AP considers



plugging in

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFELY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK Members of the city coun-
cil are looking to save the city money.
One idea currently being explored is shift-
ing over to electric vehicles, at least in some
departments, like Code Compliance and Parks
& Recreation.
For that reason, representatives from
Global Electric Motorcars, known as GEM, a
Chrysler company, and the Alan Jay
Automotive Network, which sells them, were
at city hall Tuesday morning showing off
three different models of the cars.
At this point in technological history, the
electric car's usefulness is somewhat cur-
tailed.
Top speed, for example, is
25 miles per hour. Furthest
distance before needing a re-
charge is 35 miles.
However, the GEM is street
worthy, and legal on all roads
posted 35 miles an hour or
Schuler less. They can legally cross
any intersection and meet
safety regulations.
The company's literature says the two pas-
senger model, driven 3,600 miles over three
years typically will have cost $90 in electric-
ity and $900 in insurance fees.
A combustion engine car on the other hand,
the company says, would have cost its owner
$450 in fuel, $120 in maintenance, and
$3,000 in insurance fees.
Beverly Bondonna, with Alan Jay, said care
of the car' is relatively) simple. They rarely
- .. need maintenance and can be plugged into an
ordinary household outlet. In that case it takes
from six to eight hours to recharge. Quick
charge cables are available, which cut
recharging to 40 minutes.
It takes six 12-volt batteries to power the
car. They typically last from three to five
years. A pack of them and it is recom-
mended to change all the batteries at once -
cost $200.
Captain Donald Simmons, head of Code
Enforcement, took Mayor Sharon Schuler for
a test drive. "So far I think it's great," he said.

Firefighters from three county departments battled a blaze at North Rehrer Road in Avon Park Lakes following a Tuesday afternoon thun-
derstorm. All indications lead fire and law enforcement officials to believe the fire started from a lightning strike. It was homeowner
Quirino Tortal's 73rd birthday. His wife, Remedios (bottom right), watches with a neighbor as her home burns.

Witnesses say

trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK At age 73,
Quirino Tortal has had plenty of
time to amass a collection of all
kinds of goods.
But for his birthday on
Tuesday, they were all destroyed.
Nearly 16 years ago Tortal and
his wife,.Remedios, were build-
ing a home on the same lot, and
an arsonist set it on fire com-
pletely destroying it, said neigh-
bor Lel Christensen.
They were three weeks away
from moving in, just waiting for
workers to lay tile.
"The house was pretty much
done except moving in; they had
to do it all over and start from
scratch," Christensen said. "Now
they've lost furniture; they've
lost everything they have."
The house is on North Rehrer


Road in Avon Park, far away
from fire hydrants.
"There's no water here so
there's no way to get to it,"
Christensen said. "You can't
fight it without water."
For Sam Henderson, director
of public safety for the Sun 'N
Lake Fire Department, fighting
fire without hydrants is
"extremely hard," but less .of a
concern than the summer heat.


"Before we run out of water,
we run out of manpower," he
said.
Between the Sun 'N Lake,
West Sebring and Highlands
Lakes fire departments, each
with a truck on scene, the 12 or
13 firefighters had 7,000 gallons
of water at their disposal.
It was overcast with a small
amount of rainfall, but tempera-
tures were still high. The men


rotated in and out during 30 min-
utes of intense fire fighting.
During that time the couple
lost two cars, their 2,500-square-
foot home and everything inside.
"There was quite a bit of stuff
in there," Henderson said.
He had not been inside yet, but
boxes were on the front porch of
the house and there appeared to
be a lot of stuff inside.
Remedios recalled the
moments before the fire started.
"We heard an explosion, a big
boom, and thought it must be
outside," she said. "Then we
heard another explosion and
there was already fire in the
garage. We could see it creeping
in."
In the early stages of the inves-
tigation, lightning was cited as
the cause of the fire.
"All the statements the sher-
iff's office has relate it to the
weather," Henderson said.
While she did lament the
destruction of her new refrigera-

County OKs expediting permit

process for Eagle National


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin .shutt@newssun.com
VENUS A squad-sized
element of retired generals,
former colonels and civilian
security experts deploying to
Highlands County next week
will reconnoiter 7,700 acres
they hope will become a civil-
ian-run national security
training center.
Ron Grigsby and family is
in the process of selling the
Venus property nestled in the
southwest corner of
Highlands near Glades and
DeSoto counties.
Tentatively dubbed Eagle
National Security Training
Center, construction won't
begin for about 18 months
pending approval by a battery
of state agencies and county
review boards, such as
Planning and Zoning.


That's why Lake Placid
attorney Bert Harris III, rep-
resenting Eagle National
Security and the Grigsbys,
was before the commission
Tuesday.
"Once the governor pulls
the trigger on this, the state
agencies have to process our
applications within 90 days,"
Harris said, explaining the
request to expedite the
process.
The board voted unani-
mously to sign off on speed-
ing the process, which now
goes to Gov. Charlie Crist.
By doing so, however, they
made no promises to Harris or
his clients regarding future
approval nor did they agree to
any special exceptions.

