Atlantic Blue

drops Rural

Land

Stewardship
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
'kevi'n.shitt@ineiwssiun.comi
SEBRING With 65,000
acres at its disposal, Atlantic
Blue's Blue Head Ranch is
seeking Highlands County's
approval of a large-scale
comprehensive plan amend-
ment that would pave the way
for future development.
All of it is zoned agricul-
tural.
"We're allowed a single-
family dwelling on every five'
acres," Lake Wales-based
Atlantic Blue -spokeswoman
Susie Bishop said Friday.
That means Blue Head
Ranch could sell off its prop-
erty piecemeal eventually
creating 13,000 homes all
operating on septic tanks and
well water with no considera-
tion for schools, fire stations,
stores, hospitals or other
;services.
Located west of Lake
Placid from about Miller
Avenue to south of State
Road 70, such a scenario
would represent the ultimate
in urban sprawl.
In addition, Blue Head is
abandoning its Rural Land
Stewardship application for
the comprehensive plan
amendment, which would
seem to be an environmental-
ist's nightmare.
Rural Land Stewardship
was borne from a Florida
court case that pitted land
owner against government.
The result was a long-term
planning tool that gave value
to lands designated for con-
servation by allowing owners
to transfer density credits
from protected parcels to
areas set aside for develop-
ment.
On paper, Rural Land
Stewardship was seen as a
win-win situation for all -
environmentalists would get
their conservation, land own-
ers would realize a return on
investment and residents
would have communities paid

ith 64 chapters scattered
across the nation and in 10
foreign countries, includ-
ing Venezuela and Puerto
Rico, the Latin American Motorcycle
Association is off to a good start right
here in Highlands County.
In October 2007, Leo Pedraza
moved here from West Palm Beach,
where he was a three-year vice presi-
dent of the 50-member chapter there.
"I went to the Run for the
Heartland and saw a lot of Latinos in
the area. I made contact with some of
them and we took off," Pedraza, the
local chapter's vice president, said.
In January an official chapter of the


The local chapter is now 27 members
strong.
Joe Rodriguey, bush :.,ts manager
and director of activities, described
the group as a family structure, one
where it is not unusual to see children
present. "We are about people who
want to ride motorcycles and enjoy
being together. We focus on the good
stuff," he said.
One way the group brings family
into the picture will be Sunday when
they have their first picnic in the park
near the Max Long Complex in
Sebring.

SEBRING For some, it
was the biggest competition
they have entered their
entire high. school careers.
These students, even the
sophomores in the contest
who are now officially half
way through high school,
have come a long way from
first walking the daunting
hallways of Sebring .High
School.
Art teachers Steve and
Jack VanDam submitted a
total of 12 students' work to
the 2008 Florida Art
Education Association K-12
Student Digital Exhibit.
There were 440 entries
from 48 schools and 57 art
teachers across Florida in.
the judged exhibit.
Of the 12 SHS students,
five were seniors, four were
juniors, and thd remaining
three were sophomores.
The variety wasn't some-


thing planned by their
teachers, they simply chose
the best work.
"At the point we (submit-
ted the entries), part of it
was students that had either
done well in one of the
shows we had done locally
or had been picked for artist
of the month," Steve
VanDam said. "It was more
of an honor."
The 12 assembled first
had to be accepted, before
their inclusion into the
exhibit, but all were.
"I wasn't sure if I was
,.going to make it," said jun-
ior Samantha Miller. "It was
di pretty neat opportunity."
Miller's pen and ink piece
took nearly a month of class
time to create, but is her
favorite.

of effort," she added. "I put
a lot of emotion into it, and
because it took me so long I

"We don't care about your color or
nationality, what we care about is
-what kind of person you are," Pedraza
said.
To be a member, one must have a
motorcycle no smaller than a 650cc.
The type of motorcycle is also of no
concern. A potential member must

Avon Park Chamber


has a hula of an affair


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK Chamber
of Commerce members and
local political leaders gath-
ered at the community center
Thursday night to celebrate
the chamber's past year with a
bright and sprightly Aloha
night.
All evening, the tone was
up beat and celebratory.
The chamber's finances,
"are in very, very excellent
shape,"' Treasurer Renee
Bennett told the filled room,
bright with Hawaiian shirts
and leis.
And the year's events -
including the Christmas
parade, the Festival on the
Mall, the Relay for Life,
Casino Night and the golf
tournament all went well,
or even better than before.
David Flowers, the master
of ceremonies, and David
Greenslade, CEO of the
chamber and host of the
evening, kept the event mov-
ing along.
Certain individuals and
organizations were recog-
nized for contributions above
and beyond the expected.'
Donna Vinson of Heartland
National Bank and Jeff


Mechlin with Embarq were
named the chamber's
.Directors of the Year by out-
going president Dennis
Meliti.
He praised their energy,
commitment and ability to get
things done.
The residents of
Reflections on Silver Lake
were honored with the
Community Service Award,
particularly for the drivers
who kept the tractor tram run-
ning all four days o6f,the
Flywheel Festival.
The newly renovated
Newsom Eye" Plaza at 1023
U.S. 27 South was given the
Beautification of the Year
Award. "They made a huge
investment," Greenslade said;
bringing back the strip mall
which had become faded and
neglected.
Special words of praise
were reserved for the
Heartland National Bank,
which was selected as
Business of the Year.
"Other businesses are leav-
ing downtown and heading to
the highway," Greenslade
said, "and here they are, relo-
cating from the highway to
downtown. It showed a lot of
confidence.


"And they have always
been there for the city,"
Greenslade added. "They
sponsored the Mall festival,
for example."
Capping the evening was
the announcement that native
son John Barben had been
selected as Citizen of the
Year.
"He has made long term
contributions to the citrus
industry, Junior Achievement,
the Noon Rotary, the Airport
CRA, the mall festival and the
Christmas parade,"
Greenslade said. "He has
always been active and an
example for others."
Also honored during the
evening was Katiana Ortiz,
who just graduated from Avon
Park High School. She was
awarded the chamber's
Wanda Daymon Scholarship
of $1,000.

SEBRING To improve
the VERB program in its third
year, Highlands County
Health Department turned to
the "tweens."
Every summer since 2006,
9-13 year olds have had the
opportunity to do what conies
naturally play and be
recognized for it.
"We want the tweens to
hang out with their friends
and have a good time," said
Derek Carlton, who runs the
VERB program for the Health
Department.
A full slate of events are
scheduled through July, dur-
ing which participants can
have their cards filled out.
During the grand finale cel-
ebration July 16, tweens can
turn in their completed cards
for a drawing.
The 15 prizes range from a
Nintendo Wii to a six-month
membership at Edge Cheer.
Oh, and don't forget the IMA
racing school, Specialized
BMX and iPod Nano -
prizes sure to ignite the
VERB in most children.
The more cards they com-
- plete, the more chances the
tweens have of winning.
"A kid can pretty much fill
out a card per week," Carlton
said.
For every hour of physical
activity, formerly known as
"playing," one of 24 squares

are initialed.
Parents of tweens can sign
off on 18 squares.
The remaining six (or
more) squares, Carlton
explained, must be completed
by VERB staff during any (or
all) of the five remaining two-
hour events or by a partnering
business' staff.
With the VERB program in
its third year and the
Heartland Triathlon too,
Carlton said a partnership'
between the two was a natu-
ral.
VERB tweens .registered
for the Tri and who attend all
of the remaining Tuesday
training sessions will have
their entry fees covered.
Each Tuesday attendance is
worth a 20 percent discount.
"We're so excited to be a
part of the triathlon," Carlton
said. "We want to make sure
that anybody can participate
in it who really wants to."
Participation in VERB has
steadily increased from 450
tweens in 2006 to between
500-600 last year.
By assembling a youth
advisory committee, Carlton
was able to tailor the program
based on previous partici-
pants' suggestions.
"They're the ones who said
they wanted a kick ball tour-
nament and they picked the
prizes," he said. "We want
this to be something the kids
enjoy doing."

Other viewpoints

Federal agents are snooping more often, in the
name of national security, but that surveillance has
led to fewer prosecutions on terrorism-related
charges, a study of government data has revealed.
The study of post-9/11 investigations calls into
question the effectiveness of the government's sweep-
ing anti-terrorism powers and shows the need for con-
gressional oversight.
Information on intelligence agencies' record
searches and wiretaps, and on subsequent ,court cases,
was obtained by the nonprofit Transactional Records
Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.
Using the Freedoim of Information Act to obtain
data, the clearinghouse found that warrants approved
by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to
search or eavesdrop on suspected terrorists or spies -
more than doubled since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
The court granted the Justice Department 2,370 such
warrants last year, compared with 934 in 2001.
The Justice Department also reported that the num-
ber of "national security letters" used by the FBI rose
36 percent, from 9,254 in 2005 to 12,583 in 2006, the
latest data available. Those letters seek consumer
information from banks, phone companies and
Internet providers without the knowledge of those
investigated and without court oversight.
Yet, in both 2007 and 2006, the number of "internal
national security" and terrorism cases prosecuted by
the Justice Department was more than 50 percent
below the level in 2002, the year after the attacks.
The decrease in prosecutions doesn't necessarily
mean that the increased surveillance is not being used
to deter terrorists. But, other than court cases, the
public' has almost no way of knowing how the gov-
ernment is using the results of its increased surveil-
lance.
The value of wide surveillance is especially ques-
tionable in light of a Senate Intelligence Committee
analysis, released last month, that found that the FBI
"has yet to make the dramatic leaps necessary" to
become an effective deterrent to terrorism.
Congress should examine how federal agencies are
using the intelligence-gathering poweirs granted after.
Sept. 11. Americans deserve to know whetherthe pri-
vacy they sacrificed has made America more secure,
or has created a false sense of security.


