Steve's Cargo Express has sold nearly every trailer on the lot since deciding to close the business.

"We're sorry. you've reached a number that
has been disconnected or is no longer in serv-
ice." %%as the answer at Firehouse Subs on
Tuesday.
Bill Cork. Firehouse franchisee, closed the
shop Saturday
It's the second one he closed. He sold
another and his Lakeland Firehouse remains
his sole income.
"I'm broke," Cork said Tuesday afternoon,
as he cleaned the soda machine.
The restaurant was steady during lunch
hours but "sales weren't exactly good" all
other times.
His franchise agreement precludes him
from saying much, Cork explained.
He opened Feb. 28, 2006.
"The higher fuel went, the low er the sales
went," Cork said, referring other inquiries to

Ste e's Cargo Express at 700 US
27 North, has been busy. Heard
With "going out of business" ban- 27 in
ners outside and at-cost pricing
inside, Steve Slaybaugh said he's
had more business in the past two weeks than
in the past four months combined.
"Seems my life has been lived in five-year
segments," he said Tuesday.
Steve's Cargo opened five years ago.
The previous 10 years, he owned a fleet of
trucks in Columbia City, Ind.
Gas prices are part of his demise.
"Nobody wants the additional drag," he
said, explaining there's one trailer for every
11 vehicles in Florida.
But, he was also married to the construc-
tion industry home builders and contrac-
tors constituted the core of his trailer, trailer
parts and trailer accessory store.
At the height of his business, he employed

times. I

Now, it's just him, a parts manager and a
one-day-per-week employee.
Betsy Ortega is the parts manager.
Her demeanor is positive and helpful,
despite her imminent unemployment.
"My husband wants me to take a few
weeks off," Ortega said, explaining she's not
one to sit around the house. "After that, I
guess I need to update my resume."
Steve's Cargo moved 28 trailers in eight
days.
Slaybaugh typically kept 40-60 on the lot,
just across from Lakeshore Mall's U.S. 27,

When the "big sale" began several weeks

Sports Complex

manager's firing

upheld in hearing

Ellingsworth was terminated
July 2 over tournament funds
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Walter Ellingsworth's griev-
ance appeal of his July 2 termination was off
to a rocky start from the start.
Until he was fired for allegedly using his
position for personal and misuse of county
equipment, Ellingsworth managed the coun-
ty's Sports Complex.
The multi-purpose complex is anchored by
five adult-sized softball fields and has fields
for little league football or soccer.
After a hearing that lasted an hour and a
quarter Thursday, investigating officer Ken
Wheeler sustained Ellingsworth's termina-
tion.
An apparent miscommunication postponed
the hearing from July 15.,

SEBRING Officials continue to look
into a home invasion off of Sturgeon Drive
Sunday night.
At around 11:30 p.m. a black male, approx-
imately 5-foot-4 and weighing 180 pounds
knocked on a door of one of the homes of the
4500 block of Sturgeon Drive, demanding
money.
The suspect was dressed in all black and
was wearing a ski mask.
"The victim told the suspect to get out of
his house and at that point the suspect began
beating the victim with the butt of his hand-
gun," Lt. Tim Lethbridge of the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office said.
The victim sustained injuries to his head
from the beating but did not require hospital-
ization.
HCSO K-9 deputies set up a perimeter and
initiated a track, with no success.

View on the street poll shows locals are against lowering national speed limit back to 55 mph


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING A totally
unscientific cross section of
Sebring residents were asked
Tuesday if they supported
lowering the national speed
limit to 55 mph in order to
save gasoline. While there
wa's some disagreement, peo-
ple were overwhelmingly


against the idea.
Here are their thoughts:
"If you had'a car back in
the 70s you had a four-barrel
carburetor. It made sense to
go slower because then the
second two barrels wouldn't
open and you saved gas.

Challenger


auction to


be held


on e-Bav
News-Sun staff
AVON PARK So much
interest has been generated
from Internet searches for a
2008 Dodge Challenger that
Stanley Wells has decided to
take the auction for his deal-
ership's Challenger to e-Bay.
Wells, president of Wells
Dodge Chrysler, said Tuesday
that the car will definitely be
sold, but instead of having an
auction in the dealership
showroom at 6:30 Thursday,
bidding for the car on e-Bay
will close late Thursday
morning.
More than 30 people from
across the United States have
called the dealership inquir-
ing about the car. Prior to
announcing plans to auction
the car, Wells said they had
received a call from someone
in Idaho offering $100,000
for it.
But, instead of selling the
car outright, Wells decided to
sell it to the highest bidder,
equally splitting any amount
over the $42,779 sticker price
between Ridge Area Arc and
Highlands County Habitat for
Humanity ensuring the
money will stay in the com-
munity.
"We will sell that car
Thursday," Wells said.
The 2008.75 Limited
Edition Dodge Challenger
SRT sits in the Wells Dodge
Chrysler showroom. It is No.
92 of the 6,400 made.
With 4,000 Dodge dealers
in the United States and only
6,400 of the cars coming out
of production, Wells knew it
would be a hot commodity.
Instead of putting a price tag

