expected to draw more than 20,000

LAKE PLACID - This year
marks the 19th annual Caladium
Festival, an event that gives the
small town in southern Highlands
County a shot in the arm during the
slow summer months.
"It's an oppor~ynity to showcase
our beautiful town," said Eileen
May, president of the Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce. "Every year
we expect 20,000 people and we get
it."
The event seems to be recession-
proof, or at least.a draw for the dol-
lar-conscious tourist, as the Friday
and Saturday bus tours of the cala-
dium fields are already sold out and
there is a waiting list for vendors
who want to get a spot along what
will be a very busy Interlake
Boulevard.
"Car show entrants are already
heading towards 100, which is more
than last year," May added. 'It will
be a very positive weekend for us."
Carolyn Phypers, who was instru-
mental in getting the event rolling'
19 years ago, was there bright and
early Thursday, directing where

LAKE PLACID - More than 500
people showed up for Congressman
Tom Rooney's Town Hall meeting
Tuesday night, a number so large that
a number of people were turned
away at the door.
The town hall meetings designed
to discuss health care reform have
made news recently across the coun-
try for their hot-tempered crowds,
and Lake Placid, although more
civil, was no different.
"In Martin County there were peo-

Rooney told the packed hall in Lake
Placid. "I can understand this emo-
tion, it's the American way."
Residents made it clear to Rooney
that they didn't want H.R. 3200 -
titled America's Affordable Health
Choices Act of 2009 - to pass, and
he said he had no intention on voting

We Care Hotline available for students


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - Another school year
begins, and with it the anxiety that
accompanies meeting new people and
mastering new material. It is a high-
stress time for students, especially those
in their teens who are dealing with bod-
ies in flux and the weight of peer pres-
sure. '
For several years now the Children's
Services Council has provided a special
hot line designed expressly for children,
tweens and teens who need a sympathet-
ic ear, sound advice and moral support.


The We Care Hotline (1-800-486-
2358) is still very much alive, staffed by
caring adults and guaranteed to be con-
fidential. The hotline is active all day,
every day. No question is unimportant,
no problem too small.
Young people are encouraged to make
use of the support network. Many prob-
lems become manageable, or disappear
altogether, simply by talking about
them. In other cases, solutions may be
found with the help of an outsider's
point of view.
In the past children have called for a
wide variety of reasons, from the death


Poker tourney to help

Boys & Girls Club


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK - While
supporters of children's
causes say it isn't wise to
gamble on a child's future,
here is an exception.
Saturday night, The
Boy's & Girl's Club of
Highlands County will
present a Texas Hold 'Em
Poker Tournament at Inn
On The Lakes in Sebring.
So grab your sunglasses
and your lucky charm and
have an exciting evening
while contributing to an
excellent cause.
An entry donation of
$100 includes 3,500 chips
and dinner.
First prize is a large flat-
screen television, plus a
championship gold bracelet
that comes with bragging
rights for a year.
Every player reaching
the final table will win a
prize package.
The rules this year allow
one re-buy - at $20 - for
an additional 2,000 units of
chips during the final hour
of play, but the player must
be under 1,500 units for
this option to be available.
Also new this year are


secondary tournaments,
each made up of 10 players
who have "busted out." For
$20 a player, a table of 10
will play for Chicanes gift
certificates of $75 for the
winner and $25 for second
place.
A separate raffle of a 42-
inch flat-screen television
will be held. This raffle,
however, -is designed for
poker players so the win-
ning ticket must be present
to win or a anther ticket
will be drawn.
In other words, anyone
who has entered the raffle
should be sure to leave his
or her ticket with a friend if
they decide to leave early.
But Wally Randall, exec-.
utive director of The Boys
& Girls Club of Highlands
County, is so sure everyone
will have such a good time
that everyone will stay late.
Dinner begins at 5 p.m.
and cards are in the air at 6
p.m. Participants may sign
up to play Saturday night.
There is a qualifying
satellite tournament tonight
for a $10 donation. For
more information call

Agape Food Bank

moving to new home


Special to the News-Sun
LAKELAND - Agape
Food Bank, a program of
Catholic Charities of
Central Florida, is moving
from. their 1,200-square-
foot warehouse facility at
2560 Old Combee Rd: to a
2,100-square-foot facility
at 625 McCue Rd. in
Lakeland. The move will
allow for additional space
for member food providing
agencies and will provide
more comprehensive emer-
gency services to be avail-
able to the public as
Catholic Charities of
Central Florida's Western
Region will relocate their
Lakeland Food Pantry and
Emergency Family
Services to the McCue
location, as well.
.When Agape Food Bank,
which.originally opened its
doors in 1983, moved to its
current location in 2006, it
was able to expand,the'
number of member agen-
cies from 159 to 212. The
Food Bank is a member of
Feeding America Network
(formerly known' as
America's ; Second
Harvest), United Way,
United States Department
of Agriculture and the
Florida Association of Food
Banks.
In 2008 Agape Food
Bank distributed a remark-
able 4.1 million pounds of
food to the hungry in the
tri-county area of Polk,
Highlands and Hardee
Counties with the assis-
tance of 228 member agen-
cies. At this writing, the
number of member associa-
tions has increased to 232
and, according to Agape
Food Bank Director Katrina
Pelham, it is expected to
increase to 275 by the end
of December.
"This move is neces-
sary," explained Captain
Arne Nelson, Catholic
Charities of Central Florida


President and CEO. "We
just ran out of footprint at
our current location at a
time when more member
agencies are seeing greater
need. The new facility will
allow greater food access
and by consolidating the
CCCF Emergency Services
in the same building, we
will be able to provide for
hundreds of people in the
area and do all of this with-
out any disruption in serv-
ice."

through a romantic break-up.
Members of the council hope parents
will be supportive by making sure their
children are aware of the hotline and
encouraging its use. Sometimes young
people are embarrassed about their
questions, or are afraid to speak out.
Opening up to a stranger can be the first
step toward reaching out to family.
Stickers with the hot line phone num-
ber have been placed' on middle and
high'school student planners and hand
cards will be distributed as soon as
school settles into a routine.

