A silver lining in the economic clouds


News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS
The large number of homes sitting empty because they are for sale or in foreclosure has
meant more code violations - such as high grass - in Sebring, which has resulted in
more money coming in via the fines.

Real estate bust has been a boon for

code enforcement fine collections


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - The increase
in foreclosures and aban-
doned homes in Highlands
has created some unique
problems for the officials
throughout the county, and
some extra revenue for the
City of Sebring.
Lockouts, abandonments,
and foreclosures often bring
code violations while the
courts sort out the owner-
ship.
Overgrown grass, vandal-
ism, and outright theft are
some of the problems associ-
ated with homes left unat-
tended.
According to an e-mail
from the Clerk of Courts
Office, the number of civil
cases, including foreclo-
sures, are up over last year..
The e-mail said 961 cases


Amount of
money taken in
has almost
doubled in the
past two years
were filed from January to
June of this year in Circuit
Civil Court. That is an
increase of 117 cases over
the 2008 filings of 844,
which was a banner year
because of the downturn in
the economy.
Foreclosures make up the
majority of those cases every
year.
For the first six months in
this year, there have been
740 cases filed for foreclo-
sure compared to the 598 in
2008.


Code enforcement viola-
tions for those foreclosures
are also on the rise, but
according to Sebring Police
Department's Commander
Carr. the collections for
those violations are also up.
: "We, are seeing an increase
in routine maintenance
issues, but the banks have
been very good at taking
care of the liens against
properties because they want
a clear title," Commander
Carr said.
"Issues like tall grass,
painting, broken or boarded
up windows are on the rise,
but so is the compliance,"
Carr added.
"Our guys do a really
good job in reaching out and
finding a contact person if a
bank owns the property, and

Special to the News-Sun
This summer a bright star will begin a
puzzling transformation that only happens
every 27 years. To help study this event,
astronomers have launched a new citizen
science project called "Citizen Sky."
Epsilon Aurigae is a bright star that can
be seen with the unaided eye even in very
light-polluted areas of the northern hemi-
sphere from fall to spring.
Late this summer, it is predicted to grad-
ually lose half its brightness until early
winter. It will remain faint during all of
2010 before slowly regaining its normal
brightness by the summer of 2011.
Since its discovery in 1821, the cause of
this dip in brightness has remained a mys-
tery to astronomers, but this time they have
a powerful new resource to help study the
upcoming event - thousands of citizen sci-


entists, all coordinated via the Internet.
"This star is too
bright to be
observed with
the vast majori-
ty of profes-
sional tele-
scopes, so this
is another area
where public help is -
needed," said Dr. Arne Henden,
director of the American Association of
Variable Star Observers (AAVSO).
Citizen Sky will recruit, train, and coor-
dinate public participation in this project.
What makes this project different from
previous citizen science projects is iis
emphasis on participation in the full scien-
tific method. Participants are not being
asked simply to collect data, they will also

'No easy answers' for Avon Park's budget crunch


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK - Monday night's
special meeting of the city council
revealed once again the city's difficult
financial situation.
Facing a minimum shortfall of
$300,000, City Manager Sarah Adelt
and Renee Green, the city finance
director, are facing tough choices in
the mandated effort to balance the
budget - the pain of those choices is
becoming clear in council discussions.
Part of the city's dilemma is the
result of demographics (only about 15
percent of property owners actually
pay property taxes), part of it has to do
with the recession (property values


'It's impossible to cut $300,00 without
cutting jobs or services, or both.'

council member


have dropped so tax revenues also
have dropped) and part of the problem
has to do with past decisions.
For example, current water rates are
too low, the council was told. They do
not cover the cost of maintaining the
water treatment and delivery infra-
structure, and maintenance was
deferred for years meaning repairs are
going to be costly.
Green has recommended, "for the


year 2010 we keep our current (water
rate) tiers and increase all rates 30 per-
cent."
In an interview Tuesday morning,
council member Joe Wright said
"there are no easy answers." In addi-
*tion to having to cut $300,000 out of
the budget, the flow through funds -
like the fuel tax and the penny tax -
also are decreasing. "If we remain in a
recession," he said, "we may lose


another $200,000. We have to have a
contingency-for that."
Wright said the worst news was that
"It's impossible to cut $300,000 with-
out cutting jobs or services, or both."
City employees, through their
union, AFSCME Local 3567, have
expressed their concern.
According to Mike Temple, region-
al director, for a year the local offered
$100 to any city employee who could
come up-with a cost-saving idea.
In addition, the union prepared a
letter containing 11 suggestions of
* how to save money.

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christ @newssun .con
SEBRING - Investigators with
the Highlands County Sheriff's
Office continued looking into an
incident Saturday morning at a park
in SpringLake.
According to HCSO Lt. Tim
Lethbridge, a 911 call was placed at
8:45 a.m. near Pine Breeze Park.

Water deposit hikes

pass on first reading


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.ffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK - In a
special meeting Monday
night, during tight econom-
ic times and facing short-
falls in the city budget, city
council members passed
the first reading of an ordi-
nance that calls for raising
the amount of utility
deposits, provides for liens
and disconnection of serv-
ice in the event of nonpay-
ment, and a sewer recon-
nection charge.
The ordinance also pro-
vides that the owner of a
building or property will be
held liable and responsible
for charges for all utilities.
The lien may be applied
when a bill for utilities
remainsmunpaid for 30 days
after it becomes due, and
shall remain in place until
the bill is paid in full.
The lien will include all
costs associated with
recording it, as well as the
amount owed. These liens
will supersede all other
liens except for unpaid
taxes, and be at parity with
those.
The deposit required for
water service will be $150
for every residence, regard-
less if a single-family
home, a duplex or an apart-
ment with an individual
meter. Multi-family apart-
ments with a master meter
will have estimated
deposits based on three
months average use, but not