--he color of this
Challenger is straight from
the 1970s. The original
Challenger had a 426 Hemi,
which is the same engine still
used in fuel dragster rail cars,
Wells said.
The 2008 Challenger is
equipped with the optional
power sunroof, MyGIG
MultimediaSystem with GPS
Navigation. It packs a 6.1
Hemi V8 with 425 hp.

County sets maximum ad

valorem at current rate,


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin.shutt@ newssun.coin
SEBRING By certifying
next year's millage at this
year's rate Tuesday, county
commissioners locked in a
lower tax rate for property
owners.
Based on declining property
values and additional home-
stead exemptions, most prop-
erty owners would realize
decreased property taxes with
an ad valorem rate of 7.3544,
which is currently assessed.
The rollback rate, which
would allow the county to col-
lect the same amount of taxes


as they did this year, is 8.4153
mils.
The proposed budget pre-
sented to the commissioners
July 15 was based on this
year's property taxes.
Florida's "truth in millage"
laws doesn't allow the com-
missioners to establish proper-
ty taxes at a rate more than
7.3544 mils, but allows the
board to set the number lower
if necessary.
Ad valorem revenue of
$43.5 million is more than half
of the projected general fund
revenue for next fiscal year.


Polk Co. quartet tracked down,

charged with attempted burglary


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK Four men
from out of town were arrested
after allegedly trying to break
into the M and H Food Store
on S.R. 17.
The store's alarm went off
at 1:30 a.m. Tuesday morning
and Highlands County
Sheriff's Office deputies were
quick to reach the scene.
First arriving was Deputy
Brian Livesay.
"As he was approaching
there is a Shriner's building
that is just a little south of that
store," said Lt. Tim Lethbridge
of the HCSO. "He saw a vehi-
cle pulling out of the parking
lot and located the first sus-
pect at that time."
The man allegedly in the
car, a 2002 Chevrolet
Avalanche, was Robert E.
Williams, 23, of Lake Wales.
"After he was stopped they
spotted that he had bolt cutters
and a pry bar in the vehicle as
well as a glass cutter,"
Lethbridge said. "Further
investigation turned out that
he had wallets and IDs for two


make entry into the store,
Lethbridge said.
"They were apparently try:
ing to use the glass cutter at
the point the alarm triggered,"
he said. "The alarm went off
and they fled."
HCSO deputies set up a
perimeter and K-9 Deputy.
Justin Clemmons with his K-9
partner Nieche led the search
for nearly seven miles, to the
area near Highlands Regional
Hospital.
"They found three suspects
at the conclusion of the track,'
Two of them were identified as
having their ID in the car
stopped earlier," Lethbridge
said. "The apprehensions were
all due to the road patrol's
tenacity."
The men apprehended by
the track were juvenile
Manuel Valentine, 17, of
Babson Park, Chad Wilson,
18, of Winter Haven, and
Charles Jackson, 20, of

Kudos to Avon Park

One of the easiest things a politician can say is,
"It's time to cut the waste."
Everybody cheers.
The hardest thing a politician can do is find the
waste to cut.
One man's waste is another's necessity. There's
always someone to complain; a wonderful program
that has to be sacrificed.
This is why we congratulate the city council of
Avon Park for making a serious effort at planning for
the future with fiscal restraint.
The fact that members are going so far as to face
the need for layoffs and cutbacks is a sign of maturi-
ty,.as is the willingness to talk everything out.
The only way to tackle a budget is to do it line by
line, like they are. We wish other local governments,
and especially the Highlands County Board of County
Commissioners, were as brave facing their choices.
Mayor Sharon Schuler, Deputy Mayor George Hall,
Council Members Brenda Gray, Joe Wright and Aljoe
Hinson deserve our support as they tackle this painful
work.
We have to let go of sacred cows and be willing to
sacrifice, at least a little and across the board.
At the same time, our hearts go out to those whose
lives will be touched by these difficult decisions. It is,
after all, the human component that makes all this so
hard.
Hopefully the city staff will find ways to tighten up
spending, better protect inventories of tools, vehicles
and machinery, and. find other ways of strengthening
the city's finances without having to let anyone go.
But we need to be prepared even so.

