Each chapter, published monthly throughout the year, will be devoted to a particular decade. By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING By 1911 tensions were rising in Europe as governmentst alked peace and prepared for war. In America, women began to organize and seriously fight for universal suffrage. In New York City, a vast complex of subways was under construction. In Florida that October, George E. Sebring, a successful pottery manufacturer from Sebring, Ohio, bought 10,000 acres of wilderness around Lake Jackson. Sebring had a detailed plan for a dream community he called Lakeview Park. Before the first shovelful of dirt was turned, he knew how the streets would be laid out, how utilities would be provided, what kind of people he wanted to attract, and how he wanted them to live. Alife-long Methodist, Sebrings dream was to create a community based on God and family; high moral character and clean living. He used his own wealth to build and subsidize the town to insure its success. He donated free land to any group looking to build a church (or synagogue), and provided incentives to encourage retired missionaries and pastors to make Lakeview Park their home. Religion was an organizing factor George Sebring had a vision for his new city Photo courtesy of Sebring Historical Society The L.O. Doud family, among the early arrivals in 1911.

Rick Scott and the Florida Department o f Education (FDOE Highlands County ranked 52nd out of 67 counties, just above Polk, Hardee and DeSoto, despite a B grade ont he Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). The numerical ranking system is based on each schools total pointsd erived from FCATscores, a nd is part of Gov. Scottse mphasis on education. Districts are awarded one point for each percent of stu-d ents in the district who were enrolled in the fall year and scored on grade level or higher on the FCATand made annual learning gains,a ccording to the FDOE website. The FDOE claims the new system will help provide clear, transparent metrics to help parents of school-age children, educators, and taxpayers in Florida evaluate their school districts. Highlands County scored 498 points out of a possible 800, just one point below Baker County at 499, but far below first place St. Johns Countys 594. Madison County ranked last at 67 with an overall score of 411.

Instead, the council wants the Chamber of Commerce to work more closely with eachC RAdistrict and for the advisory boards to take a more active role. T he reason behind this, city council members said, was financial. It had nothingt o do with the CRAs current director, Wes Hoagland. In f act, councilors went out of their way to praise him. Mayor Sharon Schuler o pened the discussion by saying financial shortfalls, espec ially in the Southside where tax increments are minimal, meant the city cant afford (the cost of a director stands right now. She saidt he approximately $60,000 to $70,000 that would be saved b y eliminating the position could be used for redevelopment. C ouncilor Paul Miller, in support of doing away with t he position, said he was disappointed by the lack of progress. The jobs not being done, he said. People are just dragging their feet. Councilor Terry Heston a greed, We have to go in a new direction, he said. Wes was always responsive to me personally and to the boards, Councilor ParkeS utherland said. I dont want people to think he hasn t done a good job, its just that we can get a better bang for our buck. Whats being done by the CRAcan be done in-house. No way are we saying y ouve not done your job, he said, looking directly at H oagland, but the money could be better used. No date for ending the p osition was set Monday. Gerald Snell, chairman of t he Southside CRAadvisory board, has hope for the future. He sees the advisory committee as the ears of the community, but puts the responsibility for success inh is neighborshands. People have to get more i nvolved, he said, not 10 percent, 100 percent. ACRA is only as good as its commu-n ity. eve got some wonderf ul people on the board, but at most meetings hardly anyone is there. Avon Park does away with CRAdirector position News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Director Wes Hoagland at the Community Redevelopment Agencys monthly meeting Monday night. Later in the evening, his position was eliminated. News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY AP City Councilor Terry Heston listens to reasons the council would have to do a vote over due to a conflict of interest for Councilor Parke Sutherland. By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK At first, city councilor Parke Sutherland voted with his fellow councilors Monday night to appoint his wife, Maria Sutherland, as an alternate to the Highlands County Park and Recreation Advisory Committee. Immediately after the unanimous vote, however, he asked city attorney Gerald Buhr if he should have abstained instead. He said no money was at issue. Buhr replied he should abstain. This meant the need for awkward parliamentary procedure. Anew motion was put forward to rescind the first vote and a second vote taken to do that. Then a new motion to appoint Maria Sutherland to RPAC was seconded and a third vote taken. This time Councilor Sutherland abstained. Alittle later, however, just as Mayor Sharon Schuler was about to end of the meeting, Buhr leaned over for a whispered conference with her. Schuler told the audience Buhr wanted to do research before Maria Sutherlands appointment was settled. A fourth vote was taken, Parke Sutherland abstaining, rescinding the third vote. The matter will be on the agenda for the next regular meeting Feb. 13. AP city council waiting to appoint alternate to RPAC Maria Sutherland GAINESVILLE (APAnew study says citrus greening has cost Florida more than $3.6 billion over the last five years. The University of Florida study released Tuesday says the bacterial citrus disease has cost the state more than 6,600 jobs since 2006 by reducing orange juice production. The study is the first comprehensive assessment of the diseases economic impact on Florida. The disease was first detected in Florida in 2005. Greening causes fruit to drop prematurely and eventually kills citrus trees. The study compared actual harvests with projected harvests that would have taken place without greening. Floridas harvest for oranges used for juice during the past five seasons was 734 million boxes. The study claims it would have been an estimated 951 million boxes without greening.

C M Y K i n the community. The city pier, built in 1912, was a m ajor site for services until churches were built. There was an assembly hall onD inner Lake, known as Salvation Point, for church g roups. On the other hand, property deeds had a reversionary clause. Should liquor be made, sold or given away ont he property, the purchaser lost all claim to the land. W hen Sebring and his assistants and crew first arrived at Lake Jackson in1 911, they had to stay in Avon Park because it was a lready incorporated and a functioning town. Lakeview Park, however, was remote the closest railroad was in Wauchula and rough, a land of only sand and wilderness. Still a part of DeSoto C ounty, the government center was 75 miles away in Arcadia. In fact, according to Allen Altvater, only one buildingw as standing when George E. Sebring arrived a small w ay station for cow hunters and fishing parties on the shore of Lake Jackson. Itsb unks were built-in and made of wood. Moss was used for m attresses. It sat where the Elks Club is now, at the foot of Kenilworth Boulevard, andh ad a small corral to one side. T here were no streets, no infrastructure of any kind. Only trees, sand and insects including hoards of mosquitoes, gnats, chiggers, scor-p ions, spiders, ticks and fleas. Most pioneers were s till in tents. Kerosene lamps flickered. There was no doctor. There w ere no stores. The heat was debilitating. W alking in the sand loose, deep and loaded with fleas was exhausting and unpleasa nt. By concentrating development to the area around Circle Park, George E. Sebring made it easier to puti n streets, sidewalks and utilities. Among the first town improvements was laying sidewalk from the Circlet o the pier down Center Avenue, and to the train d epot down Commerce Street to Park Street and Lakeview Drive, where the retiredS ebring Utilities power station now sits. B y July 1912 there was rail service from Haines City (a day-long trip), electric lights,c ity water, a saw mill, the sidewalks, paved streets and t he city pier. Postal and telephone services were available and a bank was in operation. The Sebring Real Estate Company was created in1 912 to market the town more assertively and bring in n ew investment. Initially, Sebring himself provided utilities free ofc harge to residents, but that soon became too costly. T own leaders understood a government was needed to assess property, make a budge t and levy and collect taxes. Because the state legislature only met during odd numbered years then, the town was not incorporatedu ntil 1913. The first town election was held on July 3. Fifteen people voted. J. H. Lopp was elected as first mayor. T he first property assessment came in April of 1914. I n October of 1914 comm unity leaders created the Board of Trade, a precursor t o the Chamber of Commerce. It was in the now closed Chamber office on theC ircle. The building also served as a town hall, auditor ium, and Womans Club library. One of the first grocery a nd dry goods stores opened for business in 1912 when Thomas Whitehouse Sr. arrived with his wife and six children. Originally ones tory, a second floor was added in 1918 for a hotel. Except for a short interlude, the family ran the businesses until 1978, when largeg rocery chains put them out of business. T he former IGAstore s tands today, on the Circle at Center Avenue. The family l ived in a house directly behind the store. It is now the home for Friends of theL ibrary used bookstore. Aspurt of construction o ccurred during World War I, including the Buckeye Building on the Circle, the N ancessowee Hotel and the Salvation Army on Ridgewood Drive, and the Kenilworth Lodge on Lakeview Drive. T he Kenilworth was a major sign of progress, a deluxe hotel designed to draw the carriage trade. It followed in the steps ofG eorge E. Sebrings high-end hotel, The Arrowhead, built i n 1912. On the other side of town, the rail depot was still a dusty place, surrounded by cattle pens as area ranchers shipped their herds to marke t b y rail. Cowboys were as c ommon a sight in Sebring as w ell heeled visitors, or pastors. Breakthroughs in citrus growing at the turn of the century in particular graf ting orange onto lemon stock, creating a hardy tree able to g row in sand brought g rowers and orange groves. F rom the beginning, Sebring the town was built o n an economic foundation o f agriculture, tourism and r etirees. This article draws heavily from the writings of many local historians and community members, but most particularly from A llan Altvater and Theresa Stein, who did invaluable r esearch and wrote extensively about Sebring events and people. A special debt is owed the Sebring Historical Society and its archivist, Carole Goad, for the easy access to an excellentc ollection of materials and Goads generosity and guidance while sharing them.

