Fitch, founder of South Florida Community College's Museum of Fine Art and Culture, will exhibit his multidimensional art, sculpture, furniture and boxes in a show titled "Jim Fitch as an Artist" during the gallery's inauguration, which is open to the public free of charge. There will also be an auction of his work at the event. "The evidence is clear," HCA President Fred Leavitt said, "recent research has established that the art and culture industry is an important part of bringing economic growth and stability to rural communities. "Businesses consider art and culture important in their location decisions. This is why an art gallery at the airport makes sense. It lets corporate executives who fly in to Sebring make the association of art with Highlands County. "Another advantage of the location is that it will expose the work of local artists to an audience that is likely to have an appreciation of art and disposable income." Leavitt added, "In addition the research points out that tourists find art, culture and entertainment a major draw in HCA opening new art gallery Courtesy pho to Artwork from local artist Jim Fitch will be featured in the grand opening of the Heartland Cultural Alliance Gallery of Fine Art at Sebring Regional Airport from 4:30-6 p.m. Friday.

According to the letter sent to Gov. Charlie Crist from the Commission, Severino voted on 11 different items that furthered his own business partners and himself. Additionally, Severino neglected to complete the required voting conflict form in each case. "Pursuant to Section 112.324 (8), Florida Statutes, we are reporting our findings and recommending appropriate disciplinary action to you in this case...we have found pursuant to a stipulation that Mr. Severino violated the Code of Ethics...," wrote Phillip C. Claypool, executive director of the state ethics commission. The preliminary complaint stated that on June 9, 2005, Florida International Yachts purchased 80 lots in Sun 'N Lakes from National Recreational Properties, Inc. for a reported $2.2 million. Sun 'N Lake resident Bill Jackson filed a complaint to the Ethics Commission in July 2009 alleging that part of those lots belonged to a bus iness owned by Severino, who vot ed affirmative to 11 different resolutio ns from 2005 to 2007 that dealt wi th installing utilities to the area, creatin g the conflict of interest, Jackson said All of the resolutions led to priva te gain by Severino, according to t he commissions report. The governor's office is taking t he recommendation under advisemen t, according to Sterling Ivey.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING Both local and statewide unemployment figures continue to climb, according to a press release Friday from Florida's Agency for Workforce Innovation. Highlands unemployment reached 13.6 percent in August, up from 13.1 percent in July. Statewide, according to the release, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for August is 11.7 percent. This represents 1,084,000 jobless out of a labor force of 9,229,000. The unemployment rate is 0.2 percentage point higher than the July rate of 11.5 percent. Florida's total nonagricultural employment in August 2010 is 7,227,900, representing a decline of 16,000 jobs (-0.2 percent) in August. However, Florida's annual job growth rate is up 0.4 percent, representing an increase of 29,800 jobs from August 2009. It is the second consecutive month the state is showing positive over-the-year job growth after losing jobs for three years. "Although Florida's unemployment rate has slightly increased, there are still positive indicators of recovery. This is the second consecutive month with an increase in the number of jobs from the previous year," said AWI Director Cynthia R. Lorenzo in Friday's press release. "Historically, mixed signals from economic indicators during the bottom of a Jobless rate still climbing See JOBLESS, page 3A By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEYchristopher.tuffley@newssun.comLAKE PLACID It took the city council hours of discussion to pass Ordinance No. 10-617 at a special meeting Monday night. The ordinance finalizes the budget for fiscal year 2010-2011. Town council member Steve Bastardi made it clear from the beginning of the discussion that he would not vote for the budget as written, because it grew over the 20092010 level, and because he believes the county's proposed contribution toward Lake Placid's recreation costs is too low. The issue is complicated, and the process of determining how the county provides funding to a municipality is even more so. Council members made it clear during the meeting that their frustration is with the process itself not with anyone involved in it, and especially not County Commissioner Don Bates, whom they described as helpful. "I'm past the point of blaming the county," Bastardi said, adding he just wants to fix what he sees as an unfair situation. "The problem I have," he said, "is that all year we talked about the inequality and meant to fix it. It's an embarrassment, because we didn't fix anything." The county is considering different ways to apportion recreation funding among the municipalities. In the meantime, however, it has written its recreation allocation as a lump sum in its budget. That amount still has to be divided between Avon Park, Sebring and Lake Placid. The Lake Placid town council is upset because Avon Park currently receives the largest portion of that lump sum and has refused to accept a lesser amount. At the same time, town Lake Placidplays hard ball with recreation budget I'm past the point of blaming the county.'STEVEBASTARDI council member See LP, page 8A

All proceeds will go to help reopen the Florida Lions Camp in Lake Wales, which is closing because of a $250,000 debt. It has been in operation since 1974. Several Highlands County children and adults with disabialities attend the camp, which caters to their abilities. "It makes me sad that the camp is closing. We got to do something to help out," Angie Luft said. Luft has attended the camp for the past couple years. She is a member of the Aktion Club and receives training at Ridge Area Arc. The Aktion Club, a civic group comprised of individuals with disabilities in Highlands County, voted last week that they needed to help the camp.

Glen Owens, the assistant executive director of the Florida Baptist Association, came all the way from Jacksonville to preside over the ceremony. The event had special meaning because vandals had attempted to set fire to the sanctuary just before Christmas in 2009. Hymnals had been set on fire and strewn around the sanctuary. While the building's structure was not affected there was considerable interior damage, some from the small fires themselves, but more from smoke and water. Fortunately, the church had insurance. "We had to really gut the inside," said Hudson. "We stripped down to the bare walls." No one has ever been charged in the incident, but nine months later the congregation has moved on and is more unified than ever. "Give praise to God and his wonderful sweet spirit," Hudson said Tuesday. "Everything came together." Hudson said the sanctuary has been completely refurbished and increased by about 50 seats. There is a new state-of-the-art sound system, as well as a new organ and a new piano. Hudson paraphrased from Paul's epistle to the Philippians, "Some people meant it for harm," he said, referring to the arson, "but God meant it for good." He said the sanctuary was filled to overflowing for the re-dedication ceremony. "There were in the ballpark of 200 people." Faith Baptist Church is at 600 Holmes Ave. The public is welcome. Sunday Bible study begins at 9:30 a.m. The worship service begins at 10:45 a.m., and there is an evening service at 6 p.m. Lake Placid church fights fire with faith Courtesy photo Members of the Faith Baptist Church of Lake Placid re-dedicate their sanctuary Sunday afternoon. Vandals had set hymnals on fire in December of 2009, destroying the interior. Repairs to sanctuary complete after 2009 arson By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comFlorida Department of Financial Services, in conjunction with the Chief Financial Officer, is holding a foreclosure program to residents of Highlands and surrounding counties. Consumer Outreach Coordinator Terry Cerullo explained the mission behind the Florida Housing Help Workshop. "There are so many people who have lost their job or the spouse has lost their job, been affected by huge medical finances and just are not able to make the payments. We want to help them," said Cerullo. Cerullo is a representative of Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink. Cerullo advises consumers and homeowners to be wary of the loan modifiers and mortgage scams that many people notice advertised on the side of the road. "The aren't real solutions, they are scams. There is usually a huge fee that has to be paid up front and you just basically get no results," explained Cerullo. The Florida Housing Help Workshop offers community members access to nationwide representatives and lenders such as Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Chase, Washington Mutual, and many other companies offering help and solutions regarding foreclosure and mortgage modifications. This workshop is designed to educate and assist families facing foreclosures. The workshop will provide a free opportunity to meet mortgage lenders, local housing authorities, legal assistance, HUDcertified housing counselors, and credit counseling services. "We've done 100 of these in the last two years," said Cerullo. "It's hard to put a number on how many people it's helped, but it's been a lot and we know we will continue to help people," Cerullo said. The Florida Housing Help Workshop will be held in Sarasota on Saturday Oct. 2. The CFO is working to brin g a workshop to Highlan ds County in the near futur e. Cerullo hopes that Highlan ds County residents will be a part of the workshop in ord er to help residents with an y financial issues they may be dealing with. "It's difficult for famili es facing foreclosure, what w e hope to do with this wor kshop is provide some type of financial and emotional reli ef and help families best dete rmine what the next step is f or them," said Cerullo.

