Schools not

likely to

close due to

swine flu

CDC has changed
guidelines for this year
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
SEBRING - Last year's school clo-
sures in larger districts in Florida due
to H1N1 swine flu, were unnecessary
and guidelines have been changed for
the,upcoming school year.
The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention have changed their policy
suggestions for the 2009-10 school
year, stating that instead of closing
schools, which is now a last resort, sick
children will be sent home or,quaran-
tined if their parents are not available
toipick them up.:
"They are not recommending
schools be closed in the event it occurs
like it did last year," said Rodney
Hollinger, Highlands County School
Board deputy,superintendent.
The CDC suggests other precautions,
mostly taking basic steps to help pre-
vent it from spreading by having stu-
dents and staff washing their hands
thoroughly, covering coughs, and cus-
todial staff being sure to clean surfaces
and items that come in contact with
many-different people, like keyboards
and doorknobs.
Hollinger said the district will defi-
nitely follow the CDC guidelines and
work with the Highlands County
Health Department staff to prevent any
potential flu events.
"You'd be imprudent not to follow
CDC guidelines," Hollinger said.
Part of the preventive steps the dis-
trict has already taken include having a
health department official talk to prin-
cipals at their recent meeting, and
Hollinger attended last weeks health
department talk on vaccinations for
swine flu, which included discussing
the possibility of vaccinating children
during the school day.
"Our discussion with the health
department was what's the best way to
get this out, and of course we have the

LAKE PLACID - What
did the grape do when it got
stepped on?
It let out a little wine!
Usually, squishing some-
thing between your toes is a
bad thing, unless there is
wine involved, and hundreds
got their chance to stomp to
their heart's content Saturday
morning during the ninth
annual Grape. Stomp at
Henscratch Farms.
Stompers got a chance to
order their own "private
label" bottle of foot-stomped
wine made from the pressed
grapes, complete with their
own picture on the front.
During the stomping, those
worn out from squishing
could listen to Harry Havery,
T.J. Kinyon, Rodney Havery,
and Rodney Hollinger, better
known as the California Toe-


Jam Band.
Organizers planned on
more than two tons of grapes
going under foot this year.
That's more than 4,000
pounds, and the wine would
be ready for pick up some-
time in No\ ember..
Located in the Heart of
Florida, Henscratch Farms
Vineyard & Winery is a
unique farming and guest
experience most of the year
round. A certified "Florida
Farm Winery" by the state,
the property boasts 10 acres
of native southern muscadine
and scuppernong grape vari-
eties.
A scuppernong (also called
a "scuppernine" or "susca-

Residents protest proposed training facility in Venus

o 9099 0100 911


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - A couple of dozen citizens showed
up to let their concerns be made know about the
proposed Eagle National Security Training Center
during the Highlands County Planning and Zoning
meeting on Tuesday.
The neighbors to the planned 7,700-acre training
facility in Venus voiced concern about lack of noti-
fication concerning the proposed land regulations
and permitting needed at a county commission
meeting on July 7.


Environmental impact,
safety are top concerns
Although county commissioners decided to
move forward with the center, resident Daniel
Preston has property within 300 feet of the new
development area and informed the commission
that he was never notified of the rezoning.
"I never received any notice concerning this
issue," Preston said. "This is the first that, I have
heard about the rezoning. I was not notified about


this before hand."
The state's Department of Community Affairs
(DCA) also raised several issues about the pro-
posed training facility in August of 2008, and
County Project Manager Mark Hill was in the
process of explaining the Stipulated Settlement
Agreement that county staff had reached with DCA
when adjacent property owners complained that
they had not been properly notified concerning the
rezoning of the area.

