Deputies keep economy

The economy is going down, but
the price of a speeding ticket has gone

be for someone when those two facts
collide.

who fell into a pool Friday morning.
According to emergency' personnel, the

A dramatic walk


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
About 15 members of Sandra Billings' Thursday night Bible class recreated Jesus' walk
through the streets of Jerusalem Good Friday morning. Calling themselves the 'Wild
Ones', they set out from Dee's Place on North Ridgewood Drive in Sebring, walked
south through the Historic Circle and down South Ridgewood Drive before turning
around and walking back. 'We're stepping out for Christ,' said Jessie Alvarez, one of the
participants. 'We believe in our Lord and want to set an example. He is risen.'

Avon Park CRA advisory board's

voting procedure questioned


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK Thursday
night's regular meeting of the
Community Redevelopment
Agency's Southside advisory
board included some contro-
versy.
Two newly appointed
members, Arnold Davis and
LaTunya Ford, although not
yet seated officially or
allowed to sit on the dais for
the meeting, were allowed to
vote, and Davis to second a
motion for a new chairperson
and vice-chairperson for the
board. Ford, in fact, became
the vice-chair.
Only Alice Paisley, retiring
member, voted against Ford,
precisely because she had not
been sworn-in.
Douglas Barnard, a sitting
member of the board, said
Friday, "Neither (Davis or
Ford) have been sworn in, yet
they were voting from the
floor. How it went down was-
n't right at all. What's wrong
with this picture? We have
nobody who knows what

SEBRING The announce-
ment of the proposed 2,200-
acre residential, recreation

sent a message to those who
retired to what they thought
was a quiet and peaceful'area.
The project by Lykes

completion, will certainly
change the face of Highlands
County in more ways than
one.
Dr. John C. Alleyne,
Highlands County Extension

ence."
There was some controver-
sy regarding facade grant
applications as well.
Of the 13 individuals
applying for residential non-
matching facade grants from
the board, four applications
were temporarily put aside
because they were not com-
plete.
The nine other applications
were passed on a straight up-
or-down vote. However,
there were concerns with
some of them, with the advi-,
sory board warning the main
CRA to not approve all.
In order to receive money
from the CRA, an applicant
must be in good financial


standing with the city. That
means all taxes and code.
enforcement liens or fees
must be paid in full. It was
thought that some of the nine
applicants owed the city
money.
Another rule is khat non-
matching grants may only be
distributed to applicants who
own and live in the house that
benefits from the grant.
One of 'the grant applica-
tions, for example, was for a
house that has been rented
out. It was denied. outright
for that reason.
Brenda Gray, city council
member and therefore a
member of the main CRA
board, had her third facade
grant approved by the adviso-
ry board Thursday night.
The grant for $10,000
- is a commercial matching
grant. Gray said she plans to
invest a little over $49,000 to
upgrade a storefront and
divide it into two units at
1005 and 1033 South
Delaney Avenue. The grant is
for two front windows at
$5,000 each.

Avon Park Publix to

close doors May 2


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy @newssun .co
m
AVON PARK -
Customers leaving the
Avon Park Publix Saturday.
were upset, but knew they
couldn't do anything about
the store closing.
"I'm horrified. Who
made this decision:? I don't
know?" said Jane Stevens
of Zolfo Springs.
The store will close per-
manently at 7 p.m.
Saturday, May 2.
A low volume of busi-
ness and the opening of the
new Publix store in late
October, four and a half
miles south in north
Sebring's former
Albertsons location, were
cited as reasons for the clo-
sure by Maria Brous, of
Publix media relations.
The Avon Park store also
had to compete with the
new Wal-Mart that opened
mid-August and is further
north in Avon Park, even
closer than the new Sebring
Publix.
Stevens lives seven miles
off of U.S. 27 on State
Road 64, but said she will
make the trip into Sebring
or another city to shop, but
still at a Publix store.
"J will always shop
Publix but I prefer the older
Southgate center," she said
when asked about the mas-
sive new Publix in Sebring.
"They'll get me one way or
another."
Wal-Mart didn't get
Debbie George's money,
either. She said she doesn't
like their meats.
"I've shopped here for 10
years," said the Avon Park
Lakes resident about the
closing store.


This Story Was First
Reported Online At
www.newssun@

She works in Sebring and
plans on shopping at the
new Publix on Thursdays
on the way home instead of
when it's convenient for
her.
The Avon Park store
employs dozens of local
residents who will now
have to make the trek to
another Publix store or lose
their jobs, although Brous
said all associates will have
an opportunity to transfer to
other stores.
According to a customer
service employee at the
new Publix store in
Sebring, the store is not
currently hiring. The. last
hires they made were in
December.
Mike Aubrey, assistant
manager of the closing
store, would not answer any
questions, even about the
future of his own employ-
ment with the company.'
When asked if Saturday
was a busy day for shop-
ping, as five of the seven
checkout lines in the store
were open that morning, he
said "well, it's Easter," and
wouldn't discuss anything
'further.
Still, the brand certainly
seems to have its fans in
Avon Park, like resident
John Paulitch.
"I wish they would stay
open," he said. "I love
shopping at Publix and all
the little things they do."
There are currently more
than 700 Publix stores in
Florida, including four that
opened in the past month.

Publix patrons leave the store Saturday after grabbing
groceries. In the future, Avon Park residents will have to
venture out of the city to visit a Publix store.

Be grateful for law enforcement officers


The world is filled with high-risk occupations -
fire fighting, commercial fishing, and mining
under ground come quickly to mind. For the most
part, however, their dangers are obvious and come in
expected ways. While there are life-and-death decisions
to be made, they hinge mostly on procedure.


Law enforcement officers work in
an entirely different setting, made the
more difficult because their work
occurs on comfortable hometown
streets.
Days are filled with unknown situa-
tions and unexpected danger, because
all too often police officers are deal-
ing with people at.their worst.
The individuals faced may be
enraged, under the influence, suicidal
or demented; they just might be scared
and confused; or totally harmless and
in need of help.
Officers never know what they will
find as they answer a call.
Even more demanding, a police
officer's decisions often impacts other
lives. A shadowy figure on a dark
night suddenly lifting an arm might be
a threat or an unarmed adolescent. In
the former case, the police officer may
die by hesitating. In the latter, an offi-
cer may end up killing an innocent
bystander.
Take a minute to let that excruciat-

I have two grandsons that live here in Lake

the kids call him). My grandsons love and trust
Dr. Ragu; they are 2 and 5.
Dr. Ragu was on staff at Heartland Pediatrics
in the Lake Placid office and I found out today
that he is no longer with them. The office will
not tell you where to find your own doctor. I
made a few calls and found out that Heartland
Peds has released him and that they have a "no
compete" clause in Dr. Ragu's contract, which
means we may lose him from our community. I
personally feel that this would be a great loss- for
our community and our children.
As it stand we only have three choices for
pediatrics and the ratio of children to doctors is
huge. I think Heartland Peds needs to release Dr.
Ragu from the "no-compete" for our community
and our children's benefit or the law needs to
step up and let us have the right choice. Our fam-
ily for one will have to change as the quality of
care would not meet the standards our children
deserve and we would be traveling to another
county for the medical care. That could not be
good for the local businesses involved in health
care.
Out-of-town doctors mean out-of-town phar-
macies, hospitals (and shopping since we are
there). Wouldn't our money be better spent in our
community? Can we really afford to lose Dr.
Ragu?

