Volunteers'

efforts drive

success
BY CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.comn
SEBRING - Darlene Phypers,
drove her golf cart all over
Fireman's Field Tuesday morning.,
giving directions, fielding ques-
tions, and problem solving all at
once.
It was the first day of Ag-
Venture, the three-day event that
opens up the world of agriculture
to every third-grader in the county.
Phypers was surrounded by vol-
unteers, all wearing the distinctive
Ag-Venture T-shirt.
Pausing for a second, Phypers
looked around her at the organized
chaos of excited activity, a smile
of true joy on her face.
"We sure couldn't do it without
the volunteers," she said. "It's all
about the volunteers."
Phypers and her daughter,
Danielle Daum, are the two people
who thought up the idea for Ag-
Venture 10 years ago.
But as Phypers said herself, the
event has long since become a
labor of love for hundreds of peo-
ple of all ages and backgrounds -
from students to retirees, from city
folk to longtime growers and
ranchers.

her seventh year, dressed up as a

New mental health care resource opens


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - A new mental health resource has
opened in Highlands County.
Opposite Habitat for Humanity's Re-Store at 154 S.
Commerce Ave., the Reflections Wellness Center is
now taking clients.
While it accepts some Medicare and Medicaid
patients, other insurance carriers are pending. In the
ame e, according to its founder Leonel Mesa, it has
a "generous sliding scale."
Mesa is a doctor of psychology who has spent 21
years specializing in domestic abuse.
Gov. Charley Crist appointed him to one committee
looking into how to prevent child abuse and another
looking into how to reform faith based/community
based mental health support.
He has two other centers, one in Miami Lakes and
one in Davie, near Fort Lauderdale.
Mesa said he decided to open a center in Highlands
County because significant pockets of need had been
identified here, especially among people challenged by

Mesa also worries that the Hispanic community is
under-served because of the language barrier.

Asbestos


debris


continues


to pile up

12 more sites found
along Parkway, as well
as large piles at landfill
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - The Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection identified 12 more sites so
far along the Sebring Parkway where
samples of concrete fragments col-
lected throughout September and
October tested positive for asbestos.
Additionally, large piles of the
asbestos-concrete pipe have been
located at the Highlands County
Landfill.
According to Randal Landers, proj-
ect manager for FDEP, a total of 76
fragments collected and analyzed
from the 14 locations were "found to
be non-friable asbestos-containing-
material (ACM)."
The sample fragments were collect-
ed on Peach Street, Grapefruit Street,
in a retention pond on Grapefruit
Street, on the grass medium between
Center and Lemon streets, at the inter-
section of Lemon Street and the
Sebring Parkway, along Violet
Avenue, in the median near
Nasturtium Avenue, along both shoul-
ders of Eucalyptus, on the Palmetto
Walking Trail, and at the corner of
Commerce and Highlands avenues.
The original complaint is now post-
ed online at
http://www.dep.state.fl.us/south/sebri
ng/SebringAsbestos.htm, and is
updated as information is available.
The pictures and the narrative of
sample collection show that most of
the fragments were just sitting on the
ground out in the open.
Some samples were collected in the

County, state

at odds over

asphalt plant

grant payments
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
---SEBRING-- - With a '3-2 vote,
Highlands County Commissioners
reluctantly passed a request to revise
the SunTrust payment schedule for the
equipment at the asphalt plant during
their regular meeting on Tuesday, but
expressed their displeasure about not
being informed about issues with the
state.
The changes could potentially cost
the county an additional $33,000 in
savings.
The item was originally set for the
consent agenda, and was pulled for
further discussion just before the
meeting started.
Having the item on the consent
agenda did not make Commissioner
Jeff Carlson happy.
"We were just kept in the dark about
this," Carlson said. "If it had not been
pulled for discussion, we. would still
be in the dark."
Tim Mechling, of the Highlands
County Office of Management and
Budget, told commissioners that budg-
et revisions were made because an
expected $1.65 million grant from the
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) was not coming in as
promised.
"The county has only been issued
$758,220 of the $1.65 million so far,"
Mechlin told commissioners.

: Social to the News-Sun
The 11th Annual Heartland Signature Chefs Auction at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12, will
honor the memory of Chloe Lynn Holton.


11th Signature Chefs Auction


to honor Chloe Lynn Holton


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Many of you
may know the story of pre-
cious little Chloe Lynn
Holton. She was born Nov.
18, 2008 to Lawrence and
Sarah Holton of Orchid Hill
Stables, Sebring. Chloe
weighed 3 pounds, 14 ounces
at birth and was a fighter
from the beginning. After 14
days in the Neonatal
Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
her lungs were strong and
she was eating well, so at 4
pounds - less weight than a
gallon of ice cream, but a
whole lot sweeter - she went
home.
While in the NICU, Chloe
received artificial surfactant,
an essential therapy for the
immature lungs of extremely
premature newborns. In the
1950s and '60s, despite the
best efforts of doctors., many
premature babies died of res-
piratory distress syndrome,
or RDS. Their lungs would
open after birth, but become
brittle and damaged, often
collapsing.
What they lacked is pul-
monary surfactant - a natural
soapy substance created by
special cells in the air sacs of
mature lungs that helps them
balance the pressure on their
outside with their internal
pressure and' remain open to
incoming air. In the 1980s,
therapy using artificial sur-
factant was developed by
March of Dimes grantee Dr.
T. Allen Merritt of the UC
San Diego Medical Center.
Since then, the number of
babies who die from RDS
has declined by 90 percent.
Thanks to donors, sponsors,
and researchers like Merritt,
the introduction of artificial
surfactant into the trachea
and lungs of preemies has
enabled tens of thousands of
babies to survive. A success
to be celebrated, no doubt,
but much remains to be done
in the March of Dimes mis-
sion to prevent premature
birth, birth defects, and
infant mortality.
If you do know Chloe's
story, then you know that in
her case, God had a different
plan. Chloe was, and still is,
loved by many. She was with
Sarah constantly, of course,
and finally, at eight weeks,
she was big enough to show
off.
On Jan. 14, Sarah
announced to Lunch Club
Wednesday, a local ladies
networking group, that she
and Chloe would be collect-
ing items for families with

