By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING One of society's most complex roles is motherhood. Mothers have always had one of the most difficult jobs. For some women, the task of nurturing and caring for another's life is a welcome from the start. For others, they need time to grow into the role and for many it is a role they neither desire nor can handle. It is always a difficult period for expecting mothers when they are preparing for the birth of an unplanned child. There are many emotions that each woman feels throughout the pregnancy and many questions that eventually have to be answered. Shannon McCracken helps women find those answers. McCracken is the owner of Little Angels Adoption Agency in Sebring. She has worked for years helping women decide if adoption is the right thing for their children. McCracken adopted her first child, which is how she got into the business. "The biggest misconception surrounding adoption is that it's all high school teenagers whose parents make them give their kid up, but that is rarely ever the case," McCracken explained. McCracken who adopted her first child, which inspired her to open her business has worked with hundreds of mothers from all around the state and of those, McCracken has dealt with only one teenager. "She was 14 years old and she had twins," McCracken said. "I've only had two or three college-aged girls. They have all been adult women, most with children already." That fact is shocking to most, leaving people to wonder why an adult would ever give up their child. For many women, it was a decision they felt they had to make for themselves and their family. Becky (the mothers'names have been changed to protect their privacy) was a 24-year-old working mother who found herself in the middle of an unplanned pregnancy last year. She already had a 1-yearold and was struggling to make ends meet. Most mothers who give up babies aren't teens See ADOPTION, page 8A Kickoff classics launch seasonSebring rolls to win over Lake Placid, Avon Park falls to Frostproof in debuts SPORTS, 1B By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK Equipment failures, unsa fe conditions, unhappy emplo yees and racial tensions ex ist at the Highlands Coun ty Landfill, according to vide otaped meetings and employ ee statements.

Associated PressYARMOUTH, Mass. In the end, Hurricane Earl wasn't even as bad as some of the no-name nor'easters that pound New England from time to time. The storm, far less intense than feared, brushed past the Northeast and dumped heavy, wind-driven rain on Cape Cod cottages and fishing villages, but caused little damage. It left clear, blue skies in its wake, the perfect start to the Labor Day weekend. The worst of the damage in Massachusetts amounted to a few hundred power outages, a handful of downed power lines and isolated flooding. The storm didn't make much of an impression on the dozen people who stayed overnight at a Red Cross shelter at the Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School in Yarmouth on the Cape. "Everybody was ready for something big to happen," said Red Cross worker Harry Watling. "But when it came, most of us hardly even noticed." After skimming past both North Carolina and Massachusetts, Earl finally made landfall Saturday morning near Western Head, Nova Scotia. Though the National Hurricane Center in Miami downgraded Earl to a tropical storm on Friday night, Canadian officials didn't do so until about 12 hours later. The storm brought heavy sheets of rain and swift gusts to Nova Scotia, toppling some trees and bringing down power lines. Power outages were spreading across the southern part of the province and there were numerous flight cancellations. Police said the road to the popular Peggy's Cove tourist site near Halifax was closed to keep curious storm-watchers away from the dangerous, pounding surf. Earl had swooped into New England waters Friday night as a tropical storm with winds of 70 mph after sideswiping North Carolina's Outer Banks, where it caused flooding but no injuries and little damage. The rain it brought to Cape Cod, Nantucket Island and Martha's Vineyard was more typical of the nor'easters that residents have been dealing with for generations except this one disrupted the unofficial last weekend of summer. Winds on Nantucket blew at around 30 mph, with gusts above 40 mph. The island got more than 2 inches of rain, while adjacent Martha's Vineyard got more than 4 inches. Hyannis, home to Kennedy compound, got about 4.5 inches. Nantucket, the well-to-do resort island and old-time whaling port, briefly saw some localized flooding, but it cleared within hours, Nantucket Assistant Town Manager Gregg Tivnan said. Peter Judge, spokesman for the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, said the damage was so minimal on Cape Cod and the islands that the agency didn't send out assessment teams as planned Saturday morning. "There's nothing to assess at this point," he said. "It wasn't even a really bad rainstorm."

But Labor Day is important. I t is the only national recognit ion of the millions of people w ho man the assembly lines, b uild the houses, clean the rest r ooms, pick the oranges, coll ect the garbage, fix the pipes, d ig the trenches, wait on the c ustomers, or do any of the n ecessary tasks that involve h eavy lifting and hard work. T hese people are typically paid l ow wages by the hour, often e arning no benefits. We owe these millions of p eople our respect and gratit ude. They are the ones who a ctually built this country. If you drive on a road, thank t he men and women who grade d the foundation and laid the a sphalt. Being a day to celebrate w orking people, Labor Day is exactly the day to consider the future of work here in Highlands County. What kind of opportunities is our community going to create for the next generation? At a time of double digit unemployment, when approximately 14,000 county residents are on food stamps, there isn't a topic more pressing. We raise the issue because we're worried the vision of the county's future has become too narrow the emphasis at the moment being on attracting high-tech industry, to create high-paying, high-status jobs. Of course there's nothing wrong with that, but we feel the only safe economic foundation is a diversified one. Hightech jobs alone will not ensure prosperity. Industry, high-tech or not, is a component, but not the entire answer. We applaud the work that has been done creating special events to attract tourists to the county. We certainly have the natural resources to entice all kinds of outdoor enthusiasts here. Tourism, however, has its drawbacks too, especially when families have to cut back their discretionary spending; and it is primarily a boon to restaurants and hotels. While important, tourism alone won't be enough either. Agriculture is arguably the field most in flux. But just because things are changing doesn't mean we should allow farming and ranching to be abandoned. In fact farming and ranching have been the most important component of the local economy for generations. With the new emphasis on local products, and healthier habits, family farms have a chance to re-emerge, adding stability, not just in terms of dollars and cents, but for the fabric of society as well. Agriculture has to be a part of a healthy economic mix. In short, as we make our choices over the next years, we must ensure there is enough variety of opportunity and economic production to weather us better in difficult times. If we get caught up in trying to create so-called high-status occupations, housed in glitzy glass towers and do that to the exclusion of everything else Highlands County will end up the poorer. It takes all kinds of labor to help a community thrive. Please remember that as you fire up the grill.

