By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.c omSEBRING Ever paused in a lush garden its boughs bending in a gentle breeze, the light and shade bringing out a zillion different greens to watch butterflies flicker, flutter and float from red pentas to a yellow cassia to a bed of purple lantanas? Here is an opportunity for those who have ever wished to have such an Eden outside their own door. Betty Podmore, an experienced and avid butterfly garden gardener, is joining with two other enthusiasts to provide a butterfly garden tour Nov. 9 for those who want to start a garden themselves, or who simply want to learn more, or who would enjoy a few hours outdoors surrounded by natural beauty. The emphasis will be on identifying the different plants that attract butterflies, as well as the wide variety of butterflies a well thought out garden can attract. A chance to dance with the butterflies Butterfly tour set for Nov. 9 Contrary to advice from attorneyBy ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK Commissioners voted 3-0 to approve two grant agreements for over $123,000 between the Highlands County Hospital District and Samaritan's Touch, despite the legal advice from the County Attorney Ross Macbeth and several other attorneys. Commissioners Jeff Carlson was absent because of family obligations and Commissioner Edgar Stokes was not present because of his duties during election day as the commission's representative to the canvassing board. The discussion centered around recent court case that ruled that taxpayer money could not be given to religious organizations, and Samaritan's Touch has clearly stated that it is religionbased, according to Macbeth. "We have an organization that is primarily dedicated to providing medical care to the community. They have a Christian faith component to that that is part of the service. It is being minimized by the current statements, but I have not been provided with anything that indicates that those kind of services are not being provided," Macbeth said.

City Manager Bruce Behrens presented his request for a proposal (RFP) to the council to determine the costs the city might incur for a consultant to look into the costs of a public safety director, but council directed the discussion towards Behrens'decision on Friday to appoint Cmdr. Michael J. Rowan the permanent police chief. "I know you have been here just 30 days, but I am sure that you have not had time to dig into our budget. There is n o money for consultants of an y type.

by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK South Florida Community College is holding a Green Energy Day Institute from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at the University Center Auditorium. The event is open to the public, free and refreshments will be served. Charlotte Pressler, coordinator of the honors program and service learning, said, "We hope very much that members of the general public will be willing to attend. (They) can learn about innovative research and businesses that will move this area past boom-and-bust cycles and low-wage, low-skill jobs and into a green, sound, sustainable and prosperous future." Dan Murphy, director of Highlands County Economic Commission, is scheduled to present an historical context, reviewing Highlands County's economy past and present. John Alleyne, director of the Highlands County Extension Office, is scheduled to present a report on bio-fuel research and industries in the county. Kevin Cooper, director of the Indian River State College Banner Center, is scheduled to present an overview of the Green Revolution, including present challenges and successes, as well as future opportunities. In a telephone interview, Cooper said some people will find what he has to say startling or thought provoking. For example, he said that what we call the Green Revolution has been ongoing for 3,000 years. "The history of the Green Revolution is like a wave, it comes and goes," he said. He added that green operations in the county are not just about solar power or alternative energy sources they are more about small businesses redesigning themselves and then marketing themselves as green. "Solar, wind and battery technology are very immature," Cooper said, adding we shouldn't expect them to be a major source of jobs at th is time. "Most jobs (right now ) will be in maintenance," he said. "It is not as clear ho w jobs will be created in t he future." In fact, people may be su rprised at how few jobs w ill be created in the beginning Cooper pointed to t he Arcadia solar plant. "It's t he largest plant of its kind in t he country," he said, "but it on ly employs two people." As a natural gas plant, t he The News-Sun would like to remind the readers that the names listed below reflect those who have been charged with a crime, but they are all innocent until proven guilty by a court of law.

The fourth-graders at Woodlawn were visited by local law enforcement and the fire department on Thursday. "Students rotated to different activity stations dealing with fire safety, drug awareness, bicycle safety and law enforcement safety," said Kendra Fout, fourth-grade instructor at Woodlawn. Fout organized the activities to help students gain more awareness and better safety habits. Every 30 minutes the students went from station to station learning all about different ways to be and stay secure. The stations included fire safety activities with Sebring Fire Department Lt. Don Clarke. The fire engine was brought to the school for students to inquire about and enjoy. Officer Wilma Tindell of the Sebring Police Department spoke to students about bicycle safety. Highlands County Sheriff's Office Deputy Wayne Gunn accompanied by his K-9 partner Sarge spoke to students about drug awareness. The search and rescue duo kept the kids interested as Gunn demonstrated ways to stay drug free and safe.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING Called the b iggest sale in recent H ighlands County history, C lerk of Courts Bob G ermaine reported that more t han $6 million traded hands d uring the Tu-Co Peat prope rty auction. Germaine started the sale w ith "buyer beware" and e nded with "going, going g one for $6.11 million." "It is the biggest sale that I h ave seen," Germaine told c ounty commissioners on T uesday. After months of legal hagg ling, the sale was held in a ccordance with a court judgment in favor of Wells Fargo Bank N.A., which foreclosed on its note with Tu-Co Peat and Ram Peat owned by L isa Hudec. Hudec bought the company f rom Raymond and Michael T ubbs for $14 million in c ash and a $2 million note. Wells Fargo Bank held an a dditional note for $9.4 mill ion and more than $2 million i n late fees and interest. The Tubbs'claim in court i s second to the Wells Fargo C laim, according to G ermaine, and after $91,000 i s taken by the state, the r emainder of the funds will g o to Wells Fargo. Germaine insisted that t here was no guarantee of t itle from the Clerk's Office, a nd informed the several d ozen assembled that the T ubbs have filed an appeal f or their interests in the case. Each purchaser had to p lace a 5 percent deposit on t he sale and a cashier's check for the balance within three days of the sale, according to Germaine. Marty Wohl, representing South Sebring Land Development, purchased about 450 acres located near George Boulevard for $205,000. The 300-acre Ram Peat property, its offices and assets as well as the peat mines located around several spots in Highlands County, were purchased by representatives of Harrell's Horticultural Products LLC of Lakeland. Special to the News-SunAVON PARK In observ ation of Fire Prevention M onth in October, Ridge A rea Arc and Aktion Club m embers learned how to p roperly use a fire exting uisher on Oct. 28. Luke Andrews, fire service s pecialist with Highlands C ounty Fire Services, and f irefighter Mike Jolin provide d the training. They first did a training for the Arc cons umers at 1 p.m. and then w orked with the Aktion Club m embers at 2:15 p.m. at A rc's main campus on C ollege Drive. The training was establ ished to empower individua ls with disabilities to be able t o know what to do in case of a fire so they do not panic in the situation. "If you don't think you can put out the fire, get out of the building and call 911," Andrews informed the groups. He emphasized that their safety was top priority. "You can stop, drop and roll if you catch on fire," Arc consumer Bobby Byrd said as he demonstrated the roll on the floor. For several individuals this was the first time they had ever used an extinguisher. They watched a video first and then went outside for a hands-on training with real fire and extinguishers. Andrews showed each person what seal to break, how to pull out the safety pin, aim the hose and squirt the chemical on the fire. Jolin stood by to keep the fire lit in the mobile container. For some it was difficult to break the seal but after several attempts they accomplished the task and put the fire out. "I did it!" Arc consumer Christa Haege proclaimed as she put out the fire. "I know what to do 'cause I have had this training before," Aktion Club member Sharon Carpenter said. "I'm not afraid of the fire," she said as she grabbed the extinguisher, pulled the pin and walked with authority to the flame to put it out. Several were amazed at their ability to extinguish a fire. Some were timid but still gave it a try with the assistance of Andrews. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 3, 2010Page 3A Main Office 2600 U.S. 27 North Sebring, FL 33870 (863) 385-8700Avon Park400 U.S. 27 North Avon Park, FL 33825 (863) 453-6400South Sebring3540 U.S. 27 South Sebring, FL 33870 (863) 386-1900Lake Placid120 U.S. 27 South Lake Placid, FL 33852 (863) 465-2700Downtown Sebring205 West Center Ave. Sebring, FL 33870 (863) 385-7737Sun N Lake6505 U.S. 27 North Sebring, FL 33870 (863) 314-9797 Were Celebrating our 25thAnniversary!

We are not debating that i ssue here. We are, however, pointing o ut to the politicians on the c ounty commission that the m ajor argument against A mendment 4 had to do with t he technical complexities of l and use issues, and the need f or trained experts to work t hem through. The whole idea is to keep t he process professional, and n ot put it into the hands of peop le who don't understand the r amifications and possible consequences of extremely complex proposals. County commissioners may be intelligent and well-educated, but that does not necessarily make them knowledgeable in land use. In fact, because they are politicians, commissioners are often drawn to the short-term, easier answer. "Jobs," whispers a developer, and the politician listens harder. "You'll regret this," yells a citizen, and the politician shrugs, especially if he or she is term-limited. Specialists have deemed the three developments Blue Head Ranch, Lake Placid Groves, and the Lake Placid Vision Overlay to not be in the county's, or Florida's, best interest. We agree with that finding. Too many unanswered questions exist regarding available water, urban sprawl in a sensitive environmental area, and the current surplus of available housing. Fact, land is a finite resource. Fact, construction jobs are temporary. We believe it is time to protect what wild lands we have left. We also believe it is time to stop using expansion as a business model. We need to create a broader economy and a more varied job base. The same old, same old, is not going to provide new opportunities or solve long standing problems. County commissioners need to put aside bias and personal relationships and listen instead to the wishes of their constituents, and to the advice of people who are trained and experienced. Heaven knows there are more than enough failed subdivisions throughout Highlands County to make any openminded individual think twice about building more. Too often in the past, politicians rationalized their decisions, siding with developers, rubber stamping projects that were regretted later. We have entered a new age that requires a new way of doing things. If the professionals a re telling us these developmen ts do not conform to state statu te and are warning us about t he problems, don't wink at t he developer suck it up and do the right thing. Do not appeal the DCA 's findings.

