By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Members of the engineering and landscape team who will be overseeing the Devane Park renovation were visibly taken aback during the Town Council's regular meeting Monday night. On the agenda to present a progress report on the project, which is scheduled to begin shortly after Jan. 1 and be completed by late June or July, they were met with suspicion and doubt in the form of sharp questions and an unwillingness on the part of council members to assume anything. The council asked for an in-depth explanation of the Florida Department of Transportation enhancement grant its origins and its ramifications and wanted to know if less money was spent on Devane Park could the leftover be used for another FDOTapproved project, like sidewalks on Green Dragon Drive. The creative team at the meeting, led by project manager Mike Morgan, were all on the implementation side of the renovation, not the financial, so they had trouble answering some of the questions. While they were not sure leftover funds would return to the city, for example, they thought it was possible. The money, dispersed by FDOT, actually comes from federal stimulus dollars. Projects are submitted as a whole and bid on as whole, with the low bidder awarded the contract. The design of the park was created by a local committee. The amount of the grant By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING The Highlands County Sheriff's Office is looking for a Sebring man who allegedly stabbed another man to death Friday. The exact address was being withheld by the HCSO, but in a press release on Monday, Assistant to Sheriff Susan Benton Kristian Ogg stated that upon arrival to a residence on Dolphin Drive in Sebring, deputies discovered a male subject who suffered from approximately 20 stab wounds. The unidentified victim required immediate medical attention, but Ogg said he died on the way to the hospital. The HCSO investigators have named Alfredo Alvareze, an illegal immigrant, as the suspect, according to the press release.

"I am comfortable with t he day-to-day operations of bo th the police and fire depa rtment at this point. Let's ta ke that and calm down an d approach this in a ration al way," Behrens said. "This is a very dangerous arrang ement. There is no rush to appoint a public safety dire ctor at this point." "My point is following directions. That didn't happen," said Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray. Gray made it clear at the last city mee ting that she did not like t he way that Behrens made t he decision to promote Cmd r. Mike Rowan to police chi ef and Project Manager Mar ia Sutherland to assistant ci ty manager. Mayor Sharon Schuler al so stressed that she was n ot happy with Behrens'act. "The decisions you ma de in such a short amount of time has caused us a lot of stress. The whole issue is th at the city manager did not ta ke direction set by our budge t. By the decision you mad e, you have caused the counci l a lot of stress. Now we sit he re and make the decision of if we are going forward wi th what our plans will be ," Schuler stated. By city charter, even if t he council was to begin accep ting applications, it wou ld ultimately be Behrens dec ision to hire a new safe ty director.

While their long-term forecast remained rosy, the economists from the Legislature and Gov. Charlie Crist's office were gloomier about the immediate future than in July when they last updated their economic estimate. They now are forecasting unemployment rates will remain at or near 11.8 percent and the housing market will stay depressed for longer than anticipated. That's expected to reduce state revenues, which may widen a $2.5 billion budget gap earlier predicted for the next budget year. The outlook is much more optimistic beyond the next couple years. The state now has about 7.2 million jobs, but that's expected to increase to at least 7.7 million by the 2013-14 fiscal year and to nearly 8.3 million seven years from now in 2017-18. The economists foresee a rebound to pre-recession prosperity, but it's going to take a bit longer. "Our belief is that there is nothing that has changed about Florida, its attraction to other states and other countries and that we're slowly heading back to that same pace," sa id Amy Baker, coordinator of t he Legislature's Office of Economic an d Demographic Research. "Over t he long run there's still significa nt growth in our forecast." The job growth is expected to come from that economic reboun d even if the state does nothing more to stimulate employment.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Students at Heartland Christian School received a warm message from a special speaker last week. Col. Don Ballard visited the school on Friday leaving the students and faculty with words of wisdom and strength. Ballard served in the United States Navy from 1965-1969 as a 2nd class petty officer. After his Navy service, Ballard joined the Army National Guard in 1973 and served until 2000. Ballard earned the Medal of Honor in 1968 when he treated two Marines that were suffering from heat exhaustion. Ballard and his group were attacked by North Vietnamese Army. Ballard attempted to protect the wounded Marines and the others when a grenade landed nearby by jumping on top of the grenade. Luckily, it failed to explode. Ballard then quickly threw the grenade out of range and continued to treat the wounded. "Col. Ballard was in town to visit and be a part of the Memorial wall that's up at the Lakeshore Mall. We were happy that we grabbed the opportunity to have him to stop by for a little while and speak to the students," said Hal Graves. Graves is the high school history and middle school current events instructor and was excited that the students were able to meet Ballard. "He's a Medal of Honor recipient and a brave man. The students learned a lot from him," Graves said.

1. Who decided to make T hanksgiving a national holiday?In the mid-1800s Sarah J. Hale, a p oet and editor, lobbyed for a national T hanksgiving holiday. But it wasn't u ntil 1863, when President Abraham L incoln looking to unite the nation d uring the Civil War gave his T hanksgiving Proclamation. Lincoln d eclared the last Thursday in N ovember a day of thanksgiving.2. How much turkey do A mericans eat on Thanksgiving?More than 45 million turkeys ( about 535 million pounds) are c ooked and eaten on the h oliday.3. How much turkey should I buy f or Thanksgiving dinner?For generous servings and lefto vers, Butterball recommends: 1 to 11/2pounds per person when b uying a fresh or frozen whole turkey. 11/2to 2 pounds per person for a f rozen stuffed turkey. 3/4pound per person for a bonei n breast of turkey. 1/2pound per person for a bonel ess turkey roast or a boneless breast o f turkey roast.4. How can I find the best-tasting t urkey?Age is a determining factor in taste. A turkey younger than 16 weeks is c alled a fryer, and a "young roaster" is 5 t o 7 months old. Ayearling is just over a year old. Any bird 15 months or older i s considered mature. Since old females g enerally have tough meat, hens are e aten when they are young and small. B ut young male birds generally have s tringy meat, so older, large males are p referred.5. What is the best way to thaw a f rozen turkey?The best and safest way to defrost a t urkey is to thaw it in the refrigerator. N ever thaw a turkey at room temperat ure. Put the turkey in its original w rapping on a shallow baking sheet in t he refrigerator. The following chart p rovides good guidelines for thawing t imes in the refrigerator.6. How do I know when the turkey is done?The turkey is done when the meat thermometer reaches 180 degrees F deep in the thigh and 170 degrees in the breast. Juices should be clear, not reddish-pink, when the thigh muscle is pierced. Pop-up timers provide a good indication, but you should always use a meat thermometer to confirm that the turkey is done. Astuffed turkey is done when the meat thermometer reaches 160 degrees F in the center of the stuffing.7.How do I carve a turkey?Turkey carving is easy, with the right tools and technique.8. Besides the meat, what parts of a turkey can be used?Amature turkey has about 3,500 feathers, most of which are composted or disposed of. But some are used for such things as American Indian costumes and pen quills. It has even been reported that Big Bird's costume on "Sesame Street" is made of turkey feathers. Turkey feather down is also used to make pillows. Giblets are the edible internal parts of a turkey, including the gizzard, heart, liver and neck. They are usually removed, placed into a plastic bag and reinserted into the body cavity. Many people, particularly in the South, use the giblets to make gravy. As for the turkey's skin, it can be tanned and used for cowboy boots, belts and other accessories.9. Does turkey really make you sleepy?After a big meal of turkey and trimmings, most people want to nap. Studies have associated the essential amino acid L-tryptophan, a natural sedative, with drowsiness. Although L-tryptophan occurs naturally in turkey, you would have to eat a lot on an empty stomach with no other protein for it to make you sleepy. If you get drowsy after a big turkey dinner, the culprit is probably your high carbohydrate intake as the blood rushes from your brain to your stomach to help digest the large meal.10. How should I store my leftovers?Within two hours after roasting, remove the stuffing from the turkey and carve the meat off the bones. Chill the leftover meat in the refrigerator before wrapping for storage. For refrigerator storage, wrap the turkey and stuffing separately, and eat them within three days. If you're storing leftovers in the freezer, wrap the turkey and stuffing separately in heavy foil, freezer wrap or freezer bags. For best flavor, eat the stuffing within a month and the turkey within two months.11. How can I use the leftovers?The five most popular ways to serve leftover Thanksgiving turkey are: Sandwich Soup or stew Casserole Stir-fry Salad12. What states produce the most turkeys?Minnesota, Iowa, North Carolina and California are the leading turkey producers, and most states have at least one major operation.13. Where do turkeys come from?Turkeys originated in North and Central America and are believed to have been around for more than 10 million years.14. How did the turkey get its name?There are several theories on the origin. Some believe that Christoph er Columbus thought he had discovere d a land connected to India and that t he bird was some kind of peacock, so he called it tuka, which is peacock in Tamil, an Indian language. Others believe it got its name from the American Indian word for turkey, f irkee. Others theorize that it got its name from the noise it makes when scared: "turk, turk, turk."15. Can turkeys fly? What othe r special traits do they have?Turkeys raised on turkey farms can't fly because they're too fat and weak. But wild turkeys can fly for short distances at up to 55 mph a nd can run at speeds up to 25 mph Turkeys have great hearing, but no external ears. They can also see in color, and a wide field of vision (about 270 degrees), which makes sneaking up on them difficult. 16. Is it true th at the turkey was considered for the national symbol of th e United States?Benjamin Franklin argued passionately on behalf of the turkey and wa s unhappy when the bald eagle was chosen instead. In a lette r to his daughter, he said the ba ld eagle had "bad moral character" and the turkey "is a much more respectable bird, and with al a true original native of America ." www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 24, 2010Page 3A Ask us about DirecTV Plasma,HGTV,Smart Energy,Picture Wizard,Infinite Sound$195Christmas GreenModel # U2630Bags with Docking Systems,Plastic Bag Support,Power Switch on Handle, Headlight 50Ž TV $39932ŽDigital Tuner Photo Frame Mode PC Input HDTV Invisible Speakers32Ž LCD MODEL #32C100 $59942ŽPicture Wizard,Smart Energy, Auto Turning,Freeze FrameMODEL #LG42P535042Ž TV $9993D Ready Projection HDTV60Ž DLP MODEL #WD60638 $560.7 cu.ft Capacity,700 Watts, Glass Turntable,10 Power Levels, Cooking Guide,Time Cook I and II, Child LockHOTPOINT REM25SJ$99Electronic Touch Controls,1 cu.ft.

Nor was I very g ood at it. The wife was so u nhappy with my lack of p rogress, she finally decided t o give me a ridiculously s mall stipend to buy E VERYTHING we'd need f or dinner." "That went better?" "Not exactly. The most b asic elements cranberr ies, pumpkin pie filling, r olls and so on ate up my entire budget. I didn't panic though. One grocery store had a promotion in which the first 20 customers on Thanksgiving morning would get free turkeys." "Wonderful!" "That's what I thought. I slept in front of the store all night. There were a couple dozen people, but I snagged the 20th spot. But wouldn't you know they ran out of turkeys by the time they handed out 15! I was in trouble now, so I grabbed our overburdened credit card and went to every grocery store in town but not one of them had a turkey!" "You had no turkey on Thanksgiving Day!" "The wife was going to brain me good! I was mighty down. As I said, we'd been struggling financially all year. The unemployment rate looked like it would never go down. Our country is broke and getting broker. Our competitors, such as China, are rising. All I could think about were negative things." "That is understandable." "Then, as I was driving home, a broken-down van was blocking the road. My first impulse was to honk and curse, but then I saw an old man behind the wheel. I parked my car and knocked on his door. He told me his truck had stalled and he ran the battery down trying to start it. He said he called for help but it never came that his cell phone died and he'd been sitting there for two hours." "It's hard to get help on a holiday." "It was freezing cold in his van and he had no coat, so I gave him mine. Then I pushed his van off the road. I know a few things about old trucks and used my jumper cables to get his truck running. You never saw a happier man. It made me feel pretty good I completely forgot my worries." "You did a wonderful thing." "Well, it got me thinking. We're going to be all right. Our country has faced big problems before. We've solved them before. We just need to reach out to each other a little more. We need to look our problems dead in the eye and face them down, and I know we will!" "That's why it was the best Thanksgiving ever?" "Sort of. See, the old man told me he owns a grocery store and was in a hurry to get to the store with five fresh turkeys for a free giveaway when ..."

