3 charged

with eating

pot in back

of police car

Speeding violation
sparks bizarre arrests
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christv@newssuni.comn
AVON PARK Three men were arrest-
ed early Wednesday for tampering with
evidence after a routine traffic stop ended
with them accused of eating marijuana
while in the back of a police car.
The incident started when Christopher
Bigelow, 19, of Avon Park, was pulled
over for allegedly driving 61 mph in a 45
mph zone.
While officer James
PParker of the Avon Park
Police Department was
performing a field sobriety
test. Nelson J. Adams, 22,
of Zolfo Springs, arrived in
the passenger seat of a
Parsons truck.
Meanwh Bigelow told Parker he
all three fiel had called the occupants to
remove his vehicle after
the stop.
"(The driver) and Adams
were advised several times
that if they did not want to
wait at the scene, they were
Bigelow free to leave at their own
will," Parker wrote in the
prov d a p report.
The two refused to leave
and waited on scene.
Adams was visibly
intoxicated, Parker said,
and interfered with the
traffic stop after being
Adams asked several times to
return to the truck.
Meanwhile, Bigelow reportedly failed
all three field sobriety tests and was arrest-
ed and put in the back of Parker's police
car.
When Adams returned to the truck, offi-
cers allegedly saw him drop a small sand-
wich bag.
Parker asked a K-9 officer on scene to
conduct a free air sniff of'the exterior of
the vehicle, and the dog, Hex, reportedly
provided a positive alert.

Guardian Ad Litem toy drive starts early


Toys will go to abused, neglected
children for Christmas


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING After a successful
toy drive last year, the Guardian Ad
Litem program is at it again.
Last year's drive came up a little
short, so this year they are starting
early and want to collect enough
toys for the nearly 300 children they
serve.
"A lot of these children don't
have anything, so we try to give
them a toy," said Juanita Masters,
staff advocate for the program and
organizer of the toy drive. "We
think somebody can buy four $10
gifts and that would not be a hard-
ship on them."
The Guardian Ad Litem program
serves as the voice for children who
have been removed from their fami-
lies due to abuse, neglect and aban-
donment.
Most children they serve do not
have anything to open on Christmas


morning without help
from the program.
Boxes are out across
the county for
Christmas dona-
tions, and the col-
lection will con-
tinue until Dec.
12. The presents are
then wrapped and
delivered personally
to children by Dec. )


"(The children) are
overwhelmed ... care-
givers say they are
very excited to have t\c .ind
we also accept donations I I',d."-
Masters said. "Some families would
rather us make them a food basket
than (receive) toys."
The toys can consist of dolls.
board games, balls, trucks, crayons
and coloring books, action figures or
art sets, although most any toys are


accepted with the exception of toy
guns and knives due to some violent
family situations.
One toy worth $10 to $15 can

runner-up.
The final festivities for this
year began at 3 p.m. with the
prior Idol performers taking
the stage.
During the first round, con-
testants sang patriotic songs
to honor Veterans Day.
Five finalists were then
chosen and were given a
chance to sing a song of their
choice. Emcee Don Elwell
warned contestants that
Saturday's show is the perfect
time to show off everything
they've learned up to now.
"In this.show; every point
is so important," said Elwell.
"Losing two points could eas-
ily cost somebody up to
$1,000 or more."

Local Republicans


disappointed, but

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
clhristopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Generally
speaking, Highlands County
Republicans are both philo-
sophical and ready to move
on.
"I think Highlands County
did well this election," County
Republican Chairwoman
Justine Devlin said
Wednesday. "We were on a
mission and we accomplished
it, except for Susan," she said
with a light laugh,
adding that Susan 'We'

out for McCain,"
she said. "'Otn of 28,000 plus
registered Republican voters
i&the county we turned dut
25,000. We handed out 4,000
signs, 4,000 bumper stickers,
and put up three large bill-
boards.
"People kept coming in to
donate money and we couldn't
keep up with the demand (for
campaign and supporting
material). We went three times
to Ocala to get more supplies.
I've never seen such a turnout.
I was honored to be a part of
this campaign."
While Devlin remained up-
beat and optimistic, Marvin
Kahn, who was the chairman
of the local McCain/Palin
election campaign, had a more

was tired and low key.
"We certainly are disap-

the majority of the state, and
the population, have chosen

disappointed people didn't
give it a little more thought.

party affiliation.
"A hiimber of Democrats -

they want to switch," he said.

who are Republican in philos-

TODAY'S LETTERS


Remember the veterans
Editor:
In 1924, the Veterans of Foreign
Wars registered the name Buddy
Poppy with the U.S. Patent Office. It
represents the blood shed by America
military service members and reminds
us of their sacrifices. The Buddy
Poppy is assembled by disabled and
needy veterans in VA hospitals.
Proceeds from Buddy Poppy Drives
are used for aid, relief and comfort of
needy veterans and members of the
Armed Forces and their dependents.
Poem written in 1915 by John
McCrae
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row.
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the gates below.
We are Dead, Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset
glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we
lie
In Flanders Fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies
grow
In Flanders fields.
Please support the organization
who show their support by promoting
the Poppy Blood Drive.
Jeanette Billings, Ladies Auxiliary
Post 4300

Thanks to Highlands
County's best
Editor:
On Nov. 11, we will be celebrating
Veterans' Day. A day we honor our
men and women who served both in
the past and the present. I'm grateful


as a combat soldier that people recog-
nize the effort we all did and continue
doing today. Thanks for your prayers.
But, I would also like to take a
moment to thank our men and women
in uniform serving in Highlands
County: police, sheriff, firefighters,
National Guards, EMT, state troopers
and many others. I read about one of
our county's finest police officers,
Adam Willis, who confronted a defi-
ant drunk with intentions of hurting
this officer in order to get away but
had little success (Great response by
both police and sheriff officers who
arrived at the scene immediately for
back-up).
Many times the newspapers report
about how our county's best officers,
with their eagle eyes, sharp minds and
years of experience, make routine or
random traffic stops and unquestion-
ably apprehend unwanted suspects
who are just passing through or local
citizens who are breaking the law or
disturbing the peace. Many officers
who may not go home like you and I
do every day. I, like many others, can
surely sleep better knowing our coun-
ty's finest are on duty 24/7 and can be
depended on, just like when our
nation slept all night, the military was
at their post guarding our nation's
freedom from all enemies, foreign or
domestic.
Let us also keep them in our
prayers.

Arc clients feel big losses
* Editor's note: Although only a
few of them appear here, scores of
letters were received from Ridge Area
Arc clients.

Editor:
In 2007, the Florida Legislature


amended section 393.0661, Florida
Statues, to implement a four-tiered
waiver system to serve clients with
developmental disabilities in the DD
and Family and Supported Living
Waivers.
Here are some letters written by, or
written for, individuals who will soon
lose some of the services they cur-
rently receive from Ridge Area Arc
and other providers. The individuals
tell in their own words how this will
impact them.
This is a flawed system. Our hope
is that once the legislators hear from
individuals and/or their family mem-
bers of the impact of the tiers that
they will help fix this system. Ridge
Area Arc wants to work together with
the legislators to come up with other
solutions. We would also like for leg-
islators to consider funneling gam-
bling revenues to services for persons
with developmental disabilities.
Rhonda Beckman
Sebring

The writer is executive director at Ridge
Area Arc.

Editor:
I am a 24 year-old female. I am
very unhappy with what is being
done with the cutbacks for the dis-
abled (specially challenged). I don't
enjoy sitting around doing nothing.
That is one of the reasons I enjoy
being able to go to Ridge Area Arc
during the week. 1 have many friends
and have learned many skills includ-
ing different job skills that will help
me in a job. I would greatly miss the
socialization and friendships that I
have. Also, I love being able to make
a little money. If cuts are made, there
goes my check. I feel like I am being
put aside because of my "special
needs."

jobs for our income. The money from
our checks we use for things we need
and for "fun" money. For those of us
who are working at Ridge Area Arc
in our area, we barely have money
now on our paychecks with working
five days. Some of us work four
days.
Even though we may be different
physically, mentally, or both, we
should not be punished for our dis-
ability. We are also equal even
though we are specially challenged as
anyone else. We should be able to
work and learn the job skills to get
the job and to further our learning.

