C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK — Monday night’s regular council meeting got off to a slow star t when Mayor Sharon Schule r and city attorney Gerald Buhr huddled in an extended whispered conference, bu t the nearly standing-roomonly crowd waited quietly for a discussion about the conflict between Police Chief Michael Rowan and the city council. Both the city council and Rowan accuse each other o f improper investigations: Rowan allegedly secretly taped conversations with council members and some city hall staff, while the council asked the Polk County Sheriff to investigate Rowan after the Florida Department of Law Enforcement declined to conduct an investigation.

Although the family was home at the time of the fire, no one was injured. News Sun StaffSEBRING – The misconceived smoke coming from a graduation party barbecue may have actually saved the lives of Clay and Lauri Kinslow and their children late Saturday afternoon. Don and Shelia McIntyre were on their way to a graduation party but had never been to the house before. As they drove down the short Eiland Road, they saw smoke and assumed it was coming from a barbecue. Instead, when they got closer they saw flames spreading up and around the corner of the Kinslow home at 4202 Eiland. “I went running up to the door and started banging on it to get everyone out,” Don McIntyre said. Sheila McIntrye said the Kinslows went into their garage and drove their vehicles out. Clay Kinslow then ran back into the house and started throwing personal belongings – paintings, clothes, an antique sewing machine, a lap top – out of the windows. Unfortunately, she said, the items were also destroyed by fire as the flames ignited surrounding trees and grass within just a few short minutes. Fortunately, the Kinslows, their teenage daughter and young son all escaped with no injury.

C M Y K By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING — County commissioners have set specific dates for budget workshops to begin in July. The county set the following dates for budget workshops: 5-8 p.m. on July 18; 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 21; 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 25; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Aug. 1; and 5-8 p.m. on Aug. 4. Abalanced budget is due on July 12 by state statute, and after that Tuesday morning meeting, commissioners will hold five workshops for the public before the final budget is approved by the board. “This will be a combined decision by the board and the public,” Elwell said. Commissioners Don Elwell and Jack Richie have already encouraged different groups, such as the IDA/EDC to take a look at a 10 percent cut across the board because of the estimated 10 percent drop in ad valorem revenue. Board Chair Barbara Stewart informed the public that CDs of the budget would be available for purchase and that the libraries would all have a copy of the budget available for the pubic review. Additionally, according to County Administrator Ricky Helms, the budget will be available on the county website at www.hcbcc.net. “I want people need to take advantage of what is available so people do not come in and ask for a complete update on what we are discussing,” Stewart said. “Emphasis should also be on constructive discussions.” Fells is speaker at Voters LeagueSEBRING – Andrew Fells, newly elected council member for the city of Sebring, will speak to members and guests of the Highlands County Voters League at the regular meeting on Thursday at Homer’s Restaurant.

Builders Club By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comLAKE PLACID — “If there is a derelict home in Lake Placid, and you own it, you better get it fixed quick,” said Mayor John Holbrook after the Lake Placid Town Council refused to waive a $31,500 code enforcement lien on Monday. The home in question, located at 312 Sirena Drive, and now owned by US Bank National Association after foreclosure proceedings, needed considerable repair after the previous owners moved out. Realtor Eloise Best with Remax Reality Plus asked the council to waive part or all of the liens against the home at the request of the bank. “It is my job to try and get the liens reduced so we can move the home,” Best said. “I am not personally involved in this, but I told the bank I would approach you and make the request.” “Are you in a position to negotiate for the bank?” Holbrook asked. “No. I am just the listing agent,” Best explained. According to the council’s meeting packet, the owner of the house, Orlando Marrero, was cited on Oct. 29, 2009 for problems with the roof and yard. The house was empty at the time, and the certified letter to the owners, who reside in Winter Haven, was refused delivery. Alien was filed by the town for $200 fine plus administration fees and cost of prosecution, and the owner was given 30 days to bring the house into compliance or face $100 per day in extra fines. The home was not brought into compliance until US Bank National foreclosed, and the fines stopped on May 13 of this year. The total fine was calculated at $31,500, and according to Best, and the bank was asking for some of that to be waived. Council member Debra Worley made the motion to deny the request, asking Best why the bank did not stop the process sooner. “Why would the bank not research this? These foreclosures drag on for years, and the bank had to know about this,” Worley said. “No one is taking responsibility for these foreclosures. I am sorry, but I do not see why we would do this.” “In my opinion, the bank has some responsibility here,” council member Steve Bastardi said. “Why would we reduce this if they are going to pay us in order to sell the house?” Holbrook asked.

