An artist reborn ByARTLEFKOWITZ Special to the News-SunSEBRING It doesnt take long to realize Peter P owell Robertspersonality matches his room at the Sunny Hills Assisted LivingF acility. Both are bright, warm and inviting. But this was not always the case. L ast year, he lost his wife (of 45 years lifelong passion for painting. H e found himself penniless, d epressed, ailing and in a ssisted living. Recently, Fred Leavitt, president of the Heartland Cultural Alliance (HCAb rought his therapy dog, S heba, to Sunny Hills to help cheer up the residents. The Activities Director of the facility, Jeanne Freimuth,k new Leavitt as an artist and asked him to visit Roberts and look at his paintings. R oberts, age 86, was delighted to meet Fred and his dog, and Leavitt was just as delighted to see the quali-t y of the art work crowding the small room. Original oil paintings hung on the walls, some were stacked along thef loor, and others were stuck between pieces of furniture. Leavitt recognized the importance of this body ofF lorida art hidden away and in jeopardy of being lost forever. He urged Roberts to exhibit some of his paintingsa t the HCAGallery in the Kenilworth Lodge. They will be shown there starting Saturday, March 3. R oberts had been asked a number of times by the Sunny Hills staff to show his work in the lobby, but each time he refused. Everyone was pleasantly surprised when he said yes to Leavitts invitation to take his work public. When Leavitt returned to Struggles caused Peter Roberts to give up painting until a chance meeting rekindled his fire B y ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING The Citizens for G overnment Account-ability will hold a meeting on Thursday to discuss the next steps needed alter thec ountys current tourism tax. The group will hold their meeting a t 6 p.m. at Beef O Bradys in Sebring. According to organizer Bill Y oungman, the group has the language in place now to potentially put a repeal of the tourism tax on a ballot via a peti-t ion, but Youngman thinks there are better ways to accomplish the groups goal,n amely putting a sunset on the tax. We are for the tax, and we dontw ant to repeal it. Do you think there should be a tax in Highlands County that lasts forever? We need a sunseto n it. The group is just concerned about how the tax is being used Youngman said. Youngman approached county c ommissioners in August of last 2011 and asked for the tax to be rewritten with a sunset clause, but was turned down with a 2-2 deadlock from the board. Commissioners Jack Richie and Don Elwell voted to let the citizens decide while Commissioners Barbara Stewart and Greg Harris voted no.

Interim director Johanna Souther and board members discussed the organizations budget and brainstormed ideas on how to stretch their grant funds as well as maximize their opportunities. The finance and budget report revealed that the HCCH continues to operate through grant funds, which are somewhat tricky at times. e didnt get these funds until the end of the quarter last year, said Souther. Souther and board member Alice Oldham expressed extreme concern with the limited number of funds available for the HCCH. Is no one else concerned about the numbers? I need to know what we have and in detail, said Oldham. The HCCH has only a few thousand dollars in useable funds as of Tuesday and is currently short staffed.

C M Y K By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comLAKE PLACID ALake Placid resident was critically injured Saturday when his motorcycle collided with the rear of Dodge Caravan. Kirby Priddy was airlifted to Tampa General after he rear-ended a 2005 Dodge Caravan driven by Diosora Suazo, also of Lake Placid. According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, the Caravan was traveling north on U.S. 27 in the west lane near the intersection of Lake Hendry Drive. Priddy was also traveling n orth in the west lane, but at a faster rate of speed than the van, and failed to avoid the rear-end collision, wrote Trooper John Paikai in his report. After the impact, the Caravan continued to a controlled stop on the east shoulder of the road but Priddys 2012 Triumph T100 came to rest in both the inside and outside lanes on U.S. 27 facing north. Priddy was wearing a helmet, the report states. Suazo was wearing a seat belt and reported no injury. P aikai said in his report that alcohol was not a factor in the accident, but charges were listed as pending.

Three awards were presented by BetsyW addell, vice president of the Veterans Advisory B oard and president of Waves Highlanders 88. The coveted Veteran of t he Year award was presented to Harry Marsh, p resident of the Board of County Commissioners Veterans Advisory Board. Marsh is treasurer of the Veterans Council, ands erves on the executive board of American Legion P ost 74. Marsh has cochaired the Military Ball for several years. T he Non-Veteran of the Year award was presented t o Shannon Reed, one of the lead singers for Groovus. Reed volunteers t o sing at most of the veteran ceremonies sponsored by the Veterans Advisory Board and Veterans Council, as she has for thel ast six years. The newest award, the Veterans Unit of the Year, was presented to the U.S. Military Veterans Motorcycle Club.R eceiving the award on behalf of the unit was K enny Jensen, with members of the unit standing ast he presentation was made. The unit has assisted the Veterans Council with many of the sponsored events and has been avail-a ble to provide escort for many events, including the Vietnam Moving Wall. They assisted with the laying of the wreaths atC hristmas at the VAcemeteries, and regularly provide the final escort for veterans. Those attending the Ball were active duty, retired military, and veterans from around Highlands County and the surrounding communities. The Ball is sponsored by the Veterans Council of Highlands County Inc., a not-forprofit corporation. Proceeds benefit the veterans of Highlands County, and the Veterans Assistance Fund. Retired Command Sgt. Maj. Cesar Pinzon, president of the Veterans Council, opened the ceremony by greeting guests and introducing Barry Foster from radio station WWOJ, who offered the benediction. Fred Arbelo, Commander of the Military Order of Purple Heart, led the pledge of allegiance.

Swords used for the ceremony are among Jewetts cherished memorabilia. Among the dignitaries in attendance were Commissioners Jack Richie, Don Elwell, and Greg Harris, Tax Collector Eric Zwayer, Clerk of the Courts Bob Germaine, County Administrator Rick Helms, County Veteran Services Officer Denise D. Williams, and Assistant Veteran Services Officer Jackie Graham. Marsh named Veteran of Year Several honored at Military Ball In a story in Sundays News-Sun about JROTCstudents visiting the Sebring Airport for an up-close look at fighter planes, an incorrect quote was attributed to Roslyn Ore, whose first name was misspelled, indicating that her son, C.J. Ore, who was incorrectly referred to as Chris in the story, was the sole organizer of the fly-in and the Military Ball. The entire JROTCand many others worked to put together the presentation and the Military Ball that was on Saturday, not on Friday as the story indicated. Also, Rafael Collado, CEO of Phacil Company, was not on hand with his DA40 aircraft. The story indicated otherwise. The News-Sun apologizes for the errors and appreciates the opportunity to set the record straight.

The c asino-themed event kicks off Race Week at the track at noon on Wednesday, March1 4, literally hours after the gates open to the fans. Over the years, the event h as raised more than $100,000 with proceeds g oing to The Highlands County Humane Society, Highlands Art League, Champion for Children Foundation and the SebringH all of Fame Race Museum. First started in 2006, the event allows people to purchase chips to place on a giant wheel of fortune. Creator of the Hairpin Spin Lisa Celentano said theR aceway had always looked for ways to raise money for c harity. She approached Tres Stephenson, Sebring International Raceway president, with an entirely different idea create a luncheonw ith a huge roulette wheel and the opportunity to spin to win prizes. Add world famous drivers to help spin the wheel and sign autographs, she said, to make it even more exciting, and theni nclude an all-you-can-eat buffet with wine and gourmet c hocolates and desserts The concept of the Hairpin S pin is simple: numbered poker chips match tickets. The chip is put into the desired prizes basket and thep layer keeps the ticket. One at a time we scatter the basket full of chips around the wheel and have Race drivers, Race queens, a nd local celebrities spin the w heel. If the ticker lands on y our poker chip, you win that p rize, she said For a $2.50 chip you could win a vacation worth literally thousands of dollars, Celentano said. Tickets are $25 for the buffet, the wine, the fun, and the chance to win big. Poker c hips sell 10 for $25. Tickets will be available at the door if it is not a sold-out event.