be less than $250. If, in a
six month time, usage
increases, the deposit may
be increased to mirror that
use.
Labor camps and com-
mercial establishments also
will have deposits based on
three months average
usage, but not be less than
$250, and that deposit also
may be raised if a six
month average shows
increased use.
The deposit for a the
installation of a temporary
three-inch hydrant will be
$565; the installation fee
for the hydrant shall be
$100.
The new deposits will
apply to everyone request-
ing water service.
If a water bill is not paid
within 10 days of its due
date, the city is authorized
to shut off and lock the
water meter.
If the bill remains unpaid
seven days after the meter
is shut off, the city is
authorized to close the
account and use the deposit
to pay the outstanding
charges.
If charges remain after
an account has been closed,
the city is authorized to
submit the account to a col-
lection agency.
A person requesting new
water service shall pay a
$30 'start-up fee during
service hours, and $50 for
connection at other times.

School supply drive begins

for Guardian Ad Litem


By TREY CHRISTY
tey .cristy@ newssun .com
SEBRING - While
thoughts of going back to
school iay be the last thing
on a a student's mind,- the
local Guardian Ad Litem
program knows they need
to 'be ready to send 200
children to school prepared.
To do this, the program is
asking for help from the
community, said Juanita
Masters, staff advocate for
Guardian Ad Litem..
This will be their first
year for a back-to-school
supply drive.
"We do Christmas, but
seeing parents they are say-
ing the cost of school sup-
plies has gone up," Masters
said. "Sometimes they have
to choose between school
supplies and clothing."
The children who will
befefit from the drive have
been removed from their
homes due to abuse, neglect
or abandonment. They are
represented in Dependency
Court by the Guardian Ad
Litem program.
They live in various
places. Some are placed
with a relative and that rel-
ative gets a small sum of
money, but in most cases
caretakers don't get any
help and are forced to use
their own resources.
"It's tough when they're
on a limited budget,"
Masters said. "Sometimes
they are doing homework
and don't have the supplies
at home because parent's
just don't have the funds to
buy them."
Items needed for dona-
tion include pencils, pens,


paper, markers, book bags,
rulers, folders, school
boxes, markers and
crayons.
Masters said slje is plan-
ning to set up a drop-off
location in each city -
Avon Park, Sebring and
Lake Placid, and her office
will also arrange for pick-
up.
The drop-off location in
Avon Park is the Avon Park

the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office, in North
Sebring it's Florida

On Tuesday Gerheim was able to

"There is possible indications that
this is self inflicted," Capt. Randy

Florida black bear encounters increase in the summer as the bears become more
active.

Active bears roam for food


and mates in the summer


Special to the News-Sun
A woman in Lehigh Acres
in Lee County had a sur-
prise Monday morning
when she encountered a
black bear outside of her
work.
Del Bagwell told officers
with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission ,(FWC) she
was working at Country
Cleaners in the Sunshine
Plaza when she went out-
side at approximately 7:20
a.m.
A black bear came run-
ning around the corner of
the building and bumped
into her.
"She was not knocked to
the ground or injured," said
FWC Officer Joanne
Adams.
"She said she looked at
the bear, and the bear
looked at her. Then she
raised her arms and backed
up slowly to the store door."
. Bagwell then went inside
the store and the bear ran
off, Adams said.
"Ms. Bagwell did the
right thing," said Dave
Telesco, FWC Bear
Management Program coor-
dinator. "She did not panic
or run; she backed away
slowly, giving the bear a
clear escape route to run
away."
Seeing a bear in unfamil-
iar surroundings can be a
surprising phenomenon.
Even though the Florida
black bear has increased in
population in the past few
decades, it is still consid-
ered a threatened species in
Florida. As development

encroaches on its habitat, it
is not unusual for bears to be
seen near human popula-
tions, but it is highly unusu-
al for humans to come face-
to-face with a bear.
However, if you do
encounter a black bear at
close range, take the follow-
ing precautions: Remain
standing straight up; back
up slowly; speak in a calm,
assertive voice; do not run
or play dead; and leave the
bear a clear escape route.
Summer is a very active
time for bears. They are
searching for a variety of
fruits and other seasonal
foods that grow throughout
their range. Summer is also
breeding season, when bears
search far and wide for
mates. Also, in late summer,
juvenile bears disperse from
their mother's home range
and look for new habitat. All
of those factors can bring


bears into populated areas
where they normally would
'not venture.
When wildlife appears in
residential communities, the
FWC urges residents to
remove or secure anything
that might attract animals,
such as garbage cans, pet
food, birdseed, outdoor
grills and compost bins. If a
bear continues to come into
an area after all attractants
have been removed and cre-
ates problems for residents,
then the FWC will consider
trapping the bear. Capturing
bears is an option in cir-
cumstances where bears are
causing a conflict or there is
a safety risk.
Residents may call any
FWC regional office, if they
have any questions about
bears, or they may call the
FWC's Wildlife Alert
Hotline at 888-404-3922 to
report wildlife conflicts.

