"But, they actually do not qualify for office until they get their paperwork processed with the governor's office," Helms said Friday. Apparently, the outgoing commissioners Chairman Don Bates and Edgar Stokes leave office at 12 a.m. on Nov. 15. Commissioner Guy Maxcy, who resigned effective Nov. 9 because he was running for the tax collector position, set the stage for a possible lack of a quorum on Nov. 16, when the elects are scheduled to take office. "It has never happened in my term here," Helms said. "I have been with the board since 1989, and with the clerk's office before that, and I don't think we have every had three commissioners leaving at the same time," Helms added. Helms said it was the sort of situation where the light just came on about what might happen, and staff had to wait until after the election to see if it would happen.

Throughout the week, Ivey h ad informed the press that Carlso n would be removed as soon as t he order was signed, but his e-mail la te on Thursday confirmed that there is still some paperwork to be comple ted before that happens. "While Carlson has been arreste d, formal charges have not been fil ed yet and we typically wait until t he formal charges are filed or a gran d jury indictment is presented," Iv ey said via e-mail late Thursday afternoon. Ivey stated that the decision was stalled after meeting with the governor's legal team. "Once we receive formal charging documents from the state attorne y, we will likely proceed with su spending Commissioner Carlson ," Ivey said. An out-of-county warrant w as issued for Carlson's arrest on No v. 3, for boating under the influen ce and vessel homicide, according to a press release from the Highlan ds County Sheriff's Office. Carlson turned himself in on No v. 3, was booked and bonded out 5 9 minutes later, according to t he booking documents acquired fro m the Sheriff's Office. Ivey stated that if Carlson is removed from office, the governor 's office will accept applications f or an interim replacement. "That process takes about tw o months," Ivey said Wednesday.

The Circle was lined with tents and booths this year bringing more than 42 places to grab a bite to eat or purchase a favorite trinket. Many of the vendors were selling hand-made jewelry items as well as some clothing; all with a message of course. An organic, all-natural soap table was nearby with a line of spectators asking questions and making purchases. West Center Street had been transformed into "Children's Street". The street was lined with games and activities, safety demonstrations and characters, and clowns. Also found on "Children's Street" was Miss Piggy. Not the muppet character, but a real pig that had been rescued and given a new life at the Swine Knot Sanctuary. Beverly Kaelin is the owner and operator of the potbellied pig sanctuary. "I've been doing this for 10 years. I have 25 pigs that I've rescued from all kinds of different places," Kaelin said. Everyone could be seen feeding and petting Miss Piggy as she snorted up and down the street. Children's Street was sponsored by Tom and Bonnie Crutchfield and Scott and Terri Crutchfield.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEYchristopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING In order to pass into law, the constitutional amendments on Tuesday's ballot had to have the support of 60 percent of the voters. This meant some amendments failed. For example, Amendment 1, which was to repeal public financing of candidates who accepted spending limits, only received 53 percent of the vote statewide, meaning the repeal failed. Public financing for candidates who accept spending limits is still in effect. In Highlands County 56 percent of voters were in favor of repeal. Amendment 2, which approved an additional homestead exemption to deployed members of the military, passed. It was supported by 78 percent of voters statewide, and by 83 percent of Highlands County voters. Amendment 4, requiring citizen approval of all exceptions to comprehensive land use plans, failed when 70 percent of voters over all rejected it. Amendments 5 and 6 which both require stricter guidelines in how state legislative and federal congressional districts are drawn both passed; 63 percent apiece. Here in Highlands, they also passed, but very narrowly; by 61 and 60 percent respectively. Only 55 percent of the electors voted for Amendment 8 loosening the class size amendment of 2002 so that school averages could be used instead of absolute classroo m counts. So, it failed. Here in Highlands County, 61 pe rcent of voters approved it The non-binding stra w poll, proposing a manda te forcing the federal gover nment to balance its budg et every year passed by 7 2 percent. Local referendums had a few surprises. The School Board of Highlands County had tw o issues on the ballot as king to retain the 0.25 sp ecial millage in place to p ay for critical needs; an d deciding whether to direc tly elect the school superintendent, or have the position appointed by the school board. Sixty-seven percent of voters agreed to keep t he millage rate and 65 perce nt voted to have the superi ntendent of schools rema in an elected position. In Lake Placid, vote rs turned down the idea of creating a town manager b y 62 percent. And the Spring La ke Improvement District refe rendum was defeated by 7 0 percent. At the state level Mar co Rubio was elected to t he Senate, and Tom Roon ey re-elected to Congres s. Both are Republicans. The Florida cabinet is now exclusive ly Republican: Rick Sco tt, governor; Pam Bond i, attorney general; Je ff Atwater, chief financi al officer; and Adam Putnam commissioner of agricu lture and customer service Final referendum results Scott Special to the News-SunSEBRING Dental disease continues to be the most chronic disease affecting the health and wellbeing of children and adolescents. With that in mind, Children's Dental of Highlands at the Highlands County Health Department and Kids Dent will partner up to provide a county-wide preventive dental program on Friday. Kid's Dent of Highlands County is a school-based dental program that provides dental screening exams for all secondor third-graders. Sealants and some restorative and endodontic treatment for selected children will be given. "Pediatric dentistry is a vital component of the overall health and well being of our county's children and it is our mission to support these preventive efforts," said Robert Palussek, administrator, Highlands County Health Department. The school board has approved the health screening needed to identify dental disease for the children of Highlands County and is also supplying transportation to and from the dental sites where children will receive sealants. Dr. Barbara Platte and Dr. Stephen Hulen, along with their staffs, will administer the services from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12 at the Lake Placid site of the Highlands County Health Department, 106 N. Main Ave. There are approximately 30 children who have been previously screened by Hulen and his staff. If no dental decay in the permanent first molars is detected, sealants will be placed. Sealants will protect these permanent teeth from decay. Sealants have been available for almost 25 years, but many dentists do not take full advantage of them. They received approval from the American Dental Association (ADA) Council on Dental Materials in 1976. Studies have shown that sealants are very effective in preventing dental decay Sealants are composed of various resin systems which may include cyanoacrylates, polyurethanes and BIS-GMAproducts. The most commonly used products are generally comprised of composite resins used as tooth colored filling materials. Many studies have been done over the last 20 years to determine the safety and efficacy of these products In order to bond with tooth structure, the tooth must be clean. Etching the tooth surface is required. The acid used to etch teeth is usually phosphoric acid. It removes debris from the tooth surface, provides better wetting capability of the enamel for the resin and selects dissolution of the enamel surface. If you have an interest in having your child's teeth sealed, call Children's Dental of Highlands, 3827257, for a new patient exam appointment.

More than 11 years after t he murderous rampage at t hat Colorado high school, c arried out by two teens w ho had been teased and s nubbed by school mates, t oday's public school stud ent knows far more about b ullying, its long-term i mpact and what to do to s top it than ever before. But while awareness of t he problem, and the push t o address it, has come a l ong way, bullying continu es to be a vexing concern i n many school hallways. And some recent t ragedies, namely the rash o f recent suicides linked to a nti-gay harassment, offer a nother opportunity for p rogress. At least seven teenagers h ave killed themselves s ince July across the count ry after enduring ridicule for their sexual orientation. ... It is a heartbreaking occurrence that must be stopped, and the fresh spate of suicides shows this particular class of victim remains a vulnerable target. The question is what to do about it, and the controversy revolves around whether anti-bullying efforts must, in order to be effective, specifically address harassment that targets gay youth. Of course they must. Ignoring why some kids get bullied only stigmatizes the reason, and complicates the solution. Unfortunately, some ideologues are resisting anti-gay bullying efforts, suggesting it is some liberal tool to influence today's youth on how homosexuality is to be viewed. Religious beliefs and opinions about sexual orientation aside, anti-bullying efforts strive to teach kids that no one deserves to be harassed or tormented, no matter the reason or the bully's opinion of them. But avoiding specific discussion of the reasons people get bullied their weight, their religion, their choice of dress, their sexual orientation risks silently condoning their mistreatment in the void. It's not worth the risk. Combating bullying requires detailed instruction on what behavior should not be tolerated. And those who single out gay youth for harassment must be told in no uncertain terms that what they are doing is wrong, and unacceptable. Bottom line: Specifics are a must in preventing bullying. An editorial excerpt from the Orlando Sentinel Online: http://www.sun-sentinel.com EDITORIAL& OPINION TODAY'SEDITORIALTODAY'SLETTERS O ut of tragedy often comes progress.

The Republicans are happy because they won control of the House. The Democrats are happy because they kept control of the Senate. And the rest of us are happy because finally all the stupid campaign ads will stop running at least for now. It has been a contentious election season. Anyone still doubt that? The contention remains Tuesday night someone on Facebook was already referring to American voters as "stupid" for voting in Republicans. That attitude ticked me off, and I confess I got a little sarcastic with the person in question. For the record, I apologized for my comment, though the Facebook user has yet to offer any apologies for his gross insult of his fellow Americans. And we are going to have to get used to contention. We now have a divided government. Alot of people seem to prefer that, even though it means we'll be treated to both sides blaming each other for not getting things done. An optimistic person would say that a divided government means that they'll have to lay aside their differences and work together for the good of the country. Sorry, but even I'm not that optimistic. So, what happened? The party in power tends to lose seats in a mid-term election, but the losses to the House were huge. Why did people who were content to allow the Democrats run it all change their minds? Everyone is offering their opinions. The following are mine. First, you can't ignore the influence of the Tea Party movement. While not all Tea Party candidates won their elections, a number of them did. The movement energized people and got them to the polls. Given that turnout played a big role in this election, that is a big deal. And don't think the Tea Party people are going anywhere. These people will be paying attention to what ge ts done and what doesn't. If they don't like what they see, everyone will know about it. Politicians should keep this in mind heading into 2012. Second, people are ticked off. The economy isn't in th e greatest of shape. The majo rity of Americans oppose Obamacare. Even the President acknowledged tha t people might have felt that government was getting too intrusive. People get upset, they blame the people in power. Given that Democrats controlled the House, the Senate, and the Presidency it's no surprise that they bore the brunt of the blame Third, Democrats failed to get the youth back out. The young people who turned o ut to propel President Obama into the White House did n ot come back to protect his agenda. Speaking of not getting voters out, I noticed that le ss than 50 percent of registere d voters in Highlands County voted this time around. Thi s never fails to irritate me. If you didn't vote and don't like how things turned out, look in the mirror to see on e of the people to blame. Whether you're happy or not with the outcome of the elections this week, the nex t few months should prove to be interesting. Am I right and will it be filled with blame and fighting, or will wisdom raise her head and might both parties find a path to doing what's right, together? Oh, and let's enjoy the brief respite from campaign ing while we can. Before w e know it, there will be peop le announcing their run for President in 2012. Complet e with campaign ads. Joy. Not. Laura Ware is a Sebring resi dent. She can be contacted b y e-mail at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Post election ramblings Laura's Look Laura Ware Commissioners should protect our resources E ditor: Over the past six decades, t he American Dream has b een defined as a house in the s uburbs, clean air, greener p astures. Now we are running o ut of greener pastures and m any Americans consider o ver-development to be the f astest-growing threat to their l ocal environment and qualit y of life. Between 1970 and 1990, m ore than 19 million acres of r ural land were developed. E very year 400,000 acres are b eing bulldozed under. And t he rate of development is a ccelerating. The American Farmland T rust reports that an astoundi ng 70 percent of prime or u nique farmland is now in the p ath of rapid development. A llowing the proposed develo pments of the Blue Head R anch, Lake Placid Groves, a nd the Lake Placid Vision O verlay will increase traffic c ongestion, increase depende nce on fossil fuels, worsen a ir and water pollution, decim ate open space and wetl ands, increase flooding, and d estroy wildlife habitat. I gnoring the recommendation o f the DCAto curtail these p roposed developments is not a sound decision for the resid ents, the natural habitat, or t he amazing wildlife of the L ake Placid area. So just who, then, would it b e benefiting? It is interesti ng to note that most of our c ounty commissioners are m embers of water or natural r esources advisory committ ees. How can one serve on these committees and then vote to destroy those same resources? We, as voters, put our trust in our commissioners to protect the very resources that most of us moved here to enjoy. Why, then, would they vote against it? An interesting question, indeed. Dr. Cathy Kirk Lake PlacidCounty should stop wasting moneyEditor: Highlands County will not have the schools or the roads for the new towns in the planning amendments passed by the county commission in September. The Florida Department of Community Affairs, DCA, has rejected the plan, again, for this and other reasons. DCAdismisses much of the amendments as "aspirational," with lofty goals but no real guidelines. There is talk of walkable and bicyclefriendly communities in the existing towns of Highlands County but no specific way to get there. The amendments are vague on protecting lakes, ridge land and aquifer recharge areas. DCAparticularly objects to the "open-ended exception" on protecting Natural Resource and Agricultural areas on the Blue Head Ranch. I believe they are talking about the worker housing provision that would go with the BHR development. There would be a new town and worker housing outside the new town. New towns of North Lake Placid, South Lake Placid, Lake Placid Groves and the Blue Head Ranch development are all included in the plan amendments. In Lake Placid Groves, a narrow bear corridor is supposed to separate black bears from residents. I'm not convinced this will work. Interestingly enough, the Blue Head Ranch is also prime black bear habitat. There isn't a word about separating bears and residents for the BHR development. The Department of Community Affairs has done Highlands County a favor by pointing out the pitfalls in these Amendments and their new towns, which are not needed. Our legislators should overcome their reluctance to re-authorize DCA. Instead of appealing the decision, Highlands County should admit that enough taxpayers'money has been wasted pursuing schemes of corporate landowners. Dale L. Gillis SebringCarlson should stay as commissionerEditor: I am deeply troubled by recent newspaper articles suggesting that Jeff Carlson may be replaced as a county commissioner. Mr. Carlson, a commissioner for two years, has demonstrated strong steadfast courage leading this county through unprecedented difficulties. Although I may not have agreed with his every vote, I respect him for his convictions, ethics, and resolve to serve the taxpayers of Highlands County. We are seating three new county commissioners on Nov. 16, all without experience as elected officials, Our county administrator, Rick Helms, although doing a good job and having experience, is still an interim administrator and may not want to accept a permanent long-term position. Mr. Carlson's mistake is one that many of us have made before and some may make again, but hopefully without the dire consequences suffered by him and his family. Mr. Carlson's act, without doubt, will result in a personal burden that will weigh heavily upon him. It in no way casts any dispersions on his integrity, ethics, or morals, making him questionable serving as our county commissioner. Please do not allow our governor to add insult to Mr. Carlson's personal tragedy or punish us as taxpayers by removing him as a county commissioner. James Wohl SebringColby should replace Carlson on boardEditor: If Gov. Crist removes County Commissioner Jeff Carlson from office, due to charges, a logical and good replacement would be Capt. Preston Colby. Colby certainly is familiar with the workings of county government and is an expert regarding the "Government In The Sunshine" Laws. In my opinion, a petition to the governor should be started immediately, before the "Good Ole Boys" rally behind some unqualified, hand-picked person who owes allegiance to his handlers and not to the people. This is an opportunity we should not take lightly. I have not asked Capt.

Hank Kowalski Lake PlacidRemember Veterans Day on Nov. 11Editor: This is the day that we honor and salute all of the American veterans who, throughout our history, have unselfishly placed their lives on the line for our freedom. Let us never forget our nation's veterans, who if it were not for them, we would not experience the freedoms we enjoy and take for granted. Too many shed their blood and were crippled and maimed and many more paid the ultimate price. Let us instill in our children the importance of patriotism and to be proud of our country's colors, the red, white and the blue, which are the colors of our beloved American flag. Let us not forget the men and women who are currently in uniform. It is they who will and are now answering our country's call. Let them know and feel that we as a country are behind them all the way. Do not forget them when they return to our shores, as they are today's "heroes." May we not let them down as we did for so many of our brothers and sisters who were let down in t he past. Please give all vetera ns and military men and wom en the honor and respect that is due them. As you gather wi th friends and family on th is day, bow your heads and s ay a small prayer of thanks f or all the freedoms we a re enjoying in this gre at America of ours. Rememb er freedom is not free. O ur country has paid a great pri ce for the privilege of freedom In closing don't forget to say "thank you" to a veter an as he helped earn the freedo m you are celebrating today an d everyday. May God bless the vete rans, wherever they may be and God bless America.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK South F lorida Community College h eld a special program F riday, a Day Institute spons ored by the Florida Campus C ompact, devoted to green r evolution, green jobs and g reen service-learning. One speaker was Kevin C ooper, an expert in nano technology and alternate e nergies who currently h eads the Indian River State C ollege Banner Center for E nergy. He has years of p ractical experience in the f ield as well as in research l abs at Motorola and ran his o wn toy company that he m arketed as green. The idea of designing g reen, or with natural forces i n mind, is as old as recorde d civilization, Cooper said. H e pointed to examples t hroughout history. When gardens began a ppearing on skyscraper r oofs in Chicago a few years a go, Cooper said, they simp ly imitated the hanging g ardens of Babylon, which w ere designed to help cool a nd freshen the buildings. Greeks built their homes t urned toward the sun, using p assive solar energy to w arm their houses. Water pollution created h ealth problems in 1450 B .C. that led to religious d ietary laws and the concept o f kosher. The feudal era plague led t o the first public health p olicies. More recently, American a ttitudes began to change a fter President Teddy R oosevelt inaugurated the n ational park system, and e specially in the 1960s with t he publication of "Silent S pring" by Rachel Carson a nd the calamity caused w hen the Cuyahoga River c aught fire in 1969. In reaction, the 1970s was a n active time for environm entalists. The E nvironmental Protection A gency was created, as was E arth Day, Greenpeace, and t he Wilderness Act. Nuclear P ower became a viable altern ative and sewage facilities g rew by 100 percent. The 1980s saw concern w ith ozone depletion and n ow attention is being paid t o climate change. The term "green," Cooper s aid, has been difficult to d efine. It is an abstract u mbrella term meaning r oughly, "meeting the needs o f the present without comp romising the future." Cooper said that the drivi ng forces behind green t echnology are new revenue s ources and job creation. He warned that America i s not alone in exploring the f ield. "We risk losing millions t o other nations that offer m ore serious and sustained r esearch," he said. Florida is a paradox, C ooper added. On the one hand it produces more energy than it currently needs even though Florida ranks third in the nation for overall power consumption and that slows alternative energy development. On the other hand Florida is the largest producer of renewable energy using wind and solar farms and solar thermal power. The largest builder of smart meters is in Bradenton and Florida ranks second in the nation for wind turbine manufacture. Smart meters are the wave of the future, Cooper said. They will be able to track a home's energy use minute by minute, sending in reports to the power company every few minutes. With this information, the utility will be better able to adjust its output to a community's needs in real time. Cooper warned the small, but attentive audience, that real progress is still down the road. Most alternative energy technology is in its infancy. For example, solar power right now is the most expensive way to produce electricity, while nuclear power is the cheapest. "It is an interesting market," Cooper said, "but we will need patience and preparation; creativity and the private sector to move forward." In the short run green technology will cause a loss of jobs, as machinery and electronics do more of today's work. In the long run, however, there will be a growth in jobs that require specialized training and offer more money and better benefits. An individual with an Associates of Science degree in energy management, for example, could expect to make $65,000 at a nuclear power plant. Short term, the quickest way to save energy will be in weatherizing houses and buildings. This should provide a source of many jobs people to audit a home and recommend changes, and the companies to do the changes. Cooper said there would be many opportunities for small businesses from transporting biomass fuel to processing plants, to those installing charge stations in cities and rural rest stops to serve the growing number of electric cars. There will also be a need for individuals versed in data storage, security, analysis and management. Which is one reason the college hosted the green event its goal is to stay up-to-date with changes in the workplace and culture overall. The idea is to be ready with needed education as research turns into practical progress.