In other counties, the trend continues to rise as well. Hendry County at 20.6 percent had the highest unemployment rate in Florida in August. Flagler County posted a 16.4 percent rate and Indian River County had 16.2 percent. DeSoto County recorded 13.4 percent unemployment figures, up from 13.1 per cent in July. Hardee County had 14.6 percent, up from 14.4 percent in July, and Okeechobee County reported 14.8 percent unemployment in August, up slightly from 14.7 percent in July. Many of the counties with the highest unemployment rates in the state have seasonal declines in agriculture and related industries.

M aybe it's just us, but hasn't 2 010 turned into a l ong, difficult, s teamy, griefs tricken year?Every time we've turned a round it seems someone we a dmire, love or depend upon h as left us unexpectedly l eaving painful voids in our e veryday lives. It has been a year of terrib le losses Charles Bryan, J im McCollum, Jim Higgins, J ulie Carlson come to mind, n ot to mention the 5-yearo ld-boy who drowned in L ake Jackson last week. And while one of the few b right spots in this off year e lection cycle is the high l evel of civil debate among o ur local candidates for publ ic office, the emotional o ften irrational back-andf orth accusations passing for s ubstantive discussion at the s tate and national levels has been nothing but demoralizing. We find ourselves as a group tired of it all tired of the muggy heat, the nightly whine of mosquitoes, the daily drone of politicians, the enervating apathy of the public, the thoughtless, excitable babble spewing from the overwrought. Which is why Monday morning proved to be an unexpected relief. It was the cool breeze that caused us to sit up and take notice. None of us broke into a sweat taking out the trash, or walking the dog, or driving the kids to school. After a good night for sleeping, suddenly the morning was refreshing and it felt wonderful to be alive again. Even the sight of trees limbs dancing, their leaves rustling under that wonderful Florida blue sky, calmed our fever. Autumn is in the air. Just in time, the natural world reminded us of the important things in life. Just in time, that refreshing current of air reminded us there are forces larger and healthier than our own, selfabsorbed, self-destructive impulses. With lakes, canals and streams rejuvenated by the summer rains, the symphony of frogs sing out into the night, hiding in tall grass that is plump with moisture and soothingly green. There is hope after all. Our finest days are still before us. We are grateful to have been reminded of the healing properties of shade and the delicious sound of running water. Just when we need to get out of our homes and away from the grumpiness of endless news reports, the weather changes, enticing us outside and into the open. It should get even better. The winter season approaches, football is here; hopefully the Rays will take the Yankees to the cleaners. Now is not the time to lose heart or give up. Cooler weather, heads and ideas will prevail.

