By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Over the weekend spectators at the Sebring Airport had an opportunity to watch a training session in preparation for the upcoming Sun 'n Fun Air Show in Lakeland. Civilian pilots with the Commemorative Air Force a group dedicated to flying vintage war planes in formation during air shows and the North American Trainers Association, gathered to take part in a formation clinic at the airport. Bob Wall, a seasoned pilot and certified trainer, explained that formation flying requires a minimum of four planes. Because getting four planes together in the same place at the same time is difficult, he said, clinics are held during the year. The event Saturday and Sunday was one of those training sessions. In order to formation fly during an air show a pilot must be specially certified and have one of two ratings: wingman or a lead pilot. Certifying for those ratings is also a part of the clinic's function. Wall, for example, is a check pilot, which means he is certified to evaluate another pilot's abilities. Because a clinic focuses on pilot training, it is not SFCC tops HawksPAGE1BAP eyes new way to handle budgetHabitat bus tour setPAGE2ASweet spring treatsPAGE12BAP to pay more for next managerPAGE2ANEWS-SUN Highlands County's Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Wednesday-Thursday, March 30-31, 2011www.newssun.comVolume 92/Number 37 | 50 cents www.newssun .com 079099401001 HighLow 86 69Complete Forecast PAGE 12A Showers possible in the afternoon Forecast Question: Do you think a Republican will win next year's presidential election?

"It has come to my attention that several calls have been made to my employer about me making the city look bad by either the news reports I have given or the fact that I have commentary on my show," Foster said. Foster's show is on 730 AM talk radio from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. Monday through Friday. Foster did not single out any one council member, but addressed his request directly to the board as a whole during the citizens not on the agenda portion of the city meeting. "Alot of people don't like what I say, but don't have the intestinal fortitude to take me on one-on-one. We don't deny anybody any opportunity to come and speak their opinion," Foster said. Foster stated that over the past 10 days, several calls were made to the Cohan Radio Group and that was an intimidation tactic and did not promote free speech.

Dr. Cary Pigman, emergency physician, will be leaving Florida Hospital for a brief period to serve in Iraq. Pigman is in the Army Reserve and will serve a brief tour in Iraq beginning in April. Pigman has not been deployed overseas since the late 1980s and found the opportunity to go over and be a part of the medical team irresistible. "When I took the call, he asked me 'Would you be interested in being an ER physician in Iraq?'I said, Yes.'I think I threw him off when I answered so quickly," said Pigman. Not only does Pigman heal the sick here in Sebring, but he also wants to be a part of taking care of his fellow soldiers. For Pigman, being an ER physician in a combat support hospital isn 't entirely about helping the so ldiers. It's about the families as well. "I want to do as much as I c an for these parents.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK City Council decided Monday to take a look at a new way of budgeting as it goes into next fiscal year. Interim City Manager Julian Deleon presented a percentage-based system for each department, capping their budgets at a percentage of total revenue. "I believe it gives the department heads more ownership of their budget," Councilman Terry Heston said. The new system would allocate each major department a percentage of estimated city revenue, basing the amount each could spend on income, not on potential need. "It will remove the idea of use it or lose it'from budgeting," Deleon pointed out. Under the new system, the general fund would get 20 percent of estimated revenue, the police department 32 percent, the fire department 18 percent, the streets department 13 percent and 17 percent of year's estimated revenue would go to parks and recreation. "Once everyone understands it, I think the department heads will like it," Mayor Sharon Schuler said. "If they actually knew what part of the budget they were going to get it, they could budget it instead of just satisfying someone on the budget." City employees and other council members pointed out that some of the percentages did not include service for debt or reserve for contingency. "Out of the 100 percent, you did not allocate for debt," Councilman Terry Heston noted. "Nor contingency or a rainy day fund." Finance Director Renee Green noted that the plan had some merit, but was not tested. "I'm all for trying something different. This is just an idea right now," Green said. "We are going to look at it and ballpark it and say Hey this is not going to work or hey this is going to work.'so let's try it." Avon Park firefighter Warren West reminded council that although the idea had merit, it was not a complete plan. "As we were looking through his pie chart, he (Deleon) had budgeted for police department as 31.6 percent and rounded up to 32 percent. But when he came to the fire department he rounded down to 18 percent. "That is a $60,000 cut in our department. We understand that this is a work in progress, but we are watching," West said. "I should have reviewed this closer," Deleon said. "We are not opposed to this pie chart, and he is definitely thinking outside the box, but we need some input," West said. "We will be watching," West repeated.

Former Mayor Tom M acklin expressed his conc ern that the council did n ot enter into a process t hat was fair to Bruce B ehrens, who was released a fter just six months as city m anager.

The flying this past weekend was for the pilots, not the spectators. But that doesn't mean there is nothing to see. Planes land and take off Saturday they were lifting off the ground two at a time perform fly-bys and touch-and-go landings. Before flying, the planes are lined up on the tarmac and visitors are allowed to examine them up close. The planes are all vintage war planes, with the vast majority being T-6 trainers, the type of plane used to train pilots not only in WW II, but Korea as well. South Africa was using T-6s into the 1990s, said Karen Stonich, who helped organize the event and whose husband, Stoney, is a pilot. "The T-6s trained more pilots than any other trainer," she said. "This is our passion," she added with a wide smile. Each plane is privately owned.

War planes make stop in Sebring use money from its general fund. FEMAmoney may only be used for projects that provide for safety in an emergency. CBDG have to be used for improvements to the community. The council is considering hardening town hall, a building that was never built to hurricane standards and is aging. The roof alone is about 18 years old. Because town hall is designated the disaster center, it is imperative its structure is sound. The town would like not only a new, upgraded roof, but impact resistant windows, frames and doors and an emergency generator. Emergency generators for the town's lift stations and waste water treatment plant are also needed. These are all eligible projects. What the town has to do know is assess the costs involved, which will require an engineering study. The grant would provide $400,000 to $450,000 for hard construction, and $150,000 for the cost of studies and permits. Town Council member Ray Royce had concerns. "I just don't want to move forward if the odds are against getting a grant," he said, Alday replied that everything on the proposed projects list was eligible, and the town met other requirements like the percentage of residents on moderate incomes and the fact that some of the money would be spent hardening waster water treatment plants.

N ot even the First Amendment t o the Constitution, w ith its protection o f flag burning and c urse words, has c aused such pass ionate debate as the S econd Amendment t o the Constitution a nd its protection of g un ownership.Make no mistake, the N ews-Sun fully supports an A merican citizen's right to k eep and bear arms. Guns have a legitimate p lace in American society, i ncluding in situations of s elf-defense. Hunting on a c risp early morning, and e njoying a venison steak that night are two of life's pleasures. We do, however, have reservations over some of the new gun legislation currently being debated in Tallahassee. Senate Bill 432 and House Bill 155 in particular dismay us. If passed, these bills would prohibit any doctor, or other medical professional, from asking patients if they own a gun, or live in a house with a gun. Afine of $500 has been recommended for doctors who ask the question. In a country built on freedom of speech, it seems hypocritical at best to muzzle a physician in the course of his or her work. Do we really want to have politicians intruding into the privacy of the doctor-patient relationship? Or dictating what a doctor may or may not say in the examining room? Then there is the issue of doctor-patient confidentiality. Who would report a doctor except for a patient? All of us expect our doctors to protect the privacy of our discussions. But shouldn't doctors be able to trust their patients too? Especially in situations like this. It's not like doctors are the gun police authorized to confiscate weapons from homes where children live. In fact, the gun owner's rights are firmly established, the most a doctor might do is recommend keeping a gun safe from children what is threatening about that? We understand that many people feel under siege these days, but it seems irrational to target doctors as boogie monsters the saboteurs of gun ownership and the American way.

