A Fair Piece Of Work

Amy Wack spends about two hours a day working with her liv
heifer inside the barn next to her home in Sebring.

Sebring's Amy Wack

animal in every categ


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING It is a typi-
cal January afternoon in
Highlands County.
Going on five o'clock, the
sun already hangs low in the
pale blue sky. Not' quite set-
ting yet, it is turning the
green-browirgrass to gold. '
The sharp edged shadows are
long and cool.
On a side street off of
Sparta Road, the widely
spaced houses are surrounded
by animal pens and out
buildings. Instead of traffic
noise, although U.S. 27 is
only about a mile to the east,
roosters crow, mules bray
and the occasional dog
chimes in his two cents
worth of opinion.
It is a picture postcard set-
ting of a tranquil, laid-back,
rural scene.
Enter Amy Wack.
She fits right into the pic-
ture, moving with confidence
among a variety of animals
that include a cow, a hog, a
rabbit, and half a dozen
chickens.
Two visitors trail along
behind her as she goes about
her chores.
A senior in high school,

Amy Wack says that raising livestock has helped her learn
to be more responsible, she handles her animals regularly
to make sure they are ready to be judged during the fair.


Amy has been active with the
FFA since the sixth grade,
when she agreed to be the
main caregiver to the hog
being raised by her Hill-
Gustat Middle School FFA
chapter.
At the time her family
lived in town so the pig was
kept at the school's barn and
Amy came early and stayed
late to take care of it.
In spite of the long hours
and serious responsibilities
Amy enjoyed raising the pig


so much that it established
the pattern for the rest of her
secondary school experience,
which she organized around
FFA and raising animals.
In addition to a pig a year,
Amy began to raise cows and
then chickens.
Her family strongly sup-
ported her goals, going so far
as to relocate to a more agri-
cultural part of the city so she
could take care of her live-,

DEP re-opens fill


dirt criminal case

Admits to possible violation

of public records statute


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed:baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING The
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) has re-opened the
criminal investigation of
illegal dumping of county
fill dirt at the Howerton
Farm, located at 880 Farm
Road in Sebring,
and is now claiming'
exemptions to spe-
cific public records
because of that
investigation.
In a letter dated
Jan. 9, Tracey
Hartman, senior
attorney with the DEP, stat-
ed "regarding the
'Howerton pit' site, the
agency asserts that infor-
mation contained in the
documents...are exempt
from production pursuant
to section 119.071(2)(c)l.,
Florida Statutes. The
exempt material is part of
an ongoing criminal inves-
tigation of an identifiable
person or group of persons


which has been compiled
by the agency in the course
of conducting a criminal
investigation," said
Hartman.
The letter is part of an
ongoing investigation into
the alleged illegal dump-
ing, disposal of new fill
dirt, and possible usage of
county services to
the tune of
$113,000.
Hartman further
explained the
exemption by say-
ing that the "pur-
lby pose in asserting
the exemption is to
prevent premature disclo-
sure of information that
could impede the investiga-
tion or allow the subject/s
to avoid apprehension or
escape detection."

AP reverses CRA


meeting hiatus


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@ newssun.com
AVON PARK Despite
concerns raised by city
manager Sarah Adelt, the
Avon Park City Council
voted to reverse its decision
to halt all Community
Redevelopment Agency
(CRA) activity at the regu-
lar meeting Monday night
in council chambers.
At the prompting of John
Barben, board chairman of
the Airport CRA Advisory
Board, the council voted 5-
0 to overrule the motion
they passed Dec. 8 to stop
all activity pending more
information about the lack
of public hearings, which
call into question the legiti-
macy of the CRAs..
"We are in the middle of
building an FBO out there,


and I don't want to see the
building put on hold," said
Barben. "We've got other
issues that we are working
on out there. We discuss a
lot of different problems
out there each month, and I
feel we need to keep meet-
ing."
Mayor Sharon Schuler
suggested that the CRA
wait until after a meeting
scheduled on Jan. 26 with
the Florida Redevelopment
Association to determine
the nature of the problem
and a direction was put in
place to correct any prob-
lems. The FRA is an organ-
ization that assists cities
and counties with CRA
issues.
Barben said that if the

HLT plays for laughs with 'Don't Drink the Water'


Woody Allen play set
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING -Setting a comedy
during the Cold War and behind the
Iron Curtain no less, might seem a bit
of a stretch, but "Don't Drink the
Water," an early Woody Allen farce,
is a blend of physical comedy and
political wit that holds up over time.
Take a typical American family -
this one happens to be Jewish and
from Newark, N.J. send them off
on a whirlwind European vacation;
have their plane make an emergency
landing in a country called Vulgaria;
have them mistaken for spies; make
them run to the American Embassy
for help; then watch what happens
when they get stuck there; and won-
der if they will ever escape.
Given the gray of winter and
depressing news reports, the
Highlands Little Theatre's winter
production is just what the doctor
ordered, its director Art Harriman
said.
There are no hidden morals, just


to open Friday night
good, clean fun, and plenty of belly
laughs. "It's a family farce," he said.
The American family caterer
Dad, mahjong playing Mom, and
beautiful daughter Susan have to
deal with the bumbling son of the
ambassador who somehow always
seems to make matters worse, a visit-
ing Sultan with a very short temper
and three belly dancing wives, and
another embassy refugee, a priest
who does magic tricks.
Naturally things get really compli-
cated when official plans for a "spy"
exchange fall through, Susan falls in
love with the -ambassador's son, and
the American dad, Walter Hollander,
insists on speaking his mind.
The humor is part political, part
physical and part silly.
For example, when Hollander is
faced with eating oysters he balks at
the idea "I like my food dead. Not
sick. Not wounded. Dead."
And when Father Drobney tries a'
Houdini-style escape out of a strait-
jacket, poor Marion Hollander, the


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Brenda Hippchen, playing American tourist Marion Hollander, has gotten
impossibly tangled with a magic trick-loving priest, played by Adam
Meredith during the first act of 'Don't Drink the Water.' They are both
trapped in an American embassy behind the Iron Curtain.


