State's seat belt law gets more of a bite


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING Floridians will now have
to ride the road more safely, whether they
want to or not.
Law enforcement officials have been
given the authority to pull vehicles over
when the occupants are not wearing their
seat, belts.
Since 1986, when the original seat belts
law came into effect, drivers could be cited
for not wearing a seat belt, but only after
they had already been stopped for some
other reason, like speeding or running a
red light.
Now a vehicle may be stopped and indi-


viduals cited if a passing police officer
sees that seat belts are not being used.
The change will become effective as of
June 30.
"The most important point is safety,"
said Lt. Chris Miller of the Florida
Highway Patrol. "This is meant to save
lives, not be a revenue raiser."
He added a warning it is easy to see
if a seat belt is not in use.
Miller also said that according to the
National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, 81 percent of Floridians
regularly used their seat belts in 2008.
That compares to 83 percent in the
nation as a whole.


Florida, he said, now joins 26 other
states where law enforcement has the
authority to target non-seat belt users. In
those states 87 percent of vehicle occu-
pants regularly use their seat belts.
According to the NHTSA, that means
the law would save an estimated 124 lives
and prevent 1,733 serious injuries in
Florida every year.
Governor Charlie Crist signed the
authorizing bill into -law Wednesday. It is
called the Dori Slosberg ,and Katie
Marchetti Belt Law (SB344) in memory of
two young women who were killed in
automobile accidents while not wearing
seat belts.

Blown transformer
leads to seizure
of 341 plants
By TREY CHRISTY'
trey.christy@newssun.corn
LORIDA A total of 341
marijuana plants were seized
on Wednesday after a blown
transformer and smell of
marijuana reportedly arose
suspicion from an electric
company employee.
Laurence "Larry" Whalen,
57, of 340 Meadow Lane in
Lorida, was charged with
first-degree felony traffick-
ing of marijuana, producing
marijuana and possession of
narcotic equipment.
Members of the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office
responded to the home at
11:51 Tuesday evening after
being notified by the
employee,
who spoke
with Whalen
at the home
in the
process of
repairing the
bad trans- Whalen
former.
After reportedly smelling
the "odor of fresh cannabis"
the deputies detained Whalen
under reasonable suspicion
that marijuana was being
grown in the home.
Members of the HCSO
Special Investigations Unit
responded to the scene and
discovered extra unused air
conditioners, plant contain-
ers and a makeshift water
supply line made of common
garden hoses in the yard of
the home, the report stated.
Based on the information
gathered at the scene offi-
cials were able to obtain a
search warrant and discov-
ered 341 marijuana plants
that were both live and har-
vested.
Grow lights, irrigation
equipment, cooling equip-
ment, plant containers, car-
bon filters, fertilizers, and
other items were reportedly
discovered inside the home
in addition to the plants.
Whalen is being held at the
Highlands County Jail on a
combined bond of $115,000
for the three charges.

APPD's Perez now also facing perjury charge


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING Avon Park
Police Officer Alberto Perez
was arrested Tuesday for the
third time and now faces per-
jury charges.
This stems from his previ-
ous arrest because he "testi-
fied under oath in an official
proceeding that he has never
taken money in exchange for
a citation being issued or an
arrest being made," according
to the warrant affidavit filed
by Sgt. Jason Lister of the
APPD.
The testimony was taken
during an interview with


APPD Internal Affairs on
April 23. According to
records, Perez's lawyer was
present for the interview.
According to the report,
Perez signed a S'worn
Testimony Notice before the
interview that stated "If you
provide false statements to the
investigator you may be pros-
ecuted," and cited the Florida
Statute number that he was
later arrested for allegedly
violating.
The report goes into detail
about the rules of the testimo-
ny taken by Perez, stating if
he refused to answer he would


be ordered by a superior offi-
cer to answer.
* If he still refused it would
be insubordination, which is a
violation of City of Avon Park
Police Department rules and
regulations, the report stated,
and any admission of miscon-
duct could be used to seek his
removal, discharge or suspen-
sion.
"During the interview
(Perez) stated that he never
stole anything from anyone
while in the performance of
his police duties," Lister
wrote in the report. "(Perez)
further stated that he has


never received money ... in
lieu of a traffic citation or an
arrest being made."
Perez was arrested a week
after the sworn testimony, on
April 30, when an investiga-
tion into charges that he
accepted money in lieu of
making an arrest was report-
edly substantiated by three
witnesses.
He was charged with extor-
tion and one count of official
misconduct stemming from a
traffic crash where he alleged-
ly falsified a crash report and
took $300 in lieu of arresting
a man for having a suspended


license.
The investigation was con-
ducted by the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement.
When the findings of the
FDLE investigation indicated
that Perez made false state-
ments during the interview
with Internal Affairs, he was
charged with one count of
perjury. The bulk of the FDLE
investigation was cited in
Lister's report.
Perez was booked into the
Highlands County Jail
Tuesday and was later
released on $5,000 bond.


