SEBRING - Two years ago, Highlands County's population teetered over 100,000. Last year, it dropped to 99,713. Today, it's 99,215.
That's the word from the University of Florida's Bureau of Economic and Business research.
"This will be the interim forecast until we get the census," said county planner Don Hanna. "That will come in March of next year."
Exactly where those people have gone is a bit of a mystery, however.
