SEBRING - "Further cut operat-
ing and capital budgets or increase
taxes," was part of the final sentence
in a letter from Highlands County
Administrator Michael Wright to the
Commission dated June 30.
According to Wright, this year's
proposed budget for the county is
$8.8 million out of balance, and that
number translates into at least 32 jobs
losses.
Wright stated that his staff recom-


Shortfall translates into at least

32 jobs being trimmed from roster


mended trimming 32 jobs in 2009-10
out of the 403 authorized positions,
reducing the number of employees to
a level lower than the county
employed five years ago.
Wright also stated that he is not
anticipating a "quick economic
recovery" and that county staff
approached the budget by looking


asking "is it something we need to do
or is it something that is nice to do?"
The sheriff's new law enforcement
building is not one of those necessary
items, and Wright did not recommend
line item funding.
He did suggest that staff will be

Light pollution makes it hard to see the night sky, but changes in the way highways are lit has helped with the
problem somewhat.

Light pollution does more than just

make it hard to see the stars at night


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - Unlike owls, cat-
fish, the fox and bats, humans have
never felt comfortable in the dark.
From the earliest camp fires to the
Las Vegas strip, people worked to
light up the night.
Now, however, some are question-
ing whether cities are safer and
individuals healthier in the bright
world that technology has created.
Organizations like the
International Dark-Sky Association
collect data, while city and county
commissions debate ramifications.
Lately, the issue of light pollution
has become a topic of intensifying
interest as the costs of producing
light rise, concern grows about
power plant carbon emissions and
America questions its dependence
on fossil fuels.


A growing number of people are
becoming increasingly worried
about the way artificial light affects
the environment and human metabo-
lism as well, while questions about
whether street lighting actually cur-
tails crime also are being raised.
According to the Web site star-
rynightlights.com, light pollution is
"misdirected or misused light ...
generally resulting from an inappro-
priate application of exterior light-
ing."
Glow, which results from light
that defuses upward or outward, and
glare are the two major problems.
Glow washes out the sky, while
often leaving the ground dark. Glare
can compromise vision, and even
make streets less safe because it is
easy to hide in the dark behind a
bright light.
Anyone who' has looked in the


direction of a flashlight, for exam-
ple, knows the person holding the
flashlight can't be seen.
According to an article by Ron
Chepesiuk in the January 2009 edi-
tion of "Environmental Health
Perspectives," over-illumination is
another problem. "Over-illumination
refers to the use of artificial light
well beyond what is required for a
specific activity," he wrote, "such as
keeping lights on all night in an
empty building."
The National Park Service has
said that 50 percent of the light from
a typical unshielded light is wasted,
shining upward where it is not need-
ed, while good light is shielded in a
manner that directs all the light
where it is needed and wanted.
"We are just now understanding

ings from operations not needed to
balance the budget" for building
improvements for the sheriff's and
public defender's Offices.
Lake Placid's request for a civic
center is also on the cutting block,
but Wright did state there is $600,000
in budgeted, but unused, funding
remaining in the construction
accounts for the Veteran's Building
and the Children's Advocacy Center.

By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@ne'wssun.com
SEBRING - The suspension of
the county's impact fees has not
quite had the impact on new con-
struction that was anticipated.
July 1 was the first day that per-
mits could be pulled from* the
county's building department and
not have a large impact fee associ-
ated with them.

"The turnout has been just

she added.
According to Shackelford, there

some promises, but so far just two
permits were pulled for housing
projects, and one for a commercial
renewal on July 1.
Additionally, a fax from the

.-.' I Rains have helped, but a lot
S1 more needed to end drought


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
Although there has been plenty of rain lately, enough to add 1 bil-
lion gallons to Lake Jackson, the level of the lake is still far below
pre-drought levels, as can be easily seen underneath the City Pier
in Sebring.


Lake Jackson has 1 billion
more gallons of water in it,
but level is still much too low
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com ,
SEBRING - While the recent rain is
good news for the parched state, not yet
enough has fallen in Lake Jackson for the
City Pier Beach to be opened for swim-
ming.
That is because the large dredged'hole
that runs parallel to the shore still poses a
risk for non-swimmers, especially as the
lake's water level fell so dramatically dur-


ing the drought that the shoreline is much
closer to the hole.
Robert Miller, director of Public Works
for the city, said the water level has to rise
to the point where it is over most people's
heads in the immediate area of the dredged
hole. That way people will already be
swimming when they reach it and the hole
won't pose such a hazard.
The concern is non-swimmers wading
through shallow water could suddenly find
themselves dropping in over their heads.
He thinks a depth of six feet should be
safe.