W hether or not Amendment 4 was rejected by voters Tuesday, the county's plans to appeal the Department of Community Affairs finding that three large developments c urrently planned for the southern part of the county are out of c ompliance with state statutes is a perfect example of why enough p rivate citizens were angry enough to get the amendment r equiring voter approval for changes in the comprehensive land u se plan on the ballot in the first place. I feel guilty about it, if you want to know the truth. Patrice Hill, chief economic correspondent for The Washington Times, reports that while the down economy has caused the rest of America to struggle, Washington, D.C., is flourishing. While America has lost 8.3 million jobs since the beginning of the recession, the Washington metropolitan region has lost only 35,000. And by August 2009, not only were all 35,000 of those jobs recovered, but, says The Washington Post, 20,000 new ones were added and thousands more have been added since. Thus, while the jobless rate hovers near 10 percent nationally, it's around 6 percent in D.C., the lowest unemployment rate among America's 49 largest metro areas. When times are good in America, they're better in Washington, where coffers are flush with tax revenue. When times are bad in America, they're better yet in Washington, where policymakers borrow and pass out billions. That's why, says the Brookings Institution, D.C. has grown nearly 7 percent since the recession began in December 2007. It's also why people and organizations are flocking to the region. Its population has been growing by about 100,000 a year. Most Fortune 500 companies have a presence here, happily snapping up large government contracts of every kind. Federal contracts, says Hill, pump $84 billion into the D.C. economy every year revenue that produces lots of good-paying private-sector jobs, too. Which is why I accepted a temporary assignment in the region. In addition to writing this column, I contract out my writing and communication services. Unlike much of the rest of America, where work has slowed, business is brisk in D.C. Shortly after I arrived, I was contacted by a headhunter to see if I was interested in another assignmen t with a large quasigovernment agenc y that is receiving b illions every month in taxpayer-funded bailout dough. I told the headhunter I could nev er work for such an organization, but was curious about the salary. When he told me I nearly fell off my wallet. It was an absurd amount of money. But then, a lot of things are absurd in the "land of milk and honey." There are lots of people in D.C. who work in government jobs, who never have to worry about layoffs. The salaries are high not the low salaries that governmen t workers used to be paid and the benefits are fabulous. I have friends holding such government jobs. The y are good, intelligent people and many of their jobs military, legal and so on are important jobs. Still, I can understand many Americans'frustratio n with Washington. It is sheltered from the hard realitie s that most Americans face every day. If a private-sector emplo yee in middle America isn't producing tangible value, particularly in a down econ omy, he or she will be let g o. In the end, our nation's capital is ultimately a reflec tion of our nation's health. If America doesn't resume healthy growth, even Washington, D.C. will even tually suffer. But for the moment, things are dandy in D.C. Employment is high. The restaurants are full. Few have a worry in the world. For the moment, I'm riding out the down economy while enjoying a nice income income made po ssible, in part, by taxpayer funding and excessive government spending. But, as I said, at least I feel guilty about it.

E-mail Tom at Purcell@caglecartoons.com. Recession? Not in Washington D.C. Guest Column Tom Purcell Government is not the problem E ditor: Doubling government is not the solut ion to higher taxes. It is the problem. Tax fraud and home foreclosures, all s tates have given small state entities t he power to assess or tax. This is a n ational scam. The Attorney General a nd the President of these United States s hould require an investigation as to w hat part this plays in the huge forec losures in our nation. All wars have b een over property rights. America sepa rated from English rule over taxation. M any lives were lost on both sides. W ho gains by foreclosure? The A merican banking system is the only w inner. They can sell the property over a nd over in a short period of time. It is o ne of the most corrupt practices that c an cause serious civil unrest in our n ation. The American people ask relief from t his corrupt policy of given the power t o assess or tax to small state entities, c reating double taxation to small vill ages where the county government is s ufficient. There is a need to abolish duplicati ng of government. The cost is too g reat. The county form of government h as worked for many years and is very g ood at its job of serving the people. S tate legislation giving powers of doub le taxation to small state entities is f raud. The duplicating of service to the p eople is not needed. It creates added c ost and doubles the cost of governm ent. Improvement districts should be a bolished in the state of Florida. The r etired veterans of the state of Florida s hould demand its demise as it creates d ouble taxation and fraud on home and p roperty owners and leads to home f oreclosure nationwide. Government is not the answer to our f inancial problems, "it is the problem." Billie E. Jewett SebringProjects failed on their own merits E ditor: County planning staff, commissione rs and their consultant, Central Florida R egional Planning Council, should take p ause at the determination by the F lorida Department of Community A ffairs (DCA) that Blue Head Ranch, L ake Placid Groves and the Lake P lacid town expansion violate Florida l aw and are inconsistent with the Florida Comprehensive Land Plan. Many taxpayer dollars went out the window trying to accommodate these "pie in the sky" projects, that collectively have enough homes and commercial development to just about provide a new house for every resident now existing in Highlands County. Developers sought approval to build homes for at least 90,000 people, when the county population is only 98,000. Shouldn't these numbers alone have raised a red flag to our decision-makers, legal counsel and consultants that something was amiss? No, it took an outside agency to see the reality of the disaster looming ahead if these projects were approved. There is a push to keep these projects alive, perhaps because there are such big names behind them: J.D. Alexander and Lykes Brothers, to name just a few. Or perhaps the county will persist because they have already invested so much money trying to accommodate them. There may be finger pointing, blaming and politicking about it. The truth is, these projects failed on their merits, and the county commissioners should be grateful they were stopped. Real solutions are needed for the county's real problems, including urban deterioration and abandonment and how to develop the existing backlog of available lots, estimated to be between 57,000 and 63,000. Two of the rejected projects were "start over" cities that would worsen these problems, and ruin what little natural habitat andfunctioning ecological systems that still exist. One letter from the South Florida Water Management District said that building Blue Head Ranch would lower the lake levels in Highlands County.This got overlooked as developers kept changing their plans to make them appear to have less impact. The county should not send good money after bad. The county commissioners should admit their error, abandon these projects and take the DCA recommendation to "rescind the amendments." The people of Highlands County should support the DCAas a fully functioning watchdog against developer greed and destruction in our counties. Paula House Lake PlacidTeen could have walked awayEditor: To the writer of outrage at Highlands County Republican Party, I think the "key" word in your letter "They went up to their booth!" So what was expected? Their views, what else. Maybe you should not leave her by herself and be at her side at all times. Since it is apparent this upsets you, she should learn what she did not learn at home or in school. Have you not taught her to just walk away? I am neither Republican nor Democrat ... just a voter and my four children have to make up their mind and to seek and ask questions. If she learned to be Democrat then the visit was worth while don't you think? Or was this just a way to vent your party views?

OBITUARIES COMMUNITYBRIEFS Associated PressLONDON Oil company BPPLC shied away from spearheading any industry rush back into the Gulf of Mexico as it revealed Tuesday that the cost of its devastating oil spill has jumped to $40 billion taking the shine off a return to profit in the third quarter. Chief Executive Bob Dudley was forced to raise the likely cost of the worst accidental spill in U.S. history by $7.7 billion because of delays to the final capping of the busted Macondo well. That dragged down third quarter net income by more than 60 percent compared to a year ago, to $1.79 billion from $5.3 billion. But underlying replacement cost profit a key industry benchmark that excludes the one-time cost of the spill came in at $5.5 billion, beating analysts'forecasts of $4.6 billion. Several residents along the Gulf Coast were happy to see BPturning a profit, keeping the company afloat so it can live up to its prom ise to compensate tho se affected by the spill. "I don't think it's to an yone's advantage to see B P go broke or go out of bus iness," said Byron Encalad e, the president of t he Louisiana Oysterm en Association whose oyst er beds are all dead or dyin g. "We want them to stay rig ht and keep making money. A ll we want is for them to ta ke care of the people who ha ve been affected and the ir livelihoods destroyed."

Associated PressCAPE CANAVERAL N ASAcelebrated 10 years of c ontinuous human presence at t he International Space S tation on Tuesday while r eadying shuttle Discovery f or one last trip into orbit. Liftoff is set for today at 3 :52 p.m. Discovery is bound for the s pace station, currently home t o six U.S. astronauts and R ussian cosmonauts who f ielded calls of congratulat ions on this special annivers ary. "You all are incredible a mbassadors," NASA A dministrator Charles Bolden J r. said in a broadcast hookup f rom Kennedy Space Center. "What you do is actually a modern-day 'Star Trek."' On Nov. 2, 2000, three men moved into the young space station. People from around the world have been there ever since, living and working more than 200 miles above Earth. On its 39th and final voyage, Discovery will bring six visitors as well as thousands of pounds of supplies, including a humanoid robot. Forecasters said there is a 70 percent chance that the weather will cooperate for the 3:52 p.m. liftoff. NASAtest director Steve Payne said there is a lot of excitement as the countdown enters its final stages. Shuttle workers "put their heart and soul into this one," with the intent of making this last voyage of Discovery as good as the 38 that have come before, he said. "She's now poised to take to the skies tomorrow, and when she goes, she's going to take a little bit of every one of us with her," Payne told reporters. Discovery has carried 180 individuals into orbit over its 26-year career, and logged nearly 150 million miles and more than 5,600 orbits of Earth. It is NASA's oldest surviving shuttle and fleet leader, and will be the first to be prepared for museum retirement.

Steve Lindsey walk in front of launch pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center. The final launch for Discovery is scheduled for today. On launch eve, NASA marks 10 years at space station f acility had a much larger staff. Cooper also pointed to the new smart elect rical meters which are being phased into the s ystem again, while more accurate and e fficient, the smart meters will cost jobs in t he beginning. Time will make the difference. Cooper said t here is a huge market for alternative energy sources, and a growing need for research, not just in the creation of new fuels, but in learning how to make buildings more efficient. That means that there will be opportunities in the field of data management, as well as many options unknown at this time. The symposium is designed to answer these and other questions about future opportunities and challenges. Continued from page 2A SFCC hosting green business institute

Continued from page 1A d ecision was not based on t he need for technical advice o n a public safety director, b ut on the city's need to fill t hat position. "(The public safety direct or) is a complicated issue. It h as been suggested that you c ould save over $100,00 per y ear, and I can tell you that t here could be substantial s avings over time. What we d o not have is any kind of i dea what our obligations are t o pensions "The elevation of Cmdr. R owan to chief does not c hange the dollars," Behrens s aid. "I have no reservation o n choosing Mike Rowan as y our police chief. The fact t hat Cmdr. Rowan has been e levated does not change in m y mind the need to look at c ombining the departments i nto public safety. Those are t wo separate issues." "I think we need to determ ine if we are going to have a public safety officer now. It a ppears to me that you have a lready made that decision f or us. This is nothing a gainst Cmdr. Rowan," Gray s aid. "Please Cmdr. Rowan, d on't walk out and don't take i t personal. I feel that you a lready made the decision, but you made just half of it. You have made half the decision but not the other half." "You need a sworn officer to communicate with the other agencies like the FBI or the FDLE. Choosing the police chief is my function is my responsibility, and choosing a public safety director is something you all decide. That's a policy decision. But choosing a police chief I think falls in the purview of the city manager," Behrens said. "That's not what I say, that's what your charter says and your city attorney says. That's my understanding my job function," Behrens said. "My concern is this in our budget. Do we have the money to pay Cmdr. Rowan?" Gray asked. Behrens pointed out the council already voted to approve both Rowan's salary as a police chief. "You've only been here 29 days. You really have not had the time to know what we want and what the citizens of Avon Park want," Gray said. "I think that before you make any appointments, you should see what the city wants. That's what we hired you for. I think the city manager should evaluate every situation before he makes an appointment. Are you even out of your probation period yet?" "No ma'am, I am on probation for six months," Behrens responded. "Until that time frame, I don't think any more appointments should be made," Gray said.