Y ou should know your accuser, and i f it is your neighbor, y ou should talk to t hem about it, but t he county feels that a nonymous comp laints to code e nforcement should c ontinue.This attitude is both confusi ng and possibly detrimental to t he sense of community that H ighlands County real estate a gents strive to promote in t heir literature. Citizen Joe Eck and C ommissioner Guy Maxcy, w ho has since left the board, a sked to add the names of the c omplainants to code enforcem ent documents during a r ecent update of the county c ode enforcing the sound comp laints. Both commissioner Barbara S tewart and Code Enforcement S upervisor Linda Conrad a rgued against eliminating a nonymous code enforcement c omplaints, but their argum ents may be giving citizens a f alse sense of security. Stewart and Conrad both stated that if the names of the complainants were revealed, it might anger those accused, and that it might also cut down on the amount of complaints coming into code enforcement. Both gave examples of how an angry neighbor could retaliate against a complainer, and Stewart even told one story about how four sheriff vehicles had to be called out for one complaint because of a threat of violence. Both Stewart and Conrad stated that keeping the names anonymous protected complainers, and kept them safe. But not revealing your name does not protect you from being discovered as a complainant. It is a simple matter to request other public records, such as phone logs, to show who called in and when. So, while thinking that you were able to tattle on your neighbor during a phone call protects you, that is not actually the case. Additionally, anonymous complaints are not part of the spirit of the U.S. Bill of Rights, which says you have a right to face your accuser if the case goes to court. Something you cannot do if the complaint is anonymous. Now, we understand that part of police work is to protect some informants in order to do the job, but can you really compare drug dealing with an overgrown yard? Certain police records are protected by law, where as Highlands County Code Enforcement in Florida does not have that luxury. Anonymous complaints can also breed distrust among neighbors who ask "Who is complaining? Could it be the old couple across the street, or is it the single mother next door? Maybe, it's those new folks who just moved in up the street." That does not bode well for the block Christmas party. The thought that you should tattle on your neighbor anonymously is not new. Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot used that method a lot. In fact, they encouraged it motivate by fear and suspicion. Joe Eck had it right when he said he didn't mind giving his name if someone was doing wrong, and we agree with Mr. Eck, that standing up for what is right is the only way to go, but hiding behind proposed anonymous call ins just discourages a sense of community. Additionally, Mr. Eck is also the kind of guy who would go mow the grass for a single mother or the elderly if they needed a helping hand. The county should really reconsider their policy for accepting anonymous complaints, especially if they wish to encourage Highlands County's sense of community. Government should be on our side, openly and honestly, not secretly trying to catch us not mowing our yard.

Why? Because the truth hurts. Out of the several letters written in response to my recent NewsSun "Letter to the Editor," 11/10/2010, only one person signed his name. The others hid behind the anonymity of an alias. Well, if I were a Republican I too would be ashamed to sign my name. But being on the side of truth, justice and the American way, and not ashamed to be a Democrat, I sign my letters. Obviously Republicans are againstfreedom of speech, the very basis of a democracy. One did surprise me by agreeing that Rick Scott "incurred the largest Medicare fraud in history." Yet he voted for him. One of the older letters I have received was this one "you're sick, you should see a doctor." Unsigned, of course. My response, in a "Letter to the Editor," was "It's obvious from your note that you're a Republican." In that 11/10/2010 letter I wrote that George Bush did not come out prior to the election to stump for any candidate because it would have been "The Kiss of Death," yet just a few days after the election he crawled out from that rock he was hiding under with a book he had supposedly written. Here's a guy who could barely read the speeches written for him by Carl Rove and Michael Gerson and I'm supposed to believe that he wrote a book? If there is anyone who believes that Bush wrote it I have a bridge in New York City between Manhattan and Brooklyn that's for sale. Cheap.

This arrival was awesome. Jack Hegarty SebringNovember is Lung Cancer Awareness MonthEditor: November is International Lung Cancer Awareness Month. The official color of lung cancer awareness is clear, but it might as well be invisible to most Americans. I am one of those Americans that is not invisible. I am a six-month lung cancer survivor. Lung cancer takes more lives each year than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined. But according to a study conducted by the National Lung Cancer Partnership, 80 percent of respondents didn't know that lung cancer was the No. 1 cancer killer in the United States. Eighty-eight percent of respondents didn't know that radon, a colorless, odorless natural gas, is the second leading cause of lung cancer, and only 12 percent of respondents said they knew the signs and symptoms of lung cancer. When awareness is low, people are less likely to understand and pay attention to symptoms, take measures to protect their health and discuss their risks with their doctor. I strongly urge everyone in Highlands County to learn more about this devastating disease and talk with their doctors about their own risk For more information about lung cancer please vis it www.nationallungcancerpar tnership.org. Grace Plan ts Sebrin g O'Leary's column is right onEditor: Congratulations to Dale O'Leary's article on "Big Government vs Free People ." Excellent word smything to describe how all free people in this most magnificant country that we call the "Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave" need to stand up for liberty. We mus t all wake up now to see how we can band together for freedom to fight (through peaceful non-violance) against any person or group that wants to take us under their rule as a dictatorship o r totalatarian government (communists). Please remember the following inspirational words from one of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson: "Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal right s of others. I do not add with in the limits of the law, because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights o f the individual." Since I am related (on my father's mother's side) to th e last signer of the "Declaration of Independence," Matthew Thornton, let us all pledge together with the words in the last sentence of the "Declaration" ... "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of devine Providence, we mutu ally pledge to each other ou r Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."

With a heav y heart, I have made the decision to leave the Hammock. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who helped make us a success over the years, including our local residents campers, winter visitors and friends from neighboring counties. They are some of the best fish fry eaters I hav e ever seen. I also would like to express how much I have enjoyed working with the park rangers and volunteers We should all appreciate the hard work they do in helpin g to preserve such a place of beauty. Most of all, I would like to thank Peter Anderson. Peter was park manager at Highlands Hammock for many years and was instrumental in the success of my business. Without his fairmindedness and genuine con cern, I would never have made it over the past five years. So with all endings, come new beginnings. I am opening a small BBQ business o n Lakeview in the old Rib Masters building, hopefully in December and yes, I will be serving my Wild Orange Ice Cream and Pie. I would be honored if you stop by, even to just say hi. On a final note, I would urge you to continue to use the park. It is a precious gif t given to us to enjoy. I know I will. Nancy L.

Page 6ANews-SunWednesday, November 24, 2010www.newssun.com Associated PressATLANTA Despite tough talk o n the Internet, there was little if a ny indication of a passenger revolt a t many major U.S. airports, with v ery few people declining the X-ray s can that can peer through their c lothes. Those who refuse the m achines are subject to a pat-down s earch that includes the crotch and c hest. Many travelers said that the scans a nd the pat-down were not much of a n inconvenience, and that the s tepped-up measures made them f eel safer and were, in any case, u navoidable. "Whatever keeps the country s afe, I just don't have a problem w ith," Leah Martin, 50, of Houston, s aid as she waited Monday to go t hrough security at the Atlanta airp ort. At New York's LaGuardia A irport early Tuesday, Jeannine St. A mand got a pat-down in front of h er husband and two children. The 4 5-year-old from Fredericton, New B runswick, Canada, figured she got o ne because the underwire of her b ra tripped the metal detector. "It's hard to remember all the r estrictions. Next time, I'll wear a d ifferent bra," she said. She opted to have the pat-down i n public rather than private and s aid it was professional and done by a female agent. "She tells you ahead of time what s he is going to do, which is a good t hing because that could be awkw ard," St. Amand said. Transportation Security A dministration chief John Pistole p leaded with Thanksgiving travele rs for understanding and urged t hem not to boycott full-body scans o n Wednesday. It would only snarl w hat is already one of the busiest, m ost stressful flying days of the and w ould only "tie up people who want t o go home and see their loved o nes," he said. "We all wish we lived in a world w here security procedures at airp orts weren't necessary," he said, but that just isn't the case." He noted the alleged attempt by a N igerian with explosives in his u nderwear to bring down a plane o ver Detroit last Christmas. About two-thirds of Americans support using the full-body scanners to increase security, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll published Tuesday. But half of the 514 adults surveyed by phone said the more rigorous pat-downs go too far. At Chicago's O'Hare Airport, Gehno Sanchez, a 38-year-old from San Francisco who works in marketing, said he doesn't mind the full-body scans. "I mean, they may make you feel like a criminal for a minute, but I'd rather do that than someone touching me," he said. Aloosely organized Internet campaign is urging people to refuse the scans on Wednesday in what is being called National Opt-Out Day. The extra time needed to pat down people could cause a cascade of delays at dozens of major airports, including those in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Atlanta. "Just one or two recalcitrant passengers at an airport is all it takes to cause huge delays," said Paul Ruden, a spokesman for the American Society of Travel Agents, which has warned its more than 8,000 members about delays. "It doesn't take much to mess things up anyway." Most who don't like the screenings just grumble but don't really cause a big fuss, at least not that Cris Soulia, a TSAofficer in San Diego and president of a local union, has heard or seen. "We're not here groping people. We're not here molesting people. We're checking them for items and explosives. And yes, explosives can be hidden in the groin area," she said. More than 400 imaging units are being used at about 70 airports. Since the new procedures began Nov. 1, 34 million travelers have gone through checkpoints and less than 3 percent are patted down, according to the TSA. At the White House, press secretary Robert Gibbs said the government is "desperately" trying to balance security and privacy and will take the public's concerns and complaints into account as it evaluates the new, more stringent boarding checks. The American Civil Liberties Union has received more than 600 complaints over three weeks from passengers who say they were subjected to humiliating pat-downs at U.S. airports, and the pace is accelerating, according to ACLU legislative counsel Christopher Calabrese. "It really drives home how invasive it is and unhappy they are," he said. Ricky D. McCoy, a TSAscreener and president of a union local in Illinois and Wisconsin, said the atmosphere has changed in the past two weeks for officers in his region. Since word of the pat-downs hit the headlines, officers have been punched, pushed or shoved s ix times after they explained wh at would be happening, McCoy said "We have major problem s because basically TSAnever ed ucated the public on what was goin g on," he said. "Our agency pret ty much just threw the new sear ch techniques out there." Stories of alleged heavy-hand ed treatment by TSAagents captur ed people's imagination. Abladder cancer survivor fro m Michigan who wears a bag that co llects his urine said its conten ts spilled on his clothing after a sec urity agent at a Detroit airport patt ed him down roughly. Tom Sawyer, a 61-year-o ld retired special education teache r, said the Nov. 7 experience left hi m in tears. "I was absolutely humilia ted. I couldn't even speak," he to ld MSNBC.com. During an appearance on CB S, the TSA's Pistole expressed "gre at concern over anybody who fee ls like they have not been treat ed properly or had something emba rrassing" happen. Avideo showing a shirtle ss young boy resisting a pat-down at Salt Lake City's airport has becom e a YouTube sensation and led to demands for an investigation fro m Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, an outspoken critic of TSAscreenin g methods. The video of the uniden tified boy was shot Friday by a bystander with a cell phone. The TSAsaid in a blog postin g that nobody has to disrobe at an a irport checkpoint apart from remo ving shoes and jackets. According to the TSA, the boy was bein g searched because he triggered an alarm inside a metal detector, an d his father removed the youngster 's shirt to speed up the screening. The boycott campaign w as launched Nov. 8 by Bri an Sodergren, who lives in Ashbur n, Va., and works in the health ca re industry. "I just don't think the gover nment has the right to look und er people's clothes with no reasonab le cause, no suspicion other than pu rchasing a plane ticket," he said in an interview with The Associat ed Press.

That's why they go e verywhere we go," said M ike Eubank, 51, of O verland Park, Kan., who p iles the dogs, his wife and t hree kids into a motorhome f or trips to a lake where E ubank keeps a boat. Nearly a quarter of pet o wners have taken a vacation w ith their animals in the last t wo years, according to an A ssociated PressP etside.com poll conducted b y GfK Roper Public Affairs a nd Corporate C ommunications. Seventy-five percent found t he trip more enjoyable than s tressful. Randall Balmer, 56, of W oodbury, Conn., considers t he best part of his vacations p laying with his 12-year-old y ellow Lab, throwing rocks a nd watching Dakota chase t hem. The worst part? Watching D akota get wet, then get in t he car. "He's just kind of part of t he family. We like to have h im with us," Balmer said, e ven if Dakota is getting too o ld for the trips. Although more hotel c hains now allow pets, 70 p ercent of those who vacat ioned with their pets recentl y said they have stayed with r elatives, 55 percent with f riends and 52 percent in a h otel. Four in 10 said they h ave taken their pet to a c ampsite and 34 percent took an RVtrip. Dog owners (31 percent) were more apt than cat owners (19 percent) to bring their pets along, and among those who have only cats, only 7 percent included them in trips. Karen Miles, 66, of Altoona, Wis., takes both. Fletcher, a pug-dachshund mix, and Snuffleupagus, a Himalayan cat, make the trip when she and her family hook up their trailer and go camping or visiting, usually about twice a month. Both pets travel well and just need bowls, food, toys and a litter box for Snuffy, Miles said. Most of those who have had a good experience traveling with their pet plan to do it again. But such dedicated pet-vacationers are a rare breed: Just 22 percent of all pet owners said they were extremely or very likely to include their pet in a future vacation. Seventy-four percent of cat owners said they were not at all likely to take their pet along. Hotels and campgrounds have changed a lot in the last five or 10 years, so that traveling with pets can be as luxurious as any owner wants it. At The Peninsula Beverly Hills, dogs are treated to ultrasuede beds, a monogrammed towel, a bowl, designer water and Iams dog food, spokeswoman Sharon Boorstin said. Abellman will walk your dog, sit your dog or arrange a massage, training, grooming, transportation or appointment with a vet. There is also a room service doggie menu that includes an aperitif called a "tail shakin'not stirred martini" and a disclaimer: "No hooch for your pooch." (The martini uses beef bullion.) Based on registration forms, between 55 percent and 60 percent of campers at Kampgrounds of America Inc., the largest network of campgrounds in North America, travel with pets, said spokesman Mike Gast. That's up from around 45 percent eight years ago. "Pets are something people aren't willing any more to leave home without," he said. Peter Furgis, 74, of West Jordan, Utah, said trips are more fun with his dog Charlie, "just like everything else is more enjoyable." Furgis has a cabin in Wyoming and heads there often with Charlie, a 6-yearold Yorkshire Terrier. But he concedes his travels with Charlie aren't always easy. "Last time I went it was in July and quite hot," Furgis said. "It was quite inconvenient. I couldn't leave him in the truck and we had to stop at drive-ins to eat. We were both hot." Traveling with Hercules, a mixed Pekinese and poodle, added some stress to Vickie Lojek's last car trip because she wanted to impress her inlaws and it required a bit more coordination and time. Lojek, of Richmond, Va., wanted Hercules to be a compatible guest, not a "barking knucklehead." In the end, Hercules was a big hit with all three generations at the family reunion and he'll be more than welcome on the family's next trip, Lojek said. Poll: Pets make cut on family trips MCTphoto Arecent poll showed that 34 percent of people who vacation with their pets took them on an RVtrip. Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A woman found dead in her home along with her three young children had been in court four days earlier seeking child support from her slain 6-year-old twins' father, who has a lengthy criminal record, court records show. Ajudge last Tuesday signed a final order requiring Antonio L. Anthony to pay $307 per month plus retroactive child support of $22,925 to 27-year-old Brandi Peters. Peters was found dead Saturday along with twins Tamiyah and Taniyah Peters and her 3year-old son, Joyante Segura, at their Tallahassee home just a few miles from the Florida Capitol. No one has been charged and police say all four deaths are considered homicides. Police said Monday that they have spoken to the father of the twins and the boy's father, Henry Segura Jr. Peters also had obtained a final order in August f or $744.47 per month an d $20,100 in retroactive chi ld support from Segura Jr. Anthony, 44, who has a handgun tattooed on his le ft arm, has served three priso n terms in the past 20 year s, according Flori da Department of Correctio ns records. He most recent ly was released in May 200 9 after serving four years o n two counts of cocaine po ssession and grand theft of a motor vehicle. His pri or offenses were for aggrava ted assault with a weapo n and armed burglary. Anthony has no loc al telephone listing and cou ld not be reached for com ment.

