one of the

board unless she (vie were all


tomer would be irate accusing,
"Operator, you gave me the
wrong number." Of course, I did
no such thing. They dialed
incorrectly. I'd respond in my
sweetest voice, "I'mn so sorry.
Let me try it again for you." The
person's tone would change and
sound like mine. "Thank you so
much, operator."
Lesson 3 Be nice.
It was before the use of the
number 9-1-1, so we handled
emergencies as well. Wheh a lit-
tle child called saying his mom
fell and wouldn't talk, the oper-

learned the woman was okay.
Lesson 4 In an emergency,
keep cool, and trust God.
Once, the comedian, Buddy
Hackett, was calling his mom. It
was at night and we weren't that
busy. The operator who picked
up asked if we all could get on
the line. Hackett agreed and we
got to talk to him for a few min-
utes before his call was placed.
Lesson 5 Celebrities are just
folks.
Just about every week, I
worked a different shift cover-
ing ~for people on vacation. All
the supervisors and operators
were really nice to me, mother-
ly.
Lesson 6 Some women are
born mothers. Whether they
have children or not, they're
nurturers.
I continued working there part
time after school during my first
year of college. I loved that job.

our insurance and was sur-
prised to find numerous ways
to increase cash flow. The
clothing and grocery budgets
were actually easy to cut 10
percent; we obviously had
been overspending there.. I
swallowed my pride asked a
very tightfisted relative to
help with the monthly pay-
ments to the orthodontist, and
surprisingly he did. My two
oldest picked up on all this
and without being asked
found jobs to finance their
personal expenses. There was
plenty more done to get to the
overall 10 percent, but I won't
bore you with it.
.I don't mean for a minute to
suggest that your cost-cutting
exercise would be anything-
like mine. But I did find;
something out. Most of the
pain from the decisions that
had to be made was entirely
mental. No one suffered a loss
of nutrition, no one lost any
friends. We still had our
house and our family. We
even found a very cheap place
to stay for a week at the
beach, thanks to a co-worker
who knew we were in low-
budget mode and who knew
about this rental property.
Did I mention I quit smok-
ing? By doing that, I was able
to justify maintaining my
level of beer- expense. I wvas
so crabby for a while my fam-
ily probably -wished I had
done it the other way around..
By writing ~down the dollars
I was saving, with each deci-
sion, I was better able to see
what the overall impact of my
austerity program was, and I:
knew when there had been
enough cutting.
No one knows how long or-
how bad this recession will
be, but it will end and condi-
tions will start on an improv-
ing trend.

Forrest Steele is a financial and
operational business consultant.
in Lake Placid.


I asked your editor
what topics might be
of special interest,
and she suggested,
"anything that can be
encouraging for the
consumer during
these difficult times."
Although this is a
business column, we
are all consumers. So
as a consumer I can
share some views on


evaluating oneself
and others by how
Prosperous they
.appear to be.
3. Don't worry, I'm
not straying over
into a sermon. But I
am stating what I
ie think is a fact. Many
people have made
lisor themselves .miser-
t Steele able by tying their
happiness and self-
worth to their standard of liv-
ing.
A long time ago, I was
working in a financial institu-
tion during a period of very
high inflation and accompa-
nying~ strain on financial insti-
tutions. At salary review
time, I found that my raise
(along with everyone else's)
was a small fraction of the
true cost-of-living increase.
In real terms, as the econo-
mists say, I was being handed
a significant decrease in pur-
chasing power. This came at a
time when my family was
already living under a very
tight budget, with the oldest
'getting ready for college, and
the other two "needing" all
~these things that teenagers
need, not to inention dental
arid orthodontic expenses, etc.
You get the picture. I told my
boss, "Since you're not giving
me enough of an increase, I'm
going to give myself' an addi-
tional 10 percent raise." He
was .probably thinking I was
idiotic enough to quit and try
something new during uncer-
tain tilles, so I quickly told
him I was going to scour my
personal expense structure
and take out 10 percept. I was
convinced thiq could ~be done.
The first thing that went
was my major personal indul-
gence: a beautiful Oldsmobile
98 with leather seats, to be
replaced by a very used Ford
Pinto. My girls refused to ride
in it. I sacrificed our old tray-
el trailer. The next thing' I did
was to carefully go over all


