Wright OK with


$150k salary to


be administrator
Wants more .moving expenses,
longer severance package
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING - County administrator-select
Michael Wright is asking the commissioners to
re-visit several items in his proposed contract,
none of them really deal breakers, but he appears
satisfied with the $150,000 base salary.
"This agreement is substantially fine with
me," Wright said in an e-mail Wednesday to
Ross MacBeth, county attorney.
MacBeth is also a member of
the three-man contract negotiat-
ing committee formed Tuesday
that includes Commissioner Don
Bates and Tax Collector Charles
Bryan.
Wright The committee discussed the
contract issues Friday morning
via conference call.
The public meeting was monitored by
Commissioner Barbara Stewart, Lake Placid
councilman and Citrus Growers Association
executive director Ray Royce, Robert Garcia and
the media.
Wright asked for "basic" health insurance
coverage for his wife to the tune of $2,400 annu-
ally, a nine-month severance package, permis-
sion to teach on weekends and relocation-

Oakes traveling to

Republican National

Convention
By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID - While many will be'
watching September's Republican National
Convention on television, Highlands County
resident Chuck Oakes .will have a much better
view - he'll be there in person.
Oakes, along with two others from Florida's
Congressional District 16, was elected as a del-
egate to the convention by a committee of chair-
man from the district's eight counties.
Oakes owns the Southern Life Style assisted
living facility in Lake Placid, and he's no
stranger to Republican politics. He previously
served a stint as the chairman of the county
Republican Party, and currently serves as a state
committee man for Highlands County.
But Oakes also is no stranger to the conven-
tion itself. This year will be the second consec-
utive convention he attends as a delegate, and

Farewell


Service honors Sebring native killed in Iraq


News-Sun photos by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Sue Sawyer receives comfort following the celebratory service honoring her son Marcus Mathes Saturday morn-
ing. Mathes was killed in a mortar attack on April 28 while serving in Iraq. He was buried in Florida's National
Cemetery in Bushnell earlier in the week.


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christophe.ttuffley@newssun .com
SEBRING - It is cool in the small church, despite the fact
that it is already hot at 11 a.m. and the sanctuary is packed.
The atmosphere is at once respectful and hushed.
Up by the altar, a display, all red, white and blue, banks a
large portrait of Marcus Cale Mathes. The photograph is of a
young man with a contagious smile - a smile that reaches the
eyes, making them sparkle.
Mathes himself, of course, is not there. He lies now in
Florida's National Cemetery among other heroes, killed in
other wars.
His sacrifice came on April 28; when he and two fellow sol-
diers were killed by a mortar round while serving in Iraq.
But those who knew and loved him are not gathered to
grieve. Rather, they come to celebrate his release from this
world, and entrance into heaven.
That means it is a "tender but not tragic day," the pastor, Dr.
Kevin Ahrens, says, because Mathes had grown into a godly
man and was surely in His presence.
Mathes was killed doing work he loved and knew was
important, Ahrens reminded the gathering. There are few bet-.
ter ways to live a life.


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY


Four doves were released after the service. Three
represented the trinity - Father, Son and Holy
Ghost. The fourth represented Marcus Mathes' soul,
flying home to heaven.


Students treat mothers to special day


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tiuffley@news.com
SEBRING - Sun 'N Lake .Elementary
School, like other elementary schools in the
county, was alive with mothers Friday.
Even a father or two.
With the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test out of the way, and the calen-
dar unwinding into summer, there has been
time for the students to apply what they've
learned over the year and show off for mom.
Take Stacy Leaphart and Rachel Perez,
whose first-grade classes greeted their moms
with songs, poetry and arts and crafts.


The children all wrote about their mothers
- how beautiful they were, how tall, how
cherished.
For example, mothers were as tall as a tree,
a horse, a cow, a car, a door, a big brother, a
giraffe, and a baby giraffe.
Mothers were as good looking as a bird, a
rose, diamonds, a rainbow, a tree, a car, and
"me".
Mothers weighed, 10,000 pounds, or 25 or
.35 pounds. According to one child, his mother
weighted one pound.
And their children wouldn't trade their
mothers for diamonds, gold, money, a toy car,
or even a truck.


U.S. Senate
chaplain tells his
'improbable'

story at Florida
Hospital luncheon
By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
SEBRING - "My story is so
improbable," U.S. Senate
Chaplain and retired Navy Rear
Admiral Barry Black says -
and it's hard to argue otherwise.
Before Black, the Navy had
never had an admiral in its chap-
laincy corps. Before Black, the
U.S. Senate never had an
African-America chaplain, a
* Seventh-Day Adventist chap-
lain, or a chaplain who held the
same position in the military.
But .in 2003, history was
rewritten, as Black became the
62nd chaplain of the Senate.
And as he told an audience of
religious and civic leaders
Saturday afternoon at Florida
Hospital Heartland Division, his
work in the Senate requires him
to "sing the Lord's song in a
strange land."
Even early on there were
signs that Black would end up
where he is today. As an 8-year-
old growing up in inner-city
Baltimore, he started listening to
. a-record of two sermons that his
mother gave him. He listened to
them so much he' started to
memorize them, and as he later
learned, the preacher of those
two sermons was Peter
Marshall; a man who, as the
Senate's 57th chaplain, held the
job Black would later earn.
As chaplain, Black serves as a
pastor of "a 7,000-member con-
gregation," a congregation that
includes 100 Senators, their
staffs and their families. He
knows all three presidential can-
didates (he was even mentioned
in Barack's Obama's second
book), he receives hand-written
notes from the President, and he
leads the Senate in prayer before
its sessions.
Black does five'Bible studies
every week during the legisla-
tive session: One for Senators,
one for their spouses, one for

Learning the ropes to fulfill their hopes


New-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Tabitha Martinez holds her first born, three month old
daughter Alexis. 'When she first wakes up, she's always smil-
ing. She'll kick her hands and feet like she wants to walk,'
Martinez said, adding one of the things she had learned from
her Healthy Family's coach was the importance of paying
attention and interacting early.


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID - The
apartment is filled with the
savory aroma of dinner sim-
mering on the stove.
Tabitha Martinez, 22, and a
first time mom, is sitting at a
table, her 3-month-old daugh-
ter Alexis, asleep in the next
room.
Martinez is answering
questions about what it is like
being a new mom.
Had she felt prepared?
The parenting class in high
school hadn't been of any
help, Martinez answers. The
fake baby is nothing like a
real baby. "Put them down
and they just lie there," she
said. "Real babies make nois-
es and move all the time. (The
doll) was nothing like real
life."
Martinez dropped out of
school in the ninth grade.
She began waiting tables,
married Ricardo Martinez and
became pregnant.
Her doctor, D.M.
Upadhyaya, referred her to
Healthy Families, a new state
created program designed to
help new mothers and fathers
adapt to their roles by teach-
ing them how to make the
most of their children's earli-
est years.


Parenthood, while hard
work and filled with difficult
decisions, is also a joyful and
rewarding time right from the
beginning, Deborah Hadley
said. She is the program's
manager. She wants families
to remember it's possible,
even important, to experience
joy.
She hopes other parents,
especially those without
extended families and support
will get in touch with her
office.
Coaches are ready to help.
For example. Martinez
explained that she first
thought babies just mainly
slept, ate, and had to be
changed.
She was more scared than
surprised, after Alexis was
born and she found out how
much more was involved.
"I was afraid I'd hurt her,"
Martinez said. "I used to have
my mom watch, to be sure,
and then I learned.
Her coach, Sara Delapaz,
opened her mind . during
Delapaz's weekly visits.
"Sara told me to spend time
with (Alexis)," Martinez said.
"She said I wouldn't see it
now, but later, when she
learns how to talk and goes to
school, it will show."
By it, Martinez means the


stimulation of interaction and
the increased awareness that
leads to being more alert, and
quicker thinking.
Martinez pauses a' minute
than smiles, "Alexis loves to
play peek-a-boo," she says
with pride. "She laughs a lot
when you play with her. When
she first ,wakes up, she's
always smiling. She loves it
when you tickle her feet. She
is a moving person, kicking
her feet, playing with her
hands."
Delapaz is as proud of
Martinez who, in addition to
learning how to pay attention
to what is important, has just
completed an important goal,
getting a driver's license,
something she had been afraid
to do and put off.
"It's important to work with
the families before the chil-
dren start school," Delapaz
said. "We can make a differ-
ence before they start school.
We can talk about problems,
practice activities that help
with child development, and
social and emotional develop-
ment. It takes time though,
and it's an investment of
effort."
Delapaz says just about
every parent she works with
wants to learn from the pro-
gram, which is voluntary.


Hadley emphasized that
Healthy Families is designed
to help new- parents of any
age, or grandparents re-enter-
ing the parenting world, to do
their best. She encourages
mothers and dads to contact
her office.
Healthy Families can do
medical or mental health
referrals as well as teaching
the simple basics, like how to
change a diaper.
"Parents want to be good
parents," Hadley says,. "and
we want to help them be the
parents they want to be."
At the apartment, Alexis
has awakened. ' Martinez
brings her out, holding her
carefully, but comfortably, as
the infant stretches into wake-
fulness and smiles.
Any advise for young peo-
ple thinking about having a
baby Martinez is asked.
"Wait until you're pre-
pared," she answers, nuzzling
her daughter. "You think you
can do it. But when she wakes-
up crying and sick, it's hard.
Make sure you're prepared.
"Don't get me wrong," she
adds quickly, "I wouldn't
change a thing. But she's a
handful. I'm not going to lie."

Local mom named one of 'Best

.Moms in the Bay' and wins trip

to Bucs' training facility


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.conmt
SEBRING - Ronda
Simpson is a mother and a
huge Tampa Bay Buccaneers
fan. Those two worlds collid-
ed Thursday night, as she was
named one of the "Best
Moms in the Bay" and treated
to a special evening at the
Bucs' home offices.
The night became a reality
thanks to Ronda's husband,
Dave, who stumbled across
the contest at the Bucs' Web
site and wrote a 250-word
essay on why Ronda fit 'the
contest's label. After sending
the letter, Dave deleted it
(and Ronda never actually got
to see it), but it was good
enough to stand out amongst
a field of 600 essays in the
contest.
Ronda's oldest son, Jason,
Tomblin, 24, is currently in
Officer Candidate School
with the Army National
Guard, while her stepson
Johnathan Simpson, 23, just
came back from Afghanistan
and is currently stationed at
Fort Gordon, Ga. She also has
two daughters living here.
Jessie Tomblin, 17, is a cheer-
leader and honor student at

Avon Park High School,
while Jenna, 13, is on .the
Avon Park Middle School
volleyball team and is active
in the school's Future
Farmers of America program.
So with such a busy house,.
Thursday's event was a wel-
comed evening for Ronda,
her husband said.
" It, was quite a triple pd
quite a special occasion for
one of the best moms in the
world," Dave said.
The Simpsons were eating
dinner with friends when they
got the call telling them they
had been chosen in the con-
test. Ronda, who at that time
didn't know anything about
the contest, was skeptical -
so much so that she star-69ed
the number to make sure it
came from the Buccaneers
(luckily, it did).
Ronda's award was a din-
ner at One Buc Place, the
team's multi-million 'dollar
state-of-the-art training facil-
ity adjacent to Raymond
James Stadium. And after
dinner came a big surprise: a
rare tour of the facility.
And what a tour it was. The
Simpsons got to see the

