County hustling to get mitigation plan ready in time

Lost data could hamper efforts to qualify for future FEMA grants


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING Highlands County
needs a new plan for Local
Mitigation, and they need it now.
Unfortunately, they don'trhave all
the data they need to do the new plan,
and that, according to Federal
Emergency Management Agency's
(FEMA) website, could cost the
county hundreds of thousands in
grant money in the upcoming years.


A Local Mitigation Strategy (LMS)
Plan is what the federal government
and the state uses to determine the
cost benefits to granting money to
each community to help with recov-
ering from a disaster.,
The strategy includes the historical
data for every man-made and natural
hazard that has been experienced as
well as an outline for ltow to reduce
or eliminate risks to people and prop-
erty from future hazards.


The plan has to cover everything
from a nuclear accident to a pandem-
ic flu outbreak to flooding.
It is a very, very complicated affair,
and takes years to input, correlate,
and formalize the results.
Highlands County, and every
municipality and special district
within the county, has until Nov. 17
of this year to get it done.
:And it was announced at the last
meeting in April that the a lot of the

By SCOTT DRESSEL

AVON PARK The second man
investigators, say was involved in a
2008 gunfight in Avon Park where an
innocent bystander was shot in the leg
was booked into the Highlands County
jail on Friday.
According to reports, 30-year-old
Derian Orret Thelwell and 24-year-old
Brian Adrian Welch got into an argu-
ment on Sept. 24, 2008, in front of
Squally's restaurant/bar at 220 W.
Garrett Road around. 5:30 p.m. The
victim, a 44-year-old Avon \Park
woman, told investigators that she saw
the two men lea'e the
area on foot and both C
returned *with hand-
guns and began shoot-
ing at each other.
A portion of one of
the bullets was
removed from the
woman's leg at the Thelwel
hospital and a bullet
impression was found
on the east wall of the
building.
. The victim also told
investigators that both
Smen have approached
her several times and
'offered to pay for her Welch
medical bills if she
would not continue to cooperate with
the investigation.
Thelwell was arrested Thursday in
Orange County on a warrant and was
brought back to Highlands County to
face charges of attempted murder,
using a weapon during a felony, firing
a weapon in public, shooting into a
building and obstructing justice.
Welch was arrested on Jan. 16 and
faces the same charges as Thelwell in
addition to possession of a weapon by
a convicted felbn, resisting arrest with-
out violence, habitual driving with a
suspended license, two probation vio-
lations and two violations of condi-
tional release.

County

votes to

increase


towing

fees
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING County
commissioners voted 4-0
on Tuesday morning, with
County Commissioner
Guy Maxcy absent due to
health issues, to raise the
maximum fees towing
companies can charge
when called out by the
county.
Linda Conrad, zoning,
department director,
informed commissioners
that the rates for towing
were long overdue.
According to Conrad,
the last increase was done
in September 1999, when
the ordinance was put
into place, and had not
been adjusted for cost of
living expenses since
then.
And other counties,
such as DeSoto and
Okeechobee, have much
higher towing rates than
Highlands.
"We took an average
from the surrounding
counties, including Polk,
Hardee, Highlands and
Okeechobee, and deter-
mined an average and
increased each section
accordingly," Conrad
said.
The change allows for
the maximum fees for
towing to be increased
from 10. to 35 percent
depending to the specific
service performed.
The fee for towing a
regular vehicle or light
truck, defined as a class A
vehicle, increase from
$85 to $115. Class B
vehicles, those weighing
8,000 pounds to 20,000
pounds, saw a increase in
the basic fee from $150 to
$180, and .Class C vehi-
cles, those over 20,000
pounds, increase just $25
per tow from $250 to
$275.
The per mile rates for
Class B and Class C vehi-
cles also increased. Class
B went up from $4 per
mile to $5, and Class C
increased from $5 to $6
per mile.
Debra Witmer of
Rodney's Towing thanked
the commission for con-
sidering the long overdue
increases.
"We appreciate you
taking a look at this, and
thank you for helping to
keep small businesses in
business," Witmer said.
Commissioner Edgar
Stokes questioned some
of the increases, stating
, that he wanted to make
sure that citizens were not
double billed.
According to Witmer, a
typical bill runs around
$100 to $120, and the
administrative fee is for
notification and certified
mailings that have to be
done if the vehicle is left
over six hours on a stor-
age lot.
"Just because a towing
company is called out
does not mean that you
will be towed automati-
cally to our yard. If you
are on the scene, you can
have us tow the vehicle to
your own house if you