you see them all of the time
with them hanging down in
their car and they're driving
down the road or on the

three suspects in

AP home invasion


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
AVON PARK - A trio of
men are in custody after
being implicated in a home
invasion that occurred in
the 300 block of East
Washington Street on Aug.
1.
That evening, Davorris
Timau, 18, Onterial Clark,
16, and Nicholas
Fort, 20, all of Avon
Park, allegedly
entered the 74-year-
old victim's home,
struck him in the
head, and fled the
scene with his wal-
let, cell phone and
car.
After midnight on
Wednesday, Aug. 5,
the vehicle was
recovered by Avon
Park Police
Department officers
in the 400 block of Tii
Nprth Lake Avenue
after they responded to a
complaint about a black
male knocking on some-
one's home and asking for
gas money.
Timau was .allegedly
located at the intersection
of Kathleen Street and
North Lake Avenue and had
the keys to the stolen vehi-
cle.
He was arrested and
charged with grand theft of
the automobile
The next day APPD


investigators questioned
Timau, who allegedly told
them he was one of three
men who were involved in
the home invasion.
He identified Clark and
Fort by nickname only,
according to arrest reports.
Clark, who was identi-
fied by his nickname and
whose mother was contact-
ed and told to bring
him to the APPD for
questioning, report-
edly admitted to
being present for the
robbery and said he
was at the Ridgedale
,rt Apartments with the
two other men when
they started talking
about the victim,
saying he buys

"Clark stated they
planned to go to the
(victim's) house and
nau steal his money,"..
- the report . by
Christy Harbaugh said.
He went on to say that
Fort, who he also identified
by nickname only, removed
the battery from the vic-
tim's home phone during
the robbery so he couldn't
call 911.
Clark was charged with
home invasion robbery and
trespassing. He was trans-
ferred . to the Juvenile
Detention Center in Bartow

kids every day," Hollinger
said.
The vaccine is currently
scheduled to be release some
time in October. Once it is
available, the district could
partner with the health
department and give the vac-
cinations at school to take the
burden off families that
would have to do it on their
own time and potentially wait
in long lines.
"It's just factual that a lot
of kids would be able to get
access to the vaccine with us
that would not otherwise if
their parents had taken them
somewhere to get it,"
Hollinger said. "We would
partner with (the Health
Department) and get parent's
permission and get as many
kids as we can and that
involves doing it at school."
The groups recommended
by the CDC to be the first to
receive the swine flu vacci-
nation when available are
pregnant women, caregivers
for children younger than 6
months of age, health care
and emergency medical serv-
ices personnel, all people
from 6 months old to 24
years of age, and persons
aged 25 to 64 who have
health conditions associated
with higher risk of medical
complications from influen-
za.
While there is not expected
to be a shortage of the vac-
cine, the CDC has said that
there is the possibility that.
initially it will only be avail-
able in limited quantities,
prompting the Advisory
Committee on Immunization
Practices to recommend
those groups be the first to
receive the vaccine.
Vaccinations will be vol-
untary, not mandatory.
,Signs that someone may
have the flu include fast
breathing or trouble breath-
ing, bluish or gray skin oolor,
not drinking enough fluids,
not urinating or no tears
when crying, severe or per-
sistent vomiting, not waking


Continued from page 1A
Property owners within
500 feet of are required to be
notified.
Leslie Landers, another
adjacent property owner,
echoed that concern.
"We did not get proper
notification either," Landers
said.
"There are going to be a
helicopter pad, a runway, live
ammunition, and we were not
informed," Preston said.
Hill assured the commis-
sion that everything was done
properly at first, but after a
break in the meeting, Hill
stated that the certified noti-
fications were not found.
-"It appears that the 2008
rezoning may not have been
done properly," Hill said.
But Hill recommended that
the county continue with the
agreement with DCA, and
that the rezoning process
could be redone at a later
date.
"If the zoning was not
done properly. we have 60
days to atter we sign the
agreement to get it done
properly," Hill said.
Other residents of
Highlands Ciunty showed up
at the recent zoning hearing
to voice similar concerns, but
the vote was still 5-1 in Ijr.tjr
of continuing with the prij-
ect.