The two-hour debate conc luded with a motion from c ommissioner Barbara S tewart, who refused to add i n the motion that the funds w ould not be used for relig ious purposes, despite r equests from Clerk of Courts B ob Germaine. Germaine insisted that it w as against the law for him o r the commissioners to pay a ny funds not approved by l aw. "I have a hospital board t hat has been told by their a ttorney that this is illegal, a nd I have a board of county c ommissioners who have an a ttorney who is telling them t his is illegal. The right thing t o do is to get an opinion. I u nderstand that nobody w ants to go to court to get an o pinion," Germaine said. "I c annot not go against the a dvice of my attorney witho ut the affidavits stating that t hey are not using the funds f or religious purposes." Germaine also pointed out that the board and the clerk were personally responsible if found guilty of making those illegal payments. Diana Furr, director of Samaritan's touch, informed the commission and the clerk that her organization already has those provisions in their grant agreements, and would be happy to provide whatever the clerk needed. "We could be happy to give you an affidavit that these funds would not be used for religious activities," Furr said. But Macbeth made it clear that the debate was not how the money was spent, but who was getting the taxpayer funds. "I hate to rain on this parade.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Sebring Youth Football had been missing an important aspect of their program. "Cheerleading," believe it or not it makes a difference to the players, coaches and spectators. Cheerleaders show spirit and motivate the crowd. Sebring Youth Football has six teams this year, which is quite an accomplishment considering it has not had Cheer in four years. Each team has cheered at 10 games this season and are headed to their most important performance of the year. Each squad will attend MFFCC Cheer-Off 2010 on Saturday, Nov. 6 at the Lakeland Civic Center. Here is a little information about each of the squads. The Flag Bluestreaks, under the guidance of head coach Erin Leone and assistant Jennifer McClelland, has five team members. This team has come together to work hard at all their games and have been really dedicated to learning their competition routine. The Flag Thunderbolts, under head coach Jamie Solis and assistant Constance Hawthorne, has 10 tea m members. There are very high expe ctations for this young team they have worked well toget her as a squad, they ha ve learned many new cheers an d are ready to show their stuff at competition.

www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 3, 2010Page 3B By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week TALLADEGA, Ala. „ Five years ago, the talk of NASCAR was the entry of new owners with new money. Most of them had little racing knowledge or experience. Most of them are now gone, and George Gillett, who swung into NASCAR by buying out Ray Evernham and acquiring rights to Richard Petty (hence the term Richard Petty Motorsports), seems unlikely to hang around much longer, given his financial problems. At the end of the day,Ž as many drivers are fond of saying, the only outsider who has enjoyed much success in the past 20 years is Joe Gibbs. Naturally, Jeff Burton had some insight to offer. If I had a lot of money, and I went and bought an NFL team, Im not so sure I would know how to do that,Ž he said. I might think I know how, and I might be a great fan of the sport and I might think I know what the Panthers (for instance) need to do to make a roster change to be a better team but, the reality of it is, who knows? The reason that Richard Childress and Jack Roush and Joe Gibbs and Rick Hendrick and those guys have been here for a long time is because they know the sport. Joe did it probably quicker than the rest of them as far as his motorsports experience. He did a great job of hiring the right people to fill the void that he had in it. A great leader, a great manager, a great owner of something ƒ that doesnt mean hes going to be great at everything.Ž Hoax „ Robby Gordon circulated a rumor that he was stopped for speeding on I-77. The hook was that he was supposedly driving a Sprint Cup car (an illegal oneŽ). This, of course, was a ruse designed to allow him to publicize Speed Energy Drink, which is produced, according to sponsor representative Steve Nichols, with a commitment to Speed, energy and relentless determination.Ž And the assumption, often correct, that the media will flock to stupid stuff. Rest in peace „ Jim Hunter, who was involved in motorsports for parts of six decades, died on Friday night in Daytona Beach, Fla., at age 71, after fighting cancer for a year. The NASCAR vice president was also a sportswriter, author, publicist and track president. Hunter played football and baseball at the University of South Carolina. NASCAR President Mike Helton called Hunter a uniquely talented man (who) cannot be replaced.Ž Trevor, not Bill „ Nineteen-year-old Trevor Bayne will get the nod for his Sprint Cup debut at Texas on Nov. 7, taking the wheel of the Wood Brothers No. 21 Ford in Bill Elliotts stead.

Last week: Clint Bowyer won for the second time in the Chase, capturing the Amp Energy Juice 500 in a side-by-side finish that wasnt at the finish line.

Last week: Kyle Busch made a breathtaking, and controversial, move on the final lap to win at Talladega Superspeedway. Runner-up Aric Almirola suggested that Busch be stripped of the victory for putting two wheels below the tracks forbidden yellow line as he made the pass. The margin? An incredible .002 of a second.CAMPING WORLD TRUCK By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week TALLADEGA, Ala. „ Supposedly, NASCAR officials are contemplating an offseason change in the Chase for the Sprint Cup that would provide some sort of elimination process. Based on the current Chase, it sort of takes care of itself. Seven races into the 10-race Chase, the crowd at the top is noteworthy. Never have three drivers been locked in such a tight battle, with 38 points separating Jimmie Johnson, Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick. But, with the great wild cardŽ (Talladega) behind them, the race has been effectively limited to those three. Fourtime champion Jeff Gordon is fourth but trails Johnson by 207 points. Clint Bowyer, the winner of the Amp Energy Juice 500 „ and only driver to win twice during the Chase to date „ brings up the rear, 367 points behind Johnson. Gordon, Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart, Matt Kenseth, Kurt Busch, Jeff Burton, Greg Biffle and Bowyer are all far off the pace entering the remaining races in Fort Worth, Texas; Avondale, Ariz.; and Homestead,Fla. Johnson has won the past four Sprint Cup championships, an unprecedented achievement, but in each of his past titles, Johnson took a decent cushion into the final race. He doesnt expect that to be the case this time. The way its gone, I better be prepared for (winning the Ford 400 at) Homestead-Miami Speedway,Ž said Johnson. If Im not, then we arent doing our jobs. The last couple years down there, weve made sure that we had pace in our car and speed. Last year we won the pole, finishing sixth (actually fifth). Ran good, had a strong night being conservative. I feel like coming to Homestead this time, we need to race for this thing, which Im pretty confident were going to have to do.Ž At Talladega, Harvick finished second, Johnson seventh and Hamlin ninth. Harvick has the most top-10 finishes (23). Johnson and Harvick each have 15 topfive finishes. Hamlin has the most victories (seven), one more than Johnson. After Talladega, where Hamlin managed to come back from being a lap down to the leaders, he said, It looked like everyone broke even. I lost a little to the 48 (Johnson), lost to the 29 (Harvick), but still it wasnt anything detrimental.ŽBig Moneys not the same “ve years later in NASCARNot As Easy This Time?V E R S U S 2010 STANDINGSSprint Cup Pts.1.

Jason White 802 Whos hot: Clint Bowyer is last in the Chase ƒ and the only driver to win two of its races. ... Jimmie Johnson has “ nished seventh or better in the past six races. Whos not: A crash relegated Jeff Burton to 10th place in the standings. ... Martin Truex Jr. picked up two positions in the standings, rising from 22nd to 20th. Gosh forbid that a race be run at Talladega without at least one car skidding upside down. A.J. Allmendingers Ford did the honorsŽ in a multicar crash that effectively froze the “eldŽ and ended the Amp Energy Juice 500. Clint Bowyer won the race by judgment call. NASCAR of“cials said the nose on his Chevy was ahead of teammate Kevin Harvicks when the yellow ”ag waved after both drivers had already taken the white ”ag. Harvicks second-place “nish allowed him to gain ground on points leader Jimmie Johnson, who “ nished seventh, and Denny Hamlin, who “ nished ninth. Johnsons edge is now 14 points over Hamlin and 38 over Harvick, with three races remaining. Astonishingly, Bowyer, who brings up the rear, is the only driver who has won more than once so far in the 10-race Chase. As a practical matter, the championship comes down to the three top drivers. No one else is within 200 points. Richard Petty Motorsports continues to be hounded by “ nancial problems, but the team plans to enter all four of its Fords „ for Aric Almirola, Allmendinger, Paul Menard and Elliott Sadler „ at Texas. The Talladega race featured 26 leaders and 87 lead changes. Dale Earnhardt Jr. led the most laps, 24, but wound up placing 39th. NASCAR of“cials listed the Talladega attendance at 110,000. In 2003, it was 170,000. From 1972 through 2004, Talladega followed Martinsville each spring. It didnt occur again until this year. The only driver ever to follow up a victory at NASCARs shortest track with a win at the longest track was David Pearson, who pulled it off in 1973. Juan Pablo Montoyas Talladega pole was his third of the season. He “nished third behind Bowyer and Harvick. Harvick BurtonEarnhardt took the blame for a crash that eliminated him and Burton, but Burton took no offense. After emerging from the infield hospital, where he and Earnhardt talked, Burton said, He just said he didnt get lined up and just caught me in the quarter panel wrong. When you push like that and draft like that, its going to happen. I did it all day long. I had a few times when I thought I was going turn somebody around and didnt. Its just the nature of the beast. He did not do anything wrong. Im not mad about it.Ž NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: Perhaps the victim of another crash, A.J. Allmendinger, said it best: I hate this place. I always have and always will.ŽJEFF BURTON VS.

In Zone D, it starts T hanksgiving Day (Nov. 2 5) and lasts four days until N ov. 28. Two weeks later, the seas on reopens on Dec. 11 and r uns through Feb. 20.