An editorial from the Lakeland Ledger.

ES.

The Florida Times-Union, on the talk of making
certain veterans with mental injuries eligible for
Purple Hearts:
Back during the Revolution, when George
Washington began handing out Purple Hearts, it made
perfect sense to give an award specifically for those
who suffered physical wounds in combat.
Those people had come close to death, and many
would be physically impaired the rest of their lives.
The Purple Heart was a symbol of society's grati-
tude and also a means of encouraging others to be
similarly brave in future wars.
But, in recent years, society has become more
acutely aware of psychological wounds that fighting
men and women also suffer.
And it seems that the current wars that involve
.long, repeated tours put our military men and women
at greater risk for psychological stress.
About one in five war veterans typically suffer
post-traumatic stress disorder, "usually characterized
by nightmares, sleeplessness and anxiety," according
to The Wall Street Journal.
That's why there is now talk of giving Purple
Hearts to certain veterans with mental injuries.
As city of Jacksonville military liaison Dan
McCarthy wrote to this newspaper:
"Traumatic emotional injuries are every bit as real,
and can be more debilitating, than physical wounds.
"... These young men and women bravely stepped
forward to defend our freedom. When they return
from the horrors of war, many will suffer throughout
life with emotional injuries inflicted during this com-
bat. .
"They are heroes, too, and should be afforded the
respect which the Purple Heart medal bestows."
Those who have acted in an extraordinary mariner,
but have psychological injuries, should receive the
same consideration as others with more obvious phys-
ical injuries.
Those in Washington should listen.

Legislation is too
much restriction
Editor:
Your help is needed in stop-
ping legislation that is trying
to force patients to utilize
hospital outpatient therapy
departments instead of being
able to choose where you go.
Legislation is set to stop the
therapy cap exception for
non-hospital based outpatient
therapy, which includes physi-
cal therapy, occupational ther-
apy and speech therapy. Right
now it is your choice where
you choose to receive rehabil-
itation, no one can tell you
where to go. Starting July 1,
2008, if legislation is not
stopped, you will be forced to
utilize only hospital based
outpatient therapy after you
reach your therapy cap.
The therapy cap allowed
certain diagnoses to extend
beyond the therapy cap,
meaning that once you
reached your therapy limit,
you could remain at the same
facility and Medicare would
still pay for the service. If
legislation passes the freedom
to make the choice of where
you rehabilitate will be taken
away. The therapy cap will be
$1,810 of allowed charges. If
Medicare is charged for $40
for a service they may only
allow $19 and then they will
pay 80 percent, or $15.20,
leaving $3.80 to be paid by
your supplemental insurance
or yourself if you do not have
insurance, but the $19 goes
towards the $1,810 cap
amount.
On another issue, Medicare
is-trying to reduce payment
by 10.6 percent to all non-
hospital based outpatient ther-
apy facilities, beginning July
1,2008. This will be the
fourth cut to non-hospital
based outpatient therapy facil-
ities in the past three years.
These therapy practices are
trying to give you a choice
outside of the hospital to
receive your therapy, enabling
you to become more in charge
of your health with more
choices. If payment keeps


dropping as everything else is
rising in costs, you may lose
your choice as well as the
therapy facility you have
grown to trust and rely on.
We, all private practice
therapists, are counting on
you to join us in calling, writ-
ing or e-mailing your con-
gressman and/or senators to
stop this legislation from
passing.

Ombudsman Program,
may enrich lives
Editor:
I just came from Orlando
and the Ombudsman Program
Workshop at the Hilton in
Disney World: it was quite an
experience. The current theme
or concept at Assisted Living
Facilities and Nursing Homes
(ALF, NH) is Person-Centered
Care, especially for residents
who can function individually.
This concept will supersede
institution-centered care even-
tually, that is, have one sched-
ule for everyone. This con-
cept, however, is-in the bud-
ding stage.
Statistics verify the fact
that residents who can func-
tion on their own time-lines
and cultural habits are healthi-


er ahd happier. Thus, better
health is also less costly
because the need'for prescrip-
tive drugs and nursing care
significantly decreases.
This recent concept/theme
will not be easy to adapt
because of long time estab-
lished schedules/operations,
but one facility at a time,
adopting this concept, has
provided data which verifies
its validity.
The key factor in this
desired transformation is the
Ombudsman, the one person
who regularly visits these
facilities and advocates posi-
tive changes for residents
he/she represents. It will take
time to transform some facili-
ties from warehouses for the
aged to homes for them.
Currently, only 0.01 percent
of the facilities in Florida
have made this transforma-
tion.
For those who do not know
about the Ombudsman pro-
gram under the Department of
Elderly Affairs/Agency for
Health Care Administration
(DOEA/AHCA); it is the
detective arm for AHCA, a
parallel correlation to the
detectives finding
evidence/facts in each case
for the D.A. on "Law and
Order." This requires knowl-
edge of the facility opera-
tions, state regulations, resi-
dents' concerns, compilation
of facts, verification of same
and recommendation of solu-
tions, if warranted. A follow-
up determines if facility com-
plies with the recommenda-
tions for solution.
A background check and
training are pre-requisites for
involvement in the
Ombudsman program. Time
and effort are essential ingre-
dients for the prospective
Ombudsman. This is a people-
oriented undertaking. It is a
great take on the Second
Great Commandment. As our
citizens move into the senior
category of the population,
there will be greater numbers
needing assistance of one type
or another. There is no greater
calling than service to others.
While there has been an


extraordinary effort to serve -
the needs of our youth after
all, great care is required to
insure a wholesome future for
them the focus has been
more recently compelling to
provide a more pleasant life
for those in the twilight of
their time on earth, especially
in ALFs and nursing homes
and a more active life in this
Ombudsman program for
Baby Boomers can put off the
time they may need assis-
tance, by enriching their lives
while assisting others, espe-
cially in Highlands County.
Please look into it.

Special 'mechanic'
helps shoppers
Editor:
Recently, my son took me
to Publix. He drives a big red
truck. When he backed out of
the parking place, the gears
locked in reverse and he
couldn't move the truck. It
was blocking the main thor-
oughfare in front of the build-
ing.
After trying everything he
knew to do, my son was talk-
ing on his cell phone trying to
get help when a car pulled
alongside and a young man
got out and came to help. We
could tell that he knew what
was wrong and he knew how
to fix it. This "mechanic" was
trying every way to correct
the problem and after working
together for several minutes,
my son was on the phone with
a garage to get a tow truck
when our "mechanic" was
able to unlock the gears.
Our life saver refused any
compensation and we don't
even know his name. We're
taking this means to say
"thank you" and to say how
glad we are that there are
some very nice people in
Sebring.
We hope he reads this so he
knows how much we appreci-
ated his help.

The primaries are finally over ... now what?


For all of those who have been hiding
in caves for the past few months, I'm
telling you it's safe to come out now.
The presidential primary season is final-
ly over. At least I think it is.
My waffling is because as I type this
column Wednesday night, Hillary
Clinton has not quite pulled out of the
race yet. Barack Obama got the required
number of delegates to cinch the nomi-
nation on Tuesday so she should be out.
Last I heard she plans to suspend her
campaign on Saturday so by the time
you're reading this column she might be
out. Or not. We'll see.
But at least we'll get our Tuesday
nights back. No more listening to people
whose qualifications to comment on
politics aren't always clear tell me what
the returns meant and what would hap-
pen next week. Then the following
Tuesday they'd be back explaining why
they were wrong the week before but
urging me to trust them they knew
what they were talking about!
I'll admit that while the length of the
primary season tested the patience of
and just about everyone there were times
ed. where those of us who are warped
eto and/or political junkies (as you know I
ity. happen to be both) found it entertaining.
to Admit it even if you are a supporter of
Senator Barack Obama isn't that clip of
him referring to having visited 57 states


