County moves to update comprehensive plan


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@nes'ssiin.co in
SEBRING The Highlands
County Commission voted 5-0 to
approve a contract with the Central
Florida Regional Planning Council to
update the countywide comprehen-
sive plan.
Opponents to the contract claimed
that the county did not need to
expend the extra $250,000 for the
contract, and that the action was
directed at moving forward a couple
of large development projects around
the Lake Placid area.


pay the regional council $75,000 on
April 1. They have done nothing yet.
Don't you pay for what you get? The
scope of work is an absolute mess.
This is going to require that you put
on more people anyhow and this kind
of spending without proper planning
is ridiculous," said Preston H. Colby.
Citizen John Drennan agreed with
.Colby's comments. Drennan further
alluded that the need to spend the
extra money right now as tied to the
Atlantic Blue development project in

Michael Wright.

required by statute to update our
comprehensive plan. and we have
less than a year to do that. Currently.


we can not go forward with any of

said.

Move will save city more

By ED BALDRIDGE
ed baldridgeh ('newss.un.com
AVON PARK After some discus-
sion concerning the public's access to
city council, elected officials voted 4-1
to reduce its meetings to just once per
month.
Council Al Joe Hinson

reading of Ordinance No,.

savings did not outweigh'

"I originally voted no against
to the first reading, but reduction
after I was swayed by the
actual savings," said Councilman George
Hall.
Councilman Joe Wright also raised
questions about ha ing just one meeting
per month.
"One could argue that with just one
meeting per month. the public has less
access to city council," Wright said.
According to city staff. the savings for,
having just one meeting per month could
be $750 per month and 14 labor hours for

As Sebring grew, community lead-

of preparing for the, future and rising
demand while ensuring safe plant
operations. The task of evolving a
viable plan fell to Marty Roepstorff,
director of the city's utilities, and Bob
Boggus, administrative coordinator.
Under their direction, uniting the
four different sewer systems into one


integrated operation became an organ-
ized plan especially after one of the
private utilities fell on hard times.
The management of Landmark

The Tooth Fairy is making her rounds at county schools visiting students in pre-K
through second grade,teaching the importance of dental health.


Tooth Fairy visiting students


Delivering message about
importance of strong teeth
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING The Tooth Fairy has been
spotted in Highlands County.
The Children's Dental Care of
Highlands (a part of The Highlands
County Health Department) has partnered
with the learning facilities in the commu-
nity and is offering axcomplimentary pres-
entation about good dental health and
habits.
The Tooth Fairy offers an educational
as well as entertaining presentation to
children grades pre-K through second
grade.
The program consists of a brief talk
about plaque, brushing and cavities.
'This is followed by a video and finish-
es with a discussion ,aout the nutritional
aspects of eating healthy.


Developing good dental hygiene habits
at an early age and scheduling regular
dental visits helps children get a good
start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and
gums.
. Tooth decay is the most common child-
hood disease, affecting nearly 60 percent
of children and it is getting worse.
Between 1994 and 2002, this disease
has increased by 15 percent among chil-
dren aged two to five.
Poor dental health negatively impacts a
child's ability to learn. It causes almost 51
million school hours to be missed annual-
ly due to dental-related illness.
It also affects a child's ability to eat,'
causing failure to thrive, often because of
malnutrition. The consequences can
stretch far beyond childhood.
The program has proven to be extreme-
ly effective in elevating the Dental I.Q. of
those students who have participated.

AP creates

By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK Avon
Park City Council took one
more step toward organizing
a proper airport authority
when they voted to combine
operational and airport busi- -
ness into one committee at
their meeting on Monday
night.
Council voted 5-0 to adopt
Resolution 09-04, which ter-
minates the Airport
Community Agency's
Advisory Board and creates
a Airport Advisory Board.
Although the renaming on
the surface does not seem
like a big deal, the improper
handling of committees
could lead to legal trouble
for Avon Park.
"We could have changed
the name of
the commit-
tee, but there
is no need to E -
go that far. '-
This cleans it
up," said city ,.
attorney Jerry
Buhr. 'This
Citing past should help

ment Agency GEORGE
(CRA) or by HALL
the city coun- c
cil, George member
Hall affirmed
that the name change would
help to separate items like
radio frequencies from tax
funding issues.
"This should help clean up
the facts so that it will help
us understand clearly what's
coming up, CRA business or.
city business," Hall said.,
"Under the 'Home Rule.
Powers Act,' the city clearly
has the authority to create 0or
eliminate any advisory
boards they desire," said
Buhr.
In a written statement,
Buhr outlined that the cur-
rent advisory boards were
under Florida Government in
Sunshine, but were not the
final authority when deci-
sions were made.
"Mixing CRA and airport
, management topics is not a
problem: however, for pur-
poses of presentation ... I
advise that CRA topics and
recommendations be separat-
ed by splitting the agenda
and recommendationss" said
Buhr in his statement.

12th Annual Car Show at Wells Dodge Chrysler


www.newssun.com


AVON PARK For the
12th consecutive year,
Wells Dodge Chrysler is
hosting their annual classic
car show on the Saturday
before the 12 Hours of
Sebring endurance race.
What a great way to kick
off Speedweek in Highlands
County. This coming
Saturday, March 14th, over.
100 classics, antiques, and
race cars as well as customs,
rods, and race cars will fill
the new car display area at
Wells Dodge Chrysler on
US 27 between Avon Park
and Sebring from 9 a.m.
until 2 p.m.
Over the years this classic
car show has grown into
one of the largest and most
fun shows of the season.
With old car restoration
growing into a leading
retirement activity, it is
no wonder that the Wells
show in Highlands County
with both its demographic
population and geographic
location, has grown in size
every year.
Another reason for its
size and success is that it
is an open show. There is
no entry fee for exhibitors
and admission is free for
spectators. Consequently,
people who have been
hesitant in the past have
brought their cars for a one
time display. That means
this show has vehicles that
have never been shown in
Florida before. One of those
unique vehicles expected
this year is a fully restored
1963 Mack straight bodied
truck. Where else, can you
go to see a Mack truck, a
full blown dragster, a classic
Model T and a street rod
all within 50 yards of each
other?
Also on display is the
new 2009 Dodge Ram 1500
with the Ram Box and a
Challenger SRT. The Ram
Box is the lockable storage
box located on the side of
the pickup bed in place of
the normally wasted space,
by the wheel well. This is a
segment first and one of the
most practical innovations
in light duty trucks ever.
The Challenger SRT is a
true Mustang eater. With
a 425 hp HEMI wrapped
in a classic 1970 appearing
Challenger, this vehicle is
one the collectors will be
proud of years from now.
Hotdogs and hamburgers
will once again be available
compliments of the Avon
Park High School Band
Boosters. What better
place to have lunch on
Saturday? Oldies music will
be furnished by Art Bostic.
Parking is abundant with a
shuttle service available.
For a super fun-filled
outing, don't miss the 12th
Annual Classic Car Show
at Wells Dodge Chrysler
located on US 27 between
Avon Park and Sebring,
on Saturday, March 14th,
between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Spring brings Relay for Life events


It % all ,,itr fault


During tough times, moments of
shared hope and optimism are
both rare and uplifting. All the
more reason to treasure them as they
occur.


