By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.comi
SEBRING Board
Chairwoman Barbara
Stewart stated that the
county had to look at
everything during the
upcoming budget season,
including raising taxes
and cutting salaries.
'I am seriously con-
cerned with the budget.
$11 million used from the
reserve fund last year is
not there this year."
Stewart said.
"Traditionally, consti-
tutional officers return
some funds, and tradition-
Sally we have
about $2 mil-

"That does

said.
Stewart pointed out
that the county was facing
about an $11 million
deficit this year again at
current expense levels,
and that the reserves were
not going to be there like
the previous years.
"How are we gonna
plug the hole?" Stewart
asked.
Stewart further pointed
out that the commission-
ers needed to consider all
of the options available to
the county to balance the
budget, and needed to
evaluate the job positions,
raising taxes and cutting
nonessential services.

Approximately 40 restaurants made the Humane Society's 'Taste of Highlands County' fund
raiser a success Sunday at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agriculture Center. Hundreds of people
turned out to try everything from raw oysters to pork loin and scalloped potatoes to choco-
late cake and key lime pie.

the shelter. The money will
help us jump start the clinic,"
Spiegel said, "by making it
possible to order the supplies
and medications we need."
As excited as she was
about the future, Spiegel was
just as thrilled with the
fundraiser itself. Ann Smith,
who spent a year organizing
the event, was thrilled as
well.
Forty restaurants took part,
either donating gift certifi-
cates or preparing specialties
at no cost to the Humane
Society.
"These restaurants are real
pillars of the community,"
Smith said Tuesday morning.
"They were absolutely
amazing," agreed Spiegel.
"Everything was donated."
The menu was staggering
- from steamed shrimp and
raw oysters, courtesy of the
Blue Lagoon Saloon; to alli-
gator tail and chicken wings
from the Wild Turkey; to
pulled pork eggrolls from
Cowboys; to meatball subs
from Simply Trish; to vari-
eties of pork tenderloin
(served separately) from The
Palms and Spring Lake Golf
Restaurant; to clam chowder,
barbecue bacon wrapped
shrimp, and seafood Alfredo
from the Blue Crab; to chick-
en and dumplings from
Charlie's; to pizza from
Duffers; to Mexican special-
ties from Mi Rancho and
that is not a complete list.

At the Blue Crab booth, Desiree Haehle (right) helped
serve sea food alfredo, clam chowder, and barbecued
shrimp wrapped in bacon. And that was only one choice out
of dozens at the Humane Society's fund raiser Sunday.


Sonny's, Ruby Tuesday, I-
Hop, Chilis, the Village Inn,
Dunkin' Donuts and the Bella
Vista Italian Restaurant were
there as well.
For dessert there were
cakes from the Golden
Corral, keylime pie and
chocolate madness from
Jaxsons, and cupcakes from
Cupcake Royale.
Coca-Cola provided the
beverages.
Those who came to eat
were just as pleased as those
who created the event.
"Wait until you see what
they have, it's unbelievable,
unbelievable," a woman was
overheard saying to a friend
who had just arrived. "Just go
in and grab a plate."
"The chicken and


dumplings from Charlie's
and the Alfredo from Bella
Vista," said Eileen Smith,
when asked which foods
were her favorites.
"The turkey wrap," said
Larry Price, "but I'm not fin-
ished yet."
"The raspberry crepes are
fabulous," said Dotti Bade,
referring to I-Hop's contribu-
tion.
"This was a common cause
for the whole county," Smith
said, "those who prepared the
food and those who bought
tickets. We all came together.
Isn't that something!"
She is already planning for
next year.

ed, if that's the word to use -
for eight years now?
Or that April is Counseling
Awareness Month and March
Autism Awareness Month?
Or that November is
National Peanut Butter Lovers
Month?
It seems that not a month
goes by, but some organization,
condition or cause, or several
at once, receives special atten-
tion.
We understand the need to
educate people and bring atten-
tion to important issues or wor-
thy causes, but we worry that
there are so many special
months, the real information
and need for action get lost in
the noise.
Cancer, for example, is
something that should be on
our minds all year long, espe-
cially the issues about the cost
of care, coming up with new
treatments, and preventing the
disease in the first place.


February is Black His,',,,
Month.

with the same old stories trun-
dled out, about the same small
group of individuals.
Too many school districts do
not weave the black experience
into American history on a
daily basis exactly because
there is this special month. It
makes ignoring the tough
issues easier the rest of the
year.
We also question the typical
content of Black History
Month.
The glowing, feel-good tales
of athletes, artists, scientists
and statesmen, are useful as
examples for younger students,
but lack academic rigor or
moral courage and fail to chal-
lenge pre-conceived ideas.
Where are the deeper dis-
cussions, for example? The

We hope we have evolved as
a society to the point where
American history can be taught
holistically weaving all the
various threads into the tapes-
try that is our nation.
We need to understand why
slavery, which betrayed our
bedrock values right from the
beginning, was allowed to
stand and took so long to over-
come.
We need to study why
George Washington ultimately
freed his slaves, and Thomas
Jefferson did not.
We need to study the warped
logic that allowed a constitu-
tional amendment claiming a
slave was only 3/5 of a man.
We need to learn about the
kind of hatred that led to lynch-
ings just as we need to learn
about the hate that excluded
Jews from much of society, or
why German, Irish, and Italian
immigrants, just to name three
examples, were so vilified

In a world where events
across the world do have a
direct impact on us, we need to
understand how the nations of
the world relate to each other,
as well as the historical back-
ground that created those com-
plicated relationships.
All of us, for example, need
to learn there are 47 countries
in sub-Saharan Africa, 50
nations in Europe, 12 in South
America and 32 in Asia and
no two are identical.
In other words, we need to
learn more about our shared
pasts and the world we live in
than can be taught in any one'
month.
Just as Christians should
think of Christ every day, not
just at Christmas or Easter, we
need to be thinking every day
about how we've gotten to
where we are. It is the only
way we can find our way into
the future.

