C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY email@example.comSEBRING The day began with an opaque, silver gray sky. Combat veterans, wearing their motorcycle club leathers and insignia, stood protectively in a semicircle, facing the First Baptist Church of Sebrings main doors. They held American flags. Slowly, people began to arrive, the first to deliver their condolences in person during the visitation hour, and then for the 11 a.m. service the final farewell to Private First Class Joshua Jetton, the 21-year-old soldier who was shot and killed June 20 while serving in Kunar Province, Afghanistan. The gathering was large; the people respectful. Joshua Jettons widow, Alicia Moore Jetton, teaches in the First Baptist Church of Sebrings preschool program, as does another member of her family. Weve known them a long time, David Richardson, senior pastor at First Baptist Church of Sebring, said in explaining why the church so quickly provided support.

Ive heard enough, said Commissioner Greg Harris, who made the motion to extend the suspension of the fees until July 1, 2012. I dont think we need impact fees for a long time. Most of those that spoke at the public meeting were in support of suspending the fees for at least a year, and one idea floated out there was to eliminate the fees completely. But one group was for reinstating the fees Oct. 1. The impact fee committee voted 6-2 to put the fees back into effect with the start of the fiscal year, according to County Engineer Ramon Gavarrete, who was responsible for presenting the agenda item to the board. Chip Boring, representing 513 Realtors in the Heartland Realtors Association, and also the chairman of the Impact Fee Committee, stated that he was not at the meeting when the vote was made and called a reinstatement of the fees the death blow for the construction and real estate industries. I cant say how the vote would have went if there was a full compliment of the board in attendance, but I can say that I would not have supported the motion, Boring said about the committee vote. Close to 45 Realtors stood in support of Borings statements at the request of Chairwoman Barbara Stewart. Marlene Barger, representing the Group for Better Government, also read a letter Impact fees to remain at bay And they who for their country die shall fill an honored grave, for glory lights the soldiers tomb, and beauty weeps the brave.JOSEPHDRAKE American poet (1795-1820) By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY email@example.comAVON PARK Interim city manager Julian Deleon warned the city council at its regular Monday meeting that tough choices lay ahead, but he was still hopeful the city could balance its budget without laying off workers. Wednesday night, however, Deleon notified the NewsSun that three workers do have to be laid off. Deleon said he regretted having to take the action, but at the moment no other options remained. Acombination of uncontrollable costs primarily pension contributions and rising insurance rates and reductions in revenue the city now takes in $777,000 less than it did in 2009 has created a $270,000 deficit in the 20112012 budget.

The issue revolved around whether or not the district should look first to former or current local teachers in filling positions, or hire from outside. Board members Ned Hancock and Andy Tuck have concerns regarding the policy. Vivianne Waldron, director of Human Resources, told the board that when openings occur, the district advertises in-house before advertising in publications and on Web sites outside the district. She said this process was part of an agreement with the teachers union. I just want to be sure were getting the very best people, Tuck said. Hancock agreed, saying, If we dont advertise outside, how do we know were getting the best applicants? There is no way to know if we dont advertise outside School board debates policy for advertising jobs News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY School board member Bill Brantley (left) and school superintendent Wally Cox exchange ideas during a discussion of teacher recruitment Monday night.

C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR s email@example.comSEBRING Agroup of talented women have beenw orking diligently on a project that will bring smiles to t he faces of some of Highlands Countys sick anda iling children. The Central Florida chapter of Quilts for Kids has recently completed 54 different quilts that will be donat-e d to pediatric patients at Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center in Sebring. Eight women have been sewing quilts sinceD ecember. Each of the quilts is different in pattern, color and decor. Quilts for Kids Central Florida coordinator Claudia Hopkins was thrilled at the amount of quilts that had been made. It is such a thrill to have people in the community that care enough to take time to do something and give back, Hopkins said. The quilters find that using their hobby for a good cause is fulfilling and enjoyable. Florida Hospital director of volunteer services Carole Seifert was present Wednesday to pick up the quilts. Seifert was surprised at the number of quilts that the ladies had created. ow. These are just amazing, Seifert said. According to Pat Villere, one of the quilters, the majority of the quilt can be completed in one day depending on the detail and patterns. Many of the ladies created multiple quilts. The bright colors and animals spread all over Heart to Heart Fabrics in Avon Park brought a smile to many of the quiltersfaces. Quilts for Kids is a nonprofit organization that works hard to provide things for children that they can not get in a hospital. Often times when kids are sick in the hospital they arent able to get a teddy bear or stuffed animal in their rooms. These quilts give them something unique and sentimental to hang on to while they are in there, Hopkins said. Quilts for Kids will hand over the quilts to the hospital next week. Seifert and her volunteers plan to hand out the blankets to children in the upcoming weeks. ith the holiday coming up, not many more children will be admitted so we will wait and give them to as many kids as possible. We just dont want them sitting around, Seifert said. The Quilts for Kids organization meets the last Wednesday of every month at Heart to Heart Fabrics. Villere and Hopkins invite local residents that are interested to come by or contact for any information. e are raffling off a hand-made quilt. Tickets are $1. All the money will go to Quilts for Kids, Villere said. Anyone interested in joining must have their own sewing machine. Quilters do not have to be very experienced the organizationp repares kits that include all the patterns and pieces that w ould be needed to create the top portion of a quilt.Q uilters can work in the store with the group during the monthly meeting or in their own home. For more information or to m ake contributions, contact Hopkins at (321 centralfloridaQFK@gmail.co m/. Contributions of fabric are w elcomed, but all fabric must be 100 percent cotton and of good quality.

Council members Ray Royce and Debra Worley voted for the 1.5 percenti ncrease and Steve Bastardi opposed the motion. The request came from town employees who are forced by a change in state law to contribute 3 percent to their own p ension plans stating on July 1. The pay increase is just for three months, July, August and September, and even though Royce made the motion, he did not want to go the full 3p ercent s get this straight, the changes in the law does not cut anyones pay. It reduces the amount that is taken home by 3 percent, said Royce. Sometime in the middle of the year, the federal government cut the employee contribution to social security, giving employees about 2 percent more in their pay check. No one volunteered to give t hat back to the town, Royce said. Royce volunteered the 1.5 percent instead of the full 3 percent in order to balance the amount of take-home pay after the social security break, he said. P olice Chief Phil Williams presented the issue on behalf of the employees, and confirmed that the request for the short term, not the long term. The employees have not had a raise i n two years, and this kind of caught everyone by surprise, Williams said. e just want to put the money back into the employees take-home pay.

Brian Backus inA fghanistans Kandahar province, a Facebook t ribute page was launched in the 21-yearold warriors honor. I have never met this soldier, the pages unidentified creator wrote o n June 21. But I felt this page was needed for t his fallen hero. More than a thousand people have since liked the page, including many of the Harbor Beach,M ich., soldiers relatives, friends and fellow troops. People who hadnt seen Pfc. Backus in years have also been sharing fond memories. I used to babysit B rian and his brother Lisa Bain posted on June 2 3. e will always remember him as a smart, energetic boy who insisted on having his back scratched during bed-t ime. The heartfelt messages of support are comforting the Backus family duringa time of unrelenting g rief. It means more to us than you can imagine, the fallen heros grieving mother, Anne Backus, posted on June 22. To see that our son, Brian, touched so many lives helps ease the pain of loss. Facebook communities like this one harness the staggering toll of the ongoing Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts. As the national media obsess over next years presidential election and the Casey Anthony trial, these posts, filled with genuine compassion and raw emotion, remind us that we are still a nation at war. Another 21-year-old fallen hero, Pfc. Josue Ibarra, made the ultimate sacrifice while conducting combat operations in Afghanistans Helmand province on June 19. In the dark hours following the tragedy, a Facebook page was quickly, caringly created to celebrate the Marines life. ou wanted to protect us; you did protect us, Dennis Ly wrote on June 23. Theres no way we can thank you in person now, but what we can do is live out the rest of our lives to the fullest and to the most positive way we can for Josue.

