Think Green, Build Green


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - Blake Linville graduated
from -Sebring High School in 1993, the
same year the Florida legislature passed its
first piece of legislation aimed at making
Florida building codes more weather proof
and environmentally sound. So, you might
say Linville was born into the new green
era.
He is the owner/operator of Adaptive
Builders, sustainable construction services,
and he specializes in new green construc-
tion or remodeling.
Linville was always, attracted to con-
struction, and started his career by building
sea walls and docks.
Eventually he branched out, and was.
working as a subcontractor when the hous-
ing boom began.
With roughly a decade of practical expe-
rience, "I was ready to go up a notch," he
said.
By moving up a notch Linville meant
more than simply becoming licensed as a
general contractor by the state - he also
meant studying cutting edge techniques
and technology to become a specialist in
sustainable construction.
As the housing market collapsed,

Commissioners split

over two motions

concerning new jail


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun .com
SEBRING - Splitting
hairs over the wording of a
couple of motions concern-
ing the proposed county jail
project, county commis-
sioners killed a budget cor-
rection and marginally
approved accepting a grant
at their meeting on
Tuesday.
According to county
staff, $27,253 in the 2007-
08 budget remains in the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office budget, but
Commissioner Jeff Carlson
was hesitant to roll that
money over if the county
would have to pass another
motion to put it somewhere
else if the new jail is not
built.
"If that project does not
get completed, then we will
need to roll that money
back. I want to wait to see
what happens in our March
3 meeting before we
decide," Carlson said.
According to county
staff, the money is not
encumbered currently, but
there are some parts of the
project already approved


that the money could be
spent on.
"Are we under a time
obligation to this?" asked
chairperson Barbara
Stewart. "If not then we
should wait."
According to County
Administrator Michael
Wright, this was just a
bbokkeeping "clean up"
issue, and the money had
no current obligations.
"I will support this but I
would not want to obligate
this money to the new proj-
ect just yet," Carlson said.
"Once we roll,this over, the
staff has the ability to
spend this on anything they
-like, and we are rolling this
from one account fiscally
and not to a separate
account. I just don't want to
do it twice if the need aris-
es. We are not under a time
constraint, then we can wait
until (March 3)."
When the question was
called, Stewart and Carlson
voted no, while commis-
sioners Guy Maxcy and
Don Bates voted yes. Since
the fifth commissioner,

LEEDing the way
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - As more Americans become concerned
with environmental issues and reducing energy consump-
tion, both official policy and individual choices are becom-
ing increasingly green.
. One obstacle to greening, however, is the haphazard way
in which the wide range of government and business
responses have been evolving. Nationally, more than 70
green rating systems exist.

Commission acts

quickly to get DOT

stimulus money

Must get list of projects
to state by Friday
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Highlands County
Commissioners heard about opportunities
created by the stimulus package signed by
President Barack Obama on Tuesday, but
were told they would have to act fast to get
their list to the Florida Department of
Transportation.
"This is literally happening as we speak,"
said County Administrator
Michael Wright.
"We went to a meeting
on Friday, and we have
put together a list of prior-
ity projects that I would
like the county to approve.
But we need to get that list
back by Friday to the
DOT." .
Projects on the list, 'This is
according to Wright, were literally

we eliminated the project WRIGHT
from our list. We then county
ranked the projects based administrator
on deterioration and traffic patterns. All the
cities had time to submit projects to the list,
and we added those to our rankings based on
the criteria. Lake Placid has not submitted
any projects, and Avon Park submitted two
that were just sidewalk projects," Wright
said.
Wright added that the stimulus package
could mean close to $4 million in aid to the
county, and that the money that was budgeted
for a project could be used somewhere else.
Chairperson Barbara Stewart directed staff
to give the cities another chance to submit
items, and a 2:30 p.m. Tuesday deadline was
set during the discussion at 11 a.m.

Rodney Paul of Koogler and Associates takes air quality readings Tuesday at the county's
asphalt plant while the plant operated using methane gas from the landfill for the first time
since opening in October 2008. "We are aiming to use as much landfill gas as possible,"
said Ken Wheeler, Director of Solid Waste for Highlands County.

County's asphalt plant now using

landfill's methane gas to operate


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - Since the Highlands County
owned and operated asphalt plant opened in
October, the Road and Bridge Department has
paved or resurfaced six miles of the county's
roads.
That number may not seem like a lot, but
with each mile consisting of 650 tons of
asphalt, and each ton using two gallons of fuel
oil, that's more than a few taxpayer dollars -
roughly $20,000 - in fuel alone.


The plant was opened at the landfill with the
hope of harnessing the landfill's methane gas
.as a fuel source, which would essentially
knock that cost down to $2,000.
The plant started using methane to churn out
asphalt on Monday.
Gencor Industries Inc., which sold the coun-
ty the plant, has been working around "com-
puter issues" and started an air testing phase
on Tuesday, said Ken Wheeler, director of
solid waste for the county.

begins Thursday at

LP Memorial Library

Stay Active Retirement Trends
offers variety of speakers


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - The
Lake Placid Memorial
Library is set to launch a new
pilot program on Thursday
called START (Stay Active
Retirement Trends). The pro-
ject's main goal is lifestyle
enhancement, leading to a
retirement filled with memo-
rable experiences.
This will be accomplished
by providing information to
residents who are seeking
knowledge about ways to
have a healthy, active and
enjoyable retirement life in
the Lake Placid/Highlands
County area.
START will feature speak-
ers from community groups
along with government, law
firms, real estate profession-
als, educators and members
of the medical community.
The objective of these pre-
sentations will be to provide
current information on varied
subjects of public interest
that will meet the project's
goals.
The United States Census
Bureau's 2005-07 ACS
Demographic and Housing
Survey estimated that 30,549
(31.4 percent) of Highlands
County population had
reached age 65. These statis-
tics did not include the Baby
Boomers born between 1946
and 1964. Members of this

Beasley will speak on "Shell Heaps and the
Emergence of Community in the Upper St.
Johns River Basin" at 7 p.m. Thursday at
South Florida Community College,
Highlands Campus. The public is invited
free of charge.
Traditionally, shell heaps are interpreted
as piles of trash sporadically occupied by
people eking dut a hardscrabble existence.
When burials are found in the shell, they
are interpreted as the uncaring disposal of
bodies into garbage.
Beasley's presentation will offer a differ-
ent perspective, arguing that earliest shell
heaps found in the upper St. Johns Basin are
some of the earliest physical evidence for
communities found in the eastern United
States.
His study and work represent a radical

TODAY'S EDITORIAL

In tough times, SFCC a role model


When so many of our systems
appear to be failing us, and so
many people who should have
done better are disappointing us, it is
refreshing to walk onto South Florida
Community College's campus.