McCollum Stage to be
dedicated this week
Editor:
I would really like to thank
Highlands Little Theatre, the cast and
crews of each play for all their hard
work and talents. they are sure a credit
to the theatre as well as the community.
The last play, "Harvey," had me
looking for that big white rabbit for a
week.
Feb. 4 the theatre will be dedicating
the new "McCollum Stage" in the
Thakkar Pavilion. The newly construct-
ed stage will be dedicated to Jim
McCollum, who worked almost single-
handed to raise the funds needed to
improve the pavilion. There will be a
dinner served at this performance only,
and tickets must be purchased in
advance at the theatre box office. For a
lesser charge there will be shows on
Feb. 5 at 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Jim McCollum did many great serv-
ices to this area: let's not forget him

Be careful when sending
money
Editor:
Sometime ago. on Aug. 25, 2010. I
mailed in an Amscot money order in
the amount of $102 to ... a company
that advertises posted in various hair
magazines (Hair Styles Showcase. Hair
Cut and Style). to name a few. The ad
offers DVD video containing step-by-
step demonstration on hair cutting. It
also states to allow six to eight weeks
for shipping.
Ten weeks have gone by and I did
not receive my order.
On Oct. 23. 2010, I wrote to the
company demanding a refund and sent
it by fax. It was the only contact num-
ber available in addition to a Web site.
My letter was ignored. In my letter. I
included two contact numbers. I
returned to Amscot and spoke to an


associate and requested a money order
claim to be made, which cost me an
additional $12.
Two weeks later I received a letter
from Amscot Financial. The trace clear-
ly shows the ... had cashed the money
order, cleared their banks on Sept. 8,
2010.
Feeling frustrated at this point and
with no where to go with this matter, I
decided to make an attempt and call
one of the hair magazines (Hair Style
Showcase). I. called Mary Greenberg,
the chief editor, and left countless mes-
sages. Finally, I managed to reach her.
However, she declined to give me a
contact number stating that she would
call the company herself.
Several weeks later I received videos
with covers damaged. The videos
appeared old and poorly recorded, as if
they were homemade. Nothing close to
what was on their ad.
About a week went by and an indi-
vidual named Charles representing the
... called. Charles told me that he was
very sorry and promised to refund my
money and the additional $12. But
never did.
It is now Jan. 21. 2011 and still no
sign of any refund. Certainly, very bad
business practice. I wish all consumers
to be aware of companies. such as the
.... to take extreme caution before mail-
ing in any monies. Such companies as
this should hold no place in any hair
magazine. It tarnishes their reputation.
Nonetheless. it has definitely been an
experience for myself as well as educa-
tional.

President
Obama's State of
the Union address
said more about the
state of his
approach to govern-
ing than it did with
the present condi-
tion of this nation
under his gover-
nance.
It was an uninter-
rupted march of
platitude upon plati-


Making

Sense
Michael
Reagan


tude, with nary a
solution offered to any of the
problems facing the United
States.
As anyone with one cent's
worth of intellect under-
stands, the United States is
not only broke, but up to it's
thinning hairline in debt to
of all places China,
which despite its communist
government is acting more
like a capitalist regime than
an old Moscow-style dicta-
torship.
He was clearly in favor of
virtue and opposed to sin in
all of its many forms -
except, of course, to homo-
sexuality in the armed
forces, which seems to have
won his unspoken accept-
ance. It was a joy to behold
the stolid reaction of the
Commandant of the Marine
Corps to Mr. Obama's appar-
ent acceptance of the legiti-
macy of same-sex relation-
ships in the armed forces of
the United States.
For the most part, the
speech was his attempt to
disguise his quasi-socialist
agenda as being an approach
to political and social mod-
eration not an easy task
for a chief executive who
has just shoved a version of
socialized medicine down
the throats of the American
people.
With the sole and surpris-
ing exception of CNN,
which unlike the other net-
works chose to broadcast the
Tea Party response delivered
by Rep. Michele Bachmann,
R-Minn., the president's
, speech went mostly unchal-
lenged.
Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.,
spoke for his party but his
remarks were lukewarm
compared to those of Rep.
Bachmann, which cut right
to the heart of the Marxist
aspects of the president's
address.
Needless to say, it wasn't
the president's speech which
raised the ire of the so-called
mainstream. GOP, but Rep.
Bachmann's well-aimed
barbs.
She was right on when she
declared, "Two years ago,
when Barack Obama became


our president,
unemployment was
7.8 percent and our:
national debt stood,
at what seemed like:
a staggering $10.6
trillion," she stated.
"We wondered
whether the presi-
dent would cut
spending, reduce
the deficit, and
implement real job-
creating policies.
"Unfortunately


the president's strategy for
recovery was to spend a tril-
lion dollars on a failed stim-
ulus program, fueled by bor-
rowed money. The White
House promised us that all
the spending would keep
unemployment under 8 per-
cent.
"Well,'not only did that
plan fail to deliver, but with-
in three months the national
jobless rate spiked to 9.4
percent."
As the perceptive Mike
Banerian, one of my valued
readers, wrote to me: "From
the very beginning of the
speech I saw a very different
Obama, I saw a new face of
a more moderate president.
Of course that's how he
wanted to come off; I wasn't
fooled. I have talked with
many people who, though
(they) found the speech flat,
said they liked the moderate
stance Mr.Obama has taken.
However looking at the con-
text of the speech I found
the same old, Liberal,
Barack Obama."
Mr. Banerian wrote that he
thought that the overall
speech was "weak," and it
was merely "just a mask for
his liberal views. His con-
clusion: "We need a presi-
dent and a government that
bases its decisions on
Capitalism and Democracy,
not Socialism and
Communism. I hope leaders
such as yourself, Paul Ryan,
Eric Cantor, and many others
take a stand and change
America for the better. I love
this country, let's not let the
little time we have left to fix
this be squandered by a pres-
ident who looks after his
image, over the American
image."
To which all I can say is
"Amen."

Gold rush for a cure

year's event brought big smiles to the faces of residents who cashed in their old
jewelry. Residents Kay Benson (far left) and Wilma Anacher (far right) have their jewel-

Space shuttle Discovery fixed,

back on launch pad


By MARCIA DUNN
AP Aerospace Writer
CAPE CANAVERAL -
Space shuttle Discovery is
back on the launch pad fol-
lowing unprecedented
repairs for its final voyage.
NASA moved Discovery
out of its 'hangar Monday
night, and the rocketship
reached the pad well before
dawn Tuesday. Barring any


more trouble, it should be
the last time Discovery
makes the three-mile trip.
Discovery was supposed
to make its last flight to the
International Space Station
in November. But cracks
popped up in the fuel tank.
NASA sent the shuttle back
to the Vehicle Assembly
Building before Christmas
for the extensive repair.


In the meantime, the lead
spacewalker for the mission
was hurt when he wrecked
his bicycle in Houston last
month. His replacement is
getting a crash course in
training to be ready for the
Feb. 24 launch.