That's the extraordinary question the Make-AWish Foundation of Southern Florida asks courageous children in the community every day. While doctors provide the medicine, having a heartfelt wish come true mends a child's spirit, helping them feel like a carefree kid again. The foundation that I'm fortunate enough to lead grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Whether a child chooses to go somewhere exotic, meets a favorite celebrity, receives a treasured gift, or gets to experience a dream occupation for the day, each wish experience is tailor-made to exceed expectations, with no cost to the family or "strings" attached. In Southern Florida, we grant a wish every 16 hours, 365 days a year, and have made more than 7,500 dreams come true in our 27year history. With the average cost of a wish being $5,000, and receiving no state or federal funding, Make-A-Wish relies on fundraisers, corporate sponsorships and donations from the general public to bring sunshine into the lives of local families. We also count on the time and effort contributed by volunteers. For every wish that we grant, there are at least two volunteers who played a role in making that happen. Carol Bannister of Port St. Lucie, a Make-AWish volunteer since 2008, is one of our "fairy godmothers." "Being a wish granter is the most rewarding experience that I've had Just to see how excited each wish child gets and how grateful their fami ly is brings joy to my heart. Being a par t of the entire proce ss is a phenomenal feeling." Words like Carol's are ones we often hea r, and many volunteers find that they end up getting mo re out of the experience than they giv e. Do you possess passion, creativity and the desire to help make a difference in th e lives of local children? We have an immediate need for volunteer wish granters in the Sebring area to work in teams of two as they help sick children identify their greatest wishes and coordinate with Foundation staff to make each wish come true. Wishes for Highlands County children like Anna Marie, who met the cast of iCarly in Los Angeles, Brittany, who was a VIPat Disney World, or shopping spree-recipient Tessa. There is a one-day Wish Granter training session in Sebring on Saturday, April 9. To become a wish granter, you must be at least 21 yea rs of age, undergo a criminal background check and com mit to one year of service (four wishes a year). If you are interested in learning more about the all important role of wish granter, please contact Ren ee Shore at (888) 773-9474, ext. 303 or rshore@sflawish.org. For more information about the work that we do, to make a donation, or refe r a child that may be eligible to receive a wish, contact th e foundation by phone (the number is in the previous paragraph) or connect with us online at www.sfla.wish.org, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Norman Wedderburn is the President & CEO of the Make-AWish Foundation of Southern Florida. Making a difference, one child at a time Guest Column Norman Wedderburn Energy industries must come together E ditor: We grew up in the city of P ittsburgh during the second World W ar. The steel mills roared 24/7. S ulfur smells permeated the entire c ity. Smoke and soot rained heavy t hroughout. Soot as large as pumpk in seeds fell on us and you had to p lace newspaper under all open w indows to catch some of the f lakes. So, when we heard about nuclear p ower, we were thrilled and so c heap that it would be almost free. W hen the first plant opened in P ennsylvania, we packed up the c hildren and drove out to see it for o urselves. How lovely it looked in t he clear sunshine, quiet and odorl ess too. But this dream has turned into a n ightmare. The plants in Japan h ave proven that to us. Chernobyl, we said, was done on t he cheap with Russian technology. T hree mile was a fluke? But J apanese people are anything but s loppy. They are precise in all t hings. They are sticklers for doing t hings in the proper way. They too f ailed to understand all that can go w rong when designing. This technology is too dangero us. Radiation is now in the milk and t he spinach and the seaweed that t hey eat and the fish are too cont aminated. The plants will need to b e buried as in Chernobyl. We have been given the sun. We h ave been given the wind. We have b een given brains to understand h ow to use these things. The m oney that the government was g oing to spend on nuclear power s hould be put to upgrading the power grid system that has not been upgraded since the 1940s. We lose almost 30 percent of what we generate in transmission. We need a real push in insulation of all our homes and buildings. We need to turn out some of the lights that we keep burning all night in our cities. Start with the Capitol building first. We do not need atmosphere lighting anymore. We should ask the power company here in Florida to use some of the money it has collected to help the citizens here to insulate and not to build another nuclear plant. I know that it is hard to accept the fact that we really are our brother's keeper and we are all on this planet together. All the money in the world will not help us in the long run. The energy industries must all come to believe what all the religions have tried so hard to tell us. We are our brother's keepers. Their children will inherit a planet that will be uninhabitable unless we do something and fast. Irene Hasapes SebringEditorial was right on targetEditor: Your editorial of March 20, 2011 re. Highlands County commission and the Town Council of Lake Placid, held at the Lake Placid High School, is exactly what has happened. The commissioners have honored the "gifting" of the Placid Utility to the Town of Lake Placid. I am deeply concerned with the quality of our water and sewer as the Town of Lake Placid has proven that they do not maintain what they have. The Oak Hill Cemetery has become a nightmare of neglect, volunteers are now in the process of a major cleanup. With the passage of the town's Comprehensive Plan, annexation will result in higher property taxes. Millage rate for the county is 15.2757, the town of Lake Placid is 19.0857, no one has really touched on this point. The Placid Utility operates in the black. This is a gift to the Town of Lake Placid. Annexation will benefit the few that are politically connected. The citizens will not be well served. New jobs will not be created for them as "malignant nepotism" raises its ugly head. The "Dog and Pony" show was scripted and rehearsed. It was insulting to the many tax payers in attendance. "American greed" is flourishing and I see a large new building on the drawing board called the New Town Hall of Lake Placid. I thank you for your candid, on target editorial. Grace D. Thrasher Lake PlacidAmerica needs to regain controlEditor: Ronald Reagan Legacy: The American working class wishes to thank you for an illegal work force that numbers in the millions. That illegal work force has now put the American Dream out of reach of millions of Americans. It has also destroyed the lives of millions home and property owners, putting our nation's middle class out of their homes and to foreclosures brought about by the loss of jobs to an illegal work force. This disruption of our infrastructure due to the illegal work force has created a greater the past American Civil War. The American working class wishes to thank you for the possible 600 million new workers to compete in the work place. I am sure it will have a huge impact on the economy, the wage scale and all social programs for many years to come. Why the assumed figure of 600 million? The first 3 million you granted amnesty to plus the 26 family members that the government figures will be eligible to follow. This plus the 20 million plus that were enticed to enter illegally because of the first amnesty. Twenty-three million plus 26 million equals 598 million people. Going forward, we are now rea ping the benefits of Reagan and the two political parties who put our immigration system into collapse and destroyed America's entire economic system. In the next election cycle, put a ll of the incumbent office holders in the unemployment line. For the love of all working clas s, who have lost their jobs, homes and the American Dream, send all illegals home, along with all gues t workers who have overstayed the ir visas. All immigration for the foresee able future should be canceled so that the American government can get control of a runaway problem The government should fine heavy every company, both large and small, that is using an illegal work force. This illegal problem has brought democracy to its knees. It has done more to destroy America than anything in past his tory. The problem is not being addressed by government, but when it does, it will make our firs t Civil War look like a small blip, i n American history. The American immigration system will not work without a quota system that can be verified. Ronald Reagan's own words, "Trust, but verify." He should hav e followed his own words and applied this to the illegal invasion from Mexico and never signed the amnesty for the first three million illegals. Rewarding criminals is never th e right thing to do for any government. To encourage crime is a crime. Billie E.

Page 6ANews-SunWednesday, March 30, 2011www.newssun.com B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Town c ouncil heard bad news r ecently, when two trees r emoved from Devane Park t urned out to have their roots t ightly wound around a major w ater main that crosses under t he park. The pipe is cast iron and d escribed by Utility Director G ary Freeman as an "old, old p ipe." The concern is that grindi ng out the tree stumps could d amage the pipe, or that the p ipe could fail after the park i s renovated. "I'd hate to have the park finished and then have to dig it up to fix (the pipe)," council member Steve Bastardi said. Fellow councilman Ray Royce agreed. "If ever there was a time to put in a new pipe, now is the time," he said. Utility Director Gary Freeman said the length of 6inch PVC needed would run about $500, and the two valves needed would cost about $600 apiece. By using in-house labor the pipe could be laid for less than the $5,000 limit on non-bid projects. The council voted to lay the new pipe. It is not yet known if this would delay the park renovation, which is otherwise running on schedule. In other action, the town council decided to put off voting on new cemetery charges at their second hearing because some details were still not clearly stated. The council did pass on first reading Ordinance 11633, which sets out the creation of an civilian advisory utility board. This is part of the town's plan to become a regional water utility. Old pipe rooted in Devane Park a re in good hands if somet hing happens to them," P igman said. Pigman's heroic spirit and a ltruism will be missed by t he doctors, nurses and p atients at Florida Hospital. M any gathered at the send off i ncluding the president of the m edical staff, Dr. Miguel B eltre, who made it known j ust how loved Pigman is by e veryone he touches. "My patients say to me Hey, you know that guy P igman? He is good,"" Beltre s aid with a laugh. Among others with kind w ords to say was Director of N urses Deb Vaughn. "It is a day of celebration a nd sorrow. You will be g reatly, greatly missed. Come b ack to us safely and God s peed," said Vaughn. Pigman's wife of 14 years, Darlene, was also present at the send-off and received much love and support from the medical staff. "What are you going to do?" asked a colleague of Pigman. Mrs. Pigman smiled and responded, "Well my initial plan was to join Gold's Gym. They have a really nice pool. I was planning to swim and swim and swim that way I'd be tired at night and not restless. That's what I'm worried about the most, the nights," she said. The hospital staff offered Mrs. Pigman all the support she might need to make it until her husband returns. "We will have one huge Christmas and welcome back party when you return," said CEO Tim Cook. Pigman is scheduled to deploy on April 20 and will return mid-December.