ideas to be immune from criticism,

Letters


Election draws near, people
should watch
Editor:
Enclosed is a copy of the letter I
sent to Sheriff Susan Benton a
month or so ago. I am submitting
this letter as an open letter, for pub-
lication with this letter-to-the-edi-
tor. We have a sheriff who is not
responsive to the electorate. I dis-
covered this a year ago in relation
to the Florida Statutes and trespass
on my property. First a captain
called, then when I pursued the
matter further the sheriff's office
lawyer called. I still have no idea if
Sheriff Benton agrees with those
people or not.
Not long after that I discovered
that the lock boxes at the county
courthouse had been removed from
civilian use ("for police use only" I
was told). For a 14-inch folding
nail file, I was told "if it's got a
blade it's a knife." No entrance!
In the June 15 News-Sun a citizen
complained about the sheriff's
office run-around and it appears I'm
not alone in this problem. The rule
of thumb in politics is, one letter
equals about 10 similar problems.
In the June 15 News-Sun, a woman
entering the library who was beaten
and car-jacked made the headlines.
No word in the article on whether
or not the library condones their
personnel packing heat.
And in the June 8 News-Sun there
appeared an article (by ARA, who-
ever that is) that gave all kinds of
tips on how to stay safe. Guess
how! Giving up the streets and the
nails to the hoods!
If I ever get a letter from Sheriff
Beniton I'll share it with the readers.
If not, I'll share that too!
I wrote to Denise Grimsley about
a solution to the lock box problem
at the state level. I know I'll hear
from her. I also will share that cor-
respondence.
This is an election season. Time
to get hot. You've got no complaint
if you sit on your duff. Watch how
much comes out of the sheriff's
office the closer to election we get.

'Lies' should influence
November's election
Editor:
Recently, I called Barry Foster on
Radio 730 AM about two issues. I
commented on one without much
comment. In addressing the second..,
issue, about him commenting on all
the lies the Democrats were making
about numerous issues, I cautioned
him because the Republicans,
including President George W.
Bush, were also persistently lying
about their issues. He angrily cut
me off, repeating all the lies from
Democrats, including former
President Bill Clinton's lying under
oath and being impeached for same,
that both parties have lied for the
last 30-40 years; then he hung up
on me.
I wanted to respond that Clinton
lied about a personal failing, that he
did not impoverish the middle class
of this country, that the economy
flourished during his administra-
tion, that he left a $5-plus billion
surplus that Bush turned into an
immediate $4 billion deficit, plus a
$9-plus trillion national debt. I
wanted to state that Clinton and
Vice President Al Gore actually
reduced the size of the federal gov-
ernment, the first time in 50 years.
They installed a pay-as-you-go poli-
cy, thus actually decreasing the size
of the budget.
I also wanted to state that the
American people paid a terrible
price for Clinton's personal failing,
e.g.: the last seven years of the
Bush administration. I guess one
can place that at Clinton's feet
because Gore lost the election in
2000.
Thus, one can compare the "lies,"
the circumstances and consequences
and draw appropriate conclusions;
they should influence how one
votes in November.

sayings that I want to start off with.
One is from Mother Teresa, "I know
God will not give me anything I
can't handle. I just wish he didn't
trust me so much." The other one is
"Our greatest glory is.not in never
failing, but in rising up every time
we fail." Thanks Romona, I like
them very well.
But this is what gets me, when
you have a problem with the insur-
ance companies, regardless the situ-
ation, when they can not make
money on you, you are dropped. I
know the situation, whether you are
really at fault, that does not matter.
I amk thankful that God is not that
way. He forgives you and 'gives
another chance.
I need the insurance because my
wife has a type of cancer that can
be treated but not cured. She has to
go once a month for blood work
and to see Dr. Trindade and she also
has to see Dr. Midence too. I use a
wheelchair. I can walk some but it
is very painful. My health is not too
good either. We also have to buy
groceries. We have neighbors that
are more then willing to help but
we hate to bother them.
So why can not the insurance
company do like God and give me
another chance. I have had awards
for safe driving over the years when
I drove trucks. I have never had
tickets before. The one bad accident
that I had was several years ago in
Homestead, a man ran a stop sign
and hit my car on the driver's side
and drove the frame a foot beneath
me and turned me upside down.
When I came to I was trying to fig-
ure out how the steering wheel got
above my head. I was in the hospi-
tal for some time. I was paralyzed
from the hips down.


The man did not have insurance.
He left Homestead and was arrested
in Texas for no driver's license and
with out insurance too. Now I ask
you why can not the insurance com-
pany do like God and give me
another chance.
I know that there are a lot of
good people out there that have us
on their prayer list, which I says
God bless them. I just wish that
there more. To the good ones, I
thank you. I pray someone out in
the insurance business will help us.
I have some offers for insurance but
they want $ 3,000 or more per year.
I am not crying on your shoulders, I
just want some help.

