C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING — The Department of Defense confirmed Thursday that Private First Class Joshua Jetton died Monday in Kunar Province, Afghanistan “of wounds suffered when insurgents attacked his unit with small arms fire.” Jetton enlisted in the Army in August of 2010, and was assigned to the 25th Infantry Division. The 25th Infantry Division’s home is Scofield Barracks in Hawaii. He shipped out to Afghanistan in early April 2011. While Jetton grew up in Mooresville, Ind., graduating from Mooresville High School in 2008, he had family here and attended Sebring High School for a few months in Friday-Saturday, June 24-25, 2011www.newssun.comVolume 92/Number 74 | 50 cents 079099401001 HighLow 93 75Complete Forecast PAGE 10A Not quite as hot with a T-storm possible Forecast Question: Do you think the new warning labels on cigarettes will help reduce smoking?

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK — Former Avon park Chamber President Pat Graf and MidFlorida Credit Union took top honors during the Annual Chamber of Commerce Dinner on June 16. “Sit down, I’ve got plenty to say. I thought I was just here for a free dinner,” Graf said when presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award. According to outgoing chamber president Barry Bilder, Graf had served two terms as president and was very active within the community. “She served as president twice? Really? And she has been active with numerous boards and committees throughout Highlands County,” Bilder said. “It really has been a pleasure to work with her on several occasions.” MidFlorida was presented with the Business of the Year Award for its recent investments into the Avon Park community. MidFlorida recently opened a new branch at U.S. 27 and Hal McRae Boulevard.

Rain, Division of Forestry resources, the KeetchByram Index. “We are not at the critical point, and hopefully some rain this weekend will put it out of reach.” Governor Rick Scott recently issued emergency burn bans for 27 counties in Florida, and 22 have fireworks bans including Polk, Okeechobee and Glades Counties. According to the Division of Forestry’s website, the Keetch-Byram drought index (KBDI) is a continuous reference scale for estimating the dryness of the soil and duff layers. The index increases for each day without rain (the amount of increase depends on the daily high temperature) and decreases when it rains. The scale ranges from 0 (no moisture deficit) to 800. The range of the index is determined by assuming that there is 8 inches of moisture in a saturated soil that is readily available to the vegetation. “I like fireworks probably more than most, but I don’t want to jeopardize property or lives, and that is always taken into consideration. Fireworks still OK in Highlands, as of now But that could change if rainfall is lacking By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK — Despite a tight budget season, Avon Park’s Interim City Manager Julian Deleon told the NewsSun Thursday that there is positive financial news for the city. “Well, we are making some headway on annexation,” Deleon said on Thursday. “We will be bringing Chaney’s Auto Plaza into the city this week, and that will bring some revenue into our coffers with the optional onepenny sales tax,” Deleon said. “We will be able to use that revenue to help with infrastructure support. Right now, the county has the discretion of where that money goes, but we will be able to put it to work here in Avon Park.” Another positive, especially when property values and tax revenue are dropping, is the sewage collection proAvon Park making best out of tough budget By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING — City council members took no action regarding a second request by the Highlands Eagles Youth Football and Cheer to use property located at 2511 C.R. 17 North in Sebring for their upcoming fall season. The newly created sports group, headed by president Tim Hooks and Cliff Howell, first spoke to the council during the June 7 meeting and requested permission to use the property three to four nights a week for practices beginning July 5. Hooks and Howell were denied any action from the council because the organization was lacking a few signatures of all the property owners surrounding the field. Howell spoke Wednesday morning and gave information regarding the organizations progress. “We’ve gotten all the signatures we need from the property owners except one,” said Howell. “We have not been able to speak to Mr. Downing since the last meeting.” Chester Downing, a member of Christian Training Ministries Church located at 1747 Hawthorne Drive, has been opposed to the use of the field by the organization. Christian Training Ministries is adjacent to the empty lot at the far end of the field.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK – It was a joyful celebration for nine individuals with disabilities who graduated June 17 from a Food Service Program at Ridge Area Arc. As valedictorian Bobby Brewington, of Sebring, got choked up in making his speech before the class and audience, he told everyone how he had done food service in other counties and this 14-week training taught him even more. “I’ve done this before at a barbecue place,”Brewington said about the food service. “I also help set the table at my home. I’d liked to work in a kitchen somewhere.” Brewington lives in a group home with four other men in Sebring. He works on the janitorial crew at Ridge Area Arc and has now expanded his job experience by finishing the food service training. This program teaches the individuals all about proper food handling and safety. They even take the Florida Foodhandlers Training Program test provided by the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association. Brewington scored perfect on that test by answering all 20 questions correctly. There were nine graduates all together and five of them scored perfect on the Foodhandlers test. Emily Harrison, Billy Owens, Ruth Hancock and Amelia Titus scored perfect. Sarah Moore, Andi Willingham, Jose Vasquez and Tim Dowdy also participated in the program and passed the test. Each of the graduates moved on to learning table set up and proper serving techniques, which is the second phase of the program. They learn how to set tables for fine dining. Brewington scored a perfect 15 out of 15 points on the table set up test and only missed three on the serving technique test. Harrison, of Avon Park, was the salutatorian and found the training to be very beneficial to her. “I learned that washing your hands is very important,” Harrison said. “I wanted to learn how to serve food so I can make money.” Ridge Area Arc staff member Tiffany Perry was the instructor. The Ridge Area Arc Serving Team consists of individuals with disabilities who are certified in handling and serving food. There are now 24 members on the team and two staff who help manage it. They have done various catering jobs and special events in the community and luncheons in the Avon Park Depot Museum Dining Car. Anyone wanting information on hiring a well-trained food service team, can call Ridge Area Arc Director of Program Development Cindy Marshall at 452-1295, ext. 124. Students pass food service training at Ridge Area Arc Star Program hosts Meet and GreetLAKE PLACID – The Star Program will have a Meet and Greet at the Star Center at 3 p.m. Saturday. An invitation has been extended to community members to come and support the Star Program.

Memory Mobile brings services to Avon ParkAVON PARK — Many caregivers for persons with Alzheimer’s disease are unable to leave their loved ones alone or travel the distance to receive needed services and information. The Alzheimer’s Association Florida Gulf Coast Chapter is bringing its fully equipped mobile office, the “Memory Mobile,” to provide free services to local Highlands County residents as well as free memory screenings. The unit will be at Oaks of Avon, 1010 U.S. 27 N., from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. today. Contact Lisa Rodriguez, 385-3444.