wish," Witmer stated.
"Overall, this just dic-
tates the maximum fees if
there is a need for some-
one to be towed from an
accident and the county
has to call them out to
take care of it,"
Commissioner Jeff
Carlson clarified.

Man jailed for attacking wife,

shooting gun in front of 4-year-old


By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun.com
SEBRING A 47-year-old Sebring man
faces four felony counts and five misde-
meanor counts after allegedly attacking his
wife and shooting at her twice, all in the pres-
ence of the his four-year-old granddaughter,
who lives with him and his wife.
The man, whose name is being withheld by
the News-Sun to protect the identity of the
victims, had reportedly been drinking all day
during a fishing trip Saturday to the Sunshine
Skyway Bridge in Pinellas County and after
returning to Highlands County became angry
over a phone call his wife received from a
man named Michael.
About 10 p.m., the arrest report said, the
wife and granddaughter were in the girl's bed-
room when the suspect began beating on the
door with the butt of a .38-caliber pistol and
fired one round through the door. The bullet
was found lodged in the opposite wall and
passed directly over the child's bed, the report
said.
The woman told investigators she had seen
this type of behavior many times before and
"couldn't take it anymore and told him to go
ahead and shoot her," the report said.
The man then reportedly ran into the room
and grabbed his wife around the throat, threat-
ening to kill her ahd himself. He then ran out

She was gathering items for her and the
child when the man ripped the screen off the
window and threw a full can of beer at the two
victims. The can landed at their feet, the
report said.
The man then ran back into the house and
grabbed the woman by her hair, pulling it
forcefully and yelling for her to get out.
,The woman and child went to the car and
were just about to get in, the report said, when
the man fired a round through the rear win-
dow on the driver's side, standing within three
feet of the victims when he fired the gun. The
spent round was found inside the car.
The victims were then able to get in the car
and drive away, calling 9p1 from a different
location.
During -the investigation, a pipe with
residue of marijuana inside it was found and
the residence. The man latter reportedly
admitted to all of the allegations, including
ownership of the pipe.
He was charged with three counts of aggra-
vated assault with a deadly weapon and one
count of felony domestic battery, as well as
two counts of simple assault (threats), one
count of battery, one county of misdemeanor

Sun 'N Lake isn't
what it was
supposed to be
Editor:
I am responding to the let-
ter written by Karen Soares
about the people of Sun 'N
Lake being held hostage.
It's been :this way since
we moved in here 12 years
ago and Sun 'N Lake has a, .i .
bad reputation because of
this.
We have the same ques-
tion asshe does. What are
the dictators trying to hide?
Why are they. able to use our
money to fight against us.
We have always thought this
was a very corrupt commu-
nity with the exception of a
few people trying to do the
fair thing for everyone living.
here, but theN don't seem to'
have a chance against the
dictators.
We don't seem4o have a
voice'in anything that is
going on here because we
have the wrong people run-
ning things. It's like every-
thing else when people get
some power, they take
advantage. Maybe we should
rename this area Somalia.
The large landowners
shouldn't have a vote. They
don't live here!
Shouldn't the .landowners
have to keep their lots
cleaned off? It's a fire' haz-
ard and people around them
throw their brush and junk in
them even garbage. If
these lots get struck by light-
ning, the houses around
them are going to burn to the
ground.
Another question.I have is
- is this a deed restricted
area or not? Why doesn't
everyone follow the rules
that we were handed when
we moved in there? We are
paying to live in a deed
restricted area, but the rules
aren't being enforced. We
thought everyone would
have to keep their yards up,
but there are certain people
(and you know who you are)
that don't do anything -
including mowing their
yards and pulling weeds and
it looks like a jungle. Now I
know your people on the
board wouldn't live next to
that. It ruins everyone else's
property. This isn't the nice
subdivision we thought we
Were moving into.

