Adelt gets passing marks on evaluation


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK - City Manager
Sarah Adelt's first evaluation has
been submitted by the members of the
city council. Each supplied his or her
own appraisal, all using the same for-
mat.
Performance ratings were quanti-
fied with a number system - 90
points being divided into five levels,
each with a range from which to
chose.


Within the exceptional range, an
individual's work is found to be con-
sistently and significantly surpassing
all reasonable expectations.
Within the good range, an individ-
ual's work is found to be often sur-
passing expectations.
Within the satisfactory range, the
individual achieves reasonable
expectations; in the fair range, mini-
mum expectations; and in the unsatis-
factory category, fails to meet expec-
tations.


Adelt received only three unsatis-
factory marks, all from Deputy
Mayor Brenda Gray.
Gray felt Adelt had not been suffi-
ciently open and accessible to the cit-
izens of Avon Park, had not respond-
ed with timely and accurate informa-
tion to questions from citizens and
the media, and had been unwilling to
make difficult or unpopular decisions
when necessary.
The other city council members
rated her much higher in those cate-


gories, with George Hall giving her a
perfect score.
Over all, Gray and AlJoe Hinson
gave Adelt fair marks, Joe Wright and
Mayor Sharon Schuler gave her good
marks, and George Hall gave her
exceptional marks.
In his comments Hall wrote, "Since
the current direction of the council is
to over scrutinize and second-guess
every leadership decision, it may be
helpful if the manager communicated

Building the country out of a depression Bilions of


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID -- In
1939, when he was 15 years
old, Norman Welch's parents
lied about his age so he could
join the Civilian
Conservation Corps.
The corps required its
inductees to be between 18
and 25 years old.
But the Great Depression
still affected the economy,
and Welch's family did not
have the money to keep him
in school. He was in the
ninth grade at the time and
living in Hollywood, Fla.
were he was born.
Joining the CCC had not
been his parents' idea. A
friend planned on joining,
and talked Welch into joining
with him.
His parents agreed because
he would be working,. not
hanging out on the street;
safe, housed and fed. He
would also earn $30 a month,
$25 of which was sent direct-
ly to the family.
The boys went down to
Miami, Welch said, passed a
simple physical and signed
on for the obligatory six
months. Weighing only 112
pounds, Welch was quickly
nick-named Pee-Wee.
He was sent down to the
Keys, to a camp on
Summerland Key.
Almost everything was
provided for the young men,
who lived in cabins sleeping
five men each. Everyone ate
in a central mess hall. Welch
remembers the food was
good, occasionally augment-
ed by fish, lobsters or conch
the men caught themselves

Norman Welch served nine months in the Civilian Conservation Corps, from September of
1939 until June of 1940. He worked if the lower Keys, helping eradicate mosquitoes and

right out their back doors.
They didn't wear uniforms
but were issued denims that
were so stiff the men tied
lengths of rope to a belt loop
and dropped the pants over
seawalls to soak in the ocean
for three or four days.
Without softening the jeans
like that, Welch said, wearing
them in the heat caused a ter-
rible rash.
As with all CCC camps,
the overall administrator was
an army officer, but a civilian
supervised the men, who typ-
ically worked from 8 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. five days a week.
Saturday they were pro-
vided with transportation


down to Key West for time-
off. But, because they only
received a $5 spending
allowance each month, the
men often didn't have money
for extras or entertainment.
Instead, Welch remembers
sitting on the sea wall of the
La 'Concha Hotel with his
friends watching young
women walk by.
Years later, when Welch
met his second wife Virginia
- his first wife passed away
- he discovered that she had
grown up in Key West, and
while she had left by the time
he arrived, she remembers
walking down to the same
hotel with her friends, check-


ing out the CCC boys from
the safety of across the street.
Key West was much small-
er then, Welch said, and U.S.
1 was a narrow, winding,
two-lane road.
He said that the men pri-
marily worked at mosquito
control.
"You've heard the expres-
sion, 'You couldn't see out of
the window for all the mos-
quitoes'?" he asked. "Well,
we couldn't see out the win-
dows, the mosquitoes were so
bad.
"We needed net covering
for our heads, wore gloves

SEBRING - Franklin
Delano Roosevelt took the
oath of office on March 4,
1933. The country was in the
grips of a deep depression,
one that affected the world
economy, not just that of the
United States.
Roosevelt had run on a
platform that promised a
"New Deal," and he began to
make good on that promise
from his first moments in the
White House.
Under his leadership, by
March 31, Congress passed
the Emergency Conservation
Work Act, legislation that
created jobs and laid the
foundation for the Civilian
Conservation Corps. The first
CCC enrollee was inducted
that day.
The CCC was designed to
get young men off the street,
provide them with work and
training while preserving the
nation's natural resources.
Called "Roosevelt's Tree
Army," the CCC enrollment
peaked in 1935 with 500,000
men working in 2,600 camps
located in every state plus
Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto
Rico.
During its existence,
between 1933 and 1941,
more than 3,000,000 men
served in it.
In that time those men

Eight move on to Heartland Idol finals


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - The competition was stiff as
Heartland Idol contestants were trimmed
down to eight finalists last Thursday on the
Circle in downtown Sebring.
Based on the filled areas of the Circle, and
emcee Don Elwell's estimate, more than 500
filled downtown for a night of entertainment
by the 12 contestants that carried over from
last year.
Founder Diana Walker stole the limelight
for about 30 minutes when she fainted and
had to be taken to the hospital during the first
performance of the show.
Walker was reportedly suffering from a
stomach virus and fatigue finally caught up
with her.
According to Heartland judge Vickie Jones,
Walker was home and resting as per doctor's
orders by Friday.
When the show resumed, it was clear that
the judging for this year's event was getting


harder, and not easier, by the display of talent'
exhibited over the three hours of performanc-
es.
Even the usually critical eye of the most
hated judge in the Heartland, Jim McCollum,
was struggling to find fault.
"I am never ceased to be amazed by the tal-
ent in the Heartland," McCollum said.
"This entire group could have moved on,"
McCollum commented near the end of the
event.
"I have judged this for all six years, and
you are all phenomenal. This is a very diffi-
cult year," Jones said at one point during the
performances.
According to Elwell, just one point separat-
ed the eighth from the ninth place during the
selection.
Jarred Gravley with "Wake Up Little
Susie" and Mark Brignoni's "Johnny B.
Goode" vaulted two of the three men compet-

Volunteers line up

for LP Bicycle Rodeo


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - The
fourth annual Lake Placid
Police Department Bicycle
Rodeo is shaping up to be a
community-wide event
stressing fun and prizes as
well as safety awareness for
young riders. All features of
the rodeo are scheduled to
run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Saturday, Nov. 14 in front
of the Lake Placid Police
Department, and are free.
Pre-registration forms for
rodeo participants are avail-
able in the lobby of the
police department at 8 N.
Oak Ave. Volunteers will
also accept on-site registra-
tions starting at 8:30 a.m.
on the day of the event.
The purpose of the rodeo
is to teach young riders
basic bicycle safety rules
and traffic awareness, and
to demonstrate to them and
their parents their readiness
for the road.
Participants don't even
need to own a bike: The
Florida Traffic and Bicycle
Safety Education Program
has donated to the police
department a trailer loaded
with 30 bicycles for use as
loaners.
Organizers say the event
has been attracting volun-
teers and donations, which
promise to make this year's
event bigger and better than
previous ones. Additional
sponsors and participants
include:
* Walgreens, which is
not only providing addition-
al prizes but is also staging
a flu shot station.
Walgreens will accept pri-
vate insurances, Medicare
and Medicare insurance, or
will also offer shots for the
uninsured for $18.
* The Lake Placid
Volunteer Fire Department
will be on hand displaying
the town's new ladder truck.
The Lake Placid Recreation
Department is assisting
with materials and man-
power.
* Volunteers represent-
ing the Highlands Pedalers