Musician creates



happy campers


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Back in May
local musician and entertainer
Frank 'E was sitting in his
Mustang at Yarbrough Tire
and Service, pretty much
minding his own business.
He had noticed an event
going on, but wasn't paying
that much attention, when he
looked up to find a young
teenager, Frankie Essie head-
ed his way.
"You need to get your car
washed," the younger Frankie
told the older Frank 'E,
explaining that he was a
member of Youth for Christ,
and they were having a car
wash to raise money to sent
young people to camp over
the summer.
Frank 'E quickly got in line
for a wash. While he was
waiting,g young Frankie
asked if he wouldn't sponsor
him for camp. It would take
$375 he said.
Almost without hesitation,
Frank 'E agreed.
Listening in to the conver-
sation were two Sebring High
School students, Chelsea
Caldwell and Shelby Maiel.
They, too, were taking part in
the car wash in the hopes of
going to camp, only they
wanted to go to the Youth for
Christ camp in Crooked
Creek, Colo., which would
cost $1,000 for each girl.
Teasing, they asked Frank


'E if he would sponsor them
too.
That took a little more
thought.
But Frank 'E took them
seriously and offered to put
his tips aside for two months,
and what he saved they could
have.
And so Frank 'E took Youth
for Christ on the road, so to
speak, letting his audiences
know what he was trying to
do and asking for their sup-
port.
One night, accompanied by
her mother, Shelby was able
to make a special plea and the
people around the bar at VFW
Post 4300 contributed $225 in
a matter of minutes.
In less than two months
Frank 'E has raised more than
$800, not the total amount
needed, but enough to help
make the young people's
dreams come true.
Bob Devlin, ministry direc-
tor, and Reid Thayer, a Youth
for Christ staff member, were
with Shelby and Shelby's
mother Saturday when Frank
'E gave them the money he
had collected.
In addition to thanking
Frank 'E for his generosity,
Devlin wanted to thank
Danny Yarbrough, owner of
Yarbrough Tire and Service.
"We'd been looking for a
corporate sponsor," Devlin
said, "because they are good

Shelby Maiel collects the money gathered Saturday evening
for the trip she wants to take to the Youth for Christ camp in
Crooked Creek, Colo. The money is actually the tips collect-
ed by musician Frank E at various gigs he has done around
the county.


kids, trying to do the right
thing. Doing something like
(going to camp) might keep
them on the straight and nar-
row."
Devlin said he had hardly
begun his pitch when
Yarbrough stopped him and
told him he'd be happy to
sponsor a car wash, complete
with a radio DJ, and give
aways $500 worth of tires


and $100 gas card to draw
customers in.
, Youth for Christ is a non-
profit organization. The
Reverend Billy Graham was
once a part of it. It now has
chapters in every middle and
high school in Highlands
County.

County pays back E-911,


Henley OK for special risk


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING County com-
missioners on Tuesday
approved a $94,600 reim-
bursement to the E-911 fund.
The funds account for three
"findings" of an April internal
audit report of E-911 per-
formed by the Clerk of Courts
office.
According to the report,
expenditures for equipment,
salaries and retirement bene-
fits were improperly drawn
on the E-911 fund.
Funded by a county-
imposed surcharge of 50 cents
per phone line (including
wireless accounts), the state
limits E-911 spending to tasks
and equipment directly relat-
ed to emergency communica-
tions and dispatching.
The report identified that
$44,166.53 was spent on uni-
forms, pagers, vehicles, tools,
building maintenance;
$35,998.14 for non-E-911
related work by four dispatch-
ers and a coordinator not
related to call taking; and
$14,456.21 for the retroactive
"questionable reclassifica-
tion" of Ben Henley for spe-
cial risk retirement.
County staff concurred in
part that Henley's special
risk differential should be
reimbursed to the E-911 fund
but that Henley's special risk
eligibility should be deter-
mined by the state's Florida
Retirement System.
"Our side of the story is


he's been special risk since
2001," Human Resources
Director John Minor said
Tuesday.
Henley became qualified
for special risk in 2001 and
submitted the appropriate
paperwork to have his retire-
ment account appropriately
funded by the county, Minor
explained.
But, the county hadn't paid
the difference (the amount
beyond normal retirement
payments by the county to the
state) until notified by the
state in 2006.
At that point, Minor said,
his predecessor initiated back
payments through to 2003.
"Somehow,
the loop was
broken,"
Minor said, of
therapparent
oversight.
Because of
Henley the audit, the
county resub-
mitted Henley's special risk
retirement paperwork, which
triggered FRS supervisor-
level reviews.
"They never said no,"
Minor said, explaining it
remains the county's position
that Henley is qualified for
special risk.
Henley, who used to be the
E-911 coordinator until
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office took over that func-
tion, is the county's emer-
gency management coordina-
tor.


