SEBRING Passers-by could be
forgiven if they thought Thursday
night was a big game night at Sebring
High School. The parking lot was full
to the point of overflow.
'But the action Thursday wasn't in
the gym, it was at the Smith Center
where fifth-graders from all nine pub-
lic elementary schools gathered to
show off their science projects and
bask in the glow of admiration for
hard work.
It was the 4th Annual HAART


Elementary Science Fair, and the cen-
ter was not only packed, it tinglecl
with excitement and energy.
HAART stands for Highlands
Advariced Academics Rising Together.
Gail Malendy, district science
resource teacher, said approximately
250 students took part in the fair -
with the 10 HAART classes from the
nine elementary schools averaging 25
students per class.
In order to teach students about sci-
entific method, each HAART fifth
grader had to design a real experil
inent, based on a hypothesis. The


experiment had to be documented,
revealing materials used and actions
taken. Data had to be posted and a
conclusion drawn.
Then the students created presenta-
tions summarizing their work. It was
the presentations which were on dis-

plaody Shore of Fred Wild
Elementary School did an experiment
about hot air balloons. Jill Carter, also
of Fred Wild, observed fertilizer.

SEBRING Three
themes emerged during a
prayer service for Haiti held
at the Florida Hospital
Heartland Division Friday >
evening: The unimaginable
suffering and loss; the strong
belief that God has a higher
purpose in mind; and an
astonishment and awe at how
resilient the Haitian people
have proven to be.
Three speakers, two just
arrived back from the strick-
en island, one whose wife is
helping direct relief efforts ,
there, spoke of the condi- .
tions.
"The needs are huge," said
Pastor Roland Brise, whose
wife Nicole Brise was in
Haiti at the time of the earth-
quake and stayed to help.
"What we see (on television)
is nothing compared to the
reality."
SHe described makeshift
tent cities and intravenous
tubing hanging from trees as
.the injured lay outside.
Daphnee Moise is an
emergency room~ physician.
with Florida Hospital, origi-
nally from Haiti with family
there-
Moise said she had trou-
ble, at first, taking in the
truth-
She was at home having
juist awakened to get ready
for her mid-night shift at the
hospital when the news came
over the television.
She simply couldn't
believe it. In fact, she
refused to believe it, until a
cousin called to say some
Family were fine, but others
were not. A cousin's wife
and young daughter were
known to be trapped, their
voices audible under the rub-
ble.
That's when reality
crashed mn, and suddenly'
Moise couldn't bear to be
still. She had to get to Haiti.
As a physician she had to be
useful, and if not, she could
always help dig, carry water,
anything.
The trip was a difficult
one. Fying to Puerto Rico'
then to Sahto Domingo, then
drivmngto the border.
Once in Haiti she first got
a ride on a motorcycle, then


had to walk, was picked up
by a cattle truck, and finally
walked the last two hours
into the city.
It was during the last two
hours that the destruction
began to manifest itself.
Houses were collapsed
-spiles of humble. "The bod-
ies," Meise said, "were
everywhere -- children, i.~ 1
babies, women, men, whole
families. And the smell, the
smell ."
Walking another hour and
a half to the flatteeied house


of her cousin, the neivs was
.not good.
'Four bodies had already
been pulled from th~e wreck-
age-and voices were no
longer he~ard. Men worked
with hammers and chisels,
Moise~ said, at an almost
impossible task. In the mid-
dle of the night a back-hoe
was found and the rubble
cleared.
Moise's relatives were
found dead at the foot of a

ment through the Florida
Back to Work program being
administered locally by
Heartland Workforce. This
federally funded program is
open to Florida residents
with a household income of
less than two hundred percent
of the' poverty level, and who
have a dependent, age 18
years or under, living. in the
household.
Income levels are deter-
mined using only the past 30
days of total family income.
"That provides for a broader
window of opportunity for a
number of job seekers," said
Roger Hood, president and
CEO of Heartland
Workforce .
"No matter what a person's
wages were in a previous job,
if an individual has been
unemployed for at least 30
days, they should come into
one of the local One-Stop
Career Centers to allow staff
to determine their eligibility
to compete for one of these
newly created positions."
During the initial phase of
the program, several employ-
ers from the tri-county area
of DeSoto, Hardee and
Highlands contacted


Heartland Workforce and
were interested in hiring
workers to fill approximately
50 new jobs they would be
creating.
These positions are tenta-
tively scheduled to be filled
with a starting date of March
1, 2010. The program will
run through September 30,
2010.
According to Hdiod, the
local One-Stop Career Center
staff will determine a per-
son's eligibility to participate
in the program and 'the
employers will make the final
hiring decision based on the
skill requirements of the sub-
sidized job. The inteilt of the
program is to help businesses
in their efforts to recover and
expand and not to subsidize
an employer's existing work-
force. The jobs to be filled
are with employers firom a
variety of both public and
private-sector industries, and
positions range from entry
level to those requiring spe-
cialized skills.
Anyone who thinks they-
might be qualified for this
program or any employers
interested in obtaining more
information should contact~

people sleep through the night~
with no problem breathing.
People with sleep apnea aren't
so lucky. The muscles in our
breathing~ passages relax a wee
bit too much, meaning they do
so to the extent they close
things off.
The body responds to the sit-
uation by forcing the person to
rouse or even wake up in order
to breathe. This happens often
enough that it wrecks normal
sleep patterns.
If you want to be scared
about the situation, the website
www.cpap.com will tell you
(among other things) that
untreated sleep apnea can lead
to things like strokes or heart
attacks. In other words, it's not
a good condition to have.

