Meredith Lutz. director of infec-

The meeting was held "just to let


staff know what we normally do for

pretty\ good position."
As of Tuesda) morning 51 cases of
swine flu had been identified in the
United States: 28 at a pri ate high
school in New York City. 13 in-
California. six in Texas. two in
Kansas, one in Ohio and one in

Community,comes up big in funding for new SPD dog


AMVETS lead the way in drive

SEBRING Police Chief Tom
Dettman hopes this year's K-9
fundraising drive is the start of a tra-
dition.
If it is, he says that the AMVETS
Post 21 leadership will be a hard act
to follow. "It just made. all the differ-
ence in the world," he said.
Fea,-the department's current K-9,
is now 10 years old. After a decade of
faithful and accurate service, she has
earned her retirement.
In. 1999 the community raised over


$14,000 to buy Fea, far exceeding the
goal of $10,000. Now it faced a new
challenge in a far more expensive
economy.
In August of 2008, knowing that
Fea would soon be stepping down,
Dettman began to plan how to find a
replacement.
Fea was trained as a narcotics dog.
This time he hoped to find a multi-
purpose dog, one that could do that,
but also track indoors and outdoors,
bring down resisting suspects and
protect its handler as well.
These dogs have to be of high cal-


that raises more than $21,000


iber and require extensive training,
which means they cost thousands of
'dollars.
The prospect of raising the money
was daunting, especially because of
the difficult economic times.
But when the AMVETS' heard of
the need, they got in touch with
Dettman and said they wanted to the
organization that made it happen.
They sponsored a Poker Run in
January to kick off the drive, then fol-
lowed that with the Second Annual
Tom Berdelle Golf Scramble on April
4, with proceeds going entirely to the


K-9 fund.
The Tom Berdelle Golf Scramble
was conceived by his wife, Bonnie
Berdelle, in his memory after he died
unexpectedly two years ago. He was
a past post commander.
In the end, the AMVETS helped
raise, after expenses, $21.524, well
over the original goal of $15,000.
The AMVETS is one of the smaller
veteran's organizations in the county.
They count 161 members, and had

Average bill would go

By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK -
Struggling with deficit spend-
ing where the water and sewer
rates are concerned, the Avon
Park City Couhcil directed
staff on Monday to formulate
a new way to bill for those
services.
Presented with a utility rate
study prepared by Sterling L.
Carroll, -a professional engi-
neer with the Florida Rural
Water Association, council
was informed that both water
and.sewer rates would have to
increase significantly just to
cover the cost of providing
those services.

should be self sustaining and

that Avon ,
Park move off the flat 'rate
billing for sewer, matching
the billing with the water
usage, and to bill water start-
ing at the first 1,000 gallons
used, not at 3,000 gallons.
According to Carroll, those
using small mounts of water
would actually see their bill
decrease slightly, but those at
the top end of the usage Wvould
see an increase t9 balance the
rates out.'
'"If you are on fixed income
and are not using a lot of
water, the bill will go down,
and you may see an overall
decrease in water usage with
these newer rates," Carroll
said.
The average user in Avon
Park stays around the 6,000
gallon mark monthly, and
pays 'about $17.08 for water
and a flat rate of $24 for
sewer for a total billing of
$41.08.
Those outside city limits
pay 25 percent more, and
commercial rates tend to be
about 15 percent, according to
Carroll.
Carroll's suggestion was to

she could scrape up enough
from the already short budg-

'learns a lot at Florida Hospital


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING A group of students from
Sebring High School got an up-close look at
the Florida Hospital Women's and Children's
Center Monday during a field trip.
The child development class, taught' by
Detrice Smith, covers child birth, -delivery,
and nutrition for the mother and baby., Many
of the students are taking the class with
future jobs in mind.
"Some students have an interest in open-
ing up their own day care," Smith said.
Jessica Young enjoys the class. "It's edu-
cational, not only t6 know what to do but
job-wise," the sophomore said. "There's
more to it than yo.u think."
On the trip students were given a presen-
tation by.Jill Jernigan, registered nurse and
coordinator of Childbirth Education for
Florida Hospital Heartland, giving Smith's
students a chance to ask a.professional any


technical questions or to get more specific on
topics they might have.
The trip let sophomore Taylor Dixon rem-
inisce about the last time she was at the hos-
pital. "I watched my baby sister being born
right over there," she said. "It brought back a
lot of memories."
The class has also opened up her eyes.
,"There's a lot more to having a baby than
most people think," .she said.
Christine Douglass, clinical coordinator
for pediatrics, told a group: during a tour
"there are tons of jobs in nursing."
They are responsible for a variety of tasks
in many departments, from pediatrics to the
emergency room.