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

By JOJI SAKURAI Associated PressTOKYO If Japan has a f ield of dreams, it's a wellg roomed patch of grass and d irt called Koshien. Twice a year, high school b aseball teams compete at the f ield outside Kobe in nationa lly televised tournaments t hat rivet the country. Last week, at the start of t he spring tournament, a teen s tood on a podium in front of h ome plate and made a s peech watched by millions, w ith a dignity and conviction s ome Japanese find lacking i n their leaders as the nation c onfronts its earthquake and t sunami calamity. "We were born 16 years a go, in the year of the great K obe earthquake," said S hinsuke Noyama, a team capt ain chosen to represent playe rs at the opening ceremony, h is face grim and chest proud. Today, in the great east Japan e arthquake, many precious l ives have been lost, and our s ouls are filled with sorrow." Baseball, long popular in Japan, rallied the country after World War II, providing welcome distraction while serving as a symbol of the cooperation, hard work, and self-sacrifice needed to rebuild the devastated land. It could be expected to play a similar role in the latest calamity, but an ugly squabble over whether to postpone opening day has smeared the image of the professional game. Not only that, Japan's tradition-steeped national sport, sumo, is in disgrace over a match-fixing scandal, its spring tournament canceled in an unprecedented act of contrition. Now the nation is turning elsewhere for a glimmer of hope: fresh-faced adolescents who play their hearts out on the baseball field with a seriousness and integrity sometimes missing from their pro heroes. Hours after Noyama spoke, his team crashed out in the first round. But his speech, made against a backdrop of teams lined up like squadrons on the diamond, was played over and over on national TV, even into the morning of the next day. "It was much more beautiful than some mediocre politician's speech, this 16year-old youngster performing so magnificently, with that booming voice," said Akira Kawaii, a children's story writer walking toward Tokyo's Shimbashi train station. "Pro ball is all about money, high school baseball is about passion." To put Japan's love of high school baseball in perspective, it generates the same kind of excitement as "March Madness," the ongoing college basketball championships in the United States. It's a reaffirmation of values and identity, an occasion for national bonding, and an expression of nostalgia for the purity and vigor of youth. To be sure, high school baseball is a big deal for reasons other than national identity: Big bucks are at stake with hawk-eyed scouts looking for hot prospects. Hideki Matsui, Daisuke Matsuzaka, and Ichiro Suzuki all now playing in the American professional leagues first became household names in Japan after memorable performances in high school. But in Japanese high school baseball, losers attract almost as much attention as winners, and even the nohopes garner a big chunk of the televised commentary. Fans are touched to see these youths giving their all, with the same palpable sense of purpose, even when they're losing 11-0 in the eighth inning. The teenage players ha ve at least momentarily tak en over the unifying role that t he pros carried out after the wa r. During the opening cer emony, the Tohoku Hig h School team based in tsunami-ravaged Miyagi pr eBy DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comMonday's rains washed out S outh Florida's match-up at P olk State College, a game in w hich the Panthers were s urely hoping to get a little p ayback. It was a three-game sweep i n a recent series with the V ikings that had pushed S FCCs losing streak to five g ames. That streak, which foll owed an unprecedentd 14g ame winning streak, would r each six games with last W ednesday's home loss to v isiting Hillsborough before t he Panthers broke through w ith Friday's 2-1 win in T ampa, behind the outstandi ng pitching of Andres Pops" Lopez. Things look like they m ight fall off track again this p ast Saturday, however, as t he Panthers dug themselves a n early hole before winning t he rubber game of the threeg ame series with the Hawks, 5 -4 in 10 innings. Adam Quiles got the start S aturday, but control probl ems, along with some spotty d efense allowed H illsborough to go up early a nd bring southpaw Richard W hiteleather in from the b ullpen in the third inning. The elusive strike zone would continue, however, bringing Colby Fairfax on in the fourth with another run coming in. But Farifax settled in, throwing scoreless inning after scoreless inning the rest of the way, while his offense started the comeback. "(Fairfax) was as tough as I have seen him in a while," head coach Rick Hitt said. Keeping the Hawks off the board was key and South Florida eventually caught all the way up, tying it and sendSPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, March 30, 2011 NASCAR This WeekPage 4 B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE SFCC catcher Brett Clements protects home plate and prevents Hillsborough's Derrick Hudgins from scoring in Saturday's 6-5, extra-inning win over the visiting Hawks.

It stocked the reservoir with 85,000 juvenile bass on March 25. In December 2010, the FWC also stocked Medard with 300,000 bluegills. This week's bass-stocking is scheduled to be followed by the stocking of approximately 74,000 redear sunfish (shellcracker), later this spring. All stocked fish were spawned at the FWC's Largemouth Bass Research Center in Webster. Currently closed to fishing, Medard Reservoir will reopen when the lake naturally refills to its 770acre capacity. Apopular freshwaterfishing destination for local anglers, the lake was drained in November 2009 to refurbish the water-control structure on its southwest end. Construction was com pleted on that structure in spring 2010, and the la ke began to refill. Other improvemen ts include the placing of more than 2,000 tons of concrete rubble from t he old water-control structu re into long furrows made b y draglines when the ar ea was an active phospha te mine. Once the lake complet ely refills, these rubb le beds should attract signi ficant numbers of nati ve sport fish.

f ecture marched onto the f ield carrying the school bann er to a wave of emotional a pplause. "The tournament shows y ou can make sports speak to t he needs even of a tragic m oment," said William Kelly, a Japan scholar at Yale U niversity. "And professional b aseball shows how you can a lso lose that opportunity." The discord that has r ocked Japan's two profess ional leagues at a time the c ountry needs unity has s hocked the country. The more powerful Central L eague balked at postponing i ts season out of respect for d isaster victims, and its Y omiuri Giants Japan's m ost popular team insiste d it would hold electricityg uzzling night games at a t ime many families are eating d inner by candlelight because o f rolling blackouts. Fans were outraged. Players hinted at a possible b oycott. And the government press ured the Central League to r econsider. The Giants, widely viewed a s holding disproportional c lout in baseball decisionm aking, were singled out for a ccusations of greed and h eavy-handedness. "Are these the circums tances where we should be d oing this?" fumed Senichi H oshino, the charismatic form er manager of the Hanshin T igers, who play at Koshien a nd are the chief rival of the T okyo-based Giants. Early last week, the C entral League agreed to p ostpone the season's start to M arch 29, and the Giants s aid they would play more d ay games and conserve e nergy during night games. On Thursday, the league c aved in completely, postponi ng its season to April 12 in l ine with the Pacific League. But the damage has been d one. "These are very u nseemly debates," said Y ale's Kelly. "Baseball has s truck out." In contrast, the high school p layers have struck a strong c hord. The tournament coincides w ith another important ritual o f youth: school graduation, w hich in Japan comes in e arly spring. TVviewers saw images of b aseball heroics on the tourn ament's opening day set a gainst scenes of junior high s tudents bowing deeply as t hey received diplomas in K esennuma a pulverized t own in Miyagi prefecture t hen breaking down in tears a nd hugging each other. "Making the effort, selfs acrifice, taking care of the n ext guy, all that's wrapped u p into one package, and it's s ymbolized by high school b aseball," said Robert W hiting, author of "You G otta have Wa," a book on t he culture clashes faced by Americans playing for Japanese teams. "It has this purity toward life and sports that professional baseball with its emphasis on making money doesn't." Japan's approach to baseball differs vastly from the more individualistic U.S. It's about the collective good and honing the spirit in a way akin to a martial art. Whiting likes to point out that if you're hit in the face by a ball in school practice, it's forbidden to say "it hurts." It is, however, permissible to say "it itches." In a game at the tournament last week, catcher Takahiro Suzuki lost two front teeth when a wild throw hit him in the face. He left the field for treatment, then came back minutes later to guide his pitcher to the last two outs. The next inning, his lips swollen and the gap in his mouth red with blood, he hit a double that scored the game-winning run. That spirit may be useful in times of national catastrophe. "Baseball in Japan has some values that it tries to associate with itself," said Kelly, "that turn out at this moment to be the values that people want." www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, March 30, 2011Page 3B SUPPORTYOUR 385-3497HIGHLANDS COUNTYS OLDEST ESTABLISHED HEARING AID OFFICE130 S.

Pacing the offense were B randon Kirby with three h its in five at-bats, David S amperi, with both of his g oing for doubles, and Sam M organ having a 2-for-4 d ay. "Both games this weekend w ere hard-fought," Hitt said. That now makes six oner un games played in our last s even." Which could play well d own the stretch, being batt le tested in tight contests, s uch as Friday's win that s aw Lopez get all but two o uts of the game, 10 via the s trikeout. Tied 1-1 into the fnal frame, Kyle Jackson popped a solo-shot out of the yard to provide for the final margin before Lopez and the Panther bullpen ended it in the bottom of the frame. "We're looking to play better and continue our modest run," Hitt said. South Florida will look to do that, weather permitting, with St. Petersburg coming to town both today and Saturday for a two-game tilt. Currently, Polk State leads the Suncoast Conference standings with a perfect 8-0 record, with three teams bunched up behind vying for second. State College of Florida holds second, at the moment, with a 4-5 record, one game ahead of SFCCs 3-6 mark, which itself is a half-game up on Hillsborough. St. Petersburg, while playing their season and conference schedule, is spending the year on probation due to violations.