Mother's Day remembrances from mom and daughter


News-Sun
Serving Highlands County since 1927


To Mom
Clarissa Williams
In honor of Mother's Day, May
11, this week I would like to share
with you my thoughts about my
mother.
What could one say about a
woman who has accomplished so
much in a lifetime? How could one
describe her? Mother, daughter, sis-
ter, friend, confidant and teacher -
the list is endless. I have had lots
of opportunities to look up to my
mom. She doesn't consider herself
a superwoman, but I do. She does
more in one day than most of us do
in week.
As a little girl I dreamed of the
day I would become a mother. J
would watch my mother make.
homemade biscuits, chicken and
dumplings and many other made-
with-love items for her family. I
would watch her get up, go to work
as a teacher and come home to take
care of her family, and help my
father get ready for his third shift
at the factory.
She was always working on
something. There were the many
projects at home, the gardening or
canning, sewing and crafts. She
was able to do all of this while
going back to school to complete
her doctorate in education.
My parents made sure that my
sister and I knew when it was time
to go to work you were to work
hard - giving me the work ethic I
have today. They also taught about
family time. I remember growing
up listening to my friends at school
See TO, page 6A


card using whatever I could find
to create a one-of-a kind message to my
mother. I still remember thinking about what
I would write on the card. The message
would usually be something about thankful-
ness for the mom I had or thanks for some-
thing she did that no one else could do.
When my mother passed away in 1990, I
didn't realize how important those cards had
been to my mother. In her safety deposit box
at the bank, among her important papers,
was one of the cards I had created for her
with a piece of lined notebook paper,
crayons, some scissors and glue. I had made
this card for her when I was 8 years old. It


carefully drawn and made a cut-
out figure of each of my family members
and had glued them in a close arrangement,
making the figures look as if they were all
hugging each other.
That's what Mother's Day was for me - a
special time for me to recognize the one that
did for me what I could not do for myself.
Needless to say, I had long forgotten the
card, but when I saw the card had been pre-
served in her most prized possessions, I felt
tears flowing down my face as I knew she
was no longer there to let her know how
much I appreciated her for what she had
See FROM, page 6A


Be sure to honor your mom today, she's probably earned it


Today is Mother's Day. If you are a
mom, I hope your family has planned to
do something nice for you, whether it's
taking you out to eat or serving you
breakfast in bed or something else. If you
aren't a mom, I hope you planned some-
thing nice for her. If you aren't a mom
and had no clue today was Mother's Day,
I hope you're reading this column early
enough in the day you can figure out
something nice to do for her.
Yeah, I know what some of you are
muttering ... Mother's Day is a made-up
holiday that benefits restaurants, florists,
and the greeting card company. Perhaps.
But is it such a bad idea to have at least
one day to be nice to the woman who is a
mom to you?
I admit that as a mom I'm somewhat
biased in this outlook. Let's face it,
sometimes the job feels thankless. Ask
the mom who's spent the day with one
kid screaming, one kid trying to strip and
run down the. street, and another kid ask-
ing "Why?" at the rate of twice a minute.
The thankless part is when her husband
comes home, looks around, and asks,
"What did you do all day?" in an accus-
ing tone.
Maybe you're stumped on what to get

for your mom. I can understand that. Gift
buying leaves some guys wandering
around clueless in stores, scratching their
heads and fingering their wallets. What
do you get your mom? And do you have
to spend a lot of money?
In answer to the last question, no.
Contrary to some of the jewelry adver-
tisements out there, the perfect Mother's
Day gift does not have to cause you to
take out a small loan, unless your gift is
to fill her car up with gas. So, how to
give Mom a nice Mother's Day?
Speaking of cars, you could clean hers,
Especially if part of the reason the car is
dirty that you've been eating in it and
that's why there are french fries under
the seat old enough to vote.
If you don't feel like working outside
how about the traditional fixing of break-
fast? A word of warning: if your mom's
not a morning person it's not a good idea
to wake her at 5:30 a.m. with a breakfast
tray, even if coffee's on it. Trust me, if
she's really not a morning person you'll
be wearing that hot liquid.


If you don't live with your mom, I
would say that a phone call is almost
mandatory. In this day and age I think
I'll let you get away with an e-mail if
you must, but a phone call is better.
Including a request for money in the
phone call is not a way to say "Happy
Mother's Day."
If you can't do anything else, just let
your mom know this one day that you
appreciate all she's done. The times she
was your on-call chauffeur, taking you
hither and yon. The times she put off
doing something she wanted to do
because you wanted to show her the pic-
ture you drew, or read you a story, or just
listen to you. And the time she loosened
the last knot on the apron strings and let
you step out into adulthood, longing to
hold you close a little longer but realiz-
ing she had, to let you grow.
Sometime today let your mother know
you love her and value her. Don't wait.
My mom's been gone eight.years, and I
still wish I could tell her I love her one
more time.

A tribute to mothers
Editor:
Mothers are really special
people. She is someone who
can guide us, love us in what-
ever we do. She is blessed
with patience and a wonderful
gentleness to help us in our
lives.
She watches over us so ten-
derly as children and then as
"older" children. It is not until
we become adults that we
Teally think about and appre-
ciate who mother really is.
Is your mother living
today?? If so, you are lucky,
so try and show her how won-
derful she is - not only on
Mothers Day but every day.
You do not have to go to the
store and buy her something,
just go up to her and tell her
you love her and give her a
hug and kiss (even helping
with the chores will show her
you care). Trust me, this will
mean a lot more to 'her that
have you touched her heart
with love. You will never
know how much that act will
mean until you become a
mother.
My mom has gone to a bet-
ter place and I will be eternal-
ly thankful for the good and
kind memories we share. You
might even thank your dad as
he chose that great lady to be
your mom.


Mother's Day started in
1907 and has been celebrated
ever since, so let us all be
kind to our mothers as they
are the only ones we will ever
have. May we honor and cher-
ish the true and precious
things in life and be blessed'
with memories of a mother's
love. Bless the influence of
their love, which still remains
with us today and every day.
If mom is with you today,
show her your love, and if she
is gone, be thankful for the
good memories.
Here is wishing all the
"mothers" who read this a
very, very happy and blessed
Mother's Day. Enjoy yourself.
God bless Mom and God
Bless America.

Deposit on lots not
returned

Editor:
This is in regards to a secu-
rity deposit that has not been
returned. On Aug. 15, 2006,
we gave a check to (a resort
area) to secure two lots. The
fee for two lots was paid until
and including the month of
March 2008.. At this time we
moved our vehicles to our lot
in Zolfo Springs.
When we reminded the


park managers about the secu-
rity deposit, they went back
through the books and noti-
fied the owner. After much
stalling the answer we
received from the owner was,
"See if you can collect your
money through the small
claims court."
Consequently, we are writ-
ing to you regarding the prob-
lem. Elderly people frequent-
ly reside or winter here. Being
older, they sometimes lose a
spouse or go home and decide
to remain there. Some may
not remember their deposits
or encounter our same prob-
lem.
As of this date we have not
received our deposit.

Project great thanks to
Florida friends
Dear Editor and Florida
Friends:
Thank you for printing my
letter earlier this year. I also
want to thank those answering
my letter requesting informa-
tion on your great state. I
want to ,thank all of you for
sending me information. I
learned a lot by doing this
project.
One of the projects I com-
pleted was a booklet called
"My State from A to Z!" For
example, for the letter "A" I
had to write an Advertisement
about your great state. For the
letter "P" I designed a Plaque
about a famous Person from
your state. When I got to the
letter "Z," I had to nominate
an animal from your state for
a National "Zoo" in
Washington D.C. I also did a
written research report on
your state. During our "States
Fair" I had a booth and dis-
played all of my information
to the other students in our
school as well as parents and
invited guests.


I have learned so much and
I could not have done it with-
out you! Again, I want to say,
"Thanks a bunch." I received
many neat things from your
state. I have attached a picture
of my display and me during
the "States Fair."

FDLE launches new domestic security alert

notification system for Florida businesses


Special to the News-Sun
Florida Department of Law Enforcement
Commissioner Gerald Bailey, in conjunction
with Florida's Regional Domestic Security
Task Forces and business partners, has
unveiled a new alert system designed to bol-
ster the ability of Florida's businesses to pro-
tect themselves and their communities against
potential threats.
BusinesSafe, a counter-terrorism program
created by FDLE, allows businesses statewide
to register to receive timely electronic alerts
on domestic security-related issues affecting
their industry.
"BusinesSafe creates a two-way communi-
cation highway that can be accessed and trav-
eled by every single business in Florida," said
Bailey. "With the click of a mouse, we can
directly connect with businesses ranging from
restaurants to retailers to service industry


providers."
The Web-based initiative also provides
businesses with sector specific safety tips that
highlight ways to identify suspicious activity
and better protect assets. Businesses are
encouraged to pass on unusual activity
through BusinesSafe's online reporting form.
To help reach the state's business commu-
nity, FDLE is working in conjunction with
private sector representatives on the state's
Regional Domestic Security Task Forces and
some of Florida's major business associa-
tions. FDLE is also partnering with the
Department of Business and Professional
Regulation and the Department of State.
"We are excited to partner with FDLE on
this program, which will allow our business
licensees to help keep Floridians safe," said
DBPR. Interim Secretary Chuck Drago.

had taken the time to make
those cards for her, even
though she deserved so much
more.
In my eyes, she was the
most beautiful woman. I
remember watching her brush
her hair and sometimes pin-
ning it back behind her ear
arid I would just think to
myself, "she is so beautiful."
I remember holding my
first baby daughter, Clarissa,


TO
Continued from 4A
talking about their wonderful
trips and vacations. My par-
ent's trips and vacations,
most of the time, was camp-
ing and fishing. As a teenag-
er, who worried too much
about appearances, camping
was not the luxurious vaca-
tion I dreamed of. Looking
back now I would never trade
those days of fishing and
camping. Actually getting to
hear about my parent's child-
hood and life milestones.
Toasting marshmallows, mak-
ing S'mores and learning to
fish as well as creating some
of the ties that now bind us as
a family are part of this trib-
ute to my mother.
Not only was she devoted
to my father, our family and
helping others, she was also
devoted to the principals of a
Christian home. I am grateful
for that. My mother taught
me that you should treat oth-
ers as you would want to be
treated. Always think through
a situation before reacting
and never "bum a bridge."
While writing this column
I have been reminiscing about
the past, and sharing stories
that only family could love.
Not only did my mother teach
me about love and caring, she
also taught me to never give
up on dreams and always
believe in yourself.
Yes, I have plenty of
opportunities to look up to
my mom, but I don't reflect
on her nearly enough. I usual-
ly don't think about how
powerful and inspiring she is.
I don't often stop. to think
about how many values she's
instilled in-me. How different
my life would be if I didn't
have this wonderful woman
to support me. She deserves
more praise than any of us
give her.
This past week my son,
Cameron, celebrated his sev-
enth birthday and next month
Bethany will be 13. I now
understand the aspirations my
mother and father held for my
sister and myself. I too, have
aspirations for my children. I
hope I am as good of a moth-
er to my children as my
mother has been.
Isn't it profound how we
change our perception of our
parents? I never really appre-
ciated to the fullest how
much my mother did for my
sister and me. Now I under-
stand why my parents tried to
instill so many things in my
upbringing to prepare me for
life.
Memories become life les-
sons, and daughters become
mothers, and mothers become
best friends. I am blessed to
have my mother in my life
and thank God for her every-
day.

and watching her tiny little
hands grasping in the air as if
she was trying to grab hold of
every moment at one time.
She seemed so tiny, but, I had
high expectations for my
daughter. I wanted her to have
the things I thought I had
missed out on when I grew
up, but, as she grew older and
I also grew older, I realized I
hadn't really missed out on
anything that was important.
My mother had inspired me to
learn and to seek a career that
I would enjoy. I also realized
that my daughter was differ-


ent from me because of her
own individual inspirations
and she didn't need what I
needed.
She did need the encour-
agement to keep grasping for
what she wanted and she
needed the freedom to be the
one that she became. I did not
want her to become a carbon
copy of me. I could see too
many barriers in that direc-
tion. I wanted her to be what
God wanted her to be. I think
she had to learn to take the
baby steps and then learn to
run. I just needed to be there


to keep saying, " I'm here -
I'll catch you if you fall."
Then I needed to be there to
say, " I knew you could do
it!"
I have two daughters, each
uniquely special to me, but
entirely different. I am thank-
ful for that. It gives me some-
thing to watch and is compa-
rable to a good book you just
don't want to stop reading.
I keep thinking I am getting
to the best part when along
comes the next chapter -
something even better than
the last. I think this is what


makes mothers want to stay
here - to see what else is
going to happen next and
those moments that make us
so proud. The first grasp with
the tiny fingers as a newborn
and the first kiss on the face
and thinking, "It just doesn't
get any better than this."
I thank God for choosing
me to be a mom as I have
always thought that was when
I was at my best - just being a
mom, I was doing what I was
most comfortable with. I
could mess up and not have to
worry about losing the job.


Children have a forgiving
attitude and even if they
sometimes looked at other
moms and "wished that was
my mom," they seemed to be
happy with me - the one they
had. Lots of peanut-butter and
jelly sandwich kisses, bou-
quets of weeds, but more than
anything, love - that's what
makes Mother's Day special.

