Spill Your Heart Out exhibit debuts By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK The Avon Park City Council voted 5-0 on Monday night to hire Bruce C. Behrens as city manager after months of searching. "I hope I live up to your expectations," Behrens said to applause from both the council and from the audience. Behrens was not the council's first (or second) choice, but seemed eager to get started on the job. "I am ready to come on board next Monday if you want," Behrens told the council Monday night. But I can understand if you want me to wait until Oct. 1. With your permission, I will be here on and off no matter when you want me to start." Behrens was selected after negotiations with James Coleman broke down last week, and second choice Gregory Wood, had withdrawn after taking a ne w job. Behrens'contract, which the counc il approved through unanimous vot e, states that he will be paid $75,000 p er year, be eligible for a yearly raise or bonus, will get 10 days vacation and 1 0 days sick leave starting Oct. 1 and a city vehicle to use.

The meeting had been called to address the issue of funding recreation for the southern third of the county and the expense of providing and maintaining facilities for the Lake Placid area. Most of the users of Lake Placid's facilities actually live outside the city limits, in the subdivisions around the town itself. But, according to town leaders, the county government has sharply cut back its financial contribution to the running and maintaining of the parks and ball fields, putting an unfair, and unmanageable, burden on the town.. "We thought we were going to have a meeting with the county administrator and the appropriate county staff, at an appropriate venue," Komasa said. Instead, Helms met with Komasa, Tuck and representatives from Sebring and Avo n Park over a meal at R ed Lobster. "The county was unwillin g to even discuss (the issue) ," Komasa said. "I have nothin g I can share with you." Komasa said Helms to ld him he wouldn't address an ything until after the new fisc al year. Town council mem ber Steve Bastardi sa id that the town cou ld not, and would no t, pay more than its fa ir share to recreation. The council al so expressed frustratio n with Coun ty Commissioner Do n Bates, who it felt w as not doing enough to help. "Helms doesn 't want to make a dec ision without pressu re from the commission," cou ncil member Ray Royce sai d. "We feel strongly that (Bate s) has to go to Helms and ma ke him make a decision, or put it on the agenda. "Avon Park has received an unfair amount of dollars fro m the county, and it doesn 't want to give up a penn y. About a third of the county is represented here. How is t he county going about dividin g the money? I know that's a bit strong, but that's how I feel."

Answering God's call By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comAVON PARK Pastor Jeremy Hurd is one of the youth pastors at Community Bible Church in Avon Park. He has been a minister there for six years and has become a huge part of the congregation and the lives of those he ministers and mentors. Hurd and his wife, Melvina, have recently announced their decision to take a mission trip to Jucuapa, El Salvador. Both Jeremy and Melvina are graduates of Circleville Bible College. Jeremy also is a graduate of the Asbury Theological Seminary. The family hopes to spread their message of God to the children and all those in need by spending a year in the country. "I will be a youth minister there and support their ministry," Jeremy Hurd said. He is a member of the World Gospel Mission. The Hurd family is hoping to raise $32,000 to cover the cost of the airfare, lodging, personal expenses, visas, and insurance for the full year. Hurd announced the family's plan to take the trip to their congregation two weeks ago and is in the beginning stages of raising funds for the mission.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Feelings occasionally ran so high during the regular town council meeting Monday night that it was hard to hear the council members over the audience buzz. The issue drawing the most reaction was the proposed civic center/town council chamber/hurricane shelter complex. The main problem is one of funding. Put simply, the project is more than the town can afford at the moment. Two separate grants and funds put aside by the town for the project total about $1.5 million. As currently designed, however, the complex would cost about $2 million. This means the architects have been scrambling to find ways to bring the project into budget range. As a result a smaller building is now being considered 13,800 square feet as opposed to the original 16,800 feet. This caused concern, however, as a smaller complex might not meet the town's needs or fulfill its purpose. For example, part of the plan had been to provide a venue for high school graduation ceremonies. The new downsized plan would leave an auditorium too small to be used for graduations. Because the smaller building would need to be expanded in the future, the site of the complex became an issue. The original site, behind Publix along Hillcrest Avenue, is just under three acres, landlocking the complex from the start. Another site, near the high school and Grigsby Road is nearly 12 acres in size and would allow for expansion. But many people expressed concerns about building a complex that will need to expanded even before it is completed. "I'm just afraid we'll build something we don't like," said Mayor John Holbrook, who has mixed feelings about the project. Council member Ray Royce, a strong proponent of the complex, said, "The only real opportunity to build this in the near future is to use the $1.2 million (in grant funding). We need to do what we have to do to move forward." City Clerk Arlene Tuck was asked to schedule a special meeting in two weeks to allow the architects time to address the issues.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING The Sun N L ake Improvement District s elected former County A dministrator Michael Wright a s its interim general manager a t Friday's meeting. "I am extremely pleased t hat Mike was available," said b oard member Dick Miller. "I t hink he is definitely good fit f or the district. He is certainly q ualified, and he and his wife g enuinely care for the comm unity. "When Mike was at the c ounty, I always found him to b e accessible and objective. His wealth and breadth of experience is outstanding," Miller said. Wright's appointment follows the Aug. 31 resignation of Al Grieshaber Jr., who left on a conditional resignation after being asked to resign by board president David Halbig. "He decided to take the high road after we had a discussion last week. We have not been seeing eye to eye, so to speak," Halbig said about Grieshaber's resignation. "I think this is the best resolution, I suggested to him that he should resign rather than me making the motion to terminate him. That gives him some benefits that a termination would not give him," Halbig said. Wright's contract was terminated by the Highlands County Board of County Commission on June 22 after a 3-2 vote. Commissioner Edgar Stokes said that he made the motion because employee morale was low and that Wright did not fit into the community. Ileana Martinez, the district's human resources officer, handled the day-to-day decisions for Sun 'N Lake since she was named interim manager during the board meeting in August. The district is paying Wright $8,500 per month in a consulting contract without benefits that has a two-week termination clause. Wright had not returned phone calls at press time.

