L aVerne Seaman has enough stuffed
teddy bears to choke an elephant, so
she gave them away to a local chil-
dren's shelter - most of them, any-
way.
"I was born with a kid heart and I'll die with
a kid heart," said the spry 83-year-old Seaman,
during a break from playing Kings on the
Corer with friend and caretaker Ina Perry.
On Thursday, Kirsten Mamer, Children's
Home Society director of program operations,
accepted four trunk-sized boxes of stuffed ani-
mals from Seaman.

"Everything I see that a kid would want, I get
it," she said.
From all of the huggable and lovable toys she
gave away, Seaman saved a few bears and a
Mickey Mouse which were closest to her heart
- those given to her by'close family and
friends.
Dolls have come a long way, she said, recall-
ing her earliest prized possessions.
"Some you could bend them over and they'd
cry out, but you'd get no more out of them,"
Seaman said, comparing the old dolls to the few
remaining on her once covered-over couch.
Nowadays, dolls talk, sing or dance when a

board picks



new resident



for supervisor

By PHIL ATTlNGER
News-Sun
'SEBRING - Sun 'N Lake of Sebring supervisors have cho-
sen Joely Polokoff-Collard, a guidance counselor in Hardee
County, to fill the vacant supervisor seat.
A resident for a year and a half, she was chosen over Dave
Halbig, a- four-year full-time resident and 10-year property
owner, and Robert L. Campbell, who recently arrived from
California with his wife.
Campbell and Halbig were present at Friday's meeting:
Collard was not able to attend but sent a letter to General
Manager Marvin Fischer to be read on her behalf.
Supervisor John Negley liked that Collard lives in int 2,
which has had a, lot of issues needing to be addressed. Robert
Severino, board president, liked that she might bring a fresh
perspective.
"She brings something new to the board," Severino said.
"She doesn't have a whole lot of 'baggage,' if you will."
In her letter, she said she and her husband just bought a
home in Sun 'N Lake and she wants to help keep the area beau-
tiful. She plans to listen and get acquainted with the board and
its policies first before bringing in new ideas.
Collard said has been a guidance counselor for six years and
worked marketing for five years. She works full-time and may
not always be able to make a 9 a.m. meeting, but believes she
can take personal time to do that.
Supervisor John Clark did not understand how she could
spend the time required of a supervisor, despite her good inten-
tions.
Residents at the meeting didn't like having a supervisor x\ ho
has only recently bought property in the district, has not been
to a supervisors meeting - including Friday's - and works
full-rime.
Others pointed to her lack of business experience. Halbig
worked 43 years with Moll Industries, starting as a tool and die
maker and working his way up to senior vice president of oper-
ations and technology, working the last three years as a. con-
sultant on special projects.
Campbell had military experience, starting in the United
States Air Force in 1946 in law enforcement and security. He
later provided security in the private sector; worked as an asso-
ciate dean at the Army and Navy Academy in Carlsbad, Calif.;
and formed private businesses after that.
Larry Stange, president of the Sun 'N Lake Property Owners
Association, said hewould feel more at ease with someone
who's been in the district a bit longer and has already been
active in the meetings and the community.
It takes a while, he said, for longtime residents to get to
know the workings of the board, even when they have been
active in the district.
After the vote, he left the meeting.
Kay Ann Rice said Fischer's old seat is a popularly-elected

Sebring lawyer helps fire victims


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
Three sisters, two of them
pregnant, and their husbands
plus three children are sharing a
three-bedroom apartment in
Avon Park.
Rendered homeless. after a
seven-alarm fire destroyed their
apartments in DeSoto City late
Monday night, the three fami-
lies received help last week
from several charities including
the American Red Cross and a
Sebring attorney.
Alison Copley was vacation-
ing in Colorado when she called
her receptionist Edna Linares.
"Can you please meet with
them?" Copley asked Linares,
Linares said during a shopping
spree with two of the women at
Wal-Mart.
Copley gave her a budget and
on Friday Linares met with
Lupe Gonzalez and her daugh-
ter Brenda Ignaco, 4, and with
Yesina Gonzalez and her chil-
dren, Adolfo, 3, and Esmerlda
Madrid, 5 months.
The American Red Cross
provided the family with plenty

women focused on clothing for

still in their wombs. "She said her biggest neces-

Lupe Gonzalez said she was
about to go to bed around 11
p.m. Monday when she started
hearing "crackling" noises from
beneath the floor.
Looking outside, she saw the
fire.
Highlands County
Emergency Management
Director Bill Nichols told the
News-Sun, "There was not a
square inch not on fire."
The families lost everything,
including two of four vehicles.
Three men unrelated to the
Gonzalez sisters also lived at
the apartment building in
DeSoto City. They couldn't be
reached by press time.
"Alison is big-hearted when
it comes to children," Linares
said of family law attorney.
"Working in the court system
with children has been a bless-
ing for her."
Linares said each child was
allowed to pick three toys for
Christmas presents.
"It's wonderful to do all of
this," she said. "Alison is the
key, but just to do this for her is
wonderful."

Highlands County teachers
have joined the growing ranks
of national board certified
teachers. That means the district
now has 26 teachers who have
accomplished the demanding
process.
The National Board for
Professional Teaching
Standards is an independent,
nonprofit, nonpartisan organi-
zation governed by a board of
directors. That board is made up
mostly of teachers, but also
school administrators and gov-
ernment, community and edu-.
cational leaders, all from all
over the country.
Teachers who apply for
national certification have to
create a portfolio of work which
includes videotaped lessons,
student work and teacher
assessment of that work, as well
as self-evaluation. They also sit
for a three hour examination
geared to their teaching special-
ty, which tests their subject
knowledge.
The primary difference
between the national board cer-
tification and state certifications
is that state licensing sets entry
level standards for new teach-
ers, while the national board
establishes advanced standards
for experienced teachers.
A candidate has to have
taught three years before even
being eligible for the certifica-
tion process.
That process takes at least
seven months, and has to be
completed within three years.
Most candidates complete it in
about two years.
Lynn Cloud teaches culinary
arts at Avon Park High School
and is one of the nine nationally
certified teachers.
.She estimates she spent
between 200 and 300 hours
working on the portfolio which
constitutes the bulk of the certi-
fication process.
The certification is only valid
for 10 years. After that, a

SEBRING - Mobile home
parks make up one of,the most
common developments in
Highlands County, but they are
disappearing.
Growth and increased prop-
erty values have prompted
landowners to rezone mobile
home parks for other types of
development - condomini-
ums, apartments, offices or
retail. The residents own their
mobile homes, but not the lots,
so they must move.
Many can't. Retirees on
fixed incomes don't have the
money to move a mobile home,
but even if they could, most
mobile home parks won't
accept them. The homes are too
old and don't fit the aesthetic of
newer parks.
They could move into the


subjects 'to students; teachers
are responsible for managing
and monitoring student learn-
ing; teachers think systemati-
cally about their practice and
learn from experience; and
teachers are members of learn-
ing communities."
Tracy Robinson, who teaches
science at Lake Placid Middle
School, is another of the nine
teachers who just earned the
prestigious recognition.
"It's a rigorous project,"
Robinson said. "You are exam-
ining your own teaching style
:and habits, trying to make sure
everything you do goes back to
student gains and student learn-
ing."
There is a written, timed
examination.
Cloud described how the
candidates sat at computer ter-
minals in little cubicles and
answered essay questions
which tested their knowledge of
subject matter.
The question would appear
on the screen for exactly thirty
minutes. Then that question and
answer would disappear and the
next question materialize.
Cloud added the questions
alone took eight minutes to
read.
The teachers were not
jammed elbow to elbow, Cloud
said, but the room was crowded
and the sound of clacking key-
boards was loud, even distract-
ing. That is why ear plugs are
allowed when taking the test.
The portfolio portion is
divided into parts, all of which
are designed to prove mastery
of skills and an understanding
of the self as a part of the
process. That is because teach-
ing is interactive. Assessment
scores only demonstrate part of
the teaching equation. Seeing
the teacher and student work
together, is the only way to
wholly assess how well the
teacher teaches.
That means concrete evi-
dence is-a must. For example, a
video- tape :of the candi'd"te
Sactually'clearingup a misundir-.
standing.
But the video tapes cannot be
cut and pasted. They must run


new residential development,
but often the rents are too high
for anyone on a fixed income.
The Federation of
Manufactured Home Owners
may have found some relief.
The Florida Legislature is con-
sidering Senate Bill 984 to pro-
vide funds to relocate senior cit-
izens when their mobile home
parks get redeveloped.
Lee Atkins, local representa-
tive for the federation, asked
the county commission to lobby
in favor of the bill in
Tallahassee. Essentially, the bill
would authorize local govern-
ment to use housing loan assis-
tance programs, tax increment
financing, urban infill funding
and other redevelopment funds
for relocation:
Don Hazelton, federation
president, has said in press
releases that it's only fair to ask

in 15 minute portions. They
cannot be edited.
The challenge, Cloud said,
was in creating lesson plans that
created the most teaching
moments in 15 minute sessions.
The national board holds
workshops to provide guidance,
but the main source of support
comes from mentors. Those are
teachers who are already
national board certified. Both
Cloud and Robinson plan on
mentoring.
"I think it's a good process,"
Cloud said, "but it takes a lot of
thought and persistence."
"It's a very intense, but very
rewarding experience,"
Robinson said. "You're basical-
ly on' your own, but it's defi-
nitely worth the effort."
Gaining national board certi-
fication is as expensive as it is
difficult. It costs $2,300.
The state of Florida has cre-
ated the Dale Hickam
Excellence Program to defray
thosecosts. After registering for
the certification process on-
line, a candidate can sign a
promissory note and the state
1, will'pay 90 percent of the cost
upon successful ,completion.
The candidate pays the balance.
The Hickam program is
designed to keep teachers in the


classroom. If a national board
teacher stops teaching before he
or she has taught out their certi-
fication (i.e. taught 10 years),
even if they stay in the school
system as an administrator, they
have to reimburse to the pro-
gram whatever money the pro-
gram has paid.
With 7,736 national board
certified teachers, Florida cur-
rently has more national board
certified teachers than any other
state excepting North Carolina.
According to Lisa Garrison
of the district personnel office,
national board certified teachers
each receive an annual bonus,
paid at the start of the school
year, equaling 10 percent of an
average teacher salary. If they
participate in a teacher mentor-
ing program, they receive
another such bonus at the end of
the school year.
The nine new national board
certified teachers are:
* Lynn Cloud - Avon Park
High School - Career and
technical education/early ado-
lescence through young adult-


hood
* Marie Williams Daniels -
Avon Elementary School -

local government to use some
of its expected property tax
increases from commercial or
higher-cost residences to pay
for getting the displaced people
new homes.
County Commissioner Bob
Bullard said this kind of help is
certainly needed. Viking
Village in Lake Placid, for
example, was one example
where residents either did not
have adequate warning or fund-
ing to relocate.
The developer wanted to
build condominiums, but resi-
dents had no means to leave.
Similar situations have exist-
ed more and more frequently
over the last six years as more
coastal residents have looked at
making Highlands County a
permanent address and not just
a weekend getaway.

Congress passes $8 billion in tax



breaks for Gulf Coast businesses


By MARY DALRYMPLE
AP Tax Writer
WASHINGTON
Congress passed nearly. $8 bil-
lion in tax breaks for Gulf Coast
businesses on Friday but denied
federal help for casinos, liquor
-stores and golf courses.
Almost four months after
Hurricane Katrina slammed
into the coast, destroying busi-
nesses and jobs, lawmakers
responded to President Bush's
appeal for revitalizing the
region with a special
enterprise zone.
Both the House
and Senate passed
the bill by voice vote
on Friday.
"It'll help to get
our local government
back on its feet, and
it'll help to get our
businesses incen-
tivized to come
back," said Rep.
William Jefferson, One
D-La. "It'll make a
huge contribution to Katri
restoring and rebuild-

ing our city."
The tax breaks for brought

there. Companies can gency

the payroll even
while shut down due to storm

Numerous recreational busi-
nesses would be prohibited
from using the special tax
breaks. The list puts limitations

more than 60 other

makers in the

to victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Those included expanded abili-
ties to recoup casualty losses
and withdraw retirement funds
without penalty.
The bill also incorporates
some other unfinished tax busi-
ness. It would extend an expir-
ing law that lets soldiers count
their combat pay toward the
earned income tax credit, a ben-
efit designed to pull low-
income workers out of poverty.

culture industry, state officials said.
The commercial groves might have to be
destroyed, according to a preliminary study pre-
sented this week to the U.S. Department of
Agriculture by state and citrus industry leaders.
The majority of the trees that would need to be
removed are south and east Lake Okeechobee.
"I was stunned," said Craig Meyer, deputy
agriculture commissioner.


If the findings are correct, the number of acres
that must be bulldozed would be raised to about
265,000. There are about 750,000 commercial
acres of citrus in the state now.
The assumptions are based on the premise that
the only way to get rid of the disease is to cut and
bum infected trees and those nearby.
Dan Richey, Vero Beach grower and co-chair
of the federal-state citrus canker task force, said
he was not surprised by the preliminary report.
"It didn't take a real genius to figure out we
were in probably in trouble, Richey said.
Disease spread by Wilma will not start show-
ing up on trees until early next year.
Citrus growers will meet next week to discuss
strategies.

Mother


and three


teens left


homeless


after fire

Arson suspected
By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SEBRING - As Tammy
Wilcox watched firefighters try
to save her home, the single-
mother of three and restaurant
manager expressed two con-
cerns - how to tell her children
and where to hold the
Christmas party.
Wilcox, who was ,at work
Friday morning, received a call
from her neighbor, who told her
that her residence was on fire.
The neighbor reported the
fire at 8:29 a.m.
Elbert "Biki" Jackson III,
drove Wilcox from work to her
home, where she watched the
effort as tears welled in her
eyes.
"What am I going to tell the
kids?" she asked DeeDee
Randall, a friend and co-work-
er. "Everything they have is in
there."
Her children, who are 12, 14,
and 15 years old, were at
school.
Jackson, who was among at
least three co-workers provid-
ing moral support to Wilcox,
said the International House of
Pancake crew is family as much
as employees.
"We'll help her," Jackson
said. "She and her family will
have a place to stay. This is
sad."


OBITUARIES


KEVIN J. SHUTT/News-Sun
A volunteer fire captain enters a home on Bristol Street in Sebring
during a Friday fire, which investigators later would deem suspi-
cious.


Wilcox, who rents from Bill
Lees, has lived at 3208 Bristol
St. about 1 1/2 years.
Lees arrived at his property, a
few minutes after the first
engine - Q-7 from Sun 'N'
Lake Volunteer Fire
Department - around 8:45 a.m.,
providing the firefighters with
keys so they wouldn't have to
force entry.
"It looks like they're back in
the kitchen area," Lees said, as
he tried to determine where the
fire occurred. "This is terrible."
Flames weren't visible from
the street but smoke poured
from the attic eaves, increasing
after the front door was opened.
Detective Eugene Walker, of
the state fire marshal's office,
suspects arson, he said Friday


afternoon.
Because foul play is suspect-
ed, Walker wouldn't disclose
details as to where the fire was
or whether an accelerant was
used.
The fire caused $40,000 in
property and content damage,
mostly from smoke and heat,
Walker said.
Randall said anybody wish-
ing to donate basic necessities
could contact her at 382-8870
or 382-8165.
Randall said Wilcox was to
host the employee party
Tuesday and another one
Thursday for their children.
"I guess there's not going to
be a Christmas party Tuesday,"
Wilcox said.

Traffic stop turns into drug trafficking arrest


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
AVON PARK - A simple
traffic stop turned into a traf-
ficking arrest on Tuesday after-
noon.
When it was done, Highlands
County sheriff's deputies had
charged three men with drug
possession charges, including
one charged with trafficking
methamphetamine.
Andre Pablo
Alvarado, 18,
of Avon Park,
faces traffick-
ing of metham-
phetamine, the
possession of
the drug with
ALVARADO intent to sell or
deliver, and
possession of drug parapherna-
lia. Bond is set at $30,500..
.Also in the
car with him
was Terry Lee
-A, 4 Light, 22, of
Avon Park,
. . charged with
possession of
both metham-
LIGHT phetamine and
drug parapher-
nalia. His bond was $1,500. The
driver, James Austin Rimer, 24,
was charged
with posses-
sion of
S cannabis and
drug parapher-
nalia, and with
possession of
ammunition by
a convicted
felon. His bond is $6,000.
While patrolling, at 1 p.m.
Dec. 13, on Sabal Palm Avenue
in Sebring, a deputy stopped a
teal Mercury that didn't have its
license tag displayed. Rimer
told the deputy he had a tempo-
rary tag for it, but didn't know
what happened to it.
He had paperwork showing
the car had been bought on Oct.
10, 2005. The temporary tag
had expired on Nov. 10 and he
said he hadn't gone to register
the car.
The deputy arrested him for
failure to register a motor vehi-
cle. While searching him, the

funeral home.


deputy found a cellophane ciga-
rette wrapper containing a
green leafy substance that field-
tested positive for cannabis. It
weighed 0.9 grams.'
When the deputy first
stopped the car, he noticed that
Light, in the front seat, and
Alvarado, in the back, were
restless. According to arrest
reports, they were moving
around as if placing items on
the floor or under the seats.
After searching the car,
another deputy found a
Marlboro cigarette pack con-
taining a partially-smoked
cannabis cigarette on the center
console. A black T-shirt pushed
partially under the front passen-
ger seat turned out to be
wrapped around a clear plastic
container that held a clear crys-
talline substance, arrest reports
said.
The substance field-tested
positive for methamphetamine,
reports said.
Deputies also found a plastic
medial syringe in the shirt. It
had a clear liquid in it that also
tested positive for methamphet-


amine, reports said.
By the front passenger seat,
next to the door, a deputy found
a bent metal spoon, and on the,
front passenger floorboard,
three .22-caliber long rifle bul-
lets.
When the deputy found the
bullets, he asked Rimer if he
was a convicted felon.
According to arrest reports,
Rimer answered yes and said
the bullets belonged to his
uncle, allegedly without being
able to see the ammunition.
In the rear floorboard, a
deputy found a clear plastic bag
covered by a work glove. In the
bag was about 30 grams of the
same crystalline substance,
reports said.
In the driver's side floor-
board, reports said deputies
found a a pack of French Light
cigarette papers, similar to the
one on the cannabis cigarette.
Once at the Highlands
County Jail, Alvarado allegedly
told a deputy that the metham-
phetamine was his alone, and
the other two were not involved
with it.