Parker

enters not

guilty plea

Former APPD
officer charged
with aggravated
child abuse
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING James
Parker III, 'who has been
accused of child abuse and
severely hurting his girl-
friend's 20-month-bold daugh-
ter on March 28, waived his
appearance at, his arraign-
ment Monday morning and
was represented by William
Fletcher.
Parker, 32, was an Avon
Park police officer at the time
of the incident.
A plea of not guilty was
issued in Parker's name.
His next court action is set
for July 7 at 8:30 a.m. when a
pre-trial conference should
occur. The -
trial is
expected to
take place
sometime in
August.
In the
meantime the
little girl, Parker
whose name
has not been released to pro-
tect her and her family's pri-
vacy, remains in critical con-
dition at All Children's
Hospital in Tampa.
She allegedly suffered
multiple skull fractures as the
result of having been violent-
ly shaken.
According to arrest
reports, Parker, 32, 'of
Sebring, called the child's
mother after i2:15 a.m.
March 29 to tell her the girl
was "not acting right." .
The mother, who works as
a nurse, began her shift at
about 6:30 p.m. March 28,
and Parker was at their home
watching the victim and sev-
eral other children, the report
stated.
After receiving the call,
the mom came home and saw
her daughter in Parker's arms
as he sat in a recliner in the
living room and the child had
"a bad color, was limp and
wasbreathing shallow."
The mother immediately
grabbed the girl and had
Parker drive them to HRMC,
the report stated.
While at the hospital,
investigators learned that
Parker did not have "a plausi-
ble explanation that was con-
sistent with the injuries of the
child."
Parker remains in jail with
a bond of $250,000.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Tough choices have to be honestly made
6*


eare relieved to hear that the general economy
shows small signs of relief. If we aren't yet gain-
ing ground, at least nationally, we are losing
ground more slowly.


We hesitate to celebrate, however, for
several important reasons just
because the trees are thinning in the
woods, and we see a little light, doesn't
mean we're safe from a falling branch,
or weakened trunk toppling over on us.
The ripples from the original collapse
continue to roll outward, and we have
'been warned that one wave is about to
hit us here.
Highlands County revenues will be
down over $9 million for the fiscal year
2009-2010 due to dropping property
"values and fewer taxes collected.
On top of the losses in the 2008-2009
"fiscal year this is more bad news. From
a government and services stand point
we face extremely tough times ahead.
Tough times .can only mean tough
decisions.*
We commend the big three in county
finance Tax Appraiser Raymond C.
McIntyre, Tax Collector Charles L.
:Bryan,- and county Budget Manager




'If any one amendme

pick the First. It ol


Bernis Gainer for stepping forward
and giving. the county commission and
the public the unvarnished truth in
enough time to wrestle honestly with
those decisions.
We will only survive this difficult
time intact if we remain as courageous
and unflinching.
As difficult as stemming the tide of
red ink, will be living with the result.
All of us, public servant and private cit-
izen, need to face the fact that sacrifices
will be involved, and.that's on all levels,
from our municipalities to Tallahassee.
Every staff member of every depart-
ment of every government in the county
must take the right path.
Every council, every commission,
every advisory board must be diligent in
overseeing those who submit budgets.'
At a time when families are canceling
cable television, combining car trips and'
shopping at thrift stores to save money,
it is essential those in power do not fund


pet projects, favor friends, or shortcut
the budget process.
Now is not the time to play the "Old
Boy" network, or go on about business
as usual.
More than ever we need to hold the
decision makers accountable for their
choices.
That does not mean being rude or
unjust. Raising voices or stooping to
personal insults is harmful and will only
delay progress..
Instead, we welcome creativity and a
sense of fair play. We honor those will-
ing to prioritize and pledge our support
to those who do so transparently.
We encourage as many public hear-
ings as it takes to get the job done. We
urge citizens do their part by attending
those meetings.
As individuals and a species, we seem
to learn our most important lessons dur-
ing times of challenge and stress.
If our elected leaders and their staffs
remain focused on the necessary, and we
support them in that mission, the day
may soon come when we can look back
with pride and.thrive in the future.