CSC puts

focus on

truancy

By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
chriytopher.tuffley@
newssun.com
SEBRING - With the
2009-2010 school year
underway, members of
the Children's Services
Council discussed the
corrosive problem of tru-
ancy, during their regular
meeting Wednesday
morning.
It was not the first time
truancy was on the agen-
da. In fact the council has
been concerned about it
- and bullying - for
some time.
Missing school is con-
sidered corrosive because
it undermines a student's
future, particularly in an
age of high technology
where so many occupa-
tions demand post-high
school education and
training.
Worse, studies have
shown that truants often
end up in jail and high
school dropouts end up on
welfare.
The problem is made
worse in Florida, mem-
bers said, because of cur-
rent laws which make it
almost impossible for
school officials to deal
with it.
For example, by statute
a student may have 15
excused absences and 15
unexcused absences in a
90-day period, which
rolls over, meaning the
student may then miss
more school in the next
90-day period.
School social worker
and council member
Katherine Main spoke of
one child who missed 63
days of school without
the district being able to
intervene.
"It is critical to get the
number of lost days
down," Main said. "After
five days a parent may be
called in, but we are con-
fined by a statute you
have to follow."
In other words, the dis-
trict may do less than the
law calls for, but not
more.
The only way fix to
that, members agreed, is
to approach the state leg-
islature for a change in
the current law.
Rather than simply
demand change, however,
the council has formed a
sub-committee and
charged it with creating
solutions, as well as lob-

Avon Park to hold day

of prayer Sept. 20


Continued from page 1A
News-Sun. "Having the City
endorse it is huge! ... God is
taking over this city!"
"This event is for every-
body. The entire city. We've
been working on this for over
a year, and the goal is to
break down barriers between
denominations, race and cul-
tures. We all worship one
God," Seamans said in a
phone interview on
Wednesday.
"So many want to be
involved, we've had to limit
each one to just two minutes.
I like to call them 'Power
Prayers,'" she said.
"Every prayer topic you
can imagine will be covered,
from thecity and local gov-
ernment to health care work-
ers and those overseas,"
Seamans said. "I want to.
thank all who are participat-
ing and supporting this."
According to Seamans, the
prayer meeting was original-
ly organized by Florida Men
of Integrity (FMI) and the
Transformation Network
Team (TNT).


FMI is a volunteer network
of men throughout Florida
whose purpose is to "provide
support and encouragement
to pastors, men's ministry
leaders, and denominational
leaders in their ministry to
and through men in their
local churches."
TNT is a bible-based
prayer and mission initiative
linking leaders and churches
in social transformation.
The event is to be held on
from 3-5 p.m. on Sunday,
Sept. 20, at Donaldson Park
in downtown Avon Park and
will have music as well as
vocal and silent prayer time.
Participants are encour-
aged by Seamans to bring,
their own chairs and a friend
to the event that will have
several pastors and lay peo-
ple from the City of Charm
on hand to offer up their
prayers.
Seamans can be reached
via e-mail at
kcseams@gmail.com or on
her cell at 563-920-0086.


Triathlon will move to

June for next year


Continued from page 1A
that weekend and we lose a
lot of our All Americans,"
Starr said, talking about a
group of triathletes the event
has tried to attract from
across the state. "We want
the race to grow and bring
high-caliber people here and
we have to pay attention to
the races that are scheduled."
Starr said there were seven
races the weekend before the
Heartland Triathlon this year,
seven during, and another
seven the week after in-the
surrounding area alone.
Places like Tampa, Orlando,
Clermont and Fort Myers
hosted events that deflated
what could have been a big-
ger crowd.
Another reason for the
move to June, she said, was
the heat.
"(That late in July) is just
not a good time," Starr said.
"When we sat down and
looked at the. tri calendar ..
June, we all know it's hot in
Florida, but I think that will
help us out."
Sticking to the summer
months was important, she
said, to attract visitors to the
county during the slow part
of the season. The impact on
road closures at that time is
also minimal.
"It has to work with the
county. The summer is a lot
slower, and the tri does slow
down stuff for a lot of peo-
ple,".she said. "So we try to
make it convenient for the
county as well."
Moving the event away
from the Lake Placid
Ironman was another way to
attract high-profile guest
speakers who, unlike Mark


Allen and Dave Scott, are
currently competing in the
sport.
"Every time we ask for a
guest speaker they are at that
Ironman," Starr said. "Doing
a race is part of their con-
tract."
Starr threw out two high-
profile names, one male and
one female, that any triath-
lete would recognize - but
she didn't want to release
those names until she had one
of them secured, which
should be in the coming
weeks.
"They are the young triath-
letes today," she said. "They
will be the Mark Aliens and
Dave Scotts when they get
older."
The other change to race
weekend was to move the
children's race to 7:30 a.m.
from the afternoon.
"We have all agreed it's
too hot," Starr said.
The reason it was held in
the afternoon before, she
said, was because the area
businesses typically closed
around noon, so the impact
on them was minimal.
"A lot of the kids that do
the race are local and (the
heat) is the main considera-
tion we get from parents,"
Starr said.
The triathlon web site,
www.heartlandtri.org, will be
changed to reflect the new
dates and the 2010 guest
speaker by Sept. 7.
It will include information
on road closures and the bike
and run routes, which will
stay the same for 2010.
"Changes in the past were
due to construction," Starr
said. "Next year we won't
have to worry."

