By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Despite a crowd that seemed larger than previous years, this year's 59th running of the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring was relatively calm and probably won't set an attendance record. Despite large numbers of fans that had organizers restricting the number of cars allowed to enter the Raceway and a week of nearly perfect weather, spectators were pretty calm. According to Highlands County Sheriff's Office Capt. J.P. Fane, Race fans and party-seekers were "fairly well behaved." No arrests were made on Wednesday or Thursday. Friday and Saturday,, 24 people were arrested, including a handful of Highlands County residents. Most of the charges were for underage drinking or for misdemeanor possession of marijuana charges. "From a security standpoint, it was one of the best years we've had," Fane said. As for the turnout at Sebring International Raceway, the numbers were big but Raceway President Tres Stephenson does not expect it to be a record-breaking year. "It's going to be a couple days before we have the exact numbers," Stephenson said Tuesday. "It won't be disappointing, but it probably won't be record breaking." The record turnout was in 2002. According to the Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce, more than 125,000 were in attendance for that year.

The county wanted to move forwa rd with a fast track of putting together a pl an in order to meet budget deadlines for t he upcoming fiscal year. On Feb. 15, the county's Director of Solid Waste, Ramon Gavarrete, w as tasked by the board to take a prelimina ry look at a request for proposal (RFP) f or county-wide curbside recycling, he said. Gavarrete decided, along with direction from County Administrator Rick Helms, to hire Kessler Consulting, Inc. to do a preliminary analysis of the county position for a fee not to exce ed $8,800. Mitch Kessler, president of Kessl er Consulting, Inc., told the commissione rs that he would advise approaching Choi ce Environmental (which currently has t he county's regular garbage contract) first in order to get in writing what they a re offering to get the materials hauled. Kessler also advised that the county sit down with the municipalities to discu ss their needs and level of participatio n before progressing. "Based on the results of those (mee tings) you can understand the scope an d from that you can develop an RFP ," Kessler told the commissioners.

"The city of Avon Park has become a communist city and ruled by dictators. Employees and citizens are victims of (bullies)," stated an e-mail from citizen activist Patricia Austin dated Sunday. Austin's e-mail stressed that Avon Park, known as the City of Charm, is now the "City of Hell." "It has become so bad, it's time to even change its name. It has such a bad name, we are ashamed to call it Avon Park any longer," Austin wrote in her e-mail.

The "World Vision 30 Hour Famine" is a country wide day of fasting put together by the World Vision organization. The organization works with families, children and communities to help identify and take on the issues that cause poverty. The Christian ministry is based out of Washington and reaches out to every corner of the United States to reveal the startling statistics of poverty and hunger and teach everyone how they can do their part to help make a difference. According to a World Vision study, one child dies every 10 seconds form hunger related issues. Since the beginning of the recession (December of 2007) hunger and food insecurity has risen by 39 percent and with the recent food price increase, the numbers could easily become higher.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Except for Robert Summers, the city council meeting room had no audience Monday night as the Local Planning Agency reviewed the town's proposed fence policy. The policy is part of the Land Development Code of Lake Placid. It will not be a town ordinance, although it must be approved by the town council. Writing a code for fencing has been underway for some time. The LPAcreated a rough draft with town planner Susie Bushans, who did the actual writing. The draft was sent to the town council, which made its own recommendations. Monday night, the LPA reviewed the revised policy with Bushans. The agency members were in agreement regarding the major stipulations, but because a few definitions were changed, the policy will return to the LPAat its meeting in April, and then be sent to the council for public hearings and adoption. Work on the document Monday proceeded quietly as Bushans went through it section by section. There was a written explanation for every change from the first draft. LPAChair Hoz Compton said the agency wanted to develop a policy by consensus, and thanked Bushans for her step by step approach. It was agreed that issues dealing with hedges and landscaping should be made separate from fence policy. Owners using land for agriculture were a subject of discussion. The concerns revolved around possible conflicts as the town grows and lots become bigger, with the people living on them wanting to raise crops or chickens, a steer, or other type of livestock. It was agreed that farmers and ranchers, having been an integral part of Highlands County and here before anyone else, should have the privilege of not having to get permits in order to put up agricultural fencing. It was also agreed that barbed wire is a legitimate choice for a farmer. "It's meant to keep cows in, not people out," Compton said.

(From left) Ed Oxer, new member Ken LeBlanc, Chair Hoz Compton, Town Clerk Arlene Tuck and Jack Edgemon. Here are the major points included in the proposed fencing sections of the Land development Code of Lake Placid: 1) The word fence is defined as "any permanent partition or barrier (excluding retaining walls, hedges or plant material) more than 12 inches in height from the natural grade ... bordering or parallel to and within 5 feet of a lot line that in whole or in part defines the boundaries of said lot." Barriers within a lot, that do not define a border are not to be considered fences and will not need to be permitted. 2) All swimming pools will be fenced, residential pools at a 4foot minimum. 3) No fences or walls may prevent natural drainage or water runoff. 4) A building permit for a fee is required prior to any fencing construction, replacement, extension, or alteration except for agricultural fencing in an agricultural zone. 5) The property owner is The rules See FENCE, page 6A See RULES, page 6A By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Work is already well underway for Sebring's Centennial Celebration in 2012. Actually the year will be filled with special events, with the major birthday festivities taking place the week of Oct. 13-21. Awide array of individuals, organizations, churches and agencies are planning the celebrations. The Sebring Historical Society is one of the leaders. In addition to planning, the society is writing and publishing a book called "The One Hundred Years of Sebring." The volume, modeled after a book published in honor of Sebring's 75th birthday, will contain accounts of historical events, social trends and economic progress, as well as stories of residents over the years, including business men, civic leader s, teachers and principal s, pastors, and elected off icials. The goal is to load t he pages with information an d photographs. Carole Goad, Sebring 's archivist, asks individua ls who might not percei ve their own historical worth iness to be open when som eone calls and asks for an interview. She also hopes the com munity will support t he book in other ways b y buying and reading it, of course, but also by adverti sing in it. Straight up business a ds are welcome, but Go ad hopes to attract more histo rical type contributions. For example, she hop es families use the opportuni ty to pay tribute to earlier ge nerations, and that busines ses, civic organizations an d social clubs tell their ow n histories, or simply wi sh Sebring's centennial history being written See BOOK, page 6A RPAC meets ThursdaySEBRING There will be an RPAC (Recreation and Parks Advisory Committee) meeting at 2 p.m. Thursday in the Sports Complex, Concession Building at 216 Sheriff's Tower Road.

Programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and welfare are the only things keeping some Americans just at the poverty line and just above the hardships of third-world countries and starving citizens. However, according to Feeding America foundation, 1 in 4 children in the United States still goes to bed hungry almost every night. Community Bible Church Youth Pastor Jeremy Hurd feels that those numbers are completely unacceptable. Hurd understands and recognizes the issues that are going on in the world today, but outside of the devastating earthquake and tsunamis, Hurd hopes to do good work away from those spotlights. "By going without food, they get a taste of what the world's poorest children and families face every day," explained Hurd. "Love Hungry" is the theme for the fast for this year and marks the project's sixth year. Students raised funds prior to the weekend's famine. Students have learned that $30 can provide not only food but other care and services for underprivileged youth througho ut the world. The famine began Frid ay at 6 p.m. and continu ed until Saturday evening. A total of 12 students were in involved in the projec t, most of whom were retur ning for another year. "The kids were hung ry you know, but they we re more focused on servin g that day," said Hur d. Students not only fast ed throughout the day th ey also spent the day workin g on a community servi ce project. "They worked with Ne w Testament Mission in Sebring and served food a ll day," Hurd explained. Atotal of $1,100 w as raised through the fami ne project and the group a ll agreed to send the money to support children in Haiti. "The money will go to three children.

A12-foot-deep trench lies p arallel to the shore, the r esult of dredging years ago. B y 2008, drought had r educed the lake so the t rench, once safely out in d eeper water, was now a s hort distance off shore in w ading depth. That continues to be the c ase. The young man who d rowned, however, did not do s o because he was taken by s urprise. In fact he had been h aving fun swimming over t he trench, got a cramp and s ank. Despite efforts by many s wimmers and emergency p ersonnel his body wasn't r ecovered for a half an hour. Naturally, it was a shocki ng tragedy. To be safe, the c ity banned swimming until a s olution could be found. It turned out that filling in t he trench would be difficult a nd very expensive, which is why we do not advocate that solution. But the decision to wait until nature corrected the problem by raining enough to increase the lake's depth has now dragged on for almost three years. We think keeping the beach closed all this time is an overreaction, and a terrible waste of a wonderful resource. Triathlon swimmers, after all, have managed to navigate the area without anyone dying. Water is always dangerous. Hundreds of young children drown every year, most in their own home pools. One child here in Sebring remained in critical condition as of Monday after being found in the family pool. Other local children have also drowned or been disabled for life. But are we going to ban swimming pools? Much as we might like, we cannot wrap all the sharp edges of this world in foam. At some point we individuals need to take responsibility for our own safety and behave sensibly. Proper notice danger signs and anchored buoys should be enough of a warning.

