Rosary pea vine beautiful, but deadly


Photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Called rosary pea, or crab eyes, abrus preca-
torius is an exotic plant that originated in
India.


* Editor's Note: This is a continu-
ation of a series of stories about
invasive plants found in
Highlands County,
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.comr
SEBRING The rosary pea
vine (Abrus precatorius) is pretty,
with delicate, alternating leaves.
The flowers are small and pale
violet to pink. The seeds are a bril-
liant scarlet, with a daub ,of black


at the base, resembling a lady bug.
But don't let its beauty fool
you, as it has gardeners in the
past. According to the University
of Florida's Center for Aquatic
ahd Invasive .Plants, this vine is
extremely intrusive, and worse, its
seeds containing abrin, one of
the most deadly plant toxins -
are highly poisonous to humans
and all animals except birds. A
single seed is capable killing an
adult.


The toxin is inside the seed.
That means mature seeds, which
develop a hard coat, are slightly
less dangerous than immature
seeds, which are soft.
Any of the seeds when chewed
cause severe stomach pain, nau-
sea, diarrhea, coma, circulatory
collapse and death.
Because they are beautiful, the
mature seeds have been used in

Voters may get another look at class size law


State house votes to put

issue back on ballot in 2010


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING The Republican-con-
trolled Florida House has voted largely
on a party line basis, with most
Democrats opposed, for a 2010 ballot
proposal to loosen class size limits.
Voters in 2002 passed the state con-
stitutional amendment capping classes
at 18 to 25 students, depending on
grade level.
Those limits are being phased in and
will go into full effect in 2010-11.
' Critics, including many school offi-
"cials and Republican lawmakers, say
it's too rigid, will cost too much and
;divert money from other needs includ-
4:; ing teacher salaries.


"It is undoable. It is inflexible, and it
cannot be funded," said Rep. Will
Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel.
The limits presently must be met on
a school average basis under the phase-
in. The ballot proposal would keep that
requirement and allow individual class-
es to exceed the limits by three to five
students.
This flexibility would allow for an
influx of students during the year.
"As students come into the district
we have to accept them ... if you plan
well and have your school levels,
staffing at 18 to 1, that next student in
would cause us to hire another teacher
and get another portable," said Mike
Averyt, assistant superintendent of


Business Operations for the Highlands
County School District. "That doesn't
make any sense."
This flexibility to meet class size on
a school-by-school basis could save
Highlands County a lot of money.
"We would probably have to add 80
or 90 more teachers (to meet the class-
by-class requirements)," Averyt .said.
"That will save us those dollars if we
don't have to be as strict as originally
intended."
The state already has spent nearly
$16 billion on school construction, hir-
ing more teachers and other expenses to
phase in the class size amendment.
Highlands County has hired 160
teachers since 2002 for the sole pur-
pose of decreasing class size and the
main reason for two-story additions at
six middle and high schools was the
class size amendment, Averyt said.
"They wouldn't have been built if we


didn't have the class size amendment,"
he said.
In the meantime, the number of
portable classrooms ballooned from 80
to 180, he said.
The House voted 78-41 for the meas-
ure (HJR 919) on Friday. It next will go
to the Senate, which in prior years has
rejected proposals to weaken the limits.
In the 40-member Senate an amend-
ment takes 24 votes, and the GOP has a
26-14 majority. Some Republican sena-
tors, though, have opposed past efforts
to weaken the class size amendment.
Proposals failed by four votes in 2006
and five votes in 2005, but those meas-
ures were for an even looser district-
wide average.
If the proposal passes, it would go on
the November 2010 ballot and require
60 percent voter approval.

The Associated Press contributed to this
story.


'We would
probably have
to add 80 or
90 more
teachers (to
meet the
class-by-class
requirements).
That will save
us those
dollars if we

Horse owners

warned as,

mosquito

season nears
By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Charles H.
Bronson, Florida Agriculture
iand Consumer Services
'Commissioner, is warning all
',I.horse owners the season of
`mosquito-borne diseases is
rapidly approaching. While
the biggest danger lies to the
north, where recent floods are
: .receding and standing water is
'a problem, even .drier Central
Florida needs to beware.'
Liz Compton, spokesperson
Sfor the commissioner, said
,.that so far this year six cases
Iof equine encephalitis have
been corroborated. The clbs-
,est case is in Lake County..
By this time in 2008 there
had been 12 cases diagnosed,
Sshe said. "In terms of num-
bers, we're in better shape this
year."
But that doesn't mean horse
owners should relax. Of the
cases last year anid this, all but
one of the horses that con-
.,tracted eastern equine
encephalitis had not been vac-
cinated, and it had been 16
months since the vaccinated
horse had had a booster shot.
"It's clear," Compton said,
S"that vaccinations make a dif-
ference."
Dr. John Yelvington, of
,,,Ridge Large Animal
Veterinary Services, strongly
agreed.,
': "Actually it's already late
in the year," he said. The wis-
est prevention, he explained,
'I is to inoculate animals in
January and February; before
two things coincide to create
the encephalitis danger.
Birds flying up from South
and Central America, return-
: ing to their summer grounds,
,.typically arrive with the mos-
quito season.
The birds carry the virus,
which is passed, on to the mos-
i quitos when they bite, and
*, then passed on again'when the
mosquitos move to other tar-
gets like a horse.
;A "It takes up to 14 days to,
establish full immunity,"
I .Yelvington said.
Young horses need to begin
a series of three injections
starting at three months, then
' ,four months and finally' six
months. A yearly injection
after that is usually enough to
keep a horse safe.
For the best protection,
Yelvington recommends the
four encephalitis (east, west,
SVenezuelan and west Nile)
', vaccination, plus flu rhino and
rabies inoculations every year.
Two years he saw a case' of
rabies in a Venus' horse. The
horse attacked anything in its
path before it died.

SEBRING After a few
hours of hard work, truck-
loads of invasive plants
were removed from
Highlands Hammock State
Park during the exotic plant
removal.
Volunteers helped out
from 9 a.m. to noon
Saturday during an Earth
Day celebration at
HIighlands Hammock,' an
annual event that includes a
5K run in the morning and
a concert in the evening.
Earth Day is on
Wednesday.
"This s one of our
favorite campgrounds,"
said Janice Webb of Jensen


Beach, who has been com-
ing to the park with her
husband foi more than a
decade.
It was Webb's first time
participating in the plant
removal, but she had
planned to camp at the park
and attend the concert
before she found out the
exotic plant removal was .
going on that morning
through the Internet.
"We are going to retire in
a few years, knock on
wood, but this is something
we are interested in," she
said. "We said, 'Let's bring

man was transported to
'Florida Hospital Lake
Placid with lacerations to
his head Saturday morning
after a reported armed rob-
bery.
According to Lt. Jess
Purvis of. the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office, the
man was approached by
three or four men he knew
by first name only and was
asked for money.