Rick Scott is ordering the execution of a central Florida serial killer who raped and dismembered five women before murdering a teenager almost 30 years ago. Scott signed a death warrant Tuesday for David Alan Gore. He is scheduled to be executed April 12. In 1983, Gore picked up 17-year-old Lynn Elliott and her 14-year-old friend hitchhiking in Indian River County and took them to his house. He raped the younger girl three times, and then came for Elliott, who ran from the house. Aboy saw Gore running naked after her. When Gore caught Elliott, he dragged her to a tree and shot her in the head twice. Police found Elliotts body in Gores trunk. He later led authorities to the remains of five victims he had dismembered. Gov. signs death warrant

C M Y K S everal groups are banding together to ask voters for a sunset on the Tourism Tax. Proponents of the sunset point out the problems withh ow the tax is being used. Its not being spent for the intended purposes, they say. T hose against sunsetting the Tourism Tax claim it is not even paid by locals, butb y those visiting; that it is not a lot of tax, just 2 percent, a nd it brings more folks into the county who then stay at hotels and eat. Maybe theyw ill even buy a house and live here. T hose are both valid arguments on opposite sides of the current Tourism Tax. But take a look at a 1 mil tax without a sunset discov-e red in 2011 in Alabama tax law. I t was put into place just after the Civil War to fund t he Alabama Confederate Soldiers Home. The taxs purpose was to pay for the care of 60,000 Civil War veterans and their widows overt he years. The last five ladies to take advantage of the tax movedo ut of the home in 1939 and are long since dead. The tax, however, lives on.T he money is still being collected and over the years h as been diverted into other programs like veteran services and welfare programs. Just1 percent goes back into maintain a Confederate M emorial Park on the same grounds. All possibly worthy causes, but not what the people who are paying the tax werep romised about how the money was to be used. S unsets on taxes give everyone a chance to take a l ook and to decide if the tax is still applicable, if the purpose has changed, if the tax is needed or wasteful, or simply if the people still want to bet axed. Government is loathe to give up the money once it gets into the taxpayerspurse. Bureaucrats claim that oncey ou give up a tax, the taxpayer will never give it back. Thats simply not true.T axpayers often do approve taxes on themselves if they receive the services t hey want. No one really objects to paying for the r epairs of the pot holes on U.S. 27 or when the fire truck shows up when called.W ithout taxes, neither one of those things happen. T axing tourists in order to market the county is a good thing, economically. But sunsetting the tax will give everyone time to re-evaluatea nd account for effectiveness. R evenue is power. Sunsets are the balance. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, February 29, 2012Page 3ATODAYSEDITORIALTODAYSLETTERS 2 227 U.S. 27 South Sebring, FL 33870 863-385-6155 N EWSROOMROMONA WASHINGTONPublisher/Executive Editor Ext. 515editor@newssun.com S COTT DRESSELEditor E xt. 516scott.dressel@newssun.comD AN HOEHNESports Editor Ext. 528daniel.hoehne@newssun.com ADVERTISINGV ICKIE JONESExt. 518vickie.jones@newssun.com C IRCULATIONTONY MCCOWANE xt. 522anthony.mccowan@newssun.com BUSINESS OFFICEJ ANET EMERSONExt. 596legals@newssun.com EDITORIAL& OPINION Tourism tax, like all taxes, should have a sunset All taxes should have a sunset. Otherwise, its taxation without representation. I have followed the discussion of the Lake Placidp ark user fees closely over the past year. I had thought that once the topic was thoroughly examined, that all councilm embers would come to the same conclusion that Ms. (DebraWorley has. That is, that it is an extremely bad idea for rea-s ons that she listed: Discouraging exercise in a nation and communityp lagued by obesity at all age levels; that there is no way to come up with ane quitable fee structure for users of the facilities; and i n the end, any money collected would have little impact upon the financials tatus of the town. I could not agree more w ith Ms. Worley. In addition, there are other statements that have been made directly or implied by the primary council personp ushing the user fee ordinance. Some of those statem ents are extremely bothersome and also quite inaccurate. F irst is that residents of the surrounding communit ies are getting a free ride on the backs of the residents of Lake Placid. I c ontend that exactly the opposite has taken place. The 2010 Census shows approximately 1,500 residents in the town limitsw ith an average income of about $25,000. With the exception of the residents of Lake June Point, Waters Edge, and af ew others scattered around in the town, the great m ajority of the residents of Lake Placid pay no proper-t y taxes to the county or town or federal income taxes. With their economic situation, that is as it shouldb e. However, the town has received a lot of free money (anything coming from the Feds). The attitude that has contributed too ur national debt is that if we dont take it, someone else will, thus its free money. I believe the total over the past few years exceeds $2 million, certainly a burdensome amount for those 1,500 residents. Much of that amount has been for the beautification projects of the town and the water and sewage treatment plants. Some of those later funds must be repaid over time. However, I suspect that those of us that live in the surrounding communities have contributed much more to those funds than have the residents of the town. Thus, who is getting the free ride? The second premise for this move stated directly or indirectly by that same councilman is that residents in the surrounding community pay no taxes to the Town of Lake Placid. Again, absolutely wrong. I have seen statements in the past that the great majority of the funds received by the town are paid for by the businesses in the town. I believe that is still true. Those businesses rightly build that tax expense into their product or fee structure so that they can make a profit. Who is paying the majority of those taxes? The residents of the surrounding communities. Very few businesses would be in business without our business, including that of that same council member. I support those businesses, even when I have to pay a little more than going outside of the community as I am sure that many others in oura rea do. We support our community even though we do not live within the town limits.. I played for several years i n the Lake Placid Senior Softball League. Over the years, the members of thatl eague ... have done the work to prepare the fields for play. That process con-t inues today, with about the only expense to the town f or these daytime leagues is mowing the grass. We have even done that ono ccasion. One of the best things t he town did in many years was to hire John Komosa to head up the parks. John and his family have contributed much off dutyt ime to such things as The Miracle League and yet he h as been some what of a whipping boy for at least one member of the councilo n this subject. The Lake Placid Senior S oftball League has been decreased by one-fifth this year, probably in part by w hat is being said in the Council chambers that is, you are a bunch of free loaders. I personally find that to be an insult andk now that many others do also. This is all before the fee structure has been implemented. Who knows what will happen in thisl eague and the youth league after those fees are i mplemented. Churches say a justificat ion for not paying local property taxes, even though they get the benefit of such things as police, is because of the good they providef or the community. I agree with that argument. The same argument can be made for those youth leagues and their volun-t eers. They are certainly doing their fair share for the community. This includes all those special programs such as the Caladium Festival, Country Fair, etc., which bring business to the town. They are doing their part for our community. Perhaps the problem is one of priorities. Even though there is a lot of volunteer help, all of those beautification projects have put a considerable burden on town maintenance employees. That is not to say that such projects do not have their benefits, but they also come with a cost. Well, where should those funds come from to support the local parks? Some say more from the county and that certainly seems a reasonable thing to do. I would also like to suggest some from the Tourist Tax that is being fought over now. All of these arguments apply to our other communities such as Avon Park and Sebring as well as the county. The county got a grant to build a sports complex and then forced all of the senior leagues that used to play on other fields to play on those fields to help pay for them while the old fields remain empty. As Council Person Ms. Worley has stated, user fees are a bad idea. Bob Sheets is a Lake Placidarea resident. Guest colums are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff. Park user fees are a bad idea Guest Column Bob Sheets Some county employees dont have to worryE ditor: First, I want to make it clear that the c ounty employees referred to in this letter are the top 10 percent of the top paid employees and a select few specially treated employees. The source of my information comes from the Publici nformation coordinator, Gloria Rybinski and the records of the Clerk of Courts of Highlands County. I have received three sets of records from Ms. Rybinski and all three contained verifiable errors or omissions. One still lists Mr. Wheeler as an e mployee of Highlands County, and as such I feel it is fair to wonder if the payr oll department has been sending him checks each month. We all know about the downfall of the economy. The stock market fell 50 percent and many lost their jobs andh omes. Many were reduced in hours of work and reduced on hourly pay as well. Many lost their benefits and holiday and vacation pay. Well, our special county employees d id not have to concern themselves about the falling economy. They were getting a raise every six months, getting upgraded in pay grade, and still enjoying great benefits. The one employee I obtained a salary history from the county was not only getting two raises per year, the employee received four separate raises in one year. The total percentage for that year was 15 percent. Since each raise was compounded from the previous raise, the total percentage was actually 15.8 percent. Oh yeah, the salary is now $80,000. I have requested a few more but Ms. Rybinski now wants me to pay her for her time gathering up the records. I know we are already paying her a very generous salary. I had her name on the list. So while a few thousand of the citizens have lost their home, jobs, and loss of pay and benefits, the elite county employees are basking in the limelight of a celebrity while costing the citizens millions of dollars in mistakes. Think Kenilworth building. That will be the subject of my next letter. Think about this, how did the county buy a building that was not really completed in 2008 and the problem did not surface until 2011? I have several documents from the Clerk of Courts Records I will share with you. William E. Clagg Lake PlacidIt doesnt make cents Editor: I just read a news report that states that the cost of making a penny in the United States is almost 3 cents and the cost of making a nickel is 11 cents. And we wonder why our economy is in trouble? The cost for the two lowest circulating denominations increased due to higher material costs and a change in the method of allocation for sales, general, and administrative expenses. And then we wonder why our manufacturing is being outsourced elsewhere. Our debt problem only seems to be headed for the worst. It reminds me of the old joke when the Lord said, let there be light, we already owed Progress Energy three months worth. It is obvious what it is that our country is good at we recently won the Little League World Series. Its a good thing it was baseball and not a competition in math or science. Its time we get some smart people in Washington DC.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK There were 16 contestants singing in front of a packed house for the first Lester Kesselring Memorial Senior Karaoke Contest at Duffers Sports Grille on Saturday afternoon. Competitiors had to be 55 and older for this contest and they came from all over the county to perform. This was the first time that Duffers organized a karaoke contestgeared toward the senior audience. Severalolder residentshave been begging for a karaoke contest that fits their age bracket, contest coordinator Cindy Marshall said. It worked out perfect to honor a great man like Lester Kesselring who dedicated most of his life to helping elderly residents and at the same time to benefit an excellent charity like Nu-Hope Elder Care Services which helps many of our seniors in Highlands County The contest was done as a benefit for Nu-Hope Elder Care Serivces of Highlands County.

