Running to remember
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
clhrisoplher ruflt 'y'ne ~ s sun.com
SEBRING -One hundred and thirtd individuals gath-
ered at Highlands Hammock State Park Saturday morn-
Sing in an act of remembrance and appreciation.
They were taking part in the local second annual Run
For the Fallen, an event organized by Sue Sawyer, a
Sebring resident whose son. Sgt. Marcus Mathes. was
killed outside of Baghdad in 2008.
The event is about raising awareness; about keeping
memories of those who have sacrificed fresh and ali\e.
"We want to remember the military," Sawyer told the
group massed in front of her on a beautiful morning, "not
just today, but everyday - especially the men who have
given their lives."
Sawyer got the idea for the nearly 5K run/walk shortly
after she learned the painful news of her son's death.
Mathes, 26, and his comrade, Sgt. Mark .Stone, 22,
who served together in the U. S. Army 10th Mountain
Division,. were killed instantly by a rocket's direct hit
while standing by their vehicle in a motor pool on April
28,2008.
Devastated during the immediate months after her loss,

One of the ways that Sue Sawyer keeps the memory of
her son Marcus Mathes alive is by organizing the annu-

Sawyer was restless and at loose ends. She began spend-
ing time on the Internet. One day she Googled her son's
name and was stunned to find more than 200,000 hits.
"A lot of them were newspaper articles," she said, "and
military write-ups."

Avon Park CRA board

looking into Brickell's

stalled progress


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.uffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK -
Members of the
Community Redevelop-
ment,Agency's Main Street
Advisory Board directed
CRA director Wes
Hoaglund to look into the
stalled progress on the
Brickell Building during
their Thursday afternoon:
Budget workshop. '
.Work has stopped and the
owners have seemingly dis-
appeared.
Hoaglund was told to
track down the owners and
discover their plans.
Hoaglund, who has expe-
rience with public histori-
cal renovation, advised the
board that the work done on'


the Brickell Building so far
is disappointing. It does not
meet the. Secretary. of
Interior's historical renova-
tion standards, for example,
he said, and no provisions
have been made for handi-
capped access.
He suggested the owners
be encouraged to undo
much of the exterior work
already completed, so a
renovation more in keeping
with the 'character 'of the
building could be done.
It was suggested that
additional facade 'grant
funds be offered to the
owners to encourage their
cooperation.' The board had
approved a $20,000 facade
grant in 2008-09, but not all
the money was used before
work stopped.

EDITORIAL & OPINION


TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Good sense beats


high drama

We think the Center for Disease

Control and the school district
have made the right call in
planning to keep schools open should an
outbreak of H1N1 (commonly called
swine flu) occur locally.


We applaud the no-non-
sense, practical approach.
It is about time we all
calmed ourselves down and
took a collective breath.
What with the stress of the
economy and living through
tumultuous change, too many
of us are over-reacting, driv-
en by emotion rather than
fact.
The current erosion of
civility rots the foundation of
our nation and drives us
apart. Too many individuals
prefer the high drama of act-
ing out to the hard work of
creating solutions and
accepting compromise.
So, it is a relief to find
government agencies taking a
sensible approach to a real
problem without becoming
hysterical.
In fact, when it comes to
public health the greatest
defense against the spread of
a disease like swine flu is the
family - that is, 'sensibly
keeping sick children (and
adults) home.
We know that isn't always
as easy to manage as it


sounds - many of us are sin-
gle parents, or half of a cou-
ple who both hold down jobs,
so we know the logistical dif-
ficulties involved in keeping
children home - but staying
home is the single most
important deterrent to
spreading disease, as well as
the healthiest choice for the
individual who is sick.
From a different perspec-
tive, children learn best in a
structured, predictable envi-
ronment. To interrupt the
healthy majority's education-
al process by closing down
schools does more harm than
good.
By taking sensible precau-
tions - getting inoculated,
washing hands, covering
coughs, removing the sick
from the group until well,
everyone should survive with
a minimum of disruption.
Thank you again to the
CDC and the Highlands
County school district for
responding with calm and*
good sense, during an age of
over-the-top rant.


An absence of comfort


I scan the news
on a regular basis
whether it's from
the computer, the
radio, television or
other newspapers. I
guess I can be con-
. sidered a news
junkie, which dur-
ing these difficult At
times is not always A
a good thing with Random
all of the bad news , Romo
I omo a o
that is out there. Ilaishington
Anyway, I came


-across an Associated Press
story some time ago that not
only caught my eye, but it
also caused my heart to sink.
In Sandy Run, S.C. there
lived a woman named Mary
Sue Merchant. Her death by
natural causes left her neigh-
bors reflecting on their own
lives a bit more closely.
Why? Because the 72-
year-old woman died in a
tightly locked house on 25
acres in the community, with
only a dog for company. Her
,death went unnoticed for
more than 18 months.
Nobody knew the reclusive
widow was gone - not even
:when the house was sold for
;back taxes while her decom-
posing body lay inside.
S,At some point, the lonely
'dog died of thirst in the
same room.
Even the local sheriff
acknowledged he didn't
know Mrs. Merchant existed.
.Only after her body was
found last week did it occur
to neighbors they hadn't
seen her in a while. The dis-
covery left some people
.wondering "if they've lost a
fundamental connection of


small-town life."
The preacher
who spoke about
Merchant comment-
ed on how the com-
munity is lost with
everyone being so
busy and doing
their own thing.
The residents all
"stay within our
comfort zone."
Maybe so, but
it's a sad state of
affairs when we are


so busy that we can't check
on someone who we know is
alone.
Mrs. Merchant's husband
had died in 1985. She lost
touch with her own older
sister years ago. A sister-in-
law who tried to call found
the phone disconnected and
figured she had gotten a cell
phone instead. She only tried
the one time.
Only after they were noti-
fied of her death did neigh-
bors recall not seeing her.
Mail didn't pile up because
she had a post office. box,
but wouldn't you think
someone would question
why there was no forwarding
address for the mounting
pile of mail. Utilities were
shut off after a while'
because of unpaid bills, so
That wouldn't necessarily
throw up any red flags.

