Electronics popular

SEBRING 'Tis the season, and if \ou are
looking for electronics, Highlands County has
plenty of places to pick up those hot
items this year, and lots of
selection.
Even with the struggling
economy, America still
seems to love its gadgets.
The Consumer
Electronics Association
forecast industry sales this
year at $171 billion, up
from an estimated $161
billion in 2007, which
was an 8.2 percent rise
from 2006.
TV sales alone are up
40 percent over last year.
The explanation is
that people are staying
home more often to
save funds, so are
investing in home
entertainment and
other electronic toys to
stave off cabin fever,
particularly when they ]
can find good deals
online.

A leisurely ride through the country

A group of cyclists ride through north Lake Placid Saturday morning at a
touring pace. They leave from the Sebring Bike Shop at 8:30 a.m. every
third Saturday of the month, traveling between 20 and 30 miles at a pace of
up to 16 mph. "A number of people ride most Saturdays," said Rita
Bennet. "We have between 8 and 12 people showing up for the rides even
when we don't have official rides scheduled." Bennet is a member of the
Highlands Pedalers, the local cycling club (highlandspedalers.com).

SEBRING According to the National Retail
Federation trade group, sales this Christmas sea-
son are expected to rise only 2.2 percent to
$470.4 billion, the slowest growth since 2002.
The group adds that prices for toys have risen
5-10 percent due to manufacturers' costs,
Which in turn means fewer items will have
been sold.
eCommerce, a Web site addressing online
J retail, predicts a slowdown as well, with
Sonline sales increasing approximately 10
percent this season, much less than the 20
percent-plus increases over the last cou-
pi ple of years.
In short, Wall Street turmoil, uncer-
Stain pension fund futures, troubled

S, tailed credit are all combining to

SS dence, a primary force behind

SEBRING For 31 years the
American Cancer Society has held
the Great American Smoke Out the
third Thursday of November. The
idea is to encourage, and challenge,
smokers to go an entire 24 hours
without smoking.
Manage a week without puffing
tobacco and a person has something
to really be thankful for on the
fourth Thursday of November, along
with the turkey and stuffing.
But such a feat is far from easy
and smokers are warned not to
become discouraged or guilt ridden
- quitting tobacco is more difficult
than quitting heroin and typically it
will take more than one try.
The fact is that tobacco is a dead-
ly product, and one that has been

FDLE probe of

Clerk campaign

closes with no

charges filed

Accusations made
against Germaine
prove to be unfounded
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING The elections are
finally over, and the ballots are
almost put to bed.
So are some of the pre-election
accusations that were flying around
hot and heavy.
Especially those in the Clerk of
Courts race.
The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) recently
turned over a press release that put
to rest accusations that candidate,
and now Clerk-elect, Bob Germaine
attempted to trade
favors for support.
Germaine, who
defeated Director of
Compliance and
Internal Audit for
the clerk's office
Mary Wilson in the Germaine
Nov. 4 election, said
he's glad the issue is over, adding
that he was never officially notified
of any investigation.
"I had so many people come out
an help (my campaign) and Bob
Jamison just can't believe that peo-
ple would support me because I was
the best person for the job,"
Germaine said.
"I'm just happy it's over with and
looking forward to taking over at the
clerk's office on Jan. 6. That's when
the real job begins."
According to the FDLE, on Sept.
2, Bob Jamison, senior director of
business services for the Clerk of
Courts, filed the complaint against
Germaine. That accusation resulted
in the subpoena of at least five coun-
ty employees, who were questioned
about the issue.
Jamison, who gave $500 to
Wilson's campaign, claimed
Germaine approached him and two
other clerk employees seeking polit-
ical support in exchange for unspec-
ified offers.
Jamison then sought out personal
legal council, who advised him to
file a complaint with FDLE.
All of Clerk of Courts office
employees questioned Jerome

Proposed park closing

a sign of the times


Lake June-In- Winter
Park targeted
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssuin.com
LAKE PLACID -
Governor Charlie Christ
asked all state agencies earli-
er this year to cut 10 percent
from their proposed budgets
for 2009.
The Division of Recreation
and Parks has targeted 19
state parks for temporary clo-
sure in order to meet the gov-
ernor's request.
Lake Placid's Lake June-
In-Winter State Park is on the
list.
Located on the east side of
Lake June-In-Winter at the
end of Daffodil Street, the
park protects an area of
unspoiled "scrub", the natural
habitat which has distin-
guished the Lake Wales Ridge
since primeval times.
It is a harsh landscape,
dominated by scrub oak and
palmetto, that is beautiful at
the same time.
Growth is typically stunted
because of the extremes of
wet and dry, the porous sandy
soil and frequent brush fires.
The park has no develop-
ment except for a half-mile
nature trail and one picnic
area with a shelter and some
picnic tables.
There are no grills or rest
rooms, but hikers may use the


Teens charged in
multi-county
crime spree


white sand fire lanes.
The park does provide the
opportunity to experience
some of Florida's rarest
plants and animals in a
remote wilderness setting.
Ospreys and bald eagles are
often sighted and bobcats
have been seen along with
scrub jays and gopher tortois-
es both endangered not
to mention the many lizards,
mice and insects.
However, becausethe park
is relatively new and
unknown, has so few ameni-
ties, and attracts a more
adventuresome sightseer, it's
seldom visited, which is
exactly how it ended up on
the temporary closure list.
"We fully intend to re-open
the 19 parks potentially fac-
ing closure when the state's
economy improves," Jessica
Kemper, information director
for the Florida Parks Service,
said.
"If closed, (the park) will
remain under the supervision
of a full-time caretaker."
The state legislature is
responsible for the final deci-
sion, which will be made dur-
ing the 2009 legislative ses-
sion.
Other neighboring parks to
be affected are the Allen
David Broussard Catfish
Creek Park in Polk County
and the Kissimmee Prairie
Preserve State Park in
Okeechobee County.

Clinic teaches students
proper way to show animals
at fair

By ROMONA WASHINGTON
editor@newssun .com
SEBRING For years, youth in Highlands
County have spent countless hours choosing,
caring for, preparing and showing animals in
the months leading up to the annual fair.
The past two years, Sebring High School
FFA alumni have organized a showmanship
clinic to help students know what to expect
when their animals are judged. More than 60
kids from across the county representing FFA
at the high school and middle school levels,


One of the teens, Deol
Narayan, is back in town
and at the Highlands
County Jail ready to face
his local charges. Narayan
had been in the Orange
County jail. Locally, he is
facing 10 counts of grand
theft of a firearm, three
counts of robbery with a
firearm (for robbing the BP
Store on State Road 17 in
Sebring on July 8, robbing
the A&J Petroleum store at
3323 US 27 in Sebring on
July 12 and robbing a man
near that same store Aug.
16). He also faces of armed
burglary, possession of
marijuana with intent to sell
and possession of narcotic
equipment as well as larce-
ny and dealing in stolen
property. He is being held
without bond.


as well as 4-H members, attended Saturday's
clinic to learn the proper way to show rabbits,
fowl, swine and cattle.
Before splitting up, SHS ag teacher Hallie
Webb told the youth that they would be able
to take what they learned at the clinic and
with their animals and use it anywhere in the
world. "When you learn to respect an animal,
you can easily respect a person. When you
learn how to treat an animal, that animal will
love you back," he said.
Webb warned the parents in attendance that
there would be tears flowing at the Junior
Livestock Sale and Show, slated to take place
during Fair Week, Jan. 23-31. The tears, he

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christr,@newssun.com
AVON PARK An Avon
Park High School student is
facing a 10-day suspension
and possible expulsion for
bringing a BB gun on school
grounds Thursday.
School and district officials
would not say how it was dis-
covered, only that nobody
was injured.
"It was not during the
school day ... when students
were on campus," assistant
principal Seth Lambert said.
"This was an after-school
thing an extracurricular


event after school."
Though a BB gun may not
pose the threat of a real gun,
based.on Florida Statutes it is
considered a weapon, Deputy
Superintendent Rodney
Hollinger said.
"As per the code of conduct
it is considered a weapon,"
and the student will be disci-
plined according to the code
of conduct, Lambert said.
At all grade levels, students
bringing a weapon on school
grounds are recommended for
expulsion from school, after
serving a 10-day suspension.
"That would be the likely
track it is going to take,"
Hollinger said.
School board members act
on expulsion requests by staff
every month during their
board meetings.

