The vehicles were stored in a back lot at Sebring Motor Estates, off Kenilworth Boulevard. They were unoccupied at the time. City of Sebring firefighters responded, putting the tough blaze o ut within 40 minutes. The heat was intense, the rising column of smoke thick and black, fueled by fabric and flammable plastics. I heard a commotion, said Joan Ferguson, and came out. I just saw the smoke and flames. It happened so fast. Ferguson lives on Denise Avenue facing the parking lot where the v ehicles were stored. Our concern was, you know, if anybody was cooking in there, but thank God, everybody is all right. Its so dry, we were afraid for our homes, afraid the grass would catch fire and spread to our homes. There was no word at press time on the cause of the fire.

PB: Power Ball Lottery Center C ourtesy photo Recently, the Highlands County Board of County C ommission sponsored its annual Wellness Event. While this event is worthwhile to employees and county retirees a like, this years event was especially noteworthy due to the recognition of one special employee G.R. Ron Beritcho, who has been employed by the county since 1993. A 20-p lus year veteran, Beritcho is an asset to the county and a p ositive role model to many.

W orley noted that she made a public records r equest for the electronic copies of the towns Quickbooksa ccounting data close to a year ago, b ut has not received a copy. Town Clerk Arlene Tuck informed Worleyt hat certain personnel information and exempted mater ials, like social security numbers, cannot be extracted from the records, andt herefore Tuck cannot release the information. T own Attorney Bert Harris agreed at a town meeting in February thatc ertain information was exempt and protected and that the council had to d ecide how to best provide the information. H arris passed out electronic copies to each council member and informed them the Quickbooks data was valuable with thee xempted information, but left the decision to the c ouncil about if the data was public records. At Worleys prompting, the council approved the funds to hire a Quickbooksc onsultant to filter the data before passing it out to the public. Worley was concerned that the information was not currently available and thec onsultant would not be working to make the data a vailable until after tax season. I am making a s tand, Worley said Monday. Im not g oing to vote on anymore of these until I get the details in Quickbooks. After a lot of f uss, I have to say, I made two phone calls and found s omeone who could solve the problem, but now I am being told it cannot ber eady until after tax season. W orley also said she was concerned the public record was being stalled longe nough. I told Bert (Harrisat if we didnt do this now, it w ould be put off until after tax season. Now Im being t old it will be after tax season before it can be worked on, Worley said. I think stalled is the wrong word to use, said Worley seeks more transparency in Lake Placid budget records Worley See WORLEY, page 7A Drum Circle gathers today at centerSEBRING The Community Drum Circle will take place behind the Sebring Civic Center, 355 W.

This was accomplished, m oreover,during difficult financial times and complicate d by state mandates that were typically unfunded,and sometimes impossible to achieve in the real world. After years of collaboration a nd effort,we are depressed and dispirited over the recent t eacher contract negotiations and impasse. The district administration and union worked well together to create a new teacher evaluation system,which is why itd isturbs us to see the lines of communication shut down between the two essentialg roups. As for the basic issues,on the one hand while weu nderstand how hard teachers work,and how much of their p ersonal time and money they donate to their students teachers have to understandt hey are not the only ones feeling a financial pinch. Many i ndividuals today are dealing with salary freezes or cut back hours. Many families are in as difficult,or worse,financial circumstances. Many peoplew ork just as hard,under equally difficult circumstances. T eachers have to accept that if the money isnt there for a step increase,then it isnt there. On the other hand,we regret to say we do have questionsa bout how the school board books are kept. Not that we suspect shenanigans we do not but even so,the numbers are impossible to track. This isa direct result of Superintendent Wally Coxs leadership. In an interview published January 13,2012,Cox said theo nly way to understand educational funding is to look at the big picture,adding that theu nion is mistaken to rely on a budget line by line. Where the rubber hits the road,Cox said, is the actual bottom line. That tells us how we did. U nfortunately,thats like eating a hot dog without knowing its ingredients. B ut money,while important, is not the only issue. Trust is j ust as critical. Teachers as a group are true professionals educated,dedicated and determined to make a difference. They are,for them ost part,thoughtful individuals with a strong sense of purp ose and the ability to work together with others. They have proved themselves to be constructive partners,and should r emain included in the evolving teacher evaluation process. After all,the system is still being designed and every teachers career hangs on thef inished product. In fact,they have earned the right to a voice. One of the negotiators for the school district Tuesday said the teachers were concerned about teacher evaluations because they feared theu nknown. Thats true,but we f eel it isnt just teachers who a re wary about the future. District leaders fear the unknown just as much,which is one reason the district insisted on complete control over the process. At a time when we need to work together it is ominous to see lines being drawn in the sand and divisions forming between groups who should be a llies. If the people who have worked well together in the past,and who share the common goal of educating our y oung,have a falling out,how will we ever solve our shared p roblems? Find a way to work together The News-Sun has watched with admiration as teachers,administrators,the superintendent and school board,with the support of parents, worked together to improve public education in Highlands County over the years. OK,I admit it. When I wrote last weeks column about the Republican primaries,I did not see RickS antorum dropping out as quickly as he has. This is w hy I remain your humble and snarky columnist as opposed to a professionalp olitical analyst. Santorums exit did not g o unnoticed. There are people on Facebook who have made it clear thatS antorum is a couple of tacos short of a combo plate,if you get my drift. A nd a few of them referred to Santorum in terms that w ere,to say the least,disrespectful. His daughter had just been readmitted to the hospital a few days before. Hew as leaving the race. I wondered if the snarky labels were called for. Im not saying the people who use these labels are evil,bad people. Some of them are friends of minea nd they put up with me, proof that they are,to say t he least,tolerant. But I find that the jabs still bug me. As do the less-than-respectful comments of others that noto nly target Santorum,but others in the presidential race,including the president. Am I trying to say that p eople have to love everyone? Absolutely not. People have a right to their opinions. My friends arent required to like Santorum, any more than Im required to think President Obama is the next best thing to sliced bread. Then am I saying people dont have the right to be disrespectful? No,Im not saying that either. Theres this thing called the First Amendment,which gives people the right to spout off. And that means they have the right to call people names. (And that goes for both sides. If you whine about people calling your beloved candidate or political figure names but do it to the opposition,there is a word for that. The word is hypocrisy.) But while I believe that people can say these things,and that they cert ainly dont need my permission to do so,there is that part of me that wishest hey wouldnt. Putting down your oppon ent is not new you just have to go back to the election of 1800,which alsow as,if I remember correctly,when political parties first came into play. ( Hmmm,what a coincidence) When it comes to p olitics,it seems that playing nice isnt in the rule book. But we all say we hate it. That we want a civild ebate. That we should raise the level of public discourse. Im starting to wonder if we mean it. Or is it that we just want our candidate left alone,the things we valuel eft untouched by disparaging remarks or jokes? Do w e want to keep the right to be disrespectful to ourselves but deny it to those who are guilty of disagreeing with us? I m not asking people to love someone you disagree with. Im not even asking people to like them. Or to stop attacking the policiest hat they dont agree with. Such a discourse is needed and valuable. But is it too much to ask people to keep in mind the Golden Rule? It can be summed up in one sentence:reat others the way you wanted to be treated. If we did that,maybe we could do something more productive than call people names. And maybe we could have an honest debate about the issues,a debate we wouldnt be ashamed of. Is that too much to ask? Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by email at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Visit her website at www.laurahware.com. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the staff of the NewsSun. Our political discourse Lauras Look L aura Ware Saving the Tourist Development TaxEditor: The following was e-mailed to all county commissioners as another option for the Tourist Development Tax. I would like to save the Tourist Development Tax by having the county commission place the following on the 2012 ballot,how about you? Shall a sunset be placed in the present Highlands County Tourist Development Tax (Ordinance No. 0102-20); the first sunset to be during the 2014 November Election and every 10 years thereafter. Yes or no? Just to be clear,this would allow the TDC two years to make needed changes,before the first sunset. And allow the citizens to demand accountability,with a sunset every 10 years thereafter. The sunsets could say shall the Tourist Development Tax be allowed to continue for 10 more years. Why could this save the Tourist Development Tax? Because after 15 percent of the voters sign the petition requiring the repeal of the Tourist Tax be placed on a ballot. And if passed by the voters I fear the tax will be gone forever. And by placing the above on the upcoming ballot will allow the voters to either require a sunset or reject a sunset without risking the loss of the present Tourist Development Tax. But in any case,the TDC must be accountable to the citizens of Highlands County and a sunset is the only way to make sure that happens. Bill Youngman Citizens for Government Accountability SebringWhere is the money going?Editor: The editorial about Highlands County Government responsibility and accountability of tax money spent was long overdue. I received a third batch of public records of employeeswages histories and again I have received records that are in contradiction of each other or records not documented. Example one:Salary of one director is listed on his pay rate history as $74,872 yearly effective Dec. 30,2011, but the records of all employees salaries,dated Jan. 20,2012,states his salary as $59,668.41. Quite a difference and which one is correct? Example two and this one appears to have a major error costing the taxpayers thousands of dollars:On Oct. 6, 2006 he was given a 3 percent merit raise from $14.61 to $15.80. At the same time he was given a raise of $0.75 per hour without any documentation as to reason or who authorized it. It appears someone just tacked it on in pencil. On his Pay Rate History on Oct. 26,2006 his pay is listed as $16.80 and there is no documentation or paper work supplied to show why a $2,080 yearly raise was authorized just two weeks after getting merit and a 75-cent raise. And worse,on April 11,2007 he was given a COLA raise of 3 percent on the salary of $16.80 to raise his salary to $17.30. Then on Oct. 1,2007 he was given yet another COLA raise of 4 percent to bring his salary to $18. Lots of raises without proper documentation. There is no paper work or documentation from Oct. 1,2007 to Oct. 10,2008,but on Oct. 10,2008 he received a COLA raise of 3 percent from $26.05 to $26.83. No explanation of how or when he got to the $26.05 salary.Then three months later on Jan. 20,2009 his salary jumped to $36.05. I firmly believe this deserves an independent firms audit. Especially the increase on Oct. 26,2006. I will furnish the names to the commissioners if they would like to explain all these raises to me. Now to the commissioners,I think it is great that they will meet just three times a month. Now they will waste time and money 25 percent less. About a year or so ago they attempted a Pygmalion effect of telling everyone how great Mr. (County Administrator Rick) Helms was. They were not Professor Higgins and Mr. Helms was not Eliza. They finally figured that out and rated him correctly but old Mr. Flip/Flop reversed his rating and kept him in the job. What a mistake. We have too many people who fit into the role of Peters Principle and it is costing the taxpayers millions of dollars. When is the last time we have had a major project that ended up at or under budget and on time? Where is the money going? Someone made a bundle on the Kenilworth property. Where is there justification for a merit raise with such bad and costly results? As far as I am concerned,all the commissioners can resign and we,the citizens and taxpayers,can survive without them wasting our money and stuffing it into their staff's pockets. I would like to hear from the senior citizens who are living on minimum wages so the select few bureaucrats can get richer by paying themselves more of the taxpayers money.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comAVON PARK Its the last step to a nearly perfect piece of military history and involvedp arties are excited about it. The flying target drone that was found in the swampy waters in t he Avon Park Air Force Range 10 years ago now awaits its last piece of the restoration puzzle. T he OQ-19 target drone was used during the Cold War, according to former Army pilots, for g unnery practice of crews on B-52s and B-47s. The rare piece of history was brought to the facility in 2009. T hursday morning, several gathered to get a peek of the last piece of the restoration for the drone. Target Management Office officials, i ncluding Logistics Management Specialist John Allen, traveled from Huntsville, Ala. to b ring the final two pieces. Those are JATs (jet assisted take off) rockets. The two will be added to the sides of the drone, said retired Col. Bill Hutchinson. Hutchinson along with retired Col. Roy W hitton and Avon Park Air Force Range Commander Lt. Col. Paul Neidhardt were just a few of the eager minds behind keeping the drone in Avon Park. It took us over three years to find all the parts. Now we have to clean them (JATs) up and get them mounted on the drone ... Its the last steps to complete, Hutchinson said. Other retired military members were present at the revealing of the JATs and had a vividm emory of the drone when it was in use. I used to shoot at these drones, retired M ajor Randy Smith said. I knew that someone somewhere had to have these JATs. Smith contacted several people before being l ead to Allen, who eventually knew just where to look for the rockets. I didnt have them but I knew who did. They had been just sitting since 1996 so when I heard he (Smith k new where to go, Allen said. The rockets are very rare items. According to Hutchinson and Allen, it took over a year to d e-militarize the parts before handing them over for the drone. We needed to get the explosive parts off before we could use it, Hutchinson said. e have to do some research and see how they were attached. There is space here for what looks like they may have been bolted ont o the sides ... We cant let just anyone get on here, we have to find the right person for the job, Hutchinson said.

Continued from page 2A COMMUNITYBRIEFS B y CURTANDERSON APLegal Affairs WriterM IAMI George Zimmerman persuaded the police not to charge him for killing unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, but the pros-e cutor has accused him of murder. Soon, armed with unparalleled legal advantages, Zimmerman will get to ask a judge to find the killingw as justified, and if that doesnt work, hell get to make the same case to a jury. T he wave of National Rifle Association-backed legislation that began seven yearsa go in Florida and continues to sweep the country has d one more than establish citizensright to stand your ground, as supporters callt he laws. Its added second, third and even fourth chances f or people who have used lethal force to avoid prosecution and conviction using the same argument, extra opportunities to keep their freedomt hat defendants accused of other crimes dont get. M artins shooting has unleashed a nationwide debate on the validity oft hese laws, which exist in some form in most of the c ountry and which prosecutors and police have generally opposed as confusing, p rone to abuse by criminals, and difficult to apply evenly. Others are concerned that the laws foster a vigilante, even trigger-happy mentality thatm ight cause too many unnecessary deaths. An Associated Press review of federal homicide d ata doesnt seem to bear that out. Nationwide, the total number of justified homi-c ides by citizens rose from 176 in 2000 to 325 in 2010. T otals for all homicides also rose slightly over the same period, but when adjusted for p opulation growth, the rates actually dipped. At least two-dozen states since 2005 have adopted laws similar to Floridas, whichb roadly eliminated a persons duty to retreat under threat of death or serious injury, as long as the person isnt comm itting a crime and is in a place where he or she has a right to be. Other states haveh ad similar statutes on the books for decades, and still o thers grant citizens equivalent protections through established court rulings. W hile the states that have passed stand your ground laws continue to model them loosely after Floridas Pennsylvania, Wisconsin andN ew Hampshire put expanded laws on the books last year Florida is unique. One area that sets Florida apart is the next stepZ immerman faces: With the police and prosecutor having weighed in, a judge will decide whether to dismiss the second-degree murder chargeb ased on stand your ground. If Zimmerman wins that stage, prosecutors can appeal. But in another aspect pecul iar to Florida, if the appeals court sides with Zimmerman, not only will he be foreveri mmune from facing criminal charges for shooting the 17year-old Martin even ifn ew evidence or witnesses surface he could not even b e sued for civil damages by Martins family for wrongfully causing his death. You get even more protection than any acquitted m urderer, said Tamara Lawson, a former prosecutor who now teaches at St. Thomas School of Law in Miami. This law seems tog ive more protection than any other alleged criminal c ould dream about. If Zimmerman cant convince the judge of his inno-c ence, he still can use stand your ground to convince j urors. Zimmerman, 28, is facing up to life in prison if convicte d of second-degree murder for shooting Martin on Feb. 26. Aneighborhood watch volunteer in the central Florida town of Sanford, hes aid he fired his 9 mm handgun after Martin attacked and beat him.

City Commissioner Marc Sarnoff learned about the small patch of vacant land now called the Little River Pocket Park from homeowners concerned about a dozen sexual offenders who spend their nights on a nearby sidewalk. County and state law prohibits sex offenders from living near parks where children gather, though city officials say the state allows sex offenders already living somewhere to stay if a park is created after they move in. Sarnoff tells The Miami Herald that he created the park to prevent more sex offenders from being placed in the area.