U.S. Constitution
Sometimes, going back and re-
reading something, then reading it a
third and possibly a fourth time is
all it takes.
I was up in arms about the Feb. 5,
2010 editorial in which you discuss
what has become the topic du jour
of Sunday's Super Bowl. .
In that editorial, you state, "He
(Tim Tebow) has a right to shout his
beliefs at the height of television
viewing, and so does (Gloria)
Allred."
Tebow being the star quarterback
for University of Florida and Allred
a feminist and abortion activist. The
issue: a 30-second commei-cial
sponsored by Focus On the Family, .
a Christi an-Conservative activist
group, details Tebow's mother's
refusal to follow a doctor-recom-
mended abortion during a compli-
cated pregnancy.
The legacy of that decision lives
on.
My gut reaction was that neither
Tebow nor Allred have any right to
shout anything "at the height of tel.
vision viewing" during the Super


ever we want, whenever we want -
the First Amendment (not some-
thing specifically mentioned but
certainly alluded to in the editorial)
only protects an individual's right
from persecution by government for
certain types of speech, commonly
accepted as political speech but
many would extend that to any
speech in various forms from T-
shirts to Instant Messaging none
of us have an inherent, inalienable
right to say anything we want on
CBS, any other network, in the
News-Sun or on a T-shirt. *
CBS leases the airwaves from the
taxpayers via the Federal
Communications Commission. This
relationship conveys certain rights
and responsibilities. One of the
rights retained by the corporation is
to determine its own advertising
policy.~It is through advertising that
CBS collects a significant portion of
its revenue. The network, and oth-
ers, take calculated risks in select-
ing which advertisers (and their cor-
responding deep pockets) to wel-
come with open or arms, or to turn
away with a polite "Thanks, but no
thanks ."
Refuse too many advertisers and
a network not only loses revenue,
but risks alienating certain demo-
graphics and builds a reputation it
may or may not want. The same
goes for advertising it does accept.

But, then I re-read the News-Sun -
piece.
Nowhere in that excerpt or the
editorial as a whole did you quggest
that Tebow (or Allred, for that mat-
ter) have a right to 'shout their
beliefs at the height of TV viewing
on CBS.'
That is, or should have been, the
crux of the editorial's 'argument.
The issue playing out before us
(though it appears a done deal) is
CBS' freedom of speech. Do they
have a right to air messages they
back or feel comfortable with and,
in the same vein, do they have a
right to refuse messages that rub
them the wrong way? No pun
intended, but CBS refused to air an

that the News-Sun would miss the

Bonini and Joshua Eason looked into
electromagnets. The students took nails
and wrapped them with different
amounts of copper wire and then added
battery power. Their experiments
showed that a nail wrapped by 25 cop-
per coils picked up the most paper
clips.
Harley Altman and Briana Lee, also
from Park Elementary, did an experi-
ment they called Friction Finder.
Comparing tennis shoes, Crocs and
barefoot, the girls measured which
shoe made it easiest to run.
They each ran three trials for each
shoe. To their surprise the tennis shoe
'didn't help with speed in fact, they
ran slowest when wearing them. It
turned out running barefoot was
fastest.
Fred Wild's Jessica Hamilton looked
into mold growth. She compared con-
tainers, each holditig a quarter of a
slice of bread and a cherry tomato. She
wanted to know; how is mold affected
by temperature.
"I couldn't really prove temperaturee
affects niold growth) because I didn't
have a long enough time," Jessica said.
She added, however, that she was sure
that warmer temperatures caused more
mold, because her samples kept on the
kitchen counter had grown more mold
in the same time compared to the sam-
ples kept in the refrigerator.
Katie Dye from Park Elementary,
shot water-propelled rockets into the
air. Her goal was to find the optimum
amount of water for the highest flight,

A visitor looking at her presentation

prison with digging out new
fill dirt and discovered that it
was just $.75 cents per ton to
reprocess their contaminated
soil compared to the approxi-
mately $2 per ton to dig up
new dirt," Wheeler said.
When asked why the coun-
ty was considering such a
controversial undertaking,
Wheeler responded that the
decision was based on rev-
enue.
"I didn't try to sugar coat
this at all, We have environ-
mental concerns, and we are
not going to slack on our
duties, but financially the
county is not flush and this
could help out our budget
some. It''s a revenue sources,"
Wheeler ad.
The county. commission
meets Tuesday ~at 9 a.m. at
the Governlment Center on
600 S. Commerce Ave. in
Sebring.