Peggy Jo Richards, postal clerk,

loses fight against cancer


By ED BALDRIDGE
ed.baldridge@newssun.com
AVON PARK Peggy Jo Richards, a
familiar face at the Avon Park Post Office,
died Thursday from complications
with cancer.
She was just 57 years old.
Many remember Richards as a smil-
ing face at the front desk of the Avon
Park Post Office. She took the letters
and packages and for more than 25
years gave advice on mailing. Ric
Co-worker Mike Flowers worked
along side Richards since 1997, and he fond-
ly remembered her as the post office's face
for the public.
"As long as I could remember, Peggy want-
ed to be up front," Flowers said.
"She liked working holidays especially.
Others would try to avoid working with the
public, but not Peggy. She loved being at the
window. She knew everyone in town, and if
she called in sick or was off, people would
ask for her," Flowers added.
"Peggy was always helpful. She helped me
with the scheme training, and was always
there to lend a hand if needed," Flowers said.
"One of the things that I remember fondly
about Peggy was that she liked to cook, and
she cooked a lot. When there was a potluck,
Peggy would always bring tons of food,"
Flowers said.
Richards died at home surrounded by fam-
ily, where she wanted to be, and asked that no
memorial service be held.
She is survived by her husband of 27 years,


Keith; and her daughters. Marsha Barcinas
and Morgan Culbertson of Avon Park.
"She loved to cook and clean," said hus-


hards


band Keith. "She loved to be around
the house. And she loved her grand-
children."
"Momma loved to cook, and she
was a great cook. I don't think she
missed her work, but she missed the
customers at the post office," daughter
Marsha said. "So many times, cus-
tomers of hers would see us around
town and tell her how much they


missed her at the Post Office. Many would let
others skip them so that they could be waited
on by 'Miss Peggy,'" Marsha remembered.
"There were so many good memories, it's
hard to have just one. We shopped and spent
a lot of time together. She loved her grand-
children, and called them 'granny's angels'
all the time. Don't call her grandmother, it
was granny all the way," Marsha said.
"We were very fortunate. She was diag-
nosed with lung cancer in February of 2010,
but until the last couple of weeks, she could
get out and do whatever she wanted. She was
never sick, and just recently she got tired and
lost her appetite," Marsha said.
Richards is also survived by her sister,
Patricia Brantley of Frostproof; four grand-
children, Brooke, Taylor, Rylee and Emmitt;
and several nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, Richards requested that
those who wished to give should make contri-
butions to the Good Shepherd Hospice of
Highlands County.

Having fun in the setting sun


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
It waldn't be a Humane Society fundraiser without at least an animal or two present. Here Abby, or maybe her brother
Barny bichon frise and Maltese mixes runs through the agility course set up outside the Bert J. Harris Ag-Center
for tie, event. Fran Marx guides her dog through the paces.



Helms wants more money, assistant


Continued from page 1A
Him's plan included a staff person
whcwould act as both assistant county
administrator and keep their current
wot load, and that his plan would stay
within the current budget.
"tut of course, all of these sugges-
tiors have to be approved by this
boad," Helms said.
lelms also explained that the salary
andbenefits offered by the board were
notacceptable, and that he expected that
thedetails for compensation would be
adcessed in formal negotiations.
'If the response that I have provided
to ou today is unacceptable, then there


is no need to proceed further," Helms
said.
"All of us realize, that if we keep our
expenses where they are, we are facing
an $11 million hole, and that does not
include the loss in ad valorem taxes,"
Stewart said. "As you are aware, come
September, we are either going to have
to raise taxes, or make significant cuts,
and significant cuts are the way to go.
"I don't think we are far off, Mr.
Helms, and I think we can work on
that," Stewart said.
"I would advise to work creatively
towards a solution. It may not be direct
compensation," Commissioner Don


Elwell directed.
Elwell suggested maybe increasing
the paid time off, or other compensation
that could be an alternative to raising
the salary offer.
"I would like to be able to detail this
out. It's not just the salary," Helms said.
All the meetings and conversations
between Helms and Stewart have to be
in compliance with state sunshine laws,
according to County Attorney Ross
Macbeth.
The commission decided to start
negotiations between Stewart and
Helms this week and return to the board
next Tuesday.

Arts & Crafts show

set for this weekend

in Lake Placid


Continued from page 1A
Green Dragon Drive.
Unlike previous years.
when vendors and food
booths were., located in
Devane Park. food booths
and vendors will line both
sides of Green Dragon
Drive beginning at Town
Hall and leading all the way
down to Lake Placid
Elementary School.
"The: park wasn't avail-'
able for us this year, so it's
going to be a little differ-
ent. The important thing to
remember is the parking.
Everyone should park at the
high school," explained
Richardson.
With that one major
change, everything else
about the fair, including the
food and vendors, has
remained the same. The 12
food and 130 vendor booths
are sure to keep fair cus-
tomers busy throughout the
day. All of the food vendors
are non-commercial, non-
profit vendors including the
Lake Placid Women's Club,
the Rotary Club and Ladies
of the Elks.
If food and shopping
isn't your idea of a good
time, then try entering into
the art exhibit the elemen-
tary school will be hosting
throughout the weekend.
Local artists, painters and
sculptors will all be in
attendance demonstrating
their talents for the commu-
nity.
"People can enter their
art into the exhibit for judg-
ing. All the art needs to be
turned in at the elementary


school exhibit by Friday
night." Richardson said.
The art will be judged
and winners will be
announced and awarded on
Saturday and Sunday aftor-
noon. The exhibits will be
divided into student and
adult divisions and catego-
rired by type of art of craft.
The categories include
,poetry, food, clay/ceramics.
ir. photography, porcelain,
wood crafts, crafts, needle-
crafts, stitchery and fabric
crafts and yarn crafts.
. Several awards will also
be given out this year in the
memory of past fair volun-
teers or arts/crafts partici-
pants. Some of this year's
award namesakes include
Mary Lou Krog, a porcelain
paint instructor; Eileen
Kruger, a nature poet; Edna
Kubic, an established cook;
and Thelma Chase, volun-
teer.
The fair will also offer
tons of entertainment for
children and music lovers.
Heartland Idol winners and
contestants will provide,
entertainment along with
local musicians, groups and
cloggers.
"We have plenty of chil-
dren's activities planned
including Toby the Clown,
face painting, Wrede's
Wildlife, Humane Society
and local church groups,"
Richardson said.
Entrance to the LP Arts
and Crafts Country Fair' as
well as the art exhibit and
parking are all free. Parking
is available at Lake Placid
High School, located at 202
Green Dragon Drive.

