Come July 15, Avon Park will be host to the Dixie Youth Baseball AAAand Ozone state tournaments — that is 9to 12-year-olds. “We are expecting 32 teams, which consist of 12 players and three coaches each. The tournament will run for 10 days with numerous games being played daily. These teams will be traveling here from all over the state and will be bringing a great deal of revenue to the area,” he told the Avon Park City Council sitting as the Community Redevelopment Agency Monday night.

The council voted on June 13 to set rates fo r organized play where citizens of Lake Placid would pay a lesser rate to play than those who live outside the city. Those new rates are scheduled to take effect Aug. 1. Parks and Recreation Director John Kamo sa informed council that user fees were still possible, but grants obtained from the Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program (FRDAP) prohibited different charges based solely on how much taxes a citizen pays. Additionally, questions in the community of how to be inclusive and equitable when charging a fee were discussed. Rec fees in Lake Placid hit snag By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING — At least 1,000 people turned out Monday to say goodbye to a young man most of them had never met. Pfc.

Aprocession escorted him home. The simple, silver Pfc. Joshua Jetton will be laid to rest today. Family will receive friends beginning at 10 a.m. at First Baptist Church of Sebring, 200 E.

C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING — The Ohio Valley Refinery and Roadshow has made a stop in Highlands County, at The Holiday Inn Express located at 4400 US U.S. 27 North until Saturday. The doors are open 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Saturday. Media relations specialist Brittany Thomas explained what the roadshow is all about. “We have collectors from all over the world. They all are looking for different items,” said Thomas. The most popular items at any roadshow usually are jewelry and coins. The Ohio Valley roadshow is no different. “Coins are popular. They have collector’s value as well as precious metal value. The pre-1964 coins are sought after; they are all made with silver and gold,” Thomas said. Other things such as vintage jewelry have precious metal value and collectors look for these, as well. The Roadshow buys a variety of items from autographed baseballs to antique furniture to war items. “Things like swords and daggers are rare because they weren’t supposed to be taken back then. They have a lot of value,” said Thomas. The Ohio Valley roadshow has picked up some unique items throughout its run including a very vintage electric chair in Tampa. “It was really cool. We actually have it here at our offices. We’ve been contacted by the National Museum of Crime and Punishment about it,” Thomas said. Books are also good items to bring to the roadshow. Many antique books have first editions which are usually different from the published copies, according to Thomas. “We found a first edition of Huck Finn and it was really cool. When you flip to certain pages there were things that weren’t in the published editions,” Thomas said. This will be the Roadshow’s second stop in Sebring. The first was in May of last year. “We had a really good turnout and we like to come back when we have good turnouts in cities or we come back when we have people calling and asking ‘Hey, when are you coming back?’” Thomas said. The roadshow will feature three to six experts, however Thomas explained that if the demand becomes higher for more the company will happily fly more into Sebring. The expected wait time for customers is between 30 and 40 minutes. “We try to work quickly with everyone and get them in and out. We also have what is called an express service. If someone gets there and forgets an item at home, they can take an express pass and go home to get the item and when they return they can jump to the front of the line,” Thomas said.

C M Y K Even with high cloud cover, Monday was hot and muggy. Yet people began to turn out even so.Slowly at first, then steadily, more and more of them gathered, until Sebring Parkway was lined many deep with women, men and children waiting patiently to welcome a war hero home. Smaller groups took up watch along U.S. 27, some as far north as Lake Wales. Older men, many of them combat veterans themselves, rode in solemn escort, American flags lashed to their machines and streaming in the wind as they rode. Two ladder trucks formed an arch across the parkway, with an American flag hanging between the two. The moment was dedicated to a young man and his family. Private First Class Joshua Jetton was returning from Afghanistan where, exactly a week before, he was killed by insurgents in a firefight. At 21, a newlywed, with twins due in about eight weeks, his death touched us all. Especially because he was one of those young men who was determined to make something of himself after a difficult, ungrounded adolescence. Our hearts go out to his wife, Alicia Moore Jetton, and the rest of his family and his friends. Some people have questioned why Highlands County would gather in this way for someone who did not grow up here. We have no questions at all. Not only did Joshua Jetton attend Sebring High School for part of the 2007 school year, he met the wonderful young woman who gave him unconditional love here. Sebring became his adopted home. We are proud of this community for taking him in and turning out to say goodbye. But beyond that, Joshua deserved this respect even if he had never set foot in Highlands County. Large numbers are overwhelming. Weunderstand that thousands of military men and women have died in Iraq and Afghanistan. We weep for all of them and their loved ones left behind. Statistics, however, are cold and abstract, the dead unknown and so all the more lifeless. We grasp the enormity of their loss intellectually, but remain disengaged emotionally. But, this past week, as word of Joshua’s death reached us, we learned about him — how he could make people laugh, how he gained in maturity and grew into his responsibilities. Weconnected with an individual, and by doing that we embraced all the men and women who have died for our country — and those who are risking their lives at this very moment.