C M Y K But this group just highlights the fact that the visiono f a better community is shared by many in Highlands County. Led by Charles Devlin, several former players and coaches have banded togeth-e r to form the Avon Park Champions Club, an organiz ation dedicated to fundraising and educating the public about community sports. T heir goal is to raise money to support sporting e vents and to congratulate those who bring honor to Avon Park. Many of those helping with the Champions Clubh ave participated in sports in the past, and their wish to g ive back so others have an easier time participating in sports of all kinds is some-t hing to be applauded. That vision of community s ervice is what prompted former Avon Park city council member Al Joe Hinson tob ring play closer to home by organizing neighborhood baseball. A llowing your child too far from home in this day and age is a scary thing. No longer do parents feel safew ith their children pedaling all over town, or crossing U.S. 27, to play baseball. Putting play back into neighborhood lots is important for both safety and peaceo f mind. It helps to bring families out of their houses a nd into the light, strengthening the mind and body. It is the same kind of spirit t hat Mitch and Sharon Tomlinson had when the D ixie League organized tournaments in Avon Park last year, rallying not only the citys political body to volunteer, but getting cooks andc lean-up crews as well. Not to mention carrying tables a nd working concessions in the Florida summer heat. It glows around Reggie K nighten and Richard Dick when they volunteer for the M ighty Mite and Peewee football teams. It feels good to bring home a second SuperB owl championship and celebrate that with the whole city. That sentiment echoes d own the streets of Avon Park from every parent and e very grandparent at a softball, volleyball or soccer game when they cheer on their child or buy a hot dog. The cycle continues when t he next generation sees the banners and the trophies and dreams of having their name in the case. Overall, it sets the tone for a city that cannot be squelched by small town politics or angry debate. Taxes and utility bills are forgotten for a brief time just after the national anthem ends.W orries hide under the bleachers from Friday night l ights and seek other shadows on a sunny Saturday morning. T he hard work by the volunteers and the players helps t o give the city as a whole a sense of humble pride and accomplishment and escape. Those mentioned certainly need recognition, althought hey are not searching for it, and the list of those helping w ith sports in Avon Park, just like Sebring and Lake Placid, is too long to include in anyn ewspaper. But just turn around and you will see s omeone mowing grass, passing a hot dog, picking up trash or planting somethingi n Highlands County. Its those efforts that make this county a good place to l ive and sends a message that rings clearer than any dollar spent on marketing or promotion. Without that hardw ork, there would be no organized play. No championship game. D evlin summed it up best a bout all who volunteer and play in this county are champions in all aspects. Any trophy they may bring home is just a bonus.

As the 2012 Legislative Session convenes inT allahassee, we will be met with two basic tasks, both of w hich are mandated by the state constitution: creating a budget for Fiscal Year 2012-2 013 and redistricting legislative and congressional d istrict boundaries. On top of the reductions we made last year, we facea nother year of reduced revenue estimates totaling wellover $1 billion. Balancing a b udget will require another round of reductions and i ncreasing efficiencies in state spending. These are tough but necessary exercises in order to hold the line on taxes and live within ourm eans. We learned in December that Floridas unemployment rate is again declining a great sign. But a second statistic reported last month indicated that Floridas quar-t erly personal income growth (third quarter of 2011 over t he preceding quarter) fell for the first time since the third quarter of 2009. At -0.1 percent growth, Florida ranks 46th nationally withr espect to state growth. The national average was +0.1 percent. This means that even as jobs are being created, wea re still not out of the dark. Floridians have less money in their pockets and increases in their tax burden would be unacceptable. In pursuit of a strong, diversified economy, we must continue to reduce the size and scope of government and unleash Floridianspotential. In the heat of debate, many offer sky-is-falling rhetoric about the impacts of budget reductions. I suspect we will hear the same in the coming weeks. Though we should not doubt the sincerity of those who raise concerns about budget cuts, we must examine their claims. To be sure, the sky has not fallen. Schools have not closed. In fact, Education W eek ranked Florida schools fifth in the nation in 2011. A nd at the same time the federal government recieved a first-ever credit rating downgrade last year, Floridas AAArating wasr eaffirmed. Has budget-cutting been a smooth process? Decisions like these do not come easy. But when we emerge from these hard economic times, we will have a state budgett hat is better geared to what Florida can afford and a f resh challenge to keep it that way. If smart budgeting can serve us in tough times, it ought to be a norm in goodt imes, too. Few elected officials like saying no. But saying yes too often is exactly why Washington, D.C., is in a tailspin thesed ays. Over the next two months, we intend to meet the needs of those unable to care for themselves and fund projected enrollment increases in our public schools. We will fund the burgeoning Medicaid system and continue to pursue efficiencies that stretch the dollars we have. Above all, we will meet our constitutional mandate and uphold our responsibility to the Florida taxpayer.

The play, The Diary of Anne Frank, is currently running at the Highlands Little Theatre (HLT) and is one of these stories set in one of these times. World War II and the systematic elimination of the Jewish people is the setting for this play. It is the re-enactment of the diary left by a young girl who lived in hiding for over two years with seven other people. The cast and the director have been able to achieve the fear that these people must have felt. They lived in fear every minute they lived in hiding in the small loft. The play shares with the audience many of the challenges that eight people experience living in such cramped quarters, in these conditions for this length of time. Added to the challenge are the three teenagers in the loft. All of the good and bad traits that we think of teenagers are expressed in the everyday living while in hiding. Two of the teenagers begin to date each other, which as well complicates the relationship of the families. In order to not be found there had to be silence during the day when there were workers in the building below them. As difficult as the topic is, the cast, of The Diary of Anne Frank, needs to be commended for an excellent job. I saw the show on Friday night and the audience was so into the show that at the end everyone sat in silence. I think everyone was waiting for more. I have seen many performances at HLTand this does not happen often. Do not miss this show. It will close on Sunday, Jan. 29. Olivia Scott Avon Park BouquetsForever grateful of Fourever PawsEditor: I took my little 18-year-old poodle, Missy, in for her grooming appointment at Fourever Paws Grooming and explained to Fran, the owner, that Missy had been pretty sick. We discussed what she had been suffering from and how she was recovering. Fran then advised me she didnt want to put Missy through the trauma of grooming and asked me what my concerns were. I informed her I was concerned about Missys ears; if they are not kept clean she gets ear infections. Fran asked me to have a seat while she checked Missys ears and then she would send her home with me. Fran cleaned Missys ears and shaved her little face and then put her back in my arms. When I asked her what I owed she replied, Athank you. I told her I had to show my appreciation to which she replied, Then a hug will do. This woman had no way of knowing that January is a difficult month for me. I got way more out of that hug than she did. Fourever Paws Grooming was voted Best Groomer in a recent newspaper poll and this is just one of the reasons that award is deserved. I will be forever grateful to Fourever Paws Grooming. Patsy Stamm Lake Placid A Highlands County treasureEditor: Time is flying by and I just couldnt let January pass without sending a sincere Thank you to Choir Director David Rinald for his fantastic Messiah performance with his outstanding choir. After many weeks of hard work and preparation, Handels Messiah was presented on Dec. 4 at St. James Catholic Church to our community as a holiday treat. With arias by Katherine Smith, Kimberly Milton, Adam Davidson and Daniel Burke and with accompanying organist Richard Wedig, it was absolutely glorious. I thought wings were sure to unfold. The church overflowed with a marvelous audience. David and your Messiah Society Choir, you are surely a Highlands County treasure an absolute treasure. Stay well, David; we look forward to your return next year. Thank you so much. Fran Rolston Lake Placid