Charity begins at

Editor:
A newspaper of April 20
published an article by
Patrick Buchanan on "Why
Europe is bailing out of
Afghanistan." I am not a big
fan of Mr. Buchanan, how-
ever, I found this article
quite interesting.
The gist of the article, is
straight forward and its
headline states "Our
European NATO allies are
bailing out on us.
Afghanistan is to be


TODAY'S LETTERS

America's war." This infor-
mation surfaced at the recent
meeting of NATO attended
by President Obama and
members of his administra-
tion.
Europe sees no threat
from Afghanistan and as his-
tory shows us only too well
,the war lords there have suc-
ce'ssfully kept outsiders,at
bay. To make a long story.
short,.Europeans have had
their fill of both the Iraq and
Afghanistan conflicts. That
leaves the United States
holding the bag.
What have we accom-
plished in Iraq is to do away
with Saddam Hussein's dic-
tatorship. Even though our
going there in the first place
was based on poor intelli-.
gence, we brought Iraq what
passes for a.democratic form
of government.
That said, let's disengage
and get out. I don't believe
staying there for two or three,
more years will make any
difference, It will be sink or
swim whenever we .leave and
our sacrifices have been
enormous in our lives lost
and money and supplies
spent. The same thing
applies to Afghanistan. Why
sacrifice more lives in a,
backward fractured nation
content to live for the most
part in the 17th century?
Our foreign aid and
defense spending in these
two countries alone tops
$174 billion! Think what
that could do to relieve the
financial and economic prob-
lems here at home.
While we're at it, let's
review our foreign aid to our
former allies in these two
wars. If they are content to
live without aiding us, then
they'.don't need all the
money and goods that we
currently provide to' them.
Our savings here again
exceed $41.5 billion.
When I was growing up in
the 1930s, I remember my
grandparents talking about
what World War I cost. What
amazed me even as a young-
ster were the comments
made about which countries
had repaid their war debts.
The only one was Finland,
the smallest of them all. So
don't expect that any out-
standing loans will ever be
repaid in full by our
European allies. We need to
change our thinking on our
foreign policy.
Charity begins at home.

many of us by speaking
badly of Bush, but this one
has topped even Carter. Yes,
.that's change alright. I have
yet to see any change for
good.
Now, the only reason he
put our country in danger by
bringing up this torture
issue, which is shocking in
itself to be done by a
President, is to take every-
one's attention from all the
programs he's getting ready
to put upon Americans. And
I do mean put upon. He's
still a community organizer
and knows exactly how to
successfully fool the gullible
to redistribute the wealth,
ration health care, legalize
illegal immigration, double
our energy costs, change our
culture even more, all of
which will turn us into a
third world country. And he
has nominated all the right
people to help him do it.
Yes, this is change we can
believe in.
God help us. Americans,
wake up and smell the cof-
fee. We need to pay attention
to the bills being put forth in
Congress, like still another
hate crime bill coming up
next week. It is the politi-
cians who are responsible
for the divisiveness among
us, because they know that
divided we will fall. We
need to write and call our
representatives in Congress.

rollers and door prize seek-
ers get a chance to snuggle
up to Lady Luck during the.
upcoming Casino Night
sponsored by the Avon Park
Chamber of Commerce..
Taking place Saturday at
the P-inecrest Clubhouse,
the festivities will begin at
7 p.m. with blackjack,
craps, and roulette for those
who care to take a chance.
"This is always a fun
time," said David
Greenslade, the chamber's
executive director.
"It is a relaxing night out
where folks can just enjoy
the excitement of the
evening," he added.
According to
Greenslade, participants get
a great bargain for their
$25, which includes $500


worth of chips, heavy hors
d'oeuvres, prizes, and a
chance at a week at a condo
in Sky Valley, Ga. provided
by Bill Jarrett Ford.
Greenslade also said that
there were still tables avail-
able for sponsorship.
"For $150 in sponsor-
ship, you get four tickets
for admission, and all that
goes with that, so you are
just paying $50 for the
sponsorship. That's a bar-
gain," Greenslade said.
Corporate sponsors for
the event include: Florida
Hospital, Progress Energy,
Embarq, Heartland
National Bank, Highlands
Independent Bank,
Highlands Today, and 'the
Main Street CRA.