Upon hearing that Don had d ecided to run for county commiss ioner, I immediately contacted Don o n Facebook and offered any supp ort that I could provide. Don has t aken a truly grassroots approach to h is candidacy, yet has been able to e mbrace modern technology and s ocial networking venues to reach p eople. Don has said many times that he w ill have an open door to all the c itizens of Highlands County if he i s elected to serve. So open, he s ays, that he will remove the door f rom the hinges. Don will be an e asily accessible commissioner for a ll citizens. The word "change" has been u sed a tremendous amount in polit ics over the last election cycle and h as become a punch line for many. I f eel that Don will not bring change" but will provide a "redir ection". He will redirect the focus o f the board to the issues that affect n ot just a small segment of the popu lation of Highlands County but a ffect us all. Don has said many times that he does not have all the answers but certainly has no problem in asking the questions until he gets the answer. Even though I moved out of the area nearly a year ago, I am still regularly in the area and fully support Don.On Nov. 2 please vote Don Elwell for Highlands County Commissioner District 2. William Berry LakelandWhat does the long distance future hold?Editor: I think that we have all seen pictures or fossil remains of creatures that roamed on the planet 65 million years ago. I wonder what kind of creatures will be roaming on the planet 65 million years from now? Just a thought. Don Streeter SebringNo apology forthcoming for beliefsEditor: An open letter to the Nations of this world and their peoples: America has proven its love of liberty for all the peoples of the world many times over, (World War I, World War II and many wars in between) sacrificing millions of its young men and women, the rebuilding of nations worldwide, both enemy and friend. The forgiving of trillions of dollars of debt we have and are living up to the commandment to love our neighbor and our enemy. I would ask the rest of the world to live by that commandment. We turn the other cheek but we have the God-given right to protect our nation, "Bless the peacemaker." America is a Christian nation, our laws are governed by that Christianity. We are also a sovereign nation. The pledge of allegiance speaks of these laws we the people live by. Every oath of public office requires the oath to be sworn on the Bible. Our currency states in God we trust. American citizenship requires the oath of allegiance. All court proceedings require an oath on the Bible. We the American people make no apology to the world for our belief in Christianity, "God's greatest gift," for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16. Billie E. Jewett SebringEAA, LPHS share aviation excitementEditor: The first airport session of the local "Engineering and Advanced Technology Academy Aviation and Aerospace Exploration Initiative" took place last Saturday at the Sebring Airport's Experimental Aircraft Association's hangar. That was a mouthful to digest but, let me explain: The EAArecognizing the need to indoctrinate the young teenagers in high school into basic skills that will enable them to successfully enter the aviation work force upon their graduation from school have started a program to give these kids those needed skills. There has been set up a program for the students in the program to complete an rigid adherence to the requirements is required, two-hour classes at Lake Placid High School and four-hour sessions at the airport on Saturdays are mandatory. Avalid excuse for missing classes is required to qualify for the reward at close of the course. The session will run from now until the first of June. These classes will entail all aspects of aviation from actually being flown in an aircraft owned and operated by local members of EAAChapter 1240 through working on a donated aircraft guided by qualified personnel and all the associated aspects of the aviation world in classroom workshops also conducted by able instructors. This Saturday introduction started with a film depicting the start of aviation in southern California and introduced a lot of the aviation pioneers. I saw a lot of the old planes that were the things in my old days. After the movie, the kids were separated into bunches. Several went into the EAAclassroom for instruction from a manual supplied then guided by a young lady pilot whose name I did not get because I didn't wish to break into the classroom during the session, several were routed to the Triplane Areonca that has been donated to the chapter for instruction of the students and learned about the ignition system and working of the aircraft engine Many questions were asked and ably answered by the instructor, George Eschelman. Six of the teenagers were taken out to planes owned and flown by chapter members on their first airplane flights. The balance were put to work pain ting a work area of the hangar that they will be using for future sessions. These airport sessions and the two-hour Thursday session at the high school will continue until Jun e of next year when they will be exposed to a two-week period of finalization and to students who have attended all classes and completed the assigned work satisfacto rily will be awarded a grant of $1,000. Alot of sacrifices by these kids and their parents will be required but by next June they will be ready to enter the job market with a basi c skill for their occupation. John Rousch of Lake Placid Hig h School has been instrumental in th e setting up of this program and the local chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association has accepted the burden of carrying out the aim s of the program. The folks engaged in carrying o ut this program deserve a lot of credi t for their efforts as they put in a lot more time than the students they a re training. Who knows? The little gi rl asking all the questions about the airplane may be one of our astronauts of tomorrow. Woodie Jackso n Sebring When Barack Obama was a state legislator in Illinois he occasionally used the tactic of voting "present" on certain bills because the measures, as written, were flawed and the goal was to get them improved before passage. It worked as a legislative maneuver but was misrepresented years later by political opponents who claimed it was a sign of wishy-washiness. In the upcoming midterm elections many Americans wish they, too, could just vote "present." They're frustrated because the administration's four-year plans haven't been completed in two. They're fed up with the Democrats'inability to reach across the aisle, as was promised in the 08 campaign, to find compromises with the opposition. And above all, they're genuinely frightened that the depressed economy will cause permanent damage to our way of life, if it hasn't already. Many of these folks want to send an angry message, but "present" isn't a ballot option. They'd probably also appreciate a "Comments" section at the bottom of each ballot although it's likely that most of would be X-rated. Faced with similar frustrations in the past, some people decided that the closest thing to "present" was a vote for third-party candidates who had no chance whatsoever of winning. Other voters simply stayed home. None of this works in the American system, where most elections, certainly those for national offices, are decided by relatively slight shifts within the middle. These voters, sometimes called "swing" voters, or "undecideds," are wooed aggressively and this year there are more of them than usual. This is perilous, not just for candidates but for the governing system, because swing voters tend to be the least informed and the most likely to make rash ballot decisions based more on emotion than logic. In America's modern political structure it's rarely about candidates; it's almost always about parties. Any voter who tap dances in the center, claiming it's time to "give the other party a chance," doesn't understand the issues or the true party positions. The biggest fear for Democrats this fall is that many who voted for Obama in '08 will demonstrate frustra tion in '10 by not voting at all. This is confirmed in the Wall Street Journal/NBC New s poll that shows Democrats still rank higher than Republicans among all adults, but plunge dramatical ly when the survey is limited to "likely voters." Clearly, the Republican base is angry and energized, while the Democrats'base is barely "present." If no-show voters give Republicans control of Congress it wouldn't send a message, it would derail the entire effort to extract the nation from problems created during eight years of the Bus h Administration. Americans might not like where we are today, but they should be mor e fearful of a return to the rece nt past, and they ought to be cau tiously optimistic about wher e we're headed. By 2012 military operation s in Afghanistan will be reduce d at least to the maintenance le vels now seen in Iraq. The health care bill that the Obam a Administration spent so much political capital to achieve wi ll have been established to a point where many Americans can actually experience the benefits rather than just read about them. And the economy which shows signs of stabiliz ing, will very likely have turned around and with that will come more jobs. Of course there are many stumbling blocks, but the biggest is the November elec tion. If Republicans gain con trol of Congress and with it the power of the purse they could dash all hopes of completing America's resurrection Their goal would be to so tho roughly thwart Obama's progress that a Republican challenger, whoever he or she might be, could take over the White House in 2012. Democrats have less than two months remaining to driv e home the message: You can't just vote "present," you must be both present and accounte d for. Peter Funt is a writer and public speaker.

Wheeler was placed on s uspension notice two weeks a go by Helms because of e mployee issues at the landf ill. Two other employees, L andfill Operations Manager D ick Gorman and mechanic C arl Beckman, were also susp ended without pay after it w as discovered that time card a buse existed. Wheeler and Gorman's s uspensions were put on hold u ntil appeal hearings, which a re scheduled for Friday. Gorman, Beckman and W heeler were placed on 90d ay probation as well. B eckman did not appeal his d isciplinary action and was t ransferred to the county R oad and Bridge D epartment. Wheeler and Gorman liste d several reasons for their a ppeal, and stated that H elms'investigation into w rongdoing was "not supp orted by factual evidence." Helms also wrote in his w arning to Gorman that the employees have become f actionalized" and that the management problems have "been going on far too long." Asheriff's report shows that one employee even struck another one without repercussions and a DVD of meetings at the landfill as well as the employee warning reports of both Wheeler and Gorman stated that "there have been several instances that have been ignored by management where employees have failed to follow established procedures, failed to follow board policy, or engaged in behaviors specifically prohibited by the personnel manual." Additionally, both the employee warning reports and the video confirm that there is employee tensions at the landfill. "It is apparent that there is division among the employees at the solid waste facility. There are multiple groups of employees that have aligned themselves in factions that do not cooperate or communicate with each other. This has been the situation for a long time without interventions from management," stated the warning report for both Wheeler and Gorman. "We have, as I joke, the Black Panthers, the Aryan Brotherhood, and the Latino Kings," Gorman said on the recording, referring to what he called employee "cliques." Helm's letter also stated that Wheeler failed to do anything about that comment nor did he advise Gorman to cease and desist from using those derogatory terms. Wheeler had worked for the county since 2005. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, September 22, 2010Page 7A BestWishes,Patona HappyRetirement!Please join us for a Celebration of the Career of Patricia Graf,Vice-President and Avon Park Branch Manageron Tuesday, October 5th from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM at the Avon Park Office. c hoosing a vacation destinat ion, it is also critical to the a cademic achievement of our c hildren.