The Relay for Life pro-
gram, which honors cancer
survivors and raises money.
for cancer research, generates
that kind of hope and that
kind of optimism, making the
Spring season a period of
renewal in more ways than
one.
What sets Relay for Life
apart from so much other
J fundraising, is that it brings
people together, both gener-
*ally and within a formal team
structure.
Whole communities
become involved, individuals
'. drawn out of their homes,
strangers meeting new
friends.
From an Italian dinner at
Tanglewood, to a softball
game between Sebring
Middle School's faculty rand
staff and' the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office to
: fashion shows to 18-hour


walkathons around the high,,
school tracks, groups and
agencies, businesses and
schools are all participating

No one who has ever taken
part in the overnight
walkathons, with luminaries
lighting the way, has failed to
be moved by the power of the
emotion, the almost electric
camaraderie and sense of
purpose. Families camp out
in tents, walkers take turns
on the track, children run-
ning, balloons everywhere,
the atmosphere is buoyant -
tempered only by memorials


for those no longer here -
the reminder of courage in
the face of suffering and that
life is sweet and to be lived
fully.
We know, we've been
there. We've witnessed it.
Keep an eye out for
upcoming events. The
Heartland Association of

Time will tell if
'Obama is blessing or
curse
Editor:
I read with interest the let-
ter by Una V. McLaughlin
regarding President Barack
.Obama and she stated, "the
Lord our God has His hand
- on this young man's shoul-
der." Is this supposde to be
an unusual situation? Was
not this true also with
George W. Bush, Bill
Clinton, etc.?
My only source for
authority on such matters,
the Word of God/Bible,
declares the following truths:
There is no authority
except from God, and the
authorities that exist are
appointed by God (Romans
'13:1-5),
Jesus declared to Pilate
that he would have no power
unless it had been given him
from above (John 19:11).
Jeremiah declared as
Jehovah was speaking
through him that
Nebuchadnezzar, the King of
Babylon was His servant
(Jeremiah 27:6).
Paul records that God
.raised up Pharaoh to show
His power through him
(Romans 9:17).
Daniel clearly states
that the Most High rules in
the kingdom of men and
gives it to whomever hd will
(Daniel 4:17; 5:18-20).
Now, what is so unique
about Barak Hussein
Obama? Only time will tell
if he is a blessing or curse
from God! You will know a
tree by its fruit.

The funding hole
:: continues to get
deeper
Editor:
Our dearly departed Paul
Harvey might have included
this article in one of his
:':commentaries. A recent edi-
trial rebukedthe federal
government of shortchanging
the state of Florida in its
.S' effort to provide more edu-
national funds (stimulus) for
our schools. How could the
feds be so mean to require
the state to request a waiver
because it had cut funds for
education instead of increas-
;, ing funds?

Well, in reviewing
Florida's record relating to
educational funding, one %\ill
discover that the state of
Florida had shortchanged
education for decades. The
late Goys. (Reuben) Askew,
then (LeRoy) Collins tried to
turn the tide and move
Florida up above 45th in the
nation on funding, only to
have the Democratic legisla-
ture to again decrease fund-
ing. Gov. (Bob) Graham
worked to improve funding,
but again that was reversed.
The late Gov. (Lawton)
Chiles had a Republican leg-
islature that under-funded
education. The state is cur-
rently near the bottom in
funding education.
The voters had approved
the lottery by 76 percent to
r supplement educational
? funding, but the legislature
used those funds to replace
the cuts made in the educa-
tion department. Those vot-
ers have been upset ever
since. About five years ago,
the state under Gov. Jeb
Bush had a $1 billion deficit.
The departments, of,
Education, Children &
SFamilies and Fireman/Police
made up that deficit
($600,000, $300,000,
$100,000). The DCF has
been rife with corruption for
years. So the charge made
that the legislature simply
made temporary changes,
improvements is correct. It
simply put off needed
reform, both in education
and taxes.


Another effort by the vot-
ers to improve education was
to reduce class size. Gov.
Bush opposed it and delayed
it. Highlands County School
Board was ahead of the
curve on that issue, but
again reduced funding made
that difficult. The latest
: funding cuts not only stifled
small .class size, but other
parts of curriculum as well.
Thus, it is ironic that the
editorial would rebuke the
feds on that issue. Thus, the
rest of the story.
Ours is a very diverse
society; this infuses many
problems that under funding
schools generates. It needs
to be repeated that our pub-
lic schools are not failing; it
is our society that has either
neglected to or refused to
address this problem for
decades, especially here in-
Florida. Our schools did not
cause these problems, but
' they were "dumped" on the
schools, which were inade-
quate to address them.
It has also been noted that
a number of agencies had
begun to pursue this -issue
starting with children from
birth on. Even those agen-
cies had their funds cut!
To pile one ignominy
upon another, there is the
dire economy. There is an
enormous hole for this
nation to get out of, but
there are those who continue
to dig.
That is another story.

about actual 'costs, according to City
Manager Sarah Adelt stated that the cost in
labor would be approximately an addition-
al $275. .. .
"I did not bring those numbers, but I can
get the exact figures for you," Adelt told
Hinson.
According to Deputy Mayor Brenda
Gray, the-savings were a benefit, and so
was the fact that council would have more
time to understand the issues.
"There has been some things that I don't
think we needed to address. We will have to
trust staff to make sure that they bring just
the important stuff to us in the future. I,
too, was swayed by-the savings, and the
extra time w ill give us a better opportunity
Sto go over the material," Gray said.