C M Y K Associated PressNEWORLEANS — A Florida-based supplier of Chinese drywall has agreed to a $55 million settlement of claims that the corrosive product damaged homes. The proposed settlement announced Tuesday could resolve thousands of claims — mostly by Florida homeowners — against Banner Supply Company, several related companies and its insurers. Lawyers for the companies and homeowners are asking U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon in New Orleans to approve the deal. Only plaintiffs whose homes contain Chinese drywall supplied by Banner would be eligible for shares of the settlement fund. Banner purchased roughly 1.4 million sheets of Chinese drywall but claims it didn’t know of any defects. The agreement covers just a portion of the claims by homeowners who blame drywall for a host of problems, including corrosion of electrical wiring, appliances and electronics. The atmosphere between the parties is strained and hostile, with the council bent on forcing Rowan out. For example, in the course of the discussion Monday, interim city manager Julian Deleon mentioned in passing that the city might even hire Rowan back some day. Schuler and Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray, however, snorted loudly, Gray saying, “No way.” Deleon attempted to act as peace broker during the meeting. He asked the council for the latitude to continue negotiating with Rowan in the hope that an amicable settlement could still be reached. “The truth is, it will be a lot more economical if both parties walk away,” Deleon said, adding that settlements are a way of avoiding costly litigation, which “nobody wins.” City council members, however, appeared committed to continuing the investigation of Rowan. “I don’t have a problem with the agreement itself.” Schuler said. “I just have a problem with (item) number four (in the agreement).” The item states the city council will terminate its investigation of Rowans’investigation of it. “I only think if we don’t complete what we started it’s not fair to the chief. It’s only fair to complete what we started and clear his name,” said Schuler. When Rowan’s attorney, Robert Grizzard, went to the podium to speak on Rowan’s behalf, it became clear Rowan was ready to fight. He is strongly considering a lawsuit, his attorney said. Grizzard told the council when Rowan changed his mind over the weekend, as was his right, Deleon immediately terminated Rowan’s paid leave of absence, suspending him without pay. This act reinforced Rowan’s desire to confront the council, he said. “Litigation is a search for the truth,” said Grizzard, “That’s what it’s supposed to be about. The chief has decided the truth matters.” “The truth does matter,” said Schuler, repeating that Rowan should welcome the Polk County Sheriff’s investigation. The council took no action Monday night beyond giving Deleon more time to create an agreement acceptable to all parties. Lack of money may well contribute to the eventual outcome. Rowan no longer has an income, and just before t he meeting, Finance Directo r Renee Green warned the council that $26,000 of the Legal Department’s $40,000 budget has been spent in the last six months. Those costs included work on othe r issues, but it means there is less than $14,000 left to spend on legal fees in the fiscal year — which ends Sept. 30 “You can still pay city attorney Gerald Buhr for a few months more,” Green joked. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, June 15, 2011Page 3A MARTIAL ARTS (pp); 3.639"; 3"; Black; ff top rhp only DAILY COMMERCIAL; 9.347"; 9"; Black plus three; process, century link the host for the fun, learning event.

Each group concentrated on several points of swimming including breathing techniques and kicking. The WLSLis persistent in the idea of drowning prevention. The instructors worked with swimmers ranging from kids who have never entered the water to advanced swimmers. The instructors were patient and diligent with each of the students. According to Cuencas, the WLSLhad 700 facilities participating internationally in the event, led by Florida, which had 70 host facilities. Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon was been designated as the official headquarters of the event for the second year. “It’s important that lessons are given, especially here in Florida (where) swimming is our pastime,” said Cuencas.

In light of that, it is a blight on America even to think or to know that a member of the Congress of the United States has been sending email tweets to young women he doesn’t even know — taking advantage of them for his own apparent sexual pleasure. Anthony Weiner, you are a pervert and you should step down now. Your blatant hypocrisy is never more evident than when your record as a selfproclaimed defender of youth is examined. You have bragged about your efforts to defend children; for example, writing that in early 2007 your office “did a study that found that over 85% of registered sex offenders in New York City live less than five blocks from schools, and 670 sex offenders live within just two blocks. Some offenders are even closer, permanently residing less than 500 feet away from unwitting parents, educators and children.” Do those “efforts” include setting an example of moral rectitude by living a life free of sexual episodes? It appears that this is not the case as your e-mail “tweets” laden with sex show. Nowhere is your hypocrisy more evident than in your recent press release where you bragged that “along with several colleagues in Congress, we introduced & passed the KIDS (Keeping the Internet Devoid of Sexual Predators) Act of 2007, a bill to require sex offenders to register their e-mail and instant message addresses with the National Sex Offender Registry. The ‘Kid’s Act’implemented one of my six recommendations to keep a closer eye on sex offenders both near school grounds and online. I also proposed stricter GPS tracking of sex offenders, tougher enforcement of registration laws and more public disclosure of sex offender data.” You go on to say, “Sadly, the Internet is the predator’s venue of choice today. We need to update our strategies and our laws to stop these offenders who are a mere click away from our children.” It would seem that the Internet is also your “venue of choice” when you choose to send sexually explicit photos of yourself to women you don’t know and who have never expressed any desire to see you in sexually compromising situations. In your apologetic press conference you freely admitted your guilt in these matters but you left unsaid the words your actions demanded — namely your intent to resign from the U.S. House of Representatives, which you have disgraced. Your critics have often characterized you as being arrogant. You have now proven them right. Nothing could be more arrogant that your outright refusal to do the honorable thing and resign from the House of Representatives which you have, by your actions, seriously demeaned. In your arrogance you have failed to understand that you are now the butt o f jokes — not exactly the status a member of Congress seeks. You owe your constituents an apology; you owe your bride more than that. It’s time to pay your debts to both. Go home, Rep. Weiner, and contemplate your offense against decency and the people you are obliged to represent.