It has the feel of an institu-
tion of serious learning, the
students walking with purpose
among attractive buildings,
surrounded by the energy of a
vibrant institution.
We would do well to
remember this reality was
born in the mind's eye of for-
mer president, Catherine P.
Cornelious, and nurtured
along by its current president
- Norman Stephens.
Both of these individuals
proved to be indispensable in
taking an institution of higher
learning that spans traditional
liberal arts instruction, certifi-
cation programs, adult, and
continuing education.
Because of their vision, the
college also acts as a cultural
center for the county.
But even more remarkable
than the school itself - which


in less than a generation grew
from make-do classes in
office space to its present
sprawling campus - is the
way its faculty and staff are
adjusting to the difficult eco-
nomic times.
While major auto makers
failed to look into the future
and banking officials put
their' own interests above
those of their customers, the
people of SFCC were alert
and prepared to make
changes, keeping true to the
mission of bringing quality
education to everyone who
reached out for it, and then
worked hard to eptice anyone
else.
We think the way the
Florida Legislature and com-
munity colleges communicat-
ed through this rough time
stands as an example of what


we can manage just
work together.
Because Stephens and his
staff were open to bad news,
and the Legislature was brave
enough to tell it, the necessary
adjustments were made in
time. That means the college
remains in a safe financial
position.
Most importantly, it is safe
without significantly cutting
classes or services.
For example, despite the
cutbacks, SFCC remains com-
mitted to its scholarship pro-
gram, and the graduating class
of 2009 will be presented with
the same opportunities earlier
graduates received.
Of course there have been
sacrifices, just as everywhere
else.
Full-time positions have
been frozen, professors are
taking on added responsibili-
ties, and many instructors
work only part time' and with-
out benefits. But we hope the
knowledge of being part of a
first rate team, that is dedicat-
ed to its community, at least
takes the sting out of the pain.
In any case-, we are grateful.

SWAT youth bring


tobacco awareness


Hollywood's rating system
fails to warn parents that
most movies feature smok-
ing. Young audiences around
the world are still being bom-
barded with billions of tobac-
co impressions every time an
actor lights up or a tobacco
brand is shown.
This isn't a matter of per-
sonal taste or censorship. It's
a major public health chal-
lenge. The tobacco industry
rakes in $4 billion in lifetime
sales through Hollywood
movies that recruit kids to
smoke every year.
Since.the major studios
still won't take action, this
community must. As a first
step, this newspaper can start
including tobacco content in
its movie listings. After all,
smoking is the only movie
content proven to physically
hharm the audience. Second,
the rest of us can write the
studios' parent companies -
Disney, General Electric,,
News Corp., Time Warner,
and Viacom - and tell them
to stop recruiting 390,000
new teen smokers a year for
the tobacco industry. Urge
that all future movies with
smoking be rated "R."
How can we protect our
kids from smoking in
movies?
Rate new smoking movies
"R": Movie studios routinely
tune film content to win the
rating they want for commer-
cial reasons. They should
treat smoking (which kills!
close to one American each
minute) exactly the way they
treat four-letter words: Any
film that shows or implies
tobacco should be rated "R."
The only exceptions should
be when the presentation of
tobacco clearly and unam-
biguously reflects the dangers
and consequences of tobacco
use or is necessary to repre-
sent the smoking of a real
historical figure. Films
released before the rating
system change would not be
re-rated.
Result? Producers will
keep smoking out of films
they want rated PG -13 to
attract a bigger audience, just
like they tone down violence
and sex today. While kids
would still see smoking in
the R-rated films they man-
age to view, their overall
exposure should be cut at
least in half. Cutting expo-
sure in half could avert as
many as 60,000 U.S. tobacco
deaths annually.


Guest
Column
Donna Stayton

Certify no payoffs:
Producers of films with
tobacco should post a certifi-
cate in the closing credits
declaring that nobody on the
production received anything
of value (cash money, free
cigarettes or other gifts, free
publicity, interest-free loans
or anything else) from any-
one in exchange for using or
displaying tobacco. .
Require strong anti-smok-
ing ads: Studios and theaters
should run a genuinely strong
anti-smoking ad (not one pro-
duced by a tobacco company)
before any film with tobacco
presence, in any distribution
channel, regardless of the
film's rating. When you con-
tact theaters and theater
chains, emphasize that strong
anti-tobacco spots must show
before all films with smok-
ing.
Stop showing tobacco
brands: There should be no
tobacco brand identification
or the presence of tobacco
brand imagery (such as bill-
boards) in the background of
any movie scene. R-rating
tobacco in future movies is
endorsed by leading health
groups, but the rating system
is controlled by major movie
studios. That means a handful
of media executives have the
power to reduce dramatically
our kids' exposure to on-
screen smoking, saving as
many as 60,000 U.S. lives a
year in decades to come.
On Saturday at Lakeshore
Mall from 5-8 p.m., please
join our Highlands and
Hardee County SWAT youth
to bring awareness to
America's most toxic export
- Hollywood blockbuster
movies with tobacco imagery
that arrive on screens without
warning. Tobacco will kill 5.
million people this year
around the world. That num-
ber is expected to double
unless tobacco promotion is
halted. That includes tobacco
product placement in the
movies we love.
Please view www.tobacco
freeflorida.com for more
information regarding tobac-
co use.

Donna Noel Stayton is the
tobacco prevention specialist for
the Highlands County Health
Department.


Freedom of Choice Act
is a serious threat
Editor:
The Freedom of Choice Act
(FOCA) will write a woman's
"right" to kill her pre-born child
into law and will prohibit federal,
state and local governments from
enacting any type of law or regula-
tion that would, in any way, inter-
fere with a woman killing her pre-'
born baby.
FOCA prohibits any federal or
state government entity from deny-
'ing or interfering with abortion
rights or discriminating against the
exercise of these rights. Even the
most reasonable restrictions on
abortion would be off-limits as
unlawful interference. This means
the progress made by the pro-life
movement over the past 35 years in
limiting and reducing abortions
through modest regulations could
vanish overnight. For instance, it
would invalidate all state laws relat-
ing to pre-abortion counseling,
parental notification for children
under the age of 18, waiting peri-
ods, restrictions on late term and
partial birth abortions. By saying
that government may not "discrimi-
nate" against the right to an abor-
tion, FOCA opens the door to
require the taxpayers in every state
to fund abortions.
FOCA is the most radical of
abortion legislation ever considered
by the U.S. Congress. It's goal is to
establish a fundamental right to
abortion and would go far beyond
what the U.S. Supreme Court ever
contemplated in the Roe vs. Wade


(1973) and Planned Parenthood vs.
Casey (1992) decisions.
Experts agree that the modest
restrictions on abortions that cur-
rently exist in state and federal law
have been effective in reducing
abortion rates and saving lives.
According to a recent nationwide
survey conducted by the Marist
College Institute for Public
Opinion, 92 percent of Americans
believe there should be some
restrictions on abortion. According
to the poll, 75 percent of Americans
favor parental notification when
someone under the age of 18 is
planning an abortion. A large major-
ity of Americans - whether they
are pro-life or pro-choice - favor
restrictions on late term abortions.
Clearly then, FOCA is out of step
with American public opinion.
FOCA would have an equally
destructive effect on the freedom of
conscience of doctors, nurses and
health care workers whose personal
convictions do not permit them to
cooperate with the killing of unborn
children. This Act could force
Catholic hospitals and other faith-
based facilities to close their doors
rather than cooperate with evil.
We now have a new Congress
and a president who has stated he
will sign FOCA. Both the House
and the Senate will have stronger
pro-choice majorities than ever
before.'The serious threat that
FOCA poses to human life - to
mothers, unborn babies and family
members - should be a wake up call
to all citizens who value the
Sanctity of Life. We should be pre-,
pared to fight this latest version of

Spraying taking place
on Lake Jackson
Editor:
Residents of Sebring, you should
be outraged.
Today on my way to work driv-
ing on U.S. 27 on the west side of
Lake Jackson a man in an airboat
was spraying poison on all the grass
and foliage where the birds live and
eat. The air driving by was so toxic
I could barely breathe.
If you fish or swim in that lake,
beware! It's poisoned. Also, the
birds live and roost there every.
night. Don't enough people in
Sebring have cancer already?