American mom, gets all entangled
and they end up wrestling on the
floor.
The play's humor depends on pin-


point timing, and the cast works
extremely well as an ensemble. The

Man charged with stealing


almost $125,000 from pawn shop


News-Sun staff report
SEBRING A Sebring
man was booked into the
Highlands County Jail on
Sunday, charged with steal-
ing nearly $125,000 worth of
cash and merchandise from
the pawn shop he managed.
He reportedly said the theft
was to finance what he
claimed was an addiction to a
lavish lifestyle.
According to HCSO
reports, 29-year-old John
Anthony Hernandez, of 1209
South Canal Blvd., was
arrested Dec. 27 in
Tennessee, a little more than
two months after a warrant
for his arrest had been issued.
The investigation began
when a representative of
Capital Pawn contacted the
Sebring Police Department in
February of last year.
According to reports, the
company had noticed a dif-
ference in profits for the
Sebring location, and the rep-
resentative, Kenneth Egan,
called Hernandez and told
him that an inventory had
been planned.
Egan told the SPD that
Hernandez called in sick the
day of the inventory, which
revealed that the store was
missing "approximately

www.newssun@

$124,458.50 in inventory and
cash," the report, said.
Egan told the SPD that the
inventory showed pawn slips
were being fraudulently pro-
duced and that legitimate
pawns had either missing
property or funds. Egan said
Hernandez
was the per-
son who
processed all
.of the trans-
actions in
question, as
Hernandez evidenced by
the unique
code and password each
employee has to enter to
complete transactions.
Egan also told police that
$2,900 in cash was missing
from the store safe, to which
Hernandez was the only per-
son with a key.
Several vehicles were also
found to be missing, Egan
reported, and all but one were
found at Hernandez's resi-
dence. The one that wasn't
fond wa: sa9781,.Cadillac,
which 'arecordS' check
revealed to be registered to


Hernandez and for sale on
eBay, with Hernandez listed
as the seller. The car belongs
to Capital Pawn.
Hernandez never returned
to work, after 1egra4.e,
audit, Egan' rp J
said he contacted Hernandez,
who offered thie explanation,
"I have an addiction." When
asked to what, Egan said
Hernandez replied it was an
addiction to a lavish
lifestyle, the report said.
Hernandez fled the state
before he could be arrested.
A warrant was issued on Oct.
22 and entered into the
national database. He was
arrested in Bradley County,
Tenn., and charged with first-
degree grand theft of over
$100,000, five counts of
third-degree grand theft in
connection with the missing
automobiles, one count of
dealing in stolen property
and two counts of fraud.
After being returned to
Highlands County and
booked on Sunday'"
Hernandez didn't spend long ,'
in the county jail. According
to records, he was released
on. $41,000 bond just three
hours after he was booked.

News-Sun Wednesday, January 14, 2009


The Bartlesville (Okla.)
Examiner-Enterprise on rep-
resentation of the people:
Most of us have heard the
advice that when we have to
make a financial decision
"right now, the deal will be
gone tomorrow," we should
walk away. Prevailing wis-
dom has always been that
when we are pressured to
hand over our money without
having time to carefully con-
sider the "deal," it's probably
a scam.
And taxpayers are now
finding out just how valid
that old advice really is.
Despite polls showing tax-
payers overwhelmingly
against providing hundreds
of billions of dollars to Wall
Street failures and financial
"geniuses," and teens of bil-
lions more to bail out domes-
tic automakers, Congress and
the White House literally
thumbed their collective
noses at taxpayers. 'They
made the decision, voted and
began handing out the money
so fast they didn't even;.take
time to include accouptabili-
ty requirements of the banks
receiving the money.
After government officials
admitted that the $700 billion
figure to bailout Wall Street"
was just a guess, and that
nobody really knew how
much money it would take,
senators and representatives
voted to throw money at the
problem, because "we have

to do this right now, or the
economy will get even
worse." And these elected
officials were openly admit-
ting that their constituents
opposed the bailout by a
staggering margin.
One Oklahoma congress-
man who voted for the give-
away estimated 90 percent of
his constituent contacts
voiced opposition.
So much for representation
of the people.
Now, after doling out $350
billion of taxpayer money to
organizations like AIG, JP
Morgan Chase, and others-,
nobody is able to find out
what has happened to the
money.
We now wonder if all those
multibillionaires caught up in
the alleged Ponzi scheme
being attributed to Bernard
Madoff will be in
Washington with their hands
out.
If they do, don't bet this
government won't reach
deeper into your 'pocket to
save one more group of fat
cats from their own mistakes.

foreign oil.
That sounds wonderful.
But that plant is not corn.
That process is not simple.
And that fuel is not ethanol.
It was a nice image while it
lasted, however. Americans
loved the idea of a clean,
green fuel that could take the
place of petroleum.
But the vision was flawed
from the start which was
way back in the Carter
administration. The Iranian
hostage crisis prompted
Jimmy Carter to look for a
homegrown alternative to
Mideast oil. Cornell
University scientist David
Pimental began studying the
concept. He added up the
energy used in manufacturing
ethanol and compared it to
the amount of energy the fuel
produces. There was .a net
loss, he decided. But fe farm
lobby succeeded in winning
tax breaks and subsidies for
the fuel.
"We're actually importing
more oil to produce ethanol,"
is Pimental's assessment.
"It's not making us oil-inde-
pendent, and it's costing us a
lot of money." ...
As president, Barack
Obama should stand up to the
special interests in Congress.
If these guys want pork, let
them feed that corn, to their
pigs.
Then the new president can
focus on finding real solu-
tions to our energy problems.