We recently saw on TV
some people are asking
for a Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson holiday.
He never did anything as
significant as Martin

deserves the title of King

Hope, who sacrificed
each Christmas with his
wife and children to be
overseas with our troops
in World War II, Korea

County needs Sebring Historical Society


archivist to keep our sense of community


The Sebring Historical Society is a
unique and wonderful place that serves
all of the people of Highlands County.
But the name can be misleading, in the
sense that it doesn't really describe its
services to people who haven't been
there.
And the location doesn't help either,
although it's part of the Sebring Public
Library. The front door is in the back
of the library building, on the ground
floor facing Lake Jackson, next to the
Community Center.
Once inside, however, a visitor is
treated to a light, bright space filled
with displays, objects, photos and doc-
uments that illustrate the history of the
people and institutions of our commu-
nity.
In addition to files containing just
about any Sebring subject a person can
ask for, the Society also has informa-
tion about Avon Park and Lake Placid.
There are 100 display notebooks
containing articles, photographs and
documents organized according to sub-
ject matter contained in these big, col-
orful binders. These are placed on
tables all over the archives.
If you want to learn about our com-
munity's people, families, buildings or
businesses, they are there. There are
books on the Sebring International
Raceway, our churches and schools, our
African-American history, and more.
Every yearbook from Sebring High
School is on'file - if you made it
through high school, you're a part of
history!
Of course, such a rich and detailed
collection didn't get there by itself. The
process of building a historical archive


Guest
Column
Patricia C Pond

is done by an archivist - a specialist
who collects and maintains all of the
little pieces of information and catalogs
them so other people can find them.
Carole Goad is the archivist for the
Sebring Historical Society, and she is
the best of the best. The most important
thing. about any archive is accessibility.
Users need to be able to find stuff
when they need stuff.
I have been a writer, editor and fac-
ulty member all of my life, including
five years as a correspondent to the
News Sun. For more than 50 years, I
have done research in libraries and
archives, public and private, govern-
ment and university.
: The archives of the Sebring
Historical Society are as good as any I
have used, and better than some I have
encountered in large colleges. The level
of personal service is amazing. When I
am in the middle of writing an article
and need a date or a detail, I send an
email to Carole with my request. Often,
I have her reply with the needed infor-
mation within the hour. Many local
reporters and writers rely on Carole to
find the background detail they need
for their work.
Carole also hosts groups of people
interested in local history: South
Florida Community College's Lifetime
Learners and Leadership Highlands,
school children from elementary
through college age and various local
organizations. She also works with high


school and college teachers and stu-
dents on research projects.
Every effort is made to include all of
the citizens in the materials and activi-
ties of the Historical. Society. You don't
have to be a pioneer, a famous person
or an over-achiever for your accom-
plishments to be recognized and
become part of Sebring's history.
"We enable all individuals and
groups of people to see themselves as
important to the community," Goad
believes. "When people discover that
they are included (in our archives) they
realize they are stakeholders, that what
they do matters and is recognized and
remembered in our community."
The Highlands County Commission
is planning to eliminate the position of
archivist to the Sebring Historical
Society as part of budget-cutting
actions.
Without an archivist, the files and
collections will become a stack of car-
tons, piles of papers and boxes of pho-
tos.
No volunteer, no matter how willing,
can replace the knowledge, patience
and dedication of an experienced
archivist. Eliminating this position is
not saving money - it is wasting money
invested in creating a resource already
serving our community.
And it is another step in dissolving
our sense of community - that connec-
tion to. people and place that makes
Sebring such a special place to live.

Column
Dale L. Gillis


Are the "Left Behind"
books a success for
Christianity? Religious
books are not usually best-
sellers. When the series
came out many had never
heard of their central tenet,
that someday God would
instantly remove Christians
from the world, the Rapture,.
Before the "Left Behind"s
series, the notion of Rapture
was populated by Hal
Lindsey. Although lacking
an undergraduate degree,
Lindsey attended a theologi-
cal graduate school but only
has a certificate of atten-
dance. World Net Daily
"exclusively" runs a column
by Lindsey, since no one
else wants it. His columns
never mention the Rapture.
Belief in a Rapture has
sometimes led to date set-
ting. Edgar Whisenant pre-
dicted that God would
Rapture Christians from the
Earth in 1988. Harold
Camping predicted that
Christians would be
Raptured in 1994. Obviously
neither happened.
Not all Evangelicals
believe in a Rapture.
California Pastor Jim
Spillman grew up believing
in a Rapture but gradually
realized that he could find
no Scripture to support it.
He withdrew into seclusion
for several days contemplat-
ing the issue. Spillman came
out and told his church that
Christians would go through
the Tribulation, that there
would be no Rapture. We
learn this in Dr. James
McKeever's "The Rapture
Book."
Rapture collides with mis-
sions in a strange way, as
McKeever points out. While
Rapturists teach that Christ
will Rapture the church
before persecution starts,
Christians are being perse-
cuted in many places in the
world today. In countries
where persecution is a reali-
ty, such claims have a hol-
low ring.
The Rapture came out of a
theological movement called
Dispensationalism. What is
the basic idea of
Dispensationalism? Oddly
enough, there doesn't seem
to be one, except for the
Rapture itself. It is an
extremely shattered and dis-
organized movement.
Rapturists made the dubious
claim that their belief goes
back to the beginning of
Christianity. Religious histo-
,rians trace the idea to about
1830. In a 1937 book "The
Approaching Advent of
Christ," Alexander Reese
says, "Yet the undeniable
fact is that this 'any-
moment' view of Christ's
Return only originated about
1830, when Darby gave forth
at the same time the mistak-
en theory of the Secret
Coming and Rapture..."
Historian Dave
MacPherson disagrees only
to the extent that J.N. Darby
of the United Brethren stole
the notion of a special
Rapture from Rev. Edward
Irving, originally a
Presbyterian. Both were
British. Irving was thrown
out of the Presbyterian
Church for denying the
divinity of Christ. Afterward,
he founded a charismatic
group, the Catholic