Dan Murphy, director of the Economic Development Commission, spoke earlier, explaining to a small audience that the county traditionally produced jobs in the health industries, agriculture and retail. Construction and tourism were contributing to a larger job pool, and the goal was to introduce more manufacturing and biomass production. Alleyne told the audience biomass is not a new idea. Rudolf Diesel, in 1900, ran his prototype automobile on peanut oil. Alleyne said the extension office has experimental fields out by the Avon Park Correctional Institute researching just what kind of biomass plant material would be the most effective and profitable for the county. Corn has already been found to be too expensive and of lesser value as a biofuel than other crops. In addition, livestock feed prices raised significantly as corn was diverted to the energy field. The search is on for a better plant. Brazil, which has surged ahead of the United States in the field of alternate energy sources, uses sugar cane to create ethanol. Sugar cane, however, has draw backs including its inability to withstand the cold. Four plants are being grown out at the prison kenaf, camalina, jathropha and sweet sorghum. Sorghum, Alleyne said, is particularly well suited to Highlands County. All of these plants are fa st growing, drought and co ld tolerant and high in oil co ntent. The biggest drawback to plants as an energy source is the cost of getting them to t he processor and the ethanol to the market. Even a trip of 5 0 miles can wipe out any pro fit. Two processing plants a re planned for the county to deal with this problem. During a question an d answer period Alleyne w as asked if it wasn't dangero us to switch from growing foo d crops to growing a cash cro p. Alleyne referred to t he problems facing citrus at t he moment canker, bla ck spot, greening and low er priced imports among them "Citrus may be removed ," Alleyne conceded, "but w e are not in any way advoca ting planting fewer foo d crops." Alleyne remained upbe at and forward looking. "I a m not talking gloom an d doom," he said. "Highlan ds will one day be blooming. W e are poised to be the bioma ss capital of Florida." He added that this is a good thing because t he United States is the large st energy user of all consum ing approximately 13 millio n barrels of oil a day. Tha t's more than Japan, German y and China combined use in a day. While America represen ts 5 percent of the world's po pulation it uses 25 percent of the world's energy, Alley ne said, whereas Europe, wi th approximately 21 percent of the world's population, us es only 11 percent of the energ y. "Fossil fuel is finite," he said, "and it leaves us open to political threats, but we cou ld be producing 16 billion ga llons of biofuel by 2022." Plant it and pay less News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Kevin Cooper, an expert in energy alternatives and green marketing, spoke at the SFCC University Center Friday. He told students to think creatively, to be patient but persistent. Energy alternatives are the future he said; challenges and opportunities abound.

f ix, he said, was to get their p aperwork out of the way, a nd their oath of office, a head of time. "It is just a matter of p aperwork. Each candidate r eceives a letter, a form and a r equest for a $10 filing fee a fter they are elected. They h ave to fill out the forms and s end them in to the govern or's office before they can t ake office. Since we had a u nique situation, we wanted t o make sure that we got t hem all rounded up and subm itted early," Helms said. "Yeah this was kind of u nusual, but we wanted to i nsure that we did not allow a s ituation for a lack of quorum t o happen," said Helms. Helms also said he had met w ith County Attorney Ross M acbeth and everyone felt t his was the best course of a ction. "This time, because of the s ituation, it was extremely i mportant to make sure e verything is in by the 16th," H elms insisted. An added complication is t he possible removal of C ommissioner Jeff Carlson, w ho was recently charged w ith boating under the influe nce and vessel homicide in t he death of his wife. Sterling Ivey, public information officer for Governor Charlie Christ, stated originally that Carlson was being removed from office soon, but then corrected that and said the governor's office was waiting for all the paperwork to be submitted before the governor would sign an executive order. Carlson is currently vice chair of the commission, and will assume chair responsibilities on the Nov. 16. "That complicates things further, but currently I have not been made aware of any notice of removal or his resignation," Helms said. The elects were also a little astounded to have all the paperwork and oath out of the way early. "Mr. Helms did a bang up job of getting this done correctly," commissioner-elect Richie said. "It was a surprise. I knew that I was coming in to work on some paperwork, but not that I would be taking the oath," Richie said. "I wasn't notified ahead of time. I knew that I was under the Sunshine law when the election results were announced, and I have already submitted formal resignations for some of the committees I sit on, but I wasn't aware that I would take the official oath," Richie laughed. "Yep, took the oath today," commission-elect Don Elwell said Friday. "But I don't think it has sunk in just yet. My understanding is that we have to make sure that we have the quorum necessary to conduct business on the 16th. I do know one thing, in the next 12 days I have a lot of learning to do." There will be a ceremonial swearing in during the Nov. 16 meeting, according to Helms, to complete the process. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, November 7, 2010Page 7A LIMITED SPACE … CALLTODAY! 5 DAYS a week$ 30 Get In Shape Learn Self Defense Improve Self Esteem Make Better Grades MARTIAL ARTS AMERICA471-2467 Best After School Program in SebringFREEPICKUP from: Kindergarten Learning Center, Cracker Trail, Sun-N-Lakes, Woodlawn, Fred Wild, Memorial, Hill Gustat, Sebring Middle/High Located on Kenilworth Sebring*Some Restrictions Apply Life Care, Not Day Care Restaurant & Coffee ShopSebring Square382-2333Mon-Sat 6:30am-2pm Sunday 7am-2pmThe Best Part of Waking Up is Folgers coffee at Dots!

Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Arbuckle Creek clean up was held Oct. 30. The event began at 8 a.m. and ended around 3:30 p.m. when volunteers had collected more than 1,100 pounds of trash. Lunch was prepared by Lee Flocke from the Highlands County Lakes Association and hamburgers and the fixings were purchased from funds through the lakes division of the Highlands County Tourist Development Council. Christy Reed of the Highlands County Recycling Department supplied the trash bags, trash grabbers and the dump truck to haul away 1,140 pounds of trash that was collected. The volunteers launched their canoes and kayaks at the Arbuckle Creek Road boat ramp and paddled down the creek to Spring Lake Park collecting bottles, cans, bait containers and lawn chairs. Ted Budary was instrumental in organizing the event. He contacted many businesses and was able to get sponsorships from Boner Custom Rods, Dee's Restaurant, Kimmel & Knott, American Rivers and the Snack Shack to help in the cause of clearing t he creek of litter. Other organ izations willing to help in t he effort to clean up the cre ek were Highlands Coun ty Board of Coun ty Commission, Highlan ds Soil and Wat er Conservation District an d Spring Lake Improveme nt District. Arbuckle Creek clean up nets 1,100 pounds of trash off their artistic skills to the public. The canvas painting required a $1 donation to help support the students. Trees with apples, a bright blue sky, and smiling faces were on display as the students continued taking donations and promoting their talents. Martile Blackman, festival director, was very pleased with the crowd and all that was going on the day of the festival. "We couldn't have done it without the fire department, the police, all the vendors. I'm just so happy to see it do well, Sebring is such a great place," Blackman said. After a brief hiatus from the month of November, the Fine Arts and Crafts Festival returned with just as many good times and creative visions for artists to display and residents to enjoy.

By WILLLESTER Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama is appealing to victorious Republicans to go along with his plan to extend tax cuts for the middle class, saying the election is over and it's time to down to business. But it's not fair, he says, to make permanent the Bush-era cuts for the wealthiest because that would require the U.S. to borrow $700 billion more to pay for it. "The campaign season is over," the president said Saturday in his weekly radio and online address. "And it's time to focus on our shared responsibilities and work together." Obama's long-standing position has been that individuals with incomes less than $200,000 a year and couples making less than $250,000 should continue to enjoy the tax cuts enacted during George W. Bush's presidency but that those making more should return to the higher rates before Bush took office. The cuts, enacted in 2001 and 2003, are due to expire Dec. 31. "We'd be digging ourselves into an ev en deeper fiscal hole and passing the burd en onto our children," he said, referring to pe rmanent extension of the tax cuts for wealt hier Americans. Republicans said this week they strong ly favor renewing all the Bush tax cuts, giv en the struggling economy. The White House said this past week aft er stinging midterm elections for Democra ts that Obama is willing to consider a compr omise for a oneor two-year extension of a ll the tax cuts, even for families earning mo re than $250,000 a year. Obama has invited Republican an d Democratic congressional leaders to me et with him on the economy and jobs after he returns from his 10-day trip to Asia. Sen.-elect Marco Rubio of Florida said in the Republican address that lawmakers ow e it to the voters to make a course correctio n from government spending and deficits. Obama to GOP: Let's extend middle-class tax cuts

Brees began channeling t hat frustration by taking a m ore active role in combati ng youth financial illiteracy. The statistics he cites are troubling: The average high school senior can answer only about half of basic financial knowledge questions correctly. Although 93 percent of Americans believe all high school students should be required to take a financial education class, only four states require at least a semester-long course in personal finances. Only four in 10 adults understand how to properly calculate how much they'll need to reach their retirement savings goals. Yet for most average earners, Social Security will replace only about 40 percent of pre-retirement earnings. More than one in 10 Americans don't use banks at all, despite the financial advantages they provide. As you might expect, Brees is taking action.

Financial Football combines the NFL's structure and rules with hundreds of questions of varying difficulty designed to test students'financial knowledge.

By ANNE D'INNOCENZIO APRetail Writer NEW YORK Americans took a pause in shopping in October, leaving retailers with their weakest peformance since A pril as unsually warm weather depressed their appetite for cold w eather items. Stores were forced to discount more on coats and hats to get shoppers to spend. And even as the weather cools, discounts w ill be necessary to keep pulling shoppers in amid high unemployment, analysts said. The International Council of Shopping Centers index measuring revenue at stores open at least a year showed a 1.6 percent increase, the weakest performance since April's 0.8 percent increase. October's figure represented a slowdown from September, when it rose 2.6 percent. Bright spots among retailers reporting revenue figures T hursday were Costco W holesale Corp. and Limited Brands Inc., both of which reported bigger increases than W all Street analysts expected. Macy's Inc., helped by tailoring merchandise to local markets, also had a decent performance, outshining rivals such as J.C. Penney Co. and Kohl's Corp., both of which suffered sales declines. Target Corp. posted a small gain that's slightly above Wall Street estimates. And Gap Inc. posted a surprise gain. Luxury chains like Saks Inc. continued to do well as wealthy shoppers are back to spending, albeit cautiously. "It was a promotionally driven month," said Jharonne Martis, director of consumer research at Thomson Reuters. "Warm w eather hurt sales of fall merchandise. We expect discounting is going to be necessary to drive holiday sales." The figures are based on revenue at stores open at least a year. That's considered a key indicator of a retailer's health because it measures growth at existing locations and excludes new or closed stores. The big factor depressing October sales was the unusually warm weather, said Mike Niemira, chief economist at International Council of Shopping Centers. He estimated that depressed October sales by one percentage point. For retailers, the good news is that heavy discounting may not hurt third-quarter profits because October is the least important month for the period, according to Ken Perkins, president of RetailMetrics, a research firm. Macy's and Limited raised their earnings outlook. Gap offered a surprising strong profit outlook that topped analysts' estimates. October is typically slow because it's between back-toschool season and the Christmas season, but shoppers took more of a breather this year. That made stores push discounts even more to entice consumers, who are buying even closer to when they need the items in the wake of the Great Recession. Shoppers are expected to remain tight-fisted with unemployment stuck near 10 percent. That's why many more stores than last year are pushing discounts on holiday gifts earlier, even before Halloween. Americans are also being bombarded with holiday ads on TV. Best Buy Co., for example, started its holiday TV ad campaign Monday; last year, it began Nov. 11. A report Thursday from the Labor Department underscored the job market's weakness. It showed the number of people seeking jobless benefits jumped sharply last week, after two straight weeks of declines. Against this background, warehouse clubs and discounters are holding up better than stores in middle price ranges. Costco said Thursday that its revenue at stores open at least a year climbed 6 percent in October as international results improved in part because of the weaker dollar. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected a smaller 4.6 percent increase. Target posted a 1.7 percent gain in October, slightly better than the 1.5 percent estimate from analysts. CEO Gregg Steinhafel said in a statement the results were at the low end of the company's expectations because of softness in the first half of the month. Steinhafel noted traffic is healthy in stores, and the company is seeing essential items sell better than discretionary items. Target, which is counting on a much-publicized 5 percent discount to store credit and debit card holders, said it expects revenue at stores open at least a year to increase in the low-single-digit percentage in November. Limited, the operator of Victoria's Secret, Bath and Body Works and other businesses, reported a 9 percent gain, well above the 6.1 percent forecast. Gap had a 2 percent rise in October revenue at stores open at least a year; analysts had expected a 2.5 percent decline. Department stores had a mixed performance. Macy's posted a 2.5 percent increase, though it said that sales in the beginning of the month were weak because of the warm weather. Analysts had expected a 1.6 percent gain. Terry Lundgren, Macy's chairman, president and CEO, said. Page 2BNews-SunSunday, November 7, 2010www.newssun.com E.O.

Special to the News-SunSouth Florida Community C ollege garnered second p lace during the FACC I nstitutional Effectiveness P lanning and Professional D evelopment Commission's E xemplary Practice Awards in O ctober for its Data Analysis G roup (DAG). "Exemplary practices are i mportant for community coll eges because they highlight i nnovate practices, technolog ies, and processes necessary t o stay completive in the field o f higher education and bring a wareness to issues, processes a nd programs that are critical t o the mission of community c olleges," said Juanita Scott, c hair, FACC Institutional E ffectiveness and P rofessional Development C ommission. "The competition this year was truly tough. There were many great new ideas and practices from all of the participants about research and professional development. The DAG process presented an innovative way to gather research data and make it available to those who use it." As part of the awards submission process, Dr. Chris van der Kaay, director, adult education and a member of DAG, gave a presentation to the FACC Institutional Effectiveness and Professional Development Commission members on why DAG was developed and how it assists SFCC. DAG was developed in fall 2008 to analyze data from different state and national sources and institutional reports. The committee then provides the data to various college stakeholders and departments and helps facilitate improvement activities and procedures at SFCC. "DAG doesn't rely on additional resources, only those that are currently available," Dr. van der Kaay said. "This proves to be cost effective. Another unique thing about DAG is that while all community colleges collect this data, most do it through their Institutional Research and Effectiveness departments. "We have developed a group of people that come from each college division to determine individual needs." "As an educational institution we are required to use data and to use it properly," Dr. van der Kaay said. "Our goal is to foster an institutionwide culture of data informed decision-making and continuous improvement." "DAG serves as a very essential function to SFCC because it evaluates all of the major assessment findings at the college and presents the information to the experts in the corresponding departments and programs," said Dr. Leana Revell, vice president, educational and student services. "This helps keep the college informed about what we are doing right and what we need to improve on for our students."

SFCC also served as a host college for the convention, introducing guest speakers and managing a fundraising penny war table. During her campaign for president of FNSA, Jones said, "collaboration, not competition is the foundation on which FNSA stands." Prior to the convention, the FNSAissued a Florida Fit Nurse challenge for attendees to carry a pedometer and calculate the number of steps they took during a 28-day period. FNSAcalculated that over 900 million steps were taken, with SFCC as the highest contributor.