C M Y K Not only will crass partisanship hopefully be restrained, but the process will be more open and transparent. ... For the first time lawmakers will have to redraw legislative and congressional districts according to standards set forth in two amendments to the Florida Constitution that voters approved last November. Amendments 5 and 6, collectively known as Fair Districts, give politicians far less leeway than they have previously enjoyed and abused. In the past, districts didnt so much reflect geographic boundaries as they did narrow political and demographic concerns. Legislators used sophisticated computer programs to crunch census data and engineer meandering, bizarrely shaped districts that cherry-picked voters. Because the majority party in the Legislature controls the redistricting process, it had the power to create districts that were virtually guaranteed to elect a representative of the majority. ... Fair Districts has changed that. The twin measures require districts to be compact, to utilize existing political and geographical boundaries and not to favor incumbents or any party, while at the same time protecting minority voting rights. The amendments dont remove politics from redistricting, but they should force lawmakers to treat voters more as members of communities. ... Many complain that the new restrictions require lawmakers to comply with conflicting standards, and their imperfect products will be subject to legal challenges. They fear that several new districts either will violate the state constitution or they will run afoul of the federal Voting Rights Act. In part to rebut those charges, the Legislature has included the public in the process. It is soliciting input online at www.floridaredistricting.org and www.flsenate.gov/Redistricting where Floridians can use the same tools lawmakers have to create their own redistricting maps and submit them to the reapportionment committees. ... So speak your mind. You cant accuse politicians of ignoring your opinion if you never offered it in the first place. Go on the record by voicing an idea or submitting a redistricting plan, check out others and then compare them to what the Legislature comes up with.

Should you see a baby deer (fawn) that is in the field or grassy area, do not approach it or pick it up. The mother deer (doe) is most likely around and can hear the baby up to a mile away. If you are mowing or cleaning in a field or wooded area, leave the area so that the deer is safe. If you have dog(s), keep them away from the baby deer. Dog(s) are known to attack baby deer and either harm or kill the deer. Deer have natural predators that they have to contend with. They dont need humans to be a problem for them as well. Be careful when driving down the roads that you know may have deer in the area. Alot of accidents happen when deer run onto the road in front of motor vehicles then car/truck will try to avoid hitting them and run off the road. If you see a baby deer and you think that either the mother has been killed, or there are flies around the deer or anything else that may be a problem with the baby deer, then you need to either call Florida Fish and Wildlife office or a local rehabilitation center in your area. Either one will advise what to do. Dont take a baby deer home. It is against the law to have one in your care. Remember, nature will take care of itself if left alone. Only rescue if the animal is either injured or abandoned. If not sure, call someone. The number of Wredes Wildlife Center is 385-2770; Florida Fish and Wildlife is (888) 404-3922 or (863) 648-3200. David Wrede Wredes Wildlife Rehabilitation Center Inc.Honoring a fallen local heroEditor: We want to thank everyone of you who took time to honor PFC Joshua Jetton, theSebring young man who gave the ultimatesacrifice to his country in Afghanistan last week and was brought home this (Tuesday) morning. We spoke to the group of veterans who drove their motorcycles in the procession and they said that the crowds all the way from Orlando to Sebring were something to be proud of. On Sebring Parkway they had a fire truck from Sebring on one side of the road, a fire truck from Avon Park on the other side.They joined their ladders together in the middle of the street to form a huge arch, then hung a huge flag from the center. This was where the procession passed under heading toward the funeral home with PFC Jettons casket. Quite moving. Both sides of the street were covered with people holding flags all the way from U.S. 27 to the funeral home, not a space to be had. May God bless and comfort the family ... and thank you again for your participation. John (Jack) Nelson President The Highlands Tea Party BouquetAmazing Race was amazingEditor: Having just finished our second Amazing Race for the Childrens Museum, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the many businesses, organizations, and people that made this fantastic event such a wonderful experience. Our prize sponsor, Positive Medical Transport, was wonderful along with the following sponsors: Alan Jay Automotive, SJ Hartt and Sons, Central Florida Glass, Allan DixonAllstate Insurance and Swaine and Leidel. Jessica Hartline Allstate Insurance, Brenner Pottery, Ridge Water Filter Systems, Still Chic Boutique, First Presbyterian Church, Barbara Boss, Florida Hospital, Glades Electric, Ridge Florist, Heartland Imports, Highlands Independent Bank, Boss Business Solutions, Highlands Today, Baker PreCast and Avon Park Rotary also made donations for the race. We would like to give a big thank you to Papa Johns for providing delicious pizza for all of our hungry teams and workers. Thanks also to the following businesses that let us use their facilities as locations for the race. Home and Office Essentials, Baker PreCast, Cohan Radio, Duffers Sports Grill, River Greens, Avon Park Middle School, Banana Splits, Avon Park Rotary, Woodlawn Elementary, Sebring International Raceway and South Ridge Ag were gracious enough to allow our teams onto their property where they looked for clues, made concrete manhole covers, tasted ice cream, memorized poems and attempted various unusual challenges. The competing teams had a wonderful time with all of the challenges and enjoyed finding new locations and learning about Highlands County. Avery special thank you goes to our volunteer judges Brenda Nelson, Caroline Livingston, Bobby and Anne Baker, Meredith Lutz, Robert Brown, Jean Federico, Megan Darr, Tina Gottus, Cathy Hardesty, Craig Crowder, Becky Travers, Pat Pella and Barry Foster. None of this would have happened without the help of the planning committee. Cathy Hardesty, Craig Crowder, and Tina Gottus spent many hours working on locations and challenges to make the day special. Thank you to everyone that made this fundraiser truly special. Linda Crowder Director Childrens Museum of the Highlands Another viewpoint Legislative reapportionment happens in Florida every 10 years. But it has never occurred the way it will this census cycle. I drove through my old neighborhood a few weeks ago. It is like many suburban neighborhoods that sprouted up in the 1960s. Many of the people who moved there grew up in the city. All of them wanted big yards in which their kids could play. Many wanted to be near St. Germaine Catholic Church and its elementary school. We moved into our new house in 1964, when I was 2. It was a basic, square house brick on the bottom, white siding on the top designed for raising children. And there were a lot of children. I was born at the tail end of the baby boom. Neighbor kids were everywhere. The Gillens had four; the Bennetts, three; the Greenaways, four; the Kriegers, five ... It was a traditional time, to be sure. Fathers worked and worried about the bills. Most mothers stayed home and worried about the kids. But there was less to worry about then. Moms ran the neighborhood. Kids were free to play. One summer, the fad was to make skateboards by nailing old roller skates onto two-foot pieces of 2by-4. So many kids rode their skateboards down Tracy Drive, the pavement turned gray. When the young families moved into their new homes, a lot of work needed to be done. Grass, shrubs and trees were planted. Concrete patios and driveways were poured. Porch roofs were built, basements remodeled into family rooms. Most of the fathers were in their 20s then. They spent Saturdays helping each other. They enjoyed breaking a sweat and drinking a few ice-cold beers. Most every decision these young parents made was based on the needs of their children. The principles they lived by were simple. They treated their children as little souls that God gave them to watch over. They wanted them to have a solid moral foundation and good education. Most of us attended St. Germaine School. Despite the struggles these parents encountered all people, rich and poor, encounter struggles most stayed married. Most believed they would be together until death do us part. More than a decade ago, after my parents moved out of the neighborhood, they threw a party for the old neighbors in their new house. I tended bar at the event. The last time I had seen many of these people had been more than 20 years earlier, when I was still a kid myself. At the party, I had a chance to learn about these good people. Every person in that room was a child of the Depression who came from nothing. One told stories of how the row house he grew up in was freezing cold in the morning. He wouldnt get out of bed until he heard his father go down to the basement to fire up some coal. Another told me that for nearly 20 years of his marriage, he worked three jobs 60 hours a week to keep up with the bills. In spite of the fact that they hadnt saved much money and worried about their futures, they married young, had families right away and worked hard. They scrimped and saved and gradually built a wonderful world for themselves and their children. And every one of them raised children who are all doing well in life. These good people are in their 70s and 80s now. Theyre retired and living the good life. They have plenty to celebrate. It was my honor to spend an evening with them.