At least in general terms. I say in general terms because there are some things I can do despite this fear. For example, I can fly without becoming a blubbe ring, paralyzed mass. Granted, I pray a lot when I fly, especially during takeoffs and landings. Still, I can even sit by the window on a plane and enjoy the view without any messy fea r getting in the way. But trust me when I say my fear is very real. Put me at the top of a tall flight of stairs with no railing and watch as my feet grow root s and my palms grow clamm y. I avoid most rollercoasters because of this fear. Of course, my sons did not inherit this fear, for which I am thankful. They would climb on top of tall things all the time, stand right on the edge of a drop, and wave at me. Despite th e fact they enjoyed this form of torture, I'm pretty sure they've always loved me. So when I read the story of a young man who fell 40 stories and may actually liv e to talk about it, it might be understandable that my firs t reaction is a shudder. According to witnesses, the 22-year-old jumped fro m the rooftop of a New York City apartment building and landed on a car, crashing through the windshield and winding up in the back seat with two very broken legs. The police state that the young man is in critical con dition. One of the stories I read said this was a suicide attempt. I cannot imagine standin g on the edge of a roof forty stories above the sidewalk, much less jumping. In the unlikely event someone got me that close to the edge I promise you I would do a convincing imitation of a statue until someone came and rescued me. I am that scared. Trust me, if I ever fall from a high place, I did n't jump from the top. As I mentioned earlier, there are some circumstanc es where heights don't bother me. One is flying. Another is swinging. I have fond memories of a playground near my home when I was 12 or 13. They had a swing set there, and I spent a lot of time pushing off and getting some air. N ot that I was brave enough to jump off a swinging swing the fear gave me some limi ts but it was fun. So when Cabell County i n West Virginia says it's removing all the swing sets from its elementary schools I ask the question why? The answer is I am not kidding lawsuits. The dis trict was sued when a youn g boy decided to jump off the swing set "like Superman" and broke his arm. The suit was settled for $20,000. Th e county says they can't affo rd to maintain a safe surface under the swings, so they have to go. What is with people? We got along fine without a sur face besides dirt. And if my siblings and I had jumped off a swing and broken our arm, our parents wouldn't have sued anyone they'd have been too busy yelling at us for being stupid. Have a heart, Cabell County. Restore those swin g sets and tell parents to chill out. Let the kids have some fun. As long as they don't stand on the edge of tall buildings and wave at me. Laura Ware is a Sebring re sident. She can be contacted by e-mail at bookwormlady @ embarqmail.com Of heights and swing sets Laura's Look Laura Ware How much more can we expect?

Thanks to them, each of our f our programs provided us with e ntertainment, information and a s ense of excitement. To name names: Don Appelquist, e xecutive director, SFCC F oundation, who provided an ind epth look at the Hotel Jacaranda, y esterday and today. Lucy Derkman, one of the organi zers of the Avon Park High School "Red Devils" Circus Program back in the 1950s. She served as the emcee at one of our Sunday programs, providing us with the details of that glorious circus era and making sure all former performers and technicians attending our program shared their own circus stories. Paul Ebersbach, chief, Envronmental Flight, at the Avon Park Air Force Range, who gave us a history of the base, from its World War II training days to today's military mission. Peter Anderson, recently retired after having served as park manager of Highlands Hammock State Park for 27 years, who relived his experiences with the Florida Park Service, both in the Keys and locally. And a special thanks to Sharon Schuler, general manager of the Hotel Jacaranda, and her staff for making sure the two sessions we held there went so smoothly. Larry Levey President Historical Society of Avon Park Dillon steps up to give big helpEditor: Recently my family received unexpected assistance for an urgent need. Dr. Pete Dillon helped my sister-in-law with emergency extractions. His willingness to go above and beyond enabled her to enter an addictions treatnet program as scheduled. We have been extremely blessed by his kindness. If you are looking for an excellent family dentist, we highly recommend Dr. Pete Dillon. Michelle Bartnick Lake PlacidFootloose' full of talentEditor: I am now living at the beautiful Southern Lifestyle in Lake Placid. Their wonderful staff watches over my little 19-year-old dog. Afriend, Sandy Smith, took me to the last performance of "Footloose" at Highlands Little Theatre. After my many years with HLT, I am saying for me it was better than Broadway. I am writing again to say Tammie Pollard, along with her staff, is still doing such a great job directing. Pete Pollard is more handsome than ever. I remembered Cameron Wreck's first performance at age 14. I wrote all about him and said "this young man is going to be a star one day." He is now on his way to college to further his career. I was spellbound and can't begin to tell you about the wonderful singing, dancing performed by so many beautiful young people. No way can I pick out one; all were a complement for each other. This was the last show for HLT's season so that they can all get a much needed rest and prepare for the "new season." Thank you all for your warm remembrance after the show; it was a happy night for me, especially since it was my 92nd birthday. Again, my profound thanks go out to Sandy Smith and Southern Lifestyle Assisted Living Facility.

By SAMANTHAGHOLARsgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Woodlawn Elementary students got a treat Friday afternoon at an assembly held in their cafeteria. Students gathered to greet new faculty members and go over the schools safety motto. Dara Johnson, Woodlawn's r eading coach and Positive B ehavior Support committee m ember, went over the S OAR motto with the eager c hildren. "Stay safe, Own your a ctions, Actively Learn, and R espect everyone" are the f our rules that Woodlawn E lementary students have b een renewing and practicing t hroughout the summer and c arry on during the school y ear. After the students listened t o their motto and participated in a mock safety routine, the anxious kids then were treated to a pig kissing ceremony. "We promised the children that if our FCATletter grade went up that some of the members of our faculty would kiss a pig this year," explained Johnson. Principal Kaye Bowers and Assistant Principal Melissa Blackman along with several other teachers all put on lipstick and kissed Emma, a nine-month-old pig provided by a local family. Students erupted as the faculty members each took turns puckering up to the pig and paying their debt to the hard-working Woodlawn students. "We are proud of these kids and we are proud to be an A'school," said Bowers. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 5, 2010Page 7A LIMITED SPACE … CALLTODAY! 5 DAYS a week$ 30 Get In Shape Learn Self Defense Improve Self Esteem Make Better Grades MARTIAL ARTS AMERICA471-2467 Best After School Program in SebringFREEPICKUP from: Kindergarten Learning Center, Cracker Trail, Sun-N-Lakes, Woodlawn, Fred Wild, Memorial, Hill Gustat, Sebring Middle/High Located on Kenilworth Sebring*Some Restrictions Apply Life Care, Not Day Care EXPIRES 09-07-2010 SERVING CENTRAL FLORIDA FOR 79 YEARS NO DEALER FEES 2010 JEEP LIBERTYSPORT www.WellsMC.com RAMUS 27 between Avon Park and Sebring NO DEALER FEESAVONPARK&SEBRING453-6644€LAKEPLACID&OTHERCITIESTOLLFREE1-888-453-6644 Since 1931 With MSRP$25540SUPPLIER/FLEET $24616 REBATE -2000 ALLY BONUS CASH 1000 $21616NO DEALER FEE #JX022 TRAILERTOWGROUP POPULAR EQUIPMENT GROUP 5YR./100,000MI.

