SEBRING According to the Lee

for the military style Eagle Training
Center near Venus in Highlands

unpaid property taxes,
A i-eport from the tax collector's
Web site shows Eagle to have


men. That is more than the. entire
male population of Venus. These are
not ministers, but killers. Men com-
ing to train to kill, explode bombs,
force their way into homes ... these
men will attract drug dealers, alcohol,

Rosendall in a letter.

$2,031,784 in unpaid taxes dating
back to 2007 on more than 100 prop-
erties. .
Opponents to the facility have stat-
ed that .because of the delinquent
taxes, Eagle would not make a good
neighbor.
"Mr. Eagle has promised to be a
responsible developer, but that is
doubtful. He is currently delinquent
in the amount of millions of dollars


for 2007 and 2008 Lee County prop-
erty taxes. A number of mortgages on
his Lee County properties have fore-
closed or are currently in foreclo-

IVIan jailed

for robbing

motorist
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy @newssun.com
SEBRING Officers
with the Sebring Police
Department arrested a man
Wednesday night for
armed robbery with a
run. ,,
Latino Tiny Turner,
25, of Sebring, allegedly
opened the rear passenger
door of the victim's car
when the vehicle stopped
at a stop sign at the inter-
section of First Street and
Palm Boulevard.
Turner reportedly point-
ed the gun to the left side
of the. victim's face and
told him to turn the vehicle
and lights off.
He then stated "gimme
your money," SPD officer
tBeuford wrote in the
Turner reached around
to the victim's front right
pocket and removed his
wallet, then got out of the
car, opened the driver's
door and started going
through the victim's
remaining pockets,
Beuford said. During the
robbery, the victim report-
edly had the gun pointed at
his face and neck.
Beuford noted in the
report that there was visual
evidence consistent with
the victim's claims.
As the victim was being
robbed, he looked into
Turner's eyes and recog-
nized him, Beuford said.
The victim allegedly
called out the name "Tiny,".
which is listed as one of
Turner's street names in
the arrest report.
Turner then allegedly
cooked the firearm back,
pushed the victim into' the
vehicle and said "get out of
here." .
When the victim called
the police, Beuford
responded to the area and
- spoke with him. A physical
description of the suspect,
later determined to be
Turner, was given to
Beuford and Turner was
apprehended in the area
with the help of SPD offi-
cer Tom Haralson.
There was no chase indi-
cated in the arrest report.
Instead, officers
approached Turner while
he was in front of 4710
Second St. and ordered
him on the ground, to
which he complied.
Turner was allegedly
identified by the victim as
the person who had robbed
him and he was arrested,
however officers did not
find any weapons in his
possession.
Turner has a lengthy
arrest record dating back to

agedt8,d ue ng ms he
damage under $200 in July
of this year; violation of
probation in May 2007, an
offense he spent roughly
seven months in jail for;
and third degree vehicle
theft in December 2006.
He remained Friday in
the jail on $200,000 bond.

is to raise awareness about

SEBRING According
to United Nations and
Habitat for Humanity fig-
ures, one out tohf every thme
city we rs roug ou e
world, more than 1 billion
people, lives in a slum.
That number is expected-
to rise to over 3 billion peo-
ple or 40 percent of the
world's population by
2030.
Slums are defined by a
lack of water and sanitation,
overcrowding, the use of
inadequate building materi-
als and residents living at
the whim of their landlords.
Because of these poor liv-
ing conditions, UN and
Habitat studies have shown,
women living in slums are
more likely to contract
HIV/AIDS than their rural
counterparts and children in
slums are more likely to die
from water-borne and respi-
ratory illnesses.
Highlands County's medi-
um household income is 26.5
percent lower than the state's
.average and is growing at a
slower rate, according to
Habitat. More than a third of

own coverage. For those
with job-based insurance,
employers would continue
to cover most of the costs.
Most of the uninsured are
in households headed by
someone who's self-
employed or works at a
business that doesn't pro-
vide coverage. It's this
group that Democrats are
trying to help.
Under the Baucus bill, a
family of four making
$63,000 vvould have to pay
11 percent of its income for
health insurance, according
to Kaiser. By comparison,
an earlier bill from the
Senate Health, Education,
Labor and Pensions
Committee with more gen-
erous subsidies required the
same hypothetical family to
pay about 7 percent of its
income for premiums a
difference of about $2,5()0.
oThis is not the loaves
and the fishes you can't
just throw some subsidies
out there and expect that
will take care of every-
body's needs," said Karen
Pollitz, a Georgetown
University professor who
studies the insurance market
for people buying their own
coverage. .
The legislation provides
the most generous subsidies
to those at or near the
poverty line, about $22,000