Bad pride, arrogance

Editor:
If I have to outburst at the
local level, it always' disturbs
me too much, as for things
S|like the firing of a fine
employee.

edged as bad pride, arro-
gance and just plain old dis-
respect of a gentle soul.
There are Frank Castles

firstborn graduates from
high school. Am I excited?
Yes. Am I scared? Yes.
Would I change things that
I've done in the past 18
years? Yes.
I have no doubt of her
future. She is a bright young
girl with high values. Yes,
I'm bragging. No, I've not
turned a blind eye on her.
For most of her school
years, Briana has been shy ...
at least quiet. She's been
very studious, which is why
she makes such good grades.
She and I have talked a lot
in recent years about her
friends and her time outside
of school. She has often
opted to spend time with her
brother and myself than to
go out with friends. That too
has changed to some degree.
This year Briana has not
hesitated to make plans with
her friends. They enjoy
going to the movies and out
for a quick sandwich, or
milkshake. They often go off
campus for lunch, just laugh-
ing and having a good time.
I remember those days.
Briana has demonstrated
great leadership skills. As
second in command in the!
Air Force Junior ROTC, she
has put those skills to work.
She is strong-minded in
the way that I don't have to
worry about her being a fol-
lower. Briana knows right
from wrong andithoughshe
is a teen and enjoys teenage
pranks, they are the good,
clean kind where no one gets,
hurt.
Materialism and populari-
ty means nothing to her. She
is content with what she has
and values true friends more
than status among her peers.
Briana is also very strong
in her faith. It is rare that
she misses a church service
or Bible study. Even there
she shows her learning


strengths. She con-
stantly takes notes
and looks over my
shoulder at Bible
passages. It amazes
me how sometimes
the preacher can be
talking about some-
thing and she flips
to a passage in the
Bible that relates to
the sermon before
he even mentions it.
I wish I knew the
Bible as well.


This is a year of growth
for her. A year of bonding
and a year of breaking away.
I often think of how head
strong I was when I was her
age. I was different than
Briana. I preferred to be
away with friends than
around family. I preferred
my friends to my studies and
grades.
I consider myself very
lucky when I think of how
my parents must have felt
during my senior, year. Sure,
I was a leader in my own
way, but I wanted to do
things.my way and I did.
Looking back, I may have
been a bit too independent.
Now I look at the good
fortune I face with my first-
born in her senior year.
I don't worry about where
Briana will go to school. She
can go wherever she sets her
mind for. I also don't worry
about Briana's future. She's
bright and I know she can be
whatever she wants to be.
I will support her every
inch of the way, just as my
parents did.
As the graduation date
draws near, it brings a new
sense of wonder to me.
Almost like watching her
grow as a toddler and show
amusement over the simple
things we as adults have
learned to take for granted.
Briana is anxious to begin
college, excited about her
final months in high school
and anticipating life as an
adult. I am simply hanging
on for the ride and hoping
that I'm ready for my little
girl to spread her wings and
fly.

Small produce stand
is a great business
Editor:
It is with great apprecia-
tion, that I wish to thank
Aubrey and Louise. They
operate a small produce
stand on the corner of State
Road 64 and North Hart
Avenue in Avon Park.
On Friday I inavertently
left my wallet with all my
credit cards, money, license
at his stand. With great
effort they found me and
returned my wallet.
Honest, hard-working peo-
ple like them should be com-
mended. Avon Park should
be proud to have them in our
community. Stop and thank
them.

Continued from page 1A
airport CRA isn't meeting, then the decisions
regarding the fixed-base operations building
under construction will be made by Airport
Manager C.B. Shirey alone.
"Unless you want C.B. to go ahead as air-
port manager to make all those decisions on
his own, I don't want to put the building on
hold. I mean, as I understand it, we went
ahead and spent money before we had the
'public hearings. Is that the question you are
trying to answer?" asked Barben.
"There are a lot of questions about the
CRA, including if it was formed properly or
not," said Adelt.
"This is five, six years later. I don't think
we are going to do any more harm by meet-
ing if we were not formed correctly," Barben
said. "Just because I got a speeding ticket
this morning doesn't mean that I am not
going to drive to work after that. We need to
keep moving forward."
Adelt countered that the reason there is an
airport manager is to make decisions about
the airport, but council member George Hall
argued with that statement.
"These guys are going to meet and make
decisions whether we let them meet and
make decisions or not. These guys have air-
craft in hangers next to each other and they
talk about what's going on at the airport ... I
mean we are in the middle of a $750,000
project at the airport, and at the beginning we
used this committee to steer this project, and
we are just 60 days from having it complet-
ed," Hall said.
"I don't have a problem on an advisory
basis for these groups. If anything goes
wrong, and we don't have this little advisory
group, then it's gonna be all C.B.'s fault,"
said council member Joe Wright.
"Don't we pay him to manage that?" asked
councilman Al Joe Hinson. "I am impressed
with the housing authority, the way they han-
dle that is a good idea. We pay C.B. out of
taxpayers' money, and I feel that if we pay
him out of the airport's money, then we
won't have these problems."
Barbdn responded that $24,000 a -year for
the airport manager comes out of the CRA
money.
Council member Brenda Gray added that
she thought it was "ridiculous" that all CRA
meetings had been halted, saying, "We
should have really thought about this before
we said all CRAs need to stop meeting."
"I think that the reason they were put on
hold was because there were so many ques-
tions by the newspaper and by citizens out
there on how we were handling the CRA,"
Schuler said.
"My fear is that we are going to get farther