This week I've decided to
take a break from the serious
stuff all over the place'and
revisit one of my favorite
topics: stupid criminal sto-
ries.
Some of you who read this
column (and I appreciate
each and every one of you)
might wonder why I like
these type of stories so
much. There are two rea-
sons': one, they are quite
often hilarious, and two, I
get a feeling of security
when I hear that those who
are breaking the law have all
the brainpower of an amoe-
ba.
It's not hard to find these
stories. Today I discovered a
Web site, www.dumbcrimi-
nals.com/, that contains a
number of these tales of
criminals who should've
stayed home instead of try-
ing to score a fast buck.
For example, there is the
tale of the man in New
Zealand who decided to help
himself to some money in a
cash register. He waited until
the employee wasn't looking
and stuck his hand in the
drawer, pulling out a wad of
cash.
Two problems with this
heist: one, before he'd
grabbed the money, he gave
the employee not only his
name, but his phone number.
I'm not sure why. Perhaps he
thought they'd ask how the
service was or something
like that.
The second problem was
that he was caught doing the


Laura's
Look
Laura Ware

deed by no less than four
security cameras in the store.
Before you assume they
were invisible, there was
apparently a camera in plain
view. You have to wonder if
he smiled and waved as he
pocketed the cash.
Lest you think that stupid
criminals don't exist in these
United States, I call your
attention to an Associated
Press story about a man try-
ing to purchase four cell
phones. According to the
story, he used a check that
was supposed to be a
cashier's check, or, as it was
labeled, a "cahier's check." I,
am not kidding.
If that wasn't stupid
enough, the shipping address
he provided was no less than
that of the FBI field office.
He actually waited there to
completee the transaction.
Unfortunately for him, the
FBI was there as well.
Sadly, those sworn to
uphold the law are not
immune to becoming stupid
criminals. According to a
story in Gwinnett Daily Post
last month, Sean Filyaw, a
police cadet in the Gwinnett
County. Police Department's
training academy, allegedly
decided to break in to an
acquaintance's apartment.
Said acquaintance came
home, realized someone was


in his apartment, and called
the cops. Said cops suppos-
edly caught Filyaw carting a
Playstation 2 - dressed in his
cadet uniform.
Filyaw claims that the
game system was his and he
was just getting it back. Uh-
huh. Did he skip the class
where they explained that
.you can't commit a crime to
get your stuff back? Had he
not followed the last OJ
Simpson trial, where
Simpson tried to make the
same argument?
Well, he was encouraged
to resign from the police
academy, which he did. He
was charged with felony bur-
glary, and is probably not
the Gwinnett County Police'
Department's favorite per-
son.
Lastly, authorities in
Suffolk, Va. were on the
lookout for a burglar who
attempted to rob a house at
the end of June. They have
an idea of what he looks like
- apparently he found a cell
phone in the house and took
a picture of himself. He then
fled the home, leaving the
phone with his picture still
on it.
Dumbcriminals.com claim
the police describe the crimi-
nal as "fuzzy and blurry
looking."
See why I like these so
much?

Death certificates
for abortions?
Editor:
Attention President
Obama & cabinet: Here in
America, nationwide laws
require that it is mandatory
for a death certificate to be
issued for the death of every
human life.
Therefore, do you believe
that for each human life
death from the abortion of
every unborn human-life
fetus, the how and when of
such death occurring, should
be officially registered, if for
no other reason than it be
listed as "infant mortality?"

The edge of anarchy'
Editor:
Witching the recent
orchestrated dust ups to
interrupt the attempts of
Democratic legislators to
conduct a discussion of
pending bills with their con-
stituents, I am reminded of a
piece of Republican illegal
violence from the 2000 elec-
tion, a full court press organ-
ized attack on the offices of
the Registrar of Elections for
Dade County.
Then in the process of
conducting a recount of
some 10,000 ballots in the
Bush-Gore presidential elec-
tion, the office was attacked
by a mob of Republican
thugs brought in to stop the


recount, stop it at any cost.
Then papered over and
presented as a "grass roots"
protest and called the
"Brooks Brothers Riot" by a
compliant press, we now
know that the first 10 pro- .
testers in the lead were all
Republican staffers and
employees of Republican
congressmen or soon to
become their employees. It
permitted George Bush to
frustrate the will of the peo-
ple of Florida and, with a
compliant Florida bureaucra-
cy, steal our electoral votes
and the presidential election.
The current outrages
occurring at the town hall
meetings are no less sinister
nor spontaneous when the,
alleged grass roots protesters
show up with hand-printed
talking points, distributed by
insurance company lobbyists
and Republican neo-cons,
supposedly critical of legis-
lation that has not yet been
written. What is at risk here
is a grave threat to the order-
ly process of democratic
government.
Not content to abide by
the will of the majority and
the democratic process, an
appeal to mob rule to reverse
the results of the election
and restore the secret power
once exercised by the neo
conservatives.
We should all be alert to
the danger that the disrup-
tion of these meetings is not
part of the orderly process of


voicing dissent nor intended
to inform the voters of the
issues. Rather it is a danger-
ous attempt to shut down-
and stifle discourse and
defeat the attempt of our
elected officials to engage in
a dialogue with their con-
stituents.
Make no mistake, this is
not a protest solely concern-
ing health care issues; It is a
much more serious attempt
to undermine our system of
government.

Politicians are all
self serving
Editor:
After listening and reading
about the current political
scene, I feel I need to let off
some steam, as well as offer
a suggestion on how to cor-
rect the problem. In my
opinion our way of life is in
trouble due to our govern-
ment being taken over by
politicians that not only do
not represent their con-
stituents, but only represent
their own twisted interest.
It makes no difference
what party they are from. It
makes no difference what
race or sex they are. It
makes no difference where
they are from or their educa-
tion. These politicians no
longer represent the people
that elect them. The reason