for a family of four. That's
where the problem is con-
centrated because about
three-fourths of the unin-
sured are in households
making less than twice the
poverty level.
But as income rises, the
subsidies taper off.
For a family of four mak-
ing $45,000, federal subsi-
dies would pick up 71 per-
cent of the premium under
the Baucus plan, according
to the Kaiser calculator.
For a family with an
income of $63,000, the sub-
sidies would only cover 36
percent of the premium.
A family making $90,000
would get no help.
Pollitz said the subsidies
disappear rapidly for house-
holds with solid middle-
class incomes. That could
be tricky for a self-
employed individual who
has a particularly good year
financially.
Another problem is that
people won't be able to get
the insurance tax credits
immediately after the bill
passes. To hold down costs,
the assistance won't come
until 2013, after the next
presidential election.
White House officials say
that while Obama wapts the
cost of the final bill to stay
manageable, it has to pro-
vide affordable coverage.


Continued from page 2A
bills. The legislation is still
a work in progress and the
calculator only a rough
guide. Nonetheless, the
results are revealing.
A family of four headed
by a 45-year-old making
$63,000 a year is in the mid-
dle of the middle class. But
that family would pay
$7,110 to buy its own health
insurance under the plan
from the committee chair-
man, Sen. Max Baucus, D-
Mont.
The family would get a
tax credit of $3,970 to help
pay for a policy worth
$11,080. But the balance

At the root of the con-

place, and Franchesca in fifth
place.
Franchesca, who had sung
country throughout the com-
petition, rose to a challenge
from one of the judges during
the semi-finals and sang the
difficult song "Hero" in the
final round. The judges
praised her courage for step-
ping out of her comfort zone
and encouraged her. "You
,,
have a lovely voice,
McCollum told her, "the song
required a more mature
voice; you'll grow into it."
Arguably, the hit of the
night wasn't a singer but one
of the judges the new
director of the Greater
Sebring Chamber of
Commerce, Greg Harris. Part
of his popularity came from
his unabashed support of the
singers, part from the good
time he was having.
When Kaeli was chided for
keeping the microphone too
close to her mouth Harris
said, "Forget all that, you
were outstanding. Great job."
When judge Scott Maxon
told Ryan who lives in
Zolfo Springs he had done
Hardee County proud, Harris
said,<"You made me proud,
and I'm not even from
Hardee."
During the adult qualifying

"You knocked it out of the

Cheryl Little, "You sounded
like an angel singing," and
Melanie Roskelly, "Beautiful

The audience chose
William Goglin, 86, as their
favorite adult of the evening.

Goglin was asked what
brought him to the Heartland
Idol competition.
"Five weeks ago I had a
heart attack," he said. "I've
always wanted to take part in
this, and in the hospital I
realized if I didn't enter now,
chances are I'm not going to
do it."
When he was asked if he
would go to the Watering

"This development will
threaten the imperiled water-
shed of Fisheating Creek that

explained.
Highlands County com-
missioners will take public
input Tuesday concerning the


approval of several remedial
actions required by the
Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) who has
raised several concerns about
the proposed development.
In ,a legal document dated
Feb. 25, DCA told the county
that the comprehensive
changes needed to allow the
training center were not in

In short, that the county
had made no provisions to
properly identify the avail-
ability of a water supply.
Additionally, DCA that Highlands "did not pro-
vide an assessment of the


environmental resources on
an adjacent to the site."
Si ce the center would be
within the Fisheating Creek
watershed, the submitted
county plan did ndt protect

the water quality flowing mto
Lake Okeechobee.

SEBRING The Civic
Center on Lake Jackson
was the scene of the
Heartland Association of
Realtors' fifth annual
Casino Night fundraiser,
Margaritaville,
"What a fun night,"
Executive Director Arianna
Jordan Burke said. "We had
delicious food prepared by
Zeno's, gave away wonder-
ful door: prizes, danced to
music played by Bob Weed,
and played the gaming
tables, all the time aware
that we were raising funds
to help our community and
those in need."
Burke's credits much of
the evening's success to
Chairperson Denyelle
Dibble, her assistant
Juliana Dhanie and the
6,=;.q q or an
Event sponsors were
MidFlorida Real Estate and
MidFlorida Mortgage,
RE/MAX Realty Plais,
Chapman's Construction
Company (Lake June
West), Mike Chapmen and
William Klohn, J. .E.Putch
Construction, EMCl-
Wireless, Fitness Together,
Heartland Title Insurance
Agency, Highlands
Jewelers, and Basil Makris
of Zeno's Restaurants. *
"Without their contribu-
tions, Casino Night would


