that wasn't the case.

From chickens to

Enrollment event set for Saturday

trey.christy@nkwssun.com
SEBRING - The 4-H organiza-
tion, which serves nearly 200 of
Highlands County's youth with pro-
grams and hands-on activities, begins
it open enrollment for the 2009-10
school year on Saturday.
Children ages 5-18 can participate
in the organization and a wide range
of programs.
"From entomology to sewing to
fishing, there is such a vast array (of
programs) you can't name them all,"
said April Butler, 4-H agent for
Highlands County.
To raise money, the group was
even busy over the summer, literally


planting the seeds of a program that
will raise a good amount of money
come October.
A you-pick pumpkin patch is the
most recent addition to the 4-H
grounds near the Bert J. Harris Jr.
Agricultural Center off of U.S. 27.
The center will also host the open
enrollment from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on
Saturday.
Students in the program will be
there with information and more than
a few stories as to why they keep
coming year after year.
For incoming SHS freshman
Garrett Martinez, 14, it started when
he was 5. Having kids start 4-H at the
youngest age is not uncommon.

Like most youngsters, he started
out raising and showing rabbits and
chickens and by age 10 had moved up


to horses and steers.
"I'm the large animal guy" now, he

By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - County Administrator
Michael Wright informed commis-
sioners via e-mail that the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection has closed their investiga-
tion of the Howerton Fill Dirt Scandal.
In an e-mail to the board dated Aug.
6. Wright states, "In meeting with
FDEP officials on another topic this
morning, I inquired as to the status of
the Howerton fill investigation.
Bottom line is the case is closed with
no criminal finding, no civil finding,
no wetland issue, and in fact, no issue
at all."
'But Wright's e-mail does not
explain who was responsible for giv-
ing away hundreds of loads of unspec-
ified materials transported to what has
become known as the Howerton Pit. -
In an e-inail to the board dated Jan.

SEBRING - Swine Flu, or H1NI
SSwine flu as officials at the Health
Department are saying is now its offi-
cial name, isn't gone.
"It's here, it never left," said Robert

"Deaths are a good reminder that it

Members of the Highlands County

Maxwell: 'God has


been good to me'


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - Sitting at
a desk in a room inside the
Maxwell Groves gift shop,
Steve Maxwell, wearing his
ever-present blue jeans, a,
matching short-sleeved
work shirt and a broad
smile, says, "I don't feel
like a pioneer. Pioneers are
old. I feel like I'm 30 years
old."

He was born here STE
in 1944, 'next door MAXV
to the packing AP Piol
house in the old the
family home. He
was the baby of the family
that included two boys and
two girls. "Dr. Coleman
was our family doctor," he
said.
His Avon Park roots go
back to the early mid-
1920s. That's when his
grandfather, Charlie
Maxwell, came to Avon
Park from Georgia during
the Florida boom to buy
land. But in 1928 came the
crash - and "everybody lost
;everything."
T. Hayes Maxwell,
Steve's father, had been
studying electrical engi-
neering at Georgia Tech,
but dropped out to move to
Avon Park to help his father
salvage what little he could.
Hayes was able to buy a


house and 10 acres, paying
$600 for both, with the
house the same one Steve
was born in. It had been
built in 1926 from logs
from one of the Avon Park
crate mills.
Steve's father went to

and field man. His job was

Steve recalls his
father building
labor camps for the
Jamaican and
Haitian fruit har-
vesters he hired.
These camps were a
"tent cify," with
canvas sides and
wood floors. The
family also brought
in cattle to feed the
workers. His father


butchered the cattle while
his mother cut them up.
Steve describes his moth-

as an Avon Park historian,
as a most industrious
woman. She took in sewing
- Steve says he still has
"the last shirt she ever
made me." She also did
upholstery work and was
able "to repair anything."
Along with that, she had'a
cow and raised chickens,
with the milk, butter and

income.

Sebring.

A mouth-watering fundraiser


By CHRISTOPHER

christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - The First
Barbecue Competition, held
to raise money for the Mt.
Zion AME Church at 870
Martin Luther King Jr.
Boulevard, was a delicious
success.
"It would have been suc-
cessful if only two people
showed up," said organizer
Decaris Jones., "I wanted
more participants., but lots
more people stopped by and
bought plates of food than I
expected. It turned out real
good."
In fact there was such a
rush of people eager to eat,
the judging had to start early
because the cooks were run-
ning out of food.
Three barbecue chefs
entered the competition -
masters of meat and the grill.
Luke Ancrum was award-
ed first place. It was his
sauce he said, without giving
away any secrets, and the
fact that he cooked his meat
for five hours that put him
over the top., '
He was the first to run out
of food, having served up
pulled pork, chicken, and
pork loin stuffed with wild
rice.
Luke Ancrum's father is
Rubin Ancium, the church's
pastor. "I had.nothing to do
with the judgiqg'." the pastor
said laughing.
."It was my special sauce,"
said Luke, "but it was a
close race, my hat's off to
the competition."

