County EDC

launches

new Web site

www.GrowHighlands.corn to be
a virtual business incubator
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Friday the 13th was a lucky
day for entrepreneurs in Highlands County as
the Economic Development Commission
(EDC) officially opened a new Web site to
help get the ball rolling for new businesses.
The site, www.GrowHighlands.com, is
designed to provide a lot of the information a
start-up business would need to get off the
ground.
"We are very excited to launch this site,"
said Dan Murphy, executive director of the
.EDC.
"Although there are many Web sites avail-
able to aid those seeking to start a business,
this Web site is unique in that it provides spe-
cific information to starting a business in
Highlands County and the Heartland area,"
Murphy said.
The Highlands County Business
Accelerator Inc., a not-for-profit corporation
with the mission to increase business in
Highlands County and the Heartland area,
helped to organize the site, which was fund-
ed by an Enterprise Florida grant.
Visitors to the site will have the ability to-
sign up for classes at the Small Business
Development Center, watch seminars, seek
and receive counseling and find information
about the different types of businesses and
how to start one of those businesses.
"In today's economy, more and more peo-
ple are looking into entrepreneurship as they
face job loss and job insecurity," said Eileen
Rodriguez, regional director of the Small
Business Development Center (SBDC) at the
University of South Florida.
"This Web site will serve as a portal to
help get them on their way. This is the first
step, a virtual incubator, our next step is to
get a real brick-and-mortar one," Murphy
added.
GrowHighlands.com offers flexibility for
the prospective business owner who could
benefit from attending seminars and receiv-
ing counseling, but has little time to do so.
For more information, call the EDC toll-
free at 888-388-4233.

Employee fired for fuel spill


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Highlands
County Solid Waste Director
Ken Wheeler on Thursday
terminated the employee that
he alleges was responsible
for a diesel spill at the coun-
ty landfill.
Dean Young of Sebring
received the memo from
Wheeler personally on Nov.


12, just one day after his
evaluation, announcing that
he was "hereby terminated
from employment with
Highlands County."
According to Wheeler's
memo, Young's "...actions
resulted in a fuel discharge
outside the secondary con-
tainment tank that caused
environmental pollution. You
did not report this fuel oil


spill."
Although the diesel spill
happened in May, the Florida
Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) shows no report of the
spill until July 24, and the
original complaint was for
5,000 gallons.
On Sept. 8, DEP

Learning


about work

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK - Park Elementary School buzzed
Friday during its third annual Teach-In. Representatives
of local businesses and organizations introduced the stu-
. dents to a variety of occupations, giving them something
to dream about for the future.
From glamorous firefighters, to police officers and
their specially trained dogs, to cake decorators, to dental
hygienists, to semi-truck drivers, to chiropractors, to
Progress Energy linemen, there was a little something for
every taste, including lessons in Avon Park history, grey-
hounds, a horse and a pony.
Police Chief Matthew Doughney, for example, spent
ALtime talking to children about how important it is to wear
NtPhelmets while bicycling or skateboarding.
News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Doughney reminded the students of the University of
Second-graders look up and wave encourage- Florida's quarterback Tim Tebow,
ment to firefighter Michael Turek as he
climbed up the extended ladder of his fire "He's bigger than me," said Doughney, who is not a
truck. The students were told to stay in small man, "and he was wearing a football helmet when
school if they wanted to become fire fighters he was hit and suffered a concussion. He had to rest for
themselves. The job requires a state certifica-
tion. Continued on page 7A


Helping senior drivers stay safe

Car Fit program offers inspections, solutions


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
AVON PARK - Marilyn
Palmer of Avon Park stopped
by the Car Fit event at South
Florida Community College
Saturday morning because
she was not comfortable with
the placement of her side
mirrors.
She was worried, she said,
because, "I can't see what's
coming up behind me."
That's exactly the kind of
problem the Car Fit program
was designed to catch. The
solution was to get two con-


cave mirrors to attach to the
side mirrors, allowing for a
better view.
"I feel safer knowing my
blind spots are covered,"
Palmer said when she was
done.
Saturday's Car Fit event
was supported with grants
from the Corporation for
Community and National
Service and support from
South Florida Community
College, volunteers from the
college's Retired Senior
Volunteer Program, the
AARP and local high


schools.
Car Fit uses specially
trained volunteers to help fit
seniors to their cars.
A 12-point inspection is
conducted to determine if the
driver is high enough in the
seat, can reach the pedals
safely, has the car mirrors
properly positioned, or needs
a special aid.
When deficiencies are
found, experts recommend
adjustments.
For example, some elderly

Chef's Auction raises big


bucks for March of Dimes


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - Maybe it
was the food, but this year's
Signature Chefs Auction, a
fundraiser benefiting the
March of Dimes, surpassed
expectations by exceeding its
goal of $25,000.
In total, the silent and live
auctions raised $27,000, all
of which goes to fund the
March Of Dimes mission to
improve the health of babies
by preventing birth defects,
premature birth and infant
mortality.
The evening was dedicated
to the memory of Chloe Lynn
Holton, daughter of
Lawrence and Sarah Holton
of Sebring. Chloe weighed
only 3 pounds, 14 ounces
when she was born Nov. 18,
2008.
She lived for eight weeks
before passing away on Jan.


14, 2009. Connie Young, a
community director for the
March of Dimes, said that
premature birth is a leading
cause of newborn death, and
a major determinant of ill-
ness and disability among
infants.
She also said March of
Dimes research has benefited
other fields, like the study of
Alzheimer's disease.
Two walls of the Le Mans
Room at Chateau Elan were
given over to food Thursday
night.
Ten restaurant booths
served up a wide variety of
dishes, including, but not
limited to, shrimp cerviche
and conch fritters from
Mulligans at Golf Hammock;
broccoli Alfredo and spaghet-
ti from Bob Evans; fillet
mignon with blue cheese and
seafood trio from Charlies
Steak and Seafood; spinach


or cheese pie and baklava
from Jimmy's Greek
American Grill; chicken
wing cacciatore and home-
made Italian sausage from
Galati's; a variety of wings
-from Beef O'Brady's; beg-
gar's purses - pastry filled
with lamb and pistachio
mousseline - from The
Palms' executive chef
MacGregor Gentleman; beef
Wellington from Chef Teddy
Valderrama of the Esperante
Restaurant; bow tie pasta and
tomato, basil and chicken
salad from Mae Lee's; and a
chocolate fountain courtesy
of Sunita's Pizza, Subs and
Sweets.
Los Vinos, a new store in
Lake Placid, offered glasses
of wine.
The other two walls of the
room were lined with tables
full of auctionable items.

