By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK With a 31 vote, the Avon Park council voted to terminate their contract with City Manager Bruce Behrens after just six months on the job. Paul Miller voted against the firing, which earned him applause from the audience, and Terry Heston abstained, since he rents property to Behrens. Councilman Parke Sutherland made the motion to draft a resolution to terminate Behrens after an hour-long "informal evaluation" where council members pointed out their issues with the city manager, who was hired by a unanimous vote on Sept. 13, 2010. "I am not certain that we as a city took the right way to get here. I apologize to Mr. Behrens. I am not certain that Mr. Behrens is the right person for the job," Sutherland said. Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray seconded the motion, and questioned Behrens' recent reorganization of several departments and went on to describe Behrens as showing a "total disrespect to this council," Gray said. "There is no communications with city council. I would like to know things before a newspaper calls me or a citizen calls me," Gray said. Gray also had issues with the city's relationship with other government agencies and with the diversity in city hall in the hiring process as well as the appointment of Project Manager Maria Sutherland to assistant city manager. "The city has an opportunity to show diversity in city hall. You hire other races and then they leave, there has to be something wrong with that. It is not all Mr. Behrens'fault. The entire city hall needs to be revamped. This problem came about way before he got here. Somebody needs to come up with some answers here," Gray said. Mayor Sharon Schuler stated that she had three issues overall with Behrens. "One was communicating with the council, second was the budget, third was that on several occasions the city manager had not told me the truth and I had lost trust and faith in him. That's all I had," Schuler said.

"As far as selecting me to help through this challenging time, you have my commitment to work through this troubling time," Deleon said after accepting the position. At the meeting, Deleon asked council to appoint a liaison to deal with him directly over city matters and he asked for either Mayor Sharon Schuler or Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray to take the position. Schuler stated that she felt very uncomfortable being the liaison to the city manager, but Gray stated she would be more than happy to lend her experience to Deleon.

The town wants to take over the utility, and the Highway Park Utilities, in order to create a regional municipal utility system to be run by the Lake Placid utility department. This is part of the overall Highlands County Comprehensive Plan. Many Tomoka Heights residents, however, are unhappy about the proposal. "We're very opposed to giving the (the utility) to the city," said Lois Krebbs, a resident. "Nothing personal against anyone at the city, it is just there are no redeeming features for us. We have a vote in the county, but not in the town, so we have no voice if the town takes over."

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING The Florida Public Archaeology Network has been busy the first two weeks of March bringing to life all sorts of ancient things and informing the masses of the science that is archaeology. Highlands County was lucky to be a part of the mix when members of the network visited Sebring High School Tuesday. Archaeologist from the University of South Florida in Tampa spoke to students from each grade level about archaeology while providing hands-on learning activities for the students to enjoy. Lake Placid graduate Zaida Darley is currently working towards her master's at USF and feels that archaeology is a field that can be interesting and fun. "Educating and appealing to the public is what we do and it's different at every age level. We work with students K-12 by engaging them in activity to get them interested in archaeology," Darley said. "We have lots of seminars and workshops for the public as well as teachers so that they can understand archaeology more. We try to incorporate lots of activities with them as well. It's easier to educate when there's things for people to do," Darley said. SHS students were broken up into groups, each doing activities that help them use the science and history lessons they've been learning to discover the archaeological significance of the activities. "Here the students have mystery cemeteries," explained Sandra Rankhorn, SHS media specialist. "Outside they are working with an ancient tool that helped Native Americans when they hunted." The mystery cemeteries were miniature grave and burial sites provided by FPAN. The students were to analyze and use archaeological observations, not assumptions, to figure out multiple aspects of the deceased person. "Look for patterns," Darley told the students. "You should be able to tell if the skeleton is a male or female, their social status, and why they were buried the way they are."

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK Avon Park Police Officers responded to gunshots at the corner of Hal McRae Boulevard and Delaney Avenue at 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning. According to Police Chief Michael J. Rowan, officers were patrolling less than a block away when the shots were fired and responded within seconds to the disturbance. When APPD officers arrived on the scene, they observed a "large number" of suspects running away from the area where there was a small number of people standing around at the intersection watching six subjects involved in a physical altercation. After officers calmed the crowd, six .45-caliber casings were found and cataloged into evidence, but a suspect was not identified. No injuries were reported and no arrests were made, according to Rowan, but the incident is still under investigation. Discharging a firearm in public is a first-degree misdemeanor.

www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, March 16, 2011Page 3A i ng is the leading cause of d eath for children 5 years old a nd younger. An average of 3 00 occur every year. In 2005, of all children 1-4 y ears old who died, almost 3 0 percent died by drowning. Surviving the initial subm ersion does not guarantee a h appy ending. According to the Bo A lvarez Foundation, "for e very child who dies, another f our are treated for submers ion-related accidents, some o f which cause permanent b rain damage." Bo Alvarez, a Sebring n ative, was 2 years old in 2 005 when he nearly d rowned in a swimming pool. W ithout oxygen for about 20 m inutes, he is one of those c hildren now severely disa bled with no hope of recove ry. There are measures to take t hat can raise the odds a gainst such a tragedy, but never forget water is as deadly as it is refreshing. Seconds count in surviving unharmed. Learn CPR. Never allow children to swim or play in a pool area without adult supervision. Even when adults are present, and especially if a party is in progress, designate individuals as dedicated watchers whose duty is to know where every child is at all times. Keep flotation devices around the pool just for emergencies and do not use them in play. Do not leave pool toys in the water or on the surrounding deck. Leave nothing that might tempt a child. Completely fence in the pool. If a wall of the house acts as a barrier on one side, be sure all doors leading to the pool have alarms that sound when opened. According to www.ezinearticles.com, fences and alarms are estimated to prevent 50 to 90 percent of child drownings. Make sure the fence is at least 4 feet high, with vertical slats close enough together a toddler can't squeeze through. It should have a self-closing, self-latching gate, with the latch out of reach of young children. Secure or remove steps to above ground pools. If a child goes missing always check the pool first. Introduce children to the water and teach safety rules. Children as young as six months can learn how to hold their breath. The YMCAis offering swimming classes during April and May, for children as young as six months old all the way up to adults. Call 382-9622 for more information.

Higginbotham stated that 13 of the originally 15 wells tested have come back negative, but on Tuesday the department of agriculture notified him of the possible contamination to the additional 13 homes. Most homes near the groves are served by city water, but some homes obtain water from private wells, according to Higginbotham, and only homes using the wells are effected. Each homeowner will be contacted by the health department to request permission to sample the wells. An investigation into the misapplication of the pesticide is being conducted by the Department of Agriculture, Higginbotham said. There is no indication that contamination has reached any well, but Higginbotham stated that "in an abundance of caution, the Highlands County Health Department has contracted with Heartland Spring Water to deliver drinking water until water test results are complete."

Are you aware that out of 5,755 eligib le voters in Sebring only 424 bothered to v ote in the city's council elections on M arch 8? And don't feel smug you residents of A von Park or Lake Placid your t urnouts are just as pathetic. What is it with the people in this count y and country today? We claim to revere our founding f athers; we recite the Pledge of A llegiance before every public meeting; w e report neighbors who fly tattered A merican flags; we give our children p atriotic coloring books to fill with red, w hite and blue; we defend every criticism t hat America is not the best, greatest, m ost wonderful nation in the history of h uman kind and yet only 7 percent of e ligible voters could be bothered to vote t his last city election. What kind of patriotism is that? What k ind of example is that to set for our child ren? What kind of a thank you is that to t he men and women who have died d efending our right to vote? Now, to be fair to those who didn't v ote, it is true that voting takes time and e nergy. For example, one of our staff members made his way through the ordeal Tuesday. He had to drive to the polling place, of course, and that did take about five minutes of his time, not to mention expensive gasoline. Then he had to park, shut off the car's engine and walk about 25 feet to the door of the polling place, which took another minute and a half. He was able to save some energy and time at the entrance, however, because a deputized volunteer opened the door for him but then he did had to find the proper person with whom to check in, as voters are listed alphabetically and the list was divided between four volunteers sitting at one table. After selecting the correct volunteer, he had to sign his name, reach out for the ballot and its protective cover probably using another minute. Carrying that weight he then had to walk another 10 feet or so to a voting desk fortunately not an old-fashioned booth or he would have had the additional burden of pulling a curtain aside pick up a pen and color in three of four ovals. This last task was rather complicated, because he had to make sure he kept within the lines. Granted, he is skilled with a pen, so it took him only about 45 seconds someone less adept would probably need a full minute. Then he had to put the ballot inside the cover and carry both another 15 or so feet to the collection computer. Again, being fair, this was another moment of difficulty as the voter has to separate the ballot from the cover and insert the correct piece into the machine. Fortunately, election officials understand how complex that act is, and they have a volunteer right there to help the bewildered. From home to completed vote, the entire process took well under 12 minutes, and our colleague reports he did not have to bulk up on carbs or eat extra protein in order to accomplish his mission. But still, almost 12 minutes to actually vote. That is asking a lot of a citizen in our busy world especially because the act of voting does not include the time and effort it takes to decide which candidate to support. Which is why we propose an overdue change to the Constitution allow for the creation of professional voters. Of course these people would have to be trained and certified, and probably salaried as opposed to being paid by the hour. It would be their job to attend stump speeches, watch television commercials, follow news stories, read editorials, and listen to debates thereby freeing the rest of us from the drudgery of research too. We could call them Professional Citizens, give them fancy badges to wear, and assigned parking at the polls. That way we would have the time to do the real work of democracy protesting against the elected officials whom we can't be bothered to vote for or against.