John Edgar, vice-president
of manager-cash management
services- for Riverside, said
that means individuals or
groups with more than
$100,000 to protect now have
a simple, fail-safe way to do
so.
While the interest rate
offered will be a little lower
than on other type of
accounts, the peace of mind
provided by the absolute
guarantee lof safety, Edgar
said, of multi-million dollar
coverage is well worth the
investment, especially in
these unsettled times,

SEBRING -Riverside
Bank is announcing a new
product providing risk-free
savings with interest, and a
minimum of hassle.
The national program,
which Riverside has now
entered, is called the
Certificate of Deposit

CDARS .
Essentially, it means an
individual, business, commu-
nity group or charity may
merge all their funds into one
portfolio (up to $50 million).

SEBRING The Hansen
House has seen a lot of caring
with the community efforts
and donations to paint all the
girls' bedrooms, baths, hall-
way, entrance, living room
and dining room.
However, even with the
improvements the old carpet
looked really bad, according
to Darlene Watkin, American
Legion Unit 69 Children and
Youth chairman, whose auxil-
iary lit the fire to begin the
wonderful restoration.
The dream of new carpet
started with Eldridge Pollard
giving us a great.deal on car-
pet but all was needed was
money.
The American Legion Unit
69 kicked it off with a dona-
tion of $500, then came the
Women of St. James Catholic
Church in Thke Placid with
another $500. The Avon Par-k
Voiture 899 chipped in anoth-
er $300, thek American Legion


Using a computer network,
Riverside Bank can now
spread those funds into
accounts of $90,000 at differ-
ent banks all over the nation
- insuring all the money will
be protected by the Federal
Deposit Insurance
Corporation.
The individual CDs the
banks issue will all have the
same rate of return and matu-
rity timeline agreed to on
deposit, and it is Riverside
Bank that will combine the
paperwork into one statement,
for ease of oversight and

the topic. Also, many small
businesses find that their' for-
tunes and therefore their
state of mind are directly
correlated with the consumer,
But the~ assignment of being
encouraging is a tough one.
What can be encouraging in
today's picture?
First, let's acknowledge
that there is widespread pain
out there. I wish I knew what
to say to someone coping with
the loss of a job or with the
disappearance of the equity in
their home, all the while
being pinched by taxes ahd
the costs of health care and
gasoline prices,
But some of us are fortu-
nate enough so that we can
(almost) make ends meet,
evien if we have to' strain to so'.
But we worry all the time, and
we scramble to cover every-
thing. If you are in that cate-
gory I do have some thoughts
to share with you.
Here's a real challenge for
you, and it's where some real
rewards can be found. During
the last several years, did you
become a little too materialis-
~tic? Did you buy a car, a
house, furniture, clothing a
vacation with a nagging sense
in 'the back of your mind that
you needed to do this in order
to keep u? Did you have this
vague feeling that if you did-
n't increase your standard of
living that you we're somehow
deficient? If~your answer is,
"No," ~you may be kidding
yourself. Look around you. A
lot of our culture is built on

FAMILY FEATURES .

A mericans are expected to take more than 2 million trips this year.
That's 2 million opportunities to see and do new things and 2
milon ~opportunities to make~ the most of the newest travel-
friendly technology.
Today's technology is nothing to be intimidated by. Here are some
high-tech gadgets that are user-friendly, ultra-portable and simplify life
on te roa .
It's easier than ever to capture the magic of your trip with great pic-
tures and videos. If you like the ease of a point and shoot camnerar hur .
want more professional quality photos, you can find advanced digital
cameras, like a digital SLR with interchangeab~le, enses, that are easy
enough for anyone to use. For capturing all the action, a digital cam-
corder with a built-in hard disk drive can let you shoot hours and hour
of video and deliver beautiful photos. It also eliminates the need for lug-
ging along extra tapes~ or DVDs.
If you warit to venture off the main road to see the world's largest ball
of twine, but want to find your way back quickly, you'll need a personal
navigation system to keep you on track. The technology in today's GPS
devices can give you turn by turn directions, information on nearby
attractions and check for traffic or construction something your atlas
could never do.
When you're contest to be a passenger on your trip. and let someone
else play Christopher Columbus, spend the time catching up on your
reading. With an electronic book, you can bring dozens of books and
personal documents to read while in the air or on the road without
adding any bulk to your suitcase.
For those who have a teenager who can't.bear the thought of bemng
offline for more than a few hours, then a mobile Internet device is just
the solution. When the family stops for food or checks into the hotel,
your teenager can search for a Wi-Fi hotspot and get online to check
their social networking sites and surf the Web.
SNo matter what your travel needs, there is technology designed to
make the trek more pleasant or productive. Gadgets' with small foot.
prints and lots of capacity, like the Buyers Guide gadgets from Sony, are
ideal travel companions. For a list of other travel essentials, visit
www.sonystyle.com.