Apostolic Church. A young
married woman in this
church, Margaret
Macdonald, claimed a per-
sonal revelation which seems
to be the, origin of the whole
notion bf Rapture.
Influenced by Macdonald's
revelation, Irving was soon
preaching the notion from
the pulpit.
As conceived in Irving's
church, only the most wor-
thy Christians were to be
Raptured. The idea has
changed over the years.
Margaret Macdonald thought
that the 19th century social-
ist Robert Owen would turn
out to be the Antichrist.
The idea might have had
little impact but it spread to
another British church, the,
United Brethren, specifically
Rev. J.N. Darby. The United
Brethren managed to have ,
six schisms in 30 years. One
eyewitness described
Darby's church: "I know,
indeed,,of no sect so utterly
devoid of kindness of heart."
From there the notion of
Rapture spread through
Schofield's Reference Bible.
Schofield included
Dispensationalism notions-in
the notes to his widely read
edition of the Bible. This led
many to believe that these
views were in consensus
among scholars. This
account of where the star-
tling notion of Rapture came
from can be found in Dave
MacPherson's book "The
Rapture Plot." MacPherson
read hundreds of church
newsletters from the 19th
century in his quest for the
origins and spread of certain
religious ideas. Perhaps most
important, MacPherson
assures us that early
Christian writings show no
hint of Any secret Rapture
separate from the Second
Coming.
Rapturists have often
claimed that Old Testament
festivals prefigure, or even
prove, the Rapture. There is
no agreement on which festi-
val is the starting point, or
what exactly it proves. One
of the most imminent living
bispe6fltiohalists, Rev. John
Walvoord, says that there is
no hint' of Rapture in the Old
Testament.
The notion of a Rapture
has a surprising hold on peo-
ple, despite being flatly con-
tradicted by Scripture. "My
prayer: is not that you take
them out of this world but
that you protect them from
the evil one," Jesus says
praying in Gethsemane.
Likewise, Peter says that
Christ will "remain in heav-
en" until the time comes "to
restore everything" in Acts'
3. This rules out the
Rapturists' secret fly-by
where Christ grabs his fol-
lowers.
In the end,
Dispensationalists or
Rapturists have done nothing
but spread confusion.

APCI employee faces drug charges


Continued from 2A
the Florida Department of
Corrections said.
The undercover operation
run by the HCSO reportedly
delivered the drugs to Pillajo
at 9:15 Friday night at the
Circle K, located at the U.S.
98 and U.S. 27 intersection
in South Sebring.
"Pillajo accepted the
above described drugs and
payment," wrote HCSO offi-
cer Michael Abell in the
arrest report.
An investigation into
Pillajo started in June after
receiving tips from an
informant, said Jo Ellyn
Rackleff, spokesperson for
the Florida DOC.
"We did the investigation
and thought there were crim-
inal charges," she said. "We
turned it over to the State


Attorney and worked with
outside law enforcement to
do the sting."
Pillajo was charged with
possession of an opium
derivative with intent to sell,
distribution
of marijuana,
trafficking in
cocai new ,
smuggling
contraband.
into a prison
Pillajo facility, and
possession of
narcotic equipment.
He was booked into the
Highlands County Jail with-
out incident Friday, and
remained there Tuesday
afternoon on $50,500 bond.
He had worked as a well-
ness officer with the APCI
since July 28, 2006.
"While I am disgusted by


the actions of this officer, I
am pleased with the contin-
ued ' work of the
Department's Inspector
Generals," said DOC
Secretary Walt McNeil in the
press release. "The
Department's Inspectors'
along with security staff con-
tinue to work diligently to
keep drugs, contraband and
illegal activity out of our
prison system regardless of
who is involved.'"
Pillajo has been terminat-
ed from his position at the
prison and the Florida DOC
press release said they "are
working with law enforce-
ment to ensure he is prose-
cuted to the fullest extent of
the law."
The investigation remains
open.


AP moves to increase water fees


Continued from 2A
Service fees will become part of the bill and
subject to lien and disconnect. Service will be
scheduled within two business days from the
date of the request.
There will be a $40 reconnection fee for
service that has been cut-off during service
hours, and $80 at other times.
Anyone who has had service disconnected,
will be required to pay a larger deposit in the
amount of his monthly bill.
A late payment of five percent of any bal-
ance, with a one dollar minimum, shall be


added to the amount due if payment 'is not
received by 2 p.m. on or before the date due.
Mayor Sharon Schuler said the increased
deposit applies to new accounts, not those
already established.
However, should a consumer default on a
water bill, the increased deposit would apply
on reconnection.
City attorney Gerald Buhr said the deposit
increase was needed to protect the city.
A public hearing on the ordinance and its
second reading are expected to be on the
agenda for the city council's July 27 meeting.

ed from Columbus High School in 1960. He then attended IUPUI where

the letter was delivered to the
city council before it was
delivered to the city manager.
Temple said that was unfor-
tunate, but a matter of bad
timing, not an intended slight
- an effort had been made to
give the letter to Adelt first.
"We know she's in a very
tough situation," Temple said.
'OThe spirit of the letter was to
be helpful."
While Temple said it was a
"horrendous" choice, he feels
the residents of the city
should face the possibility of
raising taxes - especially if
they want services continued
at their present level. For
example, the utilities window
at city hall is now only open
eight hours a week because of
reductions in staff.
As a union representative,
Temple admitted his goal is to
save jobs and prevent salary
reductions.
"Some of our members
already quality for food
stamps," he said. "Residents
need to step up. Another $10 a
year in property tax should be
manageable. We're paying
less because of fallen property
values, so even if the millage
is raised, it doesn't mean any-
one would pay more than
before the fall.
"The citizens have to con-
sider the services and decide.
City staff is already stretched
thin."
Any push for a rise in the
millage rate would have to
come- from the public. There
is -no "will for a raise in tax
frod elected officials.
There will be a budget
workshop Saturday starting at
� a.m. in council chambers.
Citizens are encouraged to
attend.

21 county employees face job loss


The following is the letter sent to city leaders containing
ideas to save money. One of the suggestions have already
been taken - a rise in water and sewer rates. The News-Sun
is publishing the letter without further comment. That should
not be taken as approval or disapproval of any of the ideas.
The point is to stimulate discussion.