Laura's
Look
Laura Ware
funny?
But it's been a strange campaign sea-
son. And as I look back over the months
we've gone through I find something
very interesting. Both, the Republican
and Democratic parties have their nomi-
nees and neither party seems over-
joyed at their choice.
A glance at the Republicans shows
that Senator McCain's standing among
the conservative branch of the party
isn't very high. Rush Limbaugh, who is
a great defender of the Republican Party
(and very conservative) continues to
play his parodies that feature McCain.
That doesn't signal happiness with the
choice.
On the other hand, I am seeing a lot
of unhappiness with Senator Obama.
Oh, I know some of the anger will fade
- it's standard that candidates who
couldn't stand each other during the pri-
maries will embrace each other during
the convention but there appears, to be
a genuine anger from some of Senator
Clinton's supporters, some of whom
appear to feel she was shabbily treated
by the Democratic Party and the media.
I've pondered the past months, and
the way it's all turned out, and even


though I've never been on a news show
talking politics I'd like to offer some
things I'd like to see in future primaries.
First, we should pass a law saying no
candidate can even announce they're
thinking about running for president
until the election is a year away or less.
We have to do something this is get-
ting worse than the way the Christmas
shopping season gets earlier every year.
If we're not careful, there will b' a
news story the day a new Presidient is
inaugurated that someone has
announced they're running for the office
in four years.
My next suggestion will surprise
those who know me. We need to get rid
of open primaries. I used to support*
open primaries so those who want to
cross party lines or who, like me, are
not a part of a political party. Given the
results that came from the Republican
Party, I think my chance to vote in the
primary isn't worth it.
I have one more proposal but no more
room. I'll tell you about it next week. If
you have any suggestions, e-mail me at
bookwormlady@embarqmail.com and
I'll mention those I can put in a family
friendly column. And that's not a cam-
paign promise.

Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can
be contacted by e-mail at bookwormlady@

Miller characterizes the

SHOOTING
Continued from 1A

he was deceased, a press
release from the HCSO said.
The second victim was
identified as Jose Franklin
Escalante, a Lake Placid resi-
dent who lives up the street
from the shooting scene.
Escalante was airlifted to
an undisclosed trauma center.
His condition is listed as
guarded and he is undergoing
treatment for his injuries,
Lethbridge said.
There were other people
home at the time of the shoot-
ing, Lethbridge said.
"We are confident we have
the man who shot these men
in custody," he said. "But we
will continue to see if any
other suspects are principals
or accessories in this case."
Kalinowski was arrested in
February of 2007 for posses-
sion of a controlled sub-
stance, cocaine, methamphet-
amine, and intent to sell, man-
ufacture or deliver metham-
phetamine.
The investigation into the
murder and the motives
behind it continue as the

for by growth rather than an
existing tax base.
The catch, of course, is
Rural Land Stewardship proj-
ects must be approved by the
state's Department of
Community Affairs, which
continues to write the rules
with minimal guidance from
Florida Statutes.
"When we were proceed-
ing, there were seven to eight
other land owners proceeding
as well," Bishop said.
Lykes Brothers, another
owner of a significant land
mass in Highlands County,
backed away from Rural Land
Stewardship last year.,
-"Many of .them have
stopped for the same reason,"
Bishop said. "There's uncer-
tainty of how the Department
of Community Affairs is
going to create the rules."
She said draft rules pre-
sented around December or
January provided a first blush
that wasn't promising the
state wanted 90 percent of
applicants' land designated
for conservation.
Under Rural Land
Stewardship, owners continue
to pay property taxes, are
responsible for maintaining
the land and are forever pre-
vented from developing it.
"That's just not realistic for
a land owner," Bishop said.
So, on Tuesday, Highlands
County Development
Services Director Jim Polatty
will ask the commission
board to approve a letter to
the state, at its request, with-
drawing both Rural Land
Stewardship applications -
Blue Head's and Lykes
Brothers'.
The county commission
meeting will be followed by a
regularly scheduled Planning
and Zoning Board meeting,
which will conduct a public
hearing for Blue Head's
large-scale comp-plan amend-
ment request.
"DCA doesn't like to have
loose strings lying around,"
Polatty said of Department of
Community Affairs' request.
Bishop, who was joined by
consultant Allison McGrath,
president, Land Planning
Solution, for a conference call
Friday, said Atlantic Blue
wants to move forward with-
out waiting to see which way
DCA's winds will blow.
Bishop said the comp-plan
amendment spans about 50
years, isn't a given and would
voluntarily designation
40,000 contiguous acres of
Blue Head Ranch for conser-
vation.
Atlantic Blue's owners,
which include Sen. J.D.
Alexander, benefit with
increased development rights
in a designated area that could
eventually be the county's
forth municipality.
"If it should develop, it
would be a fiscally-neutral,
walkable, sustainable com-

HCSO uncovers what hap-
pened at the lounge earlier
that evening and how the vic-
tim and suspect knew each
other.
"(Those are) the areas the
investigation is still pursu-
ing," Lethbridge said.
Anyone with information
on the shooting or the alterca-
tion at the Hideaway Lounge
on June 6 is urged to call the
HCSO Criminal Investiga-
tions Unit at 402-7200.

munity," Bishop said.
"Fiscally neutral" means
that current residents would
pay for the new growth.
A throwback to the good
ol' days, Bishop said a "walk-
able, sustainable community,"
is one in which residents
could conduct most of their
business by walking, or riding
a bicycle, such as shopping,
going to school or attending
worship services.
"A lot of time, money has
been invested," McGrath
said, explaining Atlantic Blue
needed to move forward or
risk losing the value of data
as it ages.
Whatever transpires would
be market driven, she said,
and would occur in phases.
Each developmental phase
of a yet-to-be-named.to.wn on
land undetermined would be
tied to a phase of conserva-
tion.
As land is developed, a cor-
responding parcel would for-
ever be moved into conserva-
tion, she said.
Other lands, as with Rural
Land Stewardship, would
continue in its agriculture
role.
Should the commissioners
approve Atlantic Blue's large-
scale amendment request,.
McGrath said, the next step
would be drafting companion
land development code regu-
lations.
But, that's probably a year
or more away.
"It's an opportunity to do
some true, long-range com-
prehensive planning that puts
away conservation lands for-
ever," McGrath said.

an easy procedure, but it is
time consuming.
As Pedraza and Rodriguez
explain, a potential member
joins as a Prospect. If all
goes well, at the end of three
months the Prospect will be
voted on by the board to be
promoted to a Probate, at
which time the opportunity to
wear the LAMA rockers is
granted. If after another three
months, the Probate is voted
by the chapter to become a
full member, he or she will
then be granted the right to
wear the chapter's colors.
During this six-month period.
the chapter's board performs
a background check on the
potential member.
"We don't want any felons
involved and we're not going
to tolerate any trouble,"
Rodriguez said.
Like other motorcycle
groups, LAMA has had to
fighi the stigma of being
called a gang. "We are not a
gang. We fight that where
ever we are. You have to
look at what we do and who
we are. We are doctors, pro-
fessionals, lawyers, good
people ... we just like to ride
motorcycles," Rodriguez
said, adding that other motor-
cycle groups, run into the
same identity struggles.
LAMA's primary goal is to
help the community the chap-
ter is involved in. They are
planning a school supply
drive to help the less fortu-
nate children in Highlands
County be better prepared for
the 2008-09 school year.
Currently,. the group is try-
ing to raise money to attend
the national rally next month
in North Carolina. A car

Understanding


bank fees


Paying bills used to
be pretty cut-and-dried:
Each month, you'd sit
down with your check-
book, write a bunch of
checks and drop them
in the mail. Once in
awhile you might acci-
dentally bounce a
check because of a
math error or in
hopes that a deposit
would clear first. The
bank would deny pay-
ment; then you'd pay a
lesson.

fee and learn your


Today's payment landscape has
changed considerably. Debit cards, auto-
matic deductions and electronic bill pay-
ment are rapidly replacing paper checks
as the preferred payment method. And
banks are offering a whole new crop of
services and related fees and penalties -
you should know about.
Here are a few tips for traversing the
bill-payment landscape:
Balance your accounts. Tracking your
account's incoming and outgoing money is
more important than ever. Checks used to
take several days to clear so you'd have a
little wiggle room. Now many transactions
post immediately. Make sure you've got
enough money in your account to cover a
purchase or payment or it'll cost you.
Get in the habit of checking your
account balances every day at your bank's
Web site or toll-free number. It only takes
a moment and can tell you when a deposit
or automatic deduction has posted. It's
also ao great way to spot a check or debit
payment you forgot to enter in your check
register and to notice any fraudulent
activity on your account.
ATM surcharges. Many banks charge
a fee if you use another bank's ATM; and,

Tips to improve your credit score


Special to the News-Sunr
Have you heard the term "credit score"
before, but are unsure of what it actually is
and what this number stands for? With the
Summer home buying season upon us, many
consumers begin the process of searching for
their first home to purchase while others put
their current home up for sale and look for a
new house. Before you begin house shopping
with your Realtor, it is important to first learn
more about your credit score and how it
affects your ability to borrow money to
finance your new home