Local volunteers were out at 4:30 in the morning blocking off the right hand lane on Highway 27 northbound, and preparing for road closures on Lakeview and other side streets. Hundreds of volunteers from Florida Hospital, the Highlands Pedalers, the Central Florida Striders, and other organizations manned the Civic Center, Kenilworth Lodge, the beach, streets, aid stations, and transition areas to support this event. Many people in our small community probably do not understand what it takes to put on an event like this, and understandably, probably don’t care, either. It takes hundreds of man (and woman) hours of preparation months before the actual race day. Sponsors are lined up, publicists are spoken to line up high profile speakers, custom shirts, visors, and other goodies are ordered, food is lined up (thank you Olive Garden), professional photographers and timing companies are contracted, requests for road closures and police officers are filed, and that’s still only the tip of the iceberg. Why would someone in their right mind go through all of the effort and sleepless nights so that 600 other people questionably in their right minds would want to subject their bodies to a swimming, biking, and running race? The answer lies in what so many people in our society lack: passion. Few people are born natural triathletes. Sure, a lot of people are good in one event, but we have to work at the others to compete. Our winner this year finished in under an hour for a quarter-mile swim, 14-mile bike ride, and 3.1-mile run. That is phenomenal, but the story is not about him. The story is about the single mom that works two jobs, the physically disabled person, and war veteran amputee that overcome the adversity to complete a challenging physical test. Every race is a journey all its own; there are parts where one feels great, and others where it is a struggle to take one more stroke, push the pedal one more time, or take one more step. I had the privilege of racing at St. Anthony’s this year, and I admit that I could have done better, but it was hard to come away from that event without being inspired. I saw a woman with cerebral palsy slowly but determinedly make it through each discipline without complaining. I saw a woman that you did not realize was a double amputee until she got to the edge of the water and her training partner had her crutches waiting for. She had to use a hand cycle on the bike course, and then she went right back to those crutches for six and twotenths miles on the run course. I saw a man that was still 300 pounds, but refused to give up. It all comes back to passion. The stories at our local race were not as extreme as the ones we saw at St. Anthony’s, but they were there. Every single person that participated has a story that goes along with their journey. We had the pleasure of hosting some of the best young triathletes in the country this year. Our loca l cycling club, the Highlands Pedalers, was out helping on the bike course. We hav e seen a huge increase in the number of people participating in our local running races. We now have a local triathlon club, the Heartland Triathlon Team, which boasts some 75 members. Six hundred racers, their families, friends, and coaches descended on our town this year and spent their hard earned paychecks in our hotels and restaurants during a poor economy. W e are seeing passion being instilled in the form of fitness, and our community benefits from it, both in health and the economic boost we get during this weekend. Those who participate in the sport of triathlon will tell you that we are host to one of the best, if not the best, sprint triathlons in th e state. It does not come without sacrifice, however. Our race director, Cherie Starr, as well as many others give all of themselves to make this race great and fulfill their goal of hosting the highest quality sprint triathlon possible and creating a memorable experience for the participants. As I got know Cherie better this year, I began to realize just how much sleep she loses, how many hours she puts in, and how passionate she is about this sport. So Barry Foster, I am sorry that our road closure s kept you from getting a wrench that you needed from your brother-in-law f or a project. I am sorry that you feel that we trashed all of downtown Sebring. Understand, however, that this race and this sport are so much bigger than you, me, or any one individual. It is about the journeys, the successes, the failures, and the inspirations that drive us to maintain this lifestyle. Being fit is great, but the journey is what binds us together as triathletes and allows us to cheer just as loudly for the last person a s we did the first person to cross the finish line. In closing, if you truly feel that our event has trashed our beautiful down town area, please email me or send me a message on Facebook to let me know what areas have not been cleaned up, and I will glad ly spend my time to make it right. Before you decide to put our race down again, why not come join us? Run a few 5K races with us and the Central Florida Strider s this fall, go on a few rides with the Highlands Pedalers this winter, and train with the Heartland Triathlon Team next spring to complete your own journey next year. Let me know ahead of time, and I will even pay your entry fee. If you still think that our race and our lifestyle is that detrimental to our community, then at least we can all say that you walked a mile in our shoes. Kenny Koehler is a Sebring resident who participated in the Heartland Triathlon. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily that of the News-Sun. Come walk a mile in our shoes Guest Column Kenny Koehler Browns leadership earned due to respectEditor: I read with interest and pleasure your Friday’s editorial about Charlie Brown, newly elected president of Florida FFA. But I do not understand what the following statement had to do with the matter; “He is also the first person of color, meaning at 18 he has already made history.” If he was not a “person of color” would that had been mentioned? Was Charlie Brown elected because he was a “person of color” or a person of character and leadership? In my opinion, such a statement is an insult to this young man’s abilities to serve in this great organization that promotes high standards in its members. I trust he will lead the Florida FFAbecause he has earned the respect of his peers by his examples and not because he is a “person of color”. Frank Parker SebringFly the flag, dont wear itEditor: With the Fourth of July approaching many people will, mistakenly, wear garments or other items made from our flag thinking it will show their patriotism, wrong! It will only show disrespect for the flag. Most, if not all, such items are “Made in China". How much respect for our flag do you think there is in China? I quote from the official government booklet “Our Flag”: “No disrespect should ever be shown to the flag of the United States of America. The flag should never be used as wearing apparel. No part of the flag should ever be used as, or part of, a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen and members of patriotic organizations. The flag represents a living country and itself considered a living thing.” To show your patriotism: Fly the flag don’t wear it! Sandy Oleesky Sebring A merica under attackEditor: The Constitution and the American people are under attack by its own corrupt political systems. American citizens can demand in 2012 term limits for all local, state and federal government “or” we can continue down the road towards civil collapse like the rest of the world. The super rich worldwide have created class wars. They have destroyed middle class workers worldwide. The American government has raided all of America’s trust funded social programs including our national tax system, the I.R.S. In the 1920s and 1930s, high-profile gangsters like Al Capone could only be j ailed for tax evasion. Hundreds of America’s senators, congressmen and women and presidents should be wearing striped suits for the raiding and outright theft of trust funds and the I.R.S. Senior Americans and those near Social Security age should march on Washington demanding an end to career politicians and term limits for all. Better yet, all ages are on Social Security from the cradle to the grave. There is nothing wrong with the funding of our trust funds. The problem is that career politicians raid those funds to give tax breaks to the super rich, just as they are raiding the I.R.S. to fight five wars for Asia and Europe. Demand that the super rich pay back the Bush tax cuts of the last 10 years. The United States is not alone in the class war declared by the super rich, there is civil unrest worldwide. The only salvation for the American political system is to demand term limits for all, local, state and federal, an extension of the 22nd amendment, where the president of the United States can only serve two terms, an extension to include: All public servants. In this attack on the Constitution, where is the Supreme Court? Are they going to stand by and fiddle while America burns? Billie E. Jewett SebringIts our moneyEditor: This letter is addressed to all three branches of government. The subject is the American war veteran and his health care, the VAand the way the veteran is taken care of after injury. I am a veteran, 81 years of age, who has had claims on file for seven years. The claims are numerous, starting with asbestos damage, melanoma skin cancer operations, heart bypass, stints, lung thickening due to asbestos damage. Astay in Camp LeJeune Hospital in 1951 for lung infection. My claim is on file with Highlands County Veterans’Services office in Sebring. My claim has not been approved. The care at VAs are excellent, however, the action on claims is very poor. More than 125,000 veterans’claims are not being addressed. The American tax dollar “is not” the piggy bank for the known world. The American veteran should be first in line, not the last. The American tax dollar tries to take care of the world financially. We have five wars going on and many injured veterans. We, the veteran, can do without the many monuments built in our honor but we cannot do without our health care. The American veteran puts his life on the line, the very least the American people can do is to demand that veterans’claims be addressed as a number one priority for “our tax dollar,” not foreign governments, which brings to mind the bailing out of the European Common Market with our tax dollars. There should be a demand for the impeachment for any political figure who would promote this tax giveaway. The American taxpayers’problems with our social programs all being under attack by both political parties. The robbing of our trust funds to bail out Europe through our involvement in the international monetary fund. The bailing out of Greece is unacceptable. We are in competition with Europe for jobs, American middle class jobs, now that they, the European Common Market has under bid America for millions of jobs, they now want American taxpayers to bail them out. Our first priority should be to take care of the 125,000 veterans’claims that have been ignored these many years. “It’s our money.” Billie E. Jewett Sebring A man worth the tribute