"The nature of the legisla-

partisan labels at the door and
come to a prayer breakfast or

the third convention he will
be attending overall (he
attended the 1988 event).
The GOP's 2004 conven-
tion in New York was "won-
derful," Oakes said. "It's
very, very informative. We
get to meet and talk to the
Presidential candidate, who-
ever's going to be the nomi-
nee. That's what we do."
Oakes got the chance to
meet President George W..

transition in vocation."
"In the military you pro-
vide ministry in a pluralistic
religious setting, and the
Senate is similar," Black said.
"It's such an obvious fit."
Black related his experi-
ences at a luncheon Saturday
as part of Florida Hospital's

Oakes said he likes McCain
and thinks he makes a fine
nominee.
"I think he'll do an excel-
lent job," Oakes said. "He's a
very, very sincere man, a
great patriot. I think that's
what we need to have in our
country."
As one of more than 2,300
delegates, Oakes will vote on
the confirmation of the presi-

and the party platform.
According to state rules,
each Florida delegate is
pledged to three ballots for

mary. If, however unlikely it
may be, the voting stretches
to a fourth ballot, the dele-
gates would be released and


and be an example to others.
He also encouraged them to
constantly study and learn
more; "tuning your harp," as
he called it.
"Develop intellectual
thought, become a lifelong
student of your craft. Have a
passion," he urged the
crowd.. "Become a thinker,
not a mirror for the thoughts
of others. Live a life that will
cause men and women to glo-
rify God. If you do this, you
will be singing the Lord's
song, even in a strange land."

But it's not just national

will be in Orlando this week-
end for the state party meet-
ing representing Highlands
County, where he and his col-
leagues will be discussing
rules for the state committee
and interacting with the
Republican Congressional
candidates in the 2008 elec-

"All the people probably
running for office in the state
will be there schmoozing

The Republican National
Convention, which is being
held at St. Paul's XCel

for Sept. 1-4.

Florida Citrus Industry Annual Conference June 11-13


Special to the News-Sun
* LAKELAND - Florida's citrus growers and
industry representatives should register now for
the Florida Citrus Industry Annual Conference
from June 11-13 at the Hyatt Regency Coconut
Point Resort and Spa in Bonita Springs.
Register online at www.flcitrusmutual.com or
call (863) 682-1111.
The annual conference is a great venue for
all Florida citrus growers, the businesses they
support and other industry leaders to come
together to discuss the issues that impact
Florida citrus' future.
This year's conference will feature educa-
tional sessions titled: Greening: What Every
Grower Must Know. As part of the sessions, top
researchers from the University of Florida and
the U.S. Department of Agriculture will give an
overview of citrus canker and greening
research. Specifically, they will cover the HLB
pathogen, psyllid transmission, suppression
techniques, guava, SARS and transgenic plant
usage.


The keynote speaker at Wednesday's lunch
will be Coach Terry Bowden. Bowden, former
head coach at Auburn University and now a
popular television commentator, is known for
his entertaining, high energy presentations
sprinkled with humorous anecdotes. The
Citrus Industry Banquet will be on Thursday
night and the conference will host several
events designed to strengthen the voice of the
Florida citrus growers in Tallahassee and
Washington, D.C. The state and federal PAC
fundraisers include a fishing tournament, silent
and live auctions and a golf tournament at the
top rated Raptor Bay Golf Club. Expect a big
prize for any holes in one!
A special addition to this year's agenda will
be a celebration of Florida Citrus Mutual's 60th
birthday with a dinner, DJ and dancing on
Friday night. The party will include a program
where attendees will honor Mutual's history
and share a few laughs together,

Red Cross trains people




for many situations


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The
American Red Cross recog-
nizes Compression-Only CPR
as an acceptable alternative
for those who are unwilling,
unable, untrained or are no
longer able to perform full
CPR (cycles of chest com-
pressions and rescue breaths)
and, in some cases, a pre-
ferred method for bystanders
who witness an adult sudden-
ly collapse. *
Both the Red Cross and
American Heart Association
hope that Compression-Only
CPR will save lives by
encouraging bystanders who
witness the sudden collapse
of an adult to get involved,
have someone call 911 or the
local emergency number, and
then start performing chest
compressions until help
arrives or until the adult
shows obvious signs of life
(breathing and movement).
However, full CPR (cycles
of chest compressions and
rescue breaths) is still impor-
tant to learn. It is critical to
know what to do during an
emergency. Red Cross first
aid, CPR and AED training
can give people the skills and
the confidence to act.
Each year, roughly 1 mil-
lion people in the United
States suffer from .a sudden
cardiac arrest and almost half
will die as a result. Being able
to perform- CPR or use an
automated external defibrilla-
tor (AED) early on is crucial


in preventing brain damage
and will greatly increase a
victim's odds for survival.
An automated external
defibrillator, should be used as
soon as it becomes available,
regardless of whether or not
the sudden collapse was wit-
nessed. The device will not
cause additional harm to the
victim and will not defibril-
late unless a shockable
rhythm is detected.
In addition to learning how
to recognize cardiac emergen-
cies and how to perform CPR,
Red Cross course participants
learn what to do if someone is
choking or having a breathing
emergency,, how to care for
shock and more. Being able to
administer first aid and
CPR/AED during the first few
minutes of a medical emer-
gency is crucial to the sur-
vival and recovery of a victim
and allows someone to
become a vital first responder
when help is needed.
Compression-Only CPR
does not affect the curricula
or skills in current Red Cross
lay responder or professional
rescuer level courses. The fol-
lowing individuals will still
need to take training on full
CPR (chest compressions and
rescue breaths):
* Those who take CPR
training for certification to
meet State and Federal
requirements;
4 Lay responders in work-
places who have a duty to
respond; or


* Those responsible for
infants and children.
First aid and CPR/AED are
commonly taught to everyday
people who may be the only
ones able to respond during
the crucial first few minutes
of an accident or medical
emergency. Nearly everyone
is capable of learning and
becoming certified in first aid
and CPR/AED.
"The Red Cross wants peo-
ple to know that everyone has
the power to save a life. At
least one person in every
household and on every office
floor should get trained and
certified in first aid and
CPR/AED," Art Harriman,
director of the American Red
Cross in Highlands County,
said. "On average, it takes
emergency personnel 10-12
minutes to arrive on scene.
For someone who is choking
or has stopped breathing, that
may be too late. By learning
simple rescue skills, you can
go from a helpless bystander
to a person with the ability to
take control help someone
during an emergency."
To find out how you can
have the power to save a life,
contact the American Red
Cross in Highlands County at
386-4440, visit the chapter at
106 Medical Center Ave. in
Sebring, or e-mail hcarc@vis
tanet.net for more informa-
tion on the variety of health
and safety courses being
offered.

Dr. Deborah Milliken (second from left) and Michele Heston were recognized as South
Florida Community College Endowed Teaching Chairs recently during the SFCC Foundation,
Inc. Gala Land Annual Meeting. They were congratulated by Sam White (left), director,
Highlands County Health Facilities Authority; John Shoop, president, SFCC Foundation, Inc.
Board of Directors; and Dr. Norm Stephens, president, SFCC.


SFCC professors selected as Endowed Teaching Chairs


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK -Michele
Heston, director and profes-
sor, Nursing, and Dr. Deborah
Milliken, professor, Dental
Education, were recently
selected as Endowed
Teaching Chairs by South
Florida Community College's
faculty.
They will each receive a
$100,000 endowment, which
comes from $60,000 donated
by the Highlands County
Health Facilities Authority for
each endowed chair. Because
the Philip A. Benjamin
Academic Improvement Trust
Fund matches local donations
at $4 for every $6 raised
locally, HCHFA's donations
were each matched by
$40,000.
"The endowment is award-
ed over a period a two years,
half of which is to be used to
support a project related to
their profession and the other
half as an honorarium," said
Don Appelquist, executive
director, South Florida
Community College
Foundation Inc.
Heston and Milliken were
chosen because they 'go
beyond basic , classroom
requirements. "The Endowed
Chair awards allow instruc-


tors who have already proven
themselves as excellent edu-
cators to enhance their
instruction in the classroom
by advancing their own
knowledge in a specific sub-
ject," said Becky Sroda,
director, Allied Health.
The nominees were chosen
by their peers. After submit-
ting a final application
describing a project for which
they intended to use the
endowment, SFCC's Faculty
Council recommended the
winners to SFCC President
Dr. Norm Stephens. They
were formally presented with
their awards at the SFCC
Foundation Gala, April 26.
"We were very happy to
have HCHFA Chairman Sam
White present for the official
announcement at the gala."
said Appelquist. "It's because
. of the support of generous
individuals, or entities like
the Highlands County Health
Facilities Authority, that
SFCC is able to ... honor and
show our appreciation to the
very best of our outstanding
faculty."
"Dr. Milliken is a most
excellent instructor," said
Sroda. "She can take a very
complex medical model and
reduce it to a concept that is


understandable to beginning
students so they can begin to
organize pieces of informa-
tion that will later merge into
a complex whole."
Milliken's proposed project
is to attend a three-part con-
ference in association with
the release of a new text by
renown oral pathologists Dr.
Robert Langlais and Dr. Craig
Miller titled Color Atlas of
Common Oral Diseases. The
conference will provide up-
to-date information on the eti-
ology, manifestations, and
treatment of oral disease. By
integrating this new informa-
tion into her classroom, stu-
dents will be able to recog-
nize normal conditions and
their variations, recognize
abnormal conditions and
know when to refer patients to
a specialist, learn to write
professional descriptions of
lesions, and pair knowledge
with the use of a cancer
screening tool called. a
Velscope to detect oral cancer.
Heston's proposed project
is to explore the potential for
integrating and expanding
existing simulation technolo-
gy into nursing and allied
health programs' at the college
and in the health care commu-
nity at large.

'Wildlife Nannies' TV show films at

Arnold's Wildlife Rehabilitation Center
*~~~ 2- _ *"**-^ .ij~c iB^i^fli - .- J


Special to the News-Sun
OKEECHOBEE - Wildlife
Nannies television series
director Igor Hartmann and
crew were in town last week to
film 'segments at Arnold's
Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.
"It has been a wonderful
experience," said Sue Arnold,
owner of Arnold's Wildlife. "It
is obvious these men care a lot
about animals."
Hartmann, camera man
Frank Gutsche and camera
assistant Marcel Riedle
focused on the care of baby
animals such as fawns, pos-
sums and raccoons at
Arnold's, and witnessed the
release of a deer and several
barn owls back into their natu-
ral habitat.
"It was a pleasure filming at
Arnold's," said Hartmann.
"The women taking care of all
these different animals show a
lot of passion and give their
hearts to the animals."
Stars of the show included
Sue Arnold along with volun-
teers Merle Bass, primary
caretaker of Arnold's Butterfly
Haven; and dedicated animal
caretakers Angela Waldron,
Carolyn Kneip and young
Maggie Buccino.
Buccino, 12, who attends
sixth grade at Okeechobee's
Yearling Middle School,
played a key role in nearly all
of the film sessions. "Maggie
loves helping at Arnold's and
was thrilled to be part of the
filming," said her mother
Robin Buccino. "She was so
excited, she woke up that
morning even before I did."
The film crew was
impressed with Arnold's
Butterfly Haven from all van-
tage points, filming from a
helicopter and on foot in the
garden. "The butterfly garden
is a beauty," Hartmann said.
"A unique experience, some-
thing I have never seen before
in my life. It is colorful and
amazing, with Merle as a pas-
sionate gardener and caretak-


Arnold's volunteers and the
Wildlife Nannies film crew
took their lunch break at
Barracuda's Downtown
Cudaville restaurant. "We
enjoyed the dinner at this
American neighborhood
restaurant," Hartmann said.
The restaurant is owned by
Okeechobee resident Larry
McKane and located on
Highway 441, just a few min-
utes south of Potter Road,
which leads to Arnold's
Wildlife.
Wildlife Nannies is one of
the most popular productions
of Context TV GmbH of
Berlin, Germany. The compa-
ny produces high-quality, non-


fictional television content,
especially documentaries, for
the German and international
cable television market,
including the United States.
Context TV has working rela-
tionships with leading televi-
sion broadcasters such as the
Discovery Channel, ABC,
PBS, CNN, BBC and National
Geographic.
Arnold's is a non-profit,
educational-based wildlife
care facility that operates sole-
ly on donations. The center
serves Okeechobee and sur-
rounding counties, and is ded-.
icated to bringing people and
wildlife together to develop
awareness of the value of
Florida wildlife.