C M Y K D ear Abby: Im confused about the protocol in thanking or repaying someone after staying several nights at their home. My feeling is, if youre staying with people,the nicest way to thank them for their hospitality is to pay for most,if not all, the lunches and dinners you share with them when you dine out. That way,you lessen the monetary burden of your visit,and it gives you a chance to say thank youfor the use of their home. Some visitors seem to think that when they come to your home,you should not only put them up,but also pay for all their activities while you show them your town. What is correct? Or is it a matter of preference? Visiting from Phoenix Dear Visiting: According to Emily Post,when a guest stays overnight,a nice bottle of wine would be a proper gift if you know your hosts drink and their preference. If there are children in the household,a game they can all enjoy or candy might be nice. If you will be staying longer,she suggests a picture frame with a photo taken during your visit sent afterward,a houseplant in a decorative pot,hand towels or beach towels. And I agree with you that treating your host(s nice dinner during your visit would be gracious and thoughtful. Dear Abby: One of my best supervisors is in a same-sex relationship. She and her partner are raising three wonderful children from previous marriages. I have introduced them to my husband at the office as well as work-related social events. He says he hates them because he believes their relationship broke up their marriages and its wrong to raise their children this way. When he encounters them he refuses to acknowledge them and will snarl when near them. Neither of them have done anything to deserve this treatment,and it makes me embarrassed and ashamed of him. Ive tried to reason with him nothing works. I told him flat out he can have his opinions,but I expect him to treat them with respect. I m to the point where I have to attend work-related functions alone and not allow him to come to my office. That's one solution, but Im still upset about his attitude in general. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Upset in Texas Dear Upset: I suspect that your husbands reason for hatingyour supervisor has less to do with the fact that she and her partner ended their marriages,and more to do with knee-jerk homophobia. Children who are raised in happy homes do better than those who are raised in a household filled with unresolved tension. I cant change your husbands attitude,and neither can you. Only he can do that,but enlightenment isnt likely to be achieved until he recognizes a need for it. P.S. His manners are atrocious,and youre right to keep him apart from your work environment. Dear Abby: Due to a health problem that caused some of my hair to break and fall out,I have recently begun wearing a wig. At a social function a woman who was not a friend of mine approached me and asked if I was wearing a hairpiece. How could I r espond to such a rude question without admitting that I am wearing a wig? Stumped in Pennsylvania Dear Stumped: Try this: ll forgive you for asking that question if youll forgive me for not answering. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren.

C M Y K By CHRISTY LEMIRE A P Movie CriticA little nyuk-nyuk-nyuk goes a long way in The Three Stooges,Peter and Bobby Farrellys featurelength homage to the classics lapstick comedy trio. The Farrelly brothers have wanted to make this movie for years,and for the most part they didnt try to inflictt heir signature gross-out sensibility upon known and revered source material. Yes, there is a scene in which Moe,Larry and Curly get into a urine fight by pointingn aked newborns at each other in a maternity ward. A nd Curly does pass some major gas,but its actually relevant from a plot perspec-t ive. As directors and writers ( with screenplay help from their boyhood friend Mike Cerrone),the Farrellys have shown surprising restraint. Their Three Stoogesiss weeter than you might expect,and its certainly m ore tolerable than their last movie,the crass Hall Pass from last year. B ut its hard to imagine who the film is for today b eyond hardcore fans of the original shorts and 10-yearold boys who double overg iggling at the sight of grown men doubling over in pain. Despite its brisk pace a nd brief running time and even with its episodic struct ure the film is broken up into three individual episodes with a through line that unites them The Three Stoogesgrows veryo ld,very quickly. There are a few cute ideas, though,and some clever casting choices. Every once in a while a pun is good for a chuckle. But the headbonking and the eye-poking,t he face-slapping and the finger-snapping and the cons tant clang of sound effects are too much to bear over an extended period of time. If anything,the Farrellys Three Stoogesmight makey ou want to go back and revisit the original threesome in short doses for a r eminder of how influential their brand of comedy has b ecome. These adventures take place in the present day,t hough,as Larry (Will & Gracestar Sean Hayes in a w ild wig),Moe (Chris Diamantopoulos of and The Kennedys) and Curly( Will Sasso of MADtv) are still living at the orphanage where they were dumped as i nfants,despite the fact that there now grown men in t heir mid-30s. That is one amusing gag:As time passes,different actors play the threesome at various ages, but the nuns who raisedt hem stay exactly the same. And these three actors are doing nearly dead-on impressions of Larry Fine and Moe and Curly Howard, rather than going in a knowing,post-modern directionw ith the characters. Jane Lynch,in a departure f rom her famous snark,plays the kindly Mother Superior; Larry David is a sight to behold as her sidekick,the cranky Sister Mary-Mengele( shes essentially Larry D avid in a nuns habit). One day they inform the Stooges and the other orphans that their home will be shut down if they cant come up with $830,000 in the next month. And so our intrepid (and n aive) trio ventures out into the big,wide world,a place theve never seen before,to try and raise the money.F ish-out-of-water antics, some hurt feelings and mass ive bodily injuries ensue. (The Farrellys did this better back in 1996 with RandyQ uaid as an innocent,Amish bowling prodigy who goes o n a cross-country tour in Kingpin. They get mixed up with a f emme fatale (Sofia Vergara) who hires them to kill her rich husband so that she can r un away with her lover; naturally,this does not go n early as planned. (On a side note:It would be nice to see Vergara play a character besides a saucy temptress once in a while.) A ttempts at contemporizing the Stooges are hit-andmiss the reality show they stumble onto is just cringe-inducingly awkward but there soitenly never mean.

Using hidden cameras a nd actors,the network set up scenarios to see if kids r eally follow their parents instructions to avoid strangers,dont get into ac ar with a drunk driver or dont cheat. T he results will probably depress you. Time and again,children gave their names and addresses to a strangerw ho had taken their picture and talked about putting t hem on TV. Promised free ice cream,they climbed into a van driven by an actorw ho could easily close the door on them and speed a way. Parents watched it all on monitors nearby. I would have lost my m oney if I put a bet on it, one cringing parent said after watching a youngster c limb into a car with an actor pretending to be drunk b ehind the wheel. For four consecutive Sunday nights,Dateline NBCwill show the scenarios,which also test whetherk ids would cheat or discriminate if given the opportunity. NBC hopes parents and children watch the programs together and discuss them,said Liz Cole, executive producer of Dateline. Four mothers who work at Datelinecame up with t he idea,an outgrowth of a show on bullying that aired last year. Not newsin the strict sense,these types of shows tend to do well forn ewsmagazines:ABCs What Would You Do series on Primetime, which sets up various social experiments,is particularly popular among youngerv iewers,which news shows have trouble reaching. Its reality TV at its best,Morales said, because these are trulyt eachable moments. During the special on d riving,several teenagers swear to their parents that they never text or talk on their cellphones when behind the wheel. Their carsw ere equipped with cameras for a few months,and e ven though they knew they were being watched,most youngsters exhibited theb ehavior they said they would never do. T he teens were also set up with actors who pretended to be drunk or high ond rugs. Despite the doubt on many faces,most let the actor grab the keys and get b ehind the wheel. Its the power of peer pressure; too m any youngsters go along with the crowd unless someone is strong enough to take a stand. In the Datelineepisode,a girlw hose uncle was killed in a drunk driving accident was the strong one.

I n 2002,Gary Mullens career as Freddie Mercury began,and One Night of Queen was formed along with his band The Works.S ince then,One Night of Queen has gone from strength to strength and iso ne of the hardest working bands in the land. For the last five years,it has con-s istently performed over 150 shows each year all a round the world. Fans of Queen will enjoy such mega-hits as BohemianR hapsody,e are the Champions,Killer Q ueen,oure My Best Friend,Crazy Little Thing Called Love,Radio Ga Ga,Under Pressure, Another One Bites theD ust,and many others. Widely known as the m ost in demand Queen tribute group,this large scale production is complete witha world-class vocalist, musicians,sound,and lighti ng. Queens Freddie Mercury was one of rocks essential f ront men,thrilling crowds with his flamboyant stage persona and that staggering four-octave range. There are very few people outt here that have the range that Freddie had to go from low to high and just the power that he had but also the softness and thep urity of tone,Mullen said. A s he grew into his late t eens,Mullen began fronting bands and often heard the words,ou sound like Freddie Mercury,but didnt thinkt oo much about it until the year 2000 when he won the m ost votes ever on Stars in Their Eyes,a British reality show on which contestantsi mpersonate their favorite stars. He,of course,impers onated Mercury,singing A Kind of Magic. In 2002,Mullen assemb led The Works,his backing band,around guitarist David Brockett. Mullen worked on becoming Mercury onstage. I guess from watching Freddie over the years,I had subconsciously picked up a few of the moves. But when I started actuallyg oing out and people started paying money to come s ee me,I thought,I really n eed to actually look a bit harder and see what he actually doesbecause Queen fans are very true to the memory of Freddie. Q ueen fans can see that Mullen and the Works a pproach that legacy with nothing but respect. People get what we do because itsd one with passion,he said. s done with care and c onsideration to the memory of Freddie Im paying tribute. Freddie was my h ero.

C M Y K www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, April 15, 2012Page 7B By JOSEPH PISANI A P Business WriterNEW YORK Hollywood wants your money. From The Hunger Gamesto The Avengersto The Dark Knight Rises,studios are rolling out big draws this year to get more people into theater seats. But catching a movie several times a year ise xpensive. The average movie ticket price in 2011 rose to $7.93 from $7.89 the year before,according to the National Association of TheatreO wners. But in many parts of the country,like New York,Los Angeles and Chicago,ticket prices can hover above $10. And youll pay several dollars more for a 3-D movie. A dd a bag of buttered popcorn and a soda,and one person can s pend over $20. A family could spend $80 or more enough to buy a Blu-Ray player and rent a movie t o watch on it. B ut if theres a film you dont want to miss at the theater,here are some ways to cut costs: Get social. Follow movie theater companies on Twitter or likt hem on Facebook. They often post coupons or hold contests on their pages,says Regina Novickis,a savings expert for coupon website PromotionalCodes.com. F ollow the three biggest movie theater chains:AMC Theatres, Cinemark and Regal Cinemas. Chances are one of those companies has a theater near you. AMCT heatres recently posted a coupon on its Facebook page for a free soda when you buy a ticket to Titanic 3Dand something else at the concession stand. Regal and Cinemark post concess ion stand coupons on their Facebook pages every week. T here a must when a small soda and popcorn can run about $8. Movie theaters make huge profitsf rom concession stands. (And weve H EARD some people sneak in their own snacks,but you didnt hear it from us.) Buy someone elses gift card. PlasticJungle.com andC ardpool.com sell unwanted gift cards,including ones for movie theaters. Some are going for as much as 15 percent off their face value. You can also try bidding for them ata uction website eBay.com. Monitor daily deal sites. Movie theater companies and online ticket sellers periodically sell discounted tickets through daily deal websitess uch as Groupon.com and LivingSocial.com. In February, AMC Theaters offered two tickets for $12 on Groupon. Bulk up. If youre a member, warehouse club stores sell bundleso f tickets that can cost less than what you would pay at the theater. B s is selling 4 tickets and a voucher for a small popcorn at AMC Theatres for $34.99. Subtracting the$ 4 for the popcorn,that comes to a bout $7.75 a ticket. Cinemark sells a similar package at Costco. Swipe smarter. Check to see if your credit card has any movie theater perks,suggests Mary Hunt,a uthor of Money Rules for Life. Chase Freedom and Discover are offering 5 percent cash back from April to June for purchases at movie theaters if you sign up for it. V isa Signature cardholders can get $5 off $25 worth of Fandango gift certificates at fandango.com/visasignature. Keep in mind that Fandango does chargea convenience charge between 75 cents to $1.50 per ticket depending on where you live. Its as much as $2 if youre watching it in a large IMAX screen. Hunt also says that some credit c ards may let you use points youve acquired to buy tickets or movie t heater gift cards,so check if that is an option. Research discount days or t imes. Find out if your local theater o ffers discounts for students,seni ors,military or special matinee pricing,recommends Erin Chase,a deal expert at coupon website Savings.com. AMC Theatres,for example,offers discounted tickets before noon at all its locations. Wait it out. Find a theater in your area that features movies that have been out for a few weeks, s ays Hunt. Youll have to wait a few w eeks after a movie debuts to make i t to these types of theaters,but they a re cheaper. In some parts of the c ountry,some of these theaters sell t ickets for as little as a $1. Go old school. Hunt suggests trying a drive-in theater. Many are cheaper than a traditional theater. Find a drive-in near you at Drivei ns.com. The website says there are about 372 drive-ins operatingn ationwide.

C M Y K T here are 113 lakes in Highlands County.A ccess to some of these lakes makes recreationa l activities like fishing and skiing possible. The Highlands County Parks &R ecreation crew is responsible for the design,installat ion and upkeep of 37 boat ramps scattered across the county. They also help outw ith the various parks, sports complexes and natural a reas by working hand in hand with the groundskeepers and other departments to make sure everything is in top shape. R on McClure,Parks and Maintenance supervisor,is p roud of his crew. He had plenty to say on the subject of how they handle toughp rojects. When they get here in the m orning they are already brainstorming about what they are going to do and howt hey are going to get it done. Its a joy to have a challenge. I look forward to seei ng them every day; its nice listening to them talking and f iguring things out. Ron described his office as a think tank.He stated, They put all their ideas together and figure outw hich one will work. They always come up with something.The projects that Ron,Steve Becker,Rex Caddell and Guy Culp are involved in are diverse and o ften times challenging. They have been involved in constructing buildings,pic-n ic tables,garbage containers and any other item that n eeds to be made. They install underground utilities, boat ramps,docks and park-i ng areas. They have renovated buildings,repaired lights,sidewalks,restrooms a nd anything else that may require attention. T his crew has a way of looking at things and formulating ideas to make them work better and safety is always number one priority.T hey look at a job from an angle of how it will affect the people that will benefit from it. For example,the Boggy Branch boat ramp. This is where everybody g oes. The big problem was the road. People would park their cars and they would goi nto the ditch. They had to call a tow truck to get them o ut. So we piped the 125foot ditch and filled over the top. That gave us sevenp arking spaces with trailer area. Then we put sod down. We also put in a new ramp a nd two parking spots on the west side,said Ron. L ake Olivia is another great example. re going to sweeten this all up and try to make the whole place look better,w hatever needs to be done. We like to make everything look nice. Well fix the erosion and everything while were here.A job that originally consisted of installing a new boat ramp and building a new dock became a total site renovation whent hey arrived. We built and installed a new picnic table. K ids were fishing on that dock and it wasnt in a good place,so we decided to puti t where it made more sense and weve made the ramp handicap accessible. We do o ur own surveying. Rex is o n the survey crew. While Steve was operating the backhoe,Rex was telling him the areas that needed to be dug out.E quipped with a device that he designed and made,Rex measured the depth of the water while floating in a one-man raft. It can be useda s a paddle to get me where I need to go and a gauge to measure,stated Ron. When Rex measured an area that was uneven,he would signal Steve to dig there. The raft isa lso great for inspecting the docks and other structures in t he water. At Dinner Lake,the crew made a turn around for vehi-c les with boat trailers to be able to back onto the ramp. We made parking areas, fixed the drainage problems and widened the ramp. There was so much erosion here that we put fill in on thes ides of the road and built it up. We made the ramp wider a nd put slanted sides on it to help with runoff. We also made a slight V in the rampf or better drainage. Each ramp is a custom fit a nd the crew makes sure that when they install it,they are thinking ahead for any issuest hat may come up. Locals help out by talking to the crew and letting them k now which boat ramps need f ixing the most. We listen to the local fishermen; they let us know where the worst ones are. It helps us prioritize. We dont want peoplet earing up their trailers and equipment by trying to launch on a bad ramp,stated Rex. From that word of mouth and their own inspec-t ions,the crew continually works on prioritizing all the ramps and getting them in shape. Highlands County is indeed fortunate to haves uch professionals on the job. Ron is a state certified g eneral contractor. Rex,a residential contractor,Steve and Guy all have vast knowl-e dge and experience not only in carpentry,but most any j ob that comes up. Ron says he is blessedto have such a crew. He stated,They are hard workers. They look forwardt o coming in and all of them have good self-esteem. They a re proud of their work yet still remain humble. The best things you do are the onest hat no one knows about. C orine Burgess is and Environmental Specialist for the Highlands County Parks and Natural Resources Department.