The Irish "need not apply" in America all over again. Ireland, you see, is not doing so well. Prior to the global economic meltdown, its service industry soared as global companies took advantage of its welleducated, English-speaking citizens. Emboldened by its good fortune, the Irish government, and many of its citizens, carried on like Americans. They overborrowed and overspent. Ahousing bubble formed and burst spectacularly. Now Ireland's unemployment rate is 13.5 percent. The high-paying service jobs have disappeared. And lots of well-educated Irish folks are fleeing their motherland yet again. But they're not heading to America this time. During the Irish potato famine of the 1840s, hundreds of thousands of Irish immigrants settled here. They took jobs in mills and coal mines and along rails and waterways. Follow America's waterways and rails and you'll find many places where the Irish settled. My great-great-grandfather came over in the 1840s and settled in Pittsburgh. I don't know if he worked in the mills, but he probably did, and his son, my greatgrandfather, was a foreman in one. His son, my grandfather, became a banker. Today, one in four Americans can trace their heritage to Ireland's rolling green hills. The Irish influence has benefited America. Bob Callahan, writing in Salon, says the melodies of the Irish fiddle were blended with the rhythms of African music to give birth to today's popular music. Irish vaudevillians, masters of knockabout physical comedy, influenced early Hollywood filmmaking and gave birth to the comic strip. But it's the mischievousness of Irish wit that has most influenced American culture. Callahan says the "hardboiled, darkly humorous, racetrack bitten" language of the Irish had a tremendous influence on American language, particularly the words of "brilliant, wisecracking Irish-Americans." Which reminds me of the one abo ut the Irish brewery worker who drown s in a vat of Guinness. His bes t friend visits the deceased man's wife to share the sad news. "Tell me, did he at least go quickly?" she asks him, crying. "Not exactly, missus," says the man's best friend. "Your husband got out of th e vat three times to use the bathroom." In my family, being Irish means laughing easily, neve r taking yourself too seriousl y, being cautious of getting stuck in the narrowness of your own point of view. Boy, America sure could use a fresh infusion of the Irish spirit but no luck o f the Irish this time. It's difficult for the new wave of Irish immigrants to get U.S. work visas now. W e don't have many jobs anyway. That's why the Irish are flocking to Canada! According to irishCentral.com, "attaining a one-year visa for Canada is much less complicated and more cost effective in comparison to the U.S." Unlike America, our friends to the north got thei r financial house in order and weathered the economic meltdown wonderfully. Canada's economy is going great guns. They are letting in twice as many skilled Irish immigrants as they did five year s ago. Ah, well, the least we Americans can do is have some Irish grace about our dire financial situation. Which reminds me of the time Paddy the fisherman died. His wife called the news paper to place his obituary. The newsman said the cost was $1 a word. "I only have $2," said Mrs. Paddy. "Just print Paddy died.'" The newsman, feeling sorry for her, gave her thre e extra words at no charge. "Akind man you are," sh e said. "Print me husband's obituary this way: Paddy died. Boat for sale.'" Tom Purcell, a freelance writer is also a humor columnist for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, and is nationally syndicated exclusively by Cagle Cartoons newspaper syndicate. Irish need not apply Time to hire professionals? I t is enough to make believers in democracy cry in despair; or gnash t heir teeth in frustration.

Timothy Boulay SebringDeficits and deceit E ditor: Just as it was once said t hat all roads lead to Rome, it is now the conventional wisdom that all of our economic woes are attributable to the middle class, the working people of America. At state and local governmental levels, a wedge issue to divide the electorate has been advanced; the cost of salary, pensions, and other benefits owed to public employees and their unions, is the cause of deficits. Never mind the fact that these benefits were not future funded by the folks in charge; now it is the responsibility of the public employees, and government must repudiate these debts. Social security is not part of the federal budget since it is funded by a separate payroll tax. But conservatives in congress now point to Social Security as an unsustainable obligation, ignoring the fact that for years the social security trust fund was "borrowed" to fund other projects and that the debt created to pay back these fundsbacked by the "full faith and credit" of the United States is to be ignored. Increasing taxes on the most wealthy is apparently anathema. Still advancing the trickle down argument to protect the wealthy, the supposed job creators. But they have done nothing to create jobs of late but invest overseas. Ignoring the fact that the author of supply side economics has repudiated his own theory. Clearly, all the solutions for our economic troubles are to be solved by imposing upon the working classes; entitlement programs to be gutted, tax breaks for the most wealthy are sacrosanct. Union busting is the answer. Somehow, the penultimate line in William Jennings Bryan's "Cross of Gold" speech seems apt, "...you shall not press down upon the brow of labor this crown of thorns." Randy Ludacer Lake Placid BouquetFiddle Show Barrage was great Editor: Saturday night's attraction at South Florida Community College was the Fiddle Show Barrage! I will say with enthusiasm that it lived up to it's name. There were eight musicians five (I call them violinists, not fiddlers), two guitarists and a drummer. There were two specialties: One a bag pipe and the other a tar, a wind instrument I hadn't seen since I was in Cairo, Egypt during World War II. They were presented in a magnificently orchestrated manner. The drummer reminded me of Gene Krupa at his height. The violinists were masters of the art. Their music, though loud and fast as advertised, was well presented and a joy to listen to. Our party, a group of 14 folks from our mobile home park (Hammock Estates), have a standing date with any good presentator at the school. We proceed as a group and have seats together in the showroom. As we parked the car, we were riding with friends and started the long walk to the theatre. I had misgivings as to making it since I have had some heart trouble in the past. I made it into the entrance and into the foyer. Then I remembered that our tickets were for the balcony and steps before me were formidable. However the hand rails and carpeted stairs made the transit easy and we proceeded to our seats and the show. I have seen many violin presentations but this was the loudest and most moving show I have ever seen. Not a number was played that the performers were not moving at all times while playing the violins. They reminded me of the Andre Reiu Show on TVand at one time during the present show one of the violins did the same jump Rieu does in his show. It was a very pleasant evening and a credit to the school. Proof of their capability to get good performers into their theatre. Woodie Jackson Sebring

Endeavour is due to blast off April 19 on its final flight. The shuttle arrived at the pad last week.

On Tuesday morning, D eleon forwarded an e-mail t o the press outlining his i deas for how to manage the c ity. "We are dealing with a diff icult situation, and challengi ng budget time," Deleon s aid in the e-mail. "We have very capable d epartment heads; however, w e need to reestablish some u nity, and regain the city's o rganizational focus. The P olice, Fire and Public Works D epartment are working just f ine...city hall operations n eed to be re-examined and e valuated. "I am committed to worki ng with everyone," his em ail continued. In the e-mail, Deleon laid o ut six priorities that he was i mmediately working t owards as interim city mana ger: "1. Better communications a t all levels within the organi zation. 2. Look for cost reduct ions, and efficiencies in s ervice delivery. 3. Centralize City operat ions where possible. A C entralized operations model c ould bring in some savings b y removing replication of e fforts. 4. I would like to work w ith Council to develop a c ompensation system which w ill promote end of year b udgetary savings from u nspent budgeted funds. In e ssence, we would keep base p ay rates at the same levels; h owever, from possible and l ikely end of year budget savi ngs, Council could opt to s hare a small percentage (%) o f these savings with the C ity's work force. I believe t his concept will promote a h igher level of consciousness a t all levels from department H eads to our field employees t o look for cost reductions, e fficiency, frugality, and v alue oriented decision maki ng. It would obviously be a C ouncil approved program if i mplemented. 5. For our annexation strate gy, we are currently r esearching our options on c reating a dependent i mprovement District under F S 189 which could help the C ity in the financing and c onstruction of utilities, d rainage and roads infras tructure into the unincorpor ated areas as we annex and e xpand our municipal bounda ries. Districts have more f lexibility when it comes to c onstructing and financing n ew infrastructure. I would l ike to leverage this flexibilit y to expand our corporate l imits. My previous 14 years o f employment were spent w orking for municipal D istricts, so I understand their purpose and role in helping us implement an annexation strategy. Again, any action would require Council approval. 6. I would also like to work closely with the County to develop an exclusive franchised utility territory within the unincorporated areas for the City. It only makes sense to establish our municipal foot print with regard to utilities service areas in the county's unincorporated service areas."

"We need to let well e nough alone and let him do h is job," Miller said. Members of the community s tressed that they felt Behrens w as doing fine as city manger. "Since the time of the city m anager has arrived to date, w e have very good communic ations with the city manager. H e has taken the time to visit o ur projects and really get i nvolved in what is going on," s aid Larry Shoeman, execut ive director of the Avon Park H ousing Authority. "We do not have a problem w ith communications and l ook forward to having a posi tive relationship with him a nd this council," Shoeman a dded. Former Mayor Tom M acklin spoke as the chair for t he city's planning and zoning c ommission and stated that he too had a good working relationship with Behrens. "As your chair of your planning zoning commission, Mr. Behrens has been present at several meetings and has been responsive to our needs," Macklin said. "He has come up with several ideas that resulted acceptable compromises and his experience and his calming demeanor was very valuable. As far as the communications, he has been very responsive and contacted the parties who needed to be involved." Warren West, representing the fire department, also expressed that his department was happy with the work Behrens was doing. "We asked the city manager to form a committee for hiring a fire chief. We wished to have a large pool of applicants. He has been responsive to our needs," West said. After the motion was made, City Attorney Buhr directed the council towards a resolution that he had prepared before the meeting. "In anticipation of this motion, I have put together a resolution because I thought this was going to come up," Buhr said. Buhr explained to the council that to adopt a motion to draft a resolution, as per the city charter and Behrens'contract. The council passed a second motion to adopt the resolution, and then moved on to selecting an interim city manager. Buhr pointed out again that the charter requires the city clerk to be the interim manager, but Cheryl Tietjen, who currently holds that position, declined the job. Miller then nominated Public Works Director Julian Deleon to take the position, and the vote was unanimous. Behrens has five days to sign a waiver of further liability against the city in order to get three months of severance pay. Continued from page 1A Continued from page 1A Behrens fired by AP council Deleon already has plan in place no injuries or damage to report. "There were 12 homes that were saved and the homeowners used Firewise techniques," Yunas wrote in her press release. "Firewise tips really helped both wildland and structural firefighters save homes in Wildland Urban Interface." The Division of Forestry used a bulldozer to cut a fire line all the way around the fire and Highlands County firefighters will be putting out hot spots as needed. "Residents will continue to see smoldering and smoke for a while (until) either the fire burns up to the fire lines or a significant rainfall event occurs," Yunas wrote. Firewise techniques involve building a safe area around homes that are in or near wooded areas. Tips include Create a defensible space of buffer zone of at least 30 feet around your home. Keep your grass mowed. Rake leaves and needles and disposes of them properly. Thin trees limbs to create a break between tree crowns in the yard and those in the surrounding forest. Remove any branches that overhand or touch your roof. Clear a 10 foot area around barbecue grills and do not leave them unatten ded. Place stove, chimn ey and barbecue grill ashes in a metal bucket, soak in wat er for two days, then bury in the soil. Store gasoline, oi ly rags and other flammab le materials in approved safe ty cans and place cans in a sa fe place away from buildings Stack firewood at lea st 100 feet from your home or as far away as possible. Be sure your garag e, shed or other storage are as are neat enough to allow a firefighter to enter in fu ll gear with a hose.

