By SCOTT DRESSEL
scott.dressel@newssun.com
SEBRING The largest page-out of fire-
fighters in several years helped keep a fire in a
grove barn from getting out of control on a
cold and rainy Friday afternoon.
Before it was over, eight fire departments -
West Sebring, DeSoto City, Highlands Lakes,
Lorida, Sun 'N Lake North, Leisure Lakes,
Lake Placid and Highlands County were on
scene at the large metal Crutchfield Groves
building at 2745 Arbuckle Creek Road.
When asked about the last time so many fire
stations had been paged out to a fire. Charles

By ED BALDRIDGE

AVON PARK Longtime City of
Avon Park employee C.B. Shirey
announced his retirement on Friday,
effective immediately.
"No one is indispensable. It's just the
right time," Shirey told the News-Sun
on Friday. "I have kinda been thinking

my decision this week.
"It is not really a shock, I have been

Shirey began work-
ing for the city on July wM

as the city clerk for
almost a year before taking the
post of city manager.
He remained in that position
until February of 2008, when he

BusY SATURDAY IN SEBRING


- ~,





















By ROMONA WASHINGTON
romona.washington@newssun.com
SEBRING Thousands have sang
his songs, but very few know he is
buried here in Sebring.
Charles Frederick Weigle wrote more
than a thousand gospel songs; the most
notable probably being "No One Ever
'Cared for Me Like Jesus." Though he
spent the last 15 of his 95 years on the
campus of Tennessee Temple Schools
in Chattanooga, his family chose
'Sebring to be his final resting place.
His story has been brought to light
,again after a request by Bill King, a
'Chattanooga Seminary work study stu-
dent who helped care for Weigle. King
learned that Weigle had been buried
*next,to his second wife, Carrie, at
-Pinecrest Cemetery here in
-Sebring. He put out a request for
'someone to find the grave and
*photograph it for him.
King notes in an e-mail to the
News-Sun that Weigle may have
-actually been 105 at the time of
,his death. He has found Federal
'Census Records from OP
Lafayette, Ind., that proves he A1
'was was older that his head-
-stone indicates.
According to King, Weigle '
was despondent when his
*Prst wife left him, leading
'his writing "No One Ever
Cared for Me Like Jesus."
SWeigle was personal
friends of George Sebring,
":he city's founding father.
'Trhey were so close, in
fact, that Sebring named
Weigle Avenue, which is
feast of Sebring High
,School, after his
friends. King explains
;tiat Weigle was an
'"itinerant evangelist
band preacher so he
couldn'tt afford a new
;;home in Sebring.
tCouldn't, that is,
unless you knew the
'buiilder and design-
er and contractor.

munity. Mr. ( )..
Sebring was a ,

Quaker and held Charlie in high
esteem."
Weigle's story is much broader and
deeper than a song composed in time of
great sorrow and despair. His keen
interest in music led him to attend the
Cincinnati Conservatory of Music,
where he received training that later
proved invaluable. He became both an
inspiring preacher and a gifted song-
writer.
According to our.homewithgod.com,,
"No One Ever Cared for Me Like
Jesus" was the product of one of the.
darkest periods of his life. "Weigle
:spent most of his life as an itinerant
evangelist and gospel songwriter. One
day after returning home from an evan-
gelistic crusade, he found a note left by


News-Sun Sunday, February 14, 2010


Gospel songwriter buried in Sebring


his wife of many
years. the note said
she had had enough
of an evangelist's
Life. She was leaving
him."
Weigle apparently
considered suicide,
feeling despair that'
Weigle no one really cared
for him anymore.
Gradually his spiritual faith was
restored and he once again became
active in his ministry. In time, he wrote
the popular hymn, which he sold to
Homer Rodeheaver for $1.
King said he said he ask Weigle to
play his song "and he would sit down
to his studio piano and at 95 years old
he would warble out the lyrics to his
song." There is a music building at
Tennessee Temple University named
after Weigle where King helped watch
and care for him as a young preacher
boy.

County to shut
down free water
on March 1.
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING Drinking
water is one of the basic
necessities for life, but
county officials are con-
vinced that there is no
longer a need. to provide
free drinking water to
Highlands County resi-
dents.
The county has
Announced that on March
1, free drinking water will
no be available for free at
the Bert J. Harris
Agricultural Center.
"Our well has dried up,
and we need this water,"
Cathy Hines, resident, of
Leisure Lakes told the
News Sun.
Hines has a shallow
well, and ever since the
hurricanes in 2004, their
well does not produce
drinkable water.
According to Hines,
county officials told her
that it now cost the county
$70 per month to give away
the water, and the cost is
one of the reasons that the
use is being discontinued.
"You are telling me that
the county can waste over
$1 million on an asphalt


plant, but $70 per month is
too much to spend on
something that county resi-
dents need?" Hines asked.
"There are a lot of people
out there that feel the same
as I do. We depend on this
water. Of course we buy
some,, but this is our pri-
mary source fro drinking
and cooking."
Another Leisure Lakes
resident, Rosie Earp, said
during the last county com-
mission meeting that she
has relied on the county
free water program, for 18
years.
"I was. told that as of
March 1 the county is n6
longer providing free
drinking water at the agri-
cultural center," Earp told
the commissioners.
"We need this water for
drinking and for cooking. It
would be a hardship on us;
we are on Social Security. I
was told that if I wanted
water I could go to Sebring
and buy it. I took offense to
that, because of the way he
spoke to me. The people
really need this water,"
Earp said.
Earp's well was found to
be contaminated from agri-
cultural fertilizers and the
water is unsuitable for
drinking, but can be used
for washing clothes or

Two events planned to benefit HLT


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
Little Theatre will present
"Courtly Costumes Through
the Ages" at the Sebring
Lakeside Casino Tea Room at
2 p.m. on Saturday. This ret-
rospective look at fashion
from antiquity to the
Victorian era will showcase
the talents of the wardrobe
department. While many of
the featured costumes have
been seen on the HLT stage,
some have not yet made their
stage debut.
"You have no idea the
amount of work and detail
that goes into creating the-
atrical costumes," Wardrobe
Mistress Helen Curcio said.
"Period pieces are thor-
oughly researched for
authenticity," Vanessa


Logsdon added. "Show cos-
tumes are sturdily construct-'
ed to withstand the rigors of-:
repeated performances.
Being a skilled seamstress is.,
a crucial element, but it does-
n't end there. Many times
there are craft projects that
go into completing a costume
piece. Theatre is storytelling.
These clothes will tell a fas-
cinating story."
The $30 ticket includes the
lunch. The Sebring Lakeside
Casino Tea Room is at 1063
Lake Sebring Drive. Seating
to see this unique artistry up
close and personal is limited.
The deadline to purchase
tickets is Wednesday.