Bill O'Brien day set for Friday


Continued from page 1A
years of using crutches that
have destroyed his rotator
cuffs.
Because of the polio's recur-
rence, O'Brien has lost much.
of his former independence. He
can no longer get out of bed, or
into his wheelchair without
help: Right now he is depend-
ent on his wife, Cindi, to help
.him into the chair in the morn-
ifig, and he can't leave it once
she's gone to work.
This is why his many friends
and -admirers are banding
together on his behalf. With the'-
help of civic organizations,
money has been raised and a <
sling and track rig with electric
motor been bought that will
free O'Brien by allowing him*
to move himself. The remain-"
inig hurdle is getting the rig
installed.
This is a major job, O'Brien,
says, because support beams
have to added in the attic to "
-take the weight.
A-fundraising cookout to
raise money for the installation
is planned for II a.m. to 1:30
p.m. Friday, both at Firemen's
Field and the First Baptist
Church of Lake Placid. The-
city-of. Sebring even issued a
proclamation proclaiming
March 13 Bill O'Brien Day.
Organizers request an RSVP
for planning purposes. Contact
numbers will follow the article. -
Despite the inconveniences
and pain the disease causes,
O'Brien has never given in to
- it. -
In fact, he says, when the
social security agency, enta
representative to sign him up
on his- 18th birthday, he -sent'.
the individual away, refusing


disability benefits to this day.
Instead he went through an
evaluation program in order to
find an occupation suitable to
his needs and abilities. That
work turned out to be dispatch-
ing.
Having graduated from
Sebring High School in 1968,
O'Brien went to work with
Western- Union, learning tele-
typing on the job.
From Western Union, he
went to Highlands General
Hospital now Highlands .
Regional Medical Center -
where-he was a switchboard
operator.
At the hospital he met a
nurse whise husband was the--.
incoming Sebring chief of
police. She suggested O'Brien
ipply for a dispatching posi-
tion. -
SWhen he handed in his .
application, outgoing police
chief Lonnie Curl hired him
immediately, despite having to
fight to get him accepted by
the city council. This was in.
-November 1972, and attitudes
towards People coping with
- handicaps was not what it is
today. ": .
S 'Brien says that Curl
attended his retirement party in-
2006. -
"Curl said I was the last per-
sonihe ever hired and also the
best person he ever hired. He
said he fought for me."
O'Brien says with pride.
When O'Brien started as a
dispatcher, the police commu- -
nicated through old-fashioned
call boxes on street corners; By.
the time of his retirement, he.
was using computers and
advanced radio systems.
When O'Brien began his
career, there was no such pro-.


gram as 911. Typically on duty
two at a time, the dispatchers
sat just inside the front door of
the police station on North
Ridgeway Drive. They handled
routine and emergency phone
calls, and walk-ins as well. It
wasn't uncommon, O'Brien
says, to have a phone at each
ear.
The dispatchers were not
only the first point of contact
for the public, but directed the
calls where they needed to go
i.e. police, fire or medical
emergency.
.."If you needed to find a cop
.(back in the day)," he says,
"you called McDonald's,
Village Inn or.Dunkin'
Doniuts."
Over the years the biggest
changes O'Brien says, have
been the volume of the people
and the rate of new construc-
tion. He remembers watching
Wal-Mart being built, and can
think back to a time when a
day's biggest problem was a
police lieutenant accidentally
locking himself into the back
of his cruiser.
Today he keeps busy volun-
teering, as he has done all of
his life. Monday finds him at
Florida Hospital in Lake
Placid, doing what he's always
done, keeping people calm
while getting them to the right
place. -. .
To RSVP the cook-out or
make a donation call Mary
SStrenth of the Salvation Army

open at Wauchula State Bank
: called the Bill O'Brien Benefit.

Sebring is in the process of purchasing the privately owned landmark Utilities Inc., located
within a mobile home park west of U. S. 27. The plant has developed problems and lost its
permits from the state Department of Environmental Protection. Because of its gravity-
based design, the plant is doing no harm, although it is not currently operational. Once the
sale to the city is complete, what is shown here will be dismantled and removed. A force
main connection will integrate customers to the city's sewer system. Treatment plants at
Sebring Airport and off of Thunderbird Road (below) are also being added to the city's sys-
tem, although tie-ins integrating everything are years away.

Sebring sewer system ready for growth


Continued from page 1A
However Landmark
Utilities fit into Sebring's
long-term ,plans, so an offer
was made to buy the opera-
tion, under certain conditions,
and add it to the city's infra-
structure.
The city has now been
named as receiver and will
take over the operation, but
won't be held liable for the
plant's current condition pro-
vided it works in good faith to
correct problems.
In fact, the treatment plant
will be dismantled altogether
within the next six months as
it is too rundown to be sal-
vaged. Instead, a force main
will be installed and the com-
pany's five lift stations
upgraded so that 'former
Landmark customers can join
the city's system. At that time
they will begin to pay city
rates.
Roepstorff complimented
county officials for their
assistance and support of the
city through the process of
Landmark's acquisition.
For example, the county is,
joining Sebring in paying for
the cost of the force main,
splitting the cost in half with a
cap at $200.000 for each.
Because ,:of its condition.
t the plant has not been in oper-
ation. Typical for a sewer sys-
tent;'the treatment plant is
located on high ground. That
means effluence collected


there can be moved by gravity
flow into lower retention
ponds where it evaporates or
percolates back through the
ground. This design means
wastewater can be accepted
into the plant despite it's
being off line.
Eventually both the airport
sewer operation and the other
private -utility Highlands
Utilities on Thunderbird Road
- also will be connected to,
the city's sewer lines.
Some connections will
come sooner. For example,
those Highlands Utility lines
that lie within feet of city
lines can be easily switched
over.
But for the most part unify-
ing the system will take years.
That's because the goal of
an integrated system -
which, in the long run is much
less expensive to maintain -
is expensive to create and has


to be reached by taking baby
steps, Roepstorff said in a
recent interview.
"The first step is to acquire
the properties. The second
step will be to tie them in, but
that won't take place until the
next generation. In this fiscal
environment we need to be
careful," he said.
He added that part of a util-
ity's responsibility is to build
for the future, "being sure the
lines are in place when they
are needed."
By expanding its capability
the city won't have to pump
all its effluence to a single:
treatment plant located uphill
and well to the east. In time,
the airport and the Highladds
wastewater treatment plants
will provide service closer to.
home, requiring much less,
pumping and providing
greater capacity.