Investment statements (stocks,bonds,mutual funds retirement accounts,etc.) IRS Form 552 contains detailed instructions on what to save and for how long (www.irs.gov). Hold onto certain documents for even longer than IRS audit requirements. For example: Keep records for investments and major assets at least as long as you own them. Save records and tax forms relating to retirement accounts,at least until youve drained their balances. Toss monthly and quarterly loan statements after receiving year-end summaries,but always retain final payoff notices in case the loan erroneously goes into collection and you need proof. Save all tax returns and attachments (Schedules,W-2 form,etc.) indefinitely.The same goes for hard-toreplace personal documents such as birth,marriage and death certificates,divorce, adoption and military discharge papers,will,power of attorney,etc. You can always save actual documents and receipts. But if your goal is to reduce paper clutter,scan copies and save as PDF files. Back up electronic soft copies on an encrypted flash drive or external hard drive in case your computer crashes. And, if youre worried about fire, theft or other disasters,store additional copies in a safety deposit box or with a trusted friend. Recordkeeping is no fun, but compared to tearing the house apart to prepare for an audit,its a small price to pay. Jason Alderman directs Visas financial education programs.

Continued from page 1C m ac n cheese; just a little something to spice it up, Lockhart said. Across the food court, Lockharts UR Salon awaitsn ew clients who are in need of hair care services. S pecializing in cuts and colors,Lockhart has been doing hair for over a decade.T he stylist isnt ashamed to highlight her strong suits but d oesnt take credit for it either. My passion is hair and I good with cuts and colors. Ive been blessed by God with this talent and I use it to do good. I love to serve and I love to see the smiles on peo-p les face when they leave this salon. Everyone comes in beautiful,but they leave with a big smile and looking even more beautiful,saidL ockhart. The inspiration behind L ockharts new business ventures came from one ofH ighlands Countys well known businessmen. Alan Jay (Wildstein) inspired me to do this. He has been so helpful through thisw hole entire process. He calls all the time to check and see how Im doing and if I need anything,said Lockhart. W ildstein and Lockhart were aquatinted through a mutual friend.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunS EBRING The seventh annual Celebrate Junior Achievement Breakfast atC hateau lan Hotel on March 22 was an unforgettable prese ntation of the extraordinary work of Junior Achievement in Highlands County. G uests were inspired by JAs mission and moved by the outstanding speakers, generously contributing $21,810 in donations andp ledges to the economic education program benefitting students in Highlands County Schools from kindergarten through 12th grade. M aster of Ceremony and Junior Achievement chairm an Scott Crutchfield presented Superintendant WallyC ox,founding board member of Junior Achievement in Highlands County,the Junior Achievement USAs Bronze Leadership Award. Then ational award is given to the top half percentile of JA volunteers in the United States. Crutchfield said, Superintendent Coxs lead-e rship is instrumental in the growth of the Junior Achievement program in Highlands County. The School Board along with school administrators are among Junior Achievements most important partners. Superintendent Wally Cox is a remarkable example of that spirit of excellence in leadership. Executive Director of Junior Achievement in Highlands and Polk Counties Lily Romine shared,One of the major advantages Highlands County has over all of the other Junior Achievement programs across our nation is the strong support we receive from the three chambers of commerce. The chamber executive directors recruit JA team leaders who coordinate our high school and middle school programs with the classroom teachers. Each semester the JA team leaders recruit and train the classroom volunteers,as well as recruit interviewers for the Success Skills mock interviews. In our elementary schools the PTs recruit their own volunteers from their studentsfamily members and business partners. Thanks to the tremendous support from the community, last school year 1,696 students were inspired by their Junior Achievement volunteers in 84 classrooms! Junior Achievement Educator of the Year Paula Gainous is an outstanding teacher who encourages her students to plan for their futures as she partners with her JA volunteers to prepare them in the present. Gainous s hared with the guests, Many of the Junior Achievement volunteers were my students when they attend Lake Placid Middle School. By teaching Junior Achievement lessons to my students,they have come full circle. It is most rewarding to see them give back to their community,inspiring students to value their education! Junior Achievement Volunteer of the Year Elizabeth Morris highlighted on the importance of the JA program in our schools. The value of Junior Achievement is immense. It focuses on teaching our youth to make good choices and how to takea few moments and think hard about their future. The best part about it is how fun it is. The whole class benefits ... When students are engaged and involved the whole school feels the positive waves. This program certainly enriches any school curriculum.In a very real way, Morris directly contributes to t he hopes and dreams of Highlands County area students. J unior Achievement Student Scholarship Winner a nd graduate from Avon Park High School Kiri Crommett was the keynote speaker. K iri,who currently attends South Florida Community College,shared with the guests,Junior Achievement taught us how to write ar esume,prepared us for job interviews and how to deal with people in a variety of different work scenarios. I wish all of my co-workersh ad Junior Achievement and took the lessons to heart like I did. Imagine how nice work would be. I appreciate everyb it of help that I get along the way,whether it be money or even more valuable advice. Thank you Junior Achievement and to all ofy ou who have made that possible. As Kiri thanked her mother,grandmother,teacher Cynthia Barrett,and JuniorA chievement volunteer,Tori Trinder,she placed leis around their necks and gave them each a hug. Then she thanked the breakfast guests and donors for supporting Junior Achievement. Junior Achievement is the worlds largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success,plan for their future,and make smart academic and economic choices. JA programs are delivered by corporate and community volunteers and provide relevant,hands-on experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school knowledge and skills in financial literacy,work readiness and entrepreneurship. Today,JA reaches four million students per year in more than 120 markets across the United States,with an additional six million students served by operations in 119 other countries worldwide.

News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Red Devil Steven Roberts flies down the home stretch of the 300-meter hurdles. Roberts would take second at Thursdays District 8-2A meet to qualify for regionals in the event. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID The District 10-4Astandings got their final shakeup Fridayn ight, with Frostproof nabbing the top seed by topping Mulberry 5-1, and Lake Placid grabbing third with a 4 -0 win over visiting DeSoto. The Dragons went with H eath Harris on the hill a gainst the Bulldogs and, as usual, he was economical with his pitches. He throws strikes and thats going to keep your pitch count down, head coach Dan Coomes said of Harrismere 74 pitches over seven innings of work. Tonight he was throwing all his pitches fastball, change-up, curve for strikes. Though DeSoto did start things off with a bit of a threat as Xavier Payne sent a one-out single to right in the first and Devyn Steele reached on an error that put runners on second and third. But a pop-fly that Ricky Miller corralled in short center and a grounder to third got Lake Placid out of the jam and the Dragons would soon take a lead they would never relinquish. Nevada Weaver shot a oneout single up the middle in the bottom of the opening inning, stole second andm oved to third on Tyler Carrs infield single. And during Josh Monteros at bat, Bulldog starter Garrett A nderson uncorked a wild pitch that allowed Weaver to s core for a 1-0 lead. H arris worked a one, two, three second and the offense tacked on another run. Jacob Cram sent a chopper to third with one out, and on a bang-bang play at first, the throw got away, sending Cram scampering to second. Laine Daum reached on another error, one out later, moving Cram to third, and a passed ball brought home the second Dragon run of the night. Afly to left and two ground-outs to third made for a quick top of the third, before another run was added in the bottom. Weaver lead off with a walk and, after a strike out, stole second and moved to third on a ground out. Dragons top DeSoto, grab third Lake Placid4DeSoto0 See LP, Page 3D By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comFROSTPROOF Ten different events will be represented at the Region 3-2A meet in Titusville Thursday,A pril 19, beginning at Noon. T hats because eight Highlands County athletes performed well enough at Thursdays District 8-2A meet in Frostproof to stamp their ticket to regional competition. Four Green Dragons fini shed among the top four in their events, as did four Red Devils, to continue their track and field seasons at least a little longer. The meet, which saw eight teams represented, with nearby and familiar names sucha s host Frostproof, Lake W ales, Tenoroc and Mulberry, also included two New Port Richey schools, Ridgewood and Gulf. And among the dozens upon dozens of athletes aspiring to reach the next level, the mid afternoon sun c ould not have made it any more heated. Starting in the short distances, Avon Parks Lacy Turner came out of the 100meter dash prelims with the fourth fastest time, with Shavarious Wooden alsom aking it to the finals with t he sixth fastest. But with just the top four from the finals moving on, Turner was going to have to hold his spot and Wooden would need to shave some time. Both did just that, with Track and Field sends eight to Regional See TRACK, Page 4D MCTphoto Omar Infante is greeted at the dugout after he scored in the third inning against the Houston Astros at Marlins Park Friday, as the team hopes winning baseball will bring fans back after the Ozzie Guillen incident. By STEVEN WINE Associated PressMIAMI Havana-born Isabel Diaz arrived at the Miami Marlinsballpark two hours before the first pitch Friday, ready to root for the home team but not quite prepared to forget Ozzie Guillens remarks about Fidel Castro. Im here to support the players, Diaz said, and to support all the workers at the stadium who are not at fault for what one ignorant person said. For the first time since the furor enveloping their manager began, the Marlins took the field in their new ballpark in Little Havana, opening a six-game homestand against Houston. Miami won 5-4 in 11 innings. Arriving fans were greeted with salsa music and samples of mango smoothies. There was no sign of any group demonstrations, but some fans may have protested simply by staying away. The 36,442-seat ballpark was about two-thirds full, and announced attendance was 30,169. One spectator waved a sign that read, I hate Fidel but I love the Marlins. Other fans came reluctantly, still angry that Guillen had said he loved and admired Castro. Nancy Azcuy, who came to the United States from Cuba 43 years ago, said shell give up her season tickets if Guillen is back as manager next season. He earns a lot of money to be talking so much trash, she said. Apublic figure has to think about what he says. Among those absent from the ballpark was Guillen, serving a five-game suspension for his remarks. He offered an emotional apology at a news conference Tuesday, but some local leaders, Cuban Americans and even Marlins fans thought he should have been fired. One was Lazaro Diaz, a lone protester standing outside the ballpark shortly before the game. He drove three hours from his home in Fort Myers with his teenage son to express his frustration over Guillens comments. I came here to express that I am against him and that they need to kick him out, Diaz said. He has every right to the freedom of speech, but he shouldnt have said what he did to this community Diaz, who wore a T-shirt that read, Cuba, Si. Castro, No, said two of his uncles were executed in the early years of the revolution. Edwin Rojas and his 10year-old son sold shirts that said, Cuba, Si! Ozzie, No! Marlins Forever. Rojas, a season-ticket holder, said he would keep attending games but understood why people were upset. I can definitely sympathize with what my parents went through and what this means to them, he said. The new retractable roof was closed because of drizzly weather, but even with protection from the conditions, empty seats Friday might not be a fair gauge of any lingering animosity. The Astros arent a big draw, and it was a busy night on the Miami sports calendar. The Heat and Florida Panthers both had home games, with the hockey team playing its first postseason game in 12 years. On the other hand, it was Modest crowd for Marlins game after Ozzie flap See MARLINS, Page 3D B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe final regular season game on the district schedule gave Sebring the chance to open things up a bit in Fridays 9-1 win at Lake Gibson. The Blue Streaks had, after all, sewn up the districts top seed with Tuesdays win at Winter Haven, so the stakes were lessened. And so it was that 15 players had plate appearances, while the only one that didt, Landon Willey, got on base as a designated runner and scored. The community feel extended to the pitching staff, where head coach Buck Rapp assuredly wanted to keep arms loose and sharp, yet not overworked. Four pitchers worked through the contest, with Jordan Baker, C.J. Payne and Garrett Martinez each getting two innings of work, with Kyle Cunningham getting one. The Fighting Braves managed just two hits against the quartet of hurlers, though they did string together a walk and hit batter, along with productive outs, to plate their lone run in the third. Which, at that time, tied the game, after Sebring had scratched for one in the opening inning. But when the Streaks had the chance to answer back, they did. Two runs came across in the fourth and six more in the fifth to put the Blue Streak stamp on their latest win. Nate Greene and Gus Garcia each had two hits, with Greene blasting two doubles and collecting two RBI. Gunnar Westergom also drove in two and added a double. Having gone 6-0 in District 9-6Aplay, Sebring closes out the regular season this week, traveling to Port St. Lucie Thursday and hosting DeSoto Friday and celebrating Senior Night. The team then heads to the district tournament at Winter Haven, Monday, April 23. Streaks win by committee

C M Y K By KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated PressORLANDO Magic center Dwight Howard was diagnosed by a doctor in Los Angeles with a herniated disc in his lower back, a team spokesman said. Howard sat out the Magics 109-81 loss to the Atlanta Hawks Friday night, the fifth game hes missed in Orlandos last seven outings. Magic spokesman Joel Glass said Howard was examined by Dr. Robert Watkins after Howard flew out there earlier Friday for a second opinion for what had previously be called back spasms since he injured his back at the end of March. There is no timetable for his return and it will be based on how he responds to treatment. Howard is scheduled to fly back to Orlando on Saturday. The Magic are now 1-4 without him this season. Magic coach Stan Van Gundy says Howard was in pain following the teams practice Thursday. The coach wasnt optimistic hell be ready to play at Cleveland Sunday or against Philadelphia on Monday. The Magic entered Friday tied in place in the Eastern Conference with Atlanta, though the Hawks hold the head-to-head tiebreaker. They remained in the same spot following the loss. With his fifth missed regular-season game Howard set a new personal high for missed games in a season. He missed four games last season. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, April 15, 2012Page 3D golf tournament chamber; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; golf tournament chamber; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 8 8 9 9 0 0 4 4 SPRINGLAKE GOLF RESORT* NEW; 3.639"; 3"; Black; april ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 8 8 4 4 3 3 7 7 No errant pitch, nor catch, would give Lake Placid a run t his time, rather, Morgan Lott came through with a shot through the left side to plate W eaver and make it a 3-0 game. DeSoto got itsfirst base runner since the first, when Anderson reached on an infield hit with one out. But the inning ended soon after when a grounder to third began a Cram to Miller to Lott double play. C ram then also started the final Dragon rally, drawing a walk and reaching second w hen ball four was a wild pitch that somehow ricocheted over the backstop. The Bulldogs then went to t he bullpen and got the next b atter. But Daum and Miller both worked their counts for walks to load the bases and Weaver came through with a single to bring Cram home. From there, it was just a matter of reaching the finish, which Harris did as he seemed to get stronger. Donovan Day reached to start the fifth, but was soon picked off first before Harris disposed of the next two hitters on called third strikes. A nother backwards K began the sixth, followed by a fly-out to right and grounder to first. And in the seventh, a lazy l iner to short and a one-hopper back to the mound made for the first two outs. And though Chris Steele got hold of one, a hard liner headed for left, Cram came up big with a diving snare to end the game. e didnt do a lot of bad stuff, and we did some good things too, Coomes said. We had some good base running, some key base hits and the defense made some plays especially Cram, a freshm an we brought up, who must have had half a dozen p lays out there tonight. Coming into the night, D eSoto was 4-3 in district play and Lake Placid 3-4. T he outcome put both teams at 4-4, but with the Dragons having swept the season series, the third seed for the district tournament was theirs. Frostproof, which had been 5-2, with idle Avon Park sitting at 5-3, jumped to the top seed with Fridays win. Heading into the tournam ent, which will be hosted by the Red Devils and begins Monday, April 23, Coomes has a good measure of his s quad and what they need to do to succeed. ere not a team thats g oing to just come in and score a bunch of runs every t ime out, he said. We need to play tough. We have good p itching and we play good defense, but we need to execute on offense. We have to take advantage of every situation, any way we can. Continued from 1D N ews-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Heath Harris pitched another gem Friday night, going 7 innings, allowing just three hits, no walks and striking out three as he shut out DeSoto.