Tasting to benefit Highlands


Little .Theatre at the
Kenilworth Lodge from 2-5
p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27th.
Tickets are $35 and will

The F-35 Lightning has some noise issues that have concerned some residents near its
training areas.

Air Force still looking at Avon

Park Range for F-35 training


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK The U.S.
Air Force held a public meet-
ing on Tuesday to measure'
the public's response to
bringing the F-35 Lightning's
training to the Avon Park Air
Force Range.
The Air Force is research-
'ing alternative home bases
for the newest stealth fighter,
and Jacksonville is one of the
considered sites. If the Air
Force .bases the aircraft in
Jacksonville, then the Avon
Park Range will be one of the
facilities used for training.
The F-35A is a single-seat,
all-weather stealth fighter,
capable of employing air-to-
ground, air-to-air, and guided
weapons.
But the new stealth fighter
comes with a noise problem,
and some places around the
country are not happy with
environmental impacts.
Residents in several com-
munities are complaining
about the noise created by the
F-35, telling the Air Force


"not in my back yard."
In late 2008, the Air Force
revealed that the F-35 would
be about twice as loud at
takeoff as the F-15 Eagle, the
standard for testing, and up.
to four times as loud upon
landing.
As a result, residents near
Davis-Monthan Air Force
Base in Arizona and Eglin
Air Force Base in the
Panhandle, possible homes of
the jet, have requested that
the Air Force conduct envi-
ronmental impact studies
concerning the F-35's noise
levels.
According to news reports,
the city of Valparaiso, which
is located next to the Eglin
base, threatened in February
of last year to sue the Air
Force over the impending
arrival of the F-35s.
Air Force officials pub-
lished a notice of intent in the
Federal Register on Dec. 30
to prepare the impact studies,
and listed Avon Park as one
of the cities that would be


allowed to give public input.
The environmental impact
analysis will examine the
issues relating to the land
use, airspace and safety, air
and water quality, noise,
socioeconomic impact, bio-
logical and cultural resources
and cumulative actions need-
ed.
By participating in the
scoping process, Highlands
County residents are helping
the Air-Force identify public
issues and concerns particu-
lar to the community, assist
in defining the scope of
analysis; as well as develop
other reasonable alternatives
for the F-35A operational
basing proposal.
The public can continue to
provide input by mailing
written comments to Sheryl
Parker, HQ ACC/ A7PS, 129
Andrews St., *Suite 337,
Langley AFB, VA, 23665-
2769. To ensure equitable
consideration 'in the draft
analysis, submit comments in
writing by March 1.

had a different opinion, and
a definition from Webster's
Dictionary to support his
ruling since no legal
description existed yet,
according to McCollum.
The decision stems
around the definition of a
public Internet provider.
According to McCollum,
the law was written before
instant message was even
invented, and the Federal
Supreme Court will make a
ruling this spring on what
that definition will ulti-
. mately be.
"I am very disappointed
in the judge's ruling. He
had the same facts in the in
the pre-trial and did not dis-
miss, so why now? The law
does not clarify what is
meant by 'public provider'
for e-mails, and the
Supreme Court is going to
make that determination in
the spring, but the judge
decided to do a summary
judgment now and not wait.
I don't understand that,"
McCollum said on
Thursday.
After the trio were fired,
11 other county employees
were disciplined for "inap-


propriate use" of instant
messaging, mostly through
verbal warnings and written
reprimands.
The lawsuit sought
$50,000 in damages for
each plaintiff, but did not
seek reinstatement for Lee,
Handley, or Edwards.
McCollum, pointed 'out
that the county's inconsis-
tencies in handling what is
private and what is public
is part of the current prob-
lem.
"The county is currently
spending thousands on
keeping one e-mail private,
but considered these as
public. I guess it's all in
how you read it,"
McCollum said.
"I am not sure if my
clients will seek an appeal;
we have some time to file
.on that. We will have to
appeal if we want to Ivait
until the Supreme Court
rules. Once the Supreme
Court defines what is' pub-
lic, then we can file within
that definition," McCollum
said.
"The judgment may have
been favorable towards the
county at this point, but it is
not final," he added.

Here comes the sea,

faster than we thought


My love affair with water
began when I walked on my
first Florida beach at Bahia
Honda State Park in 1975. I
stood in the shallow water at
the park, small waves lapping
at my ankles, and watched
the most spectacular sunset
of my life. The next day I
snorkeled in those same
waters and met the beautiful,
fish that make Florida
famous.
My first trip through the
Everglades brought me .a
deeper appreciation of water
and Florida's wildlife, from'
the alligators sunning them-
selves on the edge of canals
to the white ibis poking for:
bugs in the muck.
And now, that could all'
become 'something known
only from the writers and
artists 'and. photographers-
who will leave the records of
a once-upon time. I've heard
it over and over again in talk-
ing to the people who study
such things: Florida is one of
the most vulnerable states"
when it comes to climate
change. Mostly they mean we
are vulnerable to "sea level
rise."
Here's my simple view of
what's happening and will
continue to happen: when
water heats, it expands, and
the water temperatures are
rising. Adding to the vulnera-
bility of Florida is its very
shape, surrounded on three
sides by the water that has
reached a figurative boiling
point.
And that's one way climate
change causes sea level rise;
of course, there is the melting
polar ice that will contribute
as' well. Most of us envision
that happening sometime in
the nebulous future, but the
news that came out of a con-
ference held in Florida in
January tells us otherwise.
"Since 1930, the sea has
risen 10 inches in Florida,"
said Reed Noss, a biology
professor frotn the University
of Central Florida and organ-
izer of the event. "And 80
percent of southeastern
Florida's flood-control struc-
tures are failing because of
sea level rise, according to
the South Florida Water
Management District."
Harold Wanless of the
University of Miami suggest-
ed to the participants that "a
rise of four or five feet by the
year 2100 is more likely, with
higher levels possible,"
according to a press release
from UCF.
The conference, sponsored
by the Florida Institute for
Conservation Science,
marked Florida's first inter-
disciplinary meeting on the
impacts of sea level rise. The
event brought together geolo-
gists, oceanographers, ecolo-
gists, biologists, anthropolo-
gists, archaeologists, engi-