Elan in Sebring

babies in the NICU. Sarah
had first-hand experience
with the struggle and wanted
to make care packages with
basic necessities for other
families spending days at a
time visiting their babies in
the hospital. However, later
that- evening at home, little
Chloe Lynn went to be with
Jesus.
Lawerence and Sarah were
volunteers with the March of
Dimes before Chloe was
born, and remain active on
the Chefs Auction committee
this year. During Chloe's
brief life and even afterward,
Sarah found helpful informa-
tion about her condition on
the March of Dimes Web site
(www.marchofdimes.com)
and comfort fro mother fami-
lies and stories through the
March of Di es NICU
Family online (www.sharey-
ourstory.org).
If you'd like more insight
into Chloe's story and the
Holton family, please visit
their site, www.orchidhillsta-
bles.com.
Support for families like
Chloe's and causes like the
March of Dimes is on the
menu at four more local
restaurants. Jimmy's Greek
American Grill is a rookie at
the Chefs Auction, but not at
serving great food. Though
newly opened, co-owner
Jimmy Lilopoulos has 40
years in the business. The
extensive menu includes
Greek specialties, stuffed
peppers, eggplant parmigana
and even Greek groceries like
coffee and wine, olive oil,
smoked fish, pastas and
Tzatziki sauce.
Bob Evans Restaurant is
returning to the Chefs
Auction for a second year
and is certain to "Rise &
Shine" when they serve up
the home-style food and
friendly service that
Heartland residents have
come to appreciate.
If experience is a lock on
winning, then Beef
O'Brady's has the right game
plan. They return to the
Chefs Auction this year for
the sixth time. Well known
for their family style sports
bar, great food, and TV mon-
itors galore, Beef's is hard to
beat for any team party or
family get together to watch


or celebrate a game.
Taking 10th spot may be
somewhat of a "phantom
player," Chef MacGregor
Gentleman from the Palms of
Sebring. You might not think
of The Palms right off the
bat, but they are "celebrating
50 years of improving lives"
and their food is great. Chef
Mac has participated in past
chefs auctions in Chicago
and received his culinary
training from a faculty of
French master Chefs at Le
Cordon Bleu in Paris. He
offers high-end catering and
an auction package for din-
ing that's certain to be a hit
even after you savor his fare
at the auction!

County tax roll


continues to drop


By DAVID BREED
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Myrna
Spencer, accounting direc-
tor for the Highlands
County Tax Collector's
Office, made an annual
presentation to the Board of
County Commissioners on
Tuesday.
Spencer said that the
total tax roll for the county
continued to drop over the
past year, and this trend
looks to continue in the
future. As of Oct. 1, the
Certified Tax Roll for 2009
was $107 million, down
from $115 million in 2008
and $129 million in 2007.
"The reason for tax roll
decrease is that we don't
have people coming in after
the tax sale," Spencer said.
There was, however, an
increase in total revenue of
$665,242 from the
Department of Motor
Vehicles.
"This is not what we


expected," Spencer said.
"When the 'state
increased their fees, our
office responded to that by
telling the public that they
could come in early and
they. could renew for two
years. A number of people
took advantage of that,"
Spenser added.
According to Spenser,
the drop in collection rates
will have an impact in
Highlands County in the
next fiscal year.
"We anticipate there will
be a reduction in the tax-
able value of property next
year," Spencer said. "On
the tax sale, we fully agree
that less people will come
to the table and they will
have less money to spend."
It was also noted that
possible legislative changes
could be made to the
Department of Motor
Vehicles fees as well as
property taxes.

TODAY'S EDITORIAL


Join in the drive


T o borrow
from Charles
Dickens, we
live in the best of
times and the worst
of times.
Not that today in
Highlands County compares
to living in Paris during the
French Revolution, but the
economic downturn has hurt
many families and sadly,
there are adults and children
who are going hungry.
We don't raise this painful
fact to wring our hands about
it.
In fact, just the opposite.
The famous American heart
still beats strong, and our
justly earned reputation for
generosity has been passed to
yet another generation.
The News-Sun wants
everyone to know that the
Future Farmers of America
chapters in our middle and
high schools are taking part
in an extended food drive
aimed at helping local food
pantries fill their shelves.
Under way since Sept. 26,
the drive will continue until
Feb. 26.
FFA students will be col-
lecting non-perishable food
items at their schools from
now until then, and will be
having special events along
the way.


The Tractor Supply Co.,
next to the Sweetbay grocery
store on U.S. 27 in Sebring,
is helping in the project. The
store, which is open from 8
a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday and
Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 6
p.m. on Sunday, has offered
to be a collection point.
Simply donating a can of
baked beans, a jar of peanut
butter, or a sack of rice can
make a huge difference if all
of us join in the drive.
We have helped many
nations in the past, even for-
mer enemies - just ask any
German or Japanese.
Now it is our own who are
hurting. Contributing a can of
corn or a box of pasta once a
week will make a significant
difference.
Recently we seem to be
drawing away from one
another, allowing our fears
and anger to divide us.
. It is way past time to work
at finding common ground -
it does exist.
Here is a, way to come
together, joining in a county-
wide effort to feed the strug-
gling among us.
Stop by any middle or high
school or Tractor Supply Co.
with a donation of food. Be a
part of a solution to a real
problem.
You'll feel the better for it,
and we can take reassurance
that we can join in a common
cause.

