County EOC is ready for hurricane season
Took part in statewide drill last week
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy@newssun.com SEBRING -r- Hurricane season started Monday, but the Highlands County Emergency Operations Center was preparing last week with a hurricane drill.
Other counties across the state joined in the conference call with the National Hurricane Center, three different National Weather Service locations and state government officials.
"We had all the different conference calls that we do as if there was a real hurricane," said Erin Gercken, who works at the EOC and participat-
ed in the calls.
In the early stages of the mock hurricane track, the eye was going over Lake Placid.
"We were lucky," Gercken said. "They threw a curve ball at us and had it go though Miami and Fort Myers."
They also gave scenarios in the hurricane drill. Highlands County had to deal with power outages and Ocoee, further north in Florida, faced tornadoes.
"We were on our toes wondering

Kidd
Cops: Man uses dead woman's ID to charge over $20K
By TREY CHRISTY
trey.christy @ newssun .com SEBRING A Sebring man is back in jail after reportedly using the identity of a recently deceased woman to obtain credit cards.
David Kidd, 25, allegedly used at least one of the fraudulently obtained cards to pay off court bills from an arrest last year for theft, a phone bill and a cable bill.
Kidd is listed as unemployed.
His arrest report details charges and attempted charges in excess of $22,000, including more than $3,000 in gift cards at Sears and K-Mart, which were declined by the company "due to fraud."
According to the report, Kidd applied for the cards online using the name, date of birth, and Social Security number of a woman who had died in September. He applied for the cards only three days after the woman died, but authorities are unsure how he got the information.
The victim's daughter, who lives in Avon Park, said her mother did not give out her information to anyone.
The Capital One credit card with charges linked to Kidd was sent to a post office box in Sebring "which Kidd has used as an address on several purchases made fraudulently," said the report by Det. Michael Theodorou of the Highlands County Sheriff's Office.
Other purchases and payments allegedly made by Kidd were shipped to the same address or charged to the Capital One card.
Payments for services were also charged, including four charges, totaling $2,250, "for restitution for crimes (Kidd) committed,"

Doug Barnard of Avon Park draws a smile from his wife Iihua Qin during the couples' wedding ceremony in China.
Avon Park man's love story ignores all boundaries
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK - How far would you go to get married?
For one Highlands County resident, the answer is simple: As far as it takes.
That was the response Doug Barnard, who resides in Avon Park, stated when asked that question.
Barnard just returned from China � yep, that China � where he tied the knot with Lihua Qin, a Chinese national.
"The actual marriage was easy. We just had to apply to and go to a government office where they approved the paperwork. What was hard was the traditional reception that followed," Barnard said.
'We just clicked. I
used translation software for most of
what we talked about, and so did
she, but we just seemed to get along.'
DOUG BARNARD
new groom
Unfortunately, he had to return to the United States alone because Lihua has not been given permission to leave the country from the Chinese Consulate yet.
Barnard started the process more than two years ago. The two love birds met online and decided to get married,
regardless of the fact that neither one speaks a common language.
"We just clicked, I used translation software for most of what we talked about, and so did she, but we just seemed to get along," Barnard said.
Barnard proposed in February 2007, while in China visiting Lihua, but they were told to get their paperwork in order before it could become official.
Then an accident left' Barnard stranded here in the States while his future wife was stuck on the other side of the world.

County adopts pricier records policy
Those wanting
to examine public records will have to pay
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
SEBRING - With a unanimous vote on Tuesday, Highlands County commissioners voted to make it more expensive to review public records.
According to the County's Attorney Ross Macbeth, the new policy is more comprehensive than the last one adopted on Oct. 20, 2002.
"There is about six times more stuff in here than in your old policy," Macbeth said.
"The statute does cover specifics like copying, but does not cover things like the amount it takes for a high-paid official to spend time finding documents i and turning them over for a public records request," Macbeth said.
Macbeth outlined the fact that the new policy would allow the county to charge individuals for the chance to just review records, regardless of if copies were made.
Included in that cost will now be the salaries, health-care benefits, payroll taxes, unemployment benefits, worker's compensation, retirement plan contributions, and insure ance for the time it would take in "extraordinary efforts" to locate and reproduce records.
Macbeth defined extraordinary efforts as taking more than 30 minutes of any county employee's time.
"The rest of the taxpayers should not shoulder the burden for the time it takes to do a records search for one individual. People come in on a daily basis and ask for public records, and you may have one individual just working on records requests," Macbeth said.
Additionally, Macbeth told commissioners that the county's new policy also states that they no longer have an obligation to provide records for

Shana Paris, 31, killed; two kids injured when van leaves road, hits tree
By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher.tujfley@newssun.com SEBRING - Thirty-one-year-old, Shana Elizabeth Paris of Sebring was killed Saturday afternoon when the van she was driving collided into two trees in the front yard of the residence at 13009 U.S. 98. She was not wearing a seat belt at the time.
Two children were also injured.
Zoey Paris, 5, was transported to Highlands Regional Medical Center by ambulance, according to the Florida Highway Patrol report, in serious condition. The FHP reported that Zoey was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
Highlands Regional refused to release any information on the child's condition, Tuesday, including whether or not she was still a patient in the hospital . Vada Paris, 1, was airlifted to Tampa
Paris
General Hospital from the scene of the accident in critical condition. While still in the hospital, she has been upgraded to fair condition. According to the FHP report, Vada was not wearing a seat belt.
The crash occurred just east of the bend on U. S. 98, about a mile east from the junction with U.S. 27. There were no other vehicles involved in the incident.
The FHP reported that is not known what actually caused the van to leave the road, but it traveled onto the grass shoulder and down an embankment, roughly parallel with the highway, until it crashed into the two trees.

Sebring High School graduate Alanna O'Neill accepts the keys to a Ford Focus during ceremonies Saturday at Firemen's Field.
Special to the News-Sun SEBRING - The Alan Jay Automotive Network awarded four new car owners in Highlands and Hardee counties - the four winning seniors of Alan Jay's 11th annual "Wheels for A's" program.
The fun began Friday night in Avon Park when the enthusiasm and excitement of Angeline Carrillo.was obvious to all as she ran up to the stage after hearing her name called as the winner of a "Red-Devil" red Chevrolet Aveo.
Saturday was a busy day, as three winners were announced, each with a special story.
During the inaugural presentation in Hardee County, the large crowd listened intently, breaking into thunderous applause when Bailee Williams' name was read
aloud. The proud (and shocked) co-valedictorian became the first-ever winner at Hardee High School and took home a burgundy Chrysler PT Cruiser.
Just minutes later at the graduation ceremonies in Sebring, a stunned Alanna O'Neill couldn't believe she was the winner of a blue Ford Focus.
When asked if she had a car already, she replied that she drove her dad's car.
The 34th car given away during the program - and the final one this year - was awarded to. a very happy Andrew Morrison. He and his family beamed as he was awarded the keys to a white and "Green Dragon" green Chevrolet Cobalt. Winning has become a family tradition for the Morrisons, as