A credit ,score i .I deler-
'uinei d sc licnuil .r rurbr l'r tifrini

level of risk for repayment of
debt to a lender at the time of the
credit inquiry. Credit scores are based on a
consumer's current debt utilization, payment
history including mortgages, credit cards,
auto loans, bankruptcy filings and any other
public records, along with how long their
credit has been established and a mix of cred-


it types they are using. The number of
inquiries about their credit during the last 12
months may or may not be a factor influenc-
ing their credit score, depending on all the
other factors present in their credit file at the
time of the inquiry.
The Florida Association of Mortgage
Brokers (FAMB) recommends that consumers
meet with an experienced mortgage profes-


sional to disIcu,, ho, to
improve their crediil core and
profile. During ithe mineetinig itl

the following tips to improve their credit
score before purchasing the home of their
dreams.
All credit card balances should be paid to
below 30 percent of the available credit limit
on the card.
Do not consolidate credit card accounts
to one or two cards and close out other


accounts. Consolidation of your credit card
balances will noticeably distort the appear-
ance of your credit utilization. Having a low
balance on several credit cards is better than
having a high balance on one or two cards
where exceeding more than 30 percent of
your available credit limit would indicate you
were, a higher credit risk profile.
Keep your credit card accounts open and
active by using your cards at least once every
five months, even if it is for a tank of gas.
When you receive the bill for a credit card
you do not use that often, make sure to pay
the bill in full. Do not close accounts with-
out the advice of a knowledgeable mortgage
broker, as doing so may negatively impact the
b.il.ince of the variables weighed by the scor-
ing model in assessing your risk profile and
credit score.
Review your credit report for accuracy
at least 90-days before applying for a
mortgage. Have any inaccuracies report-
ed and have outdated information in
your credit file modified by that spe-
cific repository by sending them a
written dispute requesting the item
be reinvestigated and verified as to
its accuracy. You may want to ask
your mortgage broker how you go about
filing a written dispute with the appropriate
repository.
Have clear and concise documentation to
support your claim about why you are filing a
dispute request and mail that documentation
to the reporting repository with a return
receipt requested. The Fair Credit Reporting
Act states that the process to make necessary
modifications will take approximately 30

S idu.ils can obtain a free copy of their credit
report and profiles by contacting Equifax,
E\pe>iian or TransUnion at their respective
websites (www.equifax.com, www.exper-
ian.com, www.transunion.com).
Paying off a collection account or judg-
ment will not eliminate it from your credit
file. Paid or satisfied negative credit items
will show a zero balance, but will not disap-

FEES
Continued from 9A
they usually charge non-
account holders to use their
ATMs. A few suggestions:
Choose a bank with ATNMs
convenient to where you live
and work; join a credit union
that waives fees for affiliated
institutions' ATNMs: or use
your debit card to get cash
back on shopping transac-
tions. Just be sure to faithful-
ly enter all transactions in
your check register.
Be aware of overdrafts.
Overdraft protection is where
your bank covers your check
or transaction so it doesn't
bounce. Formerly, that pay-
ment probably would have
been denied unless you'd
signed an overdraft protec-
tion agreement where funds
would be transferred from a
linked credit line, credit card
or savings account.
Increasingly, many banks
will let such transactions go
through automatically.
This protection against
bounced checks often comes
with a price tag, however.
You may be charged up to
$35 per item and an addi-
tional daily fee for being
overdrawn. Consider signing
up for overdraft protection
linked to another account,
which may come with a
small annual fee. And try to
maintain a small cushion in
your account to protect
against arithmetic errors you
might make.
Sign up for alerts. Ask if
your bank provides free
phone or e-mail notices that
alert you when your balance
dips below a certain level,
when a check or deposit
clears, or when a payment is
due. These alerts can help
reduce what you pay in fees.
Bankrate.com has posted
numerous articles explaining
how overdraft and other
banking fees work, as well as
advice for how to avoid or
minimize them
(www.bankrate.com). The
site also includes a tool to
compare fees and other
checking account features at
different banks.
Another good resource for
learning about managing
your checking account and
debit card is Visa Inc.'s free
personal financial manage-
ment site, Practical Money
Skills for Life (www.practi-
calmoneyskills.com/bank-
ing).
Consult a financial profes-
sional about which type of
account best suits your par-
ticular situation. If you don't
know one, www.plan-
nersearch.org is a good place
to start your search.

SCORE
Continued from 9A
pear from youi credit file for
a seven-year period from the
occurrence of the negative
item. A late or collection
account will still be reflected
in your credit file even if it
has been paid off recently; as
it was late or did go to collec-
tion therefore it is accurately
reported.
As someone who has not
yet established credit or
whose credit score is consid-
ered low, there are new forms
of scoring credit to help those
with a blemished credit
record. New forms of credit
scoring use your payment
record on utility bills, rental


units and payday loans to
assess your ability to repay.
Even if your credit score is
"less, than prefect" as you
decide that homeownership is
right for you, talk with a
trusted financial advisor or
mortgage professional about
your financing options that
will best fit your financial
circumstances.

as well as Disabled American
Veterans representative John

representing their respective
units among the hundreds of
militarily affiliated groups
from all over the state of
Florida at the dedication of
the long awaited new
Sarasota VA Cemetery in the
countryside just west of
Myakka State Park on
Highway 72 on June 1.
The dedication ceremony
was delayed by about 20 min-
utes to let the rest of the rep-
resentation arrive, which was
backed up all the way to 1-75.
The program included retired
war heroes, state and national
leaders, active military,
Sarasota County officials and
the U.S. Navy Band.
The first interments are to
begin later this year and will
fill a pressing need, as many
of the VA Cemeteries in the
state of Florida are either full
already or nearing capacity.
There are more than 20,000
veterans living in Highlands
County.

Music for the Troops
Program stalled
LAKE PLACID Placid
Post 25 collected and boxed
more- than 8,000 music CDs
to send to our troops over-
seas. This constituted over 80
APO shipping boxes at a cost
of around $11 each.
Post members have asked
for addresses and monies to
ship these out to wherever
troops are. They have collect-
ed enough money and gotten
addresses to ship out approxi-
mately half of what there is
on hand. A total of $183 was
raised from the local Legion
members and the Veterans
Service Council of Highlands
County provided another
$300.
Anyone having a service-
man overseas that provides us
with an APO address is eligi-
ble to have at least one box
and possibly more if a com-
pany is involved shipped. It
will take around $400 to ship
the rest of what has been col-
lected and boxed.
Donations or requests
should be directed to the

Veteran Services Office
administrative assistant, as an


press releases and letters
written on behalf of the
WAVES.
The WAVES originated
more than 60 years ago as the
name referred to women in
the Navy, Women Accepted
for, Volunteer Emergency
Services. Their service to the
Navy, whether in supplies,
clerical, or medical assistant,
allowed a man to be replaced
from that capacity and go to
war. It is often hard to
remember women did not go
"to sea" 60 years ago.

Press Club hears about vets'

benefits from VA Secretary a


Special to the News-Sun
Veteran Affairs Secretary
Dr. James B. Peake, just five
months after taking his oath
of office for the nation's sec-
ond-largest Cabinet depart-
ment, spoke before the mem-
bers of the National Press
Club on May 21, expressing
his priorities regarding the
veterans. He addressed his
plans on the transition
process of the VA to meet the
needs of veterans today as
well as those of future gener-
ations.
Peake, a Vietnam veteran
and former Army surgeon
general, reported his focus for
"providing a better transition
of care, enabling more effi-
cient claims processing,
leveraging information tech-
nology and poising the
department for the future,"
according to the Florida
Department of Veteran Affairs
Web page.
According to Peake, the
focus of his department
should be on assisting the sol-
diers returning from overseas
to be able to become func-
tioning participants in our
society, as well as become
actively reunited with their
family members, with their
employers, and in their com-
munities.
Since the beginning of
Operations Iraqi Freedom and
Enduring Freedom, some
837,000 combat veterans,
have discharged or retired
from the military and are now
veterans. Peake wants to
those veterans who qualify to
be able to utilize the VA's
resources such as compensa-
tion, medical treatment, reha-
bilitation and educational
benefits.
Peake is working with his
department to complete a
streamlining process for the
department's claims process-
ing. This' process is currently
a cumbersome and complicat-
ed system. Once approved for
a disability through the
claims process, the veteran is
then eligible for many servic-
es within the department.
To facilitate the streamlin-
ing process, the VA is adding
more than 3,000 people to its
existing 263,000-person work
force to help process disabili-
ty claims.
Utilizing the current tech-
nology at hand will eliminate
the time in processing claims.
Peake reports that the VA has
termed the "best electronic
medical record" system avail-
able. He would also like to
see the development of part-
nerships with other depart-
ments and federal agencies to
assist in the streamlining


efforts.
VA must consider the needs
of each generation of veter-
ans, Peake said. The veterans
from World War 11 have dif-
ferent needs at the current
time than the Vietnam veter-
ans or the Operation Iraqi
Freedom veterans. Each
group needs
different types
of services
Sand interven-
tions, and
each individ-
ual veteran
needs will dif-
Peak7 fer, depending
upon where the veteran is in
their own life.
The VA cannot just look at
today and today's veterans
when making changes.. When
looking at VA and the veter-
ans served 30-40 years from
now, the vision will be differ-
ent. The VA needs to be con-
sidering how to handle the
changes that will come about
for the next 60 years.

