Fans cheer for their favorite Heartland Idol contestant during
last year's competition at the Circle in downtown Sebring.


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING- The 2009 Heartland Idol
schedule is set. '
According to organizer Diana Walker, the
sixth -annual Heartland Idol will be held
again on the Circle in downtown Sebring.
Last year, Idol consistently drew crowds
of more than 300, but Walker explained that
they are expecting more than 600 in atten-
dance this year.
Local Attorney Jim McCullom, who
assists Walker with the organization, last
week asked the Sebring City Council to
waive the insurance requirement because
the city is already covered for such events.


"This is a city. park, and this is what you
use a city park for. Your (city's) liability is
limited because of sovereign immunity, and
I hate the fact that we are paying for insur-
ance we don't need," McCullom said.
According to McCullom, and the state's
sovereign immunity, the city is only held
liable for the first $100,000 per person and
$200,000 per incident, but requires those
using the Circle for events to carry a $1.5
million insurance rider.
"I would put my foot down if the event
includes street closure and alcohol," City
Attorney Bob Swain said about adjusting

AP city budget: 'We're


going to be way short'

Council, large group of citizens air out concerns

over city's financial crisis at Monday meeting

The Avon Park city council chamber was filled to over-flowing Tuesday night for the council's regular meeting.
The city's bleak financial situation was made clear as the council discussed various solutions. Mayor Sharon
Schuler and council member Joe Wright went out of their way to thank the citizens for turning out. Wright
said citizen participation is the only way to ensure efficient government. They urge citizens to attend the coun-
cil's first budget meeting, at 8 a.m., Saturday, July 18, at the chamber.


Main issues were raised

AVON PARK City council members spoke frankly
and often forcefully Monday night as they discussed the
city's financial situation in front of-a packed chamber dur-
ing their regular meeting.
Repeatedly throughout the three-
hour session, council- members
reminded the audience the immedi-
Sl ate purpose was to discuss and con-
sider, not make final decisions.
The debate was sparked by two
factors an expected shortfall in
tax revenues for fiscal year 2009-10
of approximately $300,000 (which
City Manager Sarah Adelt warned
'We have to could be greater) and a memo by

Unfortunately, 10 possible actions the city council
that mean could take in meeting that shortfall.
The city's financial director,
being : Renee Green, told the council and
pessimistic.' audience the city now collects prop-
erty revenue from only about 15 per-
JOE WRIGHT cent of residents and businesses, due
council member to increased homestead exemptions
and falling property values.
"Property values went down $19 million," Green said.
"We're going to be way short. We're looking at all kinds of
ways to cut back. We're a small town with a small town tax
base."
Council member Joe Wright said, "We have to be realis-
tic. Unfortunately, that means being pessimistic.
"I'm not going to lie to you," he added, saying that cuts
would have to be made. At the same time, he reminded the
audience, it was important to have a civilized discussion.

George Hall listens to debate at Tuesday night's regu-
lar city council meeting. The lively debate was
sparked in part by a memo he wrote city manager
Sarah Adelt suggesting 10 ways the city could save
money. The ideas included doing away with code
enforcement, the Community Redevelopment Agency,
the Recreation Department as well as closing out the
Police Department and bringing in the sheriff's office
in its place.

The warning was given because emotions ran high given
that Hall's memo made several radical suggestions.
Doing away with the Community
Redevelopment districts
For example, Hall suggested doing away with the three
community redevelopment districts and the proposed posi-
tion of an executive director for the Community
Redevelopment Agency.

SEBRING Organizers of the
"Baby K" Run for Child Abuse
Awareness are calling Saturday's
event a success, and a great deal of
that success is thanks to support from
the community.
"I would like to thank.the commu-
nity for all their help with this and the
volunteers who jumped in and did
what they. know well," said organizer
Vicki Tretter. "It takes a lot of people
a lot of time to do this to help some-
one else."
The event was put on in memory of
Kaedyn Short, also known as ."Baby
K," the 22-month-old little girl who
died May 27, nearly
two months after'
allegedly being
abused by Avon Park

money for the May 29

"This was more than. what we origi-

the turnout considering the heat,"
Tretter said. "It was extremely hot but
there, and the ones that did brave the
heat and got out there and did it, it was
awesome." .
The run drew bikers from both
inside the county and around the state.
A group from Orlando, called Bikers
Against Child.Abuse, showed up with
about 10 riders, while other groups
from Clewiston and Alachua County
showed up to join in on the fun.

Time running out for digital

TV conversion aid program

Mid-July will see the end of coupons


By ED BALDRIDGE.
ed.baldridge@newssun..com
SEBRING Time is running out
for those who still have to make the
digital transition for their television
sets and want to get help to do it.
Robert Viera, the local contractor
with the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC), is responsible
for helping people in Highlands,
Hardee, DeSoto, South Polk, Glades
and Okeechobee counties make the
switch from analog to digital recep-
tion.
Viera said that the local program is
scheduled to end in mid-July.
"We help folks get coupons for the
converter boxes and educate the ptib-
lic how to make the move," Viera
said.
"It is going smooth so far. The
FCC is really doing a good job edu-
cating the public and letting them
know how to get help, and all the help
is free, or close to it," Viera added.
The few snags that are happening,
according to Viera, are mostly because of
the right antenna equipment, and the need
for help understanding where all the wires
go.
"Most of the calls are about how to hook
the boxes up. We are getting some people
who need to upgrade their antenna, and the
FCC has contractors who can do that for a
reduced and set rate. But mainly, our job is
to provide education about the, program,
and be a' help desk. We don't sell the
equipment, and we don't roll out to peo-
ple's houses," Viera said.
According to the National
Telecommunications and Information
Administration (NIA) as of June 12, all
full-power television stations stopped
broadcasting in analog and switched to
100 percent digital broadcasting due to a