For more information or to sign up for a free memory screening, call 3853444. The Memory Mobile is funded by the Florida Legislature the Florida of Elder Affairs.YMCA has plant/garage sale SaturdaySEBRING — The Highlands County Family YMCAis having a News-SunSEBRING — The Highlands County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a missing juvenile thought to be in the Highlands Homes area of Sebring (near the intersection of Roseland Avenue and Kenilworth Boulevard). Donavon Jarshaber Fletcher, 16, was last seen by his mother on June 3 at approximately 4 p.m. at his residence at201 Montego Drive in Sebring. Fletcher left the residence after a disagreement with his mother. He is a black male, 5-feet-6 and approximately 140 pounds. It is unknown what he was wearing when he left the residence. Since June 3, Fletcher reportedly has been seen in the area of Orange Blossom Street, Roseland Avenue, 1st and 2nd Streets and the L&M Grocery Store. He is also known to frequent the area of Blue Fish Drive in Sebring. If anyone has information about the whereabouts of this juvenile please contact Special Victims Unit Deputy Lars Kirkegard at 402-7358 or 402-7357. Anyone with information who wants to remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward is asked to call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226TIPS(8477), or on the internet at www.heartlandcrimestoppers.com. HCSOlooking for runaway teen COMMUNITYBRIEFS Fletcher Continued on page 6A As he boarded a helicopter in a volatile war zone, Spc. Cody Tumey sent his mom a heartfelt text message: “I’m on the bird, takin’ off,” the young soldier wrote. “I love you. Don’t worry.” Not worrying is impossible for this mother, especially as her son battles terrorists in Afghanistan’s Paktika province, which has been called one of the most dangerous places in the world for an American. Yet for Crystal Tumey, the instinct to stand behind her son and his fellow troops overrides her worst fears. “Our whole family tries to be the kind of supporters that Cody needs us to be through this, his first deployment,” she said in an e-mail to The Unknown Soldiers. Spc. Tumey’s maternal grandmother, Dee Dover, said the most difficult part of the deployment for her daughter is the frustrating reality of sporadic communication. While the soldier always tries to warn his family when he expects to be out of contact during a mission, the waiting, wondering and worrying would wear on even the strongest military mom. “She gets very anxious on that third day or fourth day,” Dover said. “I tell her it’s going to be OK, because every time it’s the fourth day, he gets back and he calls.” As Tom Petty once wrote in his ode to the Hoosier State, Cody “grew up tall and (he) grew up right with them Indiana boys on them Indiana nights.” While always good-natured, the future soldier struggled at times in high school and, according to his grandma, “bummed around” for about a year after graduation as he pondered life’s next step. “His paternal grandpa pointed him in the direction of the military,” Crystal said. “Cody also had a great deal of respect for his maternal greatgrandpa. Both of them were veterans, and they clearly had a big impact on him and his decision to join the Army.” As soon as basic training started, everything changed. “The truth is, the Army has truly brought out the best in Cody,” the soldier’s mom explained. “Cody has become a young man with purpose, bravery and commitment.” The fourth day POLICEBLOTTER Continued on page 6A See WAITING, page 5B

