C M Y K B y ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING C ommissioner Barbara Stewart first made a motion t o terminate County Administrator Ricky Helms Tuesday, but later withdrewh er motion after determining t hat she did not have the majority of the commissioners behind her. C iting a lack of confidence in Helms evaluations, S tewart made a motion to move forward with Helms termination at the end of theb oard meeting. We cant ignore this. We really have no other choice but to address it. I move thata t our next board meeting, Tuesday Feb. 14, we take a ction regarding the termination of Ricky Helms, Stewart said. Further, this current m otion is to serve as the seven-day notice required in Mr. Helmscontract. Further,t hat we place Mr. Helms on paid administrative leave u ntil we make a decision on Tuesday, Stewart said. Stewart scored Helms at 29 o ut of a possible 100 points o n his nine-month evaluation. Commissioner Ron H andley seconded the motion. Handley scored H elms at 41.7 out of 100 points. By ED BALDRIDGE e d.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING County commissioners voted 5-0o n Tuesday to move forward on constructing a n ew building for the Highlands County Sheriffs Office. Initially, commissioners were told byA dministrative Project Manager Chris Benson that staff needed until Feb. 28 to bring backm ore information about a building choice or new construction. Benson had presented a sketchy spreadsheet in the agenda package that just outlined the purchase prices for the Bank of America building in downtown Sebring and the Restoration Center Church at Sparta Road and State Road 66. What would you like us to do today? asked Commissioner Barbara Stewart. Staff is not requesting any action at this time, Benson said at first. But Sheriff Susan Benton did not like the idea of more waiting, andi nsisted on a solid direction Tuesday. We want a decision today from you whether or not we are considering the church, Bank of America or new construction,B enton stressed to the commission. There is no sense in wasting more staff time.W e have looked at this before. We are spinning our wheels here, Benton said. ell us how you want us to proceed. Heres the other thing I want you to do today. Alot of this depends on funding. Go out to the bond market and get real numbers, Benton said. e need you to budget this $5 million. It has never been budgeted; it is just sitting there on your spreadsheet.

Unfortunately, all too many people today know that, none more than the children involved, some of whom lose one parent or the other forever. This is the story of a father and son, separated because of divorce for 41 years, but who will reunite the weekend of Feb. 17 thanks to two loving wives and the Internet. Michael Meekinsparents went through a difficult, acrimonious divorce when he, an only child, was about 7 years old. His father, Ray Watychowicz (pronounced Wad-o-witch), was a long haul truck driver in New Jersey, only home on weekends. But every weekend Meekins eagerly waited for his dad, watching out the window for the first sight of his truck, knowing he would be allowed to explore and climb everywhere. He even loved to smell the tires, the rubber still friction hot and aromatic. Occasionally taking Meekins on weekend trips, the father and son bonded over their mutual love of big rigs. Then came a Saturday when Meekins sat in front of the window all day long waiting. His father never arrived.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunL AKE PLACID Randy Gilde is a cancer survivor with an important story to share, and he has been selected as the honorary chairperson for the Lake Placid Relay for Life event on March 24-2 5. Gildes family business, D elray Plants, moved to Highlands County from Delray Beach in 1997. The business had been spread across Palm Beach County ina bout seven different locations, and it was time to consolidate. After three years of looking at many Florida counties, the family settledo n Highlands County. Gilde actually moved his family, which includes his wife and four children, to Highlands County in 2001. It was in the spring of 2002 that Gildes journey with cancer began, and it started with a routine visit to his dentist, Dr. Shroeder, for a regular checkup. Randy mentioned a small bump on the inside of his cheek, and the dentist suspected it was not n ormal. Aspecialist in Sebring agreed the bump was abnormal, and when Gilde noticed that the bump had moved, the decision was made to do an immediate biopsy. The results showed av ery aggressive form of NonHodgkins Lymphoma. After a c onfirming diagnosis from doctors at Shands in Gainesville, treatment began immediately at the Palm Beach County CancerI nstitute. Gilde endured several months of chemo treatments. That was followed by six weeks of daily radiation. Ther esult of this aggressive treatment aside from a cure was that Randy was bald when he attended his sons wedding. But he was glad to be there. Gilde was born and raised in a Christian home, but this experience reinforced his f aith. Without his timely dental visit and aggressive treatment, he would only have survived for about a year. There are messages to learn here, according to Gilde. Everyone needsh ealth insurance to prevent financial wipeouts, he said, a dding, Dont be a hypochondriac, but if something about your body doest seem normal, dont ignore it.

More than 1 billion people go hungry every day. More than 6 billion live on the planet. One in six will go hungry tonight. But world hunger is 100 percent preventable, and teens from Faith Lutheran Church are ready to help.