Alberto Perez

His first arrest was for
extortion on Dec. 2 for report-
edly taking $200 from a man
during a traffic stop instead of
writing him a ticket.
Perez is currently on unpaid
administrative leave from the
department.


County to

build two

new fire

stations
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.coin
SEBRING County
commissioners .gave the
green light to start the
planning for two new vol-
unteer fire stations at their
meeting on Tuesday.
Citing the need to inte-
grate Emergency Medical
Services (EMS) and fire
stations to improve
response times, Tim
Eures, county emergency
operations director, and
Steve Colharp, EMS
director, told commis-
sioners their plans to
build new stations at West
Sebring and Leisure
Lakes.
"The main objective is
to increase our level of
service," Eures told the
board.
According to Eures,
both stations are past their
prime for effective serv-
ice.
The Leisure Lakes sta-
tion will get an EMS crew
immediately, and the new
plans will remove the
structural problems at that
station, where fire trucks
are too big to fit in prop-
erly.
"This couldn't have
come at a better time, to
have a couple of construc-
tion projects under way.
Everybody is looking to
stimulate the economy,
and this will put contrac-
tors and subcontractors to
work," Eures added.
The commissioners
voted to award a
$168,500 contract to
design the stations, put-
ting the project under
way. The estimated con-
struction cost for each
station is around
$725,000.
Funding for each sta-
tion will be paid by the
fire districts through their
$25-per-year assessments,
and both fire districts
have been saving for new
stations for years and
should be able to fund the
projects with minimal or
no borrowing, according
to Eures.
"For West Sebring, it
looks like if we stay pret-
ty close to that (estimat-
ed) amount, we would be
able to move forward
without any debt," he said
at the meeting.
The Leisure Lakes fire
district may have to bor-
row between $200,000 to
$300,000.

Day of Prayer

News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
A large crowd gathered under the trees by the county courthouse Thursday morning to join
in prayer in celebration of National Prayer Day. It was the 16th time Highlands County
faithful shared their belief in this way. National Prayer Day was first inaugurated in 1952
by an act of Congress. In 1988, also by an act of Congress the first Thursday in May was
designated the day officially. Luke Brooker, retired Clerk of the Courts, acted as master of
ceremonies. The audience listened to guest speakers and several deeply moving musical
performances. The 14 member Sebring High School Show Choir brought people to their
feet after singing a number of Christian of songs.



Search for Avon Park's CRA

director continues on schedule


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun'.com
AVON PARK Ten indi-
viduals and one consulting
company have responded to
the city's advertisement
announcing its new position
for a director of the
Community Redevelopment
Agency. ,
The CRA director will have
a broad range of responsibili-
ties, from overseeing the
three separate entities -
Main Street, the airport and
the Southside to keeping
the city council, as the CRA
board, informed of new regu-
lations and processes, to rais-
ing money through grants, to
attracting new business, to
creating reports and acting as
a spokesperson.
The new director will be
required to have a four-year
degree in business adminis-
tration, planning, marketing,
or a related field. He or she
must also have a minimum of
two years experience in plan-
ning or community redevel-
opment work.
In addition to skills and
experience, the successful
candidate will have to be
readily accessible, willing to


live and work in town.
While the initial job
description was conceived as
a full-time city employee
position, but that has changed
due to financial considera-
tions. In order to save money
the director will now serve as
a contract worker, saving the
city a benefits package. The
director will answer to the
city council as the CRA
board.
The offered compensation
ranges from $40,000 to
$50,000.
Five men have the difficult
task of reducing the group of
11 applicants into a short list
from which the city
council/CRA board will make
the final choice.
The good news is the task*
is difficult because so many
of the candidates are of a high
quality.
MJA Consulting LLC ,
which made it clear the work
would be shared by more than
person, was quickly with-
drawn from search because
the city Wants a director who
can develop a relationship
with the community.
Also knocked out of con-
sideration were two appli-
cants who had no experience