We welcome Mr. Behrens a nd wish him good fortune. H e's going to need it working h ere. We say this because the city c ouncil went about its city m anager search with its usual p rofessional diligence. Sarah Adelt left the position o f city manager on Nov. 23, 2 009. The city charter r equires a new manager to be i n place within 180 days. That m eant the council had until M ay 16, 2010 to find a r eplacement. Maria Sutherland, the city's project manager, agreed to serve as interim manager until that was done. The council decided to use the services of the well regarded Range Riders, a volunteer group of retired city and county administrators who are part of the Florida City and County Management Association. By Feb. 17, 2010 the Range Riders had delivered a list of 59 applicants, short-listing 11 of them. At the Feb. 22 regular meeting, the council narrowed the list to 29 candidates including a top 10 list, but at the March 8 meeting the entire Range Rider list is rejected. "I did not see anyone on there that was a fit for Avon Park," Mayor Sharon Schuler said at the time. Two weeks later, with the 180-day deadline approaching, Sutherland is made city manager with the understanding the appointment is temporary. Nothing happens for a month. Then on May 9, the council decides to create a local committee to conduct a second search. Time passes, but the committee assembles a list of applicants, and interviews are conducted. When it is suggested time should be put aside for citizen involvement before making a choice Schuler says, "We could sit here forever and talk about a city manager and never move on. We cannot sit here forever and spin our wheels." On Aug. 9, the council offers the position to James Coleman, a former city manager for Williston, and Sutherland is told to open negotiations with him. On Sept. 8, Schuler calls a special meeting of the council to stop negotiations with Coleman. In his contract counter-offer, he has included additional requests an extra $10,000 if he serves as airport manager, for example, moving expenses and other benefits, which would raise the base $75,000 salary to $141,962. "I think we should stop negotiations with Mr. Coleman and move on to the next candidate," Schuler said. "He does not seem like a good fit based on his response." But, Gregory Wood, the second choice, had already taken another job. Which brings us to Monday night a mere 107 days pa st the city charter deadline an d 287 days since Adelt left and the rushed hiring of t he council's third choice. N o offense to Mr. Behrens. W e just hope he knows what he 's getting into.

Just as parents try to get over the shock of this year's college tuition rates, the bills start piling up for peripherals everything from desk lamps to laundry. So here's a question regarding one of higher education's most exorbitant non-tuition items: Why does a collegiate paperback such as "Vice and Virtue in Everyday Life" cost $133.95? The book, subtitled "Introductory Readings in Ethics," is in its eighth edition and remains a favorite in college ethics classes. It's a 544-page paperback, certainly a hefty tome, but vastly overpriced for all markets except college, where predatory publishers, careless instructors and lax administrators combine to deliver a wallop to the wallet. College book prices, which can easily exceed $1,000 a year, have been climbing at roughly six percent annually. One response made easier by the Internet is the burgeoning market for used books. Used books now account for about $2 billion of the $5 billion total spent by American college students. But, since publishers don't get any of the revenue from used books, their natural response is to raise prices on new books even higher. In 2008 Congress took a look at this problem, and the result was the Higher Education Opportunity Act, which finally went into effect in time for the fall 10 semester. The law requires publishers to offer books and other materials, such as CDs, separately rather than in costly bundles. And, most importantly, colleges are now required to publish the cost of books in course catalogs. In its discovery process, Congress identified several factors that inflate college book prices. The most damaging is that the primary choosers of books are not the primary users; that is, teachers usually select the books, but students pay for them. Congress also noted that college books tend to be "price inelastic," meaning that buyers do not meet hikes in price with typical resistance. This is understandable, since students are generally hostage to professors'selections. Interestingly, the condition is not as profound in Europe, where many schools demand lower prices from publishers. Congress learned that one popular economics text cost $126 in the U.S., while the same book was priced at $76 in Great Britain. Since lawmakers were gracious enough to give schools two years to get ready for the new regula tions, I decided to check a few dozen colleges and unive rsities to see if boo k prices were now included in course catalogs. Compliance is spo tty at best. Here's a particularly galling notice o n Princeton University's web site: "The system is expecte d to be generally available to all faculty for input of course reading lists in the spring of 2011, with plans t o make complete course read ing information available to students by the fall of 2011 ." There were no signs of book lists or prices at many schools including Stanford, Boise State, Temple, Florid a State and the University of Chicago. At Georgetown University, the student new spaper, The Hoya, reported last week that only 52 percent of courses in the schoo l catalog had books listed for the fall semester. Afew schools, most notably Arizona State, have not only complied with the law, but created handy online features to allow comparisons. Unfortunately ASU's data shed light on another facet of the problem It seems that students takin g the very same course, such as Intro to Sociology, but from different teachers, are finding that books cost $15 0 in one class, but under $50 in another. Technology may soon giv e students an edge that even Congress was not able to provide. Inside Higher Ed reports that several schools are turning to e-books, with student costs expected to drop by as much as 50 percent. The publication says for-profit colleges have bee n in the vanguard of e-text use, while traditional nonprofit institutions have been slow, in large part because faculty control of the book process remains "sacred." Agood first step in controlling college book costs would be for schools to immediately comply with t he law. Another would be for administrators to insist that teachers select books early, and wisely, and avoid unne cessary changes from one ed ition of a book to the next which reduces or eliminate s the resale market. And the future can't arriv e quickly enough when it comes to e-books on campus. Many of us retain our love for printed volumes fo r recreational reading, but th e exorbitant cost of college books makes a digital fix already, as they say in the library, overdue.

