By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING "It can be done. We are in tough times, and everyone has to adjust, but it can be done," said Clerk of Courts Bob Germaine about recent budget cuts. The past couple of years have seen a drop in both state and local county funding for the clerk of courts office, and Germaine and his crew are working harder than ever to take up the slack. Since he took office in 2009, Germaine has reduced the size of his staff from 87 to 75 personnel, and his group has worked hard to cross-train so one person can now do several different jobs. "We all wear several hats now, and it looks like it may get tougher. We are just glad to have a job in this economy," Germaine said on Friday. Clerk records more accessible, despite budget cutbacks Gray Heston Germaine Editor's Note: This is part of an ongoing series examining the variety of issues and points of view regarding the subject of defined pension plans currently in place for government workers.By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Carol Knapp is a pension plan administrator. She oversees five different pension plans including both the police and fire pension plans in Avon Park and that of the Sebring fire department. She has been doing this for 25 years. Knapp sat down with the NewsSun Monday to explain the concerns felt by public service unions. Union members have the responsibility of managing their pension plans, she said, through a board of trustees who form a five-member board. Pension boards also include an administrator, a lawyer, an investment manager, and must work with a custodial bank. The boards meet quarterly to review the pension's financial position. If changes need to be made they are agreed to among the union membership first, and then passed on to the supervising governmental authority, in her cases the city councils. Ultimately, a city is the pension sponsor. Knapp said funding for pension plans comes from four sources: Member contributions, money pr ovided by the state from the insuran ce premium tax, city contributions an d "the biggie," investment returns. "There are operating rules an d investment policies based on sta te government requirements," she said "In Florida," Knapp added, "mo st of the (pension) plans are all mo re than financially healthy.

The overall goal of the Community Education Grant program is to actively engage adults in water-related issues including conservation, protection and preservation. Funded by the district's Basin Boards, the program is intended to motivate communities to get involved in protecting their water resources through various educational activities. The Highlands Soil and Water Conservation District received a $4,676 grant to educate residents about indoor and outdoor water conservation and watershed protection. Residents will have the opportunity to exchange their old showerheads for watersaving fixtures, and the conservation district will conduct educational workshops and develop promotional press releases and radio spots. The project received funding from the District's Peace River Basin Board. This year the district approved 29 grants districtwide for a total of $120,471. This is the 14th year Community Education Grants have been available. Highlands to benefit from $4,600 grant By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Sue Donaldson is one of Cracker Trail Elementary's third grade teachers and a highlyqualified instructor. Donaldson has recently been selected from more than 1,500 teachers nationwide to attend the 2011 Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy. "Sue is a gem who will share her experiences with her colleagues during our open session next August and her newest students during the 2011-2012 school year," said CTE Principal Dr. Richard J. Demeri. Donaldson has been a third grade instructor for the past seven years. Donaldson's class of students are currently preparing for the FCATand Donaldson is confident her crew will do exceptionally well on the exam. The Teachers Academy will take place in Jersey City, N.J. at the Liberty Science Center July 17-22. Donaldson is one of 200 thirdthrough fifth-grade teachers throughout the country that was selected to be a part of the week-long, intensive development program this summer. According to the selection panel, Donaldson's qualifications, dedication to inspiring early age students, and her overall commitment to enhancing the teaching profession are the reasons she was chosen. During the program, Donaldson will learn and discover the newest methods to getting students excited about math and science concepts. The program will give the instructors insight to new experiments and ideas. The Teachers Academy curriculum will help to strengthen teachers understanding of already taught subjects. The teachers will participate in hands-on experiments that they will then be able to pass along to their classrooms. The Academy is designed to allow students to retain math and science skills throughout the high school and college levels and into their careers by engaging them at an early age. "I'm very excited. I know it will be a great learning experience and it will better me as a teacher," Donaldson said, adding that she is grateful for the opportunity and hopes to learn as much as possible during the academy.

By ANDREWTAYLOR Associated PressWASHINGTON House Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday that private talks with President Barack Obama failed to produce a deal to avoid a government shutdown and warned that the House Republicans "will not be put in a box" of accepting options they refuse to endorse. Short of an agreement to cover the rest of the budget year, Boehner said House Republicans want a stopgap bill that would keep the government running for one more week and slash another $12 billion in spending. The White House has shown no interest in that approach. Friday is the deadline to avoid a shutdown. Boehner's account of the meeting between Obama and top lawmakers of both parties, released in a statement from his office, did nothing to suggest the White House and Congress were closer to reaching a deal. Boehner again insisted the parties have not even agreed on a target for spending cuts The White House disputes that. As the meeting was taking place, White House press secretary Jay Carney had expressed confidence that a deal could still be reached this week as long all sides were reasonable. Yet some public frustration also seeped into the White House's words. "The fact is that the president is calling this meeting in part because Congress can't get its work done ," Carney said as Obama m et with Boehner, Sena te Majority Leader Harry Re id and the top House approp riators from both parties. The White House h as begun advising governme nt agencies on the proper ste ps in preparation for a shu tdown of the government. Boehner has alread y orchestrated action b y Congress to pass a pair of stopgap bills, so far cuttin g $10 billion from an estima ted $1.2 trillion budget to fund the day-to-day oper ations of governme nt through Sept. 30. Yet broa der negotiations have stall ed on legislation blendin g immediate spending cu ts with the money required to run federal agenci es through the end of September. Democrats are accusin g the GOPof pressing harm ful spending cuts an d attaching a social poli cy agenda to the must-pa ss spending bill. Boehn er counters that the Whi te House is pressing gimmick y budget cuts. While the White Hou se has been heavily involv ed in the budget discussions, it has tried to maintain a pu blic distance from the talk s, with Obama and aid es repeatedly arguing that t he spending measure is an appropriations function of Congress, not of the exec utive branch. Boehner's latest shor tterm bill includes $12 b illion in immediate spendin g cuts and enough money to operate the Pentago n through the end of September. Boehner: No budget deal after White House meeting

That's a good government made o f checks and balances. If others feel the same way, then the p rocess completes itself, and another e lection is held. If enough people do n ot think the same, the beat goes on, so t o speak, and the elected official cont inues in office. No mystery, not even personal. A lthough personal feelings, or even a nger, can start the ball rolling, the option is there for a reason. The recall is a wonderful government process that reminds everyone that the people are in charge. That elected officials serve at the pleasure of the people. Not the other way around. The recall is the trump card that can be played if elected officials do not behave as they should, or refuse to acknowledge the citizenry. In Avon Park, or in any town in the United States, it is just wrong for the elected who watch over our government to think they are above the rule of law. Arecall enforces the idea that we are a country of laws and everyone must follow those laws. It shows those elected to watch our government are being watched. They are not above us, but they are our representatives. In Avon Park, a group of individuals are giving notice that they have a list of grievances and that their elected officials are not listening. The list of posted complaints shows at least seven times where city council did not practice good government. The News-Sun, Avon Park employees and the people in Avon Park have noticed the council that it needed to change its ways; to involve the community in decisions; to communicate with the public. Aseated government can be removed without violence, and that is a fact that elected officials have to keep in mind. In Avon Park, and in the rest of the state, it is the people who have the final say, and they can say it between elections if they choose. It is arrogant to believe otherwise. A legitimate government process R ecall. It is a legitimate government process, and it s hould be exercised more. The recent democratic uprisings calling for social change that have been a rolling wave of protests across the Middle East may seem like a reflection of our distant past from 1776 or perhaps even the Civil War but look again. The U.S. had a lurch in mid-step during 1968 that continues to affect everything. The year started with a wave of optimism and promises of more basic civil rights for women and blacks that were already changing the way neighborhoods looked and corporations did business from the root level. American society was shedding the culture that said everyone had to act or dress a certain way. Hippies were in and suits were out. Pollution was just a wrinkle of a worry, gas was cheap, AIDS was 20 years away and plastic was something that just made everything easier. But things were starting to come undone and the first blow was in the spring of that year. There have been other defining moments in American history despite our relative youth among industrialized nations. But this one was a turning point that was sharp and painful and stole from us, for just a moment the idea that we could still achieve great things as a nation without having to first pull each other apart. It happened on a motel balcony when Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed 43 years ago on April 4 in Memphis, Tenn. The news fell like a thud in the pit of our hearts in a year that had started out with such promise for social change and would wind down with the death of Robert Kennedy in June and a sprawling riot between police in riot gear and protesters at the Democratic convention during a hot Chicago summer. I was just a fourth-grader in Philadelphia but I could still feel the country unraveling at the seams. We already weren't as sure of ourselves in an era of Vietnam, civil rights and women's liberation and without the charismatic leaders who had promised to guide us through we weren't at all sure what the landscape would look like when the dust settled. Many felt that there should be a tamping down of societal rights until we got our feet back under us. That should sound familiar and timely. But there was a mood in the country in 1968 that even pointless deaths or brutal beatings by police couldn't shift. It was as if we had all gotten a glimpse of what we might be and we were unwilling to go back no matter what the cost. King was in Memphis in support of black sanitation workers who were on strike and were carrying handpainted signs that read, I am a man. The term "boy" was a casual slur used by some white Americans as a way o f picking someone out of a group without having to acknowledge their humanit y, much less get to know their name. It was amazing that even as we crept up on 1970 American society still thought that using a pronou n of any kind as a means to get someone's attention wa s not only acceptable but in some instances, such as the color of someone's skin, preferable. There was even a certain amount of real danger for white people who were seen getting too famil iar with a black man or woman. However, for an America n of color there was not only danger but a long, steady, weighty oppression that trie d to infiltrate every character istic of a life and ironically it was happening in Americ a where we pride ourselves o n shaking loose of old labels to create our own destinies. King, a charismatic black preacher from the South wa s peacefully showing us a ne w promised land. There's something to be lost for everyone when anyone's humanity is shortened due to prejudice, missed opportun ities or injustice. We all lose out. Rev. King was putting ou t the call for everyone to loo k at themselves and decide what they could bring to th e table to make this country a better place. First, we were to throw off the old definitions that had held us all back, individually and as a society. To a 9-year-old girl with dreams of my own that spoke directly to my heart and opened up a wider picture for myself. When King was shot it seemed like the villains in the story might win the day and take away the chance to turn dreams o f bigger possibilities into a reality. Fortunately, we were too far down the road of social change and King's legacy rolls forward even now. Th is is what confounds and eludes terrorists. America is a great nation that continues to throw off old storylines that no longe r work so that we can discov er an even deeper, richer definition of freedom.