Toy Run

feeling

effects of

economy

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK The
season for giving is here
and already charitable
organizations and events
are starting the feel the
effects of the economy.
"Everybody is in a finan-
cial dilemma right now.
Everybody's having a hard
time, but the ones having a
hard time before are having
a much harder time," said
Tony Ballard, organizer of
the Lake Placid Food and
Toy run.
Ballard started the Toy
Run in December of 2000
with less than two dozen
bikers and was able to con-
tinue to grow that number
and the number of needy
children and families
helped through the event.
"This year donations
have been very slim, but
the phone calls have been
great," he said. "But even
the first year we provided
for 50 or 60 children and
now we consistently pro-
vide for over 100."
Area pastors take the
toys from the end of the run
at Lake Placid's Action
Revival Family Worship
Center and distribute them
to needy families all over
the county.
"It's grown enough that
not only do we help chil-
dren from Avon Park,
Sebring and Lake Placid
but we have families from
Wauchula and the southern
part of the county its
grown that much."
Participants are asked to
bring one toy and one non-
perishable food item to the
First Christian Church in
AvoffPark.
The event starts at 11
a.m. Dec. 13 as the bikers -
caravan to Lake Placid
bringing the gifts to the
needy. It's not just open to
motorcyclists, but also to
caravans of people.
"We do have people
come in cars," Ballard said.
"It doesn't matter what
mode of transportation."
They are met with a bar-
becue lunch provided by
the church and Ballard con-
tinues to offer door prizes
to participants.
"Everybody likes win-
ning something when they
go somewhere," he said. "I

tion and yet Obama would not
choose Hillary for his vice
president. That sure doesn't
make sense. My opinion,
Hillary should have been
president anyway.
On to the next thing, that
AIG insurance company: I
just learned that they've had
another fancy resort vacation
in Arizona to the tuen of
$342,000 and that Edward
Liddy, who is the CEO, I
don't know why Hank
Paulson isn't making them
pay that money back. That
they've had three resort trips
now to more than a million
dollars total. Disgusting and
its taxpayers money.
Also, why can't the Federal


Reserve repeal what hap-
pened to this $2 trillion. They
are keeping silent on it and
they won't release where they
put it and it's against the law
to do that.

I recently saw on TV that
nine banks are asking for
bailout funds from the tax-
payers. They ought to let at
least half of them fail. We
don't need all of these banks
anyway.
Also these crazy credit card
companies are wanting free
money and they are really
tough on the consumers with
their late fees and very high
interest rates through the ceil-
ing. It's not fair to the
American people.

Family Fun

Reading Night

at Fred Wild

Elementary

Dozens of families turned out
Thursday as Fred Wild Elementary
School held its Family Fun Reading
Night. Students in different grade
levels performed skits they read
aloud, recited poems, or read stories
simultaneously in groups.
Parents were given tips on how to
help their children read more. For
example, when eating out, have chil-
dren read the menu and discuss the
choices. The most important thing a
parent can do, each teacher said, is
read to their children at night.
To reinforce the event, books were
distributed at no cost, and a book
fair was on site so more could be
bought. Children were also given
gift packs by the Early Learning
Coalition to take home.

Like most businesses, the News-Sun
has an out-of-the-way area for the
tobacco smokers among us. Ours is
tucked into a corner of the loading dock
and consists of a cement table with two
matching benches.


The fact that the smokers
who gather there at odd times
during the day, seemingly
shunned by everyone else, do
so despite driving rain, after-
noon heat or mosquitoes is the
perfect metaphor for how far
people will go to enjoy things
that are bad for them.
The idiocy, of course, is
that anyone sits out there at
all.
But too many of us deal
with the addiction of tobacco
ourselves, or know and love
people addicted to tobacco, to
have anything but respect for
the power of nicotine.
Don't misunderstand.
We're not saying respect here
in the sense of anything posi-
tive we're using respect in
the sense of acknowledging a
formidable enemy, one hard
to conquer.
For example, one of our
writers has quit smoking on
four different occasions,
going tobacco free for years
at a time 12 straight in one
instance only to succumb
again and again.
Right now he is trying to
quit once more after falling
off the wagon weeks before
another third year anniver-
sary.


So we approach the Great
American Smoke Out this
week with great seriousness
and admiration for everyone
with the courage and disci-
pline to take part.
To the young among you
we say with actual ferocity:
Don't start. Once in the grips
of this terrible addiction, you
will never be free.
Yeah sure, some of you
think smoking is cool, the cig-
arette hanging out of the cor-
ner of your mouth with the
curl of smoke twisting up the
side of your face. And unfor-
tunately the act of inhaling
and exhaling smoke can be
soothing (when you're not
coughing your lungs out), so
it is all too easy to rationalize


the habit especially
because denial is such a
strong component of the
addict's disease.
"I'm not an addict, I can
quit anytime I want," is the
depressingly common refrain.
Well, as a public service,
here is a list of signs you are a
tobacco addict, and for those
of you who have never
smoked a list of reasons to
never start.

You know you are a
tobacco addict if:
1. You find yourself light-
ing a cigarette using a burner
on the stove.
2. You dig through ashtrays
and resort to smoking the
short butts.
3. You leave your cigarettes
in the car to keep from smok-
ing at home and later find
yourself running out barefoot
and in your pajamas to get
one.
4. You're pulling off the
cushions of the couch at mid-
night hoping to find a loose
cigarette.
5. Half way to work you
turn around and go home
because you left your pack of
cigarettes on the dresser.
6. You use your asthma
inhaler so you can breathe
well enough to smoke.

Good luck on quitting.
Chew gum, chomp on a tooth-
pick, get a nicotine patch, or
lock yourself in a closet -
believe it or not the anxiety
passes.

The election is over ... let the blame begin


Now that the election is over and
President-Elect Obama is starting to
make plans for his stint in the White
House, the Republican Party is engaged
in a time honored post-election activity:
deciding whose fault it was that they
lost.
There is a reason for this. People who
want a future in politics do not want to
be blamed for something like losing a
presidential election. Things like that on
a resume are not helpful if you want to
keep on being a player.
I've heard all kinds of things. Poor
Governor Sarah Palin has taken a num-
ber of hits and been subjected to some
nasty comments made by people who
hide under a cloak of anonymity. I
would love to know who these people
are, if only to make sure that whenever
they seem close to being an influence in
government I could remind everyone I
knew what slime they truly were.
Senator John McCain is also being
blamed for running a less than effective
campaign. I'm a little more sympathetic
to this theory, since McCain was techni-
cally in charge of everything. But I tem-
per this, because I think that while
McCain is a part of the whole problem,
he is just a part.
Some may want to blame people like
Rush Limbaugh and James Dobson,
whose support of McCain was less than


Laura's
Look
Laura Ware

enthusiastic. Indeed, Limbaugh kept up
his parodies of McCain throughout the
campaign, and trust me when I say that
the parodies were not flattering.
But as a former Republican, and one
who at least tries to pay attention to pol-
itics, I'd like to spend the rest of the
column explaining who lost the election
for the Republican Party, why they did,
and what they can do to fix it.
Republican Party? If you want to see
who lost the election, all you have to do
is look in the mirror. The blame lies
with you specifically, the leadership
of the party.
What did you do? You forgot who
you were. You forgot who you repre-
sented. And in forgetting those things,
you lost the trust of the people you
claimed to be speaking for.
The Republican Party I was once a
member of believed in a small federal
government and fiscal responsibility.
They didn't bloat the government with
unnecessary programs and try to out-
spend the Democrats.
That party didn't compromise their
principles in order to make people like
them. They didn't take their base for


granted.
The Republican Party that exists
today are guilty of all this and more.
They lost my trust months ago, to the
point I left the party and registered NPA
(no party affiliation). Since it appeared
the party wouldn't listen to my words,
leaving was the only way to send a mes-
sage. And I'm not the only one who felt
that way.
I have nothing against John McCain.
But McCain was not a nominee for the
base. It was for the new leadership, who
wanted to water down the principles that
used to mean something.
Does the Republican Party want peo-
ple like me back? They have to repent.
The word "repent" actually means to do
a 180-degree turn. That is what has to
happen if the modern Republican Party
doesn't want to go down in history as
the Democratic Party Lite.
Go back to what you once stood for.
Uphold the principles that once made
the party great. Don't back down. And
show people like me you can be trusted
with our allegiance once again.
Go home, Republican Party. Call us
when you get there.

Big money, smears
overcome by truth
Editor:
It was with a great deal of
interest I watched the cam-
paign tactics of Ron
Grimming in his unsuccess-
ful run for sheriff of
Highlands County. The big
money, lies, innuendo and
smears were overcome by the
truth and a job well done by
the incumbent, Susan
Benton. The citizens of this
county were able to see
Grimming for what he really
is and chose accordingly.
I have been close to sever-
al members of the Florida
Highway Patrol over the
years and I went to them
when I learned that their for-
mer director was running for
sheriff. They gave me the
inside information on how he
ruined a once proud organi-
zation.
He destroyed the careers
and reputation of several
good people while promoting
or retiring some that should-
n't be trusted to hold the title
of trooper. In his campaign
literature and speeches he
took credit for programs that
were not his at all and were
in place before he arrived.
He nearly dismantled the
chain of command, under-
mined his supervisors at
every level and led a steady
decline in productivity. In
truth all he really did for
FHP was change the uniform
jacket and hat.
To my fellow citizens of
Highlands County, I say
thank you for your percep-
tion and to Sheriff Benton I
say thank you for a job well
done. To your credit, you
didn't lower yourself to the
level of your opponent. Keep
up the good work.