Woodie Jackson SebringLake Placid remembers 9-11 E ditor: As we were greeted with a beautiful d ay there was a program held in r emembrance of 9-11 The American L egion Family of Lake Placid and H eron's Garden Restaurant held a cerem ony to remember this day of tragedy w hich occurred nine years ago. We had the presentation of the C olors, which was performed by the L egion Color Guard. It was very i mpressive. As I stood around and l ooked as our flag was lowered and t hen raised again I was amazed at the p eople standing there watching with t heir hands at their sides, etc., as the military men saluted and other civilians held their right hand over their heart in respect. Perhaps these individuals do not know how to respect our flag. Let us give them the benefit of the doubt, but you who were there and did not honor our flag should remember the next time. Please when your flag and mine are being honored pay your respects to Old Glory by putting your right hand over heart. Your flag will appreciate it and make her feel like you are proud of Old Glory It is an easy show of respect. I am disappointed to see the lack of display for our flag, but I am in sure in time people will realize what our flag means and honor her as she should be. Fly your flag proudly, However, the program was great. Our invocation and pledge were presented. Some still did not honor Old Glory the way they should. Marti did a great job, as usual, singing the national anthem. Welcome and introductions were done by Eileen May and our speaker was Denise Grimsley. She did a great speech and reminded us of how fortunate we are that the fateful event of 9-11 was not worse. May it never happen again in this country. We need to be more patriotic. Marti and Gary did a terrific job of honoring all the military by playing their songs and had all the veterans of the different branches stand up and be honored. Mark Manely played Taps on his bagpipes and brought tears to many a blurry eye. Donuts and coffee were served and we thank Sanford from Heron's Garden for the chow. I was very pleased and say thank you to the nice turnout of men and women from the sheriff's department, fire department, Lake Placid Police Department, members from the VFW3880, Lake Placid Elks, Legion Post and all the others that took the time out of their busy schedules to come out and support the 9-11 memorial program. Those of you who were not there missed a very inspiring time. Thanks again to all the men and women of our military those who have fought for us in the past and those who are fighting today to preserve our freedom that we all enjoy daily. May God bless them all and may God bless America and keep her safe. Thank you for listening to me. Enjoy our day. Suzanne Krueger Patriotic Instructor VFW 3880 Lake PlacidIdea of religious tolerance is at risk Editor: As I write this on the anniversary of 9/11, I recall watching the horror of the attack on TVand turning to my wife with a prediction that we now know to be, in part, tragically true. As the second jet hit a tower, I said "there goes our civil rights and funding for my homeless programs." Age and experience counts for something and I knew then what bin Laden later confirmed in a 2004 video message. He gloated about the effectiveness of terrorism in places like the United States. He said that it takes very little to motivate Americans to do the real damage to ourselves and then attack others if a tiny al-Qaeda franchise should in his words "raise a small of cloth on which is written the words al-Qaeda." I doubt that al-Qaeda knew that they could take control of three planes with small box knives or that a crash into one of the towers would be much different than the B-29 that hit the Empire State Building. The scale could have been much smaller and it would still trigger Americans to attack the very ideas that make the United States a great nation. If that were not enough, we would damage our economy in a way that a small terrorist group could only dream about. We have spent a trillion dollars on two wars while claiming we could not afford social and job generating investments at home. So what have we learned since Sept. 11, 2001? The answer is nothing if we judge by the opposition, including our own Florida fringe group, to the Islamic center in New York. Once again we are unwitting collaborators to bin Laden. This time the American idea of religious tolerance is at risk. If the Islamic Center is forced to move, alQaeda wins. James Upchurch Sebring

passed by the city council on a majority vote, but he does have the option to have a public hearing. The council made it clear that Behrens needs to give a 90-day notice if he is to resign, and if he is terminated he can collect up to three months of severance pay. Behrens stated that the negotiation period for his contract lasted about a day, and that he had decided to attend the meeting on Monday in order to negotiate further if it was needed. "Your staff has been very informative and helped me work through this (contract). We did this in about 24 hours," Behrens said. The council did not present any questions to Behrens at the meeting, and moved directly into the vote to accept his contract and hire him. Behrens told council after the vote that he was currently in negotiations for a home in Avon Park, and stated that he would be in town as soon as possible. Behrens and his wife Phyllis currently live in Groveland. His last position was town manager in Summerton, S.C., but according to the Item, a South Carolina newspape r, Summerton Mayor J ay Bruner said that Behrens w as asked to step down when h is contract expired because of the small town's financi al considerations. The council took a mome nt at the end of the meting to applaud Maria Sutherland f or her work as the acting ci ty manager, and Sutherland w ill step back into the city's pro ject manager on Oct. 1 with a 10 percent raise in pay. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, September 15, 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 Courtesy photo A number of patrons attended Friday night's opening of the Spill Your Heart Out art exhibit.