Continued from page 1A Art gallery opening at airport Follow the News-Sun on www.twitter.com/thenewssun www.facebook.com/newssun Continued from page 1A Wheeler fired for insubordination By JEANNINE AVERSA APEconomics WriterWASHINGTON It turns o ut the recession ended more t han a year ago. Feeling better now? The panel that determines t he timing of recessions conc luded Monday that this one e nded technically, anyway in June 2009, and lasted 18 m onths. The duration makes i t the longest since World War I I. It may be over, but you w on't be hearing any cheers f rom the millions of A mericans who are strugg ling to find a job. Or are w orried about the ones they h ave. Or have lost their h omes. Or are behind on the m ortgage. "Every single one of the i ndividuals who wrote the r eport needs a serious reality c heck," said Bob Johnson of t he Queens borough of New Y ork, who is 46, had worked i n communications and has b een looking for a job for m ore than three years. Not that it's the fault of the a cademics in this case the N ational Bureau of Economic Research, a group of economists based in Cambridge, Mass. It's their job to declare when recessions officially begin and end. Their finding is one that economic historians spend a lot of time pondering. Politicians care, too. They don't want to be blamed for downturns that happen on their watch. One of those politicians is President Barack Obama, who inherited the recession it began in December 2007, according to the bureau. Obama found little reason Monday to celebrate that it had officially ended. "The hole was so deep that a lot of people out there are still hurting," the president, whose Democratic Party faces a likely setback in the midterm elections, said at a town-hall meeting sponsored by CNBC. Obama has made a point of noting small signs of progress in the economy, which is growing slowly. Some Democrats have urged him to stop boasting about any progress at all, for fear that it irks people who feel things aren't getting better and makes politicians seem out of touch. For Melody Brooke, a 55year-old marriage and family counselor in Lewisville, Texas, it didn't feel in her household as if the recession ended 15 months ago. Her household finances were in shambles at the time. "It felt like the heat of it for us," Brooke said. Her outlook is starting to brighten. Her husband finally found full-time work about a month ago. And Brooke's counseling business is picking up: She's on track to make about $35,000 for the year. For the rest of the country, the statistics are familiar and grim. Since the recession began, 7.3 million jobs have disappeared. Nearly 2.5 million homes have been repossessed. Unemployment is at 9.6 percent. Since the technical end of the recession, the economy has been growing. But the growth has been painfully slow. The recession is over! So where's the party?

POLICEBLOTTER council members say, the 1,728 Lake Placid in-town residents subsidize the recreation facilities used by roughly one third of all county residents or 35,000 people. Bastardi moved that $163,500 what Lake Placid feels is the county's fair share of the town's recreation costs be put into the budget as revenue for the recreation department, despite the fact that money has not yet been given to the town, and might never be. This strategy has a risk. Should the county not allocate $163,500 to Lake Placid, there would not be enough money to properly maintain the parks. Bastardi said he doesn't know if county would, or even can, give the town the amount, but that is not his worry. His concern, he said, is, "to bring value to the people of Lake Placid." That means not making them pay more than their fair share. If worst came to worst, the parks could be closed. "Let the weeds grow," Bastardi said. In addition to his issue with the county, Bastardi and the council cut $50,000 out of the town's portion of the recreation department's funding and returned the money to general funds. This way county money, if received, will cover recreation costs and the town's new budget will not have gotten larger than last year's. Ten thousand dollars of the $50,000 will be used to help fund the fireworks display in July. It took the city council less than a minute to pass Ordinance No. 10-616. That ordinance sets the operating millage rate for fiscal year 2010-11 at 3.8100 mills, which the city says is less than the rolledback rate of 4.6120 mills by 17.39 percent.