The arrogant Americans
should look back
Editor:
Somewhere along the line the
people in the White House decided
that we would make all the rules for
people to live by since we were the
sole super power. Rules of
International law, formerly observed
by virtually all states, were flaunted
or observed by us at our whim.
Attempts to kill heads of state of
whom we disapproved were open
and notorious. Condemning aggres-
sion we nevertheless indulged in
anticipatory incursions, invading
Panama, Granada and Iraq in con-
travention of the law of nations. In
other cases we openly fomented
revolution and furnished material
support to revolutionary groups. All
of this we did because we knew that
we would not be held to account.
The CIA sent poison cigars to
Castro and financed other attempts
to kill him. We supported a military
junta in Chile and were complicit in
the assassination of its head of
state. Bombed Libya in an attempt
to kill Kadafi, kidnapped Noriega
after invading Panama and invaded
Iraq, allegedly based on faulty intel-
ligence when in fact the plan had
been in effect for over a year before
the actual incursion. An alleged
attempt on the life of one of our
former presidents is however


advanced as one of the reasons for
invading Iraq.
Abandoning our earlier commit-
ment to self determination by sover-
eign states, recognizing their right.
to a form a government of their.
choosing, we announced a policy of
Supporting regime change, influenc-
ing or actually participating in the
overthrow of governments of which
we did not approve. When not actu-
ally using force to effect such
change, we engaged in economic
warfare by means of imposing
embargoes and contributing finan-
cially and materially to internal rev-
olutionary movements. ...
Kingdoms like Saudi Arabia we
declare to be our steadfast friends,
never mind the oppressive aspects
of their regime. Cuba, on the other
hand is hammered with sanctions
for 50 years due to the political use-
fulness of a small group of emigres
in Miami.
We urge the establishment of
democracies with broad participa-
tion of its citizens in their affairs,
yet when we dislike their policies
we withhold recognition.
Our recent heads of state are
known more for their swagger than
their statesmanship. Threats of
armed intervention, both express
and implicit, are preferred to diplo-
matic dialogue. The ultimate arro-
gance, "we don't talk to evil" seems
to be the mantra of our current
diplomacy.
Yet we wonder, why are we no
longer loved and respected as we
once were? At the end of World War
II, we were all but universally
regarded with admiration and affec-
tion, the bastion of democracy that
saved the civilized world. This atti-
tude continued for a long time,
through the Korean War era and
beyond....
Now, at the beginning of the 21st
Century, many Americans wonder
why we are not appreciated for all
the good we have achieved, why we
are so roundly disliked in most
parts of the world. A bit of retro-
spection would supply most of the
answer.

FIRING
Continued from 1A
"On Wednesday I had sub-
mitted a report to the county
administrator closing the
issue," Wheeler said in a
memorandum dated Monday.
Wheeler took
Ellingsworth's no show as a
last-minute waiver of his
appellate rights, until he
received a call Thursday
morning.
"Mr. Ellingsworth tele-
phoned stating he was in tran-
sit for our grievance meet-
ing," said Wheeler, Solid
Waste Management director.
Wheeler received County
Administrator Michael
Wright's permission to re-
open the case.
Wheeler said
Ellingsworth's comments
supported his termination.
Ellingsworth had brought
in a tournament organized by
Strike Three Softball, a com-


pany that employs his wife.
who serves as secretary.
The business doesn't have
its own bank account and
deposits were made into an
account bearing
Ellingsworth's and his wife's
names.
As such, Ellingsworth,
"whether directly or indirect-
ly," earned a profit in addition
to his salary by bringing the
Strike Three tournament,
Wheeler said.
In addition, he said
Ellingsworth used the Sports
Complex fax machine for
Strike Three, which had listed
the fax number on its Web
site.
The grievance hearings for

are there on consignment.
He opened up operating out

"I feel excited for the
future," Slaybaugh said. "I
know my God will supply all
my needs."
Ironically, he was an organ-
izer of a blessing of business-
es held in April, when owners
gathered for fellowship and
divine intervention in the face
of a sluggish economy.
"Sometime things work out
and sometimes they don't,"
Slaybaugh said. "Christians
aren't exempt. God has some-
thing planned for me but I
don't know what it is."
He's not happy about clos-
ing his doors, but he doesn't
harbor sour grapes either.
As Slaybaugh visited with
News-Sun, his peg boards
were being removed.
Even the fixtures were for
sale.
"I really felt like we were a
service to the community," he
said.
Like the others who have to
close their doors, it's a matter
of weeks for Slaybaugh, he'll
be looking for a new job or
income stream.
Eric Eisnaugle closed the
doors to his Quizno's sub
sandwich franchise at
Southgate Plaza several
months ago.