What direction are.
we headed in?
Editor:
The United States White
House has established the
"Security Prosperity
Partnership" office in the
U.S. Department of
Commerce where it has
worked in virtual secrecy for
two years; something the
Bush administration has
denied. Working groups are
now laying the foundation
for a European-style North
American Union combining
the United States with
Canada and Mexico. Topics
being discussed are harmo-
nization and regulations
between the United States,
Mexico and Canada, mostly
done in secret clearly driven
by the "American
Competitiveness Council"
representing the top 10
multi-national corporations
from each of the three
nations, seeking ways to
open borders and integrate
private business into govern-
ment policy, with virtually no
attention from the media.
Another ceremony took
place Feb. 14, at the U.S.
State Department,
Washington, D.C., to discuss
integration of the three coun-
tries with a move toward
linking a North America
community with the
European Union with no
members of Congress pres-
ent. They are seeking a con-
vergence of administration
rules ad regulations between
Europe and North America,
an effort to break down
national borders and abandon
national sovereignty.
I understand leaders from
the three countries met again
in April 2008 in New Orleans
making further progress
including harmonization in
areas of bi-fuel and health
among other things. On


March 23, Canadian Prime
Minister Paul Martin report-
ed that the three were signing
the "Security Prosperity
Partnership." It was later
reported that their long-range
plans are to establish connec-
tions and institutions con-
necting the three countries
similar to the European
Union with future freedom of


movement of capital, goods,
services and persons.
All three countries call for
the establishment of a "North
American Council," an inde-
pendent body of advisors
composed of eminent persons
outside the government.
Council for Foreign
Relations called for common
security border perimeter
around North America by
2010 with free movement of
people, commerce and capital
to be facilitated by a North
American border pass replac-
ing the U.S. passport ...
These bonds between govern-
ment and private internation-
al corporations come armed
with government power to
tax, enforce policy and emi-
nent domain. ..
Many of these contracts
have "no complete" clauses
which give these corpora-
tions power to charge what-
ever they want for Americans
to travel on their highways.
If there is no alternative
route to get off, what choice
do drivers have? ...
The alignment of corpora-
tions and government is done
at the expense of ordinary
people the opposite of a
free market controlled by
consumers. This is the future
offered by SPP. Though
President Bush calls these
plans a dialog, Congressman
Ron Paul says these have had
no congressional involve-
ment ...
Nafta's harmful effects of
jobs, businesses and immi-
gration cannot be denied. It
is serving as a legal basis for
destroying our independence.
When I think of how a few
are trying to destroy
America, I could literally
become ill, but I know God
is still in control and has all
power. ...

Left behind at
BayPines
Editor:
I used to take the Veterans
Administration bus to the
Bay Pines Hospital in St.
Petersburg, but not any more.
A few weeks ago when I
was at the hospital, the van
left me stranded with no way
to get back to Avon Park.
I had an awful time trying
to get from the west coast
without any money. On top
of that there were no buses,
trains or anything headed
back east. It's a great big
complex, anything can hap-
pen to you.
The veterans on the bus
used to take care of each
other; now nobody takes care
of anybody, they just leave
when they want to.
I'm writing this letter for
the next guy, because I didn't
know they left people over
there until they let me.

Everyone should
support Obama
Editor:
My letter that was pub-
lished on Nov. 7 is very
unimportant at this point in
time. I was not aware of your
policy regarding the printing
of political letters two weeks
prior to an election.
I am an American first
above any political party and
since the election is over, I
am now supporting my
President Elect Barack
Obama.
President Elect Barack
Obama will become the 44th
president of the United States
on Jan. 20, 2009, is not the
Democrat President Elect, he
is the American President
Elect and as such everyone
that considers themselves an
American needs to support


this new president of our
great country.
Now is the time to demon-
strate what good Americans
we all are and put all of our
loyalist sentiments away.
Congratulations, President
Elect Barack Obama!

Electronics

still selling
Continued from page 1A
According to Jim Johnson,
a clerk at the Lake Placid
Radio Shack at 60 Tower
Road, GPS units are what's
most popular, but there is
hope for the Jitterbug Phone
as well.
"We are selling quite a few
of the GPS units," said
Johnson.
"They range in price from
$150-$300 depending the fea-
tures, but it seems that's
what's moving. We also
received the Jitterbug Phone,
and we have high hopes for
that."
The Jitterbug markets itself
as an easy to use cellular
phone with features that make
it simple for seniors to navi-
gate.
The folks at Circuit City,
who because of the corporate
affiliations wanted to remain
anonymous, claimed that folks
were looking at several items,
but high-definition TVs
seemed to be moving a bit,
mostly in anticipation of the
2009 digital TV transition for
the country.
And the Sebring store is one
of those that will remain open
even though Circuit City filed
under Chapter 11 of the bank-
ruptcy code and is closing 155
of its 700 stores.
According to Becky Rhodes
at Badcock Home Furnishings
and More in'Avon Park, the
movers this year are the
portable DVD players, which
are on sale for $99
"The portable DVD players
are on sale and moving well,
but we are also seeing a lot of
the HD TVs go out the door
even though they range from
$499 to $3,000," Rhodes said.
So, even though the rest of
the consumer products are
slumping a bit, it still looks to
be a black Christmas for local
- -ectronics dealers.


News-Sun Sunday, November 16, 2008

Stephanie Rivera of Avon Park shops Saturday afternoon at the new Happy Owl location in
downtown Sebring. Rivera is.a kindergarten teacher at Wauchula Elementary School and
says she frequently purchases items at the Happy Owl to make learning fun in her class-
room.

Local stores hoping to weather the season


Continued from page 1A
Most retailers when contacted refused to
speak in specifics, including corporate offices.
But a few local managers and owners accented
the positive.
Wal-Mart, for example, expects a good sea-
son, Sherry Smith, co-manager at the new
Avon Park super store, said. Already the
Christmas village decorations have sold out,
and PlayStation games, especially Rock Band
and Guitar Hero, are expected to be big sellers,
as are laptop computers. "Christmas brings out
the best and families want to get (gifts) for
their kids," she said. "Our blitz on Black
Friday will bring in lower priced items."
Kay Pigman and her daughter Suzette
Rhoades, owners of the Happy Owl, an educa-
tional toy store, are as small and independent
as Wal-Mart is big and corporate.
But they too have high hopes. As of Nov. 1
they have relocated from US 27 to 227 N.
Ridgewood Drive, just up the block from the
Children's Museum.
Rhoades said their special selection of toys,
ames, art and party supplies as well as home-
fhrK" S w U M aw* S '-'


town location should combine to see them
through. "Parents won't have to travel to
Orlando or Tampa to find quality toys and
games," she said.
A spot check of pawn shops revealed prob-
lems for them as well.
Andy Olsen who owns and operates Central
Pawn at 714 US 27 in-Lake Placid, said his
business off by half, the worst it's ever been.
"Everybody is coming in bringing stuff," he
said, "but nobody is buying. I'm full. I mean
with 50 chain saws, how many more can I
buy? I just hope the economy turns around."
Unfortunately, the National Retail
Federation expects the first two quarters of
2009 to be especially tough. It reports most
large chains are delaying, or cancelling, new
stores, have postponed any remodeling and are
cutting back upon their inventories and unnec-
essary costs.
eCommerce predicts a further drag on phys-
ical stores will come from an increase in inter-
net shopping share, with about 49 percent of
gift shopping done online versus 44 percent in
the real world this Christmas.

Students taking part

in annual Smokeout

advertising in each Florida
county. He compared that to
his anti-smoking budget of
$100,000, which is funded
from the tobacco settlement
back in the late 1990s.
Fortunately, the Cancer
Society has quality informa-
tion available in many
forms, including pamphlets
and Web sites.
Here in Highlands
County, the health depart-
ment also has an active and
energized team of individu-
als who are dead set on
helping people cut back on
the deadly habit. Mostly
they hope to persuade those
who don't smoke to never
start.
This is one reason Donna
Stayton and Andy
Centonzio, who work with
Carlton, are engaged with
the students at Sebring and
Avon Park High School and
hope to extend their pres-
ence to Lake Placid High
School as well.
Centonzio heads the
youth targeted program
SWAT (Students Working
Against Tobacco). Monday,
the Sebring High School
members will wear identical
T-shirts, carry informational
posters and march down to
the historic Circle to draw
attention to the dangers of
smoking and the benefits in
quitting.
Thursday, the day of the
smoke out itself, Sebring
and Avon Park SWAT stu-
dents will remain silent dur-
ing the lunch period at
school. This is to symbolize
all the people who have died
of smoking related diseases
and can no longer speak for
themselves.
In fact, Carlton said,
tobacco-related illnesses are
the top cause of all deaths,
and smoking is the leading
.., '


cause of preventable death,
while second hand smoke is
the third leading cause of
preventable death.
Approximately 28.8 mil-
lion packs of cigarettes are
bought in Florida every
year.
An estimated 46 million
American adults smoke.
In 2006, 13.3 percent of
middle school students
claimed use, as did 28.1 per-
cent of high school students.
During an intense anti-
smoking advertising cam-
paign from 1998 to 2004,
youth smoking dropped by
half. A cutback in that fund-
ing later saw the numbers
rise again, but new money
means Carlton, Stayton and
Centonzio have re-invigor-
ated the Highlands County
anti-smoking campaign.
Among their programs, in
addition to SWAT, are quar-
terly tobacco classes, each
lasting six weeks, to help
adults quit and an evening
class designed for youth.
The two most important
factors in quitting success,
fully, Stayton said, is to be
ready to quit and to have a
support system in place.
It is also helpful to have a
quit plan in place, and alter-
native actions ready to help
when the withdrawal symp-
.toms occur for example a
breathing or physical exer-
cise plan, or someone to
call.
There are a number of
helpful Web sites and tele-
phone numbers which fol-
1 o w
tobaccofreeflorida.org;
www.tobaccofreehighlands.
org; www.FLQuitline.com;
and 1-877-U Can Now(l-
877-822-6669). Carlton and
his team can be reached at
382-7252.