E ach year, ACCTpresents f ive awards in five regions o f the United States, as well a s five national awards. Christensen came to S FCC seven years ago, foll owing a distinguished, 22y ear career in the U.S. N avy. As an educator, C hristensen has developed n ew approaches to teaching d ifficult subjects and has i nfused both his traditional c lassroom and online course s with cutting-edge techn ology and new methods of c ommunication. He has shared his a pproaches with SFCC and o ther community college i nstructors through Webb ased workshops, at the a nnual conferences of the F lorida Association of C ommunity Colleges ( FACC), and at national c onference of Desire To L earn (D2L). As an administrator, C hristensen has been activel y involved in developing t he standards of knowledge a nd ability students should p ossess upon completing g eneral education courses. He helped create an A cademic Master Plan that d etermines how finances are s pent on upgrading technolo gy throughout the college's f our locations; a new strateg ic plan that outlines the c ollege's goals for the next s ix years; and a new Quality E nhancement Plan (QEP) t hat will help freshmen navi gate the first year of coll ege. He is now assisting with the college's process of being reaffirmed for its accreditation by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). This year, Christensen became an official Open Textbook Advocate/Trainer with the Community College Collaborative (CCOTC). Three years ago, Christensen adopted and modified open textbooks for his physics classes, thereby reducing each student's textbook costs from $222 to $13. He shares his knowledge of open textbooks through national online discussion boards and other forums. Additionally, Christensen is a member of the Activity Based Physics Faculty Institute (ABPFI) and is a reader for the Educational Testing Service (ETS) advanced placement examinations in physics. SFCC's Student Government Association (SGA) named him the FullTime Faculty Member of the Year for 2004-05 and Instructor of the Year for 2006. In 2005, he received the SFCC President's Award for Employee of the Year, and in 2006 he received the National Institute of Staff and Organizational Develop (NISOD) Excellence Award. "I am deeply humbled and honored by this award," Christensen said. "It is such a privilege to serve our college and to know that every day I am helping to achieve our shared vision of enriching our communities through education, one life at a time." Williams is an SFCC alum who served seven years on the SFCC District Board of Trustees (1976-83) and was a founding member and president of the SFCC Foundation, Inc. In 1983, Williams became a charter member of the Community College Coordinating Council, which evolved into the State Board of Community Colleges. "I want to be part of building Florida into the top-ranked United States educational system. "I support excellent educational opportunities for everyone, regardless of his or her position in life," he said at the time. Williams served on the State Board for 18 years longer than any other charter member and was its chairman twice before retiring in 2000. That same year, the Florida Association of Community Colleges (FACC) recognized Williams'dedication to community colleges by presenting him with its highest honor, the LeRoy Collins Award. "I believe in the community college system," Williams said. "After high school, many students cannot afford to go to universities. With community colleges, all students have the opportunity to earn an associate degree or learn vocational skills." "We are very proud of Winkie Williams and Erik Christensen for representing our college with distinction," said Dr. Norman L. Stephens Jr., SFCC president. "It is rare for a college to have one award recipient in a given year since there are over 1,200 members colleges in the association and only five regions. "It is quite unique and perhaps unprecedented for any college to have two recipients of these regional awards. We congratulate both of these fine individuals and thank them for their exemplary service to our college." SFCC garners two awards from the Association of Community College Trustees Wendell Williams Erik Christensen Did YouKNOW?In Florida, the bicycle is legally defined as a vehicle. Bicyclists using a public roadway are considered operators of motor vehicles and are responsible for observing all traffic laws. With few exceptions, there is only one road and it is up to motorists and bicyclists to treat each other with care and respect. Adherence to the law is the foundation of respect.

The board also adopted p rocedures for considering r equests from Florida's 11 p ublic universities for new f ees and flat-rate tuition p lans during a meeting T hursday at the University of F lorida in Gainesville. Things got tense when S tate University System C hancellor Frank Brogan b riefed one of the board's c ommittees on Florida State U niversity's contract with a d igital film company that p lans to open its own school i n West Palm Beach. It would b e a potential competitor for F lorida Atlantic University, w hich offers similar courses. FSU President Eric Barron a ssured board members the d eal currently says his univ ersity's elite film school w ill only provide advice to D igital Domain. Florida Atlantic President M ary Jane Saunders responde d that the two-year $ 800,000 contract calls for m ore than that. Florida State w ould develop curriculum f or the private, for-profit s chool, she said. Brogan said the dispute is a n example of why he plans t o draft regulations to prevent o r resolve proximity conflicts i n the future. "No one is trying to squash e ntrepreneurial spirit," B rogan told the board, but he s aid such conflicts shouldn't be handled in a "seat-of-thepants" manner. Board Chairwoman Ava Parker of Jacksonville said the panel needs to do more than just encourage university officials to talk. The digital film issue is one of three proximity disputes Brogan has been refereeing. The others involve the University of Florida's proposed food and agricultural sciences program at MiamiDade College near Florida International University; and Florida A&M University's planned branch specializing in rural health care in Crestview, about 40 miles from Pensacola's University of West Florida. University of Florida President Bernie Machen assured the panel that the issue in his school's case is one of communication and is being resolved. West Florida President Judy Bense said she doesn't have a problem with Florida A&M's planned pharmacy program at Crestview but was surprised to discover the Legislature included nursing and other health care programs also offered by her school in its appropriation for the new facility. "The other programs we'll need to collaborate on," Bense said. "We'll work it through." She said such proximity conflicts often are caused not by the universities but by lawmakers. "The larger issue is a political one," Bense said. "I know the political game." Bense said it's happened before to West Florida, such as when the Legislature transferred the smaller school's Panama City branch to Florida State. "It was sort of an antiUWF thing," Bense said. Florida A&M President James Ammons told the board his school wasn't part of any scheme to harm West Florida and said he'd work with Bense to resolve their remaining issues. The board's new fee and tuition regulations will provide frameworks for the universities to submit proposals for approval in February. Under what's known as block-rate tuition, students are charged the same regardless of how many courses they take. The concept has drawn opposition because it would increase costs for students who take less than a full load. The University of Florida is considering the approach as a way to encourage students to get their degrees sooner. Other schools have shown little interest. "We don't know who will; we don't know if anyone will" seek approval, said board member Tico Perez of Orlando. The board also agreed to consider in January a threeyear pilot program that would allow higher, market-rate tuition for a limited number of graduate programs. Rates would more closely match those charged by private schools and public universities in other states. Those proposals also will be considered in February.

Find it at www.shopnwf.org.Find state and regional backyard bird guides at www.songbirdgarden.com.Learn how to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count at www.birdsource.org.Learn more about participating in a Christmas Bird Count by contacting your local Audubon Society Chapter: www.audubon.org/bird/cbc/. Check with your local cooperative extension office to learn more about native plants and creating a backyard habitat for the birds in your region.Have your garden certified as a wildlife habitat by visiting the National Wildlife Federation website at www.nwf.org. Find out which species are visiting your feeders with the Bird Identifier at www.scottswildbirdfood.com. Purple Finch The Purple Finch is a migratory bird that would be a colorful addition to any garden. It winters along the Pacific Coast and from central Texas to northern Florida. FAMILYFEATURES M ost people could recognize a Robin or a Cardinal if they saw one but what about a Northern Flicker or a Lazuli Bunting? Even with several hundreds of bird species in North America year-round, many backyard birders are unfamiliar with some of the birds specific to their region. If you'd like to meet some unique feathered friends, follow these simple tips on how to attract them to your own backyard.CreateaFriendlyHabitatBirds have simple needs: food, water, shelter and places to raise young. By establishing these elements in your outdoor living space, you can make beautiful birds in your region feel right at home. In addition, incorporating these basic elements can help certify your backyard as a wildlife habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. WaterBirds need a dependable supply of fresh, clean water for drinking and bathing. Placing a birdbath, especially one with a trickle or fountain, makes your garden a very desirable spot. John Robinson, Scotts chief ornithologist, recommends using a low, shallow birdbath, where birds normally find water. "Birds will naturally be attracted to water sources found at the ground level even more than those placed on pedestals. This is especially true if the source is in the shade to keep the water cooler," he says. Also, if you have a pond or stream, remember to add some flat rocks where birds can perch while drinking or bathing.ShelterBirds seek shelter at different heights. Make your garden more hospitable by growing vines, shrubs and trees. Evergreens provide excellent winter shelter, as well as protection from cats and other predators. Cavities in a dead or dying tree make great nesting spots. If there's one in your yard, let it stand unless safety is a concern.NestingMany bird species will use the same plants that provide shelter as nesting spots. You can put up nesting boxes that will be used by species such as bluebirds, chickadees, wrens, woodpeckers and even owls. FeedWildBirdsWild birds spend most of their time foraging for food such as insects, fruits, nectar and seeds. Many birds may require up to 10,000 calories a day and enjoy sampling a wide variety of foods. Therefore, providing numerous feeding options is the best way to keep them returning to your backyard habitat. Growing a variety of plants that bloom and produce fruit, seeds or nuts at different times throughout the year attracts even more birds to your backyard. Many perennials, grasses, vines, shrubs and trees also are food sources. Naturally, native birds thrive on native plants, so selecting regional beauties that produce seeds, berries, or nectar increases food sources as well as shelter and nesting materials. Check with a local nursery to get advice on what plants are native to your area. To supplement their diet, fill feeders with high quality wild bird food. Not all birds enjoy the same seeds. Birds found in one area of the country may be different from birds in other regions. Agreat way to ensure the birds in your area are receiving the nutrition needed is to look for region-specific wild bird food, like Scotts Songbird Selections Regional Bird Blends. To learn more about bringing unique birds to your backyard, sign up for the Backyard Birding e-newsletter at www.scottswildbirdfood.com. Pyrrhuloxia The Pyrrhuloxia is a songbird that lives in the open desert scrub of southwestern United States. Being a thickbilled, reddish bird with a crest, it marginally resembles its close relative, the Northern Cardinal. Red-breasted Nuthatch It is easy to distinguish the Red-breasted Nuthatch because of its white face and throat. Its breeding range extends from southeastern Alaska south to the Carolinas.Northeast: Purple Finch, Tufted Titmouse Southeast: Red-bellied Woodpecker, Carolina Chickadee Midwestern: Northern Flicker, Red-breasted Nuthatch Southwestern: Pyrrhuloxia, Lazuli Bunting Western: Spotted Towhee, Mountain ChickadeeBirdsinYourRegionHere are just a few of the unique regional birds.

DearAbby: A woman driving the car ahead of me was swerving and weaving in and out of the next lane. She would slow down, then speed up, and I thought she might have been drunk. As I pulled up beside her, I realized she was using sign language to communicate with her passenger. She would turn her head toward the passenger, signing with both hands and ignoring her responsibilities of being a good driver. Is this legal? That woman was driving recklessly, and I don't think she should have been driving if she couldn't pay attention to the road. Safe Driver in Lexington, S.C. DearSafe Driver: According to the Beverly Hills, Calif., Police Department, the use of sign language is legal as long as it doesn't interfere with safe driving. The state of California has a basic speed law that states: "No person shall drive a vehicle upon a state highway at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent having due regard for weather, visibility, the traffic on, and the surface and width of, the highway, and in no event which endangers the safety of persons or property." In the case you have described, the person who was signing to her passenger was in violation of this law. I'm sure your state has similar regulations. DearAbby: When my father-in-law, "Herb," comes to visit, he rummages through our personal belongings whether they be in the garage, basement or storage closet. He feels compelled to "fix" anything he thinks needs fixing or rearranging. I am certain Herb thinks he's being helpful, but we have addressed this issue with him many times and we're always met with defensiveness and lack of understanding. He justifies his actions by listing all of the good deeds he does for us some of which are legit. My husband and I are at a loss. We love Herb and want him to be a part of our lives and the lives of our children, but this makes us very uncomfortable. At times, we even feel violated in our own home. Where do we go from here? Herb's Family in Wisconsin DearFamily: Your fatherin-law may feel so comfortable at your place that he has it confused with his place. From here, you install a lock on every door in your home that you do not want Herb to enter without supervision. And so he won't be bored, plan ahead and consider setting aside some projects that do need fixing, so he won't be sitting around with nothing to do that makes him fee l useful. DearAbby: I recently had a dinner party in my condo. One of my guests brought along his new roommate, whom I had never met. During the evening, the young man kep t placing his foot on my coffe e table and rubbing the sole o f his shoe over the edge and corner. I didn't say anything because I didn't want to make him feel uncomfortable. After the party ended, I realized my coffee table had been damaged by what he did. What is a polite way to te ll someone to remove his or h er foot from my table without causing a scene or embarras sing him? Mitch in Chicag o DearMitch: Offer the pe rson a footstool or something to place under the offending foot that would protect your table. Or, take an even more direct approach and say to the person in a calm manner "Please don't put your foot there because the finish on my coffee table is easily damaged."

Our veterans have probably seen our f lag in worse condition than t his.They've been on the battlefields of m any wars where it may not have been p ossible to retire their old friend and r eplace it with a crisp new one. Yet, as they awakened to another d awn and saw their threadbare banner, i t heartened them and brought hope. Hope for a better world, protection for our freedom and loved ones; and, hope for a safe return. No wonder our national anthem sings out, "our flag was still there." That caused me to think a little deeper about the sad state of our nation. Perhaps that resident displays the worn flag to remind me and you that we, too, are on a battlefield. It is a battlefield of ideologies and values. On the one hand are those Biblical ones that our nation was founded upon.On the other are those that would dare to tear apart and destroy our foundation of godliness. The Bible warns in Isaiah 5:20, NKJV, "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter." Sounds like the daily headlines in the news. For the sake of every American veteran who has served or is now serving, for the sake of our families and theirs', let's stand firm on the rock of our God and put actions to our faith. For he promises in 2 Chronicles 7: 14: "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." Our nation may feel tattered and torn like that great symbol of our freedom. But God Almighty is our hope today as he was when our nation was founded. Let's pray it won't be long before we see our flag and our values restored and resurrected again. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent and an award-winnin g writer. Tattered, torn, yet hopeful we stand Pause And Consider Jan Merop Question: Our son's fifthg rade teacher has recently s ent home notes to the effect t hat our little darling isn't p aying attention and is missi ng homework assignments. W hen I asked what in-school c onsequences he receives, I w as basically told that he r eceives none unless I specifi cally so request. In other words, unless t eachers inform parents of p roblems (which doesn't relia bly happen), the problems g o unpunished. When I hear of a problem, p rivileges are taken away for a week or more, and my son k nows that if he brings home a report card with a bad g rade or behavior report, p rivileges are removed for t he next grading period. Is t his appropriate, and what c an I do to get the school to d o their part? Answer: To your first q uestion, yes, what you're d oing in response to being n otified of problems at s chool is appropriate. You're m y kind of parent, in fact, all t he more so because you have t he courage to hold your son a ccountable in a culture of e xcuses. To your second question what can you do to get the teacher to do her part? my answer is "probably nothing." In all too many of America's public schools, and for a variety of reasons, classroom discipline is a farce. It's not that teachers don't want to discipline; it's that they are specifically prohibited from doing anything effective when a child misbehaves (In this context, I use the term to encompass both academic and behavioral misdeeds). The problem (this should surprise no one) is lawyers and the law. For one thing, a school can be sued if a child is punished for behavior that is later discovered to be symptomatic of a disorder with which the child is supposedly afflicted. So if Johnny is punished in November for exposing himself to the class at recess, and the following March a psychologist determines Johnny has childhood bipolar disorder, Johnny's parents can sue school officials for victimizing Johnny. No, that was not lifted from a Joseph Heller novel; that is the real deal. As a consequence of institutionalized insanity of that sort, one of a principal's primary responsibilities is to keep the lawyers at bay. So, playing it safe, more and more of America's public schools are "discipline free zones." Another aspect of the problem is that teachers report problems at great risk to themselves. Fifty years ago, parents were unequivocal in their support of teacher authority. All too many of today's parents, when they are informed of a problem, rise to their children's defense. Sadly, all too many of today's principals, when parents get upset, will not back their teachers. It's that "L-word" thing again. Needless to say, children are no dummies. Even the child with a serious learning disability is quick to figure out that a school's discipline policy is a sham and that his parents are desperate to believe that he is incapable of dirty deeds (lest they have to deal with the horrifying implication that they are not perfect parents). And round and round we go. As your son's teacher told you, you can specifically empower the school to punish,him for not turning in assignments, not paying attention in class, and so on, but that begs the question: What, in the school's view, constitutes punishment? The teacher may not be permitted, even with your permission, to do anything more draconian than deprive your son of a smiley face sticker at the end of the day. In short, this is probably a losing battle on your part. Just do your duty at home and be thankful you won't be raising a child 20 years from now. This isn't going to get better any time soon.

Clyde Beatty Circus coming to Avon Park Special to the News-Sun AVON PARK The Top Dog winner at last year's Wiener Dog Race was Baby Daisy, owned by Dylan Feickert of Sebring. Dylan reports that Daisy will definitely be back to defend her title. Daisy is now 4 years old and according to Dylan's mom, Rachel, Daisy has gained some weight since last year's race. But Dylan is training her and hopes to have her in running shape in time for the Nov. 13 race. Last year one handler held the dog at the starting line and another waited at the finish line. This year Ridge Area Arc will have starting chutes that look like dog houses. All five gates will open at the same time. When told about the chutes and asked how this might effect Daisy's time, Rachel said, "I think the new starting chutes will hurt her time because she's not used to it but Dylan is working with her." Rachel shared their trick to getting Daisy to run is to have Dylan at the finish line with a treat in his pocket to help her focus on him. Rachel said, "I think Arc having a WienerFest will be a lot of fun and a great way to raise money for a good cause." Dogs are expected from across the state of Florida. Ridge Area Arc's WienerFest, which is free to the public, is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13 at the Avon Park Memorial Field. The WienerFest is sponsored by David and Doris Magowan, Fizzion, the News-Sun, Alan Jay Automotive, Citrus Animal Clinic, Dog Designs by Dana, and Duffer's Sports Grille. The Wiener Walk (parade) will start at 11 a.m. with the Wiener Dog Races following at noon. There will be lots of food, starting at 8 a.m. with breakfast served by the Avon Park Knights of Columbus, to hot dogs, pulled pork, pop corn and more available from various vendors. Activities include a bounce house, rock climbing wall, arts and crafts, flea market, and items for pets and their owners. Event organizers report that no other pets are allowed in the festival.

The exhibition features images of the Florida landscape and local cattle ranches including the Smoak and Hendrie ranches in Highlands County, which work to protect the black bear population, and the Adam's ranch in Osceola County and the Lightsey ranch in Polk County, which have won awards for their environmental stewardship and conservation works. "Nearly 1/5 of the state is covered by cattle ranches," Ward said. "These ranches are important for our agriculture, to ensure clean water for the everglades, and to provide important wildlife habitat. Through my images, I celebrate the beautiful natural and cultural resources of our state that without our proactive protection may not exist for our future generations," Ward said. The exhibit is sponsored by Jeanmarie and Donald Appelquist and Martin Realty F-L-Aparticipating with Cabela's Trophy Properties. Ward is an eighth-generation Floridian from a pioneering ranching family. An ecologist by training, he aims to promote conservation of natural environments and cultural legacies through his photographs. As a graduate student, he wrote Conservation Photography, the first thesis on the emerging field. His first book, "The Edge of Africa," the result of a three-year project with the Smithsonian Institution, received international acclaim and was the basis for a presidential reception with the United Nations. Ward regularly produces stories for newspapers and magazines, including Smithsonian, GEO, National Wildlife, Africa Geographic, Nature Conservancy and Outdoor Photographer. For his recent documentary of Florida ranchlands, Ward was featured in the June 2008 issue of Popular Photography as one of three photographers working to save vanishing America. Between international assignments, he is focused on Florida conservation issues and has begun several longterm projects celebrating our state's vanishing natural heritage. Ward is a founding member of the International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP) and founded the Legacy Institute for Nature and Culture (LINC) in 2004 to promote Florida conservation through the necessary collaboration of science and art.