a Get Comfortable
Familiarize yourself with any new or infrequently used devices prior to your
trip. Browse the manual and practice using the device. Make sure you have
adequate memory and storage capabilities (or the ability to download images
or videos and clear the memory card) before you, leave home.
a Don't Forget to Accessorize
Be sure to bring all accessories, cases, chargers, cords, memory cards, etc.,
that you'll need on the road. For easy access, put all items for a particular
device into a sealed, clear plastic baggie and label appropriately.
m Bring a Backup
Wondering what your Web-dependent kids will do if Wi-Fi coverage is
sparse? Toss in a board game, puzzle or activity book. While you can't pack
for every contingency and don't want to negate the positive aspects of travel-
ing light with technology, having a few simple backups (in case of a lost,
damaged or uncharged device) can never hurt.

Pause and

Delayed..

but not


forgotten
No one likes to wait.
Whether it is in a line
at the store, in traffic, for
a meal in a restaurant -
we are an instant society
- wanting what we want
now.
That attitude, however,
fosters discontentment.
And discontentment may
cause us to over react;
push for what we want
even if it isn't best or
become impulsive in our
actions .
Waiting may be hard.
But, when it is seen from
God's perspective, it is a
time in which he is at
work in us.
I remember the years
that I was a sipgle mom
with my little boy. Oh,
how I longed for a mate
for me and a daddy for
him. My heart's cry was
heard by God more than
once a day.
As months turned to
years, it was difficult to
figure out why God had-
n't given me my heai-t's
desire.

sayA ta if w c reit
our ways to him he will
give us the desires of our
hearts. Hadn't I done just
that, I wondered?
Brit, in hindsight, I can
see that at that point in
my life I may have
thought I had. But, I real-
ly hadn't. Not completely
anyway.
In the intervening
years, my reqilest began
to change as I drew clos-
er to my Lord. I realized
that though I wantetl a
mate for me and a daddy
for my son, I wanted
something more. I began
longing for a partner with
whom I could serve God;
a man that would love
the Lord, be steadfast,
love my sort as his own
and hold the values I
held.
But, the Lord also
required my heart be
totally his. So, I yielded
as best I knew how this
heart's desire to him.
Seven years had passed
since I began to pray that
prayer. But, when he
chose to bl s'sme with

gave-me more than I had
hoped for. And in the
waiting lerne taltehis

has forgotten. But, that
he is waiting to be more
gracious to me than I can
imagine .
The Bible says in
Isaiah 30: 18, "Therefore
will the Lord wait, that
He may be gracious to
you blessed are all
those who wait for Him.
Times of waiting are
not passive. Activity still
abdunds both on God's
part and ours.
It's character building
time.. It develops patience
and trust. It prepares us
for his answer.
He remembers us.
Rest. Even in the delay.

