Face to face with the human


side of a budget shortfall


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Rodney Walker has been a part of the Ridge Area ARC program for 10 years. Because of recent budget
cuts from the state, Walker had to make some tough decisions on what services to give up and he reluc-
tantly chose not to participate in the adult day training program at Arc.

Cutbacks force Arc consumers to decide which
needed services they'll have to live without


* Second of two parts
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.comn
AVON PARK
R honda Beckman, executive director of Ridge
Area Arc at 120 West College Drive, has a
heavy heart. She and her co-workers at the pri-
vate, not-for-profit center that provides training
and resources for local citizens with developmental
disabilities are having to shepherd their consumers
through a difficult time.
Because of falling tax revenues, the state legislature
is having to trim spending on a draconian scale.
Among the first individuals to be directly affected
by the cutbacks are those people with disabilities who
rely on Arc.
The majority of its consumers (as the users of the
program are called) fall into the third of four tiers.
That means most will be allotted $35,000 each year.
Those funds are meant to cover, among other
things, the costs of training and supplies, individual
coaches who help people to live independently or hold
down jobs, therapists to help with anger management
or behavior problems and transportation.
The difficulty is that the vast majority of the con-
sumers will no longer receive enough money to cover
the costs of those services.
Arc has already had to close one of its six group
homes, consolidating the residents into the other five.
Beckman said she has had to lay off workers and
shift some others from full time to part time, a move
that means those staff members have lost benefits.
But as unfortunate as the staff's problems are, the
situation is much worse for the consumers.
Most of the men and women who rely on Arc count
on the stability of routine and the guidance of their

SEBRING Time has expired.
Earlier this week Highlands County
Sheriff Susan Benton sent State Attorney
Jerry Hill and others her
findings of a more complete
inventory of her agency's
evidence,.as Hill requested.
The inventory was complet-
ed within a 30-day time peri-
od that began last month.
Hill set the strict time
limit of the inventory so "the Benton
public can be reassured
nothing is being hidden until after the elec-
tion," he wrote in a September press release.
Late Friday Hill responded in writing to
Benton's findings, mentioning nine areas of
"continuing concern."

Red Ribbon Week kickoff run successful fun


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK Saturday morning at
7 a.m. is too early for anything in Avon
Park, unless you are having fun.
And sprinklers.
Despite the early time, over 300
moms, dads and kids showed up as the
sun rose over the visiting bleachers for
the traditional Red Ribbon Run at Joe
Franza Stadium in Avon Park.
Parents and kids from kindergarten
ages to high school come from all over
the county to race for medals and tro-
phies at the event.
The school with the biggest atten-
dance wins a special prize.


And an unanticipated sprinkler sched-
ule on the football field just added to the
fun. L
"There is always a good turnout for
this event," said event organizer Sherry
Harter as she scrambled to move the tro-
phy table. "This is a fun run, and the kids
just add to the excitement."
Harter also serves as the Safe and
Drug Free Schools coordinator for
Highlands County.
"We've been practicing for this all
year," said Venessa Sinness, mother of
Jordan Sinness, the first-place winner of
the kindergarten girls one-lap race.

Fire station renovations behind

schedule due to water leaks


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Members of
the city council will be asked
to approve an extension of
the completion date for the
fire station renovations at
their regular meeting
Tuesday in city council
chambers at 6:30 p.m.
The delay is the result of
water intrusion from the
exterior of the building, pri-
marily through windows
which are not thoroughly
sealed.
The completion date was
to have been Oct. 8, which
means the project is 11 days
behind schedule.
The contractor,
Orangewood Builders, is
reluctant to go ahead with
further interior work until
the leaks have been fixed as


there is too much chance of
potential damage to newly
completed interior finishes.
A revised timeline calls
for sealing and testing the
windows by Oct. 24.
The city council will be
asked to agree to a revised
substantial interior comple-
tion date of Nov. 5.
That will be followed by
the walk through inspection,
occurring over three days,
Nov. 6-8.
The completion of the
truck bay floor refinishing
will be completed by Nov.
12.
All items found in the
inspection to be in need of
adjustment should be com-
pleted by Nov. 22.
The exterior work on the
fire station is a separate con-
tract being completed and


funded under the guidance
of the insurance adjuster.

Hearing for utilities
purchase set
The Sebring city council
will be conducting a public
hearing prior to the opening
of the council's regular
meeting Tuesday evening at
6:30 p.m. in the council's
chamber. Up for discussion
will be the proposed pur-
chase of the Highlands
Utilities Corp. Sewer
System.
The purchase will come
up for a vote during the reg-
ular meeting.
Also on the regular meet-
ing's agenda will be a dis-
cussion regarding the pur-
chase of Sebring Airport
Authority's water and waste-
water system.

SEBRING In an effort
to protect citizens from iden-
tity theft, the Federal Trade
Commission is requiring
financial institutions and
creditors to create identity
theft protection programs.
This new policy, called
Red Flag Rules, is the result
of the Fair and Accurate
Credit Transactions Act of
2003.
Because the city is
responsible for utility
accounts, it must implement
such a program to protect its
customers. The commission
expects this to be done by
Nov. 1.

What's Broken
While it's not a safety
issue, a sign letting driv-

from a road (whatever
happened to 'dead end'

assessment, city attorney
Robert Swaine will be pre-
senting the city council with
a plan at Tuesday's regular
meeting.
It is intended to identify
the red flags that will alert
staff when accounts are
opened using false informa-
tion and provides measures
of how to respond.
Some of the tell-tale dis-
crepancies staff will look
for, for example, will be
alteration of documents,
inconsistent information,
fraud or active duty alerts
included with consumer
reports, personal informa-
tion that does not match
other sources of informa-
tion, or information that
does match that of another


utility customer.
Responses will range from
asking for more documenta-
tion, refusing to open the
account (or closing it), noti-
fying the internal manager,
to notifying law enforce-
ment.
The plan also includes a
set of 10 rules regarding the
handling and storage of doc-
uments and information in
the office.
Laptop computers, for
instance will be restricted to
those with a need to use
them for the job, and will be
keep in a secure place; paper
records will be shredded
before going in the trash,
and visitors will not be
allowed without an escort.


Working To Make
Highlands County Better


Filling the vacancy
created when Terry
Feickert retired as
Avon Park's fire
chief


With the city facing budget-
ary shortfalls there was dis-
cussion that the police and
fire department should be
combined under a single
command.


According to Sarah Adelt,
city manager, Captain Steve
Marquart who had been
serving in Feickert's place
since he retired and until a
final decision could be made
- has done so well there
are no plans to change. He
will remain in charge with
the title Captain/Acting Chief.
It has been decided the
needs of the police and fire
departments are too different
for a single command to be
efficient.


Red Cross warns to beware


of common choking hazards


By PHIL ATTINGER
Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK On
Thursday, Sept. 11, Arthur
Bostick got the call no parent
wants to hear: His 14-year-old
son, Antonio, was choking at
Avon Park Middle School.
He raced over, calling
ahead to warn school staff that
he would not show ID at the
main office.
"By the time I got there,
(Antonio) was smiling,"
Arthur Bostick said.
Debi Phelps, an ESE
teacher, had saved his life.
During snack time, Antonio
had been eating a popular sug-
ary cereal when he started
choking. She used her Red
Cross training and helped him
dislodge the food.
It was the second time in
four months that school staff
saved a child from choking.
On May 29, Susan Prohaska,
the school Health Tech, helped
a 12-year-old boy choking on
a large piece of glazed dough-
nut at a classroom party.
Both women got their train-
ing from the Red Cross. The
' HighlandS- Red Cross awarded
Prohaska during its June 17
Volunteer Recognition Dinner
and awarded Phelps during the
Oct. 7 Highlands County
School Board meeting.
"We appreciate not just this
act (of saving a life), but what
(Phelps and Prohaska) do
every day," said Ned Hancock,
Chair of the School Board.
"We also appreciate the Red
Cross for training and recog-
nizing them."
Phelps once used Red Cross
training on a choking guest
when she worked at Walt
Disney World, and once when
her daughter ate too much too
fast. Prohaska and her husband
used the training this summer
when a visiting grandchild was

choking.
More than 3,000 people die
each year as a result of chok-
ing.
Some of the leading causes
are:
Trying to swallow large
pieces of poorly chewed food.
Drinking alcohol before
or during meals, since alcohol
dulls nerves that aid in swal-
lowing.
Wearing dentures,
because dentures make it diffi-
cult to tell if food is fully
chewed.
Eating while talking
excitedly or laughing.
Eating too fast.
Walking, playing, or run-
ning with food or objects in
the mouth.
These situations can occur

rin social settings. Some hejp-
ful tips to prevent choking
include:
Have children sit at a
table while they eat.
Do not let children eat
too fast.
+ Give infants soft food
that they do not need to chew.
Do not give infants and
young children foods like nuts,
grapes, popcorn or raw vegeta-

