Ernest Gene Slover, 51, turned himself in to the Orlando Police Department on Monday, and is awaiting extradition back to Highlands County on charges stemming form the death of Stephen Mahaffey, 24, also of Sebring. According to a press release from the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office, Slover, who lived on Triumph Drive in Sebring at the time of Mahaffey’s death, is accused of distributing a controlled substance at a party at his residence on Nov. 7, 2010. An autopsy conducted by the District 10 Medial Examiner determined that Mahaffey died from an overdose of the same controlled substance, a morphine and ethanol mixture, according to the HCSO Public Information Officer, Nell Hays.

At its core the discussion was about the balance o f power between school boards and school superintendents. It began when board member Andy Tuck said tha t while he had been told a school board has to approve a school superintendent’s recommendations for hire unless there was “good cause” to reject a candidate, he felt the board should pass ove r Guthrie and Haley. The good cause, said Tuck, was poor performance as evidenced by Florida Comprehensive Assessmen t Test scores. He was concerned that the transfers would send a bad message to the individuals currently working to become assistant principals as it took two positions out of competition. “I feel assistant principals should be on their way up,” Tuck said. “That’s why I won’t be supporting (this recommendation). There were 20-plus applicants very qualified for assistant principal. What’s it going to do for thei r morale? I respectfully have a problem with these two candidates.” Tuck made it clear he was looking at the larger, generic picture and had nothing against either man in question.

This doesn’t mean every nominee has been a professional. It does mean nominees have, in some significant way, touched children’s lives or created a needed support system or permanent program to help children. Past nominees have included Edna Jackson, who raised 21 children — 14 of them foster children; John Chess of the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit; and Norma Wynn, a correctional officer and mentor at the Avon Park Youth Academy. Past recipients of the Champion for Children Award include Linda Crowder, founder and director of the Children’s Museum of the Highlands; Velma Lumpkin, executive director of the Avon Park Community Child Development Center; and Doris Gentry Hawthorn and Ruth Handley, who in 2000 were the first to receive the Judge Clifton M. Kelly Champion for Children Award. The recipient of the award is announced every year during a fundraising gala.

There were 128 kid finishers on Saturday, and 413 adults and 49 relay teams who completed the race on Sunday. “We really try to spoil our participants,” said Race Director Cherie Starr. “That makes our race popular. “The turnout was a little better than we expect, but what was really interesting was the crowd at the Sebring Civic Center at the finish line. There were over 2,000 spectators out there, and we did not anticipate that,” Starr said. “That shows that the race is becoming a spectator event as well as a participant event this year.” The Heartland Triathlon moved out of the Sebring Chamber of Commerce and into its own non-profit organTriathlon once again a success More pain at the pump Skimmers stealing card info News-Sun photo by KATARASIMMONS Eileen Bloom runs her debit card on Tuesday to pay for her gas.

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING — According to Nell Hays, Public Information Officer of the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office, several individuals throughout the county has had their debit card information stolen by gas station “skimmers.” “Right now, another organization is handling the investigation, but I can confirm that we had had some active skimmers in the area,” Hays said on Tuesday. Here’s how the scam works. Askimmer puts a electronic device on the inside of a gas pump. When someone swipes their card to pay for their gas, the device “skims” the card number, expiration date and verification code off of the card before it is processed. The skimmer is in the area and is either taking pictures as the individual keys in their PIN number or has a camera on a pole close by that sends out the pictures. After just a few hours, the skimmer removes the devices, having plenty of cards and PIN numbers. “There are only three companies in the world that make keys for the gas pump doors giving access to the Be careful when entering your PIN See SKIMMERS, page 7A News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE A pack of triathletes pedal hard Sunday as they climb the hill on Manatee Drive during the Heartland Triathlon.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID — Congressman Vern Buchanan recently presented John Mast, 88, of Lake Placid with corrected Army discharge papers and a host of other military awards at a small ceremony at the Sarasota Federal Building. Mast served in World War II in the African theater of the war from May to September of 1943, anxiously awaiting orders that would engage his Company in the “real” action in Europe. “We were just biding our time in Africa,” Mast said. “We did a lot of training drills and hiking to prepare for combat. We also took a 1,000-mile truck ride over the four-month period from Oran, Algeria, to Bizerte, Tunisia, then back to Oran, only to get right back on a boat in Oran and return to Bizerte.” The real action they sought soon followed, though, when the untested troops were sent to Italy, landing on Red Beach under heavy enemy fire on September 11, 1943. The ship that delivered them to Italy was sunk later that afternoon by a German dive bomber. Mast continued on the front lines in Italy for the next three months, advancing through Avalino and Venefro before continuing on to Anzio Beach. Mast was part of the 84th Chemical Mortar Battalion and was on one of the first landing craft on Anzio Beach during the initial invasion on January 22, 1944. “There were hardly any German soldiers on Anzio Beach,” Mast said. “When we landed, they took off. Our biggest problem on Anzio was Anzio Annie, a German railway gun positioned in the mountains above us. She would stick her nose out of a cave, fire, and then move back in.” Mast’s squad lived in foxholes a few miles inland of Anzio Beach for the next two months until he was wounded by shrapnel from an enemy tank attack on March 7, 1944. The actual wound was minor, but the back injury from the fall he took when he was shot resulted a three-month hospitalization in Italy, followed by an additional twomonth hospitalization in the United States. It was in that first hospital in Naples, Italy, where he was awarded his Purple Heart. After his return and subsequent hospitalization in the United States, Mast was honorably discharged from the Army on August 7, 1944. His discharge papers didn’t reflect his combat duty or his Purple Heart. The country was still at war, and he was told to come back after the war was over to get his papers corrected. Sixty-three years and six kids later, after the death of his wife, Hazel, in 2007, Mast decided he wanted to get his affairs in order, including correcting his military discharge papers. He enlisted the help of his daughter, Grace Baty, of Sarasota, to assist him in navigating the military bureaucracy. Baty’s first attempt came to a dead end when she was informed that her father’s military records had been destroyed in a fire in St. Louis, Mo., in 1973. “I felt like I’d hit a wall,” Baty said, “Until Sandy Beckley, the director of the new Sarasota National Veterans Cemetery, told me that Dad’s military records might be included with his Veterans Administration records since he’s a disabled veteran.” The Veterans Administration records confirmed her father’s recollections and corresponded exactly with his entries in the New Testament he carried with him throughout the war. “Dad is in very good shape, but he is 88,” Baty said. “I wanted to see if we could possibly speed up the lengthy process of getting his documents corrected so I asked my Congressman, Vern Buchanan, if he would submit the documents to the Page 2ANews-SunWednesday, June 22, 2011www.newssun.com June 18 41417374250x:2Next jackpot $12 millionJune 15 153642464853x:2 June 11 41027415253x:3 June 20 36172134 June 19 27121728 June 18 912202235 June 17 613182536 June 20 (n) 0018 June 20 (d) 0897 June 19 (n) 7743 June 19 (d) 4205 June 20(n) 412 June 20 (d) 681 June 19 (n) 479 June 19(d) 366 June 17 69253918 June 14 410363816 June 10 828334218 June 7 819224322 June 18 1221223841 PB: 18 PP: 2Next jackpot $48 millionJune 15 1920384143 PB: 29 PP: 4 June 11 1618273650 PB: 8 PP: 3 Note: Cash 3 and Play 4 drawings are twice per day: (d) is the daytime drawing, (n) is the nighttime drawing.

