By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Two wild fires within four days highlight the dangerous conditions that currently exist in the wooded areas of Highlands County. Thursday saw a fire that consumed 15 acres south of Northern Boulevard and east of Henscratch Road. Sunday afternoons fire near Henscratch Road and Lake Josephine Road burned about five acres. The only reason no homes were at risk Sunday was simply a matter of luck. The wind pushed the fire away from them. Human error was involved in both fires. Thursday a contained debris fire got out of control. Sunday, juveniles camping in the woods did not properly extinguish their campfire, which then escaped into the surrounding woods. Melissa Yunas, fire mitigation specialist with the Division of Forestry, said people have to be extra careful right now. Conditions are ripe for fire. The early frost killed most of the undergrowth, creating a source of ready tinder. Combine that with drought conditions, which have dried out trees and soil, add significant winds, said Yunas, and Wildfire danger is high in county Two fires in last week started by negiligence See FIRE, page 5A By ED BALDRIDGE e d.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING Commissioners decided to side with county staff at their meeting on Jan. 24, voting 5-0 to voluntarily terminate a $1.055 million federal grant. According to County Engineer Ramon Gavarrete, staff determined they could not meet the timelines set forth by the Federal Highway Administration, and was therefore asking that the board terminate the grant. Some of those requirements we could not get done by April of this year, Gavarrete said. The grant from the U.S. Department of Energy was planned to coordinate 14 stop lights from College Drive south along U.S. 27 to Highlands Avenue. Gavarrete explained that the interconnection of the traffic lights would have coordinated the way the traffic flowed along U.S. 27 and was central to building a traffic management center in the future. Eventually we are going to get there, but we are going to have to get there a different way, Gavarrete said. e tried to work with the Department of Transportation District 1, Gavarrete said.

Not only do they execute runs of forward flips and back f lips, lift, spin and catch one another high in the air, they have to have the stamina to complete the twor ounds of a non-stop 212minute routine. Degree of difficulty, as well as e xecution, is part of the score. Cheerleaders are teams, their w ork based on trust, communication and practice, practice, practice. To rise to the top tiers in competition, cheerleader teams have to be synchronized, precise, tight andc lean in all their movements, both as individuals and a group. It is rare to get this kind of discipline and attention to detail at the middle school level particularly because so many of the young athletes are still beginners. T his is why the cheer team at Avon Park Middle School is newsw orthy. It is headed to the nationals competition in Orlando.

E arly voting results showed 10 percent of Republicans had cast their vote by Friday, participating in both the early voting oppor-t unities or via absentee process. As of 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Campbell said t hat 3,086 out 26,604 registered Republicans had cast their vote. Approximately 1,885, or 7.09 percent, v oted early Tuesday morning. Absentee numbers were smaller, but about what was expected, at 663 votes. T he polls were scheduled to close by 7 p.m. on Tuesday, but Campbell said his crew w ould be there until the last vote was counted. Campbell would not discuss any of the specific candidates. I am hoping that all the modems work p roperly. We should have the final results by 7:45 p.m., Campbell said. Highlands voters had to choose from Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Gary Johnson, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum. Just Gingrich, Romney, Paul andS antorum were still in the race. GOPofficials in Florida expected a t urnout of more than 2 million statewide, according to an Associated Press report.

C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comS EBRING The Heartland Idol competition will continue in two short weeks on Feb. 12 with nearly 20 contestants ready to singt heir hearts out. Last weekends preliminary round brought in a handful of kid, teen and adult singers to center stage at the Highlands County Convention Center. The junior Idol round brought in kids 5-12 years old, five of which moved on to the next round Kaelie Christian, 11; Larissa Meagher, 11; Bella Marrero, 7; Ashton Dennison, 6; Lauren Eubanks, 11. The Teen Idol division brought in eight contestants who competed for a spot in the final rounds of the competition. The five Teen Idol performers that advanced to the next round are Kiana Vassell, 14; Asia Grace Gilroy, 15; Abigail Hemmett, 15; Kaeli Spurlock, 15; and Jennifer Moore, 13. For the adult division, 12 performers graced the stage and six were named semifinalists. e had a tie so instead of breaking it up we just decided to pass them both through, said Idol founder Diana Walker. The adult division showcased the talents of the young and the young at heart.S emifinalists are Amanda Mercer, 32; Mark Brignoni, 24; Jennifer Buchnan, 29; Ashley Elder, 26; Shana Barfield-Carroll, 26; andC harlie Barksdale, 84. The six adult performers will also hit the stage and battle it out for the coveted title of Heartland Idol. Walker spoke Tuesday morning about the first round of the competition. I think it went good. The first show of Idol is always a little rough and bumpy, but we work it out. We will be getting together later this week to work on the next show, Walker said. The smaller-than-normal crowd was the one downside to Idols opening, Walker said. I wouldve liked to see a few more people there but our favorite and faithful people were, so we were happy, of course, Walker said. The Feb. 12 semifinals will take place on the heels of the Highlands County Fairs Junior and Miss Highlands County pageant so Walker is hoping those events will add to Idols numbers and entertainment factor. e will be using the same stage as they will. I dont know what they have planned for their theme, but we are looking forward to our stage being more decorated,W alker said. The semifinals will begin at 1 p.m. Feb. 12 with the finals to follow that night. Audience members must payt he price of admission for the Highlands County Fair to gain entry into Heartland Idol.