State could expand Medicaid privatization


B KELLIKENNEDY
A. sociated Presvy
MIAMI Florida legislators seem
poised to pass a bill during its coming ses-
sion aimed at reducing the state's Medicaid
expenditures by expanding privatization of
the program, but that may not get federal
approval.
The Republican Legislature wants to put
more of the state's nearly 3 million
Medicaid recipients into privately *managed
c-are, expanding a 2006 pilot program
implemented under former Gov. Jeb Bush
that affects five counties Broward,
Duval, Baker. Clay and Nassau.
Gov. Rick Scott said Tuesday he'd like to
expand the program statewide. Scott recent-
ly talked with federal health officials about
the waiver and said he hopes it's extended

without changes. Florida's Medicaidpro-
gram cost about $18 billion during th last
fiscal year, with the state paying $8 tllion
and the federal government footing $1 bil-
lion. The cost is expected to rise tornore
than $20 billion during the current 'iscal
year.
The federal Centers for Medicar, and'
Medicaid Services is working wit the
state, but says it's unlikely it will epand
the pilot program in its current forn'amid
widespread patient and doctor comraints.
Medicaid primarily provides medicL cov-
erage for the poor.
CMS likely won't make its decision: until
June when the current federal waiver Ilow-
ing the pilot program expires wel after
the Legislature's March 2 to May 6 session
ends.

Dragon D key in victory


News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE
Kyle Newton was the hitter with the hot hand over the weekend for SFCC, blasting two
home runs, three doubles and driving in seven in Saturday's sweep of Webber.



Homeric heroics


By DAN HOEHNE
daniel.hoehne@newssun.com
AVON PARK Cooled off
bats lead to consecutive loss-
es for the SFCC baseball
Panthers, 6-3 Sunday at Lake
Sumter and 3-1 Monday at
Webber International, but
heavy hitting had propelled
the squad to three wins to
start the season earlier this
past weekend.
Friday's opener was high-
lighted by Brett Clements
dramatic, walk-off home run,
and it was more of the long
ball Saturday that lead to a
doubleheader sweep of
Webber International.


Shortstop Kyle Newton
was the hitting hero on the
day, belting a home run and
two doubles in the 9-1 win in
the first game and adding
another tater and double in
the second-game, 12-6 win,
totaling seven RBI.
Freshmen James Gray and
Richard Whiteleather com-
bined on the mound in the
first game to hold the
Warriors to the lone run, giv-
ing up just five hits, walking
four and striking out 11.
Adam Quiles got the start
in the second game, but it
was Lake Placid's David
Samperi who came on in


relief of the close game and
got the win when the
Panthers broke it open late.
Newton kept up his hot
hitting Sunday, going 2-for-4
with an RBI and Karson
Kravec tatooed his second
tater of the year.
But the offense, on the
whole, was held in check and
needs to get reignited for the
continuation of their busy
schedule with a contest at
Daytona State this afternoon,
a double-header at home
Saturday against Santa Fe
and a travel date at Seminole
State Sunday.

LAKE PLACID A
sketchy offense early dug
them into a hole. But it was
tight defense late and an
unselfish offense that
helped Lake Placid's Green
Dragons come back and
take a 77-71 win over visit-
ing Okeechobee Monday
night.
"We missed about four
lay-ups in the first few min-
utes," head coach David
Veley said. "And their
record might not be too
impressive, but
(Okeechobee) is a 5A school
that's a lot bigger than us
and plays very good compe-
tition."
Those early missed
'gimmes' were offset a bit
with Devontray Fleming


draining a three, answering
a trey from Brahman guard
Eddie Neal.
The teams' continued to
trade scores, with Jessie
Thomas getting inside for
Okeechobee and Fleming
scoring on the break.
Colby Frank scored on a
follow and Kirk Veley
tipped in a rebound before a
Neal floater was answered
by an Andre Wilson 12-foot
jumper.
But that would be Lake
Placid's last score of the
period as the Brahman's
rolled off the next 12 points
for a 21-9 margin after eight
minutes.
After Wilson opened the
second with a score in the
paint, 'Chobee added an
Alonzo Coleman drive and
DeForest Shanks three.


Fleming then hit two free
throws and Frank split a pair
at the line to make it a 27-13
game.
But then Brody Carr came
up big with two three's
sandwiching a Mike
Hernandez score and the
Dragons started digging into
the lead.
Fleming hit a leaner and
Nevada Weaver scored the
next six Lake Placid points.
The Brahman's held on,
answering for the most part,
but the Dragons had cut the
lead to 39-31 by intermis-
sion.
'Chobee looked to break
it open again, with Frank
scoring the first four of the
third, but Wilson and
Fleming scored consecu-

While he had a game-high 33 points, Devontray Fleming, #10, played a key role defen-
sively as he and Kirk Veley clamp down on Eddie Neal with a double-team off the half-
court press in Monday's win over Okeechobee.


A busy off-season for Highcroft with HPD


Special to the News-Sun
DANBURY, CT
Highcroft Racing's renowned
development skills have been
put to good use by team part-
ner Honda Performance
Development over the off
season.
The back-to-back
American Le Man Series
championship winning team
has been entrusted by HPD to
develop its new-for-2011 V6
turbo LMP2 engine.


The team conducted three
tests for HPD, the last taking
place at the MSR Houston
facility in Texas recently.
In total, the team complet-
ed more than 2,100 miles on
the new HR28TT engine
which will be used in LMP2
competition this year by a
variety of teams including
Level 5 Motorsport in the US
and Strakka Racing and RML
in Europe.

The V6 turbo LMP2 engine
Higheroft has been busy
with.


Pagenaud was entrusted with
much of the development
work on the new engine that
was installed by Highcroft
into last year's championship
winning ARX-01c chassis.
Teammate Marino
Franchitti also drove the car
in Texas. .
This new V6 twin turbo
from Honda is quite amaz-
ing," Pagenaud said. "I have
been part of it's evolution
since the first test and it has


been a remarkably reliable
engine.
"Not only does it cover
miles and miles but also the
HPD engineers have found
more torque and more power
at each test we went to.
"We have concentrated our
focus mostly on the drive-
ability to make it easy to
drive for anyone this is def-
initely going to be a serious
weapon in LMP2.
"I was glad to be joined by


my 2010 teammate Marino
Franchitti so he could bring
some fresh thoughts on this
engine.
"I can't wait to see the
reaction of the fans when
they will hear this particular
V6 engine noise. This power-
plant clearly has the Honda
Racing DNA in it.
"If I was to run LMP2
again I would rather have a

Coach Mike Tomlin, left, and quarterback Ben
Roethlisberger, second from right, exit off the Pittsburgh
Steelers charter at D/FW Airport, Monday January 31.
Cold and snowy weather seems to have followed the
Steelers and Packers to Dallas and could hamper those
traveling there for Sunday's Super Bowl.