LP writes county funding into 2010-11 rec budget Punt, Pass and Kick winners Associated PressThe well that spewed millions of gall ons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico is f inally dead, but residents will be feeling t he pain for years to come. Apermanent cement plug sealed BP's w ell nearly 2.5 miles below the sea floor, f ive agonizing months after an explosion s ank a drilling rig and led to the worst o ffshore oil spill in U.S. history. Retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad A llen, the federal government's point m an on the disaster, said Sunday that B P's well "is effectively dead" and posed n o further threat to the Gulf. Allen said a p ressure test to ensure the cement plug w ould hold was completed at 5:54 a.m. C DT. But there is still plenty of oil in the w ater, and some continues to wash up on s hore. Many people are still struggling to m ake ends meet with some waters still c losed to fishing. Shrimpers who are a llowed to fish are finding it difficult to sell their catch because of the perception largely from people outside the region that the seafood is not safe to eat. Tourism along the Gulf has also taken a hit. The April 20 blast killed 11 workers, and 206 million gallons of oil spewed. The gusher was contained in mid-July after a temporary cap was successfully fitted atop the well. Mud and cement were later pushed down through the top of the well, allowing the cap to be removed. The spill caused an environmental and economic nightmare for people who live, work and play along hundreds of miles of Gulf shoreline from Florida to Texas. It also spurred civil and criminal investigations, cost gaffe-prone BPchief Tony Hayward his job, and brought increased governmental scrutiny of the oil and gas industry, including a costly moratorium on deepwater offshore drilling that is still in place. Gulf oil well is dead but the pain will remain for years IN THECIRCUIT COURT OF THE 10TH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT, IN AND FOR HIGHLANDS COUNTY, FLORIDA GENERAL JURISDICTION DIVISION CASE NO. 28-2009-CA-000751 AURORA LOAN SERVICES LLC PLAINTIFF -VSJUAN BALBIN; JOSEFA BALBIN;ANY AND ALL UNKNOWN PARTIES CLAIMING BY, THROUGH, UNDER, AND AGAINST THE HEREIN NAMED INDIVIDUAL DEFENDANT(S) WHO ARE NOT KNOWN TO BE DEAD OR ALIVE, WHETHER SAID UNKNOWN PARTIES MAY CLAIM AN INTEREST AS SPOUSES, HEIRS, DEVISEES,GRANTEES OR OTHER CLAIMANTS; LAS PALMAS RESORT HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION, INC.; MORTGAGE ELECTRONIC REGISTRATION SYSTEMS, INC.; JOHN DOE AND JANE DOE AS UNKNOWN TENANTS IN POSSESSION DEFENDANT(S) NOTICE OF FORECLOSURE SALE NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN pursuant to a Summary Final Judgment of Foreclosure dated September 2, 2010, entered in Civil Case No. 28-2009-CA-000751 of the Circuit Court of the 10th Judicial Circuit in and for HIGHLANDS County, SEBRING, Florida, I will sell to the highest and best bidder for cash atJURY ASSEMBLY ROOM, BASEMENTat the HIGHLANDS County Courthouse located at 430 SOUTH COMMERCE AVENUEin SEBRING, Florida, at 11:00 a.m. on the 5th day of October, 2010 the following described property as set forth in said Summary Final Judgment, towit: LEGAL: LOT 642 OF LAS PALMAS RESORT, ACCORDING TO THE DECLARATION OF COVENANTS, RESTRICTION AND EASEMENTS FOR LAS PALMAS RESORT, RECORDED IN OFFICIAL RECORDS BOOK 1830 AT PAGE 1392 OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS OF HIGHLANDS COUNTY, FLORIDA ALSO KNOWN AS: THE NORTH HALF, MORE OR LESS, OF THE FOLLOWING DESCRIBED PROPERTY (THE DIVIDING LINE FOR THE PROPERTY BEING COEXTENSIVE WITH THE PARTY WALL WHICH DIVIDES THE DUPLEX LOCATED UPON THE PROPERTY) LEGALLY DESCRIBED AS: LOT 663 LOT 642 THE NORTH HALF OF THE FOLLOWING DESCRIBED PROPERTY: A PORTION OF LOT 12, BLOCK 4, TOWN OF AVON PARK, SECTION 23, TOWNSHIP 33 SOUTH, RANGE 28 EAST, ACCORDING TO THE PLAT THEREOF RECORDED IN PLAT BOOK 1, PAGE 33 OF THE PUBLIC RECORDS OF DESOTO COUNTY (OF WHICH HIGHLANDS COUNTY WAS FORMERLY A PART), FLORIDA, BEING MORE PARTICULARLY DESCRIBED AS FOLLOWS: COMMENCE AT THE NORTHEAST CORNER OF LOT 2, BLOCK 4; THENCE RUN NORTH 90 00'00'' WEST ALONG THE NORTH LINE OF SAID LOT A DISTANCE F 102.00 FEET; THENCE SOUTH 0 09'06'' WEST A DISTANCE OF 524.97 FEET; THENCE SOUTH 89 59'48'' WEST A DISTANCE OF 218.29 FEET; THENCE NORTH 0 12'35'' EAST A DISTANCE OF 72.67 FEET; THENCE SOUTH 89 47'25'' EAST A DISTANCE OF 41.57 FEET FOR POINT OF BEGINNING; THENCE SOUTH 89 40'11'' EAST A DISTANCE OF 26.70 FEET; THENCE NORTH 0 19'49'' EAST A DISTANCE OF 58.00 FEET; THENCE NORTH 89 40'11'' WEST A DISTANCE OF 26.70 FEET; THENCE SOUTH 0 19'49'' WEST A DISTANCE OF 58.00 FEET TO THE POINT OF BEGINNING.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING It was the usual heated contest, Monday night's matchup between the visiting Lady Dragons and the Blue Streaks. And it was in the most pitched battle that Sebring head coach Venessa Sinness saw a distinct change in her squad that could well propel them, moving forward. "That third game was a wild one and very exciting," she said. "From 23-23 on, it was back and forth the rest of the way. They'd go up and be at game point, then we'd come back, tie it, get to game point and then they'd come back. "But I saw a change in my girls. That was the first time I've seen them play to win, rather than play not to lose," she continued. "They weren't scared of making a mistake." That had followed earlier games where mistakes did cost the girls as their serve and serve receive were a bit lacking. "Lake Placid is a very aggresive serving team and we didn't do very well in receiving," Sinness said. "The first game, we had the lead but the stepped it up and we fell apart." That lead to a 25-19 Lady Dragon win and the surge continued through the early going of the second game. But Sebring started to fin d themselves, coming back to grab a 25-21 win to ev en things up leading to wh at would be the climactic thi rd game. Going into the volleyba ll equivalent of extra inning s, back and forth it went, wi th each team on the verge of victory, only to see the oth er even it up and be on t he brink. In the end, Sebring ek ed out a 29-27 win, and with t he new attitude discovered, t he momentum swing carri ed over into the finale. "Our conditioning is al so such a big key for us ," Sinness said. "I always s ay that the longer a match goe s, By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK It could have been a scrap-fest Monday night, with the original team of scrappers, the Lady Wildcats of Hardee, visiting a more recently dubbed scrappy team, the Lady Red Devils of Avon Park in non-district action. And while the first three games were of the more scrappy variety, the Devils arose and showed they had more to offer such as a relentless serve. "Our serving was really strong tonight," head coach Stephanie Devlin said. "It was back and forth a lot early and we shouldn't have lost that third game, but we woke up and showed what we could do in the fourth." That was after Avon Park had gotten by in the first two games with 25-19 and 26-24 wins. But then, with a 23-19 lead in the third game, things came a bit unglued and Hardee clawed back for a 26-24 win to get themselves, seemingly, back into it. Any momentum shift, however, went to the Devils, who were now seeing red after, in their minds, giving that one away. "We were mad after that one," Devlin said. "And it showed in that fourth game. The girls played angry." The 25-7 score in the clincher provided an ample example of what the team can do when on their game. Zakia Hart lead the offensive attack with nine kills on the night, while Ashley Chacon and Tia Nobles tied for team serving honors with eight aces apiece. For the team overall, 23 points this night were scored on service aces. The win comes after last Thursday's three-game sweep at district foe Mulberry and puts Avon Park's record at 5-2 overall and 4-1 in district play. Solidly in second place in the District 9-3Astan dings, the Lady Devils were on the road Tuesd ay against McKeel Academy, undefeated in district pla y.

www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, September 22, 2010Page 3B By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week Tony Stewart needed enough fuel to make it another lap and a half. Since his No. 14 Chevy couldnt quite make it, Stewart had to settle for 24th instead of first at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Stewart, who broke into the win column just two weeks earlier at Atlanta Motor Speedway, is now 11th in the Chase, 124 points behind his former teammate, Denny Hamlin. But the 39-year-old Stewart is a two-time champion, and the nearvictory demonstrated how much more competitive he has become in the seasons stretch drive. There never was that big, big gain,Ž said Stewart. It has been a lot of little things throughout the season, especially the last two and a half to three months. Its nice to see that, in different departments, we found little things, and it shows the whole organization is pulling their weight and working really hard and staying pumped up. ƒ Everybody is doing their part; finding their part of the equation to make us better.Ž While offering no particular statistical evidence, Stewart insisted that this is most competitive Chase field ever. This is probably the best shot that 11 guys have had in four years to keep those guys (Jimmie Johnsons team) from doing (winning five straight). Its the most competitive Chase field weve ever had.Its really anybodys game right now,Ž he said. Theres a lot of racing that has to go on. There are a lot of variables out of our control each week. ƒ Its not whether they (Johnson) can do it five times in a row. Its, can they do it this year? Thats the big thing.ŽNot that I wasnt „ While contending that maturity is a factor, Kyle Busch insisted his past Chase failures „ 10th twice and fifth „ werent a result of immaturity. Asked how he had matured, Busch said, Its a lot easier to go through and run consistently,Ž but added, Unfortunately, the first three races in 2008 (most recent Chase appearance) were mechanical failures. It wasnt driver error. I wasnt driving into wrecks or making mistakes or something like that.Ž All times EasternSprint CupAAA 400, 1 p.m., SundayNationwide SeriesDover 200,3 p.m., SaturdayTruck SeriesSmiths 350, 9 p.m., Saturday If you have a question or comment, write: NASCAR This Week, c/o The Gaston Gazette, P.O.

