By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING The mobile, half-sized replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial roared into Highlands County on Tuesday, escorted by more than 400 motorcycles in an awe-inspiring parade down U.S. 27. After two days of set up, the "Moving Wal"l will be on display to the public at the Lakeshore Mall from Thursday until Sunday. "It's been a mixed bag of support for this project. Lakeshore Mall, local businesses, military organizations, individuals, and the whole thing has been paid for through donations," said co-organizer Harry Oakley. The wall will be on display to the public 24 hours a day from 10 a.m. Thursday until Sunday, according to Oakley. Special lights, tents and security will on hand to allow visitors the aroundthe-clock viewing. "It is important to let as many see the wall as possible," Oakley said.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING Laughter permeated the room as friends, family and the public watched the swearing in ceremonies of the three new county commissioners on Tuesday. Although Don Elwell, Greg Harris and Jack Richie actually took their oaths on Friday, Tuesday's ceremony officially kicked off their terms of office. The unusual early swearing in action was taken to avoid problems with having a quorum on Tuesday, according to Interim County Administrator Ri ck Helms. Apparently, outgoin g commissioners Chairm an Don Bates and Edg ar Stokes left office at 12 a.m on Nov. 15. Commissioner Gu y Maxcy, who resigned effe ctive Nov. 9 because he w as running for the tax collect or position, set the stage for a possible lack of a quoru m on Tuesday, when t he electees were scheduled to take office. "It has never happened in my term here," Helms sai d. New commissioners sworn in, take seats See NEW, page 8A By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING For 25 years, the Interstate Chapter of American Bikers Aimed Towards Education (ABATE) of Florida has held annual toy runs, collecting unwrapped toys and money donations, to distribute among needy families nominated by churches, schools, social workers, neighbors and friends. From the very beginning, the idea was to provide families with an old-fashioned, athome Christmas. "We never show up Christmas morning," said Cathie Beasley, an organizer and long time volunteer. "We don't want the families to be paraded around. We want the kids to have a Christmas just like other children, waking up in the morning and finding presents under the tree." The chapter also provides each family with the ingredients for a home-cooked Christmas dinner. ABATE revs up for Christmas See ABATE, page 7A By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING There was a large turnout Monday for what the organizers hope will be an annual tradition The Empty Bowls Thanksgiving Luncheon. The event, sponsored by Florida Hospital Heartland Division and catered by Panera Bread, had three goals: Raise awareness about hunger in America; raise money for the Heartland Food Reservoir, which supplies over 20 pantries in the area; and give thanks to the many individuals, businesses and organizations who made the reservoir possible. The Civic Center was full as a crowd of at least 200, including officials and concerned citizens, turned out in support. The list of those who made substantial contributions was long, including a wide variety of groups such as Walmart and the Avon Park Youth Academy; the Heartland Realtors Association and Sunny South Exterminators; Sebring Church of the Brethren and Leadership Highlands; Bagwell Lumber and the Champion for Children Foundation. The good news, said Bill Stephenson, director of the Heartland Food Reservoir Inc., is that donations continue.

"I am hoping that this election is one that we can be happy with a few years from now," Elwell said toward the end of his first meeting as a member of the board on Tuesday. "I am having a very surreal feeling being up here. In the past I was the one throwing spitballs and rotten tomatoes, but now I am the target of those spitballs and tomatoes," Elwell began. Elwell asked the commission to look at movin g forward on specific item s immediately, and asked f or the county staff to loo k closely at the county we bsite concerning volunteer s. "I tried to work with t he county website in the vo lunteer section, but h ad some trouble getting t he information," Elwell said "It is not current," co nfirmed Commissioner Ja ck Richie. "Maybe something w e can highlight off of t he main website is the volu nteer page," Elwell said. "We will evaluate it immediately," said Interi m County Administrator Ri ck Helms.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING After a long and often grueling season, Heartland Idol 2010 came to a melodic conclusion Saturday night as six finalists held nothing back. Shannon Marrero, 33, of Sebring was selected Heartland Idol 2010. Her second selection, "God Bless America" brought the audience to its feet screaming approval. Lindsey Sears was awarded second place and Ashley Elder took third. Each contestant had to sing two songs, one made famous by the American Idol television show and another of their own choice. Jim McCollum one of Idol's greatest supporters, whose sudden death was the heartbreak of the season would have been proud, his friends say, of the quality of the finale. What might have surprised him, but tickled him at the same time, was the friendly battle between the audience and the judges Saturday night. Where the judges maintained their standards and let contestants know where they needed to work harder, the audience was in a mood to celebrate and over look details like pitch or breath control. For example, when Sears wowed the crowd with a lively rendition of "Cowboy Casanova," and judge Melanie Boulay, after complimenting Sears'voice, told her to pay attention to breath control, the crowd burst into loud boos. The booing was even louder and more sustained following Amanda Mercer's performance of "Jesus Take the Wheel," when judge Larry Moore described her performance as mediocre. Other judges explained to Mercer that Moore's comments were a compliment. Judge Mike Henry said it this way, "We know what you can do" and expect more from you. Moore said to the audience, "Whoever wins tonight is representing Highlands County, all of us." That didn't keep the audience from booing yet again when contestant Elder was told by Moore, "I think you did a great job, you came to win it, but, you didn't nail it." For those without trained ears, every contestant delighted the women with large voices that raise tingly hairs of awe on one's arms. Samantha Berry, for example, belted out a great rendition of "Don't Rain on My Parade," that had the audience whistling and stamping its feet. The sole male, Manny Concepcion, was lower key but showed range with the country style "To Make You Feel My Love" and the urban "Kryptonite," pleasing the audience as well.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK First Lieutenant Edward (Ted) Logan passed through Avon Park Air Force Range in the summer of 1944 receiving combat training prior to being sent to Europe as part of the 483rd Bomb Group. Arriving in Italy, he flew his first combat mission on Oct. 10, 1944. Receiving his pilot wings and second lieutenant bars on March 12, 1944 at Valdosta, Ga., Logan flew 34 missions over central Europe before being shot down over Graz, Austria. His 10-man crew were able to parachute to safety only to be rescued by Slovenian partisans and eventually returning to their bombing group. Logan flew his final mission on March 25, 1944, leading the Fifth Wing. Logan will be guest speaker at the local Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) luncheon on Saturday at the Avon Park Air Force Range Dining Hall. He will tell of his World War II experiences as well as his 40-plus years as a commercial pilot. Flying in Central and South America after World War II, he accumulated more than 25,000 hours as a commercial pilot. The luncheon meeting will be held at the Avon Park Air Force Range Dining Hall and start promptly at noon. "We believe that Ted Logan's military and civilian career of more than 40 years will be of interest to all," said retired Col. Roy Whitton, MOAAchapter president.

Empty Bowls Luncheon feeds crowd Special to the News-SunSEBRING Sheriff S usan Benton would like to i nform the public about f raudulent credit and debit c ard activity in the area. O ver the past several weeks a number of Highlands C ounty residents have b ecome the victims of credi t card cloning. Cloning is t he use of legitimate credit o r debit card numbers to c reate fraudulent cards w hich are then used to run u p significant charges or d ebit the unsuspecting o wner's account. The Sheriff's Office has r eceived reports of victims' c redit and debit cards being u sed out of Highlands C ounty while the owners of t hese cards have not left t own and still have possess ion of their original legitim ate card. Residents are urged to t ake the following precaut ions regarding the use of credit and debit cards, especially during the holiday season: Be aware of your surroundings when using ATM machines, particularly when you are asked for your P.I.N. number. If someone is close by they may be able to pick up this number by watching you enter it in the machine. You may want to turn away or take some action to conceal your entry. Pay attention to the units used to scan your credit card. If there appears to be any device attached to the terminal, you may consider asking the clerk to manually enter your credit card number into the system. Try not to let your credit or debit card be taken out of your possession to be scanned. This often occurs in restaurants or other places where the point of sale is not the same as where the service is delivered. When possible, accompany the sales person to the register and keep your card in your possession. Some financial institutions offer notifications when debit cards are used. You may want to take advantage of this service so you will be immediately aware if your card is used without your authorization. Take the time to carefully review bank and credit card statements, especially if they are accessible online. Follow up on any questionable activity with the appropriate merchant or financial institution immediately. Anyone with information about fraudulent credit or debit card activity, or information on possible suspects, is asked to contact the Highlands County Sheriff's Office at 402-7200, or your local law enforcement agency.

When taking the oath of o ffice these three officials, s elected and elected officials, a ssumed a solemn duty as s tewards of Highlands C ounty's public resources. The public must trust that i ts government will spend t axpayer dollars in a way that i s responsible, efficient and, a bove all, open to the light of d ay. That is not as easy as it s ounds. Sometimes it may be easier t o gloss over the facts, whitew ash the problems, or just s ay "maybe we should not m ention that." Those three face unemp loyment rates that are highe r than any in remembered h istory in this county, a housi ng market and local econom y that is broke and a budget t hat is close to over extendi ng itself. With little or no c ontingency left for a rainy d ay. They also face the hard d ecisions of how to get the n eeded revenue to insure that t he core services required to k eep the county functioning, and ensuring that those core services are the main focus of their tenure. These are hard times, and it calls for hard decisions. With those decisions, many faces are turned to those three to make Highlands County better by their motions and votes. Faces written with the lines of foreclosure, of pain for not being able to provide, of single mothers, and fathers, but still faces with some hope. To make those decisions, these three, along with those already there, must put away the parties that put them there. They must turn away from the compromise and desire to serve just the affluent, and set their feet to defend the entire makeup of citizens that fill the house that is Highlands County. They must stand. It will be hard to do that, and it will be interesting to see if these new servants of the public can achieve those lofty goals. We are hopeful, we are watching and we are expecting more than ever before from our elected officials. Especially these three. All they have to do is to realize that a "public office is a public trust." That's the foundation for their decisions, not "how does this look." Public office is a public trust There are a few simple things we need to remember. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The more power, we allow the federal government to take, the more corruption there will be. This is because when the government insists on taxing and regulating everything, those who will be most affected want tax breaks and the regulations to favor them, so they spend millions on lobbyists who offer campaign contributions to Congressmen on both sides of the aisle. They even write the legislation and give it to Congressmen. The Congressmen listen to these special interest groups because they know on which side their bread is buttered. The Congressmen earmark funds to go to projects which their contributors favor. If the federal government stops the earmarks and keeps regulations to the minimum, the special interests will have no reason to spend millions of lobbyists and they will keep the money to invest in expanding business. What you reward you get more of, what you punish you get less of. If we reward failed enterprises, failed government programs, and overspending state governments with bailouts, we will get more failed enterprises, government programs, and overspending state government. In private businesses, if a product fails to sell, it is discontinued. If a government project fails, it is given more money. Big government increases crime. When the government gives away money, it attracts thieves and scam artists. Waste and fraud are inevitable. The only way to stop them is to turn off the tap. Government programs are like vampires they suck our blood and live forever. However, they shrivel up in the sunlight. Since Congress is incapable of discretion, we need to drive a stake through the heart of every piece of discretionary spending by ending them all, and then decided which are absolutely necessary. How can we decide what programs are absolutely necessary? Simple, responsibility belongs at the lowest level possible: first the family, then private institutions and businesses, then local government, followed by state government, the federal government, and last and hopefully least international agencies. The federal government should do only those things which state governments individually cannot do. That is what the Constitution envisioned. For example, we don't need a federal Department of Education. The country got along without one for 200 years and everyone agrees that since the Department of Education was established, the achievement of American students has deteriorated. Every state has a Department of Education and every locality has its own Board of Education. We need to sunset all research grants. Every year watchdog groups publish lists of the most absurd grants, and everyone is shocked at the amount of money wasted on studies of dubious value, but the next year there are more studies and more wasted money. If a study is really important, someone will do it a university, a non-governmenta l organization, a foundation, a business. If none of these a re willing to fund it, it probab ly doesn't need to be done. Democrats constantly use scare tactics. They point to a problem and then try to make people believe that if the federal government doe sn't immediately intervene, the problem cannot be solved. History shows us that in most cases when the federal government gets involved the problem gets worse. Big government isn't the solution, it is the problem.