OBITUARIES Toler said he hoped the community would turn out to help during those 10 days, first because he wanted Avon Park to shine, and secondly because if all goes well, the Dixie League could sign a five-year contract to bring the tournament here annually. When asked if he had approached the Chamber of Commerce for help, Toler said he had reached out to David Greenslade, president of the chamber, earlier in June but had not heard back. The CRAvoted unanimously to give a $5,000 event grant to Avon Park Baseball to help offset some of the expenses involved. Mayor Sharon Schuler and member Paul Miller both volunteered their services while the tournament is underway. This is because Toler said many volunteers will be needed — from people to help maintain the fields between games, setting up tables and chairs for group dinners, working in the concession stand, monitoring the gate or acting as a host family. Ahost family will not be asked to put people up in their homes, rather they would be a local contact, helping to give directions or answer questions about the area. Toler said he would not turn away financial contributions as there are significant costs in bringing the tournament here, but volunteers are every bit as important. Council member Terry Heston congratulated Toler for getting the tournament to Avon Park. “This age group brings in the most people,” he said, “Kids, parents and grandparents. Park Sutherland agreed. “This will be a great benefit,” he said. To volunteer or get more information call, Toler at 253-0897. Continued from page 1A “I must have had eight people come up to me and tell me how unfair this user fee is when there was 200 Mexicans out there and not one of them had to pay anything,” pointed out Mayor John Holbrook. “I want to be a bit careful here because I keep hearing that, and I don’t want to turn this into the difference of whether you are Spanish or American,” said council member Debra Worley. “This is one of the things that has bothered me from day one. How do we make it fair and equitable for everybody not just for the parents whose kids are playing organized sports?” Holbrook asked. “We need to figure out how to collect monies over the whole board or, I don’t know, I guess it could be considered a type of discrimination. I don’t know,” Holbrook added. “Everybody pays,” said Councilman Ray Royce. “My intention when I made the motion was that everybody, whether they are black, white or brown, will pay the use r fee for activities above a certain number,” Royce explained. Councilman Steve Bastardi echoed Royce’s assertions. “We are in the business o f recreation and it seems to me that more flows out then wha t comes in, and we have to correct that,” Bastardi said. “I think we need to solidify the rules. If you are playing in organized groups larger than X, then you need to pay the fee.” “As far as the different fe es go, I have been told from day one that the grants will no t allow you to charge differen t fees,” Worley said. “But I have asked and no one has been able to substantiate tha t to me.” After an hour of discussion, council directed Kamosa to contact FRDAP and ask specific questions about how to accomplish the goal of different fees and to return before the deadline.

Aktion Club to hold fundraiser for Jetton Associated PressTALLAHASSEE — Florida will cut unemployment compensation benefits and make it harder for patients to win medical malpractice lawsuits under bills Gov. Rick Scott signed into law Monday. Scott also vetoed three bills, including one (HB 4045) that would have repealed requirements for public reports on nursing homes sanctioned or fined by the state. That was an exception to the Republican governor’s usual stance in favor of reducing business regulations. The unemployment bill (HB 7005) is intended to cut employers’taxes by reducing maximum state benefits for jobless workers. The cap will drop from 26 to 23 weeks if Florida’s unemployment rate is at least 10.5 percent. If it falls below that level the maximum benefits also will decline on sliding scale to as little as 12 weeks for a jobless rate of 5 percent or less. Florida’s unemployment rate stood at 10.6 percent in May. The new law applies only to state benefits, not those provided by the federal government. It won’t affect this year’s tax rates but is expected to cut them by about $18 per worker in 2012. The medical malpractice law (HB 479) was the Florida Medical Association’s top legislative priority. “This bill is a major step forward in making Florida a friendlier place to practice medicine,” said Dr. Madelyn Butler, the association’s president. It includes provisions to curtail testimony against Florida doctors by out-ofstate experts. They will have to get state certification and would face discipline if found to have offered “deceptive or fraudulent” testimony. The new statute also repeals an existing ban on the sale of malpractice insurance policies that give doctors rather than insurance companies the authority to control settlement decisions.