The utility is in the black," s he said. "It uses no taxpayer m oney." She worried that the transf er was the first step to being a nnexed into the town. "We d on't want future annexat ion," she said. At the Lake Placid regular t own council meeting M onday night, the council m ade it clear it was aware of t hose concerns by passing a r esolution meant to allay t hem. In exchange for taking o ver the utilities, the town a grees "that it will not initia te annexation proceedings i nvolving the residential portions of Tomoka Heights development" and "specifically waives any right which it has or may have to commence annexation proceedings," the resolution said. The resolution does say the homeowners of Tomoka Heights, through their association, may seek annexation by lawful vote. In addition, the town said that after a phase-in period, "customers would be charged the same utility rates as residential customers within the Town of Lake Placid receiving equal utility service." Gary Freeman, director of utilities for Lake Placid, said Tuesday morning that overall the town's current rates are lower than either of the two private utilities, but that a rate study would be done in the future. He added that after the systems were looped together rates would go down due to economies of scale. "There will be three times the number of customers," he said. "The more customers, the more the costs spread out." County engineer Ramon Gavarrete wants interested parties unable to attend the meeting to know they may write to the county commission at 600 S. Commerce Avenue in Sebring, 33870; contact the county's public information officer at 4026836, or e-mail a message to www.hcbcc.net Continued from page 1A Placid Utilities purchase subject of special meeting in Lake Placid After getting all the facts about the skelet ons the students then hypothesized stories a bout what caused the deaths. Outside, archaeologist Rebecca O'Sullivan w as busy demonstrating to students the atlatl, a pre-historic throwing stick used by Native A mericans to help in the hunt for food. "It's not just archaeology they're learning h ere, it's also physics," O'Sullivan said. The s tudents were given one set of throwing sticks s imilar to the atlatl and asked to throw it. M ost of the students were unable to throw v ery far. After many tries O'O'Sullivan d emonstrated the difference between it and t he atlatl. "It allows the throwers more force and less energy is used with the atlatl," explained O'Sullivan. The ninth graders all spent several minutes launching the atlatl into the green in front of the parking lot of the high school. "They're using all they've learned in other classrooms here, and it's exciting to them. Some of them are able to look at something and read it and retain it, but not many of them. "With things like this the students learn so much more and are able to connect it with everything else," said Rankhorn. For more information, visit www.flpublicarchaeology.org.

Since rainfall amounts will generally remain moderate, widespread new ” ooding problems are not anticipated. However, isolated issues may arise. The southern extent of this storm system will bring a bit of rain to the eastern Carolinas. Otherwise, an area of high pressure will return dry conditions to the Southeast. Circulation around the back side of this high will pump warm air from the Southwest. U.S. Cities National Forecast for March 16Shown are noon postions of weather systems and precipitation.

By BARRYFOSTER Special to the News-SunSEBRING Race fever is gearing up for the 59th running of the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida. Officials at the American Le Mans Series are looking at one of the largest fields in better than a decade for their opener and officials of the Sebring International Raceway are trying to find spaces for the nearly 60 cars that have registered for the event. Much of that comes due to the inclusion of those interested in the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup, with some of the top teams in Europe planning to compete here in Sebring. Alook at the line-up for the prototypes is a who's who of road racing. Defending Sebring champs Peugeot Team Total will be back at the circuit, but with a completely new car. They will debut the new Peugeot 908, although the speed and driver skill will be there, questions remain as to whether a new car will be able to weather Sebring's rough circuit. Peugeot will be challenged by Audi Sport Team Joest, who sat out last year's race. For the 2011 edition Audi will field an R15++. Fans had hoped to see the new R18 but that apparently is not to be. While questions remain about the Audi's older model the car's reliability already is 12 Hour tested. Also challenging for an overall win will be Highcroft Racing. The defending ALMS LMPchamp's Honda Performance Development ARX-01e LMP1 made its debut literally days before the race. The new car features a heavily revised aerodynamic and suspension package design and built by HPD's partner, Wirth Research. Muscle Milk, who took the checkers in LMP2 last year with a Porsche Spyder, now have switched to the Aston Martin DBR1 run at Sebring last year as a factory entry. Drivers Klaus Graf and Greg Pickett turned in blistering times at the ALMS Winter Test. They will be joined by Sebring veteran Lucas Luhr in the cockpit for the 12 Hours. Dyson Racing returns for a third year with their Mazda powered Lola Coupe sporting the new G-OILlivery with additional signage featuring ModSpace and Constructcorps. Joining the team is Jay Cochran, partnering Chris Dyson and Guy Smith in the #16 G-OILentry. From across the pond comes a cadre of Le Mans prototypes that will provide an almost incalucuable mix to the competition. For instance, French privateers and European Le Mans Series champions Team ORECA-Matmut decided to field a Peugeot 908 HDi FAP. The team last raced in Sebring in 2000 when they scored a 1-2 class finish with a pair of Dodge Vipers Rebellion Racing will again race with a Lola Coupe in the premier LMP1 category but will switch from Rebellion-badged Judd engines used in 2010 to Toyota powerplants. They will be the exclusive partner of the Japanese marque in the premier category of endurance racing. Henri Pescolaro returns to Sebring in force in the form of Oak Racing. The French squad is seeking to enter a brace of 3.4-litre OAKPescarolo-Judd LMP1 prototypes and a 3.6-litre OAKPescarolo-Judd V8 car in t he Intercontinental Le Ma ns Cup. That ambitious effort w ill put no fewer than thr ee Pescalaro Judds on the trac k, two in LMP1 and one in LMP2. In LMP2 there's compe tition from Signature Racin g. Racing under the SignaTe ch name, they have acquir ed NISMO tuned, Zyt ek Manufactured VK45 V 8 Nissan engines to push the ir Oreca3 cars around the hi storic circuit. Following a record-settin g season for Level 5 Motorsports the team wo n five events en route to t he overall LMPC title, the tea m will put a pair of Honda/Lo la LMP2 cars on the grid for t he ILMC opener at Sebring. Finally, LNTRacing w ill bring a Radical SR9-IE S Nissan Ginetta to the LMP 2 division for Sebring. They made their debut du ring the Winter Test, but we re not able to turn many laps.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK It had b een nearly a month since t he South Florida C ommunity College baseb all team had tasted defeat Friday, Feb. 18, to be e xact, in a 9-2 loss a t Palm Beach State C ollege. Since then, howe ver, the Panthers h ave been on an u nprecedented roll, w inning 14 straight t hrough Saturday's 4 -3 win at the State C ollege of Florida in B radenton. "It's the biggest streak s ince I've been here," h ead coach Rick Hitt said. And I don't recall seeing a nything in our records t hat was longer." But all good things m ust come to an end and t hings came crashing d own in a 12-2 loss in the m iddle game of the threeg ame set with the Manatee's Monday night. "We didn't deserve to win tonight," Hitt said. "We had talked about responding to Saturday's game. They are a talented club and you want to let a sleeping giant lie." That the Panthers did relatively well early on, as starting pitcher Adam Quiles set down the defending state champs in order in the first. But control problems allowed a lead-off walk to start the second and falling behind in the count to BJ Zimmerman, Quiles left one a little too nice for a single to right to put runners on the corners. Achopped grounder to short looked to be the start of a double play, but the toss to second found turf, bringing a run in and keeping two runners on.

Zimmerman flew out to c enter and a fly to short right l ooked to again keep the M anatee's off the board. But the pop-up dropped, bringing Dantzler in and things soon took a turn for the worst. Consecutive hit batters loaded the bases and brought a run in before a Paul Stortini single brought two in for a 50 lead with reliever Richard Whiteleather getting out of the inning with a strike out of Dantzler. Things snowballed from there in the sixth as seven runs came in on four hits, three walks and an error for a 12-0 margin.

Box 1538, Gastonia, NC 28053 or send an e-mail to mdutton@gastongazette.com The drivers change, but the number (18) remains the same in the Camping World Truck Series. Kasey Kahne, in the Toyota usually driven by Kyle Busch, won at Darlington. At the moment, Tony Stewart has 39 career Sprint Cup victories and 39 second-place “ nishes. The racing at Bristol Motor Speedway has changed a bit in recent years. Nowadays passes occur without bumps ƒ sometimes. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is popular everywhere, but nowhere is his support more apparent than at Bristol. What changes from the end of one season to the start of the next? Not much if youre Carl Edwards. Led by Edwards, the resurgence of Fords Cup teams is a major development. The Busch brothers have combined to win nine times at Bristol. Older brother Kurt has won “ve of the brothers nine, but Kyle has captured three of the past four races at BMS. The Nationwide and Camping World Truck series still await their “rst winners with driver points. All races to date have been won by drivers declaredŽ to Cup. The “rst three races have provided an upbeat start to the season. For the “rst time in a while, NASCAR appears to be gaining momentum. The new points system makes bad “nishes more dif“cult to overcome. Its still a bit early to dismiss the Chase chances of 31st-place Jeff Burton, but its no longer too early to be worried. Whos hot: In Kasey Kahnes career, he has raced four times in the Camping World Truck Series ... and won three times. ... In three races, Carl Edwards already has a “rst and a second. Whos not: Only one driver, Mark Martin in 2009, has been outside the top 30 after three races and made the Chase. ... Jeff Burton is currently tied for 31st. Kyle Busch is coming off a 38th in Las Vegas. Kahne V E R S U SThe only poor performance of the season to date for Edwards was at Phoenix, where his Ford was wrecked by Buschs Toyota. Busch apologized profusely, taking the blame. If a race „ oh, maybe, one at Bristol „ comes down to a battle between the two drivers, it should be worth watching. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: Edwards appreciates Buschs apology, but that doesnt make the matter resolved.ŽKYLE BUSCH VS. CARL EDWARDSBy Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekOne of the seasons significant developments, at least to date, is the performance of Ford teams. Trevor Bayne and Carl Edwards have piloted Fords to victories in two of the first three Sprint Cup races. Right now, as I look at our program, except for the judgments we made and running over things on the race track, our (Roush Fenway) Fords have never run better,Ž said owner Jack Roush. I cant wait to see how things unfold. Im really excited about what we have in front of us.Ž Roush Fenway is the centerpiece of Fords NASCAR operation, providing engines, cars and other assistance to the Wood Brothers (Bayne) and Richard Petty Motorsports. Success can be fleeting, of course. It is way too early to be thinking championship,Ž added Roush. (At) one of the two races before Homestead in the fall, I encouraged everyone to be as conservative as we might be if it were in our grasp. We cant make a misstep and keep our eye on the ball. We cant squander the opportunity we have now that were running better than we did last year.Ž Comedian, huh? „ After winning on March 6 in Las Vegas, Edwards was asked if he had any comments for the Spanish followers of NASCAR.Ž Amid laughter, Edwards said something roughly equivalent to this: Buenos dias, gracias, me coche is muy rapido and much denero today. I took a lot of Spanish, folks, but I did not pay attention.Ž Its the ƒ truck, too „ Kyle Buschs No. 18 Toyota was fast in the Too Tough to Tame 200, Darlingtons Camping World Truck Series race, even though Busch was taking advantage of the Sprint Cup off week to vacation. Kasey Kahne, substituting for Busch, won for the third time in four career Truck starts. Busch won the seasons second race at Phoenix. Change is no change „ In announcing the format for the Sprint All-Star Race, scheduled for May 21 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, track president Marcus Smith said, The big change is that theres not going to be a change.Ž Hmm. Early yet „ In 2000, the (then Winston) Cup season opened with 10 different drivers winning the first 10 races. So far, different drivers „ Trevor Bayne, Jeff Gordon and Carl Edwards „ have won the first three races. It is, however, the first time a season opened without a repeat winner in the first three races since 2007. FdNASCARtiidi Success breeds optimism for 2011 Ford season By Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekTodd Bodine is the reigning champion of the Camping World Truck Series. In the past six seasons, he has won two championships and never finished lower than fourth in the season standings. Though he is coming off a third-place finish at Darlington Raceway, Bodine faces challenges in defending his 2010 championship. It remains a struggle to secure enough sponsorship for his Germain Racing Toyota. Were not even close to set,Ž said Bodine. Tire Kingdom ... I think theyre going to do four more (races). Valvolines going to do a couple, and now we have one with Georgia Boot. Weve still got a lot of races that we need to get sponsorship for. Its going to get better. I keep saying that since the end of last year, but its going to get better. I think, by the end of the season, youre going to see a lot of things happening with sponsors, and a lot of these corporations are going to start cutting loose with some of their marketing money and swinging it our way.Ž Bodine, 47, is the youngest of three racing brothers. Unlike Geoff and Brett, Todd has never won at the Sprint Cup level, though he has finished in the top five seven times. With 21 career Truck victories, Bodine ranks fifth all-time. So far, our luck has just been horrible,Ž said Bodine of the current season to date. Our philosophy is to go every week, do the best we can and what happens, happens. You cant control everything. Were pleased with our performance. The state of the series is pretty obvious. Weve got probably the best field of trucks that weve ever seen in the history of the series, and we have a lot of younger kids coming in. The experience level may be down a little bit, but weve got a lot of kids who have a lot of talent and a lot of future and a lot of promise. The state of the series is strong ƒ really strong.Ž The winners of the seasons first three races „ Michael Waltrip, Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne „ do not compete for the championship. Bodine takes little consolation in that. Were here to win, not to finish second,Ž he said.Bodine Staying On Top Of TrucksSponsorship, competition are a few obstacles for reigning champJohn Clark/NASCAR This WeekThough he hasnt won at the Sprint Cup level, Todd Bodine has mastered the Camping World Truck Series. The youngest of three racing brothers (Geoff and Brett), the 47-year-old reigning champion has won two championships and has never finished lower tha n fourth in the season standings.