One of the men was
armed with a machete and
struck the victim over the
head several times when he
resisted.
"My understanding was
he fought back and they
didn't actually get anything
from him," Purvis said.
Deputies were dispatched
to Highlands Boulevard in
Sun 'N Lake south at 6:15
a.m. Saturday and found the
man with non-life threaten-
ing injuries, mainly to the
head.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Now is not the time for


commuter rail in Florida


F loridians by the millions support
Florida Forever, one of the most
impressive programs in Florida's
entire portfolio of public policy a file,
regrettably, with few brilliant points of
reference these days.


Florida Forever is also leg-
endary nationwide and
enjoys broad-based public
support because it simply
makes so much good sense.
It is a land-acquisition pro-
gram that protects the
intriguing features that make
our state extraordinary: our
stunning landscapes, water-
ways, wildlife and unique
environmental habitats.
Funded by fees on real-
estate transactions, Florida
Forever was created in 1999
by Gov. Jeb Bush and the
Legislature and has preserved
more than 600,000 acres of
land for water resources, nat-
ural areas, wildlife habitat
and parks. Along the way, it
provides employment and
;enhances tourism both enor-
mously important to our
state.
A public opinion poll
recently conducted by a
group of environmental
advocacy organizations
showed that 81 percent of


Social justice is teaching
shorthand for opposition
Editor:
According to the latest Phyllis
Schlafly report, the reason the 18- to
29-year-old Christians voted for Obama
is they have been misled by what is
being taught in the schools called
social justice, which is not social jus-
tice.
It is very easy to become confused
when one is young and being influ-

teaching our teachers that socializing
our children is education rather than
teaching them to achieve their individ-
ual potential. To disregard what their
parents have taught them and make
their own choices aided by experts to
change their sexual morals.
In 1983 Humanist magazine featured
an article boasting the battle for
* mankind's future must be waged and
won in the public school classroom.
The, classroom must and will become
an arena of conflict between the old
and the new, the rotting corpse of
Christianity and new faith of human-
ism.
In 1980 many anti-war activists of
the '60s and '70s acquired a new iden-
tity and became college professors of
which William Ayers was one. He was
founder of an organization that set
bombs in public buildings such as the
United States Capitol and Pentagon,
escaping prosecution only because of
government misconduct in collecting
evidence. He later boasted: Guilty as
hell, free as a bird.
After September 11, 2001, the NYT
quoted him as saying: "I don't regret
setting the bombs; I just feel we didn't


Floridians support the 2009
continuation of Florida
Forever, but it's now in seri-
ous jeopardy in the
Legislature.
One hates to conclude that
the 13 percent of Floridians
who told pollsters they have
an "unfavorable impression"
of Florida Forever are law-
makers.
We know they're not. But
lawmakers, overwhelmed
with problems that defy easy
solution, may be conflicted
when facing the well-heeled
industry that wants to build a
commuter rail across central
Florida and sees the source of
money intended for Florida
Forever as a good one to raid.
While building a rail to
link central Florida cities at
some time in the future might
be a smart thing to do, that
time isn't now.
The smart thing to do with
real-estate transaction fees
today is spend them at a time
when the state can get dra-


matically more for its money,
acquiring land at reasonable
prices in today's economy.
It's a buyer's market, and if
the state has from time to
time paid on the high end for
land preservation, today pres-
ents the time for evening
things out and getting bar-
gains unheard of even a year
ago.
As the "mother of Florida
Forever," Sen. Paula
Dockery, R-Lakeland, puts it,
"There are some great deals
out there, and we're missing
some great opportunities."
That is, if lawmakers -refuse
her proposal to go forward
with a "mini Florida
Forever," using the same doc
stamps, but on a smaller scale
in accordance with the reali-
ties of the market.
Ms. Dockery is a staunch
opponent of the controversial
CSX commuter rail project,
but her support for Florida
Forever is more important to
the greater and ongoing good
of Florida than an unproven
regional project for which
there is certainly nothing
close to the massive support
that Florida Forever enjoys
and deserves.

Democrat.


TODAY'S LETTERS
do enough." He was quoted in the NYT
magazine saying, "This society is not a
just and fair decent place." He enrolled
in Columbia Teacher's college in
Chicago, emerging with a Ph.D. as a
professor of education from the
University of Illinois, launching a new
career changing classroom curricula
instead of setting bombs.
President Chavez quoted in a speech
"Education is the motor force of revo-
lution."
Ayers has been on a decades-long
mission to transform education into
anti-American indoctrination to get
young people to demand government to
control the economy, politics and the
culture. As professor of education, he is
the leading advocate teaching students
to believe they are victims of an unjust,
oppressive and racist America. After a
few years of this indoctrination, young
people are ripe targets for community
organizers to mobilize them to vote and
carry out revolution.
, The national association of scholars
report that social justice today is under-
stood to mean access to income
through state-sponsored redistribution.
Does this sound like Obama's "spread
the wealth around?"
David Horowitz says it another way:
Social justice is teaching shorthand for
opposition to America's traditions of
individual justice and free market eco-
nomics, teaching students that America
is an oppressive society that teaches
racist, sexist, discrimination against
women, non-whites working Americans
and the poor:....
The lobbyist for social justice teach-
es sponsors conferences to mold the
thinking of teachers, which is well
attended at taxpayers expense. National

Association for Multi-cultural
Education sponsors seminars with ses-
sions entitled "Our work as social jus-
tice educators," teaching social justice
in elementary schools, forcing it on
aspiring teachers to mold their attitudes
and character to reflect these beliefs ...
Some social justice professional
development seminars have urged
teachers to begin teaching this philoso-
phy to children as young as 2 years-
old. I think we would, all agree, at this
age, children are very easily influenced
and believe what their teachers tell
them.
When we think about it, one of the
best ways to change a nation is to start
in the classroom. Parents are dropping
their children off for someone else to
teach at younger ages. There is a real
danger of our children being an exten-
sion of those who care for them instead
of parents. I'm praying that all who
read this, both parents and teachers,
will give this serious thought.