AVON PARK Avon Park
Library Film Series will show
the movie "Arranged" at 2
p.m. Friday, April 25, in its
meeting room. "Arrariged"
was directed by Diane Crespo
and Stefan Schaefer in 2007,
and is 89 minutes in length.
Shared consternations make
for strange friendships. Rachel
and Nasira are both teachers at
a Brooklyn public school.,
They are the. products of
orthodox versions of their
respective religions. Even
though one may assume that


their religions may militate
against their friendship: one
being an orthodox Jew, the
other from a strict Moslem
family, the shared~ plight that
forges their friendship is root-
ed elsewhere.
Both are being subjected to
marriages arranged by their
families! 21st Century
America, educated young
women, surrounded by an
open-society and they have to
marry men they barely know!
The dramatic and comedic
possibilities are flagrant. This
is a film not to be missed.

tor of Buttonwood trees. Most

even eat from their hands. The only
place you can find the Florida scrub

habitat. Unfortunately, development
of the scrub areas has affected the
populations of scrub jays and unless
their habitat is protected, they may
be in danger of extinction.
The Florida scrub jay

JAY
Continued from 4B
1987.
Highlands County is so
unique. The scrub that exists
here is found no where else
in the world. The scrub jay
that lives here can be found
in no other state or country.
It is a wonderful opportunity
to be able to show this
unique creature to our chil
dren and future generations.
People from all over the
world travel to watch this
beautiful creature. Isn't it
ironic that the bird that trusts
people enough to eat from
their hands is threatened with
extinction by the same?
According to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
you ~can help in the following
ways:
1. Support establishment of
regional and local scrub jay

preserves. Protection of scrub
jay populations on manhged
tracts of optimal habitat is
the best means of protecting
this species.
2. Provide habitat for scrub
jays. Plant, protect, and culti-
vate patches of shrubby scrub
live oak, Chapman's oak,
myrtle oak, and scrub oak on
your property. Maaintain all of
your landscaping at a rnaxi-
mum of 10 feet in height if
you live on or near scrub jay
habitat.
3. Prptect scrub jays from-
your pets. Encourage passage
and strict enforcement of
leash lows for cats and dogs
in your community. Protect
areas being used by nesting

Fyffe selected

Crafter of Month

Spe'cial to the NewI-SunII
LAKE PLACID The
Cr~after of the Month for April
at the Caladium Arts and Crafts
Cooperative in Lake Placid is
Beverly Fyffe.
Fyffe comes fr-om
Springfield,' Ohio. She worked
in physical therapy for 37
years. After retirement four
years ago she moved here. Ten
years ago a friend talked her
into sewing. She loved it so
much and would have so much
pile up that she would have
craft shows with her friend.
She says that finding the
Caladium Arts and Crafts Store
as an outlet for her work was a
Godsend. She has many items
in the store such as vests, table
runners, aprons, towels, T-
shirts, pillows, placemats and
Christmas stockings, just to
name a few.
If you would like to see
Fyffe's work, it is displayed at
the Caladium Arts and Crafts
Store, 132 East Interlake Blvd.
in Lake Placid.
While you are there you
might like to check out the
many classes offered. The
Caladium Arts and Crafts Store
also has a Web site at caladium

Standing at horne five times
for the night, Simmons would
make it to first base three
times, hit a sac fly for an RBI
and pound one out of the park
in the fifth for a grand slam.
"It took some time for me
to get used to the mound. I
had to find a rhythm, and then
I settled down and used my
curve ball to keep them off
balance," said Simmons,
before adding with an ear-to-
ear smile. "I was shooting
dead red on that homer, it was
3-2 and I knew the fast ball
was coming."
"We didn't give up when it
was 3-0," he continued. "Last
game we gave up. We just
kept battling and knew we
could win this if we wanted
it ,
Not down yet, but fading
fast, Avon Park would try to
.rally, putting two con base, but
failed to bring them in during
their turn at bat in the fifth.
O~n to the top of the sixth,
Sebring broke the game wide
open and Avon Park would
pull Jackson after four got on
base, replacing him~ at the
mound with Red Devil finish-

iAVON PARK -The
:Sebring Blue Streaks pounded
]coulnty-rival Avon Park Friday
:night at Head Field, rolling
over the Red Devils late in the
game for a stunning 16-3 vic-
tory- .
Avon Park started off
strong, stalling the
Streaks in the first Sel
inning and leaving 1
thI-ee on base, and then
picked up three runs in
the bottom of the frame Avo'
while leaving just one 1
stranded. '
Sebrmng battled back,
picking up one run in the next
inning, and then the game
turned into a defensive strug-
gle until the top of the fourth.
Two solid base hits in the
top of the inning, followed by
a stand up double by Kyle
Long and an RBI brought
Avon park head coach Mort
Jackson to the mound to
relieve starter Dillon Runner-
Runner had just one run
and three hits on him until
then, but Sebring would bag
four runs off just three hits


during the inning before
Devils' relief pitcher Kyle
Jackson could put them away.
That's when the trouble
began for the Red Devils.
Held scoreless in the bot-
tom of the fourth, Avon Park
would give up four more runs
off of just one hit in the top of
the fifth allowing the Streaks
to push the score to 9-


ing 3. .