Kyle Busch Edwards Ratings and Selling Sex?This Week welcomes letters to the editor, but please be aware that we have room for only a few each week. Well do our best to select the best, but individual replies are impossible due to the bulk of mail received. Please do not send stamped and self-addressed envelopes with your letters, which should be addressed to: NASCAR This Week, The Gaston Gazette, P.O. Box 1538, Gastonia, N.C. 28053. Dear NASCAR This Week, I am a little curious about how NASCAR can forbid a cigarette company, liquor company and anything pertaining to a gun business/company from putting a sponsorship on any car, but they will allow a sponsorship that sells sex. If Danica Patrick has to put out a commercial like that to promote herself, I have very little respect for her, and I am sure she does not care what I think, but I am hoping that there are some people who do care. With all the sex crimes that happen, especially to women, you should all be ashamed. I would rather see the cigarette, liquor and gun companies name on a car than GoDaddy with that type of sales pitch. Rita Dyke Grand Haven, Mich. You certainly have every right to take offense at any advertisement, but GoDaddy doesnt sell sex. It sells websites. Its far from the only company to use a sexy message in advertising. The bansŽ to which you refer are not in effect. Liquor sponsorships have become particularly common in recent years. Dear NASCAR This Week, ƒ I have been following NASCAR racing for more than 50 years, and the Twin 150s (qualifying races at Daytona) were the most boring races I have ever seen. I predict low TV ratings and more lack on interest in NASCAR. Its time (Sprint Cup director) John Darby and his cronies get it right. The way the races looked ƒ they might as well give half the field a tow bar, let them find a partner, hook em up, and race. Even better, make the race track a figure eight. It aint your fathers Daytona 500. Don Bagwell Asheville, N.C. Thanks for letting us know how you feel, Don. Everything changes after Daytona, and everyone will move on to different issues once the restrictor plates are removed.

He wished all who are leaving to drive safely and we all look forward to seeing you next fall. Fred White introduced his and Sherry's son, Jay White from Minnesota. We also had Rita and Andy Anderson's son, Gary, visiting his parents, and he is from Indianapolis.

The Scope of Oriental MedicineOriental medicine includes acupuncture, Chinese herbology, dietary therapy, exercise and bodywork based on traditional Oriental medicine principles. This system of health care is used extensively by one-quarter of the worlds population residing in Asia, and is rapidly growing in popularity in the West. Oriental medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the biochemical model of Western medicine.AcupunctureAcupuncture is the 5000 year old Chinese system of natural healing. Fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points of the body to restore a balanced flow of energy. Through acupuncture, Qi (energy) is allowed to move freely throughout the body, reestablishing balance. This balance helps the body achieve higher levels of health and well-being.Chinese HerbsFor as long as people and plants have coexisted, herbal medicine has been around in some shape or form. It has been found to very helpful in treating conditions such as allergies, ADD and ADHD, menopausal syndrome, chronic pain and many, many other ailments.Jeanie O. Lee, D.A.O.M.

DearAbby: I am 67 and m y roommate is 62. He and I c ould be out dating every n ight of the week. We get calls h ere like it is a fraternity h ouse. I think it's because we k now how to treat women. I hear other men our age c omplain they can't get a date o r find the "right" woman. T hey say they are lonely, a lways being "used," etc. I tell t hem: Get a life. Think of s omeone besides yourself. My buddy and I think in t erms of what would please t he lady. Other guys think a r omantic date is grabbing a b ite at a fast-food restaurant, r enting a violent movie, or f lopping at the woman's house a nd falling asleep after she's m ade him a home-cooked m eal. I say: Learn to dance, g et some new clothes, ask a w oman what her interests are. I did it, and I've learned to e njoy art shows, plays, visiting f lea markets, etc. Alady once told me, "You d on't need a woman. You are a great cook, and you iron bett er than I do." My answer to h er was, "Those are not the t hings I need a lady for." So, Abby, my advice to l onely old men is this: Get y our act together. As Auntie M ame said, "Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death." Having a Peach of a Time in Georgia DearHaving a Peach: Thank you for your enlightened philosophy. My crystal ball tells me that neither you nor your buddy will ever be starving for food at the banquet of life or attention and affection, either. DearAbby: What do you do when your future in-laws tell other relatives that they intend to ruin your upcoming wedding? They are upset because they were not included in the wedding party. My future mother-in-law let it be known she's dressing up like a hooker. I have family members who are police officers coming to the wedding. The only idea I can come up with to prevent it is to ask them to guard the door of the church, and if need be, escort these unruly people out before they can raise a ruckus. As you might have gathered, my fiance's parents don't want me to marry their son. On the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown DearOn the Verge: Take a deep breath and talk to your fiance about eloping. Once your in-laws accept the fact that the knot has already been tied, you can host a lovely reception. When the time comes, give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they'll behave themselves. Use the police only as a last resort, but if it comes to that, cross your fingers and hope your mother-inlaw solicits one of them. DearAbby: At a cocktail party last night, the hostess handed me a glass of wine. When I started to take a sip, I noticed the glass was filthy. My immediate reaction was, "Alcohol kills germs." But the thought of putting the glass to my mouth was distasteful, so I told her the wine was "too sweet for my taste." She then handed me another glass of wine, and that one was as dirty as the first. How should I have handled it? Not Crystal Clear in Wisconsin DearNot Crystal Clear: The first time it happened, you should have said, "Oops! This glass didn't make it through the dishwasher" and returned it to your hostess. When it happened again, you should have said, "... this one, too." Then you should have asked for something you could drink from the original container. Sensible person that you are, I'm sure you didn't partake of the hors d'oeuvres, and won't be partying there again. Right? Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Good advice for everyone teens to seniors is in The Anger in All of Us and How to Deal With It.' To order, send a business-size, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $6 (U.S. funds only) to: Dear Abby Anger Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included). I have been going through Broccoli Block. You know, when you forget to turn on the veggies and you have your dinner ready to go but the veggies are sitting on the stovetop, cold, raw and just waiting for someone to turn them on and get them cooked? Why is that? I think the reason is we are zooming around the kitchen, multitasking as we should be and for me anyway, the stove isn't where my prep area is (it's to my back) and I just simply forget. Not always, but sometimes. It ticks me off. I've been cooking for a long time and to forget to turn on the veggies is outside of my realm of thinking, or so I thought. I've thought about the old adage, out of sight, out of mind and thought, that's the ticket. So I've taken to moving my prepped veggies (pot and all) and putting it on the countertop where I am preparing the evening meal. Now it's in my line of vision and I can still stay preoccupied with all the stuff I was so preoccupied with before, but now I won?t forget to turn on the veggies. If you're having Broccoli Block, maybe you want to fix it too, by putting whatever it is you're forgetting, right in the line of fire, so you see it and remember to do it. Part of getting dinner on the table every night is getting all the components ready at the same time. Doesn't take rocket science, but you do have to think about it. Here's a recipe to make your next dinner a success, especially if you've got summer heat to deal with:Pasta Salad with White BeansServes 6 1 (16 ounce) package fusilli pasta 1 cup canned white beans, drained and rinsed 5 ounces smoked turkey orregularham, chopped (oromit) 4 plum tomatoes, chopped 1 small red bell pepper, seeded, deribbed and cut in long, thin slices 10 Kalamata olives, pitted and halved (oruse black olives) 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, choppedEasy Balsamic Vinaigrette1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 clove garlic, pressed 1/2 cup olive oil Salt and pepperto taste Cook pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, make dressing (see below). Drain cooked pasta, rinse under cold water and set aside. In a large bowl, combine remaining salad ingredients add the pasta, vinaigrette an d toss lightly to mix. Dressing: Mix all ingredi ents together, whisking the olive oil in gradually at the end, until dressing is slightl y thickened. Season with salt and pepper.