bicycle club will perform
safety inspections on partic-
ipants' bicycles, and be rec-
ommending repairs to main-
tenance problems.
* Radio station WWOJ
will be broadcasting live
from the - event, giving
young participants a chance
to see how a radio station
operates from a remote
location.
* Trained volunteers
will be on hand to cinch up
and adjust those puzzling
buckles and straps on bicy-
cle helmets, so the fit will
help the helmets do their
job in the case of a fall.
Helmets will also be avail-
able for participants who do
not own one.
* Additional bicycle
giveaways will be available,
thanks to Sarita Taylor,
bicycle and pedestrian coor-
dinator at the Bartow dis-
trict office of the Florida'
Department of
Transportation.
* Throughout the event,
prizes donated by local
businesses will be given
away, including a child's
and an adult's bicycle,
donated by Walmart.
* Also free for partici-
pants and their families will
be hot dogs, chips and
drinks, all donated by area
business and cooked to per-
fection by a crew of volun-
teers.
Additional donations of
material are welcome. To
donate, call LPPD Reserve
Officer Warren Wolfe at
441-1645.
Spanish-speaking volun-
teers and officers from the
Lake Placid Police
Department will be on hand
to assist families with any
language difficulties.
All rodeo participants
who complete the six safety
course will be awarded a
certificate as well as special
prizes.
For further information
about the event itself, con-
tact LPPD Officers Bonnie
Pruitt or Heather Mulligan
at 699-3759.

Drawing art back into schools


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuiffley@newssun.com
SEBRIING -Concerned because art pro-
grams in almost all the elementary schools
have been cut due to budget shortfalls, a
group of volunteers has been working to
bring art back into the classroom.
Patsy Cross, one of the organizers of the
program, said it has been made possible by
a blend of private money and public sup-
port, with the funding coming from spon-
sors like Alan Jay Automotive Network and
Bill Jarrett Ford.
Cross said 330 classroom kits have been
put together, one for every elementary
school teacher.
"Art has got to get into schools," Cross
said. "Studies have shown it helps students
do better on the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test."
Cross added that the organizers are well
aware how busy teachers are. That is why
the kit is designed to make art projects as
easy as possible for them.
Each kit contains six separate projects,
scheduled to be handed out once a month.
All are based on a patriotic theme.
Some of the assignments are simple col-
oring, others require some line drawing,
while one even ties in math exercises. There
are enough copies of each project so the
teacher can simply pull them out and dis-


tribute them to the class without having to
run to a copier.
When the class is done, the teacher only
has to collect the work and file it into the
kit.
Completed work returns to the organizing
committee, which will select at random
examples of elementary student work to be
put on display at South Florida Community
College on May 1 as part of a day dedicated
to the arts. In addition to the student art-
work, there will be drama, music and dance
performances.
At the middle and high school level, stu-
dent work will be juried. There will be one
winner from each school.
Plans are under way to have a special
show of middle school work displayed at
the capital in Tallahassee, and sponsors are
making it possible for the four winners,
with a chaperone apiece, to travel to
Tallahassee and see the display.
At the high school level, the three win-
ners, also with a chaperone apiece, will
have their work displayed in Washington
D.C., and also will get to travel to see it in
person.
Prize money is being raised to reward the
three schools with the most participation,
and prizes are being arranged for teachers
as well.

EDITORIAL & OPINION


TODAY'S EDITORIAL

Management concurs, there are

no consequences for graft


If you break the law, then there have to
be consequences, otherwise, there is no
reason to obey the law.


"Obedience of the law is
demanded; not asked as a
favor," Theodore Roosevelt
said. -
Everyone agrees to that
basic statement in a civilized
society with few exceptions.
Speeding to get someone to
the hospital, for instance, can
be excused. You .are still
breaking the law, but there is a
really good reason.
Yes, it is clear that some
laws are not just, and yes,
some are really an inconven-
ience, but the average citizen,
overall, believes in order and
law.
Apparently, Highlands
'County does not concur with
that fundamental concept of
civilized society.
With no, consequences it
appears.
Over the past few years in
Highlands County we have
seen gas theft, "misuse of cell
phones, the giving away of
$113,000 in county property,


overpayment of county ven-
dors, a boondoggle called an
asphalt plant, a hazardous
diesel fuel spill of between 25
to 5,000 gallons, (depending
on who you ask), non-compli-
ance with federal regulations,
an actual sheriff's report of
17,466 gallons of missing fuel
that we are told is not really
missing, asbestos crushed and
thrown on the grass all along
the Sebring Parkway with no
health and safety precautions
and no notice to the right
authorities when handling haz-
ardous materials, as well as
public officials ignoring laws
about open government.
Now the latest shows
$150,000 illegally used to
build the new softball com-
plex.
All pointed out by the coun-
ty's own audits done by the
county clerk.
The county's answer to each
and everyone of these audit
findings?


"Management concurs."
Yep, that's the whole of it,
management concurs.
Based on the actions of the
county leadership, the unwrit-
ten policy is "It's OK, we
know you misused taxpayer
money, the audit shows that
you misused taxpayer money,
management concurs that you
misused taxpayer money, but
now that we found it, it's OK."
No one is fired, no one is
prosecuted, there are no conse-
quences, just "management
concurs."
That's like the cop watching
the thief and stating, "Yep, he
stole your money," but doing
nothing about it. ,
That's what clerk audits are
for, partially, to discover
where there is abuse and possi-
ble government graft.'
The other half is for county
leadership to enact conse-
quences upon those responsi-
ble for the waste and the graft.
But apparently, just pointing
out the problem is enough for
the leadership in Highlands
County.
You steal $150,000 from a

Home Care Month
recognized in
November
Editor:
When you are sick, where
would you rather be treat-
ed? Bets are you would pre-
fer the security and comfort
of your own bed in your
own home. More than 11
million Americans agree
with you, which is why
Florida Home Health is cel-
ebrating National Home
Care Month this November.
Why do we celebrate?
More than just providing
excellent care where and
when patients need and
want it, home care saves the
United States and commer-
cial health insurers billions
of health care dollars each
year. There is no more cost-
effective provider of health
care in our country.
When your mother,
father, sister, brother and
neighbor are struggling with
a disability, dealing with a
chronic or terminal illness,
or recovering from a recent
hospital stay, home care
professional caregivers have
the answer. Modern home
care has all the bell and
whistles of hospital care,
with the exception of sur-
gery. Today, patients can
receive everything from
chemotherapy to shampoos.
Home care providers work
diligently to keep
Americans in their homes,
where they belong.
It is tragic that 47 million
Americans are uninsured
and the current crop of
long-term care policies are
insignificant compared with
the need, particularly when
most of these policies will


TODAY'S LETTERS
pay some minimal amount
toward nursing home care
and less for home care, if
they cover it at all.
As the 21st century con-
tinues to unfold, the funda-
mental domestic issue
becomes obvious: How will
we provide high quality
long-term care to our par-
ents and eventually for our-
selves? The answer is home
care and hospice, which
combines care, compassion
and cost effectiveness.
As we prepare for
Thanksgiving and recall our
many gifts, please remem-
ber the home care and hos-
pice professionals who
make a difference every day
for our nation's seniors, dis-
abled, and infirm. They
make it possible for home
care to be where the healing
begins.

