County to

decide

village

rate

Tuesday

By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Highlands
County commissioners will
vote to keep the current the
millage rate of 7.1 for
Highlands County during
their meeting on Tuesday.
The millage rate is the tax
rate used to calculate your ad
valorem taxes. One mil
equals $1 for every $1,000 of
taxable property value.
Even though the county is
still struggling to come up
with a solution to its budget
shortfalls, Office of
Management and Budget
Director Burnis Gainer, at the
direction of the commission
during its budget workshops,
will present the current
request for village certifica-
tion for approval during the
upcoming meeting.
Once a millage rate is set,
it is easy for the commission
to lower the rate further, but
"extraordinary efforts" must
be done to increase the rate
further in a fiscal year.
County Administrator
Michtel Wright laid out sev-
eral options to the commis-
sioners-atitheir last meeting,
including increasing the mill-
age rate .282 mils to 7.38,
taking pay decreases across
the board, and asking the
sheriff's office to come up
with an additional $1.5 mil-
lion in cuts.
Wright offered the tax
increase as a means to help
cover the county's budget
shortfalls, but commissioners
stated that they were against
raising taxes in such a bad
fiscal year.
"Every dollar we use to
balance this from our.savings
account, you are going to b6
short next year,". Wright said.
One of the concerns,
according to Wright, is the
year-end numbers that the
state will. commit to in
November.
But commissioners were
not please with the aspect of
raising taxes because of the
economy.
"I will not support a tax
increase," Commission
Chairwoman Barbara Stewart
plainly stated at the meeting
on July 27.

Story Of Survival

Not only is Stanley Carr, now 72, cancer free for going on five years, but he can still play the bagpipes though he lost
half of his left lung in getting well. 'It's not so important about what's happening, but how you respond to it, he said.
'That's the important part.'

Stanley Carr has gone from the brink of

death to a new lease on life and love


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.ltffley@newssun.com
SEBRING
hen Stanley Carr
received a diag-
nosis of Stage 3
advanced lung
cancer in January of 2004,
at a time when his beloved
wife and mother of his three
children was dying of a neu-
rologidal disease similar to
Parkinson's, he thought his
life had come to an end.
He had to fight off waves
of despair, frequently unable
to, sleep as he worried about
what would happen to his
wife - who was bedridden
and helpless - and face his
own mortality.
But his son Charles
* researched cancer centers,
discovered the Moffitt
Cancer Center in Tampa,
and Carr made an appoint-
ment.
Moffitt is one of only 40
hospitals in the country, and
the only one in Florida, that
is designated a comprehen-
sive cancer center by the
National Cancer Institute..
Carr's oncologist, Dr.
Gerold Bepler, who headed
a team of about 35 members
including surgeons, social
workers and nurses - all
dedicated to helping Carr

Gerold Bepler has been an oncologist with the Moffitt

oncologist since 1983, drawn to the field because it was
newly emerging and fascinating, combining the study of.
genes, viruses and the immune system.

In a telephone interview,
Bepler explained that most
adults are wary of such tri-
als. Patients worry they will
end up the control subject
and receive only placebos,
instead of actual treatment.
In fact, Bepler said,
placebos are "rarely, rarely"
used in such situations. The


key, he explained, is to
improve standard treat-
ments, which means the
.control patients receive the
standard care, while the bal-
ance of the patients receive
the new therapy.
In order to become a stan-
dard treatment itself, the
new therapy has to show it

Been diagnosed
.with cancer? Get
a second opinion,
By CHRISTOPHER TIFFLEY
christdpher.tuffley@newssun.comn
SEBRING - When faced
with a diagnosis of any kird
of cancer, both Stanley Carr,
a survivor, and Gerold
Bepler, an oncologist at the
Moffitt Cancer Center in'
Tampa, recommend getting a
second opinion.
"'People become extremely
scared and rush into thera-
py," Bepler said.in a tele-
phone interview. "Sometimes
other treatments are more..--
appropriate then the first one
offered."
Lung cancer, the disease
Carr had to battle, has its
own special dangers.
Lungs are a large organ
that allows for a reduction of
function without,any r6tice-
able effect, and have no
nerves inside them.:
This means, Beplerl
explained, that symptoms
come "rather late" because
an individual typically is
'totally unaware that anything
is going wrong. Tumors can
be quite large before they
are discovered, and then
often only by accident.