250-plus county students get


barbershop harmony training


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - Students
from around the county got
the opportunity to participate
in a four-part barbershop har-
mony workshop-Friday at the
Sebring High School.
More than 200 girls and 50
boys took part as students
from Avon Park, Lake Placid
and Sebring gathered for the
workshop sponsored by the
Heartland Harmonizers
Barbershop Chorus, the
Barbershop Harmony
Foundation, the Sunshine
District, and the Heart of
Highlands Sweet Adelines
Chorus of Avon Park.
The goal of the workshop
was to provide students from
the high schools the opportu-
nity to improve their vocal
skills by listening to demon-
strations and participating in
learning and then signing in
four-part harmony barber-
shop style.
The day-long event includ-
ed vocal warm-ups, section
rehearsals, and combined

rehearsals.
The students were broken
up into four "sections"
according to their voice
pitch, then rehearsed their
part in the song.
The sections were then
brought back together for a
practice then a performance,
and the results were magical.
"This is so much fun," said
organizer and Heartland
Harmonizer Rex Darrow,
who, along with Iris and
Gene Cokecroft, put the clin-
ics together.
"It is just amazing to watch
as the kids' faces light up
when they sing as a group.
And the music is great,"


Darrow added '
"Wow, I did not expect
that," said well-wisher Fran
Johnson after listening to
"One Fine Day" performed
by 200 girls. "That was real
amazing."
The song ended in a stand-
ing ovation, and a lot of
smiles.
The boys performed "Look
on the Bright Side," complete
with a group sway and
crowd-pleasing attitude.
Afterwards, those attend-
ing were treated to other
local barbershop quartets.
"They had great fun, and
so did we," Darrow said after
the performance. "We hope
to do this again next year."
"This was a wonderful
event at no cost to the
schools - no cost for the
busses, no cost for the subs
and no costs for the music.
All that we ask out of this is
that you just keep singing,"
said Avon Park music direc-
tor Joy Loomis.

Habitat for Humanity


hurting for funding


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - In an interview Friday,
Habitat for Humanity's Director of
Development Sarah Pallone said both the
local chapter and the national organization
have been slowed by the economy.
Sponsorships and donations have dropped,
she said, just as the list of families waiting for
homes has grown.
Three hundred families are currently on the
waiting list. Fifty-nine of them have met all
the requirements including their sweat equity.
Some families have been waiting years.
"The housing crisis is getting bigger,"
Pallone said.
Which is one reason Habitat hopes to win
several grants now pending. The funding they
provide will build the Ridgewood Project,
Habitat's ambitious neighborhood that will
provide enough homes to house all 59 quali-
fied families on the waiting list.
"We'll know (whether we'll receive grant
money) within the next few weeks," Pallone
said, "and if we do we'll have lots of success


to share with everybody."
Grants aside, the only thing holding back
building is the money to do the actual build,
she said. Unlike most affiliates, for which
acquiring land is the biggest problem,
Highlands County has 50 empty lots ready
for homes.
Pallone said in every case the lot was either
donated to Habitat by people who couldn't
sell them or who willed them to the organiza-
tion.
"It's amazing," Pallone said. "We're
blessed to have more land inventory than
most affiliates, and in nice neighborhoods.
"And we have the volunteer labor to go as
well," she added. All that is lacking is the
money for materials.
Which is why Habitat recently mailed out
6,000 pieces announcing what they call the
500 Club.
If 500 individuals, families or businesses,
donate $500 apiece Habitat will have
$250,000 to build homes.
"We can build a lot of houses with that,"
Pallone said.

Gym class memories


So I saw in the news that
a bill our State Senate
passed mandates that kids in
grades 6-8 have one class
period of physical education
for a semester. Apparently it
goes into effect this year.
I understand why they're
doing it. They want to get
kids moving, to be fit. They
want to reduce childhood
obesity. They want to burn
off some of the kids' energy
so they don't spend it taking
the classrooms apart.
Yes, it's probably a good
idea. I feel sorry for the kids
anyway.
I have many memories of
gym class. During my stint
in elementary and high
school, I was forced to take
physical education. It was
never my favorite class.
Every year we wound up
doing stuff related to the
physical fitness test, some-
thing that supposedly canie
down from the president
himself. Of course, we were
all too young to vote so he
could inflict anything he
wanted on us.
I did very badly on almost
every aspect of the test. One
of the things they expected
you to do was to pull your-
self up on a horizontal bar
(like a chin up) and hang
there for a certain amount of
seconds.
Me? Forget it. The length
of time I managed was along
the lines of "blink and you
miss it." In other words, I
didn't pass that part of the
test.
My only consolation was
that I almost always passed
the flexibility tests. Bend
down and put my hands flat
on the floor and hold the
position? Yeah, I could do
that. In fact, I just checked
and I can still do that, but
it's a little more painful now.
We had gym suits that our
folks had to buy that we had
to wear during gym class.
We also had to remember to
take the gym clothes home
on occasion so that they'd
get washed. If you forgot
your gym suit, you got a bad
mark.
And I'm sorry, but the
physical education classes I
endured had almost no sym-
pathy for people like me

who are scared of heights. I
remember the ropes that
climbed to the ceiling that
they wanted us to climb. I
remember them demonstrat-
ing how to do it. The goal
was to get to the top.
I never did. I don't
remember exactly how I
managed to weasel out of
that particular task but they
never managed to make me
climb the stupid thing.
I was the kid whose par-
ents punished her by sending
her outside to play (I was a
bookworm from 9 very
young age). My coordination
was poor, I couldn't run
worth anything, and I was
the person no one wanted on
their team.
Being left handed made
for some interesting gym
classes. I recall when we had
some time doing archery. I
had to do everything the
opposite of my peers, and I
can't help but think I made
our gym teacher very nerv-
ous when I tried to shoot.
To be fair, there were a
couple of teachers who tried
to work with me. One got
my trembling form up on a
balance beam and gently
walked me up and down it.
Others realized I was never
going to be particularly good
at things like softball and
volleyball and kept the other
kids from killing me.
In the end, all that time of
gym class has left me with a
few scattered memories and
I'm still not fit. And I'm not
blaming my teachers - lack
of fitness is my fault, not
theirs.
The least I can do is
thank them for trying. And
pray that current gym teach-
ers will be sympathetic to
the bookworm with poor
coordination who cowers in
the corner of the gym. When
it comes to physical activity,
we need all the help we can
get.

Leave Social Security,
Medicare alone
Editor:
I have been on Social Security and
Medicare for quite a few years now and
I can't see anything wrong with it as it
is.
So why don't they leave it alone as it
is and stop all of this hoopla about
changing it.
I had four stitches in my finger, 20
staples put in the back of my head, a
trip to a heart doctor, etc. and they took
care of me just fine.
Yes, we should go after the doctors,
the hospitals and the pharmaceutical
companies who price-gouge everyone
for their services, but leave Social
Security and Medicare alone.
And yes, shut off everyone who has
never paid into Social Security.
Oh, by the way, why isn't hoopla in
the dictionary, how do you spell
hoopla, hopala, whopala? Ha!