City council makes

skate park fee free


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING The city
council voted to change the
city's policies at the Skate
Park on Tuesday in an effort
to make it more accessible
to the public.
After hearing from all
sides, Council voted to do
away with the fee altogeth-
er, require a liability form to
be on file, have each partic-
ipant show a card, keep the
attendant, keep the park
open the scheduled hours,
but drop the helmet restric-
tions.
Central to the issue at
hand was the current fee of
$30 per year to use the park
and some of the liability
issues.
Sebring Police Chief Tom
Dettman informed the coun-
cil in April that since the
skate park user f6e from $5
per year to $30 to pay for
the attendants, paid use of
the park dropped off.
Several citizens fromthe
audience agreed with Chief
Dettman, but also stated that
the accessibility and the
attitude of the attendants
were also to blame.
"The fee is the problem,"


said Frank Branca, who is
23 and is the owner of the
Gator Board Shop just a few
feet from the park.
"There is such a large
group of skaters still in the
area, but most are going
somewhere else because of
the fee. Not everyone can
afford the 30 bucks; most
skate parks are free,"'
Branca said.
Frank Hernandez, a father
of one skater who some-
times hits the board himself,
assured council that the ran-
dom police checks should
continue, but he attitudes
should also change.
"The atmosphere is let'
see what you are doing
wrong and not let's see if wd
can help. The perception is
that so many times the offi-'
cers that stop are there to try
and catch the kids doing
something wrong. Let's
have the cops out there in a
positive way, have them
spend some time getting to
know the kids and building
a rapport with them. Most of
the kids out there are just
trying to skate, not cause
problems," Hernandez told

New clown museum coming to Lake Placid


Continued from page 1A
clowning caught on in Highlands
County. Big Al guesses Toby has taught
over 1,000 clowns in the last 16 years..
In fact, Big Al said, Lake Placid had
the highest per capital percentage of
clowns in any city's population.
While telling this fact, he suddenly
drooped.
"Unfortunately," he added, "we've
since been displaced. You know which
city has the biggest number of clowns
now? Washington D.C." Big Al leaned
back and laughed, winking when
interviewing clowns, a person has to
take the laughs with the news.
The news is that at noon on
Saturday, May 23, ground will be bro-
ken for an addition to the Clown
House.
The large room, 30-by-30 feet with
10-foot ceilings, will be jam packed
with historical examples of early cos-
tumes, props, art work by clowns and
about clowns and a serious research
library. The 5,000-year history of
clown laughter will be gathered in one
place to educate and inspire.
Included in the collection are two
paintings by the master clown Red
Skelton and 10 portraits of famous
clowns painted by Jim Howell, a leg-
end in the field himself.
' "It's going to be busy in there," Big
Al said, pointing to the wall where the
hew 8-foot-wide passage will break
through.
' For example, local clowns are com-
inissioning their own portraits to be
painted on tiles that will be mounted on
the ceiling. Displays will cover the
walls below.
Big Al emphasized that admission to
the museum will be free, although

House in Lake Placid.


donations are always gratefully accept-
ed, and the space will be available for
community group and public service
organization meetings.
He hopes the community turns out
for the ground-breaking ceremony,
which will be held under circus-like
tents.
Clowns will be out in abundance,
with all the fun they bring with them.
Food has been donated to the local
Boy Scouts, who will be selling it to
raise money for their troop and Scout
house.
The hope is the museum will be
completed in two months.

two of the new muscle cars
were escorted by Sebring
police up Lakeview to a
shady spot by the flag pole
in the center of the crowd.


Along with the car's pro-
duction premier, an auction
was held for each vehicle,
with the proceeds promised
to go to local charities.
Although no bids met the
reserve for either car,
Elwell and Alan Jay still
gave away $1,000 to two
charities picked by random
participants.
Heartland Horses for the

$1,000 from Alan Jay in the

of Sebring, and Heartland

of $1,000 in the name of

Skate park now free

the council.
Other issues were raised
about the attitude of the atten-
dants at the park.
Linda Tucker, owner of
Linda's Used Books, often
allows her 14-year-old son go
to the park, but stated that
sometimes he does not stay
depending on the attendant.
"Some of the attitude from
the attendants is the problem.
My son will look and see who
is on duty, and if it is certain
individuals, he won't go to
the park. We need to make
sure that the adults there are
communicating with the kids
out there, not just kicking
them out. We have a great
group of skaters, and would
like to see them use the park
all the time," Tucker said.
Tucker also added that the
fee is another big reason that
the park is currently under
used.
"The fee is a problem.
These are hard times, and the
fee is hard on a lot of them,"
Tucker added.
Aaron Snyder, a director at
Camp Sparta, a church camp
who recently installed a skate
park, sided with Tucker on
the atmosphere and fee
issues, but add his own twist.
"We build a park at Camp
Sparta because several of the