Box 1538, Gastonia, NC 28053 or send an e-mail to mdutton@gastongazette.com In the past four races, Dale Earnhardt Jr. has an eighth, a 10th, an 11th and a 12th. Hes not winning, or coming that close, but hes considerably more consistent. Does an incredible, breathtaking “nish trump the uneventful spectacle that preceded it? In the memory of most ƒ yes. Five races, “ve different winners. Five straight championships by Jimmie Johnson undermines the level of competition. The start of the season doesnt. Five weeks after the Daytona 500, Trevor Bayne has crashed to earth. Hes probably got money in his pocket, though. Mainly, it was inevitable. Attendance “ gures are impossible to decipher, simply because its obvious that all are exaggerated. Compared with one season to others is predicated on the fact that the “ gures were equally exaggerated over time, which is, of course, ridiculous. Suf“ce it to say, though, that Auto Club Speedways attendance was a step in the right direction. The currently fashionable talking point regarding Auto Club Speedway is that it is a venue that is helped, not hurt, by the loss of a Sprint Cup date. How convenient. Slumping Denny Hamlin is traditionally strong at the next two tracks, Martinsville and Texas. If he comes out of those races struggling, hes got real problems. If he wins them both, au contraire. Either Hamlin or Jimmie Johnson has won the past nine races at Martinsville Speedway. Everything about Martinsville is unique, from the layout to the atmosphere to the hot dogs to the fans. Whos hot: So far, Carl Edwards is never bad, always good and quite often superlative. ... Kevin Harvick is putting to rest rumors of Richard Childress Racings demise. Whos not: So far, Denny Hamlin has been unable to ful“ ll his contender obligations. ... Greg Bif” e remains mired in 20th place in points. Edwards V E R S U SHarvick has been adamant about what other drivers just gloss over: Johnson must be stopped, and Harvick wants to be the guy who does it. His daring pass at Auto Club Speedway was a step in the right direction. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: One great advantage Johnson has is that he is relatively unconcerned at this stage. Hes the guy with five straight titles.ŽKEVIN HARVICK VS. JIMMIE JOHNSONBy Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekJimmie Johnson has won more Sprint Cup races (five) than anyone else at Auto Club Speedway, which happens to be the track closest to his El Cajon, Calif., home. This time he had to settle for second to Kevin Harvick. Theres the matter of five straight championships, too, of course. Johnson is now fifth in the Cup standings, though still awaiting his first victory. The perennial champions season to date has been as smooth as a matinee idol. I think were in good shape,Ž said Johnson. Were not where we want to be. I think we still have a lot of room for improvement ƒ A lot of room to grow.Ž Come to think of it, Johnson says that every year at this point. Big to-do about nothing „ Spewing forth electronically from Fontana were bulletins to the effect that Carl Edwards still owesŽ Kyle Busch one. Its true. Edwards said he still owed him one,Ž but the context was no different than what a losing manager might say after the seventh game of the World Series. What Edwards actually said was: All this talk is talk, but the reality is that I didnt wreck (Busch) at Bristol. If I could have gotten to him with one or two laps to go, I might have moved him out of the way, but Im not going to intentionally go try to ruin his day or anything. Its not like that. I just feel like the least he can give me is one little spot at the end of a race.Ž The heat of battle often changes things, but nothing Edwards said was particularly objectionable or even controversial. Nor were Buschs retorts. As a practical matter „ It was the fictitious Harry Hogge (Days of ThunderŽ) who most notably said rubbin is racin.Ž The generally accepted rule of thumb is that nudging a driver on a short track is acceptable ƒ but knocking him out of the way isnt. A rubŽ is an act of great skill. A wreckŽ is an act of great destruction. Its a bit more difficult to apply, by the way, to an intermediate, high-speed track such as Auto Club Speedway, where speeds and implications are higher. Smaller openings „ NASCAR officials announced the restrictor-plate openings for the April 17 Cup race at Talladega will be 7/8ths of an inch, down 1/64th from the plates used in the Daytona 500 and 4/64ths less than Talladegas two 2010 races. The change should reduce speeds. JhWthtt Johnsons season progressing nicely, thanks By Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekPaul Menard arrived at Auto Club Speedway in a new role. He was suddenly the sensation of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Even after settling for 16th place at the Fontana, Calif., track, Menard remained seventh in the points standings, 23 points behind leader Carl Edwards and three ahead of Juan Pablo Montoya, the Auto Club 400 pole winner. Its been a steady uphill climb for the 30-year-old Menard, who is from Eau Claire, Wis. He landed a ride at Richard Childress Racing this year, and so far, it has made quite a difference. Weve run strong on four totally different types of race tracks (entering Fontana), which, for a startup team, is a cool thing.Ž Prior to teammate Kevin Harvicks victory, Menard had been a bright spot at a team otherwise struggling. Menards three teammates all improved their points positions, with Harvick moving up to ninth, Clint Bowyer to 17th and Jeff Burton to 25th. Everybody is just racing so hard, youre going to have wrecks,Ž said Menard. The way the points are (now), its tough to bounce back (and) a bad run really hurts you more so than the past.Ž Referring to his teammates, he added, Theyve got the speed; (and) theyve got the talent on the race teams to come back. I dont foresee them being down there for very long.Ž Menards best career finish was a second place at Talladega Superspeedway on Oct. 5, 2008. His fifth-place finish in Bristols Jeff Byrd 500 on May 20 was his second top-10 showing of the season. He has finished no worse than 17th in the seasons five races to date. In 152 career Cup starts, Menard has won a pole and collected three top-five finishes. He won a race in what was then the Busch Series at The Milwaukee Mile on June 24, 2006. This is Menards fifth full Cup season. In 2010, he finished a career-best 23rd in the Cup standings while competing at Richard Petty Motorsports.Menard Staying Up In The RanksRCR driver a consistent force among top 10 this seasonJohn Clark/NASCAR This WeekIn his fifth full season of Cup racing, Paul Menard has battled competitors and five different tracks while staying among the p oints leaders. PAUL MENARD SPRINT CUP SERIESNo. 27 SERTA/MENARDS CHEVROLETHeaven on Wheels aheadOn the night before Martinsville Speedways Sprint Cup race, the Rives Theatre at 215 E. Church St., Martinsville, is hosting a presentation of Heaven on Wheels,Ž a musical comedy on the history of NASCAR. The evening begins with music from NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton, who wrote a song titled Martinsville.Ž It all begins at 8 p.m., April 2, and tickets are only $8. Harvick Johnson No. 43 and Panch Slighted?This Week welcomes letters to the editor, but please be aware that we have room for only a few each week. Well do our best to select the best, but individual replies are impossible due to the bulk of mail received. Please do not send stamped and self-addressed envelopes with your letters, which should be addressed to: NASCAR This Week, The Gaston Gazette, P.O. Box 1538, Gastonia, N.C. 28053. Dear NASCAR This Week, Since Richard Petty was the beginning of NASCAR, I was wondering if his number, 43, had anything to do with NASCAR only starting 43 cars? Is this just a coincidence or is there some significance behind it? Ronald Denk Clyde, Kan. Its just a coincidence. The fields originally grew to 43 in the 1990s because of the advent of an ex-champions provisional. At the time, the field consisted of 42, plus an ex-champion if he did not otherwise qualify. Eventually the standard size of the field was extended permanently to 43. Dear NASCAR This Week, I would like to say that I am very disappointed with NASCAR. The 2011 Daytona 500 marked the 50th race since Marvin Panch won the race in 1961 driving a borrowed, year-old Pontiac and (averaging) just under 150 mph for 500 miles. I watched everything I could during (Speedweeks), and no one even mentioned Panchs accomplishments. Come on. Mr. Panch is 84 years old, and it looks like NASCAR dropped the ball. ƒ I just think NASCAR was very insensitive. Steve Brinkley Chinquapin, N.C. Marvin Panch was honored in some quarters at Daytona, particularly in radio coverage of the events. In fairness, the oversight was probably the fault of television, not NASCAR.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Garden Club of Sebring has chosen to celebrate the centennial of the city of Sebring by refurbishing the Blue Star Memorial Marker in front of the CVS Pharmacy, U.S. 27 South. The 60-year-old marker was unreadable. The club hired Tom Stelling of Daytona Beach, known as "The Tombstone Cleaner," to restore the marker to its former glory. Stelling travels the state revamping memorials. Using a grinder and chemicals he cleans the metal, then repaints the background and painstakingly retouches each letter with gold paint. The star at the top of the sign is painted a bird's egg blue. The Blue Star Memorial Markers were first placed on highways across America starting in 1945 to commemorate veterans who have defended America. Garden clubs in each state were asked to ma ke this project part of their civ ic responsibility. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, March 30, 2011Page 5B E.O.