They have lived the majority of their lives in substandard living conditions. Four years ago, Dawn Posillipo and her family completed their required sweat equity hours and have been on the waiting list for a Habitat home ever since. Posillipo and her family are active members of First Baptist Church of Sebring and often offer to volunteer at local Habitat events. On Saturday, Dawn, John, and their three children received the keys to their first home, which is located at Mason’s Ridge. Alan Wildstein of Alan Jay Automotive Network presented the family with their long-awaited keys. Tears were flowing as the crowd of 75 guests and supporters listened to Dawn express her gratitude to the volunteers, Habitat staff, and Wildstein for his sponsorship of their home. Their three-bedroom, two-bath home was designed by students enrolled in South Florida Community College’s drafting and design program. Additionally, the home received an Energy Star and Florida Green Build Certification. The Posillipo-Lamperti family is the eighth family to move into a home at Mason’s Ridge and is one of four homes sponsored by Alan Jay Automotive Network.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING — The Strut Against Cancer event benefiting Sebring High School student and cancer fighter Lindsey Hammortree Friday night was a betterthan-expected success. Two of Hammortree’s friends, Gina Haley and Madison Harris, created the event as a tribute to their friend as well as to raise funds to help with the Hammortree family’s expenses. Twenty-four young ladies from middle and high school strutted for the cause at First Baptist Church. Astylist from Cuttin Up Salon in Sebring, Lisa Baker, donated her time and skills to the ladies to make sure each was picture perfect on the runway. Haley and Harris, along with other contributors and volunteers, spent weeks preparing for the event. Guests enjoyed sweets and treats throughout the show. “The Palms and Mae Lee’s are a couple of the places that provided food and Cracker Box provided the tea,” said Harris. Belk’s and Beall’s provided all the clothing for the models during the show. Silent auctions items included a Malibu Tan package and Starbucks gifts and coupons. Hammortree, who is currently in a remission home here in Sebring, was thrilled about the event and was touched by her friends’ effort. Haley spoke excitedly about the funds that had been raised from the event. “We raised over $6,000,” Haley said early Monday afternoon. Haley later reported tha t the number had changed dramatically. “I need to make a correction on that number. From the ticket sales, raffle, auction and sponsorship we raised $6,452, but people are still cutting checks,” said Haley. “I’m sure we will be over $7,000.” The final total turned ou t to be $7,537.

We are already planning on giving back to signage and work out at Highlands Hammock, that was one of our goals,” Starr said. One of the other events surrounding the Tri was the popular Friday Night Pasta Bash. “It was our best one ever, and we did not have a guest speaker at the Pasta Bash this year,” an exhausted Starr added. Starr was especially grateful to all of the sponsors, and pointed out that the Sebring Public Works Department once again did an outstanding j ob of handling the road closures needed for the weekend without costing the Triathlon a dime, and also that TD Bank had stepped in at the last minute and provided enough Gatorade for the athletes, who had to brave hot and humid conditions in both the kids and adult events. According to Starr, one of the areas that needed work this year was the amount of volunteers. “Volunteers are what makes this work. The ones we had this year were great, but we need more for next year. We hope to approach more groups next year and recruit their assistance. This is really a county-wide event and deserves a county-wide approach,” Starr said. Triathlon Board member and founder Patrick High was looking for feedback during the event, and said in an email that both athletes and spectators were upbeat. According to High, one participant stated that “The TriKidz event Saturday morning far exceeded expectations. Our children were treated to a 1st class event with tremendous local community support.” Additionally, High reported that another spectator commended both the organizers and volunteers for a job well done. “This was our first time at the Heartland Tri and we were more than impressed. We will ALLbe back next year for sure and have been talking it up since we returned home. Your team of volunteers were nothing short of amazing. Thank you for a memorable event and looking forward to 2012. I coach a group up in Clermont and I usually check out races before I tell my team. I can definitely say I will be putting this one down on our calendar for next year,” the message to High read.

