By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comAVON PARK Residents and visitors walked up and down Museum Avenue Saturday, enjoying this year's Oktoberfest. Families could be seen enjoying the sights, sounds and treats of the event. Food vendors, a car collection, and the K-9 training demonstration were among the day's aspects. The polka group "The Bavarian Wonderkinds" provided the music that filled the street. "We've been together nine or 10 years," said one of only two charter members left in the band. The Wonderkinds were dressed head to toe in traditional polka/German attire and were happy to provide the sounds of clarinets, tuba, trumpet and several other instruments for the crowd of spectators. Further down the street was the brats and sauerkraut tent where a line was beginning to form and the smells enticed more to stop by.

In May, the IRS requested a conside rable amount of paperwork from the cou nty and began an investigation into ho w employee benefits were listed on W-2s at the end of the year. Certain benefits are taxable, accordin g to the IRS, and the county had exclud ed informing employees that pants, and tshirts issued to some county employe es could be worn outside work and th us were deemed to be taxable benefits. In her report to the county after fo ur months of research, Agent Sher ee Cunningham from the St. Petersburg IR S office wrote that "The fact that t he employer prohibits employees fro m wearing the clothing when not on offici al business does not transform items of clothing from adaptable-to-street wear to not-adaptable-to-street wear." The IRS letter also included $700 for tshirts for Emergency Operations Cent er employees, and $22,000 worth of pan ts for the Animal Control, Road and Bridg e, EOC, Parks and Recreation, Engineerin g, General Services and Solid Waste depa rtments. In a nutshell, if the employee can we ar the pants outside of work, they a re deemed benefits by the IRS. Agent Cunningham also made t he same point about jeans, khakis an d slacks, all adaptable for "street wear." County pays IRS$9,400 for employees' pants, shirts County-issued duds could be worn off duty, IRS investigator says Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Whether because of economic factors or feeling unfulfilled with their current careers, many people often find themselves wanting to make a change in their professional lives. The Educator Preparation Institute (EPI) at South Florida Community College provides a convenient alternative for people who want to make a change by becoming a teacher. "Traditional teacher education programs are four-year programs and require full-time internships," said Colleen Rafatti, director, EPI. "EPI holds classes on Saturdays which allows workers and parents to keep their current careers and jobs while they complete the program." EPI was established at SFCC in 2006. Since that time, 36 of its graduates have earned professional teaching credentials, and 82 percent of those have gone o n to teach in Highlands, Harde e, and DeSoto counties. Students in the program have ranged in a ge from their mid-20s to mid-6 0s and have included young mot hers, career changers, ear ly retirees, military veterans, an d people who have always want ed to be teachers.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comLAKE PLACID County Commissioners will take a close look at changes to the noise ordinance and what to do with barking dogs on Tuesday, but their decision will ultimately center around property rights, according to Dan Rutkosky. Rutkosky and his tenant complained to the county in 2008 about barking dogs at the neighboring kennel disturbing the peace. Anyone who visits to Rutkosky's place can clearly hear the barking waver in and out as the wind changes, despite the 600 feet or orange trees between the two properties. "We are not dog haters ," Rutkosky said last we ek while holding his own do g, ironically named Karma. "But it comes and goe s, and honestly, I cann ot explain why it gets so lou d.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Florida Hospital Sebring F oundation gave a $150,000 donation to the F lorida Hospital Heartland Medical Center's H eart & Vascular Center. This donation is the s econd gift given as part of the Foundation's t hree year, $500,000 pledge to the growth and d evelopment of the Heart & Vascular Center a nd will be used to support the center's C ardiac Angioplasty Program. To date, the F oundation has fulfilled $260,000 of the p ledge over a two-year period. In March 2009, Florida Hospital Heartland M edical Center's Heart & Vascular Center t ransformed cardiac health care in the H eartland community when it began the first c ardiac angioplasty program in Highlands County, which included an interventional catheterization lab. Prior to the creation of this program, only general and invasive (or diagnostic) cardiac procedures were available locally and patients had to travel out of town for interventional procedures and treatments. Now, interventional cardiology treatment is available at the Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center's Heart & Vascular Center in Sebring. The Center's team of physicians includes Dr. Roger Wittum, cardiology interventionalist; Dr. Alan Bennie, radiology interventionalist; and Dr. Myron St. Louis, vascular surgeon. They are able to intervene in the patient's health, treat and/or fix the patients'conditions.

News-Sun staffHARDEE COUNTY A35-year-old Avon Park woman died Thursday morning when her van ran off the road and flipped into a canal. According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Juana Islas was driving a 1998 Mercury van east on Crewsville Road less than a mile west of Klein Road when for some reason the van ran off the road onto the south shoulder. Islas over-corrected and spun off the road. The report said the van then traveled up an embankment and into a grove canal on the south side of Crewsville Road, overturning several times and coming to rest on its left side partially submerged in the bottom of the canal. Islas, who was wearing her seat belt according to the report, died at the scene. The investigation into whether alcohol was a factor in the accident is still under way. Islas was transported to the District 10 Medical Examiner's Office.

Vickie McClain, taking part in the Idol for the second year, reacts to hearing she's advanced to the semifinals. By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING The weather was perfect Thursday night as the third, and last, adult qualifying round took place for the Heartland Idol 2010. With only six contestants, emcee Don Elwell had time to talk with each contestant. That gave the audience an opportunity to get to know them better. They found out that Kevin Milan, 18 and a student at South Florida Community College, spends his time after class in a common area, playing his guitar and singing for his fellow students. And that Vickie McClain's husband had told her not to enter the contest this year. He was at home, thinking she had only come to listen. The round was one of the best sung this season. As if to prove that point, two contestants tied for first place, so two other hopefuls also advanced to the next round. Ashley Castillo, who was drafted by her mother and entered at the last possible moment, had not made the cut in her previous appearance. She advanced this time.

Arc's WienerFest 2010 set for Nov. 13 in Avon Park Associated Press WriterTALLAHASSEE F lorida employers will b egin paying 7.8 percent m ore next year to insure t heir workers for on-thej ob injuries under a rate i ncrease approved Friday. State Insurance C ommissioner Kevin M cCarty said the new w orkers compensation r ate is technically a denial o f a slightly higher 8.3 p ercent increase sought b y the National Council o n Compensation I nsurance, which repres ents insurers. If the council accepts h is findings, McCarty s aid Florida's rates still w ill be 61.9 percent lower t han they were seven y ears ago when the L egislature passed a law d esigned to reduce premiu ms. "The rate increase that h as been justified would s till give Florida the lowe st rates in the Southeast a nd likely keep us in the t op 10 states nationally f or most affordable worke rs compensation insura nce," McCarty said in a s tatement. "The NCCI's p rior seven annual filings r epresent the largest cons ecutive cumulative d ecrease in rates in our s tate's history." Before the law was c hanged in 2003, Florida r egularly had the highest o r second highest premiu ms in the nation. McCarty approved the i ncrease after receiving t estimony from industry e xperts and the state's i nsurance consumer advoc ate at a hearing Oct. 5. H e said the lower-thanr equested amount resulte d from using a different m edical trend factor than t he council had proposed. It'll add just pennies to t he annual cost of insuri ng each worker, said T amela Perdue, general c ounsel for Associated I ndustries of Florida, a b usiness trade organizat ion. "Nobody likes for their c osts to go up," Perdue s aid, but she added, "This i s really not as drastic as w hat some other costs h ave been." By comparison, she s aid, some employers h ave been hit with doub le-digit increases for h ealth insurance. Perdue p raised McCarty for keeping the employers' i nterests in the forefront." The rate increase could h ave been about a perc entage point lower if G ov. Charlie Crist hadn't v etoed a bill the L egislature passed earlier t his year, Perdue said. It would have limited h ow much doctors could c harge for repackaged d rugs the provide to i njured state workers. C rist wrote that the measu re was rushed through w ithout thorough vetting. Last year, McCarty init ially approved a 6.4 percent rate increase. Workers comp rates going up 7.8 percent

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Five of Highlands County's most well-known businesses gathered Saturday morning to go head to head in fierce competition in the annual Corporate Cup at the Highlands County YMCA. This year's teams were: Suntrust Bank, Delray Plants, Heacock Insurance, The Palms, and Highlands Independent Bank. Each of the five teams had a minimum of 15 members 18 years of age or older. Each team member competed in numerous contests including a basketball shoot-out, an egg race and a Frisbee toss. The teams were extremely competitive and cheers from family members were heard all around the YMCA. After the "Frantic Frisbee" tiebreaker between Suntrust and The Palms, the teams migrated to the basketball courts for a friendly game and shoot-out. Lorie and Steve Austin of The Palms collected 28 out of 30 Frisbees. Following the basketball event, the teams competed in multiple water contests including relays and a boat race, the "Eggsecutive Race" and an all-out tug-of-war. Many families and ki ds were in attendance at t he event. It was a friendly an d fun day of competition th at each of the teams were exc ited to be a part of it.

A h, there's nothing like that first real d rop in humidity and t emperature to r efresh the soul and e ase the mind.After months of hiding in o ur refrigerated homes, we b egin to fling our windows w ide open, allowing fresh b reezes to air out our rooms. Carved pumpkins guard f ront doors; amplified sounds o f high school football carry b eyond the playing field; shado ws lengthen as the Earth s hifts in its orbit and the sun l owers in the sky. It can all mean only one t hing it's time for winter r esidents to start flowing south, f irst as a trickle, then in a flood, o r so we hope. The return of old friends and t he arrival of new faces creates a welcome energy. Sounds we've forgotten from the clink of horse shoes, to the ting of softball aluminum bats blend with the ever-present natural music of frog songs, jay calls and insect buzz. Lawnmower races rev up, the Highlands Little Theatre's season begins, places closed during the summer open for business as their owners come back from vacation. Abustle begins with more cars on the road and longer lines in our stores. Now is the time to adjust ourselves to this difference of winter, when we need to start earlier to get where we're gong on time. Yes, travel slows as winter residents brake while searching for street names, or sightsee, or simply enjoy having no deadlines hanging over their heads. On the other hand, we need to remember these minor inconveniences have a very positive side. Winter residents regenerate volunteer pools, energize organizations and bring a welcome revenue stream back into the county. So, while we wait through two light changes where just last month we zipped through the intersection without stopping, or listen to yet another individual tell us "Except for the weather it's better up north," we need to count our blessings. Highlands County still has the calm of the country, but stores that are open all night. There are museums, art galleries, and specialty shops, as well as quiet fishing holes and bird-watching spots. There is no smog; kids can ride bikes in the street; neighbors join for potluck dinners; and a handshake still has meaning. Winter residents make this way of life possible. They save us from factories belching out fumes. And they have earned their time in the sun. Remember that retirees have paid their dues over the years, working on the clock, raising children, paying taxes. Let's not shake our fists in frustration, but think of their value and give a friendly wave instead.

Not that I'm keeping track. Thanks to my Smartphone, I've been able to keep track of my email. But that's about it. And I use my cell a lot more than I use the house phone in fact, we didn't even know the phones were out until someone came over this morning saying they'd tried to call. No, the big loss is the Internet. And for me, it's big. Once I realized there was a problem, I tried to fix it myself. When that didn't work, I called Customer Support. I don't want to say anything bad about Customer Support, because I may need them again in the future. But because I know something about how computers work, I get annoyed when they talk to me as if I couldn't tell a modem from a router. Why can't they just take my word for it that it's broken and they need to fix it? Seriously, they were sympathetic and said they'd have someone out sometime the following afternoon. All I had to do was wait until they got here and fixed whatever was wrong. I'm a mature woman. I was raised in a time the Internet didn't exist. Surely I could survive a few hours without it, can't I? Right? I mean, there's no reason for my palms to be sweaty and for me to be agitated in general, just because my crops are withering in Farmville and I can't get a story e-mailed to a new market and Okay, so I'm not handling this very well. Sue me. You can probably find a lawyer on the Internet who will help. The problem is I've grown accustomed to doing so much on the Internet that I feel like a lost soul without it. I use the Internet every day, several times a day, for everything from doing this column to refilling medications. Yes, people have writing careers and entertain themselves and do day-to-day stuff all the time without ever touching the Internet. These people probably also churn their own butter and cook vegetables without using a microwave. They a re made of stronger stuff than I am. My mother-in-law is one of these people. She doesn' t churn her own butter, but I bet she could if she had to. She gets along fine without the Internet, unlike Don an d I. Yes, even Don has come to use the Internet for various things. I even taught hi m how to place an Internet phone call the other day, an d he had a pleasant conversation with a preacher we sup port in Guyana. I was so proud of him. Hmmmaybe the Intern et going down was the fact th e system went into shock ove r Don's accomplishment? Nah, had to be a coincidence. To be honest, I'm not sur e how much longer I can hold out. My email is piling upthere're websites I haven't paid a visit toI'm shaking, anxious, and feel sick to my stomach Waitwho's that at the door? Who is this golden haired being? An angel? NO IT'S THE REPAIR PERSON! HURRAY!! I'M SAVED! So about 24 hours after I lost it, I now have Internet and phones again. Life is once again as it should be. And I survived the lack of it with minimal long term damage. Watch out, people! I just might try cooking vegetabl es without using a microwave next. Who knows what I am capable of?

The results using one item per p roduct were: total cost at Sweetbay w as $183.24: at Publix it was $191.73 a nd at Winn-Dixie it was $203.38. After listing the lowest cost of each p roduct and going to each store I could b uy all the products for $178.21. All prices were regular prices and i gnoring the special sales cost, so it is o bviously better to check the sales each w eek before shopping. I personally s ave the most money by stocking up on t he BOGO specials of the things we d efinitely use. While checking prices and confirmi ng sizes, I found numerous items w here the net weight or count had r educed in the package. Much like coff ee did years ago. Less weight, same c ost. Also, I found some items where t he larger size was not the best price of t he item. Pays to check the per-ounce p rice, also. Good luck in finding bargains, and c hoosing which store to shop. William E. Clagg Lake PlacidRichie deserves your vote E ditor: As the former District 6 president of t he FMO for the last five years it was m y pleasure to help protect the lifestyle a nd interests of the people in Highlands C ounty who live in manufactured h omes on leased and rented land. That p osition led me to become active in m any committees and among them the H ighlands County Homeowners A ssociation. The chairman of the (Highlands County Homeowners Association) for the last 10 years is Jack Richie, who is the Republican candidate for the District 4 county commission seat. I am currently serving with Jack on the Veterans Council, Lake Istokpoga Management Committee, and the Highlands County Habitat Conservation Advisory Committee to name a few. His leadership skills and dedication to each project he helps with is quickly apparent as is his love for Highlands County and his desire to make it the best it can be. With our county's economy deeply harmed by the recession/depression we need someone with Jack's skill and experience to lead us the next four years. His involvement with numerous county committees over the years as a volunteer has prepared him for this next step to commissioner. I'm not real impressed about the "change" I was promised by another Democrat so I think I'll start with a change at the local government level. As a conservative citizen and one who also cares about this county and its future, I'm asking you to join me in voting for Jack Richie for county commissioner on Nov. 2. Rick Ingler SebringRandom thoughts on politicsEditor: Don Elwell will make a fine commissioner. The people who were to blame for the housing market failing are at it again cheating on as much as their minds can work; they are in trouble again. Obama's plans can't work to help the home owners if the banks don't mediate in good faith. The servers and banks make more money foreclosing on homes. You know what that means even a slower recovery. Maybe now home owners that are not in foreclosure will have a chance to sell them. Only if the banks will let them, which they are not doing now. This mortgage mess is not going to clear up in 30 to 60 days. I wish the Republicans would stop going so far back in history to make a point on the economy. When it finally comes back, and it will, we will be able to pay it off ... if they don't give the money back to the rich. Kenny Melvin SebringClass size not the most important thingEditor: Once again Florida voters are asked to indulge in the absurdity of limiting class size by the Florida Constitution. An issue which should be decided by School Boards with reference to school needs and fiscal concerns is instead locked into the organic document of government, the Constitution. Our children would be vastly better served if we concern ourselves with enlarging the curriculum of history, government and civic studies, taught by well-informed and well-compensated teachers ratherthan divert our attention to the size of the classroom and be deluded into believing we have done something beneficial for educate. Letters to the editor reflecting clear misunderstandings of the provisions and purpose of constitutional provisions and laws is ample evidence that we have not done our job adequately. If voters are to make intelligent decisions they must first be better schooled in history, how government works, its proper role, civics and current and world affairs. Then, perhaps, they will be less likely to be deceived by slogans or misled by opportunists seeking to promote an agenda which is the antipathy of our voters needs. There is no substitute for knowledge. Fact-based information is critical to good governance and the election of good candidates.

