Sebring council

Council appears ready to

make next step toward

Phase II of fire assessment
SEBRING - The Sebring City Council
will have some decisions to make Tuesday on
several issues discussed at length at a recent
The implementation of a fire assessment,
the appointment of a new city administrator
and the appointment of non-residents to the
city's Planning and Zoning Commission will
'all be addressed Tuesday, as will a number of
additional items.
Judging by the discussions of the board at
its May 7 workshop, the council appears ready
-to move forward with Phase II of a non-ad
valorem fire assessment, but with the signifi-
cant change of adding non-agricultural vacant
land to the eligible taxable properties. Adding
the land category would slightly drop the
assessment rate for residential properties and
nursing homes.
If the assessment is assessed at 100 percent
of the fire department's funding level (an
amount the council is unlikely to approve, at
least initially), the residential rate would drop
from $261 to $258 per dwelling unit, while
the rate from nursing homes would drop from
$2.03 per square foot to $1.99. The rate for
non-agricultural vacant land would be $29.49
per acre.
Council members have repeatedly said* a
fire assessment would be approved only if it
was coupled with a reduction in the city's
millage rate.
The amount of the fee paid by each building
category is based on how many fire calls those
types of properties.make based on historical
figures. The proportion paid by each category
would stay the same no matter how much of
the fire department's budget the council
chooses to fund from the assessment, although
the exact dollar amount would change. ,
If the council chooses to' proceed with
Phase Two of the. assessment, a months-long

Elberta Crate and employees still at an impasse

AVON PARK - Forty workers at
the Elberta Crate and Box Company
unanimously voted to reject the com-
pany's latest contract offer Thursday
Workers currently make $7.80 an
hour. The company's offer was to
raise the wage to $8.04 an hour.
Workers were upset for two rea-

Workers want more pay, better conditions

First, $8.04 an hour still means
full-time workers with families of
three or more would remain under the
federal poverty guidelines. And sec-

have safer work conditions and hot
water in their bathrooms. There is no
excuse for treating these Florida
workers worse than those in Georgia.

needs more


June training

session scheduled
SEBRING - The number of
volunteers in the Highlands
County Guardian ad Litem pro-
gram has increased over the past
few months, but more are need-
The 40 volunteers in the coun-
ty office are currently covering
80 percent of the cases, a
marked increase from the 50
percent figure of a year ago. But
more volunteers are being
sought, especially in lieu of
recent state budget cuts.
The role of a guardian ad
litem is to serve as a neutral
party appointed by the court to
serve as a voice for a child dur-
ing the judicial process. In a
majority of the cases that reach
the ad litem office, the children
involved have been taken out of
their homes because of issues
with abuse or neglect.
The guardian ad litem has the
important task of meeting with
the child at least once a month
and learning about his or her
needs, so that an accurate report
can be given to the judge about
the child's individual situation.
Avon Park resident Evelyn
Subklew is one of the new vol-
unteers who have come into the
program over the past year.
She spent her career with the
Department of Children and
Families ,in Connecticut, and
after her first year of living in

to get back in the realm of help-
ing kids again.

Teens, one armed with knife, arrested for burglary

One also charged with possession of marijuana

AVON PARK - Two tattooed youths
were arrested late Thursday for robbery and
criminal mischief after they allegedly broke
into a North Florida Avenue home.
Clarence Brown, 17, and Julian Alamia,
16, both of Avon Park, were spotted breaking
into a house by a neighbor, the arrest report
When an officer from the Avon Park Police
Department arrived, he spotted Brown and
Alamia walking through the yard of the
house reportedly being broken into.
While frisking Brown, the officer alleged-

ly discovered a 12-inch kitchen knife in his
front pocket.
Asking Brown what the knife was used
for, he replied "as a weapon," the report said.
Brown was handcuffed and put in the back
of a patrol car, as he allegedly cursed at the
officer, kicked his feet and resisted the offi-
cer's efforts.
While talking with Alamia, the officer
allegedly noticed a plastic bag containing a
green leafy plant fall from the inside of his
- The substance field tested positive for
marijuana, the report said.
After Alamia was secured in the back seat,

the officer searched the home and found a
rear window opened and that the trim to a
rear door was broken and lying on the floor,
signs the home was forcibly entered.
Brown was charged with armed burglary,
which is a first-degree felony, carrying a
concealed weapon, criminal mischief less
than $200, and resisting arrest without vio-
lence. Alamia was charged with burglary,
which is a third-degree felony, criminal mis-
chief less than $200, possession of marijuana
less than 20 grams, and possession of drug
The two were taken to the Departinent of
Juvenile Justice in Bartow.