Wildlife
Forecast

Patricia Behnke
neers and planners..
"It is crucial to bring these
experts together because they
all hold a piece of the puz-
zle," Noss said. "Florida
stands to lose more economi-
cally and biologically than
any other state in the country;
yet it has done the least to
prepare than any other
coastal state."
A report : released in
,December in Nature warns
about the speed of the Earth's
*shifting climatic zones. This
impacts wildlife because the
ecosystems where they live
are changing, forcing wildlife
to change their habits now.
Shrinkage of habitat in the
Keys already is having an
impact on the endangered
Florida key deer and other
plants found only in that part
of the world, according to
Noss.
Wildlife and habitat man-
agers may have to rethink
where they put their efforts
sooner than thought. Why
spend millions of dollars on
habitat that might.not be here
in 100 years? Money and
resources might be better
spent elsewhere. That's why
it's crucial that land planners
at all levels of government
start now to plan for what
appears -to be an uncertain
future.
Dr. Thomas Eason with the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
presented information at the
conference on what wildlife
managers must consider as
climate changes and human
populations shift and grow.
Eason warned that sea level
rise will put increased pres-
sure on public lands to be
used for human needs.
"This means wildlife will
not only face direct impacts
from sea level rise, but they
also will have to contend
with indirect impacts from
how people respond as well,"
Eason said. "Imagine the last
wild panther captured, with
zoos the only remaining
refuge for the homeless cats."
So what do we do? We let
the managers manage and the
scientists research and moni-
tor. Individually, we. become
careful stewards of the envi-
ronment through our actions
to. slow down the process.
For me, this means buying an
alternative-fuel vehicle when
I purchase my next car. Using
less energy and becoming
less dependent upon foreign
oil sources is good for our
economy, our air and our
wildlife. Then we all can
continue our love affair with
Florida and its natural
resources for a little while
longer.

Maybe it's still music
Editor:
The half-time show at the Super Bowl this
year was The Who,:a group of British septua-
genarian rockers, reliving their glory years in
the middle of a light show that covered half of
the playing field. Just why "Who" needed to
be surrounded by a few acres of flashing
lights, rockets, smoke bombs and torches
while they whacked away at their guitars and
bellowed old lyrics is part of the current ego
malady infecting the music business.
Similarly, a recent U-2 concert in Tampa
required the construction of a giant claw,
standing several stories high, topped by
something resembling an ICBM. All of this so
the four of them could stand under it for their
two hour concert.
I grew up in the big band era, the time of
Glenn Miller, the Dorsey's, Benny Goodman
and Harry James. They shared a high level of
virtuosity, their music clever and memorable.
Pyrotechnics were not necessary to augment
their showmanship; their only concession-
matching jackets for the band. The music said
it all.
Beyonce, a big winner at this year's
Grammy's, travels with 14 truckloads of
equipment recently added a trapeze to her
singing performance ... 14 truckloads of stuff!
The New York Philharmonic travels with less
dunnage.
I recall Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald,
sharing a spotlight, singing hit tunes, music
that became classics. No light show, no

-S Snow daze


I didn't always live in
Florida. In fact, I was born in
New York, where snow is
- more than something you see
- on television or hear about
. from friends and neighbors.
Not only that, I lived in
S- Kansas City for a time, where
I was forced, to learn to drive
in the stuff.
I say this so that my read-
ers who are socked in by the
white stuff understand that
S* even though I'm sitting here
in snowless Central Florida,
enjoying temperatures that
-. .- - you're only dreaming about,
I feel your pain. Really.
I know that John and
,. James are experiencing hard-
ship right now. They're in
Tennessee, which has gotten
rial a fair share-of the white stuff
lately. While John's wife
ent -- Amanda was enjoying the
B. .. weather at some point, the
most you can say about John
Views Providers and James' attitudes is that
they're enduring it.
That's understandable,
given they spent most of their
formative years in the south.
While there were occasional
moves to places such as
Kansas and Oklahoma, those
rnperiods were a fraction of
their lives. Florida weather is
what they know and appreci-
ate.


And I admit I've grown
less fond of snow over the
years. When I was a kid, it
was of course something
awesome, especially when it
got school cancelled. (When
I was a teacher in Kansas
City, I found I still enjoyed
snow cancelling school.
Some things never change).
But now? I'll admit it's
pretty to look at, as long as -
and this is an important point
- I'm not attempting to drive
in it. -I'm happy if someone
will cart me there, let me
frolic for a bit, and then take
me someplace warm with hot
chocolate.
But I can honestly say that
I hear of John and Amanda
not being able to get out of
their driveway or James tak-
ing a couple of tumbles on
the slippery stuff and honest-
ly not miss it one single bit.
Washington DC has also
encountered snow.. That
means things there have
come close to a screeching
halt since the place where our
lawmakers meet has never
been up to dealing with snow,
though it happens often
enough there you have to ask
what the problem is. The
snarky side of me will admit
that the fact DC is not getting
anything done is a reason to
like snow.
Some people will look at
all this snow and ask the
question, "What about global
warming?" These questions
irritate some of those who
believe in global warming,
since as far as they are con-
cerned the idea the earth is
getting hotter is a fact, a
FACT, do you hear me, and
questioning it means you're
an idiot, or maybe a
Republican!
My mother-in-law informs
me that someone on televi-
sion says that the snow
proves global warming,
though how record snowfall
means things are getting hot-
ter is beyond me. And I've
been told I'm smart.
If I were a person who
refrained from being a smart
aleck, I would say nothing
about the fact that a Senate
committee hearing on global
warming was cancelled due
to the snow. As any reader of
this column knows, I don't
refrain.
To my friends in the north,
know I sympathize with you
as I walk outside dressed in a
mere light jacket. As I drive
my car without wondering if
it will suddenly turn into a
sled. I really do feel bad for
you.
Remember that when I
whine about broiling this
August.


smoke bombs. They set the standard for
vocalists.
I'm a fan of cool jazz, Bach and Brubeck,
an admirer of the Beatles. Simon and
Garfunkel's lyrics and music captured the
story of my life with two guitars and a boat-
load of brilliance. So what happened to the
music business?