EDITORIAL & OPINION


Continued from page 4A
for this is there are no longer
any politicians that actually
represent the people that
elect them. They all feel
they know more about what
is good for you and me, than
we ourselves do.
It does not make a differ-
ence if one votes for this
politician or that politician.
They are all self serving.
This is very obvious when
you note that our elected
officials are trying to pass a
health care bill that will be
forced on the average citizen
that they themselves are
unwilling to be bound by.
Don't get me wrong, I
strongly feel the health care
system in the United States
needs to be fixed. It is a
bureaucratic, greed driven
system. A lot of this is due
to the fact that you and I
have elected judges, who are
really nothing but politicians
that allow frivolous laws
suits that cost tax payer
money and raise medical
insurance premiums. It
forces doctors and hospitals
to issue test for people they
do not really need. They
must test for every possible
thing in order to avoid frivo-
lous law suits.
It is absolutely ridiculous
to charge $30,000 to $40,000
to set a broken leg or treat a
bee sting, but this happens
because doctors must check
for every possible thing in
order to avoid being found
guilty of malpractice and
they must charge enough to
pay the very large insurance
premiums. If we had com-
mon sense judges, instead of
politicians, they would throw
out the frivolous suits and -
:only allow the ones with real
:merit.
That is why in the next
:election I will not vote for
:ariy incumbent politician. If
'there is no one running that I
trust to represent me, I will
:write in "None of the above"
;on my ballet. If enough peo-
ple do this it will send a
;message. That message
;should be that we are not
'going to put up with crooked
politicians that do not repre-
sent the. wants and needs of
the people that elect them.
Politicians make all kinds
of promises when they are
running for office. As we all
know, they keep very few of
these. Besides the above I
suggest we push for a law
that holds politicians legally
responsible for keeping their
promises. If they make a
promise to the public orally
or in writing that they do not
keep while they are in office,
they should be held liable
and be fined. That fine
should be high enough that it
would deter them from mak-
ing promises they can't or
won't keep. If we do not
wake up and make politi-
cians represent us instead of
only themselves or their
crooked:interest we deserve
what we get.

Socialism is
un-American
Editor:
First let me say socialism
is un-American. The
American Heritage diction-
ary defines socialism as a
system of social organiza-
tions in which the means of
producing and distributing
goods are owned by a cen-


.tralized government that
plans and controls the econ-
only. Both Webster and
Random House identify
socialism as a Marxist theo-
ry. Now if this sounds like
something that you would be
unhappy with, I suggest you
keep your eyes and ears
open and be alert to what
you can do to keep that from
happening here.
When we no longer have
the incentive to improve our
status because we will only
have what the government
decides to give us, there will
be no goals to strive for. We
will be under the control of
the government. That is not
freedom.
I believe if we had an
honest poll, there would be
very few, if any, who would
vote for'this way of life,, but
little by little it is happening
right here. I am very disap-
pointed in our leaders. I am
praying that God will open
their eyes and show them the
more excellent way of life.
Recently the National
Republican Committee
passed a resolution nailing
the Obama administration
for proposing, passing and
implementing socialist pro-
grams through federal legis-
lation pushing our country
towards European styled
socialism and government
control. All this government
spending has strings
attached. Banking is being
nationalized, healthcare is on
the way to government con-
trol, auto industries, of
which many have been delet-
ed, theses were things that
should have been maintained
to give people jobs which
are desperately needed, all
these stimulus packages.
I don't see much it has
stimulated, all this work-
men's compensation (extend-
ed). There are many who
might get the idea that if
they don't work, the govern-
ment will take care of me'
anyway.
.When we get so far in
debt as a nation, we the peo-
ple are the ones who will
owe the money. We may
become enslaved because of
all the handouts. I know
most of us sometimes in life
will need a little help, but as
much as possible, we all
need to live within our
means without going into
debt. When we owe someone
else, what we have is not
ours; it belongs to the person
with whose money it was
bought.
God's work tells us to owe
no man anything but to love


one another. It also tells us
that if a man doesn't work,
he doesn't eat. May God
* help us all to take responsi-
bility for ourselved; at least
let that be our goal. He has
provided us a book of
instruction, but it is of little
value if we don't know what
it says. May we all seek His
blessed will in all we do
each day.

Thanks for help with
fire at business
Editor:
On July 31 a fire broke
out at my business, Lake
Placid Moving & Storage, on
U.S. 27 in Lake Placid.
We would like to extend
our deepest gratitude to the
man who saw the smoke and
called 911 that we never got
the chance to thank, to the
many Florida Highway
Patrol troopers who immedi-
ately responded, the
Highlands County Sheriffs
Department, the EMS work-
ers and to the many, many
volunteer firemen from the
Lake Placid Fire
Department, Placid Lakes
Fire Department, Leisure
Lakes Fire Department and
Highlands Park Fire
Department who all respond-
ed to fight the fire.
After the fire departments
quickly put the fire out and
just as quickly determined
what started the fire, all of
these men and women
helped us move out an entire
office stacked floor to ceil-
ing with medical records
before they could get dam-
aged by smoke, fire or water.
Everyone there worked tire-
lessly until everything was
out of harm's way and the
building was secure for the
night.
Our fire departments are
all volunteers who give self-
lessly of their time and
efforts to help us when we
need them. Not only do each
and every one of them go
through extensive training,
. they handle each job with
courtesy and professional-
ism. Our sincere thanks to
all of you who were there
that night for a job well
done..

you have.
The local florist of 30
years told the Associated
Press, "In this day, we're
supposed to be out of every-
body's business, but I think
sometimes that goes too far."
I agree.
I try to keep a check on
my widowed neighbor. He's
been so good to me and my
children by helping keep an
eye on us that it's only right
that we keep an eye on him
as he gets older. I know what
to watch for and don't hesi-
tate to make a wellness


check when something does-
n't seem right. I also let him
know when we are going to
be gone for any length of
time so he doesn't get con-
cerned. That's just' what car-
ing neighbors do.
I am also a member of a
very caring church. We are
told when someone is not
well, is hospitalized or on
vacation. Members send
cards, e-mails and make
phone calls. If a regular
member is not in attendance
and no one has heard any-
thing, phone calls are made
again."


We keep close tabs on
each other and are always
willing to lend a helping
hand. It's not a matter of
being in somebody's "busi-
ness," but showing that we
care.
I am grateful for my
neighbors and for my church
family. As lonely as I some-
times feel, I know there are
people out there who care.
It's too bad Mrs. Merchant
didn't have that comfort.