Winners in the female divison of the Senior Karaoke Contest were Aileen Metcalfe, first; Sue Capodanno, second; and Shirley Gerard, third. The male winners were David Calvin, first place; Charlie Berksdale, second; and Paul Martin, third place. First place received $100, second got $75 and third won $50.

C M Y K photograph the paintings, he found a different Peter Powell Roberts. His health was improving and his eyes sparkled. And I couldnt believe it he started painting again. Sunny Hills bought him supplies and even set up an easel for him. At a second interview, Roberts came across rather dapper, sporting neatly trimmed, grey-white hair and goatee and looking directly at the interviewer when he talked. He mentioned a failing memory, but spoke clearly and in detail, with little prompting needed. I was born in Cleveland, Ohio, 22 days after my mother arrived in the United States from Wales, he said. It must have been difficult for her to endure the pitching of the ship while pregnant. He attended Cleveland schools, graduating high school at 17. After graduation, he worked for a circus for a year, then, at 18, he was drafted into the Army, serving in France, Germany and Austria in the 44th Infantry Division. He arrived back in the U.S. on his 21st birthday aboard the Queen Mary. Following the war, he attended the Cleveland School of Fine Arts, graduating with a bachelor in fine arts degree. Afterwards, he worked as a graphic artist. Later, he came to Sarasota to visit an aunt and uncle and was soon offereda teaching position at the Ringling School of Art, where he remained for 23 years. While teaching in Sarasota, he met his wife, attended Nova University and earned a masters degree in education. Talking about his painting, Roberts said, When I paint, I dont set up my easel in the park. I first photograph the scenes I like and then paint them in my studio from the photos Ive made. I love to paint nature, to paint Gods creations. Every leaf and blade of grass is part of the environment we live in. I sometimes spend months on some paintings; others are a lot faster. Looking back at the impact of his wifes death last year, he said he felt devastated. I couldnt paint or concentrate on anything. My house, health and finances all fell into disrepair. But I ended up here in this wonderful facility. If Im not sleeping, eating or watching television, Im painting. The director here rescued 119 paintings from my old house and put them in storage for me. My life and health are back on track. Several pieces of Roberts art will be on exhibit at the HCAArt and Music Gallery at the Kenilworth Lodge for the month of March. There will be an opening reception from 6-8 p.m. on Saturday.

I f the tax was repealed, then it could be reinstated via a vote the following normal v oting season. That would mean the county would not be able to collect the tax in between on ref-e rendum and the next. No one really wants that, Youngman said. Y oungman stressed that he voted for the original tax in 2002, but the voters, he said, were not getting what was presented. Well, they said there would be no more than 29 percent of the tax spent on administration. Thats not what happened. The last b udget had close to 49 percent on administration. It is not our intention to do away w ith the tax. We want a sunset so we can look at it periodically and we want to have the money spent as was outlined to the voters in 2002, Youngman said. Youngman explained his groups intent ions at a commission meeting on Feb. 14 and sought direction from the county attorney with the petition language.

The House budget chief said Tuesday that negotiations with the Senate have ground to a halt in the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, Senate Democrats have joined leaders of that Republican-led chamber in pledging to stay as long as it takes until the budget is done right. The two chambers have passed rival versions of a new budget, but they disagree over a proposed $200 million recurring cut the House wants in spending for higher education. Legislators have just seven days left to bridge all the gaps in order to end the session by March 9.