"I couldn't make a motion
before because I did not have
enough information. The
DOT explained that the rea-
son they picked us was
because we are a courity-run
landfill, and our regulation is
more stringent. That could
alleviate any future prob-
lems. We already have the
permits, and we already take
this kind of material," Maxcy
told the News-Sun on Friday.
Additionally, IMaxcy is
willing to a take another look
at: this because the DOT
ii~creased the per ton feel-
rWhen they received their
actual bids for hauling the
material, it was $2.50 less
than they estimated, and
since they already had their
budget for this, approved
they decided to give us, the
extra $2.50 per ton. That puts
it around $10 per to, and
makes it a better deal for us,"
Maxcy said.
According to Solid Waste
Director Ken Wheeler,
Maxcy and Wright met with
concerned landowners on
Monday to share information
about the proposed dirt trans-
acton.

had brought it in at the post-

The DOT has to remove
the soil from under the new
foundations of the buildings
in order to stop vapor prob-

and they have other options
on where to put the dirt.

iTreating the dirt is not.a
-problem, Wheeler said, and
the landfill has already han-
dled several hundred tons


over the past few months
from a diesel spill at the
asphalt plant and the City of
Avon Park.
"About three weeks ago'
we spread out the dirt from
our own spill and then once a
week we disked it. After sev-
eral tests, the petroleum had
evaporated from that soil in
about three weeks. So this
should not be. a problem,"
Wheeler said.
Additionally, Wheeler stat-
ed that by taking the soil the
county could realize an addi-
tional $1.75 per ton Savings

use as cover for the landfill.

"High taxes and high user fees don't do
that. We cannot rely on a service-oriented
economy to pay the bills in the future. The`
recent economic downturn ha's proven that
won't work; it's simply too fragile," Pollard
said.
Pollard went on to state that although the
county has the mechanism in place to market
Highlands, the Board of County
Commissioners will need to provide the
Economic Development Coinmission with the
tools to make it happen.
"If we are able to expand our tax base as
the economy turns around, we inust then con-
sider reducing property taxes as revenues
increase, rather than increasing spending as
has been done the past."

.around 1980. The friend had
Sa grill but didn't know how
to use it. Neither did anyone
else attending the party. So
Brown jumped in.
"I've been doing it just
about every weekend since,"
he said.
Not long after, but long
before he opened Famous
Flames, Brown saw a spot
on South Lake Boulevard in
Avon Park he thought would
Sbe a great place to set up and
sell barbecue. Just to see
what would happen, he
worked the spot and the first
weekend he sold $300 worth
of barbecue.
"They started coming after
that," he said.
SHe worked the squth side
of Avon Park the hours he
wasn't working for the
school board and built up a

Id i-by clibee. eS he
decided to go'full bore and
set up a permanent location.
Browh~ found it at 423 E.
11orel St. (Ste R ad 17)
at the intersection with
South Overlook Terrace. He
bought the lot in 2003 and,
continuing to save every
penny and to work hard to
meet city requirements, he
placed his restaurant struc-
tures and equipment there
for an opening on Dec. 18,
2008.
They've been coming ever
since to the new location,
too, and Brown will soon
have a mobile kitchen for
on-site event catering.
With the help of good
friends and hard workers
Sandra Thomas, 36, and
Mickey Johnson, 61, it
seems. certain that people
from all walks of life will
keep coming back for more,
whether it's for a catered
Super Bowl party, a family
dinner, or take out for one.


Famous Flames after the
high school hosted a faculty
meeting catered by Brown.
Satisfied educators licked
their fingers even as they
took notes. Hungry for more
than just learning, they
wiped out trays of Brown's
savory "Boston Butt" pulled
pork sandwiches.
"Boston Butt" is actually a
shoulder cut. It's just one of
the four meats Brown cooks
in his two smokers soon to
be three behind the two '
white trailers that are part of
the Famous Flames complex:
ribs, pulled pork, chicken,
and brisket.
Recently, Avon Park resi- .
dents Lateshia Coker, 19,
and friend Ashley James, 19,
sat in a booth opposite
David Callahan, 18,
unabashedly wolfing down
teesm ked thee en and' fries

sweet, honey mustard sauce.
"It's delicious," said
Coker between bites. "We've
been coming since it opened,
on Thursday, Fridays, after
school." <
But the usual grilled meats
aren't all Brown's Famo~us
Flames offers. He's added
fried chicken wings, fried
tilapia and fried catfish.
His list of sides is grow-
ii~g, too. Brown and his team
can whip up cole slaw, col-
lard greens, mac and cheese,
baked beans, fried okra,
sweet potato fries, French
fries, potato salad, corn-
bread, corn nuggets, onion
rings, hush puppies and
black-eyed peas
And Brown throws in
some popular standards, like
hamburgers, corn dogs,
Philly cheese steak sand-
wiches, fish sandwiches, and
chicken strips. Patrons can
wash down his fantastic fare
with Coke or Pepsi sodas,


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK There are
a few easy ways to tell if a
restaurant has good food.
One is whether its parking
lot is full. A second is
whether it gets a steady
stream of customers in and
out its doors. The third is
how much food each cus-
tomer takes away with him.
Score a hat trick for James
Brown's Famous Flames
Barbecue at 423 E. Cornell

intersection with Memorial
Drive, and a few blocks
south and east of Avon

of JameskBrown and Delores

made a huge dent mn the

Saturday 11 to 7, Sunday 11

Just ask the customers.
Oh, yeah, they come from
Wauchula, Frostproof, ,
Sebring, Lake Placid,
Lorida, and, of course, Avon
Park to haul off styrofoam ;
boxes and tinfoil trays
crammed with succulent ribs
smoked in charcoal or oak
wood chips and drenched in
Brown's special sauce.
"I couldn't believe we had
fresh, meaty ribs this good
in Highlands County," said
Avo Park Hig Sch ol sc
cerocnoach Ti ohy S ien oc-
"We ordered a boatload of
Mr. Brown's Famous Flames
ribs foi(.our concession stand
that we thought would last
for five games. We sold out
in a game and a half."