I wish I'd been aware of this y ears ago. I could have stopped w orking and lived on the dole and I would have avoided years of a lot o f just-plain drudgery. Just think, back in those lean y ears when I was driving back and f orth every day between Los A ngeles and San Diego to broadc ast to the only two stations carryi ng my radio show for what a mounted to a small pittance b aseball caps. It got so onerous I begged my m other, Jane Wyman, for help. She s aid, "Shut up and keep driving." S o that's what I did. Now I wonder w hy. I could have gotten on the w elfare gravy train years ago and l ived a life of ease. An old board game known as k nown as "Public Assistance W hy Bother Working for a L iving?" was banned back in the 80s, I guess for being politically incorrect. Anyway, it's now been revived. It acts as a guide for getting on the dole, for boarding the welfare gravy train. It's been rechristened "Obozo's America: Why Bother Working For ALiving?" According to its makers it features 50 Welfare Benefit Cards and 50 Working Person's Cards, all "based on the preposterous notion that a Marxist clown, running on the vague and shaky platform of hope and change, could become President of The United States." It doesn't say whether or not there's a Nancy Pelosi card. It sounds like fun something I can do to wile away all that free time I'll have when I stop working. According to its makers: "Get your initial $1,000 cash grant at the First of the Month, then maneuver along Obozo's Welfare Promenade. Get cash for your out-of-wedlock children. Draw from a stack of Welfare Benefit Cards. Get extra cash from Saturday Night crimes: Gambling, Armed Robbery, Drugs, and Prostitution." Maybe Mrs. Pelosi might recommend providing a free copy of the game as another welfare benefit. Seriously. There is a great danger here. What she's talking about is right out of Karl Marx's socialist playbook. Allegedly a devout Catholic who somehow manages to get around the Church's stand on baby killing via legalized abortion, she has ignored the warnings of numerous popes about socialism. Here, for example, is what Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903) had to say about socialism: "We speak of that sect of men who, under various and almost barbarous names, are called socialists, communists, or nihilists, and who, spread over all the world, and bound together by the closest ties in a wicked confederacy, no longer seek the shelter of secret meetings, but, openly and boldly marching forth in the light of day, strive to bring to a head what they have long been planning the overthrow of all civil society whatsoever. Surely, these are they who, as the sacred Scriptures testify, Defile the flesh, despise dominion and blaspheme majesty.'(Jud. 8)." (Encyclical Quod ApostoliciMuneris, December 28, 1878, n. 1) Here's what the present Pope, Benedict XVI says: "We do not need a State which regulates and controls everything" "The State which would provide everything, absorbing everything into itself, would ultimately become a mere bureaucracy incapable of guaranteeing the very thing which the suffering person every person needs: namely, loving personal concern. We do not need a State which regulates and controls everything, but a State which, in accordance with the principle of subsidiarity, generously acknowledges and supports initiatives arising from the different social forces and combines spontaneity with closeness to those in need. In the end, the claim tha t just social structures would make works of charity superfluous mask s a materialist conception of man: the mistaken notion that man can live by bread alone'(Mt 4:4; cf. Dt 8:3) ? a conviction that demea ns man and ultimately disregards all that is specifically human." (Encyclical Deus Caritas Est, December 25, 2005, n. 28) On second thought, I guess I'll just keep working and earning a living.

Hank Mattson Lake PlacidTake care of yourself E ditor: Have you been hearing a lot lately it must be going around" or "it's a bad t ime of year?" We in the healthcare p rofession are hearing it about 10 times a day. How many sniffles and sneezes or barky coughs do you hear just going into a public place? It is definately something that seems to be getting peoples'attention. The problem is, it seems to be a vicious circle. I think most of the parents in this county can agree that it's hard not to send your child to school nowadays because these poor kids don't seem to catch any breaks from their teachers. If the kids are out sick, they have a hard time getting their make-up work or having time to do it. My children don't want to miss any school even when they are sick because on top of regular work there is the make-up work that they are worried about. So we resort to sending them to school sick. Plus, there is so much of a demand for us parents to hold on to the jobs that we actually have that we are afraid to maybe take that time off to be with the children. By this time the germs from the kids are probably dormant in our bodies so that we are all passing it to our co-workers. When we get sick, there surely isn't time for us to take off of work and take care of ourselves because those demanding or scarce jobs that we have won't let us. This seems to be especially prevelant to healthcare workers. There still seems to be no such thing as your doctor or nurse being out sick. What it all boils down to is that for all of our various reasons and with the type of commuinty that we live in along with the fast paced world of everyone wanting what they want when they want it there is only one person to look out for you and it is you. Take care of yourselves. At this time of year double up on the vitamin C. Stay away from public places. Wash your hands. Get your flu and pneumonia shots and do not go to the doctor unless you absolutely have to. Angela Long Sebring Continued from page 4ATODAY'SLETTERS

Rutkosky played video and a udio recorded on his propert y of the barking to show that t he noise was excessive, even d eafening at times. "He has property and busin ess rights, but so do we. As y ou can tell from just today, y ou can clearly hear the barki ng is excessively loud at t imes," Rutkosky explained. Code enforcement agreed t hat the dogs were too noisy, a nd cited the owner of the D awg House Mike Finch for v iolating code in 2008. Finch and his attorney a rgued to the Special M agistrate Pam Karlson that t he county ordinance was p oorly written, and that his b usiness of boarding dogs h as an exemption to be there. Finch has owned the 17y ear-old kennel since 2006, a nd has made more than $ 20,000 in improvements to help dampen the sound, he said. Magistrate Karlson agreed, ruled for Finch, and everyone thought the matter was closed until County Attorney Ross filed more paperwork in district court in September, two years after Karlson's decision. Macbeth's action surprised the commission, and Finch, on Oct. 5 during a board meeting. "I don't know why we are rehashing this," Finch said at the meeting. But, despite the legal costs, there are valid arguments on both sides of the Dawg House issue, according to both Finch and Rutkosky. "We have to rent this property to pay the mortgage, and we have had to keep the rent low and make special lease agreements in order to keep it rented," Rutkosky said. "But the taxes and the insurance still goes up every year. "We have a great tenant in here currently, but we are always in jeopardy of losing them when the barking starts. And the property value is greatly reduced because of the noise," Rutkosky said. "He has rights too. He has the right to enjoy his property and we have the right to keep our livelihood," Finch said in an interview right after the county meeting. Finch, and his customers, have argued that the community could lose a significant facility for pet boarding because of the ordinance, which prompted an outflow of emotion towards Rutkosky and his tenant. "Well, we have had some disturbing calls from folks who are taking sides about this, and it is clear that the issue has to be addressed," Rutkosky said. "We are not trying to be the bad guys here, I've owned the property for 10 years, and if I knew that this was going to be this big of an issue when I bought, I would have never signed the mortgage. I walked this place over several times just before we bought, and there was not a problem. My wife and I decided not to live here after we discovered the noise problem. And like I said, there are good days and bad days, but the bad days are like you are sitting right inside with the dogs," he added. "Like I said, we don't hate dogs, and I feel he has every right to run his business, but this has got to be solved," Rutkosky said. The agenda for the Tuesday meeting states that the board will have a workshop to consider changes to the ordinance Both Finch and Rutkosky said they will be there.

"This is one of the most difficult f ights that any country faces today. We s aw it over the last couple of decades in C olombia," she said. "We are watching d rug traffickers undermine and corrupt g overnments in Central America, and w e are watching the brutality and barb arity of their assaults on governors and m ayors, the press, as well as each other, i n Mexico." Similar remarks Clinton made before the Council on Foreign Relations prompted President Barack Obama, among others, to say that Mexico was in much better shape politically and economically than Colombia was during the 1980s. Government officials in Mexico also rejected Clinton's comparison. "These drug cartels are now taking on a lot of the attributes of these terrorists and insurgent groups we see around the world," Clinton said Friday. "For the first time, they are using car bombings. You see them being much more organized in a kind of paramilitary way." Clinton described Friday's speaking engagement as only her third domestic public appearance since joining Obama's cabinet last year. She said she also has been surprised that some political commentators have disagreed with her insistence that the United States shares responsibility for drug-related violence in Mexico. Americans have demonstrated an "insatiable demand" for illegal drugs, and the U.S. has failed to crack down on the thousands and thousands of weapons trafficked into Mexico, Clinton repeated on Friday. "I thought it was an obvious thing to say," she said. In prepared remarks, Clinton also praised Northern California's technology companies as instrumental to the administration's goals for promoting peace and prosperity abroad. Clinton called Silicon Valley a model for government efforts to promote what she termed the "freedom to connect." She gave the example of young students in Syria using cell phones and Facebook to alert the world about beatings inflicted by their teachers.

A n experienced performer, M athis has sung on radio and i n front of audiences. Mathis'experience showed a s she took hold of the gospel I Am a Friend of God" and o wned it. "I always love it when you s ing," said judge Larry M oore. McClain, 61, was a comed y match for Elwell. When he asked what she d id for a living she replied t hat she was retired. "I do n othing," she said, "but it t akes all day." When he asked her why s he came back a second year s he said, "I wanted to prove y ou can't be too old to make a fool of yourself." Then McClain nearly b rought Idol founder Diana W alker to tears when she d edicated her performance of Wish You Were Here" to the m emory of Walker's grandfat her and the late Jim M cCollum, who had been a e nthusiastic supporter of the c ontest and a pull no punches j udge. "Such a big voice coming o ut of such little feet," judge R ooter Rush said to the petite s inger when she was done. The audience was delighte d when she advanced to the s emifinals, everyone wonderi ng how her husband would r eact. The fourth contestant to a dvance, Milan received p raise for his perseverance. H e had sung in each qualifyi ng round, listened to the j udge's comments and i mproved every time. Thursday night he i mpressed everyone with his r endition of "Hey Jude." "You were 100 percent bett er," said Merano. "You p icked a song within your r ange and delivered that s ong." Moore agreed. "You have t aken every criticism like a m an," he said. "Tonight was b y far your best (performa nce)." The remaining two cont estants did not make it to the s emifinals. Donnie Schaeffer, 39, may h ave made a strategic mist ake by waiting for the final q ualifying round. The judges w ere not impressed with his s ong choice, "Big Green T ractor," which is actually a l ove song that does not involve heavy machinery. They felt Schaeffer didn't give himself a chance to show his true range or ability. While Sheriff Susan Benton, the evening's celebrity judge, enjoyed Frank Hardy, 61, and his rendition of "Suzy Q" "I've had "Suzy Q" sung to me before," she said, "so thank you" he too did not make the cut. The first semifinal is on Thursday when the 16 contestants will have to sing arena rock songs.

s kills that new teachers need t o be successful in their c lassrooms. Students who c omplete the program r equirements receive a P rofessional Educators C ertificate which is accepted t hroughout Florida. Graduates of the EPI have f ound their share of successe s following completion of t he program. Rocio French, a 2 007 graduate, was working a s a paraprofessional at Avon P ark Youth Academy when s he decided to enroll in EPI. F rench had a bachelor's d egree in business and mark eting, and had previously b een a professor at the U niversity of Lima in Peru. "I wanted to go back to t eaching," French said. "I s aw the opportunity with the E PI, and I took it." French d iscovered through EPI that t eaching in a university and t eaching younger students w ere very different. "While t eaching in the university e nvironment, I found that I w as mainly presenting the i nformation. However, EPI o ffered many different teachi ng strategies to help students u nderstand and comprehend t he material to reach the b asic levels of students. We s pent time focusing on many d ifferent types of learning s tyles and helping students w ork as a team. These are v ery important to help y ounger learners." French is now Avon Park Y outh Academy's math and i ntensive reading teacher, l ead teacher, and administrat ive dean. "Rocio works with h igh-risk, incarcerated t eenage boys," Rafatti said. They are inspired by her. S he has empathy for them a nd gives them hope that t heir futures can be better." F rench has won teacher of t he year four years in a row a nd was even nominated for a n ational teaching award. Recent EPI graduate Travis R app also enrolled in the prog ram for a career change. "I w orked in the financial servi ces industry and when the m arket dropped off I had to m ake a decision," said Rapp, w ho decided education was t he right choice for him b ecause his father, wife, b rother, and sister-in-law are a lso educators. "Education is a solid career to get into." Rapp is currently teaching s eventh grade math at S ebring Middle School. Every day is different in t eaching, but the program p repared me in every way it c ould," Rapp said. "It really h elps those of us who do not h ave an educational backg round." Many EPI graduates have s uccessfully found jobs i mmediately following their c ompletion of the program. L ake Placid Elementary S chool kindergarten teacher H eather Boyce was hired o nly a month after she comp leted the program. Boyce j oined EPI following her coll ege graduation. "I had my b achelor's degree in advertisi ng and public relations, but I r eally wanted to be a t eacher," Boyce said. Boyce h ad taught dance for three y ears and enjoyed working w ith kids. Because EPI o ffered Saturday schedules, it a llowed her to follow her d ream while still being able t o keep her job working at a b ank. She completed the prog ram in 10 months. "The instructors were all l ocal educators, and they d ove right in to the material," B oyce said. "They focused o n the practical applications a nd what really happens in a c lassroom." Boyce also f ound the observation and f eedback by other professiona ls beneficial. "It is a quick and intense program but it is definitely worthwhile for self-motivated people looking to touch the lives of students." "Heather found her former career to be unsatisfying," Rafatti said. "She had dreamed of becoming a kindergarten teacher. She finished the program in June and had a full-time job as a kindergarten teacher by July. She was a dynamic student." In August, SFCC's EPI Program expanded to include Glades and Hendry counties and also began offering a transitional program for firstyear teachers. While it covers the same material as the traditional program, the transitional program has fewer classroom meetings and incorporates Web-based work. It allows teachers who have a temporary teaching certificate to earn their permanent Professional Educators Certificate. "The basic idea behind the EPI program was to help people who wanted a career change but also wanted to stay in the community," Rafatti said. "The majority of our graduates have found local teaching opportunities, so we've been very successful with that."