B y GENARO C. ARMAS APSports WriterS TATE COLLEGE, Pa. Penn State football players past and present made a s omber pilgrimage to the campus spiritual center Tuesday for Joe Paterno, attending a viewing for the coach whoh elped shape the university for more than a half century. The players wore dark suits and filed o ut of three blue Penn State buses the same buses that once carried Paterno a nd the team to games at Beaver Stadium on fall Saturdays. Son Scott Paterno was seen coming in and out of the center. One current and one former team m ember will stand guard over the closed casket for the duration of the public viewing, athletic department spokesman Jeff Nelson said. He left us too early and I think about the impact he could have made once he retired from coaching, Nelson said. The 85-year-old Paterno, the winn ingest coach in major college football, died Sunday. His lung cancer was disc losed in November, days after he was fired in the aftermath of the child sexabuse charges against former assistantJ erry Sandusky. Paternos family gathered earlier Tuesday for a private viewing, Nelson s aid. The family was joined by current players and new Penn State coach Bill O Brien, followed by former players. Aline of ex-players stretched around the corner and down the block. This marked the start of three days of public events as the Penn State commu-n ity in State College and beyond said goodbye to the man who led the Nittany Lions to 409 wins over 46 years. Big crowds were expected to show their love for Paterno, starting with a 10-hour public viewing that begins in early afternoon at Pasquerilla Spiritual Center. There is another public viewingW ednesday, and after that Paternos family will hold a private funeral and p rocession through State College. On Thursday, the schools basketball arena will be the site of a public servicec alled AMemorial for Joe. Penn State was expecting a huge demand for seats and set a two-per-person limit on ticke ts. Former players began arriving shortly a fter members of Paternos last team filed in. Some players hugged and OBrien shook hands at the curb outside the center. By midmorning, with two busloads of players still paying respects,d ozens more mourners showed up, lined up along the sidewalk. With crowds spilling onto the curb, traffic slowed. Afew people stared out windows from a classroom building across street. A long, somber farewell begins for Penn States Paterno Associated PressWASHINGTON Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney paida bout $3 million in federal income taxes in 2010, having earned more than seven times that $21.7 million from his investments andm aking him among the wealthiest of American taxpayers. At the same time, Romney gave nearly $3 million to charity about half of that amount to theM ormon Church which helped lower his effective t ax rate to a modest 14 percent, according to records his campaign released earlyT uesday. For 2011, hell pay about $ 3.2 million with an effective tax rate of about 15.4 percent, the campaign said. Those returns havent yet been filed yet with theI nternal Revenue Service. The former Massachusetts g overnor had been under pressure in recent weeks to release his tax returns, hisG OPopponents casting him as a wealthy businessman w ho slashed jobs in the private sector. Rival Newt Gingrich made public hisr eturns on Saturday, showing he paid almost $1 million in income taxes a tax r ate of about 31 percent. Romneys campaign conf irmed the details of his tax information after several news organizations saw a preview of the documents. oull see my income, h ow much taxes Ive paid, how much Ive paid to charity, Romney said during Monday nights debate in Tampa. I pay all the taxes that are legally required and not a dollar more. I dont think you want someone as the candidate for president who pays more taxes than heo wes. Romneys 2010 returns show the candidate is among the top 1 percent of taxpayers. The returns showeda bout $4.5 million in itemized deductions, including $1.5 million to the Church of Jesus Christ of LatterDay Saints. Before the tax records w ere released, Romneys old investments in two controv ersial government-backed housing lenders stirred up new questions at the samet ime his campaign targeted Gingrich for his work for F reddie Mac. Gingrich earned $1.6 million in consulting fees from Freddie Mac even though Romney has as much as$ 500,000 invested in the U.S.-backed lender and its s ister entity, Fannie Mae. The dimensions and the sources of Romneys wealth,w hich he has estimated to be as much as $250 million, h ave become pivotal issues in the roiling GOPprimary campaign. For months,R omney dismissed calls to release his personal income tax records. But after mounti ng criticism from his rivals and others, coupled with his s tinging weekend loss to Gingrich in the South Carolina primary, Romney agreed to release his 2010 return and 2011 estimate. R omney already has acknowledged that his current tax rate is about 15 percent, a level far lower than standard rates for highincome earners. Romney paid $3M in federal income tax in 2010

Hes Hispanic,C atholic and the son of Cuban immigrants. Hes a tea party favorite, a GOPstar and, many say, the future of the Republican Party. Sen. Marco Rubios endorsement w ould be a big get for any of the presidential contenders ahead of the Jan. 31 Florida primary if only he were the giving kind. The freshman senator, who has t ies to GOPpresidential front-runners Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich, has pledged to stay neutral as Republicans pick a challenger to President Barack Obama. But Rubios refusal to pick sidesh asnt squelched intense speculation about whether Rubio might m ake a surprise endorsement and whether hell end up as the vice presidential nominee. R ubio publicly insists that hes not interested in either, saying r ecently that many of those running have been helpful to him and that hes not inclined to endorse anyone in the primary. On Monday, while he was racing to the Senate for av ote, he gave two answers to the endorsement question: a subtle no followed by a more emphatic Aides to Romney and Gingrich s ay neither candidate has asked Rubio for his endorsement out of r espect for the senators decision to stay out of the race. Even so, their backers are privately hoping Rubioc hanges his mind, given how wide open the race is only a week before Floridas Republicans weigh in on w hat has been a volatile nomination fight. R ubio, 40, is one of Floridas most popular leaders, particularly among Republicans. AQuinnipiac University poll released Jan. 10 found that nearly 80 percent ofR epublicans and nearly half of independents approved of the job he is doing. Only a quarter of Democrats liked his job performance. Anative of Miami, the former s tate legislator was the youngest person and first Hispanic to become s peaker of the Florida House in 2007. He vaulted onto the national stage in 2010 when he latched onto the fledging tea party movement to challenge then-Gov. Charlie Crist, ac entrist and the GOPestablishments choice, in the Republican p rimary for an open Senate seat. Rubios stock rose quickly, forcing Crist to flee the GOPand run as ani ndependent. In the end, Rubio was the GOPnominee and he went on t o win in the general election. Rubio has connections to both front-runners. H e and Gingrich have known each other for years. The freshman senator brought a photo of the form er House speaker to his Washington office. And Gingrich w rote the forward to Rubios book, Innovative Ideas for Floridas Future. Rubio wrote it before taking office as Florida House speaker. Gingrich has called the book aw ork of genius. Rubios personal friend and political ally, fellow CubanAmerican U.S. Rep. David Rivera, is backing Gingrich. Rubios former Senate campaign chief Jose M allea is running Gingrichs Florida campaign. Rubio and G ingrich both will address the Hispanic Leadership Networks conference in Miami on Friday. Romney, for his part, endorsed Rubio over Crist in the 2010 GOPS enate primary, calling him an American hero and adding: He r epresents what is good and so great about this land of ours. Nearly half a dozen Rubio s taffers worked for the former Massachusetts governors 2008 p residential campaign, including the senators chief of staff. Both Romney and Gingrich have c alled Rubio an obvious choice for a vice-presidential short-list. He checks a lot of boxes. He c omes from Florida, and he provides balance, said former Florida S en. Mel Martinez, a Romney backer. I cant conceive of anyone who in a list of five or six wouldnt have Rubio there. Bill McCollum, co-chair of G ingrichs Florida campaign, said Rubio would be among Gingrichs top picks for vice president if and when the time occurs. Its not just that hes from Florida, a critical general-election s wing state, that has Republicans speculating about his political f uture. His potential appeal to Hispanic independents could be a huge draw for the eventual GOPnominee. Rubio is immensely popular amongC uban exiles, one the GOPs most reliable and influential voting blocs i n this state. And his popularity with the tea party could help inject the ticket with a dose of excite-m ent, and help ensure these activists turn out in November to s upport the nominee. He comes across as genuine and thats why people like him, saidJ ennifer Korn, executive director of the center-right Hispanic Leadership Network. I ndeed, Rubio, who teaches political science at Florida I nternational University in his spare time, is a natural on the campaign trail, equally comfortable giving passionate speeches about his parentssacrifices as he is discussingh ow to restructure Social Security. He also has a captivating life story that he holds up as an example of the American Dream. Then theres Rubios strong record as a conservative. He gave a wildly lauded speech on behalf of a free market and compassionate conservatism last summer at the Ronald Reagan Libraryi n California. He opposed Obamas nomination of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, a Puerto Rican-American and the first Hispanic to be named to the court.H e recently blocked another Puerto Rican-Americans nomination for ambassador to El Salvador. While conservatives generally applaud both moves, theyre not likely top lay well with central Floridas fast-growing Puerto Rican community, a major swing vote in the state. Meanwhile, his support among Hispanics is hardly rock solidn ationwide. Rubio got into a public spat with Univision over how the N o. 1 Spanish-language network handled a story detailing a decadesold drug conviction of Rubiosb rother-in-law. He was forced to backpedal last year when it was r evealed that his parents did not flee Fidel Castros communist government as he had claimed. They were economic immigrants who arrived in the U.S. several yearsb efore the Cuban Revolution though they quickly came to o ppose Castro and identify with the exile community. Rubio also opposes comprehens ive immigration reform and supports Arizonas tough new law targ eting illegal immigration, putting him in stark contrast with the vast majority of the countrys Latinov oters. Even though hes not endorsing in the presidential race, Rubio is h aving at least some effect on it. Mindful of angering Rubio, nearl y all of the GOPcandidates declined to participate in a proposed Univision presidential debate last year. This week, Gingrich, Romney and Santorum agreed top articipate in a Meet the Candidates forum co-hosted by the network. Mallea said Gingrich agreed to participate only after getting Rubios OK. The big get in Florida Rubio isnt giving MCT Sen. Marco Rubio hasnt endorsed a candidate for the Republican presidential primary.