down the road and something is not going to
be right, and we are not going to have some-
one we can hold accountable," Hall said.,
"If we are wrong, then we are wrong," said
Wright, who suggest that the CRAs continue
to meet, but not approve any new projects.
"At this point as far as we know we have
done everything right. We have done every-
thing correct," Gray said.
Florida Statute 163.361(2) clearly states
that "The governing body shall hold a public
hearing on a proposed modification of any
community redevelopment plan after public
notice thereof by publication in a newspaper
having a general circulation in the area of
operation of the agency."
City Clerk Cheryl Tiejen confirmed in
December that the Community
Redevelopment Agency was not meeting its
statuary obligation for public hearings, call-
ing into question the legitimacy of the.
board's past decisions and it's authority to
expend money.
"I am not sure that the CRA members
would want to continue to meet, because
they cannot take any actions, but if that is the
demeanor of the council, then that decision is
up to them," Schuler said. "The 26th is not
going to be the saving grace, it is going to be
a workshop where we get out some ques-
tions, then they will take those back and give
us the correct direction."
"There' is nothing in writing that we have
not done everything right," she added.

was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital with
serious injuries.
A spokesperson from Tampa General said
the hospital did not have a record of the 15-
year-old on file, and Wood said he was no
longer in the hospital.
Four other passengers in the semi-truck who
received minor injuries were Amanda Cox, 16,
Shawn Loeb, 7, and Kristopher Loeb, 7, all of
Avon Park.
They were taken to LRMC for treatment and
were released, according to Wood.
The semi truck's sixth passenger, Lori Cox,
38, of Avon Park, was not injured.

Muhammad, 46, a citizen of Jamaica, was
found in the trunk of a burned car across the
Hardee County line.
Both deaths are classified as homicides.
"There is still activity in both cases,"
Labelle said, not able to give an estimate of
when arrests could be made. "It's still too
early to tell."
There were witnesses to the Arnold mur-
der, which happened in the front yard of the
Deerwalk Avenue home in Lake Placid.
Within days of the shooting, Labelle said
evidence was obtained through search war-
rants. More than two months later, the case
remains open with no arrests.
"We had to make sure we interviewed
everyone and completed every investigative
procedure before we went forward and
charged anyone," he said.
An unrelated shooting on Nov. 2 worked
by the Lake Placid Police Department result-
ed in attempted murder charges brought up
on a man within hours of the crime.
The charges were dropped two weeks later
after a second interview with the victim,
Abraham Hernandez.
Hernandez was airlifted to. a hospital in
Fort Myers in critical condition but later said


'There is still activity in
both cases.'

the accused had not shot him.
The more recent Muhammad case, initial-
ly under investigation by three departments,
is still worked on every day by the HCSO,
Labelle said.
"That is one fairly active case," he said.
"We are working that diligently."
Search warrants have been conducted in -
the case, but Labelle would not confirm their
location or elaborate on their effectiveness.
The murder was initially investigated by
the Hardee County Sheriff's. Office and the
State Fire Marshall's Office, but was later
given over to the local sheriff's office.
Muhammad was living in Highlands
County at the time of his death and the VIN
and partial tag number from the burned vehi-
cle showed the owner lived in Sebring.
While Muhammad was known by the
name Malik in Highlands County, it was an
alias, according to a press release by the
HCSO. His real name was reportedly Dwight
Clyde Williams.


DEP fill dirt investigation re-opened

matter, the DEP decided to
reopen the closed criminal
case and reinvestigate -the
matter.
The Highlands County
Sheriff Department (HCSO)
is also investigating DEP
for at least one incident of
alleged records destruction.
The stored information of a
recorded meeting may have
been. erased.
In the incident report
from HCSO, Dave Harris, a
detective with the DEP,
admitted that "he might
have been" in violation of
the Government in Sunshine
Law (Statute 119).
Harris also stated in the-
report that "this was his first
encounter with such deal-
ings (public records
request) and that it would
usually would go through
DEP records department."


Additionally, the Sebring
Police Department has two
complaints about other
records violations, includ-
ing a part of a handwritten
note of an investigation file
found outside the building
in the grass by officers
while on the scene collect-
ing information.
Despite the incident
reports, DEP spokesman Eli
Flesher said that the depart-
ment has done nothing
wrong.
"We have not committed
any records violations. That
office (in Sebring) is a
branch office, and this may
have been a situation where
some folks may not have
know what was going on,"
Flesher said.
When asked by the News-
Sun about any missing
recordings, Flesher at first
stated that it is not common
practice for the DEP to


record meetings, but cor-
rected that when a staff
member pointed out to him
that a specific meeting with
Colby had been recorded.
"We never ever records a
meeting, but it was just
pointed out to me that we
did record this particular
meeting," Flesher said.
"I will get you a copy of
that meeting," he added.
But in a second phone
call, Flesher stated that the
recording had been lost due
to human error.
"I have to apologize. I
was informed that there is
no recording of that meeting
after all. There was some
sort of human error involved
and the person recording the
meeting did not get it right.
But the department stands
that there has not been a
records violation," Flesher
stated.