Anthony Weiner, hypocrite Making Sense Michael Reagan Some who live just outside of Avon Park or Lake Placid consider annexation as just a possible increase in property taxes. It is true that annexation can add a layer of fees and administration, but that amount varies widely based on the location, size and situation of the property, and in most cases is minimal compared to the increased amount of available services that annexation brings. Increased professional fire and police services come to mind immediately. Although the volunteer fire departments and sheriff’s office in Highlands County do a great job, minutes save lives and property, and who doesn’t want the fire department or law enforcement on the spot when they are needed? Water and sewer services are available both within and without the local municipalities, but there is no added surcharge if you live within the city. In the Avon Park area, that is a 25 percent difference, and in Lake Placid, it will soon be a considerable cost difference in the cost of access to recreation. In both towns, annexation ensures that each resident or business pays its fair share of the cost of providing services and that no one group subsidizes another. Especially when it comes to recreation. Looking at a situation by situation case, annexation into a municipality could overall decrease the cost for utilities and property insurance enough to offset any increases in possible property taxes. Annexation in both areas of the county increases the voice and impact of the local democratic process, and can actually increase the influence at the state level for items such as grants and state budget issues. Annexation also gives those on the edges of the municipalities a voice in the land use planning and future development, something that definitely affects property values. Finally, annexation allows citizens a chance to vote for the city council that sets the standards, fees and budgets that effect their lives. Overall, there is very little downside to annexation in Highlands County and the possible increases in property taxes is just one small aspect that has to be considered. You have to look at the pros and cons before deciding against annexation in your specific case, but do the math and consider the benefits before you rule it out completely. Annexation not a bad idea The municipalities at both ends of the county are looking to annex in order to deal with complex regional problems, and after taking an objective look it is clear that there are benefits to annexation that have been overlooked. Questions need some answersEditor: I received a letter from Congressman Rooney today congratulating himself on his dedication to fiscal conservatism. There is little opportunity for a citizen to deliver a rebuttal when a politician outright lies. Congressman, you just are not telling the truth and it’s quite an insult to my intelligence. We spend $10 billion each and every month chasing our tails and propping up the world heroin trade in Afghanistan. That in itself would be a moral failing if it weren’t for the additional fact of death and mayhem being delivered upon the Afghan people and some little sons of Americans, much like your boys and my boy. Which one of your sons are you preparing to become a pink shower of blood and bone in the desert? Will it be your oldest son? Your baby? Why do you approve of cutting education, cutting health care, cutting food safety, cutting disaster relief, cutting aid to poor children and families, but you approve of merchants of death keeping hundreds of billions a year? Why Mr. Rooney? Tell me why? I am your boss and I demand to know. Don’t evade the question with your typical blame the Democrats rhetoric. They are no less to blame. But you are my representative and I am not satisfied by your refusal to address this issue. It is an immoral and cynical, sick lie to tell me we spend too much taxpayer money when you refuse to look at the greatest waste of taxpayer money. In your letter you claim that you went to Washington to make the difficult choices. You are lying. Mike Pirkkala SebringLegions answer to misconceptionEditor: An individual who apparently has no idea what the American Legion represents or does, does not have the right to slander the American Legion in her reference to “all you drunks.” The individual she labeled as a drunk has a great deal of balance and walking on uneven surfaces, due to service and has never had any accidents of any kind. He, more cautious! The American Legion in Lake Placid is over 80 years old, chartered in 1930. We are the largest veterans’ organization in Highlands County and have contributed to veterans, youth and community more than any other group. We have a lounge that is a “home” to many local veterans that are old and lonely. We monitor all who drink with us and have, on occasion, given rides home when a person appears to have more than they should. Labeling a 1,200-plus member organization as “all you drunks” is hardly fair. J.P. Plunkett Commander American Legion, Lake Placid BouquetsProduction is tribute to McCollumEditor: Highlands Little Theatre’s current production of “Little Women” is a wonderful tribute to Jim McCollum. Jim was slated to be the director until his untimely death last year. Jim’s wife, Sue, stepped into the director’s role and has brought a warm, loving play to the main stage at Highlands Little Theatre. The actors all interact beautifully together making a