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop

The many

facets of

Mother's Day

Dad always gave my
Mom a white corsage and
me a pink corsage for
Mother's Day. White
because Mom's mother had
died. Pink to indicate my
mom was living.
The memory reminds me
that this can be a delightful
day for some; while for oth-
ers it can be an emotion-
filled day with thoughts of
someone we miss.
The jewel of motherhood
may reflect other emotions
as well.
A mother may have suf-
fered the loss of a son or
daughter; a young woman
may yearn for a child; but as
yet there is none. Adoptions
may be pending. Or physical
limitations or distance may
make being together impos-
sible.*
Whatever the personal sit-
uation in which one finds
oneself, the blessings of
motherhood have touched
our lives. And it is this-
blessing that I hope each
woman can focus on today.
- If we are living, our moth-
ers loved us enough to give
birth so that we might have
life. That in itself is a gift -
especially in our day and
age when abortion often
removes even that reality.,
So in whatever way possi-
ble, celebrate this day for its
inherent goodness. A look at
Psalm 139: 13, NIV, reminds
us of that goodness.
"For you created my
inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's
womb."
Think upon that as 'not
just a lovely verse of
Scripture; but as reality.
Then dwell on the intrica-
cies of all that being 'knit
together' implies. A look
alone at our heart can bog-
gle the mind - how it steadi-
ly beats and pumps our life-
blood through our veins. Or
the capacity we have for
movement in our joints and
limbs. Sight, hearing, smell,
taste, touch - senses we take
for granted - can never fully
be explained.
Then think for a moment
of 'thinking.' The brain,
they say, is like a computer.
But, can we truly understand
it?
Our emotions give us the
capacity to feel deeply, give
affection and respond to oth-
ers. That intangible quality
manifests itself in the tangi-
ble sound of laughter; the
wetness of tears; the erup-
tion of anger or other signs.
No wonder the Psalmist
continued in verses 14-16 by
saying, "I praise you
because I am fearfully and
wonderfully made; your
works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was
not hidden from you when I
was made in the secret place
... your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days
ordained for me were writ-
ten in your book before one
of them came to be."
Mother's Day. Let's cele-
brate all the day implies as
we see anew the gift of life
through our moms from our
loving God. Selah

Diversions


The small child extended
her wet hand that had been in
her mouth. In it was a
smashed cookie. She wanted
me to take some. The cookie
looked less than' appetizing.
But, I didn't want to hurt her
feelings or turn away from
her generosity.
So, I broke a small crumb
from the end and thanked her
profusely.
She happily continued
pushing it into her own wait-
ing lips; and, I chuckled as
we said our goodbyes and I
went on my way.
However, generosity isn't
likely to come naturally. It
has to be cultivated. It does-
n't take long for new parents
to come to realize that their
innocent, helpless infant is
quite demanding. His or her
needs must be met so that
peace reigns in the home.
Obviously, it is under-
standable. A tiny tummy can


only hold so much suste-
nance before it needs more in
a few short hours.
The 'plumbing' is also
small and requires repeat
performances. Those dirty
diapers are most uncomfort-
able and crying is often the
signal used to alert us of the
need (if our noses don't pick
it up first).
Then, as the child grows,
one of the first words he or
she learns is "mine." The
understandable and expected
demands of infancy that need
our care begin to change.
Almost without warning,
selfishness emerges naturally.
Sharing, kindness, gen-
erosity and affection need to
be taught and modeled for
the child and encouraged
continually. That is because
each one of us is born with a
sin nature. We quite naturally
look out for number one!
But, it is not the nature


that God wants us to have.
And that is why it is so
important to share with a
child how much God loves
him. To show him that God
wants to save him from hav-
ing a selfish heart. And the
way to do that is for the child
to ask Jesus to come in and
give him a new heart where
he will live and be with him
forever.
Little children are very
sensitive to God and are able
to trust him so easily - if we
will be faithful to open their
minds to him. Then teaching
them about sharing, kindness,
generosity and other virtues
are built on the appealing
foundation of truth.
I'm blessed by the gen-
erosity of the youngster in
John 6: 9a, NIV, who shared
his supper with Jesus and
saw it multiplied to feed five
thousand. I like to think that
he had been raised in a home


Generosity with a smile


* sy

* v 'A E


eAK KA

where God was honored and
where sharing cheerfully was
modeled. Otherwise, he may
have pouted and clung tightly
to his small basket of food.
Instead, we read, "Here is
a boy with five small barley
loaves and two small fish."
That signifies to me that
he willingly gave to Jesus
that which he had. And was
he ever rewarded! His smile
must have reached from ear
to ear. I hope to hear him tell
his story to me in heaven one
day.
Bible stories are such good
ways to teach virtues to chil-
dren. Generosity with a smile
is a good beginning.

feature written by News-Sun cor-
respondent Jan Merop.

SEBRING - Bea Vosburgh
will be honored by the Sebring
Friends of the Library at the
upcoming spring membership
luncheon. The luncheon is to

19, at the CaddyShack on
Golfview Road.
Vosburgh has been associat-
ed with the Sebring Friends for
more than 15 years, beginning
as a volunteer at the Sebring
Public Library. In addition to
holding several membership
chairs and other officer posi-

2002. She recently stepped
down after several years as
chairperson of the
Membership Committee.
All members and friends
are invited to the luncheon.

the Used Bookstore at 314-
0053. The cost is $12 per per-
son. At time of reservation,
please indicate luncheon
choice of a grilled chicken
sandwich, tuna or chicken
salad on a croissant, or spring

Last Music In The Park-of season set for Saturday night


It's hard
to believe
that anoth-
er season
has
already
passed out
here in the
Hammock.
During the
The Real busy fall
Florida and winter
Dorothy Harris thousands
of visitors came to enjoy the
natural surroundings and
activities. Since the summer
rains are rapidly approach-
ing, it's time to hold our last
"Music in the Park" concert
of the 2007/2008 season. The
wildly popular California Toe
Jam Band will be featured at
7 p.m. Saturday.
The band's name is defi-
nitely unusual, but the music
is familiar and judging from
their previous performances,

very popular! They will per-
form '50s, '60s, and '70s
Oldies tunes that can be
enjoyed by the whole family.
Lead singer and guitar player
Harry Havery says, "We are
a good time, fun time band."


Wondering if this would be
a good concert for the whole
family to enjoy? "Yes, we are
most certainly family-friend-
ly," says Harry.-
When asked about the *
peculiar name of the band, he


relates a surprising story.
Back when the band was
formed, it had no name.
Harry says, "We were seniors
in high school and were
preparing to play for home-
coming. We had no plans for
the band to last any longer
than that event, so no name
was ever chosen." The first
couple of songs they worked
on were Beach Boys tunes.
One of the original band
members had come with flip-
flops on and, "His feet were
nasty," remembered Harry.
When they finished kidding
him about it, they stuck the
California in front of toe jam
to end up with the California
Toe Jam Band.
Look's like the. joke's on
them though, because some
20-plus years later they are
' still, shall we say, stuck with
this unique name. The band's
See PARK, page 6B


By now, I should be back
"home" in New Brunswick,
Canada, the Lord willing. I
say "home" in quotes
because more and more
Sebring seems like home. As
I tell my friends, I like my
life here! And I am not look-
ing forward to the cooler
weather after basking in
Florida sunshine for nearly
six months.
Our 'little yellow house'
at 117 E. Center Ave. is such
a great place to visit and
shop. We are so grateful to
the many customers, friends
and patron's who continue to
donate books to our store so
our volunteers can get them
priced, on the shelves, and
sold so we, in turn, can aid
the Sebring Public Library
with extra programs for chil-
dren, physical items needed,
etc. that are not covered in
their county budget.
We are always seeking
new members - membership
forms are at the store - dues
are $10 a year. Lately we
have had some of these new
members also volunteer to
work at the store and we can
always use the extra help. We
realize that all members are
not able to work in the store
itself but their support is
much needed and appreciat-
ed.
The monthly board meet-
ing was. held at the Sebring
Library on April 21 and
chaired by vice-president
Nan Lyman. The board meet-
ings are always lively with
many good ideas and plans
emerging.
The last Gallery Walk
night for this season was
April 24 and we, of course,
participated in this fun event
in downtown Sebring. We
used the date as the begin-
ning of a month-long sale on
our cookbooks, self-help,
diet, exercise and health-
related books. These are all

Friends Of The Library

being sold at half of our
already-low price, a real bar-
gain.
Other interesting items in
the store are vintage "Sports
Illustrated" magazines dating
back to 1979. There are "spe-
cials" which are bagged and
priced individually, but most
of the others are 50 cents
each, another great bargain!
And we still have a few of
the vintage "Life" magazines
left. These older magazines
make great birthday and
anniversary gifts because of
the dates. It is fun to get a
magazine that coincides with
a special event in one's life.
As I travel north, I have
picked up some of the great
books on tape that are found
in the children's room. Most
of these audio tapes are
unabridged and read by easy-
to-listen-to voices, a very
welcome guest during long ,
drives. The three I have cho-
sen are "One Last Dance' by
Eileen Goudge, "At Home in
Mitford" by Jan Karon (this
is the first of that series) and
"The Book of Ruth" by Jane
Hamilton.
In the back room, there are
hundreds of great videos,
many of them adventure and
mystery types - what I call
"guy movies." There are also
documentaries, travel videos
and lighter fare as well as
some-popular Disney videos
in the children's room. The
video and audio tapes are all
$1 each, yet another great
bargain!
Thanks for your comments
on my column; we are hop-
ing to keep in touch this way
now and then. Thanks so
much to Romona Washington
for allowing me this space.
Happy Reading!

Melaleuca mulch a solution to invasive exotic problem


The melaleuca is a wonderful tree
when it's in Australia. In the land
down under it is often used as a
street tree or planted in public parks
and gardens. In addition, it is used
for windbreaks and a food source for
local insects and birds.
Throughout history, the
Aboriginies have utilized the
melaleuca in many ways. The young
leaves were chewed to alleviate
headaches and other health prob-
lems. In addition, the bark and inner
parts of the trunk have been used as
bandages, mats and material, cook-
ing wraps and linings in canoes. In
today's times, the oil from the tree is
used in health tonics, salves, and
medications. Unfortunately, in the
natural areas of Florida, it has
become a very problematic pest.
The plant was introduced to the
sunshine state in the early 20th cen-
tury for the purpose of drying out
swampy land and as ornamental gar-
den plants. The tree has certainly
done its share of drying up wetlands
and has invaded countless acres of
saw grass marshes, wet pine flat-
woods, cypress swamps and other
plant communities. "
It outcompetes the native vegeta-
tion because no native animal will


fteed on it. The
,t* ". tree may invade
, to the point that
it becomes a
*-*- monoculture and
will eventually
form an ecologi-
cal wasteland.
Wildlife that
NeWS depends on
From The Florida's vegeta-
tive diversity is
Watershed displaced or dies

Corine Burgess as a result of the
invasion of these
trees. Some of the species that have
already been affected include the
endangered Cape Sable seaside spar-
row, wood stork, red-cockaded
woodpecker and the Florida panther.
Other species that depend on these
valuable natural plant communities
for their survival also suffer as a
result of a lack of food, shelter and
habitat.
Florida has spent more than $35
million to control this pest. The eco-
nomic impact of these trees to recre-
ational lands results in the loss of
millions of dollars a year. They have.
displaced native vegetation on more
than 390,000 acres in the southern
part of Florida.