Man jailed

for using


in robbery
SEBRING - A machete
was enough of a threat for a
clerk at a Shell Station on
U.S. 27 to give a robber at
least $500 after he made sev-
eral requests.
Billy Wilson, 37, Sebring,
was charged with first-degree
armed robbery after a K-9
tracked him to a fence behind
his house on Capri Street,
according to a report by
Deputy Anthony McGann of
the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office.
The robbery took place at
2:30 a.m. Thursday morning
at the gas station at 6229 U.S.
27 North
Wilson allegedly entered
the store with a silver
machete and at one point
drew back the weapon as if in
a striking position.
Tracking him to his resi-
dence, they found Wilson to
be in possession of the
machete and he was positive-
ly identified by the clerk,
McGann said.
In his bedroom deputies
discovered a sleeve from a
gray shirt "which had been
fashioned into a mask by hav-
ing eye holes cut into it,"
McGann said.
Wilson is a convicted felon
but does. not have a violent
criminal history, according to
the HCSO Web site.
According to the records
on the site, Wilson has been
charged with two separate
counts of DUI, the second
with a blood alcohol content
more than .20, and driving
with a suspended license.
He remains in the -

Avon Park High School choir brings New York show to Avon Park on Tuesday

AVON PARK - After a trip to
perform at Carnegie Hall in New
York City, the Avon Park High
School choir students are putting on
their spring concert.
Area residents are invited to the
First Baptist Church in Avon Park at
7 p.m. on Tuesday to experience a
little of what Avon Park brought to
New York.
The concert will feature perform-

ances by the Carnegie Hall Choir,
Women's Show Choir, Mixed Show
Choir, Men's Choir, Concert Choir,
and a special performance by Choir
The 23 local members that made
the trip in late FEbruary were part of
a National Youth Choir.
"(The trip) was a tremendous
opportunity and speaks volumes
about the talent and dedication of
these students," said Joy Loomis, the
APHS choral director.

For many students, it was not only
their first trip to New York, but their
first trip out of the state.
"You realize there is more out
there, than cows," said junior
Elizabeth Burgess.
For Burgess, it was a story she
will tell for years to come.
"I can tell my kids I sang at
Carnegie Hall," she said, "It's not
something everyone gets to do. It's a
rare opportunity and within a rural
county with the way the economy is

right now."*
For senior Chrissy Bower, it shed
new light on the Sept. 11, 2001 ter-
rorist attacks.
"Our hotel was a block away from
the towers," she said. "It brought it
into perspective."
As a senior, the trip was really
special for her, she said.
When approaching Carnegie Hall,
she expected a mammoth building
protruding like some sort of modern-
day architectural wonder, but it was

"just a small building," she said.
"Then you walk in and bam! It has
amazing sound."
The group saw a Broadway show,
rode the subway, and took a trip to
the Statue of Liberty and Times
For Junior Kimberly Cason, the
memories are written in ink.
She brought home a copy of the
program that has her name on it.
"I gave a copy to my mom and she
almost cried," she said.

Comp plan amendment application filed for Blue Head Ranch

News-Sun staff ,
LAKE WALES - A comprehensive plan
amendment application was filed May 13 by
Atlanticblue involving the proposed creation of
an overlay district for the 65,000-acre Blue
Head Ranch in Highlands County.
The comp plan amendment is a long-term
plan with "no immediate plans for develop-
ment," said Atlanticblue Business Development
Manager Susie Bishop.
However, approval of the plan "would help

strengthen Atlanticblue's goals to provide long-
term natural resource protection and sustain-
able agricultural areas for Blue Head Ranch
while also ensuring the company's right to
develop a portion of the property in the future,"
an Atlanticblue press release said.
"We're looking forward to having the oppor-
tunity to put part of Blue Head Ranch in con-
servation while we sustain a portion of it in ag
business," Bishop said. "Then a portion could
be developed in future years."

Again, our team sincerely appreciates the vote by the readers of
The News-Sun for their vote of confidence!

The auction comes on the heels of a great
showing for the Henscratch Wines at the
International Wine and Grape Juice
Competition in Tampa.
The local wines took awards for Best
Florida Red, Best Florida White and the
Country White took the Best of Show.
It was the first time in the history of the
competition that a scuppernong grape was
awarded that status, or that the same winery
claimed both red and white titles.
Lauchman planted 10 acres of scuppernong
and muscadine grapes in 1999 after attending
a growers workshop in Highlands County.
During the life of her business, Lauchman
has been president of the Highland Grape
Growers Association for four years and vice