AHouse panel on Monday approved the bill at its last committee stop. This means it is ready for a vote by the entire Republicancontrolled House during the final two weeks of the session. Rep. Richard Corcoran, R-New Port Richey, is sponsoring the bill (HB 859 House poised to approve more vouchers A ssociated PressWASHINGTON NASAsaid Monday its not giving up on Mars, but itll have to get there later and at a lower price. E arlier this month, the presidents budget canceled joint U.S.European robotic missions to Mars in 2016 and 2018. Now top science officials say they are scrambling to come up with a plan by the end of the summer for a cut-rate journeyt o the red planet in 2018. NASAsciences chief John G runsfeld said he thinks theres a better than even chance that NASA will not miss the 2018 opportunity. Thats when Mars passes closest to Earth, something that only happenso nce every 15 years. It offers a chance at fuel costsavings and the ability to send up more equipment. Agency officials who met with u pset scientists on Monday seemed intent on salvaging a program that took some of the deepest science spending hits in the presidents budget. Until this month, NASA had been ramping up its Martian ambitions. Meanwhile, this summer, the most high-tech rover ever, Curiosity, will land near the M artian equator in search of the chemical building blocks of life. The more scientists study Mars, the closer they get to answering whether microbial life once existedt here, a clue to the ultimate question: Are we alone? Two years ago, President Barack Obama stood at Kennedy Space Center and said it was more of a priority than going to the moon. He wanted astronauts there by the mid-2 030s. But the two upcoming missions w ere then canceled along with the most ambitious Mars flight yet one the National Academy of Sciences endorsed as the No. 1 solar system priority. That was ap lan to grab Martian rocks and soil and bring them back to Earth. Now thats not an option given the current budget, Grunsfeld said. Mars researcher Steve Squyres o f Cornell University, who headed the national academy panel said if NASAcouldnt make progress on a Mars sample return, the space agency should think about moving on to the next priorities, such as visiting Jupiters moon Europa. ere really at a crossroads, NASAplanetary sciences chief Jim Green said.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK It is a long season for junior college baseball. Certainly an adjustment for incoming high school players, which might help explain the rough start the South Florida Panthers suffered through. With 15 freshmen on the 24-man roster, a slow start might have been predicted and certainly came to be as the team once stood at 2-10. But Mondays 5-2 win over the College of Central Florida, ranked fourth in the state coming into the game, shows that with the long season comes the time to grow as a team and reach their collective potential. Sophomore Jared Hine toed the rubber to start Mondays game against the Patriots, to whom the Panthers had lost by one run on Friday, Feb. 10 in Ocala, By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comSebring swamped the compeition at last weekendsH eartland Conference Tournament, with the Lady Blue Streaks sweeping through to first-place finishes a cross the board, and the boys coming up one match s hort of duplicating the feat. D espite Saturday mornings overcast conditions and chilly breeze, nothing was cooling off the Streaks. The boys, at the Red Devil courts in Avon Park, saw Jeremy Camino, Sam Galati, Conner Angell, Joseph DeGenaro and Millind Kourana all advance to the finals in the Nos 1-5 singles, respectively. Each would come away with wins to make it a clean singles sweep. Both doubles teams had advanced to the final round of play, with Camino and Angell teaming up at No. 1 doubles to get the win and claim another first-place trophy. But DeSotos No. 2 doubles team crashed the party and ended the Sebring streak. The ladies, meanwhile, on their home court, were able to complete their dominant run. After Kaley Walter, Nisha Patel, Joy Donglasan, Kelly Broen and Morgan Heston had topped the charts, one through five, the doubles teams finished off the day ona high note. Walter and Donglasan teamed up to hold off Lake Placids Deta Waller and Stephanie Rodriguez for the No. 1 doubles trophy while Patel and Micaela DeVane won out over the Hardee duo of Ashley Baker and Caroline Durrance to win the trophy at No. 2 doubles. Both Streak squads were back in action Tuesday, hosting Lake Wales, before the ladies head to Haines City Thursday and both teams then travel to Okeechobee Monday, March 5. Both Lake Placid squads face DeSoto Thursday, with the Lady Dragons on the road and the boys hosting the Bulldogs. SPORTS C SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, February 29, 2012 News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE L ady Dragon Brittany Collison will be making her second FACA appearance this school year, in her second sport, as she heads to Tampa to play in the soccer all-star game this weekend.

Courtesy photo Sebring bowlers Thomas Watson and Meghan Williams, along with Lady Blue Streak bowling coach Paul Przychocki, were featured guests on Ed Lynchs Sports Talk show on Saturday, Feb. 25. Watson has garnered three career perfect games and averaged a 220 this past season. Along with being a bowler, Williams recently signed a letter of intent to play soccer at Converse College in Greenville, SC. The SportsT alk show airs live each Saturday immediately following the Noon News on WWTK 730-AM. Scheduled guests for the March 3 airing are Tres Stephenson, Michelle Delaney and Ken Breslauer, representing Sebring International Raceway. The listener that wins the 12 Hours of Sebring trivia contest will win free tickets to the 60th Anniversary 12 Hours of Sebring race.N ASCAR This Week3C Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Past course records came tumbling down at Saturdays third annual South Florida Community College P anther 5K Run/Walk. Sponsored by the SFCC Foundation, Inc., as a fundraiser for SFCC athletic programs, the race took participants on a brisk jaunt around the SFCC Highlands Campus, b eginning and ending at the SFCC University Center. Staying just steps behind the Corvette pace car provided by the Sebring International Raceway, overall winner Renee Marin sailed around the course in 17-minutes, 2-seconds, shaving nearly a minute and a half off Jaysons Bass previous course record of 18-minutes, 27-seconds. But Bass also beat his own record, finishing in 17:37, and setting a new standard in the mens 3539 age division. With a time of 19:39, male masters champion Boris Plavsk surpassed the previous record of 20minutes, 27-seconds he l d by Chuck Best. Michael Stewart set a new grand masters record o f 23:52, besting Jim Rectors previous record of 28:22. But Rector sliced minutes off his old record, too, completing the 5K in 26:10, and setting a new course record in the mens 70-74 age division. Michelle Delaney was the overall female winner with 24:41. Davida Austin claimed the female masters title with a time of 27:08 seconds. The grand maste rs female winner, SandyB rosius, boasted a time of 34:58. Approximately 160 ru nners and walkers took part in the Panther 5K Run/Walk, many for the chance to enjoy the scenic Highlands Campus on a spring morning while boosting their health and college athletics at the same time. Rick Hitt, SFCCs athletic director and head baseball coach, helped Panther 5K sets new records See 5K, Page 6C By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comTo earn the recognition as a Florida Athletic Coaches Association All-Star is quite notable an achievement. It takes a dedication and plenty of hard work, not to mention the talent to shine enough in a team sport to be noticed. To be recognized in two different sports, though, is borderline ridiculous though that is exactly what Lake Placids Brittany Collison now holds the distinction of. After a stellar volleyball s eason that saw the Lady Dragon Libero return from a back injury the previous season and anchor the back line of defense to help her team reach the state playoffs, and capture a game against the eventual state champions, Collison earned the honor of playing in the FACAAll-Star Classic. From there it was on to the soccer season, where Collison switched to offensea nd was a scoring machine in leading the team to a fantastic season. She may have come up just short of the single-season school scoring record, but a surprise was soon in the offing when FACAcalled again. (Lake Placid Athletic Director) Mrs. Rivers came and pulled me out of class, waving a stack of papers, Collison said. I asked if that was the copy of my physical. She said no, this is for the All-Star game, you were picked to play in it. And in so doing, she became the first Lake Placid player, and one of few in the annals of Highlands County, to be selected to play in two i n the same school year. I was just overwhelmed with joy, Collison continu ed. It feels so great to get the opportunity to play in two of the games. Im very excited because soccer is my passion and I wanted this more than anything. Im honored to be recognized and to be able to represent Lake Placid a nd Highlands County The FACAfestivities ta ke place this weekend, March 2 a nd 3, on the University of South Florida campus in Tampa. Collison named FACA All-Star again I asked if that was a copy of my physical. She said no, this is for the All-Star game, you were picked to play in it.