Health Dept. oMcial
to speak to Voters
League about flu
SEBRING - Tom Moran,
planning consultant for the
Highlands , County Health
Department, will speak to the
Voters League at 6 p.m.
Thursday about the prepara-
tions made to handle any out-
breaks of H1N1, better
known as the swine flu, in
Highlands County.
Some of the many ques-
tions from members include:
Will antivirals work and is
there enough to vaccinate
everyone? Will the injections
be voluntary or by demand?
Will schools be closed and if
so, for how long?
Precaution is always the
rule with any type of virus,
but what are the limits of
health officials authority dur-
ing an epidemic?
Moran said symptoms
vary, but the most common
are fatigue, fever, lack of
appetite and coughing. Other
symptoms include runny
nose, sore throat, vomiting or
diarrhea.
If you have any symptoms,
Moran said to notify your
doctor - do not just show up
at a doctor's office or emer-
gency room without telling
them before hand that you
suspect you have the swine
flu. He also recommends
staying at home, do not go to
work or school and absolute-
ly stay away from crowded or
highly populated places.
The Voters League is a
nonpartisan group that meets

Some of the concerns
raised by the residents
included the fear of live
ammunition used in training
at the facility, and the fact
that such a large facility will
damage the rural aspects of
the, area and harm the
wildlife.
According tq Fields, the
training center could be a
threat to the 55-mile long
Fisheating Creek, which
drains water from Highlands
County into Lake
Okeechobee.,
Fields is also the president
of Save Our Creeks, which,
was established in 1989 to
move control -of Fisheating
Creek from Lykes Brothers,
which owned the land around
it, into public hands.
- After a decade of civil
demonstrations, the state
bought 18,000 acres around
the creek.
"The paramilitary com-
plex's footprint is large and
will impact the Middle
Creek, which is one of the
few pristine Wilderness areas
Florida has left," Fields
wrote to the News-Sun after
the July 7 meeting.
The group plans on raising
I lnds- to bring in an environ-
mental lawyer if needed.
If the facility is built by

Muscadines are large purple grapes,
for the most part. It belongs to the
species Vitis rotundifolia, as opposed
to European grapes which are Vitis
vinifera, and Concord grapes, which
are Vitis lambrusca.
The name comes from the

word ascopo meaning "sweet bay

muscadines as dried fruit.

Health reform bill needs to
be put on back burner
Editor:
Quite honestly, I am getting, a little
tired of reading about all the confronta-
tions across the country by the propo-
nents and opponents of this pending
legislation. Obviously, our so-called
"representatives" do not have a clue
about what has been proposed. After
all. it is 1,041 pages long and some
Congressmen have admitted that they
haven't read it. M) bet is that most
have not done so.
Wouldn't it be nice if Congress put
this bill on the back burner for 60 to 90
days in order to give all the members
of this august body time to read it?
Then, they could hold town hall meet-
ings and intelligently discuss the vari-
ous components of the bill with we the
people.
In the meantime, they could study
why our present medical system is so
costly. Has anyone addressed the issue
of malpractice insurance premiums?
Are people so naive as to believe that
doctors do not pass the cost of insur-
ance on to their clients/patients? I
remember back in the early 1970s that
a neurosurgeon took out a commercial
loan in the amountof $250,000 to
cover his malpractice premium. that's
over $20.000 per month. And that's just
one case. I
Isn't there some way to bring these
costs down? After all, we are dealing
with people. People make mistakes.
Remember. "To err is human." I find it
difficult to believe that a surgeon would
deliberately harm someone he or she is
operating on.
There are rumors that this bill was
patterned after the health care that is in
effect in Great Brittain and in Canada.
If that's the case, why are so many,
Canadians coming across the border to
get health care in the USofA? Anyone
who reads the Canadian Broadcast
Corp (CBC) news with regularity
knows that their program is terrible.
However, is this new bill patterned
after that? I haven't seen the bill but I
read arguments on both sides of that
issue. In England, waiting times of 6 to
'9 months to get an MRI, for example,
are common place according to the
BBC. Is this the kind of change we
want? Why won't our representatives
address this?
Another issue is euthanasia for sen-
iors or anyone with a terminal illness.
Does the bill actually provide for that?
Again, arguments on both sides.
What about long term health care for
seniors?
Another issue which is sure to cause
a lot of debate is abortion. Some news
sources are claiming that the bill will
allow it. I personally am against abor-
tion and I do not want my tax dollars
spent on something I find morally and
ethically repulsive. I realize I do not
speak for all but that is how I feel.
Would there really be a panel of
bureaucrats deciding an individual's
right to a particular procedure?
These are just a few of the many
questions people have which are not

mob?