warned, would not all be from
the children, but also from the
parents.
"There will be some of you
who will say you'll never do it
again, but you'll be back," he
said, telling of enduring
friendships that are formed
among the children and the
adults during livestock proj-
ects.
Michael Bickman, a SHS
junior and one of the youth
helping with the clinic, helped
a group of about 20 kids
understand the right way to
hold rabbit and how to show
it for e judges. Helped by
Megan owles and Alexis
Pontius, th three fielded
questions from how to trim
toenails and how to properly
brush a rabbit.
Bickman has shown live-
stock for the past s ven years.
This year, he is sho ing rab-
bits, chickens and swine.
Which is easier? In hi opin-
ion, its the rabbit, buK only
because that is the anima he is
most knowledgeable of. The


hardest is the swine, admitted-
ly because he knows so little
about the animal.
He told his charges that
when showing an animal to do
so with confidence. "If you
look like you don't know what
you're doing, the judges will
really think you don't know
what you're doing. Don't be
afraid of them," he said.
To gain confidence,
Bickman said a student has to
study the *animal he or she is
showing. "You need to know
everything you can about your
specific animal. Have your
friends quiz you. Smile, have
fun and enjoy what you're
doing," he advises.
Sorrell Fields, another ag
teacher at Sebring High and
herself a livestock judge, led
the swine clinic. She too
stressed the importance of
knowing the animals.
"You not only need to know
how to show it, but how to
answer the questions from the
judges. For us (as a judge), the
only way to break a tie is with
questions," she said.

Kaszubowski, Debra
Williams, Belinda Decker,

said that Germaine did not
offer them anything of value,
directly or indirectly, for their
support in the election.
After reading the FDLE'
investigative report, Steve
Houchin, assistant state's
attorney and supervisor of


Highlands and Hardee
Counties, had very little to add
to the discussion and deter-
mined there was no basis to
file any charges.
As a result of that recom-
mendation, the FDLE to also
closed its investigation with
no charges filed.

Golden Corral opens

doors to veterans Nov. 17


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID -On
Nov. 17. every Golden
Corral restaurant across the
country will be offering a
free "Thank You" dinner
buffet with choice of bever-
age to any person who has
ever served in the U.S. mili-
tary (including the National
Guard and Reserves).
The restaurant manage-
ment does not require iden-
tification or uniforms. All
that is required is that the
military guests identify
themselves either to the
greeter or at the register
when they come through the
line.
Each military guest
should receive a "Military
Guest" sticker for quick
identification to your staff.
As a company, Golden
Corral wants to show its
support for the men and
women who have served, or


continue to serve, in the
United States Military.
Golden Corral restaurant
teams and their guests join
together in the fundraising
efforts with the Disabled
American Veterans organi-
zation in each community. I
n 2007, Golden Corral
guests raised more than
$647,000 for the DAV. The
DAV reports that monies
raised helped to purchase
transportation vehicles, pro-
vided gas money for trans-
porting veterans to local
hospitals, provided funds
for building handicap ramps
at local DAV Chapter facili-
ties and assisted veterans
with monetary problems
regarding housing and food.
Last year Golden Corral
in Lake Placid fed 549 vet-
erans and active duty (about
$5,490). It received around
$1,000 in donations.

Scrapbooking close to home


Scrap Paper Scissors

expands operation
By DONALD RIDGEWAY
donald.ridgeway@newssun :com
LAKE PLACID In a slumping world
economy, one area of industry has passed
the test of financial limits. In 2007 alone,
the scrapbooking industry made over $1.2
billion. For many scrapbooking patrons, it is
a way to escape the realities of work, kids
and life itself for just a few hours.
Scrap Paper Scissors in Lake Placid has
opened a new store location on Interlake
Boulevard. The new store has expanded to
twice the size of the previous store with
much more selection to choose from.
Store owner Lisa Baldwin opened her
previous store on July 31 and has since
moved her location three doors down so she
could expand the store and give the resi-
dents of Lake Placid a greater. opportunity


to proceed with their scrapbooking needs.
"This is a need. There is nothing like this
store in Lake Placid and a matter of fact in
Highlands County altogether. There isn't
really a store around that offers craft class-
es," Baldwin said.
Baldwin did some research before diving
into her own bit of the American Dream. "I
went around and talked to people and peo-
ple would tell me that is a serious need for
the area. Since opening the store people
have told me that I beat them to opening
it," she said.
Scrap Paper Scissors offers the top-of-
the-line accessories for a person's scrap-
booking needs. The store is the only busi-
ness in the county that offers acrylic stamp-
ing supplies along with a full line of Tyler
Candles, which are soy candles that burn
longer and cleaner and the scents aren't
overwhelming.

Controlled burns scheduled near Lake Placid


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Southwest Florida Water
Management District will be
concluding "controlled, pre-
scribed burns" during the
remaining days of November
and December on the Jack
Creek property in Highlands
County.
The Jack Creek property is
in the Leisure Lakes area,
which is approximately one
mile west of U.S. 27, three
miles south of State Road 66
and six miles northwest of
Lake Placid. There is the


potential to burn more than
150 acres of land in small,
manageable units.
The scheduled, managed
burs are a part of routine
maintenance of lands man-
aged by the district.
According to District Land
Manager Kevin W. Love,
burns are conducted to mimic
natural fire cycles under a
controlled situation. The
object is to avoid uncon-
trolled wildfires and enhance
the area's natural conditions
by maintaining the ecological
and wildlife habitat values.


Prescribed burns are only
conducted when weather con-
ditions allow the objectives to
be met while minimizing
impacts to the public.
Every effort will be made
to ensure that smoke will not
affect homes or highways.
However, vehicle operators
should exercise caution in
case smoke does lead to
reduced visibility on the
area's roads or highways.
For more information, call
the district at (352) 796-7211
or (800) 423-1476, ext. 4465.


Farm Bureau celebrates Farm-City Week


Special to the News-Sun
Local farm leaders are
preparing for Farm-City Week
2008. Agriculture is one of
Florida's largest industries, an
industry not often understood
by Florida's growing urban
population. Farm-City Week
focuses on promoting better
understanding between farm
and city residents. This year's
observance extends from Nov.
21-27.
Highlands County Farm
Bureau will be sending
proclamations to city coun-
cils, county commissioners
and school board, the bureau
gave out Farm City Activity
coloring books to third-
graders at Ag Venture.
Various restaurants will allow
placements to recognize the
importance of the connection
and partnership that exists


between rural farmers and
urban residents.
This will be the 53rd annu-
al observance of Farm-City
Week. More than 16,000 com-
munities participate in the
United States and Canada. A
Presidential Proclamation and
a joint Congressional
Resolution have called for
Farm-City Week observances
each year since the inception
of the event. Farm-City Week
has won the Freedom
Foundation's Distinguished
Service Award and the Silver
Anvil Award from the Public
Relations Society of America.
The Farm Bureau believes
that events and activities of
Farm-City Week will create a
greater awareness of the types
and sizes of farms in the area.
If farm residents can under-
stand urban growth and city


residents can understand the
concerns of agriculture, there
will be a greater chance of the
two working together to solve
common problems such as
environmental and govern-
mental issues.
Here in Highlands County,
agricultural businesses
include caladiums, citrus, cat-
tle, dairy, blueberries, horti-
culture, vegetable, sod/turf,
melons and strawberries.
The Farm Bureau repre-
sents agricultural interests in
Highlands County. Its mission
is to implement policies that
are developed by members
and provide programs that
will improve economic well-
being and quality of life for

Scrapbooking store expands in LP


Continued from page 9A
plies, the store is also a dis-
tributor for everything that
company Cricut carries.
Cricut is a die-cutting
machine that cuts almost any
patter imaginable. To
improve her store even more,.
Baldwin became a distributor
of the Cuttle Bug company
that does embossing.
When looking around the
store it seems that Baldwin
has a little of everything
from scrapbooking adhesives,
to paper shapes, to decorative
paper along with an assort-
ment of ribbon. "I want to
provide people with what
they need to get done with
what they are working on.
We try to carry an assortment
:of items," Baldwin said.
_ Besides providing the


largest assortment of scrap-
booking products in the
county, Scrap Paper Scissors
also offers instructional
classes.
Twice a month Baldwin
offers an open crop night,
which allows anyone inter-
ested to get together to work
on whatever scrapbooking
project they have. The open
crop night allows participants
to use all tools that are on
hand for projects. The event
is held from 6-10 p.m. on the
first and third Friday of each
month.
Along with the open crop
night, Baldwin is offering
Interactive classes once a
month on the Cricut
machines. "This allows peo-
ple to decide if they want to
purchase a machine and for


others that own one, it allows
them to get better at using
it," she said.
Besides having open crop
night, Baldwin allows for
customers to come in any-
time during business hours
and work for free using sup-
plies on hand.
Each Tuesday evening at
5:30 p.m., Thursday morning
at 10:30 a.m., and every
other Saturday morning at
10:30 a.m., Baldwin holds
90-minute classes that cover
different craft techniques or
craft ideas. The cost of the
class ranges between $10 and
$25, depending on the proj-
ect.
The store is at 285 E.
Interlake Blvd. in Lake
Placid. The phone number is
465-3250.