C M Y K All of this is to sound a warning. Central Florida is about as flammable as the Hindenburg Dirigible was in 1937, when it burst into flames killing dozens within seconds. Signs of our own potential dangers began early in the year. In January a muck fire in the Arbuckle Creek area began. It was still smoldering months later. In February two fires in the Henscratch Road, Grand Concourse area threatened six homes and burned down one. In the first week of May homes in Lorida were threatened by fire. About a week later a brush fire began in a residential backyard behind Home Depot. Within seconds it turned into a major blaze, which was only contained by the quick response of West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department. Roughly two weeks later a blown transformer set fire to an empty wooded lot off Heron Road, creating a blaze that took an hour to beat down. The Florida Division of Forestry is asking all of us to be extra careful. It would be wise to heed that advise. Already 2011 ranks number 11 on the all time bad fire year list — and we’re only into June. According to a chart released by Sean Luchs, state meteorologist, of the top 11 worst wild fire years in Florida, seven have occurred since 1999. So far in 2011, there have been 3,427 fires burning a combined 194,271 acres. The worst year on record was 1989, when 7,175 fires burned 645,331 acres. There are things we can all do to see we don’t set a new record, and to protect our property if the awful happens. If you live in the country and are surrounded by scrub, be sure to clear an area around your house and out buildings. Be careful of any activity involving sparks and open flames. This Fourth of July, for example, use fireworks carefully — and never in areas of dry grass. Keep a bucket of water or a fire extinguisher at hand. Don’t smoke in the woods. Don’t throw cigarettes out of your vehicle. Don’t build open campfires on the ground. Be careful when barbecuing on a grill or using a fire pit. If you see a wild fire, no matter how small it might seem, call 911 immediately. The sooner firefighters arrive, the better a chance they have of stopping a disaster. Florida has always been a place of extremes, with lakes that shrink and expand as droughts follow flooding. With foresight, self-discipline and good sense we can all help to avoid the kind of fires that have ravaged Arizona recently, keeping ourselves safe until the rains finally come. That reveals another oddity of living in Florida — as destructive as hurricanes can be, there comes a time when we all pray for one, simply because a hurricane is a great way to break a drought quickly. This summer might be o ne of those times we hope for a Category 1 storm’s direct hit, or a brush with a Category 3. You have to love living in a place where hurricanes solve problems, as well as create them. Now, put out that match.

It is hot, and likely to get hotter. Thunderstorms are few and far between. They bring more lightning than rain. Last week, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley signed legislation (HB 56) that requires the use of EVerify by all state employers. The law also gives Alabama some of the country’s strongest illegalimmigration enforcement tools. Over the last decade, illegal immigration has increased in Alabama by 325 percent. In a statement that underlines how over-immigration hurts American workers State Senator Scott Beason, a HB 56 cosponsor, said, “This is a jobs bill. We have a problem with an illegal workforce that displaces Alabama workers. We need to put those people back to work. That's the No.1 priority.” Another supporter, Republican state Rep. John Merrill said he didn’t hesitate to back the legislation because it is “good for Alabama” and will reduce illegal immigration into the state while “providing equal opportunities for all because who want to come to Alabama legally.” HB 56 requires all businesses, public and private, to begin using E-Verify effective April 1, 2012. Businesses that do not comply face suspension of their license and loss of employee expensing for state income tax purposes. Other features of HB 56 will create misdemeanors for hiring day-laborers when Americans are available, failing to carry an alien registration card, producing fake ID and aiding and abetting illegal immigrants. It also will ban illegal aliens from attending state universities and colleges as well as prohibit sanctuary city policies. In an effort to determine what the exact costs are of education for illegal alien children, HB 56 requires elementary and secondary schools to request a birth certificate for all enrolling students. That provision will enable Alabama to determine whether such minors were born outside of the U.S. or are children of illegal aliens requiring English-as-a-Second-language classes. Detractors like the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center’s legal director Mary Bauer quickly labeled HB 56 “meanspirited, racist, unconstitutional and going to be costly.” But Bauer and others who oppose strong immigration enforcement measures are tilting at windmills. Enforcement is high on the list of states’government priorities. As many as 30 are considering or currently drafting legislation similar to Alabama’s for the simple reason that they are broke and can no longer afford to provide services and jobs to illegal aliens. Rep. Micky Hammon, the measure’s original sponsor, added that the bill was carefully drafted to be sound constitutionally. Challenges to the Arizona E-Verify law may have encouraged Alabama’s meticulous care in determining its language. More important, two recent Supreme Court decisions have upheld states’ rights to enforce immigration laws. In 5-3 decisions, the high court sided with Arizona and Hazleton (Pa.) by allowing enforcement of local laws that prohibit employers from knowingly hiring illegal aliens and confirmed that state governments can force the use of E-Verify even though Congress has never mandated its use. About the court’s decision last month on the Arizona case, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote: “(Federal law) expressly reserves to the states the authority to impose sanctions on employers hiring unauthorized workers, through licensing and similar laws. In exercising that authority, Arizona has taken the route least likely to cause tension with federal law.” With the handwriting on the wall, business lobbies like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce should work with Congress for a national bill instead of allowing each state to have its own version of E-Verify legislation.

I would like to add to the list: Today I got a paper cut on my hand, that was George Bush’s fault. Yesterday, I missed a three-foot birdie putt; that was George Bush’s fault. The day before, I went to clean my windshield, but I was out of windshield washer fluid; that was George Bush’s fault. Two days ago, I was online and got disconnected in the middle of something; there is no doubt that was George Bush’s fault. I am so glad that I don’t have to take any personal responsibility for my actions. I have learned this from my President and those who blindly follow him. It’s a pretty cool way to live. Mike Lee Lake Placid People who come to drink dont shopEditor: It saddens me so to read of all the suicides and attempted suicides right here in Highlands County – people who are depressed, lonely, overwhelmed, and think there is no where to turn, no hope. It also saddens me to hear that our beautiful, downtown Sebring voted to bring an alcoholic nightlife when suicide is at an all-time high. Alcohol is a depressant as well as a strain on a depressed economy. It is a kerosene to the fires of hopelessness in people considering suicide, to strained marriages, broken lives and empty wallets. It drains the wallet before it even gets home to pay the bills. People who come downtown to drink, do not come downtown to shop. They come to drink, to party, and to drive home impaired. What saddens me most is that elected officials show no respect for God Himself, as to encroach upon Him and His places of worship. Whether or not the church has failed our Lord and county doesn’t change the fact that Jesus has never failed anyone. For that fact alone, these officials will face Almighty God for their ignorance and disrespect; and for considering our voice unimportant, unneeded, and old-fashioned in light of their own selfish desires. Jesus should be given pre-eminence in our city over alcohol. It is sad that so many people think the only answer to the burdens of life is either found in a bottle or in ending the precious life that Jesus gives. Burdens are lifted at Calvary. So many suicides points to the fact that people need the Lord. The answer to life’s problems is found in Jesus Christ alone. I can personally testify to that fact, because He delivered me from that demon called suicide 40 years ago.; and He will deliver anyone else who will turn to Him for help. And He alone can bless in a depressed economy. But, again, He must have the pre-eminence. Jo Antley SebringNot a good decision to allow bars on CircleEditor: When I heard that the city council had voted against having bars and nightclubs (called entertainment) on the Circle, I was thanking God for the courage they had. Then lately, in order that two other council members could have their say, a vote was taken again. This time their votes made the difference and it was voted to have bars and nightclubs (entertainment) on the Circle. I was very sorry to read in the paper of that decision. There are three churches very close to the Circle and I do not understand how bars and such can legally be that close to churches. We know that there will be more rowdiness, fighting, drunkenness, crime. and other evils as a result of these bars, etc. Is this entertainment? The police will have more work. Sebring is celebrating its Centennial this next year. Big things will be planned. Will George Sebring be remembered? Yes, most likely and he should be. As I understand, Mr. Sebring was a fine Christian man, and desired to have the city of Sebring reflect good, moral and Christian values. What would he think to have his lovely Circle a place for bars for “so called entertainment?” I think this decision does not honor the man whose name the city bears. I am praying that this ordinance would be changed and I encourage all believers and churches to pray that this would be rescinded. Elaine Douglas Sebring BouquetDeputies help with roadside assistanceEditor: Kudos to the Highlands County Sheriff’s Department. I am an 86-year young woman who was recently stranded on U.S. 27 with a flat tire. My road assistance number had been disconnected, unbeknownst to me, and I was unable to reach a family member to request help. As I was sitting contemplating my next move, a very young sheriff’s officer stopped to see if everything was OK. When I explained my dilemma, he again tried to call the road assistance number with the same results. Deputy Richard Williams then called for assistance and when Deputy Justin Clemons arrived to divert traffic, Deputy Williams proceeded to change my tire for me. At no time did either act as if they were inconvenienced; they were kind, respectful and well mannered the entire time. I feel both officers deserve to be acknowledged for their kindness and Sheriff Benton needs to be proud of the training these officers have received through her department. I want to say thank you again to Officers Williams and Clemons. Winifred M. Carlton Lake Placid