The Palm Beach Post reported Saturday that at least three shelters have halted adoptions of black cats before Oct. 31 because of fears that the cats will be used for sacrificial rituals. Or potential owners looking for a Halloween party decoration will return the cat days later. Karen Buchan with the county's Animal Care and Control says this avoids having the cat in an "unsafe environment." The county also stops black cat ado ptions on any Friday t he 13th. Buchan says black ca ts are already the least like ly to get adopted in most she lters because of "bad luc k" superstitions or owners wh o want a more colorful cat.Bald eagle dies after flying into power lineFORTWALTON BEAC H Abald eagle found de ad after flying into a pow er pole in Fort Walton Bea ch has been recovered b y wildlife officials.

The station is scheduled to open before the first of the year. Ever since Individual Retirement A ccounts were introduced in the 1970s, t he numbers of tax-advantaged retirem ent savings options and participants have continued to grow. One relativel y new alternative that's gaining popul arity is the Roth 401(k) plan. 401(k)s are retirement savings plans s et up by employers that allow employe es to save for their retirement through a utomatic payroll deductions. As its n ame suggests, the Roth 401(k) comb ines features of a traditional 401(k) w ith those of a Roth IRA. Employers i ncreasingly have begun offering Roth a lternatives, so it's wise to understand h ow they work in case you are given t he option. In a traditional 401(k) plan, employe e contributions are usually made on a pretax basis; that is, deducted from your pay before federal and state income taxes are calculated. This lowers your taxable income and therefore, your taxes. You don't pay taxes on these savings or their investment earnings until they're withdrawn usually after retirement. With a Roth 401(k) you contribute after-tax dollars. Although you don't get an upfront tax break, your account grows tax-free and withdrawals aren't later taxed, provided you've had the account at least five years and are age 59 12 or older or have become disabled or die. Afew things to remember: The combined 2010 annual limit for employee 401(k) contributions whether regular and/or Roth is $16,500 ($22,000 if over 50). Roth 401(k) contributions cannot later be converted moved into a regular 401(k), or vice versa. Before age 59 12, all 401(k) withdrawals, whether Roth or regular, may be subject to a 10 percent early withdrawal penalty on the taxable amount. Exceptions may be made for death or disability, catastrophic medical expenses, first-time homebuyer loans Tips for understanding Roth 401(k) plans Getting tanked Personal Finance Jason Alderman See ROTH, page 11B Special to the News-SunAVON PARK The South Florida Community College Cosmetology clinic will open for public appointments Wednesday, Oct. 27, at the SFCC Highlands Campus.

By SANDYSHORE APBusiness WriterThere was good news and b ad news in energy prices t his week. While drivers paid m ore to fill their tanks than t hey did a year ago, some a nalysts think it shouldn't be l ong before gas is cheaper a gain. Also, the government said m any Americans won't see b ig spikes in their winter h eating bills. The national average for a g allon of regular gasoline w as $2.833 on Friday. That's a bout a nickel more than a w eek ago and up nearly 35 c ents from a year ago, a ccording to AAA, Wright E xpress and the Oil Price I nformation Service. Even though demand for g asoline has fallen since s ummer, a weaker dollar has k ept crude hovering between $ 81 and $83 a barrel this m onth, which is translating i nto higher prices at the p ump. Crude, like most commodit ies, is priced in dollars. A w eaker dollar makes it more a ttractive for buyers who use f oreign currencies. Higher gasoline prices s houldn't last much longer. T here is plenty of oil on h and, while demand continu es to wane and consumers d on't seem willing to spend a ny more than necessary, a ccording to Tom Kloza, c hief oil analyst at the Oil P rice Information Service. T he Energy Information A dministration said this w eek that gasoline consumpt ion in the past four weeks w as 1.12 percent less than it w as a year ago in the midst of t he recession. The Labor Department s aid the Consumer Price I ndex the inflation rate rose 0.1 percent in September, compared with a 0.3 percent increase in August. Gas prices increased 0.7 percent last month. Meanwhile, the government's Short-Term Energy Outlook indicated that most consumers should be able to keep heating bills under control this winter, although heating oil prices will rise. Americans who rely on heating oil are expected to pay about $220, or 12 percent, more this winter. Much of that is due to higher crude prices which have contributed to a 16 percent increase in wholesale heating oil prices from yearago levels. The EIAforecast a 4 percent increase in heating bills for households using natural gas, which translates into about $27 more for the winter. Supplies of natural gas, like oil, remain plentiful. Much of the country relies on natural gas for heating, while heating oil is used mainly in the Northeast. In a research report for clients, Cameron Hanover energy consulting agency said traders see natural gas as the least desirable product in the energy market because of abundant supplies and weak demand in the recovering economy. "The truth is that there is plenty of energy supply out there for the available demand, but oil prices tend to be able to get more from that than natural gas can," the report said. Oil and other energy contracts fell as the dollar grew stronger against the euro and other currencies. Benchmark oil lost $1.08 at $81.61 a barrel in midday trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. In other Nymex trading, heating oil fell 4.04 cents at $2.2435 a gallon, gasoline slipped 2.01 cents to $2.1163 a gallon and natural gas gave up 9.8 cents at $3.559 per 1,000 cubic feet. In London, Brent crude dropped $1.35 a barrel to $82.85 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, October 17, 2010Page 11A COUNTRY CLUB REALTY 863-382-6575www .CountryClubRealtyofSebring.comTWO LOCATIONSTOSERVE YOU GOLF HAMMOCK 1 Hammock Circle € Sebring, FL 33872 COUNTRY CLUB OF SEBRING 4800 Haw Branch Rd. € Sebring, FL 33872863-382-6575LOOK NO FURTHER!

With either type of 401(k), y ou must begin taking m andatory minimum distrib utions from your account a fter you turn 70 12, just as y ou must with a regular I RA. However, you can a void mandatory withd rawals by converting your R oth 401(k) into a Roth I RA, which has no such r equirement. You can also c onvert a pretax 401(k) into a regular IRAand then into a R oth IRA; but you must pay t ax on the converted amount, j ust as you would with any r egular 401(k) withdrawal. Many people wrestle b etween Roth and regular 4 01(k) contributions. Afew c onsiderations: Will your tax rate be highe r now or at retirement? T hose in their peak earning y ears may have a higher marginal tax rate currently than at retirement, whereas those just beginning their careers may see their rates rise over time. Many financial experts think future income tax rates will likely climb due to federal budget deficits and increasing demands on Social Security and Medicare. The longer you remain invested in a Roth 401(k), the more likely you are to benefit from tax-free account growth. Consider where you'll retire, as many states have low or non-existent income tax. When it's not clear which type of 401(k) or IRA is best for their particular situation, some people diversify their retirement savings by contributing to both a Roth and a regular 401(k).

Roth 401 (k) plans have advantages MARTIN CRUTSINGER APEconomics WriterWASHINGTON Americans s pent more money on cars, furniture a nd at hardware stores to boost retail s ales to a third monthly increase in S eptember. The string of gains since July foll owed declines in May and June. T hose had raised worries that the c ountry could be in danger of topp ling back into recession. E conomists caution that while the e conomy is growing, the expansion i s not strong enough to lower face h igh unemployment and offset weak i ncome growth. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben B ernanke said during a speech F riday in Boston that the Fed is prep ared to take further steps to rejuvenate the economy by buying Treasury bonds. But he said Fed policymakers are wrestling with how big the program should be. The Fed is widely expected to announce a Treasury buying program at their next meeting Nov. 2-3. The Fed's bond purchases would be intended to lower long-term interest rates to stimulate buying and spending and help lower unemployment. Bernanke also indicated that policymakers are trying to craft a plan to strengthen the economy and lift inflation from super-low levels. His comments were delivered as the Labor Department reported inflation outside volatile food and energy costs was flat for the second straight month. And in the past 12 months, core prices rose only 0.8 percent, the smallest yearly gain in more than 49 years. The sluggish economy is keeping a lid on prices. Consumers are holding back on spending, with unemployment high and wages stagnant. That makes it difficult for retailers to pass on any price increases. Consumer spending is closely watched because it accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. Retail sales rose 0.6 percent in September, the Commerce Department reported Friday. That followed an even better 0.7 percent August increase, the biggest advance since March. The gains have economists revising their forecasts for economi c growth in the July-September quarter. Paul Dales, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, said he has changed his forecast for consumer spending to between 2.5 percent and 3 percent, up from 2 percent. That would support overall economic growth of around 3 percent in the third quarter much stronger than the 1.7 percent in the second quarter, he said. Excluding autos, sales rose 0.4 percent in September after a 1 percent August gain. Auto sales, which had fallen 0.5 percent in August, rose 1.6 percent in September, the best showing since March. Economists had predicted the September increase in auto sales based on reports from automakers. Those reports showed sales during the month had come in at an annual rate of 11.76 million units, slight ly better than the August pace. Still, it was far below the pre-recession lev el of 16 million sales in 2007 ju st before the recession began. The strength outside of aut os came in big gains at furniture store s. Sale in that category rose 0.5 pe rcent, the best showing since Ju ly. Electronic and appliance stores pos ted a 1.5 percent rise, the best sin ce February. Sales at hardware stor es rose 0.6 percent, the biggest increa se since April. Sales at general merchandi se stores, a broad category that includ es department stores and the nation 's big chains such as Wal-Mart an d Target, showed no increase la st month. But the flat reading follow ed a 0.5 percent jump in August. September retail sales rise 0.6 percent, third straight monthly increase Classified Ads € 385-6155 NEWS-SUN

KATE ROWLAND Special to the News-SunWINTER HAVEN S ebring stuck to its game plan a nd concentrated on slowing d own Winter Haven's running b acks in a crucial District 93 Agame at Denison Stadium o n Friday, but a pair of Blue D evil quarterbacks mixed t hings up just enough with t heir passing game to help W inter Haven roll to a 30-0 v ictory. The Blue Devil offense g ained 186 yards passing and 1 57 yards rushing, while an a ggressive Winter Haven d efense frustrated Sebring quarterback Matt Grubb much of the game. "Winter Haven has a nice stable of backs and they run the b all very well," said Sebring h ead coach Jared Hamlin earl ier this week. "Their defense i s very aggressive and they're b ig on both sides of the ball. "The key to our defense is t o stop their running game. W e've got to be consistent and q uit making mental mistakes." Awin over the Blue Devils ( 6-1 overall, 3-0) would have h elped Sebring's chances to m ake the playoffs after a six y ear drought. The top two t eams from each district move o n to post-season play. Earlier in the week, Hamlin w as reluctant to place too m uch importance on the loss t o Lake Wales and the upcomi ng game against Winter H aven, stating that the Blue S treaks still have plenty of f ootball to play. Even so, two straight losses a ren't good news. With two district losses, i ncluding a loss to leaguel eading Lake Wales (7-0 overa ll, 4-0) last week, Sebring (42 overall, 1-2) will need some h elp to see playoff action this y ear. "Aloss wouldn't technicall y knock us out of the playo ffs, but this is a big game," H amlin said on Wednesday. Every district game is a big game. This game is important, but they all are." Sebring junior receiver Damion Thompson, who saw action on the defensive side of the ball for the first time this season due to a short bench, was the team's second leading rusher against Winter Haven, gaining 20 yards on nine carries. Thompson also contributed a 14-yard pass reception. "Losing this game is a big disappointment," Thompson said. "We were hoping to make it to the playoffs, but we just made a whole bunch of mistakes. "We didn't capitalize on their mistakes. We didn't have time to throw the ball and they were hard to run against." Sebring sustained a drive in the first quarter, highlighted by a nice run from Thompson, but the Blue Streaks were unable to score. Winter Haven took possession of the ball and took advantage of an 86-yard drive when Darmonte Munson scrambled into the end zone for a second quarter touchdown. Devin Clarke gave Sebring fans something to cheer about with a crowd-pleasing 62yard kickoff return to the Blue Devil 25-yard line. Apersonal foul on Winter Haven worked in Sebring's favor, as well. Instead of ending the drive with a 7-7 tie, an errant pass was picked off in the end zone by a Winter Haven defender, deflating the Blue Streaks' spirts. "On offense, we have to sustain our drives," Hamlin said Wednesday. "We made a lot of mistakes against Lake Wales that killed our drives and we can't do that against Winter Haven." The Blue Devils doubled their lead when sophomore quarterback Luke Borders connected with a wide-open receiver Chris McGriff in the end zone for a 23-yard touchdown pass with 6:49 left in the half.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Much like any movie, Thursday's action on the SFCC volleyball court had various subplots mixed in with Breast Cancer Awareness Night bringing out the pink jersey's, Sophomore Night providing pre-game reunions for departing players and their families and the chance to end the home schedule on a high note. And much like the Pink Panther movies, this South Florida squad had stumbled through most of the season like Inspector Clouseau bumbled his way through an investigation. And yet, as Clouseau would wind up successful in accomplishing his task, so too did the Lady Panthers' story have a happy ending after a five-set win over visiting Polk. "It's bittersweet," head coach Kim Crawford said afterward. "I'm glad for them to get this win in their last home match, but it also showed how much more we could have accomplished this year." The match started off like many others this year, with South Florida hanging tough in the early going, only to see the Lady Vikings gradually pull away and build a 22-13 lead. But the potential Crawford had seen in her team seemed to start to materialize as Panther pride kicked in and a comeback was mounted. Acombo block from Kayla Bailey and Leah Mitchell was followed by a Mitchell kill and block before a Kalee Schlabach ace and Bailey kill suddenly had South Florida within 23-20. That would be the end of the run in that game, a 25-20 Polk win, but the battle had been joined. Back and forth set two went, with the Panthers hanging tough early, and continuing to stay within reach. ASchlabach knotted it la te at 19-19 before a Vikin g score put them up one. But a four-point run mov ed South Florida to within tw o of a win and a Mol ly Blackman kill had them o n the brink. Polk, however, battl ed back, sending it into extr as before eking out a 28-26 w in for a 2-0 match lead. Whereas this might ha ve been a sign through most of the season to pack it in an d go quietly into that goo d night, the Panthers of th is night were about to ma ke some noise. Seemingly vengeful aft er their missed opportunit y, South Florida roared out of the gate in the third set, wi th three Mitchell kills stakin g them to a 5-1 lead. Schlabach had a kill with in a run, as did Mitchell in a later run, and the le ad swelled to 21-9. The Vikings inched bac k, but the Panthers weren't le tting this lead get away as Revenge of the Pink Panthers See PANTHERS, p a g e 5B 0-fer Football Friday News-Sun photo by BETH BALDRIDG E Jarvielle Hart gets around the edge on this play Friday night, although Fort Meade proved too much for the Devils in Friday's 37-0 loss to the Miners. By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK Fort Meade kept their undefeated season rolling after they over ran the now 3-4 Avon Park Red Devils 37-0 Friday night at Joe Franza Stadium in a non-district match up. It was no frills, heads-up football for the Miners, who were able to run at will against the Devils, showing that they certainly deserve the number-one ranking in Class 1Apolls. "They are tough," said Avon Park's Head Coach Andy Bonjokian. "We did not play bad football, they are just better. Our guys are improving every week. We were able to move the ball well in the second half, and we have to work on our misreads and blocking assignments. It's back to work on Monday." "We are still 2-0 in the district, which keeps us in the running," he added. The running prowess of Foprt Meade's De'vante Clark, Dwayne McCalebb and Ronald Jones stressed the usually strong Avon Park defense to its limits, seeming to run at will over the Devils. Clark picked up 120 yards and one touchdown, rushing three times in the third, each for 19 yards and over, while McCalebb rushed for 82 yards and two touchdowns. Clark also picked off two of Red Devil Ryan Dick's three interceptions. Jones went 5-for-10 for 49 yards passing and picked up a touchdown when he connected deep in the zone with tight end Brandon Fulse late in the third. Avon Park rushed for a total of 108, putting up a good showing late with a 72 yard grind in 12 play s, but just could not conve rt enough for six. "They play heads u p football, that's for sure. I think our guys will pu ll together," Bonjokian sai d. "We need to get out of t he funk we were in tonig ht and get back on track. "You just can't ju st throw three interceptio ns deep in our territory an d not expect a team like Fo rt Meade not to score," he continued. "We have be en working on our speci al teams, and the one time w e kick it deep inside the 1 0, they ran it back." The Devils, still 2-0 an d tied for the District 5-2 B lead, will have time to co ntinue their work as th ey move into their bye we ek to get ready for a b ig match-up at district c 0leading Lake Highlan ds Prep Friday, Oct. 29.