cialists to take their issues
to? Congress has been com-
plaining about our broken
health ,care policies for
years, but I think they just
needed a platform on which
to run for office. Health care
isn't broken; it just needs
some regulation. (Now
there's a word we haven't
heard for a long time.)
In our case, I became ill
during the summer of 2008
when my husband and I were
traveling. It took several
months before the illness
was diagnosed. In retrospect,
diagnosing the problem was
an indication of part of what
is wrong with our health
care program here in the
United States.
As we endeavored to find
out what my illness was,
numerous tests and diagnos-
tic procedures were done. In
Pennsylvania, I discovered
an MRI with blue dye costs
more than $3,000. In
Florida, once we returned
home from our travels, the
very same MRI with blue
dye costs a little more than
$1,500. A procedure is a pro-
cedure, and regulating health
care diagnostics could save
us (the ones who ultimately
foot the bill) a great deal of

money.
Medical insurance
providers require doctors,
hospitals, nursing care facili-
ties, and diagnostic centers
scan a catalog or directory
listing codes that cover
every procedure or reason
for the patient's visit, admis-
sion, or test. This is
required to see if it can be
covered.
That being the case, why
are there such variations of
costs on the patient's bill? I
would venture to say the
cost of a hospital stay would
be cut almost in half some-
times if there were better
oversight and more regula-
tion of the price of goods
and services provided. For
example, bandages for a
wound should not cost $300
when the same box of gauze
pads costs only a few dollars
on the pharmacy shelf. A
hospital room fee should be
the same no matter where it
is.
We are told (if we ask)
that the high cost of medical
malpractice insurance makes
it necessary for hospitals,
health care facilities, diag-
nostic centers and physicians
to charge astronomical
prices. Why?
One reason is lawyers now
advertise their services and
go after potential clients
based on accidents or just


word-of-mouth happenings.
They even "hang out" in
hospitals tryingtto land a
lawsuit by brow-beating a
victim into suing someone
about something. Huge fees
and final judgments make
insurance costs skyrocket,
and that makes our premi-
ums go up. When someone
is permitted to sue a fast
food chain because that per-
son spilled hot coffee in
their lap, it's just another
ridiculous example of what
causes high malpractice
suits.
Another reason: Lobbyists
are in Washington in the
faces of Congress men or
women, working to get big
benefits for the pharmaceuti-
cal, diagnostics or supply
companies who are paying
them (the lobbyists) enor-
mously high dollars to be
there. Cost of said high dol-
lars is then passed along to
the consumer or patient by
way of the middle man (the
doctor, the hospital, the drug
store, etc., etc.).
There are some other ram-
ifications to what's coming
down the pike. For instance,
health care insurance will
soon be so costly, no one
will be able to afford it. We
will be forced into the gov-
ernment-run plan, which is
what the Democrats want,
believe it or not. They have
already told large corpora-
tions there will be penalties
if they provide or offer
health care to their employ-

Skipping along the
forgotten paths
Editor:
Sir Winston Churchill
made these statements:
1. "Socialism is the phi-
losophy of failure, the creed
of ignorance and the gospel
of envy - its inherent virtue
is the equal sharing of mis-
ery."
2. "If I were asked the dif-
ference between Socialism
and Communism, I could
only reply that the Socialist
tries to lead us to disaster by
foolish words and the
Communist drives us there
by violent deeds."
3. "Socialism is insepara-
bly interwoven with totali-
tarianism and the abject wor-
ship of the State."
Is this where our nation is
heading and is this what we
want? Since Churchill's
time, Socialism and
Communism have not
changed. Yet we seem to be
skipping along their paths
and forgetting the paths that
were taken to have attained
this great nation. But we do
nothing. We think we have
plenty of time, but when
fighting these ideologies,
time is not with us.

LP Swim Team
makes town proud
Editor:
On behalf of the mayor's
office and the people of
Lake Placid, we want to con-
gratulate the Lake Placid
Swim Team, coaches, volun-
teers/parents and especially
the swimmers and divers on
winning both of your invita-
tional meets and the district-
wide competition all in the
same year. This is a historic
achievement for your team
and our high school. I under-
stand that the team has pro-
gressed even further to the
upcoming regional meet in
Orlando on Nov. 6. We wish
the team all the very best at
the regionals.
Most importantly, I also


TODAY'S LETTERS
understand that, in addition
to coaching the team to
excellence in swimming and
diving, the coaches are
teaching the team the princi-
ples of character and sports-`
manship to make them out-
standing future citizens of
our community. We are
grateful for the coaches'
commitment and the time
spent to benefit our youth.
Congratulations to all of
you - this is truly a histori-
cal achievement. We take
honest pride in all of you.

Remember our
veterans
Editor:
In 1924, the Veterans of
Foreign Wars registered the
name Buddy Poppy with the
U.S. Patent Office. It repre-
sents the blood shed by
American military service
members and reminds us of
their sacrifices. The Buddy
Poppy is assembled by dis-
abled and needy veterans in
VA hospitals. Proceeds from
Buddy Poppy Drives are
used for aid, relief and com-
fort of needy veterans and
members of the Armed
Forces and their dependents.
Poem written in 1915 by
John McCrae:

In Flanders fields the pop-
pies blow
Between the crosses, row
on row.
That mark our place; and
in the sky
The larks, still bravely
singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the
guns below.

We are the Dead, Short
days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw
sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and
now we lie
In Flanders Fields.

Take up our quarrel with
the foe:
To you from failing hands
we throw


The torch; be yours to
hold it high.
If ye break faith with us
who die
We shall not sleep, though
poppies grow
in Flanders fields.

Please support the organi-
zations who show their sup-
port by promoting the Buddy
Poppy Drive.