American soldiers answer
special call
Editor:
There are many patriotic American
holidays but none is more special and
personal than Veterans Day. I believe
this is because our nation was born
through the sacrifices of those who
answered the Call of Duty. We cannot
see or talk to those who have served
and gone to Heaven's gates but there
are still many here and many to come
that are just like the ones before. This
Call of Duty is very special to
Americans. Although there has been a
terrible time when we fought each
other, it has made us a better country,
for history is a learning process and we
all fall short. We have never fought to
take another country's land. On the
contrary, we have fought to protect the
lives and land of others. The Call of
Duty for this nation's is a righteous one
and has made our soldiers the best in
the world.
There are many hardships to endure
when one answers the Call of Duty
whether volunteering or even being
drafted as were many. It means being
ready at all times to leave family. It
means no matter how dangerous the
conditions of deployment you will not
complain and cannot and will not quit.
It means the very citizens you defend
may disrespect you publicly and burn
the flag of the country you defend. It
can mean that even the President may
suggest the most insensitive, unpatriot-
ic and foolish idea such as get your
own health insurance for your war
wounds. All of this and the life you
have to put in harm's way for your
country will not hinder the soldier's


TODAY'S LETTERS
mission. The Call of Duty is much
greater. As a Christian nation, it is
noted biblically that there is no greater
gift to give than to give up your life for
another.
Our advancing technology in all
fields has saved and improved the lives
of all Americans and many others. Our
Christian clergy have saved many souls
here and abroad. All of this is possible
because of the unwavering commitment
of the American soldiers' Call of Duty.

Food for thought
Editor:
The trend of our government is and
has been for the last several administra-
tions to do things in secret. One of our
previous leaders even made the remark
that we needed someone to think for us.
They are trying to control the media by
trying to pass a law to take away our
rights to freedom of speech. They don't
want the public to know what they are
doing.
There have been people planted in
our town hall meetings to disrupt so the
message won't be heard, but thank
God, He has always made a way. If you
have opportunity to participate. in one
of these telephone question and answer
sessions, please do so. Even if we don't
have a question, we can learn a lot by
listening.
We have to be informed to make an
intelligent decision at the polls and we
can't wait until the day before to pre-
pare. Both parties have put too much
emphasis on keeping their positions
rather than the good of the country. If
you had access to the voting records,
you would find most of the Democrats
and some of the Republicans are pro-
moting everything that most of us are
against.
There are some indications that the
Republicans have seen the light. They
seem to be trying to learn more about
candidates before nominating them for
candidacy. I'm certainly praying that
that is the case.
We have to be realistic; we can't fix
one problem by creating another one.
Nor can we fulfill a promise of giving
everyone something for nothing. There
is and has been way too much of that
already. This only takes away the
incentive to take responsibility for
one's self.
There are some who have worked
diligently and made many sacrifices for
what they have, which makes one take
pride in his accomplishments, even
though they may not be that great.
When we earn what we have, we appre-
ciate it. There is a satisfaction in that
which surpasses any other avenue.
Besides all that, God is not pleased
with all this give away - especially at


the expense of the rest of us. Our pres-
ent administration likes to talk about
what a mess they inherited, and they
are right, but it is getting worse each
day. Never has our country been in debt
like we are today. The things that are in
the making will only make things
worse.
. May God continue to enlighten all of
us with the wisdom we need to make
our world a better place to live. May
His will take precedent over all else;
He will fix the rest.

Our youth remember
Veterans Day
Editor:
On Nov. 11, we attended a Veterans
Day Remembrance at the Lake Placid
Christian School on Interlake
Boulevard. We thank Headmaster
Dennis Griffin and the faculty for let-
ting us attend.
We were impressed with the students
and the ceremony. All the students and
faculty gathered around the flag pole.
The flag was raised by two students.
The pledge of allegiance with proper
salute was recited by all. The Rev.
DeHart led us in prayer and gave a lit-
tle talk on a friend of his who was in
the war. One of the students gave a
speech on what Veterans Day means to
us and how we should honor our veter-
ans.
It was a very simple and meaningful
ceremony It was our privilege and
pleasure to see and hear the youth of
today remember this Veterans Day.
Also in attendance was Charles
Krueger, past commander, and Suzanne
Krueger, patriotic instructor, from the
VFW 3880 in Lake Placid.
Let us all remember this day and
every day and say "Thank You" and
show our appreciation to all veterans
and service men and women for their
sacrifices to make this country a great
place for you and me to live in.
We owe them our daily freedoms
God bless America and thank you.

Volunteers.offer hope and health care in Highlands-County


By CARMEL PEREZ SNYDER
Special to the News-Sun
During a recession, it
might not always be easy to
find something for which to
be thankful. But many resi-
dents in Highlands County
can count Samaritan's Touch
Care Center in Sebring and
its volunteers as blessings
this Thanksgiving.
Samaritan's Touch Care
Center is a health-based min-
istry that relies on volunteers
and donated services.
Members of the Christian
Women's Job Corps from the
Baptist Church in Avon Park
realized the international
community in the county
needed medical care. Most
were agricultural workers
who harvested the areas cit-
rus and sugar cane crops.
Few if any, had health insur-
ance.
"The work is possible
because of volunteers," said
Diana Furr, executive direc-
tor of Samaritan's Touch
Care Center.
Furr, whose only experi-
ence in health care was as a
patient, found herself spear-
heading the organization of
the new health center.
Samaritan's Touch opened its
doors in May 2007. Thus far,
more than 1,000 patients
*have received an estimated
$5.3 million in donated med-



Hydrilla

treatments

planned

on Lake

Istokpoga
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING - Aquatic
plants play an important role
in aquatic systems worldwide
because they provide food
and habitat to fish, wildlife
and aquatic organisms. Plants
stabilize sediments, improve
water clarity and add diversi-
ty to the shallow areas of
lakes.
Unfortunately, non-native
plants that are introduced to
mnew habitats often become a
nuisance by threatening the
structure and function of
diverse native " aquatic
ecosystems. Invasive aquatic
plants often cause both eco-
nomic and ecotbgical harm.
One of the worst offenders
in the Highlands County area
lakes in hydrilla, and in an
effort to control its spread,
aerial treatments are planned
this week on Lake Istokpoga,
which currently has an esti-
mated 1,600 acres of topped
out hydrilla in its 28,00
acre.
Hydrilla verticillate is a
submersed plant in the
Hydrocharitaceae family. The
word "hydrilla" is derived
from hydra (Greek: water)
and verticillus (Latin: whori,
a water plant with whorls of
leaves, and was introduced
from Asia to Florida'in the
later 1950's by the aquarium
nursery trade.
It spread rapidly through-
out the state by intentional
(plant growers) and uninten-
tional (boat trailers) means.
Many confirmed initial infes-
tations have occurred near
public access points, suggest-
ing that boaters continue to
inadvertently transfer
hydrilla on trailered boats.
Hydrilla species reduces
native plant growth by form-
ing dense surface canopies
that shade out lower-growing
native plants and interferes
with water flow, boat traffic
and fishing. Hydrilla grows
almost entirely underwater as
a submersed aquatic plant
and its growth potential is
limited primarily by water