� --�


There is something that each one
of us can do to help in the fight
against the spread of.these invasive
exotic pests. We can buy melaleuca
mulch! The commercial mulch is
composted for 90 days before pack-
aging, which kills the seeds. So there
is no danger of spreading it by pur-
chasing the mulch. In addition, it is
said to be "some of the most envi-
ronmentally-friendly and termite-
resistant mulch on the market."
(USDA)
Perhaps one of the best benefits of
choosing melaleuca over cypress
mulch is that by doing so, thousands
of beautiful, native cypress trees will
be spared. The enormous amounts of
cypress mulch produced each year
threaten the survival of this native
Florida tree important for flood con-
trol, wildlife habitat and water puri-
ty. By purchasing alternative
mulches, we become part of the
solution, not part of the problem.
It seems that the melaleuca mulch
isn't a big seller mainly because
people are accustomed to using the
cypress mulch. But why not give
melaleuca a try? If each one of us
would choose melaleuca mulch in
the future, we would be saving
countless cypress trees, more


melaleuca trees would be harvested,
thereby reducing their population,
and we would still have beautiful
gardens.
"Forestry Resources created the
FloriMulch product melaleucaa
mulch) as a method of eliminating
the melaleuca tree and finding a
practical use for it. Melaleuca mulch
is an environmentally friendly alter-
native to cypress mulch. All
FloriMulch products feature an
endorsement from The Friends of the


Florida Everglades, leaders in the
crusade to save the National Park's
native environment, which is threat-
ened by the melaleuca tree.

line visit www.gomulch.com/index.

on your way, to a healthier garden!

You can't push your responsibilities off onto others, Capricorn


Aries (March 21-April 20) - Aries,
the rule of the week is that there are no
rules. You're allowed to be a little reck-
less as long as it doesn't interfere in
anyone else's business.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) - Staring
at the task at hand will not get it done,
Taurus. You have to set your sights on
completion and start to dig into all of
the things you need to get accom-
plished.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) - A sup-
posed missed opportunity is brought to
light again, Gemini. This time around,
pounce on it. Romantic endeavors will
have to wait until you have more quiet
time.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) - Cancer,
there's turmoil in your financial house.
One look at your checkbook can give a
clear indication of that. You may need
to call in a professional to iron it out.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) - Leo, there
are moments when you don't know in
* which direction you're heading. Grab a
friend who can serve as your persona,]
compass, providing the guidance you
need.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) - Virgo,


HOROSCOPES


running away from problems will not
make them disappear. But confronting
others in a hostile manner won't make
the situation better, either. Find a bal-
ance.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - There's
more to your abilities than you let oth-
ers see, Libra. Why are you holding
back? Let everyone in on the secret that
you can do much more than you're let-
ting on.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -
Scorpio, meandering down paths will
certainly get you to your destination in
time. But that's not usually your speed.
Resist the urge to run through life with-
out seeing the little things.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -
Sagittarius, you don't have to be on
edge to get the recognition you desire at
work. Know which people to
"schmooze," play it straight with co-
workers and your star will rise.


Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -
Capricorn, you can't push your respon-
sibilities off onto others. That routine
was worn thin a while ago. Step up to
the plate and tackle what is yours and
yours alone.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) -
Aquarius, some soul-searching yields
interesting results. You just may be
ready to turn your life topsy-turvy in a
quest to change many major aspects of
who you are.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) - Now
is the time to be frugal, Pisces. There
are many big expenses on the horizon.
Will you be ready for them when the
bills come in?

More is not necessarily better

when it comes to watering,


Just between you, me, and
the garden post ... more
water in your landscape isn't
necessarily better. Matter of
fact, most homeowners over
water their lawns, which can
damage or kill the lawn over
time. It is a major reason for
turf necrosis and that, my
friend, is just a polite way of
saying death by water.
How do you know if you
are over watering? Chances
are if you have one or more
of the following problems,
you are excessively watering
your lawn: shallow root sys-
tems; an increase in disease,
insect, and weed infestations;
reduction to drought toler-
ance; an increase in thatch
and excessive growth (which
means more mowing); and a
reduction to the turf's toler-
ance to shade and soil prob-
lems.
Our automatic irrigation
systems are just like our cof-
fee makers and irons. We set
them and forget them; these
modern conveniences will
turn on or off automatically
without another thought. The
problem is bur water require-
ments differ from week to
week and even seasonally
,and so, what we hoped would
save us time and money is
costing us dearly in
resources. Those resources
can be costing you money,
especially if you are metered.
To avoid overwatering, don't
water unless your turfgrass
show signs of needing water.
These signs are:
* If your lawn is under
water stress, the grass blade
will make an attempt to
reduce surface area by fold-
ing in half; this is an optimal
time to water
* If your lawn is under
water stress, it will have a
bluish grey cast to the leaf
blade
* If your lawn is under
water stress, your footprints
or lawn mower tracks will
remain long after you were
there
If you have shallow roots,
train your lawn to develop a
deeper root system. This will
get you through the mandat-
ed watering regulations.
How do you train your tur-
fgrass to have deeper roots?
There are two rules. If you
follow these rules you will
never have a problem with
shallow roots. One, irrigate
only when the grass shows
signs of needing water and
watering with the proper
amount. Two, mowing prop-
erly; mow at the highest rec-
ommended height for your
grass type. Believe it or not,

Your Florida
Yard
Dee Dee Jacobson
when you mow your lawn,
you are cutting off a source
of food production for that
blade of grass to feed the
root system. So by having
the lawn mower blade set
higher, you are giving the
blade of grass more of a food
source to sustain itself and
the root systern.
When I say to you the
proper amount of water, you
may be asking: What is the
proper amount of water? In
most of Florida soils, it is
somewhere between 1/2-inch
to 1-inch of water. Our sandy
soils will generally wet to a
depth of 12 inches for each
inch of water applied. This
will target the majority of the
root system and encourage
more rooting at lower depths.
Any more water than this is
just a waste of resources.
My question to you is:
How do you know how much
water you are using with
your current irrigation sys-
tem? If you don't know, you
are not alone; most everyone,
I ask that question to doesn't
know. That is part of the pre-
conditioning we get with our
irrigation systems; they are
set for a certain time and fre-
quency and it will automati-
cally turn off and on when
needed.
To find out how much
water you are using and how
long to run your irrigation
system, set out coffee cans or
tuna fish cans around the
perimeter of the sprinkler
system and see how long it
takes to fill them to the
desired depth. This will also
show you if you have any
clogs in your sprinkler heads.
Make sure your turfgrass is
run on a separate zone then
your ornamental plants and
remember that rain sensors
are now mandatory on all
new irrigation systems and
should be functional and in
place.
For more information on
irrigation systems and
drought tolerant plants call
the Extension office at 863-
402-6540 and ask for a
Master Gardener or the urban
horticulturist.

Dee Dee Jacobson is an urban
horticulturist with the Highlands
County Extension Office.

Class 4A Reaional Final Series


Streaks lose late lead, Raiders headed to Sarasota


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
and ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
FORT MYERS - Prom
night took a dour turn for the
Blue Streaks.
They would end up going
to their dance Saturday night,
but their bid for a
return spot in the 'big Rive
dance' of the final four
slipped out of their 1
hands in that after-
noon's 11-10 loss at
Riverdale in the tie-
breaker of the Class 4A 1
regional final.
With an 8-2 lead heading
into the bottom of the sixth,
Sebring could do little as the
previously stymied Raider
offense erupted for nine runs
off three pitchers to take an
11-8 lead.
The stuhned Streaks fought
back in their last at bat, with
Cody Higgins blasting a two-
run home run, his second of
the game, but that would be it
as the dream of a return trip to


Il


Ir
1I


Sarasota ended in the loss.
Offensively, Higgins would
do his part, getting on base
five times in five at bats, and
would secure three hits, with
his two homers and three RBI.
On the defense, Higgins
pitched five solid innings,
striking out seven, giv-
rdale ing up just three hits
and four runs before
1 being relieved by
game-one winner
ing Adam Simmons in the
top of the sixth.
"Both of us were out
of pitchers," said head
coach Hoppy Rewis. "I
am n6t fond of this new sys-
tem (of play-offs) at all, it
gives too many chances to get
someone hurt. Cody pitched
about 12 innings for us, and
did a good job, but he just
gave out. We had a chance to
put them away early, with the
bases loaded and we let them
slip. But that's baseball."
Other offensive standouts
for the game were senior Tony
Vazquez, whose first inning,


two-run tater got the Streaks
the early lead and sophomore
Jordan "Gus" Williams, who
went 3-for-4 with a double,
triple, homer, and four RBI.
"Gus had a great day, and
that's what we needed, he's
just a sophomore, but he
stepped up for us. He has had
a good season as well, but it's
gotta end somewhere."
The second game of the
series got away from the
Streaks early with the Raiders
plating four runs in the sec-
ond inning, including another
home run by Cory Williams,
this one a two-run shot, en
route to the 10-2 Riverdale
win.
As a means to be at full
strength for the tie-breaker,
starter Higgins was pulled
during the second and
replaced with Steven Fortner.
But the Riverdale bats had
sprung to life and would blast
two other home runs in the
nightcap as the lead piled up

Thanks mom


- a Happy Mother's Day to a


of you


I must have been about
four years old,
especially judging by my
excitement level.
I was wearing my baseball
player pajamas with my bat
in my hands. Those soft,
underhand tosses from my
mom weren't fooling me for
a minute.
I'd grip it and rip it every-
time. Those were the
golden days of my hitting
career.
Mom and sports just go
together.
Who could be a more loyal
fan than mom?
Who can be counted on to
drive to practice, the game or
the post-game trip to Dairy
Queen?
Who picks you up when
you are down and who keeps
you grounded when you win?
Mom is the best.
There have been some
great moms in sports.
Mallie McGriff Robinson


From the Front
Row...
John Bedell
was one terrific mom. She
knew all about tough times.
In 1919, thirty-year-old
Mallie was the wife of a
sharecropper in Cairo,
Georgia. She and her hus-
band had five children from
age 11 to six months.
Life was tough for an
African-American sharecrop-
per in the South, but it got a
lot tougher for Mallie.
Her husband abandoned
the family and ran off with
another woman. The


youngest of those five,chil-
dren was future baseball star
and African-American pio-
neer Jackie Robinson.
HIe wrote about his mom in
his autobiography titled "I
Never Had It Made."
"She decided then that she
would sell what little she had
and take her family out of the
South. She had a brother,
Burton, in California, and she
planned to take us there....As
I grew older, I often thought
about the courage it took for
- my mother to break away
from the South."
Jackie certainly had a
foundation for courage when
he agreed to be the first black
player in major league base-
ball.
His mom also gave him
another foundation.
Jackie's widow,
Rachel Robinson, described
her mother-in-law in "Jackie
Robinson: An Intimate
Portrait."


"I think a lot of her deter-
miination came from her reli-
gious beliefs. She just felt the
Lord was watching over her
and He would see to it that
she got what she needed. She
quietly sang His praises as
she moved from task to task."
Faith, courage and deter-
mination helped Mallie raise
those five children.
Sports fans know Jackie
broke baseball's color barrier
in 1947.
A few might also know
that Jackie's older brother
Mack won a silver medal in
the 1936 Olympics.
He finished right behind
legend Jessie Owens.
Janet Hill knew something
about sports.
She had married Calvin
Hill, the star running back of
the Dallas Cowboys in the
early 1970s.
She also knew determina-
tion and she knew what it
meant to be tough. She grew


up in New Orleans and went
on to attend Wellsely College
in Boston.
Janet had strong opinions
about raising her only child,
Grant.
The future NBA star
recalled his mom in his auto-
biography "Change the
Game."
"My mom's name is Janet,
but early on one of my friends
dubbed her "The General."
Everyone liked my mother
because she was very nice,
but everyone feared her too.
She could be tough and she
didn't care who you were."
During his high school
years, Hill recalled missing
curfew. When he came home
late, mom demanded the new
watch he was wearing - he
had recently recieved it as a
gift.
The General smashed the
watch on the kitchen counter
since her son was not using it.
After some weeks of fol-


lowing curfew, mom had the
watch repaired and returned
it to her son. Lesson learned.
Don't come home late and
don't cross your mom.
According to the documen-
tary film "Apple Pie: Raising
Champions," even Shaquille
O'Neal had to sign a
contract promising to wear
his helmet while riding his
motorcycle.
Mom outranked the Diesel.
Moms can inspire fear.
Mostly they inspire love.
They are there to root us
on and keep us going. They
are a gift from above.
So to my mom in
Michigan, thanks for that
game in the front yard and
thanks for all the the love and
support.
And to all the moms in
Highlands County, thanks for
the cheers, the fund-raisers
and the hot meals.
To all of you Happy
Mother's Day!