We all have to

work together

We extend sympathies to Avon Park's new police
chief, Matthew Doughney.
Talk about having to dive into the deep end of the
pool - attending his first city council meeting, on his
first day on the job, only to see the division between
members of his department and the city council and
administration, which are struggling to contain costs.
It is a sign of the times that Doughney's first deci-
sions will involve the take-home policy regarding
official cars, and not more substantive issues involv-
ing public safety.
It's another sign of the times that ill will may be
generated by whatever is decided on the drive-home
This is where we have to pause a minute and take a
deep breath.
Folks, all of us are going to be.making sacrifices
over the next several years.
If we Americans are honest, we'll admit we've
known this was coming for some time. There is no
way to have as many men and women in uniform fac-
ing danger as we do without somehow backing them
up - and you know that doesn't mean shopping until
you drop.
We have to be more careful spending our resources
here, because our brave soldiers, marines, air men and
sailors need so many resources over there.
More than ever, our elected and appointed leaders
are going to need our support, patience and courage
as they make more and more difficult choices.
That doesn't mean, however, that our leaders
should just grasp at the first different idea, or even an
old staple that has worked in the past.
Now more than ever we need to think before we
simply react. We need to double.check facts and test
out ideas.
For example, will it really save the city money if
city employees don't drive their official cars to ajpd
_ from work?
And if it does, are city employees patriotic enriough
to make the sacrifice?
A more difficult question - if it does save the city
money, can city employees afford to make the sacri-
Some of us, the children and grandchildren of
World War II veterans, remember a sense of longing
growing up - the idea that the great, good war had
been missed and with it the delicious sense of belong-
ing and purpose that come from joining a common
Well, welcome to a new common cause. Now, let's
face it together.
We have to save money. How are we going to do it?
As we wrestle with the problem it will be up to
Chief Doughney, and our other leaders - all of
whom volunteered, or even spent money and worked
hard to get their jobs - to keep us positive, enthused
and on track. It's tough work, but someone's got to do
it, and it might as well be you.
Good luck.

Many ways to 'respect' our elders
May is Elder Law Month in Florida. And,
no, you do not need to run out and buy a sen-
ior a Hallmark card! But you may want to
take into consideration the following which
has nothing to do with "The Law" but has
everything to do with "Elders":
Elder R-E-S-P-E-C-T means:
1. R - Revere seniors. In many cultures,
elders are revered. Unfortunately, this concept
seems lost on many persons in our country.
We often loathe the idea of being older, or of
just being called "elderly." The longer I prac-
tice elder law, and work with seniors and their
families, the more I. have learned that they are
entitled to be respected for the knowledge
they can impart to younger generations.
2. E - Educate seniors. Whoever said, "It is
impossible to teach an old dog new tricks?" I
do not think the author of that refrain wants
to be identified, because, nowadays, most
healthy seniors are vibrant and are now eager
to learn new tricks, e.g., computers, I-pods,
etc. They want to be informed about politics,
new laws, and the world. Some even like
hip-hop music!
3. S - Stereotyping seniors needs to end.
Nowadays seniors are living longer and
healthier. Most are very alert and active.
They are not all "old fogies." Many are
kickin' up their heels. Many are finding love
in the twilight of their lives. The more seniors
we get to know, the less we can group them
as one giant homogenous mass.
4. P - Patience is a virtue. Yes, this refrain
is a truism. We all need to learn how to be
patient with those seniors who may be a little
slow, a little hearing impaired, or just not able
to grasp what we want as quickly as we may
like. I regret being so impatient with my par-
ents, even though, ironically, most of my eld-
erly clients think I am unbelievably patient
with them.
5. E - Explore their life stories. There is no
one who has lived long enough who does not
have interesting stories to share with the
younger generations. Ask your senior family
member to tell you about their early life.
Video and audio tape their stories. You will
treasure this one day when they are no longer
around. I can barely remember the sound of
my now deceased parents' voices, and deeply
regret never having recorded their voices, or
taken more home movies.
6. C - Children they are not! Yet many
times seniors are treated as if they were chil-
dren, especially when they have diminished
capacity. Some professionals are guilty of
treating their patients or clients as if they
were children, by disregarding some very
legitimate concerns as "you're just getting
7. T - Treat seniors "as you would like to
be treated yourself" when YOU are a senior.
Yes, call it The Golden Rule as adapted for
seniors, because, hopefully, we will all live
long enough (and well enough) to be seniors
ourselves one day!

SFCC did great paint job
I took my 1979 Cadillac Eldorado to the
paint shop at South Florida Community
College to have it painted. I was very happy
with the results. It was done almost perfect,
they did a beautiful job.
All they charge is to pay for the materials,
no labor charge.
I took it to a car show at Woody's and got a
lot of good comments. I would recommend
anyone to take their car there.
I would like to thank the teacher, Dan
Longnecker, and the students for a fine job.