Cut foods that a child can

dogs, into small pieces.
Supervise children while

Worse is when you see that your
congressman is the butt of the joke,
not a guest selling a book.
Worst is the fact that he is the sec-
ond representative in a row to have
made your congressional district a
laughingstock and object of pity.
Don't mistake the light tone used
here to think we are in any way
amused. Our sense 'of betrayal and
outrage runs deep.
At a time when all of us need to be
focused, finding common ground
and solving problems, it is infuriat-
ing that a man who is supposed to
lead would engage in behavior that
can only alienate citizens and dis-
tract from the work to be done.
We don't know what is more
harmful, the pain and suffering
Mahoney is causing his family, the


betrayal of our faith in him, his turn-
ing out to be another rotten apple in
the barrel of Congress, the embar-
rassment to his staff (and putting
their jobs at risk), his arrogant ado-
lescent behavior, his dismissal of his
marriage vows or being yet another
pathetic example of someone who
puts his physical pleasure before all
else.
When we think of Mahoney's
hypocrisy, running in 2006 as some-
one, "who believes in faith, family,
and personal responsibility," when
really he was just a billy goat with
no impulse control, using his family
as a stage prop well, it makes us
seethe.
Especially because he was the

There was no debate
between Biden, Palin
Editor:
I believe like many others,
enough of the Biden-Palin
"debate." A debate, it was
not. When Sarah Palin
walked out on the stage, that
is exactly what she was
doing. She was speaking
"May I call you Joe?" and
playing to the camera to gain
recognition for herself.
Winking to the audience,
documented by the lenses
was not of help to John
McCain's for election. She
openingly let everyone,
including the debate auditor,
know Sarah Palin was not
going to play by the rules.
She was going to speak
"straight talk" to the people.
That transparency of char-
acter appears to be letting us
know beforehand when she
gets to Washington, "I'm
going to run it my way."
George W. and Dick
Cheney has done exactly that
and look where we are.
McCain would not know
how, or be decisive enough to
rein her in, anymore than
George Bush could stop
Cheney, even if he wanted to.
Sarah Palin did not help
anyone but herself by wink-
ing to the camera and trying
to be cute.
Let me tell you what the
KJV of the Bible has to say
about that.
Proverbs chapter 4, verse
24: "Put away from thee a
froward mouth (willfully
contrary, not easily managed)
and perverse lips put far from
thee.
Let thine eyes look right
on and let thine eyelids look
straight before thee.
Could Sarah Palin be look-
ing toward a political career
in 2012? Establishing her
identity worldwide, meeting
heads of state, through the
use of John McCain and cam-
paign? If McCain wins so
much the better for her!
If he loses, she has accom-
plished recognition at John
McCain's expense. Sarah
Palin has sniffed the aroma
of Washington wealth and
power she appears to crane.
Control and power is not


outside the prison of view
and possibility. Her body lan-
guage and words appear to
conflict ...
The Governor likens her-
self to a pit bull, not very
flattering, nor helpful to her
court hearing, though it may
shed some light in gray areas.
In any case, I find no reason
to dispute her self-analysis.
I have visited and driven
much over much of the state
of Alaska and the Alaskan
highway from Fairbanks to
White Court, Alberta,
Canada, also visiting the oil
pipelines. I subscribed to the
Daily Miner, though it was a
week old when it arrived in
Sebring. It is my understand-
ing revenue to every man,
woman and child was being
paid every year long before
Sarah Palin came on the
political scene in Anchorage,
though she may have been
mayor in Wasilla at the time.
Knowledge is power. We
need o be vigilant and curi-
ous!
Let's not leap before we
look. That little black mark
cannot be erased or blotted
out!

endorses, aids or supports an
act of killing another person,
that person becomes an
accessory to murder. You are
guilty of murder before the
fact as well as guilty after the
fact. It appears to me that
you would be guilty twice for
each of the millions of inno-
cent babies. In murders other
than of an unborn child any-
one who enables, supports or
aids in an actual murder is
guilty of murder two mur-
ders.
Just prior to the presiden-
tial election in 1992 a friend
asked me if I was going to
vote for H.W. Bush or Bill
Clinton. I replied "Well I
really don't agree with either
but since Bush changed his
position on abortions when
he ran with Reagan and
Clinton goes along with the
pro-death position, I will vote
for Bush." My friend's
response was, "But without
abortions we would be flood-
ed with all these welfare
babies." ...
I am fairly certain that my
friend thought no further
about the babies murdered
and today more than 10 mil-
lion more babies have been
killed. I am not addressing
those that make no claim to
follow Christ and His teach-
ings, but I am writing to
those "church members" and
the ones that call themselves
Christians to conduct your
voting choices in line with
biblical truths. There are cer-
tain principles that never
change even if our values
may. "Thou shalt not murder"
is not only a principle but a
commandment.
If you vote for a party plat-
form that "provides" legality
to murder, you are an acces-
sory to murder, mass murder.
Rest assured you will not be
judged by me or other
Christians, but by God
Himself. There is time to
repent of your sins or you
can risk your destiny. Read

How can Obama
profess to be
Christian?
Editor:
This is an open letter to N.
Pelosi, J. Biden and B.H.
Obama. Note: I did not use
their titles as representatives
of our great country. Why?
Because they claim to be
Christians yet believe in
abortion anytime throughout
the nine month gestation
period, including partial-birth
abortion and killing the new-
born baby should he, or she,
survive being aborted.
N. Pelosi made the state-
ment: "I am a Catholic and
read my Bible and did not
find any verses prohibiting
abortion. I procured seven
pages of verses from the
Internet, through our pastor
and compared them with the
Catholic Bible, (The New
American Bible) and my
Bible (The King James
Version) and found absolute-
ly no difference between the
verses in either Bible.
The term, abortion, was
not in the Hebrew language
when the Old and New
Testaments were written, but
it is very clear that abortion
is prohibited. The word
"Kill" is used very extensive-
ly throughout both Bibles
when referring to a woman
carrying a child in the womb.
The term, abortion, did not
come into the English lan-
guage until the United
Kingdom came into exis-
tence, which was several
thousand years later. Thus, N.
Pelosi is correct that she
could not find the word abor-
tion in her Catholic Bible,
but the word kill is very com-
mon in both Bibles.
One of the tenants of the
Catholic church is abortion is
prohibited. Consequently, N.


Pelosi and J. Biden are
absolutely wrong in their
belief even though the U.S.
Supreme Court approved
abortion in 1972. The abor-
tion mills, including Planned
Parenthood, have killed in
excess of 40 million unborn
children. Maybe someday we
will remove this ugly stigma
of murder from our country.
B.H. Obama professes to
be a Christian and has
accepted Jesus Christ as his
savior. I ask you, Obama,
how are you able to believe
in abortion, when the Bible is
very clear about killing the
unborn?
I will list several verses for
you: N. Pelosi, J. Biden and
B.H. Obama to read I'll be
totally amazed if any of you
read them.
Genesis 25:23, Exodus
21:22-25, Psalm 127:3,
Psalm 139:13-16, Isaiah 49:1,
Jeremiah 1:5, Luke 1:39-41
and Mark 10:7-8.

No trust in Obama
for president
Editor:
A key quality of successful
leadership is trust, but trust
has to be earned. This has
been proven regardless of the
place of the leader: home,
nation, church, work place.
One of the greatest books I
have ever read on leadership
(other than the Bible:
Nehemiah, Ruth, David,
Esther, Jesus, etc.) is The 21 '
Irrefutable Laws of
Leadership, by John C.
Maxwell, published by
Thomas Nelson Publishers.
Number nine is, "The Law of
Magnetism: Who you are, is
who you attract" and number
11 is, "The Law of the Inner
Circle: A leader's potential is
determined by those closet to
him." The truthfulness of
these statements/laws has
been proven over centuries.
If I am not personally
acquainted with a person to
establish trust, then I must
rely on what that person says,
writes, and actions as a basis
for trust. This being true as
well as the aforementioned
laws of leadership, I do not

Protecting marriage with Amendment 2


With all the emphasis on
the presidential campaign,
people may have forgotten
that there are also questions
on the Florida ballot, in par-
ticular Amendment 2, which
defines marriage as the union
between one man and one
woman.
Many people wonder why,
since Florida law already
defines marriage as the union
of one man and one woman,
do we need to amend the
state constitution. One only
has to look to Massachusetts
and California for the reason:
Rogue judges who ignore the

will of the people.
Massachusetts had laws
defining marriage, but there
was nothing in their state
constitution. People were
told that it wasn't necessary.
Then to their surprise,
activist judges, deciding they
knew better than the legisla-
ture, tossed the law aside,
and redefined marriage. What
is worse after they forced the
state to redefine marriage to


include same-sex couples,
they demanded that every
institution under any state
control promote the redefini-
tion. The judges told Catholic
Charities that unless they
were willing to give babies to
same-sex couples they could
no longer offer adoption
services. The Catholic
Archdiocese of Boston could
not comply with such an
unreasonable demand and is
therefore no longer in the
adoption business.

