SEBRING There were no
injuries Saturday after a two-car
wreck in downtown Sebring left two
cars, a utility pole and a tree with sig-
nificant damage.
A four-door Buick T-boned a teen
driving a Chevrolet truck when it
failed to stop at a stop sign at the
intersection of Pomegranate'Avenue
and North Franklin Street at about 11
a.m.
The Second Downtown Historic
Sebring Crafts Festival detoured traf-
fic from The Circle, leading both'
drivers to the side streets.


With his usual route to U.S. 27
blocked, Sebring High School senior
Travis Makris, 18, headed west on
Pomegranate Avenue.'
"I saw the road. blocked off so I
came through here,"' he said.
The driver of the Buick, Sebring
winter resident Robert Hollinger, was
on his w ay to the crafts festival when
the truck shot across his car.
The men were shaken up by the
accident but not hurt. NMalris was tak-
ing his friend to work and Hollinger
had his wife in the passenger seat.

Unemployment
rate climbs to 9.2
percent locally
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newvssn .coin
SEBRING 'According to
Roger Hood 'of- Heartland'
Work force, both > local and,
. state unemployment jurnmed a
full percentage point in
January of 2009
I-ghlands Count.'s unem-
ployment rate rose to 9.2 per-

December of 2008. while
state figures rose to 8.6 per-
cent.
"These are the' highest
numbers that I can ever
remember seeing," said
Heartland Workforce
Executive Director, Roger
Hood.
With over 800,000 workers
out of a job statewide,
Highlands County's 4,017
may not seem a large number,
but according to Hood, the
local unemployment level is
underestimated.
"There are a greater num-
ber of local residents out there
seeking agricultural jobs right
now. If it was not for the truck
bed agriculture out there right
now, we would be in the dou-
ble. digits. And we have no"
idea how many people are no
longer eligible for unemploy-
ment who have dropped from
the roles or how many are
underemployed," Hood
added.
The state's number is the
highest the seasonally adjust-
ed, nonagricultural jobless
rate has been in more than 16
years since September
1992, when it hit 8.9 percent.
Florida's January rate also
was a full percentage point

figure for that month.

SEBRING When
Sebriri,- Police Department
Officer John Garrison arrest-
ed Blanca Sevilla, he had no

was involved in a multi-mil-
'lion dollar organized retail
theft ring.
She wasi allegedly caught
shoplifting $83 of baby for-

Winn-Dixie in the Sebring
Square.
The investigation into
what Polk County Sheriff's,
Office officials are calling
"Operation Hot Milk" began
on Oct. 11, 2008 during a
traffic stop.
During the traffic stopi'
deputies determined th14
seven occupants of the cat-

Through further investigation,
and interviews, detectives-
learned there was additional

to the motel and located two
'vehicles in the parking loi

arrested six more suspects.
The 13 suspects allegedly

Watch your water: Drought drags on in its third year


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING While sunny days
are wonderful for play, the drought
drags on. It is now in its third year.
Authorities at the city utilities
department, Southwest Florida
Water Management District, and the
county extension office hope people
keep that in mind every time a tap is
turned on.
Lack of rain and hard freezes
have left Highlands County tinder-
box dry and at high risk for brush
fires.
Even more troubling is the fact
the long-term lack of rain has left
the aquifers below normal.
According to the water manage-
ment district's latest monthly
report, southwest Florida gets 80
percent of its water supply from
aquifers underground layers of
sand and rock that hold water.


Historically at this time of year,
aquifer levels in Highlands
County's region fluctuate between 0
and 8-plus feet depending on condi-
tions.
As of Feb. 25, however, they are
at negative 3.13 feet.
February typically brings an
average of 2.66 inches of rain. This
year February only saw half an
inch.
Put into context, the area's annu-
al precipitation historically aver-
ages 52.50 inches, but in 2006, the
area saw only 42.28 inches; in 2007
only 38.53 inches; and in 2008 only
47.37 inches.
Lake levels along the Lake
Wales Ridge have fallen 4.02 feet.
Given the seriousness of the situ-
ation, water restrictions remain in
effect at least through June 9 for. the
use of water from public and private
utilities, wells and surface water


Jupiter Images
sources, like rivers ponds, or lakes.
Lawn and landscape watering
remain limited, to once a week.
Properties under two acres in size
may only water before 8 a.m. or
after 6 p.m. Properties two acres or
larger may only water before 10
a.m. or after 4 p.m.
Addresses ending with 0 or 1 may
water on Monday; 2 or 3 on
Tuesday; 4 or 5 on Wednesday; 6 or
7 on Thursday; 8 or 9 on Friday.


SWFWMD also wants to remind
everyone to adjust their sprinkler
timers to account for today's time
change.
The city of Sebring's utilities
department has a selection of pam-
phlets and hand-outs also avail-
able from the water management
district that describe ways to
check and fix leaks, and otherwise
save water.
Little things like shutting off the
tap while brushing one's teeth, or
timing showers can save significant
amounts of water, and money, over
a year's time.
Showers, for example, typically
use five gallons of water per
minute. Flushing a toilet also uses
five gallons of water.
Washing dishes by hand uses four
gallons a minute, while running a
full dishwasher uses 12 gallons a
load.