They are future voters, parents, teachers, business owners, employees and leaders of this community. Whether these children will achieve their full potential and develop into healthy, productive members of our community largely depends on their childhood experiences. Numerous research studies have demonstrated that safe, stable, nurturing, childhood environments are related to better health and success over a lifetime. Simply put, strong families build strong communities. We ask you to join our local efforts to strengthen and support children and families in Highlands County. As the lead not-for-profit organization for Circuit 10's Child Welfare Services, Heartland for Children recognizes Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Teri Saunders CEO Heartland for Children BartowForgive the votersEditor: With all that has occurred these past 10 years, it is bewildering the voters put the very same elected officials who created the horrendous recession back in office, plus a like governor in Florida. The only plausible reason is they did not know what they did. It is understandable that the flood of propaganda from Fox News, radio and TVinundated working class voters who were very busy just surviving their terrible plight. All they heard, saw and read was: The government and unions caused this. The media simply endorsed the conservatives' mantra. It now comes to light the media deliberately misrepresented the facts, after the elections. This brought to mind the crucifixion scene. The people who called for Christ's crucifixion believed the Pharisees who used their status to exploit the common people. The media have used this same ruse to bamboozle the working class, already plagued by unemployment and rising prices. Dare I paraphrase that plea? Forgive the voters, they knew not what they did. On the other hand, the media knew full well what they wrought. They were afraid of Fox News and corporate America. Advertising is down and there is talk that newspapers will be extinct in 10 years. What with Facebook and Kindle, who needs the newspaper? Scary! Meanwhile, Gov. Scott, who "didn't know" about corruption in a corporation he was CEO of, is suspicious of all regulations in Florida and wants to eliminate "impediments" that hamper business. Please remember: It was Big Business, Wall Street, Bankers and Corporate America that caused this Great Recession (wait a minute, are those synonyms)? Gov. Scott also wants to hand down more unfunded mandates to counties and cities, which means us taxpaying working people, if we have jobs and can avoid foreclosures. (Oh! Did I miss that debacle)? Cutting taxes for big business and corporations is OK, but not for small businesses ($50,000 to $500,000). We small entities do not deserve any tax breaks. Another item of interest is the purchase of lands for environmental purposes. The large land owners are paid handsomely for "leasing" their land, but still own it. Question: Does this release the sugar, agriculture and cattle industries from their obligation to pay for the clean up of the pollution they created? Or are we regular taxpayers stuck with that $7 billion bill, too? There is much more, but I am already over the word limit.

According to Germaine, h is budget has been cut dram atically over the past three y ears. State funding alone d ropped from $2.27 million t o $1.86 million this year. A nd the estimate is that state f unding will drop again to a bout $1.8 million next budge t season. "Budgets are tighter everyw here. We are expecting cuts f rom the state, but we are a lso anticipating cuts from t he board of commissioners a s well. We are expecting to l ose an additional $200,000 t o $300,000 this year out of t he contributions from the c ounty, even though we have t aken on more responsibilit ies, like all of the IT," G ermaine said. No employees were laid o ff in the last couple of years, G ermaine said, but there has s till been personnel cuts. "We are just not replacing f olks as they retire. I have b een lucky, and I have a great s taff that is stepping in to fill t he gaps. We all are working h arder, but it can be done," G ermaine said. Germaine also said that his s taff has helped considerably i n consolidating departments i n order to curtail furloughs o r layoffs. "The financial and a ccounting departments have b een consolidated, and e veryone there has been very u nderstanding and helpful. A nd we are striving from m ore automation and techn ology to fill some of the g aps," Germaine said. One of the clerk employees w ho left recently was I nformation Technologies D irector Tony Qualls, but G ermaine has not replaced Q ualls, just shifted Qualls' d uties to Business Services D irector Jerome K aszubowski. "We have all had to help o ut, but I am not sure what e lse we can trim," K aszubowski said. "The moves by Mr. G ermaine have been good o nes, and automation is helpi ng out, and so far we have a voided layoffs. But there is n ot a whole lot more we can t rim," Kaszubowski said. One of the technology a dvances that has increased e fficiency, according to G ermaine, has been scanning a ll the records and putting t hem on-line. "That has saved a lot of t ime researching. One r ecords search that would h ave taken close to a week c an now be done in about f ive minutes," Germaine s aid. "Additionally, these c hanges are giving the public m ore access to the documents a s well. These are really the c itizens documents, and my j ob is to protect and make t hem available. The changes i n technology are making that happen," explained Germaine. "For example, the law library has been taken over by my department and we have added a self-help center to that area. Acitizen can now come in over lunch and research not only legal stuff, but public records as well, or you can now down load your property deed from home or work, without a need to come in. And it is all free to the public," Germaine said. "Additionally, there is a lot more access to databases like Lexus-Nexus. We cannot give legal advice, but we can help those who cannot afford an attorney find the information they need for their legal issues. "The change to on-line access has also cut our budget for micro-fiche maintenance. We have records back to 1926, and soon we will have access to all of those records available online," Germaine said. Right now the on-line data base just goes back to 1982, according to the website. "We have also put the court dockets online. We no longer have to make 10 or more copies each day. That's a small amount, but in these bad times, every little bit helps," Germaine said. "A clerk's job is to keep the records safe and make them accessible to the public, I think we are doing a great job of that, despite the cutbacks." To research documents or for more information, go to the clerk's website at http://www.hcclerk.org "Oh, and if anyone has a problem with anything, they can also see me at room 305 in the government building," Germaine added.

The average annual pens ion payment, she added was b etween $16,000 and $ 17,000. It takes police offic ers and firefighters 10 years t o vest in the plan. As highr isk workers, they accrue 2-4 p ercent per year of service. By comparison, the avera ge government worker a ccrues 1.6 percent per year o f service. Knapp said that judges and e lected officials who need t o serve two terms to become v ested accrue at the highe r, first-responder, rate. She said that typically, a p ension is determined by taki ng the top five earning years f rom the last 10 years of an individual's service and averaging the amount, of which the worker receives 48 percent. Unlike most government employees in non-risk jobs who can expect a 30-year career firefighter and police officers typically do not serve as long. "In my opinion," Knapp said, "it's unreasonable to expect police and firemen to work until they are 62 or 65. A20-year career is much more common." But, she added, members willingly increased their contribution by 2 percent to pay for the 20 and out option. Knapp has many concerns about the current discussions going on in city councils and the state legislature. She is especially worried that governments may try to do away with defined pension plans altogether those where an individual can count on a specified amount every month and move to 401(k)s or defined contribution plans. If that happens, she said, one result would be the loss of the insurance premium tax dollars from the state. "I really think to a great respect cities and the state feel so out of control they are looking to save money," she said. "It frustrates me that uninformed people made decisions that set themselves up. The money has to come from somewhere, and now they want the membership to pay."