e rty and corporate income tax c uts, state budget reductions a nd the repeal of government r egulations to reach his more m odest 700,000-job goal. Aspokesman for the R epublican governor-elect d id not immediately respond t o an e-mail seeking comm ent. The economists'new forec ast actually calls for slightly f ewer jobs than the 8.32 mill ion they had predicted in J uly for 2017-18. They also said the unemp loyment rate will remain about 11.8 percent through the first quarter of 2011 before dropping to 11.6 percent. That's a quarter later than previously forecast. As before, they still expect the jobless rate to finally drop below 10 percent in the third quarter of 2012. It's expected to continue falling until it reaches 5.5 percent in 201920. The state outlook is based on a national forecast the economists made last week except for the housing market, which is worse in Florida due in part to a high foreclosure rate that keeps dumping more homes on the market. "We are flat out No. 1 in terms of the shadow inventory we need to get rid of," Baker said. The state forecast will serve as the basis for a general revenue estimate due next month for use in Scott's first budget request to lawmakers early next year. The revenue estimate doesn't include potential tax losses from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Baker said that won't be factored in until some time after Scott's Jan. 4 inauguration.

According to Florida Police Benevolent Association Representative Jack Soule, 24 of the 28 employees at the police department signed a petition opposing a safety director. "I have the names here, and I will give that to the clerk. But I don't think that you have done your homework on this," Soule said. "Some research was supposed to be done, was there ever an RFPdeveloped?" "No," Mayor Schuler responded. "If no one really knows what the cost savings is, why are we even advertising?" Soule asked. "We have a majority vote against doing this for the same reason," said Avon Park Fire Department Lt. Steve Kempe. Other council members wanted to stress that they supported the idea of a safety director because they were told there would be a savings to the budget, but now those numbers were in question. Trying to get consensus of which way the council wanted staff to proceed, Schuler asked for direction, but got varying responses from her peers. "I don't care one way or the other," Gray responde d. But Terry Heston an d Aljoe Hinson pressed f or solid numbers before a decision was made. "My whole thing w as from the financial point of view," said Heston. "A re we putting this position in place to save us money? I have heard conflicting st ories about how much th at is." "We were told by t he interim city manag er (Maria Sutherland) and b y our chief financial offic er (Renee Green) that w e would save money. I ha ve heard no other numbers o n this, so I am sticking wi th what we were told," Gr ay said. "This was supposed to save us money. We we re given all those figures, b ut from what I hear now, tho se figures were not realistic ," Hinson said. "I would like to know t he real numbers. I have hea rd $102,000, $48,000 an d $16,000 today. I would li ke to know the real numbe rs before the decision is made," Heston said. Behrens promised to return to the council aft er the first of the year wi th numbers from the city 's finance department. Continued from page 1A Continued from page 1A h ad some council members upset. They f elt $750,000 was a high price to pay for a public park restoration, and quest ioned why so much money was needed. The project leaders representing F DOTand AJAX Paving, the overseeing c ompany said everything but the oak t rees and gazebo would be removed f rom the circle. Areas where poor soil h as hindered grass growth will be s kimmed off and top soil brought in. The gazebo will be rebuilt with a h igher roof and brick facing. The gazeb o's ceiling will be cypress tongue-andg roove construction. Aramp will be added for wheelchair a ccess. New electrical and water lines, i ncluding irrigation, will be installed. Native plants and Florida-friendly p lants, like live oak, magnolias, lantana, I ndian hawthorne, miniature firebush, c repe myrtle and sable palms will be u sed. The park will be re-sodded. Existing sidewalks will be replaced a nd a new slightly wavy 10 foot-wide w alk will be installed around the p erimeter. Anew well is included in the budget, b ecause the existing screen well is elde rly and unreliable. The subject of the well brought a c hallenge from the council, especially w hen the creative team suggested a new w ell wasn't needed. There was a sharp difference of opini on over the use of roofing shingles, w ith most council members preferring m etal. Town Attorney Bert Harris pushed the e ngineers to predict the gazebo's life s pan, as did Council Member Ray R oyce. Morgan said high-quality materials w ere to be used so the park and gazebo w ould be durable and low maintenance. Harris was also concerned over the lack of specific detail. "Let's not go any further until we know more. I don't see how we have enough to agree with now," he said Ultimately, the council demanded more details and control over choices. Morgan told the council he appreciated the input, saying it was the people of Lake Placid who would live with the park, and he and his team wanted to build a place they would use.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAdd another title to the "City of Champions" as the Avon Park Mitey Mites survived by far their biggest test of the season to claim the Mid Florida Football and Cheer Conference Super Bowl Championship with a 26-25, overtime, nail-biting win. The li'l Red Devils, coached by Reggie Knighten, had gone through the regular season unbeaten and unscored upon. Neither of those stats changed during their run through the Sunshine District play as they topped DeSoto 33-0 and Sebring 70. It wasn't until the Western Conference title game in Tampa on Saturday, Nov. 13 that a team reached the end zone against Avon Park. And even then, it was a lone touchdown, and a failed extra point in the 13-6 win over Child's Park. But this past Saturday had them pitted against the CFAAChargers, the defending Super Bowl champions on a 27-game win streak. The Devils got on the board first, but saw the Chargers soon tie it at 6-6, to set in motion a back and forth affair that would push both teams to the best of their abilities. CFAAwould then take a 12-6 lead, but a Terran ce Butler touchdown an d Malcolm Dewberry ext ra point put Avon Park up 1 312 at the half. Butler would then exten d the lead, opening the secon d half by returning the kick o ff all the way for a score, b ut the Chargers struck rig ht back to tie it up at 19-19. From there, the defens es stepped it up, surviv ed scares and sent the gam e into overtime, with ea ch team getting the ball at t he 10 and having four plays to score. CFAAmade the most of their opportunity, getting t he go-ahead touchdown, but t he Devil defense made it s' biggest stand of the da y, stuffing the extra-poi nt attempt. That would prove to be the key moment of the gam e as, soon-to-be game MV P, Butler then scored on Avo n Park's first play to tie it, an d SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, November 24, 2010NASCAR This WeekPage 3 B Courtesy photo The Flag Thunderbolts, coached by Jamie Solis, took first place in the Classic Division during the MFFCC Cheer Competition held in Lakeland on Saturday, Oct. 6.

Sebring Youth Cheer hopes to be Atlanta bound And Another Thing... Dan Hoehne FHSAA.comGAINESVILLE The Florida High School Athletic Association Board of Directors voted today to create a rural classification in most sanctioned team sports, and to increase the number of classifications in sanctioned team sports. The reclassification plan for football renames Classes 1Aand 1B to reflect the new 1Arural and 1Aurban designations. Tentative districts will be available online in December, allowing for final Board of Directors approval of appeals during the January 2011 meeting. In baseball, basketball, softball and girls volleyball, the existing six-class structure was augmented b y Class 7Aand the rural cla ssification. Boys and girls socc er added Class 7Afor a tot al of six classifications. "When the FHSAAorig inally went up to six class ifications in team sports in 1999, we had 517 memb er schools, with 480 of tho se playing team sports.No w that we have 670 memb er schools and 650 of those in team sports, the number of teams in individual distric ts is too large," sa id Executive Director Rog er Dearing."Moving to eig ht classifications allows f or fewer teams in each di strict, which allows for mo re flexibility in scheduling f or the season."

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comWorking through the Bill Jarrett Tip-Off Tournament last week, Princeton Harris saw his Blue Streak squad without key members still partaking in the football season, and yet his young, inexperienced squad pulled together to get a win over Clewiston. Harris had his full squad together Monday night, though with a minimal amount of practice time, to face a strong Haines City Hornet team that had topped Avon Park for the Tip-Off title. And while the 69-60 loss may have been expected, considering the circumstances, Harris was more than pleased with what he saw. "You almost couldn't tell the football players had just gotten back," he said. "They stepped right in and played well." That was, of course, after the Hornets had flown out to a 21-4 lead and had gotten the home crowd buzzing. Sebring cagers push Hornets See STREAKS, page 4B Haines City69Sebring60 The writing had been on t he wall for a few weeks, e ver since it had become o bvious that head coach B rad Childress had lost the M innesota locker room. But for all the bold talk f rom Viking players saying t hey would win despite the c oach they despised, they d idn't do much to back it up. Save for a comeback win o ver a bad Arizona team, the l ast few weeks have seen M innesota get beaten down b y division rivals Chicago a nd Green Bay, turning in l istless and underwhelming p erformances. And so Childress has been f ired, as of Monday, with d efensive coordinator Leslie F razier promoted to the top j ob, for the time being. But it's a tough spot F razier finds himself in. At 3-7, the Vikings are all b ut out of any chance of gett ing into the playoffs, and w hile Brett Favre is still able t o take the field, despite n umerous injuries, lately that a ll he seems to be able to do take the field. And yet, with a fantastic p erformance in that Arizona g ame, and with his main w eapon, Sidney Rice, just n ow coming back into the f old, it would seem he gives t he team its'best chance to w in each week though t hat's not necessarily saying m uch. But it must be tempting to s ay, with the season going n owhere and with Favre gett ing more and more battered a s the losses pile up, to look t oward the future. Send Brett home, give him h is release and turn the ball o ver to Tarvaris Jackson, M innesota's "future" quart erback for a few seasons n ow. It would seem time to f inally find out how much of a future he has as the signal c aller, so the Vikings know b est how to proceed for c oming seasons. That, however, would Vikings put Frazier in tough spot See FRAZIER, p a g e 4B News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Faviannette Cotte's late-game, long-distance connections got the Lady Devils close, but not quite over the hump of Lakeland Monday night. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThey made a push at the end, but the A von Park girls basketball team couldn't q uite get past a strong Lakeland team at h ome Monday night in a 67-64 loss. "It was good competition, but that was a beatable team," head coach Paulette Daley said. "We missed some assignments and didn't play to our potential." But they played well enough to stay within range of the Lady Dreadnaughts, and a long-range display nearly brought them back. Faviannette Cotte heated up from b eyond the arc to get the Red Devils on the b rink, but Lakeland held on and escaped A von Park with the win. "She nearly brought us back toward the e nd, hitting quite a few threes," Daley said. She's really turned it around for us with h er outside shooting. She got us close and w e had our opportunities.

www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 24, 2010Page 3B By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week HOMESTEAD, Fla. „ Kevin Harvick doesnt want to see the Chase format change. He wants to see the Sprint Cup schedule change. Id like to see a little bit more diversity in the race tracks,Ž he said. I dont think the last 10 weeks should be the same tracks over and over and over again. I think it should rotate around. I think that would help particular race markets get better. You have it end at different places, have it start at different places. Maybe you go to some of the same tracks, but I think a different 10 weeks, even a road course at the end of the year, would put that full diversity, I guess you could say, on your champion to getting to all the different styles of tracks.Ž Speechless „ If Foster Gillett meant to quiet rumors regarding the future of Richard Petty Motorsports, this wasnt the way to do it. Gillett, whose father George is the official owner of the team that carries the seven-time champions name, was at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 19. His presence spread quickly, but he refused to respond to any questions posed by media members. Rumors have the team going out of business, going out of business temporarily while other investors are acquired and being sunk by the reputed mountain of indebtedness faced by the Gillett family. Foster Gilletts presence reportedly did nothing to allay fears among team members that their jobs are endangered. Remain calm „ The continuing decline in attendance and television ratings was initially greeted with bewilderment in many quarters of NASCAR. Stage two was denial. Stage three is that everything will be fine. I dont think Rome is burning in NASCAR,Ž said Richard Childress, who put three of his Chevys in the Chase. I think we still have a great sport. We have great fans. I think the economy has touched every sport at some point. I think that we will come back and be as strong as we ever were. I dont know financially-wise, but I think with the fans, theyre going to get their NASCAR fix, and I just think itll be back.Ž The most successful owner, Rick Hendrick, said the racing is the best Ive ever seen.Ž Then again, after five straight titles with Jimmie Johnson, he would.