LP gets win, third seed for District Tournament only the second game in the M arlinsnew $634 million home. The Marlins have long struggled with poor attendance, and Guillens comments antagonized a large p ercentage of their fan base just as the franchise was enjoying a sense of rejuvenation thanks to the new ballpark. First baseman Gaby Sanchez, whose parents are Cuban exiles, said the best thing the players can do to help the situation is start playing better. After an offseason spending binge, the Marlins were touted as playoff contenders, but they began the homestand 2-5 and last in the NL East. All we can do is go out there and win games, Sanchez said. If we start doing that, hopefully it will start to turn a little bit. Its not going to truly subside, but hopefully it does a little bit. Marlins catcher John Buck agreed some success by the team could help defuse the tension and bring back any fans staying away in protest. inning helps everything, right? Buck said. If we put a fun team on the field, people will come. Marlins broadcaster Cookie Rojas, a former player and a native of Havana, predicted the anger of the Cuban community will die down in the aftermath of G uillens apology. He asked people to forgive him, Rojas said. Youve got to move on. You c ant keep bringing it back. Lets get over with it and play ball. G uillen returns to the dugout Tuesday. Sanchez said he unde r stood both sides of the issue. He said Guillen a Venezuelan speaking English, his second language, in a magazine interview did not say what he meant, but Sanchez understood why his fellow Cuban Americans were so upset. s one of those hot-butt on topics, Sanchez said. You have to understand the Cuban community and everybody of Cuban descent and what their families went through. Ozzie did a great job in his apology. Hopefully the Cuban community will forgive him and start supporting us. I think time will do the job. A ssociated Press Writer Christine Amario contributed t o this report.

And though Wooden did take .02 seconds off his qualifying time, it wasnt quite enough to move him on to regionals. The pair were back at it in the 200-meter dash, with Turner racing to the third best qualifying time and Woodenm aking the finals in the seventh slot. The competition then heated up in the finals, as each of the top five runners saw their times drop, with Tenorocs Travis Tucker breaking the 22 second mark, getting a 21.84, for the win. Turner went from 23.13 to 23.05, believed to be a new Avon Park school record, but the drops in times all aroundh im saw his position slip to fourth, though still moving him on to next weeks regiona l meet. The longer distance runs didnt have any preliminary heats, meaning those runners were going to have to be on top of their game for their one shot. Two Lake Placid runners did just that in the 1,600, with Dalton Shelton taking second and Tobias Kuhn fourth to move on. Shelton, who made it to state this past fall in cross country, then turned on the after burners in the 3,200, winning with a time of 10:50.28, 13 seconds ahead o f his nearest threat. Not being pushed more might explain Sheltons drop in time from his seeded 10:32.52, but shows that he has plenty left in reserve as he moves to stiffer competition. The Dragons then got another double qualifier in Keplet Charite who took second in the 110-meter hurdles and third in the 300. Avon Parks Steven Roberts also advanced in the hurdles, using his long strides to take second in the 300, giving Highlands County two representatives in the event. The Red Devils also got two tossers moving on to Titusville, as Damian Lovett rode a 40-foot, 8-inch shot put toss to take second and advance and Masco Louis hurled the discus 117-feet, 8inches to take fourth and stamp his ticket to regionals. Also rising up was a lone Highlands County lady, Green Dragon Taylor Miller, w ho erased an early lead by Gulfs Paige Pinder to get the fastest qualifying time in the 100-meter hurdles. But soon after, in the qualifying heat for the 300-meter distance of the event, Miller seemed out of sorts, falling behind early and not able to make up much ground. She made it to the finals, barely, with a time nearly four seconds slower than her seed time. I had a hip injury in volleyball, which came up again during soccer season, Miller said. Its been bothering me the past few weeks, so Ive been trying to rest it as much as I could. It started hurting again after I ran the 100, but I couldnt give up. With a remedy of Icy Hot and rest, Miller took advantage of the break in the action before the final heats and nearly equaled her qualifying time in the 100, to take second to Pinder, who knocked .20 seconds off her qualifying time. With the pain still lingering, there was a brief thought of scratching for the 300 finals. But thats not the type of athlete I am, she said. I knew I probably wasnt going to make it, but I tried. Her effort nearly paid off too, as she was just edged out of fourth place by another Gulf runner, Renee Patnode. I had made it to regionals my freshman year in the 100 hurdles and the 4X400 relay, Miller, now a senior said. It felt good to make it back. I was really excited. As should all the Avon Park and Lake Placid athletes who took part and gave it their all in aspiring to reach the next level of competition.

C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Rebecca Becky Fleck, assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction for Highlands County, announced Thursday afternoon she is a candidate for the position of superintendent of schools. In her press release, Fleck said she has great respect for incumbent Wally Coxs business acumen and years of directing the school district through financial crisis as the chief financial officer and superintendent. It was time, however, for someone with a background in instructional leadership to lead the charge to improve our schools and provide our students with an education that will prepare them for success in post-secondary education and careers, the release said. Fleck said she has worked with the students of Highlands County for over 30 years, serving as a teacher, assistant principal, principal, district coordinator and assistant superintendent. According her press release, during her 10 years as coordinator of Management of Information Systems and assistant superintendent, Fleck led the district though the process of attaining full accreditation by NEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Sunday, April 15, 2012 www.newssun.com Volume 93/Number 49 | 75 cents www.newssun .com HighLow 84 63Complete Forecast PAGE 8A Sunshine mixing with clouds Forecast Question: Is the second-degree murder charge against George Zimmerman too severe?

Close to 140 people think so and have voted for the Town of Murals in a recent poll taken by Readers Digest. Eileen May, Greater Lake Placids Chamber of Commerce CEO and director of operations, sent out an email on Friday encouraging everyone to register at the Readers Digest website at www.rd.com/america/ and place their vote. The Town of Lake Placid has been entered into the Reader's Digest V ote for The Most Interesting Town Program. We need your votes, May wrote. I saw it as an opportunity to showcase and market our town, May said. Readers Digest is a very reputable magazine and it was free. According to May, more than 10,000 people visited just the Chamber offices last year and the year before. We take a physical count of our visitors, but those are only the ones that come into the office, she added.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Parents, students and faculty gathered in the Smith Center at Sebring High School Saturday morning to recognize the excellence of Highlands County students at all levels in the areas of math and science. The Florida Highlands 173 Chapter of the Air Force Association, along with the Highlands County School Board, recognized 26 elementary and middle school students and 12 high schools students following a breakfast banquet. Thirty instructors from each level of schools were recognized for their excellence in teaching and instruction. The AFAbegan the Mathematics and Science Honors Program 20 years ago to recognize the outstanding students and teachers in each of the respective areas of study. Former instructor including Bill Hutchinson, Col. USAF (Ret.) along with numerous school administrators and current instructors were present to celebrate the excellence of fellow instructors and teachers. Attendees were able to hear a unique story from the guest speaker, former Avon Park High School Jr. ROTC cadet Marisha Falk. Falk became a member of JROTC her last year at APHS and went on to graduate from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Falk addressed students encouraging them to face their fears and find a passion in life. Ive had fears in my life. But I had to push past them. You have to push yourself in order to do something great, Falk said.

The vehicles were stored in a back lot at Sebring Motor Estates, off Kenilworth Boulevard. They were unoccupied at the time. City of Sebring firefighters responded, putting the tough blaze out within 40 minutes. The heat was intense, the rising column of smoke thick and black, fueled by fabric and flammable plastics. I heard a commotion, said Joan Ferguson, and came out. I just saw the smoke and flames. It happened so fast. Ferguson lives on Denise Avenue facing the parking lot where the vehicles were stored. Our concern was, you know, if anybody was cooking in there, but thank God, everybody is all right. Its so dry, we were afraid for our homes, afraid the grass would catch fire and spread to our homes. There was no word at press time on the cause of the fire.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunThe Highlands County Sheriffs Office has issued a warning about suspected fraud by a duct cleaning service. Acompany going by the name of Environmental Cleaning Services has placed advertisements in local coupon magazines offering duct cleaning service for $49.95, a press relase from the HCSO said. Once at the victims home, the worker(s) find mold and the advertised price is no longer valid. The workers then charge a significant amount more than the advertised price and also ask that the check be made payable to them instead of the company. If any Highlands County residents have done business with Environmental Cleaning Services or any other similar company within the past year and have been charged more than the advertised rate due to the presence of mold, they are encouraged to call the Highlands County Sheriffs Office and make a report. Please call Central Dispatch at 863-402-7200 and a deputy will be sent to your home to get the details. Anyone with information on incidents of this type and who wants to remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward is asked to call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477) or visit www.heartlandcrimestoppers.com/ Page 2ANews-SunSunday, April 15, 2012www.newssun.com pub block; 5.542"; 4.5"; Black; publishers block dummy; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 5 5 5 5 5 5 9 9 KAYLOR & KAYLOR; 5.542"; 1.5"; Black; below lottery; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 8 8 4 4 7 7 9 9 KAYLOR & KAYLOR; 5.542"; 1.5"; Black; above lottery auto accident; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 8 8 9 9 1 1 3 3 April 11 113443454651x:2Next jackpot $14 millionApril 7 71416233643x:3 April 4 41526283547x:5 April 13 118192534 April 12 412142627 April 11 618202231 April 10 814181922 April 13 (n) 6075 April 13 (d) 1611 April 12 (n) 3872 April 12 (d) 3033 April 13(n) 230 April 13 (d) 696 April 12(n) 367 April 12 (d) 833 April 13 3334353822 April 10 161837397 April 6 121938428 April 3 1737424416 April 11 1623424447 PB: 2Next jackpot $113 millionApril 7 513172030 PB: 18 April 4 124334549 PB: 6 Note: Cash 3 and Play 4 drawings are twice per day: (d) is the daytime drawing, (n) is the nighttime drawing. PB: Power Ball Lottery Center Courtesy photo Recently, the Highlands County Board of County Commission sponsored its annual Wellness Event. While this event is worthwhile to employees and county retirees alike, this years event was especially noteworthy due to the recognition of one special employee G.R. Ron Beritcho, who has been employed by the county since 1993. A 20plus year veteran, Beritcho is an asset to the county and a positive role model to many. A smoker for more than 50 years and with the help of Nancy Proverb and her product, an electronic cigarette, Berticho was able to quit. This feat is especially significant as the county just recently adopted a Smoke Free Campus environment.

The main focus of Centennial falls in October Centennial Notebook HCSO warns of fraudulent duct cleaning service COMMUNITYBRIEFS By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Showing concern about government accountability, Lake Placid Councilwoman Debra Worley announced Monday she would vote no on monthly budget approvals until there was more transparency. W orley noted that she made a public records request for the electronic copies of the towns Quickbooks accounting data close to a year ago, but has not received a copy. Town Clerk Arlene Tuck informed Worley that certain personnel information and exempted materials, like social security numbers, cannot be extracted from the records, and therefore Tuck cannot release the information. T own Attorney Bert Harris agreed at a town meeting in February that certain information was exempt and protected and that the council had to decide how to best provide the information. Harris passed out electronic copies to each council member and informed them the Quickbooks data was valuable with the exempted information, but left the decision to the council about if the data was public records. At Worleys prompting, the council approved the funds to hire a Quickbooks consultant to filter the data before passing it out to the public. Worley was concerned that the information was not currently available and the consultant would not be working to make the data available until after tax season. I am making a stand, Worley said Monday. Im not going to vote on anymore of these until I get the details in Quickbooks. After a lot of fuss, I have to say, I made two phone calls and found someone who could solve the problem, but now I am being told it cannot be ready until after tax season. W orley also said she was concerned the public record was being stalled long enough. I told Bert (Harris) that if we didnt do this now, it would be put off until after tax season. Now Im being told it will be after tax season before it can be worked on, Worley said. I think stalled is the wrong word to use, said Worley seeks more transparency in Lake Placid budget records Worley See WORLEY, page 7A Drum Circle gathers today at centerSEBRING The Community Drum Circle will take place behind the Sebring Civic Center, 355 W.

