APPD mourns

Christmas Day

loss of an officer

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK - The passing of Sgt.
Marc Wilbur has left a pair
of big shoes to fill at the
Avon Park Police
Department.
"It's very emotional for
everybody but our members
here at the police depart-
ment hold our heads high in
Wilbur going out there and doing
our jobs," said APPD Commander Michael
J. Rowan. "He will be sorely missed."
Wilbur died Christmas
morning while on Jutu - .t',
He is the first APPD
officer to die wh Ie on. -i,-'
duty, according : .I '
Rowan.
Wilbur was in
the Winn-Dixie pa:rk-._
ing lot in his patrol car
with a trainee when he fellel
unconscious," Rowan said.
The training officer called EMS and they
responded and attempted to revive him with
cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
He was pronounced dead at Florida
Hospital Heartland Medical Center at 9
a.m.
He had been with the APPD since
November 1996 and was promoted to ser-
geant in May 2007.
Wilbur most recently worked with the
patrol division where he supervised a squad
of patrol officers and the field training of
newly hired officers.
"Wilbur's unwavering dedication to the
community coupled with his ... passion for
Law Enforcement have left a legacy for
other members of the law enforcement pro-
fession to follow," said APPD Chief
Matthew P. Doughney in a press release.
-Born in Massachusetts, Wilbur served as
a law enforcement officer for 20 years,
starting in his home state then serving in
Frostproof and as a deputy sheriff with the
Seminole County Sheriff's Office before
making his home in Sebring.
As a K-9 handler, Wilbur received
numerous awards, including top dog in a
training seminar in Volusia County while
competing against 50 other agencies.
While his dog was retired in 2007 he still
served as the training coordinator in charge
of the APPD K-9 teams and was a state cer-

mixed fireworks for New Year's celebrations.



With a bang

'Diva ofj Highlands County Fireworks'
ready to help ring in the new year


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK - For 17 years,
Debi Ragsdale, owner and operator
of Debi's Fireworks, has helped
Highlands County residents ring in
the new year with a bang.
Called "The Diva of Highlands
County Fireworks" by local resi-
dents, Ragsdale has seen a lot of
changes over the years.
"I love this job, and I have got-
ten to see a lot of kids grow up
over the years. I now have kids
who were not allowed to buy fire-
works without their parents bring-
ing their babies. It is especially
nice to see the repeat customers
every year. This is the only time I
will see some of those folks, and


we spend a lot of time talking and
catching up," Ragsdale said.
"Most of the product has shifted
from local manufacturers to over-
seas, especially the Chinese. Now
days, most of the product comes
from China," Ragsdale said.
A 30-year veteran of the indus-
try, Ragsdale began her pyrotech-
nic career as a kid. Her neighbors
in Broward County were fireworks
salesmen and her first job was ped-
dling their wares every Fourth of
July.
"Most kids had a lemonade
stand, I got to sell firecrackers. I
grew up selling fireworks, and I've
had a blast over the years. It's fun,

Ex-mayor

also calls

for CRAs

to be

disbanded
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@ newssun.com
AVON PARK - Avon
Park's ex-mayor Tom
Macklin encouraged the city
council at its last meeting to
disband the Community
Development Agency and
return the tax money to the
general fund.
"We need to take the hand-
cuffs off the city's budget and
allow those tax dollars to be
used city wide," Macklin said
during the meeting.
CRAs are funded largely
by a Tax Increment Fund,
which allows 95 percent of
tax increases in a designated
area to be used for specific
projects in that district.
Florida Statutes specifical-
ly state that the dollars col-
lected % within a CRA district
cannot be spent outside its
boundaries.
During the public partici-
pation part of the city's agen-
da, Macklin pointed out that
money was going to be tight
in the near future and that the
CRAs may have served their
purpose. ..
"I comniend Nou for cling
in the Florida Redeelopment
Agency to help out in your
meeting earlier this evening.
but one of the things I would
like to encourage you to con-
sider as an option is perhaps a
complete disbandment of the
Community Redevelopment
Agency' in' its entirety,"
Macklin stated for the record.
"I understand that there are
a lot of success stories about
CRAs out there, but I would
like to make you all mindful
of the fact that the rules
changed on Jan. 29th of this
year when the citizens of
Florida amended the constitu-
tion which effectively\ dou-

Habitat for Humanity


adapting
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - . Habitat for
Humanity Highlands County and
Rebuilding Together Highlands
County have long been among .the
most respected and successful agen-
cies in the community.
Under the leadership of
Jane Breylinger, hundreds
of Habitat volunteers
built dozens of sturdy,
wood frame homes on 50-
by-100-foot plots. I.
Paul Devlin's volun- HaB
teers at Rebuilding for Hi
Together have repaired or
improved many existing homes, keep-
ing elderly or disabled people who
could not afford the work, safe.
Now these two groups are merging
in what Devlin says is a logical, "win-
.win" next step.
"This is an efficient merger of two
volunteer organizations whose servic-
es were beginning to overlap. For a


approach

small area like Highlands County it
was wise to join forces and become
more streamlined. The economies of
scale and the talent-sharing potentials
are obvious," Devlin said.
As of the first of the year,
Rebuilding Together assets, including
tools, will be turned over
I to Habitat. In return,
Habitat will take over the
work Rebuilding Together
used to do.
SBut this is far from the
*a only change Habitat is
itat undertaking.
ItalltY� With Breylinger's
departure last summer to
follow her husband pastor Bill
Breylinger to his new posting,
Habitat's board of directors had an
opportunity to rethink the future and
its challenges.
For example, construction costs and
finding sponsors are two significant
problems.
In fact, Breylinger and the board