e es have failed to follow e stablished procedures, f ailed to follow Board policy, o r engaged in behaviors s pecifically prohibited by the p ersonnel manual." Both the employee warni ng report and the video conf irm that there is racial tens ion. "It is apparent that there is d ivision among the employe es at the solid waste facility. T here are multiple groups of e mployees that have aligned t hemselves in factions that do n ot cooperate or communic ate with each other. This has b een the situation for a long t ime without interventions f rom management," states t he warning report for both W heeler and Gorman. "We have, as I joke, the B lack Panthers, the Aryan B rotherhood, and the Latino K ings," Gorman said on the r ecording referring to what h e called employee cliques." "Your failure to implement m easures to eliminate operat ional problems by proactive m easures is unacceptable. Y our failure to act has only e xacerbated the problems t hat exist. You have fostered a n environment that reflected f avoritism to a few employe es in work assignments, s cheduling, and overtime," t he report continues. The recordings also show e mployees upset with the s tate of equipment repair at t he landfill, and one unidentified employee complained about having to work in an enclosed machine without air conditioning. "You can't sit inside of a trackhoe with the door shut and work granite powder. It is extremely hot in there," said the unidentified employee. "You cannot stay inside the machine and work the metal at the recycling plant with the door open," the employee continued. But you cannot leave the door open when lifting some metal items overhead, they will come right inside," another employee explained. "Air conditioning is a convenient feature that we try to maintain. Our function here is a landfill...until that air conditioning is repaired, you may have to incur some inconvenience," Wheeler told the employee. "You can only stay enclosed up inside that cab for so long. You were looking for safety things, asking about safety things, and you cannot stay inside of it too long, you get heat exhaustion," the employee said. "The time it takes to unload the trucks with the dust are relatively short. You and the other operators will have to make the assessment. In other cases where we don't have a dust problem, you will have to leave the door open," Wheeler told the employees on the video. "Until the AC is fixed, you have a choice," Wheeler said. The DVDs were produced promptly by the county's Public Information Officer Gloria Rybinski, but a request for proof of consent to be audio recorded was not produced with the DVD.

Pruitt did not conduct a sobriety test, the citizen said, nor did she arrest the driver. Instead, she reportedly had the driver taken home in his own truck by an unknown young male she recruited for the purpose, while she followed behind in her patrol car. Pruitt then gave the unknown young man a lift back to the Gate Station. The report states that Pruitt believed the suspected DUI driver to actually be suffering from diabetes, but criticizes Pruitt for not conducting a sobriety test, for not using an official interpreter, for enlisting an unknown bystander to drive the incapacitated driver home, for not calling Emergency Medical Services, for not turning on her patrol car video camera as required by department policy and for abandoning the driver at his home when she was under the impression he was ill. Because her video camera had not been turned on, Williams wrote, it is impossible to determine exactly what the driver's condition was at the time. Not recording evidence is a violation of department policy. According to the report, Pruitt was asked to "objectively" evaluate her actions of that night. She is reported as saying she should have done DUI testing and she should have called EMS. Following the investigation, Pruitt was found to have violated department policies 11.01.25 (negle ct of duty( and 11.01.105 (jo b knowledge performance). She was also repriman ded for not using the vid eo camera in her patrol ca r. The report says she to ld superiors she had not be en taught its use, although t he report notes she was able to turn the system on and of f. Regarding use of poli ce equipment, Pruitt was cri ticized because while s he was qualified to run rada r, "there has not been a sing le citation written by Offic er Pruitt using radar." Another issue involvin g verbal disrespect to a sup erior was listed in the repo rt as contributing to the term ination. Corporal E. San Migu el stated that Pruitt told hi m he had only received h is promotion, "just to shut m e up." The conversation in question was not witness ed and Pruitt denied sayin g anything to her supervis or at the time. While acknowledgin g the he said/she said aspec ts of the situation, William s wrote, "It is my opinio n that a supervisor's asse rtion, where there are n o potential personal conflic ts apparent, should not be subjected to a scrutiny of proving the details of an alleged event." As a result Pruitt w as cited for the violation of policy 11.01.5, abusiv eness. In a telephone intervie w Friday, Williams said t he termination came as a resu lt of an accumulation of pro blems, not any single even t. "It is one of the most d ifficult situations I've ev er handled in my career," he said. Continued from page 1A "It took a lot of time to d ecide what to do. I was s truggling; it would not have b een fair to the baby," Becky s aid. After talking to her mothe r many times about the situa tion, Becky decided that the b est thing to do was to give h er child up for adoption a fter the birth. "I felt in my heart that it w as right, that the he would h ave a better life," Becky s aid. Becky herself was adopted a t 3 months old. For Becky t he idea of giving her child f or a better life was not comp letely foreign and with her f amily's support and a pproval, Becky was able to d o what she felt was best for h er child. Throughout the pregnancy B ecky met with potential f amilies for her son. "When I met this family I just knew t hat they were the ones for h im," she said. The family that adopted B ecky's son was present at t he birth and gave the child h is name after receiving him. Another one of M cCracken's clients is Terri, w ho also chose adoption for h er child after going through a n unplanned pregnancy. At t he time of her son's adopt ion, Terri was already a m other of two: a 6and 5y ear-old. "I had hardly any commun ication with my son's father w hen I was pregnant. I told h im a few times that he needed to step up and be here for the baby, but he didn't. That's when I started thinking about adoption," Terri said. When she reached her sixth month, Terri found McCracken and began the legal process for adoption. "It's a long process and I was unsure most of the time, but I went through with it," she explained. Terri's son was born last October. Prior to the birth she and the adopting family spoke numerous times. "I caught a lot of heat over this. I already had two children. Everyone was judging and when you're going through something like this you are constantly questioning if you are doing the right thing," Terri said. Terri explained that the pain of the adoption didn't hit her until it was too late and that some days she still cries. "I've made peace with myself and peace with my God. I've been through hell and back but I'm stronger for it," she said. Terri, Becky and McCracken all feel that giving a child up for adoption is a difficult, yet unselfish act. "The adopting families provide all the mom's finances during the pregnancy. They pay the rent, utilities, food, whatever the mom needs while she is pregnant to make sure she is healthy and safe. I also make sure they are going to their doctor appointments and check-ups and I've taken many of them to and from the hospital for delivery if they needed me to," McCracken said. From the outside looking in, many could never understand how these moms come to these decisions, but for McCracken and the moms it is a selfless act of love. "If my womb is working well enough to provide a child, why can't I bless someone else with a beautiful child. It makes me happy to know there is a piece of me out there," Terri said. Becky feels the same way. "Knowing that my baby is with a good family gets me through the day, so I'm happy." "It's a gift. There's so many people who want a family, these women are providing that to people," McCracken said. Little Angels Adoption Agency is in Downtown Sebring at 211 Circle Park South, Suite 5.