Laura's Look
Laura Ware

Moving

forward after

the vote

My plan for this column
was to be my rather warped
look at the campaign season
and the election. I was also
going to regale my readers
with my own humble opinions
about what went right and
went wrong with John
McCain and Barack Obama's
respective quests for the
White House.
I figured I could toss off
this column even if John
McCain, the man I voted for,
didn't win. I could even act
cheerful and funny. I mean, I
write a lot of fiction, how
hard could this be?
So why was I sitting in
front of my laptop on
Wednesday night glaring at a
mostly empty page while my
brain came to a complete
halt?
It's not sour grapes, honest-
ly. To be honest, I felt I didn't
have any good choices this
particular election cycle. The
last time I felt this way was in
1992, when my choices were
the present President's dad,
Bill Clinton, and Ross Perot.
My choice didn't win that
year, either. But I didn't have
a column to talk about it then.
The thing that kept me
from getting the column done
last night wasn't how it turned
out, though I was disappoint-
ed. It was the reaction of
many people around me, who
were also disappointed.
The difference was that
while my feelings could get at
least partial healing with
sleep, a fun game and choco-
late, these people breezed past
disappointment and flirted
with hysteria.
I've heard people wish bad
things to happen to President-
elect Obama, This is wrong. If
you:are-,saying things like -
this, stop rightnow. It doesn't
solve anything and says a lot
more about you than the next
President. And what is says
isn't pretty.
There have been dire pre-
dictions about how the coun-
try will perish under a
President Obama. Some have
said they won't even call him
President. Didn't a few of us
get riled when people said
that about President Bush?
So, with these crazy peo-
ple's voices echoing in my
head, I sat in front of my lap-
pie, not sure what I could say
to them. "Get a grip" came to
mind but it's kind of short.
My answer came in the
form of my 21-year-old son,
John. We were chatting last
night and I shared my frustra-
tions with him. He told me
he'd had to talk to a friend of
his about the whole thing and
shared with me what he said.
His answer was so mature,
so profound, and so RIGHT I
got his permission to put it in
my column. Here it is, just
slightly edited for grammar
and spelling:
"In the end, it is going to
be OK. This is a real opportu-
nity for the Republican party
to solve their identity crisis
and get back to their roots. If
Obama turns out to be a horri-
ble president, then we'll have
a turnover in Congress in two
years (provided the
Republicans remember who
they are) ... and he'll be gone
in four. This has the potential
to pave the way for an incred-
ible figure to replace him.
"If Obama is not the worst
fears of some, he will be a
great president who will leave
a terrific mark on history. The
country will be better for it,
and those of us who are wor-
ried can man up and say we


were wrong. A preferable
alternative."
So calm down, my fellow
Americans. It's not the end of
the world. Not as long as we
have our own determination
to make sure that our coun-
try's best interests are main-
tained and we have wise 21-
year-olds to help us.

Michaels in the near future.
We continue learning daily
and it is through Ridge Area
Arc and their staff we have
these skills. To cut funding
and take certain things away
from us is not right. It is
strongly against our rights.
We know "our" rights.
Janet May and
Lorraine Steeves

I make money at Arc. I do
tubing for sprinklers and do
janitorial work. I wash vans
and do lawn crew sometimes.
If they cut my funding, I
can't pay bills. I won't be
able to go to the day program
and make money. This makes
me feel bad. I want to see my
friends at Arc every day. My
friends make me happy.
Don't cut my money. I need
my money to live.

Editor's note: The fol-
lowing letters deal with polit-
ical issues and candidates
and were received prior to
the election. It is the News-
Sun's policy to not print such
letters during the two weeks
prior to an election.

Not surprised by
Powell's endorsement
Editor:
Why am I not surprised by
Colin Powell's endorsement
of B.H. Obama for president?
He used, as part of his rea-
son, that Sarah Palin was not
experienced enough to be
president. I ask you Colin
Powell, who has the most
experience governing a state
and making decisions affect-
ing several thousand people?
B.H. Obama or Sarah Palin.
Come on C. Powell, this is a
no-brainer and you know it.
Making Sarah Palin a part of
your reasoning (excuses) for
endorsing B.H. Obama
speaks very poorly of you.
Having read C. Powell's
biography "My American
Journal" after the first print
in 1995, I came away with
the feeling that C. Powell is a
racist. I would suggest all
who disagree with me read
his biography which is avail-
able at the Avon Park library
and make their own decision.
Several of the talking
heads on TV and radio sug-
gested Colin was jealous and
disappointed that Bush did
not give him any attention or
another position in his cabi-
net after Colin resigned as
Secretary of State. True or
not, that was being said.
No mention in the elite
media of McCain having four
secretaries of state who have
endorsed John for president.
It is common knowledge
that the next President of the
United States will possibly
appoint three new Supreme
Court Justices and many
positions in the lower Federal
Courts. Frankly, this scares
me.
Also B.H. Obama is for
abortion on demand in all of
the nine months of gestation
and will approve killing an
aborted baby who survives
the abortion procedure.
Time will tell which direc-
tion this great country will
go. We may be forced to say
"It used to be a great coun-
try."
I wrote this letter prior to
Nov. 4 and believed the polls,
which indicated B.H. Obama
would be elected president. I
can only say "Please God,
protect this country which
you have endowed with your
love and caring spirit and
sacrificed your son, Jesus
Christ." What greater sacri-
fice could be made?

Violation of
democratic form of
government
Editor:
Those that the American
people have elected or
appointed for a two- or four-
year term of office have vio-
lated their oaths of office and
their contract with the
American people.
When the servants know


what's best for the master it's
time to discharge the servant.
Our democratic form of gov-
ernment has been violated for
many years by our form of
electoral process "i.e.," more
than one term of office, by
allowing this, it allows for a
corrupt system, a system of
government like we have at
this time in history.
We have the right to
impeach or discharge the ser-
vant in a democratic govern-
ment for breaking their oaths
of office, or if you will, their
contracts.
Since we are only a month
away from extending or end-
ing their contracts we should
consider ending their con-
tracts instead of impeach-
ment.
Term limits "insure," a
"true" Democratic form of
government. The American
people should never again
give more than one term to
anyone regardless of their
expertise.
Both the Democratic and
Republican parties and the
Bush administration have
violated the democratic form
of government. "You the peo-
ple" are the democratic form
of government through the
right of "free elections," to
control your destiny.
Express your rights and
discharge "all" incumbents
servants to insure we remain
a free government. I would
remind you that the Congress
we have today is hell-bent on
turning our nation over to
global powers.
Vote your rights in
November.

Sebring

Carter, Bush at
different ends of
spectrum
Editor:
I have heard the term Tax
and Spend used so derogato-
rily about the Democrats, by
many Republicans in their
campaign spiels, that I decid-
ed to find out the validity of
the usage. That meant a little
research into the Federal
budget about income, spend-
ing and related borrowing.
After a little digging I
wondered, maybe the wrong
party was labeled taxers and
spenders. Take a look at the
results of the following infor-
mation. What do you think?
I quickly found out that I
could not limit the scope of
this examination to the pres-
ent situation, so I went back
to 1977, it includes four pres-
idents before the current
incumbent (G.W. Bush).
These four presidents are
equally divided, two from
each party with one four-year
termer and one eight-year ter-
mer. Dollars are in billions
and are rounded to the near-
est billion.

Observations: Rankings of
Presidents by fiscal group-
ings based on year average.
Fiscal Grouping Term Years
1. Income; 2. Spending; 3.
Deficit; 4. Na. Debt increase.
Carter 1977-80, $434,


$491 $57 and $228.
Reagan 1981-88, $714,
$753, $167 and $1,336.
Bush -1989-92, $1,039,
$1,275, $233 and $1,864.
Clinton 1993-00, $1,540,
$1,580, $40 and $320.
Bush a 2001-04, $1,876,
$2,081, $205, $820.
Bush b 2005-08, $2,415,
$2,732, $283 and $1,132.
Conclusions: Based prima-
rily on the above yearly fac-
tors, Carter is by far the low-
est taxer and spender and the
greatest is Bush, G.W. in his
second term, as well as his
first term.
The reader should remem-
ber that the presidential year
is the calendar year, but the
fiscal year is from October to
September. So, for the first
and last year of their term, a
president will lose or gain a
difference of three months on
financial reporting. The read-
er should also remember that
any funds cited are for their
current value as originally
reported. That means the
funds of past years do not
reflect the costs of inflation
or the changes in the world
value of the dollar.