AP votes

to lend aid

to Hardee

if needed

By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@ newssun.com
AVON PARK - The Avon
Park City Council decided in
a 4-1 vote to continue to
extend fire department's
mutual aid agreement with
Hardee County at its meeting
last Monday.
According to acting Fire
Chief Captain Steve Marquart
the agreement is mostly a
technicality, but was still
good to have.
"Our statewide mutual aid
agreement that requires Avon
Park to respond to any calls
for assistance anyhow, but it
is still good to have these
agreements. This is mostly
just housekeeping,"
Marquart said.
Even though the agreement
with Hardee County in mutu-
al in aspect, Avon Park has
never asked for help.
"In the past 10 years worth
of records that I reviewed, we
have never called on them for
assistance. On the other hand.
we have responded to them
nine times. Four of those nine
times we were canceled in
route. And once we were put
on stand-by," Marquart
replied to questions from
council about how many
times the agreement had been
executed.
"The only changes to this
agreement is the date. This
agreement is opened ended,"
Marquart said.
"We can cancel it at any-
time, but the date was set
without an : expiration.
Because of the state mutual
aid agreement, this is not nec-
essary, but it can be helpful in
applying for grants,"
-Marquairt-added
Although the agreement
cani Be ' nceled w Ithut - --
cause, each agency still has to
notify the other party 90 days
prior to canceling.
Councilman George Hall
showed some concern, and
was the only council member
to vote no on renewing the
agreement.
"Isn't it like 35 miles one
way? That's a long way from
home to be sending our fire
equipment. I do know that we
were there to help on that big
manufacturing fire some time
ago, but I still think that is a
long way to send our guys,"
Hall said.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Our New Year's


resolution to you

As the wonder of Christmas fades
into treasured memories, comes
the hard part: Getting out the
empty boxes and tissue paper as we all
begin the slightly sad task of taking down
lights and packing up ornaments.


This shift from the warmth
and celebration of birth and
hope and salvation, back to
real life problems and respon-
sibilities can only mean one
thing - it's time to make our
New Year's Resolutions.
Resolutions, of course, are
as varied as people.
From losing weight to get-
ting more exercise, from quit-
ting smoking to looking for a
better job, from being nicer to
our parents to making more
time for our children, most of
us will set a goal and for at
least a little while, make real
effort to achieve it.
Here at the News-Sun,
completely separate from our
private aims for self-improve-
ment, we have joined together
with a single resolution - to
continue bringing Highlands
County the most accurate,
timely, and need-to-know
information available, so you,
our readers, may have a
greater understanding and
awareness of the world
around you.
It is our honor to provide
you the facts you need to
make better decisions and be
prepared for the future.
This isn't as easy a goal to
achieve in the 21st century as
it was in the 20th - what
with technological changes
setting the business of infor-


mation gathering and distri-
bution on its ear.
But we view the challenge
as opportunity, and relish the
chance to grow, both in abili-
ty and size.
We are resolved to make,
not just our printed pages, but
our Web site too, as lively and
topical as possible.
We also are resolved to
maintain our commitment to
the community, keeping you
informed of what the many
agencies, organizations,
clubs, schools, fraternities,
sororities and governmental
bodies have going on, why
and when.
We hope you had a a fun-
filled, spiritually meaningful
Christmas. We hope too, that
you are rested and ready for a
new year.
There is little doubt we
face interesting times that
will require all of us to be
patient, brave, generous and
engaged.
Our new year's resolution
at the News-Sun is to be with
you in the struggle ahead, a
supportive, necessary part of
your lives, and one that can
even, on occasion, make you
laugh.
May we all have good for-
tune, and the wisdom to make
the most of it.

It seems odd to be writing
my end of year column while
there's still about a week left
to the year. Such is the nature
of deadlines.
I have to start this column
off with the election of
Barack Obama as President
of the United States. No, I
didn't vote for him. But even
I acknowledge that for a
country that 50 years ago
was still forcing African-
Americans to drink at sepa-
rate water fountains this was
an historic vote. Will people
who are bent on seeing noth-
ing good in this country
acknowledge we've made
progress in this area? One
would hope so.
This was the year conser-
vatives felt left out in the
cold by both major political
parties. The only bright spot
for us was Sarah Palin, who
was proven to be a conserva-
tive by the way the media
savaged her.
I mentioned last year that I
thought illegal immigration
would still be a big issue in
2008. Given we've heard
almost nothing about it this
year, I think I've flunked as a
psychic.
Another thing I didn't pre-
dict was the financial crisis,
which gave us the spectacle
of big businesses marching
up to Congress and begging
for help, making the word
"bailout" the new buzzword
of the decade.

Fortunately for a lot of us,
gas prices dropped to reason-
able levels after climbing up
into the stratosphere. There's
even talk of gas dropping
down to under $1 a gallon in
2009, though cynics like me
will only believe it when we
see it.
Sadly, we'll probably be
hearing the name Illinois
Governor Rod Blagojevich a
lot in 2009, because even
though there's a lot of evi-
dence proving he's not exact-
ly free from corruption he's
decided to try to outlast his
accusers. More reasons to be
cynical about politics, though.
this might at least be mildly
entertaining.
Two names I hope drop
into obscurity in 2009,
though I wouldn't bet on it:
William Ayers and the Rev.
Jeremiah Wright.
Person who offers a com-
pelling argument for karma:
OJ Simpson, who will be
doing jail time for his badly
thought out escapade in
Vegas last year. Were the
jurors swayed by his acquit-
tal for murder all those years
ago? I don't know. And
there's a lot of people out
there who don't care.

hit in the Ware household as
well as a lot of other places.
Heath Ledger's Joker was
impressive and award wor-
thy, which makes his prema-
ture death all the more tragic.
In other entertainment
news, I discovered Stephanie
Meyers' Twilight series, as
did a bunch of movie goers.
It's a new and interesting
take on the vampire story,
and the writer in me wants to
rip the books apart to find
out how Meyers wove such
an engaging tale.
In 2008, we sadly said
goodbye to (among others)
Charlton Heston, who would
forever be the picture of
Moses to some; William F.
Buckley and Jesse Helms,
conservative voices now
silenced; Michael Crichton, a
great writer who told us of
dinosaur DNA and kept us on
the edge of our seats with his
thrillers; Tony Snow and Tim
Russert, who were classy
newsmen; and Bobby
Fischer, chess prodigy that
adulthood was not kind to.
In the Ware household, my-
oldest son John got engaged
to be married (yes, there will
be a column about the wed-
ding) and James left the nest
as a period of my life ended.
A new one now begins. More
about that in 2009.