Editor:
I would like to give my
sincere thanks to the County

Department and whoever
else was responsible for
repaving Highlands
Boulevard in Avon Park.
The bumps in this road
had to have been hazardous
for the high profile vehicles
that use it all the time, see-
ing as the Highlands Lakes

stationed at the end of this
road.
I just wanted to thank
everyone that was responsi-.

repaved, and the workers
who repaved it.

Man in custody after shooting BB gun at officer


By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.comr
AVON PARK - An Avon
Park man has been arrested
after he allegedly shot a BB
gun at an Avon Park police
officer.
"It looked like a real gun,"
APPD Chief Matthew P.
Doughney said. "He's lucky
he's not in themorgue."
Miguel Angel Morales
Lopez, 20, was arrested
shortly after 3 a.m. Friday,
charged with aggravated
assault on a law enforcement
officer, committing a second
degree felony while wearing
a mask or hood, loitering,
resisting an officer without
violence, and tampering with
evidence.
It started at approximately
1:20 a.m. when Officer
Allison Smith was on proac-
tive foot patrol in the area of


Lakeside Park.
When she reached a paviil-
ion on the south side of Lake
Tulane, she encountered two
people who were dressed in
dark clothing and wearing
bandanas over their faces.
While speaking to them,
another two people who were
in the same attire reportedly
began walking towards
Smith.
After she reportedly identi-
fied herself as a police offi-
cer, one of the two walking
toward the pavilion stopped
and, with both hands, pointed
an unknown object at Smith.
"The subject was standing
in a position commonly used
to fire handguns and a pro-
jectile was fired at Officer
Smith," Doughney said in a
press release.
The subject then reported-


ly fled the scene on foot and
evaded capture near Fogle
Street and the CSX railroad
tracks.
Later that night just after 3
a.m., Lopez was reportedly
the subject of a suspicious
person call on Grouper
Avenue and the Highlands
County Sheriff's Office
responded.
When deputies arrived,
Lopez again fled on foot but
was taken into custody; the
press release stated.
He allegedly had BBs on
him when he was apprehend-
ed and post-Miranda admit-
ted to firing at Smith,
although he said he was not
aware that she was a police
officer.
Lopez remained in the
Highlands County Jail on
Friday evening.

Aquatic Farm in Venus: ,.

gift to Calway from one of
the major theme parks in
Orlando that wished to
remain anonymous (squeak,

Calway was recommended
to the park by the Florida
University Laboratory in
Ruskin as one of the natural-
ists who knew and under-
stood the relationships in
nature, and an environmen-
talist who kept his farm as
close possible to the original
Florida plan.
Calway ships his custom-
bred fish all over the world
from his 33 ponds, and sells
the plants to those who wish
to build custom water gar-
dens.
One of the unique prod-
ucts of the farm are mosqui-
to fish, small relatives to
guppies who consume both
the pesky larvae and the fly-
ing bugs with zeal.
According to Calway,
1,000 of his natural extermi-
nators can eat between
250,000 and 300,000 mos-
quito larvae per day, keeping
the disease-carrying pests in
control.

He is hoping to work out

ties to stock the little fish
Sand help hold down the mos-
quitos naturally.
The surreal water lilies -
pink, blue, white, and red -
are cultivated in recycled
bathtubs, with flowering gin-
ger and Hawaiian tai,
according to Mysteria.
"I learn something new
* here every day," she said.
The walking catfish are to
be featured on an upcoming
cable nature show, but,
According to Calway, are an

Why Happy Trails?
"When I was a kid, I liked
Gene Autry and that bunch,"
Calway-said.
He sang a little of the
famous ditty quietly by one
of the ponds in response to
being fed the opening line.
He was smiling when he
sang, but it was clear that
Patches was the musical tal-
ent on the farm.
Those interested in the
koi, other fish, or plants can
visit the farm with an
appointment by calling 465-
6799, but be prepared to
enjoy the afternoon and the
conversation.


CRA board, sets priorities for Main Street


Continued from page 1A
to consider in its turn.
Facade grants, both the funding of them
and educating eligible property owners about
them, took highest priority.
Board chairman Devon Donaldson, in par-
ticular, hopes to see more fresh coats of paint
in the Main Street area. He was only partly
joking when he said he wanted to hand deliv-
er cans of paint to certain property owners
and tell them, "Here's the paint, now paint it."
In addition to allotting $100,000 for grants,
the board put aside $2,500 for an advertising
campaign to explain the grants' availability
and procurement process.
Part of the advertising budget also is to be
used to better market city special events and
businesses.
Members agreed that $75,000 should be
used to create a gateway sign at the west end
of the Mall, near its intersection with U.S. 27.
The sign would announce the businesses,
agencies and cultural spaces on Main Street.
The idea of the sign has been around for
some time, with some individuals recom-
mending a lighted component that could
announce special events.
Members recommended another $75,000
for the drilling of wells, which would be used


to irrigate the Mall. Currently city water is
used and charged at a residential rate, mean-
ing a water bill of about $80,000 a year.
Donaldson pointed out the wells would pay
for themselves in a year.
Advisory board member Will Bennett
raised the issue of creating a business incuba-
tor. Wayne McFarland, also an advisory board
member, owns a property that would be an
ideal setting, Bennett said.
While acknowledging Bennett and
McFarland would not be able to vote on the
idea because of their conflicts of interest, the
board as a whole was enthusiastic about the
suggestion.
This incarnation would be mostly geared
for small office type businesses, but the hope
also is to encourage light industry into the
area.
Members agreed to allot $20,000 for four
targeted demolitions. These are structures
which have gone through the condemnation
process. The cost of the individual demolition
- $5,000 - will become a lien on the prop-
erty.
Members recommended remaining funds
be put aside for administrative costs, unspec-
ified Mall improvements, Mall maintenance,
special events, and Forestry grants.

in cash and prizes that will
be given away during the
competition.
"We're very proud that
our loyal main sponsors
have continued to stick with
us, even in our current
economy, Diana Walker,
Idol founder and president,
said. '"With the addition of a
few new sponsors this year
too, we're thrilled to be able
to actually increase the
prize money slightly, during
some very challenging
times."
The adult champion will
win $2,000, while the
younger winners will each
get $600. Prizes will be
awarded down to fifth
place.
The audience will get
some prizes, too.
"We worked hard to get a
few extra prizes this year
that we can give to our fans
who come out to, watch the
shows," Walker said.
"We've always had a close
connection with our 'Idol-
faithful', and hope to sur-
prise them from time to
time with extra giveaways
during the shows.