Officer dummy on the prowl in AP


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.ba/ldidge@newssun.con
AVON PARK Sure, that
officer sitting in the car is a
dummy, but he is smarter than
the drivers who slow down
when they see him.
To help combat crime, the
Avon Park Police Department
is putting mannequins in
patrol cars at strategic spots
around town, along U.S. 27
and other places where they
can be highly visible to
oncoming traffic.
Or to potential criminals.
From a distance, the fake
officer looks real enough.
"I came through here twice
before I realized that it was
not a real officer," said Ray
Plesher, an Avon Park resi-
dent.
"I kept wondering why that
police car was not moving,
and I immediately hit the
brakes every time I see him,"
Plesher said.
"It's better than getting a
ticket though," he added.
"This is a project I brought
with me from Daytona," Avon
Park Police Chief Matthew
Doughney said.
"We had a spare police car
parked outside our building,
and I asked the officers, 'How
many crimes have been com-
mitted in our parking lot?'
The answer was none," said
Doughney.

On of the Avon Park Police Department's 'ghost cars,' complete with a uniformed man-
nequin, sits as a deterrent last week.


"We call them "ghost cars"
and they are an effective use
of the extra equipment.
"The day shift puts it out
there and the night shift
brings it home, and we change
the location frequently," he
explained.
The ghost cars and officer
dummy are also available for
other uses as well.
According to Doughney, if
there is a complaint of speed-
ing in a residential area, he
would be more than happy to
put a car out there.


"After a day or so of having
the ghost car out there, we can
then put out a real officer with
a radar gun, and give that offi-
cer the discretion of whether
to write a ticket or not. That
way, we keep the effective-
ness of the program in the
long run.
"They are a strong visual
deterrent. I cannot tell you
what the return on them are, I
just know that if someone was
planning on robbing Publix,
and saw that car, they would
probably head up the road,"


Doughney said.
"It serves the public better
out there than parked in our
lot."

According to the Red


Ribbon Campaign Web site,
Enrique (Kiki) Camarena was
a Drug Enforcement
Administration Agent who
was tortured and killed in
Mexico in 1985.
Camarena worked his way
through college, served in the
Marines and became a police
officer.
When he decided to join the
DEA, his mother tried to talk
him out of it. "I'm only one
person", he told her, "but I
want to make a difference."
The DEA sent Camarena to
work undercover in Mexico,
investigating a major drug
cartel believed to include offi-
cers in the Mexican army,
police and government.
According to reports, on
Feb. 7, 1985, the 37-year-old
Camarena left his office to
meet his wife for lunch.
Five men appeared at the
agent's side and shoved him
in a car.
One month later, his body
was found. He had been tor-
tured to death.
In honor of Camarena's

Parents, sick of the destruc-

Some of these new coali-

make a difference.
These coalitions also

McCain's voting If you don't vote,
record for troops you're part of
is horrific the problem


Editor:
Not that many know just
how horrific McCain's voting
record is when it comes to
the troops. Whether it is for
armor and equipment, for
veteran's health care, for ade-
quate troop rest or anything
that actually supports our
troops.
August 2001: McCain
voted against increasing the
amount for medical care of
veterans by $659 million.
April 2003: McCain urged
Senate members to table a
vote to provide more than $1
billion for National Guard
and Reserve equipment in
Iraq related to a shortage of
helmets, tents bullet-proof
inserts and tactical vests.
October 2003: McCain
voted against an amendment
by Senator Dodd that called
for an additional $322 mil-
lion for safety equipment
used by United States forces
in Iraq.
March 2004: McCain
voted for tax loopholes over
veterans when he voted
against creating a reserve
fund to allow for an increase
..in Veterans medical care by
$1.8 billion. McCain love
those tax loopholes for cor-
porations, since he voted for
them over veterans needs.
March 2006: McCain
voted against increasing vet-
erans medical services fund-
ing by $1.5 billion to be paid
for by closing corporate tax
loopholes.
April 2006: McCain was
one of 13 Senators to vote
against $430,000,000 to the
Department of Veterans
Affairs that was to be used
for medical services, treat-
ment of veterans and outpa-
tient care.
May 2006: McCain voted
against an amendment that
would provide $20 million to
the Department of Veterans
Affairs for health care facili-
ties.
June 2006: McCain voted
against a resolution that Bush
start withdrawing troops
from Iraq.
February 2007: McCain
didn't show up and vote
against a resolution con-
demning the surge.
March 2007: McCain did-
n't vote on a bill that would
require the start of a draw
down in troop levels.
July 2007: McCain voted
against a plan to lower troop
levels in Iraq.
September 2007: McCain
voted against the Webb
amendment calling for ade-
quate troop rest between
deployments.
And now McCain is going
to change? Give me a break!
Any veteran who votes for
McCain should be ashamed
of themselves.
If McCain is so wonderful,
why don't we see the leaders
of the Republican Party,
Bush and Cheney, out there
campaigning for him?

Editor:
After much information
gathering regarding the legit-
imacy of Barack Obama's
loyalty to our nation, I will
be voting for John McCain
and as for the lag time, need-
ed to keep cash within our
economic framework.
Global Mae and Mac loan
repercussions will seek out
the help of the left to move
into a whole new system.
And with numerous intrana-
tional job losses, now is not
the time to change over and
implement the new identifi-
cation along with dollars to
credits. The chaos involved
will be much more complex
with many cultural groups
fighting to survive.
The United States govern-
ment's intentional waste of
(joe six packs) sweaty dollar.
Let's keep the ability to.,
spend cash. Everyone needs
to minimize their purchases
to necessities and practice a
little humility and remember
that no matter who gets elect-
ed, your taxes are going up.
But it's the alternate motives
that will undermine your
ability to keep control of
your finances in such insta-
bility.
There are many minority
groups that cannot survive
without the ability to live on
day to day cash. Don't
believe the liberal media as
they were supposed to be our
watch dogs all through the
years of those high flying,
wasteful administrations. Fox
News is mainly right. If you

Stop the partisan
rhetoric and
get to work
Editor:
Enough is enough! My
401K is losing value by the
minute. My future is any-
thing but secure despite plan-
ning and saving. Thousands
of people in Highlands
County have no health insur-
ance or access to routine
health care. The food pantries
in our county are out of food
and people are hungry. The
financial markets all over the
world are unstable. The stock
market is a roller coaster. All
of this in the last month of a
presidential election cam-
paign.
What are the candidates
saying? Where is the leader-
ship? I want to know what
the next president will do to
stabilize the economy, to cre-
ate jobs, to reduce the deficit,
to provide access to health
care for the millions of
Americans who are without
health insurance. I have
neighbors who can not afford
the prescription drugs that
keep them healthy and func-
tioning. I am afraid to open
my 401K statement.
Some months ago, I heard
Sen. McCain say that he
would run a campaign on


issues. He pledged to avoid
negative personal attacks. I
am disappointed that this
honorable man has chosen
the low road. Sen. Obama
could be more specific about
his plans to fix the health
care crisis, as could Sen
McCain. Both men should
step up and be a voice of rea-
son.
This is an opportunity for
both of these good men to
show real leadership.
Americans are worried about
their future. There is real fear
of losing my home, my job,
my health insurance, my
future. It is time to stop talk-
ing about something that
happened 40 years ago and
start talking about real solu-
tions to the financial crisis in
America. Stop the partisan
rhetoric and get to work!
The one who speaks to my
concerns, who is committed
to working across party lines,
who offers realistic solutions
is the one who will is likely
to get my vote. I urge all of
us to get serious about the
serious problems in our
country. This is not the time
for negative campaigns and
mud slinging. This is the
time to find ways to promote
financial security and provide
affordable quality health care
to all Americans. If we
remain divided across party
lines, we will fail. However,
working together we can do
anything.