Primal Feelings' a wonderful event E ditor: It is emotionally hard to go to A von Park Youth Academy (APYA) a nd see these boys from 14-17. It b rings out the mother in you. On Saturday, Nov. 5 at 1:30 p .m.,"Primal Feelings", a six-stud ent percussion ensemble gave t heir debut performance to about 2 00 fellow students and staff of A PYA. This concert marked the c ulmination of a 12-week P ercussion Education Program for T roubled Teens presented by P rimal Connection and funded, in l arge part, by a grant from H eartland for Children. The program is designed to d evelop teamwork, build self e steem and teach the joy of making m usic to young first time offende rs. The program also acts as a crea tive outlet, as well as a construct ive way to release stress and a nger. Two Primal Connection f acilitators/instructors, Fred Leavitt a nd Idris El, guide the children t hrough the process of acquiring p ercussion playing skills, ensemble p laying techniques and the import ance of teamwork to reach a comm on goal. Over a three-month perio d the group is gradually empowe red to take responsibilities from n aming themselves and designing t heir T-shirts to creating and perf orming original percussion a rrangements. This group seemed particularly c omfortably with each other. This w as not the case when they started t he program. After talking to each o ne of them, I concluded that they m ade friendships here that were positive. The creativity part they said meant a lot to them as they learned to express their selves through the music. Learning to work as a team is part of the program and this particular group has learned that lesson well. All of the boys in the ensemble came from a one-parent home. They lacked a male role model and direction in their lives. The children were developing a failure syndrome with attendant low-self esteem. This can lead to antisocial behavior and a costly waste of human potential. The Primal Connection program has been effective in reaching and turning around children who are on the path of self destruction. They experience success and the power of teamwork. To listen to the music they made in concert is to realize that they are good kids that have a lot to offer. And then, when they were called to encore, their pride in accomplishment was not only evident but contagious. They knew they did well and more importantly they learned they could succeed. At the end the team loaded up the instruments and they all signed Fred's and Idris's "Primal Feeling" T-shirts. Then ate pizza and shared how they felt about the drum program. I believe that his group of teens really learned to apply all the different educational modalities of the program. Some that have the money will buy a drum when they leave and attend drum circles in their area. Everyone involved was extremely disappointed that Fred could not continue to teach as the grant monies ran out. Fred would like to teach three classes a year for nine months. If you would like to contribute to the Primal programs at the Academy, Fred Leavitt and Pete Zeegers, Facilities manager at Avon Park Youth Academy, would be very grateful. Contact information is Fred at (863) 4028238 or Fred@primalconnection.org. I love these kids. What a joyous thing to see happen. Gail Leavitt SebringA message to the voters Editor: I arrived in Highlands County back in late September of 2002. For more than eight years, I have been nothing short of amazed at the hospitality, the incredible friendliness of our county's residents, and that intangible feeling of being "home". In short, I truly love the county in which I live. On Election Night, I stood with my wife Sheri in the Supervisor of Elections office as we nervously awaited the results of our county commission race. For months, I'd received so much support, so much encouragement from hundreds of friends and neighbors. It is your energy, your positive spirit that fueled my passion to try and take my involvement in the community to a much higher level. When the final results were printed out and handed to me, I couldn't form words. I simply pointed at the numbers and hugged my wife really, really hard. Over 20,000 friends, neighbors and residents of Highlands County thought that I was the best choice to lead our county through some of the most difficult times we've ever seen. The results were both aweinspiring and sobering, as the full weight of the trust being put in me hit me like a sledgehammer. I will do my best to never forget the waves of support, the honks and "thumbs-up", and the thousands of people who embraced my message of "representing the people who put you into the office to begin with" ... in every decision, every day. As I stated during the campaign, everyone will not agree with me 100 percent of the time. However, everyone will know with 100 percent certainty that my vote was based on research, knowledge and input from my constituents and placed with the best interests of the people of Highlands County in the forefront of my mind. That simple guiding philosophy, coupled with enhanced emphasis on communication, transparency and accountability, will be the foundation of my tenure as Highlands County commissioner. I applaud and congratulate my opponent, Chester Dishong Downing, for displaying true class every day of the campaign. I have nothing but respect for his many years of service to our county's children, and I look forward to working together with him and all of the residents of Highlands County as we move our county forward together. I look for input from every party, every community and every citizen, as we think of ways together to best serve our citizens and keep our quality of life as high as poss ible. The next few years will be challenging, but I eagerly look fo rward to putting in the work and time needed to becoming an effec tive elected representative of the people that I can. I am extraordinarily grateful to our county's vot ers, and promise to do my absolut e best to make each of you very proud of your selection last week Thank you again so very much. Don Elwe ll Highlands Coun ty Commissioner-Ele ct District 2 Ryan Drury will be missedEditor: Dear family, friends, and all tha t knew or knew of of precious Ryan Michael Drury, words cannot express our gratitude for all of your love and support during our time of grief. Ryan was blessed to have so many wonderful people in his life. Thank you for being his friend. His life touched many and the world is a better place because of him.

Page 6ANews-SunWednesday, Novmeber 17, 2010www.newssun.com By MARC LEVY Associated PressHARRISBURG, Pa. David G rove was a member of the "thin g reen line" one of the wildlife o fficers who work mostly alone, o ften in forests, at night, in the c old and in close range of people w ho almost always are carrying g uns. Police say the 31-year-old ward en was apprehending an armed p oacher last week in the kind of e ncounter that he and his coll eagues often worry about the k ind he had recently written a news a rticle about, after a young suspect e scaped but later turned himself in. "I hope Justin will learn from his e ncounters with me and realize that b reaking game laws and poaching w ill never do anything good for h im in his life," Grove wrote in the N ovember issue of Pennsylvania G ame News. Thursday night, Grove caught a f elon poaching deer with a spotl ight near Gettysburg, pulled him o ver and was shot four times, p olice said. He was the first P ennsylvania game warden killed i n the line of duty in 95 years, but t he occupation remains hazardous b y its very nature. The North American Wildlife E nforcement Officers Association s ays about 70 wildlife officers in t he United States have died in the l ine of duty since 1980, more than a dozen of them from accidental or m alicious killings. "Everybody we deal with has a f irearm," said Richard Cramer, the a ssociation's vice president and a l and management supervisor for t he Pennsylvania Game C ommission. Often, game wardens a re "encountering folks out to i ntentionally break the law with f irearms." In 2007, Texas game warden J ustin Hurst, 34, was fatally shot w ith an assault rifle while pursuing a man suspected of illegally hunti ng from the road. In 2002, Alabama game warden J immy Hutto was shot while assisti ng drug task forces investigating a methamphetamine operation and died weeks later. This past February, the killer of Florida wildlife officer Margaret "Peggy" Park in 1984 was executed. Park was shot with her own gun by a burglar on probation as she patrolled a wooded area. In March, a 37-year-old federal wildlife officer, Chris Upton, was shot and killed when a Georgia hunter mistook him for a coyote. For much of the year, a wildlife officer deals with complaints about nuisance animals including bears, raccoons and skunks. In the fall hunting season, the work changes to monitoring for illegal hunting. "You would run into people who were drunk, out hunting, trying to spotlight a deer, or on drugs," said Bill Bower, a former Pennsylvania wildlife conservation officer who retired in 2002 after 35 years in Bradford County, in the rural north-central part of the state. "So it's always in the back of your mind that this could get dangerous." Backup could be an hour or more away, and in some cases meant getting out of bed in the middle of the night when a farmer called to say he'd seen someone hunting illegally, Bower recalled. "I'd jump up and take off, with my wife saying, "Be careful, be careful,"'said Bower, 71. In Grove's case, he called in the license plate number of the suspect, Christopher L. Johnson, before the shooting, police said. That gave them a critical piece of information. Authorities say Grove had Johnson, 27, partially handcuffed before the shooting. The suspect told police he fled with the handcuffs locked on his left wrist and shot them off himself, according t o a police affidavit. He was arrested the next day at a hunting camp. In an interview over the weekend with The Associated Press, Grove's older brother reflected on the intertwined fate of his family with the suspect's. "I don't know him from Adam, but he's a part of our life now and will be forever," said Chad Grove of Martinsburg, W.Va. "But honestly, I don't think about him very much. I think mor e about my brother, and you pull ou t the pictures and look at the good times and the fish we caught and the turkeys we killed and the deer we shot. You hold on to what you have." In his article for Game News, Grove wrote about heading out fo r night surveillance duty with Joe, an applicant to become a deputy gam e warden. They saw the flash of a spotligh t about a mile away and heard the report of a large-caliber rifle. The y drove toward the sound, soon surprising two men in a sports car. "The driver's first words were, We didn't shoot,"'Grove wrote. "I again asked for the gun and spotlight, and the driver just looked at me with a blank stare an d then put the car into reverse." Though Justin escaped and late r turned himself in, Grove noted th at he stumbled onto the same duo later that deer season hunting illegally. Most hunters Bower dealt with were gentlemen, he said. Other times, they would swear at or threaten him. "Things like that back 20 years ago wouldn't mean much," Bowe r said, "but today if you told a poli ce officer that, you might have a big problem."

"Stuffed animals look g ood on a motorcycle, but t hey don't do much for kids," B easley said. She recomm ends looking for something m ore interactive. The children range in age from infants to teenagers. Chapter president Tom Higgins said the line-up begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 4, at the Blue Crab Restaurant, 825 N. Ridgewood Drive in Sebring. The police-escorted run will begin promptly at 1 p.m. The ride heads north, Higgins said, up U.S. 17, to Avon Park, where it will run west on Main Street to U.S. 27. Then it heads south to Lake Placid and Interlake Boulevard, to Devane Circle, around it and back up U.S. 27 to Sebring's Historic Circle, around it, to finish up at the Elks Club at 2618 Kenilworth Blvd. where a complete turkey dinner will be waiting. Alive auction and a 50/50 drawing adds to the excitement. All it takes to join the ride for this worthy cause, and get a meal, is $10 and an unwrapped toy. Of course, ABATE will happily accept all donations, even from people who don't care to ride. There is still time to nominate a worthy family for this program. Names are being taken through Monday.

Elwell took the first turn in front of the podium, and was sworn in by the Honorable Judge Peter Estrada from the 10th Judicial Circuit. Jack Richie was second, and he chose Highlands County Clerk of Courts Bob Germaine to offer him the oath of office. Finally, Greg Harris took the oath from his father-inlaw, the Honorable Judge Robert E. Beach. After the ceremony, the first action of the new board was to elect Jeff Carlson to the Chairman of the Board and Commissioner Barbara Stewart as the vice-chair.

New commissioners take seats on board The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN Associated PressST. PETERSBURG The A merican Civil Liberties U nion and several other m edia and First Amendment g roups sent letters to the F lorida's chief justice and a nother judge, urging them to e nsure foreclosure proceedi ngs remain open to the publ ic and the media. In letters sent Friday to C hief Justice Charles Canady o f the Florida Supreme Court a nd Chief Judge Donald M oran of Florida's Fourth J udicial Circuit, the ACLU c ites a "troubling pattern of f oreclosure courts operating b ehind closed doors." "Our organizations have r eceived numerous reports t hat extraordinary barriers to access are preventing members of the general public, as well as representatives of the news media, from observing foreclosure proceedings in judicial circuits around the state," the ACLU wrote to Judge Canady. "We believe these barriers undercut the transparency of the judicial process; they also violate the strong presumption of open access to judicial proceedings under Florida law." Foreclosure hearings in Florida courts are supposed to be open. In response to the ACLU letter, Canady said he is "deeply concerned" about the allegations and directed the Office of the State Courts Administrator to recommend corrective actions. ACLU wants state's foreclosure hearings to remain public have at least one county commission meeting to be held in the evening, around 6 p.m., so that people who work during the day can be there. "I think we can think about it and get some guidance from Rickey (Helms)," said Commissioner Barbara Stewart. "But it's always worth trying." "I would like to use that fourth one, if the agenda is light, for the departments to come in and update us, or using it for the TDC (Tourist Development Council) come in and give us an update. I just really think that if we are here to be commissioners, it would be really great to be here four Tuesdays," Elwell said. Elwell also asked to set a date about how best to staff a position of county attorney. "I would like to set a date on how best to staff the position of county attorney for Highlands County," Elwell added. "I would like to take a look at what other counties are doing and have a discussion on if we need to stay the way we are right now, or possibly a staff attorney or some sort of hybrid. This is not some sort of finger-pointing issue, but I want to discuss how best to serve Highlands County on this issue," said Elwell. "There are a bunch of groups that have brought it up, and it came up during the campaign. It is time to begin that process." Elwell also asked for a goal setting worksho p where the commissio n could voice what their p riorities are, and what thin gs they could see over the ne xt 12 months. "It doesn't have to be anything real formal, but at least a workshop where w e can say OK, these a re things we need to be mo ving on, and these are t he things that are best for t he county'and do that in t he next 30 days or so," Elwe ll said. Newly appointed chai rman Jeff Carlson agre ed with Elwell's requests, an d promised to schedule a workshop in the near futu re to address Elwell's points Continued from page 1A Elwell wants to take look at county attorney position This is not some sort of fingerpointing issue, but I want to discuss how best to serve Highlands County on this issue.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING After a strong o pening win against district f oe Winter Haven last T uesday, the Sebring s occer squad had taken a tough, 2-1 loss at C lewiston Thursday. Back into the D istrict 5-5Aschedule M onday, the Streaks g ot back to their winn ing way, shutting out Lake W ales by a 3-0 score. "It was a tough one T hursday, but it was competitive and we were right there," first year varsity coach Keith Bowyer said before the Monday night match. "The thing with team sports is, the individual has to let go of his ego and see it more in the team mindset. This is a good group of kids who really do look at it like that." And Monday's win was a good indication of that as the scores came from three different players, showing the balance and numerous weapons that Sebring has. At the 10-minute mark, it was Elisha Klatt booting one in for a 1-0 Blue Streak lead. David Scheck then got into the scoring mix in the 27th minute to carry Sebring into the intermission with the two-goal lead. Afree kick in the second half from Derreck Drummond finished up the scoring on the night. Goalkeeper Ethan Smith, though not overly busy behind the strong and scrambling Blue Streak defense, picked up five saves on the night to preserve the shutout and move Sebring to a 2-1 record on the season and 2-0 in district play. "I'm actually very excited about the way the team is playing," Bowyer said. I've loosened up the system of play this year,with instructions to make more circulating runs, allowing for a more By STEVEN WINE Associated PressDAVIE Playing for the f irst time this season, Chad P ennington was so reluctant t o leave the field that he a sked a teammate to pop his i njured right shoulder back i nto place. After being hurt on the M iami Dolphins'first play, P ennington extended his r ight arm toward running b ack Ronnie Brown. "He's in the huddle and he s aid, Pull it,'" Brown said. I'm scared. I don't want to p ull it too hard I'll mess it u p. I gave a small tug." The emergency procedure f ailed to help. Pennington came out of the g ame, and now his season is o ver and perhaps even his c areer. Pennington was placed on r eserve-injured Monday, part o f the fallout from a quarterb ack calamity in Sunday's v ictory over Tennessee. Chad Henne was also hurt b ut might be available for T hursday night's game a gainst the Chicago Bears, c oach Tony Sparano said. Third-string quarterback T yler Thigpen is the most l ikely starter against the B ears after closing out the By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVONPARK As would be expected, it was a rowdy atmosphere as the Lady Blue Streaks stepped onto Avon Park's court for Monday's match-up with the Lady Devils. And it was a good team effort, along with a one-sided second quarter, that propelled Avon Park to a 57-42 win. But even with the win, it was after all, the opening game of the regular season, with the respective coaches noticing more what needs to be worked on. "It's always fun to play against Sebring," Lady Devil head coach Paulette Daley said. "It's a rival game and they always show where we need room f or improvement." Sebring head coach Mi ke Lee was viewing it from a similar angl e. "It's good for us to face a good tea m like Avon Park," he said. "They're an aggressive, stron g team that's going to come after you an d point out yo ur flaws." There didn't seem to be too many on either si de early on, as the fever ed pitch from the stands ca rried onto the court as t he two teams went back an d forth during the openin g eight minutes.