Veterans documents safe at regional office in St. Petersburg


By MARY MARGARET STAIK
Special to the News-Sun
The Inspector General for
the Department of Veteran
Affairs recently initiated an
investigation into the discov-
ery of more than 10 Veterans'
documents, which were in the
shredder room in bins desig-
nated for shredding in
October. The regional offices
involved in the original dis-
covery include St. Petersburg,
Detroit, St. Louis, and Waco,
Texas.
Veteran Affairs ordered
each of the regional offices to
cease any document shred-
ding while the VA officials
and the Office of Inspector
General determine how wide-
spread the problem was.
A statement from Kenneth
A. Thie, director of VFW
National Service Office in St.
Petersburg, allows a collec-
tive sigh of relief for all veter-
ans with claims at the region-
al office.
"For the record, I have been
attending several meetings
with the VA. Although
Columbia, S.C. and St. Louis,
Regional Offices have some
serious problems, there have
not been any original docu-
ments found in the shred


Sebring VA

Primary Care

Clinic saluted

for service

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING On Nov. 11,
2004, the Sebring Veterans
Administration Primary Care
Clinic was officially opened
in Sebring.
Since that time, thousands
of local area veterans of serv-
ice ranging from World War
II, Korea, Vietnam and the
present war on terrorism have
passed through the clinic's
doors. With the present war in
Afghanistan, Iraq and other
areas of the world, veterans of
today's conflicts are receiving
primary care and counseling
here in the Sebring area.
To recognize the dedicated
VA employees for their serv-
ice, members of the local
chapter of the Military
Officers Association of
America presented the staff of
the Sebring Clinic with a
birthday cake noting the clin-
ic's fourth birthday.
"We felt that on this
Veteran's Day, recognition
and thanks should go to the
VA employees for the out-
standing job they do year-
round in their service to us,


boxes at St. Petersburg," Thie
said.
"Of all the 'to be shredded'
documents reviewed here,
none were original docu-
ments. There were only eight
documents found in the shred
bins at St. Petersburg, and
were found to be duplicate
copies of personal informa-
tion, such as a marriage cer-
tificate and death certificates.
The Office of Inspector
General officials indicated
these should not be shredded,
but rather returned to the vet-
eran or survivor as dupli-
cates."
Those employees found to
be involved in shredding of
documents in other facilities
in the other localities will be
prosecuted, according to Thie.
On Oct. 23, VA told VFW
that nearly 490 documents
had been recovered from its
57 regional offices. Sixty per-
cent of the documents recov-
ered were found in shredder
bins in Columbia, St. Louis
and Cleveland. The VA is still
checking to see if some of
those documents were dupli-
cates already present in
claims files.
The VFW is working with


VA to ensure that veterans
with missing records are not
adversely effected by this
problem.
If the veteran continues to
be, concerned over this issue
it is suggested that the veteran
submit all claims and evi-
dence for the claims through
the County Veteran Services
Office, 7205 S. George Blvd.
Duplicates of all documents
submitted to the regional
office are kept on file.
Further, the veteran should
keep copies of all claims and
evidence they submit directly
to VA. The veteran should
also notice the date the docu-
ments were submitted to the
VA. If the veteran has not
heard anything, or received
any correspondence from the
VA within 45 days of filing a
claim or evidence to a claim,
the veteran should contact the
Veteran Services Officer who
is assisting their claim. The
VA should acknowledge all
claims within 30 days of
receipt.
Sometimes a veteran wants
to continue to file the claims
and evidence without the aid
of a county Veteran Service
officer. The veteran should
take great care that each page

Members of the local Military Officers Association of
America chapter presented the Sebring Veterans
Administration primary care clinic with a birthday cake for
the employees of the clinic. There for the presentation are
retired Army Air Force Captain Lou Brough (standing),
MOAA Chapter 2nd vice-president who officially presented
the cake to the clinic, along with Lon Pallone (seated from

is submitted with the name
and claim number or social
security number at the top
right of each sheet of paper
submitted. Staple the papers
together to ensure the entire
packet is received intact at the
designated official's office.


The veteran or surviving
family member can call the
regional office to check on the
status of the claim on file at
the toll free number, 1-800-
827-1000. There are four
recorded prompts. Listen
carefully to each prompt. If


done properly, the veteran
will have an opportunity to
speak to a claims representa-
tive, rather than a recorded
message. Due to the over-
whelming number of con-
cerned veterans, there may be
a delay.


Helms to speak to


MOAA Saturday


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Although most
Military Officers of America
Association families were
concerned with the recent
elections and their effect on
them, there is that other layer
of government that also
affects them and it is right
here at home.
Rick Helms, Highlands
County deputy administrator,
has been asked to give an
update on county government
policies and future plans.
A 1972 graduate of Avon
Park High School, Helms
continued his education and
received a master's degree
from Webber International
College in Finance in 1989.
He joined the Highlands
County clerk's office and
later worked in the Office of
Management and Budget in
all levels. In 2006, he was
appointed as assistant county
administrator.


The luncheon meeting will
be held at the Military Sea
Services Museum at 11:30
a.m. Saturday. It will be a
buffet luncheon and the cost
is $15 per person.
Even though Helms will be
speaking from his viewpoint
concerning Highlands County
government, his remarks will
apply to all Florida county
governments in some
respects.
It is requested that reserva-
tions be made by calling one
of the following MOAA
members: Captain Lou
Brough at 655-2344; Jim
Christman at 382-3679 or
June Felt or (863) 638-1225.
Final nominations for the
2009 chapter officers will be
requested prior to the voting
for the state of officers.
All reservations must be
called in no- later than
Wednesday.

M Help! One word with a

big punch


One small word.
But it packs a punch.
Once when my hus-
band was still a postal
carrier, he thought he
heard a cry of despair.
He listened closely
and then distinctly
heard, "Help."
Looking back a few
houses to where he
had delivered the
mail, he saw the lady
who had fallen.


He quickly back tracked and
got appropriate help.
A cry for help. That hap-
pened to me recently.
We'd just returned from a
three-week trip out west. It had
been a fabulous time and now
we were in the throws of get-
ting back in the swing of things.
It seemed while we were gone
much had come up to fill our
calendar all of which would
require a lot of preparation and
creativity on my part.
One morning as I thought of
it all, I felt particularly over-
whelmed. I wrote it out in my
journal detailing the many
things requiring my attention.
As I tried to word these
thoughts into a prayer, I gave
up and just wrote, "Help!"
And I meant it with all of my
heart.
That morning, my husband,
Ken, and I took a walk for exer-
cise. As we put one foot in front
of the other, I mentally walked
through my concerns. After a
while, I shared my thoughts
with Ken. At that point, I tried
to concentrate on the moment,
the beautiful morning and our
walk. Then something incredi-
ble happened.
Within moments, one-word,
doable solutions trickled into
my mind and spirit. They were
perfect answers to each of my
concerns. Creative ideas sprung
to life. And I felt calm and
peace enter my soul. There was
no question that God was
answering my heartfelt cry for
help.
In the Bible, we see many
people cry to God for help. He

meets their needs in
various ways. Two
favorite Scriptures in
S Jeremiah come to
mind. In Jeremiah 29:
11 13, NIV, God
Says, "For I know the
S nl.j,.j plans I have for
Pause And you...plans to pros-
per you and not to
Consider harm you, plans to
Jan Merop give you hope and a
future. Then you will


call upon me and come and
pray to me and I will listen to
you. You will seek me and find
me when you seek me with all
your heart."
And then he says in Jeremiah
33:3, "Call to me and I will
answer you and tell you great
and unsearchable things you do
not know."
Thanksgiving is a few days
away. We have so much to be
thankful for even in these
tough economic times. Be sure
to give thanks.
But remember God under-
stands even when a heartfelt,
trusting, "Help!" is all that we
can say. Selah

The Florida Ranchlands Environmental Services Project


On Oct. 29, staff
from the Highlands
Soil and Water
Conservation District
joined about 60 peo-
ple from various
agencies for a tour of
three ranches with
Florida Ranchlands
Environmental
Services Project
(FRESP) water man-
agement projects.
FRESP is a collab-
oration between eight

ranchers, environmental
groups, state and federal
agencies and researchers to
design a program that will pay
ranchers to provide docu-
mented environmental servic-
es of water retention and
phosphorus load reduction in
order to improve water deliv-
ery and quality to Lake
Okeechobee and the coastal
estuaries.
This model project is
designed to analyze the feasi-
bility of paying ranchers to
retain water on their land for
the purpose of storage and or
treatment.
Launched in October 2005
and supported with over $6


mi on111111 11 UII UIaig,
FRESP is in its third
year of implementa-
tion.
The public will
benefit when addi-
. tional water manage-
ment services are
provided in the areas
of regional water
From storage and water
he treatment facilities.
shed And ranchers, who
face low profit mar-
urgess gins and fluctuations
in the price of beef, will be
provided with another source
of income, creating a finan-
cial incentive for land to
remain in ranching rather than
be converted to more inten-
sive agriculture and urban
development land uses that
will further aggravate the
water problems of the lake
and increase habitat losses.
Some of the many benefits
that FRESP will offer include:
Providing as much as a
third to half of the estimated 1
million acre feet of water
retention needed north of the
lake.
Helping with water qual-
ity of the lake by capturing