We the members of AFSCME Local 3597 would like you to
take into consideration the following cost-saving recommen-
dations:
1. Increase rates for the Water and Sewer.
2. Lease or sell Community Center.
3. Start charging rent for the FBO hangar instead of trading
it for mowing the grass.
4. Terminate the services of the Governmental Services
Group and hire a Public Works Director.
5. Let the Parks and Street Department retake responsibili-
ty for the mowing of the mall, parks, right of ways and airport,
etc.
6. Discontinue Central Florida Generator Services contract
for maintenance on the City generators. This work can be
done by city employees, with a cost savings of $9,200.
7. Sell the City of Avon Park Public Works facility possibly
to the college and move all the Public Works to the Classic
Caladium building and move them out. The Classic Caladium
building backs up to the City of Avon Park Water Plant. The
Public Works facility sits on prime highway property.
8. Let the Project Manager be reimbursed as a percentage
of the grants obtained or do away with the Project Manager
and use outside people and resources as we did in the past.
This saves the expense of having someone employed full-
time. In addition, outside resources are paid only if they suc-
cessfully obtain a grant or grants.
9. Health Insurance - The City currently has two choices:
Plan 3769 and Plan 3166. Only offer plan 3166, to our approx-
imate 90 employees and save the City as much as $101,628.
Since this is a pre-tax deduction there would be an additional
savings on Fica and Medicare tax that the City pays. Right
now there are presently some employees on the 3166 plan.
10. At the last City Council meeting you approved $97,000
to replace fire hydrants per the recommendation of the exist-
ing city management. They are going outside this City to get
the job done. Existing employees can do this job for an esti-
mated $27,000. The funds used are infrastructure funds and
with the dollars saved it could be used on the inter-connect for
Sebring Ridge.
11. Employees are willing to discuss a cut in the basic 40-
hour work week by two to four hours per payday with the con-
dition that the budget is reviewed every quarter to look at the
finances. If the City's finances allow we would then want to
return to our basic 40-hour week. In lack of any other modifi-
cation to this agreement to reduce hours, the sun would set
on this September 30, 2010.
We the employees keep this City running. We are there
when a customer has a sewer back up or water line break. We
pick up garbage, fill pot holes, cut brush, keep records and we
faithfully serve the citizens of this community everyday, which
also includes special occasions and emergencies. We are
there where "the rubber meets the road," we do have a spe-
cial knowledge of this community's problems and need to be
heard.


Continued from page 1A
Enforcement and the
Building Department, rec-
ommended cutting eight
more positions in addition
to the two from Human
Services.
"I think this will better
service the public to have
these services located at one
location," Hill said.
Of the eight other job cuts
recommended by Hill,
seven are in building
department and five of those
jobs are already vacant.
"The building department
is an enterprise fund, and
the department is run by the
amount of permits and fees
it collects. We must down-
size the department as a
reflection of the revenue
that is coming in," Hill said.
,One of the vacant posi-
tions included a fourth code
enforcement officer. "This
will impact code enforce-
ment. This will impact serv-
ices to the public," Hill
said.
Commissioners Don
Bates and Guy . Maxcy
directed Hill to keep the
fourth code enforcement
position, which is not cur-
rently filled.
Kyle Green, director of
Road and Bridge, stated that
County Administrator
Wright allowed him to offer
to cut the shell plant that is
maintained in Charlotte
County, but move the possi-
ble lost jobs to a different
department under Green's
supervision.
"We were able to cut a
substantial amount of
money without any layoffs,"
Green said, but added that
there are seven potential
jobs that could be cut.
Most of Green's cuts
came from repair and main-
tenance, but he said that the
budget may have issues if a
storm was to hit area.
Ramone Gavarrete, direc-
tor of the county's


'I know



need to
(cut
jobs),
but we need to do
everything we can
do to keep those
folks from being
laid off. Ninety-
five to 99 percent
of those folks we
lay off are not
going to be able to
find a job. They
are going to add
to the foreclosures
we are now
facing. We need
to consider
drastic measures
to find way to
keep these
employees. This is
an emergency
situation.'

GUY MAXCY
commissioner

Engineering Department,
was also asked to explain
his budget cut recommenda-
tions.
"When you have a depart-
ment that is 71 percent per-
sonnel, and you are asked to
cut 10 percent and later 20
percent in the budget, it is
tough to do that without cut-
ting personnel," Gavarrete
said.
"The department will
continue to provide the
same services and the cut in
permits, means that the

may take a little longer to do
the same jobs. Especially in
inspections," he said.
Gavarrete also stated that
he made cuts in the over-
head of the department,
including the emergency
call outs, which make up the
lion's share of the overtime
in his departments.
All told, Wright recom-
mended eliminating 32 posi-
tions, but just 21 of those
jobs are currently filled.
Maxcy made it clear that
he hated that cuts had to be
made, and wished that each
department take another
look to make sure that the
layoffs did not happen.
"I know that we may need
to (cut jobs), but we need to
do everything we can do to
keep those folks from being
laid off. Ninety-five to 99
percent of those folks we
lay off are not going to be
able to find a job. They are
going to add to the foreclo-
sures we are now facing. We
need to consider drastic
measures to find way to
keep these employees. This
is an emergency situation,"
Maxcy said.
Bates recommended that
the 'county use $5 million
from reserves, the commis-
sion come up with about one
third of the reduction, and
that the constitutional
offices come up. with the
other two-thirds of the
remaining shortfall, but
Stewart ended the meeting
by recommending. that the
constitutional offices like
the Clerk of Courts and the
Sheriff's Office come up
with the $3.3 million differ-
ence if the county uses $5
million from its own
reserves to make up the
shortfall.

be trained to analyze data,
create and test their own
hypotheses and to write
papers for publication in pro-
fessional astronomy journals.
Participants can work
alone on all phases of the
project or they can focus on
one stage and team up with
others.
Citizen science can be
much more than data collec-
tion. Participants often have
real-world experience and/or
advanced degrees in areas
that can be applied to astron-
omy.
"Our goal is to introduce
the public to authentic sci-
ence and at the same time use
this talent to help
astronomers," Henden said.
The lead astronomer for
this project is Dr. Robert
Stencel, the William
Herschel Womble Professor
of Astronomy at Denver
University.
Dr. Bob, as the amateur
astronomy community knows
him, studied the last event in
1982-84 while working at
NASA.
"This is truly an amazing
star system. It contains both a
supergiant star and a mysteri-
ous companion. If the super-
giant was in our solar system,
its diameter would extend to
Earth, engulfing us," Stencel
said.