After I had my knee replacement surgery, the VA recommended I go to Bowyer PT for my therapy. From the minute I walked in, I felt the caring of the staff. I hold the utmost respect for my therapist, Keith. He knew my limits & was able to motivate me to make improvements despite my pain. I was able to see the gains I made after each session. I felt the whole staff was behind my recovery. After my sessions for my knee, I started on therapy for chronic back pain, upon approval from the VA Humana. I was asked where I wanted to attend therapy. There was no hesitation on my part, I chose Bowyer PT. I cannot thank Keith & his staff enough for all their help and motivation.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING "As much as you work on things and think you are improving, you just don't know until you get into a game," Sebring head coach Jared Hamlin said. After Friday night's 55-6, season-opening win over Lake Placid, Hamlin now knows he's got a diverse and potent offense and a stout defense which bodes well as the season progresses. Right from the start, things were clicking for the Blue Streaks, as a 55-yard drive resulted in a 12yard touchdown pass from quarterback Matt Grubb to wide out Devin Clarke a little more than three minutes in. After the Dragons went three and out, Sebring struck again with Grubb connecting with Jaquan Williams on a 40-yard strike to get it down to the five. Damion Thompson rumbled four yards to the one before Grubb kept it himself for the score. Lake Placid couldn't get their own ball rolling, going three-and-out on their next two possessions, though the defense stepped up in stopping one Sebring drive. But the quick-strike capability was seen when Grubb zipped a pass down the middle on a 50-yard touchdown pass to Evan Lewis to make it 21-0 as the first quarter ended. The Dragons got some forward momentum as quarterback Kirk Veley rushed for five yards and freshman A.J. Gayle broke a run for seven yards. But Anthony Powell soon got inside position on a Veley pass and picked it off, giving Sebring possession at it's own 20. Ashort pass to Aaron Hankerson went for a 12-yard gain before Grubb sent a screen to Clarke along the sideline. Clarke then used his blazing speed to outrun the Dragon defenders for a 63yard score. Lke Placid answered right back though, as on the ensuing kickoff, Nick Peragine got around the left edge and sprinted for an 80-yard touchdown return. But any elation was short lived as the Streaks then went on a 10-play, 69-yard drive, culminating in a Grubb to Clarke connection that made it 34-6 with 3:50 left in the half. Sebring would squeeze in another score before the break, with Grubb hitting Williams on a 40-yard gain before Clarke grabbed a fade in the front corner of the end zone for a five-yard score. The second half didn't g o much better for the Drago ns as, after a three-and-ou t, Thompson took a hando ff and broke out for a 35-ya rd touchdown, making it 48 -6 and bringing on the runnin g clock for the remainder of the contest. The final score of t he night came on a Trini Sutto n SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Sunday, September 5, 2010 News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE The Lady Red Devils erupt in celebration after knocking off Lake Placid Thursday night.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK Mistakes a nd turnovers caused the A von Park Red Devils to d rop their season opener to F rostproof's Bulldogs 33-6 F riday night at Joe Franza S tadium. "Mental mistakes would t ake away our momentum. W hen you try too much, this i s what happens," said A von Park head coach A ndy Bonjokian. The Devils strugg led on offense, picki ng up just nine total y ards in the first half d ue to turnovers. Avon Park's offense c oughed up the ball five t imes before the half with t wo interceptions, two fumb les, and a bad decision on a p unt return. Red Devil quarterback TK M iller completed just two of h is nine attempts for a total o f 15 yards, and rushed for n egative four yards, an indic ator that the offense could n ot get the coordination n eeded to move the ball cons istently. "We need execution," Bonjokian said."Things are not going in our direction right now." Despite the poor performance, Bonjokian has decided to stay with his current offensive system. "No, we are not going to change what we are doing right now," he said. "We are going to have to execute, and we need to do a better job getting ready. This could have been worse, there were some opportunities." Overall, the Devils would only rack up 34 total yards offense, struggling every down with completing assignments. "We need execution," Bonjokian said. On the other side of the ball, Frostproof's Zack Jenkins led the offense, completing 6 of 12 attempts for 44 yards passing and 14 yards on six carries. Bonjokian takes his Devils on the road next Friday to face Okeechobee at 7 p.m. Dawgs down Red Devils By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK The Avon P ark Lady Devils netted an i mportant district win at h ome over Lake Placid on T hursday, taking down the L ady Dragons 25-22, 14-25, 1 1-25, 25-16 and 15-11. "It seemed like everything w as going wrong in the midd le," said Avon Park's Head C oach Stephanie Devlin after t he game. "I told the girls t hat we could beat this team, I knew we could. This was a p ivotal game." The crowd helped the D evils out near the end, taki ng on the role of cheerleader a nd encouraging the Avon P ark spikers with chanting a nd praise. "The crowd helped us out a l ot. There were a lot of f riends and family there, and i t feels better when you know t hey are rooting for you," D evlin added. "Avon Park definitely c ame out to win tonight," s aid Lake Placid's Head C oach Linette Wells. "They w anted it more than we did. W e made a few errors, it was o urs to win, and we didn't." Lake Placid's Brittany Collison, who doubles as the team's Libero, served up some pain for the Lady Devils, according to Wells, as did Taylor Miller. "Our serves were right on. Taylor had had 18 serves overall and four aces. And Brittany had a couple of great runs. We just made a few errors," Wells said. Another standout for the Dragons was Alana Nielander, who was able to keep the plays alive with an eye-popping 26 digs on the evening. For the Lady Devils, Zakia Hart racked up 18 digs while Teresa Devlin picked up 13 digs of her own and teammate Ebony Gammage slammed out 14 kills. Avon Park stays at home to face Tenoroc on Tuesday, Sept. 7. Lake Placid topped the Titans in four games last Tuesday and now stand at 1-1 in district play. The Dragons will look to get back into the district win column Tuesday with a home match against Ft. Meade.