Some children will reply "From the grocery store," while others may say "from farms." Thanks to programs such as Ag Venture, where every third-grader in H ighlands County visits the fairg rounds to participate in agricultura l activities, kids are getting an e ducation about their surroundings. S ince agriculture is one of H ighlands County's leading indust ries, making sure our kids know a bout it is important. Every person, whether young or o ld, is connected to agriculture. S ince we all eat food and wear c lothing, we each reap the benefits o f this industry. Young people need t o have a good understanding of a griculture since it affects them in t heir every day lives. Ag Venture is a hands-on, exciting program that i ntrigues kids and allows them to l earn while enjoying themselves. S tudents from public, private and e ven home schools all enjoy this l ocal program. Participating in this event is p erhaps as exciting for the presenters as it is for the kids. Hundreds of volunteers come out every year to get involved in this worthy learning experience. The Highlands Soil and Water Conservation District supports Ag Venture by sponsorship. And employees from the Highlands County Parks & Natural Resources Department participate by manning the Soil and Water booth which teaches the kids about watersheds and pollution and the water cycle. Kids walk away with a good visual on the consequences of not keeping our watersheds clean and a terrarium they can take home that demonstrates the water cycle. There are two different tracks for the youths. The classes go on one track or the other, not both. But each one features interesting agricultural presentations. One of the stations is complete with alligators where students learn about alligators in the wild and how these creatures are farmed commercially. They actually get to touch a baby alligator. Of course, where there are animals, kids are usually happy and the farm animal station is always popular. Students get to look at different types of farm animals and they learn what it takes to care for them. And what kid wouldn't want to get out of school for the day and make a milkshake? At the strawberry station, these students are shown how strawberries are grown. They also plant a strawberry plant and make a milkshake. And speaking of plants, the caladium station shows kids how caladiums are grown and they get to plant a bulb to take home. All of the stations are unique and include hands-on activities for the students. Other stations include beef, bees, citrus, dairy, forestry, grapes, horticulture, poultry and vegetables. There is something that is sure to peak every student's interest. As for our staff, working the Soil and Water station is a great opportunity to teach kids about their environment and its importance. But perhaps the best part is watching them get excited about creating their own terrarium to take home. Some of the kids get so excited and ask, "We get to take this home with us?" They take a great deal of pride in making their creations and the interaction is wonderful. It is also encouraging to watch them see and understand how polluting the land is affecting our lakes and water bodies by observing the Enviroscape. As the y watch the colorful mock pollution (Jello or Kool-Aide) being sprinkled over the watershed and the rain washing it into the water, the y really "get it." The sounds of "ewww, gross," and "I'm not swimming in that water," make us realize they are truly getting a good understanding of just how much harm can come from a bit of litter or overuse of chemicals. Perhaps, back in the "good old days" it wouldn't have been neces sary to have such a program to teach kids about the importance o f agriculture since there were more farms then. But in today's world, many kids aren't exposed to the agricultural world at all. Our future generation may truly not know where butter or cheese comes from. If we want our children to take the reigns on the future, isn't it important to teach them about where our food, cloth ing and shelter comes from? Ag Venture is a wonderful program, but it's up to each one of u s to continue to educate our childre n and grandchildren about the impo rtance of agriculture.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID It was a contest for exactly two plays, as a fumbled snap and an incomplete pass had the Green Dragons at third-and-ten on their own 36. But from that point forward, there was little Lake Placid did wrong on their way to a 60-0 demolishing of the visiting Griffins of Gateway Charter. A.J. Gayle would carry five times for 48 yards on this opening drive, culminating in a 13-yard touchdown run, and the two-point conversion for the early 8-0 lead. After the Griffin's opening play saw a five-yard loss, a fumble was pounced up by Ernie Edwards to get the ball back at the Gateway 24. Quarterback Kirk Veley found Andre Wilson beyond the defense on the next play and it was 16-0 after the Gayle conversion. Things would snowball as a Griffin drive would stall at their own 40 and after Veley scrambled for 29 yards, he again connected with Wilson on an 11-yard score. Edwards pushed in the two-point conversion and it was 24-0 with still near ly four minutes left in the ope ning quarter. And in perhaps a fittin g example of the mismatc h, Gateway's first play on t he next drive was an interce ption, though it was call ed back on a roughing the pas ser penalty. Yet, the very next pla y, Nevada Weaver picked o ff the pass and returned it to t he Griffin 26. From there, Edwards an d Ryan Blount shared carri es before Edwards punched it in from seven yards out. By KATE ROWLAND Special to the News-SunSEBRING It took Sebring t hree quarters to kick into g ear, but with Tenoroc leading 1 4-7 at halftime, the Blue S treaks lived up to their nickn ame in the second half and o utscored the Titans 27-0 for a 34-14 victory in the final D istrict 9-3Aaction of the s eason at Firemen's Field on F riday. Senior Evan Lewis a ccounted for the only B lue Streak offense in t he first three quarters w ith a touchdown on a s lant pass from senior q uarterback Matt G rubb. Trailing by a touchd own in the third q uarter, the Blue S treaks (7-2 overall and 4-2 d istrict) began to show signs o f life in the chilly fourth. Zack Bullock's touchdown w ith 8:54 left in the game, and a n errant extra point kick, put S ebring just one point behind T enoroc at 14-13. "The first half was pretty s loppy for us," said senior Zac M orris. "We we're down a t ouchdown. But we picked it u p and did what we did in p ractice. We had confidence a ll the way. We persevered. "I'll miss my teammates. T hey're my family. Some of t hem I've been playing footb all with since we were seven y ears old." Sebring did not qualify for t he state playoffs but their i mprovement over the season g ives them plenty to be proud of. The Blue Streak defense was responsible for two Tenoroc turnovers and racked up four sacks in the game. On the other side of the ball, quarterback Matt Grubb, remained calm under pressure. "Matt is a great kid," head coach Jared Hamlin said. "He's a smart kid and he makes great decisions for us. Each and every season he's gotten better." Grubb completed 13 passes in 17 attempts for 251 yards and four touchdowns. On the receiving end of Grubb's on-target tosses were sophomore Jake Bryan, with three catches for 43 yards; senior Evan Lewis with four catches for 64 yards and two touchdowns; senior Jaquan Williams caught four passes for 85 yards and a score; and senior Bullock got the most out of two catches with 59 yards and a touchdown. Hamlin said 10 different players carried the ball for the Blue Streaks, with sophomore Devaris Faulk leading the way with seven carries for 63 yards and a touchdown. Junior Damion Thompson had eight carries for 34 yards; and junior Benji Toney carried the ball twice for 36 yards. "We had 477 yards in the game," Hamlin said. "We got 226 yards rushing and 251 passing. I'm very proud with the way we finished off this game tonight, coming back from 14 points down. Now we're going to get focused and come back next week against Avon Park." Sebring will miss the playoffs for the seventh consecutive year due to early district losses to 3Apowerhouses Lake Wales and Winter Haven, but the Blue Streaks have one more game to play Friday, Oct. 12, on the road against perennial rival Avon Park at Joe Franza Stadium. Hamlin couldn't recall how long it's been since Sebring By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK The Red Devils ended their run for the state playoffs Friday night at Joe Franza Stadium with a 27-7 loss to Tampa Catholic, who moved ahead of Avon Park into second in the final district standings. "The effort was there, but the score was not," said Andy Bonjokian after the game. "They are a good football team. They played heads up football and they came out on top." The Devils racked up 10 penalties for the night for a total of 60 yards, several at key junctures of the game. "We shot ourselves in the foot a couple of times with stupid penalties," Bonjokian said. "We showed that we could play with good teams, we just didn't stick with it," he added. Tampa Catholic struggled with injuries, losing star running back Hunter Joyner, who averages 64 yards per game and has already committed to the University of Florida, to an ankle injury after just four carries. "We have faced injuries all season," said Tampa Catholic's Head Coach Bob Henriquez. "Losing Hunter was a big loss, but it doesn't seem like the injury is that bad. We had several young players step up to fill the gaps of injuries over the year, and it has worked out the second half of the season." Crusader freshman quarterback Chivarsky Corbett completed 12 of 16 attempts for a total of 127 yards passing. "Corbett is a solid player. He is an amazing quarterback for a freshman. Unshakable," Henriquez said about the 6'3" 185 hurler. "This is our 14th year in the playoffs, and Corbett has had a lot to d o with that." Avon Park's offense rum bled for just 119 yards tota l, the Crusaders defense hol ding firm. "It was the stupid pena lties," Bonjokian said. "W e struggled with that throug hout the game, and it kill ed our momentum." Avon Park lost one touc hdown late in the first half of the game to a holding pena lty, and ended up leaving at the half down 14-7. Defensively, the Devi ls were able to shut down the ir running game, holdin g Tampa Catholic to just 5 7 yards on the ground. Avon Park stays at hom e next week, facing Sebring in the last game of their seaso n with the cross-county show down. "We have to just get read y for next week and put th is behind us," Bonjokian sai d. "Several of the guys a re looking forward to Sebrin g, and have been all year." By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comWith the likes of Connor Bauer, Caitlyn Moulds and Amanda Kennedy gone to graduation, the 2010 Cross Country season could be seen as somewhat of a rebuilding year for the Blue Streaks. And though it was a holdover from last year that served as the lone advancement from Thursday's District 6-3A meet in Punta Gorda, there was a definite sense of acheivement with what the team has built this season. Although we did not place very well in the overall standings, they have improved so much throughout the course of the season," boys coach Matthew Schult said. "What more could a coach ask for? I am very excited for next season already and know that we will only get better." Out of the 99 runners in the boys side of the meet, three Streaks posted sub20 minute times, though in this very competitive event, none could break the top 50. David Scheck had the highest placing at 52 with his time of 18:50. He was followed by Donovan White (75, 19:48) and Marcelo Gori (76, 19:56). The girls side saw a field of 92 runners with Sebring's Taylor Tub bs posting a 20:14 time to place eighth and stam p her ticket for ne xt Friday's Regional meet in Estero. There were other stron g times brought in Hann ah Schroeder's 22:42, Emi ly Smith's 24:24, Kel ly Broen's 25:03, Christi na Gourley's 25:09 and Fe be Murillo's 25:46 thoug h Tubbs was the only one to SPORTS D SECTION Inside This Section Jockey Fight . . .3D Prep Football Scores . . .4D Classifieds . .5-8D News-Sun Sunday, November 7, 2010 Tampa Cath.27Avon Park7 Lake Placid60Gateway Char.0 Sebring34Tenoroc14 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Given the chance to carry the ball during Friday's rout of Gateway Charter, lineman Rontrell Strickland goes down after a nine-yard pick-up.

"Everyone left everything they had out on the course and their times showed that." And for Tubbs, it showed the remarkable progress she's made since last year, her freshman season. Tailing Moulds and Kennedy most of the season, she had kept pushing forward and topped the Lady Streaks at last year's district meet with a 23rd-place finish. One year later, she mov ed up 15 spots while shavin g nearly two minutes off h er district time from a seaso n ago. "This was a very compe titive field," Fredrikson sai d. "This week will be focusin g on keeping her legs fresh an d coming up with a race strat egy in order to perform to h er fullest in an even tough er race." That race for Tubbs, t he Region 3-3Ameet, will ta ke place Friday, Nov. 12, at t he Estero Community Park wi th a 7:30 a.m. start. Continued from 1D Tubbs takes next step By WILLGRAVES Associated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Jockey fights in horse r acing are as much a part of t he sport as whips, saddles a nd the $2 bet. Most times, the dustups t ake place behind closed d oors, not in the winner's c ircle. And certainly not on n ational television following a Breeders'Cup race. Yet Calvin Borel was a ngry following a bumpy r ide in the $500,000 B reeders'Cup Marathon on F riday at Churchill Downs. When he approached rival J avier Castellano to sort t hings out, it was obvious B orel who has endeared h imself to fans because of t he way he wears his heart o n his silks was upset. Moments later, the winn er's circle at Churchill D owns erupted into chaos, w ith one of the sport's most c olorful characters red with r age. Borel and Castellano's v ery public tussle got raci ng's two-day Super Bowl o ff to an ugly start that left C astellano shaken and Borel p leading with security offic ials to let him go so he c ould "kill" his rival. Two riders who usually s ave their jostling for the r acetrack turned that ground a place typically reserved f or big smiles and even bigg er winner's checks into a fight club on Friday after t he opening race of the B reeders'Cup. The 43-year-old Borel w aited for Castellano after t he Marathon, angry over a m id-race move in which C astellano and mount Prince W ill I Am unwittingly cut o ff horses ridden by Borel a nd Martin Garcia. The move nearly sent G arcia tumbling to the g round and blunted Borel's momentum. An inquiry was ordered shortly after the race was finished. While Castellano waited to talk to track officials, Borel approached Castellano and jabbed his right hand in the 33-year-old Venezuelan's face. The 5-foot-1, 110-pound Castellano then made a move toward Borel, who is 4 inches taller. Security officials struggled to separate the two, just a few yards away from where Marathon winner Eldaafer's owners were posing with the Breeders'Cup trophy. It took several minutes for Borel his eyes bugging out and his face a deep shade of red to be restrained. His wife, Lisa, and brother Cecil each grabbed an arm and walked Borel back to the jockeys'room, where he flung off his silks. The disagreement continued out of the view of cameras in the jockey room, though Borel later apologized for his outburst on his Facebook page. "It was a situation that deserved to be resolved, however, said resolution should have taken place within the privacy of the jockeys quarters," Borel wrote. Kentucky chief state steward John Veitch said officials will meet with Borel, Castellano and Garcia on Saturday morning to review videotape of the race and the fight. If officials find either jockey at fault, penalties could range from a warning to a suspension. Veitch said neither rider had previously been disciplined for fighting, and both will be allowed to ride at the track over the weekend. Borel has two mounts on the Breeders'Cup card Saturday, while Castellano has six. The incident, however, created an almost surreal scene at Borel's home track. Afan favorite at Churchill Downs because of his trademark rail-hugging rides and his ability to turn long shots into winners, Borel was surrounded by security officials before and after each of his final two races on the first day of horse racing's version of the Super Bowl. One fan shouted: "Kick some (butt), Calvin." Borel declined numerous requests to speak to reporters. His agent, Jerry Hissam, said his client "just wants to ride." The scuffle was a decided step out of character for the easygoing and humble Borel, a lifelong jockey who has flourished under the twin spires. In May, he tucked Super Saver along the rail, his favorite spot, to become the first jockey to win three Derbys in four years. And Borel nearly pulled off his own personal triple crown in 2009. Mine That Bird won the Derby, then Borel switched to filly Rachel Alexandra to win the Preakness before going back to Mine That Bird in the Belmont Stakes, finishing third. Though jockeys have been known to tangle on the track during races, the postrace dustup was jarring in a sport known for monied owners, big hats, seersucker suits and toothy grins in the winner's circle. Not this time as a brawl more suited for a bar broke out in the track's most revered place. Both Borel and Garcia had reason to be angry. During the race, Castellano moved into the path of Romp and Martin Garcia, causing the horse to stumble. Borel and A.U. Miner were jostled as a result. "I had pressure outside me," Castellano said. "I went for a hole and they said I took his lane. I don't know. I don't know." Prince Will I Am, who finished second behind winner Eldaafer, was disqualified and placed 10th while A.U. Miner was bumped up to third in a race that will be remembered more for the chaos afterward.

Shawne Merriman's hoping for a fresh start in Buffalo. The Bills want to plug their porous defense. The two hope it's a perfect match. Three days after the Bills claimed the 2005 first-round pick off waivers from the San Diego Chargers, the one-time feared pass rusher was officially introduced in Buffalo on Saturday. Merriman was waiv ed three weeks after he w as placed on injured reser ve because of a calf injury. The injury was designat ed as minor, meaning he was to be released once he w as deemed healthy by t he Chargers. The Bills (0-7) add ed Merriman in a bid to impro ve a defense that's struggl ed against the run and has h ad difficulty generating a pa ss rush.

h as lost to Avon Park, but t hat's because it's not really a f actor in the long run, he s aid. "It's been a while since A von Park has beaten us, but t hat doesn't ever mean a whole lot in that game," he said. "Any time there's that kind of rivalry, they're going to come out and want to whip us, and we're going to come out and want to whip them. "I think it's going to be a great game. Avon Park is playing a great defense right now from what I've seen in the papers and the scores they're not giving up a whole lot of points. It's going to be a test for us offensively. You never know what's going to happen in that game." In conjunction with the county's firemen, The Quarterback Club is hosting a special, season-ending Fifth Quarter Party at the new Highlands County Convention Center at the fairgrounds directly after the Avon Park game, parent Lori Grubb said. Prizes will be awarded, along with the usual music, snacks and games.

Sebring heading to Avon Park next And though the point after failed, it was a 30-0 lead as the first period came to a close. Ashort series and punt got the ball back to the Dragons near midfield and it took five plays to take it in again. After Nice Peragine rattled off a 15-yard run, Gayle bulled ahead for four and Veley hit Weaver on a 27-yard gain to the three before Blount put it in for a 37-0 margin. Following great kickoff coverage, Gateway was backed up to their own five when a bad shotgun snap resulted in a safety for a 390 lead and when an onside kick attempt went 12 yards backward, it was a reverse that ended up in the hands of center Anthony Canevari that got Lake Placid's next touchdown from eight yards out. And when the Dragons got it back the next time, head coach Jason Hold en followed that example b y allowing rushing opprort unities for Alex Barajas, a two-yard gain, Laure nt Lollis, a four-yard ru n, Rontrell Strickland, a nin eyarder, Austin Gibbs, 1 0 yards, and Addison Walke r, two yards, before Tyl er Stewart got the touchdow n from four yards out. Jamil Abuelouf's ext ra point kick made it 53 -0 before the first half merc ifully ended. With the 40+ poin t, rolling-clock, mercy-rule in effect for the second ha lf, things went quickly, but t he Dragons had time for o ne more score. After picking off a Griffin pass, Lollis w as rewarded with the chance to score and soon did on a five-yard run for the fin al margin of victory. Lake Placid finishes u p its'season this Friday at Lemon Bay to take on t he Manta Rays. Continued from 1D LP puts a lickin' on the Griffins

But, they actually do not qualify for office until they get their paperwork processed with the governors office, Helms said Friday. Apparently, the outgoing commissioners Chairman Don Bates and Edgar Stokes leave office at 12 a.m. on Nov. 15. Commissioner Guy Maxcy, who resigned effective Nov. 9 because he was running for the tax collector position, set the stage for a possible lack of a quorum on Nov. 16, when the elects are scheduled to take office. It has never happened in my term here, Helms said. I have been with the board since 1989, and with the clerks office before that, and I dont think we have every had three commissioners leaving at the same time, Helms added. Helms said it was the sort of situation where the light just came on about what might happen, and staff had to wait until after the election to see if it would happen.

