DEP opens

probe of

pipe taken

out for

Parkway

Handling of asbestos
pipe investigated
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@ newssun.comn
SEBRING - The Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection is looking into a
complaint of improper han-
dling of asbestos pipe by the
county during the Sebring
Parkway Construction.
"Our department is gather-
ing information from the proj-
ect site, the landfill and its
personnel. In addition, we are
interviewing witnesses who
participated .in the removal
project including county per-
sonnel," Randal Landers of
the DEP stated in a recent e-
mail.
But Landers also stated that
his department has not deter-
mined if any wrongdoing has
taken place as of date.
According to Landers, the
DEP requires notification if
more than 260 linear feet of
pipe is involved, and a
licensed contractor who han-
dles hazardous materials has
to remove the asbestos under
strict guidelines.
Rick Solis, a 32-year veter-
an of construction work, told
the News-Sun that he recog-
nized concrete asbestos pipe
being dug up, busted up and
hauled off on several occa-
sions while working as a
Survey Technician II for the
county on the Phase II of the
Parkway project.
"They acted recklessly,"
Solis said. "Not everyone is
going to stand for it. Right is
right."
"We are talking thousands
of feet of this pipe. The coun-
ty took out over 1,000 foot of
pipe, and much more was
buried. Thousands of feet.
Anyone working out there
was exposed. Kids playing on
the dirt piles, people walking
their dogs, other county
employees, were all exposed."
Solis also told the News-
Sun that right after he notified

Volunteers get wet



to help clean up

christopher.tufiley@newssun.com
AVON PARK -
Saturday was International
Coastal Cleanup Day,
organized by the non-prof-
it advocacy group the
Ocean Conservancy.
For that reason a team
of 21 volunteers and three
boats turned out at Lake
Tulane to clean up surface
trash, and a crew of five
divers went to Lake
Denton to clean up its bot-
tom.
Philip Elders, the direc-
tor of Lake Denton Camp,
welcomed the divers into
his facility, which they
used as a staging area.
At Denton, Charlotte
Usher, with the Scuba
Tails Dive Club and one
of the organizers of the
day, was fierce in her
praise of divers as stew-
ards of the outdoors. She
pointed to the Professional
Association of Diving
Instructors' Project Aware,
which promotes protecting
the waters.
"Divers are taught to be
aware of their environ-
ment," Usher said. "Take
pictures, divers are told,
leave only bubbles."

10-year-old Sydni Hornick, of Lake Placid, won the
Heartland Idol 2009 Junior Competition Thursday night,
prevailing over a talented group of five young girls.
She sang Taylor Swift's song "Love Story."
Kerry Mullins, the winner of the 2008 Heartland Idol
Competition and the celebrity judge of the evening, told
Sydni, "You blow Taylor Swift out of the water."
Nala Price, 10, of Sebring; Candace Nacino,10, of
Sebring; Larissa Meagher, 9, of Lake Placid; and Bella
Marrero, 5, of Lorida also wowed the crowd, and
impressed the five judges.
Nala was commended for her stage presence. "We're

Adults begin quest for

Heartland Idol title
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - While Thursday night belonged to the
young - being the final night for the Heartland Idol 2009
Competition, Junior Division - 21 grown-ups (and
almost grown-ups) took the stage for the first round in the
adult division.
Each singer had. to sing unaccompanied for a minute
and a half. Song choice was entirely up to the performer,
and the same song could be sung by more that one con-
testant.
Rules stiffen later in the competition, a song may be
sung by only one performer and music choices will have
to be made from particular categories - the better to
challenge the contestants and show their range.
In future weeks, contestants will have to sing a classic
rock number, a show tune, something from a sock hop,
and for the finals, a Jimmy Buffett song.
Judges selected 12 contestants to move on to the sec-

Jobless

rate dips

to 11.4%

Still 3 percent
higher than '08
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Unemploy-
ment rates dropped one-tenth
of 1 percent in August in
Highlands County, but
according to Executive
Director of Heartland
Workforce Innovation Roger
Hood, that may not be a true
picture of the local economy.
The change for Highlands
County was from 11.5 percent
in July to 11.4 percent for
August, which is a jump over
the 8.4 percent last August.
"It seems that the rates
haven't changed much and I
don't know of anyone who is
hiring," Hood said on Friday.
Hood could not credit the
slight -drop to anything in par-
ticular happening in the area,
but thought that seasonal
shifts in agriculture might
have made the difference.
"We have, according to the
state, 42,105 in the labor force
right now, an 37,324 are
employed. The change might
be because of the seasonal
work in agriculture work; it is
that time of the year," Hood'
said.
Statewide, unemployment
also saw a slight dip, sliding
from 11.1 percent in July to
10.9 percent in August.
Neighboring counties, also
dependent on agriculture, also
saw some positive movement.
Hardee County dropped
from 12.9 percent in July to
12.6 percent in August, and
DeSoto County saw two-
tenths improvement from 11.5
percent in July to 11.3 percent
in August.
But Hood doesn't have
much confidence in the trend
continuing.
"We still have a lot of
underemployed out there. And
we have some that are now
dropping off because these
numbers only count those
who are filing. I don't think
this is true indicator of the
troubles people are in; I think
there are a lot more than that,"
Hood said.

High


schools


face new


grading


system

By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com
The State Board of
Education recently approved
enhancements to Florida's
high school grading formula
during a meeting in Miami.
The changes, required by
the passage of Senate Bill
. 1908 during the 2008
Legislative session, split the
focus of the high school
grading formula to now
account for both Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test performance and new
measures such as participa-
tion and performance on
advanced coursework, gradu-
ation rates and the college
and career readiness of stu-
dents.
The reasons given for the
change include rising state
and national expectations,
which led to 54 percent of
graduates attending commu-
nity college requiring reme-
diation in at least one sub-
ject, and the need for align-
ment between high school
and college readiness and
high skill/high wage employ-
ment.
"In addition to providing a
better representation of the
accomplishments of our high
schools, this new grading
formula will help increase
the educational opportunities
.available to students
throughout Florida,"
Education Commissioner Dr.
Eric J. Smith said in a press
release. "The board's
approval of these changes
represents a significant step
forward for our state as we
work to prepare our young
people to compete in today's
highly competitive global
marketplace."
Local high schools have
suffered with their gf,,ades, all
earning a. D, 14s.I ye4r
"Lake Placid and Sebring
both are only D schools
because of a penalty that is
attached to the lowest quar-
tile making improvements,"
said Ruth Heckman, former
.Lake Placid High School
principal and current director
of Secondary Programs for
the local school district.
Without the penalty, the
two high schools would be C
schools. Avon Park High
School would remain a D.
1eckman said the new
plan. retains the penalty and
isp't'likel to help Highlands
County, or even change the
focus of high school educa-
tion.
"I don't see that the new
grading scale is going to be
that beneficial to us," she
said.'"We are still going to
do the best we can to educate
our students and meet their
needs."
The changes, beginning
this school year, limit FCAT
success to only 50 percent of
a hiHlirichool's grade,' with
the remaining 50 percent
based on other factors.

Directory for deaf, hard of


hearing, available again


By CHRISTOPHER
TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING -Mark Keith,
training coordinator at the
Florida School for the Deaf
and the Blind, wants inter-
ested parties to know the
annual directories for the
deaf and hard of hearing
and the blind and visually
impaired are ready. The
resources are free of charge.
"This is the seventh year
we have produced these
directories," Keith said in
an e-mail message. "They
started out initially as about
15 to 20 pages long each,
and have grown into books
of 100 pages and 80 pages.
"The directories are bro-
ken up by sections. For the
hearing impaired directory,


sections include early steps
contacts, school districts,
geographic areas, state-wide
organizations, Web sites,
interpreting services, men-
tal health services, and
books.
"The visually impaired
directory is similar, except
instead of interpreters and
mental health services, that
directory includes sections
on assistive .technology
providers and Braille book
resources."
He added that the directo-
ries are updated and re-edit-
ed every year to remain cur-
rent.
They are assembled by
students at the Florida
School for the Deaf and the
Blind.