Investigators with the
Criminal Investigations
Division immediately inter-
viewed Alvarado, who alleged-
ly repeated that the metham-
phetamine was his alone, which
he intended to sell to make
money. He allegedly didn't
know about any other drugs.
When interviewed, Rimer
,allegedly said the cannabis in
his pocket was his and he didn't
know anything about any other
drugs or who owned the black
T-shirt.
Light did not want to talk
without having a lawyer pres-
ent.


Visitation will be from 4-6
p.m. Monday with Elks servic-
es at 5 p.m. at Scott Funeral
Home, Lake Placid. Funeral
service will be at 11 a.m.
Tuesday at the funeral home.

News-Sun, Sunday, December 18, 2005


By ELAINE SEDLOCK
News-Sun
SEBRING - Vocational
Rehabilitation, an agency of the
Florida Department of
Education, not only provides
services needed for obtaining
and maintaining emplloyment to
Floridian.s ail disabilities, .but
-- now. through volunteerism,
offersr s individuals an opportuni-
ty to receive clerical training,
develop office skills, and
acquire experience to add to
resumes along with a letter of
recommendation.
Jose Laina, vocational reha-
bilitation unit supervisor, is
now recruiting volunteers to
work in their Sebring office.
"Basically," he said, "they
will be performing light clerical
work - such as answering the
phone, taking messages, filing,
making copies and things like
that."
This would give young
adults in the community experi-
ence and training, possibly
opening windows of opportuni-
ty to them as they start out in
the workforce that they other-
wise wouldn't have. It also
offers individuals who may
have been removed from the
workforce for an extended peri-
od of time, such as homemakers
and senior citizens, desiring to
re-enter the job market a better
opportunity as well.
"A lot of times people get
stuck in a daily rut and getting
out and interacting with other
people can be a real ego boost-
er," Laina said. "Doing some-
thing productive and socializ-


ing outside the home can also'
help prevent depression by pre-
occupying people with other
things, keeping their minds off
of their problems."
Laina understands that doing
something new and unfamiliar
may be intimidating and that
various concerns may dissuade,
people from volunteering. For
people with concerns he said
that no one interested should let
anything prevent them from


pursuing the opportunity.
"There is no experience
required," he said, "We will
train them in everything they
need to know. If they don't have
the proper clothing, that is noth-
ing to worry about either - we
have resources to provide that."
The. center is ppen Mltndaol
through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m., which allows people to
work flexible days and hours.
Call Jose Laina at 386-6077.


Recycling - Plastic in,



but glass is still out


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Local resi-
dents hoping to recycle glass
containers in the near future
will have to wait.
While the Highlands County
Recycling Program has been
able to put plastic containers
back on the list, starting in
January, but glass is still too
expensive to recycle locally.
Christy Reed, recycling pro-
gram manager, told the
Highlands County
Homeowners Association on
Monday that glass has several
problems. Most important, the
county doesn't get enough
financial return to make all the
effort worthwhile.
The county can only recycle
glass containers. Work release
jail inmates sort the glass by
color , but the county has extra
liability because the material is
dangerous. Companies can
refuse a load of glass for any
reason, such as the wrong kind
of glass in the load.
Reed said they would often
send a truck load, by color, to
Manatee County and receive a
refund check for only $168 in
about nine months. Plastic, for
now, has a market, she said.
It's always a commodity
where the price goes up and
down, Solid Waste
Management Director Ken
Wheeler said. Recycling plastic
liquid containers should help
preserve space in the landfill.
Plastic has shape memory. It
can be compressed, but it will
pop back into shape as soon as
the pressure is relieved. Glass,
on the other hand, breaks into
smaller pieces.
Vaughan 'Whitesides of
Buttonwood Bay asked if the
county landfill could crush the
glass for road material, the way
it crushes concrete and brick.
That's one option, Wheeler
said.
Residents also asked about a
deposit, but Wheeler said that's


a Florida
Legislature
decision. "
When he
had a farm
in upstate
New York,
Wheeler
recalled .
run n i n g WHEELER
over bottles ___
several
times while mowing the
frontage of his property, despite
the state having a nickel
deposit.
He thinks 25 cents per bottle
will ensure a better return.
Education will be a big help,
he said. A lot of people don't
recycle what they can. The
county deploys white bins for
cardboard, magazines, steel and
aluminum. Some will be refit-


ted for plastic containers.
Phone book recycling is done
each winter season through the
county by Sprint. Newspaper
Dumpsters are available, but do
not accept mail, magazines, cat-
alogues, plastic, string, tape,
wire, bags, boxes, or phone
books.
Right now, the county does
not have curbside or on-
demand-pickup recycling.
Doing that would add to the
cost of the county's contract
with solid waste haulers.
However, Wheeler said, if peo-
ple want it, he could- see if it
would be worthwhile.
When asked by one older
lady about making 'recycling
Dumpsters easier to open,
Wheeler said he could look into
that.

Help for the veterans


-~ I-~.

Courtesy photo
The Knights of Columbus is once again providing a collection of gifts to area veterans. Fourth
Degree leader, Sir Knight, Michael Bastile (left) and Sir Knight Andy Mish recently loaded a van
full of items frqm members and bingo players who support the Veterans Services with men's and
ladies' items, as well as books, tapes and CDs, socks and money. The bingo proceeds were used to
buy phone cards that allow the veterans to 'phone loved ones over the Christmas season.'

What is a VA burial allowance?


A Veterans Administration
burial allowance is a partial
reimbursement of an eligible
veteran's burial and funeral
costs. When the cause of death
is not service-related, the reim-
bursement is generally
described as two payments: (1)
a burial and funeral expense
allowance and (2) a plot inter-
ment allowance.
Who is eligible? You may be
eligible for a VA burial
allowance if:
* you paid for a veteran's
burial or funeral and
* you have not been reim-
bursed by another government
agency or some other source
such as the deceased veteran's
employer and
* the veteran was discharged
under conditions other than dis-
honorable.
In addition, at least one of the
following conditions must be
met:

Macbeth: Ordinance to hold right of way problematic


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Highlands
County needs more roads, and
more land for them.
The long-range transporta-
tion committee has suggested
passing an ordinance to pre-
serve potential right of way, but
Ross Macbeth, county attorney,
said it could interfere with
landowners' development
rights.
Essentially, the ordinance
would prevent development
within so many feet of designat-
ed corridors for roads. The
county could defend this around
existing right of way, such as


U.S. 27, but not for future roads
that have not even been
designed yet. Macbeth said.
That's the same as taking a
person's property riglhs without
buying the property, Macbeth
said. He would prefer the coun-
ty have a clearly defined route,
a financial commitment to build
the road, and the will to buy the
land now.
If the county commission is
ready to buy land now, there's
no need for the ordinance, h6
said.
County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete said he can't defend
the ordinance for new road cor-
ridors because he has no align-


ment designs to show a judge
\Ahere the road will be.
Two roads the ordinance is
meant to project are Avon Paik
PaL kway and County Road 635.
They both head north and south
though developed and devel-
oping areas. The parkway
extension would be expensive
just from having to buy already
developed land in Avon Park.
Neither one have been
through a planning, design and
engineering study, Gavarrete
said, nor does he have staff to
do that right now.
"We don't know how serious
we are until the (county conm-
mission) says, 'Let's go buy it,'


" Gavarrete said.
Mick Grosh, director of
development for Sun. 'N Lake
of Sebring Improvement
District, said his district super-
Sisors support the need for C.R.
635 but don't agree yet on
where the road should be.
Cortez Boulevard is out of
the question because people
have started building houses
there. Balboa Boulevard and
Genoa Avenue are options, but
he needs a clearly defined route
that also avoids scrub jay habi-
tat.
As designed, C.R. 635 would
have to run through the eastern
edge of Highlands Hammock


State Park. To date, the Divisioni
of State Lands has said no to
any land purchase or swap.
Development Services
Director Jim Polatty said the
county looked at extending
C.R. 635 nearly six years ago,
but when residents and state
agencies opposed it. county
commissioners turned it down.
In the 1960s, he said, local gov-
ernment bought up right of way
along U.S. 27 for widening the
road.
Highlands County could eas-
ily face a moratorium on devel-
opment along U.S. 27 before
being able to build suitable
alternative routes, Polatty


warned.
Gavarrete said it could still
take 10 years to get a road built
after doing studies to define it.
Right now-the-Lounty has 47
road improvements or new
roads in the long range plan that
are needed in the next 20-30
years.
Committee member John
Bock suggested the county
could save 20 percent of its traf-
fic by routing semitrailers to a
western bypass. Dr. Hilary
Swain of Archbold Biological
Station, however, renewed her
request to have that bypass
taken off the plan since it would
run through or beside rare or
protected lhab.ita


Sebring Regional Airport lines up several projects


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Sebring
Regional Airport has a lot of
development going on at its
facility.
The Sebring Airport
Authority has several economic
development projects in plan-
ning or building stages. Pete
McDevitt told the Economic
Development Commission this
week that the airport plans to
design an expansion of the
north-south runway to make it
more attractive to larger planes,
especially passenger planes.
Other plans are as follows:
Aviation Education
A conceptual site plan was
presented to the airport authori-
ty on Oct. 10 for a building for
the Aviation Education


Foundation Inc. lThe tenant is
now working on civil and archi-
tectural drawings.
E-Stone
Anyone driving into the air-
port on Havwood Taylor
Boulevard can see the E-Stone
manufacturing and distribution
facility being built on the north
side of the road. The company
has reported that the' first con-
tainer of manufacturing equip-
mnent from Italy has arrived and
more will arrive in the coming
weeks. It plans to be operational
by the first of the year.
New company.
For an unnamed company
planning to move to Sebring, a
proposed location has been
moved to the east side of
Ulmann Drive at the airport.


The company will employ
approximately 50 people in a
50,000 square foot rail-served
facility. The airport is applying
for grants to extend rail to the
east side of Ulannm Drive.

Taxiway
Design is complete on a new
taxiway. Post, Buckley, Schuh
and Jernigan Inc. is reviewing
the design, and when that's
done, it will be sent to the air-
po'rt authority and the Federal
Aviation Administration for
review. The FAA has reported
funding may be available in
.June 2006.
Concrete products
Concrete Building Products
Inc. has executed a lease with
the airport. The next step will
he for them to submit a site plan


lor review.
Haywood Taylor Boulevard
Only signs and landscaping
are left to do on laywood
Taylor Boulevard, but the low-
est bid has far exceeded avail-
able funding. so the airport is
makingg with the county on
resolving that. Meanwhile,
Post, Buckley, Schul anti
Jernigan Inc. has completed a
preliminary alignment for the
road extension and is waiting
on survey inlornmalion to pro-
ceed.
GenPak
Airport staff is working with


GenPak to expand the Sebring
plant. That means more land for
a warehouse and office build-
ing, upgrading existing infra-
structure, and realigning
Webster Turn along the east
edge of the drainage canal.
Other projects
The airport authority is still
trying to acquire the Davis
Land to the north of the airport
for a new runway. The airport
authority also is working with
the county to provide a natural
gas pipeline to the airport.
There is a draft wildlife study
in the works for the airport


property. At the same time, the
county commission has created
an airport zoning category and
an application is ready to
rezone the commerce park to
industrial.
The Florida Local
Government Finance
Commission loan package has
been approved for the third
phase of T-hangars and com-
mercial hangars. It has now
been sent to the governor's
office for approval.
Finally, the commerce park
should see a new anchor tenant.
M.I. Homes Inc. has decided
not to be a part of the project.

Seaman was sure they were

"Mom gave us each a doll,"
she said, letting a smile
escape. "They were the cutest

She told her mother, who
assured her it was OK. The
dolls were designed to do that.
Seaman offered her dona-

local children might go with-
out presents at Christmas.
* "I love children," Seaman
said. It'll make me happy."
Perry said she hopes to
bring Seaman to the Hansen

reiterated. "I've enjoyed life

Off target
Let'> be clear right from the
start. Putting a gun in my hand
and turning me loose, is an act
of folly about on a par with
putting the Three Stooges in
charge of national defense.
I was introduced to weapons
while in the Coast Guard, but
back then (30 years ago) we
were still rescue experts and
pot yet the Smokies of the
Seas
The only gun I ever used
professionally, and then only
once, was a line gun.
So the only thing I was
thinking, as I pulled into the
barking lot of Jim's
istolarrow indoor gun range
his weeAl was, please don't let
ne ,hooi mN self in the foot.
It turned out I didn't have to
worry. Couldn't hit my foot if
i pressed the gun to my shoe.
|Well, that's a slight exagger-
ation. But using a Smith &
Wesson .38, my first six shoots
missed the target altogether.
And the target, I'm embar-
rassed to.admit, was only 24
|feet away.
After that I did at little bet-
ier. Three shots at least went
through the paper, but missed
the silhouette. Then I clustered
six shotsin the left shoulder
area. But of course I had been
aiming for the heart.
Only 'ito shots, a head shot,
and a ght shot, would have
stopped the target cold, if the
target had been an intruder and
I was in fear of my life. And
those were only by happy acci-

More bang for the buck


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING - Jim and Carm
Morris moved up to Highlands
County from Hialeah 34 years
ago.
Morris worked for Scotty's
Lumberyard at the time. Over
the years, however, he became
unhappy.
Then he said, in the middle of
one night, he woke up his wife
to tell her, "I know what I want
to do. I want to build a family
oriented indoor gun range."
When morning came, Carm
Morris asked her husband if he
had woke her up in the middle
of the night to tell her what he
wanted to build a gun range.
He said yes.
And so their adventure
began.
It didn't come easy. First
there was the problem of get-
ting permission and funding.
Carm Morris told of one
banker who pulled them aside
and warned, "You're out of
your minds. This thing will
never -fly."
Then there were the prob-
lems to solve in turning a strip
mall into a safe shooting range.
But throughout it all, the
Morrises held on to their vision,
and Jim's Pistolarrow Indoor
Gun Range just celebrated 16
years of operation.
Four years ago, the Morrises
decided they'd had enough of
the responsibility, and sold the
business to Doug Barnes. But
they couldn't walk way from
the fun of the place, and so have,
stayed on as managers.
The range is a family orient-
ed business. Children are.. wel.

Yianni's offers a prime choice


Former Olympic owners
open new restaurant
By SUE ANN CARPENTER
Neis-Sun correspondent
SEBRING - Yianni's Prime Choice Bar and
Grill has a double meaning. It means that not
only the best meats are offered, but you've made
a prime choice when choosing to dine at Yianni's,
which is the Greek word for "Johnny."
The owners are John and Mary' Emanoilidis,
and Jimmy and Maria Tsakalos.
"I moved here in 1979 and built the Olympic
Restaurant in Avon Park. Eight years ago, we
sold it to Jimmy and Maria. We've been togeth-
er in business for 25 years, and always supported
the local community, holding benefits for the
schools, police, sheriff, and fire departments,"
John Emanoilidis said.
They all felt it was time to move into a more
upscale restaurant. Previously it was Savannah's
Restaurant, but over the past three months,
they've completely remodeled it. An authentic
wood-fire open pit is in the dining room where
steaks and chops can be grilled on oak, hickory
and citrus to produce a clean fire. The menu is
steak and seafood, but they also offer pastas and
salads.
Yianni's has created a beautiful new atmos-
phere, where it offer good service, good food,
hospitality and reasonable prices. Its meats, fish
and wine selections are displayed in a cooler as a


TARGET
Continued from 13A
dent.
Put another way, I won't be
applying to the sheriff's office
or any other law enforcement
agency, any time soon.
And I wouldn't make it as a
gun instructor either.
I saw that quickly when I
returned to the Pistolarrow
Thursday night to watch the
Bowling Pin Shoot.
I didn't take part because the
shooters were serious minded,
and a whole lot more capable
than I am.
The point of the contest is to
shoot bowling pins, in a certain
fixed order.
The pins are tied to ropes
and hung in rows from the
ceiling. In the beginning they
_ hang straight and are still. But
-once the game gets under way,
depending on the caliber of the
gun and the velocity of the bul-
let, the pins begin to dance on
the end of their strings.
So a shooter using a .22, fol-
lowing a shooter who used a
.45, has a real challenge as the
small target swings back and
forth.
The Bowling Pin Shoot has
been a Pistolarrow fixture
since the range opened 16
years ago. But one of the regu-
lar members, Marty Raskin,
came up with a Christmas ver-
sion of the game.
The pins are painted in solid
red or green, or in red and
green combinations. The shoot-
er gets to shoot six rounds
three times each turn. He or
she has to shoot solid or mixed
color pins in an alternating
order.
A shooter earns 20 points for
every correct pin hit. There are
no deductions for misses or
wrong flits.
However, time is factored
into the equation, because a
shooter's time is deducted
from the pin score. This means
a person has to be fast as well
as accurate.
In a small aside. At one
point in the action, a shooter's


customer enters. And there's a big variety of
steaks to choose from such as top sirloin, .New
York strip, delmonico, T-bone, filet mignon,
porterhouse, kabobs, chopped sirloin and prime
rib of beef. For seafood, there are broiled or
blackened choices such as Gulf grouper, North
Atlantic salmon, filet de sole, swordfish, Gulf
snapper, stuffed filet of sole, jumbo fried shrimp,
shrimp scampi, charcoal grilled sl---
Maryland soft shell crabs, rock lobster tails au
Alaskan king crab. If reef or beef aren't your
favorites, then try the chicken breast,
Mediterranean chicken, grilled quail, pork chops,
veal chops, lamb chops, baby back ribs, or ham
steak.
Top it all off with gourmet coffee and one of
their celebrated homemade desserts.
"We're restaurateurs and are here every day
making sure everything is of the highest quality.
There's seating for 250 people. We want to hire
professionals, but we'll also train them. We're
'hands on' people," John Emanoilidis said.
They believe now is the perfect time to offer
Yianni's. People in Highlands County no longer
have to drive two hours away to Tampa or
Orlando to get something of this quality. People
who know the Emanoilidis and Tsakalos families
are excited about this new restaurant.
Yianni's Prime Choice Bar and Grill is at 3750
U.S. 27 North in the Fairmount Cinema shopping
center. Call 385-9222 for details. Hours of opera-
tion are 4-10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and
4-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.