Miller in their recall efforts. "The Exploratory Committee believes that each of the council members eligible for recall at this time (Gray, Heston, and Miller) are each guilty of allegations 1 thru 7. "However, it is the general consensus of the majority questioned, that Councilman Miller should not be included in the recall process at this time," the website stated. The website also states that the response to a recall has been good. "Since the formation of the exploratory recall committee several weeks ago, committee members have been measuring the level of interest for the launch of a Recall Petition Initiative. Reasons for supporting a Recall have been varied, and support has been positive," the site states. The committee has posted their grievances for the recall and utilized the city charter, code of ordinances and policy manual to support their claims, writing: "Anumber of allegations were made, and violations documented. The Exploratory Committee has refined the list, reducing it to those items most often mentioned," the site states and then carries on to list those grievances. 1. Neglect of Duty, Incompetence, council persons Gray & Heston fail to properly interpret and accurately apply the provisions of the City Charter, and the Performance Rules and Regulations (PRR's). This negatively affects their ability to effectively participate in policy making decisions or to cast educated and informed votes on issues that come before the Avon Park City Council. 2. Misfeasance, by authorizing a $12,500.00 dollar pay raise for a department head without a required majority vote of City Council in an open meeting a direct violation of Codes of Ordinance Article 4, Division 1, Sec. 2-242 3. Neglect of Duty, after gaining first hand knowledge of a current employees'fear of retaliation from other city employees, council persons Gray & Heston refused/failed to initiate an investigation into the allegations see: City Charter: Article IV, Section 24 p2, Investigations. 4. Incompetence, Neglect of Duty, Malfeasance, by failing to follow the City Charter requirement of maintaining a Civil Service Board, even after being advised that not having one was a violation of the Charter see: City Charter, Subpart B Related Laws, Article 1, Section 4. 5. Neglect of Duty, after being informed that a department head was in violation of the PRR (City Ordinance/Law) council persons Gray & Heston neglected to direct the City Manager to require said department head to comply with the PRR, allowing the continued violation of the residency requirement: living beyond 5 miles of the City of Avon Park a direct violation of Codes of Ordinance Article 4, Division 1, Sec. 2-244 6. Incompetence, Neglect of Duty, Malfeasance, failu re to follow the City Chart er mandate of requiring the su ccession of the City Clerk to Interim City Manager se e: Article 3, Sec.10, (4c),( 3) and Codes of Ordinance Article 4, Division 1, Sec. 2188 7.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK In a roller coaster season that has seen a 14-game winning streak followed by a six game losing skid, the South Florida Panthers are keeping things additionally interesting with their spate of one-run games. Saturday was another example of that as the team eked one out over the visiting Titans of St. Petersburg, 4-3, behind another strong start from Andres "Pops" Lopez. The right-hander went six innings and limited the potent St. Pete attack, before giving way to Kevin Welborn who fired three innings of stellar relief. The offense, meanwhile, was paced by Brandon Kirby's three hits, including a double, and a two-run homer listed among the two hits for Brad Harrison. This makes three wins in the last four games for the Panthers as they moved their Suncoast Conference record to 3-7. "It's amazing how many one-run games we have played," head coach Rick Hitt said. "Eight of our last ten have been one-run games." And despite the win, and recent winning way, he is still seeing a concern that's keeping the contests so tight. "We continue to leave a small village on base and cannot seem to get the right guy to the plate to break these games open for us," Hitt said. "We are hittin g .181 with runners in scorin g position in our last 1 0 games." In those games, Sou th Florida has won three by o ne run, lost five by one and o ne by two, which again exemp lifies Hitt's concern. "That's 109 runners left o n base in the last 10 games," he said. "That's a huge stat co nsidering the results." But while the offense h as struggled to score ju st enough for the recent su ccesses, it is the pitching th at is keeping things encoura ging. "The positive is that o ur staff has been keeping us around, even without our to p three arms," Hitt said. "Th ey are keeping us in every gam e.

News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE A ndres "Pops" Lopez turned in another top-notch performance, holding down St. Petersburg Saturday in SFCCs 4-3 win. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAnd to think, the Sebring baseball squad was looking up at an early deficit in Monday night's match-up at DeSoto. But the Blue Streaks more than came back, they then romped their way to a 13-3, 5-inning, mercy rule win in Arcadia behind the pitching of Nate Green and a number of booming bats. Chris Steele got the Bulldogs on the board with an RBI single in the bottom of the first for a 1-0 lead and it would be until the third that the lead would hold. But in that top half of the third, Sebring plated three to take their first lead. With one out, Gunnar Westergom singled and stole second before Seth Abe ln drew a base on balls. Adouble steal soon ensu ed to put runners at second an d third when Matt Randall 's sacrifice fly broug ht Westergom in with the tyin g run. Evan Lewis th en sized up a fastball an d unloaded on it, home ring to left to put t he Streaks up 3-1. But DeSoto wou ld respond in its'half of the frame with Stee le again doing the damage wi th a two-run double to ev en things up at three apiece. But any thoughts of th is one remaining tight wou ld soon dissipate as the Strea ks put up a touchdown in t he fourth to take the lead f or good.

With two out, Westergom g ot plunked to load the b ases and Abeln, Randall a nd Lewis each worked the c ount for walks to bring r uns in. With the bases still l oaded, Jesse Baker lashed a l ine-drive double to left to s core two more before H offner started what he fini shed with a double to bring i n the final runs of the i nning. Now with the cushion of a 1 0-3 lead, Greene cruised t hrough the bottom of the f ourth, setting the Bulldogs d own in order before his o ffense tacked on three m ore in the fifth. Westergom walked, a dvanced to second on an A beln ground out and s cored when Randall's fly to r ight was mishandled for an e rror. Baker's single moved R andall to third and an error o ff of Hoffner's bat brought h im in and Greene finished o ff the scoring with an RBI s ingle up the middle. Greene then finished off D eSoto by going one, two, three in the bottom of the fifth, striking out the final batter, to end the game early on the ten-run rule. Randall and Baker paced the offense with three RBI each with Lewis adding two on his homer. Greene struck out six and walked just one in his five innings of mound work. The win moves the Streaks record to 16-3 on the season, 6-2 in district play, and was the team's sixth in a row since their mid-season, three-game losing streak.

Box 1538, Gastonia, NC 28053 or send an e-mail to mdutton@gastongazette.com For Dale Earnhardt Jr., Martinsville Speedway was the site of the one that got away. The weeks remarkable fact: In the Camping World Truck Series, Todd Bodine has never won on a track shorter than a mile. Kevin Harvick has rendered moot the point of Richard Childress Racing getting off to a slow start. Two straight victories isnt too slow. Jimmie Johnson cried a foul of his own after his Martinsville hopes ended with a NASCAR speeding penalty. I wasnt speeding,Ž he declared. They (NASCAR) didnt like how it looked, the way I managed my timing lines. ƒ There is just no way.Ž The Goodys Fast Relief 500 was the “nest race of the season to date. It was vintage Martinsville. Martin Truex Jr. thought soft walls saved him after the throttle stuck on his Toyota. Kasey Kahnes Toyota provided some cushion, too. It was about as serious as a crash at Martinsville gets. Harvick has now won at Martinsville in Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck series. At his best track, Denny Hamlin dropped two more positions in the points, falling from 17th to 19th. He won both races last year at Texas Motor Speedway ƒ and needs another. Already this season, Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch, Kurt Busch and Tony Stewart have led the Sprint Cup standings. After six races, Jeff Burton ranks 28th in the points standings. Fortunately, he has 20 regular-season races left to muster some run at a spot in the Chase. Whos hot: Kevin Harvick has won consecutive races for the second time in his career. ... Dale Earnhardt Jr.s runner-up “ nish was his best since the 2010 Daytona 500. Whos not: At Martinsville, a 12thplace “nish was a crushing outcome for Denny Hamlin, who had won the previous three races there. ... Kasey Kahne was an innocent victim of a stuck throttle on Martin Truex Jr.s Toyota. Earnhardt Jr. V E R S U SMarcos Ambroses Ford was struggling after being caught in the outside lane and losing a number of positions. Along came Michael McDowells Toyota, which seemingly rammed Ambroses car. I was a victim,Ž said Ambrose. I dont know what McDowell was thinking. ƒ It was uncalled for and unfortunate for us.Ž NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: How it happened was surprising, but Ambrose was struggling, trying desperately to get back in line, and it appeared he had finally succeeded, until ƒŽAMBROSE VS. MCDOWELLBy Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekKimi Raikkonen, the 2007 World Driving Champion, has reached an agreement to race in several Camping World Truck Series races later this year. Raikkonen will drive a Toyota Tundra fielded by Kyle Buschs team. The 31-year old Raikkonen, a native of Espoo, Finland, has captured 18 Formula One races and is presently racing world rally cars. He is scheduled to make his NASCAR debut on May 20 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Raikkonens most recent F1 victory occurred on Aug. 30, 2009, in the Grand Prix of Belgium at Spa Francorchamps. Putting up a number „ Martinsvilles Goodys Fast Relief 500 marked the 800th Cup race for 52-yearold Mark Martin, who finished second in the Cup points standings as recently as 2009. Martin finished 10th. His one-time teammate, Carl Edwards, said: When I was around Mark, I thought, man, this guy is driving it 150 percent every time he goes to the race track, and I will draw off that. I still use him as an inspiration when Im working out or when Im practicing or talking to Bob (Osborne, Edwards crew chief). I think about that a lot.Ž Martin has won twice at Martinsville, the most recent being in 2000. Adroit plug „ Most drivers publicize their sponsors in predictable ways. Ryan Newman gave a nuanced answer to a question about the athletic requirements of being a race driver. Most sports require great athleticism to be a great performer,Ž he said. In our sport, I dont think it requires great athleticism. What it requires is the same thing the Army (i.e., his sponsor) is all about, which is the mental, and the physical and the balance of emotional strength to be successful.Ž Oddly enough „ Three prominent, experienced drivers „ Matt Kenseth, Tony Stewart and Mark Martin „ were penalized for switching lanes before crossing the start-finish line on restarts at Martinsville. A pit-road speeding penalty, which he vehemently protested, cost Jimmie Johnson a shot at a seventh Martinsville victory. In their own worlds „ Kyle Busch and Johnson both claimed they had no idea it was April Fools Day. No word on whether or not they knew that April Fools and April 1 are the same thing. Fh Kimi Raikkonen punches his NASCAR ticket By Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekMARTINSVILLE, Va. „ A wildly exciting Goodys Fast Relief 500 victory was the 16th of Kevin Harvicks career. Coming on the heels of a victory a week earlier at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., the win also marked the second time Harvick, 35, has won consecutive Sprint Cup races. The Bakersfield, Calif., native has won in all three major NASCAR touring series „ Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck „ at the .526-mile oval. No one has expressed more outspokenly a desire to unseat the winner of the past five championships, Jimmie Johnson, than Harvick, who finished third in the 2010 Chase. Here we are, six races into the season, and I feel like we can take more chances than we did last year. ƒ I feel like we can really push the limits ƒ and its good for our confidence, to say the least,Ž he said. Harvick outdueled Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the waning laps at Martinsville, winning for the first time at the track in Cup. His No. 29 Chevy, fielded by Richard Childress Racing, carries sponsorship long associated with Earnhardt Jr., and it was Harvick who succeeded Dale Earnhardt at RCR after the elder Earnhardts fatal crash in the 2001 Daytona 500. Well aware that his victory wasnt particularly popular, given that Earnhardt Jr. has gone 99 races since his most recent win, Harvick said, Yeah, I could see the people just going crazy coming off of turn two when he (Earnhardt) took the lead from Kyle (Busch), and as I was catching him, Im, like, man, Im going to be the bad guy here. But Ive got to do what Ive got to do. It was cool to see [Earnhardt] back up there in contention for a win. ƒ I want to see Dale Jr. win. It would be great for the sport, and I think today went a long ways to showing how competitive that they can be racing for wins, and thats what we need. We all need him to win. But Im not going to back down.ŽHarvick Takes Two AlreadyPast contender and RCR driver clearing his way on trackJohn Clark/NASCAR This WeekTwo wins in six races have pushed Kevin Harvick into the limelight. Harvick cleared Dale Earnhardt Jr. with four laps left for a Martinsville win. KEVIN HARVICK SPRINT CUP SERIESNo. 29 BUDWEISER CHEVROLETAn April PR FoolHomestead-Miami Speedways issuance of an April Fools Day press release caused quite a stir among the media covering the weekends races at Martinsville Speedway. According to the release, the November races at the 1.5-mile track would be run clockwise instead of counter-clockwise, meaning that it would be contested with right-hand, not left, turns. The announcement, of course, was a hoax. Ambrose McDowell Not your sons NASCAR?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, There is probably an array of reasons for the decline in both attendance and viewership for NASCAR events. Chief among them, for those of us who have been longtime fans, is the COT (Car of Tomorrow). We remember when the car you saw in a race on the weekend was similar, if not identical, to the car which was on display in your local dealers showroom. It is, remember, National Association for STOCK CAR Auto Racing, not some generic, contrived car where they look the same except for the decals. Thats called IRL. My 21-year-old son is currently working on two project cars, a 1996 Impala SS and a 1954 Ford. He and his friends do not care for NASCAR for much of the same reasons. He says that the cars produced today could not compete in NASCAR. For the most part, they bring the younger generation to NASCAR. It is my experience that there are two types out there, those who like the high-revving, bumblebee-sounding street racers and those, like my son, who are into the muscle cars. You are not going to interest either group. You might have some influence on the second if they could go to a dealer and buy a COT to drive on the street, but, as it is, there is no connection between NASCAR and that younger generation. Robert Freeman Jr. Bonnerdale, Ark. Thanks for your insight. You make some fine points.