believable family experiencing the sibling rivalry of sisters, and daughters wanting to please and do for their mother during the 1860s with our country at war. The show takes you through a range of emotions as you get a glimpse of a year from the story we all read as children. Some of these emotions include the giddiness of young girls, the stress of poverty, the fear that a family member may die from scarlet fever or something happening to their father who is serving as a chaplain in the Army, and the “Little Women” experiencing love. The set, costumes, lighting, etc. are all well done and take you back to a more formal time in our country’s history. Some of the customs of the time period are evident through the story, such as the importance of a lady wearing gloves, the formality of invitations and serving tea. There are several memorable supporting characters that will make you laugh out loud. The housekeeper, the neighbor and the family’s aunt are among a few of these characters. Go see the show for yourself, call Highlands Little Theatre or go to the website and order your tickets as you have one more weekend to catch this show before it closes on Sunday, June 19. Olivia Scott Avon ParkPharmacists help during critical timeEditor: My son, who has special needs as well as medical issues, has for many years had personal attention given to his prescriptions and supplies at Gilberts Drug Store. After a recent critical hospital stay, all of his medications were changed, with ensuing confusion as to combinations, dosages, and quantities, especially as he was preparing to move out of state. The pharmacists at Gilberts spent a great deal of time checking with doctors, insurance, and drug company information to ensure that all were correct and compatible. So much personal attention, time, and concern are rare these days. So, from a grateful patient and family, kudos and many, many thanks to all the staff at Gilberts Drug Store.

Petty Officer Nick Ameen says a Coast Guard cutter began following the 25-foot boat around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday because it did not have its navigational lights on. Ameen says the boat tried to elude authorities before stopping around 4 a.m. about a dozen miles off Delray Beach. That’s when Ameen says the crew spotted numerous people emerging from the boat’s lower cabin. Then the boat capsized. Petty Officer Krystyna Hannum says one person was taken to a hospital. The rest are being questioned aboard the cutter. Hannum says a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s dive team found one body beneath the sunken boat, which had drifted farthe r north. 11 rescued, 1 dead after boat capsizes off Delray Beach GET YOUR LOCAL NEWS STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCEƒ Griffin’s 4x10

Arecent clash between the Lake June Pointe’s architect committee and a local builder prompted the request from Lake June Pointe’s board members. Atwo-story townhouse style of house is being built that meets the minimum square-foot requirements, but does not match the single story homes prevalent in the neighborhood, according to the board of directors from Lake June Pointe. “I am not even sure that the homeowner is aware that we did not approve the builder’s plans,” said Lake June Pointe’s Architect Committee member Marlene Barger. “This is not an attack on any one builder. We have members within our community that are concerned about their property values and the consistency needed for accurate appraisals. In the recent case, the committee did not approve the plans; we did not even have a chance to review a complete set of plans before the concrete was delivered. “What we are trying to do is to avoid any delays for the builder and the community because of litigation.” “Abuilder is ignoring our deed restrictions,” said Joy Everhardt, member of the Lake June Pointe Architect Committee, on Monday night. “There is a house being built and we have not approved the plans. Now we have to litigate to get it stopped and that will create all kinds of delays. We are trying to head off these kinds of problems. We don’t want this just for our community; we need this for all of the associations who have design restrictions.” “I am just asking that an ordinance be drafted that any building permit is not granted in any community with restrictions without that community’s review and approval,” Barger told the council. “I think we can get them to sign off on the architectural design before the permit is issued, but I don’t think we can get into enforcement issues after that permit is issued,” said councilman Ray Royce, who made the motion supporting Barger’s request. “No, we are not trying to create enforcement issues; those can be handled after the permit is issued if the builder does not stick to the designs approved. We are just trying to get the community involved in the decision process before any litigation has to happen. Once the permit is issued, the city is out of the picture,” Barger assured the council. “We are not trying to bad mouth any builder; they are just trying to get their job done as efficiently and effectively as possible. They have a business to run. We are just trying to head off these kinds of issues before they are a problem,” Barger said. “No one wants delays because we have to file litigation to stop an unapproved project.” The council directed Williams to return by June 27 to the council with an idea of how to proceed.

