It appears that when it comes to doing it yourself, the Avon Park – Sebring metro area is one of the best. A survey by Porch shows that since the Coronavirus situation, increasing numbers of people spend more time at home improving their living space.
The analysis shows that there are more than five hardware, furniture and appliance stores per each 10,000 residents locally. That beats the national average of 4.5 stores per 10,000 residents.
The data used for the survey comes from Zillow, the US Census Bureau and the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
Up to now, it’s only been hens and potbellied pigs allowed to be kept as livestock in the city of Sebring. This week, Sebring city council members voted to allow at least one cow – or bovine animal – to be housed inside the city limits.
The special exception will allow just one cow to be kept “for educational purposes,” from August until it is shown at the Highlands County Fair next year.
The Lakeland-based Publix supermarket chain has drawn a hard line on Coronavirus vaccines for children under the age of five, saying that their pharmacies would not administer the shots to children under five despite the recent Emergency Use Authorizations.
Reportedly, company officials do not plan to offer any explanation for the decision.
