SEBRING During
Thursday's school board meet-'
ing an emergency item was
placed on the agenda that
moves the entire International
'Baccalaureate program to
Sebring High School.
Its unanimous approval by
board members consolidated
the program, effectively killing
the freshman and sophomore
"pre-IB" programs at Lake


Placid and Avon Park high
schools.
The suggestion came after a
Tuesday meeting of the
Advanced Academics commit-
tee, when members and parents
decided to recommend making
SHS the full-time home of the
pre-IB program to the board.,
Pre-IB classes, which are
designed to prepare students
for the IB program, are taught
during freshman arid soph6o-
more years, while e the IB pro-


gram is a curriculum designed
for juniors and seniors.
Until this week, pre-IB
classes were supposed' to be
offered at both Avon Park and
Lake Placid schools, with stu-
dents waivering into SHS dur-
ing their junior years.
"Really we were looking at
the economics; trying not to
impact the overall budget,"
said Diane Juve, a strong sup-

SEBRING After some
good old fashion haggling,
the Sebring City Council and
the developers for the Tdwne

made progress on getting the
planned renovations moving.
Council seemed more than
willing Tuesday to make sev-
eral concessions about.

agreement that % as originally
presented a fe%\ Nears ago in
order to convert the retail
bo\es to residence.-
ContractQdBruce Johnson,
representing Charles
Gusmano and the Town
Center Redevelopment.
LLLP, the owners of the
property; asked for clairifica-
tion on several items in the
proposed changes, including
a cap on the potential billing
the city can do in respect to
work on the project.
"We need that clarified a
bit. Right no% it is open-
ended, and we are on a budg-
et with his project." Johnson
said.
Council. voted to cap the
amount the city can charge
for services like attorney
fees, planning and design at
no more than $5,000.
Council also gave ground
on requiring more parking lot
lights, but held firm on mak-
ing sure that the landscaping
would get done by requiring
a bond for 105 percent of the
$85,000 estimate.
The city would retain the
bond, in this case $89,250; to
do landscaping work even if
the project faltered.
Additionally, at the urging
of Councilman Scott Stanley,
council set deadlines out to
Aug. 1 for most of the
required permits and other
ordinance approvals.

Doing it right, even if

no one is watching


Human beings
have it tough.
While the gift
of consciousness
opens up the uni-
verse and this
wonderful planet
to us, it comes
with the cost of
having a con- T
science.
At least on St
Earth, we are Chrim
alone in knowing T7
right from wrong.
The pull between the
two is a lifelong battle for
most of us, aggravated as
it is by self-interest, fear
and the need to be lived.
It isn't always easy to
live one's ideals, or stand
up to peer pressure, or to
always know what the
right action should be.
If it is difficult for those
of us upon whom only our
families, friends and
-employers rely, imagine
how much more difficult it
is for those into whose
hands we place our own
and our loved ones' safety
- how much more diffi-
cult, in other words, to
behave well with strangers,
while faced with life. and
death decisions.
This is the reality faced
every day by the men and
women who serve as law
enforcement or corrections
officers, and the important
reason I was pleased to
attend a training session at
the Avon Park Correctional
Institution presented by its
own Chapter 3 of the
Florida Council on Crime
and Delinquency Friday.
It is comforting, in the
first place, to know the
issues of professional val-
ues and personal integrity
are considered important
enough by the APCI lead-
ership to dedicate a train-
ing session to them, then
even more encouraging to
find the time spent worth-
while and thought provok-
ing,
Most of that had to do
with the gentleman leading
the discussion.
James Sewell, who holds
a doctorate and has written
textbooks on criminal jus-
tice, has 32 years of expe-
rience in law enforcement
and corrections rising
from-a beat on the street to
assistant commissioner for
the Florida Department of


.ff
uff
topher
vfley


Law Enforcement,
before retiring in
2005. He now
teaches at his
alma mater,
Florida State
University.
A teacher to his
toes, he didn't
hide behind the
podium. Instead
he moved out into
the audience,
challenging its
members to think


and ask questions. ,
First he gave a warning.
"We've got a crisis in
this state whether the gov-
ernor or Legislature say so
or not," he said. Cuts to
the Department of
Children and Families and
education mean only one
thing, "We'll have more
people in the system."
The more people making
bad choices, means the
more law enforcement and
corrections officers have to
make good decisions. This
is especially true because
public order relies so much
on mutual respect.
Obviously, police offi-
cers who are blatantly 'dis-
honest or hypocritical and
corrections officers known
to be unfair or brutal
undermine our society; the
point Sewell drove home is
that mediocrity is just as
dangerous.
"The threat to integrity,"
he said, "is willing to set-
tle for the status quo, the
willingness to look the
other way."
Public safety organiza-
tions have to be honest
from the top down as well
as the bottom up. Everyone
has to work at living their
agency's core values.
The message to the pub-
lic has to be straightfor-
ward, consistent and posi-
tive, Sewell said. Agencies
have to show by actions
that, "This is the kind of
behavior you can expect."
He gave as an example
the Los Angeles Police
Department's response to
the beating of Rodney
King. Bad enough was the
beating itself, but when the
L.A. police chief said he
would have to look into
the incident after being
presented with the smok-
ing gun of a citizen's video