New law allows for Florida-

friendly landscaping


Special to the News-Sun
A new law signed by Gov.
Charlie Crist promotes the
installation of Florida-
friendly landscaping. The
law states that homeowners
associations (HOAs) may
not prohibit a homeowner
from applying Florida-
friendly landscaping to their
property or create any
requirement or limitation in
conflict with state law.
Florida-friendly land-
scaping emphasizes nine
easy-to-accomplish princi-
ples that, when practiced,
can have a significant posi-
tive impact on yards and the
environment.
By following Florida-
Friendly Landscaping prac-
tices, homeowners use a
low-maintenance approach
to landscaping that con-
serves water. Homeowners


also spend less time main-
taining their lawns and more
time enjoying them.
"Because homeowners
can no longer be prohibited
from following Florida-
friendly landscaping prac-
tices, they will have more
freedom to choose the type
of plants and turf that are
right for their property,"
said Sylvia Durell, Florida-
friendly landscaping project
manager.
The law also states that
HOAs may not fine home-
owners for brown lawns
when the homeowner is
abiding by water shortage
rules such as the district's
water shortage orders that
restrict residents to watering
their lawns one day per
week.

HLT Jane Lou Buck scholarship

fund offers hot dogs and free

program on Fourth of July


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - It would not
be the Fourth of July with-
out a patriotic program and
a hot dog, and so it is at
Highlands Little Theatre.
For more than 30 years
the volunteers of Highlands
Little Theatre hage partici-
pated in some sort of patri-
otic program on the Fourth
of July. Since shortly after
the death of the popular
Jane Lou Buck - actress,
director, long-time
Highlands Little Theatre
secretary and retired editor
of the News-Sun (Sebring
News), the Theatre has held
a fund raiser for its "Jane
Lou Buck scholarship
fund." The group has sold
hot dogs and cold beer to
raise money for its academ-
ic support.
This year, the group
reaches into its rich gourmet
past to produce "Dogs
Across America" for its
menu.
Most of the hot dogs
come from the pages of Bon
Appetit magazine and will
include such American
favorites as: .South
Westergom Dog (grilled
poblanos and jack cheese),


Madam Lynda's Chicken
Ranch Texas Dog (barbecue
sauce, longhorn cheddar
'and spicy onions), Helen
Curcio's New York Dog
(spicy mustard and sauer-
kraut), Goldies New Jersey
Dog (chili, Hazardous waste
sauce and dog), Kristen
Taylor's Half-baked Boston
Dog (baked beans and hot
dog), McCollum's Fuzzy-
Carolina Dog (coleslaw,
mustard and onions), Pete
Pollard's Reuben Dog
(sauerkraut, melted swiss
and Russian dressing),
Harriman Dog (jam and
jalapenos), New Orlenean
Log Dog (red beans and
Tabasco sauce), Rose
Marie's Cobb Dog (chopped
iceberg lettuce and toma-
toes, crumbled bacon and
blue cheese dressing), Bill
Farmer Dogwood Dog
(everything in the fridge),
Vanda's Trailer Trash Dog
(melted processed pimento
cheese and crushed potato
chips), Boulay's Buffalo
Dog (featured Mae Lee's
Famous Gold Wing Sauce,
carrot and celery match-
sticks, and blue cheese
dressing), Jim's Favorite
Chicago Dog (onion slice,


tomato slice, cucumber
slices, quarter of a dill pick-
le, hot sauce, hot mustard
-on a poppyseed bun),
Oberhausen's Little Italy
Dog (haute dog, featuring
Hungry Howies Famous
Pizza Sauce, pepperoni on
garlic pizza dough), and
Vanessa's' Surf and Turf
Dog (grilled shrimp, cock-
tail sauce and Haute Dog).
The menu will also
include Goldie Garnish's
famous chili and other dish-
es from the culinary experts
from the Theatre.
Oh, and there will be free
entertainment with Bill
Farmer, a popular actor on
the boards, who also direct-
ed last year's program and
will direct this year's event.
The theme of the show,
set to begin at 10:30 a.m., is
"It's a Wonderful Life."
Lynda Fulcher, co-chair-
man of the event with' Sue
McCollum, expects the
crowd to be "gynormous"
and for the Theatre to make
twice as much as it has ever
made due to the expanded
menu and the fact that the
volunteers will continue to
sell hot dogs until just
before the 9 p.m. fireworks:

important industry, which has
an overall impact estimated at
more than $100 billion annu-
ally."
Of the 24 women already
spotlighted with this honor,
only one has come from

Gunnels at 1(850) 488-3022.


What is going to happen to all
of the people on Medicare and
Medicaid if Obama's crazy health
plan passes? You can plan on the
government cutting back on what
they already have. Old folks will
bite the bullet. If you are over 70
you will be denied by their list of
surgeries. We are very happy with
Medicare now but really fear for
the future. Obama is turning
America into socialized medicine.
What is a disaster is how
Congress or no one reads these
800-page bills. It's a crime.

The conspiracy to pass the
lower emissions climate bill is not
only the Obama/AI Gore fiasco but
don't leave out GE, owner of NBC,
who has Obama in their pocket.
Yesterday I saw on TV that in New
Jersey free fluorescent bulbs
were hung on every door to
replace their porch lights. Did you
know that if you drop and break
one, mercury emission is far
more dangerous than you can
imagine. Where can we find out
who voted yea on the climate bill
last Friday that only passed by
seven votes so that the voters can
decide who they want to vote for
in the coming election?

