SEBRING - While the numbers weren't ready
by press time, shoppers were out at the Lakeshore
Mall Friday, checking out the discounts and their
gift lists to the sounds of Andy Williams singing
"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year."
It was the perfect song for retailers, for whom
November and December typically produce as much
as half of their annual sales and profits. This is why
the Friday after Thanksgiving is called Black Friday
- it's when the balance books move out of the red.
As much as-it is a sign of the selling season,

however, Black Friday is not the busiest shopping
day of the year. That day has always been the
Saturday before Christmas.
This year experts expect a rise in the number of
shoppers overall. The National Retail Federation
predicted about 134 million bargain hunters as
opposed to last year's 128 million:
According to an Associated Press report, Friday's
early reports showed bigger crowds at stores with
shoppers buying more than last year. J.C. Penney on

Think twice before giving a pet as a gift


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - One of the warm
fuzzies of Christmas is having a
child open a box and have an
adorable puppy, kitten, or gerbil
jump out.
Experts warn, however, that
introducing a new animal into a
household during a peak period of
excitement, when life is hectic
and guests coming and going, is
stressful for animals who have
just left their familiar world and
are now surrounded by strange
people, sounds and smells.
The distractions of fragrant
food, wads of wrapping paper and
strands of twinkling lights can
overwhelm an animal, leading to
accidents and unruly behavior.
Pets, after all, are living crea-
tures, which need healthy food
and steady routines in order to
develop into calm and reliable
companions.
The earliest days spent with

is expected of it, and who will be
in charge.

Group explores Jewish tradition

in Sebring (and yes, there is one)


News-Sun photo by Larry Levey
Sebring's Ruth Kahn Davis discusses the early history of
Jews in Central Florida with Dr. Leonard Kessler of Weston,
FL. Davis had just spoken to Kessler and the others in the
Exploritas group about how her parents had settled in
Sebring and opened Kahn's Department Store in downtown
Sebring during .the 1920s.


By LARRY LEVEY
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - No Jews liv-
ing in central Florida? Of
course there are. But,
according to Rabbi Lorraine
Rudenberg of Temple Israel
of Highlands County, "that's
the perception. People think
they're all in Miami, Palm
Beach or Boca.
"I find that many Jewish
people who move here do
not know there's a syna-
gogue in Sebring,"
Rudenberg said. "They don't
expect it in this area. They
feel by moving here, they're
not going to be able to have
their Judaism. Everything's
an hour-and-a-half away."


'Ifind that many Jewish people who
move here do not know there's a
synagogue in Sebring.'

LORRAINE RUDENBERG
Local rabbi


The rabbi made those
comments during a four-day
program Nov. 11-14 called
"Shalom Aleichem," a
Hebrew greeting meaning,
"peace be with you."
Eleven folks, mainly from
the coasts of Florida, had ,
signed up for the program,
. which was sponsored by
South Florida Community
College under what used to


be called the "Elderhostel"
banner. That title has recent-
ly been changed to
"Exploritas."

SEBRING -- The City of Sebring will
consider the second reading of two ordi-
nances at Tuesday's city council meeting
that prohibits the use of chain link fences
in front yards, and changes the set backs
for side yards.
On Oct. 20, the council directed plan-

Special to the News-Sun
KITGUM, Uganda - When
the son of a Sebring couple
stepped onto the orange-red
soil of this Central African
nation, he could have .been
walking into a National
Geographic special presenta-
tion.
Surrounded by Africans
living in grass-roofed mud
huts that dotted the country-
side, 550 American military
members would bring mod-
ern medical science and
medication, sweat equity and
supplies to rebuild old, run-
down schools, and an open

lethal military tactics that
Eastern African armies could
use to bring civil order dur-
ing future times of trouble.

Sgt. Robert J. Abt Jr., son of
Robert and Colette Abt of

couple of weeks here sup-
porting a military exercise

assistance to local Ugandans,

DEP's Landers


says asphalt grant


still under review


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge @ newssun.com
SEBRING - County
staff assured the Highlands
Board of Commissioners
during their meeting on
Nov. 24 that the county will
receive the other half of the
$1.65 million grant for the
asphalt plant, but according
to Program Administrator
Randal Landers of the
Department of Environ-
mental Protection, the dis-
bursement of over $843,000
is still under review.
Chairperson Barbara
Stewart originally noticed
that the grant had not been
full funded and that . a
request for a restructuring of
the loan against the equip-
ment was in the consent part
of the county's agenda dur-
ing the commission meeting
on Nov. 3.
When Stewart requested
that the item be moved
down to the action side of
the agenda for discussion,
Solid Waste Director Ken
Wheeler informed her that
the funds were being with-
held by the state'.
"Another state office has
changed the way they are
interpreting this," Wheeler
said.
When the DEP was ques-
tioned by the News-Sun
why. the funds were not
forthcoming, Landers
replied in an e-mail that the
"DEP fully intends to fund
the entire $1.65 million
grant to the County when
invoices with supporting
documentation in accor-
dance with the agreement
and its amendments totaling
$1.65 million are submitted
and approved. On
November 20, 2009, DEP
received another invoice
from the County with sup-
porting documentation for
$843,135.41. It is currently
under review."
But, Landers did not con-
firm if or when the county
would get the check. ,
With a 3-2 vote during the
Nov. 3 meeting, commis-
sioners reluctantly passed'a
request to revise the
SunTrust payment schedule


for the equipment at the
asphalt plant, but expressed
their displeasure about not
being informed about issues
with the state.
The changes have already
cost the county more than,
$15,000 and could poten-
tially cost an additional
$33,000 in savings.
Having the item on the
consent agenda did not
make Commissioner Jeff
Carlson happy either.
"We were just kept in the
dark about this," Carlson'
said. "If it had not been'
pulled for discussion, we'
would still be in the dark."
Tim Mechling, of the'
Highlands County Office of
Management and Budget,
told commissioners that
budget revisions were made
because an expected $1.65
million grant from the
Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) was not coming in as
promised.
"The county has only
been issued $758,220 of the
$1.65 million so far,"
Mechling said.
"The $1.6 million is still
there, we are going to get
smaller payments over a
two-year period," Wheeler
said. "The DEP agrees with
our position, it is just the
state agency who issues
checks, they questioned
this."
Landers' e-mail also indi-
cated that the reason that
other disbursements. were
withheld might have been
because of the lack of prop-
er documentation..
"DEP entered into a grant
agreement with Highlands
County for funding to be
provided for this project on
a cost reimbursement basis
upon receipt of invoices
with supporting documenta-'
tion. As the County submits
invoices for this project,
they are reviewed and sub-
mitted to Finance and
Accounting Office for pay-
ment. To date, DEP has
approved . and paid the
County for invoices totaling
$758,220.29,"- Landers
wrote.