Jimmie Johnson, seen with crew chief Chad Knaus at right, finished second and locked up his fifth straight championship, coming from behind in the final race. Johnson defeated Denny Hamlin, whom he had trailed by 15 points, by 39 and Kevin Harvick by 41.2010 SPRINT CUPBy Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week HOMESTEAD, Fla. „ Jimmie Johnson has a familiar face. He has turned the Chase for the Sprint Cup into what seems to be a perpetual case of dj vu all over again.Ž By finishing second in the Ford 400, the final race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Johnson managed to win the championship for a record fifth year in a row. No one else has won four straight. In fairness, the outcome came down to the final race, and Johnson began it in second place, 15 points behind the ill-fated Denny Hamlin, whose Toyota finished a disappointing 14th. Johnson won the championship by 39 points over Hamlin and 41 over Kevin Harvick, who finished third in the final race, won by the fourth-place finisher in points, Carl Edwards. Though hardly objective, crew chief Chad Knaus knows Johnson best. If you really sat back and looked at what this guy (Johnson) can do with a race car, you would be pretty impressed,Ž said Knaus. Hes been in some pretty precarious situations and driven through them. Hes put his nose in places that other people would not do and pulled it off. As a friend and as a teammate, I want to make sure that he gets what he deserves.Ž Johnson, from El Cajon, Calif., is uncomfortable tooting his own horn. Each year that Ive been in the sport, Ive become more comfortable with my role,Ž he said. The way I was raised in racing, I had to earn the right to say things, and I had to earn the right to have confidence and to act a certain way. Ive accomplished so much more than I ever thought I would.Ž Hendrick Motorsports earned its 10th championship, equaling Petty Enterprises, which won seven with Richard Petty and three with his father, Lee. Hendrick has won five titles with Johnson, four with Jeff Gordon and one with Terry Labonte. I know how fortunate I am to have guys like Jimmie Johnson and Chad (Knaus),Ž said Hendrick. I wouldnt want to race against them, and Ive been very fortunate through my career to have guys like Jeff Gordon and all of the great drivers that have been through our place. I always had hoped I could win a race, and then a championship, and survive through the sport and, you know, have sponsors and show up and be competitive. ƒ We are very appreciative, and I still cant believe that we have won five in a row or that we have gotten to 10.ŽHarvick would like the Chase sites moved aroundHes Still King Of The RoadV E R S U S 2010 STANDINGSSprint Cup Pts.1.

Jason White 958 Whos hot: What could be hotter than a “ fth straight championship for Jimmie Johnson? ... Carl Edwards won the “ nal two Sprint Cup races of 2010. Whos not: Denny Hamlins championship hopes came thoroughly unraveled at Homestead. ... Joey Loganos rally ended with a 39th place in the season “ nale. It took Jimmie Johnson 327 races to win “ve championships. It took Dale Earnhardt 390. It took Richard Petty 654. In Pettys defense, the seasons were quite a bit longer in his heyday. Johnson has never won at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He “nished second in 2004, when he fell by eight points to Kurt Busch in the Chase, and this year. The popular notion that the champion needed to win the “nal race proved laughable. Of the three contenders „ Johnson, Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick „ only Johnson led a lap, and he led only one. Winning the “nal two races would appear to give Carl Edwards quite a jumpstart on 2011. Edwards went winless in 2009 after winning nine times in 2008 and also winning at Homestead. Asked about being cast as title contender in 2011, Edwards said, Dont do that again. It didnt work worth a damn (in 2009).Ž Only Petty and Earnhardt, each with seven titles, have won more than Johnson. His, of course, have been in a row. How can NASCAR tinker with the Chase, given the results of the season just ended? A Ford driver has won the Ford 400 six times in the last seven years. Coincidence? Edwards new gimmick is greeting the fans by joining them in the grandstands after his celebratory back flip. Wonder how thats going to work if a victory is, shall we say, controversial? Kyle Buschs overall victory total in 2010 was 24: three Sprint Cup, eight Camping World Truck and 13 Nationwide. HarvickHarvick didnt put up much of a defense to the notion that he dumped Busch, saying Busch had raced (him) like a clown all day. After the race, when Denny Hamlin remarked that it was the same way Harvicks teammates had raced him, Harvick said, simply, I just parked yours (Busch).Ž NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: Give Harvick credit. Hes no weasel. He owns up to his actions, whether everyone agrees or not.ŽKEVIN HARVICK VS.

EdwardsBass & Christmas at CMSArtist Sam Bass has contributed his talent and graphic-design expertise to Carolina Christmas at Charlotte Motor Speedway. This event offers the best of both worlds: my home track and the opportunity to share the spirit of the holidays with thousands of guests attending the event.Ž Bass, who has designed color schemes for many of NASCARs teams, designed a holiday-themed Toyota Camry pace car for Carolina Christmas, featuring CMS mascot Lug Nut and a host of holiday characters. The pace car will also be on hand at Christmas parades throughout the Charlotte region. Bass also provided a North Pole art gallery in the Sprint Cup garage for Carolina Christmas, which opened on Nov. 22 and runs at the speedway every night through Jan. 2.

(Kyle) Busch went below the line and improved his position (Talladega) and was not forced below the line. He did not win that truck race by the rules that NASCAR themselves make. Those are two quick things why NASCAR is less than it was. I will add a third reason, but it is more of a personal one, Rick Hendricks is the worst thing that ever happened to NASCAR. He has my sympathy for his personal loss, and I wouldnt wish that on anyone, but the fact is he is a convicted felon, although he did buy a pardon, and should have been thrown out of NASCAR. When an organization allows crooks to be team owners, it tells you a lot about the organization. The same thing for (Gene) Haas also. Owners should be limited to two teams, and all affiliations to other teams should be tightly scrutinized and very limited. Ron Bean Pachuta, Miss.

The Hornets, however, soon got the lead back and held off a number of Sebring charges to capture the win. Toby Solebello, who got some valuable, main-man experience in last weeks' tournament, lead the Streaks with a game-high 26 points. But Harris made note of other contributions. "Trini Sutton really stepped up and played a heck of a game," he said. "He held their main scorer, Deminque Williams, to 1 7 points, along with he lp from a sick Josh Heflin.

Special to the News-Sun SEBRING Sebring Elks 1529 Veterans Committee is busy as always. They participated in the Veterans Council Yard Sale in Spring Lake on Nov. 18-19 and will attend one for Post 25 in Lake Placid in December. They are sending packages of small toiletry items, games and snacks to the service men and women overseas. They send an average of four per month with the cost of postage of $12.50 each. Working together with other Veterans Associations in Highlands County, they each share their "windfalls" of items donated when possible. As an example, Walgreens donated 1,000 toothbrushes to Post 25 and they in turn gave the Elks Veterans Committee 500 of them. In order to do as much as they do for the local veterans, the committee relies on anonymous donators as well as some who wish to be anonymous. While visiting the local nursing homes, they weekly bring items donated by members of the Lodge as well as outsiders. One 88-year-old woman bakes three dozen cookies a week to give out. Her neighbors have learned about her generosity and to her surprise there often will be flour and sugar at her doo r. Wood Haven Estates (whe re the Veterans chairperso ns live) have been generous in contributions also.

The first was the Peace River Domestic Violence Seminar held at Heartland Florida Hospital Tuesday. The conference room was full with more than 100 people, including a half dozen men. The seminar covered a variety of issues including definition of terms, types of violence, clues to be aware of and actions women take to not only avoid possible violence, but also to report incidence of threats or actual cases of violence. One incidence of violence against a person or property is a clear signal of danger. One's love or strong feelings for the perpetrator should not excuse nor ignore the incident. Addressing and analyzing the behavior is essential in resolving it and the status of the relationship. Teen violence is also an integral element of the equation.

Military News The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN Associated PressLONDON Are you r eady for your close-up now, K ate? When Prince William p opped the question, he made f iancee Kate Middleton one of t he most-photographed, mostp ursued women in the world. Since the announcement of t he couple's engagement, M iddleton dubbed "the C inderella of Bucklebury" by I taly's La Stampa newspaper has adorned front pages a nd websites around the w orld, photographed showing o ff her ring and checking out a possible wedding venue, W estminster Abbey. William is determined she w ill not suffer the hounding e xperienced by his mother, P rincess Diana. But protecti ng her may be difficult in the f ace of insatiable media intere st. "She's the main event n ow," said Max Clifford, B ritain's best-known celebrity p ublicist and that means M iddleton will have to watch h er every step. "She shouldn't be rollers kating in hot pants," Clifford s aid, referring to a muchr eprinted 2008 photo of M iddleton looking unsteady o n wheels at a charity disco e vent. "She's got to eat, b reathe, drink and sleep What's good for the royals, w hat would be bad for the royals?"' She may be marrying a future king, but many British people say they don't envy Middleton. "I feel bad for the poor girl," said Kayla Healey, 25, a social worker from Brighton in southern England. "She's been able to stay out of the limelight pretty much the entire time and now she is going to be absolutely bombarded." At least she has a good guide in William. The 28year-old grew up in the public eye, a handsome royal pinup, and seems to have coped well. William appears comfortable in front of the cameras unlike his father, Prince Charles, who is often stiff and pointedly ignores the gaggle of royal reporters who cover his engagements. But William's ease hides a deep-seated mistrust, rooted in the media hounding experienced by his mother, who was pursued by paparazzi until her death in a Paris car crash in 1997. The intense scrutiny endured by Britain's royals is partly the reason William waited so long to ask Middleton to marry him. In an interview this week, William said he "wanted to give her a chance to see in and to back out if she needed to before it all got too much." "I'm trying to learn from lessons done in the past," he said. The rules of the media game have changed since Diana's death, for which many hold the press at least partly responsible. Acoroner's inquest concluded that she died because of "grossly negligent driving" by her driver, Henri Paul. The paparazzi were following them. Since Diana's death the royal family has become more savvy and more willing to go to court, where the right to privacy has ben strengthened by a series of British legal rulings over the past decade. Rod Dadak, a privacy expert with London law firm Lewis Silkin, said there is a widespread feeling that William and Kate should be allowed to "enjoy their engagement without being pursued all the time."

However, when I first meet a man, I move slowly. If I agree to a date, I meet him at a public place. After a few dates, I'll share my email address so we can communicate more easily. And, Abby, that's when the trouble starts. Over the past few years, several men have e-mailed me nude photos of themselves after I gave them my contact information. I'm not a prude, but I feel it was disrespectful. I broke up with each of them and deleted their photos from my computer. Please lend me some advice and insight here. Until then, I'm considering remaining single forever. Seen It All in San Antonio DearSeen It All: I'm surprised you didn't sign yourself "Seen Too Much." Where are you meeting these creepy individuals? Before the Internet, they used to be called "flashers." Because this has happened to you more than once in the past few years, it's time to ask yourself if somehow you may have given the impression that you would be receptive to this kind of contact. In other words, think about the signals you may be sending after a few dates. DearAbby: With the holidays coming, I know I'll be spending time with my boyfriend's family. Every time I see his father (who is a poor excuse for a dad) he asks when I'm going to give him grandbabies. This has gone on for five years. I am not even married to his son, and I don't plan on having any children. He makes me feel like I don't deserve his son if I don't have children. (My boyfriend already has a son from a previous relationship.) I have tried to answer him nicely. I have even tried to be rude, but he just doesn't get it. I would like to know how to respond to him. I certainly do not want it to affect his family's Christmas, but I feel I should stick up for myself. Please help. Wants No Babies in Ne w Yo rk DearWants No Babies: Smile and tell the nervy ge ntleman he can expect you to give him grandbabies after you start feeling maternal, and when you begin to feel maternal he'll be the first to know. Do not pick a fight with him, and don't spend much time with him. Apparently, your boyfriend got his brains from his mot her. And now, Dear Readers, I am pleased to offer the trad itional Thanksgiving Prayer that was penned by my dea r mother, Pauline Phillips. N o Thanksgiving would be com plete for me without it. Oh, Heavenly Father, We thank Thee for food and remember the hungry. We thank Thee for health and remember the sick. We thank Thee for freedom and remember the enslaved.