This was accomplished, m oreover,during difficult financial times and complicated by state mandates that were typically unfunded,and sometimes impossible to achieve in the real world. After years of collaboration and effort,we are depressed and dispirited over the recent t eacher contract negotiations and impasse. The district administration and union worked well together to create a new teacher evaluation system,which is why it disturbs us to see the lines of communication shut down between the two essential groups. As for the basic issues,on the one hand while we understand how hard teachers work,and how much of their personal time and money they donate to their students teachers have to understand they are not the only ones feeling a financial pinch. Many individuals today are dealing with salary freezes or cut back hours. Many families are in as difficult,or worse,financial circumstances. Many people w ork just as hard,under equally difficult circumstances. T eachers have to accept that if the money isnt there for a step increase,then it isnt there. On the other hand,we regret to say we do have questions about how the school board books are kept. Not that we suspect shenanigans we do not but even so,the numbers are impossible to track. This is a direct result of Superintendent Wally Coxs leadership. In an interview published January 13,2012,Cox said the only way to understand educational funding is to look at the big picture,adding that the union is mistaken to rely on a budget line by line. Where the rubber hits the road,Cox said, is the actual bottom line. That tells us how we did. Unfortunately,thats like eating a hot dog without knowing its ingredients. But money,while important, is not the only issue. Trust is just as critical. Teachers as a group are true professionals educated,dedicated and determined to make a difference. They are,for the most part,thoughtful individuals with a strong sense of purpose and the ability to work together with others. They have proved themselves to be constructive partners,and should remain included in the evolving teacher evaluation process. After all,the system is still being designed and every teachers career hangs on the f inished product. In fact,they have earned the right to a voice. One of the negotiators for the school district Tuesday said the teachers were concerned about teacher evaluations because they feared the unknown. Thats true,but we feel it isnt just teachers who are wary about the future. District leaders fear the unknown just as much,which is one reason the district insisted on complete control over the process. At a time when we need to work together it is ominous to see lines being drawn in the sand and divisions forming between groups who should be allies. If the people who have worked well together in the past,and who share the common goal of educating our young,have a falling out,how will we ever solve our shared problems? Find a way to work together The News-Sun has watched with admiration as teachers,administrators,the superintendent and school board,with the support of parents, worked together to improve public education in Highlands County over the years. OK,I admit it. When I wrote last weeks column about the Republican primaries,I did not see Rick Santorum dropping out as quickly as he has. This is why I remain your humble and snarky columnist as opposed to a professional political analyst. Santorums exit did not go unnoticed. There are people on Facebook who have made it clear that Santorum is a couple of tacos short of a combo plate,if you get my drift. And a few of them referred to Santorum in terms that were,to say the least,disrespectful. His daughter had just been readmitted to the hospital a few days before. He w as leaving the race. I wondered if the snarky labels were called for. Im not saying the people who use these labels are evil,bad people. Some of them are friends of mine and they put up with me, proof that they are,to say the least,tolerant. But I find that the jabs still bug me. As do the less-than-respectful comments of others that not only target Santorum,but others in the presidential race,including the president. Am I trying to say that people have to love everyone? Absolutely not. People have a right to their opinions. My friends arent required to like Santorum, any more than Im required to think President Obama is the next best thing to sliced bread. Then am I saying people dont have the right to be disrespectful? No,Im not saying that either. Theres this thing called the First Amendment,which gives people the right to spout off. And that means they have the right to call people names. (And that goes for both sides. If you whine about people calling your beloved candidate or political figure names but do it to the opposition,there is a word for that. The word is hypocrisy.) But while I believe that people can say these things,and that they certainly dont need my permission to do so,there is that part of me that wishes they wouldnt. Putting down your opponent is not new you just have to go back to the election of 1800,which also w as,if I remember correctly,when political parties first came into play. (Hmmm,what a coincidence) When it comes to politics,it seems that playing nice isnt in the rule book. But we all say we hate it. That we want a civil debate. That we should raise the level of public discourse. Im starting to wonder if we mean it. Or is it that we just want our candidate left alone,the things we value left untouched by disparaging remarks or jokes? Do we want to keep the right to be disrespectful to ourselves but deny it to those who are guilty of disagreeing with us? Im not asking people to love someone you disagree with. Im not even asking people to like them. Or to stop attacking the policies that they dont agree with. Such a discourse is needed and valuable. But is it too much to ask people to keep in mind the Golden Rule? It can be summed up in one sentence:Treat others the way you wanted to be treated. If we did that,maybe we could do something more productive than call people names. And maybe we could have an honest debate about the issues,a debate we wouldnt be ashamed of. Is that too much to ask? Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by email at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Visit her website at www.laurahware.com. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the staff of the NewsSun. Our political discourse Lauras Look Laura Ware Saving the Tourist Development TaxEditor: The following was e-mailed to all county commissioners as another option for the Tourist Development Tax. I would like to save the Tourist Development Tax by having the county commission place the following on the 2012 ballot,how about you? Shall a sunset be placed in the present Highlands County Tourist Development Tax (Ordinance No. 0102-20); the first sunset to be during the 2014 November Election and every 10 years thereafter. Yes or no? Just to be clear,this would allow the TDC two years to make needed changes,before the first sunset. And allow the citizens to demand accountability,with a sunset every 10 years thereafter. The sunsets could say shall the Tourist Development Tax be allowed to continue for 10 more years. Why could this save the Tourist Development Tax? Because after 15 percent of the voters sign the petition requiring the repeal of the Tourist Tax be placed on a ballot. And if passed by the voters I fear the tax will be gone forever. And by placing the above on the upcoming ballot will allow the voters to either require a sunset or reject a sunset without risking the loss of the present Tourist Development Tax. But in any case,the TDC must be accountable to the citizens of Highlands County and a sunset is the only way to make sure that happens. Bill Youngman Citizens for Government Accountability SebringWhere is the money going?Editor: The editorial about Highlands County Government responsibility and accountability of tax money spent was long overdue. I received a third batch of public records of employeeswages histories and again I have received records that are in contradiction of each other or records not documented. Example one:Salary of one director is listed on his pay rate history as $74,872 yearly effective Dec. 30,2011, but the records of all employees salaries,dated Jan. 20,2012,states his salary as $59,668.41. Quite a difference and which one is correct? Example two and this one appears to have a major error costing the taxpayers thousands of dollars:On Oct. 6, 2006 he was given a 3 percent merit raise from $14.61 to $15.80. At the same time he was given a raise of $0.75 per hour without any documentation as to reason or who authorized it. It appears someone just tacked it on in pencil. On his Pay Rate History on Oct. 26,2006 his pay is listed as $16.80 and there is no documentation or paper work supplied to show why a $2,080 yearly raise was authorized just two weeks after getting merit and a 75-cent raise. And worse,on April 11,2007 he was given a COLA raise of 3 percent on the salary of $16.80 to raise his salary to $17.30. Then on Oct. 1,2007 he was given yet another COLA raise of 4 percent to bring his salary to $18. Lots of raises without proper documentation. There is no paper work or documentation from Oct. 1,2007 to Oct. 10,2008,but on Oct. 10,2008 he received a COLA raise of 3 percent from $26.05 to $26.83. No explanation of how or when he got to the $26.05 salary.Then three months later on Jan. 20,2009 his salary jumped to $36.05. I firmly believe this deserves an independent firms audit. Especially the increase on Oct. 26,2006. I will furnish the names to the commissioners if they would like to explain all these raises to me. Now to the commissioners,I think it is great that they will meet just three times a month. Now they will waste time and money 25 percent less. About a year or so ago they attempted a Pygmalion effect of telling everyone how great Mr. (County Administrator Rick) Helms was. They were not Professor Higgins and Mr. Helms was not Eliza. They finally figured that out and rated him correctly but old Mr. Flip/Flop reversed his rating and kept him in the job. What a mistake. We have too many people who fit into the role of Peters Principle and it is costing the taxpayers millions of dollars. When is the last time we have had a major project that ended up at or under budget and on time? Where is the money going? Someone made a bundle on the Kenilworth property. Where is there justification for a merit raise with such bad and costly results? As far as I am concerned,all the commissioners can resign and we,the citizens and taxpayers,can survive without them wasting our money and stuffing it into their staff's pockets. I would like to hear from the senior citizens who are living on minimum wages so the select few bureaucrats can get richer by paying themselves more of the taxpayers money.

The mood was relaxed and celeb ratory. This is the largest crowd e ver of the three banquets weve had, Andy Tuck, school board member and coh ostof the event. His daughter, Kaylee Tuck, is a senior i n the program, a member of the first graduating class. Weve filled every seat, s aid a beaming Diane Juve, the parent whose leadership led to bringing IB to the c ounty. The fundraiser is necessary b ecause the IB program comes with fees attached for the districts registration, student testing materials and teacher training. These are p aid with the donated dollars. There are 15 students in the first graduating class. Of them five are going to the University of Florida; two are going to Florida State University; two are going to Southeastern University; and two are going to the University of South Florida. The remainder of the students are going to the University of Tampa, Florida Atlantic University, Florida International University and the New York University. Ilona Vega Jaramillo, director of business development for Enterprise Florida a state agency, spoke to the audience about the important role foreign investment will play in the future. Were helping to diversify the economy, Vega Jaramillo said, and bring in high quality jobs. We had a strong trade sector in 2011, she said, creating one in six jobs (in the state). Florida has the highest trade surplus of the states, she added and is the fourth largest exporter, after Texas, California and New York. International business is playing a major role in the future, and the future looks bright, Vega Jaramillo said, adding that a key is to build human connections. We Americans feel depressed today, she said. Foreigners, on the other hand, are full of optimism, positive energy and enthusiasm. Having multiple languages opens up trust, she said to the IB seniors. Keep learning, build your skills, you can make a difference.

Paul Neidhardt and repr esentatives from the Targets Management Office Brad Bledsoe and Chief Steve Moore talk about a newly restored U.S. Army OQ-19 target drone Thursday morning at the range. By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comAVON PARK Its the last step to a nearly perfect piece of military history and involved p arties are excited about it. The flying target drone that was found in the swampy waters in t he Avon Park Air Force Range 10 years ago now awaits its last piece of the restoration puzzle. The OQ-19 target drone was used during the Cold War, according to former Army pilots, for g unnery practice of crews on B-52s and B-47s. The rare piece of history was brought to the facility in 2009. Thursday morning, several gathered to get a peek of the last piece of the restoration for the drone. Target Management Office officials, i ncluding Logistics Management Specialist John Allen, traveled from Huntsville, Ala. to b ring the final two pieces. Those are JATOs (jet assisted take off) rockets. The two will be added to the sides of the drone, said retired Col. Bill Hutchinson. Hutchinson along with retired Col. Roy W hitton and Avon Park Air Force Range Commander Lt. Col. Paul Neidhardt were just a few of the eager minds behind keeping the drone in Avon Park. It took us over three years to find all the parts. Now we have to clean them (JATOs) up and get them mounted on the drone ... Its the last steps to complete, Hutchinson said. Other retired military members were present at the revealing of the JATOs and had a vivid memory of the drone when it was in use. I used to shoot at these drones, retired Major Randy Smith said. I knew that someone somewhere had to have these JATOs. Smith contacted several people before being lead to Allen, who eventually knew just where to look for the rockets. I didnt have them but I knew who did. They had been just sitting since 1996 so when I heard he (Smith) was looking for them I knew where to go, Allen said. The rockets are very rare items. According to Hutchinson and Allen, it took over a year to de-militarize the parts before handing them over for the drone. We needed to get the explosive parts off before we could use it, Hutchinson said. We have to do some research and see how they were attached. There is space here for what looks like they may have been bolted on to the sides ... We cant let just anyone get on here, we have to find the right person for the job, Hutchinson said. The (Fort) Moody boys deserve a lot of credit on this. They did a good job painting and cleaning it up, Whitton said. Drone gets last pieces to complete restoration

Continued from page 2A COMMUNITYBRIEFS By CURTANDERSON APLegal Affairs WriterMIAMI George Zimmerman persuaded the police not to charge him for killing unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, but the prosecutor has accused him of murder. Soon, armed with unparalleled legal advantages, Zimmerman will get to ask a judge to find the killing was justified, and if that doesnt work, hell get to make the same case to a jury. The wave of National Rifle Association-backed legislation that began seven years ago in Florida and continues to sweep the country has done more than establish citizensright to stand your ground, as supporters call the laws. Its added second, third and even fourth chances for people who have used lethal force to avoid prosecution and conviction using the same argument, extra opportunities to keep their freedom that defendants accused of other crimes dont get. Martins shooting has unleashed a nationwide debate on the validity of these laws, which exist in some form in most of the country and which prosecutors and police have generally opposed as confusing, prone to abuse by criminals, and difficult to apply evenly. Others are concerned that the laws foster a vigilante, even trigger-happy mentality that might cause too many unnecessary deaths. An Associated Press review of federal homicide data doesnt seem to bear that out. Nationwide, the total number of justified homicides by citizens rose from 176 in 2000 to 325 in 2010. T otals for all homicides also rose slightly over the same period, but when adjusted for population growth, the rates actually dipped. At least two-dozen states since 2005 have adopted laws similar to Floridas, which broadly eliminated a persons duty to retreat under threat of death or serious injury, as long as the person isnt committing a crime and is in a place where he or she has a right to be. Other states have had similar statutes on the books for decades, and still others grant citizens equivalent protections through established court rulings. While the states that have passed stand your ground laws continue to model them loosely after Floridas Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and New Hampshire put expanded laws on the books last year Florida is unique. One area that sets Florida apart is the next step Zimmerman faces: With the police and prosecutor having weighed in, a judge will decide whether to dismiss the second-degree murder charge based on stand your ground. If Zimmerman wins that stage, prosecutors can appeal. But in another aspect peculiar to Florida, if the appeals court sides with Zimmerman, not only will he be forever immune from facing criminal charges for shooting the 17year-old Martin even if new evidence or witnesses surface he could not even be sued for civil damages by Martins family for wrongfully causing his death. You get even more protection than any acquitted murderer, said Tamara Lawson, a former prosecutor who now teaches at St. Thomas School of Law in Miami. This law seems to give more protection than any other alleged criminal could dream about. If Zimmerman cant convince the judge of his innocence, he still can use stand your ground to convince jurors. Zimmerman, 28, is facing up to life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder for shooting Martin on Feb. 26. Aneighborhood watch volunteer in the central Florida town of Sanford, he said he fired his 9 mm handgun after Martin attacked and beat him. Law gives Zimmerman extra chances in legal fight MCT George Zimmerman is led into court in Sanford Thursday for a hearing on his second degree murder charge. MIAMI (AP) AMiami city commissioner has created a small park to prevent more sexual offenders from setting up camp in the area. City Commissioner Marc Sarnoff learned about the small patch of vacant land now called the Little River Pocket Park from homeowners concerned about a dozen sexual offenders who spend their nights on a nearby sidewalk. County and state law prohibits sex offenders from living near parks where children gather, though city officials say the state allows sex offenders already living somewhere to stay if a park is created after they move in. Sarnoff tells The Miami Herald that he created the park to prevent more sex offenders from being placed in the area. At Sarnoffs request, the city has notified corrections officials about the parks existence.

There are 54 beautiful internationally known historic outdoor murals, with hidden items for the visitor to find, and some murals have sound. Seventeen one-of-akind whimsical trash containers, all companion pieces to the murals, May wrote. Our American Clown Museum and School is filled with clown memorabilia that will take you back in time to those wonderful days at the circus. Over 2,000 clowns graduated from the clown school since 1993, according to May. It is not unusual to find clowns walk our streets, entertaining our guests and spreading smiles, May wrote. May went on to describe the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative a 10,000 square foot building filled with the finest arts and crafts Highlands County has to offer. There is something for everyone, May continued. The description on the Readers Digest site also points out that Lake Placid is rich in history. Dr. Melvil Dewey, of Dewey Decimal System fame, came to Lake Stearns 85 years ago this year and named the Lake Placid after his Lake Placid Club in Lake Placid, N.Y. Our Historic Society in the old train depot that Dewey had built is filled with his history and much more. Some of the best wood carvers anywhere can be seen working at the Lake Placid Art League on certain days of the week. We are the Caladium Capital of the World, where in 1,200 acres of rich black lake bottom muck, about 95 percent of the worlds caladiums are grown, May wrote.

Im noting to vote for anything else because I think this could have been resolved over a year ago. I found an answer to how to fix this in two phone calls. I dont think we should have made a big fuss over this, Worley stressed. I am making a stand. This issue is near and dear to me because in the spirit of departmental accountability my whole effort to push accountability is because I have to approve the financials for the town. I cant do that unless I have visibility, Councilman Steve Bastardi said. Bastardi described how he is also having issues with reading the reports and that when he had to pursue issues, it was hard to clarify each item consistently. But to me, budget accountability is to let the people who do the budget tell us what is really wrong and bring it forward so we dont have to dive so deep into the financials, Bastardi said. I understand Counc il Member Worleys interest to having electronic access to the numbers, Bastardi said. I salute Council member W orleys interest to having access to the information, but I still support the staff to bring information forward, Bastardi said.

Despite the short duration of her presence on the high seas just five days or the century thats passed since her sinking,the RMS Titanic made an indelible impression. The tragedy caused more than 1,500 deaths and inspired films,books,museums and other representations that have kept the legacy of the ship alive since her sinking on April 15,1912. The sinkings centennial has sparked a lot of plans for commemoration,including two anniversary cruises to the site where the ship sank 100 years prior,a 3-D re-release of James Camerons 1997 feature film Titanicand a re-enactment of the voyage on Twitter,among other events. Samantha Stone,McClatchy-Tribune SET SAILFor truly die-hard Titanic buffs or those who just want to experience her legacy firsthand,Miles Morgan Travel offered two chances to sail through history and visit the site where the Titanic sank 100 years ago. One cruise sails out of Southampton, U.K.,on April 8,and the other from New York on April 10. Miles Morgan,the travel companys owner,said the idea for an anniversary cruise came from a gentleman who was visiting one of their travel shops five years ago, and from then on Morgan couldnt get the thought out of his head. The more I thought about it, the more excited I became,so I discussed the idea with colleagues in the travel business as well as with friends,and decided to do it,Morgan said. The project began about five years ago,and tickets for the trip originally sold out more than 16 months before the ships were set to leave port. Morgan said there are a number of reasons so many people booked a ticket for this cruise. For many,it is being a part,and taking part,in such a memorable piece of history,Morgan said. Some of these people are looking forward to tasting the meals from that time or even dressing up in period costume to enhance the experience,while others are lifelong Titanic enthusiasts who have devoted a major part of their lives to studying this great ship and the events that surrounded it. Almost 1,200 people of 30 different nationalities signed up for the voyage the largest group from the United Kingdom. Due to cancellations there currently are some tickets available, so act fast if you want a feel for the Titanic experience.