second, Willie Riley at the

Local

welfare

. claims

jump 43

percent

By ED BALDRIDGE
ed baldridge @ newssun.com
SEBRING - Welfare rates
have climbed to match unem-
ployment jumps as the reces-
sion continues throughout the
state.
Unemployment topped 10
percent in July, but recent
state data shows that
Florida's welfare rolls grew
1.5.2 percent over. the past
year.
Highlands County welfare
claims for July jumped 43
percent compared to last
year, according to Elizabeth
Arenas, the Florida's
Departments of Child and
Families Central Region pub-
lic information officer. In
2008, food stamp clients in
Highlands numbered 8,744
compared to the 12,534
clients this year.
The claims have been
steadily increasing from July
of last year, growing between
200 and 300 extra claims
each month locally.
State officials expect that
trend to continue even after
the recession ebbs.,
More than 56,700 families
received state welfare aid in
July. That's up from 49,257
families during the same
month last year, according to
DCF.
The Temporary Assistance
for Needy Families program,
colloquially called welfare,
provides monthly payments
to two types of families.
The first group receives
the money on behalf of a
child, often a relative in the
family's care. The second
group includes families with
an adult Whose income falls
below the federal poverty
level.
Though the second group
of recipients is smaller, data
shows its recent growth has
been much more rapid.
In the past year, the num-
ber of Florida families with
welfare-eligible adults soared
almost 56 percent.
That means at the start of
July there were 18,573 fami-
lies across the state with an
out-of-work adult who had
no other means of support for
his or her household.
In Jdly 2008, that number
was 11,914.
Welfare trends lag behind
other statistics, economists

HURRICANE CHARLEY: FIVE YEARS LATER
Caladiums

were wiped

recovered yet," Cornell said.
"The first thing we noticed
was that there were lines
down every where. There
were lots of broken windows,
and we were without power
for three days."
Cornell-explained that
every business in Avon Park
was effected somehow, and
most of those on Main Street
eventually went away.
"Our building we were in
on Main developed a bad
leak, and we were finally
forced to move to over here
on Lake (Avenue). We lost
almost every business in the
Brickell Building soon after
that. The Broken Spoke, and
three other small businesses
went out. We lost Cheryl's
Emporium in the Touchton
Building. A lot of businesses


left," Cornell added.
According to Cornell,
Hurricane Charley not only
hurt business for the weeks
surrounding the initial recov-
ery, it left a lasting impact on
the business community.
"We had to close for at
least a week after that Friday
the 13th, business for a lot of
folks was beginning to slip
before that, but Charley made
it a lot worse.
"I keep close records, and
we are still down over 51
percent from the business
before Charley hit," Cornell
figured.
And Cornell's outlook for
the future?
"With the current econo-
my, it is tough. We still have
our regular customers, but
even they are not buying as.
much," Cornell said.


Having insurance wasn't a

"It was surprising to see
the roof come off like that,"
McGahee said. "I really was-
n't expecting it. I thought,
'My goodness, what's going
oh here?'"
He and his wife went about
moving furniture into the dry
portion of the house. The sun
room was a total loss.
McGahee praised his
neighbors and county work-
ers. Everyone pulled together
after the storm he said, help-
ing clear the streets and clean
up the mess.
They were without elec-
tritity for about a week, but
he didn't bother buying a
generator and made do
instead.
Only two large stumps at
the end of the cul-de-sac are
left as, proof a hurricane has
ever blown through.
McGahee is calm talking
about that night - Francis

and Jeanne barely bothered
them at all. But when he
begins to talk about his insur-
ance company his voice fills
with anger and he leans for-
ward in his chair.
"Nationwide," he sniffs.
"They were definitely not on
my side," making a hard
edged joke using the compa-
ny's commercial jingle.
"I had.been paying them
premiums religiously for
seven or eight years. I had a
$500 deductible, $30,000 in
damages, and all they gave
me was a check for $1,300.
"I learned a lot of lessons
that summer, but the main
one was to just put trust in
your Lord, and not in these
insurance companies.
"I don't buy insurance any
more, and to tell the truth,
since trusting in the Lord I
haven't had any more disas-
ters."

they didn't produce any
bulbs."
While the south side of CR
621 has acre after acre of the
ornamental plants, the north
side is bordered by Lake
Istokpoga, which was respon-
sible for the "waves over the
caladium fields" when it
overflowed into the surround-
ing area, destroying a good
portion of that year's crop.
"That season we lost
everything and the next year
was slow because we didn't
have a full crop of every-
thing," Phypers said.
"For several of the vari-
eties it took several years to
be able to grow enough seeds
to be available," Phypers
said. "It's been a recovery
time."
The ravages of Hurricanes
Charley, Frances and Jeanne
in 2004 affected the industry
more than just one year, with
many growers still working
hard to find space in grow-
houses up north - which has
been hard in the current eco-
nomic climate.
"All that and then the
economy hit. There's been
droughts in areas that can't
water caladiums because they
had water restrictions,"
Phypers said. "And fuel bills
up north; they couldn't keep
growhouses above 80
degrees."
A lot of their business fell
off, Phypers explained,
adding that all the caladium
growers in Lake Placid are
still working to build it back
up.
But the damage to the
crops was only part of the
effect from the storms.
Like many residents expe-
riencing the hurricanes first-
hand whose homes were
damaged, every one of the
pump houses in the fields
suffered similar damage and
had to be rebuilt, tacking on
even more cost for the own-
ers of Happiness Farms.
Now, five years later, the
crops are back growing
strong, and thanks to a faith-
ful mail order business of
consumers who have contin-
ued the demand for caladi-
ums, the industry is growing
again, Phypers said.
The fields, too, are back to
their pre-hurricane beauty,
pumping out bulb after bulb
of many varieties ready to
beautify the greenhouses and
homes across the country.
"The caladiums are beauti-
ful out there," Phypers said.
"The fields are gorgeous."