www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 17, 2010Page 3B By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week AVONDALE, Ariz. „ Predictably, Hamlin defended his crew chief, Mike Ford, for controversial remarks after Hamlins win on Nov. 7 at Texas Motor Speedway. He suggested that what Ford said „ basically, that Johnsons pit crew choked under pressure in Texas „ wasnt all that controversial I think hes honest,Ž he said of Ford. Hes the least-cocky guy I know. Anybody whos been in this sport longer than last week will tell you that hes definitely not that. I think hes more boastful of his own team than he is a skeptic of someone elses. I think it kind of came off wrong. I dont think it matters. I think anyone whos leading the points is going to have a target on their backs, like it or not. I think the he said, she said is totally irrelevant.Ž At Team Four Straight „ Johnson, of course, is now the proud owner of Jeff Gordons pit crew, which occurred during the AAA Texas 500 and opened the door to Fords remarks. Johnson said hed do the same for the team, it being Hendrick Motorsports. Theres no doubt that, if we were out of the points and didnt have a chance to win, then I would do anything I could to help my teammates win. Without a doubt, if the roles were reversed, I would offer the same thing up for Jeff Gordons team or Junior (Dale Earnhardt Jr.) or Mark Martins. Without a doubt.Ž Blue, so blue „ Carl Edwards could come up with only one characteristic the last two tracks, Phoenix and Homestead-Miami Speedway, have in common. They both have a blue wall,Ž he said, but this (Phoenix) is a short track (not technically, its a mile), and Homestead is definitely an intermediate track. Just really to be honest with you, two completely different race tracks, but thats what makes this sport what it is. Thats what makes the Chase difficult: Here you are, the last two races to decide a championship, and you have a good short-track race and then you have another good intermediate track. Its a good mixture of race tracks to have to go through and overcome to win a championship.Ž Tough looking up „ Yes, Tony Stewart conceded, its tough to be in the Chase but, well, out of it. All everybody wants to do is talk about the guys (who) are in it, and all we want to do is worry about the stuff were doing ƒ and trying to make our cars better,Ž he said. You want to be in the middle of it, and you want to be those guys that are there, but, at the same time, when it doesnt work out, you have to sit there trying to figure out things at the end of the year and figure out why you didnt get yourself in that position (contention).Ž All times EasternSprint CupFord 400, 1 p.m., SundayNationwide SeriesFord 300,4p.m., SaturdayTruck SeriesFord 200, 7:30 p.m., Friday If you have a question or comment, write: NASCAR This Week, c/o The Gaston Gazette, P.O.

Bowyers first victory occurred at Texas Motor Speedway back in November 2006.CAMPING WORLD TRUCK By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week AVONDALE, Ariz. „ For most of the day at Phoenix International Raceway, it appeared likely that Denny Hamlin would come close to nailing down his first Sprint Cup championship. Things changed. Hamlin led 190 of the Kobalt Tools 500s 312 laps, but at the end, he didnt have enough fuel in his No. 11 Toyota to sustain the victory. Hamlin and teammate Kyle Busch both had to pit near the end, enabling Carl Edwards to win his first race of the season and Hamlins rivals in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick, to close in. For Hamlin, it was a missed opportunity. For Johnson, a fifth-place finish represented new life. Since Hamlin finished 12th, Johnson closed Hamlins margin to a precarious 15 points entering the final race in Homestead, Fla. Harvick finished sixth and kept flickering hopes alive by closing Hamlins lead to 46 points. Hamlin, whose birthday is this week, left the track looking, at least, disappointed, and, at most, despondent. We had a good run,Ž he said, just bad strategy at the end. We let those guys (Johnson and Hamlin) right back in there. Weve just got to go in next week and try to beat them.Ž Johnson, while graceful, relished a better-than-expected outcome that turned the tables on Hamlin, who had left Texas with a victory and momentum. We did a good job of closing the gap and putting all that pressure right on the 11 (Hamlin),Ž he said. Thats the best we could have hoped for. ƒ We put a lot of pressure on those guys.Ž Harvick overcame a pit-road mistake (loose lug nut) that left him furiously playing catch-up in the latter stages. Hamlins untimely pit stop kept him in contention. Our car will be fast next week,Ž said Harvick. It was fast this week.Ž Since Johnson has won the past four championships, the Chase appears to be even closer than Hamlins 15-point edge. Hamlin has never won a title. The points leader kept his chin up. I feel Ive done a good job of that this year,Ž Hamlin said after the race. I wont need a pep talk. Of course, Im going to be disappointed for the next couple hours. But trust me, when I get home, Im done with it. Im going to move on and try how to figure out how to win next week. This is fuel for me.ŽHamlin says crew chief is least cocky guy I knowHomestretch At HomesteadV E R S U S 2010 STANDINGSSprint Cup Pts.1.

He swept Nationwide and Sprint Cup races. ... Ryan Newman “ nished “ rst and second in the two Phoenix races this year. Whos not: Phoenix is historically a trouble spot for Kasey Kahne, who “ nished 30th at Phoenix. ... Clint Bowyer, twice a winner during the Chase, “ nished a lackluster 21st. What goes around comes around. A week after pulling out a win in Texas, Denny Hamlin dominated most of the race at Phoenix, only to see everything go wrong in the late stages. The margin from “rst to second in points, 15, with one race remaining, is the closest in the seven-year history of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Entering the “nal race in 2004, Kurt Busch led Jimmie Johnson by 18 points. Johnsons style of gamesmanship is subtle. After exerting some pressure with his superior strategy at Phoenix, Johnson said of rival Hamlin: Nine years being in Cup, Ive lived in championship pressure, especially the last four years. I know how badly he wants to win a championship. I also know this is going to be a tough week for him, because Ive been there.Ž Im going to be disappointed for the next couple hours,Ž said Hamlin afterward, but trust me. When I get home, Im done with it. Im going to try to “gure out how to win next week.Ž Is there life outside the Chase? Well, Mark Martin occupies 13th place behind the 12 Chase drivers, and he holds a 24-point edge over Jamie McMurray in the best in classŽ competition. Brendan Gaughan made his “rst Cup start of the year and crashed on the second lap. In other words, his Cup season consists of one lap. Carl Edwards won nine races in 2008, but 70 races passed before he “nally earned career victory No. 17. Note Joey Loganos past “ve “nishes: 7, 6, 5, 4, 3. Hes “nished in the top 10 in eight straight races. On the one hand, the Sprint Cup Series enters its “nal race with a three-way scramble at the top. On the other hand, the championships have already been wrapped up in both the Nationwide (Brad Keselowski) and Camping World Truck (Todd Bodine) series. FordFord, crew chief of points leader Denny Hamlin, and Knaus, leading the team of reigning champ Jimmie Johnson, have developed a rivalry as fierce as their drivers. After Hamlins Texas victory, Ford suggested Johnsons crew had essentially choked under pressure. It was Knaus strategy that prevailed at Phoenix, though, as he managed to bring his driver home fifth without having to make a late pit stop. Hamlin had to make such a stop, for fuel, and Hamlin finished 12th. The difference between Hamlin and Johnson is a mere 15 points with one race remaining. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: Johnson could have suggested it was Ford who blinked this time with the championship on the line. But he didnt. The final verdict comes at Homestead-Miami Speedway.ŽMIKE FORD VS. CHAD KNAUSHamlin holds slight lead on Johnson, Harvick KahneTHE LAST RACEJohn Clark/ NASCAR This WeekA disappointing day for Denny Hamlin, at left with owner Joe Gibbs, still has the driver in the points lead. Hamlin, who led 19 0 of 312 laps in Sundays Kobalt Tools 500, holds a 15-point lead on four-time Cup champ Jimmie Johnson. Kevin Harvick is hovering at just 46 po ints behind.

Box 1538, Gastonia, N.C. 28053.Reasons for the NASCAR declineDear NASCAR This Week, (Some reasons why the NASCAR bubbleŽ has burst:) 1. The Chase.......silly and a waste of time. Why run 26 races and then have a 10-race champion crowned? Asinine. The most consistent driver should win the championship. 2. Thirty-six races are waaaaaaaaaaay too much. Run 25, crown a champ, and leave the people with real anticipation for the next year. 3. Eliminate the cookie-cutter tracks. Boring races. 4. Go back to NASCARS roots. Run two races at Darlington. Revamp North Wilkesboro and run there again. Return to the Rock, Rockingham. 5. Qualify 40 cars per race at one-mile-plus tracks. Thirty-six cars at -mile-and-under tracks. No locked-in positions. Qualify on speed or go home. I grew up a NASCAR fan. My family was going to Dover and Richmond (old -mile track) when they only had grandstands on the front stretch. Ten years ago I was sure NASCAR was going to go down the tubes. It is not a stick-and-ball sport. Dont try (to) make it that. All your yuppie fans left after three years. Harold Sultzbaugh Hanover, Pa. Thanks for checking in, Harold.