Stop at 2183 U. S. 27 North,
is research.
"You have to have a clue,"
he said. "It's just a matter of
knowledge. Make sure you
know to take care of (a new
pet). There is more to it than
just being cute."
Having a pet requires
thinking ahead. Food and
bowls, cages, leashes, treat-
ments to prevent fleas and
ticks are just a short list of
necessities.
Of course it is important to
-know what a potential pet
likes to eat, how much exer-
cise it will need - and who
will provide it - but, it's
equally wise, especially when
buying exotic pets, to know
which animals tolerate being
touched and which do not.
It is also important to pay
attention to one's choice. An
adorable puppy may grow up
to be an 85-pound bouncing
ball of destruction, while an
active kitten grow into a lazy,
slumbering cat.
When buying fish, for
example, it's essential to
match the different types, so
they don't eat other up before
the new year.
Remember that mammals
will require a lot of attention,
and even fish tanks and ter-
rariums require cleaning and
care. Having a pet, in other


words, takes time, effort and
care.
"I get a lot of people giv-
ing up their pets," Antone
said, adding it is only
because those people hadn't
done their homework and bit
off more than they could
chew.
Animal shelters also report
that in the months after
Christmas many families
bring in new dogs and cats
they cannot keep - either
because of the time involved
or the money.
Instead of presenting the
actual animal on Christmas
day, wrap accessories, like a
food bowl or a cage or an
aquarium, so when they are
opened and the recipient asks
why this gift, he or she may
be told there's more to come,
after the excitement dies
down. A card announcing the
gift may also be used.
Another good reason to
wait and let the future pet
owners make their own
choices is that the selection
process should be done by
the pet's main caretaker.
Again, animals are living
things, many with complicat-
ed feelings, and the selection
process is an important part
of the bonding experience.
To chose one's own pet is
like falling in love, to be
given a pet is more like deal-
ing with a marriage broker.

DeSoto City VFD holds toy run

KATARA SIMMONS
Volunteers gather to pray
before the DeSoto City
Volunteer Fire
Department's toy ride
Saturday. This is the
third annual toy ride the
fire department has
organized. Renee Jolliff,
a volunteer firefighter,
came up with the origi-
nal idea. 'We wanted to
give back to the commu-
nity, to the kids,' she
said, adding she is
pleased the run gets big-
ger every year. Sheriff's
deputies led the event,
Jolliff rode at the rear in
the department's brush
truck. About two dozen
participants rode 14
motorcycles in between.

Shoppers hit

area stores in

search of deals
Continued from page 1A
And QVC, which markets products on
television and online, said Black Friday
sales totaled $32 million, up almost 60
percent from last year.
By 5 a.m. at the Walmart in Sebring
every parking place was full, with cars
parked on grass swales.
Despite the crowd, "Everyone out
there' wanted to be there. They were hav-
ing a good time," said one shopper who
asked not to be identified because she
was shopping for family. "A lot of peo-
ple were there for the laptops. They sold
out by the time I left."
About 200 shoppers waited outside K-
mart, which, still closed at 5:30 a.m.,
was late in getting open.
Some people were checking out the
special deals. Some people came just to
experience the energy.
Paul Giroux, seated in the mall sipping
a cup of coffee, enjoyed himself people
watching. "I'm not really a shopper," he
said. "I'm looking."
A few feet away Cayli Watt, who
attends Sebring Middle School, and
Jessica Belcher, who goes to Hill-Gustat
Middle School, were ready to spend
money as they surveyed the selection at
the jewelry kiosk, while Carol Mercer
and her mother, Estella Mattison, picked
out 2010 calendars as gifts.
Bath & Body Works was jammed.
"We're having a wonderful day," said
Linda Mapp, as she was surrounded by
customers with questions.
By noon, Walmart's parking lot was
still busy, but not packed. People kept
arriving steadily, however. Clothing and
electronics were the items most in
demand.
Sebring's Historic Circle was not as
busy, although there were shoppers out.
In Steve & Company, several people
were browsing and buying, including
two friends, Judy McLaughlin of Sebring
and Sharon Depuy from Palm Bay. "I
really came to visit my friend," Depuy
said, "but I just love this shop."
McLaughlin said, "We were laughing
last night. Who would get up at 4 a.m. to
go shopping?"
As Joette Devon wrapped a gift for
McLaughlin, Rhonda Barnes, the store's
owner, couldn't help smiling. "It's going
great," she said.'