Andrew's sister was also a lucky winner just four years earlier.
The "Wheels for A's" program rewards one lucky senior at each of the four area public high'schools who have
received at least one "A" during their senior year. This year, more than 300 seniors entered the program, with over 3,000 entries received -one entry for each "A" they earned.
Arc Food Service graduates celebrate
Special to the News-Sun AVON PARK - The Ridge Area Arc Food Service Graduation day on May 29 was filled with joy and tears.
Most of the consumers who participated were excited that the 14-week training program was over but others like Maricel Moreno, of Sebring, shed a few tears of joy.
"I can't believe I did it," Moreno said as tears flowed down her face.
Moreno was one of 18 consumers and six staff members who received certificates at the graduation ceremony at Arc.
Moreno's mother watched in the audience as her daughter got her certificates. "She's so happy," Estela Moreno said. "I am so proud of her and she's so proud of herself. She has been talking about this training every day she comes home."
Estela admitted it takes patience to work with people with learning disabilities like her daughter and she admires the Arc staff in having that ability. "I know I can't do it," she said.
Arc Food Service graduate Jeffrey Crews' mother also made a special trip to watch her son get his certificates. "It's all he talks about. He has never been interested in working at a job until he started the food service train-

ing," Suzanne Crews, of Lake Wales, said.
There were certificates awarded for the SafeStaff Foodhandler Training Program, Table Set Up and Food Service. The Foodhandler Program is an approved food safety program through the State of Florida Division of Hotels and Restaurants. This certification is good for three years.
The other two certifications were based on the training needed to set tables and serve food and drinks in the Avon Park Depot Museum Dining Car. The Table Set Up test has 15 points while the Food Service test has 20. There were a total of 55 points with all three tests.
The valedictorian was Angie Luft, of Sebring, who
scored 54 out of 55-' on all three tests. She got 19 out 20 on Foodhandler test, a perfect 15 on Table Set Up test and a perfect 20 on the Food Service test.
"I would like to thank Arc staff for teaching me how to serve food and drinks correctly. I have learned to set tables, pour drinks and serve food. I have met new people and learned to speak up," Luft said. "I like working as a team with my friends when serving. This training has helped me to get out in the community to get a job, make money and get my own place or go to camp."
The salutatorian for the class was Tina Miller, of Wauchula, who scored 53 out a possible 55 on all three tests. She scored a perfect 20
on the Foodhandler test, 14 out of 15 on the Table Set Up test and 19 out of 20 on Food Service test.
"I learned about washing my hands, setting the table and serving food and drinks. This training has helped me to learn how to get a job and work at the dining car," Miller said. "Thanks to (Arc staff) Tiffany Perry and Cindy Marshall for training us. Thanks to (Avon Park Depot Museum Director) Elaine Levey for giving us the opportunity to work and serve the community."
Each of the women gave a speech to their class as well

County prepared as hurricane season begins

what we would have to be prepared for," Gercken said. "1 thought it was really informative; very helpful."
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has said there is a 70 percent chance of having nine to 14 named storms this season, of which four to seven could become hurricanes, including one to three major hurricanes of category three and above.
An average season has 11 named storms, including six hurricanes and two major hurricanes.
NOAA officials cautioned reading too much into this preliminary data, or any data.
"Prepare for each and every season regardless of the seasonal outlook," said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., the lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAA's climate prediction center. "Even a near or below normal season can produce landfalling hurricanes, and it only takes one landfalling storm to make it a bad season."
The EOC, leading by example, is already updating its contact information for each hospital and making sure each shelter is adequately stocked.
"One guy is going to all the shelters and replacing expired items or items that have been used," Gercken said. "We are inventorying all the items and making sure we have everything we need."
In the case of emergency or for more information about hurricane season and preparedness in Highlands County, visit the EOC web site at hceoc.org. During a storm the county updates the page with the most recent storm tracks and warnings.
If the county suffers from power outages, like in the recent hurricane drill scenario, the EOC broadcasts on the radio.

'Skinny black line' in forecasts misleading
Local man finds love, new wife in China
T was welcomed right away, and felt at home without much hassle.'
By JESSICA GRESKO
Associated Press Writer MIAMI � The "skinny black line," long a staple of forecasts showing a hurricane's projected path, could be a casualty of the 2009 Atlantic hurricane season that began Monday.
While urging preparedness, the director of the nation's hurricane center said he's on a crusade against the line, which forecasters have long called misleading.
Bill Read said this year, people who go to the hurricane center's Web site to track an approaching storm won't see that line, just a graphic that shows a cone representing the projected path of its center. He'll also urge local weather offices to use a line-less graphic.
Read said that over the last year he realized just how many people mistakenly use the line to determine how they'll respond to the storm � like whether to evacuate or
make other preparations.
"This way you don't have that option. You have to think about it or assume that it's somewhere in that swath, which is the correct way to think about it," said Read, who is starting his second season as the center's director.
The line could be interpreted as the storm narrowing in on a town or city while three days out from land it could really be targeting a whole section of coast.
Hurricane season .runs from June to November and is typically busiest in August and September.
Federal forecasters predicted a near-normal hurricane season with nine to 14 named tropical storms. The season is expected to include four to seven hurricanes with one to three likely to be major �- Category 3 or higher, with winds more than 111 miles per hour. There were five major hurricanes last year.

Theodorou said.
The charges were to a company called Governmental Payment Service, which accepts payments for state and local courthouses in regards to restitution payments from individuals who have been convicted in crimes or infractions.
� Further linking Kidd to the
fraudulent card are alleged charges of $1,585.94 to a Comcast account in his name and a Sprint cellular phone payment for $971, also for an account registered to Kidd.
Theodorou said that he was able to link the charges to only one of the two cards Kidd was able to obtain, and that an application for a third Was denied.
Kidd was booked on
theft of more than $20,000; fraud to obtain property more than $20,000; using the personal identification of a
use of credit cards. He remained in the Highlands County jail Tuesday afternoon on $40,000 bond.

work when I got back to the U.S., but right after that, in June, I was in an accident and broke both of my clavicles. I was advised against traveling, and so we had to wait.
"I got approved at first, but then the Chinese Consulate changed their mind because I did not make the trip right away. So the paperwork kind of slipped to the wayside, and I had to re-apply. I was told it might take up to a year to finish the red tape, so I just flew over and we got married," Barnard added.
According to the 61-year-old Barnard, Lihua is 50, but the age .is not a big deal.
"She has three kids - a daughter who is married, a son in college, and another son who is out on his own. And they all seem to like me, but we don't think about the age difference. We're both grown up," Barnard joked.
Meeting the family was easy, according to Barnard, but the mother-in-law was a bit tougher.
"She said she likes me, and she and I have had some good talks, but she does not want her daughter to move to the U.S. They are really close knit as a family, and their culture promotes that," he said.
"I like her attitude, and I like the fact that I was introduced as Grandpa to the little ones. I was wel-

corned right away, and felt at home without much hassle," he said.
Although the wedding was quick, the reception afterward was long and tiresome, and most of it had to be translated to Barnard because he does not. speak the language.
"We had to stand outside the restaurant for hours and hand out gifts to the guests, and there were a lot of guests. My legs just about gave out. Then we had to ' change into the red silk clothes and I had to share tea and a drink with everyone there. It was really a casual affair, but we still, had to follow tradition," Barnard said.
Red stands for good luck in Chinese culture, Barnard said.
Barnard has plans to return to China when he has permission from the Consulate, and help his new bride move to this country, but does not expect it to happen quickly.
"You have to jump through a lot of hoops to get this done, and we both expect it to take over a year," he said.
Bill bolsters health care access for kids
TALLAHASSEE (AP) -More Florida children will soon have easier access to state-subsidized health insurance.
Gov. Charlie Crist signed a bill Tuesday that shortens the time families must wait before switching to KidCare after losing private coverage. It also allows a family
that had KidCare dropped for failure to pay to get back into the system more quickly. Florida KidCare includes the Healthy Kids program, which subsidizes insurance for low-income families through state and federal funds. Nearly 176,000 children are enrolled in Healthy Kids.

anyone who has an outstanding bill.
"One of the cities, I forget which, were successful in refusing a records request because the individual had not paid for their last request. If you have any costs that were not paid, you do not have to produce the records," Macbeth stated.
"We have an obligation to protect those records from destruction and concealment, so we have to provide someone to supervise them," Macbeth added.
"It is not the public's right
to be handed a box of records, and then let them go into a room and do what they want," Macbeth said.
The new policy also allows the county to charge rent on the room provided.
Finally, in addressing the fact that the county already has pays some one to assist in public records research, the new policy asserts that "The Public Information Coordinator is merely a coordinator of public records and information requests for the of the public and to assure compliance with Florida law by coordinating responses to public records requests."