DearAbby: I have been d ating a wonderful woman I 'll call "Shannon" for a year a nd a half. She has most t hings that I want in a partn er, and I often feel she's b etter than I deserve. We're i n our early 30s, and S hannon is saying she will s oon need some kind of idea w here we are going in the f uture. I'm having trouble with t he notion of committing to h er forever because I'm still a ttracted to other women. (I h aven't been involved with a nyone else since starting to d ate her.) More worrisome, I 'm afraid I'll meet someone I 'm more attracted to a few y ears down the road. How can I be sure that S hannon will make me happ ier than anyone else I might m eet in the future? Conflicted in Washington State DearConflicted: You say S hannon has "most" things y ou want in a partner. Yet I s ense that you're not as p hysically attracted to her as y ou think you should be. If t his woman does not appeal t o you, then face it she's n ot for you. Of course, regardless of h ow attractive one's partner i s, there are no guarantees t hat anyone male or female won't meet someone who i s different and appealing at some point in the future. But those who are mature and committed usually realize they have enough invested emotionally in their marriage and children that they can resist temptation. It's called being an adult. DearAbby: At least once a week my boss and I drive together from our office to meetings throughout town. She always insists on driving. My problem is, she drives erratically and I often feel in danger with her behind the wheel. Not only does she swerve in and out of lanes without signaling, she is often talking on her cell phone (which is not illegal in our state). I'd be happy to drive. I have a comfortable, reliable car and a safe driving history. I have offered, "I'd be glad to drive so you'll be free to give your full attention to important phone calls." None of my efforts has worked. I don't want to be rude or insulting and certainly don't want to create an awkward situation with my boss but I don't want to keep putting myself at risk with her terrible driving. I'd be grateful for some advice. Riding Shotgun in Miami DearRiding Shotgun: It's time for another more direct chat with your boss. You should not have to worry every time you get into a car with her that you might not arrive in one piece. Tell her: "When you talk on the phone while you drive, it makes me very nervous. I'm concerned about my safety as well as the safety of others when you do it. If you don't want me to drive so you can make your calls, I will meet you at our destination." DearAbby: After her second mammogram in 10 years, my mother-in-law now needs a double mastectomy. An annual mammogram would have caught it early enough to prevent its spread. Since I have trouble remembering when it has been a year since my last exam, I decided to schedule my annual exam on my birthday. Now I will always remember when it's time for my annual gift to myself preventive health care. Annual Alison in California DearAnnual Alison: That's an excellent suggestion. Associating annual medical exams with a holiday like Valentine's Day would be another. 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. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Abby shares more than 100 of her favorite recipes in two booklets: Abby's Favorite Recipes' and More Favorite Recipes by Dear Abby.'

Did you ever sit and wonder how your life would be if you had only made a different decision? One time I was queuing up an e-mail to go out at a later date. By accident I put yesterday's date in the box. Programmers can be so funny sometimes. Alittle error message window pops up and says, "I know you had to send this message yesterday, but I just can't do it till my time machine gets back from the shop." Well folks we don't have time machines and if we did would we really want to use them. Our lives are the decisions we have made. Albeit good or bad; they are the decisions that send us on our journey through life. Reminiscing is not negative but regret can take years from you. Why do we beat ourselves up over decisions we have made? We don't have to live in regret anymore. We can release the regret by forgiving ourselves of those bad mistakes and accepting them as part of our path to where we are today. Bad decisions help us to make better choices in the future. There are many reasons we made regrettable decisions in our past. The first one had to do with our impetuous and rebellious teenage years. Those years are no different than the terrible twos. We have to prove ourselves. No one could tell us anything. We didn't listen because we thought we knew it all. Our parents tried their best to keep us from making the same mistakes that they did, but we had to make our own mistakes in order to learn something from them. There is nothing like a dose of reality to send us in a different direction. We may not have a time machine to change the past but we do have a type of a crystal ball and it is in our heads. The power of that crystal ball comes from all those decisions we have made in the past and what we have learned from the good ones and the bad ones. Those choices become the filters that help us to process the decisions we have to make every day. We don't get a "do over" in real life. Or do we? We are destined to continue to make the same mistakes if we don't learn from them. One New Years Day I used my crystal ball filter system to figure out why I had trouble keeping my home clean. When I examined the system that had worked once it was easy to see the mistakes that I had made in using the Sidetracked Home Executive card file; it was a great system. In my impetuous rebellious state of mind, I had to do it my way. Doesn't that sound familiar? The first thing I figured out was that I had never established a habit. Then I noticed how hard I was on myself by trying to do everything at once in addition to piling on more and more to do. I decided to be nice to myself by only pick ing one habit at a time to practice. I even gave mysel f a grace period of 10 days; instead of beating myself u p when I would miss a day, I would jump back in withou t having to start back over. W e hate that defeated feeling o f failure. There were no excuses because I didn't have to be perfect to establish a habit; I had a whole month to do it. The rule wa s I could not skip two days in a row. Anybody could do it That first habit was shin ing my sink. When that worked I added another hab it the next month. Each new habit was setting the found ation for keeping my home clean and shiny as well as getting rid of those awful regrets. We don't have to be stuc k in our own Groundhog Da y' movie. We have a choice to use our filter system to help us make different decisions We have our brains that can think. We have the ability t o take advice instead of rebelling against it. We are a crystal ball because the choices we make today set the path for our future. Are you ready to FLYby letting go of your regrets an d forgiving yourself? Our choices have made us who we are today. When we lear n from our mistakes we can use them as a filter to keep us from making those same bad choices again.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING It can be done. We are in tough times, and everyone has to adjust, but it can be done, said Clerk of Courts Bob Germaine about recent budget cuts. The past couple of years have seen a drop in both state and local county funding for the clerk of courts office, and Germaine and his crew are working harder than ever to take up the slack. Since he took office in 2009, Germaine has reduced the size of his staff from 87 to 75 personnel, and his group has worked hard to cross-train so one person can now do several different jobs. We all wear several hats now, and it looks like it may get tougher. We are just glad to have a job in this economy, Germaine said on Friday. Clerk records more accessible, despite budget cutbacks Gray Heston Germaine Editors Note: This is part of an ongoing series examining the variety of issues and points of view regarding the subject of defined pension plans currently in place for government workers.By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Carol Knapp is a pension plan administrator. She oversees five different pension plans including both the police and fire pension plans in Avon Park and that of the Sebring fire department. She has been doing this for 25 years. Knapp sat down with the NewsSun Monday to explain the concerns felt by public service unions. Union members have the responsibility of managing their pension plans, she said, through a board of trustees who form a five-member board. Pension boards also include an administrator, a lawyer, an investment manager, and must work with a custodial bank. The boards meet quarterly to review the pensions financial position. If changes need to be made they are agreed to among the union membership first, and then passed on to the supervising governmental authority, in her cases the city councils. Ultimately, a city is the pension sponsor. Knapp said funding for pension plans comes from four sources: Member contributions, money pr ovided by the state from the insuran ce premium tax, city contributions an d the biggie, investment returns. There are operating rules an d investment policies based on sta te government requirements, she said In Florida, Knapp added, mo st of the (pension) plans are all mo re than financially healthy.