LAKE PLACID -
According to early reports
from the Florida Highway
Patrol, a motorcyclist was
killed Saturday at around
8:30 a.m. when he and his
vehicle collided with a
pick-up truck, both south-
bound on U.S. 27. The

intersection with Lake
Henry Drive.
The motorcyclist was
described as having been
trapped under the truck.
Another individual was
reported to have been trans-
ported to hospital.
Details were not avail-

and. where to mail them,"
Keith said.

Terror Trail seeks

'scary individuals'


-By TREY CHRISTY
trey.chrisly@ ' tnew's.s i.co( n
SEBRING - As organiz-
ers put the horrific finishing
touches on the "Terror
Trail," the Holloween-
themed fundraiser for the
Humane Society of
Highlands County, all they
need now are volunteers.
The event, now in its sec-
ond year, takes place from
7:30-10 p.m. each Friday
and Saturday during the
month of October, and
requires more than 30 vol-
unteers each night.
"Even if it's just one night
they volunteer, they don't
have to commit to .every
night, just whatever night
they are available," Humane
Society board member Judy
Spiegel said.
All types of positions are
still available, not just those
whose main focus is scaring
the daylights out of those
souls brave enough to enter.
But for those with scary
on their minds, all they need
to do is show up.
"They will be in costume,
provided by us, so they
don't have to worry about
that," she said. "We- provide
all the costumes and all the
makeup."
More than 15 monster-
type character positions are
still available, but so are
others including makeup
artists, security staff and
parking lot attendants.
"We need four security
people and four car parkers
(each night) and if any-


body's good at makeup,"
she said. "It's tough to put
makeup on 15 people in an
hour, I would love a makeup
person."
Volunteers must be 16
years old, mostly because it
takes a certain degree of
focus.
"They are given a role to
play that they have to main-
tain ... for the three hours,"
she said. "So they can't be
afraid of the woods."
This year the haunted
walk is nearly doubled in
size.
"The event was so popu-
lar last year, we made it big-
ger, better, scarier and took
it to the next level," project
coordinator Jon Spiegel
said.
Organizers have upped
the scariness so much that
they are providing a whole
separate event earlier in the
day for small children. The
Terror Trail has been
declared too intense for
small children.
Instead, they will be
invited to the Pumpkin Path,
a more age appropriate walk
in the woods held from
4:30-6 p.m.
Last year the Humane
Society property off of
Haywood Taylor Boulevard
played host to 400 people a
night, bringing in much
.needed funds for the organi-
zation.
"We are hoping -to do
even more," she said. "My
goal is six (hundred) this
year."

Make housing affordable


Difference between


ignorance, stupidity


S bring Mayor George Hensley
declared in a recent proclamation
that the lack of decent, affordable


housing is unaccepta
We could not agree more.
But his proclamation raises
some questions about what is
affordable, especially in these
economic times, and how we
as a community get that bal-
ance.
Maybe we should consider
raising the income so that we
can afford more, not build
more houses.
The Federal Housing and
Urban Development Agency,
or HUD, defines "affordable"
as housing that costs no more
than 30 percent of a house-
hold's monthly income.
That means rent and utili-
ties in an apartment or the
monthly mortgage payment
and housing expenses for a
homeowner should be less
than 30 percent of a house-
hold's monthly income to be
considered affordable.
According to the U.S.
Census bureau, the median
income for Highlands County
is $34,098. That means the
average cost of rent or mort-
gages plus utilities should be
just over $850 per month.
The median cost of a house
in Sebring was $106,836 in


July, putting the average
mortgage payment around
$890 per month without utili-
ties or insurance.
.Bluntly put, that means that
most in Highlands County can
no longer afford to live here.
'On the flip side, there is
certainly a housing glut, and
Highlands County inventories
are at an all time high.
Market pressures should
dictate that with the amount
of housing available, and with
the appraisals falling, that all
those available houses should
become less expensive, but.
the market has a long way to
go to make those houses
affordable by current income
standards.
That is a no-win situation
for our real estate industry.
But, to meet those stan-
dards declared by Mayor
Hensley, something has to
change,.and it will take a real
community effort.
Each government will have
to get aggressive on what
their goals are in the near
future, especially when it
comes to job creation and
income levels.


We. are currently upside
down in the county as far as a
need for further housing
development, but we are still
searching for ways to increase
the available lots for more
housing.
There is a real paradigm
shift happening statewide
where we are losing popula-
tion, but our county and cities
are still looking for growth
somehow.
Maybe, the time tried and
proved true axiom that indus-
try brings rooftops, and
rooftops bring retail needs to
be adopted.
Jobs that raise the median
income have to be courted,
and light or medium industry
has to be brought into the
county and nurtured with the
goal of raising that medium
income.
The old model of growth
proposed by the county
administration puts too many
of our eggs in just one hous-
ing market basket, and leaves
taxpayers exposed to real
estate trends.
Thoughts about more hous-
ing development without the
industry to supportt them'
should no longer be pushed.
Mayor Hensley was right.
There is a need for afford-
able housing, but instead of
building more houses, maybe

Before we get to the main
topic of today's column, let
ith me point out there is a dif-
ference between stupidity
and ignorance.
I have no idea how to
;TON repair a car that isn't work-
ditor ing. I know how to yell at it,
mn plead with it, and the pay
people who do the repairs.
L; This doesn't make me stu-
pid, but you could safely say
'.com I'm ignorant in this area.
Don is one of the smartest
people I know. However,
when it comes to computers,
.com my intelligent husband is
sometimes at a loss. He can
do e-mail, surf the Web, and
even play games on it (the
last is a rare occurrence,
.corn because my husband isn't
really into computer games).
However, when his com-
puter is not cooperating with
un.com him, he.only knows how to
do one thing: find me. Don
swears that I am genetically
D encoded with a "make com-
2tor puters obey you" gene that
om gets his machine to behave
after it has pretty much stuck
its virtual tongue out at him.
N As I said, Don is smart.
But when it comes to dealing
n.com with computer issues, you
could call him ignorant. You
ate on certainly wouldn't call him
allow to fix your computer, unless
to the you needed him to find me.
ve. Having made this distinc-
tion, I want to go ahead and
discuss something that can't
be dismissed as ignorance.
Something that is nothing
more or less than total, utter
I * stupidity.
Now, the people I want to
discuss are those ACORN
employees that were filmed
by two young people posing
as a prostitute and pimp. The
pair claimed they wanted to
set up an underage prostitu-
tion ring and asked for help
in ducking the law.
To discuss my main point
here, I need to ask you read-
ers to put aside the politics
of the situation for the
Moment. For some of you, I
rs realize that's like askingyou
to quit breathing, but try,
OK? I think if you do you'll
find something that both left
and right can agree on:
These employees did not
have their brains on.
kb Think about it.-You're
working at your job, and this