Taxes and tea parties


As I sit here and type this,
it is April 15. For those too
young or who have somehow
missed this, this was the last
day you could file your
income tax return without
being late. OK, it was also
the last day you could ask
for more time so you would-
n't be considered late. Fact
of the matter is, if you are
reading this and didn't deal
with your taxes one way or
another yet, you're late.
Most people aren't cheer-
ful about this day. I can't
think of anyone at the
moment who goes, "goody,
goody, goody! I get to pay
taxes!" Even people who get
refunds aren't too thrilled,
because filing taxes without
doubt falls into the category
of "things that are not fun to
do."
I know Don doesn't enjoy
trying to figure out our
taxes. He's the one who
takes time to gather our
information and make sense
out of it before he gives to
our very nice accountant
who makes it all nice and
pretty for the IRS. It takes
.Don a lot of time to do this,
and he's usually cranky by
the time he's done. So I try
not to antagonize him during
this time.
One of the reasons Idon't
mind letting Don handle our'
finances is that he is,
between the two of us, the
more responsible one and he
manages .them in an excel-
lent manner.TI'm not worried
that he'll go and waste our
money on silly or stupid
things, or drag us into debt
to pay for something unnec-
essary. He sometimes takes
the whole "things that are
unnecessary" to extremes,
which is why we still don't
have a flat screen television
or a Wii. But he's overall
trustworthy.
If the federal government
handled money as well as
my darling husband I might
not mind taxes so much. But
let's be honest here: Most of
us don't have a lot of faith in
the government's judgment
when it comes to fiscal mat-

ters. Let's not ignore that
leaders of both parties seem
content to keep the govern-
ment spending more money
than it has you or I try to
do that, we eventually land
into some trouble. In
Washington DC, it seems to ,'
be business 'as usual. '
So I'm not surprised that
large numbers of Americans
went out today and protested
high taxes in "tea parties"
across the nation. The
Upcoming budget .particular-'
ly riles many of us it
seems that President
Obama's answer to the cur-.
rent economy is to spend,
more, and take over more.
That makes a lot of
Americans nervous.
I didn't get to any-local
,get together sometimes
life means yoh can't dd
everything. But I'm glad that
such gatherings are still
legal in this country. As they
should be. Whoever we are -
Republican or Democrat, lib-
eral or conservative we all
have the right to express our
opinion. In a group even.
We need to be careful
being critical when people
exercise their rights. Yes,
people who have the right to
protest might protest some-
thing you like. Yes, you can
criticize the message. But
among my varied philoso-
phies is this: Do not deny a
right to someone that you
want to have yourself.
I don't know if there, will
be any impact from the
protests today. I don't know
if it's just a flash in the pan
or the start of something big.
I do know that April 15
will come around again next.
year. Maybe the federal gov-
ernment will have learned a
thing or two about finances
by then. If they need tips,
they could always ask Don.

*been edited down to nothing
but a close-up of Cyrus. She
had no idea she had made the
cut until she went to a cast
screening in Nashville a few
days before the film opened.
She wanted to shout with
joy -when she saw herself on
the screen, she said, but did-
n't.
"I yelled a little bit inside,
but -my friend yelled out
'That's you!'" she said.
"I guess they liked my big
:hair," Martinez said.
It wasn't the first screen
time for Martinez,, but her
'other work has been in televi-
sion. She's done several cor-
porate training videos, as
-well as commercials for
G6odfather's Pizza and the
'military. Currently, she's also
..working on a songwriting
t:career.
Martinez, who has a
:degree in musical theater
-from the University of
;Florida and lived in New
- 'York City doing musical the-
ater for several years before,


moving to Nashville in 2006,
said the movie role came
about in the usual way.
"I have an agent here in
Nashville who is a friend of
mine from Sebring, Melinda
Eisnaugle, and she told me
they were auditioning for the
Miley Cyrus movie, and I
just went and auditioned for
it and got the part," Martinez
said.
Around 70 dancers were at
the audition, and 10 were
picked to dance alongside
Cyrus and a barn-full of
extras for the scene.
"Twenty or 30 of us went
inr at a time," Martinez said of
the audition. "They were
looking for laid back folks
who just wanted to have a
good time.
"A friend of mine, who is
also in the movie, and I joked
that they had all these amaz-
ing professional dancers from
out in L.A. and they put me
and him from Nashville up
there."
Once Martinez got the part
and showed up on set,
though, things quit being
quite so routine. Her scene
took three days one day of
rehearsal and two 10-hour
days of filming last July -
and all of them were a blast.
"It was really great,"
Martinez said. "We were


treated like celebrities.
Everyone on set was nice.
Miley Cyrus is a very talent-
ed kid. She was also very
humble and kind.
"They gave the dancers our
own trailer and we got to eat
in what I called the star's
tents, and that's where I met a
lot of the cast. I was sur-
prised at how kind and
endearing the cast and crew
were. I expected them to be
aloof, but they weren't. It
was nice meeting all those
. people who are big stars and
they are so down to earth. It
felt like we were in a big hoe-
down."
As thrilling as it was to see
her face on the screen during
the movie, Martinez was
even happier to see her name
at the end of the film.
"The best part was having
my name in the credits," she
said. "Even if you didn't see
me, that's proof."
One person who said he
won't be seeing Martinez on
the big screen is her older
brother. Despite being proud
of his sister, Shane Martinez
said he told her he'd wait to
see the movie on DVD.
"I'm a single guy, and
there's no way I'm walking
up and asking for one ticket
to. a Hannah Montana
movie," he said.

Uinda Crowder, Director of The Children's Museum of the Highlands, talks about putting
the finishing touches, on her new exhibit on Thursday before opening it to the public on
Friday.

Fire truck a hit at Children's Museum


Continued from page 1A
make children feel like they
are real firefighters.
It looks new and replaces
a 15-year-old golf cart that
was made into a fire truck
by the Sebring Firemen Inc.
A.member of the muse-
um's board was hesitant to
let the old exhibit go due to
its popularity, but Crowder
assured her this was an
upgrade.
"It's a real one," she said.
"This thing is in good
shape."
The truck and a few other
exhibits were put up for
silent auction earlier this
year because the city-owned
Ocala museum was moving
to another location.
The Children's Museum
has purchased exhibits like
"Water Works" from the
Ocala museum in the past.
While there are "no direc-
tions; no help" to put togeth-
er such complex exhibits,


Crowder said, she can't beat
the price.
"Water Works" originally
sold,for $40,000. The
Children's Museum pur-
chased it for $5,000.
When Crowder heard the
Ocala museum was holding
an auction, she went to see
the exhibits, and loved the
fire truck.
She decided to put a bid
on it and "find out how to
pay for it if we won."
The Children's Museum
placed a $2,000 bid on the
fire truck even thought the
minimum suggested bid was
$5,000.
Although they told
Crowder they would tell her
if she won fairly quickly it
was a while before she found
out.
"I kind of put it out of my
mind," she said. "I thought I
didn't get it, life goes on.
It's not the first time I've
been told 'no.'"
. Then a few weeks later


she got a call asking her if
she wanted to pick up three
other exhibits that didn't
receive bids when she came
to get her truck.
"She said she thought I
won it and said she would
call me back," Crowder said.
"Then she called me back
and said 't's official,
you've won it.'"
With the help of Bobby
Baker of Baker Septic,
whose crew drove up to
Ocala to hoist the 1,900-
pound exhibit onto a truck
for transport, the exhibit
opened Friday.
/ "You should have heard.
the kids in here screaming
today," Crowder said. "A
couple of them actually
screamed, turned on the
lights, jumped out to see
them and jumped back in."
The other three exhibits
will be coming to the
Children's Museum at a later
date.