The overall goal of the Community Education Grant program is to actively engage adults in water-related issues including conservation, protection and preservation. Funded by the districts Basin Boards, the program is intended to motivate communities to get involved in protecting their water resources through various educational activities. The Highlands Soil and Water Conservation District received a $4,676 grant to educate residents about indoor and outdoor water conservation and watershed protection. Residents will have the opportunity to exchange their old showerheads for watersaving fixtures, and the conservation district will conduct educational workshops and develop promotional press releases and radio spots. The project received funding from the Districts Peace River Basin Board. This year the district approved 29 grants districtwide for a total of $120,471.

Highlands to benefit from $4,600 grant By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Sue Donaldson is one of Cracker Trail Elementarys third grade teachers and a highlyqualified instructor. Donaldson has recently been selected from more than 1,500 teachers nationwide to attend the 2011 Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy. Sue is a gem who will share her experiences with her colleagues during our open session next August and her newest students during the 2011-2012 school year, said CTE Principal Dr. Richard J. Demeri. Donaldson has been a third grade instructor for the past seven years. Donaldsons class of students are currently preparing for the FCATand Donaldson is confident her crew will do exceptionally well on the exam. The Teachers Academy will take place in Jersey City, N.J. at the Liberty Science Center July 17-22. Donaldson is one of 200 thirdthrough fifth-grade teachers throughout the country that was selected to be a part of the week-long, intensive development program this summer. According to the selection panel, Donaldsons qualifications, dedication to inspiring early age students, and her overall commitment to enhancing the teaching profession are the reasons she was chosen. During the program, Donaldson will learn and discover the newest methods to getting students excited about math and science concepts. The program will give the instructors insight to new experiments and ideas. The Teachers Academy curriculum will help to strengthen teachers understanding of already taught subjects. The teachers will participate in hands-on experiments that they will then be able to pass along to their classrooms. The Academy is designed to allow students to retain math and science skills throughout the high school and college levels and into their careers by engaging them at an early age. Im very excited. I know it will be a great learning experience and it will better me as a teacher, Donaldson said, adding that she is grateful for the opportunity and hopes to learn as much as possible during the academy.

By ANDREWTAYLOR Associated PressWASHINGTON House Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday that private talks with President Barack Obama failed to produce a deal to avoid a government shutdown and warned that the House Republicans will not be put in a box of accepting options they refuse to endorse. Short of an agreement to cover the rest of the budget year, Boehner said House Republicans want a stopgap bill that would keep the government running for one more week and slash another $12 billion in spending. The White House has shown no interest in that approach. Friday is the deadline to avoid a shutdown. Boehners account of the meeting between Obama and top lawmakers of both parties, released in a statement from his office, did nothing to suggest the White House and Congress were closer to reaching a deal. Boehner again insisted the parties have not even agreed on a target for spending cuts The White House disputes that. As the meeting was taking place, White House press secretary Jay Carney had expressed confidence that a deal could still be reached this week as long all sides were reasonable. Yet some public frustration also seeped into the White Houses words. The fact is that the president is calling this meeting in part because Congress cant get its work done , Carney said as Obama m et with Boehner, Sena te Majority Leader Harry Re id and the top House approp riators from both parties. The White House h as begun advising governme nt agencies on the proper ste ps in preparation for a shu tdown of the government. Boehner has alread y orchestrated action b y Congress to pass a pair of stopgap bills, so far cuttin g $10 billion from an estima ted $1.2 trillion budget to fund the day-to-day oper ations of governme nt through Sept. 30. Yet broa der negotiations have stall ed on legislation blendin g immediate spending cu ts with the money required to run federal agenci es through the end of September. Democrats are accusin g the GOPof pressing harm ful spending cuts an d attaching a social poli cy agenda to the must-pa ss spending bill. Boehn er counters that the Whi te House is pressing gimmick y budget cuts. While the White Hou se has been heavily involv ed in the budget discussions, it has tried to maintain a pu blic distance from the talk s, with Obama and aid es repeatedly arguing that t he spending measure is an appropriations function of Congress, not of the exec utive branch. Boehners latest shor tterm bill includes $12 b illion in immediate spendin g cuts and enough money to operate the Pentago n through the end of September. Boehner: No budget deal after White House meeting

Thats a good government made o f checks and balances. If others feel the same way, then the p rocess completes itself, and another e lection is held. If enough people do n ot think the same, the beat goes on, so t o speak, and the elected official cont inues in office. No mystery, not even personal. A lthough personal feelings, or even a nger, can start the ball rolling, the option is there for a reason. The recall is a wonderful government process that reminds everyone that the people are in charge. That elected officials serve at the pleasure of the people. Not the other way around. The recall is the trump card that can be played if elected officials do not behave as they should, or refuse to acknowledge the citizenry. In Avon Park, or in any town in the United States, it is just wrong for the elected who watch over our government to think they are above the rule of law. Arecall enforces the idea that we are a country of laws and everyone must follow those laws. It shows those elected to watch our government are being watched. They are not above us, but they are our representatives. In Avon Park, a group of individuals are giving notice that they have a list of grievances and that their elected officials are not listening. The list of posted complaints shows at least seven times where city council did not practice good government. The News-Sun, Avon Park employees and the people in Avon Park have noticed the council that it needed to change its ways; to involve the community in decisions; to communicate with the public. Aseated government can be removed without violence, and that is a fact that elected officials have to keep in mind. In Avon Park, and in the rest of the state, it is the people who have the final say, and they can say it between elections if they choose. It is arrogant to believe otherwise. A legitimate government process R ecall. It is a legitimate government process, and it s hould be exercised more. The recent democratic uprisings calling for social change that have been a rolling wave of protests across the Middle East may seem like a reflection of our distant past from 1776 or perhaps even the Civil War but look again. The U.S. had a lurch in mid-step during 1968 that continues to affect everything. The year started with a wave of optimism and promises of more basic civil rights for women and blacks that were already changing the way neighborhoods looked and corporations did business from the root level. American society was shedding the culture that said everyone had to act or dress a certain way. Hippies were in and suits were out. Pollution was just a wrinkle of a worry, gas was cheap, AIDS was 20 years away and plastic was something that just made everything easier. But things were starting to come undone and the first blow was in the spring of that year. There have been other defining moments in American history despite our relative youth among industrialized nations. But this one was a turning point that was sharp and painful and stole from us, for just a moment the idea that we could still achieve great things as a nation without having to first pull each other apart. It happened on a motel balcony when Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed 43 years ago on April 4 in Memphis, Tenn. The news fell like a thud in the pit of our hearts in a year that had started out with such promise for social change and would wind down with the death of Robert Kennedy in June and a sprawling riot between police in riot gear and protesters at the Democratic convention during a hot Chicago summer. I was just a fourth-grader in Philadelphia but I could still feel the country unraveling at the seams. We already werent as sure of ourselves in an era of Vietnam, civil rights and womens liberation and without the charismatic leaders who had promised to guide us through we werent at all sure what the landscape would look like when the dust settled. Many felt that there should be a tamping down of societal rights until we got our feet back under us. That should sound familiar and timely. But there was a mood in the country in 1968 that even pointless deaths or brutal beatings by police couldnt shift. It was as if we had all gotten a glimpse of what we might be and we were unwilling to go back no matter what the cost. King was in Memphis in support of black sanitation workers who were on strike and were carrying handpainted signs that read, I am a man. The term boy was a casual slur used by some white Americans as a way o f picking someone out of a group without having to acknowledge their humanit y, much less get to know their name. It was amazing that even as we crept up on 1970 American society still thought that using a pronou n of any kind as a means to get someones attention wa s not only acceptable but in some instances, such as the color of someones skin, preferable. There was even a certain amount of real danger for white people who were seen getting too famil iar with a black man or woman. However, for an America n of color there was not only danger but a long, steady, weighty oppression that trie d to infiltrate every character istic of a life and ironically it was happening in Americ a where we pride ourselves o n shaking loose of old labels to create our own destinies. King, a charismatic black preacher from the South wa s peacefully showing us a ne w promised land. Theres something to be lost for everyone when anyones humanity is shortened due to prejudice, missed opportun ities or injustice. We all lose out. Rev. King was putting ou t the call for everyone to loo k at themselves and decide what they could bring to th e table to make this country a better place. First, we were to throw off the old definitions that had held us all back, individually and as a society. To a 9-year-old girl with dreams of my own that spoke directly to my heart and opened up a wider picture for myself. When King was shot it seemed like the villains in the story might win the day and take away the chance to turn dreams o f bigger possibilities into a reality. Fortunately, we were too far down the road of social change and Kings legacy rolls forward even now. Th is is what confounds and eludes terrorists. America is a great nation that continues to throw off old storylines that no longe r work so that we can discov er an even deeper, richer definition of freedom.