Gardening with the good


I Editor's note: The News-
Sun is running an occasion-
al series identifying inva-
sive plants that are a nui-
sance or dangerous. This
story begins a second occa-
sional series which will
highlight native Florida
plants and other plants suit-
able for Highlands County.
In addition to describing
plant material, the series
will include helpful tips and
ways of saving water.

SEBRING .Wide
rolling lawns, said Dee Dee
Jacobson, an- urban'"horti-
cultural agent with .the
Highlands Count3 exten-
sion office, were invented
in the Victorian era.as a way
of.showing off wealth.
The further the house sat
back from the road, and the
more sweeping the sod. the
richer the homeowner was
thought to be. .
Largely because of
lawns, however, in Florida
half of all water.usage is
spent on landscaping.
With limited after and a
burgeoning population, we
Floridians are irrigating
ourselves into serious trou-
ble. ,
But it doesn't hate to be
so.
In fact, experts like
Jacobson say !we can not
only save water, we can cre-
ate far more interesting, and
useful yards doing it.
The key is to think new,
which means reaching back


to when the trees, shrubs,
vines and flowers that grew
here did so by nature's
design.
People are creatures of
habit. With at least 80 per-
cent of Florida's population
coming from somewhere
else rfany inappropriate
plants have been imported
into the state in an effort to
recreate what people had
back home.
But lilacs will never grow
in Florida, nor will Aspen
trees nor rhododendrons.
Make a break with the old
world and embrace the new,
Jacobson says. The results
may not only surprise, but
get a long time gardener
excited all over again.
Landscape doesn't have to
be the same to be beautiful,
and Florida flora provide a
wide and varied pallet from
which to chose.


Before going into
specifics, however, here a
few rules and hints to create
a garden that fits each indi-
vidual's lifestyle;
Most important, keep in
mind a garden is a living
thing. It doesn't remain stat-
ic and it requires care.
But gardefters have a
choice when it comes to the
amount of work .they
expend on their plants. Just'
as there are dogs % ho need a
lot of exercise and dogs that
do not, so there are plants
that require a great deal of
attention and those that get
by with a minimum of care:
So, planning is the first
step.
And when it comes to
planning the mantra is loca-
tion, location, location. The
key is to get the right plant

Critical talks _

continue on

state budget
By BILL KACZOR
Associated Press .
TALLAHASSEE House:
and Senate leaders failed to2-:
break a deadlock Friday over: ,-
key preliminary issues thatC-
must be resolved before for-:
mal budget negotiations can-:
begin just a week away from-:
the scheduled close of the:J
regular legislative session.
Senate President Jeff (
Atwater and House Speaker-
Larry Cretul told their- ;
respective chambers to go:
home for the weekend after a
seventh day of behind-the-:i
scenes talks without an -*
agreement. .4'
"We've certainly narrowed:
matters," said Atwater, R- .
North Palm Beach. "But -
there are some gaps thai
remain."
Atwater said he still held-
out hope for an on-time fin-;
ish a week from Friday, but-.-
acknowledged that would be,-
tough. He declined to discussl7
details of his talks with-':
Cretul, R-Ocala.
To adjourn on schedule,-,
joint conference committees-:
would have only two days'-:
when lawmakers return..
Monday to complete formal:.
budget negotiations that usu- I'
ally take a week or more,
including weekend meetings.:-
The budget must be set--
tied, printed and distributed.^
to all members and top state
officials by midnight
Tuesday.
That's because the Florida.
Constitution requires a 72-
hour cooling off period to -.J
permit public review of the. 4:
compromise budget plan: ?'
before a final vote.
If lawmakers cannot meet
that deadline, their options !
are to extend the session or
meet in special session.
"The Mal I thing, we can
talk about it, but I don't think
it's going to happen," said
Sen. Jim King, a Jacksonville
SRepublican and former"
Senate president.
"I hope I'm wrong." .s
Cretu.l Atwater and other,.*
top leaders have been unable
to agree. -on how. much anqC
what kind: of new taxes ani1f
fees 'the budget should
include and how much.
money should be apportioned.
'to each major spending area-
such as education and health- 4
and human services. '
While the leaders talked i-
private, both chambers tenctd
ed to other business and two
groups filled the Capitol
rotunda to 'hold budget

and workers from a small

TODAY'S EDITORIAL

You wanted the


job, so why don't


you want to do it?