Commissioners wanted the original option of a simple cross intersectionw ith College Drive. SFCC asked for a complicated Yintersection that routes traffic north a long Memorial into Avon Park that would require more engineering and land acquisition, explained Gavarrete. The $6.05 million Phase III of the Parkway picks up from Phase I at the9 0-degree turn, allows traffic to continue straight and curves back to the north as a two-lane road connecting with Memorial Drive at College Drive approximately 4.1 miles later. C ounty staff said that $3 million of the funding would come from a Florida Department of Transportation County I nitiative Grant and $3.5 million of the funds come from the local option gas tax. Gavarrete said SFCC was concerned about the amount of traffic that wouldb e directed onto College Drive to U.S. 27 if the original intersection was used. Commissioner Ron Handley stopped the presentation of how Phase III would be built at the intersection discussion Commission concerned about Parkway corner at College Drive Layout suggested by college would cost extra $385,000 See PARKWAY, page 5A Correction News-Sun photo by KATARASIMMONS L arissa Meagher, 11, Bella Marrero, 7, Kaelie Christian, 11, Ashton Dennison, 6, Lauren E ubanks, 11, advanced to the Heartland Idol semifinal round.

Men and women b etween the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with canc er are needed to participate in the American Cancer Societys Cancer Preventive Study-3 (CPS3). C PS-3 will enroll a diverse population of up to half a million people across the United States and Puerto Rico. Theo pportunity for local residents to enroll in CPS-3 w ill take place at the Relay For Life of LakeP lacid on Saturday, March 24. CPS-3 will help researchers better understand the lifestyle, envi-r onmental and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer. To enroll in the study, individuals complete twos teps, one in person and one at home. As part of the in-person enrollment, individuals complete a brief written survey, provide some physical measurements and give a small blood sample. The enrollment process is complete when individuals complete the more comprehensive baseline survey. Over the course of the study, which is anticipated to last 20-30 years, participants will be asked to fill out follow-up surveys every few years that will be sent to their home. Many individuals diagnosed with cancer struggle to answer the question, What caused my cancer? In many cases, we dont know the answer said Alpa V. Patel, Ph.D., principal investigator of CPS-3. CPS-3 will help us better understand what factors cause cancer and once we know that, we can be better equipped to prevent cancer. Dr. Patel added, Our previous cancer prevention studies have been instrumental in helping us identify some of the major factors that can affect cancer risk. CPS-3 holds the best hope of identifying new and emerging cancer risks and we can only do this if members of the community are willing to become involved.

C M Y K I ndividuality, however, does have a dark side. It can (and many would argue that it already does) eat away at the sense of community. Weh ave been debating this reality in the newsroom lately, especially as it regards recentt rends in medical care. There is a growing movement to blame the peoplew ho become ill or develop chronic diseases like e mphysema or diabetes for their own troubles. Why should those who do not uset obacco or eat an unhealthy diet have to share the burden o f medical costs for those who do? This point of view overlooks the essence of being human, as well as the stresso f living in difficult times. We believe most of us can a gree human beings are vulnerable, imperfect creatures. We do the best we can, butm ostly learn from our mistakes. T he idea that we each have equal reserves of discipline a nd wisdom is simply unrealistic. Those who have never awakened with a hangover still have moments theyr egret, like reaching into the knife drawer without looking. No one is perfect. E xpecting exemplary behavior from individuals every day of their lives is asi rrational as expecting to never die. H umans are social animals. We congregate into cities and neighborhoods,g ather together at important moments, and rely on extende d families and close friends. Cowboys may be rugged individualists, but pioneers traveled west in wagon trains, sharing the risks andp rotecting one another. In times of trouble and m atters of life and death Americans have a wellearned reputation for pullingt ogether and reaching out a helping hand. We send aid to f looded communities, even if the houses were built in a f lood plain. When a house catches fire, no one expects a family to put it out on their own, even if the reason for the fire was a pot carelessly left on a stove. To suddenly become judgmental, cold and self-serving w hen it comes to health care is a betrayal of our national c haracter. And where does the judgment stop? Should we ignore the man who touches a power line while trimming a tree? Or the woman who is thrown from a c ar because she didnt wear h er seat belt? Do we shrug our shoulders and say, You were stupid, too bad.? W hat comes next? Refusing care to the elderly b ecause it is expensive? D ropping premature babies i nto the Everglades to avoid the cost of saving their lives? The fact is that our medical system is seriously broken, and that has nothing to do with the patients in it. The very idea that medical care is a for-profit industry, a nd that insurance companies h ave the right to approve or d isapprove treatments are closer to the heart of the problem. Scapegoating those who get sick, instead of tackling the difficult, underlyingi ssues, only makes our situation worse. The first step to any solution is to stop asking Whatsi n it for me? and remember whats in it for us.