Hunter Martinez, 10, explained' why he
likes raising and showing chickens.
"They run and you have to chase them,"
he said.
The organization regularly takes trips for
education and recreation, including
overnight canoeing trips, and is divided
into roughly 10 clubs, with something for a


variety of tastes and even specific areas.
For those who don't want to focus on just
one thing, there are clubs for the Venus,
Sebring and Lake Placid area.
Butler is always looking for adult volun-
teers as well, she said, that help serve the
organization in many different ways.

Economics 101
Editor:
Let us reason together. Why is our
nation in such a mess and so people
out of work? Maybe because we
reward the ones who don't work, or
can't get jobs because of poor skills.
The housing mess started when
government decided that everyone
deserved a house of their own, even
though their credit was bad, or didn't
have the means to pay off the mort-
gage..... Some buyers took adjustable
mortgage rates that were bound to go
up. It pays to read the fine print but
maybe their reading skills weren't up
to par.
We voted for change and some
changes were necessary, but soaking
the rich isn't the answer. Wealthy
people are usually the ones who got
an education, put in long hours of
work, saved and invested. Penalizing
business with higher taxes will force
them to lower wages, or eliminate
jobs...
Senior citizens are blamed for the.
high cost of Social Security and
Medicare. For years we paid for
Social Security out of our earnings.
Instead of saving this and investing
our money, Congress spent it ...
Why is health care so expensive?
Because of free care of indigents or
illegal immigrants and high costs of
medical treatment. Yes doctors fees
are high, for good reason. Their insur-
ance premiums are outrageous
because of frivolous lawsuits ... If
doctors aren't really negligent, or
incompetent they shouldn't be penal-
ized ...
Well how about the high price of
goods and services, whose fault is
that? Fuel costs are high because
Congress wouldn't let oil companies
drill ...Unions keep wages ard prices
high and we import goods that are
made with slave labor. We used to
have tariffs to protect our workers ..
We can blame environmentalists for
many of our problems. It seems that
our lives and welfare are less impor-
tant than animals (and trees...
One of the reasons that Social
Security is going broke is that there
are fewer workers. Babies aborted
years ago would be working now and
contributing to Social Security. What
,part of "Do not.murder" don't you
understand? ...
Our country is going bankrupt
because we honor laziness, criminals
andloose morals. Free sex is not free.
Men walk away from their children
and we pick up the tab. Jails and pris-
ons don't seem to be a deterrent ...
Free health care for the undeserv-
ing will make prosperous employers
pay. That will lead to lower wages, or
letting people go. This is good for our
economy? ...
Much of the blame for our poor
economy is placed on senior citizens.
We don't work, so we may be consid-
ered expendable, not worth health
care. Do you know that much of the
volunteer work and charitable work is

time and some of us have the money
because of hard work and saving. Are
we useless? I, for one, don't think so.

Seeing clearly now
Editor:
One of the most important gifts we
are blessed with is our eyes, which
we so often take for granted. My
story is one of my tribute to Dr. T.
Hunter Newsom and the miracles he
performs.
It all started with a trip to the
Department of Motor Vehicles to
obtain a new driver's license to
replace my soon-to-expire one. When
the clerk asked me to read the third
line of the vision test and I said
"there is no third line" she said please
just read the third line, again I stated
I could not see a third line and all I
could see was a very cloudy blob. She
handed me a form and advised me to
go immediately to an eye doctor, have
an exam and have the form signed
and filled out by him before I could
obtain a license.
I made an appointment with Dr.
Newsom, who came highly recom-
mended by several people. Upon
completion of the exam I was told
that my right eye vas at 2400, not
20/40 or 20/30...but 2400...very bad
and I had a fast-growing cataract that
needed to be extracted as soon as pos-
sible. I also had a cataract in the left
eye as well.
I was totally apprehensive and
somewhat frightened to have anyone
mess with my eyes, but I did want to
see. I had cataract surgery on the
right eye July 21, one week after my
initial appointment with the doctor. I
had my left eye done one week later,
July 28, all within the past three
weeks of July. This is my first day out
of the surgery on the left eye and I
am typing this letter now, reading
without glasses and seeing colors so
clearly that words cannot explain.
I feel sure my story is not the only
one of it's kind and this letter is to

of eye exams, as well as my tribute to
Dr. T. Hunter Newsom, his fine staff,
wonderful nurses and the "painless"
procedure performed by Dr. Hunter
along with the aid of a caring anes-
thesiologist at the Surgery Center. I
must also give recognition to the
Department of Motor Vehicles for
being so thorough in their exams; for
if it wasn't for them, I would still be
looking through glasses that I thought
were defective and would not realize
that it was my eyes that were defec-
tive. I truly am so very pleased with
the lenses placed in my eyes by
Acrysof ReStor lens and the best trib-
ute of all I will give to my caring hus-
band who has so diligently been
administering all the eye drops every
few hours as required now and in the

old song that truly depicts how I feel,
the song is: "I Can See Clearly Now."
Thanks to all.