Noise in Avon Park will cost more


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK Having received a steady
stream of complaints regarding motorists who
blare music from their automobiles, members
of the city council had directed the city attor-
ney, Gerald Buhr, to craft an ordinance to deal
with the situation a few weeks ago.
S Now he has. The first reading was Monday
night.
Part of the problem has been that Florida
statutes consider amplified noise from a vehi-
cle to be a non-moving violation. That means
fines typically are relatively low (in Avon Park
a first fine was $100) and can be issued and
paid over and over again, without consequence
to the car owner or driver. Because of that,
Buhr said, there is little incentive to turn the
volume down.
The new ordinance is aimed at those


motorists whose music can be heard 100 feet
or more away from the automobile. It also tar-
gets those property owners who play music
louder than necessary for the convenient hear-
ing by guests in residential areas, or areas
adjoining churches, schools, or hospitals.
The provisions do not apply to athletic
events, churches themselves, or special events
approved by the city. Nor does it apply to busi-
ness vehicles, like ice cream trucks, or those
used for political purposes.
The ordinance will raise the fines in an
effort to encourage compliance. A first offense
will cost $125. A second offense will cost
$250, and all further violations will cost $500
a piece.
In addition to the new ordinance, the city
council is -backing the police department's
enforcement drive, which includes officers on
bicycles and increased patrols.


Friday screening on the Mid-East threat planned


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Following last month's
showing of "The Global Warmin Swindle,"
the American Party of Florida is scheduled
to have another viewing of a special video
presentation.
Those interested- in the Mid-East threat
can -come Friday. evening to the Sebring
.Beef ..,O'.Brady.'s.- for a showing of
"Obsession, The Movie." "Obsession" is a
documentary about Radical Islam's war
against the west. Using images from Arab
TV, rarely seen in the West, "Obsession"
reveals an "insider's view" of the hatred the
Radicals are teaching, their incitement of
global jihad, and their goal of world domi-
nation.
In addition to the party's flag rallies,


booth displays, coffees and other events,
they now have added monthly screenings in
an effort to give residents an opportunity to
see another side of issues. such as global
warming, illegal immigration and now a
presentation on the Mid-East agenda.
"With the upcoming elections these issues
are more important than ever," Highlands "
* County American- Party Chairman.-Rob-
Home said.
He also asked those who wanted to have
screenings on other topics to come and dis-
cuss them with the group.
The screening will be from 6-8pm Friday
at Beef O'Brady's restaurant in the Sebring
Plaza. For additional information, people
may go to the party's Web -page at

Man steals neighbors tools, televisions


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING When an
alleged burglar found out he
couldn't pawn a pair of stolen
tools, he didn't throw them
away he instead gave them
to Habitat for Humanity."
Two power tools were
stolen from a shed a skill
saw and a drill, valued at $40
each. Electronics items were
stolen from the house along
Foggy Ridge Drive, which
included a VCR/DVD combo
player, 19-inch television, 20-
inch .television, and surround
system, an estimated total
value of $380.


Steven Whaley, 20, was
arrested for fraud, property
damage, two separate counts
of burglary, dealing in stolen
property and theft of more
than $300.
Following the reported bur-
glary, officials from the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office 'initiated a neighbor-
hood canvass.
When they spoke to
Whaley, the victim's neigh-
bor, he reportedly admitted he
had a serious drug problem
and said he stole the tools and
electronics from the neigh-
bor's home and shed.
An estimated $60 in dam-


age was done to the door of
the shed and $100 in damage
was done to the door of the
house during the burglary.
Whaley told officials he
pawned the electronics at a
Sebring pawn shop, the arrest
report by Daniel Wilson of the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office said.
The VCR/DVD combo
player and 20-inch television
were recovered, but the others
are still unaccounted for, he
said.
Whaley was arrested and
transported to the Highlands
County Jail where he was
being held on $18,000 bond.

Sheriff's Office that her con-
tact information and picture
appear in a local advertise-
ment, and she was concerned
that the man texting her knew
where she worked.
When the HCSO contacted
Jensen about his alleged
activity, he said he was tex-
ting "a girl I want to go out
with," the arrest report by
Officer Veronica Osborne
said.
He reportedly admitted to
finding her picture and phone
number through the local
advertisement.
When he was asked if he
had ever met the girl, he
allegedly said he had not, but
wanted to.


Police seek armed robbery


suspect in north Sebring


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING A store man-
ager was robbed at gunpoint
as he was leaving his store
just north of the Sebring Wal-
Mart late Saturday, authori-
ties said.
The suspect, described as a
male between five-foot, six
and eight inches tall, of thin
build, made off with an undis-
closed amount of money and
fled on foot heading south.
Authorities responded to
the store, owned by the HA
petroleum group, 3323 U.S.,
27 North, shortly before
10:30 p.m.
The search continues for
the lone suspect.
"A K-9 track was attempted
but it did not result in locating
a suspect," said Lt. Tim
Lethbridge of the Highlands
County Sheriffs Office.
The suspect had a firearm,
but authorities would not
release any additional details


on the weapon.
He was wearing all black
clothing with a black bandana
and black hat.
The manager was robbed as
he was leaving the store, but
Lethbridge would not say if
the suspect forced the manag-
er back into the store or if the
manager was locking up for
the night. Lethbridge said he
believes the store closes at 10
p.m.
"He did steal money from
the 4.tpre," he said, not reveal-
ing any additional details.
Aside from the 'manager,
there was at least one witness
working with police.
Anyone with additional
information on the case is
urged to contact Det. Jamie
Davidson with the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office at
402-7200. To remain anony-
mous and be eligible for a
cash reward, contact
Crimestoppers at 1-800-226-
8477.