C M Y K By BILLKACZOR Associated PressTALLAHASSEE — Antigerrymandering advocates used the Republican-controlled Florida Legislature’s first public meeting on redistricting Monday to say what they think’s wrong with the process. They argued that lawmakers should draw up proposed maps for legislative and congressional districts first and then get public comment on how they might be changed. Lawmakers don’t plan on drawing maps until after they hold public meetings through Sept. 1 in 25 more cities and towns. “Where are the maps?” asked American Civil Liberties Union regional director Susan Watson. “Make a map now, present it to the public now and start a meaningful conversation. ... We don’t want fake hearings and meaningless talk.” Lawmakers didn’t immediately respond because legislative leaders have ordered them not to comment during the meetings, but they defended their procedures later at a news conference. “Are you going to be able to talk to us?” Tallahassee resident Bob Fulford asked during the meeting. After a brief silence, House Redistricting Chairman Will Weatherford (R-Wesley Chapel) said he would respond only after Fulford finished his comments including an observation that present districts “look like the original gerrymander.” “There is no gag order,” Weatherford then said. “This is a listening tour.” Lawmakers broke their silence only once more during the meeting when Sen. Rene Garcia, R-Hialeah, insisted on defending the honor of Miami-Dade County after a woman said she left there because “That is not my country anymore.” Weatherford and his Senate counterpart, though, had plenty to say to reporters after the meeting including a response to several critics who had urged them to speed up the redistricting process. They included Deidre Macnab, president of the Florida League of Women Voters. She said it appears the Legislature won’t finish its work until March, leaving little time for legal challenges and a federal Justice Department review before candidates begin qualifying next June. “Florida deserves elections where the people have time to understand their choices,” Macnab said. “This timeline only benefits incumbents.” Sen. Don Gaetz (RNiceville) later said it’s not necessarily true lawmakers won’t vote until February or March. He said there’s no reason they won’t vote sooner at least in committee. Gaetz said the public will have a chance to comment on the maps at meetings in Tallahassee before they go to a vote although lawmakers may not take their show on the road again. “We live in the internet age,” Gaetz said. “You don’t have to get in a car and drive across town or across the state to participate.” The two redistricting leaders noted the public can comment at any time and citizens even can submit their own maps on the Legislature’s redistricting website. Fort Walton Beach tea party activist Henry Kelly was one of the few speakers who defended the Legislature’s approach, saying he’s “glad to start with a blank slate.” Mcnab also urged lawmakers to drop their code of silence and stop using taxpayer money to fight a pair of state constitutional amendments on legislative and congressional redistricting that voters adopted last year. The House has joined two members of Congress in a court challenge to the congressional redistricting amendment. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, June 22, 2011Page 5A Biker Benefit helps with recovery expensesSEBRING — Biker Benefit for Dawn Murphy, badly hurt in crash near Leesburg Bike Fest April 9, with trucker Zee and Nancy.

OBITUARIES Medler By BILLKACZOR Associated PressTALLAHASSEE — Two state forest rangers trapped by shifting flames died while fighting a wildfire that also injured two others near Jasper in north Florida, officials said Tuesday. The rangers were working Monday to stop a rekindled blaze called the Blue Ribbon Fire in Hamilton County on the Georgia line, one of more than 400 wildfires currently burning around Florida in one of the busiest fire seasons in years. The rangers killed were 31-year-old Josh Burch of Lake City and 52-yearold Brett Fulton of White Springs, said Sterling Ivey, a spokesman for the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Officials say the injured rangers, Robert Marvin and Stephen Carpenter, suffered smokeand heat-related injuries while trying to help their fellow firefighters. They were treated and released from hospitals in Lake City and Gainesville. The Blue Ribbon Fire started June 16 and had been declared contained before dry conditions allowed the fire to flare up again Monday “Josh and Brett were cutting a fire line around the fire,” Ivey said. “The wind changed and they became trapped by the flames and couldn’t get out.” Both men were married. Fulton had two grown children and Burch had young two sons, ages 4 and 5, Ivey said. Burch had been with the department’s Division of Forestry for ten years and Fulton for 11 years. Gov. Rick Scott told CBS’s “The Early Show” on Tuesday that his “heart goes out to the families.” “It’s tragic, but pray for rain,” Scott said. “It looks like we’re going to start getting more rain tomorrow.” Scott said the rains are expected to begin in north Florida and then in the southern part of the state by the weekend. “So that will damp this out and stop this,” Scott said. Forestry officials, though, have warned that lightning accompanying the rains may briefly worsen the situation before trees and underbrush become damp enough to resist burning. Firefighters have fought more than 1,500 wildfires since May 1 that have burned nearly 200,000 acres across the state. That’s made this one of the busiest wildfire seasons in recent Florida history. Florida firefighters have been facing an average of more than 31 new wildfires every day. Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam also expressed his sorrow “to the families and loved ones of the two courageous men who sacrificed their lives for the safety of others.” “We can rebuild the structures and restore the land, but the lives of these two heroes can never be replaced,” Putnam said in a statement.