Joshua Jetton to his burial site in Lakeview Memorial Gardens Wednesday afternoon. lay in his coffin in full dress uniform. There is no pain greater than the pain of saying goodbye to a loved one, Lt. Col. Chaplain John E. Hugus said during the service. What can you say? But, I know that the word of God can pierce the darkness each of you are feeling. The service came to a close with the song Amazing Grace. By the time the long funeral procession arrived at Lakeview Memorial Gardens, the high overcast was gone, the sky filled with low lying clouds of gray to black. Thunder rumbled in the distance. Yet, the rains held off. The mood, however, was somber and subdued as if nature itself was expressing sorrow. Despite the weather, families and individuals stood along the side of the road, holding umbrellas and waving small American flags as the hearse and the Jetton family drove by, accompanied by at least 100 veterans riding motorcycles, sheriffs deputies with their patrol car lights flashing and strangers, there to honor a brave young man killed in battle just as his life was beginning. Hugus and Pastor Richardson led Jettons coffin, carried by six honor guard pallbearers, from the hearse to his burial site, which was protected from the weather by a green canvas tent. His family huddled among themselves close to the coffin, the mourners circling around them as if they were forming a shield to keep the family safe. The graveside military rites, with their long history and formality, added a bittersweet poignancy the slow motion salutes, the folding of the flag and returning it to the family, the gun salute, the playing of Taps. Throughout the graveside service, the clouds grew darker and the sound of thunder grew closer, but still it did not rain. Near the end of the ceremony, Vicki Leisy DiGiovanni, representing the national organization Blue Star Mothers (mothers of men and women on active duty) told Jettons family that (Joshua) is definitely among the stars. His job now is to watch over and guard his fellow warriors. It was only after Jetton was safely at rest that the rain poured down.

C M Y K tinued. We wont let you down. After coordinating on Facebook, Pfc. Ibarras community didnt let him down. When the Marine returned to Midland, Texas, in a flag-draped casket, city streets were lined with patriotic supporters. When an American service member is killed in action, fellow troops are deeply affected. Facebook pages like the one memorializing Pfc. Eric Soufrine, 20, of Woodbridge, Conn., give grieving warriors a place to pour out their hearts. As a soldier also raised in Connecticut just returning from Afghanistan, Id like to thank you for your service, and for making the ultimate sacrifice, Tara LaDore posted on June 17. Though Ive never met you, you are my brother in arms and you will never be forgotten. Pfc. Soufrine, who died on June 14 in Afghanistans Farah province when terrorists attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device, had a girlfriend who couldnt wait for him to come home. As wars harshest reality sinks in, the Facebook page is painful but also therapeutic for Paige Woodward. We were supposed to have such an amazing life together, she posted on June 16. But I promise you, I will see you in heaven eventually, and we will pick up where we left off. Pvt. Ryan Larson, 19, hailed from a tiny Wisconsin village called Friendship. Since his June 15 combat death in Afghanistans Kandahar province, more than 2,000 people -nearly three times his towns population -have liked a Facebook page in tribute to their friend. To see men and women, old and young, rich and poor, all races, types, personalities, and positions in our community all as one yesterday for Ryan was so amazing, Izzy Jackson wrote on June 26. God was shining his light down yesterday to welcome Ryan home. During past conflicts, Americans could not instantly connect to wars being fought by our friends and neighbors, nor could families of the fallen visit virtual communities filled with memories of their loved ones. In the 21st century, through these interactive, invaluable tribute groups, parents can teach their children about the indelible sacrifices being made in Afghanistan and Iraq. I never met these four fallen heroes. But today, thanks in part to four remarkable Facebook pages, they are dearly missed.