C M Y K and started out strong, retiring the first two batters rather easily. Two walks followed, however, and a 3-2 count threatened to load the bases. But a grounder to second baseman Lucas Bagnara soon ended the threat. South Florida threatened as well in the bottom of the first, with Jordan Rivera singling with two outs, stealing second and reaching third on t he catchers throwing error. Rivera would stay at third, however, and the Panthers would have to wait until the second to dent the scoreboard. It was then that a light but steady rain began to fall before Tyler Anderson was hit by a pitch to start the inning, stole second and moved to third on a single to left by catcher Joseph Jusino of Lake Wales. Avon Parks Ty Jackson then sent a fly ball through the raindrops, deep enough to left to bring Anderson in for a 1-0 lead. Hine got through the top of the third, with help from first baseman Kevin Schubert, who made a diving stab on a shot up the line and raced to first in time to retire the side. S FCC would add a run to the lead in the bottom of the frame on a David Samperi infield single, stolen base and R BI single from Sam Morgan, and would add on t hree more in the fourth. S chubert lead off the frame with a single, which was followed by consecutive singles to left and right, respectively, from Jusino and Jackson. Jacksons was hit so hard, got to the fielder so fast, that Schubert initially stopped at third. But when the Patriot right fielder mishandled the rainslickened ball, Schubert scampered home. With two outs, Samperi would come up and slice one into left for a run-scoring double and a balk would bring home another to give South Florida a 5-0 lead. With the skies getting increasingly dark and the radar showing heavy rains on the way, the Panthers now needed just three outs to make this game official but they wouldnt come quite so easily and the rains held off. Consecutive bunt singles opened the top of the fifth before an RBI single brought home one run and an error on the same play plated another and sent the batter all the way to third with no outs. Hine battled through, getting the next two batters looking before deflecting a chopper up the middle that Bagnara corralled and threw to first for the out. With the rain still light, the Panthers took their turn at bat, but went down in order. The Patriots then began to rally in the top of the sixth, actually tying the game at 55, but not getting through the inning before the skies opened up, lightning flashed and the heavy rains came pouring down. Reverting back to the last completed inning, South Florida got the win with a little help from Mother Nature. The win makes it eight out of the last 10, with a 14-5 win Friday against Dundalk of Maryland and a double header sweep of the University of Tampa B team Saturday. e had what I would call a flat night against Seminole (a 6-5 loss last Wednesday), head coach Rick Hitt said. But we are playing much better as a whole. We are finding ways to win and haveb een in several close games t he last few weeks and came out on top in most of them. I watch our team and believe we have yet to hit on all cylinders with all three phases of the game, he continued. Were working on our toughness and enthusia sm to play, and Im hopeful that starts to show as we enter conference play two weeks from now Now 11-11-1 after the slow start, the Panthers are certainly moving in the right direction and will stay busy to keep it going. The team is at home tonight against Lake Sumter, on the road Friday at PascoHernando and return home for a Saturday double headera gainst visiting Lincolnland in the Illinois teams annual trip south. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, February 29, 2012Page 5C 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 Continued from 1C SFCC evens season mark after 2-10 start The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Above: Shortstop Sam Morgan throws on the run Saturday i n South Floridas twin-bill sweep of the University of T ampas B team.

Highlands Youth Football garage sale and registration By JON KRAWCZYNSKI Associated PressF ORTMYERS The Boston Red Sox are saying g oodbye to their captain. Catcher Jason Varitek has decided to retire after 15 seasons with the Red Sox, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Monday night. The person requested anonymity because Varitek had not made an announcement. The Boston Globe first r eported Variteks decision. Varitek is expected to m ake it official Thursday at Bostons spring training c amp in Fort Myers. Now that the news is out, it doesnt make it any easier to take. Red Sox players had somber reactions Tuesday, with David Ortiz saying it was an honor to be Variteks teammate. Ace Josh Beckett says Varitek will be sorely missed both on the field and i n the clubhouse. He says there isnt a playe r in baseball that he respects more than Varitek. J arrod Saltalamacchia replaced Varitek as the teams starting catcher last season. He says Varitek helped restore his confidence in his abilities. Afirst round draft pick in 1994, Varitek came to Boston with Derek Lowe in a trade from Seattle for Heathcliff Slocumb in 1997 a nd spent his entire big league career with the Red S ox. He caught four no-hitters, m ade three All-Star teams won two World Series titles, all the while endearing himself to the teams demanding fan base with his unyielding work ethic and a refusal to back down. Varitek surpassed Carlton Fisk for most games caught in a Red Sox uniform in 2006 and finished with 1,488 games. Ortiz on Varitek: Were going to miss him

C M Y K By MARK LONG Associated PressDAYTONABEACH Jimmie Johnson was long gone when all the Daytona disorder ensued. He missed the explosion, the fire, the lengthy cleanup, the finish and the fog. He surely would have endured it all rather than the night he had at the Daytona 500. The five-time NASCAR champion followed up his worst season with his worst finish in The Great American Race. Johnson wrecked on the second lap Monday night and finished 42nd his worst showing in 53 starts spanning four series at the famed track. This one came on the heels of a career-low, sixth-place finish in the Sprint Cup standings. Im just really, really bummed to start the season this way, Johnson said. For all the hard work that has gone into getting ... ready for tonight; we didnt get to complete two-and-a-half miles of green-flag racing. So, Im pretty bummed. He had plenty of company. Hendrick Motorsports teammates Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne also ended up in the garage. Gordon blew an engine on lap 82 and finished 40th. Kahne was involved in a seven-car accident on lap 190 and ended up 29th. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was Hendricks lone bright spot, finishing second to Matt Kenseth. Johnson had little control over his exit. Elliott Sadler nudged Johnson from behind, turning his No. 48 Chevrolet into the wall and collecting several other cars David Ragan then slammed hard into Johnsons spinning car. Former IndyCar star Danica Patrick, former series champion Kurt Busch and defending Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne also were caught up in the mess, which happened super early in a rain-delayed race that drivers, crews and fans waited more than 30 hours to get under way. e were all just getting up to speed, and I had some help from behind that got me out of control, Johnson said. From there on, I was just spinning. Johnson won five consecutive Sprint Cup championships before last season. He vowed to get back on track in 2012, but his team had a setback on the opening day of Speedweeks. Johnsons car failed initial inspection Feb. 17, and NASCAR officials indicate that crew chief Chad Knaus will be penalized this week. By JENNAFRYER A ssociated PressDAYTONABEACH Well, NASCAR certainly knows how to make a primetime impression. Rain, fire and Tide laundry detergent all factored into a Daytona 500 that will go down as the most bizarre in NASCAR history. And Brad Keselowski tweeted most of it live. From his race car. Then he provided another update minutes after crashing a t 190 mph. And oh, yeah, Matt Kenseth picked up his second Daytona 500 title. ou would think after 65 years and running all the races that NASCAR has run ... that youve seen about everything, NASCAR President Mike Helton said. ou do think about, Oh, my gosh, if that can happen, what else can happen? The first Daytona 500 to be postponed took more than 36 hours to complete after rain pushed it from its scheduled Sunday afternoon start to Monday at lunch, and ultimately turned it into the first ever NASCAR race run in prime-time television. Then Juan Pablo Montoya crashed under caution into a safety truck filled with about2 00 gallons of jet fuel, and the collision caused a massive fireball that scorched the track and will be the most i ndelible image of the 54th running of the Great A merican Race. W hat did they use to clean it up? Tide laundry detergent, of course. Seriously. The two-plus hour stoppage turned into a tweet-up of sorts, as the drivers climbed from their cars and crowded around Keselowski, who had pulled out his phone to provide real-time updates to his fans by posting photos and answering questions. His number of followers ballooned from about 65,000 at the start of the race to almost 200,000 by the time the fire was extinguished and racing could resume. I thought it was pretty funny, said Dale Earnhardt Jr., who had his losing streak hit 130 races when he came up short in his bid to chase down Kenseth in a two-lap overtime sprint. That was kind of fun actually, standing around on the back straightaway. We did take the phone and put it to some use and looked up the weather When the 500 finally ended in the early morning hours Tuesday, the two-week SpeedWeeks odyssey wasnt over: Fog closed the North Carolina airports, stranding d rivers and teams at Daytona for yet another night. Now believe it or not I cant go home, fourth-place finisher Denny Hamlin posted on Twitter. Fogged in. Yet another night in Daytona. The endurance race will be long over by the time the television ratings come in later Tuesday. No one was sure what to expect as Fox made the unprecedented decision to show the race in prime time the best case scenario once rain washed it out on Sunday. NASCAR originally rescheduled for Monday afternoon but scrapped those plans in the morning based on more rain. With a 4.5 overnight rating o n Foxs coverage of Sundays rain delay, vice chairman of Fox Sports Media Group Ed Goren wasn t sure what to expect Monday night. We are in the middle of F ebruary ratings sweeps, and there are significant successful shows on other networks, Goren said. The question becomes, Will the loyal NASCAR audience find us?The casual fan seems to have caught on Sunday for the storylines and the season, but the casual fan who was with us yesterday, now in prime time, has other options. So, let them race, and lets find out what happens. What happened was a show like no other, beginning from the second lap of the race, when five-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson was caught in an accident that also collected Danica Patrick, ruining her Daytona 500 debut. From there it was 25 lead changes among 13 drivers, 10 cautions, and that really big fire. The thing that comes into my mind is NASCAR just cant catch a break, Earnhardt said. Were trying to deliver, and we just have some unfortunate things happen such as the rain delay, potholes in the track a couple of years ago. Were a good sport, and were trying to give a good product. Kenseth and Roush Fenway Racing teammate G reg Biffle took over the lead following the fire stoppage with 40 laps to go. Montoya was driving alone under caution when something broke on his car. He spun hard into a safety truck, and the collision caused an instant explosion. Montoya, who said his helmet was singed in the fire and his foot ached, said he felt a vibration in his car before the accident. Ive hit a lot of things but a jet dryer? he said. Itj ust felt really strange, and as I was talking on the radio, the car just turned right. Jet fuel the safety truck held 200 gallons of kerosene poured down the surface of Turn 3 at Daytona International Speedway after the accident, creating a fieryl asting image of NASCARs biggest race of the year. Journeyman driver Dave Blaney was leading at that t ime because he had not pitted, and all the drivers surr ounded him and Keselowski as they lingered outside their p arked cars during the cleanup. Blaneys lead was shortlived, however, as he pitted for gas as soon as racing resumed. Kenseth took over the lead, with Biffle behind him, and the race went green with 34 laps remaining. It became clear immediately that nobody could catch the Fords. Earnhardt tried several different strategies, same for Hamlin, but neither could get between Kenseth and Biffle. Until the final lap, Biffle dutifully stayed in line behind his teammate, and when Earnhardt finally tried to make his move around him, neither driver could catch Kenseth. Earnhardt held off Biffle at t he line, while Kenseth grabbed his second Daytona 500 win in four years. He won the 2009 race by p assing Elliott Sadler on the backstretch moments before t he caution came out for rain, and he was declared the winn er while waiting on pit road. e had a really fast car a nd have fast cars in the past, and I figured out a way to mess it up, Kenseth said. I am glad it all worked out. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, February 29, 2012Page 7C HARDER HALL GOLF COURSE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; sports; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 5 5 1 1 3 3 HIGHLANDS COUNTY RECYCLING; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 2/19,26,29; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 6 6 1 1 0 0 U NIVERSAL CENTER OF NATURAL MA; 3.639"; 5"; Black; 2/29/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 7 7 4 4 2 2 4 4 Matt Kenseth wins Daytona 500 after fire and rain MCTphoto A fireball erupts from a t rack dryer truck after it was struck by driver Juan Pablo Montoya during ac aution in the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida, Monday, Feb., 27. 5-time champ Johnson wrecks early Jimmie Johnson