AP discusses raising water, sewer rates


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK Tom
Gustafson, financial and
management circuit rider for
the Florida Rural Water
Association, spoke to the
city council at its regular
meeting Tuesday night on
the issue of raising water
rates for private citizens and
businesses.
Typically a municipality's
water department earns
money for a city, but that is
not the case in Avon Park,
where water rates have not
been updated in years.
In fact, Gustafson said,
the water and waste water
rates are currently inade-
quate to meet expenditures.
The city needs a minimum
increase of 30 percent and
an additional increase of


12.5 percent in water rev-
enues to fully fund infra-
structure rehabilitation and a
minimum 35 percent
increase with an additional
, 12.5 percent increase in
sewer rates to full fund
that infrastructure rehabili-
tation.
He urged the city do this
immediately to reverse
enterprise fund losses.
Gustafson said this
meant average water and
sewer customers would
actually see slightly
reduced bills, while large
volume customers would
see an increase, and some
of those would see an
increase of more than 30
percent.
The object he said,
would be to put the burden
on large volume customers.
For example, a residen-

Sebring man charged with

stealing more than $50K

from brother's company


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING Years after
a family reconciliation that
resulted in him being hired
at the family business, John
Vickers has drawn the inter-
est of the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office.
Vickers, 49, of Sebring,
who was forced out as co-
owner of the Vickers Sales
Corporation in 1995, has
been arrested for stealing
more than $50,000 from the
company" in which
his brother is now
the sole owner.
He was arrested
for fraud and theft,
both first degree
felonies, and imper-
sonating the busi-
ness without con- Vic
sent. '
In records obtained
through the investigation by
the HCSO, it was revealed
that Vickers was bought out
in 1995 "due to in fight-
ing."
"He was taken back as a
sales associate for the
Northern Florida sales dis-
trict sometime during the
year 2000 after the family
reconciled," HCSO Det.
Roger St. Laurent wrote in
the arrest report.
Then in mid-2008,
Vickers was asked to bid on
a job with the University of
Illinois, which was in need
of heating and cooling com-
ponents and meters for an
experiment.
Part of the deal was that
Vickers would get 50 per-
cent of the profit from the
job, the report said.
Vickers handled all
paperwork to put a bid on
the university job, includ-
ing signing contracts and
giving financial informa-
tion to the university for
payment.
The report states he told


The board of supervisors
of Sun 'N Lake have had
everything their way since we
lived here in 1996 and before
that. Now they are'using our
homeowners assessment
moneys to sue the county.
We homeowners want one
vote for one acre. This is the
correct way to vote. We hope
and pray that the county
wins.

I think the' dramatic
increase in auto registration
fees is a totally unfair way for
the state to raise money.
Instead of raising taxes, I say
cut the budget. I've always
been taught by my parents


his brother that the compa-
ny had lost the bid.
While seeing the sale
through, Vickers allegedly?
gave the correct company'
name and federal employer
identification number, but"
for the business address and'
payment information he
provided his home address
and personal bank account.
"Records obtained con-
firm that the suspect did
receive payments jn the
amount'of $170,635.20, in
the form of two
checks from the uni-
versity," St. Laurent
wrote.
The parts required
to complete the job
cost just under
$60,000, leaving
kers Vickers with
$110,000 profit.
"Of that amount the vic-
tim was to receive 50 per-
cent for a total theft aind
scheme to defraud amount-
of $55,319.99," St. Laurent-
wrote.
During the sale Vickers;
filed with the state of
Florida for a corporation in
the name of Vickers Sales
Co., but no FEI number was
assigned to what the report
called a "fictitious compa-
ny."
It is also noted in the
report that Vickers filed for
the corporation on the same
day the university issued
the first check, valued at-
just more than $85,000.
The university, is a sec-
ondary victim, the report
states, because "if any inci-
dence's would have
occurred requiring liability
insurance the damages
would not have been cov-
ered."
Vickers was booked into
the Highlands County Jail
Sunday morning.
He posted $31,000 bond
within two hours.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Jobs should be main focus


of all budget discussions


It's budget season. That
time of the year when gov-
ernment officials take a
look at how they are spending
the money put into their trust
by the taxpayers.
Unfortunately, this is an especially tight
year with revenues down everywhere.
But where to cut? Do we cut out new roads?
Should we trim social services? What are the
"core services" that are a must have in each
Highlands County community?
These are questions each budget official
must face. But if one thing is clear in this
unusually tough season, it is the need for jobs.
Jobs will be the biggest single issue as the
local economy continues to slide with the rest
of the country into a deeper recession.
Unemployment figures locally, as well as
statewide, are hitting highs not witnessed in a,
generation. Florida as a whole is now into the
double digits, and our county is not far behind.
One out of every 10 people is currently unem-
ployed in our state.
With these facts in mind, it just makes com-
mon sense that a majority of our effort this
budget season has to be aimed at creating jobs,
not cutting them.
Unfortunately, several of the budgeting
decisions around the county may leave jobs on
the cutting floor, and that is not a good thing in
this economy for anyone.
Avon Park recently circulated an e-mail that
.recommended cutting the fire and police
departments out of the budget.
The county's library system is cutting at
least three positions, and the county is looking
at losing an estimated $9 million out of its