Throughout the week, Ivey h ad informed the press that Carlso n would be removed as soon as t he order was signed, but his e-mail la te on Thursday confirmed that there is still some paperwork to be comple ted before that happens. While Carlson has been arreste d, formal charges have not been fil ed yet and we typically wait until t he formal charges are filed or a gran d jury indictment is presented, Iv ey said via e-mail late Thursday afternoon. Ivey stated that the decision was stalled after meeting with the governors legal team. Once we receive formal charging documents from the state attorne y, we will likely proceed with su spending Commissioner Carlson , Ivey said. An out-of-county warrant w as issued for Carlsons arrest on No v. 3, for boating under the influen ce and vessel homicide, according to a press release from the Highlan ds County Sheriffs Office. Carlson turned himself in on No v. 3, was booked and bonded out 5 9 minutes later, according to t he booking documents acquired fro m the Sheriffs Office. Ivey stated that if Carlson is removed from office, the governor s office will accept applications f or an interim replacement. That process takes about tw o months, Ivey said Wednesday.

The Circle was lined with tents and booths this year bringing more than 42 places to grab a bite to eat or purchase a favorite trinket. Many of the vendors were selling hand-made jewelry items as well as some clothing; all with a message of course. An organic, all-natural soap table was nearby with a line of spectators asking questions and making purchases. West Center Street had been transformed into Childrens Street. The street was lined with games and activities, safety demonstrations and characters, and clowns. Also found on Childrens Street was Miss Piggy. Not the muppet character, but a real pig that had been rescued and given a new life at the Swine Knot Sanctuary. Beverly Kaelin is the owner and operator of the potbellied pig sanctuary. Ive been doing this for 10 years. I have 25 pigs that Ive rescued from all kinds of different places, Kaelin said. Everyone could be seen feeding and petting Miss Piggy as she snorted up and down the street. Childrens Street was sponsored by Tom and Bonnie Crutchfield and Scott and Terri Crutchfield.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEYchristopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING In order to pass into law, the constitutional amendments on Tuesdays ballot had to have the support of 60 percent of the voters. This meant some amendments failed. For example, Amendment 1, which was to repeal public financing of candidates who accepted spending limits, only received 53 percent of the vote statewide, meaning the repeal failed. Public financing for candidates who accept spending limits is still in effect. In Highlands County 56 percent of voters were in favor of repeal. Amendment 2, which approved an additional homestead exemption to deployed members of the military, passed. It was supported by 78 percent of voters statewide, and by 83 percent of Highlands County voters. Amendment 4, requiring citizen approval of all exceptions to comprehensive land use plans, failed when 70 percent of voters over all rejected it. Amendments 5 and 6 which both require stricter guidelines in how state legislative and federal congressional districts are drawn both passed; 63 percent apiece. Here in Highlands, they also passed, but very narrowly; by 61 and 60 percent respectively. Only 55 percent of the electors voted for Amendment 8 loosening the class size amendment of 2002 so that school averages could be used instead of absolute classroo m counts. So, it failed. Here in Highlands County, 61 pe rcent of voters approved it The non-binding stra w poll, proposing a manda te forcing the federal gover nment to balance its budg et every year passed by 7 2 percent. Local referendums had a few surprises. The School Board of Highlands County had tw o issues on the ballot as king to retain the 0.25 sp ecial millage in place to p ay for critical needs; an d deciding whether to direc tly elect the school superintendent, or have the position appointed by the school board. Sixty-seven percent of voters agreed to keep t he millage rate and 65 perce nt voted to have the superi ntendent of schools rema in an elected position. In Lake Placid, vote rs turned down the idea of creating a town manager b y 62 percent. And the Spring La ke Improvement District refe rendum was defeated by 7 0 percent. At the state level Mar co Rubio was elected to t he Senate, and Tom Roon ey re-elected to Congres s. Both are Republicans. The Florida cabinet is now exclusive ly Republican: Rick Sco tt, governor; Pam Bond i, attorney general; Je ff Atwater, chief financi al officer; and Adam Putnam commissioner of agricu lture and customer service Final referendum results Scott Special to the News-SunSEBRING Dental disease continues to be the most chronic disease affecting the health and wellbeing of children and adolescents. With that in mind, Childrens Dental of Highlands at the Highlands County Health Department and Kids Dent will partner up to provide a county-wide preventive dental program on Friday. Kids Dent of Highlands County is a school-based dental program that provides dental screening exams for all secondor third-graders. Sealants and some restorative and endodontic treatment for selected children will be given. Pediatric dentistry is a vital component of the overall health and well being of our countys children and it is our mission to support these preventive efforts, said Robert Palussek, administrator, Highlands County Health Department. The school board has approved the health screening needed to identify dental disease for the children of Highlands County and is also supplying transportation to and from the dental sites where children will receive sealants. Dr. Barbara Platte and Dr. Stephen Hulen, along with their staffs, will administer the services from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 12 at the Lake Placid site of the Highlands County Health Department, 106 N. Main Ave. There are approximately 30 children who have been previously screened by Hulen and his staff. If no dental decay in the permanent first molars is detected, sealants will be placed. Sealants will protect these permanent teeth from decay. Sealants have been available for almost 25 years, but many dentists do not take full advantage of them. They received approval from the American Dental Association (ADA) Council on Dental Materials in 1976. Studies have shown that sealants are very effective in preventing dental decay Sealants are composed of various resin systems which may include cyanoacrylates, polyurethanes and BIS-GMAproducts. The most commonly used products are generally comprised of composite resins used as tooth colored filling materials. Many studies have been done over the last 20 years to determine the safety and efficacy of these products In order to bond with tooth structure, the tooth must be clean. Etching the tooth surface is required. The acid used to etch teeth is usually phosphoric acid. It removes debris from the tooth surface, provides better wetting capability of the enamel for the resin and selects dissolution of the enamel surface. If you have an interest in having your childs teeth sealed, call Childrens Dental of Highlands, 3827257, for a new patient exam appointment.

More than 11 years after t he murderous rampage at t hat Colorado high school, c arried out by two teens w ho had been teased and s nubbed by school mates, t odays public school stud ent knows far more about b ullying, its long-term i mpact and what to do to s top it than ever before. But while awareness of t he problem, and the push t o address it, has come a l ong way, bullying continu es to be a vexing concern i n many school hallways. And some recent t ragedies, namely the rash o f recent suicides linked to a nti-gay harassment, offer a nother opportunity for p rogress. At least seven teenagers h ave killed themselves s ince July across the count ry after enduring ridicule for their sexual orientation. ... It is a heartbreaking occurrence that must be stopped, and the fresh spate of suicides shows this particular class of victim remains a vulnerable target. The question is what to do about it, and the controversy revolves around whether anti-bullying efforts must, in order to be effective, specifically address harassment that targets gay youth. Of course they must. Ignoring why some kids get bullied only stigmatizes the reason, and complicates the solution. Unfortunately, some ideologues are resisting anti-gay bullying efforts, suggesting it is some liberal tool to influence todays youth on how homosexuality is to be viewed. Religious beliefs and opinions about sexual orientation aside, anti-bullying efforts strive to teach kids that no one deserves to be harassed or tormented, no matter the reason or the bullys opinion of them. But avoiding specific discussion of the reasons people get bullied their weight, their religion, their choice of dress, their sexual orientation risks silently condoning their mistreatment in the void. Its not worth the risk. Combating bullying requires detailed instruction on what behavior should not be tolerated. And those who single out gay youth for harassment must be told in no uncertain terms that what they are doing is wrong, and unacceptable. Bottom line: Specifics are a must in preventing bullying.

The Republicans are happy because they won control of the House. The Democrats are happy because they kept control of the Senate. And the rest of us are happy because finally all the stupid campaign ads will stop running at least for now. It has been a contentious election season. Anyone still doubt that? The contention remains Tuesday night someone on Facebook was already referring to American voters as stupid for voting in Republicans. That attitude ticked me off, and I confess I got a little sarcastic with the person in question. For the record, I apologized for my comment, though the Facebook user has yet to offer any apologies for his gross insult of his fellow Americans. And we are going to have to get used to contention. We now have a divided government. Alot of people seem to prefer that, even though it means well be treated to both sides blaming each other for not getting things done. An optimistic person would say that a divided government means that theyll have to lay aside their differences and work together for the good of the country. Sorry, but even Im not that optimistic. So, what happened? The party in power tends to lose seats in a mid-term election, but the losses to the House were huge. Why did people who were content to allow the Democrats run it all change their minds? Everyone is offering their opinions. The following are mine. First, you cant ignore the influence of the Tea Party movement. While not all Tea Party candidates won their elections, a number of them did. The movement energized people and got them to the polls. Given that turnout played a big role in this election, that is a big deal. And dont think the Tea Party people are going anywhere. These people will be paying attention to what ge ts done and what doesnt. If they dont like what they see, everyone will know about it. Politicians should keep this in mind heading into 2012. Second, people are ticked off. The economy isnt in th e greatest of shape. The majo rity of Americans oppose Obamacare. Even the President acknowledged tha t people might have felt that government was getting too intrusive. People get upset, they blame the people in power. Given that Democrats controlled the House, the Senate, and the Presidency its no surprise that they bore the brunt of the blame Third, Democrats failed to get the youth back out. The young people who turned o ut to propel President Obama into the White House did n ot come back to protect his agenda. Speaking of not getting voters out, I noticed that le ss than 50 percent of registere d voters in Highlands County voted this time around. Thi s never fails to irritate me. If you didnt vote and dont like how things turned out, look in the mirror to see on e of the people to blame. Whether youre happy or not with the outcome of the elections this week, the nex t few months should prove to be interesting. Am I right and will it be filled with blame and fighting, or will wisdom raise her head and might both parties find a path to doing whats right, together? Oh, and lets enjoy the brief respite from campaign ing while we can. Before w e know it, there will be peop le announcing their run for President in 2012. Complet e with campaign ads. Joy. Not. Laura Ware is a Sebring resi dent. She can be contacted b y e-mail at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Post election ramblings Lauras Look Laura Ware Commissioners should protect our resources E ditor: Over the past six decades, t he American Dream has b een defined as a house in the s uburbs, clean air, greener p astures. Now we are running o ut of greener pastures and m any Americans consider o ver-development to be the f astest-growing threat to their l ocal environment and qualit y of life. Between 1970 and 1990, m ore than 19 million acres of r ural land were developed. E very year 400,000 acres are b eing bulldozed under. And t he rate of development is a ccelerating. The American Farmland T rust reports that an astoundi ng 70 percent of prime or u nique farmland is now in the p ath of rapid development. A llowing the proposed develo pments of the Blue Head R anch, Lake Placid Groves, a nd the Lake Placid Vision O verlay will increase traffic c ongestion, increase depende nce on fossil fuels, worsen a ir and water pollution, decim ate open space and wetl ands, increase flooding, and d estroy wildlife habitat. I gnoring the recommendation o f the DCAto curtail these p roposed developments is not a sound decision for the resid ents, the natural habitat, or t he amazing wildlife of the L ake Placid area. So just who, then, would it b e benefiting? It is interesti ng to note that most of our c ounty commissioners are m embers of water or natural r esources advisory committ ees. How can one serve on these committees and then vote to destroy those same resources? We, as voters, put our trust in our commissioners to protect the very resources that most of us moved here to enjoy. Why, then, would they vote against it? An interesting question, indeed. Dr. Cathy Kirk Lake PlacidCounty should stop wasting moneyEditor: Highlands County will not have the schools or the roads for the new towns in the planning amendments passed by the county commission in September. The Florida Department of Community Affairs, DCA, has rejected the plan, again, for this and other reasons. DCAdismisses much of the amendments as aspirational, with lofty goals but no real guidelines. There is talk of walkable and bicyclefriendly communities in the existing towns of Highlands County but no specific way to get there. The amendments are vague on protecting lakes, ridge land and aquifer recharge areas. DCAparticularly objects to the open-ended exception on protecting Natural Resource and Agricultural areas on the Blue Head Ranch. I believe they are talking about the worker housing provision that would go with the BHR development. There would be a new town and worker housing outside the new town. New towns of North Lake Placid, South Lake Placid, Lake Placid Groves and the Blue Head Ranch development are all included in the plan amendments. In Lake Placid Groves, a narrow bear corridor is supposed to separate black bears from residents. Im not convinced this will work. Interestingly enough, the Blue Head Ranch is also prime black bear habitat. There isnt a word about separating bears and residents for the BHR development. The Department of Community Affairs has done Highlands County a favor by pointing out the pitfalls in these Amendments and their new towns, which are not needed. Our legislators should overcome their reluctance to re-authorize DCA. Instead of appealing the decision, Highlands County should admit that enough taxpayersmoney has been wasted pursuing schemes of corporate landowners. Dale L. Gillis SebringCarlson should stay as commissionerEditor: I am deeply troubled by recent newspaper articles suggesting that Jeff Carlson may be replaced as a county commissioner. Mr. Carlson, a commissioner for two years, has demonstrated strong steadfast courage leading this county through unprecedented difficulties. Although I may not have agreed with his every vote, I respect him for his convictions, ethics, and resolve to serve the taxpayers of Highlands County. We are seating three new county commissioners on Nov. 16, all without experience as elected officials, Our county administrator, Rick Helms, although doing a good job and having experience, is still an interim administrator and may not want to accept a permanent long-term position. Mr. Carlsons mistake is one that many of us have made before and some may make again, but hopefully without the dire consequences suffered by him and his family. Mr. Carlsons act, without doubt, will result in a personal burden that will weigh heavily upon him. It in no way casts any dispersions on his integrity, ethics, or morals, making him questionable serving as our county commissioner. Please do not allow our governor to add insult to Mr. Carlsons personal tragedy or punish us as taxpayers by removing him as a county commissioner. James Wohl SebringColby should replace Carlson on boardEditor: If Gov. Crist removes County Commissioner Jeff Carlson from office, due to charges, a logical and good replacement would be Capt. Preston Colby. Colby certainly is familiar with the workings of county government and is an expert regarding the Government In The Sunshine Laws. In my opinion, a petition to the governor should be started immediately, before the Good Ole Boys rally behind some unqualified, hand-picked person who owes allegiance to his handlers and not to the people. This is an opportunity we should not take lightly. I have not asked Capt. Colby if he would consider this appointment; however, Im certain that if a petition went forward to the governor, Colby would accept the appointment. Hank Kowalski Lake PlacidRemember Veterans Day on Nov. 11Editor: This is the day that we honor and salute all of the American veterans who, throughout our history, have unselfishly placed their lives on the line for our freedom. Let us never forget our nations veterans, who if it were not for them, we would not experience the freedoms we enjoy and take for granted. Too many shed their blood and were crippled and maimed and many more paid the ultimate price. Let us instill in our children the importance of patriotism and to be proud of our countrys colors, the red, white and the blue, which are the colors of our beloved American flag. Let us not forget the men and women who are currently in uniform. It is they who will and are now answering our countrys call. Let them know and feel that we as a country are behind them all the way. Do not forget them when they return to our shores, as they are todays heroes. May we not let them down as we did for so many of our brothers and sisters who were let down in t he past. Please give all vetera ns and military men and wom en the honor and respect that is due them. As you gather wi th friends and family on th is day, bow your heads and s ay a small prayer of thanks f or all the freedoms we a re enjoying in this gre at America of ours. Rememb er freedom is not free. O ur country has paid a great pri ce for the privilege of freedom In closing dont forget to say thank you to a veter an as he helped earn the freedo m you are celebrating today an d everyday. May God bless the vete rans, wherever they may be and God bless America.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK South F lorida Community College h eld a special program F riday, a Day Institute spons ored by the Florida Campus C ompact, devoted to green r evolution, green jobs and g reen service-learning. One speaker was Kevin C ooper, an expert in nano technology and alternate e nergies who currently h eads the Indian River State C ollege Banner Center for E nergy. He has years of p ractical experience in the f ield as well as in research l abs at Motorola and ran his o wn toy company that he m arketed as green. The idea of designing g reen, or with natural forces i n mind, is as old as recorde d civilization, Cooper said. H e pointed to examples t hroughout history. When gardens began a ppearing on skyscraper r oofs in Chicago a few years a go, Cooper said, they simp ly imitated the hanging g ardens of Babylon, which w ere designed to help cool a nd freshen the buildings. Greeks built their homes t urned toward the sun, using p assive solar energy to w arm their houses. Water pollution created h ealth problems in 1450 B .C. that led to religious d ietary laws and the concept o f kosher. The feudal era plague led t o the first public health p olicies. More recently, American a ttitudes began to change a fter President Teddy R oosevelt inaugurated the n ational park system, and e specially in the 1960s with t he publication of Silent S pring by Rachel Carson a nd the calamity caused w hen the Cuyahoga River c aught fire in 1969. In reaction, the 1970s was a n active time for environm entalists. The E nvironmental Protection A gency was created, as was E arth Day, Greenpeace, and t he Wilderness Act. Nuclear P ower became a viable altern ative and sewage facilities g rew by 100 percent. The 1980s saw concern w ith ozone depletion and n ow attention is being paid t o climate change. The term green, Cooper s aid, has been difficult to d efine. It is an abstract u mbrella term meaning r oughly, meeting the needs o f the present without comp romising the future. Cooper said that the drivi ng forces behind green t echnology are new revenue s ources and job creation. He warned that America i s not alone in exploring the f ield. We risk losing millions t o other nations that offer m ore serious and sustained r esearch, he said. Florida is a paradox, C ooper added. On the one hand it produces more energy than it currently needs even though Florida ranks third in the nation for overall power consumption and that slows alternative energy development. On the other hand Florida is the largest producer of renewable energy using wind and solar farms and solar thermal power. The largest builder of smart meters is in Bradenton and Florida ranks second in the nation for wind turbine manufacture. Smart meters are the wave of the future, Cooper said. They will be able to track a homes energy use minute by minute, sending in reports to the power company every few minutes. With this information, the utility will be better able to adjust its output to a communitys needs in real time. Cooper warned the small, but attentive audience, that real progress is still down the road. Most alternative energy technology is in its infancy. For example, solar power right now is the most expensive way to produce electricity, while nuclear power is the cheapest. It is an interesting market, Cooper said, but we will need patience and preparation; creativity and the private sector to move forward. In the short run green technology will cause a loss of jobs, as machinery and electronics do more of todays work. In the long run, however, there will be a growth in jobs that require specialized training and offer more money and better benefits. An individual with an Associates of Science degree in energy management, for example, could expect to make $65,000 at a nuclear power plant. Short term, the quickest way to save energy will be in weatherizing houses and buildings. This should provide a source of many jobs people to audit a home and recommend changes, and the companies to do the changes. Cooper said there would be many opportunities for small businesses from transporting biomass fuel to processing plants, to those installing charge stations in cities and rural rest stops to serve the growing number of electric cars. There will also be a need for individuals versed in data storage, security, analysis and management. Which is one reason the college hosted the green event its goal is to stay up-to-date with changes in the workplace and culture overall. The idea is to be ready with needed education as research turns into practical progress.