Deep freeze following

Packers, Steelers to Texas


By SCHUYLER DIXON
Associated Press
DALLAS The NFL is
sticking to its Super Bowl
schedule Tuesday despite
an ice storm that has struck
the Dallas area.
NFL spokesman Greg
Aiello sent out a Twitter
message saying media
activities at Cowboys
Stadium will go on as
planned.
Both the Green Bay
Packers and the Pittsburgh
Steelers are scheduled to be
available for one hour for
the hundreds of reporters in
town for this weekend's
game.
Aiello tweeted: "The
show goes on. Media day is
on schedule. Drive careful-
ly. The stadium roof is
closed."
Dallas-Fort Worth
International Airport has
closed due to the storm, at
least for a while.
A wintry blast of ice,


blustery winds and plum-
meting temperatures has
also closed schools and
snarled traffic.
Super Bowl week in
Texas isn't turning out to
be all that much different
for the Green Bay Packers:
They might even practice
indoors leading to Sunday's
game against the Pittsburgh
Steelers.
"Sorry we brought the
weather with us." Green
Bay coach Mike McCarthy
said Monday after his team
arrived in the Dallas area.
The storm was expected
to dump more than a foot of
snow on parts of the
Midwest and bring freezing
rain and bone-chilling cold
to parts of Texas on
Tuesday and Wednesday.
There's a chance of light
snow off and on this week.
The forecast for Sunday
is much better highs in

Meyer joins ESPN
Urban Meyer is joining ESPN as an ana-
lyst less than two months after he sur-
prised the college football world by
resigning from his plum job as Florida's
coach.
Meyer will call one game a week during
the regular season and serve as a stu-
dio analyst. the network said.
He'll start with Wednesdays signing
day coverage.
When he resigned Dec. 8. the 46-year-
old Meyer said he wanted to spend
more time with his family.
He insisted on a conference call his
new job wouldn't get in the way of that,
with minimal commitment during the
offseason and travel only over the
weekend in-season.
Meyer led Florida to two national titles
before resigning in December 2009, cit-
ing health concerns.
That lasted just a day, a year later.
though, he left for good.

LP overcomes deficit


Continued from 1B
tively and the vaunted half-
court press started to take
effect in creating some break
out opportunities.
Fleming scored twice in
this fashion, as did Weaver to
cut the lead to 43-39 at the
5:42 mark of the period.
though Neal canned another
one from beyond the arc to
halt the run.
Fleming drove to the rim
again, but so did Frank as the
momentum took a brief shift.
Wilson laid one in with the
left hand, but Shanks hit a
three and Neal a floater
before Fleming single-hand-
edly shifted the tide.
Four consecutive scores.
including a three-point play.
netted him 15 points for the
quarter, 26 for the game to
that point, and had cut the


lead to one before Frank
closed the quarter with a fol-
low that made it 55-52 enter-
ing the final frame.
But here. the combination
of tightening defense and
unselfish play took the game
in another direction.
-"We knew we had to get
some stops and get out in
transition." Wilson said.
"Coach always preaches to us
that assists win games and
that's what got it done for
us."
A Fleming drive and dish
lead to an easy Wilson lay-in
and Veley found Nick Swain
underneath for another score.
Wilson put back an offen-
sive rebound and Swain got
another score on a nifty pass
from Carr.
Suddenly, that three-point


deficit was a 60-55 lead.
Shanks halted the run with
a drive, but Carr hit another
long one to make it 63-57.
The Brahman's bulled their
way to two straight scores.
but Veley and Fleming
answered with drives to the
rim. with Fleming also get-
ting fouled and finishing the
three-point play.
A Shanks lay-in was then
followed by a fast-break
dunk from Fleming and after
Veley hit one free throw, his
miss was corralled by Weaver
and put back for the essential
back-breaker, giving the
Dragons a 73-65 lead with
just over a minute to play.
. Two final-minute threes
from Thomas and Neal could
have made things a bit more
interesting, but Fleming and


Wilson scores kept them as
more anti-climactic in seal-
ing the win.
Fleming paced the scoring
with a game-high 33 with
% 1 -*n adding 14 and
Weaver 12.
"This was a real good win
for us." coach Veley said.
"This was a good step to take
in order to get where we want
to be at the tournament next
week."
Next week is when the
third-seeded Dragons host
the District 9-3A
Tournament, but they have a
couple more tune-ups before
then.
The team hosted Vanguard
Tuesday for Senior Night
before heading to Hardee for
the regular-season wrap-up
with the Wildcats.

> TV analyst Larry McReynolds
thinks the media should accentuate the
positive ...just as he does. Many think
the job is to describe what happens
"as is."
The same drivers who, after last
year's Daytona races, expressed fear
and loathing at a new coat of pavement
are now describing it as the greatest
development since indoor plumbing.
10 Tony Stewart likes the new points
system because, he said, consistency
ought to be more important Brian
France insisted that the changes make
winning more important What Stewart
said was surprising but accurate.
France wants us to think wishfully.
Under both systems, old and new,
the percentage of points awarded to
the runner-up, compared with those of
the winner, is virtually the same.
The base points, in positions 1-43,
are awarded in single increments, from
43 for first to one for last. Three bonus
points go to the winner, along with one
each for leading a lap and leading the
most laps. The maximum is 48.
Under the new system, a 25-point
lead is roughly equivalent to a 100-point
edge under the previous system.
Part of the reason for the change
was simplicity. NASCAR's analysis
apparently revealed a need to make the
system easier to understand.
N Under the previous system, last
place in points was worth about 20
percent of winning. Now it's worth
about 2 percent
0 The new system is also in place
for the Nationwide and Camping World
Truck series. Those series do not have a
Chase, however.
In Sprint Cup, the Chase will be ,
seeded on the basis of three points
per victory. In other words, a driver with
three regular-season victories would
start the Chase with nine points more
than a winless qualifier.

No. 9 STANLEY TOOLS/DEWALT FORD FUSION


John Clark/NASCAR This Week
After falling to 26th in the Sprint Cup standings last season, Marcos Ambrose is driving with a new team (Petty Motorsports) in a
new car (No. 9 Ford). With strong roots in road racing, Ambrose has been working on oval tracks and hoping to develop his racing.