C M Y K CRAs were invented to help blighted areas. The idea is tor eturn tax dollars directly to the blighted neighborhood from w here they were collected, rather than put them into the general coffer. This is an overs implification of the program, but a sum of the intent. A von Park has three CRA zones Main Street, Southside and the Airport. Each zone has its own advisory board. T he city council acts as the CRAitself. It is the agency w ith the power to actually fund grants, projects and events, albeit typically following thew ishes of the advisory boards. An executive director was h ired to coordinate, guide and administer the three zones. The council recently voted t o do away with the directors position. Members indicated they wanted more bang for the buck, as Councilor Parke Sutherland said. Saving thes alary would put more money to work directly, and in any e vent neither the Southside nor the Airport could afford their share of the cost. T he need for an administrator, however, was recognized, w hich is why the council suggests the Chamber take over that responsibility, in essence taking the place of the director. Highlands County has seen m any excellent unions between public and private, but in this c ase we worry about the impact on the Chamber. Taking on responsibility for h andling public funds and overseeing their use means the C hamber would come under Sunshine Laws. Meetings would have to be noticed ando pen to the public. Citizens could make public information requests. Chamber books would come under public r eview. Aslightly lesser concern, because it should only be temporary, is the learning curve the Chambers own director wouldh ave to master. The laws concerning CRAs, public dollars and open government are many and complicated a challenge for even an experienced individual. Fora brand new director, however, with an already tremendous a mount to learn, the situation will be overwhelming, certainly at first. Were not passinga ny kind of judgment here. Think instead of a college stud ent having to take advanced physics and trigonometry with a background of ninth-grade science and Algebra I. Add to that the fact that each C RAzone has its own unique needs and resources (or lack of t hem) and the difficulty is tripled. Finally, we worry that the C hamber will be diverted from its core mission, which is servi ng Avon Parks businesses. We agree with the city council that the Chamber shouldb ecome more involved in triggering growth and expanding opportunities. But, we feel this should be a carefully develo ped relationship, with public and private clearly defined and k ept separate. We worry that rushing into this, without thinking itt hrough, will create headaches for everyone, and actually hinder the progress we all want.

The line is perfect for the current GOPpres-i dential campaign, where the candidatesseemingly serious pronouncements leave joke writers with little to add. T he last time national politics provided such comedic lowlights was in2 008, when Tina Fey did her first Sarah Palin sendup on Saturday Night Livew ith a script that was remarkably close to Palins a ctual remarks, including, I can see Russia from my house. Who could maket hat up? Heres a Top 10 list of w hats strange but true in the campaign so far: No. 10 Newt Gingrichs proposal to have school kids work as jani-t ors, starting at age 9. He would fire the unionized j anitors and replace them with low-paid students, working under a masterj anitor. Its hard to imagine a plan that sweepingly o ffends more people educators, students, parents and janitors, to name a few. N o. 9 Rick Santorums assertion that states should have the right to ban contraception, despite the 1965 SupremeC ourt ruling to the contrary. Is Santorum aware that the overwhelming majority of Americans uses contraceptives, and feww ould be willing to move to another state to preserve t hat right? No. 8 Mitt Romneys d eclaration that hes not focusing on helping the very poor. At least he was being honest. If one of the wealthiest men ever tos eek the presidency cant get votes from poor people, its probably a waste of time to help them. No. 7 Ron Pauls sugg estion that the federal tax rate for everyone should be zero. Thats the type of nonsense that really fires up Pauls determined followers, and it would probably make him a viable candidate if such fantasies were even remotely feasible. No. 6 Paul also advocates abolishing the minimum wage, claiming that s uch regulations make it more difficult for poor people to get jobs. If nothing else,P auls plan would make it easier for kids to earn a dollar an hour as janitors in a Gingricha dministration.

Surely they jest Candid Thoughts Peter Funt We need less bureaucracy, not moreEditor: I would like to respond to the letter Proposals Prove They Are Out of Touch by Valari Fauntleroy. I do not know what Middle Class you are part of, but the Middle Class that I belong to needs jobs and lower taxes. The GOPcandidatessolutions are to not have the government provide jobs, but reduce the tax burden on small business. Small businesses in turn will be willing to provide jobs. The uncertainty provided by this administration is preventing businesses from hiring. Eliminate the regulations and change the tax structure on corporations to bring our manufacturing home to the United States. At one time we lead the world in manufacturing. We are a society of capitalism. Lets let capitalism work. The reason everyone wants to come to this country is our freedoms. Individual success in this country is based on each individuals initiative and work ethic, not on government programs, handouts and promises. My health insurance costs have skyrocketed since the passing of the national health care bill, and I do not think we have seen the end of this yet. College tuition is still rising since the current administration has been in office and it looks like it will continue to rise. We need less bureaucracy not more. Immigration is like the sinking boat, what do you do first? Bail water or stop the leak. The first thing we need is to secure the borders, then we need to enforce the laws that we currently have. Remember the quote from Dennis Prager, The bigger the government the small the citizen. Olivia Scott Avon ParkKeep Parkway traffic off College DriveEditor: Recently, my wife and I have dropped our Florida residency to become Hoosiers again, not necessarily because of better government in Indiana. Although both states have major problems, Floridas government appears to have a stronger hold on absurdity. For example, the U.S. and Florida have spent millions upon millions of dollars to straighten a river to the Everglades which was in process of being drained to create more sugar cane farms and now thats being reversed with a cost of additional hundreds of millions of tax dollar money. The state has also managed to strip its public teachers of both their dignity and their security with its new approaches to education (being copied in Indiana, by the way). Florida seems to be a prime spot for election nightmares, a la 2000. Who knows what 2012 holds? Afew days ago, a news story indicated that there was some disagreement about the original plans for the Sebring Parkway design. Mr. Handley suggested that the original plan was to finish by using College Drive to access U.S .27. Now the County Commission suggests the best plan would be to use College Drive. Where are those original plans and what do they really say? Has anyone bothered to read the Eucalyptus Access Study or the U.S. 27 Corridor Study? Obviously, President Stephens is familiar with it. The original plan would take the Parkway to Avon Park and then to U.S. 27. As a former instructor at the college (now a university shudder to think of the noise and confusion a reconstructed College Drive would create and, even moreso, the dangers to the student body and faculty. I never heard a single student complain about any difficulty reaching the campus. That will change in a hurry when you have hundreds of trucks every day on the Drive along with a lot of dangerous drivers of all ages. Dr. Stephens made it clear that safety is the main consideration in this matter. Thats a sane analysis. Most every other idea Ive heard in this discussion takes us back to the absurd. Is it any wonder that the voting public has grown tired of such nonsense? Van Young SebringCountry Fair was awesomeEditor: To the Town of Lake Placid: As a 14 year resident of this beautiful city, I would like to thank all those involved with the Lake Placid Country Fair. This was the best year ever! My family and I spent time on both days taking in the sights, sounds and of course, the great food. The Art Fair was, as always, impressive. The talent in our area is like none other. The city workers do such a beautiful job taking care of our newly renovated circle and as a performer myself on Saturday, the Gazebo was the perfect setting for the entertainment. The talent lineup was very enjoyable to listen to as I strolled through the beautiful grounds. Thanks again for one of the best weekends I have had in our lovely area.