No. 2, it really makes me mad
that the state has gone back on


our wonderful, wonderful tax col-
lector, Charles Bryan, who has
been savvy enough to figure out a
way for us Highlands County peo-
ple to save a little money from the
state's changes and to try to go
back on what everybody else
seems to have been able to utilize
and renege on it, I guess being
able to pay for the two years in
advance and save us a little
money. Thank God for Charles
Bryan, smart man, and it's too
bad that the state had to conMe
back and try to make him look
bad because he's smart enough
to be able to see where he could
try to help us in Highlands County
a little bit from the state taxation
system.
That's my vent for today.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Free press is necessary if we want to maintain liberty


Saturday we celebrate this wonderful coun-
try's 223rd birthday. We thought it was a
good time to remind everyone what an
important role a free press played in our nation's
creation and continues to play today.


From Ben Franklin's
Pennsylvania Gazette to Thomas
Paine's broadsides to the Wall
Street Journal and the News-Sun,
widespread dissemination of infor-
mation and opportunity for public
debate were, and are, essential in
keeping citizens informed and
involved.
According to www.historic-

Hospice is a
precious resource
Editor:
In tough economic times,
many of us find ourselves
making hard decisions about
our financial situations at
home and in our workplaces.
At Cornerstone Hospice we
are no different. There is the
possibility of cuts to current
Medicare reimbursements.
Congress and the President
are searching for ways to
save and to stimulate the
economy of our country. One
of their focuses is reforming
health care including the hos-
pice Medicare benefit.
More than one-fourth of
Medicare dollars are spent in
the last year of a person's
life. A great deal of money
goes for many unnecessary
and aggressive treatments for
terminally ill patients who
often would rather forgo the
process. A recent study at
Dartmouth indicated that
patients who are treated more
aggressively are placed at a
greater risk of infection and
medical errors ... and they do
not live longer.
Surveys show that the vast
majority of Americans would
prefer not to die in a hospital,
but peacefully at home sur-
rounded by family and loved
ones. They would choose
quality of life over quantity.
If they have not prepared
advance directives specifying
the type of treatment they
would or would not want at
the end of life, then in many
instances everything medical-
ly possible is done to extend
the patient's life.
Hospice could have been
the appropriate choice in
these situations. While pro-
viding relief from the burden
of physical, emotional, and
spiritual pain, Hospice can
save our limited health care
dollars. Often the best care
might not be the most expen-
sive care. A Duke University
study indicated that hospice
care saved $2,300 per patient
at the end of life. When tal-
lied, this amounts to more


Revolutionary War, there were two
dozen newspapers published in the
Colonies; by 1783, 43 papers were
published; and by 1814, 346.
It was while Andrew Jackson was
in office that technological
advances led to the first inexpensive
newspapers, called the "Penny

Hospice focuses on a com-
prehensive plan of care
offered by an interdiscipli-
nary team of professionals
and trained volunteers.
Hospice's greatest accom-
plishments are providing
peace, choices and comfort at
the end of life for not only
the patient but also the family
and loved ones.
One of many letters
received at Cornerstone
Hospice after a death stated,
"You helped see me through
one of the most difficult
times in my life. For that and
the utmost, wonderful care
you gave to my mother, you
will never be forgotten for
your total professionalism
and overwhelming compas-
sion. If only I had known
about your services sooner, I
could have relieved my
mother's pain and added to
her quality of life."
Hospice is a precious
resource and should continue
the mission of providing the
highest quality, end-of-life
care for patients and their
loved ones at the end of life.

Why is Obama
turning back on
Iran?
Editor:
Iran's citizens are risking
their lives in order to gain
freedom. They are'standing
there unarmed, only equipped
with their righteousness, in
the face of snipers firing into
the masses.
The whole world saw and
understood that in recent
weeks, many Iranians citizens
have risked their lives to cre-
ate an opportunity to cut off
the head of the snake, whose
venom feeds Hizbullah,
Hamas and al-Qaeda, and
eliminate from the map of
global threats a highly dan-


By the 1890s the first circulation
figures of one million copies per
issue were recorded. It was during
this time that so-called "Yellow
Journalism" first raised serious
issues regarding sensational con-
tent.
By 1910 newspaper had all the
essential features found in modern
day publications.
Today newspapers feel pressure
from all sides. Talk radio, 24-hour
cable television coverage and the
Internet provide a constant stream
of information. The competition
plus the increased costs of produc-
tion means many papers are cutting
back, or going out of business alto-


gerous regime that feeds ter-
ror worldwide. At first,
Obama said, "The U.S. will
not be interfering so as not to
be accused of organizing the
uprising."
Yet with the passage of
time, it turns out that events
in Iran are not an outside
conspiracy, but rather, a cry
of despair from the hearts of
Iranians who are fed up with
the poverty, suppression, and
isolation forced upon them
by the fanatic clerics. Are
Iranian deaths just a domestic
Iranian affair?
Why is Obama turning his
back on the young men and
women on Tehran's streets?
What is going through
Obama's mind when he con-
demns, belatedly and meekly,
the violence against civilians
whose only sin was their .
desire to see their democratic
vote respected? Why isn't he
coming to the aid of those
rebelling in the name of uni-
versal values to defend
human rights of democracy,
liberty, and fairness?
I must admit I have no
answer.