State involved in Chinese drywall issue


Continued from page 1A
gas is heavier than air, so it
settles near the floor where
children and pets are. I have
had spells of dizziness and
breathing problems, and we
did not know why at first,"
Mary Willis said.
Companies that produced
some of the wallboard said,
they are looking into the
complaints, but downplayed
the possibility of health risks.
I Kokol said the department
is looking for a lab to con-
duct the tests and the agency
hoped to have equipment
installed in a few homes with
the drywall, and some with-
out, in several weeks.
Meanwhile, Democratic
state Sen. Dave Aronberg on
Friday called on Gov. Charlie
Crist to create a statewide
task force to investigate the
problems. "The longer we
wait, the worse the situation
will be-," Aronberg said.
Crist's office said the state


is already entrenched in a
major investigation led by
Florida's Surgeon general and
also is working with the fed-
eral government, which is
also investigating.
Crist and Gov. Bobby
Jiridal in Louisiana, where
the drywall turned up in some
homes rebuilt after Hurricane
Katrina, have asked for assis-
tance with chemical testing
from the Environmental
Protection Agency and the


Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention.
Legislation also has been
introduced in the U.S. House
and Senate, calling for a tem-
porary ban on the Chinese-
made imports until more is
known about their chemical
makeup.

Rosary pea can be deadly if eaten


Continued from page 1A
the past to make jewelry and rosaries -
which is how the plant got its common
name (it is also known as crab eyes).
Teething toddlers, chewing on seeds
worn as a necklace, have been known to be
poisoned.
Originating in India, but introduced to
this country as an ornamental, the rosary
pea is extremely hard to exterminate and
spreads rapidly. In one season a vine can
grow 20 feet, twining over other plants.
Dr. John Alleyne, county extension direc-
tor, said the seed pods pop open in an explo-
sive: way, scattering the seeds. "It's all over
(Florida)," he said. "If you just kill the top,
it will come right on back." .


A tropical plant, rosary pea is susceptible :
to frost. However, the roots are very hardy
and the vine quickly returns when the
weather warms. I
It is also resistant to fire for the same rea-
son. And because birds are not affected by ,
the toxin, they are a major source of its,,
spread.
Only by carefully removing all of the.
root, can a vine be eradicated. A systemic
herbicide like Round-Up has been found to
be effective, although again, it is essential
that the entire root is killed.
It is highly recommended that gardeners
and farmers remove these plants from their ,
yards and pastures.
For more information call the county
extension office at 402-6540.

Volunteers Ann Stansel (from left), JaNenne Miles and William Miles work to remove
exotic plants Saturday at Highlands Hammock State Park in Sebring.

Earth Day a work day at Hammock

"I never even knew they
were exotic," Webb said.
"I'm used to Brazilian pep-
per and melaleuca."
Another first-timer,
Doreen. Abbot, was off to
the side pulling up smaller
flax lilies with a mattock.
"This is my first time but
I love the park," she said. "I
thought this .was my time to
pitch in."


Abbott lives up the street
in Sebring for six months
out of the year and spends
the remainder of her time in
Connecticut.
That might keep her away
from the park, but she has
an annual pass for when
she's in town.
She was doing her part to
keep the park nice for sum-
mer guests,' as were year-
round Sebring residents,
Thomas Libby and Josh


Roe.
Libby, the manager of the -
Starbucks store in Sebring,
tried to organize some
workers from his store to -
come out to the event. Roe --)
came out and the two were.
working together to clear a _]
large patch. Q
"I figured April is volun- i,
teer month and Earth Day is:,r

way to tie them together," ,)
Libby said. -

Flat markers in granite,
marble, and bronze and
upright headstones in gran-

Volunteer drivers needed for DAV

transport vans to Bay Pines


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRI3G The Veterans Administration
Medical Center in Bay Pines issued the
local unit of the Disabled American
Veterans two transport vans to be driven by
volunteers to take veterans who are med-
ically unable to drive to their Bay Pines
appointments.
The vans are in need of volunteer drivers.
The van service leaves from the VA
Community Based Outpatient Veterans
Clinic near Highlands Boulevard in Sebring
at 5 a.m. Tuesday, returning before 5 p.m.
In order to serve as a driver, the Volunteer
Services of Bay Pines must certify the vol-
unteer. The prospective driver will undergo
a medical physical and a driving test at Bay
Pines at no post to the volunteer.
According to Art Dreyer, local coordina-


HunterDouglas


tor for the DAV Transport service, the more
volunteers available to drive the vans, the
fewer trips each driver will need to make
during the month. Dreyer would like to see
the transport service increase to several
days per week, and perhaps add a Fort
Myers Specialty Clinic route to the list.
This will only be possible with the addition
of more volunteers.
There is no expense to the driver. On the
days the volunteer drives, lunch is provided
by the VA. The DAV Transport Service has
a volunteer desk located at the Sebring VA
Community Based Outpatient Clinic, 471-
6227. The mission of the DAV transport
service is to serve those who have served.
- According to Dreyer, you do not have to be
a veteran to be a volunteer. Contact Dreyer
at 446-2720 to volunteer.