<1Sonni is an asset to Highlands
County
Editor:
In recent articles that I have read about how
wonderful l Dr. Raghuverra is ... Has anyone for-
gotten who started Heartland Pediatrics and'has
proven to be the most qualified pediatrician in
Highlands County for the last 27 years? i
Dr. Sonni provides healthcare to my grandchil-
,dren ranging from five months to 16 years of age.
I am very confident in the quality of care Dr.
Sonni provides 'and she is highly knowledgeable
in pediatric medicine.,
It really, saddens me that Dr. Sonni would be
referred to with such little respect and her contin-
Suous quality of care. would be questioned due to a
change in business practice.
If there was such a "clause" in the contract,
wouldn't he have read it before signing?
Dr. Sonni has provided wonderful patient care
to my grandchildren and, what,a blessing she has
been in Highlands.County.

Business owners didn't have right to
vote in Lake Placid sewer decision
Editor:
SI have been a reporter in the Dallas/Fort Worth
area for years and rarely have I seen such incom-
petence in researching the' facts about the Lake
Placid sewer hookup editorial in the News-Sun,
dated April 17.
How could this reporter have missed the most
critical piece of information regarding the fact
that business owners in Lake Placid are not
allowed to vote? This reporter harshly critizes the
business owners for "crying foul and not bother-
Sing to leave our homes 'and take a stand" by vot-
ing on the sewer issue. This reporter further states
'that, "you've got what.you deserve." Hello! We

as business 'owners are not allowed to vote on any
issues regarding anything in Lake Placid. Only if
you are a resident of the town may you have that
privledge. This reporter was so incompetent that
he missed this very crucial fact. His entire article
was based on his belief (incorrect that it is) that
business owners of Lake Placid have a right to
vote.
The News-Sun made a huge mistake in this
story and needs to write not only a front page cor-
rection, but an apology to our hard working, tax
paying, politically active Lake Placid business
owners. I am ashamed of the News-Sun. Next
time please do a better job of checking out the
facts.

Editor's note: The editorial simply stated a bad decision
was made by only a few voters and stresses the need for
everyone to have their voices heard through the voting
process.

Qualified, certified pediatrician
continues service
Editor:
After reading the letters of a few citizens, I felt
the need to respond. I understand the emotions,
which were expressed by some concerned parents.
The facts expressed in these letters are not the
absolute truth, however I am not here to discuss


that situation.
Started in 1982 in Sebring, as a single pediatri-
cian office, Heartland Pediatrics was a vision to
bring high quality providers (physicians, physi-
cian assistants end nurse practitioners) to all three
counties. Heartland Pediatrics goal was not for a
few fortunate children but the real needs of less
economically fortunate children to receive the
highest recommended care, in a small rural com-
munity. Heartland Pediatrics came up with the
idea of Saturday morning office for sick children
in 1983 to help working parents and school going
children to get the earliest care. Now they have
gone one step ahead to keep late evening hours on
a few days to help working parents for their chil-
dren's well check ups and shots.
As a citizen of Lake Placid community for nine
years and retired from the U.S. military service I
decided to work for this organization. I have
worked very closely with all the physicians of this
organization not only in Lake Placid but also in
Sebring and other places. I have.worked very
closely with the administration in making deci-
sions of the running of this office. In fact it is a
very well run organization. As a physician assis-
tant I can reassure the community you will not
only have a well qualified board certified pediatri-
cian but a very caring compassionate person to
care for the children of Lake Placid

A Closer
Look
Judy Barnhart

Cutting out

the heart?