Republicans want to see
President Obama fail
Editor:
I've been reading the newspapers
and watching the news reports on
TV about President Obama and his
stimulus package. Everyone that is
against the plan seems to have for-
gotten why we're in the position
we're in now, but no one wants to
put the blame where it really is.
When George W. Bush took
office from President Clinton, the
country was in great shape. People
were working and we were respect-
ed all around the world. Well, eight
years of Bush and a Republican
controlled Congress has us in this


predicament. And now that
President Obama has assumed
George W.'s mess, and is trying to
correct it, the Republicans want to
keep things like it is and give him a
hard time.
It appears the Republicans want
to see President Obama fail as did
their golden boys (John) McCain
and Bush, but what they fail to real-
ize is God has his hand on Obama's
presidency and there is nothing they
can do to stop it. So the best thing
for the nay sayers to do is get on
board and enjoy the ride back to
prominence and respect around the
world again.
For those of you that don't think
God had his hand in this, read
Judges 4th and 5th chapters?

The economic equivalent
of crack cocaine
Editor:
Is the U.S. banking and economic
system the same as or different than
the European or other world's bank-
ing economic system? The U.S.
banking system was modeled after
European models. It was Mayer
Amschel Rothschild of the
Rothschild banking family in
Europe that said, "Give me control
of a nations monetary system and I
care not who writes their laws." It
was Sir Josiah Stamp, former presi-
dent of the Bank of England, in the
1920s who said, "Banking was con-
ceived in iniquity and was born in
sin. The bankers own the earth, take
it away from them, but leave them
the power to create deposits, and


with the flick of the pen they will
create enough deposits to buy it
back again." Banks have literally
created dollars out of thin air with a
stroke of a pen and then they charge
interest on that which they have cre-
ated out of nothing.
The U.S. economy has roughly
$40 trillion of domestic debt. That
is everybody, all city, county, state
and federal governments, corpora-
tions, and yours and my mortgages
and credit card debts. (Our current
president is wanting to add another
$7.4 trillion to this debt.)
Now debt has to be serviced, it is
like a herd of cattle eating and
drinking everyday. So how do you
service debt? You do it with money.
So let's look at the money supply.
The broad base of money supply is
with everyone walking around with
money, checkbook money and sav-
ings account money is roughly
about a little over $8 trillion. So do
the math, subtract $8 trillion from
$40 trillion worth of debt and we
have a $32 trillion debt problem.
The debtors (you and me) have
been asked the impossible and that
is to pay back this debt. This is
where the Bible says "The borrower
is a servant to the .lender."
So how will this affect you and
your life? One of two things will
happen, we will have a collapse of
default; or two, the government will
have to print massive amounts of
new money and credit to keep the
game going. This is nothing but the
economic equivalent of crack
cocaine for the economy.

News-Sun * Wednesday, February 18, 2009


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
James langston describes some of the testing he was about to conduct Tuesday at the
County's asphalt plant. Langston was accompanied by officials from the Department of
Environmental Protection during the plant's first air testing day.

Asphalt plant running on methane


Continued from page 1A
"They got it resolved last Thursday after-
noon and today was the first day they could
actually do some productions," Wheeler said
Monday. "(Monday and Tuesday was) the
first full air emissions test."
Testing air emissions is required by the
Environmental Protection Agency.
The goal was to burn methane from the
landfill all day during the testing process.
"I'm ready for this to happen and I know
there are a lot of other people also," said
Kyle Green, superintendent of the Road and
Bridge Department. "This will kind of be the
turning point or the do or die for the methane
plant."
For Green's department, having the
asphalt plant is already paying off.
"We can make it and lay it chdAper that
what we can get from the private sector," he
said. "It is a little cheaper, but the accessibil-
ity and availability far outweigh the other
criteria."
He admitted that the price is still in the
range of how much he can get the asphalt
from the private sector, but the county will
be saving $4 or $5 a ton, or roughly $3,000
per mile, when the plant uses methane.
"It's just one of those good feelings. We
knew we could do it," Wheeler said about
being able to use the methane. "There were
some glitches, but Gencor engineers got it
worked out and it's running fine."
The methane from the landfill can easily
be used up in one day, but it is replenished
over time.


Board split on
Continued from page 1A
Edgar Stokes, was out for
eye surgery, the split vote
created a tie.
For lack of a majority,
the motion died and the
money was not forwarded.
Commissioners did
approve to accept a grant
from the state for $596,776,
which is directed to the 911
center, but not without
some discussion.
"The language in the
grant states the 'new facili-
ty,' and if we do not build
the new office building we
could create some issues,"
Carlson said.
Sheriff Susan Benton
approached the commis-
sioners and affirmed them


"We are able to shut down our flare the
night before and the concentration of
methane increased," Wheeler said. "Then
we draw it off during the day in the higher
concentration."
The plant is able to run at different pro-
duction speeds, further compensating for the
amount of methane available in one day.
"We can vary how many tons (of asphalt)
come out to match our landfill gas capacity,"
Wheeler said. "We can slow it down, adjust
it, and get the most from the landfill gas and
minimize the use of fuel oil."
The maximum rate of production is 200
tons per hour. That can be cut to 50 tons per
hour if necessary.
Asphalt consists of asphalt cement bond-
ed to sand, stone and "screenings," or very
coarse sand. The fuel is used to dry the
materials before they are bonded to the
asphalt cement.
Currently the landfill produces enough
methane to aid production of 1,060 tons of
asphalt per day, Wheeler said.
With just under 1,000 miles of paved
roads in Highlands County, the plant count
effectively be used to pave every road in the
county in three-year cycles.
"Typically you will get 20 to 25 years out
of a road," Wheeler said. "So if we wanted
to do it on a 25-year life cycle we would
need to pave 40 miles every year."
If the plant produced 650 tons of asphalt
each day it was open - enough to pave one
mile of road - it could operate less. than
once a week using methane as the major fuel
source.


money for HCSO, 911 center


that the grant was for a
"new 911 center" and did
not have to be specifically
tied to the new jail, but that
the grant application had to
have the plans included.
"I have to add the project
plans into the application,
and this commission
approved this," Benton
said.
But Carlson reaffirmed
that he was told that the
grant application did not
have to have to be tied to
the proposed new facility.
" I asked on two occa-
sions ... if this grant was
tied to this specific facility,
and I was told no. What I
am hearing now is that the
grant is tied directly to the
new facility. IP move we


accept the E-911 equipment
but strike reference to a
new facility," Carlson stat-
ed.
But his motion died for a
lack of a second, and
Maxcy made a second
motion to accept the appli-
cation as worded.
Bates seconded the
motion, and after some
questions directed at
County Attorney Ross
Macbeth, it passed.
"I guess you could
change the wording from
'the' facility to 'a' facility,
but you would have to
change your contract with
the state to do that. If we do
not build a facility, this