New sound system
The historic Circle
recently received a major
audio "facelift," as the
park's sound system was
substantially upgraded this
summer. For 2009, the
Heartland Idol series will
utilize the new system and
enhance it even further with
equipment supplied by
Carlton Music.

More exposure for
kids
This year, the kids' and
adult's shows are kept more
separate, showcasing the
children's competition,
which is always a crowd
favorite. This allows the
normally eight-show series
to expand to 11 action-
packed nights for 2009.
This year, the finales for
each of the two youth divi-
sions are separated, allow-
ing for more emphasis on
each division's "champi-
onship night."
Adults begin the first of
their four qualifying rounds
on Sept. 17.

been pared to a field of five
for 2009. While veteran

Joining those three will.be a
rotating judge/on-air per-
sonality from the Cohan
Radio Group. The "celebri-
ty judge," a favorite addi-
tion from the 2008 series is
returning for 2009.

New theme nights
While the qualifying
rounds are challenging, the
adult division's three semi-
final nights are always
hugely popular with the
contestants and their ador-
ing legions of fans. This
year's themes include clas-
sic rock, soundtracks and
show tunes, and sock
hop/'50s. New for this year
is the addition of a Jimmy
Buffett-themed perform-
ance during the first song of
the adult finale.

Keeping it local
In the past, Idol contest-
ants needed simply be a res-
ident of Florida to enter the
competition.
"For 2009, we felt we
wanted to keep the competi-
tion a little closer to home,
so we're requiring all of the
contestants to be residents
of our six-county region,"
Walker said "That region
includes Highlands, Hardee,


Polk, Hendry, Okeechobee
and DeSoto counties.

One emcee
A familiar face from
Idol's beginning, Don
Elwell has always worked
with others during the
show's previous five stints,
alternating with Bill Cross,
Rooter Rush and David
Flowers along the way. For
2009,.Elwell finds himself
alone for.the 11 shows, but
he also finds himself look-
ing forward to the chal-
lenge. "David had a few
scheduling conflicts, so it
appears that I'll be flying
solo this year," Elwell stat-
ed. "We'll likely lose about
90 percent of the crowd
because of this, but I'll try
to do my best for those five
or t10 fans that stick around
anyway."

What to bring
* Lawn Chair or blan-
ket: Come early, as some
folks stake their "claim"
hours before the show's
start time to get a seat up
close to the stage..
* Umbrella: You never
know, this is Florida, after
all.
* Bug Spray: See previ-
ous note
* Money: You don't
need a lot, but that food
smells (and tastes) so good.
Plus, there are 50/50 raffles
each night.
* A willingness to have
a lot of fun: The singers
love the applause and cheer-
ing, the judges love the boo-
ing and jeering, and Elwell
seems to thrive off of the
crowd's energy. It is one of
Highlands County's most
entertaining spectacles, to
be sure.
All shows begin at 6 p.m.
on Thursday, with the sole
exception of the Adult
Finale (Saturday, Nov. 14,
at 7 p.m.). For the finale,
additional events (car
cruise-in, food-eating com-
petitions, trivia contests,
etc.).will begin hours before
the main event, starting at 4
p.m.
Entry fee for singers is
just $10 and you can re-
enter for $5.
Volunteers are needed.
Contact Walker at 386-4417

Dr. Rajeswari Sonni (far right) presents a check to Lake Country Elementary School
Principal Majel Bowerman Wednesday afternoon at the Heartland Pediatrics office in Lake
Placid with her staff (not pictured: David Kleck PA-C). The money is for needy children to
be able to purchase clothing that meets the new LCES dress code policy.

Standardized dress code

appearing at more county

elementary schools

LAKE PLACID - Lake
Country and Sun 'N Lake
.elementary schools are the
latest in the district to adopt a
,standardized dress code.
More and more elementary
schools in Highlands County
.are making the move to this
type of flexible dress code
-that allows different solid-
,color shirts (but no designs),
a choice of shorts, skirts or
pants that are also a solid
[color or jeans.
LCES Principal Majel
i3owerman said she did her
,research before adopting the
,new policy.
"I called and talked to
principals about what worked
.and what didn't," she said.
,"It's very strict and very
structured."
This doesn't mean students


will be stuck wearing solid
colors if they don't want to,
though.
"We also have tons and
tons of school spirit shirts,"
she .said.
Those are on sale at the
school, but Bowerman real-
izes not all her students can
afford clothing.
"Some parents just don't
have anything," she said.
"Some of our children can't
afford school clothes, peri-
od."
That's why LCES has part-
nered with Dr. Rajeswari
Sonni of Heartland Pediatrics
to help provide clothing for
some of the neediest children
at the school.
Sonni said as a pediatrician
she sees children come into
her practice whose parents
have lost their jobs and are

There also. were references
to Mathes at wwwlegacy.com,
a Web site that serves as a
national archive of obituaries
and personal remembrances.
*."Marcus had 46 pages of
commentaries, including one
from Italy (in English) and
one from Germany I had to
get translated," Sawyer said.
Seeing how many lives her
son had touched helped
Sawyer in her grief. It did her
.good to read what people
remembered about him.
She stumbled on the Web
site home of the National
Run For the Fallen, which is
all about remembering, sat up
and took notice.
In runs taking place all the
over the country, 9,000 vol-
unteers ran more than 30,000
miles, each mile in the name
of someone killed in action.
In the opening event,
relays .of runners took, 10a
weeks to run from Fort Irwin,
Calif. to the Arlington
National Cemetery, planting
American flags every mile,
along with sign cards to keep
people aware of the military
sacrifices occurring every
day in Iraq and Afghanistan