y ear's 13-0 win over Sebring a t Firemen's Field. The two b rothers are sons of former M ajor League Baseball c atcher Pat Borders. Winter Haven ended the h alf up 21-0 after Blue Devil r eceiver Donald Celiscar got b ehind the Sebring defense a nd picked up a 31-yard t ouchdown pass from B orders with at the end of the h alf. "I guess last week's loss a ffected us a little bit," T hompson said. "We were k ind of already down and we c ame into this game still b ringing last week with us. W e didn't practice like we were supposed to this week." Sebring continued to be plagued by the Blue Devils' passing game in the third quarter when Winter Haven's coaching staff put quarterback Mike Easton in to give his offensive attack a different look. With the Blue Streaks'attention still riveted on the running backs, Winter Haven receiver Donald Celiscar was left wide open. Easton had no trouble finding Celiscar with a pass, and Sebring's defense gave Celiscar no trouble as he ran the ball nearly the length of the field for a 78-yard touchdown reception. "We loaded up the box to stop their run and they threw it," Hamlin said. "They didn't do anything different. We just missed them. It was a sloppy game. I don't have much to say right now." Sebring quarterback Matt Grubb was sacked in the end zone as the game wound down to account for the final 30-0 score. Clarke led the Blue Streaks with 36 yards on three carries, and two receptions for nine yards. Evan Lewis had one reception for 20 yards. Trini Sutton and Jacob Bryan each gained 15 yards on three carries, Lake Wales and Winter Haven face off next Friday, Oct. 22, at Lake Wales. Sebring will be on the road again at Celebration. The Storm (1-3 district) defeated Lake Nona 28-21 on Friday. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThough their sixth straight r egular season district title e luded them, the Lady D ragons finished out their d istrict schedule in strong f ashion Thursday, taking a 31 win at Frostproof. "I was real impressed with F rostproof and the way they p layed. They fought hard did n ot make this an easy win for u s," head coach Linette W ells said. "But our girls p layed great. I moved them a round a lot and everybody h ad a chance to play." After winning the first set s omewhat comfortably, 251 9, Lake Placid got pushed b efore claiming a 25-23 seco nd-set win. The Lady Bulldogs then t urned it around with a 25-22 w in in the third set before the D ragons finished things up w ith a 25-19 clincher. Laine Weber-Callahan a gain did a good job of filling t he shoes for injured Brittany C ollison at Libero, getting 21 d igs on the night. Offensively, Alana N eilander set the pace with n ine kills, with Marissa B aldwin and Alysha Curtis e ach adding seven. Kylie Weber set up the o ffense with 19 assists with R honi Gavagni adding 11 of h er own. The win gives Lake Placid a 9-3 (11-4 overall) district r ecord and sole possession of t he second seed for the district tournament to be played the week of Oct. 25 at Tenoroc. The Dragons finish up the regular season with a match at home against Sebring Monday and a visit to LaBelle Tuesday. In Sebring, the Lady Blue Streaks finished up their district slate with a win over Ridge Thursday in a tooclose-for-comfort, five-set match. "The last time we played them, we were missing people and still swept them," head coach Venessa Sinness said. "This was way too close and we're just not coming together. I'm not sure what's going on." Awin is a win, and it puts Sebring right in the middle of the district standings at 6-6, (10-6 overall) with wins over each team below them and losses to each team above them. "Physically, we can run with any of those top teams," Sinness said. "But mentally, we have a hard time with them. We've got to turn this around or we're in for some trouble next week against Lake Placid and Avon Park, not to mention the following week at Districts." The Lady Red Devils will certainly be looking to bounce back after finishing their district schedule with a three-game loss to McKeel to settle for third place in the standings with a 7-5 record (8-6 overall). "We played with them for a while, but at the end of the second and third games, we lost our composure a little," head coach Stephanie Devlin said. "We're better than what we showed, but with Districts coming up, it's the start of a whole new season." The regular season finishes up with a Monday meeting at Hardee and Thursday's wrap-up against Sebring at home.

Another Flint kill and a c ombo block from Bailey and D esirae Burris then pushed t he Panthers to a 17-15 lead. Schlabach, Bailey and M itchell then added kills for a 20-17 lead. It soon shrunk to 20-19, b ut Mitchell powered one o ver and Desiree Leedy and F lint teamed up for a block to e dge it back to 22-19. But in an ominous flashback to set two, the Vikings reeled off four straight to take a 23-22 lead. It was the Panthers, this time, that would rebound, scoring the last two for a 2523 win to set up the tiebreaker. Maintaining the momentum, South Florida jumped out of the gate fast, with Bailey scoring twice to build a 10-3 lead in the first-to-15 rubber match. After a Polk time out, the Vikings scored four straight to cut it to 10-7, but Mitchell added two more kills and Flint smashed another as the Panthers took the win, going away, 15-8. "It ends it on a good note for us," former Blue Streak Ricki Albritton said. "To get our first win in conference and especially against Polk. They are, to us, what Avon Park is to Sebring, so that adds a little to it." The big win also saw some big numbers put up for South Florida, with Mitchell cranking out 19 kills, Flint 15 and Schlabach 14. Bailey had five blocks, Burris 35 assists and Avon Park's Melissa Tullo totaled a whopping 42 digs. Abittersweet close to the home season indeed, with just a match at Lake Sumter Monday left before the year comes to an end, but some positive signs for the future. On a night celebrating the sophomores, it was the freshmen Mitchell, Flint and Burris who all came up big which, much like a movie, leaves things wide open for a sequel. Continued from 1B Panthers end on a high note News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Kayla Bailey, #3, lead SFCC with five blocks while Leah Mitchell, #9, powered 19 kills in T hursday's win over Polk.

Page 8BNews-SunSunday, October 17, 2010www.newssun.com SAMPLE Dear Registered Voter, This is a sample of the Optical Scan Paper Ballot that will be used for the November 2, 2010 General Election. When you vote an Optical Scan Paper Ballot, you are actually “lling in (darkening) an oval on a paper ballot. The Golden Rule when voting an Optical Scan Paper Ballot is: COMPLETELY FILL IN THE OVALŽ. Please remember this Golden Rule and follow it exactly. You will be furnished a marking device at the precinct. Mark this ballot and take it with you to use as a guide when you go to vote. This will save you a lot of time in the polling room. We will also have a Touch Screen Voting System at each precinct which may be used by the disabled voters only. Workers will be available to instruct you on the use of either system. EARLY VOTING: Early Voting will be conducted between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. every day except Sunday, beginning on Monday, October 18th and ending on Saturday, October 30th, at the following Highlands County locations. Highlands County Government Center, 600 South Commerce Ave., Sebring. Avon Park City Hall Council Chambers, 123 East Pine St., Avon Park. Lake Placid Town Hall Council Chambers, 311 West Interlake Blvd., Lake Placid. Early Voting will not be conducted on Monday, November 1st, the day before the election. This is your chance to get it done early and avoid possible lines at the polling places, especially at the larger precincts such as precincts 4, 5, 13, 15, 16, 17, 19 & 25. NOTE: It doesnt matter where you live, you may go to any of the three early voting sites and cast your vote there. VOTING ON ELECTION DAY: If you are voting at the polling place on Election Day, you must vote in the precinct in which you live. Polling places will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. ID REQUIRED: YOU MUST PRODUCE PICTURE AND SIGNATURE IDENTIFICATION before you will be allowed to vote. If you cannot produce picture and signature identi“cation, you will be required by law, to vote a provisional ballot. A Florida Drivers License is the most commonly used form of ID, however the following forms of Picture ID have been approved by the State: Florida Drivers License Student ID Florida Identi“cation Card Retirement Center ID United States Passport Neighborhood Association ID Debit or Credit Card Public Assistance ID Military ID ABSENTEE BALLOT VOTING: You may request an absentee ballot in person, in writing or by phone at 863-402-6655. Absentee ballots will not be mailed after October 27th (Wednesday before the election), however, beginning October 28th (Thursday before the election), you may have someone pick up your ballot for you. The designated person must have a signed note from the voter speci“cally naming who is to pick up their ballot. A person may only pick up two (2) ballots per election for someone other than themselves or their immediate family. WHAT YOU WILL BE ALLOWED TO VOTE ON: You will be allowed to vote on every race and issue on this ballot, unless it is specially marked, such as State Representative District 66, the City of Avon Park Mayor and City Council race, the Town of Lake Placid Referendum, the Spring Lake Improvement District Referendum and the Sun N Lake of Sebring Improvement District Election. Only voters living in precincts 4, 4A, 4D, 16 and 16A will be allowed to vote in the State Representative District 66 race. Only those voters living inside the City Limits of Avon Park (which includes precincts 1, 2, 4A and 16A) will be allowed to vote on the Avon Park referendum. Voters living inside the Lake Placid Town Limits (Precincts 13L, 17L, and 19L) will be allowed to vote on the Lake Placid Referendum and registered voters living inside the Spring Lake Improvement District (precinct 20), which does not include Village I, will be allowed to vote on the Spring Lake Referendum. The Sun N Lake of Sebring Improvement District Board of Supervisors Election is a separate election comprised of voters from precincts 4D and 25D, however a person must be a registered voter living inside the district and must also be a freeholder (person who has title or bene“cial title in equity to real property) or the spouse of a freeholder of property located inside the district, which is not wholly exempt from taxation and you must sign an Af“davit of Ownership before you will be issued a ballot for this election. Special Note: Residents in the Tanglewood Subdivision will not be allowed to vote in this election, because you are not free holders as outlined above. Do not worry, when you go to vote, you will be issued the correct ballot for your particular precinct. POLLING LOCATIONS: Be sure to check your voter card to see which precinct you live in. Then compare the number of the precinct on the card to the Precinct List on this sample ballot to be sure that you report to the correct voting location to vote. If you do not have your card or if you have any questions, please call the Elections Of“ce for assistance. VOTER REGISTRATION, ADDRESS CHANGES AND SIGNATURE UPDATES: To vote in Highlands County in this General Election, you must have been a quali“ed registered voter in Florida by October 4, 2010. If you were already registered in Florida prior to October 4, 2010 and you moved to Highlands County from another Florida County, or you moved within Highlands County from one address to another, you will be allowed to change your address and vote. If you have moved to Highlands County from another State and did not register in Highlands County by October 4, 2010, you will not be allowed to vote in this election in Highlands County. If your signature has changed since you registered to vote, you may need to provide a signature update to the Elections Of“ce. Signatures on petitions and absentee ballots are always checked against the original voter registration signature, and it is the responsibility of the voter to be sure the signature is updated when it changes. If you need to update your signature, simply call our of“ce at 863-402-6655 and we will send you a form for an update, or you may come into our of“ce at 580 South Commerce Avenue, Room A201 in Sebring and we will be glad to help you. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------If you have any questions, please call the Elections Of“ce at (863) 402-6655, email us at soe@hcbcc.org or visit our website at www.votehighlands.com.

Do n Seymour, Senior Pastor. Phon e 452-0088.PLACESTOWORSHIP The Natural R esource C onservation S ervice Sebring F ield Office has b een the recipient o f a helping hand. J ennifer Abbey, form er soil conservat ionist, recently left b ecause she was p romoted to District C onservationist for P lant City. That left a lot of work and a s hortage of people to do it. That's where Jorge G uevara, soil conservationi st, comes in. He was sent to t his office to obtain training a nd to assist with the work l oad. Unfortunately, he only g ets to stay a couple short w eeks before he leaves for h is permanent position in the L abelle office. He was hired b y NRCS about three weeks a go and we at the Sebring o ffice will be sad to see him l eave. Jorge has led an interesti ng life so far. He was born i n Venezuela, but raised in N ew Smyrna Beach. His f ather had a dairy farm in V enezuela and his mom was f rom the states. They had r elatives in New Smyrna and J orge's family moved there w hen he was 5 years old. Having parents that were involved in agriculture, Jorge joined the Future Farmers of America while he was growing up and served as state officer for the organization when he graduated. Being raised in New Smyrna, Jorge learned quickly to love the ocean and anything to do with the water. "I am a water boy," he said. "I was brought up around the beach so I surfed, fished, and swam every chance there was." Jorge's FFAbackground got him involved in animal science. He attended the University of Florida and was working full time paying his way through college. But working, studies, attending classes and homework finally caught up with him. "I needed a break so I applied for a job out of the blue in Hawaii," he said. He landed what many would consider a dream job and began training dolphins for a living. He began his new position with Dolphin Quest, a dolphin interaction attraction. "We had nine dolphins and we trained them with positive reinforcement. They would do what we called behaviors such as flips and they would learn to interact with visitors. I worked with hotel guests and a lot of kids. I loved it and became attached to a dolphin called Hokee, which means Star in Hawaiian." Jorge smiled as he said, "He wasn't the brightest dolphin, but he was really sweet. It took longer to train him the same behaviors that the other dolphins picked up right away." After one year in Hawaii, Jorge decided that break was over. It was time to get back to reality and finish school. After returning to Gainesville he was offered a forestry job as a researcher for wetlands, specifically cypress domes. He also worked at the sawmill. He held this position for about two years. During summer break, he married Amy, his high school sweetheart. After the nuptials and the break, Jorge returned to school and was offered an assistantship to get his masters degree. He received a stipend which paid for all of his classes providing he did research for the university. The Soil and Water Science department assigned him subaqueous or underwater soils and sea grass research. Even though he was based in Gainesville, this research took him to Key Largo and Fort Pierce. "I dove 6to 10-foot depths and took soil samples, did vegetation transects and sea grass cover," he said. Jorge got involved with NRCS through the University and St. Johns Water Management District. "I worked with many NRCS folks in both places and with my background in soil science; I decided to apply for the Soil Conservationist job when it came up," he said. Sebring is just a temporary stop for Jorge. He is being trained by Carlos Torres, District Conservationist for the Sebring Field Office. Once the temporary training is over, he's off to Labelle. Once he's there he'll be vis iting local ranchers and advising them on conservation practices and the farm bill programs that are avail able. Until Jorge is relocated t o his new position, his wife Amy is living in Gainesvill e. She and their four-month-o ld son, Hobie Joseph, will reunite with Jorge once the move is complete. Amy teaches agricultural science for middle school. Jorge is excited to be with his wife and baby again. For now he is making that long drive home every weekend to see them. Although it hasn't been long since Jorge joined our team, we will most certainl y miss him. He has been a tremendous help to all the staff and a pleasure to work with. We wish you the best in your future endeavors Jorge. The Labelle office is fortunate indeed to be receiving such a great guy!