Pause and
Consider
Jan Merop


Growing

gracefully
When we watch for signs
of life from seeds we've
planted; or we check on the
buds on a flowering bush or
tree, we're not able to see
what is happening. The
progress is beyond what our
natural eye can capture.
But, each day there is
progress and we delight in
it.
However, isn't it fasci-
nating that a camera can
capture the 'slow motion' of
budding flowers and plants
popping up from the
ground. It's like we're
given a pair of glasses that
allows us to see what was
invisible to our naked eye
before.
And yet, it is happening
whether we can see it or
not.
Even the growth of a
baby into a toddler and then
a little child and so forth
happens before our eyes;
and, still is hidden. Looking
back at baby pictures of our
children and watching the
changes through pictures
still amazes us.
Seedlings and flowers,
fruit bearing trees and chil-
dren have something in
common. They grow grace-
fully as they were created
to do.
You don't hear a crocus
groaning as it pushes
through the soil and snow
that is encrusted above it.
An orange doesn't grunt as
it pushes forth from the
sweet-smelling blossom.
Nor do children cry out as
the wobbly limbs of a tod-
dler become sure footed
legs that enable them to run
and jump.
But sometimes it seems
we live our lives through
the gritted teeth of determi-
nation and constant effort.
We have forgotten how to
let life flow through us.
Perhaps that's because we
have forgotten to let the
Giver of life be our center
and live out of the overflow
of his life in us.
Jesus said in John 7:38,
NIV, that if anyone is
thirsty, they should come to
him and drink. He contin-
ued to say that whoever
believes in him, as the
Scripture has said, "streams
of living water will flow
from within him."
Jesus was talking about
the Holy Spirit who
indwells believers. When
we receive him we have
life that overflows. We have
strength when ours falters.
We have courage even
through our fears and his
joy to encourage others.
Therefore, when assailed
by the stresses of life,
remember that stress relief
is just a prayer away. The
Holy Spirit will replace
stress with his calm reassur-
ance that God is in control.
Grunts and groans disap-
pear when a smile replaces
gritting teeth in accomplish-
ing his purposes.
We'll be like that tree in
Psalm 1 that is planted by
streams of water yielding
fruit in season. Without
realizing it, we'll grow
gracefully as we're
refreshed to refresh others.

Teach children to respect life and the world will benefit


Some children seem to be born with a
compassionate spirit that reaches out to
all things living.
They are the ones who bring home
stray dogs, cats or birds with injured
wings. They reach out to children who
may be handicapped or just in need of a
friend. By the time they're in college,
they have a heart for lonely classmates
and invite them home during a break.
Sometimes, this trait isn't quite as
inbred ... but it is still a quality to be
taught and acquired.
It can happen through caring for a
garden; family pets; opening our homes
to friends and acquaintances. We can
provide a meal and place to sleep.
When we were married 26 years ago
and enfolded our two families into one,
a youth group puppet team we knew
visited our church. Our sons were 10, 9
and 6.
What fun for our boys to have this
whole team camp out in sleeping bags
in our living and dining rooms and then
minister at our church. It was just the
beginning of having our kids care about
and appreciate others while learning
hospitality.


When the boys had pet rabbits caged
in our yard, they fed them, cleaned the
cages and gave them affection. One
morning, when the screams from our
youngest drew us to the bay window
looking out on the backyard, we could-
n't imagine what we'd find.
Three dead rabbits were strewn across
the grass. A couple of large dogs were
noticed in the distance guilty culprits
that forced our boys to see the fragility
of life. And, so, we learned as a family
to mourn when life was snatched away.
Years later while hiking in Colorado
with our son.who is a rescuer with the
fire department, I noticed some pretty
wildflowers. As I bent to pick one, our
son said gently, "Leave it there so some-
one else can enjoy it."
He was right and I was glad for the

reminder. So we took a picture and left
the flower to grow and bless others.
When parents regard life with caring
concern, children will do likewise. If we
trample flowers, ignore human needs
and suffering or not see the beauty in
wildlife, we teach them something that
robs them of an essence that nourishes
their souls.
From their earliest years, we have
wonderfulopportunities to cultivate
kindness, appreciation and protective
traits in our children. Sometimes it is
an uphill battle against natural tenden-
cies of selfishness. But, it is)a goal
worth pursuing and achieving..
The Bible says in James 1:17, NKJV,
"Every good gift ... is from above, and
comes down from the Father of Lights,
with whom there is no variation or shad-
ow of turning."
When we help our children see all of
life as a good gift from the hand of a
loving Father God, they will respect,
defend and nurture life in every form.
And the world will be a better place.

Area 6 Florida Conservation District's meeting hosted by HSWCD -.mo


Back in the 1930s, farming
practices were different than
they are today. The Dust
Bowl, or the "dirty 30s" as it
was nicknamed, was a time orl
severe ecological and agricul-v
tural damage to America's
prairie lands. It was, for the
most part, a man-made disas-
ter caused by decades of deep
plowing and farming without
crop rotation.
The result was that the land
had no natural grasses to keep
the soil in place and when a
drought occurred during that
time, the soil dried up and
turned to dust. Winds kicked
up and blew the dust east and
south.
Even though the disaster
took place in the Great Plains,
cities such as New York and
Washington D.C. were affect-
ed with huge, black clouds
blackening the sky. The Dust
Bowl consisted of 100 million
acres, centered on the panhan-
dles of Texas, Oklahoma,
New Mexico, Colorado, and
Kansas.
Because the disaster was
caused mainly by years of


sustained drought
and misuse of the
land, it became obvi-
outs to politicians as
well as farmers that
soil conservation was
a critical issue. As a
result. Soil and Water
Conservation dis-
tricts were created
nationwide, generally
one per county.
In Florida, there
are 63 Soil and Water

tricts. An organization called
the Association of Florida
Conservation Districts was
put in place to assist Florida's
conservation districts accom-
plish what they could not
accomplish individually.
AFCD is a nonprofit organi-
zation made up of an elected
governing body. It provides
information and support serv-
ices to the conservation dis-
tricts in the sunshine state.
On May 28, the Highlands
Soil and Water Conservation
District had the privilege of
hosting the annual Area 6
AFCD meeting.


Highlands
Independent Bank
generously spon-
sored the event,
which was held at
the Lake Placid
Conference Center.
Over 60 people from
all over the state
attended the meet-
ing. Included on the
guest list were
Highlands, Glades,
Hendry, Indian
River, Martin, -


Okeechobee, Palm Beach,
South Dade and St. Lucie Soil
and Water Conservation dis-
tricts. Also the AFCD and
Natural Resources
Conservation Services staff
was present and gave their
annual updates.
The meeting started off
with HSWCD's own board
supervisor, Gregg Hartt, wel-
coming our guests. Leroy
Crockett from Resource
Conservation and
Development gave a presenta-
tion on Perennial Peanut, and
Michelle Thatcher, AFCD
executive director, gave a talk


on creative funding.
The new NRCS State
Conservationist, Carlos
Suarez, was introduced. He
shared that his goals include
focusing on conservation
planning for the producers
and addressing the water,
quantity issues that we all
face. He asked that the indi-
vidual conservation districts
address local issues in their
areas. We are very excited to
move forward under the new
leadership and have hopes
that, as a group, the conserva-
tion districts in Florida can
resolve some of the chal-
lenges that are faced today.
A Share Fair in the after-
noon included HSWCD's Erin
McCarta's, Lakes
Management assistant,
overview of the Lake Jackson
Restoration Project and its
funding. Scott Kuipers of
Okeechobee Soil and Water
spoke about Tropical Soda
Apple beetles and their exper-
imentation with pest manage-
ment. Morgan Levy of South

information about the differ-

ent types of composters and
soil amendments available.
Highlands Soil and Water had
a composer and rain barrel
display.
The meeting was a good
chance for all of the Soil and
Water Conservation districts
to get together, network and
share ideas. With so much
diversity and so many unique
natural resources in Florida,
it's always good to have the


opportunity to glean new, cre-
ative ideas from our peers.
The Highlands Soil and Water
Conservation District staff is
thankful to be a part of the
AFCD. It is good to know that
we have such great support.'

Eddie Money to hit SFCC stage June 27

Hits include 'Two Tickets to Paradise,' 'Take Me Home Tonight'


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK South
Florida Community College is
gearing up for its annual
Summer Series concert featur-
ing American rock and roll
legend Eddie Money. The
concert will be held at 7:30
p.m. Friday, June 27, in the
SFCC Auditorium, Highlands
Campus. All proceeds from
this concert benefit the SFCC
Auditorium Renovation Fund.
Money has been making
music and delivering it to his
fans since the mid-1970s, and
wouldn't have it any other
way.
With hits like "Take Me
Home Tonight," "Two Tickets
To Paradise," "Baby Hold
On," "Walk On Water,"
"Think I'm In Love," "I
Wanna Go Back," and
"Shakin." he continues to be
one of the hardest working
men in rock and roll.
His musical style is charac-
terized by his recognizable
vocals, catchy melodies, and
his numerous MTV music
videos throughout the 1980s
which can be viewed on his
Web site www.eddie
money.com..