There was plenty of passionate poppycock on the House floor Thursday, as members debated the Republicans' "emergency" bill to eliminate funding for National Public Radio. Although the bill passed, as did a proposal last month to defund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, neither measure will advance beyond the House chamber. And while most of the arguments from both sides tap-danced around the issues, a level-headed reassessment of federal spending for public TVand radio is overdue. Republicans rushed to judgment to take advantage of NPR's recent spate of bad publicity the latest incident involving nasty cracks about conservatives by NPR's chief fundraiser, Ron Schiller, recorded in a hidden-camera sting. Schiller was appropriately asked to leave NPR, as was his boss. But the secret video proves nothing about NPR as an organization, nor does Schiller's behavior qualify as grounds to defund an operation that serves some 27 million listeners a week. The real issues regarding NPR are straightforward. Republicans don't like spending taxpayer money on what many perceive as a liberal-leaning network, when the "private sector" is doing such a smashing job of promoting conservative views on commercial radio. Democrats believe the money is well spent, considering the pounding they are taking from Fox News and conservative broadcasters like Rush Limbaugh. As Democrats see it, NPR need not be liberal; the absence of overt conservatism is sufficient. Thursday's floor show in the House was risible. Republican Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee said with a straight face that defunding NPR would encourage more hiring by forcing rural stations to create new local programming. She went so far as to list 17 different jobs needed to produce a single radio show staffing levels that didn't exist even in radio's heyday decades ago. Democrat Anthony Weiner of New York spent an embarrassing two minutes delivering a standup comedy routine about how Republicans hoped to solve the economic crisis by destroying the NPR series "Car Talk" as if that was the point, which it wasn't. Republican Leader Eric Canto r of Virginia inched closer to the truth, as he sees it, by charging NPR wit h "advocating one ideology" and "veering far from what people want to (hear)." That's not true about NPR or the public with 69 percen t of Americans favoring fede ral funding of public radio. Across the aisle, Steve Israel, head of the Democrats'Congressional Campaign Committee, wrote, "If the Republicans had their way, we'd only be left with the likes of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin to dominate the airwaves." That's horribly misguided, because it suggests that NPR's mission is to defuse the message of conservative broadcasters, o r to present the "other side" o f political controversies, whi ch it is not. The real question, perhap s better left for a time when a semblance of bipartisanship returns to Capitol Hill, is whether the public is best served by federal involvement in broadcasting. When the Corporation for Public Broadcasting was created b y Congress in 1967, the medi a landscape was dramatically different. Back then, a bette r case could be made for pro viding quality governmentsupported radio and TV, especially in rural areas. In the digital age, that's not really necessary. It's worth noting that CSPAN, an arm of the cableTVindustry that receives n o taxpayer funds, provides th e most fair and well-produce d coverage of government imaginable. The explosive growth of the Internet, alon g with cable and satellite systems, make the need for pu blic TVand radio less clear cut. Media operate best without government meddling and, in this day and age, without taxpayer money. Although the latest attempt to defund NPR wil l not succeed, the House debate alone will apply unreasonable pressure to th e workings of the network that, at most, gets only 10 percent of its revenue from taxpayers. Is it worth it? Even disgraced NPR fund raiser Ron Schiller concede d, "it is very clear that we would be better off in the long run without federal funding.'' Peter Funt is a writer and public speaker; he may be reached at www.CandidCamera.com, he's also the long-time host of "Candid Camera." Defunding or defanging? Candid Thoughts Peter Funt Macbeth should resign E ditor: Once again it is time for b etter government in H ighlands County. Ross M acbeth should resign or be t erminated. How many of us w ould want someone worki ng for us in the private sect or who is so mixed up with h is billing? Highlands now needs an a ttorney on an annual salary w ho works full time for no o ne but the county. This billing mess makes m y stomach flip. Can't we p lease do better? Michael Merolle Fort LauderdaleStand up to the bullies E ditor: Seeing all the ballyhoo in t he papers about kids being b ullied in their schools r eminded me of an incident i n my youthful high school d ays. It was in my junior year a nd we had to change rooms f or each class we attended. A s we went from one room t o the other, there was one c haracter that was intent on p rovoking me. He would n udge me to make me bump i nto other students and poke m y books from behind me to s pill them on the floor. I f inally had enough and after o ne incident I turned on him a nd told him to meet me in t he gym after school. This c haracter was a little bigger t han me but since I had s pent a little time with a n eighbor who was a small t ime boxer, I figured I could h andle him. After the last class of the d ay, I proceeded to the gym a nd he was waiting for me w ith three of his buddies in a ttendance. I walked to the s eats near the group, laid d own my books, took off my j acket, walked over to this g uy, put up my guard and t old him if he wanted to d ance, to start the music (I h ad been reading western p ulp magazines and thought t his was the way to intimid ate your opponent). It must have worked b ecause he did nothing but s tare at me. I watched him f or a few seconds, nothing h appened, he just stood there looking at me. Finally I figured he didn't want to start anything so I called him yellow to his face, waited a few more seconds and then walked back to my books and jacket, picked them up and left the gym. From that time on he would not come near me. I also noticed that guys and gals who never gave me any notice previously would nod and smile as we passed on our travels from class to class. I won't say that my way will work in all cases but you can pretty well bet that's a guy who will bully you in a group won't stand up face to a face situation. If you know you can't handle the bully, out think him, get a bigger buddy to teach him a lesson. Take a stick to him unexpectantly. There are many ways to get back at a bully without using a gun. Stand up to them and see what happens, you may be surprised. Don't spend your life being the butt of these guys who think they are better than all the folks around them. You may get some bruises or lose a little blood, but you will end up being a man and not a mouse. Woodie Jackson SebringRooney has done outstanding jobEditor: Rep. Tom Rooney has performed an outstanding service by opposing an illadvised water quality plan for Florida. He has stood up for all Floridians with a common sense approach to public policy. Officials at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have established nutrient criteria for all of Florida's flowing waters and lakes. The criteria will set specific criteria for these water bodies. But variable, naturally occurring features of water bodies make a single grid for assessing the specific amounts of phosphorous and nitrogen in them an unreliable tool. Business, agricultural and water utility representatives have warned that the proposed criteria will cost the state from $3.1 billion to $8.4 billion annually for the next three decades. Such a burden could push Florida back into a deep recession, while driving up wastewater utility bills for most residents. What is most surprising about the EPA's plan is that the agency's officials cannot explain how the proposed criteria might benefit the natural environment. Guesswork has replaced peer reviewed science as the basis for public policy. In the meantime, we will all pay if it is implemented. Agriculture has remained a solid foundation of our state's economy in the midst of the collapse of other sectors. Farmers and ranchers also continue to serve us as the first stewards of our freshwater recharge areas, our greenspace and our wildlife habitat, in addition to producing food and fiber. We would all be the losers if it becomes overwhelmed by a bureaucratic power grab. Thank you Rep. Rooney. I appreciate your concern for both our environment and our economy. Marty Wohl President Highlands County Farm Bureau BouquetSeminole Club thanks sponsorsEditor: The Highlands Seminole Club was pleased and proud to present the first Seminole Trail Run on Saturday, March 5. It was a successful fund raising event and raised community awareness of the endless recreational opportunities available at the Sun 'N Lake Preserve. The club extends major kudos and thanks to all of our sponsors of the event: the Alan Jay Automotive Network major sponsor, Adler Accounting Group, All-Brite Professional Cleaning Services, Dr. Jane Bucci of the Newsom Eye Center, Mark Palmer Electric, Haywood Taylor, The Stivender Family, and Waste Transport. An equally extended thanks and appreciation goes out to our partners, Chet Brojek and the Central Florida Striders, and the Highlands County Parks and Natural Resources Department, and Environmental Specialist Corine Burgess, for the use of the Sun 'N Lake Preserve and event planning assistance. The first 5K event at the beautiful setting of the Sun 'N Lake Preserve proved to be a wonderful change of pace for many of the participants, and there are hopes that more passive recreational events will be held there in the future.

Continued from page 2A COMMUNITYBRIEFS OBITUARIES NEWS-SUN Associated PressRICHMOND, Va. The state's challenge of the nation's health care law should bypass an appellate court and go directly to the Supreme Court because of the "crippling uncertainty" a delay imposes upon the states, Virginia's attorney general argues in a filing to justices. Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli responded Monday to the Obama administration's contention that Virginia should not be allowed to leapfrog the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in its challenge of the health care law. Virginia released its reply brief to the Supreme Court on Tuesday. The Obama administration contends a judge's ruling striking down the centerpiece of the health care law should first be heard on the appellate level in Richmond. In his response, Cuccinelli said the challenge raises serious constitutional issues and the federal government fails "to recognize the significant damage that delaying final resolution of the questio ns will inflict upon the stat es and others." The Virginia brief was in response to the Obam a administration's March 1 4 filing, in which it argu es there is no reason to ta ke the rare step of "short-c ircuiting" the lower cou rt review. The portion of the heal th care law struck down by a Virginia judge involves t he requirement that citize ns buy health insurance or p ay a penalty starting in 201 4. The Obama administratio n is asking the 4th Circuit to reverse the ruling. Ahea ring is scheduled in May. The Republican attorn ey general said Virginia is seeking to fast-track t he review by the high cou rt because of "the cripplin g uncertainty faced by t he country until those issu es are resolved." The brief states th at Virginia has met the thres hold to present the case to the Supreme Court th at the "case is of such imper ative public importance as to justify deviation from no rmal appellate practice..." Virginia pushes anew on U.S. health care review

When the issue of a b arbed-wire fence's danger w as raised, agency member E d Oxer said people would f igure out the danger and a void it. "Kids will learn real q uick," he said. In creating rules for commercial district fencing, the council agreed to allowing special exceptions depending a business'needs. For example, a car or boat dealer may need to fence in his lot, while a doctor or hair salon does not. Special exceptions, however, cost $500 apiece. Compton said, in explaining the cost of an exception, that in the past when the town did not charge a fee for the paperwork, it was inundated with requests. Once a fee was attached, the requests for special exceptions dropped dramatically.

"The finished product of any permitted fence should have and aesthetic, albeit functional, appearance." Permitted residential material are chain link, wood quality lumber of milled wood vinyl or ornamental fencing material. Concrete block, brick, decorative aluminum, iron, steel or composite products manufactured specifically for fences and walls, may be permitted through special exception. 10) The town reserves the right to impose more stringent fence regulations than may be provided in development/association covenants or agreements through other laws.

"We need to enter into d iscussion with Choice first, a nd get that offer in writing. T hen you could move forw ard with other vendors or a ny other direction." Commissioners Greg H arris and Don Elwell asked w hy the county had to spend $ 8,800 to determine if there w as a need to spend more w ith a consulting service a greement. "Do we need a consulta nt?" Harris asked. The authorization for the $ 8,800 was for a task order to g et some preliminary inform ation, Gavarrete said. The nine-page letter from K essler had already used up a bout half of that, Kessler t old the commissioners. "We spent half of the $ 8,800 before we even voted on if we wanted to hire a consultant?" Elwell asked. "We do that a lot," Stewart said. "We do it routinely," Helms added. "Aconsultant service agreement would be in addition of what you have spent today," Gavarrete said. Harris was not convinced that county staff could not handle the plans without spending more on a consultant, but Gavarrete explained that there were other projects on the burner. "If this was the only item that your staff was working on, yes, your staff could do this. But we do have other deadlines and other items that this board has directed staff to do at this time. That is why I would recommend a consultant to do an RFP," Gavarrete said. "Having a consultant on board who has done this in the past, and who is currently doing that for other municipalities, is to our benefit." County Attorney Ross Macbeth confirmed that the contract with Choice was the first step. "Our contract with Choice provides for continued hauling. That gets your materials from a house or a business to a place, and that's all it does. How they are processed or packaged are not discussed," Macbeth said. "Before we go out for an RFP, I want to make it clear that it will come back before us before the county makes any decisions," Stewart said. The board did not need to vote to direct Gavarrete to meet with Choice, but did move to allow Gavarrete seek a consultant service agreement and to return to the board by the first meeting in May to present it.

Currently, the website has a contact form and a statement that outlines the anonymous group's concerns. "The recent termination of now former Avon Park City Manager Bruce Behrens after only six months of employment not only leaves us with serious questions about the validity of the allegations cited in the Resolution that called for his termination allegations that will likely remain unfounded, but also and of greater concern, the ability of our elected representatives on city council to follow Florida Statutes, the City of Avon Park Charter, its local Code of Ordinances, and at times even their ability to effectively interpret the Employee Personnel Policy that they adopted in September of 2010," the site states.

By BARRYFOSTER Special to the News-SunSEBRING The winner o f the 59th annual Mobil 1 12 H ours of Sebring was the s ame car as last year but f ielded by a different team. This time it was Team O RECAMatmut that put the P eugeot 908 HDi-FAPon the g rid. It was Loic Duval who s heperded the car to the win, t aking the victory by a marg in of 31.868 seconds over t he Highcroft Racing HPD A RX 01. Simon Pagenaud had d rawn the final stint in the c ar but could not close the g ap. The Peugeot 908 Team T otal car came across the s tart/finish stripe 44.5 seco nds behind the Highcroft c ar. The race was a bittersweet f inish for the Audi R-15, who s tarted and finished its career a t Sebring. Modified to run as an R1 5+ the two-careffort fini shed fourth and fifth overall. Sebring is a race featuring m any different classes. In the GTdivision, the BMWRLLteam swept their class with a 1-2 finish. Joey Hand finished up in the No. 56 with Dirk Werner second. Corvette pulled out a third place on the podium with Tommy Milner in the final stint for them. The LeMans Challenge division saw Genoa Racing come back to outdistance Core Autosports for the top step on the podium while it was Black Swan Racing winning the GTChallenge class. The day started out hot and got hotter as the race moved toward noon. In the first hour, Michelin enginners set the ambient temperature at 80 degrees, with 95 on the track It was much hotter at the front of the pack as the Peugeot and Audi factory teams raced for position in a battle reminicent of the 2007 GTfinish between the Risi Competizone Ferrari and the Flying Lizard Porsche. They came togetheras they battled for the race lead. The collision of the No. 7 Peugeot and the No. 2 Audi sent both the contenders behind the wall Aspin by the Lamborghini then brought out the first yellow flag of the day. The yellowflag sessions were extended, as pitting wasstaggered to allow prototype then GTcars to pit due to the number of cars on the grid this year. There was quite a bit of contact during the opening laps. The most spectacular incident occurredas the Corvette of Jan Magnussen and Patrtick Long in the Flying Lizard Porsche came togeher in Turn 17. Long said his Porsche 911 got airborme after hitting a bump then banged into Corvette.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING It wasn't a m atter of if, just a matter of w here as Blue Streak quarterb ack Matt Grubb made the c hoice to join the Wasps of E mory and Henry College in E mory, VA. Tuesday morni ng. "We had a number of o ffers but it was just a matter o f finding the right fit," G rubb's father Dale e xplained. "His whole life, h e's never wanted to let anyb ody down, so it was a tough d ecision for him to make. He didn't talk a lot about it, but he prayed about it." Football and faith played big parts, but not any larger than education for the senior who plans to go into pre-med and eventually work as a physicians assistant and pediatric oncologist. "They have a very good biology program there, so that was a factor," Grubb said. "And it really came down to the coach (Don Montgomery).