the barrel of a gun. And we

Anita Dunn handles com-
munications, research and

Mrs. Dunn gave a speech at

said, "Mao Tse Tung and
Mother Teresa not often

the two people that I turn to

Another year,

It is finally November. There
are many things that people
associate with November, such
as Thanksgiving, being bom-
barded with ads for Christmas
shopping, and (hopefully) day-
time temperatures that don't
climb into the upper 80s.
For me and a number of oth-
ers like me, November means
it's time for another whack at
National Novel Writing Month,
also known as "A Surefire Way
To Significantly Increase Your
Chances of Getting Carpal
Tunnel Syndrome."
For those who don't remem-
ber my past explanations of this
idea, here's a quick explana-
tion. National Novel Writing
Month (or "Nano" for short) is
an experience where partici-
pants vow to write 50,000 new
words of fiction in the month of
November. That's not a typo.
That's a five with four zeros
after it.
How much is 50,000? Well,
my column runs around 600
words, give or take a few here
or there. If I wrote about 83 1/3
columns in the month of
November, that would come to
about 50,000 words.
Yeah. That's a lot of words.
And to count under the rules
of Nano, it has to be i novel
(which is defined as 'a lengthy
piece of work,' which opens it
up for all kinds of interesting
interpretations); you have to
start it during Nano, and you
can't simply write one word
50,000 times.
Of course you can try to be
clever with it - some people
quote reams of the Bible or
other things to pad the word
count. Or they forgo the use of
contractions. Or they take five
pages to describe a room in
excruciating detail.
I'm not saying any of those
things are bad things to do - I
just don't do them.
What I do - what I've done
ever since I first heard of and
entered the madness, that is
Nano in 2004 - is sit down and
start to write a book. Maybe
I've done some planning
'beforehand (which is fine under
the rules) but on Nov. 1 (or
whenever I get started) I start
by writing "Chapter One."
After that, it's anyone's guess
where the book (or I) will end
up at midnight on Nov. 30.
It is a form of self-torture. I
sit at my laptop (there is no
way I would try to write out
50,000 words by hand and I
admire those of you who do)
and I attempt to create some-
thing from nothing. I type fast,
because there is no way I'm
going to get 50,000 words
crammed into 30 days unless I
do. I gulp down coffee by the
gallon and consider asking Don
to set me up with an IV of the
stuff. And I try to ignore that
little voice in my head that
whispers I'm writing garbage.
And then there's the stress of
falling behind. I honestly can't
recall a time when I didn't fall
behind during Nano. And I
saved myself some anticipation
over it by falling behind right
at the beginning. As I type this
column, I've only written a
third of the words I need to be
on track for that magical
50,000.
To be honest, I seriously con-
sidered skipping Nano. I am no
stranger to stress; in fact, stress
seems to have moved into my
house and taken over parts of
my life.
But ... you see, I was look-
irig over some notes I made
about a book I wanted to write
someday. And I got excited
about it. It felt like it would be

Communist policies are now collective-
ly known as Maoism. Maoism is an
attempt to combine Confucianism and
Socialism, closer to Communism than
Capitalism.
Prior to being picked by Obama,
Mark Lloyd, (FCC) Federal
Communication Commission's chief
diversity (Czar), was a senior fellow at
the George Soros-funded Center for
American Progress, for whom he co-
wrote a June 2007 report titled "The
Structural Imbalance of Political Talk
Radio." In 2006 he wrote the book
"Prologue to a Farce: Communications
and Democracy in America."
Lloyd wrote: "It should be clear by
now that my focus here is not freedom
of speech or the press ... This freedom
is all too often an exaggeration ... At
the very least, blind references to free-
dom of speech or the press serve as a
distraction from the critical examina-
tion of other communications policies.
The purpose of free speech is warped
to protect global corporations and block
rules that would promote democratic
governance."
In front of a microphone at the May
2005 Conference on Media Reform he
said, "Unless we are conscious of the
need to have more people of color,
gays, other people in those positions
we will not change the problem. We're
in a position where you have to say
who is going to step down so someone
else can have power."
This is a man now implementing pol-
icy at the FCC that will govern free-
dom of speech.
In 1977 current-Director of the
White House Office of Science &
Technology (Czar) John Holdren co-
authored a book, "Ecoscience -
Population, Resources, Environment."
The book contains his beliefs of how
women could be forced to abort their
pregnancies, whether they wanted to or
not. The population at large could be
sterilized by infertility drugs intention-
ally put into the nation's drinking water
or in food. Single mothers and teen
mothers should have their babies-seized
from them against their will and given
away to other couples to raise. People
who "contribute to social deterioration,
(i.e. undesirables) can be required by
law to exercise reproductive responsi-
bility, in other words, be compelled to

Hospice can help in time of
need
Editor:
Highlands and Hardee counties can
be thankful for many blessings. We live
in a beautiful area of the country with
friendly residents who value the many
opportunities that this wonderful com-
munity offers. But as we go about our
daily routines, some of our friends, our
neighbors, and our loved ones are in a
vulnerable place confronting a frighten-
ing scenario - they have received a ter-
minal diagnosis.


But fortunately, we again are blessed
to have compassionate hospice care
available in Highlands and Hardee
counties with dedicated caregivers who
are ready to help.
November is National Hospice
Month - a time to reflect on the types
of care accessible when comfort meas-
ures are now a desired plan of care.
While thinking about end-of-life care
can be overwhelming, not thinking
about it can lead to unnecessary pain
and unwanted suffering.
Being on the Good Shepherd
Hospice board of directors has given
me tremendous insight into the special-
ized, patient-centered care that hos-
pices provide. Many people are
unaware that hospice care addresses
the physical, emotional, social and
spiritual challenges that can go hand
and hand with end-of-life issues. With
professional healthcare staff and
trained volunteers providing a circle of
support, patients and their loved ones
can focus on making the most of the
time they have remaining together.
I know that a terminal diagnosis is
crushing. But I encourage you to con-
tact hospice as soon as possible if you
or a loved one are in this place. You
will come to find out that with hospice
care, you can start to worry less and
live more.

National Hospice Month

celebrates love and care


During November,
National Hospice Month,
we at Hope reach out to the
community to raise aware-
ness about how we can help
people coping with life-
limiting illness, enabling
them to live in comfort and
with dignity.
In providing our special
care, we know that one of
the most important attrib-
utes of a good caregiver is
listening skills.
Attentiveness and effective
listening help to determine
the quality of care that the
patient will receive. At
Hope, listening is consid-
ered to be an act of love as
well as a required skill.
People in need of hos-
pice care may not always
realize how their quality of
life can be improved,
beyond pain and symptom
management. They may be
reluctant to talk about the
"little things" that could
make it easier to get around
the house, such as a home
improvement. Members of
our Hope Care Team listen
and observe, always in
search of answers to the
question, "What more-can
we do to help?"
We meet special needs
through our Hopeful
Wishes program. When a
person in hospice care
needs something "extra" to
add to their quality of life,
we work to fulfill their
wish.
A woman in our care had
been helping her daughter
prepare to get married.
However, as wedding time
drew near, the woman
became so ill that she could
not leave our hospice
house. Her Hope care team
fulfilled a wish by arrang-
ing a wedding for her
daughter in our own chapel.
The mother's bed was

brought in, and the daugh-
ter was married at bedside
in a ceremony led by our
chaplain. A local grocery
store helped with the wed-
ding and provided the cake.
It was a precious
moment for everyone, as a
Hopeful Wish was fulfilled
in a beautiful way.
Some Hopeful Wishes
are sweet and simple, such
as the aging couple who
simply wanted a "date
night" at their favorite
restaurant. With the help of
the restaurant, we made it
happen.
Quality of life involves
much more than medical
care. Emotional and spiritu-
al needs must also be met.
The "whole person" must
be served. The mission of
Hope is to provide excep-
tional care and support to
every individual and their
loved ones as they fulfill
life's journey.
During National Hospice
Month, we celebrate the
love and care we provide in
support of our mission. We
know, and strive to help
others understand, that hos-
pice is really about living.
As we observe National
Hospice Month, I encour-
age you to learn more about
how we help the people in
our community, and how
you can help Hope, by vis-
iting our Web site at
www.hopehospice.org or by'
calling Hope at (239) 482-
4673 or (800) 835-1673.