One of the things we treasure most about being Americans is the right to live our lives to the fullest, and to do so in ways that suit us as individuals. Theres been a reversal of for-t unes between Canada and America, and Im not happy about it. A ccording to The Economist, Canada is doing well as America continues to strug-g le. Our wiser, more cautious friends to then orth avoided the housing bubble and financial collapse of 2008. Theyr eturned to robust growth in 2009 and have been g rowing since. Unlike America, Canadas debt and deficitsa re in good order. Canada expects to balance its b udget by 2015 whereas Americas budget comes up short every month. Canada, like America, is blessed with naturalr esources, such as minerals, timber and oil. Unlike A merica, Canada isnt afraid to tap its resources and sell them to otherc ountries for a bundle. Heck, our president just t old the Canadians he doest want a pipeline that would pump Canadian oil t o U.S. refineries and a lot of dough into America. Canadas credit rating remains at AAA high for economic health and stabil-i ty whereas Americas was cut for the first time in history. More unemployed Americans are fleeingn orth, where good-paying work is available, thanks to u nemployment nearly 2 percentage points lowert han ours. Though I am happy for Canada, this turn of events is most unsettling to me. Didnt Canada used to s uffer from big-government policies and out-of-control spending, whereas America was always the great highgrowth capitalist successs tory? Wasnt it Canadian doctors who used to skate in the dark of night across frozen lakes to accept finepaying jobs in Americas mostly private health-care system? With the advent of ObamaCare, will American doctors be skating north? Wasnt it Canadians avoiding their countrys high value-added taxes who used to travel to U.S. shopping malls and discount stores, where they bought up all the good stuff before Americans could get at it? Every winter, their plundering left Americans without a dequate supplies of ChapStick, beef jerky and down jackets. With U.S. s pending, deficits and debt completely out of control, how long will it be before higher taxesa re imposed here? Before somebody proposes a national value-a dded sales tax on Americansevery transaction? W ill Americans be traveling north to do their s hopping? Heres whats even nuttier: Canada, with its proudh istory of big-government initiatives such as health c are, is now led by a procapitalist conservative, whereas America is led by a fellow whos trying to turn his country intoW estern Europe. As President Obama c ontinues to spread the wealth around, grow government and look for wayst o raise taxes to pay for it all, Canadas prime minist er believes a pro-growth approach is the best way to fund his countrys social p rograms. Heres what one of the prime ministers spokesmen told Postmedia News: I think Canadas record h as always been one that we are firm believers in the markets and we know that prosperity, through capitalism in markets, is ultimate-l y what pays for all the things that we enjoy here i n Canada. Sheesh! I remember w hen U.S. presidents believed such things. In any event, a reversal of Canadian and American fortunes appears to haveo ccurred. So I have a proposition for our friends up north: Hey, Canada, want to switch leaders for a while? I snt our president more suited to your traditions, whereas your prime minister is more suited to ours? Well give him back once he gets U.S. unemployment below 7 percent.

Providing this forum for our readers is a pleasure, not an obligation. The fleecing of home and property ownersEditor: An open letter to all state governors: Government does not make new land, they just change the property codes and taxes to separate you from your property. This way they sell the same property many times. As the humorist, Will Rogers of the 1920s and 1930s would say: Folks, you have been fleeced by both your elected officials and the top 1 percent. How does it feel to be fleeced out of your farms and homes? Where the hell is your back bones? The creating of state entities duplicating county government. Entities that change property codes and taxes so as to be able to tax small villages into foreclosure. We, the people in Spring Lake, blocked the change in property code by the state legislators that would have put many of our homes and properties into foreclosure. Acode that the state legislators proposed. I have contacted the state governor on the matter of small state entitiesability to tax property and the fraud it created. He chose to do nothing. We the people need to change the way we elect all public servants. We need all states to enact term limits, local, state and federal. The 99 percent are fleeced by the 1 percent. This cannot stand. We must demand more of our leadership. Billie E. Jewett SebringDebates like dog and pony showEditor: From a GOPTVcommercial: Havent we had enough mistakes? Obviously theyre referring to their own eight disastrous years of Republican mistakes made by that biggest presidential mistake of all time, George Bring em on Bush. Every single problem that this country is facing today originated during those eight years. The housing mess was created by the lack of oversight of banks, mortgage lenders and real estate companies (see belowThey let industry and business police themselves or in other words let the fox guard the hen house. They started a war based on lies, remember a mushroom cloud over New York. Over $1 trillion borrowed down the drain. Close to 5,000 young American soldiers dead, and another 30-40,000 severely injured, who should and must be helped for the rest of their lives, such as it is. The loss of thousands of jobs, many to overseas companies. So who do the Republicans blame for the mess they created? Why President Obama of course. The worst part is that there are those poor deluded Republican voters who believe such nonsense. From CNN: Thanks to the housing bust there has been a substantial increase in empty homes. The number of vacant housing units jumped an astonishing 43.8 percent to 15 million in 2010, up from 10.4 million in 2000. In Nevada, ground zero for foreclosures in the years 2003-2008, vacancies grew to nearly 143 percent of all homes. Georgia vacancies jumped 82.7 percent, Floridas 62.6 percent and Arizonas 61 percent. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made $42.7 million over the past two years, and paid $6.2 million in taxes, according to documents released on 1/24/2012. Atypical Highlands County Republicans income or so they would have you believe. Romney is one of the wealthiest candidates in history to seek the U.S. presidency. So how can he relate to the working man? Those hilarious so-called debates put on by the republican wannabes were no more than Dog and Pony Shows, thats when two or more people pretend to have a very public grievance with each other in order to create publicity and buzz for themselves, with an often over-staged performance. Pro wrestling is full of dog and pony acts. Sandy Oleesky Sebring BouquetDiary of Anne Frank helps with studyEditor: Sebring Middle Schools faculty and eighth-grade students would like to thank Highlands Little Theatres cast and crew for providing us with the opportunity to atttend a performance of The Diary of Anne Frank. Our students studied the Holocaust as well as the play, so to see the drama performed was a wonderful way to culminate that unit of study. To director Allan Grosman and his crew, we were grateful for this experience. Since Mr. Grosmans own parents were Holocaust survivors, there was a special poignancy in the actorsportrayal of the events. We thank HLTfor providing us with the historical depiction of such a sad time in history. Its our hope that through education such tragic events will not be repeated. Finally, we want to thank our schools angel and staff member, Kristin Taylor, who played Mrs. Frank in the play. Her initiative and efforts made this is a reality for 250 students.