- according to defenselink.
mil, as of Aug. 21, 4,337
service members have been
killed in Iraq, 786, service
members in Afghanistan.
"I thought I can do that,
and I did it," she said, then
shook her head, "I don't
know how. If it hadn't been
for the volunteers and spon-
sors I don't know what I
would have done."
On the spur of the moment,
with only a few weeks to get
organized, she was able to
pull together the first Run
For the Fallen in Highlands
County in August 2008.
Despite her lack of experi-
ence and time, 60 runners
turned out.
This year double that num-
ber strapped on wrist bands,
each of which had the name
of a service man or woman,
some who died fighting,
some still serving overseas.
The number of miles each
participant runs or walks are
added together and forward-
ed to the national Run For the
Fallen organization, which
keeps track overall - both in
terms of total miles and by
the name of the service per-
son being remembered.


struggling.
"They have no money to
buy shoes or uniforms," she
said.
In an effort to reach out
and help those that needed it
the most, she "immediately
... picked up the phone" to
help the school. She present-
ed a check for $1,000 to
Bowerman on Wednesday.
Though the new dress code
is a very visible part of the
new LCES, the school is
using the new structure as
part of their curriculum that
focuses on leadership skills
for young people, incorporat-
ing "The seven habits of
highly effective people" into
-the entire school.
"We are stepping forward
as a school and pursuing a
unique opportunity to do
something special with our
students," Bowerman said in
a letter home to students. "It
is a way of using our talents,
time, and funds in a program
we think will reap great
rewards."

Green Dragons working




hard and ready to roll


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID
Although school has yet to
start, the distant sound of
whistles blowing and coaches
encouraging their players
came billowing from the
football practice field behind
Lake Placid High School.
While most students are
spending their final days of
summer vacation playing in
the lakes or hanging out with
friends, 31 young souls
braved two-a-day practices,
one at 6 a.m and the other at
4 p.m.
Before the two-a-days
started this week, the
Dragons went for a three-day
camp at the Lake Placid
Conference Center to hone in
on their football skills and to
build unity as a team.
"We have a great group of
kids out this year," comment-
ed second-year head coach
Jason Holden. "These guys
are working hard and we are
head and shoulders from
where we were at a year
ago."
The revamped Green
Dragon squad is lead on
offense by junior quarterback
Kirk Veley.
"Kirk has really stepped up
. as a leader of our offense and
is really pushing players to
play at their best," said
Holden.
The Dragons are also rely-
ing on the speed and elusive-
ness of their two tailbacks,
Anthony Gonzalez and Caleb
Jones.
"Both of these guys are

Anthony Gonzalez, #80, brings the ball upfield amid his blockers as the Green Dragons
worked on kickoff returns at Friday's practice, their second of the day during the week long
of two-a-days in getting ready for the 09 season which kicks off against Hardee in Friday's
"Kick-Off Classic."


faster than they were a year
ago," Holden said. "Overall
they understand the game a
lot better."
Making plays up front for
the Dragons on the offensive
line is Anthony Canevari,
Laurent Lollis, Cameron
Quigley, Alex Vega, and Zack
Reynolds - that offensive
front is returning four of the
five starters from a season
ago.
"These guys have been
together on the offensive line
for years and are a close-knit
group," Holden said. "They
are really starting to under-
stand the game and are push-
ing each other everyday at

three teams that
we won't know
anything about
until we trade

practice."
Defensively the Dragons
are led at the middle line-
backer position by senior
Navahri Holden.


"Navahri has really started
to step up his game and has
become the leader on defense
that we need," commented
Holden.
Other players that have
stood out on defense are
Taylor Price at defensive
end, and the corps of defen-
sive backs that include
Stephen Guelff, Nevada
Weaver, Jones, and
Gonzalez.
The Dragons have quite a
bit of change heading into
the season, from the schedul-
ing stand point, as they are in

SEBRING - What they
may have lost in height and
talent, the Sebring volleyball
team of '09 will be making
up for in cohesion and unity -
which is not to say the team
is lacking talent, or height, to
.any degree.
"This senior group I have
this year is so much on the
same page and have the same
dedication," head coach


Venessa Sinness said. "In
years past, .1 may have
thought we'd have a great
team, but things didn't
always mesh. This group is
very close, they put each
other and the team ahead of
themselves 'and that really
brings the team together."
Those four seniors would
be Brittanie Augustine,
Karley Freeland, Abigail
Bone and Jaye Whitehead, all
starters returning from' last
year's district semifinalists.


And perhaps the biggest
returning asset is Augustine,
the on-court hub of the offen-
sive wheel.
"It is such a huge advan-
tage having our setter coming
back," Sinness said. "She's
the quarterback of the team
and she was the starter all last
year."
Add in junior hitter Anna
West and Sebring has essen-
tially five starters coming
back.
"Britt was the setter all last


year, Karley played up front
all the time, Jaye played back
row all the time, Abigail
played front row, right side
all the time," Sinness said.
"Bring in Anna and that's
five players returning, basi-
cally, to the same positions.
Aside -from last year's three
seniors (Hannah Shoop,
Molly Blackman and Ricki
Albritton), we had no return-
ing regular players."
Adding to the surplus of
experience is last year's


Libero, Megan Darr, though
she will be late coming into
the season due to injury, but a
capable replacement has been
found to bridge the gap in
sophomore Bianca Nortelus.
"She is a' fantastic athlete
and she's going to be very,
very good," Sinness said.
"She doesn't have the experi-
ence, but the skill is all there,
so plugging her in, we're not
going to see a big differ-

Sebring volleyball sees huge


advantage in experience
Continued from 1B I'. - --


ence."
Stepping up from junior
varsity to this year's varsity
squad are defensive specialist
Samantha DiGiacomo and
setter-in-training Dino Lower
to go along with some front-
court help in 5-foot-11 Kaley
Walter, Courtney Cleghorn
and Brittany Whittington,
both 5-foot-9.
So, though they lost some
experienced size in the near-
six-footers Shoop and
Blackman, it's not as if the
average of the team height
has shrunk significantly.
"Someone like Kaley,
she's very young, but put her
on the court with these guys
and she plays above and
beyond what you'd expect
from a sophomore," Sinness
said. "And Brittany, the only
reason she didn't make varsi-
ty last year, is because she
didn't make the time in the
mile. But she's worked hard,
made the time this year and
will really be a big help, as
will Courtney."
And though the core of the
upper classmen are coming
back as experienced team-
mates, the majority of the 09
crew will be coming in with
plenty of experience playing
together.
"Nine of the girls played
club together from last spring
through the summer,"
Sinness said. "They played in
seven tournaments and fin-
ished no less than third in any
of them."
Not to mention, they went
out on a high note.
"We won our last tourna-
ment," Abigail Bone said.
"We were outsized by a lot of
the teams, but with our hustle
and teamwork we won it. A
lot of teams have some really
big girls and so maybe at first
they'll underestimate us. But
we work together so well, I
think we'll surprise a lot of
people."
Sinness, by her own
accord, doesn't have a great
track record of making pre-
dictions, and coming into a
season in a new district
makes her even a bit more
tepid in making assertions -
but she knows what she sees
in her team and what they're
capable of, regardless of their
opponents.
"The first year we went to
a new district, my second
year of coaching, I said we
weren't going to win a game
and we won district," she
said. "So maybe I should say