SUSPECT
Continued from IA.
The victim said he heard a
car starting up after the sus-

southeast on Sturgeon Drive.
To maintain the integrity of
the investigation, officials
would not release any details
on any item or items stolen
during the course of the rob-
bery.
"Money was what he

said.

TOPS members participate

in new obesity gene study


Special to the News-Sun
Members of TOPS Club,
Inc. (Take Off Pounds
Sensibly) are participating in a
study conducted by the
Medical College of Wisconsin
to help determine the genetic
relationship between obese
parents and their children.
Several member families have
been part of a study that began
in 1993 focusing on the genet-
ics of obesity and metabolic
syndrome.
Dr. Ahmed Kissebah, pro-
fessor of medicine and pedi-
atrics and director of the TOPS
Center for Obesity and
Metabolic Research at the
Medical College of Wisconsin,
led a team that discovered five
new genes that seem to influ-
ence the problem of weight
gain. This new study includes
the children, ages 8-18, of
families who participated in
the original group. Kissebah
hopes to sequence eight genes
of adults and their children to
see how these genes are affect-
ed by the hormones and
behaviors of puberty, deter-
mining their chances for
becoming obese adults.
"The results of both the
1993 study and this new


research will hopefully lead to
new medicines to offset the
effects of so-called obesity
genes on youngsters,"
Kissebah said. An estimated
20 percent of American chil-
dren are obese and nearly a
third of the U.S. adult popula-
tion is considered overweight
or obese.
TOPS has contributed more
than $6.5 million to obesity
research since 1966.
To find a local chapter, visit
www.tops.org or call TOPS
Headquarters at (800) 932-
8677.
TOPS Club, Inc. (Take Off
Pounds Sensibly) is a power-
ful, nonprofit, noncommercial
weight-loss support and well-
ness education organization
with thousands of associate
chapters in the United States
and Canada. Members (about
200,000 worldwide), learn
about nutrition, portion con-
trol, food planning, exercise,
and more, in weekly meetings.
Weigh-ins, group feedback,
and support help members
achieve their goals. TOPS is
the original weight-loss organ-
ization and its International
Headquarters is located in
Milwaukee, Wis.

Friends & Neighbors


SEBRING RECREATION CLUB
Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING We are mem-
bers and are working in our
own way to make Sebring
more fun for you. We offer
card playing, table tennis, line
dancing and shuffleboard.
This goes on all year with the
desk closed in the summer
months and activities a little
slower. We need more people
in all of the above areas to
gain in the activity area.
Shuffleboard is compared
to chess as far as strategy
goes. You will find some peo-
ple who just shoot and do not
get into the game much. You
will also find people that are
good shooters playing. Then
you will find those that are
good players playing the
game. Good players can be
beaten but not often do you
have this pleasure of winning
with a good player.
There's always a question
on how a player uses his prac-
tice shots. Some things he
will want to determine are:
Drift: How much? Which
direction? Is it uniform? Is it
spotty? Speed: Is the court
slow, fast or medium? Is the
speed uniform? Is one disc
faster than the rest? All prac-


tice discs should come to a
stop by themselves. Players
not understanding practice
will stop disc and also remove
the first speed shot before the
second has stopped on its
own. If you have a question
ask John Bushee. He can and
will help you with any aspect
of the game.
Your last chance for a sum-
mer league tournament in
Sebring is Thursday, July 31.
Car pool, ride your bike, just
make it to this one. If you
shuffle, why not help the sport
grow in our area and try this
tournament, you may be
pleased.
Your club is known as a
card-playing group of
Sebring's best. Bridge is the
game of choice at this time,
with several more in the win-
ter months. Line dancing is
very popular with some that
are still young at heart. Ping-
pong is slowing down for
vacation season and needs
more interest among both
ladies and gentlemen.
Shuffleboard is now in a hold-
ing pattern with Betty Rizor,
Winnie Wells and Lisa
LaCotti just a few leading the
way into the summer.
We have heard from some
that left for the north and they
now are counting the weeks


until they return. One is able
to be with such nice people at
the club and also compete.
The bond of friends that you
make is beyond words when
competing, whether at cards,
table tennis, shuffleboard, or
line dancing.
Have you ever called Ed
Straub with a question yet?
His number is 386-0245, try
it. John Bushee still wants to
talk shuffleboard with you.
You will find us in back of
the Sebring Police Station at
333 Pomegranate Avenue.