The companion only
makes its presence known
every 27 years. It is a type of
dark matter, which means
that its presence can be indi-
rectly detected but scientists
don't know what it is.
"To make things even more
fun, we also have some evi-
dence of a substantial mass,
perhaps a large planet, spiral-
ing into the mysterious dark
companion object," Stencel
said. "Observations during
the upcoming eclipse will be
key to understanding this and
predicting what will happen
if the putative planet does
eventually fall into the star."
"Citizen science partici-
pants can be ofall a ges. It is
interesting to note that the
scientific method is a major
concept in the Florida
Sunshine Standards for sci-
ence and is tested on the
Florida Comprehensive
Achievement Test," said
Christopher Stephan, Ed
Specialist at Riverwoods
Field Lab.
Stephan also teaches sci-
ence -at Avon Park Middle
School.
"I plan on using this proj-
ect as a teaching tool for my
secondary science students at
Riverwoods," Stephan said.
"My own son Andrew began
observing variable stars at
age nine and submitted these
observations to


astronomers."
Highlands County resi-
dents are encouraged to par-
ticipate in the Citizen
Science Program.
Riverwoods Field Lab,
part of the Center for
Environmental Studies at
Florida Atlantic University,
will be teaching their
overnight student classes
how to become citizen scien-
tists and participate in this
project on Epsilon Aurigae.
For more information on
the Citizen Sky program in
the Heartland, please contact
Stephan at
rcobservatory @ embarq-
mail.com.
The first Citizen Sky
workshop is being held in
Chicago at the Adler
Planetarium August 5-7,
2009. In attendance will be
professional and amateur
astronomers, as well as edu-
cators from all over the US
and Canada and beyond.
Stephan will be teaching
one of the workshops entitled
"Visual Observing of Epsilon
Aurigae: The Art of Variable
Star Observing".
"My goal is to teach other
educators to teach their stu-
dents .how to be Citizen
Scientists," Stephan said.

Rebecca Turner is with the
American Association of
Variable Star Observers in

Sebring All-Stars blast past competition at state


Ozone obliterates Okeechobee


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
The Sebring Ozone All-
Stars continued their winning
ways Sunday evening in
Marianna to take another step
closer to state tourna-
ment title contention. Seb
After Saturday's 12-
4 win, the Ozone lads 1
met up with district
rival Okeechobee and Okeec
proceeded to put on a
home run clinic, I
pounding six out of
the yard in a 11-0 win.
Alex Forde, who won the
pre-tournament home run
derby, got it started with a
three-run jack in the first

inning.
Jordan Baker then made it
back-to-back dingers with a
solo shot for a quick 4-0 lead.
A single by Easton Davis
kept the inning going one out
later and with two
ing outs and Luis
S Martinez having
reached, J.C. Cobb
went yard to make it a
hobee 7-0 game after one.
I Baker hit his second
tater leading off the
third and Davis put a
charge into one later in the
frame.
Forde finished off the scor-
ing with his second homer, a
two-run shot with Alex


Gomez on, to give him five
RBI on the day.
Once again, the pitching
duties were divided up with
Jonathan Struck going the
first two innings and Baker
taking over for the next two
in the mercy-rule shortened
contest.
"They're just uncon-
scious," head coach Israel
Gomez said. "Everything is
looking good. Our pitching
our defense, our hitting,
we're putting it all together."
With the win, Sebring
earned themselves a bye on
Monday before taking on the
West Seminole National

Bird watchers and wildlife

viewers boost Florida's economy


MyFWC.com
Bird watchers and
wildlife viewers spend $3.1
billion per year in Florida
and support roughly 35,000
jobs.
Mark Kiser, who heads
up the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) 489-
site Great Florida Birding
Trail, said more people trav-
el to Florida to see wildlife
than any other state.
"And' the number is
increasing," he said. "Half
the 800 bird species in this
country occur in Florida, at
least sometime during the
year. In fact, birders have
spotted 504 bird species in
Florida."


Birds from all over the
globe turn up in Florida, and
birders flock here for a
once-in-a-lifetime chance to
see one of the135 exotic
species they could never
hope to see without travel-
.ing to faraway countries.
Kiser said the economic
boost from birding is
enough to encourage com-
munities to conserve their
wild lands so the wildlife
viewers will keep coming.
"You can help birds and
give the economy a shot in
the arm by encouraging bird
watchers," Kiser said. "Bird
watchers spend money at
restaurants, motels, conven-
ience stores and lots of
other businesses."