Clearing confusion between

This letter is being sent to clear up
any confusion the similar names of two
local organizations might be causing.
The 50+ Singles Connection has been
in existence since August 2006, while
the club called 55 Plus Singles Club
was started approximately one month
ago and I know very little about their
activities.
The 50+ Singles Connection is an

single adults may enjoy doing in a

they may be uncomfortable dining or

We meet at Beef O'Brady's in

Soul Blues concert at
APYA was awesome
Editor:
Awesome. Impressive. Inspiring.
These were some of the comments I
heard after the dynamic performance of
the drum ensemble "Soul Blues" on
June 9. I was a member of the audi-
ence who stood up and cheered for an
encore at Avon Park Youth Academy
while attending the concert that marked
the finale of their drumming program.
For three years now, Pete Zeegers,
director of APYA, and Fred Leayitt of
the Primal Connection have produced a
12-week special program to introduce
hand drumming to those boys at the
academy who expressed an interest in
learning the drum.
So successful has this program
become that one boy from Orlando,
who was released three weeks before
the concert date, promised to return and
play in the concert. And he did. Never
in the history of this institution has a
youth voluntarily returned. Pete
Zeegers lost his bet.
I asked Travis what impelled him to
return to an institution that might not
hold the happiest of memories for him.
His reply "I gave my word that I
would come back for the concert. Yes,
it was a little uncomfortable, but I dealt
with it; I always keep my word." This
pride in keeping his word is new
behavior that cost Pete Zeegers and the
rest of the boys in the ensemble their
bet.
When I asked for his evaluation of


overall budget, which will surely lead to job
cuts.
We at the News-Sun are not against taking a
hard look at the necessity and pay scale for
every government official and discussing a
cut, but we firmly believe that we as a commu-
nity must look at creating jobs as our overall
goal right now.
We are on a cusp in Highlands County
where we are changing the type of work that is
available, and there is no better way to spend
some of our budget money than to make it
attractive for companies to come to central
Florida and bring jobs with them.
We have the infrastructure, and the sun-
shine, to attract new business. We are centrally
located less than an two hours from everything
under the sun. (That's not even a daily com-
mute to work for a lot of folks in the bigger
cities.)
And we have the available work force.
The slide in the construction business was a
large hit to our area, but now is the time to
look at'diversifying our jobs portfolio, so to
speak. I
With the economy softened as it is, many
businesses are looking for incentives to keep
Them going.
Why not forego the short-term projects for
now and make long-term job creation one ,of
the priorities of this budgeting season?
It is a known fact that industry brings roof
tops, and roof tops bring taxes.
And retail sales.
And real estate purchases.
And restaurants.
And grocery stores.
And home sales.
And new bank clients.
And the list goes on.

TODAY'S LETTERS


the drum program, Travis replied, It
definitely helped. It is a good way to
stay out of trouble, to stay focused and
positive. It is a good atmosphere. It's a
positive program and helps kids. They
should keep doing it."
The "Soul Blues" ensemble played
traditional rhythms from Africa, Brazil,
the Caribbean, and Mid-East, and fin-
ished with their-own composition,
"Heart of the Blues",, a rousing, poly-
rhythmic tribute to themselves. These
youths from different sections of
Central Florida, from diverse back-
grounds, and wide-ranging abilities
came together to form a cohesive, sup-
portive unit and performed a powerful
concert.
Afterwards I spoke to Salmedio, a
large, powerfully built young man, who
aptly chose to play the djun-djun the
largest, loudest, and most dominant of
the drums. I asked him why he joined
the group, and he said that he really
liked the Primal Connection ensemble's
concert, which was given at APYA to
introduce the boys to percussion
music.He said he had to check first
with his "home boys" before he com-
mitted to joining, and he was glad that
he joined.
"And what did you learn from the
group?" I asked.
"Well, it takes away a headache," he
replied. "Also," he added, "I didn't like
a lot of the guys at first, .but now I tol-
erate them."
I think he learned even more than
that. Obviously, he is a very strong per-
sonality. Now he has learned to express
that dominance in a socially accepted,
positive manner. And in doing so, he is
learning to accept and appreciate the
contributions of others'.
I also spoke to Chris, who was a nat-
ural on the bongos. His hands moved
so fast they were a blur over his drums.
When I asked him if he had played
hand drums before, he said "never". I

inquired then why he chose the bongos,
and he told me that when he started
with the group he thought he'd like to
play the Dumbek. But when he heard
Fred play the bongos at a practice ses-
sion, he knew that was what he wanted.
He wanted to learn to play just like
him. And after only 12 practice ses-
sions, he is almost there. Watch out
Fred!
In response to my inquiry of what he
learned from being in the group, he
expressed two interesting observations.
He emphasized the concept of team-
work; the group could go nowhere
unless there was cooperation and com-
promise among the members. And, he
said, he learned to listen to the ideas of
the other band members because some
of their suggestions were as good or
maybe even better than his.
Leslie Zeegers, who was standing
beside me also calling for an encore,
mentioned that she teaches a special
class at the academy for those boys
who have difficulty being placed in a
regular classroom. She told me that
during and after their experience with
group drumming, she noticed a marked
improvement in cooperation and ability
to focus among those boys who were in
the drum group. She theorized that
their success in learning the drum so
quickly gave them the self-confidence
to believe that they might achieve simi-
lar success in the classroom.
When Fred works with each new
group, he involves the members of that
group in all aspects of their perform-
ance. He elicits their suggestions for
tempo, voicing, arrangements, adapta-
tions. Each group chooses its own
name and composes its own unique
composition for the finale. Their whole
performance is their own creation, and
the immense pride of their accomplish-
ment shone through.