Samira K. Beckwith is

Rusty Straub, a photography
instructor at South Florida

loved the CCC. He weighed 120
pounds when he joined and left
six months later weighing 140
pounds. The men called the

long hair and insisted they eat
until full. Athanasas worked as
an ax man in up-state New
York. 'I was as solid as a rock,'
he remembered with a smile.
One of the big points of interest
during the CCC Festival was a
display of vintage automobiles,
trucks and tractors (right).
Most of the machines dated
from the 1930s, some earlier. All
would have been on the road at
the time the CCC was providing

Adelt gets passing

marks on evaluation


Continued from page 1A

regularly with a daily report
or weekly summary of
events. This MAY (sic) help
council get a feel for the day-
to-day responsibilities of the
manager position. It is my
opinion that too many current
council members have no
managerial experience and/or
leadership skills, therefore
they are foreign to the day-
to-day of a manager."
Wright echoed the com-
ment. He wrote, "Sarah did
an admirable job under very
trying circumstances. The
budget drove most other
issues. In my view public
criticism by other council
members was unwarranted.
As a business owner and
industry leader, I know first-
hand how challenging leader-
ship is at times like this. It is
easy to criticize. It is
extremely difficult to offer
solutions that are positive
and practical."
Both Hall and Wright are
finishing out their terms after
choosing not to run for re-
election. Hall had announced
when he first ran for office he
would self-impose a two-
term limit on himself.
Gray was the only current
council member up for re-
election. She will begin her
third term- in office in
January.
Of the two council mem-
bers who were more critical
of Adelt's performance,
Hinson wrote of her, "There
are times I feel council was
not given enough information
to make sound decisions. I
feel the morale of our city
employees is low, and other
government agencies and
entities have lost confidence
in our city. Nothing has been


improved in service to citi-
zens (in order) to cut costs."
In response to Hinson's
comment regarding service
to citizens, Adelt responded,
"We have been able to pro-
vide the same services to our
community on a smaller
budget for the past two fiscal
years that I have been
involved. Many cities have
had to cut services or
employees, or both."
The city, however, has cut
services. It no longer pro-
vides free police protection
during parades or special
events, has cut back the
hours at the city hall payment
window and provides fewer
garbage pick-ups.
While no employees have
been laid off yet, the possi-
bility still exists because of
lower tax revenues in the
new fiscal year.
In fact, Adelt had planned
on cutting staff. The only
reason workers weren't laid-
off, or had their hours cut,
was because intense resist-
ance to the idea, including
council resistance, made
Adelt and finance director
Renee Green adjust the
budget differently.
Asked Friday for her over-
all reaction to the evaluation,
Adelt was pleased, despite
the difficulties facing city
managers at this time.
"I think with the good
evaluation I'm more than
happy to do the job," she
said. "I think performance
evaluations are good tools.
They open up lines of com-
munication that may not be
there otherwise."
City council members did
not discuss their evaluations
publically at the last regular
meeting, although Adelt's
performance review was on


Eight move on to Heartland Idol finals


Continued from page 1A
ing into the final round, but
the other contestants moving
on were wearing poodle
skirts and saddle shoes.
Tiffany Elliott's passion-
ate rendition of "Only You"
and Shannon Marrero's elec-
tric "Jailhouse Rock" moved
them into the finals, and
Amanda Mercer with Doris
Day's song "Secret Love"
earned her a spot in the top
eight as well.
"Bye-Bye Love" sung by
Julia Newell, who also
recorded her own back-
ground vocals for the per-
formance, earned her a seat,
but it was the smooth, smoky
voice of Julie Temple's
"Unforgettable" that earned
praise from judges.
"That is my favorite song,
and you nailed it!"
exclaimed Sebring's Mayor
George Hensley after
Temple's rendition of Nat
King Cole's classic.


People's Choice for the
evening Amy McCoy took
the last spot with "If I Knew
You Were Coming, I Would
Have Baked a Cake," which
held the top spot on the
charts for 13 weeks in 1950,
according to McCoy.
McCoy's platinum wig
and June Cleaver appear-
ance, complete with white
gloves, set the stage for her
performance.
And handing out cupcakes
to the judges seemed to be
the icing that capped her
selection for the finals.
"I don't have a spot here
on my score sheet for cup-
cakes, but your performance
not only entertained, it actu-
ally took us back to the
'50s," Idol judge Mike
Henry said.
The final round of idol
will be held on Saturday,
Nov. 14 instead of the usual
Thursday night, and starts at
7 p.m.

Proving that real men can wear pink, Idol contestant
Jarred Gravley from Frostproof made it to the final round
with "Wake up Little Susie."


Billions of trees. miles of roads


Continued from page 1A
planted more than 3 billion
trees, most as wind breaks to
restore the Dust Bowl in the
Midwest. They Were respon-
sible for more than half of
all the reforestation, public
and private, done in the
nation's history.
They did much more
besides - building public
parks, draining swamps to
fight malaria, restocking
rivers with fish, and work-
ing on flood control proj-
ects.
The men built more than
3,000 fire towers and 97,000
miles of fire roads, and
spent more than 4 million


man-days fighting forest
fires.
They built thousands of
miles of new roadways,
including, -the Blue Ridge
Parkway. :i
The CCC was a major
responder in 1937 when
flooding devastated the
Ohio River Valley.
Through the CCC more
than 40,000 illiterate men
were taught how to read.
Initially, men had to be
American citizens, between
the ages of 18 and 25 and
unmarried to join. However,
the service was opened up to
veterans of the Spanish
American War and World


War I without restrictions.
Almost 300,000 veterans
joined, as did over 120,000
American Indians.
African Americans were
also welcomed into the
CCC, but the 250,000 men
were kept segregated and
worked in their own camps,
of which there were 150.


In 1940, with World War
II being fought in Europe,
the CCC was slowly wound
down, its manpower needed
for munition factories, and
the military services, espe-
cially after Roosevelt's
Lend Lease program with
England. In 1942 it was
closed down altogether.


Building the country


out of a depression


Continued from page 1A
and tucked our pant legs into
our socks.
"Our job was to dig ditches
from stagnant ponds out to
the ocean so the salt water
would come in and kill the
mosquitoes.
"We had picks and shovels
and would break up the coral
rock, then move it out of the
way.
"The rock was so hard the
-pick would strike sparks and
bounce back at you."
When he was asked if he
could drive a truck shortly
after he started to work,
Welch stretched the truth a
bit. He had driven Model A
Fords, and didn't think there
would be much of a differ-
ence.
In fact, he quickly mas-
tered the pick-up, grateful to
be out of the hot sun.
Later he� drove a larger
dump truck.
When the supervisor was
busy else where, the young
men would amuse themselves
by driving their trucks up the
steep inclines by the bridge
abutments. What Welch
called blue mud was hauled
out of the ocean and used for
the fill, held in place with
retaining walls.
"It was slippery stuff,"
Welch said, "like wet soap.
We'd drive the trucks up and
let . them slide down, back-
wards. We'd have someone
watching out, and as soon as
the supervisor headed back,
the look-out would yell 'Fire
in the hole,' and we'd get
right back to work."


In addition to eradicating
mosquitoes, Welch said the
men at his camp continued
the clean up after the hurri-
cane of 1935, built stone
retaining walls - many of
which are. still standing -
and re-decked the pier under
the Seven-Mile Bridge,
adding a safety rail to protect
the fishermen.
Welch served for nine
months. By then it was 1940
and World War II had broken
out in Europe.
While America was not yet
involved, President Franklin
Roosevelt was beginning to
prepare the country for war,
shifting funding from peace
time, economy stimulating
programs to those producing
munitions and expanding the
armed forces.
Welch returned home and
worked briefly for a flooring
company before enlisting in
the army.
"There aren't many of us
left," he said, but a hand full
of local residents who were
part of the CCC still get
together to remember old
times.
Welch also volunteers reg-
ularly at the CCC Museum in
Highlands Hammock State
Park. Fittingly, the museum
building was built by CCC
workers.