Czars have had a
place in American
history
Editor:
Dale O'Leary's 'From the
Right Side' column of Sept.
25 takes local journalism to
a new low. She claims that
"self-avowed communism
and revolutionaries" are
being given important jobs
in the executive branch. Like
her predecessor, Senator
Joseph McCarthy, she has no
evidence for these claims.
O'Leary complains of
presidential "czars" and
wants to know why they are
not approved by Congress.
Ms. O'Leary simply does not
know her history. The term
"czar," though perhaps silly,
has been in use for a long
time and some have been
confirmed by the Senate,
depending on their function.
Lyndon Johnson appointed
Sargent Shriver as Poverty
Czar and also a Latin
American Affairs Czar, both
confirmed by the Senate.
Since the first Bush
Administration, six Drug
Czars have been confirmed
by the Senate.
The Obama
Administration has an
Information Czar, a position
created by statute. Likewise,
the position of Stimulus
Accountability and
Oversight Czar was also cre-
ated by statute. Obama's
Intelligence Czar and

Finding joy despite the circumstances


They say ignorance is
bliss ... Sometimes it is.
Sometimes it could be fatal.
There are times I walk
around with a smile on my
face, singing a tune as if all
the world is well. Does it
mean I'm ignorant, not
aware of the world around
me? No, working at the
News-Sun keeps me
informed about the commu-
nity and its many wonderful
citizens and events.
The truth of the matter is
we don't live in a rose gar-
den. Yes, thank God for the
many hard-working citizens
that keep this county going.
The county commission tries
to make this area a better
place to raise our children;
ranchers/farmers keep food
on our tables; hospital
employees strive to keep us
healthy; the postman keeps
us in touch with others far

Journey

away; the barbers and hair-
dressers keep us looking
good and the list goes on for
all the behind-the-scenes
people who make our world
pleasant.
Then there's the other side
of the coin. Women (and
even men), children and eld-
erly are being abused at this
very moment; there are peo-
ple getting another fix from
their drug of choice; and
there are alcoholics suc-
cumbing to that drink at the
office party. There is help
and some of us may need to
help them find it. (Needless
to say I've missed some in
both camps).
No, life isn't perfect, but
then neither are we. Like


Pastor Bill Breylinger at
Union Congregational
Church says, "This is earth,
we're not in Heaven yet.
Nothing is perfect and noth-
ing will be until we get to
Heaven." We haven't
arrived, but thatthat doesn't
mean we can't find joy with-
in despite the circumstances
surrounding us.
In my experience, having
faith in God brings peace;
knowing no matter what, He
is in control. If I've learned
anything (and I'm always
learningi, it's that I am not
in control of my circum-
stances. And it does drive
me batty at times, but I don't
have to be in control. I'm
not God.
Yes, of course, there are
areas (like our health, our
attitude, how we relate to
others), that with God's help

What's really wrong with health care?


Continued from page 4A
ees. I suppose that's why the company my
husband retired from has just informed us
that, in three years, they will no longer
subsidize our health care coverage. We pay
a certain portion now but, in three years,
they won't pick up the tab for any of it. No
doubt they see what's ahead and they're
just falling in step with the government's.
plan. It's a bit scary, however, for those of
us on fixed incomes with existing long-
term illnesses that have no cure and have
extenuating health issues ahead.
You would do well, Washington, to lis-
ten to your constituents. The plan you
offer is not complete. There are no guide-
lines in place, there are no methods or pro-
cedures attached to it. It simply describes
each point, but there is no organizational
structure to it. No departments have been
designed or set up to handle any of it. And
it's loaded with things we don't want or
need. So why are you pushing it through?
Why must it be approved immediately?
Why not work out the "bugs" and make it
a real plan with input from your con-
stituents? Why not make it work for us if
we have to pay for it?
No, Mr. Obama ... your plan should be
looked at and worked over and include
things that make sense. If it's not to be
implemented until 2013 (yep, that's what
they're saying!), why must it be


"approved" now before it's really a health
care plan at all? I'm all for "change" if it's
a change for good. Our health care pro-
gram isn't broken; it's one of the best in
the world. But it does need some regula-
tion, some guidelines, and some parame-
ters. It should make doctors and hospitals
and health care facilities all work with
fixed prices. There should be caps on costs
and fees. Everyone would have the same
level playing field and costs would be
more in line with what we can afford.
Back off, Congress. Don't saddle
Americans with $8 trillion in debt just to
say you gave us a health care plan in the
first six months. Why not listen to some
folks who know what they're talking
about? Why not listen to your people for a
change. It just might get you re-elected.

only medication available that can alleviate the
extreme pain and almost paralytic condition.

Never do I mean to make

In contrast, George W.

Delay in grant payments eating into asphalt plant profits


Continued from page 1A
According to Ken Wheeler,
the Highlands County
Asphalt Plant Manager, the
payments form the DEP grant
of $1.65 million was being
held by another state agency.
"Another state office has
changed the way they are
interpreting this," Wheeler
said.
Wheeler told commission-
ers that he did not remember
what the name of the state
agency was without looking
at his notes back at his office,
but that they had decided
they would question the
arrangement with Highlands
County.
Carlson asked board attor-
ney Ross Macbeth if he had
looked at the language of the
grant, and why the proposed
changes were made.
"I have not," Macbeth
responded, adding that this
was the first he had heard of
the changes.
"Why were we not
informed of this?" Carlson
asked again,
"Part of the reason we
voted for this was to save the
interest on $1.65 million. We
have already eaten into a
large part of those savings by
these changes. This is some-
thing we need to be on top
of," Carlson insisted.
"We thought we were get-
ting a $1.65 million grant.
That's the last we heard of
it," said chairperson Barbara
Stewart.
"The $1.6 million is still
there, we are going to get
smaller payments over a two-
year period," Wheeler said.
"There is no other reason
that the DEP is holding these
funds?" asked Carlson.
"The DEP agrees with our
position, it is just the state
agency who issues checks,
they questioned this,"
Wheeler responded.
"It would have been a good
idea to let the board know
that this was happening. We

were not aware about this.
This board was specifically
told in August that this (lease
refinance) would meet the
terms of the grant, that is why
we allowed the refinance and
paid $15,000 to that consult-
ant that did not do anything,"
Carlson continued.
"Your staff was advised by
DEP that this would take care
of these issues from a second
agency in charge of the dis-
bursements of these funds,"
said Assistant County


Administrator Ricky Helms,
who was filling in for County
Administrator Michael
Wright.
"We are at the mercy of
when they choose to disperse
these funds," Helms added.
Commissioners asked if
local legislators were
involved with checking into
the matter at the state level.
"The state is not going to
do anything until the heat is
put on them. I suggest that

and put some heat on this
agency to get our funding
out," said commissioner guy
Maxcy.
"We have limited money in
that account and the only
money we get is what Road
and Bride gives us," Stewart
said when questioned by the
public about the budget.
"This will make the asphalt
even more expensive, and
this will make the asphalt
even less attractive to make."
Helms attempted to take


the heat for the issue, volun-
teering that he had possibly
dropped the ball on inform-
ing both Wright and the com-
mission.
"This is something that I
should accept responsibility
for. I did not address this in
additional meetings with the
county administrator," Helms
said.
"I should have made the
county administrator more
aware of any issue like this,"
Helms added.