He will be leaving soon to join the Labelle staff in his permanent position.

West hand-delivered simple Operation Christmas Child shoe box gifts to children living Bogota, Colombia. While traveling through the city's slums, he was overwhelmed by the stench of trash-filled streets where these children live. "This is their reality these smells, the trash everywhere. This is their life. And in a few days when I return to my lush, privileged, bettersmelling reality, these children will still be here. I'm hoping our visit can add a little love to their reality," he said. West will encourage his fans to join him in an effort to reach the world's neediest children through Operation Christmas Child. Concert attendees will receive empty shoe boxes they can fill with small gift items a child would enjoy. Visit http:// matthewwest.com/tour/ for ticket information.

"I can't t ell you how many fake tatt oos we've already sold." The characters in "Alice in W onderland" are another big t rend, according to the NRF s urvey, and several retailers s pecifically cite the Mad H atter as one of the top cost umes for adults. Retailers report big sales in s caly blue Avatar costumes a nd Mario Brothers, along w ith "classic" and more T wilight-modern vampires. "Clearly pop culture is d riving what we're seeing," s aid Dan Haight, chief opera ting officer of BuySeasons I nc., which owns one of the b iggest online costume sites, B uyCostumes.com. Vampires had a resurgence t his year and Alice in W onderland,'in particular T im Burton's Mad Hatter, is h uge." Humor and lighthearted l ooks are back in a big way as w ell, led by giant yellow b ananas and wooly sock m onkeys. "Right now humor is a lmost half of our total s ales," said Mary Ginnaty of S avers, a secondhand chain o f stores across the United S tates. "The campier the bett er. ... The mullet is still our b est-selling wig."Top costumes for childrenThe princess has held her r eign over popular girls cost umes for the last six years, a nd she's not budging. In fact, while princess is N o. 1, "Disney princess" is N o. 5 with its variety of tiaras porting royalty: Tinkerbell, S now White, Belle, Tiana a nd, Disney predicts, R apunzel from Disney's f orthcoming animated feat ure, "Tangled." Other popular options for girls include Jessie from Toy Story, witches, gypsies and mermaids. Superheros are still a strong choice for boys, including Spiderman, but so are pirates, the Mario Brothers and Toy Story, specifically Buzz Lightyear. He made his way into the top picks for the first time this year. "Buzz, Woody and Jessie are big for us this year, and even the toddler costume of Rex," said Molly Adams, vice president and general manager of Disney Store North America. Ladybugs and bumblebees are other tops for toddlers. Retailers said not much has changed in the kids category, although some are seeing a rise in retro, 80s costumes and even goth costumes for kids. "One difference for boys," said Ginnaty of Savers, "is that while heroes like Wolverine and Spiderman are still strong for boys, we're also selling the personal heroes: the combat soldier, the firefighter and the policeman."More trendsFor the family that Halloweens together: A ghostly group. Avoodoo trio. Apirate brigade. This year, many families are dressing together as a unit. Chasing Fireflies, a Seattle-based company, has been selling more options for families, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives, and mothers and daughters. "We have vampires as a brother and sister duo, a Greek goddess and gladiator, looks that are expanded to add in Mom and Dad," said Lori Liddle, co-founder of the company. Chasing Fireflies has also added plus-size costumes and expanded their sizes for growing kids. "We've sold out of every (children's size) 14 in the house," Liddle said. "I think the market has been pushing kids to be way too old too quickly and parents are pushing them to retain their childhood. It's nice to let them be young and celebrate the childhood part of their life." Newsmakers: Angry stewards & oil spillers. In an homage to Steven Slater, the I'm-Not-Gonna-Take-ThisAnymore Jet Blue flight attendant, several retailers are selling their own versions of the disgruntled airline employee or the angry steward. "It's a blue steward shirt with a light blue tie and it comes with a Band-Aid for your forehead," said Kenig of Ricky's NYC. The BuyCostumes.com version includes a plastic beer stein. Iparty has a series of celebrities-gone-bad looks that include a Tiger Woods visor with a golf club stuck through it. BuyCostumes.com features imitations of Betty White, Flo the insurance lady from Progressive.com and a "Bad Planning BPJumpsuit," a green costume that looks like it's stained with black oil. "That will be the controversial costume of the year," predicts Haight.Anything can be sexyAccording to the NRF, the "sexy adult costumes" are doing better than ever and boast a wider variety. There are sexy referees, sexy mischievous Mad Hatters, sexy pirates and a "Miss Krueger," which is a sexy version of the Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddie Krueger. BuyCostumes.com has the unquestionably most bizarre look in their Sexy Cookie Monster and Sexy Big Bird costumes for women. "It's a different cookie monster: it's flirty and sassy and a lot more fun," Haight said.Animal costumesDog as Pumpkin: Fluffy and Fido can get into the Halloween spirit. Just about any costume you could dream up for a human is available for your pet. The NRF tracked the top pet costumes. They include pumpkin, devil and witch. Even costumes for pets a re getting racier, with retaile rs offering "sexy schoolgirl ," 'playboy bunny" and "Dar th Vader" for dogs.Do-it yourselfIn a downturn econom y, many consumers wou ld rather get creative and pie ce together their own costume s. That's also a way of makin g your costume more unique. All of the retailers w e spoke to said their acce ssories business is hotter th an ever, with wigs, wands an d Michael Jackson gloves fl ying off the shelves. "The consumer is embe llishing last year's costum es or they're finding somethin g in their closet and makin g that work," said Ginnaty of Savers. "They might buy a Snookie wig, but wear an animal print dress th ey already have in their closet ." And since Halloween is o n a Sunday this year, many w ill be going to multiple parti es over the weekend, so they 'll need more than one look. "Friday they might be Iro n Man," Ginnaty said, "an d Saturday they might put a chef hat on top of a regul ar outfit to mix it up."

DearAbby: I'm a 25-year-old woman who is involved in a serious relationship with a wonderful man. We've been together for about three months and we're very much in love. My problem: I think I'm obsessed with him. I am happy only when we spend time together. When we're not, I feel sad and alone. I spend my time following his activities on social networking sites and constantly checking my cell phone, hoping he sends me a message. This is my first serious relationship. I know he loves me as much as I love him because he has mentioned marriage and having kids together someday. Is what I am experiencing normal? Lovestruck in New York DearLovestruck: It's not unusual for a first relationship, but you're right to be concerned. Take a step back and look at what you're doing. We cannot depend on someone else to make us happy or make us whole. When a woman spends all her time tracking what her boyfriend is doing when he's not with her and waiting for the phone to ring, it makes her a less-interesting person to be around than she could be. And that kind of dependency can drive a man away. It is important that you create a balance between what's going on in the relationship and continuing to develop yourself as an individual. Your boyfriend seems to have no problem doing this. DearAbby: I have a hard time empathizing with people who are sick. My mother suffered from all sorts of medical issues and it affected me greatly. My husband, "Glen," and I are in our 50s. He's nearing 60, and as we age I expect our health will decline. Glen already takes medications for several conditions. I, on the other hand, have always enjoyed excellent health. I find myself becoming impatient when Glen is sick. It's not that I think he's faking; I just think he needs to "get over it" and not let it affect him. I hide my feelings pretty well. I take care of him, make chicken soup, let him rest, pick up h is medicine or whate ver. But I'm afraid i f he were to become seriously ill that I wouldn't take good care of him. I love him dearly, but I don't seem to be able to wo rk up sympathy when he (or anyone) is sick. I'm afraid to tell this to Glen because I'm afraid he' ll keep his conditions from me and think I don't want to be there for him. How can I increase my "caring gene"? I have had therapy for other issues. What can I do? Nursing a Flaw in Tex as DearNursing: Lack of empathy is the inability to relate to the feelings of others. Some individuals have such an overabundance of empathy that they become l iterally paralyzed by the pain of another person. Be glad you aren't one of those. When a spouse becomes sick and dependent, it can b e a challenge. You can minimize or ignore it, or you can choose to be solicitous and helpful. Tolerating the complaints that go along with being ill isn't always easy, but if you visualize how you would want to be treated if the situation were reversed, it might help you be less impa tient. I'm sorry you weren't more forthcoming about the issues that sent you into the rapy. If you really feel you might be emotionally absen t when the chips are down, contact your therapist and start working on it NOW.

I know from the experiences of others t hat this compounds one's financial p roblems as charges are added to cover t he cost. Financial exhaustion grips b ody, mind and emotions. The choices we make affect our lives p ositively or negatively. When we c hoose to live beyond our means, we c reate an enslaving debt lifestyle. The better choice is to live within our m eans and actually below what we b ring in so that we can develop savi ngs to help us over those inevitable r ough spots. Such positive choices give u s freedom and peace of mind. In these extraordinary economic t imes, many have found out that their l ifestyles have brought them to the place o f being beyond their ability to pay. C onsequently, many have walked away f rom their homes and other possessions. This is extremely serious. But, a more serious indebtedness must be faced. Personally, it took me some time to realize that this indebtedness encompassed me. I had been raised in a Christian home and had come to faith in Jesus Christ at the age of 10 years old. But, by my late teens and early 20s, I had lost sight of the fact that I was indeed a sinner saved by God's grace. Though I didn't realize it at the time, the enemy of my soul had sufficiently confused me and I allowed self-righteousness to slip in alongside my salvation daring to usurp it. I recall believing and accepting what the Bible said about sin, but allowing my vanity to blind me from seeing my personal sinfulness. Imagine! Satan used my most prized possession my faith and twisted it for his ends. I had not lost my salvation, which the Holy Spirit guarantees; but, I grieved the Spirit of God and suffered consequences that wrong thinking inevitably leads to. However, God held me by his grace till I could see the error of my thinking and confess it to him. As it says in 1 John 1:9, NKJV, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." There is help for those caught in financial indebtedness by following the Bible's financial principles. But more vital than that is the solution God gave for our sin indebtedness. The Lord Jesus paid a debt I could never pay my sin debt. That is how much he loves every one of us. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent and an award-winnin g writer. Jesus paid debt beyond my ability to pay Pause And Consider Jan Merop The National Association f or the Education of Young C hildren and I don't see eyet o-eye on many things m aybe anything. We don't e ven agree on a definition of child." For example, they b elieve children are capable o f being reasoned with. I b elieve that if a person is c apable of being reasoned w ith, he or she is no longer a c hild. NAEYC certifies pres chool education programs, a nd their standards, as one w ould expect, reflect their p hilosophy. They will not g ive a program their seal of a pproval if it punishes child ren who do bad things. W hy? Because children do n ot do bad things. According t o one of NAEYC's publicat ions, they simply "make m istakes in their behavior." In other words, when a c hild does the wrong thing, it i s not intentional. Really? I w as a child once. When c aught, I was rather clever w hen it came to appearing t hat"I didn't mean it." Adults w ho believed me did me no f avors. ANorth Carolina pres chool teacher recently told me their director informed her and her colleagues that time-out is being phased from the classroom because it is a form of "shaming." Instead, they are to redirect the misguided child to a more positive activity. Aweek after being so informed, said teacher reprimanded a toddler who was beating on another child. No punishment, just a reprimand. The director scolded her for being too negative. I feel certain the director did not appreciate the irony. Another teacher in the program came up with the idea that children who followed classroom rules would get a prize at the end of the day. A child became upset that she didn't get the prize. The director told the teacher to apologize to the child for singling her out and to give her the prize. This child has thus been moved one step further toward incurable narcissism. This is the stuff of trying to become certified by NAEYC. One of NAEYC's papers says that "punishments such as time-outs confuse young children because they cannot easily understand the sequence of behaviors during and after a conflict nor what removal to a chair has to do with them." That sentence confuses me, so I'm fairly certain it's an example of pure, distilled psychobabble. The same paper goes on to assert that timeouts cause children to feel ineffectual, prevent them from developing alternative strategies, lower their selfworth, and are bewildering because young children have difficulty figuring out causeeffect relationships. Psychobabble is any assertion that cannot be verified by the scientific method. All of the preceding fits that definition. Concerning shame, it is dysfunctional when it is either excessive or absent. But when a child misbehaves, he should feel ashamed. Young children are incapable of feeling shame on their own; therefore, they need responsible agents (i.e. adults) to help them feel it. This process is essential to proper socialization; to an appreciation of the effect one's behavior has on others. Concerning children, I know that back in the parenting dark ages, when children knew they were going to be punished for misbehaving, they were far more likely to behave. That is why a teacher in the 1950s had no problem teaching 50 or more firstgraders without an aide (of the 1950s first grade class sizes I've come across, 95 is the record so far, and the woman who taught that leviathan remembered no significant discipline problems). Today's teachers are dealing with classroom behavior problems that would have astounded our great-grandparents. NAEYC ought to be ashamed for contributing to this problem ... but they won't be. They don't believe in shame. Family psychologist John Rosemond answers parents' questions on his Web site at www.rosemond.com.

"I was going to be a runaway bride, but when I saw t his costume, I had to grab it, said the 19-year-old. My friends know me as the Harry Potter nerd. I have a Harry Potter tattoo!" Potter's hot for Halloween this y ear, including prominent b illing on kid costume lists for t he first time ever, according t o a survey conducted by B IGresearch for the National R etail Federation. But he's g oing to have some pop culture c ompetition as retailers stock a w ider variety. Think Snooki versus Gaga, B uzz Lightyear versus Spiderman. The NRF said more people plan t o dress up for the holiday than ever b efore 40.1 percent compared w ith 33.4 percent last year and the highe st percentage since the group started tracking H alloween trends in 2003. "We expect 2010 to be the year of the costume," s aid NRF spokeswoman Kathy Grannis, who cites t he poor economy as a possible reason people are i nvesting in some fun. "It's relatively affordable, purely discretionary s pending and a great way to kick back and forget a bout what lies around the corner," she said. "We saw a rise like this in 2008 as well as in 2002 after 9-11." This season's Halloween costume trends also i nclude rises in classics, humor and lighthearted g ear:Top adult costumesAccording to the NRF survey, "witches" are still t he No. 1 costume for adults, followed by vampires, p irates and nurses. "Nurses and political costumes completely fell off the list last year," Grannis said. "It was right when health care was in the news every day and we had already been through an election year. Both categories are back on this year." While classic costumes still top the list, Grannis cited a rising influence of pop culture. Leading the pack is a certain blonde chameleon who's tailormade for the holiday. "In our online business it's Lady Gaga hands down," said Todd Kenig, chairman of Ricky's NYC. "The wigs, her outfits, the accessories, it's all Gaga." Ricky's NYC sells no less than seven different full Lady Gaga costumes and dozens of her accessories, including a hair-shaped bow and soda-can wig. Expect MTV's Jersey Shore characters Snookie, Pauly D and The Situation to be a hot ticket for men and women. Snooki wannabes will sport orange "tan" makeup, a skintight leopard dress and the quintessential "pouf" wig, while men can become DJ Pauly D with a spiky wig, or "The Situation" with a muscle tank and fake set of ripped abs underneath.