Laura's
Look
Laura Ware

badly dressed couple walk
into your office. They freely
tell you they're irlvolved in
prostitution and want to set
up a house with underage
girls for their business. What
do you do?
OK, I understand that I
don't know much about the
world of prostitution, but I
can't believe these people
took these kids' word for it.
I mean, OK, there's probably
no equivalent to the Better
Business Bureau to call
("Hello, I'm checking to see
if so-and-so is a pimp in
good standing in the area")
but wouldn't you be a little
leery of someone walking in
and claiming that?
How did these employees
know these guys weren't
undercover cops? And for
crying out loud, does no one
remember "60 Minutes," a
show that was doing
"gotcha" video possibly
before these filmmakers
were born? Weren't they the
tiniest bit suspicious?
One employee caught on
tape has tried to explain her-
self by saying she knew the
pair were fakes and was just
playing along with them.
Again, I wonder what she
was thinking. Did it ever
occur to her that if they
weren't on the level they .had
a reason for their little act?
This isn't ignorance. This
behavior is so stupid you
have to wonder how they
managed to get hired in the
first place. It did manage to
get some of them fired. And
ACORN is now having
image problems because a.
few people did not use their
brains.
Whether you are rooting
for the filmmakers or crying
foul about what they did,
let's all agree that these
filmed employees were stu-
pid. OK? OK.

dent. She can becontacted by

Don't bother the
agriculture center
Editor:
Highlands County commission-
ers: I am a homeowner and attend-
ed the meeting Sept. 3rd. I am
appalled as to the inconsideration
you took on the subject of the
Highlands County horticulturist
agenda.
The Agricultural Center is very
important to those of us who have
lawns, gardens or just plants we
care for ourselves. The Highlands
County residents are mostly from a
different part of the USA and most
need help when moving to this
area.
This is very important to most of
us who live in Highland County.
I understand that you may need
to cut costs, but surly there are
other places you can cut without
disturbing our agricultural depart-
ment. Mrs. Jacobson has had arti-
cle in a newspaper and I for one
have had a tremendous success
with the information she has sup-
plied. I can also say she has helped
the nurseries here too by clueing
them in on some of the native
plants we all can use.
Please, all of you home owners,
help us save our agricultural
department by letting our commis-
sioners know how much our agri-
culture center and Dee Jacobson
and her articles mean to us.

Why a liquor store next
to a school?
Editor:
I am furious as the opening of a
liquor store right next to the Lake
Placid Middle School. Where have


our morals gone to?
Lake Placid is a small knit com-
munity/Bible belt town. Us parents
of elementary- and middle school-
aged children need to ban together
and stop this. If not, what will we
have next to the school, a strip
club? a gun shop? This is wrong,
wrong, wrong.
Shame on the town council of
Lake Placid for allowing this and
shame on (a business) for bringing
liquor next door to the schools.
There is only a chain link fence
that spearates the two. Please par-
ents, let's get together and protect
our children.

Disagreements belong in
the past
Editor:
A recent book by historian
Margaret MacMillan, titled
"Dangerous Games," makes some
interesting points about the use and
misuse of history. Of particular
applicability to the recent flurry of
letters concerning the Civil War
and the seeming contradictions of
"facts' advanced to support various
positions, is what MacMillan
called "unseemly competition for
victim hood." Since this observa-
tion seemed "dead on" as an analy-
sis of what was at the root of our
competitive monologues as to the
causality of our Civil War. I read
on, Ms. MacMillan seemed to have
her eye on the target.
One of the most telling points
made in the book is the selectivity,
or "cherry picking" of facts by his-
torians, in order to buttress their
position and ignore or downgrade
information that tends to demon-
strate a contrary reality. Viewed


TODAY'S LETTERS
through this lens, our recent coni-
tretemps as to the political causali-
ty of the war (to which I con-
tributed) might be viewed in a
more rational and less emotionally
charged fashion, to lead to an
understanding of all points of view,
if not a reconciliation of the issues.
While we may never reach a per-
fect agreement on thos6 issues, it
may be enough to agree that those
disagreements belong in the past
and not serve as provocations to
divide neighbors into competing
and contentious camps - so many
years after the fact. In truth, we are
all Americans who share so much
of an agreed history and philoso-
phy that to continue squabbling
over long dead questions serves no
good purpose.

What is the intent ?
Editor:
From 1988 to 1991 Barak
Obama attended Harvard Law
School. graduating magna cum '
laude and was president of the
Harvard Law Review. Taught con-
stitutional law at the University of
Chicago Law School from 1993.
His most traditional course was in
the due process and equal protec-
tion areas of constitutional law. His
voting rights class traced the evo-
lution of election law. from the dis-
enfranchisement of blacks to con-
temporary debates over districting
and campaign finance.
California Proposition 187 (also
known as the Save Our State initia-
tive) was a 1994 ballot initiative
designed to prohibit illegal immi-
grants from using social services.
healthcare, and public education in
the state of California. This initia-
tive initially was passed by the vot-


ers, but was later ruled unconstitu-
tional. It was not found unconstitu-
tional in the sense that the provi-
sions themselves were contrary to
federal law; it was found unen-
forceable since it entered an area
of federal authority: immigration.
Under the supremacy clause of
the United States Constitution, the
States are not free to legislate in
areas controlled by federal law.
Even if 100 percent of a state's
voters vote for a law, it is unen-
"forceable if the law is pre-empted
by the federal government.
So with that, Prop. 187 was
overturned and thus rescinded by
the Federal Courts of California,
and the U.S. Supreme.Court upheld
the federal courts.by not hearing
the case. With this being done, it
made it the law of the land.
Federal laws requires hospitals
to treat anyone who enters an
emergency room regardless of abil-
ity to pay have created an unfund-
ed mandate for states and localities
to fund health care for non-U.S.
citizens and illegal aliens. Yet at
the same time, lack of enforcement
of federal laws against illegal
immigration has led to millions of
illegal aliens into the United
States, and state and local taxpay-
ers (you and me) are being forced
to foot the bill. Although immigra-
tion law enforcement is a federal
responsibility, most hospitals
receive little or no reimbursement
for the care to immigrants that the
federal government mandates that
they provide.
So with President Obama's
knowledge and experience with
constitutional law and federal
immigration law why would
President Obama say, "This health-
care is not going to be available to
illegal aliens?"


Let me go a step further, the
donkeys and the elephants in
Congress and the Senate also know
that any amendments written that
excludes any illegal aliens and
non-U.S. citizens from either this
healthcare bill or any other pro-
posed federal healthcare bill would
be found unconstitutional by the
U.S. Supreme Court.
Proverbs 15:33 says, "The fear
of the Lord is the beginning of wis-
dom; and before honor is humili-
ty."
These men and women that we
have voted into office in their arro-
gance have abandoned both their

Bouquet

honor and their fear of God in vio-
lating this oath to us - to "We the
people."

Work is progressing on the community being built at Lake June West in Lake Placid.

Construction continues at

Lake June West community


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - Chapman's
Construction Company has completed the
second floor deck and walls on the first 10-
unit building at Lake June West, according
to company President Mike Chapman.
The roof trusses, roof deck, and all inte-
rior framing will be complete by the end of
September.
"The 'roll-up-your-sleeves' approach that
we have taken to market the community has
really paid off. We have seen that thereare
really many buyers who have the available
cash if the price is right," Chapman said.
The community, which is located at 1057
Lake June Road, will feature Key West
architecture with clapboard siding and a
quaint metal roof. Upon completion, the
community will include 49 townhomes,
offering two floor plans.
"Lake June West offers a terrific opportu-
nity for purchasers to take advantage of the
pre-completion pricing at $259,900 for the
Key Largo floor plan and $274,900 for the
Islamorada floor- plan," said Gayle
Chapman, the Broker for Chapman Real
Estate Corporation, which is responsible for
all sales and marketing of the community.
"We are so excited that the first ten unit
building has sold out so quickly. With all


the recent construction activity we already
have many people interested in purchasing
town homes in the second building," she
added.
"We will continue to market the commu-
nity in the Lake Placid and Sebring area but
are seeing many of our buyers coming from
coastal communities such as West Palm
Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Naples, Fort
Myers and Sarasota," Chapman said.
"Denyelle Dibble, of Re/Max Realty Plus
in Sebring, sold a unit to one of her Fort
Myers customers."
"Folks from the coasts love our area
because of all the lakes and the laid back
lifestyle that Lake Placid has -to offer,"
Dibble said.
Highlands Independent Bank is provid-
ing the construction and development
financing for the project.
"We are very excited about this project
and dare eager to provide end load financ-
ing for qualified purchasers. We already
have financing commitments in place for
seven of the purchasers in the first build-
ing," bank President John Shoop said.