DearAbby: I have been married for 21 years, and the past eight or 10 of them haven't been good. I have tried to get my wife to go camping, out to dinner or to bluegrass concerts we both love. I can't convince her to do any of these things with me. But when her sister calls wanting her to go somewhere, she's gone and stays out all day. About two years ago I started going out alone to clubs that feature bluegrass music on Fridays and Saturdays. I met a wonderful lady at one of them and we have gotten close. I have told her I love her. We have a lot in common, and she cares for me, too. I have not been unfaithful to my wife (yet), but I don't know how much more I can handle. I am lonely and miserable. Abby, I don't know what to do. Please advise before I do something stupid. I'm an avid reader of your column and I trust your advice. Tempted Down South Dear Tempted: Marriage is like a garden. If it isn't tended and fertilized occasionally, it withers. It appears you and your wife stopped communicating not long after your 10th anniversary. Sneaking around is not the answer to your problem. It's unfair to your wife and to the woman you say you love. So man up and offer your wife the option of intensive marriage counseling if you want to save your marriage and your assets, that is. But do not pursue the extramarital relationship until and unless you are free to do so. DearAbby: I have been married to a wonderful guy for four years, and I'm fortunate to have nice and caring in-laws. My only issue with them is the personal questions they ask like how much money people make. Abby, they know exactly how much their children make, as well as the amount of their son-in-law's salary. Once I'm out of graduate school and settled into my career, I know they will ask me. I feel my finances are my personal business and no one else's especially if my husband and I are living comfortably. How do I handle the situation when my inlaws ask me about my income? I don't want to be rude, but I think it's intrusive and too personal. Not Quoting Figur es DearNot Quoting: Start now and tell your husband if you haven't already ho w you feel about questions about how much people earn. That way he'll be less inclined to "spill" when his parents start pumping him for the information. When they ask you, say that you are not comfortable with th at question because you feel i t is too personal. Smile when you say it, and remember you are not obligated to answer every question som eone asks of you. DearAbby: I have been estranged from our grandchildren for nine years. On e of them is now 18 and we would like to reach out and contact her, but have no ide a how to do it. We don't know what caused the estrangement with her parents, but we have never stopped loving our grandchildren. How do you contact someone wh o isn't in the phone book, is o f age and across the country? Bonney Jean in Hawa ii DearBonney: You have written to me for so many years, I feel like I know yo u. My heart goes out to you in this I'm sorry to say no t uncommon predicament. A way to locate your granddaughter would be to do it via a Google search. I wish you luck. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Over the weekend spectators at the Sebring Airport had an opportunity to watch a training session in preparation for the upcoming Sun n Fun Air Show in Lakeland. Civilian pilots with the Commemorative Air Force a group dedicated to flying vintage war planes in formation during air shows and the North American Trainers Association, gathered to take part in a formation clinic at the airport. Bob Wall, a seasoned pilot and certified trainer, explained that formation flying requires a minimum of four planes. Because getting four planes together in the same place at the same time is difficult, he said, clinics are held during the year. The event Saturday and Sunday was one of those training sessions. In order to formation fly during an air show a pilot must be specially certified and have one of two ratings: wingman or a lead pilot. Certifying for those ratings is also a part of the clinics function. Wall, for example, is a check pilot, which means he is certified to evaluate another pilots abilities. Because a clinic focuses on pilot training, it is not SFCC tops HawksPAGE1BAP eyes new way to handle budgetHabitat bus tour setPAGE2ASweet spring treatsPAGE12BAP to pay more for next managerPAGE2ANEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Wednesday-Thursday, March 30-31, 2011 www.newssun.com Volume 92/Number 37 | 50 cents www.newssun.com 079099401001 HighLow 86 69Complete Forecast PAGE 12A Showers possible in the afternoon Forecast Question: Do you think a Republican will win next years presidential election?

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK City Council decided Monday to take a look at a new way of budgeting as it goes into next fiscal year. Interim City Manager Julian Deleon presented a percentage-based system for each department, capping their budgets at a percentage of total revenue. I believe it gives the department heads more ownership of their budget, Councilman Terry Heston said. The new system would allocate each major department a percentage of estimated city revenue, basing the amount each could spend on income, not on potential need. It will remove the idea of use it or lose itfrom budgeting, Deleon pointed out. Under the new system, the general fund would get 20 percent of estimated revenue, the police department 32 percent, the fire department 18 percent, the streets department 13 percent and 17 percent of years estimated revenue would go to parks and recreation. Once everyone understands it, I think the department heads will like it, Mayor Sharon Schuler said. If they actually knew what part of the budget they were going to get it, they could budget it instead of just satisfying someone on the budget. City employees and other council members pointed out that some of the percentages did not include service for debt or reserve for contingency. Out of the 100 percent, you did not allocate for debt, Councilman Terry Heston noted. Nor contingency or a rainy day fund. Finance Director Renee Green noted that the plan had some merit, but was not tested. Im all for trying something different. This is just an idea right now, Green said. We are going to look at it and ballpark it and say Hey this is not going to work or hey this is going to work.so lets try it. Avon Park firefighter Warren West reminded council that although the idea had merit, it was not a complete plan. As we were looking through his pie chart, he (Deleon) had budgeted for police department as 31.6 percent and rounded up to 32 percent. But when he came to the fire department he rounded down to 18 percent. That is a $60,000 cut in our department. We understand that this is a work in progress, but we are watching, West said. I should have reviewed this closer, Deleon said. We are not opposed to this pie chart, and he is definitely thinking outside the box, but we need some input, West said. We will be watching, West repeated.

The flying this past weekend was for the pilots, not the spectators. But that doesnt mean there is nothing to see. Planes land and take off Saturday they were lifting off the ground two at a time perform fly-bys and touch-and-go landings. Before flying, the planes are lined up on the tarmac and visitors are allowed to examine them up close. The planes are all vintage war planes, with the vast majority being T-6 trainers, the type of plane used to train pilots not only in WW II, but Korea as well. South Africa was using T-6s into the 1990s, said Karen Stonich, who helped organize the event and whose husband, Stoney, is a pilot. The T-6s trained more pilots than any other trainer, she said. This is our passion, she added with a wide smile. Each plane is privately owned. Continued from page 1A News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY People turned out over the week-end to watch pilots practice for the Lakeland Sun N Fun air show at Sebring Airport. War planes make stop in Sebring use money from its general fund. FEMAmoney may only be used for projects that provide for safety in an emergency. CBDG have to be used for improvements to the community. The council is considering hardening town hall, a building that was never built to hurricane standards and is aging. The roof alone is about 18 years old. Because town hall is designated the disaster center, it is imperative its structure is sound. The town would like not only a new, upgraded roof, but impact resistant windows, frames and doors and an emergency generator. Emergency generators for the towns lift stations and waste water treatment plant are also needed. These are all eligible projects. What the town has to do know is assess the costs involved, which will require an engineering study. The grant would provide $400,000 to $450,000 for hard construction, and $150,000 for the cost of studies and permits. Town Council member Ray Royce had concerns. I just dont want to move forward if the odds are against getting a grant, he said, Alday replied that everything on the proposed projects list was eligible, and the town met other requirements like the percentage of residents on moderate incomes and the fact that some of the money would be spent hardening waster water treatment plants. Its a strong application, Alday said. Continued from page 1A nity to any member of this council who wants to speak to come and be on and directly address me directly.

N ot even the First Amendment t o the Constitution, w ith its protection o f flag burning and c urse words, has c aused such pass ionate debate as the S econd Amendment t o the Constitution a nd its protection of g un ownership.Make no mistake, the N ews-Sun fully supports an A merican citizens right to k eep and bear arms. Guns have a legitimate p lace in American society, i ncluding in situations of s elf-defense. Hunting on a c risp early morning, and e njoying a venison steak that night are two of lifes pleasures. We do, however, have reservations over some of the new gun legislation currently being debated in Tallahassee. Senate Bill 432 and House Bill 155 in particular dismay us. If passed, these bills would prohibit any doctor, or other medical professional, from asking patients if they own a gun, or live in a house with a gun. Afine of $500 has been recommended for doctors who ask the question. In a country built on freedom of speech, it seems hypocritical at best to muzzle a physician in the course of his or her work. Do we really want to have politicians intruding into the privacy of the doctor-patient relationship? Or dictating what a doctor may or may not say in the examining room? Then there is the issue of doctor-patient confidentiality. Who would report a doctor except for a patient? All of us expect our doctors to protect the privacy of our discussions. But shouldnt doctors be able to trust their patients too? Especially in situations like this. Its not like doctors are the gun police authorized to confiscate weapons from homes where children live. In fact, the gun owners rights are firmly established, the most a doctor might do is recommend keeping a gun safe from children what is threatening about that? We understand that many people feel under siege these days, but it seems irrational to target doctors as boogie monsters the saboteurs of gun ownership and the American way.