M" ark your
calendars.
lTuesday
night at 5 p.m. the
Avon Park city
council is meeting.
It used to be a city council
'meeting wasn't a red letter
day event, but since Mayor
Sharon Schuler, Deputy
Mayor Brenda Gray and
Council Member Jqe Wright
voted to meet only once a
month an Avon Park resident
has a better chance of sight-
ing Sasquatch than seeing the
city council at work.
The last time the council
convened was the 23rd of
March, and here we are in
late April with the budget
season beginning, facing dif-
ficult choices due to dimin-
ished funding, while in the
meantime needed expendi-
tures keep rising.
SIf ever there was a time for'
leadership and a sense of
direction, this is that time.
SNow the county commis-
sion, in the voice of President
BArbara Stewart, is consider-


ing following in Avon Park's
footsteps by cutting out one
meeting a month.
Everyone who backs this
idea of meeting less often
claims that the move will
save money in difficult eco-
nomic times. Yet no numbers
have ever been released to
prove that as a fact.
More to the point, how
much money is worth saving
at the cost of open govern-
ment $500? $1,000?
$2,500? If indeed it is even
that much. At the most we're
talking pennies out of multi-
million dollar budgets.
No one ever said democra-
cy came easy or cheap.
No one ever said being an
elected official was a walk in
the park.
But if our elected officials
- who were never drafted
after all, but made free will
decisions to run for office,
even spending money, time

The U.S. should be above torture:


If you've tuned in to the -
news lately, you know that
there have been four memos
released detailing techniques
used under by the CIA the
Bush Administration to get
information from terrorists
that they captured. Said
techniques included water-
,t" boarding, stress positions,
and confiing the prisoner in
a small room with an insect.
The Obama
Administration released
these memos after declaring
Dus that the United States -would
no longer use torture. Those
!ry- two decisions have caused a
firestorm of opinion to rage
me in this country. Andibelieve
me, "firestorm" doesn't
im- begin to cover it.
S Some have called for the
not prosecution of the Bush
Administration lawyers who
ies gave the CIA the green light
to use torture. Some' wel-
rn- come the decision, saying
the United States should not
be in the business of torture.
SOthers say we're now less
safe because we've denied
those charged with keeping
us safe an important tool.
Some say torture works.
Others don't.
SOne thing that makes the
debate even more rancorous
is that there is no 100 per-
cent agreement on what is or
isn't torture. While most
people would call water-
boarding forcing someone
to undergo a simulated
drowning torture, other
techniques don't lend them-
selves 'to such clarity. Is
slapping someone torture? Is
putting them in a small room

with an insect torture?
I really want an answer to
that last one. Here's why.
When I was in high school,
some kids decided it would
be a hilarious joke to tape a
live palmetto bug to the bot-
tom of my desk. (For those.
who don't know, palmetto'
bugs are roaches on steroids.
They are huge, and they can
even fly).
I want to believe that
these fellow students had no
idea how much I hated and
feared palmetto bugs. That
my feelings were so pro-
found I couldn't even step
on one with a thick shoe or
pick up a dead one with a
roll of paper towels. I am
now 51 and I still cringe if I
see one, though I can now
manage to pick up a dead
one as long as I ha\e a roll
of paper towels.
I know they wanted a
reaction that's the whole
point of doing stupid things
like this. They apparently-
didn't expect that reaction to
be hysterics that landed me(
in the guidance counselor's-
office. The counselor
assured me those involved.
didn't mean to upset me so-
badly and were worried
about me.
As far as I know, they
weren't punished. I have a
vague memory of apolhgie's
offered, but I can't even
remember their names.
Was that torture? It was


without question cruel.
Painful. It had such an effect
on me I still remember the
incident to this day and I
feel myself becoming sonie-
what agitated while recount-
ing it here.
Let's say we manage to,
get a working definition of
"torture." We draw a clean
bright line between what is
acceptable pressure and what
is torture. The next question:
should we do it?
This will probably get
some of my friends mad at
me, but I'm not a.huge fan
of torture..I'm not sure that's
what we should be doing,:
Of course, the standard'
question asked when one;
states this is "what if you?-
loved one was in danger ahd
someone knew how you
could stop it and Wvasn't tdlk-
ing?" Short answer. I donit
know. .
My biggest worry regard-
ing torture is simply this. We
-pride ourselves on being ,bet-
ter than the terrorists. Wd'
have higher morals, value
life more. If we descend 16
their tactics, use their meth-
ods, how are we better? If
we become what our enemy
is, how is that winning? "'
I can't imagine torturing
someone any more than I'-
could have hurt those
teenagers who.hurt me over
30 years ago. It's not who'I
am. I'm not certain it's who
we as a nation should be,
either. ,

EXPRESSIONS OF FREE SPEECH

'Our Constitution was not intended to be used by ... any
group to foist its personal religious beliefs on the rest of us.'