The list approved by c ouncil included citizens of the town and county, as w ell as those who favored the idea of an administrator and those who opposed,a ccording to Barger. e wanted different v iews on this, but we wanted folks who would have an open mind on both sides and who would be willing to listen and evaluateo pposing views, Barger told an approving council. B arger also asked the council to put forward ideas of what they thought wouldb e the most important issue concerning the town over t he next five years. The approved list of committee members i ncludes: Shelagh Byatt, owner of Tomoka Heights Realty Inc. and owner of Indigo Builders of Lake Placid Inc.; Jon Draper,o wner of Datarep Inc.; Bill Compton, retired president and CEO of Trans World Airlines; Robert Brown, branch manager ofS unTrust Bank in Lake Placid; Jim DiNapoli, owner of Highlands Investment Management; Marlene Barger; and coun-c il member Cheryl Davis. Lake Placid citizens voted down a charter change that would create a town manager position lastN ovember, but Mayor John Holbrook stressed at a previous meeting that although few citizens have come forward to agree with the idea,t he growing needs of the municipality requires the extra administration, You keep saying the people, but very few people have said they want a pub-l ic administrator Holbrook explained at the M ay 23 meeting. But the need for someone to serve full time ist here. I know that the mayor can do that, but with the n eeds of growth and meetings with the county as well as utility concerns, I think we need someone doing this 40 hours a week, Holbrookt old the News-Sun after the meeting. A ccording to Town Attorney Bert J. Harris III, the mayor could justa ppoint and or hire someone to do the job, but H olbrook stated he was looking for more community input. T he Town Administrator Advisory Committee has scheduled a meeting for 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at Town Hall, and will work underF loridas Sunshine Laws, according to Harris. The committee has a target date of Aug. 22 to assemble additional infor-m ation for the council to consider, Barger said. L P Council approves town administrator research committee DesignerDental 2x4 00009917 f rom her organization into the record. The Group strongly urges you to extend the impact fee m oratorium for another year B arger said. We see no credible reason to justify reinstating these fees, which are intended to cover the cost of building infrastructure in response to growth. Unfortunately, Highlands Countys population continues to decline. Commissioner Don Elwell asked for more opinions from those on the committee who voted for the putting the fees back into place. Elwell also asked for the county staff to look at possible ways to fund growth without impact fees. Impact fees have kinda gotten a bad rap. Weve never hada good look to see the effect of impact fees. When we put them in, the economy was heading south. Similarly, we have not seen the effect of what suspending the impact fees has been, Elwell said. I agree that now is not the time for impact fees to go in ...b ut my question is this: If we suspend impact fees, is there a better way to fund growth as ith appens than impact fees? Elwell asked. I dont want to penalize growth, but I want to do the right thing. Elwell also suggested that the county may need to look at the impact fees every six months. I would like to look at the need for impact fees more than just once a year, Elwell said. Stewart explained that staff had been instructed just today to look at alternatives to impact fees, but was hesitant to describe what some of the options might be. Some of the options may look even more onerous than impact fees. And some communities around the state are looking at other options, Stewart said. The county will review the fees again in June 2012. Continued from page 1A referring to how the lay offs will be handled. T he question of which exact individuals will end up without a job doesnt yet h ave an answer. This is because one or more of the three targeted w orkers may be eligible to bump other workers who have less seniority. That is, they may take another workers position. To comp licate things further, a bumped worker may in turn be eligible to bump an even less senior individual. The process takes time to sort out. This is why, D eleon said, he had ordered t he lay offs early, so the matter would be settled byt he time budget discussions begin. He added that another reason for laying off w orkers now is that the 2 010-2011 budget was sound enough to absorb s everance payments Deleon said each laid off worker will receive four w eeks pay. The city is also r eady to help the individuals contact all appropriate agencies in their new job search. D eleon said he had been m aking an effort to cut city e xpenses. He merged the Parks and Recreation Department with the Street Department, for example, in an effort toc ut costs by sharing equipm ent and doing away with a street supervisors position. There are already three vacancies in the department, which he will not fill. Contributing to the citys difficulty at Parks and Recreation is the $158,000c ut in the countys annual contribution toward park maintenance. A t the Monday night m eeting Deleon told the council not all was bad news. The utility and sani-t ation departments are both sound financially, he said, t o the point where the city is able to lower user rates. The utility and sanitation departments, because they earn money for the city, arec alled enterprise funds. But these funds, while e xpected to pay for themselves, may not, by state statute, be put into the gen-e ral fund and used for dayto-day business. T he same applies to money in the infrastructure fund. Deleon said, however,t he city was able to use infrastructure funding to pay off a street bond and t he loan on the new fire truck. We hope for no more lay offs, Deleon said, but there are still difficult choices ahead. I will be meeting with d epartment heads and we will go over their budgets another time; well turn over every stone looking for savings. Deleon and the city council will be discussing thei ssue July 11. Continued from page 1A Impact fees remain suspended and restrict the (talent I dont know who we are leaving out. S teve Picklesimer, president of the Highlands County T eachers Association, told the board that the district advertises exclusively in-h ouse for the first five days only, and the position is o pened to all applicants during the second five days. He added that this is what m ost districts do. Board member Bill Brantley was concerned that teachers who fail in their evaluations would be thef irst to go on the in-house hire list. Principals have the right to pick and choose, Waldron said. They look over the listsa nd have a good idea of which local applicants have good reputations as teachers and which does not. No principal has to hire in-house, she said. Hancock also worries that i n-house applicants have an u nfair advantage, and Tuck s aid that outside applicants might be discouraged from applying. On the other hand, board member Ronnie Jackson saidt hat recommendations for o utside applicants might be q uestionable because there was no way to know their reliability. Being a workshop, no action was taken. Because the policy is an agreement b etween teachers and the dist rict, even if the board decide d to change the policy it would be a complicated process, not based on a boards vote alone.

C M Y K By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondent and DANHOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgThey don't call third base the Hot Corner for nothing. To play third base, one needs to be quick on their feet, have a strong arm, be able to read the batter and most of all have stellar reaction time to cope with the ball usually ripping its way down the left side of the field. Cody Hoffner possesses such qualities, and it is his knack for the position and the game in general that gave him the edge to play ball at the college level. Hoffner's talents showed early on in his high school years, as both his offensive and defensive skills played a major contribution to several successful Sebring seasons. That skill would continue to shine as Hoffner accepted an offer to play at Daytona State on a full scholarship this past year, but not without a little extra heat being turned up on the third baseman. At some point early in the season, Hoffner felt and noticed something not quite right with his ankle. I dont even know how it happened, but I started having a bone sticking out and it was giving me problems, he said. I missed about 15 games, and even when I came back, it was giving me problems. But the gamer battled his way through it for the rest of the season and, judging by his numbers, one might not have noticed anything was wrong. In 30 games played, Hoffner batted .327 with 16 runs scored and 18 RBI. He had a four-hit game against Hillsborough and a three RBI game against S t. Johns River. Hoffners two home runs on the season came four days apart, on March 14 against St. Johns and March 18 versus Florida State College of Jacksonville. Despite the strong num bers, however, the ankle didnt improve and, as it turned out, required surgery four weeks ago. The surgeon told me I was lucky that I had not ripped a tendon, Hoffner said. Then I would have had worse problems. Looking back at the risk he took, that the team took in continuing to play him, despite the lingering pain, Hoffner decided to move on and continue his education and career at Sante Fe in Gainesville next year. It was a lot of things, really, he said. But my progress from the surgery is going as planned and Im really looking forward to getting back at it and playing at 100-percent again. But looking back on his SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, July 1, 2011 Page 3B Courtesy photo Despite the transition to college baseball and an injured ankle, Cody Hoffner had a strong season at Daytona State. Courtesy photo During the Highlands County Special STARS Bowling County Games on June 25, several special athletes received trophies for their outstanding performance in the sport. Those getting awards are (in front, from left) Tim Johnson, Donna Addison, Sara Canali and Greg Robinson; (in back from left) Dennis Taylor, Ruth Hancock, Shawn Squires, Owen Barnhill and Hugh Sims. Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Bowlers were rolling with excitement on Saturday, June 25, at Royal Palms Bowling Center as they competed in the Special STARS Bowling County Games. Special athlete, Markevin Smith, sang the national anthem and the Avon Park Youth Academy presented the colors at the opening ceremony. There were approximately 120 athletes with mental and physical disabilities from all over Highlands County converging in Lake Placid to compete for ribbons and the opportunity to advance to District Games. They trained for three weeks prior to the County Games. Athletes paired up to bowl doubles, teams and singles. Athletes in wheelchairs were able to use ramps and compete. There were two levels of ramp bowling assisted and unassisted. Assisted ramp bowling means a volunteer lines up the ramp for the bowler while the athlete pushes the ball down the shoot. In unassisted, the bowler lines up the ramp on their own. Young men from the Avon Park Youth Academy participated with the special athletes on the teams. Cracker Trail 4-H Club assisted with the lanes and served lunch. Awards were presented after lunch. Special STARS partnered with South Florida Community College Adult Education Program to provide bowling for people with disabilities. This program provides an opportunity for athletes to further develop their motor and socialization skills. Sylvia Turner, SFCC Adult Education Director, was on hand to present awards to the athletes. Special trophies were given for the top athletes in Highlands. Shawn Squires was the Best Overall Bowler by bowling a 207 game and having an average of 187. Squires paired up with Joe Singha to bowl doubles and they won first place. Squires had the top score during County Games with a 187. In addition to Squires, Owen Barnhill won the Best Male Bowler trophy with a 144 game and 117 average; Donna Addison was the Best Female Bowler with a 134 score and 115 average; Sara Canali was Best Ramp Bowler with 149 score and 125 average; Dennis Taylor was the Best and Most Improved Bumper Bowler with a 97 score, 83 average and 16-pin improvement. Trophies were also given to the most improved bowlers such as Hugh Sims on unassisted ramps with a 31 pin improvement; Ti m Johnson on assisted ramps with 22 pin improvement; Greg Robinson for the men with a 38 pin improvement; and Ruth Hancock for the women with a 30 pin improvement. Athletes who placed first and second will be advancing to the District Games in Lake Placid on July 9 to compete against athletes in Hardee and Okeechobee counties. Special STARS is a sports training and recreational services program that is affiliated with Ridge Area Arc and is totally operated by volunteers. It provides more than 1 2 different sports and recreational programs for 250 children and adults with mental and physical disabilities in Hardee and Highlands counties.