Avon Park's Main St.

CRA following up on,

smaller projects


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK The
Avon Park Main Street
Community Redevelop-
ment Committee met on
Thursday and decided to
wrap up some of its projects
before moving on to some-
thing else.
"We wanted to follow up
on some of the small proj-
ects we are working on and
get them finished" said
chairman Devon
Donaldson.
The Main Street
Committee asked interim
director C.B. Shirey ,to do
some research on the status
of a couple of projects that
have seemed to have drop
into the cracks between
larger projects in the dis-
trict.
'The city council added
Interim CRA Director to
Shirey's resume last week
until someone is found to
serve in that position.
Shirey already holds the


titles of Airport Director and
Director of Planning and
Zoning for Avon Park.
"Not a bunch of big excit-
ing things, but we have sev-
eral appearance items out
there that make an impact,"
Donaldson said.
The projects 'Donaldson
asked Shirey to bring the
committee up to speed on
included. CRA money set'
aside to assist with refur-
.bishing the sidewalks on
South Lake Avenue, light
repair and globe replace-
ment on the Mall, signs in
parking lots and trees to be
planted along Central
Avenue.
Donaldson and crew also
directed fellow committee
member Wayne McFarland
to get an early start on
Octoberfest.
"We had a lot of success
with that' last year, and we
wanted -to get started on
vendors and a live band for
this year," Donaldson
added.

just minutes after it hap-
pened, but Hollinger's wife
was slow to get out of the
car.
Later she was walking
around, still shaken up, her
husband said.
"Fortunately no one was
hurt," Makris said.
Hollinger was surprised
at the damage. This was his
first car accident.
"None of uis were going
that fast," he recalled.
The Buick impacted the
driver's side door of the
truck and the momentum
carried them through the
intersection in a northwest,
direction, over a light pole
and eventually coming to a
stop against a tree.
"The police said I might
have stayed on the gas, I
don't know," Hollinger
said. "It happened so fast."
Hollinger and his wife
were both wearing their
seat belts. "We always do,"
he said.
Makris was issued a tick-
et by the Sebring Police
Department for failure to
obey a traffic control
device.
According to Deputy
Chief Mike Roberts of the
Sebring Fire Department,

time the light pole at that
intersection was knocked
down during an accident.

When I read the article:
in the News-Sun about
the power plant, well
here it goes: When the':
economy is so bad,
why are you thinking
of spending so much
money on the old elec-:
tric-power plant. I
would think the monies
could be spent on
other projects that
would benefit the good
people of Sebring. Just
the thought of spend-
ing $20,000 on just
glass is just nonsense.
The only just thing is
to sell the property, or
wait and tear it down
when times are better
and then sell it, but to
do something-now is
just, well you know,
crazy. There is no real
historical value in it.
It's just an old used
plant of no value, so
let's move on and use
the money elsewhere.
I hope the city fathers
use the right judgment-
on this issue.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL

Some county employees have shown

they can't be trusted with our money


recent fuel audit report showed
that some of those entrusted with
taxpayer money are not good
stewards.


After 16 months of data
collection, the Clerk of
Courts internal audit showed
that at least $384,000 of tax-
payer money was misused or
lost.
And, because of a lack of
care, the actual number is
much larger, and may never
be discovered.
The audit revealed 13 find-
ings that pointed out a lack of
care with taxpayer money.
Misuse of keys, systems
left on manual override, a
lack of proper accounting,
and an overall careless disre-
gard for county policies were
all pointed out in the report.
When you diligently pay'
your property taxes and sales
taxes and whatever other tax
,you are subjected to, it is
frustrating to hear that your
government may have to
. raise' more taxes because of
budget shortfalls.
Especially when some of
those shortfalls are due in
some measure to corruption
and the mishandling of the
-. taxpayer trust.
. Now, $384,000 may not
seem like. a lot in a world


where trillions are thrown at
banks to keep them afloat,
but think of the jobs that
could have saved at the coun-
ty level alone this year.
The ripple effect caused by
that lack of good stewardship
is astounding:
With that amount, some
government 'hiring freezes
could have been averted; pos-
sibly 10 or more jobs.
The people who could
have had those jobs could
have bought houses, keeping
the construction Workers, real
estate agents, and others at
their jobs.,
A share of $384,000 could
have helped local retailers
and restaurants, keeping
more people at those jobs as
well, who would in turn have
contributed to the spending
cycle.
That amount could have
kept 10 or more of those peo-'
,ple working instead of stand-
ing in line to get unemploy-
ment benefits.
A good government stew-
ard understands that the
money put under its care
impacts more than just a few


gallons of fuel.
A good steward under-
stands that they are being
held to a higher standard
because their negligence
impacts lives..
Yes, it sounds a little harsh
to lay all this on the shoul-
ders of those wh'o work in
small government, but they
are the ones who must be
held to a higher standard
because they supposed to be
good stewards.
One mistake is understand-
able.
But it does not stand to
reason that those in using the
fuel depots would be so
inconsiderate of their respon-
sibilities as to create the
amount of mistakes that were
discovered and reported.
If you steal gas from a
retail'store, you are prosecut-
ed, when you steal gas from
the county, you cost others
their livelihood.
Of course, not all govern-
ment employees are negli-
gent, but the amount of mis-
takes pointed out during the
last audit report makes one
wonder where those people
work.
Be careful how you use
those tax dollars in our small
government because. your
job could depend, on them
too.