Pinwheels are displayed i n April to draw attention to a nd encourage involvement i n making children a priorit y in our community. The P inwheels for Prevention C ampaign is part of a n ational movement that f ocuses on community a ctivities and public polic ies that prioritize healthy c hild development. Circuit 10 (Hardee, Highlands and Polk counties) is home to 164,855 children and youth, with 18,466 in Highlands County. These children are our future. They are future voters, parents, teachers, business owners, employees and leaders of this community. Whether these children will achieve their full potential and develop into healthy, productive members of our community largely depends on their childhood experiences. Numerous research studies have demonstrated that safe, stable, nurturing, childhood environments are related to better health and success over a lifetime. Simply put, strong families build strong communities. We ask you to join our local efforts to strengthen and support children and families in Highlands County. As the lead not-for-profit organization for Circuit 10s Child Welfare Services, Heartland for Children recognizes Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Teri Saunders CEO Heartland for Children BartowForgive the votersEditor: With all that has occurred these past 10 years, it is bewildering the voters put the very same elected officials who created the horrendous recession back in office, plus a like governor in Florida. The only plausible reason is they did not know what they did. It is understandable that the flood of propaganda from Fox News, radio and TVinundated working class voters who were very busy just surviving their terrible plight. All they heard, saw and read was: The government and unions caused this. The media simply endorsed the conservatives mantra. It now comes to light the media deliberately misrepresented the facts, after the elections. This brought to mind the crucifixion scene. The people who called for Christs crucifixion believed the Pharisees who used their status to exploit the common people. The media have used this same ruse to bamboozle the working class, already plagued by unemployment and rising prices. Dare I paraphrase that plea? Forgive the voters, they knew not what they did. On the other hand, the media knew full well what they wrought. They were afraid of Fox News and corporate America. Advertising is down and there is talk that newspapers will be extinct in 10 years. What with Facebook and Kindle, who needs the newspaper? Scary! Meanwhile, Gov. Scott, who didnt know about corruption in a corporation he was CEO of, is suspicious of all regulations in Florida and wants to eliminate impediments that hamper business. Please remember: It was Big Business, Wall Street, Bankers and Corporate America that caused this Great Recession (wait a minute, are those synonyms)? Gov. Scott also wants to hand down more unfunded mandates to counties and cities, which means us taxpaying working people, if we have jobs and can avoid foreclosures. (Oh! Did I miss that debacle)? Cutting taxes for big business and corporations is OK, but not for small businesses ($50,000 to $500,000). We small entities do not deserve any tax breaks. Another item of interest is the purchase of lands for environmental purposes. The large land owners are paid handsomely for leasing their land, but still own it. Question: Does this release the sugar, agriculture and cattle industries from their obligation to pay for the clean up of the pollution they created? Or are we regular taxpayers stuck with that $7 billion bill, too? There is much more, but I am already over the word limit.

According to Germaine, h is budget has been cut dram atically over the past three y ears. State funding alone d ropped from $2.27 million t o $1.86 million this year. A nd the estimate is that state f unding will drop again to a bout $1.8 million next budge t season. Budgets are tighter everyw here. We are expecting cuts f rom the state, but we are a lso anticipating cuts from t he board of commissioners a s well. We are expecting to l ose an additional $200,000 t o $300,000 this year out of t he contributions from the c ounty, even though we have t aken on more responsibilit ies, like all of the IT, G ermaine said. No employees were laid o ff in the last couple of years, G ermaine said, but there has s till been personnel cuts. We are just not replacing f olks as they retire. I have b een lucky, and I have a great s taff that is stepping in to fill t he gaps. We all are working h arder, but it can be done, G ermaine said. Germaine also said that his s taff has helped considerably i n consolidating departments i n order to curtail furloughs o r layoffs. The financial and a ccounting departments have b een consolidated, and e veryone there has been very u nderstanding and helpful. A nd we are striving from m ore automation and techn ology to fill some of the g aps, Germaine said. One of the clerk employees w ho left recently was I nformation Technologies D irector Tony Qualls, but G ermaine has not replaced Q ualls, just shifted Qualls d uties to Business Services D irector Jerome K aszubowski. We have all had to help o ut, but I am not sure what e lse we can trim, K aszubowski said. The moves by Mr. G ermaine have been good o nes, and automation is helpi ng out, and so far we have a voided layoffs. But there is n ot a whole lot more we can t rim, Kaszubowski said. One of the technology a dvances that has increased e fficiency, according to G ermaine, has been scanning a ll the records and putting t hem on-line. That has saved a lot of t ime researching. One r ecords search that would h ave taken close to a week c an now be done in about f ive minutes, Germaine s aid. Additionally, these c hanges are giving the public m ore access to the documents a s well. These are really the c itizens documents, and my j ob is to protect and make t hem available. The changes i n technology are making that happen, explained Germaine. For example, the law library has been taken over by my department and we have added a self-help center to that area. Acitizen can now come in over lunch and research not only legal stuff, but public records as well, or you can now down load your property deed from home or work, without a need to come in. And it is all free to the public, Germaine said. Additionally, there is a lot more access to databases like Lexus-Nexus. We cannot give legal advice, but we can help those who cannot afford an attorney find the information they need for their legal issues. The change to on-line access has also cut our budget for micro-fiche maintenance. We have records back to 1926, and soon we will have access to all of those records available online, Germaine said. Right now the on-line data base just goes back to 1982, according to the website. We have also put the court dockets online. We no longer have to make 10 or more copies each day. Thats a small amount, but in these bad times, every little bit helps, Germaine said. A clerks job is to keep the records safe and make them accessible to the public, I think we are doing a great job of that, despite the cutbacks. To research documents or for more information, go to the clerks website at http://www.hcclerk.org Oh, and if anyone has a problem with anything, they can also see me at room 305 in the government building, Germaine added. Continued from page 1A Page 6ANews-SunWednesday, April 6, 2011www.newssun.com c ent of the total city budget. I ts not bankrupting the c ities. The average annual pens ion payment, she added was b etween $16,000 and $ 17,000. It takes police offic ers and firefighters 10 years t o vest in the plan. As highr isk workers, they accrue 2-4 p ercent per year of service. By comparison, the avera ge government worker a ccrues 1.6 percent per year o f service. Knapp said that judges and e lected officials who need t o serve two terms to become v ested accrue at the highe r, first-responder, rate. She said that typically, a p ension is determined by taki ng the top five earning years f rom the last 10 years of an individuals service and averaging the amount, of which the worker receives 48 percent. Unlike most government employees in non-risk jobs who can expect a 30-year career firefighter and police officers typically do not serve as long. In my opinion, Knapp said, its unreasonable to expect police and firemen to work until they are 62 or 65. A20-year career is much more common. But, she added, members willingly increased their contribution by 2 percent to pay for the 20 and out option. Knapp has many concerns about the current discussions going on in city councils and the state legislature. She is especially worried that governments may try to do away with defined pension plans altogether those where an individual can count on a specified amount every month and move to 401(k)s or defined contribution plans. If that happens, she said, one result would be the loss of the insurance premium tax dollars from the state. I really think to a great respect cities and the state feel so out of control they are looking to save money, she said. It frustrates me that uninformed people made decisions that set themselves up. The money has to come from somewhere, and now they want the membership to pay.

Miller in their recall efforts. The Exploratory Committee believes that each of the council members eligible for recall at this time (Gray, Heston, and Miller) are each guilty of allegations 1 thru 7. However, it is the general consensus of the majority questioned, that Councilman Miller should not be included in the recall process at this time, the website stated. The website also states that the response to a recall has been good. Since the formation of the exploratory recall committee several weeks ago, committee members have been measuring the level of interest for the launch of a Recall Petition Initiative. Reasons for supporting a Recall have been varied, and support has been positive, the site states. The committee has posted their grievances for the recall and utilized the city charter, code of ordinances and policy manual to support their claims, writing: Anumber of allegations were made, and violations documented. The Exploratory Committee has refined the list, reducing it to those items most often mentioned, the site states and then carries on to list those grievances. 1. Neglect of Duty, Incompetence, council persons Gray & Heston fail to properly interpret and accurately apply the provisions of the City Charter, and the Performance Rules and Regulations (PRRs). This negatively affects their ability to effectively participate in policy making decisions or to cast educated and informed votes on issues that come before the Avon Park City Council. 2. Misfeasance, by authorizing a $12,500.00 dollar pay raise for a department head without a required majority vote of City Council in an open meeting a direct violation of Codes of Ordinance Article 4, Division 1, Sec. 2-242 3. Neglect of Duty, after gaining first hand knowledge of a current employeesfear of retaliation from other city employees, council persons Gray & Heston refused/failed to initiate an investigation into the allegations see: City Charter: Article IV, Section 24 p2, Investigations. 4. Incompetence, Neglect of Duty, Malfeasance, by failing to follow the City Charter requirement of maintaining a Civil Service Board, even after being advised that not having one was a violation of the Charter see: City Charter, Subpart B Related Laws, Article 1, Section 4. 5. Neglect of Duty, after being informed that a department head was in violation of the PRR (City Ordinance/Law) council persons Gray & Heston neglected to direct the City Manager to require said department head to comply with the PRR, allowing the continued violation of the residency requirement: living beyond 5 miles of the City of Avon Park a direct violation of Codes of Ordinance Article 4, Division 1, Sec. 2-244 6. Incompetence, Neglect of Duty, Malfeasance, failu re to follow the City Chart er mandate of requiring the su ccession of the City Clerk to Interim City Manager se e: Article 3, Sec.10, (4c),( 3) and Codes of Ordinance Article 4, Division 1, Sec. 2188 7.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK In a roller coaster season that has seen a 14-game winning streak followed by a six game losing skid, the South Florida Panthers are keeping things additionally interesting with their spate of one-run games. Saturday was another example of that as the team eked one out over the visiting Titans of St. Petersburg, 4-3, behind another strong start from Andres Pops Lopez. The right-hander went six innings and limited the potent St. Pete attack, before giving way to Kevin Welborn who fired three innings of stellar relief. The offense, meanwhile, was paced by Brandon Kirbys three hits, including a double, and a two-run homer listed among the two hits for Brad Harrison. This makes three wins in the last four games for the Panthers as they moved their Suncoast Conference record to 3-7. Its amazing how many one-run games we have played, head coach Rick Hitt said. Eight of our last ten have been one-run games. And despite the win, and recent winning way, he is still seeing a concern thats keeping the contests so tight. We continue to leave a small village on base and cannot seem to get the right guy to the plate to break these games open for us, Hitt said. We are hittin g .181 with runners in scorin g position in our last 1 0 games. In those games, Sou th Florida has won three by o ne run, lost five by one and o ne by two, which again exemp lifies Hitts concern. Thats 109 runners left o n base in the last 10 games, he said. Thats a huge stat co nsidering the results. But while the offense h as struggled to score ju st enough for the recent su ccesses, it is the pitching th at is keeping things encoura ging. The positive is that o ur staff has been keeping us around, even without our to p three arms, Hitt said. Th ey are keeping us in every gam e.