Given the current econom-
ic situation of the country, it
should not seem surprising
that the local school system
is suffering financial stress.
This paper has carried sever-
al recent articles and letters
discussing the situation and
suggesting various possible
solutions.
One would certainly
assume (and hope) that the
school system's solutions
would not mirror those of
some of the large corpora-
tions with high-level CEO's
taking multi-million-dollar
"bonuses" while cutting jobs
for "lower-level" employees
or considering bankruptcy.
But wait! One of the pri-
mary suggestions coming
from the top administration
of the Highlands County
school system is to cut a
large number of teachers.
Have we forgotten why we
have a school system to
begin with? If anyone can
think of a valid reason for
having schools, other than
for the benefit of children, or
to educate our,future genera-
tions, I'd like to know what
it is. Surely, cutting teachers,
who are the backbone and
the heart of the education
system and who are the pri-
mary people working directly
I with the students, cannot be
a healthy solution for the
problem.
There used to be one-room
schools. They sometimes
existed with only a teacher.
Nothing else. There certainly
weren't paid school boards.
(They volunteered.) And as
various new positions were
added to the system, they
were there to assist and sup-
port the teachers (whose job,
again, was educating chil-.
dren.)
So what's happened?
We've put in phone systems
that cause the teachers to
have to answer calls so that
secretaries aren't "bogged
down" at the end of the day
(have you ever witnessed
what a teacher is going
through in a classroom full
of students at the end of a
day?); we have school board
members who are paid (for
their few meetings per
month) more than some of
the teachers who spend every
day with a classroom full of
students; we have adminis-
trators who suggest cutting
teachers.
I've heard several teachers
say they'd be willing to take'
a pay cut, if that had to be, in
order to keep from cutting
other teachers from their jobs
altogether. And in Highlands
County, teachers (who often
end up taking money from
their own pockets to buy
additional materials to sup-
port their classrooms) are
hurting even more than in
many other locations.
Finding a solution to the
budget problem, other than
cutting teachers (without
whom we couldn't have a
school system, and we
couldn't do the job of edu-
cating our future leaders)
seems to be of primary
importance. How much of a
cut would it take from all of
the rest of the people who
work in the school system
all of the people who are
supposed to be there to sup-
port the teachers and thereby
support the students who are
the real reason for the school
system to begin with?! Not
that even the highest level or
highest paid administrators


in the district office are in
any way paid salaries that
compare with those high-
paid corporate CEO's. They
aren't. But they are certainly
paid more than the teachers
who are the heart of the sys-
tem.

ident and a former employee of

District.

Swine flu numbers

Continued from page 1A
ment said travel warnings
for trips to Mexico would
remain in place as long as
swine flu is detected.
The Obama administra-
tion on Tuesday defended
its "passive surveillance"
policy to deal with the
threat, saying that it's
measured, cautious border
monitoring makes sense.
Homeland Security
Secretary Janet Napolitano
said Tuesday that more
draconian enforcement
steps are not yet necessary,
even as she acknowledged
that officials "anticipate
confirmed cases in more
states." She reiterated
President Barack Obama's
stance that people are justi-
fiably concerned but need
not be alarmed by it.
"We anticipate that there
will be confirmed eases in
more states as we go
through the coming days,"
Homeland Security
Secretary Janet Napolitano
said on NBC's "Today'"
show Tuesday.
The first outbreak was in
.Mexico on March 18 when
Mexican officials began
seeing cases of a flu-like
illness.
"There are no known
cases in Florida and the
'known cases appear to be
adequately isolated," Lutz
said. "The disease is mild
with no mortality in the
United States so far."
., This was also touched
on during the CDC press
conference.
"I wouldn't be overly
reassured by that," Besser
said.
The reason only mild
cases are appearing in the
U.S. was still a question
that has et to be
answered, he said.
Swine flu has killed
,more than 150 people in
Mexico.
SBesser said,specific
numbers weren't as impor-
tant as "what it tells us."
"What we learn from the
numbers is how disease
ma\ be spreading and
where it's not spreading,"
he said.
The World Health '
Organization upgraded to
Pandemic Phase 4 Monday.
In Phase 3, a virus has
caused sporadic cases or
small clusters of disease in
people, but has not resulted
in human-to-human trans-
mission sufficient to sus-
tain community-level out-
breaks. In Phase 4, there
are verified human-to-
human transmission able to
cause community-level
outbreaks.
Symptoms are similar to
the flu.
"The primary symptoms


to grow
that we hear about of
fever, cough, respiratory
symptoms are still ones
people need to look for,"
Besser said. "We do know
that there are individuals
who have had gastrointesti-
nal symptoms of diarrhea
and vomiting. And'so if
you have those symptoms
it doesn't rule out the fact
that this could be swine
flu."
Lutz said local residents
don't need to fear the
worst if they get the flu
soon. They could still
catch it from a regular
strain.
"We still have (seasonal)
flu activity going on in our
community; we are still
seeing cases of flu that are
popping up," she said.
During the question and
answer period, one mem-
ber of the hospital asked
Lutz why the flu seemed to
be deadly for younger peo-
ple, ages 25-45, who typi-
cally have stronger
immune systems.
"(During) the 1918 flu,
that is who got sick during
that pandemic," she said.
"Those are the people who
died initially. It's not
uncommon to see that with
a novel strain."
The 1918 Spanish flu
infected one third of the
world's population and had
a fatality rate of around 2.5
percent compared to less
than 0.1 percent in other
influenza pandemics.
The CDC estimated
between 50 and 100 mil-
lion people died from the
Spanish flu.'
While the Spanish flu
and swine flu seem to be
fatal to' younger, healthier
people, Lutz said it was
"too early to say" if the
similarities meant any-
thing.
"There is probably some
specific reasons for (the
disease affecting younger
people) ... but you have to
remember we only have 20
cases so far," she said.
This was before the total
domestic number reached
51, with 20 more bo6 s
from the same New York
school confirmed to have
the virus Monday.
Like avian flu, swine flu
comes from the animal
where it gets its name.
"This virus is from
swine (and). it does typical-
ly occur in people who are
having contact with pigs
that have the flu," Lutz
said.
Pork products are safe to
eat, because the disease is
not spread through the
food chain.