Turkey pardon just


part of tradition


A


As I type this, it is the day
before Thanksgiving.
Everything is ready to be
fixed tomorrow, including
my turkey, which sits in the
refrigerator awaiting its date
with the oven.
It is less fortunate than a
forty-five pound turkey
named "Courage." Thanks
to the intervention of
President Obama's daugh-
ters, Courage got a presiden-
tial pardon, along with a trip
to Disneyland.
I can understand the
power of children. I can
almost imagine Sasha and
Malia looking at their dad
with the huge eyes that God
grants young children to
contribute to their cuteness,
begging "Please, Daddy?
Don't kill theturkey!"
The whole thing struck an
amusing chord with. me,
which today was a good
thing. That's because it-
finally hit the part of me that
will forever be a mom that
this will be the first
Thanksgiving that I won't
share with my sons. .
Of course, I knew this
weeks ago. John is working,
and for a variety of reasons
James elected to stay in
Tennessee and have dinner at
John's house. My daughter-
in-law Amanda seems to be
handling James just fine, and
I'm glad they'll be together.
And of course they don't
HAVE to spend
Thanksgiving with me.
They're grown up, and this
is all part of the process, and
it's not like I'd want them
never able to be on their
own.
But even so, I. can't help
feeling just a little bit sad.
To put off the depressing
feelings, I decided to look
into this whole turkey par-
don thing. When did it
become a tradition for a
president to save a turkey
from the dinner table?
I know it wasn't from the
first Thanksgiving. I'm will-
ing to bet that the last thing
the Pilgrims and their guests
had in mind was sparing
food from being eaten. Even
with the bounty they'd been
blessed with, I doubt there
was so much they figured
not to eat some.
A quick bout of research

Laura's
Look
Laura Ware
turned up some interesting
facts. Since 1947, the
National Turkey Federation
and the Poultry Egg and
National Board have present-
ed the President of the
United States a turkey in a
White House ceremony. Do
not ask me why, mayb it
makes for good press, except
for the fact that I had to look
up their names for this col-
umn.
, For years, the turkeys in
question wound up on dinner
plates every year with the
exception of 1963, when
President Kennedy decided
to keep his turkey. It wasn't
until 1989 that the first
President Bush issued the
first official pardon for a
turkey.
Bill Clinton and the
George W. Bush both contin-
ued the tradition, and it
appears that President
Obama has decided not to
stop it. I'm sure Courage is
happy for that..
Is the pardon of a random
turkey somewhat frivolous?
Yeah. Do presidents have
more important things to do?
Can't argue that. Am I going
to go into a rant over this?
Surprisingly, no.
Sometimes, we need a lit-
tle fluff and frivolity in our
lives. Pardoning a turkey the
day before Thanksgiving can
give us that. It's something
to smile about whether we're
in a panic about cooking for
everyone or missing absent
family.
And it also makes us real-
ize that we have far more
blessings to count then
Courage the pardoned turkey
can imagine, even if he is
getting a free trip to
Disneyland.
So I'm all for presidents
pardoning turkeys from now
on. Just as long as everyone
realizes that the one in my
fridge is not escaping its
destiny to the dinner table.
And no one better try to
pardon the apple pie.

dent. She can be contacted by

Mike and Sadie Kahn were first Jewish settlers in Sebring


Continued from page 1A
Elderhostel/Exploritas pro-
gramming, and by Pearl
Carter, a trustee of the
Temple Israel board.
Not.only is there a Jewish
community in Highlands
County, there is also a
Jewish tradition, dating back
to the days of George E.
Sebring.
While Judaism was the
main focus of the program, it
wasn't the only one. The
group also got a hefty taste
of many other facets of
Sebring and the rest of the
county.
The rabbi, who was hired
in June, told about putting
ads in the local newspapers
inviting people to "Meet the
Rabbi."
* "And people came from
everywhere," she said "It
was just a matter of letting
people know. So far, we've
added 25 new members."

A happy coincidence
The program kicked off on
a very appropriate note. On
the evening of their arrival,
the group saw the production
of Highlands Little Theater's
"Fiddler on the Roof." It was
an unexpected event, as the
program had been
announced a year earlier,
prior to the announcement of
the musical.
"I was glad I could fit it in
to their schedule," Rousch
said.

Mike Kahn meets
George Sebring
Leading off the program
the next day was local realtor
Ruth Kahn Davis, talking
about how her parents, Mike
and Sadie Kahn, became the
first Jewish settlers in
Sebring.
Emigrating.from Lithuania,
the Kahns lived in southwest
Georgia for a time, where he
started a department store.
In the early 1920s, after
George E. Sebring had


News-Sun photo by Larry Levey
Dr. Lisa Earle of Sebring shares her life stories with members of an Exploritas group dur-
ing a meeting at Temple Israel. The program was sponsored by South Florida Community
College's Community Education Department.


founded "The City on the
Circle," Mike Kahn happened
to make his way to this grow-
ing town - and liked what
he saw. He rented a store
from Sebring on the ground
floor of the Nan-cess-o-wee
Hotel, then under construc-
tion - and Kahn's
Department Store was born.
"Daddy also told Mr.
Sebring, 'When enough Jews
move to Sebring, we'll build
a synagogue,' Davis said.
"Mr. Sebring then offered
my father a piece of land for
that purpose, just as he did
for other religions all over
Sebring. He was that gener-
ous."
That first synagogue or
temple was built in 1925 on
Orange Street in downtown
Sebring. When it was dam-
aged by a hurricane and had
to be torn down, money from
the sale of the land "paid for
the temple we have now."

Sadie Kahn runs the
groves
Picking up where his sister
left off, Marvin Kahn, vice-
president of the temple
board, shared a number of


stories about Sebring's first
Jewish family, especially
about his own interest in
agriculture.
As he put it, "I'm an
'aggie.' Since I can remem-
ber, I've been interested in
the land and farms and ani-
mals. I had to have a horse "
when I was a youngster."
And he remains an
"aggie." He now owns a
company that manages more
than 3,000 acres of citrus
groves in this area, employ-
ing some 30 people.
"And all this is because of
Sadie Kahn" he said. " She
was my mother, my mentor,
my best friend."
Kahn said his father died
unexpectedly in 1943. "It was
a shock for my mother. She
wasn't ready for him to die.
He was 52 years of age and
in perfect health. Daddy left
Mama with a department
store and about 200 acres of
orange groves.
"My sister, Ruth, had an
interest in the store and she
took over at the tender age of
19 or 20. This is where peo-
ple saved up their money -
or if they didn't have money,
they'd trade a chicken or a


dozen eggs - to get their
clothes.
"Mama took over the
groves. She was famous for
driving a Jeep right in that
deep sand. She used it to put
men to work in the morning,
to check on the fruit, to sell
the fruit."
Kahn said when his mother
ran the groves, she was aided
by several prominent agricul-
tural leaders, including Ben
Hill Griffin, who advised her
about managing the citrus
groves.
"She became a leader in
the community and was
respected by all."