CAPE CANAVERAL -
NASA is now targeting late
Friday night, 11:59 p.m., for
its next attempt to launch
space shuttle Discovery.
It will be the space
agency's third attempt to
send Discovery to the inter-
national space station.
Managers met at noon
Thursday and decided to skip
an early Friday morning
launch attempt. A NASA
spokesman says they wanted


more time to study the fuel
valve problem that cropped
up Tuesday and scuttled\
Wednesday morning's launch
try. Engineers believe the
trouble is related to a sensor.
Thunderstorms ruined the
first launch attempt early
Tuesday morning.
Seven astronauts are
assigned to the 13-day shuttle
flight. They will deliver a
load of space station sup-
plies, including a treadmill
named for TV comedian
Stephen Colbert.

rear-ended the Volvo, were visibly shaken but did not appear injured.



Rooney tells Lake Placid crowd he

will vote against health care reform

Part of moving the num-
ber of uninsured people to
the ranks of the insured
would be to create jobs,
something Rooney criti-
cized the stimulus for not
helping.
"Shovel-ready jobs,
that's what the stimulus was
supposed to help with," he
said. "But only 1 percent of
the money that has been
spent at this point has been
towards those projects."
Instead, the majority of
the money that has already
been spent, about 10 per-
cent according to Rooney,
has been spent on Medicaid,
a program he said is laced
with fraud and corruption.
"These programs might

they must be fixed," he
said.
Rooney warned of the
costs associated with pass-
ing the health care reform
bill. -
"This stuff isn't free. You
have to ask yourself how
are we going to pay for
this," he said. "As a father
of three I can tell you 'no' is
sometimes the right
answer."
Rooney said every time
he votes, it is with his chil-


dren in mind. He doesn't
want to pass on any cost
burden to them.
Instead of governmefit-
run health care, the cost of
health care should be
Addressed, he argued.
"What can we do to make
health care more afford-
able?" he said. "That's what
we need to answer, not
this."
Though none of the
specifics of the bill were
discussed by either those in
attendance or Rooney him-
self, Rooney said that he
feared that within five years
there would be nothing but
government-run health care
if 'the legislation was
passed.
"They talk about a public
option, that's not the goal,"
he said. "The goal is uni-
versal health care. Make no
mistake, that's what the
goal is."

'Robocalls'

will be

illegal

Sept. 1
By DEBORAH YAO
AP Business Writer
Many of those annoy-
ing prerecorded telemar-
keting calls will be histo-
ry starting Sept. 1.
The Federal Trade
Commission said
Thursday that it is ban-
ning these "robocalls" to
consumers, unless the
telemarketer has written
permission from a cus-
tomer that he or she wants
to receive these calls.
FTC Chairman Jon
Leibowitz said American
consumers have made it
"crystal clear that few
things annoy them more
than the billions of com-
mercial ' telemarketing
robocalls they receive
every year."
Violaters will face
penalties of up to $16,000
per call.
The ban is part of the
amendments to the FTC's
Telemarketing Sales Rule
unveiled a year ago.
But there are excep-
tions. Calls that are not
trying to sell goods and
services to consumers
will be exempt, such as
those that provide infor-
mation like flight cancel-
lations and delivery
notices and those from
debt collectors.
Other calls not covered'
by the Telemarketing
Sales Rule include those
from politicians, charities
that contact consumers
directly, banks, insurers,
phone companies, survey
calls and certain health
care messages such as
prescription notifications.
These don't fall under the
jurisdiction of the FTC, a
commission spokesman
said.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL .

Raising rates something that just 8

had to be done in Avon Park NEWS-SUN


I hil t goo i'utal


here is no
doubt about
it, Avon Park
had to do it.
They had to raise their'
water and sewer rates and
their fire assessment to offset
their losses.
We here at the News-Sun
know that, due to the current
economy, the timing was hor-
rible, but it had to be done.
Unemployment in
Highlands has now topped 11
percent, and despite the
national announcements,
inflation is hitting folks hard
locally.
But city revenues from
sales taxes were also down
considerably last year, leav-
ing no room to cover the
expenses of proving water
and other services.
A loss of property taxes,
caused by Amendment 1,
coupled with dropping prop-
erty values hampered the
city's ability to cover its
basic costs when you consid-
er bond payments, payroll,
and general everyday expens-
es. And that's not even talk-
ing about the need to cover