I've been cutting back on
my television watching. At
least in the sense I'm watch-
ing broadcast television. My
watching of DVDs has
admittedly increased.
This is not a "television is
evil" column, I have some
favorite shows and enjoy
watching them. More on that
in a minute. What this is is a
"not watching as much
news" column.
Normally I'm a news
junkie, This goes along with
being a political junkie. I
usually stay on top of this
stuff, reading about it and
'watching Fox News.
But I've been cutting back
on that lately. I even missed
President Obama's speech to
Congress, something almost
unheard of for someone like
me.
Why am I avoiding all
this? My reason is simple: I
have enough reasons to be
depressed.
People on both sides of
the political spectrum have
been busy trashing the econ-
omy. Doom and gloom are
the theme of the day. Listen
to enough of this and you'll
be tempted to crawl into a
hole and pull the hole in
after you, certain that we're
all going to .die.
Like I said, I don't need
that. I'm not saying things
are great in the country at
the moment the economy
is something to be concerned
about. So is the president's
plan to socialize medicine in
this country and all the usual
worries I have about this
country and how morally it
seems to be going downhill.
But I really don't want to
wallow in that news. There's
a lot of it out of my control,
such as the stock market and
Congress (oh, if I could con-
trol Congress for one day ...
but that's another column).
As far as my personal
finances go, I'm doing what
I always do let Don worry
about,it. He's way better at it
than I.am. Since I'm way,
better at technology then he
is, it balances out.
While I've given up on
most news, I still watch
some television. While I do
enjoy DVDs I am also
watching a few television

'Washington: Stop
spending our money
Editor:
A personal letter to all the big.
spenders in Washington D.C.
SPlease stop spending our savings
and-our money for two generations
to come. How dare you spend
without discretion and without our
permission as U.S. taxpayers?
,Last I knew our government is
."Of the people., By the people and
For the people," according to' our
Constitution and Bill of Rights.
4 You are ignoring our Rights totally.
Your spending cannot even be cor-
Srected. What are you thinking?
Each family may be in debt for
more than $50,000.
There is no common sense for
j going deeply in debt to get out of
debt. Government and debt is the
Problem. Your new proposals will
1 control all that we do and all that
we have. We elected you to help
S| our nation as a bona fide servant of
the people of the United States, but
I you have ignored this purpose in
order t9 have great power and con-
trol over all of us.
The principle of paying our own
way and being responsible for our
own mistakes has been taken away
I from us and from corporations.
SWhat has happened to our dollars?
We want to take charge of our
own earned funds and our own
i health plans. We only want credit
Sfor a very limited time and pur-
pose. We may need credit for
homes and cars and for 30-day
plans that are affordable.
We have seen our dollar decline,
taxes increase and banks fail. Bail-
outs are not the answer. Learning
to live within our means individu-
ally and in the government is the
lesson to be learned.
, Your appetite for total power is
frightening everyone.


Stop the spending. Let the mar-
kets correct themselves. Let
Americans provide for themselves
again. We need to produce nearly
all of our needs here in America.
Welfare does not make for great
Americans. It makes us weak and
dependent. We will not allow this
to continue. Americans help each
other. We cannot do this if you take
away all of our assets.
Conservatives, please speak up,
and contact your
Congressmen/women and Senators
and local elected officials to stop
the spending if you agree that put-
ting a stop to bail-outs is what we
need.
Please contact: President Obama
(202-456-1111); Senator Bill
'Nelson (202-224-5274);
Congressman Mel Martinez (202-
224-3041); Congressman Tim
Mahoney (202-225-5792); Senator
Collins (202-224-2543); Senator
Dodd (202-224-2823) and Senator
Snowe (202-224-5344).