"No more excuses," said
Smith with a smile. "No
equipment is needed; I bring
all the stuff that's needed.
"I can work with any age
or physical condition. My


specialty is taking people to

A Dragon demolition


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun correspondent
LEHIGH ACRES - Here is
a little football math for you.
If you have a stingy
defense plus a potent offense
plus a spot-on special-teams
unit, that all adds up to equal
a rout.
That is exactly what Lake
happened for the Lake
Placid Green Dragons 5
as they routed
Gateway Charter Gat
School 55-0 in Lehigh
Acres Friday night.
From the opening
kickoff, the Dragons looked
unstoppable as Steven Guelff
booted the ball into the end
zone for his first of seven
touchbacks on the night.
The defense then got to
work and forced a three-and-
out.
The offense didn't take

long to put the ball in as
Caleb Jones found a seam
and took the ball 35 yards for
the touchdown - though the
Guelff extra point was
blocked.
On the Griffins' next pos-
session, realizing the ground
game wasn't going
'lacid anywhere, their best
5 option was to took to
the air.
The Lake Placid
way defensive front, how-
ever, added the pres-
sure and the defensive
backs locked down on
their receivers for another
three-and-out.
On the Dragons second
offensive possession, it took
only four plays to reach pay
dirt as they pounded the ball
with Jones before giving the
ball to their bruising full-
back, Navahri Holden, who


punched it in from two yards
out.
Guelff added the extra
point for a 13-0 first-quarter
lead.
After trading punts, the
Griffins were back on
offense, but with the same
result as before.

downs in Lake Placid's 55-0 win.


Allen and crew put

up good effort

despite loss at Tampa


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.comn
TAMPA - Avon Park's
Teddy Allen put on a good
showing Friday night in
Tampa, despite the 38-20
Red Devil loss to Tampa
Catholic.
"Teddy really did well
for us. We were just up
against a good program,"
head coach Andy
Bonjokian said. "I am still
amazed that these kids did
not give up and we man-
aged to score like Ne did "
"Something small goes
wrong every time. We just
could not compete for some
reason. They (Tampa
Catholic) were executing
consistently, and it
showed," Bonjokian added.
Tampa Catholic scored
quick in the first drive of
the game, putting
seven on the board Tampi
in just under two
minutes, but that
did not seem to 31
deter the Devils, Avon
who drove 60-yards
in response before a
sack killed the
drive.
,A mistake on the punt put
Tampa just 39 yards out, an
easy grind for Crusader
Henry McCloud.
McCloud would hammer
out 136 yards and two
touchdowns in three quar-
ters of play after 17 carries
for an average of eight
every time he touched the
skin.
* Bonjokian seemed to pull
out every weapon at his dis-
posal, but still came out
short on everything except
for Allen.
Allen rushed for 156
yards on 24 carries, averag-
ing 6.4 yards per carry and
two touchdowns.
In the air, Allen complet-
ed seven out of 13 attempts
for 118 yards, but threw an


a

interception to Crusader
Jeremi Wilkes that stalled
Avon Park's attempt early
in the second quarter.
"We were moving the
ball well at the start of the
second quarter, but just
when we were getting
close, I threw an intercep-
tion," Allen lamented.
"That pick killed us, we
could have scored and kept
it closer before the half.
That seemed to just sap us."
The Devils had a
respectable 126 yards total
offense to Tampa Catholic's
142 yards at the half, and
Avon Park went into the
locker room at the half
down 21-6 after a ground-
eating drive from their own
20 to score from the one.
In the third, Avon Park
again showed their tenacity,
but failed to convert
Cath. on a fourth-and-12,
S giving up the ball
on downs on their
own 36 which was
Park quickly converted
I to six by the
Crusaders.
"We never
thought we were out of it,
but we just could not con-
nect," Allen said. "We came
out of the half, and we
wanted to score."
And the facts hold up
Allen's assertions.
Allen scored again with
nine minutes left in the
fourth from the two after
another long drive.
The Devils pushed-for 71
yards complete with a 32
yard sprint from Allen and
a half-back pass from
Tekovian Miller to Alonzo
Robertson for 32 yards.
After holding the
Crusaders to just a field
goal in the next drive, the
Devils fought back out of a
hole again, this time off of
a 22-yard break by Allen

Devin 'Bubba' Clarke leads a host of Titan defenders on a fruitless chase as he was, off to the races on a 78-yard touch-
down reception in Sebring's 35-7 win at Tenoroc Friday night Below: Despite getting decked by Javarice Manago immedi-
ately after releasing the throw, Matt Grubb's pass went for a 52-yard score to Clarke.'


Clarke runs wild in Sebring win


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
LAKELAND - It wasn't
the start they were looking
for, traveling up to Lakeland
to face a two-year old
Tenoroc team that is still in
the building stages - though
recent results may have
shown this was coming.
And yet, after trailing 7-0,
the Blue Streaks found their
footing behind the spark of
Devin 'Bubba' Clarke and
won going away, 35-7.
"We sputtered a little bit
early on offense,"
head coach Jared Set
Hamlin said.
"Defensively we
played like we have
all year, but just had Ten
that one big play
against us."
That big play was a
slant over the middle from
quarterback Travis Tucker to
receiver Rashard Bell that
went for 78 yards and the
opening score late in the first
quarter.
Into the second quarter it
went with the Titans still
holding the 7-0 lead and the
Sebring offense still taking
two steps forward and three
back.
After a false start got
another drive off to an inaus-
picious start, quarterback
Matt Grubb zipped out a
screen to Clarke who dodged
the first two would-be tack-

lers and took it off down the
sideline for a 78-yard score
to even things up at 7-7.
That would have seemed to
be the spark that got things
going, especially with the
defense holding Tenoroc to a
three-and-out on its next pos-
session.
But two Damion
Thompson carries for 14
yards went for naught as
Grubb found himself under
pressure on an incompletion,
a Thompson carry was
stopped at the line and Grubb
was sacked to force a
ing punt.
S Things turned a lit-
tle scare, as the Titans
then started to march
as Ladaniel Brinson
carried for a 10-yard
gain, .Darius Frazier
ran twice for 15 yards
and Tucker connected with
Javarice Manago twice for 15
yards to get it into Blue
Streak territory.
But the defense came up
big with Devonte Pough
pouncing on a fumble to get
the ball back in Sebring's
hands.
It was soon enough back in
Clarke's hands, as well, as he
and Grubb connected on a
52-yarder on the first play
from scrimmage to take a 14-
7 lead with 1:54 left in the
half.
The defense stepped it up


again forcing a three-and-out
when Michael Hankerson
sacked Tucker for a nine-yard
loss on third down.
The punt gave the Streaks
the ball near midfield, and
there was no time for fooling
around as Sebring went with
what was working - Grubb to
Clarke.
After Grubb himself
gained 12 on a keeper, he
connected with Clarke on
five passes, the final one a
floater in the corner of the
end zone that was hauled in


with 3.8 seconds left and a
21-7 halftime lead.
The second half was
marked by three Sebring
interceptions, one each by
Zach Bullock. Pough and
Anthony Powell.
But other than two big
gains, one for 43 and one for
32 yards, Tenoroc's offense
wasn't going anywhere against
the 'Blue Steel' defense.
Meanwhile, after Pough's
pick, the Streaks found them-
selves at their own three,

Despite what it looks like, Avon Park quarterback Teddy
Allen actually fakes the hand-off to running back
Ladarius Wooden and picks up 18 yards on the keeper.
Wooden later left the game with a rib injury.