Petty Gets Touch







Of Ambrose


Good-natured Tasmanian looks to develop on all tracks


By Monte Dutton
NASCAR This Week
Marcos Ambrose, the NASCAR driver from the Aus-
tralian island of Tasmania, is hoping a change will put
his Sprint Cup career back on track.
In his first full season, Ambrose finished a creditable
18th in the 2009 points standings while competing for
JTG/Daugherty Racing, a Toyota team affiliated with
Michael Waltrip Racing. He finished second at Watkins
Glen, N.Y., and had three other top-five finishes.
But he fell to 26th in the Cup standings last year and
moved to Richard Petty Motorsports this year. This puts
Ambrose back in the Ford camp. Ambrose, 34, has won
the Nationwide Series race at Watkins Glen in each of the
past three seasons. He found his first success inAustralia's
V8 Supercar Series, winning the 2003-04 championships.
Asked about driving for a team named for NASCAR's
most successful driver, the good-natured Ambrose
said: "Well, it is a little intimidating. Not only now will he
say 'Good-day, how is it going?' but he will also want to
know why I didn't win the race. There is a lot of prestige


being associated with Richard Petty Motorsports, and
it is a real honor for me to drive for The King. I never
thought I would get that chance.
"I am looking forward to the opportunity, and hope-
fully, he is going to be proud of me, just like I am of his
company."
Ambrose joked about teammate A.J. Allmendinger's
laughable attempts at an Australian accent, but added
that "He and I get on great. We have known each other
for a fewyears now, and it's going to be fun to have him
as a teammate."
While learning the ropes of oval-track racing, Am-
brose has enjoyed the bulk of success in road races.
Allmendinger also has a road-racing background.
"I think that both of us really want to just be known as
NASCAR contenders," said Ambrose. "I knowA.J. had a
really good second half last year and has momentum.
I'm trying to catch up to him as quickly as I can. We just
want to be known as contenders every week. We want
to be known not just as road-race specialists, but NAS-
CAR drivers in general."

Childress 'Johnson
RICHARD CHILDRESS
VS. JIMMIE JOHNSON
The Sprint Media Tour was mainly a lovefest of
hope and optimism, but team owner Childress
predicted one of his drivers would unseat John-
son and end the Hendrick Motorsports driver's
record streak of five straight championships. The
likeliest threat, of course, is Kevin Harvick.
NASCAR This Week's Monte Dutton
gives his take: "Johnson predictably took the
high road. It works for him."




Follow Me For A Minute
This Week welcomes letters to the editor,

for only a few each week. We'll do our best

Dear NASCAR This Week,
I'm a NASCAR fan. It's more fun when they
make more than left turns. It's more exciting
when you have road courses like California.
I miss the days of Pikes Peak Road Course.
I'm glad you go to Japan, South America,
England. So maybe one of the drivers will get
revived and deal to go back to Bonneville and
break Bobby Isaac's record in a stock car. Can
you hear all them sound waves like me?
John Phillips
Shelby, N.C.
OK, lefs see. The only possible road course at
Pikes Peak is the Hill Climb, which is a dirt road
up the famous mountain in which the racing is
one at a time. The track, now out of business,
that carried the name Pikes Peak was an oval.
One disadvantage of road courses is that fans
who attend can see relatively little of the action.
A stock car on the Bonneville Salt Rats would
be cool, but its doubtful its going to happen. If
you are referring to NASCAR exhibitions, South
America and England haven't hosted any, and
its been many years since the Japan exhibitions.
The Nationwide Series raced for several years in
Mexico City, but Mexico is not in South America.



Just a Matter of Time

Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Cathy
Elliott edited and compiled a second version of a
NASCAR "Chicken Soup for the Soul," subtitled,
"NASCAR: 101 Stories of Family, Fortitude and
Fast Cars." Among the contributors are Jimmie

Eamhardt, Kurt Busch, Joey Logano, Michael
Waltrip, Brian Vickers and Buddy Baker. For

Ford Milestone Ahead

Ford's next Sprint Cup victory will be its 600th.
Ford victory No. 300 came from one of the manu-
facturer's most
loyal clients, Bud
Moore who was
named to the
NASCAR Hall of
Fame's second
class. Benny
Parsons drove
Moore's No. 15
Ford to victory in the last Cup race ever run at Texas
World Speedway, the Budweiser 400 of June 7,
1981. Only 18,000 or so watched Parsons outduel
Dale Earnhardt for a half-second victory.


The difference for Keselowski this year: T-E-A-M


By Monte Dutton
NASCAR This Week
Brad Keselo\\wki \as astonishingly
consistent en rotne to winning the Na-
tionwide Series championship last year.
The contrast could scarcely have been
greater in Sprint Cup, where he was
notably erratic.
Whvi"
"I think we conitiiinuously underesti-
mate, in this sport, the importance of
teamwork," said thel Penske Racingdriver.
"I don't know x\h\ that is. 11hat's what it's
about: having a team that clicks. We look
up and say, so-and-so, he's a great driver,
and he's just going to automatically run
well. Well, no, it's team sport, and for


some reason in racing, we all just look
right at the drivers and don't ever look at
the crew chiefs and crew members, and
give them any value.
"I had a very valuable, great team on
the Nationwide side last vear. ... We
weren't able to do that on the Cup side.
I think that's the best way I can explain
it: Never, ever underestimate the value
of a great team."
When the time comes Mark Martin
is not ready to ponder life after Hendrick
Motorsports, where his tenure will come
to an end, at least as a Cup driver, at the
completion of the coming season.


"It would be better to ask me about
that in September," he said. "I can't see
that far ahead. I'm just looking at what's
in front of me. I couldn't care less about
2012 right now.
"I doubt I'll have the first conversation
about it for some time. The best deals
come together late. ... I'm thrilled at
what's in front of me. I won't make that
decision until there's a decision to be
made."
Respect the experience Lance
McGrew is now Martin's crew chief
after serving Dale Earnhardt Jr. in that
capacity, and it represents a change in
the driver-crew chief relationship.
McGrew said it would be foolish not


to show deference to Martin's experi-
ence and make use of it.
"A guy with that kind of experience
makes a difference," said McGrew.
"You'll still be focusing on where the
car's going to be on Sunday. What Mark
Martin brings to the table is, he knows,
he's been there, done that. He knows
what's bothering him today, what's not
going to be bothering him tomorrow.
He's seen it.
"You can't put a price on a guy who's
had the laps on every race track, knows
where he needs to be.A lot has changed,
but the simple fact is, it's still a steering
pedal, a gas pedal and four tires. Funda-
mentally, it's not that different."