Amendment 2 deserves attention


Continued from page 4A
covered that his daughter's
teacher would be presenting
fairy stories that equated
same-sex relationships with
those between a man and a
woman. He went to the
school to ask simply to be
informed before this lesson
was presented. When the
school officials refused, he
said perhaps rashly that
he wasn't going to leave
until they told him. They
called the police and had
him dragged off in hand-
cuffs. The case went to
court and the Massachusetts
judge ruled that the father
had no right to that informa-
tion because changing the
law on marriage meant that
the entire curriculum had to
be changed starting in
kindergarten to reflect the
redefinition of marriage and
that if he didn't like it he
could send his child to pri-
vate school.
In California in 2000, the
people overwhelmingly
passed a law by referendum
defining marriage as
between one man and one
woman, but this year judges
ruled that the law was
unconstitutional and forced
a redefinition of marriage
on the state. The people
were able to mount a new
referendum campaign, this
* time to amend the state con-


stitution. It will be voted on
in November.
Contrary to the claims of
the opponents of
Amendment 2, its passage
will not change any current
regulations or laws.
Anything that same-sex
couples or anyone else can
do now they will be able to
do after Amendment 2 pass-
es. It will simply take the
current law and put it in the
state constitution. The goal
is to preserve what we have
and prevent rogue judges in
the future from imposing
their will on the state. It is
sad that we have to amend
our state constitution, but
we simply cannot trust
judges to recognize the sep-
aration of powers.
When the push to rede-
fine marriage began, those
opposed to this change
warned that if marriage
were redefined to include
same-sex couples there
would be numerous legal
consequences. Supporters of
the change dismissed these
warnings as fear-mongering,
but everything predicted and
much more has come to
pass. In those places where
marriage has been rede-
fined, those who oppose the
change have suffered. A
pastor was arrested in
Sweden for preaching from
scripture. Several bishops


have been sued. Teachers
censored. A printer fined.
All because they spoke out
or wrote on this issue, doing
nothing more than referenc-
ing scripture.
This amendment isn't
about people's private sexu-
al behavior; it is designed to
protect freedom of religion,
freedom of speech, and the
right of parents to direct the
education of their children.
The opponents of
Amendment 2 have tried to
frighten seniors by claiming
that the amendment might
affect their social security
benefits. This is utter non-
sense. The courts have
already ruled on this issue.
The goal of the amendment
is to prevent any change
forced on the people of
Florida by activist judges.
Marriage is a natural
institution. It is not a cre-
ation of the state. Marriage
provides the glue between
the biological father and
mother and their children.
The state has a duty to pro-
tect that relationship. The
state has no right to call
something that is not a mar-
riage a marriage.

Evidence inventory meets deadline


Continued from page 1A
They mainly dealt with
items still considered missing
and their effects on the corre-
sponding cases, but overall
Hill was satisfied with the
departments handling of the
inventory.
"They pulled out all the
stops to accomplish this in the
time frame we discussed,"
Hill told the News-Sun
Friday.
One thing not mentioned in
the numbered areas of "con-
tinuing concern" was the fact
that the review was done in-
house.
"While I would have pre-
ferred the entire process be
done by an independent enti-
ty, I understand that was not
possible given the time
demand we agreed on," Hill
wrote in the letter.
Members of the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement's Fort Myers
Regional Operations Center
were brought in as an outside
party to review a selection of
the results and help ensure
accuracy of the final invento-
ry.
"All requested items of evi-
dence/property were located
and physically inspected by
myself," wrote Chief Michael
Rafferty of the FDLE in a let-
ter dated Oct. 8.
Hill acknowledged this in
his letter to Benton, stating
"the FDLE review was help-
ful."
The main 'issue arising
through the missing evidence
is its effect on open or current
cases.
"Every item taken into the
evidence room must be prop-
erly processed or it can in fact
become the centerpiece of an
effective defense, and may
well adversely affect the ulti-
mate outcome of a prosecu-
tion," Hill's letter stated.
This was they key point
hammered on by the Police
Benevolent Association.
"Everything (in the evi-
dence room) is now suspect as
far as for criminal defense
lawyers," said Jim Spearing,
a political consultant for the
PBA that lobbies on behalf of
the organization in
Tallahassee.
He did not comment about
whether the organization was
satisfied with the results of
the final inventory, only stat-
ing "now (Benton) is taking it
seriously, now she is doing
something about it."
Benton said she acknowl-
edges there was a problem
and is taking responsibility.
"We were overwhelmed,
we ran out of space, and


human error was a huge part,"
she told the News-Sun Friday
night. "We feel really confi-
dent that the problems have
been identified, solutions
have been implemented and
the future is only going to be
better."
The PBA has done its share
to ensure the future is with
Benton's opponent Ron
Grimming at the helm.
"We don't want (Benton) to
be re-elected," Spearing said.
"We think she has totally
shown she is incapable of
handling this job."
Benton said the PBA is
overemphasizing the evidence
issue for its own political rea-
sons.
"My opponent,-going back
to the 90's from Illinois, he
was the selected applicant
from the PBA ... he has a rela-
tionship with the PBA since
then," she said. "The PBA
wants Grimming so they can
control the sheriff's office.
They can't control me."
According to Benton, the
PBA has contributed $2,000
to Grimming's campaign, but
that's not the lion's share of

the money it has funneled into
Highlands county.
"The PBA have spent
upward of $40,000 on adver-
tising," Benton said. "They
can say it's against me, but
it's on behalf of Mr.
Grimming all those mail-
ings, all the radio spots, the
PBA has endless funds."
At the end of the phone
interview, Benton added that
if she doesn't win the elec-
tion, it's because she's not a
politician, saying the wants to
be the-sheriff "only to~-serve
the people."
"I would like to continue to
serve as the sheriff because I
know our folks and I know
our needs," she said.


Budget cuts force tough choices


From the letter State Attorney Jerry Hill
sent to Sheriff Susan Benton dated Oct. 17:

Some areas of continuing concern to me are:
1. A missing firearm. It is possible it was destroyed. It is
equally possible that it was not.
2. Missing drugs, including pills and methamphetamine.
3. Cannabis cases will continue to be problematic for the
prosecution for some time to come. As we have already seen,
some cases have been compromised, and we are having to lit-
igate defense motions as a result.
4. Thirty-one additional items remain unaccounted for and
their whereabouts are unknown.
5. The new inventory reveals an additional forty-eight items
missing. While they may have been initially categorized as
"found property or non-criminal" items, the ability to change
that status is gone.
6. Some items characterized as having no evidentiary value
include found narcotics and paraphernalia. There is no indica-
tion as to the weight or amount of narcotics found and their
current location or condition is unknown.
7. Of particular concern are the items relating to the
Feathers and Jaramillo homicides. If the evidence in the
Feathers case has now been located, we still need to know
where it has been and whether the integrity has been compro-
mised. More importantly, the reports indicate a number of
items of evidence in the Jaramillo case are unable to be locat-
ed. We need to know what the items are and what happened
to them. While these are open investigations and not subject
to public disclosure, we need to be privately briefed on these
matters.
8 It appears that virtually all items in the Newell report, in
February 2008, remain unaccounted for as of today. The rec-
onciliation occurring after this report has accounted for some
items. Additionally, some problems brought out were dealt with
rather promptly such as proper installation of a fire extinguish-
er. emergency lighting and improved staffing.
9. A practice used periodically the last several years has
been to allow "volunteer" help, such as cadets, to work the evi-
dence room. Given the personnel shortages and ability to
closely supervise these individuals, that could easily result in
some of the problems we've seen. Hopefully, it can in the
future be properly staffed with professionals who understand
evidence, such as Sgt. Casey and Sissy High.