Florida Hospital Lake Placid welcomes new administrator


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID '- Florida
Hospital Heartland Division
CEO/President Tim Cook
announced an organizational
change that will lead current Lake
Placid Administrator Doug
Harcombe to expand his human
resources role within the three-cam-
pus division and welcome new Lake
Placid Administrator Warren
Santander.
Santander became a full-time
administrator of Florida Hospital
Lake Placid beginning Jan. 5. He
comes to FHHD' after being the


chief operating officer at Desoto
Memorial Hospital in Arcadia.
Santander has
been a healthcare
executive for many
years and has previ-
ously provided lead-
ership in Adventist
Health Systems in
the areas of finance, Name
operations and
human resources. He is a dedicated
man of faith and has lived in Lake
Placid and Highlands County for
the past eight years.
"We moved to Highlands County


to care for terminally ill parents and
relatives. Our first year was spent in
a rental home behind the 'hospital in
Lake Placid. We fell in love with
Lake Placid and the people,"
Santander said. "I am very excited
about the opportunity to work with
the town of Lake Placid and
Highlands County to continue the
tradition of excellent health care
close to home. My commitment to
the people of Lake Placid is to work
as hard as possible with the leaders'
in the town, our dedicated health-
care professionals and physicians,
and government officials, to meet


those challenges and build firm
foundations for the future."
Cook also explained Harcombe's
role as the new title of executive
director of Human Resources and
Organizational Development. His
focus will be full time on imple-
menting strategies, systems and
programs that will ensure the
FHHD team is supported as they
extend the healing ministry of
Christ.
"This was a difficult decision for
me because Florida Hospital Lake
Placid and the Lake Placid commu-
nity have a special bond and really


support each other. I enjoy being
part of that," Harcombe said. "But
this change represents a great
opportunity for this bond to grow
since Florida Hospital Lake Placid
will now have a full-time adminis-
trator."
"Our Florida Hospital Heartland
Division team is the most important
resource we have," stated Cook.
"Recruiting, retaining, training and
supporting the best people are cru-
cial factors in fulfilling our mis-
sion."

provides consumers more remedies


At-risk homeowners
should be wary about
rescue schemes

By CHARLES J. KOVALESKI
Many homeowners are
searching desperately for
cash and calm amid the eco-
nomic downturn. More peo-
ple are out of work and home
prices are tumbling, both of
which are factors that
increase the foreclosure risk.
. As consumers face pres-
sure across Florida and
around the nation, predators
posing as mortgage saviors
entice these at-risk home-
owners with schemes they
say will provide their rescue.
In fact, however, the faulty
plans are designed to swindle
consumers out of more
money, or worse, the very
home they're trying to save.
A new Florida law the
Foreclosure Fraud Protection
Act took effect Oct. 1. A
key protection in the law is
the creation of a three-day
right-of-cancellation period.
Further, would-be foreclo-
sure rescuers must present a
written agreement that must
be signed by both parties.
The contract also must
include a recommendation
that the homeowner contact
his or her lender or mortgage
servicer prior to signing the
agreement, which must
inform the homeowner that
the consultant is prohibited
from accepting payment until
all services are completed.
The law also provides better
remedies for consumers.
Scam artists practiced in
foreclosure fraud often aim
their plots at homeowners
who are unable to pay their
mortgage but retain sizeable
equity. Lists of at-risk own-
ers are generated by examin-
ing notice of default lists and
cross-referencing them with
local property tax rolls.
Armed with these lists,
criminals send mail, post fly-
ers or phone nerve-wracked
homeowners with the phony
offer of helping them avoid
foreclosure often through an
upfront fee or through dubi-
ous a lease-buyback arrange-
ment. The deals sounds great
- and that's when unsuspect-
ing consumers let their guard
down and fall prey.
The new law is designed to
provide a better shield for
homeowners, said Florida
Attorney General Bill
McCollum.
"This is aimed at someone
who comes along and tells
people they'll help them save
a home," McCollum said.
"Those who are unscrupu-
lous, but basically don't pro-
vide service. This new law
will provide some new tools
to us."
Violators face deceptive
business-practices charges.
"Anybody who's thinking
that they might have to give
up their home, should go to
the bank or the mortgage
company and try to negotiate
somehow to reduce the pay-
ments, change the plan, so


they can afford it,"
McCollum said.
At-risk consumers can pro-
tect themselves by under-
standing all legal documents
and seeking advice from their
real estate attorney, real
estate broker or Housing and
Urban Development
Counselor. There also scam-
avoidance guidelines avail-
able from the Florida Office
of Financial Regulation and
the National Consumer Law
Center. Other tips:
Know the red flag
behaviors: If you're instruct-
ed to not contact your attor-
ney, lender, housing coun-
selor or similar, this indicates
something foul is afoot. If
you hear that the prospective
foreclosure counselor can
"guarantee" that it can stop
the process no matter the cir-
cumstances then there's
cause for concern. Further, if
the "foreclosure expert"
offers to complete all the
paperwork for you to save
time, that could signal trou-
ble ahead.
Be wary about signing
over your deed: If anyone
suggests that you need to
sign away ownership of your
home, this is a clear warning
sign. Seek professional guid-
ance if you choose this route
so that you understand the
legal implications. By sign-
ing over your deed, you lose
your rights to your home and
all equity that has accrued.
A common scam is the fic-
titious buyback or lease-back
option, which involves sign-
ing over the deed. The unful-
filled promise is that the
unsuspecting homeowner
thinks he or she has agreed to
remain in the home as a
renter with the option of buy-
ing it back later.
Consumers may hear that
surrendering their deed helps
them improve their credit so
that new financing can be
obtained. In reality, the fake
rescuers retain possession of
the house, including most of
its remaining equity.
Phantom help: The
scam here is that the home-
owner is promised help but
only if he or she pays a fee
first. The con artist then
leaves with the money. Don't
pay for anything upfront.
+ Don't sign without
reading: If a document is too
complex to understand, seek
the advice of a real estate
attorney or a trusted financial
advisor. Refuse to sign docu-
ments that contain erroneous
information or blank spaces
that can be filled in.
One form of fraud is a bait-
and-switch. Homeowners are
told by mortgage broker
imposters that they're sign-
ing documents to refinance a
burdensome mortgage when
they're actually signing over
ownership of the home.
Make mortgage pay-
ments yourself: Do not trust
anyone to make mortgage
payments for you. Criminals
often insert themselves or
unscrupulous third-parties
into the equation to steal your


money.
These are uncertain times.
But the economic pressure
should not be compounded
by con artists pretending to
offer consumers relief. Seek
genuine counseling from
your real estate attorney, bro-
ker or other professionals.
; 'An old bromide provides a
good dose of protection: If it
sounds too good to be true, it
probably is.