"No matter how much
some commissioners want
the asphalt plant to go away,
it ain't gonna happen. Tell
them we are mad as hell, and
we are not gonna take it any-
more," Maxcy directed
Helms in reference to the
local legislators.
"Fix it, and we would like
to be kept in the loop on
issues like this," Stewart
said.
Carlson and Stewart voted
no to the lease restructuring.

She was preparing sheets of
bees' wax that the children
would roll into candles.
Alongside her, Lauren
Barben was helping for her
second year and Sophia
Peavy for her third. Peavy,
who works at Riverside
Bank said a co-worker,
Claudia Bishop, volunteered
from the beginning and had
spoken so glowingly about
the event at work she decid-
ed to see for herself. Now
she's hooked.
Bill Ryems, working with
Barben and Peavey, is a win-
ter resident from Maryland.
This was his second year as
a volunteer and he came
south early just to be able to
take part.
Linda McCarthy, of Lykes
Brothers, volunteered at the
beef station, working with
Melissa Russell.
The children learned about
beef products and played
beef-o-bingo, using cards
with pictures of beef by-.
products and marking their
places with marshmallows.
Why marshmallows? They
are a beef by-product, as are
bandages, perfume, chewing
gum, bone china, photo-
graphic film, footballs,
candy, crayons and paint.

care that is comprehensive,"
Mesa said, "whether some-
one is referred by the court
for anger management, or in
need of a system of care for
substance abuse, or individ-
ual therapy, parenting classes
or a support group."
His goal is an all-encom-
passing approach, he said,
with wrap-around services.
He wants the center to
become a part of Highlands
County's health care commu-
nity, helping to coordinate
client treatment between
organizations and services.
Mesa said he and his staff
plan on becoming active.
"We need to reach out," he
said.
He hopes to open a senior
center that will provide more
than a social outlet, and in
the long term wants to create
an alternative to the Peace
River Center for those who
are Baker Acted locally.
Ledia Urbano, a licensed
clinical social worker, is
coming up from Miami to be
the clinical director.
A psychiatrist will come
up once a month from Miami,
also.
Mabel Castillo is serving
as another licensed clinical
social worker. She has
worked in Highlands County
for some time, and will be
doing the in-take evaluations,
determining immediate needs'
and setting goals.
Stan Schmidt directs the
center's psycho-social reha-
bilitation program. He will be
doing group work aimed at
improving living and social
skills, helping people to
develop self-esteem and
avoid crisis. Lunch will be
served with some programs.
Mesa said the building is
designed to support the work
being done in it.
There are white noise

DEP investigating

asbestos debris


Continued from 1A
bushes by the Boy Scout
Lodge on Eucalyptus.
An Aug. 12 e-mail from
County Administrator
Michael Wright to then-
employee Rick Solis, who
showed concerns about
asbestos exposure, showed
that the county was aware
of the ACM. Wright admit-
ted that the -county had
removed sections of the
pipe, but had decided that
there was not "an environ-
mental issue related to the
pipe removal or abandon-
ment."
According to another e-
mail from Wright to the
county commissioners,
improper ACM handling
has been going on since
2007.
Landers told the News-
Sun that "In response to
your question regarding
public health risk from
exposed asbestos, there are
risks associated with han-
dling asbestos-containing
materials; therefore, it is
imperative that proper han-
dling procedures and safety
precautions always be
taken when handling
asbestos to reduce/elimi-
nate public health risk ..."
It was unconfirmed if
ACM loads were deposited
at the Howerton Pit during
that time frame.
Several hundred loads of
"not so clean" fill material
were dumped in man-made
ponds at Howerton's from
the county's Road and

Supervisor Kyle Green
stated in a sworn deposition
that dumping at
Howerton's saved the
county money because of
"tipping" fees charged by
the county owned landfill.
Landfill Manager Ken
Wheeler was not aware of
tipping fees for county fill.
Receipts produced by
Wheeler show no record of
county asbestos dumping,
even though large, open
piles of the ACM were
found at the landfill by the
FDEP.
County and FDEP policy
state that the hazardous
material must be double
wrapped in special disposal
bags, recorded when
dumped, and that the FDEP
has to be notified before
the removal begins.
FDEP permit records do
not show any permits
issued to the county for the
removal of the asbestos
materials.
"Our department will be
working closely with the
county and the Sebring

cations are timely regard-

Sebring's Cody Watson tries to maneuver the ball out of the squeeze being put on
him by these two Bartow defenders in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Yellow Jackets at
Firemen's Field.


Jackets sting Streaks


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING - Seeking to
get his team into the com-
petitive fire, Sebring boys
soccer coach Tim Boulay
invited a slate of tough foes
for the Pre-Season Soccer
Classic at Firemen's Field,
including state
power Auburndale, Bar
Lakeland and |
Bartow - which pro- |
vided a 3-2 loss at
the hands, or feet, of
the Yellow Jackets
Monday night, but is
the sort of intent that
pays off down the road.
"Five of our first six
games in the regular season
are district games," Boulay
said before the game. "It's


tough to go right into dis-
trict to start the season, so
it's good to get that compe-
tition level up to be ready
for that."
In Monday night's open-
er, the, Bloodhounds got
past Lakeland in a 5-0
shutout before the Blue


Streaks squared off
with Bartow for the
first time in a while.
"We hadn't played
them in six years,"
Boulay said. "It's
always a good
match-up, very even,
with either us up one


rtow

3
ring

2


or down one."
It looked like they would
be down one early as, in
the sixth minute, Bartow
was on the attack and had


the ball inside the Sebring
goal box for some rapid-
fire shots at the net.
But the Blue Streak
defense was up to the chal-
lenge with defenders
deflecting the first two
attempts, goalkeeper Jesse
Ouverson knocking away a
third, before a fourth kick
was gotten under and sent
over the goal.
Four minutes later, it
was Sebring's turn with a
chance as Buck Schroeder
lined up for a direct free
kick from the top right of
the penalty box.
Buck's attempt bent, but
not quite enough, caroming
off the outside of the left
post.