C M Y K In fact, despite setbacks and disappointments, there are also wonderful things happening. Things we should celebrate. Things that should rejuvenate us — for example, the after-school art program at the Community Center in Avon Park; or Champion for Children’s newest project, a theater program for young people on the Historic Circle in Sebring. Perhaps the most encouraging sign of all is the large number of truly exceptional individuals coming up through our high schools — both public and private. The next generation shows exciting promise. Take Avon Park’s native son, Charlie Brown, who graduated from Avon Park High School this year. He has just been elected president of the Florida FFAand will spend the next year representing the organization and state during trips to Washington D.C. and Tallahassee, among other places. Charlie will have the opportunity to influence policy and make a difference. Becoming FFAstate president is an achievement as well as an honor — he is the first Highlands County student elected to lead the FFA at the state level. He is also the first person of color, meaning at 18 he has already made history. We congratulate him for his accomplishments and wish him very well. We also congratulate his family and teachers who, with their support and faith in his abilities, were an essential part of his success. Charlie is not the only exceptional student in Highlands County, but sometimes it helps to keep the large things in perspective by focusing on a small part of the whole. Charlie represents the future he and his generation will shape. When a group of local science teachers visited NASAa year or two ago, they were told that today’s scientists have taken current knowledge as far it can go. It will be the young people who are now Charlie’s age who will take our understanding and technology further. For all the challenges we face in educating our young, and all of our concerns, it is reassuring to remember we succeed more than we lose. That Avon Park and its schools could produce such an example of hard work and self-discipline is a wonderful thing — the fact that Charlie is not alone makes us all the more encouraged. So let us all take heart. The world has always been scary, finding our way always difficult, but there are signs of hope all around us if only we look. There are reasons to have faith in the future. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, June 24, 2011Page 3ATODAYSEDITORIALTODAYSLETTERS 2227 U.S. 27 South Sebring, FL 33870 863-385-6155 NEWSROOMROMONA WASHINGTONPublisher/Executive Editor Ext. 515editor@newssun.com SCOTT DRESSELEditor Ext. 516scott.dressel@newssun.comDAN HOEHNESports Editor Ext. 528daniel.hoehne@newssun.com ADVERTISINGVICKIE JONESExt. 518vickie.jones@newssun.com CIRCULATIONTONY MCCOWANExt. 522anthony.mccowan@newssun.com BUSINESS OFFICEJANET EMERSONExt. 596legals@newssun.com EDITORIAL& OPINION Avon Park produces a young new star In these days of turmoil and change it is all too easy to fall into a negative way of thinking, losing our perspective. Scott likely to add insult to deathsEditor: Rick Scott and the Legislature endlessly blather about how they want to bring public sector benefits and retirements in line with private businesses. This would all be wonderful if the jobs were all the same, but they are not. This week, two Division of Forestry state firefighters gave their lives fighting a wildfire in the panhandle. Sadly, they join the law enforcement officers and correctional officer that were also killed in the line of duty this year. They all died to protect the public, something you don’t find from your “private sector” Governor Scott. The Governor will likely attend the funeral of these brave firefighters. Ahypocritical and cynical act by a typical politician who spent much of his time trying to gut public safety. Frankly, he isn’t worthy to darken the door as the rest of Florida remembers the sacrifice of these courageous firefighters. Dana B. Orr Avon Park Volunteers just like to helpEditor: Anumber of civic and governmental organizations held their annual volunteer appreciation functions this spring and, as usual, many did not show up. They did not serve their fellow citizens and community for recognitions; they just wanted to serve their fellow citizens and community. Children’s Center Advocacy Center, Take Stock in Children, RSVP(School Board/SFCC), Big Brothers & Sisters, Avon Park Children’s Theatre, Highlands Little Theatre and many more serve the youth of Highlands County. The Children’s Services Foundation will hold the Judge Clifton Kelly Awards Gala in September. The past three years the media have acknowledged thousands and thousands of unsung heroes after dozens of natural and economic disasters across this land of ours, especially this year. The Second Great Commandment was in full force. The Boys and Girls Club held their annual event Thursday night and only a fraction of the volunteers showed up, about 75 people. The entertainment was provided by the kids, who also served the food and refreshments. The talent displayed easily justified the great effort the club makes to help develop the kids into educated, culturally assimilated and productive citizens. They will be our future community leaders. Gabriel Read Avon Park BouquetsTriathlon support was amazingEditor: This past weekend, over 600 of us participated in the sixth annual Heartland Triathlon. One of my daughters and I have been fortunate enough to compete in all six. This single event has served as the catalyst for many of us in Highlands County to take responsibility for our health. I would just like to publicly thank those involved in putting this event together. An event of this magnitude doesn’t happen without hundreds of volunteers and I know I will leave some out. I would like to begin by thanking the race director, Cherie Starr, as well as the members of the committee. I can’t begin to imagine the many, many hours they’ve spent coordinating and organizing this event. I would also like to thank the many business sponsors. It is because of them that the participants are able to enjoy things like the pasta bash, the post-race party, and the amazing items in the goodie bag. Finally, I would like to thank the volunteers. From the folks out on the courses to the lifeguards to the bike mechanic to the physical therapist ... thank you, thank you, thank you. Aspecial thank you also to the law enforcement personnel, as well as the public employees, who were watching over us and helping things run smoothly. I know I’ve left some people out and I’m sorry. Please accept my sincere appreciation. Let me just say, in closing, that the success of this event and the willingness of so many people to give so much, is one of the things that makes this community such an amazing place in which to live. Mike Lee SebringCelebration creates memoriesEditor: Saturday, June 11, I was privileged to be a part of the Milestone Celebration held at the Kenilworth Lodge. This was truly a joyous event celebrating the remarkable accomplishments of Primal Connection’s first 10 years, the impressive revitalization, growth and impact of Heartland Cultural Alliance Renaissance’s first year and Fred Leavitt’s, Primal Connection’s founder and HCApresident, 70th birthday. There was a tasty selection of butler-served hors d’oeuvres by Chef Mac, an artists reception for the new show at the HCAGallery, and classical guitar by Kenny Summers. Larry McCandless emceed the event and humor ruled. Joy and a sense of community filled the room of some 200 people when the Primal Connection Percussion Ensemble performed and a conga line snaked around the room. There was a huge celebration cake and coffee by Brewster’s, a raffle was held for a five-course dinner for four with wine by Chef Mac, one round of golf for four at the Championship Highlands Ridge North, one hour Swedish Massage at The Spa at Hammock Falls, one round of golf for four at the 18-hole Golf Hammock Country Club, two tickets for the classical production of “Little Women” at Highlands Little Theatre with dinner for two at the Lakeview Restaurant. There was also a silent auction of pieces from HCA member artists including Linda Kegley, Jim Fitch, and Fred Leavitt. And then the drumming continued. The celebration was free to the public thanks to sponsorship from News-Sun, Anderson Animal Clinic, Highlands Today, Palms Court Catering, Highlands Independent Bank, Alan Jay Automotive Network, Carmelita Lim MD, Highlands Community Church, Kenilworth Lodge, Couture's Art Gallery & Framing and Bob & Betty Choquette. I would also like to thank the HCABoard of Directors. Memories were created that evening. Gail Leavitt Sebring Mitt Romney’s emergence as the early front-runner for the GOPpresidential nomination, along with Jon Huntsman’s recent entry in the race, makes certain that the 2012 campaign will continue the trend of carefully weighing candidates’religious beliefs. Both men will be scrutinized because of their affiliation with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and, in Romney’s case, because he has made religion a cornerstone of his campaigns. When he sought the presidency four years ago, Romney famously said, “Freedom requires religion just as religion requires freedom.” But even without the focus on the two Mormon hopefuls, the need for national candidates to establish religious credentials is growing. With each election cycle, it is becoming increasingly important for politicians to pledge their faith in faith. Basically, we’re entitled to know everything about candidates for high office, right down to whether Coca-Cola is their preferred soft drink, as Tim Pawlenty confirmed recently; whether they have a valid birth certificate, and whether they’ve circulated lewd photos of themselves on Twitter. Religious views are worth examining, we’re told, insofar as they might influence a candidate’s decisions. But is that relevant? Let’s say candidate A favors a woman’s right to chose an abortion, while candidate B states that abortion violates his religious principles. Does it matter where the position originates? Aposition is a position, regardless of how it’s formed. However, yielding to pressure from religious organizations is something different, and certainly cause for concern. Evaluating Huntsman’s candidacy, Paul Mero of the Sutherland Institute, a conservative think tank in Utah, wrote, “I, like many Americans, care that our nation’s highest leader is a person of faith. It matters to me because it becomes a point of commonality and a measuring stick for me as to how I might better understand that person’s politics and policies.” That’s where the religious litmus test comes in. Many of the declared or potential candidates appeared in Washington earlier this month at a “strategy briefing” sponsored by the Faith & Freedom Coalition, an organization headed by Ralph Reed of the Christian Coalition. They gathered to state their support of the group’s positions on issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage. Back in 2008, as the campaign heated up, candidates appeared in a televised religious examination conducted by Rev. Rick Warren, author of The Purpose-Driven Life. Among Warren’s questions to Barack Obama and John McCain: What does it mean to you to be a follower of Jesus Christ? Both men were guarded but answered dutifully. One wonders, however, if the reply, I’m not a follower, would have meant instant disqualification, especially among Republicans, where Christianity has the strongest grip. In the last three presidential elections, voters who identified themselves as Protestant or other Christian, voted overwhelmingly for the Republican. Jews voted by large margins for the Democrat, as did those who said they were unaffiliated with any organized religion. In a Quinnipiac poll, only 45 percent of Republicans surveyed said they had a favorable opinion of the Mormon Church. That would seem to present a major problem for both Huntsman and Romney. Romney spoke of the matter at great length in his campaign four years ago. There are some who would have a presidential candidate describe and explain his church’s distinctive doctrines, he said. To do so would enable the very religious test the founders prohibited in the Constitution. No candidate should become the spokesman for his faith. Yet, Romney’s insistence that freedom requires religion, diffused his argument, particularly for those who have witnessed the religious-cloaked turmoil in many parts of the world, as well as among those with no religious beliefs. Those worried about the increasing role of religion in politics should take note of the plan by Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a possible Republican presidential candidate, to conduct a day of prayer on Aug. 6, with a strictly evangelical Christian theme. Perry says he’s seeking spiritual solutions to the nation’s problems. Many politicians pay lip service to separation of church and state, while kowtowing to powerful religious groups and bending over to answer questions about religion that really should have no part in the election process. “It is apparently necessary for me to state once again not what kind of church I believe in, for that should be important only to me, but what kind of America I believe in.” So said John F. Kennedy, as he sought to become the nation’s first Catholic president. Clearly, JFK would not have imagined, nor favored, the intense role that religion plays in presidential politics some five decades later.