Special athletes bowled over with excitement By STEVEN WINE Associated PressBRADENTON The NFLlockout has prevented Marcell Dareus from cashing in on turning pro, so he mows his godfathers lawn in exchange for a place to stay. Other rookies are low on dough, too. Von Miller sleeps in the same room he had in high school. Anthony Castonzo makes deliveries for his parentsrestaurant. And Aaron Williams does ranch work, throwing hay and fixing barbed-wire fences. Acres and acres of land; youre always moving, Williams said. But its better than sitting on your butt playing Xbox. These are odd times for NFLrookies, and more than 150 of them gathered for a symposium sponsored by the players association that concluded Wednesday. This incoming class is unlike any other, because the lockout has indefinitely delayed that first pro paycheck. Guys are hurting for money right now, said quarterback Christian Ponder, a first-round pick by the Minnesota Vikings. Its a crazy time, especially with the uncertainty of when were going to start and get some money in our pocket. To make the situation even more gloomy for players just out of college, the league is pushing for a rookie wage scale as part of a new collective bargaining agreement. NFLCommissioner Roger Goodell and players association chief DeMaurice Smith spoke to the group Wednesday but offered no indication as to when the 4month-old labor dispute might end. NFL rookies anxious to collect 1st paycheck See ROOKIES, Page 4B Guys are hurting for money right now. CHRISTIANPONDER Minnesota draft pick I dont even know how it happened, but I started having a bone sticking out CODYHOFFNER By ALAN SCHER ZAGIER Associated PressST. LOUIS Its almost July, and for college basketball coaches and their assistants, that means a series of trips that makes the conference road schedule look like a drive to the gym. There are more than 230 NCAA-approved events coming up around the country featuring high school stars and potential recruits from the Nike Peach Jam in South Carolina to LeBron Jamesskills academy in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, to any of the five youth tournaments slated for Las Vegas over a single summer weekend. Even as it acts as a gatekeeper for the summer circuit, the NCAAis working to rewrite its mens basketball recruiting rules to try and slim down the season, avoiding potentially unsavory influences of AAU coaches, event operators and other hangers-on who may be looking to ride the coattails of the next superstar. The latest effort comes after conference commisNCAA eyes summer hoops in recruiting rules rewrite See CAMPS, Page 4B Cody Hoffner hobbled, hits his way through See CODY, Page 3B

Toney threw a three-hitter in each game for 4-1 and 5-1 wins, setting a record for the fewest hits allowed in a doubleheader by a pitcher. 1920 Walter Johnson of the Washington Senators defeated the Boston Red Sox 1-0 at Fenway Park with the season's only no-hitter. 1925 Hack Wilson of the New York Giants hit two home runs in the third inning of a 16-7 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in the second game of a doubleheader.Wilson also doubled twice during the game. 1941 Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees singled off Bostons Jack Wilson in the fourth inning, tying Willie Keelershitting streak of 44 games. 1951 Bob Feller of the Indians pitched his third career no-hitter, beating the Detroit Tigers 2-1 in the first game of a doubleheader at Cleveland. 1990 Andy Hawkins of the New York Yankees pitched the sixth no-hitter in the majors this season and the third in less than 48 hours, but lost 4-0 to the Chicago White Sox on two outfield errors in the eighth inning. 1994 Baltimore and California tied a major league record by combining for 11 home runs in the Orioles' 14-7 victory. Jeffrey Hammonds hit two homers for Baltimore. 1997 Detroits Bobby Higginson homered in the first inning against the New York Mets, tying a major league record by homering in four consecutive at-bats over two games.

The previous mark was 83 games by Bobby Thigpen with the Chicago White Sox in 1990 and Lee Smith with St. Louis in 1993. 2009 One run was enough for a victory for three National League teams, the first time in 33 years there were three 1-0 games in one league on the same day. The Mets, Dodgers and Reds came away with 1-0 victories. The last time there were three 1-0 games in one league was Sept. 1, 1976, in the NL. 2009 One day after succumbing to the greatest comeback in Orioles history, the Red Sox staged an improbable rally of their own. Boston used a four-run ninth inning to pull even, Julio Lugo singled in the tiebreaking run in the 11th and Jonathan Papelbon became the teams career saves leader by closing out a 6-5 victory over Baltimore. 2009 Hanley Ramirez extended his RBI streak to 10 games in the Florida Marlins' 5-3 victory over the Washington Nationals.