German Fest
benefits veterans
Editor:
I would like to personally thank
.all of the local sponsors who
recently made donations to the
Men's Auxiliary. The Men's
Auxiliary hosted a German Fest -
Deck Party on Feb. 22 in an effort
to help support the VFW Post 4300
and our veterans, offering German
food, entertainment and door
prizes.
Our biggest sponsor was The
Home Depot, which donated a gas
grill that was raffled at the event. I
can not thank the management and
staff at The Home Depot enough,
for their generosity. A special thank
you goes to Four Points by
Sheraton of Sebring Chateau Elan,
Chicanes Restaurant and Bar,
.Stuart at Classic Car Depot,
Yianni's Prime Choice Restaurant
and The Sunset Grille for their
generous support.
Donations from Ramona at
Circle Salon, Sweetbay Super
Market, Publix's Super Market at
the Fairmount Plaza, Winn-Dixie,
Sandy from Sandy's Circle Caf6,
Caddy Shack Bar and Grill, and
The Olive Garden Italian
Restaurant helped to make this


event a successful one.
On behalf of the Men's
Auxiliary, the VFW Post 4300, the
veterans, the men and women who
serve and have served in the
Armed Forces to keep our country
free and safe, thank you for your
continued support.

Many help with 34th
annual barbecue
Editor:
The West Sebring Volunteer Fire
Department is thankful for our
community members for their sup-
port at our 34th annual barbecue
held on Saturday, Feb. 21. We
appreciate the donations from the
community especially in these try-
ing economic times.
The charge per dinner was $5
each and the department does not
make money on the dinners but
rather holds the barbecue as a way
to give back to our community;
which has so generously given to
us. The winner of the 50/50 raffle
was Robert Teeter with a prize of
$92. Faye Tirpak won the raffle for
a $100 Walmart gift card and Jeff
Henderson won the $100 gasoline
card to Race Trac.
The department thanks their
sponsors: The News-Sun, Cohan
Radio Network, Genpak, Publix,
Sam's Club, Sysco, Walmart,
Winn-Dixie as well as the count-
less volunteers, members, board
members, Aeromed and The Print
Shop for their help and support.
We couldn't have done it without
you! Thank you once again for
helping to make our community
event a success!

shows. Top three at the
moment are "Bones,"
"House," and "Battlestar
Galactica." For the sake of
these shows I'm not ready to
give. up my cable.
Then there's the whole
conversion thing that we
kept hearing about. I didn't
notice a lot of difference
since we have cable, but I
worried that because most of
the televisions we have don't
use a box to access it that
we'd have trouble. So far we
appear to be all right at
least I can still get the chan-
nels I want.
But the conversion from
analog to digital drove at
least one Joplin man over
the edge. The 70-yea-r-old
man lost his cable and then
found he couldn't figure out
how to get the converter box
to work.
So he decided to shoot the
messenger. In other words,
his television. Police came
along and arrested him for
unlawful discharge of a
firearm. Apparently his wife
told someone her husband
had been drinking.
I'm not without some
sympathy here. I've dealt
with uncooperative electron-
ics in my time, and while
I've never been tempted to
shoot the devices I have con-
sidered the liberal use of a
baseball bat.
Maybe the man had
watched too much news,
which caused him to drink. I
don't drink alcohol, but I
suspect it wouldn't be very
helpful to work on technolo-
gy while impaired. At least
that explanation makes sense
to me.
So if you're feeling like
shooting your television,,
maybe it's time to cut back
on your news watching. I'd
recommend a few episodes
of '.'House," "Bones," or
"Battlestar Galactica." They
work for me.

Multi-million dollar baby

formula theft ring broken


Continued from page 1A
across the country because
it is a high dollar item with
a ready market and in a lot
of stores it is unsecured on
the shelves," Lethbridge
said.
It is a problem in the
county, but the HCSO is
not sure how big of a prob-
lem it is.
"I suspect in the cases
where the suspects are not
getting caught by store
security, the stores are not
making the reports,".
Lethbridge said. "So we
know the whole scope of
the problem."
Investigation into the
theft ring resulted in 21
arrests for stealing baby
formula from six different
counties, including
Highlands, and transport-
ing it out of state. J

The investigation
On Oct. 16, 2008, a
PCSO patrol deputy made a
traffic stop on a black
Honda after he saw it leav-
ing a storage facility.
The driver had a sus-
pended license and was
placed under arrest.
Searching ,the car, the
deputy found baby formula
that was later verified as.
stolen, a map of store loca-
tions, and tally sheets used
to count stolen formula, the
press release said.
A search of the storage
unit belonging to the driver
of the Honda allegedly
revealed 900 cans of baby
formula valued at $17,500.
The PCSO detectives'
determined this was only
the tip of the iceberg and
notified the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcefiment and Federal
Bureau of Investigations
Lakeland Field Office for
assistance, calling the oper-
ation '"a large-scale organ-
ized criminal enterprise."
From November 2008
through February 2009
detectives served 20 search
warrants and interviewed
numerous people who were
in jail or had been arrested
for baby formula theft,
including Sevilla, who was
in the Highlands County
Jail after her January arrest
by the SPD. 1
They identified the
organizer of the theft ring
as Eli Nimrod Castillo-
Almendarez, who was rent-
ing a storage unit in
Orlando, the press release
said.
He allegedly averaged
two trips i week transport-
ing stolen formula from
Florida to North Carolina,
where it was repackaged
and sold.
Last week alone detec-
tives seized 1,955 cans of
formula, which the PCSO
said was one week's worth
of work. In one year the
group could have stolen up
to $2.5 million in baby for-
mula.
After interviewing one
suspect, she said she had
been stealing formula for
the past seven years, lead-
ing to a potential $17.5 mil-
lion worth'of stolen formu-
la during that time period,
the release states.,