Dan Murphy, director of the Economic Development Commission, spoke earlier, explaining to a small audience that the county traditionally produced jobs in the health industries, agriculture and retail. Construction and tourism were contributing to a larger job pool, and the goal was to introduce more manufacturing and biomass production. Alleyne told the audience biomass is not a new idea. Rudolf Diesel, in 1900, ran his prototype automobile on peanut oil. Alleyne said the extension office has experimental fields out by the Avon Park Correctional Institute researching just what kind of biomass plant material would be the most effective and profitable for the county. Corn has already been found to be too expensive and of lesser value as a biofuel than other crops. In addition, livestock feed prices raised significantly as corn was diverted to the energy field. The search is on for a better plant. Brazil, which has surged ahead of the United States in the field of alternate energy sources, uses sugar cane to create ethanol. Sugar cane, however, has draw backs including its inability to withstand the cold. Four plants are being grown out at the prison kenaf, camalina, jathropha and sweet sorghum. Sorghum, Alleyne said, is particularly well suited to Highlands County. All of these plants are fa st growing, drought and co ld tolerant and high in oil co ntent. The biggest drawback to plants as an energy source is the cost of getting them to t he processor and the ethanol to the market. Even a trip of 5 0 miles can wipe out any pro fit. Two processing plants a re planned for the county to deal with this problem. During a question an d answer period Alleyne w as asked if it wasnt dangero us to switch from growing foo d crops to growing a cash cro p. Alleyne referred to t he problems facing citrus at t he moment canker, bla ck spot, greening and low er priced imports among them Citrus may be removed , Alleyne conceded, but w e are not in any way advoca ting planting fewer foo d crops. Alleyne remained upbe at and forward looking. I a m not talking gloom an d doom, he said. Highlan ds will one day be blooming. W e are poised to be the bioma ss capital of Florida. He added that this is a good thing because t he United States is the large st energy user of all consum ing approximately 13 millio n barrels of oil a day. Tha ts more than Japan, German y and China combined use in a day. While America represen ts 5 percent of the worlds po pulation it uses 25 percent of the worlds energy, Alley ne said, whereas Europe, wi th approximately 21 percent of the worlds population, us es only 11 percent of the energ y. Fossil fuel is finite, he said, and it leaves us open to political threats, but we cou ld be producing 16 billion ga llons of biofuel by 2022. Plant it and pay less News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Kevin Cooper, an expert in energy alternatives and green marketing, spoke at the SFCC University Center Friday. He told students to think creatively, to be patient but persistent. Energy alternatives are the future he said; challenges and opportunities abound.

f ix, he said, was to get their p aperwork out of the way, a nd their oath of office, a head of time. It is just a matter of p aperwork. Each candidate r eceives a letter, a form and a r equest for a $10 filing fee a fter they are elected. They h ave to fill out the forms and s end them in to the govern ors office before they can t ake office. Since we had a u nique situation, we wanted t o make sure that we got t hem all rounded up and subm itted early, Helms said. Yeah this was kind of u nusual, but we wanted to i nsure that we did not allow a s ituation for a lack of quorum t o happen, said Helms. Helms also said he had met w ith County Attorney Ross M acbeth and everyone felt t his was the best course of a ction. This time, because of the s ituation, it was extremely i mportant to make sure e verything is in by the 16th, H elms insisted. An added complication is t he possible removal of C ommissioner Jeff Carlson, w ho was recently charged w ith boating under the influe nce and vessel homicide in t he death of his wife. Sterling Ivey, public information officer for Governor Charlie Christ, stated originally that Carlson was being removed from office soon, but then corrected that and said the governors office was waiting for all the paperwork to be submitted before the governor would sign an executive order. Carlson is currently vice chair of the commission, and will assume chair responsibilities on the Nov. 16. That complicates things further, but currently I have not been made aware of any notice of removal or his resignation, Helms said. The elects were also a little astounded to have all the paperwork and oath out of the way early. Mr. Helms did a bang up job of getting this done correctly, commissioner-elect Richie said. It was a surprise. I knew that I was coming in to work on some paperwork, but not that I would be taking the oath, Richie said. I wasnt notified ahead of time. I knew that I was under the Sunshine law when the election results were announced, and I have already submitted formal resignations for some of the committees I sit on, but I wasnt aware that I would take the official oath, Richie laughed. Yep, took the oath today, commission-elect Don Elwell said Friday. But I dont think it has sunk in just yet. My understanding is that we have to make sure that we have the quorum necessary to conduct business on the 16th. I do know one thing, in the next 12 days I have a lot of learning to do. There will be a ceremonial swearing in during the Nov. 16 meeting, according to Helms, to complete the process. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, November 7, 2010Page 7A LIMITED SPACE CALLTODAY! 5 DAYS a week$ 30 Get In Shape Learn Self Defense Improve Self Esteem Make Better GradesMARTIAL ARTS AMERICA471-2467Best After School Program in SebringFREEPICKUP from: Kindergarten Learning Center, Cracker Trail, Sun-N-Lakes, Woodlawn, Fred Wild, Memorial, Hill Gustat, Sebring Middle/High Located on Kenilworth Sebring*Some Restrictions Apply Life Care, Not Day Care Restaurant & Coffee ShopSebring Square382-2333Mon-Sat 6:30am-2pm Sunday 7am-2pmThe Best Part of Waking Up is Folgers coffee at Dots!

Volunteering at the thea tre is something different all o f the time, Knell said. SFCCs Cultural Programs o ffers a broad scope of entert ainment, so its never bori ng. One of Knells most memorable experiences as an usher was when Kenny Rogers performed. They needed someone to do extra security the day of the concert so I volunteered, and I got to personally meet him and his wife. Sebring resident Barbara Akerson has volunteered for SFCCs Cultural Programs for 10 years. I was looking for something to do and my sister was a volunteer so I decided to join her, Akerson said. She volunteers for 10 shows a season and works in various areas including the carport, as an usher, and the artist receptions. Anyone who enjoys helping and meeting new people would enjoy volunteering at the theatre. Performances run November-June and include the Artist and Matinee Series, Young Peoples Theatre, and a Summer Series performance in late June, as well as Kaleidoscope and Jazz Series performances which are held in the SFCC University Center Auditorium.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Arbuckle Creek clean up was held Oct. 30. The event began at 8 a.m. and ended around 3:30 p.m. when volunteers had collected more than 1,100 pounds of trash. Lunch was prepared by Lee Flocke from the Highlands County Lakes Association and hamburgers and the fixings were purchased from funds through the lakes division of the Highlands County Tourist Development Council. Christy Reed of the Highlands County Recycling Department supplied the trash bags, trash grabbers and the dump truck to haul away 1,140 pounds of trash that was collected. The volunteers launched their canoes and kayaks at the Arbuckle Creek Road boat ramp and paddled down the creek to Spring Lake Park collecting bottles, cans, bait containers and lawn chairs. Ted Budary was instrumental in organizing the event. He contacted many businesses and was able to get sponsorships from Boner Custom Rods, Dees Restaurant, Kimmel & Knott, American Rivers and the Snack Shack to help in the cause of clearing t he creek of litter. Other organ izations willing to help in t he effort to clean up the cre ek were Highlands Coun ty Board of Coun ty Commission, Highlan ds Soil and Wat er Conservation District an d Spring Lake Improveme nt District. Arbuckle Creek clean up nets 1,100 pounds of trash off their artistic skills to the public. The canvas painting required a $1 donation to help support the students. Trees with apples, a bright blue sky, and smiling faces were on display as the students continued taking donations and promoting their talents. Martile Blackman, festival director, was very pleased with the crowd and all that was going on the day of the festival. We couldnt have done it without the fire department, the police, all the vendors. Im just so happy to see it do well, Sebring is such a great place, Blackman said.

By WILLLESTER Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama is appealing to victorious Republicans to go along with his plan to extend tax cuts for the middle class, saying the election is over and its time to down to business. But its not fair, he says, to make permanent the Bush-era cuts for the wealthiest because that would require the U.S. to borrow $700 billion more to pay for it. The campaign season is over, the president said Saturday in his weekly radio and online address. And its time to focus on our shared responsibilities and work together. Obamas long-standing position has been that individuals with incomes less than $200,000 a year and couples making less than $250,000 should continue to enjoy the tax cuts enacted during George W. Bushs presidency but that those making more should return to the higher rates before Bush took office. The cuts, enacted in 2001 and 2003, are due to expire Dec. 31. Wed be digging ourselves into an ev en deeper fiscal hole and passing the burd en onto our children, he said, referring to pe rmanent extension of the tax cuts for wealt hier Americans. Republicans said this week they strong ly favor renewing all the Bush tax cuts, giv en the struggling economy. The White House said this past week aft er stinging midterm elections for Democra ts that Obama is willing to consider a compr omise for a oneor two-year extension of a ll the tax cuts, even for families earning mo re than $250,000 a year. Obama has invited Republican an d Democratic congressional leaders to me et with him on the economy and jobs after he returns from his 10-day trip to Asia. Sen.-elect Marco Rubio of Florida said in the Republican address that lawmakers ow e it to the voters to make a course correctio n from government spending and deficits.

Brees began channeling t hat frustration by taking a m ore active role in combati ng youth financial illiteracy. The statistics he cites are troubling: The average high school senior can answer only about half of basic financial knowledge questions correctly. Although 93 percent of Americans believe all high school students should be required to take a financial education class, only four states require at least a semester-long course in personal finances. Only four in 10 adults understand how to properly calculate how much theyll need to reach their retirement savings goals. Yet for most average earners, Social Security will replace only about 40 percent of pre-retirement earnings. More than one in 10 Americans dont use banks at all, despite the financial advantages they provide. As you might expect, Brees is taking action.

By ANNE DINNOCENZIO APRetail Writer NEW YORK Americans took a pause in shopping in October, leaving retailers with their weakest peformance since A pril as unsually warm weather depressed their appetite for cold w eather items. Stores were forced to discount more on coats and hats to get shoppers to spend. And even as the weather cools, discounts w ill be necessary to keep pulling shoppers in amid high unemployment, analysts said. The International Council of Shopping Centers index measuring revenue at stores open at least a year showed a 1.6 percent increase, the weakest performance since Aprils 0.8 percent increase. Octobers figure represented a slowdown from September, when it rose 2.6 percent. Bright spots among retailers reporting revenue figures T hursday were Costco W holesale Corp. and Limited Brands Inc., both of which reported bigger increases than W all Street analysts expected. Macys Inc., helped by tailoring merchandise to local markets, also had a decent performance, outshining rivals such as J.C. Penney Co. and Kohls Corp., both of which suffered sales declines. Target Corp. posted a small gain thats slightly above Wall Street estimates. And Gap Inc. posted a surprise gain. Luxury chains like Saks Inc. continued to do well as wealthy shoppers are back to spending, albeit cautiously. It was a promotionally driven month, said Jharonne Martis, director of consumer research at Thomson Reuters. Warm w eather hurt sales of fall merchandise. We expect discounting is going to be necessary to drive holiday sales. The figures are based on revenue at stores open at least a year. Thats considered a key indicator of a retailers health because it measures growth at existing locations and excludes new or closed stores. The big factor depressing October sales was the unusually warm weather, said Mike Niemira, chief economist at International Council of Shopping Centers. He estimated that depressed October sales by one percentage point. For retailers, the good news is that heavy discounting may not hurt third-quarter profits because October is the least important month for the period, according to Ken Perkins, president of RetailMetrics, a research firm. Macys and Limited raised their earnings outlook. Gap offered a surprising strong profit outlook that topped analysts estimates. October is typically slow because its between back-toschool season and the Christmas season, but shoppers took more of a breather this year. That made stores push discounts even more to entice consumers, who are buying even closer to when they need the items in the wake of the Great Recession. Shoppers are expected to remain tight-fisted with unemployment stuck near 10 percent. Thats why many more stores than last year are pushing discounts on holiday gifts earlier, even before Halloween. Americans are also being bombarded with holiday ads on TV. Best Buy Co., for example, started its holiday TV ad campaign Monday; last year, it began Nov. 11. A report Thursday from the Labor Department underscored the job markets weakness. It showed the number of people seeking jobless benefits jumped sharply last week, after two straight weeks of declines. Against this background, warehouse clubs and discounters are holding up better than stores in middle price ranges. Costco said Thursday that its revenue at stores open at least a year climbed 6 percent in October as international results improved in part because of the weaker dollar. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected a smaller 4.6 percent increase. Target posted a 1.7 percent gain in October, slightly better than the 1.5 percent estimate from analysts. CEO Gregg Steinhafel said in a statement the results were at the low end of the companys expectations because of softness in the first half of the month. Steinhafel noted traffic is healthy in stores, and the company is seeing essential items sell better than discretionary items. Target, which is counting on a much-publicized 5 percent discount to store credit and debit card holders, said it expects revenue at stores open at least a year to increase in the low-single-digit percentage in November. Limited, the operator of Victorias Secret, Bath and Body Works and other businesses, reported a 9 percent gain, well above the 6.1 percent forecast. Gap had a 2 percent rise in October revenue at stores open at least a year; analysts had expected a 2.5 percent decline. Department stores had a mixed performance. Macys posted a 2.5 percent increase, though it said that sales in the beginning of the month were weak because of the warm weather. Analysts had expected a 1.6 percent gain. Terry Lundgren, Macys chairman, president and CEO, said. Page 2BNews-SunSunday, November 7, 2010www.newssun.com E.O.

Special to the News-SunSouth Florida Community C ollege garnered second p lace during the FACC I nstitutional Effectiveness P lanning and Professional D evelopment Commissions E xemplary Practice Awards in O ctober for its Data Analysis G roup (DAG). Exemplary practices are i mportant for community coll eges because they highlight i nnovate practices, technolog ies, and processes necessary t o stay completive in the field o f higher education and bring a wareness to issues, processes a nd programs that are critical t o the mission of community c olleges, said Juanita Scott, c hair, FACC Institutional E ffectiveness and P rofessional Development C ommission. The competition this year was truly tough. There were many great new ideas and practices from all of the participants about research and professional development. The DAG process presented an innovative way to gather research data and make it available to those who use it. As part of the awards submission process, Dr. Chris van der Kaay, director, adult education and a member of DAG, gave a presentation to the FACC Institutional Effectiveness and Professional Development Commission members on why DAG was developed and how it assists SFCC. DAG was developed in fall 2008 to analyze data from different state and national sources and institutional reports. The committee then provides the data to various college stakeholders and departments and helps facilitate improvement activities and procedures at SFCC. DAG doesnt rely on additional resources, only those that are currently available, Dr. van der Kaay said. This proves to be cost effective. Another unique thing about DAG is that while all community colleges collect this data, most do it through their Institutional Research and Effectiveness departments. We have developed a group of people that come from each college division to determine individual needs. As an educational institution we are required to use data and to use it properly, Dr. van der Kaay said. Our goal is to foster an institutionwide culture of data informed decision-making and continuous improvement. DAG serves as a very essential function to SFCC because it evaluates all of the major assessment findings at the college and presents the information to the experts in the corresponding departments and programs, said Dr. Leana Revell, vice president, educational and student services. This helps keep the college informed about what we are doing right and what we need to improve on for our students.

SFCC also served as a host college for the convention, introducing guest speakers and managing a fundraising penny war table. During her campaign for president of FNSA, Jones said, collaboration, not competition is the foundation on which FNSA stands. Prior to the convention, the FNSAissued a Florida Fit Nurse challenge for attendees to carry a pedometer and calculate the number of steps they took during a 28-day period. FNSAcalculated that over 900 million steps were taken, with SFCC as the highest contributor.