Quarles does great job at SHS
This past weekend at Sun 'N Lakes Golf &
Country Club, the Sebring High School Golf
Classic was played. By all accounts it was a
very successful event and there are literally
hundreds of people involved in this effort.
There are business people and sponsors to
thank, as well as volunteers, golfers, students,
teachers and other staff from Sebring High
School. The Sebring Firemen, as is their cus-
tom when kids are involved, were on hand
providing food to the golfers. Despite some
difficult economic challenges, the community
of Sebring dug deep to make this tournament
work, leaving no doubt as to the importance
of children and athletics in our community.
However, like all successful teams, busi-
nesses, and organizations, there is one person
that is the driving force behind it. In the case
of both the SHS Golf Classic and the athletic
programs at Sebring High School, that person
is Terry Quarles, our athletic director. There
aren't enough adjectives in the English lan-
guage to adequately describe the kind of per-
son she is, but I'm going to give it a shot. She
is selfless, hard-working, and passionate
about student-athletes of all sports. She freely
gives of her time, her energy, as well as her
personal resources. With no desire for recog-
nition or ulterior motives, she invests her very
life into the things that are good and right
about sports at Sebring High School.
All effective leaders will acknowledge that
there is someone special at their right hand,
Coach Quarles' right hand is Patty Reutebuch.
Coach Reutebuch is the definition of someone
who works behind the scenes. She spent
countless hours organizing people, asking for
donations and prizes, and driving around
Highlands County (and beyond) to make this
tournament so special.
It is an understatement to say that we are
blessed to have Terry Quarles as our athletic
director at Sebring High School. It is not an
understatement, however, to say that on
behalf of the Blue Streak coaches, athletes,
patents, faculty ahd staff, we thank you for all
you do. More importantly, though, we thank
you for being our friend, our mentor, and our
role model. Thank you, Coach Quarles.

Maybe it's about time we started believing in miracles

There have been a lot of good things happening
in Lakeland lately. A revival that started over a
month ago has people coming from all over the
world. Reports of miracles are being heard, with
the minister insisting they go to their doctors, get a
before and after report. How many actually do
that, I do not know. I know we've heard it all
before ... the tent revivals of years ago, some were
real, some were not.
And the only sure way to know if it's authentic
is if it lines up with the Word of God and if the
glory or praise is given to the Lord alone (and not
a man or ministry).
In these troubling times, it's no wonder people
are coming from everywhere for answers to their
questions in life. These are the kinds of folks that
come, other than the curious ones or ones looking
for something to discredit it. How often do we
hear of miracles in our local churches? I know
there have been some major answers to prayer
here and there, but not on this scale.

has happened even evolving into cults, etc. How
much control is too much control? Only the church
leaders can prayerfully figure that out.
In the book of Revelation, chapter 3:20 (com-
monly used in salvation messages), it shows a pic-
ture of Jesus standing at the door of a church ask-
ing to come in.
I think God is saying through this revival that
His church needs to let go and let God be God. It
is in the opinion of this columnist that we are liv-
ing in the last days and if we ever needed God, it's
now more than ever.
May we all find the peace that passes all under-
standing in the days to come.
(NOTE: I know not all believers have the same
theology, so this is geared to those who do practice
or follow these beliefs.)

A Heart's
Janelle Dennison
I believe time is winding down and God is
beginning to move sovereignly among those who
are tired of religion and really want to see God
alive and well in their lives ... proof. Jesus showed
himself alive with many infallible proofs (Acts
1:3). He said signs would follow confirming the
word the apostles would preach (Mark 16:17-18).
And Peter said that God approved his son's min-
istry with signs and wonders (Acts 2:22). The
book of Acts was never completed because the
church age is still here and "writing" it.
But for every real move of God, there is a coun-
terfeit. Sometimes fear keeps a lot of Christians
from daring to believe something miraculous could
happen to them or in their local church. Leaders or
people in ministry feel the need to-control things,
so nothing gets out of hand because too often that

Strange mail

I want to start this column by
saying nice things about the
post office. This is not just
because one of my friends is a
postman and a really, really fine
One reason I try not to tick
off the post office is that I use
them a lot. I recently bought a
book called, "You Know You're
a Writer When...," a book with
all kinds of way to finish that
sentence. One way is, "You
know you're a writer when
postage stamps are your idea of
a thoughtful gift."
There is a lot of truth to this
statement. I go into mourning
when the postal rates increase.
While some magazines and
publishers will allow you to
send your work via e-mail
(thank you Romona, gracious
editor of the News-Sun, for let-
ting me e-mail my column
every week), a large number
still want you to send your sto-
ries and novels the old-fash-
ioned way - regular mail.
Not only do I have to mail
the manuscripts, I also have to
include a self-addressed
stamped envelope for them to
send their response back. If I
wanted to, I could send them
. enough postage to get the whole
manuscript back. SinceI can
simply print out a new one
when I get a rejection, I send a
long envelope that just requires
one stamp for editors to send
their answer back to me.
So the postal service is
important to me. I try to be nice
to them as well, by making sure
I put more than enough postage
on my envelopes and not put-
ting anything weird in them.
Well, OK, the stories might be
weird, but nothing else. Really.
The same could not be said
for a package. that recently
turned up in "a Pennsylvniam
post office. It had come from
Taiwan. The label claimed it
contained toys, gifts, and jel-