Monica Sherwood, one of
the mothers, helped translate
Palmer's instructions to her
students to the roughly
dozen parents in the room.
They opened the event
with the pledge of allegiance
and then moved into songs,
dance and other activities
designed for Spanish speak-

English.
Finally after "re-enact-

students got a whack at a
pifiata.
"It's really neat and brings
our community together,"
Palmer said. "We have social
issues and maybe this is one
way we can start healing."
Palmer helps the young-

by teaching them about
American holidays, but help-

Doors, the bathroom and
other items were marked in
both languages to facilitate
this learning.
"They have to see what

Palmer said. "They don't


know the words so you have
to have a way to bring it to
them."
By the end of the year,
which for some children
starts in November when
their parents come to the
county for work, the children
know how to speak English

the county is on the right track.
"We already have a plan in place at the
local level, we just need to review and update
what we have. It is now just getting it all
together,?' Buchans said.
"We have to add any new critical facilities,
and update the information we have now, but
we are just now in the stage of reviewing the
overall plan," she added.


When asked if the county would be ready
by the November deadline, Buchans respond-
ed, "That's our goal."
Buchans also stated that the county would
begin to start scheduling workshops within
the next couple of months to keep the public
informed and updated.
The LMS committee is scheduled to meet
again on May 17 at 8 a.m. in the small meet-

Wolfe signs on for



Daytona revival
By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
Anyone who knows of
Me'gan Wolfe's prowess in


the swimming pool could
imagine that she'd take her
talents to the collegiate level.
The question only would
have been, to where?
"There were a couple
schools I was looking at,"
Wolfe said in a phone inter-
view. "But between the
scholarship, the coach and
the school itself, I figured
this had the most for me."
That school would be
Daytona State College,
which is reviving its' swim-
ming program after a nearly
30-year hiatus.
The program had been cut
in the early '80s, but recently
decided to bring it back and
have decided to do it in a big
way, starting with the man
that will be running the pro-
gram,,Ste e. Lochte., .
Lochte is the father and
coach of Ryan Lochte, the
current world record holder


in the 200-meter backstroke 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

Panthers didn't have enough to stick in the state tournament, falling to Chipola. Below:
Amanda Leiter snares this pop fly Saturday as SFCC bowed out of the Gulf bracket of the
state tournament at the Auburndale Softball Complex with a loss to Chipola. It should be
noted that the Panthers two losses were to the teams that would end up second in the
bracket, Northwest Florida, and third, Chipola.


Lady Panthers done


'but not down

By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
WINTER HAVEN There
was little doubt as the game
progressed, that the '09
Sbuth Florida softball season
was soon to be over.
Saturday's 10-2, mercy-
rule loss to Chipola ended the A.7 ,"
season in a tough way, but
not so bad as one might 7
think. .
"I would've like to stay
another day." head coach
Carlos Falla said. "But we ,
outlasted three out of four .
number one and number two
seeds. The top two teams in
our conference were two and
out.",
So there was some solace
in that, but even moreso
when the play on the field
was looked at.M
"In three games we didn't
have a single error defensive- .
ly," Falla said. "We put the
ball in play, played
respectably and did the best
we could. The girls played
their hearts out."