SStarting Sebring
pitcher Adam
Simmons, who walked
Pakjust two, picked up
nine strike outs aad
gave up three runs'
seemed to pickup
steam as the gaine wore on
and gained the rnajority of his
K's after the fourth.
"We swung the bat tonight,
but we had to battle back
some after our loss to Braden
River," Sebring head coach
Hoppy Rewis said. "Adam
pitched a good game for us.
He finally settled down after
the second inning and pitched
a pretty good one.">
But Simmons really came
through for the Streaks at the
plate*

AVON PARK It just was-
It't in the cards for the SFCC
Panthers Friday night as they
dropped a Southern
Conference game: against vis-
iting Broward, 7-3.
"They just outplayed us,"
head- coach Rick Hitt suc-
cinctly summed up. "(Matt)
Gilson is one of the better
pitchers in our confe~r-
ence and he pitched a B
great game tonight."
Gilson, a 6-folot, 5-
inch left hander withS
an awkward, low-
three-quarters delivery 1
kept the Panther
offense ~at bay with a
Sloping curve and a sneaky
fastball- *
SFCC's own lefty, Johnny
'Sedlock, was also effective in
spots, changing speeds with
his fastball, change-up and
curve to produce= some awk-
ward looking ~Seahawk
swmngs.
He struck out one in each
of the first three innings with
his only real mistake coming
in the second when Broward
first baseman Tito Espinosa
turned on a fastball and


yanked it over the left-field
fence.
The Panthers got that' run
right back, though, when
Steven Levine lead off with a
ducksnort single to center
'and, two outs later, came in
on a Brein Coppola single to
left.
The real rough spot came
in the fourth when a lead-off
rope down thle left-field line
~appeared to land to the
C left of the foul-line.
It was ruled fair.
I however, and the
CC Seahawks had a man
in scoring position,
SA ,walk .and an
U nfield single loaded
the bases, but Sedlock
almost got out of it by in~duc-
ing a pop up and a grounder
to third.
But~the, grounder was hit
just slowly enough to avoid
the double play, getting a run
in for a 2-1 Broward lead.
Moments later, Anthony
Mesa cracked a double to left
to score two more and the
lead jumped to 4-1.
SFCC scratched back in
the fifth when Jasper Brown

HIS TORY LESSON

20 YMRS AGO
April 15, 1988: The Red Devils completed a two-game streak over top-10 ranked teams with an 8-
0 win over fifth-ranked DeSoto. Avon Park, ranked second themselves, needed three runs in the bottom
of the seventh to top BishopVerotThursday, but wasted little time in taking over the game Friday against
the Buildogs. Clyde Pough tossed a two-hit shutout in the win between the District 2A-12 front-runners
and also belted a double and a home run to lead the offense, in helping avenge the Devils only district
loss of the season.
35 YEARS AGO

April 10, 1973: Despite swimming with the handicap of not having their own home pool, the Sebring
boys swim team broke a school record in the medley relay. Walker Emmett, backstroke, David Davis,
breaststroke, Jimmy Pollard, butterfly, and Jim Sabo, freestyle, combined to finish in 2:013.2, more than
one second faster than the previous record of 2:04r.5. In a meet win over Lake Bautley, Pollard netted
five first-place finishes, while on the girls side, Karen Rankin scored two first-place finishes and one sec-
ond.