ond round, which begins Oct.
22.
Participants who were not
selected this time around
were urged to re-enter the
contest. There are another
four qualifying sessions, hap-
pening every Thursday from
Oct. 1 through Oct. 15.
Contestants on Thursday
night ranged in age from 17-
going-to-be-18-by-the-day-
of-the-finals, to 59 years old;
and the music ranged from
classics, like "Over the
Rainbow" and ."Amazing
Grace" to pop tunes associat-
ed with Whitney Houston,
Celine Dion and Mylie
Cyrus.
The singers selected to
move on are: Ashley Elder of
Avon Park, Tiffany Elliott of
Lake Piid,.Sbaivn Knowles
of Sebritg,. Gary Laird of
Sebring, - Kevin Lorne of
Lake Placid, Shannon
Marrero of Lorida, Vicki
McClain of Sebring. Am\
McCod of Sebring, Amanda
Mercer of Lake Placid, Julie
Temple of Lake Placid,
Mishal Wood of Sebring, and
Tiffany Zarko of Avon Park.
When asked why she
decided to enter the competi-
tion for the first time, Vicki
McClain said, "It's on my
bucket list. I'm probably the
oldest one trying out."
She sang "Good Morning
Child." Judge Jim McCollum
was impressed. "Vicki, that
song wrapped around me like
Grandma's good-night kiss,"
he said.
When Kevin Lorne, who is
a breakfast chef, sang Otis
Redding's "Sitting on the
Dock of the Bay," judge John
Meder said, "If you cook as
well as you sing, I'll be down

for breakfast."
And Julie Temple, who
decided to enter after her
daughter pointed out she
wasn't getting: any younger,
also impressed Meder. "I was
spellbound," the julge said.
"You.were great."
Shannon Marrero, whose
5-year-old daughter Bella
was a finalist in the junior
division, was selected by the
audience as the People's
Choice. She sang George and
Ira Gershwin's song,
"Summertime," from
"Porgy and Bess".
Another family took part
in the competition. Both of
junior finalist Larissa
Meagher's parents sang in
the first adult round.
Amanda Mercer advanced
to the second round singing
"My Redeemer Lives." Her
husband, Dewayne Mercer,
had a tough act to follow. He
sang "I Will Rise."

High schools brace

for new grade system


Continued from page 2A
Those factors include the
school's graduation rate;
the performance and partic-
ipation of students in
Advanced Placement,
International Bacc-alaure-
ate, Dual Enrollment,
Advanced International
Certificate of Education,
and industry certification
classes; the post-secondary
readiness of the students as
measured by the SAT, ACT
or College Placement Test;
the high school graduation
rate of at-risk students; and
growth or decline in these
data components from year
to year.
With a much larger num-
ber of factors involved in
coming up with a final
grade, in the future high
school grades won't be
available until the end of


the year instead of being
released with the elemen- I
tary and middle school
grades.
Heckman disagreed with
Smith when he said the new
grades are a significant step
forward.
The district will continueC
to work on the things ii ,he
new formula like.~t ey
always hae, she si '.
"I think we are alf.eddy
offering quite a few dgal.
enrollment courses and that
seems to be the choice of
most of our students; but
we continue to add AP
classes at our high schools
either way," she said.
"We've always worked
with the graduation rate and
done the best we could to
keep kids in school, and I
think we will continue to
focus on that."

Volunteers clean up lakes


Continued from page 1A
Erin McCarta, who works
with Ford, led the team of
divers at Lake Denton. She
reported the water there was
"really quite clean."
Dick. Reaney, president of
the Highlands County Lake ,
Association also took part in
the operation.
The association, which has,
a board of directors and acts
as the eyes and ears for the
lakes of the area, is open to
anyone with an interest in
protecting the water.
Both Ruggero and Reaney
were acting as cooks, prepar-
ing the food and drink for'
the volunteers. While the
cooks volunteered their
effort and time, the food was
paid for through the tourist
tax.
Keep Highlands County
Beautiful supplied the dump-


sters and equipment needed
to move the heaviest objects.
Scuba Central, a business
so new to Highlands County
it doesn't have its signs up
yet at 515 U.S. 27 N, provid-
ed all the tanks, air, and gear
needed.
"We try to do five or six
clean-ups a year," McCarta
said. "We'd like to do more
put have a limited staff and
need volunteers."
Elders, the camp director,
welcomes divers to the
camp. They can make
arrangements to park, and
have access to the lake as
well as rest rooms and a
shower. The fee charged
goes entirely to the camps
scholarship fund, providing
camping experiences to chil-
dren who otherwise wouldn't
have the opportunity.

mation at 453-3627.

AT LAST: A government program that helps you... ADVER


"Could This Be The

Ultimate Tax Shelter?"

(Up to a $1,500.00 TAX CREDIT* makes
this opportunity almost.a 'no-brainer.' Read on:) .
Spencer Whitmire
Chief Energy Saver
DATELINE: Highlands County YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF


Is the government going to "charge" you
$1,500 if you don't replace your old, inefficient,
air conditioner?

Some experts have predicted that the cost of
electricity will skyrocket. And since residential
air conditioning is one of the biggest users of
electricity, thenew Stimulus Package contains
a substantial incentive for upgrading your old
air conditioner to a new high efficiency model.

USE IT OR LOSE IT?

It seems as though you are going to "pay" for a
new, more efficient, air conditioner whether
you get one or not. If you replace your old
system you might be eligible for up to $1,500
in tax benefits. And, if you wait too long, you
may lose the tax credit, and pay a much higher
Ltilily Dill
One inuro thing. Next year (2010) a new law
will nikr. most existing air conditioners
1lir - Iivl.ly obsolete! This is a law banning the
manf.ii lring of air conditioners using the
. f ipi. ilt R-22. When that happens, I predict
l,.11i 1h,: cost of this refrigerant will also
skyrocket, which means your old air
c(:iiii iiir ner could become very expensive to
repair.

* Applhs to central A/C with 16 SEER or higher. Certain restrictions apply,
Consult your tax advisor.


When you add it up, you owe it to yourself to
find out the facts. See how much tax relief you
can get. See how much you can lower your
electric usage. See how worry-free you can be
from breakdowns and repairs.

FREE AND NO-OBLIGATION

Call now and receive a free, no-obligation,
energy survey, installation estimate, and
government tax credit information.

With tax savings, lower electric usage, and
freedom from breakdowns and repairs, it
makes sense to find out the facts and then
judge for yourself.

Rick Solis took this picture of pipe removed during construction of Phase II of the Sebring
Parkway. Testing showed the pipe was 80 percent asbestos, and the DEP is investigating
how the pipe was handled during its disposal.