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING It was a busy signing day at Sebring Tuesday as Clarence Counts followed Matt Grubb by signing a scholarship to play for the Vikings of Valley City State University in Valley City, ND. Asparkplug in the Blue Streak defensive backfield, Counts now makes the leap to the NAIAlevel for a Viking squad that while it went 5-5 last season, does boast 25 Dakota Athletic Conference championships and six trips to the NAIA national playoffs. "It's just good to be able to keep my football career going," Counts said. "As well as to get a nice education." Something his mother Shantron Anderson was keen on. "That was the goal, to be able to get a college education," she said. "I am happy today that he's reached that goal and also has the opportunity to play football." Standing 5-foot, 7-inches, Counts knows what some see as limitations, but are just obstacles to overcome with his play. "I feel like a play 6-feet tall," he said. "I just have to work hard, go out there and compete strong." Counts plans to make t he most of his education as well, eyeing a sports ma nagement major. But he will have t he adjustment of being a Florida native facing h is first experience in the co ld and snow of the upp er Midwest. "I've never really se en snow before," he said. "B ut I'll get used to it." It may be a ways fro m home, but chasing dream s often requires long treks. "It will be hard, hi m being so far," Anderso n said. "We're very clo se and I'm his number-o ne fan, so I'll get up there to see him when I can." Counts heads north to join Vikings By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIt seemed like it would be a tough test, facing a Clewiston squad that Lake Placid hasn't had much success against in recent years. But this isn't recent years and these Lady Dragons made it a lopsided, 9-1 win over the Tigers Monday night. "It's been a long-time coming for us to beat them," head coach Alesia Cheshire said. "But this team is one of the closest teams, as far as teamwork, that I've seen and they're getting better and better every day." As evidence of the progress the team is making, when they first faced McKeel earlier this season, Lake Placid took a 17-0 drubbing. Their match-up on March 11, at McKeel no less, saw a 2-2 affair going into the seventh before the Wildcats eked out the 4-2 win. "Their confidence is building," Cheshire said. As did their lead Monday night. Starting pitcher Laine Weber-Callahan zipped through the top of the first, retiring Clewiston in order, and then started things offensively with a double to the right field fence in the botLady Dragons gaining confidence See LP, page 5B By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.co m AVON PARK A late game power glit ch shut down the lights at Head Field and pos tponed the inevitab le Monday night when t he Hardee Wildcats be at Avon Park 4-2.

Pagenaud lauded the Michelins and said it was great to duel with former teammate Pedro Lamy. Several penalties also were handed out before noon due to racing incidents ranging from exceeding pit lane speeds to coming in before the pits were open. Dicipline meted out spanned time in the penalty box to mandatory stop and go penalties. In addition to a number of accidents that took cars out of the race, such as an incident that sent the Oak Racing Pescoolaro-Judd into the tire barrier when driver Mattiew Lahaye burned his right foot, there were five cars that officially were retired from the competition.

Box 1538, Gastonia, NC 28053 or send an e-mail to mdutton@gastongazette.com The Bristol crowd, or lack thereof, overshadowed Kyle Buschs fourth victory in the past “ve races at the track. The of“cial estimateŽ of the Jeff Byrd 500 crowd was 120,000, which, as usual, appeared to be a bit exaggerated. Bristol once experienced 55 consecutive sellouts, a streak that ended a year before this race played to what appeared to be little more than half capacity. Jeff Burton has less than half as many points (74) as leader Kurt Busch (150). More pertinent to the Chase, still 22 races away, is the gap of 49 points separating Burton from 10th place. Jeff Gordon, in spite of a victory, ranks only 19th in Sprint Cup points. After four races, the Hendrick Motorsports teams occupy positions seven (Jimmie Johnson), nine (Dale Earnhardt Jr.), 10 (Mark Martin) and 19. Richard Childress Racings fortunes sagged in 2009, when the team expanded for a year to four teams. In 2010, all three drivers made the Chase. Back at four, RCR now ranks “fth (newcomer Paul Menard), 15th (Kevin Harvick), 24th (Clint Bowyer) and 29th (Burton). Three active drivers have won “ve times at Bristol: Kyle Busch, Kurt Busch and Jeff Gordon. The surprising lack of attendance at Bristol casts extra attention on the site of the next race, Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., which has struggled to draw crowds in recent years. No one eligible for the Nationwide Series championship has won a race yet. Or, for that matter, even come close. The team of the Nationwide points leader, Jason Lef” er, ranks third in owner points, where the “nishes of Cup drivers count. Whos hot: Kyle Busch is making a habit out of winning two races on the same weekend, especially at Bristol. ... Carl Edwards has a win and two runner-up “ nishes already. Whos not: Jeff Burton remains mired in the early-season points race, though he moved up slightly to 29th place. ... Once again, Jamie McMurray is off to a slow start. He is 26th. Edwards V E R S U SThe two tangled in Bristol Motor Speedways Nationwide Series race, the Scotts EZ Seed 300. Upon getting out of her wrecked No. 7 Chevy, Patrick said that Truex bounced off the wall into her, which wasnt true. The two cars drifted into each other, and blame for the crash was difficult to assign. Truex accepted the blame. I definitely feel bad about it,Ž he said. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: This was a crash that shouldnt have happened. The matter of which car drifted into the other overlooks the fact that Patrick had plenty of room to avoid Truexs car.ŽDANICA PATRICK VS. RYAN TRUEXBy Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekOn March 16, the principal elements of Chip Ganassis motorsports empire came together. Or at least got closer. NASCARs Jamie McMurray tested an Indy car at Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds, Ala., and Scott Dixon tested a Cup car at Talladega Superspeedway. For McMurray, it was little more than a whim. Dixon has NASCAR aspirations. Im intrigued by it,Ž said Dixon. Sprint Cup is a massive sport and has a huge following. I think the thing thats most intriguing, as youve seen by the people who have tried to make the transition or have made the transition, its 43 cars that are very, very tight and very, very close. I think the tough part for me would be actually doing the 36 races a year. Thats a lot of travel.Ž In praise of concrete „ Ryan Newmans praise of Bristol Motor Speedway goes right to its essence. The actual surface of the track. Concrete. I love the fact its concrete and doesnt seem like it changes a whole lot,Ž said Newman. Once you get a car right, its typically right for 500 laps, which is difficult to get on some of the race tracks. Honestly, theres just no place like Bristol. Ive told people before that Bristol is like a baby superspeedway. If something happens in front of you, it may not be your fault, but you can get caught up in somebody elses wreck in the blink of an eye.Ž Scaled down „ Only Mark Martin would compare Bristol to „ gasp! „ Talladega. Its 38 percent as big, 65 percent as fast and 91 percent as banked. Bristol is kind of like Talladega Superspeedway in the fact that anything can really happen,Ž he said. Maybe not to the extreme that Talladega is, but it definitely has that capability. The best thing to do is be good right off the truck; qualify well; get a great pit box and a great starting position; and just stay up front all night. Not only does that help during the race itself, but it also gets everyones confidence up and gets them pumped up for the race.Ž Au contraire „ Carl Edwards disputed the notion that passing is easier at Bristol since its surface and layout were revised in 2007. We all thought, well, man, thats going to make passing a lot easier, but really its been the opposite,Ž he said. You can run side-by-side for 20 laps, but passing is really hard.Ž titihdthtiti McMurray, Dixon swap Ganassi rides for a day By Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekBRISTOL, Tenn. „ What by any measure is a considerable achievement „ sweeping two races on the same NASCAR weekend „ is becoming a familiar attribute of Kyle Buschs career. In fact, Busch has won four of the past five races at Bristol Motor Speedway in what NASCAR refers to as its major touring seriesŽ: Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck. The latest victories were in the Scotts EZ Seed 300, a Nationwide Series event, and the Food City Jeff Byrd 500, the weekends premier event in the Sprint Cup Series. The Cup victory was Buschs first of the season and 20th of his career. He is tied with Speedy Thompson for 33rd place on the series all-time list of winners. Busch has recently prospered by taking the high lineŽ around the .533-mile oval. Its just momentum,Ž he said. Youre not having to hold your car so tight on the bottom of the race track. Slow it down. Get it to turn. ƒ You can carry more momentum and speed up there.Ž What is noticeably absent in Buschs list of accomplishments is a Sprint Cup championship. He presently ranks sixth in the points standings, trailing the leader, his older brother Kurt, by 17. Racing to your potential, on most days, will get you a win,Ž Kyle said. You dont really have to worry about that. It seems like were a lot better at some tracks than maybe some others that were working on and getting better at. Every time we unload, were racing for the win. If we can gather the wins up, the points will take care of themselves. ƒ Its only a matter of keeping track of your bad days.Ž Busch, who is from Las Vegas, is still only 25 years old. He has three top-10 finishes in the seasons first four races, with a runner-up finish at Phoenix in addition to the Bristol victory. He has won at a wide variety of tracks, including nine victories on tracks of a mile or greater, two at so-called restrictor-plate tracks, seven on short tracks and two on road courses.Bristol Seems Easy For KyleBusch grabbing checkered flags all over the place recentlyJohn Clark/NASCAR This WeekThough the Jeff Byrd 500 was Kyle Buschs first Cup win of the season, the 25-year-old also won five straight races at Bristol. Hes won four of the past five races at the fan-favorite Bristol track and says he hopes to keep momentum for the season and on the track.

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 watch NASCAR every week. I really enjoy it. DW (Darrell Waltrip) is my all-time favorite driver, but this year the noise from the cars on the track is so loud that you can hardly hear the commentors over the roar. What have they done to the sound? Please see what they can do to fix it. Suan Morgan Brunswick, Maine You arent the only fan who has complained about the sound of the cars drowning out the announcers on TV. Were not in a position to do anything about it other than print your letter. Perhaps someone with Fox (or the other networks and stations televising races) will pay heed. Dear NASCAR This Week, I just cannot figure out all the fuss about points. ƒ You turn on Race Hub,Ž which I like better than some of the other NASCAR proactive shows, and all the talk, after only three races (now four) is who is where in the points, who has to get better, etc. (Youd) think it was the last race of the year. I refuse to carry a spreadsheet or calculator to a race, but I have carried binoculars. NASCAR needs to find something more of interest to the fans than trying to make a race out of a points system. All NASCAR fans would like is a great race on Sunday. The race is for fans. The points title is for drivers. ƒ Charles Jackson Autryville, N.C. We couldnt agree with you more.

Emory and Henry plays in t he Old Dominion Athletic C onference and has 11 conf erence championships under i t's belt. The Wasps routinely draw i n excess of 5,000 for games, u sually topping 10,000 for h omecoming. There is also the benefit t hat the top quarterbacks on t he team, Dustin Beck and D rew Piscopo will be in their f inal season when Grubb j oins the team. "That played a small part i n it," he admitted. "It wasn't a deciding factor or anything, b ut more of a positive to k now that I can get in there, h elp the team however I can a nd learn for a year before g etting a chance to start." Something his former c oach doesn't see a problem with. "He will succeed, in anything he does," former Sebring head coach Jared Hamlin said. "Working three years with him, he's a smart kid and he's also football smart, which doesn't always go together. He's got the ability, the work ethic and I have no doubt he'll do what he needs to do." Grubb finished 16th in the state last season, throwing for 2,227 yards with 22 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Location also played a part, even if Virginia isn't exactly close by, in that there is family in nearby Pennsylvania and North Carolina as well as Virginia. "I'm looking forward to the experience," Grubb said, when reminded of the snow he will have to get used to during the winter months. "But they also have hunting up there, so there will be a taste of home." Continued from 1B Grubb to perform in front of "The Swarm" tom of the inning. After stealing third, Weber-Callahan tagged and came home on a Taylor Test sacrifice fly for a 1-0 lead. The Tigers clawed back to tie with their lone run of the game in the second, but RBIs from Michelle Hunter and Test upped the margin to 3-1 after two. Things held there, with the Lake Placid defense stepping up in support of Weber-Callahan's effort. In the fourth, Test made two outstanding plays at shortstop to keep Clewiston from threatening and according to Cheshire, "Leigha Gersper made a catch on one of the hardest line drives I've ever seen," at second base. The offense then added on as Bria Wilson took one well out of the yard for a lead-off homer to center in the bottom of the fourth. Gersper followed with a double to left, Test and RB I single and RBI hits fro m Breauna Corley and Arnet ia Gobourne for a 7-1 score.