acknowledge the leading role Post 21 played in the recent
fund raising drive to provide a new multi-purpose dog to
'the police department.


Funds raised foi

ty project. Their enthusiasm
moved Dettman greatly.
"They answered a call to
arms and jumped in with
both feet. They put their
hearts and souls into this," he
said.
While the AMVETS 'vere
the spearhead, the communi-
ty followed suit once the
drive got underway.
Dettman told of being
approached at the post office
and in the street. He said
people would walk into the
station lobby asking how to
donate.
He found citizens handing
him checks for amounts from
$10 to $1,000. ,.
One group of young stu-
dents from the Liberty
School, after a school trip
tour of the police station, dug
into their pockets and donat-
ed $1.50.
The Rotary Club of
Highlands County donated
money' so the new dog would
have its own bullet-proof
vest.
Local businesses also
pitched in, either with cash


r Sebring PD K-9
donations or food and prizes
for the golf tournament and
poker run.
When Dettman ran an'ad
to thank all the contributors,
the list ran 150 names long.
Then he discovered to his
horror he had left a name out:
his mother's neighbor and
friend, Jean Moore, who had
made a contribution.
"This is a community
dog," Dettman said. "This
dog will belong to everyone,
all the wonderful people who
made this happen."
Now that the money has
been raised, Dettman faces
the pleasure of finding'just
the right dog. He is currently
talking to breeders, -and
doing research.
The department will have
to decide who the new dog's
handler will be.
Officer Bret Hinkle and
Fea are a team.
One thing has already been
decided. The new dog's name
will be J.R., given to honor
the memory of James R.
Moore, the only Sebring
'police officer to be killed in
the line of duty.

water at the children
because she wanted them to
leave her property.
The children boys

sewer on a base rate plus
usage depending on the
water used..
Average sewer rates
would go up to $34.80 per
month for a total bill of
$61.21, a hike of a little
more than $20 per month.
Those who had special
exceptions, such as filling a
pool, could have the sewer
rates capped if they notified
the utility department ahead
of time, and those with a
water leak could ask for
some relief as well.
Council directed city staff
and Carroll to return with a


plan that included at least a
42.5 percent hike as well as
a yearly cost-of-living
increase.
"We need to go to.a grad-
uated rate to make this fair.
Currently, those using less
water is making up the dif-
ference for those using more
water," said councilman Joe
Wright.

Renee Green asked that

"I need these new num-
bers within the next two

SEBRING POLICE DEPT. SAYS

"THANK You"!
As many of you may already know, the Sebring Police Department 2009 K-9 Donation Drive exceeded all
expectations! The "big thermometer", located in front of the police station, is full and overflowing. We topped
our $l.000 goal and received over $22,000 in donations. After paying all expenses, we cleared S21,524.15!!
That speaks volumes about the generosity and commitment this community stands for in our fight against
crime and drugs.
I am very proud to be a part of this community-based initiative. The long hours and hard work of our
dedicated group of volunteers has finally paid off. Our citizens answered the call for this police-community
partnership and responded in fine fashion. Our poker run and golf tournament were both a resounding
success and our corporate signature sponsors put us "over the top".
My only reservation is that I might have forgotten to thank somebody who deserves it. Together, our efforts
have paid off! We, as a community, can be proud of this outstanding accomplishment.
Please patronize our business partners who were behind this effort all the way. We also want to thank your .
families, friends and neighbors who made this all possible.
On behalf of the Sebring Police Department 2009 K-9 Volunteer Committee, members of the AmVets Post 21,
the Highlands County Veteran's Council, our corporate signature sponsors, the men and women of the
Sebring Police Department and the City of Sebring -PLEASE ACCEPT OUR HEARTFELT THANKS FOR YOUR
GENEROSITY AND COMMITMENT TO MAKE OUR COMMUNITY A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE, WORK AND
PLAY!
Sincerely,
Thomas M. Dettman