LIVING 12B PAGE News-Sun Wednesday, November 24 2010 FAMILYFEATURES T he holidays are a time to celebrate the warmth of friendship, the love of family and the joy of the season. And when it comes to the holiday meal, you want a menu to match the mood and make everyone feel at home. Pure Canadian maple syrup is a versatile, all natural ingredient that adds complexity and depth to your holiday recipes. The flavorful, yet subtle sweetness in maple syrup brings out the best in savory dishes like a beautiful rib roast, succulent roasted root vegetables, and an almost decadent sweet potato purŽe. It's no surprise that maple's nutty, vanilla and spicy hints are the perfect complements for pumpkin mini tarts but it may surprise you to see just how easy they are to make. Crown your holiday feast with hot maple cider the whole family can enjoy, or for a special grownup treat, kick it up a notch with a splash of tasty dark rum. When shopping at the grocery store, be sure to look for "100% pure maple syrup" on bottle labels. For more flavorful ways to savor your holiday meals, visit the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup's website, www.purecanadamaple.com, and follow on Twitter @PureCanadaMaple.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Members of the engineering and landscape team who will be overseeing the Devane Park renovation were visibly taken aback during the Town Councils regular meeting Monday night. On the agenda to present a progress report on the project, which is scheduled to begin shortly after Jan. 1 and be completed by late June or July, they were met with suspicion and doubt in the form of sharp questions and an unwillingness on the part of council members to assume anything. The council asked for an in-depth explanation of the Florida Department of Transportation enhancement grant its origins and its ramifications and wanted to know if less money was spent on Devane Park could the leftover be used for another FDOTapproved project, like sidewalks on Green Dragon Drive. The creative team at the meeting, led by project manager Mike Morgan, were all on the implementation side of the renovation, not the financial, so they had trouble answering some of the questions. While they were not sure leftover funds would return to the city, for example, they thought it was possible. The money, dispersed by FDOT, actually comes from federal stimulus dollars. Projects are submitted as a whole and bid on as whole, with the low bidder awarded the contract. The design of the park was created by a local committee. The amount of the grant By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING The Highlands County Sheriffs Office is looking for a Sebring man who allegedly stabbed another man to death Friday. The exact address was being withheld by the HCSO, but in a press release on Monday, Assistant to Sheriff Susan Benton Kristian Ogg stated that upon arrival to a residence on Dolphin Drive in Sebring, deputies discovered a male subject who suffered from approximately 20 stab wounds. The unidentified victim required immediate medical attention, but Ogg said he died on the way to the hospital. The HCSO investigators have named Alfredo Alvareze, an illegal immigrant, as the suspect, according to the press release.

This is a very dangerous arrang ement. There is no rush to appoint a public safety dire ctor at this point. My point is following directions. That didnt happen, said Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray.

While their long-term forecast remained rosy, the economists from the Legislature and Gov. Charlie Crists office were gloomier about the immediate future than in July when they last updated their economic estimate. They now are forecasting unemployment rates will remain at or near 11.8 percent and the housing market will stay depressed for longer than anticipated. Thats expected to reduce state revenues, which may widen a $2.5 billion budget gap earlier predicted for the next budget year. The outlook is much more optimistic beyond the next couple years. The state now has about 7.2 million jobs, but thats expected to increase to at least 7.7 million by the 2013-14 fiscal year and to nearly 8.3 million seven years from now in 2017-18. The economists foresee a rebound to pre-recession prosperity, but its going to take a bit longer. Our belief is that there is nothing that has changed about Florida, its attraction to other states and other countries and that were slowly heading back to that same pace, sa id Amy Baker, coordinator of t he Legislatures Office of Economic an d Demographic Research.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Students at Heartland Christian School received a warm message from a special speaker last week. Col. Don Ballard visited the school on Friday leaving the students and faculty with words of wisdom and strength. Ballard served in the United States Navy from 1965-1969 as a 2nd class petty officer. After his Navy service, Ballard joined the Army National Guard in 1973 and served until 2000. Ballard earned the Medal of Honor in 1968 when he treated two Marines that were suffering from heat exhaustion. Ballard and his group were attacked by North Vietnamese Army. Ballard attempted to protect the wounded Marines and the others when a grenade landed nearby by jumping on top of the grenade. Luckily, it failed to explode. Ballard then quickly threw the grenade out of range and continued to treat the wounded. Col. Ballard was in town to visit and be a part of the Memorial wall thats up at the Lakeshore Mall. We were happy that we grabbed the opportunity to have him to stop by for a little while and speak to the students, said Hal Graves. Graves is the high school history and middle school current events instructor and was excited that the students were able to meet Ballard. Hes a Medal of Honor recipient and a brave man. The students learned a lot from him, Graves said.

How can I find the best-tasting t urkey?Age is a determining factor in taste. A turkey younger than 16 weeks is c alled a fryer, and a young roaster is 5 t o 7 months old. Ayearling is just over a year old. Any bird 15 months or older i s considered mature. Since old females g enerally have tough meat, hens are e aten when they are young and small. B ut young male birds generally have s tringy meat, so older, large males are p referred.5. What is the best way to thaw a f rozen turkey?The best and safest way to defrost a t urkey is to thaw it in the refrigerator. N ever thaw a turkey at room temperat ure. Put the turkey in its original w rapping on a shallow baking sheet in t he refrigerator. The following chart p rovides good guidelines for thawing t imes in the refrigerator.6. How do I know when the turkey is done?The turkey is done when the meat thermometer reaches 180 degrees F deep in the thigh and 170 degrees in the breast. Juices should be clear, not reddish-pink, when the thigh muscle is pierced. Pop-up timers provide a good indication, but you should always use a meat thermometer to confirm that the turkey is done. Astuffed turkey is done when the meat thermometer reaches 160 degrees F in the center of the stuffing.7.How do I carve a turkey?Turkey carving is easy, with the right tools and technique.8. Besides the meat, what parts of a turkey can be used?Amature turkey has about 3,500 feathers, most of which are composted or disposed of. But some are used for such things as American Indian costumes and pen quills. It has even been reported that Big Birds costume on Sesame Street is made of turkey feathers. Turkey feather down is also used to make pillows. Giblets are the edible internal parts of a turkey, including the gizzard, heart, liver and neck. They are usually removed, placed into a plastic bag and reinserted into the body cavity. Many people, particularly in the South, use the giblets to make gravy. As for the turkeys skin, it can be tanned and used for cowboy boots, belts and other accessories.9. Does turkey really make you sleepy?After a big meal of turkey and trimmings, most people want to nap. Studies have associated the essential amino acid L-tryptophan, a natural sedative, with drowsiness. Although L-tryptophan occurs naturally in turkey, you would have to eat a lot on an empty stomach with no other protein for it to make you sleepy. If you get drowsy after a big turkey dinner, the culprit is probably your high carbohydrate intake as the blood rushes from your brain to your stomach to help digest the large meal.10. How should I store my leftovers?Within two hours after roasting, remove the stuffing from the turkey and carve the meat off the bones. Chill the leftover meat in the refrigerator before wrapping for storage. For refrigerator storage, wrap the turkey and stuffing separately, and eat them within three days. If youre storing leftovers in the freezer, wrap the turkey and stuffing separately in heavy foil, freezer wrap or freezer bags. For best flavor, eat the stuffing within a month and the turkey within two months.11. How can I use the leftovers?The five most popular ways to serve leftover Thanksgiving turkey are: Sandwich Soup or stew Casserole Stir-fry Salad12. What states produce the most turkeys?Minnesota, Iowa, North Carolina and California are the leading turkey producers, and most states have at least one major operation.13. Where do turkeys come from?Turkeys originated in North and Central America and are believed to have been around for more than 10 million years.14. How did the turkey get its name?There are several theories on the origin. Some believe that Christoph er Columbus thought he had discovere d a land connected to India and that t he bird was some kind of peacock, so he called it tuka, which is peacock in Tamil, an Indian language. Others believe it got its name from the American Indian word for turkey, f irkee. Others theorize that it got its name from the noise it makes when scared: turk, turk, turk.15. Can turkeys fly? What othe r special traits do they have?Turkeys raised on turkey farms cant fly because theyre too fat and weak. But wild turkeys can fly for short distances at up to 55 mph a nd can run at speeds up to 25 mph Turkeys have great hearing, but no external ears. They can also see in color, and a wide field of vision (about 270 degrees), which makes sneaking up on them difficult. 16. Is it true th at the turkey was considered for the national symbol of th e United States?Benjamin Franklin argued passionately on behalf of the turkey and wa s unhappy when the bald eagle was chosen instead. In a lette r to his daughter, he said the ba ld eagle had bad moral character and the turkey is a much more respectable bird, and with al a true original native of America . www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 24, 2010Page 3A Ask us about DirecTVPlasma,HGTV,Smart Energy,Picture Wizard,Infinite Sound$195Christmas GreenModel # U2630Bags with Docking Systems,Plastic Bag Support,Power Switch on Handle, Headlight 50 TV $39932Digital Tuner Photo Frame Mode PC Input HDTV Invisible Speakers32 LCD MODEL #32C100 $59942Picture Wizard,Smart Energy, Auto Turning,Freeze FrameMODEL #LG42P535042 TV $9993D Ready Projection HDTV60 DLP MODEL #WD60638 $560.7 cu.ft Capacity,700 Watts, Glass Turntable,10 Power Levels, Cooking Guide,Time Cook I and II, Child LockHOTPOINT REM25SJ$99Electronic Touch Controls,1 cu.ft.

I was in no m ood to celebrate T hanksgiving this y ear. We were hurti ng financially and t he wife was drivi ng me nuts trying t o cut down on c osts. With the bad e conomy, many are l ooking for ways to s ave money. You have no i dea. First off, Id been w orking two lower-paying j obs, as Ive been unable to f ind another good-paying job a fter being laid off two years a go. Too many Americans are s truggling this way. Its not like I had any s pare time, but neither did t he wife. Shed been worki ng two jobs. Nonetheless, s he had me spending every s pare moment looking for c oupons and bargains on c anned cranberries, pumpkin f illing and so on. That doesnt sound fun. It wasnt. Nor was I very g ood at it. The wife was so u nhappy with my lack of p rogress, she finally decided t o give me a ridiculously s mall stipend to buy E VERYTHING wed need f or dinner. That went better? Not exactly. The most b asic elements cranberr ies, pumpkin pie filling, r olls and so on ate up my entire budget. I didnt panic though. One grocery store had a promotion in which the first 20 customers on Thanksgiving morning would get free turkeys. Wonderful! Thats what I thought. I slept in front of the store all night. There were a couple dozen people, but I snagged the 20th spot. But wouldnt you know they ran out of turkeys by the time they handed out 15! I was in trouble now, so I grabbed our overburdened credit card and went to every grocery store in town but not one of them had a turkey! You had no turkey on Thanksgiving Day! The wife was going to brain me good! I was mighty down. As I said, wed been struggling financially all year. The unemployment rate looked like it would never go down. Our country is broke and getting broker. Our competitors, such as China, are rising. All I could think about were negative things. That is understandable. Then, as I was driving home, a broken-down van was blocking the road. My first impulse was to honk and curse, but then I saw an old man behind the wheel. I parked my car and knocked on his door. He told me his truck had stalled and he ran the battery down trying to start it. He said he called for help but it never came that his cell phone died and hed been sitting there for two hours. Its hard to get help on a holiday. It was freezing cold in his van and he had no coat, so I gave him mine. Then I pushed his van off the road. I know a few things about old trucks and used my jumper cables to get his truck running. You never saw a happier man. It made me feel pretty good I completely forgot my worries. You did a wonderful thing. Well, it got me thinking. Were going to be all right. Our country has faced big problems before. Weve solved them before. We just need to reach out to each other a little more. We need to look our problems dead in the eye and face them down, and I know we will! Thats why it was the best Thanksgiving ever? Sort of. See, the old man told me he owns a grocery store and was in a hurry to get to the store with five fresh turkeys for a free giveaway when ...

E-mail Tom at Purcell@caglecartoons.com. Y ou should know your accuser, and i f it is your neighbor, y ou should talk to t hem about it, but t he county feels that a nonymous comp laints to code e nforcement should c ontinue.This attitude is both confusi ng and possibly detrimental to t he sense of community that H ighlands County real estate a gents strive to promote in t heir literature. Citizen Joe Eck and C ommissioner Guy Maxcy, w ho has since left the board, a sked to add the names of the c omplainants to code enforcem ent documents during a r ecent update of the county c ode enforcing the sound comp laints. Both commissioner Barbara S tewart and Code Enforcement S upervisor Linda Conrad a rgued against eliminating a nonymous code enforcement c omplaints, but their argum ents may be giving citizens a f alse sense of security. Stewart and Conrad both stated that if the names of the complainants were revealed, it might anger those accused, and that it might also cut down on the amount of complaints coming into code enforcement. Both gave examples of how an angry neighbor could retaliate against a complainer, and Stewart even told one story about how four sheriff vehicles had to be called out for one complaint because of a threat of violence. Both Stewart and Conrad stated that keeping the names anonymous protected complainers, and kept them safe. But not revealing your name does not protect you from being discovered as a complainant. It is a simple matter to request other public records, such as phone logs, to show who called in and when. So, while thinking that you were able to tattle on your neighbor during a phone call protects you, that is not actually the case. Additionally, anonymous complaints are not part of the spirit of the U.S. Bill of Rights, which says you have a right to face your accuser if the case goes to court. Something you cannot do if the complaint is anonymous. Now, we understand that part of police work is to protect some informants in order to do the job, but can you really compare drug dealing with an overgrown yard? Certain police records are protected by law, where as Highlands County Code Enforcement in Florida does not have that luxury. Anonymous complaints can also breed distrust among neighbors who ask Who is complaining? Could it be the old couple across the street, or is it the single mother next door? Maybe, its those new folks who just moved in up the street. That does not bode well for the block Christmas party. The thought that you should tattle on your neighbor anonymously is not new. Hitler, Stalin and Pol Pot used that method a lot. In fact, they encouraged it motivate by fear and suspicion. Joe Eck had it right when he said he didnt mind giving his name if someone was doing wrong, and we agree with Mr. Eck, that standing up for what is right is the only way to go, but hiding behind proposed anonymous call ins just discourages a sense of community. Additionally, Mr. Eck is also the kind of guy who would go mow the grass for a single mother or the elderly if they needed a helping hand. The county should really reconsider their policy for accepting anonymous complaints, especially if they wish to encourage Highlands Countys sense of community. Government should be on our side, openly and honestly, not secretly trying to catch us not mowing our yard.

