Kyle Albritton exercises with Naiche.' Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Highlands County Sheriff's Office recently lost one of its most successful crime fighters, one who would go to great lengths through heat, sandspurs, palmettos and anything else to bring suspects into custody with never a complaint. "Naiche," (pronounced neechee) one of the HCSO bloodhounds, died on Nov. 5. Naiche served the HCSO for 10 years and was the oldest K-9 deputy before he retired from full duty in September. He was diagnosed by two separate veterinarians with a nasal tumor. Naiche put up a good fight but his condition worsened by the day, his long-time handler, Sgt. Kyle Albritton, said. Naiche lived with Albritto n while the two were a team and th en during his short retirement. Albritton, who called Naiche h is "best friend," had a hard time com ing up with words to describe h is former partner. "Statistically, Naiche was secon d to none," Albritton said. "He pr oduced more physical apprehensio ns than any other K-9 in the history of the Highlands County Sheriff 's Office. HCSO K-9 unit loses most successful dog Naiche' was responsible for 216 arrests, found 44 missing people Say Ahhhhh' News-Sun photo by SAMANTHAGHOLAR Dental hygienist, Denise Mullins (seated) prepares to place sealant onto 4 of Milinda Vega's teeth.

News-Sun staffSEBRING It was a night of good food and wonderful stories shared as the March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction took place Thursday night at the Four Points Sheraton Sebring, Chateau Elan. Stealing the show was not necessarily the food, as one would think at such an event, but it was actually an 8-month-old baby, Harper Lynn Holton. Many readers may remember the tragic story of her big sister. On Nov. 18, 2008 Chloe Lynn Holton was born prematurely to Lawrence and Sarah Holton. She weighed just 3 pounds, 14 ounces at birth. After 14 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit her lungs were strong and she was eating well, so at 4 pounds less weight than a gallon of ice cream she went home. On Jan. 14, 2009 Sarah announced to Lunch Club Wednesday, a local ladies networking group, that she and Chloe would be collecting items for families with babies in the NICU. Sarah had first-hand experience with the struggle and wanted to make care packages with basic necessities for other families spending days at a time visiting their babies in the hospital. However, later that evening at home, little Chloe Lynn died. Then, at last year's Chefs Auction, Sarah and Lawrence, both March of Dimes volunteers for the past six years, were able to announce that they were expecting their second child. Ironically, the tale of two sisters does not end there as many learned March of Dimes benefits from Chefs Auction See HCSO, page 7A See STUDENTS, page 5A See CHEFS, page 7A Related editorial, page 3A By TRAVIS GRIGGS Pensacola News JournalPENSACOLA Environmental co ncerns led the Florida Legislature la st spring to require mandatory septic syste m inspections. But a public backlash, driven by t he potential costs it carries, has legislato rs promising to reverse the new law as soo n as possible. The sometimes fiery public protest h as focused mainly on the potential costs to homeowners inspections could cost $500, and if major problems are uncovered, residents could face thousands in repair bills. "It's absolutely unnecessary. Only a very few septic tanks have a problem, but they want to punish all of us," said Sandy Wyatt, 58, a custom home builder from Chumuckla. "People can't afford this mess right now. Who 's going to take out the fence and dig u p grandma's camellia trees? ... Who's goin g to pay for this stuff? Me." Faced with an onslaught of angry ca lls and letters, Panhandle politicians are ra llying to repeal the law before it goes in to effect Jan. 1. "We've already drawn up the bill.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Where to live? Whom to hire? What's a voting card and where are the bathrooms? More than 100 members of Congress arrive in Washington this coming week for the first time since winning election, trading the loftiness of campaign speeches for mundane lessons in how to do their new jobs. It's freshman orientation on Capitol Hill, and the larger-than-usual class of 2010 is getting a crash course on how to navigate the next two years. Talk of changing the nation's direction? That's on the back burner for now. The newly elected House members 85 Republicans, a meager nine Democrats need actual directions around their new workplace. The Senate is having its own orientation at the same time. Instead of American exceptionalism, his election night theme, Rep.-elect Tim Scott, R-S.C., is focused on Washington's exceptional rental prices. "Nothing here is affordable, is what I've learned," says Scott, who might share an apartment with classmates. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, RIll., told supporters in his victory speech that he would "stand strong in the epic battle that we have in front of us to take back our country." But come Monday, Kinzinger will be looking for a onebedroom apartment, setting up an interview with a prospective chief of staff and figuring out whether he wants to deal with a commute or live within walking distance of the Capitol. Even before the freshmen learn lawmaking, they'll be figuring out how to live with a new set of rules, customs and rituals. Here to help: an array of congressional committees and veterans, and a constellation of foundations and lobbyists. The second-ranking Republican, Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia, had a 144-page book in the mail to new members within hours of Election Day. "Hit The Ground Running" explains the nuts and bolts of setting up a congressional office, hiring staff, managing the office budget and being an employer. It also offers some general rules of the road. "Do: Get answers for any ethical questions you may have if you are in doubt," according to the manual, an updated version of one originally sent out by former House Republican leader Dick Armey, R-Texas. "Don't: Completely disappear from the public" between Election Day and the new Congress. "Even though you won't take office until January, many of your constituents will view you as their member of Congress." Lodgings? Taken care of at least for this week. The House Administration Committee, charged with the House's day-to-day operations, is putting the group up at the L'Enfant Plaza Hotel and shuttling the members to and from the Capitol. Food? Virtually everywhere the incoming lawmakers go during their Sundayto-Friday stay. Receptions, working lunches and welcome dinners dot the schedule. In between, members-tobe attend seminars on everything from setting up an office to hiring, and how the electronic voting system works on the House floor. Aschedule obtained by The Associated Press shows a wow-worthy social schedule. The freshmen will hear from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Sunday and dine with the man in line to replace her, Ohio Republican John Boehner. Pelosi hosts an open house Monday in what, for now, is her Capitol suite. Dinner follows next door in magnificent Statuary Hall, according to the schedule. There also are special events for their aides and spouses. The Congressional Management Foundation, a nonprofit group funded by dozens of corporations and industry groups with business before Congress, is hosting a reception Monday and, two days later, a seminar, "Navigating the First 90 Days." "Everyone has told me expect more information than you can possibly digest, but just take good notes," said Rep.-elect Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, one of the few Democrats who will be attending.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Members of the c ity council will be asked to i ncrease water and sewer deposits at t heir regular meeting Tuesday n ight. Since 1997, water and sewer d eposits have been $65 for each s ervice across the board that is, t he same amount for connections i nside city limits or outside city l imits, whether or not the consumer i s a property owner or tenant. Unfortunately, said Bob Boggus, the city's administrative coordinator, an in-depth study of the city's water and sewer bad debt losses has shown those losses averaged $29,000 a year over the last four years. The city has determined 92 percent of its utility bad debt losses are incurred by renters of property, 5 percent by property owners, and 3 percent by businesses. "At present, the city's deposit requirements are often insufficient to cover the amount owed at the time of disconnect," Boggus has warned the council. Part of that problem is a result of timing. With the normal billing cycle, a consumer may be two months delinquent before being disconnected for lack of payment which is why city staff recommends the council raise the deposits to $70 for property owners in and out of the city and to $100 for tenants or renters in and out of the city. This means a property owner would deposit $140 for water and sewer, but a tenant using both services would deposit $200. "The proposed deposit increases will provide the city greater security against revenue losses due to non-payment, and addresses the losses that are occurring from rental properties," Boggus wrote the cou ncil. He estimates the increas ed deposits would save the city at t he least $14,000 a year, and emph asizes the city has not raised t he deposit requirement in 13 years. By contrast, Avon Park requires a $100 deposit that covers both wat er and sewer from property owne rs and $250 deposit from renters; La ke Placid requires $100 deposit f or each service whether or not the co nsumer owns or rents.

Update Associated PressTHE VILLAGES Former President George W. Bush doesn't miss much about the White House except the pampering. In a rally Saturday at The Villages, a sprawling central Florida retirement community, Bush reminisced about the luxuries of America's highest office, including the convenience of Air Force One and never waiting in traffic jams. He recalled, in the days after leaving office, being told by his wife Laura that doing dishes was his new domestic policy agenda. And he described how odd it felt taking his dog Barney for a post-presidential walk, plastic bag in hand. "I really don't miss much about the presidency," Bush told a crowd of more than 3,000 people. "I miss being pampered." The 43rd president said, most of all, he missed being commander in chief of the U.S. military. "Imagine what it was li ke to return the salute of m en and women," he said in h is 30-minute speech. Bush also described h is "love-at-first-sigh t" moment when he first m et Laura, and he spoke at length about the 9/ 11 attacks. "I still hear the voices of the loved ones searching f or survivors," he said. The Villages is heavi ly Republican and many in t he crowd waved Americ an flags or wore hats notin g their military service. Som e who gathered to hear Bu sh speak said he has be en unfairly blamed for t he country's problems. "I think all presidents g et a bum rap," said Lin da Zwick, 60. "I think he ma de decisions to keep our cou ntry safe." Bush is on a national to ur promoting his new memo ir, "Decision Points." Bush on post-presidency: 'I miss being pampered' FORTLAUDERDALE, (AP) The woman who helped Rick Scott win the governor's mansion has a new role.

My writing a column like this depends on having freedom of speech. I have also mentioned that this freedom comes at a cost. That cost is that other people get the same right, and saying you support free speech means you are willing to run the risk of being offended. Well, I just stumbled across an expression of free speech that has me totally offended. And it has me wondering if there's some speech that needs to be slapped down, First Amendment or no First Amendment. What am I talking about? I am referring to an e-book currently being sold on Amazon.com. An e-book is an electronic book one that can be read on a device such as a Kindle. It's not that hard to publish an e-book. I myself have a short story for sale on Amazon.com, and plan to have more available soon. That helps explain how this book saw the light of day, because I can't imagine a publisher touching it with a sterilized stick. The book is titled I am not kidding "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure." Aperson named Phillips Greaves II is listed as the author. The product description states, "This is my attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certian (sic) rules for these adults to follow. I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter (sic) sentences should they ever be caught." I haven't bought the book, but looking at the product description and realizing the author couldn't even manage a simple spell check tells me it's probably not high quality work. Amazon's selling the book has a lot of people up in arms. There are more than 1,000 comments, overwhelmingly negative. Many call for Amazon to pull the book from the site. But Amazon isn't backing down. They issued the following statement: "Amazon believes it is cen sorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their me ssage is objectionable. Amazon does not support or promote hatred or crim inal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions ." It all sounds nice, neat, and going along with the First Amendment. We hav e to allow this because we are a nation that supports free speech for everyone, even those who say objectionable things. But I'm having a problem with that argument in this case. Pedophilia is a criminal act. It is illegal. Abook th at tells you how to commit that act is telling you how to break the law. We need something like this? Really? Why? And now that I think about it, maybe the problem isn't Greaves'or Amazon's First Amendme nt rights. Maybe the problem is, what is right? Teaching people how to harm children is wrong. Allowing such a book to see the light of day may b e a right in our nation, but i t isn't the right thing to do. I still believe in the Firs t Amendment. I'm still against censorship. I still believe free speech means I'm going to be offended now and then and that to enjoy the right myself I have to pay that price. But I also believe that Amazon is wrong to sell this book. And I hope they bow to public opinion and pull it. Does that make me inconsistent? Editor's note: After thi s column was submitted, Amazon is reported to hav e pulled Greaves'book. It is no longer available throug h Amazon's Web site. Laura Ware is a Sebring re sident. She can be contacted by e-mail at bookwormlady @ embarqmail.com Some things don't need guides Laura's Look Laura Ware W hen the government gets i nvolved in granting p ermission to go to t he bathroom, they m ay have gone too f ar. For example, new legislat ion (SB550) kicks in on Jan 1 and restricts and requires i nspections and fines if a h omeowner uses a septic tank. On the one side is Florida's g overnment Division of E nvironment and Health, w hich is concerned about brok en tanks. They slipped in a b ill this year that requires regu lar pumping, immediate and f ive-year inspections of septic t anks. In some cases, those t anks will have to be excavate d and visually inspected. On the other side of the d ebate are those who feel that i f it ain't broke, don't go digg ing it up. And no one appreciates the e xtra, um, paperwork. The law's intent is to lower t he amount of nitrogen and p hosphorous levels in Florida w ater, but no scientific data h as been presented to show w here septic tanks are the culp rit of that detrimental effect. N owhere in the debate before t he bill was passed was any a ctual scientific study to supp ort regulation and inspection o f the septic tanks already in t he ground and not making a v isible, and potentially s melly, problem. So why incur the extra e xpense of the regulation in h ard economic times for something that is not really a proven problem? In fact, the effects of other sources of potential pollutants, like fertilizer and industrial sources, have already been proven scientifically to be the largest contributors to those pollutants in the water sources. County and city governments across the state, along with hundreds of citizens, argue that implementation of the new bill would cause an undue burden on a majority of Florida homeowners, and the News-Sun agrees. Sensing the growing tide of residential backlash, Sen. Don Gaetz (R-Niceville) and Rep. Marti Coley (R-Marianna) have made noises that they are going to introduce legislation to repeal the forced septic inspections. When the government begins to regulate when you can go to the bathroom, it is too much government intervention for sure. The state government should push back the date to implement this fiasco and really study the situation from a scientific view. Homeowners and state agencies now have to either pursue or wait out the next round of legislation, or potentially spend tens of thousands solving a problem that is not a problem just to have the legislation reversed. It is unclear if the legislation is actually needed, and unclear if it should ever be initiated, but at this point, all we can say is that it's a hot mess for sure. Septic debate a hot mess New commissioners need to remember how they got there E ditor: I am very sad that one of the p eople I voted for came up with t he Highlands County Sheriff's b uilding, and how what a waste it i s! even before he took oath or s worn in. My vote is very serious t o me and very valuable to me. I a m sure sorry I wasted it on him. Does he not have a clue that a long with the sheriff's building c omes infrastructure that this count y so much needs? Is he going to b e of the good ole boy" kind? T hat we do not need or want. What is next for him to have? To h ave stink holes and sink holes f rom the money grabbers? I am t alking about using up precious w ater and habitat on the new towns w e have no need for, South Lake P lacid, North Lake Placid, Lake P lacid Groves and the Blue Head R anch. People of Highlands County we h ave too many good homes sitting e mpty to allow this building to s tart here. We don't need more h ousing for contractors to house i llegals in if in fact that is their a im. Is it? Keep our county beautiful and c lean water and not just a cesspool o f unwanted houses. Just because w e voted for you does not give you a n open forum to do as you please. Jeff Carlson should step down; he made the choice to break the law. We should not reward him for his breaking the law. As tax-paying citizens of this county we should demand he step down. And not let him draw from this county any longer. C.F. Neeley Lake PlacidPromises made, promises kept?Editor: I can only conclude that the voters were confused and afraid. What with tens of millions of dollars of political ads demonizing President Obama as the cause of the bad economy, voters traditionally blamed the current administration for this disaster. Corporate America got $3 trillion free bailout funds to save them, but did not use any of it to provide regional banks money to lend to small businesses. Instead they invested it for even more profit. Question: Will the Republicans provide promised jobs before the Nov. 2012 election? President Obama might get credit. It took nine years to develop this catastrophe and even though President Obama and the Congress turned it around in one and a half years, they were faulted because they could not resolve the crisis. Those responsible for this crisis were not held accountable; in fact, they were rewarded for a second chance, as noted by Senator Rubio. Now that is ironic. Marco Rubio, Charlie Crist and Jeb Bush were at the helm when Florida was nearly bankrupted. State unemployment levels were 11-12 percent; the state trust funds were raided for billions of dollars. Privatization was a cruel hoax, costing the taxpayers more money. Yet, they are still in power. Governor Scott promises jobs; the first thing he will do is cut government jobs; the second is to cut taxes. Quite a formula. I fear for the working class and retirees who put in 30-40 years building a retirement, only to see it disappear. They were the ones left with the bill. Gabriel Read Avon ParkRailroad work hurt club's workEditor: The Highlands Shrine Club located at 2604 State Rd. 17, Avon Park would like to express our appreciation to all of our Highlands County friends and neighbors for your support of the Shrine Children's Hospitals and our club throughout the years. We recently experienced a real set back with the closing of State Road 17 at the railroad crossing for repairs. The repairs were needed but the road closing made it almost impossible to get to our facilities, which hurt all of our activities supported by the community. With the road now open and Christmas just around the corner, we look forward to seeing all of our neighbors and friends returning to enjoy the every Saturday morning $4 breakfast, shopping at the flea market and our two stores. In addition to the Saturday activities, we are hosting a Spaghetti Dinner on Wednesday, Nov. 17 from 4-7 p.m. for only $7 and the public is invited. Thanks again for your patients and support during this difficult period and we look forward to seeing you soon. Jerry Higginbotham President Highlands Shrine ClubAdoptive and foster children, teens need homesEditor: As the holidays approach, we eagerly look forward to celebrating and gathering as a family. As we give thanks for our blessings this Thanksgiving, let us remember the thousands of children in foster care who dream of celebrating this cherished holiday with a family of their own. November is deemed National Adoption Month. In the United States, there are 114,500 children in foster care who need permanent, loving families. In Florida alone, there are more than 2,000 children; and locally there are over 75 children and teenagers waiting for an adoptive family. National Adoption Month is a collective national effort to raise awareness of the 114,500 children in foster care waiting to find permanent, loving families. During November, states, communities, public and private organizations, businesses, families, and individu als celebrate adoption. Across the nation, activities and observances such as recognition dinners, public awareness and recruitment campaigns, and speci al events spotlight the needs of children who need permanent familie s. It also includes National Adoption Day which is observed in courthouses across the nation as thousands of adoptions are finalized simultaneously. As the chief executive officer f or Heartland for Children, I call upo n our community to consider adopting and fostering local children. There are over 75 local children and teenagers right now who are available for adoption. In additio n, there is a vital need for caring ind ividuals/families to foster local children whose own families are i n crisis and unable to provide for their essential well being. If you have a desire to adopt o r foster a child, contact Heartland f or Children at (863) 519-8900, ext. 289 or visit www.heartlandforchil dren.org. On behalf of the childre n we serve, I appreciate the opportu nity to call attention to the need f or community support for local adop tive and foster children and teenagers.

Septic tank law stirs up stink R osa counties. John Broxson, elected recentl y as a state representative from Santa Rosa, l isted repeal as one of his first goals. But with all eyes focused on the price tag, t here has been little discussion about the w ater pollution issues the law was designed t o address. State Sen. Lee Constantine, R-Altamonte S prings, the legislator who championed the c ontroversial law, said the most obvious point has been lost in the flurry of controversy. "People should fix their septic tanks when they're broken," said Constantine, who left office because of term limits. "This is something that harms all of us. It's important, and they're not getting it. This is important to our future. This is polluting our rivers and our streams and our springs." Speaking on the phone from his office in central Florida, Constantine said the shortterm costs shouldn't blind Florida residents to the long-term consequences.

"After the baby teeth fall o ut and the adults replace t hem, sometimes they are m ore susceptible to cavities a nd the tooth sealant is p laced on. It's good to get it d one at about this age," said D r. Barb Platte. Platte, along with Drs. S tephen and Diane Hulen, d ental hygienist Denise M ullins, and dental assistants L ynnetta Mann and Jaclyn M cGovern spent approxim ately 15-20 minutes with e ach student they saw. Some of the students had m ultiple teeth that needed a ttention, but the staff was c areful and precise throughout the procedure and the students were at ease once it started. The 24 students all received the dental care free through the county-wide sealant program. Since it began in 1998, the Hulens have been a part of the program. "We've seen every student in the school system at one time or another," said Stephen Hulen. The Hulens worked together on many of the students on Friday and spend much of their time volunteering as part of the program. "It's a huge group effort, the doctors all over the county are a part of this. I can count on one hand the doctors that don't participate in it. Everyone works hard to make this program work," said Diane Hulen. The program has helped many families who can not always afford dental care to at least have some assistance so that children can recognize and practice appropriate dental habits. "It's a wonderful program. It's a everyone working together. Everyone actively takes part in this sealant program," said Gonzalez. The students braved the bright lights and shiny tools of the doctors and came out with tips on how to keep their permanent teeth and their gums healthy.

By BETSYBLANEY Associated PressLUBBOCK, Texas O ne of the most conservat ive justices on the U.S. S upreme Court and one of t he most liberal ones s parred Friday over capital p unishment, the direct elect ion of senators and various o ther constitutional quest ions during a rare public d ebate that highlighted their p hilosophical differences. Antonin Scalia, 74, the l ongest-serving current just ice, appointed by R epublican President R onald Reagan, and S tephen Breyer, 72, a ppointed by Democrat Bill C linton, shared the stage in f ront of a crowd of thous ands during a West Texas e vent organized by Texas T ech University Law S chool. They particularly clashed o n the question of capital p unishment. Scalia argued that while t here's room for debate a bout whether the death p enalty is a "good idea or a b ad idea," it is not cruel and u nusual punishment. "There's not an ouncew orth of room for debate as t o whether it constitutes c ruel and unusual punishm ent because, at the time t he Eighth Amendment was adopted the cruel and unusual punishments clause it was the only punishment for a felony. It was the definition of a felony. It's why we have Western movies because horse thieving was a felony." Breyer said 200 years ago, people thought flogging at a whipping post was not cruel and unusual. "And indeed there were whipping posts where people were flogged virtually to death up until the middle of the 19th century," he said. "If we had a case like that today I'd like to see how you'd vote." The two bandied about other issues, including Brown vs. The Board of Education, the landmark high court decision in the 1950s that outlawed school segregation case, cable television rulings, and how they view cases that come before them. Later, Scalia returned to the issue of flogging, saying it's "stupid" but "not unconstitutional, which is stupid. There's a lot of stuff that stupid that's not constitutional." Scalia said he has no interest in what legislators intended when making a particular law. Breyer countered, saying judges need to go back and find out the purpose legislators had when crafting a bill. "I don't at all look to what I think the legislature thought," Scalia said. "I frankly don't care what the legislature thought." Breyer responded quickly, saying, "That's the problem," which brought thunderous laughter from the crowd. "You've got to go back to the purpose of the legislation, find out what's there," Breyer said. "That's the democratic way, cause you can then hold that legislature responsible, rather than us, who you can't control." At the end, the two were asked what they would change about the Constitution. "Not much," Breyer said. "It's a miracle and we see that through" our work.