Love and justice: A line
we insist on blurring
Editor:
We preach patience and the love that comes
from the spirit of God to our children but where
is the teaching of judgment or justice? Jesus says
to not forget love and we have done a magnifi-
cent job teaching the world about love; we even
bring love to those who hate us. Yet, he also says
not to forget about judgment (Luke 11:42); he


ing choice sink in. Then remember
that it takes someone special to suc-
cessfully live with these extraordinary
burdens.
As this editorial is being written
three slain police officers lie in state
in Pittsburgh. They were answering a
domestic call, and then were murdered
by a man who lay in wait.
Oakland, Calif. lost four officers in
March, two gunned down during a
traffic stop, two more in the manhunt
that followed when the perpetrator
speed away.
In both incidents other officers
were hurt.
Of course, here in Highlands
County, we began the month with the
death sentence handed down to the
cold- blooded killer of our own
Florida Highway Trooper Sgt.
Nicholas Sottile, a small comfort for
the Sottile family at best, who would
much rather have their loved one
back.
According to the National Law


TODAY'S LETTERS
even talks about coming into this world not to
bring peace but to bring a sword (Matthew
10:34). He created a fine line that we insist on
blurring. But it is not up to us.
Have you taught your children about judg-
ment, have you taught new believers about jus-
tice?
Too many of the ones who call themselves
Christians now hide their sins behind the words
of the song "Jesus Loves Me." Yes, Jesus loves
you but if you do not love him back and honor
him and follow his instruction you will face
God's judgment. Those who sin or create ill will
towards others will be under God's judgment
because of justice. Justice lends to the protection
of those who are loved.
I know this sounds like faith by works but
when we are filled with the Spirit we voluntarily
follow Christ's instructions and we should be
accurately instructing our children how to receive
the Spirit. If they grow up believing that they are
accepted of Christ no matter what they do, we
are lying to them.
Who in their right mind would accept someone
into their house that would destroy their chil-
dren? No one who loves their children would.
God doesn't have to either. The End of Days that
we are waiting for are about judgment. ...
We are the children of God here, now. We are
to forsake our love of all others and love Christ
the greatest. Most of you should know what that
means. You will not commit a transgression for
anyone, not even your spouse and especially not
your children. You will honor God and Christ
and love them more than all else. You will
become so familiar with them that the words of
God will dance on your heart day and night.
Freedom of your earthly soul will be the desire
of life, even as the body dies. ...
In the Book of Revelation, the second chapter,
there are seven churches that represent the seven
type of Christians you find sitting or not sitting
in a church. Read through it and see where you
fit and then see what the judgment of Christ will
be.
If you are not a believer then Jesus may love
you but God doesn't know you. If God doesn't
know you then you are not accepted.
Please, teach your children love and justice.
They should understand what will happen to


Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund,
so far in 2009, 11 officers have been
killed by gunfire (that includes the
tragedies in Pennsylvania and
California), five have been killed by
vehicle assault, three struck by vehi-
cles, one killed while in pursuit, and
10 in automobile accidents, for a total
of 30, and we've just entered the
fourth month of the year.
Again, according to the memorial
fund, as of this time in 2008, 18,200
officers had been killed in the line of
duty since the first recorded police
death in 1792. Since 1999 an average
of 73 officers have died at the hands
of criminals every year, and an aver-
age of 91 accidently. ,
We mean here to honor the officers
who serve us. Our intention is not to
idealize very real human beings, they
are, after all, our families and neigh-
bors. Like the rest of us, not every
police officer is a saint; some are
incompetent or even dishonest.
But those individuals are like an
eyedropper of liquid removed from
the ocean. The overwhelming number
of peace keepers are well trained and
motivated to serve and protect.
We need to remember that the vast
majority of us are not up to this occu-
pation. We should be grateful for the
people who are.


them in this life and in the next life if they
remain selfish and unloving. They should know
they are loved but they also need to know how to
show compassion and love to others. Are you
doing that? They should be taught we must judge
ourselves with open eyes before we judge anyone
else. /
Do you realize what you are doing to your
child's future when you do not teach them this?
Or is your child your own personal god and do
you understand that they will only see you as a
peasant to abuse because you did not teach them
to love but only to take love? Judgment will find
us and I pray that with it will come the compas-
sion that accompanies justice. I want to give
these so that I can receive these; love, compas-
sion and justice.

Easter holiday can get better if
heart is right
Editor:
Without Christmas, there would be no Easter.
Without the cross, there would be no hope for
mankind. The Scriptures teach us we all have
sinned. Scriptures also teach us that no sin can
enter Heaven.
It hurts my heart to know I helped nail my
Lord to the cross. No greater love has God
shown for each of us.
The Lord has made a way for us to spend eter-
nity with Him forever. Praise His name.
I love Him dearly. This world has nothing for
us my friend. Look around and you will see our
people taking God out of everything! Don't fear
though because there will be a Judgment Day
soon to come which will right all wrong.
God loves us so much my friend and I believe
He longs for the fellowship of mankind.
Do you love Him likewise? Do you want to
spend eternity with Him in Heaven, or do you
prefer to spend an eternity in Hell? Better make
your mind up now. We don't have the promise of
tomorrow in this world.
Confess .your sins and ask Christ to come into
your heart. You will never have a better Easter
from then on!

This is


funny?

I have mentioned before in a
past column that I don't always
understand the male perspective
on humor. Even though I'm
married to a man and got two
boys through puberty, the teen
years, and off to college, I admit
that they often find things funny
that make no sense to me.
This is why when you see
guys telling a joke, the women
around them will often be stand-
ing there shaking their heads or
rolling their eyes, while the
guys are laughing so hard
they're holding their stomachs.
Because I was outnumbered.
by guys in my house, I made an
effort to understand guy humor.
I don't think I'll ever complete-
ly get it while I find Dave
Barry funny more often than.
not, there are times where his
humor wanders over to the total
guy humor that causes my sons
to howl with laughter while my
eyebrows shoot up.
Guy humor probably accounts
for the success of shows like
"The Family Guy," which I'm
never able to watch without
wondering why people think it's
such a good show. I suspect it's
due to the fact it's chock full of
guy humor.
But somehow I can't get how
anyone, even a guy, could con-
sider the events of April 2
funny.
That's the excuse that Jerron
Mario Moffitt apparently gave
for planting a bunch of
envelopes filled with a white
powder on cars in Florida--
Hospital's parking lot and mail-
boxes in the nearby Sun 'N
Lake community.
No doubt my readers are well
aware of what happened when
those envelopes were discov-
ered. Florida Hospital was
locked down,-and Highlands
Regional Medical Center was
kept busy seeing double the
amount of patients they normal-
ly handle in a day. Not to men-
tion the anxiety that went
through the community. In a
post-9/11 time, you know some-
thing like this makes a commu-
nity anxious.
Fortunately for our communi-
ty, everyone involved did their
jobs well. Florida Hospital
reopened Thursday night, we
were told that the powder was
corn starch (chief ingredient in a
baby powder), and the person
responsible was quickly found.
And his excuse? It was a
joke? Terrorizing the entire
community, having people con-
cerned for their lives and the
lives of their loved ones was
funny?
I've pondered this and pon-
dered this and I guess, if I were
a totally self-centered individual
who saw everyone around me as
less important than me getting
what I wanted and I had no
desire to consider others feel-
ings, maybe then I'd consider
this funny. Maybe if I thought
people shouldn't get upset
because I made them think their
lives might be in danger because
it was "all in fun," I would find
myself laughing about this.
But I'm not that kind of per-
son. I can't consider what hap-
pened without thinking about
the people who had family
members in Florida Hospital
who must have worried about
them. I can't look at the story
without feeling sympathy with
the people in the Sun 'N Lake
community who found one of
these envelopes in their mailbox
and had hours of worry.
Nope, this wasn't funny. Not
close to funny. It was a horrible
thing to do to people, and if this
guy had any sort of a conscience
he'd be apologizing all over