19th annual festival

According to www.50states.com,
there are 3,300 newspapers being
published in the United States
today, less than a third of what
existed 120 years ago. Considering
that there are more readers in more
states than in 1880, the loss is
greater than even the raw numbers
show.
At times like this we feel it is
important to remember why a free
press is essential, before we learn
the hard way, if it disappears alto-

spending $3 for 15 tickets
that they used to purchase
sodas, hot dogs, snow cones,
popcorn, water and juices.
The entertainment was pro-
vided by the "Orlando Power

playing music on steel drums.
Their three hours of perform-

This festival is observed
throughout America. For

a brief lesson of our history.)
Juneteenth is the oldest
nationally celebrated com-
memoration of the ending of
slavery in the United States.
On June 19, 1865, the nation
celebrated its first Juneteenth
Independence Day. For more
than 135 years, Juneteenth
Independence Day celebra-
tions have been held to honor
not only the freedoms of'
African Americans but also
to encourage racial harmony
among all.

Strong enough to protect the inter-
ests of the people, and a people
strong enough and well enough
informed to maintain its sovereign
control over the government."
Thomas Jefferson, who was often
furious with the opposition press,
said it most succinctly: "...Were it
left to me to decide whether we
should have a government without
newspapers or newspapers without
a government, I should not hesitate
a moment to prefer the latter."
But we'll give George
Washington the last word: "If the
freedom of speech is taken away
then dumb and silent we may be
led, like sheep to the slaughter."


Even Christians


like to have fun


Do fun and being a
Christian go together? Can
our youth have a good 'time
and incorporate their faith
into it, other than the usual
church activities, etc.? That
seems to be the question on
some parents' minds these
days, as well as some church
leaders.
The thing about youth is,
they are still kids and kids
like to have fun. Parents in
Jesus' day took their chil-
dren and babes to be blessed
by Him and He said to let
the children come to Him,
forbid them not. Now if any-
one was (and still is) holy, it
was/is Jesus. You would
think Him being the Son of
God and all, He wouldn't
have time to bless the kids.
After all, He had plenty of
sick folk to heal and folks to
teach about the kingdom of
God.
But He welcomed them
with open arms and blessed
them. I would imagine they
were awed in His presence,
felt loved and cherished.
Maybe He even told them a
joke or two? He knew how
to relate to kids and, I'm
sure, even teens.
Seems like God has been
known to invade people's
everyday lives throughout
the Bible. Mary was minding
her own business when the
angel was sent to her to tell
her she was with child.
Zachariah was in the temple,
serving the Lord, when the
angel came to him about
Elizabeth having John. Some
of the prophets were out in
the field working when God
gave them a word. Jeremiah
was in a dungeon. I think
that shows how eager our
God is to be part of our
everyday lives, not just the
holy moments. He has the
time, even though He is run-
ning the universe and all of
creation outside our uni-
verse.
He sent His Son, so He
could be a part of our ordi-
nary lives. I'm so glad He
did.
A big part of the reason
kids or teens "go to the
world" is because there's not
much in the church that
meets them on their level.


A Heart's
Journey
Janelle Dennison

Just a bunch of "don't do
this and don't do that." Well,
the question is, what can
they do for fun and God still
be pleased with them? Like a
diet, we know what we
shouldn't eat, so what does
that leave us?
These kids and teens will
be today's and tomorrow's
church. But if they're not
getting reached today, there
may not be a church tomor-
row. Yes these are the last
days, but Jesus said occupy
until I come. Keep forging
ahead, don't let that stop you
from doing and being all you
can.
I know there's been youth
groups who have "fallen off
the wagon," using their
group as a social club, etc.
I'd rather them socialize in
the church than any other
place. As long as there is
strong leadership heading up
the youth groups, there
shouldn't be a problem with
it getting out of hand.
There's one young youth
pastor I know of who incor-
porates his faith into every
part of his life. If he's driv-
ing down U.S. 27 to pick up
a friend, it's ministry. If he's
making sandwiches for the
kids, it's ministry. If he's
playing basketball with the
guys, it's ministry. He prac-
tices the presence of Christ
in his life. He has a youth
group at The Way Church in
Sebring; his name is Chris
Ogden. Youth can have .
good, clean fun with a strong
biblical foundation on which
to build their young lives.
Check it out.
I remember to this day as
a 5-year-old kid, the Sunday
school teacher said that
Jesus would be our best
friend, we could take any-
thing to Him in prayer ...
I've been doing it ever since.
We just never know who
we're reaching .. .or turning
away when it comes to our
youth. Hug a kid today!