C M Y K A ssociated PressTALLAHASSEE With i ts main sponsor saying hes confident of millions of dollars in savings every year, a Senate committee Monday cleared two bills allowing for the privatization of prisons in South Florida. The rules committee approved the bills (SB 2036 and SB 2038) on party-line votes after more than three hours of debate and public comment. Dozens of people spoke against the bills, telling senators privatization would put state employees out of work and will reduce public safety. Committee vice-chair JD Alexander, careful to use the word competition instead of privatization, said he expects $22-45 million a year in savings. From my standpoint, competition makes things improve, the Lake Wales Republican said, later adding, We have to balance the greater good. That came as cold comfort to Amanda Abers. She said she moved from Minnesota a year ago to work as a corrections officer at Vero Beachs Indian River Correctional Institution. That facility is slated for closure. Im going to have to move out of the state to survive, she told the committee. I want you guys to think about that. Youre putting me out on the street along with close to 200 other people, plus their spouses, their kids. Last year, the Legislature passed a South Florida prison-privatization plan but the state was sued by the Florida Police Benevolent Association, the union that formerly represented corrections officers. The Teamstersn ow represent those employees. Circuit Judge Jackie Fulford of Tallahassee eventually ruled that the states plan is unconstitutional because it was approved as part of the annual budget and not as a stand-alone law. Attorney General Pam Bondi is appealing Fulfords decision. Separately, the Department of Corrections announced this month that it was shutting down seven other state prisons and four work camps, all of which employ nearly 1,300 people, because of a decreasing prison population. Most of those opposed to the bills were corrections officers or their representatives. T hey brought up what Sen. Don Gaetz later derided as a parade of horribles: Private prison guards dont have to be trained and certified like state corrections officers; they wont assist when a prisoner escapes; and youthful offenders will be mixed with adults and wont get the education they need. Corrections officers like Sgt. Glynn Reeder, who said hes worked at Florida State Prison for years and 10 months, suggested to senators that privatization was the wrong fix to the states budget ills. How many people are you willing to put on unemployment? he said.

Mike Bennett has been complaining for the last six yearst hat taxpayers shouldnt have to help professional sports teams pay f or new stadiums. The Bradenton Republican has repeatedly tried and failed tog et the Florida Legislature to pass a bill that would require voter a pproval before taxpayer money could be used to help pay for stadiums or help pro teams. L ast summer, however, Bennett came up with a new angle. He discovered that back in the l ate s state lawmakers included a provision into state law that says t hat sports stadiums and arenas are supposed to be utilized by local governments for homeless shelters. The provision was reportedly put into place by the late Sen. JackG ordon, a Miami Beach Democrat. Bennett says that hasnt happened. So he wants the stadiums and arenas and the sports teams that use them to return as much as nearly $275 million they have received from the state over the l ast two decades. The provision would impact pro teams like the O rlando Magic, Tampa Bay Rays, Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars, Florida Panthers, and theT ampa Bay Buccaneers. e have spent over $300 mill ion supporting teams that can afford to pay a guy $7, $8, $10 million a year to throw a baseball 90f eet, I think that they can pay for their own stadium, Bennett said. ASenate panel on Monday b acked Bennett when it voted unanimously in favor of his bill w hich would require the teams to refund the state all the money they have received by the end of the year if they cant prove the stadium has been used as a homeless shel-t er. Bennett also added another twist: He included on Monday a provision being pushed by fellow Republican Sen. Mike Fasano that would fine any sports franchise that receives public support and a llows its games to be blacked out on local television. The $125,000 f ine would then be used to purchase tickets for foster children and members of the military sot hey could attend games. The National Football League is t he only professional league that requires blackouts. The NFLpolicy applies to stations within a 75-miler adius of where the game is played if all tickets are not sold 72 hours in advance of kickoff. NFLoffic ials have defended the policy as a way to help NFLteams sell tickets. I s unclear how far the bill will move this session since professional teams have been successful in past years opposing legislation that would take away or end the statest ax subsidy program. Florida pays up to $2 million a year to stadiums and arenas that have deals with pro sports franchises. There is also a similar program that offers up to $500,000 to spring training facilit ies. The argument behind the tax subsidies is that it is an economic development incentive meant to entice sports franchises to lock inl ong-term deals to stay in one location. R on Book, a lobbyist who represents Sun Life Stadium, the home to the Dolphins, contends thatB ennetts bill would not apply to many South Florida sports teams b ecause counties there have homeless plans in place and a dedicated source of funding. B ennett, however, said that pro teams need to realize that it is difficult for state lawmakers to vote t o cut state funding for education and health care at the same time it i s paying millions to professional sports teams.

C M Y K SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, January 25, 2012 N ASCAR This Week3B Signs of Spring News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Chad Marley had this foul pop, ever so briefly, before it slipped out of his mitt during Saturdays SFCC Alumni Game. The Panthers welcomed back former players for the event, a contest against the 2012 South Florida roster, to break in the upcoming season, which begins Friday at home against Daytona State College. Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID If it is true that one draws strength in numbers during down times, then Saturdays initial offering of the Alex Barajas Foundation 5K turned out to be a celebratory rememberance. An eye-popping 209 runners finsished the race on a pleasant and sunny Saturday morning, helping immensely in the foundations purpose of raising money for brain cancer research as well as for scholarships in Alexs name. Florida Gator great, Chris Doering, who had met Alex while he was at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, and family joined in the tribute to the courage that Alex displayed in his battle with cancer. First annual Barajas 5K draws a massive field News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Frankie Gomez makes a leaping save of a DeSoto shot on goal in Mondays district tournament win for Lake Placid. By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Tensions run high this time of year. After all, come district tournament time, each match out on the pitch could well bet he last of the season. And though the tension and emotions got the better of them at times, Lake Placid w ould ride a stingy defense to a 2-1 win in the opening r ound of the District 10-2A t ournament over DeSoto. This was a very even match-up, head coach James Ashley said. Its like that throughout our district, so were going to have games like this. The team that doesnt lose their focus, that doesnt let their emotions get the best of them, will be the team that comes out with the win. Though it didnt seem any added emotion would be necessary early on, as the Dragons were controlling the action and continually on the attack. Alittle more than five minutes in, Julian Martinez got the rebound of a deflected Vicente Barajas shot and booted it into the net for a 10 Lake Placid lead. From there, the defense held and in the 24th minute, it seemed the lead would be added to as Barajas advanced the ball into the box and tried to maneuver for a shot. B ut the Bulldog defense caused one misfire and another attempt went high and caromed off the crossbar. T hen, less than five minutes later, a DeSoto forward g ot past the Dragon defense a nd slipped one past the keeper to knot the score. Thats when the intensity picked up a bit, with a Dragon player getting a yellow card and the Bulldogs getting a penalty kick in the 33rd minute though it went wide right Moments later, a brief scuffle lead to a player from each side being sat down for the remainder of the half, which ended with the score still tied 1-1. But it was just a few minutes into the second half when Lake Placid benefited from the intensity, being awarded a penalty kick at 36:02.