C M Y K Dear Abby: Im confused about the protocol in thanking or repaying someone after staying several nights at their home. My feeling is, if youre staying with people,the nicest way to thank them for their hospitality is to pay for most,if not all, the lunches and dinners you share with them when you dine out. That way,you lessen the monetary burden of your visit,and it gives you a chance to say thank youfor the use of their home. Some visitors seem to think that when they come to your home,you should not only put them up,but also pay for all their activities while you show them your town. What is correct? Or is it a matter of preference? Visiting from Phoenix Dear Visiting: According to Emily Post,when a guest stays overnight,a nice bottle of wine would be a proper gift if you know your hosts drink and their preference. If there are children in the household,a game they can all enjoy or candy might be nice. If you will be staying longer,she suggests a picture frame with a photo taken during your visit sent afterward,a houseplant in a decorative pot,hand towels or beach towels. And I agree with you that treating your host(s) to a nice dinner during your visit would be gracious and thoughtful. Dear Abby: One of my best supervisors is in a same-sex relationship. She and her partner are raising three wonderful children from previous marriages. I have introduced them to my husband at the office as well as work-related social events. He says he hates them because he believes their relationship broke up their marriages and its wrong to raise their children this way. When he encounters them he refuses to acknowledge them and will snarl when near them. Neither of them have done anything to deserve this treatment,and it makes me embarrassed and ashamed of him. Ive tried to reason with him nothing works. I told him flat out he can have his opinions,but I expect him to treat them with respect. Im to the point where I have to attend work-related functions alone and not allow him to come to my office. That's one solution, but Im still upset about his attitude in general. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Upset in Texas Dear Upset: I suspect that your husbands reason for hatingyour supervisor has less to do with the fact that she and her partner ended their marriages,and more to do with knee-jerk homophobia. Children who are raised in happy homes do better than those who are raised in a household filled with unresolved tension. I cant change your husbands attitude,and neither can you. Only he can do that,but enlightenment isnt likely to be achieved until he recognizes a need for it. P.S. His manners are atrocious,and youre right to keep him apart from your work environment. Dear Abby: Due to a health problem that caused some of my hair to break and fall out,I have recently begun wearing a wig. At a social function a woman who was not a friend of mine approached me and asked if I was wearing a hairpiece. How could I respond to such a rude question without admitting that I am wearing a wig? Stumped in Pennsylvania Dear Stumped: Try this: Ill forgive you for asking that question if youll forgive me for not answering. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren.

My response to this question was instantaneous: mountains surrounding me; crisp mountain air; the scent of freshness that invades my senses; pristine views untouched by man; wildflowers; singing brooks and streams; waterfalls. These and more make me feel alive and close to him. My minds eye also saw the seasons:the vibrant tapestry of fall and the winter white garment draping the landscape. Even more intricate are the shapes,sizes and colors of every leaf and the unique snowflakes that combine to create winters garment. But hidden in the fallen leaves that mulch the earth; and,snuggled under a snowy blanket are seedsdead and b uriedyet with life waiting to blossom. The nourishing mulch and protective cover of snow remind us of how God cares for his creation. Before we know it,spring is in the air. Crocuses push up through remnants of snow,tiny buds appear on trees and open to small chartreuse leaves that will grow and intensify in color as each day of spring gives way to another. The air is filled with birdsong and the activity of nest b uilding. Promise and hope are evident. Each morning sunrise, evening sunset,the stars and moon that light the night sky all silently and majestically give evidence to Gods being. God is the Ultimate Scientist and has given man the intelligence and hunger for discovery. What has been discovered and is continually being uncovered has always been theredesigned by the Creator who sustains it all. In his time and not before,he opens mans mind and allows new tools to be developed that unlock more mysteries.But,without faith in God,we miss the depth and breadth of the complexities of our world and our bodies. We try to e xplain them away. And,to think God spoke it all into existence. He didnt need matter to create. Hebrews 11:3,NKJV,puts it this way,By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God,so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. W eve been watching as small geraniums in flower boxes around our patio and white alyssum and tiny violas in another pot have grown. Daily they lift their eyesheavenward to receive the refreshing and nourishing rain and sunshine needed to bloom beautifully where theyre planted. Lets lift our eyes to the Lord of heaven and earth for he is our promise and hope to bloom in all of lifes seasons. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent.

C M Y K By CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie CriticA little nyuk-nyuk-nyuk goes a long way in The Three Stooges,Peter and Bobby Farrellys featurelength homage to the classic s lapstick comedy trio. The Farrelly brothers have wanted to make this movie for years,and for the most part they didnt try to inflict t heir signature gross-out sensibility upon known and revered source material. Yes, there is a scene in which Moe,Larry and Curly get into a urine fight by pointing n aked newborns at each other in a maternity ward. A nd Curly does pass some major gas,but its actually relevant from a plot perspect ive. As directors and writers ( with screenplay help from their boyhood friend Mike Cerrone),the Farrellys have shown surprising restraint. Their Three Stoogesis s weeter than you might expect,and its certainly m ore tolerable than their last movie,the crass Hall Pass from last year. But its hard to imagine who the film is for today b eyond hardcore fans of the original shorts and 10-yearold boys who double over g iggling at the sight of grown men doubling over in pain. Despite its brisk pace a nd brief running time and even with its episodic struct ure the film is broken up into three individual episodes with a through line that unites them The Three Stoogesgrows very o ld,very quickly. There are a few cute ideas, though,and some clever casting choices. Every once in a while a pun is good for a chuckle. But the headbonking and the eye-poking, t he face-slapping and the finger-snapping and the cons tant clang of sound effects are too much to bear over an extended period of time. If anything,the Farrellys Three Stoogesmight make y ou want to go back and revisit the original threesome in short doses for a reminder of how influential their brand of comedy has become. These adventures take place in the present day, though,as Larry (Will & Gracestar Sean Hayes in a wild wig),Moe (Chris Diamantopoulos of and The Kennedys) and Curly (Will Sasso of MADtv) are still living at the orphanage where they were dumped as infants,despite the fact that theyre now grown men in their mid-30s. That is one amusing gag:As time passes,different actors play the threesome at various ages, but the nuns who raised them stay exactly the same. And these three actors are doing nearly dead-on impressions of Larry Fine and Moe and Curly Howard, rather than going in a knowing,post-modern direction with the characters. Jane Lynch,in a departure from her famous snark,plays the kindly Mother Superior; Larry David is a sight to behold as her sidekick,the cranky Sister Mary-Mengele (shes essentially Larry David in a nuns habit). One day they inform the Stooges and the other orphans that their home will be shut down if they cant come up with $830,000 in the next month. And so our intrepid (and naive) trio ventures out into the big,wide world,a place theyve never seen before,to try and raise the money. Fish-out-of-water antics, some hurt feelings and massive bodily injuries ensue. (The Farrellys did this better back in 1996 with Randy Quaid as an innocent,Amish bowling prodigy who goes ona cross-country tour in Kingpin.) They get mixed up with a f emme fatale (Sofia Vergara) who hires them to kill her rich husband so that she can run away with her lover; naturally,this does not go nearly as planned. (On a side note:It would be nice to see Vergara play a character besides a saucy temptress once in a while.) Attempts at contemporizing the Stooges are hit-andmiss the reality show they stumble onto is just cringe-inducingly awkward but theyre soitenly never mean. And thats sayinsomethin. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, April 15, 2012Page 3B DR.

Stooges one long poke in the eye Movie Review The Three Stooges Rating: R (slapstick action violence and some rude and suggestive humor including language) Running time: 91 minutes Review: (of 4) By DAVID BAUDER AP Television WriterNEW YORK Correspondent Natalie Morales ended up in tears when she put herself and her 8-year-old son through the same parenting test that Dateline NBCis subjecting others to for a series that starts Sunday. Using hidden cameras and actors,the network set up scenarios to see if kids really follow their parents instructions to avoid strangers,dont get into a car with a drunk driver or dont cheat. The results will probably depress you. Time and again,children gave their names and addresses to a stranger who had taken their picture and talked about putting them on TV. Promised free ice cream,they climbed into a van driven by an actor who could easily close the door on them and speed a way. Parents watched it all on monitors nearby. I would have lost my money if I put a bet on it, one cringing parent said after watching a youngster climb into a car with an actor pretending to be drunk behind the wheel. For four consecutive Sunday nights,Dateline NBCwill show the scenarios,which also test whether kids would cheat or discriminate if given the opportunity. NBC hopes parents and children watch the programs together and discuss them,said Liz Cole, executive producer of Dateline. Four mothers who work at Datelinecame up with the idea,an outgrowth of a show on bullying that aired last year. Not newsin the strict sense,these types of shows tend to do well for newsmagazines:ABCs What Would You Do series on Primetime, which sets up various social experiments,is particularly popular among younger viewers,which news shows have trouble reaching. Its reality TV at its best,Morales said, because these are truly teachable moments. During the special on driving,several teenagers swear to their parents that they never text or talk on their cellphones when behind the wheel. Their cars were equipped with cameras for a few months,and e ven though they knew they were being watched,most youngsters exhibited the behavior they said they would never do. The teens were also set up with actors who pretended to be drunk or high on drugs. Despite the doubt on many faces,most let the actor grab the keys and get behind the wheel. Its the power of peer pressure; too many youngsters go along with the crowd unless someone is strong enough to take a stand. In the Datelineepisode,a girl whose uncle was killed in a drunk driving accident was the strong one. Parents need to be persistent and specific with their instructions,the Datelineexperts said,and be mindful of their own behavior. Dateline series puts parental maxims to test By PAUL DERGARABEDIAN F or The Associated PressLOS ANGELES Lionsgates The Hunger Gameshas topped the domestic box office chart each day since its release and audiences will continue to pay their tribute,putting another $20 million in its quiver for a fourth consecutive weekend win. A 24-day total of over $335 million going into the weekend will already place the film in the Top 25 alltime performers at the North American box office. Second place with a gross in the low teens should go to the well-reviewed,R-rated horror entry The Cabin in the Woods.The muchbuzzed-about Lionsgate release features a screenplay co-written by Joss Whedon that puts an inventive twist on the fright genre. Also nyuking for a spot in the top three is Foxs updated spin on The Three Stooges, with an expected take of more than $10 million. Directed by the Farrelly brothers,the beloved goofball trio of Larry,Moe and Curly bring their particular brand of slapstick to a modern setting. Universals R-rated American Reunionheads into its second weekend with around $30 million and the potential for another $10 million in the retirement fund. Paramounts 3-D treatment of the 1997 romantic adventure Titanicshould add just under $10 million to its overall domestic total of more that $622 million. Expected to debut outside of the top five with $6 million-plus is Film Districts PG-13 action thriller Lockout. Box Office Preview: Hunger going for 4

Tickets are $20 for members; $25 for non-members; and $5 students. Tickets can be purchased at the Lake W ales Arts Center,9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.,Monday Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Rock fans can enjoy their favorite Queen hits when One Night of Queen with Gary Mullen a nd The Works takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. on Monday,April 23,in the SFCC Theatre for the Performing Arts. In 2002,Gary Mullens career as Freddie Mercury began,and One Night of Queen was formed along with his band The Works. S ince then,One Night of Queen has gone from strength to strength and is o neof the hardest working bands in the land. For the last five years,it has cons istently performed over 150 shows each year all a round the world. Fans of Queen will enjoy such mega-hits as Bohemian R hapsody,We are the Champions,Killer Q ueen,Youre My Best Friend,Crazy Little Thing Called Love,Radio Ga Ga,Under Pressure, Another One Bites the D ust,and many others. Widely known as the m ost in demand Queen tribute group,this large scale production is complete with a world-class vocalist, musicians,sound,and lighti ng. Queens Freddie Mercury was one of rocks essential f ront men,thrilling crowds with his flamboyant stage persona and that staggering four-octave range. There are very few people out t here that have the range that Freddie had to go from low to high and just the power that he had but also the softness and the p urity of tone,Mullen said. Ashe grew into his late teens,Mullen began fronting bands and often heard the words,You sound like Freddie Mercury,but didnt think too much about it until the year 2000 when he won the most votes ever on Stars in Their Eyes,a British reality show on which contestants impersonate their favorite stars. He,of course,impersonated Mercury,singing A Kind of Magic. In 2002,Mullen assembled The Works,his backing band,around guitarist David Brockett. Mullen worked on becoming Mercury onstage. I guess from watching Freddie over the years,I had subconsciously picked up a few of the moves. But when I started actually going out and people started paying money to come see me,I thought,I really need to actually look a bit harder and see what he actually doesbecause Queen fans are very true to the memory of Freddie. Queen fans can see that Mullen and the Works approach that legacy with nothing but respect. People get what we do because its done with passion,he said. Its done with care and consideration to the memory of Freddie Im paying tribute. Freddie was my hero. This performance is sponsored by Dr. Cary Pigman,The Seaton Group/Merrill Lynch,and Florida Hospital Heartland Leadership Institute. Tickets range from $20 to $30 and may be purchased online at http://performances.southflorida.edu or by calling the SFCC Box Office at (863) 784-7178.

Such day-and-date releases have become i ncreasingly common in recent years for smaller independent films. But this will be the first such U.S. film to stream concurrently on the social media behemoth while opening in theaters. The film,directed by Kevin Macdonald, will be available for a $6.99 rental beginning April 20th. A portion of the proceeds from Facebook sales will benefit Save the Children,the charity for needy children. Marleyis also being released via videoon-demand on April 20th. F acebook began hosting movie rentals in March 2011. Digital delivery of new releases and older films has been a highly competitive frontier,particularly among Google Inc.s YouTube,Apple Inc.s iTunes and subscription service Netflix.

C M Y K www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, April 15, 2012Page 7B By JOSEPH PISANI AP Business WriterNEW YORK Hollywood wants your money. From The Hunger Gamesto The Avengersto The Dark Knight Rises,studios are rolling out big draws this year to get more people into theater seats. But catching a movie several times a year is e xpensive. The average movie ticket price in 2011 rose to $7.93 from $7.89 the year before,according to the National Association of Theatre O wners. But in many parts of the country,like New York,Los Angeles and Chicago,ticket prices can hover above $10. And youll pay several dollars more for a 3-D movie. Adda bag of buttered popcorn and a soda,and one person can s pend over $20. A family could spend $80 or more enough to buy a Blu-Ray player and rent a movie t o watch on it. But if theres a film you dont want to miss at the theater,here are some ways to cut costs: Get social. Follow movie theater companies on Twitter or like them on Facebook. They often post coupons or hold contests on their pages,says Regina Novickis,a savings expert for coupon website PromotionalCodes.com. F ollow the three biggest movie theater chains:AMC Theatres, Cinemark and Regal Cinemas. Chances are one of those companies has a theater near you. AMC Theatres recently posted a coupon on its Facebook page for a free soda when you buy a ticket to Titanic 3Dand something else at the concession stand. Regal and Cinemark post concession stand coupons on their Facebook pages every week. Theyre a must when a small soda and popcorn can run about $8. Movie theaters make huge profits from concession stands. (And weve HEARD some people sneak in their own snacks,but you didnt hear it from us.) Buy someone elses gift card. PlasticJungle.com and Cardpool.com sell unwanted gift cards,including ones for movie theaters. Some are going for as much as 15 percent off their face value. You can also try bidding for them at auction website eBay.com. Monitor daily deal sites. Movie theater companies and online ticket sellers periodically sell discounted tickets through daily deal websites such as Groupon.com and LivingSocial.com. In February, AMC Theaters offered two tickets for $12 on Groupon. Bulk up. If youre a member, warehouse club stores sell bundles of tickets that can cost less than what you would pay at the theater. BJs is selling 4 tickets and a voucher for a small popcorn at AMC Theatres for $34.99. Subtracting the $4 for the popcorn,that comes to about $7.75 a ticket. Cinemark sells a similar package at Costco. Swipe smarter. Check to see if your credit card has any movie theater perks,suggests Mary Hunt, author of Money Rules for Life. Chase Freedom and Discover are offering 5 percent cash back from April to June for purchases at movie theaters if you sign up for it. V isa Signature cardholders can get $5 off $25 worth of Fandango gift certificates at fandango.com/visasignature. Keep in mind that Fandango does charge a convenience charge between 75 cents to $1.50 per ticket depending on where you live. Its as much as $2 if youre watching it in a large IMAX screen. Hunt also says that some credit cards may let you use points youve acquired to buy tickets or movie theater gift cards,so check if that is an option. Research discount days or times. Find out if your local theater offers discounts for students,seniors,military or special matinee pricing,recommends Erin Chase,a deal expert at coupon website Savings.com. AMC Theatres,for example,offers discounted tickets before noon at all its locations. Wait it out. Find a theater in your area that features movies that have been out for a few weeks, says Hunt. Youll have to wait a few weeks after a movie debuts to make it to these types of theaters,but they are cheaper. In some parts of the country,some of these theaters sell tickets for as little as a $1. Go old school. Hunt suggests trying a drive-in theater. Many are cheaper than a traditional theater. Find a drive-in near you at Driveins.com. The website says there are about 372 drive-ins operating nationwide.