Blame successfully transferred
Editor:
Congratulations to the far right's propagan-
da machine, the world's most powerful, for its
immensely successful campaign to transfer
the blame for the previous eight years to the
Democrats in 2010. It summarily dismissed
its culpability of instigating the worst eco-
nomic crisis since the Great Depression and
transferred it to 2010.
However, the blame for the recent election
in Massachusetts can be laid at the feet of
Democrats, mainly Senators Lieberman and
Dobb of Connecticut, Ben Nelson of
Nebraska and Lambreia of Louisiana; even
Reid of Nevada (although he has performed
remarkably as the senate leader). Their
greedy groups for billions of dollars in their
states prolonged the debate on health care at
least six months which led up to Senator
Brown.
It is understood that the republicans would
use every tactic available to block and pro-
long the health care debate, but the democrats
could have passed the bill last April, May had
it not been for the so-called leaders noted
above. The machinations of this Congress
reminded me of a term used when I was in
Dade County years ago: Mole. Anyone com-
ing from Cuba could be mole/spy for the
communists. Could Lieberman be a republi-
can mole?
It is ironic that the republicans call anyone
opposing their policies socialists and commu-
nists. They proclaim to advocate freedom of
the individual, yet their sponsors, the corpo-
rate elite follow oligarchy or the plantation
syndrome (monarchy). Whatever the planta-
tion owner says is law, right or long, legal or
illegal, ethical or unethical. The masses have
been enslaved for nine years now to those
policies. Yet, President Obama has been
shackled by not only the republicans but by
his own party.
That mean-spirited, hard nosed policy has
held the republicans to a successful block
vote, while the democrats exploit their major-
ity for individual gains; therefore, whatever
losses recorded thus far and in November can
be attributed to the democrats very sad to
say. I believe in diversity; it's genetic in
America; however, its exploitation is unac-
ceptable, destructive.

Firefighters begin the final stages of putting out Friday's fire at the Crutchfield Groves barn
in Sebring.


Fire damages grove barn Friday
Continued from page 1A Within 90 minutes of the first call, fire-


Office handled that downwind. Anytime
you get a fire like that (with possible chemi-
cals inside) you don't want to be downwind.
It can kill you."
There was a fertilizer trailer reportedly
empty sitting just outside the building as
well as several fuel storage tanks that could
have become problems if the fire had reached
them, but it never had the chance.


fighters were able to shift into mop-up mode,
.just knocking down small areas of flames.
Flames were visible through the roof at times,
although firefighters said they were just com-
ing through skylights, which actually helped
save the building by giving the fire a place to
go up instead of spreading laterally.
Andrews said the State Fire Marshall was
called to determine the cause of the fire.


Shirey retires from AP government


Continued from page 1A
said Executive Director of the
Avon Park Chamber of
Commerce David Greenslade.
"I think C.B. has dedicated a
lot of years to Avon Park, and I
want to wish him well in his
retirement. I would also like to
thank him for his service and
hard work." ,
Interim City Manager Maria
Sutherland said both she and
the city will miss Shirey.
"It's just one of those things
where you are at a certain age,
and career is not as important
as enjoying life. We are going


to miss him," she said. "He
hired me, so there has been a
long friendship there. He was a
wonderful person to work with.
He will be missed, more than
he thinks he will be. "
With Shirey's retirement,
Sutherland was confident that
the airport was going to be fine
with the advisory board, but
the city would possibly have to
.look for some one to fill
Shirey's other position in plan-
ning and zoning.
"It is going to be difficult to
find someone with his experi-
ence. His job was split, and we
are going to have to assess who


we need to fill the planning and
zoning spot," Sutherland said.
"But I am comfortable with the
airport right now, with the con-
sulting firm and Richard
McKenzie out there we should
be fine for now. They keep me
informed about the daily oper-
ations, and we have enough
oversight."
Shirey said he plans to con-
tinue living in Avon Park.
"I retired from the military
here, and I would like to stay
for a bit. I may go out and look
for some kind of work after a
bit. I don't know yet," Shirey
said.


Heart care in the Heartland just got
a lot more exciting

Things are looking up for. heart care in the Heartland.
Thanks to our advanced Cardiac Cath Lab, our experienced
interventional specialist and cardiac team now have new
technology in the fight against heart di-ease
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 is deflated, a metal
S mesh stent is left behind to hold the artery open. In 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. Ifts also part of our broader mission to deliver physical,
spiritudaland emotional healing in a safe, caring environment.
We're raising expectations for heart care sky high.

Weigle wrote famous

gospel song in 1932


Continued from page 2A
"I would wheel him back
to his studio apartment
there after Sunday morning
services with Dr. Lee
Roberson and Dr. J. R.
Faulner, my two spiritual
daddies. He would relax
after lunch, then it would
be a little time between
waking and evening servic-
es. Sometimes he would
set at his Spinet piano and
play his songs and other
music; some I recognized,
some I didn't.
"Several times he played
a song or two by Fanny
Crosby, such as 'Blessed
Assurance.' At that point I '
would ask him if he knew
her. His answer was always
.the same, 'Oh, Francis
Jean [Fanny]. When I knew
her she was a very old lady
and I was a very young
man and I loved her dear-
ly.' "
Kifig joked that, at that
age, Weigle's singing was
not so good. "I think God
is tone deaf," he wrote.
Weigle died that following
December in 1966.
"The nurses called Dr.


Lee Roberson and said,
'Dr. Roberson, you have to
come out here and talk to
Dr. Weigle. He keeps
insisting he wants to go
home and he's in no shape
to be discharged.' Dr.
Roberson replied, 'Ah,
dear lady, you don't under-
stand. That's not the home
Dr. Weigle is talking
about.' "
King said Weigle's song
has blessed hundreds of
thousands, if not millions
of people.
"Most of his other 1,000
songs have gone with the
wind, but this one remains
a timeless classic. They
say it has been translated,
published and sung more
than any other piece of
music except for a handful
of stalwarts such as
'Amazing Grace,' 'The
Lord's Prayer,' 'Ave
Maria,' 'Rock of Ages' and
a few others," King said.
Weigle encouraged all
who were blessed to come
in contact with him and
continues to be a blessing
to many through the legacy
of godly music he left
behind.


Free water not a

service county wants

to provide anymore


Continued from page 2A
bathing.
Hines only uses the water
once a month, but won-
dered why taxpayers, who
are paying the bill anyhow,.
would no longer be able to
use the water.
"What are our taxes
going for?" she asked.
Hines said she called her
commissioners about the
issue, but so far they seem
indifferent to the issue.
"Jeff Carlson told me that
it was our fault that we
chose to live in the country.
We can't afford to live in
the city. We can't afford to
move. I know that folks
come from as far away as
Lorida, and this is going to
effect a lot more people
"" than they think," Hines
said.
Hines said she also spoke
to Commissioner Barbara
Stewart, but stated that
Stewart did not understand
her plight.
"Commissioners get this
extra $50,000 per year that
I don't get. Commissioner
Stewart stated that the
water should be saved for
other emergencies. She also
stated that people were
abusing the water. All they
need to do is take the spigot
off that has threads on it


and post a sign that says the
water is for drinking only. I
don't think that she feel the
way I do about this," Hines
said.
David Flowers,
Highlands County's
Director of Facility
Management, has said that
cutting off the free water is
a cost-cutting measure and
that commercial users are
now filling tanks for fertil-
izing, and vandals are leav-
ing the water run all week-
end at times.
Flowers said that the
City of Sebring provides
the water, and that the
county pays the bill each
month.
Hines told the News-Sun
Friday that Commissioner
Edgar Stokes told her that
the board would discuss the
issue during Tuesday's
meeting, and she hopes
people show up to voice
their concerns.
"If we don't speak up,
then how will they know? I
think lots of people will be
effected by this and that
they should let their com-
missioners know. I think
more people should call the
'commissioners and get
them to make a decision
about this soon," Hines
said.