At issue is the referendum on the Nov. 2 ballot, now less than two weeks away, calling for a change to the town charter creating the position of a town manager. Ray Royce and Steve Bastardi, members of the council, are in favor of a town manager. Debra Worley, another council member, and most of the audience were not. Cheryl Davis, the remaining council member, did not express an opinion. One the one hand, Royce and Bastardi argue that it is time for the town to have someone responsible for the overall day-to-day operations. They say that with an annual budget of $4 million the town needs a person who has an overview of all departments. Both men pointed to repeated problems dealings with the county, errors found in annual audits they said a manager would prevent.

Providing middle ground By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Middle schools in Highlands County have a growing program dedicated to providing students with academic enrichment activities along with a traditional scholastic learning environment. Betsy Veith is district coordinator of the 21st Century Community Learning Center program, also known as Afterschool Alliance. The second year program was created after Veith spent 15 years as an instructor and administrator in the Highlands County School District. "We put together a program at each one of the middle school and also a site at the Boys and Girls Club in Sebring which serves kindergarten through fifth-grade students from Fred Wild and Woodlawn," explained Veith.

See MANAGER, page 7A See PROGRAM, page 6A By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK Avon Park is going green and is looking to start a curbside recycling program within the next six months, according to Public Works Director Julian Deleon. "Last week, we ordered individual recycling baskets to separate all paper waste generated at Public Works, City Hall, the Police Department, and the Fire Department," Deleon said in a press release on Monday. "Over 50 percent of all waste collected are paper products, so we want this to be a starting point to implement a recycling program within our municipal service area," he added. "If we implemented curbside recycling and received a participation rate of 30 percent by weight. "This could remove about 2010 tons of material from being landfilled. The disposal cost to process recyclables is half the cost of land filling. This would save about $45,000 annually. "This is the right thing to do for the environment, but further, by removing paper weight from the waste streaming, this will save the city money on our sanitation tipping fees budget." According to Deleon, about $1,200 would be spent on the bins for just the city offices, but from that investment, the city could save close to $200 per month. One of the biggest obstacles to recycling participation on a citywide basis, Deleon said, is sorting, but under his proposal, residents will be able to dump their recyclable products into one bin. "We are also working on a technical specification to advertise for bid for single stream recycling for all city customers. "This means customers can dispose of all paper products, bottles, cans, newspaper all in one recycling bin. There would not be a need for separation," Deleon said. "In the long run, the savings will be substantial." If the city-wide proje ct gets approval, Deleon es timates that the city could sa ve $15 per ton on the 6,700 to ns it picks up. The proposal still has to get council approval, and be advertised for bid for 30 da ys before a decision is made o n a contract, but Deleon 's ambition is to have 75 pe rcent participation by 2020. "We could pass a lot of savings along to the residen ts in the long run if we get pa rticipation," Deleon said.

But Macbeth objected to stoppin g the litigation without changing t he ordinance first. "If you end litigation now as it no w stands, you cannot enforce sectio n 5.6.105 in agricultural areas of t he county," Macbeth said.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Incoming House Speaker Dean Canon has demanded information from state agencies on work they've begun to implement President Barack Obama's federal health care overhaul. In a letter Tuesday to Gov. Charlie Crist, Cabinet members and state agencies, the Winter Park Republican wrote that the GOP-controlled Legislature must take a more proactive role in that task due to a "lack of state executive leadership." That comment was an apparent dig at Crist and the three Cabinet members who together oversee the Office of Insurance Regulation. Crist is a former Republican now running for the U.S. Senate as an independent, and the Cabinet includes Democratic Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, now running for governor.

According to a press release by Lt. James Fansler of the Lake Placid Police Department, Steven Ray Massey was arrested after being identified as a man who rushed a 9-year-old Lake Placid girl Friday, hit her, and knocked her down. The little girl was getting off the school bus and walking home when she stated that Massey ran at her, yelling and screaming. She attempted to run towards her house and Massey chased her, hit her and knocked her to the ground, according to Fansler's release. The victim stated that s he was not sure if Massey h it her again once she w as down because she felt li ke the wind had been knock ed out of her and she may ha ve blacked out, t he release stated. The girl stated to police that on ce Massey h ad knocked her dow n, he ran way. The Highlan ds County Sheriff's K 9 unit was brought an d attempted to track the su spect without success. LPPD's Sgt. Ma rk Schneider showed the girl a lineup of six different pi ctures, which includ ed Massey, and she identifi ed him as the man who hit h er and ran away. No further report w as available about the status of the victim.

Correction By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Aspecial ceremony will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Veteran's Beach Saturday. The event is part remembrance and part celebration an opportunity to recognize our veterans wounded in times of war. Fred Arbelo and the local Military Order of the Purple Heart have worked for the last three and a half years to name U.S. 27 the "Purple Heart Highway." Arbelo made clear it would never have happened without the support of State Representative Denise Grimsley and the Department of Transportation. Arbelo was surprised to find U.S. 27 passes through 20 counties on its way from Miami to the Georgia border. He was also surprised at how quickly most counties responded with enthusiasm. Saturday's ceremony is to celebrate the renaming of U.S. 27 while remembering the men and women whose sacrifice the Purple Heart Highway honors. Grimsley and County Commission Chairman Don Bates will speak at the event, as will Jim Holland, the state commander of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. There will be a 21-gun salute. The VFW4300 Honor Guard will be present and Taps will be played. Shannon Marrero will sing the national anthem and "God Bless America." Arbelo and his team aren't through yet, however. U.S. 27 runs up through Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan they are working to rename the highway Purple Heart Highway for its entire distance. Arbelo got the idea when he saw a section of I-95 named for the award. "Why the heck don't we do it?" he asked himself, and started his campaign here in Highlands County. It was a complicated process, Arbelo said. He needed to get the Florida legislature's approval, and then the federal DOT. He hopes people will stop by Saturday to pay their respects.

We have heard Alex Sink speak as well as all the other candidates for office. But has anyone ever heard Rick Scott utter one word? We only hear his mother telling us what a good boy he is. Is Rick mute? Does he have a high pitched female voice? What is he hiding among all his other transgressions, such as the $300,000,000 rip off of Medicare? Are we insane? Someone once said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Republicans are looking to win big in November so they can really fix our problems. Really? Isn't this the same party that was losing more than 700,000 jobs a month when they left office? The one that took the DOW from 14,000 to 6,000? The one that ushered in a global crisis that almost had us fighting over roadkill for dinner? The one that had our 401(k)s drop an average of 45 percent? The one that doubled our national debt? The one that tortured prisoners of war? The one that halted scientific research and denies global warming exists? The one whose diplomacy caused the rest of the world to stop talking to us? The one who gave us the "Great Uniter" who drove a deep, divisive wedge into our politics and our people? The one who got us into two wars without paying for them? I could go on and on. And now they claim to be the answer to our problems? Will we really do the same thing over and over and expect a different result? I won't! And by the way, stop calling yourselves "conservatives."

Planning to retire soon? Read this Social Security Esther Harris October has been singled out as a time to raise awareness for two of the most serious threats to women: Breast cancer and domestic violence.Thanks to the efforts of the American Cancer Society and an army of dedicated scientists and volunteers, we are beginning to understand just how many women struggle against breast cancer and are working on a cure. According to the American Cancer Society, in 2006 the latest data available 191,410 women were diagnosed with the disease, and 40,820 died as a result of it. These are large, sobering numbers indeed. Even more troubling, however, are the numbers related to domestic violence. According to the Violence Policy Center, of the women killed with firearms in 2002 almost two-thirds were killed by their intimate partners. That is three times more than the number of women who were killed by male strangers using any type of weapon, in single-victim, single-perpetrator attacks. According to the Department of Justice, of the 3.5 million violent crimes against family members between 1998 and 2002, 49 percent were against spouses. Among spouse abuse victims, 84 percent were females. Exact figures are hard to pin down because so much family violence goes unreported, but the Domestic Violence Resource Center estimates from 960,000 to three million women are assaulted by a spouse or boyfriend every year. One in four women has experienced domestic violence in her lifetime, and one in five female teens report violent abuse by their boyfriends. These numbers relate only to the direct victims of violence. They do not include the 3.3 to 10 million children who authorities estimate witness the violence. It is impossible to estimate the damage done to them. Fortunately, science is making progress against cancer. Sadly, progress is much slower in dealing with domestic violence. This is understandable. There are far more variables involved with violence psychology that is never exactly the same person to person, the dynamics within families, the vast spectrum of what triggers violence, and the generational patterns of behavior that have to unlearned one individual at a time. While we understand one of the best preventatives to violence is helping and teaching the young, it won't help the women, and men, suffering domestic violence today. For centuries, violence against women was accepted as normal. Now that society has learned how unacceptable it is, both perpetrators and victims have gone underground, hiding shame and guilt. It takes a brave soul to break out of the abusive cycle, especially when violence has been threatened and one's self-esteem destroyed. We are far from a cure. In fact, we're only just beginning to identify markers in potential abusers extreme jealousy, blaming others for his/her own problems, distrust of people generally, temper tantrums, impulsiveness, and being overly dependent upon only one person are just a few. Sadly, unlike medicine, we will never find an inoculation that protects us from each other. But, just as there was a time when cancer was seen as unstoppable and forever, we can work to create a time when violence is rare. Be willing to speak out; encourage local government to support law enforcement efforts; make sure the school board has programs to teach children alternatives to violence; support the development of after school programs; report suspicions of domestic violence to authorities; and organize fund raisers to help support hot-lines and safe houses; or volunteer at one. Violence is not a virus, although it can spread as if it were. It can, however, be brought under control. But it will each one us to accomplish that. The National Domestic Violence Hotline is 1-800799-7233. Cancer and domestic violence can be overcome The upcoming elections all have one thing in common. There's a higher than average level of hysteria about what it all means. The constant analysis from every corner of the media and the steady stream of TVads is wearing us all out. Instead of making for a richer discussion about health care, new jobs or immigration we've gotten bogged down in mass worry. We are spending a lot of time thinking about what's not happening. The question that the media and politicians want to stir up isn't about solving what's right in front of us but an open-ended query about whether or not we can stop unknown catastrophes in the future. There's a list of tempting choices like possible terrorists on our soil or Wall Street running amok or health care being denied to seniors. That one about Wall Street gives me a pause occasionally. However, we can only create change in the day that we're actually in by taking the next small step in front of us. Looking out at the horizon and worrying generally leads to doing nothing at all. Besides, most of what we fret about never actually happens. Even worse, while we were so busy trying to prognosticate we miss opportunities to build something that would improve, enrich and stretch the boundaries of our communities for the better. Imagine if all of those early pioneers had first worried about what might happen when heading westward. They'd never have left at all. If we were to just insist that the topics be kept to what each politician plans to do next we'd finally have a clearer picture of where they actually stand on each issue. It'd probably be more boring but good government isn't supposed to be entertaining. It's not too late to step back and take a look at where each candidate in your area stands on the issues that matter to you. Go to their individual web sites and start reading. Pay careful attention to whether or not there are any quantifiable suggestions about how they plan to accomplish the tasks. Or are there loads of broad statements about what could go wrong or how things ought t o look without any specifics from them on how they'll accomplish their goals. We don't need a lot of details but g et enough to see if th e candidate really knows how to han dle the role. That would be a minimum in a job interview. If any of the rest of us was asked in an interview how we'd strengthen the bottom line and all we said was los ing market share was bad f or business, we'd be shown th e door. Yet, somehow we get turned around by the pundi ts and attack ads till we are so worried about what's not actually happening that we forget to ask the right questions. So, with the two weeks w e have left, visit your candidates'web sites and bring along a few questions that apply specifically to your current situation. Look for answers on health care that you need to know for the upcoming year and see if they have specific steps to a solution. Take the same approach to making sure the infrastructure such as roads and schools are up to date and reliable. We can even use th e same process to determine if there's any kind of reasonable steps to create new job s or are they only pointing ou t we need them. Thanks, we already knew that one. Then, prioritize the list in order of what needs doing most. Every family knows that there may be a long lis t but they can't all get done a t once for a variety of reason s. One of the biggest is the budget. Ask where the money is coming from to pay for all of it. Don't get distracted b y the alarmists who insist tha t we need to do it now and can worry about paying for it later. Take into considera tion how each decision will affect the community right around you. Armed with that much information you'll be able t o turn off your TVfor awhile and go hang out with friend s and family instead. Make sure and vote everyone. Martha's latest book is the memoir, A Place to Call Home. www.MarthaRandolphCarr.com. Email Martha at: Martha@caglecartoons.com. Think, think, think Guest Column Martha Randolph Carr We need to take our nation backEditor: Within two years our nation has been devoured by a fungus that has been festering for the past 100 years. The blight I'm speaking of is devouring our freedoms, our liberties and our lives, not to mention the destruction of our nation. Here's a short list of the conspirators with the above agenda. Anarchists, unions, communists, dictators, fascists, Marxists, socialists and progressives, all are working as one. The media always becomes their ally. I hope this idea is planted. In Florida, there's a fungus that buries itself in the roots of grass then spreads its tentacles throughout the lawn. The spoors take nutrients and water from the roots. In time, the grass is all but dead. The fungus never contributes to the grass but consumes all of its nutrients. There is a violent plan, which like that fungus will enslave and destroy us. This is not a fantasy. Within this equation there are three major people groups. The Leftists named above, Conservatives, that are being outflanked by the Leftists and the "I Don't Care" group, which is the largest. Others are demanding to get what they want without working. The President's agenda seems to be completing the spread of this fungus throughout our nation. The political machine is a part of this fungus. Mafia tactics are being used. The President and his czars have been given unmitigated power with no accountability to anyone but him. The one world order which is looking for their dictator is pulling the strings. Our workers are being taxed to death. Their jobs are being outsourced to other countries that have stolen their jobs. This progressive government has laid the traps for our demise. We must stop thinking "me" and think "we." Let's get the nerve to take our nation back. John Lankford SebringSebring has much to rememberEditor: After living happily in Sebring for 24 years, we are moving back to Ohio to enjoy our 13 children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We have seen Sebring grow from a small city to a much larger city with many new businesses. It has always been a great place to call home. We would like to thank our local businesses that have assisted us in our many needs Bagwell Lumber, Jarrett Ford, Aluminum Related Products and many others. We wish to thank Kitson & Partners Ron, David, Megan, The Pro Shop all employees of Sun 'N Lake as well as the employees of Town Hall. Gene has worked on the golf course there for many years and knows almost every one that golfs. Evodine would like to thank Dr. Rogers, Dr. C.B. Patel, Dr. Sankar for the opportunity to work for them. The girls I worked with are the best. Also thanks to the many doctors, especially Dr. C.B. Patel, Dr. Sankar, Dr. Rogers, Dr. Shah, Dr. Lamp, Dr. Sharma and Dr. Chaudhri. We will miss the many friends we have made here, whether golfing or working and other friends in Sun 'N Lake. We will especially miss our 96-year-old friend, Nell. If you ever visit Ohio, you are welcome to stop and see us. Sebring and Sun N Lake, thanks again for a wonderful 24 years. We will come back to visit. Evodine and Gene South SebringCongress needs to act now on planEditor: Our statewide average unemployment rate is still above 11 percent and we remain in the midst of a troubling economic climate. With that in mind, I believe the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) planned regulations on greenhouse gas emissions from stationary sources will only further strain our economy and contribute to more jo b loss in our state. All sorts of businesses will be affected since station ary sources can include agricultural sites, commercial facilities, and hos pitals. Representing Florida Citrus Grower Associates Inc. a Floridabased citrus growers organization, Florida's economy will face serious consequences if these new rules by the EPAare enacted at the start of 2011. Businesses will be required to obtain expensive and time-consuming permits for new construction an d equipment, as well as modifications to existing sources. The EPA's new rules will also lea d to an influx of permit applications that will delay or even cancel expan sion and other critical investments in our economy. The state's agricultur e industry already saw a decline of more than 1,200 jobs between 2008 and 2009. Our state is a leader in producing citrus and our agriculture communi ty can certainly expect to feel the pinc h of these new regulations. Florida's farmers cannot handle more regulations that will make it harder for us to survive in this economy. Congre ss needs to quickly take action to post pone these new requirements before it is too late. Marvin Kah n Preside nt Florida Citrus Grower Associate s, Inc.