"We had a m atch last year where we w on the frst game 25-9 and t hen had the team come back a nd beat us in the second g ame. The girls really kept t heir focus and intensity up t onight." The serve receive, which w as problematic in Tuesday's l oss at Winter Haven, r ebounded nicely for the S treaks. "They only had three aces t onight," Sinness said. Winter Haven must have h ad about 23 aces Tuesday. S am Jansen and Bianca N ortelus did a great job with t he serve receive tonight and a re only getting better. "We're still new, with reall y just one week of playing t ogether," she continued. We only have one person r eturning in her position and e veryone else is getting used t o new positions, new teamm ates. Even with that we w ere right there with Winter H aven.

Sebring hits the road next week, heading to Hardee to face the Wildcats while Lake Placid looks to turn things around with its'home opener against Celebration. Continued from 1B Sebring heads to Hardee By JOSEPH WHITE Associated PressNyjer Morgan's wild week has landed him an eight-game suspension, one of nine punishments handed out Friday by Major League Baseball following a brawl between Washington Nationals and Florida Marlins. MLB suspended Nationals outfielder Morgan and fined him an undisclosed amount for three separate incidents over the past week. Friday's penalty is in addition to a seven-game suspension he received Aug. 25 that is currently under appeal. Six players, both managers and a coach were cited after a review of Wednesday night's odd and ugly game in Miami, won 16-10 by the Marlins. Florida pitcher Chris Volstad was suspended for six games, pitcher Alex Sanabia for five, first baseman Gaby Sanchez for three, and manager Edwin Rodriguez for one. Volstad and Rodriguez also were fined, as was pitcher Jose Veras. All the Marlins players who were issued suspensions plan to appeal. Same for the Nationals. "Whether I believe it's fair or not doesn't really matter," Sanchez said. "You're going to get punished, especially when a brawl like that happens." For Washington, pitcher Doug Slaten and third base coach Pat Listach were suspended for three games, and manager Jim Riggleman for two games. Riggleman and Listach also were fined. Listach's ban was trimmed to two games after Washington asked MLB to review his actions again. "I'm a little surprised at (the suspensions and fines) overall," Riggleman said. "I thought they were a little heavy, certainly heavier than I expected. However, I think Major League Baseball is also sending out a message with these suspensions and especially with the fines, and that's that it doesn't want bench-clearing brawls in this sport." All but two of the suspensions were scheduled to begin Friday. Sanabia's suspension was set to begin Wednesday in order to avoid overlapping with fellow pitcher Volstad's, and Listach's suspension is scheduled to begin Sunday to avoid overlapping with Riggleman's. Rodriguez was serving his suspension Friday, with bench coach Brandon Hyde tabbed to manage Florida against Atlanta. Rodriguez said Volstad would next start on Tuesday, and Sanchez didn't expect the appeals to be heard until the Marlins get this visit Washington next weekend. Bench coach John McLaren was in charge of the Nationals for Friday night's game at Pittsburgh. But the focus is overwhelmingly on Morgan. His current spate of notoriety began Aug. 21, when he threw a ball at a fan in the stands in Philadelphia. The appeal of his sevengame suspension for that misdeed is scheduled to be heard Tuesday. "The perception of him, the last month or so, is not a good one," Marlins outfielder Logan Morrison said. Then, last Saturday, Morgan ran over St. Louis Cardinals catcher Bryan Anderson in the bottom of the eighth inning at Nationals Park, even though Anderson didn't have the ball. Morgan neglected to touch home plate in the process and was called out. Riggleman bench ed Morgan the next day f or what the manager call ed "unprofessional" play, an d Morgan publicly disagre ed with Riggleman's decision On Tuesday, Morgan r an over another catcher, th is time Florida's Brett Haye s, while attempting to sco re from second on a groun d ball in the 10th inning. Hayes held onto the ba ll to tag Morgan out, but t he catcher separated his le ft shoulder on the play. The Nationals we re expecting retaliation o n Wednesday, and it came. Volstad hit Morgan with a pitch in the fourth innin g, but Morgan prompt ly answered by stealing secon d and third, even though t he Nationals were trailing 1 43. Volstad then threw h is first pitch of the six th behind Morgan, setting off a fight. Morgan charged t he mound took a swing at Volstad, but Sanchez quic kly arrived on the scene an d clothes-lined Morga n, knocking off Morgan's ba tting helmet and sending hi m to the ground. Morgan, Volsta d, Rodriguez and Veras we re ejected. Morgan was loudly boo ed when he raised his arms to egg on the crowd as he w as escorted off the field. "I can't look back at it now and say I would do an ything different," Sanch ez said. "I wouldn't have. I' m out there trying to prote ct my pitcher." Later in the game, Slat en and Riggleman were eject ed after Sanchez was hit with a pitch with two outs in t he seventh. After the gam e, Riggleman backed Morga n, saying it was OK for t he Marlins to throw at the ou tfielder once but not twice. Morgan gets 8 games for Nats-Marlins brawl

Jennifer A.Wolf,P.A.-C. Medicare and almost all insurances accepted MyFWC.comThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) passed a new rule Wednesday in Pensacola Beach that will extend zonal crossbow seasons by a month, thereby running concurrently with archery season, beginning July 2011. The FWC received requests from Florida hunters who want more crossbow-hunting opportunities not only more hunting days, but also to be allowed to take deer of either sex, which is legal in many other states, including Georgia and Alabama. Because of the request, the FWC checked with Florida's hunters through an online poll, and more than 70 percent of those who responded supported increasing crossbow opportunities on private lands. The new rule adds 30 days to the crossbow season in zones A, B and C, and it adds 33 days in Zone D, thereby making it coincide with the archery season. Starting with the 20112012 hunting season, any hunter with a hunting license, deer permit and crossbow permit will be able to get in the woods a month early on private lands and use a crossbow (or a bow) to take deer of either sex. This rule is intended to give hunters more opportunities and enable youths and others who have difficulty using a vertical bow to have more hunting days, thereby helping to recruit and retain more people into the tradition of hunting. The Commission also passed another rule that limits the methods of take allowed during spring turkey hunts on FWC-managed areas beginning, with the next spring turkey season (March 2011). However, all legal bows and crossbows are still allowed. The new rule restricts firearms to shotguns and muzzleloading shotguns only, using shot no larger than No. 2. All rifles, pi stols, buckshot and slugs a re now prohibited durin g spring turkey hunts o n wildlife management are as (WMAs), except on J oe Budd WMA, Raiford WM A and Santa Fe Swam p Wildlife and Environment al Area. On these three area s, muzzleloading rifles w ill still be allowed, becau se spring turkey hunting o n these areas is restricted to primitive guns only. This rule came about aft er public-land turkey hunte rs and others expressed safe ty concerns, prompting t he FWC to ask Florida 's hunters, again through an online survey. More than 75 percent of those who responded su pported the restriction o n firearms during sprin g turkey hunts on WMAs. "If we can save one li fe by passing this rule, it's ce rtainly worth doing," sa id Commissioner Ro n Bergeron. FWC extends crossbow season; restricts firearms on turkey hunts By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe Avon Park "Wet" Devils got their season off in strong fashion at a trimeet Thursday at Hardee. Facing off against the host Wildcats and the Frostproof Bulldogs, the Devil boys took first overall while the girls placed third. Despite the girls finish, Kiri Crommett showed she'll be winning her share of events this year as she won both the 200 Free and 100 Breaststroke. Mitchell Guerndt stepped up, as expected, with the junior winning the 100 Free and Breast while also anchoring the winning 200 Free Relay team with Kyle Jahna, Erik Parker and Angel Rosario. "They made that eve nt look easy," coach Mars ha May said. Parker, a sophomore, al so picked up a win in the 20 0 Free for Avon Park.