It was the 21st victory in the series for the Toyota driver.CAMPING WORLD TRUCK By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week Carl Edwards, who won nine races in 2008, hasnt won any since. Yet Edwards, who was runnerup to Jimmie Johnson in the 2008 Chase for the Sprint Cup, is back in it this year and actually accumulated more points in the final 10 races of the regular season than any other driver. Consistency has become Edwards key. A 10th-place finish in the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway left Edwards, 31, in eighth place in the Sprint Cup standings, 95 points behind leader Denny Hamlin. Edwards, of Columbia, Mo., felt good to put New Hampshire „ and a decent finish „ behind him. Everyone knows that the meat of the Chase is mile-and-a-half tracks like Kansas and California,Ž he said. You definitely want to get a good start, but I dont think anyone can set the tone of the Chase here (New Hampshire), just because its kind of a unique track.Ž The challenge, of course, is beating Jimmie Johnson, who has won the past four championships. I think that we have proven ƒ that we can score more points than anyone in the series, and thats what it is going to take,Ž said Edwards. Jimmie (Johnson) did a good job ƒ of explaining that you have to have something to hang your hat on. You either have to have wins or you have to be very consistent. You have to have some sort of thing to build your team around. We are building our hopes on the fact that we have shown, over an extended period, that we can score better average finishes than everyone else. Now we just have to go do that. Thats what I am counting on: the ability to go do that.Ž Edwards has spent his entire Sprint Cup career driving Roush Fenway Racings No. 99 Ford. In 2005, his first full season, he wound up third in the Chase behind that years champion, Tony Stewart, and Edwards teammate, Greg Biffle. Consistency is a recent addition to Edwards repertoire. All 16 of his Cup victories have taken place in three seasons „ 2005, 2007 and 20008 „ but he has qualified for the Chase in five of his six full seasons. Edwards won the Nationwide Series championship in 2007.Stewarts performance could bring him backDont count him outV E R S U S 2010 STANDINGSSprint Cup Pts.1. Denny Hamlin 5,230 2.

Cheerios has been a major sponsor in the Sprint Cup Series since 2000, and Clint Bowyer provided it with its “rst victory in New Hampshire. Charlotte Motor Speedway President Marcus Smith has long expressed interest in erecting a gigantic color video monitor at the track. An announcement of a history-making facility addition,Ž in conjunction with Panasonic, was scheduled for Tuesday. Bowyer went through the regular season winless, then won the “rst Chase race, and not for the “rst time. Bowyer duplicated a feat he “rst achieved in 2007. A lap and a halfs worth of fuel and Tony Stewart would be hailed as the favorite now. Instead, some are now suggesting that he has no chance. Hes 124 points out and has nine races to make it up. For the record, Jimmie Johnson “nished 39th in New Hampshire back in 2006 ƒ and still won the championship. This time he was 25th. The winner of the past four Chases is 92 points out. In 2006, he left Loudon trailing by 139. Entering the Chase, the range from “rst to 12th was 60 points. Now, one race in, its 136 from “rst-place Denny Hamlin to 12th-place Matt Kenseth. The points rankings, in order by manufacturer: Toyota, Chevy, Chevy, Toyota, Chevy, Dodge, Chevy, Ford, Ford, Chevy, Chevy, Ford. Bowyers victory leaves four winless drivers „ Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Greg Bif”e and Kenseth „ in the Chase. Johnson won both 2009 races at Dover International Speedway, next stop on the Chase, and Kyle Busch won the race there earlier this year. Johnson Kurt BuschLogano wasnt the only driver whose crash came as a result of impact with Busch, who took the blame later. Maybe I was overdriving it,Ž said Busch. I got into turn one a couple of times over my head, trying to get what seemed to be a sixthto a 10th-place car up into the top five. ƒ I apologize for that. ƒ I wasnt quite in the zone. I wasnt quite feeling it today.Ž NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: You hear so much talk about the drivers not in the Chase staying out of the way of the Chase contenders. It could be that the biggest problem is Chase drivers driving, as Busch himself said, over their heads.ŽKURT BUSCH VS.

Box 1538, Gastonia, N.C. 28053.How about this system?Dear NASCAR This Week, I have followed NASCAR for more than 50 years, back before TV coverage. I keep hearing how NASCAR wants a close Chase, but they dont seem to do anything about it, such as the scoring of points. A few years ago, I kept track of a point system that only gives points based on the final 12 races in the Chase (which is now 10). Example: If a car finished 42nd or so, for example, give them 12 points. After all, 12 cars are the only ones that matter and so on down the line ƒ Dont give a car 43 points for finishing 43rd when the 12 in the Chase are what should count. When I kept track of points this way a few years ago, there were five cars in the last race that had a chance to win the championship ... Talk about excitement for the fans and TV audience! Why not give this some thought? Bill Dunbar Birmingham, Iowa Tony Stewart has long expressed his support of such a plan. NASCAR officials? Not so much. But changes are apparently on the horizon, and maybe your plan will earn some interest.

The run gave him the 12th a nd final spot in the Chase f or the Sprint Cup champio nship, which began Sunday i n New Hampshire. Bowyer won the opener to v ault from 12th in the standi ngs to second, and he's in t he thick of the championship h unt. But as his team celebrated t he victory, rival teams began t o gossip about a potential p roblem with Bowyer's car f rom the week before. NASCAR on Tuesday conf irmed that once the car got b ack to its North Carolina r esearch and development c enter, it was discovered that t he back end of the Chevrolet w as very close to the mandate d tolerance levels. NASCAR still has the car i n its possession, and won't g ive it back to RCR until the t eam meets with the sanctioni ng body. But Pemberton shot down speculation that RCR was given a pass because NASCAR didn't want to spoil the build up to the Chase opener. "If there was something more to this, we would move the car under the dark of night and hide it in a crypt somewhere where nobody can see it," he said. "We're going to get criticized for everything we do anyway. People are through here all the time (R&D Center) and can see what's here. There are no shenanigans." Even if Bowyer's car had failed inspection, it wouldn't have changed the Chase field. The penalty for failed inspections runs anywhere from 50-to-100 points, and Bowyer had a 142-point cushion over Ryan Newman at the end of the Richmond race. Pemberton also said Bowyer's situation was not similar to last year, when NASCAR warned Hendrick Motorsports about the cars Mark Martin and Jimmie Johnson drove to wins in the first two Chase races. In those instances, Sprint Cup Series director John Darby indicated the Hendrick teams were intentionally creeping close to the limits and left themselves "no room to breathe." "We've not seen anything like this from (RCR) this year, and sometimes you can get something off in a particular shop," Pemberton said. "We are trying to be proactive and we want to compare their numbers to ours." t he better off we'll be, b ecause we put so much into o ur conditioning. I think, a fter that third game, (Lake P lacid) ran out of gas a little b it." Sebring got up big early, p ushing to an 18-10 lead b efore the game Dragons g ave one final push. But it wouldn't be enough a s the Streaks held on to c lose it out 25-19. "Sebring always seems to b ring out the best in us," D ragon head coach Linette W ells said. "They finally p layed as a team and the e rrors where limited. All we n eed to do is work on our s erves. "I was very pleased with A lysha Curtis'play at the n et, Kylie Weber led in a ssists but she was also digg ing up a lot of Sebring's h its. She had an excellent g ame. Olivia Goolsby, who n ormally plays on the left s ide, stepped up huge for me o n the right side." Anna West had a big night f or the Streaks, recording 16 k ills and four blocks, while M cKenzie Hargaden added n ine kills. Dino Lower set up the o ffense to the tune of 34 a ssists to go with 14 digs a nd Sam Jansen had three a ces with her and Bianca N ortelus each getting 11 d igs. Sebring was in action at R idge Tuesday before hosting Winter Haven Thursday, while Lake Placid hosted Frostproof Tuesday and will travel to Tenoroc Thursday.