While it has not always been smooth sailing for SYF, the dedicated folks in the organization have consistently made decisions to advance their program and create the best environment for their players and cheerleaders. We continue to have a strong organization with both the Thunderbolt and Bluestreak Teams; we are looking forward to a great season. Our mission at SYF is to provide a safe, healthy environment to teach the game of football and the fundamentals of sideline cheer. We also believe strongly in putting the right coaches in front of participants in order to mentor them on and off the field. We are working with the high school system in order to make sure that our players understand how they call plays and give the kids an advantage once they get into high school. Anyone interested in volunteering or participating in Sebring Youth Football & Cheer should call President Bob Duncan 449-1012. We will hold another registration on Saturday, July 9, from 9 a.m.Noon at Somos Deli, 209 Circle Park Dr. (Downtown Sebring) Questions regarding registrations call Monica 214-1079. Sebring Youth Football and Cheer gearing up for season APphoto Carolina Panthers draft pick Cam Newton, right, and former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor, left, run through drills with a YMCA summer camp student during a community service event during the NFL Players Associations Business of Football: Rookie Edition seminar at IMG Academies on Wednesday in Bradenton. Negotiations are ongoing, but with training camps scheduled to open in about three weeks, the season remains in jeopardy. You come out of college with plans of making big money, and everything goes on hold, said Dareus, the third overall pick by the Buffalo Bills. It grinds you. Dareus, a 320-pound defensive tackle from Alabama, said he earns his keep while living in Birmingham with his godfather. Everybody calls him Sergeant,because he was a sergeant in the Army, Dareus said. At 6 oclock in the morning, were up cutting grass. He aint playing. Hes crazy about keeping his yard cut. He has kind of a big yard. We cut it twice a week and trim his hedges. Its an all-day thing. When asked if Sergeant provides a push mower or a rider, Dareus groaned. Hes old school. Dareus is hardly the only extraordinary athlete settling for an ordinary summer job. Castonzo, an offensive tackle drafted in the first round by the Colts, is living with his parents in Chicago and making deliveries for their restaurant, just like he did growing up. Hes a bit bigger now, though. When I show up at someones door, a 6-7, 315-pound guy, theyre like, Oooooookay. Put the food over here, please,he said with a laugh. I make basically whatever they tip me. With my parents, Im on a volunteer basis. Im living like Im still a college kid theres no money to spend. Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young is back with his parents, too. They live in Los Angeles, and because he played at Boise State, they appreciate the chance to see more of him lately up to a point. My mom is rooting for the lockout to continue, Young said. But my dad is saying, Get out of the house, son.Hes looking up the latest on the lockout every day and telling me updates. Miller and Ponder said theyre getting by in part because they made money doing rookie-card signings. I saved it up, because I didnt know how long this lockout was going to be, said Miller, the second overall pick by the Denver Broncos. So Ive got a couple of dollars in my pocket. And then theres Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, whos taking the biggest financial hit of any rookie. As the top overall draft pick, he might have commanded $60 million guaranteed under the old system. Newton was spotted Tuesday night in Bradenton grabbing a bite at a 7-Eleven. Continued from 1B Rookies bridging gap sioners asked the NCAAto entirely scrap the July recruiting period. An NCAApanel is instead expected to recommend a reduction in July recruiting, but not its outright elimination. DePaul assistant coach Billy Garrett knows the nuances of summer travel ball better than most: along with his job as a recruiter, his son Billy Jr. is a top prep prospect. The younger Garrett, a 6foot-3 inch point guard entering his junior year, has verbally committed to stay in Chicago and play for his fathers school. Yet hell continue to crisscross the country over the next few months, attending events such as the recent Nike Elite 100 camp for top high school freshmen and sophomores. Anybody thats good wants to play the best, said the elder Garrett, a former college football player whose previous coaching stops include Iowa, Seton Hall and Siena. Current NCAArules provide two 10-day windows for coaches to evaluate prospects: July 6-15 and July 22-31. That means a midsummer schedule packed with events ranging from the Battle of The Ballerz in Tulsa to the L.A. LASTCHANCE College Coach View in Anaheim, Calif. The Division I Leadership Council plans to offer a series of suggested changes for consideration by NCAA members later this year or in early 2012, said Purdue athletic director Morgan Burke, who heads the effort. While Burke said the proposals arent revolutionary, theyre not insignificant. Among the groups expected recommendations, in addition to a reduction in the July recruiting period: lifting the ban on offcampus contacts between coaches and recruits during their junior year; requiring recruits to meet minimum academic standards before they can visit a college campus as a recruit; further restrictions on unofficial visits, with closer scrutiny of how such visits are paid for. College basketball has had an uneasy relationship with non-scholastic travel teams many of which play under the AAU moniker for years. The concern is for potential recruiting violations and improper benefits that result in scandals and hurt the sport. The investment of major equipment and apparrel sponsors in youth teams, Nike, adidas and other shoe companies, has only made things more complicated. Coaches, meanwhile, know their relationships with an AAU contact can help land a recruit for their team, sometimes even going so far as to hire inexperienced assistants with strong grass roots ties. That was the case at Indiana in 2007, where former coach Kelvin Sampson hired AAU coach Travis Steele as the teams video coordinator to help land Eric Gordon. More recently, UCLA coach Ben Howland hired as an assistant 32-year-old Korey McCray, coach of an Atlanta AAU team whose alumni include NBAstars Dwight Howard, Josh Smith and Amare Stoudamire. Yet theyre also aware that rule-breakers in that crowd can bring down a program. In 2004, the NCAAsanctioned Auburn after concluding that summer team coach Mark Komara was essentially a school booster who provided two of his players recruited by Auburn with extra benefits. And a decade ago, Kansas City AAU coach Myron Piggie was convicted of federal fraud and tax evasion charges after he admitted paying five high school stars, often hiding the money in shoe boxes. Both instances led to incremental changes in summer basketball recruiting rules along with calls for more forceful action. I dont know that youre necessarily going to be able to walk away from the summer, Burke said. The third-party influences arent going to go away. And even before the two July recruiting periods, top players do like to play together. At the Nike camp, college basketballs next generation were paired with Nike instructors and well-regarded high school coaches at a Saint Louis University rec center. Campers worked on fundamentals but also spent much of the four-day session in 3-on-3 games as well as daily 5-on-5 contests, culminating with a championship. Mindful of the summer circuit critics, Nike has formed an Elite Youth Basketball League for 40 spring and summer 17-andunder travel teams that includes a regular season and concludes with a 24team championship at the mid-July Peach Jam in North Augusta, S.C. Weve definitely put more of an emphasis on skills development, said Vince Baldwin, Nikes elite youth director of scouting. Kids were playing way too many meaningless games. Like Garrett, who attended the St. Louis event as a parent, Baldwin said the summer circuit has a valuable, if misunderstood, role, especially for college programs with smaller recruiting budgets. It hurts the universities and it hurts the kids, he said, referring to the likely reduction in the July evaluation period. Colleges will make more mistakes about who they recruit. And kids will get overlooked. Similar to members of select soccer programs or summer baseball all-star teams, the basketball players at summer all-star camps are there to match their skills against other top talent, Baldwin said. Most high school games cant provide that sort of environment. Its about the competition, he said. You can watch them compete against other Division I athletes. If you watch a kid at his high school, he might be the only Division I athlete on the court. Burke acknowledged that there are some good things to come out of the camps. But he also stands firmly behind the NCAAs effort to keep those influences in check. There are way too many people out there ... selling a vision that only a few will realize, he said.

C M Y K Associated PressLOS ANGELES Researchers analyzing the genetic makeup of ovarian cancer tumors have found a gene mutation that is surprisingly frequent, suggesting it plays a key role in driving the cancer. The finding, appearing in Thursdays issue of the journal Nature, may eventually lead to tests for earlier diagnosis of the disease and to better treatment. Ovarian cancer kills nearly 14,000 women in the United States each year. Its usually not spotted until at an advanced stage. The gene sequencing was carried out by The Cancer Genome Atlas, a federally funded network of medical centers that analyzed 316 ovarian tumors. Scientists found that 96 percent of the tumors had mutated TP53 genes. The mutations were not present in normal tissue from the patients, showing they arose within the tumors. Normally, the gene directs the cell how to make a protein that acts as a tumor suppressor, keeping cells from growing and dividing uncontrollably. Alterations in nine other genes also played a role in ovarian cancer, though to a much lesser extent, the researchers reported. Among them were the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, which increase the risk of breast and ovarian cancer. In other cancers, there are usually several genes that are involved on almost equal footing, said one of the study authors, Dr. David Wheeler of Baylor College of Medicine. This is an unusual pattern. The new work is producing impressive insights into the biology of ovarian cancer, Dr. Francis Collins, who heads the National Institutes of Health, said in a statement. Among cancers, ovarian is the fifth leading cause of death among women. Aregular pelvic exam is considered the best way to detect ovarian cancer early. The Cancer Genome Atlas was launched in 2006 to unravel the genetic underpinning of cancer.