Why? Because the truth hurts. Out of the several letters written in response to my recent NewsSun Letter to the Editor, 11/10/2010, only one person signed his name. The others hid behind the anonymity of an alias. Well, if I were a Republican I too would be ashamed to sign my name. But being on the side of truth, justice and the American way, and not ashamed to be a Democrat, I sign my letters. Obviously Republicans are againstfreedom of speech, the very basis of a democracy. One did surprise me by agreeing that Rick Scott incurred the largest Medicare fraud in history. Yet he voted for him. One of the older letters I have received was this one youre sick, you should see a doctor. Unsigned, of course. My response, in a Letter to the Editor, was Its obvious from your note that youre a Republican. In that 11/10/2010 letter I wrote that George Bush did not come out prior to the election to stump for any candidate because it would have been The Kiss of Death, yet just a few days after the election he crawled out from that rock he was hiding under with a book he had supposedly written. Heres a guy who could barely read the speeches written for him by Carl Rove and Michael Gerson and Im supposed to believe that he wrote a book? If there is anyone who believes that Bush wrote it I have a bridge in New York City between Manhattan and Brooklyn thats for sale. Cheap.

This arrival was awesome. Jack Hegarty SebringNovember is Lung Cancer Awareness MonthEditor: November is International Lung Cancer Awareness Month. The official color of lung cancer awareness is clear, but it might as well be invisible to most Americans. I am one of those Americans that is not invisible. I am a six-month lung cancer survivor. Lung cancer takes more lives each year than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined. But according to a study conducted by the National Lung Cancer Partnership, 80 percent of respondents didnt know that lung cancer was the No. 1 cancer killer in the United States. Eighty-eight percent of respondents didnt know that radon, a colorless, odorless natural gas, is the second leading cause of lung cancer, and only 12 percent of respondents said they knew the signs and symptoms of lung cancer. When awareness is low, people are less likely to understand and pay attention to symptoms, take measures to protect their health and discuss their risks with their doctor. I strongly urge everyone in Highlands County to learn more about this devastating disease and talk with their doctors about their own risk For more information about lung cancer please vis it www.nationallungcancerpar tnership.org. Grace Plan ts Sebrin g OLearys column is right onEditor: Congratulations to Dale OLearys article on Big Government vs Free People . Excellent word smything to describe how all free people in this most magnificant country that we call the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave need to stand up for liberty. We mus t all wake up now to see how we can band together for freedom to fight (through peaceful non-violance) against any person or group that wants to take us under their rule as a dictatorship o r totalatarian government (communists). Please remember the following inspirational words from one of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson: Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal right s of others. I do not add with in the limits of the law, because law is often but the tyrants will, and always so when it violates the rights o f the individual. Since I am related (on my fathers mothers side) to th e last signer of the Declaration of Independence, Matthew Thornton, let us all pledge together with the words in the last sentence of the Declaration ... And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of devine Providence, we mutu ally pledge to each other ou r Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

With a heav y heart, I have made the decision to leave the Hammock. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who helped make us a success over the years, including our local residents campers, winter visitors and friends from neighboring counties. They are some of the best fish fry eaters I hav e ever seen. I also would like to express how much I have enjoyed working with the park rangers and volunteers We should all appreciate the hard work they do in helpin g to preserve such a place of beauty. Most of all, I would like to thank Peter Anderson. Peter was park manager at Highlands Hammock for many years and was instrumental in the success of my business. Without his fairmindedness and genuine con cern, I would never have made it over the past five years. So with all endings, come new beginnings. I am opening a small BBQ business o n Lakeview in the old Rib Masters building, hopefully in December and yes, I will be serving my Wild Orange Ice Cream and Pie. I would be honored if you stop by, even to just say hi. On a final note, I would urge you to continue to use the park. It is a precious gif t given to us to enjoy. I know I will. Nancy L.

Page 6ANews-SunWednesday, November 24, 2010www.newssun.com Associated PressATLANTA Despite tough talk o n the Internet, there was little if a ny indication of a passenger revolt a t many major U.S. airports, with v ery few people declining the X-ray s can that can peer through their c lothes. Those who refuse the m achines are subject to a pat-down s earch that includes the crotch and c hest. Many travelers said that the scans a nd the pat-down were not much of a n inconvenience, and that the s tepped-up measures made them f eel safer and were, in any case, u navoidable. Whatever keeps the country s afe, I just dont have a problem w ith, Leah Martin, 50, of Houston, s aid as she waited Monday to go t hrough security at the Atlanta airp ort. At New Yorks LaGuardia A irport early Tuesday, Jeannine St. A mand got a pat-down in front of h er husband and two children. The 4 5-year-old from Fredericton, New B runswick, Canada, figured she got o ne because the underwire of her b ra tripped the metal detector. Its hard to remember all the r estrictions. Next time, Ill wear a d ifferent bra, she said. She opted to have the pat-down i n public rather than private and s aid it was professional and done by a female agent. She tells you ahead of time what s he is going to do, which is a good t hing because that could be awkw ard, St. Amand said. Transportation Security A dministration chief John Pistole p leaded with Thanksgiving travele rs for understanding and urged t hem not to boycott full-body scans o n Wednesday. It would only snarl w hat is already one of the busiest, m ost stressful flying days of the and w ould only tie up people who want t o go home and see their loved o nes, he said. We all wish we lived in a world w here security procedures at airp orts werent necessary, he said, but that just isnt the case. He noted the alleged attempt by a N igerian with explosives in his u nderwear to bring down a plane o ver Detroit last Christmas. About two-thirds of Americans support using the full-body scanners to increase security, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll published Tuesday. But half of the 514 adults surveyed by phone said the more rigorous pat-downs go too far. At Chicagos OHare Airport, Gehno Sanchez, a 38-year-old from San Francisco who works in marketing, said he doesnt mind the full-body scans. I mean, they may make you feel like a criminal for a minute, but Id rather do that than someone touching me, he said. Aloosely organized Internet campaign is urging people to refuse the scans on Wednesday in what is being called National Opt-Out Day. The extra time needed to pat down people could cause a cascade of delays at dozens of major airports, including those in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Atlanta. Just one or two recalcitrant passengers at an airport is all it takes to cause huge delays, said Paul Ruden, a spokesman for the American Society of Travel Agents, which has warned its more than 8,000 members about delays. It doesnt take much to mess things up anyway. Most who dont like the screenings just grumble but dont really cause a big fuss, at least not that Cris Soulia, a TSAofficer in San Diego and president of a local union, has heard or seen. Were not here groping people. Were not here molesting people. Were checking them for items and explosives. And yes, explosives can be hidden in the groin area, she said. More than 400 imaging units are being used at about 70 airports. Since the new procedures began Nov. 1, 34 million travelers have gone through checkpoints and less than 3 percent are patted down, according to the TSA. At the White House, press secretary Robert Gibbs said the government is desperately trying to balance security and privacy and will take the publics concerns and complaints into account as it evaluates the new, more stringent boarding checks. The American Civil Liberties Union has received more than 600 complaints over three weeks from passengers who say they were subjected to humiliating pat-downs at U.S. airports, and the pace is accelerating, according to ACLU legislative counsel Christopher Calabrese. It really drives home how invasive it is and unhappy they are, he said. Ricky D. McCoy, a TSAscreener and president of a union local in Illinois and Wisconsin, said the atmosphere has changed in the past two weeks for officers in his region. Since word of the pat-downs hit the headlines, officers have been punched, pushed or shoved s ix times after they explained wh at would be happening, McCoy said We have major problem s because basically TSAnever ed ucated the public on what was goin g on, he said. Our agency pret ty much just threw the new sear ch techniques out there. Stories of alleged heavy-hand ed treatment by TSAagents captur ed peoples imagination. Abladder cancer survivor fro m Michigan who wears a bag that co llects his urine said its conten ts spilled on his clothing after a sec urity agent at a Detroit airport patt ed him down roughly. Tom Sawyer, a 61-year-o ld retired special education teache r, said the Nov. 7 experience left hi m in tears. I was absolutely humilia ted. I couldnt even speak, he to ld MSNBC.com. During an appearance on CB S, the TSAs Pistole expressed gre at concern over anybody who fee ls like they have not been treat ed properly or had something emba rrassing happen. Avideo showing a shirtle ss young boy resisting a pat-down at Salt Lake Citys airport has becom e a YouTube sensation and led to demands for an investigation fro m Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, an outspoken critic of TSAscreenin g methods. The video of the uniden tified boy was shot Friday by a bystander with a cell phone. The TSAsaid in a blog postin g that nobody has to disrobe at an a irport checkpoint apart from remo ving shoes and jackets. According to the TSA, the boy was bein g searched because he triggered an alarm inside a metal detector, an d his father removed the youngster s shirt to speed up the screening. The boycott campaign w as launched Nov. 8 by Bri an Sodergren, who lives in Ashbur n, Va., and works in the health ca re industry. I just dont think the gover nment has the right to look und er peoples clothes with no reasonab le cause, no suspicion other than pu rchasing a plane ticket, he said in an interview with The Associat ed Press.

Thats b ecause the familys overs ized dogs a Great Dane a nd a pointer are coming, t oo. Our dogs are part of the f amily. Thats why they go e verywhere we go, said M ike Eubank, 51, of O verland Park, Kan., who p iles the dogs, his wife and t hree kids into a motorhome f or trips to a lake where E ubank keeps a boat. Nearly a quarter of pet o wners have taken a vacation w ith their animals in the last t wo years, according to an A ssociated PressP etside.com poll conducted b y GfK Roper Public Affairs a nd Corporate C ommunications. Seventy-five percent found t he trip more enjoyable than s tressful. Randall Balmer, 56, of W oodbury, Conn., considers t he best part of his vacations p laying with his 12-year-old y ellow Lab, throwing rocks a nd watching Dakota chase t hem. The worst part? Watching D akota get wet, then get in t he car. Hes just kind of part of t he family. We like to have h im with us, Balmer said, e ven if Dakota is getting too o ld for the trips. Although more hotel c hains now allow pets, 70 p ercent of those who vacat ioned with their pets recentl y said they have stayed with r elatives, 55 percent with f riends and 52 percent in a h otel. Four in 10 said they h ave taken their pet to a c ampsite and 34 percent took an RVtrip. Dog owners (31 percent) were more apt than cat owners (19 percent) to bring their pets along, and among those who have only cats, only 7 percent included them in trips. Karen Miles, 66, of Altoona, Wis., takes both. Fletcher, a pug-dachshund mix, and Snuffleupagus, a Himalayan cat, make the trip when she and her family hook up their trailer and go camping or visiting, usually about twice a month. Both pets travel well and just need bowls, food, toys and a litter box for Snuffy, Miles said. Most of those who have had a good experience traveling with their pet plan to do it again. But such dedicated pet-vacationers are a rare breed: Just 22 percent of all pet owners said they were extremely or very likely to include their pet in a future vacation. Seventy-four percent of cat owners said they were not at all likely to take their pet along. Hotels and campgrounds have changed a lot in the last five or 10 years, so that traveling with pets can be as luxurious as any owner wants it. At The Peninsula Beverly Hills, dogs are treated to ultrasuede beds, a monogrammed towel, a bowl, designer water and Iams dog food, spokeswoman Sharon Boorstin said. Abellman will walk your dog, sit your dog or arrange a massage, training, grooming, transportation or appointment with a vet. There is also a room service doggie menu that includes an aperitif called a tail shakinnot stirred martini and a disclaimer: No hooch for your pooch. (The martini uses beef bullion.) Based on registration forms, between 55 percent and 60 percent of campers at Kampgrounds of America Inc., the largest network of campgrounds in North America, travel with pets, said spokesman Mike Gast. Thats up from around 45 percent eight years ago. Pets are something people arent willing any more to leave home without, he said. Peter Furgis, 74, of West Jordan, Utah, said trips are more fun with his dog Charlie, just like everything else is more enjoyable. Furgis has a cabin in Wyoming and heads there often with Charlie, a 6-yearold Yorkshire Terrier. But he concedes his travels with Charlie arent always easy. Last time I went it was in July and quite hot, Furgis said. It was quite inconvenient. I couldnt leave him in the truck and we had to stop at drive-ins to eat. We were both hot. Traveling with Hercules, a mixed Pekinese and poodle, added some stress to Vickie Lojeks last car trip because she wanted to impress her inlaws and it required a bit more coordination and time. Lojek, of Richmond, Va., wanted Hercules to be a compatible guest, not a barking knucklehead. In the end, Hercules was a big hit with all three generations at the family reunion and hell be more than welcome on the familys next trip, Lojek said. Poll: Pets make cut on family trips MCTphoto Arecent poll showed that 34 percent of people who vacation with their pets took them on an RVtrip. Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A woman found dead in her home along with her three young children had been in court four days earlier seeking child support from her slain 6-year-old twins father, who has a lengthy criminal record, court records show. Ajudge last Tuesday signed a final order requiring Antonio L. Anthony to pay $307 per month plus retroactive child support of $22,925 to 27-year-old Brandi Peters. Peters was found dead Saturday along with twins Tamiyah and Taniyah Peters and her 3year-old son, Joyante Segura, at their Tallahassee home just a few miles from the Florida Capitol. No one has been charged and police say all four deaths are considered homicides. Police said Monday that they have spoken to the father of the twins and the boys father, Henry Segura Jr. Peters also had obtained a final order in August f or $744.47 per month an d $20,100 in retroactive chi ld support from Segura Jr. Anthony, 44, who has a handgun tattooed on his le ft arm, has served three priso n terms in the past 20 year s, according Flori da Department of Correctio ns records.