the losses because of under-
charging for services.
Unfortunately, the budget
process in Avon Park is a
mess, and there is still the
threat of layoffs come
January.
The waste of money in
contractual agreements went
unchecked when everyone
was experiencing the good
years of high property values
and unchecked consumer
spending, and there is still a
nagging communications
problem between the leader-
ship and the public.
It is clear that Avon Park
made .some mistakes and the
taxpayer has suffered from
those, to be sure, but the city
council had to make a deci-
sion, and they finally did
after putting it off for years.
Enterprise services (those
that collect revenue for pro-
viding services) must be self
supporting, especially in hard
economic times.
The move to increase the
fire assessment could not
have come at a worse time
either, but with decreasing
property taxes, the burden for
that must be equally shared
by all who benefit from the


service.
The hardest part of the
decision should have been
how much to raise the rates to
at least cover the expenses,
not if to raise the rates at all.
No doubt about it, there are
still some serious financial
issues to address in Avon
Park, but bringing the rev-
enue generated from provid-
ing water and sewer and fire
protection to the citizens in,
line with the costs is a step in
the right direction.
Now the city needs to take
the next step and bring other
expenses under control.
Losses at the Executive
Airport, the burden of unnec-
essary contractual agree-.
ments, management salaries
and unneeded spending
throughout the year have to
come into line with conserva-
tive revenue estimates before
Avon Park can be declared a
self-supporting success.
That has to be done before
the city can meet its other
obligations and begin saving
for the next rainy day econo-
my.
Here's to hoping that those
in charge succeed.

TODAY'S LETTERS


Importance of English
Editor:
Through a new study, it is estimated
the loss of English cost the U.S. $65
million a year due to immigrants' lack
of English fluency. This speaks to the
importance of English to our economy.
One way to make this a national priori-
ty would be to expand English as a sec-
ond language for adults and scrap the
failed bilingual education in our public
schools.
The Obama administration should
stop removing incentives for immi-
grants to learn English by mandating
mtulti-lingual government services like
Executive Order 13166 issued by
-President Clinton in 2000, which says
government agencies and all other
recipients of federal funds must provide
an interpreter to translate services for
those who don't speak English.
Those who speak English will earn
67 percent more than those who speak
English poorly. Oklahoma has voted to
put an amendment on the 2010 ballot
making Eiglish the official language.
This should be an incentivefor
Congress to make English our official
language at the federal level. Let us do
all we can to promote this legislation.
It is difficult to be one people with,
many languages. Forty-three percent of
our population speak a language other
than English. All these things add to
government waste and our deficit. In
previous years our doctors have com-
municated with their patients through
family 'members or friends. This would
certainly lift a financial burden. If these
people know they have to furnish their
own interpreter, they will come pre-
pared to strive to learn our language.
Without the requirement, the head of
the Kentucky state police had given
drivers license test multi-linguallty.
When he decided to discontinue,
because of ethnic special interest lob-
bies, he was forced to reinstate the
practice despite the fact that the state


had a billion dollar deficit.
Lack of ability to read road signs
have contributed overwhelmingly to
accidents, but the state's departments
are being prepared to keep the status
quo. I pray we never cease to be of the
people, for the people, by the people. It
is imperative that we make our voice
heard, attend the town hall meetings
and whatever we can do to maintain
our way of life. When that is gone,
there is nowhere to go.
May God guide each of us, remem-
ber to ask God to always bless us to be
under His rule and to protect our
troops. May He go with each of-us as
we, seek His blessed will.
Willie Clyde (Toole) Cloud

Training Center should
cause concern
Editor:
There are reasons for all residents of
Highlands County to be concerned
about the Eagle National Security
Training Center. The project will
include three- and five-story buildings,
250-foot high training towers and a
tower for the airstrip. It will be zoned
as an unheard of variation of "agricul-
tural," so the county will collect limit-,
ed taxes from the Center. New roads
may be required and the low taxes from
the Center may not pay for them.
At the Planning and Zoning meeting,
Linda Conrad, the head of the Zoning
Department, said that no letters had
been received from the public. Perhaps
it would help if the address of the
Zoning Department was in the phone
book. The Zoning Department, along
with the Planning Department and the
Development Services Department, can
all be reached at 501 S. Commerce
Ave., Sebring, FL 33870. I had to make
a phone call to find this out.
We are told that about a thousand
men will be training with military
weapons using live fire on any given


day. If one of the trainees receives a
gunshot wound, how far is it to the
nearest hospital that deals with wounds
of this sort?
Would injured trainees be taken to
Florida Hospital in Lake Placid?.
Florida Hospital LP is not a large hos-
pital. Or would they have to be taken to
Highlands Regional? Are our hospitals
ready to handle these injuries?
I noticed in the handout from the
Planning and Zoning Board meeting
that the Engineering Department has
"no comment" on the zoning change.
Apparently the zoning and development
staff asked the opinion of the
Engineering Department but it did not
occur to anyone to ask the opinion of
our local hospitals. What do they think
about having a thousand men training
with live fire on a typical day in our
county?

Thanks, Winn-Dixie
Editor:
Once again, the board, officers and
members of the Caladium Arts & Crafts
Co-operative are indebted to Winn-
Dixie for the loan of many grocery
shopping carts to aid in the annual
redecorating of our showroom.
During the month of August mem-
bers have been hard at work painting,
moving furniture and re-organizing the
showroom. With the assistance from
Winn-Dixie the transition was accom-
plished in a timely manner.
The Caladium Arts & Crafts Co-
operative is eagerly awaiting the
Caladium Arts & Crafts Festival and
extend an invitation to all persons to
visit our large unique showroom of
quality fine arts and crafts.