B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comS EBRING Another athletic showcase came to townt his past weekend, and as is the case with the likes of the Harder Hall Invitational and the FACAAll-Star events, the 18th Annual Spiegel Memorial Wrestling Invitational brought in staggering numbers. Hundreds of wrestlers, representing 22 schools from throughout the state were on hand, along with an untold number of fans, friends, parents and supporters. And, as one of the final t une-ups before the trek toward the state finals begins, many of the schools and individual names at the Spiegel will assuredly be s een again in a few weeks in Lakeland. One such wrestler, Avon Parks Johnny Baldridge, w orked through a field he will likely see again soon. s in a very tough bracket here, assistant coach and former Red Devil state m edalist Omar Torres said. Hell see a lot of these guys at Regionals and the top finishers there will likely be thet op ones at state. That would be the 120pound bracket where Baldridge placed third afterl osing a close decision to eventual winner Sean Ware of Lemon Bay. Spiegel packs the house See SPIEGEL, Page 4B By RONALD BLUM A ssociated PressNEWYORK Flanked by his wife and children, with five World Series trophies sitting on a table to his right, Jorge Posada announced hisr etirement. The five-time All-Star catcher is ending his major league career after 17 seas ons, all with the New York Yankees. T he 40-year-old Posada f inishes with a .273 career batting average, 275 home runs and 1,065 RBIs. Shifted to designated hitter last year, his playing time diminished. Posada joins Bernie Williams and Andy Pettitte in retirement, leaving only 37year-old Derek Jeter and 42year-old Mariano Rivera from the core group that led the Yankees to four World Series titles in five years from 1996-2000. With Rivera and CC Sabathia looking on, Posada began by quoting Joe DiMaggio: I want to thank the good Lord for making me a Yankee. I could never wear another uniform, he said. I will forever be a Yankee. Posadas voice broke up, especially when he spoke in Spanish. He thanked his teammates, rubbing his chin three times and wiping his eyes. Hopefully you wont miss me that much, he said. Diana Munson, wife of the late Yankees catcher Thurman Munson, spoke about how Posada helped revive her interest in baseball, which had disappeared after her husbands death. I think he and Thurman definitely would have been best buds, she said. After 17 seasons and 5 titles, Posada retires Associated PressPORTLAND, Ore. Oregon head coach Chip Kelly announced Monday that hell remain with the Ducks though he says he was flattered by the interest shown in him by the NFLs Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Kelly says in a statement that he enjoyed meeting with the organization, including general manager Mark Dominik, but says that after numerous discussions he decided he had unfinished business at Oregon.

Paul Pierce and former Magic forward Brandon Bass each scored 19 points to carry the injury-riddled Celtics to an 87-56 win over Orlando on Monday night. The Magic set franchise l ows for points and field goals (16 Defensively that was as good as you can get, Rivers said after his team matched a club record for fewest points allowed in the shot-clock era, also done last season against Milwaukee. Boston was minus starters Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo and three bench players, drastically reducing its roster. Bass and Pierce carried the offense and Boston got some strong play from a cast of down-the-bench reserves. The Celtics snapped a streak of six straight losses against teams with winning records. Pierce is looking for it to shake Boston out of its early season woes. Hopefully itll funnel o ver to the guys that were out, said Pierce, who followed a 34-point effort in a win at Washington on S unday. Theres no more excuses. A very Bradley and Sasha P avlovic started in the backcourt for Boston and attempted to pressure Orlandos guards early, helping the Celtics pick up the pressure defensively. (ItAvery Rivers said. The ball pressure and then it led to everyone. Theyre a great shooting team. ... Everything had to be precise and it was. Dwight Howard led the Magic with 18 points and 14 rebounds. He needs eight points to surpass Nick Anderson as the Magics career scoring leader. Howard was 0-for-6 from the floor and just 4-for-10 from the free throw line in the second half. They came out and absolutely dominated us with their energy and defensive intensity, Magic coach Stan Van Gundy said. Kevin Garnett added 14 points and 10 rebounds for Boston. The Celtics led by 10 at the half, turned up the pressure defensively and scored 16 of t he first 21 points in the second half to pull ahead 62-41. Pierce had seven points in the run and set up Marquis Daniels for a layup that gave Boston its 21-point edge with 2:31 remaining in the quarter. The Celtics held Orlando to one field goal in the opening 9:52 of the third and just two for the quarter both 3pointers. The Magic hit 2-of-11 shots and had nine turnovers. It was a tough game. They pressured us a lot, Howards aid. We rushed shots. It just wasnt a good night overall for us. Howard, who missed 5-of8 free throws in the third and went 0-fo-5 from the field, flung the ball in frustration at the end of the quarter, nailing the backboard from his owne nd of the floor as the horn sounded with Boston holdinga 69-46 lead. Boston didnt let up in the f ourth until Pierce and Garnett came out with just o ver five minutes to play. The Magic had a seasonh igh 25 turnovers, 20 in the second half, and a seasonlow points. Jermaine ONeal and Howard were involved in a brief shoving match in the lane and both were given technicals midway into the third quarter. ONeal got the initial foul on the play with a hard shove. The Celtics led 36-36 at halftime, with Pierce and Bass each scoring 13 points. The Celtics acquired Bass in a sign-and-trade deal wi th Orlando that sent Glen Big Baby Davis to the Magic. Boston forwards Micka el Pietrus (shoulder Wilcox (left calf K eyon Dooling (right knee were also out though not missed on this night. Boston scored nine straight points late in the second q uarter, pulling to a 43-33 lead on Pierces 3 from the left wing with 45 seconds left. Theres no way KG s hould be beating me up and d own the floor, Howard said, before joking about the age difference. There was a couple plays where he beat me up and down the floor. Theres no way. Hes 40 and Im 25. I just cant allow that to happen. I have to step up and be the leader for this team. N OTES: Orlandos previous season-low was 78 p oints. The franchise-low was 57, set Dec. 4, 1996 against Cleveland. ... The Celtics welcomed back Davis during a break in the opening quarter with highlights and Thank You Big Baby on the jumbotron. He got a standing ovation from the crowd, walked onto the court and pumped his fist. ... Van Gundy said before the game that hes amused how people are talking about Bostons slow start this season. People see the record and panic, he said. People talk about The Celtics are too old and cant playIm not buying it. What are they going to say when they start winning, they got younger? ... Forward Jeff Green, who had surgery Jan. 9 to repair an aeortic aneurysm, visited Bostons locker room before the game and in the morning. It was awesome, Boston coach Doc Rivers said. Im amazed. Two weeks and hes walking around. We were sarcastic this morning, saying s walking around and you guys cant play Pierce, Bass carry Celtics over Magic, 87-56 Associated PressCHICAGO Ozzie Guillen left the White Sox four months ago, and theyre still talking about him in Chicago. White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf defended his former manager Monday, saying Guillen had his blessing to leave the team before the season was over. Guillen was released from his contract with two games left and became the Marlins manager two days later. Ozzie told me he wanted to finish out the year, the Marlins really wanted him in Miami for the conclusion of the season, and I told him that he had no choice but to go given the excitement surrounding the opening of their new stadium and the unveiling of their new uniforms, Reinsdorf said in a statement. Ozzie needed to be in Miami at the end of the season for the Marlins. Reinsdorfs statement came after White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy questioned whether Guillen quit on the team during an interview on WSCR-AM 670 on Jan. 14. Guillen then took to his Twitter account Friday and promised to tell the tru th about his departure from Chicago. At the end of the da y, Ozzie didnt finish the season with us the last few games, Peavy said. So I dont know who quit on who. But it is what it is and were all looking forward to 2012. Peavy also said during t he interview that he had no hard feelings toward Guillen, and posted on his Twitter account Friday that he loved his former manager and had all the respect in the world for him and his family e will always be grateful for the 21 seasons Ozzie spent in a White Sox uniform as a player and coach, especially his role in helping us win the 2005 World Series championship, Reinsdorf said. We wish him nothing but the best. Reinsdorf says Guillen had his blessing to leave the most of it, converting the score for a 2-1 Dragon lead. It looked like it would be added to less than three minutes later, but Osvaldo Ordunas attempted headed sailed just a bit too high. But then DeSoto started picking up the pace and attacking the Lake Placid zone with a bit more fervor. While Frankie Gomez had manned the goal well in the first half, Rafael Ramos was t he second half keeper and continued to fend off Bulldog shot attempts. Last year we had one goalie, but he was more of a goalie in training, Ashley said. This year weve got a few guys who can do the job. Im a former goalie myself and I know that there are different philosophies. I figure, if they each give us a chance to win, well give each a chance. Though it looked as though Ramos may have missed a chance when a DeSoto wing got free and shot one into the net with 10:38 left but the score was waved off due to an offsides. The Dogs would have more chances, with numerous direct kicks, but Ramosa nd the Dragon defense were up to the challenge each time. The offense, too, would h ave opportunities, but that insurance goal proved hard to come by. But as the time ticked away, it became more a matter of just controlling the clock and keeping the Bulldogs at bay. One more direct kick would come DeSotos way in the waning moments, but it went high and soon after, the final whistle blew toc ommemorate the Lake Placid win. That was just a great effort, a great game, A shley said. The second half, especially, was probably the best team effort defensively weve had all season. That first win in districts is the toughest one to get, but weve been playing good soccer. We just have to keep our focus. The win moved the Dragons into the tournament semifinals against Frostproof Tuesday night. D uring the regular season, just like with DeSoto, Lake Placid split the series, winning a 4-2 contest and d ropping a 3-2 match.