Shoplifting the
formula
A group of five, com-
posed of three men and two
women, would work a
store. Four would go into
the store while one of the
men stayed in the car.
Inside the store, one of
the men would put baby
formula into a shopping
cart and walk to an isle
without a security camera
while the other man "con-


ducted counter surveillance
to ensure the group was not
caught," the press release
said. The women would
walk to the isle where the
man was waiting with the
baby formula and stuff up
to six cans of the formula
into an oversized ladies
bag.
They would be out of the
store within two minutes.
"In several of the stores
the women were able to go
in and out of the store more
than once," the press
release stated.
Each group would spend
approximately 15 minutes
in each store before return-
ing to the-car and heading
to the next store, stealing
from up to 15 stores a day.
The suspects would then'
take the formula back to
their motel room and pack
it into paper shopping bags.
They would transport the
stolen formula to a storage
unit, repeating the process
until they had enough for-
mula to have it transported
out of state, the press
release said.
The 13 suspects initially
arrested admitted to travel-
ing all the way from
Atlanta for the sole purpose
.of stealing baby formula,
were paid between $100
and $300 a day, and were
all in the country illegally
from either Honduras or
Mexico.
Deputies determined
three vehicles the suspects
were driving "had recently
been purchased for the sole
purpose of stealing baby
formula," the press release
said.
The operation highlight-
ed in the press release was
similar to the tactics used
by Sevilla, although she
was tle only suspect arrest-
ed at the time when she
allegedly tried to leave the
Winn-Dixie store with six
cans of baby formula in a.
black purse.
She was also arrested in
2007 by the DeSoto County,
Sheriff's Office for larceny
and dealing in stolen prop-
erty.
She is one of 17 arrests
made in the baby formula
theft ring in a group of
"boosters." Castillo-
Almendarez, determined to
be the "boss," is in custody,
along with another "upper
level" suspect, Eber Ramon
Escalante-Almendarez.
Of the two organizing
the "boosters," one arrest
has been made, that of
Nelson Matute, but offi-
cials remain on the lookout
for Jose Sanchez, deter-
mined to be the "organizer"
of Sevilla' group of boost-
ers.
- Stores in the area target-
ed for baby formula theft
have taken some action,
said SPD Commander
Steve Carr. .
"A lot of the stores are
taking preventive meas-
ures," he said. "Some keep
the baby formula behind
the counter, that sort of
thing.".

Enchiladas a hit in

county schools


Continued from page 1A
Kimball could be seen super--
vising her eight employees
making 912 enchiladas by
hand-Thursday morning..
First the tortillas are laid
out on massive baking sheets
. and a thin layer of cheese is
sprinkled on them.,
Next they are filled with
either beef or chicken
cooked with various spices,
then rolled and topped with
enchilada sauce and cheese.
Finally they are baked and
ready'to go.
"It's a. labor of love," said
Martha Brown, director of
Food and Nutrition for the
Highlands County School
Board. "It means a lot to
(cafeteria employees) to give
the kids something they
enjoy."
The idea to put enchiladas
on the menu came last year
when the county had an
abundance of beef.
"It was, a lot of beef, lets
put it that way," Brown said.
They found an enchilada
recipe from the USDA Web
site and after the failure of
other beef items like shep-
herd's pie, they went ahead
and tried it.
"We just tweaked it,"
Brown said.
Aside from asking for the


recipe, students enjoyed and
appreciated something new.
"It's different," said
Lashaun Foerman, an eighth-
grader at SMS.
"Yeah, they're really
'good," echoed Marissa
Hinson, another eighth-grad-
er. "A lot of kids get extras
on them."
Brown's department works
hard to keep the students not
only fed but happy, includ-
ing taking different kinds of
lunch breaks.
"We eat lunch at cafeterias
daily and give them input
into recipe development,"
she said.
Variety is important, but
each day of the week has a
different theme to give the
students some structure.
"Kids have wider food
experiences than we had
growing up," Brown said,
explaining the need for vari-
ety.
For the miiddle schools,
Monday's theme is Italian,
where lasagna has become
popular,'followed by all
American, oriental, Latin
and on Fridays students are
sent into the weekend with
pizza or chicken.
"Back to the 'can't-live-
withouts' in a kids' world,"
Brown joked about pizza.

Jobless rate still rising


Continued from page 1A
Florida's heavy reliance on
construction and the contin-
ued decline in the housing
market, said officials with
the Agency for Workforce
Innovation.
Construction was down
100,700 jobs in January
compared to the same
month a year ago in Florida.
That's a 17.9 percent
decline. Construction
accounted for more than 26
percent of the 355,700 jobs
the state lost over that one-
year span.
"We are working diligent-
ly to ensure federal stimulus
funds are distributed quick-
ly to have significant impact
on increasing benefits and
enhancing our services to
Floridians," said interim
Workforce Innovation
director Cynthia R.
Lorenzo.
Gov. Charlie Crist
'already has signed an agree-
ment with the U.S.
Department of Labor to
increase weekly unemploy-
ment benefits by $25.