Seems g reat to appreciate others' j oyful times! You probably have seen o ur candid camera lady' b uzzing around the park s napping away, especially at a ny function! Her photo madn ess has come to fruition w ith a lovely photo album S hirley Lundgren has assemb led for the 2011 season. Be s ure to spend a few minutes v iewing the winter activities a t Town and Country. The a lbum is available in the c lubhouse. Agreat job; thank y ou to Shirley for all her e fforts! Our sincere sympathy is e xtended to the family of W anda Dupree, who passed o n March 6. It was a privil ege to attend a memorial s ervice at the Lake Haven c lubhouse on March 16. W anda's children/grandchild ren spoke eloquently of her k ind traits, her smile "that l ights up your world" and her p assion for bingo. Afinal t ribute to Wanda was a new g reat granddaughter (Emily) a rriving one week after her d eath to granddaughter Karen o f Orlando. Aside n ote...Wanda's beloved cat, S pookie, was given to her n urse Betty from Highlands R egional, who has two happy l ittle boys as a result. Alovel y lady who will be greatly missed by many. At the final potluck dinner on March 16, in lieu of a 50/50 drawing, $127 was contributed to the American Red Cross for the Japanese relief efforts after the horrifying earthquake/tsunami. Donations are welcome at your local Highlands County Service Center. Be sure to designate in the memo area: Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami. The 12 Hours of Sebring officials provided a booth for our local Red Cross Service unit to collect donations which are so desperately needed. Thank you to Town and Country residents and Race track officials for these thoughtful gestures. Upcoming events include the Men's Breakfast group at Dot's Restaurant and Ladies' Luncheon at Caddyshack, both today. Our final event of the season is the Pool Party on Saturday, March 26, at 4 p.m. All HOAmembers are welcome to attend free. Be sure to sign up in advance. Menu consists of fried chicken, potato salad, coleslaw, baked beans, roll and dessert. We trust this will be a fun time to enjoy our neighbors and bid farewell to many who will be doing the northward trek soon. Thank you to Wendy Johnson and all who have assisted in many ways to provide varying activities. An out-of-park event we all need to support is the FMO District 6 meeting at 10 a.m. today at Tropical Harbor MHPin Lake Placid. We have a new President, Lucinda Volpe of Francis I MHP. Congratulations and thank you to Lucinda for accepting this important position.

Thank you to each person for his/her service to our local Federation of Manufactured Home Owners of Florida Inc. and to our local mobile home park residents. New officers will be installed at this meeting. Neighbor Bill LaPeer is home recovering from 13 days in Orlando Florida Hospital. Doctors have hopefully nursed Bill back to normal and we trust he continues to be strengthened daily. Floyd Cummins has been nursing some bruises from a couple recent falls. We trust all with recent health problems are recuperating well. Several men from the park volunteered or attending the 12 Hours of Sebring. It was interesting to read Sebring International Raceway is America's oldest permanent racing facility with this year being the 59th running of the Race. Another recent event some of us thoroughly enjoyed was the Sweet Adeline concert in Avon Park. An example of the wonderful talent Sebring folks are blessed with and coming up March 25 through April 10 at Highlands Little Theater is the musical comedy, "The Wedding Singer." Seems we have varied activities using all types of talents in our small city. Several in the park have inquired about Chuck and I picking up garage sale items for the next Red Cross garage sale. I'm sorry to report our last garage sale was held Feb. 12. However, there are available clothing donation drop boxes for recycled clothing with the Red Cross benefiting from the sale. Several boxes are available in the areas of Sebring, Avon Park and Lake Placid. The boxes have the Red Cross insignia displayed. For specific locations, call the office at 386-4440. To all those residents who will be traveling north soon, our prayers for safe travel and a happy blessed summer. LAKE PLACID On March 14th at the Monday morning coed coffee, our emcee was Donna Vanden Bergh and our coffee makers were Ken and Rose Wilson along with their son Rod Wild. George Susco, our manager was not available this morning. Behind Donna we had a display of 22 baskets to bid on. The baskets were filled with various items that would appeal to almost anyone. They were all made up by the residents who teamed up to buy the assortment of contents. Paula Bannister is the chairman of the Relay for Life committee. The team has done an outstanding job. Paula said they have already met their goal but she said the cause to cure cancer cannot be limited to a goal, you have to keep on striving to make the Relay for Life a success. Next Donna read the names of persons celebrating their birthdays the week of March 13-19. She asked Laura Bailie to play the piano and lead us in song. We all sang to Andy Anderson who was the only one present for his birthday. She also read the names of couples celebrating their anniversary, however no one was present. She extended best wishes to all and thanked Laura for providing the music. Next she asked all to come forward who are in charge of up coming activities.

Our hostesses were Susan Spurlock and Doris Dornbach, who made up little candy favors all done up in mini shamrock cupcake holders. The women all seemed to have a great time. Carol Noel stood up and told the group that the Military Soup and Sandwich went very well. They served 170. She told the residents that they are getting ready to sent the boxes out to service people stationed in Afghanistan and Iraq to please make sure the address are correct. Fred White told the group that the Computer Club was canceled due to the St Patrick's Day Dinner. Speaking of St. Patrick's Day, the tickets for the dinner have been sold out. March 19, we had the final dance of the season. The theme was Mardi Gras with the music provided by Frank -E. Today, residents from the original 13 colonies, including Vermont, will be having their luncheon at the Golden Corral beginning at 1:45 p.m. On March 30, Sherry White told the group that she is selling tickets for the Chili Dinner. Tickets are $6 each and the proceeds will go towards the Relay For Life Program. Donna thanked the group for their information and she then asked Carol Noel for the Sunshine report. Carol told the residents that she has set "Thinking Of You" sheets on the table for all to sign to the following: Kathleen Bishop who is having surgery, Betty and Jack Post, Joan Vladyka and a thinking of you sheet to Louise Smith who has just moved to a new home is Davenport. Before closing the meeting, Donna asked if we had any new residents. We have Mike and Barbara Collins who live on Bell Tower Avenue Joanne Rau introduced her sister Judith Saxton from Warren, Mich. Tuesday, March 15, we had ladies morning coffee. We had 32 ladies present. Our emcee and coffee maker was Vickie Echelberry. She read the names of people celebrating their birthday, however we had no one present. For anniversaries we had Marlene Hunt and Sylvia Fitch stood in as proxy for Marlene's husband Roger. We all sang to her. Vicky then asked the women to tell the group what type of career they did in the past before retirement. Surprisingly we had man y women who were scho ol teachers, or supervisor s, many worked in a bank, som e worked on a farm with the ir husbands and one was an author. We have so many ta lented women. Marily n Cromer told the group th at the St. Patrick's Day Dinn er was sold out. The committ ee sold 181 tickets.

p entas should be the main p lants in your butterfly gard en because butterflies are a ttracted to them. Cuttings can be taken f rom the pentas to create n ew plants by planting them i n soil and keeping them m oist until established. It is b est to use the new growth o f the plant. The pentas s hould have the black stam en for them to feed on and t he dwarf pentas will not h elp the butterflies. The milkweed is another p lant for the butterflies to l ay their eggs and the caterp illars like them, also. W asps and birds are the e nemy for the butterfly. You c an create a "flight cage" to p rotect the eggs and caterpill ars. The eggs take about t hree days to hatch and a bout two weeks for the c hrysalis. However, caterpill ars cannot be moved from o ne plant to another unless it i s the appropriate plant for t hat species of the butterfly. S o, if you create a "flight c age" make sure you have t he proper plants in the cage. You can also create your o wn nectar containers for the b utterflies. Butterflies are a ttracted by color, so they m ay check out a plant but t hen will search for the prope r ones to feed on. It is good t o group the plants of the s ame color together. The M exican flame vine has lots o f pollen for the zebra longw ing butterfly. The zebra b utterfly lives two to six m onths while the monarch or s wallowtail butterflies can l ive two weeks to several m onths. The best book for our area i s "Florida's Fabulous B utterflies" by Thomas E mmel and Brian Kenny. A nother book for your l ibrary should be "Your F lorida Guide to Butterfly G ardening, AGuide for D eep South" by Jaret C. Daniels. Amilkweed plant was given away and won by Pat Jackson. The next meeting will be at 1:30 p.m. on May 10 at the Bert Harris Jr. Ag Center in Conference Room 2.

She encouraged members to start slow and gradually build up a routine, whatever routine they do. She emphasized that walking is still the best exercise but those who have difficulty walking should try exercising at home either sitting or holding onto a chair back. The motto should be "I'm doing this for me because I am important!" Karen Goodwin called th e roll with 33 members present. The Best Loser of the Week was Judy O'Boyle.

Many of you are habitually late. This is a common trait for most of us. Our husbands hate it, too. Believe it or not this has to do with our martyred attitude. Tardiness is a passive-aggressive behavior. I know you don't think it is. We are in control when we make people wait on us, consciously or unconsciously. The problem also arises because of our perfectionism; I just need to do one more thing. This may become more of a problem after you have your routines in place. So what is making us late? We are the reason because of our lack of thinking ahead. When we put a little forethought to our day and take precautions to keep ourselves from getting off track. This is why our Before Bed Routine is so important to a peaceful start to your day. Ask yourself: how much time do you spend searching for things? If you could put your hands on an item when you need it, this could save you precious time every day. Right now, where are your car keys? I keep mine clipped to my purse. Before I get out of the car, I hook them to my purse. I never have to hunt for my keys. This used to be a big problem for me. I would get down to the car and then have to run back up to the house to search for my keys. I have also hidden a key on my car in a magnetic case, just in case I get sidetracked again. Do you search for bills that need to be paid? When I first got organized, I devised a notebook similar to the control journal, except I didn't have routines in it. This was a portable zippered notebook with a handle. It had pockets, zippered pouches and it would hold a three-ring binder. In this notebook, I kept my bills to be paid, my check stubs, my file for my paid bills (at that time I kept every receipt: I don't do this anymore), pens, pencils, notebook paper, my menus, grocery list, greeting cards, thank you notes, paper clips, little stapler and stamps. This became my portable office. At work, on my break I could work on my menus or grocery list or at lunch, I could pay a few bills and work on my budget. This was a quiet time that I could take 15-20 minutes of uninterrupted time and take care of our finances, plan our menus and make out a grocery list. It was always with me. This was the proto-type for our Office in a Bag. Another reason we run late is we don't fill our cars up with gas when it is convenient. We wait till we are smack dab on empty and we are running behind schedule. This cost us time and our safety. Running late makes us rush and rushing can cause us to be careless. Keep a $20 bill hidden for emergencies or that opportune time to fill up. I also keep a $100 dollar bill stashed for larger problems. I rarely have to use it, but I know I have it, if needed. This gives me a sense of relief and that translates to less stress in my life. I have even done this when I only had thirteen cents to my name. It took a while to sav e it up, but I did it. inspiration sessions? We have to curb our think ing. When we hear ourselve s say, "I can do that later." Le t this be the trigger that tells you, "Right away is the easy way." Putting things off usu ally make them more difficu lt to do. The reality is we thin k, we dread, and we continue t o procrastinate until it just has to be done. The whole time we are beating ourselves up over n ot doing the task when it was s o simple. My Sweet Darling calls this the "Do it Now Principle." You know that awful feeling when you should have put that roll of toilet paper in the holder when you first thought abou t it, now you really, really ne ed it. When you think about something that could be so simple to do right now, don 't put it off until later. Now, th is is not getting sidetracked. I am talking about very short simple jobs that will save time and energy if done now You know what your granny's always said, "A stitch in time, saves nine." Learning to ACTin advance instead of Re-Act will help you gain precious minutes to your day. Eventually this will become a habit and you will surprise yourself. I have had to look up and make sure I had paid a bill, because I did it without even thinking. This is a wonderful feeling. FLYing is so easy, when you look ahead.

Some of them have b een downright frightening, a lthough, of course, not all i n-law relationships are f raught with conflict. I bring this up because I 'm about to become a mothe r-in-law for the first time. M y oldest son will marry his l ongtime girlfriend early this s ummer. She's a lovely girl, a nd we already consider her t o be a cherished member of o ur family. I remember a "Mother-inL aw's Prayer" that ran in y our column years ago. It w as a kind of "pep talk" f rom a woman to herself as s he approaches mother-inl aw status. I found it quite h umorous. Would you please r eprint it for me and for o ther mothers-in-law as the s pring wedding season becko ns? Hopefully, I won't need t o refer to it often. Also, h ow can I get the booklet t hat contains it? Katherine M., Fort Wayne, Ind. DearKatherine: Congratulations on your son's forthcoming wedding. The item you referenced has been asked for many times. Over the years, readers have requested that I reprint articles that have special meaning to them on subjects such as parenting, children, animals, aging, death, forgiveness, etc. My booklet ("Keepers") contains 72 column pieces that people have told me they kept to re-read until the pieces were yellow with age and falling apart. It can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $6 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby Keepers Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. You'll find stories, poems and prayers like the one below to inspire you, make you think or simply brighten your day. If all mother-in-law relationships were judged solely by the letters in my column, many people would conclude that it's an emotional minefield. I discussed this subject with a psychiatrist who shared that a mother-in-law who is perceived as overbearing may be one who was a conscientious mother. But now that her child is grown, she finds it difficult to relinquish her role as teacher and protector and quit "hovering" an interesting observation.A Mother-In-Law's Prayer"O, Lord, help me to be glad when my son (or daughter) picks a mate. If he brings home a girl with two heads, let me love both of them equally. And when my son says, Mom, I want to get married,'forbid that I should blurt out, How far along is she?' "And please, Lord, help me to get through the wedding preparations without a squabble with the other side.'And drive from my mind the belief that had my child waited a while, he or she could have done better. "Dear Lord, remind me daily that when I become a grandmother, my children don't want advice on how to raise their children any more than I did when I was raising mine. "If you will help me to do these things, perhaps my children will find me a joy to be around, and maybe I won't have to write a Dear Abby'letter complaining about my children neglecting me. Amen."