KATHERINE HEPBURN
actress, c. 1940


With no taxes, how will
services be funded?,
Editor:
:No income tax, no.sales tax, no
property taxes. We have had
enough of the government taking
our money, if I earn a dollar I want
to keep a dollar.
That's the latest battle cry of the
Republicans.
Actually it's the same old red
herring designed to get the man-in-
the-street Republicans back in the
chicken coop. They used those
same scare tactics when the Bush.
administration wanted to start his
war in Iraq, remember "Saddam is
getting uranium from Africa" or
the mushroomm cloud over New
York." All lies designed to cow the
people into their perverted way of
thinking.
Why was there no action taken
by the past Republican administra-
tion when $2 billion a month was
disappearing in Iraq?Money that
was paid out 'in duffle bags full of
hundred dollarbills, why was there


io hew and cry over the waste and
corruption in Iraq? Because most
of that money went to Republican-
owned companies, like Dick
Chenev's Haliburton.
I have no doubt that all those
Republicans who attended rally's
denouncing taxes are those who
want a, policeman on every corner
and the fire department in two min-
utes if there's a fire or someone
needs emergency treatment. They
want.their children to attend
schools with small classes and top
grade teachers. They want roads
and bridges in first class condition,
they want a strong military.
But they don't want to pay for
any of the above.
So please tell me if there are no
taxes, where is the money to pay
for maintaining, or improving, our
standard of living supposed to
come from?
I can hardly wait to read those
letters.
On another note: It's unfortunate
that Russ Baker didn't publish his
book "Family of Secrets" in early


TODAY'S LETTERS
2000, we might have been spared
the past eight years of misery. If
people knew George W. Bush's
true history he would never have
been anywhere near the White
House. But, sadly, Republicans
only get their distorted information
from Fox News and Rush
Limbaugh.

Dinner was true to
Lincoln's character
Editor:
"To test a man's character give
him power," Abraham Lincoln.
The above-referenced quote was
a resonating theme throughout the
Lincoln Day Dinner 2009 We
ttf People presentation. From the
opening song of our national
anthem, to the closing song "God
Bless America," character was
defined through the evening in
speech, prayer and song. I am hon-
ored to be associated with my
friends in the Republican Party of
Highlands County and my commu-


nity, who made this night possible.
I learned again tonight how for-
tunate we are to have Tom Rooney
as our Congressman. His commit-
ment, courage and character are the
core strengths we need to continue
to develop within our party and
throughout our government.
My sincere appreciation to the
corporate sponsors who made pos-
sible the opportunity for others to
hear Congressman Rooney's mes-
sage. The impact of our sponsors
gave to the element of the "hosted"
TEA parties that were celebrated at
each table. The message being sim-
ulated across our nation by this
\simple act transcends the very
essence of the "revolutionary spir-
it" which formed our country. The
transparency of our elected repre-
sentation must never reflect the
complacency of those being repre-
sented.
Again, I extend a warm humbled
thank you to all who joined me and
the Republican Party of Highlands
County in celebrating the character,
commitment and courage of


Abraham Lincoln.

Volunteer drivers needed

for DAV transport vans


By MNARY .MARGARET
STATK
Special to the News-Sun
The VA Medical Center in
Bay Pines issued the local
unit of the Disabled
American Veterans. two
transport-vans to be driven
by volunteers to take veter-
ans who are medically
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 in the afternoon
before 5 p.m.
In order to serve as a driv-
er, the Volunteer Services of
Bay Pines must certify the
volunteer. The prospective
driver will undergo a med-
ical physical and a driving
test at BayPines at no cost
to the volunteer..
According to Art Dreyer,
local coordinator 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
Specially Clinic routeto the
list. This will only be possi-
ble with the addition of:
more volunteers. :
There is no expense to the
driver. On the days the voli
unteer drives, lunch is pro-
vided by the VA.
The DAV Transport
Service has a volunteer desk
located at the Sebring VA
Community Based
Outpatient Clinic, 863-471-
6227, ext. 6697. The mis-
sion 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 volun-
teer. Contact Dreyer at 446-
2720 to volunteer.