The boos were expected,
but the timing of them was-
n't.
After all, it was the detest-
ed Minnesota Vikings, now
being lead by former Packer-
icon Brett Favre, playing
before the Green Bay faith-
ful.
So of course, once that
opening kick gets booted, I
expected nothing less than
booing the opposing team.
Actually, though, the boos
had started long before that,
pretty much as soon as the
Viking bus was spotted head-
ing toward Lambeau Field -
most of it directed at Favre
with certain words and hand
gestures - which I don't get.
As much as the media
probably overdoes it in gush-
ing over Favre, so too are.-
Packer fans way overdoing it
in their display of vitriol
toward the former face of the
franchise.
I mean, what did he do that
has so wronged the Packers?
In what way has anything


And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne
he done served to stab his
former fans in the back?
In recollection, after the
NFC Championship game
loss to the Giants, Favre
announced his retirement and
Green Bay was awash in tears
that the man, myth and leg-
end was hanging them up.
A little while later, after the
bitterness of the loss, the pain
of the season, had worn off,
Favre decided 'hey, I want to
give it another go.'
Upon being told of his
desire to take another crack at
it, head coach Mike

McCarthy and general man-
ager Ted Thompson essential-
ly said, 'sorry Brett, when
you retired, we began looking
ahead with Aaron as the quar-
terback from now on. I guess
you can come back, but we
really want to give Rodgers
the reins, so maybe it's best
you take a hike.'
To me, at that point, the tie
was cut, the choice was made
and that was the end of
Brett's playing days with the
Packers.
So I wonder, what did the
Green Bay fans expect him to
do?
He went to play a year in
New York, with mixed
results.
The season ended and he
decided, maybe now it's time
to retire, and said as much.
But there was an intriguing
team out there, in a familiar
setting, the northern Midwest.
A team in Minnesota that
seemed to have all the parts
needed to be a Super Bowl

The defenses held over the
next 12 minutes, but at the
32:07 mark, Bartow junior
midfielderJob Saucedo fired
one on an upward line that
somehow found the space
between Ouverson's out-
stretched hands and the bot-
tom of the cross bar to even
things up at 1-apiece - where
it would stay through the half.
Sebring seemed to regain
control in the second half,
-limiting the Jacket's opportu-
nities on their side of the field
and pressing for more scoring
chances.
At 55:02, the Streaks got


the ball into the goal box,
where it seemed to be deflect-
ed by the Bartow keeper.
But it wasn't controlled and
Sebring senior , Octavio
Galvan quickly got to it and
sent a quick rip into the net to
put the Blue Streaks back on
top.
They would hold the lead
for nearly 18 minutes, which
was seven minutes less than
needed, as Saucedo got behind
the Sebring defense for a one-
on-one that he won to even
things up at two.
Barely more than a minute
later, at 74:00, Carlos Giraldo
lined up for a direct free kick,
found the back corner of the
net and broke the tie.
Sebring would not have an
answer in the waning minutes,
but Boulay didn't seem overly
concerned afterward.
"I liked our movement off
the ball, but we need to work


just short
on our short passes," he said.
"We've got a core group of
players back from last year
who just need to be working
together more and there are
some new faces that we just
need to get in the fold."
Ouverson totaled 19 saves
on the night in goal, while
Schroeder added an assist and
three steals to his goal scored.
Troy Talbert, Cody Watson
and Isaias Chavez Aquino also
had three steals apiece for
Sebring.
The Blue Streaks faced
Lakeland Tuesday night in the
consolation game with Bartow
and Auburndale squaring off
in .the championship, before
Sebring welcomes Osceola
Tuesday, Nov. 10, to
Firemen's Field to open the
regular season.
See Friday's News-Sun for
the results of Tuesday night's
contest.

Packer faithful like jealous ex


Continued from 1B
contender, except a quarter-
back.
He knows he's only got a
year or two left, he knows he
can still play and wants
another shot at a title.
But instead of taking one
more shot with a team that
seemed ready-made for him
to join and help take the next
step, he's supposed to not
play anymore, or go play for
a team far, far away with no
chance at a Super Bowl, just
to appease Packer fans?
Isn't that kind of like that
demented ex boyfriend/girl-
friend - we're not together
anymore, but nobody else can
date you either, unless you
move 2,000 miles away
where I won't see it.
When I was a youngster,
my first football hero was
Walter Payton, same with my
older brother.
During a good portion of
his career, the Bears teams
Payton was on were truly
awful, with him being the
only real reason to watch.
But oh what a reason to
watch he was.
I remember at times, in
discussion with my brother,
wishing that the Bears would
trade him to a good team, just
so he could be with a winner.
We were Bears fans, sure,
but we were also such fans of
his, we wanted whatever
would work out best for him.
It's not an exact correla-
tion, but it is somewhat simi-
lar.