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Despite a crowd that seemed larger than previous years, this years 59th running of the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring was relatively calm and probably wont set an attendance record. Despite large numbers of fans that had organizers restricting the number of cars allowed to enter the Raceway and a week of nearly perfect weather, spectators were pretty calm. According to Highlands County Sheriffs Office Capt. J.P. Fane, Race fans and party-seekers were fairly well behaved. No arrests were made on Wednesday or Thursday. Friday and Saturday,, 24 people were arrested, including a handful of Highlands County residents. Most of the charges were for underage drinking or for misdemeanor possession of marijuana charges. From a security standpoint, it was one of the best years weve had, Fane said. As for the turnout at Sebring International Raceway, the numbers were big but Raceway President Tres Stephenson does not expect it to be a record-breaking year. Its going to be a couple days before we have the exact numbers, Stephenson said Tuesday. It wont be disappointing, but it probably wont be record breaking. The record turnout was in 2002. According to the Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce, more than 125,000 were in attendance for that year.

On Feb. 15, the countys Director of Solid Waste, Ramon Gavarrete, w as tasked by the board to take a prelimina ry look at a request for proposal (RFP) f or county-wide curbside recycling, he said. Gavarrete decided, along with direction from County Administrator Rick Helms, to hire Kessler Consulting, Inc. to do a preliminary analysis of the county position for a fee not to exce ed $8,800. Mitch Kessler, president of Kessl er Consulting, Inc., told the commissione rs that he would advise approaching Choi ce Environmental (which currently has t he countys regular garbage contract) first in order to get in writing what they a re offering to get the materials hauled.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Except for Robert Summers, the city council meeting room had no audience Monday night as the Local Planning Agency reviewed the towns proposed fence policy. The policy is part of the Land Development Code of Lake Placid. It will not be a town ordinance, although it must be approved by the town council. Writing a code for fencing has been underway for some time. The LPAcreated a rough draft with town planner Susie Bushans, who did the actual writing. The draft was sent to the town council, which made its own recommendations. Monday night, the LPA reviewed the revised policy with Bushans. The agency members were in agreement regarding the major stipulations, but because a few definitions were changed, the policy will return to the LPAat its meeting in April, and then be sent to the council for public hearings and adoption. Work on the document Monday proceeded quietly as Bushans went through it section by section. There was a written explanation for every change from the first draft. LPAChair Hoz Compton said the agency wanted to develop a policy by consensus, and thanked Bushans for her step by step approach. It was agreed that issues dealing with hedges and landscaping should be made separate from fence policy. Owners using land for agriculture were a subject of discussion. The concerns revolved around possible conflicts as the town grows and lots become bigger, with the people living on them wanting to raise crops or chickens, a steer, or other type of livestock. It was agreed that farmers and ranchers, having been an integral part of Highlands County and here before anyone else, should have the privilege of not having to get permits in order to put up agricultural fencing. It was also agreed that barbed wire is a legitimate choice for a farmer. Its meant to keep cows in, not people out, Compton said.

Here are the major points included in the proposed fencing sections of the Land development Code of Lake Placid: 1) The word fence is defined as any permanent partition or barrier (excluding retaining walls, hedges or plant material) more than 12 inches in height from the natural grade ... bordering or parallel to and within 5 feet of a lot line that in whole or in part defines the boundaries of said lot. Barriers within a lot, that do not define a border are not to be considered fences and will not need to be permitted. 2) All swimming pools will be fenced, residential pools at a 4foot minimum. 3) No fences or walls may prevent natural drainage or water runoff. 4) A building permit for a fee is required prior to any fencing construction, replacement, extension, or alteration except for agricultural fencing in an agricultural zone. 5) The property owner is The rules See FENCE, page 6A See RULES, page 6A By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Work is already well underway for Sebrings Centennial Celebration in 2012. Actually the year will be filled with special events, with the major birthday festivities taking place the week of Oct. 13-21. Awide array of individuals, organizations, churches and agencies are planning the celebrations. The Sebring Historical Society is one of the leaders. In addition to planning, the society is writing and publishing a book called The One Hundred Years of Sebring. The volume, modeled after a book published in honor of Sebrings 75th birthday, will contain accounts of historical events, social trends and economic progress, as well as stories of residents over the years, including business men, civic leader s, teachers and principal s, pastors, and elected off icials. The goal is to load t he pages with information an d photographs. Carole Goad, Sebring s archivist, asks individua ls who might not percei ve their own historical worth iness to be open when som eone calls and asks for an interview. She also hopes the com munity will support t he book in other ways b y buying and reading it, of course, but also by adverti sing in it. Straight up business a ds are welcome, but Go ad hopes to attract more histo rical type contributions. For example, she hop es families use the opportuni ty to pay tribute to earlier ge nerations, and that busines ses, civic organizations an d social clubs tell their ow n histories, or simply wi sh Sebrings centennial history being written See BOOK, page 6A RPAC meets ThursdaySEBRING There will be an RPAC (Recreation and Parks Advisory Committee) meeting at 2 p.m. Thursday in the Sports Complex, Concession Building at 216 Sheriffs Tower Road.

Programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and welfare are the only things keeping some Americans just at the poverty line and just above the hardships of third-world countries and starving citizens. However, according to Feeding America foundation, 1 in 4 children in the United States still goes to bed hungry almost every night. Community Bible Church Youth Pastor Jeremy Hurd feels that those numbers are completely unacceptable. Hurd understands and recognizes the issues that are going on in the world today, but outside of the devastating earthquake and tsunamis, Hurd hopes to do good work away from those spotlights. By going without food, they get a taste of what the worlds poorest children and families face every day, explained Hurd. Love Hungry is the theme for the fast for this year and marks the projects sixth year. Students raised funds prior to the weekends famine. Students have learned that $30 can provide not only food but other care and services for underprivileged youth througho ut the world.

A12-foot-deep trench lies p arallel to the shore, the r esult of dredging years ago. B y 2008, drought had r educed the lake so the t rench, once safely out in d eeper water, was now a s hort distance off shore in w ading depth. That continues to be the c ase. The young man who d rowned, however, did not do s o because he was taken by s urprise. In fact he had been h aving fun swimming over t he trench, got a cramp and s ank. Despite efforts by many s wimmers and emergency p ersonnel his body wasnt r ecovered for a half an hour. Naturally, it was a shocki ng tragedy. To be safe, the c ity banned swimming until a s olution could be found. It turned out that filling in t he trench would be difficult a nd very expensive, which is why we do not advocate that solution. But the decision to wait until nature corrected the problem by raining enough to increase the lakes depth has now dragged on for almost three years. We think keeping the beach closed all this time is an overreaction, and a terrible waste of a wonderful resource. Triathlon swimmers, after all, have managed to navigate the area without anyone dying. Water is always dangerous. Hundreds of young children drown every year, most in their own home pools. One child here in Sebring remained in critical condition as of Monday after being found in the family pool. Other local children have also drowned or been disabled for life. But are we going to ban swimming pools? Much as we might like, we cannot wrap all the sharp edges of this world in foam. At some point we individuals need to take responsibility for our own safety and behave sensibly. Proper notice danger signs and anchored buoys should be enough of a warning.

There was plenty of passionate poppycock on the House floor Thursday, as members debated the Republicans emergency bill to eliminate funding for National Public Radio. Although the bill passed, as did a proposal last month to defund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, neither measure will advance beyond the House chamber. And while most of the arguments from both sides tap-danced around the issues, a level-headed reassessment of federal spending for public TVand radio is overdue. Republicans rushed to judgment to take advantage of NPRs recent spate of bad publicity the latest incident involving nasty cracks about conservatives by NPRs chief fundraiser, Ron Schiller, recorded in a hidden-camera sting. Schiller was appropriately asked to leave NPR, as was his boss. But the secret video proves nothing about NPR as an organization, nor does Schillers behavior qualify as grounds to defund an operation that serves some 27 million listeners a week. The real issues regarding NPR are straightforward. Republicans dont like spending taxpayer money on what many perceive as a liberal-leaning network, when the "private sector" is doing such a smashing job of promoting conservative views on commercial radio. Democrats believe the money is well spent, considering the pounding they are taking from Fox News and conservative broadcasters like Rush Limbaugh. As Democrats see it, NPR need not be liberal; the absence of overt conservatism is sufficient. Thursdays floor show in the House was risible. Republican Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee said with a straight face that defunding NPR would encourage more hiring by forcing rural stations to create new local programming. She went so far as to list 17 different jobs needed to produce a single radio show staffing levels that didnt exist even in radios heyday decades ago. Democrat Anthony Weiner of New York spent an embarrassing two minutes delivering a standup comedy routine about how Republicans hoped to solve the economic crisis by destroying the NPR series Car Talk as if that was the point, which it wasnt. Republican Leader Eric Canto r of Virginia inched closer to the truth, as he sees it, by charging NPR wit h advocating one ideology and veering far from what people want to (hear). Thats not true about NPR or the public with 69 percen t of Americans favoring fede ral funding of public radio. Across the aisle, Steve Israel, head of the DemocratsCongressional Campaign Committee, wrote, If the Republicans had their way, wed only be left with the likes of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin to dominate the airwaves. Thats horribly misguided, because it suggests that NPRs mission is to defuse the message of conservative broadcasters, o r to present the other side o f political controversies, whi ch it is not. The real question, perhap s better left for a time when a semblance of bipartisanship returns to Capitol Hill, is whether the public is best served by federal involvement in broadcasting. When the Corporation for Public Broadcasting was created b y Congress in 1967, the medi a landscape was dramatically different. Back then, a bette r case could be made for pro viding quality governmentsupported radio and TV, especially in rural areas. In the digital age, thats not really necessary. Its worth noting that CSPAN, an arm of the cableTVindustry that receives n o taxpayer funds, provides th e most fair and well-produce d coverage of government imaginable. The explosive growth of the Internet, alon g with cable and satellite systems, make the need for pu blic TVand radio less clear cut. Media operate best without government meddling and, in this day and age, without taxpayer money. Although the latest attempt to defund NPR wil l not succeed, the House debate alone will apply unreasonable pressure to th e workings of the network that, at most, gets only 10 percent of its revenue from taxpayers. Is it worth it? Even disgraced NPR fund raiser Ron Schiller concede d, it is very clear that we would be better off in the long run without federal funding. Peter Funt is a writer and public speaker; he may be reached at www.CandidCamera.com, hes also the long-time host of Candid Camera. Defunding or defanging? Candid Thoughts Peter Funt Macbeth should resign E ditor: Once again it is time for b etter government in H ighlands County. Ross M acbeth should resign or be t erminated. How many of us w ould want someone worki ng for us in the private sect or who is so mixed up with h is billing? Highlands now needs an a ttorney on an annual salary w ho works full time for no o ne but the county. This billing mess makes m y stomach flip. Cant we p lease do better? Michael Merolle Fort LauderdaleStand up to the bullies E ditor: Seeing all the ballyhoo in t he papers about kids being b ullied in their schools r eminded me of an incident i n my youthful high school d ays. It was in my junior year a nd we had to change rooms f or each class we attended. A s we went from one room t o the other, there was one c haracter that was intent on p rovoking me. He would n udge me to make me bump i nto other students and poke m y books from behind me to s pill them on the floor. I f inally had enough and after o ne incident I turned on him a nd told him to meet me in t he gym after school. This c haracter was a little bigger t han me but since I had s pent a little time with a n eighbor who was a small t ime boxer, I figured I could h andle him. After the last class of the d ay, I proceeded to the gym a nd he was waiting for me w ith three of his buddies in a ttendance. I walked to the s eats near the group, laid d own my books, took off my j acket, walked over to this g uy, put up my guard and t old him if he wanted to d ance, to start the music (I h ad been reading western p ulp magazines and thought t his was the way to intimid ate your opponent). It must have worked b ecause he did nothing but s tare at me. I watched him f or a few seconds, nothing h appened, he just stood there looking at me. Finally I figured he didnt want to start anything so I called him yellow to his face, waited a few more seconds and then walked back to my books and jacket, picked them up and left the gym. From that time on he would not come near me. I also noticed that guys and gals who never gave me any notice previously would nod and smile as we passed on our travels from class to class. I wont say that my way will work in all cases but you can pretty well bet thats a guy who will bully you in a group wont stand up face to a face situation. If you know you cant handle the bully, out think him, get a bigger buddy to teach him a lesson. Take a stick to him unexpectantly. There are many ways to get back at a bully without using a gun. Stand up to them and see what happens, you may be surprised. Dont spend your life being the butt of these guys who think they are better than all the folks around them. You may get some bruises or lose a little blood, but you will end up being a man and not a mouse. Woodie Jackson SebringRooney has done outstanding jobEditor: Rep. Tom Rooney has performed an outstanding service by opposing an illadvised water quality plan for Florida. He has stood up for all Floridians with a common sense approach to public policy. Officials at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have established nutrient criteria for all of Floridas flowing waters and lakes. The criteria will set specific criteria for these water bodies. But variable, naturally occurring features of water bodies make a single grid for assessing the specific amounts of phosphorous and nitrogen in them an unreliable tool. Business, agricultural and water utility representatives have warned that the proposed criteria will cost the state from $3.1 billion to $8.4 billion annually for the next three decades. Such a burden could push Florida back into a deep recession, while driving up wastewater utility bills for most residents. What is most surprising about the EPAs plan is that the agencys officials cannot explain how the proposed criteria might benefit the natural environment. Guesswork has replaced peer reviewed science as the basis for public policy. In the meantime, we will all pay if it is implemented. Agriculture has remained a solid foundation of our states economy in the midst of the collapse of other sectors. Farmers and ranchers also continue to serve us as the first stewards of our freshwater recharge areas, our greenspace and our wildlife habitat, in addition to producing food and fiber. We would all be the losers if it becomes overwhelmed by a bureaucratic power grab. Thank you Rep. Rooney. I appreciate your concern for both our environment and our economy. Marty Wohl President Highlands County Farm Bureau BouquetSeminole Club thanks sponsorsEditor: The Highlands Seminole Club was pleased and proud to present the first Seminole Trail Run on Saturday, March 5.