Sebring's 10-0 win over vis-

good pitching, strong
defense and timely hitting.
Not to mention a few
extra outs given by the wild-
at-times Wildcats.
"We've been swinging
the bats well, except for the
'other night with Lake
Placid," head coach Hoppy
Rewis said. "Our pitch
selection has been better."
But they couldn't turn
two first-inning errors into
any runs, though they
tacked one on in the second
on an Evan Lewis RBI sin-
gle to score Cody Hoffner
who had doubled.
Starting pitcher Josh,
Chavis, meanwhile, was
cruising through the Hardee
hitters. retiring the first two
batters of the game on two
pitches to set the tone.
"Josh thro%\s strikes and

AVON PARK The Red
Devils put one more in the
loss column Friday night
with a 4-1 loss to DeSoto,
and Avon Park's long-time
head coach Mort Jackson
announced that this is his last
year.
The Devils put the first run
on the board in the bottom of
the fourth' when Kyle
Jackson, on base with a sin-
gle and advanced to third by
a Buddy Duke Single, is sent
home on a DeSoto baulk.
DeSoto fought back adding
one for the tie in the top of
the fifth and three more runs
in the sixth, two from a Red
Devil error.
"Buddy D,uke pitched a
good game for us. He is good
for around 95-100 pitches
every game. I have to give
Arcadia credit, they knew
that Buddy was good for that
manyany and used that to their
advantage stretching out the

Panthers taking it down to the wire


By DAN HOEHNE
da, / lic-ul ,' newssun.com
The SFCC Panther base-
ball team's slide has it now
in a very precarious position
as the final twvo-game series
of the season started
Saturday at Hillsborough.
With South Florida
falling to Manatee, 7-4,
Friday, and Hillsborough
-taking a 4-0 loss to St.
Petersburg, the Panthers
remain two games behind
the Hawks for the final slot
in 'the Suncoast Conference
tournament.
Having taken two of three
against Hillsborough in
March, and having a better
overall record, SFCC would
seem to have control of the
main tie-breakers.
But making sure they get
to the point of being in a tie
is the primary focus, mean-
ing both games are must-
wins.
The Panthers made more
of a game of it Friday
against the Lancers than in
Wednesday's 15-3 loss,
thanks mainly to' the pitch-
ing of Adam Simmons.
The Sebring grad went six

and two-thirds, striking out
four and giving up four
earned runs.
Unfortunately, two other
unearned runs had come in
and Simmons was knocked
out of the game when he
took a line-drive back up the
middle off his pitching arm.
"Adam's day-to-day at
this point," head coach Rick
Hitt said. "We'pitched pretty
well all night against a very


good team. But down the
stretch we're not hitting.
We're averaging three runs
a game in seven of our last
eight and we went in order
in five of the nine innings
here. That's pretty tough in
a league full of offensive-
oriented teams."
But hopefully some of the
early-season slugging that
the team showed it was
capable of can be rediscov-


'We need to be

ready to play.'

RICK HITT
SFCC baseball coach
ered in time to stretch its'
season a little longer.
"We need to be ready to
play."

This was after the Streaks

Two more came around in
the fourth with Williams
beating out an infield hit,

got away.

Cody Higgins came on to

Sebring wrapped it up with
three in the bottom of the

Lewis knocked in his third
run of the game, McKenna
his second and Josh Acevedo
got into the ribbie column
with a single to finish it.
"We've been struggling all


year with our line-up, trying
to figure out who goes

nice when the bottom hits
well, like Riley's had' two
hits in each of his last three

For Mother s
Day, help
mom get
organized
With Mother's Day just
around the comer, would-
n't you like to show your
appreciation in a way
that's more meaningful
than buying your mom a
box of chocolates or a
bunch of flowers?
Here's a thought: Offer
to spend a few hours
helping to sort through
your mom's financial,
legal and medical paper-
work so she and you -
know where she stands
and can take appropriate
actions, if necessary.
A few key areas to
explore might include:
Retirement income
sources. Gather the fol-
lowing documents so
she'll have a better idea
of what income will be
available throughout .
retirement: '
If still working. your
mom should receive an
annual statement from
Social Security showing:
estimated benefits at vary-
ing retirement ages.
(You'll also need your
dad's statement to deter-
mine any potential .
spousal or survivor bene-
fits for Which she might
- be eligible.) For ques-
tions, call 1-800-772-
1213 or visit
www.socialsecurity.gov.
Annual statements
from any pension plans
for which she's eligible,
showing updated benefit
estimates. This might also
Include potential spousal
death benefits if your
father has a pension..
IRA, 401(k) or other
retirement savings plan
statements.
Statements for bank-
ing products such as
checking, savings and
money market accounts,
CDs, etc.
Company stock and'
bond certificates and
statements for other '
investment accounts.
Outstanding debts. On
the other side of the "
income equatioin compile
monthly statements and
outstanding balances
owed for things like:
Home mortgage or
other property loans
Home equity loan or
line of credit
Car loan or lease:
Credit cards
Outstanding medical
bills
Personal loans
Life and death docu- ,
ments. Your mom may
have many important doc-
uments that instruct how
she'd like her affairs han-
dled, both while she's liv-
ing and after death. Look
for:
Insurance policies
for medical, homeowner
or renter, auto, life, dis-
ability and long-term
care.
Durable power of
attorney and health care
proxy specifying who will
make her financial and
medical decisions if she's
incapacitated. Also, a liv-
ing will tells doctors
which medical treatments
and life-support proce-
dures she does or doesn't
want performed.

Special to the News-Sun
At one time or another
everyone has probably
entertained the fantasy of
quitting the daily grind and
starting a own business.
Therefore it should surprise
no one that every year more
than half-a-million people
choose to indulge their
entrepreneurial instincts
and start their own. busi-
nesses.
According to the Small
Business Administration,
there are more than 25 mil-
lion small businesses in the
United States, and the most
recent data indicates that 53
percent of small businesses
are home-based.
Once a budding entrepre-
neur has done the due dili-
gence, filed the appropriate
paperwork, and secured a
business' license, the real
work begins. That's when
many wonder what they've
gotten themselves into.
The "deer-in-the-head-
lights" expression is famil-
iar to franchisees of The
UPS Store and Mail Boxes
Etc. As small-business
owners themselves, they
can relate.
Because they've been
there, they can use personal
experiences to help their
own small-business cus-
tomers, many of whom are
just setting up shop.
Franchisees recommend


obtaining a business ,
address by signing up for *
mailbox services At The.,
UPS Store or Mail Boxes.
Etc.
Unlike a P.O. Box, small-
business owners have an
actual street address fori,
their business, which con--?
veys a more professional,
touch, and if they're run-
ning a business out of their ,1
home, they 'don't have to
give out their home-;i
address. Additionally, TheE:
UPS Store and Mail Boxes,.
Etc. can receive packages,,,
for the mailbox holder from ;
any carrier. !
Another important lesson .
learned is that time is,.j
money. It has been invalu-:;
able for small-business cus-:,
tomers to have a one-stopl3
shop for everything front
shipping and document,
services to packaging and
office supplies.
Many of these customers
also open a house account
which helps them keep-
track of their business
expenses. Many of the
small-business customers
think of the store team as
their personal staff. e,
The staff gets to know ,
them by name and try to,
anticipate their needs and-,
they don't have to put the,.
staff on their payroll.