Frequent rains haven't put an end to drought yet


Continued from page 1A
"It's a matter of common sense,"
Miller said.
The good news is rainfall is about a
month ahead of where we were last
year at this time, said Clell Ford,
lakes manager for Highlands County.
"Though rainfall has been above


normal so far this rainy season, espe-
cially given that our rainy season got
started before mid-May, the long term
drought really cannot be declared
over until we receive continued
above average rainfall throughout the
rainy season. We'll know in
November if the drought is over," he
said.


Budget shortfall means county will have

to shed at least 32 jobs in coming year


Continued from page 1A
mendations included a 10 percent cut to out-
side agencies as well as slashing 25 percent of
the amount of money the county gives to the
three cities to support their recreation pro-
grams.
Additionally, Wright recommended closure
of the county's shell pit in Charlotte County
for one year, and consolidating the Housing
and Human Services Departments.
"Every reduction being recommended is
done so with (the) idea of minimizing impact
to the public and looking towards the long
'term operation of the county," Wright said in
his letter.
As a way to help shore up county revenues,
Wright proposed a "rollback" of the, mil levy
to 8.00 mils from the current 7.1 mils, which


would generate an additional $5 million for
county coffers.
When real estate values were higher just
two years ago, the county cut the levy rate 21
percent from 9.0 mils to the' current 7.1 mils.
According to Wright, this is not considered
a tax increase under the letter of the law, but
would bring in the same amount of ad val-
orem taxes as the current year.
As the recession took hold last year, the
county used over $15 million from its savings
to balance the. budget, not anticipating the
recession to continue as long as it has so far.
Finally, Wright's letter suggested reinstat-
ing the County Occupational License Tax,
which, according to Wright, could raise over
$200,000.
The proposed budget goes before the coun-
ty commission at 9 a.m. on Tuesday.


Controlling light pollution an issue


Continued from page 1A
the nocturnality of many
'creatures," said Chad Moore,
Night Sky Manager with the
National Park Service. "Not
protecting the night will
destroy the habitat of many
animals."
Bats and migrating birds,
in particular, have been
affected, both becoming dis-
oriented.

Too much light may
cause health
problems
Humans may be impaired,
also. For example, several.
studies have shown a
correlation between
excessive artificial light
exposure and breast and
prostate cancers.
One reason, presented in
an article published in the
December 2005 edition of
"Cancer Research," is that
melatonin - a hormone
produced by the pineal gland
that helps regulate the
body's biological clock - is
only secreted at night.
Studies have shown that
darkness increases its
production, while production
has decreased in people who
work in artificial light at
night.
Researchers also are find-
ing possible connections
between disruptions of the
natural sleep cycle due to
excessive light'and problems
like insomnia, weight gain,
depression and the onset of
diabetes.
The emerging research is
compelling enough that on
June 15, the American
Medical Association passed
a resolution that it "develop
and enact a policy that sup-
ports light pollution reduc-
tion efforts and glare reduc-
tion efforts at both the
national and state levels."
The AMA also recom-
mended that the organization
support legislation, "that all
future street lights will be of
a fully shielded design or
similar non-glare design to
improve the safety of our


roadways, but especially
vision impaired and older
drivers."

One community's
approach
Some communities have
already taken major steps to
control the amount of light
in public places.
The City of Sanibel Island
is one such example.
In a telephone interview
Sanibel's city manager, Judi
Zimomra, explained that her
city was unusual from the
beginning, given that it is
located on a barrier island
and that a majority of the
land is a protected wildlife
refuge. She said it was why
a very strict code was creat-
ed.
The city allows no neon or
interior illuminated signs,
nor does it have traffic
lights, let alone street lights.
"We consider ourselves a
sanctuary," Zimomra said,
which means "lighting is just
part of an overall strategy,"
that includes land use and
landscaping.
The important point,
Zimomra added, was that the
city ordinances were adopted
through a public referendum,
the passage of which had
been citizen driven.
In the early 2000s, she
said, the citizens gave them-
selves 15 years to create a
dark sky. Private outdoor
lighting cannot produce glow
or glare, nor may light
intrude onto a neighbor's
property. American flags
have to be lit from above.
The city code includes illus-
trations of appropriate light-
ing fixtures.
New lamp designs are
readily available. The simple
act of recessing the bulb
does much to prevent both
glow and glare. Timers and
motion triggered lighting
also are useful. '