Swallow-tailed

Kite a special

'specialty bird'

Welcome to our roost!
People who are interested in
watching birds, as a hobby,
sport, or fun activity, are
called "birders." We are
happy to be thus classified.
Birders from other states
(and countries) usually want
to see those species that are
either restricted to Florida or
are easier to find here.
Florida is the only state
where the Crested Caracara,
Burrowing Owl and Scrub
Jay may be seen. On a list of
30 "specialty" birds birds
regularly seen in Florida at
certain times of the year is
the American Swallow-tailed
Kite, (Elanoides forticatus)
our subject bird, today.
Without a doubt, this rap-
tor is one of the world's most
beautiful birds. The deeply
forked tail, contrasting black
and white plumage and
graceful, often acrobatic
flight sets this bird apart
from all others. Swallow-tails
are still quite abundant in
Florida and are seen on a
regular basis here in
Highlands County. As a mat-
ter of interest, there is a
rather large rookery close to
Fisheating Creek. That rook-
ery would have been in grave
danger had the coal-fired
electric plant been allowed to
be built in Glades County.
Environmental activities can
be happy that Florida Power
and Light bowed out of that
proposal.


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Crafter of the Month for June
2008 at the Caladium Arts
aand Crafts Cooperative in
Lake Placid is Jan
Schoonover.
Schoonover was a member
of the co-op when it first
opened. Now that she has
retired she has the time to
rejoin and become an active
member.
Presently she is involved in
doing machine embroidery


Over 20 of his songs have
reached the top 100 charts. He
has recorded over a dozen
albums and has completed
numerous projects in televi-
sion and film.
After following in his
father's footsteps and training
to be a police officer in Long
Island, N.Y. in the early
1970s, Money began to take
an interest in music. He sang
in his first
band, Grapes
of Wrath, and
eventually
gave up his
law enforce-
ment career
altogether in
Money favor of
becoming a
musician.
He moved to Berkeley,
Calif. and became a regular at
area clubs, where he eventual-
ly got enough attention to
secure a recording contract
with Columbia Records.
A student of legendary
vocal coach Judy Davis and
prodigy of manager Bill
Graham, Money began belting
out hit after hit. The early
days of MTV and music


projects. Among the items she
embroideries are shirts and
hats. Bride and groom hats
are a speciality of hers and are
really cute. She is always try-
ing new items and is working
on doing some logos on cloth-
ing.
If you have a favorite piece
of clothing that you would
like to liven up a little,
Schoonover can help cus-
tomize it.
Schoonover has many
interests other than crafting.


videos launched Eddie Money
into stardom. An accom-
plished musician, he sings, he
writes, and plays the saxo-
phone, harmonica, and piano.
The concert is sponsored by
Bill and Lisa Jarrett; Dr. and
Mrs. Norman L. Stephens, Jr;
Gene and Jo Brenner of
Brenner Pottery; Affordable

Birds And Other
Wild Things
Hank and Ruth Kowalski
The nesting season for
Swallow-tails extends from
late March through June
when two eggs are laid in a
good-sized nest, placed high
in a tree. Lizards, grasshop-
pers and even snakes are
taken by this bird. Being a
raptor, a meal may include a
baby bird snatched out of an
unguarded nest! That's why
you will see a Swallow-tail
being harassed by smaller
birds, such .as Mockingbirds,
Crackles and Fish Crows.
Incubation is mostly by the
female and takes 28 days.
The young are tended by the
female, while the male brings
the food. Youngsters will
leave the nest at 36-42 days
and are still dependent upon
parents at least two weeks
after leaving the nest.
The state's population is
estimated at 500-800 pairs,


which makes up most of the
United States population. The
birds form communal roosts
in late summer, before
migrating out of the country.
According to ornithologist
Ken Meyer, that roost men-
tioned previously in Glades
County has held up to 2,200
birds at once and up to 3,000
birds in season! Radio-
tagged individuals from the
Orlando area have been
satellite-tracked to South
America and back.
Until next time, we wish
you good birding and hope
you will enjoy all the beauty
of creation and its marvelous
diversity.

Ruth and Hank live in Lake
Placid and are members of the
Audubon Society. They are gradu-
ates of the Dr Reed Bowman
Bird Study Course, given at
SFCC and have years of experi-
ence peering through scopes and
binoculars, trying to identify that
certain bird! E-mail them at
ruthnhankwildbird@htn. net.

Sebring Dixie Pitching Machine Tournament



Sebring National takes Pitching Machine opener


News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE
'Sebring first baseman Brendan Melvin (99) waits for the ball as Avon Park All-Star Tyson Bentley (8) tries to beat out the
throw during the first game of the Dixie Youth Pitching Machine All-Star Tournament in Sebring on Friday night.


By ED BALDRIDGE
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING It was a battle
of three-foot titans..
Names like Ramos and'
Tomblin from Avon Park
faced off against Bickman,
Gaines, and Acosta hailing
from Sebring.
Names that know baseball,
names that are serious about
winning, and names that
strike fear in opponents on the
diamond.
When the dust had settled,
it was Sebring
Nationals who came Nati
out on top, defeating
the Avon Park All-Stars .
5-2 in the first game of R
the Dixie Youth All-S
Pitching Machine
Tournament at Max
Long Field on Friday
night.
The pitcher went the entire
game, never tiring and never
giving an inch.
Although Avon Park would
bat first, it was Sebring slug-
gers who drew the first
scores.
Jared Smith would drive in
Josh Rivera on a base hit and
an error, and Andrew Carney,
who would be left on base by
the merciless mechanical

s

pitcher, would pick-up an
RBI off of his base hit when
he batted in Smith.
Three more from Avon
Park would fall to the ever
spinning wheel on the mound
in the top, of the second, but
an undaunted Jonathon
Acosta would bat one around
for Sebring, and later score
off of an Avon Park error.
Avon Park would convert
the goose egg on the score-
board in the top of the fourth
when All-Star Josh Ramos
achieved an inside-
nals the-park homer, but
his teammates would
again fall victim to the
fast ball from their
;tars steel nemesis on the
mound.
Scoring two more in
the bottom half of the
inning, Sebring's Justin
Bickman brought Brenden
Melvin home with a triple,
and Acosta picked up another
RBI when he batted Melvin
in, but Acosta would also be
left stranded by the ball-
chucking machine.
Avon Park's Jacob Regino
would stuff one up the middle
to bring home teammate

,Draft rewards and an award for one of my drafts


T The day that those'of us
at the FACA All-Star
Classic at Firemen's Field a
couple weeks ago had been
waiting for arrived Thursday
with the start of the Major
League Baseball Amateur
Draft.
And those of us looking
for names of players we
beared witness to during that
weekend weren't disappoint-
ed as eight players who were
on hand at the Classic were
selected during the drafts'
first seven rounds four in
the first three rounds alone.
Eric Hosmer of American
Heritage and Casey Kelly of
Sarasota High School both
went in.the first round, to the
Royals and Red Sox respec-
tively, with Hosmer going
with the third overall pick.
-Brett Devall of Niceville
was next off the board in the
second round to the Braves
and Tampa-Sickles' Kenny


"" .^. .J '
And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

Wilson went in the third to
the Blue Jays.
The Washington Nationals
,were the next team to have
liked what they saw in
Sebring, taking Graham
Hicks of George Jenkins and
Adrian Nieto of American
Heritage with the first picks
in both the fifth and sixth
rounds.
Toronto was at it again,
obviously pleased with


SFCC product Jesse Litsch's
success, taking Tyler
Pastornicky of Pendleton in
the sixth round and Marcus
Brisker of Winter Haven in
the seventh.
Great news for all those
players who now get to
work their way up through
the minors and the long bus
rides with six figure sign-
ing bonuses to help cushion
their seats.
Received some good news
myself Friday, and it took a
bit of a ride as well.
The annual Florida Press
Association awards ceremo-
ny was held at the Disney
Hilton.
I had received the word a
few weeks ago that a column
I had written in '07 had made
it to the top four, but I had to
go to the ceremony to find
out in which place I finished.
We also were top four in
Best Sports Section/Page,


but that was from an issue
when former Sports Editor
Scott Drcssel was still run-
ning the show, so I couldn't
lay too much claim to that
one.
So I drove up to Disney,
had a nice dinner, gabbed
with some fellow newspaper
folk and awaited the awards
presentation.
The categories came up
pretty quick, and I realized
my heart was racing.
Partly because this was
the first time I was going to
get any kind of award, but
also because I didn't want to
be fourth of the top four.
It was an honor to be in
the top four, don't get me
wrong, because part of the
judging was done by
University of Florida pro-
fessors and editors from
both the New York and
Pennsylvania Press

Veley moving up, Williams moving on


News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE
Lake Placid's Conlin Veley will be taking his jumpers at
Florida Southern next season.


