Avon Park no longer has a recreation board. Without comment, city council members have repealed the municipal statutes providing for such a committee and turned the administration of recreation in the City of Charm – over to staff.
Council member Jim Barnard was assured that the city could re-instate the recreation board in the future if circumstances dictated it.

Law enforcement agencies across the county have been posting videos of their officers mouthing the words to popular rock, rap and country songs hoping to go viral in what is known as “The Lip Synch Challenge.”
Now, Lake Placid Police Chief James Fansler has added a new wrinkle – saying his department will submit a worthy video -IF – they receive 120 bags of school supplies for needy kids in the upcoming school year.
Fansler promises “an epic video” if the goal is met. The collection will start this coming Monday.