Hurd has visited El S alvador twice before, each t ime staying only a week w ith the teams he had built. The first trip I took a group o f students and about three o ther adults and we minist ered in the school system," H urd explained. Hurd taught music mini stry as well as teaching m inistry at two different s chools. The second mission w as in February. Melvina a ccompanied him and the c ouple continued the teachi ngs of music and teachings o f Christ in a local church. "The biggest focus other t han supporting the missiona ry pastors, will be in the l ocal school systems," J eremy Hurd said. The city of Jucuapa is f illed with poverty and the m issionaries that the Hurds a re helping have been worki ng to create a better life for t he people. "They aren't used to peop le coming in to this area," H urd said. The local miss ionaries have been working f or six years trying to establ ish a better community; t hey recently opened a new m edical facility and are curr ently building a new school. "From San Salvador to Jucuapa its a two-hour trip. In the city there's big beautiful buildings, restaurants Wendy's, Pizza Huts but on the way to Jucuapa you see little huts with no electricity. There's kids on the side of the road with no clothes, no shoes, no education. They're living in poverty; it's very drastic," Hurd said. The Hurds plan to homeschool their two young children throughout the year. The family hopes to raise the money through support letters, fundraisers, and through their Web site sendustoelsalvador.com. "We're raising it any way we can," the Hurds said. Jeremy's course concentration is missions and world evangelism; missions has become the passion of their heart. "We just believe God has called us, and so we are answering his call," Hurd said. The family hopes to be on their way to do God's work by late winter or early spring. With the help and support of their congregation and the Churches of Christ in Christian Union, the Hurds hope that they will be able to raise the funds needed to go on this journey.

SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, September 15, 2010NASCAR This WeekPage 4 B News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE T aylor Tubbs started off the Cross County season with a strong fourth-place finish at the Trinity Prep Invitational Saturday in Winter Park. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThere are two ways to b egin a new endeavor ging erly testing the water and s lowly easing in, or just j umping right in with both f eet. The Sebring Cross Country t eam leapt full bore into the n ew season this weekend at t he 18-team, 130+ runner, T rinity Prep Invite in Winter P ark. Saturday's showcase threw t he Blue Streaks right into t he mix among a large, tale nted and anxious field a mping up the competition f or the season right from the g et go. And while the finishes w eren't in the upper echelon, t he girls placed fifth and the b oys eighth, standings in this i nitial race of the season w eren't as important as gett ing a taste of what is to come a nd what to prepare for. "It was a tough course, w ith a lot of sharp turns," G irls Cross Country coach K rista Fredrikson said. There was tough competit ion from some larger s chools, but it was a great w ay to start off our season a nd a great experience for the k ids." Taylor Tubbs continued her meteoric rise from last cross country season through the track season and into this one with a fourth-place finish and a 22:17 time. Emily Smith's time of 24:47 was good enough for a 20th-place finish among the more than 60 girls in the field, while Hannah Schroeder (26:42), Kelly Broen (28:38) and Christina Gourly (28:46) rounded out the scoring finishes for the Lady Streaks. The boys were lead by David Scheck's 20:46, good for 33rd in a strong field of better than 70 runners. Donavon White was nine slots back with a time of 21:41, with Marcelo Gori just 18 seconds and three spots behind with his 21:59. Josh Bowyer (23:42) and Grey Lawrence (24:42) brought in the final two scoring finishes for Sebring. All in all, a promising start and some valuable experience against a strong field right off the bat. The team will look to take that experience forward as they host a seven-team invitational tomorrow, Sept. 16, at Highlands Hammock with a 4:30 p.m. start time. Tubbs starts strong for Streaks News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Dino Lower got some extra work in this weekend, along with fellow setter Caitlin Portis, at the Bartow Invitational Volleyball Tournament. Photo courtesy of FLWOutdoo rs Boater Miles Burghoff of Orlando caught a 10-bass total weighing 50 pounds, 7 ounces Sept. 11-12 to win $5,632 in the BFL Gator Division Super Tournament on Lake Okeechobee. Special to the News-SunOKEECHOBEE The Bass Fishing League took to the waters of Lake Okeechobee this past weekend and saw hundreds of pounds of bass brought ashore. Miles Burghoff of Orlando reeled in 10 fish, totaling a weight of 50pounds, 7-ounces over the two day event to win $5,632 in the BFLGator Division Super Tournament. The rest of the top ten also brought in 10 bass apiece, with the order of finish based upon their weight totals. Gary Simpson, of Gainesville, had a 40-pound, 11-ounce total for second place, Jim Hurlock Jr. of Lake Worth saw his haul tip the scales at 40-pounds, 9ounces for third and Don Demott of Boca Raton saw his fish total 33-pounds, 14ounces for fourth. Two entries from Lakeland took the next two spots, with Early Dowdy (33-pounds, 14-ounces) taking fifth and Arnie Lane (33-pounds, 7-ounces) finishing sixth. Robert Crosnoe of Inverness had a 10-bass total of 33-pounds, 2ounces for seventh, Steve Broughton of West Palm Beach went for 31-pounds even for eighth, Steve Fairtrace of Okeechobee had a 30-pound, 13-ounce haul for ninth and Bill Fugate of Kissimmee weighed in at 30-pounds, 12-ounces for 10th. In the Co-angler Division, Andrew Pulliam Burghoff wins Bass Fishing League Gator Division Event See BASS, page 3B By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAbusy season was added to this weekend as the Lady Blue Streaks added the Bartow Invitational Volleyball Tournament to their schedule. And there was an added set of busy schedules, perhaps, the prevented the team from bettering it's 2-2 record. "We were missing our seniors for the morning games because of the ACTs," head coach Venessa Sinness said. "So that made things a little more difficult." And yet the team still came out with a win over Lake Gibson to start the tournament off on the right foot. But the girls then took one on the chin with a loss to a strong Seminole squad in their follow-up, with seniors Anna West, Sam DiGiacomo and Brittany Whittington still not yet available. "They were a very good team," Sinness said. "If our seniors were there, at least it would have made those games closer." Upon the arrival of the upper class trio, Sebring got back on track with a win over a strong Class 1ASonrise team. And then the Lady Streaks got a look at a potential regional match-up against Auburndale. "Their district is the other part of our region and they're one of the top teams," Sinness said. "If we were to get into the playoffs, that's a team we could see." The girls saw they ha ve more work to do if that sc enario were to play out as th ey fell to the Lad y Bloodhounds. But it's all a part of t he experience and process of working toward that poi nt that the weekend was abou t. "It was a pretty goo d weekend for us overall ," Sinness said. "Both our se tters (Dino Lower and Caitl in Portis) got some more exp erience and we came out a ll right." The team then had to loo k forward to an important we ek with two top district foes o n the docket, Tuesday again st the Haines City Hornets at home and Thursday on t he road at Osceola. "Oh, these games a re huge," Sinness said. "Wint er Haven beat Osceola in fo ur games last week, which is more than they beat us by. S o this week could be about ge tting up to the second seed in the district if we can w in both matches." See Friday's News-Sun f or coverage of the match-u p with the Lady Hornets. Lady Streaks break even at Bartow This week cou ld be about gettin g up to the secon d see in the distri ct if we can win both matches.'VENESSASINNESS Sebring head coach The New York Jets will s oon get together to learn h ow to act like real men in a l ocker room where frat boy h ilarity apparently reigns. After Monday night's d ebacle against Baltimore at t he $1.6 billion New M eadowlands Stadium, it m ay be time to teach the t eam's offense a few new t ricks, too. Acting like real football p layers would be a good s tart. Good thing "Hard K nocks" has shut down for t he season. Not even the most devoted J ets fans would want to r elive what happened on a day that was supposed to deliver on Rex Ryan's promises. It began with the owner trying to make amends with a female television reporter who was leered at in the locker room. It ended with 78,127 fans filing out of a brand new stadium trying to take something positive out of a miserable night. Outside of the fact they didn't get hit by the lightning that forced the opening kick to be delayed, there wasn't much there. Yes, the defense will be good, even better when Darrelle Revis gets his legs under him. That's Ryan's specialty other than talking, that is so it better be good. But you can't win with an offense that is barely functional. And you're certainly not going to win if your best offensive player continues to be as it was on this night an aging running back the San Diego Chargers discarded like last week's trash. For weeks now, Ryan and his merry band of pranksters had the NFL's big stage all to themselves. They talked trash, acted big, and dared anyone in their way to do anything about it. When it came time to actually perform, though, they were undisciplined, unprepared, and unable to do even the simplest things on the offensive side of the ball. "It wasn't our best day, but they earned it," Ryan said. "They beat us probably in every statistical category there is except turnovers."