County going after stimulus money

and asked us to prioritize
them. That's what we did.
We do not know how much
of this will be funded, but
we have been in contact
with all the cities about this
and we need to act fast. We
are learning daily about this
project," Wright said.
"I talked yesterday with
Rob Miller from Sebring,
and this morning Sarah
Adelt from Avon Park
called me," said Ramone
Gavarette in response to
Stewart's questions about
the city communications.
"Avon Park has submit-
ted two sidewalk projects
that are ready to roll, and
they submitted the drainage
project for the airport and
one other project that do not
meet the federal criteria,"
Wright said.
Stewart stated that there
may have been a bit of con-
fusion about the communi-
cations.%
"There could have been
more clarity with Avon
Park. Their projects were
shovel ready. Regarding the
roads, it was their under-


standing that no local roads
could be placed on the list,"
Stewart said.
"We did the leg work on
this and knew (vhat projects
were eligible. Two repre-
sentatives from Avon Park
sat behind us yesterday, and
they had the opportunity to
do whatever they needed to
do," Wright said. "Federal
aid does include local
roads, but they have to be
on the federal aid list."
Although the commis-


sioners voted 4-0 to
approve Wright's current
list, they directed him to go
back and give all the cities
another opportunity to put
projects on the list the
county was sending to
DOT.
"We need to reach out to
the two small municipali-
ties again," directed
Stewart.
"I will contact them when
I leave this meeting,"
Wright said.

Green construction getting easier


Continued from page 1A
Linville used the slow time
to expand and enhance his
credentials.
He is a My Safe Florida
Home participating contrac-
tor, and one of the few LEED
Accredited Professionals in
the county. That means he is
certified to conduct energy
audits.
LEED (Leadership in
Energy and Environmental
Design) is a consensus effort,
coming from the building
industry itself with govern-
ment input, to create a
national set of standards for
green construction.
LEED also certifies indi-
viduals as inspectors, capa-
ble of doing energy audits.
Linville is accredited.
To be accepted into the
LEED program he had to sit
for an 80-question exam.
"The state (licensing exam)
took two days," Linville
said, "and the LEED test
took two hours - but it was
closed book and much hard-
er. You need 80 percent cor-
rect in order to pass." He said
he studied a year before sit-
ting for the exam, passing on
the first attempt.
"LEED presents a holistic
approach," he said, "starting
at the conceptual stage and
site selection. The key is
good design, it's the most


critical way to save energy -
for example, no windows on
the west side of the house.
"Green construction does-
n't have to cost more, espe-
cially as stringent as Florida
code is, you can-build green
at the same cost. Most homes
are cookie cutter (stamp
outs), the same lot by lot
regardless. The waste of
energy is huge."
Just weatherizing a home
can save thousands over the
long term, he said, "a little
capital investing for a guar-
anteed return. Dollars come
back in energy savings, like
lower bills and rebates from
the power company. I strive
to reduce the huge obsession
on electricity."
There are water heating
alternatives on the market, of
which solar hot water sys-
tems are only one, but their
savings can be substantial.
The U.S. Department of
Energy, for example, esti-
mates an average household
will spend more than $500 a
year to heat water with elec-
tricity in an 80-gallon tank.
Some solar heating systems
provide savings of 75 to 90
percent of that.
Linville added that govern-
ments continue moving in a
green direction.
The Florida Legislature is
expected to pass legislation
in March calling for new


public buildings to be 15 per-
cent more energy efficient.
More than $80 billion from
the $787 billion stimulus bill
is targeted to spending sup-
port (like grants and rebates)
and tax cuts for renewable
domestic energy, an
improved electrical grid, and
energy research and pro-
grams to reduce the use of
fossil fuels - for example,
helping weatherize homes or
federal buildings.
But Linville warns the
rebates and enticements
won't last forever. Ironically,
this might be the best time to
invest in green to save green.
Either way, there is a
growing consensus that mak-
ing conscious energy saving
decisions reverberates posi-
tively throughout the econo-
my. With the LEED system in
place there is now a way to
plan thoughtfully and meas-
ure results.
There are several Web sites
with useful information:
www.usgbc.org for informa-
tion about LEED;
www.dsireusa.org for infor-
mation about federal incen-
tives; and www.progressener
gy.com- click on balanced
future and then on energy
efficiency services for infor-
mation about electricity sav-
ings.

LEED will standardize green construction


Continued from page 1A
This makes it difficult for
the contractor - as well as
the consumer - to make
truly informed decisions.
The challenge was to come
up with a national standard,
and an agreed-upon method
in both setting the standard
and measuring it; as well as
creating a way of certifying
individuals to do the consult-
ing, building and inspecting.
Here in Florida the legisla-
ture began passing statutes in
1993 aimed at making con-
struction in the state more
environmentally sound, and
has continued to shape policy
ever since.
In its effort to standardize
green construction, the state
mandated that any public
building as of July 1,2008 -
a courthouse, a school or a
government center - would
have to be built using the
Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design Green
Building Rating System, cre-
ated by the U.S. Green
Building Council.
According to its official
Web site, the council is a
non-profit, membership
organization funded in 1993


"whose vision is a sustain-
able built environment within
a generation."
It says it has grown to
almost 18,000 member com-
panies and organizations, and
has evolved into a network of
78 local chapters, affiliates
and organizing groups.
LEED was developed by
volunteer committees from
across the country comprised
of professionals from every
aspect of development and
building - from concept
people to contractors to gov-
ernment officials.
With a goal of reaching a
consensus regarding what
was safe, effective and
affordable, the committees
met openly, consulted with
technical advisory groups
regarding the technology,
encouraged stakeholder input
and review, had members
vote on the rating system
when finalized, and provided
for an appeal process.
The result is a third-party
certification program and
nationally accepted bench-
mark for the design, con-
struction, and operation of
high performance green
buildings - commercial or


residential.
LEED hopes to bring, by
creating a structured system
and setting standards, volun-
tary order and protections to
an emerging field that is still
getting organized, is highly
technical, and can be confus-
ing.
At the same time LEED is
working to certify individu-
als in its rating system, so
they can be a resource to a
prospective builder or current
homeowner.
LEED is the only system
that requires third party
inspection post occupancy,
and final measurements.
Individuals certified in the
LEED systems as a LEED'
Accredited Professional will'
not only be able to advise in
terms of insulation values
and green options, for exam-
ple, but also in terms of ener-
gy rebate and point pro-
grams.
For example, a developer
who provides outlets for
hybrid or electrical cars; or a'
company that provides park-
ing for bicycles and a chang-
ing room with shower, may
receive points toward federal
or state tax credits.

Francisco.
Rollins notes in his Jurors Statement about
the newest addition for the visual arts to
Sebring, and all of Highlands County, the fol-
lowing.
"The Highlands MOTA is to be congratulat-
ed for deciding to initiate ART 2009, a juried
national two-dimensional competition.
Organizing and funding such an exhibition is
no small task. The staff and volunteers of the
Highlands MOTA deserve the appreciation
and recognition of the citizens of this fine

"It is always a great pleasure for me to have
the opportunity to jury an exhibition, especial-
ly when the exhibition is national in scope.
Such an exhibition provides a format to view
the work of artists from throughout the country
that otherwise I would likely not be able to
see."
When choosing work for an exhibition
Rollins first looks for artistic competence and
mastery of technique and process.
The exhibition will run through March 26
with museum open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tuesday and Fridays, from 1-4 p.m.
Wednesday and Thursdays and from noon to
3 p.m. Saturday. Admission is free.