-;Il;nn in faindina


and holding phosphorus on
the ranches.
Providing ranchers who
volunteer to participate and
document the services they
provide, with a specified
source of income and con-
tributing to the economic
profitability of their ranch.
The eight partners in the
project are located in Glades,
Highlands and Okeechobee
counties. In addition, the
agencies involved are World
Wildlife Fund, Florida
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services,
South Florida Water
Management District, Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection, United States
Department of Agriculture,
Natural Resources
Conservation Service and
researchers from the
University of Florida and the
MacArthur Agro-ecology
Research Center.
The funding for the design
and field testing phases of
FRESP is being provided by
USDA and NRCS through a
Conservation Innovation
Grant, the SFWMD, FDACS,
the U.S. Environmental


Protection Agency 319
Grant and the W.K. Kellogg
Foundation.
In the past three years,
FRESP has accomplished the
completed design and permit-
ting of eight ranch water man-
agement projects. These proj-
ects include rehydrating
drained wetlands, raising the
height of the water table in
the ranch soil profile and
drainage network, and pump-
ing water from a nearby canal
through existing ranch wet-
lands and flowing back into
the canal.
Monitoring equipment has
been installed at the ranches
to field test different methods
of measuring the environmen-
tal services that are being pro-
vided by the projects and pro-
gram design regarding prices
for services, payment
amounts, working 'with other
agencies to reduce costs of
program administration, have
all been addressed through the
pilot projects.
It is very encouraging to
see all these different agen-
cies and ranchers working
toward a common goal.
Holding and filtering our pre-


ed help in taking care of this
precious natural resource.

of area ranches with other partners in the FRESP Oct. 29.


cious water on their ranches
will benefit everyone. It
would seem to be a win-win
situation.
The ranchers receive some
much needed economic assis-
tance; the citizens have the
knowledge that more water is
being cleaned and retained
and the governmental agen-
cies will get some much need-















Aries (March 21-April 20) Aries,
don't pass up an opportunity to lend a
helping hand to someone who needs it.
Not only will you save the day, you'll
feel pretty good about yourself.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) A few
confrontations leave you reeling, Taurus.
Taking the high road certainly expends
more energy, but that's just what you
have to do this week; set a good example.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) Others
don't know how to read you this week,
Gemini. You're flip-flopping on the
things you say and changing your posi-
tion too often. It's no wonder others are
confused.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Taking a
laissez faire attitude this week will not
get the work done, Cancer. It's better if
you start changing your tune and gear up
for some grunt labor.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Leo, it will
take more than some puffed up bravado
to get others to take you seriously. While
it may bruise your ego, you'll realize that
some sweet-talking is a better way.


Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Virgo, it's
hard to have a support system when you
aren't honest with others. Giving your
carefully crafted side of the story could
alienate others more than win them over.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Rest, rest,
rest. Put all other things on hold and set
your sights on some R &R, Libra. All of
your responsibilities will simmer quite
nicely on the back burner to be tended to
later.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Scorpio,
for a tough cookie, you've been doing
your share of sulking in the shadows.
This week you should dust yourself off
and get back into the spotlight.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -
Sagittarius, retrace your steps and you'll
uncover something you passed up easily
before. Lessons can always be learned no
matter how old you are or your position


News-Sun Sunday, November 16, 2008


in life.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -
Capricorn, matters of frivolity get
eclipsed by a matter that is of some
importance. While you may pout for a
few days, due to the change in events,
you'll get over it.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) -
Aquarius, you've voiced your opinion;
now it's time to let the chips fall where
they may. Expect the worst, but hope for
the best, especially regarding those you
love.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) When it
seems like the world is on your shoul-
ders, Pisces, open your mouth and seek
some help. Few will refuse the request.

Special to the News-Sun
LAKE WALES It's beginning to look a
lot like Christmas at Bok Tower Gardens
where Santa's helpers are busy transforming
the 20 room 1930s Pinewood Estate into a
magical wonderland. A favorite family tradi-
tion for the holidays, the Christmas at
Pinewood holiday home tour will be open
Nov. 28 through Jan. 4.
Sponsored by AT&T Real Yellow Pages,
Progress Energy and Winter Haven Hospital,
this year's theme is "Once Upon a Time... A

stories to life. Room designs will include
"The Night Before Christmas," "Cinderella,"
"Hansel and Gretel," "Snow White," "Alice
in Wonderland," "Goldilocks and the Three
Bears," "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Little
Red Riding Hood," "Aladdin," and
Tchaikovsky's fairytale ballet, "The
Nutcracker."
Visitors will enter through "Candy Land"
where sculptures of eight life-sized 19th cen-
tury American soldiers will be on display for
the first time in a public setting. The whim-
sical soldiers play musical instruments and
were handmade of copper by renowned
architect, sculptor and artist Kenneth
Treister, who calls the group "The Electric
Candy Stripped Red, White and Blue
Marching Band."
Nearly 200 volunteer "angels" help deco-
rate rooms, drive shuttles and serve as room
hosts. An estimated 10,000 visitors are antic-

certs include the holiday home tour and a
champagne reception before the perform-
ance.

Fossil hunter to speak at SFCC


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Renowned
Florida paleontologist Mark
Renz will speak to the
Kissimmee Valley
Archaeological and
Historical Conservancy at 7
p.ni: Thursday, Nov. 20 in
Building G, Room 101,
South Florida Community
College. The public is wel-
come.
Renz is a native Floridian
and author of several books
about old bones including
"Fossiling in Florida"
(University Press of Florida)
and "Dessert Sharks" and
"Megalodon: Hunting the
Hunter" (PaleoPress.net).
At the meeting, Renz will
present the PowerPoint pro-


gram, "Dessert Sharks,"
which focuses on an area
200 miles south of Lima,
Peru, at an elevation of
2,100 feet above sea level.
The area is known for its
fossils of whales, dolphins,
and seals eroding on the
desert floor. Most of these
fossils are so well preserved
that a 25-foot whale jaw is
still perfectly intact.
Through an unusual
searching method, Renz
came face to face with a 10-
million-year-old mako
shark.
Throughout his program,
Renz answers the questions:
Why are the fossils buried
here? What can they teach us
- not only about marine life


but about ourselves? He will
also share the valuable life
lessons he learned while
studying this region of Peru.
Renz will attempt to iden-
tify fossils brought to the
meeting. For the sake of
time, each person shouTd
limit their fossils to tWoo or
three pieces.
KVAHC is planning a fos-
sil expedition with Renz in
the near future.
Archaeologist David Butler
will be at the Blueberry
archaeological site in Lake
Placid on Friday and
Saturday, Nov. 21-22. For
more information, call Anne
Reynolds at 465-3637 or

Red-bellied woodpecker a common and welcome sight in Highlands


Photo by Archbold Biological Station
The red-bellied woodpecker is one of the most common woodpeckers
sighted in Highlands County.


Welcome to our roost!
There are certain birds that
will always make our day as
we encounter their presence
during our daily routines.
Whether it is their song,
such as our resident mock-
ingbird, or the majestic
amble of the sandhill crane
walking the fairways of our
golf course, or the sudden
arrival of the red-bellied
woodpecker at our front yard
bird feeder, scattering all the
sparrows who believe they
"own" the feeder, it is always
a fun moment and it helps
brighten the day.
The red-bellied woodpeck-
er (Melanerpes carolinus) is
one of our most common
woodpeckers here in
Highlands County and proba-
bly most recognized because
of the bright red color on its
forehead, the crown and at
the nape of the neck.
Because of this coloration,
many people make the mis-
take of calling it a "red-head-


ed woodpeck- Birds A
er," but that is
quite a different Wild
bird. There is a Hank and
slight reddish
coloring at the
belly of our subject and that
is the reason behind the
name. The male is as
described above, the female
is exactly like her mate but
lacks the red on the forehead.
The birds are from 8.5 to 10
inches in length and have
alternating black and white
bars on the back.
Nesting is from April to
June, and both male and
female will work industrious-
ly to excavate a hole in a
dead tree or a living one, or
in a decayed stub of palmet-
tos.
One of our bird boxes
always attracts red-bellied
woodpeckers and an interest-
ing routine goes on some-
times for days as the male
woodpecker investigates the
box, going in and out, climb-


Ln
T
Ru


d Other ing all around
it, then sitting
things on the roof
th Kowalski calling and
calling. Finally,
the female
arrives and also examines the
box inside and out then
mating may take place or she
may fly away, only to be
"called back" by the male.
Eventually, nature takes its
course and four to six white,
glossy eggs are laid and by
the end of May the first
young to be hatched may be
seen climbing to high branch-
es of a nearby tree.
Our subject birds subsist
on a variety of seeds and
nuts as well as insects such
as ants, grasshoppers and
beetle grubs and of course,
they come to our feeders and
suet. They may be heard any
time of the day, calling
"tshow, tshow, tshow,"
repeated over and over again,
in loud, harsh tones.
Other names for this bird


include zebra woodpecker,
cham-chack, guinea sapsuck-
er, orange sapsucker and lad-
derback. According to the
Archbold-Audubon
Christmas Bird Count, the
five-year average sighting
stands at 122.
Until next time, we wish
you great birding adventures
and please share your unusu-
al bird sightings with us. We
look forward to hearing from
you and will include your
birding experiences with our
readers.