Continued from page 2A COMMUNITYBRIEFS OBITUARIES NEWS-SUN Associated PressRICHMOND, Va. The states challenge of the nations health care law should bypass an appellate court and go directly to the Supreme Court because of the crippling uncertainty a delay imposes upon the states, Virginias attorney general argues in a filing to justices. Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli responded Monday to the Obama administrations contention that Virginia should not be allowed to leapfrog the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in its challenge of the health care law. Virginia released its reply brief to the Supreme Court on Tuesday. The Obama administration contends a judges ruling striking down the centerpiece of the health care law should first be heard on the appellate level in Richmond. In his response, Cuccinelli said the challenge raises serious constitutional issues and the federal government fails to recognize the significant damage that delaying final resolution of the questio ns will inflict upon the stat es and others. The Virginia brief was in response to the Obam a administrations March 1 4 filing, in which it argu es there is no reason to ta ke the rare step of short-c ircuiting the lower cou rt review. The portion of the heal th care law struck down by a Virginia judge involves t he requirement that citize ns buy health insurance or p ay a penalty starting in 201 4. The Obama administratio n is asking the 4th Circuit to reverse the ruling. Ahea ring is scheduled in May. The Republican attorn ey general said Virginia is seeking to fast-track t he review by the high cou rt because of the cripplin g uncertainty faced by t he country until those issu es are resolved. The brief states th at Virginia has met the thres hold to present the case to the Supreme Court th at the case is of such imper ative public importance as to justify deviation from no rmal appellate practice...

When the issue of a b arbed-wire fences danger w as raised, agency member E d Oxer said people would f igure out the danger and a void it. Kids will learn real q uick, he said. In creating rules for commercial district fencing, the council agreed to allowing special exceptions depending a businessneeds. For example, a car or boat dealer may need to fence in his lot, while a doctor or hair salon does not. Special exceptions, however, cost $500 apiece. Compton said, in explaining the cost of an exception, that in the past when the town did not charge a fee for the paperwork, it was inundated with requests. Once a fee was attached, the requests for special exceptions dropped dramatically. Continued from page 2A Page 6ANews-SunWednesday, March 23, 2011www.newssun.com GET YOUR LOCAL NEWS STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE responsible for fence maintenance and repair. 6) No fence or wall in residential property excepting retaining walls, buttresses and seawalls shall exceed 6 feet. 7) The use of barbed wire and electric fencing is prohibited outside of agricultural areas, except by special exception. 8) Specialty fences are allowed in all districts and shall be permitted according to need. 9) It shall be unlawful to erect a fence of materials not specifically designed for fence construction. The finished product of any permitted fence should have and aesthetic, albeit functional, appearance. Permitted residential material are chain link, wood quality lumber of milled wood vinyl or ornamental fencing material. Concrete block, brick, decorative aluminum, iron, steel or composite products manufactured specifically for fences and walls, may be permitted through special exception. 10) The town reserves the right to impose more stringent fence regulations than may be provided in development/association covenants or agreements through other laws.

We need to enter into d iscussion with Choice first, a nd get that offer in writing. T hen you could move forw ard with other vendors or a ny other direction. Commissioners Greg H arris and Don Elwell asked w hy the county had to spend $ 8,800 to determine if there w as a need to spend more w ith a consulting service a greement. Do we need a consulta nt? Harris asked. The authorization for the $ 8,800 was for a task order to g et some preliminary inform ation, Gavarrete said. The nine-page letter from K essler had already used up a bout half of that, Kessler t old the commissioners. We spent half of the $ 8,800 before we even voted on if we wanted to hire a consultant? Elwell asked. We do that a lot, Stewart said. We do it routinely, Helms added. Aconsultant service agreement would be in addition of what you have spent today, Gavarrete said. Harris was not convinced that county staff could not handle the plans without spending more on a consultant, but Gavarrete explained that there were other projects on the burner. If this was the only item that your staff was working on, yes, your staff could do this. But we do have other deadlines and other items that this board has directed staff to do at this time. That is why I would recommend a consultant to do an RFP, Gavarrete said. Having a consultant on board who has done this in the past, and who is currently doing that for other municipalities, is to our benefit. County Attorney Ross Macbeth confirmed that the contract with Choice was the first step. Our contract with Choice provides for continued hauling. That gets your materials from a house or a business to a place, and thats all it does. How they are processed or packaged are not discussed, Macbeth said. Before we go out for an RFP, I want to make it clear that it will come back before us before the county makes any decisions, Stewart said. The board did not need to vote to direct Gavarrete to meet with Choice, but did move to allow Gavarrete seek a consultant service agreement and to return to the board by the first meeting in May to present it.

Right now I am just cont acting church groups, civic o rganizations and other a ctivist groups to raise awaren ess that something needs to b e done, Marshall said on F riday. "No, I am not a part of the ( recall) committee yet, but I w ant to be. Something has to b e done about this, and it has t o be done before they cause a ny more damage to the city, s aid Marshall last week. I feel like I was deceived and the trust in this council is gone. What they did to Bruce (Behrens) was ridiculous. I hate it when they do things in the dark like they did and make it seem that it was all spontaneous and on the spot. Come on, that was planned, Marshall said. The website www.recallapcouncil.com was registered last week with Internet host godaddy.com, but the contact information is listed as private. Currently, the website has a contact form and a statement that outlines the anonymous groups concerns. The recent termination of now former Avon Park City Manager Bruce Behrens after only six months of employment not only leaves us with serious questions about the validity of the allegations cited in the Resolution that called for his termination allegations that will likely remain unfounded, but also and of greater concern, the ability of our elected representatives on city council to follow Florida Statutes, the City of Avon Park Charter, its local Code of Ordinances, and at times even their ability to effectively interpret the Employee Personnel Policy that they adopted in September of 2010, the site states.

By BARRYFOSTER Special to the News-SunSEBRING The winner o f the 59th annual Mobil 1 12 H ours of Sebring was the s ame car as last year but f ielded by a different team. This time it was Team O RECAMatmut that put the P eugeot 908 HDi-FAPon the g rid. It was Loic Duval who s heperded the car to the win, t aking the victory by a marg in of 31.868 seconds over t he Highcroft Racing HPD A RX 01. Simon Pagenaud had d rawn the final stint in the c ar but could not close the g ap. The Peugeot 908 Team T otal car came across the s tart/finish stripe 44.5 seco nds behind the Highcroft c ar. The race was a bittersweet f inish for the Audi R-15, who s tarted and finished its career a t Sebring. Modified to run as an R1 5+ the two-careffort fini shed fourth and fifth overall. Sebring is a race featuring m any different classes. In the GTdivision, the BMWRLLteam swept their class with a 1-2 finish. Joey Hand finished up in the No. 56 with Dirk Werner second. Corvette pulled out a third place on the podium with Tommy Milner in the final stint for them. The LeMans Challenge division saw Genoa Racing come back to outdistance Core Autosports for the top step on the podium while it was Black Swan Racing winning the GTChallenge class. The day started out hot and got hotter as the race moved toward noon. In the first hour, Michelin enginners set the ambient temperature at 80 degrees, with 95 on the track It was much hotter at the front of the pack as the Peugeot and Audi factory teams raced for position in a battle reminicent of the 2007 GTfinish between the Risi Competizone Ferrari and the Flying Lizard Porsche. They came togetheras they battled for the race lead. The collision of the No. 7 Peugeot and the No. 2 Audi sent both the contenders behind the wall Aspin by the Lamborghini then brought out the first yellow flag of the day. The yellowflag sessions were extended, as pitting wasstaggered to allow prototype then GTcars to pit due to the number of cars on the grid this year. There was quite a bit of contact during the opening laps. The most spectacular incident occurredas the Corvette of Jan Magnussen and Patrtick Long in the Flying Lizard Porsche came togeher in Turn 17. Long said his Porsche 911 got airborme after hitting a bump then banged into Corvette.

Tuesday morni ng. We had a number of o ffers but it was just a matter o f finding the right fit, G rubbs father Dale e xplained. His whole life, h es never wanted to let anyb ody down, so it was a tough d ecision for him to make. He didnt talk a lot about it, but he prayed about it. Football and faith played big parts, but not any larger than education for the senior who plans to go into pre-med and eventually work as a physicians assistant and pediatric oncologist. They have a very good biology program there, so that was a factor, Grubb said. And it really came down to the coach (Don Montgomery).

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING It was a busy signing day at Sebring Tuesday as Clarence Counts followed Matt Grubb by signing a scholarship to play for the Vikings of Valley City State University in Valley City, ND. Asparkplug in the Blue Streak defensive backfield, Counts now makes the leap to the NAIAlevel for a Viking squad that while it went 5-5 last season, does boast 25 Dakota Athletic Conference championships and six trips to the NAIA national playoffs. Its just good to be able to keep my football career going, Counts said. As well as to get a nice education. Something his mother Shantron Anderson was keen on. That was the goal, to be able to get a college education, she said. I am happy today that hes reached that goal and also has the opportunity to play football. Standing 5-foot, 7-inches, Counts knows what some see as limitations, but are just obstacles to overcome with his play. I feel like a play 6-feet tall, he said.

Counts heads north to join Vikings By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIt seemed like it would be a tough test, facing a Clewiston squad that Lake Placid hasnt had much success against in recent years. But this isnt recent years and these Lady Dragons made it a lopsided, 9-1 win over the Tigers Monday night. Its been a long-time coming for us to beat them, head coach Alesia Cheshire said. But this team is one of the closest teams, as far as teamwork, that Ive seen and theyre getting better and better every day. As evidence of the progress the team is making, when they first faced McKeel earlier this season, Lake Placid took a 17-0 drubbing. Their match-up on March 11, at McKeel no less, saw a 2-2 affair going into the seventh before the Wildcats eked out the 4-2 win. Their confidence is building, Cheshire said. As did their lead Monday night. Starting pitcher Laine Weber-Callahan zipped through the top of the first, retiring Clewiston in order, and then started things offensively with a double to the right field fence in the botLady Dragons gaining confidence See LP, page 5B By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.co m AVON PARK A late game power glit ch shut down the lights at Head Field and pos tponed the inevitab le Monday night when t he Hardee Wildcats be at Avon Park 4-2. We just did not ha ve the focus we needed , said Avon Park coa ch Whit Cornell. I don t know what else to com ment. I am not trying to be short, it was just a bad effort all around. The Devils held the ir own in the first coup le of innings, until erro rs gave Hardee a pass to score. Hardee scored in t he top of the first, b ut immediately exper ienced a set back wh en the sixth and seven th batters went out of order leaving runne rs on base.