Thats the extraordinary question the Make-AWish Foundation of Southern Florida asks courageous children in the community every day. While doctors provide the medicine, having a heartfelt wish come true mends a childs spirit, helping them feel like a carefree kid again. The foundation that Im fortunate enough to lead grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Whether a child chooses to go somewhere exotic, meets a favorite celebrity, receives a treasured gift, or gets to experience a dream occupation for the day, each wish experience is tailor-made to exceed expectations, with no cost to the family or strings attached. In Southern Florida, we grant a wish every 16 hours, 365 days a year, and have made more than 7,500 dreams come true in our 27year history. With the average cost of a wish being $5,000, and receiving no state or federal funding, Make-A-Wish relies on fundraisers, corporate sponsorships and donations from the general public to bring sunshine into the lives of local families. We also count on the time and effort contributed by volunteers. For every wish that we grant, there are at least two volunteers who played a role in making that happen. Carol Bannister of Port St. Lucie, a Make-AWish volunteer since 2008, is one of our fairy godmothers. Being a wish granter is the most rewarding experience that Ive had Just to see how excited each wish child gets and how grateful their fami ly is brings joy to my heart. Being a par t of the entire proce ss is a phenomenal feeling. Words like Carols are ones we often hea r, and many volunteers find that they end up getting mo re out of the experience than they giv e. Do you possess passion, creativity and the desire to help make a difference in th e lives of local children? We have an immediate need for volunteer wish granters in the Sebring area to work in teams of two as they help sick children identify their greatest wishes and coordinate with Foundation staff to make each wish come true. Wishes for Highlands County children like Anna Marie, who met the cast of iCarly in Los Angeles, Brittany, who was a VIPat Disney World, or shopping spree-recipient Tessa. There is a one-day Wish Granter training session in Sebring on Saturday, April 9. To become a wish granter, you must be at least 21 yea rs of age, undergo a criminal background check and com mit to one year of service (four wishes a year). If you are interested in learning more about the all important role of wish granter, please contact Ren ee Shore at (888) 773-9474, ext. 303 or rshore@sflawish.org. For more information about the work that we do, to make a donation, or refe r a child that may be eligible to receive a wish, contact th e foundation by phone (the number is in the previous paragraph) or connect with us online at www.sfla.wish.org, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Norman Wedderburn is the President & CEO of the Make-AWish Foundation of Southern Florida. Making a difference, one child at a time Guest Column Norman Wedderburn Energy industries must come together E ditor: We grew up in the city of P ittsburgh during the second World W ar. The steel mills roared 24/7. S ulfur smells permeated the entire c ity. Smoke and soot rained heavy t hroughout. Soot as large as pumpk in seeds fell on us and you had to p lace newspaper under all open w indows to catch some of the f lakes. So, when we heard about nuclear p ower, we were thrilled and so c heap that it would be almost free. W hen the first plant opened in P ennsylvania, we packed up the c hildren and drove out to see it for o urselves. How lovely it looked in t he clear sunshine, quiet and odorl ess too. But this dream has turned into a n ightmare. The plants in Japan h ave proven that to us. Chernobyl, we said, was done on t he cheap with Russian technology. T hree mile was a fluke? But J apanese people are anything but s loppy. They are precise in all t hings. They are sticklers for doing t hings in the proper way. They too f ailed to understand all that can go w rong when designing. This technology is too dangero us. Radiation is now in the milk and t he spinach and the seaweed that t hey eat and the fish are too cont aminated. The plants will need to b e buried as in Chernobyl. We have been given the sun. We h ave been given the wind. We have b een given brains to understand h ow to use these things. The m oney that the government was g oing to spend on nuclear power s hould be put to upgrading the power grid system that has not been upgraded since the 1940s. We lose almost 30 percent of what we generate in transmission. We need a real push in insulation of all our homes and buildings. We need to turn out some of the lights that we keep burning all night in our cities. Start with the Capitol building first. We do not need atmosphere lighting anymore. We should ask the power company here in Florida to use some of the money it has collected to help the citizens here to insulate and not to build another nuclear plant. I know that it is hard to accept the fact that we really are our brothers keeper and we are all on this planet together. All the money in the world will not help us in the long run. The energy industries must all come to believe what all the religions have tried so hard to tell us. We are our brothers keepers. Their children will inherit a planet that will be uninhabitable unless we do something and fast. Irene Hasapes SebringEditorial was right on targetEditor: Your editorial of March 20, 2011 re. Highlands County commission and the Town Council of Lake Placid, held at the Lake Placid High School, is exactly what has happened. The commissioners have honored the gifting of the Placid Utility to the Town of Lake Placid. I am deeply concerned with the quality of our water and sewer as the Town of Lake Placid has proven that they do not maintain what they have. The Oak Hill Cemetery has become a nightmare of neglect, volunteers are now in the process of a major cleanup. With the passage of the towns Comprehensive Plan, annexation will result in higher property taxes. Millage rate for the county is 15.2757, the town of Lake Placid is 19.0857, no one has really touched on this point. The Placid Utility operates in the black. This is a gift to the Town of Lake Placid. Annexation will benefit the few that are politically connected. The citizens will not be well served. New jobs will not be created for them as malignant nepotism raises its ugly head. The Dog and Pony show was scripted and rehearsed. It was insulting to the many tax payers in attendance. American greed is flourishing and I see a large new building on the drawing board called the New Town Hall of Lake Placid. I thank you for your candid, on target editorial. Grace D. Thrasher Lake PlacidAmerica needs to regain controlEditor: Ronald Reagan Legacy: The American working class wishes to thank you for an illegal work force that numbers in the millions. That illegal work force has now put the American Dream out of reach of millions of Americans. It has also destroyed the lives of millions home and property owners, putting our nations middle class out of their homes and to foreclosures brought about by the loss of jobs to an illegal work force. This disruption of our infrastructure due to the illegal work force has created a greater the past American Civil War. The American working class wishes to thank you for the possible 600 million new workers to compete in the work place. I am sure it will have a huge impact on the economy, the wage scale and all social programs for many years to come. Why the assumed figure of 600 million? The first 3 million you granted amnesty to plus the 26 family members that the government figures will be eligible to follow. This plus the 20 million plus that were enticed to enter illegally because of the first amnesty. Twenty-three million plus 26 million equals 598 million people. Going forward, we are now rea ping the benefits of Reagan and the two political parties who put our immigration system into collapse and destroyed Americas entire economic system. In the next election cycle, put a ll of the incumbent office holders in the unemployment line. For the love of all working clas s, who have lost their jobs, homes and the American Dream, send all illegals home, along with all gues t workers who have overstayed the ir visas. All immigration for the foresee able future should be canceled so that the American government can get control of a runaway problem The government should fine heavy every company, both large and small, that is using an illegal work force. This illegal problem has brought democracy to its knees. It has done more to destroy America than anything in past his tory. The problem is not being addressed by government, but when it does, it will make our firs t Civil War look like a small blip, i n American history. The American immigration system will not work without a quota system that can be verified. Ronald Reagans own words, Trust, but verify. He should hav e followed his own words and applied this to the illegal invasion from Mexico and never signed the amnesty for the first three million illegals. Rewarding criminals is never th e right thing to do for any government. To encourage crime is a crime. Billie E.

Page 6ANews-SunWednesday, March 30, 2011www.newssun.com B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Town c ouncil heard bad news r ecently, when two trees r emoved from Devane Park t urned out to have their roots t ightly wound around a major w ater main that crosses under t he park. The pipe is cast iron and d escribed by Utility Director G ary Freeman as an old, old p ipe. The concern is that grindi ng out the tree stumps could d amage the pipe, or that the p ipe could fail after the park i s renovated. Id hate to have the park finished and then have to dig it up to fix (the pipe), council member Steve Bastardi said. Fellow councilman Ray Royce agreed. If ever there was a time to put in a new pipe, now is the time, he said. Utility Director Gary Freeman said the length of 6inch PVC needed would run about $500, and the two valves needed would cost about $600 apiece. By using in-house labor the pipe could be laid for less than the $5,000 limit on non-bid projects. The council voted to lay the new pipe. It is not yet known if this would delay the park renovation, which is otherwise running on schedule. In other action, the town council decided to put off voting on new cemetery charges at their second hearing because some details were still not clearly stated. The council did pass on first reading Ordinance 11633, which sets out the creation of an civilian advisory utility board. This is part of the towns plan to become a regional water utility. Old pipe rooted in Devane Park a re in good hands if somet hing happens to them, P igman said. Pigmans heroic spirit and a ltruism will be missed by t he doctors, nurses and p atients at Florida Hospital. M any gathered at the send off i ncluding the president of the m edical staff, Dr. Miguel B eltre, who made it known j ust how loved Pigman is by e veryone he touches. My patients say to me Hey, you know that guy P igman? He is good, Beltre s aid with a laugh. Among others with kind w ords to say was Director of N urses Deb Vaughn. It is a day of celebration a nd sorrow. You will be g reatly, greatly missed. Come b ack to us safely and God s peed, said Vaughn. Pigmans wife of 14 years, Darlene, was also present at the send-off and received much love and support from the medical staff. What are you going to do? asked a colleague of Pigman. Mrs. Pigman smiled and responded, Well my initial plan was to join Golds Gym. They have a really nice pool. I was planning to swim and swim and swim that way Id be tired at night and not restless. Thats what Im worried about the most, the nights, she said. The hospital staff offered Mrs. Pigman all the support she might need to make it until her husband returns. We will have one huge Christmas and welcome back party when you return, said CEO Tim Cook. Pigman is scheduled to deploy on April 20 and will return mid-December.