dessert, there is red velvet

But the mountainous
pulled pork sandwiches, or
the chunky ribs thick with
meat, top the list of cus-
tomer favorites.
And, uhhmmm, yeah, that
sauce!
"Most people like it on the
side," Brown said with a
laugh'. "I like it cooked in,
but most people like to see if
I can cook, so they want it
on the side. They come by to
see if I pass the test. When
they come back, they tell me
I've passed."
Brown wouldn't reveal
exactly what he puts into his
paste, only that it excites the
taste.
"We use about five differ-
ent ingredients," he said
vaguely. "We stir it up real
good. We let it simmer until


it's thick. We let it cool, and
we pour it in the bottles."
Brown should know what
he's talking about. His
grilling journey began dur-
ing his tenure with the


Highlands County School
~Board, with which he's been
the plant operator for Park
Elementary since 1996.

And Another
Thing...
Dan Hoehne


Choosing

Sides is a


Super

dilemma
To be honest, I've not
hall a sincere rooting
interest in a Super Bowl
since the 20th one you
know, the year of one of
the best single-season
teams in NFL history, my
Chicago Bears, when
they demolished the New
England~ Patriots, 46-10.
Sure, they were in it a
feiv years ago, but there
ivasn't much hope against
Peyton Manning and the
Colts, and that team
seemed to get there more
by accident than by the
sheer force and endlessly
entertaining way that
team in '85 did.
-Relating back to my,
recent column about root-
ing for your enemy, there
was a lesser rooting
interest the two times the
Packers made it to the
championship game.
Blit even then, the
Bear fan in me' wouldn't
have been too crushed
hall they riot won the
one, and wasn't exactly
inconsolable when they
lost the next one.
It's a weird thing, I
suppose, in that when my
team isn't in it, I can
conjure tai a reason to
root for one team over
the other, as the rest of
the natioil obviously
does, given the gargantu-


But I think, like those
of us outside' of said
teams fan bases, aren't
too up in arms with
'either potential outcome.
Then again, with the
amount "wagered" each
year, I'm sure there are
some who end up with a
sincere rooting interest.
As I have no gambling
interest, nor a true fan
interest and yet am still
going to watch because,
ofe ln, t rSthe Su er
the entertainment aspect
of the commercials..
I could be ~pulling for
the Saints, whose hapless
11istoiy lends itself to my
usual 'root-for-the-under-
dog'' mentality.
And with all the city of
New Orleans has beeni
through the last few


worthy cause.
But other factors pre-
vent me: from fully
embracing them as my
team in this game.
Back to the 'rooting
for your enemy' refer-
ence, I was hoping for a
fellow team from my
Bears NFC North to
make it, and the fact that
the Saints prevented that,
well, that doesn't sit
well.
Of course, if I were
true to the rooting for my
enemy theory, then I


should pull for New
Orleans for just that rea-
son but hey, it gets
complicated the moire
enemies you add to the
mix.
Besides, Indianapolis

SEBRING The season-
long growth of a young
Sebring wrestling squad con-
tinued Friday in the District
6-2A tournament as the team
saw four wrestlers advance
and gave them a first-hand
loo~k at a team they have aspi'-
rations of emulating in the
near future.
"It was about what I'
expected," head coach Josh
Miller said. "This was, by
far, the toughest district in
our region' with a team like
Lake Gibson and some of the
other Polk County schools.
The guys really worked hard.
and I'm proud of them."
The presence of the Lake
Gibson alone ratcheted up the
. standard of the meet, as the
Braves, having just won the
Brian Bain Polk County
Invitational last weekend,
advanced a grappler to the
championship round in every
single weight class doing a
fine impersonation of state
power Brandon.
But one Streak was up to
the challenge as sophomore
Cody Spiegel, came out on
top of a hard-fought, 7-4
decision over Logan Ennis in
the 135-pound weight class
championship match.
Spiegel had advanced with
a first-round bye and then a
quick pin, in just 1:05, of
Lake Region's Luis Morales
in the semifinals.
Also reaching the finals
was the team's lone senior,
.Michael Polatty in the 140-
pound weight class.
Polatty topped Winter
Haven's Cajuste Grauberson
on a technical fall at 2:56 in
.his first round match before
shutting~ out Bartow's Trey
Williams, 6-0, in his semifi-
nal match.
L` ake Gibson's Cash
SCotrell proved a bit too much
for Polatty on this diiy, talking
the class championship, but

The referee awaits making the pin call as Sebring's Andrew Cooper works to get it done in his first-round match against
Ridge Community's Nicholas Alexander in Friday's District Tournament. Below: After they both had first-round byes,
Sebring's Cody Spiegel made short work of Lake Region's Luis Morales in the semifinals.