E ach year, ACCTpresents f ive awards in five regions o f the United States, as well a s five national awards. Christensen came to S FCC seven years ago, foll owing a distinguished, 22y ear career in the U.S. N avy. As an educator, C hristensen has developed n ew approaches to teaching d ifficult subjects and has i nfused both his traditional c lassroom and online course s with cutting-edge techn ology and new methods of c ommunication. He has shared his a pproaches with SFCC and o ther community college i nstructors through Webb ased workshops, at the a nnual conferences of the F lorida Association of C ommunity Colleges ( FACC), and at national c onference of Desire To L earn (D2L). As an administrator, C hristensen has been activel y involved in developing t he standards of knowledge a nd ability students should p ossess upon completing g eneral education courses. He helped create an A cademic Master Plan that d etermines how finances are s pent on upgrading technolo gy throughout the colleges f our locations; a new strateg ic plan that outlines the c olleges goals for the next s ix years; and a new Quality E nhancement Plan (QEP) t hat will help freshmen navi gate the first year of coll ege. He is now assisting with the colleges process of being reaffirmed for its accreditation by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). This year, Christensen became an official Open Textbook Advocate/Trainer with the Community College Collaborative (CCOTC). Three years ago, Christensen adopted and modified open textbooks for his physics classes, thereby reducing each students textbook costs from $222 to $13. He shares his knowledge of open textbooks through national online discussion boards and other forums. Additionally, Christensen is a member of the Activity Based Physics Faculty Institute (ABPFI) and is a reader for the Educational Testing Service (ETS) advanced placement examinations in physics. SFCCs Student Government Association (SGA) named him the FullTime Faculty Member of the Year for 2004-05 and Instructor of the Year for 2006. In 2005, he received the SFCC Presidents Award for Employee of the Year, and in 2006 he received the National Institute of Staff and Organizational Develop (NISOD) Excellence Award. I am deeply humbled and honored by this award, Christensen said. It is such a privilege to serve our college and to know that every day I am helping to achieve our shared vision of enriching our communities through education, one life at a time. Williams is an SFCC alum who served seven years on the SFCC District Board of Trustees (1976-83) and was a founding member and president of the SFCC Foundation, Inc. In 1983, Williams became a charter member of the Community College Coordinating Council, which evolved into the State Board of Community Colleges. I want to be part of building Florida into the top-ranked United States educational system. I support excellent educational opportunities for everyone, regardless of his or her position in life, he said at the time. Williams served on the State Board for 18 years longer than any other charter member and was its chairman twice before retiring in 2000. That same year, the Florida Association of Community Colleges (FACC) recognized Williamsdedication to community colleges by presenting him with its highest honor, the LeRoy Collins Award. I believe in the community college system, Williams said. After high school, many students cannot afford to go to universities. With community colleges, all students have the opportunity to earn an associate degree or learn vocational skills. We are very proud of Winkie Williams and Erik Christensen for representing our college with distinction, said Dr. Norman L. Stephens Jr., SFCC president. It is rare for a college to have one award recipient in a given year since there are over 1,200 members colleges in the association and only five regions. It is quite unique and perhaps unprecedented for any college to have two recipients of these regional awards. We congratulate both of these fine individuals and thank them for their exemplary service to our college. SFCC garners two awards from the Association of Community College Trustees Wendell Williams Erik Christensen Did YouKNOW?In Florida, the bicycle is legally defined as a vehicle. Bicyclists using a public roadway are considered operators of motor vehicles and are responsible for observing all traffic laws. With few exceptions, there is only one road and it is up to motorists and bicyclists to treat each other with care and respect. Adherence to the law is the foundation of respect.

The board also adopted p rocedures for considering r equests from Floridas 11 p ublic universities for new f ees and flat-rate tuition p lans during a meeting T hursday at the University of F lorida in Gainesville. Things got tense when S tate University System C hancellor Frank Brogan b riefed one of the boards c ommittees on Florida State U niversitys contract with a d igital film company that p lans to open its own school i n West Palm Beach. It would b e a potential competitor for F lorida Atlantic University, w hich offers similar courses. FSU President Eric Barron a ssured board members the d eal currently says his univ ersitys elite film school w ill only provide advice to D igital Domain. Florida Atlantic President M ary Jane Saunders responde d that the two-year $ 800,000 contract calls for m ore than that. Florida State w ould develop curriculum f or the private, for-profit s chool, she said. Brogan said the dispute is a n example of why he plans t o draft regulations to prevent o r resolve proximity conflicts i n the future. No one is trying to squash e ntrepreneurial spirit, B rogan told the board, but he s aid such conflicts shouldnt be handled in a seat-of-thepants manner. Board Chairwoman Ava Parker of Jacksonville said the panel needs to do more than just encourage university officials to talk. The digital film issue is one of three proximity disputes Brogan has been refereeing. The others involve the University of Floridas proposed food and agricultural sciences program at MiamiDade College near Florida International University; and Florida A&M Universitys planned branch specializing in rural health care in Crestview, about 40 miles from Pensacolas University of West Florida. University of Florida President Bernie Machen assured the panel that the issue in his schools case is one of communication and is being resolved. West Florida President Judy Bense said she doesnt have a problem with Florida A&Ms planned pharmacy program at Crestview but was surprised to discover the Legislature included nursing and other health care programs also offered by her school in its appropriation for the new facility. The other programs well need to collaborate on, Bense said. Well work it through. She said such proximity conflicts often are caused not by the universities but by lawmakers. The larger issue is a political one, Bense said. I know the political game. Bense said its happened before to West Florida, such as when the Legislature transferred the smaller schools Panama City branch to Florida State. It was sort of an antiUWF thing, Bense said. Florida A&M President James Ammons told the board his school wasnt part of any scheme to harm West Florida and said hed work with Bense to resolve their remaining issues. The boards new fee and tuition regulations will provide frameworks for the universities to submit proposals for approval in February. Under whats known as block-rate tuition, students are charged the same regardless of how many courses they take. The concept has drawn opposition because it would increase costs for students who take less than a full load. The University of Florida is considering the approach as a way to encourage students to get their degrees sooner. Other schools have shown little interest. We dont know who will; we dont know if anyone will seek approval, said board member Tico Perez of Orlando. The board also agreed to consider in January a threeyear pilot program that would allow higher, market-rate tuition for a limited number of graduate programs. Rates would more closely match those charged by private schools and public universities in other states. Those proposals also will be considered in February.

Find it at www.shopnwf.org.Find state and regional backyard bird guides at www.songbirdgarden.com.Learn how to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count at www.birdsource.org.Learn more about participating in a Christmas Bird Count by contacting your local Audubon Society Chapter: www.audubon.org/bird/cbc/. Check with your local cooperative extension office to learn more about native plants and creating a backyard habitat for the birds in your region.Have your garden certified as a wildlife habitat by visiting the National Wildlife Federation website at www.nwf.org. Find out which species are visiting your feeders with the Bird Identifier at www.scottswildbirdfood.com. Purple Finch The Purple Finch is a migratory bird that would be a colorful addition to any garden. It winters along the Pacific Coast and from central Texas to northern Florida. FAMILYFEATURES M ost people could recognize a Robin or a Cardinal if they saw one but what about a Northern Flicker or a Lazuli Bunting? Even with several hundreds of bird species in North America year-round, many backyard birders are unfamiliar with some of the birds specific to their region. If youd like to meet some unique feathered friends, follow these simple tips on how to attract them to your own backyard.CreateaFriendlyHabitatBirds have simple needs: food, water, shelter and places to raise young. By establishing these elements in your outdoor living space, you can make beautiful birds in your region feel right at home. In addition, incorporating these basic elements can help certify your backyard as a wildlife habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. WaterBirds need a dependable supply of fresh, clean water for drinking and bathing. Placing a birdbath, especially one with a trickle or fountain, makes your garden a very desirable spot. John Robinson, Scotts chief ornithologist, recommends using a low, shallow birdbath, where birds normally find water. Birds will naturally be attracted to water sources found at the ground level even more than those placed on pedestals. This is especially true if the source is in the shade to keep the water cooler, he says. Also, if you have a pond or stream, remember to add some flat rocks where birds can perch while drinking or bathing.ShelterBirds seek shelter at different heights. Make your garden more hospitable by growing vines, shrubs and trees. Evergreens provide excellent winter shelter, as well as protection from cats and other predators. Cavities in a dead or dying tree make great nesting spots. If theres one in your yard, let it stand unless safety is a concern.NestingMany bird species will use the same plants that provide shelter as nesting spots. You can put up nesting boxes that will be used by species such as bluebirds, chickadees, wrens, woodpeckers and even owls. FeedWildBirdsWild birds spend most of their time foraging for food such as insects, fruits, nectar and seeds. Many birds may require up to 10,000 calories a day and enjoy sampling a wide variety of foods. Therefore, providing numerous feeding options is the best way to keep them returning to your backyard habitat. Growing a variety of plants that bloom and produce fruit, seeds or nuts at different times throughout the year attracts even more birds to your backyard. Many perennials, grasses, vines, shrubs and trees also are food sources. Naturally, native birds thrive on native plants, so selecting regional beauties that produce seeds, berries, or nectar increases food sources as well as shelter and nesting materials. Check with a local nursery to get advice on what plants are native to your area. To supplement their diet, fill feeders with high quality wild bird food. Not all birds enjoy the same seeds. Birds found in one area of the country may be different from birds in other regions. Agreat way to ensure the birds in your area are receiving the nutrition needed is to look for region-specific wild bird food, like Scotts Songbird Selections Regional Bird Blends. To learn more about bringing unique birds to your backyard, sign up for the Backyard Birding e-newsletter at www.scottswildbirdfood.com. Pyrrhuloxia The Pyrrhuloxia is a songbird that lives in the open desert scrub of southwestern United States. Being a thickbilled, reddish bird with a crest, it marginally resembles its close relative, the Northern Cardinal. Red-breasted Nuthatch It is easy to distinguish the Red-breasted Nuthatch because of its white face and throat. Its breeding range extends from southeastern Alaska south to the Carolinas.Northeast: Purple Finch, Tufted Titmouse Southeast: Red-bellied Woodpecker, Carolina Chickadee Midwestern: Northern Flicker, Red-breasted Nuthatch Southwestern: Pyrrhuloxia, Lazuli Bunting Western: Spotted Towhee, Mountain ChickadeeBirdsinYourRegionHere are just a few of the unique regional birds.

DearAbby: A woman driving the car ahead of me was swerving and weaving in and out of the next lane. She would slow down, then speed up, and I thought she might have been drunk. As I pulled up beside her, I realized she was using sign language to communicate with her passenger. She would turn her head toward the passenger, signing with both hands and ignoring her responsibilities of being a good driver. Is this legal? That woman was driving recklessly, and I dont think she should have been driving if she couldnt pay attention to the road. Safe Driver in Lexington, S.C. DearSafe Driver: According to the Beverly Hills, Calif., Police Department, the use of sign language is legal as long as it doesnt interfere with safe driving. The state of California has a basic speed law that states: No person shall drive a vehicle upon a state highway at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent having due regard for weather, visibility, the traffic on, and the surface and width of, the highway, and in no event which endangers the safety of persons or property. In the case you have described, the person who was signing to her passenger was in violation of this law. Im sure your state has similar regulations. DearAbby: When my father-in-law, Herb, comes to visit, he rummages through our personal belongings whether they be in the garage, basement or storage closet. He feels compelled to fix anything he thinks needs fixing or rearranging. I am certain Herb thinks hes being helpful, but we have addressed this issue with him many times and were always met with defensiveness and lack of understanding. He justifies his actions by listing all of the good deeds he does for us some of which are legit. My husband and I are at a loss. We love Herb and want him to be a part of our lives and the lives of our children, but this makes us very uncomfortable. At times, we even feel violated in our own home. Where do we go from here? Herbs Family in Wisconsin DearFamily: Your fatherin-law may feel so comfortable at your place that he has it confused with his place. From here, you install a lock on every door in your home that you do not want Herb to enter without supervision. And so he wont be bored, plan ahead and consider setting aside some projects that do need fixing, so he wont be sitting around with nothing to do that makes him fee l useful. DearAbby: I recently had a dinner party in my condo. One of my guests brought along his new roommate, whom I had never met. During the evening, the young man kep t placing his foot on my coffe e table and rubbing the sole o f his shoe over the edge and corner. I didnt say anything because I didnt want to make him feel uncomfortable. After the party ended, I realized my coffee table had been damaged by what he did. What is a polite way to te ll someone to remove his or h er foot from my table without causing a scene or embarras sing him? Mitch in Chicag o DearMitch: Offer the pe rson a footstool or something to place under the offending foot that would protect your table. Or, take an even more direct approach and say to the person in a calm manner Please dont put your foot there because the finish on my coffee table is easily damaged.

Each time we do, my heart saddens t o see it in such miserable condition. Its the flag of the United States of A merica. As it waves its torn stripes faded s tars sadly lamenting its tattered state s till it bravely waves. I wonder why this patriotic owner of t he residence where it is displayed d oesnt replace it. I know we are supp osed to retire old flags appropriately. P erhaps one day he will. But, in the m eantime, it determinedly waves. And then I got to thinking. Our veterans have probably seen our f lag in worse condition than t his.Theyve been on the battlefields of m any wars where it may not have been p ossible to retire their old friend and r eplace it with a crisp new one. Yet, as they awakened to another d awn and saw their threadbare banner, i t heartened them and brought hope. Hope for a better world, protection for our freedom and loved ones; and, hope for a safe return. No wonder our national anthem sings out, our flag was still there. That caused me to think a little deeper about the sad state of our nation. Perhaps that resident displays the worn flag to remind me and you that we, too, are on a battlefield. It is a battlefield of ideologies and values. On the one hand are those Biblical ones that our nation was founded upon.On the other are those that would dare to tear apart and destroy our foundation of godliness. The Bible warns in Isaiah 5:20, NKJV, Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter. Sounds like the daily headlines in the news. For the sake of every American veteran who has served or is now serving, for the sake of our families and theirs, lets stand firm on the rock of our God and put actions to our faith. For he promises in 2 Chronicles 7: 14: If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Our nation may feel tattered and torn like that great symbol of our freedom. But God Almighty is our hope today as he was when our nation was founded. Lets pray it wont be long before we see our flag and our values restored and resurrected again. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent and an award-winnin g writer. Tattered, torn, yet hopeful we stand Pause And Consider Jan Merop Question: Our sons fifthg rade teacher has recently s ent home notes to the effect t hat our little darling isnt p aying attention and is missi ng homework assignments. W hen I asked what in-school c onsequences he receives, I w as basically told that he r eceives none unless I specifi cally so request. In other words, unless t eachers inform parents of p roblems (which doesnt relia bly happen), the problems g o unpunished. When I hear of a problem, p rivileges are taken away for a week or more, and my son k nows that if he brings home a report card with a bad g rade or behavior report, p rivileges are removed for t he next grading period. Is t his appropriate, and what c an I do to get the school to d o their part? Answer: To your first q uestion, yes, what youre d oing in response to being n otified of problems at s chool is appropriate. Youre m y kind of parent, in fact, all t he more so because you have t he courage to hold your son a ccountable in a culture of e xcuses. To your second question what can you do to get the teacher to do her part? my answer is probably nothing. In all too many of Americas public schools, and for a variety of reasons, classroom discipline is a farce. Its not that teachers dont want to discipline; its that they are specifically prohibited from doing anything effective when a child misbehaves (In this context, I use the term to encompass both academic and behavioral misdeeds). The problem (this should surprise no one) is lawyers and the law. For one thing, a school can be sued if a child is punished for behavior that is later discovered to be symptomatic of a disorder with which the child is supposedly afflicted. So if Johnny is punished in November for exposing himself to the class at recess, and the following March a psychologist determines Johnny has childhood bipolar disorder, Johnnys parents can sue school officials for victimizing Johnny. No, that was not lifted from a Joseph Heller novel; that is the real deal. As a consequence of institutionalized insanity of that sort, one of a principals primary responsibilities is to keep the lawyers at bay. So, playing it safe, more and more of Americas public schools are discipline free zones. Another aspect of the problem is that teachers report problems at great risk to themselves. Fifty years ago, parents were unequivocal in their support of teacher authority. All too many of todays parents, when they are informed of a problem, rise to their childrens defense. Sadly, all too many of todays principals, when parents get upset, will not back their teachers. Its that L-word thing again. Needless to say, children are no dummies. Even the child with a serious learning disability is quick to figure out that a schools discipline policy is a sham and that his parents are desperate to believe that he is incapable of dirty deeds (lest they have to deal with the horrifying implication that they are not perfect parents). And round and round we go. As your sons teacher told you, you can specifically empower the school to punish,him for not turning in assignments, not paying attention in class, and so on, but that begs the question: What, in the schools view, constitutes punishment? The teacher may not be permitted, even with your permission, to do anything more draconian than deprive your son of a smiley face sticker at the end of the day. In short, this is probably a losing battle on your part. Just do your duty at home and be thankful you wont be raising a child 20 years from now. This isnt going to get better any time soon.

Clyde Beatty Circus coming to Avon Park Special to the News-Sun AVON PARK The Top Dog winner at last years Wiener Dog Race was Baby Daisy, owned by Dylan Feickert of Sebring. Dylan reports that Daisy will definitely be back to defend her title. Daisy is now 4 years old and according to Dylans mom, Rachel, Daisy has gained some weight since last years race. But Dylan is training her and hopes to have her in running shape in time for the Nov. 13 race. Last year one handler held the dog at the starting line and another waited at the finish line. This year Ridge Area Arc will have starting chutes that look like dog houses. All five gates will open at the same time. When told about the chutes and asked how this might effect Daisys time, Rachel said, I think the new starting chutes will hurt her time because shes not used to it but Dylan is working with her. Rachel shared their trick to getting Daisy to run is to have Dylan at the finish line with a treat in his pocket to help her focus on him. Rachel said, I think Arc having a WienerFest will be a lot of fun and a great way to raise money for a good cause. Dogs are expected from across the state of Florida. Ridge Area Arcs WienerFest, which is free to the public, is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13 at the Avon Park Memorial Field. The WienerFest is sponsored by David and Doris Magowan, Fizzion, the News-Sun, Alan Jay Automotive, Citrus Animal Clinic, Dog Designs by Dana, and Duffers Sports Grille. The Wiener Walk (parade) will start at 11 a.m. with the Wiener Dog Races following at noon. There will be lots of food, starting at 8 a.m. with breakfast served by the Avon Park Knights of Columbus, to hot dogs, pulled pork, pop corn and more available from various vendors.

Who against hope believed in hope,that he might become the father of many nations,according to that which was spoken,so shall thy seed be.And being not weak in faith,he cosidered not his own body now dead,when he was about an hundred years old,neither yet the deadness of Sarahs womb:he staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief;but was strong in faith,giving glory to God;and being full persuaded that,what he had promised,he was able to perform.Though Abraham and Sarah moved beyond the physical limits of child bearing,and though the promise was delayed for many decades,God had spoken,and Abraham obediently waited for that of which was absolutely certain. Abraham knew Gods word was certain.In this passage of scripture Abraham did not stagger at the promise of God,but was strong in his faith,giving glory to God.The scripture continued saying,he was fully persuaded that,what he had promised,he was able to perform.Abraham had faith in God.He is also listed among the Faith of Patriarchs in the 11th chapter of Hebrews.There are many promises in the Word of God for the people of God.If God made the promise,you can stand assured He is able to perform it.What promise you have not seen fulfilled?