Four arrested for shoplifting spree


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING A group of
Polk County women -saw
more of Highlands County
than they were hoping
Thursday after being arrested
following an alleged shoplift-
ing spree and a chase through
The Bluffs condominiums
complex.
According to a Highlands
County Sheriff's Office
-report Angelina Lynn Cook,
29, of Bartow; Kiela Tanika
Crews, 23, of Plant City;
Odia Venessa McDonald, 32,
of Lakeland; and Tara Lenea
Preaster 31, of Lakeland
teamed up to steal more than
$2,000 worth of men's
women's and children's
clothing from Marshall's and
an additional $795.14 worth
of clothes from JC Penny, but
only made it as far as the
Kegel Bowling Center.
Dep. James Green saw the
car as he was driving south
pn U.S. 27, said Sgt. Sean
Casey. A be-on-the-lookout


was put out for the vehicle, a
blue Cadillac, to which
Green responded when he
saw them.
"As he passed the vehicle
they got this look like 'OK,"'
Casey said. "The car acceler-
ated pretty quickly."
Green made a U-turn and
followed ihe women as they
pulled into the Kegel
Bowling Center parking lot.
Their car was parked behind
'a bus in an apparent attempt
to hide it from the deputy.
t'One started walking like
she was walking into the
bowling alley," Casey said.
Two others followed her
while one suspect stayed in
the car.
"He called the three back
to the car and they started to
comply," Casey said. "Then
they went around the side of
the bus and that's when they
started to run."
All four women reportedly
climbed the fence into The
Bluffs complex, where they


managed to elude capture for
a few minutes.
Dep. Christopher Gunter
and his K-9 partner Wyatt, a
bloodhound, were called in to
help with the search. The
women were soon found hid-
ing in some brush.
According to the report,
their car was loaded with
shopping bags full of clothes
and there were also four tin
snips, used to cut the theft-
prevention devices off
clothes, in the car.
All four women were
charged with felony retail
theft, felony possession of a
shoplifting control device
countermeasure, resisting an
officer without violence and
trespassing.
Each woman had her bond
set at $3,000.
Crews and McDonald
managed to make their
$3,000 bond, while Preaster
and Cook were still in the
Highlands County Jail.

AP budget

draws a

big crowd
Continued from page 1A
Hiring a director would cost
each of the districts the
Airport, the Southside, and
Main Street $21,275.
That means, Wright said,
just the salary for the director
would eat up nearly half of the
Southside CRA budget, over a
quarter of the Airport's CRA
budget, and 11 percent of the
Main Street CRA budget.
The biggest drawback to
doing away with the CRA dis-
tricts is the loss of Tax
Increment Funding dollars -
that is tax money that returns
directly to the community from
which it is raised for the pur-
pose of redevelopment.
Wright requested that the
city approach the Highlands
County Board of County
Commissioners to see if TIF
dollars could still be allocated
to the city's three CRA districts
without a CRA being in place.
Currently the city receives
about $230,000 from the coun-
ty.
Council members Brenda
Gray and AlJoe Hinson were
opposed to doing away with
the CRA altogether, both
expressing concerns that the
Southside would once again be
ignored by the city.
Gray wanted to know who
would ensure the funding
would, be spent where it
should.
"The city council," Wright
said forcefully. "If we're not
doing our jobs, throw us out."
When Gray asked again,
Wright said, "Every meeting
we should have a crowd turn
out like this, not-just because
George sent out a list that gets
people all stirred up.
"That is the answer to an
effective city government; to
have active citizen participa-
tion. If we have meetings
where only three or four people
show up, and it's the same
three or four people, then no,
we're not going to get things
done."

Public safety
Probably the most important
reason for the large turnout was
Hall's suggestion that the city
do a cost/benefit analysis on
the police and fire departments,
with a view to.possibly turning
over both agencies to the coun-
ty.
With its diminished tax base,
- the audience was told by more,
than one council member, the
city did not .raise enough
money, even including the fire
assessment, to cover the costs
of public safety personnel..
The council agreed that
because the county primarily
depends on volunteer fire
crews, it was" unrealistic to do
away with the city's profes-
sional fire department.
But they made it clear they
expected to see savings in
how the department ordered
new equipment, for example
and perhaps by doing away
with the full-time secretarial
position.
The issue of the police
department being consolidated
into the sheriff's office was not
rejected out-of-hand, despite
the audience's clear support for

Jack Soule, of the South Florida Police Benevolent Association, came into town Saturday to
talk. to Avon Park police officers worried the city is considering closing down the depart-
ment and bringing in the sheriff's office. Some police officers went door to door passing
out fliers to the public. Those fliers were criticized at the city council's Tuesday night meet-
ing as being inflammatory and misleading.'

CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Walter McLendon was hon-
ored by Police Chief
Matthew Doughney during
the Avon Park city council's
regular meeting Tuesday
night. McLendon retired in
May after 25 years service
as an emergency communi-
cator with the city, rising to
become supervisor of the
communications center.
Doughney praised his dedi-
cation, skill and ability.

law enforcement to remain
local.
Wright wanted to know if
there was a set of objective cri-
teria by which a department
may judged, pointing out that
kind of information is useful to
know.
"We don't need to overstaff,
but we do need to meet critical
needs," he said.
Wright charged the city
manager ,and Police Chief
Matthew Doughney with find-
ing answers.,
"If we have to cut, it is not
our task to go down a list of
employees. Our charge is to the
city manager. Micro-managing
is what messed up the city. I
would like, to hear from Chief
Doughney about staffing
needs. We can't decide who
goes and who stays, that's the
chief's job," Wright said. "Can
we keep a police department,
can we fund it properly? That
answer must come from the
chief.
"We know we'rd going to
have a shortfall, we don't know
how much."
He added the unions would
be critical in dealing with the
problem.
Robert Childress, of the


Southwest Florida Police
Benevolent Association, told
the council his union was
"willing to it down and dis-
cuss how to help the city sur-
vive, willing to discuss cuts."
Doughney pointed out that
although the department need-
ed 10 new patrol cars, he had
budgeted for only six.
He also told the council that
75 percent of the way through
the fiscal year, the force had
used only 36 percent of its fuel
budget.
Mayor Sharon Schuler
warned citizens that if public
safety is where the city choos-
es to spend its money, then
something else will have to be
cut..
"We have to balance the
budget," she said, "or the state
takes over."
Wright moved that the city
approach the sheriff for a
cost/benefit analysis. The
motion passed by a 3-2 vote
with Gray and Hinson voting
against.

Recreation Dept.,
Code Enforcement,
public utilities and
retirements
There was less emotion and
opposition over Hall's sugges-
tion to do away with the city's
recreation department. Instead,
non-profit organizations, some
faith-based, could take over its
functions. A summer program
could be run by college interns,
Hall said.
"We've got to get creative,"
he added.
Hall also met little opposi-
tion to his suggestion of doing
away with the special magis-
trate, closing down code
enforcement, and handing its .
duties on to the police depart-
ment.
Nor did anyone offer objec-
tion when Hall suggested those
individuals eligible for retire-
ment do so now to make room
for younger individuals com-
ing up. It would also be an
opportunity to cut out redun-
dant or useless positions.
Doug Barnard, a member of
the CRA's Southside Advisory
Board, took the podium to ask
why the former Public Utilities.
Coordinator, who, made
$52,000 a year, had been
replaced by a consultant paid
$2,500 a, week.
The council did not have an
opportunity to address the


issue of the city's civic center
- which Chief Doughney
referred to as white elephant,
and Hall has recommended
either selling or. leasing long
term or setting up an
Airport Authority and separat-
ing it from the city budget.
The idea of having.the city's
project manager and the
new CRA director, should that
post come into being be
paid a lower salary and given a
commission from the grants
she or he wins for the city, was
mentioned in passing. ,
'Bringing the discussion
back to its essential core -
Avon Park's lack of revenue -
Schuler addressed the issue of
non-profit property ownership.
"We are blessed," she said,
"to have lots of churches, but
all of that property doesn't pay
taxes. Our tax base is very
small."
The public, said Schuler, is
strongly encouraged to let its
feelings known. In particular,
city council members are look-
ing for creative ideas to save
money.
Citizens are urged to attend
the first budget hearing taking
place at 8 a.m. on Saturday,
July 18 in council chambers.

"We basically say we did
well, and we did," she said.
"I know there are a lot that
already donated directly to
the Children Services
Foundation."
For the $10 participation
fee, lunch was provided for
the 200 riders, but nearly
all of it was donated.
The Wild Turkey Tavern,
Duffers Sports Grille,
Woody's BBQ, Sonny's


Barbecue and the Blue
Crab all helped by supply-
ing food.
"Our. community pulled
together on this, especially
the donations as far as
food," Tretter said.
An estimated 20 volun-
teers spent their time at the
stops across the county and
cooking the food, all con-
tributing to a smooth event.
"There's a lot of people
to thank in making the run
successful," Tretter said.

The new rates means that bill would become
$43.49.
In the same way, a low-end commercial
user's bill currently runs $61.62. That would
change to $63.58.
On the other hand, a 12,000-gallon-a-

$128.07. Under the new rates that user would
pay $147.71.

As the discussion developed,' however, it
became clear the topic was moreicomplicated
than simply agreeing, to raise water rates..
Issues of fairness, the impact of the state's
water shortage, and mandates from the state
made making a decision without more consid-
eration unwise the council agreed.
In addition, the night's heavy agenda did
not allow for an appropriate conversation.
The issue will, therefore, be a topic of dis-
cussion during the council's special meeting
on July 13.

FWC marks 10th S(


anniversary ed.bal
ed~balT=


MyFWC.com
Ten years ago, Florida cre-
ated a new conservation
agency to take a 21st-century
approach to managing the
state's wildlife and freshwa-
ter and marine resources.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) took on-
that challenge July 1, 1999.
The FWC won't observe
the anniversary with any
external festivities, but its
leaders and employees are
taking time to reflect on
changes the agency has gond
through during its first
decade of existence.
Since 2002, the agency has
worked to update its structure
and operations, and
Executive Director Kei
Haddad has directed FWd
leaders to motivate and. train
employees to set new stani
dards for efficiency, effect
tiveness' and customer servj
ice.
"Restructuring th9
agency's components helped
coordinate and hone the.
FWC's operations," Haddad
said. "Law enforcement offii
"cers who previously special"
ized' in marine patrols of
inland patrols cross-trained
to work in both environ-
ments. Meanwhile, all the,
agency's research on wildlife
and marine and aquatic life,
came together at the FWC's
Fish and Wildlife Research
Institute."'
Other functions, such as
licensing and permitting,
modernized their equipment
and procedures to be more
user-friendly. License and