FORECLOSURE
Continued from 1E


your options and rights and
getting guidance immediately
from reliable experts. The
following offers some gener-
al information and resources
to help get you started.

Fiction: I shouldn't talk to
my lender.
Fact: Communicating with
your lender is crucial. Many
people don't talk to their
lenders because they are
embarrassed about being in
financial distress. But lenders
want to help borrowers keep
their homes because foreclo-
sure is expensive for them.
If you don't communicate
with your lender, you are
closing off important work-
out options they can offer to
help you keep your home -
and forcing them to start the
legal foreclosure process in
absence of any other solu-
tion.
It is important to contact
your lender as soon as possi-
ble; the further behind you
are on your payments, the
fewer options will be avail-
able.

Fiction: Once foreclosure
begins, I'll be thrown out of
my home immediately.
Fact: Foreclosure is a
legal process that takes an
average of six months in the
state of Florida. Here's how
it works:
The legal foreclosure
process begins with the bank
filing a lawsuit in court. As
is the case with any lawsuit,
you (the borrower) will be
sent a notice of the lawsuit
and given a period of time to
respond to it. This is when it
is essential to consult a real
estate attorney to learn more
about your specific options.
On the scheduled court
date, the court will issue an
order that will specify how
the foreclosure must take
place and set a sale date. You
have the right to pay off your
mortgage before the sale date
and have the foreclosure rul-
ing thrown out. This means
that you have a specific peri-
od of time to avoid foreclo-
sure by refinancing or selling
your home to pay off the
debt.
Filing for bankruptcy pro-
tection will delay this
process, but it has myriad
consequences. If you are
considering bankruptcy, it is
imperative to consult an
attorney to understand your
options and make the deci-
sion that's right for you and
your family.

Fiction: I have to face this
alone.
Fact: There are thousands
of Floridians facing foreclo-
sure and many resources that
car. help. An increasing num-
ber of resources are available
to help Floridians facing
foreclosure.
The U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban
Development has a list of
housing counseling agencies
that it sanctions as advisors
on foreclosure issues at
(www.hud.gov).
Another HUD-backed
counseling agency that focus-
es specifically on helping
consumers avoid foreclosures
is the Homeownership
Preservation Foundation,
which offers a free hotline to
call 24-hours a day, seven
days a week at 888-995-
HOPE.

Fiction: I should just sign
whatever the lender or advi-
sor tells me to sign. I don't
have any rights in this situa-
tion anyway.
Fact: Always have a real
estate attorney review any
documents you sign. You
always have rights, no matter
what financial position


ment that you don't fully
understand and never feel
pressured to sign something.

Fiction: All offers of help
are genuine.
Fact: Increasing foreclo-
sures has led to an increase
in foreclosure rescue scams.
Sadly, there are foreclosure
rescue scammers who lure
troubled homeowners with
promises to save their hous-
es, but instead, they steal
property and strip equity. The
National Consumer Law
Center (www.consumer
law.org) offers tips to help
avoid a scam.
It's also useful to check
whether a business is rep-
utable through the Better
Business Bureau or the
Department of Housing and
Urban Development.
If you think you've been
scammed, contact your
lawyer or the Attorney
General's office at 866-966-
7226 or www.myfloridale
gal.com.
The sooner you get help,
the higher your chances are
of recovering and. recouping.

Fiction: If I have an
Adjustable Rate Mortgage,
foreclosure is guaranteed.
Fact: You can take steps to
avoid foreclosure. A primary
culprit for the foreclosure
crisis is the resetting of
Adjustable Rate Mortgages,
or ARMs. These wildly pop-
ular loans gave borrowers
low introductory rates for
two or three years before
switching to variable interest
rates. Many of the ARMs' "'
low introductory rates expire
this year and next, leaving
borrowers with skyrocketing
mortgage payments.
If you have an ARM loan
that's about to reset, the most
important thing to do is get
help. A real estate attorney
can help you negotiate with
your lender and also can con-
nect you to other resources.
If you refinance, make sure
your attorney and your
accountant or financial advi-
sor review your new loan to
make sure it will be manage-
able.
Lenders are beginning to
work out refinancing options
for customers with ARM
loans. Countrywide
Financial, one of the-nation's
largest lenders, recently
announced that it will refi-
nance or modify up to $16
billion of ARMs through the
end of 2008, to help as many
as 82,000 borrowers stay in
their homes.

Fiction: I will never
recover from this.
Fact: Give your future a
lot of credit. If you lose your
home to foreclosure, don't let
the experience define who
you are and your future.
There are great non-profit
credit counseling agencies
out there that will take you
through the steps you need to
rebuild. (The National
Foundation for Credit
Counseling is a good place to
start looking.) As painful as
the experience is, you can
recover from foreclosure
with renewed strength and
soMlid advisors to help you be
more empowered with your
money.

Tips for insuring your home in a buyer's market


Slow home sales mean
more vacant houses are sitting
on the market - a situation
that can lead to increased
insurance risks. In March
2008, approximately 4 mil-
lion homes were for sale in
the United States, and in the
past year the median existing
home price has dropped
almost 8 percent, reports the
National Association of
Realtors. That could mean a
longer wait to sell your house.
If you move to a new home
before yours sells, the proper-
ty is at greater risk of damage
and you may not have ade-
quate insurance coverage.
Cindy Woodford and Jon
Farris of QBE Regional
Insurance offer advice to
ensure owners of vacant prop-
erties are protected.
"An empty house can
become a teen hangout or a
place for a homeless person to
sleep," says Woodford.
"Uninvited guests can lead to
damages like theft, fire or
vandalism. Mother Nature can
also be a foe, leading to flood-
ing or fire. We encourage
owners to take a few precau-
tions and protect their invest-
ment before they move out."

Double-check your
policy
The U.S. Census Bureau
reports a record 18.6 million
properties sat vacant during
the first quarter of 2008. On
average vacant homes take
longer to sell. Individual
homeowners' policies will
vary, but standard homeown-
ers insurance programs only
insure a vacant home for 60
days which might leave you
short on coverage.
"Talk to your independent
agent about your policy and
what else is available. Their
job is to help make sure

Make the most

of your tax

rebate: Reinvest

in your home

In an effort to jumpstart the
struggling economy, the fed-
eral government has
approved an economic stimu-
lus package that will send
rebate checks to qualifying
taxpayers, some as early as
May. Homeowners can use
this refund to invest in home
improvements that add value
in a difficult housing market.
Qualifying individual tax-
payers will get up to $600 in
rebates, working couples
$1,200 and those with chil-
dren an additional $300 per
child.
Investing these dollars in
home improvements, such as
replacing old leaky windows'
with newer, energy efficient
ones, can offer homeowners a
significant return on invest-
ment. Some experts believe
that replacement windows are
one of the best home
improvement investments
you can make in your home.
"Remodeling Magazine's"
S2007 Cost vs Value Report
estimates that a homeowner
may recoup 81 percent of the
cost of installing low mainte-
nance replacement windows
at resale. That means on an
$8,000 window replacement
project, homeowners may
recoup $6,480 at the time of
sale.
In addition, new energy
efficient windows can lower
heating and cooling bills,
improve a home's comfort
and aesthetics, and add long-
lasting value.
There are some important
things to keep in mind when
choosing new energy effi-
cient windows. Craig
Evanich, president of
Renewal by Andersen, sug-


gests homeowners look for
the ENERGY STAR label to
ensure energy efficiency.


you're covered," says Farris.
Some specialty insurance
companies will insure vacant
homes for longer time peri-
ods. Coverage may also be
available through some state-
run insurance plans, such as
Fair Access to Insurance
Requirements.
There are many precautions
to protect your home from
risks, notes Woodford. Before
you go consider doing the fol-
lowing:
* 0 Clean out gutters, trim
trees and check for potential
leaks.
* Install and test smoke
alarms that will alert a central
service center if smoke is
detected.
* Install a home security
system. Make sure-you have
adequate locks on windows
and doors, and they're
secured when leaving.
* Make the home look
lived in. Have an acquain-
tance bring in mail. Shovel
sidewalks and driveways or
cut the grass. Ask a neighbor
to park their car in the drive-
way. Install timers on lights
and leave window coverings
and some furniture in the
home.
* Winterize your home,
where applicable.


Protect your home
from the elements
If you live in a northern cli-
mate, protect your pipes from
freezing. A power outage and
loss of heat can result in burst
water pipes and flooding - a
common loss that can lead to
thousands of dollars in dam-
ages from water and mold.
"This is an easy procedure
that homeowners can do


themselves," says Farris.
"Turn off the main water
source and drain the pipes by
running water from the sink
located at the lowest point in
your house, such as on the
basement or ground level."
Set your home's thermostat
to at least 65 degrees. Ask a
trusted acquaintance to check
on your home occasionally to
ensure your heat is working.
Consider installing a heat or
moisture sensor that will noti-
fy a service center if the home
becomes too cold or damp.

Consider additional
measures
If you're still concerned
about your home's safety,
Woodford suggests that a
friend or relative live in the
home until it sells. If the
occupant doesn't pay rent,
your homeowners policy
could remain in effect, but
because individual homeown-
ers' policies vary be sure and
talk to your independent
insurance agent first.

In an article published April 13, "Exit Realty All Stars award
agents at banquet," the agency wishes to clarify its meaning of the
100K club, 200K club, and the 500K club.
Those in the 100K club have earned anywhere between
$100,000 and $199,999 in gross commissions since their hire date.
Those in the 200K club earned anywhere between $200,000 and
$499,999 in gross commissions since hire date. And those in the
500K club have earned anywhere between $500,000 and $999,999
in gross commissions since hire date.
Bob Trautman is closing in on the 500K mark with $453, 889.27

How to get a mortgage in today's market


Whether you're buying
your first home or looking
for a larger home, now may
be the time to act. Not only do
interest rates remain relative-
ly low, in many markets you
can get much more house for
your money than you could
just a few years ago.
But before you start look-
ing for your new home, you
will want to make sure your
finances are in order so you
can determine how much
home you can afford. There
are also benefits, such as sav-
ing money by qualifying for
lower interest rates, if you
make an effort to check your
credit score and put yourself
in a healthy financial posi-
tion.
"Buying a home is one of
the most important financial
transactions that a person will
make," says Frank Destra,
managing director and senior
vice president of national
sales for Ditech, one of the
nation's leading online mort-
gage lenders. "No matter
what the housing market is
experiencing, consumers
should always first look at
their own financial situation
and work with a lender to
determine the most appropri-
ate financing options avail-
able to them."
Here are some tips from
Destra for putting yourself in
a healthy financial position to
help yo.u get a mortgage in
today's market.
1. Check Your Credit - One
of the first steps in the home
financing process is to check
your credit report. An individ-
ual's credit score will have a
significant impact on their
mortgage loan approval and
interest rate. Credit scores
range from 500 to 850, but the
majority of scores are in the
600s and 700s. The higher the
score, the more options you
will have when you are look-
ing for mortgages (although


there are other factors lenders
will look at before they
approve a loan). Carefully
review your credit report and
immediately contact the cred-
it reporting bureaus to correct
any misinformation as you
will want your credit report to
be accurate by the time you
start applying for your mort-
gage.
2. Improve Your Credit
Score - Once you have had a
chance to review your credit,
you may want to look for
ways you can improve your
score. Paying off old debts
and paying your bills on time
are two easy ways to start
improving your credit score.
The amount of debt you
owe is also included in your
credit report, and having a
large amount of credit card
debt will lower your score. In
addition, the amount of exist-
ing debt you have plays a part
in how large a loan a lender is
willing to give you. Mortgage
lenders will look at the total
amount of debt you have and
compare it to your income.
This is one way lenders make
sure that you will still be able
to afford to pay your bills
when you add the additional
debt from a mortgage loan:
Paying your bills on time is
very important, especially if
you're thinking of buying a


new home. Lenders will be
able to see' your bill payment
history when they look at
your credit report. If you have
a pattern of making late pay-
ments, not only will it make
your credit score lower,
lenders will also be more
wary to lend you money.
Using your bank's online bill
pay or keeping track of your
bills in a notebook are two
easy ways to keep track of
your bills to help you pay on
time.
3. Save, Just A Little Bit
More - Of course it's impor-
tant to save money for the
down payment and closing
costs. .But there's more to
buying a home than figuring
out if you can pay a monthly
mortgage payment. Your costs
may be similar to renting, but
now you must be prepared to
maintain a home, too.
4. Get Pre-approved -
Before you start working with
a real estate agent, consider
contacting a mortgage lender
to obtain a pre-approval cred-
it decision. A loan officer will
review your financial status,
including your income, cash
flow and credit score, to help
you determine the maximum
monthly housing payment for
which you may be able to
qualify, and, if qualified,
"pre-approve" your mortgage.