ObamaCare a Trojan Horse
- -- -


ObamaCare a Trojan Horse


The fight over ObamaCare
reminds me of the story of the
guard at a Soviet plant. Every
night one worker would leave
the plant pushing a wheel bar-
row full of dirt. The guard
meticulously searched the
dirt, but never found anything.
After the fall of the commu-
nist regime, the guard saw the
worker in coffee shop and
asked "I know you had to be
stealing something. Now we
are both retired, tell'me, what
was it?"
The worker answered,
"Wheelbarrows."
It isn't enough to shift
through the details of the
ObamaCare bill; we need to
look at the delivery model.
I have spent my weekend
reading through the massive
health care bill. I must admit I
haven't read it all but what I
have read was enough to con-
vince me that this would be a
disaster. It is not simply
because individual elements
are bad. It is bad because it
will put in place a massive
federal bureaucracy dedicated
to overseeing every aspect of
our lives. There will be gov-
ernment control everywhere.
Of course, pieces of it are
particularly troubling. For
example, on page 936 it calls
for "Identification of health
disparities in prevention and
wellness." And on page 973 it
calls for "collection of data
regarding the Nation's health
and performance of Nation's
health care," by "race, ethnic-
ity, primary language, sex,
sexual orientation, gender
identity, disability,... and any
other population or subpopu-
lation as determined appropri-
ate by the Secretary." We
know what the government
does with such data. Since it
is statistically inevitable that
they will find disparities, they
will feel empowered to push
for quotas and affirmative
action. Such data will feed
lawsuits.
The bill assures us that
experts will be gathered to
oversee and administer the
whole thing, to decide on
"best practices," to improve
prevention. The problem is
that this will create a massive
new entitlement program -
not simply an entitlement for
health care, but an entitlement
for the government bureau-
crats who run the program,
who do the studies, who col-
lect the data, who try to elimi-
nate "disparities."
We know from experience
how difficult it is to fire a
government worker or close a
government program. Once
these people get their hands


From The
Right Side
bale O'Zeqry

into the public till they are not
about to take them out. They
will organize. Their unions
will lobby for higher wages
and more benefits. As sure as
weeds grow, unions want to
increase their power base by
increasing the number of gov-
ernment employees.
All this will mean more
money from the people's
pockets, more debt for the
nation. The unions will fight
any cuts - pretending to the
public that every cut in their
budgets is a cut in services to
clients, when in fact real cuts
,would target superfluous
workers and worthless pro-
grams. Government workers'
unions have the politicians
under their thumbs ard no
cuts will be made. The pro-
grams will grow and grow.
One has only to look at
England, where the health
care bureaucracy is now the
third largest employer in the
world after the Chinese Red
Army and Indian railroad.
We who oppose this plan
cannot allow ourselves to be
fooled by small compromises
or the elimination of the most
offensive aspects of the pro-
gram. Everyone needs to
understand the way the far left
works. First, they propose leg-
islation that is a liberal wish
list, hence the 1,000-plus
pages. They throw every radi-
cal agenda item into the mix,
knowing that the most
extreme will draw fire. The
most objectionable are almost
always shot down, but in the
process the opposition
expends all its ammunition
and the bulk of the radical
agenda passes through
unscathed.
What is worse, even if
things like.abortion funding
are specifically prohibited,
what is to prevent a judge
from deciding later on that
these must be included
because once you grant a uni-
versal right to health care, you
have no defense against other
made-up rights?
ObamaCare is a Trojan
horse. It may look like a gift,
but break down the gates to
let it into our city and our
defenses will be irreparable
destroyed. It is not enough to
stop pieces of it or reform it,
the whole idea of government
health care must be rejected.
We can't afford it.

betes.
Moran said the vaccines
are scheduled to be deliv-
ered some time in mid-
October, although that date
may change.
"We are starting off with
the people that are effected
the most and it will
progress as the vaccine is
delivered' to be -open to all
'people within the county,"
he said.
Vaccinating such a large
percentage of school chil-
.dren means the vaccines
will likely be given at the
schools with the Health
Department administering
theniiwith the help of EMS


and other county employ-
ees.
Currently all flu viruses
sent for testing are the
H1N1 strand, said epidemi-
ologist Leona Braithwaite
with the Health
Department.
' That's because it isn't flu
season where the virus,
along with seasonal flu, is
likely to spread more. That
coupled with the start of
school could be trouble.
"Expect widespread
influenza activity in
school. L-when school
'starts," Braithwaite said.
Currently the Centers for
Disease Control arid
Prevention have stated that
ill children and adults
should stay home if they
have flu-like symptoms
and advise a balance
between safety and the dis-
ruption caused by school
dismissals.
Paulussek said the
Health Department is
advising that ill stUdents
who are brought to School
be sent home with their
parents or isolated if a par-
ent is unable to be contact-
ed.
"It spreads quickly,"
Moran said. "That's some-
thing to think about when
school is in session."

wanted to live in the cot-
tage in our backyard."
After high school,, he
enlisted in the Air Force for
three years 'and . then
returned to. Avon Park to
help his father in the citrus
business:
Steve started building
his packing house in 1967,
finishing up in the early
1970s. At the same time, he
was remodeling his North
Lotela home. "I'd work till
7 p.m. every night on the
packing house, come home,
eat supper and then work
on the house till 2 or 3 in
the morning," he recalls.
"And then at 6 I'd get up."
His parents had started
shipping gift boxes of fruit
in 1945 from the barn.
"They'd hand-wipe each
piece, box them, up and
take them to the railroad
station. The cost was $4.95
for a bushel of oranges,
including shipping; and $4
for a bushel ofgrapefruit."
Steve says his is the last
registered packing house in
Highlands County. "I'd sell


it if the right person came
along. But I figure I got 20
more years to work. And
work is all I know how.to
do."
Along with the packing
house and gift. shop, he
owns a pest control busi-
ness and is part-owner of a
distribution business, sell-
ing and sending merchan-
dise to other gift shops
around the state.
Steve is still active in the
Avon Park agricultural and
business communities,
although he admits he is
not "a clubby person." He
did serve as secretary of
the Highlands County Farm
Bureau in 1985 and was a
board member for 10 or 15
years. He belongs to the
Avon Park Noon Rotary
Club and was once a board
member and sergeant-at-
arms. And he's been a dea-
con at the Presbyterian
church.
"I work 24/7: that's what
I'm noted for. But if you
need anything, just call me.
God has been really good
ito me - and I try to pass it
on."