LIVING 12B PAGE News-Sun Wednesday, March 16, 2011 FAMILYFEATURES S pring is full of celebrations and rich traditions that bring the family around the table for special meals. Asavory leg of lamb or a dish with succulent lamb loin chops is a delicious way to enjoy a flavorful meal, no matter the occasion. American lamb pairs beautifully with a variety of wines. Wineries such as Kendall-Jackson have a wide selection of wines that bring out lamb's mild, meaty flavor and make it even more irresistible. TipsforRoastingLambnAbone-in leg of lamb cooks faster than a boneless leg of lamb. Use a good meat thermometer to determine doneness: Rare135¡F Medium Rare145¡F Medium160¡FnYou can sear the lamb roast first in a hot 450¡F oven for 15 minutes to seal in the juices and then reduce oven temp to 325¡F and continue roasting for approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until internal temperature reaches 5 to 10 degrees less than your desired temperature. nRemove roast from oven and let rest for 20 minutes before serving. This allows the meat's juices to settle and make carving easier. (As the meat rests, the internal temperature will rise 5 to 10 degrees.)nCarve the roast against the grain so the meat will be tender. Anaturally tender cut like leg should be sliced about one half inch thick. To order a free "Spring Celebrations American Lamb" cook booklet, visit www.americanlamb.com. ChoosingtheRightWinenCOMPLEMENT. Similarly flavored foods and wines complement each other. Example: Citrus-based sauce and a lemony, lightly oaked Chardonnay (such as Kendall-Jackson Avant Chardonnay or Chablis from the Burgundy region of France). Example: Mushrooms with the earthy flavors of Pinot Noir.nCONTRAST. Contrasting flavors balance each other. Example: Spicy foods and sweet wines, such as Thai food and an off-dry Riesling. Example: Salty foods and crisp, high-acid wines such as Sauvignon Blanc or Champagne.nMATCH the TENOR. Match a food's weight and intensity to similar elements in wine. Example: Delicately flavored foods call for delicate varieties of wine, such as Pinot Gris or Sauvignon Blanc. Example: Weighty textures and intense flavors are a better match for more powerful wines, such as matching herb-crusted roast lamb with a robust Syrah or Merlot.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK With a 31 vote, the Avon Park council voted to terminate their contract with City Manager Bruce Behrens after just six months on the job. Paul Miller voted against the firing, which earned him applause from the audience, and Terry Heston abstained, since he rents property to Behrens. Councilman Parke Sutherland made the motion to draft a resolution to terminate Behrens after an hour-long informal evaluation where council members pointed out their issues with the city manager, who was hired by a unanimous vote on Sept. 13, 2010. I am not certain that we as a city took the right way to get here. I apologize to Mr. Behrens. I am not certain that Mr. Behrens is the right person for the job, Sutherland said. Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray seconded the motion, and questioned Behrens recent reorganization of several departments and went on to describe Behrens as showing a total disrespect to this council, Gray said. There is no communications with city council. I would like to know things before a newspaper calls me or a citizen calls me, Gray said. Gray also had issues with the citys relationship with other government agencies and with the diversity in city hall in the hiring process as well as the appointment of Project Manager Maria Sutherland to assistant city manager. The city has an opportunity to show diversity in city hall. You hire other races and then they leave, there has to be something wrong with that. It is not all Mr. Behrensfault. The entire city hall needs to be revamped. This problem came about way before he got here. Somebody needs to come up with some answers here, Gray said. Mayor Sharon Schuler stated that she had three issues overall with Behrens. One was communicating with the council, second was the budget, third was that on several occasions the city manager had not told me the truth and I had lost trust and faith in him. Thats all I had, Schuler said.

As far as selecting me to help through this challenging time, you have my commitment to work through this troubling time, Deleon said after accepting the position. At the meeting, Deleon asked council to appoint a liaison to deal with him directly over city matters and he asked for either Mayor Sharon Schuler or Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray to take the position.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING The Florida Public Archaeology Network has been busy the first two weeks of March bringing to life all sorts of ancient things and informing the masses of the science that is archaeology. Highlands County was lucky to be a part of the mix when members of the network visited Sebring High School Tuesday. Archaeologist from the University of South Florida in Tampa spoke to students from each grade level about archaeology while providing hands-on learning activities for the students to enjoy. Lake Placid graduate Zaida Darley is currently working towards her masters at USF and feels that archaeology is a field that can be interesting and fun. Educating and appealing to the public is what we do and its different at every age level. We work with students K-12 by engaging them in activity to get them interested in archaeology, Darley said. We have lots of seminars and workshops for the public as well as teachers so that they can understand archaeology more. We try to incorporate lots of activities with them as well. Its easier to educate when theres things for people to do, Darley said. SHS students were broken up into groups, each doing activities that help them use the science and history lessons theyve been learning to discover the archaeological significance of the activities. Here the students have mystery cemeteries, explained Sandra Rankhorn, SHS media specialist. Outside they are working with an ancient tool that helped Native Americans when they hunted. The mystery cemeteries were miniature grave and burial sites provided by FPAN. The students were to analyze and use archaeological observations, not assumptions, to figure out multiple aspects of the deceased person. Look for patterns, Darley told the students. You should be able to tell if the skeleton is a male or female, their social status, and why they were buried the way they are.

According to Police Chief Michael J. Rowan, officers were patrolling less than a block away when the shots were fired and responded within seconds to the disturbance. When APPD officers arrived on the scene, they observed a large number of suspects running away from the area where there was a small number of people standing around at the intersection watching six subjects involved in a physical altercation. After officers calmed the crowd, six .45-caliber casings were found and cataloged into evidence, but a suspect was not identified. No injuries were reported and no arrests were made, according to Rowan, but the incident is still under investigation. Discharging a firearm in public is a first-degree misdemeanor.

www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, March 16, 2011Page 3A i ng is the leading cause of d eath for children 5 years old a nd younger. An average of 3 00 occur every year. In 2005, of all children 1-4 y ears old who died, almost 3 0 percent died by drowning. Surviving the initial subm ersion does not guarantee a h appy ending. According to the Bo A lvarez Foundation, for e very child who dies, another f our are treated for submers ion-related accidents, some o f which cause permanent b rain damage. Bo Alvarez, a Sebring n ative, was 2 years old in 2 005 when he nearly d rowned in a swimming pool. W ithout oxygen for about 20 m inutes, he is one of those c hildren now severely disa bled with no hope of recove ry. There are measures to take t hat can raise the odds a gainst such a tragedy, but never forget water is as deadly as it is refreshing. Seconds count in surviving unharmed. Learn CPR. Never allow children to swim or play in a pool area without adult supervision. Even when adults are present, and especially if a party is in progress, designate individuals as dedicated watchers whose duty is to know where every child is at all times. Keep flotation devices around the pool just for emergencies and do not use them in play. Do not leave pool toys in the water or on the surrounding deck. Leave nothing that might tempt a child. Completely fence in the pool. If a wall of the house acts as a barrier on one side, be sure all doors leading to the pool have alarms that sound when opened. According to www.ezinearticles.com, fences and alarms are estimated to prevent 50 to 90 percent of child drownings. Make sure the fence is at least 4 feet high, with vertical slats close enough together a toddler cant squeeze through. It should have a self-closing, self-latching gate, with the latch out of reach of young children. Secure or remove steps to above ground pools. If a child goes missing always check the pool first. Introduce children to the water and teach safety rules. Children as young as six months can learn how to hold their breath. The YMCAis offering swimming classes during April and May, for children as young as six months old all the way up to adults. Call 382-9622 for more information.

Higginbotham stated that 13 of the originally 15 wells tested have come back negative, but on Tuesday the department of agriculture notified him of the possible contamination to the additional 13 homes. Most homes near the groves are served by city water, but some homes obtain water from private wells, according to Higginbotham, and only homes using the wells are effected. Each homeowner will be contacted by the health department to request permission to sample the wells. An investigation into the misapplication of the pesticide is being conducted by the Department of Agriculture, Higginbotham said. There is no indication that contamination has reached any well, but Higginbotham stated that in an abundance of caution, the Highlands County Health Department has contracted with Heartland Spring Water to deliver drinking water until water test results are complete.

Are you aware that out of 5,755 eligib le voters in Sebring only 424 bothered to v ote in the citys council elections on M arch 8? And dont feel smug you residents of A von Park or Lake Placid your t urnouts are just as pathetic. What is it with the people in this count y and country today? We claim to revere our founding f athers; we recite the Pledge of A llegiance before every public meeting; w e report neighbors who fly tattered A merican flags; we give our children p atriotic coloring books to fill with red, w hite and blue; we defend every criticism t hat America is not the best, greatest, m ost wonderful nation in the history of h uman kind and yet only 7 percent of e ligible voters could be bothered to vote t his last city election. What kind of patriotism is that? What k ind of example is that to set for our child ren? What kind of a thank you is that to t he men and women who have died d efending our right to vote? Now, to be fair to those who didnt v ote, it is true that voting takes time and e nergy. For example, one of our staff members made his way through the ordeal Tuesday. He had to drive to the polling place, of course, and that did take about five minutes of his time, not to mention expensive gasoline. Then he had to park, shut off the cars engine and walk about 25 feet to the door of the polling place, which took another minute and a half. He was able to save some energy and time at the entrance, however, because a deputized volunteer opened the door for him but then he did had to find the proper person with whom to check in, as voters are listed alphabetically and the list was divided between four volunteers sitting at one table. After selecting the correct volunteer, he had to sign his name, reach out for the ballot and its protective cover probably using another minute. Carrying that weight he then had to walk another 10 feet or so to a voting desk fortunately not an old-fashioned booth or he would have had the additional burden of pulling a curtain aside pick up a pen and color in three of four ovals. This last task was rather complicated, because he had to make sure he kept within the lines. Granted, he is skilled with a pen, so it took him only about 45 seconds someone less adept would probably need a full minute. Then he had to put the ballot inside the cover and carry both another 15 or so feet to the collection computer. Again, being fair, this was another moment of difficulty as the voter has to separate the ballot from the cover and insert the correct piece into the machine. Fortunately, election officials understand how complex that act is, and they have a volunteer right there to help the bewildered. From home to completed vote, the entire process took well under 12 minutes, and our colleague reports he did not have to bulk up on carbs or eat extra protein in order to accomplish his mission. But still, almost 12 minutes to actually vote. That is asking a lot of a citizen in our busy world especially because the act of voting does not include the time and effort it takes to decide which candidate to support. Which is why we propose an overdue change to the Constitution allow for the creation of professional voters. Of course these people would have to be trained and certified, and probably salaried as opposed to being paid by the hour. It would be their job to attend stump speeches, watch television commercials, follow news stories, read editorials, and listen to debates thereby freeing the rest of us from the drudgery of research too. We could call them Professional Citizens, give them fancy badges to wear, and assigned parking at the polls. That way we would have the time to do the real work of democracy protesting against the elected officials whom we cant be bothered to vote for or against.