Aspokesman for the R epublican governor-elect d id not immediately respond t o an e-mail seeking comm ent. The economistsnew forec ast actually calls for slightly f ewer jobs than the 8.32 mill ion they had predicted in J uly for 2017-18. They also said the unemp loyment rate will remain about 11.8 percent through the first quarter of 2011 before dropping to 11.6 percent. Thats a quarter later than previously forecast. As before, they still expect the jobless rate to finally drop below 10 percent in the third quarter of 2012. Its expected to continue falling until it reaches 5.5 percent in 201920. The state outlook is based on a national forecast the economists made last week except for the housing market, which is worse in Florida due in part to a high foreclosure rate that keeps dumping more homes on the market. We are flat out No. 1 in terms of the shadow inventory we need to get rid of, Baker said. The state forecast will serve as the basis for a general revenue estimate due next month for use in Scotts first budget request to lawmakers early next year. The revenue estimate doesnt include potential tax losses from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Baker said that wont be factored in until some time after Scotts Jan. 4 inauguration.

According to Florida Police Benevolent Association Representative Jack Soule, 24 of the 28 employees at the police department signed a petition opposing a safety director. I have the names here, and I will give that to the clerk. But I dont think that you have done your homework on this, Soule said. Some research was supposed to be done, was there ever an RFPdeveloped? No, Mayor Schuler responded. If no one really knows what the cost savings is, why are we even advertising? Soule asked. We have a majority vote against doing this for the same reason, said Avon Park Fire Department Lt. Steve Kempe. Other council members wanted to stress that they supported the idea of a safety director because they were told there would be a savings to the budget, but now those numbers were in question. Trying to get consensus of which way the council wanted staff to proceed, Schuler asked for direction, but got varying responses from her peers. I dont care one way or the other, Gray responde d. But Terry Heston an d Aljoe Hinson pressed f or solid numbers before a decision was made. My whole thing w as from the financial point of view, said Heston. A re we putting this position in place to save us money? I have heard conflicting st ories about how much th at is. We were told by t he interim city manag er (Maria Sutherland) and b y our chief financial offic er (Renee Green) that w e would save money. I ha ve heard no other numbers o n this, so I am sticking wi th what we were told, Gr ay said. This was supposed to save us money. We we re given all those figures, b ut from what I hear now, tho se figures were not realistic , Hinson said. I would like to know t he real numbers. I have hea rd $102,000, $48,000 an d $16,000 today. I would li ke to know the real numbe rs before the decision is made, Heston said. Behrens promised to return to the council aft er the first of the year wi th numbers from the city s finance department. Continued from page 1A Continued from page 1A h ad some council members upset. They f elt $750,000 was a high price to pay for a public park restoration, and quest ioned why so much money was needed. The project leaders representing F DOTand AJAX Paving, the overseeing c ompany said everything but the oak t rees and gazebo would be removed f rom the circle. Areas where poor soil h as hindered grass growth will be s kimmed off and top soil brought in. The gazebo will be rebuilt with a h igher roof and brick facing. The gazeb os ceiling will be cypress tongue-andg roove construction. Aramp will be added for wheelchair a ccess. New electrical and water lines, i ncluding irrigation, will be installed. Native plants and Florida-friendly p lants, like live oak, magnolias, lantana, I ndian hawthorne, miniature firebush, c repe myrtle and sable palms will be u sed. The park will be re-sodded. Existing sidewalks will be replaced a nd a new slightly wavy 10 foot-wide w alk will be installed around the p erimeter. Anew well is included in the budget, b ecause the existing screen well is elde rly and unreliable. The subject of the well brought a c hallenge from the council, especially w hen the creative team suggested a new w ell wasnt needed. There was a sharp difference of opini on over the use of roofing shingles, w ith most council members preferring m etal. Town Attorney Bert Harris pushed the e ngineers to predict the gazebos life s pan, as did Council Member Ray R oyce. Morgan said high-quality materials w ere to be used so the park and gazebo w ould be durable and low maintenance. Harris was also concerned over the lack of specific detail. Lets not go any further until we know more. I dont see how we have enough to agree with now, he said Ultimately, the council demanded more details and control over choices. Morgan told the council he appreciated the input, saying it was the people of Lake Placid who would live with the park, and he and his team wanted to build a place they would use.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAdd another title to the City of Champions as the Avon Park Mitey Mites survived by far their biggest test of the season to claim the Mid Florida Football and Cheer Conference Super Bowl Championship with a 26-25, overtime, nail-biting win. The lil Red Devils, coached by Reggie Knighten, had gone through the regular season unbeaten and unscored upon. Neither of those stats changed during their run through the Sunshine District play as they topped DeSoto 33-0 and Sebring 70. It wasnt until the Western Conference title game in Tampa on Saturday, Nov. 13 that a team reached the end zone against Avon Park. And even then, it was a lone touchdown, and a failed extra point in the 13-6 win over Childs Park. But this past Saturday had them pitted against the CFAAChargers, the defending Super Bowl champions on a 27-game win streak. The Devils got on the board first, but saw the Chargers soon tie it at 6-6, to set in motion a back and forth affair that would push both teams to the best of their abilities. CFAAwould then take a 12-6 lead, but a Terran ce Butler touchdown an d Malcolm Dewberry ext ra point put Avon Park up 1 312 at the half. Butler would then exten d the lead, opening the secon d half by returning the kick o ff all the way for a score, b ut the Chargers struck rig ht back to tie it up at 19-19. From there, the defens es stepped it up, surviv ed scares and sent the gam e into overtime, with ea ch team getting the ball at t he 10 and having four plays to score. CFAAmade the most of their opportunity, getting t he go-ahead touchdown, but t he Devil defense made it s biggest stand of the da y, stuffing the extra-poi nt attempt. That would prove to be the key moment of the gam e as, soon-to-be game MV P, Butler then scored on Avo n Parks first play to tie it, an d SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, November 24, 2010NASCAR This WeekPage 3 B Courtesy photo The Flag Thunderbolts, coached by Jamie Solis, took first place in the Classic Division during the MFFCC Cheer Competition held in Lakeland on Saturday, Oct. 6.

Sebring Youth Cheer hopes to be Atlanta bound And Another Thing... Dan Hoehne FHSAA.comGAINESVILLE The Florida High School Athletic Association Board of Directors voted today to create a rural classification in most sanctioned team sports, and to increase the number of classifications in sanctioned team sports. The reclassification plan for football renames Classes 1Aand 1B to reflect the new 1Arural and 1Aurban designations. Tentative districts will be available online in December, allowing for final Board of Directors approval of appeals during the January 2011 meeting. In baseball, basketball, softball and girls volleyball, the existing six-class structure was augmented b y Class 7Aand the rural cla ssification. Boys and girls socc er added Class 7Afor a tot al of six classifications. When the FHSAAorig inally went up to six class ifications in team sports in 1999, we had 517 memb er schools, with 480 of tho se playing team sports.No w that we have 670 memb er schools and 650 of those in team sports, the number of teams in individual distric ts is too large, sa id Executive Director Rog er Dearing.Moving to eig ht classifications allows f or fewer teams in each di strict, which allows for mo re flexibility in scheduling f or the season.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comWorking through the Bill Jarrett Tip-Off Tournament last week, Princeton Harris saw his Blue Streak squad without key members still partaking in the football season, and yet his young, inexperienced squad pulled together to get a win over Clewiston. Harris had his full squad together Monday night, though with a minimal amount of practice time, to face a strong Haines City Hornet team that had topped Avon Park for the Tip-Off title. And while the 69-60 loss may have been expected, considering the circumstances, Harris was more than pleased with what he saw. You almost couldnt tell the football players had just gotten back, he said. They stepped right in and played well. That was, of course, after the Hornets had flown out to a 21-4 lead and had gotten the home crowd buzzing. Sebring cagers push Hornets See STREAKS, page 4B Haines City69Sebring60 The writing had been on t he wall for a few weeks, e ver since it had become o bvious that head coach B rad Childress had lost the M innesota locker room. But for all the bold talk f rom Viking players saying t hey would win despite the c oach they despised, they d idnt do much to back it up. Save for a comeback win o ver a bad Arizona team, the l ast few weeks have seen M innesota get beaten down b y division rivals Chicago a nd Green Bay, turning in l istless and underwhelming p erformances. And so Childress has been f ired, as of Monday, with d efensive coordinator Leslie F razier promoted to the top j ob, for the time being. But its a tough spot F razier finds himself in. At 3-7, the Vikings are all b ut out of any chance of gett ing into the playoffs, and w hile Brett Favre is still able t o take the field, despite n umerous injuries, lately that a ll he seems to be able to do take the field. And yet, with a fantastic p erformance in that Arizona g ame, and with his main w eapon, Sidney Rice, just n ow coming back into the f old, it would seem he gives t he team itsbest chance to w in each week though t hats not necessarily saying m uch. But it must be tempting to s ay, with the season going n owhere and with Favre gett ing more and more battered a s the losses pile up, to look t oward the future. Send Brett home, give him h is release and turn the ball o ver to Tarvaris Jackson, M innesotas future quart erback for a few seasons n ow. It would seem time to f inally find out how much of a future he has as the signal c aller, so the Vikings know b est how to proceed for c oming seasons. That, however, would Vikings put Frazier in tough spot See FRAZIER, p a g e 4B News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Faviannette Cottes late-game, long-distance connections got the Lady Devils close, but not quite over the hump of Lakeland Monday night. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThey made a push at the end, but the A von Park girls basketball team couldnt q uite get past a strong Lakeland team at h ome Monday night in a 67-64 loss. It was good competition, but that was a beatable team, head coach Paulette Daley said. We missed some assignments and didnt play to our potential. But they played well enough to stay within range of the Lady Dreadnaughts, and a long-range display nearly brought them back. Faviannette Cotte heated up from b eyond the arc to get the Red Devils on the b rink, but Lakeland held on and escaped A von Park with the win. She nearly brought us back toward the e nd, hitting quite a few threes, Daley said. Shes really turned it around for us with h er outside shooting. She got us close and w e had our opportunities.

www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, November 24, 2010Page 3B By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week HOMESTEAD, Fla. Kevin Harvick doesnt want to see the Chase format change. He wants to see the Sprint Cup schedule change. Id like to see a little bit more diversity in the race tracks, he said. I dont think the last 10 weeks should be the same tracks over and over and over again. I think it should rotate around. I think that would help particular race markets get better. You have it end at different places, have it start at different places. Maybe you go to some of the same tracks, but I think a different 10 weeks, even a road course at the end of the year, would put that full diversity, I guess you could say, on your champion to getting to all the different styles of tracks. Speechless If Foster Gillett meant to quiet rumors regarding the future of Richard Petty Motorsports, this wasnt the way to do it. Gillett, whose father George is the official owner of the team that carries the seven-time champions name, was at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 19. His presence spread quickly, but he refused to respond to any questions posed by media members. Rumors have the team going out of business, going out of business temporarily while other investors are acquired and being sunk by the reputed mountain of indebtedness faced by the Gillett family. Foster Gilletts presence reportedly did nothing to allay fears among team members that their jobs are endangered. Remain calm The continuing decline in attendance and television ratings was initially greeted with bewilderment in many quarters of NASCAR. Stage two was denial. Stage three is that everything will be fine. I dont think Rome is burning in NASCAR, said Richard Childress, who put three of his Chevys in the Chase. I think we still have a great sport. We have great fans. I think the economy has touched every sport at some point. I think that we will come back and be as strong as we ever were. I dont know financially-wise, but I think with the fans, theyre going to get their NASCAR fix, and I just think itll be back. The most successful owner, Rick Hendrick, said the racing is the best Ive ever seen. Then again, after five straight titles with Jimmie Johnson, he would.

Jimmie Johnson, seen with crew chief Chad Knaus at right, finished second and locked up his fifth straight championship, coming from behind in the final race. Johnson defeated Denny Hamlin, whom he had trailed by 15 points, by 39 and Kevin Harvick by 41.2010 SPRINT CUPBy Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week HOMESTEAD, Fla. Jimmie Johnson has a familiar face. He has turned the Chase for the Sprint Cup into what seems to be a perpetual case of dj vu all over again. By finishing second in the Ford 400, the final race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Johnson managed to win the championship for a record fifth year in a row. No one else has won four straight. In fairness, the outcome came down to the final race, and Johnson began it in second place, 15 points behind the ill-fated Denny Hamlin, whose Toyota finished a disappointing 14th. Johnson won the championship by 39 points over Hamlin and 41 over Kevin Harvick, who finished third in the final race, won by the fourth-place finisher in points, Carl Edwards. Though hardly objective, crew chief Chad Knaus knows Johnson best. If you really sat back and looked at what this guy (Johnson) can do with a race car, you would be pretty impressed, said Knaus. Hes been in some pretty precarious situations and driven through them. Hes put his nose in places that other people would not do and pulled it off. As a friend and as a teammate, I want to make sure that he gets what he deserves. Johnson, from El Cajon, Calif., is uncomfortable tooting his own horn. Each year that Ive been in the sport, Ive become more comfortable with my role, he said. The way I was raised in racing, I had to earn the right to say things, and I had to earn the right to have confidence and to act a certain way. Ive accomplished so much more than I ever thought I would. Hendrick Motorsports earned its 10th championship, equaling Petty Enterprises, which won seven with Richard Petty and three with his father, Lee. Hendrick has won five titles with Johnson, four with Jeff Gordon and one with Terry Labonte. I know how fortunate I am to have guys like Jimmie Johnson and Chad (Knaus), said Hendrick. I wouldnt want to race against them, and Ive been very fortunate through my career to have guys like Jeff Gordon and all of the great drivers that have been through our place. I always had hoped I could win a race, and then a championship, and survive through the sport and, you know, have sponsors and show up and be competitive. We are very appreciative, and I still cant believe that we have won five in a row or that we have gotten to 10.Harvick would like the Chase sites moved aroundHes Still King Of The RoadV E R S U S 2010 STANDINGSSprint Cup Pts.1.