The win sets up the dis-

Sebrlng
Recreation Club


By Chapman Chambetl/n


SEBRING The club is
for the members and also of
the members.
Just looking in your new
directory and- noticed that
many of the ping-pong play-
ers are Sebring residents
year-round. Ping-pong play-
ers have you challenged
either Zumba or line dancers
to a match yet? These mem-
bers are also in great shape*
and should catch on quickly.
Line dancing is on
Wednesday from 6:30-8:30
p.m. If you have been putting
off your first visit, now is the
hour. Do not be, left behind,
come now and learn the steps
and also meet some fine peo-
ple. We have dancers come
up from Lake Placid and I
think down from Avon Park
just to dance. Bring a car full
and save some gas. Even if
you dance some place else
other nights, we still want
you with us.
Have you been to Zumba


.


yet to find out why the party?
They meet every Tuesday and
again Thursday from 5:30-
6:30 p.m. You should be able
to make one of these times.
This group is the fastest
growing group in your club at
this time. Don't be left out,
come and check us out.
Monday evening at ice
cream shuffle some nice
ladies of the club added a
great deal to shuffling.
Winnie Wells, Floyann Frey,
Bette Rizor are always such a
pleasure to be near and this
evening was no exception,
unless you were playing
against them. These three
ladies are all pros at shuffle-
board and you are able to see
why when youth are beside one
of them on a court. Being a
lady does not mean that they
need a handicap or even want
one.
Ralph Day is back with us
after his surgery and appears
to be in good shape. He is
such a fine person even when
he is beating you on the
court. He is also a very help-
ful shuffleboard player as


well as instructor of the
game. You will find Ralph at
most tournaments and often
see his name as a winner.
Many people are going
.north so competition in the
park must be slowing down.
Your desk may be closed
for the summer but your club
goes on never the less. You
can play cards, table tennis,
line dancing, Zumba and
shuffleboard three evenings a
week. A couple of summer
Thursday tournaments will
be thrown in just for your
enjoyment.
We must thank Tom Bruha
for all that he does for the
club. Come meet him and all
the other great folks at 333
Pomegranate Ave. (behind
Sebring Police Station).

AUTOOTIE SRIE


Sharion Hudson, Owner of all Around Septic & Sewer
with her dependable crew.


* ive a brief description of your background.*
I am from a very large fanuly I was born and raised on a
farm in North Carolina and moved to Lake Placid with my
family in 1659.
*What type of work did you do previous to getting into the
septic industry?*
I have always worked in customer service oriented
professions. I have done man\ tN pes of work, how ever, for
a large portion of time (9 years) I owned and operated a
sitter, basic care service for the elderly and I worked in the
underground utilities industry (9
years), as well.
*When did you become involved in the septic industry?"'
In 1999, along with a business partner. I helped to form H
& H Septic & Sewer, Inc. W\e worked together until early
2001. After splitting with my business partner I opened All
Around Septic & Sew er. Inc in January of that same year.
*What made you decide to continue in that industry and
open your own business*
I owe it to the ad% ice of a good friend, JoAnn Chandler
of Wauchula State Bank. She convinced me that I should
continue with the same career even though I was no longer
in business with my previous business partner I started All
Around with just one pump truck!
*What else can you tell me about your business')*
All Around is the only female owned and operated septic
company in Highlands County, it is self owned, operated.
and licensed, and there is a combination of twenty-five
years of septic experience between myself and m) staff
*What services do you offer"?*
We offer a variety of services including (but not limited
to) septic tank and grease trap pumping, septic system
abandonment, septic system inspections and certifications,
installations and repairs, filter cleaning, main line and
drain line cleaning, after hours emergency sern ice, and free
estimates.

There are seven employees (including myself), three pump
trucks, one service vehicle, and one installation truck with
equipment.