SContinued from page 2A
tape, essentially blowing
off the event, the public
exploded in rage.
What did the chief's
choice say to the people of
the city, especially those of
dolor, Sewell asked.
I As he spoke I couldn't
.elp but contrast that deci-
sion to the choice made by
Avon Park Police Chief
Matthew Doughney recent-
ty.
SWhen Doughney became
aware of civilian com-
plaints against-a particular
police officer, charging
extortion, he acted on the
police department's core
values and didn't sweep
anything under the rug.
'Instead he arranged a
test of the officer's integri-
ty, which the officer failed
on film, then allowed him
d'chance to speak the truth,
which the officer did not.-
This was done quickly
and cleanly. The officer is
no longer with the depart-
nent and a\\aits adjudica-
tion.
Doughney's actions have
lone much to regain the
.rust the police department
.ad lost o\ er the years,


especially since he has had
to make other similar deci-
sions, and has done so con-
sistently. .
Values shape actions;
action i in' turn' create: repu-,
Sation,:,which. itiits turn' .
creates respect.
Leadership must be by
example and rest on good
management. Individual
officers must have the
strength of self-discipline,
but be able to trust their
superiors as much as the
private citizen needs to
able to trust them. Success
can only from a higher
standard, not a double
standard, Sewell said. "In
the end it comes down to -
doing the right thing for
the right reason at the right
time."
Having witnessed the
conscious struggle of good
men and women coming to
terms with the gray as well
as the black and white on a
j"hot Friday morning; facing
the difficult instead of giv-
ing in to the easy. it
,: became clear these were
, tough human beings.

News-Sun Streaks settle for second

Lady Streaks settle for second


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
With the adversity of the
season they have had, taking
second in the District 10-4A
standings and tournament is
nothing to sneeze at.
And yet head coach Joe
Sinness knows there was the
chance for more after
Friday's 6-1 loss to top-seed-
ed Braden River in Palmetto.
"It was a 1-1 game into the
third and then we had a men-
tal breakdown," he said.
"Just that one bad inning
where we threw the ball
around a few times and they
scored four runs. That really
took the wind out of our
sails."
The other. problem, oddly,
was that the Lady Pirate
pitcher Trisha Zuknick was-
n't at her best.
"She had thrown six
innings the night before
against Palmetto," Sinness
said. "We were expecting her
best and she came out kind of
flat. We weren't able to
adjust to that and just didn't
do much offensively."
Though the loss came after
a Thursday niight shutout of
DeSoto in what Sinness had
described as "one of our best
all-around games all year."
Kayla Clemens pitched a
complete game in the 7-0 col-
lar of the Lady Bulldogs and
the offense was clicking.
"Everyone in the line-ip
got on one way or another,
the defense was solid,"
Sinness had said afterward.
"It's a good time to be hitting
on all cylinders."
That feeling, it turned out,
was relati\el. short-lived,
but showed the capability of
the team.
It especially\ shows the;

Final. Sebring fell short, however, taking a 6-1 loss to
Braden River to take second place.


depth of the program when
one considers the losses the
team has had to fade through-
out the season and not' as
far as their record.
Even before the season
began, slated starting shortstop
Amanda Grimaldo was lost to
a knee injury during soccer.
And within a matter of
days in the midst of the sea-
son, senior slugger Sammie
Lower and staff ace Nikki
Helms both werelost for the
year with knee injuries of
their own.
Three top-line players who
filled key roles on the team
that had to be replaced a
virtual doomsday scenario


for just about any team.
And yet the Lady Streaks
persevered with Clemens and
Haley Pack stepping forward
on the mound, the likes of
Wendy Negrin, Hannah
Shoop, Priscilla Adams, Dino
Lower, Carrie Dudek, Jamie
Hershkowitz taking on the
challenge and junior varsity
call-ups Camiel White,
Michelle Bash and Jamie
Fairlcoth lending their talents
to earn a 15-7 record and keep
Sebring a formidable foe.
And the 'llI try to muster
up the mettle Tuesday night,
taking on the District 9-4A
champion Lady Highlanders

Dragons over Devils

It's neeer too late t
dream as Lake Placid's Brad
Sta)ton learned after hi
three-run home run helpe<
lead the Green Dragons to
4-2 win over Avon
Park at Charles R. Lak
Head Field Thursday
night.
"I think that's the Av

games."
The Red Devils had their
3 chances, loading the bases a
d number of times, but failing
s to open up the floodgates to
d any degree.
a The wind did the Devils
e Pla no favors either, as a
titanic Kyle Jackson
blast to center fell
Swell short of where
on Park the initial arc seemed
it would carry it -
: resulting in a nearly
12 400-foot single.
Buddy Duke then
r followed with a line-drive,
, two RBI double to nearly
e the same spot to account for
e Avon Park's output for the
t


night.
It Was a host of Dragon
pitchers that held the narrow
lead, with C.W. Vought
going the first three and
one-third innings 'before
Pike Cloninger went the
next two.
Lefty ;Dayid 'Sijamperi
came in to record two outs
and Dylan Webber-Callahan
finished it up. '
Both the Devils. and
Dragons had Friday night
away games, to conclude
' their regular seasons before
each look to their respective
district tournaments ,on
Tuesday.