Jason White 958 Whos hot: What could be hotter than a fth straight championship for Jimmie Johnson? ... Carl Edwards won the nal two Sprint Cup races of 2010. Whos not: Denny Hamlins championship hopes came thoroughly unraveled at Homestead. ... Joey Loganos rally ended with a 39th place in the season nale. It took Jimmie Johnson 327 races to win ve championships. It took Dale Earnhardt 390. It took Richard Petty 654. In Pettys defense, the seasons were quite a bit longer in his heyday. Johnson has never won at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He nished second in 2004, when he fell by eight points to Kurt Busch in the Chase, and this year. The popular notion that the champion needed to win the nal race proved laughable. Of the three contenders Johnson, Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick only Johnson led a lap, and he led only one. Winning the nal two races would appear to give Carl Edwards quite a jumpstart on 2011. Edwards went winless in 2009 after winning nine times in 2008 and also winning at Homestead. Asked about being cast as title contender in 2011, Edwards said, Dont do that again. It didnt work worth a damn (in 2009). Only Petty and Earnhardt, each with seven titles, have won more than Johnson. His, of course, have been in a row. How can NASCAR tinker with the Chase, given the results of the season just ended? A Ford driver has won the Ford 400 six times in the last seven years. Coincidence? Edwards new gimmick is greeting the fans by joining them in the grandstands after his celebratory back flip. Wonder how thats going to work if a victory is, shall we say, controversial? Kyle Buschs overall victory total in 2010 was 24: three Sprint Cup, eight Camping World Truck and 13 Nationwide. HarvickHarvick didnt put up much of a defense to the notion that he dumped Busch, saying Busch had raced (him) like a clown all day. After the race, when Denny Hamlin remarked that it was the same way Harvicks teammates had raced him, Harvick said, simply, I just parked yours (Busch). NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: Give Harvick credit. Hes no weasel. He owns up to his actions, whether everyone agrees or not.KEVIN HARVICK VS.

This event offers the best of both worlds: my home track and the opportunity to share the spirit of the holidays with thousands of guests attending the event. Bass, who has designed color schemes for many of NASCARs teams, designed a holiday-themed Toyota Camry pace car for Carolina Christmas, featuring CMS mascot Lug Nut and a host of holiday characters. The pace car will also be on hand at Christmas parades throughout the Charlotte region. Bass also provided a North Pole art gallery in the Sprint Cup garage for Carolina Christmas, which opened on Nov. 22 and runs at the speedway every night through Jan. 2.

Box 1538, Gastonia, N.C. 28053.Gotta Keep The Rules Alive And Out ThereDear NASCAR This Week, Two reasons (for the sports slump) are that NASCAR fans like me are tired of NASCAR. Two examples: mystery cautions or cautions for the slightest little thing, and only enforcing the rules they want to enforce. (Kyle) Busch went below the line and improved his position (Talladega) and was not forced below the line. He did not win that truck race by the rules that NASCAR themselves make. Those are two quick things why NASCAR is less than it was. I will add a third reason, but it is more of a personal one, Rick Hendricks is the worst thing that ever happened to NASCAR. He has my sympathy for his personal loss, and I wouldnt wish that on anyone, but the fact is he is a convicted felon, although he did buy a pardon, and should have been thrown out of NASCAR. When an organization allows crooks to be team owners, it tells you a lot about the organization. The same thing for (Gene) Haas also. Owners should be limited to two teams, and all affiliations to other teams should be tightly scrutinized and very limited. Ron Bean Pachuta, Miss. Arbitrary rules enforcement was a part of NASCAR long before the slump.

s eem to run contrary to the b est interests of Frazier in s ecuring this temp job he w as just handed. Unless owner Zygi Wilf a ssures him that the job is h is next season and to ride it o ut while giving Jackson a l ook-see, Fraziers intent has t o be showing that he can be a winning coach thereby a ssuring that hell want to k eep Favre around for a w hile. Id like to see Frazier keep t he job, regardless, as hes l ong been seen as an eventua l head coach in the league j ust awaiting his opportunity, a long with him being a form er player with my homet own Bears. And Id like to see the debacle that Favres last season has become come to a merciful end soon. The problem is, those two scenarios arent necessarily compatible.

They participated in the Veterans Council Yard Sale in Spring Lake on Nov. 18-19 and will attend one for Post 25 in Lake Placid in December. They are sending packages of small toiletry items, games and snacks to the service men and women overseas. They send an average of four per month with the cost of postage of $12.50 each. Working together with other Veterans Associations in Highlands County, they each share their windfalls of items donated when possible. As an example, Walgreens donated 1,000 toothbrushes to Post 25 and they in turn gave the Elks Veterans Committee 500 of them. In order to do as much as they do for the local veterans, the committee relies on anonymous donators as well as some who wish to be anonymous. While visiting the local nursing homes, they weekly bring items donated by members of the Lodge as well as outsiders. One 88-year-old woman bakes three dozen cookies a week to give out. Her neighbors have learned about her generosity and to her surprise there often will be flour and sugar at her doo r.

The first was the Peace River Domestic Violence Seminar held at Heartland Florida Hospital Tuesday. The conference room was full with more than 100 people, including a half dozen men. The seminar covered a variety of issues including definition of terms, types of violence, clues to be aware of and actions women take to not only avoid possible violence, but also to report incidence of threats or actual cases of violence. One incidence of violence against a person or property is a clear signal of danger. Ones love or strong feelings for the perpetrator should not excuse nor ignore the incident. Addressing and analyzing the behavior is essential in resolving it and the status of the relationship. Teen violence is also an integral element of the equation.

Military News The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN Associated PressLONDON Are you r eady for your close-up now, K ate? When Prince William p opped the question, he made f iancee Kate Middleton one of t he most-photographed, mostp ursued women in the world. Since the announcement of t he couples engagement, M iddleton dubbed the C inderella of Bucklebury by I talys La Stampa newspaper has adorned front pages a nd websites around the w orld, photographed showing o ff her ring and checking out a possible wedding venue, W estminster Abbey. William is determined she w ill not suffer the hounding e xperienced by his mother, P rincess Diana. But protecti ng her may be difficult in the f ace of insatiable media intere st. Shes the main event n ow, said Max Clifford, B ritains best-known celebrity p ublicist and that means M iddleton will have to watch h er every step. She shouldnt be rollers kating in hot pants, Clifford s aid, referring to a muchr eprinted 2008 photo of M iddleton looking unsteady o n wheels at a charity disco e vent. Shes got to eat, b reathe, drink and sleep Whats good for the royals, w hat would be bad for the royals? She may be marrying a future king, but many British people say they dont envy Middleton. I feel bad for the poor girl, said Kayla Healey, 25, a social worker from Brighton in southern England. Shes been able to stay out of the limelight pretty much the entire time and now she is going to be absolutely bombarded. At least she has a good guide in William. The 28year-old grew up in the public eye, a handsome royal pinup, and seems to have coped well. William appears comfortable in front of the cameras unlike his father, Prince Charles, who is often stiff and pointedly ignores the gaggle of royal reporters who cover his engagements. But Williams ease hides a deep-seated mistrust, rooted in the media hounding experienced by his mother, who was pursued by paparazzi until her death in a Paris car crash in 1997. The intense scrutiny endured by Britains royals is partly the reason William waited so long to ask Middleton to marry him. In an interview this week, William said he wanted to give her a chance to see in and to back out if she needed to before it all got too much. Im trying to learn from lessons done in the past, he said. The rules of the media game have changed since Dianas death, for which many hold the press at least partly responsible. Acoroners inquest concluded that she died because of grossly negligent driving by her driver, Henri Paul. The paparazzi were following them. Since Dianas death the royal family has become more savvy and more willing to go to court, where the right to privacy has ben strengthened by a series of British legal rulings over the past decade. Rod Dadak, a privacy expert with London law firm Lewis Silkin, said there is a widespread feeling that William and Kate should be allowed to enjoy their engagement without being pursued all the time. Of course they are celebrities, but they are entitled to a private life like anyone else up to a point, he said. Where that point lies is a matter for negotiation, and occasionally litigation. While William was a student at St. Andrews University in Scotland, the British press agreed to leave him alone, in return for occasional photo opportunities arranged by the palace. Queen-to-be Kate Middleton is global media magnet

Why do w e allow our procrastination t o play havoc with our lives y ear after year? I want to h elp you cruise through this h oliday season with FLYing c olors. Our main problem is that i t all seems like so much w ork to us. This is why we p ut it off another day. Who w ants to work; we had much r ather play and that is what w e are going to do. We are h eaded for a cruise; that is w e are going to pretend to g o on a two-week cruise just b efore Christmas. We will n ot be home till Dec. 21. If w e are to have an enjoyable c ruise our holiday plans h ave to be complete before w e set foot on the ship. Our goal is to have all the g ifts purchased, wrapped and u nder the tree. This means t hat our home has to have a d ecorated tree and holiday f ood waiting in the pantry f or us to prepare when we a rrive home. We wont have t ime to do much shopping w hen our cruise is over. We h ave a few weeks to do this. A ll we have to do is take b abysteps. We need a plan. This is m y gift to you this holiday season; a Holiday Control Journal that is free for you to download on my Web site www.FlyLady.net. All you have to do is put a little action with this plan and you will be cruising toward your most peaceful celebration ever. While you are on my Web site check out our link to Holiday Cruising Missions videos to help you take your babysteps. We used a basic weekly plan to develop the Holiday Cruising Missions. Dont think that you have missed the boat. We have plenty of time. Get started today. Monday Clean and Fling: In order to have fun this holiday season we need to start with our routines keeping our home looking nice. You cant organize clutter this is why we have to fling the clutter so that our home are easier to keep clean. Tuesday Plan and Play: Oh do we love to play and make lists. We set aside a few minutes each Tuesday to fill our need to play. Decorating our homes is fun when we dont try to kill ourselves by doing it all at once. Using this day to make our plans and implement them helps us to take our babysteps and be ready to Cruise Through the Holidays. Wednesday Anti-procrastination Day: The buck stops here. No longer can put off doing things like wrapping presents and addressing Christmas cards; this is our day to stop procrastinating and do just a little to make our cruise a reality. Thursday Go and Do: When we make our list of things to do and then get out into the world and do them; amazing things get accomplished. Before we know it we are checking things off of our list and we are Cruising Through the Holidays. Many things we can finish without having to leave the house by using the Internet: Postage stamps and gift shopping. Friday Budget dont Begrudge it: The holidays can play havoc with our checkbook balances and our credit cards when we wait to the last minute to purchase gifts and buy the extra food that makes our holiday special. Plan for your purchases and make a simple budget and stick to it. Friday is your day to check your Holiday Control Journal and make sure you are staying within your predetermined budget for the holidays. Your checkbook and credit cards will thank you come January. This makes not only the holidays peaceful but the New Year has a great start without the holiday debt dragging you down. Are you ready to Cruise Through the Holidays.

However, when I first meet a man, I move slowly. If I agree to a date, I meet him at a public place. After a few dates, Ill share my email address so we can communicate more easily. And, Abby, thats when the trouble starts. Over the past few years, several men have e-mailed me nude photos of themselves after I gave them my contact information. Im not a prude, but I feel it was disrespectful. I broke up with each of them and deleted their photos from my computer. Please lend me some advice and insight here. Until then, Im considering remaining single forever. Seen It All in San Antonio DearSeen It All: Im surprised you didnt sign yourself Seen Too Much. Where are you meeting these creepy individuals? Before the Internet, they used to be called flashers. Because this has happened to you more than once in the past few years, its time to ask yourself if somehow you may have given the impression that you would be receptive to this kind of contact. In other words, think about the signals you may be sending after a few dates. DearAbby: With the holidays coming, I know Ill be spending time with my boyfriends family. Every time I see his father (who is a poor excuse for a dad) he asks when Im going to give him grandbabies. This has gone on for five years. I am not even married to his son, and I dont plan on having any children. He makes me feel like I dont deserve his son if I dont have children. (My boyfriend already has a son from a previous relationship.) I have tried to answer him nicely. I have even tried to be rude, but he just doesnt get it. I would like to know how to respond to him. I certainly do not want it to affect his familys Christmas, but I feel I should stick up for myself. Please help. Wants No Babies in Ne w Yo rk DearWants No Babies: Smile and tell the nervy ge ntleman he can expect you to give him grandbabies after you start feeling maternal, and when you begin to feel maternal hell be the first to know. Do not pick a fight with him, and dont spend much time with him. Apparently, your boyfriend got his brains from his mot her. And now, Dear Readers, I am pleased to offer the trad itional Thanksgiving Prayer that was penned by my dea r mother, Pauline Phillips. N o Thanksgiving would be com plete for me without it. Oh, Heavenly Father, We thank Thee for food and remember the hungry. We thank Thee for health and remember the sick. We thank Thee for freedom and remember the enslaved. May these remembrances stir us to service, That Thy gifts to us may be used for others. Amen. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