If the sewer inspection law passes, I expect that to skyrocket. We are uniquely situated here in central Florida, and we are picking up a lot of customers from Okeechobee, Hardee and Polk counties.” Another move that Deleon stated he directed was the consolidation of the city’s Parks and Recreation Department with the Streets Department. “It will save us over $55,000 a year by combining the departments and sharing the resources. “Mowers and weedeaters and other equipment can now be shared and we no longer need to hire another supervisor. “Parks director Larry LeFlam will take over both departments, and his willingness to do so will be a boost to the city’s coffers,” Deleon said. “In a tight budget season, you really have to think outside the box. Councilman (Terry) Heston did so when he encouraged commercial annexation like Chaney’s and everyone at the city is really trying to make the best out of a tough budget season,” Deleon said. Most of the changes that he has instated will be put into place after the next council meeting on Monday, according to Deleon. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, June 24, 2011Page 5A MARTIAL ARTS (pp); 3.639"; 3"; Black; ff top rhp only; 0 0 0 0 8 8 9 3 HIGHLANDS LITTLE THEATRE PP; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 06/22, 06/24, 06/26; 0 0 0 0 9 6 2 7 tion of the property at 900 W. Main St. Bilder himself chose Jerry Whidden of Heartland National Bank as the Chamber Director of the Year. “This is something that the president gets to do by themselves. Jerry never says an unkind word, and every where you look, he is volunteering for something. Jerry never talks about himself, and when you try to get him to do so, he always steers the conversation to how others contribute. Jerry truly has a servant’s heart,” Bilder said. Avon Park High student Kiri Crommett was awarded the Junior Achievement Scholarship of $500 for her hard work and determination throughout her high school career. Top scholarship winner of the year went to Harry Ramos, who received a big $1,000 check when he was awarded the Wanda Daymon Memorial Scholarship. Daymon was a chamber director and served as vicepresident of public relations at South Florida Community College, according to Chamber Executive Director Dave Greenslade. Incoming Chamber President Will Bennett encouraged the community to continue to work through “difficult times.” “We can all help make business happen if we work together and remain active,” Bennett said.

APchamber hands out awards The soldier’s forward operating base recently withstood a “direct hit” by enemy fighters, an incident that greatly concerned Spc. Tumey’s loved ones. When the soldier’s dad, Chuck, asked his son about the attack, Cody had a simple response. “The attempt happens every day here, Dad,” the soldier said, according to his grandma. “It’s not something isolated.” As day-to-day combat operations heat up during another volatile summer at war in Afghanistan and Iraq, patriotic Americans are praying for our troops, especially in small rural communities outside Indianapolis. “We pray during the day, we pray at night, we pray every time we think about him,” Dover said. “Cody has prayers beside him, over him and under him.” While faith sustains the soldier’s family, the unknown is still terrifying. “We have absolutely zero control over his safety,” Cody’s grandma said. “He has a job to do, and he’s dependent on other soldiers to do their jobs right, too.” Awarded a leadership medal before he could legally be served a beer, the young specialist was serving with the Army’s 1st Battalion, 16th Infantry Regiment, known as the “Iron Rangers,” when he turned 21 on June 15. “I wish we could be together to celebrate this milestone birthday,” Crystal wrote on June 14. “ But I know that he is where he wants to be right now.” As another dreaded fourth day without hearing from her son approached, the military mom was again comforted by her son’s poignant words: “This was my dream and my choice,” Spc. Tumey’s text message continued. “If something happens, don’t ever forget that.” To find out more about Tom Sileo, or to read features by other Creators Syndicate writers and cartoonists, visit the Creators Syndicate website at www.creators.com.

The Salvation Army and Masonic Lodge have both given use permission to use the field and the parking lot. It’s just this one thing holding us up,” Howell said. Bob Horne, board member of the church, spoke to Howell Tuesday evening following the city council meeting to show support of the use of the field as well as the league. “Anytime you can give 100 kids something to do four nights a week it’s a good thing. It seems like it’s all just a big miscommunication,” Horne said. Horne stated also that he and the other board members were planning to bring up the subject during Wednesday night’s church service. “They have plenty of parking, the Masonic Lodge is allowing them to use their parking. They have even talked about putting up a fence along the back of the field along the church property. I hope we can talk about it and see what we can do,” Horne said. “The council members said that he (Downing) does not have to give a reason why he doesn’t want us to use it; if he is opposed then he is opposed. But we started this league because we believe in it. If I start something I’m going to see it through to the end. I just hope the city and the church comes through to help us give something to these kids,” Howell said. Howell spoke early Thursday morning in an attempt to clear the air regarding the issue. “It’s been really onesided. It’s not a dead issue; people think that we have no place to go to practice and that’s not the case. We have a contract with the county already and if this doesn’t go through then all is not lost.” Continued from page 1A “But right now we are looking good. We would have to be in the upper 600s or 700s before there was a ban recommended. Here on the ridge, the soil is slightly different than in Okeechobee, for example, and that plays a role in the drought index. So far we are looking good,” Eures said. “But, remember that is a call that the board of commissioners have to make or the state has to declare, we can just make recommendations. So if the good Lord wants fireworks this year, he will send a little rain our way in the next few days. “We are not looking at a ban at this time, and no one has mentioned a potential ban to me, but we are keeping a close eye on things,” Eures said.

He moved to Sebring permanently after his graduation. It was at Sebring High School that he first met Alicia Moore, a member of the class of 2010. Their relationship blossomed after Jetton returned to Sebring and stayed with a close friend, Thomas Schaller, who was a neighbor of Alicia’s. Alicia and Josh married March 10 of this year at the City Pier Beach on Lake Jackson in Sebring. Jetton’s best friend, Alex Pelham, performed the service. Antonia Rivera, director of official records at the Clerk of the Courts, helped the couple fill out their marriage application. “I remember them, because they came in especially to get married before he went overseas,” she said. Schaller remembers his friend with pride, affection and great sorrow. “He was really funny,” Schaller said during a telephone interview with the News-Sun Thursday. “He loved to have fun. He was the kind of person who could make you laugh.” Jetton’s life had not been an easy one, Schaller said. For a time as a teen he had a rough time. But, Schaller said, he wanted to make something of his life and enlisted in the Army. “When (Josh) went into the military, he was still funny, but he took it seriously. He wanted to do his best, and he wanted (his fellow soldiers) to do their best too.” Schaller paused a moment, then added, “he was a damn good soldier and excited to be a father.” The one comfort Schaller has, he said, is that Jetton had met Alicia. “He was absolutely happy after all the rough years. There had been a lot of pain in his life, but she brought love back into his life. She was crazy about him and he knew it. It’s just so bittersweet.” Alicia Jetton is expecting twins later this summer. It is not known yet when Jetton’s body will be released by the Army and returned to what had become his home, but the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office will be escorting him from the airport when he arrives. Sheriff Susan Benton hopes that when he does return, people will turn out along U.S. 27 to welcome and honor him. Amemorial fund has been set up in his name at the MidFlorida Credit Union at 3863 U.S. 27 South in Sebring. Continued from page 1A Sebring soldier killed in Afghanistan