.permit sales went online.
The FWC grew more dili-
gent in encouraging stake-
holder and public participa-
tion in the agency's deci-
sions. It improved public
access to decision makers.
"The FWC reflects a bold,
new approach to .conserva-
tion, applying renewed ener-
gy to search for solutions to
challenging issues," FWC
Chairman Rodney Barreto
said. "One of the keys to suc-
cess has been promoting a
sense of stewardship among
Florida's residents."
The agency defined the
challenges ahead in a 2008
report titled "Wildlife 2060:
What's at stake for Florida?"
The FWC identified
landowner incentives as crit-
ical to preserving Florida's
rich array of wildlife and
meeting recovery goals for
many species.
It formed.new partnerships
with landowners and other
private and governmental
organizations to assist in
habitat management, recov-
ery and enhancement pro-
grams.
In 2004-05, Florida's
Wildlife Legacy Initiative
formed- a broad network of
partners to create a compre-
hensive strategy for wildlife
and natural-area conserva-
tion.
"The FWC has completed
new management plans to
ensure red-cockaded wood-
peckers, manatees, bald
eagles and gopher tortoises
receive adequate attention,"
Barreto said. "We were able

Tournament is now one for
the history books, and the
Sebring All-Stars move on
to the state tournament with
a 7-1 late-game rally over
Okeechobee Monday night.
The pitching of
Okeechobee's Baron Stuart
held the Sebring team at bay
for four straight innings, and
then his pitch count ran out,
giving Sebring the opening
they needed to take the win.
Down 1-0 with one out in

Sebring rally for

a solid hit

followed up
by Gabe Gomez, whose
quick bat created a fumble
and an error, putting him on
base.
Another 'Chobee error
put Trey Frazier on first, and
then the big blue rally
picked up some steam.
Sebring's Seth Cannady
put the hurt on a pitch, plac-
ing it about mid'-way up the
center field chain-link fence,'
which drove in three runs..

game, put a hot one out in

days off, then it's practice
time to get ready for the trip

Clinics for 35,537 partici-

vation measures for numer-
ous species that require
intense management.
The FWC's Youth Hunter
Education Challenge, started
in 2008, is the most compre-
hensive youth hunting pro-
gram in North America.
It involves advanced train-
ing for 12- tol8-year-olds
who have completed a hunter
safety course.
In addition, the Youth
Hunting Program of Florida
treated 474 youths and par-
ents to 32 sponsored hunts
last year.
The National Archery in
the Schools Program has
introduced 146,783 kids to
archery and to the FWC since
2005,, with help from the
Department of Education.
Florida's conservation law
enforcement officers find
their jobs more demanding
and complex than ever.
Besides routine duties, the
Division of Law
Enforcement frequently
mobilizes disaster response
and domestic, security mis-
sions.
The division recently
earned certification from the
Commission for Florida Law
Enforcement Accreditation.
That accomplishment
required FWC officers to
measure up to the highest
standards in their profession.
During the past 10 years,
Florida has blossomed into
the No. I tourism destination
for wildlife viewers, and the


FWC's Office of Recreation
Services has assisted more
than 50 communities in har-
nessing the industry's eco-
nomic potential. In addition,
the agency has partnered with
thousands of volunteers and
created the Great Florida
Birding Trail, with 489 bird-
watching sites that have
attracted visitors from all
over the world.
Scientific research guides
FWC decisions. The agency's
Fish and Wildlife Research
,Institute released more than 4
million red drum into Tampa
Bay between 2000 and 2004
in a pilot program to study
the effects of stocking hatch-
ery-raised fish into the wild.
The institute and the
FWC's support foundation -
the Wildlife Foundation of
Florida are three years into
exploring a vision for a net-
work of saltwater fish hatch-
eries in Florida and, with
partner support, mapping out
the long-term health of the
state's sport fisheries.
More than 550 published
works over the past 10 years
document the findings of
institute staff.
Its research regarding red'
tide earned worldwide admi-
ration from the scientific
community.
The foundation has provid-
-ed $6.225 million for nearly
200 FWC projects since
2005.
It also provides emergency
funding for the FWC to
respond swiftly to unforeseen
issues without diverting
resources from other high-
priority projects.
"When I look at all that's
happened at the FWC over
the past 10 years, I'm amazed
at how all these parts work
together," Barreto said. "And
it happens in a team spirit
that says, 'We have to be the
best,' and we are."

The Scope of Oriental Medicine
Oriental medicine includes acupuncture, Chinese herbology, dietary
therapy,, xcise and bodywork based on traditional Oriental medicine
princip'I s. '
This system of health care is used extensively by one-quarter of the
worlq. -pppulation residing in Asia, and is rapidly growing in popularity
in the.West.
Oriental medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the bio-
chemical model of Western medicine.


Acupuncture
'Acupuncture is the 5000 year old Chinese system of natural
b healing. Fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points of
' the body to restore a balanced flow of energy.
Through acupuncture, Qi (energy) is allowed to move
freely throughout the body, reestablishing balance. This bal-
ance helps the body achieve higher levels of health and
'' well-being.
Chinese Herbs
" For as long as people and plants have coexisted, herbal med-
icine has been around in some shape or form. It has been
found to very helpful in treating conditions such as allergies,
ADD and ADHD, menopausal syndrome. chronic pain and
many, many other ailments.