.not have been such a huge
success and we thank them
for their continued support
of our fundraising efforts in
our community," Burke
said.
The Association is
donating $4,000 to the
Heartland Food Reservoir,
Highlands County's first
food bank.
"The Realtors and affili-
ate members are always
ready and willing to assist
our community when we
can," Burke said. "We
chose the Heartland Food
Reservoir this year as our
charity not only because of
the need but because 98.1
percent of every dollar
feeds hungry people. Only
1.9 percent is used for
administration and funding.
"There are a number of
sr ones my
Food Reservoir. You can
contribute funds (your gen-
erosity allows the food
bank to continue providing
more food for those who
need it most); contribute
food (food donations are
urgently needed throughout
the year); contribute your
self (volunteers are vital to
success); become an advo-
cate (help onighten others
about the largely, invisible
problem of Winger and
poverty in our communi-
ty)."

percent of the women in the
Navy hold post college
degrees.. Yet only 15 percent
of these degree-holding
women receive promotions or
hold positions of command,"
DiRosa said. "We are sailors
just like they are. They need
to treat us the same.
in closing, DiRosa thanked
those who came before her,
and encouraged the active
duty and reservist in the audi-
ence to continue making the
way for those that follow an
easier path to follow.


In 1997, serving as master
chief petty officer, DiRosa
was selected .at the Navy
League's "Sea Service

She became fleet command

10th Bureau of Medicine and
Surgery Force Master Chief.
DiRosa, a proponent of
diversity in the military, was
the Navy's firsts enlisted
woman selected for both
Force and Fleet Master Chief
and was recognized for the
"Positive Voice Award" by
the Alliance for National
Defense for her example of
woman in military service.
DiRosa is qualified as an
enlisted surface and aviation
warfare specialist and is certi-
fied as a master training spe-
cialist. Although upon her left
chest she sports six rows of
ribbons, she modestly only
mentions the Legion of Merit
(two awards), the Navy and
Marine Corps Commendation
Medal (five awards), and the
Navy and Marine Corps
Achievement Medal (three
awards).
"We have a huge talent
pool in the Navy that \fe can-
not ignore," said DiRosa,
referring to the women in the
Navy. "How do we retain our
talent? We are working on
coming up with ways to meet
the needs of our personnel."
According to DiRosa, there
are up to 12 monthsof defer-
ment for women after they
have had a baby, or 21 days of
uncharged leave for adoptive
parents. The father even gets
10 days maternity leave under
the new plan. There are two

assistance to attend school may be able to
take advantage of a program that provides
up to $3,000 in emergency funds.
According to VA Secretary Erick K.
.
Shinseks, if a student who is a veteran has
applied for Veterans Affairs educational
benefits and has not yet received govern-
ment payment, help could be on the way.
The VA Regional Benefits Offices started
distributing the emergency funds to eligible
students on Oct. 2. These emergency funds
are advance payments of the earned benefits
for housing and textbooks, and will be
deducted from future education payments.
VA officials report that students should be


aware that after the emergency funds pay-
ment, the education payments would arrive
on the normal schedule, beginning the
month following the period for which they
are reimbursed.
Students can go to one of the Veteran
Affairs' Regional Benefit Offices, with pic-
ture identification, a course schedule, and
an eligibility certificate to request the
advance payment of housing and textbook
allowance.
The VA recognizes that some students do
not live near a regional office, and are try-
ing to work out arrangements for trans-
portation to a regional office.

were instrumental in planning
the joint conference held at
the Best Western Hotel Lake

Command Master Chief
Jacqueline DiRosa, a native
of Mt. Olive, Ill., was the
guest speaker for the banquet
on Saturday evening. DiRosa
entered the Navy in July

ing at RTC Orlando.
In her opening remarks to
the banquet attendees,
DiRosa thanked the women
veterans in attendance for
pavitig the way for her and
the women who will folloiv.
"Change is abundant. So is
opportunity."
DiRosa's first assignments
included the San Diego Naval
Hospital and a six-month
deployment to Antarctica
with Naval Support Force
:Antarctica (NSFA) in 1984.
,DiRosa said, "I consider my
time in Antarctica as one of
the most fascinating in my
a
career.
She boarded the USS
Acadia for her first sea tour in,
1988, and completed two
Western Pacific deployments
in support of Operation
Desert Shield/Storm. The
Acadia has since been retired
from the fleet. As a chief
petty officer aboard the USS
Kitty Hawk, she served in the
Operation Southern Watch.