They wouldnt be caught dead near tourist sites and couldnt care less if a celebrity walked by.T heyre snobby about what they read, even snobbier about what they eat, stick to their own borough, and call the most minuscule bedrooms huge. A nd theres something else: Some dont take kindly to being reduced to a cultural stereotype. Thats what Eliot and Ilana Glazer, brother-sister bloggers,c omics and native New Yorkers, have discovered since their video, Stuff New Yorkers Say (no, thew ord isnt really Stuff) has gone viral in the last couple days. Turns out, one of the things New Yorkersl ike to say is: We dont say THAT! But theres been lots of positive feedback, too, and all the attentionh as stunned the Glazers, who posted the video on Wednesday night, hoping for some buzz but not expecting well over a million YouTube views (about 1.3 million as of late Friday Its really bonkers, Eliot Glazer, 28, said in a telephone interview. The video, inspired by a current Internet meme on what all sorts ofg roups of people say, is simple enough. In it, the Glazers and friends converse the way young New Yorkers would (or wouldnt, depending on whom you ask.)T here are a few distinct themes. Impatience: Where is the train? Where is the TRAIN? (There haveb een comments posted that while people in New York think this, they dont actually stand on the platforms aying it.) Exclusivity: Nobody knows a bout this place. Culinary exclusivity: All I had today was a bagel. Or Ah, Momofuku! a reference to the group of restaurants headed by hipy oung chef David Chang. Culinary snobbery: Ah, Magnolia! a reference to the cup-c akes made famous by Sex and the City followed by a sour face, because the cupcakes arent veryh ip. Celebrity fatigue: Sarah Jessica Parker! Oh, who cares. Disdain for tourists: Who goes t o the Statue of Liberty? Who goes to the Empire State Building? Move! Move! (walking down the street behind slowpokes.) I hate tourists! T hat last theme, Glazer explains, is not to be taken literally. New Yorkers are actually very kind to tourists, he says. Another thing people are taking t oo literally, according to Glazer: The derisive comments about boroughs other than Manhattan, as in I dont go to Queens, and I dont do Brooklyn. I n fact, Glazer was born in Queens, grew up on Long Island, and now lives in Brooklyn, as doesh is sister a writer and comic whose Web series, Broad City, is in development for the FX network. E specially funny, Glazer says, is unwarranted speculation online that the Glazers arent even from New York. But he says he doesnt readc omments on YouTube: Its just a pool of negativity This is satire, he says. We intended it to be a satire of what it means to be young and semi-spoiledi n New York. The video was shot and edited in about two weeks. I was worried we were past the expiration date of the meme, Glazer says. He and his sis-t er posted it to their Facebook accounts, and within two hours it was insane the comments, the sharing, he says. It was mindblowing how quickly it took off. W hats clear from the video is that its creators love the city, despite its hardships. L ove-hate relationship with New York: I love it here. I hate it here. I love it here. Viral video spoofs the, er, stuff New Yorkers say This is satire. We intended it to be a satire of what it means to be young and semispoiled in New York.ELIOTGLAZER video creator

C M Y K Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID The g uest speaker for this week was Gary Gunter, assistant g overnor forDistrict One and the next Lieutenant Governor for 6890 under Tom Wade.G ary and his wife Joyce own two insurance companies in N ew Tampa and Wesley Chapel. The Gunters live in northeast New Tampa and theirc lub started back in 1995. There are now three clubs in that area. G ary was a part of a military family, as his father served our c ountry andwas moved from city to city. The family landed in Tampa in 1972 ,where Gary went to college at the University of Florida. G ary was always a spur-ofthe-moment adventurer and got his sister in hot water when she was left to watch him. His sister was 11 and Gary was 3. He decided he wanted to dive off a high dive board and did sob efore his sister could stop him. Luckily he was not hurt a nd lived to do more daring things in life. Gary worked for Bill Gunter, state insurance commissioner at the time (no rela-t ion) for seven years after graduating from college. He then met a real estate agent who asked him to go to a Rotary meeting, and after a fewm eetings saw the good that they did in the community and the world, so Gary joined in 2005. He was district secretary in 2007, and co-chaired the district conference in 2008 where 400 people showed up to support his Happy Dollar club. Gary was awarded the Rotarian of the Year for his efforts that year. Not all was good for Gary, as he went through a divorce, but learned he had supportf rom his fellow Rotarians. Things began looking up w hen he went on a Rotary trip to Costa Rica where he met his wife Joyce. T he Temple Terrace clubwas in Costa Rica for a Donkey Fund.

Producer Thomas Langmann received the award handed out at the Beverly Hilton by theP roducers Guild of A merica, as The Artist beat out George Clooneys family drama and another Oscar favorite, The Descendants. The Artist won best musical or comedy at Sundays Golden Globes and The Descendants won best drama along witha best actor nod for C looney, making the movies likely rivals for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. The other nominees in t he movie category were ar Horse, The Help, Bridesmaids, Hugo, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball and another Clooney movie, The Ides of March. Along with honors from other Hollywood professional groups such as actors, directors and writers guilds, the producer prizes have become part of the preseason sorting out contenders for the Oscars, whose nominations come out Jan. 24. HBOs saga of mobsters in Prohibition-era Atlantic City Boardwalk Empire won the producersaward for television drama series, keeping AMCs Mad Men from winning its fourth straight PGAAward. A team of seven produ ce rs including Martin Scorcese received the a ward for Boardwalk E mpire, which also beat o ut Showtimes Dexter CBSs The Good Wife and another HBO series, Game of Thrones.

Jacksons Hobbit doubles film speed to 48 framesPARK CITY, Utah Peter Jackson is making his hobbits and dwarves march double-time in his The Lord of the Rings prequel, which hes shooting in a faster film speed than the Hollywood standard. Jackson hopes the 48frames-a-second rate twice the 24 frames that has been the custom since the 1920s will help bring about a gradual transition to faster speeds that can bring more life-like images and action to the screen. Digital cameras allow for shooting at 48 frames or faster, reducing the flickery, blurry effect known as strobing that can come with 24-frame filming.