"They out-pitched us,
played better defense, and
definitely out-hit us. A'nd
when you get out-pitched,
out-hit, and out-played on
defense, you're going to

The teams move on to close

Avon Park traveling to Lake

hosting McKeel Academy
Tuesday and heading to Port

Both the Streaks and Devils

onPith a red-hot 10-0 start,
the team stumbled to lose
seven straight before coming
back with the recent run.
One would hope it's not the
start of another backslide,
because the next loss for the
girls could spell the end.
That's because the Lady

Sebring will have to win

per.game and being held to

some Whnite Sox pitcher
named Gavin Floyd.
The team record as of
Saturday is 2-9, which is a
.182 winning percentage, and
'vith apologies to Tiger fan
and News-Sun correspondent
John Bedell and family, it
doesn't look like a~trip back

Speaking of toothless
Tigers, Mr. Eldrick Woods
isn't exactly chasing down
the competition in the
Masters (as I write this
Saturday afternoon he's a 2-
under par, six shots back-
no, wait, he just birdied to
move to 3-under par and five
shots back).
I guess we should learn not
to count him out on Saturday~,


when at any moment he
could~ pounce back with a run
of birdies that will stiffen up
the spines and shudder the
putters of those ahead of him.
And how can you not like
a guy who, when he hit a bad
shot on Friday, was heard to
utter "Woodrow!i"
That was assumedly in
place of the curse words he is
known to sometimes let loose
hith.
Kind of like my niece,
Emily, who when we were on
the Yeti roller coaster at
Disney two weeks ago, was,
according to her mom,
'swearing like a sailor.
Kind of -like manry baseball

What surprised you more,
the Detroit Tigers getting off
to such a horrendous start,
after their seemingly huge
offseason moves or that the
NHL playoffs are underway?
That age-old bid for the
Stanley Cup just kind of
snuck up on you, didn't they?
If this is the first you're
hearing of it, I'm sure you're
not alone.
I don't believe either of the
Florida teams made it to the
competition for the Cup and I
know the Blackhawks just
missed it, so any intrigue I
might have been able to feign
is all but lost.
The Tigers, however, are
an amazing thing to see.
Already with a powerful
offense from last year, they
pulled a heist in getting
Miguel Cabrera from the
Marlins to give them more
bats than you'd see flying out
of any cave Shaggy and

get him 37 wins this year.

listing sales associate with
$4,048,600 in total list vol-
ume and top producing sales
associate with $1,059,000 in
total sales volume for the first
quarter of 2008, which
includes Jan. I through March

"Century 21 Compton
Realty is pleased to recognize
Brenda with these honors.
Brenda is a highly motivated
agent with a great sphere of
influence that has helped her
reach' this wonderful achieve-
ment!" said Susan Compton,


and recording, transfer and inspec-
tion fees, can also be predicted
ahead of time by the buyer. Most
often pest and survey inspections,
although mecluded in the official
closing statement, are conducted
and paid for long before the closing
date. However, buyers should con-.
sider them as additional up-front
costs.
LTOR Some closing costs, such as
PS points~s" are fully tax-deductible
that tax year if you show proof of a
ompton separate lump sum payment. They
are not deductible~ in a few cases
when the loan is the result of rd-financing
rather than a home purchase. Application,
appraisal, documentation and broker fees
cannot be deducted.
Some states require payment of property
taxes at closing. In some instances, buyers
and sellers are asked to put money into an
escrow account that will cover any past and
future tax obligations. Be sure to check with
an attorney or real estate agent before the
closing to determine your property tax com-
mitments.
Also, be prepared to pay any assessments
if buying a condominium or into an associa-
tion-governed property. Fees for credit
reports, notary public seals and assumptions,.
which include the processing of official doc-
uments, may also arise.
Knowing what total closing costs will be
before starting your home search can help
you better understand what price range is
right for you. In the end, the process of clos-
ing on a mortgage will be easier than you
think, leaving more time to~plan for your
new home.