And Another
Thing...
. Dan Hoehne

Don't feel

bad for

Chicago
As shocking to many -
as the Olympic bid
results for the 2016
games may have been,
it's really not that bad of
an outcome.
Considering that South
America had never host-
ed an Olympic Games,
one can't find too much
fault in Rio getting the
nod in Friday's voting.
What shocked so many
wasn't that the U.S.'s
bid, a hopeful Chicago,
was unceremoniously
ousted in the first round
of the voting.
It was a bit of a kick in
the pants, but then again,
the Chicago sports histo-
ry is literally littered with
unceremonious kicks in
the pants, so it s hG# &
it was an unfamiliar feel-
ing.
Nor one from which
the civic pride won't
recover.

AVON PARK "It was
the worst game we have
played this year," said Avon
Park's Head Coach Andy
Bonjokian after losing 48-6
to HarddF at Joe Franza
Stadium Friday night.
"They played smart,. and
capitalized on' our mistakes,
and we gave them .a lot of
capital." Bonjokian said.
"These are all
Hardee fundamental
mistakes that
can be cor-
rected in prac-
Avon Park tice. We will

6 see who wants
to play foot-
ball on
Monday."
Seven minutes into the
first quarter Avon Park recov-
ered a fumble at their own
two-yard line, and that's not
as lucky as it sounds.
Three plays later, the Red
Devils returned the favor,
and the ball, to Hardee and
Jarrius Lindsey punched it in
from the four.
Bad start, let's move on.
Avon Park dropped the
next kick-off and set up
Lindsey, again, this time for
an 18-yard touchdown.
OK, two mistakes, we can
recover,
The Devils fumbled again
on the next series, turning it
over at the 13.


Allen bullet over the middle
front 11-yards out, to get on
the board, but mental mis-
takes and the lightning-fast
Wildcats continued to stun
the Devils all night,
"I was shocked," Avon
Park's Allen said after the
game. "Just .like that, we
were dow 21 points, and


that killed us."
All told, Avon Park fum-
bled four times and threw
two interceptions.
The Wildcats would give
the grin of the Cheshire Cat
every time..
Lindsey picked up 149

Continued on page 3B


. This time Hardee's Jacob
Mayer did, the honor from 10
yards out after having his
first TD, moments earlier,
called back for holding.
Another Avon Park
turnover a series later set up
Hardee's quarterback Esayi
Youyoute, who picked up his
own bouncing pigskin and


rushed 26 yards for the
touchdown.
Avon Park blocked the
point after, leaving the score
27-0 Hardee just 10 minutes
into the first quarter,
The boys from the Park
showed some comeback,
forcing a Hardee fumble to
set up a TK Miller to Teddy

SEBRING The chill in
the air might hitve been the
seasonal temperatures taking
a slight dip.
Or else it may have been
the first-game deficit that
brought back all-too familiar
reminders of the last time
Sebring and Winter Haven
matched up on the volleyball
court.
"This is an emotional
.team," head coach Venessa
Sinitess said after Thursdajr's
come-from-behind, four-
game win. "The last tittle, we
had 4
Sebring Haines City
hango ver
and just did-
Winter Haven n't come to
play."
That
5 heart -
wrench in g
loss in early Septemlar to the
Hornets paved the way to a
four-game funk against the
Blue Devils two days later.
The Lady Streaks took a
much more heartening loss to
Haines City Tuesday, but still
found themselves trailing
Winter Haven, again, two
days later.
"Even though .we lost
Tuesday, we were on a high
for how well we played,"
senior Karley Freeland said.
"I think that made us relax at
,,
the start tonight.

AVON PARK After a
slow start, and some helP
froth the crowd, the Lady
Devils rallied to defeat
Mulberry 9-25, 25-22, 25-
14,.25-12 Thursday hight
in Avon Park.
"We went into the game
with; just nine play- Avon
ers, and we crumbled
our first game," head
coach Stephanie
Devlin said. "Then Mul
some of the football
team showed up and
began to cheer for us
find that gave us
some momentum." "
"For some reason, we
have a hard time winning at
home. I don't know why,
but we do," she said. "They
(Mulberry) have improved
a lot since the first time we


played them, and that
caught the girls by sur-
prise."
Zakia Hart, one of the
Devil's strong hitters, was
out with a hurt wrist for the
first game, but decided to
play through the pain and
ended up having a spectac-'
ular game.
Park "Zakia hit the wall
during practice last
week, and even
5 though nothing was
e ry broken, she was still
in pain. She decided
to give it a try. The
combination of Iris'
(Cotte) setting and
Zakia's follow-through
allowed her to have an awe-
some game," Devlin said.
"We have been working
on some variety in setting

first half, and three touch-
downs.
Hardee's Youyoute carried
seven for 79 yards, and
Mayer busted tackles for 40
yards and two scores.
Avon Park's Allen, who
was questionable due to a
hamstring injury he's been
battling, rushed for 107 yards
on 10 carries and Miller com-
pleted just 4 of 15 passes for
54 yards and the two inter-