Overall demand for housing continues upward


By EDWARD DAVIDSON
Century 21 Advanced All Service Realty, Inc.
It is difficult these days to find some good
news about the state of the real estate mar-
ket, or least to find it in the media.
Day after day, there are television reports
of foreclosures, bank write-downs, "recov-
ery plans," etc ... Unfortunately, that con-
stant media barrage has convinced some peo-
ple that the earth is no longer round, that real
estate is the worst investment to have, and
that Rome is burning all around us.
Well, while I admit that things have
slowed, let's put this into perspective.
The causes of the housing "bubble" are the
same as what we saw with dutch tulips, base-
ball cards, and Beanie Babies. The real estate
market raced upwards as more and more
people decided that speculating in real estate
was risk free. After all, how many of those.
"buy and fix" TV shows were on the air?
Well that caused a massive rush to purchase
real estate for the eventual flip. Like with
Beanie Babies, there is always one person


left holding the bag. It is those people who
caused the cascade of defaults.
However the fundamentals are still very
strong. Household formations are approxi-
mately 1.5 million annually. That means that
the overall demand for new housing increas-
es by 1,500,000 units per year. Pricing is
becoming more reasonable.
While activity in the past few years has
diminished, the underlying demand is still
-there and will be unleashed into the market.
The longer it takes, the more powerful the
surge. Already we are seeing signs of the
change.
There was a large upsurge in the January-
March period of sales in Highlands County.
In fact, units sold jumped 116 percent for
single family residences and 112 percent for
all residential in that period.
The market is turning and so buyers
should not wait for the national media to
"discover" the recovery. It is already here.

Clowning

around on

the Florida

Trail

By LAURELTHARPE
Special to Senior Scene
Spreading smiles, love and
laughter along the Florida
Trail. That is what I started
doing Jan. 3.
My name is Laurel Tharpe
and I live in Sebring. Some
call me "Pinky," which is my
clown name, and some call
me "Mountain Laurel," which
was my Appalachian Trail
name. I hiked the AT in the
year 2(000. I am a member of
Toby's Clown Alley, Toby
The Clown Foundation Inc.,
both in Lake Placid, and The
Florida Trail Association.
I love to clown and I love
to backpack. Combining these
two loves I hope to be a "good
will ambassador" for clown-
ing and for promoting the
mission of clowning - spread-
ing smiles, love and laughter.
The Florida Trail is one of
eight National Scenic Trails
in the United States. It begins
in the Big Cypress National
Preserve near Miami and ends
at Gulf Islands National
Seashore near Pensacola. It is
about 1,400 miles long.
My hiking partner is Donna
Stowe from Melbourne. She
is a seasonal backpacker and
bicyclist. When we hike the
trail, Donna will be 72 years
old and I will be 69. We will
be passing out red sponge
clown noses along the trail to
create a bit of laughter and
fun, while at the same time
showing and telling folks the
value of our foundation.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Laurel
'Pinky' Tharpe and her hik-
ing partner, Donna Stowe,
took off in January to hike
the Florida National Scenic
Trail. Before she left, she
submitted the story at left;
here is her story at the com-
pletion of the hike.
By LAUREL 'PINKY' THARPE
Special to Senior Scene
Backpacking the Florida
National Scenic Trail was an
"adventure into the
unknown." Every day had an
adventure, as we never knew
what was up ahead, around
the corner, who we'd meet, or
what we'd meet.
My partner, Donna Stowe
and I hiked approximately
1,200 miles and it took us
three months and one week.
The trail starts ' in the
Everglades and 'ends at Fort
Pickens at the western end of
the Panhandle.
The young man in the pic-
ture is from a Boy Scout troop
we met in the forest at a
campsite. His troop was back-
packing the area, and Donna
and I had stopped to get some
water. I only had one red nose
in my pack at the time and
this scout was volunteered by
his friends to wear it. He was
a good sport.
It was fun passing out red
noses to people we'd meet,
along the way. I always told a
corny joke after I gave them
the nose. I also handed out a
small flyer about Toby the
Clown Foundation and told
them to come visit us. I had
500 noses to pass out, but
only gave away around 200-
250 as the trail is very isolat-
ed in most areas and we did
not come into contact with


Courtesy photo

man on the Florida Trail, whom they presented a big red
clown nose to.


many people.
In Bristol, we hiked past a
library where Donna wanted
to send out e-mails to her
friends and family. I went in
with her and we had such a
good time with the librarians.
I gave them all noses and told
jokes. There was one 5-year-
dld in there too, so I gave him
a nose. His name is Nathan.
He was so excited when I
gave it to him and he said,
"Oh, I had one of these one
time when I went to the cir-
cus." He quickly opened it
and put it on and I got his pic-
ture.
The trail goes through
many wildlife management
areas, state and national
forests and on some roads and
dikes. We walked along
rivers, creeks, through forests
and tromped through too
many swamps. One day we
saw three Cottonmouths in


the swamp with us as we were
tromping through. We got
their pictures. Sometimes
we'd be in the forest for six
days without seeing anyone -
especially in Appalachicola
National Forest. We'd pitch
our tents, in the forests, near
forest roads on U.S. high-
ways, in people's back yards,
under cell phone towers,
along power lines and any-
place we could find at ihe end
of each day. Sometimes we
even camped in a designated
campsite, which was the best.
In Eglin AFB we camped in
its forest and that night they
had "war games." Needless to
say we were a bit scared!
Thank you to all my fellow
clowns for your support arid
prayers. We felt it all the way
and nothing bad ever hap-
pened to us. Every day held a
new and interesting experi-
ence and we were safe.

Clowning


around for


hygiene

By SHIRLEY "Joy" GLENN
and LOLLY "Pinky" THARPE
Special to Senior Scene
We love to clown, bringing
smiles, love.and laughter to
young children; we especially
want to entertain them and at
the same time provide a little
education. Often, children
will remember important
information better if it is done
in an "outlandish" method. So
here we are teach oral hygiene
and hand washing in an out-
landish way. This is a new
project for us, but we think it
could be expanded into teach-
ing all facets of health and
safety.
We do this presentation for
daycare centers and hope to
enlarge it for the kindergarten
children also. We volunteer
our service to promote "the
art of clowning" for Toby The
Clown Foundation Inc. and
for our Toby's Clown Alley.
Anyone who wanted to use
this idea as a business project
could do very well, changing
the "format" every year.
Our props are all silly and
come in a very large "Big
Story Bag." The children like
to see what is going to be
pulled out of that bag.
For the oral presentation
we use such props as a huge
picture of a happy clown with
his mouth wide open and full
of big white teeth. We use his
mouth to demonstrate what
can happen if "Happy Hal"
does not brush his teeth. We
have some big, ugly "cavity
bugs," which we plant in his
mouth and ask the children
how to get rid of them.
In the process of trying to
find the right brush we bring
out a paint brush, toilet brush
and finally a "tooth" brush,
which is oversized.
After brushing Happy Hal's
teeth weleave one cavity bag

in place and introduce dental
floss to finish the job using a
large jump rope as a silly
prop.
To continue the oral presen-
tation we introduce "Mr.
Chatters," who is just a red
sock puppet with the wind-up
chattering teeth ,and bulging
eyes. We use him to demon-
strate good brushing of the
teeth, gums and tongue. We
use him to help teach good
snacks and bad snacks -
always brushing his teeth
after the sugary snacks.
Of course, we wind him up
a couple times during the
presentation as the children
love to hear and watch him.
When it comes to the hand
washing presentation we pur-
posely forget which "body
part" we are going to talk
about next. We pull a large
thumb out of the bag and then
a large foot. Finally, we
remember the hands and bring
out a picture of a very dirty
hand with a sad face.
The children participate in
telling us what is needed to
clean the hands. We all, go
through the monons of Wash-

water to the tune bf "Twinkle,
Twinkle, Little Star," bringing
out a picture of a smiling
clean hand. We then talk
about why it is so important to
keep our hands clean and,
-.hen are the most important
"times to wash them.


Next we invite one of the
children to come forward to
help with our magic trick. We
ask the teacher to choose a
helper. We get out the "faith-
ful change bag" and take a
very dirty and sad hand and
put it in the change bag along
with soap and water. Then
with a few chosen magic
words the helper pulls out a
clean and happy hand.
We make a big deal out of
the helper and give him or her
an "Official Clown Assistant"
* sticker.
To end the presentations we
try to re-emphasize the impor-
tant points. We give the
teacher a handout from Crest
Toothpaste. It is a coloring
page with hidden good snacks
to find. The children can do
these in class or take home.
We also give out a little cer-
tificate card from the clowns
indicating their participation.
This is a fun project and we
hope it will grow to become a
regular yearly presentation at
the schools. Each year we can
change the "Big Story Bag" to
include all aspects of hygiene.
and safety. . '

Devise your own



exercise program


All the authorities on
health are in agreement that
exercise is essential ...and I
agree. Many years ago, I
found a program I liked and
could stick to. In the interest
of the community's well-
being, I will share it with
you. Here are some ways you
can burn calories.
The figures for the calories
burned are from the Chinese
Foreign Service Medical
Bulletin.

MONDAY: Beat around
the bush. 175
Jump to conclusions. 100
Climb the walls. 150
Wade through the morning
paper. 50

WEDNESDAY: Drag my
heels. 100
Push my luck. 50
Make mountains out of
molehills. 275
Hit the nail on the head.
772 (This figure is correct
when you account for the
jumping up and down and the
screaming out loud when
your finger gets in the way.

FRIDAY: Bend over back-
wards. 75
Jump on the Band Wagon.
250
Run around in circles. 300.

As my body became toned
up, I added some of my own
exercises. I began to throw
my weight around, which
was intensified by dragging
my heels. When it became
too difficult to keep it up by
myself, I joined a group.
Some of us went on a
witch hunt.
One of our activities was
power play. We became so
proficient we could put our
foot in our mouth! At the end
of the trip we down played-
i; .hings. But we enjoyed it so


Pearl Carter


much we ended with a sales
pitch. ,
From a renowned Chinese
Professor, the group learned
other exercises: paint your
wagon; adding fuel -to the
fire; open a can of worms;
start the ball rolling; toot
your horn; pick up pieces.
One of the best ones was
climbing the ladder of suc-
cess. One of the worst was
wading through paper work.
It became the group's
credo to invent a new exer-
cise each week. One week it
was "kneel in prayer." We
really felt good after that
one. Another week it was
"pullout all stops."
You can tell I am really
enthusiastic about this pro-
gram.
I welcome you to all join
me by making suggestions of
your own "exercises" Send
them to me at the News-Sun,
and I will publish your
ingenious ideas.
Unfortunately, since I
wrote the above, the group
dissolved when we "ate
crow" and got so sick that
they "went over the edge!"

The touching story of 'Forever First'


Many of you know
I like to write fiction.
Here's a story I'd
like to share with
you.
Forever First
Marcus finished
his sandwich and ran
out the door.
"Don't say good-
bye," his mother
yelled.