Highcroft gearing up



for opener at Sebring


Continued from 1B
Honda with me than against
me. Good luck to all the
Honda powered teams in
2011."-
Highcroft has a long histo-
ry of development projects
for HPD.
One of first teams entrust-
ed with factory status at the
commencement of the Acura
program in 2007. the
Danbury, CT-based team also
became the official chassis
development squad work-
ing hand-in-hand with Wirth
Research.
Franchitti was also able to
provide valuable input for
HPD in Texas.
He has driven all three
makes which have tasted vic-
tory in the LMP2 class in
recent years in the US -
Porsche, Mazda and HPD.
"It was a real pleasure to
join the Highcroft team, HPD
and my team mate Simon for
first test of the new year, and
to experience the new LMP2
power plant first hand,"
Franchitti said. "It also


allowed me to blow the cob-
webs off after the long winter
break since our victory at
Petit Le Mans and drive in
both the dry and wet.
"The Highcroft team have
done a first class job of the
instillation of the new motor
and HPD have produced a
strong package that has great
drivability and is improving
every run we do. We also
covered more than 1000 trou-
ble free miles over two days
which is outstanding.
"I'm sure the LMP2 cus-
tomers who are competing
with HPD this year will be
delighted when they get the
chance to try the new V6
twin turbo for themselves and
I wish them all the best for
the coming season."
HPD also recently com-
pleted a 4,000 mile durability
dyno test at' its headquarters
in Santa Clarita in California.
The 2.8 liter V6 turbo
engine is now set to make its
race debut at the opening
round of the 2011 American
Le Mans Series presented by


Tequila Patron the Mobil 1
Twelve Hours of Sebring on
March 19.
"I'm very happy with the
results of the off-season test-
ing completed to date with
Highcroft Racing," Honda
Performance Development
Project Leader, Allen Miller
said. "The Highcroft guys
did an excellent job with the
installation which has
allowed us to run over 2100
trouble free miles while our
race engineers worked on
tuning and improving engine
performance.
"Our new HR28TT engine
is a joint effort of HPD and
Honda R&D in Ohio, the
first time the two companies
have worked together on an
engine development project.
"The results have been
great. Engine performance
and reliability on the dyno
and on track have been just
as expected. I feel we have
an engine ready to go for the
2011 ALMS and LMS race
seasons."


Cold comes with Packers, Steelers


Continued from 1B
the 50s but Packers quar-
terback Aaron Rodgers didn't
want to take any chances.
He said he hoped the roof
of Cowboys Stadium in
Arlington, the billion-dollar
showplace of Jerry Jones,
would be closed for the
game.
The NFL decided a long
time ago that it will be.
"I'm hoping they put the
top on Jerry World, and I
think they will," Rodgers
said.
The National Weather
Service advised Wisconsin
travelers bound for Texas to
wait until Wednesday
evening, with up to 20 inches
of snow forecast for the
Milwaukee area.
One Packers fan actually
moved up his departure.
John O'Neill, known as St.
Vince because he wears a
green bishop's outfit and a
mitre with Vince Lombardi's
face on it to home games,
was driving to Dallas this
week because of the weather
warnings.
"If you're going to make
the journey the worst thing
you can do is shortchange
yourself," said O'Neill, 58.


Don Zuidmulder of Green
Bay said he wasn't worried
about weather affecting his
flight Thursday.
"As long as I have 18
hours I'm going to get there,"
said Zuidmulder, 68,
undaunted by the 950-mile
trip. "I'll crawl if I have to."
Weather service meteorol-
ogist Jesse Moore said the
sharpest cold, driven by
northern winds up to 25 mph
that could drop wind chill
readings below zero, will
come Wednesday.

'I'll crawl if I

have to.'

DON ZUIDMULDER
Green Bay Packer fan

"I'm keeping my fingers
crossed and hoping for the
best," said Tracy Gilmour,
spokeswoman for Sundance
Square, an outdoor venue in
downtown Fort Worth that is
one of the broadcasting hubs
and just a few blocks from
the Steelers' hotel. "We're
going to keep the party going
as best we can."
. Most Super Bowl trips are
sold in four-day packages,


and forecasts for Thursday
are better in Texas and the
participating cities.
One travel agent in
Pittsburgh said her agency'
had no weather-related
changes among about 20
bookings because the fore-
cast was good for Thursday,
Friday and Saturday, when
most clients were leaving.
"If that changes, we're in
trouble," said Nancy Buncher
of Gulliver's Travels.
The Texas Department of
Transportation brought in
extra equipment from around
the state for road work,
including snow plows that
are normally busy in the
colder Texas Panhandle, said
Val Lopez, an agency
spokesman.
"It's really not any differ-
ent than if we had a hurri-
cane," Lopez said. "In past
years, with hurricanes we've
been asked to help the coastal
areas. This is kind of the
reverse of that."

Associated Press writers Carrie
Antlfinger in Milwaukee, Dinesh
Ramde in Green Bay, Wis.,
Patrick Walters in Philadelphia
and AP Sports Writer Chris
Jenkins in Dallas contributed to
this report.

be realistic while targeting
the highest-risk groups.
"I think it's important for
us to do this in a way that
doesn't create an immediate
backlash," he said. "If we
fail to get our arms around
the obesity epidemic, espe-
cially in our children, we're
going to see a significant
increase in health care costs
over time."
A number of major food
makers have announced
plans during the past few
years to cut sodium in their
products as pressure from
health advocates, consumers
and regulators has built.
Kraft Foods Inc., ConAgra
Foods Inc., General Mills
Inc., Heinz Co., Campbell
Soup Co. and Bumble Bee
Foods Inc. are just some of
the companies that have
committed to lowering sodi-
um levels. But it's often a
multiyear process to dial
down the sodium, largely so
consumers do not detect the
changes in taste.


Campbell's said Monday
that it now sells over 200
lower sodium products,
which they say is eight times
the number of reduced sodi-
um foods they offered five
years ago.
But it's unclear if the
industry will be able to cut
enough to satisfy the new
guidelines. The Food and
Drug Administration has said
it will pressure companies to
take voluntary action before
it moves to regulate salt
intake.
Dr. Howard Koh, assistant
secretary at the Health and
Human Services Department,
said food companies will
have to make cuts for the
reductions to work.
"Even the most motivated
consumer can make only a
certain amount of progress
before it's clear that,we need
extra support from the food
industry," Koh said.
Margo Wootan, director of
nutrition policy at the Center
for Science in the Public
Interest, says the heightened
interest in the dangers of too
much sodium could help
somewhat. But she believes


the FDA will have to take
action for the companies to
reduce enough salt to matter.
"The companies are only
going to do it if there's a
really strong push," she said.
New York City has
already pushed a little,
launching a campaign with
the goal of cutting salt con-
sumption by at least 20 per-
cent in five years. That's
modeled on a plan carried
out in Britain which set vol-
untary salt reduction targets
for 85 categories of
processed foods.
Consumers still have some
control. To reduce the risk of
disease from high sodium
intake, the guidelines say
people should:
-Read nutrition labels
closely and buy items
labeled low in sodium.
-Use little or no salt
when cooking or eating.
-Consume more fresh or
home-prepared foods and
fewer processed foods, so
they know exactly what they
are eating.
-Ask that salt not be
added to foods at restau-
rants.