A lesson in home ownership


Courtesy photo
C.S. Edwards Realty agents recently presented a home buyer's seminar to the public at
the Sebring Chamber of Commerce. Attendees learned of loan programs from Debbie
McMillian of Bank of America. Other topics covered were foreclosures, short sales,
USDA loans, Ship state assisted down payments and what an offer to purchase entails.
The next seminar will be this month. Those who attended applauded the company for a
job well done and promised to attend the next session.



More help for homeowners facing foreclosure


By CJ HAMEL
Special to the News-Sun
The threat of foreclosure is one of the
most devastating and scarriest things that a
home owner can face in their lives. And it is
increasing in epidemic proportions.
Foreclosure threats from lenders is up 70
percent this quarter 2008 than the same time
in 2007.
In order to give back to our community,
Kathy Tirey, my co associate, and myself
attended an intensive three-day conference
to become educated and empowered to
assist and advise the many households in
our county alone who are faced with this
threat of losing their homes. They may be
facing a job loss, the loss of a loved one, a
medical problem or some unforeseen cir-
cumstance that has made them incapable of
keeping up their mortgage payments, and.
now they have the threat of becoming
homeless.
Ovei 100 of the top producing real estate
agents in the country attended the confer-
ence to receive the designation as a
Certified Distressed Property Expert or
CDPE. They came in to Orlando from as far
as Alaska and Hawaii. We all shared a com-
mon goal that if we could help keep. one
more family out of foreclosure, it would be
time and money well spent.


Banks are ready now more than ever to
assist homeowners in avoiding foreclosure
and we can truly help as professional real-
tors trained in how to work with banks in
seeking approval of short sales.
So many homeowners go in to foreclo-
sure without ever trying to seek the help of
a professional. They are not only scared, but
they are embarrassed. We need to let them
know they are not alone. There are many
alternatives today to avoid foreclosure, and
the sooner they seek help, the more options
they have open to them.
I feel it is important that we inform the
people of our county about the benefits of a
short sale settlement as opposed to a fore-
closure, which stays with them for the rest
of theif lives.
Did you know that anyone with a securi-
ty clearance, i.e, police officer, military per-
sonnel, etc. will lose their job if they have a
foreclosure on their record?
Let's pull together to try to overcome the
enormous amount of distressed properties
that are lowering the market values of all of
our homes. Not to mention, destroying the
appearance of so many neighborhoods.
If you have any further questions,-do not
hesitate to contact me.

Another was not as lucky,
but seemed happy with the
$355.00 they received for
broken gold jewelry. "I think
this is a great idea" said one
lady that sold her old class
ring and some broken gold
chains. "The stuff was just
lying in a dresser drawer
for years." She received

Candace Schepperle, in green, gets a congratulatory hug
from co-runner up, Amelia Lewis, after winning the 54th
'Annual Harder Hall Women's Invitational Saturday after-
noon.

SEBRING Much like
Tiger Woods when he holds a
lead on the final day, Auburn
junior Candace Schepperle
left the rest of the field hop-
ing against hope to just try
and keep up.
The '07 runner-up at the
Harder Hall Women's
Invitational, Schepperle shot
a final-round, tournament-
record 65, for a 13-under par
275 for the week, to win the
54th edition of the tourna-
ment going away.
"I'm so excited," she said.
"Today was that round I've
been waiting for all week."
The tone was set early, as
'Candy' birdied her first two


holes to quickly go from six
under over the first three
rounds to eight under.
She then went for birdie on
six, seven and eight to close
the first nine holes with a
borderline ridiculous 31 to
move to 11-under par.
Her nearest competition,
meanwhile, wasn't falling
apart, but there was little they
could do to keep pace.
Amelia Lewis and Cindy
LaCrosse each birdied the
second and Lewis added
another at five while
LaCrosse added another
birdie at eight.
But even with a two-under
34 through nine, LaCrosse

'Blessed' Rewis inducted into Hall of Fame


By SCOTT DRESSEL
Scott.dressel@newssun.com
DAYTONA BEACH -
When it comes to his career
in athletics, Sebring High
School baseball coach Hoppy
Rewis told the crowd assem-
bled at the Daytona Beach
Hilton Saturday afternoon to
watch him and six others be
inducted into the Florida
Athletic Coaches Association
Hall of Fame, he's been
"blessed since day one."
Blessed to play for great
coaches as he grew up in
Avon Park. Like his Little
League coach, Raymond
Cook, high school coach
Ralph Hill and then Dunning
Terrell at South Florida
Community College.
"I thought he was the
toughest man I'd ever seen,"
Rewis said of Cook during
his induction speech. "He'd
throw batting practice and
we'd hit it back up the middle
and he'd stick his leg out and
stop it. I thought, 'Wow, Mr.
Cook is not only smart and a
great coach, he's one tough
dude.'
"Then I went to his house
for a swimming party and he
took his wooden leg off
before he went swimming. "
But even then, at the age of
9, Rewis said his experience
with Cook set his life's path.
"We learned things we did-
n't even know we were learn-
ing, and I think at that point I
knew I wanted to be a
coach," Rewis said. "I want-
ed to do what Mr. Cook did."
Blessed, also, to have a
mother and father who let
him be a kid as long as he
could, Rewis said, something
he said is lacking in today's
society during his emotional
speech.
Rewis also said he was
blessed to have a wife who

and also made him a proud
grandfather.
But having his son Steve,
now head baseball coach at
district rival Hardee, sit in
the other dugout hasn't
always been easy. The first
few times they played, it was
the elder Rewis who came
out on top, something that
weighed heavy on both
coaches, but especially