Bates family knows caladiums


By JOHN BEDELL
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID - If a
sense of humor is a key to
surviving in agriculture,
Bates' Sons and.Daughters
Caladiums in Lake Placid
should be around a long
time. Parents Don and
Dorothy Bates were both
able to give and take a few
gibes with daughters, Terri
Bates Cantwell and Sheri
Bates, as the family sat
around the break room table
on a Friday morning for an
interview.
When Dad discussed the
strengths each one brought
to the operations, the daugh-
ters quipped that they could-
n't remember dad's farming
strengths since he became a
county commissioner for
Highlands County.
The Bates' caladium busi-
ness goes back one genera-
tion past 72-year-old Don,
to his father, Emmett Bates.
Emmett and his parents left
Arcadia in 1921 and came to
Lake Placid.
He returned home from
World War II and worked as
a carpenter. He was looking
for ways to bring in some
extra money. His first effort
was Easter lilies but disease
ended that crop in the coun-
ty. People tried caladiums.
"He got a bushel of cala-
dium bulbs from the Hendry
family. He began attending
ag meetings for veterans. He
learned about fertilizers and
pesticides. He began grow-
ing in the 1940s but he did
not have enough to sell until
1950.
According to Don, one of
the first big customers was a
broker in Orlando. Later on,
Dutch brokers began selling
caladiums along with tulips






-a a


-Cc


and daffodils.
Emmett's business grew
along with his family. Don
was the first born and he
was followed by a sister,
Nan, and a brother, Fred.
Don graduated from Lake
Placid High School in 1954.
He and Dorothy married in
1956.
Soon Don had earned both
a bachelor's and master's
degrees in agricultural eco-
nomics from the University
of Florida. He continued
studies in economics and
statistics at North Carolina
State University and became
a statistician at Research
Triangle Institute in North
Carolina and lived there for
12 years.
Fred served his country in
the Vietnam War and then
came home to work in the
caladium business with
"Poppy" as Emmett was
called. During the 1970s,
they increased the caladium
acreage from 20 acres to 50
acres.
In -the late 1970s, Poppy
was ready to retire and Fred
invited Don to return to the
family business. Don agreed
and brought the family back
to Lake Placid. Sadly, a year
later Fred died in an auto
accident.
Don and Dorothy had four
daughters, and three have
worked in the business.
Heidi, Terri and Sheri have
all been involved. Heidi
Bates recently left the busi-
ness to pursue a career as a
paramedic.
Terri earned a degree in
horticulture - from the
University of Florida and
joined the business 26 years
ago. Sheri earned a degree
in public health but has
turned her attention to the


financial operations of the
business. She has been
working with the caladium
business for 24 years.
The family members com-
bine together to manage the
operation of 110 acres. The
business has 12 full-time
employees and during the
harvest season another 14 or
15 workers are hired.
In Don's view, the busi-
ness. has thrived on the
strengths of each family
member.
"For example, Sheri's
strength is in management
of the money, keeping up
with the bills and running
the warehouse," he said.
"She worked with the'
field crew and told them
'Don't speak English to me.
Speak only Spanish.' So she
is very functional in.
Spanish. Plus she keeps up
with the money ... If you
don't manage that money,
you don't stay in business.
That is what she does for us.
"Terri brings to us the
industry association," Don
adds. "She knows people all
over the state and the south-
east and the country."
Terri .represents the busi-,.
ness at the annual Southeast
Greenhouse Conference in
Greenville, S.C. She also
attends the Ohio Florists
Trade Show Association in
Columbus.
Dorothy is quick to point
out her daughter's skill as a
horticulturist. "She is proba-
bly the leading authority on
growing caladiums," she
said.
"Oh, I wouldn't say that,"
Terri responded quickly.
Don made sure to mention
his wife's contributions as
well.

"Dorothy brings an atten-
tion to detail that I don't
have and most men don't. I
have often said if you look
far enough in any caladium
business, you will find a
strong woman that pays
attention to detail.' If you
don't pay attention to detail,
your business spirals down."
What is dad's strength?
After a little joking, Terri
stressed dad's skills.
"Dad's an excellent medi-
ator and in a family business
you need a mediator," she
said.
Like any family business,
Bates Caladiums has met its
share of challenges. One of
the biggest was the 2004
hurricane season.
"When Charlie and
Jeanne and Francis came in
not only did we get our
'fields flooded on the lake
side....but the other fields
had so much wind damage it
killed the caladiums," Terri
recalled.
According to Cantwell,
the bulbs took time to recov-
er from the. damage.
Naturally the current econo-
my has also posed a chal-
lenge to the caladium indus-
try.
Despite those challenges,
it is a safe bet that this fam-
ily would not want to be
involved in dny other busi-
ness and it would be tough
for them to find co-workers
that they enjoyed more than
each other.
This weekend's Caladium
Festival in Lake Placid is'a
great opportunity to see
first-hand one of the
Florida's most unique and
beautiful crops grown by
local farmers.