Polatty had long since
secured his bid to the region-
al meet.
Cody Kennedy and
Andrew Cooper each took
fourth-place finishes for
Sebring, qualifying .them for
regionals as well.
Kennedy, in the 103-pound
weight- class, pinned Haines
City's Brenn Hines in 3:49 to
take his opening match
before getting pinned by
Skcyler Moody of Lake
Gibson to move him into the
consolation bracket.
From there he worked his
way back mnto the mix with a
pin of Ridge Community's
Jasmine Hill to reach 'the
third-place match a rematch
with Hines that didn't go
much better than the first
time around but by reach-

"This is a great fit for him.
He will get an opportunity to
play,"' Bonjokian said. "A lot
of schools were really inter-
ested, and we. had a lot of .
last-minute calls, but I think
he made a good decision

SSee ALLEN, page 3B


Park's leading rusher, and
emergency quarterback,
Teddy Allen will return to his
running-back roots -as- he
announced his intent to
attend Charleston Southern
University in South Carolina.
"I really like the~ school,
and I chose it because I think
I've got a better chance at
setigond th fels g g er,
full scholarship.
Charleston Southern, of the
Big South Conference, chose
Allen early in the season

football coach Andy


dence kicked us in the butt a
little bit tonight," Daley said.
"Your shots are gonna fall
when the confidence is there,
and it looked like our confi-
dence was a little off
tonight."
Illustrating Daley's point,
the Devils had plenty of
opportunity, but went just
two for 13 from the charity
stripe in the first half, leaving
them down 17-7 at the break.
Avon Park began their
fight back in the third, loos-
ening up and chucking the
ball for a small run from
seven to 13 points' before a
wrongs possession ruling left
Avon Park standing flat-foot-
ed and star-ing at the head ref-
-eree while Tenoroc heaved a
long pass to the other end for
an easy score.

our offense really let us

Avon Park had split the
season with the Tenoroc

washed away two games, and
part of a third, but the Lady

squeaked that one out Friday,

Freshman Kayla Clemens
got the start for SFCC and
gave up just three hits, with
Ithe three runs coming more
as a result of the windy and
rainy conditions.
"With the wind and all, it
was a tough day," Falla said.
"But Kayla pitched real well
in her first college game to
get the win."
The offense, meanwhile,

attack with Falla checking off
names throughout the line-up
who contributed in the con-
test. '
"Red (Shenequa
Simmons), Samantha
Dittman, Heather Barnes,
Kara Watson, they all hit
well," he said. "Pretty much
like we've been doing, it was
spread up and down the line-
up ."
With the field and condi~
tions continuing to deterio-
rate, the game was called in
the sixth and canceled any
further play in the tourna-
ment.
The Lady Panthers, now 3-
0, headed out early for a trip


to Gainesville to face Sante

Special to the News-Sln
SEBRING On Thursday,
Feb. 4, the Silent Salesman
Team battled the strong
Highlands Merchants in a
close, exciting game and
came out on top 17-15.
The Merchants came to bat
in the last inning seven runs
down and rallied for five runs
before leaving the tying ruli
on first base.
Salesman held the
Merchants big innings down
Until the last inning.
Good pitching by the
Salesman's Harley.Smith was
evident as in the last inning
with one out and the tying
run on first, he got the next
two batters to popup to the
catcher and a routine fly ball
which ended the rally.
It was "singles" day for the
Salesman batters as all 20
hits were of the one-base
variety. .
Dale Demar and
Harold Baucom had 3-for-3
and five other batters had two
hits each.
Merchants stronger hitters
were J. C..Brown, 1-for-
3 with a home run, Eddie
Lindberg was 2-for-4 with a
triple and Wayne Hill was 2-
for-4 with a double.
Bobby Fulcher went 3-for-4
with a double, Bobby Richards
was 2-for-3 and Victor
Rodriquez went 3-for-4.
H~ighlands Ridge toppled
Allstate Insurance 25-18.
They were tied in the top
of the eighth inning, 18-18,
when Ridge scored seven
runs and held Allstate at bay.
Ridge's Doug Stewart had
a good day going 4-for-5,
including a double, triple and
credited with four RBI.

ing the match itself,
Kennedy had locked up his
invitation to the next level.
Cooper's path was similar
as he pinned Ridge's Alex
Nicholas in 1:10 of the
opening round before falling
to class champ Luke Graves
of Lake Gibson.
A pin of Kathleen's Ray
Otero, in 3:15, then stamped
his ticket by reaching the
third-place match before set-
tling for fourth with a loss to
Bartow's Oscar Cabarcas.
"'We've seen so much
improvement throughout the
year," Miller said. "The kids
who didn't advance worked
really hard out there and will
continue' to work hard and
support their teammates,
practice with them and help
them get ready for region-
als."
Those would be the rest of
his young squad including
Ryan McNew, Chris
DeJesus, Josh Figur, Vicente
Moore, Terrence ~Taylor and
Dylan Brown who Miller
sees good things from the
next couple seasons.
"If they stick together,
stay as one," he said. "The
next one or two 'years,
Sebring, like we see with
Lake Gibson, will be~ a force
to reckon withh"
For his wrestlers' who's
season continues, Miller
knows the journey only gets

number one seeds in their
first rounds," he continued.
"The first or second-place
finishers will face the lower
seeds to Start off, so their
tougher matches don't come
until later. But at this level,
they're all tough, really,
since you're only facing


other kids that placed."
Perhaps it .serves as a
symbol of how difficult the
next step will be in that the
Region 2-2A meet takes

streets by the, time they're
older."
The AmVets Scramble in
2009 raised money for a new
dog to serve with the
Sebring Police Department.
Berdelle hopes people will
be as generous this year.
Half of the money raised
will go to the Boys & Girls
Clubs to help expand pro-
grams and the balance will
be used for other AmVets
projects .
Randall was surprised and
gratified when he was
approached by the veterans.
"AmVets risked their lives
to preserve the future for our
youth ," he said. "Now
they're playing golf to
impact the future of our
youth ."