himself.
You know what else isn't
funny? If convicted, Moffitt
could spend the rest of his life
in prison for what he claims was
a "joke."
Somehow I doubt he'll find
that outcome funny.

LP Boy Scouts may have

to camp out for real*


Need money
to help pay '
for sewer
connection
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.cOm
LAKE PLACID Boy
Scout Troop 482 is having a
special fundraiser Saturday,
June 6, at the Scout House.at
151 Dal HAll Blvd. The,-
Masonic Lodge is helping the
troop have a hot dog and
hamburger cookout.
This is because the troop'
has been caught in a Catch-
22 situation. "'
Its meeting house is one of
the buildings that has to hook
up with the town's sewer sys-
tem by June 30. If the troop
doesn't do so. it faces the cut
off of utilities.
But the cost of the connec-
tion is $3,200. and troop
committee chairman Alan
Richards said, and there is
another $100 fee on top of
that. He estimates it will take
about $5.000 before it's all
over, because there is a septic
tank and field that have to be
properly retired.
The problem. Richards
said. is coming up with the
money.
The scout's traditional
'fundraising event at
Christmas the scouts sell
wreathes and poinsettias -
was disappointing in 2008,
raising only several hundred
dollars. instead of the usual
several thousand.
Because most of the scouts
come from low-income fami-
lies. the money raised was -
going to pay for summer
camp, which costs $180 per
boy.
While the city has offered
a payment plan over several
years for the sewer hook-up,
the troop, as a non-profit,
cannot commit to such a
long-term obligation.
Richards said another big
problem is a lack of time.
The scouts are having to
spend so much of it raising
money they can't get to the
traditional learning and
recreational activities associ-
ated with scouting.
"We try to be careful to not
allow our fundraising to con-
sume our focus on a program
of leadership. outdoor skills
and citizenship." Richards
said.
"Due to the economy. the
recent Boy Scout fundraising
drives were not as successful
as in recent years. Out utili-
ties and the basic program
.will consume the profits
from our fundraising. and
that is not including the cost
of supplies for the outdoor
program. camping trips, and
other activities and supplies.
Therefore the boys spend a
great deal of their time trying
to raise money to pay their
way to Boy Scout camp.
leadership courses, and pay-
food costs for camping trips.
"It is a slippery slope when
you don't hale time to leach
skills, morals and leadership.
because you are fundraising
year round." he said.
Richards is proud of the
young men currently in his
troop, and the many who
have graduated and moved
on. He pointed out many of
the boys have become Eagle
Scouts, and all of them give
back to the community.
Scouts have regularly con-
tributed labor to the CCC
Festival at Highlands
Hammock State Park annual-
ly. for example. They have
participated in blood drives
one'of which was the
largest .in several years -
assisted the Highlands Trail
Association, spent 10 days
building trails in a national
park. helped clean-up Lake

A 15-year-old driver with a learner's permit
sent two women to the hospital, including
her mother, when she struck the back of a
car that had stopped at the red light on U.S.

driving a Cadillac Deville with her mother in
the passenger seat when she struck the
woman, 61, who was driving a Pontiac
Bonneville and had slowed to stop at the red.
light. The woman was put in a neck brace
and transported to Florida Hospital in
Sebring. She was conscious and seen talking
on a cell phone, although visibly shaken. The
teen was crying on the side of the road as
her mother was put into an ambulance and
transported to Florida Hospital. A Florida
Highway Patrol Trooper said the teen will be
cited, but the charge had not yet been deter-

Father saves son's

life by using CPR


Continued from page 1A
-father's use of CPR, was
,that it kept his son's brain
oxygenated while EMS
were on route.
First responders aren't
equipped to check brain
activity, so the boy was air-
,lifted to check for possible
,brain damage.
Johnson said the child
.was not only conscious, but
."somewhat responsive"
,when being airlifted just
after 11 a.m.
The boy was being held
Sat Tampa General Hostpial
,until Sunday afternoon
because of some conges-
tion, otherwise he is "per-
,fectly fine," Johnson said.
, "The are no side effects
but congestion," he said.
Every HCSO deputy is
trained in CPR, and in a
case like this it is important
:to act quickly.
"The quicker you can get
,(fluid) out of the body, out
of the lungs, the better," he
,said. "You have to keep
that blood pumping and
that brain going."
Attinger said the. situa-
'tion like what happened
Friday is not unusual.'
"Kids are drawn to bod-
ies of water, they want to
go in them," he said.
"When kids are that young
you can't keep your eyes on
them all the time even if
,you're a good parent."
The child's family is
-staying at the Lake Lotela
home temporarily,. Johnson
said. There were no devices
to keep a child from falling
into the pool.
The pool is inside a
screened enclosure, and the
family is unsure how the


boy was able to access the
pool from where the family
was, inside the home.
The Red Cross
Highlands County Service
Center, located at 106
Medical Center Ave., holds
CPR classes every two
weeks.
"You never want scary,
terrible situations like this
to happen but the fact is
that that person wAs able to
use CPR and saved that
child's life," Attinger said.
"You never want to use it
and you never want to use
it on your own child, but if
you need it, it's good to
know it."
The local service center
trains more than 100
Highlands County residents
a year in the life-saving
technique, and even plays a
role in training HCSO
deputies.
"They do trainingi) all
through us; through our
teacher," said Red Cross
volunteer Ann Reinwand,
who works 'out of the
Highlands County location.
"We have taught someone
in their departments to train
them but they do it all
through us."
Reinwand said the CPR
classes need at least four
participants to be held, but
they consistently have at
least that many, of all dif-
ferent ages, genders and
races.
"It's a mixture," she said.
The classes.are $35. For
more information on CPR
classes or other courses
taught by the Highlands
County Red Cross, contact
the Service Center at 382-