Suspected cases of A(H1N1) at Camp Sparta reported


By ROMONA WASHINGTON
editor@newssun.com ,
SEBRING - Five children in town
for a fun week at Camp Sparta were
picked up Friday and returned hotime
to Broward County, but not before
coming down with what health offi-
cials believe to be H1N1, better
known as swine flu.
Thomas J. Moran, planning con-
sultant with the Highlands County
Health Department, said Saturday
that no one locally appears to be
infected from the camp incident. A


small number of Camp Sparta person-
nel had been in contact with the five�
children. They have been advised to
watch for flu-like symptoms and not
be in contact with future campers.
According to Moran, a South
Florida faith-based group had rented
the Camp Sparta, facility for last
week. The five children became ill
with flu-like symptoms andan elevat-
ed temperature. Two of the five had
been taken to emergency room in
Broward County. They were advised
that by the clinical findings they


more than likely had the A(H1N1),
virus.
The three other children were see-
ing their private physicians Saturday.
Moran said all other campers were
picked up Saturday by their parents at
the normal end of the camp event.
Out of the 104 campers attending this
event, about a dozen were exhibiting
some symptoms such as coughing
and were voluntarily separated from
the other campers as a precaution.
Moran said the camp counselors
were excellent in taking- care of those


who had flu-like symptoms .
He said since this is not the time of
year for cases of seasonal flu, there is
a high probability that flu-like symp-
toms are the result of the A(H1N1)
virus.
The Highlands County Health
Department administrator, director of
nursing and emergency planner
responded to Camp Sparta to provide
handout information on the A(H1N1)
Influenza to the parents picking up
their children Saturday. They also

Drug dealers,
purchasers run
into trouble in
Lemon-MLK
intersection
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.comn
SEBRING - A man with
a lengthy arrest record was
again taken into custody
Thursday evening on a war-
rant after he allegedly sold
marijuana to undercover
officers.
Justin Lewis, 23, of
Sebring was charged with
possession of marijuana
with intent to sell and pos-
session of more than 20
grains of marijuana.
The incident reportedly
happened on June 11 at the
intersection of Martin
Luther King Boulevard and
Lemon Street.
Undercover detectives
with the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office Special
Operations Unit and an
assisting agency; whose
name was redacted from the
report, were in, the area to
conduct an undercover buy
operation.
They posed as street-
level drug purchasers and
drove an undercover vehicle
that had been previously
equipped with digital video
and audio recording devices
for the purpose of capturing
such transactions.
When they arrived in the
area, they were allegedly
solicited by Lewis.
One of the detectives
asked him for a "dime of
hard" and a "dime of weed,"
which is street slang for $10
worth of crack cocaine and
$10 worth of marijuana, the
report stated.
"Lewis acknowledged
(the detective's) request and
obtained the $20 from him,"
the arrest report stated.
After Lewis walked a few
feet away, he said he was
out of hard and returned to
the car with two "dime"
bags containing suspected
marijuana, the report stated.
The detectives left the
area and placed the suspect-
ed marijuana into an evi-
dence bag. which was later
tested with an alleged posi-
tive result for marijuana.
Lewis, who has a slew of
charges dating back to 2004
including theft, burglary,
resisting arrest, and lewd
and' lascivious conduct in
the presence of someone
younger than 16, remained
in the Highlands County
Jail on $30,000 bond.
Just days later on June
16, less than a block up the
road from the same inter-
section, a 25-year-old
Sebring man called 911
because he was robbed at
gunpoint when allegedly
trying to buy marijuana.
According to reports he
parked his vehicle along the
700 biock of Lemon Avenue
and asked Michael Jackson
III, 14, of Sebring, for a bag
of marijuana.
Jackson searched for
something in the grass in an
alleyway behind 777 Lemon
St. and returned, asking the
man for his phone. .
When the man resisted,
Jackson snitched the phone
out, of his hand and walked
back over to the alleyway.
Reachin..'-. n, he pulled
out a gun an'"then pointed
it in (the victim's) face," the
report stated.
Jacksofn was charged with
assault with intent to com-
mit a felony, possession of a
weapon by a convicted
felon, and robbery by sud-,
den 'snatching with 'a
firearm.
The HCSO records


department was unable to
find out what the minor's
felony conviction was for or
the date he was charged.
Jackson was arrested on
June 16 and released to the
Department of Juvenile
Justice, but was arrested
again on July 24 when he
failed to appear for a court
hearing.
He is currently awaiting
his next court date while
being held in Polk County
by the Department of
Juvenile Justice.