clarity and depth of light pen-
etration. It is uniquely adapt-
ed to grow under low light
conditions, which allows it to
colonize in water that is
deeper than most native sub-
mersed species can tolerate.
The plant reproduces easi-
ly and forms new colonies

ical care.
From the administrative
staff to doctors, volunteers
play a vital role in the suc-
cess of the center.
Terri Koopman, a nurse for
almost 50 years, is one of the
volunteers at Samaritan's
Touch. She also is involved
with the effort to open a sec-
ond health center in Lake
Placid.
Samaritan's Touch Care
Center has a four-month
waiting list.
"I have never been without
insurance in my life," said
Koopman, who also volun-
teers for AARP Tax Aide.
"I've never worried about
whether I can pay for health
care or about taking a child to
a doctor. But there are thou-
sands of our neighbors who
don't have that luxury. I can't
tell you what a gift, what a
blessing it is to be able to
provide this health care to
people who truly need it and
appreciate the enormity of
what happens here."
Dr. Luis Pena, a long-time
Highlands County physician,
quit his private practice to
take the job as medical direc-
tor of the center.
"He could make more
money, a lot more money

"I didn't have health insur-
ance," said Nancy Ortiz, who
found herself out of work
after 16 years as a bookkeep-
er at a local store. "Someone
told me about Dr. Pena and
the clinic and I came for an
appointment."
Ortiz was so touched by
the care she was given that
she immediately volunteered.
She worked at the clinic for a
year as a volunteer. Now
Ortiz works as staff member
in clinic operations support.
"I had decided that I would
have to cut back on my vol-
unteer time," she said. "I
needed a job. I was so thrilled
when this opened up because
I could continue working and
making a difference. I know
what it's like to be without
health insurance, and it is
wonderful to be able to help
Highlands County."

Wyatt, the blood hound and sheriff's deputy, was a big hit Mrs. Tooth, from the South Florida Community College den-
with the students at Park Elementary School. He is trained tal hygienist program, welcomes Park Elementary School

two weeks. He wasn't allowed to watch
television or read while he got better.
Can you imagine what might have hap-
pened if he wasn't wearing his helmet?
"Can you imagine what might hap-
pen to you if you were riding your bike
and you went flying and hit the pave-
ment without a helmet? You could
crack your skull open.
"If Tebow thinks helmets are good,
so should you."
Outside, the Avon Park fire depart-
ment had a fire engine set up, the lad-
der extending into the sky.
If you want to be a firefighter, the
students were told, you have to stay in
school.


Being a firefighter requires a lot of
learning, Alan Givens and Michael
Turek told the children. "You need to
know algebra and chemistry and sci-
ence, and you have to be able to read
and write well because there are reports
to be written and new material to be
studied all the time."
On the other side of the building,
two Highlands County Sheriff's Office
K-9 deputies had their dogs - Wyatt, a
bloodhound, and Ronie, a German
shepherd - ready for a demonstration.
Wyatt is a tracking dog. Ronie works
at apprehending suspects and protecting
police officers.
Putting on a padded protective
sleeve, which he let children touch and


examine, Deputy Chris Gunter went out
into the open field while William
Gentry let Ronie go with the order to
get the "bad man." In an impressive
tightly coiled spring of energy, Ronie
launched out, hanging within seconds
from Gunter's arm.
Wyatt, on the other hand, patiently
let the children run their hands over his
fur and pat his head.
Marty Hegwood, who teaches com-
mercial driving for South Florida
Community College, let the students
crawl through a semi cab. "Why do you
sleep in the back?" one student asked,
while another replied, "Why would you
want to?"

individuals can seat them-
selves, but are unable to
swing their leg into the car..
There is a strap with a loop
at one end so a person puts
their foot into the loop, and
pulls their leg in by hand.
Or there are people who
have trouble turning the
key in the ignition.
Extenders have been
invented to attach to the
key that make it easier to
turn.
In addition to fitting the
person to the car, Cat Fit
volunteers check the car
out for dings and scrapes or
other warning signs that. the
driver may have be having
trouble controlling the
automobile.
An occupational thera-
pist also is a part of the
team, and the last person a
driver sees.
The therapist walks with
the driver around the car
and observes their physical
condition and flexibility.
Kris Schmidt, who heads
the RSVP at SFCC, said
she and Jim McQuigg, Pat
Dease and Bill Gates (no,
not that Bill Gates) are all
trained by AARP and the


American Automobile
Association and have held
Car Fit check-ups before.
In April, fQr example, the
team saw 37 cars in four
hours during an event held
in Lake Placid.
Schmidt said she would
love to do another event.
She urges organiz*pns to
call her if they are interest-
ed in holding an event
themselves.
She said the equipment is
already on hand and would
be loaned and trained vol-
unteers would be provided,.
The only thing the organi.
zation needs is open space
for the cars.
Call 784-7189 for more
information.
Schmidt wanted the
community to know RSVPS
is always looking for vol-
unteers. It is a clearing
house that can match an
individual to an organiza-
tion or task.
She has 503 volunteers
who last year alone donated
68,000 hiars to county
organizations. A savings
for the county, Schmidt
said, of $1 million.

from small plant fragments. Infestations often
go unnoticed until the species "tops out" and
reaches -the surface of the water, where it
forms hundreds of lateral branches due to the
increased light intensity.
This surface canopy formed in the upper 1
to 2 feet of water compromises as much as 80
percent of the biomass of the plant. As inva-
sive plants such as hydrilla expands in a new
area, they suppress the growth of native
plants and cause localized extinction of
native species.
Preventing hydrilla from entering a water
body is the best method to control this nox-
ious species. Federal and state authorities
have made it illegal to sell or transport
hydrilla, which reduced the source of infesta-


tion. However, hydrilla still manages to
increase its range and to colonize new bodies
of water. Once hydrilla becomes established
in a water body, control options are costly and
generally must be employed on an annual
basis. Hydrilla has spread from Florida north
to Maine and Wisconsin and northwest to
Washington. Significant resources are often
expended to manage infestations of these
invasive species.
The annual cost to control hydrilla in pub-
lic waters of Florida alone totals approxi-
mately $15 million. Florida is particularly
impacted by hydrilla due to its moderate cli-
mate and shallow, naturally nutrient-rich
lakes.