Rewis was on hand to see
both Jackson and Rapp
inducted into the Hall of
Fame, and told the crowd that
those two ceremonies and the
one Saturday were "the only
three things I've ever been to
during hunting season."
After the ceremony, Rewis
said that the experience was
fantastic.
"It was really important to
me that I went in as an active
coach. I look around at the
people that are in there, and it
really takes something to get


there.," he said. "A lot of
people in Avon Park in
Sebring over the years they
made it happen. I've hung
around with really great peo-
ple and been very fortunate

have happened to me.

They're not perfect, but we

"I'm a little bit different,"
Rewis went on, having to
pause to control his emo-
tions. "I've got friends that
look forward to retirement,
but my last day of school will
be one of the worst days of
my life. I don't look forward
to leaving there at all because
I love those kids and I love
what I do. I know it will have
to happen, but it will be a sad
day in my life."


Late Clewiston goal nets L.P. tie


News-Sun pnoto oy DAIN i.U-iINE
Yurriba Terrones holds up one finger in celebration of her
goal Monday night. In fact, it was Lake Placid's second goal
of the evening and her 24th of the season. But Clewiston
answered back and broke even with the Dragons for a 2-2
tie.


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun sportswriter
LAKE PLACID The 01'
Ball Coach might have said
it best when he compared
tying a game to "kissing his
sister."
Lake Placid and
Clewiston have the same
feeling heading into
Tuesday morning as the two
teams played to a 2-2 tie.
In the season opener, the
Dragons and Tigers played
to a 4-4 tie.
Things worked out the
same for the hometown
faithful as they watched
their beloved Dragons give
up a game tying goal with
12 minutes left in the game.
"We just didn't finish,"
commented Green Dragon
skipper John Merlo. "We
had them right there but we
made a defensive mistake
that cost us. Clewiston is a
really good team so I don't


feel too terrible right now."
The Dragons got on the
scoreboard in lightning fast
speed.
In the opening minute of
the game Yurribia Terrones
sent a nice pass to Erica
Resendiz who did the rest as
she dissected the Tiger
defense en route tb the goal.
Clewiston answered back
ten minutes later when
Courtney Moore got a loose
ball in front of the net and
was able to sneak it past
goalie Sarah Thompson.
The Dragons continued to
push the ball down into
Clewiston territory until
they were able to get the
break they needed.
With less than 20 minutes
to go in the half, Resendiz
booted in a well executed
corner kick that was
received by Terrones.
With a quick slap of the


foot, Terrones sent the ball
into the left side of the net
clanging off the inside post.
Things looked good for
the Dragons until the 28th
minute of the second half
when Moore got a pass
behind the defense allowing
one-on-one with the goalie.
Despite the tie the
Dragons had another sharp
effort from Thompson who
came away with 12 saves.
"Sarah did a great job
again for us," said Merlo.
"She had 12 saves with
three of those being out-
standing. The two goals
weren't here fault. The
defense fell a sleep and let
passes set in behind them."
With the tie, the Dragons
finish the regular season
with a 10-1-2 record and
head to McKeel for the
District tournament

Continued from 1B
had dropped three strokes.
Lewis, meanwhile, found
herself in trouble on the
ninth when, chipping out of
a sand trap, she caught the
ball flush and sent it over
the green and right against
the stem of some shrubbery.
Given a free placement,
her next shot caught more
sand, though this time she
got up and down to 'save' a
double bogey for an even-
par front nine that had her
seven shots back.
"I was a little nervous
early on," Lewis said. "The
final day, playing in the
final group. I got myself
into some trouble, but was
able to get out of it and my
nerves settled as the round
went on. But with the way
Candace was playing today,
nobody was going to catch
her."
Lewis and LaCrosse each
made a push, carding three
birdies on the back nine, but
a bogie each brought them
in with 34s and a tie for sec-
ond with 6-under, 282s for
the week, while Schepperle
birdied the 15th.-and 17th,
parred the rest and also


adds name to famed list


carded a 34 to provide for
the final margin making it
wins in consecutive weeks
after winning the Dixie
Amateurs at Heron Bay in
Coral Springs.
"I've been playing with a
lot of confidence for the last
couple months," Schepperle
said. "I've been waiting for
this kind of recognition for a
long time. It. feels great to
know my name Will be up
there among the best."