C M Y K Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Vice President Joe Biden made a pitch Monday for the Obama administrations proposals to make college affordable, including punishing schools that fail to keep their costs down, but he said that probably wont apply to lowtuition states such as Florida. Florida State University President Eric Barron, who met privately with Biden before he addressed students and faculty at the school, said he was encouraged by the vice presidents comments. I wanted him to understand how inexpensive Florida really is because we have a substantial amount of money that goes into student scholarships, and tuition has been kept low, Barron said. Visits to Tallahassee by Education Secretary Arne Duncan two weeks ago and now Biden came on the heels of President Barack Obama announcing proposals to make college more affordable. They include withholding federal aid from schools that dont keep net tuition down and provide good value. ere not looking to cut tuition, Biden said in response to a students question. Were looking forward to make sure in the next 20 years it doesnt increase 300 percent again. Biden said thats how much tuition has gone up over the past two decades nationally, but noted Floridas rates started low and have gone up much less than in most states. So its unlikely any of this would affect FSU, he said. For real, not just saying that. Thats reality Biden said the administration would use a sliding scale to determine which schools would receive funding from a pot of direct aid that pays for such things as student loans and work study. He said the president wants to increase that fund from $2 billion to $10 billion. Barron said the sliding scale should be based on how much tuition increases in terms of dollars, not percentage. He said a 4 percent increase for Pennsylvanias state university system would be the dollar equivalent of a 15 percent increase in Florida. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, February 8, 2012Page 5A DAILY COMMERCIAL; 3.639"; 1"; Black; cornerstone hospice; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 4 4 2 2 0 0 COCHRAN BROTHERS ROOFING; 5.542"; 3"; Black; feb. ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 4 4 2 2 9 9 MARTIAL ARTS (pp top rhp ; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 4 4 3 3 8 8 drawings of local historic s ites include several existing churches and a few buildings no longer stand-i ng.

OB ITUARIES M oore COMMUNITYBRIEFS By JULIE WATSON Associated PressS AN DIEGO Afederal judge for the first time in U.S. history heard argumentsM onday in a case that could determine whether animals e njoy the same constitutional protection against slavery as human beings. U .S. District Judge Jeffrey Miller called the hearing in San Diego after Sea World asked the court to dismiss a lawsuit filed by People fort he Ethical Treatment of Animals that names five orcas as plaintiffs in the case. PETAclaims the captured killer whales are treated likes laves for being forced to live in tanks and perform d aily at its parks in San Diego and Orlando. This case is on the next frontier of civil rights, said PETAs attorney Jeffrey Kerr, representing the five orcas. Sea Worlds attorney T heodore Shaw called the lawsuit a waste of the courts time and resources. He said it defies common sense and goes against 125 years ofc ase law applied to the Constitutions 13th amendment that prohibits slavery between humans. ith all due respect, the court does not have the authority to even consider this question, Shaw said, a dding later: Neither orcas nor any other animal were i ncluded in the We the people... when the Constitution was adopted. M iller listened to both sides for an hour before a nnouncing that he would take the case under advisement and issue his ruling at a l ater date. The judge raised doubts a court can allow animals to be plaintiffs in a lawsuit, and he questioned how far the implications of af avorable ruling could reach, pointing out the militarys use of dolphins and scientistsexperiments on whales in the wild. K err acknowledged PETA faces an uphill battle but he s aid he was hopeful after Mondays hearing. This is an historic day Kerr said. For the first time in our nations history, a federal court heard arguments as to whether living, breathing,f eeling beings have rights and can be enslaved simply because they happen to not have been born human. By any definition these orcash ave been enslaved here. The issue is not about whether the animals have been subjected to abuse, the defense said. If the court were to grant orcas constitutional rights, Shaw warned the ruling would have prof ound implications that could i mpact everything from the way the U.S. government uses dogs to sniff out bombs and drugs to how zoos and a quariums operate. ere talking about hell u nleashed, he said. PETAsaid a ruling in its f avor would only help to protect the orcas in the entertainment industry and other cases i nvolving animals would have to be decided on their own merits. Kerr said Sea World employees are in violation of the 13th amendment because t heir conduct is enslaving an intelligent, highly social species that suffers from its c onfinements in ways similar to what humans would expe-r ience. Brushing animals off as property is the same argum ent that was used against African-Americans and women before their constitutional rights were protected, PETAsays. Shaw pointed out that argument does not translate because both women and African-Americans are peop le for which the Constitution was written to protect. Miller did not specify when he would issue his ruling. MCT A lawsuite filed by PETA claims that killer whales are treated like slaves at theme parks like Sea World. Slavery protections for animals?