C M Y K Member Bill Brantley strongly agreed with Tuck. “Assistant principal is a training position,” he said. “Are we going to retrain (Guthrie and Haley)? Otherwise they are blocking the way. I think it’s a bad idea — a principal’s safety net: if you don’t do well, become an assistant principal.” Board member Ronnie Jackson had a different perspective. “I could agree,” he said, “but in this case each served as assistant principal and were effective in the job before they became principals. Maybe being a principal was too much. They may not have the leadership skills for leading a whole faculty.” Ned Hancock also worried about morale, but from the point of view of the principals. “One of our greatest opportunities is to better train our administrators, but if it doesn’t work out, pushing them out the door sends a bad message. I may not agree with (superintendent) Mr. (Wally) Cox all the time, but I agree with him here.” Hancock then reminded the board that “we didn’t have many people stepping up to the job (when they did). It would be tough if they were forced out.” Cox pointed out that neither he nor any member of the board had ever been a principal of a Florida high school, so it was hard to understand the pressures and difficulties principals face. The fact that there is a high turnover, he said, is an indication of the stress. “Good cause would not include moving someone from principal to assistant principal,” Cox said. “(They had) tough assignments, both of these individuals worked hard. I do feel that they have a lot to contribute to the district. I disagree that they can’t play a useful role. They can be a part of an administrative team.” School board attorney John McClure warned the board that conflicts like this — a superintendent wanting one candidate, a school board in disagreement — “will become a major problem unless the FCATchanges as the only measure of success.” He said that by Florida statute the superintendent appoints and removes personnel, the board’s function in these cases is simply to approve the superintendent’s decision — in the same way many city charters divide the balance of power between a city manager and a city council. McClure also warned similar conflicts between superintendent and board in other counties had led to lawsuits, but “this an argument for the legislature, not the courts,” he said. Brantley said that what bothered him the most was being caught by surprise. He hadn’t heard about the changes in staffing before reading about in the press. “We were not informed,” he said. “I was shocked that we don’t have a larger voice.” Jackson forcefully argued to reform the interviewing process for school administrators. Agreater variety of people should be involved, he said, especially as the county has many retired principals, former board members and superintendents. He said the current search for a new principal at Sebring High School would be a perfect opportunity to improve and open up the process. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, June 22, 2011Page 7A Miller’s Central Air3x10.5 color 00009637 Follow the News-Sun on www.twitter.com/thenewssun www.facebook.com/newssun Continued from page 1A Skimmers at work in county inside. The keys can be bought off of the Internet cheaply,” Hays said. “What the skimmers do is approach a set of pumps away from the center areas and away from the front windows. They only need two or three hours worth of information to make it worth their while,” Hays said. Hays was not sure how many individuals in Highlands County were hit by the skimmers because the reports were going to the banks first, who then filed charges with the overseeing agency. “The banks are the ones who are the victims here. They credit back any unexplained charges if you report them in a timely manner, and they are the ones that press charges,” Hays said. Hays said that the best way to protect yourself from a skimmer was to stay diligent in reviewing your bank statements and to be aware of your surroundings. “Go to a central pump within view of the attendant inside. Cover your hand when you key in your pin and report any unexpected charges immediately,” Hays said. “I cannot encourage people enough to watch their bank statements closely. I would encourage them to look every day if they have access online to their accounts,” Hays said. Hays did not volunteer what stations were being targeted, but did state that customers at MidFlorida Credit Union were one of the groups that had experienced problems. “There are several banks in the county that are reporting problems, but I know for sure that MidFlorida has contacted our department,” Hays said. Representatives at the MidFlorida corporate offices had not returned phone calls by press time.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comBy all counts, the 6th Annual Heartland Triathlon was a major success with literally hundreds of athletes taking part. After a fun-filled Saturday with the Kids Tri, Sunday saw the adults get in on the action under a clear, blue morning sky. Beginning at 7:30 on the City Pier Beach, competitors raced into the water, with five-minute intervals between the various groupings. After the quarter-mile swim, it was a scamper up the beach to the first transition stage where helmets and shoes were donned and bicycles hopped onto for the 14mile ride. Down Lakeview Dr. they went, up US 27 before merging back onto Lakeview and then across the Scenic Hwy to Manatee. Taking a right onto Manatee, it was up and down a series of hills, into the wind, into the sun before working their way back to Lakeview to complete the arduous route. Hopping off the bikes at the second transition stage, helmets were dropped and the final 3.1-mile run was begun. Athletes from around the state were on hand, many serious triathlon competitors, with John Reback of Jupiter completing the circuit in just under one hour for the overall win in 59:05, while Justin McMurrer of Lehigh Acres was within a minute, at 59:48, for second pace among the 255-man finishing field. Jacksonville’s Jennifer Hanley-Pinto came in at 1:06.21 for the women’s win, among 158 finishers, with 14-year old Ciara Hopkins, of Clermont, taking second at 1:07.47. And while the names and locations of the finishers are plenty and show the widespread growth of this annual event, there were plenty of Highlands County’s own that took part, competed well and finished. Sebring’s Matthew Schult finished 14th among the men in 1:05.07 with recent Blue Streak cross-country star Connor Bauer timing out at 1:09.15 for 34th. Another Sebring resident, James Brown, was two spots back, in 36th, with a time of 1:09.26 before Lake Placid’s Darryl Wirick and Sebring’s Robert Swaine remained in the top 50, finishing 46th and 49th, respectively. Eight more area men finished within the top 100, including David Scheck (54th), Jerry Whidden (60), Randy Grice (62), Chris Doty (65), Evan Wilburn (79), Charles Best (87), Richard Birt (90) and Kenneth Koehler (96). Lake Placid’s Lawrence Luepschen finished just outside the top 100, at 101, in 1:17.22 and Bryant Mussleman of Avon Park, John Foy of Sebring, Michael Quigley and Jack Edgemon, both of Lake Placid, stayed in the top 125 at 112, 114, 115 and 117, respectively. Another 52 men from the Heartland finished the grueling endurance test. Darrell Jensen, Johnathan Lonsdale, Michael Farrow, Matthew Judson and Carlos Torres-Melendez all stayed in the top 150. Jose Ibanez, Edward Burnside, David Taylor, Renee Marin-Gomez, Bryan Price, Jeremy Freeze, Tyler Caton, Richard Percy, Jacob Cook, Joshua Bowyer, Lloyd Gulfan and Jose Ruiz rounded out the top 180. Dima Didenko, Tim Elder, Eric Zwayer, Isaac Palmer, Tyler Redick, Virgil McInvale, Chris Crow, John Milam, Scott Dressel, Marc Marasigan, Mason Whidden, Bert Cox and Michael Stewart were the next baker’s dozen to make their way across the finish line. Coming in over the next 10 minutes were Nick McGrath, Robert Bryant, Phillip Statler, Ed Oxer, Bill Jarrett, Harold Smith, Michael Lee, Brice Beck, Ford Turner, Carlos Javier Torres and Tariq Ausaf. Larry Jernigan, Brantley Beck, Todd Patterson, Mat t Sboto, Jose Concepcion, Gary Neal, German Soto, Cliff Ables, Timothy Cook, Matthew Hutchinson, Patrick Loper and Rob Moulds finished the field of Highlands County finishing men.