tion systems provide con-
sumers with a sense of well
being, usefulness and self
worth.
Now many of them will
no longer to be able to come
to Arc's center some
because they won't have the
funds for the programs,
some because they will no
longer have transportation to
get there and others will
have their time with their
coaches reduced.
Sadly, Beckman said,'the
vast majority will have noth-
ing to replace what they
have lost. That means
instead of having the support
of friends and the stimula-
tion of activities, most will'
end up spending their days
watching television, she
said.
There is a real risk some
consumers, left unguided
and drifting, could become
vulnerable to predators, or
lose hard-won skills, becom-
ing bored and getting into
trouble because of inappro-
priate behavior.
In an effort to soften the
blow of fewer services, the
Agency for Persons With
Developmental Disabilities
- the agency charged with
carrying out the legislature's
mandates decided to have
the consumers prioritize
their own services. In other
words, consumers had to
choose what services to give
up if they could no longer
afford them all.
The complication is that
most have no real concept of
what they are facing.
Wednesday was the final
day of the old system, mean-
ing it was also the last day at
the center for many. It was
only on Thursday, when the
buses that had always picked
them up at a certain time
didn't arrive, or the coach
who always drove up didn't,
that the difference in their
lives sunk in.
It has left these vulnerable
individuals feeling confused,
sad, frustrated and angry.
Take Tina Marie Miller,


who has been coming to Arc
five days a week for seven
years. She lives in a group
home in Wauchula and
counted on a bus service to
get her to Avon Park.
Now she will be stuck at
the home with much less to
do.
"I do not like what they're
doing to us," she said. "I like
it here. I love my teachers. I
love my friends. I like arts
and crafts and cooking.
Wanda (Colon, a program
specialist), she's special. I'm
upset." She gave Colon a'
big hug. Tina and her fellow
art students were working on'
drawings for Christmas
cards a national company
was interested in creating for
the season.
Lynda Sue Talios was one
of the consumers who had to
move from one group home
to another when Arc consoli-
dated recently.
It was her fourth move
and she hated it.
True, she admits the new
house is bigger and prettier,
and she likes her house
mates (there are seven of
them, group homes are sup-
posed to house up to six at a
time), but she used to live
near downtown in Avon
Park, with paved roads and
street lights.
Now she lives in the coun-
try, on a rough dirt road
where she cannot ride her
bicycle.
"I can't stand it out there,"
she said in an interview
Wednesday. "It's nature out
there. There are snakes. No
neighbors are around. I get
scared at night (after dark). I
get really scared real bad. I
had to pack and help them
move everything. I hated
that. I wish I was going
back."
Rodney Walker, while
fairly independent and shar-
ing an apartment with anoth-
er consumer, will also be
hard hit. He works three
evenings a week doing jani-
torial chores for the county
at the government annex and
courthouse. Three days a

week he also went to the Arc
center, where he earned
money on the irrigation proj-
ects, or helped keep the
building clean between
assignments.
As of Thursday morning
he will no longer attend Arc.
Worse, his time with his
coaches one helped with
life skills, like shopping and
paying bills, and another
helped him with his, jobs -
is being cut way back.-This
means he will notsee-them
as much in person, and will
have"to curtail his frequent
calls for support and conver-
sation. He is another individ-
ual who will enid up with
unstructured time on his
hands.
Speaking with him on
Wednesday, his last day at
the center which he has
attended for 10 years it
was clear he had no concept
of how his life was about to
change.
In an effort to save servic-
es, and help their consumers
gain a voice, Beckman and
her staff conducted a letter-
writing campaign and invit-
ed the Highlands County
state legislative team to the
center to met individuals and
listen to their concerns.
Denise Grimsely came in
person and J. D. Alexander
sent a representative.
That doesn't mean any-
thing can be changed, how-
ever.
Melanie Etters, communi-
cations director for the
Agency for Persons With
Developmental Disabilities,
sympathizes, but can do
nothing.
"Any time a program has
to change," she said, "it is a
difficult time. We tried to be
fair, and hope natural sup-
ports and community sup-
ports will fill the gaps."
Beckman is not so sure.
"We can only scream so
loud," she said. "We work
years to teach independence;
it's heartbreaking to think of
them wandering the streets."

Safest place
to keep your
money is still
in a bank
Special to the News-Sun
OKEECHOBEE
Riverside Bank is reassuring
bank customers that while
financial woes plague Wall
Street, the safest place for
your money is still in the
bank.
"Riverside Bank is well
prepared to ride out the eco-
nomic storm," explained John
Williams, Regional President.
"And our customers should
know that their deposits are
safe. No customer has ever
lost a penny of federally
insured deposits."
To help customers under-
stand the strength of the
banking industry, consider
the following facts:
Banks are equipped to
handle economic shifts.
Banks have significant capi-
tal, or a rainy-day fund, on
reserve for tough economic
times. This is a bank's first
line of defense to cover any
losses. Riverside Bank meets
all of the regulatory require-
ments of a well-capitalized
bank.
No customer has ever
lost a penny in insured
deposits. The FDIC protects
consumers from losing their
money. Even better, the
agency has temporarily raised
its coverage amount from
$100,000 to $250,000 per
depositor through December
31, 2009. There are legal and
safe ways to get even more
FDIC coverage depending on
how you set up your
accounts. Ask a banker at a

Trinity Tots celebrates 20 years


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
2008-09 school year marks
Trinity Tots Preschool's 20th
year of early childhood edu-
cation. The school celebrated
with an outdoor picnic,
including a bounce house,
games, "Big Al" from Toby's
Clowns, prizes and food.
Parents and children enjoyed
a fun morning. Each child
also received a school T-shirt.
Beginning in September of
1989 as a mother's morning
out program, Trinity Tots


Preschool soon developed
into a fully licensed pre-
school. Offering two classes
for 3-year olds and two class-
es for 4-year old VPK chil-
dren, Susan Norris has been
the director since the pre-
school began and six addi-
tional staff members are part
of the school's teaching team.
Trinity Tots offers early
childhood education in a
Christian environment. The
school believes that teaching
and encouraging Biblical
principals, values and morals


as well as providing for the
development of good learn-
ing habits will give a strong
foundation for young chil-
dren to build their lives on. It
provides opportunities for
each child to leam and grow
spiritually, socially, emotion-
ally, physically and intellec-
tually.
Trinity Tots Preschool is a
ministry of Trinity Lutheran
Church, located at 25
Lakeview St. in Lake Placid.
For more information, please
call 465-6313.


Banks are still safe place for savings


Continued from page 9A ,
FDIC-insured bank how. Riverside Bank can
provide FDIC coverage up to $50 million
due to its membership in a network called
Certificate of Deposit Account Registry
Service, or CDARS. Contact a Riverside
representative for details.
The majority of banks are healthy.
Most banks have been around for decades
and are likely to be around for many more.


Out of 8,430 banks in the country as of
August 2008, only 13 (about 1/10th of one
percent) have failed this year. In the unlike-
ly event that a bank would fail, customers
would continue to have uninterrupted access
to their money.
For more information, stop by your local
office or call the Customer Care Center at
800-741-3283.

Home construction falls sharply in September


Associated Press
WASHINGTON Construction of
new homes plunged by a bigger-than-
expected amount in September as builders
slashed production to the slowest pace
since early 1991, when the country was in
a deep recession. A barometer of future
building also dropped to the weakest level
in more than 25 years.
The building industry is on pace to con-


struct the fewest new homes and apart-
ments this year since the end of World
War II.
The Commerce Department reported
Friday that construction of new homes
and apartments dropped by 6.3 percent
last month, a much bigger decline than the
1.6 percent decrease that had been expect-
ed. It pushed total production to a season-
ally adjusted annual rate of 817,000 units.


That's the slowest pace since January
1991, when the U.S. was in a recession
and going through a similar painful hous-
ing correction.
The declines last month reflected weak-
ness in many parts of the country. It was
led by a 20.9 percent drop in the
Northeast, where construction of single-
family units fell to the lowest level on..
record.

I cherish two spe-
cial memories
involving children
and nature from our
back-to-back trips to
North Carolina and
then to Colorado.
We had taken our
3 1/2-year-old
grandson, Jonathon
- a nature lover to
a Christmas tree


farm near his home.
The farm also has animals to
feed and tractors to wow the
youngest of tractor lovers.
He had a blast. But my
favorite picture is of this lit-
tle guy walking ahead of us
amidst towering Christmas
trees while waving his arms
and talking out loud to them.
The outdoors speaks to him
and he couldn't help but
respond.
While on a hike in Rocky
Mountain National Park a
d e rs few weeks later, Ken and I
ders and our friends, Howard and
Alynn, passed by a mom, dad
and their young son. We
- inhaled the scents of the for-
est, enthralled by the wonder
- of nature. But, our souls
were fed even more by this
youngster.
Ken and Howard were a
little ahead of us when they
heard the boy genuinely
exclaim, "This is life!"
-^ Then as we brought up the
rear and the family drew
closer to us, the boy asked in
a voice of wonder and hope,
"Can I move here?"
His eyes were alight with
joy as he embraced the place
o_ and how it made him feel.
I couldn't help but
respond, "Sure. And I'll
move here, too!"
Of course, it's not possible

sights and sounds of
such a place take up
j residence in us
somehow. And
that's because it's
not simply 'nature.'
Pause And It's a manifestation
Consider of who God is.
osider The Bible tells us
Jan Merop in Romans 1: 20,


NIV, "For since the
creation of the world God's
invisible qualities his eter-
nal power and divine nature
- have been clearly seen,
being understood from what
has been made, so that men
are without excuse."
Many other scripture refer-
ences attest to the intricacies
and varieties in God's cre-
ation. And, yet, we so often
want to explain it away as
"mother nature" or the evolu-
tionary theory. In reality,
God has revealed himself
through his creation so that
we might be drawn to him -
who is the more magnificent,
awe-inspiring being behind
creation.
And he longs to have a
relationship with us.
We are given opportunities
to talk about our amazing
Creator God on every walk
along a roadway where wild
flowers grow; every hike into
the mountains where water-
falls surprise us, awakening
our senses; and, gazing into
the night sky twinkling with
endless stars.
Nature exclaims his
majesty. Let's do the same
and point our children to
him. Selah