Can you recommend a natural remedy to treat all those boo boos? P.E., Clackamus, Oregon Answer: Yes, I have just the thing. Not too long ago, a friend of mine took a nasty spill while riding her bicycle. She shared the details of what happened with me, and today, I will share her story with you. My friends nextdoor neighbor asked politely how she was doing after the minor accident, and she confessed to her neighbor that everything hurt. I have just the thing, the neighbor responded and dunked inside her house, emerging a moment later with a jar of calendula cream. Calendula (Calendula officinalis) is an herb that has been used safely all over the world for centuries, specifically for wound healing. My friend decided to give her neighbors cream a try, since she trusted the source. She trusted her because the lady had raised five teenagers who played every sport from soccer to volleyball. If this stuff came with the soccer moms seal of approval, it had to be effective. As my friend relayed her story to me, I became excited to write about it too, since there are no prescription drugs or salves that do all that Calendula can. My friend dabbed the cream on her bruises and scrapes, took a nap and woke up significantly better. Within days, she was as good as new. This inspired me to research calendula. I wish I knew about it when my children were young. Afew European studies have concluded calendula to help soothe wounds and improve healing. It has antifungal, antiviral, and even anti-tumor properties! I think calendula would be fantastic for cradle cap and diaper rashes, or any rash for that matter. You can use it on minor burns, sunburn, bedsores, eczema and poison ivy. Asmall study proved it can ease the pain of radiation-induced dermatitis. Calendula may improve acne too. Health food stores and online retailers sell calendula in cream, lotions, ointments or tinctures. Youll see various brands and companies selling it, a few of which include Boiron, Weleda, California Baby and Hylands. If you are creating a first-aid cabinet, I highly recommend you include Calendula. Put it next to your hydrocortisone and tea tree oil. Calendula is so safe you can literally eat the eat the beautiful yellow flowers from which the cream is made, so long as youre not allergic to flowers in the daisy or marigold family. Calendula extract imparts a beautiful yellow color, so its used as a natural coloring agent in cuisines around the world. Lately, Ive been buying the fresh (and edible version) of flowers from my natural grocer to garnish salads and soups. It makes for a delicious conversation piece at my dinner table. Did you know? Folate found in green leafy veggies (and supplements) was just shown to reduce colon cancer risk. Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions.

First aid ointment comes from Calendula flowers Hookah cafes and lounges may be one of the hottest college town fads to pop up across the nation in the past few years, but for one to pop up in Highlands County has sure surprised many locals. Since its development more than 500 years ago in India, hookah has become a worldwide smoking phenomenon. Hookahs are readily available over the Internet, allowing young adults and adults alike to purchase these strangely shaped smoking devices. The trend has also spread to bars and restaurants, which allows customers to smoke a hookah while also enjoying their favorite meals. Ahookah is used to smoke specially made tobacco that is available in a variety of flavors (e.g., apple, mint, cherry, chocolate). The tobacco is heated, and the smoke passes through water and is then drawn through a rubber hose to a mouthpiece. Hookah smoking is typically practiced in groups with the same mouthpiece passed from person to person and typically lasts for about an hour. Hookah smoking among young adults promotes lifelong nicotine addiction and disease, consequences that last far beyond the college experience, and now the hometown experience that our Highlands County residents will see. Some people believe that smoking from a hookah is safer than smoking cigarettes. This is 100 percent false. Hookah smokers are subject to the same negative health effects as cigarette smokers: lung cancer, heart and respiratory disease and other deadly illnesses. Hookah smoke can contain four times more nicotine than cigarettes and five times the number of cancer causing agents. On average, 45-60 minutes of hookah smoking is the equivalent of chain smoking 15 cigarettes. Hookah tobacco also contains 36 times more tar, 15 times more carbon monoxide and 70 percent more nicotine than cigarette tobacco. And if thats not enough negativity, hookah smoke poses dangers associated with secondhand smoke. Secondhand smoke from hookahs is a serious risk for nonsmokers, particularly because it contains smoke not only from the tobacco but also from the heat source (charcoal) used in the hookah. Moreover, hookah smoking by pregnant women can result in low birth weight babies, premature birth and babies that suffer from respiratory problems. Yet another thing to be aware of is that the pipes used in these hookah bars and cafes may not be cleaned properly, which may increase the risk of transmitting diseases and viruses such as herpes, hepatitis, tuberculosis or other infectious diseases. The fact of the matter is that tobacco is dangerous to your health no matter how it is smoked, hookahs included. So dont believe the hype if someone tells you it is cool or safe to smoke hookah pipes. References: www.cdc.gov/ tobacco/data_statistics/fact_s heets/tobacco_industry/hooka hs/.

My husband is kind,c aring and honest. Our only problem involves jewelry. I m not very good at wearing my wedding ring every day.I can be forgetful and clumsy, and I have misplaced it, almost dropped it down the d rain, etc. I have tried wearing it around my neck, but it just gets in the way. M y husband wears his ring every day and says he doesnt mind if I dont wearm ine because he trusts me. My problem is other people. M y co-workers are suspicious. My family thinks its strange. Men have hit onm e, and when I politely told them Im married, they b ecame angry and asked where my ring is. Abby, I dont do or say anything to lead people on, and I often mention that Imh appily married. Im becoming frustrated and have even c onsidered getting a tattoo on my ring finger so that people know Im married.M y husband says not to let it bother me; that he doesnt c are about what others think. Any suggestions? No Ring on It, C olumbia, Mo. DearNo Ring on It: I do not recommend getting your finger tattooed to allay your co-workerssuspicions orb ecause some fool becomes angry that you dont welcome his advances.

B y DAVID GERMAIN APMovie WriterTo his credit, Michael Bay does try to put more human touch into Transformers: Dark of the Moon, aiming to make up f or the clattering mess of overgrown kitchen appliances that duked it out int he franchises last installment. B ay went to the far side of the moon and even to planet Vulcan, enlistingJ ohn F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Mr. Spock i n search of the human face of the Transformers univ erse. And he came back with another loud, long, bruising and wearisome onslaught of giant, shape-shifting robots.T he human element arises largely from archival footage involving the 1960s moon race, along with images that may disturb younger kids as a succession of screaming, scram-b ling humans are vaporized by the bots like insects in a b ug zapper. In 3-D, too, so you get to wear those clunky glasses for the franchises longest movie yet. I t really felt like people didnt matter in 2009s ransformers: Revenge of the Fallen, a mega-blockbuster despite being littlem ore than a turgid assemblage of computer-generated machine parts thrashing about. So Bay and his collaborators set out to show the flesh-and-blood consequences in the war between the benevolent Autobots and their evil counterparts, the Decepticons. But human consequence in a Bay flick means more shots of Shia LaBeouf bellowing while he and his pals get battered around amid the mayhem. The action sequences drag on and on, and while the stunts and digital imagery are even more dazzling than the visuals of Bays first two ransformers tales, it all flies by in such frenzy that it remains a challenge to figure out whos who, which robot is which, and what machines you should be rooting for. Its a thin line between the idiotically incomprehensible Revenge of the Fallen and the merely i ncomprehensible of Dark of the Moon. U nlike Revenge of the Fallen, part three actuallyh as a plot, or at least starts with one before the movie lapses into nonsense. Returning screenwriter Ehren Kruger weaves in a1 960s prologue as NASA tracks the crash of an alien ship on the moon, prompting Kennedy to order a salvage mission under cover ofh is call to beat the Russians to the lunar surface (along with Kennedy, the prologue features archival footage of Nixon and moon walkers Armstrong and Aldrin, the latter also turning up in a cameo as himself in present times). The crashed vessel carried technology that was the last hope of the Autobots in their losing battle against the Decepticons on their home world. It also carried the leader of the Autobots, Sentinel Prime (voiced by Leonard Nimoy, who also is seen briefly as Vulcan Spock from a Star Trek episode as Paramount Pictures forges a strange marriage of its two big sci-fi franchises). Sentinel Prime is revived by his protigi and successor, Optimus Prime (again voiced by Peter Cullen), and the two lead their scant Autobot forces and human allies against Decepticon leader Megatron (Hugo Weaving) in the race to recover the lost technology. E arths fate is again in the balance, with LaBeoufs Sam Witwicky naturally at the center of things. Bay cast out Megan Fox asS ams girlfriend, replacing her with new romantic intere st Carly (Victorias Secret model Rosie HuntingtonWhitely, who makes al aughably titillating, skinbearing entry into the m ovie, reminiscent of Foxs introduction in the last one). Like Fox, HuntingtonW hitely is never expected to do more than look hot while in deathly peril in the c lutches of hulking robots, so in that regard at least, her b ig-screen debut is a success. LaBeouf is reunited with Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson as leaders of theh uman strike forces, along with John Turturro as a former government operative who jumps back into the battle. Some genuine humor arises early on, courtesy ofJ ohn Malkovich as Sams quirkily autocratic new boss a nd Frances McDormand as a supremely capable but bythe-book intelligence chief (hearing Academy Award winner McDormand statew ith conviction that its some sort of prototype Autobot technology is a natural giggle). Alan Tudyk provides a f ew laughs as Turturros unstable assistant, while Patrick Dempsey manages at least one chuckle as Carlys wealthy boss, a guy who talks up the need to liaise with the humungous robots. As they always are, Kevin Dunn and Julie White are annoying as Sams parents, whose roles serve no purpose this time and could have been jettisoned to save precious time. Whatever humor the movie offered fades as Bay ratchets up the relentless action, the battles grinding on so long that the motion and noise turns numbing (the mind really can wander during all this ruckus; stare long enough at some of the Decepticonsflying machines and they oddly start to resemble jumbo shrimp). The 3-D images generally are crisp, avoiding the blurriness that has spoiled some 3-D tales.