Editorial & Opinion___
Today's Editorial
Taxpayers will end up paying more for local bidder preference
On the surface, it looks like a good deal: Local vendors will now get a preference when they bid for contracts in the city of Sebring.
But what the idea leaves out is the fact that taxpayers will now pay more for the city's purchases.
Seven percent if the bidder is from Sebring, and five percent if they are from the county, for everything under $250,000.
At 4 percent from $250,000 to $1 million. 3 percent from $1 million to $2 million, and 2 percent for everything over $2 million.
The News-Sun agrees there are some
merits to local bidding preference -local contractors could see more work, a possible increase in jobs and tax returns for the city - but there are some definite drawbacks to the new policy that was not discussed before it was passed.
With two or possibly three city council members already collecting a paycheck as contractors, one has to wonder how the new rules will effect them in the long run.
If'will definitely give them a leg up over county-wide competition for contracted services.
And it could look like they are stacking the deck for themselves over those outside the county.
Additionally, a preference increases the cost for taxpayers that could amount to hundreds of thousands over a year's time.
For a contract at $249,999 that would
mean $17,000 more in cost to the taxpayer, and if the bid is over $1 million, the taxpayer could have to foot an additional $30,000.
That's almost an average job in Highlands County that will be overspent on just one contract. �
It curtails competitiveness, some vendors won't- even apply because of the advantage, and preferred bidders feel more confident and will not put their best price forward.
Finally, it has been argued successfully that bidder preferences are unconstitutional and deters interstate commerce.
So, on the surface, giving local contractors a preference when bidding looks like a commendable idea, and it shows that the council is concerned about local vendors, but it does leave the taxpayer out in the cold, with empty pockets.
A violation of oaths of office
Editor:
The residents of Spring Lake subdivision are currently facing what is perhaps the most serious attempt by a public body to change forever the character, feel and costs associated with living here.
I, as a resident of Spring Lake, charge the Spring Lake Board of Supervisors with violating their oaths of office and voting for special interests and not those they took an oath to represent. There is nothing worse in Florida or national laws than corrupt public officials.

Highlands Tea Party plans more events
Editor:
The Highlands County Tea Party, held under the pines at the Florida State Firemen's Association headquarters on US 27 south of Avon Park on Saturday, May 16, attracted an estimate of 250 to 300 citizens, many of whom showed up in patriotic attire and holding signs expressing their opinions and concerns.
Despite a few minor problems with the sound system, all speakers and entertainers at the event were well received by the enthusiastically engaged audience. Speakers included local citizen Mike Barry, on the subject of "Apologies;" Steven Hayes, a spokesperson for Americans for Fair Taxation, on the subject of the Fair Tax; local minister Jim Kuh, on the subject of "One Nation Under God;" local citizen and member of the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps Bill Landes, on the subject of immigration; local citizen Bill Youngman,on
the subject of E-Verify; local citizen Leslie Sparks, of Sparks Hardware, on the subject of the Second Amendment; local citizen and talk show host Barry Foster on the subject of the "Fairness Doctrine;" and the keynote speaker, Gayle Harrell, former Florida State Representative, who touched on a number of subjects of concern on local, state and federal levels. The Master of Ceremonies was the always entertaining Don Elwell. The crowd also enjoyed patriotic musical entertainment provided by Rebecca Loweke a/k/a Rebecca Faith and Sadie Shoffner. Hot dogs and drinks were served, and a good time was had by all.
Cochair members of The Highlands Tea Party consider the event a success and have already begun working on plans for future events, which are tentatively scheduled to occur on or about Flag Day, June 14, and the 4th of July. In an effort to spread the word, the group also has opened a Web page at htttp://thehighlandstea-party.com that outlines local events, chronicles other statewide tea party efforts, and other related topics of interest, in addition to opening a myspace page and a facebook page.

Students get lesson with veterans
Editor:
I had the opportunity to attend the first "Honor Veteran's Day" at the Lake Placid Middle School (recently).
It was the first time for such a great event. It was a
Today's Letters
. great success.
Veterans from many military organizations were represented such as Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard. They had tables of items such as uniforms, gas masks, flags, medals and many other items.
The students came in different groups to talk to the veterans and ask questions, and did they ever ask questions.! I hope that the wealth Of information they received will be retained and that they talk about it for some time and understand what a veteran is and why the veteran did what they did for our freedom.
I wish on behalf of all of us that attended to thank Dr. Bryan and Bev House and the other faculty that was involved in this endeavor. I think it was a terrific idea to educate the students as to the veteran. We all should try and teach our children why we have veterans and what they have done for all of us.
The freedom we all enjoy daily has come at a great price and is still being paid for daily by our fighting troops. Freedom is not free. Enjoy it while you can. And .don't for get to thank a veteran. They earned this freedom for us.
Thanks also for the great breakfast we were able to enjoy before our presentations. Until next time, God bless the veteran and God bless America.

What about the loyal opposition?
Editor:
Whatever became of the concept of the loyal opposition? Just a lew short
months into the Obama administration and the Republicans, unable to structure a rational policy for their party, are shrieking treason and disaster. Now disowning the eight years of folly and mal-administration they are carping about the speaker of the House's knowledge of their illegal deeds as if this is tantamount to approval and complicity. Another pathetic example of political jiu-jitsu.
Unwilling or unable to just own up to the fact that the Bush administration knowingly committed torture in pursuit of trying to justify blaming Iraq for the 9-11 attacks planned and carried out by Saudis, the salient issue has become whether Nancy Pelosi was informed of their misdeeds or not. What skewed logic.
Not surprisingly, our home grown neocons, Dick Ford among them, are eager to pile on, to be counted among the thoughtless and the slanderers. Unable to structure a rational dissent they instead resort to misdirection and denial.

Sebring not too big for great neighbors
Editor:
Sebring is the greatest place to live! Even though Sebring is becoming almost a "big city," it still has that small town character that gives us concern for one another (like if Someone loses a pet). One very special neighborhood is Crystal Lake Club and Lakeview Memorial Gardens. Earl and Debbie at Lakeview Memorial Gardens and the residents of Crystal Lake Club gave me a very happy ending to a terrible week.

After fracturing my hip and being in the hospital, my very spoiled little dog was distressed and ran away from her caregiver. She (and I) endured seven nights of being lost, including two terrifying rain storms. Me, my family and friends put out signs, food and spoke to whoever we could find in the area. We also prayed a lot. My heart was broken.
The whole community was on the lookout for little Blossom and all we met were so anxious to help. Finally a lady called -Blossom had been spotted and her husband was following her in his golf cart, as I hurried over there in my car. When I called to her, she promptly jumped in, as if to say "What took you so long?"
I just want to say that Sebring is lucky to have neighborhoods like this. What a great example of community spirit and concern for a stranger and her lost dog. To the residents there, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Also thanks to News-Sun for running my ad in the lost and found section and a big thank you to the staff at Sun 'N Lake Road Crew, E.M.S., Federal Security and all who helped after my fall.

Georgia On My Mind

Shifting gears from Florida to New York
Every time I see a rat on the platform I break out into a cold sweat while chills race up my spine and my stomach does summersaults. I have been run into, stepped on, squished and pushed. I have also had to step over the bodies of people who reside at various subway stops around the city; all for the sake of catching the J train to Fulton Street so I can transfer to the 2 train and again to the 1 train in efforts to get to work everyday.
My life wasn't quite like this last summer when I only had a 10-minute commute and worked 9-5 like a normal intern. This summer I get on the train by 11 p.m. in Brooklyn and to Manhattan by midnight for my shift. I was a little afraid the first night I walked to the train in the dark and the night I thought a strange man was following me but I quickly got over it.
I love working for a major news network. I enjoy knowing that I play a very important role in the production of ABC's early morning news. I must admit, I was never up early enough to catch "America This Morning" but I wake up with the anchors of "Good Morning America" daily. Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts made me feel like a part of the family when I was an intern for the network last summer.
It's a blessing to know I can look forward to going to a job I love everyday and get paid every other week. I am going to be responsible this year now that I know how to better manage my income. Last summer, I was hypnotized by the lights and the celebrities and fell into a trance of irresponsibility. I shopped every week (sometimes daily), ate out religiously, and often treated myself to dates, which consisted of shopping, eating, and a movie.
When I walk out of my brownstone apartment down the stoop onto the sidewalk I feel like I'm walking onto the set of my own movie. Everyday is another scene and I love it. Summers in New York are a nice vacation away from school. Although I miss the Florida weather at times, I find joy in knowing I can walk outside and not break out into a tsunami of perspiration.
Georgia Dawkins is a Sebring High School graduate, a senior at Florida A&M University and has recently been hired on ABC's 'Good Morning America.' She is a contributing columnist to the News-Sun.