"'My love life isn't doing so
good and I thought I could
meet some girls," he alleged-
ly told a HCSO deputy.
He said he had used a simi-
lar approach before to meet
girls, doing it as many as four
or more times, Osborne said.
Jensen was booked into the
Highlands County Jail on
Saturday and is being held
without bond, according to
the HCSO Web site.
This isn't the first time
Jensen has been charged with
using unique attempts at gar-
nering the attention of poten-
tial female companions.
In January of 2004 he was
charged with disorderly con-
duct when he allegedly
ordered a drink from the
McDonald's drive-thru and
exposed himself to a female
employee.
Jensen reportedly told
Avon Park Police officials he
was attracted to the victim
and was hoping she would be
attracted to him and could
eventually date her.
He knew the act was wrong
but was trying to impress the
victim in hope to gain her
attention, the arrest report
said.

A clever mouse

Walt Disney World probably put itself in the legal
cross hairs of America's gun lobby this week when
theme park officials fired a security guard who
sought the law's protection,but violated company
policy in doing so.
Bringing a gun to work is perfectly legal, thanks
to the pliant Florida Legislature that approved a law
allowing concealed weapons permit holders to pack
heat as long as they leave their guns locked in their
vehicles. In dismissing the employee, Disney reads
the law differently. The theme park claims it is
exempt from the law, which has some seeing red.
Disney officials terminated the guard's employ-
ment after he refused to allow them to search his car.
It didn't help that the erstwhile employee told local
media he had decided to challenge the theme park's
no-gun policy beforehand, but why should anyone be
shocked that this new law has become a circus?
Lawmakers should have seen this coming once
they, in 2005, approved a bill extending the "Castle
Doctrine," giving citizens much more leeway to use
firearms in self-defense away from their homes. Gun
rights advocates then focused on efforts allowing
those with weapons permits to take their guns to
workplaces; eventually agreeing to a compromise
that required the firearms to stay in vehicles.
That compromise is unacceptable because it
erodes another constitutional protection for owners
of private property. A workplace owner, not state
law, should determine whether employees may have
firearms on their property or not. Period.
Enter Walt Disney World, whose executives
opposed the bill and have now found a legal way
around it. The theme park argues it need not abide
by the law because of a loophole it helped fashion
that exempts employers that handle explosives.
Disney argues it fits the bill because it has extensive
permits for its fireworks shows.
Critics may cry foul but park officials can't be
faulted for following a time-honored tradition in
Tallahassee: Crafting a loophole that, in this case, is
Sbig enough to drive a Monorail through. That's one ,
clever mouse.

Why not underground
aqua ducts?
Editor:
Over, 4,000 years ago the
Romans built aqua ducts to
supply the city of Rome with
fresh water.
Are you trying to tell me
that in this modem day and
age of modern technology,
that we can't build under-
ground water ducts to supply
our cities and other dry areas
with fresh water?
Millions of gallons of fresh
water from the Mississippi
River are being wasted and
dumped into the Gulf of
Mexico every day.
Millions of gallons of fresh
water from Silver Springs and
other underground rivers and
springs are being wasted and
dumped into the Atlantic and
Pacific oceans.
We have.millions of gallons
of fresh water from the
Colorado River and many
other rivers being wasted and
dumped into oceans through-
out America.
Are you trying to tell me
that we don't have the intelli-
gence to build underground
aqua ducts to use these bil-
lions of gallons of fresh water
that are being wasted every
day?
Yet we can spend hundreds
of billions of dollars every


year on wars that we should
never have gotten involved in,
in the first place.
For shame, for shame.

Thanks for keeping
letter intent alone
Editor:
As newspapers have estab-
lished a morning routine of
satisfaction and inquisitive
resolve for facts- and informa-
tion, not unlike analogue
changing over to digital and
societal changes for simplici-
ty, a special thanks to the
News-Sun for the great job
done over the years and to the,
staff for putting out a quality
paper each week. And to the
delivery department out of
gas.
The computer age is chas-
ing our dear old newspaper
into the past as we read.
So, as long as you're still
around, I say thanks to the
staff and also to the editing
department for allowing pub-
lic input as per First
Amendment. Thanks for not
always editing select words to
willfully change content and
meaning to cause a change in
writer's actual thoughts


intended. Some editors (no
need to mention names)
change or edit content to fit
their own personal or political
agenda. I have put the same
letter in different papers to
watch how manipulations are
applied. Thanks again and
hope to always be able to put
them quarters in the box.

wish to thank Joanna
Chandler, manager and the
executive officers of
Wauchula State Bank, for


their recent substantial dona-
tion to our organization.
Without the generosity of
corporate sponsors, such as

not be able to provide the

quality arts and crafts, guest

for high school seniors.
With our deep gratitude we
thank you Wauchula State

port of the Caladium Arts and

Beloved wife of Thomas Waldock and dear mother of Ellen Waldock of

ack-to-school means back to a busier schedule for a lot of families. Between
work, school, homework, sports and other extracurricular activities, it's hard
to sit down to dinner together. And, even if there is time to eat as a family,

same old standards night after night.
But a chef-inspired, family friendly dinner at home is possible. There's no need to

the frozen food aisle.
For example, No Name, a line of frozen meats and seafood, offers a variety
of ways to give you a jump-start on tasty meals such as Chicken Parmesan

en breast entrees.

SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING Thank the
Lord for everything that we
have, we also pray for all
armed service personnel and
their families. We thank the
Lord for our much need rain
this past week. We also thank
all of the club members that
make our club so worthwhile.
We miss those whose health
keeps them from us. We
should never complain about
life or anything else with all
that we have.
You always think of the
community when you think of
the Sebring Recreation Club.
The Sebring Chamber of
Commerce is a wonderful
service to this community. We
are an active member and
have been for the past seven
years. We both are "Working
Together For a Better
Community." With your help,
Sebring will only get better
for all. See the chamber publi-
cations to see the best of
Sebring.
Our paper gets the good
news out also helping Sebring
grow.
Shuffleboard being into
summer and all is well.
Shuffleboard is good people
having a good time together.
When in doubt take it out, is
another good rule for shuffle-
board. Don't miss a chance to
hide. Don't shoot on board,
get a hide first. Don't take
unnecessary chances if the
score is close. If you have the
hammer, don't be too anxious
to score. Don't play your
opponent's disc for the
kitchen, go on board if you
want a kitchen chance.
When your opponent is
shooting, stand way back to
the side with your cue upright
giving them plenty of space.
Never crowd them while
shooting. Should you be
crowded, ask in a pleasant
manner for more room.

We thank those people from
Avon Park that come down to
shuffle with us. Ester Bryson,
Roscoe Burdette and Shirley
Swindell are a few that are no
stranger to Sebring. You must
ask Shirley if she is fussy
about her ride down.
Have you been and shuffled
with us yet? You need never
to have shuffled before
because the people at Sebring
love to help beginners learn.
Come out and see if this is not
true. You will only be a
stranger on your first visit
with this group. We at Sebring
are trying to make the sport
grow as it is in other areas
around the world.
Table tennis attendance is
down and we need more play-
ers for this sport. Come and
meet the present players now.
The number will be larger
after vacation season is over.
Can you believe that we
that are retired need a vaca-
tion?
Table tennis will grow if
you attend and add to the
number of players. We do not
have to purchase more tables
yet because you are not play-
ing.
Last night at line dancing
they had a nice spread of fin-
gerfoods for all the dancers. I
do not know what the occa-
sion was, but this was no sur-
prise for me to see. They, the
dancers, are a fun loving
group by all appearances. You
should check them out on any
Wednesday evening.
We are the only group line
dancing on Wednesday
evening as far as I know. You
can dance at Buttonwood
Bay, Sebring Village and with
us yet another night. Just
because you dance in other
locations, we still want you
with us.
Share a ride with friends to
save gas as you come to the
club. This is good advice in
whatever you do. When you
go to church, take people with
you. Set the example that we

TROPICAL HARBOR
Barbara Kelleher


LAKE PLACID Friday,
July 4 started out with a bang
since we have more than 20
golf carts all decorated and
ready to roll throughout the
park for our annual Golf Cart
Parade. Some were decorated
with stars and stripes all red,
white and blue. All seemed to
dress for the occasion as well,
in fact some even dressed
their little dogs. Everyone
seemed to be having a great
time and, of course, the resi-
dents came out of their homes
to clap and wave as the parade
went by their street.
The judges selected Terry
and Barbara McKamey for
first prize, then we had John
and Lena Chapman receiving
second prize and Jerry and
Joan Rau received the third
prize gift. Our judges were
Bill butts, Ed Cromer and
Johp Fitch.
After the parade the July
committee served more than
75 people and served rotis-
serie chicken or if you pre-
ferred fried chicken they also
furnished the desserts and
lemonade, tea or coffee.
Residents brought a dish to

with a picnic. Following the
lunch, many of the residents
stayed to play bingo. All had a
great time. Best of all, the rain
held out in order to see the
beautiful fireworks display
put on by the county.
July 7, Monday morning
coed coffee hosts were Clyde
and Rachel Francis who made
the coffee and served a vari-
ety of jelly doughnuts that
were provided by our speak-
ers. Joan Peterson introduced
Bea Cooper, who is the mar-
keting director, along with the
owner of Southern Lifestyle
Assisted Living Facility,
Chuck Oaks. They told us
about the services they pro-
vide for the clients and the
community following our
morning meeting.
Our emcee, Louise Smith,
introduced George Susco, our
park manager, who told the
group that the spa is still inop-
erable since the parts they
ordered still have not arrived.
Someone is still discarding
towels down their commodes,
this is causing damage to the
sewer system. The screen
room is being refurbished, so
you may not be able to use it
for a few days. Trash pick up,
if you are not handicapped,
please try to take care of this
on your own. The staff is very
busy trying to keep up with
the lawns and other important
maintenance needs; they run
out of time to accomplish all
that has to be done.
He turned the program back
over to Louise, who asked
Bonnie Allen for a Sunshine
report. She read a thank you
card from Carol Oldham, who
recently had open heart sur-
gery. She has get-well sheets
on the table for all to sign for
the following: Laura Helbig,
Carol Oldham, Doug
Peterson, Virginia Tharp and
Shirley Willingham. We also
have a sympathy card for our
former residents, Mary Lou
Goodson and her husband
Gene. He passed away this