C M Y K LIVING 10B PA GE News-Sun Friday, July 1, 2011 REMOVE ACCESSORIESDont wear jewelry or fake nails while cooking. Remove all rings, bracelets and wristwatches. They can harbor bacteria and contaminate food, says Bruce Staebler, a certified executive chef and former head of the kitchen at Saint Agnes Medical Center in Fresno, Calif. As for fake nails, they can fall into food, he says.WASH HANDSWash your hands often and properly. Wash them before preparing or serving food, and after touching raw meat, poultry, seafood and produce, Staebler says. When washing hands, rub soap into them for 15 seconds before rinsing off, Hudson says. Washing your hands for that long will kill the bacteria, she adds. If you shorten that time frame, it only makes the bacteria stronger. Also, if you wash your hands according to these guidelines, anti-bacterial soap is not necessary, she says.WASH PRODUCE, NOT MEATSWash your fruits and veggies, but not your meats. The CDC recommends washing all produce under running water before prepping or eating. Use a brush to scrub off any stubborn dirt, Staebler says. Keep the running water at about the same temperature as the produce, Hudson says. Any severe change in temperature opens up the skin (of fruits and vegetables to absorb into the skin. By contrast, Hudson doesnt recommend washing meat, especially chicken. With chicken, theres a lot of salmonella, she says. People rinse their chicken and they contaminate their sinks. All youre doing is spreading the salmonella around your kitchen. If you cook meat to proper internal temperatures, the heat will kill salmonella that may have been on the surface.CHECK THE TEMPERATURECook all types of poultry to 165 degrees. Combination foods, such as frozen lasagna and other prepared dishes to be reheated, also should reach 165 degrees for 15 seconds, she says. All types of ground meat (excluding poultry reach 155 degrees. And cook seafood, steaks, pork chops and eggs (poached, scrambled or fried) to 145 degrees.SANITIZEClean and sanitize. Heres a typical scenario: A home cook slices poultry or meat on a cutting board, transfers the meat to a plate, then washes the board with soap, water and a sponge before using it to chop vegetables. Does this prevent the spread of bacteria? No. The sponge cleaned the cutting board but didnt sanitize it. Theres a difference between cleaning and sanitizing, says Don Waddell, the culinary division director at the Institute of Technology in Clovis. Cleaning means wiping off visible debris, he says. Sanitizing reaches the microscopic level. Sanitizers include Clorox Anywhere Hard Surface daily sanitizing spray or Lysol Food Surface Sanitizer. Neither is appropriate for wooden cutting boards, but plastic ones are OK. Follow this method of preparing food if you have only one cutting board: Slice bread (or other shelfstable items) on the board, and transfer to a plate. Then cut cleaned fruits and vegetables on the board, and set them aside on a plate. Wash the cutting board, knives and sink with hot soap and water, spray with sanitizer and let them air dry. If raw produce touched the counter, clean and sanitize that as well. Then cut all of your meats and seafood, set them aside on a plate, and clean and sanitize everything again. All of this cleaning in the middle of food pre p c an get unwieldy when youre pressed for time. I s easier to keep two cutting boards and knives for each board. Just remember to put protein on one cutting board, veggies on another, Staebler says. Then turn the veggie one over and slice bread. Youll still have to wash your hands and sink (and countertops, if raw, perishable food touched them) in the middle of prep. But if you keep the cutting boards and knives separate, you can skip cleaning and sanitizing them until youre done. For the final cleaning, use the dishwasher to sanitize plastic cutting boards. Just be sure to run the high-heat rinse and high-heat dry cycles, Hudson says. The energy-saving settings wont be hot enough. A lso clean and sanitize countertops after eac h cooking session. And dont forget the sponges. Dampen them with water, then microwave each of them for 20-30 seconds at high heat. Zap them one at a time to prevent fires, Hudson says.STORE SAFELYStore food properly. This advice from the CDC is a no-brainer: Keep produce meant to be eaten raw separate from other raw foods. As for cooked food, it should be stored belo w 41 degrees within two hours. Thats because bacteria thrives in a danger zone of 135-141 degrees, Hudson says. Theres also a rapid growth zone for bacteria, which is 125-170 degrees. If you get out of the danger zone within tw o hours, she adds, youll have a better chance of slowing down the growth. Given this advice, you never should place a large pot of steaming food directly into the refrigerator or freezer, Staebler says. In addition to heating up the surrounding space, it wont cool quickly enough. Instead, spread the food onto a shallow pan to help it cool faster. Refrigerate after the steam disperses. To store the pot itself, first cool its contents to 70 degrees, Hudson says. Place the pot in a sink filled with ice water, stir its contents, check its temperature with a thermometer and refrigerate. To freeze, transfer cooled food to smaller containers. Label the containers with the date and contents, then store and eat wit hin three to six months (or sooner, if a recipe tells you to).THAW SAFELYThaw frozen food in the refrigerator. But if youre in a pinch, thaw a container under cold, running water, Staebler says. Once youve thawed the food, eat it within three days for optimum safety. The same goes for refrigerated leftovers. And when serving, its best to discard perishable food after four hours at room temperature. If youd like to save leftovers, then refrigerate within three hours. But if youre serving food in hot weather, such as a picnic, then throw away all leftovers. Use common sense. When in doubt, throw it out, Staebler says. If people would just use common sense, they probably would eliminate 80 percent of foodborne illness in the home. Reduce your chances of getting sick with these food-handling tipsBYJOANOBRAMcClatchy Newspapersf you follow the news about foodborne illnesses, you might wonder about the safety of our meats, fruits and vegetables. Theres good news and bad news. First, the bad: About 76 million cases of foodborne illnesses occur each year in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Taken together, foodborne illnesses result in 325,000 hospitalizations and 5,000 deaths yearly. Heres the good news: The majority of cases are mild, according to the CDC. Also, improper food handling causes many cases of foodborne illness. That means you can take steps to protect yourself, says Molly Hudson, a food-safety instructor in the Institute of Technologys culinary program in Clovis, Calif. To minimize your chances of falling ill, weve collected these food-safety tips used in commercial kitchens.ILLUSTRATIONS BY BOB CAMPBELL/MCT