Highlands County Republicans call premature endorsements 'improper'
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING � At its regular meeting on May 28, the Highlands County Republican Committee voted unanimously for a resolution that states that it is "improper" for state or national party leaders "to make or orchestrate endorsements" of candidates for statewide office prior to the primary.
The resolution requests that "members of State and/or National Republican Party leadership, who have endorsed and/or orchestrated the endorsement of any specific candidate for any statewide elected office, to immediately retract said endorsement and/or cease orchestrating said endorsement."
The move was sparked by the premature endorsement by state party chairman Jim Greer and others of Gov. Charlie Crist for the Senate
seat now held by retiring Sen. Mel Martinez when another viable candidate, former Speaker of the Florida House Marco Rubio, had also announced his candidacy for the Senate.
Party rules allow endorsement of a candidate before the primary only when the opposition candidates have minimal foundation or credentials. According to the resolution, "The open vacancy for U.S. Senate does not meet the criteria or the intent of the endorsement rules."
Several county organizations have passed similar resolutions and others are contemplating doing so.
Highlands County has in the past voted strongly Republican and played an important part in Congressman Tom Rooney's victory in the 7th district, one of the few seats to come back into Republican hands in the 2008 election cycle.

SoulBlues Drummers debut at Youth Academy
Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK - The SoulBlues Drummers make their debut at Avon Park Youth Academy at 5:15 p.m. Thursday. The percussion ensemble is made up of 13- to 17-year-old boys attending APYA, a Florida Juvenile Justice facility.
The children have completed the 12-week Primal Connection Troubled Teen Percussion Education Program and are ready and eager for their first public performance. They are the third group of teens who have completed the Primal Connection program designed to reach and empower children at risk.
The program takes advantage of a child's natural attraction to playing percussion instruments. This attraction crosses all cultural barriers and the low learning curve of percussion instruments enable at-risk-youth to experience the joy of making music with a high degree of success.
The program has proved effective at teaching the teamwork, discipline, musical skills, cooperation, cross-
cultural understanding, and commitment necessary to be part of a performing percussion ensemble. In the process the program builds self esteem and imparts valuable life lessons that lead the youth toward positive social behavior.
Fred Leavitt, executive director of Primal Connection, elaborates on the program, explaining that "Drumming encourages collaborative learning, discipline and teamwork; fosters diversity through exploration of other cultures; and provides the opportunity to communicate ideas and feelings. The children are motivated by their own success in a positive learning experience and take pride in their accomplishments as a team. This in turn provides confidence in their abilities to reach a constructive goal. This fundamental shift in their self image can change their lives in profoundly positive ways.
"In addition it has been established by the Presidents Council on Education (and a number of independent research studies) that children
involved in music programs improve in math, English, creative problem solving and social skills. This increase in academic performance further boosts the esteem of the children involved in the program.and opens new doors for them".
The teachers and staff of APYA have been surprised by the effectiveness � of the program's ability to reach and turn around children that have not responded to other programs. They are looking forward to expanding the program..
The Primal Connection Troubled Teen Program is funded by Children's Services Foundation of Highlands County, Walmart Local Store Grants, Guitar Center Music Foundation and contributions from local people and businesses.
For more information contact Fred Leavitt at 402-8238, e-mail him at fred@primalconnection.org or contact Pete Zeegers at APYA at 452-3815.

National summary: Drenching showers and rain as well as locally gusty thunderstorms will stretch along a slow- : moving cold front from the central Plains to southern New England today. The strangest storms are expected to be focused in the mid-Atlantic, where there can be damaging wind gusts, large hail and flash flooding. The front will divide cool air across the northern tier of states from summery conditions in much of the South. Spotty, but heavy thunderstorms will affect Florida and eastern Texas.

Red Devils tap DeSoto's Cornell as new head baseball coach
By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK - Though a new last name will be at the helm of Red Devil baseball for the first time- in more than 37 years, it won't be an entirely unfamiliar face taking over after the Jacksonian age of the Avon Park diamond.
Athletic Director Mort Jackson, having stepped down after his 22-year tenure filling out the Devil line-ups, announced officially on Monday that his replacement for the Red Devil baseball team would be DeSoto veteran skipper Whit Cornell.
Hailing from Arcadia, according to Jackson, Cornell is no stranger to Avon Park.
"He practically grew up here, and played some summer ball," Jackson said. "I think he is just what Avon Park needs right now."
After nine years at DeSoto, Cornell was quoted as saying that he is doing what is best for his family.
"I lived in Avon Park the first 11 years of my life," he said. "My grandmother lives there and my in-laws live there.
"They called me up and offered me the job and I accepted," he said. "They have a big baseball tradition."
A tradition that includes eight state championships and numerous playoff runs.
The Red Devils struggled, in light of that tradition, with a 3-11 season last year, but
'They called me up and offered me the job and I accepted. They have a big baseball tradition.'
WHIT CORNELL
New Avon Park head coach
the view is optimistic for the incoming coach.
Outgoing senior and FACA All-Star Kyle Jackson commented that the change would be a positive one for Avon Park.
"He was a good coach, from what I've heard. And he did well down there," he said. "I think he will be good for Avon Park."
Cornell, a 1993 DeSoto graduate, led the Bulldogs to the school's second district title in 2002 and helped them qualify for the regionals in 2005.
Cornell's overall record at DeSoto since taking the helm in 2001 is 140-110.
The past season, Cornell coached the Bulldogs baseball team to the semifinals in the District 10-4A and an overall record of 12-14.
"I don't' feel bad about leaving because the program is in good hands," Cornell said.
As it looks the Avon Park program will continue to be.

Quota changes make hunting more fair
Most hunters know that the best time to catch a monster buck off guard is during the beginning of hunting season.
That's why many of us enjoy hunting the archery and muzzleloading gun seasons - and why we can't miss opening weekend of the general gun season.
After that, lots of gunfire breaks out and those big boys get nocturnal, making hunting more difficult.
If you plan to hunt on public land next season, you've probably heard that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) made some changes to its quota permit system.
Phase I of the application process for most hunt types has been extended from a 10-day period to a month, and takes place June 1-30.
During this period, just like before, you may turn in only one worksheet for each type of quota hunt.
Remember: Unless exempt, you must have an up-to-date management area permit when applying for a quota permit.
The old archery/muzzle-loading worksheet has been broken into two separate worksheets - one for archery hunts and the other for muzzleloader hunts.
There is a new wild hog worksheet, as well as the familiar general gun worksheet.
So you now have the opportunity to receive four
Outta the Woods
Tony Young
permits instead of just two.
All quota permit worksheets are available at MyFWC.com/Hunting by clicking under "Limited. Entry Hunts" or at a tax collector's office or license agent.
As before, you may fill in your application with up to five hunt choices. � During phases I and II, you may be drawn for no more than one quota permit per hunt type.
During Phase III, you can submit additional worksheets and receive up to five quota permits per hunt type.
Submit completed worksheets to any license agent or tax collector's office.
Those with a valid Florida driver's license can submit worksheets online at
www.wildlifelicense.com/fl
The drawings to decide who gets these coveted quota hunt permits are July 7-17.
Results will be posted at MyFWC.com/Hunting. Those selected will receive quota permits in the mail.