C M Y K only said, your Dads not coming, and with that Watychowicz vanished fromM eekins life. But, of course, not from his heart.Living without his fatherNo one ever explained why he stopped coming, Meekins said in a recenti nterview. Every time I brought the subject up my mother threw it off. She told me my dad didnt want a relationship with me. His mother remarried and h is step-father adopted him, changing his last name to M eekins. The family moved around a lot. I really dont remember m uch, Meekins said, except that when his four step-brothe rs visited their father on the weekend he couldnt understand how they could see their dad and he couldnt see his. Y ears passed. When Meekins was 17 a family f riend brought Watychowicz and Meekins together for an hour-long visit. When hism other discovered about the meeting there was a terrible f ight. Then Meekinsfamily moved to Florida, father and son lost touch again, withoute ver having had an opportunity to ask questions or get answers. Q uestions, however, were always on Meekinsmind. D id his father really not care about him? Why didnt he try to get in touch if he did care? Meekins became guarded. Commitment became diffi-c ult. But, committed he became, eventually marrying and fathering a child. His wife, Susan, and daughter, Lauren, became the center of his life, and he became a long hault rucker like his dad. More years passed, and so d id some of the pain, but the questions constantly nagged. Then his mother died. It hit him hard. He felt very alone. Susan grew increasingly wor-r ied, her own heart breaking at his suffering. For some time it had been on her mind to track down Meekinsfather, but shea lways put it off, never sure if it was a good idea or not. When she talked about it with Meekins, he too was ambivalent. He worried that his mother might have been right, that his father did not want to see him, or that his father would think he was just looking for a hand out. Susan tried to reassure him. Remember there are always three sides to everything, she said she told him. Theres your side, their side and the truth. How can you decide not to contact your father until you know the truth? She began to search, using the Internet. Im a hound dog, she said. When I want something, I get it.The searchSusan took Newark, N.J. as her starting point because it was in the geographical area where Meekins had grown up. She thought it likely Watychowicz would have stayed near family. A search of property appraiser files yielded nothing, but she did finally come across a marriage certificate betweena Ray Watychowicz and a Jennifer MacKenzie. There are so many things people overlook (when searching online), Susan said. Check on all names on documents; if its not the person youre looking for, it c ould be a relative. She Googled MacKenzies n ame. There are a ton of Jennifer MacKenzies worldwide, Susan said, and one lived in Middlesex, N.J. Shew ent to the Web site anywho.com and found a phone n umber and address. It (the search three hours, Susan said. Is till cant believe it. I pulled up the house on Google and l ooked right at the car theyre driving. She struggled with her k nowledge, not telling her husband, unsure of whether or not to get in touch. She c alled once, but when a man answered, she lost her c ourage and hung up without saying anything. Thats when she turned to Facebook.ContactOne afternoon, sitting in h er living room, Jennifer MacKenzie turned on her c omputer and saw an instant message waiting for her onF acebook. Does your husband have a son named Michael? The message asked. MacKenzie was surprised, b ut not in the least shocked. In fact, she had taken some steps of her own over the years to try to find Meekins, but never gotten everywhere. Oh my God, he talks a bout Mikey all the time, MacKenzie messaged back. Ray was upstairs taking a nap, she said. I didnt knowe xactly how he would react. When he came downstairs I said, Your sons wife just contacted me,and his face just lit up. W atychowicz, however, had his own doubts. What if there was bad blood? What if his son hated him? A t MacKenzies urging he called Susan that night, and talked for hours. Meekins was on the road. Watychowicz, reassured, d ecided to call Meekins on his birthday. Susan said nothing to her husband in advance. It was a shock (when he c alled), Meekins said. It knocked my socks off. He still sounded like I remembered, and he sounded really happyF illing in the blanksPhone calls and emails foll owed. Meekins discovered his f ather had tried to find him, after discovering the house empty when he went to visits hortly after the divorce. Watychowicz tried to find M eekins, but in the days before the Internet, it proved impossible. The name change to Meekins made everything much harder. Hef inally gave up, but guilt haunted him. N ow Watychowicz knows that he is a grandfather, and where his son lives. M eekins knows his father never stopped loving him, a nd to his great surprise spent 27 years with the Bergen County SheriffsO ffice as a lieutenant in the motorcycle division. They planned to meet, then h ad to postpone due to family emergencies, but the p hone calls and email messaging grew more frequent. Everyone is looking forward to finally getting together. Ive noticed a huge c hange in Mike, said Susan. When he gets down now he calls his Dad. Were finishing something that should have been finished a long time ago. Its an answered prayer Alot of men out there love their children, said M acKenzie, but they feel guilty, or afraid of grudges and do nothing. Get on Facebook, or just call up your kid.

