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. Royce also said that because of Government in the Sunshine Laws, he cannot sit privately with the mayor and discuss issues pending Looming Lake Placid manager vote stirs up more debate News-Sun photo by KATARASIMMON S The annual Hot Air Balloon Festival offered tethered rides and an impressive balloon glow exhibit that lit up the night sky Saturday evening at Henscratch Farms in Lake Placid.

Providing middle ground By SAMANTHAGHOLAR email@example.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. Agrant was written last year by the county and 21st Century was a recipient, Afterschool program favors both academic and social needs of students News Sun photo by SAMANTHAGHOLAR Eighth grader Selena Badillo reads quietly during the Aferschool Alliance program. Badillo not only spends her afternoons completing her work and participating in various activities, the bilingual student also serves as a translator for several of her classmates that only speak Spanish.

"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.

Commissioners voted 5-0 during a workshop Tuesday to direct Coun ty Attorney Ross Macbeth to draft an ordinance and to start the public hea ring process to exempt all dog kennels established prior to 1993 from prosecution of the noise ordinance. Commissioner Jeff Carlson made it clear that the board wanted the litigation stopped. "The intent of the motion was to end the case with the Dawg House ," Commissioner Carlson 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. Man arrested for attacking girl, 9 Massey Christopher Tuffley a nswered his phone to h ear, "Nice job, but you m ade 19 errors in the s tory Living History' O ct. 15th." Heart sinking to his s hoes, Tuffley stammered o ut a reply, wondering h ow he had gotten so m uch wrong. "My name is Cimino," J ack Cimino, W.W.II vet o f the 82nd Airborne, s aid. "Not that name you m isspelled." Tuffley, a dyslexic, had i nverted the m and the n. He is embarrassed and t ruly sorry. Correction By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY email@example.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.

Drop Back In for a diploma On all those incessant TV commercials we have heard Marco Rubio tell us how he will eliminate the national debt and reduce taxes, even Houdini couldn't pull of a trick like that! 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.

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.

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." Veith can be e-mailed at email@example.com or call 471-5610. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, October 20, 2010Page 7A Continued from page 1A r esidents. We are trying to p rovide a middle ground to b oth the business operator a nd balance the interests of t he neighbors. We believe it i s a fair resolution. 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 email@example.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."

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.

The comeback looked to b e short-lived though, as M iller caught fire, collecting t hree early kills to stake her s quad to a 4-1 lead in the f irst-to-15 rubber match. But a Whittington ace s tarted a 5-0 run before a nother Miller kill evened t hings at 6-6. Miller then added an ace a nd after an Alana Neilander k ill and Alysha Curtis ace, t he Dragons were two points f rom closing it out with a 131 0 lead. "At that point, I told the g irls that they need to do five g ood things in a row," S inness 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. Miller lead Lake Placid with 12 kills, Neilander had 24 digs and the setter combo of Weber and Rhony Gavagni doled out 16 and 15 assists, respectively. "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.

Page 4BNews-SunWednesday, October 20, 2010www.newssun.com By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week CONCORD, N.C. Even though Jimmie Johnson has won four straight Sprint Cup championships by essentially performing better in the Chase than in the regular season, those chasing him inexplicably fail to take it into account. Kevin Harvick, whose performance was easily best in the regular season, is now third behind Johnson and Denny Hamlin. Youve just got to go out and keep doing the things that youre doing, said Harvick, and play your own game and where it all falls at the end. Where it falls at the end 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, said Keselowskis probation partner. Hes gone over the line with me a couple of times and weve 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 weve raced really well with one another since Gateway (where they notably didnt), and thats good. Slightly greener NASCAR announced it will make a transition to E15 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 its good for racing, good for the environment and good for America. He added that it continues the greening of our sport. 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.

Jamie McMurrays victory in the Bank of America 500 represented a charge he leads alone. McMurray didnt make the Chase for the Sprint Cup. What he has done is win three of the seasons 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. McMurrays Chevy outran Kyle Buschs 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, said McMurray. We had such a great car in the spring, and it just wasnt 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. McMurrays 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 its something that I really believe in, he said after winning at CMS. When I got to victory lane in Daytona, thats 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. McMurray said he was praying during the final 10 laps. I was like, you know, if I win this race, Lord, if You dont throw a caution, is what I said, and I win this race, Im going to explain to people my feelings and why I felt that way.Winning the Cup means stepping it up for No. 48Mac Wins The CheeseV E R S U S 2010 STANDINGSSprint Cup Pts.1.

Jamie McMurrays average nish in the two Charlotte points races is 1.5. Whos not: Kurt Buschs 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 Gordons whimsical take on teammate Jimmie Johnsons spin early in the Bank of America 500: Ah, that was just to get (crew chief) Chad (Knaus) to tighten the car up. Chad wasnt 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. Kyle Busch sounded downtrodden after the race: Nobody can put it in perspective right now. Its very, very disappointing. Had the best car all night and gave it up, just at-out gave it away and its 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. 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 dont really constitute a trend. In the next two weekends, the Chase moves from NASCARs 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. J.J. Yeley finished the race in the Budweiser Ford. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: Kahne, whos leaving the team at years end, is sort of like the guy who wins the lottery and says hes going to keep his job but adds, Im certainly not going to put up with any nonsense.KASEY KAHNE VS.

Box 1538, Gastonia, N.C. 28053.No love for the Hall?Dear NASCAR This Week, 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 years selections were greeted by a great deal of it.

This system of health care is used extensively by one-quarter of the worlds 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. Through acupuncture, Qi (energy) is allowed to move freely throughout the body, reestablishing balance. This balance helps the body achieve higher levels of health and well-being.Chinese HerbsFor as long as people and plants have coexisted, herbal medicine has been around in some shape or form. It has been found to very helpful in treating conditions such as allergies, ADD and ADHD, menopausal syndrome, chronic pain and many, many other ailments.Jeanie O. Lee, D.A.O.M.

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. Don suffered a fall l ast summer, which cost him h ospitalization, rehabilitation a nd great patience from wife D olly. He is presently doing v ery well and everyone is so t hankful. Ahearty welcome t o all. Recent visitors include A my Clark, Barbara Wilson's d aughter, who came in from I ndiana to enjoy her mom p lus some beach time.

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. Of course, Heartland Idol continues every Thursday night at the downtown Circle until November.

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.