East wraps up FACA finale
By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com SEBRING - For one of few times that anyone can remember, the East squad came out on top in the FACA All-Star Classic over the weekend at Firemen's Field with a 10-0 win over the South.
"That was the first time the East has won it since 1990," said event coordinator Travis Rapp. "Nick Franklin, who was named the team MVP, said they carried that around as their mantra all weekend, that they hadn't won it in so long."
What that means is that the Highlands County representation for one of the few times in the event's history were part of the championship team.
Cody Higgins of Sebring and Kyle Jackson of Avon Park each made their pres-

erice felt in Friday's win over a strong West squad, and they were part of the mix again in Saturday's domination of the South with each drawing a walk and scoring in a four-run second inning that set the tone for the game.
Jackson contributed with a couple fine plays on hot grounders at first and Higgins pitched a scoreless final inning to wrap up the weekend.
"It's a real cool experi-
ence," Higgins said. "I've come and watched it for years and helped out since I've been on the high school team so I thought I was kind of used to it. But now being here, being a part of it with the other players, it's more than I expected."
Playing with and against the state's top talent was one aspect that brought up their level of play.
"You just have to," Jackson said. "You're playing with the best and against the best, you've really got to step it up and show you belong here."
Playing in front of professional scouts was another aspect, but it's because those scouts were there that all the players took their swings with wooden bats all weekend, rather than the aluminum bats they've pret-

It was an epic battle that was full of twists and turns before lightning ended the game between the two teams in their last game of the season.

Busy, memorable weekend
for Highlands All-stars
Continued from IB
ty much been using all their lives.
"I think it just makes you concentrate that much more," Jackson said. "With the aluminum, you've got a much bigger area that you can hit it with and still hit it good. With the wood, it's a much smaller area and you have to really concentrate and focus on where you make contact."
It was an exciting and busy weekend overall for Jackson, Higgins and Lake Placid's Perry Mason - who played for the North team due to a need for pitching - as each also had their high school graduations.
Jackson received his diploma on the field from Avon Park principal Stu Guthrie Friday night while Higgins went through Sebring's ceremony early Saturday, before quickly getting out of his gown and into his uniform.
"I'm glad it worked out the way it did," Higgins said of the timing. "If I'd have had to make a choice, I'm not sure what I would have done."
Mason, who pitched two-plus innings Friday night, wasn't slated to pitch Saturday as his North squad fell to the West team, 4-3, so he stayed in Lake Placid to take part in his graduation ceremony.
But aside from the great experience, Mason drew some added attention and gained some confidence.
"The coach from the University of North Florida talked to me after the game (Friday)," Mason said. "But I'm committing to Lipscomb in Nashville. Their not offering a scholarship, but I'm a preferred walk-on, which basically means I'll be on the team. Hopefully I can earn some scholarship money by sophomore year."
Jackson and Higgins will be teaming up for the South Florida Panthers next season, so all three will be continuing their baseball pursuits, with one great weekend to look back upon that capped their high school careers.

News-Sun photos by DAN HOEHNE Jackson and Higgins each make solid contact Saturday in the FACA finale between the East and South squads. Neither collected a base-hit, but both drew walks and scored runs in the East*s four-run second inning of their 10-0 tide game win.
Short-handed, L&C puts up a fight
Continued from IB
again ended it, literally, early lightning off the Air-Conditioning bats set the tone.
Long's was able out jump out front 7-0 by the fourth with a steady attack and behind the pitching of Kenny Mcgrath and Trevor Manning.
"I felt good out there. All I could think about was 'how could 1 pitch better'. I just wanted to pitch better every throw," Manning said after the game.
As the weather began to threaten, L&C Dairy rallied back when McGrath, - yes
Kenny McGrath, L&C was short a player and Long's decided to loan a center fielder every inning to their opponents - capped the top of the fourth with a center-field snag.
L&C took the opportunity to swing away, bringing the score to 7-6 before the inning was out, and putting them in scoring position until Manning pitched his way out of a tough spot.
Long's didn't waste anytime, and a Matt Jolin single started the counter-rally that led them to ,the 11-6 victory before the actual lightning
came and the game was called.
"I was proud of the kids and their play this season," said Long's head coach Sam McGrath. "They played hard, but we had fun. The wins and loses were not a big deal, it was the play that was important."
Although the regular season is over for both teams, Kenny McGrath from Long's and Kaje McHargue from L&C Dairy were picked to join the All-star tournament team and jumped right back into practice.
Changes in hunting quotas
Continued from IB
Others get a preference point for next year's drawing, which improves the . chance of being selected.
If you're unable to use your quota permit, mail it back to Tallahassee so it can be reissued to someone else during Phase 111. If it was issued in Phase I and it's postmarked prior to the first day of the hunt, you'll receive a preference point.
Accumulated preference points under the old system apply to the new system.
Except for the Blackwater Wildlife Management Area (WMA) dog hunts and Hoi ton Creek WMA mobility-impaired hunts, all quota permits are nontransferable.
Only the person named on the permit can use it.
This change makes the quota system fairer by spreading great hunting �opportunities out to more folks.
If you gave up on applying for quota hunts because you never drew the area
you wanted, 1 urge you to try it this year.
There's a new guest permit also.
To many folks and me it's more fun to go hunting with a buddy, so the FWC created a way for people to bring a friend on a quota hunt.
For every quota permit (excluding Blackwater WMA dog hunts and Holton Creek WMA mobility-impaired hunts), one nontransferable guest permit may be obtained, until the last day of the hunt, at tax collectors' offices or license agents; use the quota permit holder's customer ID number and hunt number.
The guest must have a valid management area permit (unless exempt) and all other necessary permits and license for the specific hunt.
Some stipulations'. Both permit holder and guest must enter and exit the WMA together, share the same vehicle and share a
single person's bag limit.
The guest may hunt only when the quota permit holder is on the area.
On WMAs that have zone tags, the permit holder and guest must hunt in the same zone.
On 37 of the WMAs, there's a bag limit of one deer, so I suggest you and your guest set your cell phones on vibrate and text your buddy when you shoot a deer.
That way, he'll know you've filled the bag limit.
In. places without a signal, you could use inexpensive two-way radios to let each other know you got one.
If you'd like to apply for one or more of the FWC's many fall quota hunt permits, you need to do so in June.
Tony Young is the media relations coordinator for the FWC's Division of Hunting and Game Management. You can reach him with questions about quota permits or how to apply at Tony Young@MyFWC. com.

> At Dover, there isn't much incentive for struggling teams to exit early, take the money and run. There's no way for the transporters to get out of the infield.
>The world seems sharply divided between those who can't get enough about Dale Earnhardt Jr. and those who say his story is being beaten to death.
> It appeared that, following the late-race incident between him and teammate Kyle Busch during the Nationwide Series race at Dover, Joey Logano made use of sunglasses to hide the fact that he was weeping. He's probably being paid to wear them, too, of course. At the very least, he seemed forlorn and emotional, particularly for an incident that didn't really seem to be his fault.

crew chief, Chad Knaus. "That's been our mindset ever since 2002." Johnson led 298 out of 400 laps. The only reason he was in comeback mode at the end was a less-than-perfect pit stop. He would've been sixth, no matter what, once Knaus opted to change four tires, but a minor pit-road penalty cost him two additional spots. Johnson's superiority was unquestioned, but his ability to regain the lead was. While Stewart and the eventual third-place finisher, Greg Biffle, were dueling up front, Johnson's Chevrolet was slicing, knife-like, through the butter of the cars separating him from the lead.