Some experts have predicted that the cost of electricity will skyrocket. And since residential air conditioning is one of the biggest users of electricity,the new Stimulus Package contains a substancial incentive for upgrading your old air conditioner to a new high efficiency model. USE IT OR LOSE IT? It seems as though you are going to payŽfor a new,more efficient,air conditioner whether you get one or not. If you replace your old system you might be eligible for up to $1,500 in tax benefits. And,if you wait too long,you may lose the tax credit,and pay a much higher utility bill. In 2010,a new law has made most existing air conditioners effectively obsolete! This law bans the manufacturing of air conditioners using the refrigerant R-22. Therefore,the cost of the refrigerant has begun to skyrocket,which means your old air conditioner becomes very expensive to repair. YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF When you add it up,you owe it to yourself to find out the facts. See how much tax relief you can get. See how much you can lower your electric usage.

S. 27 Lake Jackson ARTS& LEISURE Special to the News-SunSEBRING Art and cult ure can only improve the e conomic impact on busin esses and enhance the perf ormance of students in the e ducational system. "The arts and culture are e ssential to draw new busin esses in Highlands C ounty," Fred Leavitt, presid ent of the newly reorgani zed Heartland Cultural A lliance, said. The county is s tarving for new businesses t hat pay higher wages. Businesses that pay well a re saying the availability of a rts and culture is a major f actor in their decision to l ocate. Recent research e stablishes that businesses w ith the higher paying jobs a re moving to areas that h ave a strong arts and cult ure community." Unfortunately, during t hese hard economic times, it i s always the arts and culture t hat get cut from most gove rnment budgets. "It's an easy target for c uts, but it hinders the count y. We are shooting ourselves i n the foot," Leavitt said. Bruce and Joy Rogers, o wners of Brewster's Coffee H ouse in Sebring, recogn ized the importance of art a nd blended it with their b usiness. They now have an a rt gallery featured inside t heir establishment. The art i s locally generated. The business has been in o peration for five years but j ust recently located to its c urrent spot at 2191 U.S. 27 N orth, Sebring, in Central P laza, which is just south of T he Home Depot. The R ogers'started doing art s hows last November and have had three since then. The artwork changes after each show so it keeps the customers coming back to see what is new. "It not only increased our sales, but we created an art show at the coffee shop where people can come in and relax and absorb the artwork," Bruce Rogers said. "Sometimes when you just walk by, it's just a pretty picture. We want people to appreciate the artwork." Bruce Rogers also added that he has sold several pieces of art for the artists by having it on display. Displaying artwork was not Bruce Rogers'forte but with the help of local artists and the Heartland Cultural Alliance, he received counseling on how to install track lighting to spotlight the art and how to properly display the art on the wall. By being a member of the alliance, Brewster's Coffee House receives these services free. Although they put some investment into the lighting. "We are opening up a granting process for our members," Leavitt said. The alliance can help its business members to incorporate art and culture. Leavitt said the alliance is comprised of a spectrum of art, theater, dance, music and art education organizations, as well as individual artists, writers, designers, therapists, galleries, health care institutions and business leaders. The alliance, a not-forprofit organization dedicated to promoting art and culture in Highlands County, regrouped on April 15 and it is preparing to hit the county with a media campaign to show how important art and culture really is to the economics growth of this community. Although the organization has been formed since 2001, it fell apart in the past few years when past presidents had health issues. Leavitt, a photographer, digital artist and president of Primal Connection, joined efforts with 15 other arts and culture organizations in the county to jump start the Heartland Cultural Alliance. Vice president of community relations is Sue Lewis. Vice president of finance is Dr. Charlotte Pressler. Secretary is Marjorie O'Meara. Vice president of membership is Gail Leavitt. Other board members are Judy Rosbury and Betty Ford-Smith. "The Heartland Cultural Alliance is reinventing itself," Leavitt said. "We are now targeting toward awakening the county to the importance of arts and culture economically as well as its benefits to the health care industry. We also want to educate the public about the importance of art to academic achievement." Leavitt said that students with an art background are outperforming their peers who have had no experience in art. "Some universities are now denying access to students who have had no art classes," he said. The Florida Arts & Culture industry gives back a minimum of $5 in local and state government revenue for every $1 invested, Leavitt pointed out. "Who wouldn't want that kind of return on their money?" Leavitt asked. The organization recently opened the Heartland Cultural Alliance Gallery of Fine Art is at the Sebring Airport. There is now an intimate space in the lobby designated for local artists. Jim Fitch, of Sebring, is now exhibiting his multidimensional art there. Aformal opening of the airport gallery is scheduled from 4:30-6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24. The alliance is coordinating Highlands County's first themed art show, "Spill Your Heart Out." It will feature local artists expressing thei r views and feelings on the Gulf oil spill. The artwork will be on display at 112 North Ridgewood Drive, Sebring, in a building owne d by Gene Brenner. The store front will be loaned to the HCAand converted into a gallery just for the exhibit. The show will open from 5 -8 p.m. Friday for the Gallery Walk. The art will be on di splay during the Sebring Thunder Regional Car Show on Sept. 17 and 18, The Heartland Idol Finale and the Seventh Annual Run to the Heartland on Oct. 1-3. Leavitt pointed out that there are a lot of talented local artists who want to have their work on display but there is just not enough gallery space or businesses willing to open up their doors to feature their work. The alliance is willing and ready to match up artists with its members. "You just need to be a member," Leavitt emphasized. Memberships are $5 for students; $25 for individual artists; $35 for supporter of arts and culture; $50 for non-profit organizations; $100 for businesses, corporations, organizations and governmental entities; and $750 lifetime patron of the arts.