Highlands has eight




headed to State


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehine@'newssun corn
Eight Highlands County
student athletes have reached
the ultimate plateau in high
school, track and field,
advancing to the Class 2A
State Finals.
Among the masses of the
31-school Region 2-2A meet
Thursday at Lake Highland
Prep. t\o Green Dragons and
six Red Devils had their tick-
ets punched for the next level
of competition, tobe held at
Showalter Field in Winter
Park Saturday, May 2.
Avon Park's Ch'quen
Wilmont qualified in two
events as the junior took
.fourth in the 100-meter dash'
and joined forces with
Ja'mee Hawthorne, Bianca
Godfrey and Angelique
Ligon four a fourth-place fin-
ish in the 4X 100-meter relax.


"This is my second year in
track and I made it to region-
als last year, so this feels real
good," Wilmont said. "I hope
to get second in the 100. I
know I can move up, but that
girl from Lake Wales is
tough."
That girl would be Lady
Highlander Octavious
Freeman who bested the field
by more than a half-second.
Wilmont also just missed
out in the 200-meter dash,
-taIkling fifth, .24 seconds out
of qualifying, and missed by
about one and-a-half feet
from moving on in the long
jump,- with perhaps the
lightened workload at the
State meet helping her times
improve.

strong year in the hurdles,

meter event in 16.12 to earn
her spot at state.
"I've been to regionals all
four years, but in the other
three, I always fell in the
finals," Shrewsbury said.
"I'd get nervous when I saw
someone ahead of me and'I
would start running their race
instead of mine. I just
remembered to run my race,
keep under control and keep
the blinders on."
The time and finish were
all the more remarkable
given that Shrewsbury was
battling injuries in both her
foot and hamnftring, though
they did hamper her chance

Streaks sunk on Senior Night


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne @ newssun .com
SEBRING They say
turnabout is fair play and the
Jaguars of Port St. Lucie
made up for past Sebring dis-
cretion's with a 10-3 Pt
win Thursday night.
"We've beaten them
a few times on their 1
senior night," Sebring Seb
head coach Hoppy
Rewis said. "So I
guess they got us
back. They're a very
strong program that you
don't really want to finish the
season against, but that's how
it goes."
It was a pitchers duel early
on with Cody Higgins match-


ing Kyle Hurley.
A run snuck in on a
dropped third strike in the top
of the second, but the Streaks
struck back with a Kevin

"We're a little banged up
with our pitching," Rewis
said. "We only wanted to
have Cody go three, but had
to have himrngo five and he


ran out of gas a little there at

would answer right back in

ing the bases with nobody

Invasion of the Dioscorea bulbifera in Highlands County


If I were to
tell you that
Highlands
County had a
'problem with
Dioscorea bulb-
ifera, you' proba-
bly would not
know what I'm
talking about. But
News From what if I told you
The there is a living
Watershed organism that is
invading our
Corine Burgess environment and
if we don't do something about it,
we're going to see some drastic
changes in our natural areas, yards
and parks?
Dioscorea bulbifera is the scien-
tific name for air potato. Although it
is an attractive plant, it has caused
severe damage to many natural
areas and it costs taxpayers millions
of dollars a year to control.
Exotic plants and animals are
species that have come from other
areas and do not belong in fhe area
they are.now in. Invasive species
are the subset of introduced species
that have a negative impact on the
ecosystem or cause economic dam-
age.
Invasives cause an estimated
S$137 billion per year in losses in


the United States alone (Pimental et
al 2000). If you stood 137 billion $1
bills end to end it would go from
earth to the moon 54 times! In addi-
tion, the effects of invasives on
native species are staggering of
the 958 species listed under the
Endangered Species Act as threat-
ened or endangered, approximately
400 are at risk due to invasive
species (Wilcove et al 1998).
Control of invasive 'species is
expensive and at times very diffi-
cult; therefore the most effective
and least expensive way to control
invasions is to prevent them.
Everyday decisions made by ordi-
nary citizens are critical in the fight
against these pests.
Air potato, a native of Asia and
sub-Saharan Africa, was first intro-
duced to Florida in 1905. It is a
member of the yam family and it is
speculated that it was brought into
the Americas with slave ships from
Africa. Since those early days, the
air potato has spread throughout
Florida and it is also found in
Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas,
Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
It is considered one of the most
serious exotic plant invaders in the
state. Therefore, it is illegal to prop-
agate, transport or possess. Due to
its ability to displace native species