Comeback kids can't catch Kowboys


Sebring Senior
Softball action

Page 4B


Sunday, February 14, 2010


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
SEBRING It came up
short, this latest comeback
bid by the Blue Streaks,
though it wasn't for lack of
effort as Sebring fell 73-60 to


top-seed Osceola in
Friday's second semi-
final game of the
District 5-5A boys
basketball tournament.
"They showed a lot
of heart," head coach
Princeton Harris. said
of his squad. "They


Ocec


Sebr

gave the effort and fought
until the end. As a coach, you
can't ask for anything more
than that."
Then again, the rafters of
the gym at Kenilworth and
South Highlands may not
have held up to any more
drama and excitement this


night.
There was enough of that
in the final 30 seconds of the
first semifinal game between
second-seed Ridge and third-
seed Lake Wales.
With Ridge up one and in
possession of the .ball
aola with little more, than
3 half-a-minute remain-
ing, a steal and score.
by James Loydd sud-
ing denly had the
O Highlanders up a sin-
gle digit.
Moments later,
another steal and score by
Lake Wales extended the lead
and had the Bolts looking for
a miracle.
They got what they were
praying for when Joshua
Roche banked in a three-
pointer from the right wing to
tie things at 62 with just 2.9


seconds showing on the clock
and overtime seeming
inevitable with momentum
galore on the side of Ridge.
. But one more miracle was,
in store when junior
Highlander Terry Bradley
found an open seam in the
press, took the pass near mid-
court, turned and stepped
with a dribble before heaving
one up that rattled home as
the buzzer was sounding for
the, jaw-dropping, gym-
imploding 65-62 Lake Wales
win.
A tough game to follow,
certainly, and it looked as if
the night's finale would-be
over soon after it started with
Osceola breaking out .early
and often.
Six-foot guard Brenton
Williams started things off
with an exclamation 'point,


nabbing a steal and driving in
for a dunk for. the opening
score.
Minutes later, on a steal off
the press, Williams was fly-
ing high again, throwing
down a tomahawk jam that
had even the home crowd
buzzing.
He would add a three and a
less overwhelming drive in
the quarter to stake the
Kowboys to a 17-8 lead.
The Blue Streaks, after
their 15-point, fourth-quarter
comeback against Winter
Haven in Monday's tourna-
ment opening win, quickly
showed.they weren't going
away quite so easily.
Five straight points opened
,the second quarter with Joe
Young and Tevin Toney each
getting inside for a score and

Tevin Toney powers in for two of his team-high 15 points
Friday night, but the Blue Streaks couldn't rein in the
Kowboys of Osceola in the District 5-5A Tournament semifi-
nal.


Titans no match as Devils



reach district title game

Game Dragons come up short against Mulberry


By ED BALDRIDGE

AVON PARK -
Experience played the major
role as Avon Park's
Cleveland Nobles led the Red
Devils to a 66-39 victory
over Tenoroc in the Class
3A-9 District semi-final on
Friday night.
"(Nobles) played a great
Avon Park game, a bril-
liant. game,
S the best game
66 he has played
Tenoroc in his four
9 years," head
coach Luther
39 i Clemons said
after the
game. "We were short, and I
told him this is it, that he had
to step up. And he stepped
up. This is it, we are in the
play-offs."
The Titan started five
freshmen and.by..the end of
the first it was clear that top-
seed Avon Park was in con-
trol of the game.
Ranked number ten in the
state, Avon Park's 22-2 net-
ters were able toi' score at
will, and Nobles scored 13 of
his 15 points in the first half.

Clewiston thunderstruck

by Blue Streak bats


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
Gus Williams rips a two-run single in Sebring's eight-run first inning Thursday in the First
Pitch Tournament at Avon Park's Charles R. Head Field. The Streaks would score 11 more
in the third on their way to a 20-4, mercy-rule win over Clewiston.


.By DAN HOEHNE

AVON PARK First-game
jitters allowed Clewiston to
strike first Thursday night,
plating three runs to open the
First Pitch Classic at Charles
R. Head Field in Avon Park.
But nerves were soon
calmed as a blazing Blue
Streak batting order took a
bite out of the Tigers and
warmed Lip an otherwise
brisk evening.
"We've got 10 guys who
can hit," head coach Hoppy
Rewis said afterward. "They
gave us some extra outs, but
it was good to see that when
given extra chances, our guys
made the most of them."
One big chance cashed in
on was' a three-run Evan
Lewis home run to highlight
Sebring's eight-run first, in
his second at-bat of the
inning.
Lewis came through again
with a bases-loaded triple in
an 11-run third that saw a few
other run-scoring swats.
Cody Hoffner also cleared
the bases with a triple to right
center before crushing a two-,


run double to lel center later
in the frame.
Jesse Baker also added an
RBI double .to put the game
on ice.
Dylan Sanders shook off
the rough opening, where his
nerves effected his control
and a two-RBI double from
Julio Ramos got Clewiston
on the board.
From there, however, he
settled in and worked through
the Tiger order with no more
harm done in the second and
third, while his offense was
piling up the runs.
"It was his first time starting
for us," Rewis said of Sanders.
"So he was a little nervous
there early on. But after that
first inning, he calmed down
and threw real well."
Sheldon Williams came on
in the fourth and had his own
control issues in giving pp a
lone run, but worked quickly
through the fifth to ensure the
early ending.
Friday's' slate of games
was washed out by rain and
the tournament looked to
continue Saturday, weather
permitting.