TROPICAL HARBOR
Barbara Kelleher

LAKE PLACID July 14,
Monday coed coffee, our
hosts in charge of the coffee
and refreshments were Jim
and Luann Steffen who made
a variety of delicious home-
made cookies. Our emcee was
Louise Smith, who asked one
of our new residents to intro-
duce herself. We were all
happy to welcome Betty
Krebs originally from
Cincinnati, Ohio and now
lives at Belle Tower.
Louise then asked for a
report from our Sunshine
assistant, Bonnie Allen, who
reported the following people


who need our thoughts and
prayers following their sur-
gery, Harriet Emond, Carol
Oldham and Doug Peterson.
Next Louise read the list of
those celebrating a birthday
from July 13-19. She asked
Laura Baillie to play the piano
today and lead us in song.
Although Virginia Tharp usu-
ally plays the piano, Laura
accompanied us in order to
sing "Happy Birthday" to
Virginia, also John Fitch and
Jean Noyes. Louise then read
the two couples celebrating
however they were not pres-
ent at the morning coffee.
Before finishing, president
Wendy Hagg asked Virginia
Tharp to come to the podium.
Virginia was complimented
on her loyalty for the past 14
years to accompany this
group of residents and play
the piano at the coed coffee
on Monday and for special
holidays throughout the year.
He wanted her to know how
much the residents appreciat-
ed her and presented her with
a card that everyone signed
and a $25 gift certificate for
the Red Lobster restaurant.
Virginia thanked him and the
residents and told them this is
the best place to live and have
such wonderful caring friends
over the years. Virginia also


thanked Laura Baillie for pro-
viding the music so she could
enjoy her special day.
Bonnie Allen reminded the
women that Ladies Day Out
will be Tuesday at LaCasita
Restaurant in Lake Placid
beginning at 11:30 a.m.
Wendy Hagg announced that
July 20 was soup and sand-
wich. This goes towards the
boxes and postage that we
send to the men and women in
the military who are stationed
overseas. Peggy Teague
announced that July 18 the
Red Hatters were attending
the movies to see "Mama
Mia" at the Lakeshore Mall
followed by a stop at the
Dairy Queen for a luscious ice
cream treat. Bonnie Allen
announced that the carry-in

coffee Rachel Francis made
the coffee and Bonnie Allen
was the emcee. We had only
seven women attend the meet-
ing but since it was Ladies
Lunch Out, many were busy
arranging rides to carpool to
the LaCasita Restaurant. We
had 20 ladies attend the
luncheon, all enjoy the vari-
ous Spanish foods that were


prepared. The service was
excellent and the food deli-
cious.
Resident news: Charlene
Flamme celebrated her 64th
birthday at a surprise party
held at the home of Diane
Ostler, who also lives in
Tropical Harbor. Thirteen
people enjoyed the party,
which included her three sis-
ters, Carolyn, Cheron and
Cheryl. This is the first time
they have all been together
since 2001, when their mother
passed away. At the end of the
evening all were full from the
feast that Carolyn had pre-
pared. All went home happy
and content following a night
of fun and reminiscing the
good times they shared in the
past.

Dumb Award
The first one goes to (drum roll
please) ... The Federal Drug
Administration because they approve
recycled drugs. For example, when a
prescription medication loses patent,
and cheaper generics come onto the
market (think of Claritin for allergies),
the FDA gets pre$$ure from manufac-
turers to approve a brand new (and
improved?) version of the same drug
(called Clarinex). So one drug gets re-
birthed into the marketplace with a new
name and higher price tag. Cha-Ching!

It's been tied to suicide. For real! It has

combination of drugs.

Vitreous floaters annoying, but not necessarily a problem


As I. write this article, a
patient has just walked into
our office complaining of a
!'cobweb" in his vision. This
happens on a regular basis,
although some patients say
ihey see a "tadpole" or "bug"
moving in their vision.
These images seem to change
position with eye or head
movement. The layman's
term for this condition is
floaters, specifically, vitreous
floaters.
Upon dilated examination,
the eye doctor will observe
.- one or.more light gray to
tark blaik opacities floating
within the vitreous gel. This
gel fills the back of the eye
Ond makes up about 80 per-
cent of the globe. It is the
largest structure within the
apye. The opacities may take
on many different shapes, as
mentioned above and will
.float within the vitreous as
the eye moves. The doctor
will also look for pigment
floating within the vitreous,
'retinal tears or detachments,
-vitreous hemorrhaging, or
retinal hemorrhaging. The
.presence of pigment floating


within the vitreous
or a vitreous hemor-
rhage carries a high
probability that the
patient also has a
retinal tear.
Light flashes are
sometimes a com-
plaint resulting from
floaters. They are
usually considered
to be a result of trac-
tion between the vit-
reous gel and the