State takes steps
Some state agencies are
making adjustments.
Chester Henson, the
Florida Department of
Transportation's safety engi-


never, said in a telephone
interview that the state
began changing out roadway
lights 25 years ago looking
for energy savings and long-
lasting bulbs.
"We're trying to kick
down light pollution,"
Henson said.
The department now uses
full cut-off heads - that is
light heads that aim the light
toward the ground - and
shorter light poles, because
of citizen complaints regard-
ing light trespass. Mercury
vapor lights are no longer
used.
The newer lights, Henson
said, "are a lot more friend-
ly, not as bright."
The FDOT continues to
change out its lighting'by
attrition.
Much of major limited-
access highway system light-
ing has already been con-
verted. Soon the only fix-
tures that will throw light
upward on main highways
will be those that illuminate
road signs.
Locally, lighting has been
changed out on U. S. 27
between Bay View Drive and
Sun.'N Lakes Blvd.
Some entrepreneurs have
pointed out that creating, or
preserving, a dark sky has
economic implications as
well, far beyond the savings
accrued with the use of ener-
gy efficient lighting.
An increasing number of
people are looking for hous-
ing in light restricted areas,
especially those interested in
astronomy.
Developments have been
expressly created for these
interested families and indi-
viduals. The Arizona Sky
Village and Rancho Hidalgo
in New Mexico are two such
communities. So is
Chiefland Astronomy Village
located between Gainesville
and the Gulf. These develop-
ments have proved very pop-
ular, the Arizona Sky Village
quickly selling out.
It has been suggested that
the Venus area of Highlands
County is still dark enough
that it could be developed in
the same way.


The county has received 19 inches
of rain so far this year - most of that
falling in May and June. That is six to
eight inches more than fell in the first
six',months of 2008,
All -that rain has been a benefit to
the area's many lakes.
"Lake Jackson has risen approxi-
mately 0.1 foot in the last week,


which may not sound like a lot of
water, but it amounts to more than 1
billion gallons," Ford said-
However, as a point of reference,
Ford said Lake Jackson has to rise
another four feet to meet its pre-
drought level and provide flow to
Josephine Creek.


Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE -
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson today announced
that yellow road signs that
read "Prescribed Burn" and
"Fire, Smoke Area" will
soon be appearing along
major roadways when a
prescribed, burn is taking
place.
A revised agreement with
Bronson's Division of
Forestry, the Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles, Highway Patrol,
and the Department of
Transportation will enable
prescribed burners to place
the yellow signs along
highways when warranted.
Bronson emphasized that


the yellow signs should not
be confused with the orange
"Reduced Speed, Smoke"
or bright pink "Reduced
Speed" warning signs that
are currently used when
smoke already has reduced
visibility along a roadway.
"The purpose of the new
yellow signs is to let
motorists know that
because a prescribed or
controlled burn is taking
place in the area, a shift in
wind could affect visibili-
ty," Bronson said. "And we
also want to inform drivers
that there's no need to call
911 because the fire is
already being managed."

issues relating to smoke on
highways, visit www.fl-

No rush

permits
Continued from page 1A
have gotten a permit for
its proposed addition in
Lake Placid.
On the horizon, five
other requests have been
submitted, but not per-
mitted, for houses, and
an 11-unit strip mall at
7741 U.S. 27 North has
been approved, but not
picked up as of noon on
Thursday.
Also in the works is a
new Hampton Inn on
U.S. 27 South just south
of the Sebring Parkway,
according to Architect Ed
Pilkington in Lake
Wales, but no permits at
the county level have
been submitted.
County Commission-
ers decided to suspend
the impact fees for 12
months starting.on July 1
in order to hopefully spur
development.
Highlands County as a
whole relies heavily on
new development to run
its economic engine, but
the current recession has
left a lot of related busi-
nesses with revenue
shortfalls.

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

The name

fit, but

wasn't as

great as the

man
It was a tragic way to find
out, I'm sad to say, that a
boxing great had a pretty
bad nickname.
When I read the news that
Alexis Arguello, the great
junior-lightweight champion
and elected mayor of
Manaqua in his native
Nicaragua last year, had
been found dead, I was sad-
dened.
Mainly, the word of his
passing stirred me to recall
some of his memorable
fights -mostly the two epic
battles against Aaron Pryor.
But farther down in the
article, I read that he was
nicknamed "The Explosive
Thin Man."
I'm not sure how catchy
of a nickname that is.
It's descriptive, no doubt,
and definitely fit Arguello,
whose punching power
belied his slender build..
But it may just be a bit too
long and non-flowing to

Triple-play, late homer not enough



to rally Avon Park
MAlert: The District 8 Dixie Boys (age 14)
title game between Sebring and
Okeechobee was rained out Wednesday
night. The game was to be made up
Thursday night, pushing it past the
News-Sun press deadline. Catch full
-coverage of the district championship
game in the Sunday, July 5 edition of the
News-Sun.

Alfred "Big Red" Brown was on the mound when Avon Park turned a sixth-inning triple
play Tuesday night


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Avon
Park's All-Star's (age 14)
were ousted 7-1 in seven
innings of play by
Okeechobee Tuesday night
in the District-8 Dixie
Tournament in Sebring.
A triple-play executed
perfectly in the sixth, and a
seventh-inning, Lane
Crossen solo' home run
were not enough to rally
Avon Park's bats.
Three of Okeechobee's
seven runs came off of
Avon Park errors in the
fourth and sixth.
Avon Park seemed to
struggle at the plate all
night, racking up just four
hits on the evening, and for
the most part, their defense
was solid except for two
errors at critical junctures.
"Our bats did not come
alive at anytime during this
tournament," said Avon
park's head coach. Jeff
Brock. "I am proud of how
the kids performed all sea-
son, and I enjoyed coach-
ing, but we did not hit as a
team."