SEBRING Highlands County Habitat for
Humanity invites women across the county to
help with Woman Build Day, where women
will help fix up a local home.
This is in conjunction with National Women
Build' Week, which ends Sunday, where
Habitat affiliates across the country will bring
women together to work on the projects.
This Saturday's Women Build Day will take
place at the home of WendyBoggs, 514 Violet
Ave. in Sebring, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
"We will be putting up a new metal roof,
finishing up and replacing siding on the home,
and doing some painting," said Julie Diaz-
Nichols, director of Program Services for the
Highlands County affiliate.

individual three of the five
committee members wanted
to know more about.
In the interest of full disclo-
sure, News-Sun reporter Ed
Baldridge is applying for the
position and received five of
five votes.


Boggs, 47 and a grandmother of six, was in
a car accident in 2001 and has not been able to
work since the accident because of hip and
spinal injuries.
"No words can describe how I feel being a
lucky participant (in the Women Build day),"
Boggs said. "Hopefully I can pay it forward
one day."
Women can show up at the site Saturday
morning or can contact Highlands County *
Habitat for Humanity at 385-7156 for more
information.
So far there are nearly 30 women committed
to the event. This far exceeds the 20 volunteers
Habitat initially hoped for, but with more
hands, more work can be accomplished, Diaz-
Nichols said.

and letting us know that they
were not happy with the

According to Snyder, some
kids cited that the fee was a
problem, some the atmos-

some that there were just too
many restrictions.
"Some of the kids cannot

Harder Hall project

moves forward


Continued from page 1A
of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD).
The original cash price
negotiated on Oct. 7, of last
year was $5.3 million.
The recent amendment
lowers the purchase price to
$4.7 -million, with $3.3 mil-
lion due at closing with a
deposit of $200,000 earnest
money to be held in escrow
by Swaine's office.
The remaining $1.4 mil-
lion deferred balance "shall
be evidenced by a promis-
sory note bearing interest at
4.3 percent per annum,"
payable 10 years after clos-
ing, but second and subordi-
nate as a second mortgage
to one or more first mort-
gages.
Councilman John Clark
showed some dislike for the
second position on the note.
"I'm not comfortable
with the city taking a second
position as a mortgage hold-
er. We have no recourse if
this deal falls through,"
Clark stated.
Swaine assured council
that the second mortgage
was a risk, but that he felt
that "the risk was worth it to
get another building back on
the tax roles."
Clark also asked how
much "skin," or money,
Calibre actually had in the
overall project.
Tom Detinger, managing
member of Calibre Group,
made the original presenta-
tion, but deferred all money
questions to their finance
director Bob DePugh.
"We have about $5.5 to
$6 million in the project
through our equity player,"
said DePugh.
DePugh also let Clark
know that the total project
could cost $27-33 million,
but everything now hinged
on HUD coming through.
"We feel pretty *good
about HUD. We have
worked out most of the
details with our 108 loan,
and we think that this sec-


ond mortgage will be OK
with them," DePugh added
to questions from council.
Details of the amendment
were clearly laid out by
Swaine's office.
According to Swaine, the
payment of interest on the
promissory note will be
yearly, unless Calibre reach-
es certain four progress-
based "benchmarks" in the
development of the proper-
ty, at which time other con-
siderations kick in.
Those -benchmarks
include:
(1) If all permits have
been issued on the proposed
four independent living
facility buildings, and con-
struction has commenced
and at least the foundations
on those buildings have
been completed by the date
the first annual interest pay-
ment is due. At that point
the payment will accrue, but
not be due and payable until
the following year.
(2) If the four buildings
have been at least "dried in"
(has a roof and windows) by
the date the second annual
interest payment is due,
then that payment and the
first (if it was not previous-
ly due or paid) will not be
due and payable until the
following year.
(3) If all four independent
living buildings have been
completed and the certifi-
cates of occupancy have
been issued by the date the
third annual interest pay-
ment is due, that interest
payment (and any previous
interest if not previously
due and or paid) will not be
due and payable until the
following year.
(4) If all three of the
above benchmarks have
been met, those delayed
interest payments and all
remaining annual interest
payments will continued to
accrue but will not be due
and payable until the due
date of the principle bal-
ance.