Charity needs donations to help

kids need help to race for life


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - While they only make the
trip to Sebring a few times a year, the Rev.
Stephen Zoeller relies on the area for his
charity work-
Zoeller, known to some as the "Race
Rev," is the head of Zoeller Ministries, a
non-profit Christian group out of Fort Myers
that conducts the "Kids Racing for Life"
event every year at the Sebring Raceway.
"We do this for the love of God and chil-
dren," Zoeller-said.
The event takes families that have termi-
nally ill children to major racetracks, like
Sebring International Raceway, and lets them
experience the thrill of the track.
The child and their family get personally
guided tours, including the master control
center, communications center, pits and pad-
dock-area, arid children get to take rides
around the track in exotic sports cars.
"The highlight of the weekend is the hour
the\ get to ride around the track," Zoeller
said.
The event is centered around the track but
the three days provide time for the families
to socialize and relax - which is much
needed.
"These families are going through one of
the most devastating events that a family
could face, having a child dying from or
fighting cancer," Zoeller said. "The cost of
medical expenses devastates many families
and they end up with marital problems,
financial problems that includes losing their

No charges filed


in, explosive prank


in Avon Park


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK - Avon
Park police and fire depart-
ments were dispatched
Friday - afternoon in
response to a small explo-
sive being thrown out a
vehicle window behind Big
T Tire.
According to Avon Park
Sgt. Jake Brantton, the
whole deal was a just a
prank.
Just after 3 p.m. witness-
es reported that a loud
explosion shook windows
up to two city blocks away
and prompted multiple calls
to 911.
"It sounded like some-
thing blew up," local resi-
dent Chad Mathis said.
"We were sitting inside,
and the explosion rattled
the windows. I thought at
first that the sonic boom
from the shuttle was the
cause, but then I realized
that the shuttle landed earli-
er in the morning. The
noise was pretty loud, and I
live almost two blocks
away," Mathis said.


The "bomb" was under *
investigation by the Avon
Park Police Department
and the State Fire
Marshal's office within
minutes.
According to Brantton, a
suspect drove by the rear
entrance to Big T Tire
around 3 p.m. and threw
something from the win-
dow that exploded and left
a small hole in the ground
by the rear fence.
After the fact, it turned
out that the unidentified
suspect, who was a cus-
tomer at Big T was just
playing a joke on the work-
ers there.
Witnesses at the scene
identified a gray Jeep with
a dark top driving by and
throwing something from
the window at the pallets
that sit out behind the stor-
age areas.
No charges were filed,
and owners of Big T decid-
ed not to press charges,
according to Brantton.
"It turned out to be noth-
ing more than a prank and
fireworks," Brantton said.


SWFWMD has first monthly
permit meeting on Wednesday


Special to the News-Sun
BARTOW - In an effort
to afford the public an
opportunity to comment on
pending permits prior to a
final decision being made,
the Southwest Florida
Water Management District
will begin holding monthly
public meetings for pending
permit applications.
The first meeting is set
for 9 a.m. Wednesday at the
district's Tampa service
Office.
The meetings were
developed in response to
the passage this year of
Senate Bill 2080 that
changed the process by
which water resource per-
mits are approved by the
state's five water manage-
ment districts. Senate Bill
2080 directs the governing
boards of the water man-
agement districts to dele-
gate their authority to
approve permits to their


FLORIDA


executive directors.
"Public input is an
important part of the per-
mitting process. We devel-
oped these monthly meet-
ings to ensure that the pub-
lic would continue to have
the opportunity to express
their views about pending
permits prior to any final
decisions being made," said
David L. Moore, district
executive director.
An agenda for each meet-
ing with pending permit
information will be posted
on the district's Web site at
WaterMatters.org/calendar.
As an alternative to com-
menting at the meeting, the
public may also submit
comments on a permit
application by writing to
David L. Moore, executive
director, Southwest Florida