Duffers lines up entertainment Snapshots Special to the News-SunAVON PARK The South Florida Community College Museum of Florida Art and Culture presents its second exhibition of the season, Florida Frontiers: The Photography of Carlton Ward Jr. The exhibition will be on view from 12:30-4:30 p.m. through Jan. 8 at SFCC MOFAC, Highlands Campus. The exhibition features images of the Florida landscape and local cattle ranches including the Smoak and Hendrie ranches in Highlands County, which work to protect the black bear population, and the Adams ranch in Osceola County and the Lightsey ranch in Polk County, which have won awards for their environmental stewardship and conservation works. Nearly 1/5 of the state is covered by cattle ranches, Ward said. These ranches are important for our agriculture, to ensure clean water for the everglades, and to provide important wildlife habitat. Through my images, I celebrate the beautiful natural and cultural resources of our state that without our proactive protection may not exist for our future generations, Ward said. The exhibit is sponsored by Jeanmarie and Donald Appelquist and Martin Realty F-L-Aparticipating with Cabelas Trophy Properties. Ward is an eighth-generation Floridian from a pioneering ranching family. An ecologist by training, he aims to promote conservation of natural environments and cultural legacies through his photographs. As a graduate student, he wrote Conservation Photography, the first thesis on the emerging field. His first book, The Edge of Africa, the result of a three-year project with the Smithsonian Institution, received international acclaim and was the basis for a presidential reception with the United Nations. Ward regularly produces stories for newspapers and magazines, including Smithsonian, GEO, National Wildlife, Africa Geographic, Nature Conservancy and Outdoor Photographer. For his recent documentary of Florida ranchlands, Ward was featured in the June 2008 issue of Popular Photography as one of three photographers working to save vanishing America. Between international assignments, he is focused on Florida conservation issues and has begun several longterm projects celebrating our states vanishing natural heritage. Ward is a founding member of the International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP) and founded the Legacy Institute for Nature and Culture (LINC) in 2004 to promote Florida conservation through the necessary collaboration of science and art. SFCC MOFC will host a special program, Flori da Frontier: Carlton Ward J r. from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesda y, Nov. 30. Ward will discu ss and sign his book, Flori da Cowboys: Keepers of t he Last Frontier.

Do n Seymour, Senior Pastor. Phon e 452-0088.PLACESTOWORSHIP Ask a thirdgrader where their food comes from and you get some interesting answers. Some children will reply From the grocery store, while others may say from farms. Thanks to programs such as Ag Venture, where every third-grader in H ighlands County visits the fairg rounds to participate in agricultura l activities, kids are getting an e ducation about their surroundings. S ince agriculture is one of H ighlands Countys leading indust ries, making sure our kids know a bout it is important. Every person, whether young or o ld, is connected to agriculture. S ince we all eat food and wear c lothing, we each reap the benefits o f this industry. Young people need t o have a good understanding of a griculture since it affects them in t heir every day lives. Ag Venture is a hands-on, exciting program that i ntrigues kids and allows them to l earn while enjoying themselves. S tudents from public, private and e ven home schools all enjoy this l ocal program. Participating in this event is p erhaps as exciting for the presenters as it is for the kids. Hundreds of volunteers come out every year to get involved in this worthy learning experience. The Highlands Soil and Water Conservation District supports Ag Venture by sponsorship. And employees from the Highlands County Parks & Natural Resources Department participate by manning the Soil and Water booth which teaches the kids about watersheds and pollution and the water cycle. Kids walk away with a good visual on the consequences of not keeping our watersheds clean and a terrarium they can take home that demonstrates the water cycle. There are two different tracks for the youths. The classes go on one track or the other, not both. But each one features interesting agricultural presentations. One of the stations is complete with alligators where students learn about alligators in the wild and how these creatures are farmed commercially. They actually get to touch a baby alligator. Of course, where there are animals, kids are usually happy and the farm animal station is always popular. Students get to look at different types of farm animals and they learn what it takes to care for them. And what kid wouldnt want to get out of school for the day and make a milkshake? At the strawberry station, these students are shown how strawberries are grown. They also plant a strawberry plant and make a milkshake. And speaking of plants, the caladium station shows kids how caladiums are grown and they get to plant a bulb to take home. All of the stations are unique and include hands-on activities for the students. Other stations include beef, bees, citrus, dairy, forestry, grapes, horticulture, poultry and vegetables. There is something that is sure to peak every students interest. As for our staff, working the Soil and Water station is a great opportunity to teach kids about their environment and its importance. But perhaps the best part is watching them get excited about creating their own terrarium to take home. Some of the kids get so excited and ask, We get to take this home with us? They take a great deal of pride in making their creations and the interaction is wonderful. It is also encouraging to watch them see and understand how polluting the land is affecting our lakes and water bodies by observing the Enviroscape. As the y watch the colorful mock pollution (Jello or Kool-Aide) being sprinkled over the watershed and the rain washing it into the water, the y really get it. The sounds of ewww, gross, and Im not swimming in that water, make us realize they are truly getting a good understanding of just how much harm can come from a bit of litter or overuse of chemicals. Perhaps, back in the good old days it wouldnt have been neces sary to have such a program to teach kids about the importance o f agriculture since there were more farms then. But in todays world, many kids arent exposed to the agricultural world at all. Our future generation may truly not know where butter or cheese comes from. If we want our children to take the reigns on the future, isnt it important to teach them about where our food, cloth ing and shelter comes from? Ag Venture is a wonderful program, but its up to each one of u s to continue to educate our childre n and grandchildren about the impo rtance of agriculture.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID It was a contest for exactly two plays, as a fumbled snap and an incomplete pass had the Green Dragons at third-and-ten on their own 36. But from that point forward, there was little Lake Placid did wrong on their way to a 60-0 demolishing of the visiting Griffins of Gateway Charter. A.J. Gayle would carry five times for 48 yards on this opening drive, culminating in a 13-yard touchdown run, and the two-point conversion for the early 8-0 lead. After the Griffins opening play saw a five-yard loss, a fumble was pounced up by Ernie Edwards to get the ball back at the Gateway 24. Quarterback Kirk Veley found Andre Wilson beyond the defense on the next play and it was 16-0 after the Gayle conversion. Things would snowball as a Griffin drive would stall at their own 40 and after Veley scrambled for 29 yards, he again connected with Wilson on an 11-yard score. Edwards pushed in the two-point conversion and it was 24-0 with still near ly four minutes left in the ope ning quarter. And in perhaps a fittin g example of the mismatc h, Gateways first play on t he next drive was an interce ption, though it was call ed back on a roughing the pas ser penalty. Yet, the very next pla y, Nevada Weaver picked o ff the pass and returned it to t he Griffin 26. From there, Edwards an d Ryan Blount shared carri es before Edwards punched it in from seven yards out. By KATE ROWLAND Special to the News-SunSEBRING It took Sebring t hree quarters to kick into g ear, but with Tenoroc leading 1 4-7 at halftime, the Blue S treaks lived up to their nickn ame in the second half and o utscored the Titans 27-0 for a 34-14 victory in the final D istrict 9-3Aaction of the s eason at Firemens Field on F riday. Senior Evan Lewis a ccounted for the only B lue Streak offense in t he first three quarters w ith a touchdown on a s lant pass from senior q uarterback Matt G rubb. Trailing by a touchd own in the third q uarter, the Blue S treaks (7-2 overall and 4-2 d istrict) began to show signs o f life in the chilly fourth. Zack Bullocks touchdown w ith 8:54 left in the game, and a n errant extra point kick, put S ebring just one point behind T enoroc at 14-13. The first half was pretty s loppy for us, said senior Zac M orris. We were down a t ouchdown. But we picked it u p and did what we did in p ractice. We had confidence a ll the way. We persevered. Ill miss my teammates. T heyre my family. Some of t hem Ive been playing footb all with since we were seven y ears old. Sebring did not qualify for t he state playoffs but their i mprovement over the season g ives them plenty to be proud of. The Blue Streak defense was responsible for two Tenoroc turnovers and racked up four sacks in the game. On the other side of the ball, quarterback Matt Grubb, remained calm under pressure. Matt is a great kid, head coach Jared Hamlin said. Hes a smart kid and he makes great decisions for us. Each and every season hes gotten better. Grubb completed 13 passes in 17 attempts for 251 yards and four touchdowns. On the receiving end of Grubbs on-target tosses were sophomore Jake Bryan, with three catches for 43 yards; senior Evan Lewis with four catches for 64 yards and two touchdowns; senior Jaquan Williams caught four passes for 85 yards and a score; and senior Bullock got the most out of two catches with 59 yards and a touchdown. Hamlin said 10 different players carried the ball for the Blue Streaks, with sophomore Devaris Faulk leading the way with seven carries for 63 yards and a touchdown. Junior Damion Thompson had eight carries for 34 yards; and junior Benji Toney carried the ball twice for 36 yards. We had 477 yards in the game, Hamlin said. We got 226 yards rushing and 251 passing. Im very proud with the way we finished off this game tonight, coming back from 14 points down. Now were going to get focused and come back next week against Avon Park. Sebring will miss the playoffs for the seventh consecutive year due to early district losses to 3Apowerhouses Lake Wales and Winter Haven, but the Blue Streaks have one more game to play Friday, Oct. 12, on the road against perennial rival Avon Park at Joe Franza Stadium. Hamlin couldnt recall how long its been since Sebring By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK The Red Devils ended their run for the state playoffs Friday night at Joe Franza Stadium with a 27-7 loss to Tampa Catholic, who moved ahead of Avon Park into second in the final district standings. The effort was there, but the score was not, said Andy Bonjokian after the game. They are a good football team. They played heads up football and they came out on top. The Devils racked up 10 penalties for the night for a total of 60 yards, several at key junctures of the game. We shot ourselves in the foot a couple of times with stupid penalties, Bonjokian said. We showed that we could play with good teams, we just didnt stick with it, he added. Tampa Catholic struggled with injuries, losing star running back Hunter Joyner, who averages 64 yards per game and has already committed to the University of Florida, to an ankle injury after just four carries. We have faced injuries all season, said Tampa Catholics Head Coach Bob Henriquez. Losing Hunter was a big loss, but it doesnt seem like the injury is that bad. We had several young players step up to fill the gaps of injuries over the year, and it has worked out the second half of the season. Crusader freshman quarterback Chivarsky Corbett completed 12 of 16 attempts for a total of 127 yards passing. Corbett is a solid player. He is an amazing quarterback for a freshman. Unshakable, Henriquez said about the 6 185 hurler. This is our 14th year in the playoffs, and Corbett has had a lot to d o with that. Avon Parks offense rum bled for just 119 yards tota l, the Crusaders defense hol ding firm. It was the stupid pena lties, Bonjokian said. W e struggled with that throug hout the game, and it kill ed our momentum. Avon Park lost one touc hdown late in the first half of the game to a holding pena lty, and ended up leaving at the half down 14-7. Defensively, the Devi ls were able to shut down the ir running game, holdin g Tampa Catholic to just 5 7 yards on the ground. Avon Park stays at hom e next week, facing Sebring in the last game of their seaso n with the cross-county show down. We have to just get read y for next week and put th is behind us, Bonjokian sai d. Several of the guys a re looking forward to Sebrin g, and have been all year. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comWith the likes of Connor Bauer, Caitlyn Moulds and Amanda Kennedy gone to graduation, the 2010 Cross Country season could be seen as somewhat of a rebuilding year for the Blue Streaks. And though it was a holdover from last year that served as the lone advancement from Thursdays District 6-3A meet in Punta Gorda, there was a definite sense of acheivement with what the team has built this season. Although we did not place very well in the overall standings, they have improved so much throughout the course of the season, boys coach Matthew Schult said. What more could a coach ask for? I am very excited for next season already and know that we will only get better. Out of the 99 runners in the boys side of the meet, three Streaks posted sub20 minute times, though in this very competitive event, none could break the top 50.

Everyone left everything they had out on the course and their times showed that. And for Tubbs, it showed the remarkable progress shes made since last year, her freshman season. Tailing Moulds and Kennedy most of the season, she had kept pushing forward and topped the Lady Streaks at last years district meet with a 23rd-place finish. One year later, she mov ed up 15 spots while shavin g nearly two minutes off h er district time from a seaso n ago. This was a very compe titive field, Fredrikson sai d. This week will be focusin g on keeping her legs fresh an d coming up with a race strat egy in order to perform to h er fullest in an even tough er race. That race for Tubbs, t he Region 3-3Ameet, will ta ke place Friday, Nov. 12, at t he Estero Community Park wi th a 7:30 a.m. start. Continued from 1D Tubbs takes next step By WILLGRAVES Associated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Jockey fights in horse r acing are as much a part of t he sport as whips, saddles a nd the $2 bet. Most times, the dustups t ake place behind closed d oors, not in the winners c ircle. And certainly not on n ational television following a BreedersCup race. Yet Calvin Borel was a ngry following a bumpy r ide in the $500,000 B reedersCup Marathon on F riday at Churchill Downs. When he approached rival J avier Castellano to sort t hings out, it was obvious B orel who has endeared h imself to fans because of t he way he wears his heart o n his silks was upset. Moments later, the winn ers circle at Churchill D owns erupted into chaos, w ith one of the sports most c olorful characters red with r age. Borel and Castellanos v ery public tussle got raci ngs two-day Super Bowl o ff to an ugly start that left C astellano shaken and Borel p leading with security offic ials to let him go so he c ould kill his rival. Two riders who usually s ave their jostling for the r acetrack turned that ground a place typically reserved f or big smiles and even bigg er winners checks into a fight club on Friday after t he opening race of the B reedersCup. The 43-year-old Borel w aited for Castellano after t he Marathon, angry over a m id-race move in which C astellano and mount Prince W ill I Am unwittingly cut o ff horses ridden by Borel a nd Martin Garcia. The move nearly sent G arcia tumbling to the g round and blunted Borels momentum. An inquiry was ordered shortly after the race was finished. While Castellano waited to talk to track officials, Borel approached Castellano and jabbed his right hand in the 33-year-old Venezuelans face. The 5-foot-1, 110-pound Castellano then made a move toward Borel, who is 4 inches taller. Security officials struggled to separate the two, just a few yards away from where Marathon winner Eldaafers owners were posing with the BreedersCup trophy. It took several minutes for Borel his eyes bugging out and his face a deep shade of red to be restrained. His wife, Lisa, and brother Cecil each grabbed an arm and walked Borel back to the jockeysroom, where he flung off his silks. The disagreement continued out of the view of cameras in the jockey room, though Borel later apologized for his outburst on his Facebook page. It was a situation that deserved to be resolved, however, said resolution should have taken place within the privacy of the jockeys quarters, Borel wrote. Kentucky chief state steward John Veitch said officials will meet with Borel, Castellano and Garcia on Saturday morning to review videotape of the race and the fight. If officials find either jockey at fault, penalties could range from a warning to a suspension. Veitch said neither rider had previously been disciplined for fighting, and both will be allowed to ride at the track over the weekend. Borel has two mounts on the BreedersCup card Saturday, while Castellano has six. The incident, however, created an almost surreal scene at Borels home track. Afan favorite at Churchill Downs because of his trademark rail-hugging rides and his ability to turn long shots into winners, Borel was surrounded by security officials before and after each of his final two races on the first day of horse racings version of the Super Bowl. One fan shouted: Kick some (butt), Calvin. Borel declined numerous requests to speak to reporters. His agent, Jerry Hissam, said his client just wants to ride. The scuffle was a decided step out of character for the easygoing and humble Borel, a lifelong jockey who has flourished under the twin spires. In May, he tucked Super Saver along the rail, his favorite spot, to become the first jockey to win three Derbys in four years. And Borel nearly pulled off his own personal triple crown in 2009. Mine That Bird won the Derby, then Borel switched to filly Rachel Alexandra to win the Preakness before going back to Mine That Bird in the Belmont Stakes, finishing third. Though jockeys have been known to tangle on the track during races, the postrace dustup was jarring in a sport known for monied owners, big hats, seersucker suits and toothy grins in the winners circle. Not this time as a brawl more suited for a bar broke out in the tracks most revered place. Both Borel and Garcia had reason to be angry. During the race, Castellano moved into the path of Romp and Martin Garcia, causing the horse to stumble. Borel and A.U. Miner were jostled as a result. I had pressure outside me, Castellano said. I went for a hole and they said I took his lane. I dont know. I dont know. Prince Will I Am, who finished second behind winner Eldaafer, was disqualified and placed 10th while A.U. Miner was bumped up to third in a race that will be remembered more for the chaos afterward.

Sebring heading to Avon Park next And though the point after failed, it was a 30-0 lead as the first period came to a close. Ashort series and punt got the ball back to the Dragons near midfield and it took five plays to take it in again. After Nice Peragine rattled off a 15-yard run, Gayle bulled ahead for four and Veley hit Weaver on a 27-yard gain to the three before Blount put it in for a 37-0 margin. Following great kickoff coverage, Gateway was backed up to their own five when a bad shotgun snap resulted in a safety for a 390 lead and when an onside kick attempt went 12 yards backward, it was a reverse that ended up in the hands of center Anthony Canevari that got Lake Placids next touchdown from eight yards out. And when the Dragons got it back the next time, head coach Jason Hold en followed that example b y allowing rushing opprort unities for Alex Barajas, a two-yard gain, Laure nt Lollis, a four-yard ru n, Rontrell Strickland, a nin eyarder, Austin Gibbs, 1 0 yards, and Addison Walke r, two yards, before Tyl er Stewart got the touchdow n from four yards out. Jamil Abueloufs ext ra point kick made it 53 -0 before the first half merc ifully ended. With the 40+ poin t, rolling-clock, mercy-rule in effect for the second ha lf, things went quickly, but t he Dragons had time for o ne more score. After picking off a Griffin pass, Lollis w as rewarded with the chance to score and soon did on a five-yard run for the fin al margin of victory.