Payton was on our team,
and we hoped he'd get to
play with a really good team,
for his own sake.
Favre isn't on the Packers
anymore, they showed him
the door and have moved on
without him.
He then saw a chance to
play for a good team that he
can help contend for a Super
Bowl.
All the successful years he
had, bringing the Packers
back to glory, making Green
Bay relevant and beloved
again in the NFL, you'd think
he'd have built up an alle-
giance from enough fans that
would wish the best for him.
It's not like he had any
chance of coming back to the
Pack, and even if he did, he'd
be likely sitting behind
Rodgers, who has put himself
in the upper echelon of NFL


quarterbacks.
The Packer organization
waved good-bye to Brett, the
player, and are moving for-.
ward with a very good quar-
terback.
Favre has moved on and is
making his own way and tak-
ing another stab at a title.
When the Vikings come to
Green Bay, of course you
expect there to be booing of
the arch-rivals on the field -
even some off of it.
But I guess I was surprised
at the amount of hatred and
demonizing of the man who
did so much to lift up the
franchise and city, because I
don't quite get what he did to
deserve it.

.I5 Fiddler on the Roof takes
place in Tsarist Russia in
1905. The story depicts
the main character, Tevye,
Whose daughters, despite
tradition, each selects her
own husband. "If I Were
A Rich Man", "Sunrise,
Sunset" and "Matchmaker,
Matchmaker", are catchy
tunes that will play in your
head and your heart for days
after seeing this timeless
" Broadway . classic. The
beloved show is a must-see
for any lover of theatre, the
arts, and of course, a good
story about the strength
of a father's love for his
daughters.


OVER THE YEARS REVIEWERS HAVE SAID:
"One of the great works of the American musical theatre. It is darling, touching, beautiful, warm,
funny and inspiring. It is a work of art." -Daily News
"Filled with laughter and tenderness. It catches the essence of a moment in history with
sentiment and radiance. An exceptional accomplishment." -The New York Times

This spellbinding recreation of the wonderful world of Sholom Aleichem...is a joyous affirmation
that America is the world capital of musical comedy...seldom has any musical blended so
magically music and literature." -Cue

"Fiddler on the Roof is like your grandmothers house: a place to renew old values and get your
soul scrubbed out. If you're lucky enough to have it still, be wise enough to visit it often." -New
York Post

The Scope of Oriental Medicine
Oriental medicine includes acupuncture, Chinese herbology, dietary
therapy, exercise and bodywork based on traditional Oriental medicine
principles.
This system of health care is used extensively by one-quarter of the
world's population residing in Asia, and is rapidly growing in popularity
in the West.
Oriental medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the bio-
chemical model of Western medicine.


4�,


Acupuncture
Acupuncture is the 5000 year old Chinese system of natural
healing. Fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points of
the body to restore a balanced flow of energy.
Through acupuncture, Oi (energy) is allowed to move
freely throughout the body, reestablishing balance. This bal-
ance helps the body achieve higher levels of health and
well-being.
Chinese Herbs
For as long as people and plants have coexisted, herbal med-
icine has been around in some shape or form. It has been
found to very helpful in treating conditions such as allergies,
* ADD and ADHD, menopausal syndrome, chronic pain and
S many, many other ailments.

auction raises

$450 for children


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - The

Auxiliary had a fantastic
day raising money for chil-
dren in need of a helping
hand.
"We have always held
children near and dear to us,
especially the ones at
Hansen House where we
have done a lot of work and
giving over the years," said
Darlene Watkin, Auxiliary
President. "We firmly
believe that you never stand
taller than when you stoop
to help a child."
The Legion surely proved


that with their Brown Bag
Auction they held Oct. 23
while serving up their deli-
cious Friday night pizza.
For the auction, the ladies
put something of value they
wish to donate into a paper
bag and seal it, then Post
members bid against each
other. Watkin and First Vice
Mary Striecker couldn't
believe the generosity of the
people present with big bids
going for the items. Bev
LeBeck's famous apple pie
went for an all-time high of
$35 as she sat there with a
smile on her face.
Thanks to a surprise dona-

Highlands County Republicans hear about Hometown Democracy, health care reform


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - At their regular monthly
.meeting at Inn on the Lakes in Sebring, the
Highlands County Republicans received a
presentation by Allison Megrath and Alexis
:Crespo of Land Planning Solution on
Hometown Democracy, an initiative that will
;be on the ballot in 2010.
Currently, every county in Florida has a
:Comprehensive Plan for development, which
designates the use for each plot of land.
Requests for changes can be made by individ-
uals or local governments. Currently, any
changes in this plan can occur only after a
lengthy and expensive process, which
involves substantial documentation, approval
by local and state agencies, open meetings at
which residents can voice objections, and a
vote by the Board of County Commissioners.


The process takes 18 months to two years
and can cost more than $40,000.
The goal is to prevent uncontrolled devel-
opment. The proposed Hometown Democracy
amendment would add another layer to this
process, requiring that every change in the
Comprehensive Plan be submitted to the vot-
ers of the county for approval at the next elec-
tion.
In the last year with the downturn in the
economy, 48 changes to the Comprehensive
Plan were submitted. In other years, there
have been as many as 200. If Hometown
Democracy were approved, the ballot for
Highlands County voters would have to
include a description and place to register
approval or disapproval for each one.
Before the County Commissions approve a
change in the plan, they are given a long com-


prehensive report on all aspects of the request
and the public is allowed to come and voice
their concerns. The public would not have
easy access to that material and could be sub-
jected to advertising campaigns distorting the
impact of changes. Since the whole county
would have to approve the change, the local
residents would actually have less influence
in the process.
Although Megrath and Crespo took no
position on the amendment, the general con-
sensus of the room was that while the inten-
tions of those proposing this change might be
good, it's adoption would lead to confusion
and unintended consequences.
In addition to the discussion of Hometown
Democracy, there was also a presentation on
the constitutionality of current proposals for
health care reform. Earl Claire reviewed the


relevant parts of the constitutions and the
arguments pro and con.
He pointed out a fundamental constitution-
al principle: "The individual can do anything
but that which is forbidden by law, while the
state may do nothing but that which is author-
ized by law." He pointed out that constitu-
tional scholars, such as Judge Andrew
Napolitano, have argued that the government
has no right under the Constitution to force
citizens to purchase health insurance or take
over the health care industry.
The next meeting of the Highlands County
Republicans will be held at Inn on the Lakes
at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 19. An option-
al bistro dinner will begin at 5:30. Ben
Albritton, candidate for State Representative
for District 66 will be the speaker.