TODAY'S LETTER


r Holiday trash pick-
up not so reliable
Editor:
I would like to write about
the wonderful service and
kind words from the folks
who pick up our trash, name-
ly, Reliable Sanitation. I
would like to, but such is not
the case.
There was an article in
Wednesday's News-Sun about
the revised trash pickup
schedule due to Christmas
Day falling on Thursday.
People with scheduled
Thursday pickup would be
serviced on Wednesday. Well,
guess what! I put my trash
out at 6:45a.m. on Wednesday
and it is still sitting there as I
write.
I called the county to com-
plain and was given the
phone number of Reliable (a
misnomer if ever there was
one) Sanitation. I called them
and was assured that their
people had been down my
street. The woman I spoke to
was very nice when she, in
essence, called me a liar. The
fellow answering the tele-
S phone at the county said that
he couldn't help me because
he was only the switchboard
person. Nice to feel our coun-
ty people are helping us. I
wonder if he would be con-
sidered "non-essential person-
nel" since he was of little or
I f no help.
I mentioned all of-this to a
neighbor and he, too, had the
, - same "pleasant" experience
with both Reliable and the
County. He mentioned that a
man named Daryl (sp?) spoke
to him rather rudely and that
he, Daryl, called him a liar
S- just like last year when peo-
ple called to say the trash
wasn't picked up when, in
fact, it was. My neighbor
mentioned that he took pic-
tures of the trash that wasn't
* picked up, including that of
Judge Shinholser. Oooops!!!
'S "The judge lives out there?"
s According to my neighbor,
Daryl called him back about
an hour later and offered an
apology saying that he went
out himself to verify what
was said and he saw that the
trash had, in fact, not been
picked up along our street.
I just thought I'd write and
get this off my chest. It burns
me up when we pay for a
service which we do not get
. - and then have to deal with
less than room temperature
IQ "public servants" when we
S complain.

APPD officer dies on duty Christmas morning

tified trainer, holding certifi-
cation courses for the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, Polk County and the
city of North Port K-9 teams.
"A variety of different
agencies came down and
trained," Rowan said.
Wilbur was very active in
the community with the K-9
program, exposing the dogs
and their handlers to children
and citizens around the coun-
ty.
"He did a lot of extra things
for the community at the
whim of a phone call. Putting
K-9 programs together for
schools, youth groups;


demonstrations for everyone
to see," Rowan said. "Marc
was very dedicated to that and
spent a lot of off duty hours
putting things together."
Rowan was hired by the
APPD three months before
Wilbur. When Rowan was
promoted to commander,
Wilbur made sergeant.
"Marc and I were very
close. We both grew in this
agency and we both were pro-
moted through the ranks
together," Rowan said. "We
worked on the same squad for
a number of years and had
built up a tight relationship."
During an interview Friday,
Rowan described one of the


many things Wilbur brought
to the department.
"Marc was an inspiration to
everyone here," he said. "I
don't care what kind of day
you had, Marc could get you
to laugh."
Funeral services will be
held at noon Wednesday at
Union Congregational Church
in Avon Park. (See complete
funeral arrangements on page
5A.)
Memorial contributions can
be made to the Trust Fund set
up for Adam Wilbur, Wilbur's
7-year-old son. Contact the
Avon Park Police Department
at 453-6622 for more infor-
mation.


'Fireworks diva' helps ring in new year


Continued from 1A
and I love it," Ragsdale said.
For 13 years, Ragsdale set
up her tent in the parking lot
of The Tower Restaurant in
Lake Placid proper, now she
has moved out to a spot next
to McClure's Fruit Market
and just south of Josephine
Creek at 2202 U.S. 27 South.
"The new owners decided
they did not want us to set up
our tent about four years ago,
but that was really a good
move for us. Now that we are
outside the city we can carry
most of the Class C
Fireworks that everyone asks
for every year," Ragsdale
said.
Open Dec. 26-31, Ragsdale
anticipates she will sell
between 200 and 300 cases
of fireworks this year despite
the'lagging economy.
"This time of year is not as
busy as the Fourth, but we
will move a semi-truck load
of this stuff. Most of the traf-
fic comes in the evening, just


after work. We do have some
folks who wait till the last
minute, and they don't
always get the best selection
by then, but most people
come by early so that they
can shop and chat a bit,"
Ragsdale said.
With product ranging in
price from 50 cents to $200,
Ragsdale always carries a
wide selection of fireworks,
and she is always looking for
new and exciting stuff to
acquire for her customers.
"This year we have a new
package called "The Double
Trouble." It is mortar based,
and has 36 shots with 48
explosions," an excited
Ragsdale said.
"This is a neat job," said
Alvin Pintor, one of
Ragsdale's helpers.
"There are chickens, and
pandas, and tanks; everything
you can think of, and the best
thing is to watch the kids'
faces light up when they
shop. I like to see that,"
Pintor said.


This year, Ragsdale is
lending a helping hand under
the big orange and white tent
to one of the local churches
with her sales.
"We have a drawing for
Union Congregation's
Celebrate Recovery Program.
We helped to raise over $700
last year for the youth pro-
gram there, and I hope we
can do the same this year,"
Ragsdale said.
In addition to the fun asso-
ciated with fireworks,
Ragsdale also encourages a
couple of precautions that
everyone should heed:
Always read and follow the
directions carefully; only
ignite fireworks outside in a
well-cleared area; have a
responsible adult supervise
all fireworks activities; light
fireworks one item at a time;
and have a bucket of water or
hose available to dispose of
used fireworks.


Macin calls to disband CRAs
M a -, to- , .....

bled the homestead exemp-
tion thus reducing the amount
of tax revenue that comes to
the city. Renee (Green) is
probably updated weekly if
not more frequently than that
of tax revenue shortfalls. The
tax increments go back into
the areas that are geographi-
cally designated, but this lit-
erally handcuffs the dollars
for city wide use," Macklin
said.
"I would like people to
understand that I am not
opposed to CRAs. When I
was on the council I floated
the idea that we develop the
Southside CRA..., but the
rules changed on Jan. 29th. I
knor this is not very palat-
able to talk about it at this
time, and it might be a little
early as you go into this
upcoming budget workshop,
but I would like you to keep it
in the back of your head that
we may need to take the hand-
cuffs off the dollars and use
that money for critical servic-
es that the entire city needs.