DEP investigating Parkway pipe


Continued from page 1A
his superiors, troubles with
his job began.
"I had no problems until I
complained and then they
started a cover up. I was pos-
sibly exposed to a hazardous
material, I do not see how
they can defend themselves.
There are no permits, and no
hazmat team. .But after I
reported ,'that' to them, my
work was no longer accept-
able, and I got a notice that
the county no longer needs
my position as of Oct. 1
because of the budget. If there
is a budget problem, why is
another person already hired
for my position? I was told
during the budget talks that I
had no worries because there
was plenty of work for my
position," Solis said.
Solis stated that he reported
this to his superior, Fred
Meyers, 'to County Engineer
Ramone Gavarette, and to
Assistant County Engineer
Elius Nortelus and that his
main concern was that himself
and other Workers were being
exposed to the hazardous
material during the removal,
and that it was not being han-
dled properly.
Solis took pictures and
gathered samples of the pipe
he; was working on and for-
warded that information to an
independent lab in Orlando
for testing.
A lab report, generated by
EMSL Analytical Inc. of
Orlando dated July 27 and
recently given to the News-
Sun by Solis, shows that the
samples of the pipe contained
80 percent chrysotile and cro-
cidolite asbestos.
County Administrator
Michael Wright confirmed
that the pipe was asbestos, but
it was not uncommon to find
that type of pipe in the area.
"It was transit pipe. It is
not uncommon occurrence in
the utility business to have to
remove transit pipe. It was
asbestos, but it was common-
ly used after World War II,
and is not at all like the
asbestos found in a building.
When we came across any
pipe, we would call the
Sebring Water Department
and they would let us know if
it was abandoned, and then
we would remove it and take


it to the landfill. We followed
their policies on pipe aban-
donment," Wright said.
Wright also said that there
was not a lot of pipe involved
in the overall removal.
"I talked to Kyle Green and
was informed that the pipe
was only 30-50 feet long, but
no special precautions were
taken," Wright added.
"It is very brittle pipe, but it
does not create a hazard
unless you create a dust.
Basically, we took it out with
a back hoe, loaded it onto
dump trucks and took it to the,
landfill, but we left most of it
in the ground," Wright added.
Wright also said that Solis
was being released because of
budget concerns, not anything
to do with his complaints.
"You are aware that Mr.
Solis is being released and has
been written up, correct?"
Wright asked during a phone
interview.
Solis' personnel file shows
that he was given a written
warning on July 27 for not
following through on gather-
ing "as-built" data on inlets
and pipe runs, according to
county records.
The official reprimand
from Gavarrete stated that the
written reprimand was for
"poor work and disobedience"
for failing to provide data
ordered by the County
Surveyor and County
Engineer.
Solis appealed the written
warning, and Community
Service Division Director
June Fisher reduced the repri-
mand to a verbal warning stat-
ing that "due to inconsistency
of documents..., this repri-
mand will be considered a
verbal warning" on Aug. 27.
On Sept. 4, Solis received a
layoff notice from Human
Services Director John Minor
due to budget problems, and
that his layoff was approved
by the Highlands County
Board of County
Commissioners and is effec-
tive on Oct. 1. the end of the
,county's fiscal year.
According to Solis, his
replacement has 'already been
hired.
Sebring Public Works
Director Marty Roepstorff
agreed that there is transit
asbestos pipe in the ground,


but that Sebring had replaced
and removed more than 99
percent of the pipe over the
years.
"Asbestos was used in all
the utilities in the '60s and
'70s. In this case, the engineer
of record would have handled
the right permits," Roepstorff
said.
Roepstorff confirmed that
there was easily over a thou-
sand foot in that area, but
could not confirm how much
had been dug up and hauled
off by the county.
"I am not aware of the actu-
al amount of pipe removed,
but that section runs from
Center to Commerce. There is
over 1,000 foot of pipe
involved, but the county han-
dled that. We are just the
banker paying for the renova-
tions," Roepstorff said.
"Our job was to just inform
the county that the proper
grouting was done to the
pipes, and that they needed to
make sure to follow all the
DEP requirements. I feel con-
fident that the county would
do that, but we still told them
to make sure it was right and
to notify the right folks when
it was done," Roepstorff said.
County Road and Bridge
director Kyle Green also stat-
ed that some pipe was
removed and hauled to the
landfill, but that he was not
aware any of the pipe was
asbestos.
According to Green, there
was a large pipe at the landfill
that was being tested, but he
was not sure it came from the
Parkway.
"We are getting a 25- to 30-
foot section of pipe found at
the landfill tested, but I think
that pipe was from some-
where else. All the pipe
around the Parkway was
about 12 inches in diameter.
This pipe is 18 inches I
think," Green said.
Landfill Director Ken
Wheeler confirmed that a 25-
to 30-foot section of pipe was
found. He also did not think it
was asbestos.
"One of our operators
found a large pipe and the
DEP is checking to see if it is
asbestos, and if it is, we will
make sure that it is handled
properly," Wheeler said.

Special to the Neaws-Sun
SEBRING - Alan Jay
Wildstein has named his"
brother, Ari, as general
manager of the Alan Jay
Kia store.
Ari Wildstein grew up in
South Miami and spent
every second he could in -
or on - the water.
He is an avid fisherman
and diver, and loves any-
thing having to do with
boats and the ocean.
Ari Wildstein graduated
from Miami Palmetto High
School in 1996, then
attended the University of
Florida before finishing my
bachelor's in business
administration at Florida
International University in
Miami.
He immediately began
working at - Tropical
Chevrolet and remained
there for years, occupying
various positions ranging
from salesman to business
manager, used car manager,
service writer, sales manag-


He said he began think-


ing about a move to
Sebring in August 2008
while on a family trip with
Alan to North Carolina, and
he jumped at the opportuni-
ty when it became available
this past June.
He is currently in the
process of purchasing a
home in the Country
Club/Golf Hammock area
of Sebring, and is looking
forward to moving his wife
and 18-month-old son here
as soon as possible.
"I am extremely proud of
the role model Alan has
provided for me as well as
the opportunity to follow in
his footsteps regarding the
community services and
organizations he supports.
"Plus I thought Sebring
could use a younger, better-
looking Wildstein these
days.
"I look forward to serv-
ing - and being a friend to -
the Sebring community to
the best of my abilities for
many years to come," he
said.

Devin Clarke breaks out of the pack and heads for the game-clinching touchdown run
in Sebring's 29-21 win at lake Region.


Streaks stay ahead of


rolling Thunder


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
EAGLE LAKE - It might
have seemed like a good
,remedy for the Sebririg foot-
ball team - a winless Lake
Region squad upon which to
take out the frustration of
last week's tough loss to
Hardee
But appearances, such as
won-loss records, can be
deceiving as it took all that
the Blue Streaks had to win
a 29-21 thriller.
"We told the kids all S
week that Lake Region
is a good football
team," head coach d
Jared Hamlin said. Lak,
"Their record might
not show that, but they
play a real tough
schedule. They've got
some good athletes and
they're big. But our kids
just kept to it and at the end,
they found a way to win."
They got off to a good
start, as the defense forced a
three-and-out on the
Thunder's first possession
and took just three plays to
get themselves on the score-
board.
Lake Region got a heavy
dose of Devin Clarke early
and often as quarterback
Matt Grubb connected with
him for 12- and 3-yard


gains.
A Thunder penalty moved
the ball another chunk of
yardage, before Clarke took
a-handoff and scampered in
from 13-yards out for the
opening score.
Lake Region, though,
showed its' offensive power,
unleashing a five-headed
running attack as they rum-
bled down the field on their
next possession.
Between 200-pound full-


bring

e Region
21


back Justin
Reynolds, six-foot-
two running back
Marvin Robinson,
quick little scat-
backs Dante
Lambert and
Andrew Wilkinson
and 6-2 quarter-


back Tavaris Carr, the
Thunder marched down the
field on a seven--play, four-
minute drive that culminat-
ed in a Carr keeper.
The extra point was
missed, however, and
Sebring held a 7-6 lead.
The next few series came
and went with the defenses
holding strong.
But on a Lake Region
punt early, in the second
quarter, the Thunder got
another taste of the light-
ning quick Clarke as he


darted and dashed among
would-be tacklers for a 55-'.
yard score on the return.
Sebring's point after
would also go awry, keeping
it a one-touchdown - and
extra point - margin at 13-6.
That would come into
play, as Lake Region
mounted one more drive
before the half.
Carr would do most of the
damage himself, running for
two big gains, aided by a
Blue Streak facemask
penalty, before Wilkinson
broke through from the one,
and then converted a two
point extra point to give the
Thunder a 14-13 lead at
,halftime.
Both defenses really dug
in to get the second half
going, with neither team
able to gain much ground.
But late in the third, the
Streaks got rolling again
with running back Daniel
Burnett starting out a drive*
with a five-yard gain.
Grubb connected with
Michael Grimes on a 28-
yarder that got it to the
Thunder 39.
From there, 'Burnett put
his arm to use when on a
pitch for an apparent run
around right end, Burnett