Oriental medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the biochemical model of Western medicine.AcupunctureAcupuncture is the 5000 year old Chinese system of natural healing. Fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points of the body to restore a balanced flow of energy. Through acupuncture, Qi (energy) is allowed to move freely throughout the body, reestablishing balance. This balance helps the body achieve higher levels of health and well-being.Chinese HerbsFor as long as people and plants have coexisted, herbal medicine has been around in some shape or form. It has been found to very helpful in treating conditions such as allergies, ADD and ADHD, menopausal syndrome, chronic pain and many, many other ailments.Jeanie O. Lee, D.A.O.M.

CELEBRATIONS Special to the News-SunAVON PARK The Avon Park Founders Garden Club presented the September Yard of the Month award to Dave and Pam Burnham, 412 Lake Angelo Drive. Their house was built six years ago and the landscape has been a work in progress since then. The development of the landscape plan was evident as you drove past the house during those years. Plants that had originally been put in were replaced as heat and drought during the summer months and cold temperatures in the past year took their toll on the plants. When the landscape was in the planning stages, Dave Burnham wanted an island at the front of the property. He got advice from a landscape company concerning plants and their arrangement. Some of these plants had to be replaced and today the island contains bulia palms and azaleas. At the front of the house is a fountain, encircled by a hedge of loropetalum. Flanking the front entry are hibiscus and potted crotons. Across the front of the house is an arrangement containing pygmy dates palms and azaleas. Other plants used in the landscape design include viburnum and cordyline. The front entry presents a welcoming appearance with its double front doors, two white Cracker Barrel rockers and tile floor. Grass planted up to the front entry was destroyed by cinch bugs. In place of the grass, there are several large concrete squares edged with brick pavers; that adds a very unique appearance to t he yard. The backyard of the hom e contains a fish pond wi th plantings of hibiscus an d bird of paradise. Pots co ntaining crotons, xanad u philodendron, pentas, sma ll palms and ficus are plac ed around the yard. Acamel ia tree is placed against t he fence surrounding the yar d. Apergola adds special inte rest and provides a place to relax and enjoy watchin g their grandson play on h is swing-set. While a professional lan dscape company was used to develop the landscape pla n, the overall maintenance of the yard is done by Da ve Burnham. If you know of a yard th at is deserving of the Yard of the Month award, call 45 21927. Burnhams have Yard of the Month Courtesy pho to Dave and Pam Burnham, 412 Lake Angelo Drive, received the Yard of the Month award presented by the Avon Park Founders Garden Club.

Flyers were passed o ut to the members to post t hroughout the city to tell t he public about the club and i nvite them to join. Since there were events s cheduled Oct. 14-16, it was s uggested that members a ttend the Boktoberfest at B ok Tower Gardens on Oct. 1 6 and hold the October m eeting at the Gardens to c onsolidate the two events. I t was decided, instead, to c hange the scheduled O ctober meeting to Oct. 21. Club members will be s ponsored to attend the D istrict IX meeting to be h eld in Lake Placid on Oct. 1 5.

The weekly program, titled "Regret and Her Horrible Twin, Guilt," was presented by Janet Allwood. She compared several different scenarios and the way they are handled by regret and by guilt. Members learned that regret learns from his or her mistakes and tries to correct them, but guilt blames herself or others and learns nothing from a mistake. Sue Otteson kept the Travel Gift and, if she loses this week, the gift is hers. Karen Goodwin called the roll with 30 members present. Losses were very good, a fact we're extremely proud of after a two-week hiatus. The Best Loser of the Week was Margaret Gause. Linda Haidle achieved her KOPS status today and received her KOPS pin and rousing applause from our group. Linda Haidle, Jackie Perko and Dorothy Van Howe received a gift card for losing four weeks in a row, and Clara Wyatt received a bracelet for her first 10-pound weight loss. O'Boyle divided members into five teams for a new contest, which begins today. Team captains were each handed a medium-sized rock, which they took home with them. The rock is to be brought back each week and the person on the team who doesn't lose or loses the least amount will take the rock home with him or her as a reminder to try harder. The contest will run for eight weeks and the team that loses the most weight will be victorious.TOPS FL 487SEBRING The Sept. 15 meeting of TOPS 487, Sebring had 10 TOPS and three KOPS giving the pledges.

The 25-cent contest had six winners at 45 cents each and Ginna Meissner won $1.10 in the 10-cent contest. The TOPS Fall Rally, to be at the Highlands Ridge in Avon Park on Oct. 9, was discussed. The program given by Charlotte Hardy was from the News-Sun of Sept. 10 on the article "Super Charge your Electrical System with Coconuts." How to stop leg cramps followed with a group discussion.