Sebring
Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamberlin
SEBRING In the recre-
ation club you will find many
ways in which to rest. The
best form of rest for most of
us would be card games. No
one that I know of anyway,
since Robert Millard has gone
north, uses our reading room.
A lot of our members have
been strangers at our doors
this summer. If you have not
seen a club member for some
time, check on them to make
sure their health is all right.
They are missed by many of
us. A person never knows
unless we tell them about
missing them.
Judy and Gary Holloway
had a June wedding in 1963
on June 15. To save you from
the math, that was 46 years
ago.
It is always such a pleasure
to be around the nice people
that make shuffleboard what it
is in Sebring. Sue Kelly, not
finding enough to play
pinochle this summer, is,
going north looking for a
game. Ernie will keep the
home fires going and maybe
slow down a bit. Bill Kaleita
is now up and about after his
knee surgery and the reason
we have not seen them at
shuffleboard is Joyce has had
the shingles. Both have had a
string of bad health. They are
getting ready for a vacation in
Virginia with'Bill looking for-
ward to the. fishing. Joe
LaCotti fell from a ladder and
broke his arm in two places.
Betty Rizor gave in to her feet
tonight and will not shuffle
until they are better.
Saturday evening at pin
shuffle finds Marilyn Wile
celebrating her birthday June
13. Sue Kelly has this day
also.
Ping-pong needs you, more
this summer than any time
before. Ladies are more than
welcome at the tables.
Can you picture anyone


that would play bingo when
they could shuffle? Choosing
an air-conditioned room over
the good outdoors.
Line dancing is Wednesday
from 6:30-8 p.m. Numbers are
down for vacation time and
the heat has arrived in
Sebring. Come and see what
goes on at the club at line
dancing.
Come see us at 333
Pomegranate Ave. (behind
Sebring Police Station).
Town and Country
Mobile Home Park
By Janet Day

SEBRING Welcome to
the hot, humid days of sum-
mer. Whew, I'd forgotten how
heated our temps get in June.
Our families in New York
State are wondering if sum-
mer is really coming so guess
we mortals just never find the
ideal weather. However, our
plants and lawns welcome the
summer rains and we can
appreciate how lush every-
thing looks. Several in the
park have or are in the process
of redoing their lawns and
that new grass really grows.
Looks really nice.
We at Town and Country
are delighted to welcome new
park managers Tim and Debra
Strickland to the area. They
attended- last Monday's social
hour and have met many
around the park. Tim is actu-
ally native to Sebrihg, having
graduated from Sebring High.
School a few years back.
Welcome home, Tim. Debbie
hails from Texas, was raised
in a military family .and is
retired military herself. She
deserves our admiration and
respect having lost two sons
serving their country in the
Iraq war and a third son is still
serving there. Our prayers are
surely with all her family for
his safety and for all service
families. Tim and Debra come
with 20 years experience as,
property managers in RV and
mobile home communities.
We welcome them and share


their desire to be here and
help us continue to be the
truly great park we residents
appreciate.
We are very happy to have
Marthe and Wally Fortin back
south for a spell. Both appear
joyous to be south; especially
since their daughter reminds
them of the cool temps back
in Canada.
Our own Alan and Linda
Grossman once again are star-
ring in the Highlands Little
Theater play, "Shakespeare in
Hollywood." Enjoyed them
both, especially Linda as
Louella Parsons. A natural.
Several residents will be
celebrating July birthdays to
include: Doug Schirra, Ron
Sowers, Stu MacCracken,
Anna McKeen, Becky Sims,
Wallace Fortin, Gene Clark,
Michelle Johns, Hal Hammel,
Jim Dimond, Marge Mace,
Natalie Checkley and Bob
Hull.
We will be keeping Evelyn
Clark in our prayers as she has
some surgery coming up.
Also, coming up July 4,
park residents will be sharing
a 55th anniversary party at
noon to honor Shirley and
Dwayne Lowe.
Circumstances prevented
their 50th celebration so they
are making up for it now. The
Lowes are among our earliest
park residents and can share
some great stories of former
years. They migrated from
Illinois and have one daughter
Deanne of West Palm Beach
and two granddaughters,
Tiffany and Sarah. Our hearti-
est congratulations to both on
this milestone.
Chuck and I have been vis-
iting local mobile home parks
to assist the Highlands
County Red Cross in compil-
ing disaster figures should a
major disaster occur in this
county. We are delighted
Town and Country MHP will
be a part of this needed net-
work. Training sessions are
available through the local
Red Cross office and we hope
to reach more parks later in


the year. Needless to say, our
sincere prayer is for no major
storms; however, we all need
to be prepared. Do you have
your hurricane kit prepared
and a weather radio available?
tropical
Harbor
By Barbara Kelleher
LAKE PLACID June 14
we had a wonderful turnout
for the Military Soup and
Sandwich. We had close to 90
attend for the delicious home-
made soups and a pulled
chicken Ohio sandwich. Since
it was Flag Day, we had Jim
Witten tell a story about the
flag and Regina Garner recite
a poem about the American
flag. Following the meal, we
had Donna Frye, our pianist,
play some well-known patri-
otic songs for all to sing.
Monday morning our coed
coffee makers were Lena and
John Chapman who spoiled us
once again by serving a deli-
cious variety of doughnuts in
honor of John's birthday,
which is also his daughter,
Martha Child's birthday.
Martha and her husband
Kevin are residents of the
park as well.
Our emcee was Luetta
Kiger, who welcomed every-
one and told a cute little joke
before turning the microphone
over to park manager George
Susco. George told the resi-
dents that he was not sure
when Dale Hogue's memorial
will be but he will see that it is
posted for all to see. He has
heard that it will be 'at the
American Legion in Avon
Park but no date or time has
been decided as yet.
George went on to say that
the irrigation system will be
down near the end of the
week. He reminded all that
watering the lawns should be
done only on your designated,
day. We have had plenty of
rain and too much watering
can ruin the grass by causing a
fungus.
We were happy to see Rita