This is because the m ayor is tasked with breaking t ie votes on the council. Royce said this restriction d oes not apply to city employe es, and he would be able to t alk to a town manager. Royce also said that with a m anager there could be a reorg anization of the town staff. T he manger could take over s ome or all of the duties of a d epartment head, and the t own would save money in the e conomies. Mostly both Royce and B astardi said it was time for a p rofessional to be in charge. Members of the audience d id not agree. Bill Compton said that the t own is only approximately f our square miles in size, has a population of just over 1 ,700 people, with a staff of f ive department heads and 30 e mployees and wonders why w ould an entity that small r equire a manager. Figuring a salary of $ 70,000 (confirmed by Mayor J ohn Holbrook) and benefits l ike health insurance, vacat ion, sick leave and retirem ent, Compton said the mana ger's package would be a round $100,000 a year. Add to that the cost of recruiting the manager to that, he said, and the expense becomes burdensome. Compton added that a real cost benefit analysis needed to be done before anyone could say one way or the other whether a town manager would save money. "I understand your points," he told Royce. "If the town were larger, or growing, I might agree with you, but this is putting the cart before the horse." Ronald Hall agreed with Compton, adding there were even more costs. He said the manager would need a secretary, company car and office space currently a real problem with staff crammed into the small town hall. Hall's main complaint, however, had to do with basic democracy. "Here we can come and complain," he said, indicating the council. "I'm definitely voting no." Frank Haig asked the council if any department heads had ever been dismissed, or if the town evaluated their performances at all. Arlene Tuck, town clerk, said no to each question. Haig said if there wasn't a problem with the department heads, he didn't see a need for a manager. Worley's objections were about the actual process of the referendum, as opposed to creating a management position. She is particularly concerned that the wording of the referendum does not include all the changes that would occur if it passed. "The devil is in the detail," she said. Currently, because the position is administrative, the mayor only votes to break ties. Under the new charter he would begin voting with the council. She was also worried that the wording on the referendum meant a town manager would have to be hired by Nov. 30. Finally, she disagreed with the proposal that the manager, town clerk and attorney should be equals answerable to the council, and warned that the ballot did not explain this. "I'm just saying I want our town to get things right," Worley said. "It just concerns me. Can you say the ballot and the ordinance agree?" "The ballot speaks to what the ordinance says," replied Royce. "We're arguing semantics. It's important to have an advanced, professional staff." He added it wasn't as important to dot every "i" and cross every "t."

a llowing the program to o perate free of charge. Eighty p ercent of the students served i n the program receive free a nd reduced lunch. More than 5 0 percent of the students c ome from a female-headed h ousehold. "Really we provide a servi ce to our community with no c harge of our program," said V eith. The Afterschool A lliance program picks up a nd drops off students at each o f the middle schools. The p rogram begins right after s chool and lasts for two h ours. Veith has noticed that some p arents are opposed to stud ents spending another two h ours after school doing m ore work and wants parents t o know that it is not exclus ively a tutoring program. "We are middle ground. W e provide afternoon snacks, h omework help, as well a lot o f fun activities for students," s aid Veith. "We want to build a program that is good and n on-repetitive. We want the s tudents to come back every y ear, we want community s upport." Hill-Gustat sixth-grader D ante Lepe began in the prog ram when it first debuted l ast year. Lepe worked with T odd Hutchinson on his math w ork during the beginning of t he program, but has enjoyed t he other aspects of the prog ram. "I like the guitar lessons. I t's really fun and I like l earning something new," L epe said. Lepe also felt that t he program not only prov ides fun but is benefiting h im academically as well. "I need math help and the p rograms is helping with t hat. My math grade is a lot b etter now," said Lepe. Other students, like Selena B adillo, benefit a great deal m ore than most. Badillo ,who i s of Hispanic decent, is a b ilingual eighth-grader. B adillo spends every aftern oon in the program getting h elp because she has no place e lse to get it. "My parents don't speak E nglish, so being here is the o nly way I can ask questions o r get any help with my h omework when I need it," s he said. Badillo had finished all her h omework well before the a cademic portion of the prog ram ended and read silently m ost of the hour. Badillo is a b right yet reserved girl who s ays the program is "fun and g ood for me." Veith explained that B adillo was not only bright b ut helpful as well. "She t ranslates for about three or f our students we have here. T hose students don't speak a ny English; neither do their p arents," said Veith. For students like Badillo, t he Afterschool Alliance is v ital to their academic as well as social progression. "I can't go home and ask for help, and I can't learn any of the things I'm learning here at home either," said Badillo. Following the academic/homework hour, the students break off into groups for 20-minute stations. On this particular day the five activities were guitar lessons, computer lab/keyboarding, rocket building, canine projects, and a Greek mythology center. Cracker Trail Elementary instructor Tanya Koehler taught students about Greek gods and goddesses as she tied in the novel "Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief." "I'm using this book to tie it all in since Greek mythology is what they are already covering in class. I enjoy it and I'm seeing that they do too," said Koehler. Hutchinson's center allowed the students to construct rockets. Lindsey Young's group worked on a K-9 project where the students studied a selected breed and created a packet about each and Casey Downing spent his afternoon teaching students how to strum a few bars on the guitars. The students had an afternoon of stimulating and various activities to keep their brains working and themselves out of trouble. According to the America After 3PM survey, between the hours of 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. 25 percent of students are responsible of taking care of themselves until their parents get home. Students spend over eight hours a week unsupervised. "It's just so easy for students to fall into bad habits and cause trouble for themselves," said Veith. "What we are trying to do is not just help with homework, but give these kids an opportunity to learn to be responsible on their own and give them a way to stay out of trouble."

We b elieve that to continue in c ircuit court is ill advised and n ot in the best interests of the c ounty or its citizens," R hodes said. "It appears to me we are m aking this a little more c omplicated than we need to. W e need to decide on w hether we need to continue w ith the appeal, that's the m ajority of the letters and em ails we have received over t he past couple of weeks," B oard Chairman Don Bates s aid. But Macbeth pressed for t he appeal. "Looking at the specific v iolation, 5.6.105, the special m agistrate held that the code w as not violated because this w as on agricultural property. I f that is correct and the board allows that to stand, then there is no ordinance on agricultural land at all," Macbeth said. Commissioner Barbara Stewart and Macbeth bantered back and forth over the technical aspects of code sections. "Look, this is not that difficult," Macbeth told commissioners. "If you have a bird that is squawking all day long in an agricultural zoning districts, that is not a violation, OK, right now your ordinance is not enforceable," "We could debate this paragraph or that paragraph all day long. We want this problem solved. Ross, how do we fix this so these guys can continue to do business?" Carlson asked. "This is a bigger question. Do you want to continue to prosecute dog barking in agricultural zoning?" Macbeth asked. "When I hire a lawyer, I have a problem I want solved," Carlson said. "I want to end this lawsuit and let these people have their business." Citizens also expressed their desire to stop the lawsuit. "I think we have been bored to death by the numbers flying around. Put this to rest. This whole case stinks. This is ridiculous," Gordon Russo, a Highlands County resident who lives on agricultural land said. "This whole thing, this whole case is a farce. Barking dogs and belching cows cannot be stopped." "I am upset that we have spent over $14,000 on attorney's fees. I am sure you are fabulous sir, but you are not worth that much. It is amazing to me why this continues on and wastes taxpayers' money on this. I am sorry that I am upset, but I think this is a damn joke," Shirley Kuznarik said.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID "It wouldn't be a Sebring, Lake Placid match if it didn't go five games," Lady Blue Streak head coach Venessa Sinness said after her squad pulled off another win in this exciting, long-running series. Adding to the excitement on this night was Sebring having to stave off elimination twice, trailing in the match 2-1 at one point and being within two points of dropping the 15-point tiebreaker. After cruising to a 25-12 opening-game win that put a momentary damper on the Lady Dragons'senior night, Lake Placid bounced back with a 25-17 win to even things up. The momentum seemed fully shifted when the Dragons then broke out in the third game when a Taylor Miller kill sparked a 6-1 run and a gave them a commanding 24-16 lead. They would close out the win, but not before the Lady Streaks had a little run of their own to get at least a measure of momentum back in the 25-20 contest. Down two games to one, Sebring needed whatever momentum they could get with the loud and boisterous Lake Placid crowd ready to burst with the potential of their first win over the Streaks in four years. "They always play a big part in the excitement," Sinness said. "They have a great crowd that really gets into it." But Sebring didn't get rattled, keeping close in the back-and-forth early goin g of game four. Tied at 11-apiece, Sebrin g scored seven of the ne xt eight points, with Brittan y Whittington getting a k ill SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, October 20, 2010NASCAR This WeekPage 4 B D ISTRICT S POTLIGHT (through Week 6)D ISTRICT 9-3A Dist.

Lake Placid then got some big points as Shannon Cummings and Deta Waller took first and second, respectively, in the Girls 100 Butterfly and Kevin Smit took the top spot for the boys. But Kirsch got some points back for Sebring, taking second in the Girls 100 Free, though Camille Renzoni and Shannon Viox took third and fourth to keep the numbers rolling for the Dragons.

Heflin got a win on the boys side of the event for Sebring with Padovano and Allcorn taking second and third for Lake Placid. Cope then got an LPwin in the 100 Breaststroke and Miller got some first-place points for the Streaks on the boys side. Sebring then closed it out with a second in the Girls 400 Free Relay as Bryan, Burger, Nicol Munoz and Kirsch edged Dragons'Viox, Renzoni, Cope and Cummings by less than one second. But then the Dragons wrapped it up with a first and third on the boys side of the event, sandwiching Sebring's second-place finish. Smit, Allcorn, McCullough and Weber-Callahan were the Lake Placid winners, Heflin, Eric Dunn, Ortiz and Miller were second for Sebring and Kyle LeBlanc, Kimrey, Cody Lambert and Velazquez were third for the Dragons. And when the water had calmed and the point totals tallied, Lake Placid had piled up 1,139 points to Sebring's 967, far outdistancing the rest of the field. Okeechobee was third overall at 649, Bishop Verot fourth with 623, Frostproof was next with 350 for fifth, keeping ahead of Avon Park's 306-point total and Hardee's 295. "It was impossible to be on the pool deck and not sense the energy and excitement as all eight teams gave their maximum effort in each of the events to be the Heartland winner," Dragon head coach Tom Creel said.

"I wasn't sure if t hey'd be able to handle the p ressure, and they didn't do them in a row, but we did do five positive things." Among those were consecutive aces from Sam Jansen that helped the Streaks draw even at 13. Neilander had another kill to get Lake Placid within one of the win, but Sebring evened things up again. Another Dragon score brought things to a fever pitch, but the Streaks again tied things up and then closed it out with West collecting her match-high 16th kill of the night. Whittington added eight kills for the Streaks, Bianca Nortelus had 22 digs and Dino Lower set up the offense with 21 assists.

"We've gone through a tough stretch where we've really been struggling," Sinness said. "We've needed to come together and build some momentum as we head toward districts. This was a great win and gives us something to build on." And even with the loss, Lake Placid head coach Linette Wells focused on the positives. "I've been waiting for this match all season," she said. "And if anything, the girls needed to come down as they, at times, were too anxious. It was exciting and we played at a nice, high level which should help when we go to the district tournament." Each squad has one more match this week before heading to their respective tournaments.

Kevin Harvick, whose performance was easily best in the regular season, is now third behind Johnson and Denny Hamlin. Youve just got to go out and keep doing the things that youre doing,Ž said Harvick, and play your own game and where it all falls at the end.Ž Where it falls at the endŽ should be familiar at this point. Second class of five „ The NASCAR Hall of Fame announced its 2011 inductees: David Pearson, Bobby Allison, Lee Petty, Ned Jarrett and Bud Moore. The quintet will be inducted next May. Between them, the four drivers combined for nine championships. Moore, a decorated World War II veteran, achieved success as owner, crew chief and mechanic, winning with drivers such as Allison, Joe Weatherly, Buddy Baker, Dale Earnhardt, Benny Parsons, Geoff Bodine and Billy Wade. A thaw „ Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski actually get along these days, or so Edwards said. Yeah, I think Brad has done a really good job of just maintaining and doing his best,Ž said Keselowskis probation partner. Hes gone over the line with me a couple of times and weve gone round and round about it, but still, we can walk up to each other and shake hands and go have a good race. I think that says a lot about him as a person, so I feel that weve raced really well with one another since Gateway (where they notably didnt), and thats good.Ž Slightly greener „ NASCAR announced it will make a transition to E15Ž „ a fuel mixture comprised of 15 percent ethanol „ in Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck next year. Chairman and CEO Brian France said the move was being made because its good for racing, good for the environment and good for America.Ž He added that it continues the greening of our sport.Ž Notably absent „ Longtime motorsports writer Jack Flowers was honored with a memorial service at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Flowers, 72, died on Oct. 11 after a long period of health problems. He had covered NASCAR races since the late 1950s. Flowers once covered every NASCAR race on site for 17 years. Flowers worked at CMS as a pit-note reporter in recent years, as did Judy Tucker, who won the Joe Littlejohn Award for service to the National Motorsports Press Association.