The second quarter would prove to be the turning point as the Avon Park defense picked up steam. Sebring found baskets hard to come by and the Red Devil offense then took advantage with Cotte popping in another three, along with two free throws, and Markida Hawthorne scoring four. Cotte's total for the period, on its'own, matched the Blue Streak output with Williams and April Wallace each accounting for one bucket and Rose splitting a pair of free throws. The 15-5 margin for the quarter broke open the formerly tight contest to a 31-17 lead at t he half. Jontravia Perry got things started in the third, going inside on a Hawthorne pass, but Williams answered with a score in the paint. Chantel Hughley worked inside for a Devil score, but Allie Mann and Williams each connected from the outside. Astretch at the free throw line saw Avon Park connect on just two of six before Wallace hit consecutive jumpers to cut the lead back to 10. But an English drive ended the frame with the Lady Devils up 39-27. And though Sebring would make a few pushes, Avon Park kept responding over the final eight minutes. After two fast break scores from Cotte, Sam Jansen split a pair at the line and Williams scored on a follow. But Hawthorne then drove for two to halt any momentum. Williams converted a three-point play, but Cotte answered with a three-pointer. Hughley, English and Cotte then each found the bottom of the net to push it to a 54-33 lead. The Streaks would fight back, with Alexxis Harris getting into the mix with a three and a 15-foot jumper, and Williams would score four down the stretch. But it would be too little too late as Cotte added a runner to cap her night with a team high 19 points and seal the win. Hawthorne and English would each add 11 for the Devils while Williams lead Sebring with 19 while Wallace added eight. "We rebounded we ll against a taller team and o ur boxing out was key," Dal ey said. "But we had a lot of turnovers, missed lay-u ps and bad execution. It's t he first game of the season an d we know some things w e need to work on." Lee saw things much t he same for his squad. "At times we did som e great things and other tim es we did some awful things ," he said. "We gave up som e easy scores where o ur defenders got to their spo ts, but lost track of where wh o they were guarding was. "It was the first game an d against a good opponent," he continued. "The girls work ed hard, kept it respectable an d now we'll just focus on wh at we need to do to improve." Sebring was back in actio n Tuesday, hosting Osceola to kick off their district sche dule, while Avon Park had a bit of a break before travelin g to McKeel Thursday to g et their district slate started. Continued from 1B AP starts season with win News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHN E Sebring point guard Alexxis Harris looks for an open teammate against an often stifling Avon Park defense in Monday's Red Devil win. w eird win over the Titans. To replace Pennington on t he roster, the Dolphins s igned veteran Patrick R amsey, who may become t he backup Thursday. Ramsey, an eight-year v eteran, was signed after a h astily arranged tryout M onday. He last played in 2008 w ith Denver and was most r ecently with Jacksonville t his season. Pennington, 34, has u ndergone surgery three t imes on his throwing should er. Promoted to the starting j ob when Henne was b enched last week, P ennington suffered his late st injury on his first play s ince hurting the shoulder in G ame 3 last year. "Devastating," teammate D avone Bess said. "You c an't really even put it in w ords." "Obviously everybody is d isappointed," Sparano s aid. "I know exactly how h ard the guy had to work to g et back. This guy is a real p ro. He has meant an awful l ot to me and this team." Injury issues weren't limi ted to quarterback. Pro Bowl tackle Jake L ong hurt his shoulder a gainst the Titans, and his a vailability was uncertain. Like Long, AFC sack l eader Cameron Wake (hip) a nd safety Chris Clemons (hamstring) finished Sunday's game on the bench. The Dolphins listed 13 players not including Pennington on their injury report Monday, with Henne, Long, Clemons and center Joe Berger (knee) the most seriously hurt. "We have a lot of guys bumped up right now," Sparano said. "We're sorting through it all." As he spoke, Henne was in the training room being treated for a left knee injury that sidelined him in the third quarter. Turnaround time is brief for the Dolphins (5-4), with only a single practice on Tuesday between games. "It's probably good, because we don't have time to dwell on things," receiver Brian Hartline said. "We've got to win games." The short week of preparation makes it less likely Henne will be able to recover enough to start, but Sparano was noncommittal. "We'll see. Right now we are day to day," he said. "Tyler will be ready, depending on what Chad Henne does this week." Thigpen started 11 games for the Chiefs in 2008 but has thrown only 20 passes the past two years. He entered Sunday's game in the fourth quarter and led an 85-yard touchdown drive that sealed the 29-17 win. Thigpen finished 4 for 6 for 64 yards and a score, a remarkably polished performance considering he has been mostly a spectator at practice this season. "As a No. 3, that's what it is you don't get any reps," he said. "The No. 1 gets about 80 percent, and the 2 gets about 20 percent of the reps. But the 3 has to just sit back there and mentally rep every play." The injuries prompted Miami to go without a quarterback for five consecutive plays against the Titans, instead resorting to the wildcat. Brown took those snaps and joked that he'll have his throwing arm warmed up Thursday. Hartline and fellow receiver Bess pointed out they both played QB in high school and were available for emergency duty. "We're loaded, man," Bess said. "Whenever my number is called, I'm going to be ready." Continued from 1B We have a lot of guys bumped up right now.'TONYSPARANO Miami head coach QBs in short supply for Dolphins By RONALD BLUM Associated PressORLANDO Ayear after s hifting their meetings from t he usual resort destinations t o a Chicago airport hotel, b aseball general managers a rrived Monday for their a nnual session, which is b eing held this year near D isney World. The formal meetings were s cheduled for Tuesday and W ednesday, dominated by p resentations from labor l awyers on free agents, salary a rbitration and collective barg aining that will start next y ear. But the informal sessions a re more significant, with a gents for many players on h and to move along the c ourtship process likely to i ntensity when they all gather f or the winter meetings, to be h eld 312miles away in Lake B uena Vista from Dec. 6-9. Teams'business execut ives have gathered nearby f or their industry meetings a nd owners are coming this w eek, too, for a session on T hursday. In addition to various r eports, commissioner Bud S elig will discuss industry e conomics usually a platform for him to warn against overspending as baseball's business season gets underway. Four free agents struck deals Monday. Infielder Geoff Blum became the first of the 166 free agents to switch teams, agreeing to a $2.7 million, two-year contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Staying put were righthander Hiroki Kuroda, who agreed to a $12 million, oneyear contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers; right-hander Jose Contreras, who got a $5.5 million, two-year deal from the Philadelphia Phillies; and catcher Ramon Hernandez, who received a $3 million, one-year contract from the Cincinnati Reds. Also in the backdrop is Selig's intent to expand the playoffs from eight teams to 10. Selig said during the World Series that adding two additional wild cards is under serious consideration, and union head Michael Weiner said players were open to more playoffs. While Selig wouldn't rule out making a proposal for change in 2011, it is increasingly likely that an addition would start in 2012. As of Monday, Weiner said management had not approached the union about the idea formally, When the postseason last expanded, owners voted for the change on Sept. 9, 1993, and management and the union reached an agreement the following Jan. 19. The change was to start for the 1994, but the postseason was canceled because of a 712-month players'strike. Gaining consensus on proposals for collective bargaining also is part of the process this week. Management is expected to propose a slotting system for amateur draft choices in an effort to decrease the amount of bonuses paid to top picks. The players'association historically has been against limits on individual negotiations. There are the first owners' meetings since the resignation last month of Bob DuPuy, baseball's chief operating officer and Selig's No. 2. DuPuy, the chief engineer of many of baseball's business deals, has not been replaced. Baseball GMs arrive for week of industry meetings d ynamic and creative style. T he kids seem tobe enjoyi ng it. "We make a few mistaks h ere and there due to learni ng a new style," he continued. "We might lose some goals to it, but you can see the change in our overall product. They are making some creative plays that haven't really come before." The team hits the road for another district contest Thursday at Ridge before returning home Monday, Nov. 22 for a non-district match against the Brahmans of Okeechobee. Continued from 1B Sebring streaks to 2-1 start Those other teams did well t hemselves as the Senior Red D evils went 13-0, the Juniors w ent 12-1 and took their dist rict championship, the Pee W ees got to the district champ ionship game as did the A von Park Flag team.

This system of health care is used extensively by one-quarter of the worlds population residing in Asia, and is rapidly growing in popularity in the West. Oriental medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the biochemical model of Western medicine.AcupunctureAcupuncture is the 5000 year old Chinese system of natural healing. Fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points of the body to restore a balanced flow of energy. Through acupuncture, Qi (energy) is allowed to move freely throughout the body, reestablishing balance. This balance helps the body achieve higher levels of health and well-being.Chinese HerbsFor as long as people and plants have coexisted, herbal medicine has been around in some shape or form. It has been found to very helpful in treating conditions such as allergies, ADD and ADHD, menopausal syndrome, chronic pain and many, many other ailments.Jeanie O. Lee, D.A.O.M.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Most p eople think a landscape d esign consists of only plant m aterial. Agood landscape d esign also includes "hards cape" material such as r ocks, benches, pots, vases, c urbing, etc. The Avon Park F ounders Garden Club pres ented the Yard of the Month A ward to April Bergstrom for h er use of hardscape materia ls. The property at the corner o f Willow Street and State R oad 17 has three large oak t rees in the southwest corner. I t is in this space that B ergstrom has placed several p ieces of wrought iron. A p ark bench is placed inside a d aybed frame. Pieces of iron f rom an old fence encircle t he area. There are plant s tands, bird feeders, hanging b ird houses, an unidentified p iece used as a plant holder a nd a wrought iron arch with a gate. An old bunk bed set h as been re-constructed as a b ench. Combined with all of the h ardscape are many plants p laced in iron containers. S ome of these plants are a k nockout rose, cardboard p lant, asparagus fern, pentas a nd a vine that had purple b looms last year and white b looms this year. Potted lirio pe sit on every other stone o f a pathway leading to the h ouse. An old washtub sits on i ts side, leaning against an o ld tree stump. Nestled inside t he tub is a geranium. There are many other i nteresting pieces placed in t his area. The front porch of t he house is decorated for the f all season and will be changed for the Christmas holidays. Alive tree is purchased for Christmas and then planted in the yard. Mother Nature has her hand in developing this setting by placing hanging moss in the branches of the oak trees, to give the area a look of the old South. The Yard of the Month doesn't have to be a perfectly manicured yard. Residents or property owners must be the major caretaker of the yard. The size of the yard or the appearance of the house is not of importance in selecting the Yard of the Month. The club looks for landscape design and use of plant and hardscape materials. If you know of a yard deserving of the award, call 452-1927. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 17, 2010Page 7B Custom Concrete Landscape Curbs Landscape Installation Sod Renovation Water Features Waterfalls Ponds385.0404 385.0404Custom Concrete Landscape Curbs Landscape Installation Sod Renovation Water Features Waterfalls PondsSUPPORTYOUR 385-3497HIGHLANDS COUNTYS OLDEST ESTABLISHED HEARING AID OFFICE130 S.

However, with heart disease as t he leading cause of death in the U.S. a nd about 24 million Americans with d iabetes, a healthier take on holiday m eals could benefit everyone. Cheryl Forberg, R.D., consulting dietit ian to NBC-TV's "The Biggest Loser," T heNew York Times best-selling author a nd James Beard award-winning recipe d eveloper, has partnered with CanolaInfo t o create a heart-smart, diabetes-friendly h oliday recipe collection that allows peop le to have their cake (or pumpkin flan) a nd eat it, too.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES Will F errell's dastardly schemes c ontinue to succeed, with the a nimated "Megamind" stayi ng at the top of the box o ffice. The DreamWorks A nimation 3-D comedy, feat uring Ferrell as the voice of a super villain, made just o ver $30 million in its second w eek in theaters, according t o Sunday studio estimates. I t's now made nearly $90 m illion total. "Megamind" a lso features the voices of B rad Pitt, Tina Fey and Jonah H ill. Opening in second place is t he 20th Century Fox action t hriller "Unstoppable," starr ing Denzel Washington and C hris Pine as railroad worke rs trying to stop a massive r unaway train. It made $23.5 m illion. The movie is based o n a 2001 Ohio incident in w hich a train carrying haza rdous cargo traveled 66 m iles without a crew. Last week's No. 2 film, Due Date," fell to the third s pot with $15.5 million. The W arner Bros. comedy feat ures Robert Downey Jr. and Z ach Galifianakis as opposites stuck together on a cross-country road trip. It's now made $59 million in two weeks. Among the weekend's other new releases, "Skyline" opened in fourth place with $11.7 million. The Universal Pictures sci-fi thriller depicts aliens invading and destroying Los Angeles. And "Morning Glory," a Paramount comedy set in a network morning show starring Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton, opened at No. 5 with about $9.6 million. Anne Globe, head of worldwide marketing for DreamWorks Animation, said positive word of mouth helped "Megamind" remain on top. "It's exciting because audiences are clearly responding very well to the movie," said Globe. "This was a decided No. 1 again. We were only down 35 percent, which is a pretty terrific hold for the movie." But "Megamind" is the rare family movie in theaters these days, which also helps, said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Next week, the feverishly anticipated first half of the "Harry Potter" finale, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1," debuts. "Up until 'Megamind'the marketplace was virtually devoid of any family films," Dergarabedian said. "The Rrated films were dominating: You had 'Paranormal Activity 2,''Saw 3-D,' 'Jackass 3D.'Then there was a plethora of adult-oriented dramas: 'Secretariat,''The Social Network,''Hereafter,' all those films. Then there were movies for older audiences like 'Red."' The fact that "Megamind" is in 3-D is also a draw to younger audiences, he said. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 17, 2010Page 11B DUE DATER2:15 4:15 7:15 9:15FOR COLOREDR GIRLS2:00 5:00 8:00MORNINGPG13GLORY2:00 4:30 7:00 9:30REDPG132:00 4:30 7:00 9:30SKYLINEPG132:15 4:15 7:15 9:15UNSTOPPABLEPG132:00 4:30 7:00 9:30 The NewFAIRMOUNTCINEMA63750 US 27 N.