Trying to declutter your house can be a daunting task. Trying to get your daughter to declutter her room is a major act of God. As we went through her overstuffed and massively cluttered room I volunteered numerous things for the declutter bag. Each time, she plaintively whined, "But I like it!" and I would counter, "But you outgrew this outfit a year ago!" or "We have no room for that furniture anymore." Finally, I took her out for a hot chocolate to defuse the situation and explained to her that even though she likes something, there comes a point when it's time to let it go and move on. The same point can be made with food. Just because you like something doesn't mean it serves a worthy purpose. Take potato chips for example the perfect analogy to nutritional clutter. Their purpose isn't to feed your body, but just crunchy entertainment for your mouth. They leave their clutter however, on your hips, well-being and appetite. You want more and you have no room for it. Potato chips (or another equally unworthy junk food) is robbing your body of its peace. When you eat junk, you feel like junk. We need to learn that eating good healthy food is the equivalent of pampering yourself. Like a bubble bath or massage, even. When you feed yourself and your body food that is worthy of your time and effort, you are giving tender loving care to yourself. The good, nutritious food that you need for bodily function (not entertainment) will cause your moods to change for the better, your energy to soar and make your skin glow! Eating healthy can be a delicious experience, I promise! And because I try to live up to my promises as best I can, I have a healthy recipe for you that your entire family will love. Aquick note: To cut back on the carbs, you can cut the pasta in half and stir in a 10ounce bag of baby spinach when you add the chicken mixture at the end of the recipe. The heat from the ingredients will cause the spinach to wilt perfectly.Barbecued Chicken PastaServes 6 16 ounces Rigatoni, Mostaccioli or other medium pasta shape uncooked 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 4 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into 1/2-inch cubes 1/4 cup green bell pepper, sliced thin 1/4 cup red onion, sliced thin 1 clove garlic, pressed 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce (your favorite) 1/4 cup hickory-smoked barbecue sauce 1/2 cup grated Provolone cheese 1/2 cup grated Mozzarell a 3 green onions-trimmed and sliced thin 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped Prepare pasta according t o package directions. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and saute stirring occasionally, until browned on all sides, about three minutes. Add bell pep per, onion and garlic and cook until pepper turns bright green, about one minute. Add Marinara sauc e and barbecue sauce and hea t just to boiling. Remove fro m heat. Drain pasta, reserving 1/ 4 cup of water and return pas ta to the pot. Add chicken mix ture and cheese to the pot. Stir over low heat until pas ta is coated with sauce. Add enough of reserved cooking liquid, if necessary, to mak e the sauce lightly coat the pasta. Transfer pasta to serv ing bowls and top with scal lions and cilantro.

I do OK approaching older w omen for conversation, but become t ongue-tied with someone under 25. I w ould like to meet someone special a nd develop a relationship with her, but a t this rate it's not going to happen a nytime soon. I am told by friends and family that I 'm handsome, charming and have a g ood sense of humor. There will be h oliday parties coming up soon, and m y friends will be inviting some new p eople. How can I learn to strike up a c onversation? I'm having a real probl em here. H.P. in Miami Beach DearH.P.: Not everyone is born w ith the gift of gab. In fact, most peop le aren't. But a smile will tell others t hat you're approachable. It's the univ ersal way of saying, "I'm friendly." If y ou want to get to know someone, walk o ver and say, "Hi, I'm Hal' what's y our name?" Introducing yourself isn't b eing pushy. It's being friendly. As I say in my booklet "How to Be P opular," the surest cure for shyness is t o forget yourself and concentrate on t he other person. Everyone can be c harming. Charm is putting the other person at ease, making him or her feel comfortable and important. Believe it or not, being a good listener will do more for you than being a good talker. Give people a chance to talk about themselves, and they'll think YOU'RE a great conversationalist. But, when asking questions as a means to get the other person talking, take care that your questions are tactful, discreet and not too personal. Stay current on what's going on in the world and in the headlines. The more informed you are, the better company you will be. But don't be a knowit-all. People who come off like they're an authority on everything are about as welcome as a skunk at a garden party. That's not to say it pays to be ignorant; rather that the know-it-alls make those of us who are just average feel insecure and uncomfortable. When talking to people, look them in the eye. And when you're being spoken to, focus your attention on the person who's addressing you. Nothing turns people off quicker than trying to carry on a conversation with someone whose eyes are constantly wandering to see who just came in or who else is in the room. I offer many more tips on how to be socially successful in my booklet, which can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus a check or money order for $6 (U.S. funds), to Dear Abby, Popularity Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL610540447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. And remember, a good conversationalist doesn't brag, and doesn't constantly put himself down. Agood conversationalist is an upper. Find something positive to say. Be open and listen to other people's viewpoints. And don't have a stiff drink for "courage" because it loosens the tongue and can cause a social disaster.

LIVING 12B PAGE News-Sun Wednesaday, September 22, 2010 FAMILYFEATURES Hosting get-togethers at home can often be stressful with all of the elements to consider the invitation, the dŽcor, and most importantly, the food and beverages Planning the perfect party can overwhelm even the most seasoned hostess, but there are easy solutions for making your event memorable without becoming inundated. Jen Isham, entertaining expert and finalist on "The Next Food Network Star," offers her suggestions for hosting a hassle-free social gathering.Chances are that your guests won't recall the design of your invitations or the color of your cocktail napkins, so use an eco-friendly electronic invitation with an appropriate theme and stick wi th matching monochrome plates and flatware. That leaves you time to focus on the factors that will stick in their minds most the cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. If you're not exactly a master mixologist but still want to wow your guests with drinks, try serving Godiva Liqueur on the rocks. Isham notes, "This simple drink can be pre-poured before guests arrive so that they have a beverage in hand within minutes of arriving. Try chilling the bottle before hand, then just add ice when they enter the party. Your visitors will undoubtedly be grateful for the warm (or cool) welcome. Once guests have arrived and mingling has commenced, you'll have a bit of time to use your creativit y behind the bar. Your arrival drink can easily become the beverage du jour with some festive garnishes. "Try using melted chocolate or different colored sug ars to rim glasses of Godiva Liqueur over ice," suggests Isham.Moisten the rim of the glass and fill a shallow bowl or plate with your garnish of choice.Hold the glass sideways and dab the rim into the garnish while slowly turning so that only the oute r edge is covered.Thensimplyaddice,usingtongs,andpourGodiv a Liqueur into the glass for a tempting and festive drink! Consider stocking up on all varieties so your guests can have their pick of Chocolate, White Chocolate, Mocha and Caramel flavors. For those who are lookin g to go above and beyond in delivering the perfect cock tail presentation, use different forms of ice and glassware to provide variety. When it comes to planning party food, the trick is to keep it simple.No-cook appetizers are a perfect no-fuss option f or entertaining, which leaves more time for socializing with guests. Isham says, "Assorted nuts, cheeses, olives and preserved fruits in silver or gold bowls make for a lovely and chic appetizer spread with no time wasted slaving away in the kitchen." For an upscale hors d'oeuvre that still saves time, try Isham's Bruschetta Bar with Toppings Trio recipes.Rather than serving buffet-style in your dining room, Isham suggests utilizing all areas of the house with food and beverage stations. This will lead to your guests mingling and moving about so no one has the chance to be a wallflower.Another way to encourage guests to get to know each other is to organize carpools according to neighborhood. This not only will forge new frien dships but also promotes having designated drivers so everyone will get home safely. It is, in fact, possible to entertain with ease and still keep it chic just remember to focus your energy an d creativity where it matters and keep the rest simple.Photo courtesy of Fotolia B ruschettaBar w ithToppingsTrio B y Jen Isham T oast slices of baguette in the oven.