HEALTH & NUTRITION


Should you take that multivitamin?


Dear Pharmacist
Suzy Cohen
Dear Pharmacist:
The television news said
that taking multivitamins
will not help me prevent
cancer or heart disease. I
take several supplements.
Have I been wasting my
money for years?
- W.M. Springfield,
Illinios
Answer: It's a bad game
they're playing. Like many
studies, this conclusion is
drawn from fake science and
then promoted to naive con-
sumers. That's not to say
that all supplements in any
amounts are good, or good
for you.
Eating superfoods and lots
of fresh organic produce is
better than taking multivita-
mins, but unfortunately,
today's foods are genetically
modified and/or grown in
mineral-deficient soil.
So I definitely advocate
high-quality nutrients, espe-
cially because diseases often
manifest from nutritional
imbalances. And nutrients
(not drugs) restore balance.
To learn how to pick high-
quality vitamins, read my
second book, Drug Muggers
which teaches you how to
pick good supplements and
get what you deserve. The
February (2009) issue of The
Archives of Internal
Medicine concluded that


Read the label on vitamin supplements to be sure you're getting high-quality ingredients.


multivitamins will not lower
one's risk for cancer, stroke,
blood clots or heart disease.
You've heard the old saying,
"Three strikes and you're
out!" Well ...batter up:
Strike 1: Multivitamins
,were not administered to the
participants in the study! No
joke, how do you measure
beneficial effects of multivit-
amins when you don't pro-
vide any? In this "study"
women only filled out ques-
tionnaires and said they were
taking vitamins.
Strike 2: Compliance was
not enforced. There's no way
to guarantee that women
took their vitamins daily,
weekly or ever. How can sci-
entists conclude that vita-
mins impact heart disease or
cancer when their partici-
pants are not compliant with
the regimen? Duh.
Strike 3: Some of the mul-


tivitamin brands were
garbage. How do I know?
Because the study did not
standardize the brand used,
or insist upon high quality
supplements. Women took
whatever they wanted; let's
face it, many consumers buy
supplements based on price
tag, not quality. Cheap vita-
mins use lousy forms of a
nutrient. For example, syn-
thetic beta carotene is not
good for you and studies
show it can increase cancer
and death rates in smokers.
Yet natural beta carotene has
anti-cancer benefits accord-
ing to many clinical trials.
See how misleading studies
could shorten your lifespan?
Research studies based on
inferior forms or isomers of
a nutrient are innately
flawed and therefore, con-
clusions are foul. Don't take
the pitch.


I bet the women consumed
the typical American diet
which is loaded with sugar,
artery-clogging fats, cancer-
causing nitrates and artificial
ingredients. No multivitamin
can offset that. In summary,
the message this study sends
is that natural nutrients are
bad for you, they are worth-
less and do not reduce your
risk for deadly diseases. The
unspoken message is that you
should only take pharmaceu-
ticals and other FDA-
approved lab-created chemi-
cals since clinical trials prove
.safety and efficacy. Believe
that and "You're Out!"

Austin Gaines had three hits, including a home run, as
SFCC trounced South Carolina Sumter, 13-1, Saturday in
Jacksonville.


Panthers


continue to roll


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SFCC capped off a lengthy
road trip Monday with a 16-2
win at Webber International
University.
Southpaw Andrew Barbosa
picked up his first win of the
season as the 6-foot, 8-inch
red-shirt sophomore looks to
rebound from a lost '08 sea-
son.
Pacing the ever-potent
offense in the Panthers (11-2)
latest gala of runs was Greg
Smith, a perfect 5-for-5 on
the night with four runs
scored.
Picking up- the power
potential, Jerry Neufang hit
his fifth and sixth homers of
the season and Austin Gaines
collected three hits and his
fourth home run in five
games to go with four RBI.
Former Sebring Blue
Streak Justin Tomlinson


added two hits and five RBI.
South Florida's early sea-
son roll kept its' momentum
and added a bit of prestige
Saturday with a win over
South Carolina Sumter in
Jacksonville.
Ranked 25th in the nation
in preseason NJCAA polls,,
the Fire Ants had moved up
that national rankings, as
high as 17th, after starting off
well.
So then what does it say
about SFCC that they rolled
over Sumter, 13-1?
"They are an outstanding
club," South Florida head
coach Rick Hitt said. "Our
guys were really looking for-
ward to getting to play
them."
The Panthers obviously
were anxious, as every spot
in the line-up collected a hit,

Devils, Streaks in Early Bird losses


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@ newssun.com
AVON PARK - The early
part of the baseball season,
as we all know, is filled with
hope, but also gives a first
look at what teams will have
to work with.
And though both Avon
Park and Sebring went down
to defeat in the opening
round of the Bill Jarrett Ford
Early Bird Tournament at
Charles, R. Head Field
Monday night, there is rea-


son for hope.
"We battled," Red

Mort Jackson, said.
"We had three guys

we had to do some

, In the nightcap of the
tourney's opening evening,
Sebring came out on the
short end of a 6-1 score to a
tough Lake Region Thunder

Which would explain the
five errors posted on the
scoreboard by game's end in
the 11-3 loss to the
Auburndale Bloodhounds.
That, coupled with the
matching total of five hits
for the offense, doesn't add
up to a positive outcome.
In fact, however, it was
'Avon Park that broke out on
top early, scoring once in the
first and answering the
'Hounds two in the third
with two more in the bottom
of the frame for a 3-2 lead.
But the volatile mix of
defensive miscues, control
problems and a tough
Auburndale team began the
trouble.
Three came across in the
fourth, one in the sixth and
five in the seventh broke it
open.
"We're young, we had
three sophomores on the
infield," Jackson said. "But
the bottom line is, they beat
us. No excuses, they got
behind and we gave it to
them. We just have to

"When they've got
scouts standing, here
in this cold," Blue
Streak .head coach
Hoppy Rewis said.
"You know the guy's
got to be pretty
good."


That guy would be
Thunder thrower Jacob
'Newberry, who held the
Streaks down throughout the
night.
Although senior Cody
Higgins started the game
with a single right back up
the middle, the rest of the
order wasn't fairing too well
against the rangy
right-hander who Lake
struck out 11.
Though over-
matched at first, suc-
cessive times Seb
through the order
saw the young
Sebring hitters get-
ting better looks at
Newberry.
In the fourth, Gus
Williams drew a walk with
two out and Cody Hoffner
singled sharply to right.
But Newberry came back
to strike out the next hitter
to end the threat.

gle in the fifth and, though

Dustin Lang would
also solve Newberry
for a hit in the sixth,
but in the end, the
one the scouts braved
the cool temperatures
for, prevailed.
"He overmatched
us for a little bit,"


Rewis said. "We've got a lot
of inexperience but we were
a lot better the last five
innings than we were the
first two, and that's the kind
of thing you. look for. To get
better every time you go out-
there."
A thought with which
assistant coach Buck Rapp
agreed.
"We're young with really


only Cody and Gus back as
regular starters from last
year," he said. "But we're
getting better and we'll be a
better team in May than we
are in February."
Which is what the early

Streaks take District Title


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun .com
ARCADIA - There were
some harrowing moments at
the end - missed front ends
of one-and-ones and a prema-
ture celebration being among
them - but the Sebring Sel
Blue Streaks captured
the District 10-4A title
for the first time since 5
'05 with a 53-49 win pai
over Palmetto
Saturday night. 4
Coming from
behind all night long,
Sebring was kept in the game
by 'Mighty' Joe Young as the
burly forward scored five of
the Streaks nine points in the
opening quarter.
But three's by Reggie Baity
and Ryan Huggins had the
Tigers up 12-9.