Another waste of
taxpayers' money
Editor:
The "grapevine" is a wonderful
instrument, quite similar to the tele-
phone.
You can get all kinds of information,
that you don't normally get anywhere
else.
For instance, I heard on the
"grapevine" that they are going to cut
county employees' hours to save more
money for other government "pork
jobs."
I wonder why they don't cut the
county officials' salary by 10 percent?
I'll bet that would save the county mil-
lions of dollars, huh?
I got another piece of news off of the
"grapevine," that they are going to
spend another $25,000 of taxpayers
money. to build a wall around the
Sports;Complex so that the spectators
won't have to look at several piles of
sand next door. My-my.
And we all know that any work esti-
mate usually costs twice as much as
originally estimated.
I wonder whose brother gets this
"pork.contract," huh?
We all know that anything that our
government gets involved in something
is in it for someone.
Another waste of taxpayers' money.

Sheriff's Department
needs to stay downtown
Editor:
Keep the Sheriff's Department down-
town!


TODAY'S LETTERS
Moving the Sheriff's Department to
the Restoration Church or any other
location outside the city is a big mis-
-take. To move the department it will
continually add more expenditure of
time and money to travel to the court-
house as well as create a security risk
in moving prisoners.
Instead, convert the Sebring Middle
School into the Sheriff's Department
where ample parking is already avail-
able. Classrooms would provide space
for personnel departments while the
principal's office could be used for
Sheriff Benton and additional jail space
could be added to the gym.
Think again commissioners and city
council members.

Imagination is the
only limit to evil
Editor:
It is very disappointing to see our
government now condemn the interro-
gation techniques that have kept us safe
since Sept. 11, 2001. The most promi-
nent technique being used is water
boarding. This activity mimics drown-
ing but with no permanent injury. We
must always keep in mind the great dif-
ference between interrogation of an
enemy and torture. Interrogation is the
aggressive questioning and physical
actions without permanent injury to
elicit such information, Torture is pun-
ishment to inflict pain and permanent
injuries that can result in death for no
other reason than hate. It is difficult to
believe this new administration does
not know the difference. Yet, they find
it acceptable to kill American children


by abortion as they are born.
I remember almost 40 years ago
learning about water boarding among
other methods of interrogation. These
things were demonstrated to me prior
to serving in Vietnam. It was never
indicated to me that cooperation with
the enemy would prevent mistreatment.
On the contrary, we were told to expect
abuse if captured and we would be for-
tunate not to be killed immediately. A
terrorist group or a third-world force
has no rules of conduct. They will kill
anyone in any manner to create the
.'Zmost shock and, terror. It is their
weapon of choice.
The individuals in these terror
groups each have valuable information
about attack plans. They do not have
the hierarchy of a typical conventional
military force. In a conventional army
the foot soldier has little information to
give to an enemy about future plans.
Rarely is a military general captured
who usually commands from the safety
of the rear to prevent loss of vital
information. Terror groups on the other
hand need to communicate one on one
with each other. Thus, many of these
terrorists have extremely valuable
information or they can be linked to
others who do have the information to
save innocent American lives.
One must keep in mind that the tar-
gets of terrorists are usually innocent
civilians. The imagination is the only
limit to what evil they are willing to
perpetrate. How would you interrogate
someone who knows about plans by
others to kill you and your loved ones?
I believe no other country acts as hon-
orable as ours gixen the circumstances.

Blue Streak stunner


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
BARTOW The Sebring
Blue Streaks made it to the
regional semifinals for the
third year in a row with a 7-4
win over District 9-4A cham-
pion Bartow Tuesday night.
Pitching dominated the
early going as the
Yellowjackets Gage
Upthegrove and Sebring's
Josh.Chavis mowed through
the orders.
Upthegrove would strike
out 11 through the Seb
first four innings
while Chavis had a I
one-hitter over the
same span. Bar
"He kept us off bal-
ance the first time
through the order,"
Chavis said. "But we
knew if we could get a few
hits he'd get frustrated."
The hits started coming in
the fourth, with Gus Williams
singling up the middle before
Jesse Baker drove him in
with a triple off the right-
field fence and Chavis fol-
lowed with an RBI single to
center.
Five more runs came
'across in the fifth with
Williams driving in two with
a laser-shot line drive that ate
up the Bartow third baseman
and Cody Hoffner and Chavis
each bringing one home with
a sacrifice fly and single,
respectively.
But with three more times
at bat, the Jackets would have
their chances.
"They're not district cham-