.22 jammed and had to be
fixed. During the break, I
asked for permission to walk
onto the range and take a
close-up picture of one of the
pins.
Well, it turned out to be a
difficult photograph. The pin
was swinging in arid out of
focus, and when I zoomed in to
capture the bullet holes and
splintered wood, you couldn't
tell it was a bowling pin.
So I was pretty focused on
what I was doing when Jim
Morris, who built and still
operates the gun range and was
the game's umpire, sounded
the timer that starts the game.
He had hoped to scare me
into thinking someone was
about to shoot. But I was con-
centrating so hard the sound
went right over my head and I
'paid it no attention.
He took this as a sign of
courage, when what it really
was, was tunnel vision.
What I found the hardest to


adjust to, was not being able to
see the bullet travel. Throw a
ball and you can track it visu-
ally. It makes it possible to
adjust your throw. But with
guns and bullets, there's a loud
bang and either a hole appears
in the target or it doesn't. I felt
disconnected and couldn't fig-
ure out how to fix what I was
doing wrong.
It turned out people have
more to fear if they are stand-
ing behind and slightly to the
left of whatever I'm actually
aiming at, than they do if I
point a gun directly at them.
Which is why I say when it
comes to guns, it's a case of
Larry, Curly, Moe and me.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protec-
tion gives notice of its intent to issue a permit
(File No. 28-0238833-001) to U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers, to modify the existing
CSX railroad by providing an elevated single
tract railroad bridge that will allow restoration
of the historic'Kissimmee River channel near
the boundary between Highlands and Okee-
chobee County. In order to allow for contin-
ued operation of the existing railroad system,
a temporary detour track will be constructed
immediately north of the existing track. This
project is part of the overall Kissimmee River
Restoration Project.
The activity is located 0.55 mile southeast
of the grade crossing at C.R. 721 and 0.75
mile northwest of Canal C-38 at the historic
Kissimmee River between Highlands and
Okeechobee Counties, Florida.
The application is available for public in-
spection during normal business hours, 8:00
a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, ex-
cept legal holidays, at the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection, Port St. Lucie
Branch Office, 1801 SE Hillmoor Drive, Suite
C-204, Port St. Lucie.
The Department will issue the permit with
attached conditions unless a timely petition
for an administrative hearing is filed under
sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes, before the deadline for filing a peti-
tion. The procedures for petitioning for a hear-
ing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the Department's action may peti-
tion for an administrative proceeding (hear-
ing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida'Statutes. The petition must contain the
information set forth below and must be filed
(received by the clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at-3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-3000.
Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the Florida
Administrative Code, a person whose sub-
stantial interests are affected by the Depart-
ment's action may also request an extension
of time to file a petition for an administrative
hearing. The Department may, for good cause
shown, grant the request for an extension of
time. Requests for extension of time must be
filed with the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000, before the applicable deadline. A
timely request for extension of time shall toll
the running of the time period for filing a peti-
tion until the request is acted upon. If a re-
quest is filed late, the Department may still
grant it upon a motion by the requesting party
showing that the failure to file a request for an
extension of time before the deadline was the
result of excusable neglect.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing is filed, other persons
whose substantial interests will be affected by
the outcome of the administrative process
have the right to petition to intervene in the
proceeding. Intervention will be permitted on;
ly at the discretion of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion in compliance with
rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Administrative
Code.
In accordance with rule 62-110.106(3)(a)
F.A.C., petitions for an administrative hearing
by the applicant must be filed within 14 days
of receipt of this written notice. Petitions filed
Ity any persons other than the applicant, and
otherr than those entitled to written notice ur-
der section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes
- fiust be filed within 14 days of publication of
the notice or within 14 days of receipt of the
written notice, whichever occurs first. Under
section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes,
however, any person who has asked the De-
partment for notice of agency action may file a
petition within 14 days of receipt of such no-
tice, regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the peti-
tion to the applicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The failure of any
person to file a petition for an administrative
hearing within the appropriate time period
shall constitute a waiver of that person's right
to request an administrative determination
(hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statutes.
A petition that disputes the material facts
on which the Department's action is based
must contain the following information: -
(a) The name and address of-each agency af-
fected and each agency's file or identification
number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone number
of the petitioner; the name, address, and tele-
phone number of the petitioner's representa-
.tive, if any, which shall be the address for
service purposes during the course of the pro-
ceeding; and an explanation, of how the peti-
tioner's substantial interests are or will be af-
fected by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the petition-
er received notice of the agency decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of mate-
rial fact. If there are none, the petition must so
indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts
alleged, including the specific facts that the
petitioner contends warrant reversal or modi-
fication of the agency's proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes
that the petitioner contends require reversal or
modification of the agency's proposed action;
and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the pe-
titioner, stating precisely the action that the
petitioner wishes the agency to take with re-
spect to the agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the materi-
al facts on which the Department's action is
based shall state that no such facts are in dis-
pute and otherwise shall contain the same in-
formation as set forth above, as required by
rule 28-106.301.
Under sections 120.569(2)(c) and (d) of
Sthe Florida Statutes, a petition for administra-
t live hearing must be dismissed by the agency
if the petition does not substantially comply
with the above requirements or is untimely
filed.
Mediation is not available in this proceed-
ing.
This intent to issue constitutes an order of
the Department. Subject to the provisions of
paragraph 120.68(7)(a) of the Florida Stat-
utes, which imay require a remand for an ad-
ministrative hearing, the applicant has the
right to seek judicial review of the order under
section 120.68 of the Florida Statutes, by the
filing of a notice of appeal under rule 9.110 of
the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with


the Clerk of the Department in the Office of
General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida,
32399-3000; and by filing a copy of the notice
of appeal accompanied by the applicable filing
fees with the appropriate district court of ap-
peal. The notice of appeal must be filed within
30 days from the date when the order is filed
with the Clerk of the Department.

PAUSE AND CONSIDER

Jan Merop

The 'give' in

forgiveness
Sometimes we give gifts
that we don't even realize
we're giving and then they
come back to bless us.
As a young mother, I
experienced the heartache of
divorce. My sorrow deep-
ened for my innocent child
suffering his own pain
alongside me.
Disappointments, such as
when his father didn't show
up for a promised visit,
clouded my son's world.
We'd commiserate together
and then I'd talk to him
about forgiveness.
This concept is difficult
for adults to grasp let alone
for a child..I chose my
words thoughtfully, trusting
God to help me explain it to
him; as I also sought to live
it before him.
I recall handling it by val-
idating his feelings while
pointing out that if he held
the hurt in his heart, it
would get worse and he
would be miserable. For his
own good and for the man
he would become some day,
it was crucial for me to nur-
ture a believing heart in him
- one that trusted God in'
spite of what life might send
his way. I said something to
this effect, "God doesn't
want us to hold anger or
mean feelings toward.some
one else and, when we let
him, Jesus will help us over-
come our feelings and show
kindness. In a way, it's like
we need to feel sorry for
daddy and pray for him
because he is missing so
much with us."
Then we'd pray.
After a time it became
easier for him to let God '
handle things that weren't in
our control - lifting him
above his misery and free-
ing him, one episode at a
time, from unforgiveness.
Today, he is a forgiving per-
son who helps others to
understand this truth.
On Christmas Day, God
.held out the olive branch of
forgiveness in the gift of his'
Son, Jesus Christ - fulfilled
through his death and resur-
rection on our behalf.
"In him we have redemp-
,tion through his blood, the
forgijene;ss of sins, in accor-
dance with the riches of
God's grace that he lavished
on us with all wisdom and
understanding." (Ephesians
1: 7 & 8, NIV)
Such love and forgiveness
is beyond our understanding
- but so necessary for our
wholeness. Perhaps this
Christmas, we not only need
to receive it, but to give it.
One day, as we talked
about his growing up years,
my young adult son said to
me, "I know that divorce
had to be really traumatic
for you and that you suf-
fered a lot of things. But,
Mom, somehow, you kept
the trauma from me."
This is the "give" in for-
giveness that is ongoing. I,
treasure my son,s words as
a gift and, like Mary, ponder
them in my heart.
Give and receive forgive-
ness this Christmas. Selah.

Eisnaugle draws from family life to write book of story poems


By SUE ANN CARPENTER
*News-Sun correspondent . '
SEBRING - Linda Eisnaugle has created a charm-
ing book of story poems entitled "Footprints in the
Pies."
They are drawn from her family life and her early
childhood on her grandfather's ranch in Lake Placid.
She and her husband own Quiznos in Sebring, and they
have five children who are featured in her book.
"Eric and his wife, Terry, are both attorneys in
Orlando now, having met at Vanderbilt Law School.
Mindy owns and operates a modeling agency in
Nashville. Ian, who gave up his nickname of 'Crash' at
age 16 when he started driving, is now a junior at
Florida State. Morgan is a graduate of Sebring High
School and he plans to enroll at the community college.
Megan, the youngest at 16, has Downs syndrome, and
is a freshman at Sebring High. She loves everybody
and everybody loves her," Eisnaugle said.
S"These stories came to me as I reminisced about the
past and my childhood. My favorites are the Castles of
Eis. These are based on my kids' mishaps, with a
medieval tone. The Little Miss Margaret stories were
events experienced as a child. The album collection
includes some odds and ends, like when a teacher
friend found a snake in her bathroom," Eisnaugle said.
SEisnaugle has written a second book. She says it will
be similar to "Footprints in the Pies." They will be
story poems plus some short vignette stories. They will
be entertaining of course, but also serious - about real


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Suni
Linda Elisnaugle, of Sebring, reads with her daughter
Megan, 16.

people living through and overcoming their difficulties.
These stories will emphasize the heart and soul.
SWith degrees in English and music, Eisnaugle teach-
es reading, critical-thinking skills and music apprecia-
tion at Sebring High School. She and her husband
played in a band for 12 years - "when we were young
and strong," Eisnaugle said. They were the house band
at the, old Holiday Inn,.(now Best Western) in Lake


Placid. Locals knew them as Eric and Linda (when they
played as a duo) or as the Eric John Show.
"I played keyboard and he played bass and sax and
was the main singer, although we are both singers and
have music degrees. In the beginning our band had .10
people, but the size varied over time. We played Top
40, and light rock. We played various hotels and trav-
eled the east coast. It was fun and there are lots of great
memories," Eisnaugle said.
After sending in a poem story entitled "Christmas
Lights for Sukey," PublishAmerica asked her to pro-
duce a book of 8,500 words. "By the time I finished, it
was. almost 10,000 words. The entire process took me
about eight to 10 months," Eisnaugle said.
Something people will be hearing more of is a new
theatrical outfit in this area, according to Eisnaugle. It
is headed by Larry and Rachel Moore who were at the
recent art festival in Sebring. They put on productions
every half hour in the children' section. "They have
asked to present my 'Belle and her Beau' as a mini skit.
I really feel honored," Eisnaugle said.
"My favorites in this book are the 'Castle of Eis'
series, especially 'Spaghetti Wars.' Everything was true
except that very last line. In fact, everything in
'Footprints in the Pies' is true. It's just written in a poet-
ic manner," Eisnaugle said. If people are interested in
purchasing the book, they can go to www.publishamer-
ica.com or call Eisnaugle at 214-7000. The 64-page
book sells for $13.

ARTS & LEISURE


SEBRING - Clowns from
the Toby the Clown Foundation
have been a busy group this
year.
Aside from performing in
three individual parades in
Avon Park, Sebring, and Lake
Placid, they also put on shows
for the local divisions of the
Elks and Shriners.
Each year the Elks and the
Shriners put on parties for their
children. The clowns attended
both events and performed
skits, magic, and sang songs
with the kids.
This was in addition to all
the clown's regular activities.
Clowns go to the Sebring and
Lake Placid Library, the
Redlands Christian Migrant
Association day care centers,
and nursing homes each
month.
Clowns are busy folks and
have a lot of fun bringing
smiles and happiness to area
children. If you are interested
in being a clown, now is the
time to join.
Contact the Clown Museum
and sign up for classes that start
Jan. 9. For details, call the
museum at 465-2920 or call
Keith Stokes at 465-4438.

'Hammock Creek' by Robert Butler


Clowning around town


Couture's Gallery


displayed at
SEBRING - Robert
Butler, the noted
Highwayman Artist famous
for bringing "Painting Florida
Southern Landscapes" into
our homes through the medi-
um of PBS television,
unveiled his latest painting, a
commissioned work entitled
"Hammock Creek" at
Couture's Gallery.
Allora and Dick Couture
hosted a reception where the
public were invited to view
some of Butler's wide collec-
tion of landscapes, seascapes
and scenes of Florida farm
life. Couture's Gallery and
Frames sell original as well as
signed Giclees and prints of
the artist's work.
Following in their father's
footsteps, three of Robert's
children Aletha, Robert Jr. and
Dorene have each become
well-known artists in their


own right. Aspiring local
artists wanting to learn the
Butler's method of painting
acrylic landscapes will have
an opportunity of doing so in
workshops by Doreen Butler


in Lake Placid in the near
future. Coordinating the class-
es will be local artist and long-
time Butler devotee, Mara
SYeates-Trumbo. For details
call 699-6571.


To The City Of Sebring Residents:

The City of Sebring is changing the procedure for the collection and'
disposal of passenger car and pickup truck tires. The City will still
pickup three (3) tires per month at no charge to residential house-
holds. However, tires will be picked up on an appointment basis.
To arrange for a pickup please call the City Office at 471-5100. Tires
will be picked up each Wednesday. For a Wednesday pickup you
must call by Friday prior to the Wednesday pickup. Households are
not to place tires curbside until the day before the scheduled pickup.
Tires placed curbside without a scheduled pickup prior to the pickup
date will be considered a Code Enforcement violation.

DIVERSIONS



Noise and roughness inherent in young boys


Question: Help! I'm the
mother of two sons, and I feel
as if I've been thrust into a
strange new world. Are boys
always so rough? Sometimes
the noise level in our house is
more than I can take! Is this
normal?
Dr. Dobson: I've got both
good and bad news for you - it
is normal, so you'd better get
used to it and learn to cope!
One of my colleagues, Dr. Tim
Irwin, once shared his observa-
tion that women who have not
grown up with brothers are
often shocked by the sheer
physicality of boys - by the
sights and sounds and smells
they generate. Some, like you,
admit they are completely
"clueless" in knowing how to
deal with them.
One obvious suggestion is to
help boys release their excess
energy by getting them
involved in activities where
fighting, laughing, running,
tumbling and yelling are
acceptable. Soccer, karate,
Little League and football are a
few possibilities. Moms also
need to keep boys' little minds
and hands busy. It's in their best
interest to do so. My father
once said about our energetic
toddler, "If you let that kid get
bored, you deserve what he's
going to do to you." Shirley's
stepfather, who has a South


Dakota accent, once
said after baby-sit-
ting our kids for a
week, "Oh, der good
kids. You just gotta
keep 'em out in da
open." Good advice!
Question: You've
often said that boys
and men are usually
not natural communi-
cators. Boy, does that
describe the "men" in
my life! What can I
do to keep everyone
talkirig to one anoth-
er?


Focus
ON THE
FAMIlY

Dr. James
Dobson


Dr. Dobson:
Every family needs at
least one highly communicative
person in the home, and it looks
like you are the one. Many boys
are inclined to bottle up what-
ever frustration they are carry-
ing inside. Unless you take the.
initiative to pull them out, some
of them may withdraw within
themselves and stay there emo-
tionally. I urge you to do what-
ever is required to get into your
son's world. Keep talking and
exploring and teaching.
Communication is the goal.
Everything depends on it.
In 1991, Saddam Hussein
and his Iraqi army invaded the'
tiny, oil-rich country of Kuwait
and subjected its people to terri-
ble brutality. Their troops were
poised to attack Saudi Arabia


battle?
You


and thereby control
half the world's oil
supply. President
George H. Bush
demanded repeatedly
that Hussein with-
draw his forces, but
he stubbornly
refused. Thus, on Jan.
17 of that year,
Operation Desert
Storm was launched.
Several hundred
thousand allied
troops attacked the
Iraqi army from land,
sea and air. What do
you think was the
first objective of the

might expect it to have


been Saddam's tanks, or his
planes, or his, frontline soldiers.
Instead, the allies destroyed the
Iraqis' communication network.
Stealth bombers smashed it
with smart bombs and other
weapons. In so doing, our
forces interfered with the abili-
ty of the Iraqi generals to talk to
each other. They had no way to
coordinate their effort oi direct
the movements of their army.
The war ended a few weeks
later.
What happened in Desert
Storm has direct relevance for
families. When the communica-
tive link between members
breaks down, they become dis-


organized and distant from each
other. If husbands and wives
stop talking to each other, or if
parents and children grow
silent, they slip into misunder-
standing and resentment. Steel-
reinforced barriers are erected,
and anger prevails. For many
families, this is the beginning of
the end.
Let me urge all mothers to
talk regularly to their sons (and,
of course, to every other mem-
ber of the family). It is a skill
that can be taught. Work hard at
keeping the lines of communi-
cation open and clear. Explore
what your children and your
spouse are thinking and feeling.
Target your boys, especially,
because they may be concealing
a cauldron of emotion. When
you sense a closed spirit devel-
oping, don't let another day go
by without bringing hidden
feelings out in the open. It's the
first principle of healthy family
life.

Santa as symbol of giving lives forever in hearts 1Id d.Ig
S130 N. Ridgewood Dr. Sebring
5831 5884Md


Dear Abby:
I am 8 years old, and I have a
question that has bothered me
for months. Is Santa Claus a
real person, and if not, why
does everyone say he is? And if
Santa Claus isn't real, where do
all the letters go?
Confused in N.Y
Dear Confused:
Santa Claus is more than a
human being. Santa Claus is the
living symbol of selfless giving,
handed down from one genera-
-- ion to the next. In 1897, a girl
Named Virginia asked the same
question in a newspaper. A very
wise newspaper editor, Frank
Church, wrote in reply: "Yes,
Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.
... The most real things in the
world are those which neither
children nor men can see.
Dear Abby:
Yesterday afternoon, as I was
opening my mail, I came across
an envelope with my name and
address printed on it, but no


return address. I
assumed it was junk'
mail that had been
made to look like a
Christmas card, but
curiosity got the bet-
ter of me, so I opened
it.
Inside was a
Christmas card. It
was signed "Santa,"
and inside were five
$100 bills!
I checked the post-
mark. It read, "Grand

I'm divorced. My ex-hus-
band hasn't been helping me to

have been hard. Obviously, the
card was sent by someone who

someone who went to great
trouble to remain anonymous.
The money was a blessing. An
equally great blessing is the fact

Dear Still:
A perceptive per-
son once said that
true generosity is
doing something nice
for someone without
taking credit for it.
However, your case is
exceptional - and


how fitting of your benefactor,
"Santa," to take a bow. I know
readers of all ages will be as
gratified as I was to read about
his act of kindness.
Dear Abby:
When you're a guest in
someone's home and use the

on the bathroom sink is the kind
that's pretty and looks like little
flowers - do you use one and
throw it away when you're fin-


with plain water?-

Dear Embarrassed:
Please don't feel embar-
rassed; yours is a very common
question. Guests should feel
free to use what is offered- by
their hosts. The hosts can throw
away the soap later if they wish.