C M Y K There are 113 lakes in Highlands County. Access to some of these lakes makes recreational activities like fishing and skiing possible. The Highlands County Parks & R ecreation crew is responsible for the design,installat ion and upkeep of 37 boat ramps scattered across the county. They also help out w ith the various parks, sports complexes and natural a reas by working hand in hand with the groundskeepers and other departments to make sure everything is in top shape. Ron McClure,Parks and Maintenance supervisor,is p roud of his crew. He had plenty to say on the subject of how they handle tough p rojects. When they get here in the m orning they are already brainstorming about what they are going to do and how t hey are going to get it done. Its a joy to have a challenge. I look forward to seei ng them every day; its nice listening to them talking and f iguring things out. Ron described his office as a think tank.He stated, They put all their ideas together and figure out w hich one will work. They always come up with something.The projects that Ron,Steve Becker,Rex Caddell and Guy Culp are involved in are diverse and often times challenging. They have been involved in constructing buildings,picnic tables,garbage containers and any other item that needs to be made. They install underground utilities, boat ramps,docks and parking areas. They have renovated buildings,repaired lights,sidewalks,restrooms and anything else that may require attention. This crew has a way of looking at things and formulating ideas to make them work better and safety is always number one priority. They look at a job from an angle of how it will affect the people that will benefit from it. For example,the Boggy Branch boat ramp. This is where everybody goes. The big problem was the road. People would park their cars and they would go into the ditch. They had to call a tow truck to get them out. So we piped the 125foot ditch and filled over the top. That gave us seven parking spaces with trailer area. Then we put sod down. We also put in a new ramp and two parking spots on the west side,said Ron. Lake Olivia is another great example. Were going to sweeten this all up and try to make the whole place look better, whatever needs to be done. We like to make everything look nice. Well fix the erosion and everything while were here.A job that originally consisted of installing a new boat ramp and building a new dock became a total site renovation when they arrived. We built and installed a new picnic table. Kids were fishing on that dock and it wasnt in a good place,so we decided to put it where it made more sense and weve made the ramp handicap accessible. We do our own surveying. Rex is on the survey crew. While Steve was operating the backhoe,Rex was telling him the areas that needed to be dug out. Equipped with a device that he designed and made,Rex measured the depth of the water while floating in a one-man raft. It can be used asa paddle to get me where I need to go and a gauge to measure,stated Ron. When Rex measured an area that was uneven,he would signal Steve to dig there. The raft is also great for inspecting the docks and other structures in the water. At Dinner Lake,the crew made a turn around for vehicles with boat trailers to be able to back onto the ramp. We made parking areas, fixed the drainage problems and widened the ramp. There was so much erosion here that we put fill in on the sides of the road and built it up. We made the ramp wider and put slanted sides on it to help with runoff. We also made a slight V in the ramp for better drainage. Each ramp is a custom fit and the crew makes sure that when they install it,they are thinking ahead for any issues that may come up. Locals help out by talking to the crew and letting them know which boat ramps need f ixing the most. We listen to the local fishermen; they let us know where the worst ones are. It helps us prioritize. We dont want people tearing up their trailers and equipment by trying to launch on a bad ramp,stated Rex. From that word of mouth and their own inspections,the crew continually works on prioritizing all the ramps and getting them in shape. Highlands County is indeed fortunate to have such professionals on the job. Ron is a state certified general contractor. Rex,a residential contractor,Steve and Guy all have vast knowledge and experience not only in carpentry,but most any job that comes up. Ron says he is blessedto have such a crew. He stated,They are hard workers. They look forward to coming in and all of them have good self-esteem. They are proud of their work yet still remain humble. The best things you do are the ones that no one knows about. Corine Burgess is and Environmental Specialist for the Highlands County Parks and Natural Resources Department.

Many people hold onto mounds of receipts and account statements because they're not sure when its safe to toss them. (By toss,I mean shred dont give identity thieves any ammunition.) Heres when you wouldnt want to lack proper documentation: If audited by the IRS you must be able to justify deductions,charitable contributions,income,etc. Track stock and fund transactions so when you sell you'll only be taxed on profits above the purchase amount; also to justify claiming a loss on your taxes. Toclaim tax credits/deductions for home improvements,such as energy-efficiency upgrades or for medical reasons. If you make nondeductible (after-tax) contributions to an IRA or 401(k),to prove youve already paid taxes on the amount. Your heirs will need your financial documents to settle your estate. The IRS has several periods of limitations during which you can be asked to produce records proving income, deductions or credits you claimed: Normally,they have up to three years after your tax return to request documentation. However,if you failed to report income that is more than 25 percent of the gross income on your return,they have six years. If you file a claim for losses from worthless securities,its seven years. If you dont file a return or file a fraudulent return, there is no statute of limitations. So,you should probably hold onto back-up documentation for seven years,to be safe. These records include: W-2 and 1099 income forms. Year-end bank and brokerage statements showing interest earned. Receipts,cancelled checks or other proof of payment for deducted expenses.

Toss monthly and quarterly loan statements after receiving year-end summaries,but always retain final payoff notices in case the loan erroneously goes into collection and you need proof.

But if your goal is to reduce paper clutter,scan copies and save as PDF files. Back up electronic soft copies on an encrypted flash drive or external hard drive in case your computer crashes. And, if youre worried about fire, theft or other disasters,store additional copies in a safety deposit box or with a trusted friend. Recordkeeping is no fun, but compared to tearing the house apart to prepare for an audit,its a small price to pay. Jason Alderman directs Visas financial education programs.

My passion is hair and I m good with cuts and colors. Ive been blessed by God with this talent and I use it to do good. I love to serve and I love to see the smiles on peop les face when they leave this salon. Everyone comes in beautiful,but they leave with a big smile and looking even more beautiful,said L ockhart. The inspiration behind L ockharts new business ventures came from one of H ighlands Countys well known businessmen. Alan Jay (Wildstein) inspired me to do this. He has been so helpful through this w hole entire process. He calls all the time to check and see how Im doing and if I need anything,said Lockhart. W ildstein and Lockhart were aquatinted through a mutual friend. According to Lockhart,when the friend mentioned Lockharts new b usiness ventures to Wildstein he approached her with business insight. During the Easter Grand Opening Celebration, Wildstein received an appreciation award for his input and support of Lockharts businesses. Whenever God gives you a vision you dont just sit on it,you move. You go for it and you move in it. I have employees Ive taken on,so I want to succeed. Its not about me. I have to keep expectations high so they can succeed. They are expecting it,so Ive got to make it, said Lockhart. UR Salon hours are from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.The salon is closed Sunday and Monday. Walk-ins or appointments are accepted.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING The seventh annual Celebrate Junior Achievement Breakfast at C hateau lan Hotel on March 22 was an unforgettable prese ntation of the extraordinary work of Junior Achievement in Highlands County. Guests were inspired by JAs mission and moved by the outstanding speakers, generously contributing $21,810 in donations and p ledges to the economic education program benefitting students in Highlands County Schools from kindergarten through 12th grade. Master of Ceremony and Junior Achievement chairm an Scott Crutchfield presented Superintendant Wally C ox,founding board member of Junior Achievement in Highlands County,the Junior Achievement USAs Bronze Leadership Award. The n ational award is given to the top half percentile of JA volunteers in the United States. Crutchfield said, Superintendent Coxs leade rship is instrumental in the growth of the Junior Achievement program in Highlands County. The School Board along with school administrators are among Junior Achievements most important partners. Superintendent Wally Cox is a remarkable example of that spirit of excellence in leadership. Executive Director of Junior Achievement in Highlands and Polk Counties Lily Romine shared,One of the major advantages Highlands County has over all of the other Junior Achievement programs across our nation is the strong support we receive from the three chambers of commerce. The chamber executive directors recruit JA team leaders who coordinate our high school and middle school programs with the classroom teachers. Each semester the JA team leaders recruit and train the classroom volunteers,as well as recruit interviewers for the Success Skills mock interviews. In our elementary schools the PTOs recruit their own volunteers from their studentsfamily members and business partners. Thanks to the tremendous support from the community, last school year 1,696 students were inspired by their Junior Achievement volunteers in 84 classrooms! Junior Achievement Educator of the Year Paula Gainous is an outstanding teacher who encourages her students to plan for their futures as she partners with her JA volunteers to prepare them in the present. Gainous shared with the guests, Many of the Junior Achievement volunteers were my students when they attend Lake Placid Middle School. By teaching Junior Achievement lessons to my students,they have come full circle. It is most rewarding to see them give back to their community,inspiring students to value their education! Junior Achievement Volunteer of the Year Elizabeth Morris highlighted on the importance of the JA program in our schools. The value of Junior Achievement is immense. It focuses on teaching our youth to make good choices and how to take a few moments and think hard about their future. The best part about it is how fun it is. The whole class benefits ... When students are engaged and involved the whole school feels the positive waves. This program certainly enriches any school curriculum.In a very real way, Morris directly contributes to the hopes and dreams of Highlands County area students. Junior Achievement Student Scholarship Winner and graduate from Avon Park High School Kiri Crommett was the keynote speaker. Kiri,who currently attends South Florida Community College,shared with the guests,Junior Achievement taught us how to write a resume,prepared us for job interviews and how to deal with people in a variety of different work scenarios. I wish all of my co-workers had Junior Achievement and took the lessons to heart like I did. Imagine how nice work would be. I appreciate every bit of help that I get along the way,whether it be money or even more valuable advice. Thank you Junior Achievement and to all of you who have made that possible. As Kiri thanked her mother,grandmother,teacher Cynthia Barrett,and Junior Achievement volunteer,Tori Trinder,she placed leis around their necks and gave them each a hug. Then she thanked the breakfast guests and donors for supporting Junior Achievement. Junior Achievement is the worlds largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success,plan for their future,and make smart academic and economic choices. JA programs are delivered by corporate and community volunteers and provide relevant,hands-on experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school knowledge and skills in financial literacy,work readiness and entrepreneurship. Today,JA reaches four million students per year in more than 120 markets across the United States,with an additional six million students served by operations in 119 other countries worldwide. Visit www.ja.org for more information.

News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Red Devil Steven Roberts flies down the home stretch of the 300-meter hurdles. Roberts would take second at Thursdays District 8-2A meet to qualify for regionals in the event. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID The District 10-4Astandings got their final shakeup Friday night, with Frostproof nabbing the top seed by topping Mulberry 5-1, and Lake Placid grabbing third with a 4-0 win over visiting DeSoto. The Dragons went with Heath Harris on the hill against the Bulldogs and, as usual, he was economical with his pitches. He throws strikes and thats going to keep your pitch count down, head coach Dan Coomes said of Harrismere 74 pitches over seven innings of work. Tonight he was throwing all his pitches fastball, change-up, curve for strikes. Though DeSoto did start things off with a bit of a threat as Xavier Payne sent a one-out single to right in the first and Devyn Steele reached on an error that put runners on second and third. But a pop-fly that Ricky Miller corralled in short center and a grounder to third got Lake Placid out of the jam and the Dragons would soon take a lead they would never relinquish. Nevada Weaver shot a oneout single up the middle in the bottom of the opening inning, stole second and moved to third on Tyler Carrs infield single. And during Josh Monteros at bat, Bulldog starter Garrett Anderson uncorked a wild pitch that allowed Weaver to score for a 1-0 lead. Harris worked a one, two, three second and the offense tacked on another run. Jacob Cram sent a chopper to third with one out, and on a bang-bang play at first, the throw got away, sending Cram scampering to second. Laine Daum reached on another error, one out later, moving Cram to third, and a passed ball brought home the second Dragon run of the night. Afly to left and two ground-outs to third made for a quick top of the third, before another run was added in the bottom. Weaver lead off with a walk and, after a strike out, stole second and moved to third on a ground out. Dragons top DeSoto, grab third Lake Placid4DeSoto0 See LP, Page 3D By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comFROSTPROOF Ten different events will be represented at the Region 3-2A meet in Titusville Thursday, A pril 19, beginning at Noon. Thats because eight Highlands County athletes performed well enough at Thursdays District 8-2A meet in Frostproof to stamp their ticket to regional competition. Four Green Dragons fini shed among the top four in their events, as did four Red Devils, to continue their track and field seasons at least a little longer. The meet, which saw eight teams represented, with nearby and familiar names such as host Frostproof, Lake W ales, Tenoroc and Mulberry, also included two New Port Richey schools, Ridgewood and Gulf. And among the dozens upon dozens of athletes aspiring to reach the next level, the mid afternoon sun could not have made it any more heated. Starting in the short distances, Avon Parks Lacy Turner came out of the 100meter dash prelims with the fourth fastest time, with Shavarious Wooden also making it to the finals with the sixth fastest. But with just the top four from the finals moving on, Turner was going to have to hold his spot and Wooden would need to shave some time. Both did just that, with Track and Field sends eight to Regional See TRACK, Page 4D MCTphoto Omar Infante is greeted at the dugout after he scored in the third inning against the Houston Astros at Marlins Park Friday, as the team hopes winning baseball will bring fans back after the Ozzie Guillen incident. By STEVEN WINE Associated PressMIAMI Havana-born Isabel Diaz arrived at the Miami Marlinsballpark two hours before the first pitch Friday, ready to root for the home team but not quite prepared to forget Ozzie Guillens remarks about Fidel Castro. Im here to support the players, Diaz said, and to support all the workers at the stadium who are not at fault for what one ignorant person said. For the first time since the furor enveloping their manager began, the Marlins took the field in their new ballpark in Little Havana, opening a six-game homestand against Houston. Miami won 5-4 in 11 innings. Arriving fans were greeted with salsa music and samples of mango smoothies. There was no sign of any group demonstrations, but some fans may have protested simply by staying away. The 36,442-seat ballpark was about two-thirds full, and announced attendance was 30,169. One spectator waved a sign that read, I hate Fidel but I love the Marlins. Other fans came reluctantly, still angry that Guillen had said he loved and admired Castro. Nancy Azcuy, who came to the United States from Cuba 43 years ago, said shell give up her season tickets if Guillen is back as manager next season. He earns a lot of money to be talking so much trash, she said. Apublic figure has to think about what he says. Among those absent from the ballpark was Guillen, serving a five-game suspension for his remarks. He offered an emotional apology at a news conference Tuesday, but some local leaders, Cuban Americans and even Marlins fans thought he should have been fired. One was Lazaro Diaz, a lone protester standing outside the ballpark shortly before the game. He drove three hours from his home in Fort Myers with his teenage son to express his frustration over Guillens comments. I came here to express that I am against him and that they need to kick him out, Diaz said. He has every right to the freedom of speech, but he shouldnt have said what he did to this community. Diaz, who wore a T-shirt that read, Cuba, Si. Castro, No, said two of his uncles were executed in the early years of the revolution. Edwin Rojas and his 10year-old son sold shirts that said, Cuba, Si! Ozzie, No! Marlins Forever. Rojas, a season-ticket holder, said he would keep attending games but understood why people were upset. I can definitely sympathize with what my parents went through and what this means to them, he said. The new retractable roof was closed because of drizzly weather, but even with protection from the conditions, empty seats Friday might not be a fair gauge of any lingering animosity. The Astros arent a big draw, and it was a busy night on the Miami sports calendar. The Heat and Florida Panthers both had home games, with the hockey team playing its first postseason game in 12 years. On the other hand, it was Modest crowd for Marlins game after Ozzie flap See MARLINS, Page 3D By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe final regular season game on the district schedule gave Sebring the chance to open things up a bit in Fridays 9-1 win at Lake Gibson. The Blue Streaks had, after all, sewn up the districts top seed with Tuesdays win at Winter Haven, so the stakes were lessened. And so it was that 15 players had plate appearances, while the only one that didnt, Landon Willey, got on base as a designated runner and scored. The community feel extended to the pitching staff, where head coach Buck Rapp assuredly wanted to keep arms loose and sharp, yet not overworked. Four pitchers worked through the contest, with Jordan Baker, C.J. Payne and Garrett Martinez each getting two innings of work, with Kyle Cunningham getting one. The Fighting Braves managed just two hits against the quartet of hurlers, though they did string together a walk and hit batter, along with productive outs, to plate their lone run in the third. Which, at that time, tied the game, after Sebring had scratched for one in the opening inning. But when the Streaks had the chance to answer back, they did. Two runs came across in the fourth and six more in the fifth to put the Blue Streak stamp on their latest win. Nate Greene and Gus Garcia each had two hits, with Greene blasting two doubles and collecting two RBI. Gunnar Westergom also drove in two and added a double. Having gone 6-0 in District 9-6Aplay, Sebring closes out the regular season this week, traveling to Port St. Lucie Thursday and hosting DeSoto Friday and celebrating Senior Night. The team then heads to the district tournament at Winter Haven, Monday, April 23. Streaks win by committee