When Ray Lewis and c ompany come after you, e ven the most cohesive o ffenses can suddenly turn s haky. But, like the new stadium, t his team was supposed to be a lot better. Ryan kept promising e veryone who would listen t hey would be, and a lot of p eople bought into it. None of them, however, w ere wearing purple on this n ight. They knew an act when t hey saw one. "I told him that the beast h e's created, he's got to deal w ith," said the Ravens' T errell Suggs, who played u nder Ryan when he was a d efense coordinator in B altimore. "All respect to h im. I love him with all my h eart, but they got to deal w ith us this year." The Jets also had to deal w ith a distraction worthy of a "Hard Knocks" episode all b y itself. Ines Sainz, of Mexico's T VAzteca, said on her T witter account that she felt very uncomfortable!" on S aturday when she went to t he team's locker room to i nterview quarterback Mark S anchez and was greeted by c atcalls from players. By game day, NFL C ommissioner Roger G oodell had gotten involved, a nd Jets owner Woody J ohnson called Sainz to a ssure her it wouldn't happ en again. There were plans to sit the t eam down and teach them h ow to act properly when o thers were in the locker r oom, and Ryan had to a nswer questions about it a fter the game. But that doesn't explain t he ineptness of an offense t hat gained just six first d owns. It doesn't account for Sanchez throwing for a mere 74 yards. And it's certainly no excuse for a team playing so undisciplined it was called for 10 penalties in the first half alone. The penalties can be corrected. Despite all the love given Sanchez by Jets fans, though, the jury is still out on how good a quarterback he will be in only his second year in the NFL. Unfortunately for the Jets, they now have a short week before facing a New England team that looked a lot like the Patriots of old in its opener. If they can't fix their mistakes, they will suddenly be 0-2 with their next two games on the road. Ryan understands there is a sense of urgency in a season that lasts only 16 games. He has to be concerned about the offense. He said after the game that he has confidence in every man in the locker room. But this is a coach who apparently can't even keep his players under control in the locker room. Good things may eventually happen for the Jets. Good times may eventually come. Suggs, though, was right. Ryan created the beast and he's ultimately responsible for what becomes of it. One thing is for sure after the events of the last few days: Now is the time to whip it into shape. Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

Page 4BNews-SunWednesday, September 15, 2010www.newssun.com By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week RICHMOND, Va. „ The driver of Team Red Bulls No. 83 Toyota at Richmond International Raceway was ƒ Mattias Ekstrom. Ekstroms only previous Sprint Cup appearance had resulted in a 21st-place finish at Infineon Raceway. He has since tested with the team at Gresham Motorsports Park in Georgia and North Wilkesboro Speedway in North Carolina. To do a race on an oval is something different,Ž said Ekstrom. Its a lot of laps and a lot of cars. Racing in Richmond will be one of the biggest tasks of my life so far, but I feel I am ready for the challenge.Ž At least he didnt seem to be underestimating the task. Ekstrom finished 31st, four laps off the pace. Being there isnt enough „ Though he is in the Chase, Matt Kenseth doesnt regard himself as a legitimate title contender. Unless, of course, something changes. Asked if he was overlooked, the 2003 Winston Cup champion said: It doesnt matter to me, necessarily, what people say about it, but I would rather be the guy out there leading laps and winning races and be a legitimate contender. If you look at what we did all year, I wouldnt be talking about us, either, and saying that we have a shot as much as the top six or seven guys. We havent really been in that position.Ž Coulda been a contenduh „ Not even a miracle couldve put Martin Truex Jr. in the Chase at Richmond. A few weeks back I was one of those guys,Ž he said. I was a contender. I wont race them (the contenders) any differently or cut them any slack because they dont cut me any breaks. I race them clean, anyway, so my focus is on winning races.Ž Slap on some makeup „ Asked about the prospect of beginning the Chase 50 points behind, Greg Biffle said, That is really cosmetic.Ž It might be insignificant, but ƒ its not cosmetic.