month. Please keep all in your
thoughts and prayers.
Louise asked Laura for her
accompaniment. Louise asked
Laura Baillie to play the piano
and lead us in song. The fol-
lowing people were present:
Arlene Clouston, Phyllis
Williams and Ed Cromer all
sang "Happy Birthday." Then
Louise read the list of resi-
dents who are celebrating
wedding anniversary during
the week of July 5-12. We all
sang to Bart and Patricia
Wahl. Louise thanked Laura
for her accompaniment.
Louise asked if we had any
other activities to be
announced. One of the men
reminded the Mustangs that
they will be going to Annie's
for their lunch out July 8.
Joan Peterson announced the
Ladies Lunch Out will be at
LaCasta Mexican Restaurant
on July 15.

July. They were: Helen
Anstine, Bill and Jan Butts,
Ed and Marilyn Comer,
Duane Dean, John and Sylvia
Fitch, Clyde Francis, Regina
Garner, Alice Jacobson and
Marysue and Dereck Willeke.
She had all to stand to be rec-
ognized and said she could
not have had such a great
Fourth of July all day pro-
gram without their help.
Louise then turned the pro-
gram over to our guest speak-
ers. Both Mr. Oaks and Bea
Cooper told the residents
about the services that
Southern Lifestyle Assisted
Living provide. They present-
ly have 55 people living in
their facility. The facility has
105 rooms. They have vehi-
cles for special events or doc-
tors' appointments for the res-
idents. They have exercise
equipment, large video screen
for movies, laundry service,
etc. Both invited our residents
to come and tour the facility.


It was a very informative
presentation.
July 8, Ladies coffee, our
host and emcee was Rachel
Francis. We had 12 ladies
present. She told the group
about the Fourth of July activ-
ities and how much she appre-
ciated all the people who vol-
unteered to help her. Our
carry-in dinner will be
Thursday, July 24, which will
be a true potluck supper. The
ladies discussed purchasing
new pots and pans and new
knives, since many bring their
own from home in order to
properly cut meats and veg-
etables. Joan Peterson read
the names of people on our
sick list and she has sign-up
sheets for all to sign letting ,
people know we are thinking
of them. Joan also told the
women that Ladies Day Out ,
will be at LaCasita Mexican
Restaurant next to Valencia
Hotel in Lake Placid on July
15.
Resident News Bob and

by their daughter, Connie, and
son-in-law, Jim White, to go
three glorious days at House

Natural ways to shrink fibroids


Dear Pharmacist: I have a
vaginal fibroid that is about
the size of an egg. It's
attached at the opening of the
vagina and is very painful.
What can I take that is natural
to help shrink it? CA,
Orlando

Answer: Fibroids are non-
cancerous growths that more
often appear in the breast,
uterus or ovaries. One thing is
clear about fibroids, they need
estrogen to grow and if you
reduce the amount of estrogen
in the body, they retreat. This
is why menopausal women
seem to trade in their fibroids
for hot flashes.
Some fibroids grow to the
size of a grapefruit.
Hysterectomies are some-
times performed as 'treat-


ment.' It's understandable in
certain serious cases when the
fibroids cause extreme pain or
cancer is involved, but I think
it's barbaric that doctors used
to do routine hysterectomies
to remove fibroids even if you
had no symptoms. Besides
surgery doesn't fix the hor-
monal imbalance that caused
it in the first place.
Hysterectomies rank up
there with other ridiculous
procedures that were once
popular, like bloodletting,
routine tonsillectomies and
lobotomies! So ladies, before
you get talked into going
under the knife, at least try
some of the following supple-
ments.

0 Serrapeptase: This is an
enzyme that eats cysts for


DearRPharmacist
Suzy Cohen
food. I think it is amazing for
inflammatory conditions and
it should shrink your fibroids
with continued use. Sold
widely online and in health
food stores.
Myomin: A blend of
Chinese herbs was developed
by an Oriental naturopath, Dr.
Chi. The supplement limits
estrogen production, acting
sort of like an "aromatase


inhibitor" similarly to
stronger prescription drugs
(Aromasin, Evista and
Tamoxifen).
Sold online at www.ener
geticnutrition.com or
www.chi-health.conm.
This supplement will you
reduce estrogen load and
when fibroids don't get the
estrogen they need, bloating
might occur, especially right
before your period and for a
few days into your cycle. So it
appears that your fibroid con-
dition is worsening. Bloating
should subside midway
through your cycle. A colored
discharge may also occur for a
few months as the fibroids
slowly dissolve and exit the
body.
I3C or DIM: This supple-
ment is extracted from broc-


coli, cauliflower and other
cruciferous veggies. It helps
reduce estrogen in the body so
the same warnings exist for
this supplement as for
Myomin.