C M Y K By KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated PressORLANDO Magic center Dwight Howard was diagnosed by a doctor in Los Angeles with a herniated disc in his lower back, a team spokesman said. Howard sat out the Magics 109-81 loss to the Atlanta Hawks Friday night, the fifth game hes missed in Orlandos last seven outings. Magic spokesman Joel Glass said Howard was examined by Dr. Robert Watkins after Howard flew out there earlier Friday for a second opinion for what had previously be called back spasms since he injured his back at the end of March. There is no timetable for his return and it will be based on how he responds to treatment. Howard is scheduled to fly back to Orlando on Saturday. The Magic are now 1-4 without him this season. Magic coach Stan Van Gundy says Howard was in pain following the teams practice Thursday. The coach wasnt optimistic hell be ready to play at Cleveland Sunday or against Philadelphia on Monday. The Magic entered Friday tied in place in the Eastern Conference with Atlanta, though the Hawks hold the head-to-head tiebreaker. They remained in the same spot following the loss. With his fifth missed regular-season game Howard set a new personal high for missed games in a season. He missed four games last season. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, April 15, 2012Page 3D golf tournament chamber; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; golf tournament chamber; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 8 8 9 9 0 0 4 4 SPRINGLAKE GOLF RESORT* NEW; 3.639"; 3"; Black; april ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 8 8 4 4 3 3 7 7 No errant pitch, nor catch, would give Lake Placid a run t his time, rather, Morgan Lott came through with a shot through the left side to plate W eaver and make it a 3-0 game. DeSoto got itsfirst base runner since the first, when Anderson reached on an infield hit with one out. But the inning ended soon after when a grounder to third began a Cram to Miller to Lott double play. Cram then also started the final Dragon rally, drawing a walk and reaching second w hen ball four was a wild pitch that somehow ricocheted over the backstop. The Bulldogs then went to t he bullpen and got the next b atter. But Daum and Miller both worked their counts for walks to load the bases and Weaver came through with a single to bring Cram home. From there, it was just a matter of reaching the finish, which Harris did as he seemed to get stronger. Donovan Day reached to start the fifth, but was soon picked off first before Harris disposed of the next two hitters on called third strikes. Another backwards K began the sixth, followed by a fly-out to right and grounder to first. And in the seventh, a lazy l iner to short and a one-hopper back to the mound made for the first two outs. And though Chris Steele got hold of one, a hard liner headed for left, Cram came up big with a diving snare to end the game. We didnt do a lot of bad stuff, and we did some good things too, Coomes said. We had some good base running, some key base hits and the defense made some plays especially Cram, a freshman we brought up, who must have had half a dozen plays out there tonight. Coming into the night, DeSoto was 4-3 in district play and Lake Placid 3-4. The outcome put both teams at 4-4, but with the Dragons having swept the season series, the third seed for the district tournament was theirs. Frostproof, which had been 5-2, with idle Avon Park sitting at 5-3, jumped to the top seed with Fridays win. Heading into the tournament, which will be hosted by the Red Devils and begins Monday, April 23, Coomes has a good measure of his squad and what they need to do to succeed. Were not a team thats going to just come in and score a bunch of runs every time out, he said. We need to play tough. We have good pitching and we play good defense, but we need to execute on offense. We have to take advantage of every situation, any way we can. Continued from 1D News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Heath Harris pitched another gem Friday night, going 7 innings, allowing just three hits, no walks and striking out three as he shut out DeSoto. News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Rufino Gutierez hits the deck as second baseman Ricky Miller gets to this pop fly in short center during Fridays win. LP gets win, third seed for District Tournament only the second game in the Marlinsnew $634 million home. The Marlins have long struggled with poor attendance, and Guillens comments antagonized a large percentage of their fan base just as the franchise was enjoying a sense of rejuvenation thanks to the new ballpark. First baseman Gaby Sanchez, whose parents are Cuban exiles, said the best thing the players can do to help the situation is start playing better. After an offseason spending binge, the Marlins were touted as playoff contenders, but they began the homestand 2-5 and last in the NL East. All we can do is go out there and win games, Sanchez said. If we start doing that, hopefully it will start to turn a little bit. Its not going to truly subside, but hopefully it does a little bit. Marlins catcher John Buck agreed some success by the team could help defuse the tension and bring back any fans staying away in protest. Winning helps everything, right? Buck said. If we put a fun team on the field, people will come. Marlins broadcaster Cookie Rojas, a former player and a native of Havana, predicted the anger of the Cuban community will die down in the aftermath of Guillens apology. He asked people to forgive him, Rojas said. Youve got to move on. You cant keep bringing it back. Lets get over with it and play ball. Guillen returns to the dugout Tuesday. Sanchez said he unde rstood both sides of the issue. He said Guillen a Venezuelan speaking English, his second language, in a magazine interview did not say what he meant, but Sanchez understood why his fellow Cuban Americans were so upset. Its one of those hot-button topics, Sanchez said. You have to understand the Cuban community and everybody of Cuban descent and what their families went through. Ozzie did a great job in his apology. Hopefully the Cuban community will forgive him and start supporting us. I think time will do the job. Associated Press Writer Christine Amario contributed to this report. Continued from 1D Marlins hope to win, move on Howard has herniated disc in back By DAVID KLEPPER Associated PressBOSTON The Red Sox may win or they may lose, but at 100 years young, beloved Fenway Park continues to win over fans as the teams most valuable player. Loyal citizens of Red Sox nation returned to the oldest major league ballpark on Friday to celebrate a gorgeously sunny opening day game against Tampa Bay and the start of Fenways 101st season. Its like going to church every day, retired knuckleballer Tim Wakefield said of his days at Fenway. The stadium is the star here. Fenway is the star. While formal birthday festivities are slated for next week, several Red Sox legends were on hand to start a season-long celebration. Wakefield and retired catcher Jason Varitek threw out dual opening pitches to former Red Sox greats Dwight Evans and Jim Rice. The fans roared when former coach and player Johnny Pesky, 92, walked out on the field. Fenway, though, has always belonged to the fans. Sal DAmico remembers coming to games here as a little boy; on Friday the 42year-old Dracut, Mass. resident brought his six-year-old son Sal Jr. for what would be his first Red Sox game. DAmico has seen other parks. Been to Wrigley Field in Chicago. Its Fenway thats home. Its just a magical place, he said. Theres something about it, about the tradition, about how theres not a bad seat in the house. Fenways formal birthday party is timed for the 100th anniversary of the teams first Fenway game, an April 20, 1912 extra-innings victory over the New York Highlanders, later renamed the Yankees. Boston Mayor John Fitzgerald John F. Kennedys grandfather threw out the first pitch. Red Sox begin 101st season in historic Fenway Park

And though Wooden did take .02 seconds off his qualifying time, it wasnt quite enough to move him on to regionals. The pair were back at it in the 200-meter dash, with Turner racing to the third best qualifying time and Wooden m aking the finals in the seventh slot. The competition then heated up in the finals, as each of the top five runners saw their times drop, with Tenorocs Travis Tucker breaking the 22 second mark, getting a 21.84, for the win. Turner went from 23.13 to 23.05, believed to be a new Avon Park school record, but the drops in times all around h im saw his position slip to fourth, though still moving him on to next weeks regiona l meet. The longer distance runs didnt have any preliminary heats, meaning those runners were going to have to be on top of their game for their one shot. Two Lake Placid runners did just that in the 1,600, with Dalton Shelton taking second and Tobias Kuhn fourth to move on. Shelton, who made it to state this past fall in cross country, then turned on the after burners in the 3,200, winning with a time of 10:50.28, 13 seconds ahead of his nearest threat. Not being pushed more might explain Sheltons drop in time from his seeded 10:32.52, but shows that he has plenty left in reserve as he moves to stiffer competition. The Dragons then got another double qualifier in Keplet Charite who took second in the 110-meter hurdles and third in the 300. Avon Parks Steven Roberts also advanced in the hurdles, using his long strides to take second in the 300, giving Highlands County two representatives in the event. The Red Devils also got two tossers moving on to Titusville, as Damian Lovett rode a 40-foot, 8-inch shot put toss to take second and advance and Masco Louis hurled the discus 117-feet, 8inches to take fourth and stamp his ticket to regionals. Also rising up was a lone Highlands County lady, Green Dragon Taylor Miller, who erased an early lead by Gulfs Paige Pinder to get the fastest qualifying time in the 100-meter hurdles. But soon after, in the qualifying heat for the 300-meter distance of the event, Miller seemed out of sorts, falling behind early and not able to make up much ground. She made it to the finals, barely, with a time nearly four seconds slower than her seed time. I had a hip injury in volleyball, which came up again during soccer season, Miller said. Its been bothering me the past few weeks, so Ive been trying to rest it as much as I could. It started hurting again after I ran the 100, but I couldnt give up. With a remedy of Icy Hot and rest, Miller took advantage of the break in the action before the final heats and nearly equaled her qualifying time in the 100, to take second to Pinder, who knocked .20 seconds off her qualifying time. With the pain still lingering, there was a brief thought of scratching for the 300 finals. But thats not the type of athlete I am, she said. I knew I probably wasnt going to make it, but I tried. Her effort nearly paid off too, as she was just edged out of fourth place by another Gulf runner, Renee Patnode. I had made it to regionals my freshman year in the 100 hurdles and the 4X400 relay, Miller, now a senior said. It felt good to make it back. I was really excited. As should all the Avon Park and Lake Placid athletes who took part and gave it their all in aspiring to reach the next level of competition.

Heres what they found out about their home, which they recently expanded from 1,284 to 1,856 square feet, including tips for any homeowner:TOP SIX IMPROVEMENTSCommon air infiltration points Electric outlets 2% Floors, walls, ceilings Ducts Fireplace Plumbing 11% Doors Windows 10% Fans, vents 4% SOURCE: SUSTAINABLE SPACES31% 15% 14% 13% Average residential gas useHeating 57% Hot water 8% Cooking 8% Clothes dryer SOURCE: SUSTAINABLE SPACES28%NOTE: NUMBERS ARE ROUNDED 6ATTIC INSULATION PROBLEM: The recommended R-value (thermal resistance) for attic insulation is R-30 or greater. The Griffithsis R-17.9. SOLUTION: Replace with blown-in cellulose with an Rvalue of 35. If using fiberglass instead, it should make contact with every surface being insulated, leaving no air spaces. PRICE: $5,060*1ASBESTOS PROBLEM:Asbestos, which can cause cancer, is used to seal the furnace and the air ducts in the Griffithshouse. SOLUTION: The asbestos should be removed by trained professionals and replaced with non-toxic sealing material. PRICE: $1,512* (asbestos removal only)2AIR DUCT PROBLEM:The houses new addition is always colder than the rest of the house. The new heating ducts that lead to this room do not match the original duct system, causing unequal heat distribution throughout the house. The proper ductwork should be much larger at the furnace and get smaller toward the end, creating enough pressure for hot air to travel to the most distant rooms. SOLUTION: Replace old ducts with appropriately sized ducts and a more airtight system. PRICE:$5,730*3FURNACE PROBLEM: The 38-year-old furnace is more powerful than necessary, which adds cost. It produces 64,000 BTUs per hour, when this house needs only 28,400 BTUs per hour.SOLUTION:Install 95% efficient furnace with a programmable thermostat. PRICE:$5,688*4AIR FILTRATION PROBLEM: Outdated air filtration system. SOLUTION:Replace the air filter with a high-efficiency air filtration system, up to 40 times more efficient than standard furnace filters. PRICE:$713* 5AIR SEALING PROBLEM:Even though air leakage is not a major problem in this house, stronger seals will reduce the influx of polluted outdoor air and improve energy efficiency. Some of the points where leakage occurs are around the recessed can lights in the ceilings, at vent pipes that exhaust to the roof and around electrical outlets. SOLUTION: Seal areas where air leakage occurs. PRICE: $1,520* FIVE MORE FIXESBOLD APPLIANCES:In most homes, electrical consumption is made up of lighting and some major appliances. The Griffith family replaced almost all the light bulbs with compact fluorescents. They have an old washer and dryer but can only replace one appliance.SOLUTION: Energy-saving technology has improved more in washers than in dryers. Replace the old washer, which uses about 900 kWh per year, with a front-loading Energy Star washer that uses about 300 kWh per year. AWATER HEATER:The family wants to save energy by replacing the 40-gallon water heater with a tankless water heater. Sustainable Spaces doesnt believe it works for a family of five: They use a lot of gas to get water heated from 50 degrees, which is about the temperature it enters the house from the street, to 120 degrees for your showers. SOLUTION: Get a highly insulated 50-gallon water heater with a demand circulation pump. The pump moves hot water to sinks and showers quickly when they are about to be used. CPHANTOM LOADS:Phantom loads or vampire loads refer to electronic devices that consume energy even when turned off. Over the course of a TVs life, 70% of the power it consumes will occur when it is off. DCARBON MONOXIDE:A small amount of carbon monoxide was detected in the house. This can be from rusted, clogged exhaust pipes, chimneys or poorly vented heating systems. SOLUTION: Have heating, cooling systems inspected annually. Install a low-level carbon monoxide detector. ESOLAR PANEL:The Griffiths want to install solar panels. Sustainable Spaces recommended that, before going solar, the family first reduce its electrical use. Less power consumption means fewer solar panels needed.

Some of the latest versions have the familiar shape of incandescent bulbs and can be deployed in spotlights and recessed lights as well as lamps and other fixtures.BLOWER DOOR: Andrew Dunn, a home performance technician with Sustainable Spaces, runs a diagnostic tool called the blower door test to measure airtightness and locate air leaks in the Griffithshome. Ahighpowered fan attached to a panel that is stretched taut over the front door is connected to pressuresensing devices that indicate how much air moves in and out of the structure. Sealing leaky spots will reduce energy consumption and make the home more comfortable.BEING SAFE: You never know what you might encounter when climbing into an attic crawl space. Jason Bowers, a home performance specialist with Sustainable Spaces, is careful to don a special mask to protect himself from breathing in dust, asbestos, fiberglass or other particulates.INFRARED CAMERA: Bowers uses an infrared camera to measure the temperature of the interior walls in the Griffithshome. These calculations help the technicians judge the performance of insulation in the walls.BALOMETER:ABalometer is lifted up to each of the homes heating vents to measure the amount of conditioned air that is flowing. After entering separate calculations for each vent, a computerized model will show that the homes aging ductwork is not delivering warm air in equal amounts to all of its rooms. GREENLIVING