Dr. FuelGood offers tips to get back to basics at the pump


ARA Content
For most drivers, filling up
at the pump is an automatic
routine. But considering that
cars are typically one of our
largest investments, it's
important to remember the
way we take care of them can
mean the difference between
trouble-free driving and cost-
ly repairs.
'Dr. FuelGood is Sam
Memmolo, an ASE certified
auto technician and automo-
'tive expert for Shell, who has
the following advice on the
best care for your car:
A big part of engine main-
tenance is making sure you
select the right type of gaso-
life for your vehicle. Not
only is it essential to use the
recommended octane (regu-
lar, midgrade or premium
gasoline), but it's also impor-
tant to make sure your fuel
has enough cleaning agents
to ,protect your engine. Let's
get back to the basics to help
y6u better understand what
you're putting into your car.

Octane
'-You probably associate


octane with the number you
see at the pumps (the higher
the number the more premi-
um the fuel), but the techni-
cal explanation for octane is
the measure of the fuel's abil-
ity to resist "engine knock."
If you use a lower octane rat-
ing in an engine designed to
use higher octane fuel,
"engine knocking" might
occur, causing the car to
shudder and lose perform-
ance. Most modern electronic
engine management systems
can sense this knocking and
make adjustments to prevent
serious engine damage, but
downgrading to a lower
octane can mean reduced per-
formance and lower fuel
economy.
Since not every car is the
same, different vehicles
require different octane gaso-
line. The vehicle manufactur-
er's recommendation for the
appropriate octane level is
listed in your owner's manu-
al. Some vehicles may even
have the octane requirement
noted on the fuel gauge or the
fuel filler cap. If your vehi-
cle's engine is designed to
run on regular grade unlead-


ed gasoline, that's all it
should require. However,
using octane above the rec-
ommended level will not
harm the engine. If you are
experiencing engine knock-
ing in an older car that rec-
ommends low octane, using a
higher octane grade may help
correct the problem (howev-
er, it's also recommended to
have your car serviced). If
you have a performance or
luxury vehicle that requires a
higher octane level, I recom-
mend you use the rating spec-
ified in order to achieve opti-
mal engine performance.

Cleaning agents
The enemy of engine per-
formance and efficiency is
engine "gunk," or harmful
carbon deposits. The gunky
build-up is the result of vari-
ous chemical processes that
occur during engine opera-
tion, creating a build-up of
residue on intake valves and
fuel injectors. This gunk acts
like a sponge, absorbing and
trapping gasoline which can
result in decreased engine
performance.


Some of the world's top
automakers Audi, BMW,
GM, Honda, Toyota and
Volkswagen recognize
that current Environmental
Protection Agency minimum
detergent requirements do
not go far enough to prevent
engine gunk and ensure opti-
mal engine performance. To
try to raise the bar on fuel
quality, these auto manufac-
turers designated the volun-
tary TOP TIER Detergent
Gasoline Standards to help
drivers avoid lower quality
gasolines.
Choosing a gasoline for
your vehicle is like choosing
a meal for your body -
healthy choices can make a
difference. Fortunately, pre-
venting engine gunk is easy.
Shell recently introduced
TOP TIER-certified Nitrogen
Enriched Gasolines, contain-
ing a unique, patented clean-
ing system designed to seek
and destroy engine gunk left
by lower quality gasolines.
The new Nitrogen Enriched
formula helps protect and
clean critical engine parts in
both conventional and mod-
ern engines.


No matter what octane
level is required for your
vehicle, I recommend you
always use a high-quality
gasoline that meets TOP
TIER standards. Industry
research confirms that a
clean engine can result in
better fuel efficiency,
reduced emissions and over-
all optimal engine perform-
ance.

The bottom line
While most engines will
work regardless of the fuel
grade or quality, it's impor-
tant to understand that using


a higher quality gasoline can
be a simple step to help main-
tain your engine and its vital
components. In today's tough
economy, American drivers
are concerned about protect-
ing the health of their vehi-
cles. Not all gasolines are the
same the differences in
product quality are real. To
keep overall costs down,
there is no substitute for pre-
ventive maintenance.

self-employed, or work in
professions involving pay-
m'ent in the form of cash and
tips, such as a waitress or self-
emhployed construction work-
er. In addition, those with
higher incomes also face a far
greater chance of being audit-
eq. In both circumstances, tax
returns with a large number of
deductions may be flagged for
ai4 audit.
If you're in a high-risk cate-
gory, it's essential to under-
stpnd tax laws and regulations
td ensure that you are reduc-
irf your risks by filing cor-
rdctly. Here are some tips
offered by FindLaw.com:
Tax planning is a year-
round chore. While it's still
efrly in the year, start now to
wprk with your accountant to
create a plan that 'involves
taking full advantage of all
ta*c deductions for which you
niy be eligible and carefully
monitoring the payment of
y ur income taxes throughout
tle year.
Start keeping good
rdpords. Create a filing system
irs your office or at home that
is! dedicated to saving docu-
nrrents such as tax statements,
'sales receipts, contributions,
etc. Document peaks and
valleys. Large increases or
drops, in your income or
deductions from one year to
tlhe next will draw raised eye-
btows at the IRS. Make sure
tlat you can clearly document
stich increases or drops.
* Use receipts. If you're in
a line of business where cus-
tconers often pay with cash or
personal checks, issue
reeipts with the name and
address of your business. This
wll create a paper trail for
beth you and your customers.
Always file your taxes.
KIep in mind, if you were laid
oA and received a severance
package, or if you had to dip
it~o your 401k or an IRA to
r(ake ends meet, you may
nied to pay taxes on that
iEcome. If yo"re currently
unemployed and are con-
cdrned about your ability to
p4y your taxes, call the IRS
Taxpayer Assistance Center at
(800) 829-1040 to seek imme-
diate help, or go to
www.irs.gov.
S* Hire a trustworthy, expe-
rienced accountant. Contact
friends and family members
tcC obtain referrals for an
adcountant with whom you
can work with all year round.
LUok for an, accountant who
has had experience with tax
audits.
Neatness counts. Most
tax returns are scanned or
processed by computer. If
your tax return is sloppy or
difficult to read, it will be
pulled for inspection. Use tax
software to prepare your tax
return or file electronically.


Don't throw away your
tax returns. Always keep the
last seven years of tax returns
in a safe location should you
be audited.
File on time. To avoid a
big surprise on April 15, as in
having to pay more taxes than
you anticipated, assemble
your tax records as quickly as
possible after the new year to
give yourself as much time as


possible to prepare your taxes
and to understand your tax
burden. If you will receive a
refund, file as quickly as pos-
sible to receive it: if you owe
taxes, don't file until April 15.
Know your rights.
Browse IRS Publication 1,
explaining the Taxpayer's Bill
of Rights, to clearly under-
stand what your rights are as a
taxpayer.

There are several important points to
keep in mind with all these documents:
Review them regularly and make
updates when situations change. Make sure
that designated beneficiaries for her will,
life insurance and retirement plans accurate-

Highlands Soil and Water Conservation


District will celebrate a 'working' Earth Day R..