All Around offers services in Highlands, Hardee.
Okeechobee, Polk. Desoto. Glades, and Hendry counties

and the Lake Placid Church of Christ. I also find time to
provide educational seminars and hand out literature about
septic systems
*What is the main thing that sets your septic company apart
fiom others in the business?*
We offer free literature, to anyone who requests, informing
people of general septic .information and the proper care
of then systems. In addition, we all (the entire staff) try to
educate our customers by show ing them what the problem
is. explain why it happened, and let them know how to
prevent it from happening in the future. In my opinion,
proper septic education is the kei!
"*Is there anyone or anything that you attribute your success

Rhodes crowned TOPS 632 Queen


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING A 1982 graduate of
Lake Placid High School was recently
crowned 2008 Queen of TOPS FL
Chapter 632.
TOPS is 'an international support
group of men and women who seek to
Take Off Pounds Sensibly.
Theresa (McCoy) Rhodes lost 31.5
pounds to reach her weight loss goal and
KOPS (Keep Off Pounds Sensibly) sta-
tus.
"I've been a diabetic for 24 years,"
she said. *<''ve struggled with weight
issues my whole life."
Three years ago, after her daughter
was born, she decided it was time to
take matters into her own hands. Her
mentor and friend Carolyn Ryder told
her about TOPS and encouraged her to
join.
"I didn't join TOPS so much to look
good, but to feel good. I had to make a
choice ... my life or my health," she
said.
Rhodes, whose little claim to fame, is
serving as the Green Dragon mascot
while attending Lake Placid High
School, said she tried to cut junk food


out of her diet, watched what she ate and
paid attention to portion control.
It wasn't easy to reach her goal.
Besides TOPS members, she had a great
support system that included her 8-year-
old son, Ryan. "If he saw me eating
something I shouldn't he'd ask, 'Mom is
that on your diet?" she said.
Rhodes said, "I never Wanted to be a
swimsuit model, but I wanted to be
healthy enough to swim with my kids."
She was crowned by last year's
queen, Carolyn Ryder. "Carolyn is my
mom in my heart. It's because of her I
joined TOPS. She's the one I can always
depend on. She's always been my sup-
port system."
Rhodes advises others who want to
reach their weight-loss goal to get seri-
ous about it. "Set a goal and believe you
can reach that goal," she said.
Rhodes and 'her husband Kevin are
both Lake Placid natives. They have two
children. She worked as a pre-school
teacher for 20 years.
Rhodes serves as chapter photogra-
pher. She was recognized in a special
ceremony at her local chapter in April.
She will represent the Lake Josephine


Club at State Recognition Days in
Orlando in July.
Chapter leader Judy O'Boyle said,
"At all levels, chapter, area, state and
international, TOPS treats its best losers
like royalty. Best losers who meet their
weight loss goals and reach K.O.P.S.
status are crowned queen and king."
"It's been a joy for all of us to see
Theresa bloom from a quiet little rose-
bud to a beautiful, outgoing rose,"
O'Boyle said.
Pauline Pfleiderer lost 30 pounds and
was named runner-up for queen.
The local chapter also had a state
Division 1 winner, Ervin Edson of Lake
Placid, who will also be recognized in
Orlando. Division 1 is a beginning
weight of at least 300 but less than 400.
Edson lost 66.75 pounds.
TOPS FL Chapter meets at the First
Baptist Church of Lake Josephine at
3:30 p.m. Monday, with weigh-in
between 2 p.m. and 3:20 p.m. Guests
and new members are always welcome.
For more information, call O'Boyle at
840-1331 or visit the organization's
Web site at www.tops.org.

Alert: Anesthetic Techniques
for Cataract Cases." The arti-
cle, edited by local CRNA
Jay Horowitz, compares
anesthetic techniques, across
three national "high-volume"
ophthalmology centers.
Cataract surgeries and
their requisite techniques can
vary, and are influenced by
the cooperation of patients,
how strong a patient's eyelid
squeeze, is and the prefer-
ences of the surgeon. The
Outpatient Surgery Magazine
article describes Newsom's
preferred method, a pairing
of topical anesthetics with
light intra-operative sedation
administered through the
assistance of pledgets, a sur-
gical compress applied
directly under the lower lid.

Dear Pharmacist: My
vision is getting blurry.and I
have to squint to read. My
ophthalmologist says it's
part of the aging process. I
don't want to waste my
money, but I'm scared to go
blind. What vitamins will
enhance my eyesight?
-A.L. Lodi, Calif.
Answer: The best sight-
savers are actually pig-
ments, as in 'dyes' that
impart color to fruits and
vegetables. Like bilberry,
which is a pigment that
makes berries blue.. If you
eat five or more servings of
colorful organic fruits and-
veggies, your vision should
improve after a fe, months.
Adding high-quality supple-
ments will, accelerate that
outcome and further reduce
the risk of cataracts, glauco-
ma, eye floaters, retinopathy
and optic neuritis.:
Before you buy any vita-
mins, peek in your medicine
cabinet; some drugs can
make your vision fuzzy.
Among them, digoxin,
HCTZ, Dyazide, Lyrica,
cold remedies and allergy
pills. sNow, here are the best
eye-loving nutrients:
Bilberry Protects the
retina and improves night
vision; reduces cataracts,
macular degeneration, and
glaucoma. Bilberry is relat-
ed to blueberries and it con-
tains "anthocyanosides,"
which sweep away free rad-
icals. Eat the berries or take
bilberry extract, about 80
mg twice daily. If combined
with grape seed.orlutein,1