On private lands, the d aily bag limit for deer is t wo. On private lands, hunters can take wild hogs year round with no bag or size limits. On most but not all WMAs, there's also no bag or size limit on wild hogs, and hunters can take them during any hunting season except spring turkey. Check the WMA brochure to be certain. The highly anticipated antlerless deer season, often called "doe week," is Nov. 20-26 (Thanksgiving week) in zones Aand C, and Dec. 26 Jan. 1 (Christmas week) in zones B and D.

By JENNIFER FORKER For The Associated PressSharon Bowers has an i ngenious trick for distracti ng children from their postH alloween sugary stashes: U se the candy as construct ion materials in crafts. "How can a responsible p arent let a kid enjoy candy w ithout letting him stuff h imself with junk?" asks B owers in her well-timed b ook, "Candy Construction" ( Storey Publishing, 2010). The trick is not to EATit b ut to make something W ITH it." Bowers'"Candy C onstruction" is a little book w ith big ideas, from a pirate s hip whose hull is carved f rom a block of Rice Krispie t reats to castles, a train and w earable jewelry. Her race c ar incorporates a Snickers b ar, Reese's Peanut Butter C ups, Hershey's chocolate b ars and sour candy strips. Bowers, who lives in the H ell's Kitchen neighborhood o f Manhattan, is a literary a gent and the author of last y ear's "Ghoulish Goodies" ( Storey Publishing, 2009). W hile testing recipes for that b ook, she hit upon ideas for t his one, which is geared m ore toward entertaining k ids. Her own two boys are 4 and 7. "The kids really liked the p rojects (in Ghoulish G oodies') where they didn't h ave to wait for me to bake s omething first," Bowers s ays. "They loved the buildi ng." She noticed that her boys, w hile in the creative throes o f construction, weren't eati ng much of the candy. "'Wow,'I thought, they're actually making M artian aliens and not putt ing marshmallows in their m ouths,"'Bowers says. Of course, it helps that B owers lays some ground r ules for her little construct ion workers. She lists them i n her book: No. 1: "Absolutely no eati ng while building. What c onstruction worker snacks o n the job?" No. 2: "One item can be c hosen from among the supp lies, or one piece of what w as built, but it's to be eaten a fter cleanup." No. 3: "Candy construct ion workers always brush t heir teeth after work." Her boys obey the rules, B owers has found, because c reativity trumps sugar. The k ids rarely want to devour t heir finished creations. "I had a castle in my k itchen for a month because I couldn't bear to throw it a way," Bowers confesses. To stock one's own candy construction site, Bowers recommends having these building blocks on hand: Oreos, including the minis, pretzel sticks, tubs of storebought frosting (for "mortar"), and licorice string (it ties stuff together). She recommends visiting dollar stores with some regularity to pick up unusual candy on the cheap. Bowers is committed to her confectionery craft: She keeps a large plastic bin full of store-bought candy for her children's construction time. She recommends that other adults use her project ideas to get kids'own creativity churning. "When I let go and let (the boys) do it their own way, the payoff is really lovely time you can spend with your kids, even older kids, even teenagers," Bowers says. "That has been really nice." Most of the projects in her book take less than an hour, says Bowers, and they're not as messy as adults may think. The Toy Car, adapted from "Candy Construction" Bowers suggests novice candy construction workers start with this easy, fast project. Supplies: Miniature Snickers or other miniature chunky candy bar Store-bought tub of frosting (or make your own) 4 mini sandwich cookies, such as Mini Oreos 1 mini Tootsie Roll 1 peanut M&M Strip candy, such as Sour Strips or Sour Power Belts (you can substitute strip bubble gum) Red decorating gel, optional Assembly 1. To make the body of the car: Use a sharp paring knife to carve a U-shaped curve out of the top of the candy bar for a cockpit. 2. Glue four mini-sandwich-cookie wheels onto the sides with frosting. 3. Glue a mini Tootsie Roll across the back behind the cockpit. 4. If you like, cover the white filling of the cookie tires with decorating gel. 5. To make the driver, da b a bit of icing on top of a peanut M&M and push it into the cockpit. 6. Drape a slice of sour strip across the front to ma ke a hood, using a thin slick o f icing to glue it down. If yo u like, cut a narrow strip of a different color and add a contrasting racing stripe down the middle. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 3, 2010Page 7B Custom Concrete Landscape Curbs Landscape Installation Sod Renovation Water Features Waterfalls Ponds385.0404 385.0404Custom Concrete Landscape Curbs Landscape Installation Sod Renovation Water Features Waterfalls PondsSUPPORTYOUR 385-3497HIGHLANDS COUNTYS OLDEST ESTABLISHED HEARING AID OFFICE130 S.

The members welcomed Maxine Floyd, a guest. Chairman Nina Seibold led the club in the discussion of planting a Crepe Myrtle tree on the grounds of the Resurrection Lutheran Church in memory of Elise Sperry. The club plans to place the Christmas decorations on the Avon Park Mall in November prior to the Christmas parade. Teri Semper announced the new crop jumbo pecans are expected to arrive next week. The price will remain $8 for one-pound bags of select jumbo halves. Interested buyers may contact any garden club member or call Semper at 453-4361 to place an order. All club members will have pecans to sell. Seibold introduced a noxious weed, new to members, found in her garden. It is the Florida Betony, or Rattlesnake weed (Stachys Floridana). It is a perennial weed primarily of turf grass and lawn having large segmented underground tubers resembling a rattlesnake tail. Florida Betony may also occur as a weed of landscapes, nursery stock and ornamentals. It is found throughout the southeastern United States and has spread northward from Florida since the 1940s although it is still somewhat rare in Virginia. Identifying characteristics are lance-shaped leaves with scalloped margins, stems that are square in the cross sections and the rattlesnake tubers. The Florida Betony spreads as the nut grass and is difficult to eradicate. Teri Semper drew the lucky number for a lovely Begonia door prize. The Thursday, Nov. 11 meeting will be with Kim Pascoe.

The first phase of the $100 million Facebook-funded makeover of Newark's school system will reach far beyond classrooms and into living rooms. Over the next eight weeks, city residents will be targeted with phone calls, home visits and focus groups as part of an effort to get parents more involved in the educational process and to find out what is working and what isn't in the city's troubled school system. "We don't want to give anyone any excuses for not participating in this process," Shavar Jeffries, president of the Newark Public Schools Advisory Board, said Monday at a news conference. "There are no excuses." Mayor Cory Booker and city officials made the announcements Monday at the kickoff of the Partnership for Educatio n in Newark, whose hea dquarters are housed in a converted furniture store in the city's heart. Facebook founder Ma rk Zuckerberg in Septemb er pledged $100 million to improve Newark's schoo ls, which have been plagu ed by low test scores, hig h dropout rates and crum bling buildings. The distri ct already spends near ly $24,000 a year mo re than twice the nation al average on each of its 40,000 students. Gov. Chris Christie h as said he will give Booker a major role in overseein g significant changes in t he district, which the sta te took over in 1995. The outreach effort w ill cost about $1 millio n, Booker said. In addition to individual solicitations, t he partnership will hold mee tings at cafes and churche s, place billboards around t he city, and put ads on ci ty buses.

DearAbby: Amale c ousin sent me an invitation t o his wedding. I have met h is fiancee a few times at f amily reunions and wedd ings, and she seems very s weet. The problem is my c ousin sexually abused me f or many years when I was y ounger. I have no desire to a ttend his wedding. Am I obligated to send a c ard or a gift? I don't want h is fiancee to think I don't l ike her, but it makes me s ick to think of celebrating h is marriage after what he d id. What do I say when o ther family members ask w hy I'm not going? Am I o bligated to tell her what he d id? Needs to Know in Texas DearNeeds to Know: A y oung man who sexually a buses someone "for years" i s a predator. And while the n ews may not be greeted w armly, you should say s omething to your cousin's f iancee before she marries h im. You could benefit from t alking to a counselor who s pecializes in sexual abuse t o make sure the effects of w hat happened to you don't a ffect you in the future. The c ounselor can help you decide what to do from there. If you don't attend the wedding, you are under no obligation to send a gift or a card. DearAbby: I could never figure out why "Margaret," my wife of 20 years, married me. After our wedding she tried to give me an image makeover. She'd buy me clothes I left hanging in the closet. She'd contradict and correct me in public. In general, she'd find fault with almost everything I did. She put me down often, and if I reacted, she would either claim it wasn't what she meant to say or tell me, "You do it, too." I finally gave up and left her. Margaret has an excellent reputation, so people try to pry into why I left her. When I tell them I won't badmouth her, they tell me she says plenty about me. My response is, "Then you know all there is to know, don't you?" Two women close to my age, plus one college-age girl, are trying to pursue me. I'm afraid if I don't leave this area, Margaret will allege that I left her for one of them. Your thoughts, please. Keeping Mum in Cleveland DearKeeping Mum: You didn't mention how long ago your marriage ended or whether your divorce is final. But regardless, aren't you tired of worrying about what your ex is saying about you? The marriage is over kaput! Amove isn't necessary. An effective way to ensure that no one spreads a rumor that you left Margaret for one woman would be to spend time being seen dating all of them. DearAbby: My husband and I have been together for two years, and he still doesn't know my mother's last name (it's different from my maiden name), nor does he know the names of all of my siblings. He doesn't think it's a big deal. What is your opinion? Name Game in Knoxville, Tenn. DearName Game: Either your husband is not much of a family man or he's not detail-oriented. Remembering someone's name is a sign of respect, and it appears your husband of two years has little of that for your family.

Sure you can buy these at the grocery store but it is fun and easy to make your own (not to mention a lot cheaper). Let the kids join you and let their creativity run wild. Now let's gather up some of your favorite herbs and spices and get creative. To create flavored vinegar, you will a bottle of white distilled vinegar. White is the most preferred when making flavored vinegars because it is the least expensive and is very bland. Since it is bland it will not bring its own unique taste to the recipe other than the taste of vinegar. Put the vinegar in a clean, well sterilized glass container. You can find unique glass bottles at dollar stores, large discount stores, and even thrift stores. Add the herbs and spices of your choice to the vinegar. Popular choices include rosemary, oregano, thyme, basil, sage, and cilantro. Colorful herbs will tint your vinegar while also giving it a different flavor. Once you have completed the mixture, the flavored vinegar should be allowed to steep for at least one week. Shake the container each day to allow the herbs to fully mix with the vinegar. While refrigeration is not necessary, most people prefer to store their vinegar in the refrigerator until it is ready to use. After it has steeped for a week give it a test. Simply sprinkle the flavored vinegar on your next dish to taste your creation. Most prefer no more than a teaspoon on their food, but the amount is up to you. Oh, and don't forget, these make great gifts for neighbors, teachers, and even the postman during the holidays. If you're giving your flavored vinegars as gifts why not include your favorite recipes from SavingDinner.com printed on fun papers and tied to the bottle? Here's a few suggestions to get your creative juices flowing: Chives, garlic, peppercorns, and cloves to be use d as salad dressing for potato salad, coleslaw, or pasta. Red chilies, garlic, and jalapeno peppers used in pinto beans, chili, salsa, an d other Mexican cooking. Cranberries, honey, cloves, and cinnamon stick s used on chicken, turkey, an d salads. Dill and vinegar is great on potato salad, coleslaw, greens, fresh peas, and beet s. Rosemary, with or witho ut garlic, works well with whi te beans, soups, salad dressings, and pork. Apples, sage, and garlic goes great with sauerkraut, pork, sausage, and poultry stuffing. Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of 'Body Clutter' and the Saving Dinner series.