Red Devils take the



clash of Highlands


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com'
AVON PARK - Fans def-
initely got their money's
worth on Friday night at Joe
Franza Stadium as Avon Park
came out on top 31-27 of
good 'ol dog fight against
Lake Placid.
"It was definitely a good
game," commented Lake
Placid Head Coach Jason
Holden. "We talked all week
how it would be a close game
and could come down to an
extra-point or two. I can't
remember ever losing a game
and feeling this proud. We
played to our
Avon Park ,,est."
31 On the
other side of
Lake Placid the fight,
Avon park
21 Head Coach
S A n d y
Bonjokian
agreed with Holden's senti-
ments.,
"Hats off to Lake Placid.
They matched us run for run.
It shows how far everyone
has come since the beginning
of the season," he said. "All
these kids fought hard all the
way through. We just hap-
pened to get the breaks
tonight for a change."
Looking at the stats, it
appears that the breaks went
both ways for most of the
night.
With just 11 seconds
expired on the clock, Avon
Park's Tekovian Miller
coughed up the opening
kick-off after returning it

almost 47 yards on a huge hit
from a Green Dragon, and
Stephen Guelff scooped and
returned it for a touchdown.
Avon Park paid it back
with 11:35 on the clock when
Miller broke the first down of
the first series for a 65-yard
scrarhble and a touchdown.
Both teams missed, the
point after, and the score
after 15 seconds of play time


was 6-6.
Lake Placid pounded out
the next series that ended on
a 30-yard pass from quarter-
back Kirk Veley to Guelff,
and the Dragons successfully
picked up two after the point
when Tony Gonzalez rolled
in from the two.
Not to be outdone, Red

SEBRING - Things
weren't looking too good
early on, as Sebring was
serving as far too nice a host
to , district foe Osceola
Thursday night.
After all, through hesitant
steps, miscommunication and
errant shots, the Blue Streaks
had allowed the Lady
Kowgirls to build a 12-4 lead
in the opening game.
"I told the girls this was
going to be a fast-paced game
and I hoped they would come
out fired up," head coach
Venessa Sinness said. "But
we just came out flat."
But the turnaround came
soon enough, as the Lady
Streaks battled back to win
that game, as well as the next
two for the three-game


sweep.
"The defense really picked
it up," Sinness said. "Kaley
(Walter) and Anna (West) did
a real good job at the net, and
our back defense played real-
ly well when shots did get
by."
And with the defense set-
tling in, the offense was
given the opportunity to start
clicking as that 12-4 deficit
was gradually cut into.
West had a block and kill
to help shave it to 14-8, and
consecutive service aces
from Brit Augustin brought it
to 16-14.
Abigail Bone then swatted
down a score and tipped one
cross-court past the Osceola
defense to give Sebring its'
first lead at 20-19.
The Lady Kowboys would
not regain the lead as a West


kill helped seal .the opener,
25-22.
Osceola would hold a lead
early in the second game, at
3-2, but it was short-lived as
the Streaks struck hard with
kills from Karley Freeland
and Courtney Cleghorn,
along with two West blocks,
to get it to 18-8.
A late run by the visitors
served only to provide the
final margin in the 25-17
Sebring win.
Sebring would have to face
a bit of a deficit, again, early
in the third game.
But, again, the Streaks
surged back with a 16-3 run
to turn the 5-2 hole into an
18-8 lead.
West had a block and ace
to aid the run, along with

Streaks hand Kowgirls first district loss


Continued from 1B
kills from Augustin and
Brittany Whittington.
Osceola scored six in a row
at that point, to cause a bit of
concern, but an Augustin
quick-tip halted the run and
any momentum the Kowgirls
had going for them.
From there, Sebring's 6-2
run finished it off to win
going away, 25-15.
"Tho girls never quit,"
Sinness said. "They got down
that first game and just
fought their way back.
"This team (Osceola) beat
Winter Haven and we didn't"
she continued, a tinge of
angst in her voice. "But
we're getting better, game-
to-game, practice-to-practice,
we're getting better and
that's what matters."
Though not at full strength
Friday night, the Lady
Streaks held serve in sweep-
ing past Avon Park in three
straight in a non-district con-
test.
"Anna (West) was away on
a college visit and so we
moved some people around,"
Sinness said. "But we played
consistently, like we did
Thursday, and that carried
over.
"Avon Park is.real young,

step up."

The Lady Green Dragons
continued their district domi-
nance with a 3-1 match win
over Frostproof Thursday
night, before making a hur-
ried run up to Bartow for a
weekend tournament.
"I played the girls who
would be coming to the tour-
nament in the first game,"
head coach Marilyn Jones
said of Thursday's contest.
"We won that one, and then I
put in the girls who weren't
going to be coming to Bartow
in the second game and we
got off a bit and lost a close
one."
Jones then mixed in some


of the regulars in a third-
game win before installing
the starters for the clinching
victory in game four.
Then it was off to Bartow
for tournament action.
"We just found out a few
days ago," Jones said. "One
of the teams dropped out and
they called us to fill in a spot
at the last minute."
The early returns were
decent enough, with a
Saturday morning two-game
sweep of All Saints and a
three-game loss to a powerful
Okeechobee squad.
"We lost the first one, 25-
21," Jones said. "And we had
about six just horrible serves,


so that's one we definitely
could have had."
Lake Placid then went on
to win the second game by a
25-19 score, forcing a third-
game tie-breaker.
"That third game, we just
didn't have it," Jones said of
the 15-6 loss.
Up next was to be a match
with Victory Christian to,
hopefully, get back on the
winning track.
From there, it will be just a
couple days of rest before
they host Mulberry Tuesday
night in district action.

Sun for a recap of the Lady
Dragons tournament results.

Devils, Dragons go down


to the wire


Continued from 1B
three tackles for a 70-yard
sprint on the very next series,
and Avon Park wap back in
the game but trailing by two
at 14-12.
/ Allen would leave the
game after that run with an
aggravated hamstring, but
would still put 80 yards into
the record book on just.four
carries.
Two minutes into the sec-
ond quarter, Avon Park
defensive back Patrick
Graham picked off Veley at
the Lake Placid 48, giving
the Big Red Offense the
chance to grind It to fourth
and goal before Miller easily
walked in for another six.
The Red Devil two-point
conversion came up short,
however, leaving the score at
18-14 Avon Park.
Lake Placid's workhorse,
Caleb Jones, marched back
down the field in the next
series, picking up almost
eight yards- a carry before
treating the Devil d-backs to
a 37-yard sprint through the
park for the score.
As the game ground down
to the half, both teams left
the field at 21-18 Lake Placid
after the. Guelff point after.
Showing they still had
fight in them after the loss of
ground pounder Allen, Miller
went to' the. air on Avon
Park's first series after the
half, connecting with his
favorite target, Alonzo
(Stick) Robertson, for 33-
yard pass that Robertson
turned into a 77-yard touch-
down.
25-21 Avon Park.
Miller intercepted Veley on