Painted bunting is 'nonpareil'


Welcome to our roost! Our
subject bird today is the paint-'
ed bunting passerinaa ciris), a
bird John James Audubon
called, "nonpareil," because
he viewed it as having no
equal. We agree.
The male is one of the most
beautifully apparreled birds in
the United States. Its head and
nape are dark, shining violet-
blue. The fore back is yellow-
green and the rump dragons-
blood red. The wings and tail
are purplish-blue and the
underparts scarlet.
The female basks only in
reflected glory. Nature has
given her a protective color
against the time she broods in
a low bush, shrub, or vine.
Her back is dark blue-green,
the yellowish-green under-
parts shade to amber-yellow
on the belly; the brown wings
and tail show a faint glint of
green.
The adults are from 5 to 5.5
inches in length. Other names:
nonpareil, mariposa, paradise
fnch, Mexican Canary and
Texas canary.
The brilliant coloration of
the male bunting made it a
favorite caged bird for many
years that is, until it came
under the protection of the
federal government. However,
according to Paul W. Sykes
Jr., (U.S. Fish & Wildlife),
caging of the painted bunting
is quite common in Cuba.
Sykes is working with the
bird protection organizations
and individuals in Cuba,
attempting to discourage the
practice. Buntings that have
been tagged in the United
States have found their way as
caged birds in Cuba.
Unfortunately, this beauti-
ful species is in decline.
Specific causes for the decline
is not entirely known; howev-
er, fragmentation of eastern
forest habitat, loss due to
brown-headed cowbird para-
sitism, predation by domestic
free-roaming cats, snakes or
rodents and other undeter-
mined causes are taking their
toll.
Seeing one of these beau-
ties at your feeder is a sight to
be remembered. Our neighbor,
Gary Garrett, who lives about
a mile from us, is not a person
that gets too excited about
most anything but he can
hardly contain himself when
he calls to say, "Hey! Guess
what? I have painted buntings
at my feeder!"
For reasons unknown, we
have seen buntings rarely at
our feeders. Just for the heck
of it, we would loveit if our
readers would report their
sighting of our subject bird to
us (465-6618). According to
the Archbold-Audubon Lake
Placid Christmas Bird Count,
the five-year average sight-
ings came to 16.
According to our research,
the painted bunting does not
nest in Highlands County. Its
eastern range is from North
Carolina, moving along the
southeastern states to Florida,
on to Cuba and Panama.
Breeding season is from early
to mid-May, usually double-
brooded. Usually, three to
four, sometimes five eggs are
laid in a neat, deep cup, partly
woven around its supports, of
grasses, finer weed-stems and
leaves; lined with hair and
fine grasses.
The nest is built by the
female in as few as two days.
Eggs are white, very, very
finely speckled with chestnue-
red and purple, often with a
cap of heavier spotting at the
larger end. Incubation is by
the female alone, completed
in 11-12 days. Male is known
to feed young while female
re-nests. Not all families have
two broods. Some mate with
polygamous males, which
may at the time be mated to
double-brooded females.
Our research also tells us
that the painted bunting's


but one of the factors causing
the decline of the painted
bunting.

foliage and on the ground. It ,
does come to feeders and as
we have noticed, is easily
intimidated by sparrows,
finches and others. Again,
according to our research, the
painted bunting is very
aggressive in protecting its
territory against intrusion by
other buntings.


However, its small size is
no match against the brown-
headed cowbird, which will
lay its eggs in a bunting's
nest, causing the buntings to
hatch the eggs and feed the
baby cowbirds that have
killed and dumped the newly
hatched painted buntings out
of the nest. This parasitism is

The painted bunting doesn't nest in Highlands County, but it
does pass through and is a welcome sight when it does.

Conservation efforts have led to comeback of white-tailed deer


Many years
Sago, white-tailed
deer were nearly
exterminated in
much of the
northwest and
midwest. Today
they are more
plentiful than ever
due to hunting
News From restrictions and a
The decline in the
Watershed number of their
predators.
Corine Burgess They survive in
the big woods of northern Maine to
the deep saw grass and hammock
swamps of Florida. They thrive in
mixed farmlands, brushy areas and
timber, and can survive the desolate
cactus and thornbrush deserts of
southern Texas and Mexico. They
are as versatile as they are beauti-
ful.
The antlers are one conspicuous
feature that distinguishes the buck
from the doe. Every year the buck
sheds his antlers and grows a new
pair, usually in April or May. The
nourishment for these antlers comes
from a velvety covering of skin and


blood vessels. Antler growth and
number of "points" is determined
by the quality and quantity of food.
It has nothing to do with the buck's
age. The only way to tell the age of
a deer is by the wear of its teeth.
Generally by September, the antlers
are fully grown and the velvet dies
back and peels off. The buck aids in
the process by rubbing his antlers
against trees.
Bucks and does group separately
throughout the year and only get
together during mating season.
Some bucks mate with only one
doe, but most go from one to anoth-
er. When the doe is ready to give
birth, she leaves her group and goes
off by herself. Young does begin to
reproduce at a year and a half. The
first time they give birth, almost
without exception, it is to one fawn.
Afterwards, in years to follow, the.
doe may produce twins and some-
times triplets depending on the
abundance and quality of food.
About a month after the birthing
is over, the doe rejoins her group,
which usually consists of herself, a
yearling and two fawns. The mother
usually keeps the fawn hidden for


the first month, and the fawn rarely
moves more than 30 feet from its
birthplace. Mother never strays far
from her baby. Once this month
interval ends, the fawn begins to
travel with its mother. They gener-
ally stay where food is abundant
and cover is good. The young deer
stays with its mother for about one
year then joins its own group.
White-tailed deer don't travel
too far in their lifetime. Their range
is about two to three square miles.
They are reluctant to leave their
area because of their lack of knowl-
edge of surrounding territory.
All deer are vegetarians. They
browse and live on a diet of twigs,
shrubs, fungi, acorns, grass, herbs
and fruits. They have four stom-
achs. Deer eat fast; once they swal-
low, the food goes to the first cham-
ber, then the second where it is bro-
ken down into cud. Later when
sheltered and rested, they bring up
the cud, which is then transferred to
the other two chambers where it is
digested.
Usually, white-tailed deer are
shy and skittish; their defense being
a snorting sound when alarmed.


Courtesy photo
The white-tailed deer has made a comeback due to diligent conservation
efforts.


Often they will stamp their hooves
to alert nearby deer of danger.
When frightened, the animal will
almost always run. They are swift
and can travel 35-40 mph, jump 30
feet horizontally and 8 1/2 feet ver-
tically. If allowed to live out their
natural lives, they can survive for
up to 16 1/2 years in the wild. They
are excellent swimmers and grace-
ful runners.
Today the white-tailed deer are
more numerous than they were prior
to European settlement because
their natural enemies such as the


panther, wolves and mountain lions
are so scarce and they can survive
in most plant communities.

Good news will put you in great spirits, Aquarius


Aries (March 21-April 20) Aries,
it's OK to share the spotlight sometimes
and this week you'll do just that. It will
boost morale and portray you in an
entirely different light.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) If you
have designs to throw in the towel when
the going gets tough this week, then you
had better think again. Others look up to
you and need your leadership.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) You're
devoted to your craft this week, Gemini,
and no one can break your level of con-
centration. Just don't work so hard that
you forget to have fun in the process.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Cancer,
sticker shock leaves you reeling, but
there's not much you can do about it.
You'll have to pay the price to get some-
thing taken care of it's the lesser of
two evils.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Make the
most of time spent with a special some-
one because the days are fleeting. It will
be a while before you see this person
again. Urgent matters arrive on
Thursday.


HOROSCOPE


Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Avoid
making rash decisions, Virgo. Take all
matters into consideration and then think
about all sides of the equation. Words of
wisdom arrive from Aries.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Libra,
you're devoting all of your energy to an
upcoming relocation. In the meantime,
some other items have slipped past you
and you'll have to catch up.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) You're
all smiles when it seems everything goes
your way this week, Scorpio. Just
remember that the "high" cannot last for-
ever. Dedication to a project gets you
ahead.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -
Retrace your steps. Sagittarius. There's
something that has gone awry and you
need to pinpoint its source. You'll
receive help from an unlikely source.


Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) You're
all about frivolity this week, Capricorn.
While a bit of fun can always be a mood-
booster, too much of a good thing can do
more harm than good.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) -
Aquarius, some good news puts you in
great spirits. You'll take this bright smile
and attitude straight through the week,
where magic on Saturday causes even
more elation.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) You may
feel like you want to hide under the cov-
ers. Pisces. That's perfectly alright; just

ARTS & LEISURE


Still a few

openings

for stained

glass class
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The
stained glass class that is
being offered at the
Highlands Art League still
has a few openings for the
first session. The class
runs six weeks and all
supplies are provided.
The class runs from 9
a.m. to noon Monday,
Nov. 3 and will run
through Dec. 8. This is a
fun class that needs no
previous art experience. It
is the unique process of
coupling glass pieces
together with copper foil
and lead to form an intri-
cate art piece or a simple
design.
Beginners and
advanced students are
welcome. An art back-
ground is helpful but not
necessary, just bring
enthusiasm and wear
closed shoes.
Classes are held at the
Highlands Art League
newly renovated and re-
decorated Visual Arts
Center (orange building)
on Lake Jackson (behind
the Yellow House in
downtown Sebring.
The fee for the class is
$99, however if a member
of the Art League, it is
only $84. There is also a
fee for supplies of $30.
All class fees are to be
paid to the instructor.
For more information or
to enroll, call the instruc-
tor Betty Francisco at
471-1452, or Highlands
Art League at 385-5312.
These classes are very
limited due to individual
attention given to each
student. So it is important
to call and reserve a place
now.

Auditions set for 'Don't


Drink the Water' at HLT


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Stop the presses, sound the
alarms, hide the missiles, bring out the Secret
Police, or so Krojack of the Secret Police
keeps exclaiming.
Highlands Little Theatre is holding audi-
tions for "Don't Drink the Water," a rollicking
frolic through the Cold War when an irascible
Jewish caterer, his long suffering wife with a
penchant for cleaning and free-spirited daugh-
ter from New Jersey are mistaken for spies on
a whirlwind tour of Europe. They take asylum
in a small U.S. embassy behind the Iron
Curtain run temporarily by the ambassador's
.son, a lovable charming klutz.
Throw in a paranoid, tightly wound, head of
the secret police, a neurotic priest who spends
his time learning magic tricks, a flamboyant
chef who makes Richard Simmons look calm
and an officious assistant who sinks quickly in
schizophrenia and you have .the makings of
this hilarious Woody Allen comedy set to open
at HLT on Jan. 16, running through Feb. 1.
Auditions will be held in the Thakkar
Pavilion (adjacent to the theater) at 6:30 p.m.
Monday, Nov. 10, and Thursday, Nov. 13 and
at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 15. A total cast of 16
including four women and 12 men are needed.
One of the men's parts may be cast as a


woman, so there is great flexibility.
Major roles are:
Walter Hollander 40s-60s, irascible,
gruff but lovable, highly opinionated
Marion Hollander same age, sweetness
and light, typical Jewish mother, a yenta
Susan Hollander their daughter, early
to late 20s, free spirit, hippie
Axel Magee ambassador's son, mid 20s
to 30, handsome, klutz, antihero
Ambassador Magee 50s up, pompous,
ambitious, diplomat
Mr. or Ms. Kilroy asst to ambassador, a
toady, a yes man, efficient, non age specific.
Father Drobney neurotic priest, accent,
slightly stir crazy, 30s up
Krojack 30s up, paranoid, communist
stereotype, stiff and official
Chef any age, flamboyant, flighty, on
the verge, very out there
+ The Sultan and wife (possibly wives) -
any age
The rest of the cast is an assortment of char-
acters, each unique in their on way, who may
double as embassy protesters carrying signs
and throwing bombs. "Don't Drink the Water"
is being directed by Art Harriman in his direc-
torial d6but at HLT.


Mosaic stepping stone

Special to the News-Sun

design.

fast one

It's probably explainable
in some quantum physics or
linear number theory, but it
sure threw me for a loop.
I guess it's not so much a
matter of numbers lying, but
I came across a statistic as I
was putting together the
league standings on page 2
that took me a while to fig-
ure out.
It just didn't seem logical
in any sense.
Go look at the NBA
Preseason standings specif-
ically the Southeast Division.
You'll think maybe I made
a mistake in the order of the
teams.
Believe me, I had to do
some hard figuring and it
took me some time to justify
it.
After all, you'd see that
Miami, a team that hadn't
won a game yet, was ahead
of Washington, a team with
one win thus far in the pre-
season.
Now, the Wizards have
played a few more games,
and they have five losses as
compared to the Heat's three.
But still, how can a team
with a zero winning percent-
age be ahead of a team that
has one, even if it is a paltry
.167?

stumbling block that got my

Red Devils





win big


Corral the Cowboys in

trouncing at LaBelle


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
LABELLE The Avon
Park Red Devils showed
they were the better team
Friday night at Cowboy
Stadium when they walked
away with a long-overdue
40-0 win against LaBelle.
"Finally," exclaimed sen-
ior Red Devil running back
Virgil Cooper. "This
was a big boost to our
confidence. It is was a
good win, and I final- 4
ly got a touchdown La
without a flag to bring
it back."
Cooper has had
almost every one of
his touchdowns in the last
two years called back. And
he even had his first touch-
down on Friday night
spoiled with a yellow flag on
the field.
Cooper would end the
evening with 74 yards rush-
ing and two touchdowns.
"We are getting better
every week," said Cooper's
teammate and starting quar-
terback Albert Moses. "We
used the running game
tonight and showed every-
one we could move the ball,
and the confidence was there
so coach allowed us to go to
the air some."
Go to the air indeed.
Moses would cover 161
yards in the air and connect
for two touchdowns with his
favorite connection, tight
end Alonzo Robertson.
Robertson returned to
active duty last week against
Braden River after being on


the injured-reserve list since
the start of the season.
"Albert and Alonzo make
a good pair," said Avon Park
head coach Andy Bonjokian.
"He (Robertson) would have
made a big difference to our
offense if we had him earlier
in the season."
Moses also pounded out
some yards on the ground,
n Park rushing for 66 total
and one touchdown.
ID Altogether, the
to Red Devil offense
Belle pounded out a
respectable 333 yards
O both in the air and on
the ground.
Defensively, the
Red Devils allowed the
Cowboys just 58 total yards
in the first two quarters,
forcing LaBelle to go to the
air after the half.
Cleveland Nobles showed
his prowess on defense, sack-
ing Cowboy quarterback
Marcus Simmons three times
for losses totaling 13 yards.
And Cooper helped out on
defense as well, knocking
down four passes at key
downs.
"Their 10-and-out pass to
the sideline gave us 'some
trouble the second half,"
said Bonjokian. "That spe-
cific pass is a weakness in
our 4-3 defense, and the cov-
erage has to vary depending
on their line-up. I have to
give it to their coach, he saw
the weakness, and adjusted
after the half to exploit it."
The Cowboys picked-up
70 yards with their short

Virgil Cooper goes headlong across the goal line Friday night at LaBelle. This score was
called back on a holding penalty, but it was of little matter as Avon Park stampeded over the
Cowboys, 40-0. Below: Tight end Alonzo Robertson breaks free from a would-be tackler for a
big gain. Robertson would account for two Red Devil touchdowns Friday night in his second
game back from injury.


'Finally. This

was a big boost to

our confidence.'

VIRGIL COOPER
Red Devil senior
passing attack in the final 24
minutes of the game.
"Everything kind of
clicked, the kids played hard.
We got the blocks, we got the
breaks, it was just one of those
things. It was a big win," said
Bonjokian. "I am really proud
of these kids tonight. They
executed and played their
assignments. We are getting
better every week, and this is
what can happen when we
work as a team."
Avon Park moves forward
next Friday night to face
Bartow on Red Devil
Homecoming weekend.
"We will have a good bus
ride home and some fun this
weekend, but this is all over
come Monday. We have to
show we have the staying
power now, and a new sea-
son starts for us at practice
come Monday," concluded
Bonjokian.

From the time Augustine
began his football career
playing Pop Warner football
in Lake Placid, people have
been telling him that he was
too small and didn't have
enough talent.
Augustine used that nega-
tive reinforcement and turned
it into fuel to perform.
During his playing time at
Lake Placid, Augustine was a
standout at running back,
linebacker, 'and played an
occasional tight end.
In his three years with the
Varsity squad he played a
major role in the winning of
their second-ever district title
in 1998, along with the dis-
trict runner-up in 1999.
A big reason for the success
of the '98 and '99 squads was
team chemistry.
"We were like a family. We
were like brothers rather than
teammates. We went out every
game and played for each
other and not ourselves. We
wanted to play hard and win
for each other and our coach-
es," commented Augustine.
"One of my best memories
was playing Immokalee. We
busted our butts all night long
and they were bigger than us,
but we played tough all night
long. Several of their coaches
came to me and commented on
how hard I played and that the
effort I gave would get me
somewhere."
During high school
Augustine's biggest goal was
to play college football at the


'We were like a

family. We were

like brothers

rather than

teammates.'