"Those are my tax dollars
as well as those in the dis-
trict," Macklin added.
Macklin follows in the
footsteps of Councilman
George Hall who also called
for the possible disbandment
of CRAs in order to solve
some of the current organiza-
tional issues as well as put the
money back into the general
fund.
"I think that during these
economic times the city is
going to need every dollar we
can get, and if we are looking
for tax dollars, we need to
take a close look at the diver-
sity of funneling tax money
through the CRAs," Hall was
quoted as saying in a recent
News-Sun story.
Last year, Avon Park's
CRAs collected a total of
$297,770 with $139,580
diverted from the city's gen-
eral fund.
In addition to the tax dol-
lars from the city's portion,
the three CRA districts also
received over $158,000 of
Highlands County's share of

Habitat adapts its approach


Continued from 1A
was aware that some of the
answers, like building row
houses in communities,
would be unsettling to those
used to the idea of a stand-
alone house with a surround-
ing yard.
It was because Michael
Jacobson had worked
through similar situations
while he was with Habitat
for Humanity in Sarasota
that he was chosen to follow
Breylinger, taking over as
executive director here.
His job is to guide the
organization as it changes its
paradigm.
Jacobson sat down with
the News-Sun the week
before Christmas to discuss
the changes and plans. He
said he considers his work a
ministry.
Habitat was thinking in
terms of a holistic approach,
he said, including family
needs, like access to milk or
day-care, as well as green
space, energy conservation,
and privacy.
Where a community
lacked access to a bank or
groceries, Habitat for the
first time would invest in
building commercial struc-
tures to attract the necessary
businesses.
One way of easing con-
gestion on overcrowded
roads, Jacobson pointed out,
is to ensure needed services
near home.
There is an urban myth,
Jacobson said, that Habitat
home owners are poor, or
unemployed, or work at dead
end jobs.
"Our clients are the for-
gotten of the housing indus-
try," he said. "When our base
is characterized as low-
income, it conjures up ideas
of something different. We
need to demystify the reali-
ties going forward and let
people know what jobs are
being done by low-income
(wage earners).
"We're not talking about
hamburger flippers here.
We're talking about medical


technicians, teacher aides,
pre-school teachers, 911 dis-
patchers, cooks, retail man-
agers, health care and elder-
ly service workers - the
very people we need to sus-
tain our community."
Jacobson said the average
rent in Highlands County is
$750 a month, an amount
that leaves many families
financially strapped.
The average Habitat mort-
gage, on the other hand,
averages about $450 a month
and builds equity. That
means by simply moving
from a rental into its own
home, a family can save
$300 a month and still safe-
guard the future.
That $300, Jacobson said,
could be used to buy more
nutritious food, health insur-
ance, or be put aside in a col-
lege fund, or saved for a dig-
nified retirement. The
important point, he said, was
families would have more
disposable income to pump
into the local economy.
"Our tax revenue has a
declining base, the next like-
ly step is a cut back in serv-
ices and a decline in the
quality of life. We can wait
for trickle down or opt to
kick start the economy in a
holistic fashion," he said.
"It's not just safe, decent,
and affordable housing, but a
solution forward in tough
economic times. Investing in
this (new paradigm of creat-
ing whole communities) is
good common sense.
"Even before I got here
the board had wrestled with
the issue of capacity," he
said. "How do we house
more people?"
Having grown up in
Manhattan, Jacobson is open
to ideas involving higher
density, mixed income and
multiple story housing.
When a grant opportunity
from the Florida Housing
Finance Corpora~ton for $2.5
million becar e.;', .i able,.
Jacobson and 'te i board
moved to take advantage of
it.


The result is the 20-acre
Ridgeview Project - a
proto-type for the work
Habitat hopes to be able to
do. It will be built on a site
on Martin' Luther King Jr.
Boulevard, just north of
Cemetery Road. Habitat will
know in March if the plan
has been approved.
Habitat has tapped into
cutting edge work by con-
cerned architects and
builders.
The new homes are based
on urban designs, like the
townhouses of New York
City or Philadelphia. They
will be built in rows of four
or five units.
What Jacobson wanted
made clear is these units are
not a cheap alternative. They
are designed for family life,
will be well constructed and
attractive. New materials
mean the exterior walls will
be mold, mildew and termite'
proof. The bolted, partially'
pre-fab construction will;
resist winds up to 200 miles
per hour. They will include
solar power, metal roofs and
state-of-the-art insulation.
The driveways and
garages will be at the back of
the homes. The front eleva-
tions will have porches and
landscaping designed to con-
nect people to the neighbor-
hood. There will pedestrian
and bike paths throughout
the community, and pocket
parks and green space, plus
the commercial space along
the road.
Jacobson said he under-
stood that any disruption to
the status quo can be upset-
ting, that giving up the idea
of the old-fashioned single
home was hard to let go.
"But we can't drive into the
future looking in the
rearview mirror," he said,
"we are convinced once peo-
ple see what we see, they
will be convinced too.
"The truth is," he said. "if
.y.e Lontmue tPo..ry'_to: meet
the need one h jq .a.tune,
we ? ll never fill the gap
that grows every day."

Michelle Richardson is a manager at the BP food mart opposite the Fairmont Plaza. She
reports for work between 4:30 and 5 a.m., immediately does paperwork, makes coffee
and fresh sandwiches, and that's all before the store opens at 6. The main rush comes
from opening to about 8 a.m. For example, her store sells an average of 1,800 small
cups of coffee a month. Here she is in the cooler (or vault) stocking energy drinks.

Convenience stores are
the kind of places we tend
to take for granted, until it
is late at night, the baby is

There is a good reason
they are called convenient.
But keeping such a store
open and stocked takes a
great deal more work than
most people suppose.
For one thing, the broad
range of items on sale, cho-
sen specifically to answer
any type of emergency need

means inventory has to be
closely monitored because
there is so much of it.