County worker fired for fuel spill


Continued from page 1A
Environmental Specialist II
Raquel Arias wrote in an e-
mail that "A call came in to
otur department from Captain
(David) Harris alleging that a
5,000 gallon diesel fuel spill
had occurred on the
Highlands County landfill. I
responded to the incident and
found no evidence, of a spill
on site. All storage tanks
were in good condition. The
incident is considered a
closed complaint."
But the DEP re-opened the
complaint on Sept. 18 with a
Discharge Reporting Form
showing 100 to 300 gallons
were possibly discharged and
that 104 tons of contaminated
soil was excavated, and pos-
sibly over 100 more tons had
to be removed. 0
"I did let the tank over
flow on May 8, but it was
only 20-25 gallons, some-
thing I cleaned up with a
pack and a half of Wipe-Alls.
And the fuel was still in the
tank, not on the ground,"
Young said when contacted
on Friday.
"It was later reported that
holes were drilled into the


tank. I don't know about that.
I do know that a couple of
months after my spill, other
workers were ordered out
there to clean up more fuel
and water from the tank. That
was in August. The holes had
to put in there after that,"
-Young said.
Young's appeal states that
"on May 8, 2009, while per-
forming several duties at
Highlands County Solid
Waste and Asphalt Plant, I
had to leave fueling station
operations to attend to duties
involving the wastewater
treatment. When I go back, I
noticed some fuel inside the
holding tank. I cleaned up
inside the tank but I noticed
there was a wet line around
the outside of the contain-
ment tank. This was around
three or four in the afternoon.
I did not locate Dick Gorman
that afternoon at the landfill,
I called Dick Gornian on two
way Nextel Monday morning
which was the next business
day following the incident,"
Young wrote.
"With no protocol or S.O.P
(standard operating proce-
dure) to follow regarding


fueling operations, I followed
my own judgment and report-
ed the incident o the next
business day when my super-
visor was available," Young
wrote.
The final engineering
report concluded approxi-
mately 120 gallons of fuel
were probably discharged
into the soil based on the
amount of contaminated dirt
removed.
"It is unfortunate that Dean
did not report this spill, or
this whole thing could have
been avoided," Wheeler said
on Friday.
Wheeler was not sure if
there will be a fine for not
reporting the spill within a
timely manner.
"The spill was reported on
Sept. 17, and the DEP knows
we were mislead and that
once we discovered the spill
we reported it and then began
the proper clean-up right
away," Wheeler added.
At press time, the spill was
still under investigation,
according to an e-mail from
Rhonda Haag, ombudsman &
outreach manager with the
DEP.

LP Golden Corral to

honor veterans with

free meal on Monday


Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - On
Monday, Golden Corral will
thank thousands of active-
duty and retired United
States military personnel for
their service with a free din-
ner buffet and beverage,
while raising donations for
the Disabled American
Veterans. A tradition started
nine years ago to celebrate
the nation's heroes, Golden
Corral's Military
Appreciation Monday has'
served more than 2 million
complimentary meals to mili-
tary personnel and generated
nearly $3.3 million in contri-
butions for state and local
DAV chapters.
The Lake Placid location
has served more than 4,500
free meals and generated
more than $5,000 in contri-
butions for the local DAV
chapter.
"We have 45,000 employ-
ees in 485 restaurants nation-
wide that are very passionate
about supporting our military
service men and women, and
look forward to supporting
Military Appreciation
Monday annually," said Ted
Fowler, president and chief
executive officer of Golden
Corral. "While the current
economy is challenging, we
remain committed to recog-
nizing the military through
this program and look for-
ward to reaching 2.5 million
meals served and $4 million
raised this year."
Golden Corral has enlisted
Gary Sinise, celebrated
actor/director; Bo Derek, pop
icon and actress; and
Collective Soul, the platinum
award-winning band, to
record public service
announcements for Military
Appreciation Monday.


Sinise, Derek and Collective
Soul are all actively involved
in supporting active-duty and
retired military personnel
through a variety of organiza-
tions and initiatives including
tours to military installations
overseas.
"This is the fifth year I've
had the pleasure to partner
with Golden Corral in sup-
porting our troops, past and
present, through Military
Appreciation Monday,"
Sinise said. "The number of
meals given away and
amount of money donated in
the past eight years really
distinguishes Golden
Corral's commitment to the
military. I'm proud and
happy to help raise awareness
for Golden Corral Military
Appreciation Monday."
Golden Corral will serve
free dinner buffets with bev-
erage from 5-9 p.m. Monday
to any person who is or has
served in a U.S. military
branch, including the
National Guard and
Reserves. Identification is
not required. State and local
DAV representatives will be
on site at all Golden Corral
locations coordinating the
collection of donations from
customers. While only cur-
rent and -former military
qualify for the free meals,
everyone is encouraged to
come out and show support
for the veterans. For more
information on. Military
Appreciation Monday,: visit

tary.
Mark Tharp, owner of
Lake placid Golden Corral,
said, "We look forward every

who have given their servic-
es: Now it's our turn to give
them something back."

FLYING HIGH NOW


News-sun pnoto by VDAIN Hut.-UNEt
Though he was leaping to try and block a punt attempt, Zack Reynolds personified the Dragons flying-high feeling at secur-
ing their first winning record since the '98 season with a 41-6 trouncing of Lemon Bay Friday night.


A decade in the making:


Dragons notch winning season


By DONALD RIDGEWAY
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID - If you
have heard the rumor, it is
true. If you haven't caught
wind of it, here it is.
The Lake Placid Football
team has finished the 2009
season with a winning
record, both overall and in
District 6-2B play, finishing
6-4 and 3-2, respectively.
This marked the first time
in a decade that this has hap-
pened.
The Dragons won their
sixth game of the season by
drubbing class 3A Lemon
Bay 41-6 in front of a huge
crowd at Roger Scarborough


Memorial Field.
"This is a great win," com-
mented head coach Jason
Holden, in just his second
season at the helm of the
Dragons. "This group
of guys have worked Lake
so hard all year long.
It was great to send 4
our Seniors out op a
high note." Lemo
Senior running back
Caleb Jones had yet |
another stellar per-
formance as he rushed for
145 yards on 23 carries and
added 3 scores.
Jones has now rushed for
over 1,300 yards and 16
touchdowns on the season.

"Words cannot even tell
you how awesome this feels,"
said an energetic Jones. "It
has been great to play with
this group of guys and these
coaches, I am really
lacid gonna.miss it."
1 Lake Placid got the
offense going follow-
ing a strong defensive
Bay series from the Dragon
defense.
The Green Dragons
were able to put
together a 12-play, 60-yard
drive that was capped off by
a two-yard run by Jones.
On the ensuing drive,
Lemon Bay attempted to go
to the air after the Dragons


shut down the running game
and found themselves in long
yardage after a big sack by
Taylor Price to force a punt.
Following the Manta Ray
punt, the Dragons marched
down the, field thanks to
strong runs from Navahri
Holden and Jones.
Then, on third-and-four
inside the 20; quarterback
Kirk Veley called his own
number and took a quarter-
back sneak down to the one.
One play later, Jones
plunged in for the score.
After both teams traded
punts, the Manta Rays got the
ball back but the same result
was to come, as the stifling

Anthony Gonzalez, #42, and Devontra Fleming celebrate
Fleming's 85-yard touchdown reception in Friday's win.
Gonzalez would score his own touchdown minutes later.