I think that the evaluation process we just went through was flawed fromt he beginning, Elwell explained. At the end of a year, w ith no feedback throughout the year, I dont see how you move to terminates omeone as opposed to counsel them and work w ith them. I think that when you work with a manager or an administratorw ho has been in place as long as Mr. Helms has b een, I dont see termination is the answer. I say it is a lot smarter to say, here are the goalsf or year number two, said Elwell I think we send a bad message to the people of HighlandsC ounty and the team members that work for H ighlands County where the final numbers on an evaluation has a 59 point s pread from low to high and we decide we are going to go ahead and get rid of him, Elwell said. Elwell ranked Helms at 6 8.33 out of 100 points. Commissioner Greg Harris, who gave Helms his highest ranking with 85 points, agreed with Elwell. I could not have said that better, Harris said a bout Elwells comments. The mans not perfect. H owever, you know what you get with Mr. Helms. You get a very steady employee and a very steady person, Elwell said. He is not going to burn the county, Elwell added. I feel we are setting a horrible example as managersw hen you do this. There will be no public comment, said Chairman Jack Richie. I met with Mr. Helms a bout his evaluation and Mr. Helms said, How can I improve? but at the time I said I think you should retire,basically, not int hose exact words, Richie said. Richie ranked Helms at 2 9 out of 100 points. Further discussions with Mr. Helms impressed me.H e has shown me a character that I have not seen in t he last year, Richie said. I felt that he did not have sufficient training inm anagement because he was not showing it. H owever, he has shown, in a very short time, his determination to excel and recoverf rom last year Richie said. S tewart recanted on her motion, stating that she made it becauseh is evaluation had to be discussed in public. This had to be brought up. I dont know how you others operate, I assume y ou dont communicate with each other. The only thing I could base my motion on was that three commissioners, based onr eading the evaluations, showed that they did not have confidence in the administrator, Stewart said. It has been addressed and it is very clear that the m ajority of the commission does support that Mr.H elms does continue. Therefore, I withdraw my motion and will continue to support Mr. Helms with the rest of the commissionersS tewart said. Handley withdrew his second as well.

Other than a Devonta Chisolm leaner and a Nick Swain spinning lay-up, the Dragons would be held blank in the opening eight minutes, while Bulldog Ricky Cobb scored six himself in staking Frostproof to an 11-4 lead. The second quarter showed much the same, with the dogs forcing numerous Lake Placid turnovers which, while not exactly burning up the nets themselves, was enough to go into the half with a 21-9 lead. Frostproof had marked the lone win during the regular season for the Dragons, topping them by two points on Tuesday, Jan. 24. And it looked like the confidence from that win started to come back at the onset of the second half. Swain scored inside and hit two free throws to make it a 21-13 game. And after a Cobb score inside, Mary Hickey hit a Streaks whipped by Winter Haven S pecial to the News-SunLAKEWALES The remarkable run continued Saturday, as the Lady Eagles of Walker Memorial kept their perfect season intacta nd claimed the District 7-2A tournament title in the process, with a 55-39 win over All SaintsAcademy. T hough it looked like the Eagles would be dealt a harsh b low early on, as leading s corer Kristelle Lagabon came down on a Lady Saints foot and twisted her ankle during the teams first offensive possession. Replaced by seventh-grader, Keziah Maranan, Walkers full-court press didnt miss a beat, holding All Saintsto just six points in the opening period. Lagabon came back in near the end of the quarter and scored four quick points to help build the 15-6 lead. But the Saints picked it up in the second period, getting seven points from sophomore Kaylaina Young and four from freshman Melanie Rex to close the gap by halftime. The Lady Eagles, however, ramped up the press again in the third, leading to steals and scores, as well as mounting fouls and frustration for the Saints. Nearing the end of the frame, Maranan came up with a steal and took it toward the basket and All Saints leading scorer Young, SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, February 8, 2012 Courtesy photo The Lady Eagles celebrate after Walker Memorials Saturday win claimed the District 7-2A title and sends them into the state playoffs.

B y DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Solid pitching, a strong defense and timely hitting are the key ingredients to baseball success. In bits and pieces, all aspects are coming into play for the SouthF lorida Panthers. A fter suffering a 9-4 loss at Webber Monday, SFCC brought out their hitting shoes Wednesday and pounded their way to a 19-3 win. e swung the bats really w ell and banged out 17 hits, head coach Rick Hitt said of the shellacking. We hit .600 with runners in scoring position and had an 11-run inning. From there, the schedule got much tougher, with state-ranked Broward in town Friday in what turnedo ut to be a pitchers d uel that the Panthers, unfortunately, came on the wrong end of a 1-0 score. e pitched outstanding against a plus lineup, Hitt said. We had our shots, offensively, but needed to do j ust a bit more. Saturday brought Santa Fe in for a pair of seven-inning games against the ninthranked team in the nation. Undaunted by the lofty acclaim, the Panthers took Santa Fe down in the first game, 3-1. But the Saints got their revenge, scoring early ando ften and riding the stalwart p itching of lefty starter Ryan Yarbrough, who needed just 50 pitches to get through his five innings of work, to a 123 win. Theyre a very talented team and we played well in the first game, Hitt said. e pitched, played defense and had timely hitting. We came right at them and thats what I was looking for from our guys. Game two, not so much. Now 2-6 overall, with a number of close contests under their belts, South Florida is on the road all week, facing Indian River in Fort Pierce Monday, at Daytona State Wednesday, in O cala to play Central Florida Friday and another doubleheader with Santa Fe in Gainesville Saturday.