Putting the right plant in the right place


This is the third in a series of articles
written on the new area program called
Florida Yards & Neighborhoods. The
program is being implemented through
your local county extension service in
Highlands. Okeechobee and Glades
County and is partially funded from
Clean Water Act Section 319 funding
from the U. S. EPA through the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection.
Plant selection can be the fun part of
landscaping a "Florida Friendly Yard."
If you are from the North Country, like
I am, you probably marvel at the diver-
sity of plants that grow in this area.
You may want to try everything or are
dismayed at the number and find it
hard to choose.






1 ; . ,

GROWING

SEASON

Highlands
County Master
Gardeners


Remember, the plants you select determine the
level of maintenance required and also how long
your landscape will last.
Plants already on your property, particularly
low maintenance native plants, should be
retained. Saving existing plants reduces cost and
leaves valuable wildlife habitat undisturbed.
Select from a list that includes suitable native
plants as once they are established most require
little, if any, supplemental water, fertilizer or pes-
ticides. If you won't be irrigating your yard select
drought tolerant plants that are suited to your soil.
Consider flowering and fruiting plants that bring
birds and butterflies into your yard.
Please do not plant noxious or invasive


species. Florida prohibits planting of
Brazilian Pepper, Australian Pine,
Melaleuca, Carrotwood, Chinese
Tallow and many others.
Strive to create a mosaic of trees,
shrubs, groundcovers, native grasses
and wildflowers. Large plantings of the
same species are prone to disease and
insect infestation.
Turf areas should be functional and
designed for easy maintenance.
Bahiagrass tends to be more carefree
than St. Augustine.
Groundcovers are especially useful in
shady or sloped areas where turf may not
thrive or is difficult to maintain.
Don't be fooled by the Quick-fix
appeal of fast growing plants. They


require more pruning, resulting in more clippings
and yard waste. Slower growing plants may take
longer, but they will last longer and create less
work.

Book series cites blunders and boo-boo's


Having recently browsed
through the series on amazing
human folly titled, "The Darwin
Awards: Evolution in Action;"
"The Darwin Awards II:
Unnatural Selection;" "The
Darwin Awards 3: Survival of
the Fittest," it seemed natural to
just keep shaking my head in
disbelief by taking on "Ripley's
Believe It or Not!-Planet
Eccentric!"
Reading about all the
thoughtless actions of the
human race is a never-ending
source of amusement and
amazement.
You see, in order to have
your story in the Ripley series,
you must do something no one
in their right mind would
attempt, however, to' be in the
Darwin books, your thought-
lessness has to lead to your
death!
I did find one "lucky" soul
who was featured in both
books. Perhaps the incredible
story was just too good to leave


out.
It seems that there were two
would-be bank robbers, one of
whom had a loaded gun. The
gun wielder ordered, "no one
make a move." Unfortunately,
his partner in crime moved. Yes,
he killed his own accomplice.
You'll be reading out loud
from "Weird Wonders and
Bizarre Blunders; America's
Strangest Museums;" "Oops,
the Complete Book of
Bloopers; Ripley's Believe It or
Not! - Accidents &
Disasters;" "Ripley's Believe It
or Not!-Encyclopedia of the
Bizarre," "Amazing, Strange,
Inexplicable, Weird, and All
True!;" "The Worst of
Everything; America's Top 10
Curiosities;" "Strange Talents:
People Who Can See the
Future, Heal the Sick, &
Communicate With the Dead;"
"505 Unbelievably Stupid Web
Pages;" or check out any of the
series, "Guinness Book of
Records."


Get back to nature: Visit


If you love nature then I'm
sure you've visited one of
Florida's State Parks. In fact, I
would be surprised if you are
reading this article and haven't
visited a state park. Florida's
State Park system is one of the
nation's largest: 159 state parks
spanning more than 723,000
acres and 100 miles of sandy
white beach.
Florida's park system is so
outstanding that it's even won a
prestigious award, twice. The
National Recreation and Parks
Association's Gold .Medal
Award was presented at the
2005 National Recreation and


NEWS
TH
WATER

Jennifer


Park Association
Congress and
Exposition in San
Antonio, Texas. This
remarkable accom-
plishment marks the
first time a state
agency was awarded
the Gold Metal
twice. The Florida
Park Service, man-
_ aged under the
Florida Department
of Environmental
Protection, was a
finalist in the
National Rebreation
and Parks


Association Gold Medal award
in 1997, and won the Gold
Medal in 1999. Florida compet-
-ed with state park systems from
Missouri, North Carolina and
Tennessee for the award.
Here in Highlands County
we are fortunate to have
Highlands Hammock State
Park. With the cooler weather
on its way and a host of upcom-
ing events, now is the perfect
time for a trip to the Park.
Visitors can enjoy bicycling the
scenic 3-mile Loop Drive or
hiking along the park's nine
trails. An elevated boardwalk
traverses an old-growth cypress


swamp. For equestrians, there
is an 11-mile, day-use trail.
Picnicking, camping, and
ranger-guided tours of the park
are other popular activities.
Highlands Hammock is four
miles west of Sebring from the
comer of US 27 and Hammock
Road.
Also in Highlands County is
the more primitive Lake June-
in-Winter Scrub State Park. The
park is located in Lake Placid
and encompasses 845 acres of
predominantly scrub habitat.
Some of Florida's rarest plants
and animals, including the
Florida scrub-jay, Florida scrub
lizard, Florida mouse, deer,
gopher tortoise, and
bobcat are found in

Hebrews II :6, "But without faith
it is impossible to please Him:
for le that cometh to God must
believe that He is, and that He is
S , ' a reivarhder of them that
diligently seek Him." That verse .
does not say "He is a rewarde~r':
of those that know somethinglf.
about Him." II says God reward.'
those who diligently seek Him. Diligently, meaning
continued effort to accomplish something. Also
ielcaning to purstte non--stop. If you have a situation
that the cen'emy has destined to stop you in your
tracks, do not resort to bitterness. You can find
yourself a closet, climb up into the lap of God, and
like lacob, declare. "Lord, I will not let you go until
yoou bless me". see Genesis 32:26. We can find
deliverance in the mountain of prayer. The enemy

Taurus: You'll r'sk a loss





before you compromise


Aries (March 21 - April 20) - There will be some people you
like, others people you don't and still more whom you'll never get
along with no matter how much you try. Trust your HOROSC
instincts.
Taurus (April 21 - May 21) - Brace yourself, Metro New
Taurus, you're going to lock horns with someone
powerful this week. Stubborn bull that you are,
you'd rather risk losing it all before compromising
your beliefs.
Gemini (May 22 - June 21) - You've promised too much this
time around, Gemini, and when others realize you can't deliver,
your name will be mud. Next time, don't make big promises just to
impress.
Cancer (June 22 - July 23) - You'll give as good as you get
this week Cancer, surprising all those who think you're too shy to
fight for what you believe in. Let 'em underestimate you - it's
bound to work in your favor.
Leo (July 24 - Aug. 23) - Someone you simply can't seem to
get along with will rub you the wrong way to such an extent that
you may lose all sense of reason and go for the jugular. This is
going to be an explosive week.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23) - It may seem like you're losing
ground this week, but don't worry too much. By Thursday, what
went wrong will begin to right itself - all the better for you!


Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23) - Never mind the pressure, Libra,
you must take your time and get things right this week. The more
OrS you rush, the greater the chance of making an embar-
'0PES rassing mistake.
. Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22) - A situation you've
s Service put up with in the past is quickly reaching the point
where you can no longer bother with it. Maybe you
should've ended things sooner, but at least you gave it
ago.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21) - You can be as dynamic and
assertive as you want to be this week. You'll get away with almost
anything, so feel free to move ahead with the things you've been
held back in during these past few months.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20) - You're capable of really big
things, so don't waste your time and energy on trivial things,
Capricorn. Others may be ready for a fight, but there's nothing that
says you have to give it to them.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19) - If you're going to blow your
top this week, make sure your anger is aimed at the person who
deserves to receive it. If you're not careful, you may hurt someone
who's done you no harm.
Pisces (Feb. 20 - March 20) - Let your actions speak for you,
Pisces, as words are not going to come easily to you this week. Ask
yourself what effects your deeds are likely to have on others.


NBC Universal promotes

executive Jeff Zucker


By DAVID BAUDER
AP Television Writer
NEW YORK - NBC
Universal Television
announced a restructuring
Thursday to make Jeff Zucker,
the former "Today" show pro-
ducer, chief executive behind
company chairman Bob
Wright.
The changes give Zucker
the inside track to eventually
replace Wright. 62, who has
led NBC since 1986.
Executives who once report.
ed to Wright will now report to
Zucker - including Randy
Falco, who as president of
NBC Universal has largely run
the company's business side:
NBC Sports Chairman Dick
Ebersol; and Jay Ireland. who
ran the NBC-owned television
stations.
Zucker will oversee NBC.
including its entertainment,
news and sports divisions, and
cable networks, like CNBC.
NISNBC. USA. Bravo and Sci
Fi.


Beth Comstock, who used
to run NBC's public relations
department before moving to
General Electric Co. as an
executive, returns to NBC
Universal as president of digi-
tal media and market develop-
ment.
NBC has struggled in prime
time this season, after finishing
its first-ever fourth place in the
ratings among young viewers
last season, and Wright said
the reorganization is partly
designed to expedite a recov-
ery.
Zucker was the longtime
"Today" executive producer
before becoming head of NBC
entertainment. He then was
promoted again, giving him
greater responsibility over the
network.
Falco was appointed presi-
dent and chief operating offi-
cer of the company in the
restructuring
The changes do not effect
the Uiiiversal final studio and
theme park, \Vright said.

Sun 'N Lake wants impact fees for main boulevard


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Topping Sun
'N Lake's list of goals for 2006
is getting impact fees in place to
improve, Sun 'N Lake
Boulevard.
The road works fine now, but
in a few years, with population
increasing in the district and the
county, it may need wider lanes,
improved traffic circles and
more sidewalks to accommo-
date both school-age and retiree
residents.
It was the first item on a list
of goals General Manager
Marvin Fischer proposed to the
board of supervisors at a work-
shop recently.
More than anything else, he
wants Sun 'N Lake of Sebring
Improvement District to coordi-
nate with the county on devel-
opment issues, so the area will
be ready. So far, the county's


discussion on impact fees has
centered on transportation and
roads, Fischer said.
"At this point, I see us as out
of the loop," Fischer said.
Fischer would like to coordi-
nate with the county for traffic
management on Sun 'N Lake
Boulevard, a county maintained
road. This would include plan-
ning for increased traffic on that
road and identifying funding to
deal with it, by June 30, 2006,
Fischer said.
Development
Fischer would like Sun 'N
Lake staff to develop land
development regulations to
coincide with the county's.
Drainage is one major issue that
could get corrected this way,
according to the supervisors.
Some previous developments
in the district did not deal with
drainage, and have had minor


flooding problems as a result.
District business
Fischer would like to have
the district's assessments ana-
lyzed and reviewed to make
sure they are fair and provide
the funds the district needs for
infrastructure. Developing a
plan for the town center and
resort center is high on the list,
as is updating and improving
the district's Internet site.
A secondary goal under dis-
trict business would be hiring
both a financial advisor and
bond counsel. Fischer wants a
maintenance schedule for exist-
ing water, sewer and drainage
systems. He'd also like to have
a regular newsletter for the dis-
trict.

School
In the next 10 years, the dis-


trict stands to have a significant
increase in the number of young
people. Fischer wants to coordi-
nate with The School Board of
Highlands County and National
Recreational Properties Inc. to
find a site by November 2006
for a new high school in the dis-
trict. A secondary goal involves
getting more recreational
opportunities for youth.


Secondary goals
On a list of secondary goals,
Fischer would like to work with
Progress Energy to put in power
lines, either overhead or under-
ground, for increased develop-
ment.
He wants a capital improve-
ment plan and maintenance
schedule for district-owned
roads. They would need to com-


ply with the county's new
codes, supervisors said, includ-
ing making all of them 20 feet
wide.
Another goal would have
him and district staff reviewing
the district's cooperation with
law enforcement, fire services
and emergency medical servic-
es to see if there is room for
improvement.

To honor the peacekeepers


KATARA SIMMONS/News-Sun
The Highlands County Sheriff's Office's annual 'blue light tree' was lit Monday evening by
Sheriff Susan Benton in Sebring. According to Benton, 'The tree symbolizes support and gratitude
for the men and women who serve as the peacekeepers in our communities. The blue lights also
shine in honor of the peacekeepers that have made the supreme sacrifice in the performance of
their duties.'

Supervisors

approve new

contract

By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - With a unani-
mous vote Friday. the Sun 'N
Lake of Sebring Board of
Supervisors approved a new
contract with Severn Trent
Services Inc.
One of the biggest changes
has been to hire Marvin
Fischer, former supervisor, as
general manager. That was
approved in November. His
contract will pay $87,500, but
that does not include the 401K
retirement account or health
insurance.
As part of the contract,
Severn Trent will keep staff on
hand for the district's business
hours - 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
- to assist residents, other
staff members and supervisors.
One of the major complaints
was that Severn Trent didn't
have staff on hand when need-
ed.
Having Fischer as general
manager will solve some of
that. Also, supervisors hope
this new contract will remove
some of the distinctions
between district employees and
Severe Trent staff so the town
hall will work more cohesively.
"We need to avoid any 'us-
them' syndrome," Supervisor
John Clark said.
He saw this as extremely
important to improve and
maintain morale for the staff.
One contract change will
allow Severn Trent to go ahead
and make repairs to damaged
infrastructure with in-house
staff, without having to get bids
from .outside contractors. That
way, Severn Trent can handle
emergency repairs when need-
ed.
Bids can still be gathered to
make sure Severn Trent's
billing for service is fair, but
repairs could be made faster
with Fischer's approval.
Since those emergency deci-
sions are part of Fischer's job,
Clark is glad to have a manager
who lives in the district.
Robert Severino, board pres-
ident, still wants to see an orga-
nizational chart from Fischer,
so staff will know who's in
charge when Fischer is absent.
He asked Fischer to brief the
board members on the chart
and get their individual input in
time for the Jan. 27 regular
meeting.
Supervisors also approved
Fischer's long-term goals for
the district, but Clark said there
should still be a definite time-
line for achieving them. Fischer
said he'd be happy to sit down
with Clark and fine tune the
language to set some deadlines.

Katrina death

toll now 1,321
Associated Press
BATON ROUGE, La. -
The body of another Hurricane
Katrina victim was found this
week, bringing the number of
verified deaths caused.by the
storm to 1,321.
The body search in
Louisiana, where 1,072 people
died because of Katrina, was
called off Oct. 3, but those
returning to destroyed homes
continue to find the dead.
Louisiana's Department of
Health and Hospitals reported
the latest recovered body
Friday, but did not provide any
details. It said 1,095 bodies
have been found in the state
since Katrina struck the Gulf
Coast on Aug. 29.

2006.
First of all, diners at the 19th
Hole who want a more quiet
setting will get their wish.
Kitson & Partners LLC has
agreed to add two staff mem-
bers and seat people in The
Candlelight dining room.
The service will be available
only during the heavy winter
visitor season on Friday and
Saturday nights as long as peo-
ple call the restaurant and make
a reservation. During this sea-
son it will run from January to
April 2006 and start back again
around October.


Resort Manager Ron
Wonderling said it will cost the
operation an extra $750 per
month in labor. The tables will
not have linen service, but it
will be a quieter dining experi-
ence than the more casual 19th
Hole.
Supervisor John Clark said
several people had thought this
service had already started.
Some liked it and others didn't..

Severn-Trent to inspect sewer lines for leaks


Whole system to be studied,

Hurricane damage addressed


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING - Water and
sewer problems in Sun 'N Lake
of Sebring will get some atten-
tion in the coming months.
Sand has gotten into lift sta-
tions at Units 2 and 13, which
need attention right away.
However, with much of the
water and sewer system put in
when the district was first
founded, roughly 30 years ago,
there is concern for how well it
has held up.
Supervisor John Clark had
the impression it was done
cheaply: "We're getting to the
consequences of that."
Hopefully a study of all pipes
will show how well the system
is or isn't working. On Friday,
the supervisors approved a dis-
trict-wide engineering audit,


which will include buildings
along with the water and sewer
systems.
In addition, supervisors
authorized Severn Trent Service
Inc. to repair the lines and lift
stations in Units 2 and 13.
Mike Acosta, engineer with
Severn Trent, said his crews
have already pulled dpen a cou-
ple of manholes -which were
a challenge to find - and
inspected the pipe in that area.
He expected to find old clay
pipe but found polyvinyl chlo-
ride pipe. It usually doesn't let
in sand unless it has a major
break or crack. The pipes he
found have not shattered.
Once workers unearth the
pipe, Acosta plans to set off
smoke bombs in the pipe to see
if smoke seeps out and shows
any leaks. If they find any

leaks, he said they will plug
them off.
The biggest problem, Acosta
said, will be getting access
behind houses. Some of the
pipes are in tight residential
areas. If the smoke bombs don't
show leaks, he may want to use
video cables and do a visual
inspection.
Usually, he said, when pipes
let in as much sand as has been
getting in the lift stations, it
leaves a sinkhole on the sur-
face, but there haven't been
any. Acosta suspects sand is
washing in with heavy rainfall.
Hurricane damage
An outside contractor will
come in to clear some blocked
drainage culverts and weirs on
Sun 'N Lake Boulevard west of
Cortez Boulevard. General
Manager Marvin Fischer said
hurricane damage has the
drainage system clogged. It will
flood in heavy rain if they don't
get cleaned out and repaired.


He'll get a request for pro-
posals put together and ask for
bids on the work.
Clark was worried this would
be a "budget buster." Fischer
said he'll pull money out of the
emergency contingency funds
to handle it.


sary prompted further look into
the need. Clark said that study
not only showed it was feasible
but very necessary.
Clark noted, however, that
the district has already spent
$144,000 to upgrade the opera-
tion.
"Let's be careful where we
get the funds for this," he said.
General Manager Marvin
Fischer said the new analysis
has shown him that Kitson &
Partners is going in the right
direction.
Supervisor John Negley said
it was important, now that
Kitson & Partners has made the
golf operation more efficient,
that the supervisors continue to
give them the tools they need to
make the operation work.
When asked whether the
carts had hub odometers to help
tell when the carts will need
service, Wonderling said the
carts didn't but could be gauged
by battery life and the number
of hours they have been in oper-
ation.
If needed, he said, Kitson &
Partners can add odometers to
the carts later for a relatively
low cost.