W esley Cady, along with his roomate, 60-year-old David Griffin, were rescuedf rom a fire at 237 S. Orange St. that started in one of the t wos bed around 3:30 a.m. on Jan. 22. They were both out of t he apartment when we got there, and EMS was already l oading them and preparing to leave so we went right to work on the fire. We could not confirm who was sleeping in which bed, but thef ire was definitely caused by smoking materials on a m attress, Sebring Fire Chief Brad Batz confirmed Monday. C ady reportedly suffered burns over 60 percent of his b ody, a report from the Hillsborough Medical Examiner stated. Most of the damage was from the heat and smoke. There was not a lot of flame a nd very little fire damage to the room. It did not even pierce the sheetrock. It took us less than a minute to extinguish the fire and itw as just starting to flame when we got there. But mattresses can smolder for hours like that, Batz said. Aneighbor, John M artinez, smelled smoke but had difficulties entering the apartment, according toB atz. Martinez had finally opened the front door with ac rowbar when Sebring Police Officer Joshua C opeland and Highlands County Sheriffs Deputy Donovan Cooper arrived ont he scene. Copeland and Cooper h elped Cady and Griffin from the house, and both victims were transported to Tampa General Burn Unit in critical condition afterr eceiving initial treatment from Highlands Regional M edical Center. The state fire marshal ruled the fire accidentala fter determining the cause and the location of the fire. B atz did know the status of Griffin on Monday, but stated that he was still in c ritical condition last Wednesday. Smoking in bed leads to death of Sebring man Second man c ritically injured wooded areas are a fire waiting to happen. The rain on Friday was not enough to help. It probably didnt pass the tree canopy Yunas said, or the dead vegetation on the forest floor. It didnt reach into the floor No names of those involved have been released as the investigations are under way, said Yunas. The individuals, however, may be charged with violations, including arson, due to new state laws and may be liable for the cost of fighting the fires as well. Property owners are the first line of defense. To protect homes clear an area of at least 30 feet around the buildings. Keep things clean, lean and green, Yunas said. Make sure roof tops and gutters are clear of dead leaves. Fire brands that is burning leaves or twigs can travel as far as a quarter of a mile in the wind.

Fire watch in effect due to dry conditions ous that the timeline required by the Federal Transportation Department could not be met. Due to the time limits and the time it took to decide if we could move it to the Parkway, we could not get an extension on the grant, Gavarrete said. Synchronizing the lights could help the flow of traffic with less stop and go and thus increase capacity, deterring the need for more lanes in the near future, Gavarrete explained. Gavarrete looked at converting the grant to the S ebring Parkway and a wireless system, but did not explain how that would help with the federal timeline restrictions. The good news is that we are eliminating a major project, said Commissioner Barbara Stewart, who made the motion to voluntarily cancel the grant. And not spending some money, Chairman Jack Richie said. Some money the Federal Government does not have, Commissioner Don Elwell added to a spattering of applause form the audience. Continued from page 1A COMMUNITYBRIEFS County terminates Dept. of Energy grant Associated PressGAINESVILLE Asplit decision between two pastors regarding when tor eturn to the Atlanta area from Florida was the difference between life and death. Theyd just finished a religious conference in Florida on Saturday night andd ebated when they and their accompanying parishoners would return home. Senior pastor Arao Amazonas said he wanted to wait until the next morning to leave. But pastor Jose Carmo Jr. wantedt o be back in time for the suburban Atlanta churchs Sunday morning service and led two vans up Interstate 75t oward Georgia. Afew hours later, Amazonas received an early-morning call: Both vans hadc rashed in the highways fogand smoke-shrouded darkness near G ainesville, Fla. Carmo, his wife and their daughter were among five church members killed in two deadly pileupsa long the always busy six-lane interstate. e couldnt have imagined such tragedy would come to us, said Amazonas, senior pastor at the IgrejaI nternacional de Restaurcao, or International Church of the Restoration. In all, a total of 10 people were killed in the crash. The accident happened after the Florida Highway Patrol hadr eopened the interstate after an earlier serious accident. Asergeant and lieutenant determined after about three hours that conditions had cleared enough for drivers, but visibility quick-l y became murky again, officials said Monday. Florida Gov. Rick Scott has ordered an investigation into that deci-s ion. e went through the area. We made an assessment. We came to the conclu-s ion that the road was safe to travel and that is when we opened the road up, H ighway patrol spokesman Lt. Patrick Riordan said in a news conference. Drivers have to recognize that the envi-r onment changes. They have to be prepared to make good judgments. At least a dozen cars, six tractor-trailers and a motorhome collided about 3:45 a.m. Sunday. Some cars werec rushed under the bellies of big rigs. Others burst into flames and sent metal shrapnel flying through the air, horrifying witnesses watching the violence along Interstate 75 in calls to 911.E ighteen survivors were hospitalized. In a 911 recording released Monday, a driver and her passengers told a dispatcher the fog and smoke from the 62acre brush fire was so thick they could-n t see. I think there was another accident behind us because I heard it, a womans aid. Oh my gosh, its so dark here. In the same 911 call, another woman took the phone and screamed an exple-t ive as she hears another crash. That was a truck. We cannot see. Its l ike impossible to see, the caller said. The smoke is very thick you can see obviously only your hand in front. I doh ear an ambulance or police officer coming down the road.