Dear Pharmacist
Suzy Cohen

even better.
Zeaxanthin & Lutein -
These yellow-orange pig-
ments are called
"carotenoids" and they
impart color to leafy green
vegetables, brussels sprouts,
sweet potatoes, tomatoes,
papaya and corn..
Carotenoids can quench free
radicals and lower your risk
of cataracts and macular
degeneration Good formu-
las will blend these sister
nutrients about 20 mg
lutein and 2 mg zeaxanthin.
Beta carotene -
Helpful if you see a 'haze'
or glare in your vision. It
makes pumpkins and carrots
that familiar orange and
protects the human retina.
. Drug muggers of beta
carotene include antacids,
reflux medicine, Questran,
mineral oil or the diet pill
Alli (and Xenical).
Definitely supplement if
you take those medications.
Choose good brands, OK?
Synthetic beta carotene is
harmful, whereas natural
beta carotene "from D.
Salina" or "from an algae
source" prptects vision.

Good Shepherd

offers grief support


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Children
and teens who have lost
loved ones grieve just as
deeply as adults, but they
have different ways of
expressing their grief.
Healthcare profession-
als also generally recog-
nize the death of a spouse
as major stress event in a
person's life.
And that stress can be
compounded when the
death occurs in a younger
couple.
Good Shepherd
Hospice offers a grief
support group specifical-
ly designed for children

Dosage varies from 12 -
25,000 IU taken once daily.
Hyaluronic acid or HA
- This compound makes the
jelly-like liquid that fills up
most of your eye. HA can
help maintain moisture in
the skin and eye so it's great
for people who buy a lot of
wetting formulas like
GenTeal or Refresh. Those
are excellent fixes, but their
benefit is fleeting. When
HA supplements are' com-
bined with essential fatty
acids (like omega 3 fish
oils), you create even more
lubrication (and a fantastic
defense against Sjogren's
Syndrome). Dosage of HA:
100 200 mg daily and fish
oil: 500 1,000 mg once or
twice daily.
Ginkgo biloba -
Protects the optic nerve and
the retina. Particularly help-
ful for diabetics and people
with multiple sclerosis.
Dosage: 60 mg once or
twice daily. Careful it
enhances the effect of
blood-thinners.

Lifelong asthma may
really just be the result of
allergies to casein (dairy) or

Getting sibling iv


.Having more than one
child'in your family almost
guarantees disagreements,
arguments and competition
between the kids, at least
sometimes. Your children
may love one another, but
disagreements between sib-
lings still happen and still
S drive most parents crazy.
It's called "sibling rivalry"
and its roots are probably
buried in our prehistoric .
ancestors when surviving
often meant.you had to be
number, one in your parents'
Sees. Today, actual survival'
isn't the issue, but staying
number one in the parents'
minds still is.
Young children often feel
threatened when a sibling is
born. They see parental love
as limited and finite, but
suddenly there's someone
new to love, meaning less
love for the older child.
It's not an irrational fear.
A new baby is usually the
center of attention and, out
of necessity, takes up more
of the parents' time. The
older child probably feels he
or she is suddenly less
important and probably
starts to misbehave to win
back more attention.


The .cure for that problem
is to demonstrate to your
children that you love them
all. Simply saying it has no
real affect. But when you set
.aside some "special time"
for the older child, offer
your unfocused attention,
and give plenty 'of hugs and
reassurances. you're demon-
strating your love and over-
coming that sense of feeling
threatened. .
As children get older, it
stops being jealousy over
parental love, and is
replaced by competition is
for parental attention.
Siblings may compete to
have better grades, be better
in sports, or demonstrate
better musical or artistic ,
skills .'
That's often a good thing,
leading to higher levels of
accomplishment, if kept
under control. While you
want to praise a higher-
achieving child, this should-
n't be at the expense of sib-
lings. If one child is always
"winning," you may want to
tip the scales slightly and
give the other child extra
attention and time.
But competition can get
out of hand, threatening fam-