County moving ahead with plan


Continued from page 1A
the south part of the county.
"Atlantic Blue was in
here are few months ago
and said there would be no
charge to the citizens of the
county. Now you are telling
us that this will cost us
$250,000. Why are we
doing this for private devel-
opers? They can pay for
their own development,"
Drennan said.
"I agree with Colby on
every part of this," Drennan
added.
On the affirmative, Ray
Royce, director of the
Heartland Agricultural
Coalition, informed the
commission that the county
has gotten behind in plan-
ning and encouraged them
to get up to date.
"You are behind in per-
forming the roles that you
are required to do. Now you
have to get yourself caught
back up. A comprehensive
plan does not just benefit
property owners, it benefits
commercial development as
well," Royce said.
"This is. a chance to get
our county caught back up
where we need to be.
Strongly encourage you to
take this action and move
forward."
According to Wright, the
cost for the extra work
would come from the fuel
trust fund. During the last
county budget process,
when fuel costs were at an
all-time high, county staff
figured the costs and put
aside $400,000 to take care
of increased fuel expenses.
Since fuel has dropped con-
siderably, that extra money
is idle and still a part of the
general fund.
"Since gas is below $2
per gallon, we have this
money unencumbered and
available," Wright said.
"Taking $250,000 from that
money will not hurt the
budget at all."


An additional item arose
about the vote surrounding
this contract by Councilman
Jeff Carlson, who is the
president of the Central
Florida Planning Council
(CFPC), the controlling
board for the Regional
Planning Council.
Wright assured the public
that having members on the
commission who represent-
ed CFRPC had no bearing
on his decision to hire
CFRPC as the planners.
Chairperson Barbara
Stewart was a member of
CFPC, but no longer sits on
the board.
"We' ensure that what we
put in the plan is what the
state and county requires.
The Planing Council does
vote on the contract, but is
not involved in the actual
'We could see a
stop to economic
development
(without a plan).'

JEFF CARLSON
commissioner

planning," Wright said.
Ross Macbeth, attorney
for the commission, assured
Carlson that since he was
not paid by CFPC he did not
have to abstain, and asked
for the lunch break to be
moved up so he could con-
firm that conclusion.
Bill Youngman, another
citizen activist in the coun-
ty, Was confused at the
duplicity that commission
was presenting on different
.issues about growth.
"We were in here last
week talking about sheriff's
department. It was present-
ed by Commissioner
Carlson' that we did not
need to do the sheriff's
department because the
population of Highlands
County was decreasing. I
have four projects in my


neighborhood that is sched-
uled to have 2,205 housing
projects planned on the
1,800 acres.
"We do not need Lake
Placid North, Lake Placid
South and Bluehead. Let the
developers pay for it,"
Youngman said.
Another issue raised by
Colby concerned access to
the records are the planning
took place.
"Some of these records
that the taxpayers are pay-
ing for will not be public
record, is that correct?"
Colby asked in his extra
time allotted after Jack
Ritchie of the Highlands
Homeowner Association
deferred his granted time
for questions to Colby.
"Some of the documents,
especially those form pri-
vate consultants, will not be
public records until the
project is finished,"
Macbeth said.
"We must update the
comprehensive plan. We
had 18 months to do it, and
we are already six months
into it, and we do not have
the staff to do this. This
project is not being driven
by Lake Placid North, Lake
Placid South or Atlantic
Blue.
"We have to update this
plan. One point I would like
to see is a deliverable dates
for the scope of the plan,"
said Commissioner Don
Bates.
In response to citizen
concerns, Carlson assured
the public that this not a
housing-based project.
"This is a comprehensive
plan. This is not directed
specifically to just housing,
it is for economic develop-
ment as well.
"(Without a plan) We
could see a stop to econom-
ic development. We could
see five years of commer-
cial development not hap-
pening." Carlson said.

Simple

ways

seniors can

stay active

and healthy

You've worked hard your
entire life to earn your retire-
ment, and now you should
enjoy it. But you won't be
able to actively socialize with
friends, family and neigh-
bors, enjoy spending time on
your hobbies or taking trips
to see the grandchildren if
you don't maintain good
health and a good quality of
life.
The average life expectan-
cy is now 78 years, plenty of
time to enjoy your golden
years. You don't need to see a
doctor every day to stay
healthy; with the guidance of
your physician, there are
many ways you can take care
of yourself at home. Here are
a few ideas you can try your-
self:
Monitor the information
your doctor wants to know.
For example, an estimated
one-half of senior citizens
suffer from hypertension.
The Lumiscope Blood
Pressure Arm Monitor found
at Montgomery Ward
(www.Wards.com) allows you
to track your blood pressure
at home. Daily monitoring
can help you and your doctor
. bring your blood pressure
levels down to 120 or lower,
which is recommended to
avoid risks of stroke or heart
attacks.
Involve your friends,
family and neighbors in a
weekly yard game of bocce
ball, croquet, horseshoes or
badminton, to name a few.
Not only are. yard. games
good physical exercise, but
the competition keeps your
mind sharp and social inter-'
action balances out a well-
rounded lifestyle.
Get your hands dirty
and plant a garden. Whether
you fill indoor Ipots with
beautiful, leafy house plants


Daily monitoring can help bring your blood pressure levels down. The Lumiscope Blood
Pressure Arm Monitor from Wards.com helps you to track your blood pressure at home.


or plant your entire outdoor
landscape in a field of color-
ful blooms, working with
plants is fun and contributes
to a sense of well-being.
Plus, the planting process
involves a little muscle, help-
ing you to keep your body in
good condition.
Relive .some of your
childhood fun. Try a daily
workout with the Cory
Everson Trampoline
(www.Wards.com). The tram-
poline provides a good cardio
and muscular workout com-
plete with a stability bar to
assist your balance. And you
can exercise at your level,
without overexerting your
muscles. Combine your
,workout with your favorite
tunes and revert to your
bouncy youth.
Join a book club and
invite the members to your
house. Whether you're into
mysteries, historical fiction,
biographies or romance nov-
els, stretch your imagination,
share your thoughts and
engage your fellow /book
lovers in a good discussion.