Tennessee governor tours

area hit by savage storms


By JUANITA COUSINS
Associated Press
; MURFREESBORO,
Tenn. Tennessee Gov.
Phil Bredesen viewed dam-
age in areas hit by severe
storms that spawned torna-
does across the Southeast,
killed three and injured
dozens.
* "My thoughts and
prayers are with them. It's
very sad," Bredesen said
following a helicopter tour
of the area in central
Tennessee where a a mother
and her infant were killed.
Rescue teams concluded
: a 5-hour search Friday
'night for survivors who
may have been trapped in
::the rubble, but no more vic-
'tims were found, said
Donnie Smith, a spokesman
'for the Tennessee
iEmergency Management
Agency.
' James LaRosa, a
.,National Weather Service
:meteorologist, said
:Saturday morning that
they're focusing on con-
firming the size and severi-
ty of the storms in
Murfreesboro.
An initial report of the
damage said about a 100
'homes were destroyed and
'another 150 with signifi-
;cant damage, Smith said.
"I am astonished,"
Bredesen said. "Where it
:hit is very very intense."
Clyde Atkinson,
.:spokesman for the
,Murfreesboro Police
*,Department, said he
:believes there were three to
:five tornado touchdowns
mostlyy in the northern and
*western parts of the city of
-about 100,000.
Reports of destruction
."were widespread across the
.region Friday, with funnel
'clouds spotted in Kentucky
and Alabama and devastat-
ing winds, huge hail and
heavy rain reported in sev-
eral states.
In South Carolina, a driv-
er trying to avoid storm
debris in the eastern part of
the state was killed Friday,
state Emergency
Management Division
spokesman Derrec Becker


said.
But the damage was
worst in Rutherford
County, Tenn., some 30
miles southeast of
Nashville.
At least 41 people were
injured there, four of them
critically. In Murfreesboro,
at least three dozen homes
were destroyed. Roofs were
peeled from at least a dozen
"homes, and a bulldozer
cleared limbs and other
debris from streets.
The bodies, of Kori
Bryant, in her mid-20s, and
9-week-old Olivia Bryant
were found near their drive-
way. The mother was
apparently trying to get her
baby into a car both
were found outside, and the
infant was in a car seat, res-
cue official Randy White
said.
Andrew Piro, 23, who
was on his way to work
when the tornado struck,
told the Knoxville News-
Sentinel he came upon a
man who said his brother's
wife and child were miss-
ing.
"Outside under the rub-
ble, we found the wife,"
Piro said. "She was right
beside the driveway, about
20 feet away from the
house. She was under a
bunch of wood, I guess part
of the roof. We found the
baby strapped into a car
seat, about another 20 feet
away under a tree. It broke
my heart."
Joe Spencer, 23, a stu-
dent at Middle Tennessee
State University, said he
had only moments to react
but survived a direct hit on
his house.
He yelled at his brother
to take shelter in one of the
home's bathrooms and then
ran .to the other, jumping
into the bathtub while hold-
ing his dog, Lloyd. All were
uninjured.
In southwestern
Kentucky near Mannington,
State Trooper Stu Recke
.said one persofi suffered a
broken hip and leg while
the other suffered a broken
ankle. Both were taken to a
hospital for treatment.

Gerald Snell was elected to the position of chairman of the South Side Community
Redevelopment Agency Advisory Board Thursday night. The position opened upon Shirley
Johnson's resignation from the board. :

Changes on Southside CRA board


Continued from page 1A
Board members themselves and the City
Council as the main CRA board ... The citizens
aren't blind and the negatives will come to the
surface ... when we went from the Main
Southside CRA Board to 'just' the Advisory
Board other things changed and it isn't the
same any more."
Gerald Snell, a sitting member of the board,
was elected to serve as the new chairperson.
LaTunya Ford, who was just appointed to
fill one of the two seats vacated by Paisley and
Johnson but is not yet seated, was elected to
serve as vice-chairperson.
This selection surprised some individuals
present, as other more experienced members
were passed over.


Arnold Davis is the other new member.
In her farewell Paisley reminded the board
that distributing grants is at the board's discre-
tion within certain rules. "The houses that are
greatly in need of work should receive grants
first," she said.
Paisley fought for "free" grants while in
office. By free, it is meant a homeowner does
not need to match the grant.
In her closing remarks, Johnson pleaded
with the board to reach out to the community.
"Get people involved," she said. "Get out there
and talk ask, 'What do you want?' We need
input, and not just from the board. Knock on
doors, get ideas. There is a lot of work to be
done in the Southside, (and the city as a
whole)."


Number of traffic citations down


Continued from page 1A
give out citations," said Sgt.
Manuel Gonzalez of the
HCSO. "We have found there
are less speeders. I'm not
sure if it's the economy, the
sheriff's office targeting
speeders or a combination of
both."
Gonzalez said seeing a
warning in the system defi-
nitely influences whether or
not he will write a ticket, but
even a clean driving record
doesn't mean much under
certain circumstances.
Deputies working on
Washington Boulevard in
Lake Placid recently ticketed
a teenage driver with a spot-
less record for going 48 mph.
The posted speed limit is 35.
"She's old enough to


drive," remarked Deputy
Steve New, who wrote her
the ticket.
The girl's ticket will set
her back $189.
If she wants to keep points
off her license or her insur-
ance payments from going
up, she won't get a break like
leadfoots of years past.
Part of the legislation that
increased the price of some
tickets did away with the 18
percent cost reduction
applied to those electing to
participate in traffic school.
A ticketed driver would
still recieve the same bene-
fits, but it would cost her an
extra $7 worth of paperwork
on top of the price of her
ticket, for a total cost of $196
for her first citation.
Luckily, the fee for 10 to


14 mph didn't increase. Fees
for traveling from 15 to 19
mph over the limit did --
now $239, a fine increase of
20 percent while the cost
for being caught going
between 20 and 29 over the
limit is up to $264.
Speeders hoping to spend
their money on a radar detec-
tor instead of a ticket might
be sad to see Gonzalez run-
ning his "radar."
The radar he uses is actual-
ly a laser,' which is "instant
on" and cannot be read by a
detector until it has already
been used.
He pulls over drivers with
radar detectors all the time.
"I tell them, 'You're just
throwing your money
away,'" he said.

SWAT tactics
examined
after Oakland
cop killings
By PAUL ELIAS
Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO -
Law enforcement experts
call residential entryways
the "fatal funnel" -and
that is where, .two
Oakland police officers
met death when they con-
fronted a barricaded gun-
man, who allegedly had
already killed two other
officerhours earlier.
The SWAT team's deci-
sion to rush an apartment
rather than wait out 'an
armed man is expected to
be the subject of Special
Weapons and Tactics
training classes across the
country, experts said.
And the Oakland
Police Department .said
Friday that its internal
investigation of the
March 21 killings will
include a review by out-
side SWAT experts.
It was the deadliest
incident involving
California officers since
1970.
Lawyers, police train-,
ers and others expect the
examination to determine
whether police followed
departmental guidelines
and whether they, made
tactical or procedural
mistakes.
Police say parolee
Lovelle Mixoti' thot
motorcycle patrolmten
Mark Dunakin and John
Hege with a handgun dur-
ing a traffic stop, then
later killed SWAT team
members Ervin Romans
and Daniel Sakai with an
assault weapon. Another
SWAT officer was
injured, -and Mixon was
killed.
Police have not said
why Dunakin and Hege
stopped Mixon. The two
patrolmen were killed
without drawing their
own weapons.

ership, named Alan Jay Chevrolet
Buick Pontiac GMC Cadillac will

very convenient for our customers,"
said Alan Jay Wildste'in, president
of the Alan Jay Automotive
Network. Wildstein said, "Our cus-
tomers will now be able to directly
compare, say, a Pontiac and a
Chevrolet side-by-side, allowing
them to see which one they like best
without having to drive to different


locations."
Additionally, Alan Jay
Toyota/Scion will be moving less
than a mile north on U.S. 27 to the
building vacated by the
Buick/Pontiac/GMC dealership,
next to Saturn of Sebring by Alan

address will be 404 U.S. 27 North
in Sebring, across the street from


the newly-created GM
"Superstore."

the Toyota store, is enthusiastic
about their new address. "I think
this is going to be a great opportuni-
ty for our customers," Taub said.