3 jailed for trying to

eat evidence in cop car


Continued from page 1A
When officers
approached the vehicle,
they allegedly noticed
Jonathan Parsons, 22,
Sebring, lying in the rear
compartment of the truck
with a large amount of
green leafy substance on his
white T-shirt.
The substance field tested
positive for marijuana and
Parsons was arrested and
put in Parker's police car
with Bigelow.
At some point, Adams
was also taken into custody
and placed into Parker's
car, but the report did not
indicate when.
Officers found trace
amounts of marijuana in at
least three places in the
truck during the search,
Parker said, but during that
time they noticed a large
amount of movement com-
ing from Parker's car, so the
officers went to it and
opened the door.
The police vehicle
allegedly smelled strongly
of marijuana as did the
mouths of the three suspects
inside.
When the three men were
removed from the vehicle,
"all three had cannabis on
their shirts, faces and
mouths," Parker wrote in
the report.
The men and car were
cleaned up and the suspects
were transported to the jail.
After Parker left, another
officer found a bag of sus-


pected marijuana that was
apparently kicked under
Parker's police car during
one of the arrests, reports
said.
The plant material
weighed 18 grams and a
field test returned positive
results for marijuana.
Parker's vehicle is one of
the many APPD police
vehicles equipped with in-
car video.
When he returned to the
police department, Parker
watched the video.
"On tape, Parsons
advised several times that
he had a bag of ;reefer; in
his pants," Parker said.
"Parsons, with the help of
the others, can be heard eat-
ing the cannabis and
attempting to conceal it
(inside a body cavity other
than the mouth)."
Adams and Parsons were
charged with tampering
with evidence, possession
of marijuana less than 20
grams, and possession of
narcotic equipment.
They were released on
$2,000 bond apiece.
Bigelow was still in cus-
tody Friday, held on $4,000
bond for tampering with
evidence, possession of
marijuana less than 20
grams and driving under the
influence.
The News-Sun has
requested a copy of the in-
car video. It will be posted
on newssun.com if and
when it is released by the
APPD.

Masters said.
To donate visit one of the
locations listed. Staff are
also willing to pick up toys
from donors.
Toys can also be dropped
off at the Guardian Ad
Litem offices, 436 Palmetto
Avenue in Sebring, behind
the Sheriffs Office.
Highlands County Case
Coordinator Lisa Falcon
said the Guardian Ad Litem
program is always looking
for volunteers.
A volunteers can be "just
a normal person that cares
about kids in our communi-
ty," she said.
The only requirements
are to be more than 19 years
old with no felony record,
and taking a training ses-


sion.
The next session is set for
after January, but Falcon
said those interested can
call the office and she "can
take them through the whole
process."
Volunteers with the pro-
gram currently range from
the age of 24 to 75, and
cover all races and genders.
Minority men are highly
desired, she said, and so are
bilingual volunteers.
The time commitment
ranges from only two hours
a month to two hours a week
for intense cases.
Contact the local
Highlands County Guardian
Ad Litem program at 402-
6969 for information on the
toy drive, to arrange a toy
pickup, or for information
on how to become a volun-
teer.

would remain slaves."
Both Kahn and Devlin pre-
ferred to look ahead.
"We're not spending time
feeling sorry for ourselves,"
Kahn said. "We're preparing
to greet new people into our
party."
Devlin put the future into
perspective. "We live on the
same planet and need to get
along (with the Democrats).
We really have to get on and
get along.


"I wish (Obama) well,
because he is my president
too. Of course, we'll keep his
feet to the fire when we have
to."
Devlin added that didn't
mean she and Highlands
County Republicans wouldn't
keep working for Republican
causes, or start even now to
prepare for the next election
cycle.
"The secret to success is
when it is not an election to
keep (the party membership)
growing so we have the people
online and trained when the
time comes and we are ready
to go," she said.

8-year-old

charged

with killing

dad, friend

Associated Press
ST. JOHNS, Ariz. -
Police in this small east-
ern Arizona community
are looking into the possi-
bility that an 8-year-old
boy who is charged with
killing his father and
another man with a rifle
had been abused, the
police chief said Saturday.
The boy, who faces two
counts of premeditated
murder, did not act on the
spur of the moment,
Police Chief Roy Melnick
said.
"I'm not accusing any-
body of anything at this
point," he said Saturday.
"But we're certainly
going to look at the abuse
part of this. He's 8 years
old. He just doesn't
decide one day that he's
going to shoot his father
and shoot his father's
friend for no reason.
Something led up to this."
On Friday, a judge
determined there was
probable cause to show
that the boy fatally shot
his father, Vincent
Romero, 29, and Timothy
Romans, 39,' of San
Carlos, with a .22-caliber
rifle.
Under Arizona law,
charges can be filed
against anyone 8 or older.
The judge ordered a psy-
chological evaluation.

Borrowing from
retirement
accounts a
costly mistake
The current
housing crisis
and other
economic
woes are tak-
ing their toll
on people's
wallets.
Caught
between esca- Personal
lasting mort- rson

ments and Jason
rising fuel Alderman
and food
costs, manyfolks are having dif-
ficulty paying their bills. Not so
long ago, some people probably
would've just taken out a home
equity loan, but with property
values plummeting, their equity
may already be exhausted not
to mention, those loans are now
harder to get.
Which leads me to cite a dis-
turbing behavior that's on the
rise: Tapping long-term retire-
ment savings accounts to pay
short-term bills..
Loans and withdrawals from
401(k) plans, IRAs and other
tax-sheltered plans are allowed
in many cases but the financial
consequences can be extremely
costly, because of taxes, penal-
ties and lost investment income.
Here are a few cautions to
consider before raiding your nest
egg:
401(k) loans. Many
employer-sponsored 401(k)
retirement plans let participants
borrow from their account to
buy a home, pay for education
or medical expenses or for cer-
tain other reasons. Usually you
must pay back the loan within

Atlanticblue adds 2 board members


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE WALES J.D. Alexander, presi-
dent/CEO of Atlanticblue Group Inc., a real
estate management, acquisition, land develop-
ment and agricultural organization, is pleased
to announce that Mike J. Lafitte and J. Andrew
Kerner have both joined Atlanticblue's Board
of Directors.
Lafitte is the president of institutional and
corporate services for CB Richard Ellis Inc. in
Dallas, Texas.
Prior to joining CB Richard Ellis, Lafitte
served as president of global services for the
Trammell Crow Company and was a member of
the firm's executive and operating committees.
Currently, he's a board member of the Baylor
Healthcare Foundation, Highland Park
Education Foundation and the Realtors
Commercial Alliance.
In addition, Lafitte is a licensed real estate
broker and a member of the Park Cities Baptist
Church in Dallas.


Kerner serves as a director of
Affordable Housing Partners
(AHP), a non-profit organiza-
tion focused on acquiring land
for affordable housing develop-
ment in Texas.
Prior to joining AHP, Kerner
Lafitte held executive management
positions with Centex Homes
and was CFO with the viaLink Company and
Cameron Ashley Building Products Inc.
He serves on the Chancellor's Council
Executive Committee for the University of
Texas System and has served on the Executive
Council of the McCombs School of Business
Real Estate Finance and Investment Center.
"We are very excited to have Mike and
Andrew join Atlanticblue's Board of
Directors," said Alexander.
"They both offer distinctive individual tal-
ents and years of experience that will be an
essential component of the board."


Don't borrow from retirement funds


Continued from page 9A
five years (sometimes the
timeframe is longer for home
purchases).
However, if you miss pay-
ments or leave your job, you
must pay off the loan immedi-
ately (usually within 30 to 90
days) or you'll owe income
tax on the remainder as well
as a 10 percent early distribu-
tion penalty if you're under
59 1/2. That 10 percent penal-
ty could quickly erase any
investment gains your account
might have earned.
Another potential downside
to 401(k) loans: Because you
would now have a loan pay-
ment, you might be tempted
to reduce your monthly con-
tribution amount, thereby
reducing your potential
long-term account balance
and earnings.
401(k) plan and IRA
withdrawals. Some 401(k)
plans also allow hardship
withdrawals to pay for certain
medical or higher education
expenses, funerals, buying or
repairing your home or to pre-
vent eviction or foreclosure.