The Irish need not apply in America all over again. Ireland, you see, is not doing so well. Prior to the global economic meltdown, its service industry soared as global companies took advantage of its welleducated, English-speaking citizens. Emboldened by its good fortune, the Irish government, and many of its citizens, carried on like Americans. They overborrowed and overspent. Ahousing bubble formed and burst spectacularly. Now Irelands unemployment rate is 13.5 percent. The high-paying service jobs have disappeared. And lots of well-educated Irish folks are fleeing their motherland yet again. But theyre not heading to America this time. During the Irish potato famine of the 1840s, hundreds of thousands of Irish immigrants settled here. They took jobs in mills and coal mines and along rails and waterways. Follow Americas waterways and rails and youll find many places where the Irish settled. My great-great-grandfather came over in the 1840s and settled in Pittsburgh. I dont know if he worked in the mills, but he probably did, and his son, my greatgrandfather, was a foreman in one. His son, my grandfather, became a banker. Today, one in four Americans can trace their heritage to Irelands rolling green hills. The Irish influence has benefited America. Bob Callahan, writing in Salon, says the melodies of the Irish fiddle were blended with the rhythms of African music to give birth to todays popular music. Irish vaudevillians, masters of knockabout physical comedy, influenced early Hollywood filmmaking and gave birth to the comic strip. But its the mischievousness of Irish wit that has most influenced American culture. Callahan says the hardboiled, darkly humorous, racetrack bitten language of the Irish had a tremendous influence on American language, particularly the words of brilliant, wisecracking Irish-Americans. Which reminds me of the one abo ut the Irish brewery worker who drown s in a vat of Guinness. His bes t friend visits the deceased mans wife to share the sad news. Tell me, did he at least go quickly? she asks him, crying. Not exactly, missus, says the mans best friend. Your husband got out of th e vat three times to use the bathroom. In my family, being Irish means laughing easily, neve r taking yourself too seriousl y, being cautious of getting stuck in the narrowness of your own point of view. Boy, America sure could use a fresh infusion of the Irish spirit but no luck o f the Irish this time. Its difficult for the new wave of Irish immigrants to get U.S. work visas now. W e dont have many jobs anyway. Thats why the Irish are flocking to Canada! According to irishCentral.com, attaining a one-year visa for Canada is much less complicated and more cost effective in comparison to the U.S. Unlike America, our friends to the north got thei r financial house in order and weathered the economic meltdown wonderfully. Canadas economy is going great guns. They are letting in twice as many skilled Irish immigrants as they did five year s ago. Ah, well, the least we Americans can do is have some Irish grace about our dire financial situation. Which reminds me of the time Paddy the fisherman died. His wife called the news paper to place his obituary. The newsman said the cost was $1 a word. I only have $2, said Mrs. Paddy. Just print Paddy died. The newsman, feeling sorry for her, gave her thre e extra words at no charge. Akind man you are, sh e said. Print me husbands obituary this way: Paddy died. Boat for sale.

Timothy Boulay SebringDeficits and deceit E ditor: Just as it was once said t hat all roads lead to Rome, it is now the conventional wisdom that all of our economic woes are attributable to the middle class, the working people of America. At state and local governmental levels, a wedge issue to divide the electorate has been advanced; the cost of salary, pensions, and other benefits owed to public employees and their unions, is the cause of deficits. Never mind the fact that these benefits were not future funded by the folks in charge; now it is the responsibility of the public employees, and government must repudiate these debts. Social security is not part of the federal budget since it is funded by a separate payroll tax. But conservatives in congress now point to Social Security as an unsustainable obligation, ignoring the fact that for years the social security trust fund was borrowed to fund other projects and that the debt created to pay back these fundsbacked by the full faith and credit of the United States is to be ignored. Increasing taxes on the most wealthy is apparently anathema. Still advancing the trickle down argument to protect the wealthy, the supposed job creators. But they have done nothing to create jobs of late but invest overseas. Ignoring the fact that the author of supply side economics has repudiated his own theory. Clearly, all the solutions for our economic troubles are to be solved by imposing upon the working classes; entitlement programs to be gutted, tax breaks for the most wealthy are sacrosanct. Union busting is the answer. Somehow, the penultimate line in William Jennings Bryans Cross of Gold speech seems apt, ...you shall not press down upon the brow of labor this crown of thorns. Randy Ludacer Lake Placid BouquetFiddle Show Barrage was great Editor: Saturday nights attraction at South Florida Community College was the Fiddle Show Barrage! I will say with enthusiasm that it lived up to its name. There were eight musicians five (I call them violinists, not fiddlers), two guitarists and a drummer. There were two specialties: One a bag pipe and the other a tar, a wind instrument I hadnt seen since I was in Cairo, Egypt during World War II. They were presented in a magnificently orchestrated manner. The drummer reminded me of Gene Krupa at his height. The violinists were masters of the art. Their music, though loud and fast as advertised, was well presented and a joy to listen to. Our party, a group of 14 folks from our mobile home park (Hammock Estates), have a standing date with any good presentator at the school. We proceed as a group and have seats together in the showroom. As we parked the car, we were riding with friends and started the long walk to the theatre. I had misgivings as to making it since I have had some heart trouble in the past. I made it into the entrance and into the foyer. Then I remembered that our tickets were for the balcony and steps before me were formidable. However the hand rails and carpeted stairs made the transit easy and we proceeded to our seats and the show. I have seen many violin presentations but this was the loudest and most moving show I have ever seen. Not a number was played that the performers were not moving at all times while playing the violins. They reminded me of the Andre Reiu Show on TVand at one time during the present show one of the violins did the same jump Rieu does in his show. It was a very pleasant evening and a credit to the school. Proof of their capability to get good performers into their theatre. Woodie Jackson Sebring

Endeavour is due to blast off April 19 on its final flight. The shuttle arrived at the pad last week.

On Tuesday morning, D eleon forwarded an e-mail t o the press outlining his i deas for how to manage the c ity. We are dealing with a diff icult situation, and challengi ng budget time, Deleon s aid in the e-mail. We have very capable d epartment heads; however, w e need to reestablish some u nity, and regain the city's o rganizational focus. The P olice, Fire and Public Works D epartment are working just f ine...city hall operations n eed to be re-examined and e valuated. I am committed to worki ng with everyone, his em ail continued. In the e-mail, Deleon laid o ut six priorities that he was i mmediately working t owards as interim city mana ger: Better communications a t all levels within the organi zation. 2. Look for cost reduct ions, and efficiencies in s ervice delivery. 3. Centralize City operat ions where possible. A C entralized operations model c ould bring in some savings b y removing replication of e fforts. 4. I would like to work w ith Council to develop a c ompensation system which w ill promote end of year b udgetary savings from u nspent budgeted funds. In e ssence, we would keep base p ay rates at the same levels; h owever, from possible and l ikely end of year budget savi ngs, Council could opt to s hare a small percentage (%) o f these savings with the C itys work force. I believe t his concept will promote a h igher level of consciousness a t all levels from department H eads to our field employees t o look for cost reductions, e fficiency, frugality, and v alue oriented decision maki ng. It would obviously be a C ouncil approved program if i mplemented. 5. For our annexation strate gy, we are currently r esearching our options on c reating a dependent i mprovement District under F S 189 which could help the C ity in the financing and c onstruction of utilities, d rainage and roads infras tructure into the unincorpor ated areas as we annex and e xpand our municipal bounda ries. Districts have more f lexibility when it comes to c onstructing and financing n ew infrastructure. I would l ike to leverage this flexibilit y to expand our corporate l imits. My previous 14 years o f employment were spent w orking for municipal D istricts, so I understand their purpose and role in helping us implement an annexation strategy. Again, any action would require Council approval. 6. I would also like to work closely with the County to develop an exclusive franchised utility territory within the unincorporated areas for the City. It only makes sense to establish our municipal foot print with regard to utilities service areas in the countys unincorporated service areas.

Members of the community s tressed that they felt Behrens w as doing fine as city manger. Since the time of the city m anager has arrived to date, w e have very good communic ations with the city manager. H e has taken the time to visit o ur projects and really get i nvolved in what is going on, s aid Larry Shoeman, execut ive director of the Avon Park H ousing Authority. We do not have a problem w ith communications and l ook forward to having a posi tive relationship with him a nd this council, Shoeman a dded. Former Mayor Tom M acklin spoke as the chair for t he citys planning and zoning c ommission and stated that he too had a good working relationship with Behrens. As your chair of your planning zoning commission, Mr. Behrens has been present at several meetings and has been responsive to our needs, Macklin said. He has come up with several ideas that resulted acceptable compromises and his experience and his calming demeanor was very valuable. As far as the communications, he has been very responsive and contacted the parties who needed to be involved. Warren West, representing the fire department, also expressed that his department was happy with the work Behrens was doing. We asked the city manager to form a committee for hiring a fire chief. We wished to have a large pool of applicants. He has been responsive to our needs, West said. After the motion was made, City Attorney Buhr directed the council towards a resolution that he had prepared before the meeting. In anticipation of this motion, I have put together a resolution because I thought this was going to come up, Buhr said. Buhr explained to the council that to adopt a motion to draft a resolution, as per the city charter and Behrenscontract. The council passed a second motion to adopt the resolution, and then moved on to selecting an interim city manager. Buhr pointed out again that the charter requires the city clerk to be the interim manager, but Cheryl Tietjen, who currently holds that position, declined the job. Miller then nominated Public Works Director Julian Deleon to take the position, and the vote was unanimous. Behrens has five days to sign a waiver of further liability against the city in order to get three months of severance pay. Continued from page 1A Continued from page 1A Behrens fired by AP council Deleon already has plan in place no injuries or damage to report. There were 12 homes that were saved and the homeowners used Firewise techniques, Yunas wrote in her press release. Firewise tips really helped both wildland and structural firefighters save homes in Wildland Urban Interface. The Division of Forestry used a bulldozer to cut a fire line all the way around the fire and Highlands County firefighters will be putting out hot spots as needed. Residents will continue to see smoldering and smoke for a while (until) either the fire burns up to the fire lines or a significant rainfall event occurs, Yunas wrote. Firewise techniques involve building a safe area around homes that are in or near wooded areas. Tips include Create a defensible space of buffer zone of at least 30 feet around your home. Keep your grass mowed. Rake leaves and needles and disposes of them properly. Thin trees limbs to create a break between tree crowns in the yard and those in the surrounding forest. Remove any branches that overhand or touch your roof. Clear a 10 foot area around barbecue grills and do not leave them unatten ded. Place stove, chimn ey and barbecue grill ashes in a metal bucket, soak in wat er for two days, then bury in the soil. Store gasoline, oi ly rags and other flammab le materials in approved safe ty cans and place cans in a sa fe place away from buildings Stack firewood at lea st 100 feet from your home or as far away as possible. Be sure your garag e, shed or other storage are as are neat enough to allow a firefighter to enter in fu ll gear with a hose.

At the Lake Placid regular t own council meeting M onday night, the council m ade it clear it was aware of t hose concerns by passing a r esolution meant to allay t hem. In exchange for taking o ver the utilities, the town a grees that it will not initia te annexation proceedings i nvolving the residential portions of Tomoka Heights development and specifically waives any right which it has or may have to commence annexation proceedings, the resolution said. The resolution does say the homeowners of Tomoka Heights, through their association, may seek annexation by lawful vote. In addition, the town said that after a phase-in period, customers would be charged the same utility rates as residential customers within the Town of Lake Placid receiving equal utility service. Gary Freeman, director of utilities for Lake Placid, said Tuesday morning that overall the towns current rates are lower than either of the two private utilities, but that a rate study would be done in the future. He added that after the systems were looped together rates would go down due to economies of scale. There will be three times the number of customers, he said. The more customers, the more the costs spread out. County engineer Ramon Gavarrete wants interested parties unable to attend the meeting to know they may write to the county commission at 600 S.