The Internet is a wonderful
tool. I just used it to download
a copy of the health care bill
that's still being debated around
the country.
I'd tell you where to find it,
but the name of the website is
apparently written in Martian.
So instead I will encourage you
to do a search for "Health Care
Bill" and look for House
Committee on Energy and
Commerce Web site. It's there
along with a number of other
documents you might find
interesting. You need Adobe
Reader to actually read the
stuff, but that's free.
Another tool I recently used
on the Internet was the website
www.dictionary.com. I went
there to look up a word that has
been tossed around.during what
we're calling the health care
debate: mob.
According to the site, defini-
tions of the word "mob"
include: "a disorderly or riotous
crowd of people," or "any
group or collection of persons
or things."
Somehow I think those using
the phrase "well-dressed mob"
to describe opponents of the
Obama administration's health
care plan are thinking of the
first definition, and not the sec-
ond.
It is true,that there is a lot of
shouting going on at town hall
meetings across the nation as
our elected representatives face
the voters and discuss this bill.
People are upset, and some-
times when people get upset
they forget their manners. I'm
not saying that they -should, but
I have, and if you're honest .
you have too.
Some of those who want to
see the bill passed are quite
miffed at those who've been
making noise. "Well-dressed
mobs" is only one.phrase that's
been tossed about. There have
been accusations that the
protest is manufactured,.and
how dare these people act this
way? Who do they think they
are?
Well, I'll take a stab at the
last one. They think they're
Americans. And you know
,what? They're doing what peo-
ple on both sides of the politi-
cal spectrum have done to get
their voices heard.
Anyone remember the Iraq
war protests? People were
upset at those as well, and
don't tell me there wasn't a lit-
tle temper shown now and
again. In 2003 we were told by
no less than Hillary Clinton
that '...we have a right to
debate and disagree with any
administration." Do we, or
don't we?
There are people who have
sincere concerns and questions
about this bill. I'm one of them.
Not because someone told me
to have questions, but because I
have this habit of thinking for
myself. Because I've seen what
both sides have said and
frankly am not convinced a big
government program is the best
thing here.
And my thoughts about this
bill include wondering where in
the Constitution the federal
government is granted the
powerto take over health care.
Someday, maybe someone in
the federal government will
have the guts to admit that the
Constitution doesn't give them
the power to do a lot of the
things they do, but they're
gonna do it anyway, so suck it
up, Americans. Yeah, we'd be
furious, but at least we'd have
someone trying to be a little
honest.
In the meantime, look for me
at Tom Rooney's town hall
meeting on Aug. 25 in Lake
Placid.
And for those of you who
still think anyone with ques-
tions about this bill is part of a
"well-dressed mob," I promise

Summer Sunday
program moves
AVON PARK - The
Sunday program of the
Depot Museum's Summer
Sunday Series takes place
from 2-4 p.m. at the
University Center at South
Florida Community College,
rather than at the museum,
as originally announced.
The move was made
because of the need for more
space to accommodate the
larger-than-normal crowd


expected to attend Sunday's
Program: "Looking Back at
the 85-Year History of Avon
Park's Noon Rotary Club: A
Panel Discussion." The
panel will explore the rich
history that the Noon Rotary
has had with the Avon Park
community. Making up the
panel are four long-time
Rotarians: Don Farrens,
David Lanier, Stanley Wells
and Bud Worden.
The general public is
invited to attend the event.
August is membership
month for Rotary and
Rotarians are hoping to
recruit new members. One of
the goals of Rotary
International, the parent
organization, is to bring
business and professional
leaders together to provide
humanitarian service.
Sunday's program is a
partnership between the
Noon Rotary Club and the
Historical Society of Avon
Park. Walter Nunnallee,
Noon Club Rotarian, and
Larry Levey, historical soci-
ety president, will moderate
the program.
Admission is free and
light refreshments will be'