Green Dragon defense shut
down the run forcing long
yardage on third down.
Andre Wilson and Price
then took quarterback Colin
Bannan down on a roll out to


force yet another punt.
Lake Placid needed only
three plays to reach paydirt
on their ensuing possession

SEBRING - Sebring girls
basketball coach Mike Lee is
all about progress, preferring
the peak performances
to come later in the Ba
season, rather than
earlier.
"If this , were
February, it might a bit Sel
different," he said
after Thursday's 58-53
loss to Bartow to fin-
ish out the Sebring Pre-
Season Classic. "But right
now, we're still learning, get-
ting some girls more experi-
ence and seeing what we
have for later."

Blue Streaks top Red Devils in


annual 'Backyard Brawl'


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - A crisp
snap in the clear autumn air
made it a perfect night for
football at Firemen's Field
on Friday, and the Sebring
Blue Streaks took advan-
tage of the conditions to
zap Avon Park 30-6 in the
final game of the season.
The solid storm wall of
the Streak defense cast
shadows over the Devil
offense all night, stalling
the usual ground eating
Avon Park offensive
machine and keeping them
off the board more than
once.
Sebring " T h e i r
defense
301 played
tough," said
Avon Park Avon Park
head coach
SA n d y
B Bonjokian
after the
game. "We struggled when
we lost Teddy (Allen) for a
second, but TK (Miller)
picked it back up. I am
proud of TK and his efforts.
We have used him at run-
ning back, and at defensive
back. I am proud of the way
he stepped in there
tonight."
"We are gonna build on
guys like him who want to
play," Bonjokian added.
And the sentiment was
mirrored on the other side
of the field.
"We came out and played
the way we are capable of
playing, and it showed. Our

Avon Park's Teddy Allen squares up to meet the oncoming Daniel Burnett as the Sebring
sideline looks on. Burnett would evade the tackle and take it to the three to set up
Sebring's opening score in Friday's 30-6 win over the Red Devils.


defense played wonderful, as
they have all year long," said
Sebring head coach Jared
Hamlin.
The loss of Allen in the
second quarter to a ham-
string pull allowed the
Streaks to hold Avon Park to
just 43 yards on the ground,
a feat that no other team has
accomplished all season.
"We just couldn't catch a
break," Bonjokian said.
"Teddy was wanting to go,
but I just could not let him
get in there. He is going to


play on Saturday's some-
where, and I just could not
jeopardize that for him at
this stage of the season."
All told, the Devils could
only grind out 126 yards
against the Blue Steel, and
would give up two safeties,
both in the first half, and a
slew of sacks.
The Streak offense
worked mostly off of light-
ning surgical strikes to make
things happen, using Devon
Clark at the point of attack.
"Offensively we did what


we needed to do," Hamlin,
said. "We didn't have that
explosive capacity that we
usually have, but we did the
job."
Daniel Burnett rolled
through the Devil line to set-
up Clark's score from the
three just four minutes into
the game, and then Clark
would throw to Gus
Williams for 40 and the TD
well into the second quarter.

Streaks see one-two punch in Williams, Rose


Continued from 1B
at the half.
"Bartow is a very good
team, and that's how we
wanted it, to see the two best
teams in the tournament,"
Lee said. "They're well
coached, they play hard and
smart and they've got some
shooters."
But Williams made her
presence known in the third
to push the Ladies in Blue -
though, actually the home
whites - to a 34-28 lead with
consecutive follows and
another strong move inside.
The Yellow Jackets main
outside weapon, Julie
Mahoney, then hit consecu-
tive threes to knot it at 34 and
two free throws from Zykira
Lewis put Bartow back on
top.
Things went' back and
forth, with Williams knock-
ing down a mid-range
jumper, Lewis connecting on
two more free throws and
Sebring's Zykeria Dawkins
stopping and popping a 15-
footer.
Mahoney answered with a
baseline jumper, but Rose put
the Streaks back up, 41-40,
with her fourth three of the
game.
Bartow's Desiray Williams
powered in for two before
Amanda Grimaldo hit a
floater in the lane.
But another Mahoney three
and a Williams inside bucket
sandwiched a Sam Jansen
put-back to end the quarter
with the Jackets up 47-45.
Bartow started to pull
away early in the fourth quar-
ter, with Alexus Jones driv-
ing for two, to be answered
by a Dawkins runner, but
then having that answered
with another trey from
Mahoney to make it 52-47.
Jerica Moore made one-of-
two at the line before Arielle
Gallon hit a baseline floater,
but a Tangie McCullors steal
and full-court drive for two
brought Sebring back to
within 54-50 at the 1:30
mark.


With things now slowed
down as Barlow tried to milk
the clock down. a Gallon lay-
in off an inbound play
seemed to seal the deal with
47 seconds left.
But Rose came up big, hit-
ting a big three with 26 sec-
onds to go to make it a 56-53
game.
Time was now against the
Streaks, however, forcing
.them to foul and for Bartow
to provide for .the final mar-
gin at the line.
"We played a lot better
tonight," Lee said afterward.
"They're a great group of


girls, they're working hard
and there is no complaining.
We've played a couple of
tough teams, but that's just
getting us ready for our dis-
trict, which is going to be
tough."


That district slate gets
going Tuesday, as the team
travels to Lake Wales to face
the Lady Highlanders before
returning home Thursday to
play Hardee in a non-district
contest.

Streaks take fourth in


a row over Devils


Continued from 1B
Matt Grubb would connect
again with Clark, this time
from 26 yards out for the
touch with just 1:46 left in
the half, leading Sebring into
the locker room 24-0 over the
Devils.
Most of the third quarter
was a Sebring clock-eating
ground assault, but Avon
Park got, and lost, their
opportunity when Steven
Robertson blocked a Streak
punt and returned it five
yards before it was stripped
away.
The Streak offense stayed
on the field when they recov-
ered the fumble, but were
unable to convert for six and
gave it back on downs with


just 22 seconds in the third.
Avon Park wasted no time
when Miller connected with
every quarterback's favorite
target, 6-foot-5 Alonzo
Robertson, for 30 yards.
Robertson would leg out
another 47 yards on the catch
before being dragged down at
the Sebring 19.
Miller connected again,
with David Callahan making
the snag for the Devils from
where Robertson's big gain
left off.
Austin Hendrick caught
the next connect from Miller,
from the three for the six.
Allen would go back in at
wide receiver for just one
play, leaving again with a


limp, but the Devils could not
drive it in again before the
clock wound.down.
Avon Park would get an
unsuccessful shot when they
blocked a Streak field goal
attempt.
Sebring gracefully took a
knee at Avon Park's three in
the last few seconds, not
twisting the knife in a game
already won 30-6 after taking
over on downs.
Neither team has the
record to move on to dis-
tricts, but there was a definite
turnaround in Highlands
County football this year,
keeping the respective faith-
fuls entertained all season
long.