You'll owe income tax on the
withdrawal and often the 10
percent penalty as well.
Unlike employer plans, tra-
ditional IRAs let you with-
draw from your account at
any time for any reason.
However, you will be subject
to income tax on the with-
drawal and usually the 10
percent penalty as well.
With Roth IRAs, you can
withdraw the money you've
contributed at any time, since
it's already been taxed.
However, if you withdraw the
interest earnings before 59
1/2, you'll face that 10 per-
cent penalty.
Further tax implica-
tions. Note that with 401(k)
and traditional IRA with-
drawals, the money is added
to your taxable income for the
year, which could bump you
into a higher tax bracket or
even jeopardize certain tax
credits, deductions and
exemptions that are tied to
your adjusted gross income.
All told, you could end up
paying half or more of your
withdrawal in taxes and


penalties.
Compound earnings.
Finally, if you borrow or
withdraw your retirement sav-
ings, you'll lose out on the
power of compounding,
where interest earned on your
savings is reinvested and in
turn generates more earnings.
You'll lose out on any gains
those funds would have
earned for you, which over a
couple of decades could add
up to tens or hundreds of
thousands of dollars in lost
income.
Bottom line: Think
long and hard before tapping
your retirement savings for
anything other than retirement
itself. If that's your only
recourse, be sure to consult a
financial professional about
the tax implications; if you
don't know one, www.planner
search.org is a good place to
start your search.

monds on both occasions. My
eyes could hardly take it in.
No wonder Isaiah 40: 22b,
NKJV, proclaims, "Who
stretches out the heavens like
a curtain..." and then in verse
26, "Lift up your eyes on
high, and see who has created
these things, Who brings out
their host by number; He calls
them all by name."
Just as we were basking in
the drapery of stars and in
wonder and praise of God, a
shooting star shot across the
sky as if to punctuate our
praise.
We can barely comprehend
what we can see, let alone the
vastness of the universe that
we cannot see. Yet he has
made such design, order and
brilliance for us to enjoy and
to declare his glory to the
world.
It is so comforting to know
that in spite of being such a
huge God, he chose to enter
our realm. He became one of
us and sacrificed himself for
our sins so that we can be his
child.
God is huge, yet he lives
within my heart. Amazing.

America Recycles Day is Nov. 15, and here's how to do your part


News From
The
Watershed

Corine Burgess


Did you
know that
according
to a presi-
dential
proclama-
tion by
President
George W.
Bush, each
person in
America
produces
about 4
pounds of


waste every day?
Every year, millions of
people become educated
about the importance of recy-
cling and purchasing recycled
products on America
Recycles Day, which is cele-
brated on Nov. 15. This
year's theme is "It all comes
back to you."
The slogan sends multiple
messages: a recycled product
can return to consumers as
another new product; recy-
cling comes back to con-
sumers as an improved envi-


ronment, preservation of
resources and economic well-
being of the country; and it is
everyone's responsibility to
recycle.
America Recycles Day is
the only nationally recog-
nized day dedicated to
encouraging Americans to
recycle and buy recycled
products. Since its inception
in 1997, the campaign, which
is led by grassroots organiz-
ers in communities nation-
wide, has grown substantially
with residents in every state
pledging to recycle.
Even if you are already
recycling, chances are there
are other ways you can
increase your efforts. Take a
look around the house, at
work and even in school to
identify ways you can prac-
tice recycling.
Encourage others to recy-
cle too and you will be mak-
ing a difference in protecting
the environment.
Recycling is not difficult.
It sends less material to the


waste stream, and it results in
consuming less of our pre-
cious and limited natural
resources. Listed below are
some creative ways that we,
as consumers and good stew-
ards of our natural resources,
can practice daily to be part
of the solution and not the
problem.

Paper
+ After children's draw-
ings and paintings have been
displayed for a while they
can be used to wrap presents
- this also makes the present
special and personalized.
Junk mail can be used
as scrap paper or as bedding
for pets.
SPCA and pet shops
appreciate old newspapers.
Toilet paper roll centers
can be recycled.
Tear the paper into
strips and put it in your com-
post.
Old magazines are
appreciated by many doctors,
dentists, and motels.


AMERICA
RECYCLES DAY


NOV. 15

Grocery bags
It is better to use canvas or
cloth bags when shopping.
But, if that is not an option,
here are some ways you can
reduce, reuse and recycle
those plastic bags that pile
up.
Take them back to the
store for recycling.
Use them as bin liners.
Scrunch them up to sur-
round items when you're
packaging as an alternative to
bubble wrap.
Use them in the garden
to hold your grass cuttings
and hedge trimmings before
transfer to a compost bin.


Using household
waste in the garden
Aluminum trays from


pies and cakes make great
drip saucers to put under pot-
ted plants.
Plant seeds in egg car-
tons and cut up plastic con-
tainers such as two-liter soda
bottles or other food contain-
ers.
Old stockings can be
used to tie up plants in the
garden.
Old newspapers can be
used to mulch and weed con-
trol the garden. Wet the
newspaper and place thickly
on the garden, cover with
bark or stones.

Other items
Many schools and
kindergartens are often in
need of boxes, plastic bags,
old buttons, ribbons and
other materials that you may
usually throw away.
Use empty plastic and
cardboard food containers for
storage for kid's toys and
other items such as crayons,
pencils, etc.
They also make excellent


storage for nuts and bolts in
the garage or shed.

General tips
Reorganize the kitchen
so that it has an efficient
recycling area with good
sized bins to help with sort-
ing and holding. This will
encourage other members of
the household to contribute
and help share the work
instead of it being reliant on
one person.
Spread the word. By
telling other people and help-
ing them to get started, we
increase the savings that can
be made.
Also get your children
involved if we can educate
them early, they will grow up
and appreciate waste reduc-
tion and will be able to apply
these skills throughout their
lives.

Corine Burgess is a Natural
Resources Specialist with the
Highlands County Soil and
Water Conservation District.

News-Sun Sunday, November 9, 2008


Leo, open your mind to learn something new


Aries (March 21-April 20) Your
romantic side will be engaged this week,
Aries. Some important project tugs at
your heartstrings, too. Either way, this
will be a busy few days for you.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) Taurus,
someone is rushing you into making a
decision before you are ready. It is well
within your rights to stall and take all the
time you need to think things over.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) Gemini,
if a difficult decision is weighing on you,
it can't hurt to get some advice from
friends and family. Someone lends a
hand with some really wise words of
wisdom.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Friction
that you had with an authority figure is
starting to fade, Cancer, so now is the
time to get a jump on that project you've
been pondering. Expect things to move
slowly.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Leo, open
your mind in an effort to learn something
new. Set aside your ego for a while and
truly listen to what others have to say.
You may be surprised at the results.


HOROSCOPES



Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Virgo, this
week you'll find yourself in a feisty
mood. While you may be a ball of ener-
gy, your behavior may catch others off
guard and could alienate you for some
time.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Don't
worry about running into someone you
don't like this week, Libra. Give him or
her an overdose of kindness and see what
happens. Now is not the time for spend-
ing.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Do some-
thing for yourself this week, Scorpio.
Think along the lines of a health and fit-
ness overhaul. If the gym doesn't hold
appeal, find something else.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Use
your energy to your benefit this week,
Sagittarius. You may find that with a few


simple words you can actually move
mountains. Others gravitate toward you
on Wednesday.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -
Capricorn, if a new relationship stalls,
don't worry. Simply dust yourself off and
get back on the horse. New opportunities
await around the corner.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) -
Aquarius, if something is not working
for you, speak up and let others know.
Otherwise you risk getting taken advan-
tage of. Take a risk on Thursday.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Pisces,
stop clinging to beliefs that are simply
not working out for you. You are wasting
your time and the time of others around
you.

Notable birthdays

Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE To honor the nation's 25
million veterans and 1.3 million active-duty
service men and women, the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection
(DEP) will offer free day-use entry to all state
park visitors on Veterans Day, Tuesday.
"It is a privilege for DEP's state parks to
honor the American service members who
have courageously dedicated their lives to
serve and protect our country by offering free
admission to all state parks on Veterans Day,"
said DEP Secretary Michael W. Sole. "We
remind our residents and visitors to appreciate
and celebrate the many freedoms and privi-
leges we enjoy, such as Florida's state parks
and the recreational opportunities and festivals
they provide."
"Florida's state park system has a long tra-
dition of recognizing the selfless service and
sacrifice of America's veterans to our nation,"
said Florida Department of Veterans' Affairs
Executive Director LeRoy Collins Jr. "I salute
Secretary Sole and the men and women of the
Department of Environmental Protection for
honoring Florida's more than 1.7 million vet-
erans and their families."
Florida's state parks support veterans and
members of the U.S. Armed Forces year-round
through a variety of initiatives. The POW-
MIA flag is flown in Florida's state parks and
Orman House Historic State Park in Franklin
County is home to the only replica of the
Three Servicemen statue at the Veterans
Memorial in Washington, D.C. State parks
also work closely with Operation Purple, a
camp program for children of military parents
and other regional veterans groups, ROTC

programs and military affiliated organizations.
Active-duty members of the Florida National
Guard, their spouses and minor children also
receive half-price entry to Florida's state parks
year-round.
"We support and appreciate our veterans,
active-duty military members, their families
and continued contributions to our society,"
said Florida State Parks Director Mike
Bullock. "Through the multiple state parks
that protect, preserve and interpret Florida's
historical and cultural past, Florida's state
parks remain committed to honoring our
nation's heroes."
The first two-time Gold Medal winner hon-
oring the nation's best state park service,
Florida's state park system is one of the largest
in the country with 160 parks spanning almost
700,000 acres and 100 miles of sandy white
beach. Florida's state parks offer year-around
outdoor activities for all ages including: swim-
ming and diving in Florida's rivers and
springs, bird watching, fishing, hiking and
walking on natural scenic trails.
Battle re-enactments and Native American
festivals celebrate Florida's unique history,
while art shows, museums and lighthouses
offer a window into Florida's cultural heritage.
Florida's state parks are also home to the 2008
Best Beach in the nation. Caladesi Island State
Park, located off the coast of Southwest
Florida in Pinellas County, was honored with
this coveted award.

time for some Country music this month. The Eddy and Renee band will perform at 7 p.m.
Saturday, Nov. 15.