Maj. Mark Schrader of the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office, was a part of the procession that accompanied Jetton from the county line to the Stephenson-Nelson Funeral Home on the Sebring Parkway. Schrader said he saw U.S. 27 lined from Stryker Road in Avon Park to Sebring Parkway with groups of mostly silent people who took the time to step away from work and show their respect. The mood along the Parkway, packed with several hundred men, women and children, was also solemn, but energized emotionally as well. Everyone there focused on honoring a fallen warrior and his grieving family. Over the past week the community had learned about the 21-year-old who grew up in Indiana, but found the love of his life here in Sebring. He leaves her a young widow expecting twins in late August. He also left behind many friends, who have to pause when talking about him to hold back tears, their loss still raw and unbearably painful. Jetton, they said, was the kind of individual who inspired his fellow soldiers to do their best, and still be silly. He lost a contest while on leave, for example, when — deprived of Reese’s peanut butter cups during his long months of training — he bet his friends he could eat 100 at one sitting. He managed only 17 before swearing to never eat one again. Jetton still has one journey to go. His funeral and internment are scheduled for today. Aviewing will proceed the service at the First Baptist Church of Sebring at 10 a.m. The service begins at 11 a.m. All are welcome. Jetton will have a sheriff’s escort from the church to Lakeview Memorial Gardens, where he will be laid to rest.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comHighlands County has seen its share of professional baseball players, but that is somewhat of an anomaly. While the dream is shared by little boys throughout the country, if not the world, the odds are very lopsided against most of them making it. But growing up in this area, perhaps, makes the dream take hold that much more, as was and is the case with Chris Welborn who has taken a step closer toward that achievement as he is now pitching in the independent Pecos League for the Ruidoso Osos in New Mexico. The dream started to take shape on the Dixie League diamonds and continued to form during his years as a Blue Streak. Astrong contributor on both the diamond and the football field, the baseball dreams really took hold after his senior season in 2006. Given the chance to participate in the annual FACA All-Star Baseball Classic at Firemen’s Field, Welborn opened some eyes. “It wasn’t until after the FACAgame that I started getting calls,” he said. “At one point, I was asked to throw for the Tampa Bay Rays the following week.” And that’s when the dream was cemented. “When I threw that first pitch on the top of that mound, I knew then that I wanted to become a professional baseball player.” Nothing further happened to solidify the dream at that point, so Welborn signed on to play for Rick Hitt at SFCC. But while continuing to work toward one dream, the pangs of playing football were tugging at Welborn. Searching for the opportunity to play both sports at the collegiate level, this goal was accomplished at Beloit College in Wisconsin, where he satisfied his football cravings and continued to grow on the baseball field. He would go on to set various Buccaneer records, including appearances and saves, and helped the team to its’first-ever Midwest Conference championship in 2009. Looking back on his amateur years, Welborn has two primary people to thank. “God brought me to these opportunities for a reason,” he said. “But I also don’t know how I could have done it without my dad, he’s been my pitching coach forever. “We were always finding articles and videos that might be useful and he also found the 90 MPH Club (an online instructional and informational site for aspiring pitchers).” The website eventually asked that he post instructional videos and even used him for a feature on his steps toward becoming a professional athlete. But with his college career done, despite his strong showing, the calls for the next step weren’t coming, so Welborn continued to do what he does best, working toward it. Emails and videos were sent out to all sorts of teams, leagues and coaches that went unanswered until late last winter. That’s when the Osos’ called and invited him for a tryout, which lead to him signing on March 12. In six appearances for Ruidoso this season, Welborn is 1-0 with a 1.39 ERA, and he’s also gone 3for-8 at bat for a .375 average. He has a ways to go, he knows, but he does realize he has taken the next step. “Even though my dream SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, June 29, 2011 NASCAR This Week4B Courtesy photo Corbin Hoffner, left, and Set Abeln were featured guests on the Sports TalkŽ show, hosted by Ed Lynch, on Saturday, June 25.

However, the negative stigma that surrounds snakes is completely undeserved. Snakes are in fact extremely beneficial animals to have around. Many snake species prey heavily on insects and rodents. When snake populations decline the populations of these prey items increases, often causing serious problems to people. Insects and other arthropods can destroy gardens or enter people’s homes where they will be undesired. When rodent populations serge they can destroy crops at an alarming rate, effecting supplies of food and industries. They can also spread many harmful diseases. It is well documented that rodents are also a common cause of house fires, started by the chewing of wires in walls and attics. Snakes do humans a tremendous service by helping to minimize all of these threats. Snakes are extremely valuable because they are efficient at keeping the number of rodents and insects in check, without relying on damaging chemical pesticides which can degrade the environment and harm other animal species. Snakes are very effective at hunting such prey because they can crawl into small burrows and other areas that rodents use as shelters. These places are too small for other predators to get into. Snakes are also helping to save the lives of millions of people every year, as the venoms from snakes are being used to treat many serious health ailments like cancers, heart and stroke disease, Parkinsons and many more. However, despite these benefits legions of snakes Is the only good snake a dead snake?

Crowder discussed the subject during the debut of his new twohour weekly talk show on WQAM radio in Miami. “I’ll say hypothetically I don’t have any more of my Florida jerseys,” Crowder said Sunday. “There were some Jacksonville businessmen that really hypothetically liked my play.” Crowder expressed support for quarterback Terrelle Pryor in connection with the scandal at Ohio State. Pryor left the program and coach Jim Tressel resigned amid an NCAAinvestigation into players’ trading of signed equipment, championship rings and other memorabilia to a tattoo-parlor owner for cash and discounted tattoos. The University of Florida declined comment. Crowder’s agent, Joel Segal, didn’t return calls seeking comment.

CHRIS LEHOURITES Associated PressWIMBLEDON, England — Rafael Nadal will play in the Wimbledon quarterfinals despite a left foot injury. The defending champion said Tuesday that his foot, which he injured during Monday’s fourth-round win over Juan Martin del Potro, is not seriously injured. “Yesterday after the match I went to take an MRI at a London hospital,” Nadal said in a statement. “During the match I thought I had something serious but as the match went through the pain got better and thankfully the tests don’t show an injury.” Although Nadal appears to be ready to play on Wednesday, the courts at Wimbledon were not Tuesday as rain returned to the All England Club. The roof over Centre Court started to close just before play was scheduled to begin, so the match between ninth-seeded Marion Bartoli and Sabine Lisicki was temporarily delayed. The second match on Centre Court was to be fifth-seeded Maria Sharapova against Dominika Cibulkova. On Court 1, the opening match between No. 8 Petra Kvitova and Tsvetana Pironkova was being delayed. The second match was to pit Tamira Paszek against fourth-seeded Victoria Azarenka. Also Tuesday, U.S. Open golf champion Rory McIlroy paid a visit to Wimbledon, meeting Andy Murray and John McEnroe. But the biggest news came before the rain when Nadal announced he would be ready to face Mardy Fish in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.