When I went b ack out a piece of the car t hat was damaged before c aused another puncture. There were quite a few o verall lead chages over the course of the race. That included a move by Simon Pagenaud, taking the No. 01 Highcroft HPD to the point in the early hours of the race. It was the first time Highcroft has led at the 12 Hours of Sebring. Pagenaud lauded the Michelins and said it was great to duel with former teammate Pedro Lamy. Several penalties also were handed out before noon due to racing incidents ranging from exceeding pit lane speeds to coming in before the pits were open. Dicipline meted out spanned time in the penalty box to mandatory stop and go penalties.

Box 1538, Gastonia, NC 28053 or send an e-mail to mdutton@gastongazette.com The Bristol crowd, or lack thereof, overshadowed Kyle Buschs fourth victory in the past ve races at the track. The ofcial estimate of the Jeff Byrd 500 crowd was 120,000, which, as usual, appeared to be a bit exaggerated. Bristol once experienced 55 consecutive sellouts, a streak that ended a year before this race played to what appeared to be little more than half capacity. Jeff Burton has less than half as many points (74) as leader Kurt Busch (150). More pertinent to the Chase, still 22 races away, is the gap of 49 points separating Burton from 10th place. Jeff Gordon, in spite of a victory, ranks only 19th in Sprint Cup points. After four races, the Hendrick Motorsports teams occupy positions seven (Jimmie Johnson), nine (Dale Earnhardt Jr.), 10 (Mark Martin) and 19. Richard Childress Racings fortunes sagged in 2009, when the team expanded for a year to four teams. In 2010, all three drivers made the Chase. Back at four, RCR now ranks fth (newcomer Paul Menard), 15th (Kevin Harvick), 24th (Clint Bowyer) and 29th (Burton). Three active drivers have won ve times at Bristol: Kyle Busch, Kurt Busch and Jeff Gordon. The surprising lack of attendance at Bristol casts extra attention on the site of the next race, Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., which has struggled to draw crowds in recent years. No one eligible for the Nationwide Series championship has won a race yet. Or, for that matter, even come close. The team of the Nationwide points leader, Jason Lef er, ranks third in owner points, where the nishes of Cup drivers count. Whos hot: Kyle Busch is making a habit out of winning two races on the same weekend, especially at Bristol. ... Carl Edwards has a win and two runner-up nishes already. Whos not: Jeff Burton remains mired in the early-season points race, though he moved up slightly to 29th place. ... Once again, Jamie McMurray is off to a slow start. He is 26th. Edwards V E R S U SThe two tangled in Bristol Motor Speedways Nationwide Series race, the Scotts EZ Seed 300. Upon getting out of her wrecked No. 7 Chevy, Patrick said that Truex bounced off the wall into her, which wasnt true. The two cars drifted into each other, and blame for the crash was difficult to assign. Truex accepted the blame. I definitely feel bad about it, he said. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: This was a crash that shouldnt have happened. The matter of which car drifted into the other overlooks the fact that Patrick had plenty of room to avoid Truexs car.DANICA PATRICK VS. RYAN TRUEXBy Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekOn March 16, the principal elements of Chip Ganassis motorsports empire came together. Or at least got closer. NASCARs Jamie McMurray tested an Indy car at Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds, Ala., and Scott Dixon tested a Cup car at Talladega Superspeedway. For McMurray, it was little more than a whim. Dixon has NASCAR aspirations. Im intrigued by it, said Dixon. Sprint Cup is a massive sport and has a huge following. I think the thing thats most intriguing, as youve seen by the people who have tried to make the transition or have made the transition, its 43 cars that are very, very tight and very, very close. I think the tough part for me would be actually doing the 36 races a year. Thats a lot of travel. In praise of concrete Ryan Newmans praise of Bristol Motor Speedway goes right to its essence. The actual surface of the track. Concrete. I love the fact its concrete and doesnt seem like it changes a whole lot, said Newman. Once you get a car right, its typically right for 500 laps, which is difficult to get on some of the race tracks. Honestly, theres just no place like Bristol. Ive told people before that Bristol is like a baby superspeedway. If something happens in front of you, it may not be your fault, but you can get caught up in somebody elses wreck in the blink of an eye. Scaled down Only Mark Martin would compare Bristol to gasp! Talladega. Its 38 percent as big, 65 percent as fast and 91 percent as banked. Bristol is kind of like Talladega Superspeedway in the fact that anything can really happen, he said. Maybe not to the extreme that Talladega is, but it definitely has that capability. The best thing to do is be good right off the truck; qualify well; get a great pit box and a great starting position; and just stay up front all night. Not only does that help during the race itself, but it also gets everyones confidence up and gets them pumped up for the race. Au contraire Carl Edwards disputed the notion that passing is easier at Bristol since its surface and layout were revised in 2007. We all thought, well, man, thats going to make passing a lot easier, but really its been the opposite, he said. You can run side-by-side for 20 laps, but passing is really hard. titihdthtiti McMurray, Dixon swap Ganassi rides for a day By Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekBRISTOL, Tenn. What by any measure is a considerable achievement sweeping two races on the same NASCAR weekend is becoming a familiar attribute of Kyle Buschs career. In fact, Busch has won four of the past five races at Bristol Motor Speedway in what NASCAR refers to as its major touring series: Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck. The latest victories were in the Scotts EZ Seed 300, a Nationwide Series event, and the Food City Jeff Byrd 500, the weekends premier event in the Sprint Cup Series. The Cup victory was Buschs first of the season and 20th of his career. He is tied with Speedy Thompson for 33rd place on the series all-time list of winners. Busch has recently prospered by taking the high line around the .533-mile oval. Its just momentum, he said. Youre not having to hold your car so tight on the bottom of the race track. Slow it down. Get it to turn. You can carry more momentum and speed up there. What is noticeably absent in Buschs list of accomplishments is a Sprint Cup championship. He presently ranks sixth in the points standings, trailing the leader, his older brother Kurt, by 17. Racing to your potential, on most days, will get you a win, Kyle said. You dont really have to worry about that. It seems like were a lot better at some tracks than maybe some others that were working on and getting better at. Every time we unload, were racing for the win. If we can gather the wins up, the points will take care of themselves. Its only a matter of keeping track of your bad days. Busch, who is from Las Vegas, is still only 25 years old. He has three top-10 finishes in the seasons first four races, with a runner-up finish at Phoenix in addition to the Bristol victory. He has won at a wide variety of tracks, including nine victories on tracks of a mile or greater, two at so-called restrictor-plate tracks, seven on short tracks and two on road courses.Bristol Seems Easy For KyleBusch grabbing checkered flags all over the place recentlyJohn Clark/NASCAR This WeekThough the Jeff Byrd 500 was Kyle Buschs first Cup win of the season, the 25-year-old also won five straight races at Bristol. Hes won four of the past five races at the fan-favorite Bristol track and says he hopes to keep momentum for the season and on the track.

Patrick Ryan Truex Loud And To The PointsThis 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 watch NASCAR every week. I really enjoy it. DW (Darrell Waltrip) is my all-time favorite driver, but this year the noise from the cars on the track is so loud that you can hardly hear the commentors over the roar. What have they done to the sound? Please see what they can do to fix it. Suan Morgan Brunswick, Maine You arent the only fan who has complained about the sound of the cars drowning out the announcers on TV. Were not in a position to do anything about it other than print your letter. Perhaps someone with Fox (or the other networks and stations televising races) will pay heed. Dear NASCAR This Week, I just cannot figure out all the fuss about points. You turn on Race Hub, which I like better than some of the other NASCAR proactive shows, and all the talk, after only three races (now four) is who is where in the points, who has to get better, etc. (Youd) think it was the last race of the year. I refuse to carry a spreadsheet or calculator to a race, but I have carried binoculars. NASCAR needs to find something more of interest to the fans than trying to make a race out of a points system. All NASCAR fans would like is a great race on Sunday. The race is for fans. The points title is for drivers. Charles Jackson Autryville, N.C. We couldnt agree with you more.

Emory and Henry plays in t he Old Dominion Athletic C onference and has 11 conf erence championships under i ts belt.

There is also the benefit t hat the top quarterbacks on t he team, Dustin Beck and D rew Piscopo will be in their f inal season when Grubb j oins the team. That played a small part i n it, he admitted. It wasnt a deciding factor or anything, b ut more of a positive to k now that I can get in there, h elp the team however I can a nd learn for a year before g etting a chance to start. Something his former c oach doesnt see a problem with. He will succeed, in anything he does, former Sebring head coach Jared Hamlin said. Working three years with him, hes a smart kid and hes also football smart, which doesnt always go together. Hes got the ability, the work ethic and I have no doubt hell do what he needs to do. Grubb finished 16th in the state last season, throwing for 2,227 yards with 22 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Location also played a part, even if Virginia isnt exactly close by, in that there is family in nearby Pennsylvania and North Carolina as well as Virginia. Im looking forward to the experience, Grubb said, when reminded of the snow he will have to get used to during the winter months. But they also have hunting up there, so there will be a taste of home. Continued from 1B Grubb to perform in front of The Swarm tom of the inning. After stealing third, Weber-Callahan tagged and came home on a Taylor Test sacrifice fly for a 1-0 lead. The Tigers clawed back to tie with their lone run of the game in the second, but RBIs from Michelle Hunter and Test upped the margin to 3-1 after two. Things held there, with the Lake Placid defense stepping up in support of Weber-Callahans effort. In the fourth, Test made two outstanding plays at shortstop to keep Clewiston from threatening and according to Cheshire, Leigha Gersper made a catch on one of the hardest line drives Ive ever seen, at second base. The offense then added on as Bria Wilson took one well out of the yard for a lead-off homer to center in the bottom of the fourth. Gersper followed with a double to left, Test and RB I single and RBI hits fro m Breauna Corley and Arnet ia Gobourne for a 7-1 score. Two more came aroun d in the fifth with RBI com ing from Wilson and Webe rCallahan to all but fini sh the Lady Tigers off. Laine pitched real we ll and she has confidence wi th the defense behind her , Cheshire said. That real ly takes the pressure off an d lets her pitch witho ut thinking she has to stri ke everyone out. Thats a gre at thing to have.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAfter rolling off a torrid winning streak of 14 games in recent weeks, SFCC Panther baseball has been knocked off the tracks. After opening the Suncoast Conference schedule with a win at State College of Florida in Bradenton, South Florida dropped the remaining two games of that series and were swept this past weekend by Polk State College extending the Vikings hot streak to 18 straight. The Panthers dropped Fridays opener in Winter Haven by a 6-5 score before falling 10-4 Saturday and 86 Monday. We rattled off 1 4 straight because we we re finding ways to get the jo b done regardless of how w e played, head coach Ri ck Hitt said. We were hittin g with runners in scorin g position, which we have n ot done lately. As evidence of th is drought, the Panther s stranded 46 runners in t he last four games and load ed the bases eight times an d only produced two ru ns from those scenarios. What a stat, Hitt sai d.