Veterans Tourney a hit


at Placid Lakes


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID The
Veterans Golf Tournament
was held at the Placid Lakes
Country Club this April and
fun was had by all.
Everyone felt like a win-
ner at the third edition of the
tournament hosted by the 40
& 8th Voiture 863 of the
.American Legion Placid
Post 25.
Chuck ''anid ; Donna
Pedrey's team 'scored the
lowest score with a handi-
capped total of 32.
The next best was the
team of David Griggs of
Coral Sands Construction in
the low 40s. This team was
composed of the group
which is constructing the
new Highlands. County
Veterans Service Office: it
is set to be dedicated on
June 3.
The golfing event was
followed by an awards din-
ner. The four closest of the
pin winners and a multitude
of door prizes, spread
among the 66 participating
golfers were awarded.
The monies raised from
the tournament was distrib-
uted beneficially to the
Veterans Assistance fund
($1,500), a Nursing
Scholarship at SFCC
($1,000), Jr. Golf Program
of Placid Lakes Country,
Club ($500) and BSA
Venture Group 899 ($300).
The valiant efforts of the
volunteers and the support
.of over 50 companies,
groups and individuals are
gratifying.
All of which goes back to
those who desire the contin-
ued supporting veterans and
the youth of our area.
To all of you that con-

Thing...
Dan Hoehne


Another potential public-
relations snafu befell the
poor Yankees Monday
night and yes, I mean
that 'poor Yankees' some-
what sincerely, tongue only
partially in-cheek.
I mean, sure, they priced
some tickets way too high,
considering the economy


now, but they really could-
n't have foreseen that.
The embarrassingly
empty seats must have
their marketing department
in a tizzy as to what to do,

LOOKING BACK

15 YEARS AGO
May 7, 1994: Lake Placid's Willie Ward culminated a stellar career as a Green Dragon by bringing
home two medals from teh Class 2A State Track and Field Finals. Ward earned a silver with a second-
place finish in the 100-meter dash and a bronze in the 220 for his third-place finish. Ward also ran the
anchor leg of the 440 relay team that ran to a fifth-place finish in Gainesville.
25 YEARS AGO
May 6, 1984: Even Ward's great effort couldn't quite match what fellow Lake Placid alum Pat Jones
did ten years earlier as Jones won gold in both the 220- and 440-yard dashes at the Class 2A State Final.

Wolfe dives in with Falcons


Continued from 1B
Having a. man of his
stature at the helm, other
luminaries of the sport were
seen as the first-recruiting
class gathered for an en
masse, signing and met with
'84 Olympic gold medalist
and current NBC swimming
analyst Rowdy Gaines.
--


"It was very cool," Wolfe
said of meeting Gaines.
"And for him (Lochte) to be
interested in me is very spe-
cial."
The newest Falcon looks
to major in Physical
Therapy at Daytona, but in
the meantime will spend the
summer swimming with the


Highlands Hurricanes Swim
Club, coached by her father
Marvin.
"I'll be doing a lot of
swimming with that over the
summer," Wolfe said.
"Hopefully that will get me
ready for my first college
season."

Home runs shouldn't be Yankee worry


Continued from 1B
they left them out.
With inclement weather
hitting the east coast,
Monday night's match-up
with the bitter-rival Red Sox
was delayed by rain for quite
some time.
At a certain point, from
unknown authorization,
some stadium personnel,
allegedly, told hundreds of
paying customers that the
game had been canceled.
Maybe intended as a kind
gesture to allow those folks
to head home and get out of
the rain, that declaration of
cancellation wais incorrect.
So, of course, when the
slew of fans that had left the
park then found out the ,,
game was, in fact, going to
be played, they tried getting


back in only to be rebuffed
by the Yankee's strict no re-
entry policy.
Obviously it's not some-
thing the organization want-
ed to have happen.
Like they'd want the tele-
vision viewing audience to
see even more empty seats in
their brand new ballpark that
already has too few fannies?
It was already the smallest
crowd to watch a Yankee-.
Red Sox game in six years.
But when the game did get
going, those remaining in the
stands were treated to five
more home runs in. the unex-
pectedly lively hitter's yard.
That now makes it 36
home runs having been hit in
the first 10 games played
there, a new record besting
the 35 hit in the first 10


games at Municipal Stadium
in Kansas City (1955),
Enron Field in Houston
(2000) and Miller Park in
Milwaukee (2001). ,
Some are seeing that as a
bad thing, and the organiza-
tion is scrambling to figure
out how to solve it.
But that, to me, is one of
the few things that have
gone right at the new stadi-
um.
They are known, histori-
cally, as the Bronx Bombers,
after all.
For years, new ball parks
were being built smaller to
make for more home runs -
we all know that chicks dig
the long ball.
Dudes do too, which is
what, essentially, began the
whole steroid era.