Hornish Jr. adjusting to NASCAR after Indy success
-By Monte Dutton
NASCAR This Week
DOVER, Del. - Sam Hornish Jr. is getting the hang of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
Hornish, from Defiance, Ohio, has quite the impressive resume. He is a former winner of the Indianapolis 500 and a three-time IndyCar champion. When he struggled in NASCAR, many ' observers anticipated that he might return to the open-wheel ranks, but the challenge of adapting to stock cars appealed to Hornish.
Though he was runner-up in the Raybestos Rookie of the Year race -� to Regan Smith � Hornish was only 35th in the final standings. He has stuck with the NASCAR experiment,
and recently his performances have notably improved. He finished ninth at Phoenix, sixth at Richmond, 16th at Charlotte and 13th in Dover's Autism Speaks 400.
Falling from the spotlight in NASCAR didn't faze Hornish.
"I've never really considered myself somebody that needed a bunch of attention," he said. "To be able to sit back and watch what other people are doing, and not have all the pressure on you all the time was good. It enabled me sometimes to learn a little bit more and also be able to kind of fly under the radar and to be able to make my way in and out of certain areas,
"The better you do, the more consistently that you're in the top 15, the top 10, you're going to get more and
more attention. Obviously, I want that because it means we're running well, but as far as needing it, keeping the sponsor (Mobil 1) happy is the first thing, and then also keeping myself happy as far as how we do on the race track are the two most important things."
Part of Hornish's transition has involved adapting to NASCAR's longer races.
"I had all that experience running the Indy cars," he said, "and a lot of times I consider those sprint races because they're 200 laps or 200 miles. Everything that we run over here is 400 or 500 laps, or 400 or 500 miles. Sometimes it's a matter of pacing yourself to get to the end with all the fenders intact."
FEUD OF THE WEEK
Kyle Busch
Earnhardt Jr.
Kyle Busch vs. Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Busch was only too happy to discuss the crew-chief change at his rival's team. "If Junior has a problem, then he (Lance McGrew, the interim choice) is going to be in trouble," said Busch. "When there's a problem, it never seems to be Junior's. fault." Earnhardt Jr.'s response: "It doesn't really surprise me what Kyle (Busch) says. He's always had a chip on his shoulder for me. I expect, any time he gets an opportunity to throw a jab in there, he's going to do it. That's just his personality."
NASCAR This Week's Monte Dutton gives his take: "If you think Kyle Busch doesn't take pleasure in outperforming the driver who replaced him at Hendrick Motorsports, think again."

Earnhardt Jr. regrets that Eury move had to happen
By Monte Dutton
NASCAR This Week
DOVER, Del. � It's not easy to split with your first cousin, even when it's not a matter of a driver and crew chief.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. is a bit wistful at the dismissal of Tony Eury Jr. as his crew chief.
"I didn't anticipate that it was coming," said Earnhardt. "We couldn't work toward fixing our situation over the last couple weeks if we were anticipating a split between me and Tony (Eury) Jr., so we were working with a positive attitude that we could turn it
f3MB0l�p!
around. I said before that me and Tony (Eury) Jr. had both been honest with Rick (Hendrick) about making changes if that heeded to happen and just tell us whatever we needed to do and we would do it.
"I'd always enjoyed working with Tony (Eury) Jr. and even, really, up to the very last minute, that had been my preference, and my real goal from the start was for me and him to have success together and for me and him to share in success together."
But times change.
Friendly advice � Earnhardt's teammate, Jeff Gordon, said the everyone, even a four-time champion, goes through the occasional crisis of confidence.
"I've dealt with it numerous times throughout my career," he said. "Even when your confidence gets broken down, you've got to go back to the basics. You've got to go back to, you know what, I've gotten here for a reason. I've won races for a reason. It wasn't just because the car was the best car.
"Your input plays a role, and so you just get back to those
basics and hold onto that knowledge and recapture some of that confidence that has gotten you where you are, and then build on that."
Breakthroughs � Over the past five races, Brad Keselowski and David Reutimann have joined the ranks of Sprint Cup winners, but that's not the whole story.
Keselowski's Talladega victory also marked the first Cup victory for owner James Finch and crew chief Marc Reno. Re-utimann's marked career firsts
for Michael Waltrip as an owner and Rodney Childers as a crew chief.
It's not as good � Greg Biffle thinks the quality of competition in the Nationwide Series is in decline.
NASCAR has mandated engine changes (the so-called "tapered spacer") to limit horsepower and make the engines more durable.
"The racing isn't as good with the (so-called) tapered spacers," said Biffle. "We don't have the power to do that."

Officials expect new safety belt enforcement provisions to save lives
Special to the News-Sun
TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and the Florida Department of Transportation have joined together to commend the Florida Legislature for passing Senate Bill 344, the "Don Slosberg and Katie Marchetti Safety Belt Law."
The new law. allows for .the primary enforcement of Florida's safety belt requirements, which the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates will prevent 142 fatalities in Florida annually. The law will take effect June 30. According to a 2008 NHTSA study, states with primary enforcement laws rank in the top five for safety belt usage while Florida ranks 35th in the nation.
DHSMV Executive Director Eiectra Theodorides-Bustle and DOT Secretary-Stephanie Kopelousos applaud the leadership of Senator Nan Rich, Representative Rich Glorioso, and Governor Charlie Crist in supporting and passing this important initiative. "The passage of this law is a testament to the willpower and dedication of many working together to make highway safety a priority. The Department' of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is committed to keeping our highways safe and leading the way to A Safer
Florida," Theodorides-Bustle said.
Added Kopelousos, "The perseverance of former Representative Irv Slosberg and the Marchettis turned personal tragedy into a life saving initiative. Safety is the number one priority of the Florida Department of Transportation. We know this new law will save lives and reduce serious injuries on our roadways."
Director of the Florida Highway Patrol Col. John Czemis echoed their support stating, "Very simply, safety belts save lives. This legislation will allow law enforcement officers throughout our state to treat a safety belt violation as they would any other violation. We are committed to modifying motorist behavior to ensure that they buckle up."
The passage of SB 344 is particularly time-ly since the Click It or Ticket campaign kicks off in May. Click It or Ticket is a national education and enforcement campaign effort designed to raise awareness of the importance of wearing a safety belt, and is one of the most successful safety belt programs offered. State and local law enforcement agencies and safety advocate groups throughout Florida will team up to bring the important safety campaign to Floridians.