Thursday evening. The staff and their families were
thanked at the special recognition dinner and each
received a T-shirt that says 'I was locked down on the
inside April 2, 2009,' a hero's pin to wear proudly on

group of public policy,
non-profit agency and pri-
vate sector financial
experts to discuss the sig-
nificant economic chal-
lenges facing people of all
ages around the world.
According to Charles L.
Evans, president and CEO
of the Federal Reserve
Bank of Chicago, "The
goal of this year's Summit
is to examine how various
regions of the world
approach financial educa-
tion and how, in light of
the global crisis, we can
apply best practices to
ensure that consumers have
the necessary tools and
resources to make wise
financial decisions."
Some key questions that
will be addressed at this
year's Summit include:
Given the current state
of the global economy,
what are the most pressing
personal finance issues
people face today?
What financial literacy
program successes can we
learn from (and what chal-
lenges do we face?
What specific measures
have been successful in
alleviating financial illiter-
acy in other countries and
what role should U.S. poli-
cymakers play in adapting
applicable solutions?
The Summit will be
moderated by personal
finance expert Jean
Chatzky, the best-selling
author who serves as
finance editor for NBC's

By MARY MARGARET
STAIK
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING According
to an e-mail received from
Edwin Ortiz with the
Florida Department of
Veteran Affairs, the
American Legion National
staff is researching individ-
ual claims received from
veterans who are being
charged by the Department
of Veterans Affairs (VA) for'
treatment of service con-
nected injuries or illnesses.
The FDVA and American
Legion are contacting those


veterans to verify that they
were indeed billed for treat-
ment of a service connected
illness or injury.
The billing of private
insurance companies by
Veteran Affairs is an accept-
able practice if a veteran is
treated for a non-military
service-connected injury.
However, according to
Ortiz, if a veteran is treated
by the VA for a military
service-connected injury or
illness, the veteran's private
insurance should not be
billed by the VA. Veterans
Affairs is mandated to cover


the costs for such treatment.
Ortiz advises if you know
of any instances where a
veteran is actually being
billed for the treatment of
service-connected illnesses
or injuries (including any
conditions service-connect-
ed on a secondary basis), or
has had to take action in the
past to correct such billing
practices, contact Jacob
Gadd, assistant director for
Program Management.
Gadd can be reached at
(202) 263-2991 or by e-mail
at jgadd@legion.org.

Question: Last week you
said Dr. Woodward's philoso-
- phy of child-rearing was
rather typical of the advice
given to parents a generation
ago. Apart from the specific
example you cited, how do
your views differ? What is.
the basic distinction between
your perspective and those of
more permissive advice-
givers?
Dr. Dobson: I never met
the man, but I would think
from his writings that
Woodward and I perceive
human nature very different-
ly. He apparently believed in
the "innate goodness" of chil-
dren, which means they will
turn out fine if adults will
simply leave them alone.
Most of Woodward's contem-
poraries believed just that. It
is my conviction, by contrast,
that boys and girls learn (and
become) what they are
taught. Thus, it is our task as
parents to "civilize" them -
to introduce them to manners


and morals and proper behav-
ior.
If it is desirable for chil-
dren to be kind, appreciative
and pleasant, those qualities
should be instilled in them -
not simply hoped for. If we
want to see honesty, truthful-
ness and unselfishness in our
offspring, then these charac-
teristics should be the con-
scious objectives of our early
instructional process. If it is
important to produce respect-
ful, responsible young citi-
zens then we should teach
them first to respect us as
their parents.
In short, heredity does not
equip a child with proper atti-
tudes; we must build the
foundations of character our-
selves.

Question: My 6-year-old
son has always been an ener-
getic child with some.of the
symptoms of hyperactivity.
He has a short attention span

another. I

The Family deficit
disorder.
Dr. James However,
Dobson he's
beginning to have learning
problems in school because
he can't stay in his seat and
concentrate on his lessons.
What should I do?
Dr. Dobson: It sounds like
your son is immature in com-
parison with his age-mates
and could profit from being
retained in the first grade
next year. If his birthday is
late in the school's eligibili-
ty-entrance date, I would ask
the school psychologist to
evaluate his readiness to'
learn. Retaining an immature
boy during his early school


career (kindergarten or first
grade) can give him a social
and academic advantage
throughout the remaining
years of elementary school.
However, it is very impor-
tant to help him "save face"
with his peers. If possible, he
should change schools for at
least a year to avoid embar-
rassing questions and ridicule
from his former classmates.
You have very little to lose
by holding back an immature
boy, since males tend to be'
about six months behind
females in development at
that time.'
The age of a child is the
uorst criterion on which to
base a decision regarding
when to begin a school
career. That determination
should be made according to
specific neurological, psy-
chosocial and pediatric vari-
ables.
Let me add one other sug-
gestion that you might con-

Blue jays can imitate other birds


Birds & Other Wild Things
Ruth and Hank Kowalski
Welcome to our roost. Is there anyone
out there who has not seen a Blue jay and
heard its raucous call? We seriously doubt
it; but.did you know that the blue jay can
imitate the call of the Red-tailed and Red-
shouldered Hawk? When that happens, it
causes much confusion among other birds
in the county.
Our subject bird (Cyanocitta cristata)
today shares in the family corvidae, which
is what ornithologists call this family. They
are probably the most intelligent birds in
the world.
We enjoy watching blue jays at our bird
baths as they really seem to enjoy splashing
and dipping, coming back, a few times after
shaking off water and repeating the action.
Dr. Martin Stapleton told as about a
peculiar incident he observed in his back
yard in Lake Placid. A blue jay was lying
on the ground, wings partly spread, with its
head moving from side to side. At first, Dr.
Stapleton thought the bird was injured. This
strange behavior continued for a while.
Concerned now, thinking the bird was
injured, he went out to the yard to "help"
the bird, and it got up and flew away.
Upon close examination of the area
where the bird had been, revealed an ant
hill. Relating this strange behavior to Fred
Lohrer, ornithologist af(the Archbold
Biological Station, verified that Dr.
Stapleton had observed what is known as
wanting. Why certain birds do this is not
know specifically, but it is surmised that
allowing the ants access to accumulated
mites on the bird's body gave some relief.
Our subject bird measures about 12 inch-
es, is bright blue above, with much white
and black in the wings and tail, white
below, black facial markings and a promi-
nent crest. Known for its raucous jay-jay
cry and the quieter call as it enjoys its bath,
the blue jay will build its nest using twigs,
moss, string, pine needles and bits of cloth,
and line the "cup" with fine rootlets. Two
broods of three to six young birds are
hatched each season from greenish or
brownish eggs spotted with darker shades.
The parents will defend the nest coura-
geously and will rout any cat or dog that
may pose a threat.