By MITCH WEISS Associated PressHICKORY, N.C. Police w ere confident a frecklef aced disabled 10-year-old g irl was killed, but the myst ery of how she died deepe ned when police said a set of r emains was uncovered five m iles away from where one o f her bones was found. The bone, discovered in s ome brush alongside Zahra B aker's prosthetic leg, was d iscovered in an area near w here the family lived until m id-September. Zahra's stepm other, Elisa Baker, is curr ently in jail, charged with t rying to throw off investigat ors with a bogus ransom n ote. Her father, Adam B aker, has been arrested on c harges unrelated to Zahra's d isappearance and is free on b ail. Recently, Elisa Baker b egan cooperating with p olice and led them to the a reas where the remains and t he bone were found, though s he has not been charged in Z ahra's death. "I've been dreading this m oment from early on in the i nvestigation," said Hickory P olice Chief Tom Adkins, w ho explained that investigat ors matched the bone with t he child's DNA. "We have r ecovered enough physical e vidence to think we have f ound Zahra." Soon after Zahra was r eported missing, investigat ors cast doubt on accounts g iven by her father and stepm other. Police had trouble f inding anyone other than Z ahra's parents who had seen h er alive in the weeks before h er disappearance, and a susp icious early morning fire o ccurred at the family's home s everal hours before she was r eported missing. It was then that police disc overed a ransom note addressed to Adam Baker's boss on the windshield of Baker's car. Police went to that man's house, and found him and his daughter to be fine. Elisa Baker, 42, admitted writing the note and has been charged with obstruction of justice, police said. Adam Baker, 33, is facing one count each of assault with a deadly weapon and failure to return rental property, two counts of communicating threats and five counts of writing worthless checks, authorities said. Zahra, whose cancer forced her to use a prosthetic leg and hearing aids, was reported missing by her parents Oct. 9. They said she was last seen in her bed at their home in Hickory, about 50 miles northwest of Charlotte. Zahra was born in Australia and moved to North Carolina about two years ago after her father met his soonto-be wife online. Zahra's friends and relatives in Giru, Australia, described her as an outgoing, happy girl despite the cancer, and said she didn't want to come to the U.S. "Investigators, agents, officers and staff who worked on this case are devastated that we were not able to find Zahra alive and bring her home safely," said Adkins, who wouldn't answer any questions at a news conference. District Attorney James Gaither Jr. refused to say if the girl was dismembered or if any more charges were imminent. "I'm not going to discuss that right now," Gaither said. Neighbors and relatives have said that Elisa Baker had a short temper and was abusive toward her stepdaughter. Caldwell County Department of Social Services investigated the family because Zahra went to school with bruises and a teacher alerted school officials, who have said they are prohibited by law from discussing the case. Zahra's friends and family in Australia were less than thrilled when she moved away, especially since her medical treatments were free there. Kim Wright, who became something of a surrogate mother to Zahra in Australia, told The Associated Press they became friends four years ago at a cancer fundraising event. She was sitting in a chair waiting for her head to be shaved to raise money when Zahra approached, took her hand and told her not to be scared. Zahra was diagnosed with bone cancer about five years ago. She had her leg amputated and a few months later, doctors discovered tumors in her lungs. She had chemotherapy, but the treatment led to a partial hearing loss. Still, she remained upbeat, attending a camp for children with cancer and inspiring her fellow campers by taking part in all the physical activities. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, November 14, 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 "Naiche will be remembered for much more than just his success.

After I had my knee replacement surgery, the VA recommended I go to Bowyer PT for my therapy. From the minute I walked in, I felt the caring of the staff. I hold the utmost respect for my therapist, Keith. He knew my limits & was able to motivate me to make improvements despite my pain. I was able to see the gains I made after each session. I felt the whole staff was behind my recovery. After my sessions for my knee, I started on therapy for chronic back pain, upon approval from the VA Humana. I was asked where I wanted to attend therapy. There was no hesitation on my part, I chose Bowyer PT. I cannot thank Keith & his staff enough for all their help and motivation.

Special to the News-SunWAUCHULA Cattle show enthusiasts across Florida won't want to miss the 2010 Hardee Preview Show, Dec. 10-11. This statewide event, sponsored by Peace River Electric Cooperative, is a family-friendly opportunity for all ages. Starting with a free clinic on Friday, the show provides an excellent opportunity for cattle exhibitors to prepare for local County and State Fairs. The Friday and Saturday event, to be held at the Hardee Fairgrounds Cattlemen's Arena, Wauchula, features five divisions, including a steer division. All of the top prizes are sponsored and 100 percent of entry fees are paid out to division and showmanship winners as prize money. The second annual show features more awards and a new cow/calf class. "We are thrilled to host this event and are very excited about the showmanship competition. In this show, exhibitors will have the opportunity to help their younger brother or sister show their animal, while giving their parents pointers in adult showmanship," said Nell McCauley, chief marketing and member services officer, Peace River Electric. She adds, "Every participant in the show will receive a Hardee County Preview Show Shirt and will walk out of the ring with more experience and at least a ribbon." In addition to the cattle show, a free din2010 Hardee Preview Show open to all Florida exhibitors See SHOW, page 4B Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID On Monday, Golden Corral will thank thousands of active-duty and retired United States military personnel for their service with a free dinner buffet and beverage, while raising donations for the Disabled American Veterans (DAV). Atradition started nine years ago to celebrate our nation's heroes, Golden Corral's Military Appreciation Monday has served more than 2.5 million complimentary meals to military personnel and generated nearly $4.1 million in contributions for state and local DAVchapters. "We have 45,000 employees in 485 restaurants nationwide that are very passionate about supporting our military service men and women and look forward to supporting Military Appreciation Monday annually," said Ted Fowler, president and chief executive officer of Golden Corral. "While the current economy is challenging, we remain committed to recognizing the military through this program and look forward to reaching three million meals served and $5 million raised this year." Golden Corral has enlisted Gary Sinise, celebrated actor/director and Collective Soul, the platinum award-winning band, to record public service announcements for Milita ry Appreciation Monda y. Sinise and Collective So ul are all actively involved in supporting active-duty an d retired military personn el through a variety of organ izations and initiativ es including tours to milita ry installations overseas.

Who h as time to review their bene fits and tax paperwork w hen holiday planning l ooms overhead? But what if spending a f ew minutes on such mund ane tasks could shave hund reds of dollars off your t axes? Here are a few sugg estions: Review your 401(k). If y ou haven't already maxed o ut, ask your employer if y ou can make a catch-up c ontribution to your 401(k), 4 03(b) or 457 plan before y ear's end. Most people can c ontribute up to $16,500 in 2 010, plus an additional $ 5,500 if they're over 50. If you make pretax contrib utions, your taxable income i s reduced, which in turn l owers your taxes. Plus, if y our employer offers matchi ng contributions (essentialCut your taxes Personal Finance Jason Alderman See TIPS, page 2B

ly, free money), be sure to contribute at least enough to take full advantage of the match. The "Retirement Contribution Effects on Your Paycheck" calculator at www.dinkytown.com can help estimate the impact on your taxes. Note: The maximum 2010 contribution to a regular or Roth IRAis $5,000 ($6,000 for those 50 and older), but you have until April 15, 2011. Exhaust your FSAbalances. If you participate in employer-sponsored health care or dependent care flexible spending accounts (FSAs), which let you use pretax dollars to pay for eligible expenses, be sure to spend the full balance before the plan-year deadline (sometimes up to 75 days into the following year); otherwise, you'll forfeit the remaining balance. You can use your health care FSAfor copayments, deductibles and medical devices (e.g., glasses, contact lenses, braces); however, effective January 1, 2011, over-the-counter medicines will only be eligible with a doctor's prescription (an exception is made for insulin), so you may want to stock up now. Read IRS Publication 502 for a complete list of allowable and non-allowable expenses at www.irs.gov. Charitable contributions. If you itemize deductions this year, charitable contributions made to IRSapproved organizations by December 31, 2010, are generally tax-deductible. (See IRS Publication 78 for a complete list of organizations.) If you've got extra cash now and want to lower your 2010 taxes even further, consider moving up donations you would have made in 2011. Energy tax credits. Allowable tax credits for certain energy-efficient improvements to principal residences will be reduced after December 31, 2010, unless Congress votes to extend 2010 levels. Until then, you can claim a tax credit for 30 percent of the total cost of eligible products purchased in 2009 and 2010, up to a maximum combined credit of $1,500 per household. Eligible products include: biomass stoves; heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems; insulation; roofs (metal and asphalt); windows and doors; and non-solar water heaters. Carefully review the Energy Star website (www.energystar.gov/taxcredits) to make sure your purchases qualify. Gifts. You're allowed to bestow a total of $1 million in gifts during your lifetime before the federal gift tax kicks in. One way to exceed that limit and avo id having to file a Gift Tax Return is by giving separate, annual gifts of up to $13,000 per year, per perso n. (Married couples filing join tly can give $26,000 per recipient.) Rules for gift an d estate taxes are complex, so read IRS Publication 950 and consult your financial advisor.

Fall Fall i nto Savings Savings Continued from page 1B BUSINESS Special to the News-SunWAUCHULASince its format ion through President Franklin D. R oosevelt's New Deal program, P eace River Electric Cooperative ( PRECO), headquartered in W auchula, has grown exponentially. T oday, spanning 10 central Florida c ounties, the cooperative serves the e lectricity needs of nearly 35,000 c onsumers across almost 4,000 m iles of power lines. One of PRECO's earliest memb ers, Elizabeth Abbott, still receives e lectricity from the co-op after m ore than 60 years. Abbott, a Fort Green Springs resi dent, has lived most of her full life i n rural Hardee County. Born and r aised in the state of Maine, Abbott s upported the World War II effort b y working as a riveter in an airplane factory, married the first and only soldier she met on the job, moved to Florida a short time later in 1946, and with her husband, Albert "Jr." Abbott, owned and operated a local grocery store for 11 years. Abbott has another distinction to add to her life story she is listed as Peace River Electric Cooperative's member No. 1. Recently, the co-op reached a milestone by issuing member No. 100,000. Member numbers are not reused, so, as individuals and businesses come and go in PRECO's service area, new sequential numbers are assigned. In 1940, when no stockholderowned utility would serve rural areas, local residents wanting the benefits of electricity joined together to form the cooperative. Afew years later in PRECO's early history, member numbers were assigned to all accounts and the Abbotts became member No. 1. Growing up in a city, Abbott enjoyed the advantages of having electricity in her childhood home. At the conclusion of the war, she and her husband traveled to rural Florida where they purchased a home a home with no electricity. "I was 18. It really didn't bother me," she said. "It was like an adventure." Life was different before electricity came to their new home. "We started with three kerosene lamps," she adds, "...and I would only cook in the daylight, so I wouldn't need a lamp." In the days before they received electricity: "We would hear about it and hear about it, then someone came out (from PRECO) and yes, we wanted it." Hiring an electrician to wire their home, they soon had one electric light in every room. Many things changed after the Abbotts received electric service. They soon added labor saving devices. "It was wonderful to add a washing machine. It was my first appliance" she said. "Then my husband got a pump so we could have running water in the house, because we had a pitcher pump on the back porch." What were their first power bi lls like? "Around $2," she said. "If it had been any more, we couldn 't have paid it." In 1959, the couple built a ne w home a short distance away but st ill enjoyed the benefits of receivin g power from PRECO. When asked what the co-op 's greatest asset over the years h as been, she replies, "Service." Elizabeth and Jr. celebrated 5 8 years of marriage before his dea th in 2003. Today, she still lives in t he home they shared for so man y years, a home full of fond mem ories. PRECO is grateful for the oppo rtunity to serve long-term, dedicat ed members like the Abbotts.

By RANDOLPH E. SCHMID Associated PressWASHINGTON The Postal Service said Friday it lost $8.5 billion last year despite deep cuts of more than 100,000 jobs and other reductions in recent years. The post office had estimated it would lose $6 billion to $7 billion, but a sharp decline in mail took a toll. Increased use of the Internet and the recession, which cut advertising and other business mail, meant less money for the agency. For the year that ended Sept. 30, the post office had income of $67.1 billion, down $1 billion from the previous year. Expenses totaled $70 billion, a decline of about $400 million. The post office also was required to make a $5.5 billion payment for future retiree health benefits. "Over the last two years, the Postal Service realized more than $9 billion in cost savings, primarily by eliminating about 105,000 fulltime equivalent positions more than any other organization, anywhere," chief financial officer Joe Corbett said in a statement. "We will continue our relentless efforts to innovate and improve efficiency. However, the need for changes to legislation, regulations and labor contracts has never been more obvious." The post office is currently in contract negotiations with two of its unions, with two more scheduled to be negotiated next year. The loss of $8.5 billion in 2010 was $4.7 billion more than the previous year. Mail volume totaled 170.6 billion pieces, compared with 176.7 billion in 2009, a decline of 3.5 percent. At the same time, volume was declining the post office was required to begin service to thousands of new addresses to accommodate population growth and new businesses. The post office has asked Congress for permission to reduce mail delivery to fivedays-a-week and to eliminate annual payments for future retiree health benefits. Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del., blamed the loss on the recession and "operating restraints placed on postal management." The result, he said, may represent the most serious threat to the post office in its 200-year history. "If corrective action is not taken quickly, the Postal Service will likely run out of cash and borrowing authority by this time next year, placing its ability to continue operations in serious jeopardy," said Carper, who urged quick congressional action. Fredric V. Rolando, president of the National Association of Letter Carriers, said the loss "comes as no surprise." "For the Postal Service to improve its financial situation, the government must let the USPS manage its financial affairs in the most effective manner possible, like any other business," he said. "Essential to that process would be for Congress to fix an onerous congressional mandate from 2006, which obligates the Postal Service to make annual payments of $5.5 billion to pre-fund future retiree health benefits. No other institution in America, public or private, has to do this." Arequest from the agency for a 2-cent increase in postage rates to take effect next year was recently turned down by the independent Postal Rate Commission. The post office has appealed that decision in federal court. While the post office does not receive tax money for its operations it still must answer to Congress, which has been reluctant to agree to closing of local post offices and centers. Some have suggested privatizing the service, but the requirement to provide service everywhere in the country at the same price is not likely to be attractive to private companies. Of particular concern has been the decline in the lucrative first-class mail, largely consisting of personal letters and cards, bills and payments and similar items. First-class mail volume fell 6.6 percent in 2010, 8.6 percent in 2009, and 4.8 percent in 2008. Traditionally, this mail has produced more than half of total revenue. Volume for standard mail advertising and similar business items improved somewhat, indicating some signs of economic recovery, but generates less income. Postmaster General John Potter, who retires in December, has developed a 10-year plan for the future of the post office, but parts of that plan require congressional action.

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 Sarahs 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.ŽThough 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 Gods 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?

Associated PressWASHINGTON B reast cancer surgeon K athryn Wagner has poste d a warning in her waiti ng room about a different s ort of risk to patients' h ealth: She'll stop taking n ew Medicare cases if C ongress allows looming c uts in doctors'pay to go t hrough. The potential cuts have r aised alarms that real d amage to Medicare could r esult if the lame-duck C ongress winds up in a p artisan standoff and fails t o act by Dec. 1, when an i nitial 23 percent reduct ion would hit. "My frustration level is a t a nine or 10 right now," s aid Wagner, who pract ices in San Antonio. "I am exceptionally e xhausted with these a nnual and biannual t hreats to cut my reimb ursement by drastic a mounts. "As a business person, I c an't budget at all because I have no idea how much m oney is going to come in. "Medicine is a business. P rivate practice is a busin ess." The cuts have nothing to d o with President Barack O bama's health care overh aul. They're the unwante d consequence of a 1990s b udget-balancing law w hose requirements C ongress has routinely p ostponed. But these cuts don't go a way; they come back for a bigger bite. Doctors have muddled t hrough with temporary r eprieves for years. This t ime, medical groups estim ate that as many as twot hirds of doctors would s top taking new Medicare p atients, throwing the h ealth program for 46 mill ion older and disabled p eople into uncertainty j ust when the first baby b oomers will become elig ible. Health care for military s ervice members, families a nd retirees also would be j eopardized because T ricare payments are tied t o Medicare's. Former Medicare a dministrator Gail W ilensky, a leading R epublican policy expert, s ays lawmakers coming b ack to Washington next w eek better take note. "We simply cannot let p hysicians take a 23 perc ent reduction in payment a nd think that we are not g oing to seriously disrupt a ccess for beneficiaries," W ilensky said. It could happen. There's no consensus a mong lawmakers and the O bama administration on h ow long a reprieve to g rant or whether the cost about $1 billion per m onth should be added t o the federal deficit or o ffset with spending r eductions and revenue i ncreases elsewhere. The last reprieve, in J une, was paid for after a s truggle to come up with o ffsets acceptable to D emocrats and R epublicans. ner and grooming clinic will be offered on Friday night, followed by a free breakfast on Saturday.

By DAVID GERMAIN and HILARYFOX Associated PressLONDON The minist er of magic proclaims that d ark times have arisen in t he opening moments of the n ew "Harry Potter" film a nd the turmoil that follows l ives up to that billing. "Harry Potter and the D eathly Hallows: Part 1" c hronicles the chaos that e ngulfs the wizardry world a s evil Lord Voldemort s eizes power and sets out to d estroy Harry. The film, which prem iered Thursday night b efore its theatrical release n ext week, is an epic 2 1/2h our tease that should leave f ans salivating for "Part 2," t he final "Potter" movie, w hich does not arrive until n ext July. Fans may leave frustrated t hat they have to wait eight m onths for the finale. But t he seventh and final novel i n J.K. Rowling's fantasy s eries needed to be broken i nto two parts, said Daniel R adcliffe, who stars as the t een wizard Harry. "I was always very much i n favor of it being two p arts, and I think most peop le were, simply because w e all realized there was no w ay you could do justice to t he book and really capture t he story in one film," R adcliffe said. In the first six books, t here was secondary action t hat could be cut from the m ovies, "themes which, w hile exciting and while f ans love them, simply d on't add anything to the m ain thrust of the story," R adcliffe said. "In the seve nth book, there is very litt le extraneous stuff that's n ot actually contributing h eavily to the main plot l ine." "Part 1" sends Harry and p als Hermione (Emma W atson) and Ron (Rupert G rint) outside their usual h aunts at Hogwarts School o f Witchcraft and Wizardry. They're in perpetual danger as they hit the road to hide from Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) and his followers, the Death Eaters, while simultaneously seeking to find and destroy magical artifacts that are the key to Voldemort's dark powers. "It's kind of an edgy road movie, where these three iconic characters, who we've always seen in this magical place called Hogwarts, are thrust out into the big, bad world and have to fend for themselves and survive," said David Yates, who directed both parts of "Deathly Hallows" as well as the fifth and sixth "Harry Potter" films. "As much as we love Hogwarts, we needed a fresh environment. We needed to be out of our comfort zones, definitely," Watson said. And what's Voldemort aiming to get out of all of this? "Everyone knows, don't they? They read all the books, don't they? They all know what he's up to: world domination, total power," Fiennes said. The story tests the bonds among Harry, Hermione and Ron as jealousy, suspicion, bickering and feelings of betrayal undermine their relationship. They all take painful leave of their homes: Harry taking a last glance at the sad little closet under the stairs where he lived as a boy; Ron worrying about the safety of his large and loving family; Hermione making an agonizing act of self-sacrifice to protect her parents. Along the way, they journey into enemy territory at the Ministry of Magic, which Voldemort's followers have turned into a fascist monolith bearing the slogan "Magic Is Might." They learn of the Deathly Hallows, powerful gifts bestowed upon three brothers by Death itself. And they have a savage encounter with fanatic Voldemort flunky Bellatrix Lestrange, played with wicked glee by Helena Bonham Carter, one of the highlights of the franchise's roster of esteemed British actors. Newcomer Rhys Ifans is a standout as the spacey but tragic wizard journalist Xenophilius Lovegood, while Bill Nighy joins the cast as Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour. The returning actors include Alan Rickman, Robbie Coltrane, John Hurt, Brendan Gleeson, Imelda Staunton, Jason Isaacs, Tom Felton, Julie Walters, David Thewlis and Bonnie Wright. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" will bring to a close one of Hollywood's most remarkable film franchises, a gambit of more than a decade by Warner Bros. to bring all of Rowling's novels to the screen before the young stars outgrew their roles. The result will be a 20hour saga that lets fans watch Harry grow from a shy, neglected 11-year-old to a bold, noble young man. "I don't think it'll take too long before these films do finish and finally come out for cinemas all over the world to be having Harry Potter'marathons, where they just play them all back to back," Radcliffe said. "And I imagine attendance will be huge." www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, November 14, 2010Page 5B COUNTRY CLUB REALTY 863-382-6575www .CountryClubRealtyofSebring.comTWO LOCATIONSTOSERVE YOU GOLF HAMMOCK 1 Hammock Circle € Sebring, FL 33872 COUNTRY CLUB OF SEBRING 4800 Haw Branch Rd. € Sebring, FL 33872863-382-6575THUNDERBIRD HILLS DESOTO CITY HOUSE WITH BOAT!