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comHis stellar high school career continued at the college level and brought Avon Park’s Johnny Sedlock to unexpected heights. With his collegiate career now at an end, the former Red Devil has plenty of accomplishments to look back upon. The 16-strikeout perfect game his junior year at Avon Park, district player of the year and All-County selection his senior season. His “Top Gun” award as the top pitcher his freshman year at SFCC and named to the JUCO All-Star team. Always a control pitcher who pounds the strike zone, Sedlock went 3-1 his sophomore year with the Panthers, striking out 51 and walking just 15. The two strong years at SFCC led the southpaw to play Division I ball at the University of Central Florida. Not only did he get the opportunity, Sedlock made the most of it with the Knights, winning his first start with the team in February of 2010. He would go on to start 10 games that season, second most on the team, with varying degrees of success at this top level of amatuer baseball. Sedlock hurled a sixinning masterpiece against Southern Mississippi that season, striking out five, walking none and just one earned run. His senior year was then littered with highlights as Sedlock, primarily from the bullpen, went 3-0 with one save and just a 2.00 ERA. Over 36 innings of work, he struck out 31 and walked just five, and it was when the stakes were highest that he came through the biggest. With two outs, the opponents batting average against Sedlock was just .208 and with runners on base, that average dropped to .182 In the Conference USA Championship Tournament, he went 4.2 innings of onerun relief in a win over Memphis and shut down Rice with 3.1 innings of one-hit relief. He then worked three innings in the NCAA Regionals against Alabama, giving up one run and striking out two. “The college baseball experience is something that I’ll never forget simply because it was awesome,” Sedlock said. “Flying out of state all the time to play teams who are in the top 10 in the country, at their place, in front of their crowds. The intensity of that alone can give someone chill bumps when you step onto that field in the heat of a baseball game knowing you have the opportunity to win or lose. “At the same time, its no easy task. It’s more like a full-time job,” he continued. “Having school work to do on most days, being at the field for 6-8 hours a day can be tough, not to mention the Florida heat! But I mean it’s an experience that I wouldn’t trade for the world. If I had the chance, I’d go back and do all the hard work over again, just because I love the game of baseball.” And he has these experiences to look back upon, knowing he stood his ground and succeeded against topnotch competition. “I knew I had some talent, but I didnt know how far it would get me,” Sedlock said. “I never expected to be playing on the same field as the Florida Gators or the Florida State Seminoles, let alone take both of them down in the same season.” Not selected in the Major League Baseball Amatuer Draft, Sedlock’s attributes The great thing about being a manager at 80 is that you don’t have to worry about what people think. Still, I’m wondering if Florida Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria knows there’s a difference between old school and just plain old. Not since Connie Mack toiled in the dugout for the old Philadelphia A’s — a team he also owned — has an octogenarian led a major league team so we’re in uncharted waters here. The bookies in Vegas probably can’t wait to post a line for the first time television cameras catch Jack McKeon nodding off in the dugout. But if McKeon can pull this off with the hapless Marlins he could give senior citizens their biggest boost since the introduction of Medicare. SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, June 24, 2011 Page 3B By BRIAN MAHONEY Associated PressNEWYORK — Union officials said Wednesday that NBAplayers and owners are about $7 billion apart over a 10-year span in their most recent proposals, a significant gap to close to avoid a work stoppage. So far apart in negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement that union president Derek Fisher said when players are briefed on the state of the talks, they are in “total disbelief” and ask why they even bother having meetings. “When we put our spreadsheets up, we put it on the board, we lay it out, everybody’s at a loss for how to even begin to close this gap,” the Lakers’guard said. They have only until June 30, when the current CBA expires, and they’ll take another crack at it during another session Friday. But as they continue to disagree over issues relating to the salary cap as well as the enormous gap in economics, it becomes clear how difficult it will be to avoid a lockout. “Their demand is gargantuan and we just can’t meet it,” executive director Billy Hunter said. Hunter and Fisher decided to meet with reporters after being caught off guard Tuesday when NBA Commissioner David Stern revealed details of the league’s latest proposal during a press conference after a bargaining session. Both sides had largely kept specifics from the media during the negotiations. Yet Stern and Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver laid out their proposal for what they called a “flex cap,” in which teams would be targeted to spend $62 million in salary, but could exceed that number through the use of exceptions to an unspecified level before the ceiling kicked in. The biggest surprise for the union: They said owners never mentioned the $62 million figure to them during discussions. Players insist what was proposed was still a hard cap because there was an eventual limit, and they have said from the start they will not agree to a hard cap. Fisher said the “flex” cap was a “total distortion of Union: Owners still demand too much in NBA talks MCTphoto Union president Derek Fisher, seen battling Chris Paul for control of the ball, sees another battle shaping up in NBA labor negotiations.

C M Y K reality,” saying “it’s not a flexible cap, it’s a hard cap.” Hunter allowed that the players would have to consider a hard cap if they were to receive a much higher cut of revenues. They are currently guaranteed 57 percent, a number they say the league wants to massively decrease. The league’s proposal guaranteed players’total compensation would never fall below $2 billion a year in a 10-year contract, but players earned $2.1 billion this season and believe they would earn more in later years as revenues rose. And they remain against the 10-year deal the league seeks, having proposed their own five-year contract which they say offers giving back $500 million to owners. The union believes the league wants the unusually long deal — the longest previously has been six years with an option for a seventh — because the league’s national TVcontract expires after the 2015 season, when it could have more money coming in without having to share it with the players. Hunter and Fisher also said even before a new deal, owners already want to take from the players in this one, seeking to withhold about $160 million in escrow money they would have been paid out from the 2010-11 season in August. Fisher said that “speaks to the arrogance that they feel” and said players shouldn’t be penalized for decisions owners have made that led to their losses. “I’m not inclined to want to give back money that we’ve earned to help you in a sense make maybe more mistakes or more poor decisions,” Fisher said. With owners asking so much from the players, Fisher said it doesn’t feel like the “partnership” owners stressed it was during their initial meetings. “Players have benefited from the current system more than the teams. For them it has been a much better partnership,” Stern said in a statement. “We are sorry that the players’union feels that way since it doesn’t seem designed to get us to the agreement that is so important to the teams, and we had hoped, the players.” Owners say they are losing $300 million this season, and players argue that can be addressed by expanded revenue sharing. Stern has said they will have it, but only after the new CBAis completed. That could still be a while. Owners will meet next Tuesday in Dallas, and Hunter said he expects they will vote there whether to lock out the players. But he said the players won’t accept a bad deal to avoid that. “I can assure you that we have not lost any of our resilience,” the players haven’t, and they’re willing to hang in there and fight,” Hunter said.

The only issue I have is that his official title is interim manager, which means he’s day-to-day. But, as fellow octogenarian Vin Scully likes to say, aren’t we all? Actually, Scully has a harder job than McKeon. The venerable Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster not only has to remember who is playing where but has to figure out a way to keep listeners interested in a team that is almost as pathetic as its bickering owners. Not that the Marlins are any better. When McKeon inherited them on Monday they were 1-19 in June and stuck firmly in the basement of the National League East. Their superstar shortstop was batting 100 points below his career average and had a grand total of 17 runs batted in. It’s not as if Loria was taking a big chance. The Marlins don’t figure to be going anywhere in the standings no matter who is penciling in the starting lineup. Why else would Edwin Rodriguez jump ship without even saying goodbye after less than a year on the job? No one seems to care much about the team, anyway, judging from the huge sections of empty seats that greet them every home stand in Miami. The only thing attractive about the team is the new stadium that will open next year with a roof to keep out the afternoon monsoons. Give an 80-year-old a blank check, though, and maybe, just maybe, something might happen. Might happen quickly, too. McKeon promptly benched Hanley Ramirez in his first game before moving him to cleanup for his second. The switch worked, with Ramirez responding with two hits and the Marlins breaking an 11-game losing streak Tuesday night against the Angels. Then he gave grateful reporters the kind of quote that managers half his age simply don’t give. “We’re a summer team,” McKeon said. “Today is the first day of the summer. We like to play much better baseball in the summer than we do in the spring. So watch out from now on because summer’s here, and we’re here.” Pretty bold statement, until you consider it comes from a guy who has seen more than his share of summers. Seen a lot of them from the dugout, too, though he’s got a ways to go before he catches Mack who, in a baseball sense, was really the granddaddy of them all. Mack was 87 when he finally turned in his straw hat and quit managing in 1950. He won 3,731 games, but lost 3,948 in a career that stretched over 53 years. McKeon, who retired two years after leading Florida to a World Series title in 2003, was watching his granddaughter play softball when he got the call offering him the job. He had been itching to get back in the game again and — after asking his wife if it was OK — quickly agreed to return to Florida. Age, he says, really is just a number. Eighty is the new 65. “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 said. Here’s hoping the players who could be his greatgrandchildren respond. The best story of the summer could be a senior citizen leading the Marlins to respectability, if not the playoffs. Then maybe the interim could be dropped from McKeon’s title, and he could get a new contract to help supplement his Social Security. Something long term would do nicely. ____ Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