It's time for country music


at Highlands Hammock


The Music in the
Park concert series
has officially begun
at Highlands
Hammock and it's
time for some
Country music this
month. The Eddy and
Renee band will per-
form at 7 p.m. ro
Saturday, Nov. 15. Ham
"We're going to Doi
play good ole He
Country, Rock-a-
Billy, and even some
Bluegrass," Renee Riddle
said. "We want folks to come
have fun, feel good and enjoy
the music."
Renee and her husband,
Eddy, have been performing
together for years. Both per-
form with a selection of other
musicians and bands too.
Regular attendees of the
park's concert series might
remember the Ramblin Rose
Band a few years back. That's
the Bluegrass band Renee, her
sisters and mother perform in
together.
While music is usually a
family affair, she and Eddy
have performed together too.
"We've played in Arkansas,
Las Vegas, Indiana, and pretty
much throughout most of
Florida. In central Florida,

S we've played at
Cypress Gardens,
Bok Tower Gardens,
Universal Studios,
and the City of
Bartow's annual
Fourth of July
Celebration," adds
S Renee. "Why we
were even the house
nock special at Martin's
9thy Steak House in Lake
ris Wales for a few
years!"
With all this performing
and traveling, it won't be hard
to guess how Renee and Eddy
met. "He was running the
sound system for a country
fair where my family
Bluegrass band was perform-
ing," remembers Renee. "We
soon found out we had more
than the love of music in com-
mon."
Before this fateful meeting,
Eddy had played with many
bands making his living via
his performances. He's been
playing the guitar since he
was 9, which incidentally was
the same age that his wife
Renee picked up the fiddle.
Eddy majored in music at
Ozark College, played Blues
and Rock n Roll for years,
and even owned a recording
studio. Eddy also plays the
mandolin, which he learned in


his family's gospel band at
the tender age of 6.
Family and music continue
to go together for this group
as most of the members are
related. Eddy plays the lead
guitar and harmonica, while
wife Renee plays the fiddle.
Sisters Kathy DeVane and
Kristin Jenkins play the
banjo, mandolin, bass and
lead guitar, while mom
Loretta Woodson plays
rhythm guitar.
So pack up your lawn
chairs and blankets, grab a
flashlight and head on over to
Highlands Hammock on
Saturday, Nov. 15 for this out-,
door concert. Concert admis-
sion is just $5 per person and
accompanied kids age 12 and
under are admitted free of
charge. The usual park admis-
sion of $4 per vehicle is also
waived after 6 p.m. on concert
nights, so this outing truly fits
in your budget. All concert
proceeds benefit park
improvement projects and
there are many improvements
to come in the next year or so.
Inquire at the Friends of
Highlands Hammock tent for
more information.

Dorothy Harris is a park ranger
with the State of Florida.

AVON PARK
- Singer/Songwriter
Livingston Taylor will kick
off the SFCC Performing
Arts season at 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday, Nov. 19 in the
SFCC University Center
Auditorium. The perform-
ance is the first in the newly
expanded Kaleidoscope
Series, which was created in
2006 to offer a variety of
thought-provoking and fas-
cinating performances that
could range from classical
music to speaking engage-
ments.
Taylor's career as a pro-
fessional musician spans 30
years. He has toured with
such major artists as Linda
Ronstadt, Jimmy Buffett,
Fleetwood Mac, and Jethro
Tull. Known as the master
storyteller, he has recorded
13 albums, and maintains a
performing schedule of more
than 100 shows per year.
Also a professor, Taylor
has lectured regularly at the
Berklee College of Music at
Harvard University in
Boston since 1989. The con-
cept and much of the inspira-
tion for his book, Stage
Performance, come from
those classes.
Born in Boston in 1950,
Taylor is the fourth of five
children. He began perform-
ing in Boston coffee houses
at the age of 16. At age 18 he
met Jon Landau, who later
became Bruce Springsteen's
producer and manager. It
was Landau who produced
Taylor's first record when he
was 19.
An incredible songwriter,
Taylor has written most of
the music in his repertoire

Streals edge to win in thrilling 'Brawl'


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK In high
school football, it is the little
things that can make the dif-
ference at the end of the
night.
And in Highlands County's
annual backyard brawl
between the Avon Park Red
Devils and the Sebring Blue
Streaks, both teams were con-
stantly looking for the oppor-
tunity to make mountains out
of those mole hills.
This time around, it was the
Blue Streaks who came out on
top in this 87-year rivalry, and
the dust settled with Sebring
ahead just a little, 14-13, over
the Red Devils at Joe Franza
Stadium.
It was the little yellow flags
that called back two Virgil
Cooper touchdowns
for Avon Park, both. Seb
long runs and both on
last-minute holding
calls, and a little,
missed-point-after fol- Avon
lowing the second Red ,
Devil touchdown \
allowed Sebring's sec-
ond touchdown to be just
enough for the win.
And it was just a little fum-
ble with just over one little
minute left in the game that
allowed Sebring to run out the
clock.
"We got bit by the.turnover
bug again," said Avon Park's
head coach Andy Bonjokian
after the emotional game.
"Hat's off to Sebring, they did
a great job stopping our run-
ning game. A couple of funm-
bles didn't help us. out any,
we kept putting our defense in.
bad situations, and they per-
formed great, but that's foot-
ball."
"It's been some unbeliev-
able games over the last nine
weeks," said Sebring's head
coach Jared Hamlin. "This is
best we played all year long;
this .really shows the kids
character. They kept battling
even though we were down,
we found a way tonight, and
it paid off."
The game became an aerial
duel early on as both teams
could scramble .for. little
yardage on the ground.
Sebring's ground-pounding-
workhorse Daniel Burnett had
29 carries for 62 yards on the


night, while Avon Park's
Teddy Allen rushed for 32
yards on 11 carries.
The little out passes at the
line of scrimmage to
.Sebring's wide receiver
Devin Clarke would pick-up
just a couple of yards each
time, but they kept coming
and helped to make all the
difference in the clock-eating
game.
Sebring's sophomore quar-
terback Matt Grubb ruled the
air for the night with a 50-
percent average and his 15
completion's out of 30
attempts gained a total of 121
yards passing and one touch-
down.
Avon Park's Albert Moses
also went to the night skies,
completing just seven of his
21 attempts, for 30-percent
average, with one
ring touchdown and 152
yards.
But Moses gave up
S two little interceptions,
P both shutting down
3 .Avon Park drives at
3 crucial times.
Sebring drew first
blood after saving a long
drive with a punt-fake pass
from Caleb McGee to Kevin
Welborn, which set up a little
three-yard Burnett run for the
touchdown.
Avon Park fought back and
-scored their own after a not-
:so-little 28-yard pass from
Moses to Alonzo Robinson in
a third-and-26 situation that
kept the drive alive for Teddy
Allen's little six-yard romp
for six. .
The point after was good,
and at halftime the score was
tied at 7-7 as the excitement
frmi :'b6th throngs of fans
grew.
After two little drives by
both teams, it was little
Coopers big 33-yard touch-
down that put the Red Devils
out front, but the point after
went just a little outside, and
it left the score at 13-7 Avon
Park.
Grubb's screen pass went
awry when it was picked off
by Tekvoian Miller at the line
of scrimmage, but an Avon
park. turnover, this time a
Moses interception by the
Streak's Lorenzo Lowe,
stopped the drive short, less
than 35 yards from the end

we 've played all

year long. This

really shows the

kids' character'

Sebring head coach

zone.
The teams swapped back-
to-back interceptions on the
next series, as Red Devil
James Bland would snag a lit-
tle out-pass.
Just one play later, Lowe
would again return the favor,
but could not take advantage
of the interception before the
clock wound down the third
quarter.
Blue Streak Jack Howard
would stop another Red Devil
drive at the 49, but too little
yardage forced Sebring to
punt, giving Avon Park the
much needed field position.
The Red Devils would fum-
ble again, and turn the ball
over after just one play, set-
ting up Grubb for a long
series.
But the Avon Park defense
looked as if it might hold,
forcing a fourth-and-ten situ-
ation that Sebring went for
from the 13-yard line.
With a field goal not an
option with the 13-7 lead, the
Blue Streaks went for it with
a quick screen from Grubb to
Howard.
Picking up a key block
from Wellborn as he sprinted
up the right sideline, Howard
crossed the. goal line
-irntouched- for game-evening
touchdown. SA
SA good point-after attempt,
and Sebiring edged out to the
14-13 lead needed to cap the
game,
After a few delays, and the
use of the remaining Red
Devil time-outs, Avon Park
would get another attempt at a
win from the Streak 40 yard
line.
A Moses to Cooper connec-
tion was successful, but
Cooper, injured on the tackle,
.coughed up-the ball a little
short of the end zone, giving
Sebring the chance to run out
the little time left on the
clock.