Its not just archaeology theyre learning h ere, its also physics, OSullivan said. The s tudents were given one set of throwing sticks s imilar to the atlatl and asked to throw it. M ost of the students were unable to throw v ery far. After many tries OOSullivan d emonstrated the difference between it and t he atlatl. It allows the throwers more force and less energy is used with the atlatl, explained OSullivan. The ninth graders all spent several minutes launching the atlatl into the green in front of the parking lot of the high school. Theyre using all theyve learned in other classrooms here, and its exciting to them. Some of them are able to look at something and read it and retain it, but not many of them. With things like this the students learn so much more and are able to connect it with everything else, said Rankhorn. For more information, visit www.flpublicarchaeology.org.

Since rainfall amounts will generally remain moderate, widespread new ooding problems are not anticipated. However, isolated issues may arise. The southern extent of this storm system will bring a bit of rain to the eastern Carolinas. Otherwise, an area of high pressure will return dry conditions to the Southeast. Circulation around the back side of this high will pump warm air from the Southwest. U.S. Cities National Forecast for March 16Shown are noon postions of weather systems and precipitation.

By BARRYFOSTER Special to the News-SunSEBRING Race fever is gearing up for the 59th running of the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida. Officials at the American Le Mans Series are looking at one of the largest fields in better than a decade for their opener and officials of the Sebring International Raceway are trying to find spaces for the nearly 60 cars that have registered for the event. Much of that comes due to the inclusion of those interested in the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup, with some of the top teams in Europe planning to compete here in Sebring. Alook at the line-up for the prototypes is a whos who of road racing. Defending Sebring champs Peugeot Team Total will be back at the circuit, but with a completely new car. They will debut the new Peugeot 908, although the speed and driver skill will be there, questions remain as to whether a new car will be able to weather Sebrings rough circuit. Peugeot will be challenged by Audi Sport Team Joest, who sat out last years race. For the 2011 edition Audi will field an R15++. Fans had hoped to see the new R18 but that apparently is not to be. While questions remain about the Audis older model the cars reliability already is 12 Hour tested. Also challenging for an overall win will be Highcroft Racing. The defending ALMS LMPchamps Honda Performance Development ARX-01e LMP1 made its debut literally days before the race. The new car features a heavily revised aerodynamic and suspension package design and built by HPDs partner, Wirth Research. Muscle Milk, who took the checkers in LMP2 last year with a Porsche Spyder, now have switched to the Aston Martin DBR1 run at Sebring last year as a factory entry. Drivers Klaus Graf and Greg Pickett turned in blistering times at the ALMS Winter Test. They will be joined by Sebring veteran Lucas Luhr in the cockpit for the 12 Hours. Dyson Racing returns for a third year with their Mazda powered Lola Coupe sporting the new G-OILlivery with additional signage featuring ModSpace and Constructcorps. Joining the team is Jay Cochran, partnering Chris Dyson and Guy Smith in the #16 G-OILentry. From across the pond comes a cadre of Le Mans prototypes that will provide an almost incalucuable mix to the competition. For instance, French privateers and European Le Mans Series champions Team ORECA-Matmut decided to field a Peugeot 908 HDi FAP. The team last raced in Sebring in 2000 when they scored a 1-2 class finish with a pair of Dodge Vipers Rebellion Racing will again race with a Lola Coupe in the premier LMP1 category but will switch from Rebellion-badged Judd engines used in 2010 to Toyota powerplants. They will be the exclusive partner of the Japanese marque in the premier category of endurance racing. Henri Pescolaro returns to Sebring in force in the form of Oak Racing. The French squad is seeking to enter a brace of 3.4-litre OAKPescarolo-Judd LMP1 prototypes and a 3.6-litre OAKPescarolo-Judd V8 car in t he Intercontinental Le Ma ns Cup. That ambitious effort w ill put no fewer than thr ee Pescalaro Judds on the trac k, two in LMP1 and one in LMP2. In LMP2 theres compe tition from Signature Racin g. Racing under the SignaTe ch name, they have acquir ed NISMO tuned, Zyt ek Manufactured VK45 V 8 Nissan engines to push the ir Oreca3 cars around the hi storic circuit. Following a record-settin g season for Level 5 Motorsports the team wo n five events en route to t he overall LMPC title, the tea m will put a pair of Honda/Lo la LMP2 cars on the grid for t he ILMC opener at Sebring. Finally, LNTRacing w ill bring a Radical SR9-IE S Nissan Ginetta to the LMP 2 division for Sebring. They made their debut du ring the Winter Test, but we re not able to turn many laps.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK It had b een nearly a month since t he South Florida C ommunity College baseb all team had tasted defeat Friday, Feb. 18, to be e xact, in a 9-2 loss a t Palm Beach State C ollege. Since then, howe ver, the Panthers h ave been on an u nprecedented roll, w inning 14 straight t hrough Saturdays 4 -3 win at the State C ollege of Florida in B radenton. Its the biggest streak s ince Ive been here, h ead coach Rick Hitt said. And I dont recall seeing a nything in our records t hat was longer. But all good things m ust come to an end and t hings came crashing d own in a 12-2 loss in the m iddle game of the threeg ame set with the Manatees Monday night. We didnt deserve to win tonight, Hitt said. We had talked about responding to Saturdays game. They are a talented club and you want to let a sleeping giant lie. That the Panthers did relatively well early on, as starting pitcher Adam Quiles set down the defending state champs in order in the first. But control problems allowed a lead-off walk to start the second and falling behind in the count to BJ Zimmerman, Quiles left one a little too nice for a single to right to put runners on the corners. Achopped grounder to short looked to be the start of a double play, but the toss to second found turf, bringing a run in and keeping two runners on.

The Panther offense did s ee two hits in the bottom of t he second, singles from Kyle N ewton and Brett Clements, b ut they were left stranded a nd the team would not see a nother hit until the seventh. SCF again loaded the bases i n the third, but Quiles again w orked his way out of it. Asimilar scenario came a bout again in the fifth with L .B. Dantzler leading off w ith a double down the firstb ase line and a one-out walk t o Bryant Elliott had two on. Zimmerman flew out to c enter and a fly to short right l ooked to again keep the M anatees off the board. But the pop-up dropped, bringing Dantzler in and things soon took a turn for the worst. Consecutive hit batters loaded the bases and brought a run in before a Paul Stortini single brought two in for a 50 lead with reliever Richard Whiteleather getting out of the inning with a strike out of Dantzler. Things snowballed from there in the sixth as seven runs came in on four hits, three walks and an error for a 12-0 margin. The Panther bats finally saw some life in the bottom of the seventh with Newton singling to lead off and Clements ripping an RBI double into the right-field corner. Sam Morgan followed with a double down the third-base line to bring Clements home, but that would be that as the Manatees got out of the inning and ended the game early on the 10-run rule. Now 1-1 in Suncoast Conference play, SFCC looks to take the rubber game of the three-game series tonight in Bradenton. We didnt respond be performance tonight, Hitt said.

Box 1538, Gastonia, NC 28053 or send an e-mail to mdutton@gastongazette.com The drivers change, but the number (18) remains the same in the Camping World Truck Series. Kasey Kahne, in the Toyota usually driven by Kyle Busch, won at Darlington. At the moment, Tony Stewart has 39 career Sprint Cup victories and 39 second-place nishes. The racing at Bristol Motor Speedway has changed a bit in recent years. Nowadays passes occur without bumps sometimes. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is popular everywhere, but nowhere is his support more apparent than at Bristol. What changes from the end of one season to the start of the next? Not much if youre Carl Edwards. Led by Edwards, the resurgence of Fords Cup teams is a major development. The Busch brothers have combined to win nine times at Bristol. Older brother Kurt has won ve of the brothers nine, but Kyle has captured three of the past four races at BMS. The Nationwide and Camping World Truck series still await their rst winners with driver points. All races to date have been won by drivers declared to Cup. The rst three races have provided an upbeat start to the season. For the rst time in a while, NASCAR appears to be gaining momentum. The new points system makes bad nishes more difcult to overcome. Its still a bit early to dismiss the Chase chances of 31st-place Jeff Burton, but its no longer too early to be worried. Whos hot: In Kasey Kahnes career, he has raced four times in the Camping World Truck Series ... and won three times. ... In three races, Carl Edwards already has a rst and a second. Whos not: Only one driver, Mark Martin in 2009, has been outside the top 30 after three races and made the Chase. ... Jeff Burton is currently tied for 31st. Kyle Busch is coming off a 38th in Las Vegas. Kahne V E R S U SThe only poor performance of the season to date for Edwards was at Phoenix, where his Ford was wrecked by Buschs Toyota. Busch apologized profusely, taking the blame. If a race oh, maybe, one at Bristol comes down to a battle between the two drivers, it should be worth watching. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: Edwards appreciates Buschs apology, but that doesnt make the matter resolved.KYLE BUSCH VS. CARL EDWARDSBy Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekOne of the seasons significant developments, at least to date, is the performance of Ford teams. Trevor Bayne and Carl Edwards have piloted Fords to victories in two of the first three Sprint Cup races. Right now, as I look at our program, except for the judgments we made and running over things on the race track, our (Roush Fenway) Fords have never run better, said owner Jack Roush. I cant wait to see how things unfold. Im really excited about what we have in front of us. Roush Fenway is the centerpiece of Fords NASCAR operation, providing engines, cars and other assistance to the Wood Brothers (Bayne) and Richard Petty Motorsports. Success can be fleeting, of course. It is way too early to be thinking championship, added Roush. (At) one of the two races before Homestead in the fall, I encouraged everyone to be as conservative as we might be if it were in our grasp. We cant make a misstep and keep our eye on the ball. We cant squander the opportunity we have now that were running better than we did last year. Comedian, huh? After winning on March 6 in Las Vegas, Edwards was asked if he had any comments for the Spanish followers of NASCAR. Amid laughter, Edwards said something roughly equivalent to this: Buenos dias, gracias, me coche is muy rapido and much denero today. I took a lot of Spanish, folks, but I did not pay attention. Its the truck, too Kyle Buschs No. 18 Toyota was fast in the Too Tough to Tame 200, Darlingtons Camping World Truck Series race, even though Busch was taking advantage of the Sprint Cup off week to vacation. Kasey Kahne, substituting for Busch, won for the third time in four career Truck starts. Busch won the seasons second race at Phoenix. Change is no change In announcing the format for the Sprint All-Star Race, scheduled for May 21 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, track president Marcus Smith said, The big change is that theres not going to be a change. Hmm. Early yet In 2000, the (then Winston) Cup season opened with 10 different drivers winning the first 10 races. So far, different drivers Trevor Bayne, Jeff Gordon and Carl Edwards have won the first three races. It is, however, the first time a season opened without a repeat winner in the first three races since 2007. FdNASCARtiidi Success breeds optimism for 2011 Ford season By Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekTodd Bodine is the reigning champion of the Camping World Truck Series. In the past six seasons, he has won two championships and never finished lower than fourth in the season standings. Though he is coming off a third-place finish at Darlington Raceway, Bodine faces challenges in defending his 2010 championship. It remains a struggle to secure enough sponsorship for his Germain Racing Toyota. Were not even close to set, said Bodine. Tire Kingdom ... I think theyre going to do four more (races). Valvolines going to do a couple, and now we have one with Georgia Boot. Weve still got a lot of races that we need to get sponsorship for. Its going to get better. I keep saying that since the end of last year, but its going to get better. I think, by the end of the season, youre going to see a lot of things happening with sponsors, and a lot of these corporations are going to start cutting loose with some of their marketing money and swinging it our way. Bodine, 47, is the youngest of three racing brothers. Unlike Geoff and Brett, Todd has never won at the Sprint Cup level, though he has finished in the top five seven times. With 21 career Truck victories, Bodine ranks fifth all-time. So far, our luck has just been horrible, said Bodine of the current season to date. Our philosophy is to go every week, do the best we can and what happens, happens. You cant control everything. Were pleased with our performance. The state of the series is pretty obvious. Weve got probably the best field of trucks that weve ever seen in the history of the series, and we have a lot of younger kids coming in. The experience level may be down a little bit, but weve got a lot of kids who have a lot of talent and a lot of future and a lot of promise. The state of the series is strong really strong. The winners of the seasons first three races Michael Waltrip, Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne do not compete for the championship. Bodine takes little consolation in that. Were here to win, not to finish second, he said.Bodine Staying On Top Of TrucksSponsorship, competition are a few obstacles for reigning champJohn Clark/NASCAR This WeekThough he hasnt won at the Sprint Cup level, Todd Bodine has mastered the Camping World Truck Series. The youngest of three racing brothers (Geoff and Brett), the 47-year-old reigning champion has won two championships and has never finished lower tha n fourth in the season standings.