News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE A ndres Pops Lopez turned in another top-notch performance, holding down St. Petersburg Saturday in SFCCs 4-3 win. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAnd to think, the Sebring baseball squad was looking up at an early deficit in Monday nights match-up at DeSoto. But the Blue Streaks more than came back, they then romped their way to a 13-3, 5-inning, mercy rule win in Arcadia behind the pitching of Nate Green and a number of booming bats. Chris Steele got the Bulldogs on the board with an RBI single in the bottom of the first for a 1-0 lead and it would be until the third that the lead would hold. But in that top half of the third, Sebring plated three to take their first lead. With one out, Gunnar Westergom singled and stole second before Seth Abe ln drew a base on balls. Adouble steal soon ensu ed to put runners at second an d third when Matt Randall s sacrifice fly broug ht Westergom in with the tyin g run. Evan Lewis th en sized up a fastball an d unloaded on it, home ring to left to put t he Streaks up 3-1. But DeSoto wou ld respond in itshalf of the frame with Stee le again doing the damage wi th a two-run double to ev en things up at three apiece. But any thoughts of th is one remaining tight wou ld soon dissipate as the Strea ks put up a touchdown in t he fourth to take the lead f or good.

With two out, Westergom g ot plunked to load the b ases and Abeln, Randall a nd Lewis each worked the c ount for walks to bring r uns in. With the bases still l oaded, Jesse Baker lashed a l ine-drive double to left to s core two more before H offner started what he fini shed with a double to bring i n the final runs of the i nning. Now with the cushion of a 1 0-3 lead, Greene cruised t hrough the bottom of the f ourth, setting the Bulldogs d own in order before his o ffense tacked on three m ore in the fifth. Westergom walked, a dvanced to second on an A beln ground out and s cored when Randalls fly to r ight was mishandled for an e rror. Bakers single moved R andall to third and an error o ff of Hoffners bat brought h im in and Greene finished o ff the scoring with an RBI s ingle up the middle. Greene then finished off D eSoto by going one, two, three in the bottom of the fifth, striking out the final batter, to end the game early on the ten-run rule. Randall and Baker paced the offense with three RBI each with Lewis adding two on his homer. Greene struck out six and walked just one in his five innings of mound work. The win moves the Streaks record to 16-3 on the season, 6-2 in district play, and was the teams sixth in a row since their mid-season, three-game losing streak. And the run of good baseball comes at a good time with key district match-ups on the upcoming docket.

Box 1538, Gastonia, NC 28053 or send an e-mail to mdutton@gastongazette.com For Dale Earnhardt Jr., Martinsville Speedway was the site of the one that got away. The weeks remarkable fact: In the Camping World Truck Series, Todd Bodine has never won on a track shorter than a mile. Kevin Harvick has rendered moot the point of Richard Childress Racing getting off to a slow start. Two straight victories isnt too slow. Jimmie Johnson cried a foul of his own after his Martinsville hopes ended with a NASCAR speeding penalty. I wasnt speeding, he declared. They (NASCAR) didnt like how it looked, the way I managed my timing lines. There is just no way. The Goodys Fast Relief 500 was the nest race of the season to date. It was vintage Martinsville. Martin Truex Jr. thought soft walls saved him after the throttle stuck on his Toyota. Kasey Kahnes Toyota provided some cushion, too. It was about as serious as a crash at Martinsville gets. Harvick has now won at Martinsville in Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck series. At his best track, Denny Hamlin dropped two more positions in the points, falling from 17th to 19th. He won both races last year at Texas Motor Speedway and needs another. Already this season, Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch, Kurt Busch and Tony Stewart have led the Sprint Cup standings. After six races, Jeff Burton ranks 28th in the points standings. Fortunately, he has 20 regular-season races left to muster some run at a spot in the Chase. Whos hot: Kevin Harvick has won consecutive races for the second time in his career. ... Dale Earnhardt Jr.s runner-up nish was his best since the 2010 Daytona 500. Whos not: At Martinsville, a 12thplace nish was a crushing outcome for Denny Hamlin, who had won the previous three races there. ... Kasey Kahne was an innocent victim of a stuck throttle on Martin Truex Jr.s Toyota. Earnhardt Jr. V E R S U SMarcos Ambroses Ford was struggling after being caught in the outside lane and losing a number of positions. Along came Michael McDowells Toyota, which seemingly rammed Ambroses car. I was a victim, said Ambrose. I dont know what McDowell was thinking. It was uncalled for and unfortunate for us. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: How it happened was surprising, but Ambrose was struggling, trying desperately to get back in line, and it appeared he had finally succeeded, until AMBROSE VS. MCDOWELLBy Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekKimi Raikkonen, the 2007 World Driving Champion, has reached an agreement to race in several Camping World Truck Series races later this year. Raikkonen will drive a Toyota Tundra fielded by Kyle Buschs team. The 31-year old Raikkonen, a native of Espoo, Finland, has captured 18 Formula One races and is presently racing world rally cars. He is scheduled to make his NASCAR debut on May 20 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Raikkonens most recent F1 victory occurred on Aug. 30, 2009, in the Grand Prix of Belgium at Spa Francorchamps. Putting up a number Martinsvilles Goodys Fast Relief 500 marked the 800th Cup race for 52-yearold Mark Martin, who finished second in the Cup points standings as recently as 2009. Martin finished 10th. His one-time teammate, Carl Edwards, said: When I was around Mark, I thought, man, this guy is driving it 150 percent every time he goes to the race track, and I will draw off that. I still use him as an inspiration when Im working out or when Im practicing or talking to Bob (Osborne, Edwards crew chief). I think about that a lot. Martin has won twice at Martinsville, the most recent being in 2000. Adroit plug Most drivers publicize their sponsors in predictable ways. Ryan Newman gave a nuanced answer to a question about the athletic requirements of being a race driver. Most sports require great athleticism to be a great performer, he said. In our sport, I dont think it requires great athleticism. What it requires is the same thing the Army (i.e., his sponsor) is all about, which is the mental, and the physical and the balance of emotional strength to be successful. Oddly enough Three prominent, experienced drivers Matt Kenseth, Tony Stewart and Mark Martin were penalized for switching lanes before crossing the start-finish line on restarts at Martinsville. A pit-road speeding penalty, which he vehemently protested, cost Jimmie Johnson a shot at a seventh Martinsville victory. In their own worlds Kyle Busch and Johnson both claimed they had no idea it was April Fools Day. No word on whether or not they knew that April Fools and April 1 are the same thing. Fh Kimi Raikkonen punches his NASCAR ticket By Monte DuttonNASCAR This WeekMARTINSVILLE, Va. A wildly exciting Goodys Fast Relief 500 victory was the 16th of Kevin Harvicks career. Coming on the heels of a victory a week earlier at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., the win also marked the second time Harvick, 35, has won consecutive Sprint Cup races. The Bakersfield, Calif., native has won in all three major NASCAR touring series Cup, Nationwide and Camping World Truck at the .526-mile oval. No one has expressed more outspokenly a desire to unseat the winner of the past five championships, Jimmie Johnson, than Harvick, who finished third in the 2010 Chase. Here we are, six races into the season, and I feel like we can take more chances than we did last year. I feel like we can really push the limits and its good for our confidence, to say the least, he said. Harvick outdueled Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the waning laps at Martinsville, winning for the first time at the track in Cup. His No. 29 Chevy, fielded by Richard Childress Racing, carries sponsorship long associated with Earnhardt Jr., and it was Harvick who succeeded Dale Earnhardt at RCR after the elder Earnhardts fatal crash in the 2001 Daytona 500. Well aware that his victory wasnt particularly popular, given that Earnhardt Jr. has gone 99 races since his most recent win, Harvick said, Yeah, I could see the people just going crazy coming off of turn two when he (Earnhardt) took the lead from Kyle (Busch), and as I was catching him, Im, like, man, Im going to be the bad guy here. But Ive got to do what Ive got to do. It was cool to see [Earnhardt] back up there in contention for a win. I want to see Dale Jr. win. It would be great for the sport, and I think today went a long ways to showing how competitive that they can be racing for wins, and thats what we need. We all need him to win. But Im not going to back down.Harvick Takes Two AlreadyPast contender and RCR driver clearing his way on trackJohn Clark/NASCAR This WeekTwo wins in six races have pushed Kevin Harvick into the limelight. Harvick cleared Dale Earnhardt Jr. with four laps left for a Martinsville win. KEVIN HARVICK SPRINT CUP SERIESNo. 29 BUDWEISER CHEVROLETAn April PR FoolHomestead-Miami Speedways issuance of an April Fools Day press release caused quite a stir among the media covering the weekends races at Martinsville Speedway. According to the release, the November races at the 1.5-mile track would be run clockwise instead of counter-clockwise, meaning that it would be contested with right-hand, not left, turns. The announcement, of course, was a hoax. Ambrose McDowell Not your sons NASCAR?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, There is probably an array of reasons for the decline in both attendance and viewership for NASCAR events. Chief among them, for those of us who have been longtime fans, is the COT (Car of Tomorrow). We remember when the car you saw in a race on the weekend was similar, if not identical, to the car which was on display in your local dealers showroom. It is, remember, National Association for STOCK CAR Auto Racing, not some generic, contrived car where they look the same except for the decals. Thats called IRL. My 21-year-old son is currently working on two project cars, a 1996 Impala SS and a 1954 Ford. He and his friends do not care for NASCAR for much of the same reasons. He says that the cars produced today could not compete in NASCAR. For the most part, they bring the younger generation to NASCAR. It is my experience that there are two types out there, those who like the high-revving, bumblebee-sounding street racers and those, like my son, who are into the muscle cars. You are not going to interest either group. You might have some influence on the second if they could go to a dealer and buy a COT to drive on the street, but, as it is, there is no connection between NASCAR and that younger generation. Robert Freeman Jr. Bonnerdale, Ark. Thanks for your insight. You make some fine points.