C M Y K LeBron James brought this on himself. The ridicule, the scorn, the unabashed delight seemingly everyone outside of South Beach is taking in his failure to win the NBAtitle — it’s all on him. When you make a spectacle of yourself and give the impression you’re above everyone else, as James did with his shockingly tonedeaf “Decision,” you have to back it up. Not only did James not live up to the hype he predicted, his ineffectiveness when it mattered most showed that his supporting cast in Cleveland might not have been the real problem. “I think it all comes down to the play,” said Steve Rosner, the co-founder of 16WMarketing. “He really did not play well in this final series. Everyone started reading articles comparing him to the greatest players in the game. Really, besides having some indivi dual honors, he hasn’t put his stamp on the game of basketball.” Harsh, but hard to argue with when the title bestowed on James and Co. last summer wound up belonging to someone else. There is no question James is a spectacular talent, a once-in-a-generation player who can do things that defy both the imagination By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK –It is one of those stories one hears, of a career knocked off track, whether it be about injury or situation or both, but with the athlete getting redemption. It is the story that Avon Park native, and Highlands County softball legend, Heather Barnes has lived through these past three years. From a shoulder injury and surgery that hampered her senior season for the Lady Red Devils, Barnes was still awarded a scholarship to Division I Stetson. But whether it was a conflict in philosophy with the Stetson program, the shift to that level of play, coupled with the after effects of the shoulder surgery, or the adjustment to being away from home and on her own for the first time, or likely a combination of all of those, Barnes’year in Deland didn’t turn out so well. Not to mention the shoulder was reinjured and needed a second surgery as her freshman year was coming to an end. Seeking refuge, a comfort zone from which to start anew, Barnes came home for her sophomore year and played at South Florida Community College for head coach Carlos Falla, a long-time family friend and mentor. “It definitely helped me get comfortable being on the field again,” she said. “And I knew Carlos was going to do everything he could to get me ready to play D1 again.” Relegated to playing first base to protect her shoulder, the former standout at shortstop’s season turned out all right, with a .315 batting average and second team All-Sun Coast Conference honors. But Barnes’wasn’t satisfied. “It was a good season,” she said. “But not as good as I was hoping for.” And then the hard realization soon set in. With her junior college eligibility now run out, Barnes was looking for a place to play, knowing the market would be a tough one. “I knew they weren’t going to come looking for me, so I had to go around and make contact,” she said. “I got in touch with Florida Atlantic’s (head) coach (Joan Joyce) because she had recruited me out of high school. “And of course I had to say, ‘Oh by the way, I’ve had my shoulder operated on twice,’” Barnes continued. “But she said, ‘Come show me the arm is OK and I’ll bring you in.;’” And so it was off to the Boca Raton campus and back to work to show she belonged. “I was in rehab from the day I got there to the day I left,” she said. “Which helped keep my arm strength up.” And, perhaps as important, she was given her freedom at the plate, a philosophy she relished getting back to. “(Joyce) knew the kind of ballplayer I was and could be,” Barnes said. “And at FAU it’s more the mindset of, if it works for you, just do it. That made me feel a lot more comfortable to play my game and it was a lot of fun between the campus, my teammates and the coaches.” Able to play her game and with the renewed confidence, she bounced back in a big way and gave the Owls more than they could have expected. Barnes wound up the season leading the team in batting average (.318), hits (50), on base percentage and total bases. She also tied for second on the team with three home runs and was second in stolen bases, slugging percentage and doubles. Not to mention, each of those home runs either gave FAU the lead late in games, twice against South Alabama, and one was a walk-off winner, a three-run shot with an 0-2 count to overcome a two-run deficit SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, June 15, 2011 NASCAR This Week4B Courtesy photo Former Sebring High School outfielder Johnathan Knight was a featured guest on Ed Lynchs Sports TalkŽ show on Saturday, June 11.