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.coim
Lake Placid's Conlin Veley
will be taking his game to
another level this year as he
has accepted a scholarship to
Florida Southern University.
"He's received an academic
scholarship," former head
coach Levi Williams said.
"But he is a full-fledged
member of', the basketball
team and will have a chance
to work toward an athletic
scholarship as well."
Veley will be the second
student-athlete that Williams
has played a part in helping
reach the next level, with for-
mer Green Dragon Jovonni
Shuler playing at Savannah
State University.
"That's what it's all about,"
Williams said. "Giving kids
opportunities."
Veley, who's 3.96 grade
point average certainly has
the brains to make the most of
his academic ride and will
major in Sports Medicine.
But Williams also sees
what he needs to do, and can
do, to make the most of his

court.


'That's what it's

all about. Giving
kids

opportunities.'

LEVI WILLIAMS
Former Lake Placid coach

"He'll be a great addition
to Florida Southern," he said.
"He needs- to fine tune some
things and get accustomed to
the speed and talent at that
level.
"But he's a smart kid, a
great athlete and a hard work-
er," Williams added. "With
time, he'll get where he needs
to be."
Williams himself is moving
on, as he will be moving to
the Atlanta area to teach and
coach.
"It was just time for a
change of scenery, a change
of direction," he said. "I real-
ly appreciate Lake Placid for
what it was during my time
here. There are great people
and great kids that will make
for some nice memories."

SEBRING A new annual
golf, tournament has been
added to the docket of
Highlands County as the First
Annual Jacob Casey
Scholarship and Educational
Fund tourney teed off at
Harder Hall Saturday morn-
ing.
Casey spent his childhood
growing up in Avon Park,
where father Brian was a
native of as well.
After moving to Ocala,
Jacob played on the state
champion Trinity Catholic
football team with current
Gator backup quarterback
John Brantley.
A tragic car accident took
the too-young Jacob and in a
memorial for his son, Brain
Casey looked back to his


roots as well as his boy's pas-
sion 'for athletics.
"This is a non-profit tour-
nament," Casey said. "All the
funds raised here will go to
underprivileged youth here in
Highlands County."
Area resident, and uncle of
Ja'cob, Chad, will be part of a
group that will look for and
decide on where each year's
funds will go.
"It will deal with student-
athletes," he said. "Whether
it's the Dixie League that may
need bats or any team or
organization that we can
hlcp."
Jacob's former teammate,
Brantley joined in the effort,
coming down to play and
bringing three Gator team-
mates along with.

it comes down to who has the

Today in sports history


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
Did you know that on this
date, June 8, back in 1955 the
Dodgers optioned Tommy
Lasorda to make room on the
major league club for Sandy
Koufax?
As a manager, Lasorda
would prove to be another
great in the line of Dodger
head men, but in this case, it
was best for the, then,
Brooklyn, Dodgers to part
ways with him for the left-
hander who would have as
dominant a run as has ever
been seen in the game.
It was 11 years later, on
June 8, 1966 that the rival
NFL and AFL announced
plans to merge and become
the NFC and AFC as part of a
collective new NFL.
So they decided on it, but it
was four more years before
they did anything about it.
The next year, the first
reduced-gravity golf game
was played on the moon and
two years later on June 8,
major league baseball players
and management ended a
labor dispute and upped the


minimum salary to $12,000
per year.
Word is, that first tee shot
from the Frau mora Highlands
has been soaring ever since -
as have baseball salaries.
In '82 and '86, the Lakers
and Celtics won the NBA
championships, respectively.
Since today will feature
game two of this year's title
series, it's only slightly
longer than it was more than
20 years ago.
In their words, the NBA
playoffs have taken forever,
forever.
In 1991, former New York
Jet Mark Gastineau won is
first professional boxing
match in 12 seconds against
what some seem to recall was
a literal tomato can.
And one year later, Yankee
pitcher Steve Howe was
banned from baseball for vio-
lating the league's drug poli-
cy for the seventh time.
So, he'd had six strikes
against him two strikeouts -
and he was still available for
a seventh.
And we thought baseball
was only a mess recently.

Baseball Camp Friday morning. The camp helps teach fundamentals of the game to
aspiring players aged 6-13, such as the proper mechanics of setting up and following
through a throw, as seen in one of the early drills.

AWARD
Continued from 1C
Associations.
It's just that, if you know
you're already in the top
four, and get fourth, you
essentially came in last.
I guess I still have some of
the competitor in me.
My anxiousness was alle-
viated. as my column fin-
ished third, as did the section
in the other category.
So I had the third best
sports column of '07 in the
state of Florida among non-
daily newspapers with a cir-
culation between 7.000 and
15,000.
Again, I'm pleased and
honored to the nth degree -
and yet I can't help but think
it's kind of like one of those


crazy baseball stats.
Like being the third best
hitter after the seventh inning
of a road night game with
your team down one run.


I didn't receive any
plaques or trophies.
But at least I was handed a
nice certificate to help cushion
my seat on the drive home.

Charles Kovaleski

Dream homes become
nightmares for buyers
when builders file for
bankruptcy
A dream home can
become a house of horrors
overnight if your builder
goes bankrupt. With the
collapse of subprime
mortgages that had helped
fuel housing starts, that
scenario is becoming a
reality for consumers
across the country as the
housing market continues
its tumble.
Builder bankruptcies
can halt or indefinitely
delay construction -
meaning buyers can't
move in, customers stand
to lose thousands in
deposit money and con-
sumers get stuck in a con-
tract with no house to
show for their troubles.
In November, Levitt &
Sons of Fort Lauderdale
filed for Chapter 11 bank-
ruptcy protection. The
Levitt Corp. unit, which is
in default on more than
$300 million in loans,
stopped construction of 11
active-adult communities
in Florida, Georgia and
South Carolina.
Levitt joined a growing
list of builders who have
either filed for bankruptcy
protection or have closed

ing in your listing can be the
key to attracting potential
buyers. According to the 2008
MSN article, "What's "beauti-


ful' worth? About $12,500"
researchers have found that
listings with the words "beau-
tiful" or "gorgeous" sold
homes 15 percent faster,
while "landscaping" bumped
sales 20 percent faster and
"move-in condition" expedit-
ed the sale by 12 percent.
Contrary to popular belief,
sellers should steer clear of
words that highlight despera-
tion such as "motivated" and
"must sell." The study found
the inclusion of those words
in the listing slowed sales by
up to 30 percent.
Brand names create a point


of differentiation and should
be used as selling points for
your home. There is no doubt
that buyers will put more
weight in brands they trust. If
choosing to make upgrades
before listing your home, con-
sider quality, recognizable
products because they will
ultimately provide the best
return.
"Our premier lines of hard-
wood flooring are appearing
in listings along with top
name appliances," says Tom
Sullivan, chairman and
founder of Lumber
Liquidators.

their doors. Other recent
bankruptcies include Elliott
Building Group in
Pennsylvania, Turner-Dunn
Homes Inc. in Arizona, Kara
Homes Inc. in New Jersey
and Neumann Homes Inc. in
Illinois.
When the housing market
went bust in the early 1990s,
nearly 15 percent of home
builders closed. During that
time frame, the companies
filing for bankruptcy includ-
ed Reston, Va.-based NVR
Inc. and US Home Corp. of
Houston, now part of
Miami's Lennar Corp. Those
filings were in the minority,
according to the National
Association of Home
Builders, which said that
many cash-strapped builders
simply closed.
At the peak of the most
previous boom, builders con-
structed more than 2 million
housing units nationwide in
2005. In 2007, housing starts
fell to an annual rate of 1.2
million.
While some builders like
Centex Corp. and Pulte


Homes will try to ride a strat-
egy of unloading inventory at
bargain prices, cutting jobs
and forgoing growth plans,
the atmosphere surrounding
residential real estate could
trigger even more bankruptcy
filings by builders.
For buyers, a builder's
bankruptcy potentially leads
to many issues, including:
Losing all or part of
their deposits.
Uncertainty about the
completion of unfinished
homes.
Failing to receive serv-
ice on builder-backed home
warranties.
Finding liens imposed
on their homes by unpaid
contractors.
Waiting for roads and
amenities like swimming
pools, tennis courts or club-
houses to be built.
While it may too late for
customers who already have
homes under construction,
potential buyers can take
steps to protect themselves
against a potential bankrupt-
cy filings by having their real
estate attorney insert a so-
called "springing provision"
into their contract with the
builder.


The clause would "spring"
into effect and protect the
buyer in the event a builder
declares bankruptcy.
Standard contracts often pro-
vide buyers no such protec-
tion, which is why an attor-
ney is an essential part of
this type of transaction.
Of course, while your
attorney might draft the pro-
vision, the details and
whether the builder will
accept the terms still must be
negotiated into the contract.
Acceptance is not a given.
However, properly drafted,
the provision can protect the
buyer from financial loss if
the builder has allowed a
third party to act as an
escrow agent for the deposit.
Still, the buyer could stand to
lose if money from construc-
tion draws were not used to
build something on the
buyer's land.
Those in the market to
have a house built from
scratch should evaluate all
their positions, including the
potential that their builder
goes bust.

five finalists are pictured here.