Though not a hard thrower, he was described by UCF head coach Terry Rooney as a “strike machine,” certainly an in-demand skill set for success at any level. Not to mention the key trait that teams always seem in search of, being left-handed. But Sedlock, while always hopeful, knows the reality a bit too well after having been to a recent tryout “I really had the dream of becoming a pro-ball player and I definitely think I have the right mindset and work ethic go along with it.,” he said. “Unfortunately, scouts these days are not worried about that kind of thing. It seems to be all about two things, size and how hard does he throw? I caught the short end of the stick as far as both of those go because I’m only 5-foot-10 and my fastball is 84-86. I don’t have enough consistency around 87 to get many looks.” And though the dream was always there, it certainly didn’t hold him back in his studies as he received his Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies this year and is heading back to UCF in the fall to finish his Civil Engineering degree over the next two years. “I’m doing all right at the moment as far as letting go of ball. I think its gonna hit me when next season starts back up,” he said. “But I’m happy with where I’m at and what I’ve accomplished. I think it is God’s way of telling me it’s time to turn the page and start a new chapter.” Continued from 1B Sedlock starting new chapter Courtesy photo Given the opportunity to play at the Division I level at Central Florida, Sedlock showed he belonged.

Webber Football Golf Classic By STEPHEN WILSON Associated PressWIMBLEDON, England — Defending champion Serena Williams recovered from a poor start to defeat Simona Halep 3-6, 6-2, 6-1 Thursday and move into the third round of Wimbledon, staying on course for a fifth title. After dropping the first set, Williams regained her renowned intensity and powerful shot-making to dominate the rest of the way on Court 2. The winner of 13 Grand Slam singles titles is still searching for her form after a yearlong absence because of injuries and health issues. From 4-2 in the second set, the seventh-seeded American won eight out of the last nine games to re-establish her supremacy. It was the fourth consecutive three-setter Williams has played since returning last week at the Eastbourne grasscourt tournament. She had been out for nearly a year after two foot operations and blood clots in her lungs. Serena Williams wins in 3 sets MCTphoto Serena Williams was tested Thursday, but advanced at Wimbledon.

C M Y K There isn’t a week that goes by that an eye doctor doesn’t get a call from a patient saying, “There’s blood on my eye!” While this can have a rather frightening appearance, it is usually quite benign. Most of the time someone else notices the blood red appearance on the eye first. Some patients may complain of mild irritation along with what looks to be blood on the sclera (the white part of the eye), although the majority of patients usually have no symptoms at all. The cause of the redness is exactly what it looks like – a broken blood vessel on the surface of the eye is hemorrhaging and blocking the view of the sclera. This is what is known as a subconjunctival hemorrhage. It may be the result of coughing or straining too hard, hypertension (high blood pressure), trauma, taking blood thinners (i.e. coumadin, aspirin, or vitamin E), or a bleeding disorder. Laughing or sneezing too hard, being constipated, vomiting, or lifting too much weight can also cause a blood vessel to break. If a patient has a history of recurring subconjunctival hemorrhages over a short period of time, the eye doctor will order blood work to determine if the patient has some type of bleeding disorder. This is rarely necessary. While no treatment is required for this type of hemorrhage to resolve, artificial tear drops have proven beneficial for relieving any mild to moderate discomfort associated with the condition. Acold compress applied to the affected eye twice daily for ten minutes can also be helpful. In addition, any elective use of aspirin or vitamin E should be discontinued for three to four days to help with resolution of the hemorrhage. Patients who have been prescribed blood thinners should check with the prescribing doctor prior to discontinuing any medications on their own. Subconjunctival hemorrhages usually clear on their own within 7-10 days. Larger hemorrhages may take several weeks to clear. Patients should let their eye doctor know if the blood does not clear completely, or if the condition repeats itself, as blood work may be necessary.

New heart treatments to be on display todaySEBRING — Florida Hospital will be sponsoring a free, public tour of an interactive truck today where people can learn treatment options for irregular heartbeats, including Stereotaxis’ Remote Magnetic Navigation System technology. This is an advanced remote and minimally invasive robotic system that physicians can use to treat the most complex cardiac arrhythmias. Physicians operate the system from an adjoining room, utilizing a joystick and computer-controlled magnets to guide a catheter through the heart. When the physician locates the areas of the heart causing the irregular rhythm, they use a special catheter to enable a radiofrequency pulse, ablating a small section of tissue, shortcircuiting the arrhythmia. The truck will be parked outside Shelby Crossing (1700 US H7 North) from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Better Breathers meets todaySEBRING – The American Lung Association’s Better Breathers Club is a Lung Health Support Club for adults with lung disease, and their families and friends. The club offers educational information on COPD, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, asthma, sleep apnea, and other lung diseases. The club features different speakers each meeting on topics ranging from living with lung diseases, equipment use, managing and coping with your disease, and more. The meeting is facilitated by Carol Watson, RRT. The next meeting is at noon today in conference room 3, second floor at Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center in Sebring, on Sun ’N Lake Boulevard. Watson, a registered respiratory therapist with more than 20 years experience treating and supporting patients with lung disease, is this month’s speaker. She will be speaking on the Healthy Lung and How Disease Happens. Ahealthy snack and beverage will be provided. For more information about the support group call Mike Napper at 402-3450.