Evening Primrose Oil:
It's extracted from the seeds
of a wildflower and provides
you with gamma-linolenic
acid (GLA). This can help
relieve painful menstrual
cycles, endometriosis and
fibroid tumors too!

Diet: No more fried
food, dairy or meat because
these may fuel the growth of
fibroids. Eat more salads and
fruits. Drink juices that are
red and fresh, like pure pome-
granate, grape or cranberry


juice.
Medicine: Wean off your
birth control or hormone
replacement drugs (with your
doctor's blessings) because
these forms of estrogen fuel
fibroid growth.

Did You Know?
Drug companies are trying
to pull a fast one and get FDA
approval to use station choles-
terol drugs in 8- to 10-year-
old kids, even without ade-
quate testing in this popula-
tion!

condition. Suzy Cohen is the

Drum therapy comes
to Kenilworth Care
SEBRING Kenilworth '
Care & Rehabilitation Center
is proud to announce a new
drum therapy program for its
Alzheimer's and general care
patients. The program, intro-
duced by the Primal
Connection, is in its third
monthly session and expected
to be an-ongoing part of
Kenilworth's programming to
enrich the lives of its
patients.
Medical research has
established that hand drum-
ming is a particularly effec-
tive form of music therapy
for a number of human ail-


ments including Alzheimer's.
Rhythm engages both hemi-
spheres of the brain and the
sonic vibrations of hand
drums reach patients at a cel-
lular level. The erratic firing
of frayed nervous systems
are soothed and brought into
sync with the dominant
rhythm entrainmentt).
This stress reducing, kinet-
ic, activity reduces the clutter
of the mind and brings
patients into the present
moment where they can
experience the joy of making
music as a community.
For more information,, call
Luis Rodriguez, Quality of
Life Program director of
Kenilworth Health Care, or
Fred Leavitt, founder of
Primal Connection.

The early morning chill and the

all in 1:06:15.

Florida Hospital Heartland Division CEO/President Tom Cook raises his
arms in celebration and relief as he completes the triathalon Sunday
afternoon The Heartland Triathlon was presented by Florida Hospital
Heartland Division.


I guess mwe should all be a
little bitter, Cubs and Rays
fans alike and yet, I only
came to that conclusion after
really having to think about
it.
In the moment, I was as
shocked, awed, elated and
amazed as anyone and enjoy-
ing the monumental perform-,
ance Josh Hamilton put on in
the first round of Monday
night's Home Run Derby.
With 38 swings of his bat,
his tattooed arms crushed 28
home runs and for many of
them, I mean crushed.
Balls soaring to the far
reaches' of the Yankee
Stadium bleachers, a couple *
of times nearly making good
on his pre-derby suggestion
that he could hit one out of
The House That Ruth Built.
It was an amazing scene,
the other All-Stars in just as
much awe as the rest of us,
faces locked in smiles of
amazement.
Not the mention, perhaps
the toughest, most cynical
fans in all sports, New
Yorkers, eventually became
so delirious they began
chanting his name en masse.
Adding to it was long-time
American Legion and high
school coach, and personal
batting practice pitcher, 71-
year old Clayborn Counsil
was given the honor of pitch-
ing to Hamilton for this
event a distant reminder to
Hamilton of a more innocent
time for him.
All this, another step to
push away the immediate
reminders that cover his arms
- those multitude of tattoos.
The now 27 bits of body
art sought out during too
many blurry nights of intoxi-
cation, crack and heroin
highs.
A dark path that took the

ber-one pick farther and far-
ther from his destiny as the
next great thing.
A path that saw the one
clean-cut, golden boy fritter
away his $4 million signing
bonus, throw away his career
- and nearly his life.
The frightening world of
alcohol and drug addiction
seemed just another story of
such that felled a promising
young star.
The difference, this time,
is that Hamilton slowly but
surely started the comeback.
With a support group of
family, friends and religion
to help in his quest, he has
gone through the worst of it.
The day-to-day struggles
to push the cravings out of
his body and mind.
Making sure to stay away
from certain places, certain
types of places, so as to not
get tripped up because a
fall at any point could send
him reeling down that ugly
path all over again.
But amid the struggles,
Tampa Bay gave up hope.
The Cubs selected him in
the Rule 5 draft before the
2007 season and promptly
trading him to Cincinnati for
$50,000 in a pre-arranged
deal.
The talent was enticing,