The air potato, shown here with a
bulbil, is one of the more invasive
plant species in Florida.

and disrupt natural processes such
as fire and water flow, air potato
has been'listed as one of Florida's
most invasive plant species since
1993, and was placed on the Florida
Noxious Weed List in 1999.
Air potato invades a variety of
natural areas in Florida including
pinelands and hammocks. It rapidly
grows to the tops of tree canopies
and forms a vine mat which weighs
down and shades native vegetation.
Once air potato invades an area, it
is difficult to eliminate due to the
prolific production of aerial tubers.
Air potato can grow extremely
quickly, roughly 8 inches per day.
New plants develop from bulbils
(little potato like objects) that form
on the plant and these bulbils serve


as a means of dispersal. The aerial
stems of air potato die back in the .
winter, but resprouting occurs from
bulbils and underground tubers. The
smallest bulbils make control of air
potato difficult due to their ability
to sprout at a very small stage.
Air potato is easy to recognize. It
is a twining herbaceous vine with
stems growing as long as 60 feet in
length. The vines are round and
slightly angled in cross section.
They produce a bulb (tuber) that
looks similar to a potato. It is gen-
erally a tan color and can be small
or large. The leaf is green, heart
shaped, basally lobed and it quickly
tapers to a point at the leaf tip. You
have most likely seen this plant in
your neighborhoods or in some of
the parks here in the county.
The foliage of air potato can be
treated with herbicide; however
every "potato" that hits the ground
will most likely produce a new
plant. Therefore, getting these bul-
bils off the ground is a good start to
eliminating this invader of our natu-
Sral world.
The Florida Exotic Pest Plant
Council has awarded Highlands Soil
and Water Conservation District.
(HSWCD) a grant to help reduce
the amount of this problematic
:plant. In the near future, staff from.


HSWCD will be offering free semi-
nars to educate the citizens of
Highlands County about air potato
as well as other problem species.
These seminars will offer informa-
tion on ways to recognize the plant,
methods of eradication, instructions
on treatment and general tips on
why these invasive exotic plants
and animals are so bad for our natu-
ral world.
In January, with the funds from
the Florida Exotic Pest Plant
Council grant, HSWCD will hold an
"Air Potato Exchange Day." This
will be a time when you can bring
in a bag of air potato bulbils and
receive a free native plant.
If you don't have any air potatoes
in your neighborhood, don't worry.
We've thought of that. You will be
able to obtain a pass from
Highlands Hammock State Park and
instructions on where to find the
plant in their boundaries.
You can make a difference and
help fight this invasive alien! Get
involved, be part of the solution.
Tame your exotic side: become
native.

Resources Specialist with the

Rest and relaxation is what you need, Scorpio


Aries (March 21-April 20) An
important assignment comes your way,
Aries. Enlist as much help as possible so
you get the job done promptly and to the
best of your abilities.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) Taurus,
that business venture you've been think-
ing about has the makings of a success.
Still, this may not be the week to make
any financial investments toward that
end.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) Single
Gemini will find a new mate this week.
Gemini in a relationship will strengthen
his or her relationship even more. Good
days for love are Tuesday and Saturday.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Cancer,
now is the time to start living healthier.
Schedule an appointment with your doc-
tor for a physical and make some posi-
tive changes to your lifestyle.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23)`- Leo, there's
not much you can touch this week that
won't work in your favor. It's easy to get
a big head. But you won't let the ego get
that far. A reality check comes on
Thursday.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Virgo,


HoRoscoPE


there have been a lot of changes in your
life. But you adapt very well and can
roll with the punches. Others around
you, however, are more easily shaken.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Libra, you
find yourself in a predicament when two
friends ask you take sides. There's noth-
ing you can do than to bow out graceful-
ly from this other "competition" of
sorts.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Rest and
relaxation is what you need, Scorpio.
You have been pushing yourself much
too hard lately and the cracks are start-
ing to show in your veneer.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
-Sagittarius, make the most of time
spent with family members, because
soon you will be preoccupied by work
commitments. You'll get a break on
Friday.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -


Capricorn, some people are quick to put
the blame on you. But you know better
than to let false accusations throw you.
Rally some supporters and you'll pull
through.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) -
Aquarius, you feel secure in your
finances, and you're considering a frivo-
lous purchase just to make yourself
smile. Will you be smiling when the bill
comes in?
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Throw a
party, take a trip, go to a concert. There
are so many options for fun at your dis-
posal. Pick one this week, Pisces.