Toby the Clown Foundation president Al Pelski and John Shillady work together Tuesday assemble Clown Town for the
Caladium Festival in Lake Placid. Clown

Big crowd expected for "

Caladium Festival this

weekend in Lake Placid

food sales, not commercial
vendors or those from out of
town.
"We have all kinds of food
booths, none (from) outside,
all local organizations,"
Phypers explained. "It's all
local people. This is all to
help the economy of Lake
Placid."
The caladium industry
doesn't benefit much from
the weekend, she said, but is
used as a draw to bring in
tourists, especially during


this slow part of the year.
"That's why it's in the
summer," she said. "It's so
hot, but the caladiums are
the prettiest this time of
year."
Looking out from one side
of the park, which was most-
ly empty with only a few
tents set up, Phypers spread
her arm and pointed to the
other side of the park.
"This will all be complete-
ly filled," she said.
The caladium festival
starts today at 8 a.m. and
runs until Sunday.

CSC wants to help stop truancy


Continued from page 2A
buying fdr revision.
They also agreed that the
only way to break the cycle
of truancy and tardiness is to
begin by getting elementary
students - and their parents
- into the habit of regular
attendance. In order to that,
however, thd current 30
absences allowed, within 90
days has to be reduced and
teeth added to the statute.
In that regard, Wally
Randall, council member as
well as school board member
and director of the Boys &
Girls Club, proposed adapt-
ing child support enforce-
ment forms to create a stipu-
lation agreement. The stan-
dardized document would be
simple with fill-in-the-
blanks, but have the weight
of a court order. If parents
didn't live up to the agree-
ment, they could be brought
into court and face contempt
charges.
It is important to crack
down in elementary school
because by the time children
become teens, Randall said,


'The more kids
you don't have
graduating from
high school, the
more crime, so the
whole community
suffers.'

SUSAN BENTON
Highlands Co. sheriff

some parents no longer have
control. But through fifth
grade; he said, it is the adults
who are responsible for a
child's attendance, and it is'
they who need to face conse-
quences if a child is chroni-
cally late or missing from the
classroom.
Randall said the United
States used to have the
world's highest graduation
rate, but that currently the
nation has slipped to 13th. He
added that most states fore-
cast the need for future
prison beds by looking at
second- and third-grade
attendance statistics.


Sheriff Benton said, "The
more kids you don't have
graduating from high school,
the more crime, so the whole
community suffers."
The council is reaching out
to county agencies, including
the Health Department and
the Heartland .Workforce, as
well as state-level agencies,
like the Sheriff's
Association.
State Senator J. D,
Alexander and state represen-
tative Denise Grimsley have
already met with the-council
to learn more about the issue
and listen to suggestions for
.solutions.
One. of the complicating
factors at the state level is
that larger school districts -
in Florida each county is a
district - are resistant to
changes that would call for
greater involvement or man-
power, issues that are more
costly for them than for the
smaller districts. Local flexi-


ability is
members
lation to
pass into


essential, several
said; for new legis-
be useful, or even
law.

STATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT

The Department of Environmental Protec-
tion gives notice of its intent to issue a permit
to Palmetto Creek Farms,. LLC, James Wood,
P.O. Box 607, Avon Park, Florida 33826 to
construct and operate a 650 gallon per day,
two days per week, septic tank system which
would apply treated wastewater to a drainfield.
The system serves a small slaughterhouse
and will be located at latitude 27�36'16" N,
longitude 81�26'18" W on 630 Palmetto Creek
Road: Avon Park, Florida 33825 in Highlands
County.
The Intent to issue and application file are
available for public inspection during normal
business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Mon-
day through Friday, except legal holidays, at
the Department's South District Office, 2295
Victoria Ave., Suite 364, Ft. Myers, Florida
33901-3881, at phone number (239)332-
6975.
The Department will issue the permit with
the attached conditions unless a timely peti-
tion for an administrative hearing is filed un-
der sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Stat-
utes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice.
The procedures for petitioning for a hearing
are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the Department's proposed per-
mitting decision may petition for an adminis-
trative proceeding (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The pe-
tition must contain the information set forth
below and must be filed (received by the
Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, ,Florida
32399-3000.
Under Rule.62-110.106(4), Florida Admin-
istrative Code, a person may request an exten-
sion of the time for filing a petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing. The request must be filed
(received by the Clerk) in the Office of General
.Counsel before the end of the time period for
filing a petition for an administrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons other that
those entitled to written notice under Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed
within fourteen days of publication of the no-
tice or within fourteen days of receipt of the
written notice, whichever occurs first. Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also al-
lows that any person who has asked the De-
partment for notice of agency action may file a
petition within fourteen days of receipt of such
notice, regardless bf the date of publication. -
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the peti-
tion to the applicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The failure of any
person to file a petition or request for an ex-
tension of time within fourteen days of receipt
of notice shall constitute a waiver of that per-
son's right to request an administrative deter-
mination (hearing) under sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent
intervention (in a proceeding initiated by an-
other party) will be.only at the discretion of
the presiding officer upon the filing of a mo-
tion, in compliance with Rule 28-106.205,
Florida Administrative Code. '
A petition that disputes the material facts
on which the Department's action is based
must contain the following information, as in-
dicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Adminis-
trative Code:
(a) The name add address of each agency
affected and each agency's file or identifica-
tion number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone num-
ber of the petitioner; the name, address, and
telephone number of the petitioner's represen-
tative, if any, which shall be the address for
service purposes during the course of the pro-
ceeding; and an explanation of how the peti-
tioner's substantial interests will be affected
by the determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the peti-
tioner received notice of the Department's de-
cision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of ma-
terial fact. If there are none, the petition must
so Indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts
alleged, including the specific facts the peti-
tioner contends warrant reversal or modifica-
tion of the Department's proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or stat-
utes the petitioner contends require reversal
or modification of the Department's proposed
action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the
petitioner, stating precisely the action petition-
er wishes the Department to take with respect
to the Department's proposed action.
Because the administrative hearing proc-
ess is designed to formulate final agency ac-
tion, the filing of a petition means that the De-
partment's final action may be different from
the position taken by it in this notice. Persons
whose substantial interests will be affected by
any such final decision of the Department
have the right to petition to become a party to
the proceeding, in accordance with the re-
quirements set forth above.
Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida
Statutes, Is not available for this proceeding.