BASEBALL
NEW YORK (AP) Josh Hamilton
dreamed it. Now he's done it.
With a dazzling display of power, the
Texas Rangers slugger hit a record 28
homers in the first round of the All-Star
Home Run Derby at Yankee Stadium
before being beaten out by Minnesota's
Justin Morneau in the finals.
Morneau topped a tired Hamilton 5-3 in
the last round, giving him the derby
title. But the night belonged to
Hamilton.
Back from drug and alcohol addiction
that derailed his career, Hamilton broke
Bobby Abreu's mark for one round.
Abreu hit 24 home runs in the first
round in 2005 at Detroit's Comerica
Park.
Hamilton's incredible tale of redemption
has made national news this season,
and he retold a story Monday afternoon
about a vivid dream he had two years
ago he was being interviewed at


Yankee Stadium after participating in
the Home Run Derby.
"I can say it was a coincidence, but I
don't believe in those," he said.
Mind you, his dream came while
Hamilton was still banned from Major
League Baseball, and before this year's
All-Star game was awarded to the ve
erable ballpark in its final season.
FOOTBALL.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Indianapolis
Colts quarterback Peyton Manning-had
a medical procedure to remove an
infected bursa sac from his left knee.
Colts president Bill Polian said the
team's medical staff expects Manning
to have "a full and complete return to
action" in four to six weeks. Colts train-
ing camp begins July 25.
Polian said Manning has been receiving
conservative treatment for the inflamed
bursa sac since February. He said that
treatment was effective until Manning
experienced increased pain and early
signs of infection.
Manning has started 160 straight
games dating back to the first game of
his rookie season. He has the longest
streak in the league if Brett Favre
remains retired.
MILWAUKEE (AP) Brett Favre finally
is speaking for himself: He wants to
play but doesn't feel welcome in Green
Bay, so he's asking to be released.
The quarterback's first substantial com-
ments on hfislatest retirement decision
reversal come in an interview with Fox
News on "On the Record with Greta Van _
Susteren."
"OK, you guys have a different path,
fine," Favre said, recalling a June 20
conversation with Packers coach Mike
McCarthy. "What does that mean for
me? So that means either you give me
my helmet, welcome back, or release
me, or attempt to trade me. We all
know that's a possibility, but way-out-
there possibility.
"And he says, 'Well, playing here is not
an option, but we can't envision you
playing with another team, you know,
either.' And I thought, so basically, I'm
not playing for anyone if I choose to
come back."
The team had no immediate reaction to
Favre's interview.
TOUR DE FRANCE
HAUTACAM, France (AP) Bruised
and sore and aching from head to ',
ankles, Cadel Evans stood on the podi-
um with tears in his eyes and a yellow
jersey on his back.
The Australian took the overall lead in
the Tour de France after a punishing
10th stage through the Pyrenees. His
surge to the front came a day after he
tumbled over his handlebars, leaving
him with a cracked helmet and a body
coated with cuts. He feared his Tour de
France was over.
The 31-year-old Silence Lotto leader, a
favorite going into the race, seized the
lead from Kim Kirchen of Luxembourg
in a stage won by Leonardo Piepolo of
Italy on Bastille Day. Evans has the
smallest possible lead 1 second -
over Frank Schleck of Luxembourg as
the race takes a rest day Tuesday.
With nine riders within 2 1/2 minutes of
Evans, the Tour appears wide open and
poised for more racing drama at a time
when organizers hope to get past the
doping scandals that have battered the
sport's image.
OLYMPICS
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -
USA Boxing's judicial committee upheld
the organization's decision to ban Luis
Yanez from the Olympic team, leaving
the light flyweight with just one more
chance to make it to Beijing.
Yanez is expected to appeal his punish-
ment to an inpde nt arbitrator this
week, hoping for a decision before his
teammates leave for China next week.
Yanez was kicked off the roster July 1
for skipping more than three weeks of
workouts last month at the team's resi-
dency training program. Coach Dan
Campbell and USA Boxing CEO Jim
Millman said they didn't hear from
Yanez, who left June 4 for his native
Duncanville, Texas, until shortly before
they sent a formal letter setting a final
deadline for his return.
Yanez, a two-time U.S. champion who
won a gold medal at the Pan-Am
Games last year, missed a training trip
to Argentina in late June, instead
attending a send-off dinner in Dallas
where a Texas state representative gave
him a commemorative plaque.
When Yanez finally got back in contact
with his coaches, he was reluctant to
say why he had missed workouts. He
eventually claimed he was caring for his
sister and her four children while she
went through rehabilitation for an
addiction to crack cocaine, but the team
still barred Yanez from the U.S. Olympic
Training Center.

but the addled past was the
ever present shadow that
could not be ignored.
It is easier for him now,
the recovery that he will live
with for the rest of his career
and life.
It's not as day to day as it
once was.
The support group now
extends to his new team in
Texas, as well as his baseball
brethren throughout the
league, with offers of
encouragement during at
bats, or while chatting up a
first baseman after yet anoth-
er hit.
Hamilton came into the
All-Star break with 95 RBI
in the Rangers' first 96
games, batting .310 with 21
home runs at long last
making good on all the
promise so many had seen.
And now this awesome
display on Monday night in
this hallowed ground in the
Bronx.
Part of the Cub fan in me,
or perhaps the Rays fan in
you, can find a reason to be
bitter for what each of our
teams have missed out on.
But really, can you be any-
thing but happy for Josh
Hamilton?