Streaks can't recapture Monday's magic


Continued from 1B
Marcus Dewberry splitting a
pair of free throws to quickly
cut the deficit to four.
Antonio Benitez drove for
two, but Toby Solebello
tipped in a miss with his left
hand, Devin Clarke drove the
baseline and Demarius
Stevens hit two from the line
to even things up at 19 mid-
way through the period.
Sanchez scored for
Osceola, but Dewberry hit a
three to give the Streaks their
first lead.
The Kowboys quickly
grabbed it back when
Williams answered with a
three and Sanchez drove the
lane again.
But a 9-1 run with two
Toney tips, a Stevens three-
point play and a Clarke drive
had Sebring up 31-27 at the
half and seemingly now in'
control.
The break for intermission,
however, didn't do the
Streaks any favors, halting
that late momentum as
Osceola started the second
half as they had started the
game off and running.
Eleven straight points from
the Kowboys opened the
third to go up 38-31 before
Sebring answered with five
straight to get right back into
it.
Young answered an
Osceola score and soon con-
verted on a three-point-play


after two Kowboy hoops.
Jedarian Jackson then hit
two at the line before Toney
split a pair and Clarke canned
a 12-foot jumper to end the
period with Sebring down
just two at 46-44.
But while the effort, heart
and tenacity were there again
over the final eight minutes,
the magic of Monday night
would not be found as
Osceola again came out of
the gate fast, going on a 9-2
run that there was no coming
back from.
"We knew we could play
with them," Harris said. "I
told them to know that they
can compete with anybody
that you get on the court with
and if they know that, they
can make it a ball game and
that's what they did. But
(Osceola) is very disciplined
and very skilled, I can't take
anything away from them."
Williams lead all scorers
with 30 points on the night
while Sebring saw three
Streaks get into double fig-
ures with Toney scoring 15,
Clarke 12 and Young 10.
And so the first year going
through the new district saw
a step up in competition for
the Streaks who wound up
one game short of continuing
into the state playoffs, and
though a few players will be
lost to graduation, Sebring
will return a good nucleus
with this year of experience

Dragons can't


solve Panthers


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK Lake
Placid lost to second-seed
Mulberry 69-60 in the
District 9-3A semifinals on
Friday at Avon Park High
School.
"It's tough to lose your
last game, but six teams
have to lose their last
game," Dragon head coach
David Veley said. "I am
still proud of how the guys
played."
"We got down quick in
the game and that hurt us.
There was a little run in the
first half, but we just didn't
have the numbers," he con-
tinued. "We didn't have the
personnel to keep up with
their drive."
Mental mistakes con-
tributed to the loss, accord-
ing to Veley, and the
Dragons seemed to lag
behind in recovering in
transition.
"There were a couple of


runs where we were not in
position, and they, would
score easily, that killed us,"
Veley said. "We were taking
our time to get back on
defense, while they were
already at the other end of
the court."
Mulberry scored the
game's first 10 points, and
Panther Lee Amos scored
29 points for the game
high.
Andre Wilson scored 21
points for Lake Placid,
Thaddeus Legree hit 17 by
the end of the night and
Devontray Fleming picked
up 12 points.
With the trio in double
figures and contributions in
all areas, the game Dragons
stayed within reach most of
the night, but it was not
enough to come back on
Mulberry's push.
"Ours guys played hard
and I am proud of them, but
we just didn't have the
depth," Veley said.

Tips to relieve season's achy knees


The temperatures drop, the skies cloud
over and your knees are aching. As the winter
months continue to be unseasonably cool, the
osteoarthritis (OA) pain settles in your knees.
' While researchers aren't exactly sure why
temperature and barometric changes trigger
abhy joints, a 2007 Tufts University study
supports evidence that the two are linked.
More than 10. million Americans suffer
from OA in one or both knees. The cartilage
that protects the ends of the bones slowly
wveakens, and the synovial fluid, or joint
fluid, may lose its ability to absorb shock.
Stiffness, loss of movement and joint pain are
the result.
j, If you suffer from OA, what do you do to
ease your pain as the cold weather descends
across the country? Here are some helpful
hints to help you overcome the aches of win-
ter:
i' Regular exercise. Although it may seem
counter-intuitive, exercising an aching knee
is one of the best things you can do for it. By
keeping your knees moving you can increase
flexibility, strengthen the muscles that sup-
port the knee and help maintain a healthy.
weight. You can find detailed instructions on
knee exercises at OAKneeRelief.com includ-
ing: supine straight leg raises, short arc quad
extensions, modified partial lunges and step
ups. Talk with your doctor about which exer-
cises are best for you.
Viscosupplement injection. This treat-
ment is specifically designed for osteoarthri-
tis of the knee. It involves the injection of a
gel-like substance into the knee to supple-
ment the joint fluid and restore the shock-
absorbing properties. A single injection can
provide up to six months of pain relief and the
treatment can be repeated if the pain returns.
Typically a specialist such as an orthopaedic

surgeon provides this type of treatment.
Anti-inflammatory medications. Arthritis
. causes inflammation of the joint, and using
nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can
reduce this swelling and relieve pain. There
are options for both over-the-counter and pre-
scription products to help ease the pain.
Surgery. Usually a last resort, surgery
involves, cutting away damaged cartilage,
removing particles from the joint, or a com-
plete joint replacement, depending on the
extent of the arthritis.
If you are suffering from knee pain this
winter, make sure you ask your doctor if
osteoarthritis may be the reason and what
possible treatments might be appropriate for
you.

Smart tips for baby

retirement plan]


If you are one of America's
78.2 million baby boomers,
you are likely considering
what ideal retirement will
look like, and the steps
required achieving it. With
the current economic down-
turn, many boomers are find-
ing it necessary to revisit
their initial retirement goals.
According to the Social
Security Administration,
today's retirees count on cor-
porate pensions 'and Social
Security for 56 percent of
their retirement income. With
a few minor''.adjustments,
some careful planning and a
positive attitude, the other 44
percent is attainable.
"It's never too late to start
planning for retirement and,
it's crucial that life insurance
is considered as the founda-
tion of your plan." says Vikki
.Pryor, president and CEO at
SBLI USA Mutual Life
Insurance Company, Inc.
"Determine' your needs by
deciding how much money
surviving family or loved
ones will need to maintain
their standard of living if you
are no longer around to pro-
tect them. Women need to
pay particular attention' to
their retirement planning
options." To learn more about
the educational tools and
insurance products designed
with baby boomers in mind,


visit www.sbliusa.com.
Consider the following tips
for smart retirement plan-
ning:
1. Assess your financial
plan and budget.
Begin to assess your
basic retirement income
sources such as a 401(k)
plan, IRA, and life insurance
plans.
How much will you need
to retire? Determine this by
creating a budget that will
enable you to pay your
monthly expenses such as
food, heat, rent and trans-
portation. Consider expenses
that may increase such as
health insurance and pre-
scription medicines. At the
same time, consider those
that may decrease, such as
work-related and educational
spending.
Health care coverage is
necessary in supplementing
your financial foundation and
these costs can add up fast.
It's important to have an ade-
quate plan both before and
after retirement. After age 65
you are eligible for Medicare
coverage. But what if you
want to retire before then?
Your employer may offer a
plan for retiring employees,
or you may have to look into
private coverage, so be sure
to consider this.
Take 'into account vari-


boomer

ning

able expenses such as tax lia-
bilities on your home, illness'
or the care of-elderly parents.
Other, often underestimated,
variables include gifts, cloth-
ing, recreational expenses,
and increases in costs of liv-
ing. For valuable retirement
planning resources and pro-
jected trends in costs of liv-
ing visit www.usa.gov.
2. Begin to explore other
retirement income options.
Determine the amount of
guaranteed retirement
income you already have.
Examples of these are cash
savings, corporate pension
plans, home equity, or annu-
ity-type investments.
Are you married? If so,
how will that affect your
retirement budget?
Pay attention to how
your retirement funds are
earning money. Are they
structured for maximum
returns? It's crucial that you
continually assess these
,funds.
Decide when to begin
Social Security benefits.
According to AARP, for each
year you put off collecting
your benefits between ages
62 and 70, you increase your
payments by 8 percent.
Calculate your potential
monthly retirement budget