an unforgettable evening. But
party-goers won't see the
hard work that volunteers
have done behind the scenes
to make the inaugural event a
success.
For approximately five
months, the Harvest .for

has been toiling over the
details, securing sponsors
and promoting ticket sales -
all in the name of Good
Shepherd Hospice and its
Highlands County Hospice

he evening's activities will
include sampling plates and

time as a Good Shepherd
Hospice ambassador and as a
member .of the community
board. She was eager to lend
a hand and joined the Harvest
for Hospice committee early
on. In fact, she came up with
the name for the event."
I had a desire to be an
active volunteer with Good
Shepherd Hospice," Lana
said. "I was on the board of
directors at a hospice in
Virginia, and I know the
wonderful work that's done
by hospice."
Harvest for Hospice will
benefit the Good Shepherd

Hospice House. When com-
pleted, the hospice house will
provide patients pain man-


agement and symptom con-
trol in a comfortable, home-
like setting. Currently,
patients needing this type of
care must travel nearly 50
mile to the Good Shepherd
Hospice House in

Trio arrested for

home invasion
Continued from page 2A
after he was processed at the Highlands County
Jail.
To uncover Fort's identity, detectives with the
APPD used the two pieces of information they
were provided with by Clark and Timau - that
"Nic" lived in the Ridgedale Apartments as the
father of a young child, and was from Georgia..
A record query of the current tenants of the
Ridgedale Apartments showed a 1-year-old
child with the last name of Fort, not matching
his mother's name. A query of "Nic Fort" in the
Driver and Vehicle Information Database
revealed Fort, formerly of Cordele, Ga., with a
current Avon Park address.
Detectives separately showed the two other
suspects Fort's identification card photo in a
photographic lineup and both positively identi-
fied him.
Fort was charged with home invasion robbery
- nd was picked up on a warrant on Thursday.


Smokey Bear celebrating 65 years c


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Smokey Bear himself
made an appearance at the Aug. 4 county
commission meeting to share his apprecia-
tion to Highlands County for its work in
preventing wildfires.
With a hug from chairwoman Barbara
Stewart, and a tip of the hat from the other
commissioners, the board voted unani-
mpusly to make Aug. 9 "Smokey Bear Day"
all over Highlands County.
The event was mirrored by hundreds of
cities all across the nation as Smokey Bear
celebrates his 65th birthday this year.
Accompanied by, his firefighter
entourage, Smbkey Bear accepted the
proclamation personally during the com-
mission meeting.
According to the proclamation, Albert
Staechle animated the division's furry
spokesman in 1944, and still stands as front
man, er bear, for the U.S. Forest Service.
Usually soft-spoken, Smokey's


"Remember,
. only you can
prevent forest
fires" was offi-
cially changed
in public serv-
ice campaigns
to "Remember,
only .you can
prevent wild-
fires" and is
the longest running campaign in Ad
Council history.
The ad campaign has been far reaching.
Reportedly, 95 percent of people surveyed
by the Ad Council could hear the first two
words, "Only you," and could complete the
sentence.
The new Smokey, clad in blue jeans, isn't
afraid to add some hip slang to his reper-
toire by saying, "Get your Smokey on!"
It's a reminder for campers, vacationers,
hikers, tourists and homeowners to use
Smokey's tips when it comes to campfire


)f fire prevention

safety, debris burning, equipment mainte-:
nance and house safety.
The forest service is also celebrating
Smokey's birthday by releasing his newly
book, "Smokey Bear Story."
The illustrated children's book was.s
released on Smokey's birthdayin English
and Spanish at the USDA headquarters in
Washington, D.C.
It is Smokey's latest approach to wildfire;
education, which the U.S. Forest ServiceK
hopes will engage children in learning.
"Firefighters everywhere accept Smokey,
Bear as the symbol for wildfire preven-;
tion," the proclamation stated. "All of us"
whatever our age need to keep in mind'
Smokey's admonition: "Remember, only;
you can prevent wildfires." :
SSmokey also has a page on Facebook.
with more than 7,000 fans.
There are also several Smokey the Bear:
groups sprinkled throughout Facebook,:
such as "I Support Smokey the Bear" and:
thb "Smokey the Bear Fan Club."