Brock also announced his
retirement from coaching
this year, stating that he
"enjoyed coaching, but I
am officially done."
'Chobee's Billy Childers
stayed the course for the
full seven innings, his
steady hurling assisting the
defense to keep Avon Park
off-balance.
Childers gave up just
four hits and three bases on
balls to go with four strike
outs.
Avon Park's Crossen
started on the mound,
pitched for five, and was
replaced with Alfred "Big
Red" Brown, who took the
team through to the sev-
enth, when Billy Rogers
was asked to finish up.
The triple-play was trig-
.gered in the sixth when
Okeechobee loaded the
bases with the first three
batters.
A hit to Avon Park's
short stop, Alex Rosa was
stopped and thrown to
home where catcher Stevie
Flowers touched the plate

Stocking-hatchery

reared largemouth

bass for healthy

fisheries


By Bob Wattendorf, Wes
Porak and Rick Stout
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) may
be close to a breakthrough
with stocking bass for bet-
ter fishing opportunities.
We hear it all the time,
"Bass management is easy,
just stock more fish." Truth
is - it isn't that simple.
FWC biologists, as .well
as other fishery research
experts, have understood
for years that merely stock-
ing fingerling bass rarely
improves fishing.
Biologists at the FWC's
Florida Bass Conservation
Center (FBCC) in Sumter
County began pioneering-
research that enabled scien-
tists to produce larger
advanced fingerling bass
(approximately 4 inches
long).
The FBCC concentrated
on specific conditions
where stocking fingerlings
actually works.
For example, stocking
fingerling bass into a new
reservoir or community
pond built for fishing, or
stocking them into a lake
following a drought, after a
fish kill, or after comple-
tion of a habitat-restoration
program can restore a pop-
ulation more quickly than
natural reproduction alone.
The biologists under-
stand that bass stocking
results in a more effective
management tool with a
larger hatchery, so they can
eat a greater variety of
prey.
Being bigger also is an
advantage because fewer
predators can eat them.
Sounds simple, but the
problems have been signif-
icant.
First, largemouth bass
are typically spawned natu-
rally in hatchery ponds,
because they don't respond
well to hormones, such as
those used to spawn striped
bass.
In addition, small bass
are cannibals, and they
don't like artificial foods,
which are used in hatch-
eries for catfish and trout.
Therefore, bass were his-
torically grown in fertilized
outdoor ponds with lots of
zooplankton (tiny floating
animals such as insect lar-
vae).
Predators, including
minnows, insects and frogs,
ate the eggs anrd baby fish.
As the survivors grew larg-
er, other predators such as
birds began feasting on the
young bass where they con-
centrated in outdoor ponds.
Consequently, the FBCC
was designed to intensively
culture largemouth bass
indoors using state-of-the-
art technology.
The FBCC has the poten-
tial to produce more than 1
million advanced fingerling
largemouths annually.
Through research, scien-
tists found a way to trick
bass fry into eating artifi-
cial food.
It was discovered that by
crowding fry together and
feeding them live brine


shrimp (the size of a gnat)
they'd go into a feeding
frenzy and be less choosy
in what they ate.
That allowed researchers
to mix in artificial food that
was about the size and
color of the brine shrimp.
Once the bass fry began
eating the artificial food, it
,was easier to progressively
train them to take bigger
pellets as the bass grew in
size.
Other research has
improved culture condi-
tions, fish health manage-
ment, handling and hauling
protocols.
Now scientists are com-
paring survival - rates
between hatchery fish that
are simply stocked at a boat
ramp in the traditional
manner, versus those dis-
tributed into vegetated
habitats around the lake, so
they are more dispersed
and avoid predators more
easily.
One study found that
advanced fingerling large-
mouth reared in ponds on
live aquatic organisms and
stocked into Lake Talquin,
near Tallahassee, fed on
fishes more successfully
and grew faster than their
wild counterparts during
their first year of life in the
reservoir.
At the end of the first
year, hatchery fish com-
prised 40 percent of the
'bass that survived from that
year's spawn during a year
when 25 fish were stocked
per acre.
Five years after supple-
mental bass stocking,
hatchery fish accounted for
20-27 percent of -bass
caught in tournaments.
Research is being con-
ducted in Lake Talquin to
determine whether pellet-
'reared hatchery bass will
survive as well as hatchery
fish reared on live feed.
The Lake Talquin study
has provided optimism that
stocking advanced sizes of
largemouth bass at the
appropriate time will
become a more widespread
and successful management
tool.
Information gained from
research and adaptive man-
agement is critical to long-
term success of bass stock-
enhancement programs.
Specific spawning strate-
gies are being used to pro-
tect the genetic integrity of
Florida bass populations in
the state.
To 'be completely suc-
cessful, the FWC is dedi-
cated to maintaining
healthy habitats to stock
the fish, as well as making
sure anglers follow the nec-
essary rules to ensure safe,
sustainable, quality recre-
ational fishing for every-
one.