Lake Placid High School students


fare well with Realtor scholarships

Lake Placid Board of Realtors
LAKE PLACID -
President-elect Brittany
Phypers was on hand at the
Lake Placid High School
Scholarship Awards ceremony
on May 19 to present scholar-
ship checks on behalf of the
Lake Placid Board of Realtors
and the Florida Association of'
Realtors.
Sean Casey, son of Realtor
Adela and husband Dan, was
awarded a $ 1,000 cash schol-
arship by the Lake Placid
Board of Realtors. Sean
received a number of other,
awards as well, including
South Florida Comnmunity
College's Top 10 percent
award and a partial scholar-
ship to Sean's college of
choice, the University of
South Florida.


Finalist Jessica Coury,
Lake Placid High School's
Salutorian, also has a connec-
tion to the LPBOR. She is the
niece and personal assistant to
Realtor Debbie McCullough.
Jessica was also honored with
additional awards from a vari-
ety of organizations such as
the Academic Boosters,
Highlands County
Cattlewomens' Association,
Mid-Florida Federal Credit
Union, Rob Reynolds'
Memorial Scholarship, the
morning Rotary Club), SFCC
Top 10 percent award,
,Salutatorian Award, and a par-
tial scholarship to her chosen
college, also USF.
The Florida Association of
Realtors awarded a $1,500
cash scholarship to Ashley
Preston as one of the three
winners in FAR's District 10
essay scholarship contest out


of dozens of submissions,
which includes Polk and
Highlands counties.
There were five finalists for
the Lake Placid Board of
Realtors' scholarship, and the
Scholarship Committee found
it extremely difficult to first
narrow the field of 13 appli-
cants to only five finalists,
and even harder to select a
single winner. After making a
decision, the committee asked
the finalists to present their
essays to the general member-
ship at the LPBOR monthly
lunch meeting, and surprised
the finalists with a $50 gift
for each.
Officers, directors, mem--
bers and staff of the Lake
Placid Board of Realtors take
great pride in congratulating
each of these extraordinary
seniors for their remarkable
accomplishments.

Decor tips to create a





senior-friendly home


WALTHAM, Mass. Few
things matter more to an
aging parent than maintaining
their lifestyle, safety and
independence and when it
comes to home d6cor, the
right interior design decisions
will go a long way towards
supporting all three.
Whether you're inviting an
elderly parent to live with
you, or are helping an older
relative adjust their living
space to accommodate chang-
ing needs and abilities, Davis
Remignanti, lead design con-
sultant, offers these practical
home decorating ideas to help
make any living space more
"senior-friendly:"
Clear the path Clear
away items small home
accessories, plants, magazine
racks that clutter pathways
or require individuals to walk
around to avoid.
Accommodate wheelchairs or
walkers by allowing at least
36 inches between objects.
Easily plan room designs
with an interactive room
planner.
Create a sanctuary For
a senior who shares a home
with family members, their
only personal space is often
the bedroom. In it, create a
"sanctuary" that calms, cen-
ters and energizes by allow-
ing space for favorite pas-
times, enjoying personal
media, or otherwise catching
some quiet time. Choose a


bed that offers easy access
(onto and off) along with
appropriate support and com-
fort.
0 Color their world Turn
to color to open-up and
enliven small spaces. Whites
and light neutral colors,
along with blues, greens and
violets (in light values) help
rooms appear larger. To assist
with visibility, consider home
furnishings 'in hues that con-
trast against their back-
grounds.


Light it up Ease the
strain on older eyes with
plenty of lighting options.
Give special attention to
areas used for detailed work,
like reading and hobbies. Use
wall switches at room entry
points to control lighting.
Easy storage Provide
adequate, easily accessible
storage that doesn't require
reaching, bending or strain-
ing. Choose dressers and
wardrobes with large or D-
loop handles that don't


require fine finger dexterity.
Many children's dressers fea-
ture easy-rolling guides and
built-in safety stops.
Work the kitchen -
Create a seated work area for.
food preparation tasks. A
small table and chair in a
comfortable location, with
nearby access to utensils, is a
good solution.
Support at dinner -
Consider investing in dining
chairs-that provide good back
support and have strong, stur-
dy arms. Seat cushioning
adds comfort, but should be
securely fitted to the chair.
Blend and compromise
- Respect is the watchword
when integrating any rela-
tive's home furniture into
your own home design.
Compromise when faced with
the question of placing a
well-loved but less-than-
decor-complementary piece
in the living room. If it's a .
definite "no." get creative.
Instead, reserve a corner for
it in the senior's bedroom.
"Remember that the goal in
redesigning a living space for
senior use is to enable that
senior to maintain her free-
dom within a safe, comfort-
able and friendly living envi-
ronment Remignanti
advised. "Communication is
crucial. Share opinions and
ideas and create the solu-
tion together."


The key to healthy aging for men

It's no secret men are living longer, working later into life
and taking on more roles than ever before. Understandably,
men are also looking to .improve and prolong their health and
happiness with preventive steps to achieve a higher quality of
life. And with notions of age changing rapidly, the best way to
stay healthy is to focus on the whole body.
"Men of past generations invoked a 'fix what's broken' men-
tality and that mindset is as ineffective for health as it is for a
car," says Dr. Marcus Laux, a naturopathic physician and
health science advisor to LIFE SPAN labs. "Physical, emotion-
al and sexual well-being are all interconnected and a whole-
body approach is the best way to ensure a man's health is run-
ning on all cylinders."
Dr. Laux offers the following tips to keep men aging
healthy:
Weigh your options Getting your weight under con-
trol can go a long way in improving your overall health. It
takes pressure off of the cardiovascular system, as well as
joints. Men with a waist 42-inches or more are also at a 50
percent greater risk for diminished sexual ability. Practice the
rewards of eating to live and you will live well at a healthy
weight.
Move like your life depends on it Exercise is nature's
champion of health. It lowers stress, strengthens the body's
ability to repair itself, supports healthy blood flow and it can
even help improve your mood. Regular exercise is best, so
make sure you incorporate enjoyable activities and mix up

Smoking is a smoking
gun Smoking not only
exposes you to seemingly
endless documented health
risks, but it is also one of the
most adverse factors in sexu-
al health. It only takes two
cigarettes a day to negatively
affect your drive, and that's
not taking into account the
unpleasant breath and dulled
smile incurred by regular
smoking.
Reconnect with your

single counterparts, and an
invigorating relationship can
add even more joy to those

been spent putting the family


before your relationship with
your partner, re-embrace the
importance of anniversaries,
date nights and other roman-

about improving sexual
health, an issue that's com-
mon as we age.
It takes dedication to stay
in good physical condition,
watch what you eat and
drink, get plenty of rest and
manage stress in your life.
However, committing to even
a few simple changes can
significantly improve your
physical, emotional and sexu-

outdoor activities to get you
started, it's the perfect time
to get on track and in the

Beyond the pill bottle: Alternative arthritis therapies


Opening a pill bottle brings
the promise of relief from
pain for many people. But for
41 percent of the 46 million
Americans diagnosed with
arthritis, everyday activities -
like opening their arthritis
medication can be very dif-
ficult. Is it any wonder, then,
that millions seek alternative
ways to enhance their doctor-
prescribed drug treatment?
Nearly a quarter of all adult
Americans have. doctor-diag-
nosed arthritis, according to
the National Center for
Health Statistics. The Centers
for Disease Control report
that up to 25 percent of
osteoarthritis patients can't
perform major daily activi-
ties.
Fingers and hands are par-


ticularly susceptible to pain
and inflammation that can
cause difficulty in gripping,
pinching and grasping -
motions needed to perform
simple, everyday tasks. Non-
medicinal treatments from
supplements to specially
'designed gloves can help
improve pain relief and quali-
ty of life for many arthritis
sufferers.
"Evaluate all alternative
treatments with a critical eye
and follow the advice of your
doctor," cautions Aurelia
Koby, president of IMAK,
producers of aids for treating
joint and muscle pain.
Consumers can make intel-
ligent choices about alterna-
tive arthritis treatments with a
few facts at their fingertips:


"Mild to moderate exercise
is an important part of most
arthritis treatment plans,"
Koby says.
Exercise can help keep
joints moving, strengthen
muscles connected to joints,
preserve bone health, control
weight that greatly impacts
arthritis pain, and improve
your overall health and fit-
ness, according to
www.Arthritis.org, the Web
site of the not-for-profit
Arthritis Foundation.
Be sure your doctor or
physical therapist reviews and
advises you on any exercise
plan before you start one.
Eastern exercise traditions
such as yoga and tai chi can
help arthritis sufferers, many
experts believe.

A message about


grandparenting 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.