How not to decorate for Christmas


ROMONA WASHINGTON
Executive Editor
SCOTT DRESSEL
Sports Editor


Other viewpoints

Citrus canker has bad connotations for many South
Florida homeowners. Some consider them fighting
words. But the skirmishes that South Florida residents
fought over the state's citrus-canker eradication program
several years ago have been replaced by other perils that
threaten Florida's citrus industry.
Now, South Floridians should be rooting for a victory
by agriculture managers, lest the state's $9 billion citrus
industry suffer a debilitating blow.
The citrus-canker disease that began in south Miami-
Dade County and spread to Broward and Palm Beach
counties has now been pushed to Cape Coral and as far
north as Orlando. Last year's four hurricanes are blamed
for spreading the disease, but many South Florida resi-
dents who moved north added to the problem by trans-
planting- citrus to their new homes.
The results have been devastating. The disease has
spread to 24 counties and cost $500 million. More than 7
million commercial trees have been destroyed, and near-
ly 850,000 residential trees suffered the same fate.
Citrus greening, an insect-borne tree-killing disease,
has been discovered in four South Florida groves. And if
the diseases weren't enough, some growers are selling
their farms to developers to build homes.
Even so, agriculture-department administrators are
confident that with continued state and federal funding
support - and barring unforeseen setbacks -. citrus
canker can be eliminated by midyear 2007, a department
spokesman said. That's a prospect even that South
Florida residents should cheer.

An editorial excerpt from The Miami Herald.

Conservation efforts are still needed to protect under-
water life off our shores.
Congress is set to reauthorize the law regarding the
conservation and management of fish stocks within fed-
eral waters. It can improve it by incorporating a sensible
bill from two Florida lawmakers.
U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.) and U.S. Rep. Clay
Shaw (R-Fort Lauderdale) have sponsored legislation
that would further restrict bottom trawling - a practice
some environmentalists and marine biologists equate to
clear-cutting trees.
The Bottom Trough and Deep Sea, Coral Habitat Act
would impose bans on deep-sea fishing in federal waters
along the Atlantic andi-Pacific seaboards; including sec-
tions along the Southeast Florida coast.
Deep-sea fishing is a staple of the commercial fishing
industry. It's a majormeans of obtaining popular seafood
such as orange roughy and grenadiers, a popular fish that
is sometimes sold as sea bass.
Bottom trawling, though, is a practice that uses heavy,
massive metal wheels to weigh down nets to hover over
the ocean floor thousands of fathoms beneath the surface.
The results can be devastating for living coral caught in
the net's path. For example, in the waters off Alaska, the
U.S. government estimates that between 1997 and 1999
about 2.7 million pounds of corals and sponges were
removed from the ocean floor due to bottom trawling.
The destruction of undersea coral can't be replaced
easily, for it takes many years to grow and mature.
Marine biologists are supporting the bill to protect the
coral and bide time to make important discoveries about
life on the ocean floor. By preserving the habitat, these
scientists can unravel scientific mysteries, a luxury they
wouldn'tt ha\e if the seafloor environment is ground
under b..fishing operations.
Corals are li\ ing species that provide a habitat to deep
sea marine life that scientists are still trying to fathom.
Congress should help those efforts by approving federal
restrictions on bottom trawling:

An editorial excerpt from 'the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Perhaps it shouldn't surprise anyone, but the idea that
the United States is paying Iraqi journalists to plant sto-
ries in 'thi Iraqi media reflecting the U.S. government's
\ iew ofihe \ ar may be an all-new low....
The Pentagon's project is at odds with the liberty that
the Bush Administration claims it is trying to introduce
in Iraq. ..
It is shameful. Unfortunately it is not new, including in
the United States, where conservative columnist
Armstrong Williams was paid $240,000 to tout the
administration's "No Child Left Behind" act and James
Guckeitt- working under the pseudonym Jeff Gannon,
xwas a Bius favorite in White House press conferences
before he was unmasked in February.
Perhaps the most troubling aspect of the practice's
spread to Iraq is that many people on the right have no
problem with it at all.

Editor:
Just about everyone has seen
the holiday movie classic "It's a
Wonderful Life." Beloved
actor Jimmy Stewart stars as
the main character, George-
Bailey, who suffers a signifi-
cant loss during the Christmas
season and considers suicide.
The idea of suicide during the
holidays unfortunately is not a
new one, but the thought that
suicides actually increase dur-
ing the holidays is a myth.
In reality suicides drop dur-
ing the winter months, accord-
ing to the National Center for
Health Statistics. Nevertheless,
for some people, the theme of
holiday celebrations can com-
pound pre-existing depression
or grief.
Christmas is a beautiful time
and for some people it is "the
happiest time of the year." But
we need to understand many
people are not happy during the
yuletide season - they are
depressed - and that depres-
sion can be compounded by the
stresses of the holidays. Let me
offer a few suggestions for
those who may be suffering
from depression at this time of
year:
1. Don't have unrealistic
expectations. * Set realistic
goals. Pace yourself. Organize
your time. Don't put all the
focus on just one day, remem-
ber this is a season - activities
can be spread out to lessen
stress and increase enjoyment.
Be realistic and remember that
no person or family is perfect.
Every Christmas is not going to
be a Norman Rockwell picture.
2. Allow yourself to feel. It's
,a fairy tale to think you must
always be cheerful during the
holidays. Experiencing a wide-
variety of emotions during the
holiday season is completely
natural. It's all right to allow
yourself to feel a variety of
emotions. Just don't linger on
negative feelings.
3. Do something for others.
Get your attention off yourself
by helping others in need.
4. Enjoy activities that are
free. Christmas doesn't have to
be about giving Madison
Avenue gifts. Think of simpli-
fying your gift giving, your
holiday entertainment and your
life.
5. Limit or avoid alcohol
consumption. Don't use alco-
hol to relieve stress. Remember
that alcohol amplifies depres-
sion and clouds a person's
thinking.
6. Spend time with support-
ive people. The holiday season
is a good time to reach out and
make new friends or contact an
old one. An easy outlet for
meeting people this time of
year is through local churches
where the holiday season is a
time of heightened activities
open to visitors.
7. Don't live in the past. No
Christmas is perfect, not even
the ones you remember from
the "good ol' days." Life brings
changes. Each season of life is

a.unique approach to Christmas
decorating. At least, unique if
you aren't someone like
Stephen King.

picture of this display, so I have
had to rely on the descriptions
I've read. What I've read is
pretty odd.

decorated with decapitated

Claus is partially behind tihe
tree, holding a doll's head that

eye sockets.

ing choices, that's for sure.

its own way.
8. Count your blessings. If
you do think of the "good ol'
days" put them in perspective
and be thankful for the good
memories. Rather than dwell
on everything that's gone
wrong in life, think of the many
ways you've been blessed.
Lastly, if holiday depression'
or suicidal thoughts persist for
you or someone you love, then
seek professional help. It could
be that a chemical imbalance is
at the root of the depression
and medication is needed. Or it
could be Seasonal Affective
Disorder (SAD), a physical
condition in which the lack. of
sunlight negatively affects a
person's mood. Whatever,
don't suffer in silence. Seek
help.

more than criminals.
This brings to mind the pres-
ent president of these United
States, a president who was not

In a telephone interview,
Krupnik said that his family
was making a statement on
what they saw as the commer-
cialization and secularization of
Christmas. He denied that they
had meant to offend anyone.
While some people are
undoubtedly offended (let's
face it, it doesn't take much to
offend people and this is pretty
extreme) a lot of people appear
to be bemused. According to
the article I read on the Internet,
one person who saw the display
wondered if something bad had
happened to one of the house's
occupants one Christmas.
Others wondered how kids
would react to the display.
I can answer that last one.
Kids don't freak out about stuff
like this anymore. Maybe a real
young child would be troubled,
but older ones have seen worse.
This is a sad commentary on
how jaded our youth are
becoming, but that's another
column.
I think the display is proba-
bly going to stay up through the
holidays. Even if someone was
going to complain about it, it's

Amendment. Plus, I am not
without sympathy with the sen-
timent Krupnik expressed about
how Christmas has been secu-
larized and commercialized,
especially after a trip to Wal-
Mart.
Even with my sympathy, I
think that perhaps this display
went over the top. I'm not sup-
portive of the commercializa-
tion of Christmas, but putting
up a gruesome display as the
New York family apparently
did not send a clear message
against it. If you have to explain
the statement your display is
presenting, I'm not sure how
effective it is.
Instead, I will let my lack of
outdoor decoration stand as a
statement against the commer-
cialization of Christmas. Then I
will think about getting the
indoor decorations down from
the shelf.

a Merry Christmas.
I have climbed on the band
wagon of all those Christians
who have finally voiced
enough is enough and we want
Christ back in Christmas. Even
the bank I have had for nearly
20 years runs a banner on their
Web page with Happy Holidays
to all, what holidays? For all
other believers, non-believers,
far eastern religions and any
religion I did not notice a.ban-
ner for their "holidays."
This is the season of
Christmas and the reason for
this season is Christ. If you
don't want to admit, then don't,
but do not offend me by calling
my Christmas "happy holi-
days" and for all your other
clientele, whom you do not
wish to offend, run a banner for
them whenever you feel it is
appropriate, but do not walk on
eggshells during the Christmas
season. If separate religions are
having celebrations at the same
time, then acknowledge both,
but why take Christ out of
Christmas? Perhaps He has
taken you out of Christmas.
And for all the stores this
season who fail to realize the
reason for the season, I have
not purchased from you. Thank
you for the money I have
saved. The gifts I have to give
this year have come from my
heart, which is what Christmas
is about anyway: loving, car-
ing, sharing, joy, being togeth-
er, doing for others. We all
know it is not about who gets
what and how much did it cost.
This is the celebration of the
birth of Christ.

Michael Sitto said
it best. Sitto, a La
Mesa, Calif. expatri-
ate Iraqi who works
for the U.S. Navy
told reporters as he
prepared to cast his
absentee vote in the
Iraqi elections: "It is
a great day for the
Iraqi people. This is
the start of a new
democratic system, a
democratic country in
the Middle East," he
said. "At the same


time, there has been a great sac-
rifice by the American people."
And, he added, "We don't
want to lose sight of that."
Too bad the Democrats and
their Marxist allies here in the
U.S. can't see the miracle tak-
ing place in Iraq where for the
third time, in spite of real and
present dangers to life and limb,
huge numbers of Iraqis voted in
a free election.
Like Sitto, Iraqis are rejoic-
ing. and all Americans should
be shouting Hallelujah along
with them, because the miracle
that is happening there is taking
place because we made it hap-
pen.
For the very first time in the
Middle East a Muslim nation is
creating a democratic republic
- the people of an Arab nation
are deciding for themselves the
kind of government they want
and which of their fellow Iraqis
they want to run that govern-
ment. For the first time, the
people of a Muslim nation are
acting like free citizens instead
of as subjects of. an autocratic
regime.
This is a trailblazing devel-
opment and it is born and bred
out of our own history. The very
idea that a sovereign people


could be self-govern-
ing was unheard of,

- that substitutes the
rule of law for the
rule of a dictator, and


voting for candidates to serve in
a national legislature, liberal
Democrats sneer at the astound-
ing progress democracy has
made in Iraq. They predict that
all sorts of terrible problems
will arise and doom Iraq,s
hopes for a free and stable gov-
ernment.
Of course there will be prob-
lems. Putting together a con-
glomeration of groups with
widely divergent ideas and
modes of living is a tough row
to hoe, and our own history pro-
vides many examples of the
obstacles involved in the
process. It took ten years for
America just to reach the point
where it was possible to craft a
constitution.
In the wake of the American
Revolution, the best the
founders could do was to oper-
ate under the weak and ineffi-
cient Articles of Confederation.
Finally, ten years later, they met
to create a binding Constitution.
It took two years for Congress
to adopt the document and
another two years of con-
tentious debate before the
required majority of states
approved the Constitution of
the United States.
And that was just the begin-


. ning. It took a long time for
some of the-states-to accept the
idea that they were part of a
national union and not individ-
ual nations. Some of the dis-
putes actually involved armed
resistance, such as the so-called
Whiskey Rebellion. Later, the
nation split apart over the issue
of slavery and a terrible civil
- war broke out.
In the end, however, we have
survived for well over two cen-
turies and today the United
States is the wealthiest and
most powerful nation on the
face of the earth. And because
we set an example for all the
world to follow more than 200
years ago,'the people of Iraq
have today taken a giant step to
follow in our footsteps.
Instead of walking around
with the usual gloom and doom
written all over their faces, lib-
erals should be leaping with joy
over the results of Dec. 15,
2005. It is a time for rejoicing,
even if it means that Howard
Dean, John Kerry, Nancy
Pelosi, John, Murtha and all the
rest of the "hate-Bush brigade"
will have to admit that
President Bush knew what he
was doing all along.
One Iraqi voter quoted in a
story on the Drudge Report had
a few words for the cut-and-run
crowd: "Anybody who doesn't
appreciate what America has
done and President Bush [has
done] let-thef-go-to hell."
That works for me.

the late President Ronald
Reagan, is heard on more than

Mountaintop removal destroys towns, homes and lives


ENVIRONMENTAL
NOTES
Lloyd Jones


Moun-
taintop
removal
strip min-
ing is the
practice of
blasting
off the
tops of
m oun -
tains so
huge
machines
can mine
thin
seams of
coal. The


coal companies dump the
mountaintops into nearby val-
leys and streams to create "val-
ley fills," converting beautiful
mountain landscapes covered in
hardwood forests into fields of
sparse grass. Many local people
who live near this destruction
call it "mountain massacre"
mining.
This desecration is taking
place in West Virginia,
Kentucky, Virginia and
Tennessee. Coal companies
have made communities near
the mines unlivable from con-
stant blasting, dust clouds cov-
ering homes, and overloaded
coal trucks rumbling through
town. Instead of trying to be
good neighbors, companies pre-
fer to force people living near
the mines to sell their homes
and leave. Whole communities
such as Blair in West Virginia
have been wiped out.
Aerial inspections show that
mountaintop removal mines
have already leveled between
15 and 25 percent of southern
West Virginia's mountains.
Today, the mines in West
Virginia alone have buried
more than a 1,000 miles of
streams and have cut down
300,000 acres of hardwood
forests.
Twenty years ago, no one
dreamed a. coal mine would
destroy so much land and sacri-
fice entire communities to get at
a seam of coal. One mountain-
top removal mine can strip up-
to 10 square miles and dump
millions of tons of waste into as
many as 12 valley fills that can
be !,000 feet wide and one mile
long. They may have permits to
-- mine but they do not haveper-
mits to destroy the mountains,
the hardwood forests that took
hundreds of years to grow or
the homes of the people who
have lived there all of their
lives.
The federal coal law requires
all mine operators to prevent
blasting damage to homes,
water supplies and protect pub-'
lic safety. The coal companies
routinely cause damage but
state and federal regulators
rarely enforce the blasting stan-
dards for any type of coal min-
ing.
Former West Virginia legisla-
tor Joan Linville now works to
stop mountaintop mining. She
said that most residents know
better than to look for a link
between public policy and pub-
lic.good, at least when it comes
to "King Coal." When the union
mines closed down, her hus-
band was one of the men about
to retire.
Now a widow, she said, "he
got gypped out of a pension and
had no health insurance." The
house they shared shakes from
dynamite blasts and floods
when heavy rains run off the
unnatural topography. Linville
trusts God for a lot of things,
but when a storm lasts more
than an hour,' she leaves the
area.
A 36-year-old mother of two,
Maria Gunnoe left her job as a
waitress to become a full-time
organizer for the Ohio Valley
Environmental Coalition. She
remembers the 45 minutes of
hard rain on June 16, 2003,
when a brown wall of rocks,
mud, trees and water rushed
down the hill behind her house,
where a mountaintop mining
project had drastically changed
the topography. Her young
daughter was so frightened that
Gunnoe had to cover her eyes.
"I dropped to my knees for a
moment, praying with every-
thing I had," she said. "Then I
put a rain slicker over her head
and threw her over my shoul-
der."
They barely escaped with
their lives. "Something you
have at the end of every valley
fill is a flooded valley," she
said.
SAnother young lady, Julia
Bonds, the community outreach
coordinator for a tiny grassroots
organization, Coal River Watch,
said, "We are living with


domestic terrorism
from these coal
barons and our
lapdog politicians
are working hand
in hand with the
corporations that
put them in place
to destroy our chil-
dren's world. They
think we're a
bunch of ignorant
hillbillies."
Bond's ances-
tors settled in
Marfork Hollow
(or "holler," as the
locals say) after
the Revolutionary
War. Here, she and
her six siblings Anotherstrl
grew up poor, their
father died of
black lung three months after
retiring from underground min-
ing. She looks back on her
childhood fondly and raised her
daughter here. Then, in 1993,
the A.T: Massey Coal Company
moved in and began blasting.
After a while, coal dust per-
meated Bond's home, and her
young grandson, Andrew,
developed asthma. She began
noticing black water spills in
the stream her family had
enjoyed for six generations. She
knew something was terribly
wrong one day when she saw
dead fish all around Andrew's
feet as he stood in the stream.
When she investigated, she
learned that Massey was build-
ing a large slurry dam at the
head of her hollow. There are
136 such dams in the state hold-
ing bi Ilhons of gallons of waste-
water, rock, and mining's toxic
byproducts including mercury,
lead, arsenic and chromium.


Courtesy of OVEC
eam buried by bulldozed overburden in the Appalachians.


With accidental discharges a
real danger, the people living
below these dams sleep uneasi-
ly. One 300 million-gallon spill
by a Massey subsidiary in
Kentucky created a state of
emergency for 10 counties.
Bonds held out for years, but
when her 8-year-old grandson
started concocting evacuation
plans, she knew it was time to
go. From her new home on a
grassy hill, 10 miles away from
Marfork, she says that she and
Andrew miss their old fishing
spots, "but to save my family's
life, we needed to move out of
that hollow, as much as it killed
me."
People living in the area now
suffer because the mining com-
panies, many years ago, bought
the mineral rights from their
grandparents .and great-grand-
parents for a pittance.
The coal companies are flat-
tening the' Appalachian
Mountains. What they and the


politicians are doing to those
beautiful green mountains is
truly a crime against nature.

dent and a contributing colum-
nist of the News-Sun.