Cancer survivor has been to the edge

and back, and life is better than ever


Continued from page 1A
the older one.
Repler added that treat-
ment of child leukemia has
made tremendous progress
over the years because more
than 90 percent of families
typically agree to allow their
children to be included in tri-
als. But with adults, given the
fear of becoming a guinea
pig, only about 5 percent take
part in new treatments.
The worst result, Bepler
said, is that treatment for
adults has not advanced as
much as it has with children.
In Carr's case, because he
agreed to be a part of the
clinical trial, he received a
new form of chemotherapy,
which shrunk a golf ball-
sized tumor in his left lung
enough so it could be
removed.
About a year after his
diagnosis, and after several
setbacks - cancer cells
fouhd in lymph nodes and a
new cancer altogether in the
right lung - Carr was found
to be cancer free in January
of 2005.
He has remained cancer
free since then. The defini-
tion for a successful treat-
ment is if a person is cancer-
free for five years, then that
individual is considered
cured.
That anniversary will occur
for Carr in January of 2010.
"I firmly believe I would-
n't be here today, but for
Moffitt," Carr said. "'If it's
fixable, we'll fix it,' they
said, and they helped with
the emotional side as well as
the physical."
He spoke of the three
months he spent at Moffitt's
Hope Lodge while undergo-
ing treatments, and of the
constant stream of family
who came and went, includ-
ing his son Charles, who put
his own life on hold to be
with Carr for six months.
Carr grinned, almost mis-


chievously, "I just did as I
was told. They told me I
should eat five to 10 servings
of fruits and vegetables
everyday, I went right out
and got a juicer and have five
servings before 9 a.m."
But surviving cancer phys-
ically and moving on emo-
tionally are two very differ-
ent things.
Especially when another
person is involved. Carr's
wife's health had failed to the
point where he had no choice
but to put her in a nursing
home. Even though he visited

A


'I've learned there
are only two big
deals in life -
when your born
and when you die
- the rest is just
circumstances.'

STANLEY CARR
cancer survivor
her three times a day, he was
riddled with guilt and grief.
When she died it wasn't a
relief, but a terrible loss.
Despite having recovered
himself, he spent a great deal
of his time remembering the
dark days he endured.
Without realizing what was
happening, he withdrew into
his home.
His children continued to
worry about him, especially
when he couldn't seem to
shake his depression and
sense of isolation.
He said he remembers one


conversation with his daugh-
ter when he told her he just
wished he could meet a nice
lady.
"Well, you're never going
find one in your own home,"
she replied tartly.
Slowly he began to think
differently, finally under-
standing that "it's not so
important about what's hap-
pening, but how you respond
to it. That's the important
part."
He began to get out, most-
ly gding to dances held for
seniors in the community.
At first he was nervous.
"What am I doing here?" he
thought to himself at one
point. "It's like being with
my parents."
Now at the same time,
Alice "Bennie" Malloy was
going through a difficult time
of her own. She had just lost
her dearly loved husband
after years of happy mar-
riage. Like Carr, she was
holed up in her house.
Malloy had a grief coun-
selor who helped write a
wish list of things she wanted
to do. One of those things
was to learn how to dance.
With her counselor's sup-
port she finally ventured out.
"Lo and behold," Malloy
said, "there was Stanley, and
he was a wonderful dancer.
"The first time we danced
together I stepped all over his
feet. The instructor tried to
teach me and I stepped all
over him too.
"I spent that first night
saying, 'Oh, I'm sorry; oh,
I'm sorry' over and over
again. I had to keep wiping
my hands, I was so nervous."
Malloy paused, looking
fondly over at-Carr, "We've
been dancing ever since."
Now Malloy and Carr are
together, both amazed at this
second chance of happiness.
They keep busy, travel often
and, of course, dance every
chance they get.'
In the mornings, sitting in

Alice "Bennie" Malloy was grieving for her late husband
when her grief counselor talked her into taking up ballroom
dancing, something she had always wanted to do. That is
how she met Stanley Carr who was grieving over the loss of
his wife, but also filled with joy having recovered from lung
cancer that almost killed him. The two of them of now rel-
ish every day, making the most of every moment.


the quiet, in his chair by the
window, watching the sunrise
and the birds swoop in the
sky, Carr said, "I think of sit-
ting in Moffitt, overwhelmed
with fear. It really is a mira-
cle. My life has turned totally
around and I don't think I've
ever been happier. I've had
such a huge change in atti-
tude. We're here such a short
while, I'm determined to
make the most of every
moment.
"I've learned there are
only two big deals in life -
when you're born and when
you die - the rest is only
circumstances.