Clarke, Blue Steel D spark Sebring win0


Continued from 1C
with a rushing attemptexpect-
ed to give the offense a little
more room to work.
What, perhaps, was unex-
pected to the Tenoroc defense
was Clarke suddenly making
an appearance in the back-
field, and not only giving
Sebring some room, but
another score on a 97-yard
flash down the field.
The Titan's next drive
totaled -1 yard as the.fourth
quarter began and the Streaks
went to the ground attack to
eat up some clock and milk
this one away.
Clarke gained 12 on three


carries .and a Grubb to Clarke
pass went for another 16
yards.
But now it was Daniel
Burnett's turn to get into the
scoring action, bouncing off
left tackle and taking it out-
side for an 18-yard score that
put the finishing touches on
the win.
"Tenoroc came out and
played hard, I give them a lot
of credit for the way they
played," Hamlin said. "But
once Devin got going, that
rejuvenated everyone else and
got us going."
Clarke would total 318
yards altogether, 209 receiv-


ing and 109 on the ground, for
four touchdowns, with Grubb
going ll11-of-20 passing for
228 yards, three touchdowns
and one interception.
Thompson gained 66 yards
on 13 carries while Burnett
rushed seven times for 60
yards and a touchdown.
Unfortunately, Sebring's
faint glimmer of hope for a
playoff appearance was
snuffed out as Lake Wales
hammered Auburndale 48-0.
But there's little to hang
their heads about after another
strong performance, and with
their season finale this Friday
against Avon Park.

Devils' show no 'give-up'


Continued from 1C
from their own 35.
That set the stage for a
'Stick' Robertson connec-
tion for six from 13 yards
out, but the clock ran down
before the Devils could rally
any closer.
With just eight seconds
left in the game, the Devils
tried to bless Tampa
Catholic with a Hail-Mary,
but cane up short as the
final whistle blew.
"We were in this game all
the way, and no one expect-
ed that," Allen said.
The brutal Avon Park
schedule continues in their
finale this week, and don't
expect any give-up this time


around either as they square rival Sebring at Firemen's
off against long-time county Field Friday at 7:30 p.m.

Jones goes for five TDs


in Green Dragon win


Continued from 1C
scored from 15 yards out and
Guelff added the extra point
to put the Dragons up 20-0.
On the ensuing drive for
Gateway, the offense was
moving the ball well until
Taylor Price stripped the ball
carrier and Navahri Holden
fell on it to give the Dragons
the ball back -at the 35-yard
line.
The offense went to work
again and drove 35 yards in
six plays.
The drive was capped off
by Jones who scored from 11
yards out, with Guelff adding
the extra point to put the
Dragons up 27-0.
The Griffins mounted a
solid drive as they were able
to push the ball up the field to
the Dragon 25, where the
defense made a big fourth-
down stop to give the offense
back the ball.
One play later, however,
the defense was back on the
field for the Dragons thanks
to a bad center and quarter-
back exchange.
But they didn't miss a beat
as they forced the Griffins to
turn the ball over on downs.
With less than two minutes
left in the first half, the
Dragons marched the length
of the field thanks to some
powerful running from Jones.
On the drive, Kirk Veley
connected with Tony
Gonzalez for a 13-yard gain
and three plays later, Jones
hit pay dirt from seven yards
out for his fourth touchdown
of the first half.
Guelff added the extra
point to give the Dragons a
34-0 lead at halftime.
After receiving the open-
ing kickoff of the second


'They did more
than just pitch a
shutout. They
gave us the ball
in great field
position all night
long.'
JASON HOLDEN
Lake Placid head coach
half, Jones took a hand-off
and went 28 yards to put the
ball just outside the red zone.
The next play, Holden
went thundering through the
line of scrimmage for a 27-
yard touchdown, with the
extra point putting the score
at 41-0.
With the Dragons up by
more than 35 points, the run-
ning clock was put into place.
On the ensuing drive, the
tenacious Lake Placid
defense continued to pound
the Griffins, who went for it
on fourth down inside their
30, but failed.
With the ball in great field
position, Ernie Edwards hit
the hole for a seven-yard gain
and was followed by a five-
yard Jose Valdovinos run.
The next play, Veley called
his own number and scored
on a well designed quarter-
back keeper from six yards
out to put the margin at 48-0.
After forcing yet another
fourth-down stop, the Green
Dragon offense went to work
with great field position as
Jones had runs of four, six,
and eight yards to reach the
end zone, his fifth score, with
Guelff adding the extra point


to put the Dragons up 55-0.
The leading rusher for the
Dragons was Jones who had
19 carries for 219 yards and
the five touchdowns, all of
which are career highs.
The rushing night gave
Jones 1,227 yards for the sea-
son with one game left.
"Caleb has been great all
year for us," commented
head coach Jason Holden.
"He works well at tailback
and because he works hard
the rest of the guys step up to
work hard with him."
Navahri Holden had anoth-
er big night as he had five
carries for 38 yards and two
touchdowns.
"Navahri has been solid
for two seasons now," said
coach Holden. "He has been
big for us on offense and
defense and has been a huge
reason for Caleb's success."
Other rushers for the
Dragons were Edwards who
had seven yards, Valdovinos
who had five yards, and
Veley who had six yards and
a score.
On the night the Green
Dragon defense gave up 131
yards with 56 of those com-
ing on the Griffins final drive
of the game.
"Our guys played solid for
us," commented Holden.
"They did more for us than
just pitch a shut out. They
gave us the ball in great field
position all night long"
The win guarantees the
Dragons that they will not
have a losing record for the
first time in 11 years as they
improve to 5-4 on the year.
Lake Placid has one final
matchup Friday night as they
host Lemon Bay at 7:30 p.m.

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


"Could This Be The


Ultimate Tax Shelter?"


(Up to a $1,500.00 TAX CREDIT* makes
this opportunity almost a 'no-brainer.' Read on:)

Spencer Whitmire
Owner


DATELINE: Highlands County YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF


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

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

USE IT OR LOSE IT?

It seems as though you are going to "pay" for a
new, more efficient, air conditioner whether
you get one or not. If you replace your old
system you might be eligible for up to $1,500
in tax benefits. And, if you wait too long, you
may lose the tax credit, and pay a much higher
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
repair.
Locally owned and operated b
* Applies to central A/C with 16 SEER or higher. Certain restrictions apply.
Consult your tax advisor.


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

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

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

CALL NOW: for a no-charge,
no-obligation appointment,
and get the facts.

SENIOR SCENE


Dealing with 'hitch-itch'


This past week,
from the window of
my desk at work, I
watched as the RV's
rolled into the
resort to begin
another season
filled with sun and
fun. That's when it
occurred to me that
Sebring was in the
midst of an out-
break called "hitch-
itch!