Third gym a charm as



Avon Park routs Miners


BY JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
AVON PARK - The good
news is Fort Meade got a
chance to view the wide variety
of gymnasiums in Avon Park.
After moving to the Avon
Park Middle School gym due to
re-flooring at the high school,
the game was moved to its third
site - the Avon Park
Recreational Center
Saturday afternoon because of
leaking from the roof shortly
after tip-off.
But when it came time to
actually play the game, the bad
news came as Avon Park (8-2)
continued to roll as Highlands
County's hottest commodity,
slamming the Miners 70-15.
"I'm pleased with what were
doing," Avon Park head coach
Eric Zwayer said. "It was really


a good day in pre-game and I
thought we did a good job
rebounding offensively getting
put-backs.
"Every time we step on the
floor, no matter if we're playing
a Fort Meade or a Booker, we
Avon Parktry to play our
game plan."
7 And Fort
SMeade's fans
Fort Meade were just telling it
51like it was.
15 "Let's just get
to 10," onie
woman bellowed. "We've got
to get at least 10 points today."
If that was the Miners' one
true goal, then it was a good
day when they finally broke
into double-digits with 6:24
remaining in the third quarter.
Regarding the actual out-
come of the game, however, it


was a better day for the Avon
Park Red Devils. Every player
on the :roster scored, led by
Patrick Menzies' 19 points.
Menies, who grabbed all six
of his team's rebounds in the
first quarter on his way to 14
overall, highlighted the night
with three dunks, the first on an
alley-oop from Rafael Johnson,
who bounced it of the back-
boardinto Menzies' hands, and
the others coming later when
their only purpose served as
justification for the price of
admission.
"I'm glad that they get to do
that idJnk,',. because they've
worked so hard 'to get the
chance to show off a little bit,
but we're not trying to show
anybody up or run up to score.

2005 South-Central Florida All-Star Football Classic


Ricky Sylvester (top photo) of North Port drags a pair of
Central defenders across the goal line for a South touch-
down in the second quarter of the Seventh Annual South-
Central Florida All-Star Football Classic at Firemen's Field
on Saturday. Rafael Johnson (right photo) of Avon Park
can't quite come down with a pass from Sebring's Chris
Welborne as Nathaniel Kelly of Moore Haven defends in the
first quarter. The game, which featured players from Avon
Park, Bartow, Frostproof, Fort Meade, Haines City, Hardee,
Okeechobee, M ulberry and Sebring high schools on the
Central and players from Charlotte, DeSoto, LaBelle,
Lemon Bay, Moore Haven, North Port and Port Charlotte
high schools on the South, was not complete at press time.


Wild hogs offer exciting hunting action


Historians tell us that the early set-
tlers who followed explorers
Hernando DeSoto and Ponce de Leon
brought domestic pigs to Florida. The
wild hogs that now roam the woods,
farms and ranches of south Florida
are descendants of those first few
pigs. Those settlers saw no need to
confine their livestock with fences,
allowing them to run freely until
needed for food.
Many were never caught up and
wandered off to start our present day
wild hog herds. Since they are very
prolific, their numbers multiplied rap-
idly and still do today.: Most ranchers
and farmers are glad to get rid of the
hogs and will allow careful, responsi-
ble hunters to take them. Hunters
should get permission of the,


landowners
before entering
private lands.
On- private
lands, wild hogs
Share considered
S domestic live-
stock and the
property of the
landowner. If you
OUTDOORS obtain the
landowner's per-
Lloyd Jones mission, there is
no closed season,
no bag limits and
no size limits while hunting on that
landowner's property.
On somie environmental areas and
Wildlife Management Areas , there
are size and bag limits. These areas


have bag limits of one per.day and a
possession limit of two per season.
Hogs taken must be at least 15-inches
high at the shoulder.
On some WMAs where the wild
hogs are destructive and do consider-
able damage, there are no size or bag
limits. This is welcome news for any
hunter wishing to fill his freezer with
great-tasting pork '. ihoijni shelling out
hard-earned dollars at the grocery
store.
All hunters, regardless what kind
of game they pursue, would like to
hang a trophy on their wall. But they
should kIow'that a large older trophy
size boar will not be as tender and
tasty on the table as a younger, small-

LAKE PLACID - Oracio Molina
needed a friend.
For most of the evening, the Lake
Placid goalkeeper stood alone, arms fold-
ed, just waiting for some kind of action.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the
field at Roger Scarborough Memorial
Stadium, the Dragons were
pounding Avon Park's ' Lake.Placid
defense, keeping the ball on
their side of the field virtual-
ly all night. The Green Avon Park
Dragons rifled off 16 shots f
throughout the night along
with a handful of others that
didn't count technically as shots but pro-
vided scares all the same.
"We did a really good job of that (shoot-
ing)," said Lake Placid head coach Josh
Virkler. "In fact, we didn't get off as many
shots as I thought."
Avon Park goalkeeper David Pearlman
was able to fend off most of those shots
but couldn't hold off the green and white

Girls not rusty despite

lack of practice time
By JOHN RITTER
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - A perfect way to
finish before Christmas break.
Despite not practicing all week long,
Lake Placid put up three goals in the first
16 minutes of the front end of Friday
night's doubleheader and Erica Resendiz
and Ashley Hurm scored two goals in a 7-
0 rout of Avon Park at Roger Scarborough
Stadium.
"They didn't practice at LakePlacid
all this week, so they came
out and they had fun," Lake
Placid head coach Elizabeth Avon Park
Sottile said. "We are a good
team and we know how to
play (without practice) and
there's a lot of experience on this team."
Resendiz picked up her two scores for
the third night in a row, including a 40-
yard punt that curved its way over the
bystanders and into the net.
"Shie', a fabulous player," said Sottile.
'Sli', been playing forever. She plays all
:hc iiile and her dad is Carlos, the coach,
and she just knows how to play ball."

THIRD
Continued from IE
We need to stay focused on our
goals and I think we did a good
job of that today," said Zwayer.
Avon Park also had a solid
game defensively, picking up
25 steals and holding Fort
Meade to only two scores in the
first quarter, both coming early
to make it 7-4.
That's around the time things
started to get out of hand when
the Miners turned over eight
straight possessions without a
shot allowing the Devils to go
on a 32-0 run which poured
into the second quarter.
Menzies started the rally
with a-layup to make it 9-4 and
his first dunk from Johnson put
the Devils ahead 11-4. Bo
Comadore added six points of
his own, including a 3-pointer,
and Gerrard Coleman added
five in the frame, giving Avon
Park a hefty 27-4 advantage at
the whistle.
Devaris Strange, who started
slow in that first frame, started
to come on in the second to
continue the rout, scoring nine
points in the second quarter,
most of them coming on fast-
break finger-rolls, along with
two steals.
In the meantime, Avon
Park's defense, specifically
Menzies' four blocks and Mike
Diaz's five steals, controlled
the other side of the court when
Fort Meade fans were pleading
with their team to get shots off.
And the second half started the
same way the first half ended
when Tramonte Cooper picked
up a steal at half court and
rolled in his first of eight points
in the frame.



HOGS
Continued from 1E
er hog.
The hams from these wild
cousins of farm-raised hogs
can be just as good as those
we buy at the market. If it is
excitement the hunter wants,
he can sure get it as it is not �
uncommon for these hogs to
reach 200 pounds or more. Be
wary of the larger animals as,
they can be very dangerous.
Boars grow tusks that are
sometimes more than five
inches long and are razor
sharp. They are not hesitant to
use them in defense when they
feel, threatened. Dogs of a
hound and bulldog cross are
often used to trail and catch
wild hogs.
My nephew, Mike, had a
beautiful pup a few years ago
that he was training for hog
hunting. He was such a beauti-
fully marked tan-and-white
dog, I thought he should have
'been a house pet. Mike caught
a lot of hogs with him and oth-
ers he owned. He hunted along
the Kissimmee River from a
large aluminum boat.
When a likely spot was
found, Mike turned the dogs
loose and it was only a short
wait before the yelping dogs
let Mike know a hog had been
caught. While the dogs held
the hog, Mike tied the hog's
feet and taped its mouth shut
so as not to get slashed, by the
1 tusks.
Mike kept the hogs penned
up and fed them a diet to fat-
ten them and make them more
palatable before butchering. It
sure made for some good
hams, pork chops and tender-
loins.
There is a lot of good hunt-
ing out there for anyone hardy
enough to go after wild hogs
and the rewards are great.
Most farmers and ranchers are
more than happy to get rid of
their wild hog problems. These
animals do get wary if hunted
very much and will go to for-
aging after dark ,but there are
plenty of areas where they can
be hunted in daylight.
This is a game animal well
a worthh your time and effort if
you enjoy hunting and
Florida's great outdoors.

Dickey named backup QB for Gators


Associated Press
GAINESVILLE - Gavin
Dickey will serve as Florida's
backup quarterback in the
Outback Bowl against No. 25
Iowa.
Freshman Josh Portis had
been the backup all season, but
he decided to transfer last week
because of a lack of playing
time and left the 16th-ranked
Gators with little depth behind
starter Chris Leak.
Dickey played quarterback
during his first, two seasons at
Florida before moving to
receiver this fall. He had one
reception for 12 yards.

Ricky's roller-coaster

Williams says comeback season has been 'fun'


By STEVEN WINE
Associated Press
MIAMI
T r itled "The Comeback
Season," the latest
chapter in Ricky
Williams' life is wind-
ing down, with three regular-
season games to go.
Unpredictable as ever, he has
made a successful return to the
NFL, reinventing himself as a
part-time player while remain-
ing a full-time enigma.
Couple the comeback with
Williams' abrupt retirement
before the 2004 season, and he
acknowledges his story is more
farfetched than any script he
might concoct.
"If I had written it in the
past, it wouldn't have lived up
to everything that has hap-
pened," Williams says. "I've
been in a fortunate place where
my life takes a life of its own.
It's fun to be an observer and
watch what happens. It has
been a roller coaster. I can't
wait to see what's next."
What's next are the New.
York Jets, who face Williams,
and the Miami Dolphins today.
For the first time since 1996,
both teams take a losing record
into their second meeting of
the year. New York is 3-10 and
limping to the end of an injury-
plagued season, while Miami
is 6-7 and trying to sustain
faint playoff hopes with a late-
season surge.
The Dolphins ride a three-
game winning streak, raising
the possibility that first-year
coach Nick Saban has already
achieved a turnaround.
Williams' role has been as a
backup to rookie running back
Ronnie Brown.
"You're not hearing any-
thing about Ricky Williams
right now, and that says a lot,"
Jets coach Herman Edwards
says. "Sometimes the best
thing is when you're not heard.
That means you're doing a lot
of good things.
"He doesn't get enough
credit for what he has done
coming back. He was a big-
time star, and he came back
and accepted the role they have
him in."
The Dolphins also praise
Williams' attitude, work ethic
and leadership. The harshest
criticism since his return was
by teasing teammates who said
his scruffy beard makes him
look homeless.
Williams has bonded with


'Everything I've

been through

says who I am,

and I'm very

happy with who

I am right now.'

RICKY WILLIAMS

his new coach,the way he did
.in New Orleans with Mike
Ditka, but not with his other
NFL coaches, Dave Wannstedt
or Jim Haslett.
"Ricky is doing exactly what
we are asking him to do,"
Saban says. "The guy has been
a very positive example for a
lot of our guys in terms of how
he goes about his business and
how he works and plays."
With the media, Williams
has become much more
relaxed - even chatty..
"I'm having fun," he says.
"But I'm to the-point where I
can have fun doing anything. I
sit down and think about life,
and it's just really funi to be
alive. I've tried to get rid of all
the expectations about what's
going to come next, and that
makes it easy to be happy."
His image as an aloof, lazy,
selfish pothead struggles to
catch up, but he claims misper-
ceptions no longer bother him.
"I'm sure my weirdness
doesn't help," he says with a
chuckle.
With Williams second on the
depth chart for a rebuilding
team, scrutiny of him has eased
a bit since his head-scratching
retirement and return. After
serving a four-game drug sus-
pension to start the year,
Williams needed a couple of
games to shake the rust, but he
has 'since averaged 4.3 yards
per carry, totaling 393 yards

The light workload makes it'
difficult to compare the current
Williams to the workhorse who
won the 2002 NFL rushing
championship. Also hard to
gauge is his market value
should Saban decide two tal-
ented running backs are one
too many when much of his
roster needs an upgrade.
Because Williams sat out
last season, his contract has a

*a bargain. But he would face a
one-year suspension for anoth-
er violation of the league drug
policy, which makes him a
risk.
"As far as I know, coach
Saban likes me," Williams
says. "Unless someone makes
an incredible deal for me, I
don't see myself being any-
where else next year."
Williams says that would be
fine with him. While he's par-
tial to California's laid-back
lifestyle, the San Diego native
figures the chances of being
traded to the Chargers,
Oakland Raiders or San
Francisco 49ers are slim.
Regardless, he says he does-
n't worry about the future. And
he harbors no regrets about the
past.
"I wouldn't change anything
in my whole entire life," he

you're really changing every-

The only downfall was that

The Lady Dragons (6-4)

Pearlman's play still man-

of the night and a chance to
rally for the Devils didn't go
down the.tubes until late in the
second;half. But a few costly
penalties put the Dragons in a
good position to score.
"I have to give them great
credit, they were a much more
difficult team this time than the
first time," said Virkler. "Not
only did they control the ball a
'lot better, but they were a lot
more aggressive."
Avon Park only trailed 1-0
with eight minutes remaining

terized as "trying to get your

Meyer also said he expected
Ingram to play in the Jan. 2
bowl game.
"Yeah, there's a good
chance," he said.
"We'll try to get him ready as
best we can. He just wants to
play."


That score then doubled on a
goal from Ashley Hurm and a
score from the corer by Maria
Garza.
Lake Placid continued to roll
in the second half, getting off
four shots, three of them hitting
paydirt.
Garza picked up her first
assist of the night when her shot
from the right side of the field
crossed to Hurm who poked in
her second score to make it 5-0.

Megan Fowlkes and Resendiz
then added a goal apiece to cap

was awarded a penalty kick
after being run into by Sergio
Duran. His ensuing shot pro-'

Ricardo Gil headed the ball into

Just over a minute later, Lake
Placid pulled even further
ahead when junior Nathan
Thompson sent his third shot of
the night into the right side of

Lake Placid doesn't see the
field again until Jan. 6 against
LaBelle.
"I think it's a much needed

past weekend we played four
games in four days and even
with two rest days this week,

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE 2005
Part of a series on what's hot this gift-giving season




Value-priced games


By SHAUN CONLIN
Cox News Service
T hey might be shy on technical polish and certainly lack
the huge marketing budgets of the game-publishing gi-
ants, but "value-priced" games can often offer rock-solid
fun nonetheless - and at budget-conscious prices!
"Capcom Classics Collection"
Capcom; PlayStation 2, Xbox; $19.99
ESRB Rating: Teen (13+) (violence)
A compilation of 22 good-to-great arcade games from yester-
year, "Capcom Classics Collection" not only offers worthy
leisure-time distraction, it serves as a reminder of just how busy
Capcom has been over the years, churning out one benchmark
game after another. "Ghosts 'n' Goblins"? Still awesome. "1942"?
Still freakishly.addictive. "Final Fight"? Still so clunky it's goofy
You used to pay a quarter for 15 minutes with these games. Now
it's about a buck apiece and you play them forever.


"Splat Magazine's Renegade
Paintball"
GS Software; Windows PC, Xbox;
$19.99-$29.99
ESRB Rating: Teen (mild Niolence,
suggestive themes)


SCheck this out: A shooting game
where nobody dies! Who knew?
"Renegade Paintball" may look a lit-
tle clunky by today'sstandards, but
it's no worse than its budget-pricing
suggests. It plays as well as other
first-person shooters of its ilk, ex-
cept less violently; more of a team-
based sport simulation of actual paintball tournaments, less a
rampaging gun game, right down to the fact that you don't so
much shoot paintballs as lob them on an arcing trajectory so the
wholething has a certa in measured pacing to it all, which is nice
in an "Unreal"-respite sort of wiy'


"Mall Tycoon 3"
GS Software; Windows PC; $19.99
ESRB Rating: Everyone (6+) (comic mischief)


Seems everyone loves a good micro-management simulation, considering
the glut of "Tycoon"-this and "Sims"-that games on the market. Vying for
your holiday-shopping dollar-with fire-sale pricing is "Mall Tycoon3," a
clever and engaging mall-managing sim that may not look too pretty but
we're not shopping at Saks now, are we?


"Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 3:
Night of the Quinkan"
Activision Value; GameCube,
PlayStation 2, Xbox; $29.99
ESRB Rating: Everyone (10+) (car-
toon violence)
Though a fairly formulaic game,
"Ty 3" stands out in a crowd, first,
by its kid-friendly (10+) flavoring,
and second, by otherwise not pre-
tending to be anything more than
its value pricing suggests. What's
more, the game and its character do
have genuine personality while the
sheer volume of things to do (running, shooting,
fighting, driving, flying, berry picking and puzzle
solving), though derivative, would seem to show
that "Ty 3" is not a knock-off of one particularly
benchmark platform-hopping adventure, but all of
them. It's the very definition of "bang for your
buck."

"Cabela's Outdoor Adventures"
Activision Value; GameCube, PlayStation 2, Xbox;
$29.99
ESRB Rating: Teen (13+) (blood, violence)
Though you'd think a camping-with-guns game
would just be "Doom" on quaaludes, "Cabela's
Outdoor Adventures" is actually much more. The
whole ball of woodsy wax, in fact. You're not just
squatting in the woods, patiently waiting for big
game to stroll by so you can stalk them for the next
20 minutes, or just sitting in a boat wishing you
had a virtual beverage on hand to pass the time be-
cause the fish aren't biting, though there is that.
The game also does a decent job of simulating
the whole hunter/gatherer experience, or the cool,
modern bit with guns and ammo; anyway, from
rifle shopping to riding your ATV through rugged
terrain, from picking off rodents to rescuing hap-
less outdoorsmen.
Lots to do, little to spend. Good deal. Bring your
own beverages.
------------------------------- I -------
"Space Hack""
Meridian 4; Windows PC; $19.99
ESRB Rating: Teen (13+) (blood and gore, fantasy.
violence, language)
Think "Diablo" in space and you've got "Space
Hack," an effective, sci-fi dungeon-crawling hack-
'n'-slash game that neatly proves if you're going
to rip off someone else's game, you might as well
rip off the best and then cost less. It does.


"America's Atmy: Special Forces"
1.S.. rmy,; 11 ndows PC; Free
A military shooter for free4 Yes. Though
there are full.priced versions from Ubisoft
for PS2 and Xbox, 'America's Army:
Special Forces" is a free PC download at
www.americasarmycom, or you can order
a DVD-ROM stocking stuffer for about $5
(shipping and handling). Regardless, "AA"
should not be confused with other cheap-


ies or freebies.
This is as solid a soldiering simulator
as you're going to find, running the gamut
from realistic boot-camp training, plausi-
ble real-world war scenarios and a few far-
fetched ones with authentic weaponry and
realistic rules of engagement. Thing is, it's
an official recruiting tool for the U.S.
Army and, like any good bait worth its
salt, it's both very impressive and tantaliz-
ingly inexpensive.