It was a time when the
environment was in trouble.
Cities were covered in smog
and rivers were catching fire
because of the amount of
pollution they contained. It
seemed as though not much
was being done about it until
some concerned folks decid-
ed to take action.
Through cooperative
efforts of the United States
government, grassroots envi-
ronmental organizations and
citizens of the country, Earth
Day was born. On April 22,
1970, about 20 million
Americans celebrated the
first Earth Day. What started
as a day of national environ-
mental recognition has
evolved into a world-wide
campaign to protect our
global environment.
One of the main players in
getting Earth Day started
was Senator Gaylord Nelson.
He came up with the idea '
and took steps to move for-,
ward and put his idea'into
action. He stated, "For sev-


eral years, it had
been troubling me
that the state of our
environment was
simply a non-issue
in the politics of the
country. Finally, in
November 1962, an
idea occurred to me
that was, I thought,
a virtual cinch to
put the environment
into the political
'limelight' once and
for all. Earth Day

worked because of the spon-
taneous response at the
,grassroots level. We had nei-
ther the time nor resources
to organize 20 million
demonstrators and the thou-
sands of schools and local
communities that participat-
ed. That was the remarkable
thing about Earth Day. It
organized itself."
Since that infamous day,
Earth Day is, celebrated
annually on April 22, More
than 500 million people in
164 countries participate in


earth Day festivities.
This year the
Highlands Soil and
Water Conservation
District will be cele-
brating Earth Day at
the Lake Jackson
Shoreline
Restoration Project
site. On April 22,
the agencies and
organizations that
financed the project
will get together and
finish it up as a


team. Approximately 1,000
stems of cord grass have
been purchased and they
need to be planted in the
Lake Jackson Shoreline
Restoration area.
Here's where you come
in! This year Earth Day falls
in the same week as National
Volunteer Week. So in an
effort to help Mother Earth,
finalize the Lake Jackson
project, and celebrate our
volunteers, it is our vision
that staff, governmental
agencies and volunteers such


as yourself will all come
together and get the plants in
the ground. With your help
we can all join together and
install all the cord grass in
the ground and work toward
a common goal while cele-
brating our beautiful planet.
Can you think of a better
way to celebrate the earth
than to plant vegetation
which will provide shelter
and habitat for wildlife? You
can be a part of restoring the
shoreline of Lake Jackson.
It won't be your typical
Earth Day celebration with
balloons, food and activities.
But you can truly do some-
thing real to help our planet.
If you want to help out and
be part of making Highlands
County beautiful and
healthy, then show up at the
project site arouAd 8:30 or 9
a.m. on April 22nd. Bring
post hole diggers, garden
shovels or any other digging
tool you have around the
house. We have some work
gloves, so don't worry about

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You have

chase, Pisces. Just don't stray too far off

Men must be brought out of their shells


Question: You've often said that
boys and men are usually not natural
communicators. Boy, does that describe
the "men" in my life! What-can I do to
keep everyone talking to one another?
SDr. Dobson: Every family needs at
least one highly communicative person
ini 'the home, and it looks like you are
tlhe one. Many boys are inclined to bot-
tle up whatever frustration they are car-
rying inside. Unless you take the initia-
tiye to pull them out, some of them
nfay withdraw within themselves and
stay there emotionally.'I urge you to do
whatever is required to get into your
s6n's world. Keep talking and explor-
iig and teaching. Communication is the
goal. Everything depends on it.
'In 1990 Saddam Hussein and his
Iraqi army invaded the tiny, oil-rich
country of Kuwait and subjected its
people to terrible brutality. Their troops
were poised to attack Saudi Arabia and
thereby control half the world's oil sup-
ply. U.S. President George H.W. Bush
demanded repeatedly that Hussein
withdraw his forces, but he stubbornly
refused. Thus, on Jan. 17 of the follow-
ing year, Operation Desert Storm was
launched. Several hundred thousand
allied troops attacked the Iraqi army
from land, sea and air. What do you
think was the first objective of the bat-


tle?
You might expect
-. it to have been
S.- s Saddam's tanks, or
his planes or his
frontline soldiers.
Instead, the allies
destroyed the Iraqis'
Focus On communication net-
The Family work. Stealth
bombers smashed it
Dr. James with. smart bombs
Dobson and other weapons.
In so doing, our forces interfered with
the ability of the Iraqi generals to talk
to each other. They had no way to coor-
dinate their effort or direct the move-
ments of their army. The war ended a
few weeks later.
What happenedin Desert Storm has
direct relevance for families. When the
communicative link between members
breaks down, they become disorganized
and distant from each other. If hus-
bands and wives stop talking to each
other or if parents and children grow
silent, they slip into misunderstanding
and resentment. Steel-reinforced barri-
ers are erected, and anger prevails. For
many families, this is the beginning of
the end.
Let me urge you mothers to talk reg-
ularly to your sons (and, of course, to


every other member of the family). It is
a skill that can be taught. Work hard at
keeping the lines of communication
open and clear. Explore what your chil-
dren and your spouse are thinking and
feeling. Target your boys, especially,
because they may be concealing a caul-
dron of emotion. When you sense a
closed spirit developing, don't let
another day go by without bringing
hidden.feelings out in the open. It's the
first principle of healthy family life.

Question: Are there times when
good, loving parents don't like their
own kids very much?
Dr. Dobson: Yes, just as there are
times in a good marriage when hus-
bands and wives don't like each other
for a while. What you should do in
both situations is hang tough. Look for
ways to make the relationship better,
but never give up your commitment to
one another. That is especially true dur-
ing the teen years, when the person we
see will be very different in a few
years. Wait patiently for him or her to
grow up. You'll be glad you did.

Dr Dobson is founder and Chairman
Emeritus of the nonprofit organization Focus
on the Family, Colorado Springs, Colo.

Water quality
By 1970, Lake Erie was so pol-
luted it was declared "dead." Rivers
were dumping grounds for chemical
waste and sewage. The Rhine River
became known as "Europe's
sewer,'" and in 1969, Cle\eland's
Cuyahoga River polluted with,
oil and industrial waste burst
into flames. Today, water treatment
plants keep sewage from flow ing
directly into rivers. Still, water pol-
lution worldwide has increased
since the 1970s as more people and
industries have strained the system.
And the problem goes beyond qual-
ity: Water scarcityv affects one-third
of the total world population.
By the numbers
The average American's daily
water use (for all purposes,
including energy and indus-
try): -
1.500 gallons (about three times
the world average)
Number of people without
access to safe drinking water:
1.1 billion
. Amount of carbon dioxide
(caused by human activity)
absorbed by the ocean:
50 percent
O0ean conditions
Of the 100 million tons of plas-
tic produced each year. about 10
percent ends up in the ocean. A
United Nations study estimates
about 46,000 pieces of plastic litter
are floating in every square mile of
ocean water. That includes the
Great Pacific Garbage Patch. a
floating mass of trash mostly
plastic that is estimated to be
twice the size of Texas. For the past
50 years, it's been collecting in two
Pacific gyres, vast areas of sw irling
water. There's no plan for getting
rid of the plastic. and scientists say
cleanup would be a task that's
already too large. The National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration is study ing the
dimensions and makeup of the
floating mess.