C M Y K www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, June 15, 2011Page 3B to Florida International. Her impressive stats also garnered her a Sun Belt Conference Player of the Week honor late in the season and she was also named first team All-Conference at second base and to the AllConference Tournament Team. Along road back with a great culmination, though a j ourney many would like to have avoided. And yet, Barnes wouldn’t change a thing. “If things hadn’t gone like they did, I wouldn’t have ended up at FAU and as happy as I am,” she said. “It was humbling, it taught me a lot about myself and my ability to overcome obstacles. I would do it the same exact way. “And now I can just look ahead,” Barnes continued. “I don’t have to worry about where I’m going to play next year or if my arm’s going to make it. I can just look forward to having a fun year.” Back home for the summer, it’s back to normalcy, comfort and the long-familiar routine as Barnes and father Ronnie were back on the diamond at SFCC Monday. Joined by fellow Division I softball player and former rival, Sebring’s “Slammin’” Sammy Lower, it was back to the basics of fielding drills and batting practice. “We took about a week and a half off after our seasons were done and started practicing again,” Barnes said. “Part of it is knowing we have to get the work in to get ready for next season, but it’s mostly just fun to get on the field, to play and catch up with Sammy.” Which might be the truest testament as to why Barnes has persevered through the trials and tribulations these past few years –her undying love of the game. Continued from 1B Courtesy photo An unforseen stat that Barnes threw on the board this past season was seven stolen bases … in seven attempts. Courtesy photo Moved to second base this season as her arm gained strength, Barnes wasnt afraid to get down and dirty to make a play. Barnes at ease with Owls and the laws of physics. His back-to-back MVP awards in 2009 and 2010 were well-deserved, and with 17,362 points in his first eight seasons, he likely will be among the NBA’s alltime leading scorers by the time his career ends. Statistics have little weight without a championship to back them up, though, and James is now 0 for 2 in the NBAfinals. Accused of quitting in last year’s playoffs with Cleveland, James responded with a ferocity this year, dragging the Miami Heat through the early rounds. He’d become a national pariah after abandoning his beleaguered hometown in humiliating fashion, and he played like a man who knew the only way to salvage his reputation was with a title. But when the games were on the line against the Dallas Mavericks, James disappeared. He managed just 18 points in the fourth quarter of the six-game series, and his silence was a major factor in why the Mavericks were able to rally again and again. In the cardinal sin of sports, he didn’t seem to want it nearly as badly as Dirk Nowitzki, who played with a torn tendon in his finger and a 101-degree fever. Or Jason Kidd, who showed no regard for his 38year-old body as he repeatedly dived for loose balls. Or even James’own teammate, Dwyane Wade, who scored a team-high 23 in Game 5 despite a bruised hip so painful it had him in the locker room twice for treatment. “Sometimes you got it, sometimes you don’t,” James said. “And that was this case in this series. I was able to do things in the last two series to help us win ballgames. Wasn’t able to do that in this series.” Lesser talents can get away with saying that — not that they ever would. But James made the move to Miami for the sole purpose of winning NBAtitles, and that dismissive arrogance is exactly why fans rooted so hard against him and his buddies. And they still don’t get it, with Heat coach Erik Spoelstra having the audacity to talk about the “sacrifice” James made in coming to Miami. Former NFLplayer Pat Tillman giving up his life for his country, that’s a sacrifice. Giving up a few million — pocket change for someone who earned an estimated $48 million last year — to be part of the best team money can buy doesn’t compare. Look, James had every right to leave Cleveland. The days of a star staying with one team for his entire career are long gone, and it had to have been exhausting to be expected to revive a struggling Rust Belt city before his 25th birthday. But as Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert gloated Sunday night, there are no shortcuts, in life or the NBA. Nowitzki spurned last summer’s free agent-palooza to stay with the aging Mavericks — taking less money to do so — and was rewarded with a title. James turned his back on the city that revered him for what was essentially an AllStar team, only to discover that talent alone doesn’t win championships, and the best team on paper is not always the one left holding the trophy. “This is one of the unique teams in NBAhistory. Because it wasn’t about high-flying star power,” Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said. “Come on, how often do we have to hear about the LeBron James reality show and what he is or isn’t doing? When are people going to talk about the purity of our game and what these guys accomplished? That’s what’s special.” Watching James go home empty-handed made millions of fans in and outside of Cleveland feel better. But it won’t dim the spotlight on James and his sidekicks, or lessen the pressure. If anything, the scrutiny only will get worse, as people start asking not when James will win a title, but whether he can.