Nine of this years 14-girl team were a part of that group, and theyw ere determined to raise their level of performance in o rder to win this year. They set a goal last year, Goudge said. Theyh ad it in their minds. It was a group decision. The five ( new) girls stepped up. Goudge watched the team warm up. These are good kids, she said. They are very good about really, real-l y working. They eat, breath and sleep cheerleading, w orking 10 to 15 hours a week after school. In addition they attend o pen gym at the Edge Cheer Center in Sebring twice a w eek, summer camps and practice at home. Erica Douberley, whose d aughter is a member of the team, has respect for the way Goudge works with the girls. Shes strict. When they get tired, she keeps them going, D ouberley said. The girls, she added, have to maintain their grade point average and have no referrals. It keeps them out of trouble. O ut on the mats, Goudge was critiquing the teams movements as the young athletes practiced their routine. Legs have to be together all the time, she called out. No slop, nice and tight.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comS EBRING And so the season for Lady Blue Streak basketball came to a close Monday, falling to the Blue D evils of Winter Haven 7043, in one of those games that w as not at all indicative of t he final score. Looking to keep their season alive for at least one more game in this, the district tournament on their home floor, Sebring knew some adjustments were needed against the top-seeded Devils. The first time we played them, they were able to penetrate our zone, which is what they want to do, head coach Mike Lee said. The next time, we packed the zone in more and took that away. But then they started hitting three pointers. The plan coming in this time was to prevent the penetration, but be quick enough to get out on their shooters. Though, against a team as talented a Winter Haven, such plans are often easier said than done. Cynkeria Mobley got things rolling with a drive for two of her game-high 18 points, and Destynee Arnold got inside for two for an early 4-0 lead. The Streaks chipped back and tied it with buckets from Rondaja Williams and Jamiese Wiley. Khadijah Howell answered inside but Wiley countered with a 12-foot jumper to keep things even. Bria Patterson split a pair a t the line and Mobley drove again, but a Shalontay Rose stop-and-pop and an Allie Mann score on a fast break s andwiched a Patterson score and it was a narrow 11-10 B lue Devil lead after one. We got them out of their zone press, which we havent done before, Lee said. We were passing long over it and they came out of it. Their coach called time out with 16 seconds left in the first quarter, so we had them thinking. They surely did, as Sebring took a brief lead to open the second on a Williams follow. Zeneka Willix got the lead back with a jumper and Howell extended it with a three-pointer. But Mann hit a three of her own, with Wiley and Rose each answering a Mobley score to keep it a 20-19 game midway through the period. couple little mistakes and a team like this will take advantage, Lee said. Which was the case as a few minor miscues lead to a 10-point Winter Haven run. April Wallace hit a free throw to halt it, but Mobley added a jumper just before the half for a 32-20 Devil lead. If we could have just kept it a little closer at the half, who knows what could have happened, Lee said. All the more so, because the Lady Streaks kept up the battle in the third and wouldt let Winter Haven run away with it. Arnold scored to open the period, but Williams and Rose both hit jumpers. Apair of Devil threes extended the lead, but Wiley had a put-back and Wallace banked one in from the wing. Howell and Willix would score, but Mann flipped in a reverse, Destiny Sutton banked in a three and Wallace dropped in a floater to cut it to 45-36 heading into the final eight minutes. Unfortunately, this little flurry would be the last as Winter Haven would ride a 25-7 edge in the fourth to provide for the final margin. It was a great effort for three quarters, Lee said. I think we got a little tired at the end, with the starters playing a lot of minutes. But there were a lot of good things. This was a game where we knew wed have to play really, really good and hope they were off a little. We did that for a while and for the first time, they didnt get to a running clock. e saw a lot of improvement this year, a lot of progress. This is a great group of girls who really worked hard.

Lady Streaks bedeviled Winter Haven70S ebring43 By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comWith a roster chock-full of new players, it would be a relative surprise if the South Florida Panthers jumped out of the gate on fire. And while the 0-3 record after the first weekend of the 2012 season would show that it might take some time for the team to come together, the competitiveness that has been shown seems to indicate it likely wont be a long wait. After Fridays narrow clipping by Daytona State, the Panthers hit the road S aturday and Sunday, for contests at Seminole State and Lake Sumter, respectively. B oth resulted in two-run l osses, 6-4 to Seminole and 8-6 at Sumter, showing that even with a slow start, theres not much of a difference to m ake up. Our starting pitching has really been good early on, head coach Rick Hitt said. It has been our transition to the bullpen within games that has been a little rocky So it is a matter of tinkeri ng with the arms, while the b ats seem to be doing the job Panthers slow out of the gate Special to the News-SunSEBRING The long balls were plentiful Wednesday, Jan. 25, in Sebring 60-plus Softball League action. At least for the Cubs J ohn Bang Bang Buja, who tattooed four over the fence in a 26-15 win over the Angels. Gary Tankersley also bombed one downtown, while adding a triple and two singles to his stat sheet. Don Dobbert had two doubles and three singles for the winners, with Fred Richardson tallying four hits and Eddie Lindberg, Kayle Saunders and Larry Ambuel each added three hits. The Angels were lead by Brian Balcombe, Brian Pluta, Charlie Quinn and Tom McNally, with three hits apiece, though they werent enough as Rudy Pribble earned the win on the mound. I n the battle of the stockings, the Red Sox topped the White Sox, 135, behind the four-hit perf ormances of Jesse Hathaway and Jim Radcliffe. Bob Poulin had a double and two singles and Dick Ostreck was the winning pitcher. J.C. Brown and George Lavorie both had two base-knocks for the Pale Socks. In Monday, Jan. 23, action, the White Sox bested the Cubs by an 189 score, with Don C unningham totaling four hits while winning pitcher J.C. Brown and Craig Sutcliff added three each. The Cubs got four hits from Tankersley and Dobbert, with Buja hitting a home run. The Red Sox, meanwhile, edged the Angels, 18-16, behind two doubles and a home run from Hathaway. W inning pitcher Ostreck chipped in with three hits, as did Harry Bell and Radcliffe. Pluta, Balcombe, Dennis Mitchell, Russ Moody and Woody Woodward all collected three hits, but couldnt quite get the Angels over the hump.