-Gradually reduce sodi-
um intake over time to get
used to the taste.
Other recommendations in
the guidelines are similar to
previous years limit trans
fats, reduce calorie intake
from solid fats and added
sugars, eat fewer refined
grains and more whole
grains, consume less than
300 mg per day of choles-
terol. The guidelines also
recommend eating less than
10 percent of calories from
saturated fats full-fat
cheese and fatty meats, for
ex-ample.
The government promotes
these guidelines to con-
sumers by using a symbolic
pyramid. Introduced more
than five years ago, it does-
n't specify recommended
amounts of foods but directs
people to a USDA website
that details the guidelines.
That replaced an old pyra-


mid that specified what to
eat after surveys showed that
few people followed it.
Vilsack said USDA may
come out with a new icon.
but that won't be for a few
more months. For now. the
government wants con-
sumers to focus on the
guidelines themselves.
He says the recommenda-
tions coupled with. efforts
from industry and other goy-
ernment campaigns for ''
healthy eating, such as first
lady Michelle Obama's
"Let's Move" initiative -
should bring about some
change in the country's diet.
"I don't think it necessari-
ly has to take a generation or
two to see some progress,"
he said.

DIVERSIONS


Dear Abby: My husband
has been talking about many
married couples who take
showers together. In fact, he
claims that most couples do.
Our relationship in the bed-
room has been great so far,
and I'd like to keep it there.
I don't want a twosome in
the bathroom. Am I wrong to
enjoy my privacy in the -
shower?
Squeaky Clean in North
Carolina
Dear Squeaky Clean:
Many married couples take
showers together, and many
don't. Among those who do,
some find it arousing; others
just enjoy the intimacy and
having someone to scrub
their backs.
If you feel your time in
the shower is sacred alone
time, you're entitled to your
feelings. If an encounter
isn't pleasurable for both
parties involved, then it's
usually not particularly satis-
fying for either one.

Dear Abby: My younger
sister, "Janet." and I are very
close. We live near each
other and have many of the
same friends. My problem is,
Janet likes to share stories
about our childhood, and our
childhood was horrible. We
were poor and homeless
more than once. Both our
parents were on drugs, and
our father was abusive to our
mother.
I have tried telling my sis-
ter that when she shares
these stories. I not only find
it humiliating, but also find
myself reliving the awful
experiences. Her response is
to remind me that we're not


Dear Abby
those kids anymore. She
doesn't think it's anything to
be ashamed of. Is she wrong
to tell these horror stories
that involve both of us, or do
I need to stop trying to for-
get?
Not Looking in the
Rearview Mirror
Dear Not Looking: Your
sister is correct that your
childhood is nothing you
should be ashamed of. Both
of you have managed to
thrive in spite of the chaotic
environment in which you
were raised. However, for
her to persist in raising a
subject that you have told
her is painful is insensitive -
particularly if she's doing it
in your presence. You may
have a shared history, but
you clearly have different
coping mechanisms, and she
should respect yours.

Dear Abby: When my
daughter was 14 months old,
she had a serious accident
while under my parents'
supervision. They were not
negligent. What happened
could have occurred if I had
been there. I rushed to the
hospital, where we stayed
for five days and, thankfully,
my daughter recovered.
I was shocked and hurt
that my mother never once

apologized. When I brought
it up, she said it's obvious
she feels terribly guilty, that
I know how devoted she is
to my daughter and, there-
fore, an apology is ridicu-
lous.
I know it wasn't her
"fault," but I'still feel the
right thing to do in that situ-.
ation would have been for
her to say, "I'm sorry this
happened. I wish I had been
more observant." Is this
superfluous? Are my feelings
reasonable?

your daughter now? How
long have you hung onto
your anger at your mother
over this incident? You said
there was no negligence on
the part of your parents, and
the accident could have
occurred while your daugh-
ter was under your supervi-
sion. Do you know that your
mother loves your daughter
and feels terrible about what
happened? If so, let it go,
already!

Health is not always about
just the body. Your mental
health is just as important to
have a well balanced life. I
have a lot to be grateful for
in my life. Counting my
many blessings daily has
helped me maintain a
healthy mental attitude. It is
a proven fact that showing
gratitude can help lift your
spirits, give you strength,
and bring you peace.
Bob Proctor put it this
way, "Gratitude is an atti-
tude that hooks us up to our
source of supply. And the
more grateful you are, the
closer you become to your
maker, to the architect of the
universe, to the spiritual core
of your being. It's a phenom-
enal lesson."
One way to show your
gratitude is to give back. If
you want something new if
your life you usually have to
give something to get it.
For example, if you want
to improve your health you
may have to give up your
daily Ding Dong addiction.
If you want to declutter
your house you will proba-
bly have to give away some
of that clutter. If you want to
gain a healthy relationship
you might have to give up a
relationship that is not so
good for you. See what I
mean?
Another way to show grat-
itude is by expressing it ver-
bally or in writing to whoev-
er needs to hear it. Try
telling your children how
grateful you are for them. Or
tell your mother the same
thing watch how their
countenance changes and
how much better your rela-
tionships become. Gratitude
is a well spring in life.
I have to tell you, I am
grateful for you. I am grate-
ful for all you do and have

FAMILY FEATURES

Valentine's Day naturally brings thoughts of hearts,
flowers, sweetness and love. But did you know that
it also falls during American Heart Month? A perfect
time to start taking care of your heart and the hearts
of the ones you love.
You might think that a heart-healthy diet is boring or flavorless.
Actually, eating for your heart can add a lot of flavor, and some
of it may come from surprising sources such as watermelon.
Eating watermelon can help maintain cardiovascular health. That's
because the amino acid called citrulline in watermelon increases
free arginine which helps maintain blood flow, the arteries, and
overall cardiovascular function.
To get more scrumptious recipes like these, and to learn more
about the heart benefits of watermelon, visit www.watermelon.org.