C M Y K By MESFIN FEKADU A ssociated PressN EWYORK Since its beginnings in the 1970s, rap music has transformed from an underground, street-based sound to a definitive part ofp op culture, transcending race and becoming one of the strongest and most prolific voices of todays generation. But at the GrammyA wards, rap has had a longlasting losing streak in the top categories. The hip-hop sound first recognized at the 1989 Grammys has garneredn umerous prestigious nominations over the years, and f or 10 of the last 14 years, rap acts have either led or tied for most Grammy nomi-n ations. But rarely will a hiphop act win one of the s hows top four honors album, song and record of the year, along with best new artist. Instead, rap acts tend to win rap awards. 5 0 Cent, who won his first and only Grammy two years a go, believes Grammy voters are out-of-touch and need a fresh outlook on whats goingo n in contemporary music. I think that the board is a l ot older and theyre conservative, so some of the content in the music is offensiveo n some level, said 50 Cent, who famously interrupted Evanescences best new artist s peech by walking onstage when he lost to the rock g roup in 2004. Theres a lot of people that dont accept that hip-hop culture is now pop culture. This year, hip-hop leads t he Grammys in nominations again, with Kanye West earning seven; its his third year as the shows top-nominated act, and his fourth overall (he tied Mariah Carey and John Legend for most nominationsa t the 2006 Grammys). While his song All of the Lights is up for song of the year, his c ritically revered fifth album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, didnt score ana lbum of the year nomination, a shock to many. Even J immy Jam the chair emeritus of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences was surprised by Wests snub. I think hes one of the genius artists, and Im saying t his as a person whos worked with Michael Jackson and Prince, so I dont throwt hat word around lightly Jam said. So, yes, I was surp rised. Wests album with Jay-Z, atch the Throne, was also l eft out of the top album category; both CDs are nominated for best rap album. Jay-Z, who once boycotted the Grammys because of thes hows lack of love for hiphop, says Grammy nominations are cool, but he doest use the accolades as a barometer of his success. The Grammys and all of those other things, theyre f ine and its a good way for everyone to get togethera mongst their peers and collect some trophies at the end of the night, but my whole t hing is for the people, as long as the people accept it thats my real Grammy J ay-Z said. As long as it connects with an audience in a way But Steve Stoute, the former record executive who accused the Grammys of being irrelevant last year in af ull-page advertisement in The New York Times after E minem and Justin Bieber lost top awards, says there is a bigger problem. Stoute b elieves The Recording Academy doesnt have board m embers who understand hip-hop as a true art form. If (The Recording A cademy) understood that, then (rappers ing technical points, he said. They dont get the technical points. I n Grammy history, 14 hiphop albums have received nominations for album of the year. Lauryn Hill has the distinction of being the first hip-h op artist to win album of the year for The Miseducation o f Lauryn Hill in 1999, but the album, while featuringr ap, was heavy on R&B. Hill also won best new artist that year, the second time a rapb ased act had done so following Arrested Developments win in 1993. Arapper hasntw on the award since. OutKast, the alternative, g enre-bending hip-hop duo, followed in Hills footsteps with an album of the year win in 2004 for the double disc Speakerboxxx/TheL ove Below. It, too, was not strictly hip-hop, as Andre 3 000 blended rock and even jazz for his half of the project. B ut while there have been high-profile wins, what s tands out more are the losses. No rapper has ever won record or song of the year, a nd both Eminem and West, each nominated three times, have failed to win the album of the year trophy in years where they appeared to bec ritical favorites. At last years Grammys, three of the five songs nominated for record of the year were rap smashes. LadyA ntebellums crossover hit, Need You Now, ended up t aking away the record and song of the year honors. Ahmir Questlove T hompson, the leader and drummer of the Roots, says the hip-hop community shares some of the blame for its losing streak. He sayst hose in the genre arent involved enough with The Recording Academy, its community and its events. ere not active members o f (The Recording Academy) and I promise to take a more active role in that, said Questlove, who has won three Grammys. I should definitely come and be morei nvolved in that. Its taxing time-wise, but you know, I c an either sit and complain ... or do something about it. Jam says raps losses are a lso a reflection of the Grammy membership, which h e said is traditionally very heavy with members of the country, jazz and classical music worlds. ere a membership o rganization and the members vote. So, if the numbers o f members who consider themselves of the hip-hop genre ... if those numbers arel ower, then the results probably point to that fact, Jam s aid. But Stoute, who is the author of The Tanning ofA merica: How Hip-Hop Created a Culture That Rewrote the Rules of the N ew Economy, had harsh words for Jam, a founding m ember of funk-soul band The Time and best known for producing multiple hits for Janet Jackson, Usher, Boyz II Men and more with partnerT erry Lewis. Stoute and Jam had a conversation after last years awards, and Stoute was upset that Jay-Zs Empire State of Mind wast up for song of the year: At the Grammys, a track is not eligible for that award ifi t contains a sample or if its not an original piece of work; that disqualifies much of rap, which relies heavily on sampling (Empire State ofM ind samples The MomentsLove on a TwoWay Street). Stoute said Jam should be helping hip-hop, and blastedt he renowned producer. What hes doing is not right, Stoute said of Jam. And if hes supposed to be the guy who understands urban music because of hisf amed career as a producer ... (ands not going to be s ensitive to the creativity around hip-hop, I am sorry, were in trouble. J am, who was The Recording Academys chairm an from 2005 to 2009, says his goal was to diversify the Grammy community, and if people have an issue with traditional Grammy rules, theys hould demand a change. ou can write a proposa l, Jam said. I hope ... people step up to the challenge rather than dismiss it, whichi s the easy thing to do. Jam also said he helped b ring forth the best rap song award at the 2004 Grammys, which honors rap tracks thatc ontain samples. Jam also implemented a new rule in 2009 that allowed anyone n ominated for a Grammy to bypass the regular application p rocess and automatically be made a member for a year. He said he did it so that nominated acts would easily be involved in the organizationt he following year. If hip-hop is the most nominated, then they should be the best represented according to what I did, Jam said. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, January 25, 2012Page 11B 24/7; 5.542"; 10"; Black; krispy krunchy/car wash; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 1 1 6 6 9 9 LAMPE & KEIFFER; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 1/25/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 1 1 7 7 5 5 M CT Kanye West, left, and Jay Z perform at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Auburn Hills, Michigan in November.

C M Y K B y NEKESAMUMBI MOODY APMusic WriterN EWYORK On her last album The Dreamer r eleased just three months before her death, Etta James sings a mix of covers, fromt he R&B classic Misty Blue to the Ray Charles song In the Evening. But p erhaps the most curious tune included on the disc m ay be the Guns NRoses staple Welcome to the Jungle. That a 73-year-old icon of R&B would tackle the fre-n etic rock song albeit in a pace more fitting her blues roots might seem odd. But the song may be the best representation of James as both a singer and a person rambunctious in spirit, w ith the ability to sing whatever was thrown at her, w hether it was jazz, blues, pining R&B or a song from one of the rowdiest bands in rock. She was able to dig so d eep in kind of such a raw and unguarded place when she sang, and thats the power of gospel and blues and rhythm and blues. Sheb rought that to all those beautiful standards and rocks songs that she did. All the number of vast albums she recorded, she covered such a wide variety of material that brought such unique phrasing and emotional depth, said Bonnie Raitt, a close friend, in an interview on Friday afternoon after Jamesdeath. I think thats what appealed to people, aside from the fact that her personality on and off the stage was so huge and irrepressible. She was ribald and raunchy and dignified, classy and strong and vulnerable all at the same time, which is what us as women really relate to. James, whose signature song was the sweeping, jazztinged torch song At Last, died in Riverside, Calif., from complications ofl eukemia. Her death came after she struggled with d ementia and other health problems, health issues that kept her from performing fort he last two or so years of her life. It was a life full of strugg les. Her mother was immersed in a criminal life a nd left her to be raised by friends, she never knew her true father (though she believed it was billiards great Minnesota Fats), ands he had her own troubles, which included a decadeslong addiction to drugs, turbulent relationships, brushes with the law, and other tribulations. One might think all of t hose problems would have weighted down Jamesspirit, a nd her voice, layering it with sadness, or despair. While she certainly could channel depression, anger, and sorrow in song, herv oice was defined by its fiery passion: Far from beaten down, James embodied the fight of a woman who managed to claw her wayb ack from the brink, again and again. Its an attitude that influenced her look as well. Despite the conservative era, she dyed her hair platinum blonde, sending out the signal that she was far from demure, and owning a brassy, sassy attitude. She relished her role as saucy singer, a persona that she celebrated in her private life as well. In terms of 1950s rhythm and blues stars, she had kind of a gutsy attitude and she went out there and did what she did, and she was kind of bold ... and it had a huge influence, she said. I think her gutsiness and her lack of fear and just her courage (made her special believe that made her important and memorable. Beyonce, who played James in the movie CadillacR ecords about Chess Records, also spoke about h er influence on other singers. I feel like Etta James, f irst of all, was the first black woman I saw with platinum, blonde hair. She w ore her leopard and she wore her sexy silhouette and s he didnt care. She was strong and confident and always Etta James, said Beyonce in a 2008 interview. James could often be irasc ible. Ritz remembers when he was working with her on the autobiography, touring with her around the country, one time he approached her with his tape recorder and she barked: If see that taper ecorder again Im going to cram it up your (expletive B ut at other times, shed be effusive and warm and anxious to talk. Once she did talk, she was always candid andu nguarded. She was a free spirit, Ritz said. While Ritz put her in the category of other greats like Ray Charles, Aretha Franklina nd Marvin Gaye, she never enjoyed their mainstream success. Though At Last has become an enduring classic, there were times when James had to scrounge for work, and while she won Grammys and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, she did not have the riches, the multitude of platinum records or the hits that some of her peers enjoyed. She at least enjoyed a great resurgence like John Lee Hooker did and B.B. King, (and great decades of appreciation from new generations around the world, said Raitt. Theres no one like her. No one will ever replace Etta. And Ritz said the lack of commercial success does nothing to diminish her greatness, or her legacy. Marvin certain knew it a nd Ray knew it ... the people who know that she was in that category, he said. Whatever the marketplace did or didnt do or whether h er lack of career management didnt do, it has nothing to do with her talent. And on Friday, the Queen of Soul was among those w ho paid tribute to James greatness, calling her one of the great soul singers of our generation. An American original!