LIVING C SECTION Inside This Section Arts & Leisure5,7C Crossword2C Dear Abby2C Horoscope7C Living With Children2C Pause & Consider2C Senior Scene3,4C Watershed6C News-Sun Sunday, November 14, 2010 PUMPKIN MERINGUE PIE By Kathy Kingsley There are some die-hard pumpkin pie fans in my family, but there are also quite a few who love lemon meringue. I created this recipe to please both factions, and it was a hit right from the start. It now makes an appearance at our holiday table every year. INGREDIENTS: For the pie: 9-inch deep-dish piecrust (Use your favorite or make our Foolproof Piecrust, far right) 1 (15-ounce) can solid-pack pumpkin (about 2 cups) 1 cup heavy cream 1/2 cup whole milk 2 large eggs 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon ginger 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves 1/4 teaspoon saltFor the meringue: 3 large egg whites, at room temperature 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar 1/3 cup sugar 1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Shape the piecrust edge into a highstanding rim. Line the crust with a sheet of aluminum foil, gently pressing it into place. Pour about an inch of dry rice or dried beans onto the foil to weigh it down. Place the crust on the center oven rack and bake it for 15 minutes. 2. Carefully remove the foil and rice or beans by lifting the foil at the edges. Set it aside (the rice or beans can be reused several times). With a fork, prick the bottom of the crust 5 or 6 times to prevent puffing. Lower the heat to 375 degrees and bake the crust 10 minutes more. Transfer it to a wire rack. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Note: Frozen crusts do not require foil or weights and should be baked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes total. 3. In a large bowl, whisk together all the filling ingredients until well blended. Set the piecrust on a baking sheet and pour in the filling. Bake the pie until it's puffy around the sides and set in the center, about 50 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool. Raise the oven temperature to 375 degrees. 4. While the pie cools, make the meringue. In a medium-size bowl, use an electric mixer at medium speed to beat the egg whites until frothy, about 2 minutes. Add the cream of tartar and continue to beat until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes more. Slowly blend in the sugar, then increase the mixer's speed to medium-high and beat the egg whites until they are stiff and glossy, about 2 minutes more. 5. Spoon the meringue onto the pie, then use the back of the spoon to form small peaks. Return the pie to the oven and bake it until the meringue is golden brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer the pie to a wire rack to cool completely, about 3 hours. Serves 10. MANGO PIE By Monica Bhide One of the sweetest discoveries I made several years ago as a newcomer to the United States was pie. This one, a frozen treat that's easy to assemble, unites some of my favorite childhood flavors mango, exotic saffron and bold and flowery cardamom with an all-American graham cracker crust. INGREDIENTS: 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk 11/2cups pureed or mashed canned mango (we used mango slices in syrup, drained) 1/4teaspoon saffron threads 1/4teaspoon ground cardamom (9-inch) graham cracker piecrust Whipped cream (optional) 1. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer set on medium to beat the cream cheese until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the condensed milk, mango, saffron and cardamom and continue to beat until the mixture is smooth and well blended, about 2 minutes more. 2. Pour the filling into the piecrust, then cover and freeze the dessert for at least 6 hours. Defrost it for 10 minutes before serving and top with whipped cream, if you like. Serves 10. SWEDISH APPLE PIE By Dianne Lauffer The recipe for this lesser-known version of apple pie was passed down to me from my mother. Though the pie lacks a traditional crust, its simple pastry topping creates a delicious, pleasantly crunchy layer. My family loves the raisins and nuts, but the dessert is equally tasty without them. INGREDIENTS: For the filling: 2/3 cup raisins 3 medium apples (about 2/3cups), baking variety, peeled and sliced 1 tablespoon sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon nutmegFor the topping: 3/4 cup butter or margarine 1 cup flour 1 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 egg, beaten 1/4 cup chopped walnuts Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream (optional) 1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Place raisins in a small bowl, cover them with hot water, and microwave them on high until they are plump, about 20 to 30 seconds. Drain the raisins, then combine them with the apple slices. Transfer the fruit to a 9-inch pie pan (it should be no more than two-thirds full). 2. In a small bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and sprinkle the mixture over the fruit. 3. To make the topping, first melt the butter or margarine and set it aside. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, salt and egg until they're evenly blended. Whisk in the butter or margarine, then spread the topping over the fruit and sprinkle on the nuts. 4. Bake until golden brown, about 40 minutes. Serve it warm, with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if you like. Serves 10. CHOCOLATE CHESS PIE By Ken Haedrich Make a delicious break from tradition with this chocolaty Southern staple. When you think of Thanksgiving desserts, chocolate pie probably doesn't come to mind. But each time I make this luscious Southern treat, even the most traditional holiday feasters can't resist a slice. INGREDIENTS: 9-inch deep-dish piecrust 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped 11/4cups sugar 1 tablespoon fine yellow cornmeal 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 3 large eggs, room temperature 1 large egg yolk 1/4 cup milk 11/2teaspoons vanilla extract Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream (optional) 1. Follow the prebake instructions in steps 1 and 2 of the Pumpkin Meringue Pie recipe, but lower the heat to 325 degrees after. 2. Put the butter in the top of a double boiler set over, but not in, slow-simmering water (or place a heat-safe glass or metal bowl in a similarly sized pot). Scatter the chocolate over the butter without mixing and let it stand until the chocolate and butter have melted, about 6 minutes. Whisk the chocolate mixture until it's smooth, then remove it from the heat and set it aside for 10 minutes to cool. 3. In a large bowl, use your hands to combine the sugar, cornmeal, salt and cinnamon. In another bowl, lightly beat together the eggs and yolk. Add them to the sugar mixture, along with the milk and vanilla extract, and whisk together until they're evenly blended. Then whisk in the chocolate mixture until smooth and pour the filling into the piecrust. 4. Place the pie on the center oven rack and bake it for 35 minutes. Rotate it 180 degrees, then continue to bake until it puffs up and forms a thin crusty layer, about 20 minutes more. Transfer the pie to a wire rack to cool for at least 11/2hours. Serve it slightly warm or at room temperature, with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if you like. Serves 10. FOOLPROOF PIECRUST By Ken Haedrich If I had to choose just one piecrust to use with all my recipes, this would be the one. It's flavorful, easy, and complements both sweet and savory fillings. INGREDIENTS: 11/2cups flour 1 tablespoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 6 tablespoons cold vegetable shortening, cut into pieces 2 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 1/4-inch pieces 1/4 cup cold water 1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar and salt. Add the shortening and butter and use your fingers or a pastry blender to combine the ingredients into a coarse, damp meal. 2. Slowly add the water, using a fork to blend the mixture as you pour. Continue to blend until it coheres. 3. Turn the dough out onto a large piece of plastic wrap. Pack it together, being careful not to overwork it, then flatten the dough into a disk about 3/4inch thick. Wrap it in the plastic and refrigerate it for 1 hour. 4. On a sheet of floured waxed paper, roll the dough into a 13-inch circle, then place it in a 9-inch deepdish pie pan. Crimp the edges, then place it in the freezer for 20 minutes to firm before baking. Invite friends to gather the day afterThanksgivingto share a fun afternoon and their leftover pies. We've got four irresistible recipes to get you started. PHOTOS BYLAURAJOHANSEN/DISNEYFAMILYFUN MAGAZINE he holidays are filled with food, fun and family time, but Kimberly Stoney wanted to make friends a bigger part of her family's festivities without adding a lot of extra wor k to an already busy season. So Kimberly, her husband, Sam and their 8-year-old son, Elliott, started a day-after-Thanksgiving tradition they call their Leftover Pie Party. Every year, they invite about a dozen families over for an afternoon of revelry and surplus sweets. "W e wanted to keep things simple, so each family is asked to bring a pie left over from their Thanksgiving meal. We get to spend more time enjoying friends and all their delicious desserts!" she says. The day of the party, Kimberly sets a table with a dessert from her own kitchen and home made whipped cream ("Amust!"). For easy cleanup, she puts out paper plates, but she pro vides metal forks because, she says, "Some pies are just impossible to cut through using plastic." Below, you'll find sweet inspiration for throwing your own Leftover Pie Party, including an easy recipe for pie crust; Kimberly's favorite pie from her last party (a Swedish Apple baked by one of her friends); and three other FamilyFun food writers'favorite holiday recipes, which are so delicious it may be hard to count on leftovers.

DearAbby: I have been married to "Ben," a wonderful man, for seven years. We have three children. We get along well, but I have one complaint. It's about sex. I'm always in the mood but he isn't. We both work fulltime jobs and take care of the kids and the house. My best friend tells me I have the sex drive of a male and her husband wishes she was more like me. I am not a nymphomaniac, but I'd like to be intimate with my husband more than every other week. When we're together, I almost feel like it's a chore to him. Is there something wrong with me? I have never cheated on Ben, nor have I considered it. I feel this is an issue in our marriage, but he thinks I am overreacting. Waiting for More DearWaiting: When a couple has problems in the bedroom, it can affect every aspect of the marriage. You are not "overreacting." By implying that you are, your husband is attempting to minimize your feelings. He may have a low sex drive, no sex drive or a hormone problem. Alicensed marriage counselor might be able to help the two of you discuss this sensitive subject and a visit to his doctor could help him find out if his problem is physical. You need more help and so does he than anyone can give you in a letter. DearAbby: My grandmother passed away this week. For the last five years my mother was her sole caregiver. Now that Grandma is gone, I'm worried about my mother. She sacrificed her life and friendships to take care of Grandma and GreatGrandma. Now, 10 years later, she's at a total loss. My mother is a wonderful lady. I don't want to see her hurt and isolated like this. All the relatives are still in town and a lot of us are off work, but when everyone returns to work, it's going to be hard for her. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Sad Survivor DearSad: Your mother may need some time to get over the loss of her mother and to figure out where to go from here. Don't push her, but do keep an eye on her and encourage her to start reconnecting with friends and activities she once enjoyed. Grieving is an individual process that can take time (or not), depending upon how prepared she was for your grandmother to go. And hold a good thought. Having done all she could for her mother and grandmother, she may have no regrets and recover faster than you think she will. If that doesn't happen, her doctor, minister or the funeral home can help her locate a grief support group. DearAbby: I have already decorated my office for the winter holidays, but my co-worker says before Thanksgiving is too early to display a snowman. When do you decorate for the hol iday season? Festive Southern G irl DearSouthern Girl: Th is year, in late September, I began seeing Christmas dec orations in some stores, and references to Christmas lay away plans being mentione d in the media a few months before that. However, in a work environment I would wait until after the first wee k of December to begin displaying Christmas decorations. P.S. If your snowman is a generic winter decoration, i t might be appropriate to wa it until after the first snowfall Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

It's a misb elief, actually, because probl ems that are a function of t he human condition do not a lways respond positively to h uman effort. This recently c ame to mind as I contemp lated two questions submitt ed by readers. The first came from the m other of a pre-teen boy w hom she described as "a m elancholy mess moody, u naffectionate, and negative." H e has been a minor league m isanthrope since early on in h is life, and mom does not w ant him taking this problem w ith him into the majors. On the positive side, he's g ood-looking, athletic, and a rtistic. What can I do to help get h im out of his funk? Mom a sks, to which I answer proba bly not much. After all, s he's been trying without s uccess for at least a decade. In the first place, it is not t he responsibility of parents t o solve all of their children's p roblems before said children reach adulthood and emancipate, nor is it realistic to think that can be accomplished, even with colossal parental effort. This is especially the case when the problem in question is related to a child's temperament, which the research strongly suggests is inborn (although not necessarily inherited). We all reach adulthood with problems our parents could not have solved for us. At that point, one either rises to the challenge or not. And even with complete commitment, some problems of living are not ever going to be solved. One just has to learn to live with them and do his or her best to contain them such that they don't affect others. Again, this is simply the consequence of being born human. So my advice to this mom is to accept that her son's melancholy is his problem, not hers, and to remember that while human love does not conquer all, it always benefits both the lover and the loved. Besides, this good-looking, athletic boy is about to enter his teen years, during which both of those characteristics are going to be mightily rewarded by his peers. It may well be that a couple of years of positive feedback from kids his own age will accomplish for this youngster what his mom and dad cannot hope to accomplish. The second question came from a woman whose sisterin-law is forever bragging about her talented children and putting down other parents whose kids are not so blessed (or cursed, depending on one's point of view). My petitioner wants to know how to handle her seemingly egomaniacal relative. I say "seemingly" because a mother who lives her life through her children in this manner is obviously covering up deepseated feelings of personal inadequacy. She may also be over-investing in her kids to avoid dealing with problems in her marriage. In any case, she needs to put some boundaries between herself and her children and claim a valid adult life for herself. The probability of her doing this, however, is slim. That's most unfortunate, because when her kids leave home and establish lives of their own, she is likely to be a very unhappy individual. No one is going to be able to say anything to this woman that will cause her to experience sudden self-revelation. Therefore, I advised my writer to stay away from her toxic sister-in-law as much as possible; and when she can't avoid her, to ignore her; and when she can't ignore her, to regard her as an unfortunate who deserves compassion, all the more so because she doesn't realize she's being slowly destroyed from within. Family psychologist John Rosemond answers parents' questions on his Web site at www.rosemond.com. Parents can't solve all the problems before children reach adulthood We had looked at quite a few houses t hat day. Eager to find just the right one, w e persevered with the realtor to just o ne more. Walking in the door, we were greeted b y the aroma of cinnamon and apples b aking. Afire crackling in the dining room f ireplace warmed the knotty pine interio r.Our heads swiveled as we stepped i nto the sunken living room with huge, s olid beams running across the length of t he large room. Welcoming bookshelves r an alongside a stone mantle with woods tove. While across the way, we w atched snowflakes falling while we t ook in the wooded backyard through a h uge bay window. It didn't take long for us to agree this w as to be our first house together. We p rayed our marriage and family would b e as welcoming an aroma for all who e ntered as the cinnamon and apples had b een for us. Have you ever realized that as an individual, as a couple, as a family we bring an aroma into a room with us? Think about it. If someone walks into a room without a smile, turning an abrupt shoulder toward you and having a haughty attitude, your nose twitches with irritation. But, on the other hand, when you are greeted with smiles and hugs, it's like inhaling a desirable, pleasing aroma. It sets the tone for how things will go. It's important for married couples to realize how easily the tone of the home can be charged with negative vibes or positive ones.Our attitudes, countenance and body language create that aroma. That first house sounds like the perfect, romantic hideaway. But, little did we know then, it harbored an enemy to my husband's health that tested our faith and romance. However, we learned to draw closer to God and each other. But first we had to go through the trials that illness and allergies threw our way. Sometimes unpleasant aromas swirled around us through unnecessary, unkind words spoken or body language displayed. So we sought the Lord and he reminded us of Ephesians 4: 31, NKJV, "Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you." Recently I heard this great way to think'before speaking.T= true; H = helpful; I = inspiring; N = necessary; K = kind.Is what I am about to say true, helpful, inspiring, necessary and kind? What kind of aroma does each of us bring into a room? Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent and an award-winnin g writer. What kind of aroma does each of us bring into a room?

What is the visit to the Y oung Eagles Flight E xperience doing in the seni or citizen section of the p aper? Well here's my reas on. Years ago I was stationed i n Wilminton, Del., with the n ew United States Air Force. I had remained in the R eserve Force in order to s tay current in high horse p ower airplanes and was curr ently flying C-47s all over t he country. On one of my S aturdays off I was asked a nd accepted the task of i ndoctrinating a group of the y oung folks on their first airp lane flight. I flew 10 of t hese young kids in the b ackseat of a North A merican T-6 one at a time a nd a great time was had by a ll including men. This was long before the E AAwas ever organized and w as sponsored by the Air F orce as a goodwill gesture t o the citizens of the area. W e had a very good turn out a nd flew quite a few kids in t heir first airplane ride. I wanted to see what diff erences there were between t hen and now. I was very s urprised, there was no diff erence. The kids and their p arents lined up to fill out t he required forms and then w aited for the planes flown b y EAAvolunteer pilots in F AA-licensed craft to come b ack and pick them up. I watched as the youngs ters alighted from the p lanes; there were four of t hem ranging from a little t wo-seater to a six-passenger j ob. The faces of the kids as t hey left the plane showed h ow they felt about the f light. At this moment every o ne of them was a pilot to b e. However, due to various c ircumstances of the 25 or so kids that flew this day, only one or two would actually become active pilots. Some may realize their dreams of today and become active in the aviation community as commercial pilots or enter the USAF and serve their country and get the best training that the world has to offer. Which ever way they go, they will never forget today's first trip into the wild blue yonder. Senior citizens? Well every one of the folks running the show were either senior citizens or were nearing the threshold. All the pilots were in their 40s or 50s and had piled up many hours of flight time and were very competent in their job. They and the folks supporting the program were donating their time and efforts to further the aims of the Young Eagles program. The lady doing the paper work? She worked diligently during the hours the flying went on. The lunch crew also worked like beavers to feed the hungry kids and parents. This program and many other affairs were sponsored financially by the Experimental Aircraft Association fairs and air shows all over the country. The show at Oshkosh, Wis., the biggest air show in the world, is only one of many events. Locally, we have the Sun and Fun Show in Lakeland yearly and nearby the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo at Sebring Airport in midJanuary. This show has surprised all the aviation world and has become one of the things to see if you are at all interested in light airplane flight. Manufacturers and distributors from all over the world will show their wares at the Expo. You can fly in the planes and touch them close up. There will be seminars on flying the planes and also on rules and regulations governing their control. So you see, this is a program by seniors and soon-tobe seniors carried on for the benefit of seniors to be in the far future. See you at the Expo in January (if I live that long). It would be interesting to get a list of the names of all the kids who flew on this day and in 20 years see where they have progressed in the aeronautical world. I am sure that the little girl who was asking all the questions at the last hangar section of their program would be on the list of prominent airwomen. These kids have been vaccinated with the flying bug. Now it is up to general aviation to make the shots take. Make flying available to them at a price they or their parents can afford. Very few of the parents of these kids can afford the $75 or more per hour that it will take to further the kids aerial (flying) education. There are many good schools in the country that offer fine degrees in aeronautics. They are all expensive. I am not a recruiter for the Air Force but if you can qualify for entry into one of their many programs, you will have it made. Jobs are waiting for ex-Air Force people, pilots and ground personnel who have qualified in their specialty. The future is up in the air whether you want to go to a distant planet in a spaceship or to the next town on a back pack gyro. You kids are the masters of the future. Make the best of it.

Jonathan Skipper p urchased land in Section 6, T S35S; R28 nestled beneath g igantic oaks, tall strands of c abbage palms, and towering c ypress trees in surrounding s wamp. He cleared enough o f the thick native growth to b uild a cabin, cow pens, and p lanted citrus trees. This is t oday's Highland Hammocks S tate Park. The wilderness was u nspoiled then with crawling c reatures coming out of hidi ng at night, the piercing cry o f the Florida panther echoi ng through the swamp, then a t first light a melody of c hanting birds awakened the d ay. It must have been one o f the most peaceful and b eautiful places on Earth ... a nd still is. The family's unique histor y is integral to Highlands C ounty. "I remember even m y grandfather Ches when asked where he was born, would never say anything about a town but always quoted the section, township, and range. The homestead was located near the western edge of Highlands Hammock State Park known then as Hooker's or Eland's Hammock." Over the years, many visitors have traveled to Highlands Hammock State Park to camp, hike and bike through the pristine beauty of land where John Skipper's heritage first began more than 130 years ago. "Most people don't realize that in the 1800s, the park was on the edge of the thriving community of Crewsville; you might say the Skippers and the Eilands lived in the suburbs of Crewsville. The community had a store, church and school. The children attended classes at the Parnell School operated by DeSoto County, a one room building near the rear exit of the park. "One story I remember my grandfather telling me was about his brother Dink when they were walking to school one day through the hammock. I guess Uncle Dink decided that he could pick up a skunk by the tail and throw it in a pond before it could spray him. Well, it didn't work and apparently the teacher didn't appreciate the new smell in the classroom. Dink's school ended early that day and all the clothes had to be buried." The Skippers were part of the lucrative cattle drives in the late 1800s across Central Florida to Punta Rassa on the west coast where cows boarded steamboats headed for Cuba. The cattle drives lasted weeks but the profits were worth the grueling lifestyle herding thousands of cattle on the rutted trails bringing $20 in gold or silver per head. In those days, trust was a factor with old timers preferring to be paid in Spanish gold bullion; they never trusted paper money or banks. Although silver was also exchanged, the "cow hunters" found gold to be lighter and easier to carry in sidesaddles. "As my grandfather tells it, at the end of the drive, the Skipper family gathered for Sunday dinner at Grandpa's house behind the hammock and divided up the cattle proceeds. He remembers the rage of his uncle and father accusing that damned old man Lykes for not paying them in Spanish gold.'They were extremely mad because Lykes had tried to pay them with a bank draft instead of silver or gold." The 1870s through the '80s was an economic windfall for ranchers as cattle prices averaged $14 per head. As many as 800 head were shipped from Punta Rassa and herded to points in Havana, Sague, LaGrande and Nuivestes. The Skippers were the last family to live in Highlands Hammock State Park but their legacy continues today.