So dominant was the s weep, in fact, that only six games total were lost a mong all the matches. Kaley Walter and Nisha Patel went for 6-0, 6-0 wins at Nos 1 and 2 singles, respectively, before Joy Donglasan went 6-0, 6-3 over Taylor Lockwood at No. 3 singles. Kelly Broen flipped that script at No. 4, going 6-3, 6-0 over Courtney Ulrich, and Morgan Heston got b ack to the goose eggs in shutting out Arianna Crose, 6-0, 6-0, at No. 5.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Still trying to find their niche after four straight losses to start the season, the Lady Panthers of South Florida werent helped by being short-handed Saturday most notably with an ankle sprain to shortstop Lexi Belardi. But in a duel of the Panthers against Palm Beach State, SFCC got into the win column in thrilling fashion. Falling behind early, the orange-and-black-clad home team got a big lift from a three-run homer to center from Mackenzie Hunt to cut into the lead. Later, a solo bomb from catcher Amanda Labrador evened things up, where they stayed going into the home Panthers last at bat. Then, with pinch-runner Samantha Peach at second, Kayla Dennison came through with a single to left to bring Peach in with the game winner. Things werent quite as dramatic, nor uplifting in the afternoon nightcap, with Palm Beach getting atonement with an 11-0 win. South Florida is back in action Thursday, with a home twin-bill against Broward College before hitting the road for a Saturday contest against the Lady Titans at Brevard in Melbourne.

T he gesture was the talk of Twitter for hours Sunday night and still was to some extent Monday. Still, the digital video recorder makerT ivo said there wasnt an appreciable bump in viewers who played back the moment where M.I.A. extended her middle finger during Madonnas performance of Give Me All Your Luvin on Sunday nights show. T ivo has 2 million customers in the U.S. S pokeswoman Tara Maitra said the company would check to see if more people play back the moment. The NFLand NBC both a pologized for the incident. The NFLblamed NBC for being not quick enough to censor the gesture, while NBC noted that the NFLisr esponsible for the content of the halftime show on TVs most-watched annual show. This was no wardrobe malfunction, nothing like thatg limpse of Janet Jacksons nipple eight years ago that caused an uproar and government scrutiny. Instead, in front of some 110 million viewers on NBC andu ncounted others online, she flipped the bird and appeared t o sing, I dont give a (expletive though it was hard to hear her clearly. The obscene gesture in t he performance was completely inappropriate, very d isappointing and we apologize to our fans, said Brian McCarthy, spokesman for the NFL, which produced the show. He said M.I.A. had notd one anything similar during rehearsals and the league had n o reason to believe she would pull something like t hat during the actual show. The screen briefly went blurred after M.I.A.s gesture in what was a late attempt by less than a second toc ut out the camera shot. The NFLhired the talent and produced the halftime show, NBC spokesman Christopher McCloskey said. Our system was late to obscure the inappropriate gesture and we apologize to our viewers. Back in M.I.A.s native B ritain, the London Times noted Monday that while all eyes may have been on Madonna at halftime, it was the extended middle finger of the British hip-hop starM .I.A. that caused the most controversy. T he Guardian wondered whether anyone would really b e outraged. oud be forgiven for not having a coronary over the fact M.I.A. gave Super Bowl viewers the finger during herh alftime guest spot with Madonna, the newspaper wrote in its music blog. For most fans, it was probably more shocking to see M.I.A.p erforming a rehearsed dance routine than flipping the bird. Indeed, M.I.A. is provocative and an artist takinga dvantage of all those TV viewers might not be all that surprising. Still, host Gretchen Carlson on Fox News Channels Fox & Friends urged M.I.A. to geta life and culture vulture Perez Hilton tweeted: Think s hell ever be invited on live TVagain?

Kiwanis Club of Sebring launches Read Around the World project GET YOUR LOCAL NEWS STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE S pecial to the News-SunSEBRING Anne Bouhebent, executive director for the Early LearningC oalition of Floridas Heartland, Inc., gave the K iwanis Club of Sebring an insight into the High/Scope Perry Preschool Study. Thes tudy has identified both the short and long-term effects of a high-quality preschool education program for young children living in poverty. T he experiment identified a sample of 123 low-income children who were assessed to be at high risk of school failure. There were 58 chil-d ren randomly assigned to a program group that received high-quality preschool program at ages 3 and 4, and 65 to another group thatr eceived no preschool program. The major conclusion o f the mid-life phase is that high-quality preschool pro-g rams for young children living in poverty contribute to their intellectual and social development in childhood and their school success, eco-n omic performance and reduced commission of crime in adulthood. The study found that with a high quality pre-school expe-r ience there were fewer arrests by age 40: 36 percent versus 55 percent, 65 percent graduated from high school vs. 45 percent, and 60 percent earned $20,000 or more a nnually versus 40 percent. There are 47 child care c enters in Highlands County that are contract readiness and 30 centers for volunteer kindergartens.