Blue Jays may be the most intelligent
birds in the world.

Any person unlucky enough to stray too
close to nesting jays will also be attacked;
the birds will use beak and claws to dis-
courage any intruder. The nest is usually in
a pine or oak, eight to 35 feet above
ground. Both parents help in building the
nest. Incubation is by female alone and
takes 16-18 days. Young are tended by both
parents and will leave the nest at 17-21
days, probably independent after three more
weeks, but may be partly fed for a period of
days.
We have seen juveniles almost as large as
the parent bird "begging" for a hand out.
The blue jay is one of our favorite "back-
yard" birds as they almost always add to
the excitement at our feeders.
According to the Archbold-Audubon
Lake Placid Christmas Bird Count, the five-
year average count stand at 157. It will be
interesting to see the data concerning the
possible increase in mortality of the blue
jay due to the mosquito borne virus that has
yet to be positively identified, and we know
has killed scrub jays.
Until next time, we wish you great bird-
ing adventures and please call us with your
unusual bird sightings or bird behavior. Get
out and enjoy our Highlands County natural
places; recharge your appreciation of all
Creation -it works for us.

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


Volunteers needed at HLT

Theatre has urgent need for box office, maintenance help


By CATHY SCHREIMA
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING It's been said
that life is better with a little
drama in it. If you want to
add some drama to your life
what better way then volun-
teering at Highlands Little
Theatre?
It takes more than actors,
directors and producers to get
a show on stage. Highlands
Little Theatre welcomes vol-
unteers in every area.
Administrative Manager
Vanessa Logsdon said they
have an urgent need for box'
office and building mainte-
nance volunteers.
Box office volunteers are
needed weekdays between
the hours of 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
or 5:30-8:30 p.m. Shifts are
six weeks on and six weeks
off after each show closes.

Tuttle is

Crafter of

the Month

Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID Gail
Tuttle is the April Crafter of
the Month at the Caladium
Arts and Crafts Co-opera-
tive. She was a teacher for 30
years and raised four chil-
dren before leaving the cold
winters of Ohio and retiring
to beautiful Lake Placid.
She soon found- that she
had too much time on her
hands and signed up for a
class at the Caladium Co-op.
The teacher of the class
invited her to a quarterly
meeting and potluck dinner.
She enjoyed the fellowship
and creative activities at the
Co-op and in October 1997
submitted a painted vest to
the Jury Committee. Her
work was accepted and
Tuttle became a member of
the Caladium Co-op.
Over the years she has cre-
ated many fabric projects
such as aprons, casserole car-
riers, placemats, beach totes,
coasters, baked potato bags
and appliqued tea towels.
Tuttle has also dabbled in
creating jewelry with natural
saltwater pearls and cro-
cheted scarf necklaces as
well as many other crafts' that
she has enjoyed making.
'Tuttle has not only been a
prolific crafter but a very
active member of the Co-op.
She was president-elect in


tutes on an as needed call in
basis," Logsdon said, who
added that training is provid-
ed.
Volunteers must be famil-
iar and ,comfortable working
on a personal computer or
willing to learn, have experi-
ence with customer service
and/or a desire to help peo-
ple.
Logsdon said they ,are
seeking a chairperson for
building maintenance but
also need volunteers for rou-
tine upkeep and repairs on a
regular basis. For example,
changing air-conditioner fil-
ters and light bulbs, repaint-
ing doors and ceilings as
needed, as well as other
repairs and odd jobs.
Other volunteer jobs
include data entry, house
managers, brushes and
brooms, costume, make-up,


Glad Hatters, Showstoppers
and staffing Anthony's
Lounge.
A general membership
meeting is held at 7 p.m. the
first Thursday of every
month.
Logsdon noted the many
benefits of membership that
include helping bring quality
live theatre to the Highlands
County community, meeting
new friends, and attending
the volunteer dress rehearsal
before each show.
"There are multi-genera-
tional opportunities. No one
is too young or too old.
Volunteers can work as much
or as little as they want to, "
Logsdon said.

Isa -5i-:10-11says, "For as
thd:rain cometh down, and
th di ow from heaven, and
f retitneth not thither, but
watereth the earth, and
maketh it bring forth and
bud, that it may give seed to
the sower, and bread to the
eater: So shall my word be
forth out of my mouth: it shal-
unto me void, but it shiflf.
1h that which I please, and it hil'
ero Fin the thing whereto I sent it." The
word of God illustrated here as a rainfall,
just as water nourish a plant, God.'s word
produces life in the heart of man. God's
word is nourishing and refreshing. Where
are you today? Do you need God to speak to
your storm? He has made His word known
to us. And as the aptre says, it will not
return back to DHided, but it shall
accomplish that w e please. Whatever
your case may be, t wer can be founded
in the word of G e words of a dear
friend or family ca ne thing today, but

Rain sensors to be given away to homeowners in Highlands County


More than
1,000 Highlands.

benefited from a
Southwest

District
Community
Education grant
NewS From that was awarded
The to the Highlands
Watershed Soil and Water.
oe Bgess Conservation- -.
od A District last year.
Thousands upon thousands of gal-
lons of water are saved daily as a
result of the low-flow shower-'
heads that were given away to citi--
zens with the funds from that -
grant.. "
We, at HSWCD are happy to
announce that we have been award-
ed the-Community Educationilgranti
again this year and we are going to_
be giving away free rain sensors to_
*thecitizens of Highlands County.
The HSWCD and Highlands
County Extegsion are teaming up
and plan to give presentations to
the homeowners associations in
Highlands County. These presenta-
tions will include information
about the free rain sensors, how to
installthem and what their func-


'tion is. In addition, the Extension
staff will present on Florida
Friendly landscaping and irriga-
tion. A representative from Florida
Irrigation Supply Inc. will be 'on
hand to explain the technical infor-
mation about the sensors and
answer qilestions. These presenta-
tions- are, pit together to encourage
homeowners to save and conserve
water around their homes.
How many times have you been-
driving along in the rain and seen
someone's lawn sprinklers going
off? All of that water is being
wasted and water is such a pre-,
cious resource that we really can't
.afford to be wasting it.
Rain sensors are designed to"
Sdetermiine if enough rainfall has-
occirred in order to skip an irriga-
tion cycle. This keeps your system
from over watering your lawn. The
:electrical connection between the
sensor and your sprinkler system
controller is interrupted when a
certain amount of rain triggers the
device. The sensor breaks the elec-
trical connection so that electricity
cannot floW to either the sprinkler
valves or to a pump start.
The rain sensors that will be.
purchased from the grant funds
will be the Hunter Rain-Clik and
Mini-Clik brands. According to the

irrigation experts, "Most rain sens-
ing devices must first accumulate a
set amount of rainfall before a
switch is activated that interrupts
the circuit from the controller and
shuts off the system. In that "accu-
mulation time," the system will
continue to water. Only this type of
sensor with its unique quick,
response feature, can command the
controller to shut off immediately
when it starts to rain. The devices
can be mounted on an eave or any
flat vertical surface like a wall or
fence."