Brittanie Augustine returns as the Lady Streaks setter, a
key advantage, along with the four other returning regulars
from last year's squad.


we're not going to win a
game this year, because I
don't know what we're up
against.
"But there's no reason to
think that we aren't capable
of being a district contender,"
Sinness continued. "We've
played the Haines City club
team who, like us, is basical-
ly the high school team, same
with Osceola, and they
should be the better teams.
So we've seen them and
those will be very good, even
matches."
Which should make for a


good and exciting year of
Sebring volleyball.
The Lady Streaks get their
season underway Tuesday
night as they host the Pre-
Season tournament and face
Lake Placid at 7:30 p.m.
Avon Park starts the tour-
nament out Tuesday with a 6
p.m. matchup with
Okeechobee.
See Wednesday's News-
Sun for.previews of both the
Avon Park and Lake Placid
volleyball teams and Friday's
edition for tournament
results.

realignment by the FHSAA
this past January.
Lake Placid has been
placed in the same district
as Labelle, Clewiston,
Dunbar, Gateway Charter,
and Island Coast.
"It's good and bad to
have a change like this. It's
good because you get a new
taste of different teams but
at the same time we are
adding three-teams that we
know nothing about until
we trade films," commented
Holden.
In addition to the new
district, the Dragons have
added back to the schedule
area rivals Hardee, Sebring
and Avon Park in the first
four weeks of the season.
"We wanted to play some
teams that were big, physi-
cal, and played fast,"
Holden said. "We feel that if
we can play at their level we
will be very competitive in
the district. It is also good
for the kids, school, and
community to reinstate old
rivalries with teams from

This event is open to local businesses that will compete against each other in Olympic-style activities. The chal-
lenges will include traditional events like an egg toss, tug of war, and closest to the pin. Non traditional events
such as the office dash which is a team relay where the participants ride adult sized tricycles down a course and
collect/drop off items and a crazy raft relay are great for all skill levels. The emphasis of the Challenge is on team-
work, teambuilding, wellness in the workplace, and FUN! To encourage participants to adopt a healthy lifestyle,
team members receive a free YMCA membership for a month prior to the event .
'Iams must have a minimum of 15 participants with at least 6 being females. Companies with less than 50 employ-
ees can join together to form a team. Participants must be at least 18 years of age and be a "regular on going
employee" having worked at least 20 hours for one month. Additional points will be given for CEO participation.
Events will run every hour starting with parade of athletes where teams will have a chance to show off their spir-
it with banners and team colors, lunch will be provided to the competing athletes and points will be awarded to
the top 8 finishers. The day will culminate with a tug of war challenge and the presentation of the Corporate Cup
trophy awarded to the overall point winner.
Businesses can sign up at the YMCA in August; the entry fee is $350 per team. Companies can upgrade their entry
to include a sponsorship of a specific event for $500.
For more information companies can contact Gayle Yeager at 414-2563 or email gyeagerhighlandsymncacom.
Proceeds from the corporate cup challenge will benefit youth programs at the Highlands YMCA.

nity.
The program consists of
six tabletop machines that,
'do all the movement for
you. These unique
machines are designed to
isolate and exercise indi-
vidual muscle group areas.
They use a combination of
stretching, isometrics and
resistance to work and tone
the major muscle groups
and "trouble spots" of the -
body. You get 500 to 800
repetitions on four of the
six machines:
The 'program not only
tones and firms, but pro-
motes flexibility, improves
posture and circulation, and
provides the physical and
mental benefits of a regular


exercise program without
the problems and injuries K
associated with highly vig-
orous programs. No pulled
muscles, no stiffness, no
soreness, just a whole new ,
attitude about exercise. In
addition, it does wonders to
relieve the stress of every-
day living.
The recommended use is '
three times a week, but just I
twice per week will give :
you the equivalent of doing 4
two hours per day of calis- ,
thenics without the danger 3
of doing an exercise incor- I
rectly. The .Passjve >
Exercise Program� "will
leave you feeling relaxed
and invigorated without the )
strain, without the pain and:-'
without the hours of strentiu-
ois exercise. , A.'

Coontie may be the most primitive plant on earth


- human beings
existed on the
Earth, coontie
zamiaa pumila)
was growing and
reproducing on
our planet. Called
S the "living fos-
sil," this cycad
News From may well be the
The most primitive
Watershed plant on earth.
Fossils of the
Corine Burgess plant have been
found on every continent and lati-
tude. It was a dominant type of veg-
etation when dinosaurs were roam-
ing the planet. Although many of its
relatives from the cycadophyta divi-
sion have become extinct, coontie is
still around. Throughout history,
coontie has been used by humans
for food and medicinal purposes.
Today it is still a useful, unique and
beautiful plant.
The root of the plant has been
used as a food source for centuries.
The Seminoles named it, and the
term coontiee" actually means
"flour root." The Indians would cut
up pieces of the root and pound
them out into a powder. They vould
then place the powdery substance in
water and let the starch sink to the
bottom. The paste was taken and
fermented and then dried to a pow-
der. They used the starchy substance
to make bread. When the Europeans


came to Florida they also used the
stems and roots for food.
Historically, the root was also
used to absorb poisons from
wounds, but during the Seminole
Wars, coontie was utilized by army
surgeons for a pain and inflamma-
tion reliever. It was also, used for
intestinal and urinary problems and
as a nutrient for infants.
At one time, coontie covered
much of Florida's landscape. But
being a slow-growing plant, it takes
about 30 years to grow a five-pound
tuber. In the 1800s, people began to
process the coontie roots for starch.
Some mills would process as much
as 10-15 tons per day. Between the
starch factories and development in
Florida, the wild coontie plant was
nearly wiped out.
Today, coontie is protected and
collecting it from the wild is illegal.
It is a member of the cycad family
which is a group of seed plants that
produce a large crown of compound
leaves and a fairly thick trunk. They
resemble palms and ferns, but are
not related to either; They grow
very slowly, but once established
they are tough, drought-resistant
and easy to maintain.
Coontie is known for being an
excellent ground cover because it is
an evergreen and it will add color
and background to an area. In addi-
tion, cyanobacteria, also known as
blue-green algae, are found in the
root of the plant. This bacterium

rich green leaves and produces bright red seeds.