When deliveries arrive,
they have to work even

A lot of that time shelving
is spent in the beverage

Most convenience stores

Then there is the clean-

Top 10 consumer

complaints for 2008


Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is announcing the
top 10 list of complaints for
calendar year 2008. It's no
surprise that the no sales
solicitation category contin-
ues to rank number one,
however complaints are up
substantially this year.
After dropping by nearly
500 complaints in 2007 to
4223, the Do Not Call law
generated 5006 written
complaints in 2008.
Bronson also says the
department was able to pro-
vide more than $7.6 million
in refunds in the form of
cash, goods and services, $3
.million more than last year.
The department's
Division of Consumer
Services is the clearing-
house for consumer com-
plaints in Florida, regulat-
ing 11 industries and
attempting to mediate prob-
lems with unregulated busi-
nesses. Complaints against
industries that fall in anoth-
er agency's jurisdiction are
forwarded to those agen-
cies. Bronson releases the
top 10 list every year to
ensure consumers know
where the biggest problem
areas lie and can take steps
to protect themselves.
"While I am proud that
we' have been able to pro-
vide more than seven and a
half million dollars in
redress to consumers, the
fact is it is better to avoid
having problems in the first
place," Bronson said. "It is
stressful and time consum-


ing for the public to take
action against a business, so
knowing the pitfalls can
help people make educated
decisions in all aspects of
their daily lives."
There were 37,227 total
complaints filed with the
department in 2008. Do not
call violations usually lead
the way and that trend con-
tinues this year. Consumers
can pay a fee of $10 with a
$5 annual renewal fee to
have their home telephone
numbers placed on the list
and avoid unwanted sales
calls. The fee is used only to
administer the program.
The types of calls that are
exempt from the list can be
found at www.800helpfla.
com/nosales.html.
Travel/vacation plans
continue to rank second
with 3,582 written com-
plaints, an increase of more
than one thousand over
2007. There were 2,542
complaints about telemar-
keters that did not relate to
the Do Not Call list. Fourth
on the list was credit/bank-
ing with 2,471 complaints
and rounding out the top
five is the communications
category with 2,370 com-
plaints.
"Clearly people know
where to call for help and
they are taking full advan-
tage of this service,"
Bronson said. "We do
everything possible to make
the consumer whole and
when necessary, take action
against businesses that vio-
late the rules that are in
place to protect con-

Keeping convenience stores convenient requires a lot of work


Continued from page 9A
precautions to follow, and -
sadly - a law enforcement
component as drive-off
thieves are a constant threat.
That doesn't mean that
clerks or managers are
expected to intervene. In fact,
for safety's sake, policy is
typically just the opposite.
But employees do have to
remain alert and ready to call
for help. Management fol-
lows through by always
pressing charges.
As if that weren't enough,
many convenience stores also
sell sandwiches, hot dogs and
other edibles - meaning
food has to be made fresh
daily.
Did I mention the coffee?
In the morning, the clerks
make pots of it, and keep the
sugar and cream coming.
Finally, in between all
their other constant chores,
clerks and managers have to
ensure the customer gets
quick, efficient service so
they don't have to wait.
Breaking down the line at the
register is one of an employ-
ee's most serious responsibil-
ities - including being sure
the register balances at the
end of the shift.
Now, everyone who works
in a convenience store faces
these challenges. But as any-
one who has been on the road
a lot or shopped in these
stores regularly knows, some
are exceptional, and others
the pits.
Having spent the better
part of a morning at Charlie
Taylor's BP gasoline and
convenience store just north
of Sebring Parkway I can
report it is in a class by
itself.
Not only did I notice right
away it was clean and well
stocked, I noticed something
you don't see every day in a
convenience store.
There are tables, with
flowers on them, and com-
fortable chairs. Instead of
being rushed, customers are
encouraged to sit a spell so

Two members of the Liar's Club practice telling whoppers.
Bob Landis (left) and James Nelson belong to an informal
group of retired gents who get together every morning for
coffee and tall tales at the BP food mart at 3901 U.S. 27 N.


they can sip and smell the
coffee. It has more of the feel
of an old-fashioned country
store than a modern, plastic-
wrapped, run-in-and-leave
kind of place.
According to Paul
Przychocki, manager of retail
sales and development, that
is because of three factors:
The example and standards
Taylor himself sets, the quali-
ty of his employees and the
loyalty of his customer base.
Although, as I discovered,
one has to be careful around
some of Taylor's customers.
Take the Liar's Club, for
example.
The informal club is a
group of retired guys who
gather daily to enjoy coffee
and each other's company.
Bob Landis, Bob Thatcher,
Mel Gollihue, Claude
Williams and James Norman
are regulars. Michael
Crenshaw (who technically
isn't part of the band because
he still has to, well, work) is
an alternate, you might say.
"We never tell the truth,"
Landis said with pride.
"We're on the end of the


shovel. We can really scoop
it, can't we?" he said.
"We're top of the line,"
Norman agreed. " We don't
have enough time in the
morning (to get all the lies
said), we have to come back
in the afternoon."
Gollihue indicated he was
going to have to leave early.
"My wife only gave me so
long this morning," he said.
"Are you hen-pecked?"
Thatcher teased him.
"In the worst way,"
Gollihue replied laughing.
"She's taking me shopping."
Taylor grew up in the
industry. His parents -
retired now - owned a Gulf
gas station back in the 1950s,
just north of the Historic
Circle on Ridgewood Drive.
They grew their business,
becoming gasoline and oil
wholesalers, and built an
office in Avon Park as well
as opening other stations.
Taylor, who grew up in
Sebring, went off to the
University of Florida and
returned to join his folks in
the business. He is the only
petroleum wholesaler in the