C M Y K are directly killed by fearful people every year. Human fear of snakes is mainly derived from the fact that some species have the ability to inject toxic venom, or from the belief that snakes are notoriously aggressive. However, the snake’s horrible reputation is not deserved. Snakes are very shy, timid, secretive, and generally docile creatures that try to avoid conflict when ever possible. Snakes will not make unprovoked attacks on people. When a person comes in contact with a snake, the animal’s first instinct will be to rapidly flee the area and find shelter. If the snake doesn’t do this, it may just stay perfectly still to try to blend in with the surroundings. Even if the snake is captured, it may still not resort to biting – proof of its gentle demeanor. The snake has several harmless tactics it can resort to as an alternative to biting. The snake may hiss, make mock strikes with a closed mouth, or flail around to try and escape. The following excerpt from University of Georgia Professor Dr. Gibbons speaks for itself: All the snake species tested have had the same initial response to human presence. If given the opportunity, they escape–down a hole, under a ledge, or in the case of cottonmouth snakes, into the water. Escape is even the standard behavior of enormous diamondback rattlesnakes, which will immediately disappear if they have enough warning before they think a person can reach them. The snakes just want us to leave them alone. Snake bites on humans usually only happen when someone is deliberately trying to provoke or harm a snake, and the animal bites purely in self defense. According to NC State University, almost 80 percent of snake bites happen when someone is trying to capture or kill the snake. All these facts show that snakes are not aggressive or evil animals. If you provoke and capture a wild animal, what can you expect but to be bitten since the animal is going to try to defend itself? The key to being safe around snakes is to simply leave them alone. Edward R. Ricciuti’s The Snake Almanac (Lyons Press 2001), states that venomous snakes do not look for people to bite and Mark O’Shea’s Venomous Snakes of the World (Princeton University Press 2005), proclaims that people must realize that snakes are not out to bite them but prefer to be left alone. This is why co-existing with snakes in a respectful manner is the best policy. By TOM FOREMAN Jr. Associated PressRALEIGH, N.C. — It’s one of the most lasting images from the NCAAbasketball tournament. Abuzzer-beating twohanded dunk by muscular forward Lorenzo Charles gives heavy underdog North Carolina State a stunning national championship game win in 1983 versus powerhouse Houston — known as Phi Slamma Jamma. Wolfpack coach Jim Valvano spills onto the court, scrambling for someone to hug. Charles, 47, the hero from that memorable game, was killed Monday when an empty bus he was driving for Elite Coach crashed along Interstate 40 in Raleigh, said general manager Brad Jackson. Charles grabbed Dereck Whittenburg’s 30-foot shot and dunked it to give the Wolfpack the 54-52 win over the Cougars, led by stars Clyde Drexler and Hakeem Olajuwon. It was N.C. State’s second national title and gave Charles a place in school history. Whittenburg was despondent when discussing his teammate and friend with The Associated Press. “It’s just an awful day,” Whittenburg said. “An awful, awful day.” That game in Albuquerque, N.M., capped an improbable run to the championship. N.C. State entered the NCAAtournament with a 1710 record, having beaten Virginia to win the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament and an automatic berth into the national field. No one expected much. “It’s still kind of amazing to me that ... people are still talking about it,” Charles said in an excerpt from his comments about the championship game on his N.C. State Web page. “I remember when (it) first happened, I figured I would have my 15 minutes of fame and that would be it. Here we are and it is still a conversational piece. I don’t really think that was the only great Final Four finish that has been played since then, but for some reason people just single out that game and talk about it. Maybe because it was such a David and Goliath thing.” Police released little about the one-vehicle crash that took Charles’life. Video shows the windshield broken out with tree limbs sticking through the window frame. The rear wheels of the bus were on an embankment, leaving the right front tire elevated from the road. Charles finished his college career two years after the championship win with 1,535 total points — 15th on the school’s scoring list — and his .575 shooting percentage in 1985 remains a school record for seniors. In the 1983 run, Charles hit two free throws with 23 seconds left in the West Regional finals against the Cavaliers to give the Wolfpack a 63-62 win and the spot in the Final Four. Their semifinal win over Georgia sent them to the matchup with the Cougars. Michael Young, director of basketball operations at Houston, was a member of the team that let a national championship slip away. He told KRIV-TVin Houston that he had never quite gotten over Charles’ heroics. “For him to dunk the ball at that moment to win the game, it was one of the most heartbreaking moments I have ever felt in my whole career,” Young said. “Twenty-eight years later, it’s still with me. Every day somebody asks me about it. I thought I was going to get away with it today and then you called me. I’m very sorry to hear what happened.” Valvano also became famous for his emotional burst onto the court afterward, running around almost in disbelief. Jimmy Vdied in 1993 after a very public fight with cancer. N.C. State retired Charles’ No. 43 jersey in 2008, the 25th anniversary of the championship. Current coach Mark Gottfried said his staff had just gotten acquainted with Charles and was saddened to hear the news. “He holds a special place in Wolfpack history and in the hearts of generations of fans,” Gottfried said in a statement. “We just reconnected with him last week and our staff was stunned to hear this terrible news.” ACC Commissioner John Swofford said Charles’play had an uplifting effect. “As a former player, he made us believe in the amazing and all of us in the ACC send out our thoughts and prayers to his entire family,” Swofford said in a statement. Charles played one season in the NBA, averaging 3.4 points in 36 games with the Atlanta Hawks in 1985-86, and played internationally and in the Continental Basketball Association until 1999. Amessage left on a phone listed to Charles wasn’t immediately returned Monday night. Thurl Bailey, one of Charles’teammates on the championship team, said it’s tough to accept that the player who made the game-winning dunk is gone. “But I heard someone say, I was talking to them on the phone about this, that Jimmy Vfinally found somebody to hug,” Bailey told WRAL-TV. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, June 29, 2011Page 5B UNIVERSAL CENTER OF NATURAL MA; 3.639"; 5"; Black; 06/29/11; 0 0 0 0 9 8 0 9 UNIVERSAL CENTER OF NATURAL MA; 3.639"; 5"; Black; 06/29/11; 0 0 0 0 9 8 0 9 Continued from 1B Snakes prefer flight to bite By BETH HARRIS Associated PressandGREG RISLING Associated PressLOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers are headed to bankruptcy court, with owner Frank McCourt hoping a Delaware judge approves his plan to stabilize the financially troubled franchise. McCourt has obtained $150 million in interim financing from a hedge fund, but it’s subject to approval by the court in a hearing Tuesday. If approved, McCourt would meet Thursday’s payroll deadline and could remain in charge of the club he bought in a highly leveraged deal in 2004. “The action taken today by Mr. McCourt does nothing but inflict further harm to this historic franchise,” Baseball commissioner Bud Selig said in a statement Monday. The team is deep into the red, with former players owed millions. Even Hall of Fame announcer Vin Scully is due more than $150,000 as part of his contract, court documents show. Legal observers expect MLB to contest McCourt’s request for filing bankruptcy, arguing the dispute should remain within the confines of baseball. Baseball’s constitution allows Selig to take control of a team that seeks Chapter 11 protection. MLB would have to file a motion to seek termination of the franchise. Aperson familiar with the filing, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the situation is still in flux, said MLB will wait to see what happens in the hearing before deciding which way to go. The main issue is whether “the bankruptcy court maintains control of the proceedings or acquiesce to baseball,” said Edward Ristaino, who chairs the sports practice at the law firm Akerman Senterfitt. In court documents, team Vice Chairman Jeff Ingram cited a significant drop in attendance, contributing about 10 percent of Dodger revenues to the league’s sharing program last year, and paying about $22 million in deferred compensation as reasons for filing bankruptcy. “To date, LAD has remained current in its obligations,” Ingram wrote. “However, LAD is now on the verge of running out of cash, the results of a perfect storm of events.” McCourt has taken out loans to stay afloat this season but his mounting financial problems were expected to balloon this week, when he owed tens of millions of dollars to meet payroll and other obligations. About $20 million is slated for current and deferred compensation by Thursday, while more than $18 million is required as a reserve to prefund money to be paid to players in 2012 under terms of the collective bargaining agreement, court documents show. The bankruptcy filing lists assets of up to $1 billion and debts up to $500 million. The Dodgers are obligated to pay $92.5 million in guaranteed player contracts, not including signing bonuses, and the team has nearly 300 full-time employees. It also noted a $67 million loan taken out against t he parking lots at Dodge r Stadium was set to mature Thursday. It was expected McCour t was going to refinance the loan. Among the 40 larges t unsecured claims, totaling about $75 million, are former Dodgers slugger Manny Ramirez at nearly $21 million; New York Yankees outfielder Andruw Jones a t $11 million; pitcher Hiroki Kuroda at $4.4 million; shortstop Rafael Furcal a t $3.7 million; and the Chicago White Sox, who are owed $3.5 million for outfielder Juan Pierre. Selig said the Dodgers’ financial woes were “caused by Mr. McCourt’s excessive debt and his diversion o f club assets for his own personal needs. We have consistently communicated to Mr. McCourt that any potential solution to his problems that contemplates mortgaging the future of the Dodgers franchise to the long-term detriment of the club, its loyal fans and the game of baseball would no t be acceptable.” McCourt blames his financing woes on Selig’s refusal to approve a multibillion-dollar TVdeal, which would have provided McCourt with $385 million up front and was vital to a binding settlement reached this month by him and exwife Jamie McCourt as par t of their divorce. “He’s turned his back on the Dodgers, treated us differently, and forced us to the point we find ourselves in today,” McCourt said abou t Selig in a statement. Associated Press writer Robert Jablon in Los Angeles and AP Sports Writer Dave Campbell in Minneapolis contributed to this report. Dodgers file for bankruptcy “Today I will practice at 4:30 p.m. and I’ll play tomorrow,” Nadal said. Nadal, a two-time champion at the All England Club, hurt his foot in the first set of Monday’s win over del Potro. He twice called for a trainer during the set, but still managed to win 7-6 (6), 3-6, 7-6 (4), 6-4. Nadal said he felt something “crush” and thought his foot might be broken. He said he even contemplated retiring from the match. Nadal is 30-2 at Wimbledon since the start of the 2006 tournament. He lost to Roger Federer that year and the next in the final, but then beat the Swiss in the 2008 championship match. Nadal was unable to defend his title in 2009 because of injury, but he won again in 2010. The top-ranked Spaniard also won his sixth French Open title this month, equaling Bjorn Borg’s record. Overall, Nadal has won 10 major titles, including one at the Australian Open and one at the U.S. Open.