I subscribe to a
web site called
A.Word.A.Day with
Anu Garg. It does
what it says ...

sentence. Each
week there is a
theme and the
words relate to that


Pearl's
Gems
Pearl Carter


theme, i.e. weather, wealth,
ecology etc.
Sometimes there is an
interesting paragraph such
as the one on Jan. 18:
"Have you ever opened
a dictionary to look up a
word, only to find yourself
distracted by another word
on the page? The definition
of that word steers you to
yet another, some 200
pages ahead, and before
you know it your fingers
are cavorting as if in a ran-
dom dance on the leaves of
the lexicon." (Beautiful
prose, yes?)
This paragraph totally
resonated with me. It was
an exciting find because it
reminded me of my mother
and a poem I wrote when


she died. I called it
"Heart Cleansing:"
"Today I
cleaned my heart
out.
"I cleared my
mother's meager
apartment.
"Not easy!
"Throw out
"Discard this,
this for rummage.
"Hardly worth


the effort of going through.
"But to keep her close
still
"I cleaned seduously*
"I plowed through piece
by piece.
"I kept the Chinese
carved fake ivory jewelry
box
"Containing Stephen's
baby teeth
"And Matt's blonde
locks.
"From the dusty book-
shelves,
"I kept the dictionary
"Remembering how she
taught me to look up words.
"I caressed the cover
where her hands had
played.
"Opened the pages and
was shocked!


"Hadn't she taught me
never to deface a book?
"But scribbled in the
margins were her notes!
'Have to find another
word to understand this!'
'Lexicon ... why not
just way words!'
"She talked back to the
book!
"With wit, her sarcasm
"her smarts!
"I found my mother
again.
"I cleaned my heart out
"And found room for her
memory."
Time does heal and one
forgets the hurt and loss,
but then something like this
reminds you of the
bittersweet memories and.
you can enjoy the memory
without the pain.
*This is one of the words
I found on Wordsmith: sed-
ulous, adj. involving great-
care, effort,
persistance...one word to
cover several emotions,
activities!

The aging population
will have the second
biggest impact of any factor
on the remodeling industry
over the next five years,
according to the AARP and

to live independently in
their current homes, even if
it means remodeling to
meet their needs.
Whether you modify
your current house or pur-
chase new these are some
must-haves to ensure you'll
have a safe, secure and eas-
ily maintained home in


which to spend your golden

The largemouth bass is one of Highlands County's amazing creatures


Highlands
County is popular
for its abundant
i fishing opportuni-
ties. Anglers from
all over the coun-
try find their way
to our little sec-
tion of the Earth
to cast their lines
News From into some of our
The 113 beautiful
Watershed lakes.
Corine Burgess .-Eagerly sought
after by these
anxious anglers is the largemouth
bass, which are noted for the
excitement of their fight. The fish
' will actually become airborne in
their effort to throw a hook. The
1975, the legislature designated the
Florida largemouth bass as the offi-
cial state freshwater fish.
The largemouth (micropterus
salmiides) is a member of the sun-
fish family. Other names for the
fish are widemouth bass, bigmouth,
black bass, bucket mouth, Florida
bass, Florida largemouth, green
bass, green trout, linesides,
Oswego bass, southern largemouth
and northern largemouth.
The fish is olive green in color
and marked by a series of.dark
blotches forming a jagged horizon-
tal stripe along each flank. It is the
largest of the black basses, reach-
ing a maximum recorded length of
29.5 inches and weight of 25
pounds, 1 ounce.


When young, the largemouth.
eats mostly small bait fish, shrimp
and insects. Adult bass consume
smaller fish such as bluegill, craw-
fish, frogs, snakes, salamanders,
baby alligators.and even small ani-
mals. The adult fish enjoy deeper
water than the juveniles and as
they mature begin to feed on shad,
trout, shiners and sunfish. Their
prey can be up to 25 to 35 percent
of the bass's body length.
Studies have shown that when
bass reside in weedy areas they
grow more slowly due to difficulty
in finding their prey. When weed
cover is at a minimum, it is easier
for bass to find and catch their
prey. However, without the weeds,
bass have been known to complete-
ly annihilate the smaller fish and
other prey, which may result in
stunted growth or starvation for the
bass.
Largemouth bass are fierce
hunters and use their senses of
hearing, sight, vibration and smell
to attack and kill their prey.
Holding up to five small fish in
their huge mouths at one time, they
ar.e efficient predators when in
their habitat. They are tough fish
and, when handled properly, they
have a good survival rate when
caught and released.
They eat more often in warmer
weather. Their metabolism increas-
,es in the warmer months and they
seldom eat when water tempera-
tures are below 50 degrees. But

sight, vibration and smell to attack and kill their prey.


when the temperature of the water
rises from 68-80 degrees, they
begin to feed heavily. However,
when the water temperature rises
above 80 degrees, their feeding
declines.
Largemouths are ready to spawn
in the spring when the inshore
water temperature reaches about 60
degrees. Generally they spawn in
shallow bays, backwaters, channels
and other areas protected from the
prevailing winds. They usually
look for areas with firm bottoms of
sand, gravel, mud or rock, and usu-
ally in water from 1-4 feet deep.
But if the water is extremely clear


they may go, to deeper water.
The female will lay from 2,000
to 7,000 eggs per pound of her
body weight. She will deposit her
eggs in either one nest or can
deposit them in several different
nests, after which she leaves the
area and returns to deeper water
where she will remain for several
weeks without eating. Once the
eggs are laid, the male guards the
nest (or nests) and refuses to eat
until the eggs hatch. He will pick
up objects that land on the nest and
move them and will attack any-
thing that moves near the nest.
Panfish are the bass's worst


enemy during spawning. Small
schools will surround the nest and
when the guarding bass leaves the
nest to chase one off, the rest of
the panfish will swarm in and
indulge on the eggs. An area with a
very high population of panfish can'
hamper bass reproduction tremen-
'dously.
The eggs hatch within two days '
if the water temperature is at 72
degrees, but it could take up to five
days at 67 degrees. From 2,000 to
12,000 eggs hatch from the typical '
nest. Only about 5-10 of these '
hatchlings will ever reach a length '
of 10 inches. The male will then
guard and protect the juveniles
until they reach about an inch in
length at which time he abandons -
them. Ironically, after all this pro-
tection, the male bass will eat juve-
nile bass if he encounters them.
Largemouth bass are just one of
themany fascinating and amazing
creatures that reside in our beauti-
ful lakes. Whether the desire i's
angling for the largemouth or sirh-
ply taking in the serene beauty,
Highlands County residents are -
fortunate to have such vast
resources within their reach.