suspicious people, but when
they heard scratching noises
coming from the box, they con-
sidered the possibility that the
label might be misleading. The
postmaster called the proper
authorities, and the scratchy
sounding box went to
Once the box was x-rayed
and opened, the mystery was
solved. The contents turned out
to be more than two dozen live
beetles. Huge living beetles.
Worse, these were beetles
that are less than welcome to
our fair land. They are the kind
of beetles that will do bad
things to good crops. Not some-
thing your fruit or vegetable
grower would be excited to find
in the field.
And, to top it all off, it is
against the law to ship live bee-
tles into the United States with-
out a permit from the
Department of Agriculture.
That's right - these are illegal
alien beetles!
Not only are they illegal,
seven of them were in contain-
ers labeled by gender, which
raises the possibility that some-
one was going to breed them.
So were they going to make lit-
tle anchor beetle babies so they
could stay in this country?
U.S. Customs and the Border
Protection Agency are involved
in the case. The authorities
know the sent the package as
well as who it was meant for.
There is an investigation going
on, but no idea if anyone is
going to be charged with a

When The Word

"Service" Meant

We remember when people took the time to
serve others. Our family has been helping
families here for many years. A our town
has grown, we have grown too, with more
specialized services, such as out-of-town
arrangements, pre-arrangements, cremations
and a grief recovery program. Even though
we have grown, our dedication to service is
still the same as it was years ago. And, we
think that's really something.

Florida Surgeon General Ana Viamonte Ros visited the Highlands County
Department of Health recently in her tour of Florida's 67 departments of health and
23 children's medical centers. She was particularly impressed, she said, with
Highlands County's comprehensive services and emergency training. Those smaller
counties that work in partnership with each other, 'using the collaborative mantra,'
show the greatest advances, she said. Here interim health department director
Robert Palussek watches Ros look at a bound book about Highlands County the

taken part in the store's support schools program, where every receipt turned in earns a
school cash. Here Strickland presents the check. From left ot right, Laura Waldon, Fred Wild's
incoming principal; Strickland; Ruby Handley, Fred Wild's outgoing principal; Lillian Todd, the

Take Stock in Children schol-
arship. It was a simple
process of contributing the
money and gaining matching
funds from the South Florida
Community College
Foundation Inc.
The Foundation serves as
the lead agency for Take
Stock in Children in
Highlands, DeSoto, and
Hardee counties.
"We call it the Carroll,
Horton, and York scholarship
because our dads believed
strongly in the power of edu-
cation," said Ambler, daugh-
ter of John York.
"Our dads provided us with
encouragement and the mone-
tary opportunity to attend col-
lege, so in their memory we
want to pass that on."

"All three of us teared up a
bit at the solemn ceremony
when the scholarship contract
was signed," said Hackney,
daughter of Odren Carroll.
"I guess we were thinking
about the unwavering confi-
dence and support our dads
gave us and now that is being
passed forward."
"Our dads had a plan for
sending us to college even
before we set foot in a first
grade classroom," said Carter,
daughter of Edmond Horton.
"We're just trying to catch
up. with a sixth-grader and
help the student achieve the
goal of a college graduation.
We never imagined ourselves
being able to do this. .But
since matching funds are
available, it's possible."

Flexibility is

a good thing
Friends had been at a
theme park in Florida. It
had been an exhausting
day of waiting on lines,
enjoying attractions and
keeping up with their
The time had come to
head back to their accom-
modations, so they hopped
the bus.
The bus driver took his
charges to the various
locations, but never went
to our friends' hotel. So
they inquired about it and
the bus'driver told them he
would drop them off where
they had picked up his
"You're on the wrong
bus. Your color is purple.
That bus will be along in
about 10 minutes," he said.
So, they wearily left the
bus and tried to keep the
tired children happy as
they waited.
In the meantime they
watched the bus driver go
through his paces. When
he changed his sign to pur-
ple, their jaws dropped and
they just looked at each
Sure enough, he had
them load onto the same
bus they had just left -
only10 minutes later and
now sporting the purple
color they needed!
Our friends couldn't
believe what they'd just
witnessed. This man rigid-
ly followed a system he'd
set up and wasn't about to
change it for anybody.
I once heard someone
say that if we don't flex,
we'll. break.
Flexibility is important
in all areas of life. If we
are too rigid in bur think-
ing, our planning or our
actions we risk breakage.
That's not to say that we
shouldn't have convictions
that are stable, make intel-
ligent choices and plans,
or be consistent and
dependable in our actions.
What it does say is to have
some stretching, bending
and growing room to bene-
fit others and ourselves.
We need to allow for the
unknown and unexpected.
I enjoy reading Proverbs
in the Bible. It offers such
sage advice. Passages such
as Proverbs 16: 9, NIV, put
it plainly. "In his heart a
man plans his course, but
the Lord determines his
I still write down plans
for the day and week as
appointments come along.
I try to think ahead so I'm
not in a state of confusion
without direction and pur-
But I've also learned
(and am continuing to
learn) when planning my
day to allow elbow room
for God's 'interruptions,'
nudging or total revamping
of my plans.
If I fret and fuss when
this happens, not only do I
add stress to my day; but, I
miss the blessing he has
had for me all along in
directing my steps.
Flexibility. It's a good
thing. Selah

Avon Park Library Film Series to feature'Noise' on May 30 at 2 p.m.

Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - "Noise" is the next
featured film in the Avon Park Library
Film Series. It will be shown at 2 p.m.
Friday, May 30, in the meeting room
of the Avon Park Library.
Directed by Matthew Saville in
2007, "Noise" is in English and it 109
minutes in length. The film is about a

young police constable assigned to
surveillance in a police caravan after a
particularly brutal mass murder in the
suburbs of a large Australian city. He
suffers from extreme tinnitus, which
his superiors will not credit. Tinnitus'
main hallmark is a high-pitched ring-
ing in the ears. It's irritation factor is
high. Saville in his movie's sound-

track successfully assays the discom-
fort of the policeman.
"The acts of hearing and listening
are central to the film's premise" says
Luke Buckmaster, film reviewer for
Infilm Australia.
While at his assignment on the
periphery of the efforts to solve the
crime the officer comes in contact

with several locals who are deeply
affected by the crime and in the end
comes closer to the solution than he
ever thought he would. '
The Australian film critics were lav-
ish in the praise of this film. It is
unrated but may contain a particularly
gory murder scene.

Highlands Soil and Water Conservation District holds second Home Composting Workshop

On May 8, staff from
Highlands Soil and Water
Conservation District put on
a Water Conservation/Home
Composting Workshop. It
was well attended and the
agenda included two
PowerPoint presentations,
with special guest speaker
Sara May from Okeechobee,
sharing of information by
Earth Team volunteers,
refreshments and door prizes.
Many low-flow shower heads
were given away and more
than 50 composting kits were
This composting workshop
was the second event hosted
by HSWCD. At the
November event, prepared
barrels were sold to attendees
and staff instructed home
owners how to go home and
build their own stand. Our
six Earth Team volunteers
came up with a better idea
for the second workshop and
decided to construct com-
posting "kits." Each kit
includes everything that is
needed to go home and
assemble the entire compost

From The

ing unit.
Thanks to
their hard
work and.
more than
60 com-
kits were
for the
May work-
The first
part of the

workshop included a presen-
tation on water conservation
followed by a demonstration
of the low-flow shower heads
that were given away.
HSWCD received a grant
from the Southwest Florida
Water Management District
and with the funds, pur-
chased more than 1,000 low-
flow shower heads. Staff felt
that by giving away these
water saving devices, the
people in Highlands County
will be conserving lots of
water. To date, we have given
away more than 900 shower

As you know, we have
been experiencing a drought
for more than two years now.
It is critical that we all do
whatever we can and take
steps to conserve this pre-
cious natural resource. The
shower water you use in your
home accounts for about 17
percent of your indoor water
usage. By using low-flow
devices, you can cut your
shower water usage by 2/3.
That's a lot of water to be
The second part of the
workshop was all about home
composting. The practice of
composting not only allows
homeowners to have lush,
green plants, but it reduces
the amount of waste in the
household. Composting helps
the environment in so many
ways and it is the best soil
additive around.
After the workshop, atten-
dees who wanted to purchase
a kit lined up in their vehi-
cles and our volunteers
loaded them up. More than
50 kits were sold and we, at
HSWCD, are so excited that

so many folks in Highlands
County will be composting in
the future.
Compete with door prizes,
yummy refreshments and lots
of information sharing,
including vermicomposting
(composting with worms),
attendees and staff had a

great time.
If you didn't get to attend
the workshop and you want
to start composting, don't
worry - we still have a few
kits left. If you want to
reduce the amount of house-
.hold waste, help the environ-
ment and have green, happy

plants, give us a call today at
402-6545 and we'll load you
up with a kit.