SEBRING We are surv iving Daylight Savings T ime and by the time this a rticle prints, we will be into t he wonderful spring season. A ctually, the flowers and s hrubs have been so gorgeous a round Sebring during F ebruary/March that it seems w e are already celebrating r ebirth. Spring break from school m eans visitors and several y oungsters have been happily u tilizing the Lundgren Bike S ervice, a kind gesture on L ee and Shirleys part bringi ng happiness to lots of g randkids in the park. The D ambrowitz, Amell/Roberts a nd Lee grandchildren have a ll added several miles to the b ikes. The welcome laughter a nd energy displayed is a t reat our park residents are n ot accustomed to. Seems g reat to appreciate others j oyful times! You probably have seen o ur candid camera lady b uzzing around the park s napping away, especially at a ny function! Her photo madn ess has come to fruition w ith a lovely photo album S hirley Lundgren has assemb led for the 2011 season. Be s ure to spend a few minutes v iewing the winter activities a t Town and Country. The a lbum is available in the c lubhouse. Agreat job; thank y ou to Shirley for all her e fforts! Our sincere sympathy is e xtended to the family of W anda Dupree, who passed o n March 6. It was a privil ege to attend a memorial s ervice at the Lake Haven c lubhouse on March 16. W andas children/grandchild ren spoke eloquently of her k ind traits, her smile that l ights up your world and her p assion for bingo. Afinal t ribute to Wanda was a new g reat granddaughter (Emily) a rriving one week after her d eath to granddaughter Karen o f Orlando. Aside n ote...Wandas beloved cat, S pookie, was given to her n urse Betty from Highlands R egional, who has two happy l ittle boys as a result. Alovel y lady who will be greatly missed by many. At the final potluck dinner on March 16, in lieu of a 50/50 drawing, $127 was contributed to the American Red Cross for the Japanese relief efforts after the horrifying earthquake/tsunami. Donations are welcome at your local Highlands County Service Center. Be sure to designate in the memo area: Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami. The 12 Hours of Sebring officials provided a booth for our local Red Cross Service unit to collect donations which are so desperately needed. Thank you to Town and Country residents and Race track officials for these thoughtful gestures. Upcoming events include the Mens Breakfast group at Dots Restaurant and Ladies Luncheon at Caddyshack, both today. Our final event of the season is the Pool Party on Saturday, March 26, at 4 p.m. All HOAmembers are welcome to attend free. Be sure to sign up in advance. Menu consists of fried chicken, potato salad, coleslaw, baked beans, roll and dessert. We trust this will be a fun time to enjoy our neighbors and bid farewell to many who will be doing the northward trek soon. Thank you to Wendy Johnson and all who have assisted in many ways to provide varying activities. An out-of-park event we all need to support is the FMO District 6 meeting at 10 a.m. today at Tropical Harbor MHPin Lake Placid. We have a new President, Lucinda Volpe of Francis I MHP. Congratulations and thank you to Lucinda for accepting this important position. Other officers include Vice President Philip Mitchell of Hammock Mobile Estates; Vice President Tom Etchison of Crystal Lake Club; Secretary Catherine Healy of Silver Oaks MHP; and Lynn Middy, Treasurer, from Silver Oaks MHP. Thank you to each person for his/her service to our local Federation of Manufactured Home Owners of Florida Inc. and to our local mobile home park residents. New officers will be installed at this meeting. Neighbor Bill LaPeer is home recovering from 13 days in Orlando Florida Hospital. Doctors have hopefully nursed Bill back to normal and we trust he continues to be strengthened daily. Floyd Cummins has been nursing some bruises from a couple recent falls. We trust all with recent health problems are recuperating well. Several men from the park volunteered or attending the 12 Hours of Sebring. It was interesting to read Sebring International Raceway is Americas oldest permanent racing facility with this year being the 59th running of the Race. Another recent event some of us thoroughly enjoyed was the Sweet Adeline concert in Avon Park. An example of the wonderful talent Sebring folks are blessed with and coming up March 25 through April 10 at Highlands Little Theater is the musical comedy, The Wedding Singer. Seems we have varied activities using all types of talents in our small city. Several in the park have inquired about Chuck and I picking up garage sale items for the next Red Cross garage sale. Im sorry to report our last garage sale was held Feb. 12. However, there are available clothing donation drop boxes for recycled clothing with the Red Cross benefiting from the sale. Several boxes are available in the areas of Sebring, Avon Park and Lake Placid. The boxes have the Red Cross insignia displayed. For specific locations, call the office at 386-4440. To all those residents who will be traveling north soon, our prayers for safe travel and a happy blessed summer. LAKE PLACID On March 14th at the Monday morning coed coffee, our emcee was Donna Vanden Bergh and our coffee makers were Ken and Rose Wilson along with their son Rod Wild. George Susco, our manager was not available this morning. Behind Donna we had a display of 22 baskets to bid on. The baskets were filled with various items that would appeal to almost anyone. They were all made up by the residents who teamed up to buy the assortment of contents. Paula Bannister is the chairman of the Relay for Life committee. The team has done an outstanding job. Paula said they have already met their goal but she said the cause to cure cancer cannot be limited to a goal, you have to keep on striving to make the Relay for Life a success. Next Donna read the names of persons celebrating their birthdays the week of March 13-19. She asked Laura Bailie to play the piano and lead us in song. We all sang to Andy Anderson who was the only one present for his birthday. She also read the names of couples celebrating their anniversary, however no one was present. She extended best wishes to all and thanked Laura for providing the music. Next she asked all to come forward who are in charge of up coming activities.

Our hostesses were Susan Spurlock and Doris Dornbach, who made up little candy favors all done up in mini shamrock cupcake holders. The women all seemed to have a great time. Carol Noel stood up and told the group that the Military Soup and Sandwich went very well. They served 170. She told the residents that they are getting ready to sent the boxes out to service people stationed in Afghanistan and Iraq to please make sure the address are correct. Fred White told the group that the Computer Club was canceled due to the St Patricks Day Dinner. Speaking of St. Patricks Day, the tickets for the dinner have been sold out. March 19, we had the final dance of the season. The theme was Mardi Gras with the music provided by Frank -E. Today, residents from the original 13 colonies, including Vermont, will be having their luncheon at the Golden Corral beginning at 1:45 p.m. On March 30, Sherry White told the group that she is selling tickets for the Chili Dinner. Tickets are $6 each and the proceeds will go towards the Relay For Life Program. Donna thanked the group for their information and she then asked Carol Noel for the Sunshine report. Carol told the residents that she has set Thinking Of You sheets on the table for all to sign to the following: Kathleen Bishop who is having surgery, Betty and Jack Post, Joan Vladyka and a thinking of you sheet to Louise Smith who has just moved to a new home is Davenport. Before closing the meeting, Donna asked if we had any new residents. We have Mike and Barbara Collins who live on Bell Tower Avenue Joanne Rau introduced her sister Judith Saxton from Warren, Mich. Tuesday, March 15, we had ladies morning coffee. We had 32 ladies present. Our emcee and coffee maker was Vickie Echelberry. She read the names of people celebrating their birthday, however we had no one present. For anniversaries we had Marlene Hunt and Sylvia Fitch stood in as proxy for Marlenes husband Roger. We all sang to her. Vicky then asked the women to tell the group what type of career they did in the past before retirement. Surprisingly we had man y women who were scho ol teachers, or supervisor s, many worked in a bank, som e worked on a farm with the ir husbands and one was an author. We have so many ta lented women. Marily n Cromer told the group th at the St. Patricks Day Dinn er was sold out. The committ ee sold 181 tickets.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Aphone c all to the Avon Park F ounders Garden Club made c hoosing the March Yard of t he Month an easy job. The p icture-perfect yard of Betty a nd Bill Owens at 317 P eabody Circle was recomm ended by a friend. Welcoming you to the h ome, an arch covered with a v ine that will bloom with w hite flowers is flanked by t wo large plumbago bushes. T wo shaped gardenia bushes a re at each side of the walkw ay as you get to the porch. Other foundation plantings i nclude podocarpus, azalea, t ibichina and hibiscus. I nterspersed throughout the planting beds are many perennials that survived the winter and many newly planted annuals. These include bush daisies, lavender, sage, pansies, petunias, heather, impatiens, Mexican petunia, periwinkle, carpet roses, gold capella, scheffler and dusty miller. Going around the house, you also see a yesterday, today and tomorrow bush in bloom. There is a separate garden of knockout roses. Nestled in an alcove is a youth bed frame filled with impatiens. You follow the sound of trickling water to find a barrel fountain. There is also a bougainvillea tree that has survived the cold winter. The house was the first to be built in this development and two extra lots are included on the property. Planted on these lots are crepe myrtle and two colors of trumpet flower. Betty has liked bears since she was a child and has included many bear statuary in her landscape design. Atip given by Betty is to remove spent flower heads to encourage more flowering. We would also like to add that others be considerate and carry a bag to pick up after their dogs while taking them for a walk. To recommend a yard for the Yard of the Month, call 452-1927.

p entas should be the main p lants in your butterfly gard en because butterflies are a ttracted to them. Cuttings can be taken f rom the pentas to create n ew plants by planting them i n soil and keeping them m oist until established. It is b est to use the new growth o f the plant. The pentas s hould have the black stam en for them to feed on and t he dwarf pentas will not h elp the butterflies. The milkweed is another p lant for the butterflies to l ay their eggs and the caterp illars like them, also. W asps and birds are the e nemy for the butterfly. You c an create a flight cage to p rotect the eggs and caterpill ars. The eggs take about t hree days to hatch and a bout two weeks for the c hrysalis. However, caterpill ars cannot be moved from o ne plant to another unless it i s the appropriate plant for t hat species of the butterfly. S o, if you create a flight c age make sure you have t he proper plants in the cage. You can also create your o wn nectar containers for the b utterflies. Butterflies are a ttracted by color, so they m ay check out a plant but t hen will search for the prope r ones to feed on. It is good t o group the plants of the s ame color together. The M exican flame vine has lots o f pollen for the zebra longw ing butterfly. The zebra b utterfly lives two to six m onths while the monarch or s wallowtail butterflies can l ive two weeks to several m onths. The best book for our area i s Floridas Fabulous B utterflies by Thomas E mmel and Brian Kenny. A nother book for your l ibrary should be Your F lorida Guide to Butterfly G ardening, AGuide for D eep South by Jaret C. Daniels. Amilkweed plant was given away and won by Pat Jackson.

Many of you are habitually late. This is a common trait for most of us. Our husbands hate it, too. Believe it or not this has to do with our martyred attitude. Tardiness is a passive-aggressive behavior. I know you dont think it is. We are in control when we make people wait on us, consciously or unconsciously. The problem also arises because of our perfectionism; I just need to do one more thing. This may become more of a problem after you have your routines in place. So what is making us late? We are the reason because of our lack of thinking ahead. When we put a little forethought to our day and take precautions to keep ourselves from getting off track. This is why our Before Bed Routine is so important to a peaceful start to your day. Ask yourself: how much time do you spend searching for things? If you could put your hands on an item when you need it, this could save you precious time every day. Right now, where are your car keys? I keep mine clipped to my purse. Before I get out of the car, I hook them to my purse. I never have to hunt for my keys. This used to be a big problem for me. I would get down to the car and then have to run back up to the house to search for my keys. I have also hidden a key on my car in a magnetic case, just in case I get sidetracked again. Do you search for bills that need to be paid? When I first got organized, I devised a notebook similar to the control journal, except I didnt have routines in it. This was a portable zippered notebook with a handle. It had pockets, zippered pouches and it would hold a three-ring binder. In this notebook, I kept my bills to be paid, my check stubs, my file for my paid bills (at that time I kept every receipt: I dont do this anymore), pens, pencils, notebook paper, my menus, grocery list, greeting cards, thank you notes, paper clips, little stapler and stamps. This became my portable office. At work, on my break I could work on my menus or grocery list or at lunch, I could pay a few bills and work on my budget. This was a quiet time that I could take 15-20 minutes of uninterrupted time and take care of our finances, plan our menus and make out a grocery list. It was always with me. This was the proto-type for our Office in a Bag. Another reason we run late is we dont fill our cars up with gas when it is convenient. We wait till we are smack dab on empty and we are running behind schedule. This cost us time and our safety. Running late makes us rush and rushing can cause us to be careless. Keep a $20 bill hidden for emergencies or that opportune time to fill up. I also keep a $100 dollar bill stashed for larger problems. I rarely have to use it, but I know I have it, if needed. This gives me a sense of relief and that translates to less stress in my life. I have even done this when I only had thirteen cents to my name. It took a while to sav e it up, but I did it. inspiration sessions? We have to curb our think ing. When we hear ourselve s say, I can do that later. Le t this be the trigger that tells you, Right away is the easy way. Putting things off usu ally make them more difficu lt to do. The reality is we thin k, we dread, and we continue t o procrastinate until it just has to be done. The whole time we are beating ourselves up over n ot doing the task when it was s o simple. My Sweet Darling calls this the Do it Now Principle. You know that awful feeling when you should have put that roll of toilet paper in the holder when you first thought abou t it, now you really, really ne ed it. When you think about something that could be so simple to do right now, don t put it off until later. Now, th is is not getting sidetracked. I am talking about very short simple jobs that will save time and energy if done now You know what your grannys always said, A stitch in time, saves nine. Learning to ACTin advance instead of Re-Act will help you gain precious minutes to your day. Eventually this will become a habit and you will surprise yourself. I have had to look up and make sure I had paid a bill, because I did it without even thinking. This is a wonderful feeling. FLYing is so easy, when you look ahead.

If all mother-in-law relationships were judged solely by the letters in my column, many people would conclude that its an emotional minefield. I discussed this subject with a psychiatrist who shared that a mother-in-law who is perceived as overbearing may be one who was a conscientious mother. But now that her child is grown, she finds it difficult to relinquish her role as teacher and protector and quit hovering an interesting observation.A Mother-In-Laws PrayerO, Lord, help me to be glad when my son (or daughter) picks a mate. If he brings home a girl with two heads, let me love both of them equally. And when my son says, Mom, I want to get married,forbid that I should blurt out, How far along is she? And please, Lord, help me to get through the wedding preparations without a squabble with the other side.And drive from my mind the belief that had my child waited a while, he or she could have done better. Dear Lord, remind me daily that when I become a grandmother, my children dont want advice on how to raise their children any more than I did when I was raising mine. If you will help me to do these things, perhaps my children will find me a joy to be around, and maybe I wont have to write a Dear Abbyletter complaining about my children neglecting me. Amen.