Rounding out the top 10
of the championship flight
of the latest edition of the
Harder Hall were Jessica
Korda (285), Whitney
Neuhauser (286), Christy
Carter (288), Holly- Clyburn
(289), Alexandra Bodemann
(291) and Nanette Hill,
Wendi Golden and Meghan
Bolger (293s).
The top three finishes in
the First Flight went to
Rachel Cassidy of Stirling,
Scotland (309), Jillian Brod
of Knoxville, TN (313) and
Laura Murray of
Aberdeenshire, Scotland
(314).
In the Second Flight,


Tama Caldabaugh of Ponte
Vedra Beach was first (322),

City, NJ and Carol Martin of
Irving, TX second and third
(326s).
Sandra Jackson of New
York City won the Third
Flight (344), Cynthia Friend
of Lexington, MA was sec-
ond (348) and Evelyn

Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamber/in
SEBRING Today we
find your recreation club on
the fast track for your enter-
tainment for 2009. Carl Wile
is even trying his best for
more bingo players. Bring
your friends and people that
you know'.
All can have a good time
even if you should not be the
big winner for the evening.
Bring some fingerfood and
share it with other players,
don't count calories at bingo.
Let your hair down and join
in the fun.
Line dancing is in full
swing and has started the new'
year in step. They will be
glad to have you join them
but they are not holding back
waiting for you. Come and
try an evening dancing with
us and see if you do not add
us to your new year plans.
Randy and Carol play cards;
shuffleboard and I have heard
that they are thinking of line
dancing next.
The club offers so much,
Stop by the desk from 9 a.m.
to no.on Monday-Friday and
ask for your calendar and see
for yourself. Jan. 25 is .the
only day that is open on the
calendar this month.
Table tennis is still looking
for another table, so if you
are aware of one please let a
ping-pong player, an officer
or director know about it. We
have several new members
that are just ping-pong play-
ers.
And even ,.s'me old mem-
bers that are tymg the sport
out. Gary Holloway played
and said that he: had a very
good' time and even found
many lost and forgotten mus-
cles. He did question if it was
worth finding them in this
fashion or not.
Did you sign up for shuf-
fleboard league? If you did
not, see Gary and have him
put you on the sub list if you
a,*e 'interested. We all have

100th birthday celebration


Courtesy photo
Ula Potlin recently celebrated her 100th birthday at The Palms of Sebring. Born on Dec.
27, 1908 in the northwest part of Oklahoma, she lived there until her teen years. She mar-
ried Abraham Potlin and they had a daughter, Anna. The family served as missionaries
from 1954 to 1959 in Jerusalem. She moved to Florida from New York in the '70s. She
loves to play bingo and dominoes. Her birthday party with residents and staff in the health
care center at The Palms of Sebring was a pleasant surprise to her.


are still pickin' and grinin'.
The teams have not been
drawn at this writing. If you
shuffle, try the league.
Many members do not
attract attention but sure do
accomplish good works.
Margaret White showed her
grit at the board meeting by
not giving a new name for the
hobby group. She said that it
should remain the hobby club
until all members of the
group had a chance to voice
their opinion.
Carol Weise is another
worker as she gets meals
even for Christmas Day. Not
stopping with this one, she
again plans and cooks meat
for New Year's Day meal.
She and husband Larry do the
Bluegrass Travelers, which
will be on Sunday. George
Kisel, our treasurer and
investment strategist, keeps
the club afloat. Many names
'have not been mentioned this
time but you know those that
should be listed.


John Bushee and his world
famous ice cream shuffle-
board that starts at 1:15 p.m.
each Saturday is in need of.
more players. John has 36
courts and only uses a few at
this time.
The charge is still 25 cents
and you will win an ice
cream at the end of three
games. What other sport
costs 25 cents for the after-
noon winning ice cream with
the chance of getting a nickel
back?
Jan. 22 finds no pros in a
tournament in Sebring. Jan.
23 finds a draw double for
the amateur's district and
state. Will Marilyn Wile
make this one her second or
third tournament? If one will
only try shuffleboard, they
are apt to get hooked with it.
The club is at 333
Pomegranate Ave. (behind
Sebring Police Station),
where all this happens. Call
Ed Straub with questions at
386-0245.

CLUBS & ORGANIZATIONS


Knights of Columbus continues activities '


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Pope John
XXIII Council of the
Knights of Columbus
announces the continuation
of all council activities for
the coming year. There has
been some confusion in the
community caused by the
closing of the Knights of
Columbus hall and the termi-
nation of the long running
bingo program. Many people
only know the Knights of
Columbus through the bingo
program and the large hall on
U.S. 27.
It was with a heavy heart
and great regret the organiza-
tion was forced to close the
hall and consequently termi-


nate the bingo program. The
financial burden of maintain-
ing the building and land has
proven to be too difficult to
sustain. The building needs
repairs and bingo is not as
profitable as it once was.
The Knights of Columbus
is much more than a "brick
and mortar" organization and
more than a mere sponsor of
bingo games. The Knights of
Columbus is a fraternal order
of Catholic men, loyal to
Holy Mother Church and
dedicated to the principles of
charity, unity, fraternity and
patriotism. It is international
in scope and by far the
largest organization of
Catholic men in the world.


The Pope John XXIII
council has been in Sebring
since the early 1960s and the
hall was built in 1972. Since
that time, the council has
contributed many thousands
of dollars, earned through its
very successful bingo pro-
gram and has given gener-
ously to many charities in
Avon Park, Sebring,
Highlands County and else-
where. These charities
include but are not limited
to: Arc, Gabriel Project, vet-
erans organizations, college
scholarships, American Red
Cross, New Testament
Mission, Highlands County
Health Department, Civil Air
Patrol, Covenant House and

with their Beta Buddies, as
they did for Halloween and
Thanksgiving. They have
had some interesting pro-
grams such as a presentation
by Peggy Golden on the
Unknown Soldier and the
guards, a presentation on tai
chi given by Carol Todd and
her tai chi instructor. All
members took part in that
one. And a fun presentation
on feet was given by Ginny
Lovett.
The members enjoyed a
day at The Barn in Lake
Alfred, shopping and lunch-
ing together. They are also
busy with charity work and
are looking forward to help-
ing more people in the new
year.