Tips for bee-proofing your property

Just between you, me, and
the garden post ... this is not
the first time I have heard of
Africanized honey bees or'
AHBs present in Highlands
County. But this is the first
time in Florida that it has
caused.a fatality. For those of
you who haven't heard it on
the news, a citizen of
Okeechobee County died from
Africanize honey bee stings
Africanized honey bees have
been slowly working their way
up our coasts and inland
toward the North for several ,
years now. What makes it so
difficult for'anyone that isn't
an entomologist is these AHBs
have breeded with our
European honey bees, which
makes it very difficult to phys-
ically identify.
One major characteristic of
AHBs that concerns our public
is the bee's ability to nest
almost anywhere. Generally
the docile races of honey bees
that beekeepers manage nest in
enclosed areas. So the AHBs
are more likely to nest in areas
in close proximity to humans
and if the nest is disturbed,
several hundred honey bees

can come

defend the
nest; there-

stings is
then from
Urban the
Horticulture European
Dee Jacobson bees. This
is a direct
threat to our elderly, children,
and especially our pets because
they are unable to sustain
many stings.
It is very important that the
AHBs nesting sites are elimi-
nated and this can be done by
bee proofing your property. By
this I mean methodically
removing or restricting access
to potential AHB nesting sites.
Not only does this make your
property safer, but saves you
time and money down the road
because of eliminating the
chances of wild colonies mov-
ing in to structures around
your home, which to have
removed is very expensive
because,of structural repair.

New Eagle Scout

To locate possible AHBs
nesting sites look for small
openings that access an open,
shaded area.
An example of this is open
water meters, manholes, holes
in a wall that lead to open
spaces in a wall, gutters,
downspouts, pipes etc.
Although this type of nesting
site is a AHBs favorite place,
they certainly can and will nest
in other locations.
That is why it is very impor-
tant to do regular inspections
and monitor for bees. This is
done by looking for bee activi-
ty. By this I mean seeing the
bees come and go out of open-
ings is a good indicator that
you have a nesting site.
For more information on
Africanized honey bees you
can call or visit the Highlands
County Extension Service and
talk with one of my Master
Gardeners or myself. You can
also check out the university's
Web site by entering

Birds And Other Wild Things

Purple martins have

arrived in Highlands

Welcome to our roost! We debated the ques-
tion, "Report on our favorite bird, the Florida
scrub jay , or the purple martin?" The martin
won out because they have arrived in
Highlands County, weeks ago, some showing
up as early as the middle of January!
These early arrivals - sometimes called
"scouts" - are male martins, who are strong
flyers and will enable them the opportunity to
pick good sites, suitable for gathering building
and nesting material, easy access to the house
and food sources. As martin "landlords" know,
it is important to erect the martin house as
close to the anticipated arrival date as possi-
ble, thus helping to keep out the pesky English
sparrows. It would be a help to the writers of
this column if landlords would let us know
when "their" martins arrived.
Those of us lucky to have invested in a
good martin house will soon reap the benefit
of ridding the area of pesky biting, flying
insects and hopefully, lots of mosquitos! To
hear once again, that lovely, bubbling chatter
of the purple martin, which always brings a
smile from anyone listening, reassures us that
another of life's mysterious cycles has been
Modern man has copied the practice of
attracting purple martins to his home from our
American Indians, who hung clusters of hol-
low gourds in trees as nesting places for the
birds; knowing that the martins would con-
sume thousands of flying, biting insects. As a
matter of fact, gourds made of heavy plastic
are now used in addition to the apartment size
martin house available today. Aluminum hous-
es are recommended as they are easier to clean
and to rid the dwelling of mites.
Purple martins (progne subis) are 7-8 1/2
inches in size and are considered to be our
largest swallow. Adult males are steel-blue in
color, female and immature males a duller blue
above, pale gray below. When viewed in
flight, the shape is similar to Starlings, but
flight is more buoyant and gilding; four or five
white eggs are laid in a mass of grass, mud
and other plant material, built by both sexes.
(When cleaning out your martin house, please
pay attention to the material used and please
let us know what was included). Incubation is
by female and lasts 15-17 days. Male will
"spell" female for short periods, but does not
usually do any incubating. His job will be
guarding the nest. The young are tended by
both parents and will leave the next at 26-30

Purple martins are dark-colored swallows.
They are about 7 to 8 inches long. In addi-
tion, purple martins are vocal, sociable birds
that seem to enjoy being around people.
Purple martins prefer bird houses that are
within 100 feet of human homes.

Fall migration can begin as early as late
June when flocks of purple martins may be
seen gathering before their trans-Gulf flight to
Brazil. Leaving Florida, they will stop over in
Cuba and rest, then continue on to South
America. Most of the Florida population
leaves the state long before northern birds
migrate through in late August and September.
If you wonder why martins migrate, you are
not alone! Many theories have been proposed.
One of these is the "Northern Home Theory."
According to it, the North American continent
was the original home of certain birds. and that
during the Pleistocene Era or earlier, they were
forced to seek milder climates and occasional-
ly migrated southward. Only later did they
return to their homeland of North America for
breeding. Thus the martins return north in the
No scientific account (there have been
many!) for the migration of birds is convinc-
ing. Be that as it may, it is always a pleasure
to enjoy the company of the Purple Martin,
while listening to the melodious calls and
happy chatter.
Until next time, here is a ditty we ran across
recently by Tomas DeQuincey: "The peace of
nature and of the innocent creatures of God,
seems to be secure and deep, only so long as
the presence of man and his restless and
unquiet spirit are not there to trouble its sanc-

Red or White, everyone is ready

Senior running back Virgil Cooper (3) gets his chance to handle the ball during the first
quarter of the Red and White scrimmage, but defensive player Rashad Young tries to take
away his joy, stopping his run just short of a first down.