Barons too much


for Lake Placid


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun sportswriter
LAKE PLACID Things
went from bad to worse in a
hurry as the- Lake Placid-.
Green Dragons faced off \with
the St. Petersburg Catholic
Barons Friday evening -at
Roger Scarborough Memorial
Field.
The Barons raced to what
proved to be an insur- St.
mountable lead as they
scored on their .first
three drives of the U
game putting the Lake
Dragons in a 19-0 hole.
Lake Placid man-
aged to get on the
scoreboard midway
through the third quarter but
the Barons put their offense
into overdrive and went on to
win 39-14.
"Its always disappointing
when you lose. We were flat
all week in practice and it
showed tonight," head coach
Jason Holden said.
Lake Placid got the ball to
start the game but the offense
looked out of sorts as the
Baron defense gobbled up the-
Green Dragon ball carriers
throwing them for losses forc-
ing a punt.
The Barons then used a
steady ground game from
Keelyan Bryant, as he had


runs of 6 and 8 yards.
But the big blow came
when Julian Smith ran an
end-around for 33 yards for a
6-0 lead.
'Lake Placid continued to
struggle on offense but did
get solid runs from Navahri
Holden and Caleb Jones.
On the ensuing punt,
Steven Guelff booted a
Pete 50-yard punt to pin the
St. Pete at their own
9 eight.
S. That didn't faze the
Placid "Barons, however, as
they went 92 yards in
4 seven plays behind the
solid running of
Bryant.
After consecutive runs by
Bryant, the Barons went to
the air where Chris McKay
hit TJ Snead on a 35-yard
pitch and catch.
The next play McKay hit
wingback Richard Waddell
for a 13 yard gain.
With the ball just inside the
30-yard line Bryant got the
handoff and broke several
tackles as he went 27 yards
for the score to push the lead
to-13-0.
The Green Dragon offense
showed a glimpse of life on
their next drive as Zack

Campbell hit Avery Young on
a 20-yard quick fade but the
Baron defense clamped down
forcing the Dragons to punt.
The Barons then made
quick work of the Dragon
defense as they went 66 yards
in five plays for the score.
The point after was no good,
pushing the lead to 19-0 with
11:04 left in the first half.
The Lake Placid defense
stepped up at this point, and
the offense got a final chance
after Eric Barajas recovered a
fumble.
But a last-second, 48-yard'
field goal attempt by Guelff
fell just short.
Lake Placid got themselves
back in the game early in the
third quarter as Zack
Campbell hit Alex Gort for a
25-yard gain.
Holden then followed that
with a thundering nine-yard
run that put the ball at the
eight.
Zack Campbell then hit
younger brother Jacob on an
8-yard pass for the Dragons
first score of the game.
Guelff added the, extra
point to cut the lead to 19-7.
St. Pete answered the
Green Dragon score as they
put together a 15-play drive
that covered 65 yards and ate
up most of the third quarter.
The Barons gave the
Dragons a steady dose of
Bryant on the drive as he car-


ried the ball seven times for
37 yards.
But it was the play of
McKay that cost the Dragons
as he finished the drive 4-for-
5 for 28 yards.
On their 15th play of the
drive, McKay hit Nick Filtz
on a route over the middle for
the score, pushing the Barons
lead to 25-7 with 11:07 to go
in the fourth quarter.
Lake Placid wasn't able to
respond to the big drive by St.
Pete and was forced to punt.
Another quick drive and
touchdown extended the lead
to 32-7.
The Dragons were able to
counter the score by St. Pete
thanks to getting great field
position as Anthony Gonzalez
took the kickoff back 40 yards
to the Baron 40-yard line.
Backup quarterback Kirk
Veley tossed up a nice pass to
Young on the opening play of
the drive that netted 35 yards
taking the ball down to the 5-
yard line.
Following a Baron penalty
that moved the ball even clos-
er Jones was thrown for a six-
yard loss.
But the Dragon offense
kept its' composure as Holden
rumbled for three yards taking
the ball down to the five.
On fourth down Jones took
a toss sweep and ran the ball
across the field, sneaking in
for the score.
Guelff's PAT made it 32-

But St. Pete answered right
back with a scoring drive that
provided for the final margin.
Lake Placid was led offen-
sively by Campbell who was
6-for-16 with 84 yards and a
touchdown.
The Dragons also got a
good look into the future as
Veley was 3 of 6 for 59 yards.
"I thought that Zack and
Kirk threw the ball really well
tonight. That part of our
offense is really starting to
open up," said Holden.
Holden finished the game


as the leading rusher for the
Dragons as he had 6 carries
for 20 yards while Jones had 9
rushes for 8 yards and a score.
"Navahri had a great game.
He is always around the foot-
ball on defense making big
hits. Offensively he makes
great block s and when given
the chance to run he runs
hard," said Holden.
The leading receiver for the
Dragons was Young who had
five catches for 86 yards
while Jacob Campbell had
three catches for 32 yards.

Integrating adult vaccines into your routine care


Every year, nearly 50,000
Americans, mostly adults,
die from diseases that vacci-
nation can prevent and mil-
lions more need to be hospi-
talized, get too sick to care
for loved ones, like children
or elderly parents, and are
forced to miss work. They
also run the risk of spreading
illness to those close to them.
"Not getting vaccinated
leaves adults all over our
country vulnerable to illness,
suffering and death," said Dr.
William Schaffner, president-
elect of the National
Foundation for Infectious
Diseases (NFID) and chair-
man of the Department of
Preventive Medicine at
Vanderbilt University School
of Medicine. "A greater
effort is needed to help more
adults understand the impor-
tance of vaccination."
Despite the availability of
many safe and effective vac-
cines for adults, a recent sur-
vey conducted by NFID
showed that Americans have
a lot of wrong ideas about
vaccines and the diseases
they prevent.
Nearly half of adults
surveyed said they are not
concerned about vaccine-pre-
ventable diseases and one-
fourth do not know they are
serious and can be life
threatening.
The truth is that vaccine-
preventable diseases can be
both serious and life threat-
ening. Every year, influenza
kills 36,000 Americans and
causes over 200,000 hospi-
talizations. Influenza has
been tied to an increased risk
of heart attack, stroke and
asthma flare-ups.