"I've been to the edge of
the cliff, actually ready to go,
.and then I pulled back and
everything is better than
before."

For example, Carr would
never have known about a
tumor the size of a goJf ball
in his left lung if he hadn't
caught the flu.
One of the only ways to
diagnose lung cancer early is
to have regular C-T scans
and look for differences over
time. But this is an expen-
sive option and probably
should be reserved for indi-
viduals at high risk.
, Carr said 85 percent of
lung cancers occur to people
who smoke. That means,
however, that 15 percent of
lung cancers occur to people
who never did.
Carr himself had been a
smoker, but quit in 1968. He
was diagnosed in 2004.
Whatever, you do, Carr
said, "Don't give up trying
to quit."

'Sometimes other
treatments are
more appropriate
then the first one

EDITORIAL & OPINION


News-Sun * Sunday, August 2, 2009


Read what you


are voting on


It is a running joke that
Congress doesn't read the
bills it passes. You've seen
those bills - a block of paper
larger than the last Harry
Potter book - and the uni-
versal shrug Congress gives
you when they say, "Don't
have time to read it."
Congresscritters use this
known problem to slip little
goodies for themselves and
their constituents into said
bills. Goodies they know
wouldn't stand a snowball's
chance in Highlands County
during August of getting
passed standing on their
lonesome. It's why they
don't worry about it - they
make it work for them.
Normally the whole not
reading of bills is good for a
few cynical jokes and mov-
ing on. But I have to admit
that the whole idea is some-
what grating on my nerves at
the moment.
Maybe it's because I'm at
the tail end of jet lag from
my recent vacation. Maybe
it's because I've cast a dis-
mayed look at the stack of
work I have to catch up on.
Maybe it's because my
chocolate levels are low.
Or, more likely, it's
because of a statement that
"John Conyers, House
'Judiciary Chairman and
'Michigan Democrat, made
'before the National Press
Club recently.
He said, and I quote:
"What good is reading the
bill if it's a thousand pages
and you don't have two days
and two lawyers to find out
what it means after you read
i the bill?"
OK. This isn't a real ques-
tion, is it? I mean, he isn't
Serious, is he?
SAnd by the way, I only
mention what party he's a
member of for identification
!purposes. Republicans prob-
- ably share this philosophy,
and I'm just as disgusted
with them as with the
Democrats.
To finish putting this in
context, the bill he's talking
about is the health care bill.
'The one President Obama
says we need yesterday. The
one that's supposed to
revamp the system.
Yeah. They're not gonna
'read that one, just vote on it.
,Am I the only one who's
thinking that qualifies as a


Laura's

bad idea?
Let me try to explain my
view here: say I get a con-
tract for a book. After I fin-
ish jumping up and down
and screaming, I have a
choice: I can sign it without
reading it, or asking anyone
else to read it. Or I can sit
down and try to figure it out,
asking questions.
Book contracts aren't
1,000 pages. Even so, 12-20
pages of legalese isn't light
reading. If you are going to
fully understand what's
going on, you have to read it
carefully. And there will be
things you won't understand,
so you will have to enlist the
aid of an agent or intellectu-
al properties lawyer.
If I sign the contract with-
out reading it, I may give up
all rights to that book. I may
give up significant payout.
And once I sign it, I'm
stuck. I have to live with the
consequences.
You know how much sym-
pathy I'd get from fellow
writers? Not much. Even if it
was a bad contract, if I
chose to sign it without read-
ing it, it's my career. I get to
live with the consequences,
good and bad.
Now Congress is looking
to vote on the health care
bill, a kind of signing a con-
tract, without reading it. If it
passes, then it's law, and we
are stuck with it. Too bad we
missed a part that's bad -
hey, it's passed, it's too late.
If Congress wants to
change their health care
without knowing the details,
that's their business. But it's
not just theirs, it's yours and
mine as well. And if they're
going to mess with.it, I want
them to know exactly what's
going to happen.
Yeah, Representative
Conyers. Take two days.
Take a week if you need to.
Read the bill. Know what
you're putting into law. Then
decide whether or not to
vote on it.
Is that really too much for
the American people to ask?