C M Y K www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, June 29, 2011Page 11B FOOD FAMILYFEATURES Gardens, farmers markets and grocery store aisles are brimming with fresh seasonal produce.What better way to enjoy those fantastic flavors all year long than by gathering friends and family to share nature’s bounty by canning together? “Canning together is easy, and it’s fun to make memories and great food,” says Mrs. Wages spokeswoman Laura Strickland. Strickland recommends your group plan ahead to divvy up the canning supplies and that everyone bring different fruits or vegetables to share so you all can take home a variety of canned goodies.Equipment You NeedGlass canning jars Rings and lids Anon-reactive potHot water bath canner with a rackJar lifterCanning funnel Pasta Sauce Yields 5 pints 6 pounds fresh tomatoes (about 18 medium) 1/4 cup granulated sugar 1 pouch (5 ounces) Mrs. Wages Pasta Sauce Mix Wash fresh tomatoes. Scald 3 minutes in boiling water. Dip into cold water. Cut out cores, remove skins and puree to smooth consistency in blender or food processor. Combine puree, sugar and pasta sauce mix in a large pot and bring to a boil. Stir occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer 25 minutes. Stir occasionally. Pasta sauce is ready. Serve it: Ready to use, or pour into containers and refrigerate up to one week. Freeze it: Pour into freezer containers and let cool. Store in freezer up to one year. Can it: Pour hot sauce into clean, sterilized pint canning jars,leaving1/2inchheadspace.Capeachjarwhenfilled. Process 40 minutes* in boiling water bath. Test jars for airtight seals according to manufacturer’s directions. Store up to one year. If jars do not completely seal, refrigerate and consume within one week.Raspberry-Jalapeo JamYields 7 half pints 2 to 3 jalapeo peppers, stemmed and deveined 5 cups or5 half-pint containers raspberries 6 cups granulated sugar 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1box (1.75 ounces) Mrs. Wages Home Jell Fruit Pectin Clean and sterilize jars, lids and rings.