From peppermint lattes and potato latkes, carols to dreidels, there are reminders at every twist and turn. Seniors should also be reminded that it's time to sign up for Medicare's prescription drug benefit, known as Part D. From now until the end of the year, seniors can enroll in Part D or switch from their existing plan to a new one. All those eligible should take advantage of this "open enrollment" period. Unlike most public health programs, the Medicare prescription drug benefit is administered by the private sector. The program is subsidized by taxpayer dollars, but seniors are allowed to select the drug benefit that best suits their needs. Providers must compete for this business, whi ch leads to more choices, be tter service, and lower pr emiums. This feature t he freedom to compariso n shop between competin g Medicare drug plans is one of the reasons the pr ogram is both popular an d cost-effective. Part D has a 92 perce nt satisfaction rate among its beneficiaries. And the pr ogram has reduced the num ber of seniors without a drug plan by 17 percen t. Meanwhile, the price of Part D over the next deca de is expected to be near ly $120 billion less than orig inally estimated. Many seniors worri ed that healthcare refor m would put the drug bene fit in danger. But now that t he dust has settled, it loo ks like Part D has emerged as an even stronger program How to get the most out of the season See GETpage 4C

Commerce Ave. Sebring, Florida863-385-3497Mon. Fri. 9am 4pm Closed Wednesdays in Summer According to the Centers f or Medicare and Medicaid S ervices (CMS) 99 percent of s eniors in Part D will have a ccess to a plan in 2011 with a premium that is the same or l ower than what they are payi ng now. In fact, CMS estim ates that the average senior w ill pay $30 per month for c overage in 2011, just $1 m ore than this year. Also, thanks to the healthc are reform bill, the gap in c overage known as the donut hole" is about to start c losing. In the past, seniors f aced a gap in coverage after s pending a certain amount on d rugs until they hit a "catas trophic" level. This was c onfusing and often an u nforeseen cost for seniors. B ut beginning in January, A merica's drug companies w ill start providing eligible s eniors who reach the donut h ole a 50 percent discount on t heir brand-name drug purchases. The donut hole will be completely closed by 2020. The open-enrollment period gives seniors a valuable opportunity to get the most out of their Medicare drug benefit. Even beneficiaries who are happy with their current Part D plan should visit www.Medicare.gov and consider their options. There are dozens of plans out there, so everyone should be able to find one that's both affordable and well-suited to their needs. Like holiday sales, this opportunity will be gone by the New Year. Seniors should make sure they get the most out of the season and their Medicare drug benefit before the end of the year. Peter J. Pitts is president of the Center for Medicine in the Public Interest and a former Federal Drug Administration associate commissioner.

For more information about getting a replacement card, go to www.socialsecurity.gov/ssnumber. Question: How much difference will it make if I defer retirement benefits until age 70? Answer: It can be significant. Let's say your full retirement age is 66 and your monthly benefit starting at that age is $1,000. If you choose to defer receiving benefits until age 70, you would increase your monthly benefit amount to $1,320. That's almost an extra $4,000 each year for the rest of your life. This increase is from delayed retirement credits you receive for your decision to postpone receiving benefits past your full retirement age. The benefit amount at age 70, in this example is 32 percent more than you would receive per month if you chose to start getting benefits at full retirement age. And, this higher benefit would continue for as long as you live. You can estimate your future benefits at different ages using our Retirement Estimator at www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator Question: I receive my Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments on the first of the month. What happens when the first of the month falls on a Saturday? Answer: If you receive an SSI pay ment on the first of the month, and th e first of the month falls on a Saturday Sunday, or legal holiday, your payment should arrive on the previous banking day.

B ut did you know that recyc ling, in some form or anothe r has been around since the d ays of Plato? Archeologists b elieve that early man reused m ost of their household w aste, mostly because there w asn't a whole lot of new m aterial available. H istorically, man has collecte d scrap metals to melt down a nd reuse. Dust and ash were c ollected from "dustmen" to m ake bricks. Rags have been g athered to make fabric. In w ar time, recycling was vital b ecause of the lack of r esources and was considered a patriotic duty. The philosop hy behind the idea of recyc ling in the past was most l ikely economic and practic al. Acquiring new or virgin m aterials was much more c ostly and difficult and there w ere little or no public waste s ervices. Today, we may recycle for d ifferent reasons. Perhaps the m ain reason is that it keeps o ur landfills from overflowi ng. In an age where it is less e xpensive to buy it new than t o get it fixed, our planet is t aking on a lot of trash. S pace is a huge issue espec ially near crowded urban a reas. Even in the rural setting, what landowner wants to live near a landfill? The "not in my back yard" concept keeps many landfills from being placed in rural settings. Studies have shown that 60-75 percent of the garbage dumped in landfills can be recycled. If the garbage that was placed in trashcans would have been recycled, the landfills wouldn't be filling up so fast. Many folks feel that by recycling, they are lessening the impact on global warming. Production of some materials, such as aluminum, produces significant amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. By recycling used aluminum cans, the amount of CO2 released is reduced by 95 percent. Also recycled paper is a way to reduce the amount of trees that are cut down. For each ton of paper recycled, about 17 trees are saved. As you know, trees produce oxygen and help to reduce the carbon footprint. Most of us want to be good stewards of the environment and our natural resources. But, especially with today's financial challenges, it's good to have something that creates jobs in the process. The concept of recycling is getting more and more popular. Recycling creates many jobs. Think about it. Someone has to collect the recyclables, sort them, process them and come up with an end product. The need for recycling continues to grow as technology changes and populations increase. America Recycles Day is held every year on Nov. 15 to raise awareness about the benefits of recycling and buying products made with recycled materials. This national day of recognition has been in effect since 1997. Communities from all over America have come together to promote recycling. Their goals are to educate folks and get them excited about recycling and what can be done when people work together. For 2010, approximately 1,500 events have already been planned for the big day. To make our lives a little simpler, Lowe's now has recycle bins at the front of their stores. They will take rechargeable batteries, cell phones, compact fluorescent lamps and plastic bags all in one convenient location. These items may be tough to get rid of and hard to store for later recycling plans. And for your regular recyclables such as plastic, paper and cardboard, there are many bins around Highlands County that are easily accessible. Why not join with thousands of others on this special day and do your part and pitch in? Recycling doesn't cost us anything and it sends a great message to our kids and grandkids. After all, sometimes it's the little things that make such a big difference.Recycling statistics82 million tons of materials are recycled in the United States. 53.4 percent of all paper products are being recycled. There is about 100 percent increase in the total recycling in the United States during the past decade. Each person produces 4.6 pounds of trash per day in the United States. In 2005, roughly 8,550 curbside recycling programs existed throughout the United States. 8,875 programs existed in 2003. United States recycles about 32 percent of its waste today. An average American produced 800 kilograms of rubbish in the year 2005, compared to only 577 kilograms per person in Western Europe.

SEBRING Music in the P ark continues at 7 p.m. S aturday with the old time m ountain music blend of M ountain Brew. Aconcoct ion of traditional mountain m usic mixed with country, f olk, rock, bluegrass, Cajun a nd even Celtic music is perf ormed by husband and wife d uet, Andy and Sara Burr. "It isn't quite what we o riginally intended," says A ndy. "We thought of our music a s a distillation of influences r ather than a brew and we h ad this cool logo of a smili ng crescent moon holding a j ug labeled with three X's. T he jug obviously holds m oonshine, also known as m ountain dew. We originally c alled ourselves Mountain D ew, until we got a letter f rom the soft drink company. S o we became Mountain B rew. Andy Burr grew up in the O zark foothills of north A rkansas in the 1960s, playi ng rural folk music as well a s Bob Dylan, the Beatles and Rolling Stones. "The place I'm from, Mountain View, is now known as the folk music capitol of the world. I didn't really appreciate what I grew up with until I left home," he muses. "Isn't that how it goes?" Burr rediscovered his musical roots when he married Sara Gillen, a mandolin player whose musical passion was old-time music. "Old-time is the popular dance music of the 19th century," he says. "They're lively tunes, kind of like square dance music, or the songs you might hear a piano player playing in the saloon of a cowboy movie. Sara knows and can play a load of those melodies, so we combined her old-time tunes with my folk and rock and came up with our peculiar brew." The Burrs also started drawing more from Sara's roots, adding Irish and Celtic standards to their repertoire. Mountain Brew is most often a duo, with Sara on mandolin, Andy on guitar and harmonica and both contributing to vocals. For their concert here at the Hammock, they will be joined by Renee Riddle, a talented fiddle player from Bowling Green. "It's always a pleasure for us to have Renee join in since she is a great performer and has accompanied us on several songs on our album," says Andy. The concert will start at 7 p.m. Saturday outdoors in the park's picnic area. Bring lawn chairs or blankets and a flash light. Picnic baskets or coolers are welcome and the Hammock Inn will be open serving refreshments. Concert admission is just $5 per person and accompanied kids age 12 and under are admitted free of charge. All concert proceeds benefit park improvement projects via the Friends of Highlands Hammock. Park entrance fee of $6 per vehicle (up to eight per car) are waived after 6 p.m. on concert nights.

Highlands Art League prepares for annual Wine Tasting Event Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Tanglewood Actors Guild will perform two very funny one-act plays in the Tanglewood Clubhouse on Dec. 8, 9 and 10. The plays, "Laundry & Bourbon" and "Lone Star", written by James McLure, are both set in Texas. In addition to the plays, the guild will serve a delicious, home cooked, Texas style meal at 6 p.m. each evening. "Laundry & Bourbon" is set on the front porch of Roy and Elizabeth's home in Maynard, Texas. Elizabeth and her friend, Hattie, are whiling away the time folding laundry, sipping bourbon and Coke and gossiping about the many secrets which are so much a part of small-town life. They are joined by Amy-Lee who can't resist blurting out that Roy has been seen around town with another woman. While the conversation is increasingly edged with bitter humour, from it emerges a sense of Elizabeth's inner strength and her quiet understanding of the turmoil which has beset her husband since his return from Vietnam. He is wild and he is unfaithful, but he needs her and she loves him. And she'll be waiting for him when he comes home, despite what the ot hers think. "Lone Star" takes pla ce in the cluttered back yard of a small town Texas ba r. Roy, a brawny macho ty pe who had once been a loc al high school hero, is back in town after a hitch in Vietnam and is trying to r eestablish his place in t he community. Joined by h is younger brother Ray (wh o worships him), Roy se ts about consuming a case of beer while regaling Ro y with tales of his milita ry and amorous exploit s. Apparently, Roy cherish es three things above all: h is country, his sexy wife an d his 1959 pink Thunderbir d. With the arrival of Clet is, the newlywed son of t he local hardware store owne r, Roy's world begins to co llapse as it gradually com es out that Ray had slept wi th his brother's wife durin g his absence and has ju st demolished his cherish ed Thunderbird.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLooking to close out their season on a winning note, Lake Placid was on the road in Englewood Friday and made an inspired late run. But the Dragons were victimized by a big second quarter and a monster rushing night in the 29-21 loss to Lemon Bay. Senior running back Andrew Schulte found enough holes in the Dragon D to the tune of a 321yard rushing night, the Manta Rays put up 17 points in the second quarter and held off a furious Lake Placid (3-8) rally in the second half for the win. The Rays (3-7) got on the board first, scoring the opening touchdown but not converting the extra point for a 6-0 lead. ADragon fumble on their first series gave the ball back to Lemon Bay in prime scoring position. The defense held this time, however, forcing the Rays to settle for a field goal and a 9-0 advantage. Along drive, culminating in an A.J. Gayle touchdown run cut the margin to 9-7, but Schulte broke off a long run for a score to make it 17-7 with the two-point conversion. The fleet-footed Schulte would pull the feat off again before halftime, making it a 237 lead at the break. But a bound and determined Dragon squad came out of the half and began to mount their comeback. Lake Placid systematically marched the ball the length of the field and Gayle bulled in again for the score, though the extra point failed, to make it 23-13. Schulte provided one more thorn in the Dragons' side, however. Pinned deep in their own territory, Schulte took the pitch on a sweep, made a couple of evasive moves and was off to the races on a 96-yard run and a 29-1 3 lead. Not about to back dow n and fold up the tents, La ke Placid again started a march, though time w as starting to run short. Quarterback Kirk Vel ey then sent a screen pass o ut to Gayle in the flat at t he Rays 40 and the powerf ul freshman didn't stop un til he was in the end zone. The Dragons made goo d on the two-point conve rsion, but with less than o ne minute to play the ensuin g onside kick was recover ed by Lemon Bay and a coup le of kneel-downs finished it off. Perhaps a disappointin g finish to end what was a tough season for head coa ch Jason Holden and h is Dragons. But it did show t he resolve of a team th at worked hard all year lon g, never threw in the tow el and continued fighting rig ht up until the end. By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK With nothi ng on the line but bragging r ights for either team, S ebring was able to overpowe r Avon Park 34-0 at Joe F ranza Stadium Friday night t o close out the regular seas on. "This is not what I expecte d," said Red Devil head c oach Andy Bonjokian after t he defeat. "Sebring came to p lay ball, and we just could n ot get things done. Hats off t o them, they got it done and w e didn't." The Blue Streaks controlled the offensive game from the onset when quarterback Matt Grubb connected w ith Devin Clarke within the f irst four minutes from 24 y ards out for their first touchd own. Sebring's Donovan White w ould cap the first quarter j ust five minutes later with a 2 1-yard field goal. White would strike again i n the first two minutes of the s econd, this time from 35 y ards out. Grubb would hit Clarke l ate in the half from the 20, a nd a Grubb to Jacob Bryan c onversion for 2-points w ould cap the half at 20-0 S ebring. Sebring picked-off Avon P ark's Ryan Dick to set up a nother Grubb pass, this time t o tight end Zack Bullock f rom 29-yards, and White's k ick for the point after was g ood. Grubb would connect to C larke again with 6:40 left in t he fourth from six-yards out, a nd White's PATwas good f or the game-winning, 34-0 s core. "Our offense got the job d one," said Sebring's head c oach Jared Hamlin. "We m issed a lot of opportunities, e specially in the third quart er, but I am proud of the way w e kept fighting. We put e nough points on the board to w in the game, even though we had some sloppiness. This is an exciting win." "I think our whole defense stood out tonight," he continued. "We shut down their big guy and controlled the middle, showing we could stop the run. This is a big rivalry and you are never sure what is going to happen in these games. As a group, we did what we needed to do to win." And so the 2010 regular season comes to an end, with both Sebring and Avon Park coming up one game short of making the playoffs. While the Red Devils pack their gear away for the year and reflect on a gritty, neversay-die season, Sebring will don the pads one more time. The Blue Streaks will travel to Poinciana Thursday for a postseason "Bowl Game" against Atlantic High School at 7 p.m. to close out the year. By KATE ROWLAND Special to the News-SunSEBRING Nina Mercure may not have fired the shot heard round the world, but she did fire the shot that scored the first goal of the year for the Blue Streaks girls varsity soccer team. Mercure's penalty-shot goal with less than a minute to go in Thursday's 4-1 loss to Osceola kept the Blue Streaks from opening their season with two consecutive shut-out losses. The perfectly placed corner shot was also the Sebring senior's first-ever goal of her high school soccer career. The first two games of Sebring's season were canceled due to bad weather before Winter Haven defeated the Blue Streaks 8-0 on Tuesday. Coming into the game with Osceola, first-year varsity coach Paul Brown didn't know much about the Kowboys. "We had no idea," he said. "All we knew is that No. 6 was fast and that she was good. "It seemed like we were down four goals in the first 15 minutes. Then we woke up." Osceola (3-1-0) was more talented than Brown suspected, he said. No. 6, junior Leah Mullins, scored two goals, and junior Kierstin Martinez added two of her own putting Sebring in a 40 hole by the 30-minute mark. "We were surprised, but the pace on that girl was unbelievable," Brown said. "There's a speed limit on our field slow. "She was the mainstay of their team and she ripped us apart in the early going, but SPORTS D SECTION Inside This Section Tubbs season ends . . .3D Girls Basketball . . .3D State Football Scores . . .4D Love posts 30-30 . . .4D News-Sun Sunday, November 14, 2010 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Coached by Jennifer McClelland and Erin Leone, the Flag Blue Streak cheerleaderrs came in second place at the MFFCC 2010 Cheer-Off competition last weekend in Lakeland.

And though she had an impressive, top-third finish, it wasn't quite enough to get her to state. "The Estero Community Park course was very challenging," Blue Streak head coach Krista Fredrikson said. "Some hills, lots of sharp turns and even some loose sand. It started faster than expected but Taylor pushed hard. I think this was the hardest I saw her work in a race all season." The sophomore made strides through the pack and came in with a strong finishing time of 21:28, amid a grouping all within a few seconds of one another, for 21st place in the 87-runner field. "Taylor has such a great season and it was hard to see it come to an end," Fredrikson said. "But it was a great learning experience and I'm already looking forward to next season and hoping to qualify even mo re runners." By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIn closing out their respect ive preseason tournaments, A von Park rolled to its'seco nd straight win while S ebring put up a good fight in a loss Thursday night. The Lady Red Devils, after s truggling to score early, e nded the first quarter with a m ere 5-3 lead over the Lady B loodhounds of Auburndale. But Avon Park pulled away a fter that, using it's stifling, q uick-handed defense for s coring opportunities in the 5 0-29 win. Favianette Cotte paced the L ady Devils with 14 points w hile Johntavia Perry added 1 0. Facing an athletic and e xperienced Bartow squad, S ebring was somewhat e xpecting a long night for its' r elatively inexperienced s quad something head c oach Mike Lee was somew hat looking forward to. "I hope they press us," Lee h ad said after Tuesday's win o ver Lake Region. "We need t o get that sort of game exper ience." They got the experience, f or sure, as the Lady Yellow J ackets took off early and t hreatened to run away with i t. But though they never q uite challenged Bartow, the L ady Streaks hung in there a nd had the deficit in single d igits by the end in the 42-33 loss. Shannon Williams lead the way offensively with 14 points and Allie Mann chipped in nine. With a couple of preseason games now under their belts, Avon Park and Sebring will kick off the regular season with a cross-county contest Monday with the Streaks visiting the Red Devils at 7:30 p.m. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, November 14, 2010Page 3D 6 MONTH MEMBERSHIPS NOW AVAILABLE (863) 382-0500 € 3201 Golfview Rd. € Sebring(863) 382-0744for 9 Hole Executive RatesPrices good thru 11/30/10 Incl.

That slowed her down a bit." After playing most of the first half in its own end, Sebring put together an offense and went after the Osceola goal. "We hung in there and got better in the second half," Brown said. "I think it was a pretty even game in the second. "The first half was a little bit up in the air, but we woke up at halftime." With less than a minute remaining in the game, officials called a foul on Osceola for deliberately handling the ball in the penalty box. Sebring was awarded a penalty kick. Coach Brown had his pick of players to take the shot, but he didn't take long to make his decision. "As soon as the call was made, I said It's Nina-time'," Brown said. "I had every confidence in her. She did good." The Blue Streaks and Kowboys lined up in a tight row behind the penalty line. The ball was placed on the penalty mark, 12 yards in front of the center of the goal. Mercure faced down Osceola's keeper, a formidable opponent even though PK rules state that the goalkeeper cannot stray from the goal line until the ball has been kicked. "When I took the shot, I was thinking about my dad," Mercure said. "He's always telling me, You've got this! You've got this!'It never happens, but he still has faith in me. So that's who I was thinking of tonight." Mercure took the shot, a beautiful hook to the outsi de corner, but the Kowboy goa lkeeper dove to her left, gettin g her fingers on the ball. "I thought, how did she g et a hand on that shot?" Mercu re said. "How tall was that girl ?" But the ball tipped off t he goalkeeper's fingers an d streaked into the far side of the net as Mercure's team mates erupted in cheers. "I called the score at ha lftime," Mercure said. "I to ld coach it was going to be 4 to 1. "I'm proud of my team ," she added. "We shou ld improve from now." The Blue Streaks (0-20) traveled to Kissimmee Frid ay to battle the Poinciana Eagle s.