E-mail says FDEP investigation of Howerton Pit is over


Continued from page 1A
The Jan. 7 e-mail exposes
an alleged wrongdoing
involving the county which,
according to a Clerk of
Courts audit, cost taxpayers
#iore than $113,000. The
Road and Bridge Misuse/Fill
Material Report was dated
Oct. 26, 2007, and written by
Mary Wilson, then Director
of Compliance and Internal
Audit for the clerk's office.
"We feel this issue should
be presented to the county
administrator and forwarded
to the proper regulatory
agencies for their review,"
the report by Wilson stated.
The 13-page report pointed
to six county trucks hauling
fill material in a rapid proces-
sion from Road and Bridge
storage to the private proper-
ty owned by Charles
Howerton.
Auditors, including
Wilson, at the time men-
tioned a conflict of interest in
the report.
From April 2000 through
September 2007 the county
purchased more than $1.5
million in materials and serv-
ices from the Howerton Sod
Farm, the property owners.
The bulk of the county's
conflict, according to the
report by Wilson, was the
expense of 977 loads of fill
material, consisting,,of a
sand/shell mixtuiie and a
sand, concrete and asphalt
mixture, allegedly used to fill
in large craters in the proper-:
ty.
Aerial photographs of the
property confirm that at least
two large holes that resemble
ponds were filled and lev-
eled.
SUsing figures from the pri-
vate sector, the cost to the
taxpayers for the free work
was estimated at $102,585,
the report noted.
The fill was not considered
surplus material, according to
County Purchaising Director
Gerald Secory in a Nov. 2008
News-Sun story.
Normally, excess fill dirt is
sold through Internet .auc-
tjls.. ;The .county does .not
dispose of ilVf
"If we \qould have been
advised we had 'x' number of
cubic yards we could have
put it out for.,people to at
least haul it away," he said.
"There is a cost (to the coun-
ty) to haul it away."
The estimated cost for
transporting the 977 loads
was in the $10,000 range, the
report said, when calculating
80 hours worked for the six
county employees and the
gas consumed by the six
Road and Bridge dump
trucks.
Adding the cost associated
with employee benefits and
usage costs for the equip-
ment, as well as the use of a
backhoe And large front-end
loader, the cost jumps to an
estimated $21,433, according
to Wilson's original report.
The dirt in question could
have also gone to the landfill
for its use, keeping the coun-
ty from having to purchase
additional fill dirt.
The materials in question,

say, so the data did not imme-
diately reflect the recession.
Even as the economy spi-
raled downward, welfare
rates continued to drop well
into 2007 locally, but then
trend changed course as the
recession got into full gear.
A rising number of out-of-
work Highlands County resi-
dents have come to rely on
the program as the period of
joblessness outlasts unem-


ployment benefits.

because some were mixed
with asphalt and concrete, are
not legally allowed to be
used as fill.
"The disposal of this (con-
struction and demolition)
material, in a place other than
a permitted,solid waste man-
agement facility, is a viola-
tion of the Florida Statutes,
the Florida Administrative
Code and the Highlands
County Municipal Code," the
original report said.


According to the Jan. 7 e-
mail, Kyle Green, director of
the Road and Bridge
Department, described the
material as several years of
accumulated spoil material
from ditch cleaning (includ-
ing vegetative material), road
construction projects, old
concrete pipes and driveways
and some incidental asphalt.
Green was quoted as say-
ing that "it was not what he
would describe as clean fill


dirt."
The statements by Wilson
and Green prompted the
investigation by the FDEP.
Although Randall Landers,
Program Administrator for
FDEP, confirmed earlier in
the month that the investiga-
tion was under way, he did
not indicate the any actual
fines or charges would be
levied.
"Our agents drove by the
property and did not see any


wrongdoing," Landers said in
a phone interview.
Landers did confirm that
asphalt was present and
observed at the Howerton
property, but stated that he
did not consider asphalt a
leeching hazard even though
FDEP regulations prohibit it
from being disposed in a such
a manner.
"We have a report from a
professor in Michigan that
states the asphalt leeching is


not a concern for ground
water," Landers said.
Landers forwarded a copy
of the Michigan report to the
News-Sun.
Landers also indicated that
no phase of any environmen-
tal study or actual groundwa-
ter testing was conducted
other than the observations.
A follow-up phone call to
Landers to confirm that the
investigation was closed was
not returned at press time.

AAAs on their A game

Three routs to open up Dixie World Series


Courtesy photo
Above: Team Florida, also
known as the Sebring All-
Stars, gather for a few words
before taking the field
Saturday at the Dixie AAA
World Series in Laurel, MS.
With a 16-6 win over
Louisiana Saturday and a
10-0 victory over South
Carolina Sunday, Sebring is
cruising through the winner's
bracket so far. Left: Kyle
"Snack Pack" Helhns takes
it easy during pre-game, but
he was on his game
Monday, pitching two
innings of one-run ball and-
driving in four at the plate
in Sebring's 13-2 win over
Alabama.