Here is an opportunity for those who have ever wished to have such an Eden outside their own door. Betty Podmore, an experienced and avid butterfly garden gardener, is joining with two other enthusiasts to provide a butterfly garden tour Nov. 9 for those who want to start a garden themselves, or who simply want to learn more, or who would enjoy a few hours outdoors surrounded by natural beauty. The emphasis will be on identifying the different plants that attract butterflies, as well as the wide variety of butterflies a well thought out garden can attract. A chance to dance with the butterflies Butterfly tour set for Nov. 9 Contrary to advice from attorneyBy ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK Commissioners voted 3-0 to approve two grant agreements for over $123,000 between the Highlands County Hospital District and Samaritans Touch, despite the legal advice from the County Attorney Ross Macbeth and several other attorneys. Commissioners Jeff Carlson was absent because of family obligations and Commissioner Edgar Stokes was not present because of his duties during election day as the commissions representative to the canvassing board. The discussion centered around recent court case that ruled that taxpayer money could not be given to religious organizations, and Samaritans Touch has clearly stated that it is religionbased, according to Macbeth. We have an organization that is primarily dedicated to providing medical care to the community. They have a Christian faith component to that that is part of the service. It is being minimized by the current statements, but I have not been provided with anything that indicates that those kind of services are not being provided, Macbeth said.

by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK South Florida Community College is holding a Green Energy Day Institute from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at the University Center Auditorium. The event is open to the public, free and refreshments will be served. Charlotte Pressler, coordinator of the honors program and service learning, said, We hope very much that members of the general public will be willing to attend. (They) can learn about innovative research and businesses that will move this area past boom-and-bust cycles and low-wage, low-skill jobs and into a green, sound, sustainable and prosperous future. Dan Murphy, director of Highlands County Economic Commission, is scheduled to present an historical context, reviewing Highlands Countys economy past and present. John Alleyne, director of the Highlands County Extension Office, is scheduled to present a report on bio-fuel research and industries in the county. Kevin Cooper, director of the Indian River State College Banner Center, is scheduled to present an overview of the Green Revolution, including present challenges and successes, as well as future opportunities. In a telephone interview, Cooper said some people will find what he has to say startling or thought provoking. For example, he said that what we call the Green Revolution has been ongoing for 3,000 years. The history of the Green Revolution is like a wave, it comes and goes, he said. He added that green operations in the county are not just about solar power or alternative energy sources they are more about small businesses redesigning themselves and then marketing themselves as green. Solar, wind and battery technology are very immature, Cooper said, adding we shouldnt expect them to be a major source of jobs at th is time. Most jobs (right now ) will be in maintenance, he said. It is not as clear ho w jobs will be created in t he future. In fact, people may be su rprised at how few jobs w ill be created in the beginning Cooper pointed to t he Arcadia solar plant. Its t he largest plant of its kind in t he country, he said, but it on ly employs two people.

The fourth-graders at Woodlawn were visited by local law enforcement and the fire department on Thursday. Students rotated to different activity stations dealing with fire safety, drug awareness, bicycle safety and law enforcement safety, said Kendra Fout, fourth-grade instructor at Woodlawn. Fout organized the activities to help students gain more awareness and better safety habits. Every 30 minutes the students went from station to station learning all about different ways to be and stay secure. The stations included fire safety activities with Sebring Fire Department Lt. Don Clarke. The fire engine was brought to the school for students to inquire about and enjoy. Officer Wilma Tindell of the Sebring Police Department spoke to students about bicycle safety. Highlands County Sheriffs Office Deputy Wayne Gunn accompanied by his K-9 partner Sarge spoke to students about drug awareness. The search and rescue duo kept the kids interested as Gunn demonstrated ways to stay drug free and safe.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING Called the b iggest sale in recent H ighlands County history, C lerk of Courts Bob G ermaine reported that more t han $6 million traded hands d uring the Tu-Co Peat prope rty auction. Germaine started the sale w ith buyer beware and e nded with going, going g one for $6.11 million. It is the biggest sale that I h ave seen, Germaine told c ounty commissioners on T uesday. After months of legal hagg ling, the sale was held in a ccordance with a court judgment in favor of Wells Fargo Bank N.A., which foreclosed on its note with Tu-Co Peat and Ram Peat owned by L isa Hudec. Hudec bought the company f rom Raymond and Michael T ubbs for $14 million in c ash and a $2 million note. Wells Fargo Bank held an a dditional note for $9.4 mill ion and more than $2 million i n late fees and interest. The Tubbsclaim in court i s second to the Wells Fargo C laim, according to G ermaine, and after $91,000 i s taken by the state, the r emainder of the funds will g o to Wells Fargo. Germaine insisted that t here was no guarantee of t itle from the Clerks Office, a nd informed the several d ozen assembled that the T ubbs have filed an appeal f or their interests in the case. Each purchaser had to p lace a 5 percent deposit on t he sale and a cashiers check for the balance within three days of the sale, according to Germaine. Marty Wohl, representing South Sebring Land Development, purchased about 450 acres located near George Boulevard for $205,000. The 300-acre Ram Peat property, its offices and assets as well as the peat mines located around several spots in Highlands County, were purchased by representatives of Harrells Horticultural Products LLC of Lakeland. Special to the News-SunAVON PARK In observ ation of Fire Prevention M onth in October, Ridge A rea Arc and Aktion Club m embers learned how to p roperly use a fire exting uisher on Oct. 28. Luke Andrews, fire service s pecialist with Highlands C ounty Fire Services, and f irefighter Mike Jolin provide d the training. They first did a training for the Arc cons umers at 1 p.m. and then w orked with the Aktion Club m embers at 2:15 p.m. at A rcs main campus on C ollege Drive. The training was establ ished to empower individua ls with disabilities to be able t o know what to do in case of a fire so they do not panic in the situation. If you dont think you can put out the fire, get out of the building and call 911, Andrews informed the groups. He emphasized that their safety was top priority. You can stop, drop and roll if you catch on fire, Arc consumer Bobby Byrd said as he demonstrated the roll on the floor. For several individuals this was the first time they had ever used an extinguisher. They watched a video first and then went outside for a hands-on training with real fire and extinguishers. Andrews showed each person what seal to break, how to pull out the safety pin, aim the hose and squirt the chemical on the fire. Jolin stood by to keep the fire lit in the mobile container. For some it was difficult to break the seal but after several attempts they accomplished the task and put the fire out. I did it! Arc consumer Christa Haege proclaimed as she put out the fire. I know what to do cause I have had this training before, Aktion Club member Sharon Carpenter said. Im not afraid of the fire, she said as she grabbed the extinguisher, pulled the pin and walked with authority to the flame to put it out. Several were amazed at their ability to extinguish a fire. Some were timid but still gave it a try with the assistance of Andrews. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 3, 2010Page 3A Main Office 2600 U.S. 27 North Sebring, FL 33870 (863) 385-8700Avon Park400 U.S. 27 North Avon Park, FL 33825 (863) 453-6400South Sebring3540 U.S. 27 South Sebring, FL 33870 (863) 386-1900Lake Placid120 U.S. 27 South Lake Placid, FL 33852 (863) 465-2700Downtown Sebring205 West Center Ave. Sebring, FL 33870 (863) 385-7737Sun N Lake6505 U.S. 27 North Sebring, FL 33870 (863) 314-9797 Were Celebrating our 25thAnniversary!

We are not debating that i ssue here. We are, however, pointing o ut to the politicians on the c ounty commission that the m ajor argument against A mendment 4 had to do with t he technical complexities of l and use issues, and the need f or trained experts to work t hem through. The whole idea is to keep t he process professional, and n ot put it into the hands of peop le who dont understand the r amifications and possible consequences of extremely complex proposals. County commissioners may be intelligent and well-educated, but that does not necessarily make them knowledgeable in land use. In fact, because they are politicians, commissioners are often drawn to the short-term, easier answer. Jobs, whispers a developer, and the politician listens harder. Youll regret this, yells a citizen, and the politician shrugs, especially if he or she is term-limited. Specialists have deemed the three developments Blue Head Ranch, Lake Placid Groves, and the Lake Placid Vision Overlay to not be in the countys, or Floridas, best interest. We agree with that finding. Too many unanswered questions exist regarding available water, urban sprawl in a sensitive environmental area, and the current surplus of available housing. Fact, land is a finite resource. Fact, construction jobs are temporary. We believe it is time to protect what wild lands we have left. We also believe it is time to stop using expansion as a business model. We need to create a broader economy and a more varied job base. The same old, same old, is not going to provide new opportunities or solve long standing problems. County commissioners need to put aside bias and personal relationships and listen instead to the wishes of their constituents, and to the advice of people who are trained and experienced. Heaven knows there are more than enough failed subdivisions throughout Highlands County to make any openminded individual think twice about building more. Too often in the past, politicians rationalized their decisions, siding with developers, rubber stamping projects that were regretted later. We have entered a new age that requires a new way of doing things. If the professionals a re telling us these developmen ts do not conform to state statu te and are warning us about t he problems, dont wink at t he developer suck it up and do the right thing. Do not appeal the DCA s findings.