Avon Park

VS.

North Port
Records
Avon Park 0-0; North Port 0-0
Game Notes
m Avon Park dropped down to Class
2B, though North Port is in Class 5A.
* The Red Devils come in with a
dean bill of health.
Coach Speak
Avon Park's Andy Bonjokian: "They
are a 5A school, and I have talked to
their coach, and both teams are in the
process of rebuilding and trying to
bring their program up to speed.They
have quite a few more players out for
this season than we do, and they are
going to be physical, but so are we. If
you look at their records, it definitely
shows us some favor, but then you
have to look at who they played, and
they have had some tough seasons
against tough teams.They seem to be
disciplined, and we will have to
execute our assignments in order to
keep pace."


Lake Placid

VS.

Hardee
Records
Lake Placid 0-0; Hardee 0-0
Game Notes
* Tonight's game will kick off at 7
p.m. at Roger Scarborough Memorial
Stadium.
* Lake Placid is at full strength with
no injuries to report.
Coach Speak
Lake Pladd's Jason Holden:"They
(Hardee) run the option a lot.Their
quarterback has a great presence and
a lot of speed. Defensively they'll blitz
a lot and bring people from all over.
We're really looking to see how our
offensive line gels.We are running a
lot of different blocking schemes and'
want to make sure they're confident
with themselves and are where they
need to be. We're excited to play, just
like I'm sure everyone else is. It's been
a long three weeks of practice and the
guys are ready to go."


Sebring

VS.

Gateway Charter
Records
Sebring 0-0; Gateway 0-0
Game Notes
* Gateway Charter begins just its
second varsity season.
* The Blue Streaks report no
significant injuries.
Coach Speak
Sebring's Jared Hamlin: "They
didn't play a spring game, so we have
no film on them so we traded
information over the phone.They run a
sort of Wing-T, but out of a shotgun,
so they'll try to confuse you. On
defense, they will change things up,
but it doesn't change what we want to
do. If they have too many guys in the
box, we'll throw it, if they don't have
enough, we'll run it.This game is
really a good measuring stick to see
where we're at. I want to throw the
ball, so I just hope it doesn't rain."


All games have 7:30 p.m. kickoffs unless otherwise noted

Lady Panthers getting feet wet


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK - At this
stage of the season, it is more
about wending than winning,
more about seeing what. you
have than scoring more points.
Though taking two of five
in a scrimmage with Warner
University Tuesday night was-
n't a bad thing either, as Kim
Crawford continued to tinker
with her rotations.
"I'm still moving players
around to different positions,"
she said. "I'm getting closer to
the starting six, so it was real-
ly good to get different people
in."
Even with the mixing and
matching, SFCC came right
out of the blocks to win the
first game 25-22 with Jessica
Singewald scoring back-to-
back points on a kill and
block, Casey Driscoll record-
ing one of each as well, Kayla
Bailey adding two aces and a
kill and Kalee Schlabach con-
tributing a kill as well.
The wheels kind of fell off
in the' second game of the
match with Warner running
out to a 25-10 win.
"They're a four-year
school," Crawford said. "So


'I'm not sure if

they knew they

were allowed to
cheer.'

KIM CRAWFORD
Lady Panther head coach

they're used to a quicker pace
than we'll see at the junior
college level, quicker than
what we saw this weekend (at
the State College of Florida
tri-scrimmage)."
The Panthers proved up to
the challenge, battling back-
and-forth' in the third game.
A Singewald kill evened
things up at 9-9 and another
put SFCC up 13-12 a few min-
utes later.
But with a 14-12 lead, the
Lady Royals went on an 11-4
run to go up 23-18, despite
two Sydney Klemp kills, and
soon went on to a 25-21 win.
SGame four again saw the
potency of the Warner squad
as they jumped out to leads of
6-0, 14-6 and 21-12 before.
finishing it off at 25-15.
South Florida, however, got
in the last lick, clawing


through another back-and-
forth affair to come back from
a 14-13 deficit to score the
final three points for a 16-14
win.
Singewald lead the offense
with 10 kills, followed by
Bailey's seven.
'Alisha Hoffman had 21
assists for the Panthers and
Desiree Leedy came up with
16 digs.
"It was great and I saw a lot
of good things," Crawford
said. "I'd like to see us block a
little better though. I'd like to
see more aggressive behavior
at the net. And we had some
girls not in that were learning
to keep stats and I'm not sure.
if they knew they were
allowed to cheer, ,but that'll
come."
And if a little more activity
on the front line and more
cheering from the bench are the
main concerns, then the Lady
Panthers would seem to be in a
pretty good place.
The season schedule gets
underway Friday night when
they travel to Temple Terrace
to take on Florida College
before heading to Fort Pierce
Tuesday to face Indian River
State College.