Brannen Dorman

From Streak and heat to Thunder and cold


By AMY HART
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING- In science
Brannen Dorman learned
that lightning comes before
thunder. ..
In football, he learned the
same thing as his choice of
college took him from being
a Blue Streak to becoming a
Thunder.
Dorman moved over 1,200
miles after graduating as part
of Sebring High School's
class of 2008 to Wheaton,
Illinois to attend Wheaton
College.
He spent the fall playing
fullback for the Division III


Wheaton Thunder football
team.
Choosing a college is a
tough decision for anyone,
and the decision to move
that far from home was a
huge one.
When asked about the
decision, Dorman said, "I
felt that God was opening
some doors for me to go
there and I haven't regretted
any of it."
When he moved, he didn't
know any of the guys and
had only contacted his future,
roommate over the phone.
The team came in handy
for thistransition.


"There was an instant
bond between all of the guys
on the team which made it
much easier to adjust,"
Dorman said.
Once he made it'through
meeting people, Dorman
faced the cold,
"We made it to the nation-
al semifinals and lost to the
future national champions so
we played until the end of
December," Dorman said of
his first season.
The only downside to
doing that well was that they
played their last 4 games in
the snow, something the for-

Former Blue Streak Brannen Dorman, now as a member of
the Wheaton(College Thunder, can't leave his sleeves rolled
up through the full football season anymore.

Saunders were in a virtuall tie
for first i) the Boss 15-16-
year old di vision coming into

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne

Vick and

Victorino, a

vexing state

of affairs
Now I'm the one of the
last people in the world who
would be an apologist or
enabler of Michael Vick, but
there's really not much to
say in opposition to his com-
ing back to play in the NFL.
Of course, his signing
with the Philadelphia Eagles
Thursday was making the
rounds of all the sports talk
shows, and there were the
fair share of call-ins and e-
mails showing the disdain
and disgust many have with
him.
I can't say I fault anyone
holding that opinion, as I too
share those sentiments.
I also never really thought
much of him as a quarter-
back.
Sure, he's a phenomenal
athlete and exciting to watch
as he'd dart around on one
of his runs.
But his stats as a passer
weren't much to look at,
even if he was supposedly '.
able to throw a ball out of
the stadium.
So, there's npt a whole lot
of positive things I have to
say about the man, and I
found it a bit disturbing
when, in his press confer-
ence. he stated that he now
saiw dogfighting as a 'point-
less" activity that he couldn't
believe he wasiqvolved in.
Not because f.'tl k0.,
disturbing ahd horrifi.j. 1
nature of what was talcii''
place, but because it as.
pointless. . .
But facts are fhcts,''
He served his allotted tinie
for his wrong .do in g, .s
reportedly now"doing wor'
with and/or on behalf of the
Humane Society and has
been given clearance ly the
league to resume his csc er.
Everyone deserves ajec-
ond chance, the saying goes,
and personal thoughts aside,
this is Vick's.
Though there is someone
'that's not likely) to get anoth-
er chance to see a Cubs
game, in person, anytime

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.

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

ticipants there will be another walk/run


this year.