SEBRING Anyn
who has ever swung a golf
club on an early Florida
morning with the sun still
rising knows the meaning
of pleasure.
Here is an opportunity for
such pleasure, while doing
something wonderful for the
community. .
Tom Berdelle's Third
Annual Memorial Golf
Scramble is set for Saturday,
Feb. 27. at the. Harder Hall
Golf Course.
The scramble is hosted by
AmVets Post 21 to benefit
the Boys &r Girls Clubs of
Highlands County.
An AmVets committee
chose the Boys & Girls
Clubs because of the work
they do with children in the
county.
The clubs are not super-
vised play time. Certified
teachers and trained aides
provide a tutoring program,
help with ~homework and


oversee an assortment of
learning games. There is a
special program designed to
help young people make bet-
ter, safer choices.
"The kids report cards are
improving and in elementary
school scores are improving
on standardized tests," said
Wally Randall, executive
director,
While overall. member-
ship is larger, on any given
day 80 children will be at
the Sebring Club, and 90 in
Avon Park. The clubs are
open~ when schools are
closed.
There are plans for a culi-
nary class and two commu-
nity gardens. -
"We're working very hard
to not be the best-kept secret
in town," Randall said.
Meanwhile, the AmVets
have planned a full day for
the 27th,
The scramble, with four-
person teams, will have a
shotgun start at 8 a.m., but
golfers should be at the
course by 7:30 a.m.


A complimentary barbe-
cue lunch, courtesy of Bob
'Evans, and beer, courtesy of
Bernie Little, will be served.
Door prizes will be given
out.
To make it really exciting,
the Alan Jay Automotive
Network is donating a new
car. Hit the first hole-in-onle
and win it. ,
Because there is a cutoff
at 144 players, those who
want to participate should
register as soon as possible.
There is a Feb. 20 deadline.
This is because late arrivals
in giast years have held up
the start of play..
Registration is $50 a per-
son. Hole sponsorships are
$100. Form a team and
sponsor a hole to save $25.
Organizers want singles
and couples to know they
are more than welcome and
will be matched up into
foursomes,
"You have to know the
Boys & Girls Club is a good
organization and we.have to
help," said Bonnie Berdelle,

THESE HEALTH SCREENINGS?
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
consistency and accuracy.

Q: WHY SHOULD I HAVE
THESE TESTS IF I HAVE
NO SYMPTOMS?
A. Unfortunately, our body's
warning signs often come too late.
It is important to have a screening
to identify problems before
symptoms arise, potentially avoiding
a serious health crisis. Ultrasound

liotch- entertainment at 7:30
p.m Monday in the,Panther
Gy~in, [ SFCC Highlands
Campus, when the Ballet
Folklolrico de Mexico takes
t'he 'stage. This large artistic
and' cultural production fea-
tures a cast of 50 dancers ~and
20 musicians.
- In 1952, dancer and chore-
i6graph~er Amalia' HernandeZ
founded~ the Ballet Folklorico
de Mexico, having embarked
at a very early ~age on a
never-ending quest to rescize
the 'dancing` traditions of


Mexico. This search became
a basic need to express, not
only in Mexico, but also in
the rest of the world. Her
goal was to share the beauty
of the universe in motion
through Mexican dances
from the pre-Colombian era,
the Hispanic Viceroy period,
and the popular the revolu-
tionary years.
In 1954, Hernandez ~began
to garner recognition as a
highly respected cultural rep-
resentative of Mexico. In her
earliest ballets, the audience
sees the present time fade
before its eyes as it enters
into a journey through the
past. The lords of heaven and
earth .come back to life, the


jaguars, the gods born of
human flesh, and 30 different
'cultures that blossomed in
centuries past leave behind a .
trail of color. All of these ele-
ments together gave
Hernandez the inspiration to
create the Ballet Folklorico
de Mexico.
The program features a
vast array of Mexico's cul-
ture including Aztec theolo-
gy, the soldiers of the
Mexican Revolution, the
Feather Dance of the Zapotec
people, and even a fiesta with
a mariachi parade and the
famous Mexican Hat Dance.
The performance is spon-
sored by Drs. Abe -and
Carmelita Lim, Dr. and Mrs.