The Devils, now 3-2 and 1-

The United States
Olympic Comipittee has
been in shambles in recent
years and has had a frac-
tious relationship with the
IOC, so that surely would-
n't have helped any U.S.
city vying for the Games.
But all that is the behind
the scenes grudges and
maneuvering, and the final
results aren't anything to
read into other than that.
Besides, recent polls in
Chicago showed that a slim
majority of residents were
opposed to the Olympics
being held in the Windy
City.
Though they're so used
to the eternal highway and
road construction going on,
that the extra traffic hassles
probably would have been
seen as just a bit above the
norm.
Point is, the city that

And it's no als i(the
eity's prop has awful,
in fact, so word coming
out of Denni le is that it !
was a pretty good bid.
But other wo s coming
out, at least on piport 1
either read or heard, was
that there was a bit of col-
lusion going on among
International OJympic
Comminee voters to oust
Chicago as early as possi-
ble. since it may have
posed more of a threat later
on.
And to think that the
IOC is above collusion, or
any other sort of under-the-
table sort of behavior, well,
that's wishful thinking.
And it does seem strange
that Madrid finished sec-
ond, seeing as how
Barcelona was the host of
the '92 Summer Olympics
making it seem they
would be more easy pick-
ings in a match-up with
Rio
S
mean, sure, the U.
hosted two Games more
recently than Spain, but of
course, the sizes and eco-
nomic impact of those two
natiolis is quite disparate.
In that sense, it's just as
shocking that Tokyo fin-
ished behind Madrid.
They've been the host as
recently as the '98 Winter
Games in Nagano, and the
Far East had the most
recent Summer Games in
Beijing, but again, popula-
. tion-wise, economically ,
as well as some of the cut-


"I was never really wor-
ried," Sintless said. "TIat's
. how we started out against
Haines City the other night. I
don't know what it is, but we
have these lulls early in
matches, but we came out of
it against a pretty good teain
- a team that equld have
chewed us up and spit us out
- so that was good."
The Streaks were doing
the.chewing up in the second
game, recovering to domi-
nate the action on their way
to a 25-10 feast.
"After that first game,
coach really picked us up and
got us going," Freeland said.
"And we started picking each
other up and coming togeth-
er."
They would need to as
Winter Haven didn't take the
second-game pounding too
well, battling back from an
early deficit to make this one
more of a back-alley brawl.
Up 16-14, Sebring saw the
lead disappear amid an 9-4
Blue Devil run that them
nearl on the brink of defeat
at 23-20.
But a Freeland tip-kill and
a Brit Augustin block spurred
a 4-0 run that now had the
Streaks on the verge of victo-
ry.
But then it \vas Winter
Haven scoring t1vice to go up
one, before Sebring returned
the favor in a back-and-forth
extra point session that had
neither team able to gain that
final two-point margin need-
ed for the win.
Anna West had consecu-
tive scores on a kill and


slowly and surely built up
their lead, from 16-12 on a
Freeland ace, to 24-16 on a
Kaley Walter kill, before fin-
ishing off the 25-18 win.
"To come back and win
three in a row after losing the
first game, says something
about our team, Sinness
said. "But we do still have to
battle with inconsistency.
There was none of that at
Haines City, but say what
you will about the tough five


game loss, it showed up
again tonight and that's
something wp pave tp work
on."
The team will have had a
chance to work on that as
they headed to the coast for

they were slated to face '08

Palm Beach in their opening
match Friday.

27-26, but the Devils evened
things up.
Augustin then sealed the
deal with consecutive kills
for the 29-27 marathon win. .
It looked like the fourth
game might follow a similar
path as Sebring took an early
lead but watched as Winter
Haven roared back to a 10-6
advantage.