Rain sensors can benefit y
the homeowner, in many way
Saves Money. Whether
pay for city water or spend el
tricity running a pump, the m
you save over time will more
pay for the rain sensor.
Extends Sprinkler Syste
Life Span. Irrigation systems
made up of moving parts. If t
system parts are utilized less
quently (during the rainy seas
they last longer.
Protects Water Resource
limiting.the over use of your


kler system, rain sensors reduce
excess water run-off that carries
fertilizers and pest control chemi-
cals into our shared water supply.
Conserves Water. Less water
is wasted when less supplemental
water is needed for your turf and in
your garden.
According to some studies in
Florida, the use of rain sensors
averaged a 45 percent savings in
water for single-family residential
water use.
sy photo To know what type of rain sen-
ent
sor your system requires, you need
rs to to know what type of system you
have (i.e. 24 volt or 220 timer).
Even if you aren't a member of one
of the homeowner's associations
that we will be presenting to, you
syoun can purchase a rain sensor for your
lec- system at a local hardware store or
oney off the Internet. They are relatively
than inexpensive and the money you
save on your water bill, will more
than make up for the cost.

Pisces should put enjoyment on the front burner


Aries (March 21-April 20) Aries,
there's not much to keep you busy this
week, so you'll have to figure out a few
activities to keep you busy. Or maybe
you want to catch up on some quiet
time.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) You
could use a break, Taurus, but it's not
possible this week. Work responsibili-
ties continue to pile up and it'll take all
of your energy to muddle through them.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) Gemini,
put others first when planning a party.
Factoring guests' likes and dislikes will
help ensure most people in attendance
will enjoy themselves.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Cancer,
your mate could get on your nerves this
week, but only if you take what he or
she says to heart. Consider that this per-
son is speaking out of frustration.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Speak up,
Leo. If you get your voice heard, others
will take you much more seriously.
Scorpio could be your biggest opponent.
If you can get past him or her, you're in
the clear.


Holoscomz


Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) It's been a
few months of rough sailing, Virgo. But
things have finally ,quieted down and
you're in a groove. You will find that
daily activities become much easier
now.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -A big
move could be in your future, Libra.
Others may be apprehensive about your
ability to assimilate, but deep down you
know that you will be just fine.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Scorpio,
you're not quite ready for the big
changes that are in store for you in the
weeks to come. However, you will cope
just like you always do.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
- Sagittarius, there will be plenty of
time for having fun this weekend. Until
then, buckle down and get some work
done. Friday is a promising love day.


Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) A
change of outlook and attitude can result
in more things working in your favor,
Capricorn. Look to a diplomat like
Aquarius for advice on how to put your
best foot forward.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) Don't
run from change, Aquarius. Rather,
embrace the things that come your way
and you'll be a stronger, well-rounded
person for your efforts.
SPisces (Feb. 19-March 20) It's been
more work than fun, and Pisces feels
like a dull boy or girl. Let loose this
week and put enjoyment on the front
burner.

SENIOR SCENE'


An

American

home: The

history of

the White

House

' In 1861, when a Union
militia was called. in to pro-
tect the White House as ten-
sions rose around the nation's
capital, soldiers spilled from
one elegant room into anoth-
er, begging for food in the
kitchen. In a starkly different
landscape almost a century
later, King George VI and
Queen Elizabeth chatted pri-
vately with the Roosevelts in
a well-dressed reception
room marking the royal'
family's first visit since
1860. Arind on a summer day
in 1964, the American quest
for equality hit a powerful
new stride when Lyndon B.
Johnson sat down in the East
Room to sign the Civil Rights
Act.
But ordinary things happen
,n the White House, too.
Despite the constant glare of
media, the daily influx of vis-
itors and the stress that typi-
cally clings to those in charge
of running a nation, the
,White House is also a refuge,
a place where presidents can
reconnect to the things that
make them ordinary and
human. Ulysses S.. Grant
ended each day feeding treats
to his horses in the .stables.
Richard Nixon spoke to the
portraits of past presidents in
a quiet attempt to channel
their wisdom. John F.
Kennedy discovered a new
interest in roses.
The White House, home to
America's finest leaders and
*stage for its most critical
moments, has evolved dra-
matically since its construc-
tion:cobegan. in 1792. When


John Adams moved into the
new building in November,
1800, there was no running
water or electricity, and the
telephone hadn't yet been
invented. The East Room was
a mere unfinished shell,
where Abigail Adams hung
laundry from clotheslines.
Only small dirt roads con-
nected the sprawling mansion
to a city center dominated by
open, rolling terrain, with
views that cascaded toward
the Potomac River with little
more than trees and grazing
livestock to interrupt the
view.
But that serene landscape
changed dramatically two
years into the War of 1812,
when the British set fire to
several government buildings
including the White
House. The only object
saved, thanks to Dolley
Madison, was an immense
portrait of George
Washington hanging in the
State Dining Room. (It's the
oldest item in the White
House today.) Three years
later, James Monroe moved
back in. By 1830, the North
and South Porticos had been,
constructed, and a century
later the East Wing was cre-
ated. The West Wing was

rebuilt and expanded in 1934.
But changes go beyond
architectural, as the character
of the White House is con-
stantly evolving from one
president to the next. John
Adams planted a magnolia
tree, now 200 years old, with
branches that fill tall win-
dows on the dining room's
south side. Franklin D.
Roosevelt converted a long
cloakroom into a small movie
theater. Brand new bowling
lanes were all the rage during
Harry Truman's administra-
tion. Dwight D. Eisenhower
added a putting green outside
the Oval Office. / And
President Clinton made good
use of a new jogging track
encircling the South grounds'
driveway.
The imprint of each great
leader still 'hngs in the air.
It's a powerful sensation, one
that Jacqueline Kennedy rev-
eled in. "I love the Lincoln
Room the most," she said.
"When you see that great
bed, it looks like a cathedral.
To touch something I know
he had touched was a real
link with him."
Today, the public can
enjoy similar experiences on
self-guided tours scheduled
up to six months in advance

White House and the sur-
rounding President's Park,

Park, Sherman Park, and the
Ellipse, are all, part of the
National Park System. The

can view a video, explore,
exhibits, and glimpse a col-
lection of more than 30,000
objects, including antiques
and original artwork.
When Barack Obama and
his family moved into the
White House this January,
they chose, items from the
collection to decorate their
new home, gently shaping
each room to their liking as
they settled into traditions
that began more than two
centuries ago. It's one small
way they are making this his-
toric house their own.

Fresh and health tips

for delicious dinners


Whether dining out or
making a night of it at
home, it's easy to turn
everyday meals into special
treats by adding healthy,
versatile and affordable
options. With more than 40
years of experience, Tony
Seta is one of only 61
Certified Master Chefs in
the United States,. an
accreditation awarded by
the American Culinary
Federation. Now, Seta is
serving up five tasty tips to
makeover your next meal,
at home or out on the town.