C M Y K Recently, we mourned the loss of Whitney Houston. As I spent all dayl istening to her music one song said so much to me: The Greatest Love of All. We will always love her voice and how we feelw hen we hear her sing. There is a line in this song that touches my heart: Learning to love yourself, it is the greatest love of all. H ow do you learn to love yourself? What is Love a nyway? To us it may be something that we have never had. Several yearsa go when I was in an abusive relationship, all I wante d was to feel loved. It didt matter if I was loved, I just wanted to feel like I was. What I finally came to realize was I was neverg oing to feel this way by his actions. I needed to find o ther ways to feel loved. I started to meditate and in order to stay focused onm y breathing I would repeat with each breath in I Love and the breath out Myself. Even though I didnt believe it yet, I stilld id it. I would meditate 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening. T his became a way for me to slow my brain down. A fter a while, the words that I said to myself began to manifest themselves into actions. When something would n ot feel right, I would ask myself if doing that was loving myself. Now I have taken those simple words and turned them into my mission statement for my life to find joy in every-t hing I do. This is one of the greate st gifts I ever gave myself. It keeps me from perpetuating the abuse by showing me that I am loved.Love is an action word. It is ther esult of some little deed that makes us feel good or special. I want you to takea few minutes right now and write down a list oft hings that you can do for yourself to put into action the word love. Most of mine have become part of my daily routine. 1. Getting dressed to shoes, hair and face 2. Loving Movement 3. Drinking my water 4. Eating Breakfast 5. Eating snacks 6. Taking my vitamins 7. Taking a bubble bath 8. Removing my makeup at night 9. Laying out my clothes 10. Listening to beautiful music in my home and car 1 1. Going to bed at a decent hour These things sound familiar dont they? Isnt it strange that something sos imple can be the basis for our FlyLady way of loving o urselves. If I can teach you to do this then believe it or not your home willc ome together and you will be FLYing! P ampering is not a chore that can be procrastinated. When you dont take careo f yourself it is one of the first signs that you could be depressed. If you dont take c are of you, who will? You do have time and w hen you hear yourself say, I dont have time! then I want you stop right there and do just five minutes. You are going to feel bettera nd before you know it you will be FLYing. Hey, we may have to fake it till we make it but isnt that what practice really is. It will become a habit that will continue to bless you andy our family. After all, if Momma aint happy, aint n obody happy. Take five minutes and write down your list of things you can do for yourself. Then I want you to cutt hem up and put them in a jar and each day I want you to pull one out and surprise yourself with a good deed. Learning to love yourself i s the greatest gift of all!

One of my classes is taught by a great professor who also works at a state college teaching other teachers. After an evening class with him one night, I returned to the classroom because I forgot something and ended up walking with him back to the parking lot. While putting stuff into my car I saw him get into another students car. I waited a while without them realizing I was there and ended up seeing my professor and this student smoking weed and fooling around. I feel angry and betrayed knowing he would put his career in danger. They are both consenting adults, but I dont know whether I should report it or not. What do you think? Betrayed Student on the West Coast DearStudent: Unless you have ABSOLUTE PROOF that your professor was smoking something other than tobacco, I think you should keep your mouth shut. As you said, he was with another consenting adult. Are you sure your feelings of anger and betrayal arent jealousy? Because you asked what I think, Ill tell you: Mind your own business. DearAbby: Ayear ago my husband and I met a nice couple on a cruise. We had so much fun with them we invited them to our home for a visit. While they were here I showed them the photo album I had made with our cruise pictures. They were in most of them. It has been three months since their visit and we cant find the album. Afew weeks ago, while talking to the wife on the phone I mentioned it. She said we didnt show the album to them but she wished we had. Abby, we know we did! Should I mention it again or just make a new one and never invite them back? Missing More Than The Pictures? DearMissing: You appear to be seeing the picture clearly now. While the couple may have been charming, theyre not nearly as nice as you assumed. If you want a record of your cruise, by all means create a second album. (Surely you dont need me to advise you to never invite them back.) DearAbby: My boyfriend and I have been together for 19 years. We have three children and from the outside looking in, you would think we have a wonderful life. But my boyfriend has been unfaithful numerous times, which has caused me to have trust issues and insecurities. I took him back because I wanted our children tob e raised in a two-parent home, which is hard to find these days. The problem is, two years ago I cheated on him. He found out by tracking my phone, bugging the house andm onitoring my calls and emails. He reminds me of it every day and we argue constantly. Im sorry it happened, but I still have trust issues because I cant see what he has been up to. I guess my question is is this a relationship worth saving? Good For The Gander, Good For The Goose DearGoose: Lets review your letter. Nineteen years as a couple, three kids and hes a serial cheater. You cheated too, and your complaint is that you cant monitor your boyfriends activities the way he is scrutinizing yours? Although you say youre staying together for the children, a household filled with anger and suspicion isnt healthy for them or for you. This is not a relationship worth saving in my book.