But if we're to believe
that individual enhancement
is on the decline, then it's a
good thing that the parks are
enhanced for the home run.
There doesn't seem to be
anything in need of fixing on
that front.
The homers are what will

Well, as long as they're

FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS


Sebring Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamberlin
SEHRING It is always nice to
have George Rosema and Tony
Beckwith shuffle with us. These two
add much pleasure to your game and
those that are near by.
If you have received a card from
the club lately and enclosed may have
been a homemade packet with a tiny
cross on it. Inside you will find "A
Cross In My Pocket" written by
Verna Mae Thomas. Nancy
Brockelbank makes these and gives
them out to people under the weather.
Ruth Parker was telling us about
Winter Haven courts with the new
beads sealed on the court. She was
not impressed with them and every-
one that has played on them that I
have spoken with did not like them
either.
Line dancers have room for a few
more dancers, male or female.
Always room for more people to
share in the fun. Bonnie Loomis and
Maria Sheehan travel up from Lake
Placid every Wednesday just to dance
at the club. When the group is danc-
ing, you do not see a sad expression
on any face. Keep in step and give us
the once over. You may want to try
more than looking. All areas from
Zumba, card playing, table tennis and
then shuffleboard is open to you.
Line dancing will help sharpen your
skill at dancing along with your
mind.
Jim Jackmeyer, Jim Johnson, and
Len Jasinski can be found playing
ping-pong at the club. We do need
more players for this sport along with
new tables. Male and female players
are always irfvited as well as needed.
Dean Bennett gave it a try and I
understand he did well. Be sure and
invite a guest with you for table ten-
nis or any clubactivity.
You will see Betty Rizor and
Winnie. Wells at most every club
event. We still miss Joe and Lisa
LaCotti, and %% e hope that they are all,
right. John Bushee is still doing it all
and he does not have help any longer.
He has ice cream shuffle Monday and
Wednesday evening starting at 6:30
p.m. Twenty-five cents is the cost for
the evening and Saturday is pin shuf-
fleboard at no cost. Come and try pin
shuffle to see how you like this game.


Emotions run very high in this game
and people are fun to hear, as they
knock over the pin.
If you have some time on your
hand,, come visit us at the club. We
have more going on than most have
time. Come and see what you are
missing, if you are not a member as
yet; we're at 333 Pomegranate Ave.
(behind Sebring Police Station).
Tropical Harbor
By Barbara Kel/eher

LAKE PLACID Saturday our
close knit community held a memori-
al in memory of James Aston. Jim
and his wife Lucille have lived in
Tropical Harbor for many years and
everyone who knew Jim loved him
and enjoyed being around he and
Lue. Their son Bruce along with his
family, Lucille's sister and her hus-
band and a great-grandchild were all
present. Bruce told many wonderful
stories of his dad when he was grow-
ing up. The memorial committee put
on a wonderful luncheon. We had
more than 120 family and friends
from the park attend to pay their
respect.
April 25 we had our Monday morn-
ing coed coffee. Thanks go out to
Rick and Brenda Knoche for prepar-
ing the coffee and baking a delicious
assortment of homemade breakfast
breads and thanks go to Carol and
Wil Noel for providing mini-filled
jelly doughnuts. Our emcee was
Duane Dean who told the group it
was a hard act to follow now that
Donna VanDenbergh has returned to
Canada. Duane's jokes were very
good and he did get the crowd laugh-
ing. He then asked if we had any new
residents. Susan Cohen got up and
introduced herself. She-is originally
from Philadelphia. However, this is
her first visit to Monday-morning cof-
fee. "
Next we had a report from Carol
Noel. our Sunshine Chairman. Carol
began by thanking Bonnie Allen for
filling in for her while her husband
Wil was in the hospital. Barbara
Morris has had knee surgery. Sonny
Williams is home from the hospital.
We are all happy to see Wil Noel back
after spending eight days in the hos-
pital. Our sympathy and thoughts go
out to Eldon and Mary Lou Witt, their
grandson's wife Casey, who was only