The 'ultimate
survivor'
The group also heard
another member of the
Temple Israel congregation,
Dr. Lisa Earle, telling the sto-
ries of her life.
At the end of her poignant
talk, she summed it up by
saying, "I managed to survive
the violence of the
Holocaust, having lived
under Hitler's regime for one
year and barely escaping with
my life before World War II


closed the exit doors. I sur-
vived the heartbreaks and
losses of not only my mur-
dered parents during the
Holocaust, but later my first
husband and my little daugh-
ter through cancer; and ulti-
mately I survived my own
battle with cancer and now
heart disease."
She also described an
"almost perfect first mar-
riage," singing opera for
seven years, earning a doc-
torate in education, world
travels with her second hus-
band, and her children and
grandchildren - and her
friends.
"I feel," she said, "like I
am the 'ultimate survivor,'
who has tasted the best and
the worst that life can offer."
Commenting on these life
stories told by Davis, Kahn
and Earle, Rousch told the
group that these stories
reflect "the power of the per-
sonal story. We can learn his-
tory, we can read the books,
but it's just 'stuff.' But when
someone opens their heart
' and talks from the heart
about their personal experi-
ences, it all becomes real."

Rap with the Rabbi
During her talks with the
group, Rabbi Rudenberg said
she has seen many newcom-
ers to this area, including
seniors, new retirees and
young couples with families.
"It becomes a juggling act,"
she said, "to make the service
good for the old people and
good for the younger peo-
ple."
Also, she pointed out, most
people in the community are
from somewhere else and
they all are used to different
traditions, different ways of
doing things. "My challenge
is to make the services and
the congregation all work
together, to give something to
everyone. I can teach a class
or hold a service. We've
added a Saturday morning
service because some people


don't like driving at night."
The rabbi also spoke of
Judaism's longevity.
"Judaism has survived
because it's always remained
authentic but also changeable
ai,. relevant. Your Judaism is
not the same Judaism as your
p.,,n nt or your grandpar-
ents."
"Our job is to combine his-
tory with the modem world.
Judaism has become a way of
life, how we live. The center
of Judaism is our belief in
one God, the unique unity.
We're placed here with a
spark of the divine in each of
us - and we are God's part-
ners. We do the handwork,
with our legs and our arms
and the love in our hearts.
We do the things in the world
that God put us here for, to
take care of the world, to
take care of each other."

Rave reviews
Along with this focus on
Judaism, the visitors enjoyed
a wide range of experiences,
ranging from a behind-the-
scenes tour of Highlands
Little Theater; entertainment
by Cracker Cowboy Poet
Hank Mattson of Lake Placid
and by HLT's Gladhatters; a
walking tour of downtown
Sebring and a guided tour of
the restored Sebring Fire
Station; and video tours of
the Lake Wales Ridge and of
Lake Placid's caladium
industry and mtirals.
The Exploritas folks gave
high marks to their four-day
stay
In fact, the whole group -
now calling themselves
"Becky's Bunch" - is plan-
ning to return next year for a
reunion and for more tastes
of central Florida.
And co-organizer Carter,
who was also a cast member
of "Fiddler on the Roof,"
echoed that feeling by say-
ing, "I am 'gung ho' for
doing this again next year."

Heart care in the Heartland just got
a lot more exciting


Things are looking up for heart care in the Heartland.
Thanks to the opening of our Cardiac Cath Lab, our experienced
interventional specialist and cardiac team now have advanced technology
in the fight against heart disease.

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

This newest lifesaving procedure is the next step in our longtime
commitment to the prevention, diagnosis and rapid treatment of heart
disease. It's also part of our broader mission to deliver physical,
spiritual and emotional healing in a safe, caring environment.
We're raising expectations for heart care sky high.

Participants in the Heartland Horses & Handicapped Ride-A-Thon were treated to a tour
through an unspoiled part of Florida.

Annual HHH Ride-A-Thon

draws crowd, raises money


Special to the News-Sun
ZOLFO SPRINGS - Cool
breezes, knickers and neighs,
hoof beats, and laughter
could mean only one thing -
Heartland Horses &
Handicapped's Saddle-Up
Ride-A-Thon.
Hosted by Mike & Betsy
Damboise at the Cracker
Trail Arena in Zolfo Springs
on Nov. 14, horseback riders
from North Florida to Miami
joined together in support of
Heartland Horses' free
equine interaction and riding
program for children and
adults with disabilities.
Riders were guided
through 1,800 beautiful acres
of ranch lands that were a
glimpse back into the Florida
only a few remember - no


pavement, just nature,
wildlife and grazing animals.
Many of the riders are regu-
lar participants in the HHH
rides, so coming together to
support this cause also gives
time to reconnect with
friends made on trails past.
Those who attended were
able to try their luck at win-
ning door prizes, bidding on
auction items and enjoying a
lip smacking smoked rib and
chicken dinner by Perry &
Perry Cookouts.
The evening wrapped up
with music by Branded Heart
& Circle J Ministries. Those
,who camped woke up Sunday
morning and were able to
ride their horses to church
where Cowboy Up Ministry
provided a horse training


demonstration with biblical
principles.
With deep gratitude,
Heartland Horses &
Handicapped wishes to thank
all who attended and the ride
sponsors who helped make
this event possible: the
Sebring Kiwanis Club, Joe L.
Realty, and Farm Credit of
S.W. Florida.
Also thank you to Florida
Hospital for donating bottled
water for all of the partici-
pants and Skipper Calder of
Cowboy Up Ministry for his
help throughout the weekend.
Heartland horses &
Handicapped Inc. was able to
raise $4,000 to assist in the
cost of providing a free ther-
apeutic riding program which
serves the Heartland area.