"We know they have some
shooters, especially that #23
(Baity)," Sebring head coach
Princeton Harris said. "We
were in a zone defense to
keep some pressure on the
outside. They made
bring some, but they were
missing some too. We
Q3 were going to stay the
same until things
metto changed, but they did-
n't."
19 It was still an uphill
climb, however, as
Donald Campbell
tickled the twine from
beyond the arc to move the
lead to 18-11 in the second.
But a Devin Clarke drive, a
Young move inside and a fol-
low-up dunk from Jewel
Campbell answered to get it


to within 20-17.
A trade of free throws
made it a 22-19 Tiger lead at
the half.
That lead was very short-
lived, though, as the Streaks
came out of the locker room
looking to take control.
Chris Grubb hit a jumper,
Jake Trussell scored under-
neath, Clarke connected from
the outside and Young
worked inside for consecu-
tive three-point plays.
"Joe (Young) is the type of
player who can take over a
game," Harris said. "I knew
they couldn't stop him
inside., so I told them to just
keep feeding it underneath."
Sebring added two more
hoops to the streak, with

Lady Streaks court win over Hardee


By DAN HOEHNE
"daniel.hoehhe@newssun.com
The Lady Blue Streaks of
the tennis courts got off to a
sw inging start with a 7-0
match-win over visiting
Hardee on Monday at Sun
'N Lake.
Upper-classmen Kelsie
Johnson, Alyssa Kariofyllis
and Kelsey Tucker showed
their experience in earning
wins at numbers 1, 3 and 4
singles while first-year var-
sity players Kaley Walter
and Shana Bassett stepped


right in with wins at num-
bers 2 and 5 singles, respec-
tively.
"Kaley (Walter) and
Shana (Bassett) were able to
funnell their nervous energy
into wins," head coach Jane
Hollinger said. "Overall, the
girls were excited about
their first regular season
match."
In mixing experience with
the first-timers, Johnson and
Walter teamed up to sweep
past Clara Durrance and
Amanda Porter in number 1I


doubles, 6-3. 6-3, while
Kariofyllis and Bassett also
won in two sets over Shelby
Durrance and Kayla Woods,
though a tad more of a chal-
lenge, 6-2, 7-6 (7-4).
The girls took to the road
for their second match,
heading to Clewiston,
Tuesday before returning
home to face Braden River

game. Tom Giownik, Duke
Hensley, Victor Rodriquez,
Kyle Saunders and, Don
Ward each had three hits,
with Rodriquez and Ward
having triples and Hensley
banging out two doubles for
the winners.
Don Ward and Paul Smith
combined to hold the
Schooni's team in check
from the mound.
Bob Fox was 3-for-3 with
a double and Paul
Stephenson and Darrell
Richards were each 3-for-4
for Schooni's.


Play on the other field
saw a very rare shut-out as
84-year old George Quay
pitched a 16-0 victory for
the Michelle Yates
Insurance team over Central
Security.
Quay gave up a total of
eight hits in the game.
From 1943 to 1946, the
Pottstown, PA native was one
of 325,000 Navy Seabees in
WW II - the Seabees usually
followed the first waves of
Marines ashore.
Quay and his fellow
Seabees island hopped
across the Pacific, quickly
building air strips, roads,
bridges, supply facilities,
bases, etc., frequently under
fire.
Quay moved to Avon Park
in 1987 and helped form the
Senior Softball league there
and then moved to Lake
Placid in 1993 and was one
of the founding members of
the Lake Placid Senior
Softball League.


His wife, Dorothy, is a
well-known artist with
many of her works in the
Lake Placid Caladium Arts
and Crafts Co-Op.
The offense of the
Insurers was led by Dave
Hollowy (4-for-4) and
Dusty Hensley, Ray
Heissenberg and George
Lavoie who were each 3-
for-4.
Hensley had two doubles
and a home run among his
hits while Heisenberg had
two doubles.
Richard Rivera had three
hits for Central Security
with five other players hav-
ing singles.
The losses by the two for-
mer first-place teams results
in a shake up of the stand-
ings with Lake Placid
Marine now leading the
league with a record ot 6--4
followed by Schooni's and
Central Security at 5-4,
Seminole Tire at 4-5 and
Yates Insurance at 4-7.

SPORTS SNAPSHOTS


WIN 5K
SEBRING, FL (Feb. 13, 2009) - Get
out your running shoes and dress out for
the third annual Wellness Is N (WIN) 5K
Run.
The annual event gives people the
chance to raise funds for their Highlands
County American Red Cross while
stretching their endurance and running
speed. Registration starts at 7 a.m.
Saturday, March 28, 2009, at Highlands
Hammock State Park, with a shotgun
start at 7:30 a.m.
Runners may preregister for $15 or
register the day of the event for $20. If
they raise $50 or more in pledges from
their community the run is free.
Last year's field had more than 80 par-
ticipants, thanks in part to holding the
run early in the day and earlier in the
year, when more people could partici-
pate. The local Red Cross decided to
keep the same tradition this year.
Red Cross volunteers will man an aid
station for thirsty or hungry runners at
the start/finish line. Bananas are courtesy
of L&D Produce in Sebring.
The run starts on Hammock Road in
the park near the CCC Museum area, fol-
lowing the paved drive-around path in
Highlands Hammock State Park, past the
old homestead, the Charlie Creek Trail,
and the amphitheater, before heading
back to the CCC Museum area.
Participants may run, jog, trot, or walk
finishing the course in a fast time or a
comfortable pace, as long as they get out
for some fun and exercise.
To register, download a form at polk-
countyfl.redcross.org or contact the .
Highlands Red Cross at (863) 386-4440
or hcarc@vistanet.net.
Send your form with fee or pledges to
Highlands Red Cross, 106 Medical
Center Ave., Sebring, FL 33870.
Sponsorships are still available for the
Run. Come forward and support your
local American Red Cross.
Tough economic times have reduced
financial support for the Red Cross, but
disaster responses continue. Local home
fires remain the most common Red Cross
disaster response.
Between July 1, 2007, and June 30,
2008, the Red Cross assisted 37 families
affected by local disasters in Highlands
County - almost all home fires. The
local Red Cross has helped another 14
Highlands County families since then.
Red Cross volunteers urge all families
to take precautions to prevent home
fires, check and maintain smoke detec-
tors, and to practice escape plans to
ensure all loved ones get out of a fire
safely.
In addition, the local office provides a
location to learn life-saving skills, which
we used often last year.
On two occasions in 2008, staff at
Avon Park Middle School saved students
from choking using skills they learned
from the Red Cross.
You never know when an emergency
may occur, but knowing what to do can
save a life.