America's retirees working to protect health care benefits they earned


Retirees and baby boomers through-
out the nation are wondering with great
trepidation, what would happen to them
if their health care coverage were sim-
ply taken away?
Many fear that the current economic
crisis in America will speed up that
process. It has already occurred with
retirees of some of America's largest
corporations, and municipalities are
threatening to follow suit. According to
Paul Miller, executive director of the
national retiree advocacy group,
ProtectSeniors.Org, the situation is as
dire as the bailout was for the auto
industry, Wall Street and America's
major banks.
"There are currently an estimated
18.5 million American retirees and baby


boomers in the United States with health
benefits being significantly threatened,"
Miller says. "If cancelled by the corpo-
rations they once worked for, most
would be dumped into the federal and
state healthcare systems. In effect, this
means their former employers would be
getting an additional back-door federal
bailout at the expense of the taxpayer."
The health care coverage Miller is
referring to is .earned retiree benefits
that tens of millions of Americans
earned and paid for during their working
years. He says that for whatever reason,
many corporations never- actually set
that money aside and are using the cur-
rent financial turmoil to threaten the
cancellation and further reduction of
these benefits.


Much of his organization's hope is
placed on a bipartisan legislative pro-
posal- titled the Emergency Retiree
Health Benefits Protection Act in the
110th Congress which gained the
support of 88 bipartisan co-sponsors.
The bill would prohibit employers from
making post-retirement cancellations or
reductions of health benefits that
retirees had earned.
"Companies would be made to live up
to the financial commitments made to
their employees and retirees, and most
importantly, would do so without plac-
ing mandates on the employers as to
what health plans they provide or mone-
tary ceilings on the amount of health
benefits", Miller says.

Infect a friend


"HAPPINESS IS CON-
TAGIOUS... INFECT A
FRIEND" is a cartoon I cut
out from a little tea box.
They must have read the
article by Nicholas
Cristakis, a Harvard profes-
sor who spent 20 years
studying 4,700 individuals
and came to the conclusion
that "Emotional states can
be transferred directly from
one individual to another
by mimicry and emotional
contagion."
Just think of how you
feel when your spouse
comes home with a cheery
greeting and a smile. How
do you feel when said
spouse greets you with a
frown and a growl. It's a
downer instead of a pleas-
ant feeling.
Think about the service
with a smile motto of many
restaurants and retail
establishments. This atti-
tude and cheeriness has
direct effect on the cus-
tomer satisfaction and tip-
ping.
Cristakis cites an exam-
ple of students randomly
assigned to a depressed
roommate who in a short
time also became mildly
depressed. More than we,
realize, our facial expres-
sions and attitudes convey
our feelings so that even if,
you don't feel cheery, use
the "as if" exercise. Act as
if you feel wonderful. It
soon becomes real.
This is not being phony.


Pearl's Gems
Pearl Carter
It is a practical application
that results in a circle of
people around you who are
also happy. Like a solid
wall around you, the more
you attract happy people
the more you will be insu-
lated from depression.
I never liked the old song
"I can be happy. I can be
sad. It all .depends on you."
I never liked it because I
learned that no one can
make you feel one way or
the other. Essentially that is
true. However, I prefer to
modify it ... one's mood
can have an "affect" on
you. Sort of like the quote:
"You can't soar like an
eagle when you fly with
turkeys!" So "laugh and the
world laughs with you ... be
happy ... infect a friend
and maybe we can even end
wars!

Take care of your ticker


Cardiovascular disease
remains the No. 1 cause of
death for both men' and
women in the United
States. While heart-related
illnesses are widespread,
the good news is your
lifestyle choices can have a
significantly positive effect
on your overall heart
health. .
."You can easily improve
overall heart health with a
few, simple lifestyle choic-
es," say. dietician Keri
Glassman. "One in four
Americans does not get
enough exercise to main-
tain a healthy lifestyle.
With obesity on the rise,
especially among children,
routine daily exercise is a
great place to start. When
combined with a healthier
diet, particularly one with
reduced sodium, you'll
lower the risks of heart dis-
ease, stroke, diabetes and
hypertension."
True, there are 'factors
that you don't have control
over when it comes to heart
health, including age, race,
gender and family history.
However, by monitoring
controllable risk factors
such as weight, diet and
exercise, you can proac-
tively take the necessary


steps to limit the threats
and improve your overall
well-being.
Here are five easy tips to
get your ticker in tip-top
shape:

Heart smart staples
Stock up on whole
grains, lean proteins rich in
omega-3s, and a colorful
array of fruits and vegeta-
bles. Fruits and veggies are
not only low in fat and
calories, they are also a
great source of vitamins,
minerals and fiber.
Also, omega-3,fatty acids
found in salmon, tuna, wal-
nuts, soybeans, brussel
sprouts and flax seeds, can
help lower blood fats called
triglycerides, which are
harmful to your heart. A
diet high in soluble fiber
and low in saturated fats
along with increased fruits
and vegetables may help
decrease cholesterol and
blood pressure.

Shake the salt
habit
Sodium is one, of the
biggest contributors to
heart disease and hyperten-
sion; and, as a general rule,

unions, 76 municipal, state
and federal retiree groups, in
addition to 14 retiree associa-
tions.
"Lately, economists, talk
show hosts, journalists and
even politicians have been
blaming America's retirees
and union workers for the
- :economic downturn, calling
our earned retirement health
Coverage legacy. costs and
:burdensome," says C.
William Jones, a retiree from
Verizon Communications and
*president of the 100,000-
'member Association of
:BellTel Retirees. "I, and tens
of millions of retirees like.
me, worked decades to earn
those benefits, taking less
Spay and forgoing days off to
fund them. For companies to
-now imply that retirees are a
liability to them and America
;'is morally offensive and
absolutely inaccurate."
Advocates of the legisla-
tion argue that over many
Years, companies used the
promise of post-employment
health care coverage to
induce employees to stay'
with that employer or, in
some cases, to take early
retirement. Companies did
not agree to pay retiree bene-


fits out of the goodness of
their hearts or social well-
being; there were significant
financial benefits and tax
breaks for them. They further
explain that employers bene-
fited financially by not hav-
ing to pay Social Security
and payroll taxes on these
benefits.
"Funding these benefits
could be deferred by compa-
nies in years when earnings
were low, unlike payroll that
must be paid on time," Jones,
says. "Since pensions are
based on a percentage of
wages, companies also saved
on long-term pension costs."'
University' Of .Alabama
School Of Law Professor Dr.
Norman Stein, an expert on
the nation's Employee
Retirement Income Security
Act (ERISA). pension law
testified in -favor of the pro-
posal at a congressional hear-
ing in the fall, saying
Congress should pass legisla-
tion "that would make it dif-
ficult or perhaps impossible
:for an employer to terminate
retiree health benefits after
an employee has retired."
The long time advisor to
AARP and the Pension
Rights Center argued,
"Congress could try to level
the playing field for employ-
ees with clear, reasonable
and consistent rules."
Just last year the U.S.