In the first national estimate of its kind, a report from government researchers says moret han 1 in 5 high school students and middle schoolers ride in cars while others are smoking. This kind of secondhand smoke exposure has been linked with breathing problems anda llergy symptoms, and more restrictions are needed to prevent it, the report says. With widespread crackdowns on smoking in public, private places including homes and cars are where people encounter secondhand smoke these days. Anti-smoking advocates have zeroed in on cars because of research showing theyre potentially more dangerous than smoke-filled bars and other less confined areas. T he research, from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was releasedo nline Monday in Pediatrics. The study is based on national surveys done at public and private high schools and middle schools. Students were asked how often they rode in cars while someone was smoking with-i n the past week. The most common answer was one or two days. The smoker could mean other kids or parents; the study didnt specify. ACDC fact sheet suggests even small amounts of secondhand smoke can be risky. There is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke, the CDC says. Overall, 22 percent of teens and pre-teens were exposed to secondhand smoke in cars in 2009, the latest data available. That figure declined gradually during the decade, from 40 percent in 2000, the study found. But still, the numbers of kids still facing the risks is certainly problematic, said CDC researcher Brian King, the studys lead author. CDC: Too many kids breathe others smoke in cars

C M Y K SANGER, Texas (AP Country singer Randy Travish as apologized after being arrested on a charge of public intoxication outside a North Texas church. Denton County sheriffs spokesman Tom Reedy says police in the town of Sanger arrested Travis early Monday after spotting a vehicle parked in front of a church and finding an open bottle of wine and Travis smelling of alcohol. Reedy says Travis, whose hits include Forever and Ever, Amen, was brought to the Denton County jail about 1:30 a.m. and released six hours later. The singer, who lives in the small town of Tioga near Sanger, apologized in a statement to The Associated Press for what resulted following an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl. Travis, who launches a c oncert tour Friday, said in the statement hes committed to being responsible anda ccountable. By LEANNE ITALIE Associated PressN EWYORK You thought you found your one true love online, but now youve been dumped by text or defriended on Facebookw ithout a peep of explanation. Hours of bad TVin your bathrobe havent helped. Your friends are tired of your whining. F orget a pampering makeover to help heal your broken heart this Valentines Day. Go for a digital breakover instead, using ag rowing number of tech tools to save you from yourself or to sob on a safes houlder in the ether. Online dating sites and apps for hooking up on theg o are abundant. Only one of the Apple app stores recent t op 12 downloads for the iPhone was about something other than romantic love, butb reakup tech hasnt kept pace. M elissa McGlone, 46, in Alexandria, Va., turned to The Ex-App after a threeyear relationship ended recently with an unceremoni-o us text. After a weak moment or three of electroni cally stalking her dumper, she used the text, call and email blocker to hold hisd igits at bay until she could resist temptation on her own. I no longer humiliate myself by trying to contact him, said McGlone, a d ivorced mother who was 18 years out of the dating scene when the two first met. The free app took off last March with about 3,000d ownloads in the first nine months. Unlike other blocking tools, The Ex-App also tracks the number of consecutive days spent NOTtryingt o ferret out a former love. In New York, 28-year-old A manda Green relied on the well-established Dear OldL ove Tumblr blog after she was dumped on Independence Day 2009 a y ear into a relationship. The site for the lovelorn d escribes itself as an anonymous safe haven for short notes to people weve loved (or at least liked or unrequited. Aselectiono f notes from the site was later turned into a book. Its a refuge for those of us who know our friends are getting tired of listening tou s, or those of us who dont have a confidante at all, s aid Green, who posted there regularly for a few months. s also a reminder of how u niversal these feelings are. For Green, it was a place to let go. Hard. When I went to your apartment to get my things, Id ipped your toothbrush in the toilet. I wasnt gonna kiss you ever again anyway she poured out in one of the messages she left there. Its a, perhaps unfortunately, true story, Green s aid, but Im in a much better place now. I think I dealw ith this stuff better now. Id like to think Dear Old Love has something to do w ith that. Theres also C heaterVille.com, a site full of alleged cheaters complete with mugshot-like photos and sometimes lengthy explanations of love decep-t ions. While the culprits are identified by name and town, t he posters are anonymous. And NeverLikedItAnyway.com,w here dumpees sell off their engagement rings, wedding g owns and other gifts from exes. Arecent bargain of the week featured an anonymous t eachers lynx fur jacket with a real-world price of $12,000 but a breakup asking price of $7,995. Transactions are private viad irect message through the site. The latest entrant is WotWentWrong, brand new for dumpees in search off eedback from their formers after a first date failed to p roduce a follow-up call or budding love died on thev ine without explanation. Registered users fill out detailed questionnaires cove ring what information theyre after (was it my hair, t he way I dressed?) and can customize a template letter to be sent through the site to an ex. The ex can respond with as much detail as he ors he desires through the site, without contacting the sender directly. Many new relationships end without an actual end-i ng, be it in person or via technology, said the site owner, Audrey Melnik, who came up with the idea after a first date she thought wentw ell vanished without a word. There are times when you can be left wondering why things ended if you did-n t ask at the moment that you broke up. We provide a way to give closure, shes aid. The site received 28,000 unique visitors less than twow eeks after it was launched Jan. 24, Melnik said. M elnik and Andrea Miller, who runs the dating portal YourTango.com, are certain-l y tech savvy, but theyre both old fashioned when it c omes to breaking up. s totally inappropriate to break up digitally, Miller said. You should have a conversation. Miller has declared Feb. 13 break up with your ex day for the second year, offering a range of breakover tips and advice on her site. S he asked 1,300 of her readers for the biggest issu es after a breakup and 71 per-c ent said they think about their exes too much, while5 7 percent not currently in a relationship said thinking about their formers prevents them from finding new love. Of those who are married, 36 percent said their attachment to an ex interferes with t heir current relationship. People are connected to t heir exes in a profound way and many used technology to find love in the first place, Miller said, yet theres thisp aucity of technology to help you after a breakup.W ere saying get on with it, i n our digital lives as well as ours hearts.