back.
Ten unanswered points
brought them back to within
one before Grubb launched
one from downtown.
Palmetto answered with a
three of its' own.
Young scored inside, but
then Donald Campbell drove
for two.
Sebring got a little distance
when Grubb canned another


three and then turned a steal
into two.
But then he missed the
front end of a one-and-one
and the Tigers scored to
again keep it tight.
Again Grubb was fouled,
as it was that time of the
game, on the inbounds and
again the first of the bonus
shots misfired.
"He told me that he wanted
to be the one throwing it in,"
Harris said. "And that shows
a player that knows himself
and knows the situation."
Grabbing the rebound after
Grubb's miss, Tevin Toney
was then fouled and sank his
two free throws, sending the
Blue Streaks hopping in cele-
bration.
It turned out to be a
momentary brain freeze,
however, as Palmetto


inbounded the ball then sent
it downcourt quickly on a
fast break to pull to within
51-49.
But J.C. Howard took the
inbounds pass, from Grubb,
took the foul and connected
on the clinchers.
"It feels real good after the
drought," Harris said of the
four years since the last dis-
trict championship. "It's dif-
ferent and I don't know that-
this is better, but this is a dif-
ferent team, a much scrappier
team that had to work real
hard to get this."
Young lead the way with
17 points with Grubb right
behind with 16.
The team now has a chance
to avenge the Lady Blue
Streaks regional loss as they
will host Lakeland Kathleen
Thursday, Feb. 19.


Panthers proving potent


Continued from 1B
racking up 13 for the game.
Austin Gaines. and Ryan
Williams each homered,
representing the big blows,
with Gaines going 3-for-4
to lead the hit parade.
Freshman Adam
Simmons moved his record
to 2-0 on the hill, going six
innings, striking out five
and giving up a lone earned


run.
Matt Fugelsang pitched
the final three innings to
recQrd the save.
"It was a great challenge
for us," Hitt said. "The
weather changed our
schedule two or three
times, but our guys just
stayed locked in and
played very well. The chal-
lenge now is to get out of


bed in the morning and try
to put together another
quality effort."
A few more efforts like
this, and the national rank-
ings are likely in the off-
ing.
SFCC is back in action
tonight as they host 9th
ranked, in state, Central
Florida with a 5 p.m. start
at Panther Field.


Tigers' Gary Sheffield trying

out new approach


By LARRY LAGE
Associated Press
LAKELAND - Gary
Sheffield is taking a new
approach as he enters his
21st season in the majors:
He wants to cut back on
controversial remarks.
The Detroit Tigers desig-


nated hitter was true to his
word Tuesday. He declined
comment before the team's
first full-squad workout.
A year ago, Sheffield
criticized his former agent,
Scott Boras. The slugger
said he would have more to
say when a dispute


between them was settled.
An arbitrator decided in
October that Sheffield
owed Boras $550,000 for
eliminating a 2004 option
that allowed him to become
a free agent.
Sheffield is one homer
from reaching No. 500.


New showdown after


Dubai blocks Israeli player


By BRIAN MURPHY
Associated Press .
DUBAI, United Arab
Emirates (AP) -
Organizers of a women's
tennis tournament said
Tuesday that security fears
were behind the decision to
bar an Israeli player - a
move that could force
another showdown when
the men's play begins next
week.
The snub brought swift
denunciations from the
,WTA
and warnings that it
could consider scratching
Dubai. from its calendar.
The Tennis Channel can-
celed plans to televise the
championships in protest.
Tuesday's statement by
the Dubai Tennis
Championships - citing
fan anger at Israeli's recent
incursions into' the Gaza
Strip - was the first
detailed explanation of the
last-minute visa denial for
Shahar Peer, who qualified
as the 48th-ranked player
in the world. Monday's
WTA rankings listed her
45th.
But the United Arab
Emirates, which is trying to
become a showcase for
world-class sports, come
under increasing pressure
with the men's field as
Israeli doubles specialist
Andy Ram hopes to be in


the draw on Sunday.
Ram's lawyer, Amit
Naor, told The Associated
Press that the player is cur-
rently in Marseilles,
France, and awaiting word
if he will be allowed into
Dubai. Ram is ranked No.
7 in the world in doubles.
"Andy wants to play,
he's not interested in all the
Qther stuff," he said. "He's
not looking for trouble,
he's looking to play ... we
thought politics was
already out of sports."
Ben Nichols, a marketing
official for the men's and
women's tennis tourna-
ments in Dubai, said organ-
izers were not aware of
Ram's visa status.
The Association of
Tennis Professionals, which
runs the men's tour, issued a
statement saying it was
awaiting "an official deci-
sion" on Ram's visa.
"Clearly this is an oppor-
tunity for the UAE to make
the right decision," the ATP
said. Ram seeks to play in
Dubai with doubles partner
Kevin Ullyet of Zimbabwe.
The UAE - which does
not have diplomatic rela-
tions with Israel - could
face setbacks in hosting
other major sports events if
the WTA and other federa-
tions grow skittish over the
prospect of Israeli athletes
being blocked.


The $2 million Dubai
Tennis Championships
includes all top 10 women's
players.
A statement from the
tournament organizer,
Dubai Duty Free, said
Peer's "presence would
have antagonized our fans"
because of the attacks in
Gaza, which left about
1,300 Palestinians dead, at
least half of them civilians,
according to Gaza health
officials.
Thirteen Israelis were
killed, including three
civilians before a tentative
cease-fire halted fighting
on Jan. 18.
The tournament state-
ment said there was con-
cern about protests, boy-
cotts and threats to Peer's
"well being."
Peer was scheduled to
play Monday, but was told
her visa was denied late
Saturday as she prepared to
travel from Malaysia to the
UAE.
"We do not wish to
politicize sports, but we
have to be sensitive to
recent events in the region
and not alienate or put at
risk players and many ten-
nis fans of different nation-
alities that we have here in
the UAE," said the state-
ment, read to reporters by
tournament director Salah
Tahlak.

It is 12:30 p.m., Tuesday,
Feb. 17 - Michael Jordan's
birthdaS by the way -.and I
wait with anticipation the
Alex Rodriguez press con-
ference.
It will be his first en
masse meeting with the press
at large since his privately-
held, though recorded, con-
fession with ESPN's Peter
Gammons last Monday.
Rather, it will be the
media's first crack at raking
Rodriguez over the coals,
pressing harder, digging
deeper to get more full
answers, more direct admis-
sions and explanations.
This is what it's come to -
spring training getting
underway and we're await-
ing a potential public ston-
ing.
Sure, he deserves a good
chunk of it and I hope my
brethren in the press corps
come at him full bore - oh,
the perverse pleasures we
can take from this madden-
ing and saddening era.
But I got a bit of a
reprieve this morning as I
was scanning the Associated
Press wires.
In other training camp
news, this out of Lakeland at


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne


the Detroit Tigers camp,
Gary Sheffield has
announced he's turning over
a new leaf, resolving to be
less controversial.
In the press release, it also
notes that he's entering his
21st season in the major
leagues.
Now he's turning over a
new leaf?
It took 20 years of self-
created controversy and a
litany of new addresses for
him to think, "hey, maybe
this isn't the best way to
approach things?"
Perhaps the last straw was
him unabashedly saying that
he was going to get things
taken care of with his
estranged agent, the oh so


popular Scott Boras (also theL1
agent of you know who),
only to have a ruling go
against him to where he
ended up paying Boras more
than half-a-million to settle
their dispute.
I guess I'm just glad that f
these aren't my only choices .
for news from the sports
world.
While they interrupt the
hope of spring; they are only
temporary - and for now
they don't effect my favorite,
teams.
I can anxiously look for-
ward to the upcoming sea-
sons for the Cubs and Rays
and keep myself busy with
our local junior college and
high school teams.
A slight part of me would
love to be on the firing line
facing A-Rod, now about 45
minutes from now.
But a larger part of me is
glad to be where I am -
away from the fray, where I
can still look past the clutter
and enjoy what sports should,
really be about.