Lake Placid cruises, tops .500

for first time since '98


Continued from 1B
as Veley connected with
Devontra Flemming for a
12-yard pitch and catch.
That play was then fol-
lowed by a Jones 23-yard
scamper and, on first-and-
10 from the 11, Jones took a
toss sweep and made what
could be the best run of his
career as he followed his
blocks into the end zone.
At the end of the first half
the Dragons were up 21-0
and were able to hold
Lemon Bay to only 31 total
yards of offense.
Lake Placid got the ball to
open the second half and
went the length of the field
in six plays.
Things got rolling for the
Dragons as Veley connected
with Flemming on 18-yard
pick-up and was then fol-
lowed by four solid runs by
Jones.
The big gainer came on
the next play when Holden
took a dive 33-yards for the
score.
Lemon Bay managed to


get their offense moving a
little on the next series as
they were able .to pick up a
first down - but that was all
the Dragons were giving up
on that possession.
On third-and-six, Laurent
Lollis picked up a huge sack
that set the Manta Rays back
15 yards.
On the play, Lollis picked
up half of the turf in his
facemask, leaving what lie
would call a "big ol' crater."
Following the punt, the
Dragons needed only one
play to score as Veley hit
Flemming on a beautifully
thrown pass along the far
sideline that netted the
Dragons 85 yards and put
them up 34-0.
The Lake Placid defense
continued their dominance
on their next series as they
got an interception from
Holden with just over two
minutes to go in the quarter.
The offense began to
sputter as the Manta Ray
defense seemed to know
what was coming until


third-and-12 when Lake
Placid called a double
reverse.
The smallest guy on the
field, Anthony Gonzalez,
took the handoff and found
a seam and went 32 yards
for the touchdown.
The score put the Dragons
up 41-0 and forcing a
mandlatory running clock for
the fourth quarter.
On the final drive of the
game for Lemon Bay,
Andrew Schulte managed to
find the end zone with only
18 ticks left on the clock as
he scored on a sweep from
five yards out to keep Lake
Placid from having their
second consecutive shut out.
Holden added to the
offense with 52 yards on 5
carries and a score, Veley
had a huge night passing as
he went 5-of-9 for 135 yards
and a touchdown while
Flemming was his go-to
receiver, catching 3 passes
for 115 yards and a touch-
down.

"A cattle drive is like no
other experience; there is no
past, only what's ahead of
you on the trail. You are by
yourself."
- John Platt

- Still tending to the prairie
land and cattle that his
ancestors grew into a work-
ing rand�e�ntwen'Zolfo
Springs and Sebring, 78-
y�ar-gJ[ hg! is.part of .
a long line of cow .en. John
Platt's,great-great"grandpar-
ents, JoshuaIand Frances
Marin Platt, settled in Plant
City in the T800s. They
passed oji their love of the
land and raising scrub cattle
io their own Lhildren. Hiram.
and John Platt's daddy.
Cecil.
Born in 1931, John Platt
went to high school in
Melbourne until the family
moved to south central
Florida in 1991.
"I've been working on a
ranch Jince I was 6 years
old. I went on my first two
week cattle drive when I was
9. It took tour days to drive
the 300 head of cattle from
Melbourne to Slue Cypress,
which -, .s% over 60 or 70
miles through the woods.
When 'ni, papa and I got
there %% e had run out of gro-
ceries. A man named Alfred
Raulerson was to meet us the
day before w ith more food
but he was a day late. So we
left the herd at Blue Cypress
and went to Kenansville for


Wild
Florida
Nancy Dale

groceries. We had only one
dollar between us so we
bought bacon, bread, a can
of beans, and even had some
change leftover. Later that
afternoon Alfred arrived at
Blue Cypress. Papa asked if
I could, lead his horse back
to Melbourne, if so, he
would go with Alfred
Raulerson to the Kissimmee
Livestock Market to sell
some yearlings. I told him I
could do it.
"I started out at about 1
p.m. heading home. I had
two fences to go through on
the way. There were two
gaps to go through. I knew
they would be hard to open
and close, so Papa made me
a 'chester stick' to hook over
the gap post so I could get
leverage as I was only close
to 10 years old. I would get
off my horse and then tie
both of them up to open the
gap, lead the horses through,
then close the gap the same
way I opened it. I had to
leave my horse tied to the
fence while I got on her so
she would not run off. After
mounting, I untied Papa's
horse and started out again
towards home. I rode about
1 1/2 hours before dark so I
could build a fire out of
lighteredd' wood to cook my


bacon. I had a sweet potato,
bread and jelly to eat. I also
had a package of cookies
and a small can of pork and
beans with water to drink.
"Morning came a little
before daylight, so I fed the
horses then had a repeat for
breakfast 7- mostly jelly,
bread and water. I rode that
day to Melbourne highway
at the county line and spent
the night there in an old
lean-to shed. I had a repeat
for supper and fed the hors-
es. I woke up about 3 a.m.
from the hoot owls in the
cabbage palm hammock.
They were making me
uneasy so I got my horse
saddled and started home. I
got there at-about 2 p.m.
"I think about the kids 9
to 15 years old today. Most
of them would not camp in
the backyard at that age,
much less 60 miles away
from home alone. It was a
great experience for me and
I will never forget it. I made
$6 for the whole trip, plus
$1 for leading Papa's horse.
. That was the summer.of
1940-41 ."

Wild turkeys living


well in Highlands


Welcome to our roost.
Mainly because Highlands
County is a rural, agricultur-
al county, one can only sur-
mise how many wild turkeys
will be gracing the supper
tables this Thanksgiving,
instead of the "store-bought"
ones raised on poulir. "fac-
tory farms." Ndt onl) will
that wild turkey receive all
the tender attention it
deserves to go from field to
oven, but a sense of accom-
plishment and satisfaction of
"putting meat on the table"
certainly will be there. (And
this observation from two
city-raised writers).
"Osceola" is the name of
our Florida turkey
(Meleagris gallopavo sil-
vestris), which is actually a
sub-species of the eastern
turkey. It is a little smaller in
size and darker in color than
the eastern species - and
yes, it was named after that
great Seminole chief,
Osceola, who carried on a
war against Americans in a
20-year conflict beginning in
1835.
There can be no doubt that
the wild turkey is a beautiful
bird. It is large (males, 48
inches; females, 36 inches),
more slender than the
domestic bird and with the
familiar "gobble" easily imi-
tated by hunters. This bird
was almost hunted to extinc-
tion, but luckily laws were
passed and enforced, ,


Birds & Other
Wild Things
Ruth & Hank Kowalski

restricting hunting to certain
times of the year with bag
limits. Critical habitat pro-
tection, promoted by such
organizations as the
Audubon Society, Sierra
Club and especially the
National Wild Turkey
Federation, guarantees that
the future of our wild turkey
population will continue to
succeed. And yes, Benjamin
Franklin did lobby hard and
long to have the American
turkey declared the official
bird of the United States,
rather than the bald eagle.
The Florida wild turkey
breeding season begins in
mid-March and usually eight-
to 12 eggs are laid in a shal-
low hollow, on the ground,
sparsely lined with nearby
vegetation and/or dead
leaves. The preparation of
the nest site and incubation
is by the female and takes 28
days. The young are tended
by the female alone, and
they feed themselves and are
brooded and guarded by the
adult.
Wings grow rapidly and
young can fly into trees at
two weeks and roost on a
branch with the female.
Broods remain together until
winter.