C M Y K By CLIFFBRUNT Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS The Super Bowl is still a few d ays away and city leaders already are looking ahead. Sundays big game will be the first for Indy, and MayorG reg Ballard believes there should be more. I do think the regular c ycle of four-to-five years f or some of the other cities may not be the way to go, but for a city like us with a great volunteer base and a great community support, I think every eight-to-10 years is doable, he said. I think we can get on a regular rotation. Ballard said he wouldnt rush it. I was kidding when I told the host committee that I was going to give them a week to rest, then were going to go for it again. Colts owner Jim Irsay is excited about the chance to show off the city. I think that were going to be able to show the world and everyone that were deserving for a second chance someday down the line, he said. I really do. I think thats the type of job that were going to do here, and the experience is going to be great. Though the Colts finished 2-14 this season, that hasnt shaken Irsays desire to make the event special. This isnt about the Colts, this is about Indianapolis, this is about Indiana, he said.Family Ties Patriots receiver Matt Slater knows better than to take a Super Bowl trip for granted. His father, Jackie Slater, was an offensive lineman for the Los Angeles Rams who played in the Super Bowl after the 1979 season. The Rams lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Jackie Slater never went back to a Super Bowl in a Hall of Fame career that lasted until 1995. I think that was one of the biggest things that he kind of missed on his career is he never won a world championship, Matt Slater said. I knew how much that meant to him because he was a huge team guy Dad already has offered son some advice about handling the pressure in the week leading up to the game. He told me just to do everything I can to prepare myself for the game on Sunday so that I can live with no regrets, the fourthyear player from UCLA said. And realizing that this opportunity is not guaranteed to me in my career again, so just to do everything I can to take advantage of the opportunity and maximize it so, at the end of the day, I have no regrets at all. Matt Slater wasnt around when his father played in the Super Bowl he was born in 1985 but Jackies vivid memories have connected Matt to the experience. Even to this day, he talks about the game, and he can almost call off every play to you and just remember the ebb and flow of the game, Matt Slater said. It meant a lot to him. Unfortunately it didnt work out for him, but its definitely a memory he has and will have as long as he lives.Super ScarvesThe Super Bowl host committee got more than expected out of a simple attempt to look out for its volunteers. Host committee CEO Allison Melangton started the Super Scarves project two years ago to give Indiana residents a chance to make scarves that would help volunteers stay warm during a typically cold time of the year. The project expanded, and now the committee has received blue and white scarves from 46 states and four countries. The goal was to have 8,000 scarves available, but eventually, the host committee received about 13,000. The scarves got attention on a TVepisode of ABCs The Middle. I guess youve arrived when a national sitcom makes fun of something youre doing, Melangton said. Each scarf identified who knitted or croqueted it and included a message of encouragement for the wearer. It was her idea, Mark Miles, chairman of the host committee, said. I thought it couldnt have been more hair-brained, and it couldnt have been more brilliant.Home CookingMathias Kiwanuka might take a few teammates to his mothers home for dinner this week. He cant take all of them. I dont know if I could fit that many people into her h ouse, the New York Giants defensive end said Monday after arriving in Indianapolis. Kiwanuka, the defensive end who attended Cathedral High School in Indy, is keeping things simple. Hell eat moms food, go to bed on time and try to add another Super Bowl ring to the one he won four years ago. A s for all those Super Bowl parties in his hometown, Kiwanukas advice: Theres plenty of time to attend those after Sundays big game against New England.MJD replaces OchoThe Ochocinco News Network will be reporting from the Super Bowl even if its namesake, wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, is a participant when the Patriots play the New York Giants on Sunday. Since New England coach Bill Belichick isnt likely to spring Ochocinco for any broadcast duties, hell be replaced by Jacksonville Jaguars All-Pro running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who has a background in radio reporting for SiriusXM NFLRadio. The wide receiver created OCNN three years ago and has built a social media network that serves an audience of about 1 million. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, February 1, 2012Page 5B UNIVERSAL CENTER OF NATURAL MA; 3.639"; 5"; Black; **internet included**; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 4 4 2 2 2 2 ADVANTAGE FLOOR COVERING; 3.639"; 3"; Black; 2/1,5; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 4 4 3 3 4 4 SPRINGLAKE GOLF RESORT* NEW; 3.639"; 3"; Black; feb. ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 4 4 3 3 7 7 cause.

Our hitters did a great job on Sunday of staying aggress ive, fighting off pitches and putting a bunch of guys on b ase, with 17 hits, Hitt said. e just need to get the right guy up to the plate with men in scoring position. This is, after all, the time of the season to see what there is to work with. The practice season plays itspart, but it is in the heat of competition that the players are forged into a team. They guys are working hard, still trying to get all our new faces acclimated to the college game, approach wise, Hitt said.