Screening to view wall motion, valves, enlargements, calcifications,
stenosis, prolapse, blood clots, tumors and fluid around the heart

Q. How accurate are these health screenings?
I A. Our adherence to stringent protocol, highly trained sonographers, state-of-
the-art ultrasound machines, and board certified interpreting radiologists make
the screenings exceedingly accurate. Physician written protocols ensure
I consistency and accuracy.
Q. Why should I have these tests if I have no symptoms?
I A. It is important to have a screening to identify problems before symptoms
arise, potentially avoiding a serious health crisis. Unfortunately, our body's
warning signs often come too late.
No prescriptions necessary. International customers welcome.
Ultrasound can find smaller & more curable cancers, before you have
symptoms. Board-certified physician reads all tests and only registered
sonographers perform exams.

Homeowner, 70,
fatally shoots man
found in truck
CLERMONT - The
Lake County Sheriff's
Office says a 70-year-old
homeowner fatally shot a
man he found hiding in
his truck.
According to a news
release, Russell Conrad
told authorities that 32-
year-old Steve Hilson
approached him, in a
threatening manner. The
sound of his truck's horn
early Saturday morning
woke Conrad, who then
grabbed his gun and
headed outside. Conrad
realized Hilson, a sus-
pected burglar, was in the
truck when horn blared
again.
Conrad ordered Hilson
out of the truck and fired
when Hilson walked
toward him.

widening, the wall impedes the building of a
sidewalk up to code.
The city alleges that the wall is on the right
of way, and the homeowner claims the wall
was permitted and inspected when it was
build in the early 1990s, and was up to code
at that time.
According to the homeowner, removing the
wall would cause additional problems with
the. grade of the, front yard since the wall
retains almost four foot of back fill to make
the ground level with the house.
Fence placement can be a considerable
safety issue, especially along busy streets
where traffic speeds are high, according to
the Florida Department of Transportation.
Additionally, council also asked during its
Nov. 17 meeting that chain link fences in
front yards be prohibited all together.
To remedy the visibility issue, the Planning
and Zoning Board reaffirmed the need for a
"visibility triangle" that includes limiting the
height of fences and plants at intersections.
Plantings will be allowed in the visibility
triangle that are less than two-and-a-half feet
tall, and all fences in the front yard are limit-


ed to five feet tall.
Fences in the side or rear areas are limited
to six feet in height, unless adjacent to a non-
residential property, then fences can be up to
eight feet tall.
For driveways, a 10-foot visibility triangle
is established, and at intersections, a 15-foot
triangle has to be reserved if posted speed
limit is 35 miles per hour.
At intersections with speed limits that
exceed 35 miles per hour, a 25-foot triangle
has to be observed.
The measurements have to be taken from
the corner of the intersection, or driveway,
and go but the determined length in each
direction.
An imaginary line is then drawn at the end
of each measurement across the yard to the
other measurement end.
The ordinance for setbacks for side yards
will also have a second reading during the
meeting, and for property zoned R-lA a
seven-and-a-half feet buffer must be
observed.
All measurements for side yards are taken
from the property lines, and dictates that
buildings or other structures cannot be within
the setback.

FHREDI, county still at odds


Continued from page 1A
told fellow commissioners
that he was not comfortable
sitting on a board of an
organization with repeated
material weaknesses in its
audit findings and that had
been accused of misreporting
funds.
Additionally, Carlson's
questions about how the
funding would be spent went
unanswered during the Aug.
18 meeting when FHREDI
officials told him that their
financial information and
funding information was not
a public record.
"How can you sit there and
ask for money, and not tell us
what it's for?" Carlson asked


FHREDI representatives dur-
ing that meeting.
FHREDI is a corporation
developed to help coordinate
projects that cover a large
region in central Florida, and
it currently seeking a stimu-
lus grant for funds to run
county-wide optic fiber.
In a letter dated Nov. 20,
Ronald Neads, chairman of
the FHREDI board of direc-
tors, stated that it was his
"responsibility to notify
highlands County of ourby-
laws concerning support pay-
ments."
And those by-laws state
that "any county or commu-
nity that is more than 60 days
in arrears in making sched-
uled payment...shall automat-


ically forfeit its right to nom-
inate candidates."
"I understand that at the
Highlands County BOCC
meeting on November 17 the
Commission did not vote to
release your funds in support
of FHREDI," Neads wrote.
"Highlands County is the
only county to question the
accountability of our
accountant and auditor,"
Neads wrote.
According to the stated by-
'laws, Highlands County must
pay the $10,020 due 'to
FHREDI, and must be
approved for reinstatement
by the board before another
nomination can serve on the
FHREDI board of directors.

PUBLIC NOTICE

All interested parties within Hardee, Highlands, and
Okeechobee Counties are hereby advised that the Central Florida
Regional Planning Council is applying to the Florida Department of
Transportation for a capital grant under Section 5310 of the Federal
Transit Act of 1991, as amended, for the purchase of two wheelchair
accessible vehicles at an approximate cost of $40,952 per vehicle to
replace vehicles currently used for the provision of public transit
services within the three county area.

A public hearing has been scheduled for December 9, 2009 at
9:30 a.m. at the John Brenneman Auditorium, Polk County Extension
Service and Agricultural Center, 1702 US Hwy 17 S., Bartow, FL 33830.
The public hearing will be held during the regular monthly meeting of
the Central Florida Regional Planning Council. The public hearing is
for the purpose of advising all interested parties of service being
planned for if a grant is awarded, and to ensure that planned services
would not represent a duplication of current or proposed services
provided by existing transit or paratransit operators in the area.

This hearing will be conducted if, and only if, a written request
for the hearing is received by 4:00 p.m. on December 4, 2009.

Requests for a hearing must be addressed to Marcia Staszko,
Central Florida Regional Planning Council, 555 E. Church Street,
Bartow, FL 33830 (863) 534-7130, and a copy sent to Mr. Terry

and peace in Africa. In
recent years, Uganda has
been subjected to armed
fighting among hostile eth-
nic groups, rebels, armed
gangs, militias and various
government forces that
extend across its borders.
Uganda is a host to hundreds
of thousands of regional
refugees.
Exercise officials said the
exercise partner nations
have extremely capable mil-
itary organizations and that
American and African mili-
taries are actively learning
from each other.
Through experiences
here, Abt developed his own
impressions of Ugandan cul-
ture. "The people here live
simple lives and believe in
family, community and the
love of the land. The sky and
sunrises are like no other.
The tradition of their song
and dance is an amazing
choreography. The many
huts and simple structures
are very interesting and a
life we would never see in
America," Abt said.
Abt arrived in Africa with
expertise based on his mili-
tary career. He has complet-
ed 21 years of military serv-
ice, including a deployment,
to the Middle East.