RV
Rendezvous
JoMarie
Grinkielwicz


It's no secret that hitch-
itch reaches an all-time high
from late fall to early winter
here in Florida. So, what
exactly is hitch-itch, you
ask? Simply put, it's a nag-
ging., gnawing urge to tie
down all the loose stuff, start
your engine, and head on
down the road! Especially
when, as many have com-
mented at the registration
desk, "the summer up north
was the worst ever! It was
freezing and we're happy to
be back at our winter home."
Hitch-Itch is a compulsion
I have felt ever since I was a
small child. I had to laugh
the other day when I was
going through old photo-
graphs and came across sev-
eral of myself. In all of them
I was carrying a suitcase!
Back then I.didn't travel in a
house on wheels nor did I
even know such a thing exist-
ed. Trips were dependent 'on
my parents' - or my bicycle
- and thus much shorter.
Except for those cross coun-
try trips we made from south
Florida to Milwaukee, Wis.
But those trips - the longer
ones - the ones I yearned for,
are the ones I had to wait an
entire nine months for! When
summer vacation rolled
around.
When the "itch" got real
bad, I'd jump on my bike and
go for a ride. After stopping a
while at the end of the street,
around the corner from our
house, the urge to go some-
where else would only get
stronger. I'd look around -


then left and right,
and begin pedaling
my bike across the
street and down the
long road that led to
an area of new
homes being built. I
would stop, put my
kickstand down, and
meander around the
construction sites as
though I were on a
full-fledged expedi-
tion. Sometimes I


would lose all track of time
as I traveled from construc-
tion sites to shopping centers
and playgrounds. I'd arrive
home and hear the familiar
question from my dad,
"Where did you go this
time?"
That familiar question
asked so long ago of my
adventures on the road is
what I wondered about as I
watched the anxious and
excited RVers roll in to
begin another season. Some
would stop in to chat; others
were suffering too severely
from "hitch-itch" that just
kept on going, straight to
their site I smiled with
thoughts of how they would
soon become involved with
all the park activities and by
spring be exhausted from
water aerobics, bus trips,
bingo, cards, and neighbor-
hood barbeques. All will
return to their northern fami-
lies with many stories of
their adventures of how they
spent their winter.
There's no stopping hitch-
itch once it hits. This restless
urge to see new territory, to
find out what is beyond the
curve in the road, can only be
cured by getting into that RV
and beginning your journey.
Like pioneers of the past,
RVers find their own trails to
their own dreams.
May the force be with all
of you. Happy trails ... until
we meet again!

lished author living in Sebring.

Direct deposit of Social Security is safer, easier for winter travelers


As cold weather sets in, thousands of retirees are making
plans for a winter getaway. If you're one of them, switch to
direct deposit for your Social Security payments before you
leave - it's the safest, easiest way to receive your money.
"Each year, the U.S. Department of the Treasury receives
more than 1.4 million inquiries regarding paper check-related
problems," says David A. Lebryk, commissioner of the
Treasury Department's Financial Management Service.
Yet, approximately 10.5 million Americans continue to
receive their Social Security and Supplemental Security
Income (SSI) payments by paper check each month. The
Treasury Department's Go Direct (R) campaign encourages
senior citizens and people with disabilities to switch to direct
deposit.
Increased safety, convenience and reliability
When there's a problem with a Social Security payment,
nine times out of 10 it's with a paper check, not a direct
deposit payment, says Lebryk.
Paper checks can be vulnerable to financial crimes like
theft and fraud. In fact, the Treasury Department investigates
more than 70,000 cases of altered or fraudulently endorsed
checks each year, totaling $64 million in estimated value.
"In 2008 alone, more than 485,000 Social Security and SSI
checks were reported lost or stolen and had to be reissued,"
says Lebryk.


Direct deposit is also more convenient and reliable. There
is no more waiting for a check to arrive in the mail, and there
are no more worries about delivery delays due to severe
weather, local emergencies and other check related problems.
Last year alone, severe weather events forced alternative
delivery arrangements for millions of Social Security and SSI
paper checks.
"Switching to direct deposit for federal benefits is such an
easy way for people to safeguard their money, especially
when traveling for extended periods of time," says Lebryk.
"Your money is deposited to your account on payment day, so
there's no need to worry about delivery delays or a check sit-
ting in your mailbox while you're gone."
Prepaid debit card option
In addition to direct deposit, the Treasury Department rec-
ommends the Direct Express (R) Debit MasterCard (R) card
as an alternative to paper checks for people without bank
accounts.
More than half a million Americans signed up for the
optional Direct Express (R) card in its first year of availabili-
ty, according to the Treasury Department. A recent survey of
cardholders finds that 95 percent say they are satisfied with
the prepaid debit card, and 86 percent say they would recom-
mend it to family members or friends., who receive a federal
benefit payment.


With the Direct Express card, cardholders can make pur-
chases, pay bills and get cash at thousands of locations nation-
wide. Sign-up is free and no bank account is required. While
most services are free, there are fees for a limited number of
optional transactions and services.
Making the switch is easy
It is easy to make the switch to electronic payments for fed-
eral benefits. To sign up for direct deposit, call the Treasury
Department's Go Direct campaign helpline at 1-800-333-1795
or visit www.GoDirect.org. To sign up for the Treasury-rec-
ommended Direct Express card, or to learn more about the
card's features and fees, call 1-877-212-9991 or visit
www.USDirectExpr.ess.com.
The preceding information has been provided by the U.S.
Department of the Treasury, Financial Management Service.
The Go Direct (R) campaign is .,r1"d by the U.S.
Department of the Treasury and the I cxI.l Reserve Banks.
The Direct Express (R) Debit MasterCard (R) card is issued
by Comerica Bank, pursuant to a license by MasterCard
International Incorporated. MasterCard (R) and the
MasterCard (R) Brand Mark are registered trademarks of
MasterCard International Incorporated. The Go Direct (R)
logo, Direct Express (R) logo and Direct Express (R) are serv-
ice marks of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Financial
Management Service.

A REMARKABLE NEW EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR EARS -

AND YOUR LIFE! r

Lampe & Kiefer invites you to discover the new .,v`i ,E,

Hearing Aids.
When you have hearing loss, your ears may process only parts and pieces of words (toothbrush can become OO-BRU, for example)-
so speech sounds garbled and strange. Having people speak louder can help, but it doesn't address the problem. Hearing aids can
help fill in the gaps so you hear more sound more often.

Say hello to S SeriesTM by Starkey - the next generation in hearing aids. If you wear hearing aids, you know it can be difficult to hear
clearly on the telephone. The new S Series boasts Automatic Telephone Response - an advanced technology that automatically
adjusts your hearing aid to eliminate whistling for optimal telephone communication.

Sleek. Elegant. Barely visible when worn. And inside, the most advanced processor available. New Starkey S Series hearing aids
deliver smooth, clear sound and automatically transitions between sound environments. Welcome to the next generation.

The ranching business runs in the blood for the Murphy family


For more than 200 years,
Florida ranchers have contin-
ued traditions that gave birth
to the cattle industry. One of
Avon Park's early "cow men"
served in Korea then came
home to build his own ranch
from "scratch."
"The ranching business
runs in the blood," says
Glenn Murphy. "The entire
family is part of the busi-
ness." Janice Joy Brownell,
Glenn and Joy Murphy's
daughter, works side-by-side
with her daddy riding the
20,000-acre ranch that
includes cattle and citrus.
Janice teaches ag at Sebring
Middle School and her
daughter, Erin, is earning a
science degree at Brigham
Young University in Idaho.
Brownell's son also works on
the ranch, "when he is not
golfing" and all the Murphy
grandchildren have partici-
pated in the Highlands
County Fair and 4-H clubs.
Glenn is as proud of his
family as they are of him.
Janice says they have worked
hard together but also have a
lot of laughs. She says she


has learned to do almost
everything around the ranch
'but is happy that "daddy
keeps a good sharp edge on
his knife," referring to the
time when a bull has to be
castrated.
"He knows how to do a
good 'knife cut.'"
Today, Joy Murphy helps
out in the pens; they all
wean, vaccinate, worm, and
weigh cattle. "There isn't any
gender breakdown on this
ranch when it comes to the
work," says Joy, "but the
laughs are there also."
She remembers the time
that her son, Del Enoch, was
riding a green colt and let
him run wide open. "The
horse ran toward the gate and
Del couldn't stop it. The
horse jumped the gate as Del
was screaming and crying.
Del was so hot that he came
back and made the horse
jump the fence again."
After Glenn Murphy's
back surgery, he rides a Jeep
instead of a horse around the
ranch but still watches over
the management along with
his daughter. At one time,