'I'll just hope for
two good days
and pray.'
HOPPY REWIS
Sebring head coach
pions for nothing," Sebring
head coach Hoppy Rewis
said. "They won their district
for a reason and they're
going to have something to
say about it. Sooner oi later,
bring they're going to get
their hits."
Two of those hits
came in the bottom of
rtow the fifth which, cou-
pled with some Chavis
wildness, brought in'
three runs to make it a
7-3 contest.
The Streaks hitting was
done, for the most part, as
shortstop Josh Allen brought
his howitzer' arm to the
mound in relief.
Sebring's own shortstop,
Cody Higgins, also came on
in relief and while not domi-
nating, battled his way
through the final two frames,
getting out of'a bases-loaded
jam in the sixth and two run-
ners on in the seventh.
"Cody hasn't had great
stuff, but he's got a lot of
guts'," Rewis said. "He did a
great job and just got through
it."
Bartow did scratch for one
more in their last at bat on a

pop-up to short ended it and
set up tonight's regional
semifinal game against the
Highlanders at Lake Wales.
"Josh (Chavis) is such a
great leader for us that we
wanted him out on the field,"
Rewis said. "He's been out
since he was in an accident
two weeks ago so we
weren't sure what he could


do."
"I'm just glad to be back
playing," Chavis said. "I've
been working real hard with
Dr. Lewis and getting ready. I
just wanted to throw strikes
and get ahead of them and the
defense just played great
behind me. A lot of teams
wouldn't expect us to be
here, they've been doubting


us this year so it feels real
good to get this win."
But th Streaks aren't
going to just settle for enjoy-
ing it.
"We'll enjoy it.as 'much as
you can when you're getting
ready for another game,"
Rewis said. "I'll just hope we
have two good days and
pray."

There may be a divine reason for your pain


Now, I know this is a
touchy subject, but I feel I
must do this. There are many
of you out there that have the
"Messiah Complex," meaning
that you try to fix things that
really are meant to be fixed.
Well, not fixed by you. You
seem to try to find anyone
you can and try to lay hands
on them for their healing.
You never even considered
whether God intended that
type of healing or not. You
never consulted Him.
What if this pain, this hurt
they're experiencing, is meant
for their good? What if it's
meant to teach that person a
lesson for growth so another
level could be reached?
Many times we're just to
quick to jump the gun, trying
to take God's job away from
Him. I'm sure He didn't ask
for your help but you stepped
in anyway and interrupted
God's plan. Now, where it


Sista Speaks
Edith Jebbison

could have been done and
over with, God has to go
around you. Because you tried
to do His job, that miracle was
hindered.
People, we appreciate all
that you do pertaining to the
word but there is a need for
you to step back sometimes
and allow God to do His busi-
ness. He is our teacher, our
Heavenly Father, our provider,
our everything not you.
Every heartache, every
downfall, every pain, every
mistake is not meant to be
fixed.
If we can just get around
blaming our circumstances,
other people and the environ-
ment we'd be OK but we have
to have a crutch. Do you know
how much more blessings will
surround you if you would


just accept responsibility?
If your past felt like you
were on a slow roll to hell,
well, your future won't be any
different than your past if you
continue to dwell on the past.
You should have gained some
type of wisdom from your
past.
Begin to speak what our
Father said about your past
and who you really are. You
are the righteousness of God,
you are heir and joint heir
with Jesus, you have a blood
bought right, you are an over-
comer, you are blessed in the
city, you are blessed in the
field, you are above only;
never, ever again beneath, you
are a child of the King.
Send those demons fleeing.