Gray catbird is often heard and not seen


Welcome to our roost! Our
subject bird today is often
heard and not seen. It is the
secretive catbird, (Dumetella
carolinensis). It's official
name is "gray catbird" in
order to distinguish it from
the black catbird found in
southern Mexico.
Catbirds are more often
heard than seen, uttering
their distinctive catlike
meow. The scolding catlike
meow is uttered whenever
the bird is offended or dis-'
b -turbed. The usual song is
sweet, full and rich, the
phrasing faultless and varied
and few birds can equal it in
harmony. From time to time,
it imitates other birds,
though the repertoire is not
as varied as that of the
mockingbird.
Although the species does
feed upon some small fruits,
it is considered a useful bird,
devouring great numbers of
grasshoppers, crickets, cater-
pillars, ants and spiders. This
diet is supplemented by
seeds of dogwood, elderber-
ries, greenbrier, bayberries,
pokeberries, sassafras and
holly. The photo shows the
bird on a pine cone filled
with peanut butter.
When the catbird is seen
in the shady areas of shrubs
and thickets, it appears all-
black, but when glimpsed in
the open sunlight the feath-
ers appear dark slate-gray.
Its head is covered with a
cap of black and the tail has
russet undertail coverts. Its
body, including the long tail,
is similar to that of its rela-
tive, the mockingbird. Adults
are from 8.25 to 9 inches in
length. Our subject bird
reaches Florida in
September, wintering on
moist bottom lands, on the
borders of creeks and
swamps and sometimes in
city parks and gardens. Most
members of the family return
to their northern homes in
late April; a few remain to
\ breed in northern and central
Florida.
The gray catbird will build
a bulky nest made of
grapevine bark, coarse twigs,
dry leaves and grasses and
lined with fine rootlets. This
is placed 5-10 feet above the
ground in a dense thicket,
among vines or in a thick-
foliaged tree. The three to -
five eggs deposited are
robin-egg blue. If the nest is
approached, the female
Makes a great fuss, flitting
back and forth with open
wings and screaming'and
mewing in rage. If a human
touches the nest, she will
peck the hand viciously. The
Chippewa Indians called the
gray catbird "Bird That- Cries
With Grief" due to its raspy
call.
We have been receiving
calls regarding the sightings
of male and female painted
buntings. The Brunners from
Buttonwood Bay reported

BUSINESS/PERSONAL FINANCE


Consider hidden costs

before buying a new car


These are interesting times
for potential car buyers.
Because so many people
have become wary of the fal-
tering economy and are
avoiding auto showrooms,
Stervous car manufacturers
Shave been slashing prices,
issuing rebates and offering
extremely competitive
financing terms at least to
people with sound credit to
lure in business.
But for many folks, the
temptation to take advantage
of those great offers is tem-
pered by fears that govern-
ment bailouts for automakers
won't necessarily ensure
their long-term solvency.
That uncertainty, in turn,
casts doubt on the viability

Warranties.
If you are thinking about
trading in your old car for a
hewer model, keep these
financial factors in mind:
Depreciation. New cars
typically lose 20 percent or
more in value once driven
off the lot. Thus, on a'
$25,000 loan with 10 percent
down, you would automati-
cally owe $22,500 for a car
that might only be worth
$20,000. If you had to sell it
suddenly, could you come up.
with an extra $2,500 to pay
off the loan?
Insurance. Insuring a
new car is often much more
expensive than with older
vehicles. Before purchasing.
ask your carrier-for estimates
on a few different models for
comparison's sake. And ask
for a quote on gap coverage,
Which will pay the difference
between the car's actual cash
value (factoring in.deprecia-
tion) and your outstanding
loan or lease balance, should
the car be stolen or totaled
in an accident.
Taxes and fees. ,When
calculating how much car
can you afford, don't forget
about sales tax and fees for
title, registration and license
plates that could add any-
where from a few hundred to
several thousand dollars to
the purchase price. Ask the

Vehicles for current fee

credit. you'll likely pay

lower loan limits if you're
eligible for a loan at all.

Trade-ins vs. separate
sale. You may prefer the
convenience of trading in
your old car with the dealer,
although you can probably
get more selling it on your
own. Just be sure to treat it
as a separate transaction
after you've settled oh a

Highlands Independent teaching children to save


Special to the News-Sun
Branch managers and offi-

Bank visited six Highlands
County schools Tuesday for
national Teach Children to
Save (TCTS) Day. Bank
employees taught students the
value of saving and helped
children explore a variety of
ways to use their money wise-
ly.
The program, which was a
week long, took 18 HIB
employees into 11 area
schools, reaching more than
3,000 students with the mes-
sage that saving money is cool
and smart.
Elementary schools
involved in the TCTS initia-
tive included Lake Country,


Lake Placid, Cracker Trail,
Memorial, Sun 'N Lake, Fred
. Wild, and Woodlawn, as well
as the Kindergarten Learning

ously the challenge of helping
young people in our commu-
nity grow into-responsible