Why in the world does it take so long to put a few pills in a bottle? –B.S., Apopka Answer: If all you waited was 25 minutes, you’re lucky. Pharmacists work like crazy, always on their feet and often without bathroom breaks. Forget food! The law doesn’t allow pharmacists a lunch break in many states. That said, your pharmacist is more devoted to you than you can imagine. Here’s a look inside your pharmacy. Pharmacists need time to decipher that cat scratch on your prescription. Is it Prilosec or Prinivil? Does it matter? You bet your life. Calling your doctor to clarify drug names takes time. The second line is an insurance company saying you have to pay full price because the doctor prescribed a drug that is not part of your insurance plan. The third line has a frantic mother calling to ask if her teen will be OK if he swallowed two doses of Concerta. The pharmacist can’t hear her well, because a customer is tapping his finger and groaning at the counter. Doesn’t he understand that the pharmacist has to double-check all the pills for accuracy? Doesn’t he understand that corporate just cut his tech hours again? Then there’s Jimmy crying inconsolably with an earache, while his mom waits for the pharmacist to measure and mix the Amoxil. But Mrs. Jones needs to be helped right away because she’s in terrible pain. She’s patient because she realizes that the pharmacist might be on the phone with a doctor discussing an interaction that will save someone’s life. This is what he did for her last year. But Mrs. Jones is keenly aware of every minute … her oncologist gave her six months at best. The pharmacist is hurrying, though. Oh God! The computer went down, the printer is jammed and the pharmacy ran out of Cialis. How will they break the news to Mr. Shmeckler whose planning a romantic weekend in Boca? The pharmacist tries to take care of everyone, including the woman ahead of you who used up her asthma inhaler, and is gasping in the waiting area. The pharmacist is scared she’s gonna die right there so he’s dispatched 911 for assistance. Hang on though. Your prescription will be ready very soon … just as soon as the pharmacist rings out a customer for Imodium and Xanax ... a combination he could use himself. Where’s the cashier? Out sick with a migraine. It’s the recent fast food mentality, that contributes, and now some chains create the expectation in consumers by advertising 15minute wait times. Paypal offers instant money, iTunes offers instant music, Kindles with their instant books, and Pay-Per-View offers movies on demand. But pharmacists need more time than “instant.” The pharmacist is the last person you want to hurry up because your life is at stake.

One of the problems is stated in verses 23 and 24: “In those days I also saw Jews who had married women of Ashdod, Ammon and Moab, and half of their children spoke the language of Ashdod and could not speak the language of Judah, but spoke according to the language of one or the other people.” They had been warned of this danger many, many years ago by God through Moses in Exodus 34:16 and Deuteronomy 7:3,4. This unholy alliance/defection (v. 23) led to their downward slide (vs. 25-27). Language of Ashdod was a Philistine language and the problem was a mixed dialect of Ashdodite and Aramaic for the children of Israel. This would greatly hinder the law of Moses/God being taught and obeyed as they were instructed in Deuteronomy 6:6-9. But the “language of Ashdod” is alive and well today. Consider the following: born-again Christian, covenant theology, rapture, reverend, church of your choice, Lent, baptismal regeneration, church age, millennium reign; pope, etc. All these terms and titles have come out of denominational/sectarian doctrines and could be correctly called “jargon.” Jesus, the Christ, wrote through Peter (1 Peter 4:11): “If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God.” Oracles, divine utterances, refers to the Law of Moses and gospel of Christ (Acts 7:38; Hebrews 5:12). As in the days of Nehemiah, so today, the “language of Ashdod” leads precious souls away for the Truth. Jesus warned of the mixing of the good seed and tares in Matthew 13 and the results that would follow. Amuch-needed admonition from the first century is relevant today: “And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God” (First Corinthians 2:4,5). Now listen carefully to the Spirit by the pen of the apostle Paul: “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” (2 Timothy 4:2-4) Finally, a prophet of old, Jeremiah, speaks loud and clear even for today: “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’” (Jeremiah 6:16) Frank Parker is a Sebring resident and can be reached at frankparker27@yahoo.com Language of Ashdod Guest Column Frank Parker FBC of Lorida holding ESOL classes on TuesdaysLORIDA— First Baptist Church Lorida is holding classes for ESOL(English Speaking other languages) on Monday and Tuesday evenings from 6-9 p.m. GED classes may be scheduled if enough interest warrants it.

After trying several different vegetables, we got the best returns on tomatoes and pole beans, so for three seasons that was all we planted. Then it happened that I was diagnosed as having gout in my toes, so I had to go on a diet. The first thing the diet cut out was tomatoes because of their acid content. So I plowed the garden under and covered the area with sod. Recently I learned about a garden that you can plant at any time. You really don’t need to wait until next spring. This is a garden you can start planting today. First, plant five rows of peas: preparedness, promptness, perseverance, politeness and prayer. Next to them plant three rows of squash: squash gossip, squash criticism and squash indifference. Now then, put in five rows of lettuce: let us be faithful, let us be unselfish, let us be loyal, let us be truthful and let us love one another. No garden is complete without turnips: turn up for Sunday school, turn up for church, turn up with a smile and turn up with determination. Floyd Rider is a Lake Placid resident and a long-time Sunday school teacher. You can grow this garden anytime Guest Column Floyd Rider Associated PressSAN MARINO — Pope Benedict XVI says refugees deserve a dignified welcome from countries receiving them, until they can return home freely and safely. Benedict marked World Refugee Day, which is being observed Monday, with an appeal Sunday to political leaders to “guarantee a welcome and dignified living conditions” for refugees. He made the comments during a visit to San Marino, a tiny republic of some 30,000 people surrounded by Italy and located near the Adriatic city of Rimini. More than 20,000 migrants from Tunisia and Libya have flocked to Italy in recent months fleeing unrest in North Africa. Italy’s center-right government has struck agreements with Tunisia and Libya to return those who don’t qualify for refugee status.