Afew years ago, when my oldest child was beginning to write, my husband and I started the tradition of tucking packets of thank-you cards into their stockings. We explained that Santa must have given them the cards so they would have stationery to write thank-you notes to family and friends for the gifts they had received. The cards are a wonderful reminder to my children that they need to express their gratitude to those who have spent time and money to buy and send them a gift. Usually there are cards left over to cover thank-you notes at birthday time as well. Unfortunately, these days, not enough people even adults take the time to write a note of appreciation for presents they are given. I believe parents should encourage children to do this as soon as they are able to understand the concept. I hope my husband and I are instilling a lifelong habit in our children. Abby, can you help get the point across? Thankful Mom in Brunswick, Maine DearThankful Mom: Gladly. You are teaching your children an important lesson. It's a formality that started being ignored decades ago. Then, as years passed, it was a custom that was not just ignored, but many people forgot it existed. The result was that parents who hadn't been taught the social niceties did not teach them to their children. When I publish letters about thank-you notes, I invariably receive an avalanche of letters and e-mails from readers complaining that they are hurt and offended because they don't receive thank-you notes. Some individuals use texts and e-mails to acknowledge gifts. However, for most people a handwritten note is much more memorable. Thanking someone for a gif t, an invitation to a party or a kind deed in writing is important. While composing a letter may always be a chore to some people, there are occa sions when the written mes sage is the only proper means of communication. I t shows effort, and can become a keepsake. For those people who have diff iculty expressing their thoughts, my booklet "How to Write Letters for All Occasions" covers a few basic rules for acknowledging gifts, expressing sympa thy and accepting or declin ing an invitation. It can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $6 (U.S. funds), to Dea r Abby Letters Booklet, P.O Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Not everyone can write letters that are literary masterpieces, but for anyon e who wonders how to put in writing a brief, charming thank-you note, a letter expressing congratulations, a love letter or one that announces a broken engage ment my booklet will ser ve as a guide to those who hav e put off writing because they didn't know what to say, how to say it, or even how to begin. Because the season for exchanging gifts is nearly here, "Thankful Mom," you r letter is an important and timely one.

Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Kids who send thank-yous stay on Santa's nice' list Ever since the first cavem an cooked an animal over t he fire, there has been cooki ng oil. Today there are vario us cooking oils used in c ooking for frying, stir fryi ng, sauteing, and in salad d ressings. And as you can i magine, there are good c ooking oils, those that a ren't so healthy, and some t hat are downright dangero us. Cooking oils mostly come f rom vegetables. You've s een them in the stores o live, corn, canola, soy, saff lower, avocado, sesame, s unflower, grape-seed, cott onseed, peanut, walnut, a lmond, coconut, hazelnut a nd more. Olive oil is among the h ealthiest of all the cooking o ils. This oil offers a good b alance of both monounsatur ated and polyunsaturated fats. I recommend regular olive oil for cooking; extra virgin olive oil for salads and other uncooked foods. Other healthy oils fall among the nut groups including coconut. Peanut and walnut oils both have high smoking points and are best used for high heat cooking. On the flip side are the oils that are considerably unhealthy. Canola oil shouldn't be used for human consumption because it's a genetically developed plant from Canada that uses the rapeseed plant as its base; a known industrial oil used for machinery and such. The word "canola" comes from the words "Canada" and "oil." The rapeseed plant that's used to create canola oil has been found to be toxic to humans and animals. The worst bad oil of course is any hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oil; these are cheap fats high in trans fats that wreak havoc in the body. These types of fats should be avoided at all costs. The best oils are a variety of oils, the ones that are expeller or cold pressed are the healthiest. (With the exception of any olive oil, all oils should be kept in the fridge to keep their delicate fatty acids intact.) Keep in mind smoke point when cooking and remember, extra virgin olive oil should only be used in its raw state, never cooked.

We dont want the families to be paraded around. We want the kids to have a Christmas just like other children, waking up in the morning and finding presents under the tree.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING After a long and often grueling season, Heartland Idol 2010 came to a melodic conclusion Saturday night as six finalists held nothing back. Shannon Marrero, 33, of Sebring was selected Heartland Idol 2010. Her second selection, God Bless America brought the audience to its feet screaming approval. Lindsey Sears was awarded second place and Ashley Elder took third. Each contestant had to sing two songs, one made famous by the American Idol television show and another of their own choice. Jim McCollum one of Idols greatest supporters, whose sudden death was the heartbreak of the season would have been proud, his friends say, of the quality of the finale. What might have surprised him, but tickled him at the same time, was the friendly battle between the audience and the judges Saturday night. Where the judges maintained their standards and let contestants know where they needed to work harder, the audience was in a mood to celebrate and over look details like pitch or breath control. For example, when Sears wowed the crowd with a lively rendition of Cowboy Casanova, and judge Melanie Boulay, after complimenting Searsvoice, told her to pay attention to breath control, the crowd burst into loud boos. The booing was even louder and more sustained following Amanda Mercers performance of Jesus Take the Wheel, when judge Larry Moore described her performance as mediocre. Other judges explained to Mercer that Moores comments were a compliment. Judge Mike Henry said it this way, We know what you can do and expect more from you. Moore said to the audience, Whoever wins tonight is representing Highlands County, all of us. That didnt keep the audience from booing yet again when contestant Elder was told by Moore, I think you did a great job, you came to win it, but, you didnt nail it. For those without trained ears, every contestant delighted the women with large voices that raise tingly hairs of awe on ones arms. Samantha Berry, for example, belted out a great rendition of Dont Rain on My Parade, that had the audience whistling and stamping its feet. The sole male, Manny Concepcion, was lower key but showed range with the country style To Make You Feel My Love and the urban Kryptonite, pleasing the audience as well.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK First Lieutenant Edward (Ted) Logan passed through Avon Park Air Force Range in the summer of 1944 receiving combat training prior to being sent to Europe as part of the 483rd Bomb Group. Arriving in Italy, he flew his first combat mission on Oct. 10, 1944. Receiving his pilot wings and second lieutenant bars on March 12, 1944 at Valdosta, Ga., Logan flew 34 missions over central Europe before being shot down over Graz, Austria. His 10-man crew were able to parachute to safety only to be rescued by Slovenian partisans and eventually returning to their bombing group. Logan flew his final mission on March 25, 1944, leading the Fifth Wing. Logan will be guest speaker at the local Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) luncheon on Saturday at the Avon Park Air Force Range Dining Hall. He will tell of his World War II experiences as well as his 40-plus years as a commercial pilot. Flying in Central and South America after World War II, he accumulated more than 25,000 hours as a commercial pilot. The luncheon meeting will be held at the Avon Park Air Force Range Dining Hall and start promptly at noon. We believe that Ted Logans military and civilian career of more than 40 years will be of interest to all, said retired Col. Roy Whitton, MOAAchapter president.

Empty Bowls Luncheon feeds crowd Special to the News-SunSEBRING Sheriff S usan Benton would like to i nform the public about f raudulent credit and debit c ard activity in the area. O ver the past several weeks a number of Highlands C ounty residents have b ecome the victims of credi t card cloning. Cloning is t he use of legitimate credit o r debit card numbers to c reate fraudulent cards w hich are then used to run u p significant charges or d ebit the unsuspecting o wner's account. The Sheriffs Office has r eceived reports of victims c redit and debit cards being u sed out of Highlands C ounty while the owners of t hese cards have not left t own and still have possess ion of their original legitim ate card. Residents are urged to t ake the following precaut ions regarding the use of credit and debit cards, especially during the holiday season: Be aware of your surroundings when using ATM machines, particularly when you are asked for your P.I.N. number. If someone is close by they may be able to pick up this number by watching you enter it in the machine. You may want to turn away or take some action to conceal your entry. Pay attention to the units used to scan your credit card. If there appears to be any device attached to the terminal, you may consider asking the clerk to manually enter your credit card number into the system. Try not to let your credit or debit card be taken out of your possession to be scanned. This often occurs in restaurants or other places where the point of sale is not the same as where the service is delivered. When possible, accompany the sales person to the register and keep your card in your possession. Some financial institutions offer notifications when debit cards are used. You may want to take advantage of this service so you will be immediately aware if your card is used without your authorization. Take the time to carefully review bank and credit card statements, especially if they are accessible online. Follow up on any questionable activity with the appropriate merchant or financial institution immediately. Anyone with information about fraudulent credit or debit card activity, or information on possible suspects, is asked to contact the Highlands County Sheriffs Office at 402-7200, or your local law enforcement agency. Sheriff warns of credit card fraud under way in area

When taking the oath of o ffice these three officials, s elected and elected officials, a ssumed a solemn duty as s tewards of Highlands C ountys public resources. The public must trust that i ts government will spend t axpayer dollars in a way that i s responsible, efficient and, a bove all, open to the light of d ay. That is not as easy as it s ounds. Sometimes it may be easier t o gloss over the facts, whitew ash the problems, or just s ay maybe we should not m ention that. Those three face unemp loyment rates that are highe r than any in remembered h istory in this county, a housi ng market and local econom y that is broke and a budget t hat is close to over extendi ng itself. With little or no c ontingency left for a rainy d ay. They also face the hard d ecisions of how to get the n eeded revenue to insure that t he core services required to k eep the county functioning, and ensuring that those core services are the main focus of their tenure. These are hard times, and it calls for hard decisions. With those decisions, many faces are turned to those three to make Highlands County better by their motions and votes. Faces written with the lines of foreclosure, of pain for not being able to provide, of single mothers, and fathers, but still faces with some hope. To make those decisions, these three, along with those already there, must put away the parties that put them there. They must turn away from the compromise and desire to serve just the affluent, and set their feet to defend the entire makeup of citizens that fill the house that is Highlands County. They must stand. It will be hard to do that, and it will be interesting to see if these new servants of the public can achieve those lofty goals. We are hopeful, we are watching and we are expecting more than ever before from our elected officials. Especially these three. All they have to do is to realize that a public office is a public trust. Thats the foundation for their decisions, not how does this look. Public office is a public trust There are a few simple things we need to remember. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The more power, we allow the federal government to take, the more corruption there will be. This is because when the government insists on taxing and regulating everything, those who will be most affected want tax breaks and the regulations to favor them, so they spend millions on lobbyists who offer campaign contributions to Congressmen on both sides of the aisle. They even write the legislation and give it to Congressmen. The Congressmen listen to these special interest groups because they know on which side their bread is buttered. The Congressmen earmark funds to go to projects which their contributors favor. If the federal government stops the earmarks and keeps regulations to the minimum, the special interests will have no reason to spend millions of lobbyists and they will keep the money to invest in expanding business. What you reward you get more of, what you punish you get less of. If we reward failed enterprises, failed government programs, and overspending state governments with bailouts, we will get more failed enterprises, government programs, and overspending state government. In private businesses, if a product fails to sell, it is discontinued. If a government project fails, it is given more money. Big government increases crime. When the government gives away money, it attracts thieves and scam artists. Waste and fraud are inevitable. The only way to stop them is to turn off the tap. Government programs are like vampires they suck our blood and live forever. However, they shrivel up in the sunlight. Since Congress is incapable of discretion, we need to drive a stake through the heart of every piece of discretionary spending by ending them all, and then decided which are absolutely necessary. How can we decide what programs are absolutely necessary? Simple, responsibility belongs at the lowest level possible: first the family, then private institutions and businesses, then local government, followed by state government, the federal government, and last and hopefully least international agencies. The federal government should do only those things which state governments individually cannot do. That is what the Constitution envisioned. For example, we dont need a federal Department of Education. The country got along without one for 200 years and everyone agrees that since the Department of Education was established, the achievement of American students has deteriorated. Every state has a Department of Education and every locality has its own Board of Education. We need to sunset all research grants. Every year watchdog groups publish lists of the most absurd grants, and everyone is shocked at the amount of money wasted on studies of dubious value, but the next year there are more studies and more wasted money. If a study is really important, someone will do it a university, a non-governmenta l organization, a foundation, a business. If none of these a re willing to fund it, it probab ly doesnt need to be done. Democrats constantly use scare tactics. They point to a problem and then try to make people believe that if the federal government doe snt immediately intervene, the problem cannot be solved. History shows us that in most cases when the federal government gets involved the problem gets worse. Big government isnt the solution, it is the problem.