About 10 percent of discarded
plastic ends up In the ocean.
And much of that plastic has
been swept Into a giant
swirling vortex in the Pacific.


Land use
On the first Earth Day, concern
abput land use wasn't a priority.
Throughout the 1960s; a desire to-
preserve green spaces was classified
as "conservation," with concerned
citizens focused on preserving parks
and recreational areas. But in the
past few decades, we've recognized
that it's crucial to pay attention to
land use, from agriculture to urban
landscapes. We've begun to see
land use as an en% ironmental issue
and to consider the impact of
agriculture. population density and
development on ellands, grass-
lands, forests and other ecosystems.
By the numbers
The world's predicted popula-
tion by 2050:
9.2 billion
Portion of the world's popula-
tion that lives in the United
States:
5 percent
Portion of land area in the
United States used for agricul-
ture:
About 40 percent
A; s Development
As Ut.S. population grows and
household population decreases,
more and more houses are covering.
the land. Land is converted for
development at twice.the rate of ,
population growth. Most of that is
for "sprawl" development roads,
.shpps and houses in suburban and
.rural areas.
Forests
A swath of forest the size of
Panama is lost every year, and the
loss of forests produces about 20
percent of all manmade carbon
dioxide emissions. Though defor-
estation of the Amazon rainforest is
declining, one-fifth of that forest
has been already lost. Scientists pre-
dict that it'll keep disappearing,
thanks to illegal logging and the
practice of clearing the land to
make room for cattle farms.
Agriculture
As scientists investigate ways to
reduce our dependence on fossil
fuels, the importance of biofuels
continues to grow. While biofuels
burn cleaner and emit fewer toxins,
they demand a lot of crops. In
Brazil, Malaysia, Indonesia and the
United States, forests and grass-
lands are being rapidly converted to
farms to grow soybeans and 'sugar-
cane, crops for making biofuels.
But getting rid of the carbon-
absorbing grass and trees, some sci-
entists say, actually increases green-
house gases canceling out the
benefit of using biofuels.


Air quality
Air quality was a visible problem
by 1970. Smog had been obscuring
the skylines of cities such as Detroit
and Los Angeles for decades. But
dirt\ air wasn't just an American
problem. In August 1970. smog sent
more than 8.000 Tokyo residents to
the hospital in five days. In Venice,
dirty air caused damage to the
ancient Greek bronze horses in St.
Mark's Square. A strengthened
Clean Air Act was one of the
changes the first Earth Day brought
about. Air quality has improved
nationwide. but a number of cities
still don't meet government stan-
dards.
By the numbers
Energy-related carbon emis-
sions worldwide:
29 billion metric tons
Trees needed to absorb the
carbon dioxide emitted from
one U.S. car each year: 240
Asians who die each year from
the effects of air pollution:
1.5 million .
People worldwide who live in
countries with pollution levels
above the EPA's National
Ambient Air Quality Standards:
103 million
Approximate number of coal
plants built every week in
China: 2
Legislation
The Clean Air Act first enact-
ed in 1963 but amended and
strengthened in 1970 set stan-
Sdards for national air quality and
auto emissions standards. But those
standards proved too high for the
auto industry to meet, so deadlines
%were extended. In 1990 the Clean
Air Act was updated again, with
tougher emissions standards. In
2008. the EPA announced it would
tighten smog standards, predicting
that 345 counties in the United
States wouldn't pass the test.
Fact
China has overtaken the United
States as the biggest emitter of
greenhouse gases. Beijing. the site
of the 2008 Summer Games, is so
polluted that athletes were con-
cerned for their health.

The top three U.S. states lead-
ing the nation in annual car-
bon dioxide emissions in 2004:

Texas 1652.5
California 389.9
Pennsylvania 282.5

Waste, landfills
By 1970, America's consumer
culture was expanding, and
Americans were discarding things at
alarming levels: 7 million cars, 100
million tires, 20 million tons of
paper and 48 billion cans every
year. Philadelphia and San
Francisco expected to run out of
landfill space before 1972. Today,
Americans recycle about five times
more than in 1970. Landfills are.
fewer and better-managed, though
also much larger. Still, we manage
to keep only one-third of our Wvaste
out of the trash heap. And in an age'
full of electronic gadgets, "e-waste"
is, a growing problem.
By the numbers
Average waste produced by
Americans each day:
1970: 3.3 pounds per person
2006: 4.6 pounds per person
Average waste recycled in the
United States:
1970:.6.6 percent
2006: 32.5 percent

Average amount of paper prod-
ucts recycled in the U.S. today:
56 percent
Average amount of "e-waste"
discarded in the U.S.:
1.9 million to 2.2 million tons

Average amount not recycled,
landing permanently in land-
fills:
About 82 percent
Hazardous-waste sites in the
United States: 1,301
In Texas: 45
In New Jersey, which tops the
list: 117
In North Dakota: 0

Recycling
The first recycling center was
* opened in New York City at the end
of the 19th century. Recycling re-
emerged in the 1960s, but despite
greater awareness, most local gov-
ernments didn't start recycling pro-
grams until the late 1980s and early
'90s. Now there are more than
8,000 curbside recycling programs
in the United States even so,
only about 32 percent of solid waste
is diverted from landfills.

Hazardous wasze
In 1980, Congress approved the
Superfund, a temporary program
designed to clean up hazardous
waste. It was amended in 1986 and
continues today. Thanks to the pro-
gram, today about 70 percent of the
cost of hazardous-site cleanup is
paid by the responsible parties.


Energy, transport
That first Earth Day. pollution
was a bigger concern than energy.
U.S. oil production peaked that
year. and efficiency in building
and in transportation wasn't a
priority.
Today. Americans use more
energy than ever before. But we're
also learning new. cleaner ways to
generate it. Renewable energy is
the smallest portion of energy
sources onl\ 6 percent but
it's also the fastest-growing sector. .
We're finding more responsible
wa\ s to consume energy, too. We
ha\e more fuel-efficient cars.
homes and appliances.
By the numbers