flatwoods are fire
dependent and
actually need fire
to survive. In
natural communi-
ties, plants such
as wax myrtle
will generally
come back after
the flames have
passed,
Wax myrtle is
also a great plant
to choose for


left alone to do its own thing.
Dense foliage can be encouraged
by regular pruning or it can be left
untrimmed and form a multiple
trucked, interestingly shaped tree.
It can also create a thicket because
of the suckers that grow from its
base.
The evergreen leaves are a great
addition to any garden and keep a
touch of color in the winter
months. Wax myrtle can grow to
40 feet tall. The leaves are simple,
alternately arranged, oblanceolate
and about 2-4 inches long. The
fruit is small, light green, round
and covered with a bluish wax. The
fruits are in clusters and attached
to short spikes along the branches.
The bark is grayish, thin, smooth
. and patchy in coloration.
The roots of the plant have nitro-
gen-fixing bacteria which allow the
plant to grow in soils that are very
poor in nitrogen content. There are
male and female plants, with the
female producing the fruits.
Overall, the wax myrtle is anoth-
, er excellent choice for most any
landscape. It will be offered at the
Air Potato Exchange 1)ay on Jan. 9
at the agricultural center. Just col-
lect at least one bag of air potato
bulbs, bring them by from 10 a.m.
until 2 p.m. and you can pick out
one of the many varieties of native


If you have lived-in Highlands
County for any length of time, you
are probably familiar with wax
myrtle (myrica cerifera). The
shrubby tree thrives on the ridge
and is very common in the natural
areas of our beautiful county. The
plant is useful in many ways.
Not only is it an important plant
in nature, but it is an excellent
addition to any landscape. Since it
is native and common in this area,
it thrives in the local soils and
weather conditions.
You may be familiar with bay-
terry candles that are burned most-
ly in the Christmas season. These
plants provide the substance to cre-
ate them. Wax myrtle is also
known as southern bayberry or
candleberry because of its pale
blue berries, which are covered
with a waxy coating. Pioneers used
the fruits to make.fragrant bayber-
ry candles. Today, many folks con-
tinue to use the berries to produce
scented candles.
Wax myrtle has a very distinc-
tive scent which comes from the
volatile oils contained in tiny
glands on the leaves. These oils
cause the plant to succumb to fire
very easily. It is a very flammable
plant, which is one of the reasons it
thrives in the plant communities it
lives in. Ecosystems such as pine

your yard or
landscape. It can be used as a tree
or a shrub. It produces berries
which are a favorite food for many
varieties of wildlife. If your desire
is to attract critters, this may be
one-of the best plant choices. The
fruits contain fat and fiber that are
essential to many animals for their
winter diet. Birds such as wild
turkey, bob-white quail, waterfowl,
catbirds, thrashers, bluebirds, vire-
os and warblers are all creatures
that enjoy the plant. These critters
not only enjoy the fruit the tree
produces, but they are the main
dispersers of the seeds. A wildlife-
friendly screen or hedge can pro-
vide food and shelter for many
small mammals and other types of
wildlife as well. .
The plant can either be pruned or

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) -
Capricorri, it's not a sign of weakness to
ask for help. Why do you feel the need
to do everything yourself lately?
Delegate some of your tasks and relieve
your stress.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) Even
more will be expected of you, Aquarius,
when someone close is unable to hold
up his or her end of the bargain for the
time being. You'll be a trouper.
Pieces (Feb. 19-March 20) A few
bumps early in the week lead the way to
an easier time of it later on, Pisces. Just

Aries (March 21-April 20) It's time
to face the music, Aries. You've been
skirting by and now you simply cannot
get away with that. This week you'll
need to be all business.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) Taurus,
it's been a busy few months and you're
ready for a break. It's going to happen
soon. Sagittarius is needy on Wednesday
and you'll have to entertain.
Gemini (May 22-June $1) Make the
inost of a bad situation, Gemini. Try to
see the silver lining and encourage oth..
ers to see it as well. You'll be the hero
for the day and looked at with regard.

soon all eyes will be on you and you're
expected to step up to the plate and take
the lead. It's a situation that may make

it done.

shine. Friday is an exciting day.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Although
you enjoy some solitary time, Virgo, this


week you will be feeling like you want
some more company around. Have a
party or do a dinner for fastily.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Libra, a
tiff between you and a friend may lead
to a permanent end to the friendship.
That is unless you take steps to mend
the fence. Decide if this is what you
want.
Scorpion (Oct. 24-Nov. 22} It'll take
a lot of determination to survive the
week, Scorpio. Financial matters cause
some anxiety, and you may have to
reassess your budget in the days to
come. .
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
- Sagittarius, too much of a good thing
can turn sour. Therefore, don't expect
the world from friends and family mem-
bers; they can't spend every waking
hour with you.