Last race: A spin wound up benefiting Todd Bodine and contributing mightily to the Toyota drivers victory in Kentucky. An unscheduled pit stop gave Bodine, the series points leader, a chance to win the race on fuel mileage.CAMPING WORLD TRUCK THE CHASE FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIPBy Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week RICHMOND, Va. „ Contrary to popular belief, the Chase for the Sprint Cup did, in fact, change during the Air Guard 400. Not the composition. The order. Denny Hamlin, by winning at Richmond International Raceway, nailed down the top seed. By virtue of 60 bonus points, 10 for each of his victories to date, Hamlin will begin the Chase with 5,060 points, 10 more than the winner of the past four championships, Jimmie Johnson. Ten points is insignificant over the span of the 10-race Chase. For that matter, Hamlins 60-point edge over the five winless Chase drivers is relatively small. But, noted Hamlin, its something. He said winning more races than anyone else was proof of his teams quality and evidence that it would contend for the championship. But, he added, Your momentum ends as soon as you go to the next race track, as far as Im concerned.Ž Hamlin, 29, has made the Chase in each of his five full seasons. His latest victory was the 14th of his career. His previous Chase finishes, beginning in 2006, were third, 12th, eighth and fifth. Ive made a lot of these Chases and made a lot of mistakes through these Chases,Ž he said. Every year I feel like we learn something. I feel like this year Im as clear as Ive ever been and were winning at race tracks where we dont usually win.Ž Kevin Harvick won the regularseason points race by a wide (228-point) margin, but that means little once the Chase begins on Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Harvick has won three races to date, meaning that he opens the Chase trailing Hamlin by 30. The Chase qualifiers, with points as reconfigured, are Hamlin (5,060), Johnson (5,050), Harvick (5,030), Kyle Busch (5,030), Kurt Busch (5,020), Tony Stewart (5,010), Greg Biffle (5,010), Jeff Gordon (5,000), Carl Edwards (5,000), Jeff Burton (5,000), Matt Kenseth (5,000) and Clint Bowyer (5,000). Four drivers who won races „ Jamie McMurray (2), Ryan Newman, Juan Pablo Montoya and David Reutimann „ failed to qualify for the Chase.Ekstrom makes oval debut for Team Red BullTop Gun DennyV E R S U S 2010 STANDINGSSprint Cup Pts.

Jason White 765Whos hot: Jimmie Johnson warmed up for the Chase by “ nishing third in the “ nal two regular-season races, but Denny Hamlins victory at Richmond gave him an edge over the defending four-time champ.Whos hot: The outcome was a foregone conclusion, but the failure of Mark Martin and Dale Earnhardt Jr. to make the Chase was impossible to overlook. They dont all have wins, but the Chase field is composed of drivers who belong there. There isnt a long shot in the bunch. Remember when Denny Hamlin was a flat-track specialistŽ? Ancient history. Jimmie Johnson has never accumulated the most points during the regular season. The only Chase champion who wonŽ the regular season was Tony Stewart in 2005. The only driver who won the championship without winning any races in the Chase was also ƒ Stewart. And Stewart is the only driver who has won championships under both the Chase (2005) and the old system (2002). Stewart has won at least once in each of his 12 seasons as a driver in NASCARs premier series. Heres what Kevin Harvick has going for him. During the regular season, he scored the most points and it was no contest. Guess what? The Chase is decided by ƒ points. No one questions Kyle Buschs skill. What he has to rely upon to win the Chase is his judgment. Three Roush Fenway Ford drivers are in the Chase, and yet only once has a Ford driver won all year. As Jeff Gordon put it, its possible for a driver to win the championship without winning a race, but its unlikely. Five have shots, though. A potentially fruitful Chase strategy: Win on the intermediate tracks, and stay out of trouble everywhere else. What is the overriding effect of four straight Johnson championships on his peers? They fear him, whether they will admit it or not. Twelve drivers will have a shot at the championship ƒ not. There arent 12 teams capable of pulling it off, even after having the regular season graded on a curve,Ž which is what the Chase format basically does. Johnson Kurt BuschNeither finished on the lead lap „ Busch was 18th, Reutimann 19th „ after tangling at Richmond. The incident, on the 56th of 400 laps, brought out the first of three caution flags in the Air Guard 400. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: This wasnt much of a race for feuds. Of the three caution flags, one was for debris and another was for a spin after apparent tire failure.ŽDAVID REUTIMANN VS. KURT BUSCH Saturday Nights All RightThe only Saturday-night race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup is the Bank of America 500 on Oct. 16 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Box 1538, Gastonia, N.C. 28053.RPS the way to go?Dear NASCAR This Week, Ive just realized that Mr. (Brian) France has done something that us as children wouldnt even agree with. Do you remember when we would play paper, rock, scissors, in order to reach an unimportant decision? If somebody lost on best out of three and then asked for best out of (five), you know thats not happening. That points leader, who has already won the championship leading up to the end, should not be forced to take best out of five, and the person who is trying to fight for a championship should have to do exactly that. Phil Carnes Stanley, N.C. Perhaps France will somehow incorporate rock, paper, scissorsŽ to coming format changes.