The county's population of the wild turkey is holding up
quite well.


Wild turkeys eat quantities
of acorns, wax myrtle
berries, seeds of hornbean.
and poison ivy, and various
insects. This diet is supple-
mented by gum seeds, huck-
leberries, seeds of the black
gum rush, saw palmetto
seeds and .grass.
Eggs hatch after 25-26
days of continuous incuba-
tion. Poults will roost on the
ground for the first 14 days
after hatching. During this
period, approximately 70
percent mortality occurs pri-
.marily through predations.
Predators include raccoons,
skunks, opossums, foxes,
coyotes and domestic dogs,
and feral or free roaming
domestic cats.

population in Highlands
County is holding up quite
well and a recent canvass of

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

"Could This Be The

Ultimate Tax Shelter?"


(Up to a $1,500.00 TAX CREDIT* mal
this opportunity almost a 'no-brainer.' Re.

DATELINE: Highlands County
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.

Third workshop on invasive, exotic plants is Nov. 20


Florida is plagued
by -many invasive,
exotic species of
plants and animals.
Air potato is among
.the plants that are of
main concern. This
plant will take over
a vacant lot in a
matter of months
and grows about
eight inches per day.
. Air Potato is just
odee of the many
exotic species that

upcoming workshop on at 1
p.m. Saturday at the Sebring
Civic Center near the library.
The Highlands Soil and
Water Conservation District
wlil iold a workshop on
Florida's invasive, exotic
plants and animals.
This will be the third of
four presentations designed
to educate citizens about the
problems that these species .
cause to our environment.
When participants leave,
they should be able to identi-
fy varidis exotic species and
understand why they are a
problem. Instructions on
how to receive a free, native
plant during the Air Potato
Exchange Day scheduled for


From


January will also be
available.
Exotic species
have arrived in
Florida in different
ways. Some have
been introduced
accidentally and
others brought here
intentionally.
Accidental imports


he have arrived as con-
,rshed taminants in bales
and cartons of valid
Burgess agricultural and
freight shipments. Some
arrived in the ballast water
of old sailing ships. Some
deliberate imports came in
as ornamentals, some for
erosion control, and some
for the aquarium trade.
Others were smuggled in.
Many exotics came in before
we had import regulations or
recognized invasive species
as problems.
These menaces are biolog-
ical pollutants. Invasive
exotics are responsible for
destroying more natural
habitat each year than is
destroyed through land
'development. Highly inva-
sive exotic species severely
disrupt native ecosystems
and often times totally dis-

The Air Potato vine is quite attractive with heart shaped
leaves and 'potato' type bulbs; many exotic plants are pleas-
ing to the eye. But don't let their appearance fool you; they
cause millions of dollars worth of damage each year. This is
just one of the many species that will be identified in this
week's workshop.


place native species. Plants
and animals that don't .
belong in Florida are elimi-
nating and altering natural
habitat for wildlife. These
* plants and animals compete
for food and space thereby
displacing the native plants
and animals.
Not only are our natural
areas being destroyed by
these aggressive monsters,
exotic removal costs mil-


lions of dollars a year in tax
payer dollars. According to
ecologists from Cornell
University, these invaders
cost the United States about
$123 billion a year in eco-
nomic losses.-
If anything, the estimates
made in the damage assess-
ment study, Environmental
and Economic Costs
Associated with Non-indige-
nous Species in the United


States, are conservative.
More than 40 percent of
species on the U.S.
Department of the Interior's
endangered or threatened
species lists are at risk pri-
marily because of non-
indigenous species - and a
price tag cannot be placed
on their loss.
Here's your chance to find
out more about these inva-
sive aggressors. Come to the
workshop scheduled for Nov.
20 at the Sebring Civic
Center. You'll learn about
many of the invasive species
that are a problem in
Highlands County.
You'll receive free hand-
outs and information about
some of these species and
have a chance to win a beau-
tiful native plant as a door
prize.
The plants that will be
given away at the workshops
and at the exchange day in
January are provided by
Lord's Farm Nursery. There
will also be refreshments
and the workshop is free.
What have you got to lose?
Find out how you will be
able to receive a free native
plant in January during our
Air Potato Exchange Day.


The funds to purchase the
hundreds of native plants
' that will be given away next
year, came from a grant from
the Florida Exotic Pest Plant
Council - Kathy Craddock
Burks education grant. The
idea behind the project is to
get you, the citizens of our
beautiful county, involved in
the exotic species problem
and to become part of the
solution.
By planting native and
removing exotics, you will
be actively taking part in
helping the environment you
live in. You can be part of
the solution by helping to
remove them and also get
your friends, neighbors, kids:
and grandkids involved and
start helping native species,
to survive.

Confrontations may be unpleasant for Gemini


Page liB


S- - M - t o


Aries (March 21-April 20) - Your
frustration may reach a boiling point
this week, Aries. You need to find an
outlet or you may just explode. Find
something relaxing an d do it in spades.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) - A sud-
den blast of inspiration gets you through
some tough times this week, Taurus. The
creative juices get flowing and you pro-
duce everything you need to get done.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) -
Confrontations may be unpleasant,
Gemini, but sometimes they are neces-
sary. Just make sure you are diplomatic
and logical in your approach or it could
backfire on you.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) -
Although you may prefer to be silent
this week on a certain matter, Cancer,
once you get started voicing your opin-
ion it can be hard to stop. Try not to say
too much'.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) - This week
you will learn that you can be content
with fewer material things than you
thought. That's because money is tight
and you can't succumb to every whim.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) - Every day


HROSCOPE 0


can't be a happy day, Virgo, and there
are some bumpy ones along the way this
week. Use this opportunity to learn from
the bad day experiences.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Right now
it could seem challenging to find a pos-
itive outcome in your love life, Libra.
But just stick with what you're 'doing
and you just may be pleasantly surprised
later on.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - You may
need to put on a suit of armor this week,
Scorpio, because your friends may be
unnecessarily brutal toward you for no
apparent reason. Avoid fighting back.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - This
week you're pretty tied from all of your
hard work through the months,
Sagittarius. You're tempted to just throw
in the towel for a while. That's not the
thing to do right now.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) - You


have high hopes around an upcoming
adventure, Capricorn. Just don't let your
self-confidence waver or the plans could
fall through. Let go of your fears.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) - If you
were expecting some help from a friend
or family member, Aquarius, you may
not like the reality that he or she won't
follow through. It's all up to you.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are
a few more steps closer to your dream,
Pisces. That's enough for now to keep
you moving forward. Anything is possi-
ble.