"Frogger: Ancient Shadow"
Konamni; GameCube, PlayStation 2; $29.99
ESRB Rating: Everyone (6+)
An old-school franchise with another new-generation
makeover, "Frogger: Ancient Shadow" is pretty much what
you'd expect: traffic dodging with amphibians buffed up, sup-
plemented with platform-hopping, puzzle-solving and berry-
picking elements, as well as a cool, multiplayer component
that lets up to four players go at it cooperatively or competi-
tively It's reliable fun, no matter how you run it over

HOW WEIRD
IS THAT?!
SEAN MCCARTHY


pend any time surfing
the Web and you are
bound to find stories that
are just too bizarre to be true.
Here's a sampling, edited for
length. And remember, just
because it's online doesn't
mean it's true!
From NBCLosAngeles.com:
Man discovers biological
father is Charles Manson
When Los Angeles disc
jockey Matthew Roberts
began searching for his
biological parents 12 years
ago, there's no way he could
have imagined the truth he'd
eventually discover. His father
is serial killer Charles Man-
son. "I didn't want to believe
it. I was frightened and angry
It's like finding out that Adolf
Hitler is your father. I'm a
peaceful person trapped in
the face of a monster,"
Roberts told The Sun.
Roberts, 41, says that
through letters with Manson,
he has confirmed the serial
killer is indeed his father.
Manson remains in jail for the
1969 murders of actress
Sharon Tate and six others.
From sfgate.com: Sparkling
reindeer-dung jewelry sells at
zoo
Sparkly reindeer-dung
necklaces are going on sale at
an Illinois zoo that hopes to
attract the same holiday
shoppers who swept up its
dung Christmas ornaments
last year. The limited-edition
Magical Reindeer Gem

Bloomington. The $15
pendant necklaces contain
dried, sterilized reindeer
droppings sprayed with

They'll be available at the

Two dead in apparent murder-suicide at nursing home


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
VERO BEACH Vero
Beach Police officers
responded to a shooting
incident that left an elderly
couple dead last Monday
morning.
Law enforcement said


what appeared to be a nor-
mal family-patient visit,
proved to be fatal.
Mary P Lett, 84, was living
at Royal Palm Convalescent
Center in Vero Beach for
several months and her
husband, Frederick R. Lett,
91, 4701 Bethel Creek Drive,
Vero Beach, would visit her


often, authorities said.
Police said a center
employee heard two gun-
shots go off in relative suc-
cession and upon looking
out the window, the
employee saw the husband
and wife on the ,ground in
the center's courtyard.
"Apparently, he shot his


wife and turned around and
shot himself," said Officer
John Morrison, spokesman
for the department.
"It'g tragic," he said.
Police said there was no
history of domestic vio-
lence or any threatening
behavior on the part of Mr.
Lett.


"He came and would visit
her, people said," Officer
Morrison said.
It is uncertain whether
Mr. Lett owned the gun for a
while or recently purchased
it.
Detectives are still inves-
tigating the case, Officer
Morrison said.


Headless panther found; reward offered


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
officials are looking for
leads in a case involving
the decapitation of an
endangered Florida pan-
ther.
Wildlife officers respond-
ed to a report of a dead
panther missing its head at


about 2 p.m. Nov. 19.
According to the report, the
body was found on the
shoulder of the road on the
southbound side of the
Florida Turnpike near the
Indian River and Osceola
county lines, near Yeehaw
Junction.
Florida panthers are on
both state and federal
endangered lists, said Joy
Hill, a FWC public informa-
tion officer.
"It is against the law to


intentionally kill them, it's
a felony, and is unlawful to
possess parts of them, so I
don't understand why
someone would want the
head," said Ms. Hill.
The remains were found
partially decomposed and
badly damaged, she said.
There are only an esti-
mated 117 adult and young
adult panthers left in Flori-
da, according to FWC
reports. Staff from FWC
capture panthers to fit


them with radio collars to
track population and terri-
tories.
A necropsy on the head-
less panther is planned in
an attempt to learn more
about how the panther
died, Ms. Hill said.
The state charges for
someone convicted of
killing the endangered ani-
mal is up to five years in jail
and/or up to a $5,000 fine,
Mg. Hill said.
On the federal side, a


criminally convicted. indif-
vidual would face up to a
year in prison 'and a
$100,000, or a $200,000
fine.
Ms. Hill said that there is
a reward of $1,000 offered
for information leading to
an arrest in this case.

Anyone with information
is encouraged to call the
Wildlife Alert Hotline at
(888) 404-3922. Tipsters can

Mr. Gray said.
The particular secotn,
approximately 5.5 miles- n
length, can only be esta-
lished with an erosion con-
trol line because the beach
is classified by the state as
"critically eroded," Mr. Gray
said.
The public workshop will
give property owners a
chance to ask questions and
to voice any concerns they
have about the line, he said.
At the end of the presenta-
tion and workshop, the
meeting will move to a pub-
lic hearing to establish the
line.
Mr. Gray. said that the
paperwork for the erosion
control line can be complet-
ed by Feb. 1, but if some-
thing happens to delay or
deny the line from being
established, it would throw
off the whole project.
"If we don't get it (the ero-
sion control line), we don't
get sand," Mr. Gray said.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
The Florida Eye Institute,
the United Way of Indian
River County and the
Senior Resource Associa-
tion's "Santa's for Seniors"
holiday gift drive will run
through Dec. 18.
The program provides
seniors, who otherwise
might not receive gifts this
holiday season, with a care
package from the commu-
nity.
In recognition of the
growing numbers of seniors
living on fixed incomes, the
program is significantly
expanding during the 2009
holiday season due, in no
small part, to the support
and sponsorship of Florida
Eye Institute.
This year, organizers are
challenging the community
to "fill the bus." The Senior
Resource Association has
donated time on an SRA-
Community Coach and the
organizers goal is to fill the
bus with unwrapped pres-
ents for seniors in need.
The campaign will
launch on Dec. 5, from 8
a.m.-noon at Florida Eye
Institute, 2750 Indian River
Blvd., inVero Beach.
Free refreshments and
vision screenings will be
offered. The public is urged
to bring an unwrapped gift
that day. A second day will

Cash catastrophe

While he will be in big trouble with the spin doctors in
the Obama administration, White House budget director
Peter Orszag has admitted that the current federal
spending spree is endangering the economy and that
"deficits of this size are serious and ultimately unsustain-
able."
They call it a "shortfall," but with red ink of $9 trillion
over the next 10 years, it is more like a catastrophe.

Healthcare reform

Politicians are claiming their "reform" of our health
care system will be "self-financed," but one blogger has
acknowledged this "subterfuge is historically necessary
to get great reforms enacted."
It has been known for some time, but now the elephant
is out of the room. So-called health care reform is
designed to make the public dependent on the govern-
ment and the costs will be placed squarely on the shoul-
ders of each and every one of us.

Don't buy into public option

Anyone who believes bureaucrats when they try to sell
the "public option" is really buying a pig in a poke.
No one knows how Washington will change our health
care but some things are certain. They do not know that
things will get better. They could get worse. And no one
knows how much these changes will cost. They probably
will get much better.
Of course, taxpayers will-be forced to pay the higher
price tag.

Vaccine shortages

-- Since-the government is running the show when it
---comes to the distribution of vaccines, why is the supply-
so limited, why is the system so inefficient and why are
some physicians recommending that if they do get sup-
plies they will be forced to offer only split doses?
This mess could be a preview of how the government
will operate if and when the politicians are able to take
over our entire health care system.

Disney in China?

I heard they are going to build a Disney World in China.
I sure hope they use a lot of Chinese drywall during con-
struction.

Flu prevention

You see so much about what to do when you get the
H1N1 virus, but what do we do to prevent it?
I know one thing is dressing properly. Stop wearing the
same things you would wear when it's 95 degrees outside.
It's getting chilly, so cover up. You can get sick that way.
And people should eat better and have a better diet.
Women have to do a better job feeding their husbands
before they go out to work. They need a power breakfast,
just like the children.

Editor's note: In several articles that have appeared in
Hometown News about the HIN1 flu virus, the No. 1 rec-
ommendation from medical personnel for staying healthy
is frequent hand-washing.

Cell phone laws

There's been a lot of talk about passing laws regarding
talking on phones while on cell phones.
Start giving them tickets when they don't use a turn sig-
nal. They only have two hands. One hand on the steering
wheel, one on a cell phone and no hand to turn on the
turn signal. That should start making them put the
phone down.

When to call for tech support


ell, it finally hap-
Spened.Your
V computer has issues
and it's time to call for help It
happens to every computer
user eventually- that
dreaded call to tech support.
This week, I will share some
tips that can make that
inevitable call to tech
support go smoothly.
The first question that you
have to ask yourself is: "Who
are you going to call?" That
answer depends on the
issues you are having.
For instance, if you are
having Internet connection
issues, you may want to call
your Internet provider (AOL,
AT&T, Comcast, Road
Runner or whoever you are
using to connect to the
Internet).
If you are having hardware
issues, such as problems
accessing a printer or other
device, you may need to
contact support for that
device.
For problems with Win-
dows (Windows won't load,
etc.), a call to Microsoft's tech
support may be in order.
If you are having problems
with the computer itself
(getting errors or beep codes
as soon as you turn it on),
you may want to call the
manufacturer of the comput-
er.


That's a lot of decisions to
make even before making
the call, but you need to be
clear about the nature of the
problem. Answering these
questions beforehand will
help clarify your issues
before you make the call.
Also, don't forget the
warranty. Some devices may
carry warranties that last
years. It would be frustrating
to fix or replace a device only
to find out you could have
had it fixed under warranty.
Once you're clear on whom
to call and why, sit in front of
the computer when you make
the call. There is little that
any phone support techni-
cian can do for you if you are
not sitting in front of the
machine. You have to be his
"eyes and ears" so make sure
that, when you call for help,
you are at your computer.
After spending some time
on hold, (nothing I can help
with there) you will finally get
someone on the line.
Remember: This person is
new to your issue and has no
idea what you have or have


not tried yet. He's going to
ask you questions and
perhaps have you click some
things.
Even if he is having you
click something you have
already clicked, comments
such as, "I already tried
that," don't help. He hasn't
tried anything yet and
needs to start somewhere.
Also keep in mind that
even if your tech support
person has a thick accent,
he probably does this 40
hours a week and knows
exactly what he's looking for.
When he asks you to click
something and you don't
immediately see it, don't
instantly reply with, "I don't
have that." Do a thorough
scan of all of the icons in
whatever screen you are
looking in and make sure.
Nine times out of 10, you'll
find it.
Follow the directions the
support person gives you,
and try not to get distracted
by all the other stuff that will
pop up on the way. Stay
focused on his or her
instructions and you'll
usually get through most
issues quickly and without
too much frustration.
Hopefully, you won't have
to make that call, but when
you do, having as much
information in front of you


will help. Things such as any
specific error messages that
may be popping up, what
you were doing when the
problem occurred and so
on. This information is
invaluable to the tech
support person on the other
end of the phone.
If you have a "quick
question," that's great. Just
remember that 99 percent
of all tech support calls are
just quick questions. It's the
answer that can drag on for
hours.
So, how did I come up
with this week's subject
matter?
Well, I used to work in a
phone support center and
spent better than 10 hours a
week on the phone helping
people walk through their
computer issues. I still fix
computers, and over the
years I found that the calls
that go quickest are the
ones where the caller is at
least a little prepared, in
front of the computer when
they call and follow my
instructions precisely
without getting distracted
along the way.

Fighting seasonal affective disorder


r he days get shorter at
this time of year, even
in Florida. Many of us
start to feel a little blue.
Those of us who came
from the north are familiar
with the "winter blues,"
when the days get short and
gray, the trees grow bare and
everything seems damp and
cold.
For many of us, escaping
the depression that came
with the winter weather was
a major reason for coming to
Florida to live, and snow-
birds continue to come here
each winter for our "best
season."
While the winter blues
may not be as severe in the
south, it is still a reality for
many people. Even in
Florida, the days grow
shorter and there are far
fewer hours of sunlight each
day. It can be sunny at 3
p.m. and dark by 4:30!
Those of us who are.
susceptible to the "winter
blues" or seasonal
affective disorder, as it is
medically known need to
. be alert, understand the
symptoms and take action to
ease the distress of SAD.
The first thing you need to
know is that SAD is a
recognized form of depres-
sion that has been linked to a
biochemical imbalance in
the brain. The imbalance is
brought on by the shorter
days and lack of sunlight. It
is real!
Some symptoms of SAD
include: excessive sleeping,
increased appetite and


ALIVE
& WELL
SHELLED KO0PPEL



weight gain (people often
turn to comfort food and
crave starches and sugars),
irritability, difficulties with
other people, especially
feelings of rejection, a heavy,
leaden feeling on the arms
and legs.
The American Psychiatric
Association (www.healthy-
minds.org) suggests a variety
of treatments that are
effective in managing or
staving off SAD.
The first thing to try is to
increase exposure to
sunlight..If possible, take a
walk or arrange an office or
room so that you are
exposed to a window. If you
work in a cubicle, try to get
out on your lunch hour. A
walk also decreases stress
and exercise has been found
to help with the symptoms
of SAD.
If your symptoms don't go
away, or affect your daily life,
then it's time to seek help. A
professional trained in the
treatment of depression may
recommend several treat-
ments including some
traditional measures such as
talk therapy and anti-
depressants.
However, he or she may
also recommend light
therapy, which has been very
effective in treating SAD.


This involves exposure to a
bright light from a special
fluorescent light box for
between 30 to 90 minutes a
day during the winter. Many
people notice improvement
within a few days, while
other may take a few weeks
to see improvement. If there
is none at all, other treat-
ments may be necessary.
Before investing in a bright
light device, you should
consult with your physician,
because people with certain
eye conditions and sensitivi-
ty to light may not be good
candidates for the treat-
ment.
In addition, someone
should monitor your
progress, to see how you are
feeling, and if the treatment
is appropriate for you.
Light therapy devices
range from metal boxes to
portable lamps. They
contain white fluorescent
light bulbs behind a diffuser,
so the light is at a downward
angle, allowing more to enter
the eyes. The diffuser
spreads the light evenly and
absorbs and filters danger-
ous ultraviolet rays. It is
extremely important to
purchase a light box from a
reputable company that can
provide independent
verification that the devices
they sell are free of ultravio-
let rays that can damage the
eyes and skin.
If seasonal affective
disorder is a problem for
you, it's a good idea to think
about a solution before the
clays grow shorter and


depression sets in. That's
when it seems hard to do
anything, including seek
treatment.
You can call 211 and ask
for organizations that
provide mental health
counseling, many on sliding
scales. You can also check
the yellow pages of the
phone directory under
mental health services.

National Institute of Health
at (800) 421-4211, or visit
www.nimh.nih.gov.
The Web site of The
Society for Light Treatment
and Biological Rhythms is
intended for professionals,
but it has an extensive
section on SAD for the
general public. The Web site

Timing and Social Security benefits


W hen people plan
and invest for
retirement, the
decision of when to begin
taking Social Security
benefits eventually comes
up.
Social Security is an
important source of
retirement income for
many individuals and,
therefore, the decision of
when to take these bene-
fits can make a big impact
on retirement income.
A retired worker who is
fully insured can elect to
start receiving benefits at
any time between ages 62
and 65 or later.
Benefits can start as
early as 62, but if'you so
elect, they are permanent-
ly reduced by 20 percent.
Here is where the question
arises. Is it better to start
taking checks at a reduced
amount or wait until
normal retirement age and
receive full benefits?
Before addressing the
inherent problems with
this empirical question,
let's look at some of the
factors and considera-
tions.
The early bird who
decides to get the worm,
first gets three years'
worth of checks, 36
payments, that the sleep-
ing bird will never see.
Thus, it will take some
time for the total benefits


of the person who waits
until age 65 to catch up to
those of the early collec-
tor.
Further, for those born
after 1937, normal retire-
ment age is being extend-
ed. Normal retirement age
is currently 65, yet due to
.the Social Security amend-
ments, full benefit age will
be raised gradually in two
stages until eventually
reaching 67 in 2027. Thus,
the early bird will receive
even more checks than the
retiree who bides his time
for full benefits.
If the early bird also did
not need the benefit
income and chose to
invest instead of spending
the checks, the investment
income would partially
offset the reduced yearly
benefit as well as extend
the catch-up period for
the age 65 collector.
Sounds like most people
would opt to be an early
bird.
As always, there are
other factors to consider.
Working an extra three
years will probably
increase the patient


retiree's benefits. This is so
because more earnings
will be credited toward the
Social Security account.
Chances are that old, low-
earning years will be
replaced in the benefit
equation with a current
high credit year. These
higher benefits will then
shrink the catch-up
period.
Delaying retirement
benefits beyond 65 until
age 70 will also increase
the size of the benefit due
to a credit provided by the
Social Security Adminis-
tration for such patience.
Further, for.those born
after 1937 who choose to
begin receiving benefits at
age 62, the reduction-in-
benefits penalty is further
stiffened from 20 percent
to an eventual 30 percent
in 2022. The hare will feel
the tortoise closing even
quicker.
Taxation of benefits may
also enter the picture.
Poor timing of Social
Security and other income,
may result in a good
portion of early benefits
being subject to inclusion
in income and painfully
taxed.
On the other hand, a
lower age 62 benefit may
mean that the taxpayer
will not meet the "com-
bined income" threshold
for benefits inclusion.


Empirical studies have
been done which generally
arrive at the same conclu-
sion.
Early bird collectors are
ahead of the game for about
12 to 15 years and then are
left behind the higher
benefit collector. Thus,
where a person is in good
health and foresees another
10 plus years of retirement
life, it is probably better to
defer taking benefits until
normal retirement age.
Of course, a universal rule
for when to take benefits is
impractical. Depending on
an individual's circum-
stances, it might make
more sense to begin taking
benefits as soon as possible,
regardless of the net
economic benefit in the
future.
This brief article is no
substitute for a careful
consideration of your
unique personal situation.
Before making any
significant retirement
planning or tax strategy,
consult your financial
planner, attorney or tax
advisor, as appropriate.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- Indian River Medical Cen-
ter's stroke program was re-
accredited by the Joint Com-
mission.
S. James Shafer, medical
director of the stroke team,
and Lisa Stalheber, education
coordinator, telemetry and
stroke team nurse champion,
along with representatives
from the critical care unit,
education, emergency
department, emergency
medical services, imaging
sciences, marketing, nursing


department, pharmacy and
other areas worked hard to
maintain a standardized
stroke alert protocol that
improves patient outcomes.
The Joint Commission was
highly complementary of the
quality of IRMC's stroke pro-
gram.
Surveyors conducted d
detailed evaluation, includ-
ing five tracers of current
stroke patients and reviewed
the hospital's compliance
with all the national patient
safety goals, said Deb Alder-
man, director of patient safe-
ty, quality management and
discharge planning.