Heartland Triathlon a huge hit See TRI, Page 3B By STEVEN WINE Associated PressMIAMI — Jack McKeon was home in North Carolina watching his granddaughter’s softball game when the phone rang with a job offer. Always one to go against the grain, McKeon hopped on a plane bound for Florida to come out of retirement. At 80, he’s the second-oldest manager in major-league history and the oldest since 1950. “Why should experience get penalized?” he said Monday, shortly after being reintroduced as the Florida Marlins’manager. He led them to the World Series championship in 2003, retired two years later and figures he’s ready for a career comeback, despite his age. “Sometimes it gets blown out of proportion,” he said. “Maybe I’m not hip with the Twitter or Facebook or stuff like that, but outside of that I don’t have any problem disciplining my kids — or these players.” McKeon’s title is interim manager, and he’ll lead the team for the rest of the season. More than ever does the National League’s nickname seem apt: the senior circuit. The hiring created a buzz around baseball. “It’s very unusual, almost unthinkable,” said Rays manager Joe Maddon, who is 57. “God bless him,” said Yankees manager Joe Girardi, 46. “I would hope I’d have the energy at 80 years old to do that.” “I just hope I feel good enough to put my pajamas on, let alone manage,” said Tigers manager Jim Leyland, 66. The oldest big-league manager was Connie Mack, who led the Philadelphia Athletics in a straw hat and suit until 1950, when he was 87. McKeon will wear a ballcap and uniform with No. 25. McKeon made no mention Monday of Mack, but said he draws inspiration from 84year-old Joe Paterno, who will coach Penn State’s football team for a 46th season this year. “I’ve managed since I was 14 years old,” McKeon jok80-year-old McKeon is Marlins interim manager See MARLINS, Page 3B MCTphoto The Florida Marlins Jack McKeon, the clubs interim manager, talks to Emilio Bonifacio before the teams game against the Los Angeles Angels Monday.NASCAR This Week4B Associated PressMIAMI — Heat President Pat Riley says he will not return to coaching, and says the team has a strong leader in Erik Spoelstra. Riley spoke Tuesday at his annual end-of-season wrapup and touched on several topics including the disappointment of Miami’s loss in the NBA finals to the Dallas Mavericks. He lauded the Mavericks for winning the title, plus says he still believed the first Heat season with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh as teammates was “a great year.” Riley ended his Hall o f Fame coaching career in 2008, before tapping Spoelstra as his replacement. Spoelstra has a 148-98 record in three regular seasons, along with an 18-15 mark in postseason play. Pat Riley says he will not coach again MCTphoto Heat President Pat Riley insists he will not coach the team.