Student is shocked to spy professors feet of clay The Greatest Love of All FLY Lady Leanne Ely Dear Abby Associated PressThe Frays new song Heartbeat seems to be about reviving a broken relationship, with lyrics like I wanna kiss your scars tonight, and baby, you gotta try, you gotta let me in. But the inspiration for the rock tune has little to do with a failed romance. Instead, it comes from one of the worst tragedies in recent memory the genocide in Rwanda nearly a decade ago. Lead singer and writer Isaac Slade was visiting the Rwandan capital of Kigali last year when he found himself standing on the site where more than 250,000 victims of the countrys 1994 genocide were buried. Then he had an epiphany. (I was with a bunch of local (people) and ex-pats, all standing in circle holding hands, just kind of thinking and talking about Rwanda. This chick was standing next to me and I couldnt tell if it was her heartbeat or mine, but it felt like the country was getting its pulse back to it, Slade remembered. I busted out my phone and wrote that pre-chorus of this song called Heartbeat, and wrote some of the chorus on the way back, he said. The vocalist also spent time with President Paul Kagame after a friend arranged a meeting. The visit took place near Kagames birthday, so Slade performed a solo version of The Frays biggest hit so far, How to Save ALife, in the presidential place. Slade bonded with Kagame and the two men spoke of family and the darkest period in Rwandan history, when extremist Hutus killed more than 500,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus in the country. Kagame led Rwandan Tutsi soldiers at the time. Tragedy in Rwanda inspires new Fray song Stars to celebrate Johnny Cashs 80th with concertNASHVILLE, Tenn.

Finding creative ways to enjoy healthy foods like watermelon is a g reat way to encourage the whole family to eat w ell and have fun while doing it. Here are three ways you can get the whole family in on some fun and healthy eating:The wetter, the better Playing hard on a hot summer day can take a lot out of you. In addition to drinking plenty of water, look for foods that can help you keep hydrated. Watermelon is 92 percent water so keep some slices or cubes in the refrigerator for a handy, hydrating snack. For a fun, kid-friendly twist, use cookie cutters to cut watermelon into fun shapes.Get colorful For a real nutritional boost, serve plenty of colorful, deeply pigmented produce. For example, red peppers, carrots, broccoli and grapes are packed with minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. In addition to vitamins Aand C, watermelon has a higher level of the antioxidant lycopene than any other fresh fruit or vegetable. Let the kids use an ice cream scooper or melon-baller to scoop out watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew to make a colorful and nutritious dessert.Think outside the recipe box Look for fun and unusual ways to serve healthy foods. These recipes from the National Watermelon Promotion Board, for example, are creative enough to appeal to kids and grownups, and easy enough for just about anyone to make. Healthy eating doesnt have to be boring at all it just takes a little creative thinking to get everyone in the family playing with their food. You can find more deliciously fun ways to enjoy watermelon, and sign up for a free newsletter, at www.watermelon.org. Pick a GoodWatermelon I s as easy as 1, 2, 31.Look the watermelon over. You are looking for a firm, symmetrical watermelon that is free from bruises, cuts or dents. 2.Lift it up. The watermelon should be heavy for its size. Watermelon is 92 percent water. 3.Turn it over. The underside of the watermelon should have a creamy yellow spot from where it sat on the ground and ripened in the sun.Watermelon Strawberry Shake and Frozen Smoothie PopsMakes 4 Strawberry Shake 1 container(8 ounces nonfat yogurt 2 cups cubed, seeded watermelon 1 pint fresh strawberries, cleaned and hulled 1 medium banana, peeled and sliced In blender or food processor, process yogurt, watermelon, strawberries and banana until smooth and frothy. Serve immediately. Frozen Smoothie Pops Strawberry Shake Small papercups Popsicle sticks Pour prepared Watermelon Strawberry Shake into small paper cups. Freeze, inserting popsicle sticks or plastic spoons when mixture is partially frozen. Or, pour Watermelon Strawberry Shake into ice cream machine. Set and enjoy.Helpful Carving HintsWatermelon Pizza SupremeServes 6 1 slice watermelon (8 to 10 inches around and 1 inch thick), drained to remove excess moisture 1 cup strawberry preserves 1/2 cup white chocolate chips 1/2 cup raisins 1/2 cup chopped walnuts 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut Place watermelon slice on a serving platter and cut into 6 wedges, leaving them in the shape of a pizza. Spread preserves over watermelon and sprinkle toppings over the top.Ice Cream Cone SundaesServes 8 8 ice cream cones of choice 8 tablespoons pineapple cream cheese frosting (recipes available online) 1/2 cup dried Craisins 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt 8 scoops seedless watermelon (use an ice cream scooper) Additional toppings of yourchoice: sprinkles, pineapple chunks, chocolate chips orcoconut flakes Pipe a tablespoon of the frosting into the bottom of each cone. Divide Craisins over frosting. Top Craisins with yogurt. Place an ice cream scoop of watermelon on top of each cone. Top with additional toppings as desired and serve. Read through the directions before you start.Have the watermelon at room temperature when you carve. That makes it easier to cut.Drain cut watermelon and other fruitbeforeplacingitinthecarving.When removing excess flesh, try to leave it in big pieces. Its easier for making melon balls or cubes.Use a green dry erase marker, then wipe off excess marker after making cuts.Surf WaveOval orround shaped watermelon Kitchen and paring knives Cutting board Green dry-erase marker (preferably washable) Large bowl and spoon Brown sugarorraw sugar Small dolls orbeach themed toys 1.Wash watermelon under cool running water and pat dry. 2.On a cutting board, place watermelon on its side and cut off 1/4 to 1/2 inch from the stem end, being careful not to cut too deep into the white part of the rind. This will provide a sturdy base. 3.Using the dry-erase marker, draw a wave from the top of the watermelon halfway down, similar to a backward s C. Repeat on the other side to form a wave. 4.Use the knife to carefully cut away the parts of the watermelon that you will not be using. Use the spoon to hollow out the watermelon, reserving the inside watermelon to cut up and serv e. 5.Place the carving on a serving platter covered with brown sugar. Decorate with toys and shells and fill your carving with fruit.

T hree firefighters geared their training on what to do in case of a fire and how to exit a burning structure safely. They provided a hands-on training that allowed each Aktion Club member to learn how to open a window, pusho ut a screen and safely climb out the window. They stood by to assist and even wore their bunker gear so each individual would be comfort-a ble in seeing the firefighter in that apperatus. T his training was developed because many individu-a ls with disabilities are taught to exit out a door during frequent fire drills that are done in agencies and at their homes. Some have beent aught to feel their bedroom door before opening it and they even know to go to the window but the training has stopped there. Although this may seem l ike a simple procedure for most people, when working w ith individuals with disabilities you have to make sure to demonstrate every step,A ktion Club Advisor Cindy Marshall said. In working w ith former Aktion Club President Ralph Meyers, who is also a volunteer firefighter w ith West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department, we realized that a lot of our members dont even know how to open a window let alone crawl outo f it. If we dont teach them, they wont know what to do. I think this was a very good training, Meyers said. The members used the w indow on the porch of the Adult Basic Education buildi ng on the Arc campus which closely resembles a typicalb edroom window. Stepping stools and chairs were placed on both sides to reassure safety. Members were advised to go home andc heck out their bedroom windows so they can see how they differ. I did it, screamed Aktion Club member Helena Spies as she exited out the window. I was a little nervous but they helped me, she added a s she pointed to the firefighters. As each member exited the w indow, their peers applauded and shouted out cheers for t hem. For those who had physical limitations, the firefighters showed them how to c heck a door and exit out it safely. The training gave each member self confidence in doing a task they have neverd one before. The Aktion Club consists of people with disabilities and is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Sebring. The club has 60 members. It was our pleasure to offer this training and to see h ow well each of them did, said firefighter ReachealL ouzau. They all did a great job. I am very proud of them. Louzau was joined by Lt. Jose DeLeon and JoelG utierrez. The firefighters also showed off the equipment on their fire truck and talked about how to operate each piece.