county who still operates sta-
tions, of which he now has
five.
It remains a family busi-
ness, with Taylor's wife
Holly playing a significant
role in marketing.
The Taylors base their
business approach on
Christian beliefs and values.
"Charlie is the most honest
man I know," Przychocki
said. "We went to church
together and he came to me
asking if I'd ever thought
about the retail business."
Przychocki, as it happened,
hadn't. He had always
worked in the restaurant
industry instead. But his
background with hospitality
was an essential component
in what Taylor wanted to cre-
ate.
In the meantime, tastes and
products have changed radi-
cally over the years.
Sodas, like Coca-Cola and
Pepsi aren't the big sellers


they once were.
"If you'd told me 10 years
ago I'd be selling a whole
door of water (meaning one
section of the vault is devot-
ed only to different brands of
water), I wouldn't have
believed you," Przychocki
said. "Now water products
take up a door and a half.
"Two or three years ago.
energy drinks hadn't even
been invented, except maybe
Red Bull, now they are
among the biggest sellers in
the store. Out of 14 doors, all
brands of sodas are down to
just two and a half."
Przychocki, as it happens,
doesn't mind change. "If
something doesn't work (or
sell) we'll change it tomor-
row. We're always looking to
improve."
Keeping a convenience
store running smoothly takes
constant work and adjust-
ment. Managers typically
work 50 hour weeks, and


there is always something to
do. Even better, build up a
regular base of customers and
laugh along with them.
Przychocki said, "It's fun
actually. I enjoy what I do."

Riverside Bank takes

part in TLG program


Special to the News-Sun
FORT PIERCE
Riverside Bank will volun-
tarily participate in the
Temporary Liquidity
Guarantee Program (TLG)
created by the Federal
Deposit Insurance
Corporation (FDIC). The
TLG Program was created
to strengthen confidence
and encourage liquidity in
the banking system. It pro-
vides full FDIC insurance
coverage of all noninterest-
bearing deposit transaction
accounts, regardless of the
dollar amount. The full cov-
erage will last through Dec.
31,2009.
"All deposits are FDIC
insured up to the allowable
limits," said Cindy
Robbins, Riverside Bank
president and chief operat-
ing officer. "But, the
Temporary Liquidity
Guarantee Program takes it
a step further by guarantee-
ing the full amount of funds
in noninterest-bearing
deposit transaction
accounts.
"The Temporary
Liquidity Guarantee
Program is optional and not
all banks will be providing
the additional FDIC cover-
age to their customers. We
have decided to participate,
at no additional cost to our
customers, simply because
it's the right thing to do!"
The program's FDIC
insurance coverage is over

Get Noticed
-Advertise. Today!'
"�:'I i1 "i _!


and above the $250,000 in
coverage already provided
to customers. For example,
if a customer has $500,000
in a noninterest-bearing
transaction deposit account
and $250,000 in a certifi-
cate of deposit, the FDIC
would fully insure the entire
$750,000.
Under the program, a
"noninterest-bearing trans-
action deposit account" is
defined as an account at an
FDIC-insured domestic
financial institution, like
Riverside Bank, that does
not accrue or receive inter-
est and the institution does
not require advance notice
of a withdrawal. This
includes accounts at
Riverside Bank such as the
Lifetime Free Checking,
Free Business Checking and
NOW accounts if the inter-
est rate remains at or below
0.50 percent. The program
covers eligible accounts,
regardless of ownership,
including municipal, gov-
ernment deposits and other
public funds.
For details about the
FDIC's Temporary
Liquidity Guarantee
Program, call Riverside
Bank's Customer Care
Center at 800-741-3283.

And, yet, they smile and encour-
age others through their own
courage and faith - and yes, even
S joy. Howy.can,that be? -
S Joy is a condition of the heart --
- - that - even when it grieves - can
never be taken away. It is not
- dependent on circumstances; but,
rather, on a relationship to God.
And, when we worship, God is
.- present in our praises and his pres-
. ence transforms, renews and uplifts.
S Our friends' relationship with
God through the Lord Jesus Christ
enables them to dispense smiles that
touch lives.
Jesus told his disciples that he is
the vine and we are the branches.
He went on to teach them about
e abiding in him. Then he said in
John 15: 9 & 11, NIV, "As the
Father has loved me, so have I
loved you...I have told you this so
that my joy may be in you and that
your joy may be complete."
So let your smile spring from a
well of joy and you will be sure to
touch a life. Selah

one evening ...

Pause And came to the
phone he greet-
Consider ed his Grandma
Jan Merop and Pop-Pop
and then asked
us what we were doing.
"We're talking to you," Pop-Pop
responded.
That answer struck him funny.
First we heard a giggle. Then we
returned the giggles. Full-blown
laughter rose together on both sides
of the line and we wondered if we'd
talk at all.
Oh, it felt good to laugh and
smile - imagining the little face on
the other side doing the same. His
smile lights up my thoughts of him
and his laughter is extraordinarily
contagious.
They say it takes more muscles to
frown than to smile. And, yet, even
at this season of celebration, we
may not always encounter smiling
faces.
Pressures of life tend to crowd
out cheer and take our breath away
- causing us to turn inward produc-

when we look upward and outward
that the smiles are usually forth-
coming.
A smile and some laughter can
brighten the gloomiest day.
And don't be fooled. Sometimes
the happiest face and fullest smile is
a sacrifice of praise to God. Not
everyone who smiles and dispenses
joy has had an easy life.

SWild turkey doesn't make

official status, but it's doing well

There is still room to register for the stained glass class being offered through the
Highlands Art League.

Stained glass class has openings


Special' to the News-Sun
SEBRING - The stained
glass class that is now being
offered at the Highlands Art
League still has openings for
the first session of 2009. If
you ever thought about how a
stained glass piece of art is
created, now is the time to
sign up for this class. This is
a very old art of expression
that has been totally brought
up to date with modem tech-
niques and products.
Betty Francisco, instructor,
has been doing stained glass
since 1992 and she will be
sharing her love of this medi-
um in a series of classes that
meets on Mondays once a


week for five weeks. All sup-
plies and patterns are provid-
ed. However if you have a
favorite theme, the instructor
will be able to work with you
to adapt it to glass.
The class starts on
Monday, Jan. 5 and will run
through Feb. 2 from 8 a.m. to
noon.
This is a fun class that
needs no previous art experi-
ence. The unique process of
coupling glass pieces togeth-
er with copper foil and lead
to form an intricate art piece
or a simple design.
Beginners and advanced
students are welcome. An art
background is helpful but not


necessary, just bring your
enthusiasm and wear closed
shoes.
Classes are held at the
Highlands Art League newly
renovated and redecorated
Visual Arts Center (orange
building) on Lake Jackson
(behind the yellow house) in
Downtown Sebring. The fee
for the class is $99, however
if you are a member of the
Art League it is only $84.
There is also a fee for sup-
plies of $30.
For more information or to
enroll, call the instructor
Betty Francisco at 471-1452,
or Highlands Art League at
385-5312.