Harris As the
baby
gator struggled to free itself,
she once again slipped com-
pletely into the water and
began stirring up a current
with her legs and tail. The
baby was caught up in this,
pulled under the water and
then quickly reappeared on
the water's surface just
behind her. As the baby
swam towards the shoreline,
the now empty shell floated
away in the other direction. I
observed this activity four
times,
Darkness began to fall and
it was time to head home.
The abundance of hatchlings
moving around made trying
to count them impossible. I
just couldn't keep track of
who I had already counted! I
estimate that she had about
30 before I left for the
evening.
By now most of the alliga-
tor nests have hatched and
your chances of observing
the young are very good.
Please remember to use cau-
tion and never get too close
to a mother gator and her
young. As with all the ani-
mals you may see in the
park, these gators are wild
creatures and can be unpre-
dictable. Enjoy viewing
them from a safe distance.

Pardon our dust
As park visitation increased
over the years, it became
apparent that upgrades and
enhancements to park facilities
would be needed.
The Friends of Highlands
Hammock has helped with
many improvements over the
past 15 years including pur-
chases of equipment, supplies,
vehicles and even building and
construction enhancements.
It is now time for some
additional improvements that
are part ofa Florida Park
Service work project previous-
ly planned from umt manage-
ment plan reviews.
The first enhancements will
begin very soon.Paving of the
roadways in the park's fanuly

ceTap e rw p dedbset-
visitors that c with us
throughout thampsy season.
Camping accommodations
have grown from their modest
beginnings years ago and
hard-surfaced roadways will
be a big improvement to the
dirt roads that currently pro-
vide access. Campers may be
reassigned to sites away from


the paying activity to help
reduce exposure to noise and
the temporary road closures
necessary during the time
work is conducted
Once the campground road-
ways are completed, the park's
popular "Loop Drive" will be
next. A four foot bicycle path-
way will be added to the road-
way edge, providing safer
access to bicyclists, runners
and walkers, while also meet-
ing new state-mandated guide-
lines.
Visitors should expect some
temporary closures to this area
during the paying process. It is
estimated that this project
should take about three weeks
to complete. During the con-
struction, please be sure to
avoid any barricaded areas to
ensure your safety due to the
usage of heavy equipment.
Once both paying projects
are complete, then it will be
time for the new picnic area
rest room and two new pavil-
ions to be constructed. The <
restroomfacility will greatly
enhance visitor comfort, espe-
cially durir\g large special

During a recent interpre-
tive meeting at the park,
Ranger Rick Sanchez men-
tioned that it was nearly time
for our alligator nests to
begin hatching. He had taken
note of the location of three
nests shortly after they had
been completed and had put
them on his calendar. We all
agreed to keep an eye out so
we'd be able to know when
the first babies starting
hatching.
Just tivo days later, Rick
came by my office to let me
know that one nest was

that day, I stopped by to see
the action. The momma
gator was still in the process
of tearing into the nest and
removing her grunting
babies,
She would climb out of .
the water, clamber up to the
nest located about four feet
up on the bank and begin
digging into the two-foot-by-
two-foot, compost-like pile.
Her long claws scratched up
pine needles and leaf litter to
reveal milky colored eggs
and black and yellow striped
hatchlings.
She would stretch deep
into the nest, disappearing
almost up to her midsection
and then reappear with a
wriggling young in her
mouth. Silently she would
turn around and walk back to
the water's edge. She would
submerge herself and the
young in the water and then
stir up a slight current with
her legs and tail. The baby
would swim around a bit and
then join its siblings at the
edge of the canal. From time
to time one of the young .
would jostle its neighbor,
causing them all to begin
their chirp-like croaking.
The mother would rest at
the water's edge until the
muffled grunts of still
entombed young spurred her
to action once more. She
would climb out of the water
and back up to the nest.
Once again she began dig-
ging and collecting young in
her mouth to bring to the
water.:Several times I was
able to witness this laborious
process..
Having finished bringing
the already-hatched young to
the water, she rested awhile
before going back to the nest
to dig again. She emerged
with several eggs. Holding

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

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

USE IT OR LOSE ITy

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
utility bill.
One more thing. Next year (2010) a new law
will make most existing air conditioners
effectively obsolete! This is a law banning the
manufacturing of air conditioners using the
refrigerant R-22. When that happens, I predict
that the cost of this refrigerant will also
skyrocket, which means your old air
conditioner could become very expensive to