Focal
Point
Dr. Valerie
Moulds


inner lining of the
eye, known as the retina. The
vitreous gel tugs on the retina
with eye movement, which is
why patients complain more
of flashes of light when they
move their eyes. The inci-
dence of flashing lights
increases with age as the vit-
reous gel continues to lique-
fy, becoming more mobile.
Flashes of light may signify a
higher risk of retinal tears.
This is not to be confused
with the zig-zag pattern of
flashing lights associated
with migraine headaches.
These type of flashing lights
usually last about 20 minutes
and are sometimes multicol-


ored. A headache
may or may not fol-
low. No vitreous or
retinal problems are
associated with these
types of flashing
lights.
As aggravating as
they may initially
seem, no treatment is
recommended for
floaters. Most vitre-
ous floaters will
seem to become


smaller or collapse
on themselves over time.
Gravity also acts to pull larg-
er floaters down out of the
line of sight of the patient,
but this may take time. The
brain will learn to suppress
the image over time, to the
point that the patient is not
aware of the floater at all. If
a retinal tear is found, the
patient is referred to a retinal
specialist for treatment. The
retinal doctor may recom-
mend laser or cryotherapy
within 24 to 72 hours to
avoid the development of a
retinal detachment.
The majority of patients
who have a retinal detach-


ment are aware of a persis-
tant curtain or shadow some-
where in their visual field. If
this occurs, they are to return
to their eye doctor immedi-
ately for further evaluation.

fied optometric physician practic-

Spiegel, Wolfe impress at Southern Zone Sectional


Courtesy photo
Sean Spiegel poses with two-
time Olympic gold medalist
Gary Hall Jr. at the Olympic
Trials earlier this month.
Spiegel continues to shine
as he competed at the
Speedo Champions Series,
Southern Zone Southern
Sectional Championship, at
the Hall of Fame Pool locat-
ed in Fort Lauderdale,
Florida, July 17-20. Spiegel
placed fifth in the 50-meter
freestyle, and his time of
23.77 has qualified him fo
rhte Short Course National
Championship to be held
Dec. 4-6 in Atlanta. Fellow
Highlands Hurricane swim-
mer Megan Wolfe also
turned in an impressive per-
formance, placing 16th in
the 50 free, with a time of
27.59, qualifying her for the
Short Course Junior
National Championship Dec.
11-13 in Austin, Texas. The
meet in Fort Lauderdale
hosted 70 teams with more
than 600 swimmers in total.


Lean season, so I'm



heading up north


The dog days of summer
are here in south Florida.
Well, at least in my profes-
sion, despite it being the
rainy season, things have
dried up.
The busy Dixie season,
which kept my pages full for
the past couple months, has
faded away.
And the high school fall
seasons, while readying to
get going, aren't quite here
yet.
Sure, there are the occa-
sional weekend swim meets,
there are still plenty of golf
tournaments coming up but
as far as consistent games,
meets and events, we're at a
time of year where there just
aren't very many, if any.
So it leaves me that much
more time to fret over the
suddenly anemic Cubs
offense.
I mean, really, in his day,
Randy Johnson was a mon-
ster on the mound.
But what is he now, 58
years old? And yet he pitches
a shutout and only gave up a
hit or two Monday night?
At least the worry over the
Rays mini-slump before the
All-Star break have abated as
they've retaken the lead in
the American League East.
So that feel-good story
continues.
And the whole Brett Favre
situation doesn't look like
it's going to end any time
soon, which has me excited
that I'm going to be in the
midst of it for a few days.
As you read this, I'll be on
a plane heading first to
Milwaukee, then to the
Rhinelander, Wis. airport to
spend a few days with the


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne


family in that Northwoods
haven of Minocqua, the
'Island City.'
It will be nice to spend
time with the family, as well
as have a few days of not so
scorching temperatures.
Although, when my mom
recently told me the high for
the day up there was in the
mid 70s, it made me initially
think, "I better bring a
sweater!"
I also will enjoy doing
some water skiing without
fear of alligators.
Yes, I know, everyone tells
me it's nothing to worry
about but with the list of
injuries and bad luck I've
had in my life, that's just the
sort of situation where I
don't even want to tempt
fate.
But it will also be interest-
ing to be in the Dairy State
and get a feel for what
Wisconsinites are thinking
about Favre and the spat he's
having with the Packers.
See if he is still so beloved
that the die-hard fans are on
the verge of boycotting the
team they own.