the next series and carried it
to the 12-yard line, but the
Devils couldn't come up with
gold after three carries.
I Lake Placid's Andre.
Wilson then blocked the Red
Devils field goal attempt at
the 14.
Seven minutes into the
fourth, Jones swept left for
another Dragon score after
Navahri Holden set the scene
by picking off Miller.
Guelff again put it through
the uprights,, this time from
28-yards out after the flag
tally, to push the score to 27-
25 Lake Placid.
With 1:30 left in the game,
Avon Park's Miller hit
Robertson again, this time for
a .15-yard fade-away in the
corner of the end zone, cap-
ping the game at 31-27 Red
Devils.
It was definitely an offen-
sive game, with both side-
lines breaking 200 yards
rushing and 300 yards in total
offense.
Lake Placid totaled 301
yards, rushing for 241 of
those.
Veley had four carries for
26 yards, completed six of 20
through the air for 60 yards
and one touchdown with two
interceptions.
Dragon Jones left the Red
Devils green with envy after
he carried 22 times for 138
yards and two touchdowns.
The Devils racked up 350
yards total, 211 of those com-
ing on the ground.
Avon Park's Miller com-
pleted six of 11 for 139
yards, two touchdowns and
two interceptions.

Devonte Pough, #11, dives for the loose ball to recover this Lake Region fumble Friday
night. Pough would also record two interceptions in the game and made a potential
game-saving tackle in the Blue Streak win.


Clarke, Pough stand out


in Sebring win


Continued from 1B
pulled up and launched one
over the defense into the
outstretched arms of Clarke
for a 39-yard touchdown.
"We'd practiced that last
week, before the Hardee
game," Burnett said. "I
knew I didn't want to let #2
(safety Robinson) get it, so I
just threw it over everybody
so Bubba (Clarke) could go
get it."
That might have seemed
like the game changer, a big
momentum swing to carry
over for the rest of the night.
That momentum only
lasted 18 seconds, however,
as Carr found Robinson on
Lake Region's next play for
a 64-yard score to put them
right back up, 21-19.
The Streaks did grab it
back early in the fourth as
the defense forced a
Wilkinson fumble that
Devonte Pough pounced on,
leading to a 26-yard Troy
Talbert field goal for a 22-
21 Sebring lead with nine
minutes left in the game.
Pough stepped up big
again a few minutes later,
seeming to virtually seal the
deal as he picked off a Carr
pass, his second intercep-
tion grab of the night, at the


Sebring 32.
Sebring's next drive did-
n't amount to much, save
for taking another couple
minutes off the clock, but
the defense held the line,
forcing a three-and-out
before Lake Region got one
final dose of Clarke.
Seeking to burn more
time off the clock and keep
the chains moving, Grubb
handed off to Clarke on six
consecutive plays - the first
five going for 25 yards and
the sixth for a 36-yard
touchdown to put the game
seemingly out of reach, at
29-21 with just 1:08 to play.
There would be a bit more
drama, however, as Pough
nearly picked off another
pass, and soon made a
potential game-saving tack-
le.
A pass to Lambert went
.for a 44-yard gain, but it
looked as though Lambert
was off to the races and
headed for a score before
Pough tracked him down on
the far sideline and stop him
at the 22-yard line.
After the Blue Streak pass
rush forced an intentional
grounding, the defensive
backfield sealed the deal
when Clarence Counts


deflected a pass at the eight,
and into the hands of CJ
Massaline, who returned it
34 yards to the 42.
From there, it was a mat-
ter of taking a. knee and
Sebring moved to 2-1 on the
season.
"It was nice to see us play
the whole gam6 tonight and
not let up," Hamlin said.
"Against this team, we had
to play the whole game. On
defense, we gave up some
big plays, but we made
some big plays. Offensively,
we made some mistakes, but
we also made some big
plays."
And those big plays were
just enough on this night.
Clarke was the offensive,
standout, gaining 77 yards
on 11 carries and scoring
two touchdowns on the
ground, while making 8
receptions for 113 yards and
another score, to go along
with the punt return touch-
down.
Grubb went 10-22 pass-
ing for 121 yards.
The Blue Streaks are back
in action Friday, welcoming
the Lake Nona. Lio�s., o

'The clean-up squad' are not buzzards


Birds & Other
Wild Things
Ruth and Hank Kowalski

Welcome to our roost! "The clean-
up squad" would be a title you may.
want to.give our bird selection today.
The black vulture (Coragyps atratus),
together with the turkey vulture
(Cathartes aura), are important to our
ecosystem as we know that they will
consume road kills, dead animals in,
pastures and woodlands, and most apy
place where carrion is located.
The habitat needs of these birds are
quite similar as neither one will build
a nest as we are accustomed to seeing
nests of other birds, even the common
house sparrow or mockingbird.
The turkey vulture will nest on the
ground in the protection of dense veg-
etation, hollow log*or other cavity.
The nesting season extends from
March through July when usually two
eggs are laid.
The black vulture also will lay eggs
on bare ground and seems to prefer a
dense saw palmetto thicket.
Nesting period extends from
January to August, and two eggs are
laid. Young are tended by both parents
and ate fed by regurgitation.
It is fairly easy to distinguish
between these two large birds. The
turkey vulture is eagle-sized with a
longer wingspan than the black vul-
ture.
The wings have a silvery lining,
held upward in a shallow "V". On the
ground, the reddish small head and
larger size than the black vulture is
easily seen.
This vulture locates its next meal
by the odor of carrion and the black
vulture will usually follow the "TV"
(as birders sometimes refer to this
bird) knowing that the TV will lead to
the nedt meal.
The black vulture is more aggres-
sive and will dominate a road kill
after the TV has located it. The black
vulture's wingspan is shorter than the
turkey vulture's and has %white patches
near the wing tips. The beauty of
these soaring birds is always some-
thing to admire,especially on days
with gusty wihds."ps the birds adjust
their flight to meet changing wind

Archbold Biological Station

black vulture (right) are both impor-
tant parts of our ecosystem, cleaning
up dead animals as effective carrion
eaters.


conditions.
Our mentor and friend, Dr. Martin
Stapleton (whose soul now soars with
the angels in heaven) would always
correct us during field trips when
someone would say, "Look at that
buzzard fly!." "Doc" Stapleton would
then remark, "There are NO buzzards
east of the Rockies."
According to the Archbold-
Audubon Lake Placid Christmas Bird
Count, the five-year average count for
black bulture sightings stands at 460,
and the same period for turkey bul-
tures stands at 650. The vulture popu-
lation is holding quite well with the
turkey vulture increasing somewhat. It
is our personal opinion that due to the
increase in local development, more
and more wild creatures are being
"dispossessed," running for their lives
to get out of the way, and being run
over by that great killer - the automo-
bile.. The result of all that mayhem, is,
more food for vultures.
We always enjoy hearing from our
readers and in particular, any unusual
sightings or behavior of birds, and
wildlife. We will be reporting a great


success story of a gentleman in
Sebring who has created a Bluebird
trail that will bring smiles to all our
faces.
Until next time, we wish you great
birding adventures and suggest you
get out there and enjoy our natural
world that our Creator has left us to
protect and conserve.