Placido M. Roquiz Jr.., and

Public and private entities were

hold back water and slow down

named the Lake Okeechobee

of four extensions t~o existing cul-
verts. along the length of the levee.
The dyke holds back up to '
10,000-acre feet of water from
depths of 0 to 4 feet. Approximately
100,000 cubic yards .of material was
used to restore a two and a half mile
at~ea of degraded dyke. The project
was completed in July of 2009, and
~took only ~five months fironi begin-
Sning to end. .
It was done within the timeframe
and budget allotted. Crews worked
seven days a week to get the project
done. The' area is now rich 14i~th~
wildlife including water fowl and
alligators as well as miles of saw
grass and other important wetland
plants. According to Paul
Ebersbach, chief.of Environmental
Flight at the A~ir Force Range, "all
results exceeded expectations."
Seeing our taxpayer dollars being
.used in such an efficient way,
knowing that different governmen-
tal agencies can and do work well
together toward a common goal and
that our environment is being
restored and protected may help to
give us all hope toivard a better
tomorrow.

In this day and

~The complete success.
Watershed According to
Icorne~usess Clell Ford, proj-
Corie Bugessect manager for
. the Arbuckle Creek Levee undertak-
:ing, it would be tough to find a
~project comparable to this one. "Of
all the projects in South Florida, it
would be hard to find one that
restores this many acre feet of water
storage for this low price."
It all started back in the late '60s
when coricern for the Arbuckle
SMarsh and the wildlife that lived
there became an issue. There had
been so much alteration up and
down the watershed, between'pri-
vate lands and development, that
the water regime was being changed
and the arga began to dry up. Being
a very unique wetland, which is
very' important to the watershed
functionality, something had to be
done. This area is distinctive
because it is both an inflow and a
basin marsh. The marsh is fed by
Tomlin Gulley Creek on the south-
east portion and Morgan Hole Creek


From the north. It is bordered on the
west side by Arbuckle Creek, which
when flooded backflows into the
marsh.
It was decided that a dyke was
needed on the west and south
perimeter to hold water and then
allow it to flow back and drain out
'to simulate the natural regime. This
marked the first moment that the
Soil Conservation Service (nowi the
Natural Resource Conservation
Service) became involved in a part-
nership at the Avon Park Air Force
Range. The Soil Conservation
Service staff designed the dyke for
the Florida Game and Freshwater
Fish Commission, who were man-
aging the land at that time, and thus
the project began. The original dyke.
was constructed of materials, most-
ly muck, that was available on the
site and easily degradable.
In 1983, due to a change in Air
Force and Department of Defense
Policy, the bombing range personnel
took over the supervision of
wildlife management on the military
installation. Staff immediately stait-
ed looking at the dyke situation and
became concerned that it had
degraded and was not functioning
very well. Initially, the thought
process was to take the dyke out
and let nature take its course.
Contact was made with the South
Florida Water Management District
(SFWMD), who provides for con-
trol of the surface water flow, and

on friends the next few days, Capricorn.
You never know when you may need to
ask a favor from them. A scheduling
conflict arises on Wednesday.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) There's
not much you can do to change a present
situation, Aquarius, and that is frustrat-
ing. Channel your energy into some-
thing you can tackle to take your mind
off the other.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) With
Pisces birthdays on the horizon, start
thinking about how you would like to
spend your special day. Let loose.

Aries (March 21-April 20) It'll take
a while for you to get moving this week,
Aries, but once you do, there will be no
stopping you. Pace yourself, however,
or you could burn out much too fast.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) This is a
good time to concentrate on your
.,finances, Taurus. Re-examine your
budget or make a plan for the new year.
Bills pile up later in the week and will
need addressing,
Gemini (May 22-June 21) Put on a
happy face even if, you aren't in the
mood, Gemini. It'll make getting
through the week a little easier. You are
:.a master at hiding your true emotions.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) What are
you trying to prove, Cancer? Taking on
too much isn't going to win you points
with the higher-ups. It'll quickly tire
you out and then your performance will
suffer.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Making new
friends comes easily to you, Leo. You
have a magnetism, which will certainly
come through this week. Others are
ready to do your bidding.

arrive at them at a slower pace.

is going, pretty soon you will be in the
red, Libra. Use your time wisely to sit

Don't be concerned about the conse-

important at this pomnt.

tle variety in life and you'll be a well-
rounded person. A financial windfall is

LAKE WALES Fat
STuesday is Feb. 16. So there
is still plenty of time to, as
the Cajun say, 'Laissez les
::~bon temp rouler.' (transla-
tion: Let the good times roll).
SAnd Mardi Gras festivities
will come rolling into the
Historic District on Saturday,
Feb. 13, with the Lake Wales
26th Annual Mardi Gras
i" Parade.
The first Lake Wales Mardi
Gras was held in 1984 to
honor VitnDavis, te
Vwn rn' andl.eoperatorlea
Restaurant in the Rhodesbilt
Arcade. In 1983, Davis was
suffering from terminal can-
cer and he asked his friends
and family not to mourn him
when he passed. Instead, he
wanted a send-off in the vein
of a New Orleans jazz funer-
al. .
Unfortunately, they could
not do that. So they decided
to have a parade in his mem-
Rory and call it the Lake Wales
Mardi Gras. His wife, Nettie,
and daughter, Nancy, along
with many friends and family
members worked to put
together the first Lake Wales
,Mirdi Gras to celebrate
Vi ton's life.
.; Ihe first Lake Wales Mardi
Gras parade consisted of one
`5 ba ~d (Al's Place Band), four
K \ves (The Krewe of Rex,
T~g Royal Order of the Red
!1S ans, The Krewe of
Pe'gasus, and The Wild
Sh'iners), and several march-
ing revelers. They marched
before a- crowd of a couple
Shub~dred spectators. Today,
the parade consists of more
than a dozen floats and at
least 10 Krewes, with names
like Rex, Aphrodite, Pegasus,
Wild Shiners, Zazu, Krewe of
Trash, Rebbew, and
Edonmada.
Mardi Gras is a festival
that takes place during the
fourteen days prior to the
Roman Catholic liturgical
season of Lent. The festival
originated in the early 1800's
in Mobile, Alai. Eventually, it
spread to nearby New
Orleans, the city that made it
famous. Mardi Gras, which
literally means "Fat
STuesday," concludes at mid-
flight on the day before Ash
Wednesday, the official start
of Lent.
iActive krewes are what
kepp Mardi Gras alive and
alf: you need is a group of