Phon e 452-0088.PLACESTOWORSHIP Four guys who enjoy the hard work they do to serve the citizens of Highlands County are on the job keeping 37 boat ramps in good condition. For those w ho enjoy recreating on our b eautiful lakes, having safe a nd well-kept boat ramps is a n important issue. Ron M cClure, Steve Becker, Rex C addell and Guy Culp all h ave a great work ethic and a ttitude when it comes to g etting the job done. They love to work, you c an really count on these g uys and they never argue. T hey're good guys and we a re so blessed to have them," R on McClure, Parks and M aintenance supervisor, said o f his crew. The entire process of i nstalling a boat ramp takes a bout a month. The first step i s the preparation. The muck, d irt and what ever else may b e lying on the lake's bottom w here the submerged portion o f the ramp will be, needs to be dug out. "You've got to get in there and dig out that's the hard part. You've got to get the right angle," said Caddell, one of the crew that maintains these ramps. Once all the digging is done, pipe must be placed at a 6.7degree angle, then a rock bed is spread at a minimum of 1 12 feet deep. The rocks are then smoothed out by a piece of railroad iron by dragging it over the surface. Once the submerged portion of the ramp is prepared, it's time to prepare the form board on dry land. The same angle used in the submerged portion is also used on the land. The slab, which is 14 by 30 feet, and 6 inches thick is poured once the forms are prepared. Then they wait for ten days for the concrete to cure and dry. Once all that is done, they push the dried slab in the water with a tractor. Then they form an approach slab, also 14-by-30 and 6 inches thick. Once the form is built, they pour concrete into it. After the concrete dries, the forms are stripped away and the submerged portion of the ramp is stabilized with rock on each side. I was fortunate enough to watch the "pushing" portion of the process. On a beautiful August morning, I met the crew at the Lake Lelia (better known as Gator Lake by the locals) and watched them work. It was amazing how that huge slab slid so easily into the form they had prepared in the water. These guys know what they're doing. Rex shared that they "hooked up with the state guys from Florida Fish and Wildlife when they were at Lake Letta." According to Ron, the two agencies shared ideas. "They had some great practices that they shared with us and we gave them some of our tips and ideas. We basically put our heads together and came up with this very successful technique. In the past, these boat ramps have blown out, but now because of these new practices, we expect them to last at least 20 years." Rex proudly stated, "These used to be ten feet wide and most were done 3 0 years ago. They weren't ve ry far in the water. Now, when you push a 14by 30-foot slab in the water; now you've got something. We' re doing a quality job now. This is the fourth one we'v e done this way. With this on e, we had to take the old slab out because we couldn't build on it. What happens i s the concrete that is already in place is at the wrong angle; it may have humps i n it. It has to be straight." Local's help out by talking to the crew and letting them know which boat ramps need fixing the most Rex told me that "we listen to the local fishermen; they let us know where the wors t ones are. It helps us prioritize. We don't want people tearing up their trailers and equipment by trying to launch on a bad ramp." Fro m that word of mouth and the ir own inspections, the crew i s working on prioritizing all the ramps and getting them in shape. The funding for this eno rmous task comes from the Florida Boating Improvement Program County's boat ramps getting much-needed repairs News From The Watershed Corine Burgess See BOAT, page 13B Courtesy photoS S t t e e v v e e B B e e c c k k e e r r d d r r i i v v e e s s t t h h e e t t r r a a c c t t o o r r w w h h i i l l e e R R e e x x C C a a d d d d e e l l l l a a n n d d G G u u y y C C u u l l p p h h o o l l d d o o n n a a s s t t h h e e r r a a m m p p i i s s p p u u s s h h e e d d i i n n t t o o t t h h e e w w a a t t e e r r

N o matter who you are or where yo u are on life's journey, you're we lcome here.PLACESTOWORSHIP CROSSWORDSOLUTION Aries (March 21-April 20) Aries, s ay what you need to say before it is t oo late. If you think you have probl ems, it's best to talk them over when t he opportunity arises, possibly this w eek. Taurus (April 21-May 21) You s eem to be living the same moments o ver and over again, Taurus. Why not c hange things up a bit with a little v ariety? You just might enjoy the c hange. Gemini (May 22-June 21) G emini, you're in a domestic mood t his week and could find yourself s pending more time than normal in the k itchen. Experiment with all types of r ecipes. Cancer(June 22-July 22) C ancer, give it your best shot because t hat's all you can do this week, when t he deck seems to be stacked against y ou. You may find that Lady Luck is o n your side. Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Leo, open y our mind and see things with a new p erspective. Only then can you wrap y our head around a situation that has b een causing you grief for some time. Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Virgo, just when you thought you were down and out, circumstances change and good things start coming your way this week. Share the news soon. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) It's time to seal up your wallet, Libra. The spending has gotten out of control, and you could find yourself in some financial trouble if you don't curtail your spending habits. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Scorpio, changing your perception of a person is easier said than done. Once your mind is made up, you have a hard time changing the way you feel, but give it a shot this week. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Sagittarius, sneaking around behind someone's back is a recipe for trouble. If you are thinking of doing something underhanded, it's probably a good idea to reconsider. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Capricorn, bury the hatchet and make up with the person with whom you have had an ongoing strained relationship. As you get older you will find old wounds heal quicker. Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) It's time to take the plunge, Aquarius. Instead of being shy about making a big purchase, you simply have to get it done already. Others will support your efforts. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Pisces, it's hard to be at your best when you aren't feeling well. If you've been under the weather, rally the strength to go on.

The country music duo c losed out a 20-year career at N ashville's Bridgestone A rena on Thursday night w ith their 1991 debut single, Brand New Man," during t he encore.