Dining Out
It's always tough to
decide on a restaurant for a
large group with varied
tastes. Seta suggests opting
for a variety of sharable
appetizers and small plates
to satisfy everyone's crav-
ings. Restaurants with com-
munal bar tables and spe-
cialty cocktails also make a
night out with friends a.fun,
shared feast.
Sticking to a diet can
be a challenge when dining
out, but grilled options are
an easy and delicious way
to savor healthy options.
Enjoy leaner cuts of meat
and seasonal vegetables
prepared with olive oil
instead of butter and lay-
ered with fresh herbs and
spices to amplify taste. To
bring out the best flavor
with no additives, try mar-
ket fresh fish seared over a
"wood-burning grill.
Bonefish Grill, an upscale
casual restaurant in 29
states around the country,
specializes in wood-grilling
and features an innovative
menu of fresh, seasonal
offerings that can be grilled
to perfection and topped
with a variety of original
sauces.
The best tasting food
is always based on the
freshest ingredients select-


ed at the peak of perfection
and doesn't have to be*
expensive or unattainable.
Look for offerings that are
timely and seasonal, such
as Bonefish Grill's
Rockefeller topping, made
with sharp, creamy spinach
and succulent lump crab,
served on a variety of
regionally-available. fish
such as Arctic Charr,
Dorado and Wolfish.

Eating In
The old adage says
drink white wine with
white meat and red wine
with red meat. "Out with
the old, and in with the
new," says Seta. There are
plenty of delicious red
wines that are perfect for
fish, seafood, and white
meat. When there is, no
sommelier to guide your
wine choices at home,
Seta's rule of thumb is to
pair lighter red wines, such
as Sangiovese, with deli-
cate, flaky fish, while full-
bodied, robust wines like
Shiraz stand up against
heartier, buttery seafood
and shellfish.
Sauces and condi-
ments can jazz up a meal
and add a whole new flavor
profile to salmon or chick-
en. Try warm Mango Salsa
on top of simply grilled
tilapia for a flavorful,
healthy treat, or whip up
Seta's favorite Bonefish
Grill's signature
Chimichurri Sauce for a
garlicky, fresh herb kick.

Economize ... a penny


here, a penny there


In these financially trying times I learned
a wonderful household tip from my daugh-
ter-in-law. (Every mother's son should have
such a Wife.) .She reuses the coffee filters ...
four or five times. Naomi showed me how
she rinses them after she has made the cof-
fee, reusing them until the bottom seam
opens. Visualize this; She gently holds the
filter upside down, shaking out the bulk of
thb grinds. Then holding the top edges of the
filter, she lets the water run through it.
Once I found out about this money -sa\ ing
tip I improved upon it. Never, never spread
the filter and let the water run through it.
The force f the water tears the bottom
seam.
In the new and improved method you must
first let the filter and the grinds dry out. The
best place to store them while they are dry-
ing is right in the basket of the coffee maker.
However, if you must use the coffee pot
again before the reusable filter is ready,
carefully remove the entire filter with the
grinds in it and store them someplace else to
complete drying. An attractive mug will do
as a temporary holder. This way, your
kitchen won't look cluttered. Rather, it will
look pretty ... even decorative.
Step two is to let the water (cold so you
won't waste electricity on the hot water
heater) run gently over the outside of the fil-
ter. Held upside down, of course.
In case you have to make a fresh pot of
coffee wpile waiting for the reusable one to
cycle dry it is permissible to use a new filter.
I insist the reuse (even unto five) does not

change the flavor or aroma of the coffee,
although while the grinds are drying (in that
decorative cup) the kitchen may always
smell of coffee but if you want the house to
smell homey or are selling the house isn't
that a plus?
I dedicate myself to find more helpful
hints for saving money. If you have any
hints to share, e-mail me and I will print
them in future columns. After all, a penny"
saved is a penny earned.
On second thought ... does the cost of cold
water plus the sewer charge outweigh the
cost of the filter? Hmmm ... I don't want to
think about that now.

tributing columnist to the News-Sun, can be e-
mailed at timely87@comcast.net.

Whether you're going to the hospital for
a few tests or major surgery, chances are
either you or a family member will have
questions involving your care. It can be dif-
ficult in today's hospital environment, how-
ever, to identify just who your caregiver is
when orderlies, technicians, housekeeping
- and even the general public might
also be dressed in scrubs.
A recent study in "Nursing Management"
magazine sheds light on how difficult it can
be for patients and families to easily single
out nurses from other hospital staff. Patients
and families interviewed for the study said
it was important to know who to approach
when they had concerns and to be able to
identify nurses and differentiate them from
other health care staff. However, family
members reported feeling embarrassed
when they approached the wrong person
with their questions, which could easily
happen as similarly dressed staff members
entering a patient's room could be from as
many as 13 different roles. This causes an
unsure feeling that could possibly keep
them from asking a question or providing
important information.
Several of the nation's hospitals have
taken the issue to heart and have begun
implementing uniform programs that help
patients quickly identify a hospital employ-
ee's role by the color that they are wearing.
For example, all nurses might be dressed in
navy blue, nursing assistants in hunter green
and respiratory therapists in khaki.
Hospitals include a brochure in each
patient's admissions packet and hang.
posters in patient rooms showing the differ-
ent staff positions and the colors they wear.
"Think about how quickly you can identi-
fy a police officer because of the blue uni-
form. The idea is to bring the same
approach into the health care setting," says
Amanda Hutton, program manager for Suite
Styles, a popular color-by-discipline uni-
form program developed by health care
manufacturer Medline Industries, Inc.
"Patients want to know who's in charge of
their care. And research shows that patients
who are actively involved in their own care,
and communicate with their health care
team have a safer, more satisfactory experi-
ence."
Patient satisfaction has taken on an even
greater importance for hospitals because
most are now required. to submit their
results from a survey called the Hospital
Consumer Assessment of Healthcare
Providers and Systems in order to receive


Color-coded uniforms help patients identify
nurses and differentiate them from other

full reimbursement from the Centers for
Medicare & Medicaid Services. Last year's
survey highlighted the fact that frontline
staff members, such as nurses, continue to
have the greatest impact on the patient's
overall hospital experience. In fact, the top
five national priority issues for improve-
ment in the report all focused on the ability
of hospital staff to effectively communicate
information and empathy to their patients.
Those facts, along with studies showing
that what a nurse wears may influence the
nurse-patient relationship and affect first
impressions, can create a dilemma for hos-
pital administrators who currently have an
"anything goes" dress code. There can be
hard feelings when nurses feel they .can no
longer express their personality by wearing
cartoon prints or changing, colors every
other day.
"While .a color-by-discipline uniform
program does limit a nurse's color choice,
most of the hospitals we work with incorpo-
rate a wide range of styles to accommodate
individual preferences," says Hutton. "The
goal is to help the patient with identification
and instill confidence that they are being
treated by an organized, professional team."

form programs, visit www.suitestyles.com.