Supreme Court and 'Equal
Employment Opportunity
Commission ruled that it is
legal for companies to reduce
or eliminate earned health
benefits for retirees ages 65
and over, due to a loophole in
the ERISA pension laws.
Acting to close that loop-
hole with legislation to pro-
tect America's retirees, Rep.
John Tierney (D-Mass.) says,
"Unlike pension plans,
ERISA does not. impose
mandatory 'vesting' require-
ments with respect to health
benefits. Consequently,
many courts have upheld that
there is no legal protection
for employees. (The.
Emergency Retiree. Health
Benefits Protection Act).
remedies this and ensures
that the reasonable health
benefit expectations of
retirees from ERISA-spon-
sored regulated group health
plans are fulfilled."
."America's retirees are not
here asking for a handout or
a bailout," Miller says. "We
merely want companies to
live up to the promises they
made., Give us the health
benefits we earned and paid
for over decades of loyal
service."

Take care of your ticker


Continued from page 8A
you should not exceed 2,400 milligrams of
sodium per day. Buyer beware: high
amounts of sodium lurk in many of the
everyday foods you love, including soups,
breads and even beverages. Help stay with-
in your daily sodium recommendation and
opt for the low salt or reduced sodium
options of your favorite foods, when avail-
able.
Many choices, such as Del Monte's 50
percent Less Salt Vegetables, are a conven-
ient way to reduce salt while maintaining
delicious flavor. Look for heart smart
options in the grocery store. Products such
as Del Monte's 50 percent Less Salt Whole
Kernel Corn and Sweet Peas display the
American Heart Association heart-check
mark on the label as they meet the
,Association's food criteria for saturated fat
and cholesterol for healthy people older
than age 2.
Other low-sodium options readily avail-
able at the supermarket include Pepperidge
Farms reduced-sodium breads, lower sodi-
um soups from Campbell's and Progresso,
and Orville Redenbacher's SmartPop pop-
corn. For great ways on switching out those
high sodium foods with lower salt versions,

Your heart will gleam with
lycopene
Tomatoes contain lycopene, a leading


ingredient in reducing your risk of cardio-
vascular disease. Studies indicate that
canned tomato products may be even better
than their fresh counterparts, so go ahead
and use that can of spaghetti sauce. In fact,
research finds that lycopene in tomatoes can
be absorbed more efficiently by the body
once processed into juice, sauce, paste and
ketchup.

Get moving
Statistics show that 1.3 million people
will have a new or recurrent heart attack in
2009 according to the American Heart
Association, and one major contributor is a
lack of daily exercise. Tired of your old rou-
tine or going to the gym? Sign up for a fun
salsa, ballroom or meringue dance class at a
local community center. You'll get your
blood moving, heart pumping and have fun
with friends and others while you're doing
it.

Snuff out the smoke
Quitting smoking is an important and
necessary life change to dramatically lower-
ing your risk of a heart attack. Smokers
have more than twice the risk of suffering a
heart attack as non-smokers and are more
likely to die from a heart-related illness.

team's depth of talent that

Both the boys and..girls
teams had representatives in
the finals for each of the sin-


gles matches, while the girls
filled both doubles slots and
the boys had one of the two.
The Lady Blue Streaks
came away with one win in
the singles and one in the
doubles to build their team

Little things make for long Panther weekend a


By DAN HOEHNE
danielhobehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK Little
things can mean a lot. But a
lack of little things can make
for a long weekend, as evi-
denced by the South Florida
baseball team.
After edging out Pasco-
Hernando Friday to get their
Suncoast. Conference sched-
ule off on the right foot, the
Panthers dropped three
straight, two to the
Conquistadors sandwiched
around a Sunday loss to
Lincolnland. Ill.
In each of the three games,
SFCC (20-6,
PaSco 1-2) held a
31n lead,' only to
I3 .see it not built
upon and
SFCC gien up to
never be'
g regotten.
Holding a
3-0 lead Saturday in Pasco, a
line-drive off starter Chaz
Abeln's right wrist in the sev-
enth lead to problems in the
eighth and the 'dors battled
back for a .3-3 tie -before
pushing across the fourth,
and winning, run in the 11th
inning.
Again Sunday, a 3-0'lead
was holding into the late
innings before a grand slam
spelled defeat.
Eerily, it was another 3-0
lead that the Panthers were
holding again on Monday
*before two big innings lead
t6 a 13-7 Conquistador win.
Two runs came in during
the bottom of the opening'
frame. with Ethan Lovell and
Greg Smith singling before
Austin Gaines was hit by a

pitch to load the bases.
Ryan Williams then fol-
lowed with a two-run single
that had runners on first and
second with nobody out.
But the chance to blow it
open early went by the way-
side as the runners were
stranded.
The third run was added in
the third on a Jerry Neufang
home run, but by the time
they scored again, 12 Pasco
runs would cross the plate'.
For the second time in as
many days, SFCC was vic-
timized by a grand slam, with
Micah Robinson knocking it
out as part of a seven-run
fifth inning.
The Panthers looked to get
some of those runs back in
their half of the fifth after
Smith and Gaines opened the
frame with consecutive sin-
gles.
But they, like 11 others on
the day. would be stranded.
Pasco added a run in the
sixth and four more, in the
seventh to push the lead to
12-3 before South Florida
showed some signs of life.
A Lovell walk and Smith
single put runners on the cor-
ners in the bottom of the sev-
enth and awild pitch brought
Lovell in.
Gaines long fly to right
could not be handled at the
fence, putting runners at sec-

catch of 18.83 pounds and
won the Big Bass Contest
with a weight of 10.44

caught in shallow water with

from Glades Electric came
in second place and James
and Melissa Kowalski came
in third with a catch of
14.7g pounds. Each team
won a cash prize and a tour-
nament plaque. When asked
the secret to their success,
Milano commented "You
have to be patient and just
let the bait sit there. Its not
how many fish you catch -
you have got to go for the
big ones."' "You should
have seen the ones that got
away," Parker added. The
pair commented that the
drought has impacted early
season fishing slightly, but
are optimistic. "The fish are
a little late this year,"
Milano said. "But they are
starting to turn on now and
the next two months are
going to be awesome." '

threatened with five more
runners in its' final two at

And Another
Thing...