Ruth and Hank live in Lake
Placid, have old, deep roots in the
Audubon Society. They are gradu-
ates of the Dr Reed Bowman
Bird Study Course, given at
South Florida Community
College. Ruth is the original
Editor of the HCAS newsletter
Sightings. Hank is an

HLT production of 'Beauty and

the Beast' tries to capture magic


SEBRING The produc-
tion of "Beauty and the
Beast" at the Highlands
Little Theatre is sumptuous-
ly mounted and costumed.
Beauty and the Beast is one
of the oldest and most endur-
ing fairy tales. Its moral is
simple and available to all:
Treat someone else badly
and your comeuppance will
surely follow.
In this Disney version of
the tale, The Beast is trans-
formed from a haughty,
handsome prince because he
is unnecessarily cruel to a
witch masquerading as a
hag. He will be redeemed
when he is able to love and a
woman gives her love to
him.
Gaston, on the other hand,
a non-too-clever village
bully, bungles his redemp-
tion and another fate awaits
him. In the midst of this is a
pretty bibliophilic girl who
is the object of both men's
interest and a clutch of
chuckleheaded villagers
eager to sing, dance and be
blindly influenced by who-
ever talks to them last.
The fundamental problem
with this production has
nothing to do with the cast or
the production crew.
Presumably, they all
offered their best. The
problem is that fairy tales
do not fare well when
humans portray them.

HLT Review

Don Brusha


Fairy tales were recited in
the oral tradition before the
printing' press made them
available. As a told tale they
could maintain the illusion
of magic, a fairy tale
requirement. Disney discov-
ered that relating them in
animation preserved that
magical quality as well.
However, personifying the
tale on a stage strips the
magic away despite Thor
Knutson's valiant efforts in
lighting and special effects
to preserve it.
If there was a magical
quality to this rendition, it
would have to be in the per-
formances of the household
items that were caught in the
witch's spell and rendered
half human. Lumiere (the
lamp) played by Adam
Meredith, Cogsworth ( the
clock) played by Art
Harriman. Mrs Potts (a
teapot) played by Patty
Young, Madame de la
Grande Bouche (a vanity)
played by Ellen Lemos and
Babette (a feather duster)


played by Vanessa
Richardson. All contributed
ably to .the suspension of
belief and enjoyment forthis
viewer. Laura Wade was a
fetching Belle and exhibited
a nice theatrical voice. The
remainder of the cast ably
abetted the night's produc-
tion.
The director, Kristin
Taylor, unable to spark
magic in the production, did
the next best thing and made
all the ensemble pieces
extremely appealing and
entertaining.
Taylor remarked pre-cur-
tain that "Beauty and the
Beast" was extremely expen-
sive to mount. Elaborate
stage settings ~iad rented
costumes no doubt con-
tributed heavily to that
expense. Shouldn't the HLT
management rein in large
production expenditures in
these straightened financial
times? Relying on the assets
of the talented casts to draw
away .the attention of the
audiences from simpler sets
may allow the management
to stop the tawdry practice of
hawking trinkets and raffle
tickets to the pre-curtain
audience.

Blue Streaks hang on, Green Dragons go to

and short-handed Red Devils game but


Streaks end on a


high note


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING A little early
razzle-dazzle and some late
grunt work proved to be just
enough as the Blue Streaks
held off Port Charlotte to
close the season with a 27-24
win.
"We told these guys, there
are two games you'll always
remember," head coach Jared
Hamlin said. "The Avon Park
game and the last game."
After getting a fond memo-
ry with the win over the Red
Devils last week, Sebring
came out with a bang as they
sought to do the same against
the Pirates.
Devin Clarke
brought the opening
kickoff back to mid-
field and four plays
later was hauling in a Pt. C
41-yard Matt Grubb
pass for the opening
score.
Port Charlotte came
right back, however, to take
what would be its' only lead
of the game on a seven-play,
80-yard drive to go up 7-6.
But the Streaks were back
at it with Grubb connecting
with Clarke on a 14zyard
reception before he again
found Clarke on a screen.
After taking the pass,
though, Clarke looked down-
field to see a wide open J.C.
Howard for a 48-yard, dou-


ble-pass touchdown.
Grubb then found Howard
for the two-point conversion
and a 14-7 lead.
The lead was extended on
the first play. of the second
quarter as Clarke picked off a
pass and returned it 55 yards
to make it 20-7.
Then came a 13-play Pirate
drive that looked like it might
bite a big chunk into the lead.
But with the ball inside the
Sebring ten, the Blue Streak
defense shoved Port Charlotte
back to where they had to set-
tle for a 30-yard field goal for
a 20-10 margin at the half.
The second half began with
the Pirates looking-to
bring establish themselves,
mixing in the short
Pass and some bruis-
S ing running on a 65-
harlotte yard drive that cut the
lead to 20-17.
Sebring couldn't
Advance too far on its'
next series, but a
Caleb McGee punt set them
up well.
Downed at the Port
Charlotte six, the Streak
defense stiffened, forcing a
three-and-out.
Clarke then made, a nifty.
return to the 16 before Daniel
Burnett pounded it down to
the three from the Sebring
power formation.

A bittersweet farewell to


what might
The Chicago papers have
been replete with reports,
columns, reviews and looks
back.
Blogs, message boards
and rants relating to the
Cubs have filled up across
the Internet ranging from
the rational, sentimental to
insanely delusional.
I know, because I've
been reading them, scour-
ing for more information as
I too was somewhat startled
when the Chicago National
League Baseball Club made
a seemingly minor trade
with the Florida Marlins.
In the deal, the Marlins
received minor-league
pitcher Jose Ceda while
sending relief pitcher Kevin
Gregg to the Cubs.
What makes this trade a
lead-in to such an uproar of
sentiment and emotion is
that it signaled the end of
Kerry Wood's tenure on the
North Side.
As soon as I read it come
over the wires, the initial
trade proposal, I mentioned
it aloud that this might
mean Wood was gone.
After all, Kerry is a free-
agent to be, and coming off
a pretty successful year, his
first, as a full-time closer.
A closer with the num-
bers he put up this year,
with the reputation he has
as a fierce competitor with
flame-throwing ability will
surely put him in relatively
high demand.
And still being a rela-
tively young man, turning
32 midway through next
season, perhaps now is the
fime for him to cash in big-
time a relative notion
considering that any player
who's lasted 10 years in the
major leagues should
already be set for genera-
tions to come.
The Cubs, knowing this,


have been











And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
and knowing they have a
lot of other issues to
address, which a huge deal
with Wood could inhibit,
decided he was not a priori-
ty at the potential cost.
I understand that, and as
'a lifelong fan that has seen
favorite players traded
away or let go, maybe I'm
a little callous to the whole
thing.
And while I do genuinely
like Wood, admire his heart
and wish him nothing but
the best I find a lot of the
fan reaction a little over-
board.
Some suggesting it's
insane for the Cubs to let
him go because A) he had
such a good year, B) he's
the face of the Cubs, and/or
C) because they owe him
for all he has given them.
I can't argue that he had
a very good season, but the
response to that is one that
pretty much covers the
other unsound reasons.
How many good, full
seasons has he had?
In his 10 years as a
member of the team, he has
made 12 visits to the dis-
abled list for various elbow,
shoulder, arm and blister
issues some requiring
surgeries, some not.
He tantalized us with
flashes of brilliance, over-

Lake Placid Heartbreak


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun sportswriter
LAKE PLACID The
Lake Placid coaching staff
has spent the entire year
emphasizing to their players
the importance of playing
with emotion.
Friday night, as nine
Green Dragon seniors
donned their green Lemon
and white jersey for q
the final time, emo- 3A
tions began to fill
them. Lake
Those emotions 3
started to be emitted
to the underclassman
like waves of energy from
the sun.
That emotion carried onto
the field as they put together
one of the best defensive
games of the year and con-
trolled nearly the entire
game, but fell to Lemon Bay