younger generation built screened
in structures with bunk beds and
wouldn't sleep out on the ground,"
added Gene Carter.
Many of the Carter family mem-
bers work on the ranch. Since
Gene has been a cowboy all his
life, he is passing on the ranching
tradition to his children and grand-
children, who are cowboys and
cowgirls on his crew. The Carters
lease 16,000 acres on the 109,000-
acre Avon Park Air Force Bombing
Range (APAFBR) that was
acquired by the government in
1942 to train military pilots and
the army in ground-to-air war
strategies.
The mission of the APAFBR is
to manage special use airspace,
assets and diversified training pro-
grams for military ground troops.
The base manages a large nature
reserve of 106,110 acres with cat-
tle grazing rights that Gene Carter
utihzes.
Margie Carter says in the 60
years they have hved by the range,
they have never seen a crash
although "we do see theip bomb
the targets.'J Gene says that leasing
the land for cattle involves rotating
them during the bombing prac-
tices, but "we get used to it.
. As a rancher for more than 40 .
years, Gene conveys a practical
code to live by that he passes on to
the next generation: "Be honest,
don't lie and always tell the truth.
Whatever you do, do the best you
can. I don't know nothing about
the future, but I hope all will turn
out OK."
As far as the present, Gene says,
"You better cherish the land, agri-
culture, and cows as they aren't
making any more land.

theKnawn)asCthhaern tonof horm and
founded in 1886, is located in the
heart of Highlands County with
numerous pristine lakes and old
Florida woods.
It was first settled in 1884 by
original investor Oliver Martin .
Crosby, of Danbury, Conn., and
editor of "The South," a New York
publication promoting Florida
worldwide. Crosby also had a
. quest to write about the swamps
and its inhabitants of snakes, alli-
gators and other native reptiles.
Crosby's articles attracted other
adventurers to the area including a
couple from England, Mr. and Mrs.
William'King. Mrs. King, enam-
ored by the beauty of the wilder-
ness suggested they re-name the
town from "Lake Forest" to "Avon
Park" as the beautiful, stately
pines and clear lakes reminded her
of her original home in Stratford-
on- Avon, the birthplace of
William Shakespeare.
As Florida gained a reputation
as the "Sunshme State," many
farmers and ranchers also migrated
to the area to grow their families,
their crops, and their cattle.
Pioneer Florida ranchers, Gene
and Margie Carter today live with-
in the rolling hills of Avon Park
surrounded by the aroma of orange
groves and native habitat. They
have horses, Brahman crossbred
cows and three emus. In the wood-
en stable behind the house is
where Gene's trusty workhorse
*Dexter is penned. Gene raised
Dexter from a colt and when bene
is saddled on him, he responds
with the slightest cue from the
reins.
Running beside the horse and
cowboy is Gene's cur dog, Spot,
that is as respective to Gene as he
is to granddaughter, 7-month-old
Rylee Kay Culbertson. *
Margie Carter always played a
major role as a "cowgirl.

toward changing the zoning to
allow the military training center
to go forward. The threat to the
rookery is only one of the many
objections brought about by con-
cerned citizens. Please keep track
of the proceedings as they appear
in our newspapers.
It is well known that the swal-
low-tailed kite is easily disturbed
by loud noises and will abandon
nests if noises persist. Without a
doubt, this raptor is one of the
world's most beautiful birds. The
deeply forked tail, contrasting
black and white plumage and
graceful, often acrobatic, flight
sets this bird apart from all others.
The nesting season for swallow-
tails extends from late March
through June when two eggs are
laid in a good-sized nest place(
high in a tree. Lizards, grasshop-
pers and even snakes are taken by
this bird. Being a raptor, a meal
may include a baby bird snatched
out of an unguarded nest. That's

Rud & Hank Kou'akki-
Welcome to our roostl, We had
every intention to give our readers
a report regarding a fine Bluebird
Trail that has been brought to our
attention, but an almost emergency
situation has come up regarding a
serious threat to our population of
Americari swallow-railed kites
(elanoides fo 14s y.
As you mafinow, there is a
large, important swallow-tailed
kite rookery in the Venus area,
'close to Fisheating Creek.
According to ornithologist Ken
Meyer,'tliat roost has held up to
2, Q.to sparethan 3,000 birds
be Wli-ds inigrate to South

A di s the threat? A proposed
E e
dNea u tm1rain g Center
intends to build a facility on 7,660
acres in the southern section of
Highlands County, right smack in
the Venus area. This facility will
have a welcome center, class-
rooms, 1,000 dormitory rooms, 25
single-family residences and 100
multi-family residences; military
operations urban terrain facilities
to include live fire (up to 50 cal-
iber) shoot houses, three training
buildings up to five stories high, a
live-fire track, two training towers
of 250 feet, a helipad and a 6,000-
foot runway. They would have
their own water and sewer facili-
ties. The cost is listed as $425 mil-
lion, privately funded.
The rookery, as mentioned
above, had been under' a serious
threat by the Florida Power &
Light Co., which had waited to
build a coal-fired electric plant
very close to the rookery. After
much public outcry and with the
help of several environmental
organizations the Audubon
Society included the FPL decid-
ed not to build the plant.