C M Y K By CHRISTYLEMIRE APMovie CriticPixar’s track record has been close to impeccable for turning out intelligent, emotionally rich, beautifully detailed animated films, with plenty of humor and heart to appeal to movie lovers of all ages. But the weak link in the chain, at least from a narrative standpoint, has always been 2006’s “Cars,” with its two-dimensional talking autos and hokey, borrowed tale of small-town life. Sure, it was bright and zippy, which was enough to appeal to the little ones, and it became a merchandising juggernaut. Just try finding a kid who doesn’t have some sort of “Cars” stuff. My 19-month-old son has a Lightning McQueen sippy cup and I have no idea how he got it — these things just show up on their own. That’s how ubiquitous they are. So sure, why not make a sequel? Trouble is, “Cars 2” is such a mess, it makes the original look like it ought to rank among Pixar’s masterpieces by comparison. What has set the studio’s films apart from all the other animated fare is story: It’s paramount. Innovative tales like “WALL-E” and “Up” get you choked up just thinking about them, they’re that good. “Cars 2” tries to encompass many kinds of stories at once, none of which is terribly clever or compelling. And the fact that Pixar mastermind John Lasseter is back as director is the most baffling part of all. This is the man who kicked it all off with the soulful and groundbreaking “Toy Story” back in 1995. This is not someone from whom you would expect empty glossiness. Here, working from a script by Ben Queen, Lasseter makes a transparent attempt at catering to the ever-expanding global moviegoing audience by having the hero of the original “Cars,” Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson), compete in an international grand prix through Japan, France, Italy and Britain. The sponsor is a Richard Branson-type Range Rover-looking vehicle (Eddie Izzard); McQueen’s main rival is an arrogant Italian Formula 1 racecar (John Turturro). At the same time, “Cars 2” panders to middle America by placing Mater, the rusty, aw-shucks tow truck, front and center. McQueen is flashier but this is Mater’s time to shine, as it were; Larry the Cable Guy, who voices the character, even gets top billing over Wilson. But a little of the comedian’s twangy shtick goes a long way — for the audience, and for McQueen, who gets annoyed with Mater’s boorish behavior in all these refined settings. Still, Mater is there to teach us some lessons about valuing the underdog. Or not judging people because we think they’re different or stupid. Or something. But wait, there’s more. “Cars 2” is also a James Bond spoof, with Michael Caine providing the voice of the elegant English sports car, superspy Finn McMissile. This ties into a whole ‘nother subplot involving alternative fuel sources and the German villain (Thomas Kretschmann) who has big plans to keep cars reliant on Big Oil. With all these new characters and various narrative strands competing for our attention, there’s not much room for fun. Bad TeacherThis is exactly the onejoke movie that you probably expect it to be, but there are enough variations and shadings of that one joke to sustain its brief running time — just barely. Cameron Diaz plays ... a bad teacher. She secretly sips airline-size booze bottles during class, doesn’t bother to learn her students’ names and figures that showing them movies about education like “Stand and Deliver” and “Dangerous Minds” is just as good as educating them herself. Because you see, she’s not teaching English at a suburban Chicago middle school for the deeply rewarding experience of shaping young minds. She just needs enough cash for a boob job, which she thinks will help her land a rich husband. Like the far superior “Bad Santa” from 2003, the key source of laughs here is the subversion of an authority figure who’s supposed to be trustworthy, reliable, even honorable. And, like Billy Bob Thornton in that earlier film, Diaz just goes for it in a role that lets her be brazenly sexy and inappropriately funny all at once. Jason Segel, Lucy Punch, Phyllis Smith and Justin Timberlake help greatly in supporting roles. Rated R for sexual content, nudity, language and some drug use. Running time: 89 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four. DearAbby: My husband, “Ed,” and I have been together for six years, married for two. This is the second marriage for both of us. We have children from our first marriages. Ed works offshore. He’s gone 21 days and here 21 days. The three weeks he’s gone, I work, take care of the house and the kids, do the yard work, etc. When he comes home, I want him to myself the first weekend — I don’t want to share him with his friends. I’d like to do fun things with him sometimes, just the two of us. Ed says I have to understand his friends are important. He says I’m selfish and jealous. He doesn’t show affection very well either (except behind closed doors), and I am a very affectionate person. Am I asking too much from him? I am considering counseling, but I’m unsure whether Ed would go. — Bored and Lonely in Mississippi DearBored and Lonely: Counseling is an excellent idea, and if Ed won’t go, you should go without him. Asking your husband to spend two days of one-onone time with you when he returns from three weeks away isn’t too much, and it’s not selfish. He needs to reorganize his priorities and put you higher on the list than his buddies. Affection is supposed to be spontaneous, and you shouldn’t have to beg for it. What you describe going on behind closed doors sounds more like plain old sex and a whole lot less like affection. Unless your husband is willing to put more effort into your marriage, I can’t see you living until death do you part on a starvation diet — and you can tell both your husband and your counselor I said so. DearAbby: I know you get many letters from people who are unemployed, depressed and don’t know how to climb out of the funk. I was laid off from my management position three weeks after giving birth to my first child. Talk about depressing. After several months of recovering from a difficult birth, I contacted my local SPCAand began volunteering. Not only do I help by feeding and cleaning the kitties, but I am using my professional skills to help them with photography, graphic design and fundraising. I’m still looking for work and getting occasional interviews. And in those interviews, potential employers always seem impressed with my volunteer work. I’m writing to encourage anyone who is unemployed to find charitable organizations to work with. Offer your professional skills. It is something to get up for and do during the day. It also looks good on your resume and makes you feel great. — Unpaid For Now, Buy Happy in California DearHappy: That’s a valuable suggestion, and thank you for it. At this point, 13.9 million Americans are unemployed. Many suffer from depression because, through no fault of their own, they have been unable to find jobs. When people feel embarrassed, frustrated and angry, they tend to isolate themselves, which doesn’t help and can be unhealthy. The more connections you make, the greater your chances for finding permanent employment, because in the final analysis it’s all about people and relationships. I wish you luck in your job search. Whoever hires you will be lucky to have you. DearAbby: My brother often tells me that I’ll “make a good wife someday.” Is this an insult or a compliment? — Baffled in Boston DearBaffled: I’d consider it a compliment. An insult would be you’d make a LOUSYwife someday. However, whether it’s meant as an insult or a compliment would depend upon your brother’s opinion of the institution of marriage.

Bay tells GQ magazine in an article appearing in its July issue that Spielberg, who is an executive producer on the film, told the director to “fire her right now” after Fox made the Hitler remarks to a British magazine last year. Fox told the magazine before production began on the third “Transformers” installment that Bay “wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is.” The 25-year-old actress was replaced by Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.” Cars 2 is a clunker of a sequel Disney/Pixa r A scene from Cars 2. Movie Review Cars 2 Rating: G Running time: 106 minutes GET YOUR LOCAL NEWS STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCEƒ

C M Y K LIVING 10B PAGE News-Sun Friday, June 24, 2011 To Play:The first player sings the entirety of a simple song, such as “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” The next player repeats the song, leaving off the last word. The following player leaves off the last and second-to-last words. (It’s surprisingly hard!) Players have to sing the song correctly on their first try or they’re out. The singing continues around the car until all the words have been left out. These clever activities will help your family pass the miles with smiles To Play:Players take turns challenging the rest of the group to name 10 things in any category: cookie varieties, animated movies, dog breeds, female professional athletes, automobile models and so on. The group has two minutes to complete the list. Give it a twist:Allow yourselves fewer than two minutes or require that items be listed in alphabetical order. To Play:An adult makes a list for each player of things people in other cars could be doing, such as sleeping, wearing a red hat or eating an icecream cone. The first player to see everything on her list wins. Give it a twist:The player who spots a nose picker automatically wins! To Play:Each player chooses a color from the cars tha t pass by in one minute. Everyone then tries to spot 25 objects of their chosen color. When an object is spied, the player calls it out so that othe rs can verify it, then writes it down on his list. The player with the highest tally after a s et time wins. To Play: Players take turns saying things they have never done, such as eaten spinach or been on a boat, with the goal of trying to name something that everyone else in the car has done. Asuccessful “I Have Never” earns a player one point. The first to reach five points wins. To Play:In this nightdriving game, players find lights in order of the colors of the rainbow — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. Players call out the colors when they spot them; the first to finish the list wins. Acar with one headlight is a wild card, good for any color for the player who spots it. Give it a twist:Add such colors as brown or pink. During the day, look for colors on signs. To Play:One player thinks of a person related to the family. The others take turns asking simple yes-or-no questions to help them guess the person’s name: Is the person an adult? Is the person a female? Does she have red hair? The player who guesses correctly thinks of a new person. To Play:One player thinks of something the family will see or do at the vacation destination. The other players ask yes-or-no questions (Is it something we are going to eat?) to help them guess the item or activity. The first player to guess correctly wins. Give it a twist:Allow the guessers just 10 questions, or just five. By Becky Karush, Disney FamilyFun Magazine Illustrations by Matte Stephens, Disney FamilyFun Magazine