By MICHAELMcCALL F or The Associated PressTim McGraw never has lacked ambition, as illustrated by the country stars film acting and self-namedc ologne. That ambition comes across most clearly in his music. On Emotional Traffic, his 11th studio album, McGraw continuest o expand country musics boundaries. Thats why, 20 y ears into his career, his music still sounds so fresh, even though a legal disputew ith label Curb Records delayed the release of these s ongs, recorded in 2010. But theres no dust on these tracks, as McGraw and longtime co-producer Byron Gallimore create as ound marinated in modern rock yet crisp with catchy m elodies and real-life, country-music themes. McGraws range shows o n the albums first two hits. Felt Good On My L ips also released against the singers wishes as a bonus track on lasty ears two-CD Curb compilation Number One Hits is buoyed by an infect ious chorus and dynamic musical twists. Meanwhile, t he thoughtful ballad Better Than I Used To B finds a man pressing to become more responsible.

McGraws progressive a rtistry also comes through on Only Human, a duet with sweet-voiced R&B singer Ne-Yo, and the cover of One Part, Two Part originally written by Georgia soul singer Dee Ervin. Emotional Traffic may contain two-year-old r ecordings, but for McGraws fans, it will shine like tomorrows sunrise.

C M Y K Do you hate your mornings? Do you wake up in a bad mood? Do you feel like you got up on the wrongs ide of the bed? Your mornings do not have to be like this. All it takes is a little thought to change the CHAOS you have been liv-i ng in. That little thought is as simple as knowing what clothes you are wearing when you get up. If you will think about your morn-i ng before you actually have to face it; your morni ngs will run smoother. It all starts with a little before bed routine. H alf the battle with your morning has to do with you n ot being prepared to start your day. You run around in a tizzy trying to do all those last minute things you procrastinated about the nightb efore. Here is what happens when we put somet hing off. Lets start with our before bed routines. 1 We go to bed at 1 or 2 a.m. and have to get up at 7 a .m. We procrastinated by not going to bed at a decent hour. Then we cant get upo n time. 2. After you hit the snooze button a few times a nd it is 7:30 a.m. and to get to work on time we h ave to leave at 7:45 a.m. Now you have 15 minutes to get dressed and out the door and you have no clean clothes. 3 Not only did you go to bed late, but you did not lay out your clothes for tomorrow. So there again you have procrastinated and you are rushing around. 4. Now you are feeling t he time crunch and the pressure of being late to w ork or an appointment again. Then the guilt starts to pile on. 5. With the guilt comes blaming others and notl ooking at what our role was in our perpetual tardiness. Then we have martyrdom and the loud yelling voices that just add to thes tress along with the guilt. 6. Now we are half dressed, jumping in a car trying to put on makeup while driving and not paying attention to what we are doing. Not to mention that you have skipped breakfast and there is not even time for a quick drive through the golden arches. Well that could be the only positive thing about rushing; not time for negative nutrition with fast food. 7. Next thing we know the blue lights are flashing in our rearview mirror and we have yet another speeding ticket to have to explain and pay for. 8. That is, if we are lucky and we havent had a car accident with our babies in the car. 9. More money wasted all because we procrastinated and didnt go to bed in a decent hour to get up and start our day on the right foot instead of behind the eight ball. Just writing this makes me nauseated. I could not live this way anymore. The constant surge of adrenalin is hard on our bodies. We have to find a way to relieve the stress that our procrastination causes in our lives. Are you listening to me? Procrastination can kill us and maim our children. It can be a slow painful death of our bodies turning on us because of the constant surge of adrenalin with immune dysfunction or it can be a quick one with a car accident. You have a c hoice to stop this right now. I f I can ever get you to make peace with your mornings by establishing a few simple habits in your life; you will never go backt o living this way. The calmness of the mornings w ill start you out on a firm and steady pace for your whole day. Before you go to bed 1 Gather up the items you will need for tomorrow and put them by your frontd oor. 2. Check your calendar for tomorrows appointm ents 3. Lay out your clothes f or tomorrow 4. Brush and floss your teeth and wash your face. 5. Go to bed at a decent hour, this way you will feell ike getting up! When you get up in the morning 1. Get dressed as soon as your feet hit the floor 2. Swish and Swipe the b athroom while you are getting dressed. 3 Eat breakfast, drink water and take your supplements and medications 4. Gather up the items to take with you. 5 Do not wait till the last moment to leave your home. It is OK to be early. These simple habits will change your life.

I play t wo competitive sports, maintain a 4.0 GPA, have good friends and will be attending the college of my dreams. Yet for some reason I cannot get along with my parents. It seems like I cant live up to their s tandards. We get into huge fights every day over insignificant things. My parents continually tell me they dont think I will handle college very well because I cant get along with people. But their lack of faith just frustrates me and we get into more fights. In reality, the only people I dont get along with are my parents. This is unsettling to me because next fall I will be across the country from them and I feel they will be happy that Im gone. Im at a loss as to what to do to control my temper and fix my relationship with my parents before I leave. Your advice would be appreciated. Climbing The Walls in Cleveland DearClimbing The Walls: Its possible that your parents may be suffering from separation anxiety. You, their child, are about to leave the nest, and they may be dealing with conflicting feelings of pride in your accomplishments and sadness that you are about to fly from the nest. It may not be a lack of faith in you. Also, they may be having second thoughts about how they can afford the tuition and other college expenses beyond possible financial aid. Whatever their reasons are, you need some tools to help you stay calm and not fly off the handle when your buttons are pushed regardless of who is pressing them. In my booklet, The Anger in All of Us and How to Deal With It, I offer suggestions that will help you gain control of your emotions so that you will lose your temper less often. It can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus a check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds), to Dear Abby Anger Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Anger is a normal emotion. There are probably no h uman beings who dont experience anger at one time or another. However, its important that you learn some techniques to handle your emotional reactions more constructively than you have been. Not only will these tech-n iques help you with your parents now, but also they will help you when youre away at college adjusting to new people and new situations. Remember, the average person may become irritated, angry or frustrated several times a day. The key is to deal with these emotions effectively. Talk to your parents about your feelings and explore whats going on. By focusing on what is triggering your negative emotions instead of reacting with an outburst, you can not only defuse your anger but also retain your dignity, and possibly achieve a more informed understanding of how your parents may really feel. I hope that the outcome will be a rapprochement with your parents. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

FLY Lady Leanne Ely Associated PressWASHINGTON Purdue University President France Cordova was installed Monday as chairwoman of the Smithsonian Institutions governing board as the museum complex expands with the coming construction of a new black history museum and calls for another focused on Latino American heritage. As Cordova begins her three-year term, she will maintain her post at the Indiana university. Cordova will lead oversight and support fundraising for the worlds largest group of museums and research centers. Cordova is an astrophysicist and previously held posts in the University of California system and was chief scientist at NASA. Cordova succeeds Patty Stonesifer, a former Microsoft executive and former chief executive of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Stonesifer has served as chairwoman since 2009 and will become vice chair of the board. The Smithsonian is developing its first institutionwide capital campaign to increase private support. Congress provides about 70 percent of the Smithsonians budget, but funds for programs and exhibits must be raised privately. Construction also is set to begin this year on the newest museum to be added to the National Mall since the 2004 opening of the National Museum of the American Indian. Aceremonial groundbreaking has been set for Feb. 22 for the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Fundraising continues for the project. The $500 million museum is planned for a site near the Washington Monument, and organizers have said its on track to open in 2015. The Smithsonian must raise about half the cost for what will be its 19th museum, while Congress has pledged to provide the other half of the funding. An advisory board supporting the effort includes former first lady Laura Bush, Oprah Winfrey, Quincy Jones and others. Legislation also is pending in Congress that calls for the creation of a Smithsonian American Latino Museum on the Mall. Abill introduced in November calls for creating the museum at the historic Arts and Industries Building, which is now vacant. Purdue Univ. president becomes Smithsonian chair