Primal Feelings a wonderful event E ditor: It is emotionally hard to go to A von Park Youth Academy (APYA) a nd see these boys from 14-17. It b rings out the mother in you. On Saturday, Nov. 5 at 1:30 p .m.,Primal Feelings, a six-stud ent percussion ensemble gave t heir debut performance to about 2 00 fellow students and staff of A PYA. This concert marked the c ulmination of a 12-week P ercussion Education Program for T roubled Teens presented by P rimal Connection and funded, in l arge part, by a grant from H eartland for Children. The program is designed to d evelop teamwork, build self e steem and teach the joy of making m usic to young first time offende rs. The program also acts as a crea tive outlet, as well as a construct ive way to release stress and a nger. Two Primal Connection f acilitators/instructors, Fred Leavitt a nd Idris El, guide the children t hrough the process of acquiring p ercussion playing skills, ensemble p laying techniques and the import ance of teamwork to reach a comm on goal. Over a three-month perio d the group is gradually empowe red to take responsibilities from n aming themselves and designing t heir T-shirts to creating and perf orming original percussion a rrangements. This group seemed particularly c omfortably with each other. This w as not the case when they started t he program. After talking to each o ne of them, I concluded that they m ade friendships here that were positive. The creativity part they said meant a lot to them as they learned to express their selves through the music. Learning to work as a team is part of the program and this particular group has learned that lesson well. All of the boys in the ensemble came from a one-parent home. They lacked a male role model and direction in their lives. The children were developing a failure syndrome with attendant low-self esteem. This can lead to antisocial behavior and a costly waste of human potential. The Primal Connection program has been effective in reaching and turning around children who are on the path of self destruction. They experience success and the power of teamwork. To listen to the music they made in concert is to realize that they are good kids that have a lot to offer. And then, when they were called to encore, their pride in accomplishment was not only evident but contagious. They knew they did well and more importantly they learned they could succeed. At the end the team loaded up the instruments and they all signed Freds and Idriss Primal Feeling T-shirts. Then ate pizza and shared how they felt about the drum program. I believe that his group of teens really learned to apply all the different educational modalities of the program. Some that have the money will buy a drum when they leave and attend drum circles in their area. Everyone involved was extremely disappointed that Fred could not continue to teach as the grant monies ran out. Fred would like to teach three classes a year for nine months. If you would like to contribute to the Primal programs at the Academy, Fred Leavitt and Pete Zeegers, Facilities manager at Avon Park Youth Academy, would be very grateful. Contact information is Fred at (863) 4028238 or Fred@primalconnection.org. I love these kids. What a joyous thing to see happen. Gail Leavitt SebringA message to the voters Editor: I arrived in Highlands County back in late September of 2002. For more than eight years, I have been nothing short of amazed at the hospitality, the incredible friendliness of our countys residents, and that intangible feeling of being home. In short, I truly love the county in which I live. On Election Night, I stood with my wife Sheri in the Supervisor of Elections office as we nervously awaited the results of our county commission race. For months, Id received so much support, so much encouragement from hundreds of friends and neighbors. It is your energy, your positive spirit that fueled my passion to try and take my involvement in the community to a much higher level. When the final results were printed out and handed to me, I couldnt form words. I simply pointed at the numbers and hugged my wife really, really hard. Over 20,000 friends, neighbors and residents of Highlands County thought that I was the best choice to lead our county through some of the most difficult times weve ever seen. The results were both aweinspiring and sobering, as the full weight of the trust being put in me hit me like a sledgehammer. I will do my best to never forget the waves of support, the honks and thumbs-up, and the thousands of people who embraced my message of representing the people who put you into the office to begin with ... in every decision, every day. As I stated during the campaign, everyone will not agree with me 100 percent of the time. However, everyone will know with 100 percent certainty that my vote was based on research, knowledge and input from my constituents and placed with the best interests of the people of Highlands County in the forefront of my mind. That simple guiding philosophy, coupled with enhanced emphasis on communication, transparency and accountability, will be the foundation of my tenure as Highlands County commissioner. I applaud and congratulate my opponent, Chester Dishong Downing, for displaying true class every day of the campaign. I have nothing but respect for his many years of service to our countys children, and I look forward to working together with him and all of the residents of Highlands County as we move our county forward together. I look for input from every party, every community and every citizen, as we think of ways together to best serve our citizens and keep our quality of life as high as poss ible. The next few years will be challenging, but I eagerly look fo rward to putting in the work and time needed to becoming an effec tive elected representative of the people that I can. I am extraordinarily grateful to our countys vot ers, and promise to do my absolut e best to make each of you very proud of your selection last week Thank you again so very much.

Page 6ANews-SunWednesday, Novmeber 17, 2010www.newssun.com By MARC LEVY Associated PressHARRISBURG, Pa. David G rove was a member of the thin g reen line one of the wildlife o fficers who work mostly alone, o ften in forests, at night, in the c old and in close range of people w ho almost always are carrying g uns. Police say the 31-year-old ward en was apprehending an armed p oacher last week in the kind of e ncounter that he and his coll eagues often worry about the k ind he had recently written a news a rticle about, after a young suspect e scaped but later turned himself in. I hope Justin will learn from his e ncounters with me and realize that b reaking game laws and poaching w ill never do anything good for h im in his life, Grove wrote in the N ovember issue of Pennsylvania G ame News. Thursday night, Grove caught a f elon poaching deer with a spotl ight near Gettysburg, pulled him o ver and was shot four times, p olice said. He was the first P ennsylvania game warden killed i n the line of duty in 95 years, but t he occupation remains hazardous b y its very nature. The North American Wildlife E nforcement Officers Association s ays about 70 wildlife officers in t he United States have died in the l ine of duty since 1980, more than a dozen of them from accidental or m alicious killings. Everybody we deal with has a f irearm, said Richard Cramer, the a ssociations vice president and a l and management supervisor for t he Pennsylvania Game C ommission. Often, game wardens a re encountering folks out to i ntentionally break the law with f irearms. In 2007, Texas game warden J ustin Hurst, 34, was fatally shot w ith an assault rifle while pursuing a man suspected of illegally hunti ng from the road. In 2002, Alabama game warden J immy Hutto was shot while assisti ng drug task forces investigating a methamphetamine operation and died weeks later. This past February, the killer of Florida wildlife officer Margaret Peggy Park in 1984 was executed. Park was shot with her own gun by a burglar on probation as she patrolled a wooded area. In March, a 37-year-old federal wildlife officer, Chris Upton, was shot and killed when a Georgia hunter mistook him for a coyote. For much of the year, a wildlife officer deals with complaints about nuisance animals including bears, raccoons and skunks. In the fall hunting season, the work changes to monitoring for illegal hunting. You would run into people who were drunk, out hunting, trying to spotlight a deer, or on drugs, said Bill Bower, a former Pennsylvania wildlife conservation officer who retired in 2002 after 35 years in Bradford County, in the rural north-central part of the state. So its always in the back of your mind that this could get dangerous. Backup could be an hour or more away, and in some cases meant getting out of bed in the middle of the night when a farmer called to say hed seen someone hunting illegally, Bower recalled. Id jump up and take off, with my wife saying, Be careful, be careful,said Bower, 71. In Groves case, he called in the license plate number of the suspect, Christopher L. Johnson, before the shooting, police said. That gave them a critical piece of information. Authorities say Grove had Johnson, 27, partially handcuffed before the shooting. The suspect told police he fled with the handcuffs locked on his left wrist and shot them off himself, according t o a police affidavit. He was arrested the next day at a hunting camp. In an interview over the weekend with The Associated Press, Groves older brother reflected on the intertwined fate of his family with the suspects. I dont know him from Adam, but hes a part of our life now and will be forever, said Chad Grove of Martinsburg, W.Va. But honestly, I dont think about him very much. I think mor e about my brother, and you pull ou t the pictures and look at the good times and the fish we caught and the turkeys we killed and the deer we shot. You hold on to what you have. In his article for Game News, Grove wrote about heading out fo r night surveillance duty with Joe, an applicant to become a deputy gam e warden. They saw the flash of a spotligh t about a mile away and heard the report of a large-caliber rifle. The y drove toward the sound, soon surprising two men in a sports car. The drivers first words were, We didnt shoot,Grove wrote. I again asked for the gun and spotlight, and the driver just looked at me with a blank stare an d then put the car into reverse. Though Justin escaped and late r turned himself in, Grove noted th at he stumbled onto the same duo later that deer season hunting illegally. Most hunters Bower dealt with were gentlemen, he said. Other times, they would swear at or threaten him. Things like that back 20 years ago wouldnt mean much, Bowe r said, but today if you told a poli ce officer that, you might have a big problem.

Stuffed animals look g ood on a motorcycle, but t hey dont do much for kids, B easley said. She recomm ends looking for something m ore interactive. The children range in age from infants to teenagers. Chapter president Tom Higgins said the line-up begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 4, at the Blue Crab Restaurant, 825 N. Ridgewood Drive in Sebring. The police-escorted run will begin promptly at 1 p.m. The ride heads north, Higgins said, up U.S. 17, to Avon Park, where it will run west on Main Street to U.S. 27. Then it heads south to Lake Placid and Interlake Boulevard, to Devane Circle, around it and back up U.S. 27 to Sebrings Historic Circle, around it, to finish up at the Elks Club at 2618 Kenilworth Blvd. where a complete turkey dinner will be waiting. Alive auction and a 50/50 drawing adds to the excitement. All it takes to join the ride for this worthy cause, and get a meal, is $10 and an unwrapped toy. Of course, ABATE will happily accept all donations, even from people who dont care to ride. There is still time to nominate a worthy family for this program. Names are being taken through Monday.

Jack Richie was second, and he chose Highlands County Clerk of Courts Bob Germaine to offer him the oath of office.

New commissioners take seats on board The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN Associated PressST. PETERSBURG The A merican Civil Liberties U nion and several other m edia and First Amendment g roups sent letters to the F loridas chief justice and a nother judge, urging them to e nsure foreclosure proceedi ngs remain open to the publ ic and the media. In letters sent Friday to C hief Justice Charles Canady o f the Florida Supreme Court a nd Chief Judge Donald M oran of Floridas Fourth J udicial Circuit, the ACLU c ites a troubling pattern of f oreclosure courts operating b ehind closed doors. Our organizations have r eceived numerous reports t hat extraordinary barriers to access are preventing members of the general public, as well as representatives of the news media, from observing foreclosure proceedings in judicial circuits around the state, the ACLU wrote to Judge Canady. We believe these barriers undercut the transparency of the judicial process; they also violate the strong presumption of open access to judicial proceedings under Florida law. Foreclosure hearings in Florida courts are supposed to be open. In response to the ACLU letter, Canady said he is deeply concerned about the allegations and directed the Office of the State Courts Administrator to recommend corrective actions. ACLU wants states foreclosure hearings to remain public have at least one county commission meeting to be held in the evening, around 6 p.m., so that people who work during the day can be there. I think we can think about it and get some guidance from Rickey (Helms), said Commissioner Barbara Stewart. But its always worth trying. I would like to use that fourth one, if the agenda is light, for the departments to come in and update us, or using it for the TDC (Tourist Development Council) come in and give us an update. I just really think that if we are here to be commissioners, it would be really great to be here four Tuesdays, Elwell said. Elwell also asked to set a date about how best to staff a position of county attorney. I would like to set a date on how best to staff the position of county attorney for Highlands County, Elwell added. I would like to take a look at what other counties are doing and have a discussion on if we need to stay the way we are right now, or possibly a staff attorney or some sort of hybrid. This is not some sort of finger-pointing issue, but I want to discuss how best to serve Highlands County on this issue, said Elwell. There are a bunch of groups that have brought it up, and it came up during the campaign. It is time to begin that process. Elwell also asked for a goal setting worksho p where the commissio n could voice what their p riorities are, and what thin gs they could see over the ne xt 12 months. It doesnt have to be anything real formal, but at least a workshop where w e can say OK, these a re things we need to be mo ving on, and these are t he things that are best for t he countyand do that in t he next 30 days or so, Elwe ll said.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING After a strong o pening win against district f oe Winter Haven last T uesday, the Sebring s occer squad had taken a tough, 2-1 loss at C lewiston Thursday. Back into the D istrict 5-5Aschedule M onday, the Streaks g ot back to their winn ing way, shutting out Lake W ales by a 3-0 score. It was a tough one T hursday, but it was competitive and we were right there, first year varsity coach Keith Bowyer said before the Monday night match. The thing with team sports is, the individual has to let go of his ego and see it more in the team mindset. This is a good group of kids who really do look at it like that. And Mondays win was a good indication of that as the scores came from three different players, showing the balance and numerous weapons that Sebring has. At the 10-minute mark, it was Elisha Klatt booting one in for a 1-0 Blue Streak lead. David Scheck then got into the scoring mix in the 27th minute to carry Sebring into the intermission with the two-goal lead. Afree kick in the second half from Derreck Drummond finished up the scoring on the night. Goalkeeper Ethan Smith, though not overly busy behind the strong and scrambling Blue Streak defense, picked up five saves on the night to preserve the shutout and move Sebring to a 2-1 record on the season and 2-0 in district play. Im actually very excited about the way the team is playing, Bowyer said. Ive loosened up the system of play this year,with instructions to make more circulating runs, allowing for a more By STEVEN WINE Associated PressDAVIE Playing for the f irst time this season, Chad P ennington was so reluctant t o leave the field that he a sked a teammate to pop his i njured right shoulder back i nto place. After being hurt on the M iami Dolphinsfirst play, P ennington extended his r ight arm toward running b ack Ronnie Brown. Hes in the huddle and he s aid, Pull it, Brown said. Im scared. I dont want to p ull it too hard Ill mess it u p. I gave a small tug. The emergency procedure f ailed to help. Pennington came out of the g ame, and now his season is o ver and perhaps even his c areer. Pennington was placed on r eserve-injured Monday, part o f the fallout from a quarterb ack calamity in Sundays v ictory over Tennessee. Chad Henne was also hurt b ut might be available for T hursday nights game a gainst the Chicago Bears, c oach Tony Sparano said.