Kyle Busch Edwards Ratings and Selling Sex?This Week welcomes letters to the editor, but please be aware that we have room for only a few each week. Well do our best to select the best, but individual replies are impossible due to the bulk of mail received. Please do not send stamped and self-addressed envelopes with your letters, which should be addressed to: NASCAR This Week, The Gaston Gazette, P.O. Box 1538, Gastonia, N.C. 28053. Dear NASCAR This Week, I am a little curious about how NASCAR can forbid a cigarette company, liquor company and anything pertaining to a gun business/company from putting a sponsorship on any car, but they will allow a sponsorship that sells sex. If Danica Patrick has to put out a commercial like that to promote herself, I have very little respect for her, and I am sure she does not care what I think, but I am hoping that there are some people who do care. With all the sex crimes that happen, especially to women, you should all be ashamed. I would rather see the cigarette, liquor and gun companies name on a car than GoDaddy with that type of sales pitch. Rita Dyke Grand Haven, Mich. You certainly have every right to take offense at any advertisement, but GoDaddy doesnt sell sex. It sells websites. Its far from the only company to use a sexy message in advertising. The bans to which you refer are not in effect. Liquor sponsorships have become particularly common in recent years. Dear NASCAR This Week, I have been following NASCAR racing for more than 50 years, and the Twin 150s (qualifying races at Daytona) were the most boring races I have ever seen. I predict low TV ratings and more lack on interest in NASCAR. Its time (Sprint Cup director) John Darby and his cronies get it right. The way the races looked they might as well give half the field a tow bar, let them find a partner, hook em up, and race. Even better, make the race track a figure eight. It aint your fathers Daytona 500. Don Bagwell Asheville, N.C. Thanks for letting us know how you feel, Don. Everything changes after Daytona, and everyone will move on to different issues once the restrictor plates are removed.

This system of health care is used extensively by one-quarter of the worlds population residing in Asia, and is rapidly growing in popularity in the West. Oriental medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the biochemical model of Western medicine.AcupunctureAcupuncture is the 5000 year old Chinese system of natural healing. Fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points of the body to restore a balanced flow of energy.

DearAbby: I am 67 and m y roommate is 62. He and I c ould be out dating every n ight of the week. We get calls h ere like it is a fraternity h ouse. I think its because we k now how to treat women. I hear other men our age c omplain they cant get a date o r find the right woman. T hey say they are lonely, a lways being used, etc. I tell t hem: Get a life. Think of s omeone besides yourself. My buddy and I think in t erms of what would please t he lady. Other guys think a r omantic date is grabbing a b ite at a fast-food restaurant, r enting a violent movie, or f lopping at the womans house a nd falling asleep after shes m ade him a home-cooked m eal. I say: Learn to dance, g et some new clothes, ask a w oman what her interests are. I did it, and Ive learned to e njoy art shows, plays, visiting f lea markets, etc. Alady once told me, You d ont need a woman. You are a great cook, and you iron bett er than I do. My answer to h er was, Those are not the t hings I need a lady for. So, Abby, my advice to l onely old men is this: Get y our act together. As Auntie M ame said, Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death. Having a Peach of a Time in Georgia DearHaving a Peach: Thank you for your enlightened philosophy. My crystal ball tells me that neither you nor your buddy will ever be starving for food at the banquet of life or attention and affection, either. DearAbby: What do you do when your future in-laws tell other relatives that they intend to ruin your upcoming wedding? They are upset because they were not included in the wedding party. My future mother-in-law let it be known shes dressing up like a hooker. I have family members who are police officers coming to the wedding. The only idea I can come up with to prevent it is to ask them to guard the door of the church, and if need be, escort these unruly people out before they can raise a ruckus. As you might have gathered, my fiances parents dont want me to marry their son. On the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown DearOn the Verge: Take a deep breath and talk to your fiance about eloping. Once your in-laws accept the fact that the knot has already been tied, you can host a lovely reception. When the time comes, give them the benefit of the doubt and assume theyll behave themselves. Use the police only as a last resort, but if it comes to that, cross your fingers and hope your mother-inlaw solicits one of them. DearAbby: At a cocktail party last night, the hostess handed me a glass of wine. When I started to take a sip, I noticed the glass was filthy. My immediate reaction was, Alcohol kills germs. But the thought of putting the glass to my mouth was distasteful, so I told her the wine was too sweet for my taste. She then handed me another glass of wine, and that one was as dirty as the first. How should I have handled it? Not Crystal Clear in Wisconsin DearNot Crystal Clear: The first time it happened, you should have said, Oops! This glass didnt make it through the dishwasher and returned it to your hostess. When it happened again, you should have said, ... this one, too. Then you should have asked for something you could drink from the original container. Sensible person that you are, Im sure you didnt partake of the hors doeuvres, and wont be partying there again. Right? Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Good advice for everyone teens to seniors is in The Anger in All of Us and How to Deal With It.

(Postage is included). I have been going through Broccoli Block. You know, when you forget to turn on the veggies and you have your dinner ready to go but the veggies are sitting on the stovetop, cold, raw and just waiting for someone to turn them on and get them cooked? Why is that? I think the reason is we are zooming around the kitchen, multitasking as we should be and for me anyway, the stove isnt where my prep area is (its to my back) and I just simply forget. Not always, but sometimes. It ticks me off. Ive been cooking for a long time and to forget to turn on the veggies is outside of my realm of thinking, or so I thought. Ive thought about the old adage, out of sight, out of mind and thought, thats the ticket. So Ive taken to moving my prepped veggies (pot and all) and putting it on the countertop where I am preparing the evening meal. Now its in my line of vision and I can still stay preoccupied with all the stuff I was so preoccupied with before, but now I won?t forget to turn on the veggies. If youre having Broccoli Block, maybe you want to fix it too, by putting whatever it is youre forgetting, right in the line of fire, so you see it and remember to do it. Part of getting dinner on the table every night is getting all the components ready at the same time. Doesnt take rocket science, but you do have to think about it. Heres a recipe to make your next dinner a success, especially if youve got summer heat to deal with:Pasta Salad with White BeansServes 6 1 (16 ounce) package fusilli pasta 1 cup canned white beans, drained and rinsed 5 ounces smoked turkey orregularham, chopped (oromit) 4 plum tomatoes, chopped 1 small red bell pepper, seeded, deribbed and cut in long, thin slices 10 Kalamata olives, pitted and halved (oruse black olives) 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, choppedEasy Balsamic Vinaigrette1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 clove garlic, pressed 1/2 cup olive oil Salt and pepperto taste Cook pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, make dressing (see below). Drain cooked pasta, rinse under cold water and set aside. In a large bowl, combine remaining salad ingredients add the pasta, vinaigrette an d toss lightly to mix. Dressing: Mix all ingredi ents together, whisking the olive oil in gradually at the end, until dressing is slightl y thickened. Season with salt and pepper.

LIVING 12B PAGE News-Sun Wednesday, March 16, 2011 FAMILYFEATURES S pring is full of celebrations and rich traditions that bring the family around the table for special meals. Asavory leg of lamb or a dish with succulent lamb loin chops is a delicious way to enjoy a flavorful meal, no matter the occasion. American lamb pairs beautifully with a variety of wines. Wineries such as Kendall-Jackson have a wide selection of wines that bring out lambs mild, meaty flavor and make it even more irresistible. TipsforRoastingLambnAbone-in leg of lamb cooks faster than a boneless leg of lamb. Use a good meat thermometer to determine doneness: Rare135F Medium Rare145F Medium160FnYou can sear the lamb roast first in a hot 450F oven for 15 minutes to seal in the juices and then reduce oven temp to 325F and continue roasting for approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until internal temperature reaches 5 to 10 degrees less than your desired temperature. nRemove roast from oven and let rest for 20 minutes before serving. This allows the meats juices to settle and make carving easier. (As the meat rests, the internal temperature will rise 5 to 10 degrees.)nCarve the roast against the grain so the meat will be tender. Anaturally tender cut like leg should be sliced about one half inch thick. To order a free Spring Celebrations American Lamb cook booklet, visit www.americanlamb.com. ChoosingtheRightWinenCOMPLEMENT. Similarly flavored foods and wines complement each other. Example: Citrus-based sauce and a lemony, lightly oaked Chardonnay (such as Kendall-Jackson Avant Chardonnay or Chablis from the Burgundy region of France). Example: Mushrooms with the earthy flavors of Pinot Noir.nCONTRAST. Contrasting flavors balance each other. Example: Spicy foods and sweet wines, such as Thai food and an off-dry Riesling. Example: Salty foods and crisp, high-acid wines such as Sauvignon Blanc or Champagne.nMATCH the TENOR. Match a foods weight and intensity to similar elements in wine. Example: Delicately flavored foods call for delicate varieties of wine, such as Pinot Gris or Sauvignon Blanc. Example: Weighty textures and intense flavors are a better match for more powerful wines, such as matching herb-crusted roast lamb with a robust Syrah or Merlot.