Romance will have to take backseat, Gemini


4 %a 4 .


Aries (March 21-April 20) -.
Pressures at home cause you to do a lit-
tle soul-searching, Aries. What you dis-
cover is you need rest more than any-
thing right now. So take a few days off.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) You
have a full agenda for the week, Taurus.
Part of it involves lending a helping
hand to Pisces. Finding time will be
challenging, but you'll get everything
done.
Gemini (May 22-June 21) Romance
will have to take a backseat to other
responsibilities this week, Gemini. You
will have to mend things with your
romantic partner afterward, however.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) Cancer,
you have been enjoying life in the fast
lane, but this week there are a bunch'of
stop signs ahead. Don't let it get you dis-
couraged. Home matters take prece-
dence.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) A snap of
your fingers won't have people running
this week, Leo. You will have to get
many of your tasks completed on your
own. A financial setback has you think-
ing.


H0R0SCOPE


Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) A clash of
personalities causes tension at the work-
place, Virgo. You cannot win this situa,
tion, so walk away with grace. Bosses
will be looking at your behavior.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Make a
point to visit someone you haven't seen
in a while, Libra. The stars point strong-
ly to domestic ties. An encounter at
work leaves you a little shaken up.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) You are
all business while others are having fun,
Scorpio. Loosen up ahd enjoy the party
for a while instead of being focuses on
goals and your workload.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
- Travel is in your immediate future,
Sagittarius. You had better have a bag
packed so you'll be ready to leave in a
moment's notice. Aquarius wants to
come along.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Thank


those who have come to your assistance
in the last few days. Capricorn. While
you don't relish the thought of asking
for help, offer thanks to those who pro-
vide it.
Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) Triple-
check your math, Aquarius. There are
some discrepancies in your finances that
need some clarification. Virgo has the
answers you need on Saturday.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -
Someone, you love gives you wings
when you are having trouble getting off
the ground, Pisces. Accept the help gra-
ciously.

Highlands Hammock seeking help to get rid of invasive plants


In this,
S the
Florida
Park
Service's
75th year,
we con-
tinue to
provide
The Real resource-
based
Florida recreation
Dorothy L. while pre-
Harris serving
native
ecosystems. In some areas
though, a silent invasion is
going on. Perhaps you have
noticed it or perhaps you
have not. Regardless, it is
something we continue to-
fight year after year. Let me
tell you more about this
challenge and encourage you
to consider joining us in
restoring the natural areas.
Years ago, before
Highlands Hammock ever
became one of the first state
parks in Florida, it was a
project of local citizens.
Alongside that original
Highlands Hammock Park
was the proposed site of the
Florida Botanical Garden
and Arboretum. This enor-


mous project was planned
and labor for the large array
of gardens was to be provid-
ed by the Civilian
Conservation Corps.
Hundreds of young men
worked thousands and thou-
sands of hours on the proj-
ect. They built roads, water
catchment devices and plant-,
ed unique and interesting
plant species to better deter-
mine what might grow best'
in the Florida environment.
The botanical garden proj-
ect, despite many years of
intensive labor, was never
completed. As the United
States was ramping up for
what would become World
War II, CCC camps across
the nation were closing as
the Great Depression lifted.
The gardens were left to ruin
during the war years and
later never completed. The
beginnings of the gardens
were eventually converted to
a camping area and the rest
is history.
What became of the thou-
. sands and thousands of
plants that were installed in
the test plots? Well, some of
those plants died off, never
to be seen again. Others sur-

vived and
can still be


seen here and
there around
i the camp-.'
Pground, pic-
nic area and
Wilson ranger sta-
tion. A few
species actually thrived and
became the invasive pest
plants we now battle.
With extended growing
seasons and no pests, dis-
eases or other natural factors
to keep them in check, they
grew and grew and spread
throughout the areas where
they had been originally


planted. Others became food
for the native wildlife which
inadvertently spread the
seeds even further.
With no natural checks
and balances, these plants
continue to grow and choke
out the native species.
Wildlife dependent on spe-
cific habitat needs becomes
impacted and the dominoes
begin to fall. How can we
stop this process of decline?
With determination, hand
tools and a dedicated group
of citizens willing to step in
and help out.
Travis Wilson, also known
as "Weed Killer Wilson," has
joined the Highlands
Hammock crew and is for-
mally in charge of arresting
the spread of these pest
plants. He is looking for
helpers in this effort. Wilson,
a 10-year park service vol-
unteer, has worked at four of
our state parks and really
appreciates what the park
service stands for. He under-
stands -that people want to
get involved, but sometimes
don't know how or what
they can do.

Following the enthusiastic
response to last season's hit

Broadway," Berg now brings
his new production to
Florida's heartland. This
musical revue features more
of the greatest songs from hit

century. This highly antici-
pated return engagement fea-
tures a cast of five Broadway
stars accompanied by an all-
star New York band.
101 Years of Broadway
recreates the biggest
moments from the finest
shows of the century, featur-
ing the stars of shows such as
"The Phantom of the Opera,"
"Les Miserables," "Evita,"
"CATS," "Wonderful Town,"
"Jesus Christ Superstar" and
"Fiddler on the Roof."
Andrea Rivette starred on
Broadway in Jekyll and Hyde
as Emma Carew and as Ellen,
in "Miss Saigon." Raymond

cist of the hit off-Broadway

Pauper," which ran for two
years at the Lamb's Theater
in New York City. Berg is
currently writing the music
for the Broadway bound
musical "Grumpy Old Men,"
based on the hit film. Two of
his new musicals have been
selected for the prestigious
New York Musical Theater
Festival: "The Man Who
Would Be King," a musical
realization of Rudyard
Kipling's novella, and "Tim


and Scrooge," the sequel to
"A Christmas Carol."

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
can also find smaller & more curable
-cancers which drastically increases
treatment success rate.