fun-loving people. New -
krewes are encouraged to
join the Mardi Gras
Committee in planning the*
festivities for next year by
selecting a member and an
alternate to represent their
krewe on the Mardi Gras
Committee .
If you are interested in
staring a krewe or want more
information on this year's
event, visit www.1wmardi-
gras.com or call (863) 638-
2686.
This festival of food, arts
and crafts will sart light
a.m., the Lake Wales Polilce
Association Children's
Carnival opens to the delight
of the kiddies. Chalet
Suzanne will be open to serve
a speCial Mardi Gras
Breakfast at 8 a.m.
The musical melee will
begin at 11 a.m. with Jon and
Debbie Corneal and continue
all day with sets from
Mustang Sally and the
Hamjos, Zydeco Zoo, Gris
Gris, Jug Band, Bandhaven,
Roughshod, and Modown
and others.
At 3 p.m., it's all about the
beads, when the parade
begins to snake its way down
First Street, Central Avenue
Stuart Avenue, and finally
ending on Park Avenue.
Yell "throw me something"
as the floats pass by. A tip for
the newbie: Making eye con-
tact with a float rider and
looking sad may .help. And
bag your loot as you catch it
because many riders won't
throw to -someone whose
neck bulges with fancy, long
beads.
On Feb. 12, the Krewe of
Pegasus will have their Gala
Coronation Ball from 7 p.m.
to 12 a.m. at the Lake Wales
Country .Club. The Krewe of
Rex will have their Prince of
Wales Grand Coronation Ball
at the Festival Steak &
Seafood Restaurant from 7
p.m. to 12 a.m. Tuesday, Feb.

FLORID~A LIVING


February. Nestmng occurs
from late March through
early July. Fall migration can
begin as early as late June
when flocks of several hun-
dred to several thousand
Martins may be seen gather-
ing~ before their trans-Gulf
flight to Brazil. Most of the
Florida population leaves the
state long before northern
birds migrate through in late
August and September. Other
names include black martin,
gourd martin and house mar-
tin.

the nest at 26-30 days.
'Many cities, like Chicago,
Little Rock, Houston, Texas,
Stockton, N.Y.,.and many
others, have a special day set
- aside to honor the Purple .
Martin's expected arrival.
Griggsville, Ill., is a good
.example of, a city going all-
out to pay respect to this bug-
eating-machirle. Griggsville
was being seriously harassed
by biting, stinging, flying .
insects, especially mosqui-
toes..Not. wanting to broad-
cast more insecticides into
the air, they decided to put up
hundreds of purple martin
houses in the city. Upon the
arrival and subsequent
"work" performed by the
martins, the insect problem
was solved.
During the latest Archbold-
,Audubon Lake Placid
Christmas Bird Count, no
purple martins were sighted.
Our good friend, Charley
Marr, who lives near Lake
Bonnet, martin scouts visited
his bird house a few weeks
ago. However, he has not
seen any more activity as of
this writing.
Martins arrive in Florida
during late January and early

Ructh & Hank- Kowualski
Welcome to our roost! It is
now that time of the year to
get the purple martin houses
ready for the early arrival of
martin "scouts." Those of us
lucky to have invested in a
good, quality house will soon
reap the benefit of ridding the
area of pesky biting, flying
insects and hopefully, lots of
mosquitoes. To hear once
again that lovely, bubbling
chatter of the martins always
brings on a smile from any-
one listening as it reassures
us that another of life's mys-
terious cycles has been
renewed.
Modern man has copied the
practice of attracting purple
martins to his home, from our
American Indians, who hung
clusters of hollow gourds in
trees as nesting places for the
birds, knowing that the mar-
tins would consume thou-
sands of flying, biting insects
As a matter of fact, gourds
made of plastic are now being
used in addition to the "apart-
ment-size"' martin houses
available today. Aluminum
houses are recommended as
they are easier to clean and to
rid the dwelling of mites.
Purple martins (Progne
subis) are 7 to 8.5 inches in
size and are considered to be
our largest swallow. Adult
males are steel-blue in color,
female and immature males
are duller above, pale gray
below. When viewed in flight
the shape is similar to star-
lings, but flight is more bupy-
ant and gilding.
Nest building is by both
sexes and consist of grass,
pine needles, feathers and .
other plant material. Four or
five eggs are laid and incuba-
tion is by the female, lasting
15-17 days. Young are tended
--by both parents and will.1eave