Tlht increase went into
effect Feb. 22. Unemployed
workers should start getting
the extra dollars by the end
of March.
It is expected to bring
$345 million in stimulus
money to Florida through
the end of 2009.
The only statewide sec-
tors with job increases over
the year were health and
education, up 2.3 percent,
and government, up 0.4 per-
cent.
Growth in. nursing and
residential care facilities
accounted for much of the
education and health
increase.
Government was up due
largely to shifting seasonal
patterns in state university
employment.
"Locally, health-care and
energy were are on the rise,"
said Hood
"They seem to be holding
steady, but I don't know for
how long."

Information from the Associated
Press was used in this report.


Stimulus will help HCSO


Continued from page 1A
the tools and equipment
necessary to fight crime,
this money will simultane-
ously help jump start the
American economy and pro-
tect our citizens."
Benton said the Edward
Byrne Justice Assistance
Grant Program, funded by
the new stimulus, was
depleted last year due to
high needs from the state.
"It has been a grant where
a lot of law enforcement
agencies can get equipment
without having to go though
general fund dollars," she
said. "It can also be used for
mental health programs."
While 60 percent of the
$135.1 million, will go
directly to the state, the
remaining 40 percent will
be set aside for units of local
government.
The dollars will support a
variety of efforts such as
hiring and support for law


enforcement officers, multi-
jurisdictional drug and gang
task forces, crime preven-
tion, domestic violence pro-
grams,. courts, corrections
and treatment, the press
release said.
Currently the HCSO is
starting its second year of a
$400,000 grant to fight
methamphetamine that was
funded through grants the
stimulus will help keep in
place.
The money for new
deputies Benton hopes to
hire will be in place for the
next three years.
"We will have the funding
through this grant process
for three years and hopeful-
ly the local economy will
look better by then," Benton
said.
The paperwork for the
new deputies is, ready; the
county is just awaiting the
submission date to come.

Local business people gather for book study

Recent cold weather days meant a 'help' partnership for
Rob Browning (left) of Central Contractors of Lake Placid
And Lee Andruss, chairman of the Glades Electric
Charitable Trust, and relief for a Lorida family.

Glades Electric Trust, Central
Contractors partner to help family


Special to the News-Sun
LORIDA February's cold
weather days meant a "help"
partnership for, Rob
Browning of Central
Contractors of Lake Placid
and Lee Andruss, chairman
of the Glades. Electric
Charitable Trust.
A Lorida couple dealing
with' health problems and
resulting financial shortfalls,
had no heat due to faulty
electrical equipment in dire
need of repair.
"I fear my house will burn
down," the applicant wrote in
her plea for help from the
Trust's Roundup funds, ear-


marked for such emergencies
and intended to help people
recover.
Within 72 hours, a team of
Glades staff, Central
Contractor's crews and Trust
board members had an emer-
gency partnership responding
that restored heat to the home
in time for the release from
an area hospital by the hus-
band and a "very apprecia-
tive, thankful family."
Glades Electric, a rural
coop program, will hold its
annual meeting to elect offfi-
cers and conduct business in
Okeechobee on March 28.


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING A group of local busi-
ness people gather weekly at the
Greater Sebring Chamber of
Commerce to study the classic book "
Think and Grow Rich," written by
Napoleon Hill in 1937.
For 20 years, Hill studied the lives
of the 500 richest men in the country,
and he spelled out in specific detail the
13 steps to riches in his book.
Part of the book's appeal is the
uncanny, almost prophetic insights of
Hill about matters and issues that are
very much today,
This study group refuses to partici-
pate in "today's economy." They are
creating their "own economy," partici-
pant Jeanny Campbell said.
There are two choices every person
and business is faced with in this econ-
omy: to be proactive or reactive. "You
can sit idle and wait to see what is


going to happen to only then be forced
to react to circumstances, or you can be
proactive and take action on your own
behalf now. Many people are frozen in
fear and cannot see the opportunities
around them; however, history always
repeats itself and vast fortunes will be
made by those who are equipped with
the skills and attitudes to turn obstacles
into opportunities," Campbell said.
The group recently attended an event
in West Palm Beach led by top selling
authors and speakers Brian Tracy, Paul
Martinelli of Beyond The Secret
Movie, Larry Wilson, author of the
"One Minute Sales Person" and Tom
Feltenstein, former marketing director
for McDonald's.
Anyone interested in the upcoming
"Think and Grow Rich" Study Group,
sponsored by the Sebring Chamber of
Commerce, can contact Campbell from
Improve Life Results at 385-3101.