Looks like thats changing. Jamesbike ride to work before the Miami Heat played the Chicago Bulls on Sunday was caught by some photographers, and suddenly became quite a talking point. James says he doesnt understand what all the fuss is about, especially since he chooses pedal-power over horse-power on a fairly regular basis. Of course, his bike is not like any other custommade, even with his King James name emblazoned on the frame. James has long been a fan of cycling, and has hosted several offseason bike rides to draw attention to charitable causes in his Akron, Ohio, hometown during his NBAcareer. And for the record, James drove to work Monday. He scored 22 points as Miami beat New Orleans 109-95 on Monday night. LeBron rides bike to work even before some games

The pollution is very greatt here and many people wear masks every day to defend themselves against the pollution. The food markets are not like ours; they are all open markets with meat, vegetables, fish, dog, cat, snake and other foods laying out in the open with no regulation or sanitary conditions. Charlie told club members there is no middle class in China. You drive a BMWor a moped. They visited many American companies operating in China. The favorite American president of the Chinese was Richard Nixon because he opened trade between China and the United States. They always show the two finger sign made famous by Nixon. He said every university student they met wanted to come to America to live, which gave Charlie faith in America. Charlie understood why some might want to come to America when he visited the China countryside. The landscape was littered with trash of all kinds and animal parts. He could not believe the condition of the land. There are 800 million farmers in China, but no c ompetition between them and many are very small pieces of ground. The cropst hey raise only produce 40 percent of those planted, b ecause they do not use fertilizer. They do not believe the use of fertilizer is right. A ll of the people in the countryside live below p overty levels. Charlie feels that China needs help to maximize their farming, sot hey can help feed the world in the future. Their own anim als need 70 million tons of soybeansfor feed each year. They get much of that fromt he United States. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, February 1, 2012Page 7B hometown biz; 9.347"; 13"; Black plus three; process, hometown biz dummy; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 5 5 5 5 6 6 3 3 S pecial to the News-SunAVON PARK The home at 108 Jim R odgers Avenue brings to mind an ivy-covered English cottage with its white picket fence and vine-covered arch. The only thing missing is the ivy. This picturesque setting has been achieved by Fred Morris and PhilipH ash. The Yard of the Month Award was presented to the men by the Avon Park Founders Garden Club, after being recommended by more than one person. The arch, covered with Carolina jasmine, w elcomes visitors to the yard. Low growing juniper form a line along the front of the fence. The walkway is lined with dustym iller and snapdragons. Potted miniature North Carolina pines flank the door to the house. Afountain adds interest to a cornera rea against the left front of the house. In another corner of the yard pampas grass can b e seen rising the fence. Other plants in the front yard include split leaf philodendron, oleander and hawthorne. Crepe myrtle treesl ine the southern boundary of the yard. As eye-catching as the front yard is, the b ack yard is a well-kept secret. An arboratum had been added to the back of the house. This is covered with a beautiful blooming passion flower vine. An area where a swimming pool had been now holds several vari-e ties of lilies, including stripedand solidleafed cannas, trio star and stromanthe cann as. Lorepetalum is also in this circle. There are many points of interest in other sections of the yard. An old concrete laundry tubh olds ivy and caladiums. Abarrel fountain brings the soothing sound of trickling water; E nglish ivy overflows from pots placed along the perimeter. Adifferent strain of M exican petunia encircles a topiary shaped from boxwood. Oyster plants, blue iris, A frican iris, bougainvillea, hibiscus, arboricola trinette and viburnum are also found. Two Carolina holly trees sit along the backf ence. Agardenia bush continues to reappear after being affected each year by cold weathe r. Benches placed around a table with an umbrella provide a place to sit and enjoy the scenery. And seating under the arboratum is the perfect place to relax and read a favorite book. W hen a new plant is being considered for purchase, Morris finds information on the p lant to see if it is suitable for the yard and Hash does the digging and planting a combined effort that has paid off in creating thisc omforting yard.