Have mercy on the
displaced workers
Editor:
Troubled times have transformed the
lives of many today, as they have
throughout history. During the Great
Depression, suddenly penniless fathers,
unable to provide for the household,
leapt to their certain deaths from tall
buildings rather than face a hungry fam-
ily with news of an unquestionably
bleak future.
Sadly, life standing in the soup line
seemed unbearable for the once thriving
American worker. Competition for what
work was available became violent and
tested the very humanity of the once
humble, peaceful father and provider for
a family that awaited his hard-earned
provisions with eagerness.
Life was tough and not always did the
tough survive. People were hungry and
desperate. Any promise of income was
not to be ignored and actually welcomed
with great enthusiasm. This catapulted
the "snake oil" industry into extraordi- *.
naryy success. Preying upon the hopeless
became an industry.
Today, layoffs are routine, and often
in large numbers. No one's job is secure.
From the high end of the corporate food
chain down to the average "front line"
worker, people are showing up Monday
morning to a job that has been eliminat-
ed.
To add insult to injury, fuel prices are
climbing. The rise in fuel expenses cre-
ates an obviously added strain upon job-
seeking individuals driving up. and down
the highway, submitting applications.
Desperate citizens are selling all they
own just for gas money.
We are in terrible shape America.
Approximately one in 10 of us are with-
out jobs. We need a miracle, and we
need it fast.
I heard a knock at the door today. Not
expecting company, I reluctantly,
answered. It was a man attempting to
sign.up households for a large, very well
known television service provider. The
man was under obvious distress physi-
cally as he had been walking the neigh-
borhood for hours in 95-degree heat
with no water.
I invited him inside for some cold
water. He needed a break from the blis-
tering heat. He accepted my offer with
great appreciation. I could not resist
asking about the situation, mainly how
his sales were doing throughout my
neighborhood. The man began to cry.
When asked as to why the sudden
tears, he explained that I was the first
person to offer him some cold water,
and much needed relief from the mid-
day heat. He said I was the first to ever
show human compassion toward his fel-
low man. He consumed three bottles of
water, and was given two quarts of
Gatorade to take along with him.
He seemed oblivious to the early
signs of heat stroke, so I asked if he had
ever worked outside .before. "No," he
replied, but this was the only job avail-
able for him. He jumped on the opportu-
nity, soon with great regret. .
He gets no base salary. No sale, no

money. He can walk for seven days, 12
hours per day, and not bring home a
dime. He can sign up hundreds, as any-
one is willing to "roll the dice," to see if
they pass the approval process. Few of
them do, and if they are not approved,
his time with them was spent in vain.
Heat, humidity, angry dogs, slammed
doors, threats by paranoid drug dealers
to leave the property or be shot, all for
nothing. He is required to use his own
worn-out vehicle, own gas, and was
given one T-shirt with the company logo
to identify himself with, avoiding confu-
siofi as to why he is at someone's door.
Each additional shirt would cost him
$17.
He had made one approved sale in
two weeks. Once a sale is approved, he
then has to wait getting paid, as the
check is not issued until the installation
is complete and service at the address is
initiated. One approved sale generates
$40 for him, and can take weeks to
make it to his pocket. Sixty hours of
walking in the heat for $40. ...
America,think about this the next
time someone "inconveniences" you
with an unexpected knock at the door, it
just might be Jesus testing your empathy
for a suffering soul.