Dillon grabbed the lead from eventual third-place finisher James Buescher with 35 laps remaining.CAMPING WORLD TRUCK By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week CONCORD, N.C. „ Jamie McMurrays victory in the Bank of America 500 represented a charge he leads alone. McMurray didnt make the Chase for the Sprint Cup. What he has done is win three of the seasons prestigious events. Earlier in the season, McMurray won the Daytona 500 and Brickyard 400. In 2007-2008, Chase drivers won all 10 Chase races. McMurray broke that string by winning the autumn 2009 race at Talladega and did it again on Saturday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway. In other words, there is life outside the Chase. Mainly it resides in the cockpit of the No. 1 Bass Pro Shops Chevy. McMurrays Chevy outran Kyle Buschs Toyota in the late stages of the Bank of America 500. After coming so close (second) in the (Coca-Cola) 600 earlier in the season, I really felt like anything less than winning (at Charlotte) would have been disappointing,Ž said McMurray. We had such a great car in the spring, and it just wasnt good enough on the short run. Man, it was just our night. Our car was unbelievable those last 25 or 30 laps. It was effortless to drive, and it had a lot of speed in it. It was just a really good night for us.Ž McMurrays first Cup victory occurred in the same race eight years earlier. What he has learned in the past two years, in particular, is the power of prayer. I just wanted it to be understood that, after the season that I had, or the last four years I had, I found the power of prayer, and that its something that I really believe in,Ž he said after winning at CMS. When I got to victory lane in Daytona, thats what I was thinking about. You know, I was crying, obviously because I was happy, but also because you feel like a prayer has been answered.Ž McMurray said he was praying during the final 10 laps. I was like, you know, if I win this race, Lord, if You dont throw a caution, is what I said, and I win this race, Im going to explain to people my feelings and why I felt that way.ŽWinning the Cup means stepping it up for No. 48Mac Wins The CheeseV E R S U S 2010 STANDINGSSprint Cup Pts.1.

Jamie McMurrays average “ nish in the two Charlotte points races is 1.5. Whos not: Kurt Buschs Charlotte was much worse in the fall than it was in the spring. ... Coming off a win in Fontana, Tony Stewart was a nonentity in the Bank of America 500. Jimmie Johnson has “nished third or better in four straight races. A breakaway is in progress. Only Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick are within 150 points. Jeff Gordons whimsical take on teammate Jimmie Johnsons spin early in the Bank of America 500: Ah, that was just to get (crew chief) Chad (Knaus) to tighten the car up. Chad wasnt listening to him. He thought he needed to keep it loose, and, so, Jimmie showed him how loose it really was, and they tightened it up and he went to the front.Ž Kyle Busch sounded downtrodden after the race: Nobody can put it in perspective right now. Its very, very disappointing. Had the best car all night and gave it up, just ”at-out gave it away and its real, real frustrating to not come out of here with a win at a track that I have yet to win at and have been so fast at.Ž Uh, he “ nished second. The past eight races at Martinsville Speedway have been won by either Johnson (5) or Hamlin (3). Bristol Motor Speedway General Manager Jeff Byrd died of cancer at age 60 on Oct. 17. He will long be remembered for his kindness, his decency and his sense of humor. Hamlin needs another victory at Martinsville, and in the worst way. He has lost ground to Johnson in four consecutive races. Not only have crowds been down at most tracks. Those who do attend the races seem to be far more likely to leave early. The Tony Stewart surge ended as quickly as it started. Besides, two races dont really constitute a trend. In the next two weekends, the Chase moves from NASCARs shortest track, Martinsville, to its longest oval, Talladega. Dale Earnhardt Jr. has one top-10 “nish „ fourth in New Hampshire „ in the past 13 races. Stewart KahneOfficially, Kahne fell ill and was unable to pilot his repaired Ford at Charlotte Motor Speedway. But Kahne ran a five-kilometer road race (for charity) the morning after the night race. Without question, Kahne was angry after having his brakes fail for the second time in three races. He later referred to the brake problems as a joke.Ž J.J. Yeley finished the race in the Budweiser Ford. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: Kahne, whos leaving the team at years end, is sort of like the guy who wins the lottery and says hes going to keep his job but adds, Im certainly not going to put up with any nonsense.ŽKASEY KAHNE VS. RPMMcMurray coming up with big-time wins this season JohnsonLIFE OUTSIDE THE CHASEJohn Clark/NASCAR This WeekThough hes not in the Chase, Jamie McMurray will be known for winning the Daytona 500, Brickyard 400 and the Bank of America 5 00 this season. The driver attributes his recent success to the power of prayer. This Week welcomes letters to the editor, but please be aware that we have room for only a few each week. Well do our best to select the best, but individual replies are impossible due to the bulk of mail received. Please do not send stamped and self-addressed envelopes with your letters, which should be addressed to: NASCAR This Week, The Gaston Gazette, P.O. Box 1538, Gastonia, N.C. 28053.No love for the Hall?Dear NASCAR This Week, ƒ I have come to one conclusion: NASCAR is a joke. (Darrell) Waltrip and (Cale) Yarborough deserve to be in the Hall before (Bobby) Allison and Lee Petty because of their dominance and their championships. To exclude people based on likes, dislikes and whether or not they had anything to do with the sport after retirement, as in the case of Yarborough, is just stupid. Greatness should be judged against itself not against how friendly a driver is. Ty Cobb was in the first baseball HOF class because he could flat-out play baseball, not because he was a good guy. NASCAR should nominate drivers based on accomplishment, not on how nice they were. Scott Carpenter Cherryville, N.C. Only five are inducted each year. The Hall is so exclusive that controversy is unavoidable. This years selections were greeted by a great deal of it. Kurt Busch Victory Junction Open House and Chairman Chats on wayVictory Junction Gang Camp, in Randleman, N.C., will hold a public open house on Saturday, Oct. 23, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to hold a grand opening of Dale Jr.s Corral and Amphitheatre, will special guests Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Petty families. The amphitheater is Western-themed, with a mock jail, general store, bank and outhouse. Victory Junction Gang Camp, for sick children, was founded by Kyle and Pattie Petty in memory of their late son, Adam, who was killed in a 2000 racing accident. Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch is broadcasting bimonthly Chairmans ChatsŽ on UStream.

This system of health care is used extensively by one-quarter of the worlds population residing in Asia, and is rapidly growing in popularity in the West. 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.

The home of James Baker at 116 Glenwood Ave. is worth the drive. The Avon Park Founders Garden Club has presented Baker with the Yard of the Month Award. The use of color and texture in his landscape design presents a pleasant picture. When asked how he decided what plants to use and where to place them, he replied, "I asked the Lord for help and He told me what to do." Because he is retired, Baker spends hours working in his yard. In an area Baker described as ugly, he has planted a Mexican banana, loropetalum, variegated scheffelerra, azalea and Mexican petunia, to divert your attention from the electric pole and box. He has used Mexican petunia with its tall spikes and purple flowers, in many areas of the yard. The plant forms a hedge along the front of the house and he has used it to encircle a gardenia bush, keeping it trimmed to a lower height so the gardenia can be seen. There are many canna lilies, both the tall red flowering spike and the shorter yellow variety. The taller red spike has large, broad green and purple colored leaves. Some of the plants used in the landscape design have been given to him by friends and family. In the back yard, he has several trees, including a tangerine, an orange, a fig, an apple tree from Pennsylvania and a peach tree from Georgia. It isn't recommended to bring plants from other areas of the country, but these trees seem to be doing well. He has placed a wooden bench in his "orchard," where he can sit and enjoy his yard. Baker believes in letting the plant tell you where it belongs. If a plant doesn't do well where he has planted it, he moves it until he finds a place where the plant will thrive. There are many other plants in this yard that deserve to be mentioned. In a small yard he has used hydrangea, crepe myrtle, liriop e, tababuia, honeysuckle, camelia roses, Afric an iris, plumbago, mandevilla and Queen palm s, all without giving the yard an appearance of being crowded. He also has an unusual looki ng tree that bears yellow flowers on upwa rd growing spikes. If you know of a yard deserving of the Ya rd of the Month Award in Avon Park, call 45 21927. Baker has Founders Yard of Month Dustin Kopta and Casey McKinney Courtesy pho to Anita Helbig from the Avon Park Founders Garden Club presents the Yard of the Month Award to James Baker at his home, 116 Glenwood Ave.

A ll are happy for the return o f Dolly and Don Blonde, w ho were able to spend some t ime with family in M ichigan.

Ruth Lee had knee surgery completed in Minnesota over the summer; is healed and walking great. Shirley Young has been plagued with a shoulder problem for years, and we all hope her latest surgery relieves the problem. Shirley and Ray were blessed just prior to her surgery on Shirley's birthday with the arrival of great granddaughter, Addison Grace. Addison has already traveled to Sebring from Stuart for an overnight visit. Congratulations to Ray and Shirley. Peggy George is home recovering after a hospital stay recently. Becky Sims has upcoming shoulder surgery late this month. We are happy to see our manager, Tim, out and about after his recent back/rib problems. Our prayers and best wishes are extended to all. Sincere sympathy is extended to the family of Woo Lee, a resident of Town and Country who died in September. Although we didn't know Mr. Lee well, he was always a very pleasant gentleman and know will be missed by many. Congratulations to Leo and Claudette Boisvert on the beautiful planter complete with palm tree and plantings gracing their front lawn. They have also winterized their screened porch so it can be utilized in all weather. Jim Lewis has been doing numerous renovations and improvements to the home he purchased in Town and Country last fall. Also, Bill LaPeer has added lovely landscaping to his lot and home. Constant improving helps us continue as a very lovely and desirable mobile home park. Hope we all get out and enjoy the various activities offered in the community. The Caladium Festival in Lake Placid (my caladiums are just gorgeous); the Heartland Riders weekend plus the huge barbecue at the Firemen's Field; the Little Theater plays will be commencing in November with "Oklahoma" the first event.

Associated PressNEWYORK In grim news for video game companies, market researcher NPD Group said Thursday U.S. retail sales of game hardware, software and accessories fell 8 percent in September to $1.2 billion. Game hardware sales tumbled 19 percent to $383 million as fewer people bought Wii and PlayStation 3 consoles. Only the Xbox 360 sold more units during the month than it did the same time a year ago. Citing NPD figures, Microsoft said it sold 484,000 of the consoles, up 37 percent year-over-year. Nintendo, meanwhile, sold 403,000 of its handheld DS systems in the U.S., and 254,000 Wii consoles. Sony would not disclose how many PlayStations it sold, and NPD stopped disclosing the sales figures for individual gaming systems this month. Software sales were also down, dropping 6 percent to $614 million, though analysts were expecting a slight increase. Microsoft blockbuster "Halo: Reach" sold 3.3 million units, but it wasn't enough to lift the category. Other top-selling games included "Madden NFL11" from Electronic Arts Inc. and "Dead Rising 2" fro m Capcom USA. Jesse Divnich, an analy st with Electron ic Entertainment Design an d Research, said he had expec ted software sales to grow 3 percent. Part of the decli ne could be attributed to "Halo ." The game is so popular th at the rest of the industry w as afraid to go up against it an d did not launch big titles la st month, he said. NPD Analyst Anita Frazi er said while retail sales show ed a decline, "it's important to remember that there is a growing volume of conte nt being sold digitally, or othe rwise outside the tradition al retail channel." That means more peop le are downloading games an d buying extra content onli ne though most video gam es are still sold in brick-an dmortar stores. DearAbby: I lived with m y best friend and her husb and for a few months after m oving to a new state. They r ecently went through a r ough patch and she took a v acation to cool off. In her a bsence, and under the influe nce of a great deal of alcoh ol, her husband and I slept t ogether. We decided it happ ened only because we were d runk and decided never to s peak of it again. The problem is it happ ened again, this time with a lmost no alcohol involved a t all! I'm reluctant to tell my f riend about our trysts. I t hink telling her will do m ore harm than good. On t he other hand, the guilt eats a t me every day to the point t hat I cry over what I've d one to her. Her husband d oesn't want to tell her, ever. W hat should I do? To Tell or Not to Tell DearTTorNot: Own y our guilt. You've earned it. A nd confess your sin to your r eligious adviser. But if you f eel that telling your friend w ill do more harm than g ood, remain silent. DearAbby: My husband o f 20 years is kind, loving a nd well-respected. He is o ne of the greatest guys you w ould ever meet. We have a great marriage, rarely fight and have many things in common. My problem? When he speaks, he frequently says "youse guys," and it drives me insane. I have a brother-in-law who uses "I seen" instead of "I saw," and I know it drives my sister crazy. How do we broach the subject with our hubbies without hurting their feelings, making them feel inadequate or angering them? I am not going to correct my husband in public, but when he says "youse guys" around our friends, I cringe. Help! Language Police in Wisconsin DearLanguage Police: I'm surprised that after 20 years of marriage you would only now be asking for advice on how to persuade your husband to use proper English. My advice is to tell him you love him and ask if he would like you to help him lose the "youse." If he agrees, start reminding him when he forgets. But if he says no, leave it alone and concentrate on his many virtues. In the scheme of things, isn't his one flaw rather insignificant? DearAbby : I recently sent an expensive flower arrangement to a dear friend in the hospital to let her know how much she means to me. When I went to visit, the flowers were not in her room. When I asked about them, she said she had given them to her nurse to display at the nurses'station. I'm assuming the gesture was to show her appreciation for the service they have given her. I am disappointed and hurt because they were meant to bring her some joy. I understand that when you give someone a present the person has every right to do whatever he or she wants with it, but I wish she would have waited until she was discharged to give the flowers away. Am I wrong to feel hurt? Disappointed in Cleveland DearDisappointed: The problem with nursing a hurt in silence is that it may be based on an incorrect assumption, so clear the air with your friend. If you ask her why she gave her flowers to the nurses, she may tell you she thought they were so lovely she wanted to share them with everyone who came to the floor. And that would mean your bouquet has brought joy many times over, which is what I would consider getting a big bang for your buck.

The leaves are changing. The nights are colder. It's sweater weather. It's harvest time. I love this time of year. It's finally cool enough to do some serious cooking without worrying about heating up your kitchen and the abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables has never been better. Let's focus a bit on those fruits. Although they are great to eat just as Mother Nature created them, there are lots we can do to add some kick to our traditional meals as well. Have you ever tried chicken with apricots? How about pork chops with honey and apples? And adding an assortment of berries when roasting meats is simply divine! Try baking up some of those apples. Just remove the core then add some raisins, a little honey and cinnamon in the empty space. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Yum! And just think of all the calories you just saved yourself by skipping the traditional apple pie (save that for Thanksgiving). Another fun way to serve up your fruitful bounty is in a Fall Fruit Salad. I've included a recipe for you below but feel free to get creative with this one. Add or subtract fruits to your heart's content. For a flavor that is more tart try adding some dried cranberries. You can add some extra crunch with a few almonds or even chopped celery. There's no limit to the fun you can have with your fall fruit.Fall Fruit SaladServes 4 1 apple, diced 1 pear, diced 1 peach, diced 1/2 cup green seedless grapes 1 cup low fat lemon yogurt 1/2 cup chopped walnuts In a large bowl, combine the apple, pear, peach and grapes. Toss with yogurt an d chill. Stir in the walnuts jus t before serving so the walnuts will maintain their crunch. You can also garnis h this with mint if desired.