The group sang "Mark
Another Loss For Me" and
then the program was pre-
sented by Bernice Lambert.
Her title was "Keep Your
,Memory Sharp" and the
theme of the program was
that our memories do not
have to become less reliable
as we age. She gave us sev-
eral good pointers. The first
one is to "nourish our noo-
dle" and we can do that in
several ways. Eating com-
plex carbohydrates can help,
getting to bed earlier is an
important tool, and you
should cut back on nicotine,
caffeine and alcohol. Save
room for new memories by
limiting sweets and stress
and also take a B-50 vitamin
daily. Doing puzzles, work-
ing crosswords or Sudoku,
reading and exercise also
boosts memory.
Jean Ottoway called the
roll with 37 members pres-
ent. This was an excellent
week for weight loss and the
Best Loser of the week was
Theresa Rhodes. Yes-yeses
for the coming week are
spinach two times, baked or

Helen Oberchain and Bob
Hummel of Highlands
County Audubon Chapter
were part of the annual
Audubon Assembly held in
St. Petersburg Oct. 23-24.
Attended by Audubon
members from the
Panhandle to the Keys, the
event featured seminars and
workshops of interest to
- Oberchain- - -Gil-lis - and
Hummel, who attended dif-
ferent panel discussions
and reported back to the
local chapter meeting Oct.
27.
'the three agree that the
dialog session on climate
change was the most popu-
lar and drew the largest
number of interested mem-
bers. According to Gordon
Hamilton, research associ-
ate professor at the Climate
Change Institute of the
University of Maine, the
glaciers in Iceland are melt-
ing at a much faster pace
than previously recorded
which could possibly result
in a one meter (39 inches)
rise of ocean levels before
the century ends.
If this prediction proves
true, then it presents a com-
plex problem for Florida's
flora and fauna. Animals
would naturally move
inland along with the popu-
lace. Plant life on coastal
areas would be compro-
mised or destroyed creating
a problem for migrating
birds and food for wildlife.
Keynote speaker Sylvia
Earle, a world-renowned
oceanographer and named
living legend by the Library
of Congress, highlighted
the weekend with a sober-
ing report on the plight of
the ocean's fishes and reefs.
Stating that man does have
the power and knowledge
to create a better working
relationship with the
ocean's inhabitants, she
cited one study where a par-
ticular damaged reef was
left undisturbed. In time,
the reef rebounded and
returned healthy as if it
never had been invaded by
divers and fishermen.
Earle emphasized that all
can be turned around and
corrected using the
resilience of natural sys-
tems. According to Earle,
the ocean's inhabitants are
now at the pinnacle point
where our feathered friends
were in the early 20th cen-
tury when Audubon formed
the Society and began edu-
cating the public of the dan-
gerous waste of the bird
populace. Earle suggests
that we might have to copy
the path of Audubon and do
for the fish what Audubon
has done for the birds. In
the meantime, however, she
stated that she no longer
includes fish in -her diet.
The Audubon Chapter of
Highlands County meets
the fourth Tuesday each
month at the Masonic
Lodge on the corner of


Casey Trent


Main Avenue and Park
Street Lake Placid. The
public is invited to bring
utensils and a covered dish
to share and join at 6:30
p.m. for supper then stay to
hear a speaker beginning at
7:30 p.m., or arrive in time
for the speaker and ques-
tion-and-answer session.
This month, the group
welcomed Casey Trent,
field coordinator for the
Riverwoods Field
Laboratory, who reported
on her camp experience at
Camp Oty-Okwa in Ohio.
The Highlands County
Audubon Chapter selects a
teacher a year to sponsor
for a Week's camping expe-
rience as part of Audubon's
Adventure Program, which
provides newsletters, edu-
cational and conservation
materials to students in
Highlands County. Trent
presented to Audubon
members an exciting pres-
entation of her week in
Camp Oty-Okwa.


Community supports Shriners Hospitals


Special to the News-Sun
The Highlands Shrine
Club's fundraising drive for
their children's hospitals is a
success, according to local
hospital chairman Harry
Lister.
Lister said the drive has
been a combination of contri-
butions from local businesses
and from individuals in the
community.
The local Shriners Club is
nearing the end of the
fundraising campaign.
Shriners can be found on
weekends . throughout
Highlands County at such
places as Publix, Winn Dixie
and other business establish-
ments.
Walmart kicked off the
campaign for the Shriners
with a $1,000 check. All of
the money collected .during
this drive goes directly to the
hospital, Lister said,
The Shriners own and
operate 22 hospitals through-
out the country. The hospitals
treat orthopedic patients,
burn clients and have recent-
ly began treating cleft lip and,
palate repair.
The hospitals have been
doing this since 1922. All
children under the age of 18
are treated without cost.
Some children literally grow
up in Shriners .hospitals with
their many visits and some-
times long stays.
There are some 70-plus
children from Highlands
County currently in or just
completing care of the

Shriners hospitals.
Local Shriners take chil-
dren and their parents from
Highlands County to the
Children's orthopedic in
Tampa after treatment.
Recently, Shriner Ross
Canright made a total of six
trips to Tampa to either carry
children or pick up patients at
the hospital. -
Since 1960, more than
50,000 children have been


treated at the three burn cen-
ters operated by the Shriners.
There is never a charge for
any patient regardless of the
financial status of the par-
ents. They do not even take
insurance payments. The cost
of more than a million dollars
a day to operate the hospitals
is paid by the Shriners-.
In addition to the operating
cost for the hospitals the
Shriners spend nearly as


much on Research, especially
for burn patients.
Here in Highlands County.
burn patients are immediately
transported by air to the burn
hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Others are taken to the hospi-
tal in Tampa. All of this is
done at no expense to the
family. If anyone knows of a
child that can be helped, call
(800) 237-5055 and help will
be on the way.