Process immediately in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes.* Note: Processing time for all recipes is listed for altitudes less than 1000 feet. At altitudes of 1000 feet or more, increase processing time 1 minute for each 1000 feet of altitude.Preserving produce, making memories Canning 101 TipsUse the freshest produce you can find. The fresher the ingredients, the better the taste of the final product.Pickling salt is a finely milled salt, with no anti-caking additives, that dissolves cleanly and quickly. Pectin is a very fine, water-soluble fiber that helps create a stable gelled preserve. With Mrs. Wages products, you don’t need specialty spices or ingredients. Mrs. Wages uses high-quality, 100 percent natural ingredients in their spice mixes. Fill jars quickly, so they won’t cool on the table or counter. Use a wide-mouth funnel and avoid spilling liquid on the rim of the jar, where it may interfere with a good seal.Wash and rinse jars thoroughly. Set jars in clean, hot water until used. If using dishwasher, keep jars in dishwasher until ready to use. For reasons of food safety, do not alter recipes.

C M Y K Associated PressGARY, Ind. — Hundreds of Michael Jackson fans have marked the two-year anniversary of the singer’s death by gathering for a memorial outside the Gary home where he grew up. The Times of Munster reports that revelers swayed to Jackson’s songs during Saturday night’s tribute. Poets, local singers and dancers also entertained the crowd. Mayor Rudy Clay welcomed visitors to the event and proclaimed the city will not stop celebrating Jackson’s memory. Jackson died on June 25, 2009, of an overdose of sedatives at the age of 50, just before he was to begin a comeback tour. Thirty-year-old Marshall Bingaman of Kansas City, Mo., says he made a ninehour drive to Gary to pay tribute to Jackson’s life. Bingaman says events like Saturday’s memorial help keep Jackson’s memory alive. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, June 29, 2011Page 13B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; 06/24, 06/26, 06/29; 0 0 0 0 9 6 5 1 DIVERSIONS SAYWHAT?!By PATRICK BERRY ACROSS 1 Nursery sounds 6 Batess MiseryŽ costar 10 Compadre 15 Having more than one band 19 Weapon, e.g., in military-speak 20 Regarding 21 Something well-preserved? 22 ___ avis 23 Ive heard enough, retail outlet!Ž 25 I agree completely, dog-eared bit of paper!Ž 27 What you might get by moving a head? 28 Stop right where you are, picture holder!Ž 30 One if by land, two if by seaŽ and others 31 Extinguished, with outŽ 33 Spots before your eyes? 34 Alaska Purchase negotiator 35 Symbol of royalty in old Egypt 36 Skunk, e.g. 38 Big-screen canine 40 Jeans brand 41 The majority 44 Youre in danger, tall hill!Ž 49 Surname in a Poe tale 51 Check out 52 Like racehorses 53 Objectivist Rand 54 The chair doesnt recognize you, steakhouse and chophouse!Ž 59 Before, to Byron 60 Scorecard blemish 61 Lift provider 62 Vessels with spouts 65 Light TV fare 67 Sticky seedcase 68 Explorer Richard Byrds plane 70 Writing surface 71 Make nonsensical notes? 73 Roast V.I.P. 75 Work in the field 76 Id be miserable without you, tapestry!Ž 80 D.C.-based news source 82 Australias Lake ___ National Park 83 See 93-Across 84 Inasmuch as 85 Goodbye, place I used to live!Ž 89 Philip with a 1975 best seller on C.I.A. secrets 90 Sistine Chapel ceiling figure 91 Like many sunscreens 92 Cessation 93 Is 83-Across 95 Big name in California wine 97 Endorsers need 99 Another name for Buddha 103 Speak for everyone in the room 104 Just keep doing what youre doing, suitcases!Ž 109 One of the Bobbsey twins 110 I read you loud and clear, breakfast meat!Ž 112 It was all my fault, gun attachment!Ž 114 Over again 115 Pop singer Lopez 116 Addition to caf 117 Keys in a chain 118 Amount thats settled for 119 Caddies offering 120 This looks like trouble!Ž 121 Manicurists aid DOWN 1 Some nest builders 2 Lacking color 3 Diesel engine manufacturer 4 Rented out 5 Packs 6 Checked out before robbing 7 Athlete who wrote Off the CourtŽ 8 Complete 9 Youre mistakenŽ 10 Certificate on a wall, maybe 11 ___ PearlŽ (Jackson 5 hit) 12 Gossip subject 13 One thats passed along 14 Brute of fantasy 15 Sign symbol 16 Kipling poem about Burma 17 Lack of constraints 18 James of X-MenŽ films 24 Lay the groundwork 26 Great body 29 Old West gambling game 32 Inevitable 34 RugratsŽ father 36 ___ artist (film crew member) 37 Soprano pineapple and others, briefly 38 Con ___ (tenderly) 39 Something that shouldnt be flat 41 Patrons of the arts 42 Green-skinned god 43 Old Jewish community 44 Pines 45 Puss in BootsŽ figure 46 Former carrier name 47 Land heavily 48 Acronymic weapon 50 Mr. ___Ž (1983 Styx hit) 55 19th Amendment beneficiaries 56 Cable network with the motto Not reality.