Pneumococcal disease can
cause pneumonia, meningitis
and bloodstream infection,
known as sepsis; it kills up to
5,000 Americans every year.
One in three adults are
not concerned about spread-
ing illness to their friends,
family members and co-
workers.
Infectious diseases spread
easily and can have devastat-
ing consequences when they
infect vulnerable people
Pertussis (whooping cough)
causes illness among adults,
but is most harmful when
spread to infants, who are at
the greatest risk of complica-
tions and death. CDC recent-
ly reported that a health care


worker in the newborn nurs-
ery of a general hospital gave
pertussis to 11 different
infants over a three-month
period in 2004. Five of the
11 infants had to be admitted
to a pediatric intensive-care
unit, but fortunately all sur-
vived. The health care work-
er got pertussis vaccine as a
child, but immunity decreas-
es over time and the booster
vaccine that might have pre-
vented this outbreak was not
available at the time of this
outbreak. It is now recom-
mended for all adolescents
and adults up to age 65.
Four in 10 adults say
they were vaccinated as a
child so they do not need to


be vaccinated again.
It is important to receive
appropriate vaccinations at
all ages. While some vac-
cines are only given during
childhood, others require
booster doses for adults.
There are also new vaccines
that were not available when
today's adults were children.
For example, the human
papillomavirus (HPV) vac-
cine, which prevents cervical
cancer in women, is now
available and recommended
for females starting at 11
years of age. Shingles (her-
pes zoster) vaccine is recom-
mended for individuals 60
years and older, because they


are at the highest risk of this
disease. Shingles can cause a
very painful rash and lead to
shingles pain syndrome,
which is hard to treat and can
last for years.
About one in eight
adults say they are too busy
to get a vaccine and about
one fourth think vaccines are
too expensive.
Most insurers provide cov-
erage for vaccinations, so
cost may be much less of an
issue than many adults think.
What's more, the cost of not
getting vaccinated can be
high. Hepatitis B causes
liver disease, and takes the
lives of 5,000 people every
year, costing roughly $700
million in health care and
lost productivity, like
through people missing
work. Adults can call their
health insurance plan to find
out whether it covers the vac-
cinations they need.
Vaccines are also often
offered at local health clin-
ics.
+ Talk to your doctor
about the vaccines you need.
Vaccines play a key role in
protecting adults and their
close contacts from danger-
ous, and sometimes life-
threatening, diseases. That is
why NFID is encouraging
adults to talk to their doctor
about what vaccines they
need. For more information
about vaccines and the dis-
eases they prevent, visit
NFID's Web site at

American
performing
icon raising
awareness of
diabetes
For more than 30 years,
Ben Vereen, a Tony award-
winning, Golden Globe and
Emmy Award-nominated
actor, dancer and singer, has
inspired audiences with his
versatility and creativity as a
performer. Now, he is hoping
to inspire others by sharing
his approach for dealing with
one of the greatest challenges
in his life living with type 2
diabetes.
Vereen, who recently
announced his diagnosis with
type 2 diabetes, is partnering
with sanofi-aventis, a world
leader in diabetes care, to
launch Take the Stage for
Diabetes Awareness, a
national awareness campaign
designed to educate people
living with the condition.
Vereen is among the nearly
24 million Americans living
with diabetes. When he was
first diagnosed in 2007, he
was scared and confused.
After he accepted his initial
diagnosis, he committed to
doing everything he could to
manage his diabetes. The first
step was working closely
with his doctor to find the
treatment plan that was right
for him. Vereen and his doc-
tor decided together that
along with watching the types
of foods he eats and exercis-
ing regularly, he should start
using insulin to help manage
his blood sugar.

Retired?

Travel too

expensive?

Given the current economic
climate, cutting back has
become a way of life for
many Americans. Retirees, in
particular, are looking at ways
to stretch the shrinking dol-
lars in their portfolios.
Common techniques for
reducing expenditures include
eating out less, incorporating
energy-saving devices and
routines in the home and
eliminating or curtailing such
things as club memberships
and season tickets.
Exacerbated by increased
travel costs, one extra that
often falls away when
finances are tight is travel.
But it is travel that is so often
listed as an aspiration of
retirees and not just "some
travel" but "more travel."
A growing number of
retirees and pre-retirees have
found a more affordable way
to satisfy their wanderlust,
while making memories and
feeling good about them-
selves. Voluntourism, or
"vacation with a purpose," is
gaining greater and greater
acceptance amongst people of
all ages.
Alison Gardner, in her
guidebook, "Travel
Unlimited: Uncommon
Adventures for the Mature
Traveler," contends that older
people generally sign up for
volunteer service for at least
one of three reasons:
1. A strong interest in a par-
ticular cause, project, or sub-
ject area, often related to a
longtime hobby or an earlier
career.
2. A desire to visit a region
in a "grassroots" way not eas-
ily accomplished by just pass-
ing through as a stranger,
either on an organized tour or
as an independent traveler.
3. A wish to give back
something significant to a
world that has been, by and
large, economically kind and
physically comfortable to
them in earlier years.
These are, indeed, solid
reasons for joining such a vol-
unteer team. But another
equally valid reason may be
the relative affordability of
such trips. And what makes


them less expensive?
Room and board costs
are generally low volunteer
teams usually do not stay in
fancy resorts and sometimes
enjoy meals cooked by area
residents.
Team members can
often fundraise among friends
and family to help offset
costs.
Air travel is sometimes
purchased as a group, with
special group rates.
In-country travel is fre-
quently done as a group, thus
cutting costs.
And while they can no
longer look for employer sup-
port, retirees can look to
organizations to which they
belong to help support their
trip.
One such organization that
offers its nearly 3 million
members the opportunity to
take a vacation with a purpose
at a reduced cost is
Minneapolis-based Thrivent
Financial for Lutherans. The
Thrivent Builds Worldwide
program, which operates in
alliance with Habitat for
Humanity's Global Village
program, sends teams of vol-
unteers to locations in the
United States and abroad to
help build homes for families
in need. While non-members
can also join these teams,


Thrivent members enjoy even
lower costs per trip because
of their Thrivent membership.
"While each Thrivent
Builds Worldwide trip is dif-
ferent, all include work, rest
and free time," says Alison
Jones, a team coordinator
with the program. "No one is
expected to do more than they
are able on the work site and
all teams spend a few days
touring local historic areas
and attractions."
"It was really a great expe-
rience and I would do it again
in a heartbeat," says
Wisconsin retiree and
Thrivent member Fred
Ebbesen. "And Thrivent's
support helped so that both
my wife and I could go to
New Orleans [with Thrivent
Builds Worldwide]."
Retirees should definitely
study the potential for "vaca-
tions with a purpose" before
cutting travel completely
from their budgets. For those
interested in learning more,
there are myriad Web sites
offering further information,
including www.volun
tourism.org. Those interested
in learning more about the
opportunities that Thrivent
Builds Worldwide offers can

If you've got a senior citizen in your life
suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's dis-
ease, you probably worry about them wan-
dering away and not being able to find their
way home. A new law that addresses this
issue is under consideration right now.
In September, the House of
Representatives passed the National Silver
Alert Act. Much like an Amber Alert for
missing children, the act would establish a
formal, public notification system to spread
information about senior citizens who are
missing. The bill was introduced after an 86-
year-old Florida woman wandered away
from an assisted living facility and was later
found dead.
Visiting Angels, an organization that pro-
vides in-home care for thousands of seniors
across the country, is urging everyone to call
and write their senators to encourage them to
sponsor the bill.
"Senior safety is first and foremost for
Visiting Angels," says chief operating offi-
cer Patricia Drea. "The National Silver Alert
Act would give families the peace of mind
that, if their loved one is missing, the public
would be notified and on the lookout for
them."
Currently Silver Alert programs operate in
about a dozen states and the National Silver
Alert Act would provide federal support to
the state initiatives and assist in the expan-
sion of Silver Alert. The bill, S 3579, would
create a Silver Alert Coordinator within the
Department of Justice, who would set volun-
tary guidelines and monitor state Silver Alert
programs. The coordinator would consult
with agencies such as the Federal
Communications Commission, the
Department of Transportation and the
Administration on Aging to develop best


practices and provide federal funds to imple-
ment state Silver Alert programs.
"Reuniting missing seniors with their fam-
ilies requires a rapid and united response,"
says Drea. "With the National Silver Alert
Act our communities can use and build on
existing resources to help keep our seniors
safe."
Visiting Angels and other organizations
serving senior citizens are asking the public
to contact their senators and encourage them
to become a co-sponsor of S 3579 and to
support the bill when it comes to a vote on
the floor. You can find your senator at
www.senate.gov.

Life's an 'Ernie'

Prose on the Life and Times of a Cockatiel


By Carol Forney

Wake up with Joy in your
heart...
unless a violent storm kept
you awake all night; in that
case, sleep all day!

Know the Hawks from the
Sparrows...
some can Bite your head
off-
some only think they can!

Stand up for yourself...
you're the 'expert' on you

others have their own bat-
tles to fight!

Immerse yourself in the
things you love...
a Fresh ear of Corn, is a
pleasure -
but, letting it dry-out,
makes it last longer;
And, it actually has More


Flavor!

Love the foods that keep
you healthy...
even when it takes a
demanded schedule
-to provide your 'millet'
exactly at 7 p.m.!

Fight it, beak and nail,
having your wings clipped...
the freedom of flight exer-
cises your Body and Soul;
then, you can always fly
back to your secure cage.

When your 'Provider'
takes a vacation...
ration your food,
and conserve your energy.

Leave, and demand some
time for yourself...
the essence of life and cre-
ation -
Required the moment to
think.