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

By JOJI SAKURAI Associated PressTOKYO If Japan has a f ield of dreams, its a wellg roomed patch of grass and d irt called Koshien. Twice a year, high school b aseball teams compete at the f ield outside Kobe in nationa lly televised tournaments t hat rivet the country. Last week, at the start of t he spring tournament, a teen s tood on a podium in front of h ome plate and made a s peech watched by millions, w ith a dignity and conviction s ome Japanese find lacking i n their leaders as the nation c onfronts its earthquake and t sunami calamity. We were born 16 years a go, in the year of the great K obe earthquake, said S hinsuke Noyama, a team capt ain chosen to represent playe rs at the opening ceremony, h is face grim and chest proud. Today, in the great east Japan e arthquake, many precious l ives have been lost, and our s ouls are filled with sorrow. Baseball, long popular in Japan, rallied the country after World War II, providing welcome distraction while serving as a symbol of the cooperation, hard work, and self-sacrifice needed to rebuild the devastated land. It could be expected to play a similar role in the latest calamity, but an ugly squabble over whether to postpone opening day has smeared the image of the professional game. Not only that, Japans tradition-steeped national sport, sumo, is in disgrace over a match-fixing scandal, its spring tournament canceled in an unprecedented act of contrition. Now the nation is turning elsewhere for a glimmer of hope: fresh-faced adolescents who play their hearts out on the baseball field with a seriousness and integrity sometimes missing from their pro heroes. Hours after Noyama spoke, his team crashed out in the first round. But his speech, made against a backdrop of teams lined up like squadrons on the diamond, was played over and over on national TV, even into the morning of the next day. It was much more beautiful than some mediocre politicians speech, this 16year-old youngster performing so magnificently, with that booming voice, said Akira Kawaii, a childrens story writer walking toward Tokyos Shimbashi train station. Pro ball is all about money, high school baseball is about passion. To put Japans love of high school baseball in perspective, it generates the same kind of excitement as March Madness, the ongoing college basketball championships in the United States. Its a reaffirmation of values and identity, an occasion for national bonding, and an expression of nostalgia for the purity and vigor of youth. To be sure, high school baseball is a big deal for reasons other than national identity: Big bucks are at stake with hawk-eyed scouts looking for hot prospects. Hideki Matsui, Daisuke Matsuzaka, and Ichiro Suzuki all now playing in the American professional leagues first became household names in Japan after memorable performances in high school. But in Japanese high school baseball, losers attract almost as much attention as winners, and even the nohopes garner a big chunk of the televised commentary. Fans are touched to see these youths giving their all, with the same palpable sense of purpose, even when theyre losing 11-0 in the eighth inning. The teenage players ha ve at least momentarily tak en over the unifying role that t he pros carried out after the wa r. During the opening cer emony, the Tohoku Hig h School team based in tsunami-ravaged Miyagi pr eBy DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comMondays rains washed out S outh Floridas match-up at P olk State College, a game in w hich the Panthers were s urely hoping to get a little p ayback. It was a three-game sweep i n a recent series with the V ikings that had pushed S FCCs losing streak to five g ames. That streak, which foll owed an unprecedentd 14g ame winning streak, would r each six games with last W ednesdays home loss to v isiting Hillsborough before t he Panthers broke through w ith Fridays 2-1 win in T ampa, behind the outstandi ng pitching of Andres Pops Lopez. Things look like they m ight fall off track again this p ast Saturday, however, as t he Panthers dug themselves a n early hole before winning t he rubber game of the threeg ame series with the Hawks, 5 -4 in 10 innings. Adam Quiles got the start S aturday, but control probl ems, along with some spotty d efense allowed H illsborough to go up early a nd bring southpaw Richard W hiteleather in from the b ullpen in the third inning. The elusive strike zone would continue, however, bringing Colby Fairfax on in the fourth with another run coming in. But Farifax settled in, throwing scoreless inning after scoreless inning the rest of the way, while his offense started the comeback. (Fairfax) was as tough as I have seen him in a while, head coach Rick Hitt said. Keeping the Hawks off the board was key and South Florida eventually caught all the way up, tying it and sendSPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, March 30, 2011 NASCAR This WeekPage 4 B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE SFCC catcher Brett Clements protects home plate and prevents Hillsboroughs Derrick Hudgins from scoring in Saturdays 6-5, extra-inning win over the visiting Hawks.

It stocked the reservoir with 85,000 juvenile bass on March 25. In December 2010, the FWC also stocked Medard with 300,000 bluegills. This weeks bass-stocking is scheduled to be followed by the stocking of approximately 74,000 redear sunfish (shellcracker), later this spring. All stocked fish were spawned at the FWCs Largemouth Bass Research Center in Webster. Currently closed to fishing, Medard Reservoir will reopen when the lake naturally refills to its 770acre capacity. Apopular freshwaterfishing destination for local anglers, the lake was drained in November 2009 to refurbish the water-control structure on its southwest end. Construction was com pleted on that structure in spring 2010, and the la ke began to refill. Other improvemen ts include the placing of more than 2,000 tons of concrete rubble from t he old water-control structu re into long furrows made b y draglines when the ar ea was an active phospha te mine. Once the lake complet ely refills, these rubb le beds should attract signi ficant numbers of nati ve sport fish.

f ecture marched onto the f ield carrying the school bann er to a wave of emotional a pplause. The tournament shows y ou can make sports speak to t he needs even of a tragic m oment, said William Kelly, a Japan scholar at Yale U niversity. And professional b aseball shows how you can a lso lose that opportunity. The discord that has r ocked Japans two profess ional leagues at a time the c ountry needs unity has s hocked the country. The more powerful Central L eague balked at postponing i ts season out of respect for d isaster victims, and its Y omiuri Giants Japans m ost popular team insiste d it would hold electricityg uzzling night games at a t ime many families are eating d inner by candlelight because o f rolling blackouts. Fans were outraged. Players hinted at a possible b oycott. And the government press ured the Central League to r econsider. The Giants, widely viewed a s holding disproportional c lout in baseball decisionm aking, were singled out for a ccusations of greed and h eavy-handedness. Are these the circums tances where we should be d oing this? fumed Senichi H oshino, the charismatic form er manager of the Hanshin T igers, who play at Koshien a nd are the chief rival of the T okyo-based Giants. Early last week, the C entral League agreed to p ostpone the seasons start to M arch 29, and the Giants s aid they would play more d ay games and conserve e nergy during night games. On Thursday, the league c aved in completely, postponi ng its season to April 12 in l ine with the Pacific League. But the damage has been d one. These are very u nseemly debates, said Y ales Kelly. Baseball has s truck out. In contrast, the high school p layers have struck a strong c hord. The tournament coincides w ith another important ritual o f youth: school graduation, w hich in Japan comes in e arly spring. TVviewers saw images of b aseball heroics on the tourn aments opening day set a gainst scenes of junior high s tudents bowing deeply as t hey received diplomas in K esennuma a pulverized t own in Miyagi prefecture t hen breaking down in tears a nd hugging each other. Making the effort, selfs acrifice, taking care of the n ext guy, all thats wrapped u p into one package, and its s ymbolized by high school b aseball, said Robert W hiting, author of You G otta have Wa, a book on t he culture clashes faced by Americans playing for Japanese teams. It has this purity toward life and sports that professional baseball with its emphasis on making money doesnt. Japans approach to baseball differs vastly from the more individualistic U.S. Its about the collective good and honing the spirit in a way akin to a martial art. Whiting likes to point out that if youre hit in the face by a ball in school practice, its forbidden to say it hurts. It is, however, permissible to say it itches. In a game at the tournament last week, catcher Takahiro Suzuki lost two front teeth when a wild throw hit him in the face. He left the field for treatment, then came back minutes later to guide his pitcher to the last two outs. The next inning, his lips swollen and the gap in his mouth red with blood, he hit a double that scored the game-winning run. That spirit may be useful in times of national catastrophe. Baseball in Japan has some values that it tries to associate with itself, said Kelly, that turn out at this moment to be the values that people want. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, March 30, 2011Page 3B SUPPORTYOUR 385-3497HIGHLANDS COUNTYS OLDEST ESTABLISHED HEARING AID OFFICE130 S.

Pacing the offense were B randon Kirby with three h its in five at-bats, David S amperi, with both of his g oing for doubles, and Sam M organ having a 2-for-4 d ay. Both games this weekend w ere hard-fought, Hitt said. That now makes six oner un games played in our last s even. Which could play well d own the stretch, being batt le tested in tight contests, s uch as Fridays win that s aw Lopez get all but two o uts of the game, 10 via the s trikeout. Tied 1-1 into the fnal frame, Kyle Jackson popped a solo-shot out of the yard to provide for the final margin before Lopez and the Panther bullpen ended it in the bottom of the frame. Were looking to play better and continue our modest run, Hitt said. South Florida will look to do that, weather permitting, with St. Petersburg coming to town both today and Saturday for a two-game tilt. Currently, Polk State leads the Suncoast Conference standings with a perfect 8-0 record, with three teams bunched up behind vying for second. State College of Florida holds second, at the moment, with a 4-5 record, one game ahead of SFCCs 3-6 mark, which itself is a half-game up on Hillsborough. St. Petersburg, while playing their season and conference schedule, is spending the year on probation due to violations.