The state of healthcare
Editor:,
I've heard it said that "America has
the best healthcare system in the world."
Well, it's true that we have the most
expensive system in the world, and, for
those to whom money is no object, the
depth and breadth of medical treatment
is staggering. For those of us who have
insurance, we cost the system about
$6,000 per person, per year; that's
$24,000 for a family of four, more than
the federal poverty level. If you are rich
and famous like Michael Jackson, you
can get your own, full-time, personal
doctor and illegal medications.
Despite the amount of money spent,
though, the average level of care for the
average person, is surprisingly low,
when compared to other industrialized'
nations. Some studies say we provide'
among the lowest level of care for our


citizens. And for the 50 million people
or so who don't have any healthcare
insurance, the prospects are poor indeed.
Consider John Doe, a fictitious
patient, but representative of several
patients I see every week. John had an
accident at work, and he filed a work-
er's comp claim. Hisboss fired him, .
claiming that he missed too many days
of work, and was unproductive when he
was at work. Of course, his employer
could have given any reason, because
this is a 'right to work fire' state ,but his
employer didn't want to have to pay
unemployment compensation.
OK, sure, John milked the worker's
comp system a little too much, and
stayed 'sick' a little longer than he
should have. Did he know he was on the
verge of getting fired anyway? Or was
he just afraid that, if he came back to
work too early, and couldn't perform,
that his boss would fire him then? We'll
never know.
Now John has significant medical
problems, no longer has any healthcare
insurance, and cannot afford to go to a
doctor (he lost his job and has, no
income). Not only that, he can't even
get a job, because his medical condition
prevents employers from considering,.
hiring him. John thinks he might be dia-
betic, also, and has been complaining
about the occasional 'spots' in front of
his eyes (possible sign of high blood
pressure).
He won't go to the doctor in the early
stages of disease, of course, or to get
help improving his current health,
because he already owes the hospital a
few thousand bucks from the last time
he went to the ER, and. he knows just
the initial visit, with testing is likely
going to run him upwards of $500
(which he doesn't have anyway). So,
he's stuck between a rock and a hard
place; the next time he gets health care
, will likely be when he strokes out or is
in a diabetic coma, and requires a 911
call, intensive care, and a month in
rehab.
You and I will be paying for those
costs, you betcha. It's coming out of our
tax dollars, right now. This is the 'state
of healthcare' today in America.

Library offers
seminar on
hurricane meal
preparation
LAKE PLACID - At 2
p.m. Wednesday, the Friends
of Lake Placid Memorial
Library are sponsoring a free
seminar facilitated by former
caterer Jo Ann Hatton that
will show just how easy it is
to prepare tasty meals using
pantry items and no electric-
ity.
Bad storms and their big
sibling, the hurricane, are a
fact of life if you live in the
southeastern United States.
It is not unusual to be with-
out electricity for a period of
time. It's wise to have a gen-
erator or a backyard barbe-
cue to prepare food, but not
everyone can afford a gener-
ator or is inclined toward
backyard grilling. That's
why it might even be wiser
to learn how easy it is to
prepare food without elec-
tricity.
Hatton plans to demon-
strate the preparation of a
breakfast, lunch and dinner
using recipes from a book,
"The Storm Gourmet,"
which was written by
Daphne Nikolopoulos.
Seating is limited to 15
people. Call 699-3705 if you
would like to reserve a seat.

some rain involved as inclement weather along the Arkansas-Texas border forced the opening ceremonies indoors. Check

Memorial Saturday


Continued from 1B
that real well for us.
"The last few years, we've
had to use both the Turtle
and Deer Run courses and
have had between 200 and
240 golfers," Lovett contin-
ued. "We hope to get the
same sort of support this
year. We have 45 committed
teams so far and need about
60. It's for the kids, so we
need golfers to sign up."
Preceding the day of golf,
a mixer will be held at the
Sun 'N Lake Clubhouse
Friday, Aug. 7, beginning at
6:30 p.m., and will feature
music, bar and a trove of
hors d'oeuvres.
At the mixer, the various
raffle items and silent auc-
tion memorabilia can be
perused, for the drawings
and bids being revealed at
the post-tournament lunch-
eon Saturday.
Autographed memorabil-
ia feature the likes of Tim
Tebow, Percy Harvin, Urban
Meyer, Bobby Bowden,
among state football stand-
outs, as well as golf greats
Gary Player, Phil Mickelson
and Tiger Woods.
With it's great setting,
organization, play and fun,
the event has grown into
one of the largest one-day


'It's for the kids,

so we need golfers

to sign up.'