C M Y K C lutter hurts our marriages. It affects the way we feel about ourselves and makes us sluggish. When our homes are filled withc lutter, we just want to flee. We do everything in our power to not have to look at it. Here are some things we d o. We hide out in the bed, so we dont have to see it. We leave the house for the day and dont come home until late. We volunteer fort hings to keep us out of the house. Abusy person does not have time to clean andd eclutter. This gives you an excuse. When you walk in the door after a day of run-n ing around, facing the clutter, stops you dead in your t racks. Since you dont know where to start, you do nothing. C lutter sucks the energy right out of you. This is why I have urged you to shine your sink. Just seeing one small area that is clean and clutter free, gives you the energy to do more; I thinky ou are beginning to believe me. The same way that clutt er tends to grow in our hotspots, clutter free areas are contagious too. Withj ust a small area clean, you will begin to clean and clear t he areas surrounding your bright spot. Keep your counters clear a s you cook. Dont let things pile up. Clean up after each dish prepared. Fill your sink with fresh hot soapy water each time itg ets dirty and cold. Put out clean dish towels and dish cloths. When you get an area clean, declare it a clutter free zone. Use your hots pot preventions twice daily to keep them clear of clutt er. Our husbands and child ren are pushed away by this clutter. We allow it to alienate our family from us. Husbands hide in the bedroom, the family room inf ront of the TV, tinkering in the garage or they dont come home at all. These are places of refuge. As a result of husbands protectingt hemselves from the clutter, you feel abandoned. Lines of communication become broken because clutter can push people apart. You all know about this. Look at what happens with your children. With clutter everywhere, they have a problem sitting still. Yes, I sincerely believe that clutter affects our ability to focus. This is a downward spiral. Clutter keeps us from focusing. This contributes to more clutter and chaos. We get depressed and want to hide. Things get worse and we become hermits. Our children are seeing our lack of structure and discipline. They do not want to mind us, when we tell them to clean their room. Whys hould they? Our room is not clean. Y ou will find that when you set this example, even just in one area, you willb egin to see a change in your children. They will be m ore willing to help, when they see you doing something. The children want attention. When our homes are cluttered; we becomeo verwhelmed, so we do nothing. Our focus is on the c lutter and not on our children. Can you see this? Our poor children just want us ton otice them for a while. This is when they make an e ven bigger mess. Any attention, even negative attention, is better than no a ttention. You yell at them and get upset with yourself because of your mean voice and then you beat yourself up. This vicious cycle hasg ot to stop. You are not a bad Mom, a bad wife or a bad person. The only problem is that we have allowed the enemyC lutter to invade our territory. It is time to take back o ur homes and find the peace that I know is there.Y ou will know this too, when you clean one small area of the clutter and keep it clear. This victory will be yours and your whole fami-l y will celebrate. Set your timer for 15 minutes and practice our new habit for February. Just grab a trash bag and startt ossing; it is time to kick that clutter right out of our lives.

I found out after that I have genital warts. My yearlye xams never showed any problems before, so I know I got them from Brady. Im getting treatment now, but Ill be contagious for the rest of my life. I have been unable to tell Brady about this because he wont respond to my attempts to contact him. Im now trying to decide if I should tell his fiancee. I know he wants children, and this disease can have some serious repercussions if she gets pregnant. Do I leave this woman in the dark, or should I give her the medical information she and her doctors should have? Needs To Do the Right Thing in New York DearNeeds To Do the Right Thing : Five weeks into a relationship is a whirlwind courtship, unless Brady was cheating on you with his fiancee before your breakup. If thats the case, she may be the person who infected Brady. Since he wont respond to you, send him a registered letter informing him of your diagnosis, and any other information about genital warts you feel is relevant. If youre worried that the fiancee is in the dark about this, send her a copy also by registered mail. That way youll know it was received. DearAbby: I am the product of an interracial relationship from the late s. My maternal grandmother wanted nothing to do with me and made my teenage mother give me up for adoption. Before my biological mother passed awaya few years ago, her dying wish was for my grandmother and me to form a relationship. She didnt want her mother to be alone in her final years. I made an attempt to forge a relationship with my grandmother only to be told that she didnt like me because of the color of my skin. Since then, I have been having bad dreams of my mother being disappointed in me because I didnt fulfill her wish. Please advise me on what I should do. Unaccepted in North Carolina DearUnaccepted: It takes two people to form a relationship. By reaching out to your grandmother, you did the best you could to fulfill your mothers wish which, from your description of your grandmother, was an unfair burden to try to place on you. Theres no reason for you to court another round of rejection and, for y our sake, Im advising you not to. It may help to write a letter to your mother, explaining to her what happened when you reached out to your grandmother and how it felt, then read it at her grave. But please, stop blaming yourself for your grandmothers inability to love. DearAbby: While going through pictures on my girlfriends computer, I discovered that she had posed nude for a drawing by her artist daughter. For some reason, I am really bothered by her posing nude and doing it for her daughter. How can I bring this up, which will let her know that I was snooping on her computer? Saw Way Too Much in Kentucky DearSaw Way Too Much: Why would you be really bothered by a mother posing nude for her daughter who is an artist? Most mothers and daughters have seen each other ins tates of undress and there is nothing shocking about it. My advice is to first figure out what you think is wrong with it, then admitt hat you snooped so you can talk it out. After that, she can determine if she wants to continue being involved with a man who is as nosy and prudish as you appear to be. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