The Park gets

highlight of

night, but not

the win
Continued from 1B
for the force,
Flowers threw to first to
beat the runner for the sec-
ond out.
Anthony Carruthers then
threw to third to try and
catch the runner from sec-
ond.
The throw was a little late,
but the Okeechobee runner
already on third was also late
leaving the bag toward home.
Mason Jahna threw back to
Flowers, who tagged the run-
ner at home for the third out.
Triple play, Avon Park.
But the quick defensive
play was not enough to rally
the rest of the team.
"The triple play was some-
thing, you don't see many of
those, but it wasn't enough,"
Brock said. " Overall, I felt
we played good ball in a
good tourney, but our bats
were just not consistent."



'Latin

Dynamite'

been my

choice
Continued from 1B
really be a great nickname.
And boxing usually lends
itself to great, catchy and fit-
ting descriptors.
Ray " Boom Boom"
Mancini; "The Golden Boy"
Oscar DeLaHoya; Jack
Dempsey the "Manassa
Mauler" and "The Greatest"
Muhammad Ali.
James "Bonecrusher"
Smith was�a great one, nick-
name'thatjs, until he met up
with the bone-crushing abili-
ty of "Iron" Mike Tyson.
Other sports have sported
great monikers as well.
Joe DiMaggio,."The
Yankee Clipper" (before he
became Mr. Coffee); Reggie
"Mr. October" Jackson;
"Shoeless" Joe Jackson; Wilt
"The Stilt" Chamberlain;
Michael "Air" Jordan;
"Downtown" Freddy Brown:
Walter "Sweetness" Payton;
Billy "White Shoes"
Johnson; Dick "Night Train"
Lane; Wayne "The Great
One" Gretzky.
Some nicknames became
so ingrained that they basi-
cally became the player's
name.
"Babe" Ruth, "Magic"
Johnson and "Dr. J" come to
mind.
Point being, nicknames
should be descriptive, flow-
ing and just need to have
that catchiness.
They shouldn't be so
descriptive it takes a virtual
sentence to say it.
Short, fitting and to the
point are the best attributes
to a great sports nickname,
which brings to mind my
current favorite, just heard
this past basketball season -
Orlando backup center
Marcin Gortat "The Polish
Hammer."
Something just so strong
about that one, it just begs to
be yelled out after he does
something great.
Arguello could have had
something like that, that
might have worked better.
He could have gone with
something like the "Slender
Hammer" or the "Managua
Masher."
"Latin Dynamite" would
have been good, seeing as
how a stick of dynamite is,


indeed, thin and powerful.
I think those could have
worked well, but hindsight is
20-20.
Out of respect, to give my
condolences for one of my
favorite fighters when I was
a wee little one, I'll just say,
rest in peace "Explosive
Thin Man."

LIVING


Friday, July 3, 2009


Eaich year we celebrate
ihe country's declaration
of independence from
Britain on on July 4, 1778.
Here are a few historical
fun facts about the


holiday to help
you celebrate.





There are rules about
how to treat the American flag.
According to the code, to dis-
card a worn flag, you should
burn it or contact your local
American Legion post or a Boy
Scout troop to do It for you.


q


I.. U j.*.
John Hancock was the only person to sign the Declaration of
Independence on July 4, 1776. Most of the 56 men who signed
did so on Aug. 2. The youngest man to sign was Edward
Rutledge, who was 26. The oldest was Benjamin Franklin, who
was 70. Also, two future presidents signed: John Adams, the
nation's second president, and Thomas Jefferson, the third pres-
ident.


By 1779, there were more
Americans fighting with the
British than for Washington's
army? About a third of
Americans were opposed to
the war.
At Yorktown, the battle that won
the Revolutionary War, French
soldiers outnumbered American
soldiers almost three to one.








China supplies the
bulk of the fireworks
imported to the
United States.
Japan buys more fire-
works from the United
States than from any
other country.


I


TEA PARTY, PART TWO
There were two Boston tea par-
ties. You probably know about
the one that occurred Dec. 16,
1773, but did you know about the
repeat performance on March 7,
1774? The two tea parties cost:
the British the equivalent of $3.
million in today's money.










SAVING THE DATE
Calvin Coolidge, the 30th U.S.
president, was born July 4,
1872, in Plymouth, Vt. Also,
three presidents died on July 4
- John Adams and Thomas
Jefferson in 1826, and James
Monroe in 1831.

1776, and Margaret
Corbin, who was Wounded

Heights in 1776.

The national anthem was written by a
lawyer on his way to help negotiate the
release of an elder town doctor being
held hostage by the British. The poem
was printed for the first time in the
Baltimore Patriot Sept. 20, 1814, and it
was first performed the next month by a
Baltimore actor who called it "The Star-
Spangled Banner." It was adopted as the
anthem on March 3, 1931.