Susan
La Croce


"See you later, Mama."
He slammed the door and
jumped the four steps to the
sidewalk.
Avery, waiting in front of
his house, waved to Marcus
signaling a race to the comer.
The teenagers had been doing
this as long as anyone could
remember. Avery reached the
stop sign at the corner first
and announced, "The winner
and still No. 1, Avery Pais."
Marcus and Avery had
known each other all their
lives. They were both born
on Carlton Avenue the same
day, less than an.hour apart.
Actually, Avery was born in
the Brooklyn Hospital and
Marcus in a cab on the way
there.
Avery had a thing about
being first. First born, he
walked first, talked first,
played ball first, made the
honor roll first, smoked first.
The good things and the bad
things: he did them first. .
Today would be different,
Marcus thought as they
walked toward Myrtle
Avenue to the subway stop.
Whatever we do I'm doing it
first.
They headed downtown to
Macy's for the Memorial Day
sale where sneakers were
half price. In front of the
store they were stopped by a
guy in uniform. Good look-
ing and friendly, he had the

gift of gab. And
when he said, "Who
wants to be first?"
"Me," Marcus
blurted.
"I like your enthu-
siasm," the guy said.
"Count me in,"
Avery said.
And that's how my
brother Marcus
described the day he


and his friend Avery joined
the Marines. It wasn't
planned. Never discussed at
home.
My mother started crying
when Marcus told her. Angry,
she smacked him upside the
head. She sat down in the
kitchen and pounded her fists
on the table. "Mama, it'll be
OK," Marcus said. Morn
stopped pounding. She shook
her head, and blew out a long
breath like a deflating bal-
loon. She rested her head on
the table and became quiet.
Soon, the bell rang. It was
Avery's mother dragging him
by the ear. They looked like
Mutt and Jeff lurching down
the hallway. His mom is so
short and he's so tall. Seeing
Avery all bent over, his mom
tugging him around as
though he were little, made
me laugh.
I thought Mom would kill
me but instead everyone
seemed to relax. Avery's
mom let go of his ear. He
crossed both eyes and wig-
gled his head making me
laugh more.
The boys were excited
about joining the Marines.
"We're going to be men you
can be proud of," my brother
said. The boys never had sec-
ond thoughts and seemed
happy that they both decided
to enlist. Soon, they were
fighting in Iraq.


Everyday, I raced home
from school to see if Marcus
sent me a letter.
One day when I reached
the front door, I heard some-
one sobbing. They were
awful wailing cries and I
realized they weren't made
by one person. I fumbled
with the key. By the time I
opened the door and saw
Mom and Mrs. Pais, I knew
we'd lost them.
It happened in the northern
city of Kirkuk. Marcus and
Avery and two other soldiers
were killed when a roadside
bomb exploded near their
Humvee.
When I was all cried out, I
went to my room to be alone.
They understood. I took out
his last letter, just a note.
Hey, Sissy,
Are you still reading all
those books and getting A's?
We're OK. Sticking close.
Thick as thieves, as always.
But remember, I was the first
enlisted - not Avery!
Look after Mama, little
one.
Love,
Marcus
In that instance, I won-
dered who passed first, but
what did that matter?
I only wished I could tell
Marcus he was always first
with me - my only brother,
who listened better than any-
one else. The one who
bought me my first doll, took
me to my first movie. The
one who made me feel spe-
cial.
My No. I hero now and
forever.

Helping grandchildren financially prepare for college


Want to involve your grandchildren in
paying for college? Get them saving while
they're still young, says grandparents.com
money expert, Bambi Holzer. "If children
grow up understanding money as a finite
resource, they'll understand the need to man-
age it properly," says Holzer.
At around age 5, children begin to under-
stand how money works. That's a good time
to start teaching them about saving. They'll
start to catch on when, for example, they see
how one week's allowance may not cover the
cost of a coveted toy. Use these and other
similar "teachable moments" to initiate dis-
cussions about pocketing the change for the
future.
While it can be tough, not opening your
wallet every time your grandchild says "I
want that!" teaches a similar lesson. Let
them discover, as you likely did growing up,
that saving for what they want is not only
fiscally responsible, but psychologically
gratifying.
How does it relate to a six-figure educa-
tion? According to Holzer, who has 25 years
of financial experience, "Students who are
aware of the high cost of college and who
assume some responsibility for paying for it
(if even the smallest portion), will assign
more value to their education and get more


out of it." She says it all starts with teaching
money basics, as early as possible.
Holzer offers these tips to grandparents
interested in getting their grandchildren
involved in college savings:

* Help them. start a pint-size college fund.
Make it accessible to your grandchild and
make sure he/she contributes to it. Track the
account's growth together, and keep it sepa-
rate from ones their parents establish. For a
small child it could be a piggy bank or a jar.
For an older grandchild, try a passbook sav-
ings account.
* Show them the money.
Kids love to do chores for pay - sweep the
floor, rake leaves, carry groceries, feed the
pets. Put your grandkids on your payroll.
* Talk about scholarships.
Explain that students who excel in high
school may be given scholarships that pay
for part or all of their college education.
* Consider the cost side.
Students who have a vested interest in
paying for college may be more likely to
consider the total cost of college when decid-
ing where to go, making options like state
schools, community college, and reducing
credit hours through high school AP credit
more palatable.

Goodyear Tire & Rubber retirees come together in Sebring


By CATHY J. SCHREIMA
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Humorist and
story teller Mark Twain once
wrote, "When I was younger I
could remember anything
whether it happened or not."'
Twelve retirees of the
Goodyear Tire & Rubber
Company in St. Marys, Ohio,
recently gathered in a Florida
restaurant to talk about the
good old days. Just like Twain
they told stories about things
they remembered whether
they happened or not.
Sebring is located in
Highlands County, in the cen-
tral part of the state. It is actu-
ally named after an Ohio town
and has been a home away
from home for many residents
of Mercer and Auglaize
County for several years.
Visit any winter and read
the News-Sun and you'll find
notices for Ohio, Indiana and
Michigan get-togethers. The
Celina High School class of
1951 also has a winter
reunion.
But the first Wednesday of
March at Homer's Buffet the
Goodyear Retirees nreet for
lunch at the popular restaurant
with another Ohio connection.
It is owned by Homer Duff,
who also owned the former
Duff's Smorgasbord in Piqua.
Jay Miller, of Celina, said
the Florida Goodyear Retiree
luncheon started around 1990.
"We started in Lake Placid'
at a Main Street restaurant.
Then we moved to the Circle.
We started as a breakfast
meeting and outgrew every
place we met. It's just a lot of
fun to get together and remi-
nisce," Miller said.
Miller, who lives in Sebring
six months and Celina the
other six, was vice president
of the United Rubber Workers
Local Union 200 for seven
years. In 1947 he was hired
into Goodyear for 67 cents an
hour. He worked 37 years
retiring in 1984.
"I worked in pliofilm but

Retirees of the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company met for a reunion luncheon on March 5 at
Homer's Buffet in Sebring, Florida. Those attending (not in order) were: Jay Miller, Ruth
Henschen, Elden 'Red' Stolzenburg, Carol McDonald, Murlin Doseck, Paul Schott, Lois Axe,
Eddy Blossom, Nick Schmidt, Jerry DeArmitt, Tom Grunden, Ray Maher, Kenny Grimm,
Nick Gillis, Mike Miller and.Janell Sullivan.


mostly I worked in plastics. It
was always a pretty good
place to work. I enjoyed
working out there. They were
always good to us. At the time
we worked there we probably
didn't think it was that good
of place to work ... but it
was," Miller said.
He said the employee sum-
mer picnics were always a lot
of fun and noted the company,
which was sold last year, has
also been good to its retirees.
Pliofilm, developed in 1934
by the Goodyear Tire &
Rubber Company, was a rub-
ber-based plastic.used to pro-_
tect equipment, especially
weapons, from water and sand
during the D-Day landings.
Paul .and June Schott of
New Bremen also attended
the reunion. The couple has
been married 58 years. They
have four children, 12 grand-
children and seven great-
grandchildren. June retired
from the Crown Equipment
Company in New Bremen.
Paul worked at Goodyear for
43 years. He spent 3 1/2 years


in World War II serving under
General George Patton.
Goodyear gave him credit
toward his retirement for the
time he served in the 7th
Armored Division in the U. S.
Army.
"I did a little bit of every-
thing at Goodyear. You'd be
hard pressed to find any better
place to work. I hated to see
them sell last year it was a
good company," said Schott,
who winters in Lake Placid.
Ruth Henschen of *St.
Marys and Sebring retired
after 42 years and three
months.
"I started at 35 cents an
hour and I could finally save
some money. I worked five
years before I got one week's
vacation. I saw a lot of
changes over the years and I
met a lot of good people," she
said.
Ruth and her husband Will
have been married nearly 61
years and he is a retired tool
and die maker from the for-
mer Stamco Plant in New
Bremen.


Elden "Red" Stolenzburg
hired into the Goodyear plant
in 1947 at a rate of 67 cents
per hour. He worked in the
Bambury tank department
downstairs and said he was on
the receiving end of rubber
coming off the conveyer belt.
"I put it on the skids," he said.
Stolenzburg, a writer, was
known as Red or the Bambury
Reporter.
"I used to write poetry
about things that happened to
people in the plant. I wrote
several of them more or less
just to have fun picking on
people," Red said.
"One guy came, in with a
boat behind his vehicle. After
third shift he planned to go
fishing the next morning.
Somebody backed it in the
water, the boat, the motor and
the car. It took two wreckers
to get it out and they pulled
off the front bumper. I titled
it, "I went fishing with a
wrecker hook," he laughed.
Another poem was about a
guy sawing wood and he got
his chain saw stuck up it a


tree. "It was just silly stuff.
We had fun. My poetry sure
got a lot of attention around
there and then I got into seri-
ous writing and got a lot of
stuff published," said .Red
who retired in 1989.
Red and his wife Mary
were good friends with John
and Carol McDonald. John
worked at the plant 40 years
and Carol worked as a punch
press operator for 30 years.
After John and Mary both
died, Red and Carol main-
tained their friendship. They
winter at Leisure Acres in
Sebring and return to their St.
Marys homes in the spring
and summer months. Red
wrote a wonderfully romantic
poem for Carol and has had
his writings published nation-
wide.
Tom Grunden, who is affil-
iated with the St. Marys
American Legion. Post -323
and his wife Georgia were
vacationing in Orlando for
three weeks. When they
learned about the reunion they
made the 86 mile drive south
to attend.
Tom worked at Goodyear
for 33 years in the Bambury
rubber department and retired
in 1996. "It was a good bunch
of people to work with. There
was a lot of camaraderie. It
was one of those places where
you almost looked forward to
going to work," he said.
Nick Schmidt, whose dad
Wally, owns Wally's Auto
Sales in St. Marys, retired
from Goodyear on Oct.. 1,
2002 after 35 1/2 years. Nick
worked in the lab where they
tested the rubber. "In 1968 I
quit a job making $1.50 an
hour and hired in at $2.83 an
hour. I cleared $82 on my first
pay check and remember
thinking if I could just clear
$100 that would really be
something," he said.
Kenny Grimm also attend-
ed the luncheon and said he
retired from the plant just like
his parents, Carl and Florence


Grimm. Both are deceased.
"My dad was the oldest
Goodyear retiree at one time.
He lived 32 years after he
retired in 1966. My dad was
98 when he passed away in
1995." Grimm, who retired in
2001 after 34 years, said.
"Goodyear was a great place
to work. I was involved in the
union. I made a lot of good
friends and what I miss most
is the people."
The afternoon was spent
visiting, telling stories and
enjoying the many taste-
tempting delicacies that
Homer's has to offer.
Other Goodyear retirees
attending the reunion were
Lois Axe, Murlin Doseck,
Eddy Blossom, Jerry
DeArmitt, Ray Maher, Nick
Gillis, Mike Miller and Janell
Sullivan.
Last year -about 30 people
attended the event. Miller,
who organizes the luncheon
said some retirees who usual-
ly attend were not there this
year.
"They live near Bradenton,
Sarasota and Lakeland.
Maybe the cost of gas kept
them away this year or maybe
because Easter came early,"
Miller said. "I see some of
these guys all the time. Five
of us live in Leisure Acres."
Spouses and friends from
the Auglaize/Mercer County
area attending the luncheon
were Imogene Roser, Will
Henschen, Marilyn Doseck,
June Schott, Rose Butts, Kay
(Miller) Maher, Bud and Barb
Fitzgerald, Carol DeArmitt,
Howard and Joan Coats, Jack
Sullivan and this Sidney Daily
News reporter.
The reunion is always the
first Wednesday in March at
Homer's Buffet, 1000 Sebring
Square.

A message about



grand parenting from



Arnold Palmer

Yes, I am a grandparent, and the relationship I have with my

grandkids brings me the greatest joy in life! For me, staying

included in their lives is the key. Since children's voices

are smaller and harder to hear, I didn't want my hearing

to be an issue with them. With the help of my Destiny

digital hearing instruments, I've rediscovered the joy

in the little things, the day-to-day sounds that I had

been missing. If you are a grandparent, or think


you have trouble hearing,

do yourself a favor and

accept this offer.