"It was difficult for me
during the season because I

much playing time at all;


When you go from playing
every down of every game
to sitting behind someone

tough thing to deal with,"
Dorman said of the transi-

After successful spring

Aug. 4 marked big

day for Coast Guard


Special to the News-Sun
' The oldest; continuous,
American sea-services
branch of the military cele-
brated its 216th birthday on
Aug. 4.
"The Coast Guard repre-
sents a multi-mission, mar-
itime, and military service,"
according to Admiral Thad
W. Allen, commandant of the
Coast Guard."We continue to
grow and evolve to help guar-
antee the maritime safety,
security, and stewardship of
our oceans and waterways."
S "The Highlands County
Veteran Services Office takes
this opportunity to salute the
Coast Guard. Your efforts in
protecting our lakes, rivers,
waterways, oceans, and
coastline allow us to continue
to live a safer life with the
freedoms we continue to
enjoy," praises Joseph A.
Dionne, county Veteran


Services officer.
The Coast Guard is
involved in promoting safe
boating and water sports,
security of our waterways
and coastlines, and steward-
ship of the waters surround-
ing United States properties
and of the oceans. Further,
the members of the Coast
Guard are actively involved
in the war on terrorism, pro-
tection and preservation of
the marine environment, ever
watchful of the natural
resources, and providing pro-
tection to those using the
waterways for trade and com-
merce.
The U.S. Coast Guard can
trace its beginning to Aug. 4,
1790 when the very first U.S.
Congress authorized a fleet of
revenue marine cutters meant
to enforce tariff and trade
laws and to protect the young
country.

Simpson's stopper an attractive


tree that attracts lots of wildlife


"He that plants trees loves oth-
ers beside himself."
- Thomas Fuller

The motivation to garden may be
different for each person.
Some may want the serenity that
comes from the feel of the soil in
their hands, the sun on their face
and the joy of seeing their efforts
achieved.
For others it may be a simple
matter of having a nice looking
yard.
Still others may have a more
practical approach and the goal is
to produce shade or grow vegeta-
bles and fruit.
For many, the desired achieve-
ment may be attracting wildlife.
Some aspire to make a better
earth and make the world a more
beautiful and purified place.
Whatever the motivation to gar-
den may be, the Simpson's stopper
(Myrcianthes fragrans) is a great
choice to enhance any garden or
landscape.
A member of the myrtle family,
the Simpson's stopper is native to
Florida and the Caribbean.
Considered a multi-functional tree,
the stopper seems to have some-
thing to offer.every gardener.
For those whose goal is to gar-
den for the love of gardening, the


News From
The
Watershed


Simpson's stop,-
per is a. tree that,
once established,
needs very little
care which
allows the gar-
dener more time
for other areas.
They are multi-
functional plants
that can be used
as background
fillers, shade pro-


ducers and
CorineBurgess wildlife attrac-
tors.
The tree blooms regularly
throughout the year and produces a
beautiful fragrance. It can reach
heights of 25 feet and yield flowers
and fruit at the same time. Being
an evergreen, the stopper does not
make the mess that many other
types of trees do.
As far as a'landscaping plant, the
stopper-is tough to beat. These
trees take trimming and shaping'
quite well. They can be encouraged
to develop into a canopy tree or be
kept short and tightly rounded. One
of the many appealing attributes of
the stopper is its tendency toward
multi-stem branching. The tree is
visually appealing with its very
distinct, red, peeling bark, multiple'
branches, bloonis.and fruit. It is a


great way to enhance the looks of
any yard or landscape.
If the goal is practical and the
gardener wishes to produce shade
and food, the stopper is still a good
choice. Although it is a fairly small
tree, it does produce a shady, shad-
owy area when planted in the right
place. The fruits that the tree pro-
duces are edible and have a sweet,
citrus-like, piney taste. Tales about
the tree's fruit and bark being used
as a treatment for diarrhea are
plentiful - thus the name "stop-
per." However, there is no known
proof that the plant actually
achieves these medicinal results.
Attracting butterflies and birds is
one of the many benefits of plant-
ing the Simpson's stopper. They
are dependable bloomers and the
nectar and fruit the tree produces is
a favorite of many species of
wildlife.
A multi-tasker, the stopper will
fruit and flower at the same time,
producing a veritable smorgasbord
for many types of critters.
Monarchs and other varieties of
butterflies love the nectar that the
flowers produce. Mockingbirds,
cardinals and other types of birds
enjoy the orange berries that the
tree puts forth in the summer
months.
Other types of animals feast on