The FWC has teamed up
with partners in the new Get
Outdoors Florida! cam-
paign, encouraging
Floridians to lure their chil-
dren away from their elec-
tronic toys and rediscover
together the natural Florida
that is such a big attraction
for vacationers.
"A bird book, a pair of
binoculars and a camera are
all it takes to open up the
fascinating world of birding
and wildlife viewing," Kiser
said.

anniversary of the "Sports Talk" show and Lynch will feature five of the original guests
from 1982. Rodney Hollinger, Larry Johnson, Steve Lynch, Gary Rapp and Don
Sisemore will be on hand for interviews, reprising their role as initial guests of the

AAAs slam West Seminole


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
Facing their most daunting
challenge thus far in the
Dixie AAA State Tournament
in Paxton, Sebring's 9- and
10-year old All-Stars not
only survived it, but made a
definitive statement with an
11-4 win over West Seminole
Monday night.
While Sebring was work-
ing to relatively comfortable
wins Saturday and Sunday,
the Seminole squad was
making mince-meat out of
its' foes with a 16-2 win over
Marianna and a 24-4 pasting
of West Volusia American.
"We watched them and
knew they were a good team,
as good a matchup as we'd
Sebring likely see,"
head coach
11 Dean Frazier
S said. "They
W. Seminole have solid
defense, good
4 pitching and
smaller kids
who put the
ball in play."
Things looked a little
shaky early on, however, as
Trey Frazier came on in
relief to face a bases-loaded,
one-out situation in the sec-
ond inning with Sebring up
just 2-1 with a run already in.
Frazier got his first pitch
over for a strike and the ball
was lifted to center field,
looking like a potential sacri-
fice fly with the tying run
likely to score.
But the defense came up
big as Gabe Gomez made the
catch and fired the ball home
to cut down the Seminole
runner at the plate and get
out of the inning.
"Trey coming in and get-
ting us out of that situation
with one pitch, really saved
our butts," Frazier said.
"When Gabe gunned the run-

offense was in high gear on the opening weekend of the
Dixie State AAA tournament.


ner down at the plate, that
pretty much set the tone."
One of those intricacies of
baseball soon followed as the
player who made the great
defensive play is the lead-off
batter the next inning,.
Gomez, fresh off the
inning-ending double play,
lead off the next frame with a
hit, which opened the flood-
gates as Frazier doubled and
with the bases loaded a little
later, Josh Crouch cleared
them with a grand slam.
"We matched up real well
with them, but we had the
bigger sticks," the elder
Frazier said. "They hadn't
faced a team that would chal-
lenge them and when we
started hitting that really
caught them off guard for a
few innings."


West Seminole would try
to battle back, but could only
come up with single runs in
later innings to provide for
the final margin.
Now 3-0 in the state tour-
nament, Sebring was set to
play Callaway, a 12-11 win-
ner over Hardee and 7-4 win-
ner over Wewa, Tuesday
night.
"They're the only other
undefeated team -in the tour-
nameqt," Frazier said. "They
are also a good team, but I
don't know that they've seen
a team like us."

tournament and Friday's

They ran one mile for every fallen mil-
itary member from Operation Enduring
Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
By August 24, 2008 there were over
4,000 service men and women honored
with participants in 10 countries and
more than 43 states.
In all, there were 9,145 registered par-
ticipants, 35,725 miles walked or run and
6 miles climbed in honor of the fallen.

ticipants there will be another walk/run
this year.
Plans for Run for the Fallen -

scheduled for August 22 at Highlands
Hammock State Park in Sebring.
Please come out for a day of fun and
food, a day we can honor those who have
truly given all for us.

military and their families.

LOOKING BACK

15 YEARS AGO
July 18, 1994: Both Avon Park and Sebring secured first-round wins" in the Dixie Youth Majors
District Tournament in Okeechobee. Sebring National rode two Len. Grant solo home runs and no-hit
pitching from Lucia Heston,Wes Chambliss and Eddie Cannon in a 10-1 win over Lake Pladd American
to set up a meeting .with Lake Placid's National team. Power was also the name of the game as Avon
Park blasted four home runs in an 18-1 win over host Okeechobee National. John Paul Heston and Mike
Pollitt combined on a two hitter as Mark Sevigny hit a two-run homer in the first, Will Jacksoh powered
a three-run shot in the third, Pollitt went yard for three in the eight-run fourth and R.W. Elrod joined the
long-ball brigade with a solo knock in the fourth.The win pushed Avon Park along in the winner's brack-
et for a game with Sebring American.

Continued from 1B
squad that edged out West
Seminole American, 10-9,
Monday night.
"That's the team that
beat me last year in the 9-
and 10-year olds," Gomez
said. "But I'm loaded on
this team with my 12-year
olds. especially the pitch-
ing, so it will be a hard test
for them to beat us.
Jonathan (Struck) will get
the start and if he's on,
we're going to ride him the
whole way and we'll still
have Jordan -(Baker) and
Alex (Forde) ready to go."
The importance of
Tuesday's game was also
addressed.
"If we win, we'll be in
the drivers seat," Gomez


'Then we'd be
the only
undefeated
team.'

ISRAEL GOMEZ
Ozone head coach
said. "Then we'd be the
only undefeated team and
anybody that is going to
win it will have to beat us
twice."

players come shuffle with
her. Essie Gouveia and Doris
Harvey came and shuffled
several times and are now
well known among the few
summer shufflers. They also
have made new friends that
they had not known before.
Now is the time for beginners
to be comfortable while they
learn with so few people
around.
Harland does not know the
anniversary date for Jim and
Joan Mondry except 50 years
in August. If you should
know, please let me know.
The grapevine is very short
come summer and it is
already past July 4th so I
need help.
July 4 - Independence Day
- before the fireworks shuf-
flers gathered before the rain
for pin shuffle. Rich said this
game is the best way to
improve your shooting and
also your game. We were
pleased to have Ester
Gouveia and Doris Harvey,
John Bushee, Ed Straub,
Ernie Kelly, Don Rohman,
Rich Elleson and Bill
Gorsuch. Ed Straub took a
bye so we had just two courts
tonight. The pin was hit by
most of us and it went down a
lot more than we wanted.
Sunday finds six players
for ping-pong. Essie and
Doris were two of the six,
with Ed Straub, Bill Gorsuch
and my guess would be Ralph
and Marcia Rhoten. We need
more players for our ping-
pong players. If you want to
learn, come and see what it is
all about.
Zumba is taking some time
off, until September 1, for a
hurt person and I think the
instructor. I won't be able to
start Zumba up again until
September. I fell on vacation
and broke a rib. I wasn't able
to find a replacement instruc-
tor, so I just left the note on
the door that we would
resume after summer.
Zumba is the newest fit-
ness craze. It incorporates
international club music with
exercise. You don't even real-
ize you are working out! You
samba, mambo, merengue
and cha cha your way to fit-
ness! "Exercise in Disguise!"
When we begin again, the
classes are on Tuesday and
Thursday evenings for one
hour starting at 5:30 p.m.
Thank you Bobbie E. Clark.
Monday night finds Lon
Mollins with his grandson
Austin Mollins with him. The
young man said that when he
retired that he would look
into shuffleboard. Essie
Gouveia and Doris Harvey
were the only two ladies