Young team plays great season


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Members of the Sebring Thunderbolts, a Flag division football team playing in the Mid-
Florida Football and Cheerleader Conference, chow down with a celebratory pizza party fol-
lowing a winning regular season and a play off series that almost led to the conference's
Super Bowl. That's Beau Riley eating the pizza slice, Valen Tomblin at the window and
Dy'Jari Holdman picking up a slice from the tray.


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tuffley@newssun.com
SEBRING - They may
not be much over three feet
tall, but the Sebring
Thunderbolts - a football
team in the flag division of
the Mid-Florida Football and
Cheerleader Conference -
played so well this season
they ended it just two games
shy of playing in the confer-
ence's Super,bowl..
. Given that 2009 was only
the second year the team has
played together, and that the
players are five, six and
seven years of age, that is
quite a feat.
In fact, the Thunderbolts
lost only two games during


the 10-game regular season,
in several cases rolling over
their competition.
For example, they
trounced the Mulberry
Panthers 41-6; the DeSoto
Bulldogs 31-6; and the Ft.
Meade Miners 24- 0.
They also had the grit to
sweat through the tough
games, taking the Lakeland
Lumberjacks 26-25; and the
Bartow Yellow Jackets 19-
18.
Only the Kissimmee
Kowboys, by a score of 21-
12; and the Avon Park Red
Devils by a score of 18-14,
bested them.
Ironically, the two defeats
were the team's only home


games.
Head coach Jim Baker
couldn't be prouder of his
young athletes.
"Practice started Aug. 5,"
he said. "Kids practiced two
days a week until the season
started then had a game every
Saturday morning too, until
the end of the season in
October."
Then there. were the play-
off games.
The Thunderbolts were not
eliminated until Nov. 11,
when the Avon Park Red
Devils again edged them out,
this time at Haines City, by a
score of 24-22.

High hopes for Heartland boxer


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
Boxing is more than lac-
ing up some gloves and hav-
ing at it.
It is, after all, called the
'sweet science' for a reason,
and as in any discipline of
science, years of training are
required to get to the top of
ones field.
Well, the Heartland has a
boxer, who even at the ten-
der age of 15 has the years
under his belt - or make that
the various championship
belts he has won. '
Ruben Ozuna, of
Wauchula, has been training
in the ring since the ever
more tender age of four.
"My father boxed, and he
really got me started," he
said. I1 wasn't sure about it
at first, but I just remember
that the more I got into the
ring, the more I enjoyed it."
Arid hd' showed promise
early on, so much so that he
caught the eye of
trainer/coach Troy Carter,
who has roots in the
Philadelphia boxing scene
and has had some proteges
become professionals. -
"I could see he had the
tools and that he enjoyed it,"
Carter said. "But it was hard
to tell if he was good. In
Florida, you have to be 8
years old before you can
actually start fighting. By
then, while most of his
opponents were just starting
out, he had four ears- of
training and e'r.,ricrne, so
he had an unt'aii ddaniage "
So maybe those early
Florida State Championships
can be .put into some per-
spective.
But the ability and train-
ing have kept 'him on top,
and not just in the state,


where he is now the seven-
time champion.
Various other tournaments
throughout the country have
taken his skill to a new level,
shown him new sights and
delivered more belts.
"I won the nationals in
October, winning three
fights," Ozuna said. "The
second fight I beat Lamont
Roach, who won the Worlds
and is the No. 1 rated boxer
in my weight class."
And sure, waking up at 4
a.m. and training until 6:30
a.m. at Arcadia's "Tramps to
Champs" boxing club,
before Carter takes him to
school, and then picks him
up for more training after
school, can be trying at
times, but it is all part of the
discipline - and the payoff is
not just in boxing.
"He's a straight-A stu-
dent," Carter said. "And
there was one morning
recently, where I had a hard
time waking up. He got up
and headed off without me
to go start his training for
the day."
And it's such moments
that show it's not a forced
labor, but a labor of love.
A labor that has a hefty
goal he is shooting for in the
very near future - taking a
shot at the 2012 Olympics.
"He can go to the trials
next year, when he's 16,"
Carter said. "And the goal
would be for him to be the
youngest boxer ever to make
the Olympic team and be in
'the Games at 18.
"I've had a couple other
fighters go pro, but Ruben's
ahead of where they were at
' his age," he continued. "But
there's still a lot of work to
do. I want him to be the
complete package - able to

trainer/coach Troy Carter of the "Trmmp. tio Champs" boxing club in Arcadia.


go up and down, back and
forth, power in both hands."
He seems to be a good
portion of the way there, but
in an unusual way.
"I'm right handed, but I
have more power with my
left and that catches some of
my opponents off guard,"
Ozuna said. "That makes it
hard for them to adjust to
me."
But overall, for Ozuna and


Cartir hiith, it's bout what
can be accomplished.
S"I think he can be a great
boxer. but he could be
jrememtnired." Carter said.
'Jusi bh ,euing there he
wouldd he :in example of
where,,, hard ;work can get
you., .il then to ha\e an
impact. like lMulhamnmadi
Ali, .oc .illy, to reach that
position .i1d make a differ-
ence I'.