Respect each element of
Earth...
be it air, water, earth or
rock;
as...each, without care,
has the-ibility to
either trample or save you, -

Begin each day with a
"Post Time" whistle...
every day is a race.
every day has a prize;
whether a learning experi-
ence or a surprise!

When it's that time, to get
your cage cleaned...
insist, while you're sitting
on the garage workbench
that the radio is tuned,
loud, to Country Music!

One more thing: Keep
your feathers Clean!


Two elderly ladies were discussing the upcoming dance at the
country club.
'We're supposed to wear something that matches our husband's
hair, so I'm wearing black,' said Mrs. Smith.
'Oh my,' said Mrs. Jones, 'I'd better not go.'

Leaving values, morals and


instructions after life


The writing of an ethical will is an ancient
practice that takes its beginning in the Bible
when Jacob gathers his sons and imparts the
values, morals and instructions he wishes to
teach them and their descendants. Jacob
begins a tradition of parents writing ethical
testaments that became a common practice
among Moslems and Christians as well.
Rather than money or possessions, an ethical
will bequeaths the "valuables" of beliefs,
ideas, morals, dreams, and family stories.
We are in the process of revising our wills.
It is a sad fact that some of the monetary
bequeaths have been spent; sadder still, some
of those who received the bequests are no
longer with us. So this is a tough job and we
worked hard over it trying to be fair and
equitable; detailing items and who should
get them; inventorying jewelry; locations of
papers; funeral instructions; designating cus-
tody for Miss Bruce, my darling two-pound
dog.
When I got to the dog it came to me that
this was my prize possession the one I
cared most about, not the material things. I
realized I might share this choice with some
of the members of my family too.
We began to think about what other non-
material things we wanted to relay to our
children and friends. What did we want to be
remembered for? As somebody with lots of
"stuff" or as kind? As clock collectors; or
collecting funds for the victims of hurricane
Andrew? As having antique jewelry or rocks
and fossils millions of years old collected at
wonderful, scenic sites as we traveled around
the country which we show at schools; as
having furniture or as readers with a large
collection of varied books we reserved space
for ... in a very small house?
One of my friends made up this list of
what he wants to include in his will and with
his permission I include it here: devotion to
family; do no evil; have hope; love (I will

hate is like taking poison and expecting the
other fellow to die.") live. This is a pretty
powerful list and instructions for living a
good life.
Actually this is only the beginning ...
thinking about an ethical will. It is really not
about a will at all but how you want to live
your life. How to do it early on not wait for
some future time when you have "some-
thing" to leave your heirs.
I am sending an outline of a generic will to
my children, grandchildren, and grown
great-grandchildren including excerpts from
Shakespeare's speech by Polonius in
"Hamlet" and a copy of Sam Levinson's'
"Everything But Money," with the sugges-
tion that we share these thoughts and writ-

Icon raising awareness about diabetes


Continued from page 1E
about the importance of man-
aging my blood sugar levels
to help reduce the risk of dia-
betes-related complications,"
Vereen said. "I had many
doubts and fears about taking
insulin, but since I never
wanted diabetes to define
who I am or stop me from
doing the things I love, I kept
an open mind about all poten-
tial treatment options."
His treatment plan has got-
ten his blood sugar where it
needs to be.and now his dia-
betes is under control. Vereen
hopes that sharing his story
will raise awareness and
inspire others living with dia-
betes to work closely with
their doctors and take control,
manage their blood sugar lev-
els properly and "act" on their


diabetes.
"I am lucky I have a great
doctor who helped me reach
my personal treatment goals,"
Vereen says. "But it is impor-
tant for people to know that I
take action every day to main-
tain my blood sugar control.
Checking my blood sugar lev-
els often, continuing to make
healthy food choices, exercis-
ing regularly, monitoring' my
activity levels, and taking my
diabetes medication as pre-
scribed has become part of
my daily routine."

Stroke: Save
yourself by
knowing the
five signs and
acting quickly

When a stroke strikes,
every minute counts in saving
the person's life. Speedy treat-
ment depends on the person
afflicted or someone near
them recognizing the five
signs that a stroke is occur-
ring and getting emergency
help fast. You can remember
the five signs of stroke with
these five words: walk, talk,
reach, see, and feel.
Stroke is the third-leading
cause of death in the United
States and a leading cause of
disability. About 5.3 million
Americans suffer from
strokes annually, which
means you or someone you
care about could be affected.
Dr. Diana Fite, an emer-
gency physician from
Houston, experienced a stroke
in 2006 while driving her car.
She was 53 at the time.
Thanks to her quick reaction
and prompt medical attention,
she made a full recovery.
"Because I am an emer-
gency physician, I knew to
call 9-1-1 to get help immedi-
ately, which is why 1 recov-
ered quickly," Fite says. "But
I know from my experience as
a doctor that too many people
ignore stroke symptoms or
wait for them to go away,
with tragic results."
Fite is the spokesperson for
"Give Me 5 for Stroke: Walk,
Talk, Reach, See, Feel," a
campaign aimed at educating
Americans about the five
warning signs of a stroke. The
campaign is made up of three
organizations: the American
Academy of Neurology, the
American College of
Emergency Physicians and
the American Stroke
Association. The group came
up with five words to help
people remember the warning
symptoms of stroke more eas-


ily: walk, talk, reach, see and
feel. By paying attention to
how a person walks, talks,
reaches, sees and feels, indi-
viduals and family members
can recognize when a stroke
is happening and react imme-
diately.
"Walk" is to recognize if a
person's balance is off-kilter,
"talk" identifies if a person's
speech is slurred or their face
is droopy, "reach" points out
if the person feels numb on
one side, "see" pinpoints if
the person has partially or
completely lost their vision
and "feel" discovers if the
person has a severe headache.
If any of these stroke symp-
toms occur suddenly, call 9-1-
1 immediately.
Actress Morgan Fairchild,
who recently played Sophia
Blakely in "Fashion House"
and is remembered as Jordan
Roberts in the '80s TV drama
"Falcon Crest," has teamed
up with the organizations in
promoting "Give Me 5 for
Stroke."
"I witnessed first-hand the

devastating effects of stroke
on my mother," says
Fairchild, the primary care-
giver for her mother, who suf-
fered a series of debilitating
strokes until her death in
1999. "Stroke is a killer, but
for too many people, it does-
n't need to be. If you know the
warning signs and get medical
help right away, you have an
excellent chance of making a
good recovery.
"Women especially need to
know the warning signs,
because they account for over
60 percent of the deaths from
stroke," Fairchild adds. "We
are also the health informa-
tion keepers for our families
and must spread the word to
our siblings, spouses, parents
and friends about how to rec-
ognize a stroke."

For people with heart and breathing condi-
tions--and their caregivers--it can be difficult
to determine if the body is getting enough
oxygen. For the more than 1.2 million
Americans receiving long-term oxygen ther-
apy for conditions such as Chronic
Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD),
there is a way to check critical oxygen satu-
ration levels in a convenient way.
People commonly check their own weight
and temperature whenever they need to, and
many patients can check their blood pressure
and blood sugar at home as well. With a fin-
gertip pulse oximeter you can tell if you're
getting enough oxygen in all situations.
Doctors say the number of Americans with
COPD and those receiving long-term oxygen
therapy will rise as baby boomers age. The
vast majority of these individuals should be
active to improve their quality of life. A per-
sonal oximeter can become part of a daily
routine to help people stay active and take
back control of their health.
Oxygen saturation measures how much
oxygen the blood is carrying. The ideal oxy-
gen saturation level is between 90 and 98
percent in all activities. To determine this
level, an oximeter shines two separate beams
of light into the blood circulating through the
small vessels (capillaries). The light beams

reflect the amount of oxygen in the blood. If
the reading indicates that oxygen levels are
too low, oxygen flow settings should be
adjusted to achieve the correct saturation
level.
Doctors often prescribe pulse oximetry for
patients with respiratory diseases such as
COPD and conditions such as heart failure.
In the past, such patients would often be
required to visit a clinic, sometimes daily, to
have their oxygen levels monitored.
However, with a personal fingertip pulse
oximeter such as an Onyx II, blood oxygen
saturation can be measured independently,
any time, anywhere. Managing a condition
like COPD is a lifelong commitment, so
choosing a high-quality, durable and accu-
rate pulse oximeter with a warranty is impor-
tant.
A fingertip pulse oximeter can be particu-
larly helpful for family members acting as
caregivers for older adults, The patient sim-
ply places their finger into the fingertip
device for a reliable and easy to read spot-
check. By providing non-invasive monitor-
ing, a device like a fingertip pulse oximeter
can help individuals live independently in
their homes for a longer period of time.