HEALTH & NUTRITION


Boost your immune


system to avoid flu


Dear Readers:
With all the news about
swine flu, I'd like to
address the best ways to
help keep your immune
system strong. I'Mi not
overjoyed at the prospect of
millions of you getting shot
with vaccinations-that have--
been hurriedly tested, so I'd
rather give you a list of nat-
ural ways to boost immuni-
ty to'swine flu and-other f
bad bugs: -
Rainbow Diet Stop
cooking your vegetables to
death because that destroys
all the precious enzymes
and nutrients. Eat a rain-
bow of fresh organic fruits,_
and veggies like blueber-
ries, red tomatoes, green
asparagus, orange acorn
squash and other related
natural immune-boosting
marvels.
Sleep You need
seven to eight hours of
refreshing sleep every
night. Forcing your b6dy to
sleep with sleeping pills
does not count. Refrain
your body to sleep properly
.and if you need assistance,
ask your doctor about tak-
ing supplements of GABA
or melatonin because those
replenish what your brain
naturally .makes.
Oils Use only
healthy fats such as grape
seed oil, coconut oil, olive
oil and flaxseed oil. No
more margarine or other
forms of trans fats that clog
up your arteries. And take
1,000 mg omega 3 fish oil


daily.
Vitamin D You can
get it from the sun for free.
Get 15 minutes of sun
exposure daily when the
sun is not-at"it peak; don't
use sunscreen. If you'd
rather supplement, take
vitamin D3-a.k-.a. cholecal-- -
ciferol. Studies show that
vitamin D dramatically
reduces your risk for cancer
- a-nd infection-.Dose: -2,000- .
5,000 IU daily.
Colloidal silver It's
a gold standard in my book
because it kills a lot of bac-
teria, viruses and other
micro-organisms. Colloidal
silver is sold at health food
stores and it's what we used
for decades until the advent
of penicillin and other
newer antibiotics.
Garlic and Onions -
They contain antibacterial
substances that help you
defend yourself.
Vitamin E A power-
ful antioxidant, take 400-
800 IU daily, natural
"mixed" tocopherols.
Glutathione or
PectaSol Chelation
Complex (PCC) These
are two different supple-
ments that you can buy at
health food stores and
online to detoxify your
body. They eliminate dan-
gerous metals, pesticides
and poisons the same poi-
sons that weaken your
in uhe system and make
y more susceptible to
infection. Glutathione is
found in avocados and PCC


Dear Pharmacist
Suzy Cohen

is made from citrus rind.
Olive Leaf Extract
and Pau D'Arco-- Two nat-.
ural herbs that help kill
dangerous germs.
Pomegranate or
Cranberry-juice-- If-it's- 100.
percent juice (and not
loaded with high fructose
corn syrup) then yes. Red
berry drinks offer you pow-
erful antioxidants.
Diet Avoid sub-
stances that tax your
immune system or create
allergies. Many people find
they feel better without
wheat (gluten), dairy
(casein), soy, corn, white
sugar, white flour, artificial
sweeteners, MSG and
iodized table salt.
The obvious exer-
cise to lose weight and
drink fresh filtered water!
Swine flu vaccine -
There isn't one yet, but
when it is developed I
won't be standing in line
for it. Should you? That's a
very personal decision.

Kids' Dent receives ADAF award


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Kids' Dent will help improve
children's dental care in Highlands County,
.thanks to an award of $3,250 from the
American Dental Association Foundation's
(ADAF) Samuel Harris-Fund.
Kids' Dent of Highlands County in associa-
tion with the Highland County Dental
Association, the South Florida Community
College Dental Education Program, and the
Highlands County School System combined to
do dental screening on second- or third-
graders- at-all-nine_elJmentarypublic schools.
Letters were sent home to parents or guardians
of each child screened telling them of their
child's dental condition.
--At the- time of the screening, children were
educated in oral hygiene and how sealants are
placed. 'Children were given dental activity
booklets. To date, 840 children have been
screened with one school still scheduled to be
seen.
With permission from parents or guardians,
196 children have had 641 sealants placed at
local dental offices and SFCC. Each child
received a bag to take home containing tooth-
brush, toothpaste, dental floss, and dental lit-
erature for family. No charge is made for these
services.
Give Kids' A Smile program 2009 consisted
of table clinics and a puppet show for 843 chil-
dren in Highlands County with emphasis on
kindergarteners. Once again each child
received dental related goodie bags and dental
activity books with literature for parents,..
Funds from the Harris Fund Grant are also
used to send home dental information to new
mothers at both local hospitals as part of the
Healthy Start Program. An estimated 900 new-
borns and parents are reached each year.
By the end of the 2008-2009 school year, a
total of 2,673 children and their families will
have been reached by the Kids' Dent program.
During the school year 2008-2009, seven
local dental offices volunteered time or con-
tributed funds to support the Kids' Dent pro-
gram. These offices are Dr. Ed Oxer and Dr.
Bill Shiner in Lake Placid, and Dr. Ronald
Owen, Dr. Tina Thomas, Dr. Bill Holth, Dr.
Stephen Hulen, and Dr. Gayle Obermayr in

gram.