Recreation Club
By Chapman Chamber/in ~
SEBRING - Summer is around the corner and May is gone with very few love bugs this spring so far. Some rain has come our way and we still need much more. Line dancing is still in line with the beat that goes on. We dance year 'round at the Recreation Club.
Ralph and Marcia Rhote.n, ping-pong players, are still playing table tennis but have now added shuffleboard to their schedule. Not only have they added shuffleboard but also they had their daughter, Sharon, with them the last couple of times at the club.
Joe and Lisa LaCotti took time from their home project to join us in shuffleboard. Shuffleboard , found four courts Wednesday evening. Betty Rizor, Nancy Brockelbank. Marcia and Sharon Rhoten and Anna Eldridge were the women that brightened up a dark rainy evening.
Zumba is still the best party in town and the youngest club members we have. It is hard to say much about them except they are growing in number, not in weight. A party...how can one go wrong by attending? The party starts Tuesday from 5:30-6:30 p.m, and again on Thursday from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Shuffleboard Saturday evening is pin shuffle and if you have never tried this, you lose. For the ladies we had guest Esther Bryson, Nancy Brockelbank, \ Sharon Rohman, Anna Eldridge,
Marilyn Wile and Winnie Wells. For men we had John Bushee, Wally Davis, Don Rohman, George Brockelbank, Carl Wile and Bill Gorsuch.
A note from Jim and Joan Mondry saying that they are in Wisconsin and the.ir trip home was not one they would like to do over. The weather was against them for the entire trip, but they made it safe and sound. Lowell Jones said it is getting warmer. He also went to the doctor and he does not need surgery at this time.
Charlie Frey got his first Hole-in-One on the fifth hole on Memorial Day. This will be remembered by him for some time. Shufflers are very nice people that would like to meet other nice people. If we want shuffleboard to grow in Sebring, it will take a little effort on all of us to make this happen. If we put nothing into it, we shall not reap many good returns. Ask us questions or come see for yourself all that we offer and do.
Tropical Harbor
ByBarbara Kelleher
LAKE PLACID Memorial Day, May 25 - The clubhouse was quite full even though many have departed for their homes in the north. Our coffee hosts were Luann Steffen and her husband, James, and Mary sue Willeke and her husband, Derek. They both purchased a delicious assortment of doughnuts for all to enjoy in honor of their wedding anniversaries.
Our emcee was Duane Dean. Jim Witten told the story of the symbol of our freedom and it was always a part of our heritage from our first president's time. When we see the flag blowing in the wind high upon a?flag pole or see smaller ones placed on graves throughout our nation, we are proud to say we are Americans and may God continue to protect and love us. Duane then read the names of 30 residents who have passed away over the 12 months of Memorial Day in 2008 to the present Memorial Day. Some had moved back home with their families, others were in assisted living facilities or hospitals, some in their home in Tropical Harbor. As Duane read off the names, tears came to many of the residents' eyes since their passing away brought back many memories of relatives and friends who were our neighbors. God bless them all.
Park manager George Susco asked the residents who are here to please turn off their automatic sprinklers. We have been having rain almost every day now and too much soaking of the lawn can damage grass as well. He also told the residents that the chance to side your homes has been extended and the park will pay $2,500 towards upgrading your home. If you are going to have company over the summer, please get a "guest" pass from Lynn at the office. Before leaving he wished everyone to take the time to reflect and enjoy the Memorial Day holiday.
Sunshine lady Carol Noel
told the group that Shirley Woodruff is home from the hospital and Helen Coppock is now home and she sent a thank you note that Carol read thanking everyone for their cards and prayers and meals when she came home.
The piano was played for all to wish James and Luann Steffen and Derek and Marysue Willeke a happy anniversary.
Tony Barriga gave the command for all who served in the military to stand. First were the Air Force, then the Army, next to those who served in the Coast Guard, the U.S. Marines of which we have one woman and last the Navy. All stood at attention and followed Tony out the door for all to gather around the flag pole to raise the American flag. Tony had patriotic music playing as the flag was unfolded and raised on the flag pole. It was a beautiful ceremony.
At 4 p.m. all of the residents were invited back to the clubhouse where the special events group served hot dogs and hamburgers right off the grill and the residents brought various picnic type foods to enjoy. We had more than 120 attend the afternoon program.
Tuesday, May 26, we had Ladies Day Coffee. Marilyn Cromer presided over the meeting. Carol Noel made the coffee. Carol reported the following people on the sick list: . Harry Krebs is back in the hospital; Shirley Woodruff is home and so is Helen Coppock; Bill Monahan, a former resident of Tropical Harbor but has been living at
the Palms, passed away.
Fran Buero announced that the Ladies Day Out will be June 16 at the Blue Crab Restaurant. Marilyn read the names of people celebrating their birthday and we were happy to siruj Happy Birthday to Shirley Landon, who was with us for the Ladies Coffee.
Before ending the meeting, Arlene Clouston read a little story about "Maybe You Had Other Plans," which tells you your plans can always be positive or negative, it's all, up to the individual. Speaking of
Arlene and Robert Clouston, they are the proud grandparents of Chantel White, who is an archaeologist studying at Boston University. She is now in Ethiopia and has just been told that she is the recipient of a $10,000 grant from the Cora Du Bdes Fellowship from Harvard University.
Barbara and George Kelleher enjoyed having their two great-grandchildren, Chloe and Terryn Horton from Belle Glade. They enjoyed the Memorial Day flag raising ceremony.

Henderson to speak to LP Historical Society
Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID - The Lake Placid Depot Museum will be the background for the reminiscence of Roy Henderson, son of pioneers L.L. Henderson and Sally Henderson, as he addresses the audience on Sunday.
Beginning with a "Cup Auction" at 2:30 p.m., the members and friends of the Historical Society will enjoy tales by Roy. Born in Lake Placid in 1921, Roy remembers the wilderness that was Lake Placid in those days. He recalls walking to his home on Lake Mirror after dark, often with water over the road and unknown critters behind every bush.
He and his wife Ruth live part of the year here and part of the year in Northern Alabama. He has a great story to tell. Gather up a white elephant gift to add to the cup auction and come on out.
Remember, Society dues are due July 1 and may be paid at this meeting.

Rotary Group Study Exchange team from Denmark visits Avon Park
Special to the News-Sun AVON PARK - The Rotary Foundation's Group Study Exchange (GSE) program is a unique cultural and vocational exchange opportunity for businesspeople and professionals between the ages of 25 and 40 who are in the early stages of their careers'.
The program provides travel grants for teams to exchange visits in paired areas of different countries. For four to six weeks, team members experience the host country's culture and institutions, observe how their vocations are practiced abroad, develop personal and professional relationships and exchange ideas.
During a 20-minute grogram presented at the last meeting of the Avon Park Rotary Club, each member shared a bit of information about their profession as well as information about their home land. For example,
local Rotarians found it interesting that in Denmark, Danish citizens are accustomed to paying 60 percent income tax and 25% percent sales tax. Correspondingly, salaries are higher per capita than in the U.S.
This program is sponsored by Rotary International. The Danish team was made up of a team leader who is a Rotarian, and three non Rotarians. The team was made up of one engineer, two accountants and one school headmaster.
The Avon Park Rotary Club meets every Wednesday at 12:15 pm at The Rotary Building, 20 South Verona Ave. Rotarians plan and carry out a remarkable variety of humanitarian, educational, and culture exchange programs that touch people's lives in their local communities and our world community.

Battling the
fat bulge
belly
Metro Servit'es
Sixty-three percent of adults 20 years of age and older are obese in the United States according to statistics by the National Center for Health Statistics, and 127 million people are considered overweight. While excess weight can cause a host of detrimental health effects, there is particular concern about the fat that congregates around the midsection, called belly fat.
It's not just the fat that you can see or grab at that is the problem. Visceral fat, or the fat that forms between organs, is very problematic. That is why it is important to learn about belly fat and come up with a program to reduce it.
The skinny on belly fat
Belly fat has been linked to an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke and other life-threatening conditions. Individuals with belly fat are twice as likely to die prematurely as people without it. Plus, a-'person doesn't have to be overweight to have belly fat and be at risk.
Belly fat is caused by a combination of factors, including heredity, personal diet, lifestyle, and a slowing metabolism that comes with aging.
A comprehensive 10-year European study discovered certain statistics:
� A man with a waist of 40 inches or more, and a woman with 35 inches or more were most at risk of belly-fat induced premature death.
� Each 2-inch increase in waist cir-
Top 10 ways to help protect your kidneys
cumference was associated with a 17 percent increase in mortality in men and a 13 percent increase in women.
� Waist-to-hip ratio is also a factor. A waist-to-hip ratio of greater than 0.9 for men and 0.8 for women is generally considered high risk.
Conquering belly fat
It may seem like reducing belly fat would be a challenge. However, healthcare experts report that visceral body fat actually responds very well to a regular exercise routine and healthy diet. Here are some steps to reduce belly fat.
� Strength training: Strength training can burn more calories than aerobic exercise alone and may foster faster burning of fat, including belly fat. Exercises that target the abdomen can help strengthen those muscles and promote a flatter-looking stomach when the
fat starts to melt away.
� Healthy diet: Read food labels and take the steps to make healthier choices in foods. Replace saturated fats with unsaturated fats. You won't just see' results with belly fat � you'll be healthier overall, too.
� Consider supplementation: The Mega-T Green Tea Fat Burning Supplement can assist with weight loss goals by burning belly fat, curbing appetite and stimulating metabolism. The product is available at leading drug, food and mass retailers nationally. For more information, visit www.MegaT bellyfat.com.
A healthy diet, exercise and a natural dietary supplement could be your ticket to reduced belly fat. Before starting any diet or exercise program, it pays to talk to your doctor and discuss what would be healthy for your particular situation.

