SEBRING - Nine homeless men who live in the woods across Kenilworth from =
Sebring High School have been offered homes in Tampa, said Terri =
McClelland.

McClelland and Anthony Lomonico, volunteers with the Highlands County =
Coalition for the Homeless, surveyed the men after reading in Highlands =
Today Thursday about them being removed from vacant land behind the =
Highlands Homes subdivision. Some men have been living in the woods for =
three years, they said.

"We're going to make the offer to them," McClelland said. "I don't know =
if they'll go, but we're going to make the offer."

Capt. Randy LaBelle of Highlands County Sheriff's Office said Thursday =
the men were offered an opportunity to go to the homeless mission on =
Lemon Street, but declined. LaBelle speculated that they prefer to live =
outdoors because liquor is forbidden at the shelter. One man admitted to =
having an alcohol problem, and the woods were littered with beer bottles =
and cans.

McClelland and Lomonico met the men Friday afternoon on a street behind =
a Mobil convenience store. They surveyed Tim Fanning and Johnny Malone, =
who have set up their own tents and lean-tos with tarp roofs and walls. =
Richard Reinhardt, executive director of the homeless coalition, said =
about 700 homeless people were counted in Highlands County during a =
survey two weeks ago.

"We're just out here to see if we can help you," Lomonico said as he =
introduced himself to Fanning.
"You can help us by getting us jobs," Malone answered. They both worked =
Friday at Labor Finders, a personnel agency temporary workers.

"We only got five hours," both men said. They receive $46 for an 8-hour =
day.