Wild Florida

Murphy raced quarter horses
at Pompano Park. One mare,
"Miss High Step," ran the
"Show-Me Futurity" in
Illinois. But this was a hobby
as the Murphys' first love is
cattle ranching.
If there are words to the
wise that Murphy lives by, it
is his belief that "the land is
here and if you are thrifty
and a wise steward of the
land, the land will take care
of you." Janice Brownell says
she has learned about ranch-
ing by "watching daddy."
"You cannot learn ranching
of out of a book; it takes
practical knowledge and
common sense," adds Joy.
"Ranching is difficult in
Central Florida. When we
cleared the ground, we had to
improve it. We taught our
children through hard work.
We taught them to be honest,
truthful and to keep their
word." *
With an eye to the future

of cattle ranching, Murphy
does not believe that import-
ed beef will hurt the Florida
cattle market. But he doesn't
make any predictions.
"The green belt laws keep
ranches in business, but there
is a lot of red-tape and new
regulations."
Janice adds that there are
also many "new people today
from the outside moving into


Florida that don't value agri-

sizes that "hard work is,how

Red maple brings colorful accent to landscape


If you're looking for a nice
tree to accent your landscape,
you might think about Red
maple. It's a good choice for
urban areas where there is
enough room for its large
root system.
This tree will withstand
harsh urban conditions,
including tolerance of both
dry and wet soils, and a high-
er tolerance of pollution than
many other trees. Not only is
the red maple an attractive
addition to any yard, it has
the ability to attract many
species of wildlife.
Red maple (Acer rubrum)
is also known as Swamp or
Soft maple and it is one of
the most common and wide-
spread deciduous trees of
eastern North America. The
tree can grow quite tall and
may reach heights of 50 to
100 feet. The trunk diameter '
can grow to 30 inches. So, if
you choose to plant this tree,
make sure it will have ample
space to grow.
It derives its name from its
brilliant scarlet autumnal
foliage. Its flowers, petioles,
twigs and seeds are also red
to varying degrees. The bark
of the tree is a pale grey and
smooth when immature, but
becomes darker and rougher
with age. The attractiveness


of the leaves along
with the pleasing
foliage and form
makes it a popular
shade tree for many
landscapers.
The unique shape
of the maple's leaves
make it easy to iden-
tify. They are decid-
uous and arranged
oppositely. They are
about two to four
inches long and wide
with three to five


News From

Watershed

palmate lobes and a serrated
margin. The flowers are usu-
ally unisexual, with male and
female flowers located in
separate clusters. Flowers
appear in the spring and
appear reddish in color with
five small petals.
The fruit ranges from
about 1/2 to 3/4 inches long
with somewhat divergent
wings at an angle of 50 to 60
degrees. They vary in color
from light brown to reddish.
They ripen from April
through June and as they
reach maturity, the seeds are
dispersed for a one to two-
week period from April
through July.
More than any other forest
tree in North America, the
red maple does quite well in
a variety of habitats. It can


tolerate varying
types of soils, tex-
tures, moisture, pH
and even elevation.
In nature, it is found
growing in swamps,
in poor dry soils and
most places in
between. It has been
seen growing in
bogs, on top of
ridges and in poorly
drained depressions.
When growing in
a forest, the maple


will grow tall and branches
will be located high up near
the top of the tree. While in
open areas, the maple will
grow shorter and thicker with
a more rounded crown. The
ideal conditions for the red
maple are in moderately
well-drained soils where it is
moist most of the year and at
low or intermediate eleva-
tions.
Red maple can live for
about 150 years and reach
maturity at about 70-80
years. One of the reasons that
this tree is so prolific is that
at an early age it produces
roots to suit its site no matter
where the seed may have
fallen. For example, in wet
locations, the seedlings pro-
duce short taproots with long
and developed lateral roots.


In dry locations, they develop
long taproots with shorter lat-
erals. maple tree roots are
primarily horizontal in the
first 10 inches of the ground.
Adult trees can have roots
that reach 80 feet. In severe
dry conditions, these trees
will literally stop growing
and then produce a second
growth flush when conditions
improve. Because of their
adaptability and unique root
system, maples have been
known to survive in extreme
flooding and drought condi-
tions.
Although the maple is a
great choice for landscaping,
if horses are present on the
land, it may not be the right
tree for you. The leaves of
red maple are toxic to horses.
It damages red blood cells,
which in turn inhibits the
transport of oxygen.
Symptoms will occur with-
in one to two days after
ingestion and can include
depression, lethargy,
increased rate and depth of
breathing, increased heart
rate, jaundice, dark brown
urine, coma and death.
If you choose a Red maple
for your yard, make sure that
there is plenty of room for
not only the tree, but the
massive root system. If no

the tree easy to identify. The palmate leaves generally have
from three to five lobes with serrated edges.


horses are present and you
have the room, chances are
good that this is the right tree
for you. It will attract squir-
rels that will eat the buds, as
well as several other types of
wildlife. White-tailed deer
enjoy the growth of the Red
maple as a winter food
source.
Lepidoptera butterflies
and moths use the leaves as
food. It provides nutrition for
many species of wildlife in
the spring when other foods
may not be available.
The tree is a fast grower,
can reproduce by seed and
sprouts and adds beautiful
color to a landscape. All in
all, it's a good choice for you
if you're looking for a shade


producer and a plant that will
attract more critters. Red
maple trees are just one of
the many native plants that
will be available at the Air
Potato Exchange Day on Jan.
9 at the Bert J. Harris Jr.
Agriculture Center.
Just bring in a bag of air
potato bulbs and you'll get a
free native plant. To find out
more about the program

shop on Nov. 20 at the
Sebring Civic Center from 1-

News-Sun * Sunday, November 8, 2009


Be alert and on your toes this week, Leo


Aries (March 21-April 20) - Good
feelings may be taken for granted this
week, Aries, so you might go out of your
way to appreciate them. Appreciate the
small things.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) - Your
emotions are strong and upbeat this
week, Taurus, and foundations laid in
the next few days will be firm and long-
lasting. Friendships are easily made.
. Gemini (May 22-June 21) - Be
respectful in the company of others,
because a little slip of the tongue can
cause major problems, Gemini. Being
calm and polite is the way to go for
some time.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) - Cancer,
expect some realizations that startle and
surprises that change your way of think-,
ing all this week. It's an exciting ride,
and you will probably love every minute'
of it.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) - Be alert and
on your toes, Leo, because the pace this
week is bound to be fast and most likely
hectic. Meet others halfway and accept
any help you can get.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) - You will


HOROSCOPE


experience a flow of electrical energy
with someone whom you least expected,
Virgo. This could change your way of
thinking about your love life.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -
Restlessness and excitement start out
your week, Libra, but soon this impa-
tience turns to boredom. You need to
find a way to keep up your energy levels
the entire week.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - You will
find your intuition is right on the mark
and your reactions fit in with all around
you, Scorpio. Spread as much cheer as
possible so you have a strong fan club.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - It can
be difficult not to be overly critical this
week, Sagittarius. There is a lot of neg-
ative thinking in the air. Don't con-
tribute to that line of thinking. Be a
fresh voice.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) - A flur-


ry of activity for several days has the
phone ringing off the hook, Capricorn.
Turn it off and enjoy some quiet time
whenever you can. Challenges are mini-
mal.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) - Your
long-range goals come into focus now,
Aquarius, and you have a stronger sense
of where you should go with your life's
direction. You're energized to get ahead.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) - This
week you may change personal habits,
Pisces, and others may wonder about the
changes. You don't have all the answers.

swinging versions of some of the finest
material ever created by American com-
posers in an evening of pulsating
rhythms and memorable melodies.
The Davis & Dow Quartet takes the
stage on Thursday, Jan. 7 with its per-
formance, "Great Jazz Divas."