W hether or not Amendment 4 was rejected by voters Tuesday, the countys plans to appeal the Department of Community Affairs finding that three large developments c urrently planned for the southern part of the county are out of c ompliance with state statutes is a perfect example of why enough p rivate citizens were angry enough to get the amendment r equiring voter approval for changes in the comprehensive land u se plan on the ballot in the first place. I feel guilty about it, if you want to know the truth. Patrice Hill, chief economic correspondent for The Washington Times, reports that while the down economy has caused the rest of America to struggle, Washington, D.C., is flourishing. While America has lost 8.3 million jobs since the beginning of the recession, the Washington metropolitan region has lost only 35,000. And by August 2009, not only were all 35,000 of those jobs recovered, but, says The Washington Post, 20,000 new ones were added and thousands more have been added since. Thus, while the jobless rate hovers near 10 percent nationally, its around 6 percent in D.C., the lowest unemployment rate among Americas 49 largest metro areas. When times are good in America, theyre better in Washington, where coffers are flush with tax revenue. When times are bad in America, theyre better yet in Washington, where policymakers borrow and pass out billions. Thats why, says the Brookings Institution, D.C. has grown nearly 7 percent since the recession began in December 2007. Its also why people and organizations are flocking to the region. Its population has been growing by about 100,000 a year. Most Fortune 500 companies have a presence here, happily snapping up large government contracts of every kind. Federal contracts, says Hill, pump $84 billion into the D.C. economy every year revenue that produces lots of good-paying private-sector jobs, too. Which is why I accepted a temporary assignment in the region. In addition to writing this column, I contract out my writing and communication services. Unlike much of the rest of America, where work has slowed, business is brisk in D.C. Shortly after I arrived, I was contacted by a headhunter to see if I was interested in another assignmen t with a large quasigovernment agenc y that is receiving b illions every month in taxpayer-funded bailout dough. I told the headhunter I could nev er work for such an organization, but was curious about the salary. When he told me I nearly fell off my wallet. It was an absurd amount of money. But then, a lot of things are absurd in the land of milk and honey. There are lots of people in D.C. who work in government jobs, who never have to worry about layoffs. The salaries are high not the low salaries that governmen t workers used to be paid and the benefits are fabulous. I have friends holding such government jobs. The y are good, intelligent people and many of their jobs military, legal and so on are important jobs. Still, I can understand many Americansfrustratio n with Washington. It is sheltered from the hard realitie s that most Americans face every day. If a private-sector emplo yee in middle America isnt producing tangible value, particularly in a down econ omy, he or she will be let g o. In the end, our nations capital is ultimately a reflec tion of our nations health. If America doesnt resume healthy growth, even Washington, D.C. will even tually suffer. But for the moment, things are dandy in D.C. Employment is high. The restaurants are full. Few have a worry in the world. For the moment, Im riding out the down economy while enjoying a nice income income made po ssible, in part, by taxpayer funding and excessive government spending. But, as I said, at least I feel guilty about it. Tom Purcell, a freelance writer is also a humor columnist for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, and is nationally syndicated exclusively by Cagle Cartoons newspaper syndicate. E-mail Tom at Purcell@caglecartoons.com. Recession? Not in Washington D.C. Guest Column Tom Purcell Government is not the problem E ditor: Doubling government is not the solut ion to higher taxes. It is the problem. Tax fraud and home foreclosures, all s tates have given small state entities t he power to assess or tax. This is a n ational scam. The Attorney General a nd the President of these United States s hould require an investigation as to w hat part this plays in the huge forec losures in our nation. All wars have b een over property rights. America sepa rated from English rule over taxation. M any lives were lost on both sides. W ho gains by foreclosure? The A merican banking system is the only w inner. They can sell the property over a nd over in a short period of time. It is o ne of the most corrupt practices that c an cause serious civil unrest in our n ation. The American people ask relief from t his corrupt policy of given the power t o assess or tax to small state entities, c reating double taxation to small vill ages where the county government is s ufficient. There is a need to abolish duplicati ng of government. The cost is too g reat. The county form of government h as worked for many years and is very g ood at its job of serving the people. S tate legislation giving powers of doub le taxation to small state entities is f raud. The duplicating of service to the p eople is not needed. It creates added c ost and doubles the cost of governm ent. Improvement districts should be a bolished in the state of Florida. The r etired veterans of the state of Florida s hould demand its demise as it creates d ouble taxation and fraud on home and p roperty owners and leads to home f oreclosure nationwide. Government is not the answer to our f inancial problems, it is the problem. Billie E. Jewett SebringProjects failed on their own merits E ditor: County planning staff, commissione rs and their consultant, Central Florida R egional Planning Council, should take p ause at the determination by the F lorida Department of Community A ffairs (DCA) that Blue Head Ranch, L ake Placid Groves and the Lake P lacid town expansion violate Florida l aw and are inconsistent with the Florida Comprehensive Land Plan. Many taxpayer dollars went out the window trying to accommodate these pie in the sky projects, that collectively have enough homes and commercial development to just about provide a new house for every resident now existing in Highlands County. Developers sought approval to build homes for at least 90,000 people, when the county population is only 98,000. Shouldnt these numbers alone have raised a red flag to our decision-makers, legal counsel and consultants that something was amiss? No, it took an outside agency to see the reality of the disaster looming ahead if these projects were approved. There is a push to keep these projects alive, perhaps because there are such big names behind them: J.D. Alexander and Lykes Brothers, to name just a few. Or perhaps the county will persist because they have already invested so much money trying to accommodate them. There may be finger pointing, blaming and politicking about it. The truth is, these projects failed on their merits, and the county commissioners should be grateful they were stopped. Real solutions are needed for the countys real problems, including urban deterioration and abandonment and how to develop the existing backlog of available lots, estimated to be between 57,000 and 63,000. Two of the rejected projects were start over cities that would worsen these problems, and ruin what little natural habitat andfunctioning ecological systems that still exist. One letter from the South Florida Water Management District said that building Blue Head Ranch would lower the lake levels in Highlands County.This got overlooked as developers kept changing their plans to make them appear to have less impact. The county should not send good money after bad. The county commissioners should admit their error, abandon these projects and take the DCA recommendation to rescind the amendments. The people of Highlands County should support the DCAas a fully functioning watchdog against developer greed and destruction in our counties. Paula House Lake PlacidTeen could have walked awayEditor: To the writer of outrage at Highlands County Republican Party, I think the key word in your letter They went up to their booth!

I am neither Republican nor Democrat ... just a voter and my four children have to make up their mind and to seek and ask questions.

OBITUARIES COMMUNITYBRIEFS Associated PressLONDON Oil company BPPLC shied away from spearheading any industry rush back into the Gulf of Mexico as it revealed Tuesday that the cost of its devastating oil spill has jumped to $40 billion taking the shine off a return to profit in the third quarter. Chief Executive Bob Dudley was forced to raise the likely cost of the worst accidental spill in U.S. history by $7.7 billion because of delays to the final capping of the busted Macondo well. That dragged down third quarter net income by more than 60 percent compared to a year ago, to $1.79 billion from $5.3 billion. But underlying replacement cost profit a key industry benchmark that excludes the one-time cost of the spill came in at $5.5 billion, beating analystsforecasts of $4.6 billion. Several residents along the Gulf Coast were happy to see BPturning a profit, keeping the company afloat so it can live up to its prom ise to compensate tho se affected by the spill. I dont think its to an yones advantage to see B P go broke or go out of bus iness, said Byron Encalad e, the president of t he Louisiana Oysterm en Association whose oyst er beds are all dead or dyin g. We want them to stay rig ht and keep making money. A ll we want is for them to ta ke care of the people who ha ve been affected and the ir livelihoods destroyed.

Associated PressCAPE CANAVERAL N ASAcelebrated 10 years of c ontinuous human presence at t he International Space S tation on Tuesday while r eadying shuttle Discovery f or one last trip into orbit. Liftoff is set for today at 3 :52 p.m. Discovery is bound for the s pace station, currently home t o six U.S. astronauts and R ussian cosmonauts who f ielded calls of congratulat ions on this special annivers ary. You all are incredible a mbassadors, NASA A dministrator Charles Bolden J r. said in a broadcast hookup f rom Kennedy Space Center. What you do is actually a modern-day Star Trek. On Nov. 2, 2000, three men moved into the young space station. People from around the world have been there ever since, living and working more than 200 miles above Earth. On its 39th and final voyage, Discovery will bring six visitors as well as thousands of pounds of supplies, including a humanoid robot. Forecasters said there is a 70 percent chance that the weather will cooperate for the 3:52 p.m. liftoff. NASAtest director Steve Payne said there is a lot of excitement as the countdown enters its final stages. Shuttle workers put their heart and soul into this one, with the intent of making this last voyage of Discovery as good as the 38 that have come before, he said. Shes now poised to take to the skies tomorrow, and when she goes, shes going to take a little bit of every one of us with her, Payne told reporters. Discovery has carried 180 individuals into orbit over its 26-year career, and logged nearly 150 million miles and more than 5,600 orbits of Earth. It is NASAs oldest surviving shuttle and fleet leader, and will be the first to be prepared for museum retirement.

Steve Lindsey walk in front of launch pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center. The final launch for Discovery is scheduled for today. On launch eve, NASA marks 10 years at space station f acility had a much larger staff. Cooper also pointed to the new smart elect rical meters which are being phased into the s ystem again, while more accurate and e fficient, the smart meters will cost jobs in t he beginning. Time will make the difference. Cooper said t here is a huge market for alternative energy sources, and a growing need for research, not just in the creation of new fuels, but in learning how to make buildings more efficient. That means that there will be opportunities in the field of data management, as well as many options unknown at this time. The symposium is designed to answer these and other questions about future opportunities and challenges. Continued from page 2A SFCC hosting green business institute

Continued from page 1A d ecision was not based on t he need for technical advice o n a public safety director, b ut on the citys need to fill t hat position. (The public safety direct or) is a complicated issue. It h as been suggested that you c ould save over $100,00 per y ear, and I can tell you that t here could be substantial s avings over time. What we d o not have is any kind of i dea what our obligations are t o pensions The elevation of Cmdr. R owan to chief does not c hange the dollars, Behrens s aid. I have no reservation o n choosing Mike Rowan as y our police chief. The fact t hat Cmdr. Rowan has been e levated does not change in m y mind the need to look at c ombining the departments i nto public safety. Those are t wo separate issues. I think we need to determ ine if we are going to have a public safety officer now. It a ppears to me that you have a lready made that decision f or us. This is nothing a gainst Cmdr. Rowan, Gray s aid. Please Cmdr. Rowan, d ont walk out and dont take i t personal. I feel that you a lready made the decision, but you made just half of it. You have made half the decision but not the other half. You need a sworn officer to communicate with the other agencies like the FBI or the FDLE. Choosing the police chief is my function is my responsibility, and choosing a public safety director is something you all decide. Thats a policy decision. But choosing a police chief I think falls in the purview of the city manager, Behrens said. Thats not what I say, thats what your charter says and your city attorney says. Thats my understanding my job function, Behrens said. My concern is this in our budget. Do we have the money to pay Cmdr. Rowan? Gray asked. Behrens pointed out the council already voted to approve both Rowans salary as a police chief. Youve only been here 29 days. You really have not had the time to know what we want and what the citizens of Avon Park want, Gray said. I think that before you make any appointments, you should see what the city wants. Thats what we hired you for. I think the city manager should evaluate every situation before he makes an appointment. Are you even out of your probation period yet? No maam, I am on probation for six months, Behrens responded. Until that time frame, I dont think any more appointments should be made, Gray said. If council wants to make that vote now, that is fine with me. If that is how you really feel, Behrens said. Council directed Behrens to come back with a cleaner copy of his RFPby the next meeting.