Florida attracts anglers



like chum attracts fish


By BOB WATTENDORF
With great natural
resources and the efforts of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) and responsible
anglers, Florida is home to
some of the highest quality,
most diverse fishing in the
world.
The results are like a well-
chummed fishing hole,
attracting anglers who vote
for their favorite fisheries
with their best cast and hard-
earned cash.
It has also earned Florida
the title of "Fishing Capital of
the World."
The latest national statistics
showed Florida has 2.8 mil-
lion resident anglers, while
annually attracting 885,000
tourists who fish here.
As a result, Florida's econ-
omy benefits by a whopping
billion dollars in direct sales.
And even though Texas has
more inland water area (5,056
square miles vs. 4,672 for
Florida) and people (22.9 mil-
lion vs. 17.7 million from the
2006 Census data), Florida
has more resident anglers and
more than four times as many
tourist anglers (885,000) than
Texas (218,000).
With summer vacations in
full swing (or cast, as the case
may be), and gas prices
restricting travel, we will
likely see more anglers from
neighboring states and those
along the 1-10 and 1-95 corri-
dors coming to wet a line in
our prolific waters.
Moreover, more Floridians
are likely to stay within the
state borders to conserve fuel


and avoid nonresident fishing
license fees.
A resident freshwater or
saltwater license only costs
$17 and is valid for 365 days
from date of purchase.
Since the average number
of fishing trips per angler in
2006 was 17.2 days, with
many fishing trips lasting four
or more hours, fishing
remains an exceptional recre-
ational value, even without
catching dinner and bringing
it home.
Florida earned the title
"Fishing Capital of the
World" by coupling its great
resources with responsible
management of those
resources by the FWC.
Anglers will be coming in
abundance to test their skills,
and we hope to get them to try
out some new fishing oppor-
tunities.
By targeting a wide variety
of species and spreading
anglers out across the state
rather than over-fishing his-
torically publicized locations,
we can lessen the strain on
any specific fishery and help
promote sustainable use.
You can help keep Florida
the fishing capital by follow-
ing sound conservation prac-
tices and encouraging others
to do so as well. It takes only
a small effort to make a big
difference, by following a few
key standards:
Promote, through personal
example, ethical behavior in
the use of aquatic resources.
Value and respect the
aquatic environment and all
living things.
Avoid spilling and never


dump pollutants, such as gas
or oil.
Keep fishing sites litter-free.
Dispose of trash, including
worn lines, leaders and hooks,
in appropriate containers, and
recycle when possible.
Purchase and keep current
your fishing license. If you
are exempt, you may still pur-
chase a license as an easy way
to contribute directly to con-
servation.
Take precautionary meas-
ures to prevent spread of
exotic plants and animals.
Learn and obey angling and
boating regulations.
Treat other anglers, boaters
and property owners with
courtesy and respect, and
never trespass on private
lands or waters.
Keep no more fish than
needed for consumption, and
never wastefully discard fish.
Carefully handle and
release alive all fish that are
unwanted or prohibited by
regulation. Use tackle and
techniques that minimize
harm to fish when "catch-and-
release" angling.
Our Web site
(MyFWC.com) and publica-
tions, along with work we do
with the Recreational Boating
and Fishing Foundation
(TakeMeFishing.org) and
VISIT FLORIDA
(VisitFlorida.com), provide
additional information to help
anglers locate new areas and
learn to fish ethically for a
variety of species.

Conservation Commission.

Today, in sports history

July 23
On this day in 1866 the Cincinnati Red Stockings baseball team was formed.
In 1931 France announced it couldn't afford to send a team to the Olympic Games
in Los Angeles.
1955 saw Yankee pinch hitters Bob Cerv and Elston Howard connect for the first-
ever consecutive pinch-hit home runs.
Oddly, 20 years later to the day, in 1975, Willie Crawford and Lee Lacey repeated
that feat, for the L.A. Dodgers, marking the fifth time it had happened.
In 1995, Jon Daley won the 124th British Golf Open at St. Andrews in Scotland.

Continued from 1C
Or if, perhaps, they are
ready to move ahead with the
talented young core and start
a new era.
In either case, at least they
are well stocked at quarter-
back, with Aaron Rodgers
having showed promise and
two good QBs selected in the
recent draft in Matt Flynn
and Brian Brohm.
If I were to stop back in


Chicago on the trip, I'd be
hearing the lamenting of the
quarterback controversy
between Rex Grossman and
Kyle Orton.
Looking at both situations,
I'd say the Packers don't
have much to worry about,
whatever they decide to do.
The Dolphins, meanwhile,
ended the back-and-forth
between Jason Taylor and
Bill Parcells, sending the
defensive end to the
Redskins.


Coming off a 1-15 season,
and now their best defender
being traded, I recently heard
a commentator say, well, at
least they can't get much
,worse than last year.
Wanna bet?
It very well could be that
as my dry season ends, the
Dolphins will be just begin-
ning.