Sebring. There were 24 staff members from
these offices along with the six SFCC Dental
Education Center staff, 22 hygiene students,
and 11 dental assistant students who helped
put on programs, and placed sealants.
Kids' Dent was organized in 2000 as a non-
profit organization with the purpose of educat-
ing the children and parents of Highlands*
County in preventive dentistry and to provide
preventive services.
Kids' Dent is pleased to have been selected,
from the hundreds of worthy applicants to
receive funding from the ADAF's Samuel
Harris Fund. The organization is happy to
apply these funds to this program that will help
improve the dental health of children in the'
local community.

National Fibromyalgia ,
Awareness Day is May 12
AVON PARK On May 12,
millions of people worldwide will
join to observe Fibromyalgia
Awareness Day. Led by the
National Fibromyalgia Association,
the theme for this year's campaign
is "Fibromyalgia Affects
Everyone" and focuses on the far-
reaching effects of this common,
chronic pain disorder from bro-
ken lives to the economic costs for
patients and society.
An estimated 10 million men,
i : ".";''. * '


women and children in the United
States suffer from fibromyalgia,
which is characterized by chronic
widespread pain, multiple tender
points, abnormal pain processing,
sleep disturbances, and fatigue.
For those with-severe symptoms,
fibromyalgia can be extremely
debilitating and interfere with basic
daily activities.
Total healthcare costs over 12
months are about three times high-
er among fibromyalgia patients
compared to patients without the
disorder. Fibromyalgia costs the
U.S. between $12-$14 billion.each


year.
Julie Ball, Avon Park, was diag-
nosed with fibromyalgia at Mayo
Clinic in 1995. At that time, her
symptoms were not too severe, but
within months she was in constant
pain. Fatigue followed soon and
Julie's life changed dramatically.,
No longer was she able to do much
.except put a meal on the table.
Shopping was next to impossible.
She leads a local support group for
those interested in reversing their
fibromyalgia as she has. She can
be contacted at 386-5017 or
fibrosem@strato.net.


"Fibromyalgia Awareness Day
provides an opportunity to educate
others in our local community
about this life-altering disorder -
and to bring hope to the millions of
people who suffer from it," Ball
said.

receives accreditation


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK South
Floria Community
College's Radiography pro-
gram recently received
accreditation from the Joint
Review Committee on
Education in Radiologic
Technology (JRCERT). The
program was awarded
accreditation for three years,
which is the maximum
JRCERT awards for initial
accreditation. JRCERT is the
only agency recognized by
the U.S. Department of
Education for the accredita-


tion of traditional and dis-
tance delivery educational

be provided with the requi-
site knowledge, skills, and
values to perform the range
of professional responsibili-
ties expected by employers
nationwide and that they will
be eligible for licensure in all
50 states. It also assures
patients that students who


perform procedures have
appropriate supervision dur-
ing the educational process,
and that the educational pro-
gram is keeping pace with the
profession and its standards.
"I began working on the
accreditation process imme-
diately after I arrived at
SFCC," said Junior Gray,
director, Radiography
Technology.
The first class of SFCC's
Radiography program gradu-
ated Thursday.

'Star Trek' prequel reintroduces classic characters to new audience


;~~:~ ~~ ~ ~~ 24.ri2A~;A.4...


IV


"Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of
the Starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to
explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life
and new civilizations to boldly go where no man
has gone before."

More than four decades after the TV show first hit the airwaves, a new movie is upon us.
The latest story in the "Star Trek" universe simply called "Star Trek" is a story of
befores"
Before Capt. Janeway and her Voyager ship encountered an alien that transported them to
the faraway Delta Quadrant: before Sisko, Odo and Quark kept watch or lusted after latinum -
on the space station "Deep Space Nine:" and before Capt. Picard, "No. 1" and an android named
Data traversed the galaxy in "The Next Generation," there was the tale of a young James T. Kirk
and a half-human-half-Vulcan officer called Spock.
This is where director J.J. Abrams, of "LosI" and "Alias" fame, and w writers Roberto Orci and
Alex Kurtzman chose to start the llth "Star Trek" mo' ie.
It has been seven years since the last film. so here's a bit of a refresher on the series' history, as
well as a who's who of the characters and the new actors filling the historic roles. Plus, some triv-
ia to see if you're ready to trek the "final frontier."