"He is a great kid and he's
like a son to me," he contin-
ued. "If he wanted to quit
tomorrow, that would be his
choice and he'd still be like
a son to me, I just wouldn't
be training him anymore."
But don't expect that to

concerned about the quality of today
teenagers, fear not, because if these fine
young men and women are any example of
the hands our future is in, the future is look-
ing good. The golfers, and Legionnaires


were so impressed with the personalities,
politeness, character and eagerness of each
one that showed up 'to help in such a big
way.
Burke and the Legion decided that the
proceeds from this outing would go to the
ROTC and are looking forward to the bene-
fit spaghetti dinner the young cadets are
going to cook at the Post in January.
The Cadets showed in every way what a
fabulous job that is done with these well-
trained ROTC groups and the Legion sin-
cerely hopes that the community will appre-
ciate and support them whenever possible.

The Platt Family: Building a cattle

ranch in rural central Florida


Adapting to the scrub
environment in an isolated
area was a challenge for
pioneer ranchers, but in a
rural community everyone
helps out. But it was not all
work as local families par-
ticipated in rodeos, square
dances and roundups.
John Platt met his wife,
Rennie "Ben" Whaley of
St. Cloud, on one of these
occasions but "we didn't
eye each other until we
were in our teens."
"After I graduated from
Melbourne High in 1950,"
Platt explains, "I opened a
grocery store and ran it for
three years. Then I built
Platt's Super Market in
West Melbourne in 1954. In
1958, I added an addition
to the store for Western
Wear (boots, hats, saddles
and western clothing). I had
tile store until 1989 then
sold it to Shane, our son,
and his wife Carol."
"In 1982, a partner and I
opened a car dealership in
Eufaula, Ala. I owned 75
percent of it. It was good
for us. In 1984, I bought
cattle and leased a ranch
between Sebastian and
Fellsmere, a total of 7,500
acres. My lease was broken
id 1990 and I had 60 days

to get rid of 1,150 head of
cattle in December and
January. That ranch was
named J&S Cattle (John
and Shane). It was good for
us. We started out with 300
cows and calves and wound
up with 1.150. All paid
for."
As a long-time cattle
rancher living on their
1,000-acre ranch 12 miles
from Zolpho Springs, the
Platts practice a simple and
straight-forward lifestyle
based on the philosophy:
"Live a clean, Christian
life, go to work to make a
living."
"We have two children,
Shane, who is one of the
Vice Presidents and
Property Appraiser for
Farm Credit in Lakeland
and Sherri is a Melbourne
Realtor," Platt said.
How does Platt plan to
preserve the land and the
ranch as urbanization grad-
ually closes inland from
both coasts? "If I sold the
land, I couldn't find any
better place better to live.
Cattle people are stewards


of the land. We protect as
much as we can. We do not
put anything on our ranch
that is detrimental to the
future."
As far as opening new
markets worldwide for
Florida cattle, Platt believes
"we need more outlets.
There is a move to open
markets in Korea and
Japan. Right now, I raise
cross-bred Hereford, Angus
and Charolais and sell them
through Producers
Livestock Auction (on line
cattle auction) and the
Okeechobee Livestock
Market. We still brand our
cattle 'JP' for me, 'D' for
Ben, 'LSX' for Sherri, our
daughter, 'JS Cross' for
Shane, 'S over J' for
Joshua, our grandson, and
'SJ' for our granddaughter,
Jenna.
"It has been a great life
for all of us and sometimes
a lot of fun!"

Keep your cat inside


to help protect birds


Welcome to our roost!
Rather than sketch one of
our Highlands County wild
birds today, we have decided
it was about time we alerted
our readers to the various
threats to the well-being of
our fine feathered friends.
Most of us know that bird
baths left for days without
cleaning will form a danger-
ous mold which can sicken
birds and will even begin to
harbor mosquitoes that can
be a threat to humans as well
as our birds. The solution is
simple: scrub the bird bath
with a brass o'r stiff bristle
brush and rinse with a mild
solution of bleach and water;
rinse carefully and refill bird
bath with clean water.
We believe that a well-
maintained bird bath is even
more important than a well-
stocked bird feeder. Bird
'baths should be put on a reg-
ular clean up schedule and
execute at least twice per
week.
Bird feeders can become
lethal to our wild birds if the
seed is allowed to get moldy.
After heavy rains, bird feed-
ers should be emptied and
cleaned with the usual mild
solution of bleach and water,
left to dry well, then refilled.
Do not throw the old seed on
the ground where ground-
feeding birds such as doves,
towhees and'bobwhites will
find the seed. It makes sense
to discard moldy bird feed
into the household garbage
receptacle for disposal.
It is never a good idea to
spread moldy bread out for
our wild birds. Just another
common-sense rule that we
should follow. Moldy bead
can be as lethal as moldy
bird feed!
Cars and trucks kill thou-
sands of birds. Birds die by
the thousands by flying into


Birds & Other
Wild Things

communications towers,
buildings, windows, electric
generating wind turbines and
other structures. By the way,
it has now been determined
that hundreds of night-flying
bats are being killed by these
"wind turbine farms."
The cell phone towers are
a particular cause of bird
killings and slowly but sure-
ly the towers will come
under more regulation as to
illumination and height,
however, getting the industry
to comply is very difficult.
Most of us can't do much
about the threats just men-
tioned, but we can do some-
thing about one of the great-
est threats to our wild bird
population, and that is free
roaming cats!
It is well documented that
all cats - well-fed tabbies
or feral ones - will hunt
and kill birds. This is an
instinct that has never been
bred out of cats. The urge to
hunt and the urge to eat are
controlled by different por-
tions of a cat's brain, so a
cat is driven to hunt even
when it is not hungry. Birds
are not the only animals tak-
ing a hit from predation by
domestic cats, as there is
evidence that small mam-
mals, such as squirrels, baby
opossums and rabbits are
also affected.
Domestic cats are physi-
cally and instinctively
equipped to be among the
most highly successful
hunters on earth. Cats have
claws, sharp teeth, the abili-
ty to stalk prey quietly and
slink in low profile. Couple
all that with the cats' instinc-
tive attention to movement

by both pet and feral cats.


and drive to take 'prey and it
would be hard to improve on
the cats' designif engineers
tried to create ia hunting
machine.
The solution of course is
simple - keep Tabby
indoors. A cat owner who
places a bell around the cat's
neck is not doing wildlife
any favors! Cats with bells
can move without the bells
producing any noticeable
sound while stalking prey.
And furthermore, the cat
could get hung-up by the
bell strap on a branch or
fence and die a slow death.
There are documented,
reliable studies niade in this
country and England, verify-
ing the threat posed to
wildlife, especially birds, by
free-roaming pet cats and
feral cats and therefore, all
of us who love our cats and
want to continue seeing our
wild birds come to our bird-
baths and feeders should
make sure to keep Tabby
indoors.
At this time, we would
like our readers to make spe-
cial note of the upcoming
Archbold-Audubon Lake
Placid Christmas Bird
Count, scheduled to take
place on Wednesday, Dec.