The Palms of Sebring Available from Commercial News Providers"


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Emily
Fuentes of Erie, Colo., has
recently undertaken a
Brethren Volunteer Service
assignment, with The Palms
of Sebiing.
The Palms is a, continuing
care retirement community.
Residents can engage in a
variety of activities including
exercise classes, movies,
game nights, Bible studies,
workshops, clubs and con-
certs. Volunteers aid in the
planning of these activities
and assist residents


during them. Fuentes
will work alongside
staff to provide a
pleasant atmosphere
within The Palms
community.
Before 'joining
BVS, Fuentes studied


Fuen


astrophysics at the
University of Colorado,
Boulder. She has also been
very involved in her church
serving on the Worship Team,
Pastoral Search Committee,
and as custodian. As she
begins her year of volunteer
service she reflects, "I belive
that service in an act) of kind-
ness fiom one person to
another, done with the inter-
est of the intended at heart."
Her assignment to The
Palms followed an orienta-
tion at Camp Ithiel in Gotha,
where a group of 11 volun-,
teers Came together from all
over the. United States and
Germany. For three weeks,
they lived together as a com-


munity and studied topics of
nonviolence, peacemaking,
globalization, and. simple liv-
ing. They also gained first-
hand volunteer. experience
working with local organiza-
tions in Orlando and Miami.
Orientation builds communi-
ty spirit among participants
through personal sharing, fel-
lowship and increased
knowledge of the world.
. Fuentes is taking part in a
long standing tradition of
ministry through service.
BVS, established in 1948,
works at advocating
,justice, peacemaking,
serving human needs,
and caring for cre-
ation.
Approximately 100
current BVSers serve
in the United States
ites and abroad working
with various peace
and social/economic justice
organizations. They focus on
many. current. social needs
including care for children,
youth and senior citizens;
ecological issues; homeless-
ness; refugee assistance;
domestic and international
peacemaking; and general
community services.
In exchange for their work,
volunteers receive room,
board and a small monthly
stipend from their project.
Brethren Volunteer Service, a
program of the Church of the
Brethren, is open to any per-
son 18 years or older interest-
ed in service through a
Christian program.

SEBRING The Lady,
Blue Streaks hadn't lost a
match this season, but found
the road a little tougher
Saturday in the finals of the
Heartland Conference
Tournament at Sun "N Lake.
"We played well and all
five of our singles to the
finals," head coach Jane
Hollinger said. "We have
some very tough matches in
our conference and the tour-
nament format is different, so
it's a good learning experi-
ence for the girls."
Tough match-ups, indeed,
as Avon Park's Angie Carillo
came out on top of a three-set
match to win the No. I sin-
gles, besting Sebring's Kelsie
Jbhnson.
The Lady Streaks got a win
at No. 2 singles with Kaley
Walter topping Jacqueline
Hurst of Frostproof 6-1, 6-3.
Lauren Flood got some
atonement for the Bulldogs.

Another easy one for


Lady Streaks


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING Going
through a softer part of the
season schedule can be a
double-edged sword, and
the Lady Blue Streaks are
seeing both sides of it.
Friday nights
9-1 win over Sebring
Palmetto was
the team's 9 ,
fourth in a row,
by combined Palmett,
scores of 45-3,
so on the one
hand, the wins
are piling up.
But on the other side of it,
the easy victories can sap a
team's focus and level of
play.
"I could see it in the way
we were warming up


between innings," head
coach Joe Sinness said.
."We're complacent and
playing down to the level of
our. opponents. They're
playing a lot on talent right
now."
Though, that does show a
high level of talent this
team possesses.
Haley Pack went the
whole way on the mound
for Sebring, scattering
five hits and striking out
two for the win.,
Offensively, the Streaks
jumped out with three
runs in the first with Wendy
Negrin and Priscilla Adams
raking back-to-back dou-
bles.
Three more came in the
fifth with Pack and Hannah
Shoop, picking up RBI sin-


'They 're playing

,a lot on talent
right now.'

JOE SINNESS
Sebring head coach

gles and another three-spot
came in the sixth as Negrin
and Adams each notched
another scoring hit.
"I was. happy with our hit-
ting for the most part,"
Sinness said. "And our
pitching has been real good,
but our defense was terrible
tonight. We're having a
tough time putting a com-
plete game together both
offensively and defensive-
ly."

Austin Gaines, after having stepped on third for the
force, throws to first to try to complete a double play.
The throw was late, though the Panthers rallied late to
take their Suncoast Conference opener, 10-7, over
Pasco-Hernando Friday.