ZEP AUGUSTINE

University of Florida.
Graduating from Lake
Placid, Augustine was not
recruited and was either
forced to give up the sport he
loved or try and walk onto the
Gator squad.
Augustine did just that but
he didn't do it on his first try.
"I tried out in the winter and
didn't make it, but I refused to
quit and made the team in the
summer," said Augustine.
The Green Dragon star beat
out 200 other possible walk-
ons to be on the scout team
which runs the opposing
teams offense and defense.
By the end of 2001
Augustine had made the ros-
ter and was a part of the
Orange and Blue.
While with the Gators,
Augustine was a head hunter
on special teams and was a
backup defensive back.
"I worked hard and refused
to quit. All the work paid off
in the long run," he said.
Augustine's hard work did
pay off. In the fall of 2003
Augustine was rewarded by
then head coach Ron Zook
with a scholarship on the team.
While on the team Augustine
earned several accolades such
as Most Improved Walk-On,
the John Ebnor Award and in
2003-2004 he was on the SEC

at the University of Florida, where he beat out more than
200 prospects as a walk-on to become a Gator.


All-Academic Honor Roll.
After graduating from col-
lege with a Bachelor's Degree
in Exercise Science,
Augustine made it on the Ft.
Myers Fire Cats Arena
Football league but was cut
due to injury.
Since then, Augustine
coached in Lake Placid under
previous coaches Shaw
Maddox and Tim Grant.


Currently Augustine is
interning with the strength
and conditioning program at
the University of Florida
where he works with the
Football, Track, and Baseball
teams.
In the winter term of 2009
Augustine will be starting his
Master's Degree program
with an emphasis on Human
Resources.


Tri-meet
By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID With
districts fast approaching,
some more head-to-head
competition between the
three county schools pushed
the swimmers to new levels
Thursday as Avon Park and
Sebring joined Lake Placid
in the Green Dragon pool.
The Lake Placid boys
came out on top of the tri-
meet with 142 points over-
all while the Sebring Lady
Streaks swam to a 17-point
victory over the Lady
Dragons, 144-127.
The strength of the
Sebring relay teams helped
give the girls the edge as
they won the 200 Medley,
200 Free and 400 Free.
Individually, the Lady
Blue Streaks saw four win-
ners with Samantha Spiegel
(6:29.05) cruising to a win
in the 500 Free, Katelyn
Bryan (1:15.89) edging out
Lake Placid's Shannon
Cummings (1:18.60) in the
100 Backstroke and Kristi
Livingston (28.26) tapping


tune-up
in just before Lady Dragon
*Rachel Cope (29.55) in the
50 Free.
But the closest race had
two Sebring ladies battling
it out in the 100
Breaststroke as Paige Giller
and Megan Wolfe matched
each other stroke for stroke
until a last-second surge
saw Giller pull out the win
with a time of 1:15.84, a
mere .19 seconds ahead of
Wolfe's 1:16.03.
Tammi Beach lead the
way for the Lake Placid
ladies with two wins.
She easily paced the field
in the 200 Free and pulled a
sub-one-minute time in the
100 Free, coming in at a
blistering 59.69 a sure
sign that the swimmers are
peaking at a good time.
Marbelly Creel was
another double winner for
the Dragons, winning the
200 Individual Medley in
2:45.39 and the, 100
Butterfly in 1:15.17.
Cummings took the girls

segment of the 200 Medley Relay Thursday at the tri-
meet in Lake Placid. The Sebring girls came out on top
while the Lake Placid boys were victorious in both team's
second-to-last tune-up before districts get underway.

Quick times bode well for Districts


Continued from ID
diving competition with a
combined score of 154.05,
finishing just ahead of Avon
Park's Jamie Wirries 151.35
and Sebring's Mekenzie
Hargaden's 149.05.
Red Devil John Chittum
was the boys diving leader.
compiling an overall score of
193.35 with Lake Placid tak-
ing the next two slots with
Mark Greenauer's 155.25 and
Edwin Velazquez's 146.10.
The Sebring boys took the
first two relay events, the 200
Medley and 200 Free, but the
Lake Placid boys came out


ahead in the 400 Free.
The Dragon trio of Kevin
Smit, Dylan Weber-Callahan
and Robert Greene were their
usual solid selves individual-
ly.
Smit won the 200 IM
(2:34.78) and 100 Butterfly
(1:05.57) while Weber-
Callahan took the 200 Free
(2:18.22) and 100 Back
(1:10.26) and Greene set the
pace in the 50 Free (24.45).
Michael Trujillo rounded
out the Dragon wins with a
close race in the 100
Breaststroke, beating team-
mate Kevin Nguyen by little


more than half-a-second,
1:14.89-1:15.40.
Joshua Heflin got a win for
the Blue Streaks in the 100
Free (55.66) and Mathew
Vickers won for Sebring in
the 500 Free (5:43.20).
Lake Placid will have one
more tune-up with Hardee on
Thursday, Oct. 23, before
heading to their district meet
Oct. 29 at Winter Haven.
Sebring follows a similar
schedule with a meet at
Winter Haven Thursday
before heading to their district
meet Tuesday, Oct. 28 at Lake
Region.


Continued from 1D
head spinning, was in figur-
ing out the 'Games Behind'
numbers.
Orlando leads the division
with a 2-1 record, followed
by Atlanta at 3-2.
Well, they're actually, sort
of, tied, though their winning
percentages are off but
that's explained by the differ-
ence in games played.
Next up are the aforemen-
tioned Heat at 0-3.
Now, they have two less


wins than the Magic and two
more losses.
Add the difference in wins
to the difference in losses
and then divide by two and
you have the number of
games behind they are.
In Miami's case, that puts
them two games behind.
Washington, however, has
one less win but four more
losses.
One plus four is five, by
my latest calculation, and
have of five is two-and-a-


half.
So there you have it, the
numbers tell us that a team
with one win is farther
behind than a team that has-
n't won a game yet.
As I said, the numbers
don't seem to be lying,
they're just messing around
with us.

That s right Guy Maxcy is 0 for 4 vmn it cares to lodring yu in the eye
and explaining why he serves yur xcte.

Cne Maxcy saprter missed the paint entirely Uhmn he stated: if yi wart
to talk to Mr. Maxcy thi call him. I was astandad at his arrcgarre and
iruflted t-at an elected f ficial wild he so disrue-etful cf the citi2sS cf
this Cbuty .Why won t ny cppa-rt stand before the people for evalua -
tial? A few paints to crrsihr:

1. Mr. Mamyhs stated for the better part cf ayear that, ifreeleted,
he has anr ide th e lad ts to gt tte allolling en. Sarea
needs to ranird him that he is the in~oiret and he cdesn t rEd to
wait for an elctin to earn his pyd-rck. The Cunty needs him
working hard NOW. Rr a yar he s ctre nothiru but waste tine
carpaigning an the taxpayer s dcine. If ny rcpra-t had an ida to
better sane the paple, why w ld he wait a year until reflected to
inplerErt it? Shameless padrirg!

2. Mr. Maxcy tas stated nany tines that he should have done more
cver the last few years to loer pretty ta>se. Ie has also said
many tines he should have done nore to help cur low in-core sen-
ides. I agree whlehartedly that ha should have dme nore. Arrn t
ve tired cf politicians should have cdne mrre? W e reed lars
who wil cb nore.

3 After 16 years in cffk a my opponent s trst difficult dchBalle
sruild be narraing cbtn the list of his nust significant aonm-
pli~dtats over the last faur terns. After nearly a er, I have y to
har any ash list. Mr. ay has so little to stard n ~that e is nrn-
nin n the basis cf rare recgnxticn aloe.

4. My cpprrat has stated that tihse are cdallengi tines and we need
to cut the b.drlgt, yt in the rext breath he says we rasd to build a
mass tranqsptatin sysen and a big cne-stcp-shp saior cater.
Which is it? EDD ve cut spending or cb e sperd like drunken

ere is my pledge to ye :

I will work to loier property tas. W e all kn]w the prp=aety tax sys -

will awrk with cur State -p recatative on a plan to red.xe ptqerty

I will work to reduce governent spending. here is sinply rn reason

agreeerts with Catral and South Arerica.

I will work to inplerrnt a two-term limit for County

W e reed a constant rotation cf rns blod ad fresh ias to kEp gcr-