News-Sun correspondent
AVON PARK - Over 75
spectators speckled the stands
Friday night at Joe Franza
Stadium to get their first look
at the Avon Park Red Devil's
football team during the Red
and White scrimmage.
Devil fans were treated to
four quarters of football, and
got a preview of next year's
varsity and junior varsity
Coaches got a chance to
take a look at players to help
them determine who would
play in what positions, and
the players got a chance to get
a feel for the-game and their,
"We are going to do good
this year, and I feel fresh,"
said Avon Park's starting
Even though it was just a
scrimmage, Moses went 4 for
5 and completed two touch-

downs during the live action.
"I am more confident this
year. We have a lot of seniors
this year, over 20, and we
have a good chance." said
The first quarter of the
game was used to take a good
long look at the starting
"Frankly, I think we have a
good team," said fullback
Buddy Duke.
Duke, an upcoming senior,
had to leave the game early
due to an injury to his hand,
but stated he was looking for-
ward to the upcoming season.
"We can sure hit. I think we
have a pretty strong offensive
line, there is definitely some
great blocking going on, and
as a back you can't really go
anywhere without a strong
line," added Duke.
"The team is really having
a good time, and I think we
are looking good this year,"

said Matt Colman who
returned this year to help out
with the offensive line.
"We are a physical team for
sure, and we have quite a few
seniors returning. That makes
for a good combination. And,
we are having fun as a team.
That makes a big difference."
Norman Elliot, new to the
team this year as line coach,
was optimistic about the
Devil's future season.
"The key is to work hard
and to work as a unit. We
expect the line to work
together and watch out for
each other both on and off the
field as well as in school. If
we can develop that team-
work, then we should do well
this year."
The Red Devils face off
against the Green Dragons in
Lake Placid for their spring
game on Friday, May 23 at
7:00 p.m.

Dragons show new attack in Green and White game

Green Dragons, and the White
Dragons for that matter, got
their first 'game action'
Friday during the annual
spring Green and White
Though more a scrimmage,
each side had their own set of
coaches while head coach
Tim Grant oversaw the action
as the head official, time
keeper and commissioner.
"The kids were really excit-
ed," Grant said. "Getting the
chance to play, they have
been really pumped up and
couldn't wait to get out here."
The teams got to put their
netw offensive system into
play, with both sides showing
a very effective running
"It's' something we did a
little at the end of last year,
but then we went to some
coaching seminars and
learned a lot niore about it,"
Grant said of the offense, the
name of which he is trying to
keep under wraps. "We found
out how much we didn't know
and it's something that should.

mage, the action was as full
out as any regulation game -
with hard hitting pops heard
all over the field.
The offense, with multiple
running opportunities out of a
single, though complex, for-
mation, showed it's potential
as Caleb Jones and Anthony

you have to find ways to
First off, I think the sports
section has lost ground
because it is trying to com-
pete with TV, internet and
magazines at their game.
A newspaper will never be
able to give you news as
quickly as the net or TV.
I don't know how many
times I have gone to check
the score of last night's game
only for it to have been too
late to run.
So in essence I can't find
out about a lot of games until
two days after they were
Sportscenter and
ESPN.com aren't going to
have that problem.
Here is another beef I
have. Whatever happened to
box scores?
I hate these new abbreviat-
ed box scores. They are such
To get good box scores, I
have to go to the internet.
So what is a paper to do?
Now I thought about this
much of the afternoon and I
aamit there aren't any really
easy answers.
One thing is for sure, if the
sports section wants to sur-
vive it is going to have to up
its game.
The first thing that needs
to happen is bring back the
box scores.
Then, I think'papers would
be smart to follow their local
area better and leave the
national up to the minute
stuff to someone else.

Let's see more of those in-
depth articles about the local
teams, the college teams, the
high school teams and the 8-
year-old prodigy,.
And stop ignoring niche
Get someone to go write
about the local running
scene, mountain biking,
motocross and shuffleboard.
You'll expand your audi-
ence while also adding things
that are not on ESPN.
Finally, don't see the
Internet as the enemy, it can
be a friend.
Not only does it give a
forum for extra content, but


it also can be a place where a
writer can more fully
expound on something they
care about.
And how cool would it be
if your local sports section
had it's own local sports
If sports taught you any-
thing, it should have taught
you that sometimes you must
change your game if you
want to win.
No one shoots the set shot
anymore or plays football
with a leather helmet.
So don't moan what the
sports section was. Think
what it can be!