and Andy Anderson back.
They drove to Illinois and
Indiana and saw their twin
daughter and their son. It also
gave them the opportunity to
see six grandchildren along
with 13 great-grandchildren.
While they were there, Andy
attended his class reunion, it
was a 50th reunion for many
as well. Many of these stu-
dents were young men and
women Andy had taught after
becoming a teacher and sports
coach. It was Andy's 67th
reunion year. He and Rita had
a grand-time.
Also glad to see Arlene and
Bob Clouston back, they were
in Lakeland to be with their
son Keith who underwent
back surgery. Bob told the
residents how much they
appreciated all the prayers
and get well sheet that all the
residents signed to let Keith
know we were thinking about
him.
Joan Peterson introduced
her grandson Josiah, who is
here visiting with his grand-
mother for a few weeks. He
lives in Cape Coral. Joan also
announced that Darryl Taylor,
who is a phlebotomist, is
invited to our Monday meet-
ing the week of June 29.
-Carol Noel told the group
that Betty Krebs is home from
the hospital. Alice Plate's sis-
ter, Marilyn Kinner, passed
away. Jacel Seay, daughter of
Andy and Rita Anderson, had
surgery, which they did not
know about until they
returned home to Florida.
Please keep them in your
thoughts and prayers.
Luetta asked Laura Bailie
to play the piano for the resi-
dents 'who are celebrating
their birthday this week. We
had John Chapman and Joan
Peterson present to sing
Happy Birthday to. She then
read the names of couples cel-
ebrating their anniversary. We
all sang Happy Anniversary to
Arlene and Bob Clouston,
since they were with their son
Keith last week to help him
following his back surgery.


Bill Butts told the residents
that they will continue serving
the pancake breakfast the first
Saturday of the month as long
as they have the participation
of 40-50 attend. He went on to
say that over the past year
they have served more than
700 breakfasts. Marilyn
Cromer told the residents that
although the last carry-in din-
ner was canceled due to lack
of a committee, the Special
Events group is planning a
wonderful Saturday, Fourth of
July party, beginning with the
pancake breakfast. Next we
will have the golf cart deco-
rated parade. The dinner will
be baked chicken with every-
one bringing a dish to pass.
We can all watch the fire-
works from the clubhouse
window, followed by watch-
ing the Boston Pops TV show
on our wide screen and top
this off with ice cream.
Tuesday, June 16 we had 12
attend the Ladies Coffee. Our
emcee was Marilyn Cromer;
she also made the coffee and
served it with cake. She told
the ladies about the Fourth of
July activities that are to take
place that Saturday. Carol
Noel told the ladies that Betty
Krebs and Evelyn Weaver are
in the hospital. Keith
Clouston is home following
his back surgery. Bill Garner
is not well. There is also a
sheet for Jacci Seay, daughter
of Andy and Rita Anderson
who has recently been operat-
ed on. Please keep them in
your prayers for a speedy
recovery. Regina Garner told
the ladies about the decorated
golf carts that will be in the
Fourth of July parade. The
meeting adjourned early in
order for the women to attend
the Ladies Day Out luncheon
at the Blue Crab. The host-
esses for this affair were Fran
Buero, Shirley Landon and
Dotti Morra. They had 32
ladies sign up for the lunch-
eon which began at 11 a.m.
The Mustangs went to
Jaxson's Restaurant in Lake
Placid and they had 15 attend.

with each arm straight out to
her side at shoulder height. She
suggested members begin with
two 12-ounce cans of soda, then
30-ounce jars of mayonnaise

NATURAL GAS PRICES CONTINUE TO DROP

FOR LOCAL RESIDENCES AND BUSINESSES
For the fourth month in a row, Sebring Gas System, Inc. has
reduced the commodity cost of natural gas that will be passed
along to its customers in Sebring.
Effective with the bills rendered for gas usage in April 2009,
Sebring Gas customers will- see a rate reduction for the commodity
cost of about 12% from the previous month.
Since the month of .December 2008, the commodity of natural gas
has dropped over 39%. Sebring Gas makes no profit on the price of
the commodity and the reductions are passed straight to its cus-
tomers.
Jerry Melendy, General Manager of Sebring Gas System, Inc. says
that the reduction in the price of natural gas is due mostly to the
increase in inventories. Natural gas is an all American product,
coming from gas wells located in and around the Gulf of Mexico,
from Florida to Texas.
In addition to the lower natural gas prices to its customers,
Sebring Gas also offers cash incentives to all new and existing nat-
ural gas customers of Sebring Gas. The incentives are for the home-
owner to use more natural gas. The incentives are as follows:
RESIDENTIAL APPLIANCE REPLACEMENT RESIDENTIAL APPLIANCE REPLACEMENT
(REPLACE ELECTRIC WITH GAS) (REPLACE OLD GAS WITH NEW GAS)
Cash Allowance Cash Allowance
Gas storage tank water heating... $525 Gas storage tank water heating... $350
Gas tankless water heating....... $525 Gas tankless water heating....... $450

Cash Allowance

Gas cooking ................... $100
Gas clothes drying .............. $100
The cash incentives have been approved by the Florida Public
Service Commission. The commission realizes that the use of natural
gas is the best use of our natural resources in Florida. By the
increased use of natural gas, not only will customers save money on
their energy bills, but the need to construct additional power plants
will be lessened.
Sebring Gas is a natural gas utility located in Sebring, with around 40
miles of underground gas pipeline.