"Bravo for all the hard work
of the stroke team, the IRMC
physicians and staff. Your
expertise, dedication and
genuine commitment to pro-
vide the highest quality of
care for stroke patients was
clearly evident in every step
of the survey process," said
Ms. Alderman.
The Joint Commission sur-
veyed IRMC on Oct. 23 for re-
certification. The Joint Com-
mission originally certified
IRMC as a primary stroke
center and bestowed its
"Gold Seal of Approval" to
IRMC's stroke program in
November 2007.

For Hometown News

TREASURE COAST -
Seacoast National Bank
delivered thousands of
pounds of food that were
donated at the bank's 29
branch locations in Indian
River, St. Lucie, Martin and
Palm Beach counties as a
result of the 2009 Food For
Families community food
drive.
For the second year as
the food drive sponsor, the
bank gathered non-perish-
able food donations,
which will be distributed
within the county where it
was gathered, through
established, nonprofit
organizations that distrib-
ute food to economically
challenged families and
individuals.
"We are grateful for the
unprecedented amount of
donations that were
brought into our branches
this year," said Dennis
Hudson, chairman and
CEO of Seacoast National
Bank.
"Our employees, cus-
tomers and the communi-
ty as a whole opened their


hearts and pantries to help
those less fortunate."
Although the bank does-
n't have an official
accounting of the amount
of food donated this year
at this time, the 2008 Food


For Families drive resulted
in 882,022 pounds of food
gathered that benefited
110 nonprofit organiza-
tions that feed families in
need and the homeless on
a regular basis.

n the past several columns,
I have been talking about
all sorts of plants that are
popular during the holidays.
Today, I am going to talk
about a couple of plants that
just don't seem to have as
much fame as some of the
other holiday plants.
Although you may find
these varieties are a bit harder
to locate locally, they are
available at some specialty
garden centers.
The cyclamen plant is the
first we are going to talk
about. The blossoms of the


GARDEN -.
NOOK
JOE ZELENAK -


cyclamen twist and turn
almost like the small wings of
a butterfly. The foliage has a
distinct silvery, marbleized
coloring that makes this plant
unique.
These plants are quite
beautiful, but they do require
a lot of care to stay healthy.
The most important criteria
for success are temperature
and moisture.
Cyclamen require low
temperatures to thrive for any
length of time. You must keep
them out of the warm,
outdoor temperatures and try
to keep them in an area of
your house that is cool. This is
tricky, because at the same
time, they also must be in an
area that has ample light.
Cyclamen also are finicky
about watering. They need to


be watered daily so that the
soil is kept evenly moist.
Always water your cyclamen
by wetting the soil and not the
plant. Watering the plant
foliage can cause the plant to
rot and die. Since the plants
like humidity, placing them
on a tray filled with pebbles
and water will help provide
the moisture the plant needs.
Feed your plants monthly
with a liquid plant food
designed for houseplants.
The anthurium plant is
another great plant that is
popular during the holidays
and can make a really nice
holiday table decoration.
These plants can grow in
the most diverse habitats and
do really well in our hot
tropical climate. Unlike the.
delicate cyclamen, these
plants will serve well as both a
holiday table decoration and
as an outside potted plant.
These plats are native to both
Hawaii and also in South
America. They are also readily
available at most local garden
centers.

Anthurium are relatively
easy to care for and enjoy.
They have very attractive
foliage and can produce
flowers almost year round.
They prefer a growing
medium that is course and
well drained. The best
mixture is a composite of peat
moss, pine barkand perilite.
These plants like to be
watered completely and then
allowed to dry slightly before
watering again.
Anthurium will grow either
indoors or out and will do
well in very bright locations. I
have had tremendous luck
with my plants under the
protected overhang of my
front porch.
They also require regular
fertilization in order to keep
their lush green foliage and
colorful flowers. Fertilize
using a slow release fertilizer
such as Osmocote for indoor
plants.
Although I have never had
any pest problems with my
plants, they are susceptible to
the usual indoor pests such as
scale, mealy bugs and aphids.
If problems arise, use a
plant insecticide that is
designed for indoor plants
and be sure to spray all parts
of the plant, especially under
the leaves.

Temple hosts Hanukkah concert


By Barbara Yoresh
Entertainment writer
VERO BEACH She's a
wife, mother, singer/song-
writer, spiritual leader and
techno whiz kid, who
embodies the can-do atti-
tude and hat-topped per-
sona of the late congress-
woman from New York,
BellaAbzug.
Beth Schafer of Orlando,
with or without her trade-
mark hats, is blessed with a
wealth of talent that she, in
turn, uses to bless others.
On Wednesday, Dec. 16,
she will appear to perform a
special Hanukkah concert
"Lighting Up Our House Of
Peace" at Temple Beth
Shalom inVero Beach.
The concert, which is
open to the entire commu-
nity, is presented by the tem-
ple as one of a continuing
series of musical and cultur-
al presentations underwrit-
ten by the Ike and Alezah
Eisentstein Music Fund.
All seating is open and
available in advance for
adults under age 62 at $18
each ($20 at the door);
adults age 62 and older at
$15 in advance ($20 at the
door; students and children
ages 16 and under at $12
each and family packages
for $65.
Light refreshments will be
served during the meet-
and-greet reception that
evening.


This congenial and gold-
en-voiced music-maker,
who was raised in New Jer-
sey, often melds traditional,
liturgical passages to mod-
em, originally composed
music. The results are stun-
ningly moving and touch
that universal chord of spirit
that lies within each person
regardless of religious affilia-
tion.
Ms. Schafer knew from an
uncommonly young age
that she wanted to pursue
music and from age 6 was
particularly drawn to the
guitar.
"I wanted to be Robert
Plant (lead singer of the
iconic British rock group
Led Zeppelin)," the 41-year-
old mother of two girls said
with a laugh.
As soon as she was able to
hold guitar, she learned to
play rock music by listening
to the radio. Music lessons
followed and she became
hooked on jazz.
While those who watched
the progress of her musical
growth were advising her to
major in performance in
college, Ms. Schafer decided
instead to seek degrees in
music theory and composi-
tion from the University of
Miami School of Music.
"I had no intentions of
being a performer. I just
wanted to write music for
film and TV," she said.
But after working "behind
the scenes" and creating

musical and promotional
materials for clients on an
emerging medium called
the. Internet, Ms. Schafer
decided she didn't enjoy
working with many of her
clients.
She found that through
performing her own music,
she could positively impact
lives with tenets taken from
faith and presented in an
entertaining and meaning-
ful way.
"There's a social con-
sciousness embedded in my
music," she said.


Ms. Schafer believes peo-
ple share certain universal
needs and through positive
energy negativism, fears and
tension can be neutralized.
"Music conveys Jewish
values in a user-friendly way
and through my Jewish
music, I am able to marry an
important piece of liturgical
text with current and perti-
nent American life," Ms.
Schafer said.
She plays particular atten-
tion to themes which define
Judaism as well as other

'Grove in Summer;' is one more than a dozen works
by Vero Beach dentist M. Johnson Hagood that will be
on display at the Artists Guild Gallery throughout
December.


By Barbara Yoresh
Entertainment writer
VERO BEACH Working
in a realm of cosmetic and
restorative dentistry that
requires precise manual
dexterity and a keen eye for
aesthetics, it is, perhaps, not
surprising that M. Johnson
Hagood is also an accom-
plished painter .whose
works will be featured
throughout December at
the Artists Guild Gallery
located at 1974 14th Ave. in
downtown Vero Beach.
"Color-rich Impressions
of Nature" will feature Dr.
Hagood's works in oil. An
opening reception for the
exhibit is free to the public
and will be held Friday, Dec.
4 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the
gallery with refreshments
plus new works in a wide
variety of mediums by
gallery member artists.
As one of only 300 den-
tists in the world, and only
10 in Florida, accredited by
the American Academy of
Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr.
Hagood found creating art
to be a natural extension of
his professional work,
which requires an artistic
eye and deft touch.


As a youngster, Dr.
Hagood took some art les-
sons but didn't really
explore art until his dental
practice was established.
"I'm pretty much self-
trained, but after 10 years of
dentistry, I started dabbling
again," he said.
A patient who is a mem-
ber artist of the Artist's
Guild Gallery noted his
paintings, which adorn his
office, and last year invited
him to be a guest artist.
"I sold my first painting to
another artist. Initially, I
didn't know anything about
selling my work and when I
was asked to be a guest
artist, they told me the
works should be priced for
sale," Dr. Hagood said.
With an appreciative eye
for beauty, especially of
nature, Dr. Hagood drew
inspiration for his paint-
ings.
"I do landscapes, still lifes
and alot of orchids because
I raise them. I also do pho-
tography.
"My artistic mission is to
share my passion of the
beauty of nature through
color-rich impressions of
the very nature that inspires

results have been simply astounding. I am proud of my smile and I use it a lot. When meeting people

Dr. Hagood's paintings are
infused with brilliant, eye-
catching color and rendered
with a distinctive impres-
sionistic style that is bold
and energetic, but nonethe-
less soothing to the eye.
"The paintings give me a
reason to use color other
than white," he said with a
laugh of reference to his
dental practice palette.
A Vero Beach resident for
eight years, Dr. Hagood and
his wife find the community
the perfect place to be for
business, artistic endeavors
and to raise children.
"One of the best things
about Vero Beach has been
meeting a lot of artists and
getting into the gallery has
been really fun. This com-
munity is a great place to
raise kids," Dr. Hagood said.
In the future, he would
like to combine his love and
knowledge of cosmetic den-


-7

tistry with his artistic
expressions.
"It's a dream of mine to
build a new office and have
an art gallery as an exten-
sion of that, because there is
a lot of cross-over between
what I do in my practice and
in art," he said.
The Artists Guild Gallery's
new downtown location and
expanded exhibit space is
exciting, Dr. Hagood said.
"It's amazing what this
new space is doing for the
gallery," he said.
He looks forward to meet-
ing art enthusiasts at the
opening of his exhibit as a

when you are serving oth-
ers. You love to see every-
body well fed and happy.
The more you receive the
more you can give. This is
your harvest of a good life
well lived.
Libra-Sept. 23-Oct. 22
A lifetime of accumulated
wisdom and experience
continues to move you for-
ward toward your dreams
and goals. Your decisions
are made on feelings and
instincts and allow you
access to 'your higher
power. This gives you a dis-
tinct edge. It is the stuff that
great souls use to guide
their lives. You are a great
soul.
Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
You continue to move for-
ward to new and better
days. You have outgrown
old, outdated patterns. You
aren't stuck anymore. Your
creative juices are flowing
again. Get restarted on the
life project that has been
sidetracked for a while. You
have the blessing of the
universe upon you. You are
a free spirit ready to fly.
Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
The universe wants to give
you all the energy you need
to make it safely through
the holidays. Yeah! It's time
to celebrate. Call some fam-
ily members and friends
who love and miss you. In
the giving we receive back
100 fold. Get back to your
roots. Renew your life force
and spirit. Watch out world.
Here I come!
Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You are doing great. Not


much change is needed.
Stay with your major goals.
Your positive attitude has
set you in an excellent
direction. The holidays will
be great and very exciting
for you. You have overcome
life. People are beginning to
tell you how young you
look. Could anyone be
doing better? I don't think
so.
Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Family matters will take
center stage the next few
weeks. Stay true to yourself,
but pay attention to others
who need emotional sup-
port. Stay in a festive mood.
A bright attitude brings
cheer to any occasion. Glad-
ly give your support to
those who need you.
Return love received with
love given. This justifies


your life.
Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Stay focused on your main
creative projects. The uni-
verse will reward you with
much increase. Your power
of observation is especially
strong now. Let the holidays
be a time of rejoicing and
celebration for the many
blessings this year. Open up
the heart even more and
know that the coming year
will be the best ever.

TRAVEL


On board the Carnival. Dream


Ihad the opportunity
recently to tour the
Carnival Dream in Port
Canaveral. She is quite a
vessel.
Much larger than all other
Carnival ships, the Dream
has many firsts for Carnival
and many industry innova-
tions and enhancements.
The Dream is different
from all other Carnival ships
in that it is bigger and has
added features that will
appeal to many cruisers,
whether they are Carnival
fans or not.
As with all their newer
vessels, it was designed by
architect and designer Joe
,Farcus who, is in my opin-
ion, is over-the-top in color
and concept however, I also
must say each of his designs
is top notch.
The Dream, I felt, was
more brass and glass than
others, but still with
unimaginable amounts of
color and lines that go from
wavy to geometric and are
lighted in some form or
another.
We entered the Dream on
deck three, right onto the


lowest deck of the 11 story
atrium. There is definitely a
wow factor. You look up
from the atrium floor,
following the glass elevators
up to deck 14, and all you
see are squares of lighted
yellow/gold glass with specs
of a darker bronze. These
lighted squares (sometimes
seen in other shapes) can be
found in various areas
around the ship.
Each floor surrounding
the atrium with its glass
circular stairway that goes
up to deck five has brick-
color banquettes surround-
ing the glass railing so you
can watch entertainment
that goes on throughout the
day in the atrium.
From the atrium going
forward will bring you to the
lowest level of the three
story Encore theatre which
was lovely in its


orange/brick and beige
tones.
We did see a portion of the
show "Dancing in the
Streets" which was an
upbeat musical and dance
ensemble; very enjoyable.
We had a great view, but
there are areas you will need
to avoid due to obstructions
by poles. There is plenty of
seating.
We ate a wonderful lunch
in the Scarlet Restaurant. If
this is indicative of all meals
aboard then there should be
no complaints. The wait


staff was pleasant and
efficient.
Speaking of lunch, while
touring the ship we went by
The Gathering, which is the
buffet on lido deck and
although the food looked
good, there were lines at all
of the food kiosks and many
folks got off the ship. on
excursions. This might be a
concern for me, however it
is a new ship and a new
layout, therefore they can be
excused until everything

around deck five and would

across the middle of the
deck connecting to a lanai
with its spa hot tubs hang-
ing off the both sides of the
ship.
Ocean Plaza offers.
entertainment, Plaza Bar
and Caf6. There is both day
and nightly entertainment.
Walking from the lanai
along the upper promenade,
you will come across Wasabi
sushi bar, Caliente dance
club, The Song jazz bar,
Sam's Piano Bar and onto
the 420-seat Burgundy

The room, although pretty
much the same size, the
d6cor and overall feel of
them is relaxing, as are the
corridors getting to and
from your spa stateroom.
The technology on board
this ship is unbelievable.


Instead of the Internet cafds
on most ships the Dream
has fun hubs, which are all
over the ship and give guests
totally free access to
onboard activities.
You can create blogs for
other, like-minded folks
onboard to share and you
can leave messages for
those in your family or
group to let them know
where you are and what
your plans are, really fun
stuff. The ship has Wi-Fi
almost everywhere on board
and once you sign up (there
is a fee) you can use your
laptop.
The Carnival Dream will
make Port Canaveral its
homeport starting with a
nine-day sailing Dec. 3. She
will then start her regular
alternating Eastern and
Western Caribbean itiner-
aries leaving on Saturdays.

Beyond simple stacking., multi-stack to magnify savings


In previous columns, I've
discussed coupon
stacking at great length.
It's one of the easiest ways
not only to reduce the cost of
items we're buying, but also
to get items for free.
Many stores allow shop-
pers to stack one store
coupon and one manufac-
turer coupon together, which
gives us an even deeper
discount on the same item.
Just a few days ago I
purchased a $2.50 tube of
toothpaste. I used a $1.50
manufacturer coupon for the
toothpaste and I added to it a
$1 store-issued coupon for
the same toothpaste. With a
total of $2.50 in coupon
value, the toothpaste was
free! And free is, of course,
my favorite price to pay.
Store coupons are offered
in different formats, so it's
important to note which
kinds your stores offer. Do
some research. Many stores
.print their store coupons in a
weekly flyer. Others offer

printable coupons on the
store's Web site. Still others
offer store coupons electron-
ically. These electronic
coupons can be loaded to
your shoppers' card and
stacked with manufacturer
coupons for additional
savings.
Now, when we combine
coupon stacking with other
deals running at the store at
the same time, our savings
increase even more. What's
better than stacking? Multi-
stacking. When we multi-
stack at the store, we use
both store and manufacturer
coupons and take advantage
of additional money-back
deals involved.
These additional deals
typically offer instant savings
at the register or a money-
back coupon (commonly
called a Catalina) that prints
at the register for savings on
a subsequent shopping trip.
Here's an example. One of
my stores recently advertised
a sale offering a Catalina

items that are going to be the.
best deals, typically, the
items for which I already
have both store and manu-
facturer coupons.
During this particular sale,
the store had triple-packs of
baby wipes on sale for $5.99.
Buying two items in the
promotion will earn me a $5
coupon for my next shop-
ping trip. To keep track of my
savings, I always figure that
$5 savings into my current
shopping trip. I may pay that
$5 out-of-pocket at the
register to buy these items

today, but I get it right back
in the form of a Catalina
good for $5 off my next
shopping trip. So, buying two
packages of wipes costs
$11.98 but I'll get $5 of that
back at checkout. That
essentially brings the cost of
the two packages of wipes
down to $6.98 for two
packages.
To bring the price down
further, we're going to stack
coupons here, too. I had a
manufacturer coupon for $2
off two packages of wipes.
The wipes were also on my
electronic store coupons for
$1.50 off each package. So,
stacking these coupons
together yields another $5 in
savings.
After coupons, I paid $6.98
for the two triple-packs of
baby wipes and I received
the $5 Catalina coupon at
the register. Since I got $5 of
my original $6.98 back, the
end cost of these two items
was just $1.98. Triple-packs

a package? That's a great
price, made possible by
multi-stacking. Consider
that each triple-pack started
out at $5.p9 before all of
these discounts were put
together.
Anytime I see sales at the
supermarket that involve
money-back promotions, I
always look for both store
and manufacturer coupons
to help reduce the final price
I pay even further.
In the weeks ahead, I'll


show you more examples of
multi-stacking and explain
how to, make the most out of
these promotions.