Lake Placid got into the mix with Kathy Edgemon coming in 55th at 1:26.00 before Sebring’s Emily Smith and Corien Peavy went 57 and 58, respectively. Jane Mikulecky, Sebring, Vickie Mussleman, Avon Park, and Laura Griffin, Sebring, went 61, 62 and 63, respectively, before Sebring’s Cari Byrd, Stephanie White, Allie Mann and Karin Doty all stayed in the top 80. Maggie Statler, Michelle Delaney, Whitney Lee, Denise Hines and Kathleen Hammock all finished in the top 100 for area ladies, with Jennifer Burnside just missing, by less than one minute, at 102. And there were plenty more finishing as Misty Forsee, Rebecca Luepschen, Joyce Statler, Alana Gordon, Caitlyn Moulds, Lila Didenko, Holly Cameron, Jill Jernigan, Martie Brooker, Aida Alentado, Monica Gregory, Colleen Boggs, Ginny Cox, Kelly Dressel and Susan Patterson came across and Crystal Vanderpool, Cheryl and Chelsi Graham, Deborah Summers, Mary Willis and Carmen Loper rounded out the Highland County women. Athletes not quite ready to tackle the whole course on their own, or in it with more of a team mindset, competed in the team relays with Sebring’s Q and Pops team of Quinlan and Marvin Wolfe winning the men’s contest ahead of another Sebring men’s team consisting of Josh Heflin, Nelson Pacheco and William Weindel. Eight women’s teams competed with Sebring’s Neon Dolphins, Megan Wolfe and Deanna Myers, winning over Team Nickell, Jerica Moore and Diane Travis, Tres Equis, Joan Siracuse, Debra Moyer and Diane Ziesenheim, and Precious Team, Jody Swaine, Marina Campos and Felicia Coke. Seven area teams took part in the Mixed Relay category, with Lake Placid’s Happy Feet, Efrain Herrera and Solesnir Pinillos, taking second, Go Sox of Sebring, Gina Cormier, Tim Boulay and Tina Holton, taking third and Sebring’s Gator Bait, Lisa Barnes and Andrew Marcy, placing fourth. In fifth was the Andrews team of Russell and Mary Andrews, and in sixth were Candace Pine and Tammy and John Snyder of Sebring’s Good Hands. Avon Park’s Palmetto Creek Farms team of Jim and Debbie Wood was eighth and the Sebring Gym Rats, Francisco Espaillat, Scott Harrington and Monica Holmes-Espaillat were ninth. In all, between the adults, kids and teams, more than 600 participants filled this year’s field, with nearly all seeing it through to completion. “The turnout was even better than we were expecting,” event organizer Cherie Starr was quoted as saying. “And the spectators were much greater in numbers than we thought there would be. There were more than 2,000 people at the finish line.” Which shows the growing interest and support for the ever-growing Heartland Triathlon. Atest of endurance, of will power and pushing ones self beyond, with the Heartland Triathlon standing as testament to the fact that it’s not where you finish, but merely that you take it on and see it through to the finish. Continued from 1B ingly said. “I’ll probably manage until I’m 95.” Actually, McKeon was 42 when he began managing in 1973. None of his current players were yet born, but none objected to the prospect of taking orders from someone older than their grandparents. “It doesn’t matter how old he is,” 21-year-old slugger Mike Stanton said. “He’s very respected in the game. We know what he has to offer, and that’s knowledge to bring to a younger clubhouse.” Injured pitcher Josh Johnson is the only current member of the Marlins who played for McKeon. Florida’s new old manager succeeds Edwin Rodriguez, who resigned Sunday. The change in leadership failed to inspire an immediate reversal by the Marlins, whose losing streak reached 11 games Monday night when they were beaten by the Los Angeles Angels, 2-1. But McKeon’s an octogenarian focused on October. He envisions his struggling team making the playoffs. “We’ll be all right,” he said. “We’ll turn this thing around. Don’t worry about it.” Like a lot of folks his age, McKeon enjoys smoking cigars and telling stories, preferably at the same time. But he gets restless at home and said lately he was spending 12 to 15 hours a day watching games on TV. His family gave the OK for him to return to the dugout. “My wife was probably happy to get me out of the house,” he said. The job means long days, late nights and a grueling travel schedule. McKeon figures he can do it because he has done it before. “It’s like riding a bike. Nothing to it,” he said. McKeon had been employed as a part-time special assistant to Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria. Team president David Samson said McKeon works harder than many people half his age and seems even sharper mentally than in 2003, when he came out of another retirement at age 72 to take over the Marlins in May. That hiring made him the oldest manager to take over a big league team, and he quickly revived the franchise. Florida beat the Yankees in the World Series, and McKeon received the NL manager of the year award for the second time. White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, who was McKeon’s third-base coach in 2003, isn’t surprised to see him in the dugout again. “He loves the game. He loves to be around media. He loves to be around players. He loves to compete against another team,” Guillen said. “I hope he can do the same thing he did in 2003.” That will be tough: The Marlins are 1-19 in June. But president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest, who also hired McKeon in 2003, said his old-school approach might be enough to spark a turnaround. “It’s going to be his way, and if you don’t like it, we’re going to find somebody else to do it his way,” Beinfest said. “Everybody pretty much knows where they stand. I think he’s fair. He can be tough. He can be loving. This is an experienced guy who knows what he is doing. There’s a lot of comfort in that. It will be a different approach. We’ll see if the guys respond.” White Sox outfielder Juan Pierre predicted they will. He played for McKeon on the 2003 World Series team. “He is definitely going to light a fire under the guys over there if he does the same thing he did with us,” Pierre said. “He’s up in age, but I guess he can still move around enough to get out there every day. God bless him for even wanting to come back at 80 years old.” After three successive winning seasons with Florida, McKeon retired as manager at age 74 in 2005. There had been a buzz for several years that he wanted to return to the dugout. “I had a little siesta,” he said. “After I laid out for a year and a half or two years, I started to miss it.” This is the second successive season Florida has changed managers in June. Rodriguez was a first-time major-league manager. In McKeon, the Marlins are going with experience — lots of it. “He has always been good with young kids, always. And they’ve got a young team,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. “It will keep him energized. And as long as he can get to a cigar, he’ll be fine.” AP Sports Writers Joe Kay in Cincinnati, Rick Gano in Chicago, Stephen Hawkins in Dallas and Colin Fly in Milwaukee contributed to this report.

Add butter and mix on low speed until incorporated, about 2 minutes. With machine running, slowly add up to 2/3 cup water, until mixture forms a dough around hook. Transfer dough to a lightly floured work surface and knead 5 minutes, or until smooth. Cut dough into 4 equal pieces. Form into disk shapes and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Place grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat gas or charcoal grill. On lightly floured work surface, roll out each piece of dough into an 8to 10-inch circle, about 1/8 inch thick. Brush each circle with olive oil. Grill for 4 minutes on each side. Remove piadini from the grill and let cool slightly. Combine ricotta cheese and lemon zest in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Spread each piadina with 1/2 cup of the ricotta mixture. Sprinkle with Fontina cheese evenly over ricotta cheese. Arrange prosciutto slices on top of cheeses.