Tournament organizer

events in central Florida
and, as with all the Firemen
do, is an ever-growing way
to give back.

tary project that Progress
Energy undertook to con-
nect the various conserva-
tion areas included in the
DEP agreement. Together,
they will make a natural
buffer of nearly 1,500 acres
along the eastern and
southern edges of the Hines
Energy Complex.
The 95-acre conservation
project at Tiger Bay East is
expected to finish by the
end of July. Since January,
Progress Energy has
restored and connected
wetlands, removed exotic,
nuisance species of plants
and is now planting nearly
175,000 native shrubs and
trees and more than 30
acres of forest grasses.
In the process of rebuild-
ing the habitat, Hines staff
members have seen the
return of alligators, bob-
cats, deer, hogs, eagles,


ospreys, spoonbills and
turkeys, among other ani-
mals.
The native wildlife had
disappeared when the prop-
erty was mined by the prior
owners.
"Progress Energy is'
proud to be creating valu-
able habitats for the preser-
vation of these and other
Florida species, which will
thrive noW," said Tommy
Oneal, environmental
health and safety specialist
at Hines and Tiger Bay
plants. "We are committed
to being a good neighbor."

Carolina jasmine is a hardy vine to use in your garden


Vines are a great way to enhance
a garden. They provide a beautiful
backdrop to lower growing plants
and they can cover a variety of sur-
faces and add color and character
to an area. Carolina jasmine
(gelsemium sempervirens), a native
vine, is a great way to enhance the
looks of most gardens. It adds
color to the landscape and the
scent the flowers produce is very
pleasant.
The evergreen plant is very
appealing. The color of the leaves
is a rich green and the contrasting
yellow flower clusters are extreme-
ly attractive and fragrant. The plant
blooms from late winter to early
spring. When placed in a shady
spot, the plant will grow quite
aggressively and can climb on trel-
lises, walls, fences and even shrubs
and trees. It can reach heights of
'20 feet in an effort to reach the
sunlight.
When growing in the wild,
Carolina jasmine grows along
streams, rivers, lowlands and other
shady areas. Although the plant
seems to like moisture, it is consid-.
ered drought tolerant. The vine will
drop leaves and look somewhat
raggedy until adequate moisture is
received by the roots, but will con-
tinue to live. It will also tolerate
very cold temperatures.
Carolina jasmine is a hardy plant
and does best when planted where


the roots can
, ' receive shade but
the leaves and
stems receive
some suri. It is
best to place the
plant in an area,
where it won't
choke.out other
nearby vegeta-
News From tion. It is some-
The what aggressive
Watershed and is a typical
Corine re vine that will
grow on nearby
objects such as plants.
When planting, keep in mind
that the vine can grow 10 to 20 feet
tall if supported. If it is left to
grow without vertical support, it
will form a 3- to 4-foot-high dense
thicket. If height and vertical
attractiveness is the goal, it is best
to secure young tendrils to struc-
tures when planted. This trains
future growths to climb trellises,
arbors and tree trunks. If a flowing
look is desired, the plant will cas-
cade down the sides of pots or con-
tainers without vertical support.
The plant can be propagated by
seed, by cuttings in the spring or it
can be air layered. Some popular
places for planting are around mail
boxes, next to a chain link fence or
a trellis. Be careful when choosing
the site for the vine because the
flowers, leaves and roots of the


plant are poisonous and may harm
children, livestock and pets. The
sap is toxic and when working with
the plant, it is important to wear
gloves and wash your hands after
handling it.
Overall, Carolina jasmine is a
great choice for gardeners who
want a hardy plant that will either
climb with support or flow down-
ward without it. The beautiful yel-
low blooms will add a splash of
color and the dark green leaves
will be a great addition to the
foliage in the area.
This plant, along with many
other varieties of native species,
will be offered at the Air Potato
Exchange Day at the Agricultural
Center on Jan. 9, 2010. All you
have to do is bring in at least one
bag of air potato bulbs and you
walk away with a free plant. If you
don't know what an air potato is,
don't worry; seminars and work-
shops will be offered in the fall.
For more information on this
program, watch for advertisements
about the upcoming workshops or
call our office at 402-6545.