LAUREL, MS - The routs
continued Monday, as Team
Florida took a 13-2 win over
Alabama at the Dixie AAA
World Series, making it three
in a row for the Sebring All-
Stars on their trip to
Mississippi.
"It's just unbelievablee"
head coach 'Dean Frazier
said. "To be winning these
games like this, hitting like
we're hitting - and these are
the best teams in their states.
It's jtst mind boggling."
Again it was a team effort,
with 13 hits being spread
throughout the line-
up, and another two Seb
players coming up ,
with the big hits.
"They all hit the A
ball well, and Kyle
(Helms) had a couple
big hits, one that
cleared the bases at
one point," Frazier said. "It
just seems like if one kid
doesn't get the job done, the
next kid steps up."
Helms, also known as
"Snack Pack" did the job on
the mound as well, going the
first two innings and giving
up one run, two hits, two
walks and two strike-outs,
before Crystal Grimaldo
went the final two innings
and giving up the one other
run for Alabama - both being
unearned.
"Kyle did what we asked,"
Frazier said. "He came in and
threw strikes. We scored four
in the first and that kind of
took the pressure off and


from there, it was pretty
much the same story."
Meaning few runs given up
and plenty scored.
After the four-run first,
another four came in during
the third and five more came
in the fourth, while 'Bama
scratched for their lone runs
in thefirst and third.
"We've got Hattiesberg,
MS tonight," Frazier said.
"They're pot the host team,
but they're not too far from
here, so they'll have a big
crowd. We've faced some big
crowds and it can get a little


ring

intimidation g,
but .hopefully
we can score
some runs early
and quiet them
down pretty
quick."
Now 3-0 in
the tournament,


Sebi




(1


Sebring has three wins left to
get for 'the World Series
championship, and this being
double elimination, the team
has two losses yet to work
with.
But having outscored their
opponents by a combined 39-
8 in the three games thus far,
they might not need to worry
about any losses.
Smashing Sunday
Another day, another
mercy-rule win for Team
Florida at the Dixie AAA
World Series in Laurel, MS
as the Sebring All-Stars
demolished South Carolina
10-0 Sunday night.


"It's hard to imagine that
just a month or so ago I had
this scrappy little group of
kids," head coach Dean
Frazier said. "And now we're
one of the favorites in the
World Series."
A heavy dose of the heavy
hitting that Sebring has put
on has a way of doing that.
The latest win, after
Saturday's 16-6 route of
Louisiana, had the perfect
bookends as Jimmy Peck got
things started with a two-run
home run in the first inning
and Trey Frazier ended it
with a two-run blast in
ing the bottom of the
O fourth to seal the ten-
run win.
oina "The kids are just
playing good baseball
S right now," the elder
Frazier said. "The hit-
ting is coming
through and we've really had
some great pitching.
"Crystal (Grimaldo) came
in to a tie game the first day,
threw strikes and kept us in
the game until the bats turned
it around," he, continued.
"And Josh (Crouch) was phe-
nomenal last night. He actu-
ally should have had a no-hit-
ter."
The only blemishes on the
night for Crouch came with
one out in the fourth with a
questionable single and his
lone walk of the game.
"There was a little dribbler
back toward the mound,"

Run for the Fallen

SEBRING - Run for the Fallen is a
national event that first took place last
year as a group of friends of a fallen sol-
dier organized a run across the United
States, running from California to
Arlington Cemetery.
They asked for pledges of miles to
honor the masses of our fallen military.
They ran one mile for every fallen
military 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.
Our local walk/run had almost 60 par-
ticipants last year, walking more than
200 miles.
Due to the positive response there will
be another walk/run this year.
Plans for Run for the Fallen -
Highlands are being finalized and is
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.
A day we can show our support for our
military and their families.
If you are interested in participating
by walking or running, volunteering, or
donating to the cause, email: runforthe-
fallenfl@yahoo.com or

Team Florida running roughshod through World Series


Continued from 1B
Frazier said of Davis Gilroy's
cue-shot. "Josh came off 'the
mound and went to the
ground to get it, threw from
his knees and overthrew the
first baseman. The official
scorer ruled it was a hit, but
if the throw is there, we had
him."
The base on balls came to
the next batter, Will Lorick,
but Crouch induced consecu-
tive fielder's choices to end
the inning.
On the night, Crouch threw
just 47 pitches
Sebring in his four
innings of
work, faced
Just two over
Louisiana the minimum
amount of
Batters and
struck out
five.
Offensively, Frazier and
Peck lead the charge with a
double and home run apiece,
driving in four and three
runs, respectively.
Next up along the winner's
bracket, is a match-tip with
Team Alabama, scheduled for
7:30 p.m. tonight, Central
Standard Time, having
topped Virginia and
Tennessee in its' first two
contests.
"They're a good, scrappy
team," Frazier said. "They
don't have the power hitting
we have, but they're a team
that's not going to beat them-
selves. So we have to come
ready. With ten-year olds,
you never know, they could
show up without their A
game and get a loss hung on
them."
Though, so far, Sebring
has earned As for its' effort.