20 years old, recently passed away.
Duane then asked Virginia Tharp is
she would play for all who were cel-
ebrating their birthday for the last
week in April and the beginning of
May. Well wishes go out to all cele-
brating at this time. Bonnie Allen and
Evelyn Guiney were present. We had
no anniversaries during this particu-
lar week.
Duane told the group that we do
not have a committee for May yet.
Joan Peterson told the group that
John Hoglund will be our speaker
next Monday at the coed coffee. He is
with Community Outreach and will
discuss topics on safety.
Larry and ,Sheree Kiger from
Jacksonville visited with his mother
Luetta Kiger over the weekend.
Bob and Arlene Cloustohn received
an e-mail from their granddaughter
Chantel White, who is now in north-
drn Ethiopia. She was in Amman
Jordan in February and from there
she spent a week in Istanbul, Turkey.
She also went to Jerusalem, Israel
and got a lot ,done in terms of
archaeobotanical work. She was
happy when she had successfully
crossed the Allenby Bridge back into
Jordan. She spent a week at the
American Center for Oriental
Research. Chantel was only in the
U.S. five days when she was assigned
the trip to Ethiopia.
April 28 Ladies Coffee. Our cof-
fee maker and emcee was Marilyn
Cromer. We had 10 ladies present.
Our Sunshine reporter, Carol Noel
told the ladies that the following res-
idents are home from the hospital:
Lloyd Buero and Sonny Williams,
Barbara Moore has had her knee sur-
gery and is now in rehabilitation.
Marilyn read the many names of
members who were celebrating their
birthdays. Happy birthday thoughts
go out to all celebrating their special
date this week.

April 27th at the Bert J.
Harris Jr. Agricultural Center.
There were 75 members
and guests in attendance. The
tables were decorated with
yellow table cloths and
blooming orchids supplied by
Bill and Darlene Ross. The
food was outstanding and
there was a big variety of
delicious dishes made by the
members. Everyone enjoyed
the food and many went back
for seconds and no one went
home hungry.
After dinner, President Ed

past year's activities. Some
of the highlights were dona-
tion of subscriptions of the
American Orchid Society

ing Thunderbird Road.
The society entered a dis-
play in the Ridge Orchid
Society Show in Lakeland
and received the first-place

Clark Pitt, who was the first
president and Hydie Peterson
who was a trustee, were
given honorary lifetime
memberships.
Fabik then gave recogni-
tion to Lori Thompson and
Pete Otway, who co-chaired
the orchid show and all the
other members who were


instrumental in the success of
the show. Fabik gave the out-
going officers and trustees a
gift as a token of his appreci-
ation for the support they
have given him through out
the year.

Sebring Optimist
Club
SEBRING A number of
governmental and civic
agencies have recognized the
great service their volunteers
.have rendered this county
community. The sheriff's
office, school board, Judge
Kelly Champion for
Children Award and others
used the month of April,
National Volunteers Month,
to acknowledge the invalu-
able.contribution by thou-
sands of volunteers that
saved so many programs in
spite of the severe cuts in
funding by the state
Legislature.
For the last six weeks, we
have viewed through the
media remarkable acts of
kindness by regular people,
from free food at restaurants,
to salaries for workers even
though the factory is closed,
to tent cities for the newly
homeless and neighbors
helping neighbors across the
county and country.
There has been an army of
good Samaritans roaming
this country giving aid and
comfort to those greatly in
need. Even the Boys & Girls
Club heeds help to provide a
summer program for some
150 kids, consisting of con-
structive activities to keep
them on track for wholesome
development.. ,
Thus, it is fitting that the
Highlands'County Board of
Commissioners Will pass "a
proclamation acknowledging
what we call Unsung Heroes
of this county. To paraphrase
a common quote, many citi-
zens can say "I am proud to
be a resident of Highlands
County."