Box 1538, Gastonia, NC 28053 or send an e-mail to mdutton@gastongazette.com In the past four races, Dale Earnhardt Jr. has an eighth, a 10th, an 11th and a 12th. Hes not winning, or coming that close, but hes considerably more consistent. Does an incredible, breathtaking nish trump the uneventful spectacle that preceded it? In the memory of most yes. Five races, ve different winners. Five straight championships by Jimmie Johnson undermines the level of competition. The start of the season doesnt. Five weeks after the Daytona 500, Trevor Bayne has crashed to earth. Hes probably got money in his pocket, though. Mainly, it was inevitable. Attendance gures are impossible to decipher, simply because its obvious that all are exaggerated. Compared with one season to others is predicated on the fact that the gures were equally exaggerated over time, which is, of course, ridiculous. Sufce it to say, though, that Auto Club Speedways attendance was a step in the right direction. The currently fashionable talking point regarding Auto Club Speedway is that it is a venue that is helped, not hurt, by the loss of a Sprint Cup date. How convenient. Slumping Denny Hamlin is traditionally strong at the next two tracks, Martinsville and Texas. If he comes out of those races struggling, hes got real problems. If he wins them both, au contraire. Either Hamlin or Jimmie Johnson has won the past nine races at Martinsville Speedway. Everything about Martinsville is unique, from the layout to the atmosphere to the hot dogs to the fans. Whos hot: So far, Carl Edwards is never bad, always good and quite often superlative. ... Kevin Harvick is putting to rest rumors of Richard Childress Racings demise. Whos not: So far, Denny Hamlin has been unable to ful ll his contender obligations. ... Greg Bif e remains mired in 20th place in points. Edwards V E R S U SHarvick has been adamant about what other drivers just gloss over: Johnson must be stopped, and Harvick wants to be the guy who does it. His daring pass at Auto Club Speedway was a step in the right direction. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: One great advantage Johnson has is that he is relatively unconcerned at this stage. Hes the guy with five straight titles.KEVIN HARVICK VS. JIMMIE JOHNSONBy Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekJimmie Johnson has won more Sprint Cup races (five) than anyone else at Auto Club Speedway, which happens to be the track closest to his El Cajon, Calif., home. This time he had to settle for second to Kevin Harvick. Theres the matter of five straight championships, too, of course. Johnson is now fifth in the Cup standings, though still awaiting his first victory. The perennial champions season to date has been as smooth as a matinee idol. I think were in good shape, said Johnson. Were not where we want to be. I think we still have a lot of room for improvement A lot of room to grow. Come to think of it, Johnson says that every year at this point. Big to-do about nothing Spewing forth electronically from Fontana were bulletins to the effect that Carl Edwards still owes Kyle Busch one. Its true. Edwards said he still owed him one, but the context was no different than what a losing manager might say after the seventh game of the World Series. What Edwards actually said was: All this talk is talk, but the reality is that I didnt wreck (Busch) at Bristol. If I could have gotten to him with one or two laps to go, I might have moved him out of the way, but Im not going to intentionally go try to ruin his day or anything. Its not like that. I just feel like the least he can give me is one little spot at the end of a race. The heat of battle often changes things, but nothing Edwards said was particularly objectionable or even controversial. Nor were Buschs retorts. As a practical matter It was the fictitious Harry Hogge (Days of Thunder) who most notably said rubbin is racin. The generally accepted rule of thumb is that nudging a driver on a short track is acceptable but knocking him out of the way isnt. A rub is an act of great skill. A wreck is an act of great destruction. Its a bit more difficult to apply, by the way, to an intermediate, high-speed track such as Auto Club Speedway, where speeds and implications are higher. Smaller openings NASCAR officials announced the restrictor-plate openings for the April 17 Cup race at Talladega will be 7/8ths of an inch, down 1/64th from the plates used in the Daytona 500 and 4/64ths less than Talladegas two 2010 races. The change should reduce speeds. JhWthtt Johnsons season progressing nicely, thanks By Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekPaul Menard arrived at Auto Club Speedway in a new role. He was suddenly the sensation of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Even after settling for 16th place at the Fontana, Calif., track, Menard remained seventh in the points standings, 23 points behind leader Carl Edwards and three ahead of Juan Pablo Montoya, the Auto Club 400 pole winner. Its been a steady uphill climb for the 30-year-old Menard, who is from Eau Claire, Wis. He landed a ride at Richard Childress Racing this year, and so far, it has made quite a difference. Weve run strong on four totally different types of race tracks (entering Fontana), which, for a startup team, is a cool thing. Prior to teammate Kevin Harvicks victory, Menard had been a bright spot at a team otherwise struggling. Menards three teammates all improved their points positions, with Harvick moving up to ninth, Clint Bowyer to 17th and Jeff Burton to 25th. Everybody is just racing so hard, youre going to have wrecks, said Menard. The way the points are (now), its tough to bounce back (and) a bad run really hurts you more so than the past. Referring to his teammates, he added, Theyve got the speed; (and) theyve got the talent on the race teams to come back. I dont foresee them being down there for very long. Menards best career finish was a second place at Talladega Superspeedway on Oct. 5, 2008. His fifth-place finish in Bristols Jeff Byrd 500 on May 20 was his second top-10 showing of the season. He has finished no worse than 17th in the seasons five races to date. In 152 career Cup starts, Menard has won a pole and collected three top-five finishes. He won a race in what was then the Busch Series at The Milwaukee Mile on June 24, 2006. This is Menards fifth full Cup season. In 2010, he finished a career-best 23rd in the Cup standings while competing at Richard Petty Motorsports.Menard Staying Up In The RanksRCR driver a consistent force among top 10 this seasonJohn Clark/NASCAR This WeekIn his fifth full season of Cup racing, Paul Menard has battled competitors and five different tracks while staying among the points leaders. PAUL MENARD SPRINT CUP SERIESNo. 27 SERTA/MENARDS CHEVROLETHeaven on Wheels aheadOn the night before Martinsville Speedways Sprint Cup race, the Rives Theatre at 215 E. Church St., Martinsville, is hosting a presentation of Heaven on Wheels, a musical comedy on the history of NASCAR. The evening begins with music from NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton, who wrote a song titled Martinsville. It all begins at 8 p.m., April 2, and tickets are only $8. Harvick Johnson No. 43 and Panch Slighted?This Week welcomes letters to the editor, but please be aware that we have room for only a few each week. Well do our best to select the best, but individual replies are impossible due to the bulk of mail received. Please do not send stamped and self-addressed envelopes with your letters, which should be addressed to: NASCAR This Week, The Gaston Gazette, P.O. Box 1538, Gastonia, N.C. 28053. Dear NASCAR This Week, Since Richard Petty was the beginning of NASCAR, I was wondering if his number, 43, had anything to do with NASCAR only starting 43 cars? Is this just a coincidence or is there some significance behind it? Ronald Denk Clyde, Kan. Its just a coincidence. The fields originally grew to 43 in the 1990s because of the advent of an ex-champions provisional. At the time, the field consisted of 42, plus an ex-champion if he did not otherwise qualify. Eventually the standard size of the field was extended permanently to 43. Dear NASCAR This Week, I would like to say that I am very disappointed with NASCAR. The 2011 Daytona 500 marked the 50th race since Marvin Panch won the race in 1961 driving a borrowed, year-old Pontiac and (averaging) just under 150 mph for 500 miles. I watched everything I could during (Speedweeks), and no one even mentioned Panchs accomplishments. Come on. Mr. Panch is 84 years old, and it looks like NASCAR dropped the ball. I just think NASCAR was very insensitive. Steve Brinkley Chinquapin, N.C. Marvin Panch was honored in some quarters at Daytona, particularly in radio coverage of the events. In fairness, the oversight was probably the fault of television, not NASCAR.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Garden Club of Sebring has chosen to celebrate the centennial of the city of Sebring by refurbishing the Blue Star Memorial Marker in front of the CVS Pharmacy, U.S. 27 South. The 60-year-old marker was unreadable. The club hired Tom Stelling of Daytona Beach, known as The Tombstone Cleaner, to restore the marker to its former glory. Stelling travels the state revamping memorials. Using a grinder and chemicals he cleans the metal, then repaints the background and painstakingly retouches each letter with gold paint. The star at the top of the sign is painted a birds egg blue. The Blue Star Memorial Markers were first placed on highways across America starting in 1945 to commemorate veterans who have defended America. Garden clubs in each state were asked to ma ke this project part of their civ ic responsibility. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, March 30, 2011Page 5B E.O.

DearAbby: I have been married for 21 years, and the past eight or 10 of them havent been good. I have tried to get my wife to go camping, out to dinner or to bluegrass concerts we both love. I cant convince her to do any of these things with me. But when her sister calls wanting her to go somewhere, shes gone and stays out all day. About two years ago I started going out alone to clubs that feature bluegrass music on Fridays and Saturdays. I met a wonderful lady at one of them and we have gotten close. I have told her I love her. We have a lot in common, and she cares for me, too. I have not been unfaithful to my wife (yet), but I dont know how much more I can handle. I am lonely and miserable. Abby, I dont know what to do. Please advise before I do something stupid. Im an avid reader of your column and I trust your advice. Tempted Down South Dear Tempted: Marriage is like a garden. If it isnt tended and fertilized occasionally, it withers. It appears you and your wife stopped communicating not long after your 10th anniversary. Sneaking around is not the answer to your problem. Its unfair to your wife and to the woman you say you love. So man up and offer your wife the option of intensive marriage counseling if you want to save your marriage and your assets, that is. But do not pursue the extramarital relationship until and unless you are free to do so. DearAbby: I have been married to a wonderful guy for four years, and Im fortunate to have nice and caring in-laws. My only issue with them is the personal questions they ask like how much money people make. Abby, they know exactly how much their children make, as well as the amount of their son-in-laws salary. Once Im out of graduate school and settled into my career, I know they will ask me. I feel my finances are my personal business and no one elses especially if my husband and I are living comfortably. How do I handle the situation when my inlaws ask me about my income? I dont want to be rude, but I think its intrusive and too personal. Not Quoting Figur es DearNot Quoting: Start now and tell your husband if you havent already ho w you feel about questions about how much people earn. That way hell be less inclined to spill when his parents start pumping him for the information. When they ask you, say that you are not comfortable with th at question because you feel i t is too personal. Smile when you say it, and remember you are not obligated to answer every question som eone asks of you. DearAbby: I have been estranged from our grandchildren for nine years. On e of them is now 18 and we would like to reach out and contact her, but have no ide a how to do it. We dont know what caused the estrangement with her parents, but we have never stopped loving our grandchildren. How do you contact someone wh o isnt in the phone book, is o f age and across the country? Bonney Jean in Hawa ii DearBonney: You have written to me for so many years, I feel like I know yo u. My heart goes out to you in this Im sorry to say no t uncommon predicament. A way to locate your granddaughter would be to do it via a Google search. I wish you luck. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