Quite

Sure, there are plenty
of bad things going on in
the sports world, niot to.
mention the' real world,
as it seems that's all we
ever hear about.
But with a new base-
ball season coming up
soon and the mental
break from reality that is
March Madness and the
NCAA basketball tourna-
ment, there are some
refreshing escapes on the
horizon.
I also heard a couple
things recently that I
found quite refreshing as
welL
A month or so ago, I
wrote a column about the
Texas high school girls'
basketball game that
ended up with a 100-0
score, which had people
up in arms on both'sides!
of the argument -
although. I'd say those
on the other side of it
were in the definite, if
not irascibly vocal,
minority.
I heard of a tennis
match that the Sebring
boys team, was in not too
long ago that played out
as the right way to do
things.
Having gone through
the singles part of the
match, the Blue Streaks
had won handily and had
a pretty good idea how
the doubles matches
would soon go.
But rather than storm
out, manhandle and
destroy their apparently
overmatched opponent,
the Sebring duo were
overheard to basically

plate in trying to add on to
the early lead;
"We lost a tough on, over
there (Pasco) Saturday and
then the grand slam yester-
day," he continued. "And
today, Matt (Fugelsang)
pitched us well into the game
and had the one bad inning.
But again, pitching in a 3-0
game is different than pitch-


Pete today
ing in a 6-0 or 7-0 game,
which it could have been at
that point. We just have to
pick it up again and start
making the plays if we want
to get where we want to be."
Where they'll be today is a
tough contest at St.

they'll welcome to Panther

Sebring's No. 1 singles player,
Kelsie Johnson, took runner up
in the Heartland Conference
Tournament over the weekend.


Good sports are in the majority!


Continued from 1B
innings, or four-and-a-half
if the home team is ahead -
to be literal.
Sebring had scored 12 in
the first inning and likely
could have gone for the
century mark in the game
had they been so inclined.
But I learned a little trick
of the trade in softball, for
those teams, coaches and
players who choose to use
it.
With the rule being that
a runner cannot lead off a
base until the ball leaves
the pitchers hand, lest
they be called out, it is
apparently a normal prac-
tice, in such one-sided
games, for runners on the


stronger team to get absent
minded, or for their timing
to be off just enough to get
caught leading off too soon.
The Lady Streaks won, of
course, but only saw the
need to score one more run
over their next three at-bats
before the mercy rule


kicked in. is quite a bit more refresh-
I'm sure that sort of thing ing to hear about good
happens a ton more than we sportsmanship like that and
are all aware of, for show- to realize that it's a lot more
ing good sportsmanship like common than we. know.
that isn't what makes for Dan Hoehne is the Sports

IStroke Prevention
n ahts seln i 1 hr nou can avoidI life threatening


disease by participating in accurate, affordable
i ultrasound screenings.

Wednesday, March .8.S
. poCommunity Church of Lake Placid .
i : :;735 S. Sun N Lakes Blvd. Lake Placid ;
I I

1. STROKE/CAROTID ULTRASOUND ..............$35
This test visualizes build-up of plaque in the carotid arteries that may
lead to stroke.
2. ABDOMINAL AORTIC ANEURYSM (AAA) ....$35
95% of ruptured AAA's result in death. The majority of victims have no-


I


symptoms.


3. ARTERIAL DISEASE (PAD) TEST .................$35
Ultrasound is used to detect poor circulation and blockages in the
legs.
'4. THYROID ULTRASOUND .........................$35
Scan to rule out cysts, nodules, goiters and tumors.
5. ABDOMINAL ULTRASOUND (5 MAJOR ORGANS) ..$85
Helps identify cancers of the liver, pancreas, kidneys, spleen,
gallbladder.
6. HEART SCAN ECHOCARDIOGRAM ...........$95
'Screening to view wall motion, valves, enlargements, calcifications,
stenosis, prolapse, blood clots, tumors and fluid around the heart


Q. How accurate are these health screenings?
A. Our adherence to stringent protocol, highly trained sonographers, state-of-
the-art ultrasound machines, and board certified interpreting radiologists make
the screenings exceedingly accurate. Physician written protocols ensure
consistency and accuracy.
Q. Why should I have these tests if I have no symptoms?
A. It is important to have a screening to identify problems before symptoms
arise, potentially avoiding a serious health crisis. Unfortunately, our body's
warning signs often come too late.
No prescriptions necessary. International customers welcome.
Ultrasound can find smaller & more curable cancers, before you have
symptoms. Board-certified physician reads all tests and only registered
sonographers perform exams.

FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS


Sebring
Recreation Club


By Chapman Chamber/in


SEBRING We are so
happy that Judy Holloway
has now got enough points to
make her a pro next year.
; Sonny Patterson has earned
* enough points so that he is
also a pro next year.
; Carl Wile is on his:way to
becoming a pro. Marion
'Reynen and Bill Schaeffer
have enough points so that
they are now both state ama-
teurs.
This week I didn't forget to
write down the stats!
First/Silver Foxes (Capt.
; Max Tate) with 39 wins; sec-
ond/Nifty Fifties (Capt. Stan
* McCormack) with 38 wins;
tying for third/The Drifters
: (Capt. Ed Straub) and
Alleygators (Capt. Floyann
Frey) with 35 wins each;
' Wednesday Wonders (Capt.
Bushee) with 30 wins; All
Stars (Capt. Dorothy
z Boonen)-with 27 wins; Sharp
A Shooters (Capt. Frank
^ Reynen) with 26 wins; Disk
4 Jockeys (Capt. Ruth. Tate)
with 22 wins. This is the
standing as of Feb. 25.
Only two more weeks to
go and then on March 18 we
x have our awards and fun day
i with hoss collar and straw-
berry shortcake for all.
Sixty-four players gath-
ered at Kissimmee on Feb. 27
for the last shuffleboard tour-
nament to be held at these
courts.
The city is taking this land,
for another reason, maybe
"greed."
On the bright side, Sebring
had two club members.,
< Walcott Davis and 'Clarence
* Wright, that finished as win-
ners.
Sebring should be very
proud of the many good shuf-
flers in this area.
March 2-3 found a Florida
state tournament for amateurs
at Sebring. Sponsor for this
tournament was our Ken