Birds and Other
Wild Things
Hank & Ruth Kowalski

Welcome to our roost! You
will have to give Ben
Franklin a lot of credit for
wanting to designate the wild
turkey (Meleagris gallopavo)
the Official National Bird
instead of the bald eagle. For
example: The wild turkey
does not eat carrion - the
cagle does; the wild turkey
does not steal food from oth-
ers, the eagle does and will
even harass ospreys causing
them to drop a caught fish;
the wild turkey is endemic to
North America - the eagle is
not.
All this reminds us about
the effort by the Audubon
Society and other environ-
mental organizations, lobby-
ing to proclaim the Florida
scrub jay the Official State
Bird, as it, is endemic to
Florida. The northern mock-
ing bird has that designation
and happens to be the official
bird of several other states -
just an interesting aside,
which always leaves us disap-
pointed in the National Rifle
Association, which blocked
the change in designation.
There can be no doubt that
the wild turkey is a beautiful
bird. It is large, (males 48
inches, females 36 inches)
more slender than the domes-
tic bird and with the familiar
"gobble" easily imitated by
hunters.
.This bird was almost hunt-
ed to extinction but luckily,
laws were passed and
enforced, restricting hunting
to certain times of the year
with bag limits. It has
rebounded very nicely and
according to our local inform-
ants, the wild turkey is doing
quite well in Highlands

quite well in Highlands County, is a beautiful bird.


County. Folks from all over
the county were happy to call
us and give us their reports.
Especially vocal was Lionel
Lagrow, who lives "out
Kissimmee way," inviting us
to come to his place with our
cameras and get all kinds of
good photos. Dr. Gary
Montsdeoca, who lives near
the Kissimmee River, checked
in by saying the flock of wild
turkeys this year is "very sub-
stantial." As we recall, Doug
Karlson reported awhile back
that the wild turkey popula-
tion near his ranch shows a
healthy increase.
According to the Archbold-
Audubon Lake Placid
SChristmas Bird Count, the
five-year average of wild
turkey is 33. It will be inter-
esting to see what this year's
count will be. If you would
like to participate in this
important study, call Helen
Obenchain at 465-2468, as
she is the coordinator.
The wild turkey breeding
season begins in mid-March
and usually 8-12 eggs are laid
in a shallow hollow, on the
ground, sparsely lined with
nearby vegetation and/or dead
leaves. The preparation of the


nest site and incubation is by
the female and takes 28 days.
The young are tended by the
female alone and they feed
themselves and are brooded
and guarded by adult. Wings
grow rapidly and young can
fly into trees at two weeks
and roost on a branch with
female. Broods remain togeth-
er until winter. Wild turkeys
eat quantities of acorns, wax-
myrtle berries, seeds of horn-
beam and poison ivy and vari-
ous insects. This diet is sup-
plemented by gum seeds,
huckleberries, seeds of the
black gum rush, saw palmetto
seeds and grass.
Please call us at 465-6618
with your unusual bird sight-
ings or observations. We love
hearing from-you. Our e-mail
address is: ruthnnhankwild-
bird@htn.net.

Ruth and Hank live in Lake
Placid and have old, deep roots
in the Audubon Society. They
are graduates of the Dr Reed
Bowman Bird Study Course
given at South Florida
Community College. Ruth is the
original editor of the local
Audubon newsletter Sightings
and Hank is a past president of
the organization.

Oh Christmas Tree says recycle me


Did you know that there are
approximately 30-35 million real
Christmas trees sold in North
America every year? These trees are
a renewable, recyclable resource
and for every real Christmas tree
harvested, up to three seedlings are
planted in its place the following
spring. In addition, there are
500,000 acres in production for
growing Christmas trees and each
acre provides the daily oxygen
requirements of 18 people. Florida-
grown Christmas trees are often
grown in soils that could not sup-
port other crops. The trees help our
environment by absorbing carbon
dioxide and other gases while emit-
ting fresh oxygen.
After the holidays this year, take
into consideration some of these
tips for recycling your tree. Make
sure you remove all the ornaments
and tinsel of course.
* Place the tree in the yard or
garden for use by birds and other
wildlife. The branches provide shel-
ter from strong winds and cold.
Food can be supplied by hanging
fruit slices, seed cakes, or suet bags
on its branches. You can also smear
peanut butter and seeds in pine
cones and hang them in the tree.


News From
The
Watershed
Corine Burgess


* Prune off
the branches and
place the boughs
over perennials as
winter mulch.
* Chip the
tree and use as
mulch around
trees, shrubs or in
flower beds.
+ Chop up the
tree in small
pieces and put it
in your composer
or compost pile.


* .Conservation groups may be
another option. Some hunting and
fishing groups collect trees and use
them to provide habitat for fish and-
wildlife.
+ Recycle or compost your
Christmas tree in your own back-
yard. Toss pine needles under out-
door plants and use the branches to
winterize your garden.
Up to five pounds of trash per
person per day is the estimated
amount of trash that our landfills
are receiving in today's world. If
you do the math over your lifetime,
the amount is staggering. By reduc-
ing the amount of waste we pro-
duce, we can all pitch in and help.