After a wonderful twom onth vacation in central and n orthern New York, we r eturned late August to hot, h umid Florida. Summer in N ew York was very rewardi ng; though it may sound like w ork to you, my sister and I h ad a delightful time picking m ore than 100 quarts of raspb erries from her small patch. T hen we braved the woods of t he Adirondacks to pick wild b lackberries. As you can i magine, we feasted on severa l berry and rhubarb pies. We could not believe the 1 0to 12-foot stalks of field c orn that just seemed to grow e ach day to maturity. And, of course, we thoro ughly enjoyed being with f amily. The grandkids just c ontinue to grow and mature; n ow, our 3-year-old grandson ( soon to be 4) is in pre-school. H ow time flies as we age. Though the population d windles in the summer, a s teady group of regulars keep t he Monday morning social h our active. I'm told there w ere breakfast get-togethers a t Lakeview; the water aerob ics class continued, plus s ome shuffleboard. Carolyn S toner joined the aerobics g roup for health purposes but w e enjoy the conversation. This past Monday a dozen f olks gathered at the Wyse's t o celebrate September birthd ays. September is a popular m onth for birthdays to i nclude: Pat Huxman, Ralph G eiter, Cathy Blaise, John H aag, Linda Grossman, E lizabeth Aeschliman, Chuck D ay, Louise Mattson, Dawn K alybaba, Jane McCleery, S hirley Young, Bill Wyse, F loyd Cummins and Larry M cManus. Avery special year t o each one. Several enjoyed vacations o ver the summer like the C hapels who visited the Calgary Stampede; the Wyse's had excursions to Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville and also a cruise to the Bahamas. Leo and Claudette Boisvert had a wonderful fishing vacation in Virginia. Unfortunately, Leo suffered a fall their last day and has endured some nerve damage to his leg. We delight seeing him touring the park on his little motorized scooter now. Ray and Shirley Young returned today from their Pennsylvania summer stay. We welcome Rodney and Cathy Blaise from Vermont as new residents at 402 Town and Country. It was pleasant having Connie and Bill Mullen in for a few days. Connie surely enlivens any group and we appreciated their visit. We send our sympathy to Dwaine and Shirley Lowe as they mourn the death of Shirley's brother from Illinois. Our maintenance men kept busy this summer with park improvements. Agreat deal of new sod was placed and new plants and decorative stone are being added presently. The clubhouse has had major renovation with both restrooms being handicap accessible now, plus the appearance of enlarging the rooms. Presently, the old carpet and tile are being removed and new carpet laid in the clubhouse. Additions have been made to the newly sold models. Complete renovation inside and outside of "the Sister's home" on Springtime has been accomplished. What a delightfully attractive home has resulted. Barbara Quinn and Lily seem perfectly content in this lovely updated residence. We appreciate all the efforts extended by management. The right amount of sunshine and rain showers are reflected in the lovely green lawns and beautiful flowers. Several in the park experienced health problems over the summer. Eunice Hazelton had surgery in August and is recovering well. She has been blessed with a friend staying with her during her recuperation. All of us park residents were saddened by the death of Eunice's long-time canine companion, Lucky, who expired the day Eunice returned home from her hospital stay. He was a legend in the park and everyone misses his stops for a doggie bone. Becky Sims injured her shoulders and is semi-confined with an arm sling. Wendy Hervey also sports a new scooter to assist her mobility. Anna McKeen has had surgery, then pneumonia but also is home recovering. Bess Wyse (my walking partner) has experienced foot problems that have limited her normal activities. We trust all recover well and soon. The Huxmans'traveled to China recently and have some wonderful stories of their trip. Soon they will be touring New Zealand and Australia. They share some great insights of their many adventures. Avery interesting couple. Normal season activities will resume soon. In the meantime, we still enjoy the reprieve of heavy traffic on U.S. 27 but look forward to the return of our many friends/neighbors. Sept. 6, which was Labor Day, we had our coed coffee hour. The host for the morning was Ann Rissmiller, who provided a variety of homemade muffins. Carol Noel made the coffee. The emcee was Luetta Kiger and as she looked around the room she noticed that Duane and Joy Dean have returned from their Florida month vacation, which they spent at Panama City Beach. Thanks Joy and Duane for keeping the economy going by vacationing in Florida. Our beaches are the best. Linda Bernis introduced her daughter, Brett Michael Bernis. Carol Noel gave a sunshine report. Shirl Bauman is home from the hospital and is having rehab at home. Rick Knoche is still in the hospital but is improving every day. Maxine Bolyea has returned to the rehab center. Peggy Sue Teague was in the hospital but is now home. Jim Hogan reported that his team of helpers served 51 residents their coffee, orange juice, sausage and pancakes that were delicious. Jim asked that residents please remember to bring their own place settings when they attend. Carol Noel told the group that the Labor Day picnic would begin at 5 p.m. This also took the place of the military soup and sandwich. The Mustangs will be going to the Tower View Restaurant. Ladies Day Out will be at Beef O'Bradys in Lake Placid. There are sign-up sheets on the bulletin board. Fred White reminded the residents that he and Mary Sue Willeke will be in charge of the computer club. Laura Bailie accompanied us on the piano as she read the names of persons celebrating their birthdays the week of Sept. 6-13. We all sang Happy Birthday to John Reese, Ann Rissmiller and Mary Sue Willeke. Next she read the names of couples celebrating their wedding anniversary. We all sang to Robert and Jean Noyes, who are celebrating their 60 years of marriage. Luetta thanked Laura for providing the music. Carol Noel did mention that they have no one signed up for the salad bar luncheon nor the carry-in dinner, which is Sept. 23. We need a committee. Luetta told some cute little jokes regarding the characteristic differences between a man and a woman before closing the meeting. Labor Day we had 91 residents attend the picnic. Even though we had a downpour of rain about 5 p.m. We had curbside service and a smiling face from John Reese, who met everyone at their car door and escorted them under a huge umbrella to the club house for the picnic. Now that's service. He didn't even make a tip for being so kind. The hamburgs and hotdogs were delicious and everyone brought a dish to pass that went with the picnic theme. We had a great assortment of cakes and pies. Everyone had a grand time. This is becau se we have dedicated voluntee rs who are always willing to pitch in. Everyone should volunte er for an occasion during t he year. It's lots of fun and t he best way to meet your frien ds and neighbors. Tuesday Ladies D ay Coffee we had 16 wom en present. Carol Noel made t he coffee and provided one of t he many desserts that w as brought in for the Labor D ay Picnic. Carol was our emc ee as well. What would we d o without her. Everyo ne bragged about the Labor D ay Picnic. Carol read the nam es of persons we need to remem ber in our thoughts an d prayers. Kathleen Bishop an d Judy Muise will be our hos tesses for the Lady Lunch ho ur on Tuesday, Sept. 21.