30.
On that day, participants
will attempt to count every
bird Within a 15-mile diame-
ter, "Count Circle" centered
in Lake Placid. This will be
the 23rd year anniversary of
this important birding activi-
ty. Counting birds at your'
back yard feeders and/or
neighborhood is another way
to participate. If you would
like to help, please contact
Helen Obenchain at 465-
2468 or Gayle Taylor at 699-
1.316 by Wednesday, Dec. 9.
Until next time, we wish
you all great birding adven-
tures and please call us with
us your bird and wildlife
sightings and we will make
sure to mention it in this
forum. Get out and enjoy the
Creator's gift to us all - the
splendid and wonderful natu-
ral world around us! Call

Audubon guides


go mobile


Special to the News-Sun
The best-selling series of
National Audubon Society
field guide books have gone
mobile, putting the most
authoritative and comprehen-
sive birding information at
the fingertips of iPhone
and iPod Touch users.
The Audubon Guide bird
app provides a wealth of
interactive information in a
mobile package, giving bird
lovers a fun and exciting
experience that makes bird
watching richer, more
informed and instantly
sharable.
The bird app along with
others in the Audubon Guides
series is now available in the
reference sectiQn of the apps
store in iTunes.
"Mobile platforms allow
field guides to be used to
explore nature in fun and
interactive ways that are not
possible with printed books,"
said Andrew Stewart, pub-
lisher of Green Mountain
Digital, the electronic pub-
lishing company that created
the Audubon Guide app
series in alliance with the
National Audubon Society.
"Features like bird calls,
GPS-location and the ability
to share outings with family
and friends are just a few fin-
ger taps away.
"These new apps trans-
form field guides as we know
them."
From chickadees to con-
dors, the Audubon Guide bird
app covers more than 740
species of birds with infor-
mation on appearance, habi-
tat, behavior, diet, nesting,
mating, migration, endan-
gered status and more.
Features include thousands
of professional color photos,
more than 2,200 bird sounds,
and range maps for each
species.
Every species in the app is


described with rich and
detailed information updated
from the book versions: all
accessed wirelessly and
in real time through elegant,
interactive and intuitive
search features.
Search parameters include
common and scientific
names, family, shape, range,
habitat, color, and size.
"This is a giant leap for-
ward in connecting people
with the nature that surrounds
them," said John Flicker,
president of the National
Audubon Society.
"And it's the first step in
building a commitment to
protecting the wonders this
app will help a new genera-
tion discover and savor."
The apps' geo-location
search features also allow
users to find which bird
species are located in any zip
code, state or region.
A universal dashboard
enables navigation back and
forth between species infor-
mation, search functions,
sightings, and more.
When loaded onto a user's
iPhone, the apps work inde-
pendently of cell phone con-
nectivity.
Other innovative functions
include the ability to create
personalized life lists, post
GPS-enabled bird sighting
lists, and upload user-created
photo albums.
The Audubon Guide bird
app is supported
by AudubonGuides.com , a
free companion Web site that
syncs with the app, providing
a lifetime of automatic
updates.
The Web site features all of
the comprehensive subject
matter found on the app, as
well as scientific news, user
forums, articles and blog
posts contributed by national-
ly recognized scientists and
naturalists.

Q 0










www.newssun.comn News-Sun * Sunday, November 29, 2009



Enjoy every moment this week,


Cancer, no matter what happens


Aries (March 21-April 20) - You are
all wound up, Aries, and may need to
blow off some steam. How about a trip to
the gym, or even a heated debate with
someone? Just don't let any tempers
flare.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) -You have
a job to do, Taurus, but you may not be
exactly sure what that job is. Don't worry
about losing your focus. You'll regain it
by the end of the week.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) - Opinions
are largely useful, but this week they can
alienate you when you offer your two
cents, Gemini. You want to reinforce
your similarities to others, not turn them
against you.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) - Give
yourself permission to enjoy every
moment this week, Cancer, no matter
what happens. You deserve a little unbri-
dled satisfaction in your days.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) - Leo, you're
not likely to see others clearly today
because your perceptions are very jaded.
It's good to be" optimistic, but don't be


fHOROSCOPE

foolish in your choices.
Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) - It's not
easy to keep your energy levels up this
week, Virgo. But don't question your
motivation or apparent energy stores.
You'll muddle through somehow.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Sometimes
reaching the truth is worth the extra
effort, Libra, even if you are afraid of
what you may discover. Gemini offers
some inspiration in your life.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Scorpio,
you are feeling a little out of sorts and
trapped in a spell this week. You must
play detective and get to the bottom of
the "mood." Then the situation will be
managed.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
- Setting a reasonable pace at work this
week enables you ,to accomplish more
than you expect. Prior to any project it


helps to have all of your tools in order.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) - You
lack the necessary clarity to make an
important financial decision, Capricorn.
Seek out others who are knowledgeable
and can help you find the answers.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) -
Aquarius, you may get a strong taste of
inspiration this week, Aquarius. It may
almost seem like you are floating into the
clouds. Come back to earth to put your
plans in action.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) - There is
magic brewing in your mind, Pisces, but
others are not clued into your thoughts.
Let your imagination run wild.

Notable birthdays
Nov. 29: Jonathan Knight, singer, 41:
Nov. 30: Billy Idol, singer, 54; Dec. 1:
Bette Midler, actress, 64; Dec. 2: Nelly