It doesn't really cost anything to
reuse and recycle and it helps the
environment so much.
So this year, recycle that
Christmas tree, but don't stop there.
For your New Year's resolution,
take a day and really look at what
you are throwing out. You will be
surprised at what could be recycled
and reused. Then decide to do
something about it.
Setting up a convenient bin sys-
tem is the best way to start. You can
purchase plastic tubs or even use
wastebaskets or any container that
fits the size of your recyclable.
items. Make sure the bins you are
using are the right size for the items
to be placed in them. For example,
for newspapers and paper make sure
you have a bin that is large enough
to lay the papers flat, allowing for
plenty of room before emptying it.
For composting items, make sure to
have a secure fitting lid so that
odors don't become a problem.
Once you get your bins set up,
delegate a bin to each class of
waste. You can even label them for
the other members of your house-
hold. Many of the items that we
purchase today are in recyclable
containers such as glass, aluminum,

ments, tinsel, garland and lights have been stripped off and put away.


paper, cardboard and plastic. In
addition, you can compost all of
your organic waste and help your
plants out at the same time.
Make 2009 the year you and your
family start to recycle, reuse and
help the environment. It's really not
that difficult, it's cheap and it will
show your children and grandchil-


dren that you care about the planet
and that you care about their future
on it.

Keep your focus

Aries (March 21-April 20) - Aries,
all of your hard work won't go unreward-
ed. Just don't expect an immediate heap-
ing of praise. A respectable venture
comes your way on Monday.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) - While
you are searching for a romantic match,
Taurus, there may be someone close by
who is exactly what you're looking for.
Keep your eyes peeled.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) -
Obstacles are no match for you, Gemini,
especially when you have some help in
your corner. The realization that you can
achieve anything hits hard.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) - Cancer,
family is your focus the entire week.
Don't plan on too many activities outside
of the house. Someone steps forward
who needs a little extra attention.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) - A foul mood
will only carry over to those around you,
Leo. It's best if you keep to yourself until
your disposition brightens a bit. Sunnier
days are ahead.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) - Explore,
explore, explore, Virgo. This is the week


News-Sun * Sunday, December 28,, 2008


on your family this week, Cancer


HOROSCOPE0



to try new things, including new foods,
new roads and new friends. It may be
challenging to break out of your routine.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Libra,
you're growing closer to a friend or fam-
ily member with whom you drifted apart.
The rekindling of the relationship will
benefit both parties greatly.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Scorpio,
indelibility will be your downfall this
week. You can't be right all of the time,
and this week you certainly are off tar-
get. Allow Cancer to set you straight.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Your
ideas are well received by all, save for
one person in particular. You'll just have
to try a little harder with this person,
Sagittarius.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -
Capricorn, nervous energy could get you


into trouble. Channel that energy into
something productive and harmless, like
a little winter cleaning.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) - Take
the time to re-evaluate your financial
portfolio in light of a changing financial
landscape. While you're often giving
advice, now is the time to take some,
Aquarius.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) - Pisces,
it's time to scrub away misperceptions
about someone. Look at things in a new
light and you'll be surprised at what you
see.

2008 ALL-HIGHLANDS COUNTY FOOTBALL TEAM



Grubb passes way to top honor


Sunday, December 28, 2008


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
Less than stellar team results
aren't always indicative of a lack
of individual talent.
Quite the contrary, the
Highlands County high school
gridiron saw plenty of athletic
ability on display this past season.
So much so, that the configura-
tion of the All-Highlands offense
had to be shifted to a three-man
backfield and receiver/tight end
set to accommodate the offensive
skill positions.
Though it was tough to pick out
one player among the many that
had outstanding seasons this year
as the Highlands County Player of
the Year, a choice had to be made.
And with the precedent set by
Tim Tebow, sophomores are eligi-
ble, so the nod went to Sebring's
Matt Grubb, who has two more
years to build on his very impres-
sive inaugural campaign.
While Albert Moses of Avon
Park and Zack Campbell of Lake
Placid had their moments during
the season, the overall body of
work of Grubb stood out as a
bright spot.
"He can make the throws,"
head coach Jared Hamlin said
early in the season. "But what's
most impressive is his poise."
What takes the impressive
poise to a higher level is that
Grubb showed it while leading the
team as just a sophomore.
But of course, the stats are what
take his resume to the top.
' according to MaxPreps.com,
Grubb was 14th in the state with
1,899 passing yards, to go along
with 20 touchdowns, and an 87
quarterback- rt ing ~"- . --.


He wasn't a one-man
show, however, in
Sebring's potent offen-
sive attack.
Running back
Daniel Burnett totaled
1,070 yards on the.:.'
year, according to
MaxPreps, with a
4.84 yard-per-carry
average and nine
touchdowns.
Joining Burnett in -
the All-Highlands 7
backfield are the
"Thunder and
Lightning" Red Devil '
duo of Teddy Allen and
Virgil Cooper.
Allen ran at a 5.25-
yards-per-carry rate. '
churning out 840 yards on
160 carries and five touch-
downs.
Cooper came up big as a scat-
back, rushing for 425 Nards and
four.touchdowns, and coming out
of the backfield for 20 receptions
and 250 yards and another touch-
down.
Co(iniued on page'3C-".


News-Sun file photo
Teddy Allen was the thunder out of the Avon Park backfield, averag-
ing more than 5 yards per carry.

News-Sun * Sunday, December 28, 2008


Continued from page 1C
As for the main receiving
load, Blue Streak Devin
Clarke stood out, getting
past defenses as a deep
threat in totaling 1,121
yards, good for fifth in the
state according to MaxPreps,
on 72 receptions for nine
touchdowns.
And Avon Park's Alonzo
Robertson proved effective
at tight end, combining his
solid blocking with 17 catch-
es for 303 yards and four
touchdowns on the year.
The scoring drives would
be punctuated with the place
kicking of Lake Placid's
Steven Guelff.
Of course, the offensive
skill positions wouldn't have
racked up all that yardage
and done all that scoring
without the heavy lifting of
the guys up front.
The pancake run blocks,
the smash-mouth pass pro-
tection would be provided
by Lake Placid's Zack
Reynolds, Avon Park's Isuel
Guzman and the Blue
Streaks Dewey Sebring,
Edrick Williams and Thomas
Quigg.
Going with a 4-3-4