LAKE.PLACID Many are
taking1 advantage of this year's low
mortgage r-ates to purchase a home.
Pent up with excitement, many
families who have scrimped and -
saved for a down-payment, jump
for joy when the mortgage lender
finally approves their application.
But, they shOuLld realize that there's
it whole new set of expenses that -
must be covered before actua ly REAI
closing on thie sale. TI
New homeowners are often taken
aback by up-front closing costs Susan C
such as mortgage and title insur-
ance, attor-ney fees, recording fees and loan
points, which can run into the thousands of
dollars. But there is no need to be afraid of
these charges. With a little background on
their purpose and shrewd financial foresight,
c-losings caun be a breeze.
A lender's charge for processing the loan
can be determined at the beginning of your
buying process. Referred to as "points,"
these charges are expressed as a per~centlige
of the total loan. F~or instance, three charges
are equal to three: per-cent of the borrowed
amount. "Points" can also become a tool for
negotiation with the lender and seller. In a
buyer's market, h~ome sellers will often agree
to pay mortgage fees in order to close a deal.
Title insurance canl be a substantial
expense. The policy covers any financial set-
back caused by unforeseen defects in the
purchased property and home. The one-time
title fee. including search and examination,
averages ar-ound $525 for- a $100,000 home,
but at Cenitury 21 Compton Realty, 99 per-
cent of our sellers provide title insurance to

LowerMyBills.com, a free
online service that can help
consumers compare low rates
on monthly bills arid reduce
the cost of living.
Here is a quick guide to
financing choices:
SHome-equity loan': With
a home-equity loan you take
out one lump some of money
based- on the equity you
already have in your home.
The amount you borrow and
the interest rate' are fixed at
the start of the loan. These
loans typically last from 5 to
15 years.
SHome-equity line of
credit (HELOC): Like a cred-
it card, a home-equity line of
credit functions as an open
line of credit, only it is bor-
rowed against your house like
a sectind inortgage. The bene-
fits of using a home-equity
line of credit instelid of a
credit card are that the inter-
est rate for a home-equity line


lower than that of a credit
card and the interest you pay
is usually tax deductible..

SCash-out refinance: A
cash-out refinance allows you
to refinance your mortgage
for more than you currently
owe, leaving cash on the table
that you can put toward your
home improvements. UInlike a
home-equity line of credit or
home-equity loan, a cash-out
refinance does not require
taking on the additional bur-
den of a seconel loan.
Don't want to take the gam-
ble of borrowing against your
house? Don't despair.
"Homeowners that don't have
a lot of equity in their homes,
or don't want to tap into that
equity, may find that simply
refinancing their homes can
help offset home improve-
ment costs," says
Semprevivo.

nine states, will pay~ the prin-
cipal and interest of buyers'
loans for the first 12 months.
Unlike deferred payments, the
promotion effectively turns a
30-year mortgage into a 29-
year mortgage, and also elim-
inates the burden of two mort-
gage payments for homeown-
ers interested in taking advan-
tage of the buyers' market.
"This incentive literally
gives you a year to sell your
current home, without the
pressure of two mortgage pay-
ments or trying to quickly sell
a house in today's' market,"
says' Mary Schumacher-
Becker of Schumacher
Homes,
You'll still need to pay your
own taxes, insurance and
PMI, however. Visit
www.schumacherhomes.com
to learn more,
SFree upgrades are a
favorite incentive. From gran-
ite countertops and marble
baths to whirlpool tubs,
expanded decks or high-end
cabinetry, builders comp cost-
ly upgrades to sweeten the
deal for potential buyers.
Doing so actually costs them
little and can go a long way
towards cinching a sale, as
high-end, custom touches
continue to be popular with
new home buyers.
SSome developers are
offering lifestyle enhancing
incentives, such as free plas-
ma TVs, health club or golf
course memberships, prepaid
credit cards and home
improvement store gift cer-
tificates .
SPaying the buyers clos-
ing costs is also a popular
incentive, one that new home
builders have borrowed from
the sales arsenal of existing
home sellers.~ Since closing
costs can add up to several
thousand dollars, depending
on the cost of the house, loca-
tion and type of mortgage,
buyers find this incentive par-
ticularly attractive. Having
the builder pay the closing


costs saves the buyers from,
having to come up with the
cash or roll the amount into
their total mortgage cost.
SDeferred payments are
another sales tool developers
are using, although they can
be a mixed blessing for buy-
ers. While deferring payments
can allow buyers to avoid
paying two mortgages, inter-
est continues to accrue on the
end of the grace period, the
deferred amount will be added
on to the balance of the mort-
gage.
Other cash incentives
include builders paying
homeowners insurance-
polices or taxes for up to a
year.