,Overpowering opener
It was a back-and-forth

Trey Frazier came up with a big hit Sunday, clinching the
10-0, mercy-rule win over South Carolina with a two-run
homer in the fourth, and final, inning.


affair early on, but two big
innings created the separa-
tion needed as Sebring took
its' Dixie AAA World Series
opener with a 16;6 win over
Team Louisiana.
Sebring jumped out with
two in the top of the first, but
Louisiana evened things up
with two runs of its' own.
The teams exchanged one-
run second innings, but then
Team Florida made like a
Cape Canaveral launch' and
took off.
'Six runs in the third, four
more in the fourth and three
in the fifth just overwhelmed
the kids from the Pelican
state.
Josh Crouch got the start
on the mound and went just
over one inning, but control
problems hampered his cause
with four walls in the early
going.


Crystal Grimaldo then took
over and went four innings,
scattering four hits, walking
one and striking out three.
SAll three runs that came in
on her watch were unearned.
But it didn't matter much
as the Sebring offense is what
took the game over.
Crouch had three hits and
four RBI, Jay Bible a single,
double and three RBI while
Trey Frazier, Seth Cannady,
Jimmy Peck, Kyle "Snack
Pack" Helms and Gabe
Gomez each knocked in a
run.
All but one Sebring player
scored a run and all but two
had at least one base hit.

for updates and see Friday's
News-Sun for recap of
Sebring's Series run.

hitters in Sebring's World Series wins.

NegMin A %i rluvr


Sebring
Hills
By GHilBennett
SEBRING - A stone is
heavy, and the sand weighty;
but a fool's wrath is heavier
than them both. Wrath is not
seen at the club and we have
no room for it. A good time,
Zumba, line dancing, bridge,
pirig-pong' and shuffleboard
just for you.
More things to remember:
Shots that appear easy are
often missed. Concentrate on
the shot. Careless playing
will get you in trouble. One
careless shot may cost you
the game. Pay attention and
think before you shoot. Be
seated and remain seated
when the opposite end is
shooting. Get up only after
they have finished or a disc
needs to be checked. Be sure
and get up to check disc for
your partner if there is a
question, about it being good.
When your opponent is
shooting, make sure your cue
is held up. Give them plenty
of room for the shot. Watch
the scoreboard and know the
score at all times. This is also
your partner and friend, so
treat it that way. Remember,
"When in doubt, take it out."
Take your easiest shot when
you have a choice in' shoot-
ing. "Keep It Simple Stupid"
is always good to keep in
mind when playing shuffle-
board. Make your banner and
do not chase.
Aug. 22 is the 50th wed-
ding anniversary for Jim and
Joan Mundry, so with them
being in Wisconsin, we must
keep this a secret and not talk
behind their back. They were
married in 1959, but they do
. not seem old enough for this.
They see what we print each
week so they are aware of
what we do and say.
Just looking at our directo-
ry and I am amazed at.the dif-
ferent locations for members.
Monica Behum, Wauchula;
Nancy M. Harlen,
Frostproof; Barbara Parker,
Frostproof; Hazel Sewell,
Lorida; Max and Ruth Tate,
Bowling Green; Katsue Von
Ploennier, Zolfo Springs. The
rest of us are Avon Park,
Lake Placid or Sebring resi-
dents. We need, more mem-
bers fr6m the surrounding
area such as the few wehave
listed. Just because you .live
in one of the major areas you,
are still welcome to check us
out. We are a growing club
and we hope older is not the
only way we grow. .
Monday evening, a good
time had by Winnie Wells,
Shirley Wright, Edna Myatt,
Doris Harvey, Essie Gouveia
aid Sue Kelly for the ladies,
John Bushee, Ed Straub,
Clarence Wright, Richard
Elleson, Tom Bruha, Ernie
Kelly, Roscoe Burdette -
this made three courts and a
walker.
Wednesday evening at ice
cream shuffle, Dorothy
Breedlove came from bridge
to try her hand at shuffle-
board. Her start was very
fast, as Winnie Wells had
.shown her a couple of things
that will help her with the
ganie. Shirley Wright, Essie
Gouveia and Doris Harvey.
joined these two to make five
women. John Bushee,
Clarence Wright, Ernie Kelly,
Rich Elleson, Tom Bruha


also played. Three courts
tonight, with one of them
being a round robin.
Ruth Parker will be in San
Francisco shuffling Aug. 6-
15. We have rented a house in
Pacific, Calif. I will be play-
ing at Stanford University.
Looking forward to meeting
all those shufflers from all
over the United States.
Thursday, Aug. 6, walc not
a good day for shuffleboard.
John Bushee started around 6
a.m. setting up the tables also
getting the chairs set all by
himself. Coffee made, tables
set for doughnuts, sound sys-
tem hitched up, sign up
sheets numbered and set for
both amateurs and pros.
Setting up the tables for the
50/50 and one for registra-
tion. He prepared the chips
for the drawing of courts.
Swept the courts and beaded
them. He did get a little help
on the registration table and
he sold 50/50 tickets all
about 20 minutes when he
did get help. This time he set
the computer to help him
with the tournament.
End of day and everyone
leaves but Wally Davis who
did the disc and of course
John Bushee, who had the
tables to take down, chairs to
put back. Coffee and dough-
nuts to take care of. Empty
the trash, lock the doors and
he still had work -to do when
the ping-pong players started
arriving. Twenty players
showed up for this tourna-
ment, six amateurs and 14
pros. Shuffleboard is in as
much trouble in Sebring as
the rest of the country is in.
Players let- anything come
before this game today,
unlike the past when you.had
to wait to play on 36 courts.