And it was a good team effort, along with a one-sided second quarter, that propelled Avon Park to a 57-42 win. But even with the win, it was after all, the opening game of the regular season, with the respective coaches noticing more what needs to be worked on. Its always fun to play against Sebring, Lady Devil head coach Paulette Daley said. Its a rival game and they always show where we need room f or improvement. Sebring head coach Mi ke Lee was viewing it from a similar angl e. Its good for us to face a good tea m like Avon Park, he said. Theyre an aggressive, stron g team thats going to come after you an d point out yo ur flaws. There didnt seem to be too many on either si de early on, as the fever ed pitch from the stands ca rried onto the court as t he two teams went back an d forth during the openin g eight minutes.

www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 17, 2010Page 3B By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week AVONDALE, Ariz. Predictably, Hamlin defended his crew chief, Mike Ford, for controversial remarks after Hamlins win on Nov. 7 at Texas Motor Speedway. He suggested that what Ford said basically, that Johnsons pit crew choked under pressure in Texas wasnt all that controversial I think hes honest, he said of Ford. Hes the least-cocky guy I know. Anybody whos been in this sport longer than last week will tell you that hes definitely not that. I think hes more boastful of his own team than he is a skeptic of someone elses. I think it kind of came off wrong. I dont think it matters. I think anyone whos leading the points is going to have a target on their backs, like it or not. I think the he said, she said is totally irrelevant. At Team Four Straight Johnson, of course, is now the proud owner of Jeff Gordons pit crew, which occurred during the AAA Texas 500 and opened the door to Fords remarks. Johnson said hed do the same for the team, it being Hendrick Motorsports. Theres no doubt that, if we were out of the points and didnt have a chance to win, then I would do anything I could to help my teammates win. Without a doubt, if the roles were reversed, I would offer the same thing up for Jeff Gordons team or Junior (Dale Earnhardt Jr.) or Mark Martins. Without a doubt. Blue, so blue Carl Edwards could come up with only one characteristic the last two tracks, Phoenix and Homestead-Miami Speedway, have in common. They both have a blue wall, he said, but this (Phoenix) is a short track (not technically, its a mile), and Homestead is definitely an intermediate track. Just really to be honest with you, two completely different race tracks, but thats what makes this sport what it is. Thats what makes the Chase difficult: Here you are, the last two races to decide a championship, and you have a good short-track race and then you have another good intermediate track. Its a good mixture of race tracks to have to go through and overcome to win a championship. Tough looking up Yes, Tony Stewart conceded, its tough to be in the Chase but, well, out of it. All everybody wants to do is talk about the guys (who) are in it, and all we want to do is worry about the stuff were doing and trying to make our cars better, he said. You want to be in the middle of it, and you want to be those guys that are there, but, at the same time, when it doesnt work out, you have to sit there trying to figure out things at the end of the year and figure out why you didnt get yourself in that position (contention).

For most of the day at Phoenix International Raceway, it appeared likely that Denny Hamlin would come close to nailing down his first Sprint Cup championship. Things changed. Hamlin led 190 of the Kobalt Tools 500s 312 laps, but at the end, he didnt have enough fuel in his No. 11 Toyota to sustain the victory. Hamlin and teammate Kyle Busch both had to pit near the end, enabling Carl Edwards to win his first race of the season and Hamlins rivals in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick, to close in. For Hamlin, it was a missed opportunity. For Johnson, a fifth-place finish represented new life. Since Hamlin finished 12th, Johnson closed Hamlins margin to a precarious 15 points entering the final race in Homestead, Fla. Harvick finished sixth and kept flickering hopes alive by closing Hamlins lead to 46 points. Hamlin, whose birthday is this week, left the track looking, at least, disappointed, and, at most, despondent. We had a good run, he said, just bad strategy at the end. We let those guys (Johnson and Hamlin) right back in there. Weve just got to go in next week and try to beat them. Johnson, while graceful, relished a better-than-expected outcome that turned the tables on Hamlin, who had left Texas with a victory and momentum. We did a good job of closing the gap and putting all that pressure right on the (Hamlin), he said. Thats the best we could have hoped for. We put a lot of pressure on those guys. Harvick overcame a pit-road mistake (loose lug nut) that left him furiously playing catch-up in the latter stages. Hamlins untimely pit stop kept him in contention. Our car will be fast next week, said Harvick. It was fast this week. Since Johnson has won the past four championships, the Chase appears to be even closer than Hamlins 15-point edge. Hamlin has never won a title. The points leader kept his chin up. I feel Ive done a good job of that this year, Hamlin said after the race. I wont need a pep talk. Of course, Im going to be disappointed for the next couple hours. But trust me, when I get home, Im done with it. Im going to move on and try how to figure out how to win next week. This is fuel for me.Hamlin says crew chief is least cocky guy I knowHomestretch At HomesteadV E R S U S 2010 STANDINGSSprint Cup Pts.1. Denny Hamlin 6,462 2. Jimmie Johnson 15 3. Kevin Harvick 46 4.

Ryan Newman nished rst and second in the two Phoenix races this year. Whos not: Phoenix is historically a trouble spot for Kasey Kahne, who nished 30th at Phoenix. ... Clint Bowyer, twice a winner during the Chase, nished a lackluster 21st. What goes around comes around. A week after pulling out a win in Texas, Denny Hamlin dominated most of the race at Phoenix, only to see everything go wrong in the late stages. The margin from rst to second in points, 15, with one race remaining, is the closest in the seven-year history of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Entering the nal race in 2004, Kurt Busch led Jimmie Johnson by 18 points. Johnsons style of gamesmanship is subtle. After exerting some pressure with his superior strategy at Phoenix, Johnson said of rival Hamlin: Nine years being in Cup, Ive lived in championship pressure, especially the last four years. I know how badly he wants to win a championship. I also know this is going to be a tough week for him, because Ive been there. Im going to be disappointed for the next couple hours, said Hamlin afterward, but trust me. When I get home, Im done with it. Im going to try to gure out how to win next week. Is there life outside the Chase? Well, Mark Martin occupies 13th place behind the 12 Chase drivers, and he holds a 24-point edge over Jamie McMurray in the best in class competition. Brendan Gaughan made his rst Cup start of the year and crashed on the second lap. In other words, his Cup season consists of one lap. Carl Edwards won nine races in 2008, but 70 races passed before he nally earned career victory No. 17. Note Joey Loganos past ve nishes: 7, 6, 5, 4, 3. Hes nished in the top 10 in eight straight races. On the one hand, the Sprint Cup Series enters its nal race with a three-way scramble at the top. On the other hand, the championships have already been wrapped up in both the Nationwide (Brad Keselowski) and Camping World Truck (Todd Bodine) series. FordFord, crew chief of points leader Denny Hamlin, and Knaus, leading the team of reigning champ Jimmie Johnson, have developed a rivalry as fierce as their drivers. After Hamlins Texas victory, Ford suggested Johnsons crew had essentially choked under pressure. It was Knaus strategy that prevailed at Phoenix, though, as he managed to bring his driver home fifth without having to make a late pit stop. Hamlin had to make such a stop, for fuel, and Hamlin finished 12th. The difference between Hamlin and Johnson is a mere 15 points with one race remaining. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: Johnson could have suggested it was Ford who blinked this time with the championship on the line. But he didnt. The final verdict comes at Homestead-Miami Speedway.MIKE FORD VS. CHAD KNAUSHamlin holds slight lead on Johnson, Harvick KahneTHE LAST RACEJohn Clark/ NASCAR This WeekA disappointing day for Denny Hamlin, at left with owner Joe Gibbs, still has the driver in the points lead. Hamlin, who led 190 of 312 laps in Sundays Kobalt Tools 500, holds a 15-point lead on four-time Cup champ Jimmie Johnson. Kevin Harvick is hovering at just 46 points behind.

Box 1538, Gastonia, N.C. 28053.Reasons for the NASCAR declineDear NASCAR This Week, (Some reasons why the NASCAR bubble has burst:) 1. The Chase.......silly and a waste of time. Why run 26 races and then have a 10-race champion crowned? Asinine. The most consistent driver should win the championship. 2. Thirty-six races are waaaaaaaaaaay too much. Run 25, crown a champ, and leave the people with real anticipation for the next year. 3. Eliminate the cookie-cutter tracks. Boring races. 4. Go back to NASCARS roots. Run two races at Darlington. Revamp North Wilkesboro and run there again. Return to the Rock, Rockingham. 5. Qualify 40 cars per race at one-mile-plus tracks. Thirty-six cars at -mile-and-under tracks. No locked-in positions. Qualify on speed or go home. I grew up a NASCAR fan. My family was going to Dover and Richmond (old -mile track) when they only had grandstands on the front stretch. Ten years ago I was sure NASCAR was going to go down the tubes. It is not a stick-and-ball sport. Dont try (to) make it that. All your yuppie fans left after three years. Harold Sultzbaugh Hanover, Pa. Thanks for checking in, Harold.