American Legion
Unit 69
AVON PARK - The
Avon Park Sons of the
American Legion Squadron
69 was proud to donate
$200 to Veterans Council
of Highlands County to
benefit veterans assistance
programs, by purchasing
that amount in tickets to
help with their fundraiser.
Squadron Commander Al
Klinger said, "It was a
pleasure for their squadron
to help with the fundraiser
and hopes that the Veterans
Council has much luck in
selling all their tickets."
The tickets are $10 each
and the winner will go with
Princess Dianne Tours to
Biltmore Estate and
Ashville, N.C., for a five-
night tour. All proceeds
stay in Highlands County
for local veterans.

Church of Nazarene takes


Avon Park landscape honors


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - When
Evangelist Gloria Files spoke
at the Church of the
Nazarene, she had no idea
how much she had influenced
the congregation. When she
passed away in 2008, the
church members, under the
guidance of Cheri Smith,
planted a garden in her mem-
ory.
Files had a beautifully
landscaped- yard and loved
plants. The congregation
thought "Gloria's Garden"
would be a fitting remem-
brance. The garden was dedi-
cated at a tribute and memo-
rial celebration in October
2008.
"Gloria's Garden" sits in
the courtyard between the
buildings on the church cam-
pus and is visible from Main
Street.
There is a large variety of
plants in the small area,
including liriope, chrysanthe-
mums, lantana, begonias,
roses, impatiens, poinsettias,
pentas, red sister cordyline,
porterweed, japonica and
holly bushes.
Along the perimeter of the
building are Indian
Hawthorne, juniper and
Italian cypress trees.
A planting at the sign for
the church contains peace.
lilies and geraniums. There
are several pieces of drift-
wood placed amid the plants
and a bench is provided.
. When asked how she
decided on the plants to be
used in the landscape design,
Smith said she just selected
plants that she liked.
Many of those plants
turned out to be plants that
attracted butterflies.
The "Garden" was recom-
mended for the Yard of the
Month award, which was pre-
sented to Smith.

When ,we drove through a "black

our car doors. Was the fear rooted in
prejudice'? I don't think so.
I was afraid of some white people,
too; but I probably thought race played
into my fear of blacks more than it did.
If I'd driven through high-crime white
neighborhoods, I would have been
taught to lock my doors through those,
too.
Why say this? Some of us have yet
to reject old beliefs about race, religion
and politics in order to embrace new
ones that can finish our work of unity.

we connect the black and white dots to

real is worth building on.

Dear Abby: My elderly
mother lives in a rural area.
Luckily, she is surrounded
by wonderful neighbors who
enable her to continue living
in her home without assis-
tance. They shop for her,
maintain her lawn, do
handyman repairs, cook for
her and regularly check on
her well-being.
Unfortunately, after being
discharged from a recent
hospital stay, Mama discov-
ered that one of her "trusted"
neighbors has been using her
credit card to pay their utili-
ties. She is heartsick. She ,,
has taken the necessary steps
to cancel the credit card, but
now is conflicted about the
best way to handle such a
sensitive issue.
Abby, is there a way for
everyone .to save face in this
situation?
- Love Thy Neighbor
Dear L.T.N.: I hope you
realize that what you have
described is more than an �
embarrassment. It is elder
abuse and fraud.
With one glaring excep-
tion, your mother's neigh-
bors are angels. However,
they have shouldered a
responsibility - seeing that
your mother is cared for -
that really belongs to your
family. If you cannot person-
ally see to it that she gets the
help she needs to live inde-
pendently, you should con-
tact your state's Area
Agency on Aging or'
Department of Social
Services and arrange for *
someone who is bonded to
do it.
A social worker can 'help
your mother report this mat-
ter to the police in a way
that she will not be embar-
rassed and that may help her
recover the funds that were
stolen.

Dear Abby: I am at my
wits' end with my 9-year-old
son, "Zane." After his
Wrestling practice I tell him
to take a shower. He either
flat-out refuses or makes
excuses to prolong not tak-
ing one and then refuses. A
few times I have had to per-
sonally bathe him. Zane
doesn't brush his teeth regu-
larly and barely changes his
underwear. I don't know
what to do to get him to take
care of his personal hygiene.
Please give me some advice.
- Tanya in North
Lima, Ohio
Dear Tanya: One effec-
tive way to get a child to
live by the rules is to estab-
lish them and consistently
enforce them. If you are
unable to get through to
Zane, perhaps his wrestling
coach can impress upon him
the importance of personal
hygiene.
When Zane returns from
wrestling practice, inform
him that dinner will not be

Dear Abby: When dining

Dear Jami: Food servers

Eating Well
FAMILY FEATURES


Can changing how you eat change your life? If you're one
of the nearly 75 million Americans who have diabetes
or pre-diabetes, it can.
According to the Centers for Disease Control A
(CDC) diabetes is a group of diseases marked by high levels of
blood glucose resulting from the body not producing or properly
using insulin, a hormone that converts sugar, starches and other h.
food into energy needed for daily life. The good news is that
diabetes can be managed with diet, exercise and medication (if
needed). Some easy-to-follow meal planning tips include:
* Veg Out: Choose from the rainbow of colors available to
maximize vegetable variety.
* Fiber Up: Look for foods that are fiber-rich, such as oat- . -
meal, fruit and fiber-enriched pasta. ..
* Eat Lean: Choose skinless turkey or chicken breast, fish - .'
and lean cuts of meat (identified by "loin" or "round"). ' .
* Drink Free: Drink water and calorie-free beverages .
instead of those sweetened with sugar.
* Be Consistent: Three meals with an occasional healthy
snack help keep
blood glucose regulated and prevent overeating.
"Keeping blood glucose levels as close to normal as possi-
ble is the main goal for people with diabetes. And food choices
certainly play a significant role in that," said Tami Ross, RD,
LD, CDE and 2008 Diabetes Care and Education Diabetes
Educator of the Year. "The good news
is that there are now more food products on the market than e er -
before to help people with
diabetes in their quest to maintain blood glucose levels without
sacrificing taste."
One such product is Dreamfields pasta, which has twice the fiber,
fewer digestible carbohydrates and a 65 percent lower glycemic
index than traditional pasta. Its delicious taste and nutritional benetivs
make it a flavorful, nourishing pasta that's good for the entire L:imil\
To create a healthful eating plan for your individual
needs, consult with a qualified health care professional
such as a registered dietitian or certified diabetes educa-
tor. For more information on diabetes visit www.dia-
betes.org. For delicious pasta recipes, visit www.dream-