Price. 19 teams competed and
.Sebring had five shufflers
among the winning teams.
Anna Eldredge, Harold
Miller and "serious" Tony
Beckwith, Jim Edwards and
Eva Edwards.
Friday shuffleboard needs
players as the numbers are
down for this season. This is
a good group led by Peter and
Margaret White.
What better 'way to spend
Friday afternoon than with
good people? You are invited
if you are a club member.
John still needs you for ice
cream shuffleboard on
Saturday.
The crowd is good but
more are wanted. New play-
ers start at all times and you
will find people willing to
help' you if you want. John
has lessons for all stages of
shufflers, from the ground up


as the saying goes.
Here are the league stand-
ings as of March 4: First with
44 wins, Silver Foxes (Max
Tate); second, Nifty Fifties
(Stan McCormack); third,
Alleygators (Floyann Frey);
The Drifters (Ed Straub);
Wednesday Wonders (John
Bushee); All Stars (Dorothy
Boonen); Sharp Shooters
(Frank Reynen);, Disk
Jockeys (Ruth Tate). Thanks
for putting what you can in
the News-Sun.
The fifth finds the parks
tournament with 10 six-per-
son teams from the parks.
George Kisel and Carl Wile
did a great job with this one.
They have also changed the'
name to "The Max and Ruth
Tate InvitationalI!"
. This all 'happens at 333
Pomegranate Ave. in Sebring.
Come and see for yourself.

Town and Country
Mobile Home Park
By Janet Day
SEBRING Looking
back on February, Town &
Country experienced a really
busy month. Seemed like
spring break at many north-
ern schools 'brought scads of
family members south. I was
really envious of all you
lucky folks having grandchil-
dren down. Gary and Alan,
the Haags, Dubuques,
Demlers, Bogaczyks,
Glassbrooks and probably
others all entertained family
members. Rather unique, the
Lundgruns had two couples
visiting whose children were
raised with Lee and Shirley's
kids. It's great to maintain
those relationships .
Some of those who didn't


have company were traveling
themselves: The Chapels vis-
ited family in North
Carolina; Wyse's visited fam-
ily along their route to
Williamsburg, Va.; Mullens
were cruising; and Jack and
Barb Wilson took a cycle trip
to the Keys. Good to see Barb
out and traveling. Others
took shorter trips to the
Florida attractions. Great to
have the families visiting
from the northern winter
scenes.
Unfortunately, there have
been some illnesses also.
Gene Clark had a couple
brief hospital stays. Good to
have Gene home and able to
get out. It is wonderful to see
Eunice Hazelton and ,Lucky
out walking the park. Ann
and Don Purdy are due in
from New Brunswick after
Ann's successful surgery.

Wonderful news and am sure
they are loving this "warmer"
weather here in sunny Florida
again.
A sad note in February
amongst the good news. Jim
Hervey, husband of Wendy,
died on Feb. 10. A lovely
memorial service and lunch-
eon were held at the club-
house. Jim was an accom-
plished musician and taught
dancing at Arthur Murray's
studio in Detroit. Our sincere
sympathy to Wendy and sis-
ter, Geri Spangler.
Activity-wise, we had a
marvelous February break-
fast with Wendy and staff.
Four men namely Gary
Amell, Bill Mullen, Larry
Trombley, Ray Dubuque -
plus Maribeth Carby did the
cooking and serving. Thanks
to all. The Valentine steak
dinner was well received and
very delicious, I'm told. The
,end of February brought out a
great group for the Skymed
pot luck. Skymed. rewarded
us with a delicious ham and
the cooks of Town & Country
supplied the usual fine dishes
they create.
Very exciting news in that
we have had some folks help-
ing the local economy with
the sale of three homes. Tom
and Daphne Rigel from
Indiana are new residents on
Town & Country Boulevard.
Al and Peg Fraim have tem-
porarily moved down the
same street. Chuck and
Wilma Burr have rejoined
our park again. This is the
third time for them in Town
& Country so perhaps this
will be a more permanent
stay. Don and Norma Hickey
from Ontario have been rent-
ing on Town & Country
Boulevard. We just learned
Ken and Marie Taylor have
purchased the home on Town
& Country. Plus Bill and
Elizabeth Aeschliman are
renting on Town & Country
Boulevard. Great news to
have our homes occupied.;

27-member CCC alumni chapter keeps the memories alive


Next meeting set for March 14


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Of the 27 members making up
the local, chapter of the Civilian Conservation
Corps alumni organization, only six had actu-
ally served ifi the CCC: Sidney Mander, Phil
Simpson, Otto Soyk, Clarence Novak, John
Meek and Velmar Mack. The rest-are family
and friends of CCC members, along with
folks interested in the CCC and its accom-
plishments.
The CCC, one of President Franklin D.
Roosevelt's New Deal programs from the
'days of the -Great Deplression in the 1930s,
had enrolled millions of young men to work
on environmental projects across the country.
The vast majority of these enrollees., were
teenagers during those years. Today, any sur-
viving members are well into their upper 80's
or 90's.Ivembership in many chapters has
dwindled to the point they are unable to con-
tinue.
In fact, the national CCC alumni organiza-
tion, once located in St. Louis, has lost so
Many members it has now--merged with a
smaller, sister organization, based in Virginia.
This new partnership, called CCCL (Civilian
Conservation Corps Legacy) is headed by a
coalition of former CCCers and a group of


"second generation" folks dedicated to keep-
ing the memory of the CCC alive and to pro-
moting the creation of CCC-like programs
today.
The local chapter, CCCL Chapter 169, is
still going strong. It has enough members to
carry on its main mission of supporting
Highlands Hammock State Park and its CCC
Museum and also to provide programs about
the CCC to interested groups.
Recently, the chapter elected a new- slate of
officers. President is Larry Levey, who held
that position from 2003-2006. Vice-president
is former- CCCer Sidney 'Mander; secretary,
Elaine Levey and treasurer, Betty Simpson,
the immediate past president. She is also the
chapter's representative to the national office,
where she.serves as a member of this year's
nominating committee. Edwina Clifford is the
chapter's sunshine secretary. '
.Next meeting of the chapter is set for '10
a.m. Saturday at the CCC Mus.eumat the state
park. The agenda includes a showing of the
historical information available on the com-
puter at the museum.,

,affected by a loss of hearing. Everyday conversation can seem grainy, less
focused and awkward as natural speech and sounds become
harder to comprehend. Delta is the innovative new hearing device
that helps you break out of the isolation to improve your scope of under-
standing, so you can converse more confidently and more
comfortably with others,


High-tech Artificial Intelligence automatically adjusts
settings to enhance the quality of speech
Discreet triangular shape conveniently hides out-of-sight,
comfortably behind your car
Choice of 17 attractive colors blend with skin or hair, or express
your own individual style

clarity. You can come out of your shell and participate in a whole new
world of people, places and opportunities.