"I'm going for 30 tonight," Love said. With Love having only seven points at the time, Beasley looked at him and said, "Thirty what?" Incredibly, Love was talking about rebounds. But he didn't stop there. Love grabbed a franchiserecord 31 rebounds and scored 31 points, the NBA's first 3030 game in 28 years, and the Minnesota Timberwolves rallied from a 21-point thirdquarter deficit to stun the New York Knicks 112-103 on Friday night. "I just got a good mindset that every single one was mine," said Love, who had 23 points and 24 rebounds in a loss to the Lakers on Tuesday. Love grabbed 15 boards in the third quarter alone to will the Timberwolves to victory. Moses Malone was the last player to do it with 38 points and 32 rebounds for Houston against Seattle in 1982. "It seemed like no matter what anybody did I was going to go and get those rebounds. I don't know what to tell you," Love said sheepishly. "I impressed myself. I don't even know what to say to be honest with you." Beasley had 35 points and six rebounds for the Wolves, who were carried to their second victory in a row by the two players who are being advertised as the building blocks of the latest rebuilding project. "Thirty years from now I can say I was on the floor while history was being made," Beasley said. "It's great. And we got the win. Just an amazing thing to watch and be a part of." Danilo Gallinari scored 25 points, but only seven in the second half for the Knicks, who lost their fourth consecutive game and had no answer for Love's dominance in the second half. The Wolves trailed by 21 points early in third quarter when Love took over. He scored 11 points and grabbed 15 of Minnesota's 23 rebounds in the period. "Kevin had an incredible game," coach Kurt Rambis said. "Those numbers are just stupid. I don't even know what to say." With Amare Stoudemire in foul trouble all game long and Ronny Turiaf out with a sprained left knee, the Knicks were simply overpowered. After shooting 47 percent from 3-point range in the first half, the Knicks were just 3 of 10 from behind the arc and shot 30 percent from the field in the third quarter to let the Wolves back in it. Stoudemire picked up his fourth foul early in the period and attempted just one shot and Love took over underneath in a stunning performance. Minnesota opened the fourth quarter with a 10-0 run, with Corey Brewer's 3-pointer giving them a 90-87 lead, completing a 33-9 span bridging the third and fourth periods. Love capped his historic night with a 3-pointer from the top of the key to put him over the 30-point mark and received a standing ovation when he was pulled in the final two minutes. "It's amazing," Beasley said. "Every rebound came off the guy. Twenty and 20 is one thing. But 30 and 30?" The Knicks shot 28 percent in the second half, giving Love ample opportunities to gobble up the misses, and he devoured them like no play er has since Charles Barkl ey grabbed 33 rebounds in 199 6. "I don't know what ha ppened, honestly," said Wilso n Chandler, who had 17 poin ts, seven assists and six board s. "Just everything just turn ed around." At halftime, Love had ju st six points on 2-for-8 shootin g, a rather lifeless effort that w as overshadowed by Beasley 's brilliance. Beasley scored 42 poin ts against Sacramento o n Wednesday night to carry t he Timberwolves to their fir st road victory in 18 games. He had it going right fro m the start on Friday night, sco ring 10 points in the first qua rter to get on a roll. He threw down a soarin g dunk on the fast break ov er Stoudemire in the secon d quarter to bring the crowd to its feet, but the Wolve s' perimeter defense couldn 't keep up with Raymond Felto n and the quick-shootin g Knicks. With injuries to Jonn y Flynn and Luke Ridnour, t he Timberwolves start ed Sebastian Telfair at poi nt guard and backed him up wi th Sundiata Gaines, a player th ey signed less than 12 hours ea rlier. Felton was 5 of 6, includin g three 3-pointers, and had fi ve assists in the first half, and h is backup Toney Douglas scor ed nine points in 12 minute s, feasting on Minnesota's ove rmatched point men. But Felton was just 1 for 7 the rest of the way and fi nished with 22 points and eig ht assists. "It's definitely tough ," Stoudemire said. "But this ju st goes on my shoulders. I ta ke this loss on me. Once I got in foul trouble, they took adva ntage of that." Love has 30-30 game in Wolves' win

Kyle Albritton exercises with Naiche. Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Highlands County Sheriffs Office recently lost one of its most successful crime fighters, one who would go to great lengths through heat, sandspurs, palmettos and anything else to bring suspects into custody with never a complaint. Naiche, (pronounced neechee) one of the HCSO bloodhounds, died on Nov. 5. Naiche served the HCSO for 10 years and was the oldest K-9 deputy before he retired from full duty in September. He was diagnosed by two separate veterinarians with a nasal tumor. Naiche put up a good fight but his condition worsened by the day, his long-time handler, Sgt. Kyle Albritton, said. Naiche lived with Albritto n while the two were a team and th en during his short retirement. Albritton, who called Naiche h is best friend, had a hard time com ing up with words to describe h is former partner. Statistically, Naiche was secon d to none, Albritton said. He pr oduced more physical apprehensio ns than any other K-9 in the history of the Highlands County Sheriff s Office. HCSO K-9 unit loses most successful dog Naiche was responsible for 216 arrests, found 44 missing people Say Ahhhhh News-Sun photo by SAMANTHAGHOLAR Dental hygienist, Denise Mullins (seated) prepares to place sealant onto 4 of Milinda Vegas teeth.

On Friday, 24 students visited the Lake Placid Health Department site to get dental work done. Lake Country Elementary Health Tech Maria Gonzalez and Liz Ross, who serves as an aid to Gonzalez and buses the students to and from the health department, sat in the lobby with the nervous and anxious kids as they all prepared to get their work done.

Courtesy pho to Little Harper Holton is intrigued by the necklace on her great-great-aunt Helga Rowlands neck while great-grandma Ursula Conway prepares to taste some dishes at Thursday nights Chefs Auction. News-Sun staffSEBRING It was a night of good food and wonderful stories shared as the March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction took place Thursday night at the Four Points Sheraton Sebring, Chateau Elan. Stealing the show was not necessarily the food, as one would think at such an event, but it was actually an 8-month-old baby, Harper Lynn Holton. Many readers may remember the tragic story of her big sister. On Nov. 18, 2008 Chloe Lynn Holton was born prematurely to Lawrence and Sarah Holton. She weighed just 3 pounds, 14 ounces at birth. After 14 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit her lungs were strong and she was eating well, so at 4 pounds less weight than a gallon of ice cream she went home. On Jan. 14, 2009 Sarah announced to Lunch Club Wednesday, a local ladies networking group, that she and Chloe would be collecting items for families with babies in the NICU. Sarah had first-hand experience with the struggle and wanted to make care packages with basic necessities for other families spending days at a time visiting their babies in the hospital. However, later that evening at home, little Chloe Lynn died. Then, at last years Chefs Auction, Sarah and Lawrence, both March of Dimes volunteers for the past six years, were able to announce that they were expecting their second child. Ironically, the tale of two sisters does not end there as many learned March of Dimes benefits from Chefs Auction See HCSO, page 7A See STUDENTS, page 5A See CHEFS, page 7A Related editorial, page 3A By TRAVIS GRIGGS Pensacola News JournalPENSACOLA Environmental co ncerns led the Florida Legislature la st spring to require mandatory septic syste m inspections. But a public backlash, driven by t he potential costs it carries, has legislato rs promising to reverse the new law as soo n as possible. The sometimes fiery public protest h as focused mainly on the potential costs to homeowners inspections could cost $500, and if major problems are uncovered, residents could face thousands in repair bills. Its absolutely unnecessary. Only a very few septic tanks have a problem, but they want to punish all of us, said Sandy Wyatt, 58, a custom home builder from Chumuckla. People cant afford this mess right now. Who s going to take out the fence and dig u p grandmas camellia trees? ... Whos goin g to pay for this stuff? Me. Faced with an onslaught of angry ca lls and letters, Panhandle politicians are ra llying to repeal the law before it goes in to effect Jan. 1. Weve already drawn up the bill. I ts teed up and ready to go as soon as t he first bills are filed, said state Sen. Do n Gaetz, R-Niceville, whose distri ct includes portions of Escambia and San ta Septic tank law worth the price?

Associated PressWASHINGTON Where to live? Whom to hire? Whats a voting card and where are the bathrooms? More than 100 members of Congress arrive in Washington this coming week for the first time since winning election, trading the loftiness of campaign speeches for mundane lessons in how to do their new jobs. Its freshman orientation on Capitol Hill, and the larger-than-usual class of 2010 is getting a crash course on how to navigate the next two years. Talk of changing the nations direction? Thats on the back burner for now. The newly elected House members 85 Republicans, a meager nine Democrats need actual directions around their new workplace. The Senate is having its own orientation at the same time. Instead of American exceptionalism, his election night theme, Rep.-elect Tim Scott, R-S.C., is focused on Washingtons exceptional rental prices. Nothing here is affordable, is what Ive learned, says Scott, who might share an apartment with classmates. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, RIll., told supporters in his victory speech that he would stand strong in the epic battle that we have in front of us to take back our country. But come Monday, Kinzinger will be looking for a onebedroom apartment, setting up an interview with a prospective chief of staff and figuring out whether he wants to deal with a commute or live within walking distance of the Capitol. Even before the freshmen learn lawmaking, theyll be figuring out how to live with a new set of rules, customs and rituals. Here to help: an array of congressional committees and veterans, and a constellation of foundations and lobbyists. The second-ranking Republican, Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia, had a 144-page book in the mail to new members within hours of Election Day. Hit The Ground Running explains the nuts and bolts of setting up a congressional office, hiring staff, managing the office budget and being an employer. It also offers some general rules of the road. Do: Get answers for any ethical questions you may have if you are in doubt, according to the manual, an updated version of one originally sent out by former House Republican leader Dick Armey, R-Texas. Dont: Completely disappear from the public between Election Day and the new Congress. Even though you wont take office until January, many of your constituents will view you as their member of Congress. Lodgings? Taken care of at least for this week. The House Administration Committee, charged with the Houses day-to-day operations, is putting the group up at the LEnfant Plaza Hotel and shuttling the members to and from the Capitol. Food? Virtually everywhere the incoming lawmakers go during their Sundayto-Friday stay. Receptions, working lunches and welcome dinners dot the schedule. In between, members-tobe attend seminars on everything from setting up an office to hiring, and how the electronic voting system works on the House floor. Aschedule obtained by The Associated Press shows a wow-worthy social schedule. The freshmen will hear from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Sunday and dine with the man in line to replace her, Ohio Republican John Boehner. Pelosi hosts an open house Monday in what, for now, is her Capitol suite. Dinner follows next door in magnificent Statuary Hall, according to the schedule. There also are special events for their aides and spouses. The Congressional Management Foundation, a nonprofit group funded by dozens of corporations and industry groups with business before Congress, is hosting a reception Monday and, two days later, a seminar, Navigating the First 90 Days. Everyone has told me expect more information than you can possibly digest, but just take good notes, said Rep.-elect Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, one of the few Democrats who will be attending.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Members of the c ity council will be asked to i ncrease water and sewer deposits at t heir regular meeting Tuesday n ight. Since 1997, water and sewer d eposits have been $65 for each s ervice across the board that is, t he same amount for connections i nside city limits or outside city l imits, whether or not the consumer i s a property owner or tenant. Unfortunately, said Bob Boggus, the citys administrative coordinator, an in-depth study of the citys water and sewer bad debt losses has shown those losses averaged $29,000 a year over the last four years. The city has determined 92 percent of its utility bad debt losses are incurred by renters of property, 5 percent by property owners, and 3 percent by businesses. At present, the citys deposit requirements are often insufficient to cover the amount owed at the time of disconnect, Boggus has warned the council. Part of that problem is a result of timing. With the normal billing cycle, a consumer may be two months delinquent before being disconnected for lack of payment which is why city staff recommends the council raise the deposits to $70 for property owners in and out of the city and to $100 for tenants or renters in and out of the city. This means a property owner would deposit $140 for water and sewer, but a tenant using both services would deposit $200. The proposed deposit increases will provide the city greater security against revenue losses due to non-payment, and addresses the losses that are occurring from rental properties, Boggus wrote the cou ncil. He estimates the increas ed deposits would save the city at t he least $14,000 a year, and emph asizes the city has not raised t he deposit requirement in 13 years. By contrast, Avon Park requires a $100 deposit that covers both wat er and sewer from property owne rs and $250 deposit from renters; La ke Placid requires $100 deposit f or each service whether or not the co nsumer owns or rents.

Update Associated PressTHE VILLAGES Former President George W. Bush doesnt miss much about the White House except the pampering. In a rally Saturday at The Villages, a sprawling central Florida retirement community, Bush reminisced about the luxuries of Americas highest office, including the convenience of Air Force One and never waiting in traffic jams. He recalled, in the days after leaving office, being told by his wife Laura that doing dishes was his new domestic policy agenda. And he described how odd it felt taking his dog Barney for a post-presidential walk, plastic bag in hand. I really dont miss much about the presidency, Bush told a crowd of more than 3,000 people. I miss being pampered. The 43rd president said, most of all, he missed being commander in chief of the U.S. military. Imagine what it was li ke to return the salute of m en and women, he said in h is 30-minute speech. Bush also described h is love-at-first-sigh t moment when he first m et Laura, and he spoke at length about the 9/ 11 attacks. I still hear the voices of the loved ones searching f or survivors, he said. The Villages is heavi ly Republican and many in t he crowd waved Americ an flags or wore hats notin g their military service. Som e who gathered to hear Bu sh speak said he has be en unfairly blamed for t he countrys problems. I think all presidents g et a bum rap, said Lin da Zwick, 60. I think he ma de decisions to keep our cou ntry safe. Bush is on a national to ur promoting his new memo ir, Decision Points.

My writing a column like this depends on having freedom of speech. I have also mentioned that this freedom comes at a cost. That cost is that other people get the same right, and saying you support free speech means you are willing to run the risk of being offended. Well, I just stumbled across an expression of free speech that has me totally offended. And it has me wondering if theres some speech that needs to be slapped down, First Amendment or no First Amendment. What am I talking about? I am referring to an e-book currently being sold on Amazon.com. An e-book is an electronic book one that can be read on a device such as a Kindle. Its not that hard to publish an e-book. I myself have a short story for sale on Amazon.com, and plan to have more available soon. That helps explain how this book saw the light of day, because I cant imagine a publisher touching it with a sterilized stick. The book is titled I am not kidding The Pedophiles Guide to Love and Pleasure. Aperson named Phillips Greaves II is listed as the author. The product description states, This is my attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certian (sic) rules for these adults to follow. I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter (sic) sentences should they ever be caught. I havent bought the book, but looking at the product description and realizing the author couldnt even manage a simple spell check tells me its probably not high quality work. Amazons selling the book has a lot of people up in arms. There are more than 1,000 comments, overwhelmingly negative. Many call for Amazon to pull the book from the site. But Amazon isnt backing down. They issued the following statement: Amazon believes it is cen sorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their me ssage is objectionable. Amazon does not support or promote hatred or crim inal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions . It all sounds nice, neat, and going along with the First Amendment. We hav e to allow this because we are a nation that supports free speech for everyone, even those who say objectionable things. But Im having a problem with that argument in this case. Pedophilia is a criminal act. It is illegal. Abook th at tells you how to commit that act is telling you how to break the law. We need something like this? Really? Why? And now that I think about it, maybe the problem isnt Greavesor Amazons First Amendme nt rights. Maybe the problem is, what is right? Teaching people how to harm children is wrong. Allowing such a book to see the light of day may b e a right in our nation, but i t isnt the right thing to do. I still believe in the Firs t Amendment. Im still against censorship. I still believe free speech means Im going to be offended now and then and that to enjoy the right myself I have to pay that price. But I also believe that Amazon is wrong to sell this book. And I hope they bow to public opinion and pull it. Does that make me inconsistent? Editors note: After thi s column was submitted, Amazon is reported to hav e pulled Greavesbook. It is no longer available throug h Amazons Web site. Laura Ware is a Sebring re sident. She can be contacted by e-mail at bookwormlady @ embarqmail.com Some things dont need guides Lauras Look Laura Ware W hen the government gets i nvolved in granting p ermission to go to t he bathroom, they m ay have gone too f ar. For example, new legislat ion (SB550) kicks in on Jan 1 and restricts and requires i nspections and fines if a h omeowner uses a septic tank. On the one side is Floridas g overnment Division of E nvironment and Health, w hich is concerned about brok en tanks. They slipped in a b ill this year that requires regu lar pumping, immediate and f ive-year inspections of septic t anks. In some cases, those t anks will have to be excavate d and visually inspected. On the other side of the d ebate are those who feel that i f it aint broke, dont go digg ing it up. And no one appreciates the e xtra, um, paperwork. The laws intent is to lower t he amount of nitrogen and p hosphorous levels in Florida w ater, but no scientific data h as been presented to show w here septic tanks are the culp rit of that detrimental effect. N owhere in the debate before t he bill was passed was any a ctual scientific study to supp ort regulation and inspection o f the septic tanks already in t he ground and not making a v isible, and potentially s melly, problem. So why incur the extra e xpense of the regulation in h ard economic times for something that is not really a proven problem? In fact, the effects of other sources of potential pollutants, like fertilizer and industrial sources, have already been proven scientifically to be the largest contributors to those pollutants in the water sources. County and city governments across the state, along with hundreds of citizens, argue that implementation of the new bill would cause an undue burden on a majority of Florida homeowners, and the News-Sun agrees. Sensing the growing tide of residential backlash, Sen. Don Gaetz (R-Niceville) and Rep. Marti Coley (R-Marianna) have made noises that they are going to introduce legislation to repeal the forced septic inspections. When the government begins to regulate when you can go to the bathroom, it is too much government intervention for sure. The state government should push back the date to implement this fiasco and really study the situation from a scientific view. Homeowners and state agencies now have to either pursue or wait out the next round of legislation, or potentially spend tens of thousands solving a problem that is not a problem just to have the legislation reversed. It is unclear if the legislation is actually needed, and unclear if it should ever be initiated, but at this point, all we can say is that its a hot mess for sure. Septic debate a hot mess New commissioners need to remember how they got there E ditor: I am very sad that one of the p eople I voted for came up with t he Highlands County Sheriffs b uilding, and how what a waste it i s! even before he took oath or s worn in. My vote is very serious t o me and very valuable to me. I a m sure sorry I wasted it on him. Does he not have a clue that a long with the sheriffs building c omes infrastructure that this count y so much needs? Is he going to b e of the good ole boy kind? T hat we do not need or want. What is next for him to have? To h ave stink holes and sink holes f rom the money grabbers? I am t alking about using up precious w ater and habitat on the new towns w e have no need for, South Lake P lacid, North Lake Placid, Lake P lacid Groves and the Blue Head R anch. People of Highlands County we h ave too many good homes sitting e mpty to allow this building to s tart here. We dont need more h ousing for contractors to house i llegals in if in fact that is their a im. Is it? Keep our county beautiful and c lean water and not just a cesspool o f unwanted houses. Just because w e voted for you does not give you a n open forum to do as you please. Jeff Carlson should step down; he made the choice to break the law. We should not reward him for his breaking the law. As tax-paying citizens of this county we should demand he step down. And not let him draw from this county any longer. C.F. Neeley Lake PlacidPromises made, promises kept?Editor: I can only conclude that the voters were confused and afraid. What with tens of millions of dollars of political ads demonizing President Obama as the cause of the bad economy, voters traditionally blamed the current administration for this disaster. Corporate America got $3 trillion free bailout funds to save them, but did not use any of it to provide regional banks money to lend to small businesses. Instead they invested it for even more profit. Question: Will the Republicans provide promised jobs before the Nov. 2012 election? President Obama might get credit. It took nine years to develop this catastrophe and even though President Obama and the Congress turned it around in one and a half years, they were faulted because they could not resolve the crisis. Those responsible for this crisis were not held accountable; in fact, they were rewarded for a second chance, as noted by Senator Rubio. Now that is ironic. Marco Rubio, Charlie Crist and Jeb Bush were at the helm when Florida was nearly bankrupted. State unemployment levels were 11-12 percent; the state trust funds were raided for billions of dollars. Privatization was a cruel hoax, costing the taxpayers more money. Yet, they are still in power. Governor Scott promises jobs; the first thing he will do is cut government jobs; the second is to cut taxes. Quite a formula. I fear for the working class and retirees who put in 30-40 years building a retirement, only to see it disappear. They were the ones left with the bill. Gabriel Read Avon ParkRailroad work hurt clubs workEditor: The Highlands Shrine Club located at 2604 State Rd. 17, Avon Park would like to express our appreciation to all of our Highlands County friends and neighbors for your support of the Shrine Childrens Hospitals and our club throughout the years. We recently experienced a real set back with the closing of State Road 17 at the railroad crossing for repairs. The repairs were needed but the road closing made it almost impossible to get to our facilities, which hurt all of our activities supported by the community. With the road now open and Christmas just around the corner, we look forward to seeing all of our neighbors and friends returning to enjoy the every Saturday morning $4 breakfast, shopping at the flea market and our two stores. In addition to the Saturday activities, we are hosting a Spaghetti Dinner on Wednesday, Nov. 17 from 4-7 p.m. for only $7 and the public is invited. Thanks again for your patients and support during this difficult period and we look forward to seeing you soon. Jerry Higginbotham President Highlands Shrine ClubAdoptive and foster children, teens need homesEditor: As the holidays approach, we eagerly look forward to celebrating and gathering as a family. As we give thanks for our blessings this Thanksgiving, let us remember the thousands of children in foster care who dream of celebrating this cherished holiday with a family of their own. November is deemed National Adoption Month. In the United States, there are 114,500 children in foster care who need permanent, loving families. In Florida alone, there are more than 2,000 children; and locally there are over 75 children and teenagers waiting for an adoptive family. National Adoption Month is a collective national effort to raise awareness of the 114,500 children in foster care waiting to find permanent, loving families. During November, states, communities, public and private organizations, businesses, families, and individu als celebrate adoption. Across the nation, activities and observances such as recognition dinners, public awareness and recruitment campaigns, and speci al events spotlight the needs of children who need permanent familie s. It also includes National Adoption Day which is observed in courthouses across the nation as thousands of adoptions are finalized simultaneously. As the chief executive officer f or Heartland for Children, I call upo n our community to consider adopting and fostering local children. There are over 75 local children and teenagers right now who are available for adoption. In additio n, there is a vital need for caring ind ividuals/families to foster local children whose own families are i n crisis and unable to provide for their essential well being. If you have a desire to adopt o r foster a child, contact Heartland f or Children at (863) 519-8900, ext. 289 or visit www.heartlandforchil dren.org. On behalf of the childre n we serve, I appreciate the opportu nity to call attention to the need f or community support for local adop tive and foster children and teenagers.

Septic tank law stirs up stink R osa counties. John Broxson, elected recentl y as a state representative from Santa Rosa, l isted repeal as one of his first goals. But with all eyes focused on the price tag, t here has been little discussion about the w ater pollution issues the law was designed t o address. State Sen. Lee Constantine, R-Altamonte S prings, the legislator who championed the c ontroversial law, said the most obvious point has been lost in the flurry of controversy. People should fix their septic tanks when theyre broken, said Constantine, who left office because of term limits. This is something that harms all of us. Its important, and theyre not getting it. This is important to our future. This is polluting our rivers and our streams and our springs. Speaking on the phone from his office in central Florida, Constantine said the shortterm costs shouldnt blind Florida residents to the long-term consequences.

After the baby teeth fall o ut and the adults replace t hem, sometimes they are m ore susceptible to cavities a nd the tooth sealant is p laced on. Its good to get it d one at about this age, said D r. Barb Platte. Platte, along with Drs. S tephen and Diane Hulen, d ental hygienist Denise M ullins, and dental assistants L ynnetta Mann and Jaclyn M cGovern spent approxim ately 15-20 minutes with e ach student they saw. Some of the students had m ultiple teeth that needed a ttention, but the staff was c areful and precise throughout the procedure and the students were at ease once it started. The 24 students all received the dental care free through the county-wide sealant program. Since it began in 1998, the Hulens have been a part of the program. Weve seen every student in the school system at one time or another, said Stephen Hulen. The Hulens worked together on many of the students on Friday and spend much of their time volunteering as part of the program. Its a huge group effort, the doctors all over the county are a part of this. I can count on one hand the doctors that dont participate in it. Everyone works hard to make this program work, said Diane Hulen. The program has helped many families who can not always afford dental care to at least have some assistance so that children can recognize and practice appropriate dental habits. Its a wonderful program. Its a everyone working together. Everyone actively takes part in this sealant program, said Gonzalez. The students braved the bright lights and shiny tools of the doctors and came out with tips on how to keep their permanent teeth and their gums healthy.