It was a pleasure for Tropical Harbor residents to welcome the children. Brenda asked her group of women to come forward and stand behind the children as she explained all the sewing this group of women do for the children. They make bibs, sleeping mats, blankets, etc., only to name a few. Brenda then presented Margarita Ojeda with a check for $700, which was obtained by the residentsgenerosity when they played Crazy Cards and other needed projects. The children were excited to ride in the school bus. Before ending the meeting, Donna asked Barbara Sweed for a Sunshine Report. Barbara is substituting for Carol Noel while Carols husband is in the hospital. She went on to say that Louis Wackershausers brother, Embert, passed away. Mike Colliers father, Wade Collier, passed away. The following residents are in the hospital: Wil Noel, Patricia Schweiger and Elaline Zahakaylo. Keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers. She has sign-up sheets on the table for all to sign. The meeting ended at 10:15 a.m. March 29 we had our Ladies Coffee. Our emcee and coffee maker was Vickie Echelberry. We had 23 ladies present. Vickie read the names of residents who are celebrating their birthday or anniversary. Barbara Sweed read the names of persons who were in the hospital or who have passed away. Under old business, our newly purchased eight-foot tables have been delivered. It will be so much easier for committees to set up since they are much lighter in weight. She asked the activities persons to come forward to inform the women of coming events. Ann Rissmiller told the women not to forget that the Spring Musical will be this Saturday beginning at 7 a.m. Paula Bannister is looking for people to help the dates of the race, which are April 910. Before ending the ladies coffee, it was brought to our attention that a new cover will be installed to close off the kitchen area when it was not being used. Mr. Rickert has agreed to pay half. A motion was made by Alice Fazio and seconded by Bonnie Allen that we pay the other half. All agreed. In closing, Arlene Clouston read a little story called Learning to Run.

DearAbby: I have been d ating a wonderful woman I ll call Shannon for a year a nd a half. She has most t hings that I want in a partn er, and I often feel shes b etter than I deserve. Were i n our early 30s, and S hannon is saying she will s oon need some kind of idea w here we are going in the f uture. Im having trouble with t he notion of committing to h er forever because Im still a ttracted to other women. (I h avent been involved with a nyone else since starting to d ate her.) More worrisome, I m afraid Ill meet someone I m more attracted to a few y ears down the road. How can I be sure that S hannon will make me happ ier than anyone else I might m eet in the future? Conflicted in Washington State DearConflicted: You say S hannon has most things y ou want in a partner. Yet I s ense that youre not as p hysically attracted to her as y ou think you should be. If t his woman does not appeal t o you, then face it shes n ot for you. Of course, regardless of h ow attractive ones partner i s, there are no guarantees t hat anyone male or female wont meet someone who i s different and appealing at some point in the future. But those who are mature and committed usually realize they have enough invested emotionally in their marriage and children that they can resist temptation. Its called being an adult. DearAbby: At least once a week my boss and I drive together from our office to meetings throughout town. She always insists on driving. My problem is, she drives erratically and I often feel in danger with her behind the wheel. Not only does she swerve in and out of lanes without signaling, she is often talking on her cell phone (which is not illegal in our state). Id be happy to drive. I have a comfortable, reliable car and a safe driving history. I have offered, Id be glad to drive so youll be free to give your full attention to important phone calls. None of my efforts has worked. I dont want to be rude or insulting and certainly dont want to create an awkward situation with my boss but I dont want to keep putting myself at risk with her terrible driving. Id be grateful for some advice. Riding Shotgun in Miami DearRiding Shotgun: Its time for another more direct chat with your boss. You should not have to worry every time you get into a car with her that you might not arrive in one piece. Tell her: When you talk on the phone while you drive, it makes me very nervous. Im concerned about my safety as well as the safety of others when you do it. If you dont want me to drive so you can make your calls, I will meet you at our destination. DearAbby: After her second mammogram in 10 years, my mother-in-law now needs a double mastectomy. An annual mammogram would have caught it early enough to prevent its spread. Since I have trouble remembering when it has been a year since my last exam, I decided to schedule my annual exam on my birthday. Now I will always remember when its time for my annual gift to myself preventive health care. Annual Alison in California DearAnnual Alison: Thats an excellent suggestion. Associating annual medical exams with a holiday like Valentines Day would be another. 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. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Abby shares more than 100 of her favorite recipes in two booklets: Abbys Favorite Recipes and More Favorite Recipes by Dear Abby.

Did you ever sit and wonder how your life would be if you had only made a different decision? One time I was queuing up an e-mail to go out at a later date. By accident I put yesterdays date in the box. Programmers can be so funny sometimes. Alittle error message window pops up and says, I know you had to send this message yesterday, but I just cant do it till my time machine gets back from the shop. Well folks we dont have time machines and if we did would we really want to use them. Our lives are the decisions we have made. Albeit good or bad; they are the decisions that send us on our journey through life. Reminiscing is not negative but regret can take years from you. Why do we beat ourselves up over decisions we have made? We dont have to live in regret anymore. We can release the regret by forgiving ourselves of those bad mistakes and accepting them as part of our path to where we are today. Bad decisions help us to make better choices in the future. There are many reasons we made regrettable decisions in our past. The first one had to do with our impetuous and rebellious teenage years. Those years are no different than the terrible twos. We have to prove ourselves. No one could tell us anything. We didnt listen because we thought we knew it all. Our parents tried their best to keep us from making the same mistakes that they did, but we had to make our own mistakes in order to learn something from them. There is nothing like a dose of reality to send us in a different direction. We may not have a time machine to change the past but we do have a type of a crystal ball and it is in our heads. The power of that crystal ball comes from all those decisions we have made in the past and what we have learned from the good ones and the bad ones. Those choices become the filters that help us to process the decisions we have to make every day. We dont get a do over in real life. Or do we? We are destined to continue to make the same mistakes if we dont learn from them. One New Years Day I used my crystal ball filter system to figure out why I had trouble keeping my home clean. When I examined the system that had worked once it was easy to see the mistakes that I had made in using the Sidetracked Home Executive card file; it was a great system. In my impetuous rebellious state of mind, I had to do it my way. Doesnt that sound familiar? The first thing I figured out was that I had never established a habit. Then I noticed how hard I was on myself by trying to do everything at once in addition to piling on more and more to do. I decided to be nice to myself by only pick ing one habit at a time to practice. I even gave mysel f a grace period of 10 days; instead of beating myself u p when I would miss a day, I would jump back in withou t having to start back over. W e hate that defeated feeling o f failure. There were no excuses because I didnt have to be perfect to establish a habit; I had a whole month to do it. The rule wa s I could not skip two days in a row. Anybody could do it That first habit was shin ing my sink. When that worked I added another hab it the next month. Each new habit was setting the found ation for keeping my home clean and shiny as well as getting rid of those awful regrets. We dont have to be stuc k in our own Groundhog Da y movie. We have a choice to use our filter system to help us make different decisions We have our brains that can think. We have the ability t o take advice instead of rebelling against it. We are a crystal ball because the choices we make today set the path for our future. Are you ready to FLYby letting go of your regrets an d forgiving yourself? Our choices have made us who we are today. When we lear n from our mistakes we can use them as a filter to keep us from making those same bad choices again.