Lady Streaks go distance


to defeat Lake Placid


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - The Lady
Streaks went the distance to
defeat Lake Placid 27-25.,
21-25, 25-20, 23-24, 15-12
on Tuesday Night during
their Pre-Season Classic.
All five sets were closely
,contested :throughout, with
the winners of each game
taking the lead only after the
other team had made a mis-
take - the mark of both early
season jitters as well as the
killer instinct of strong
teams to capitalize on an
opponents' error.


'L.P. always

plays tough.'


VENESSA SINNESS
Sebring head coach

"We need to work on our
communication a bit out
there, but Lake Placid is
always tough to beat," said
Sebring head coach Venessa
Sinness after the cross-coun-
ty match-up.
"Our service will get bet-
ter, but it just takes time. LP


always plays tough,"
Sinness said. "We struggled
with our communication
some and we have not
seemed to gel yet as a team,
but overall I am happy with
our progress." ,
"Britt (Augustine) had
some great sets," Sinness
commented.
Augustine led the tea in
assists with 17, and was tied
with Karley Freeland with
11 kills.

net, the Lake Placid Lady

Avon Park drops first


one to Okeechobee


.By EDIBALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - The Avon
Park Lady Devils volley-
ball team dropped their
first match of the year 25-
11, 25-7, 25-12 to
Okeechobee during the
Pre-Season Classic in
Sebring Tuesday night.
"We had our hands on
the ball, and made some
good diving plays, but I
think that nerves got the
girls a bit," head coach
Stephanie Devlin said.
"Once they worked out the
nervousness, they * were
going for the ball."
The, scrappy Lady Devils
were out-gunned, consider-
ing the size of the
Okeechobee players, but
Avon Park seemed to' be
glued to the floor for most of
their play, not using their
quickness to their advantage.
Despite the hesitation,


Devlin felt there were
some good plays made by
her squad.
"There were some good
serves. We have worked-
hard on serves, but there is
still a ways to go," Devlin
said about her young team.
"I told my girls that I was
proud of them, and that the
score did not reflect their
effort. I think we will work
out a lot of our issues in the
pre-season."
"A majority of the girls
have been moved up from
J.V. and are not used to this
level of play yet and
seemed a bit frazzled,"
Devlin said.
Although Avon Park was
slow out of the,gate, when
it came to responses, by the
third game they seemed to
take charge of play.
Jumping out into a lead
early on, the Lady Devils
seemed to be playing their


game for a brief run of five
points before Okeechobee
rallied to defeat the
younger team 25-12.
Devlin felt that the
change in the district line-
up could help her team to
keep pace throughout the
upcoming season.
"We missed a few balls,
but that hesitation should
go away, and the change in
our schedule should allow
us to be competitive as we
move forward," she said.
The team faced Lake
Placid in the consolation
round of the Pre-Season
Classic Thursday night
before they get into regular
season play Tuesday at
7:30 p.m. with a match at
Frostproof.

Sebring, Lady Dragons give

fans their money's worth


Continued from 1B
Dragons may have lost, but
definitely had some stand-out
players.
Sierra Weaver bagged 13
kills and nine aces during the
long match, and libero
Brittany Collison responded
to Sebring's serves with 39
digs.
"Sierra played well and
very aggressive, but our pass-
es were a little disappointing,"
said Lake Placid coach
Marilyn Jones. "It was an
exciting game, and people
certainly got their money's
worth tonight.
"Sebring was ready for us,
and. I told the girls that
Venessa would bring her best
game," Jones added. "Overall,
I was happy with our play, but
we do have to work on the lit-
tle pushes."
Lake Placid faced off with
another cross-codnty, and now
district, rival Avon Park
Thursday night in the consola-
tion ganie of the tournament
while Sebring squared off
with Okeechobee in 'the title
game.

No, but I mean yes


My grandson Paul is getting into the
"terrible twos" where everything is
no. "Paul do you want some ice
cream?" "No!" "Paul, do you want to
go outside?" No is the typical answer
for a child of that age hence the name,
"terrible twos."
Well Jamie, my daughter, has found
a way to make that a positive state-
ment. She has taught him to suffix the
statement, "No," with the statement,
"but I mean yes." It is refreshing to
hear a 2-year-old say, "No, but I mean
yes."
Do we treat God the same way? We
know that He does and wants the best
for us, but often we say "no" when he
prompts us to do something. How
many times have you said "no" when
he stirred your heart to witness to a


friend, or just to
help another per-
son? Or how about
becoming a mis-
sionary? And the
. : classic reply, "I am
too busy to do that
right now." "Maybe
later" is the reply or
Timeless some such delaying
Treasures tactic that allows us
Jim Womble to wait long enough
to forget to do the
deed.
One of the things that separate us
from animals is that we can identify
our faults. Once identified, we can
work to change the shortcoming to a
positive trait.
But where do we start?


We start by changing the attitude.
The attitude is often an automatic
response. Like Paul, or any other 2-
year- old who automatically says no to
any question, we can, like Paul is
learning, add-the suffix to our auto-
matic response when we are stirred.
"No, but I mean Yes" that is to say no
is my natural answer to a divine call-
ing. But I mean yes to you Lord for
you know what is best for me.

Knickerbocker, who normally writes this col-
umn. You may reach Jim Womble at

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 spirit 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 o:war
challenge. and the presentation of the Corporate Cup trophy awarded to
the overall point winner.