Bicyclists using a public roadway are considered operators of motor vehicles and are responsible for observing all traffic laws. With few exceptions, there is only one road and it is up to motorists and bicyclists to treat each other with care and respect. Adherence to the law is the foundation of respect.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING – Avon Park, Lake Placid and Sebring “hams” will join with thousands of other Amateur Radio operators showing off their emergency capabilities during the weekend of June 2526. Over the past year, the news has been full of reports of ham radio operators providing critical communications during emergencies across America including the recent Midwestern and Alabama tornados, crippling blizzards in the north and the current flooding along the Mississippi, Missouri and Ohio rivers. When Congress established the Amateur Radio Service one of the primary reasons was to provide a trained and practiced pool of radio operators for just such emergencies. Locally, when shelters are opened for storms, Highlands County Amateurs provide communications between emergency government officials and shelter staff using portable radios and “repeaters” located around the county. Amateurs also provide emergency communications for wider-spread disasters, often serving as the only way to get word out from isolated earthquake, hurricane or tsunamihit areas using frequencies that carry their signals across oceans and continents with both calls for help or reassurances of safety. Over the weekend of June 25-26, the public will have a chance to meet and talk with local ham radio operators and see for themselves what the Amateur Radio Service is all about. The Highlands County Amateur Radio Club will be operating five “ham” radio stations from the shores of Lake Istokpoga beginning Saturday afternoon and running through Sunday at 11 a.m. One of those stations will be reserved for visitors interested in the hobby to make actual radio contacts with other stations around the country and the world, and will be equipped for voice or computer keyboard-to-keyboard communications. Club spokespersons suggest Saturday afternoon as the best time to visit the site at Istokpoga Park, near the boat ramp entrance off U.S. 98. More than 35,000 hams from across the United States will be holding public demonstrations of emergency communications abilities over that weekend. This annual event, called “Field Day,” is the climax of the weeklong “Amateur Radio Week” sponsored by the ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio. Using only emergency power supplies, ham operators will erect antennas and set-up emergency radio stations in parks, shopping malls, schools and backyards around the country. Their slogan, “When All Else Fails, Ham Radio Works,” is more than just words to the hams as they prove they can send messages in many forms without the use of phone systems, Internet or any other infrastructure that can be compromised in a crisis. “We hope that people will come and see for themselves, this is not your grandfather’s radio anymore,” said Fred Seely, Highlands County chairperson for the event. “The communications that ham radio people can quickly create have saved many lives when other systems failed or were overloaded. And besides that – it’s fun!” He invited the public to come and see ham radio’s new capabilities and learn how to get their own FCC radio license before the next disaster strikes. There are more than 650,000 Amateur Radio licensees in the U.S., and more than 2.5 million around the world. Through the ARRL’s Amateur Radio Emergency Services program, ham volunteers provide emergency communications for thousands of state and local emergency response agencies, all for free. To learn more about Amateur Radio, go to www.emergency-radio.org. The public is most cordially invited to come, meet and talk with the hams.

Now he’s letting others in on his secrets as he teams up with Hellmann’sand Best Foodsto help America build the perfect sandwich. “Everyone has an opinion about how to make the perfect sandwich, from the must-have ingredients to the highly personal sandwich architecture,” said Flay. “No matter the sandwich recipe, I always use Hellmann’smayonnaise to bring out the best in my sandwich, plus I have to cut the bread diagonally to make it just right. That’s my idea of a perfect sandwich.” Here are some of Flay’s tips on how he adds his personal touch to sandwiches:Thick, crusty breads like ciabatta are great for sandwiches to help complement softer ingredients like tomatoes and cheese.Bring a crunch to your sandwich with vegetables like sliced cucumber or fennel. Not only do they add a fresh taste, they won’t wilt when they come in contact with condiments.Add bright colors to the sandwich with parsley leaves, finely diced red onions, or green, yellow and red peppers.Don’t be afraid to experiment with new flavors. Jazz up your sandwich with a little cranberry relish, chopped, toasted nuts, lemon-basil or even a little thousand island coleslaw — the sky’s the limit. Here are some of Bobby’s savory sandwich creations.