The two-hour debate conc luded with a motion from c ommissioner Barbara S tewart, who refused to add i n the motion that the funds w ould not be used for relig ious purposes, despite r equests from Clerk of Courts B ob Germaine. Germaine insisted that it w as against the law for him o r the commissioners to pay a ny funds not approved by l aw. I have a hospital board t hat has been told by their a ttorney that this is illegal, a nd I have a board of county c ommissioners who have an a ttorney who is telling them t his is illegal. The right thing t o do is to get an opinion. I u nderstand that nobody w ants to go to court to get an o pinion, Germaine said. I c annot not go against the a dvice of my attorney witho ut the affidavits stating that t hey are not using the funds f or religious purposes. Germaine also pointed out that the board and the clerk were personally responsible if found guilty of making those illegal payments. Diana Furr, director of Samaritans touch, informed the commission and the clerk that her organization already has those provisions in their grant agreements, and would be happy to provide whatever the clerk needed. We could be happy to give you an affidavit that these funds would not be used for religious activities, Furr said. But Macbeth made it clear that the debate was not how the money was spent, but who was getting the taxpayer funds. I hate to rain on this parade. The Constitution does not say that you cannot give funds to do religious activities, it says that you cannot provide government funds to sectarian or religious institutions, Macbeth said. But, despite the Macbeths legal advice, Germaine persisted with his request. If I am provided affidavits that now of these funds are used for religious purposes, then I will make the payments, Germaine told commissioners. Continued from page 1A I hate to rain on this parade.

The items in plain v iew as well as other invest igative information led d etectives of the Special O perations Unit to believe t hat they were dealing with a m arijuana growing operation, s o the residence was secured a nd detectives applied for a s earch warrant. Once the search warrant w as received and detectives e ntered a shed in the back y ard, it was discovered there w as a trap door that led to an u nder ground compartment c ontaining 40 marijuana p lants that were approximately 4-feet tall, about to produce buds and weighed 83.25 pounds. The street value of these plants would be in excess of $150,000, according to the HCSO. The underground area had basically three rooms with ceilings about 10 feet high, a common area where the electronics, A/C units and fertilizers were stored and then one room to the right and one to the left each with 20 plants. Curbelo, who gave an address of 1141 N.W. 32nd Avenue in Miami, was arrested for theft of more than $20,000 but less than $100,000 (electricity); theft by altering or tampering with utility equipment, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, trafficking in marijuana in excess of 25 pounds, production of marijuana, and possession of drug equipment. The total bond was $58,000. Mr. Curbelo was bonded out of jail by Big Lake Bail Bonds on Sunday. Anyone with further information on this or any other growing operation in Highlands County are asked to call 402-7200 or notify Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-226 TIPS (8477) and be eligible for a reward.

Each team has cheered at 10 games this season and are headed to their most important performance of the year. Each squad will attend MFFCC Cheer-Off 2010 on Saturday, Nov. 6 at the Lakeland Civic Center. Here is a little information about each of the squads.

www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 3, 2010Page 3B By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week TALLADEGA, Ala. Five years ago, the talk of NASCAR was the entry of new owners with new money. Most of them had little racing knowledge or experience. Most of them are now gone, and George Gillett, who swung into NASCAR by buying out Ray Evernham and acquiring rights to Richard Petty (hence the term Richard Petty Motorsports), seems unlikely to hang around much longer, given his financial problems. At the end of the day, as many drivers are fond of saying, the only outsider who has enjoyed much success in the past 20 years is Joe Gibbs. Naturally, Jeff Burton had some insight to offer. If I had a lot of money, and I went and bought an NFL team, Im not so sure I would know how to do that, he said. I might think I know how, and I might be a great fan of the sport and I might think I know what the Panthers (for instance) need to do to make a roster change to be a better team but, the reality of it is, who knows? The reason that Richard Childress and Jack Roush and Joe Gibbs and Rick Hendrick and those guys have been here for a long time is because they know the sport. Joe did it probably quicker than the rest of them as far as his motorsports experience. He did a great job of hiring the right people to fill the void that he had in it. A great leader, a great manager, a great owner of something that doesnt mean hes going to be great at everything. Hoax Robby Gordon circulated a rumor that he was stopped for speeding on I-77. The hook was that he was supposedly driving a Sprint Cup car (an illegal one). This, of course, was a ruse designed to allow him to publicize Speed Energy Drink, which is produced, according to sponsor representative Steve Nichols, with a commitment to Speed, energy and relentless determination. And the assumption, often correct, that the media will flock to stupid stuff. Rest in peace Jim Hunter, who was involved in motorsports for parts of six decades, died on Friday night in Daytona Beach, Fla., at age 71, after fighting cancer for a year. The NASCAR vice president was also a sportswriter, author, publicist and track president. Hunter played football and baseball at the University of South Carolina. NASCAR President Mike Helton called Hunter a uniquely talented man (who) cannot be replaced. Trevor, not Bill Nineteen-year-old Trevor Bayne will get the nod for his Sprint Cup debut at Texas on Nov. 7, taking the wheel of the Wood Brothers No. 21 Ford in Bill Elliotts stead.

Last week: Kyle Busch made a breathtaking, and controversial, move on the final lap to win at Talladega Superspeedway. Runner-up Aric Almirola suggested that Busch be stripped of the victory for putting two wheels below the tracks forbidden yellow line as he made the pass. The margin? An incredible .002 of a second.CAMPING WORLD TRUCK By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week TALLADEGA, Ala. Supposedly, NASCAR officials are contemplating an offseason change in the Chase for the Sprint Cup that would provide some sort of elimination process. Based on the current Chase, it sort of takes care of itself. Seven races into the 10-race Chase, the crowd at the top is noteworthy. Never have three drivers been locked in such a tight battle, with 38 points separating Jimmie Johnson, Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick. But, with the great wild card (Talladega) behind them, the race has been effectively limited to those three. Fourtime champion Jeff Gordon is fourth but trails Johnson by 207 points. Clint Bowyer, the winner of the Amp Energy Juice 500 and only driver to win twice during the Chase to date brings up the rear, 367 points behind Johnson. Gordon, Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart, Matt Kenseth, Kurt Busch, Jeff Burton, Greg Biffle and Bowyer are all far off the pace entering the remaining races in Fort Worth, Texas; Avondale, Ariz.; and Homestead,Fla. Johnson has won the past four Sprint Cup championships, an unprecedented achievement, but in each of his past titles, Johnson took a decent cushion into the final race. He doesnt expect that to be the case this time. The way its gone, I better be prepared for (winning the Ford 400 at) Homestead-Miami Speedway, said Johnson. If Im not, then we arent doing our jobs. The last couple years down there, weve made sure that we had pace in our car and speed. Last year we won the pole, finishing sixth (actually fifth). Ran good, had a strong night being conservative. I feel like coming to Homestead this time, we need to race for this thing, which Im pretty confident were going to have to do. At Talladega, Harvick finished second, Johnson seventh and Hamlin ninth. Harvick has the most top-10 finishes (23). Johnson and Harvick each have 15 topfive finishes. Hamlin has the most victories (seven), one more than Johnson. After Talladega, where Hamlin managed to come back from being a lap down to the leaders, he said, It looked like everyone broke even. I lost a little to the (Johnson), lost to the (Harvick), but still it wasnt anything detrimental.Big Moneys not the same ve years later in NASCARNot As Easy This Time?V E R S U S 2010 STANDINGSSprint Cup Pts.1.

Jason White 802 Whos hot: Clint Bowyer is last in the Chase and the only driver to win two of its races. ... Jimmie Johnson has nished seventh or better in the past six races. Whos not: A crash relegated Jeff Burton to 10th place in the standings. ... Martin Truex Jr. picked up two positions in the standings, rising from 22nd to 20th. Gosh forbid that a race be run at Talladega without at least one car skidding upside down. A.J. Allmendingers Ford did the honors in a multicar crash that effectively froze the eld and ended the Amp Energy Juice 500. Clint Bowyer won the race by judgment call. NASCAR ofcials said the nose on his Chevy was ahead of teammate Kevin Harvicks when the yellow ag waved after both drivers had already taken the white ag. Harvicks second-place nish allowed him to gain ground on points leader Jimmie Johnson, who nished seventh, and Denny Hamlin, who nished ninth. Johnsons edge is now 14 points over Hamlin and 38 over Harvick, with three races remaining. Astonishingly, Bowyer, who brings up the rear, is the only driver who has won more than once so far in the 10-race Chase. As a practical matter, the championship comes down to the three top drivers. No one else is within 200 points. Richard Petty Motorsports continues to be hounded by nancial problems, but the team plans to enter all four of its Fords for Aric Almirola, Allmendinger, Paul Menard and Elliott Sadler at Texas. The Talladega race featured 26 leaders and 87 lead changes. Dale Earnhardt Jr. led the most laps, 24, but wound up placing 39th. NASCAR ofcials listed the Talladega attendance at 110,000. In 2003, it was 170,000. From 1972 through 2004, Talladega followed Martinsville each spring. It didnt occur again until this year. The only driver ever to follow up a victory at NASCARs shortest track with a win at the longest track was David Pearson, who pulled it off in 1973. Juan Pablo Montoyas Talladega pole was his third of the season. He nished third behind Bowyer and Harvick. Harvick BurtonEarnhardt took the blame for a crash that eliminated him and Burton, but Burton took no offense. After emerging from the infield hospital, where he and Earnhardt talked, Burton said, He just said he didnt get lined up and just caught me in the quarter panel wrong. When you push like that and draft like that, its going to happen. I did it all day long. I had a few times when I thought I was going turn somebody around and didnt. Its just the nature of the beast. He did not do anything wrong. Im not mad about it. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: Perhaps the victim of another crash, A.J. Allmendinger, said it best: I hate this place. I always have and always will.JEFF BURTON VS.