Dear Pharmacist:
I've had diabetes for 12 years and now I have kidney disease. My doctor just prescribed lisinopril. I'm concerned that there is more I should be doing. What else should I consider?
- L.V., Los Angeles Answer: The kidneys continuously filter your blood to strain out waste products. Without functional kidneys we would die within minutes. Many, people, including non-diabetics, have the beginnings of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and don't even realize it.
For example, fatigue, itchy skin, ankle swelling, puffy face, back pain, brain fog and any change in urination including frequency, urgency, volume, or color changes could indicate trouble. You could easily be misdiagnosed, so see a kidney specialist (nephrologist) at least annually, but especially if you have these symptoms.
Here is my top 10 list to protect your precious kidneys:
1. Bring blood sugar down. A reduction of "hemoglobin Ale" from 7 percent to 6.4 percent reduces your risk of kidney disease, eye damage and nerve pain by up to 25 percent.
2. Eat a low-fat, low-protein diet rich in fresh, organic fruits and vegetables along with healthy nuts and seeds.
3. Avoid regular table salt and salt substitutes because they may cause water retention or ruin your mineral balance. Sea salt is healthier.
4. Medications such as ACE inhibitors (lisinopril, enalapril or Altace) can protect the kidneys, lower blood pressure, and reduce protein spillage. Side effects include dry cough, headache, elevated potassium levels and weird changes in taste. Newer medications such as Diovan, Cozaar, Avapro or Atacand can achieve similar benefits with fewer side effects.
5. L-carnitine is an amino acid found Li all your cells. Supplements may improve symptoms of heart failure or angina, which can occur in people with kidney failure. When your kidneys tire out, supplemental forms may
Dear Pharmacist
Suzy Cohen
become useful. Dosage varies and is based on your individual kidney function so ask your doctor.
6. Horsetail or Equisetum arvense: This 'diuretic' herb helps your, kidneys filter the blood while providing silica to help strengthen hair, bones and organ tissue. You can drink tea or take supplements but ask your doctor first because diuretics usually enhance the side effects of medications.
7. Thiamine (vitamin Bl) - It's.not typically considered a kidney-loving vitamin but 'cutting edge' is my middle name. This natural nutrient was just shown to have dramatic effects on the body's ability to excrete albumin and reverse early-stage kidney disease in some type 2 diabetics.
8. Antioxidants such as resveratrol, astaxanthin, ubiquinol (CoQIO) and vitamin E may protect kidney cells against free-radical damage.
9. Pau D'Arco - which is an herb from the Amazon rainforest touted for its ability to boost red blood cell production and improve oxygen flow. Supplements may have a blood-thinning effect.
10. The sun - it allows you to make vitamin D, which helps diabetics improve blood sugar control, wound healing and kidney function.

The current economic cri sis has done a great deal to increase stress across the . country.
From average folks worrying about their next paycheck, to top financial executives worrying about their next bailout, our current economic problems have most of us feeling more anxious.
Unfortunately, many people react to high stress levels by turning more to something we all find comforting food. It's called "stress eating" because it feeds an emotional rather than a physical hunger.
We do it because food, especially sweet things, trigger emotional and chemical reactions i'n our bodies that do make us feel better, though only for a sort time (then it's time for another snack).
Stress eating is a problem because it's one of the most common sources of excessive weight gain, something that can directly impact our self-image and health.
So instead of reaching for that donut the next time the stock market is tumbling, look for alternative ways to handle the stress.
Start by being more aware of what's triggering your eating. Are you snacking because you're physically hungry, or simply because you're stressed or bored or unhappy?
If it's emotions that have you eating, try to find activities besides eating that can help calm you.
Exercise, for example, can be very effective. From gym workouts to quick walks around the block, exercise
The Counseling Corner
The American Counseling Association
boosts the action of feelgood neurotransmitters in your body. Plus it burns calories and actually makes you physically healthier.
Other stress busters, like reading a book or listening to music or calling a friend, can also be alternatives to food you don't really need. But if you really can't survive without a snack, make it one that's good for you.
Foods high in sugar and calories may quickly elevate good feelings, but also lead to a sharp emotional crash as sugar levels drop. Fight that with a piece of fruit instead of a donut.
Try snacking on veggie sticks with low calorie dressing. Have them handy for when hunger strikes. And, instead of that high sugar, high calorie soda or energy drink, have a glass of water.
Eating in response to stress is a common problem, but one that's fixable. Think about why you're eating and what you could do instead to help you feel calmer and more relaxed without resorting to food.
Sometimes just being more aware of stresys eating can do a great deal? to minimize the problem.
'The Counseling Corner' is provided as a public service by the American Counseling Association, the nation's largest organization of counseling professionals. Learn more about the counseling profession at the ACA website, www.counseling.org.
Couple's love life reawakens long after the kids are grown
Dear Abby: After my wife had our sixth child, our love life fizzled out. But at age 80, we have suddenly discovered that we aren't that old!
How do we tactfully deflect kids and grandkids who enter without ringing the bell? I realize that lots of people would love to have this problem, but it's a problem all the same.
- Back in the Saddle Again
Dear Back in the Saddle: Your letter made me smile. I'm pleased to hear there's still plenty of "hi-ho" in the old Silver.
If you haven't told your children and grandchildren that you would prefer they not enter your home without ringing the bell, my first suggestion is to speak up now. If you have, and your request is being ignored, then I have two more suggestions.
The first is to put a chain or double lock on the doors to your house; the second is
to hang a "Please Do Not Disturb, the Old Folks Are Napping" sign on your doors when you're feeling amorous. I'll bet you $20 that because of entrenched misconceptions about sexuality in the over-70 genera- . tion, none of your children or grandchildren will- question it.
Dear Abby: Boy, do I need yOur opinion. My wife's youngest daughter has moved in with us, along with her three children: ages 3,4 and 5. We are having a disagreement about allowing the kids up on the counter-tops.
My wife and her daughter think it's fine for them to pull a chair over and hop up on the counter. I have seen them on both sides of a stove full of pots filled with hot food. Because this has been allowed, the kids constantly crawl up to the cabinets to help themselves to treats and other things.
I have told them both
countless times that this is the worst habit I have ever seen taught to children. I feel it's extremely dangerous and a bad idea. Please help me win this battle, or if you think it's fine, shut me up for good.
- Grandpa
Dennis Dear Grandpa Dennis:
I'm on your side. Allowing a child to climb up on a counter is inviting an accident -and to allow a child to do so when the counter is adjacent to a hot stove is child endan-germent.
Your wife and her daughter are being far too permissive. Children that young should ask for treats, not be allowed to forage. Rules have to be set and enforced. What is to stop those children from dragging a chair up to a bathroom medicine cabinet and helping themselves to the pills?
Dear Abby
Dear Abby: I am
a single, independent, educated 26-year-old female. I recently bought my first house and enjoy living alone. My problem is, whenever I run into someone I haven't seen in a while and they learn where I am living, often the first thing he or she asks is, "Oh, you got married?"
I find it offensive that people automatically assume that because I bought a house I am married. How do I deal with a question like that and not hurt feelings in the process?
- Content in Virginia Dear Content: You deal with it by not becoming defensive. Keep your sense of humor. The next time yOu are asked if you got married, smile at the person and say, "Did you get an invitation to the wedding?" When the person tells you no, end the discussion by saying, "Well,
then, I guess I'm not married!"

Moms and kids can make Father's Day exciting this year by making Dad some great tasting treats from the heart. Not only will it keep spending in check, the results will taste delicious and kids will have fun being part of the action. Start by serving Dad breakfast in bed. Try a Kiwifruit Potassium Power Smoothie, an all-natural smoothie that is a meal in itself. Kids can personalize the breakfast by peeling and cutting kiwifruit into stars, hearts and other fun shapes to add to the smoothie. (Kiwifruit shapes can also top pancakes or cereal.)
Later in the day, older kids can be Dad's helper at the grill. Try sweet and juicy fruit skewers along with Curried Turkey Sliders With Chutney � the tropical flavor of the kebabs and the tangy curry of the sliders make the perfect taste combination that will make Dad feel really special.
Fresh fruit also perks up cocktails and mocktails. A Green Kiwifruit Vesper cocktail or mocktail is just the thing to finish off an unforgettable Father's Day.
Quick tips on cooking with kiwifruit
� Green kiwifruit is a natural meat tenderizer. Simply peel and mash a kiwifruit and spread it on a cut of meat. Let stand for 10 to 15 min- � utes and then lightly scrape off the kiwifruit before cooking.
� Look for plump and smooth-skinned kiwifruit with no wrinkles, bruises or punctures. Ripe green and gold kiwifruit will keep at room temperature for a few days. Keep them in a plastic bag in the refrigerator to store longer.
� To speed up the ripening process, put kiwifruit in a brown bag with an apple or banana and leave on your kitchen counter.;