AVON PARK Having
been battle tested ws ith a
tough pre-conference sched-'
ule, the SFCC baseball team
came back from two deficits'
to take their Suncoa't
Conference opener, 10-7,
over visitingg Pasco-
Hernando.
After a defensive miscue,
the Conquistadors pushed an
unearned run across in, the
fourth, but the Panthers got
that run back on a fielder's
choice to score Austin Gaines.
South Florida (20-6, 1-0)
then powered its way to four
runs in the bottom of the fifth
with Jose Rodriguez leading
off with an opposite-field
home run to left before Greg,
Smith brought in two with a
liner up the middle and
Gaines brought in, another
with a two-bagger to the left-
field wall.
But. with uncharacteristic
control problems, Johnny
Sedlock walked two and hit a
batter in the sixth.
Two singles and a home
run mixed in with those free
passes and Pasco was back


on top, 6-5.
But Rodritguez \as back at
it, golfing one- the other wa)
for his second consecutive
hom e run to ie things up at
6-6 going into the seventh
%where the Panthers took the
Icad for good. -
Williams knocked Smitl'in
with a single in the frame and
in the eighth, with two out,
Ethan Lovell and Smith sin-
gled before Gaines drew a
pass.
Jerry Neufang then plated
two with a single and Gaines
soon came in on a w Id pitch
for a 10-" leA"l"d.
Russell Kator rot the w in
in relief, coining into a bases-
loaded situation and .getting
the key out on ti ikes:'.
Overall,' six Panthers
notched two hits apiece in the
win.
"It was a hard-fought
Suncoast Conference game,
just as expected," head coach
Rick Hitt said. "You talk to
your guys about playing each
pitch and how important
momentum is in a A.ime. We
just keptplaying and rimiJde
some big plays when we had
to."

Brown and Dennis Birkholz
each had 4-for-5 scoring three'
runs. Earl Kunkel went 4-for-
4. Scoring three runs each
were John Bielman. Dave
Majick and Doug Ebeling.
Allstate turned four dou-
ble plays and Jim HensleN
slammed a two-run homer.
The Blue Jays defeated
Highlands Independent Bank
with a final score of 15-6.
The Bank held a 2-1 lead
through the fourth inning
then the Jays forged ahead.,
A routine infield fly that
, was dropped turned into a
triple play.
Blue Jay s Dick Schiltz was
an important part of the suc-
cess again by slugging, a
home run.,
The top hitters for the Bank
were Bob Burley, banging out
a bases-loaded home run, and
Jimmy Johnson had three hits.

batters, again, were Mike
Jurmu 4-for-5, including a
home run and Roque
Socarras going 4-for-5.
Richard Godfrey had 3-
for-4, including a double, and
Don Cunningham hit 3-for-4.
Good defense by the
Salesman reflected the low
run total by the Rebels.
Another factor was five
shutout innings pitched by,
Harley Smith.
An interesting sidenote for
the team was that Kenneth
Filppula and Richard
Godfrey ran the 5K

ble, Don Purdy had 2-for-3
with a triple and Rick

behind 9-3 and scored six in
the top of the sixth to tie.
They then scored five runs
in the top of the seventh to
take the lead.
The Merchants, behind by
two, drove in three runs to
clinch the game at 15-14.

scoring three runs, while Johns
Bielman had 2-for-2 and
* Tommy Gaiowonik 2-for-3.

dence as both teams left
numerous men on base.

hits, 18 of them singles, the
Salesman left thirteen on.

pitching for the Jays had a lot
to do with that.

for-4, Sergio Prieto had 2-
for-3, including the lone

museums, libraries, art gal-

and pollen mean much more.
Pollinators play atremhen-
dous economic role. The. .
problem is, too many people
see the pollination process as
p free service from nature;
mostepeople don't know the
unprecedented threats facing
wild and managed pollina-

percent since 1990, and there

years.
For more than a decade,
biologists have documented
declines in populations of
migratory pollinators includ-
ing butterflies, bats and
birds.
Habitat loss and excessive .
exposure to agrochemical; as
well as spread of diseases,
parasitic mites, invasion of
Africanized honey bees, and
elimination of government
subsidies for beekeepers are
most often mentioned for
what's been called an
impending pollination crisis.
Pollinators are particular-
ly important ,to fruit, veg-
etable and nut growers, with
crops valued in the billions.
California producers rent
Half a.million bee hives a
year for almond trees alone.
On your land, there are
several things you can do to
help pollinators. ,
Dor't disturb wild
areas. Bumblebees nest in
grass in old mouse nests, for
instance, and otherbees nest
in dead wood.

ly crops. Clovers, alfalfa,,
trefoils and other legumes
enrich and protect the soil
and are pollinator favorites.


Use conservation
buffers. Current USDA pro-
grams offer annual rental
.payments to plant grasses or


trees op qualifying cropland.
These contour strips, grassed
waterways, hedgerows, filter
strips and windbreaks offer


some of the best habitat to
pollinators, and they can be
within the crop field that
needs their pollination serv-
ice.
Let plants bloom. Try
totime mowing, tilling or
grazing management deci-
sions so that plants have the
opportunity to bloom.
Time pesticide applica-
tion. Your pesticide label
lists bee toxicity and resid-
ual time.

Did you know?
A bee's wings vibrate
about 435 times a second.
More than 75 percent of
the crop plants that feed the
world, and many plant-
derived medicines in our
pharmacies rely on pollina-
tion by insects or other ani-
mals for healthy fruit devel-
opment.