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


Ridin' and ropin' rodeo

championship: Gene Carter


Florida's 200-year cultural
heritage of pioneer "cow
hunters" was a rugged life
with a nomadic lifestyle for
those who followed the herds
or the rodeo circuit to support
,the only way of life they
knew. Throughout Florida's
"boom days" of the 1900s,
small cities began to sprout
in Central Florida, such as
Avon Park, a place !where
ranchers could grow their,
families and their cattle
herds. Avon Park's Gene
Carter returned to Avon Park
"when I finished my rodeo
career, I returned to the only
job I knew, to be a 'cow-
boy.'"
Most people in Florida had
family-owned cow herds.
Gene had five children (one
deceased) by his first wife. It
was not until 20 years later
after his first marriage ended,
that Gene ran into Margie
Carter, who he had not
"talked to but once and never
talked to her again over all
those years." ,
Margie, a widow, lived in
Avon Park with her three
children. Margie and her par-
ents moved there when she
was 8. Unlike Gene's back-
ground from a "cow hunter"
family, Margie's father was a
lawyer.
When Gene met Margie
again it was when he worked
at the Gene Fulford KICCO
Ranch on State Road. 60.
Margie's son also worked
there and one day she came
to see him. "I saw her cross-
ing the yard and said to
myself, 'Dad gum, there's
Margie.' I walked over and
talked to her. It went well."
One year later, in 1978,
they married at the court-
house in Wauchula and had
an instant family of seven
children.
Due to the nature of the
cattle business, Gene moved


Wild Florida
Nancy Dale

around to various ranches,
working in Immokalee for
Consolidated Immokalee
Cattle, "owned by a business
man in New York City" that
Carter said "didn't know a
horse from a cow. In the
1960-70s, we gathered up
calves in pens and hauled
them by truck to the*
Okeechobee Livestock
Market."
"Immokalee was Isogood
for cattle. FaMnirs eafed
the land for vegetables that
cultured it. Immokalee has
wide prairies, marshes, and
palmettos. To get the cows
out of the muck and swamp,
we roped them and used
about seven dogs to catch
them. After Immokalee, I
bought my own herd. In the
'40s when fence laws were
passed, you bought all the
land you could to 'support
your cows. You need about
25 acres per cow, which cost
then from $3,000 to $10,000.
You could keep steers and
grow them out, but steers get
bigger and compete with
cows. However, land in ,
Florida is good and there was
a lot of it in those days.
Then, the government passed
fence laws because they did-"
n't want any wrecks on the
new roads. It was the popula-
tion increase and cars that
closed the open range."
It also began a new era in
Florida ranching.

Grand Opening.
Thanks to PCI, we're opening arteries and saving lives.

To us, there's no grander opening than one that saves lives.
That's why we're incredibly excited about our PCI program. Now our
experienced interventional specialist and team have advanced technology
in the fight against heart disease.

PCI, or Percutaneous Coronary Intercention (also known as angioplasty)
uses an inflatable, balloon-like device to widen diseased arteries and
increase blood flow to the heart. When the balloon is deflated, a metal
mesh stent is left behind to hold the artery open. In the case of a heart
attack, the procedure can be lifesaving. Better still, elective PCI can
prevent a heart attack in the first place.

This newest lifesaving procedure is the next step in our longtime
commitment to the prevention, diagnosis and rapid treatment of heart
disease. It's also part of our broader mission to deliver physical,
spiritual and emotional healing in a safe, caring environment.
So while you won't find hotdogs or deejays at our grand opening, you'll
find plenty of lifesaving balloons.

Native viburnum is a versatile, hardy plant for gardeners


Some folks
- seem to think
they can't have a
f beautiful garden
using native
plants. One plant
that contradicts
that theory is vir-
burnum. Though
News From there are over
News From 150 varieties of
The this plant,
Watershed Walter's vibur-
Corine Burgess num is native to
Florida and a
good all-around choice for most
gardeners.
Walter's viburnum can be grown
as a small tree or a shrub. It bursts
forth with creamy, white flowers in
late winter and early spring when
few other flowers are found. These
beautiful white flowers form in
clusters and are mildly fragrant. In
the summer, the plant sports a flat-.
tened oval berry that turns from
red to black at maturity. Birds and
other wildlife feed on the fruit and
disperse the seeds. The shrub also
provides nest sites and cover from
predators.
In the wild, the plant can grow
from up to 25 feet tall and live for
about 50 years. It is ideal for bird
nesting because of its spreading,


cross-branched, twiggy crowns.
Generally, it is found in coastal and
river plains from South Carolina,
Alabama and throughout Florida. It
likes moist soils and is often found
in swamps. It can take the cold
fairly well.
Because it is a native plant, it is
adapted well to Florida's hot, wet
summers and dry winters. It is a
hardy plant and can grow in sun or
shade. Unlike its exotic family
members, Walter's viburnum does-
n't need to be clipped very often.
Because it is a fairly slow grower,
it will flower and fruit more often
than the exotic varieties that must
be clipped constantly to be kept in
check.
The leaves are about 1-2 inches,
opposite and shiny. It can have
multiple trunks or send out suckers
and form a thicket where it is
growing. Young twigs have reddish
fuzz that is very attractive. Since it
is an evergreen, it adds color to
gardens especially in the winter
months when other plants may not
be in bloom and are losing their
leaves and color.
For best blooming results,
Walter's viburnum should be plant-
ed in full sun. It will grow quite
well in partial shade, but blooms
will not be as abundant. It is

Walter's Viburnum, a native plant of Florida, 'is an excellent choice for
gardeners that want to attract wildlife.


drought tolerant and, once estab-
lished, needs very little supplemen-
tal watering.
This plant is ideal as a hedge or
shrub. It tolerates pruning and
often is made into a topiary. If left
on its.own, the plant will become a
dense rounded shrub which will
eventually turn into a small tree
with a broad spreading crown.
The plant can be propagated by


cuttings. New shoots from spring
growth or semi hardwood cuttings
in the fall will generally root.
Walter's viburnum is one of
those all-around great plants for
most gardens. It can serve as a
shrub or tree, is easy to propagate,
stays green all year and attracts
wildlife. Butterflies sip the nectar
from the flowers and birds and
other creatures eat the autumn


fruits. It is a favorite for nesting
birds such as cardinals and song
.birds;
Walter's viburnum is just one of
the many native plants that will be
offered at the Air Potato Exchange
Day on Jan. 9.
To learn more about how you
can get a free native plant, you can
attend the second workshop on
Florida's invasive exotic plants and
animals in October. It will be an
opportunity to learn about some of
the problem species of plants in
our county, learn what you can do
about the problem and possibly
win a free, native plant.
The workshop will be free and
refreshments will be served. We
haven't set the October date yet,
but keep watching your newspaper
for updates.

"Attention Retirees: Make Up Your Recent

Market Losses Quickly And Easily Using

Guaranteed Accounts"

That's right! You can make up your recent investment losses
quickly'and easily, while guaranteeing your principal, all at the
same time!

If you are like most retirees, you've lost a pretty substantial
amount of money over the last couple of years in the stock
market. You may have gone all the way from being fully
comfortable to worrying about running out of your money!

Do you feel like you've lost control of your portfolio and your
financial future?

Fortunately, it doesn't have to be that way. You can take back
control, and much easier than you think.

Here are some recent examples:

* Don's IRA went from $800,000 down to $500,000. He was able to
use guaranteed accounts to instantly double the value of IRA
to over $1,000,000 and eliminate substantial tax at the same
time!
* Joe lost $1,000,000 in the recent stock market downturn. He just
wanted to get back to where he was. He used guaranteed
accounts to make up his losses twice as fast compared to just
staying still and doing nothing.


Don't worry, you don't have to have $1,000,000 for this type of
planning to work.
YOU JUST NEED TO HAVE AN OPEN MIND AND BE WILLING
TO LEARN!

DATE: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29Th TIME: 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
PLACE: Inn On The Lakes - 3100 Gofview Rd, Sebring, FL 33870
Light lunch will be served.


Reservations are required as seating is
limited to 30. Please call 863-382-0037.

P.S. Many experts are predicting that the
market is about to drop significantly
again. Remember, you are at the point in
your life where you can't make another
financial mistake.