C M Y K DearAbby: I come from a Third World country and live as a legal alien in San Francisco. I grew up reading great American authors, watching American TVand Hollywood movies, so I thought I had a good understanding about your Western societal structure. I have made many friends in this wonderful city, but the women here drive me crazy. I am a romantic at heart, but not desperate. However, my gestures are often misunderstood. One time I gave a feminist/radical girl a book about the feminist movement and she freaked out. She said she wasn’t looking for anything serious and didn’t want me to expect anything from her. Abby, it was just a book, not a diamond ring. I was in a relationship for four months. It was fine, until I told her I was madly in love with her. She freaked out and said she didn’t want to get tied down. I was dumbfounded and heartbroken. Afew months later, I started dating again and met an incredible woman who made my heart skip a beat. I enjoyed being with her so much I sent flowers to her workplace. She freaked out, too. Am I being completely ignorant to believe in romance? Or is there something wrong with me? – California Dreamer DearDreamer: There isn’t anything “wrong” with you, but I suspect you’re coming on a bit too strong, too quickly. Life in the United States isn’t the way it’s depicted in novels, television and Hollywood movies. Getting to know someone takes time – so take more time before declaring you’re madly in love. And the next time you feel the urge to give someone flowers, send them to her home because some professional women prefer to keep their private lives separate from where they work. DearAbby: My husband of 27 years has been having chemotherapy for lymphoma off and on for two years. Friends and neighbors call him often. However, not one of them has ever asked me how I’m doing. I understand the awkwardness of emotional conversations, but it deeply disappoints me that people act as though my husband’s cancer doesn’t affect me. What’s the best way for us to care for each other? We are all so fragile and vulnerable. – Hurting Too in Hawaii DearHurting Too: I agree. The answer is for people to realize that life-threatening diseases affect the entire family, not just the patient. In your case, if someone asks how your husband is doing, you should say, “’John’is doing well so far, but his illness has been very stressful for me. Thanks for asking.” It may start the conversation you want to have. However, if it doesn’t, you should check out the American Cancer Society’s website, www.cancer.org, which lists the location of support groups everywhere. It would be helpful for you emotionally and spiritually to join a group of caregivers who are coping with what you have been experiencing. DearAbby: An acquaintance recently announced that she’s pregnant. None of us were aware that she was in a relationship. Is there a polite way to find out who the father is? – Just Curious in New Mexico DearCurious: I can think of two ways: The first is to wait for her to tell you. The other is to just ask. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. For an excellent guide to becoming a better conversationalist and a more sociable person, order How to Be Popular. Send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $6 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby … Popularity Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. (Postage is included in the price.) From the beginning of FlyLady, I have always insisted on our main rule: No whining allowed! I don’t believe that I have ever told you the reasons behind this FLY-Decree. We have all caught ourselves in a whining mode. When was the last time you let those words ooze out of your mouth? This morning. Why do people feel the need to whine? Let’s explore this for a bit. Frustration: The house is getting on your nerves. People seem to be piling on your workload. You don’t feel like you are accomplishing anything. So you just have to let out this frustration so the world knows that you are being mistreated. Think about this for a minute. This is a cry for help, but you don’t know how to ask for it. You are feeling sorry for yourself too. You want someone to listen, but that is not happening, because let’s face it, no one hears a whiner. This is also a martyred attitude rearing its ugly head. Depression: The pressure of the house, your schedule and the things left undone are slowly digging your grave. The whine is another cry for help: Even if it is unproductive. You have never been taught any other way to seek help. I want to help you change this fruitless behavior. When you realize how this has no effect on your family, but to tune you out, then you can initiate productive behaviors. It all goes back to being a martyr. Attention Seeking Behavior: We have all done this; our cries for help fall on barren ears, because we have cried wolf too many times. Just like the little shepherd boy; his cries were ignored because he had been seeking attention. It is only when we give ourselves the attention that we need and we are not searching for outside attention that our requests for help will be answered. I know you don’t believe me, but changing this one characteristic in yourself will change your life. Why do you think I want you to FLY? Self-Pity: This one is probably the most destructive, because you act pitiful and unloved. If the truth were known, you are unloved, but it is not by your family, but by yourself. You are not taking care of your own needs first. If you don’t love yourself first, you are unable to love others to fullest extent of your being. This is not being selfish. Who is going to take care of you, if you don’t take care of yourself? We have all heard Rodney Daingerfield’s famous line; “I get no respect!” The reason he has no respect, is that he does not respect himself. Demand it of yourself and you will not allow disrespect from others. This does not happen overnight. As he whines to his audience, it may seem funny to us at the time, but in real life, our families just turn down the volume. Our whining becomes background noise. Would you like to see their ears perk up? I can teach you how to get their attention and it is so easy. Stop your whining cold turkey. This is easy. Now that you can see and hear your effects on your family, you can stop yourself from doing this. Now here is the fun part. You can blow them right out of the water by setting an example and doing what needs to be done with a cheerful attitude and out of love for your family. Even if you are not feeling very cheerful at the time: Bite your lip and put a smile on your lovely face, just for the fun of it. The results will reinforce this happy attitude and you will start to feel the inner change in yourself. When you start FLYing, housework no longer is a chore; something to be dreaded.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PAGE News-Sun Wednesday, June 15, 2011 FAMILYFEATURES Grilling can bring so much more to the table than basic brats and burgers. In these recipes, cookbook author and celebrity chef Nick Stellino uses a few key ingredients that add new dimensions of flavor to seafood, steak and even salad. He calls on olive oil and vinegars from Pompeian to make savory marinades and zesty seasonings that will make you truly savor the grilling season. Olive oil, a key component of the Mediterranean Diet, is a great way to follow the 2010 USDADietary Guidelines for Americans, which urge people to cut back on saturated fats and recommend an increase in monounsaturated fats. For more of Chef Stellino’s recipes, as well as how-to videos, visit www.pompeian.com and “Like” Pompeian on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Pompeian.