The Simpson's stopper can be used as a shrub or a small tree. The plant
is unique because it blooms and fruits at the same time. Many types of
wildlife are attracted to the plant.


the juicy fruits and all of these
* creatures find the comfort of shel-
ter in its branches.
Simpson's stopper grows best in
sun to partial shade. Along with the
aromatic blooms, it has spicy, fra-
grant leaves, which smell a little
like eucalyptus. It is a very beauti-
ful tree and although it is a slow
grower, when placed in the right
place it would be a wonderful addi-
tion to most any landscape or gar-
den.
Several varieties of native trees
along with shrubs, vines and flow-
ering plants will be available at our
Air Potato Exchange Day on Jan.
9. The Simhpson's stopper is one of


the many choices that will be
offered. All plants for the program
will be purchased from the Lord's
Farm Nursery located in Lake
Placid.
The exchange will take place at
the Agriculture Center in Sebring.
More details and workshops on the
program will be forthcoming in the
near future. If you want to know
more, feel free to give us a call at
402-6545 or check out our Web
site at www.highlandsswcd.org.

Pioneer 'cow huntress'

of Lorida: Nell Prescott


Mowing Underwater by Bruce Mozert

SFCC Museum of

Florida Art and

Culture announces

2009-2010 schedule


Wild
Florida
Nancy.Dale


It's hard to visualize
petite, gentle woman Nell
Prescott with her Southern
manner and charm as a
tough-hided "cow huntress,"
however, listening to the sto-
ries over 84 years of her life,
it is clear that she stood her
Sown along with the best of
them.
Growing up in the rural
prairies and palmettos of
Lorida during the 1900s
Depression "was not being
raised in the lap of luxury,"
says Nell Prescott, however,
it was how pioneer "cow
hunters".carved a living
from wild Florida. Nell's
home for more than 70 years
is nestled beneath arching
oaks at trail's end off a rut-
ted path where a red-eared
turtle lays its eggs unper-
turbed by time or occasional
traffic. Although Nell says
her horseback riding days
are over, on occasion she
uses her golf cart to drive
back a stray cow heading for
the highway.
"I saw that a steer had
gotten through the fence, so
I herded him back to the
pasture, but that rascal got
out again. This time I made
a bunch of racket and scared
him away from the road. My
nephews, Mike and Quinn
Ashton, came by later and
fixed the fence, but you
know, cows are not as dumb
as people make them, if they
know where they can get
'through a fence, they will
come back to that spot again
and try to get out."
Iva Bass, Nell's mother,
the youngest of nine chil-
dren, *ias born in Whittier
now Kenansville, and passed
on in 1997 at the age 103.
Iva met and married Rudy
Ashton in 191-94 he was born
east of St. Cloud. They had
three children: Ruby born in
Kissimmee in 1921, Nell
born in 1925, and Miles
(nicknamed "Babe") born in
1927.
After Ruby was in the
seventh grade, "we moved to
Lorida from Avon Park but
we had to rent an apartment
in downtown Sebring to go
to school, as there was no


bus to pick us up in the
sticks." Nell says they were
proud that Ruby graduated
as valedictorian from
Sebring High School since
"Miles and I were not the '
intellectual types and would:
rather have a good time thhn',
study!"
Adapting to rural condi-
tions over a lifetime and
growing up during the Great"
Depression instilled in Nell *
a keen awareness of
"change." "I grew up on dirt
roads with kerosene lamps, a
wood stove, and no running
water; we had to carry a
bucket up to the house.
Today, there are paved
roads, electricity, and satel-
lite TVs. In the cow busi-
ness, we weqt from scrub
cattle raised in palmetto
woods to 'blooded' [bred-
up] cattle raised on
improved pasture. All. of
these things have made life '"
more comfortable and man-
ageable but I enjoyed those '*<
yesteryear and learned to be
happy with what I had, not "
wanting those things we
couldn't afford. This still 2
applies today." .