The Pee Wee T hunderbolts, with head c oach Chantel Parris boasts e ight team members. These girls learned a lot of t he fundamentals in cheerl eading, but more importantly they learned that working together and treating each other with respect, which is how a team is built. Head coach Becky Gripeo and assistant Ashley Deery head up the five-member Junior Thunderbolts. When this quintet of girls first began they had an idea about cheerleading, but as of today they have learned technique. They have heart and soul and know they can do anything. The Senior Bluestreaks, under head coach Tiffany Slager and competition coach Michael Owens, carries eight team members. This squad is filled with mostly first-year cheerleaders, and it was great to see them overcome obstacles and come together as a team. They are dedicated and determined to do well at their upcoming competition. Please join us in wishing all of these teams good luck as they head to Lakeland on Saturday to show what Sebring is made of.

By JENNIFER FORKER For The Associated PressSharon Bowers has an i ngenious trick for distracti ng children from their postH alloween sugary stashes: U se the candy as construct ion materials in crafts. How can a responsible p arent let a kid enjoy candy w ithout letting him stuff h imself with junk? asks B owers in her well-timed b ook, Candy Construction ( Storey Publishing, 2010). The trick is not to EATit b ut to make something W ITH it. BowersCandy C onstruction is a little book w ith big ideas, from a pirate s hip whose hull is carved f rom a block of Rice Krispie t reats to castles, a train and w earable jewelry. Her race c ar incorporates a Snickers b ar, Reeses Peanut Butter C ups, Hersheys chocolate b ars and sour candy strips. Bowers, who lives in the H ells Kitchen neighborhood o f Manhattan, is a literary a gent and the author of last y ears Ghoulish Goodies ( Storey Publishing, 2009). W hile testing recipes for that b ook, she hit upon ideas for t his one, which is geared m ore toward entertaining k ids. Her own two boys are 4 and 7. The kids really liked the p rojects (in Ghoulish G oodies) where they didnt h ave to wait for me to bake s omething first, Bowers s ays. They loved the buildi ng. She noticed that her boys, w hile in the creative throes o f construction, werent eati ng much of the candy. Wow,I thought, theyre actually making M artian aliens and not putt ing marshmallows in their m ouths,Bowers says. Of course, it helps that B owers lays some ground r ules for her little construct ion workers. She lists them i n her book: No. 1: Absolutely no eati ng while building. What c onstruction worker snacks o n the job? No. 2: One item can be c hosen from among the supp lies, or one piece of what w as built, but its to be eaten a fter cleanup. No. 3: Candy construct ion workers always brush t heir teeth after work. Her boys obey the rules, B owers has found, because c reativity trumps sugar. The k ids rarely want to devour t heir finished creations. I had a castle in my k itchen for a month because I couldnt bear to throw it a way, Bowers confesses. To stock ones own candy construction site, Bowers recommends having these building blocks on hand: Oreos, including the minis, pretzel sticks, tubs of storebought frosting (for mortar), and licorice string (it ties stuff together). She recommends visiting dollar stores with some regularity to pick up unusual candy on the cheap. Bowers is committed to her confectionery craft: She keeps a large plastic bin full of store-bought candy for her childrens construction time. She recommends that other adults use her project ideas to get kidsown creativity churning. When I let go and let (the boys) do it their own way, the payoff is really lovely time you can spend with your kids, even older kids, even teenagers, Bowers says. That has been really nice. Most of the projects in her book take less than an hour, says Bowers, and theyre not as messy as adults may think. The Toy Car, adapted from Candy Construction Bowers suggests novice candy construction workers start with this easy, fast project.

The club plans to place the Christmas decorations on the Avon Park Mall in November prior to the Christmas parade. Teri Semper announced the new crop jumbo pecans are expected to arrive next week. The price will remain $8 for one-pound bags of select jumbo halves. Interested buyers may contact any garden club member or call Semper at 453-4361 to place an order. All club members will have pecans to sell. Seibold introduced a noxious weed, new to members, found in her garden. It is the Florida Betony, or Rattlesnake weed (Stachys Floridana). It is a perennial weed primarily of turf grass and lawn having large segmented underground tubers resembling a rattlesnake tail. Florida Betony may also occur as a weed of landscapes, nursery stock and ornamentals. It is found throughout the southeastern United States and has spread northward from Florida since the 1940s although it is still somewhat rare in Virginia. Identifying characteristics are lance-shaped leaves with scalloped margins, stems that are square in the cross sections and the rattlesnake tubers. The Florida Betony spreads as the nut grass and is difficult to eradicate. Teri Semper drew the lucky number for a lovely Begonia door prize. The Thursday, Nov. 11 meeting will be with Kim Pascoe.

The first phase of the $100 million Facebook-funded makeover of Newarks school system will reach far beyond classrooms and into living rooms. Over the next eight weeks, city residents will be targeted with phone calls, home visits and focus groups as part of an effort to get parents more involved in the educational process and to find out what is working and what isnt in the citys troubled school system. We dont want to give anyone any excuses for not participating in this process, Shavar Jeffries, president of the Newark Public Schools Advisory Board, said Monday at a news conference. There are no excuses. Mayor Cory Booker and city officials made the announcements Monday at the kickoff of the Partnership for Educatio n in Newark, whose hea dquarters are housed in a converted furniture store in the citys heart. Facebook founder Ma rk Zuckerberg in Septemb er pledged $100 million to improve Newarks schoo ls, which have been plagu ed by low test scores, hig h dropout rates and crum bling buildings. The distri ct already spends near ly $24,000 a year mo re than twice the nation al average on each of its 40,000 students. Gov. Chris Christie h as said he will give Booker a major role in overseein g significant changes in t he district, which the sta te took over in 1995. The outreach effort w ill cost about $1 millio n, Booker said. In addition to individual solicitations, t he partnership will hold mee tings at cafes and churche s, place billboards around t he city, and put ads on ci ty buses.

DearAbby: Amale c ousin sent me an invitation t o his wedding. I have met h is fiancee a few times at f amily reunions and wedd ings, and she seems very s weet. The problem is my c ousin sexually abused me f or many years when I was y ounger. I have no desire to a ttend his wedding. Am I obligated to send a c ard or a gift? I dont want h is fiancee to think I dont l ike her, but it makes me s ick to think of celebrating h is marriage after what he d id. What do I say when o ther family members ask w hy Im not going? Am I o bligated to tell her what he d id? Needs to Know in Texas DearNeeds to Know: A y oung man who sexually a buses someone for years i s a predator. And while the n ews may not be greeted w armly, you should say s omething to your cousins f iancee before she marries h im. You could benefit from t alking to a counselor who s pecializes in sexual abuse t o make sure the effects of w hat happened to you dont a ffect you in the future. The c ounselor can help you decide what to do from there. If you dont attend the wedding, you are under no obligation to send a gift or a card. DearAbby: I could never figure out why Margaret, my wife of 20 years, married me. After our wedding she tried to give me an image makeover. Shed buy me clothes I left hanging in the closet. Shed contradict and correct me in public. In general, shed find fault with almost everything I did. She put me down often, and if I reacted, she would either claim it wasnt what she meant to say or tell me, You do it, too. I finally gave up and left her. Margaret has an excellent reputation, so people try to pry into why I left her. When I tell them I wont badmouth her, they tell me she says plenty about me. My response is, Then you know all there is to know, dont you? Two women close to my age, plus one college-age girl, are trying to pursue me. Im afraid if I dont leave this area, Margaret will allege that I left her for one of them. Your thoughts, please. Keeping Mum in Cleveland DearKeeping Mum: You didnt mention how long ago your marriage ended or whether your divorce is final. But regardless, arent you tired of worrying about what your ex is saying about you? The marriage is over kaput! Amove isnt necessary. An effective way to ensure that no one spreads a rumor that you left Margaret for one woman would be to spend time being seen dating all of them. DearAbby: My husband and I have been together for two years, and he still doesnt know my mothers last name (its different from my maiden name), nor does he know the names of all of my siblings. He doesnt think its a big deal. What is your opinion? Name Game in Knoxville, Tenn. DearName Game: Either your husband is not much of a family man or hes not detail-oriented.

Sure you can buy these at the grocery store but it is fun and easy to make your own (not to mention a lot cheaper). Let the kids join you and let their creativity run wild. Now lets gather up some of your favorite herbs and spices and get creative. To create flavored vinegar, you will a bottle of white distilled vinegar. White is the most preferred when making flavored vinegars because it is the least expensive and is very bland. Since it is bland it will not bring its own unique taste to the recipe other than the taste of vinegar. Put the vinegar in a clean, well sterilized glass container. You can find unique glass bottles at dollar stores, large discount stores, and even thrift stores. Add the herbs and spices of your choice to the vinegar. Popular choices include rosemary, oregano, thyme, basil, sage, and cilantro. Colorful herbs will tint your vinegar while also giving it a different flavor. Once you have completed the mixture, the flavored vinegar should be allowed to steep for at least one week. Shake the container each day to allow the herbs to fully mix with the vinegar. While refrigeration is not necessary, most people prefer to store their vinegar in the refrigerator until it is ready to use. After it has steeped for a week give it a test. Simply sprinkle the flavored vinegar on your next dish to taste your creation. Most prefer no more than a teaspoon on their food, but the amount is up to you. Oh, and dont forget, these make great gifts for neighbors, teachers, and even the postman during the holidays. If youre giving your flavored vinegars as gifts why not include your favorite recipes from SavingDinner.com printed on fun papers and tied to the bottle? Heres a few suggestions to get your creative juices flowing: Chives, garlic, peppercorns, and cloves to be use d as salad dressing for potato salad, coleslaw, or pasta. Red chilies, garlic, and jalapeno peppers used in pinto beans, chili, salsa, an d other Mexican cooking. Cranberries, honey, cloves, and cinnamon stick s used on chicken, turkey, an d salads. Dill and vinegar is great on potato salad, coleslaw, greens, fresh peas, and beet s. Rosemary, with or witho ut garlic, works well with whi te beans, soups, salad dressings, and pork. Apples, sage, and garlic goes great with sauerkraut, pork, sausage, and poultry stuffing. Leanne Ely is a New York Times bestselling author of 'Body Clutter' and the Saving Dinner series.