"There are usually only four to
five King O'Neal Scholars
across the entire USF System,"
USF Provost Ralph Wilcox
said.
Szoke has come a long way
from bandaging her cousins'
knees as a child, and she attrib-
utes her drive to her parents
and husband.
"I've always been a perfec-
tionist," she said, "but it was
my parents that taught me to
always be that way, to. keep
pushing and never settle for
anything less. My husband has
also been there for me, always
telling me to keep doing my
best in everything."
Growing up in a 'medical'
family didn't hurt either. Szoke


has volunteered at the adult
family care assisted living
home that her parents own in
Avon Park since she was small,
and her brother is a doctor.
Always an overachiever, she
finished all her college prereq-
uisites while still in high
school, and then attended
SFCC to stay close to home
and work part time as a
licensed practical nurse at a
nursing home nearby.
"Erika consistently aimed
toward perfection in every-
thing she did," said Rebecca
Henry, professor, SFCC
Nursing program.
"She modeled the level" of
competence and compassion
that all nurses desire to attain.
We are so very proud of her!"

"Mischief, Mayhem and Laughter abound"
The New York Times


"In Ludwig's fantastical farce, every time the play veers toward
seriousness, he throws a verbal banana peel, a pun or a double
entendre on the path...Side splitting humor."
The Boston Globe

"Shakespeare In Hollywood is deliciously inventive, poignant
and funny, sophisticated and silly, high brow and-low brow...a
hilarious delight." The Baltimore Sun

"A fast, funny, entertaining night" NBC

"Shakespeare In Hollywood will charm your socks off"
The Wall Street Journal

From groceries to diamond jewelry,
you can have practically anything
delivered via the Internet today. That
list includes not just merchandise, but
personal services as well, including
online counseling help, or "cybercoun-
seling" as it's sometimes called.
It's a service a lot of people are
using. For someone suffering from a
fear of crowds or going outdoors, or
who's ill and housebound, online coun-
seling can be a great alternative. But
due to its ease and convenience a lot of
people are taking advantage of such
online services. It's important to
remember, however, that it's not right
for everyone, or every problem, and it
always lacks the face to face interac-
tion that can sometimes help in com-
municating.
Many highly qualified counseling
professionals now offer very effective
help via online counseling, but you
need to check out any counselor before
starting work with them. It takes little
effort or expense to create a website
and call yourself a "counselor," despite
lacking appropriate credentials or train-

ing.
Professional organizations, such as
the American Counseling Association,
have established ethical standards for
cybercounseling that provide online
counselors with clear guidelines to pro-
tect consumers working with them.
These standards require that coun-
selors should offer complete and honest
disclosure about themselves and their
services. An online counselor should
make it easy to find out what degrees
are held and in what fields, what
.licenses and certifications are held, and
professional organizations in which the
person participates (such as the
American Counseling Association or
the American Psychological
Association). Does the counselor spe-
cialize and have experience and-expert-
ise in the area where you are seeking
help?
Where is the counselor located?
There are now cases in courts asking

whether it's legal for someone to be
offering counseling services in a state
where he or she is not licensed.
Answering such questions still does
not guarantee the quality of the servic-
es being provided. A legitimate profes-
sional will offer a trial period, without
requiring an expensive, long-term com-
mitment, so that you can judge if the
services offered are helpful for you.
A professional counselor, following
the ACA ethical guidelines, will inform
a client early in the relationship if
cybercounseling is not the correct
approach, and should suggest alterna-
tives better suited to the problem.
Online counseling can be a valuable
resource for many people, but it does
have its limitations. Ask questions and
evaluate carefully to make sure it's the
best way to get the help you need.

"The Counseling Corner" is provided as a
public service by the American Counseling
Association, the nation's largest organization
of counseling professionals. Learn more
about the counseling profession at the ACA
Web site, www.counseling.org.