By BETSYBLANEY Associated PressLUBBOCK, Texas O ne of the most conservat ive justices on the U.S. S upreme Court and one of t he most liberal ones s parred Friday over capital p unishment, the direct elect ion of senators and various o ther constitutional quest ions during a rare public d ebate that highlighted their p hilosophical differences. Antonin Scalia, 74, the l ongest-serving current just ice, appointed by R epublican President R onald Reagan, and S tephen Breyer, 72, a ppointed by Democrat Bill C linton, shared the stage in f ront of a crowd of thous ands during a West Texas e vent organized by Texas T ech University Law S chool. They particularly clashed o n the question of capital p unishment. Scalia argued that while t heres room for debate a bout whether the death p enalty is a good idea or a b ad idea, it is not cruel and u nusual punishment. Theres not an ouncew orth of room for debate as t o whether it constitutes c ruel and unusual punishm ent because, at the time t he Eighth Amendment was adopted the cruel and unusual punishments clause it was the only punishment for a felony. It was the definition of a felony. Its why we have Western movies because horse thieving was a felony. Breyer said 200 years ago, people thought flogging at a whipping post was not cruel and unusual. And indeed there were whipping posts where people were flogged virtually to death up until the middle of the 19th century, he said. If we had a case like that today Id like to see how youd vote. The two bandied about other issues, including Brown vs. The Board of Education, the landmark high court decision in the 1950s that outlawed school segregation case, cable television rulings, and how they view cases that come before them. Later, Scalia returned to the issue of flogging, saying its stupid but not unconstitutional, which is stupid. Theres a lot of stuff that stupid thats not constitutional. Scalia said he has no interest in what legislators intended when making a particular law. Breyer countered, saying judges need to go back and find out the purpose legislators had when crafting a bill. I dont at all look to what I think the legislature thought, Scalia said. I frankly dont care what the legislature thought. Breyer responded quickly, saying, Thats the problem, which brought thunderous laughter from the crowd. Youve got to go back to the purpose of the legislation, find out whats there, Breyer said. Thats the democratic way, cause you can then hold that legislature responsible, rather than us, who you cant control. At the end, the two were asked what they would change about the Constitution. Not much, Breyer said. Its a miracle and we see that through our work.

By MITCH WEISS Associated PressHICKORY, N.C. Police w ere confident a frecklef aced disabled 10-year-old g irl was killed, but the myst ery of how she died deepe ned when police said a set of r emains was uncovered five m iles away from where one o f her bones was found. The bone, discovered in s ome brush alongside Zahra B akers prosthetic leg, was d iscovered in an area near w here the family lived until m id-September. Zahras stepm other, Elisa Baker, is curr ently in jail, charged with t rying to throw off investigat ors with a bogus ransom n ote. Her father, Adam B aker, has been arrested on c harges unrelated to Zahras d isappearance and is free on b ail. Recently, Elisa Baker b egan cooperating with p olice and led them to the a reas where the remains and t he bone were found, though s he has not been charged in Z ahras death. Ive been dreading this m oment from early on in the i nvestigation, said Hickory P olice Chief Tom Adkins, w ho explained that investigat ors matched the bone with t he childs DNA. We have r ecovered enough physical e vidence to think we have f ound Zahra. Soon after Zahra was r eported missing, investigat ors cast doubt on accounts g iven by her father and stepm other. Police had trouble f inding anyone other than Z ahras parents who had seen h er alive in the weeks before h er disappearance, and a susp icious early morning fire o ccurred at the familys home s everal hours before she was r eported missing. It was then that police disc overed a ransom note addressed to Adam Bakers boss on the windshield of Bakers car. Police went to that mans house, and found him and his daughter to be fine. Elisa Baker, 42, admitted writing the note and has been charged with obstruction of justice, police said. Adam Baker, 33, is facing one count each of assault with a deadly weapon and failure to return rental property, two counts of communicating threats and five counts of writing worthless checks, authorities said. Zahra, whose cancer forced her to use a prosthetic leg and hearing aids, was reported missing by her parents Oct. 9. They said she was last seen in her bed at their home in Hickory, about 50 miles northwest of Charlotte. Zahra was born in Australia and moved to North Carolina about two years ago after her father met his soonto-be wife online. Zahras friends and relatives in Giru, Australia, described her as an outgoing, happy girl despite the cancer, and said she didnt want to come to the U.S. Investigators, agents, officers and staff who worked on this case are devastated that we were not able to find Zahra alive and bring her home safely, said Adkins, who wouldnt answer any questions at a news conference. District Attorney James Gaither Jr. refused to say if the girl was dismembered or if any more charges were imminent. Im not going to discuss that right now, Gaither said. Neighbors and relatives have said that Elisa Baker had a short temper and was abusive toward her stepdaughter. Caldwell County Department of Social Services investigated the family because Zahra went to school with bruises and a teacher alerted school officials, who have said they are prohibited by law from discussing the case. Zahras friends and family in Australia were less than thrilled when she moved away, especially since her medical treatments were free there. Kim Wright, who became something of a surrogate mother to Zahra in Australia, told The Associated Press they became friends four years ago at a cancer fundraising event. She was sitting in a chair waiting for her head to be shaved to raise money when Zahra approached, took her hand and told her not to be scared. Zahra was diagnosed with bone cancer about five years ago. She had her leg amputated and a few months later, doctors discovered tumors in her lungs. She had chemotherapy, but the treatment led to a partial hearing loss. Still, she remained upbeat, attending a camp for children with cancer and inspiring her fellow campers by taking part in all the physical activities. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, November 14, 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 Naiche will be remembered for much more than just his success.

Atradition started nine years ago to celebrate our nations heroes, Golden Corrals Military Appreciation Monday has served more than 2.5 million complimentary meals to military personnel and generated nearly $4.1 million in contributions for state and local DAVchapters. We have 45,000 employees in 485 restaurants nationwide that are very passionate about supporting our military service men and women and look forward to supporting Military Appreciation Monday annually, said Ted Fowler, president and chief executive officer of Golden Corral. While the current economy is challenging, we remain committed to recognizing the military through this program and look forward to reaching three million meals served and $5 million raised this year. Golden Corral has enlisted Gary Sinise, celebrated actor/director and Collective Soul, the platinum award-winning band, to record public service announcements for Milita ry Appreciation Monda y. Sinise and Collective So ul are all actively involved in supporting active-duty an d retired military personn el through a variety of organ izations and initiativ es including tours to milita ry installations overseas.

But what if spending a f ew minutes on such mund ane tasks could shave hund reds of dollars off your t axes? Here are a few sugg estions: Review your 401(k). If y ou havent already maxed o ut, ask your employer if y ou can make a catch-up c ontribution to your 401(k), 4 03(b) or 457 plan before y ears end. Most people can c ontribute up to $16,500 in 2 010, plus an additional $ 5,500 if theyre over 50. If you make pretax contrib utions, your taxable income i s reduced, which in turn l owers your taxes.

ly, free money), be sure to contribute at least enough to take full advantage of the match. The Retirement Contribution Effects on Your Paycheck calculator at www.dinkytown.com can help estimate the impact on your taxes. Note: The maximum 2010 contribution to a regular or Roth IRAis $5,000 ($6,000 for those 50 and older), but you have until April 15, 2011. Exhaust your FSAbalances. If you participate in employer-sponsored health care or dependent care flexible spending accounts (FSAs), which let you use pretax dollars to pay for eligible expenses, be sure to spend the full balance before the plan-year deadline (sometimes up to 75 days into the following year); otherwise, youll forfeit the remaining balance. You can use your health care FSAfor copayments, deductibles and medical devices (e.g., glasses, contact lenses, braces); however, effective January 1, 2011, over-the-counter medicines will only be eligible with a doctors prescription (an exception is made for insulin), so you may want to stock up now. Read IRS Publication 502 for a complete list of allowable and non-allowable expenses at www.irs.gov. Charitable contributions. If you itemize deductions this year, charitable contributions made to IRSapproved organizations by December 31, 2010, are generally tax-deductible. (See IRS Publication 78 for a complete list of organizations.) If youve got extra cash now and want to lower your 2010 taxes even further, consider moving up donations you would have made in 2011. Energy tax credits. Allowable tax credits for certain energy-efficient improvements to principal residences will be reduced after December 31, 2010, unless Congress votes to extend 2010 levels. Until then, you can claim a tax credit for 30 percent of the total cost of eligible products purchased in 2009 and 2010, up to a maximum combined credit of $1,500 per household. Eligible products include: biomass stoves; heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems; insulation; roofs (metal and asphalt); windows and doors; and non-solar water heaters. Carefully review the Energy Star website (www.energystar.gov/taxcredits) to make sure your purchases qualify. Gifts. Youre allowed to bestow a total of $1 million in gifts during your lifetime before the federal gift tax kicks in. One way to exceed that limit and avo id having to file a Gift Tax Return is by giving separate, annual gifts of up to $13,000 per year, per perso n. (Married couples filing join tly can give $26,000 per recipient.) Rules for gift an d estate taxes are complex, so read IRS Publication 950 and consult your financial advisor.

Fall Fall i nto Savings Savings Continued from page 1B BUSINESS Special to the News-SunWAUCHULASince its format ion through President Franklin D. R oosevelts New Deal program, P eace River Electric Cooperative ( PRECO), headquartered in W auchula, has grown exponentially. T oday, spanning 10 central Florida c ounties, the cooperative serves the e lectricity needs of nearly 35,000 c onsumers across almost 4,000 m iles of power lines. One of PRECOs earliest memb ers, Elizabeth Abbott, still receives e lectricity from the co-op after m ore than 60 years. Abbott, a Fort Green Springs resi dent, has lived most of her full life i n rural Hardee County. Born and r aised in the state of Maine, Abbott s upported the World War II effort b y working as a riveter in an airplane factory, married the first and only soldier she met on the job, moved to Florida a short time later in 1946, and with her husband, Albert Jr. Abbott, owned and operated a local grocery store for 11 years. Abbott has another distinction to add to her life story she is listed as Peace River Electric Cooperatives member No. 1. Recently, the co-op reached a milestone by issuing member No. 100,000. Member numbers are not reused, so, as individuals and businesses come and go in PRECOs service area, new sequential numbers are assigned. In 1940, when no stockholderowned utility would serve rural areas, local residents wanting the benefits of electricity joined together to form the cooperative. Afew years later in PRECOs early history, member numbers were assigned to all accounts and the Abbotts became member No. 1. Growing up in a city, Abbott enjoyed the advantages of having electricity in her childhood home. At the conclusion of the war, she and her husband traveled to rural Florida where they purchased a home a home with no electricity. I was 18. It really didnt bother me, she said. It was like an adventure. Life was different before electricity came to their new home. We started with three kerosene lamps, she adds, ...and I would only cook in the daylight, so I wouldnt need a lamp. In the days before they received electricity: We would hear about it and hear about it, then someone came out (from PRECO) and yes, we wanted it. Hiring an electrician to wire their home, they soon had one electric light in every room. Many things changed after the Abbotts received electric service. They soon added labor saving devices. It was wonderful to add a washing machine. It was my first appliance she said. Then my husband got a pump so we could have running water in the house, because we had a pitcher pump on the back porch. What were their first power bi lls like? Around $2, she said. If it had been any more, we couldn t have paid it. In 1959, the couple built a ne w home a short distance away but st ill enjoyed the benefits of receivin g power from PRECO. When asked what the co-op s greatest asset over the years h as been, she replies, Service. Elizabeth and Jr. celebrated 5 8 years of marriage before his dea th in 2003. Today, she still lives in t he home they shared for so man y years, a home full of fond mem ories. PRECO is grateful for the oppo rtunity to serve long-term, dedicat ed members like the Abbotts.

By RANDOLPH E. SCHMID Associated PressWASHINGTON The Postal Service said Friday it lost $8.5 billion last year despite deep cuts of more than 100,000 jobs and other reductions in recent years. The post office had estimated it would lose $6 billion to $7 billion, but a sharp decline in mail took a toll. Increased use of the Internet and the recession, which cut advertising and other business mail, meant less money for the agency. For the year that ended Sept. 30, the post office had income of $67.1 billion, down $1 billion from the previous year. Expenses totaled $70 billion, a decline of about $400 million. The post office also was required to make a $5.5 billion payment for future retiree health benefits. Over the last two years, the Postal Service realized more than $9 billion in cost savings, primarily by eliminating about 105,000 fulltime equivalent positions more than any other organization, anywhere, chief financial officer Joe Corbett said in a statement. We will continue our relentless efforts to innovate and improve efficiency. However, the need for changes to legislation, regulations and labor contracts has never been more obvious. The post office is currently in contract negotiations with two of its unions, with two more scheduled to be negotiated next year. The loss of $8.5 billion in 2010 was $4.7 billion more than the previous year. Mail volume totaled 170.6 billion pieces, compared with 176.7 billion in 2009, a decline of 3.5 percent. At the same time, volume was declining the post office was required to begin service to thousands of new addresses to accommodate population growth and new businesses. The post office has asked Congress for permission to reduce mail delivery to fivedays-a-week and to eliminate annual payments for future retiree health benefits. Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del., blamed the loss on the recession and operating restraints placed on postal management. The result, he said, may represent the most serious threat to the post office in its 200-year history. If corrective action is not taken quickly, the Postal Service will likely run out of cash and borrowing authority by this time next year, placing its ability to continue operations in serious jeopardy, said Carper, who urged quick congressional action. Fredric V. Rolando, president of the National Association of Letter Carriers, said the loss comes as no surprise. For the Postal Service to improve its financial situation, the government must let the USPS manage its financial affairs in the most effective manner possible, like any other business, he said. Essential to that process would be for Congress to fix an onerous congressional mandate from 2006, which obligates the Postal Service to make annual payments of $5.5 billion to pre-fund future retiree health benefits. No other institution in America, public or private, has to do this. Arequest from the agency for a 2-cent increase in postage rates to take effect next year was recently turned down by the independent Postal Rate Commission. The post office has appealed that decision in federal court. While the post office does not receive tax money for its operations it still must answer to Congress, which has been reluctant to agree to closing of local post offices and centers. Some have suggested privatizing the service, but the requirement to provide service everywhere in the country at the same price is not likely to be attractive to private companies. Of particular concern has been the decline in the lucrative first-class mail, largely consisting of personal letters and cards, bills and payments and similar items. First-class mail volume fell 6.6 percent in 2010, 8.6 percent in 2009, and 4.8 percent in 2008. Traditionally, this mail has produced more than half of total revenue. Volume for standard mail advertising and similar business items improved somewhat, indicating some signs of economic recovery, but generates less income. Postmaster General John Potter, who retires in December, has developed a 10-year plan for the future of the post office, but parts of that plan require congressional action.

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?

Associated PressWASHINGTON B reast cancer surgeon K athryn Wagner has poste d a warning in her waiti ng room about a different s ort of risk to patients h ealth: Shell stop taking n ew Medicare cases if C ongress allows looming c uts in doctorspay to go t hrough. The potential cuts have r aised alarms that real d amage to Medicare could r esult if the lame-duck C ongress winds up in a p artisan standoff and fails t o act by Dec. 1, when an i nitial 23 percent reduct ion would hit. My frustration level is a t a nine or 10 right now, s aid Wagner, who pract ices in San Antonio. I am exceptionally e xhausted with these a nnual and biannual t hreats to cut my reimb ursement by drastic a mounts. As a business person, I c ant budget at all because I have no idea how much m oney is going to come in. Medicine is a business. P rivate practice is a busin ess. The cuts have nothing to d o with President Barack O bamas health care overh aul. Theyre the unwante d consequence of a 1990s b udget-balancing law w hose requirements C ongress has routinely p ostponed. But these cuts dont go a way; they come back for a bigger bite. Doctors have muddled t hrough with temporary r eprieves for years.

By DAVID GERMAIN and HILARYFOX Associated PressLONDON The minist er of magic proclaims that d ark times have arisen in t he opening moments of the n ew Harry Potter film a nd the turmoil that follows l ives up to that billing. Harry Potter and the D eathly Hallows: Part 1 c hronicles the chaos that e ngulfs the wizardry world a s evil Lord Voldemort s eizes power and sets out to d estroy Harry. The film, which prem iered Thursday night b efore its theatrical release n ext week, is an epic 2 1/2h our tease that should leave f ans salivating for Part 2, t he final Potter movie, w hich does not arrive until n ext July. Fans may leave frustrated t hat they have to wait eight m onths for the finale. But t he seventh and final novel i n J.K. Rowlings fantasy s eries needed to be broken i nto two parts, said Daniel R adcliffe, who stars as the t een wizard Harry. I was always very much i n favor of it being two p arts, and I think most peop le were, simply because w e all realized there was no w ay you could do justice to t he book and really capture t he story in one film, R adcliffe said. In the first six books, t here was secondary action t hat could be cut from the m ovies, themes which, w hile exciting and while f ans love them, simply d ont add anything to the m ain thrust of the story, R adcliffe said. In the seve nth book, there is very litt le extraneous stuff thats n ot actually contributing h eavily to the main plot l ine. Part 1 sends Harry and p als Hermione (Emma W atson) and Ron (Rupert G rint) outside their usual h aunts at Hogwarts School o f Witchcraft and Wizardry. Theyre in perpetual danger as they hit the road to hide from Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) and his followers, the Death Eaters, while simultaneously seeking to find and destroy magical artifacts that are the key to Voldemorts dark powers. Its kind of an edgy road movie, where these three iconic characters, who weve always seen in this magical place called Hogwarts, are thrust out into the big, bad world and have to fend for themselves and survive, said David Yates, who directed both parts of Deathly Hallows as well as the fifth and sixth Harry Potter films. As much as we love Hogwarts, we needed a fresh environment. We needed to be out of our comfort zones, definitely, Watson said. And whats Voldemort aiming to get out of all of this? Everyone knows, dont they? They read all the books, dont they? They all know what hes up to: world domination, total power, Fiennes said. The story tests the bonds among Harry, Hermione and Ron as jealousy, suspicion, bickering and feelings of betrayal undermine their relationship. They all take painful leave of their homes: Harry taking a last glance at the sad little closet under the stairs where he lived as a boy; Ron worrying about the safety of his large and loving family; Hermione making an agonizing act of self-sacrifice to protect her parents. Along the way, they journey into enemy territory at the Ministry of Magic, which Voldemorts followers have turned into a fascist monolith bearing the slogan Magic Is Might. They learn of the Deathly Hallows, powerful gifts bestowed upon three brothers by Death itself. And they have a savage encounter with fanatic Voldemort flunky Bellatrix Lestrange, played with wicked glee by Helena Bonham Carter, one of the highlights of the franchises roster of esteemed British actors. Newcomer Rhys Ifans is a standout as the spacey but tragic wizard journalist Xenophilius Lovegood, while Bill Nighy joins the cast as Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour. The returning actors include Alan Rickman, Robbie Coltrane, John Hurt, Brendan Gleeson, Imelda Staunton, Jason Isaacs, Tom Felton, Julie Walters, David Thewlis and Bonnie Wright. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 will bring to a close one of Hollywoods most remarkable film franchises, a gambit of more than a decade by Warner Bros. to bring all of Rowlings novels to the screen before the young stars outgrew their roles. The result will be a 20hour saga that lets fans watch Harry grow from a shy, neglected 11-year-old to a bold, noble young man. I dont think itll take too long before these films do finish and finally come out for cinemas all over the world to be having Harry Pottermarathons, where they just play them all back to back, Radcliffe said. And I imagine attendance will be huge. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, November 14, 2010Page 5B COUNTRY CLUB REALTY 863-382-6575www .CountryClubRealtyofSebring.comTWO LOCATIONSTOSERVE YOU GOLF HAMMOCK 1 Hammock Circle Sebring, FL 33872 COUNTRY CLUB OF SEBRING 4800 Haw Branch Rd.