today. These two are better
club members than most for
they play table tennis, play
bridge and also shuffleboard.
John Bushec, Carl Wile, Rich
Elleson, Bill Gorsuch,
Roscoe Burdette and Ernie
Kelly. Two full courts and a
round robin for three.
Wednesday night dancing
is still on even with.people
being gone on vacation. Why
don't you come and see if
you like what you see. We
have a long road to go for a
full house or even a crowded
dance floor. Come and be a
part of a growing dance
group while you still have the
interest.
Pat and Rosella Dell have
been missed and asked for by
a new club member, who
knew they were members.
Retired is not as dull as some
think that it will be. Time
flies the older that one gets.
Wednesday finds line
dancing on the inside and
shuffleboard on the outside.
Shuffleboard has Edna
Myatt, Doris Harvey, Essie
Gouveia, Shirley Wright and
Ruth Parker, were all of the
ladies tonight. John Bushee,
Clarence Wright, Ernie Kelly,
Richard Elleson and Bill
Gorsuch made up the men.
There was one round robin
court, with the odd number of
players tonight.
Winnie Wells went for a
ride stopping in South
Ca olina and then on to
Michigan. This is one whale
of a long ride to take, just for
a person to get some rhubarb.
We are sure she will be
spending time with loved
ones. She is one nice lady
and many sure miss when she
does not shuffle.
The paper said the other
day that Lake Jackson is up
one inch and it took a billion
gallons, of water to do this.
Grass is now green in our
part of the country now,
instead of brown. Hug some-
one today, a stranger if no
one else is handy. Smile more
than once today, also pray a
lot. Find us at 333
Pomegranate Ave. (behind
Sebring Police Station).
Tropical
Harbor
By Barbara Kelleher
LAKE PLACID - Before
I begin, I must confess I
made a boo-boo on the date
that Mustangs and Ladies
Day Out are to be. I wrote the
16th of July which is not
even a Tuesday. The correct
date is Tuesday, July 21. The
men are going to the No
Frills Grill in Lake Placid,
the ladies will be going to the
Twin Oaks Tea Room on N.
Commerce. Our Fourth of
July activities started with
the men serving 70 residents
and friends a wonderful pan-
cake breakfast. At 10:30, we
had nine people decorate
their golf carts -and ride up
and down the streets of
Tropical Harbor. They deco-
rated with American flags
and banners and some even

dressed their little dogs for
the occasion. The residents
that bought tickets for the all-
day affair voted for the fol-
lowing: First place ribbon
went to Terry McKamey, sec-
ond place ribbon went to Jim
and Louann Steffen and third
place went to Ed Crosner.
Jim Witten was the coordina-
tor of the golf cart parade.
The afternoon some played
their favorite board game or
cards, others went swim-
ming. They sold over 120
tickets for the Southern Fried
Chicken dinner which began
at 5:30 p.m. All that attended
brought a dish to go with the
chicken or a dessert. There
was food galore. Following
the meal, we had entertain-
ment. Donna Frye coordinat-
ed this wonderful patriotic
musical program. Some sang
solos, others sang in the
group. A flag was held that
represented each branch of
the service. It was truly a
patriotic day celebration that
made you proud to be an
American. In the evening, at
dusk, residents gathered at
the clubhouse to see the fire-
works. Ice cream sundaes
were available to top off the
evening. For those that did
not want to go outside, they
were able to view the show
on the wide wall TV and see
the show at the Capitol or
switch from time to time to
see the Boston Pops. What a
great Fourth of July.
Monday morning coed cof-
fee was July 6. Our coffee
makers were Arlene and
Robert Clouston. Our emcee
was Andy Anderson who
opened the meeting with a
great mystery joke. Andy
introduced our park manager,
George Susco who informed
the residents that there will
be no smoking in the pool
area. Also the exercise room
is closed because there is a
broken water pipe some-
where and no one seems to be
able to trace where it is com-
ing from. Jody Susco will
have a little work shop to
show various persons how to
turn on the wide -screen TV.
Andy asked if we had any
guests. Helen Burgan stood
up and introduced her daugh-
ter and granddaughter visit-
ing from South Carolina.
Next Andy asked Bonnie
Allen for a Sunshine report.
She told the group that she
has four sheets for them to
sign for the following: Harry
Krebs, Melvin Potson, Toni
Price and Fred Jenkins who
once lived in the park. She
also read a thank you letter
,from Keith Clouston, Bob
and Arlene's son, thanking
the residents for their prayers
and well wishes following his
back surgery. Andy read off
the names of residents cele-
brating their birthdays July 1-
7. We all sang Happy
Birthday to Arlene Clouston,
Darwin Seymour, Joann
Lindgren and Charlene
Flamme and Ed Cromer.
There was no one present for
their anniversary. Activities

our thoughts and prayers for
their recovery. They are
Melvin Potson, Toni Price,
Harry Krebs, Fred Jenkins,

Teague and Doris Barriga.
Bonnie read a lovely thank
you note from Keith

all the signatures really lifted
his spirits. We had no ladies

ebrating their birthday or

in regards to the Twin Oaks
Room, where the ladies lunch
out will be held on July 21.
Before closing the meeting,

ly poem entitled "If I Had My