Alcott on Saturday, June 11. The coffee meeting on Monday morning, June 13, was hosted by Carolyn and John Reece. Bob and Arlene Clouston furnished the assortment of fancy doughnuts for their 63rd wedding anniversary. David Bailie, the emcee for our gathering, turned it over to our manager George Susco. He stated that in the next couple of weeks there will be some changes made within the clubhouse. The floor will be re-tiled, new blinds will be installed on the windows, etc. The job of changing all the mailboxes will be completed and the roads will be re-surfaced this autumn. David Bailie asked if we had any new residents and Stan and Pam Price were present from Georgia, along with their grandson. The guests were James and Connie White, Bob and Arlene Clouston’s daughter and sonin-law from McHenry, Ill. and Chantel White, their granddaughter from Boston, Mass. David read birthdays for the week and we sang “Happy Birthday” to Joan Peterson, accompanied by Marilyn Cromer on the piano. Then the residents sang “Happy Anniversary” to Arlene and Bob Clouston. The Sunshine lady was Marilyn Cromer, filling in for Carol Noel. Will Noel is doing well after his surgery, but Joanne Seiple is back in the hospital. Let’s keep these people in our prayers. The activities for July will start with Men’s Pancake Breakfast on July 2. On July 4 we will have a fried chicken dinner at 5 p.m., with everyone bringing a dish to pass. Earlier on July 4, we will have a decorated golf cart parade, with more details to follow soon. On June 14, we had 16 ladies at the Women’s Coffee, which was made by Marilyn Cromer. Carolyn Reese baked big muffins for everyone to enjoy. Carol Noel said that the Military Committee will have their soup and sandwich meal on Sunday, July 17. Marilyn Christensen has asked that men and women volunteer two hours on Saturday mornings and help residents at the Lake Placid Health Care Center play bingo. At the end of the meeting, Arlene Clouston read a short story about a pair of flawed jeans with the message that God loves us too, in spite of our flaws. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, June 22, 2011Page 9B TOPS FL 487, SebringSEBRING — The June 15 meeting of TOPS 487 had six TOPS and two KOPS giving the pledges.

C M Y K Associated PressNEWYORK — Aselfpublished author has joined James Patterson, Stieg Larsson and others as a million seller on the Kindle. Amazon.com announced Monday that thriller writer John Locke, whose books are released through the online retailer’s Kindle Direct Publishing, has sold just over 1 million e-books, many of them priced at 99 cents. His novels include “Vegas Moon,” “Wish List” and “A Girl Like You.” His latest work is an advice book he was well qualified to write: “How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months.” Another self-published ebook sensation, Amanda Hocking, signed a six-figure deal earlier this year with St. Martin’s Press. But Locke says he wants to remain independent. “It just wouldn’t be fun for me”’Locke wrote Monday in an e-mail message to The Associated Press. “I like the idea of bein g able to walk away from writing if it stops being fun.” Locke does have a literary agent, Jane Dystel, and said she is working on movie and TVand audio rights. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, June 22, 2011Page 11B PULLETBy C.W.

We no longer have a food pyramid, but a food plate. The USDAhas revamped that intimidating pyramid into a plate, dividing said plate into: fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, and dairy. The veggie part of this plate are a no brainer — we all know to eat as many as you can and honestly, We never really do. Salads on the side of the USDA’s plate might be a good idea. Fruits and grains are the two areas that you want to make sure you limit to a certain degree. Remember, these both metabolize as sugar (carbohydrate) in the end. Once the carbohydrates start stacking up, it’s hard to burn them for energy and your body will start to store them as fat. And as far as fruits go, I would recommend using them to satisfy your sweet tooth, or add a little tangy twist to a salad. Fruits have a lot of natural sugars in them; too much and those too will be stored as fat if you strap on the feedbag. And last, but never least, protein. You need your protein to build muscle, bone and be able to use your brain. For optimal results, eat organic chicken, wild fish and grass-fed beef. Remember it’s protein that keeps your immune system functioning properly, maintains healthy skin/hair/nails, and helps produce enzymes. It’s a vital component on that plate and is the one thing that will help satiate you and keep hunger at bay. Make sure to always include it — fruits and veggies can only get you so far. The one thing that the new food plate left out was fat. Generally that would be considered a good thing, but what a lot of people don’t understand is that fat isn’t entirely bad, in fact our body needs it. Include some olive oil on that salad, eat fatty fish like wild salmon and put some nuts on your veggies. Fat isn’t bad at all, but the wrong fat is just wrong.

Taking the edge off nutrition Dinner Diva Leanne Ely DearAbby I was a victim of domestic abuse by my wife, and I don’t feel I have been treated fairly. There are many programs for abused women, but I haven’t found any for men. This problem is more common than people realize, but men are embarrassed to say anything. I’d like my voice to be heard to encourage men to speak up. I did not hit my wife back after she beat on me. I still love her, but I refuse to be abused any longer. Abby, please help me help myself and others. — Bill in Arkansas DearBill: Gladly. Among the problems with spousal abuse is that it escalates. Over the last decade domestic violence groups have become more aware of female-to-male domestic violence and violent behavior in same-sex relationships, and are better prepared to offer help than they used to be. That’s why it’s important you contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline. The toll-free number is (800) 799-7233. Counselors there offer guidance to women and men who are being abused by their spouse or partner. Another organization, SAFE (Stop Abuse for Everyone), also assists victims of abuse regardless of age, gender or sexual orientation. Its website is www.safe4all.org. DearAbby Our daughter is divorced with two children. She has been dating a man who has three children. Recently, they decided to move in together. All the children are first grade or younger. What would be the proper way to handle birthdays? If my daughter and her boyfriend were married, or even engaged, I wouldn’t have a problem sending gifts to his children. But since my husband and I hardly know this man (we live in another state and have met him only once or twice), we’re not sure how to handle this. Should we just continue to send birthday gifts to our daughter’s kids and nothing but cards to his? Or would that look bad? What’s the proper thing? — Fair-Minded in West Virginia DearFair-Minded: Your daughter and grandchildren have formed a household with her boyfriend and his kids. If you’re compassionate people, you will treat all of the children equally for as long as the relationship lasts. If they decide to marry, which is a possibility, you will wind up being grandparents to all of them. If they eventually separate, you will have done the right thing and lent some stability and happiness to those children’s lives. DearAbby For a lot of reasons — many betrayals among them — I have almost completely lost my faith in the basic goodness of people. I have started isolating myself because I believe that more contact with people will destroy what little belief I have left. I don’t want to be so bitter and cynical, and I need help overcoming this. Any advice would be appreciated. — Wounded Soul in Minnesota DearWounded: I’m sorry you have suffered disappointment. But isolating yourself from others isn’t the solution. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t been disappointed in someone at some point, but it’s not a reason to hide. Trust is something that has to be developed, and building it takes time. While I agree that relationships can be risky, unless you are willing to take some risk, there will be no reward.