LIVING C SECTION Inside This Section Arts & Leisure5,7C Crossword2C Dear Abby2C Horoscope7C Living With Children2C Pause & Consider2C Senior Scene3,4C Watershed6C News-Sun Sunday, November 14, 2010 PUMPKIN MERINGUE PIEBy Kathy Kingsley There are some die-hard pumpkin pie fans in my family, but there are also quite a few who love lemon meringue. I created this recipe to please both factions, and it was a hit right from the start. It now makes an appearance at our holiday table every year. INGREDIENTS: For the pie: 9-inch deep-dish piecrust (Use your favorite or make our Foolproof Piecrust, far right) 1 (15-ounce) can solid-pack pumpkin (about 2 cups) 1 cup heavy cream 1/2 cup whole milk 2 large eggs 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon ginger 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves 1/4 teaspoon saltFor the meringue: 3 large egg whites, at room temperature 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar 1/3 cup sugar1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Shape the piecrust edge into a highstanding rim. Line the crust with a sheet of aluminum foil, gently pressing it into place. Pour about an inch of dry rice or dried beans onto the foil to weigh it down. Place the crust on the center oven rack and bake it for 15 minutes. 2. Carefully remove the foil and rice or beans by lifting the foil at the edges. Set it aside (the rice or beans can be reused several times). With a fork, prick the bottom of the crust 5 or 6 times to prevent puffing. Lower the heat to 375 degrees and bake the crust 10 minutes more. Transfer it to a wire rack. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Note: Frozen crusts do not require foil or weights and should be baked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes total. 3. In a large bowl, whisk together all the filling ingredients until well blended. Set the piecrust on a baking sheet and pour in the filling. Bake the pie until it s puffy around the sides and set in the center, about 50 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool. Raise the oven temperature to 375 degrees. 4. While the pie cools, make the meringue. In a medium-size bowl, use an electric mixer at medium speed to beat the egg whites until frothy about 2 minutes. Add the cream of tartar and continue to beat until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes more. Slowly blend in the sugar, then increase the mixers speed to medium-high and beat the egg whites until they are stiff and glossy, about 2 minutes more. 5. Spoon the meringue onto the pie, then use the back of the spoon to form small peaks. Return the pie to the oven and bake it until the meringue is golden brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer the pie to a wire rack to cool completely, about 3 hours. Serves 10.MANGO PIEBy Monica Bhide One of the sweetest discoveries I made several years ago as a newcomer to the United States was pie. This one, a frozen treat thats easy to assemble, unites some of my favorite childhood flavors mango, exotic saffron and bold and flowery cardamom with an all-American graham cracker crust. INGREDIENTS: 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk 11/2cups pureed or mashed canned mango (we used mango slices in syrup, drained) 1/4teaspoon saffron threads 1/4teaspoon ground cardamom (9-inch) graham cracker piecrust Whipped cream (optional)1. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer set on medium to beat the cream cheese until fluf fy, about 2 minutes. Add the condensed milk, mango, saffron and cardamom and continue to beat until the mixture is smooth and well blended, about 2 minutes more. 2. Pour the filling into the piecrust, then cover and freeze the dessert for at least 6 hours. Defrost it for 10 minutes before serving and top with whipped cream, if you like. Serves 10.SWEDISH APPLE PIEBy Dianne Lauffer The recipe for this lesser-known version of apple pie was passed down to me from my mother. Though the pie lacks a traditional crust, its simple pastry topping creates a delicious, pleasantly crunchy layer. My family loves the raisins and nuts, but the dessert is equally tasty without them. INGREDIENTS: For the filling:2/3 cup raisins 3 medium apples (about 2/3cups), baking variety, peeled and sliced 1 tablespoon sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon nutmegFor the topping:3/4 cup butter or margarine 1 cup flour 1 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 egg, beaten 1/4 cup chopped walnuts Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream (optional)1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Place raisins in a small bowl, cover them with hot water and microwave them on high until they are plump, about 20 to 30 seconds. Drain the raisins, then combine them with the apple slices. Transfer the fruit to a 9-inch pie pan (it should be no more than two-thirds full). 2. In a small bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and sprinkle the mixture over the fruit. 3. To make the topping, first melt the butter or mar garine and set it aside. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, salt and egg until theyre evenly blended. Whisk in the butter or margarine, then spread the topping over the fruit and sprinkle on the nuts. 4. Bake until golden brown, about 40 minutes. Serve it warm, with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if you like. Serves 10. CHOCOLATE CHESS PIEBy Ken Haedrich Make a delicious break from tradition with this chocolaty Southern staple. When you think of Thanksgiving desserts, chocolate pie probably doesnt come to mind. But each time I make this luscious Southern treat, even the most traditional holiday feasters cant resist a slice. INGREDIENTS: 9-inch deep-dish piecrust 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped 11/4cups sugar 1 tablespoon fine yellow cornmeal 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 3 large eggs, room temperature 1 large egg yolk 1/4 cup milk 11/2teaspoons vanilla extract Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream (optional)1. Follow the prebake instructions in steps 1 and 2 of the Pumpkin Meringue Pie recipe, but lower the heat to 325 degrees after 2. Put the butter in the top of a double boiler set over but not in, slow-simmering water (or place a heat-safe glass or metal bowl in a similarly sized pot). Scatter the chocolate over the butter without mixing and let it stand until the chocolate and butter have melted, about 6 minutes. Whisk the chocolate mixture until its smooth, then remove it from the heat and set it aside for 10 minutes to cool. 3. In a large bowl, use your hands to combine the sugar cornmeal, salt and cinnamon. In another bowl, lightly beat together the eggs and yolk. Add them to the sugar mixture, along with the milk and vanilla extract, and whisk together until theyre evenly blended. Then whisk in the chocolate mixture until smooth and pour the filling into the piecrust. 4. Place the pie on the center oven rack and bake it for 35 minutes. Rotate it 180 degrees, then continue to bake until it puf fs up and forms a thin crusty layer, about 20 minutes more. Transfer the pie to a wire rack to cool for at least 11/2hours. Serve it slightly warm or at room temperature, with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if you like. Serves 10.FOOLPROOF PIECRUSTBy Ken Haedrich If I had to choose just one piecrust to use with all my recipes, this would be the one. Its flavorful, easy, and complements both sweet and savory fillings. INGREDIENTS: 11/2cups flour 1 tablespoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 6 tablespoons cold vegetable shortening, cut into pieces 2 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 1/4-inch pieces 1/4 cup cold water1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour sugar and salt. Add the shortening and butter and use your fingers or a pastry blender to combine the ingredients into a coarse, damp meal. 2. Slowly add the water, using a fork to blend the mixture as you pour Continue to blend until it coheres. 3. Turn the dough out onto a lar ge piece of plastic wrap. Pack it together, being careful not to overwork it, then flatten the dough into a disk about 3/4inch thick. Wrap it in the plastic and refrigerate it for 1 hour. 4. On a sheet of floured waxed paper roll the dough into a 13-inch circle, then place it in a 9-inch deepdish pie pan. Crimp the edges, then place it in the freezer for 20 minutes to firm before baking. Invite friends to gather the day afterThanksgivingto share a fun afternoon and their leftover pies. Weve got four irresistible recipes to get you started.PHOTOS BYLAURAJOHANSEN/DISNEYFAMILYFUN MAGAZINEhe holidays are filled with food, fun and family time, but Kimberly Stoney wanted to make friends a bigger part of her familys festivities without adding a lot of extra wor k to an already busy season. So Kimberly, her husband, Sam and their 8-year-old son, Elliott, started a day-after-Thanksgiving tradition they call their Leftover Pie Party. Every year, they invite about a dozen families over for an afternoon of revelry and surplus sweets. W e wanted to keep things simple, so each family is asked to bring a pie left over from their Thanksgiving meal. We get to spend more time enjoying friends and all their delicious desserts! she says.

DearAbby: I have been married to Ben, a wonderful man, for seven years. We have three children. We get along well, but I have one complaint. Its about sex. Im always in the mood but he isnt. We both work fulltime jobs and take care of the kids and the house. My best friend tells me I have the sex drive of a male and her husband wishes she was more like me. I am not a nymphomaniac, but Id like to be intimate with my husband more than every other week. When were together, I almost feel like its a chore to him. Is there something wrong with me? I have never cheated on Ben, nor have I considered it. I feel this is an issue in our marriage, but he thinks I am overreacting. Waiting for More DearWaiting: When a couple has problems in the bedroom, it can affect every aspect of the marriage. You are not overreacting. By implying that you are, your husband is attempting to minimize your feelings. He may have a low sex drive, no sex drive or a hormone problem. Alicensed marriage counselor might be able to help the two of you discuss this sensitive subject and a visit to his doctor could help him find out if his problem is physical. You need more help and so does he than anyone can give you in a letter. DearAbby: My grandmother passed away this week. For the last five years my mother was her sole caregiver. Now that Grandma is gone, Im worried about my mother. She sacrificed her life and friendships to take care of Grandma and GreatGrandma. Now, 10 years later, shes at a total loss. My mother is a wonderful lady. I dont want to see her hurt and isolated like this. All the relatives are still in town and a lot of us are off work, but when everyone returns to work, its going to be hard for her. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Sad Survivor DearSad: Your mother may need some time to get over the loss of her mother and to figure out where to go from here. Dont push her, but do keep an eye on her and encourage her to start reconnecting with friends and activities she once enjoyed. Grieving is an individual process that can take time (or not), depending upon how prepared she was for your grandmother to go. And hold a good thought. Having done all she could for her mother and grandmother, she may have no regrets and recover faster than you think she will. If that doesnt happen, her doctor, minister or the funeral home can help her locate a grief support group. DearAbby: I have already decorated my office for the winter holidays, but my co-worker says before Thanksgiving is too early to display a snowman. When do you decorate for the hol iday season? Festive Southern G irl DearSouthern Girl: Th is year, in late September, I began seeing Christmas dec orations in some stores, and references to Christmas lay away plans being mentione d in the media a few months before that. However, in a work environment I would wait until after the first wee k of December to begin displaying Christmas decorations. P.S. If your snowman is a generic winter decoration, i t might be appropriate to wa it until after the first snowfall Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Its a misb elief, actually, because probl ems that are a function of t he human condition do not a lways respond positively to h uman effort. This recently c ame to mind as I contemp lated two questions submitt ed by readers. The first came from the m other of a pre-teen boy w hom she described as a m elancholy mess moody, u naffectionate, and negative. H e has been a minor league m isanthrope since early on in h is life, and mom does not w ant him taking this problem w ith him into the majors. On the positive side, hes g ood-looking, athletic, and a rtistic. What can I do to help get h im out of his funk? Mom a sks, to which I answer proba bly not much. After all, s hes been trying without s uccess for at least a decade. In the first place, it is not t he responsibility of parents t o solve all of their childrens p roblems before said children reach adulthood and emancipate, nor is it realistic to think that can be accomplished, even with colossal parental effort. This is especially the case when the problem in question is related to a childs temperament, which the research strongly suggests is inborn (although not necessarily inherited). We all reach adulthood with problems our parents could not have solved for us. At that point, one either rises to the challenge or not. And even with complete commitment, some problems of living are not ever going to be solved. One just has to learn to live with them and do his or her best to contain them such that they dont affect others. Again, this is simply the consequence of being born human. So my advice to this mom is to accept that her sons melancholy is his problem, not hers, and to remember that while human love does not conquer all, it always benefits both the lover and the loved. Besides, this good-looking, athletic boy is about to enter his teen years, during which both of those characteristics are going to be mightily rewarded by his peers. It may well be that a couple of years of positive feedback from kids his own age will accomplish for this youngster what his mom and dad cannot hope to accomplish. The second question came from a woman whose sisterin-law is forever bragging about her talented children and putting down other parents whose kids are not so blessed (or cursed, depending on ones point of view). My petitioner wants to know how to handle her seemingly egomaniacal relative. I say seemingly because a mother who lives her life through her children in this manner is obviously covering up deepseated feelings of personal inadequacy. She may also be over-investing in her kids to avoid dealing with problems in her marriage. In any case, she needs to put some boundaries between herself and her children and claim a valid adult life for herself. The probability of her doing this, however, is slim. Thats most unfortunate, because when her kids leave home and establish lives of their own, she is likely to be a very unhappy individual. No one is going to be able to say anything to this woman that will cause her to experience sudden self-revelation. Therefore, I advised my writer to stay away from her toxic sister-in-law as much as possible; and when she cant avoid her, to ignore her; and when she cant ignore her, to regard her as an unfortunate who deserves compassion, all the more so because she doesnt realize shes being slowly destroyed from within. Family psychologist John Rosemond answers parents questions on his Web site at www.rosemond.com. Parents cant solve all the problems before children reach adulthood We had looked at quite a few houses t hat day. Eager to find just the right one, w e persevered with the realtor to just o ne more. Walking in the door, we were greeted b y the aroma of cinnamon and apples b aking. Afire crackling in the dining room f ireplace warmed the knotty pine interio r.Our heads swiveled as we stepped i nto the sunken living room with huge, s olid beams running across the length of t he large room. Welcoming bookshelves r an alongside a stone mantle with woods tove. While across the way, we w atched snowflakes falling while we t ook in the wooded backyard through a h uge bay window. It didnt take long for us to agree this w as to be our first house together. We p rayed our marriage and family would b e as welcoming an aroma for all who e ntered as the cinnamon and apples had b een for us. Have you ever realized that as an individual, as a couple, as a family we bring an aroma into a room with us? Think about it. If someone walks into a room without a smile, turning an abrupt shoulder toward you and having a haughty attitude, your nose twitches with irritation. But, on the other hand, when you are greeted with smiles and hugs, its like inhaling a desirable, pleasing aroma. It sets the tone for how things will go. Its important for married couples to realize how easily the tone of the home can be charged with negative vibes or positive ones.Our attitudes, countenance and body language create that aroma. That first house sounds like the perfect, romantic hideaway. But, little did we know then, it harbored an enemy to my husbands health that tested our faith and romance. However, we learned to draw closer to God and each other. But first we had to go through the trials that illness and allergies threw our way. Sometimes unpleasant aromas swirled around us through unnecessary, unkind words spoken or body language displayed. So we sought the Lord and he reminded us of Ephesians 4: 31, NKJV, Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Recently I heard this great way to thinkbefore speaking.T= true; H = helpful; I = inspiring; N = necessary; K = kind.Is what I am about to say true, helpful, inspiring, necessary and kind? What kind of aroma does each of us bring into a room? Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent and an award-winnin g writer. What kind of aroma does each of us bring into a room?

What is the visit to the Y oung Eagles Flight E xperience doing in the seni or citizen section of the p aper? Well heres my reas on. Years ago I was stationed i n Wilminton, Del., with the n ew United States Air Force. I had remained in the R eserve Force in order to s tay current in high horse p ower airplanes and was curr ently flying C-47s all over t he country. On one of my S aturdays off I was asked a nd accepted the task of i ndoctrinating a group of the y oung folks on their first airp lane flight. I flew 10 of t hese young kids in the b ackseat of a North A merican T-6 one at a time a nd a great time was had by a ll including men. This was long before the E AAwas ever organized and w as sponsored by the Air F orce as a goodwill gesture t o the citizens of the area. W e had a very good turn out a nd flew quite a few kids in t heir first airplane ride. I wanted to see what diff erences there were between t hen and now. I was very s urprised, there was no diff erence. The kids and their p arents lined up to fill out t he required forms and then w aited for the planes flown b y EAAvolunteer pilots in F AA-licensed craft to come b ack and pick them up. I watched as the youngs ters alighted from the p lanes; there were four of t hem ranging from a little t wo-seater to a six-passenger j ob. The faces of the kids as t hey left the plane showed h ow they felt about the f light. At this moment every o ne of them was a pilot to b e. However, due to various c ircumstances of the 25 or so kids that flew this day, only one or two would actually become active pilots. Some may realize their dreams of today and become active in the aviation community as commercial pilots or enter the USAF and serve their country and get the best training that the world has to offer. Which ever way they go, they will never forget todays first trip into the wild blue yonder. Senior citizens? Well every one of the folks running the show were either senior citizens or were nearing the threshold. All the pilots were in their 40s or 50s and had piled up many hours of flight time and were very competent in their job. They and the folks supporting the program were donating their time and efforts to further the aims of the Young Eagles program. The lady doing the paper work? She worked diligently during the hours the flying went on. The lunch crew also worked like beavers to feed the hungry kids and parents. This program and many other affairs were sponsored financially by the Experimental Aircraft Association fairs and air shows all over the country. The show at Oshkosh, Wis., the biggest air show in the world, is only one of many events. Locally, we have the Sun and Fun Show in Lakeland yearly and nearby the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo at Sebring Airport in midJanuary. This show has surprised all the aviation world and has become one of the things to see if you are at all interested in light airplane flight. Manufacturers and distributors from all over the world will show their wares at the Expo. You can fly in the planes and touch them close up. There will be seminars on flying the planes and also on rules and regulations governing their control. So you see, this is a program by seniors and soon-tobe seniors carried on for the benefit of seniors to be in the far future. See you at the Expo in January (if I live that long). It would be interesting to get a list of the names of all the kids who flew on this day and in 20 years see where they have progressed in the aeronautical world. I am sure that the little girl who was asking all the questions at the last hangar section of their program would be on the list of prominent airwomen. These kids have been vaccinated with the flying bug. Now it is up to general aviation to make the shots take. Make flying available to them at a price they or their parents can afford. Very few of the parents of these kids can afford the $75 or more per hour that it will take to further the kids aerial (flying) education. There are many good schools in the country that offer fine degrees in aeronautics. They are all expensive. I am not a recruiter for the Air Force but if you can qualify for entry into one of their many programs, you will have it made. Jobs are waiting for ex-Air Force people, pilots and ground personnel who have qualified in their specialty. The future is up in the air whether you want to go to a distant planet in a spaceship or to the next town on a back pack gyro. You kids are the masters of the future. Make the best of it.

Jonathan Skipper p urchased land in Section 6, T S35S; R28 nestled beneath g igantic oaks, tall strands of c abbage palms, and towering c ypress trees in surrounding s wamp. He cleared enough o f the thick native growth to b uild a cabin, cow pens, and p lanted citrus trees. This is t odays Highland Hammocks S tate Park. The wilderness was u nspoiled then with crawling c reatures coming out of hidi ng at night, the piercing cry o f the Florida panther echoi ng through the swamp, then a t first light a melody of c hanting birds awakened the d ay. It must have been one o f the most peaceful and b eautiful places on Earth ... a nd still is. The familys unique histor y is integral to Highlands C ounty. I remember even m y grandfather Ches when asked where he was born, would never say anything about a town but always quoted the section, township, and range. The homestead was located near the western edge of Highlands Hammock State Park known then as Hookers or Elands Hammock. Over the years, many visitors have traveled to Highlands Hammock State Park to camp, hike and bike through the pristine beauty of land where John Skippers heritage first began more than 130 years ago. Most people dont realize that in the 1800s, the park was on the edge of the thriving community of Crewsville; you might say the Skippers and the Eilands lived in the suburbs of Crewsville. The community had a store, church and school. The children attended classes at the Parnell School operated by DeSoto County, a one room building near the rear exit of the park. One story I remember my grandfather telling me was about his brother Dink when they were walking to school one day through the hammock. I guess Uncle Dink decided that he could pick up a skunk by the tail and throw it in a pond before it could spray him. Well, it didnt work and apparently the teacher didnt appreciate the new smell in the classroom. Dinks school ended early that day and all the clothes had to be buried. The Skippers were part of the lucrative cattle drives in the late 1800s across Central Florida to Punta Rassa on the west coast where cows boarded steamboats headed for Cuba. The cattle drives lasted weeks but the profits were worth the grueling lifestyle herding thousands of cattle on the rutted trails bringing $20 in gold or silver per head. In those days, trust was a factor with old timers preferring to be paid in Spanish gold bullion; they never trusted paper money or banks. Although silver was also exchanged, the cow hunters found gold to be lighter and easier to carry in sidesaddles. As my grandfather tells it, at the end of the drive, the Skipper family gathered for Sunday dinner at Grandpas house behind the hammock and divided up the cattle proceeds. He remembers the rage of his uncle and father accusing that damned old man Lykes for not paying them in Spanish gold.They were extremely mad because Lykes had tried to pay them with a bank draft instead of silver or gold. The 1870s through the s was an economic windfall for ranchers as cattle prices averaged $14 per head. As many as 800 head were shipped from Punta Rassa and herded to points in Havana, Sague, LaGrande and Nuivestes. The Skippers were the last family to live in Highlands Hammock State Park but their legacy continues today.

From peppermint lattes and potato latkes, carols to dreidels, there are reminders at every twist and turn. Seniors should also be reminded that its time to sign up for Medicares prescription drug benefit, known as Part D. From now until the end of the year, seniors can enroll in Part D or switch from their existing plan to a new one. All those eligible should take advantage of this open enrollment period. Unlike most public health programs, the Medicare prescription drug benefit is administered by the private sector. The program is subsidized by taxpayer dollars, but seniors are allowed to select the drug benefit that best suits their needs. Providers must compete for this business, whi ch leads to more choices, be tter service, and lower pr emiums. This feature t he freedom to compariso n shop between competin g Medicare drug plans is one of the reasons the pr ogram is both popular an d cost-effective. Part D has a 92 perce nt satisfaction rate among its beneficiaries. And the pr ogram has reduced the num ber of seniors without a drug plan by 17 percen t. Meanwhile, the price of Part D over the next deca de is expected to be near ly $120 billion less than orig inally estimated. Many seniors worri ed that healthcare refor m would put the drug bene fit in danger. But now that t he dust has settled, it loo ks like Part D has emerged as an even stronger program How to get the most out of the season See GETpage 4C

Fri. 9am 4pm Closed Wednesdays in Summer According to the Centers f or Medicare and Medicaid S ervices (CMS) 99 percent of s eniors in Part D will have a ccess to a plan in 2011 with a premium that is the same or l ower than what they are payi ng now. In fact, CMS estim ates that the average senior w ill pay $30 per month for c overage in 2011, just $1 m ore than this year. Also, thanks to the healthc are reform bill, the gap in c overage known as the donut hole is about to start c losing. In the past, seniors f aced a gap in coverage after s pending a certain amount on d rugs until they hit a catas trophic level. This was c onfusing and often an u nforeseen cost for seniors. B ut beginning in January, A mericas drug companies w ill start providing eligible s eniors who reach the donut h ole a 50 percent discount on t heir brand-name drug purchases. The donut hole will be completely closed by 2020. The open-enrollment period gives seniors a valuable opportunity to get the most out of their Medicare drug benefit. Even beneficiaries who are happy with their current Part D plan should visit www.Medicare.gov and consider their options. There are dozens of plans out there, so everyone should be able to find one thats both affordable and well-suited to their needs. Like holiday sales, this opportunity will be gone by the New Year. Seniors should make sure they get the most out of the season and their Medicare drug benefit before the end of the year. Peter J. Pitts is president of the Center for Medicine in the Public Interest and a former Federal Drug Administration associate commissioner. Continued from page 3C Get most of the season Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Elizabeth Mackintosh, a lifelong resident of Avon Park, recently celebrated her 90th birthday with more than 30 members of her extended family. Those attending included her daughter and son-inlaw, Ila and George Waters of Winter Haven; son and daughter-in-law, Sherwin and Debbie Mackintosh of Gainesville; five of her six grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; her brother, Sol Moseley of Avon Park; niece, nephew, two great nephews; three greatgreat nephews and one great-great niece. Elizabeth now lives with her daughter and son-in-law in Winter Haven and enjoys reading, church activities, patio gardening and feeding the birds and water fowl at their lakeside home. She says having four generations of her family honoring her on her 90th birthday was the best surprise she has ever had.