K-Kids collect 840-plus books for local children S pecial to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Erica D ouberley, program director and health education director for the Heartland Rural Health Network, spoke to the Lake PlacidR otary Club recently. Douberly runs the the abstinence program, whichwas eight weeks long for girls in HighlandsC ounty and one in DeSoto County. Now the programs have expanded to a 19-w eek program as an afterschool program. She helps the students talk andd ealwith Alcohol and substance abuse, as well as teen p regnancy. She tries to help them gain self-worth, pride and confidence. D ouberly began her experience as a 18-year-old t hat was pregnant. Her oldest daughter is now 14. She spent four yearsworking asan officer in the prison system, then decided shew anted to be on the other side of helping teenagers. T here are 12 after school programs in Lake Placid, 20 in Sebring and 20 in AvonP ark. The classes are designed for 6 to 12 sess ions, but usually have 20 or more.Highlands County girls from ages 10 to 14 have had four babies borna nd 15to 19-year-olds have had 154 babies born. Douberly said that the programs try to empower the girls to take care oft hemselves and get a job, which is sometimes hard because of thehelp that they receive from pro-g rams. She tries to teach theg irls about myths of HIVando ther sexual diseases. She said attitude a mong the students is everything. She teaches the girls that the the littlet hings do matter The most prevalent dise ases are chlamydia and herpes found in young teenage girls. The girls can also get sexually transmitted diseases even if a con-d om is used. Peer and partner pressure is very great w ith teenagers. The school guidance counselors usually recom-m end the students, but the parents have to give their p ermission. The program is funded by state funds.

Several residents have been afflicted with flu-like ailments recently. Plus, we have had a rash of hospital-i zations and day surgeries.

Eunice Hazelton was hospitalized a few days but hasb ounced back strongly; one tough lady. Bill Lapeer has been home a few days from Florida Hospital and says its a day-t o-day thing but seeing him out walking Angel is a good sign. Geri Spangler is having some extensive eye problems which will take a few weeks to cure. Gisela Bukantis is experiencing sciatica problems which will require treatment. Ive been there so know what she is going through. Chuck and I are thankful he doesnt require knee surgery as initially thought.

James Scott, Arcadia Village FMO Park Rep., welcomed a great gathering of FMO members.

He is a wealth of information concerning FMO matters and willingly shares his expertise with constituents. Bill and Roy Brewster offer free training for parkF MO reps and various Homeowner Assn. officers. The purpose being to increase FMO membership and assist FMO Reps inl earning services available to Homeowners Association board members when problems arise between owners/management andp ark residents. Due to unfavorable changes by Citizens Property Insurance Co., Gallagher has appointed Bill Williams toh ead a committee to investigate and possibly rectify these situations. Rest assuredi f Citizens succeeds, other companies will follow the leader. B ill also spoke concerning our lack of leadership in the D istrict. It is imperative that people step up to lead our area. Our thanks to CathyH ealy for her service as Secretary/Treasurer for many y ears. Cathy agreed to lead the District recently but ill health forced her to resign. We were indeed sorry to hear this and wish her well soon.W e strongly encourage people to consider the import ance of FMO to manufactured home living and become FMO members, pos-s ibly assisting in forming a District Board.

C M Y K By JOCELYN NOVECK A PNational WriterJustin Bieber wasnt mincing words. Im here to bring you the 18 to 24 demographic, the teen pop star told Billy Crystal in the opening Oscar montage. So, how long do you want me to stay here for? The two were spoofing Midnight in Paris, a film about time travel, and actually it did feel like Bieber had swooped in from the future. Because everything else about this years Oscars had a distinct vintage feel, from the honored films harking back to early years of cinema, to the longevity of some of the winners, to Crystal himself, hosting for the ninth time. Did the Return of Crystal achieve its purpose? The reviews were mixed, with some loving his familiar zingers, others feeling they were more than stale. But Crystal can claim a victory for the over-60 set: The Nielsen Co. estimated Monday that 39.3 million people watched the Oscars on ABC Sunday night, up from the 37.9 million viewers during the much-panned 2011 show where the much younger James Franco and Anne Hathaway shared hosting duties. Much has been made of the retro feel that characterized the two most-honored films: Best picture-winner The Artist, a black-and-white, mostly silent paean to old Hollywood (it also took best director and actor), and Hugo, an equally loving evocation of the early days of cinema, which took a fistful o f technical awards. But one could argue they were honored not because ofa sudden wave of nostalgia, but because the craft involved in making them was fresh and creative. If they werent enormously inventive, said film historian Leonard Maltin, nothing else would have mattered. Nobody, he reasoned, had been crying out for a resurrection of the silent film or a movie that honors film pioneer Georges Melies. But it was no coincidence that the Oscars brought back Crystal, who swooped in to save the day after Eddie Murphy pulled out. (Murphy had stepped down in solidarity with Brett Ratner, who resigned as producer of the show after making a gay slur.) The choice of host also inevitably seemed like a reaction to the young and hip fiasco of last years show, which tried to lure younger viewers with its attractive young hosts, only to falter, especially because Franco was so relentlessly laid-back, it seemed like he wanted to be backstage partying. Meanwhile, when Crystal came on for a cameo, he received a standing ovation from the joke-starved crowd before he even spoke. Some of Crystals routines Sunday won praise: The montage where he inserts h imself into films was typically clever, and included a kiss on the lips from George Clooney never a bad thing. The hosts best jokes were those that poked fun at the Oscars themselves: Nothing takes the sting out of these tough economic times like watching a bunch of millionaires giving golden statues to each other, he quipped. But a few others fell flat, including what some felt was an ill-advised moment in blackface for Crystal when he reprised his old Saturday Night Live impersonation of Sammy Davis Jr. Maltin, a veteran watcher of Oscar telecasts, pronounced Crystal a success. It wasnt just his opening montage or song parody weve seen that before, he said. It was the way he kept the ceremony lively and punctuated it with zingers and laugh lines. Not too many people can do that. Comedian Andy Borowitz, who always keeps up a vigoro us Oscar-night Twitter feed, had a different perspective. At 82, Christopher Plummer is 18 years younger than this Oscar shows jokes, he tweeted. At another point, he wrote This shtick feels old, then attributed the quote to his grandparents. At another point: I never thought Id say this, but I miss ... James Franco. Age was a constant theme. When Plummer won his supporting actor Oscar the first of his career he spoke to the statuette: Youre only two years older than me, darling. Crystal then quipped that Plummers win had bumped the average age of winners up to 67. And the night was young. Still to come: the 76-year-old Woody Allens first Oscar since 1987, the original screenplay award for Midnight in Paris. No, he wasnt there to accept it he eschews award ceremonies and there was something comfortably familiar about t hat, too. Meryl Streeps award for The Iron Lady, her third Oscar, was also a tribute to longevity shed been nominated 17 times and hadnt won in 29 years. But she chose to speak of longevity of another kind: marital. Everything I value most in our lives, you gave me Streep told husband Don, tearfully. She went on to give an equally emotional tribute to her makeup artist, J. Roy Helland, who had worked with her for 37 years. Streeps minor upset aside many had predicted Viola Davis to win for The Help it was a predictable night. But a few moments stood out for entertainment value: An exaggerated flash of leg by Angelina Jolie, for example, in a high-slit dress got so much attention it had its own Twitter feed, Angies Right Leg, which had more than 18,000 followers by Monday afternoon. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, February 29, 2012Page 7D 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 ADVANTAGE FLOOR COVERING; 3.639"; 3"; Black; 2/29;3/4; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 7 7 4 4 1 1 6 6 S pecial to the News-SunSEBRING With a well a ttended ribbon-cutting ceremony officiated by the presid ent of the Sebring Chamber of Commerce, nonprofit Cornerstone Hospice recentlyi naugurated its new office at 2906 Sparta Road and U.S. 27.