Kix Brooks said early in t he night, "This isn't a funeral. We did show up to party." They ran through many of their 23 No. 1 hits, including "Neon Moon," 'My Maria," 'Red Dirt Road" and "Boot Scootin'Boogie." Reba McEntire made the only guest appearance, singing a few lines during "Cowgirls Don't Cry." Both Brooks and Ronnie Dunn joked about the reasons for their split. Brooks blamed it on his crazy concert ideas, like picking old songs and hoping the crowd would help if he forgot the words. Dunn said he was jealous of the cowboy hats Brooks got to wear all these years. Brooks & Dunn end 20-year career at Nashville show

Labor Day has traditionally celebrated the labor force, especially blue-collar workers. However, according to statistics, the local unemployment rate keeps rising.These are hard times for both blue collar and white collar workers whose skills are not in demand as before. We have seen this up close and personally with a number of family members. Most households have been affected in some way by the economic downturn. Yet, with every bump in the road that throws us off balance, there's a redeeming quality to steady us. As our attitudes shift and embrace the desire to learn from the experience, we'll roll with the punches and be flexible in changing times. We can develop wiser, more discerning attitudes toward money management and reverse the downturn into an upswing for the future. This new'economy caused my husband, Ken, and me to re-examine our budget plan because of unexpected increases in health and homeowners insurance that were not in our control. But our reevaluation to make up for the shortfall pointed us to some sloppy math that we thought we had under control. I kicked myself over and over until a new plan grew out of better understanding. Each of us must not only live within our means; but, beneath them to leave room for saving.Savings help cushion the fall in rocky terrain. Not rushing into a purchase is wisdom in practice.I look back with regret at purchases made under pressure from a sales person or from real or imagined time constraints. Let time be on your side for discernment; doing your homework; and, not being impulsive.Some counsel may also be wise. But, most importantly, pray. God wants us to pray about everything. "Pray without ceasing," as seen in 1 Thessalonians 5: 17, NKJV, doesn't mean we're on our knees all day.Contrarily, it means we have an attitude toward God that seeks his counsel at all times.Even when browsing, shopping, or considering a purchase. When men and women are equipped with God's wisdom in managing finances, the labor force will revive itself with renewed respect as we work together with due diligence to get it back on its feet. Remember that God supplies the health and strength to work. He is ultimately our Provider; as it says in Philippians 4: 19, NKJV, "And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus."Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent and an award-winning writer. Question of the W eek: What do t oday's children s eriously lack that c hildren in the 1 950s and before e njoyed in abund ance? To assist the reade r in figuring out t he answer before it i s revealed in the l ast sentence of this c olumn, here are a s et of clues mostly t aken from the reall ife childhood a dventures of yours truly, a r epresentative member of h is generation: Clue: My parents d ivorced before I was 3, n ecessitating that my mothe r get a job outside the h ome. During my preschool y ears, I was one of the s mall minority of children w ho attended what would t oday be called daycare. In t his happy place, our teache rs fostered creative activit y. They taught us nothing a cademic. Clue: In the course of my e ntire childhood, I engaged i n but two adult-directed a fter-school activities. I w as a Cub Scout for a year a nd didn't like it. I played L ittle League for a year and d idn't like it. In both cases, t he source of my dislike w as well-intentioned adults. M y buddies and I much p referred pick-up games w here we ran the show. Clue: When I began s chool, my mother made it c lear that my homework w as my responsibility. She h elped me figure out the a nswer to the occasional p roblem, but I was free to d etermine when I did my h omework, in what order, i n what posture, and w hether the radio in my r oom was on or off. I don't t hink my mother ever asked m e if I had homework or h ad finished it. Clue: My mother ignored m e most of the time. Do n ot confuse being ignored w ith being neglected. I was n ot neglected. Mom left me a lone to figure out how I w as going to spend my time. She didn't talk to me much, either. Days might go by when no more than the occasional pleasantry would be exchanged between us. Nonetheless, I always knew that if I truly needed her, she would be there. Clue: I did not watch television until I was eleven years old. Needless to say, I played no video games, had no cell phone, and computers did not "assist" my education. I used the library and wrote my assignments with either pen or pencil. Clue: I had a relationship with my mother, but I was not in a relationship with my mother. When she and her friends gathered in our small abode, I could be seen, but I was instructed to take care lest I be heard. As a consequence of this boundary, I would sit and listen to them talk about things I mostly didn't understand. As a further consequence, I aspired to become an adult. Do today's children aspire to become adults? I'll answer that: Why should they? They are both seen and heard from the earliest of ages. There's no mystery any longer. Adults and adulthood constitute the Big Whatever. Very few of today's children enjoy any of the above. They are overseen, supervised, directed, and micromanaged from morning until night by wellintentioned adults who claim to care about children but seem to know nothing about childhood. And so, the variable most lacking in the lives of children who currently live in the Land of the Free is freedom itself. Family psychologist John Rosemond answers parents' questions on his website at www.rosemond.com. DearAbby: My fiance and I are preparing for our wedding next spring. This is the first marriage for both of us. We are well-established in our careers and have a nice house with everything we need in it. Abby, my fiance and I lost our fathers to cancer within the last few years. One of our biggest regrets is that we never got to meet each other's father, and they won't be at our wedding with everyone else we love. Is there a polite way to ask our guests to donate to the American Cancer Society, their local hospice or a charity of their choice, instead of buying us things we don't need? It would mean far more to us knowing that some other dad who might have been lost to cancer will be able to walk his daughter down the aisle on her special day. Spring 2011 Bride DearSpring 2011 Bride: While I commend you for wanting to help others whose lives have been touched by cancer, what you have in mind must be done "delicately" so no rules of etiquette are broken. No mention of gifts (or money) should be made on (or accompany) your wedding invitations. However, it is customary for those who plan to attend to inquire about where the couple is registered or what they might need. At that point, it's permissible to say (verbally) that a donation to the American Cancer Society or to hospice, etc., would be appreciated for the reasons you stated in your letter. And one more thought: Although your fathers-in-law died before you could meet them, please don't think they won't be at your celebration. Because they are in your hearts, they will not only be present at your wedding, they'll be with you always. DearAbby: About a year ago I was in the process of separating from my husband. I started looking for a place of my own, but after I found one, my husband said he wanted to "work things out." While we were separated we slept in different rooms. During this time I met another man, "Craig." He knew I was married and I told him about the situation with my husband. Craig and I have not been intimate or even kissed. We have carried on inappropriate conversations via phone, e-mail and texting, and we have sent each other pictures through e-mail. My husband and I have now reconciled, but I have been stringing Craig along on the chance that, if my marriage doesn't work out, he'll be there. I feel guilty about this. Is what Craig an d I have done considered a form of cheating? What should I do? Hedging My Bets in Californ ia DearHedging: Of cours e it's a form of cheating! You know that on some level or you wouldn't be feeling guilty. If you really want your marriage to work, you'll stop hedging your bets and devote yourself fully to it. You'll also level with Craig, tell him you an d your husband have reconciled, ask him not to call yo u again and delete his texts and e-mails. If you don't, your husband could find them and your marriage WILLbe over. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.