The second quarter would prove to be the turning point as the Avon Park defense picked up steam. Sebring found baskets hard to come by and the Red Devil offense then took advantage with Cotte popping in another three, along with two free throws, and Markida Hawthorne scoring four. Cottes total for the period, on itsown, matched the Blue Streak output with Williams and April Wallace each accounting for one bucket and Rose splitting a pair of free throws. The 15-5 margin for the quarter broke open the formerly tight contest to a 31-17 lead at t he half. Jontravia Perry got things started in the third, going inside on a Hawthorne pass, but Williams answered with a score in the paint. Chantel Hughley worked inside for a Devil score, but Allie Mann and Williams each connected from the outside. Astretch at the free throw line saw Avon Park connect on just two of six before Wallace hit consecutive jumpers to cut the lead back to 10. But an English drive ended the frame with the Lady Devils up 39-27. And though Sebring would make a few pushes, Avon Park kept responding over the final eight minutes. After two fast break scores from Cotte, Sam Jansen split a pair at the line and Williams scored on a follow. But Hawthorne then drove for two to halt any momentum. Williams converted a three-point play, but Cotte answered with a three-pointer. Hughley, English and Cotte then each found the bottom of the net to push it to a 54-33 lead. The Streaks would fight back, with Alexxis Harris getting into the mix with a three and a 15-foot jumper, and Williams would score four down the stretch. But it would be too little too late as Cotte added a runner to cap her night with a team high 19 points and seal the win. Hawthorne and English would each add 11 for the Devils while Williams lead Sebring with 19 while Wallace added eight. We rebounded we ll against a taller team and o ur boxing out was key, Dal ey said. But we had a lot of turnovers, missed lay-u ps and bad execution. Its t he first game of the season an d we know some things w e need to work on. Lee saw things much t he same for his squad. At times we did som e great things and other tim es we did some awful things , he said. We gave up som e easy scores where o ur defenders got to their spo ts, but lost track of where wh o they were guarding was. It was the first game an d against a good opponent, he continued. The girls work ed hard, kept it respectable an d now well just focus on wh at we need to do to improve. Sebring was back in actio n Tuesday, hosting Osceola to kick off their district sche dule, while Avon Park had a bit of a break before travelin g to McKeel Thursday to g et their district slate started. Continued from 1B AP starts season with win News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHN E Sebring point guard Alexxis Harris looks for an open teammate against an often stifling Avon Park defense in Mondays Red Devil win. w eird win over the Titans. To replace Pennington on t he roster, the Dolphins s igned veteran Patrick R amsey, who may become t he backup Thursday. Ramsey, an eight-year v eteran, was signed after a h astily arranged tryout M onday. He last played in 2008 w ith Denver and was most r ecently with Jacksonville t his season. Pennington, 34, has u ndergone surgery three t imes on his throwing should er. Promoted to the starting j ob when Henne was b enched last week, P ennington suffered his late st injury on his first play s ince hurting the shoulder in G ame 3 last year. Devastating, teammate D avone Bess said. You c ant really even put it in w ords. Obviously everybody is d isappointed, Sparano s aid. I know exactly how h ard the guy had to work to g et back. This guy is a real p ro. He has meant an awful l ot to me and this team. Injury issues werent limi ted to quarterback. Pro Bowl tackle Jake L ong hurt his shoulder a gainst the Titans, and his a vailability was uncertain. Like Long, AFC sack l eader Cameron Wake (hip) a nd safety Chris Clemons (hamstring) finished Sundays game on the bench. The Dolphins listed 13 players not including Pennington on their injury report Monday, with Henne, Long, Clemons and center Joe Berger (knee) the most seriously hurt. We have a lot of guys bumped up right now, Sparano said. Were sorting through it all. As he spoke, Henne was in the training room being treated for a left knee injury that sidelined him in the third quarter. Turnaround time is brief for the Dolphins (5-4), with only a single practice on Tuesday between games. Its probably good, because we dont have time to dwell on things, receiver Brian Hartline said. Weve got to win games. The short week of preparation makes it less likely Henne will be able to recover enough to start, but Sparano was noncommittal. Well see. Right now we are day to day, he said. Tyler will be ready, depending on what Chad Henne does this week. Thigpen started 11 games for the Chiefs in 2008 but has thrown only 20 passes the past two years. He entered Sundays game in the fourth quarter and led an 85-yard touchdown drive that sealed the 29-17 win. Thigpen finished 4 for 6 for 64 yards and a score, a remarkably polished performance considering he has been mostly a spectator at practice this season. As a No. 3, thats what it is you dont get any reps, he said. The No. 1 gets about 80 percent, and the 2 gets about 20 percent of the reps. But the 3 has to just sit back there and mentally rep every play. The injuries prompted Miami to go without a quarterback for five consecutive plays against the Titans, instead resorting to the wildcat. Brown took those snaps and joked that hell have his throwing arm warmed up Thursday. Hartline and fellow receiver Bess pointed out they both played QB in high school and were available for emergency duty. Were loaded, man, Bess said. Whenever my number is called, Im going to be ready. Continued from 1B We have a lot of guys bumped up right now.TONYSPARANO Miami head coach QBs in short supply for Dolphins By RONALD BLUM Associated PressORLANDO Ayear after s hifting their meetings from t he usual resort destinations t o a Chicago airport hotel, b aseball general managers a rrived Monday for their a nnual session, which is b eing held this year near D isney World. The formal meetings were s cheduled for Tuesday and W ednesday, dominated by p resentations from labor l awyers on free agents, salary a rbitration and collective barg aining that will start next y ear. But the informal sessions a re more significant, with a gents for many players on h and to move along the c ourtship process likely to i ntensity when they all gather f or the winter meetings, to be h eld 312miles away in Lake B uena Vista from Dec. 6-9. Teamsbusiness execut ives have gathered nearby f or their industry meetings a nd owners are coming this w eek, too, for a session on T hursday. In addition to various r eports, commissioner Bud S elig will discuss industry e conomics usually a platform for him to warn against overspending as baseballs business season gets underway. Four free agents struck deals Monday. Infielder Geoff Blum became the first of the 166 free agents to switch teams, agreeing to a $2.7 million, two-year contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Staying put were righthander Hiroki Kuroda, who agreed to a $12 million, oneyear contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers; right-hander Jose Contreras, who got a $5.5 million, two-year deal from the Philadelphia Phillies; and catcher Ramon Hernandez, who received a $3 million, one-year contract from the Cincinnati Reds. Also in the backdrop is Seligs intent to expand the playoffs from eight teams to 10. Selig said during the World Series that adding two additional wild cards is under serious consideration, and union head Michael Weiner said players were open to more playoffs. While Selig wouldnt rule out making a proposal for change in 2011, it is increasingly likely that an addition would start in 2012. As of Monday, Weiner said management had not approached the union about the idea formally, When the postseason last expanded, owners voted for the change on Sept. 9, 1993, and management and the union reached an agreement the following Jan. 19. The change was to start for the 1994, but the postseason was canceled because of a 712-month playersstrike. Gaining consensus on proposals for collective bargaining also is part of the process this week. Management is expected to propose a slotting system for amateur draft choices in an effort to decrease the amount of bonuses paid to top picks. The playersassociation historically has been against limits on individual negotiations. There are the first owners meetings since the resignation last month of Bob DuPuy, baseballs chief operating officer and Seligs No. 2. DuPuy, the chief engineer of many of baseballs business deals, has not been replaced. Baseball GMs arrive for week of industry meetings d ynamic and creative style. T he kids seem tobe enjoyi ng it. We make a few mistaks h ere and there due to learni ng a new style, he continued. We might lose some goals to it, but you can see the change in our overall product. They are making some creative plays that havent really come before. The team hits the road for another district contest Thursday at Ridge before returning home Monday, Nov. 22 for a non-district match against the Brahmans of Okeechobee.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Most p eople think a landscape d esign consists of only plant m aterial. Agood landscape d esign also includes hards cape material such as r ocks, benches, pots, vases, c urbing, etc. The Avon Park F ounders Garden Club pres ented the Yard of the Month A ward to April Bergstrom for h er use of hardscape materia ls. The property at the corner o f Willow Street and State R oad 17 has three large oak t rees in the southwest corner. I t is in this space that B ergstrom has placed several p ieces of wrought iron. A p ark bench is placed inside a d aybed frame. Pieces of iron f rom an old fence encircle t he area. There are plant s tands, bird feeders, hanging b ird houses, an unidentified p iece used as a plant holder a nd a wrought iron arch with a gate. An old bunk bed set h as been re-constructed as a b ench. Combined with all of the h ardscape are many plants p laced in iron containers. S ome of these plants are a k nockout rose, cardboard p lant, asparagus fern, pentas a nd a vine that had purple b looms last year and white b looms this year. Potted lirio pe sit on every other stone o f a pathway leading to the h ouse. An old washtub sits on i ts side, leaning against an o ld tree stump. Nestled inside t he tub is a geranium. There are many other i nteresting pieces placed in t his area. The front porch of t he house is decorated for the f all season and will be changed for the Christmas holidays. Alive tree is purchased for Christmas and then planted in the yard. Mother Nature has her hand in developing this setting by placing hanging moss in the branches of the oak trees, to give the area a look of the old South. The Yard of the Month doesnt have to be a perfectly manicured yard. Residents or property owners must be the major caretaker of the yard. The size of the yard or the appearance of the house is not of importance in selecting the Yard of the Month. The club looks for landscape design and use of plant and hardscape materials. If you know of a yard deserving of the award, call 452-1927. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 17, 2010Page 7B Custom Concrete Landscape Curbs Landscape Installation Sod Renovation Water Features Waterfalls Ponds385.0404 385.0404Custom Concrete Landscape Curbs Landscape Installation Sod Renovation Water Features Waterfalls PondsSUPPORTYOUR 385-3497HIGHLANDS COUNTYS OLDEST ESTABLISHED HEARING AID OFFICE130 S.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES Will F errells dastardly schemes c ontinue to succeed, with the a nimated Megamind stayi ng at the top of the box o ffice. The DreamWorks A nimation 3-D comedy, feat uring Ferrell as the voice of a super villain, made just o ver $30 million in its second w eek in theaters, according t o Sunday studio estimates. I ts now made nearly $90 m illion total. Megamind a lso features the voices of B rad Pitt, Tina Fey and Jonah H ill. Opening in second place is t he 20th Century Fox action t hriller Unstoppable, starr ing Denzel Washington and C hris Pine as railroad worke rs trying to stop a massive r unaway train. It made $23.5 m illion. The movie is based o n a 2001 Ohio incident in w hich a train carrying haza rdous cargo traveled 66 m iles without a crew. Last weeks No. 2 film, Due Date, fell to the third s pot with $15.5 million. The W arner Bros. comedy feat ures Robert Downey Jr. and Z ach Galifianakis as opposites stuck together on a cross-country road trip. Its now made $59 million in two weeks. Among the weekends other new releases, Skyline opened in fourth place with $11.7 million. The Universal Pictures sci-fi thriller depicts aliens invading and destroying Los Angeles. And Morning Glory, a Paramount comedy set in a network morning show starring Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton, opened at No. 5 with about $9.6 million. Anne Globe, head of worldwide marketing for DreamWorks Animation, said positive word of mouth helped Megamind remain on top. Its exciting because audiences are clearly responding very well to the movie, said Globe. This was a decided No. 1 again. We were only down 35 percent, which is a pretty terrific hold for the movie. But Megamind is the rare family movie in theaters these days, which also helps, said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. Next week, the feverishly anticipated first half of the Harry Potter finale, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, debuts. Up until Megamindthe marketplace was virtually devoid of any family films, Dergarabedian said. The Rrated films were dominating: You had Paranormal Activity 2,Saw 3-D, Jackass 3D.Then there was a plethora of adult-oriented dramas: Secretariat,The Social Network,Hereafter, all those films. Then there were movies for older audiences like Red. The fact that Megamind is in 3-D is also a draw to younger audiences, he said. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 17, 2010Page 11B DUE DATER2:15 4:15 7:15 9:15FOR COLOREDR GIRLS2:00 5:00 8:00MORNINGPG13GLORY2:00 4:30 7:00 9:30RED PG132:00 4:30 7:00 9:30SKYLINEPG132:15 4:15 7:15 9:15UNSTOPPABLEPG132:00 4:30 7:00 9:30 The NewFAIRMOUNTCINEMA63750 US 27 N.

Afew years ago, when my oldest child was beginning to write, my husband and I started the tradition of tucking packets of thank-you cards into their stockings. We explained that Santa must have given them the cards so they would have stationery to write thank-you notes to family and friends for the gifts they had received. The cards are a wonderful reminder to my children that they need to express their gratitude to those who have spent time and money to buy and send them a gift. Usually there are cards left over to cover thank-you notes at birthday time as well. Unfortunately, these days, not enough people even adults take the time to write a note of appreciation for presents they are given. I believe parents should encourage children to do this as soon as they are able to understand the concept. I hope my husband and I are instilling a lifelong habit in our children. Abby, can you help get the point across? Thankful Mom in Brunswick, Maine DearThankful Mom: Gladly. You are teaching your children an important lesson. Its a formality that started being ignored decades ago. Then, as years passed, it was a custom that was not just ignored, but many people forgot it existed. The result was that parents who hadnt been taught the social niceties did not teach them to their children. When I publish letters about thank-you notes, I invariably receive an avalanche of letters and e-mails from readers complaining that they are hurt and offended because they dont receive thank-you notes. Some individuals use texts and e-mails to acknowledge gifts. However, for most people a handwritten note is much more memorable. Thanking someone for a gif t, an invitation to a party or a kind deed in writing is important. While composing a letter may always be a chore to some people, there are occa sions when the written mes sage is the only proper means of communication. I t shows effort, and can become a keepsake. For those people who have diff iculty expressing their thoughts, my booklet How to Write Letters for All Occasions covers a few basic rules for acknowledging gifts, expressing sympa thy and accepting or declin ing an invitation. It can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $6 (U.S. funds), to Dea r Abby Letters Booklet, P.O Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Not everyone can write letters that are literary masterpieces, but for anyon e who wonders how to put in writing a brief, charming thank-you note, a letter expressing congratulations, a love letter or one that announces a broken engage ment my booklet will ser ve as a guide to those who hav e put off writing because they didnt know what to say, how to say it, or even how to begin. Because the season for exchanging gifts is nearly here, Thankful Mom, you r letter is an important and timely one.

Today there are vario us cooking oils used in c ooking for frying, stir fryi ng, sauteing, and in salad d ressings. And as you can i magine, there are good c ooking oils, those that a rent so healthy, and some t hat are downright dangero us. Cooking oils mostly come f rom vegetables. Youve s een them in the stores o live, corn, canola, soy, saff lower, avocado, sesame, s unflower, grape-seed, cott onseed, peanut, walnut, a lmond, coconut, hazelnut a nd more. Olive oil is among the h ealthiest of all the cooking o ils. This oil offers a good b alance of both monounsatur ated and polyunsaturated fats. I recommend regular olive oil for cooking; extra virgin olive oil for salads and other uncooked foods. Other healthy oils fall among the nut groups including coconut. Peanut and walnut oils both have high smoking points and are best used for high heat cooking. On the flip side are the oils that are considerably unhealthy. Canola oil shouldnt be used for human consumption because its a genetically developed plant from Canada that uses the rapeseed plant as its base; a known industrial oil used for machinery and such. The word canola comes from the words Canada and oil. The rapeseed plant thats used to create canola oil has been found to be toxic to humans and animals. The worst bad oil of course is any hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oil; these are cheap fats high in trans fats that wreak havoc in the body. These types of fats should be avoided at all costs. The best oils are a variety of oils, the ones that are expeller or cold pressed are the healthiest. (With the exception of any olive oil, all oils should be kept in the fridge to keep their delicate fatty acids intact.) Keep in mind smoke point when cooking and remember, extra virgin olive oil should only be used in its raw state, never cooked.