34-31 in double overtime.
Lake Placid was holding
onto a 24-3 lead'heading into
the final nine minutes of the
game.
Then the Lake Placid mis-
cues began to mount and the
ever-so-crucial momentum
had swung in the way of
Lemon Bay.
Bay "This is a big-time
heartbreaker for us.
Every one of those
lacid kids played their
hearts out. We played
with more emotion
and intensity than we
did all year," head
coach Jason Holden said.
"For the most part we took
care of our assignments but
in the end turnovers killed
us."
Throughout the course of
the game the Green Dragon
defense played with a deep


sense of passion holding
Lemon Bay to eight three-
and-outs.
Both defenses were strong
early as the first quarter
nearly went scoreless.
That was until Green
Dragon Caleb Jones showed
he was the fastest person in
Lake Placid as he sprinted
around the left side of the
line leaving everyone in his
dust for a 60-yard score.
Lake Placid reached into
its bag of tricks and ran a
fake extra point that saw
Zack Campbell take the ball
in for the two-point conver-
sion to give the Dragons an
8-0 lead with 1:06 to go in
the opening quarter.
On the ensuing kickoff a
Lemon Bay player attempted
to catch the ball and it

Continued from 1D
With the Pirates all geared
up for another bull-rush run-
ning play, Grubb dropped
back and found Michael
Hankerson in the corner of the
end zone to make it 27-17 as
the third quarter ended.
Port Charlotte made things
interesting again as they start-
ed driving and got to the
Sebring 34.
On second-and-eight, it
looked like the Streaks would
drop them for a big loss as the
Pirate quarterback got flushed
left, then right.
But as the defensive backs
came up in pursuit, a Port
Charlotte receiver was left all
alone and suddenly the poten-
tial sack became a touchdown
and a narrow 27-24 lead.
Sebring's next drive stalled
as Grubb was sacked twice,
but again McGee made a vital
contribution with his leg.
The punt took a Blue Streak
bounce and an alert Kevin
Wellborn got to it just in time
to down it at the Pirate one-
foot line.
Whereas the defense stiff-
ened earlier, this time it
exploded, stuffing Port
Charlotte at the point of
attack and forcing a punt from
deep in the end zone.
With the ball on the Pirate
30, the Streaks just needed a
first down to ensure being

bounced off his chest and
went out of bounds at the
seven yard line.
Three plays later the
defense tackled the ball carri-
er in the end zone for a safety,
giving the Dragons a 10-0
advantage with just over 10
minutes to go in the first half.
Following a faulty series on
offense, the Green Dragon
defense stepped up again as
Zack Campbell saw a pass
from his safety position and
made a great break on the
football, picking it off at the
44-yard line and taking it the
distance for the touchdown.
Steven Guelff added the
extra point to move the Green
Dragon lead to 17-0.
"Zack had a great read on
the ball and jumped the route.
He played tremendously for
us. He had two picks on
defense and made countless
big hits," said Holden.
The score would remain the
same until a fumble gave
Lemon Bay the ball at the
Green Dragon 24-yard line
late in the third.
The Green Dragon defense
stepped up .to the challenge,
not allowing a first down.
But on fourth down, Galvin
booted the ball through the
uprights for a 37-yard field
goal with 4:57 left in the
quarter.
On the ensuing drive Lake
Placid went into their power I
formation and Holden bar-
reled his way through the line
three times to pick up a first
down.
Campbell then hit brother
Jacob for a five-yard pick ip
before Holden ripped off a
49-yard run that took the ball
down to the one-yard line.
Holden soon plunged for-
ward for the tousl~down with
37.9 seconds to go i1the third
quarter.
Lemon Bay then put
together a nine-play drive that
covered 83 yards to cut the
Dragon lead to 24-10.
Tragedy struck the Dragons
on the.next offensive posses-
sion as things started to
unravel.

But when they faced a
fourth-and-four, all bets were
off.
"That was no sure thing,"
Hamlin said. "If we'd have
run it and gotten stopped, that
could have been trouble."
But again they caught Port
Charlotte off guard as Grubb
dropped back and found
McGee on a crossing route for
a 14-yard gain to the ten.
From there, the time melted


away and a tough season
ended with Sebring's second
straight win.
"I'm so proud of these
guys," Hamlin said. "They're
fighters and they showed it
tonight. We played well in all
facets of the game. There
were a few breakdowns, but
they overcame them."
"They've been maturing all
season long," he continued.
"And they took care of busi-
ness these last two games."

Caleb Jones fights through this Lemon Bay tackler for a gain.
Jones would total 131 yards on 15 carries for the Dragons
Friday night.


Campbell tossed a pass that
was intercepted 'by Jake
Berwind and returned for a
Touchdown to inch the Manta
Rays even closer.
Galvin added the PAT to
make the score 24-17 with
5:59 to go in the game.
As the Dragons got the ball
back, all they needed to do
was put together a long drive
without turning the ball over.
But on the first play,
Holden had the ball stripped
and three plays later, Harkeli
barreled in from the four-yard
line to tie the game at 24-24.
"In the fourth quarter we
never lost confidence. We
were feeling really good
about things," Holden said.
"They had one big play on
offense but. the big difference
makers were the turnovers."
In the first overtime Lake
Placid got a one yard run from
Holden and on second down
Holden had his face mask
grabbed, giving them half the
distance to the goal.
Jones then plunged in over
the left side and Guelff's PAT


pushed the score to 31-24.
Lemon Bay responded as
Bannan kept the ball on a
bootleg and ran just inside the
pylon for the score.
Galvin added the PAT to
force a second extra frame.
In the second overtime, the
Dragons got to the one, but a
mishandled hand-off prevent-
ed a score.
On the first play for Lemon
Bay, Galvin kicked the win-
ning field goal.
The Dragons owned the
running game as they finished
with 215 yards on the ground.
Jones had 131 rushing
yards on 15 carries and two
scores while Holden had 83
yards on 13 carries and a
touchdown.
"The line really opened up
some big holes up front. They
played hard and never quit,"
said Jones.
With the end of the season,
the Dragons say goodbye to
nine seniors but look to next
season as they return eight
starters on offense and six on
defense.

The 8-2 Palmetto team is
coming off of last year's 9-3
season that ended with a loss
in the second round of the 3A
playoffs, but they already
secured a playoff berth before
traveling to Avon Park, so
they had nothing to prove.
Avon Park ran two suc-
cessful fake punts in the first
quarter, including one from
its own 16-yard line.
And the Red Devils were
successful in keeping the
ball away from the lackluster
Tiger offense, but the
Palmetto defense showed
they could take up the slack.
Tiger Brian Ackerman
picked up a fumble and
returned it 28 yards for a
touchdown to give the Tigers
a 7-0 lead with 1:36 to play
in the first quarter.
He was followed quickly
by teammate Kedrick Johnson
who recovered a fumble on
Avon Park's next possession,
which set up Marva Carley's
seven-yard touchdown run.
Carley rushed for 34 yards
and Xziver Williams had 23.
The Tigers then made it
.21-0 when Ty Scott returned
an interception 42 yards for
Palmetto's third touchdown
in just under three minutes.
At that point the Tigers
had run only seven offensive
plays.
A heavy rain began in the
first half, and prevented the
Tigers from working on their
running game while the two
defensive touchdowns kept the
Palmetto offense on the bench
for most of the first half.
The Tigers ran just 14
plays before half-time, yet
led 24-0, thanks to the
defense and a 35-yard field
goal by Brandon Tarpley late
in the second quarter.
Vantrez Yarn ended anoth-
er Avon Park drive with an
interception as the Tigers
forced five turnovers.
Palmetto's final points
came on a 27-yard touchdown
pass from Ethan Gilbert to
Damian Copeland midway
through the third quarter.
On the other hand, the
scrappy Red Devils wanted
to leave their mark by show-
ing they could play with
anyone.

stopped the Tigers drive just
shy of the goal line,

appeared to be headed on a
98-yard, ground-pounding
touchdown drive in the wan-
ing minutes of their season
before Scott snagged an
interception at the Palmetto
10-yard line with 1:30 to
play in the game.
"We really just had to play
for pride and ful, I care
about these guys, and hope
they become successful. But
we had to show that as a
team we stepped up, I think
we did that, but it was tough
seeing my seniors on the
bench," said Bonjokian.
Conspicuously absent was
senior starting quarterback
Albert Moses.
"Moses is out sick," said
Bonjokian before the game.
"And we could not get Virgil
(Cooper) cleared to play.
Missing those two leaves a
big hole offensively and
defensively to fill."
Cooper injured his right
knee in last week's match-up
against Sebring.
Starting at quarterback
was freshman J.D. Hardy,
who led the JV team all year,
and found out late in the day
that he was taking the reigns


of the Devil offense.
Hardy completed seven of
his 12 passing attempts for a
total of 54 yards.
"We found out at the last
minute that both quarter-
backs were not going to
make it tonight, so I went to
.J.D. in 5th period and gave
him a game ball. It shows
what kind of character he
has .because he immediately
showed that he was excited
to get the chance. He is a
competitor, that's for sure,"
said Bonjokian.
One bright spot on the
Avon Park offense was start-
ing running back. Teddy
Allen.
"Teddy has the talent to be
as good as he wants to be,
and he showed folks tonight
that he can be good. He has
struggled a bit with the -
turnovers, and I wanted him
to run tonight and get the
turnovers out of his head,"
said Bonjokian.
And run he did.
Allen carried the ball 30
times for a respectable total
of 131 yards rushing and an
average of just over 4.4
yards per carry.