DearAbby: I have gotten m yself into a "pickle" and I d on't know how to get out of i t. I rent a house with two r oommates (both males) and h ave always followed a strict r ule of not dating roommates o r co-workers. One night, I c ame home after having a f ew drinks with friends. One o f my roommates was up a nd we started talking. Then h e started kissing me. I wasn 't thinking clearly, and didn 't object when he trotted m e off to my room. I do like him, but only as a friend. There are no sparks f or me as there are for him. I d on't want this to happen a gain, but I don't want to h urt him either. In an ideal w orld, I'd like to remain f riends and roommates, not l overs. Do you have any s uggestions? Can't Believe I Broke My Rule in Florida DearCan't Believe: Yes, I do. You need to quit drinki ng or institute another rule" that you'll stop at t wo. Inform your amorous r oommate that in the cold s ober light of day you regret w hat happened and don't w ant to repeat it. It won't hurt" him; it will let him k now where things stand, a nd it's important that he get t hat message. If you do r emain roommates, maintain s ome distance and don't c ome home "pickled" again b ecause you know what c ould happen if you do. DearAbby: I am a girl in h igh school and have a friend, "Joey," who is gay. Joey saw another guy, "Eric," who he thought was cute, and he made me go over and ask Eric's friend if Eric is gay. His friend told me he is straight. Eric lives in my neighborhood and we became good friends. He has asked me out and I would say yes, except that Joey said he likes him. Joey has never spoken to Eric and only likes him in an "appreciating" sense. And of course, there's the fact that Eric isn't gay. What should I do? Does the "girl code" apply to your gay friends, too? Conflicted in the South Dear Conflicted: With the "girl code," girls agree not to date men another girl has her sights set on theoretically, because there is the possibility that he can be snagged if there's no interference. But in a case like this, where a gay person "appreciates" someone who is straight, the chance is remote to nonexistent. Out of consideration for Joey's feelings, talk with him about this. I'm sure he will appreciate your concern for his feelings and give you his OK. DearAbby: My cousin "Cecily" has been married for 30 years to a man the entire family thinks is wonderful. So did I, until I spotted him in a restaurant a few weeks ago kissing a woman half his age and who was certainly not Cecily. I feel awful with this knowledge, but feel worse about ruining their marriage. Do I have a responsibility to share this information with Cecily because she is family? Related to the Kissin' Cousin in New Mexico Dear Related: How would you feel if Cecily spotted your husband of 30 years canoodling with a young woman in a restaurant? Would you want to be warned? If the answer is yes, then have a word with your cousin. It may not ruin their marriage; it might help to save it.

My nails grow fast and need cutting and shaped. While I was there I got talked into a French manicure. I have seen this on a lot of people but had never had one before. I have seen my sweet niece try to do one in a hurry once. She complained that she could not hold her hand steady enough to make a straight line. We laughed and brainstormed about a paint pen that would make the job much easier. It wasn't until last Sunday that I saw that no one can do make that straight line. Getting a French manicure is all about babysteps. Isn't it strange? Everything in the world is a series of babysteps and we just can't see them. We only see the finished product. The young lady clipped and buffed my nails first. Then she put down a foundation that would hold the white polish in place. The next part astounded me. She didn't carefully paint the white tip; she put it on any old way. It was a mess. Here goes my perfectionism again. I thought it was awful but I kept my mouth shut and just watched the process. Next she took a flat paint brush and dipped it in nail polish remover and with a stroke of the brush she removed the excess polish and made a nice smooth line of white on the tip of my fingernail. I could not believe it. This is when I realized the significance of this process. She was decluttering the excess much like we have to do to find peace in our lives; get rid of the part that does not bless us and kept the things that we love. I try to keep clutter at bay by getting rid of clutter each time I bring something new into our home. When we clear out the clutter we make room for the peace that our routines bring to our lives and our homes. You can't organize clutter; you can only get rid of it. To find the peace in my life it took me months of 27 Fling Boogies to get rid of enough clutter so I could breathe. My clutter was stifling my creativity. I was hi ding behind the wall of stuff I had built up. It wasn't until I had cleared out the living areas of our home that I could see the light. There was more to me tha n just a messy chaotic house. I had something to say and things that needed doing. As long as I was being held cap tive by my household clutte r, mental clutter and physical clutter; I did not have a voice. My power had been depleted. The clutter sucked the life right out of me. I didn't hav e time. No time for me and no time for the work that neede d doing. Please don't wait till you think you have time to start decluttering your life. There will never be enough time if we allow our perfectionism to set our schedule. Make yourself take 5, 10 or even 15 minutes to eliminat e the clutter from your home each day. In the process of getting rid of the clutter; yo u will be opening up the pathways to your new life. What's next is just around t he corner! Are you ready to FLY?