Tropical.
Harbor
By Barbara Kelleher
LAKE PLACID - The
pancake team of men were up
bright and early Aug. 1 in
order to serve the delicious
breakfast of pancakes,
sausage, orange juice and
coffee. We had 66 residents
attend. The year round resi-
dents enjoy finding a table
and parking space to attend.
On Monday, Aug. 3, we
had our coed coffee and
Doris Bierstine, who is our
new emcee for August and
also a retired school teacher
said she likes to begin gather-
ings with a pledge of alle-
giance to our flag and sing
"God' Bless America" and
Donna Frye accompanied us
on the piano. Doris 'intro-
duced George Susco right
away. He told the residents
that they will be working on
the .sea wall and once again
they are attempting to fix the
irrigation system, however
with all this rain we have had
the lawns are getting plenty
of water.
He also wanted all to rec-
ognize Bill and Jan Butts and
wish them well as they return
to Illinois for further medical
care. He turned the program
back .over to Doris, who
thanked Betty and Jack Post
for making the coffee and
providing everyone dough-
nuts to help celebrate their
63rd wedding anniversary.
Doris then asked Carol Noel
for a SUnshine report. One of
our former residents Barbara
Navarro'passed away in New


Jersey. Other residents need-
ing our prayers and thoughts
are Clare Bloch's sister Jan
Weiss, who is having heart
surgery, Nancy Cox, Harry
Krebs, Melvin and Jean
Potson, Toni Price and Bert
Wahl. She has sign up sheets
for all to sign to let them
know we are thinking about
them.
We had three little girls
visiting their grandmother
Stephanie Schechter, they are
Gabi, Sara and Tori, and they
were dressed and ready for a
dip in the pool with grandma.
We also had new residents
John and Carolyn Reese from
Gainesville. We welcomed
back Audrey Egner from her
trip to upper state New York;
also Sylvia and John Fitch
are back from their family
get together with their sons in
Michigan where they cele-
brated John's birthday and
their 58th wedding anniver-
sary.
Next Doris asked Donna to
play the piano so all of us
could sing "Happy Birthday"
to Wendy Henry and Maria
Hagg, then we sang "Happy
Anniversary" to Jack and
Betty Post, who are married
63 years and Alice and Bob
Herold, who have been mar-
ried 68 years. Doris thanked
Donna for the music.
Next we had the activities.
Tony Barriga announced that.
the Mustangs will be eating
at Blue Lagoon in Sebring on
Tuesday, Aug. 18 at 11:30
a.m. Louann Steffen
.announced' that Ladies Day
Out will be at the Pepper
Corn Restaurant in Lake
Placid on Aug. 18 at 11:30
a.m., she and Lena Chapman
will be our hostesses. There
are sign up sheets for the men
and the women on the bul-
letin board. We are not sure
about the Salad Bar Lunch or
the Carry-in Dinner since we
do not have a committee for
the month of August yet.
For the Tuesday, Aug. 4,
Ladies Coffee, Marilyn
Cromer made the coffee and
presided over the meeting.
She gave a financial report
for the activities that were
provided for the Fourth of
July. We had no committee
for the other functions that
usually take place such as the
Salad Bar Luncheon or the
Carry-In Dinner. As of.to
date, we do not have a com-
mittee for the month of
August either for the above
scheduled dates. We will be
having the Military Soup and
Sandwich and Men's Day our
Ladies Day Out both on
Tuesday, Aug. 18.
Carol Noel told the group
that she has sign up sheets on
the table for all to sign to let
the residents and friends
know we are thinking about
them. The names are listed
along with the'Monday news.
Resident news:
Congratulations go out to

tle boys. Their granddaughter

'daughter Stacy Redmond,

love every one of them.

Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - The
Ladies' from Avon Park
American Legion Unit 69
never miss a chance to have
fun and entertain the mem-
bers apd guests.
Recently, they all got
together to put on a skit for
the men wrapped around the
idea of how valuable they
are to them all 12 months of
the year.
Each lady represented a


month of the year with a lit-
tle verse to delight the audi-
ence and ended it all with a
song entitled " Your Got a
Friend In Me." The ladies
take great care t6 help the
Legionnaires in any way
they can so they put on a "
free" dinner and show for
them that turned out to be a
fun day for all.
This year the Auxiliary is
hoping to put a theme to a
lot of their functions, such


as the 50's, a luau, hillbilly,
western, etc. to add flavor
and frolic to their Saturday
night dinner dances that the
Post is starting up again this
year. They will also be
heading up a "Pumpkins for
Patriots" program all this
fall to raise money for
phone cards to the troops for
the Holidays.
If you wish to participate
call 453-4553.

other to exercise even more
this coming week.

flyer that listed 50 different
foods that people can say
yes to. Some of the foods are
acorn squash, almonds,
apples, apricots, asparagus,
bananas and blueberries.
The program for the day
was based on the fact that
dieters should focus on the
positive things that they are
doing instead of focusing on
the bad things. Instead of ,
always saying, "I didn't" or I
should have," dieters should
think about the good things
they do. Each member got a
list of positive things to do
during the coming week to
help them lose weight.
TOPS 806 meets at 8 a.m.
each Thursday morning at
Emmanuel United Church of
Christ on Hammock Road.