obtains its energy through photo-
synthesis and has the ability to fix
nitrogen in aerobic conditions,
thereby aiding the surrounding soil
and enabling nearby plants to
thrive.
Coontie is also a butterfly plant.
It is the larval food for the rare
Florida atala butterfly. In 1965 the
Florida atala butterfly was declared
an endangered species. Many scien-
tists believed the creature to be
extinct, but when landscapers began
planting coontie, the butterflies
made a remarkable comeback. A
colony of atala caterpillars can eat
every leaf of the female coontie.
and, being an obligate organism, it


cannot survive without the plant.
For butterfly gardeners, the coontie
plant is a unique and welcome addi-
tion to other larval host plants.
Coontie is dioecious, having male
and female plants. The male cones
the plant produces are cylindrical
and grow to about 3-6 inches long
and are often clustered. The female
cones are elongate-ovoid and grow
to about 2-6 inches long. Pollination
is usually performed by the belid
weevil. The cones emerge from the
ground in the late winter. Males
produce pollen that fertilizes the
female cones that mature in autumn
when the 1-inch red seeds are
released. Birds and other animals


then transport the seeds, to other
areas.
Coontie does best when planted
in shady gardens. It is a clumping
plant which can grow to heights of
3 feet and spread up to 6 feet. It
makes a good transition plant near
other larger plants. It can handle
full sun, but the leaves won't be as
lush and it will tend to produce
more cones and seeds. Coontie is
also and excellent plant for pots and
indoor d6cor. Keep in mind that
they grow rather slowly, but they
don't require much maintenance.
Propagation from seed is the
common method, however since
coontie'is such a slow grower and
the seeds are poisonous, it may be
best to buy the potted plant from a
local nursery.
Many cycads are dwindling in
numbers and may risk extinction
because of collection from their nat-
ural habitat by poachers. By plant-
ing coontie, the gardener will not'
only be rewarded by the unique
primitive look of the plante, but
know that there is one more cycad
in the world that is protected.
Coontie will be available at the
air potato exchange day on Jan. 9,
2009. Watch for articles on upcom-
ing workshops.

Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative cleaned, stocked and

ready to re-open just in time for annual Caladium Festival


Courtesy photos
Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative members Hilda Whitmire (above) and
George Smith (right) work hard to get the Co-op, 132 E. Interlake Blvd.,
cleaned and restocked to be ready for the grand reopening on Monday, just
in time for the Caladium Festival, which is Aug. 28-30.


White ibis is a common sight in area


Birds And
Other Wild Things
Ruth and Hank Kowalski

Welcome to our roost! Other names for
our subject bird, the white libis
(Eudocimus albus) are: white curlew,
brown curlew, Spanish Ccurlew, Florida
curlew and Chokoloskee chicken. That
last name is interesting as it gives a clue
to the eating habits of some Floridians,
just as the name, "Hoover chicken" is
another name for the gopher tortoise.
SIt is always a fun sighting to see a half
dozen or so of this ibis working their way
across our lawn and neighboring proper-
ties they probe for insects and certain edi-
ble roots. The striking white plumage,
black wingtips (not seen when bird is on
land) large decurved beak, red legs and
bright red flesh parts distinguish adults.
Females are somewhat smaller and have
shorter, less down-curved bills.
Immatures are mostly brown above with
white underparts.
White ibisis nest in large colonies
throughout the state from March through


May. Well-constructed stick nests, usually
hold three or four white or light green
eggs splotched with brown, tan and pur-
ple. Incubation is by both sexes and is 28-
32 days long, The young are tended by


both parents. Unless weather is bad,
young are brooded for first week only, but
for five weeks one parent is always on
guard against bands of non-breeding birds
which destroy eggs and young.
Parents bring and disgorge water over
young on hot days. Young leave the nest
and make short flights at 50-55 days, but
return to the nest for feeding and roosting
until 75 days old. Age at final independ-
ence is not known.
The Archbold-Audubon Lake Placid
Christmas Bird Count's five-year average
sighting of the white ibis stands at 335.
Until next time, we wish you all great
birding and wildlife adventures and
please call and share with us your unusual
bird or wildlife sightings. We can be
reached by phone at 465-6618 and our e-
mail address is
ruthnhankwildbird@htn.net.

Ruth and Hank live in Lake Placid and are
graduates of the Dr Reed Bowman Bird
Study Course given at SFCC. Ruth is the
original editor of the local Audubon Society
newsletter, Sightings and Hank is a past
president.

Yeager named Crafter of the Month


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - The Caladium Arts and
Crafts Cooperative has selected Mike Yeager
as the Crafter of the Month for the month of
September.
Yeager moved to Highlands County from
Manatee County on the Gulf Coast about two
years ago. He discovered the Caladium Co-op
.shortly after arriving and became a member.
Yeager was introduced to wood turning in the
seventh grade and still has the piece he made
way back then. After retiring, he returned to
wood turning as an alternative to fishing..
He doesn't feel his work qualifies as "fine
art" but people find his pieces enjoyable -
both beautiful and functional. As a result, he
is kept busy doing more.
"I enjoy my time at the Co-op because after
42 years in retail, I'm able to meet customers.
who are in the Co-op because they also enjoy
fine arts and crafts," Yeager said.
To see his beautiful wood creations, visit
the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative at
132 E. Interlake Blvd. The Co-op has been
closed for three weeks for restocking and