Overall home sales and new
home sales continued to
decline in January 2008, cre-
ating even more competition
among builders for buyers'
loyalty. For buyers with good
credit, there are more oppor-
tunities than ever to get into
the custom home of their
dreams .

You've invested wisely and
paid down your sensible
mortgage. You're ready to
move up to a more luxurious
home. But the buyers' market
has you worried about getting
fair value and a speedy sale
for your current house. The
good news is, a custom-built
home could be the solution.
Custom-home builders -
who build on demand for a
specific buyer rather than
construct a home and then
seek a buyer are facing the
same challenges as other
home developers: a market
with excess inventory and a
dearth of qualified buyers. In
response, custom and other
home builders are offering
buyer incentives. In fact, 75
percent of all builders and
developers are offering incen-
tives, according to the
National Association of
Realtors' chief economist.
What does this mean for
buyers?
"There's never been a bet-

home ," says Paul
Schumacher, founder of cus-
tom-home builder
Schumacher Homes. "After
all, why buy an existing
house, and then have to worry
about changing this or redo-
ing that to fit your family's
needs? When you build a new
custom home, it will be exact-
ly what you want the first
time you walk in the front
door. The current real estate
market has opened up oppor-
tunities for buyers who might
not have been able to build a
custom home before."
From providing free
upgrades to actually paying
the first 12 months of your
mortgage, builders are
aggressively wooing buyers
across the country. If you're
in the market to.buy a house,
look to new and custom-home
builders to offer incentives
like these:

gage, and also eliminates the burden of
two mortgage payments for homeowners
interested in taking advantage of the I
buyers' market. -"This incentive literally.
gives you a year to sell your current
home, without the pressure of two mort-
gage payments or trying to~ quickly sell a
house in today's market," says Mary
Schumacher-Becker of Schumacher .-
Homes. You'll still need to pay your own
taxes, insurance and PMI, however. Visit

Custom-home builders who build
on demand for a specific buyer rather
than construct a home and then seek a
buyer are facing the same challenges
as other home developers: a market with
excess inventory and a dearth of quali-
fied buyers. In response, custom and
other home builders are offering buyer
incentives.
In fact, 75 percent of all builders and
developers are offering incentives,
according to the National Association of
Realtors' chief economist. "Tliere's never
been a better time to build a custom
home," says Paul Schumacher, founder


of custom-home builder Schumacher
Homes.

What is your fmnanaial
situation?
Before making a long-term
commitment to buying a
home, you need to be finan-
cially ready. Do you have
steady and -reliable income?
Do you know what you can
realistically afford?
Another thing to consider
is whether you save or make
other investments. For many
people who don't, a home
can be the "forced" savings
they need.

SWhether ~buying or renting
is the best move for you, be
sure to seek the advice of .a
real estate attorney before
making. your final decision.
Even rental contracts can
have fine print that may sur-
prise you, so it's always wise
to be prepared,

But if yu Y)lre looking at a
home solely as an invest-
ment, or if` you view homne
buying as rite of passage that
doesn't really interest you, -
then renting can make a lot
of` sense.

HOw long do you plan
t0 Stay in$your home?
Ideally, you should stay in
a home long enough to
recoup your buying costs. So,
ii: it's likely that you will
move in three years or less,
you might want to keep on
renting. Within that time-
frame, your house likely will
not have appreciated enough
S- especially in today's mar-
ket.-- to recover your initial
buying costs.
Also, if relocation may be
likely in your near future,
you could lose money if you
buy because you will have to
cover your1 mlor'tgage, in7sur-
ance and maintenance costs
until you sell.

HOW Clean is your -

is important to have a good
credit rating before applying
for a loan. If your credit is

rate when you decide to buy.
If your credit is good, and
you want to buy a house, you
should by all means proceed,
but know that getting a mort-
gage canl be a longer process
now, so plan accordingly.

Can yOu make, a down
payment?
While there is 100 percent
financing available, you are
more likely to get a more
favorable interest rate and
have greater peace of mind
-- if you can make a down
payment .
You'll also avoid having to
pay extra for private mort-
gage insurance, which most
lenders require if you put