For more information about getting a replacement card, go to www.socialsecurity.gov/ssnumber. Question: How much difference will it make if I defer retirement benefits until age 70? Answer: It can be significant. Lets say your full retirement age is 66 and your monthly benefit starting at that age is $1,000. If you choose to defer receiving benefits until age 70, you would increase your monthly benefit amount to $1,320. Thats almost an extra $4,000 each year for the rest of your life. This increase is from delayed retirement credits you receive for your decision to postpone receiving benefits past your full retirement age. The benefit amount at age 70, in this example is 32 percent more than you would receive per month if you chose to start getting benefits at full retirement age. And, this higher benefit would continue for as long as you live. You can estimate your future benefits at different ages using our Retirement Estimator at www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator. Question: I receive my Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments on the first of the month. What happens when the first of the month falls on a Saturday?

B ut did you know that recyc ling, in some form or anothe r has been around since the d ays of Plato? Archeologists b elieve that early man reused m ost of their household w aste, mostly because there w asnt a whole lot of new m aterial available. H istorically, man has collecte d scrap metals to melt down a nd reuse. Dust and ash were c ollected from dustmen to m ake bricks. Rags have been g athered to make fabric. In w ar time, recycling was vital b ecause of the lack of r esources and was considered a patriotic duty. The philosop hy behind the idea of recyc ling in the past was most l ikely economic and practic al. Acquiring new or virgin m aterials was much more c ostly and difficult and there w ere little or no public waste s ervices. Today, we may recycle for d ifferent reasons. Perhaps the m ain reason is that it keeps o ur landfills from overflowi ng. In an age where it is less e xpensive to buy it new than t o get it fixed, our planet is t aking on a lot of trash. S pace is a huge issue espec ially near crowded urban a reas. Even in the rural setting, what landowner wants to live near a landfill? The not in my back yard concept keeps many landfills from being placed in rural settings. Studies have shown that 60-75 percent of the garbage dumped in landfills can be recycled. If the garbage that was placed in trashcans would have been recycled, the landfills wouldnt be filling up so fast. Many folks feel that by recycling, they are lessening the impact on global warming. Production of some materials, such as aluminum, produces significant amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. By recycling used aluminum cans, the amount of CO2 released is reduced by 95 percent. Also recycled paper is a way to reduce the amount of trees that are cut down. For each ton of paper recycled, about 17 trees are saved. As you know, trees produce oxygen and help to reduce the carbon footprint. Most of us want to be good stewards of the environment and our natural resources. But, especially with todays financial challenges, its good to have something that creates jobs in the process. The concept of recycling is getting more and more popular. Recycling creates many jobs. Think about it. Someone has to collect the recyclables, sort them, process them and come up with an end product. The need for recycling continues to grow as technology changes and populations increase. America Recycles Day is held every year on Nov. 15 to raise awareness about the benefits of recycling and buying products made with recycled materials. This national day of recognition has been in effect since 1997. Communities from all over America have come together to promote recycling. Their goals are to educate folks and get them excited about recycling and what can be done when people work together. For 2010, approximately 1,500 events have already been planned for the big day. To make our lives a little simpler, Lowes now has recycle bins at the front of their stores. They will take rechargeable batteries, cell phones, compact fluorescent lamps and plastic bags all in one convenient location. These items may be tough to get rid of and hard to store for later recycling plans. And for your regular recyclables such as plastic, paper and cardboard, there are many bins around Highlands County that are easily accessible. Why not join with thousands of others on this special day and do your part and pitch in? Recycling doesnt cost us anything and it sends a great message to our kids and grandkids. After all, sometimes its the little things that make such a big difference.Recycling statistics82 million tons of materials are recycled in the United States. 53.4 percent of all paper products are being recycled. There is about 100 percent increase in the total recycling in the United States during the past decade. Each person produces 4.6 pounds of trash per day in the United States. In 2005, roughly 8,550 curbside recycling programs existed throughout the United States. 8,875 programs existed in 2003. United States recycles about 32 percent of its waste today. An average American produced 800 kilograms of rubbish in the year 2005, compared to only 577 kilograms per person in Western Europe.

SEBRING Music in the P ark continues at 7 p.m. S aturday with the old time m ountain music blend of M ountain Brew. Aconcoct ion of traditional mountain m usic mixed with country, f olk, rock, bluegrass, Cajun a nd even Celtic music is perf ormed by husband and wife d uet, Andy and Sara Burr. It isnt quite what we o riginally intended, says A ndy. We thought of our music a s a distillation of influences r ather than a brew and we h ad this cool logo of a smili ng crescent moon holding a j ug labeled with three Xs. T he jug obviously holds m oonshine, also known as m ountain dew. We originally c alled ourselves Mountain D ew, until we got a letter f rom the soft drink company. S o we became Mountain B rew. Andy Burr grew up in the O zark foothills of north A rkansas in the 1960s, playi ng rural folk music as well a s Bob Dylan, the Beatles and Rolling Stones. The place Im from, Mountain View, is now known as the folk music capitol of the world. I didnt really appreciate what I grew up with until I left home, he muses. Isnt that how it goes? Burr rediscovered his musical roots when he married Sara Gillen, a mandolin player whose musical passion was old-time music. Old-time is the popular dance music of the 19th century, he says. Theyre lively tunes, kind of like square dance music, or the songs you might hear a piano player playing in the saloon of a cowboy movie. Sara knows and can play a load of those melodies, so we combined her old-time tunes with my folk and rock and came up with our peculiar brew. The Burrs also started drawing more from Saras roots, adding Irish and Celtic standards to their repertoire. Mountain Brew is most often a duo, with Sara on mandolin, Andy on guitar and harmonica and both contributing to vocals. For their concert here at the Hammock, they will be joined by Renee Riddle, a talented fiddle player from Bowling Green. Its always a pleasure for us to have Renee join in since she is a great performer and has accompanied us on several songs on our album, says Andy. The concert will start at 7 p.m. Saturday outdoors in the parks picnic area. Bring lawn chairs or blankets and a flash light. Picnic baskets or coolers are welcome and the Hammock Inn will be open serving refreshments. Concert admission is just $5 per person and accompanied kids age 12 and under are admitted free of charge.

Highlands Art League prepares for annual Wine Tasting Event Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Tanglewood Actors Guild will perform two very funny one-act plays in the Tanglewood Clubhouse on Dec. 8, 9 and 10. The plays, Laundry & Bourbon and Lone Star, written by James McLure, are both set in Texas. In addition to the plays, the guild will serve a delicious, home cooked, Texas style meal at 6 p.m. each evening. Laundry & Bourbon is set on the front porch of Roy and Elizabeths home in Maynard, Texas. Elizabeth and her friend, Hattie, are whiling away the time folding laundry, sipping bourbon and Coke and gossiping about the many secrets which are so much a part of small-town life. They are joined by Amy-Lee who cant resist blurting out that Roy has been seen around town with another woman. While the conversation is increasingly edged with bitter humour, from it emerges a sense of Elizabeths inner strength and her quiet understanding of the turmoil which has beset her husband since his return from Vietnam. He is wild and he is unfaithful, but he needs her and she loves him. And shell be waiting for him when he comes home, despite what the ot hers think. Lone Star takes pla ce in the cluttered back yard of a small town Texas ba r. Roy, a brawny macho ty pe who had once been a loc al high school hero, is back in town after a hitch in Vietnam and is trying to r eestablish his place in t he community. Joined by h is younger brother Ray (wh o worships him), Roy se ts about consuming a case of beer while regaling Ro y with tales of his milita ry and amorous exploit s. Apparently, Roy cherish es three things above all: h is country, his sexy wife an d his 1959 pink Thunderbir d. With the arrival of Clet is, the newlywed son of t he local hardware store owne r, Roys world begins to co llapse as it gradually com es out that Ray had slept wi th his brothers wife durin g his absence and has ju st demolished his cherish ed Thunderbird. Tickets are just $12.5 0 for dinner and two play s. Reserved seats can be pu rchased at the Tanglewoo d Clubhouse (a half mi le north of Wal-Mart acro ss from Denny's) betwe en 9:30 and 10 a.m. Monda ys or from 3-4 p.m. Thursda ys starting this week.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLooking to close out their season on a winning note, Lake Placid was on the road in Englewood Friday and made an inspired late run. But the Dragons were victimized by a big second quarter and a monster rushing night in the 29-21 loss to Lemon Bay. Senior running back Andrew Schulte found enough holes in the Dragon D to the tune of a 321yard rushing night, the Manta Rays put up 17 points in the second quarter and held off a furious Lake Placid (3-8) rally in the second half for the win. The Rays (3-7) got on the board first, scoring the opening touchdown but not converting the extra point for a 6-0 lead. ADragon fumble on their first series gave the ball back to Lemon Bay in prime scoring position. The defense held this time, however, forcing the Rays to settle for a field goal and a 9-0 advantage. Along drive, culminating in an A.J. Gayle touchdown run cut the margin to 9-7, but Schulte broke off a long run for a score to make it 17-7 with the two-point conversion. The fleet-footed Schulte would pull the feat off again before halftime, making it a 237 lead at the break. But a bound and determined Dragon squad came out of the half and began to mount their comeback. Lake Placid systematically marched the ball the length of the field and Gayle bulled in again for the score, though the extra point failed, to make it 23-13. Schulte provided one more thorn in the Dragons side, however. Pinned deep in their own territory, Schulte took the pitch on a sweep, made a couple of evasive moves and was off to the races on a 96-yard run and a 29-1 3 lead. Not about to back dow n and fold up the tents, La ke Placid again started a march, though time w as starting to run short. Quarterback Kirk Vel ey then sent a screen pass o ut to Gayle in the flat at t he Rays 40 and the powerf ul freshman didnt stop un til he was in the end zone. The Dragons made goo d on the two-point conve rsion, but with less than o ne minute to play the ensuin g onside kick was recover ed by Lemon Bay and a coup le of kneel-downs finished it off. Perhaps a disappointin g finish to end what was a tough season for head coa ch Jason Holden and h is Dragons. But it did show t he resolve of a team th at worked hard all year lon g, never threw in the tow el and continued fighting rig ht up until the end. By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK With nothi ng on the line but bragging r ights for either team, S ebring was able to overpowe r Avon Park 34-0 at Joe F ranza Stadium Friday night t o close out the regular seas on. This is not what I expecte d, said Red Devil head c oach Andy Bonjokian after t he defeat. Sebring came to p lay ball, and we just could n ot get things done. Hats off t o them, they got it done and w e didnt. The Blue Streaks controlled the offensive game from the onset when quarterback Matt Grubb connected w ith Devin Clarke within the f irst four minutes from 24 y ards out for their first touchd own. Sebrings Donovan White w ould cap the first quarter j ust five minutes later with a 2 1-yard field goal. White would strike again i n the first two minutes of the s econd, this time from 35 y ards out. Grubb would hit Clarke l ate in the half from the 20, a nd a Grubb to Jacob Bryan c onversion for 2-points w ould cap the half at 20-0 S ebring. Sebring picked-off Avon P arks Ryan Dick to set up a nother Grubb pass, this time t o tight end Zack Bullock f rom 29-yards, and Whites k ick for the point after was g ood. Grubb would connect to C larke again with 6:40 left in t he fourth from six-yards out, a nd Whites PATwas good f or the game-winning, 34-0 s core. Our offense got the job d one, said Sebrings head c oach Jared Hamlin. We m issed a lot of opportunities, e specially in the third quart er, but I am proud of the way w e kept fighting. We put e nough points on the board to w in the game, even though we had some sloppiness. This is an exciting win. I think our whole defense stood out tonight, he continued. We shut down their big guy and controlled the middle, showing we could stop the run. This is a big rivalry and you are never sure what is going to happen in these games. As a group, we did what we needed to do to win. And so the 2010 regular season comes to an end, with both Sebring and Avon Park coming up one game short of making the playoffs. While the Red Devils pack their gear away for the year and reflect on a gritty, neversay-die season, Sebring will don the pads one more time. The Blue Streaks will travel to Poinciana Thursday for a postseason Bowl Game against Atlantic High School at 7 p.m. to close out the year. By KATE ROWLAND Special to the News-SunSEBRING Nina Mercure may not have fired the shot heard round the world, but she did fire the shot that scored the first goal of the year for the Blue Streaks girls varsity soccer team. Mercures penalty-shot goal with less than a minute to go in Thursdays 4-1 loss to Osceola kept the Blue Streaks from opening their season with two consecutive shut-out losses. The perfectly placed corner shot was also the Sebring seniors first-ever goal of her high school soccer career. The first two games of Sebrings season were canceled due to bad weather before Winter Haven defeated the Blue Streaks 8-0 on Tuesday. Coming into the game with Osceola, first-year varsity coach Paul Brown didnt know much about the Kowboys. We had no idea, he said. All we knew is that No. 6 was fast and that she was good. It seemed like we were down four goals in the first 15 minutes. Then we woke up. Osceola (3-1-0) was more talented than Brown suspected, he said. No. 6, junior Leah Mullins, scored two goals, and junior Kierstin Martinez added two of her own putting Sebring in a 40 hole by the 30-minute mark. We were surprised, but the pace on that girl was unbelievable, Brown said. Theres a speed limit on our field slow. She was the mainstay of their team and she ripped us apart in the early going, but SPORTS D SECTION Inside This Section Tubbs season ends . . .3D Girls Basketball . . .3D State Football Scores . . .4D Love posts 30-30 . . .4D News-Sun Sunday, November 14, 2010 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Coached by Jennifer McClelland and Erin Leone, the Flag Blue Streak cheerleaderrs came in second place at the MFFCC 2010 Cheer-Off competition last weekend in Lakeland.

And though she had an impressive, top-third finish, it wasnt quite enough to get her to state. The Estero Community Park course was very challenging, Blue Streak head coach Krista Fredrikson said. Some hills, lots of sharp turns and even some loose sand. It started faster than expected but Taylor pushed hard. I think this was the hardest I saw her work in a race all season. The sophomore made strides through the pack and came in with a strong finishing time of 21:28, amid a grouping all within a few seconds of one another, for 21st place in the 87-runner field. Taylor has such a great season and it was hard to see it come to an end, Fredrikson said. But it was a great learning experience and Im already looking forward to next season and hoping to qualify even mo re runners. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIn closing out their respect ive preseason tournaments, A von Park rolled to itsseco nd straight win while S ebring put up a good fight in a loss Thursday night. The Lady Red Devils, after s truggling to score early, e nded the first quarter with a m ere 5-3 lead over the Lady B loodhounds of Auburndale. But Avon Park pulled away a fter that, using its stifling, q uick-handed defense for s coring opportunities in the 5 0-29 win. Favianette Cotte paced the L ady Devils with 14 points w hile Johntavia Perry added 1 0. Facing an athletic and e xperienced Bartow squad, S ebring was somewhat e xpecting a long night for its r elatively inexperienced s quad something head c oach Mike Lee was somew hat looking forward to. I hope they press us, Lee h ad said after Tuesdays win o ver Lake Region. We need t o get that sort of game exper ience. They got the experience, f or sure, as the Lady Yellow J ackets took off early and t hreatened to run away with i t. But though they never q uite challenged Bartow, the L ady Streaks hung in there a nd had the deficit in single d igits by the end in the 42-33 loss. Shannon Williams lead the way offensively with 14 points and Allie Mann chipped in nine. With a couple of preseason games now under their belts, Avon Park and Sebring will kick off the regular season with a cross-county contest Monday with the Streaks visiting the Red Devils at 7:30 p.m. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, November 14, 2010Page 3D 6 MONTH MEMBERSHIPS NOW AVAILABLE(863) 382-0500 3201 Golfview Rd.

Avon Park453-CART (2278) after that we settled down and put two defenders on her. That slowed her down a bit. After playing most of the first half in its own end, Sebring put together an offense and went after the Osceola goal. We hung in there and got better in the second half, Brown said. I think it was a pretty even game in the second. The first half was a little bit up in the air, but we woke up at halftime. With less than a minute remaining in the game, officials called a foul on Osceola for deliberately handling the ball in the penalty box. Sebring was awarded a penalty kick. Coach Brown had his pick of players to take the shot, but he didnt take long to make his decision. As soon as the call was made, I said Its Nina-time, Brown said. I had every confidence in her. She did good. The Blue Streaks and Kowboys lined up in a tight row behind the penalty line. The ball was placed on the penalty mark, 12 yards in front of the center of the goal. Mercure faced down Osceolas keeper, a formidable opponent even though PK rules state that the goalkeeper cannot stray from the goal line until the ball has been kicked. When I took the shot, I was thinking about my dad, Mercure said. Hes always telling me, Youve got this! Youve got this!It never happens, but he still has faith in me. So thats who I was thinking of tonight. Mercure took the shot, a beautiful hook to the outsi de corner, but the Kowboy goa lkeeper dove to her left, gettin g her fingers on the ball. I thought, how did she g et a hand on that shot? Mercu re said. How tall was that girl ? But the ball tipped off t he goalkeepers fingers an d streaked into the far side of the net as Mercures team mates erupted in cheers. I called the score at ha lftime, Mercure said. I to ld coach it was going to be 4 to 1. Im proud of my team , she added. We shou ld improve from now. The Blue Streaks (0-20) traveled to Kissimmee Frid ay to battle the Poinciana Eagle s.

Im going for 30 tonight, Love said. With Love having only seven points at the time, Beasley looked at him and said, Thirty what? Incredibly, Love was talking about rebounds. But he didnt stop there. Love grabbed a franchiserecord 31 rebounds and scored 31 points, the NBAs first 3030 game in 28 years, and the Minnesota Timberwolves rallied from a 21-point thirdquarter deficit to stun the New York Knicks 112-103 on Friday night. I just got a good mindset that every single one was mine, said Love, who had 23 points and 24 rebounds in a loss to the Lakers on Tuesday. Love grabbed 15 boards in the third quarter alone to will the Timberwolves to victory. Moses Malone was the last player to do it with 38 points and 32 rebounds for Houston against Seattle in 1982. It seemed like no matter what anybody did I was going to go and get those rebounds. I dont know what to tell you, Love said sheepishly. I impressed myself. I dont even know what to say to be honest with you. Beasley had 35 points and six rebounds for the Wolves, who were carried to their second victory in a row by the two players who are being advertised as the building blocks of the latest rebuilding project. Thirty years from now I can say I was on the floor while history was being made, Beasley said. Its great. And we got the win. Just an amazing thing to watch and be a part of. Danilo Gallinari scored 25 points, but only seven in the second half for the Knicks, who lost their fourth consecutive game and had no answer for Loves dominance in the second half. The Wolves trailed by 21 points early in third quarter when Love took over. He scored 11 points and grabbed 15 of Minnesotas 23 rebounds in the period. Kevin had an incredible game, coach Kurt Rambis said. Those numbers are just stupid. I dont even know what to say. With Amare Stoudemire in foul trouble all game long and Ronny Turiaf out with a sprained left knee, the Knicks were simply overpowered. After shooting 47 percent from 3-point range in the first half, the Knicks were just 3 of 10 from behind the arc and shot 30 percent from the field in the third quarter to let the Wolves back in it. Stoudemire picked up his fourth foul early in the period and attempted just one shot and Love took over underneath in a stunning performance. Minnesota opened the fourth quarter with a 10-0 run, with Corey Brewers 3-pointer giving them a 90-87 lead, completing a 33-9 span bridging the third and fourth periods. Love capped his historic night with a 3-pointer from the top of the key to put him over the 30-point mark and received a standing ovation when he was pulled in the final two minutes. Its amazing, Beasley said. Every rebound came off the guy. Twenty and 20 is one thing. But 30 and 30? The Knicks shot 28 percent in the second half, giving Love ample opportunities to gobble up the misses, and he devoured them like no play er has since Charles Barkl ey grabbed 33 rebounds in 199 6. I dont know what ha ppened, honestly, said Wilso n Chandler, who had 17 poin ts, seven assists and six board s. Just everything just turn ed around. At halftime, Love had ju st six points on 2-for-8 shootin g, a rather lifeless effort that w as overshadowed by Beasley s brilliance. Beasley scored 42 poin ts against Sacramento o n Wednesday night to carry t he Timberwolves to their fir st road victory in 18 games. He had it going right fro m the start on Friday night, sco ring 10 points in the first qua rter to get on a roll. He threw down a soarin g dunk on the fast break ov er Stoudemire in the secon d quarter to bring the crowd to its feet, but the Wolve s perimeter defense couldn t keep up with Raymond Felto n and the quick-shootin g Knicks. With injuries to Jonn y Flynn and Luke Ridnour, t he Timberwolves start ed Sebastian Telfair at poi nt guard and backed him up wi th Sundiata Gaines, a player th ey signed less than 12 hours ea rlier. Felton was 5 of 6, includin g three 3-pointers, and had fi ve assists in the first half, and h is backup Toney Douglas scor ed nine points in 12 minute s, feasting on Minnesotas ove rmatched point men. But Felton was just 1 for 7 the rest of the way and fi nished with 22 points and eig ht assists. Its definitely tough , Stoudemire said. But this ju st goes on my shoulders. I ta ke this loss on me. Once I got in foul trouble, they took adva ntage of that. Love has 30-30 game in Wolves win