Our aunts would cook their traditional family favorites. Our uncles would grill something to go along with all that wonderful food. There was a family rivalry for who could make the best pie. What ever happened to those wonderful family gathering? Did we get too busy? This afternoon I had the pleasure of spending time with someone else’s family. For a couple of weeks, Jack Tinsley has been in our hometown filming what makes living in Transylvania County, N.C. a special place to live. Jack grew up here. I had the pleasure of choosing to live here in 1994. As the finale of the two weeks of filming, Jack brought his family together for the last part of his film. I knew back then that this was a great place to visit. When I had the opportunity to move here, I jumped in with my fishing waders. In fact I moved to Transylvania to fly fish. Over half of our county is Pisgah National Forest, The Blue Ridge Parkway, DuPont State Forest and Gorges State Park. From any point in our area you can be sitting by a stream in just a few minutes. This year we are celebrating our sesquicentennial. Not only is this a great place to live but it is an even better place to work and build a business. Our community is supportive of people who turn their ideas into jobs for our residents. We work together to help one another. If you are reading this essay from our local newspaper, The Transylvania Times, you are truly blessed to live in our wonderful community. If you are reading this someplace else; then take some time this summer to come join us as we celebrate our 150th Anniversary. If you can’t make it to our neck of the woods check your local newspaper and websites to find out what is happening for your family to enjoy. Plan a pot luck get together for your family or better yet one for your neighborhood. The one thing I loved most about today was the music. Get your friends and family to bring their musical instruments. The mountain string band called Crooked Pine played for us today. I used to work for Marion at Earthshine Mountain Lodge and Frank and I worked together at the Brevard Music Center. If you get a chance, check out their music, http://www.crookedpineband.com/ It is music that makes our heart sing. When you have that pot luck, ask all those wonderful cooks to share the recipes with everyone. Today I watched as these great cooks shared the history of their favorite dish. Many of them had been handed down for generations. I got to share my Heart Attack Baked Beans with the Tinsley Family. They were a big hit. Have a safe holiday weekend.

Food, music and family traditions FLY Lady Leanne Ely DearAbby: I’m a 16year-old gangbanger looking at spending the rest of my life isolated in a little bird cage. Every day I ask myself the same question. Was it really worth throwing my life away? All I did was help a “homeboy” from getting hurt. I got caught and was convicted on eight charges that led to more than four consecutive life sentences. That ain’t no joke. The sad part of it is that the so-called homeboy turned his back on me when I needed him most. I should’ve pulled away when I could’ve. The main reason for this letter is to help parents and teens like myself who are choosing the wrong path to realize what you’re getting into while there is still time. Tell parents out there, if you see your kid is messing up in school, using drugs, hanging with the wrong crowd, anything that would lead to gang affiliation, reach out and help them while you still can before they’re in too deep. They (teens) turn toward gang life in search of the love they need from their family. Or they want to fit in and be cool. To all the gangbangers who think you’re cool and being a gangster, get away from it while you still can. It may be fun at the moment, but it’s not when you get caught and you have to spend the rest of your life behind bars. There’s better things to do in life than hang around all day frying your brain from all the drugs and alcohol. Trust me, when you’re behind bars thinking about what you did, you’ll be missing your family the most. You think your homeboys are going to be there for you? Well, let me tell you this ... they’re not. I guarantee you that the only people who are actually willing to change places with you are your parents. Your real family. Do you think your homeboys want to do time for you? Hell, no. I hope this letter helps some people out there. I just want to make a contribution to society before I get locked up in the dungeon forever. This is to show you not all gangbangers are evil and cruel. Life is short. Live it smart, not stupid. Now I can finally answer the question I ask myself, “Was it all worth it?” The money, the girls and all the material things go faster than you think and could all be taken away with the snap of a finger from the split second of a decision you make. It’s not worth your life. – Homesick Homeboy DearHomesick: You write well and your letter contains a powerful message. I’m printing it without editing. Let your experience be a warning to others. I hope from the sad circumstances of your life some other young person will realize that a gang is a poor substitute for a family and the path to success does not stop at the street corner. If a troubled young person is in school, he or she should talk to a counselor. If there is a church nearby, talk to a priest or minister. There are alternatives to joining a gang, but you need to reach out. DearAbby: Last week a dear friend, Betty, passed away. She was a former neighbor and the kindest, gentlest, most patient soul I ever met. Although she was twice my age, we became good friends – proof that age knows no boundaries. Two days after Betty died, I was on a work break. I had been thinking about her all morning and how she had influenced my life. Just then I saw a penny on the floor and picked it up. It was a 1992 penny – the year Betty and I first met. I knew right then it was a message from her letting me know she is OK. I’ll carry that penny with me always in remembrance of her. Abby, this letter is my tribute to her, and a reminder to all who read it: Cherish your friends. You never know how long they – or you – will be around. – Tom in Santa Maria, Calif. DearTom: That’s true. And it’s why we should make the most of every day and spend each one wisely.

C M Y K LIVING 14B PAGE News-Sun Wednesday, June 29, 2011 FAMILYFEATURES T he Fourth of July calls for a carefree party, with good friends, fab food, fun and fireworks — a real star-studded holiday celebration. The entertaining experts from Wilton have plenty of ideas to add star power to the occasion, beginning with the decorations. Festive stars and stripes napkin rings in red, white and blue dress up napkins and containers of colorful blossoms to brighten up the table. Then, on to the main course. Serve an all-American favorite meal of grilled burgers and corn on the cob, appropriately topped with a star-shaped pat of butter. The grand finale is always part of this all-American celebration. Patriotic Pops cut into star shapes definitely say “Happy Fourth of July.” Decorated in red, white and blue icing, red licorice and colored candies, these easy-to-make crispy rice treats are a favorite for both youngsters and the grown-ups. The kids can lend a hand to help decorate by placing the candy pieces on the stars. Add a taste of nostalgia for the child in all of us with Ice Cream Sandwiches — everybody loves ’em. Homemade brownies and buttery vanilla cookies, sandwiched with the ice cream flavor of your choice are a cut above ice cream truck offerings. The new ice cream sandwich pan from Wilton ensures perfectly shaped cookies for every treat. Give them the flair of the Fourth by rolling the edges in patriotic sprinkles and sugars.