C M Y K I have received a lot of letters from various people in all walks of life who plain and simple just do notl ike cooking. Cooking for them is on the same par as toilet cleaning. However, they are diligent swish and swipers, incorporatingb athroom cleaning into their regular morning routines. But because other options exist for dinner (going out, fast food, take out, etc.), they arent incor-p orating cooking into their routines. S o why write me to tell me if what they are doing is working for them? Thed eal isnt that it isnt working for them; its just not w orking WELLfor them. They are concerned about the cost and the nutrition aspects of doing this on a regular basis. T he cost is astronomical, both financially and health w ise. Most families do not have the financial means to eat out every night, period,w hether it is healthy or not. Arecent study revealed that f or every dollar spent on food eaten out, only 27 cents worth of food wasa ctually served. What does that tell you about the economics of eating out? Is g oing out to dinner every night a worthy investment o f your familys dollars? Lest you think Im dumping on restaurants, let me assure you I am not. I love going out to dinnera nd around here, we go out once a week as a family or get pizza or take out. My husband and I go out alone (date night regularly, too. Im always on the prowl for a newr estaurant and new dining experience. B ut the day to day of feeding a family is expensive. We just couldnt afford to feed everyone well (as in healthy, freshf ood) if we went out all the time. And while I do love to cook for the most part, there are days when it frankly is a chore. I haveo ther things Id rather be doing and a bunch of people (my family, friends, employees, etc.) who want or need my attention. But I have great news for those who get squeamish at the idea of cooking a big family meal. Most of it can be done on the grill (and these days, outdoor grills with their propane tanks make it seasonless!) then all you really have to add isa big salad and presto, youve got dinner! Here isa recent grilled meal I recently made and it took me all of 15 minutes to prepare. Marinated Grilled Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts Brown Rice (formy peeps, Ive gone Paleo!) Grilled Zucchini and Yellow Squash Big Green Salad Take a big gallon-sized zipper topped plastic bag and fill it with raw chicken (we go with 2 per person around here; I always get some leftovers for lunch the next day). Next, add half a bottle of teriyaki sauce and half a bottle of Italian dressing. Mush the bag around so chicken is coated. Youll want that to marinate for a few hours or overnight even. Cook your brown rice nowit will take the longest to cook. Prepare your zucchini by slicing into rounds; same with the yellow squash. Throw these cut squashes into a big bowl and toss with a little olive oil (you dont want it dripping ino il), salt and pepper and some fresh garlic pressed r ight into the squash (I use two cloves, but there are five of us eating and we all love garlic). You can either saut this in a pan on thes tovetop or saut it on the grill if you have a pan with h oles in it. Its awesome cooked this way and pans with holes in them can bef ound anywhereeven the drugstore. F ire up the barbecue and after it is preheated (make sure its clean, too!), addt he chicken and watch it as you cook it, adjusting the heat as need be. I f youre cooking your veggies on the grill too, y ou will want to start them at the same time. Otherwise, cook them on the stovetop after your chicken is cooked (keep thec hicken warm by wrapping the platter in foil and keeping it in a cold oven just long enough till the squash is cooked). Set your table, get your salad together (I usea lready prepared salad bags from the grocery store, add s ome pine nuts, feta cheese crumbles, tomatoes and vinaigrette, tossed altogether, yum!). Thats it! You can serve y our chicken on individual plates or serve everything family style like we do big platters, you get to pass the food around, join handsa nd say grace and remember to enjoy your family.

We met in our s enior year of college and recently became engaged. Im looking forward to being married and starting a family, but theres one small problem. Im in love with Mikes identical twin brother, Matt. Mike and Matt are identical in appearance, but Matt is funnier, more outgoing and affectionate than my fiance. I didnt know he existed until a year ago because they had a falling out at their high school graduation and didnt reconcile until recently. When I met Matt, I knew right away he was the one for me, but I continued dating Mike because I didnt want to ruin his re-established relationship with his brother. Matt reciprocates my feelings. He has told me hes in love with me and wants to date me. I know I shouldnt have accepted Mikes proposal, but I dont want to hurt him or start another fight between him and his twin, but I also dont want to be married to the wrong man for the rest of my life. Im unsure what to do. The wedding date has been set. Help! In Love With The Double DearIn Love: You should have put the brakes on the relationship with Mike the minute you realized you were attracted to Matt. The engagement should be ended immediately. That you would not only continue to date Mike but also accept his proposal of marriage knowing you were more attracted to his twin was cruel. If Matt starts seeing you after the breakup, it will probably cause a permanent rift between them. It will be interesting to see what happens when you become available because with some people the apple thats just out of reach is the one thats most enticing and you may wind up married to nei-t her brother. DearAbby: My 4-yearold son made a snowman in our front yard and then went inside to take a nap. Our neighbor came over with his son age 16 to talk to my husband. When I brought my 3year-old daughter outside to see the snowman her brother made, I was horrified to see it was now anatomically correct! I asked my husband who did it, and he said it was the neighbors son. My husband thought it was funny and that I was overreacting. I think the behavior was inappropriate, and the fact that my daughter saw it and wondered what was hanging on the snowman was no laughing matter. If the neighbor wanted to make an X-rated snowman, he should have made it in his own front yard. Do you think Im being too sensitive? Fails to See the Humor DearFails to See the Humor: Yes, I do. While I agree the neighbor boys artistic endeavor was in poor taste, it provided an opportunity to answer your daughters question in a matter-of-fact way and explaint here are anatomical differe nces between boys and girls. You could also have explained that private parts are not supposed to be displayed in public, and asked your husband to remove them as you took your little girl back into the house. Seeing the snowman would not traumatize your daughter as much as seeing you shocked and upset.

Woman in love with fiances twin is now in double trouble Dear Abby Associated PressNEWYORK Beware the Liam in Winter. Liam Neesons The Grey topped the weekend box office with $20 million, according to studio estimates Sunday, continuing the actors success as an action star in the winter months. The Alaskan survivalist thriller opened above expectations with a performance on par with previous Neeson thrillers Taken and Unknown. Those films, both January-February releases, opened with $24.7 million and $21.9 million, respectively. But the R-rated The Grey, which has received good reviews, drove home the strong appeal of Neeson, action star. Its an unlikely turn for the 59-year-old Neeson, previously better known for his dramatic performances, like those in Schindlers List and Kinsey Liam is a true movie star, period, said Tom Ortenberg, CEO of Open Road Films. Its the second release for the newly formed distributor, created by theater chains AMC and Regal. My guess is that Liam Neeson in action thrillers would work just about any time of year. January is often a dumping ground for less-stellar releases, a tradition held up by two badly reviewed new wide releases: Man on a Ledge, with Sam Worthington, and One for the Money with Katherine Heigl. One for the Money fared better, earning $11.8 million, while Man on a Ledge opened with $8.3 million. Those were reasonably solid returns, and, in an unusual twist, were both ultimately for Lions Gate Entertainment. Neesons The Grey tops box office with $20M
